Alan Dershowitz Sees Civil Liberties Under Attack With Media-Political Mobbing Of Trump

Off-topic today. (Don’t worry, the climate isn’t going anywhere.) Like many of us, I’m quite surprised by the absurd calls for impeachment of a President who has done nothing wrong. Just because he does things people don’t agree with and is sand in the Establishment machinery, this in no way constitutes grounds for impeachment. It’s a grand […]

What A Stunning Comeback!

What A Stunning Comeback!

The Atlanta Falcons and Roger Goodell have got to be feeling like Hillary Clinton right now. I have to admit I went to bed after it was 21 – 0 (2 a.m. Central European Time) thinking it was over — and not caring at all for the likely idiotic halftime show. Much to my delight, […]

US Asked To Consider “Criminal Proceeding” Against ZDF Public Television For “Defaming” Trump, Trivializing Holocaust

It appears leftists have made it a habit of comparing anyone who disagrees with their views to Hitler/Nazis.

Scientific ‘Consensus’ Says ‘Global Warming’ Leads To Less Intense, Less Frequent Hurricanes

A few days ago, “Hurricane” Matthew weakened into a Category 1 storm by the time it made landfall in the U.S., which means its official title has been changed to “post-tropical storm Matthew“.  Because it lost so much intensity and could no longer be considered a real hurricane as it made landfall, this development has […]

For going on 3 decades now, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports have estimated that the climate’s sensitivity to the doubling of preindustrial levels of CO2 (from 280 ppm to 560 ppm) may range between 1.5°C to 4.5°C due significantly to the assumed “dangerous” warming amplification from positive water vapor feedback.  Despite years of […]
