  • Global Warming? Not So Fast Say Scientists!

    The climatistas really are a fun and lovable bunch to watch. Also pathetic. They are victims of their own doomsday scenarios of inexorably rising greenhouse gas levels and the parade of horribles soon to follow. The Paris Accord, even if fully implemented, will barely slow any future warming accord to the standard climate orthodoxy (better known as “The Consensus”). That’s why the former NASA chief climatista James Hansen called the Paris Accord “a fraud.” What do you do when, having told us for more than 20 years that “we only have ten years left” to act, the deadline passes and...
  • Former Education Secretaries DREAM On

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | September 18, 2017 | Malcolm A. Kline
    A quintet of former U. S. Secretaries of Education is weighing in on behalf of the so-called DREAM Act designed to benefit the children of illegal aliens. "We write out of deep concern for approximately two million Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children," they indeed did write in a letter to congressional leaders of both parties. "Over the past five years, hundreds of thousands of these young people came forward in good faith to participate in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program." "They registered with the government, passed extensive background checks, and...
  • Is Amazon's Shipping Policy A Form Of Consumer Fraud?

    Forbes ^ | Laurence Kotlikoff | May 23, 2016
    When I encounter large companies acting in what appears to be a fraudulent matter, I presume I'm not special and that the company is harming the public in general. At that point I go slightly nuts and get far too aggressive (my wife says the right word is "rude") on the phone with customer support people who are not fundamentally at fault. This happened yesterday with Amazon. I tried to wiggle out of my bad behavior to my wife using economics. I explained to my wife that being aggressive is a form of economic signaling to make people take your...
  • The White People Are Coming! 6 Signs Your Neighborhood Is Being Gentrified

    Centuries before anyone noticed Christopher Columbus wandering around the Bahamas searching for gold and a place to buy caramel decaf frappuccinos, wypipo had long been moving into brown neighborhoods and planting flags. It’s how apartheid started. It’s why people in Brazil speak Portuguese. It’s why the Native American genocide was rebranded as “manifest destiny.” Now that microcolonialism has been given the innocuous euphemism “gentrification,” it is no longer seen as threatening. As whiteness becomes America’s most lucrative industry, gentrification is now an unavoidable inevitability. While it may not be preventable, we thought you’d like to know a few ways in...
  • Musicians are the least well-funded body in the music industry?

    It's funny how most people come to the conclusion musicians are the least funded in the music industry or the general consensus is focused on music artists receiving support. This is so far from the truth as people sometimes forget about the music writers and bloggers. It's like they do not even exist. Though in actual fact they pour a tremendous amount of creativity into their art, just like the musicians and even more so at times.
  • EXCLUSIVE: ESPN tried to kick Jemele Hill off the air and replace her with another black host

    09/14/2017 7:27:01 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 35 replies
    ESPN originally tried to keep Hill off the air on Wednesday evening, but Smith refused to do the show without her, the sources said. Both sources also said that producers reached out to two other black ESPN hosts, Michael Eaves and Elle Duncan, to ask them to serve as fill-ins for the show — but Eaves and Duncan did not agree to take the place of Hill and Smith, either.
  • A Chappaquiddick Reckoning At Last?

    09/11/2017 7:21:33 PM PDT · by Hojczyk · 98 replies
    Variety chief film critic Owen Gleiberman, piles on: “Chappaquiddick” is a meticulously told chronicle, no more and no less, and at times there’s a slight detachment in watching it, because it’s too tough and smart to milk the situation by turning Edward Kennedy into a “tragic figure.” . . . Forty-eight years later, let’s be clear on what the meaning of Chappaquiddick is. Ted Kennedy should, by all rights, have stood trial for involuntary manslaughter, which would likely have ended his political career. The fact that the Kennedy family — the original postwar dynasty of the one percent — possessed,...

    President Trump won the election fair and square, but more and more evidence keeps piling up that his big win might have been in spite of Democratic voter fraud. First there was the study suggesting millions of non-citizens voted, now there appears to be evidence that thousands of non-residents may have actually given a whole state to Hillary Clinton. New Hampshire House Speaker Shawn Jasper (R) reported numbers on Thursday that indicate more than 6,500 people registered to vote in New Hampshire using out-of-state drivers licenses, Washington Times reports. Since the election, many of those people, most of whom were...

    Outkick The Coverage ^ | 09/07/2017 | Clay Travis
    Yesterday morning the sports media united in praise and sympathy for Seattle Seahawk defensive end Michael Bennett when he tweeted out a story which claimed police had singled him out, pointed their guns at him, threatened to blow his brains out, and detained him in the back of a police car for “doing nothing more than simply being a black man in the wrong place at the wrong time.” That message he posted on Twitter has since been favorited or retweeted 582,000 times. When I read Bennett’s story yesterday morning, the facts didn’t make sense to me. Bennett alleged that...

    The Hill ^ | 09/06/2017 | BY JULIA MANCHESTER
    Comedian Steve Harvey said he ultimately regrets his decision to meet with President Trump, saying he should have listened to his wife's advice not to attend the meeting. "Here's the crazy thing: I'm supposed to be on a boat for my 60th birthday, so my wife says, 'Steve, just take off [and skip the meeting]. You'll meet with him some other time.' God, I should've listened," Harvey told The Hollywood Reporter. Harvey, who interviewed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the campaign, met with Trump in January at Trump Tower before his inauguration. Former President Barack Obama's transition team facilitated...

    American Thinker ^ | 9/3/17 | Thomas Lifson
    When the Left's absurd caricature of President Donald Trump keeps getting proven a lie, people start to change their minds. There are some signs that as Labor Day signals a new season, buckling down for autumn and winter to come, a re-appraisal may be underway for a segment of public opinion on President Trump. First of all, even MSNBC is noticing how good he looks handling Hurricane Harvey. Covering his visit live, she gushed, “We’re seeing a remarkably different president.” While cynics translate this as, “We can’t maintain the narrative of a bumbling idiot anymore,” I think there is genuine...
  • Trump Trolls Hillary Clinton’s Book Launch=> Liberals Wet Themselves

    Hillary Clinton is launching a book tour with her memoir of her experience as the Democratic Party’s nominee for president. Hillary got shellacked by 77 electoral votes – 304 to 227.. VIP tickets for the upcoming book tour will cost you $2,375. She is a Clinton, after all. On Sunday President Trump trolled the left by retweeting this response to Hillary’s book.

    Today the White House announced that President and Mrs. Trump are donating $1 million to Harvey relief. But there is no satisfying the White House press corps. The Associated Press can’t report on the president’s contribution without taking a dig at him: The White House says President Donald Trump is pledging $1 million in personal funds to Harvey storm relief efforts. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made the announcement at a briefing Thursday. And she says he’s calling on reporters to help decide which specific organization he will give to. So far, so good. But now the AP...

    Glenn Beck‘s TheBlaze is saying farewell to 20 percent of its employees. And Beck may cry. “What happened?” he asked in a highly emotional piece that he posted to his website and to Medium that makes it sound like someone is literally ripping out his spleen. “My heart is heavy today.” “Today, we said goodbye to just over 20 percent of the combined workforce of Mercury Radio Arts and TheBlaze (with most of the changes happening at TheBlaze),” he wrote. “We are losing a lot of talented and committed colleagues, who are some of the best human beings I know — some...

    And here I bet you thought that the Hillary Clinton email scandal was over, didn’t you? No such luck. The Daily Caller has a report on a puzzling development this month in the ongoing investigation. New York Attorney Ty Clevenger filed a Freedom of Information Act request in March of last year for a number of the Clinton emails which were under scrutiny. Now, seventeen months later, he’s finally gotten his answer. Nope. The FBI is refusing to turn them over. The reason? Because the petitioner failed to demonstrate a sufficient public interest in making the documents public. I’ll give...

  • Yikes: Kelli Ward 47, Jeff Flake 21 in Arizona primary poll (Way outside margin of error)

    Hotair ^ | 08/29/2017 | AllahPundit
    Right, right, “it’s just one poll.” But it isn’t. A few weeks ago, PPP had Flake’s approval rating in Arizona a breezy 18/63 overall, including 22/57 among Republicans. JMC Analytics, the firm responsible for this new survey, has him at 22/67 among Republicans. So intense is anti-Flake sentiment among Arizona GOPers in the wake of his feud with Trump that Kelli Ward, a comparatively weak candidate, has more than doubled him up here.It’d be unusual for a youngish incumbent not to run for reelection in the belief that he can’t possibly win. U.S. senators are, by definition, good at...
