Cognitive dissonance

Senator Feinstein uttered a TRUTH.

Feinstein Acknowledges There’s Still No Evidence of Russian Collusion

The investigations of Russian collusion into the 2016 election have been going on for nearly 10 months now, and key Republican lawmakers are ready for the congressional committees looking into the matter to wrap it up. No evidence of collusion has been found—a point even some top Democratic lawmakers are acknowledging. (emphasis added)

Sen. Dianne Feinstein was asked Sunday by CNN’s Jake Tapper about revelations that former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos sought “dirt” on Hillary Clinton from someone with Russian connections who claimed he could provide “thousands” of her emails. Papadopoulos plead guilty of lying to the FBI about his contact with a Russian national but it still was not evidence of collusion.

George Papadopoulos pled guilty to a single charge of making a false statement to the FBI.  He was not charged with so-called “collusion” because no such crime exists in American statutory law, except in anti-trust matters.  It has no application to elections and political campaigns.

It is not a crime to talk to a Russian. Not that the media would ever understand that.  They have never managed to point to a single statute that makes “colluding” with a foreign government in a political campaign a crime, likely because it does not exist in the criminal codes. (Fox News)

“Have you seen any evidence that this dirt, these emails, were ever given to the Trump campaign?” Tapper asked the California Democrat.

“Not so far,” she replied.

Feinstein is a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee and the ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, both of which are investigating Russian collusion.

“Have you seen any communications that suggested that the trump campaign wanted them to release them through a different means?” he pressed.

“I have not,” she replied.

Note that no member of the august press asked when they were going to investigate Hillary.

California Becomes First State to Allow Gender-Neutral Birth Certificates

California is now the first state in the country to grant gender-neutral birth certificates for people who feel like they are neither men nor women.

Perhaps these certificates should be genus neutral, don’t even bother with listing species.

The Sacramento Bee reports on Sunday, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law the ”Gender Recognition Act” that allows for gender-neutral options on driver’s licenses and also on birth certificates. Oregon and Washington D.C. previously enacted gender-neutral driver license options, but California is the first state to allow the gender-neutral option on birth certificates.

The new birth certificates and licenses allow people who feel like they are neither men nor women—people who think they are “non-binary” or “genderqueer” or any other nonconforming gender—to choose “non-binary” as an option on their official documentation.

The Los Angeles Times reports the new driver’s licenses start to be issued in 2019.

Honoring the NFL and ‘Free Speech’

The State owned Media colludes with the NFL to make sure that the clowns players rights to FREE SPEECH is not impinged. We note how they always stood up for thin in the past.

IF you watch a game, think about how these players were treated for their Speech rights.

NFL History – Says it all

    • In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling for each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his blackout to avoid glare and made him take it off.
    • In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.
    • In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said “Know Jesus Know Peace” but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.
    • In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing “Find the Cure” eye black for breast cancer awareness.
    • In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem…)
    • In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.
    • In 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.
    • So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression all of a sudden….

Cognitive dissonance

These late night bloviators want to make jokes about current events, but when the event fouls their nest, well not so much is it humorous.

Kimmel had much to say as the Pope of America’s probity on ObamaCare, gun control and the President. Now the scandalous and possible criminal actions of Weinstein, Kimmel claims a “no license” to engage in making comment abut someone else’s behavior.

Kimmel on Lack of Weinstein Jokes: Look, I’m Not the Country’s Moral Conscience, Okay?

Well, you could have fooled us, Jim.  It really seemed like you were supremely comfortable with serving as the country’s self-appointed moral conscience as you agitated against Obamacare repeal (having admitted to never meeting any of the millions who’ve been harmed by the law) by literally reading Democratic talking points — all to great media acclaim.  And you appeared mighty fine with scolding Republicans on gun control, smearing Second Amendment advocates as somehow complicit in the Las Vegas massacre.  Given this sobering, complicating reality check from Dianne Feinstein, I was half expecting you to primary her from the left out there in California.  But what’s this?  Are you suddenly surrendering your mantle as High Priest of Moral Rectitude and Wokeness all because you’re hesitant to go nuclear on your buddy whose grubby fingerprints are all over the industry in which you make your lavish living (and also unwilling women’s bodies)?

Kimmel had to be dragged, kicking and screaming into targeting Weinstein by Donald Trump, Jr. — following two full shows of silence.  Why is this professional comedian (and others) still soft-pedaling the topic?  Is there no ridicule-worthy content in a man whose employment contract basically allowed for sexual harassment, so long as he paid fines to the board, whose members are now feigning terrible shock over his long history predatory abuses?  And who’s reportedly planning to challenge his termination as wrongful?  Nothing to skewer here, amirite, Jimmer?

Climate Foibles

Stuff the NY Times and the Eco-nazis won’t tell you. MSNBC and CNN has no desire to publish anything of this sort. Rest assured WE shall.

October Arctic surprise: Rapid recovery of ice extent

  1. October Arctic Surprise: Rapid Recovery Of Ice Extent
    Ron Clutz, Science Matters, 7 October 2017 In recent years, October has seen some rapid recoveries of Arctic ice extents.  But this year may become something special.
    With the early onset of Siberian snow cover and the resulting surface cooling, ice is roaring back, especially on the Asian side. Consider the refreezing during the last 11 days through yesterday.
  2. Tony Abbott, Green Attacks And Ridley’s Paradox
    Paul Matthews, Climate Scepticism, 10 October 2017 Tony Abbott, former PM of Australia, gave the annual GWPF lecture on Monday night. Predictably, the talk has been attacked, thereby giving it lots of publicity, and equally predictably, there is no substance to the attacks.
  3. Green Activists Face Up To 21 Years In Prison As Judge Rejects Climate Change Excuse
    The New York Times, 10 October 2017 A lawyer for an environmental activist convicted of targeting an oil pipeline in North Dakota said he doesn’t think a judge’s decision disallowing the threat of global warming as a defense to justify the crime would be grounds for an appeal.
  4. Germany’s Green Caste System Contributed To Merkel’s Electoral Losses
    Daily Caller, 9 October 2017  The country’s hefty solar subsides have created a have and have-not type caste system in Germany, the report notes. Germany’s poorest citizens began joining ranks with Merkel’s chief political opponent after subsides caused electricity bills to skyrocket.
  5. Germany Set To Widely Miss Climate Targets, Environment Ministry Warns
    Clean Energy Wire, 11 October 2017 Germany’s environment ministry fears high emissions from coal-fired power plants and transport will make the country miss its 2020 climate targets by a wider margin than previously anticipated. The ministry’s warning adds further pressure to make fast progress on climate-related issues in upcoming talks aimed at forming a new government following September’s general elections.
  6. Obama’s Clean Power Plan Is Finally Getting The Axe. But Climate Skeptics Want More
    E&E News, 11 October 2017  The Trump administration today will officially announce the end of the Clean Power Plan, a regulation limiting planet-warming carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. But the conservative crowd that’s skeptical about climate change says its work is just beginning.
  7. CEI Analysis: EPA Proposes Clean Power Plan Repeal Rule
    Competitive Enterprise Institute, 9 October 2017 On Tuesday, October 10, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt is expected to release the agency’s proposed rule to repeal the Clean Power Plan (CCP). The CPP, which aims to reduce U.S. electric power sector carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, was the Obama administration’s marquee domestic climate policy and principal regulatory component of the U.S. emission-reduction pledge under the Paris Climate Accord. On Friday, October 6, someone leaked the repeal rule a few days before its official debut. In this post, I provide excerpts and offer commentary on the leaked document.

Peccable reflections

Perhaps some of the readers can hearken back to their days when they gamboled in their fields of wild oats in rather loose behavior. Some of the comments below might being back some memories which dance very close to the edge of reality.

Some anamnesis from your salad days.

  • You’re not sure when Mary Ann sneaked out your apartment last night, but you figure it was about the same time Mrs. Howell sneaked in.
  • You resolve to call your local councilman and complain about the city’s ill-advised policy of putting lampposts in the middle of the road.
  • Falling into the ocean from the shore, hen waking up staring at an oil soaked railroad embankment and a heavily overdrawn bank account are truly elements of “the most awesome weekend.”
  • You call an ex-friend at 3am to ask what he meant by that remark last July.
  • You receive divorce papers from your liver and it wants full custody of the kidneys.
  • You were genuinely excited about an ad promising “More bars in more places” until you found out they were talking about cell phones.
  • You don’t have to imagine what a spilled gin and tonic sucked from a shag rug tastes like.
  • You holler out,”Beerkeep, more bar” and wonder why you’re outside.
  • You drank so much beer last night you single-highhandedly wore out a fresh urinal cake.

That wonderful but elusive “Radiant Future”

Ever since the Glorious October Revolution, the Liberals, Socialists, Communists, Progressives one and all have made promises of a future where everyone is equal, wise, well fed and comfortable. Of course in practice, it is only the elite that are living that life style.

Witness Uncle Bernie, the Savior of Vermont, who owns four houses and lives of the largess of the taxpayers. His wife managed to drive two colleges into fiscal turmoil one ending in bankruptcy and eventually dragging her into court on fraud charges. Some Radiant Future for those students. They received bupkis. But this Communist has grand visions for you and the Country, not just Vermont.

Uncle Bernie wants to have the grand SPHC, which Vermont Progressives already rejected as so expensive, the Progressives said they couldn’t afford it. California rejected it because they couldn’t afford it; they are a mental box of rocks when it comes to finances. He wants to lay it on Medicare/Medicaid so that the taxpayers get crushed.
Sen. Sanders cares not that Venezuela is trying the same crap that the Soviet Union and Cuba tried with the same results.

If you can’t get it to work in a Century, do you think it will work by trying for another 100 years?
Socialists have an enormous case of the STUPIDS.
