It was a damp, rainy Saturday in the land of Global Warming and vapid, rentier capitalism. My little boy and I went to run in his Montessori School’s Annual Spring Zing 5K fundraiser for the school. When I picked up the swag-bag that included my race shirt and number, I found a green-colored water planet that encouraged us all to save the planet in honor of Earth Day. Then I remembered something: it was the first time all week I had heard jack about the !MANDATORY! and creepily ubiquitous Earth Day.
What has happened to America’s faddishly PC !MANDATORY! celebration? Our occasion for compulsory fun has gone from being like a nationwide company picnic you pretend to enjoy if you can’t squirm away from, to being an embarrassment to those who once lauded its !MANDATORY! civic virtues. Earth Day has collapsed under the irresistible weight of its own brave sierra.*
These are not happy times for the Church of Global Warming, which has been trying to repackage its manufactured hysteria as “climate change” for several years. But according to the New York Times on Thursday, we’ve actually come full circle to where we began in the Seventies: global cooling. After some flapdoodle about global temperature spikes (in fact, not only is there no evidence connecting human activity to | Read More »
So in case you were bored enough to wonder, Van Jones has not assisted the carbon cycle yet by assuming room temperature. On 17 February, 2013, we had a confirmed sitting on the Capitol Mall. He was there to frolic in front of an adoring 35,000 person crowd at the “Forward on Climate” March. In case you wondered whether he was as think as you stoned he was, he offered us the following remarks about why he wanted Barack Obama to kill the Keystone Pipeline. So he may not be as prominent, but the man remains a deracinated menace to the future.
“I think we should take the president at his word, but make him honor his word,” Jones said. “This pipeline, if it goes through—the first thing that the pipeline runs over is the credibility of the president of the United States. That’s the first thing it runs over. He said that he’s not going to let us be a generation that cooks the earth.” Jones continued: “If we lose, we lose everything. We’re fighting for the children of all species. This isn’t just a fight about Democrats versus Republicans in the United States. The children of all species forever are going to be impacted by what we do in this town for the next twelve to twenty-four months.
Last week, America had the joy of it’s first Twitter town hall. Now don’t get me wrong. I’m a big fan of Twitter, and I even believe that doing some type of town hall variant via Twitter is a great thing. However, regardless of the venue, President Obama is a master of making incoherent, false, and/or misleading statements in 16,000 characters or less, and last | Read More »
King Louis XI was a hated man. His passing was not mourned by his subjects and his feudal vassals undoubtedly emitted a great sigh of relief upon his expiration. Louis XI schemed, tricked, back-knifed, bribed and practiced all the numerous black arts of political skullduggery. He had no great moral difficulty with killing his brothers or his dad. He did all this in service of | Read More »
President Obama is trotting out yet another policy aimed at forcing American’s to change our ways and embrace the green. Just a few weeks ago, the administration floated the idea of adding yet more taxes to our already overtaxed cars to serve the dual purpose of shoring up revenues as well as curbing driving habits (which one would assume can’t both be accomplished simultaneously, but | Read More »
It was 10 April 2007. Senator Kerry and Former Congressman Newt Gingrich appeared to debate one another on Global Warming. Newt Gingrich left John Kerry flabbergasted. He looked even more tongue-tied than he did during the 2004 Presidential Election. The Senator came to debate a Denialist and wound up having to hug the tree harder than his GOP opponent. Gingrich made the following statement during | Read More »
Liberals truly think of everything as they assail the American consumer and producer alike. They ensure that gas prices are high, thereby inflating the cost of driving to the supermarket or mall. They devalue the dollar and subsidize the agriculture sector, ensuring that food prices remain high at the supermarket. Now they are plotting to tax the bags that hold the food on the way | Read More »
This is must-see TV: The environmentalist in this video was heckling Ann McElhinney of Not Evil, Just Wrong while she was being interviewed by Ed Morrissey of Hot Air. The above confrontation took place directly after, briefly interrupting another Hot Air interview. As you can see, Kenny G. thought he was ambushing Ann. Unfortunately for him, Ann turned the tables quickly and the rest is | Read More »
Contra the Washington Post, the seven-year moratorium on new Atlantic, Pacific, and Eastern Gulf of Mexico oil drilling that will be announced today does not particularly mean that we’re going to allow new drilling in any of the other areas available to us, either*. It merely means that these were the bans that the administration had to get on with right now before an annoyed | Read More »
