The Serial Liar

Michael Ignatieff aka Count Igula... Goes on air and tells lies about his family .... boohoo cries Iggy .... my family had it tough ..... cries the Igster ....

Hmmmm.... remember that book of his a couple years ago ... a little biography where he outlined how his grandpappy got out of mother Russia with a small fortune ... just the equivalent of a couple million bucks today..... remember those condescending comments by the Count about how overblown the reports of Ukrainian holocaust are/were ..... lots of stuff like that??

Well those are facts bubala and Iggy is a liar liar pants on fire.... when it comes to who he is and how he came to be where he is.

This is it in a nutshell ..... Iggy was bored .... bored ... bored with his crummy position at Harvard where he was not (as claimed by many) a professor .... but a simple researcher in a not high paying job. Iggy did not teach at Harvard .... as he would like to have people believe and not much prestige in the work he did there. How demeaning for the count. So .... he passed his time writing provocative opinions on world events to get himself noticed and made some calls to his old friends at the LIberal headquarters. Those same guys who helped PET screw this country over and gave us Jean Chretien .... Paul Martin and Steffi Dion ( remember him?).
Well the back room boys at the LPC decided that Iggy was something they could work with... just what "Canadians" were looking for ... because of course whatever is good for the LPC is good for Canadians .... eh?

Remember the deal Iggy signed with Laytoon and Duceppe to stick together on grabbing power from the Conservatives? Still on the paper they put their names on.... good till June 2011.

A couple of years down the road and the brain trust figures that the time is now or never so they tell Iggy to call in the paper on the dippers and the traitor separatistes and pull the plug on our government.

Now Iggy is unhappy that people ... Conservatives .... point out that he is a privileged son of a privileged family ... and he would like us to believe that he is just a humble son of humble immigrants who struggled to live the Canadian dream?

Not so ....

The Great Unifyer


Unify Americans? .... Nope .... more interested in stimulating conflict in the USA... It's ALL Us vs. Them in his playbook .... know your enemy people.

Unify the world .... Nope.... so far he's pissed off or alienated every one of America's traditional allies.

Unify the enemy? That's more like it ..... so far he's succeded in abbeting the unification of the entire Middle East under the influence of Militant Islamic extremists.

So far ... Iran is getting a free pass to continue being what they are ... Egypt has been handed over to the Brotherhood.... Iraq is going down the tubes as Islamists gain the upper hand there ... Lybia is only weeks away from falling under the control of Islamists ... the Saudis will be facing the same thing as al Quaida hates the royal family there and is working hard to undermine them ... ditto for the Emirates... Ditto for Syria .... Lebanon will be finished soon .... pretty much all of North Africa is going to hell .....

All this just to exercise some long held desire to teach those Uppity Jews in Israel a lesson in humility?

Well good for you ... Obama.... I'm sure all your pals are really proud of The Real Barack Obama whether he be evil activist or willing stooge .... the results of him being the POTUS are going to be quite clear.

With the daily mounting evidence that the consequences of the current US administration's action and inaction are nearing catastrophe .... we still hear nothing of this in the mainstream media ... It's almost like they want things to go this way themselves ... or they are just so completely stupidly in love with the president they made possible that they cannot see this coming.

Canadian front ...

Just checking in on the Red Rag of Toronto .... who among the rest of Canadian media were at the forefront of confabulating stories to amplify trivial events into into an never ending string of manufactured political scandals ... surprises the world today with a political article on the impending election that is strictly matter of fact in regard to our Prime Minister's response to the election they worked so hard to create (on behalf of their true ideological friends in politics).

"Harper kicks off campaign ... "

Well ... Good For Them! ..... stay tuned for further developments.....

BTW --- does this make the Toronto Star a "Conservative" propaganda source now?
Are they now under the influence of evil and scary so-cons?

OH HEY .... Check out Jeffy Simpleton at the G&M ... right on cue ..... but haven't we seen this article from him before?

The Progressive Propaganda Business

Yet another gem from the New york Times ....
In an op-ed from some joker named Bob Herbert at the Times:

"Losing Our Way" the opinionist offers a conflated argument that claims evil conservative forces are attempting to infringe upon "The Rights" of academics by making legal requests for information. The requests in question have to do with communications by State Empoyees that violate policies and laws concerning the use of Public resources for Personal and Political activities.

Of course .... in the eyes of the progressive elite there actually exists something called academic rights .... so as usual the entire argument of a left wing elitist begins with a false proposition.

So what is positioned as an informed opinion on a topical matter is in fact nothing but an anti-conservative .... anti-republican ... propaganda article.

But what the heck ... that's their Job! Right?

The Progressive Propaganda Business

After looking around the news this morning I came across some links to the New York Times.

Being a US paper of well known and well deserved repute for taking the Left side of everything I seldom bother with them. This applies to pretty much all of our homegrown Canadian media as well ..... who tend to pick up on these bandwagon events and never give a thought to what the outcomes might be .... it's all just another opportunity to pitch to their audience.

But today a little bit of the Consequences comes back to bite their believers. Muslim Group Takes lead...

It seems that after those weeks of hyping the popular uprising against Mubarak in Egypt as a "Struggle for Democracy" by the nation's youth .... those so called youth have been shoved aside by the two groups that stand (and need) to benefit from the power vacuum created in the fervor of activists progressive wet dreams. In short, the Muslim Brotherhood and their various associated friends have made deals with military power brokers in Egypt to consolidate power and fast track the takeover of Egypt's government.

File that one under No Shit Sherlock!

Yeah Sure ... there's going to be an election ..... but given the fact that there will be no other choice but to support the militant Islamic terrorists and their new friends in the military ... or to waste their efforts supporting hopeless and ineffectual opponents to the Military/Islamist cabal... what the world now has is a coup d'etat.

So much for all that drum banging ... chanting and fist pumping about "Democracy" ... eh?

While the Times editorial staff and writers probably don't really give a shit about such consequences ... I am pretty sure that those useful idiots in Egypt who who allowed themselves to be stampeded by the activists and the media are having some sober thoughts now.

Consequences are a bitch and those of us who were predicting this outcome take little pleasure in being vindicated. Either way the MSM will continue to behave the same way in situations like this... the hope is that more of the public will wake up to the fact that what the Times and their ilk do is not news reporting. Perhaps even make an effort to figure out what is being left out, ignored or even lied about when they pick through these rags.

Friday's Beer!

From the cellars of Trapiste monks in Belgium..... a mini drama / adventure / love story ... By: OMMAG


OMMAG Standing in the Dakota St. MLC ... spots something he has not seen before ... it is the beautiful ORVAL standing there in her simple elegance .... she speaks to OMMAG ..... "Look at me .... take me" OMMAG speaks to her "I've not had the pleasure !" And so .... ORVAL Replies to OMMAG .... " Take me with you ... I will be your pleasure."
And so the deal is done .... OMMAG takes ORVAL into his hands and carresses her curvacious form. Gently, he sets her to rest in a sturdy case with some friends to keep her company.

Later at the home of OMMAG .....
ORVAL is set to rest in a cool dark place (the kind that her kind likes) where she can relax and prepare for the weekend.

As the days go by ... OMMAG has put ORVAL out of his mind .... but the weekend nears and thoughts of ORVAL become more frequent and more intense....

It is Friday afternoon .... OMMAG goes to ORVAL and brings her to his special place.

The happy glass is ready, the opener at hand, the scene is set for some intimate debauchery.

Now being from the home of Monks .... we are not sure if this is the sort of thing they had intended while nurturing this baby girl to maturity ..... but we are past those sort of quibbles.

OMMAG .... picks up the curvy vessel and once more gently carresses her form ... holding her up to the lights .... takes in feel and the form. Then .... prepares to release her from the confines of her travelling clothes. "Set me free." whispers ORVAL.
OMMAG complies ....
With a deftness gained through years of experience intrepid OMMAG applies his might to remove the constraining top and the compliant ORVAL fairly leaps from her confines. With a short gasping exclamation she slithers from the bottle to the happy glass ....

Freed from her former constraints she dances and bubbles, her golden head rising into a delight of froth. The perfume she releases is wonderful .... wild flowers and citrus fruit .... bakeshop aromas with spices and herbs ... fresh mowed clover .... and something so rare it is unidentifiable.

"Hold me close ..." speaks ORVAL...

OMMAG inhales .... he is smitten .... OMMAG is hungry for ORVAL .... he fills his mouth with the golden foam from her crown .... he is surprised by the bitterness of it ... at first.
As the taste of this treat settles in ..... the undertones of the flower and the fruit come back to establish their place in the cloud of flavour sensations..... this is a balance ... a yin and yang.

OMMAG is smiling ..... he knows know that ORVAL has spoken with her other voice and she is inviting as she reveals herself .... "Take me now. I have more .... so much more to give".

And OMMAG is not one to hesitate at such an invitation ....but he has restraint and does so with a slow and deliberate inhalation .... a long and savouring draught that brings the perfume and the musk of her body .... all the senses are aroused. Taste.... the sweet nectar with etherial seasonings .... feel ..... the sensuous creaminess that passes over the palate. OMMAG lets the sensations mingle and subside .... and relishes the after glow of the experience.

But we are not finished ..... again and again ... three .... four ..... and more until there is nothing left of her to give.

OMMAG is satisfied ...... for now.

I'll Be Happy When ....

We can get our money back from these greenturds .......

Green strategies ... Studying what works and does not work in forcing local governments to bow to green activist demands.

Note that in California it is illegal to have trees that block a solar panel or a wind turbine. No matter that the trees were there first or that the equipment is improperly installed and cannot work in any case ... home owners have been forced to cut or remove trees.

Every time some ignorant joker gets a tax break or some grant money out of our tax trough in order to try his hand at being energy smart we are witnessing our hard earned cash being wasted. Make no mistake about it ... these things do not work as they are advertized to do and without you and I footing the bill 99.99% of the jokers who install them would never do it.

Add to this situation the fact that governments at all levels in their eagerness to appear enlightened (which really means being too stupid and spineless) instead of standing up to green busybodies are caving in. It is because of the organized strategy of green activist groups and useful stooges in the legal and public sector that ordinary citizens end up paying for all this.

You and I should have the right to get our money back.

A Peek into the National Post Writers Bin

Although considered by some to be the one bright spot in Canadian news publishing the National Post and their staff writers seem determined to achieve the same level as the likes of the Globe & Mail ..........

In a piece headlined "Canada a big presence in Libya..... despite UN security council snub.... " one intrepid Jschool product exercises his profound awareness of the world with a lame attempt to conflate the two issues.

Most of the commenters at the NP online service get the fact that this is about the level of journalism usually produced in a high school news review .... and of course at least one thinks it is an invitation to share his total lack of knowledge with an irrational biliation about "Harper and the Conservatives".

To be clear ... Canada in no way needs to be on the UN security council ... and it is entirely up to us to choose whether we need to participate in anything they sanction or promote or to pay them any heed at all....

The UN security council is an organization without any credbility and it's majority members the least qualified to be making any judgements or plans on behalf of other nations. In fact, given the pathetic performance of the UN at large and their steady degeneration into a club for third world parasites to enjoy the trapings of power and import at the expense of you and Me....

For my money .... I'd like to see Canada stop contributing anything to this cabal of corrupt losers.

THIS really cheeses me.

While much has been written of the Sultan of Brunei’s car collection—and there are no lack of spy photos of the collection on the Internet—the estimated 2,500 cars are actually not the Sultan’s. They were the property of Prince Jefri, the Sultan’s third brother. As the Minister of Finance for Brunei (until 1997) Prince Jefri controlled the revenue from oil and gas through the BIA or Brunei Investment Authority and a network of companies under the name Amadeo.

American Leadership ..... Heh?

Filed under the Damned if you do .... Damned if you don't category:

Looks like the Obama administration is pooched ..... caught in a fork .... unable to move without taking political loses.

This little tidbit .... Obama Criticized... speaks volumes about how the deranged left cannot tolerate any government action that smacks of responsibility and good sense.

Bradley Manning is a traitor and the military has every right to treat him as harshly as the rules allow. So if some political appointee in the state department who happens to have an axe to grind steps out of line in regard to the matter then that political appointee deserves a smack down.

I'm as surprised as anyone could be that Obama pulled the pin on his boy P.J. Crowley ... but I'm not surprised in any way that leftards are having head explosions all over the place over it.

But that is the way it goes when you get in bed with the Bedlamites.

If the State dept. had been allowed to give this a pass it would have giving a pile of political ammo to the GOP and all other critics of Obama who would have been all over such a blatant free pass for an defender of an enemy of the American people ...rightly so.

But he took the other path and now the loons are screeching about Bush etc etc etc....

Now I just wonder if there isn't an underlying story here .... indulging in a bit of conspiracy theorizing .... Clinton ... as in the pair of them have been getting their licks in on Obozo in recent months.

Hillary has been winning battles on the international relations front in ways that make most of the presidents campaign assertions look like exactly what they were..... a load of crap.

Bill the Dick has been getting shots in randomly and quite often about Obozo's failings.

Since this Crowley was Clinton boy from the getgo ... is it too far fetched to guess that maybe this is Clinton triangulation?

Contradictions, Omissions and Irony

Considering that the primary activity of their being in Libya was providing material to be used in cheerleading for the other side!.................

There was a story I caught on the radio this morning on the way to work where the New York Times talks about some of their field reporters gone missing in Libya.

What I clearly heard spoken was that the Times editorial management was asking the Libyan authorities to help locate the men. The on air report also clearly said that the Times "Hoped that the men were in the hands of the Libyan authorities."

After work I wanted to dig into this a little and here is what I found:

al Reuters

"We have talked with officials of the Libyan government in Tripoli, and they tell us they are attempting to ascertain the whereabouts of our journalists," Bill Keller, the executive editor of The New York Times, said in a statement.

On the story from ...

The Times

Who printed ... “We have talked with officials of the Libyan government in Tripoli, and they tell us they are attempting to ascertain the whereabouts of our journalists,” said Bill Keller, executive editor of The Times. “We are grateful to the Libyan government for their assurance that if our journalists were captured they would be released promptly and unharmed.”

Sometimes it's more important to know what was left out of a report ....

Now if I were one of those journos in Libya .... I'm pretty sure none of these statements would be very reassuring. For all intents and based on the track record of Libya and it's authorities they just might be better off NOT in the hands of those people.

As things stand ... I'm still stuck on the "Were hoping they're in the hands of the authorities..." thing ... considering the primary activity of their being in Libya!

Our Happy Socialist Paradise

And so it goes that the "People's Party" girds their loins for another battle with the forces of darkness... AKA .. Manitobans who actually work at real jobs and contribute to the welfare of the welfare state.

Has it caught your attention that our public energy utility Manitoba Hydro has been spending your money on TV and radio advertisements to promote the Bi-Pole III power line project? (Plan-B)

Have you seen the ads? Here's the web page where they host them!

Did you get what they are saying?

Did you get the bit about the reliability, environment and opportunity? Did you ever hear that same bit from Hydro about the original Plan-A? (East Side Route)

Why is Manitoba Hydro broadcasting NDP talking points about a project that is in fact not being pursued for any of the reasons stated?

Did Manitoba Hydro not already have a plan in place that met all of these warm and fuzzy goals before the NDP came to power?

You will note that Hydro is not claiming that they are pursuing the BEST plan. That they are in fact not saying anything that falls outside the realm of NDP lies intended to move people to believe that the People's Party is backing the a transmission line plan that is in the best interests of the people of Manitoba. Let's be clear about this ... the Bi-Pole III plan is NOT Manitoba Hydro's plan.

This plan is the product of the NDP arrogance and incompetence. The Bi-Pole III plan evolved from what started out as a real plan based on the results of studies conducted by Hydro.

The NDP at first agreed that the Manitoba Hydro plan to run a new power line down the East side of Lake Winnipeg along the Ontario boundary was the best possible approach. They agreed with the results of the studies and they agreed with the goals of the Plan-A.

Then along came a local mouthpiece for a US based environmental activist group complaining that parts of the route bordered or included a "World Nature Preserve". A preserve determined not by the people of Canada nor by the People of Manitoba but rather by the self professed authority of an organisation that has no authority over our Nation at all. I will not go into the depths of corruption behind the UN and it's policies .... save to say that there has never been one that Canada has been beneficiary of ... quite the contrary.

So ... after our home grown eco-fanatic gets his buddies in the US all worked up ... they deliver a public announcement claiming (falsely) that the planned construction project is going to do irreparable harm to the environment and the local residents of the area. Also that it was in some way illegal and immoral because the UN said .... blah... blah .... blah!!

Well ... good old Grinnin Gary caved to these nobodies faster than a cheese soufle' dropped on the floor..... our gutless wonder fearless leader ... couldn't turn around fast enough in the face of self righteous indignation from politically correct and self important meddlers like that.

After all those folks used all the right words eh? Like ... environment.... sustainable ..... blah ... blah .... destruction .... devastation .... blah .... blah ..... aboriginal .... blah ... blah ... blah .... human rights .....blah blah.... and pretty much every sort of flapdoodle know nothing activist BS possible (and that is a lot).

After that skid mark on Broadway avenue.... Doer .... began telling the whoppers ...used the lies concocted by foreign environmental activist organizations and ramped the whole issue up into a political campaign to help see them into term #3 by pretending that the opposition conservatives had been behind Plan-A.

Perhaps you failed to notice that Manitoba Hydro recently admitted that the Bi-Pole III west route is going to cost twice what the NDP claimed? No matter ... the NDP cost projections were nothing but faery dust to sooth the nervous among their own ranks .... they never cared what anyone else thought or knew .... because that's just the way it is when you are "The People's Party".

Plan-B is nothing but political opportunism .... crass pandering to interest groups who have no interest in Manitoba or any right to interfere in our business .... an ideologically driven desire to control things they have no understanding of ..... gross incompetence .... and absolute disregard for the welfare of Manitoba.

So ... after all this ... just why is Manitoba Hydro spending taxpayers money to promote the B plan?

More to NPR Resignations ...

Could be ... since the folks who ran the expose on them probably do have more video....

Personally, I find the sort of hidden camera stuff just plain sleazy .... but there is much more than just the amateurish espionage performed by James O'Keefe for his ... that's the same folks who performed the gotcha stings that helped to collapse ACORN across ther US.....

However, it remains to be seen whether there is more to this recent bamboozle at NPR.

Commentary Magazine poses the question "Why would Viv Schiller resign that$500k job over what was essentially an effort to do her job in promoting her company?"

As for the other Schiller ... who is no relation ... same deal. The guy is a millionaire fundraiser who gets paid very well for results .... regardless of his personal opinions.

You have to consider that 80 % of NPR funding comes from sympathetic private donations ad grants. Even if the pols who are going after their funding are successful they are unlikely to actually recover that 20% of forced taxpayer contribution.... probably a percentage of that like 20 percent which would work out to something like a 4% total reduction.

So for the threat of a statistical blip and one mildly embarrasing video ... we get two high profile NPR execs to resign? That does not really add up IMO.

I'm inclined to thin that there is a lot more that these people have to be worried about... whether or not there are videos on the loose.

Even if you look at the sting executed on NPR director of institutional donations Betsy Liley ... who was videotaped conspiring with a guy posing as Muslim Brotherhood rep to conceal a $5 mil donation... that should not affect the other jobs.

I'm thinking that just maybe ... there is a lot more dirt under that roof and the powers that be at NPR are just hoping to cut their loses.

Makes me wonder what we could dig up at CBC .... remember that CBC thing where they claimed they do not have to divulge information about where the spend their money ... or where it comes from?

As put forward by Evan Sayet ... in the Reluctant Optimist .... if you have been paying attention .... the ongoing struggle of the self styled progressives continues unabated... your moral and intellectual betters prove themselves incapable of grasping reality ... and unwilling to hear/see when it is shoved in their faces.

Witness the ongoing saga of Peter King ... US Congressman:

As the muzzy mouthfoamers go into full spastic mode the MSM chooses to ignore the vitriolic savages and work to undermine and belittle a US lawmaker for trying to force his own government to recognize a danger.

No one who reads this blog (except for some of those trolls) has any doubt about the nature of this threat to our own rightful pursuit of our lives and our way of life that we have won by blood and toil.

But the traitorous liberal media will fight tooth and nail to prevent this fact from being officially acknowledged.

On a brighter note .... Liberal pundits are in turmoil as their house of entitlements begins to crumble .... Politics Daily

Happy Pancake Day

Potato pancakes to be exact .... otherwise known as latke...latka...placki...duruny...draniki...

Whatever you want to call them they make a great little base for a meal.

Eat them plain or with sourcreme on top.... spice them up with salsa or hot sauce .....

Fry an egg and put it on top .... or go with a full ham/bacon .... egg and whatever!

When I was a kid My Mom used to use them instead of bread for a hot roast beef/pork sandwich... special treat ... just for me. Beef off the roast ... piled high .... smothered in gravy .... big sides of slaw and preserves.... :b

I saw one of those TV chefs use them for the bottom of an Eggs Benedict. ... and smoked salmon snacks.

There are many different ways to make them ... here's mine:

Small Batch (Serves two OR one hungry guy) = two large russet pototos > shredded. Just use more spuds if you want more.
You can wash the potato shreds in cold water and rinse the starch off if you like.
Do this and then dry them before adding other ingredients.

I just sprinkle a little flour on top in a mixing bowl - flour makes them thicker and not so crisp. Not a lot just a bit it make it bind...

Add a tablespoon of oil .... dried onion flakes (or shredded or finely chopped onion)- salt - pepper - a tablespoon of baking powder - an egg - a half a coffee cup of water ....

Beat it all together with a spatula .... then add some minced garlic - finely cut green onion.

Heat up a non-stick pan and put a tablespoon of oil in .... then drop a large spoonful of your batter ( I like to make them anywhere from 3 to 5 inches across and flat as I can).

Try one at first to get the timing down and the golden brown on both sides result.
Test for seasoning and add salt or pepper as required.

Once you think your ready ... start doing three at a time ....

I like to keep the oven hot at 375 f and I put the whole batch in when they are all ready .... lay them out flat on a sheet or tray ..... takes about 10 minutes to finish them off nice.

The Godfathers of Climate Fraud

Or more accurately their leiutenants.............

Our intrepid skeptic and denier at Greenie Watch picks up on an article in Forbes.

Global Warming Alarmists Flip-Flop On Snowfall

Sitting in on a March 1 Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS) press conference regarding global warming and heavy snowfalls, I couldn’t help feeling like the chairman of the Senate committee questioning mafia capo Frank Pentangeli in Godfather II. The chairman, listening incredulously as Pentangeli contradicts a sworn written statement he had earlier given to the committee, waves the written statement in the air and protests, “We have a sworn affidavit — we have it — your sworn affidavit…. Do you deny that confession, and do you realize what will happen as a result of your denial?”

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Third Assessment Report was as straightforward as Frank Pentangeli’s earlier confession that he had killed on behalf of Michael Corleone. “Milder winter temperatures will decrease heavy snowstorms,” IPCC reported.

That was in 2001. Now, however, with an unprecedented number of major winter snowstorms hitting the northeastern U.S. during the past two winters, the alarmists are clamming up and changing their tune faster than Tom Hagen can fly in Vincenzo Pentangeli from Italy to aid his brother in his time of trouble.

Jeff Masters, director of meteorology at the Weather Underground, and Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center, explained to the media at the UCS press conference why they believe global warming caused the heavy snowfalls in the northeast these past two winters. Masters and Serreze obviously are weather experts. They may be right. Other weather experts, such as John Coleman, co-founder of the Weather Channel, and Joseph D’Aleo, the first director of meteorology at the Weather Channel, disagree with Masters and Serreze. It is also possible that Coleman and D’Aleo are right.

During the question and answer portion of the UCS press conference, I quoted the IPCC Third Assessment Report and asked Masters and Serreze if they were saying IPCC was wrong on the science.

“I would say that we always learn,” replied Serreze. “Have we learned a great deal since the IPCC 2001 report? I would say yes, we have. Climate science, like any other field, is a constantly evolving field and we are always learning.”

While I believe the weight of scientific evidence favors Coleman and D’Aleo, the larger importance of the UCS press conference is not whether global warming causes – in effect – more winter, but what the press conference illustrated about the alarmists’ oft-repeated assertions that “the science is settled” and “the debate is over.”

The IPCC Third Assessment Report was as straightforward as one can get asserting that global warming would cause a decline in heavy snow events. As the Senate chairman would say, while waving the IPCC report, “We have it….” But now that real-world evidence has proven IPCC wrong, the alarmists have pulled an about-face and are claiming global warming is causing more frequent heavy snow events.

Regardless of whether global warming is causing more heavy snow events, the alarmists’ about-face on snowfall calls to mind other alarmist global warming assertions that were supposedly “settled science”, but that were subsequently refuted by real-world climate conditions. The alarmists used to claim global warming was causing more hurricanes, but real-world data show hurricanes have fallen to historically lows levels.

The alarmists used to claim global warming was causing the retreat of Kilimanjaro’s mountain snowcap, but scientists now understand that local deforestation is the culprit. IPCC claimed in its 2007 assessment that global warming would likely melt the Himalayan glaciers by 2035, but IPCC now admits there is no scientific basis for such an assertion. IPCC claimed in its 1990 assessment that global temperatures should rise 0.6 degrees Celsius between 1990 and 2010, yet NASA satellite data show global temperatures warmed by merely half that amount, at most.

For years, alarmists have claimed “the science is settled” and “the debate is over.” Well, when was the science settled? When global warming would allegedly cause Himalayan glaciers to melt by 2035, or now that it won’t? When global warming would allegedly cause fewer heavy snow events, or now that it will allegedly cause more frequent heavy snow events?

We could ask Frank Pentangeli, but Frankie Five Angles is no longer talking.

I Agreee !

Says Bob Parks .... "I Don't Owe Unions A Goddamned Thing!"

Lemme get this out: while I more than appreciate the work performed by teachers, police, and firefighters, I don’t appreciate them throwing the fact they do that job in my face.

We don’t live in a communist country where jobs are assigned according to intellect or bulk. Police officers and firefighters weren’t drafted. If you chose to be one, I applaud you but that being said, that doesn’t mean you get to tell us how much you get paid because you chose a job that potentially puts your life in peril. If it’s not worth the risk, I wouldn’t blame you at all if you walked, but this job safety-guilt trip shit is starting to fall on deaf ears.

Amen Bob .... Amen!

And how about teachers ... whose main complaint is being held responsible for the outcome of their work? Or possibly the fact that they don't actually LIKE having to deal with people's bad mannered and belligerent kids?

And don't we have the same sort of BS from civil servants ... clerks... administrators ... affirmative action hires who would be stocking shelves at convenience stores at best if not for the largess of the taxpayer.

As I've been saying for decades ... If you can't hack the job then quit and do something else ... if you're so precious what's the problem?

At the bottom of this list ... and maybe should be at the top ... are the union organizers and leadership who in my opinion are the greatest beneficiaries of the whole tax sucking scam while providing no benefit to the tax payer.

Hey Muammar !

Libya 2008......

It seems they've refined the human trafficking business to new levels.
The way the scam works is that they leave their own borders open to masses of North African migrants. They allow smugglers free reign to operate within the Libyan borders and to ship their cargo over the Mediterranean. If things are as usual within the Libyan state then this is probably a real money maker for military and government officials as well.
When European states complain the Libyans cry poor and seek financial aid to help stem the tide which makes it profitable for the government. And of course, they can continue to play innocent victim of circumstances while blackmailing nations like Italy for money to "help fight" the human trafficking plague!

Guess how much success they're having at that eh!

The real deal here is that Libya has been promoted as a reformed nation and a responsible state that operates under civil rule of law and works in cooperation with other nations as a responsible member of the world's nations.

Once again the UN is right at the core of one of the biggest fiascos in history!
Completely oblivious to malfeasance of one of it's pet members and incapable of acting in the interest of the wider global community. Even in support of it's own policies.

Note: The US resumed full diplomatic relations with Libya in May 2006 and rescinded Libya's designation as a state sponsor of terrorism in June.

Libya 2011......

UN Expresses Concern ....

As thousands of refugees flee from the violence and unrest in Libya through the Tunisian and Egyptian borders, the UN humanitarian chief on Friday expressed concern over the growing humanitarian crisis.

"Our concern now is that the numbers leaving Libya dropped sharply yesterday," Valerie Amos, UN under-secretary-general for humanitarian affairs and emergency relief coordinator, told reporters here.

Oh! BTW ... if you thought all those "freedom fighters" and rebels are actually Libyan nationals .... think again. The reality is that the nation has been steadily inundated with imigrants from surrounding north African states and regions and many of them are there for jihad.
Jihad? Yes ... because in spite of his frequent public displays of piety old Muammar has been keeping the mad mullahs and their cadre of mouth foamers under a tight reign and preventing the erosion of what is in reality a burgeoning secular society.
Now let's be clear ... there is no question that the clan of Khadaffi is very serious about keeping control of the nation and very ruthless.

It seems that their time has come and that they really do deserve to be ousted. But that does not in any way mean that the Europeans and the rest of the UN class of parasites and criminals have any claim to the high moral ground in this matter.
Here's an example of some (rather comical) sabre rattling from Britain

The Daily Mail !!

The "Harper" Government

You've read the headlines a thousand times and heard the talking heads of the MSM say it....

"The Harper Government"!! Expressed with sneers of contempt and surrounded by that constant air of liberal self righteousness and superiority. As self proclaimed progressives have shown time and time again that they have no qualms about using the english language in any distorted manner to define the targets of their contempt, they cannot abide having their own words taken from the pejorative to the positive .....

And NOW ....

In yet another effort to manufacture some controversy that might buoy there hopes of a LIberal resurgence ... The Ignatief LIberals and their helpful friend at Canadian Press, Bell Globemedia, CBC and all the rest have decided that if the Conservatives do exactly what they ALL have been doing since Stephen Harper came to the PM Office.....

OTTAWA — Federal Liberals are moving swiftly to capitalize on public outrage over Conservative attempts to rebrand the government of Canada as "the Harper government."

They've produced a radio ad that will begin running Saturday in Quebec, expressing shock at the Tories' effrontery in equating the government with Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

"Like you, I am profoundly shocked," Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff says in the ad.

"It's totally unacceptable. The government of Canada is not the government of Mr. Harper, it's the government of citizens, the government of all the citizens of Canada."

The Canadian Press revealed Thursday that a directive was sent late last year to public servants, advising them that "government of Canada" should be replaced in all federal communications with the words "the Harper government."

Never mind the FACT that successive LIBeral governments did exactly the same thing when they thought they had something to gain by it.......

Your moral and intellectual betters of the liberal media reserve the right for themselves alone to decide when our government of Canada will be called "The Harper Government" or the Conservative Government....

Well I have news for all of them ... It is Your Government and MY government .... but if Stephen Harper wants to call his governing party "The Harper" government .... well that is just fine with me. At least up until the point where they lose the right to do so.

AP Strikes ComedyGold

As time goes on the derangement of these MSM clowns becomes more of a joke than a cause for concern.
Today in all earnest newsy reportiness some dorks who write for this pathetic excuse for a news organization came up with .....

Venezuela: Gadhafi supports Chavez peace proposal

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Moammar Gadhafi supports a plan proposed by Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to help mediate a peaceful resolution to the crisis in Libya, a Venezuelan official said Thursday.

Information Minister Andres Izarra said on Twitter that Venezuela's foreign minister, Nicolas Maduro, spoke with his Libyan counterpart, who in Gadhafi's name confirmed his government's support for the peace initiative proposed by Chavez.

The Law of Unintended Consequences

Always works against efforts to regulate through government intervention.

Pro-regulatory activists often proclaim that the solution is to appoint non involved and ignorant ... possibly antagonistic types to regulator panels or commissions.

But the smart ones know that co opting insiders is the way to go...... As explained by Richard Fernandez Some Excerpts ....

Therefore all attempts at “financial reform”, “healthcare reform” and “Green Energy” must be scrutinized very carefully because regulatory expansion is a two-edged sword. It may lead, not to the protection of the “little guy” by the government, but to his proxy enslavement to special interests through the mechanism of the state. This risk has been known for a long time.

In 1913 Woodrow Wilson wrote: “If the government is to tell big business men how to run their business, then don’t you see that big business men have to get closer to the government even than they are now? Don’t you see that they must capture the government, in order not to be restrained too much by it? Must capture the government? They have already captured it.”

And so it goes that as the perpetually wrong liberal left and self styled progressives continue to repeat the childish demands for undefined "change" and ignorant criticisms of the social structures that gave them the very opportunity to indulge their fantasies of self actualization .... the actual results achieved are the exact opposite of what they so fervently believed.

Now after more than 100 years of failed socialist experiments you'd think they would begin to understand this cause and effect relationship between asking for more government and losing any chance at all of being able to exercise self determination.

In this context there seems to be only two possible explanations for this behaviour... the first being that it is willful self destructive behaviour ... the second that it is deliberate malevolence.

Batshit crazy or just plain evil.

Know your enemy.
