Obama's Socialist Science Czar John Holdren in 1971: "New Ice Age" Likely

Yes, he believed global cooling before he believed global warming. In other words, he's an idiot and cultivates hysteria.

Posted by: AmericanToTheCore at September 18, 2009 7:30 AM

Anyone watch "Jeopardy" last night? HAR! What a hoot! It was a celebrity edition, where celebrities compete and raise money for their favorite charities. Last night featured actress Dana Delany from China Beach fame and currently Desperate Housewives (I've never watched) playing for Scleroderma Research Foundation, comedian Andy Richter from Conan O'Brien's show (on waaay too late for me) playing for St. Jude's Children's Hospital, and CNN's Wolf Blitzer, (can't stand CNN) playing for American Cancer Society. All are well deserving charities. Guess who won. The Emmy Award-winning actress? No. The world-traveled, seen it and reported on it all Edward R. Murrow wanna-be news correspondent? No. The cut up comedian? Yes! On regular Jeopardy, if a contestant finishes in the red, he/she can't compete in final Jeopardy. Those are the rules. On celebrity Jeopardy, any contestant who finishes in the red is spotted with a handicap of $1000.00, so they all compete in answering the final Jeopardy clue.

It might be my imagination, but when celebrities compete in Jeopardy, the clues seemed to be dumbed down. Some of the clues were "smarter than a fifth grader" level. Wolf Blitzer's score on the front of his podium spent more time in the red than Dana's or Andy's. Bottom line, the comedian kicked Blitzer's and Delany's asses.

All celebrities on celebrity Jeopardy win at least a minimum amount for their respective charities, but it was sooooo cool seeing Blitzer get his ass kicked by the fuuny guy comic actor and O'Brien's side-kick. Made my day!

The FHA has dropped below its congressional mandated reserves. Hey barry the assmaggot, you totally own this one, you can not blame it on President Bush.

Who could have seen this coming?

he believed global cooling before he believed global warming

It's all been a feignt. We were supposed to believe the left was obsessed with sex, but all this time, their obsession's actually been with weather.

In any event, he was probably on better footing in 1971 than now. My vegetable plants are all falling over from the bitter arctic gusts of ... September, here in wintery Virginia. Oh wait, global warming doesn't have anything to do with temperatures or weather, or something.

Theres a 70s program called IN SEARCH OF hosted by LEANARD NEMOY its had one episode about a possible NEW ICE AGE and GLOBAL COOLING it should be on DVD and avable to the public so we can see the other side along with THE GLOBAL WARMING SWINDLE and another one THE GREENHOUSE CONSPERACY

Posted by: SPURWING PLOVER at September 18, 2009 8:39 AM

I remember when Spock was on In Search Of - where the day would soon come when the snow in Buffalo wouldnt melt even in Summer. I also remember teachers handing out articles on how we were all going to freeze to death by the year 2000 unless we dumped black soot on the polar ice caps to melt them and suck up energy from the Sun.

Obama: Legalize illegals to get them health care


Posted by: J at September 18, 2009 8:52 AM

J, thats the kind of shell game Obama and his minions like to play.+

Its like them saying you can keep your health plan and your doctor if you like them. But if your company health plan goes away? Well.... the reason why the house plan is talking about an 8% tax on employers who dont provide health insurance is they know most plans cost companies more than 8%, so its more cost effective for those companies to dump their company health plan and let them sign up for the Pubic Option - oops, I meant Public Option. So technically Obama isnt lying, he just being deceptive.

Posted by: Bad Robot at September 18, 2009 9:42 AM

Bad Robot, a bad liar to boot, since we can all see right through his stupid shell game. How dumb he must think we are!

Still stupid, huh?

Climate change is happening. Is it colder? Is it warmer? (both answers are 'yes', in case that was at any point unclear. I could explain it to you, but somehow I doubt you would get it even if I use very small words.)...

More of the head-in-the-sand mentality of the lunatic fringe... "nothing is relevant until it is a crisis!"

What hapens on that day when you can't pretend anymore? It isn't just the economy, it is the SPECIES that will be in trouble then.

I for one remain glad that people far more intelligent than you are paying attention and devising ways to combat climate change... think this through: even if humans aren't responsible for it (whatever, it makes no difference), climate change is capable of altering the long-term survival of the human race.

Clearly the answer is "we shouldn't pay any attention or do anything about it", right?

I am well aware that 'conservatives' will someday be responsible for dooming humanity... I guess I was just hoping you would wait awhile.

Karin, unfortunately, alot of Americans arent smart enough to figure things out and have no idea what Obama and his minions are up to. And the media doesnt help matters by hiding the truth.

Strangely enough it may be a good thing that Obama won in November. If McCain were President he would get all the blame and not Congress, making it easier for Democrats to retain control. With an over the top neo Marxist like Obama as Prez and Congress with its filibuster proof Democrat majority - they can only blame Conservatives for so long. Hopefully this time Republicans wont blow it the same way they did when Bush won in 2000 and they started acting like Democrats-lite (at least on Domestic policy). Lately it seems like most of them have gotten the message and are figuring out that acting like Democrats wont win them elections.

Posted by: Bad Robot at September 18, 2009 10:21 AM

Are you mental is so totally Mental!

Show me A good scientific study that hasn't been refuted that proves that man is heating the earth.
Can't do it can you? No such thing exits except in the warped mind of hansen and his playstation weather games. Even he admits that they don't take into account quite a few factors that drive the climate.

Go ahead and keep screeming shrilly like Monbiot and gore at your altar. This makes us laugh since you mock our religion, yet you worship your own. Morons.

Posted by: Stephana at September 18, 2009 10:22 AM

Here's your link to an article by Jesse Washington. Washington covers race and ethnicity for The Associated Press. Washington says that all of these claims of racism out there are taking a word that once had some power and turning it into nothing more than a spitball. He quotes one John McWhorter, who studies race and language at the Manhattan Institute: "It gets to the point where we don't have a word to use to call people racist who actually are."

Dueling 'racist' claims defuse once powerful word

Use it all you want lefty's, everytime you do you cheapen it!

Thank goodness AGW has saved us.

Here's the Wolf Blitzed Jeopardy video. I love how they employ socialist equalization techniques to try to pull him out of the pit by changing his score from -$4,600 to +$1,000 for the final round of Jeopardy. But alas, it was too little socialism, too late. He bombed.

New Government Policy Imposes Strict Standards on Garage Sales Nationwide

Americans who slap $1 pricetags on their used possessions at garage sales or bazaar events risk being slapped with fines of up to $15 million, thanks to a new government campaign.

The Easy-Bake Oven, made for ages 8 & up, was recalled because if kids put their fingers in the slot they could get stuck or burn themselves.

Climate change to a moonbat is disastarous. To normal people it's called Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter.

Posted by: Farmer Ted at September 18, 2009 12:18 PM

Wow, Mental, are you a real Kool-Aid drinker! You buy into this gigantic hoax without the slightest hesitation, yet accuse "conservatives" of destroying the planet (well, thanks, but I have to give the credit to all of Obambi's friends, you know, like the Red Chinese [the most polluted nation on Earth], the Russians [who I'm sure really, really care about the environment; their No. 1 priority, no doubt] and every tin-horn dictator from ACCCCH-ma-nutjob to 'Ugo Chavez [AGW is right at the top of their "to do" lists, I'm sure, right after obtaining nuclear weapons -- ooooh, there's some REAL climate change, ol' bud!]).

But don't worry! If it gets too cold, you can always move to Venus; too hot, off you go to Mars -- problem solved. Bye, now, and have good trip!

I for one remain glad that people far more intelligent than you are paying attention and devising ways to combat climate change...

So... you're going to fight nature? What's next, defeating gravity? Oh, how 'bout we force the Earth to rotate vertically and change our revolution path around the sun.

Sound stupid? Yeah, they are, much like your attempt to defeat climate change by causing, DING, MORE CLIMATE CHANGE. That's seriously what you're arguing.

That's like saying we can save money by spending more money. In other words, you're in fantasyland.

Climate change is happening.

Begs the question. Look up what that means.

It isn't just the economy, it is the SPECIES that will be in trouble then.

Calm down. Breath slowly in and out of a paper bag. There, there. The sky isn't falling.

Better now?

Now, let's look at all the deadly threats we've faced down. There was the Paul Ehrlich's population bomb ("Overpopulation! Famine! Wars! We're doomed!"). Sold lots of books, generated lots of concern and furrowed brows among liberals, but that was about it. Then there was the ozone hole ("Ultraviolet rays! Hairspray! Famine! Cancer! We're doomed!"). Got CFCs banned, but the ozone hole today is...wait for it...larger than ever. Ah well. Then there was acid rain ("Crops destroyed! Famine! Lung disease! We're doomed!"). Killer bees? ("Destroy honey bees! Crops won't be pollinated! Famine! We're doomed!"). Y2K? ("All computers will lock up! Banks – no money! Power stations! No power! Riots! Famine! We're doomed!"). Result: bupkis. Shark summer? ("Sharks are eating everyone! We're doomed!"). See the common denominator?

But despite all of these existential threats, we're still here. Kinda reassuring, isn't it? And just for a moment, just to yourself – no need to admit it to us or anyone else – reflect on the possibility that some might just find whipping up climate hysteria a good way to mobilize people to do...what those doing the cheerleading wanted to do all along. I'm not asking you to believe that, but rather to admit – again, to yourself – that, yes, the facts also fit that hypothesis. It's the perfect cause: do what we want now, or else everyone will die a century from now. How can you disprove that? Ask yourself further this one question: where would Al Gore be today without global warming? Did it, or did it not, rescue his career from the crapper? Think about it.

Man, I'm not having a garage sale now, just gonna send it to Goodwill and let them worry about it. But where am I supposed to get my Jarts? Dammit, I want Jarts.

The Sexual Evolution of Tweens to Teens

Ever wonder what effect the disintegration of society’s moral fiber is having on kids?

I mean, how does the unremitting barrage of gay-themed tv shows, bed-hopping celebs trading partners and flaunting their baby bumps sans wedding rings, and movies, MTV videos, rap music verily bubbling with sex episodes influence young children?

This is hardly a revelation but that influence isn’t a good one and bodes ill for the physical, emotional, and psychological future of the next generation. Both teens and tweens are members of that generation.

For those who don’t keep up with such things, “tween” is a relatively new term in the sociological lexicon.

Generally, it designates kids aged 9-12 who haven’t quite made it to the mad, mad world of teenagery, yet, in their own minds, at least, are close enough and some are crazed enough to join in the antics of some of their older peers.

To date, no word has surfaced that tweens are into the dangerous worlds of sexting, although that too is possible for the more physically mature, less discreet types, as is the phenomenon of “rainbow parties.” For the terminally curious, that term is graphically defined by

Michelle Malkin has described an “educational” book on the latter subject, giggled over by adults on Oprah, as just plain “smut:”

The trickle down effect of our super-infused sex culture has now reached kids as young as 11, as evidenced by the latest socially-rebellious tween fad.

Striving above all else to be cool, accepted, and “with it,” the in-crowd of tweenies is now sporting bling, multi-colored bracelets, to advertise their proclivities and what they agree to do sexually.

As one website,, explains it, “For years, teens have been playing a game called Snap, in which boys try to break bracelets off girls. Different colored bracelets represent different sexual acts, which if broken, are supposed to be performed by the girls:”

I’m guessing that playing the once daring game of Spin the Bottle is no longer a popular indoor sport among the tweenie set.

Over in England, where sex scandals are as common as tea and crumpets, it’s not too uncommon for 15 year olds to get pregnant and for 13 year olds to impregnate them, (remember Alfie?), the Brits are now permitting 12 year olds to choose their gender.

The presumptive heir to England’s throne, Bonnie Prince Charlie, set the standard for his future subjects when he professed an unquenchable desire some years back to be his paramour’s tampon.

They’re now allowing, if not encouraging, lads to become lassies and vice versa. . .

The Persecution of Glenn Beck, Conservative: Part One

I must be an ignoramus. Many people would comment, “Well, isn’t that obvious?”

I don’t really think it is that obvious since I usually try to deftly conceal my duncehood but I do admit to being ignorant about Glenn Beck until a few years ago.

I was acquainted with his name in, of all places, an AOL political chat room when a leftist impolitely and derogotatively told me I could shove my views where the sun don’t shine, where “Limbaugh, Hannity, and Beck hide.” The leftist didn’t use the sun metaphor but you get the point.

I got the point that I should find out more about this Beck guy. After all, if he aroused such bile and venom in a lefty, America-hating bed wetter, he just had to be my kind of guy.

Hold off, gay boys, I don’t mean my kind of guy in your sense.

I discovered a great deal about this perceived conservative devil, this Glenn Beck originally from the state of Washington, of his family background which included suicides, his own addictions, his own dealings with the dark side of life, his eventual conversion to Mormonism.

Other details of his life are available all over the internet so I won’t bore the reader with them. Suffice to say, Beck evolved into a conservative, libertarian talk show host and Fox News commentator, prima facie evidence that he was a nutcase.

As such, he became a prime target of the disturbed left.

Like Limbaugh, . . .
