My Endorsement This Year: Rick Santorum 2012If you watch politics long enough, you’ll see a moment where the tragedy of a losing campaign gets so bad that you actually stop and laugh. It was the “Taliban Dan” ad back in 2010 that convinced me that Alan Grayson was off to his next stop on his professional career. Examples of this have abounded | Read More »
QotD, Senator Ma’am edition.
Dinging Senator Barbara Boxer for saying something stupid is cruel. And vicious. And viciously cruel; and it’s all because it’s far too easy to do. I am being lazy by highlighting her flustered response to Senators Barasso’s and Inhofe’s cheerful Hey, you guys have been claiming eco-Apocalypses for forty years now; only back then it was global cooling that was going to kill us all. | Read More »
The National Center For Advancing Translational Sciences.
Major thank-you’s and a huge tip of the hat to Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit for the story. This will not be a lengthy diary, as I don’t trust myself to remain civil or tone down at all. The National Center For Advancing Translational Sciences. Know what that is ? It’s a new US Government agency. Actually, it’s a new US Government corporation inside an | Read More »
The Arctic – Latest Playground For The Current Administration.
It began for me with a simple and seemingly innocuous short Presidential Memorandum dated 22 July 2010. www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/presidential-memorandum-arctic-research-and-policy-act The White House Office of the Press Secretary For Immediate Release July 22, 2010 Presidential Memorandum–Arctic Research and Policy Act MEMORANDUM FOR THE DIRECTOR OF THE OFFICE OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY POLICY SUBJECT: Designation of the National Science and Technology Council to Coordinate Certain Activities Under the | Read More »
Obama and His Administration Lament America’s Superpower Status
Yesterday at his nuclear conference, Obama said the following (via Gateway Pundit): “Whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower.” Whether we like it or not. That’s like what Mommies say when telling you to eat your yucky vegetables. Would he prefer that we be vulnerable and weak? Heck of an American Can-Do attitude, Barry! It is, of course, being spun | Read More »
Stupak Amendment Exposes Obamacare’s Dirty Little Secret: Eugenics
The other day, when Bart Stupak revealed that he was told “If you pass the Stupak Amendment, more children will be born and therefore it will cost us millions more”, I mentioned that it was no real surprise. Abortion is an agenda to the Left, it’s not about life or some perceived ‘choice’. I said that it just exposes the face underneath the mask a | Read More »
Neoliberal Climate Intervention Could Cause Health Problems, Inflammation
In July, Energy Secretary Stephen Chu promoted the idea of whitewashing roofs and roads to reflect heat and slow global warming. America should attack global warming by … painting rooftops and road surfaces white. Seriously. No kidding. Among those promoting the idea is Energy Secretary Steven Chu, a big-thinking physicist who has a bully pulpit and influence over billions in research and stimulus funds. At | Read More »
John Holdren. Science Czar. Exceptionalism Denialist.
You might remember John Holdren from a previous post – one where it was noticed that the man was on the record as considering the government to have the right to force a woman to not have a baby. As I recall, it was loudly and repetitively declared at the time that thirty years was plenty of time for Holdren to modify his extremist, anti-choice | Read More »
Barack Obama’s Dr. Death Cuts And Runs When Confronted About His Nazi-Like Death Panels, And Other Bedtime Stories About Czars!
In the above video, panelists warn of the revival of eugenics under Barack Obama’s government health care takeover, through the denial of care to millions who would be judged not fit to live, just as in Nazi Germany. Historian Anton Chaitkin does a wonderful job of exposing Dr. Death, who then realizes he has other business to attend to, and bails out before he really | Read More »
Science Czar John Holdren denies the ‘right of women to choose?’
(Via AoSHQ) This was written by John Holdren, Obama Science Czar, in 1977: Individual rights. Individual rights must be balanced against the power of the government to control human reproduction. Some people—respected legislators, judges, and lawyers included—have viewed the right to have children as a fundamental and inalienable right. Yet neither the Declaration of Independence nor the Constitution mentions a right to reproduce. Nor does | Read More »
Science Advisor John Holdren admits Administration has no clue on Global Warming
In an interview on April 8, 2009, John Holdren, Dear Leader’s Science Advisor states: “We don’t understand the system well enough to predict it’s responses in detail.” Now, I am somewhat confused. I have been brainwashed and brow beaten by Al Gore and his ‘consensus’ of experts to believe that they have this Global Climate System all down to a predictable science. They know EXACTLY | Read More »
This is what it looks like; now you know why “reality-based” is in sarcasm quotes here. It’s shocking that more has not been made of John Holdren’s shoddy scholarship and detachment from actual reality. I’d like to think that at some point in time, someone will bother to ask him how he can possibly expect to be a credible Science Adviser to the President when | Read More »
“Reality-Based” Obamaian Science Advice
Yeah, right. Isn’t a fuss supposed to be made when the incoming White House Science Adviser has a history of getting so much so embarrassingly wrong? Any chance that an enterprising journalist might ask John Holdren just what in his background and track record of predictions, arguments and hypotheses should justify the nation’s trust in him as Barack Obama’s Science Guy? I mean, we know | Read More »
