Hurricane Irma And How The Left
Has Politicized Even The Weather

Investors Business Daily, by Douglas McKinnon

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 9/12/2017 5:41:42 AM

As I write this, I am on the southwest coast of Florida and the bands of Hurricane Irma are intensifying. In my estimation, a perfect time to stress that Rush Limbaugh was well within his rights to question the motivations of some in the media and the various weather services with regard to Irma and Hurricane "forecasts," and Hurricane "hype." In the past, I have equated weather "forecasters" to political pundits and economists. They all factor a great deal of guesswork into their predictions with the weather forecasters often coming up a poor third in terms of accuracy. A number

Say what you wish about the Truth Detector, the Doctor of Democracy and the Bwana of Bombast, Rush is almost always right. His house is practically ON the ocean.

I had relatives who didn´t know which way to run, and ended up in the thick of things anyway. My brother wanted us to head for N. Ga., but ironically, we have had less of a power outage than he has and we´re in NE Fla. We got lots of wind and unbelievable rain, but that was it. Limbs down and trashed yard. However, the storm surge and incredible tides have flooded much of our area close to water. People ask why don´t we evacuate, and the answer is it´s often worse to be a refugee than to stick it out.

In college my son was roommates with a meteorology major and that´s when I learned the dirty secret of forecasting limits. While they all pretend to know what´s going to happen for the coming week, that young man said 3 days out is the current limit and he wouldn´t vouch for day 3.

In my city we have one real meteorologist on TV who doesn´t hype the weather (very important in tornado alley). I think his station has found that being reliable brings viewers because it´s #1 all the time.

Our local radio station depends upon a "weatherman" who is so far Left I refer to him as Comrade. He continually slips in the Climate Change meme. I have zero respect for him since he sounds so "insincere" when he inserts the Climate Change dogma, but as a Leftist weatherman he feels compelled to please his Leftist bosses.

It was a long time ago, maybe 30+ years, but didn´t the US Weather Service get sued for making a bad prediction and some East Coast fishermen went out to sea when they shouldn´t have, based on erroneous weather predictions? And, especially after Katrina(a major political event), hurricane hype got ratcheted way up, I think just so hurricanes can be used as a cudgel for bad governmenting. Throw in global warming and you have a nasty witch´s brew for finally doing something about the weather. You blame gov´t.

The left has been politicizing the weather since the 90´s when Manbearpig decided to jump on the gravy train that is the globull warming scam.

I live in the greater DC area and vividly remember a terrible ice storm which kept us from even stepping out of our doors for fear of slipping and falling. The Washington Times ran a political cartoon showing Gore with his feet buried in huge cubes of ice with icices hanging all over him and holding a sign which said, "Stop Global Warming!"

As #3 said, they can´t even predict 3 days out much less 100 years.

Fighting Fire with Fire: A Republican
Finally Co-opts Alinsky´s Rules for Radicals
American Thinker, by Brian C. Joondeph    Original Article
Posted By: magnante- 9/25/2017 9:21:27     Post Reply
Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals is considered the bible for the left, the Democrat Party playbook. Hillary Clinton wrote her college thesis on Alinsky’s book. Barack Obama is a disciple of this guide for community organizing. The reality is that the “Rules” are applicable to any political cause or movement, not just one on the left side of the political spectrum. (snip) In Alinsky’s own words, “In this book we are concerned with how to create mass organizations to seize power and give it to the people.” Who else in the GOP might say similar words? Paul Ryan? Mitch McConnell?

Alejandro Villanueva´s courageous - and lonely -

What a sorry state of affairs it is that standing up for the American flag, rather than taking a knee, is now what´s unusual and newsworthy. That´s where we´re at now, with Pittsburgh Steelers left tackle Alejandro Villanueva making headlines for courageously standing up for the flag during the playing of the national anthem while the rest of his teammates huddled back in the locker room. Villanueva, recall, is a West Point-educated Army Ranger, and an Afghanistan war veteran. He served three tours of duty and was awarded the Bronze Star for valor. He was known, even before this event, as

It has been said that you could get a declaration of war against Canada if you claimed it was for the children. While Jimmy Kimmel’s personal story of his child’s medical needs is compelling, his exploitation of that story to advance lies about the Graham-Cassidy ObamaCare replacement is shameful. Not only does he lie to a national audience about Graham-Cassidy’s impact on those with preexisting conditions, he stooped to calling one Louisiana senator a liar and the other an “inbred”. Kimmel called the ObamaCare replacement bill’s co-author, Louisiana GOP Sen. Bill Cassidy, a liar after Cassidy appeared on Kimmel’s late

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has been doing the leftist media interview circuit recently, pressing his peculiar thesis that professional (i.e., paid) scientists are a superior class of humans whose conclusions are intrinsically beyond reproach and must therefore be accepted blindly by unscientific lunks like you. In each of these interviews, a non-climate scientist asks a series of predetermined questions designed to elicit rehearsed responses from the non-climate scientist Tyson, the upshot of which is that (a) people who question man-made global warming are anti-scientific fools driven by irrational agendas; (b) scientific

It was a classic confrontation last night on Tucker Carlson’s show, as a Hollywood heavyweight faced tough questioning on the consistency of his views. Rob Reiner is a member of the hereditary Hollywood elite, cursed forever by a vivid role that defined him as an actor. Reiner had the smarts and connections to leave acting as principal activity and focus on writing, directing, and producing. He created some classics, including The Princess Bride, Stand by Me, and This is Spinal Tap. He founded Castle Rock Entertainment. This is no dummy, despite his politics. As Donald Trump did, Reiner inherited some advantages

With little need for intelligence reports to do her job, former Obama United Nations Ambassador Samantha Power had an abnormally ravenous appetite for spying, especially when it came to Americans.

How to account for the scorched-earth hatred of Donald Trump? He inspires a darkly fanatical dislike, disapproval, and disgust in his most ardent detractors. He is a distillation for millions of unhappy Americans of all things repugnant, repulsive, and wretched. The fever pitch at which he has been mocked, ridiculed, condemned, and threatened is beyond anything anyone in living memory has been subject to – let alone a sitting American president.

It’s safe to say that none of his many enemies in the global elites anticipated an intellectual challenge from Donald Trump. He doesn’t look or talk or act the way they think an intellectual should. Yet somehow, he has placed them in a box. In his UN debut, he challenged the intellectual basis of the world order they are working towards. He personally addressed many of the political leaders in the audience when he said: …you, as the leaders of your countries will always, and should always, put your countries first.

Well, well, well. Hope the "destroy Trump" media enjoys the taste of crow now that it has been revealed that, yes, Virginia, Trump Tower and its occupants who were in contact with both candidate and President-elect Trump, including one Paul Manafort, were in fact wiretapped as Trump claimed.

If true, this is a blockbuster, that vindicates one of President Trump’s most famous and most roundly criticized tweets, and which may have far-reaching implications. (snip) The information was fed to Robert Mueller’s team that has been searching for a crime. It was the Comey-led FBI in the Lynch-led DoJ, in the Obama presidency, that reportedly used the FISA Court to obtain a warrant, quite possibly based on the phony dossier, that has provided material to get Manafort and pressure him to find something to squeal about and catch a higher-up. The legitimacy of that warrant now is in question.

President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Trump continued his Twitter tirade and called for an NFL boycott. ´If NFL fans refuse to go to games until

CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,

As more and more leaks about the ongoing “Russian collusion” witch hunt by Robert Mueller appear in print, it seems to me that if Russia had been trying to erode our faith in our institutions, the Deep State is accomplishing what Russia failed to do. The Obama claque’s efforts were initially intended to help Clinton when they thought she would win and no one would know about their crimes. Then they continued the unlawful spying to cover up their role in the worst case of misuse of federal power in our history, to effect the removal or emasculation of the President,

Months before, their “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack, featuring songs written and/or performed by the Australian trio, had won a Grammy for album of the year.

Disco was king, and the Bee Gees — brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, clad in white suits and flashing gold chains — were its ambassadors.
