Obama Demonstrating His Impotence

Published by under All General Discussions

Boy, if our lame duck President needed to emphasize how much political capital he has lost, all he needed to do was try and demand time in front of Congress late in the game. Which he of course did. And the petulant POTUS tried to upstage a GOP presidential candidate debate to boot! Since Obama […]

President’s Fraudulent Bus Tour – Fraud Was In The Story?

Published by under All General Discussions

Major Update: Some have questioned whether it is even possible to do plane rides given the path of the bus tour. After doing some Google Map analysis I agree that the story seems to be a fraud. There are no airports large enough to accommodate Air Force One near many of the stops. And it […]

Perry’s Rise Shows Small-Government Fires Still Burning

Published by under 2012 Elections

I am a bit surprised on how well Rick Perry is doing so quickly. I was concerned the libertarian, anti-big-government fires may have died down a bit since the 2010 elections. All indications are that is not the case.They are as white hot as ever (since DC has produced nothing but empty promises and massive […]

Short Sighted Fools In DC

Published by under All General Discussions

There is a rule on NASA missions that we can never design or implement a mission which relies on foreign resources to succeed or be safe. It has been a major barrier to international joint efforts forever because just about everything in a space mission is critical to its success. You can’t have a successful […]

What The NWS & NHC Got Right, And What The Drama Media & Nanny State Screwed Up

Published by under All General Discussions

Long post title, but it is really important to separate the successes surrounding hurricane Irene from the flakes. Flakes run around claiming bald face lies, like how Irene was caused by Global Warming. On the other hand, the National Weather Service (NWS) and National Hurricane Center (NHC) pretty much succeeded – though they need to […]

NY Times Publishes Global Warming Fiction – Calls It “News”

OK, this has gotten way out of control. The NY Times is running an article about Irene that is 100% rubbish and 100% Global Warming propaganda: The scale of Hurricane Irene, which could cause more extensive damage along the Eastern Seaboard than any storm in decades, is reviving an old question: are hurricanes getting worse […]

Crying “Wolf!” Over Irene

Published by under All General Discussions

Irene made fools of the media, the Pols and the nanny state. They all cried “wolf!” and no wolf showed up. Case 1: Stumbling and apparently buffeted by ferocious gusts, he took shelter next to a building. “This is our protection from the wind,” he explained. “It’s been truly remarkable to watch the power of […]

Fox News Has Crossed The Line On Questioning The NWS This Morning

Published by under All General Discussions

Major Update: WUWT has a hit list of ‘staged’ dram from yesterday by the news media. Truly pathetic. And WUWT also tackles the silliness if blaming the NWS, – end update Fox News has just produced one of the dumbest articles on the size of government I have ever seen. They question whether the nation […]

Pathetic Fear Mongering Over Irene

Why anyone listens to the morons on the green left any more is the only mystery left surrounding the now disproved theory of CO2 induced global warming.They are running around like Chicken Little screaming ‘the sky is falling, the sky is falling’ at each normal weather event now. In a truly cosmic case of irony, […]

Stick A Fork In Gore’s AGW – It’s Done

Imagine – that nuclear fire ball at the heart of our solar system, which happens to be 1,333,000 times larger than the Earth (in volume), actually has more effect on our climate than a marginal gas making up less than 3% of our atmosphere. I mean, even the oceans – which cover 75% of the […]
