Did this disciple just let the cat out of the bag?

Richard Lindzen, an MIT professor, and an AGW advocate, seems to have really let the cat out of the bag recently, according to this See-BS, news article, where he points out:

MIT Professor Richard Lindzen is a leading international expert on climate change. “The changes that have occurred due to global warning are too small to account for,” he told WBZ-TV. “It has nothing to do with global warming, it has to do with where we live.”

Lindzen endorses sensible preparedness and environmental protection, but sees what he terms “catastrophism” in the climate change horror stories.

“Global warming, climate change, all these things are just a dream come true for politicians. The opportunities for taxation, for policies, for control, for crony capitalism are just immense, you can see their eyes bulge,” he says.

I bolded the important sections. Nobody here should doubt that I disagree with the professor on AGW, or whatever they call it these days. There is no such thing as an optimum or steady state temperature, a base requirement for you to make the argument that these changes are bad. The immutable fact I agree with the Climate cult on is that in nature things change, and they have been changing since this giant ball we live on got formed out of dust in space over 4 billion years ago. Climate or temperature is no exception. The planet went from being molten rock to having a solid surface. Oceans formed, weather came about, and it has drifted between heat that had palm tree like plants growing at the poles to temperatures so cold that we had mile high ice caps on the very same poles.

All this happened long before man. Between the sun, other radiation from space, the complex relationship between the oceans, the atmosphere, earth’s various energy retention systems, and the many mechanisms that move these energies around the globe – systems and mechanisms we barely understand as all the faulty modeling (I am being generous here because we all know that there was more manipulation to reach a desire result than faulty anything) by the cultists and their failed predictions proves – temperatures and climate managed to fluctuate so drastically that we would barely be able to recognize the planet from one age to the other.

And yet, for the last 30 or so years, after a couple of decades before that of the same types talking about another ice age, we have been told that the planet was going to turn into a waterworld, not because of nature, but because of man. So, queue in the big government types, and suddenly mother nature doesn’t matter. Lindzen finally admits that the real problem is the incestuous relationship between the grant seekers doing this research and the big government (the nanny state collectivists) types that see this as a means to frighten uninformed or misinformed people into giving up more of their freedoms, rights, and wealth.

Maybe we are finally getting somewhere, and we can finally get some real research, not intended to help collectivists scare the sheep into letting them set up their tyrannical and all controlling governments, but stuff that can help us separate the facts from the fiction. Of course, I suspect that grant money will dry up quickly once the nanny staters stop seeing the stuff they want. At least we can now, without a shadow of a doubt, point out the ludicrous position taken by the cutists that only anti-AGW is bad because that was financed by fossil fuel types. Nobody can outfund the nannys state collectivist Leviathan….. Heh!


Stupid hypocritical apologist makes a fool of the left.

The Team Blue members are all up in arms that some libertarian dude had the temerity to expose the level of government spying going on by the most ethical administration ever to grace this great nation. Desperate to justify what amounts pretty much to an enormous breach of the 4th amendment and a totalitarian act that would make the tyrants in Orwell’s 1984 proud, they have all but admitted that the only time they would have problems with any program that violated our rights is when it is done by the other party. Shit, we even have donkey polls like Hoyer pretending that the abuse under Obama is not such a bad thing. Hey dickwad, at least Boosh’s morons only looked at conversations outside the US between suspected terrorists and terror enablers, and they didn’t blanket all 300 million Americans as the NSA is doing now under Obama.

I get it that idiots like you would like us all to think that since Obama is now in charge – did you know the dude has a peace prize, has stopped the rising of the oceans, and has all but done away with the GWoT too – that systemic and systematic collection of information on all citizens is not a big deal, especially since he isn’t evil BushChimpyMcHitler ™. But who are you fucking assholes trying to kid? All we have to do is ask you to tell us how you would feel if Boosh was doing this exact same thing. Your side, rightly so, almost had a heart attack and demanded all sorts of checks & balances when Boosh’s people were looking just at terrorists, but now you feel collecting information on all citizens is no big deal, and in fact, a great weapon against the very GWoT your side wants to pretend is already done and over? Did your head just exploded there? Logic, facts, and morals are not things that exist or bug the ideological and political left much. And we have yet another example of that here.

You can not make the shit going on up anymore. Oh how far has this once great nation fallen. Nixon got jibbed considering the real abuses that these bastards are getting away with.

Irony, thine name is nanny state

The WSJ has an article about how the NSA is monitoring communications and transactions of all kinds, by regular citizens, under the pretense that this massively unconstitutional action is being done, under the guise of providing for national security, to supposedly protect us from terrorism. Considering the only actions we know that any and all other federal agencies have taken based on information they gather have been of the partisan attack type, you will pardon me for not taking the statist fucks that want us to believe that the intel the NSA is gathering isn’t being abused. When congress feels it must ask Holder if this administration is spying on them, you know that what’s going on is bad. Anyway, back to the WSJ article, and a revelation that this intel gathering isn’t limited to phone calls, e-mails, social media, and blogs, but that it also includes…

WASHINGTON—The National Security Agency’s monitoring of Americans includes customer records from the three major phone networks as well as emails and Web searches, and the agency also has cataloged credit-card transactions, said people familiar with the agency’s activities.

The disclosure this week of an order by a secret U.S. court for Verizon Communications Inc.’s VZ +3.34% phone records set off the latest public discussion of the program. But people familiar with the NSA’s operations said the initiative also encompasses phone-call data from AT&T Inc. T +1.54% and Sprint Nextel Corp., S +1.91% records from Internet-service providers and purchase information from credit-card providers.

Credit cards? So they are tracking what people buy with their cards as well, huh? Yeah, I can go into a rant about how fucking insane this abuse of power is, but the first thing that popped into my mind is that if they can track everyone’s credit card transactions, they should put some effort into checking out past Obama campaign crdit card misuses. Of course I am just kidding! Don’t drone strike me, bro. No f-ing way these scumbags would find anything wrong with what they are doing anyway. After all, things are only “really wrong, bordering on evil” when it is the conservatives, religious people, and of course, the Tea Partiers that can be accused – practically always falsely, and without the usual bullshit restraint the left and the LSM pretend they feel obliged to practice until, as they constantly tell is when the perp is a leftard, the real facts are known – of doing it.

I ask again: what do you think the reaction from the left and the LSM would be if the flood of ever more scary and intrusive revelations of governmental abuse of power and shitting all over the constitution and our rights was happening under a republican administration? Do you really think that we would be seeing people in the media or in authority making excuses and trying to minimize the importance of addressing these criminal activities by the monsters that promised us the most transparent and ethical administration ever? Do you think that if things were reversed that republicans would be doing what the left is doing now – circling the wagons – or would they do the same that was done when Nixon was forced to resign for something that clearly seems to be a much smaller and less despicable abuse of power? Do you think a republican administration would be given the same latitude and leniency they are giving the members of the Chicago thug machine running the country into the ground?

The left may want to pretend otherwise, but the Obama presidency has made it abundantly clear to anyone that isn’t a fucking idiot that they, their ideology, and their disregard for the very laws they use to target those they see as political enemies, are despicable. Oh, I am under no illusion that the 47%, to use a classification Romney was pilloried for, will not care a bit as long as these fucks abusing the massive power of the Leviathan state keep the “free shit” coming and do not bother them too much. Shame, decency, and morals are dead on the left, so these crooks will not be bothered. The great American experiment is being murdered, and remember that they promised us they were going to change it up, and the left can’t be bothered by that. The nanny state is evil.

Go to sleep you sheep, we are from the government and here to help!

Those are the scariest words for me to possibly hear. Of course, some people actually think the problem is with people like me that understand history, the nature of power, and the fact that the leftist ideology can’t help but end in tyranny, for the good of the majority they will tell you, and not with those that abuse power. Contrast president Obama’s speech about how people that believe we should be vigilant to prevent a tyrannical government from screwing us over, and the words he says:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Unfortunately, you’ve grown up hearing voices that incessantly warn of government as nothing more than some separate, sinister entity that’s at the root of all our problems. Some of these same voices also do their best to gum up the works. They’ll warn that tyranny always lurking just around the corner. You should reject these voices. Because what they suggest is that our brave, and creative, and unique experiment in self-rule is somehow just a sham with which we can’t be trusted.

We have never been a people who place all our faith in government to solve our problems. We shouldn’t want to. But we don’t think the government is the source of all our problems, either. Because we understand that this democracy is ours. And as citizens, we understand that it’s not about what America can do for us, it’s about what can be done by us, together, through the hard and frustrating but absolutely necessary work of self-government. And class of 2013, you have to be involved in that process.

With the revelation, just as one of the many examples, of the abuses of power by the very government Obama tells us means no ill when it clearly violates our rights and the constitution:

On Wednesday night, Burnett interviewed Tim Clemente, a former FBI counterterrorism agent, about whether the FBI would be able to discover the contents of past telephone conversations between the two. He quite clearly insisted that they could:

BURNETT: Tim, is there any way, obviously, there is a voice mail they can try to get the phone companies to give that up at this point. It’s not a voice mail. It’s just a conversation. There’s no way they actually can find out what happened, right, unless she tells them?

CLEMENTE: “No, there is a way. We certainly have ways in national security investigations to find out exactly what was said in that conversation. It’s not necessarily something that the FBI is going to want to present in court, but it may help lead the investigation and/or lead to questioning of her. We certainly can find that out.

BURNETT: “So they can actually get that? People are saying, look, that is incredible.

CLEMENTE: “No, welcome to America. All of that stuff is being captured as we speak whether we know it or like it or not.”

“All of that stuff” – meaning every telephone conversation Americans have with one another on US soil, with or without a search warrant – “is being captured as we speak”.

On Thursday night, Clemente again appeared on CNN, this time with host Carol Costello, and she asked him about those remarks. He reiterated what he said the night before but added expressly that “all digital communications in the past” are recorded and stored:

Then ask me why we should take anyone that believes they are the not just the ultimate authority over life & death, but is a fucking true believer in the radically evil leftists shit Obama believes, at their word that our ever more tyrannical government is benevolent? Before you leftists start spouting your shit, ask yourself what your reaction would be if it was evil BooshChimpyMcHitler saying something as idiotic as Obama did. Fear anyone that tells you there is nothing wrong with their abuse of power and pay even closer attention, or be prepared to reap the pain. BTW, I would be just as pissed, if not more, if I got this shit from the other side too. Any politician that tells you to be complacentbecause government means well so they simply can not do wrong, and that is precisely what Obama’s message is, should be feared.

Fifth column jokes somehow fall short after this..

No excuses for shit like this. You can’t make this stuff up. Orwellian is an understatement. My leftist friends have all been telling me this is all much ado about nothing, and that anyone that feels this sort of stuff is a sign of something real bad is just plain crazy. Let’s set the stage:

ABC is defending its decision to edit out an apparently erroneous claim by Michelle Obama in its broadcast of the first lady’s interview on Good Morning America today, saying it made the changes “solely” for the sake of time.

As The Washington Examiner reported this morning, the first lady claimed during an interview with Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts that 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton, who was killed in Chicago shortly after performing during the President’s Inauguration, was shot because “some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need.”

In fact, Chicago Police reported Pendleton was shot by a man who “opened fire with a handgun before fleeing in a waiting car,” according to the Associated Press.

Get the frack out of here! First another nanny stater gun-grabber tells another huge lie to serve the disarmament of the people narrative, then the LSM compounds it by hiding the lie to protect the nanny stater and the narrative, but this is all much ado about nothing? We aren’t talking about government telling a lie in a campaign to take away 32 ounce big gulps or ban food cooked by vendors in trucks, and the media then helping hide that lie for them, here. These fuckers are lying for a cause that basically undermines the one right in our Constitution that enables “We the People” to defend the other ones from what this government clearly wants to be: tyrannical. And the media is willingly enabling their cause and lies.

And the insane shit keeps going on while the powers that be pretend nothing bad is happening. There is a reason that the last century of collectivist history is mired in deep blood, death, and misery on a scale not seen by mankind ever before. Over 100 million have been murdered by these people. Billions have been held prisoner and subjected to misery, in their own countries, for their master’s sake. And it was all done under the guise of some benevolent well-meaning leaders crusading to bring justice and equality to the downtrodden masses. Power to the people! Except the power only goes to some elite scumbag (s) that then use it to kill, torture, oppress, abuse, and exploit those that stand in their way as well as those that can’t line up fast enough to suck their cocks or kiss their asses in the hopes of getting some scraps thrown their way.

There is a reason we should all piss our pants with fear whenever we hear the words “We are from the government and we are here to help you”, and examples like this story, where our government lies to push an agenda that would leave the citizenry weakened and less able to protect itself from said government’s tyranny, only to then have the lie covered up and compounded by a complicit media, validate that fear we should all have. All you have to do is replace the liar with a conservative – take any Boosh if you really want to stress the point – and the lie doesn’t have to even be in a cause as vile as depriving the citizens of the right to defense, then have someone on fox News do a whitewash for the liar. How do you think the left would take that?

If it was not for a double standard…
