A Little of This, a Little of That

So I found a few amusing things today that may, for a while, take your mind off the horrors of the third Obama administration.

Somebody dug up an interesting video of Leonard Nimoy warning in the ’70s about the looming ice age. We were all going to freeze to death because a global freeze was imminent. Noted climate scientists said so!

Of course, that was before we were all going to burn to death due to global warming.  The video can be found here.

A Carbon-Free Atmosphere?

Joe Biden recently convened a global summit on the “existential threat” of climate change. Despite that the ecosystem–plants, animals, and humans–have been adapting to the ever-changing climate since life began on this planet, nevertheless global leaders, who believe they know best, convened to try to stop climate change.

Collectivist Nationalism


Quite the kerfuffle surrounding Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” proposal. This link shows her pie-in-the-sky plan, as published by the representative herself, on her very own government website. The link came from an Internet archive because the plan was pulled from the government website not long after it was published. The very same plan, in FAQ form, was transmitted directly to media outlets, including NPR, by the representative’s staff.

Super Bowl Sunday 2019

Oh, yay! Super Bowl Sunday. Is anyone going to watch the game? Does anyone care? The “illustrious” former-St.-Louis-now-L.A. Rams compete against the New England Patriots. Such suspense!

Green Scooters and Bikes?

Cities across the country (indeed, across the globe) have introduced dockless electric scooters and bikes in an effort to be environmentally greener. These alternative modes of transportation within urban areas are supposed to help “cities meet their goals of reducing carbon emissions and cutting car traffic.”

Some Real News to Counter Fake News

A few real news stories to take your mind off the fake news. These stories are not fiction; no names have been changed to protect anyone, and no editing of unseemly words was done to protect your sensibilities. Sorry.

First up, analysis of an eye-opening (and orifice opening) event at a vegan restaurant in Memphis, TN.

Recently a diner at the restaurant wrote an online review that was, shall we say, less than appetizing. According to the diner

During my visit, a bare butt naked baby was running around, stood up on a table with its black, they’re-so-dirty feet, and bent over to show me its butthole. I wish I was exaggerating. This is like, while I’m eating, and it’s the owner’s kids.

Obama Says “Climate Change” Will Destroy (Not Create) National Parks

yosemitefalls - CopyIn order to justify taking his entire family on a vacation out west on the taxpayers’ dime, Barack Obama recently made a speech about “climate change” while at Yosemite National Park.

Religious and Political Syncretism

OH, LORD, PLEASE DON’T LET ME BE MISUNDERSTOOD.

Who can blame Evo Morales, the commie leader of Bolivia, for mistakenly believing that the Pope would relish a crucifix in the shape of a communist hammer and sickle? Perhaps a dried llama fetus would have been better appreciated, so that the Pope could have made a Bolivian-style sacrifice to “Mother Earth” (aka Pachamama).

Update: Francis likes it, despite his apparent puzzlement.

Environmental Migrants and Fundamental Transformation

Nowadays, everything is political and everything is tainted with politics. Nothing much that happens these days is an accident or a coincidence.

A previous post explained how many fields of scientific study are being systematically corrupted by political correctness, which infects anthropology, paleontology, psychology, sociology, archaeology, history, meteorology and of course political science, among others. The issue of man-caused climate change is among the most obvious of examples where political correctness rears its ugly head. Why is this important to recognize?

Let’s speculate a little about how politically corrupted science can further efforts to “fundamentally transform” our free Republic.

Out of Africa? Political Correctness and Science

African_sunset - Copy

Regular readers may know that I’m wont to joke that we are all African-Americans, and so should be eligible for minority set-asides, scholarships and/or reparations (should they ever be awarded). My joke is based upon the prevailing hypothesis about the origin of modern Homo sapiens sapiens.  Personally, I’ve never accepted the Out of Africa model (aka single replacement), but it’s been the favored scientific “wisdom” for some time. The proposals of Milford H. Wolpoff, who advances the multiregional hypothesis, have always seemed to make more sense, but even that model envisions Africa as our ultimate homeland.
