Computer models of climate change are wrong — Here’s why

Experience has shown that the climate stubbornly refuses to conform to what has been predicted by computer climate models.  I thought it was because the climate change alarmists were fudging the data, so its explained by the usual garbage in-garbage out formula.  It turns out because computers have their idiosyncrasies and because there are several…

The new 7% solution?

Seven percent (7%).  That’s the size of the electorate that wants more immigration. That 7% is so powerful it has captured the leadership of both Democrats and Republicans.  Democrat leaders want more immigration because they think all new immigrants will be poor, unskilled and best of all, politically ignorant.  They will therefore vote Democrat.  But…

Different opinions on Judge Hanen’s preliminary injunction on Obama amnesty

Obama’s executive amnesty grants work authorization, Social Security eligibility, and eligibility for important federal and state benefits to virtually all aliens who have been in the U.S. since 2010, had a baby in this country, and have not committed felonies. The Obama administration argued this is a routine application of “prosecutorial discretion”—the authority of executive…

Colorado being sued again over marijuana

From 1876 until 2012 Colorado was the Columbine State. In 2012 it became the Pot State. I’d like to see it return to its former honor. The change in 2012 happened largely with the help of millions of dollars from interests outside the state. Interests that care about their desire for getting stoned, not about…

Hysteria is the human condition

Over and over, bouts of hysteria have rocked people out of their senses. In America there were the Salem witch trials of the late 17th century, the rise of the KKK after the Civil War, Red Scare and Palmer Raids of 1919-1920, McCarthyism of the 1950’s, false allegations of child sexual abuse of the 1980s, and one…

On the Preliminary Injunction against Obama’s executive amnesty

The opinion by Judge Andrew Hanen of the Federal District Court in Texas, granting a preliminary injunction against implementing Obama’s executive amnesty, has been said to be a temporary order. It is that, because if the plaintiffs (State of Texas and 24 other states) don’t win at trial on the merits the injunction will be…

Making Chris Matthews look reasonable

It takes someone pretty dumb to make Chris Matthews look smart, but State Department Spokeswoman and “root causes” liberal Marie Harf did just that: She reminds me of the Denver City Councilwoman who said the answer to Black crime in the inner city was to find jobs for Black teenagers. She was suggesting that if…

Israel must be protected — here’s why

The Jewish world is contracting toward U.S., Israel Joel Kotkin, in the Orange County Register: Recent anti-Semitic events – from France and Belgium to Argentina – are accelerating the relentless shrinking of the Jewish Diaspora. Once spread virtually throughout the world, the Diaspora – the scattering of Jews after the fall of ancient Israel –…

Back to Nature?

Ahhh…yes. Getting back to nature, wouldn’t that be wonderful? Well no, actually. Life in a state of nature is, as Thomas Hobbs said: solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short. This video has been viewed 50 million times on Youtube since it was posted on 2011. It’s a 4-minute time lapse of a process that lasted…

Advice to Republicans in 2016

Mark Cunningham of the New York Post has advice for Republicans if they want to win in 2016, and beyond for that matter. He says they must remember the voters they forgot; the voters without which (history shows) Republicans cannot win: They’re the voters who didn’t come out for John McCain in 2008, and mostly…
