Man-Caused Global Warming Alert: Giant Hurricane Discovered On Saturn (Good Thing Obama Gutted U.S. Space Program, Isn’t It?)

May 1, 2013

Well, Obama has brought me around to realize the error of my ways.

A couple of years ago I wrote a scathing article about how Obama has fundamentally gutted the American space program in his “fundamental transformation” of America into a third-world banana republic.  And I was particularly pissed off (please pardon my language, but I’m trying to accurately describe my state of mind at that time) over the political correctness of the gutting of the space program that America had taken so much pride in before Messiah Obama.

I now realize how wrong I was.

But look, for the official record, I wasn’t the only one to be angry and appalled.  The former astronauts who made the American space program the greatest in the world – household-name astronauts such as Neil Armstrong – were just as livid as I was:

Ex-astronauts slam Obama space plan

The first man to walk on the moon has told senators that new plans by Barack Obama will cede America’s long-time space programme leadership to other nations.

Neil Armstrong and Eugene Cernan, the last astronaut on the moon, told a Senate Commerce Committee hearing that the US president’s plan to revamp the human space programme was short on ambition, including the decision to alter the Bush administration’s goal of establishing a permanent presence on the moon.

Mr Cernan said that he, Mr Armstrong and Apollo 13 commander James Lovell agreed that the administration’s budget for human space exploration “presents no challenges, has no focus, and in fact is a blueprint for a mission to ‘nowhere’”.

Mr Lovell, while not present at the hearing, issued a statement opposing Mr Obama’s Nasa budget.

So I’m in great company in my error.  Well, to the extent that Neil Armstrong isn’t disgraced for playing the role of Winston Smith vs. Big Brother in 1984.  I mean, look what happened to Winston.

But now we know why Obama’s magnificence is so magnificent.  And why the merely mortal such as myself and Neil Armstrong can only grovel at his feet.

Obama – as Messiah – knows what no merely mortal mind can know.  He knew that humans in space mean the pollution of space and the transportation of man-caused global warming to other worlds.

Are hurricanes caused by man-caused global warming?  Of course they are.  Just ask any liberal.  Ask Al Gore:

The images of Sandy’s flooding brought back memories of a similar—albeit smaller scale— event in Nashville just two years ago. There, unprecedented rainfall caused widespread flooding, wreaking havoc and submerging sections of my hometown. For me, the Nashville flood was a milestone. For many, Hurricane Sandy may prove to be a similar event: a time when the climate crisis—which is often sequestered to the far reaches of our everyday awareness became a reality.

While the storm that drenched Nashville was not a tropical cyclone like Hurricane Sandy, both storms were strengthened by the climate crisis. Scientists tell us that by continually dumping 90 million tons of global warming pollution into the atmosphere every single day, we are altering the environment in which all storms develop. As the oceans and atmosphere continue to warm, storms are becoming more energetic and powerful. Hurricane Sandy, and the Nashville flood, were reminders of just that. Other climate-related catastrophes around the world have carried the same message to hundreds of millions.

Okay.  So we have established fact here, don’t we?  Hurricanes are caused by man-caused global warming.  And bigger hurricanes are caused by more man-caused global warming.

So what do we make of a hurricane on Saturn that is TEN TIMES LARGER than any hurricane in the history of planet earth?

NASA’s Cassini probe discovers giant hurricane on Saturn
April 30, 2013
By: Matthew Reece

On Apr. 29, 2013, NASA announced that its Cassini probe had discovered an enormous hurricane in the atmosphere of Saturn. The hurricane is located at the north pole of Saturn, and has wind speeds of 530 kilometers per hour. Its eye wall is about 2,000 kilometers wide, nearly ten times larger than the eye walls of hurricanes on Earth. The large size of the hurricane is made possible in part by the fact that Saturn is just over nine times larger than Earth in diameter. A similar polar hurricane on Saturn’s south pole was spotted by Cassini in 2006.

“We did a double take when we saw this vortex because it looks so much like a hurricane on Earth,” said Andrew Ingersoll, a Cassini imaging team member at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. “But there it is at Saturn, on a much larger scale, and it is somehow getting by on the small amounts of water vapor in Saturn’s hydrogen atmosphere.”

Scientists hope that studying the hurricane will give insight into hurricanes on Earth. There are important differences between storms on Earth and storms on Saturn; for example, the Saturnian hurricane is locked into position over the planet’s north pole, while hurricanes on Earth tend to drift toward the poles, but never manage to get there. “The polar hurricane has nowhere else to go, and that’s likely why it’s stuck at the pole,” said Kunio Sayanagi, a Cassini imaging team associate at Hampton University in Hampton, Va. This suggests the possibility that at times in Earth’s past when the climate was warmer and more capable of producing strong hurricanes that long-lived polar storms could have developed on Earth.

Obama, in his sublime deity, knew this before the astrophysicists.  Those damn humans have already polluted Saturn – and we haven’t even BEEN there, yet.  Just imagine how big that damn hurricane would be if astronauts drove around in their giant NASA SUVs.

Oh, yes, the left rightly worships its Messiah:

Michelle Obama’s Speech: Red And Yellow Black And White, All Are Precious In Jesus-Obama’s Sight. Barry Loves The Little Tea Partiers Of The World.

Seriously: ‘I Pledge Allegiance To The Flag Of The Obama States Of America, And To The Messiah For Which It Stands…’

Liberals Glorify Their Messiah Obama By Defiling American Flag

Barack Obama Proclaimed As “The Messiah” – The Beast Is Coming

Obama’s Democratic Talking Points: Remind People I’m The Messiah

And Democrats don’t need the God of the Bible, having replaced Him with the greater and more magnificent Obama:

Demonic Bureaucrat Democrats Kick God Out Of Party Platform To Become Official Party Of God Damn America

Science should now be defined as that which agrees with and justifies Obama.  For Obama is the standard of all reality.

Well, either that, or these idiotic pompous fools are dragging America and anybody else dumbass enough to listen to them into dodo-bird extinction.

Because these liberal climate screamers are lunatic morons.  And the more degrees they write after their names, the more “lunatic-moron” they are for believing this idiocy.

I mean, again, you global warming buffoons who follow King Buffoon AlGore: what does that piece on Saturn’s hurricane say?

 “This suggests the possibility that at times in Earth’s past when the climate was warmer and more capable of producing strong hurricanes that long-lived polar storms could have developed on Earth.”

You know, remember back when there were no damn humans and earth was WARMER THAN IT IS NOW???  Remember that, you abject liberal dumbasses?

Which kind of points out that either actual science is bogus or every single liberal who ever lived ought to be sterilized lest they give birth and produce more of their pathologically stupid kind.

Once in a while the Obama “scientists” actually say something that reveals the truth.  Where does “climate change” come from – whether here, or on the damn planet SATURN, or any where else in our solar system where no human has ever been?  It comes from changes in the sun, rather than whatever the demon-possessed left says.

Jesus, the REAL Messiah, talked more about catastrophic climate change than ANYBODY.  He said it would happen just before the ultimate big government liberal – the beast – emerged to put the entire human race into the slavery of government tyranny.  But liberals, like their boss Satan, have made it their plan to hijack the Word of God and pervert it to their demonic ends.

Gutless RINO ‘Republicans’ Join Soulless Liberal Democrats In Demagoguing Climate Change No Matter How Idiotic It Is

April 11, 2013

Democrats probably LOVE to say, “Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger.”  And why wouldn’t they?  The man is a turd.

That said, this turd – who emerged from elite liberal Hollywood – became “Governator,” was very quickly broken by Democrats, and went from calling Democrats “gurly men” to bending over for the gurly men.

Arnold stands for homosexual marriage, the culture of abortion, the Dr. Mengele-like exploitation of embryos in the name of “science,” and pretty much every OTHER liberal wedge issue.

You can understand the contempt Turdzenegger has for the institution of marriage between a man and a woman given the contempt he displayed toward his own “marriage.”

Which means calling him a “Republican” is kind of like calling ubersocialist Barack Obama a “Republican.”  Give me a break.

But the disgraced turd who is so unfaithful and so hypocritical that he not only cheated on his wife, but cheated on the woman whom he was cheating on his wife with is back.  You know, like his “I’ll be back” line that he said in pretty much every movie he ever appeared in.

So now he’s pimping another leftwing cultural issue hoping that he’ll be a media darling again: he’s pimping “climate change.”

In a Los Angeles Times Op-Ed Arnold Turdzeneger wrote:

Schwarzenegger: California’s silent disaster
The National Climate Assessment presents a sobering vision of the world that awaits us if we don’t act.
April 08, 2013|By Arnold Schwarzenegger

I will always remember the day I woke to the news that more than 2,000 fires were burning in California. I thought I must not have heard correctly. Two thousand fires? How could that be?

In the end, the state’s brave firefighters, joined by contingents from out of state, won the battle. But not before 11 emergency declarations were issued and more than 400,000 acres burned. Countless lives and livelihoods were ruined.

Today, there’s a new disaster looming, and although it’s not as riveting or dramatic as walls of flames and billowing black smoke, it needs our immediate attention. The draft National Climate Assessment, now being circulated for comment and scheduled for release this year by the U.S. Global Change Research Program, presents a sobering vision of the world that awaits us if we don’t act.

This team of top climate scientists has concluded that our region of the country is hotter than it has ever been and that it will get hotter — because of humans. The last decade was the hottest the Southwestern U.S. has experienced — on average 2 degrees warmer than it had been historically. The scientists project a further increase over the next 50 years of 6 to 9 degrees if we do nothing.

Already we are seeing the effects of a warmer climate: droughts and heat waves that threaten lives, and, yes, fires.

This shift could spell disaster for California, long the nation’s agricultural powerhouse. The state produces more than half of the fruits, nuts and vegetables grown in the U.S., with an output of $43.5 billion last year. Californians don’t rely just on the food produced by the state’s farms; they rely on the revenue and the jobs too. Agriculture employs more than 1.5 million people in California.

This report spells out many other negative effects that rising temperatures will cause in California. Over the last 100 years, sea levels have risen about 7 inches, and the San Francisco Bay Area is already feeling the effects. A sewage system there was flooded with saltwater, and the 101 Freeway has seen flooding. This isn’t a distant threat.

Now, we are facing another rise in sea level of 1 to 4 feet. A rise of just 16 inches would be enough to endanger roads, highways and airports in San Francisco and Oakland. It could contaminate crucial groundwater in Los Angeles.

Heat is already the leading cause of weather-related deaths, and the expected temperature increase will mean longer and hotter heat waves, like the one that killed 164 Californians during a blistering week in 2006.

That’s the bad news contained in the National Climate Assessment. The good news is we can do something to prevent these dire outcomes.

The report should be a wake-up call for leaders in Washington to overcome gridlock and start working on solutions. For models of how to proceed, they need only look to California and other states and cities that have begun to move forward in a bipartisan way.

The first step for policymakers — and for ordinary citizens too — is to understand the situation we face, which means carefully reading the National Climate Assessment. It may not be as gripping to look at or have the provocative appeal of a raging wildfire or another act of God, but the knowledge in this report is crucial to understanding how to change, to adapt, to prevent and to prepare for future disasters.

Climate change.  Global warming.  Whatever these pathological liars will label it next.  It’s killing us.  We’re all going to die.

First of all, if you think the Los Angeles Times would have published Turdzenegger’s screed if he had said global warming was an idiotic myth, you’re a breathtaking idiot.  Nope, the ONLY way Turdzenegger can get back in the public’s good graces is by trying to preach the liberal line.  And of course to get his lines LEFT rather than right.

But the day that Turdzenegger said “Heat is already the leading cause of weather-related deaths” turned out to be a uberCOLD Spring day in California.  As Turdzenegger screamed that it was just getting hotter and hotter, I looked at my thermometer: it was in the forties.  By 11:00 AM, it was 51 degrees Fahrenheit.

Here’s what it was like in much of the rest of the nation – and note that the story is describing the actual climate on the VERY SAME DAY that Turdzenegger was writing his please-please-please don’t shun me piece:

Temperature suddenly plunges 55 degrees in Colorado: ‘It’s just brutal’
By Erin McClam and John Newland, NBC News
4/09/2013

Blizzard warnings were in effect Tuesday in Colorado, where the temperature plunged more than 50 degrees in less than 24 hours and the wind chill approached zero. Forecasters also expect hurricane-force blasts of frigid air in Utah and heavy snow in the Dakotas.

The culprit is a deep dip in the jet stream that swung west and pulled arctic air far into the country. As it collides with warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico, strong storms and tornadoes are possible in the Great Plains and Texas.

“It’s just brutal to be outside,” said Eric Fisher, a meteorologist for The Weather Channel.

Full coverage from Weather.com

In Denver, the temperature plummeted from 71 degrees at 2 p.m. Monday to 16 degrees at 7 a.m. Tuesday, with a wind chill of 1. More than 300 flights had been canceled into and out of Denver since Monday night.

Forecasters said Denver could get as much as 11 inches of snow and South Dakota more than a foot, with snow stretching as far north and east as Minnesota and Nebraska. In Utah, wind gusts of 75 mph were possible, The Weather Channel reported.

The calendar may say spring, but April is the second-snowiest month of the year in Denver. The city has averaged 9 inches in April since 1882, second only to the 11.5 inches it gets in an average March, according to the National Weather Service.

The weather pattern threatened to bring damaging wind, large hail and perhaps tornadoes to parts of Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska and Iowa, and weaker storms later in the day in the Ohio Valley.

“We’re looking at the gamut today for severe weather,” Weather Channel meteorologist Kevin Roth said.

As the system moves east, severe storms are possible Wednesday across a boomerang-shaped swath of the country from the Texas Gulf Coast north through Indiana and into western Pennsylvania.

Severe storms could move into Georgia, West Virginia and the Carolinas on Thursday.

This is a common event.  Oh, yeah All the time.  Pretty much every damn year.  You can count on it.  Every year.  Including this year right here in our capitol.

Remember when global warming idiots brazenly said that “snow is starting to disappear from our lives”???  Seriously, do you remember this crap?  What’s that?  You idiots DON’T remember this?  We are at a point of global stupidity when these fools can be wrong a thousand times and still win the argument with an intellectually moronic and morally idiotic culture.

The Arctic ice returns to normal, in contradiction to the liberal demagogues.  But the liberal lies go on and on.  And on, of course.

That’s what “global warming” really proves, of course: that liberals are abject liars who will stop at nothing.

When we get the most snow in a hundred years, why is it?  Because it’s so damn hot it’s actually cold.

I’ve repeatedly described “climate change” events that preached global warming that had to be canceled because it was way too damn cold to have the event.

I’ve explained that in contrast to what the global warming alarmists keep screeching, global temperatures are PLUNGING.  And while we’ve dumped more CO2 into the global atmosphere in the last ten years than during ANY time in history, there is no correlating rise in temperature to show for it.

I’ve pointed out that the shenanigans that the left have pulled off in the name of “climate change” has been bogus fraud after fraud after fraud.  It turns out that if you actually factor in the environmental, CO2-spewing costs to the environment of producing and disposing of the batteries for the electric cars, they are actually FAR more polluting than the gas-guzzlers.

I’ve pointed out how the “scientists” keep being wrong in their hyping over global warming.  As well as how they have repeatedly warped legitimate science to hype it.  As in they’ve done it and gotten caught doing it over and over and over again.  Which of course very much includes the abject scientific fraud that is Obama.  That’s right, I said Obama is a fraud and a liar.  As well as the vile tactics that liberals will go to to ignore “science” so they can hype a blatantly false message.

Global Warming is a pseudo-scientific fraud.  Period.

I’ve pointed out the tragic tendency of liberals to believe whatever “science” tells them – no matter how monstrous the message they are asked to believe.

Which is why the left wants to murder hundreds of millions of precious human babies in the global abortion mills by depriving humans of their humanity while giving “Mother Earth” the status that they deny to actual human beings.

I’ve explained that there is NO scientific reason to embrace “global warming” by whatever name the libturds want to call it.  I’ve pointed out that legitimate science actually documents the fact that – in utter disproof of “man-cased global warming,” the temperatures in the pre-industrial world were considerably WARMER than they are now.

I’ve also written about what the TRUE monstrous agenda of the left is – over global warming and pretty much everything else.  Just read the quotes near the bottom of the article to see how profoundly demonic and anti-human the global warming lobby truly is.

I’ve explained that “global warming” and sky-high gasoline prices go hand in glove.  Oh, yes, and energy prices, too.

In just one article, I documented a number of facts that refute anthropogenic global warming:

I’ve written numerous articles on the legitimate issues casting doubt on global warming. Consider facts such as: 1) the history of planet earth is a history of climate change and huge swings in climate; 2) we have seen even larger episodes of “global warming” on the planets in our solar system – none of which have SUVs driving around on them – than we see on our own planet earth; 3) the “science” of global warming has been warped with mind-boggling acts of fraud and shocking manipulation of data; 4) not only is there no “consensus” about “global warming” but in fact increasing numbers of scientists are outright hostile about “‘decarbonizing’ the world’s economy”; and 5) in spite of all evidence to the contrary, the United Nations is demanding $76 TRILLION in what amounts to pure socialist redistributionism to “save the planet” from “climate change.”

I just learned that the Old Kingdom of Egypt began as a result of an enormous climate shift in which Northern Africa went from a verdant and fertile land to a desert while the Nile began to bloom (4000 BC) and collapsed as a result of massive climate change in which the Nile transformed from lush farmland into dust. And nobody was driving SUVs, were they??? Just as nobody is driving SUVs on Mars.

The fact of the matter is that it was never anything more than a completely artificial and arbitrary decision to blame manmade CO2 – which constitutes such a tiny infinitesimal fraction of the actual global warming gasses it is unreal – for all of our current climate change. When manmade CO2 very obviously never had ANYTHING WHATSOEVER to do with all the myriad episodes of climate change that have characterized the history of planet earth from time immemorial ever before.

But liberals swear up and down that we must spend at least $76 trillion to fight the manmade CO2 bogeyman regardless.

Again, what caused the collapse of the Old Kingdom in Egypt?  “Climate change.”  Either because those damned pharaohs were driving around in pollution-spewing SUVs and pickup trucks, or in complete refutation of everything liberals are trying to say now.  And the fact remains that the Roman Empire was able to become great at a time when temperatures were considerably warmer than they are now.  In complete refutation of everything liberals are trying to say now about the horrendous danger of global warming.

And, again, where are the reports of the SUVs and pickup trucks being found by the millions on MARS?

“Evidence that CO2 is not the principle driver of warming on this planet is provided by the simultaneous warming of other planets and moons in our solar system, despite the fact that they obviously have no anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases. Mars, Triton, Pluto and Jupiter all show global warming, pointing to the Sun as the dominating influence in determining climate throughout the solar system.”

History refutes them.  Which is why “history” is such an unimportant subject to the left and why they always want to rewrite history.

And it doesn’t matter how many jobs these leftists destroy.  They talk about caring about the poor, but they don’t give a damn about actual people.

The actual major polluters get a complete pass from the left.  China, India and Russia can go on polluting; it’s only the WEST that must stop.  Why is that, if there’s an actual crisis?

The fact is that the true agenda of the left – whether about “global warming” or anything else – is the worship of Satan rather than the God of the Bible and Marxist redistributionism.  And liberal progressive “science” was at the heart of the last Holocaust, just as it is at the heart of the present one.

For the record, I DO believe that the climate is changing.  I believe what legitimate science has actually already proven: that changes in the sun trigger changes in our climate, and all the liberals who say that human beings can control the earth’s climate have redistributed bovine feces into their skulls.

What is interesting is that Jesus and the prophets in the Bible were the ones who talked about crazy climate changes in the last days.  Liberals have hijacked an issue that proves that we are in the last days as they strive to bring the very last days that the Bible described to come to pass.

Scientifically Proven FACT: Republicans Ruled Earth For 39,000 Consecutive Years (Arctic Ocean From 50,000-11,000 Years Ago Was Warmer Than Now)

September 1, 2012

It’s amazing what science is proving these days.

Evil Republicans ruled the earth for thousands upon thousands of years in antiquity, perpetuating their vile global warming to a helpless planet earth.

Either that, or global warming is believed by the world’s most pathetically stupid people:

New paper finds deep Arctic Ocean from 50,000 to 11,000 years ago was 1–2°C warmer than modern temperatures
Posted on August 29, 2012by Anthony Watts

Reposted from the Hockey Schtick

A new paper published in Nature Geoscience finds “From about 50,000 to 11,000 years ago, the central Arctic Basin from 1,000 to 2,500 meters deep was … 1–2°C warmer than modern Arctic Intermediate Water.” This finding is particularly surprising because it occurred during the last major ice age.

 
Horizontal axis is thousands of years ago with modern temperatures at the left and 50,000 years ago at the right. Temperature proxy of the Intermediate Water Layer of the Arctic Ocean is shown in top graph with degrees C anomaly noted at the upper right vertical axis.

Deep Arctic Ocean warming during the last glacial cycle

T. M. Cronin, G. S. Dwyer, J. Farmer, H. A. Bauch, R. F.

Nature Geoscience (2012) doi:10.1038/ngeo1557

Abstract:
In the Arctic Ocean, the cold and relatively fresh water
beneath the sea ice is separated from the underlying warmer
and saltier Atlantic Layer by a halocline. Ongoing sea ice
loss and warming in the Arctic Ocean have
demonstrated the instability of the halocline, with
implications for further sea ice loss. The stability of the
halocline through past climate variations is unclear.
Here we estimate intermediate water temperatures over the
past 50,000 years from the Mg/Ca and Sr/Ca values of
ostracods from 31 Arctic sediment cores. From about 50 to
11 [thousand years] ago, the central Arctic Basin from
1,000 to 2,500m was occupied by a water mass we call
Glacial Arctic Intermediate Water. This water mass was
1–2°C warmer than modern Arctic Intermediate Water,
with temperatures peaking during or just before millennial-scale Heinrich cold
events and the Younger Dryas cold interval. We use
numerical modelling to show that the intermediate depth
warming could result from the expected decrease in the flux
of fresh water to the Arctic Ocean during glacial conditions,
which would cause the halocline to deepen and push the
warm Atlantic Layer into intermediate depths. Although not
modelled, the reduced formation of cold, deep waters due to
the exposure of the Arctic continental shelf could also
contribute to the intermediate depth warming.

On the other hand, given the abject failure of Barack Obama and given the Democrat Party’s pathetic inability to so much as even come up with a damn BUDGET for over three years, another 39,000 consecutive years of Republican rule is a fitting proposition.

I’m fine with ruling the world for 39,000 years, but unfortunately, I think it’s that other thing about liberals just being that damn stupid that they’ll believe whatever their hand puppet masters tell them to believe.

‘The Light At The End Of The Tunnel Has Been Turned Off’: An 11 Mile Stretch Of The Mississippi River Has Been Closed Due To Drought In God Damn America

August 23, 2012

When things got real bad in Russia in the aftermath of that nation’s collapse due to socialism, that was what the Russians were saying: “The light at the end of the tunnel has been shut off.”

Well, things aren’t going well in the God damn America of Barack Obama.

Which, you ought to know, I pretty much predicted the very day Obama won the election.

This drought that has been going on and on for the last three years (kind of like Obama) has been like a curse right out of the Bible:

(CNN) – Marjorye Heeney knew something was wrong when she saw a bulging cloud of black dust darken the sky.

Drought-like conditions dried this Kern River bed last year near Bakersfield, California.

Drought-like conditions dried this Kern River bed last year near Bakersfield, California.

She then heard an eerie, train-like whistle as fierce winds rattled her front door and windows. When she looked outside, hordes of grasshoppers and crows swarmed over her father’s barren farm. After the storm broke, her father walked outside and muttered curses as he scanned the horizon for rain clouds.

“I can remember my dad just watching the sky so closely,” Heeney says. “A sprinkle would excite him so much.”

That’s how Heeney, now 83, describes growing up on an Oklahoma farm during the Dust Bowl storms in the 1930s. For much of that decade, “black blizzards” — formed by a prolonged drought and poor farming techniques — ravaged much of the nation.

Now a new generation of Americans is again anxiously looking to the sky. Drought has returned to the United States, and some warn that more tough days are ahead.

The value of water is starting to become apparent in America. Over the past three years a drought has affected large swaths of the country, and conflicts over water usage may become commonplace in the future, climatologists say.

I have been calling this country “God Damn America” since the ugly night of November 4, 2008.  And that is exactly what it has been under Obama.

Well, God Damn America just got truly historic:

Drought Forces An 11 Mile Section Of The Mississippi River To Be Closed
Sam Ro|Aug. 20, 2012, 6:29 PM

The devastating U.S. drought has been causing water levels to fall in the Mississippi River.

The AP’s Adrian Sainz reports:

Nearly 100 boats and barges were waiting for passage Monday along an 11-mile stretch of the Mississippi River that has been closed due to low water levels, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

New Orleans-based Coast Guard spokesman Ryan Tippets said the stretch of river near Greenville, Miss., has been closed intermittently since Aug. 11, when a vessel ran aground.

Tippets said it is not immediately clear when the river will re-open.

The Mississippi River is a crucial trade route for coal and agricultural goods. Low water levels had already been disrupting trade flows due to bottlenecking along the river.

When was the last time the Mississippi River closed???  The Mississippi is the mightiest river in America and one of the great rivers in the world.  And now it’s literally drying up.

Why I’m Offended Over NASA’s Mars Rover Mission

August 7, 2012

I might be wrong, but I’ve read several stories about the Mars Rover mission now – and every single one of them only provides ONE reason for why NASA launched this $2.5 billion mission: to search for proof of evolution in the form of proof of panspermia.

Panspermia is the view that life was – as religious people have told them for thousands of years – far too complex to have originated on earth.  So since we know that there could not possibly have been an Intelligent Creator God, the only remaining possibility is that life evolved somewhere else and then came here.

Panspermia has largely been the most radical religious faith commitment of atheistic scientism: because you’ve merely punted the origin of life to a place where we can’t possibly find how it “evolved.”

Directed panspermia is an attempt to evade some of the difficulties associated with the concept of abiogenesis. Panspermia theories argue that life began elsewhere in the universe and was subsequently seeded on earth. Some proponents of panspermia hold that life rode on meteorites travelling through space which eventually landed on earth and allowed the Darwinian mechanism to take over. A major problem with this suggestion is the sheer improbability that any life form could survive the radiation and extreme temperatures found in space.

Other proponents of panspermia, such as the co-discoverer of the double helix structure of DNA, Francis Crick, suggest that intelligent aliens visited earth and seeded it with the first life form. The willingness of many scientists to resort to the hypothesis of aliens does not say much for their prospects of finding a feasible naturalistic model for the origin of life. The main problem with panspermia theories is that they only explain how life initially got to earth — they say nothing about the actual origin of life. All such theories merely attempt to shift the problem of the emergence of life to another location.

But here we are, spending $2.5 billion to see if life originated on Mars.

In a way, it’s almost reassuring: the very craziest theory of evolution is now essentially the most mainstream of all the craziest possibilities.

What’s the purpose of the Mars Rover mission?  It is this:

to find whether Mars has the crucial ingredients that could once have supported life.

Well, here’s the thing: what happens if the Mars Rover finds no life on Mars?  What if they don’t find evidence that Mars supported life?  Was the mission a failure?  Was the money wasted?  How could it NOT be given the purpose of the mission???

NASA needs to either find something they can call “evidence” that Mars could have once supported life or they need to explain why they pissed away $2.5 billion in a day when America is going broke.

I’m just telling you right now that they’re going to conjure up the former so they won’t have to do the latter.  I read articles whose headlines screech that some incredible new find has “proven” evolution.  Invariably I end up reading some incredibly minor and trivial thing that amounts to “Mt. Molehill.”  If you read enough of these, you will begin to conclude that the more meaningless a “discovery” is, the louder they are in hyping it.

And just to continue: if they can’t find life on Mars and aren’t able to fabricate some “evidence” that they did, would they finally acknowledge that boy were we ever wrong in our idiotic Darwinism and let’s all join hands and worship our Lord God Almighty?  NO!  Theirs is a radical religious faith commitment that literally everything came from nothing.  They believe that life came from lifelessness.  They believe that intelligence is the result of mindlessness.  They believe that all the purpose and meaning and value came from purposeless, meaningless, valueless nothingness.

When the purpose of a $2.5 billion mission is to find evidence of life, there is a lot of pressure to FIND “evidence” of life.  But let’s say they don’t “find” it.  Is that it?  Do they acknowledge, well, shoot, I guess we were wrong”?  Hardly.  They’ll say, well, there were a lot of other sites we could have landed on.  We’ll need to come back to a different site next time.  Or to a different planet (Uranus sounds good).  Or to one of an infinite number of planets.  Believing that life is “out there” means never having to admit you were wrong.

With the help of Ann Coulter, I’ve described this impossibility of ever refuting an atheist to the satisfaction of the atheist before:

Ann Coulter pointed it out with the false claim that evolution was “falsifiable” versus any religious claim which was not. Darwin said, “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by numerous, successive, slight modifications, my theory would absolutely break down.” And Ann Coulter brilliantly changed a couple of words to demonstrate what a load of crap that was: “If it could be demonstrated that any complex organ existed which could not possibly have been formed by God, my God theory would absolutely break down.”

In any words, evolution is no more “scientifically falsifiable” than even the most ardent young earth creationist claim. Their standard is impossible to prove. I mean, you show me that God “could not possibly have” created the earth.

The whole way they sold evolution was a lie.

And I then stated:

There is NEVER an admission of guilt or an acknowledgment of error by these people.  They simply suppress or destroy the evidence, or “morph” their argument, or anything but acknowledge that just maybe they should be open-minded and question their presuppositions.

The reason “scientists” tell us that we can’t drag our religion into science is because you can’t disprove that God didn’t create.  That might be true; but you can’t disprove evolution any more than you can disprove God.  Because both evolution and Creation are equally religious views.

Then there’s NASA.  How much should we trust an agency that literally got started by Nazi rocket scientists?

NASA is the home of James Hansen – a man who literally screeched that the world was going to freeze in an ice age before changing his tune to say it was going to melt due to global warming before changing his tune to say that it wasn’t so much “global warming” as “climate change” to changing his tune to say that no it’s going to melt again.  They tell us that “snowfalls are going to be a thing of the past” in the summer and then tell us – and I’m not making this up - that it’s so damn cold only because it’s really so damn hot in the winter.

You can understand the mindset: when you’ve got the coldest winter since 1886, blame it on global warming and then make sure you quit calling it “global warming” and start calling it “climate change.”  When you call it “climate change” you don’t even NEED a damn theory any more; all you’ve got to do is demagogue every hot day or every cold day or every tornado or every hurricane or every whatever.

Being completely wrong is a way of life for these fools.

“Science” says that global warming skepticism equals RACISM.

Problems with this ice age no we meant global warming no we meant climate change no we were right when we said global warming (at least until winter comes again) theory abound:

I’ve written numerous articles on the legitimate issues casting doubt on global warming. Consider facts such as: 1) the history of planet earth is a history of climate change and huge swings in climate; 2) we have seen even larger episodes of “global warming” on the planets in our solar system – none of which have SUVs driving around on them – than we see on our own planet earth; 3) the “science” of global warming has been warped with mindboggling acts of fraud and shocking manipulation of data; 4) not only is there no “consensus” about “global warming” but in fact increasing numbers of scientists are outright hostile about “‘decarbonizing’ the world’s economy”; and 5) in spite of all evidence to the contrary, the United Nations is demanding $76 TRILLION in what amounts to pure socialist redistributionism to “save the planet” from “climate change.”

I just learned that the Old Kingdom of Egypt began as a result of an enormous climate shift in which Northern Africa went from a verdant and fertile land to a desert while the Nile began to bloom (4000 BC) and collapsed as a result of massive climate change in which the Nile transformed from lush farmland into dust. And nobody was driving SUVs, were they??? Just as nobody is driving SUVs on Mars.

The fact of the matter is that it was never anything more than a completely artificial and arbitrary decision to blame manmade CO2 – which constitutes such a tiny infinitesimal fraction of the actual global warming gasses it is unreal – for all of our current climate change. When manmade CO2 very obviously never had ANYTHING WHATSOEVER to do with all the myriad episodes of climate change that have characterized the history of planet earth from time immemorial ever before.

But liberals swear up and down that we must spend at least $76 trillion to fight the manmade CO2 bogeyman regardless.

Oops.  Did I say the left wanted $76 trillion?  That was yesterday.  They actually need $145 trillion.  They need to travel to their conferences so they can learn to be better hysterical alarmist in style, you see.  When said global warming conferences aren’t postponed or canceled due to snow.

And the people who are so damned occupied with finding life somewhere else have documented an appalling hostility to human life on our very own planet:

“My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.” – Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

Mankind is the most dangerous, destructive, selfish and unethical animal on the earth.”
- Michael Fox, vice-president of The Humane Society

Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs.”
- John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal

Humans on the Earth behave in some ways like a pathogenic micro-organism, or like the cells of a tumor.”
- Sir James Lovelock, Healing Gaia

The Earth has cancer and the cancer is Man.”
- Club of Rome, Mankind at the Turning Point

A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion. At the more frugal European standard of living, 2 to 3 billion would be possible.”
- United Nations, Global Biodiversity Assessment

A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.”
- Prof Paul Ehrlich, The Population Bomb

A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”
- Ted Turner, founder of CNN and major UN donor [and major DEMOCRAT PARTY DONOR]

So pardon me if I’m not impressed with the “James Hansen Agency” or its “missions.”

And pardon me for looking at what “scientists” and even NASA “scientists” have done with global warming and understand why I’m more than a tad skeptical about this “mission” that really already seems to have a predetermined “discovery.”

It is hard for me to believe that our most brilliant of brains over at NASA couldn’t have figured out a way to come up with a purpose for sending that rover to Mars that didn’t involve “proving” that there is no God and I’m just the result of a race that began as a protein that evolved into a microbe that evolved into a fish that evolved into a lizard that evolved into a monkey that evolved into a man.  And I’m saying if that was their only reason for their $2.5 billion mission, I wish they’d saved the money.

I remember when the first Soviet astronaut went into space: he declared “I don’t see any God up here.”

It’s truly sad that even as NASA has outsourced its space program to the Russians at the cost of $63 million per seat in the age of Obama, we are at the very same time embracing the “mission” of the Soviet space program to prove there isn’t a God out in space.

But that is where we seem to be.

If you’re going to have a mission to explore space and increase the knowledge of science, I’m all for it.  If you’re going to have a mission to prove atheistic panspermia, then leave me out of it.  And leave my tax dollars out of it.  If you think I’m wrong for having that attitude, then I hope you’ll be demanding that NASA’s next mission goes to Mars to “search for the crucial ingredients to support young earth creationism.”

Panic Over Greenland Ice Melt Like The Whackjob Leftist Media Wants You To? Not If You Know The Truth

July 25, 2012

Liberal screed: “The sky is falling!  The SKY is falling!”

Satellites see Unprecedented Greenland Ice Sheet Melt
July 24, 2012

PASADENA, Calif. – For several days this month, Greenland’s surface ice cover melted over a larger area than at any time in more than 30 years of satellite observations. Nearly the entire ice cover of Greenland, from its thin, low-lying coastal edges to its 2-mile-thick (3.2-kilometer) center, experienced some degree of melting at its surface, according to measurements from three independent satellites analyzed by NASA and university scientists.

On average in the summer, about half of the surface of Greenland’s ice sheet naturally melts. At high elevations, most of that melt water quickly refreezes in place. Near the coast, some of the melt water is retained by the ice sheet, and the rest is lost to the ocean. But this year the extent of ice melting at or near the surface jumped dramatically. According to satellite data, an estimated 97 percent of the ice sheet surface thawed at some point in mid-July.

Researchers have not yet determined whether this extensive melt event will affect the overall volume of ice loss this summer and contribute to sea level rise.

“The Greenland ice sheet is a vast area with a varied history of change. This event, combined with other natural but uncommon phenomena, such as the large calving event last week on Petermann Glacier, are part of a complex story,” said Tom Wagner, NASA’s cryosphere program manager in Washington. “Satellite observations are helping us understand how events like these may relate to one another as well as to the broader climate system.”

Son Nghiem of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. was analyzing radar data from the Indian Space Research Organisation’s (ISRO) Oceansat-2 satellite last week when he noticed that most of Greenland appeared to have undergone surface melting on July 12. Nghiem said, “This was so extraordinary that at first I questioned the result: was this real or was it due to a data error?”

Nghiem consulted with Dorothy Hall at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. Hall studies the surface temperature of Greenland using the Moderate-resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra and Aqua satellites. She confirmed that MODIS showed unusually high temperatures and that melt was extensive over the ice sheet surface.

Thomas Mote, a climatologist at the University of Georgia, Athens; and Marco Tedesco of City University of New York also confirmed the melt seen by Oceansat-2 and MODIS with passive-microwave satellite data from the Special Sensor Microwave Imager/Sounder on a U.S. Air Force meteorological satellite.

The melting spread quickly. Melt maps derived from the three satellites showed that on July 8, about 40 percent of the ice sheet’s surface had melted. By July 12, 97 percent had melted.

This extreme melt event coincided with an unusually strong ridge of warm air, or a heat dome, over Greenland. The ridge was one of a series that has dominated Greenland’s weather since the end of May. “Each successive ridge has been stronger than the previous one,” said Mote. This latest heat dome started to move over Greenland on July 8, and then parked itself over the ice sheet about three days later. By July 16, it had begun to dissipate.

Even the area around Summit Station in central Greenland, which at 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) above sea level is near the highest point of the ice sheet, showed signs of melting. Such pronounced melting at Summit and across the ice sheet has not occurred since 1889, according to ice cores analyzed by Kaitlin Keegan at Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H. A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration weather station at Summit confirmed air temperatures hovered above or within a degree of freezing for several hours July 11 to 12.

“Ice cores from Summit show that melting events of this type occur about once every 150 years on average. With the last one happening in 1889, this event is right on time,” said Lora Koenig, a Goddard glaciologist and a member of the research team analyzing the satellite data. “But if we continue to observe melting events like this in upcoming years, it will be worrisome.”

Nghiem’s finding while analyzing Oceansat-2 data was the kind of benefit that NASA and ISRO had hoped to stimulate when they signed an agreement in March 2012 to cooperate on Oceansat-2 by sharing data.

Wow, that’s really scary.  Maybe I should become like Al Gore and buy a giant, carbon spewing jet plane for myself and live in mansions that use eighty times as much energy as my tea party neighbors’ homes.

At least they slipped that part about the ice melting just like this every 150 years in at the bottom where most people aren’t even still reading anymore.

Or maybe I should try thinking for myself and dig a tiny bit deeper than the fascist redistributionists climate change alarmists wants me to see:

Greenland Ice Melt every 150 years is ‘right on time’

UPDATE: see this new article on the issue,

“Ice cores from Summit show that melting events of this type occur about once every 150 years on average. With the last one happening in 1889, this event is right on time,” says Lora Koenig, a Goddard glaciologist and a member of the research team analyzing the satellite data.

Measurements from three satellites showed that on July 8, about 40 percent of the ice sheet had undergone thawing at or near the surface. In just a few days, the melting had dramatically accelerated and an estimated 97 percent of the ice sheet surface had thawed by July 12. In the image, the areas classified as “probable melt” (light pink) correspond to those sites where at least one satellite detected surface melting. The areas classified as “melt” (dark pink) correspond to sites where two or three satellites detected surface melting. The satellites are measuring different physical properties at different scales and are passing over Greenland at different times.

I covered this over the weekend when Bill McKibben started wailing about the albedo going off the charts. I thought it might be soot related. The PR below and quote above is from NASA Goddard. I had to laugh at the title of their press release, where they cite “Unprecedented Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Melt”, then contradict themselves when the main researcher goes on to say “melting events of this type occur about once every 150 years on average. With the last one happening in 1889“. Do these guys even read their own press releases? Climatologist Pat Michaels concurs saying: “Apparently NASA should start distributing dictionaries to the authors of its press releases.”

I’ve sent off a note to the NASA writer, seen here. Maybe she’ll get the headline fixed.

That, and they seem surprised that the Greenland ice sheet would suddenly start melting in summer. Though, not every part of the ice sheet is melting right now, so perhaps their calibrations might be a bit off:

There may have been a brief few days of melt, but it appears to be over:

Ah, darn.  That’s too bad.  And I’d gone down to the San Fran Nan Lib store and bought myself a nice tinfoil hat and everything.

NASA should have fired global warming alarmist pseudo-scientist frauds like James Hanson forty years ago.  That was when James Hanson first came out as a fraud alarmist with his hysteria about an ice age (global cooling).  Then he flipped on a dime – because that’s what science is, isn’t it? – and became one of the leaders of the “global WARMING” movement.  But that turned out to be a clearly bogus claim as we kept racking up some of the coldest winters in modern history.  The problem was that global temperatures kept PLUNGING when they had predicted they would be RISING.  So they changed “global warming” to “climate change” because “global warming” had become such an obvious fraud.  And now they’re saying it’s so damn cold because it’s so damn hot in the winter and then saying “Aha!  LOOK at the global warming!” every summer.

The Price Tag For Obama’s Being Able to Boast Is Hundreds Of Thousands Of Taxpayer Money For Every Chevy Volt Sold

July 19, 2012

Just imagine for a second if George Bush had this giant of an albatross hanging off his neck.  Good thing it’s Obama’s complete policy and worldview failure so the mainstream media can “spin” failure into magnificent success:

Media Fail: Chevy Volt Makes NO Money, Costs Taxpayers Hundreds of Thousands of Dollars Per Car
By Seton Motley | July 17, 2012 | 09:54

The Jurassic Press is missing much in their reporting on the $50 billion bailout of General Motors (GM). The Press is open channeling for President Barack Obama – allowing him to frame the bailout exactly as he wishes in the 2012 Presidential election.

The President is running in large part on the bailout’s $30+ billion loss, uber-failed “success.” And the Press is acting as his stenographers. An epitome of this bailout nightmare mess is the electric absurdity that is the Chevrolet Volt. The Press is at every turn covering up – rather than covering – the serial failures of President Obama’s signature vehicle.

The Press has failed to mention at least five Volt fires, myopically focusing on the one the Obama Administration hand-selected for attention.

The Press has failed to mention that the Volt fire problem remains unsolved. Is it the battery? Is it the charging station? Is it the charging cable? All of the above?

GM and the Administration don’t know. And the Press ain’t breaking their necks trying to find out.

In more recent news, the Press has almost as one hailed the June Volt sales increase.

GM’s Volt Sales Up in June

Surprising June Sales for Volt

Chevy Volt Leads US Plug-In Car Sales

Chevy Volt Sales Increases

Volt Records Second-Best Sales Month

The Press has for the most part failed to mention how pathetic this “second-best sales month” actually is. And even when one Dinosaur does, the unwarranted enthusiasm is palpable.

GM sells 1760 Volts in June, double from 2011

Wow. Huge number.

The Press also fails to put this pathetic tally in perspective.

The Chevy Cruze is basically a Volt without the dead-weight, flammable 400-lb. electric battery. Which makes it $17,000, rather than the Volt’s $41,000.

Chevy in June sold 18,983 Cruzes – more than ten times the number of Volts. And that’s down 1/3 from last June’s 24,648.

But that feeble Volt tally has the Press all revved up.

And speaking of the Volt’s ridiculous $41,000 sticker price:

According to multiple GM executives there is little or no profit being made on each Volt built at a present cost of around $40,000. Furthermore, the $700 million of development that went into the car has to be recouped.

Get that? GM makes “little or no profit” on the Volt.

So it makes perfect sense that GM would spend millions of dollars advertising it, does it not? No ideological or campaign intent there, eh President Obama?

Look, I get it, it’s fun. I just spent $1 million – of your money – advertising free air. On which my profit margin is just as good as GM’s is on the Volt.

Only my ads didn’t have a song, or a dance. We just aren’t as cool as the Volt.

I mean, it’s so cool – it can travel back in time to inspire the production of cars before it even existed.

I mean, it’s so cool – it can travel back in time to offer the exact same technology as a car from 1991. And the exact same electric battery range as a car from 1897.

We’re talking retro-grade cool.

But wait – there’s so much more.

(A)dd $240 million in Energy Department grants doled out to G.M. last summer, $150 million in federal money to the Volt’s Korean battery supplier, up to $1.5 billion in tax breaks for purchasers and other consumer incentives, and some significant portion of the $14 billion loan G.M. got in 2008 for “retooling” its plants, and you’ve got some idea of how much taxpayer cash is built into every Volt.

Speaking of those “tax breaks for purchasers and other consumer incentives” – as of November of last year that tally all by itself was $250,000 per Volt sold.

And that excruciating pain is ongoing. Again, a Volt sold makes GM no money – but costs We the Taxpayers a $7,500 bribe – I mean “incentive.” Oh – and President Obama wants to jack that bribe to $10,000 per.

I guess it’s good news after all that Volt sales remain so anemic.

And with GM’s new 60-day return policy, it looks like you can buy a Volt and cash the $7,500 bribe check. Then return the Volt – and keep the $7,500 bribe cash. How’s that for Taxpayer coin stewardship?

Keep all of this outrageousness in mind when next the Jurassic Press joins with the Obama Administration in celebrating the Chevy Volt.

But it (allegedly) helps President Obama get reelected. And nothing would make the Press happier – and for that there’s (almost?) nothing they won’t do.

Pardon me while I go get myself $7,500 of free money by “renting” a Volt long enough to cash my Obama bribe check. 

It’s the least I can do to help destroy America while helping re-elect Obama – which ironically also means destroying America.

Why Liberals Are America’s Nazis: A Look At The Milgram Experiment, Fanatic Religious Faith In Global Warming And Worship Of Big Government Authority

June 4, 2012

Ever hear about the Milgram Experiment?  It was a rather famous – or  infamous – 1962 experiment that measured the willingness of ordinary Americans to brutalize or even torture another human being under the auspices of a white-coated authority.  Milgram found that 62 percent of Americans would pull a switch that delivered what they believed was progressively high doses of electricity that ultimately reached what would have been a fatal dose of 450 volts.

Milgram said by way of conclusion to what he had learned through his experiment that, “If a system of death camps were set up in the United States of the sort we had seen in Nazi Germany, one would be able to find sufficient personnel for those camps in any medium-sized American town.”  [But allow me to point out at the very outset that Milgram's initial experiment actually measured garden variety Connecticut liberals and the subsequent verifications of his experiment mainly measured liberals located in liberal university towns].

That thought frankly ought to scare the crap out of you as you survey your neighbors and your friends and consider what kind of hell they would willingly support in the event of a political change.  You ought to realize you could very quickly end up being the next “Jew” in the next Nazi Germany.  And if you claim that the fundamental decency of the American people would preclude that from happening, the title of “fool” belongs to you.

I was watching a program about a repeat of that experiment that ended up showing that ordinary Americans are as willing to follow a white-coated authority figure’s instructions to brutalize as they EVER were.  You can skim through this to familiarize yourself with the experiment and the findings:

Would You Have Been A Nazi?
A new test of Milgram’s obedience experiment asks if it can still happen here.
Ronald Bailey | January 6, 2009

Don’t answer too hastily, but have you ever wondered what you would have done if you grew up in Nazi Germany? Of course, we all hope that we would have had the moral strength to stand against that monstrous regime, but can we be so sure? After all, times were tough and both important politicians and leading intellectuals supported Nazi theories and policies. And then there were the ordinary Germans, friendly neighbors like Karl and Lötte down the street. They had joined the Party and were sending little Wolfgang and Gretchen to healthful Party-sponsored summer camps. Being a Nazi was normal for many Germans. Would things have been any different for you or me if we had been unfortunate enough to grow up at that time and in that place?

The most horrific feature of Nazi and Communist regimes, of course, was their industrial-scale savagery. The Nazis managed to murder six million Jews and 22 millionother Europeans. The Soviet Communists exterminated 62 millionand the Chinese Communists killed 35 million. While these murders were ordered by vicious dictators, they were actually carried out by ordinary people like Karl and Lötte. Which brings us to the famous obedience studies conducted by Yale University psychologist Stanley Milgram.

In 1961, Milgram did research involving ordinary residents of New Haven, Connecticut, who participated in an experiment that ostensibly aimed at determining the effect of punishment on learning. Along with the experimenter, the situation involved two subjects, one a “teacher” and the other a “learner.” The learner was a confederate of the experimenters, so the teacher was the only actual participant. In the experiment, the learner was supposed to memorize a list of word associations. The learner was strapped down to a chair with an electrode attached to his wrist. To encourage learning, the teacher was to pull switches that would supposedly increase electric shocks from 15-volts up to 450-volts in 15 volt increments. Before the experiment began, both the teacher and the learner were given 45-volt shocks. In addition, the switchers were labeled with warnings such as Slight Shock, Moderate Shock, and so forth, all the way up to Danger: Severe Shock. The final two switches were marked XXX.

As the experiment proceeded, the learner (experimental confederate) would keep making wrong answers. The teacher (experimental subject) would then be instructed by the expermenter to progressively pull the switch for ever higher levels of shock. The learner would begin to make noises expressing pain at 75-volts increasing in loudness until 150-volts, at which point he would urgently demand to be released, complaining of heart palpitations. His complaints would grow louder until 300-volts were reached. At 330-volts the learner fell silent. If the teacher showed signs of wanting to discontinue, the experimenter offered a series of prompts:

  • “Please continue”
  • “The experiment requires that you continue”
  • “It is absoulutely essential that you continue”
  • “You have no other choice, youmust go on”

The appalling results of these obedience experiments was that 65 percent of participants eventually pulled all of the switches, ultimately reaching the 450-volt level. But perhaps modern Americans would be less susceptible to the demands of authority. After all, the intervening years have seen the rise of the civil rights, peace, and gay rights movements, right? Not necessarily. Last month, Santa Clara University psychologist Jerry Burger reported the results of replicating Milgram’s experiment. He excluded people who had heard of the original experiments and found that the average rate of obedience remained the same at around 65 percent. In addition, there was no difference between men and women.

In 1965, Milgram wrote, “With numbing regularity good people were seen to knuckle under the demands of authority and perform actions that were callous and severe. Men who are in everyday life responsible and decent were seduced by the trappings of authority, by the control of their perceptions, and by the uncritical acceptance of the experimenter’s definition of the situation, into performing harsh acts.” In 1979, Milgram’s judgement was more severe: “If a system of death camps were set up in the United States of the sort we had seen in Nazi Germany, one would be able to find sufficient personnel for those camps in any medium-sized American town.”

But can it really happen here? It’s a giant step from a Yale psychology lab to Auschwitz and the Gulag. What Milgram showed was that ordinary people are deferential to authority figures in laboratory settings. The exact nature of the authority wielded by experimenters is controversial, but it seems based on both perceived legitimacy and expertise. It doesn’t take too much imagination to think that even more people would have gone all the way to 450-volts if the experimenter had the power to punish disobedience. Leaders of governments, militaries, religions, corporations, universities, and gangs all arguably exercise these types of authority. Hierarchy is a universal feature of human societies.

As obedience experiments show, Americans are not really any better at resisting the claims of authority than other people, yet there was no Gulag and no Auschwitz here. True, there was the immense moral evil of slavery, the destruction of Native Americans,Woodrow Wilson’s imprisonment of thousands of dissidents, Franklin Roosevelt’s internment of Japanese Americans, and more recently, the Abu Ghraib cruelties. Leaders at all levels can persuade some Americans to participate in immoral activities. However, the arc of American history has been toward correcting old evils and the commissioning of fewer atrocities over time. Why? Because our institutions of freedom have maintained and expanded the norms that limit the powers wielded by authorities.

For example, a free press is able to criticize practices like slavery and racial discrimination and help establish new norms. If Bill and Joanne down the street send their kids Joe and Kathy to an ethnically mixed school, in other words, it must be OK. In addition, American governmental powers are fragmented and in competition with one another. As another Milgram experiment showed, if two experimenters disagreed about continuing the experiment, the majority of participants sided with the one who argued for stopping it. In other words, when people could refer to an authority figure who agreed with their moral views, they were much more likely to act on them. Similarly, dividing up governmental power increases the chances that some authorities will act ethically and thus inspire people to act on the dictates of their consciences.

Milgram didn’t really explore why it was that Germans created death camps while Americans did not. The answer is liberty. In 1974, Milgram more generously noted, “It is not so much the kind of person a man is as the kind of situation in which he finds himself that determines how he will act.” Americans have not escaped the natural human tendency to defer to authority. Instead, we have had the good fortune to find ourselves in the situation where our social institutions have traditionally limited what authorities can get away with. The institutions of liberty are what enable people to act on what Lincoln called, “the better angels of our nature.”

Well, this is what occurred to me as I watched the program: this shocking experiment could easily be rephrased as a measurement of one’s commitment to liberalism.

Why would I say that?

Which political ideology WANTS a state possessing limitless power (see here and here for examples)?  Which ideology is only too über-willing to commit itself to every new pseudo-scientific trend that appears under the sun?  Which ideology is constantly trying to expand the role and power of government to have the ability to shape and control peoples’ lives?  Which ideology has the frightening tendency to worship its leaders in what I argue is a shockingly similar to the adoration that the German people accorded to their Führer?

Let me begin with my last question first: let’s consider the Obama worship that I argue conservatives would NEVER have applied to George W. Bush.

If you’re a liberal and you want to deny or rebut my premise, YOU SHOW ME REPUBLICANS DOING CRAP LIKE THIS FOR THEIR MESSIAH PRESIDENT GEORGE DUBYA BUSH (see also here):

That ought to terrify the hell out of you almost as much as the Milgram experiment.

You show me garbage like this:

You show me this:

You show me government school teachers indoctrinating precious American schoolchildren (including REPUBLICAN PARENTS’ children) like this:

And of course this liberal propaganda-in-public-school crap goes on ALL the time, as government and union teachers exploit their positions as opportunities to try to indoctrinate, as we again recently saw.  Leftwing political meddling in the guise of “education” goes on all the time because the essence of the left is fascist propaganda.

You show me a famous conservative celebrity saying stuff like this about George Dubya:

Spike Lee: “It means that this is a whole new world. I think…I’ve been saying this before. You can divide history. BB Before Barack. AB After Barack.”

Barack Obama – a future president of the United States of America – not only attended but actually helped ORGANIZE the Louis Farrakhan-organized Million Man March.  I’d say that combined with the fact that liberals themselves claim that a million men attended that march is more than enough to acclaim Farrakhan as a major liberal religious figure.  So you show me an equally powerful CONSERVATIVE religious figure saying similar stuff about George Dubya Bush that Farrakhan said about Obama:

You are the instruments that God is gonna use to bring about universal change, and that is why Barack has captured the youth. And he has involved young people in a political process that they didn’t care anything about. That’s a sign. When the Messiah speaks, the youth will hear, and the Messiah is absolutely speaking.”  

I’d like to see rightwing conservative media figures appearing on rightwing news sources such as Fox News or the Wall Street Journal the way Newsweek editor Evan Thomas appeared on MSNBC to say something like this about George Dubya Bush:

I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God.”

Obama himself is allowed to blatantly swim in this Obama worship:

You show me the mainstream media smiling happily while George Bush claimed, “There are no red states or blue states, just BUSH states.”  You show me that.

There is a worship of Barack Obama from the left – even after the years of abject failure – that we never saw coming from the right for George W. Bush.  Not only would the mainstream media – which is overwhelmingly dominated by liberalism which dives into ideological propaganda – never allow this, but conservatives themselves are simply not the kind of people who would so blatantly succumb to messiah-worship from its political leaders no matter how much we might respect a Ronald Reagan or a Margaret Thatcher.  It’s just not in our DNA.

It sure is in the DNA of the left.

I also asked, “Which ideology is only too über-willing to commit itself to every new pseudo-scientific trend that appears under the sun?”  I think of global warming that got morphed into the even more nebulous category of “climate change” and the answer is again blatantly obvious: it is the essence of the left to take the marching orders coming from the white coats while we conservatives are shaking our heads in skepticism and dismay at all the liberal “sheeple.”

I’ve written numerous articles on the legitimate issues casting doubt on global warming.  Consider facts such as: 1) the history of planet earth is a history of climate change and huge swings in climate; 2) we have seen even larger episodes of “global warming” on the planets in our solar system – none of which have SUVs driving around on them – than we see on our own planet earth; 3) the “science” of global warming has been warped with mindbogling acts of fraud and shocking manipulation of data; 4) not only is there no “consensus” about “global warming” but in fact increasing numbers of scientists are outright hostile about “‘decarbonizing’ the world’s economy”; and 5) in spite of all evidence to the contrary, the United Nations is demanding $76 TRILLION in what amounts to pure socialist redistributionism to “save the planet” from “climate change.”

I just learned that the Old Kingdom of Egypt began as a result of an enormous climate shift in which Northern Africa went from a verdant and fertile land to a desert while the Nile began to bloom (4000 BC) and collapsed as a result of massive climate change in which the Nile transformed from lush farmland into dust.  And nobody was driving SUVs, were they???  Just as nobody is driving SUVs on Mars.

The fact of the matter is that it was never anything more than a completely artificial and arbitrary decision to blame manmade CO2 – which constitutes such a tiny infinitesimal fraction of the actual global warming gasses it is unreal – for all of our current climate change.  When manmade CO2 very obviously never had ANYTHING WHATSOEVER to do with all the myriad episodes of climate change that have characterized the history of planet earth from time immemorial ever before.

But liberals swear up and down that we must spend at least $76 trillion to fight the manmade CO2 bogeyman regardless.

And the conclusions of the left as to what we need to do to billions of human beings to deal with this bogeyman are themselves so shocking they made the brutal results of the  Milgram Experiment look like the warm fuzzies:

“My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.” – Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

Mankind is the most dangerous, destructive, selfish and unethical animal on the earth.”
- Michael Fox, vice-president of The Humane Society

Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs.”
- John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal

Humans on the Earth behave in some ways like a pathogenic micro-organism, or like the cells of a tumor.”
- Sir James Lovelock, Healing Gaia

The Earth has cancer and the cancer is Man.”
- Club of Rome, Mankind at the Turning Point

A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living would be 1 billion. At the more frugal European standard of living, 2 to 3 billion would be possible.”
- United Nations, Global Biodiversity Assessment

A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.”
- Prof Paul Ehrlich, The Population Bomb

A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”
- Ted Turner, founder of CNN and major UN donor [and major DEMOCRAT PARTY DONOR]

Hitler wanted to exterminate Jews and other “racial inferiors.”  But for the liberals in global warming establishment of today, NEARLY THE ENTIRE HUMAN RACE IS THE NEW “JEW” TO BE VIEWED AS A DANGER TO BE EXTERMINATED.

Please don’t think for a nanosecond that these people wouldn’t gladly up your voltage when they electroshock you to death.  AND THEY ARE LIBERALS, LIBERALS, LIBERALS!!!

You can look at my articles and see the mindset of the left: how DARE you be against global warming!  The guys in the white coats tell me to believe it and if they tell me to turn that knob and deliver a fatal dose of electricity then the only reasonable thing to do is turn that damn knob and push that damn button!!!

Just a few days ago we larned that the arctic sea ice is the thickest it has been in more than a decade:

Heavy ice could delay start of Shell Alaska’s Arctic drilling
May 28, 2012
The heaviest polar ice in more than a decade could postpone the start of offshore oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean until the beginning of August, a delay of up to two weeks, Shell Alaska officials said.

Unveiling a newly refurbished ice-class rig that is poised to begin drilling two exploratory wells this summer in the , Shell executives said Friday that the unusually robust sea ice would further narrow what already is a tight window for operations. The company’s $4-billion program is designed to measure the extent of what could be the United States’ most important new inventory of oil and gas. [...]

“We’re seeing multiyear ice that they’ve not seen in such large quantities in over a decade, and it could impact our ability to start the well,” Slaiby said. Of particular concern, he said, is the region of the Chukchi Sea around the company’s Berger Prospect – potentially the crown jewel of the company’s offshore oil inventory – which in normal years would be accessible by mid-July. This year, it may be unreachable until late July or early August. [...]

Compare that to the dire warnings just five years ago from the left that there would be NO arctic ice by now:

Arctic Sea Ice Gone in Summer Within Five Years?
Seth Borenstein in Washington
Associated Press
December 12, 2007

An already relentless melting of the Arctic greatly accelerated this summer—a sign that some scientists worry could mean global warming has passed an ominous tipping point.
 
One scientist even speculated that summer sea ice could be gone in five years. [...]

“The Arctic is screaming,” said Mark Serreze, senior scientist at the government’s snow and ice data center in Boulder, Colorado.  [...]

That’s an Associated Press screech that was re-screeched by National Geographic.

On the one hand you have actual facts and reality and legitimate science and on the other hand you have the Associated Press, National Geographic and “senior government scientists” PUTTING THEIR EARS TO THE ICE AND CLAIMING TO HEAR IT SCREAMING.

I frankly don’t give a damn how many diplomas are on these fools’ walls.  They have abandoned “science” in favor of a fanatic religious committment.  And they will use the raw, naked power of government force and – if they get their way – exterminate human beings by the BILLIONS to force the world to bow down before their global warming gods.

Global warming has been utterly refuted and the motives and methods of its white-coated priests have been discredited time and time again.  But these people – liberals – cannot even theoretically ever possibly be proven wrong to their satisfaction.  And that is only because they have a worldview that is totally divorced from reality.

Liberals are now beginning to admit that the ethanol that they imposed on America wasn’t such a good idea, after all.  Even Al Gore said he was wrong about that little doozy.  Who would have guessed that burning food for fuel might possibly contribute to hunger?  But that doesn’t matter, so never mind; they’ve moved on to DIFFERENT energy boondoggles to demagogue and are screeching even more loudly about them than they screeched while imposing ethanol.

And this love of death and complete fanatic insanity that today’s liberalism has embraced isn’t new.  We can go back to Darwinism and eugenics – and the Holocaust was nothing more than applied Darwinism – and see a history of liberalism, liberalism, liberalism.

Margaret Sanger – Hillary Clinton’s personal hero – was all about killing as many black babies as she could.

Given that Hillary Clinton is one of the über heroine’s of the mainstream left, let’s consider what Hillary Clinton’s own heroine said in her own words:

On large families:
“The most merciful thing that a large family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.” (Women and the New Race, Eugenics Publ. Co., 1920, 1923)

On blacks, immigrants and indigents:
“…human weeds,’ ‘reckless breeders,’ ‘spawning… human beings who never should have been born.” Margaret Sanger, Pivot of Civilization, referring to immigrants and poor people

On sterilization & racial purification:
Sanger believed that, for the purpose of racial “purification,” couples should be rewarded who chose sterilization. Birth Control in America, The Career of Margaret Sanger, by David Kennedy, p. 117, quoting a 1923 Sanger speech.

On the right of married couples to bear children:
Couples should be required to submit applications to have a child, she wrote in her “Plan for Peace.” Birth Control Review, April 1932

On the purpose of birth control:
The purpose in promoting birth control was “to create a race of thoroughbreds,” she wrote in the Birth Control Review, Nov. 1921 (p. 2)

On the rights of the handicapped and mentally ill, and racial minorities:
“More children from the fit, less from the unfit — that is the chief aim of birth control.” Birth Control Review, May 1919, p. 12

On the extermination of blacks:
We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population,” she said, “if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members.” Woman’s Body, Woman’s Right: A Social History of Birth Control in America, by Linda Gordon

Margaret Sanger had other things to say, too.  About the birth control that the left wants (Sanger said it would lead to a “cleaner race”); about sterilization (“to prevent multiplication of this bad stock”); about hell on earth which she demonically believed was a Utopia.

I don’t believe I have to say a further word about how genuinely EVIL this hero of liberalism, who was not only a Nazi sympathizer but whose work was cited as justification for the Nazis’ own extermination program, truly was.  Her own volume of words and her entire life’s work betray her.

The Planned Parenthood that Margaret Sanger founded continues to be THE darling of liberalism.  This organization of pure hate continues to “exterminate” black babies and locates 80% of its clinics to ensure that black women continue to self-eradicate two out of three of their black babies.  And we just learned that Planned Parenthood is perfectly willing to wipe out another “inferior” – women.

A.C.O.R.N., yet another liberal darling, was revealed to be all-too willing to accept donations specifically earmarked for the purpose of specifically killing black babies.

As I previously stated above, liberals are absolutely immunized from accepting reality.  Liberals are morally insane, regardless of their color, gender or professed creed.  That is why black liberals continue to support the ideology that is wiping out blacks in a genocide that surpasses the Holocaust and female liberals and female liberals continue to rabidly support a party that will not condemn killing female babies as women pursue their “right” to sex-selective as well as race-selective abortions.

Barack Obama, himself the object of fanatic liberal worship, may best exemplify my point: this man who once demonized George Bush as a warmonger while repeatedly embracing a fantastically unrealistic view toward terrorism (not “terrorism” but “man-caused disasters; not the war on terror but the “overseas contingency operation”) while idiotically vowing to close Gitmo within a year of his assuming the presidency (see also here), this man whose foreign policy was frankly best captured by terms such as “unicorns” and “fairy dust,” is now personally pouring over “baseball card”-style “kill lists” to lift his thumb up or down like an emperor deciding who should live and who should die.  Were it George Bush doing this, the left would have screamed that this was CLEARLY the act of a fascist Nazi stormtrooper monster.  But it’s Obama lifting his thumb up or down like some deranged Roman emperor deciding who lives and who dies with his political advisor sitting in the room, so it’s A-okay.

For the record, Barack Obama just failed his very own Milgram experiment by the very standard that he himself assumed the presidency espousing.

Liberal Democrats Demand ‘We Should Acknowledge The Existence of Good Pedophiles.’ When There’s Not Even Such A Thing As The Existence Of A Good DEMOCRAT.

May 5, 2012

You just can’t get any lower than liberalism.  Every whale turd has tried … and failed:

Dan Savage “We Should Acknowledge The Existence of Good Pedophiles”
Posted by F.R Newbrough on April 30, 2012 at 12:30am

There has been considerable controversy over recent comments by Dan Savage, a radical gay rights activist, when he said “we can learn to ignore the bulls–t in the bible..” The YouTube video of the event is below so you can watch it yourself. However this is not the first or the worst or most radical of this man’s hateful outbursts. He is also very outspoken on issues such as pedophilia. 

One of many examples is a column where he wrote that “we need to acknowledge the existence of good pedophiles”.

This link is to an advice column from Feb 2, 2010 where he states his long-standing sympathies for pedophiles.

I’m not going to go any further than that because the man’s ugly vulgar and obscene history is readily available online but of course the msm doesn’t seem to care what this man says or does because they didn’t even notice or rather were not shocked when he and his and his partner Terry Miller were invited to the White House by the Obama administration for a June 29,2011 “Pride Reception”.

Does this mean President Obama’s positions on Pedophilia have also evolved?

UPDATE:

Here are a couple detailed filled links courtesy of Ben Shapiro:

Dan Savage: “I Wish Republicans Were All F***ing Dead.’”

Dan Savage: “Justice Scalia Is A ‘C***sucker.’”

It is important to understand that NAMBLA – the North American Man-Boy Love Association, and the essence of which was PEDOPHILIA – was once a part of the homosexual International Lesbian and Gay Association and once a part of the United Nations until cynical political expediency caused them to be removed.  And liberal Democrats like Dan Savage have been trying to undo that politically convenient albeit cynical and hypocritical disconnect (that according to the left’s own moral “logic”) ever since.

Here are the words of a Democrat – who has been invited to the Obama White House and everything – that all Democrats ought to be as proud of as Obama was of him:

‘Let’s Say I’m A Pedophile’
By Dan Savage |Posted Feb. 2, 2010

Let’s say, theoretically, I’m a pedophile.

I’m not stupid or evil, so I’m not gonna do anything. I’m not even gonna look at porn. I don’t even look at kids in public, and anyone of whatever orientation who’s been to a crowded beach knows how hard that can be.

So what the fuck should I do? Chemical castration? But I haven’t DONE anything and I don’t plan to. Am I obliged to tell anyone? Good way to lose friends and get the shit kicked out of me. Can I keep babysitting my friends’ kids when they need a hand? After all, if I were into adult women, people wouldn’t see anything wrong with leaving me alone with a couple of those.

My sex drive was put together wrong, Dan. What the fuck do I do? Live alone and hope Japan starts producing affordable sexbots before I’m too old to care?

You know, theoretically. If I were a pedophile.

Knows It’s Wrong

“My heart goes out to people to whom nature has given something as powerful and as distracting as a sex drive and no healthy way to express it,” says Dr. James Cantor, a psychologist and the editor in chief of the research journal Sexual Abuse. “Pedophiles are not the only folks in this position, but they are by far the most demonized, regardless of whether they have ever actually caused anyone any kind of harm.”

My heart is going out to you, too, KIW. As I’ve written before, we should acknowledge the existence of “good pedophiles,” who are burdened with a sexual interest in children but who possess the moral sense to resist acting on that interest. It’s a lifelong struggle for “good pedophiles,” and most manage to succeed without any emotional support—to say nothing of credit—whatsoever.

Unfortunately, science doesn’t know much about pedophiles like you, pedophiles who haven’t done anything, because the social stigma is so great that most nonoffending pedophiles never seek treatment. And what research has been done, says Cantor, isn’t very encouraging if you’re looking to free yourself from your attraction to children.

“There is no known way of turning a pedophile into a nonpedophile,” says Cantor. “The best we can do is help a person maximize their self-control and to help them build an otherwise happy and productive life.”

The psychotherapies that are available, says Cantor, “were designed to assist people who have already committed an offense. These therapies have less to provide to people who already have the skills and drive to keep themselves from ‘acting out.’” Your best option, according to Cantor, may be the one you’re clearly not too enthused about: “Castration, both chemical and physical,” says Cantor, “can indeed be used to eliminate or take the edge off one’s sex drive.”

“Nonoffender pedophiles have told me that chemical castration has given them relief,” Cantor adds. “So it’s unfortunate that we use the term ‘chemical castration,’ which evokes all kinds of emotions. When you get right down to it, we are talking only about taking the same medication used by, for example, prostate-cancer patients—some cancers are accelerated by testosterone, so blocking testosterone is part of the treatment.”

And as for babysitting …

“It is true that a regular, heterosexual man is not going to commit an offense against every woman he finds attractive; however, most women are capable of recognizing when an interaction is starting to go south. Most children are not. So although there is every reason to believe that there exist cats that can successfully be in charge of the canary, it’s not a good idea for the cat to be the one making that call.”

So no babysitting for you, KIW—to protect the kids, first and foremost, but yourself as well. If it ever comes out that you are a pedophile and you were in the habit of babysitting-without-touching, your friends are unlikely to take your protestations—you’ve never touched a child—at face value.

“I wish I had better news,” concludes Cantor. “I also wish that more people did good research on this so that one day I could have better news to give.”

One of the reasons given for the nomination of Pope John Paul II for sainthood is that he “whipped himself with a belt, even on vacation,” according to a new book. If that’s what it takes, why isn’t David Carradine a saint? What is the link between Catholicism and sadomasochism? As a former seminarian, perhaps you can explain this.

When Holiness Is Painful

First, I was in the preparatory seminary—a high school for boys considering the priesthood—not a full-blown seminary, WHIP. (I stopped considering the priesthood when it dawned on me that I could still wear dresses, fuck boys, and live in a big house filled with Catholic kitsch without becoming a priest.)

Good for you, Dan Savage: you despise Jesus Christ and Christianity and the Catholic Church as much as your Democrat Party and your war-on-religion president.

You’ve got to start somewhere, so follow the path of societal acceptance for depraved behavior the way the left has ALWAYS done it before: demand that they be viewed as “human just like everyone else” and demand that they be accorded rights and respect.  THEN you later demand that since they’re decent, respectable people their vile behavior can’t be viewed as vile anymore.  It’s been part of their playbook over and over again and it worked which is why America and Western Europe is so astonishingly morally-velocitized with behavior that was utterly unacceptable just a generation ago being openly celebrated now.  So let’s “Play it again, Sam” with pedophiles.

We’re told over and over again that it is a “scientific fact” that homosexuals are born gay and therefore it’s clearly okay to be gay.

Well, if you’re born gay, you’re born pedophile too.  And therefore it’s okay to sodomize your little Johnny while you’re not looking.  And what if little Johnny wants to be sodomized?   And it is not one iota less okay to be a pedophile than it is to be gay.  Because the exact same justification for the one justifies the other.

For the factual record, Barack Obama is publicly on the record supporting the sodomy of children in his czar selections.  The very same Obama who said, ” “Judge me by the people with whom I surround myself” surrounded himself with a czar who openly promotes homosexuality in public schools and smiled down at a boy who told him he was being sexually molested by an older man.

Don’t you think for one nano-second that this incredibly vile and blatantly evil idea of promoting pedophilia is not right now at the heart of the Democrat Party today.

But you need to understand something: it’s not just pedophiles who ought to be demanding societal embrace and acceptance on the basis of liberal presuppositions.  Because the same evidence that allegedly justifies that people are “born gay” likewise justifies that people are born violent:

The Violence Gene
Impulsive aggression can be inherited.
by Victor Limjoco
published online April 14, 2006

With swelling prison populations, researchers are trying to understand the biology behind aggressive behavior. National Institute of Mental Health scientist Andreas Meyer-Lindenberg is looking for clues to how genes wire our brains early in life.

“One of the most fascinating things,” Meyer-Lindenberg says, about this field of science called psychiatric genetics, “is how it is possible that genes [can] encode for molecules that affect something as complex as behavior, even psychiatric illness such as depression and social behavior.”

He’s focusing on a specific gene that was previously linked to impulsive violence. A study in 2002 found that subjects with a particular form of a gene had a significantly higher risk of violence, but only in certain populations.

Genes can affect complex behaviors like aggression, because they direct the production of proteins – the building blocks of living systems. Certain types of proteins, called enzymes, break down chemicals in the brain, most notably, serotonin – a chemical messenger in the brain that helps brains cells communicate to each other.

To isolate how a variation in this gene, called the L version of MAO-A, might affect the wiring of the brain, Meyer-Lindenberg took MRI brain scans of more than 100 healthy volunteers. Since this genetic variation is common in our population, some of the volunteers had this variation, and some didn’t.

He showed them pictures of angry and fearful faces and other disturbing images, like those of an angry dog or of a gun pointed towards the screen. 

As he wrote in “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences” those with the aggression-related form of the gene responded to the pictures with increased activity in the amygdala – the brain area that detects danger, but less activity in the cingulate cortex – the brain region that is believed to control aggression.

These brain patterns have been linked to impulsive violence, but Meyer-Lindenberg cautions in his paper, ” …because our sample was psychiatrically normal, the variation observed is clearly compatible with normal mental health and does not imply or suggest increased risk for violence in our sample.” 

There are many possible factors at work, he says, and violence is an extremely complex behavior. “Whether or not any given person in any given situation will become violent is known to be almost impossible to predict.”

But the findings are still significant, Meyer-Lindenberg says, because, ” …it gives us a handle for the first time into a genetic risk for violence.”

And so when I finally lose it and grab my baseball bat and beat every liberal I come across to a violent and gory death, you liberals had damned well better smile tolerantly and say, “I’m so happy that you’re finally free to express your true self.”  And don’t you ever forget that you can’t blame a person for violent behavior any more than you can blame that homosexual.

I’ll bet that the same research proves that babies have a genetic predisposition to be aborted, too.

Unless you possess something called moral common sense – but that would automatically exclude you from being a Democrat, wouldn’t it?

For the record, I don’t doubt that people have genetic predispositions to crappy behaviors BECAUSE I’M A CHRISTIAN WHO READS HIS BIBLE AND READ ABOUT THE FALL OF MAN INTO SIN.  But I also know that the same God who created us created us in His image.  And part of the essence of the Imago Dei is personal freedom and personal responsibility.  Maybe I was born with the deck stacked against me in some way or ways; but I guarantee you that somebody else was born with that same deck stacked even worse against him or her – and that person triumphed over that and a lot of other hereditary obstacles.

Atheists, secular humanists, scientific materialists and liberals cannot comprehend that humans actually have something called free will and can and should be held accountable for their attitudes and actions.  They’re wrong and literally destroy their very own arguments in being wrong:

But it should be pointed out that consistent atheism, which represents itself to be the most rational and logical of all approaches to reality, is in actuality completely self-defeating and incapable of logical defense. That is to say, if indeed all matter has combined by mere chance, unguided by any Higher Power of Transcendental Intelligence, then it necessarily follows that the molecules of the human brain are also the product of mere chance. In other words, we think the way we do simply because the atoms and molecules of our brain tissue happen to have combined in the way they have, totally without transcendental guidance or control. So then even the philosophies of men, their system of logic and all their approaches to reality are the result of mere fortuity. There is no absolute validity to any argument advanced by the atheist against the position of theism.

On the basis of his own presuppositions, the atheist completely cancels himself out, for on his own premises his arguments are without any absolute validity. By his own confession he thinks the way he does simply because the atoms in his brain happen to combine the way they do. If this is so, he cannot honestly say that his view is any more valid than the contrary view of his opponent. His basic postulates are self-contradictory and self-defeating; for when he asserts that there are no absolutes, he thereby is asserting a very dogmatic absolute. Nor can he logically disprove the existence of God without resorting to a logic that depends on the existence of God for its validity. Apart from such a transcendent guarantor of the validity of logic, any attempts at logic or argumentation are simply manifestations of the behavior of the collocation of molecules that make up the thinker’s brain. — Gleason Archer, Encyclopedia of Bible Difficulties, pp. 55-56

I simply point out to liberals that MY brain was the product of an intelligent designer and is fearfully and wonderfully made, whereas YOUR brain is the random agglomeration of molecules that happened to come together for no particular reason and I should therefore trust my opinions a lot more than I trust yours.

Liberals – be they political or theological (they’re invariably the same people, for what it’s worth) – have abandoned so many truths that it is becoming increasingly impossible for them to comprehend ANY truth at all.  And that’s why we’re seeing more and more craven jackasses like Dan Savage crawling out of the left.

The Bible describes the progression into total depravity:

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.  For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities–his eternal power and divine nature–have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.  For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.  Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.  Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.  They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator–who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.  In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.  Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. – Romans 1:18-28

And so we have the map of the degeneration of man from the Imago Dei to Democrat.

Why would I say that?

Consider the passage about exchanging the worship of a Creator God for “nature” and read the following quotes from the left:

“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsiblity to bring that about?”
 - Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Programme

“A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.”
- Paul Ehrlich, Professor of Population Studies

“The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.”
- Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund

“Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.”
- Professor Maurice King

“We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land.”
- David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

“Complex technology of any sort is an assault on human dignity. It would be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy, because of what we might do with it.”
- Amory Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute

“The prospect of cheap fusion energy is the worst thing that could happen to the planet.”
- Jeremy Rifkin, Greenhouse Crisis Foundation

“Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced — a major shift in the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources. This shift will demand that a concern for the environmental consequences of every human action be integrated into individual and collective decision-making at every level.”
- UN Agenda 21

The essence of their agenda is profoundly anti-God and anti-man:

“The common enemy of humanity is man.  In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome.  The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”
- Club of Rome, premier environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations

“It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.”
- Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace

“We are on the verge of a global transformation.  All we need is the right major crisis…”
- David Rockefeller, Club of Rome executive member

“The goal now is a socialist, redistributionist society, which is nature’s proper steward and society’s only hope.”
- David Brower, founder of Friends of the Earth

“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse?  Isn’t it our responsiblity to bring that about?”
- Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Programme

“A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.”
- Paul Ehrlich, Professor of Population Studies

“Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.”
- Professor Maurice King

“Complex technology of any sort is an assault on human dignity. It would be little short of disastrous for us to discover a source of clean, cheap, abundant energy, because of what we might do with it.”
- Amory Lovins, Rocky Mountain Institute

“The prospect of cheap fusion energy is the worst thing that could happen to the planet.”
- Jeremy Rifkin, Greenhouse Crisis Foundation
“The big threat to the planet is people: there are too many, doing too well economically and burning too much oil.”
– Sir James Lovelock, BBC Interview

And as a result of their worship of the creature rather than the Creator, the left despises the capstone of God’s creation – man himself:

“My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.”  – Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

“Mankind is the most dangerous, destructive, selfish and unethical animal on the earth.”
- Michael Fox, vice-president of The Humane Society

“Human beings, as a species, have no more value than slugs.”
- John Davis, editor of Earth First! Journal

“Humans on the Earth behave in some ways like a pathogenic micro-organism, or like the cells of a tumor.”
- Sir James Lovelock, Healing Gaia

“The Earth has cancer and the cancer is Man.”
- Club of Rome, Mankind at the Turning Point

“A reasonable estimate for an industrialized world society at the present North American material standard of living  would be 1 billion. At the more frugal European standard of living, 2 to 3 billion would be possible.”
- United Nations, Global Biodiversity Assessment

“A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells;  the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people.  We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.”
- Prof Paul Ehrlich, The Population Bomb

“A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”
- Ted Turner, founder of CNN and major UN donor [and major DEMOCRAT PARTY DONOR]

I believe I have amply established that if you look at the left, you look at the heart of evil and the bottom “whale-crap” level of depravity as set forth by the Word of God in Romans chapter one.

Democrats are 100% responsible for the murder of FIFTY-FOUR MILLION innocent human beings through the abortion mills that they and they alone champion.  The shocking moral crimes of the Democrat Party dwarf even Adolf Hitler’s.  And Democrats who think that they aren’t responsible for that slaughter because they don’t believe developing children in the womb are human beings are going to be every bit as surprised as the Nazis who will be shocked to find out that JEWS are actually human beings.

And in their very own words they are literally out to exterminate at least half and as many as 95% of all the human beings who are living on planet earth right now.

When God said, “all those who hate Me love death” in His Word (Proverbs 8:36), He knew in His divine foreknowledge that the Democrat Party was coming in the last days.

You might be a Democrat saying, “I don’t support any of this crap.”  I point out that you are in fact a liar and a fool: BECAUSE THE DEMOCRAT PARTY LEADERSHIP THAT YOU HAVE KEPT IN POWER DOES.  And when you vote Democrat, you vote for the hellish leadership and the hellish agenda of the Democrat Party.  And you will one day be held to account. 

You read Romans chapter one and you see the complete degeneration of the human race into abject depravity and it reads “one day the Democrat Party will come.”  Because the radical environmentalism and the radical homosexual agenda that God warned about are the heart and soul of the Democrat Party today.  Isaiah 5:20 summed up the Democrat Party’s mindset in the words:

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!”

Micah 5:2 sets forth a similar warning – “You who hate good and love evil, Who tear off their skin from them And their flesh from their bones” – in words that ought to remind you of what happens to innocent babies during the horror of abortion.

Don’t think for a second that the words, “The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left,” don’t apply to modern liberals.

Let me warn you: the beast is coming.  I’ve warned about that soon-coming day many times on this blog.  The policies of the socialist left – and most certainly the policies of American Democrats – has dramatically increased the pace by which the beast is coming.  Soon the world economies will collapse, and the only question is whether that collapse will be led by socialist Europe imploding first or Obama’s God damn America imploding first.  In Europe, countries that barely even TRIED austerity as the only possible means to deal with their socialist-caused debt crisis are now demanding that they dive further into socialism – in effect saying the answer to solving the problem of crippling debt is to dramatically accelerate the rate of debt-spending.  France is poised to elect open socialists.  That is the way to hell, and the rest of the world will ultimately follow France into hell.  In the ruins that we can already see coming, just as we can already hear the coming hoofbeats of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse, there will emerge a man who will come to the rescue to save the world from the collapse that socialism created.  The left believes government is the only solution to the problems of man and society.  Essentially, they see big government as savior.  Worship of the state is their real religion.  And don’t mistake me: the Democrat Party in God damn America will gladly worship him and take his mark.  It won’t take long – only seven years – for every promise and every premise of the “global unity” that the left has been hungrily seeking to turn into total hell on earth.  And then every baby-murdering Antichrist-worshiping Democrat will get the eternity they sowed for themselves.

We live in an OWS/Occupy Movement versus Tea Party world.  And we can see that a growing number of people in America and around the world are getting ready to worship the beast.

Gasoline Prices Have Nearly DOUBLED In Just Three Years Of Failed Obama Presidency – Exactly As Conservatives (And Obama) SAID WOULD HAPPEN.

February 21, 2012

When we say that Democrats deserve all the demonization that they handed out, we meant it.

Let no one ever forget how Democrats – including Barack Obama – demonized Bush when gasoline prices went up:

What Ever Happened to All Those ‘Price-Gouging’ Investigations by Democrats?
by Wynton Hall

With gas prices now almost double what they were on the first day of President Barack Obama’s presidency, we’re left to wonder: what ever happened to all those “price gouging” investigations Democrats launched four years ago to relieve pain at the pump?

In 2006, Rep. Nancy Pelosi promised that Democrats would enact plans to bring down the price of gas. But as this GOP ad makes clear, that didn’t happen.

Then, with the presidential election heating up in May 2007, Rep. Nancy Pelosi rolled out the tried and true “blame Bush” tactic and said that high gas prices were the result of “the Bush Administration’s failure to enact a comprehensive energy strategy.” Furthermore, Rep. Pelosi said that the Democratic Congress would “take America in a new direction” and “make up for years of inaction” by Republicans. The San Francisco Congresswoman went on to tout the actions taken by the Democratic Congress within the first 100 hours of their taking power.

The day Rep. Pelosi made those comments, the national average price for a gallon of gas was $3.07. Today, in 2012, it’s $3.39 a gallon.

Rep. Pelosi, however, was not alone in promising to right the wrongs of the “two oil men in the Oval Office.” Then-candidate Barack Obama promised that, if he were elected president, gas prices would plunge because he would impose a “windfall profits tax” on any oil producer who sold oil above $80 a barrel. But no sooner did he win the presidency than did Mr. Obama ditch the proposal altogether, even going so far as to remove mention of it from his Transition Team’s website.

Of course, anyone who was paying careful attention in 2008 to then-candidate Barack Obama should hardly be surprised that energy prices have skyrocketed on his watch. After all, during the last presidential election, Mr. Obama admitted that he was perfectly aware that his own energy policies would result in skyrocketing prices–and that he was fine with that.

Indeed, Mr. Obama flatly stated that he preferred that gas prices rise–albeit “gradually”–in order to reduce American reliance on oil.

But the Democratic sound and fury over removing our pain at the pump signified nothing. With just 10 months until the 2012 presidential election, gas prices are almost twice what they were when that oil-loving meany George Bush left office.

Why? Because oil prices hinge on basic supply and demand, not a price-fixing conspiracy by George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and the owner of your local gas station, as many Democrats would have voters believe. To be sure, OPEC has an enormous influence on the price of a barrel of oil. But Energy Forum Director Amy Myers Jaffe of the Baker Institute for Public Policy at Rice University says that so-called price-gouging investigations are just a political shell game. “That’s just camouflage,” Ms. Jaffe told CNN. “That’s just ‘I want to pretend I’m doing something even, though I’m doing nothing.’”

With petroleum analysts now predicting that the price of a gallon of gas may well reach $4 a gallon by summer, Mr. Obama’s reelection hopes may rest on whether he can make manifest the promises he made four years ago to relieve America’s pain at the pump. If so, he better hurry. Summer gas prices will soon be here–and will further underscore Mr. Obama’s failure to make good on yet another campaign promise.

So with that record of Democrat demonization, let us just point out that these people deserve to get punched right in the mouth as nobody ever deserved to get punched right in the mouth.

Consider the following facts:

Gas prices are highest ever for a February
by Chris Kahn – Feb. 19, 2012 12:43 AM
Associated Press

NEW YORK - Gasoline prices have never been higher this time of the year.
 
At $3.53 a gallon, prices are already up 25 cents since Jan. 1. And experts say they could reach a record $4.25 a gallon by late April.
 
“You’re going to see a lot more staycations this year,” says Michael Lynch, president of Strategic Energy & Economic Research. “When the price gets anywhere near $4, you really see people react.”

Already, W. Howard Coudle, a retired machinist from Crestwood, Mo., has seen his monthly gasoline bill rise to $80 from about $60 in December. The closest service station is selling regular for $3.39 per gallon, the highest he’s ever seen.
 
“I guess we’re going to have to drive less, consolidate all our errands into one trip,” Coudle says. “It’s just oppressive.”

February follows January, of course, and according to an LA Times headline, January 2012 was similarly THE MOST EXPENSIVE JANUARY FOR GASOLINE IN AMERICAN HISTORY:

2012 begins with highest January gasoline prices ever

Well, let’s get in our time machine and go back to last year (2o11) and see how Obama fared in gas prices:

Gasoline prices were higher last year in America than they had EVER been:

U.S. drivers spend record amount on gasoline in 2011
Despite lower demand, more than $448 billion has been paid so far for fuel — $100 billion more than in 2010. Consistently high oil prices are blamed.
December 09, 2011|By Ronald D. White, Los Angeles Times

American drivers this week broke a record that will bring them no joy.

They collectively spent more than $448 billion on gasoline since the beginning of the year, according to the Oil Price Information Service, putting the previous record for gas expenditures — set in 2008 — in the rearview mirror with weeks of driving still to go.

It’s also a huge jump over last year, when U.S. drivers spent more than $100 billion less on gas.

The major reason for the record-setting gas spending in 2011 was that oil prices were consistently high all year. And that probably brought joy at the other end of the pipeline. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries is on pace to top $1 trillion in net oil exports for the first time, or 29% more than last year.

But suddenly the same mainstream media and the same Democrat Party that demonized George W. Bush every single day that gasoline prices were high say none of this catastrophically high gas price business can possibly be messiah Obama’s fault.  Even though I pointed out that this was all simply the stated fruition of Obama all along:

You remember that quip Obama gave us that under his policies, energy prices “would necessarily skyrocket“?

Remember that Obama appointed an energy secretary named Steven Chu who said, “Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe”??? With gasoline prices in Europe consistently hovering between $7 and $10 a gallon??? Steven Chu said that in explaining the Obama policy of “progressively” making gasoline more and more expensive in order to force Americans to turn to alternative energy sources. And one of the ways Obama wants to accomplish that dream (which amounts to a nightmare for working Americans) is to tax Americans for driving by the mile.

As you contemplate $4 and even $5 a gallon gasoline prices, let me just say one word: KEYSTONE.
