Blathering Eco-Intellectuals

  I confess I have always been wary of intellectuals. They love arcane theories that often have little to do with real life and this is particularly true of eco-intellectuals who have embraced a panoply of lies and claims about the “environment”, “fossil fuels”, “sustainability”, and other notions that permit them to bloviate without once […]

Prepare for a Deluge of Climate Change Hype

Prepare for a Deluge of Climate Change Hype

Despite the several thousands who will participate in a Climate March and the world leaders who will do so in a UN Climate Summit this week, is there anyone who seriously believes that humans have any impact or control over the climate?

Go Away. Hillary

 Other than earning her law degree, name one thing that Hillary Clinton has accomplished on her own. Her accomplishments—slim as they are—have been achieved on the coattails of either Bill Clinton or Barack Obama. Had she not been the First Lady, would anyone have ever heard of her in the context of high power political […]

Our Pathetic President

The first thing you need to keep in mind is that Syria and Iraq are now just lines on a map at this point. They don’t exist as national states because the former is locked in a civil war that will replace its dictator one way or the other and the latter’s alleged government is […]

Liberated Women and the Traditional Family

A significant result of the women’s liberation movement is a change in the role of traditional marriage that was reported in early September. “If you count a generation as […]

The War Neither Obama, Nor Any Other Nation Wants to Fight

  Two trends have emerged since President Obama’s September 10 speech regarding his intention to “degrade and destroy” the Islamic State. One is the understanding that he will not commit U.S. troops as “boots on the ground” to fight a force estimated variously between 10,000 and 30,000 depending on intelligence guesswork. The other trend is […]

Islam is the Face of Evil

  “ISIS is not Islamic”, said  Barack Obama as he gave yet another vapid speech to say what he will or will not do next about the threat of Islam. What he said is both idiotic and a lie. ISIS calls itself the Islamic State. Obama used the word “war” only once, but ISIS is […]

An Economist’s Bad Climate Advice

If I need my car repaired, I do not take it to a dentist. If I am seeking advice about the climate I check out what climatologists and meteorologists are saying, at least those who have not sold their souls to the global warming/climate change hoax. On September 3 The Wall Street Journal published a […]
