Another scientist says GW is a myth

A Danish scientist says global warming is more political than scientific.

University of Copenhagen Professor Bjarne Andresen has analyzed the topic in collaboration with Canadian Professors Christopher Essex from the University of Western Ontario and Ross McKitrick of the University of Guelph.

"It is impossible to talk about a single temperature for something as complicated as the climate of Earth," said Andresen, an expert on thermodynamics. "A temperature can be defined only for a homogeneous system. Furthermore, the climate is not governed by a single temperature. Rather, differences of temperatures drive the processes and create the storms, sea currents, thunder, etc. which make up the climate".

He says the currently used method of determining the global temperature -- and any conclusion drawn from it -- is more political than scientific.

Al Gore thought he was ‘home free’ with his quasi-documentary scare film. If scientists around the world keep stepping forward challenging the man-made global warming myth, will Gore back down and revise his movie or quietly stop promoting it and let it die?


Troops will stay in Iraq if Hillary is elected

Hillary (pictured) says she will leave troops in Iraq if she is elected.

This is the same person who wanted the troops pulled out of Iraq.

In outlining how she would handle Iraq as commander in chief, Mrs. Clinton articulated a more-nuanced position than the one she has provided at her campaign events, where she has backed the goal of “bringing the troops home.”

Well, I guess if Kerry can flip-flop, why can’t she?

The great global warming swindle

Each week there is more global warming skepticism appearing in various news articles on the Internet.

We don’t see this reported widely here in the United States where the media is still bowing down to the idol of Al Gore and his scare movie.

There is a British documentary called: The Great Global Warming Swindle. An abbreviated ten-minute version can be found here.

And how about the global warming proponents who were trekking the Arctic to prove global warming? They had to call off their trip because one of them got frostbite on their feet because the temperatures were 58-100 below zero.

Their explanation was that the extreme temperatures were typical of global warming. Did they think it never got cold at the north pole before global warming?

Their stunt was useless anyway because it could not have shown that, if they did find evidence of warming, it was man-made.

It seems the poor misdirected souls got frostbite for nothing.

Stories about the video can be found here and here.

Americans see media aiding moral decline

A recent National Cultural Values Survey found:

If the media continue to "singularly promote" secular values while undermining orthodox faith and values, it will be very difficult to reverse America's moral decline.

"Americans who care about the nation's moral condition should insist that the media strive to more fairly represent all views, including those of the orthodox," the report stated.

The survey of 2,000 American adults shows that the nation's culture war is grounded in disagreements over religious issues, such as God's role in life and whether religious belief is essential for a good and moral life.


White House mulled firing all US attorneys in 1994

At the start of President Bush’s second term, the chief White House lawyer suggested the dismissal of all 93 U.S. attorneys.

The Justice Department objected and eventually recommended the eight dismissals that have generated a political firestorm two years later.

Is there a precedent for such a bold move? Yes, Bill Clinton did it for the first time ever in 1993.

The New York Times reported the event on March 24, 1993:

Attorney General Janet Reno [pictured] today demanded the prompt resignation of all United States Attorneys.

The Bush dismissals are causing a firestorm now, yet when Clinton fired all U.S. Attorneys it hardly caused much more than a ripple largely because the liberal media reported the incident but glossed over the multitude of objections.

Now the liberals want Bush’s Attorney General to resign but there was no hint that Clinton’s Attroney General should have resigned in 1993.

Claims she is the JFK of 2008

Desperate to grasp at any edge she can, Hillary Clinton (pictured) infers she will be the JFK of 2008.

She compares her desire to be the first woman president to John F. Kennedy who was the first Catholic president.

The comparison is as invalid as any other comparison between her and JFK, other than that they are/were both Democrats.

Hillary is no JFK!


House bill would block credit cards for illegals

Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) seeks to close the loophole in U.S. banking that allows banks to issue credit cards to illegals who have no social security numbers.

Bank of America caused a stir when they announced the availability of credit cards to illegals. The cards did not require social security numbers.

Jacques Chirac to step down as leader of France

Jacques Chirac (pictured) announced he would not seek reelection next month after 45 years in front-line politics.

Chirac, 74, has served as head of state since 1995 and leaves behind a checkered record that consists as much of symbolic gestures as concrete policies.

Socialists will hope he is succeeded by another permissive president who will allow further political drifting to the left.

What the country needs is a forceful leader who will nurture capitalism before France has a complete financial collapse.

A more pressing problem facing the new president is out of control immigration from the Mid-East.

Chirac leaves a difficult legacy for his successor, with the economy underachieving, the state heavily indebted, unemployment stubbornly high, and social tensions still simmering after 2005 rioting in poorer suburbs.

The decline of France under the leadership of Jacques Chirac is nearly immeasurable.


Nevada Democrats will not debate

Democrats refuse to participate in the Fox News debate in Nevada., a radical group that has said they ‘own’ the Democratic party, is in complete control of the Nevada Democratic Caucus.

News organizations will want to think twice before getting involved in the Nevada Democratic Caucus which appears to be controlled by radical fringe out-of-state interest groups, not the Nevada Democratic Party.

Bill Edwards has said any Democrat would not get a fair shake with Fox News.

Edwards, along with most of the other Democrats, are afraid of any connection with a news organization that is not pro-liberal. If a news organization is not liberal, Edwards and most of his fellow Democrats, accuse the news source of being prejudiced against them.

Edwards and other Democratic politicians are accustomed to the friendly confines of pro-liberal news organizations such as CNN and MSNBC and, to a lesser degree, CBS and NBC.

ABC Evening News with Charles Gibson has the least liberal bias of the commercial networks. Is that why Gibson has surpassed, and continues to pull ahead of, Katie Couric and Brian Williams?

Democrats have been accustomed to being coddled by the media so much over the years they bristle at the thought of a moderate news organization asking them hard questions.

It is interesting that the moderate Fox News has more viewers than all of the other cable news networks combined as shown here.

Lying about the Libby case

A Scripps News article here says:

Lewis "Scooter" Libby stands convicted of telling lies to the FBI and a grand jury, whereas happy-faced, opportunistic Democratic leaders and the man who started this whole, awful charade, Joseph Wilson, are merely telling lies to the public.

Unlike the former adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney, of course, they won't be found guilty of a felony or face the possibility of years in prison, but they should pay a penalty for their misstatements, something on the order of a total loss of credibility and widespread disgust.

It won't happen, I am afraid, because it's been a complicated, slowly evolving case that the left has assiduously misconstrued. When Senate Democratic leader Harry Reid says it's "about time someone in the Bush administration has been held accountable for the campaign to manipulate intelligence and discredit war critics," echoing statements by other Democrats, many citizens will likely think he's merely saying the obvious.

In fact, the statement illustrates that Reid either doesn't have an honest bone in his body or is so utterly incompetent that he failed to grasp two things: what went on in court and a 2004 bipartisan report by the Senate intelligence committee. It showed conclusively that it wasn't the Bush administration doing the manipulating in this case. It was Wilson.

You won’t find this story in the New York Times and you won’t find it on CNN.

The liberal media doesn’t want us to learn that this case was as full of holes as Swiss cheese.

Compare this to the Sandy Berger case as reported here.

Will Rogers had it right

Will Rogers said the problem with political jokes is they often get elected.
