Craig Rucker Reports on Obama’s Junk Science Laundry List to the UN

from the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow:

Obama preaches junk science at UN
Professor Rossiter defects
Cal Thomas features the Depot

Glenn,

Yesterday President Obama presented a junk science laundry list to the UN General Assembly.

The President attributed naturally occurring floods, wildfires, hurricanes, drought and sea level rise to climate change, apparently ignorant of the fact that all of the above have been occurring at historically normal, to even below normal rates.

I wonder if President Obama knows that there has been no warming this century?

Dr. Caleb Rossiter, on the other hand, is a liberal Democrat who understands that science is science — no matter what your political persuasion.

Dr. Rossiter granted an exclusive interview to Marc Morano for CFACT’s Climate Hustle film project in which he told Marc:

“My blood simply boils too hot when I read the blather, daily, about climate catastrophe.”
“Obama has long been delusional on this issue.”

“Anyone who believes we are in a climate catastrophe I think is deluding themselves.”

For daring to present his findings about the climate, Professor Rossiter was booted out of a 23 year association with the Institute for Policy Studies. This is the kind of retaliation academics who speak honestly about the climate have come to expect. The global warming campaign is well aware of the chilling effect such actions have on the debate.

Marc has extensive excerpts from the interview and background at Climate Depot.

Cal Thomas has been following CFACT’s activities at the New York climate summit and cited Climate Depot’s reporting when he explained that the media has largely ignored the crazy, hard Left rhetoric that was everywhere on display at the “people’s climate march.” Watch now.

I’m proud of the work CFACT’s team has been doing in Manhattan.

The more people learn the facts about global warming, the less they accept it.

That is what the global warming propaganda machine fears most.

For nature and people too…….Craig Rucker

Truth Continues to Play No Role in ObamaTime Politics

Fellow conservative Minnesotan, Mark Waldeland, sent the following letter from the St. Paul Pioneer Press reviewing American leader Barack Obama’s influence upon shaping local Democrat Party dishonesty :

“Democrat political ads against Stuart Mills in his race against Rick Nolan contend that Mr. Mills should not be elected because his family worked hard, founded Mills Fleet Farm, a very successful business, and hired him at a salary of $500,000 per year. We can only assume that a successful family business and those that benefit from it are unfit for public office according to the Democrat mindset. Does the American dream matter?

Oh, and by the way, Sen Al Franken is worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $8 million and Gov. Dayton somewhere between $7 million and $77 million. Al Franken’s because he is a comic, and Mark Dayton’s because of his inheritance. The point is, is wealth, however obtained, a hindrance? Talking out of both sides of your mouth seems to fit the Democrat strategy.”

Lefty Unisex and Its New America Invade the Football Stadium

Marxist Unisexism is the newest variety of leftism infecting our once liberty-oriented America.

The human animal must be made equal in fact and mind, our Leftist Mother Superiors tell us. One goes to university, America’s lefty madrassas to be cleansed of competing thoughts and actions. Memories must be cleansed. America must be made to feel equally. Truth is as yesterday as yesterday’s male…..Obamaism, the disappearance of individual differences and sexual divisions is the new fashion.

Vote Democrat.

Habits of the past must be made unknown. It’s Obamaling time. Good citizens learn Obamawords and practice Obamatones. Feel and ye shall be saved. One sex fits all. One Party serves all. Throw your worries away.

I am old enough to remember American football as a masculine sport. My dad took me to my first football game in 1945. It was a college game, the University of Minnesota at home against the University of Nebraska. Home team scored often….winning 61-7. Dads’ wives often accompanied ticket holders.

The nation’s national anthem was sung at that Nebraska game as well as at every other game whether home or away. Folks actually sang words which then actually meant something. There was always a moment of reverence for country before the gladitorial battles on the field began. Even then, some thought it primitive. Whatever, it was then I fell in love with the sport despite my lack of ability to play it.

My son and I have been Viking season ticket holders for two decades. We have seen nearly everything football can provide except championships. We still buy tickets every year.

This year a star Viking player has been made to disappear from the team’s roster. Besides being a star player he seems to have been a good soul, yet he is a modern male arriving from a culture which most Minnesotans don’t yet quite understand. He is an unmarried father of many children of many mothers, rumors tell us fans. Someone charged that he spanked one of his offspring too unmotherly. Strange sagas, many violent, in our era of feminism, have become very popularly expressed in the news in our modern American world. The star was made to withdraw from public life as charged by rumor.

Strange too, is quantity of the ugliness that surrounds today’s football stadium before the professionals begin to play their game. Players these days possess skills of endurance, strength and speed, that are unbelievable….even magical. Players, up to this point in American political life, are still male. Human female animals are still limited to the sidelines to grunt as cheerleaders. The sport is the most popular in the country especially if your team is competitive….which almost all are on any given Sunday.

There is always ‘hope’.

Vikings have been losers for years, yet the lure of father and son together attending each home grounds professional football battle is very powerful, no matter how depressing the result.

What happens when ugliness reigns before the game begins, before each star shows his strengths on the field and coaches their abilities to maneuver their plots? Noise in greatest volume crushes anything musical. Piggishly clad human animals of all overweight sexes lineup at the gates to show off their fat. In that 1945 Minnesota-Nebraska college football game, that era of scarce dollars everywhere, man and woman and sons were neatly dressed. After all, going to a football game, was going “out” into public. One had to look their best.

All this is superficial, cosmetic, even I must agree. What about the soul, the being of today’s football fan who attends games? How do fans express themselves from the heart?…from the goodness of being an American? How do they sing the National Anthem?

At the 1945 football game and those university games throughout the 1960s and 1970s, fans sang loudly and distinctly the words to the National Anthem the best they could. It is a powerful, inspiring anthem.

The Vikings arrived from nowhere in the early 1960s. Even in the bitter cold of early winter, fans sang together their National Anthem with words they knew and seemed proud of.

All of that kind of expression disappeared at Viking games at least a decade ago. A new, more equally mundane America had arrived…..even at the professional football stadium.

For the past decade the National Anthem has been typically led in song by some junior high school teenie-bopper sing-alikes of all sexes and ages. No one in the audience follows this lead for they no longer know the words and are confused by the modernized childlike melody. This loss of fans singing focuses more attention upon the noises made by these junior high teenies of all ages and sexes singing the Anthem as a solo. No matter, nearly all in the audience applaud the tweety teenies of all ages and sexes when their noises finally end whether the singers themselves forgot the words or not.

The soloist at yesterday’s Viking-Atlanta game was definitely a guy, a quality guy who had played football at the University of Minnesota and as a professional. Yet, he twirled his solo as a teenie just like all those of all sexes soloing at games before him.

At the previous Viking home game, the opener of the season, still introductory to the game, the National Anthem was interrupted disrespectfully by three or four chutists descending from the clouds onto the football field. No one under age sixty knew the words anyway, some already drunk, so management must have thought it needed to spice up the National Anthem moment with a powerful distraction……from the heavens.

In teenie-bopper language of all sexes and ages….These days American culture sucks, folks.

Why Does the Human Animal View the Supreme God as Male ?

Over the past fifty years accompanying its devotion to atheism as their preferred religion, the world’s feminazi and feminist movements have been attacking, abusing, and denigrating the most humane, peace-oriented, and tolerance- inspiring religion, known to civilized ‘mankind’, American Christianity.

Many in this Christian faith, attendees of all sexes, have been snookered into believing the essentials of this mass movement as well. They learn their trade at today’s universities. Most human females are actually fond of security found in authoritarianism.

The feminazi and feminist movement flourishes by supplying that need, essentially a biological one, a drive the human female is born to carry. While the human male is born programmed to be curious, inquisitive, imaginative, to build, to protect and defend that which is ‘his’, whose soul is driven to value liberty in his pursuit of happiness, his human mate seeks security above all considerations to provide a “safe” haven for her children. It is the animal in us.

Feminists and their allies hate God being male.

In the ancient past, that is, time prior to the sex, druggie, and black racist violence and revolution of the 1960s on in our beloved America, inherent animal drives were fairly well understood and so, were obliged to be recognize in Western Culture….actually, throughout the ages of any culture. The human animal has always faced dangers to living and sought understanding through religion.

Today’s religion of the universities is Marxism, the collection of thought murmured and preached there designed to control and destroy knowledge in order to launch a mass movement to ensure world ‘peace’ and ‘equality’, conditions defined by elitists, authorities who graduate from Harvard, Columbia, and Princeton and such. Ye shall know them by their speech, by their habitual use and emphasis on the personal pronoun, I when describing policies, enforcement, matters of religion, and law to enforce Marxist living and dying.

It is because the human male animal is born curious, driven to think, to seek truth in order to understand, build, invent, and defend for the species to survive. Feminazis and feminists feel forever offended and so, have now turned to Marxism in America to counter truth with their drive for “feelings”. Feminists of all sexes ‘feel’ superior to human males by insisting feelings trump truth. When the human animal is made to be equal, that is unisexed , feminist peace and comfort will follow. At last, feminists will be able to rise to the top of the mountain, to determine, train, and execute all feelings necessary to mold and control proper equal citizen thinking and behavior.

Truth through knowledge is a threat to peace and equality, feminists insist. Freedom to absorb knowledge will cause some to be more aware, perhaps even smarter, more curious than others. How masculine can one become?

The human male animal used to be born a killer, and still is born to be a killer. The human female animal was born to be disinterested in being curious and assuming knowledge and remains born to be disinterested in assuming knowledge.

Yet, the human animal can be trained, acculturated to control somewhat their natural instincts if lessons, knowledge, and study are available. Nature is not easily overcome, however.

Man has kept record of the human past. It is possible that his record might be contrived, distorted against feminists. Many feminists insist histories of the human being must be discounted, ignored even, or rewritten with feminist guidance.

Although it is human to become unproductive and irrational, especially in today’s neoMarxist feminized ditsy America, inventing, discovering, imagining, building, protecting, hunting still thrives in the human male world. It’s in his genes.

Human-animal life is borne by its females…..and by instinct, protected by its males. In some honorable neighborhoods, even in modern America both the mother and father role are still considered ‘sacred’.

Herein enters the eternal spirit of “God”.

According to recorded past, there have been countless gods of one thing or another……and many goddesses, some more powerful in their duties and abilities than others. In every instance THE God of gods and goddesses is male, however. Why?

It is the MALE of the human animal programmed by God to protect his mate…..the Mother of his off spring required for the continued existence of the species…..a simple genetic drive to continue human life.

Without male protection the human species would never been able to survive.

It is the ‘he’ who bears the strength, the killer instinct, the protecting, and the inventing needed to preserve human life while competing in a dangerous and competitive world. The ‘she’ hasn’t been dealt similar matter for similar duties. She is a carer and an organizer…..yearning for security, not liberty.

Feminists in America are Democrat Party activists.

But, God, the Supreme, is a male…… It is rational to think and believe so.

Hirsi Ali Goes to Yale

Despite the universality of peril here in the year of our Lord, 2014, a Saint has arrived upon the planet. “It” is not a he, nor is “It a Western Culture female masculinized by the world feminist harpies.

IT is a SHE…..Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a saintly woman unmatched in the year, 2014, a body of mind and courage arriving at last upon our troubled American shores. This SHE has been academically isolated, shunned and blasphemed, by Marxist fascists of our time and place.

Authentic Saints blessed in history have had to endure suffering as a right of passage. Due to peace and plenty, America has matured somewhere between few and no Saints throughout its history until the administration of government introduced by Obamaling Marxists and feminazis.

Saint Ayaan Spoke at Philistine Yale Recently:

The following article from the Weekly Standard was sent by Mark Waldeland:

ALLAH AND WOMAN AT YALE by Daniel Gelertner

Hirsi Ali associates the rise of Islamic terrorism with the rise of the first group. This new order represents a striking change from the attitudes she knew growing up. In her early childhood in Somalia, the attitude had been lenient: You kept what rules you could. “If you neglected your religious duties, you were left alone.” Then a new figure appeared, “the preacher teacher.” Most often he’d been trained in Saudi Arabia. He would insist not only that all laws be followed to the seventh-century letter, but that friends and family who didn’t meet standards be snitched on immediately. If they would not reform, ties must be broken. Christians must be converted or else ties broken. Jews must simply be destroyed.

Krauthammer: Holder Trampled on the Constitution

The Attorney General of the United States is supposed to defend truth in law and the democratic process in the United States of America according to the Supreme Law of the Land, the Federal Constitution. Mr. Holder saw his role otherwise. He was racistly inclined and not fond of the nation he and his boss, Barack Hussein Obama, had inherited…..at home and abroad.

The two promised change to America!

This Eric Holder, this Attorney General by habit, design, and with contempt, has ignored the law, broken the law, and has deviously spread the evil of black racism, causing citizen fear of government, discontent with government, and distrust of the new America they were creating, crippling America….. emanating from the spite of his own bigotries.

He was top servant to Barack Hussein Obama……his left hand man defining Change for America.

Charles Krauthammer appears in the following realclearpolitics video reviewing Obama’s Attorney General’s legacy to the nation and its freedoms:

Theodore Dalrymple on Conservative Dinesh D’Souza Ordered to Mental Reorganization Training……

One of my favorite writers on the demise of Western Culture is Theodore Dalrymple…..of Jolly England, then to France, and now showing up with words in the City Journal.

I’d read him anywhere.

Despite moneylessness most of the time in my life, years ago after reading Dalrymple’s book, OUR CULTURE, WHAT’S LEFT OF IT, I bought 24 copies and sent one to each of my ‘favorite’ lefties types who were arranging its disorder. Guys did read the book. Gals did not.

Mr. Dalrymple is a survivor of a Communist background and therefore, a conservative reformer at about the same time I was reforming from a more lefty way of viewing political disorder. He is also the author of LIFE AT THE BOTTOM. I believe he is my age in this woods having been raised in the Hitler-Stalin eras of life.

Dinesh D’Souza is among the finest thinking Americans you’ll ever find these days…..the three or four of them still alive.

The Reeducation of Dinesh D’Souza

CRIME IS NOT A DISEASE by Theodore Dalrymple

Reading the New York Times account this morning of the sentence passed on Dinesh D’Souza—the filmmaker, writer, and outspoken critic of President Obama—for violating the laws relating to campaign finance, I was horrified to read the following: “As part of his probation, Mr. D’Souza . . . will also be required to undergo therapeutic counseling.” Assuming this to be an accurate report, one can only conclude that America is undergoing a gentle but nonetheless sinister cultural revolution.

From what illness is D’Souza supposed to be suffering? Is it of such a contagious nature that he needs state-mandated therapy, like Typhoid Mary? To judge by the comments left by New York Times readers, not everyone likes D’Souza, and indeed some of the hatred expressed toward him seems—well, almost pathological, at least in the metaphorical sense. Even the preposterous Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association, which makes patients of us all, could hardly find anything morbid in D’Souza’s conduct. The only justification for forcing him to undergo therapeutic counseling would be if crime were illness. (I leave aside the absurdity of the concept of such counseling itself, in the efficacy of which the judge must presumably have believed as others believe that walking under a ladder is unlucky). This idea has a long pedigree and is far from liberal in its consequences. In the year of my birth, C. S. Lewis published a brilliant essay titled “The Humanitarian Theory of Punishment.” In it, he wrote, inter alia: “Those who hold it think it is mild and merciful. In this I think they are seriously mistaken. I believe that the ‘Humanity’ which it claims is a dangerous illusion and disguises the possibility of cruelty and injustice without end.”

If crime is illness, no limit exists to the treatment that may be employed to cure it and nothing inhibits the use of ferocious remedies to root it out. As Lewis intuited, cruelty may then be disguised as benevolence, and there is no cruelty like that which believes it is doing good.

True, therapeutic counseling is not hideously cruel, though it is likely to be agonizingly idiotic for any intelligent person. Moreover, it is also likely to invite dishonesty on the part of the “treated,” who will be expected to accept the counselor’s point of view without demur, however ludicrous or demeaning it may be. Contestation will be taken as a sign that the patient-criminal is not cured and therefore in need of yet more therapeutic counseling. To enforce therapeutic counseling as “treatment” for a criminal act is a violation of the integrity of the human personality. There are worse violations no doubt, but it is the beginning of a descent down a slippery slope.

Punishment is not therapy; crime is not disease. The Soviets thought that dissent was crime and crime was disease: therefore, with them, dissent was disease. We have not yet reached that point, but “therapy” for illegal campaign contributions is coming uncomfortably close to it.

Theodore Dalrymple is a contributing editor of City Journal, the Dietrich Weismann Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, and the author of many books, including Our Culture, What’s Left of It: The Mandarins and the Masses.
