MSM Still AWOL On Climategate

Even as the Climategate scandal grows and AGW theory is exposed as the hoax it is, Obama, using executive powers, is  forcing a “carbon-controlling regime on us”, a regime that would never have passed in Congress.

Now more than ever, we need a media to help expose the fraud, instead of primarily alternative media like talk radio and right wing bloggers. Where is the MSM? Even the state run media in the UK is doing a better job of uncovering the truth.

See Ace for the latest Climate news, (which is coming from the British press):

CRU’s Former Head Phil Jones: Well, I Guess Maybe There Hasn’t Been Any Warming Since 1995, And Oh Yeah, Maybe The Medieval Warm Period and Subsequent Periods Were Warmer Than Things Are Now

Even without the MSM’s help, the AGW scam has people wanting heads to roll, influential people even:

Donald Trump Wants Al Gore’s Nobel Peace Prize Stripped

According to Newsbusters,

“With the coldest winter ever recorded, with snow setting record levels up and down the coast, the Nobel committee should take the Nobel Prize back, ” Trump recently told members of his Westchester, New York, country club according to the New York Post.

When he was through, the crowd 500 gave him a standing O.

Over at the American Thinker, S Fred Singer is predicting The end of the IPCC.

We learn from the e-mails that the ClimateGate gang was able to “hide the decline” [of global temperature] by applying what they termed as “tricks,” and that they intimidated editors and forced out those judged to be “uncooperative.” No doubt, thorough investigations, now in progress or planned, will disclose the full range of their nefarious activities. But it is clear that this small cabal was able to convince much of the world that climate disasters were impending — unless drastic steps were taken. Not only were most of the media, public, and politicians misled, but so were many scientists, national academies of science, and professional organizations — and even the Norwegian committee that awarded the 2007 Peace Prize to the IPCC and Al Gore, the chief apostle of climate alarmism.

In this enterprise, the group was aided not only by environmental zealots, anti-technology Luddites, utopian one-worlders, and population-control fanatics, but also by bureaucrats, businesses, brokers and bankers, who had learned how to game the system and profit from government grants and subsidies for exotic schemes to produce “carbon-free” energy and from the trading of carbon permits. Hundreds of billions have already been wasted — most of this in transfers of tax revenues to a favored few.

Meanwhile, in liberal Lalaland, as the science continues to unravel, Howard Dean charges:

Republicans don’t believe in science

Which is something the left likes to do: accuse their critics of being ignorant rubes who have no idea what they’re talking about. It’s a strategy that often works for them, as many people sign on to their cockamamie theories just so they can be “enlightened”, too.

But Ed Morrissy points out a little problem with Dean’s verbiage:

He vents his frustration at Republicans who refuse to adopt the belief system of global warming, annoyed at the jibes from skeptics over the snowstorm that has socked in the mid-Atlantic region this month.

“One of the most disturbing things about the Republican Party over the last couple of decades is that they just don’t believe in science any more. And that is not an approach that is likely to generate any kind of creative thinking…People who use snowstorms as an example of why global warming doesn’t exist don’t understand the science and they don’t care.”

Actually, we do respect science. What we don’t do is adopt belief systems based on hypotheses from so-called scientists that use incomplete and unreliable predictive modeling, include wild conjectures as fact, pass off student dissertations as reliable research, and accept advocacy claims without testing, all while conspiring to hide contradictory evidence and scheme to ruin the careers of those who question them. Science requires that claims get tested, that predictive models that fail get discarded, that data and process remain open for review, and that critical thinking get welcomed instead of demonized.

The jig is up for the AGW hoaxsters. Someone alert the media.

We have a childish, petulant, insecure, unprofessional media. It has to be noted again that the British media is covering this story well — even left-wing outfits like the Guardian and the statist-establishment-left BBC.

The science is settled, damn it!!!

Joe Biden Claims He Always Knew The Surge Would Work

We live in the internet age now, which can be awkward for politicians who are asked to explain past statements, caught on video. On Face The Nation, yesterday, Biden said he never once doubted that a surge in troops would “help settle things down”??? This Naked Emperor News video exposes Biden’s shameless b.s.

According to Sheriff Joe, we would have been airlifting troops off of buildings in the Green Zone if we had persisted with the surge.

Well, we did persist, and all of the dire predictions Democrats like Biden and Obama made, never happened. In fact, the opposite happened – things “settled down”, enough to bring them home on the Bush administration’s scheduled timetable, which of course, Biden has had the gall to call one of the great achievements of the Obama administration.

The “loyal opposition” despicably played politics with a war, and now is trying to claim “responsibility” for its successful outcome.

Transcript via Face the Nation:

JOE BIDEN: Look, we’re not– we’re not– we’re not taking credit, we had to take responsibility.
When we took responsibility for the mess that were handed to us at the end of last year, an
awful lot of very informed news people like you, Bob, were wondering whether or not that
country could be put together.

From the beginning, I’ve been on your show so many times in the previous years, and my
mantra was: This requires a political solution. I never once doubted that additional American
forces would, in fact, meet the military objective of settling things down. But nothing would
matter, we would not be able to leave unless there was a political accommodation.
What we did and we didn’t responsibly from the day we took office is put that in motion. I have
been to Iraq four times this year, fourteen times already. I have met with every single solitary
one of the players in Iraq–Sunni, Shiate, Kurd, Christian. And we have been able to be a
catalyst for them moving from settling their political differences on boundaries, on territory, on
oil, etcetera, from the battle field to the political arena.

And so, I think, we’ve managed it very, very well. I think we’re going to be able to be out of Iraq,
with all of our combat troops–ninety thousand, by the end of August. I think we’ll be out leaving
behind an electorate that had just put in place a parliament that is viewed as legitimate across
the board. And we’ll be able to get out of Iraq at the end of 2011 leaving behind a stable

Now anybody who tells you, including Dick Cheney, that they knew how they were going to get
there January of last year, I would find it somewhat surprising. I give him– I don’t care who gets
credit. My generic point is–we have managed this very well thus far. The Iraqis have done really
good work. It this works it’ll be a great credit to the Iraqis and a great credit to our military and
civilian leadership that we’ve moved to the point that a nation that was in chaos is now a nation
not needing American forces, having a economic and–

R (overlapping): Well–

JOE BIDEN: –and political relationship with United States and a democracy.

BOB SCHIEFFER: –do you– do you– do you think also that George Bush would also need little
thanks for that? I mean, does he share in the credit or not?

JOE BIDEN: Well, sure. I– I’m happy to thank George Bush.

He had to be shamed into allowing George Bush partial credit for winning the war, they undermined at every opportunity!

BOB SCHIEFFER (overlapping): Okay.

JOE BIDEN: I like George Bush, but I– I think– the thing– and all the– if you go back and think
about it–


JOE BIDEN: –we’ve been on so many of your programs, it was constantly–what is their political

Yes, but of course the Bush administration had a political as well as a military solution, and yes it was predictable that we would have our troops out by the agreed-to timetable. And the Obama administration was not handed “a mess”  in Iraq.

One of the reasons the right wing blogosphere declared November 22, Victory in Iraq Day, back in Nov. 2008, was because we knew the MSM was never going to give President Bush the credit for winning the war:

I don’t think that even the most hardened cynics among us at the time would have guessed that the Obama administration would eventually try to take credit for it.

Just shameless.
