Quote Of The Day

From Jeff Goldstein at Protein Wisdom (welcome back, btw):

“What started with a mentally ill nudist with a hammer has been revealed as yet another attempt by the left to censor, shame, and criminalize speech — especially speech that is critical of their elite class.”

Yeah, as MAGA Republicans such as I are well-known for our support of loony street people with homicidal tendencies, this argument by the Socialists makes perfect sense.

Although you’d have to redefine “support” as “should be used for target practice” to get a true measure of my stance, and I suspect I’m not the only one.

Noooooooo

In a shocking development:

Fox News announced Wednesday that Trace Gallagher will be the new anchor of Fox News @ Night, replacing Shannon Bream, who now hosts Fox News Sunday.

Now I have nothing against Gallagher, whom I recall as a decent enough sort, back when I used to watch cable news shows, and Fox in particular.  But let’s just consider what’s happening here:

I mean… seriously?

Shannon is one of the foxiest [sic]  anchors on TV, and to relegate her to a Sunday-only position is not A Good Thing.  (I’m thinking of the welfare of Fox News regular viewers, here.)

Lies And More Lies

You’ve all seen pictures of the falling level of water in Lake Mead, right?

And read reports of skeletal remains being found as the waters recede?

And that all this is because of climate change, via lower rainfalls, snowfalls, etc.?

Well, only the first two are factual.  The third is an outright lie.  “Climate change” has nothing to do with Lake Mead’s water level dropping, because the main suppliers of water to the lake (rain runoff and snowmelt) have not in fact decreased but remained constant.

And some smart guys have the real answer to the problem.  Read all about it here.

Unbelievable

It is not often that I watch a documentary all the way through with my mouth open in amazement, but watching Gladbeck: The Hostage Crisis  on Netflix did that to me.

I don’t know how many times I burst out with “WTF?” and “I can’t believe this!” and similar;  and you will too.

I know we’ve come a long way since the late 1980s, but this documentary needs to be shown to police forces worldwide as a “How NOT To Handle A Hostage Situation” guideline.

The Jackals Of The Press don’t come off covered with glory either — although I know that any other country’s Press, under the same circumstances, would have behaved the same or worse.  (“And now, over to our reporter on the scene, Geraldo Rivera…” OMG, the mind boggles.)

And it ends terribly.

Bullshit Spreaders

In the headline to this post, I can make a wee suggestion for change:

NPR Spreads Misinformation About Climate Change and Models (Again)

Actually, you could put it as “NPR Spreads Misinformation About _________ (Again)” or even just  “NPR Spreads Misinformation (Again)” if you want to go for brevity.

However, let me not spoil your enjoyment of the article itself, which is brimful of all sorts of anti- Green / Net Zero / glueball wormening or whatever the Watermelons are calling it nowadays.  A taste:

Since climate is an average of weather in a region over the span of 30 years, right away attempting to attribute individual storms to climate change is unscientific at best. Attribution research has been widely criticized for its inability to be repeated through testing, falsified, or measured in the real world—all necessary characteristics of science—and for the fact that predictions made by the models are based on emission scenarios that don’t match real world emission data, and are, in some instances, impossible.

All that, and so much more.  Read it, and chuckle.
