Still more politicized pseudo-science?

The neonics and honeybees saga takes interesting, potentially fraudulent turn. Widening efforts to blame neonicotinoid pesticides for honeybee “colony collapse disorder” and other “beepocalypse” problems have taken a fascinating turn.

Divided We Stand: A Traditional Manifesto

By Selwyn Duke Conservatives are generally very nice people — who never saw a culture war they couldn’t lose.

The World’s Climate Change Mafia Meet in Peru

  To understand all the talk of “climate change” you must understand that everything and everyone involved—except for those of us who debunk the lies—are engaged in a criminal enterprise to transfer billions from industrialized nations to those who have failed to provide a thriving economy, often because they are run by dictators or corrupt […]

  Focusing on carbon dioxide (because that’s where the money is) threatens forecasts, and lives Paul Driessen and David R. Legates President Obama’s agreement with China is about as credible as his “affordable care” pronouncements.
