Coming Soon . . . Global Warming Skepticism Illegal *UPDATE*

Steve McIntyre tears to shreds an anti-speech ruling by the British equivalent of the FCC, Ofcom.  Ofcom ruled that a documentary “The Great Global Warming Swindle” violated rules, essentially, because the producers presented evidence contrary to the party line of the United Nations and the Labor government. In other words, in the UK, thou shalt…

More on Hansen’s Fraud

While my flaming headline (“Dr. James Hansen of GISS is a Liar and Fraud“) received a fair amount of attention, people a lot smarter than I are carefully documenting the facts that led to my unavoidable conclusion. One such appears on the Telegraph today.  Christopher Booker (corrected link) notes that Dr. Hansen’s GISS center is…

Obama’s 180 on Troops in Iraq

The boy-candidate has changed his mind again.  For the second third fourth umpteenth time in a week, Barack Obama has shifted his view of how long American forces must stay in Iraq.  His latest position “articulated” Saturday in an interview with Newsweek parrots the long-held positions of the Bush administration and of rival John McCain: …

Obama Caught Lying Like a Hansen on Climate Change

TigerHawk decided to fact-check Obama’s pontifical address to his German subjects concerning the messiah’s “facts” about global warming (h/t Hackbarth).  Like Hansen and Gore, Obama enjoys lying to the people.  TigerHawk shows academic research that report sea levels falling, not rising, and Kansas not in a drought, but normal to exceptionally moist. I’m not surprised…

Rare Arrogance

Barack Obama’s most conspicuous quality, if you want to call it that, is shameless arrogance. His trip abroad was like Hitler’s tour of Italy in 1938.  Before you dismiss my view as that of a party hack tearing down the opposition, read Susan Estrich’s column on FoxNews.com. (Estrich was Michael Dukakis’s campaign manager in 1988).…

Obama Round-Up: Gateway Pundit

The best Obama round-up is on The Gateway Pundit.  Obama’s so anti-American and so, well, stupid, that it’s difficult for me to keep up with his antics.  It’s nice to know that someone has it covered. By the way, you cannot vote for Obama and call yourself and American patriot.  Unless you’re really dumb.

Who Else Believes Hansen a Fraud?

Brian Sussman writing on American Thinker, for one. In an article titled, “James Hansen:  Abusing the Public Trust,” Sussman writes: Topping it all, Hansen has allegedly received hundreds of thousands of additional dollars to further politicize the issue of global warming.  According to Investors Business Daily, “How many people, for instance, know that James Hansen,…

David Shipley Dispenses With Objectivity

On Friday, the New York Times refused to publish an op-ed piece by Republican nominee John McCain (FoxNews.com).  This might be the first time in American history that a newspaper turned down a column by a presidential candidate from a major party.  According to Jonathan Martin of Politico, the Times demanded that McCain include “timetables”…

King of Beers Dethroned

Since A-B sold out to Belgian brewer InBev, things have changed in the St. Louis bar scene. In a typical St. Louis County strip-mall bar during a Friday happy hour about 70 percent of the male patrons would sit behind an Anheuser-Busch product–Budweiser, Bud Select, Bud Light, Michelob Ultra, even Busch. Not anymore. I stopped…

Leave Me the F*** Alone, Nannies!

It took the nanny-staters to more than a minute to scream at low-carb dieters like me about the Mediterranean Diet study released today. The study shows that Atkins-like, low-carbohydrate diets are the most effective kind for both weight loss and good health.  That joys me, because the only way I can lose and keep of…
