Al Gore Doubles Down

Drudge is trumpeting Gore’s re-emergence from his Tennessee burrow, where he saw his shadow and predicted six more years of Global Alarmism.

You must give this guy credit for not just shrinking into the metaphorical snowbank and hiding in the middle of our coldest wettest winter in decades. Nope, he’s either a true believer or is too invested to simply disappear. But it does take some amazing cajones and the shamelessness that can only come with a life in “public service” to pull it off.

By choosing the NYT, Gore gets to preach to the converted. He trots out the same fear-mongering but this time has to play some defense in light of the scams perpetuated by East Anglia and the IPCC.

Let the fisking begin!

It would be an enormous relief if the recent attacks on the science of global warming actually indicated that we do not face an unimaginable calamity requiring large-scale, preventive measures to protect human civilization as we know it.

So speaketh the prophet for whom every prophecy has been met by divine mockery.

Moving on to glossing over intentional misdirection and vicious partisanship:

It is true that the climate panel published a flawed overestimate of the melting rate of debris-covered glaciers in the Himalayas, and used information about the Netherlands provided to it by the government, which was later found to be partly inaccurate. In addition, e-mail messages stolen from the University of East Anglia in Britain showed that scientists besieged by an onslaught of hostile, make-work demands from climate skeptics may not have adequately followed the requirements of the British freedom of information law.

But the scientific enterprise will never be completely free of mistakes. What is important is that the overwhelming consensus on global warming remains unchanged. It is also worth noting that the panel’s scientists — acting in good faith on the best information then available to them — probably underestimated the range of sea-level rise in this century, the speed with which the Arctic ice cap is disappearing and the speed with which some of the large glacial flows in Antarctica and Greenland are melting and racing to the sea.


An embarrassed IPCC head Rajendra Pachauri reveals the source of the IPCC study, “Global Warming will destroy cash crops”

Wow, I wish I could knock over a liquor store and call it an error made in good faith. In fact as a good liberal I could actually make that case. Right wingers besieged me and I had no choice but to knock off that EZ Liquors on 12th Ave!

OK, let’s address the current miserable Winter we had and why more snow and cold is evidence of more Global f*cking Warming!

The heavy snowfalls this month have been used as fodder for ridicule by those who argue that global warming is a myth, yet scientists have long pointed out that warmer global temperatures have been increasing the rate of evaporation from the oceans, putting significantly more moisture into the atmosphere — thus causing heavier downfalls of both rain and snow in particular regions, including the Northeastern United States.

Oh, I must have missed the argument that global warming puts more moisture in the environment. It could be true. Surely Mr. Gore believes that.

Droughts are getting longer and deeper in many mid-continent regions, even as the severity of flooding increases.

Oh, nevermind.

Please note the generalizations. Droughts are getting deeper, flooding is increasing. Citations, please.

It’s like the arguments that I heard back in the 80s that the gap between the rich and poor was getting greater. I was sure that by 2010 there would only be a peasant underclass and guys that look like the top-hat guy from Monopoly ruling the United Corporate States of America. Actually, I was convinced that we’d all be dead by 1997 from Nuclear Winter, so I lied there.

Now since his arguments really can’t stand on their own, let’s turn to an “us vs. them” argument to galvanize the faithful.

Let’s meet the deniers and agents of the status quo.

They are ferociously fighting against the mildest regulation — just as tobacco companies blocked constraints on the marketing of cigarettes for four decades after science confirmed the link of cigarettes to diseases of the lung and the heart.

Simultaneously, changes in America’s political system — including the replacement of newspapers and magazines by television as the dominant medium of communication — conferred powerful advantages on wealthy advocates of unrestrained markets and weakened advocates of legal and regulatory reforms. Some news media organizations now present showmen masquerading as political thinkers who package hatred and divisiveness as entertainment.

TV is a tool of big anti-progressive corporate demons. Such powerful truth! Jeffrey Immelt just wet his pants and made a phone call to GE to invest “like a sonofabitch” in green stimulus-financed windmill farms and Organizing for America.

What’s that? He’s railing against Fox? Of course. They are the ones that killed our “We Are The World” party our elites had in Copenhagen.

So, what about the culpability of the developing economies? Short answer (liberal version) It’s our fault! Where would we be without this trope?

China, now the world’s largest and fastest-growing source of global-warming pollution, had privately signaled early last year that if the United States passed meaningful legislation, it would join in serious efforts to produce an effective treaty. When the Senate failed to follow the lead of the House of Representatives, forcing the president to go to Copenhagen without a new law in hand, the Chinese balked. With the two largest polluters refusing to act, the world community was paralyzed.

I forget, how does one say bulls***t? in Mandarin?

All in all, it is good to see Gore back in form defending his carbon-offset racket. But it it always sad when the protagonist learns no lessons and doesn’t develop as a character.

Earthquake in Chile, possible tsunamis to hit San Diego and Hawaii, Al Gore in exile, Obamacare on the horizon, US vs. Canada tomorrow in an epic Olympic Hockey brawl…so today’s post is on…


Not Barack Obama, though I do often think of BO when I think of him.

No, we’re talking body odor…and I am calling BS on this hard-hitting NBC report which lists the top 7 cities for BO (via Hot Air headlines):

* Yuma, AZ #7

* San Antonio, TX #6

* New Orleans, LA #5

* Chicago, Il #4

* Phoenix, AZ #3

* Houston, TX #2

* Las Vegas, NV #1

Uh…no. I have spent time in all of these cities (extensive time in Yuma, Phoenix, San Antonio and Houston) and I can tell you that this report misses the most obvious one…

New York.

Ever spent a July afternoon on the “R” train headed to Brooklyn? Or even a mid-February day, when people don’t bother to clean their overgarments? PEEEE….EWWWWW! A New Yawk friend of mine explained that many New Yorkers just “give up” on hygiene since they have to walk everywhere and the stank just seems to stick to them.

I spend about a month of every year in Yuma and I can tell you there might be stink from the agriculture but
I can’t ever recall that stink being on humans.

The WORST smell I have ever smelled was in New Orleans, but that had nothing to do with BO…it was a few weeks after Katrina right outside of the Superdome (they were taking the water-soaked turf out).

Another town NBC missed…Oakland. Ever been to a Raider game?

Thoughts? Any disgusting BO stories y’all might have?

Northeastern Republicans Will Never Be Anything But RINOs

I knew better. Really I did.

Nothing changes.

WASHINGTON, Feb 22 (Reuters) – A modest job-creation bill advanced in the U.S. Senate on Monday as the chamber’s newest Republican bucked his party and sided with Democrats on a $15 billion package of tax cuts and highway spending.

Republican Scott Brown joined four other Republicans, 55 Democrats and two independents to overcome a procedural hurdle that sets up a final vote later this week.

“I hope my vote today is a strong step toward restoring bipartisanship in Washington,” he said in a statement.

In the back of my mind, I wondered if Brown might be just another McShame in a more appealing package. Confirmed. Is there a money-back guarantee?

He was, however, joined by four other gutless Republicans (names we know well) – BOND, COLLINS, VOINOVICH, SNOWE.

Brown said he got the message. The message we get from Brown is that it only takes a scant few weeks for principle to be replaced by power and greenbacks. It’s even money on whether he will keep his promise to vote against Obamacare and Cap-and-Trade.

The biggest shocker here is that Alexander actually voted against the bill.

McMurphy’s Corollary To The Reid Hypothesis

Earlier today, Weenie The Punchdrunk Midget of the Mighty Searchlight Fightin’ Dwarves spake thusly on The Nature of Man:

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) suggested Monday that domestic violence by men has increased due to U.S. joblessness.

Reid, speaking in the midst of a Senate debate over whether to pass a $15 billion package meant to spur job creation, appeared to argue that joblessness would lead to more domestic violence.

“I met with some people while I was home dealing with domestic abuse. It has gotten out of hand,” Reid said on the Senate floor. “Why? Men don’t have jobs.”

He’s technically right but for the wrong reason.  And conclusion.  It makes you think that it’s the mens who are going crazy because they’re out of work, frustrated, in all likelihood bitterly clinging to their guns and religion.

But what if they’re not holding on to their First and Second Amendment rights?  What if it’s the mens getting beaten because they don’t have jobs?  Instead of clinging to the guns and the god, they’re substituting it with a tray of brownies and a six-pack of Fat Tire at 10 in the morning?

Thanks for standing up for us, little fella:

The wife of former professional wrestling champion Ric Flair was arrested overnight in an apparent domestic assault case, police say.

Jacqueline Beems, 41, was charged with misdemeanor assault, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.

Beems and Flair were married about three months ago.

If the Nature Boy’s getting pounded over the head with a folding chair in his own home, think of the whipping Mrs. Reid is going to lay on Dingy come November.  Woooo!

In Space, No One Can Hear You Ululate

NASA Ordered To Let Mohammed Atta Fly The Space Shuttle.

Yea.  Here’s another great idea from Teh Smartest President Ever:

NASA Administrator Charlie Bolden said Tuesday that President Barack Obama has asked him to “find ways to reach out to dominantly Muslim countries” as the White House pushes the space agency to become a tool of international diplomacy.

“In addition to the nations that most of you usually hear about when you think about the International Space Station, we now have expanded our efforts to reach out to non-traditional partners,” said Bolden, speaking to a lecture hall of young engineering students.

Your President is your new Travel Agent Terrorist.

“Non-traditional partners” meaning partners who contribute absolutely nothing to a mission and who do not want to come back alive.  Viewing our technological advances as potential weapons to use against us is also a plus.

When your “partner” starts yelling Allahu Akbar and storms the cockpit just know that we did everything we could to strip-search our own astronauts so that our intrepid Islamofascists would never tell the space aliens that we racially profiled them.

Is this post really hyperbole?  Nah.  Not when your Prez just named a terrorist sympathizing scumbag as your new ambassador to the Muslim world.  Once again highlighting that he’s more in tune with his Hussein than his Barack or his Obama.

Bush Torture Attorneys Found Guilty of First Degree, Pre-Meditated Innocence

You’ve got to love the Legacy Media spin though:

From the New York Slimes:

Report Faults 2 Authors of Bush Terror Memos

From the Hill, “we’ll have hearings on the hearings until I get the answer I want!” says husband of drunken bar brawling corruptocrat:

Judiciary chairmen vow hearings on torture memos report

From the Administration’s public relations farm team at the Washington Post(Op Trannies):

Authors of waterboarding memos won’t be disciplined

From Neo-nationalist People’s Radio:

Yoo And Bybee, Lawyers Behind ‘Torture Memos,’ Will Not Face Disbarment, Criminal Punishment


US: Lawyers Misconduct Shows Need for Torture Inquiry

They have a real funny way of describing how someone was found innocent.

The Enemy Within

What a traitor looks like:

Al-Qaeda is running the Department of Justice.  Foxes, henhouses and what’s for dinner:

Attorney General Eric Holder says nine Obama appointees in the Justice Department have represented or advocated for terrorist detainees before joining the Justice Department. But he does not reveal any names beyond the two officials whose work has already been publicly reported. And all the lawyers, according to Holder, are eligible to work on general detainee matters, even if there are specific parts of some cases they cannot be involved in.

So your Attorney General is taking his fellow travelers out of Al-Qaeda’s legal farm teams in the U.S. and is putting them in direct control of the Department of Justice advising on detainees that they or their firms represented.  What do I mean “formerly”?

They are still representing them.

As for everyone else, Holder lists no names and no cases, but in a paragraph filled with modifiers, he makes it clear that all the lawyers who had advocated for detainees are free to work on general detainee matters.

The senior Department officials referenced above, like other political appointees who are similarly situated, have recused from particular matters regarding specific detainees in which their former firms represent the detainee or another party and from decisions relating specifically to the dispositions of particular detainees represented by their former firms. These recusals pertain to decisions relating to particular matters involving specific parties who are or have been represented by their former law firms within the relevant time period. However, as noted above, these senior officials have been authorized to participate in policy and legal decisions regarding detainee matters, in particular matters regarding specific detainees whom their prior employer did not represent, and in decisions relating to the disposition of such detainees. [emphasis added]

Oh, well that’s clear as mud then.  I used to work for one terrorist/client and now I have to swap out with my buddy who was representing a different scumbag.  Attorney A used to work for Khalid Sheik Mohammed and Attorney B used to work for Osama Bin Laden’s driver – so it’s okay for Attorney B to represent for KSM at the Dept. of Justice and it’s okay for Attorney A to represent OBL’s driver.  And this isn’t a conflict of interest how exactly?

The DoJ should be prosecuting terrorists not representing them from the inside.  In simpler times, people called this treason.  Some of us still do.

And if you think hauling Bush attorneys in front of Congress for show trials when they did nothing wrong is high drama wait until we get a hold of you.  Holder and his entire squad of Guantanamo Bay representing goons, who he refuses to name or say what they are doing,  should be frog marched in front of a military tribunal themselves and dealt with accordingly.

Instead they prosecute the people who kept America safe for eight years and put the legal lunatics who represented the enemy in charge of their former clients.  Madness.

Gloria Allred is a whore…

…well, she’s an attention whore anyway.

Watch her defend the porn star who banged Tiger Woods (and is claiming Woods impregnated her twice without any proof at all) on the night The Hannity Show looked more like Jerry Springer:

Tiger Woods is scum for cheating on his wife and kids. Gloria Allred is a whore…for trying to profit off of it.

Genius Lessons: Trick A Species Into Endangering Itself

In response to the Georgia Right-To-Life billboard above, another overeducated fool stumbles on the Holy Grail Fail:

Abortion rights advocates are disturbed. Spelman College professor Beverly Guy-Sheftall called the strategy a gimmick.

“To use racist arguments to try to bait black people to get them to be anti-abortion is just disgusting,” said Guy-Sheftall, who teaches women’s history and feminist thought at the historically black women’s college.

“These one-issue approaches that are not about saving the black family or black children, it’s just a big distraction,” she said. “Many black people don’t know who Margaret Sanger is and could care less.”

To use anti-racist arguments to bait black people into killing themselves is what’s disgusting in an evil genius kind of way.  You don’t know who Margaret Sanger is but I assure you that she’s looking up to you and smiling at this very moment for continuing her pioneering work in  “Weed” Eradication.

Fortunately for you, your mother was not as “educated” as you are.

Think I’ll Wait For The Movie on TBS

Hold on to your Bose Wave Radio and leatherbound Paul Harvey transcripts. Fred Thompson’s planning on releasing his memoirs:

“Teaching the Pig to Dance” recounts the movie star-turned-politician’s 50s-era upbringing in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee.

The title alludes to what Thompson concedes were some of his own flaws and specifically how difficult he made it for those who were trying to help raise him.

“There is an old saying that teaching the pig to dance is a fruitless endeavor,” Thompson said in an e-mail. “It is a waste of your time and it irritates the pig. That was probably how my parents, teachers, coaches and townsfolk felt about me.”

And me with all these hoof prints on the top of my shoes.

Give it a week. He’ll abandon his writing and ask you to read McCain’s biography again.

Change You Can Bereave In

Dramatic Re-enactment

Portrait of 69,456,897 Oddballs. We’re going to need a bigger canvas:

A family source said Bishop…was a far-left political extremist who was “obsessed” with President Obama to the point of being off-putting.

This story of the Alabama professor who gunned down her colleagues just keeps getting stranger and stranger. After all, I’ve never heard of a far-left extremist in Academia with an off-putting Obama cult mentality before.

Somebody get Incompetano monitoring the Twitter feeds. We may have to shut down every single U.S. college and newsroom. When this latter-day Unabombette was questioned about mailing a pipebomb to a doctor thanklessly tasked with examining some of her research:

“She was quite cavalier about it,” Fluckiger said of Bishop’s description of her interview with police. She said Bishop “grinned” as she described being asked by cops whether she’d ever taken stamps off an envelope and fastened them onto something else. “I cannot tell you what the grin meant,” Fluckiger said.

Seven years prior, Bishop shot her brother to death in Braintree in an incident that was ruled an accident at the time.

Somehow none of this disqualified her from jumping in front of a classroom full of kids.

Oh, and she tried to hold up a car dealership.  It’s stuff like this that makes Massachusetts look like some commie cuddling, crook coddling CuckooLand.

Sometimes appearances can be deceiving.  Other times, devastatingly accurate.

Homeland Security can just wait until Bishop gets her own show on MSNBC. At least that would ensure that her infectious ideas won’t be exposed to as many people as the university.

No word yet as to whether the President will send out some free t-shirts for the victims but I expect a full rebuke of violent, leftwing looney bin radio is forthcoming.

MoveOn.Org Grad Is Your New Twitterer

By way of Newsbusters, it appears that Teh Won’s new Twitter-In-Chief is a MoveOn.orger/Emily’s Lister abortionist named Cambronero (from The Sweetness):

Note that the NOI was put together by the extremely loathsome Zach Exley. For those of you who might not recognize the name, you can check out his lengthy entry at Discover The Networks.

But suffice to say that Mr. Exley is an activist with the domestic terrorists known as the Ruckus Society. He has also worked as an undercover labor union organizer.

However, his great online achievement was his creation of a ‘phishing’ site, which pretended to be the official website for George Bush.

Be a terrorist. Get paid. Get taxpayer sponsorship.

Mr. Exley, we have the undercarriage of a bus with your name on it and all of your commie acolytes. Obamao’s ties are really starting to add up.

Funny that you want to take credit for General Betrayus now.

If The Tree of Global Warming Fell In The Living Rooms of The American Press And No One Reported It Would It Make A Sound?

An open request to the British Press. In addition to absolutely kicking the arse of your counterparts in the American unofficially state-run media on the subject of so-called “climate change” – your next story should be about how and why they have ignored this story completely.

Call them up. Interview them. Get them on the record as to how this story that you all are exploiting, like the fabled last oil reserve buried deep in a caribou’s hindquarters, is nary worth a mention by our Rip Van Winkle Press. Perpetually trapped in a mental time warp between an early club-you-over-the-head 1990’s Mtv raising awareness campaign and it’s discredited future.

They have plenty of time to procrasturbate over Sarah Palin’s hand notes, perpetuating Government Motor’s smear campaign against Toyota, or some dude setting the World’s Record for hugs yet can’t dedicate anyone to covering the Greatest Con Game In The History of Ever.

It makes The Sting look like The Flea Bite.

Cheerio. Pip-pip. And all that other hoo-ha, Old Chum. Have at it.

UPDATE: Thanks to all you Instapunditeers and Big Journalism visitors.
Doing the jobs American “journalists” don’t want to do on this issue.

One Nation, Under Surveillance

Feel safe knowing that the Department of Homeland Security has everything under control from their strategic command post monitoring the comments section at the Huffin’ Glue Post:

As the winter Olympics begin, the Department of Homeland Security has disclosed that it will be monitoring the comments and posts on websites and social media like Twitter for information on possible terror threats. Among the sites listed in a privacy impact statement filed Friday afternoon by DHS are the Drudge Report, the Huffington Post, Twitter, Google and this web site, the Blotter.

Don’t you feel safer already knowing that instead of monitoring phone calls from Yemen to Dearborn, Michigan or that sketchy guy from Pakistan sitting in 26D who keeps trying to set his Hanes on fire that your witty and insightful comment on Sarah Palin writing notes on her hand has the attention of Janet Reno’s butch cousin.

Climate Change 98 And The God That Failed

I feel better already:

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has broken from philanthropic work fighting poverty and disease to take on another threat to the world’s poor — climate change.

“Energy and climate are extremely important to these people,” Gates told Friday a TED Conference audience packed with influential figures including the founders of Google and climate champion Al Gore.

The climate getting worse means many years that crops won’t grow from too much rain or not enough, leading to starvation and certainly unrest.”

Sometimes it rains too much. Sometimes it doesn’t rain enough. That’s life. Either that or the Goldlilocks’ porridge. I seem to recall a Dust Bowl where it didn’t rain enough. Was that Global Warming caused from aerosol underarm deodorant?

I seem to recall a great flood. Was that because we weren’t cultivating enough windfarms and driving electric cars?

We live on a spinning rock with Parkinson’s disease, people. A rock with a hot molten core. A fever if you will. And the only prescription is more Windows 98.

From the man who ran Microsoft and couldn’t keep his own operating system from crashing, I am less enthused by the thought of him running Nature without prior experience.

“The formula is a very straight forward one,” Gates said. “More carbon dioxide equals temperature increase equals negative effects like collapsed ecosystems. We have to get to zero.

You first, Breathy.

On the bright side, we can call off the Amber Alert for Al Gore. 49 states are blanketed with snow and he was able to find a spot to peddle his Hot Earth theory where people wouldn’t pelt him snowballs.

I’m a Climate Denying Heretic and we’re all Environmental Sinners In the Hands of An Angry Gaia! Yet at the same time I can get Mac users to defend Gates.

I am truly all things to all people.

And If That Mama Bird Don’t Sing, Silky’s Gonna Buy You A Diamond Ring

Local homewrecker makes good.

It’s worth it just for the National Enquirer’s photoshop of what Silky Pajammies has in store:

“John knew Rielle had been waiting for a proposal for two long years. Since they’ve gotten involved, she’s followed every order he gave her, going on a cross-country cover-up, hiding away during her pregnancy and after giving birth for the sake of his presidential aspirations.

“Rielle never uttered a peep about their affair publicly, and remained loyal to John. John felt she deserved to know that he wanted to raise their child together, and wanted Rielle in his life as his partner.

“John has said that when his divorce is final, he’ll buy her a diamond ring. But in the meantime, he’s getting them a house.”

Is that house for her or him?  How romantic.  Next stop – Zales!

Let that be a lesson to all you floosies out there who never think that Mr. Wonderful is going to leave his wife after a few years.  Keep giving it all you’ve got and never say a word.

One day she’ll get cancer and keep running her mouth about what a scumbag he is and he’ll wise up and marry you.
