Palestinians: Murderers, Misanthropes and Thieves.


One does have to wonder why the Palestinians do not seem to get anywhere even though they receive millions of dollars in foreign aid as well as money from well meaning cretins and sheeple. Their entire society appears to wallow in the "Hate the Israelis at all cost" mentality, which is about as helpful to their economy as letting off a nuclear device in their own back yard.

They have concentrated all their efforts in trying to destroy the Israeli Nation, which is the only democratic one in the middle east and yet they claim that they are victims when they are in actual fact the abusers. Nothing the Isaelis do for that nasty little state is acceptable and yet they continue on the same hate path they have for the last 50 more years which has turned that corrupt country into a hell hole of murderers and malcontents. That entire country is a waste of good space and oxygen as they refuse to work out any type of agreeable comprimise too their 800+ year old complaints. If you think that they are fighting about the now, you are in for a major history lesson.

Romney Comments at Fundraiser Outrage Palestinians


31 Jul 2012, 11:23 AM 

So the Palestinians are “outraged” that Mitt Romney intimated that their culture may be partially responsible for their economic woes? Romney, speaking to Jewish donors in Jerusalem, said:

As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is about $21,000, and compare that with the GDP per capita just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority, which is more like $10,000 per capita, you notice such a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality … And as I come here and I look out over this city and consider the accomplishments of the people of this nation, I recognize the power of at least culture and a few other things.
Romney also cited Israel’s innovative business climate, the Jewish history of thriving in difficult circumstances and the "hand of providence.”
Predictably, the Palestinians screamed bloody murder. Saeb Erekat, a senior aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, said:
It is a racist statement and this man doesn't realize that the Palestinian economy cannot reach its potential because there is an Israeli occupation. It seems to me this man lacks information, knowledge, vision and understanding of this region and its people. He also lacks knowledge about the Israelis themselves. I have not heard any Israeli official speak about cultural superiority.
It’s too bad the Israelis don’t. The corrupt Palestinian Authority has been confiscating money meant for its people for decades. And just which “culture” was it that danced in the streets on 9/11, killed Israeli soldiers, and ripped the bodies apart to they could show their arms soaked in blood as they held them outside the window, and routinely used children inculcated in hate to strap bombs to their chests so they could commit murder?
As far as the Palestinian claiming that the Israeli ‘Occupation” is the source of their economic woes, try this: when the Israelis evacuated Gaza in 2005, American Jewish donors bought more than 3000 greenhouses at the cost of $14 million to donate them to the Palestinian authority. Then Palestinian looters ransacked the buildings. Even the Palestinian guards were disgusted; one said, “We’ve tried to stop as many people as we can, but they’re like locusts.”
Then three months later, the Palestinians, while allowing the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israel, had the gall to ask the Israelis who had run the greenhouses before they were kicked out for advice on how to make them work.
There has been plenty of money poured into the coffers of Palestinian leaders, but they prefer to pocket the money and foment hatred against Israel instead of taking care of their people. The Palestinian Authority has been corrupt for decades, and Mahmoud Abbas is no different from his predecessors in keeping the money for himself.

The Olympics beginning to Suck ever more...



I use to enjoy the Olympics back a few years ago, when it was a combination of amateur athletes and politics was nowhere to be seen except ofcourse when those lunatics from communist countries got involved. They saw no issue with dragging children from the arms of their parents and drugging their population, forcing them into training regimes that you would not put an animal through, let alone a human being. But as with all those communist countries, the metal count was somehow a deciding factor on how superior their countries are or were, most have disappeared thank goodness. The East Germans were one of the worst, where we witnessed a former athlete stating that her life was completely destroyed by the drugs they forced down her throat in order to insure a dishonest win. This was before the drug tests arrived as that was becoming a major problem as well,

Peter Hitchens has a few things to say and I agree with some. Apart from the fact that the Olympics is now about greed, self promotion, selfishness, logos and advertising rights. One wonder if there is any room left for the athletes or their supporters or even their family members who have made it possible for the existence of the competitor in the first place. Where is the consideration for them, one may have to ask that now as members were told to bugger off from one venue even though there were plenty of empty seats available. A major cockup I know but one that is becoming more and more common as the Olympic gestapo go about ensuring that the local butcher takes down his five ringed sausage display as it infringes on the billions they hope to cream off the local sheeple.

Join the smiley Cult of the Five Circles? Sorry, but I have a democratic right to be bored (and I'm exercising it while I still can)

This is Peter Hitchens' Mail on Sunday column
AY90404066LONDON ENGLAND - Enthusiasm is compulsory only in totalitarian dictatorships. Anywhere else, we are free to be keen if we want to, and bored if we want to.
So I wish people would stop telling me that I should enjoy the Olympics, or be proud of them, or think that they will in some way benefit this country.
But they won’t stop telling me. Hardly a day goes by without another previously independent mind surrendering to this pseudo-religion of obligatory smiles.
And that makes me suspicious. What is this strange cult? In the end, the Olympics is nothing more than a large athletics meeting.
Before Hitler and Dr Goebbels made it into a torch-lit and grandiose spectacle, you could be in the same city as the Games and barely notice.
Are we really that interested? And if we are, are we interested for good reasons?


We have the other article as well 

What the Papers didn’t Say -and What They Did

Meanwhile, on the subject of the legitimacy and reasonableness of my view of the Olympic ceremony, let me quote to you from an article by Chris Blackhurst, a former colleague of mine, and no fool,  now Editor of the Independent newspaper. You can read the whole thing here.

Chris (who I do not think would describe himself as a man of the right)  said : ‘Did I think I was being preached to? Was I aware that the director was ramming his vision of a leftie Nirvana down all our throats? Yes to both. Did I mind? Not in the least’

He also conceded :’There could have been more use words, more acknowledgement of our contributions to the arts and our faith in individual liberty’(these are my principal complaints about what was lacking. But he added ’This was an occasion for television, more than those lucky enough to be present’.

He makes a curious comment about multiculturalism, mistaking it – as so many seem to do – for multiracialism, a wholly different thing. He said ‘swathes of the population, not those perhaps in the stockbroker belt or secure in their gated communities, those of different ethnic origin living side by side is how it is’. Let me say it again. Multiculturalism is nothing to do with race. It is to do with abandoning the idea of one unifying national culture to which all are expected to belong, and choosing instead to promote a series of solitudes with their backs turned upon each other (some readers say, trying to be clever, that we no longer have much of a British culture to offer, but that is precisely because we abandoned it so long ago). Those who have sought to defend a unified national culture have been, and are still being, smeared as racial bigots, when this is the opposite of the truth. I am sad, but not amazed, that this still needs to be explained.

The Robot. Four Meters Tall, Weight Four Tonnes.


I may have been watching too many Terminator movies, as the sight of this thing would frighten the crap out of anyone let alone me, let alone any fan of SkyNet. Freaky or what !!
A JAPANESE electronics company has unveiled a 4m super-robot that can be controlled by an iPhone. But be careful with the jokes if you are phoning in instructions, as the robot, made by Suidobashi Heavy Industry in Tokyo, brings a whole new meaning to the phrase "trigger-happy". "Kuratas" is fitted with a futuristic weapons system, including a Gatling gun capable of shooting 6000 BB bullets a minute, which fires when the pilot in its one-man cockpit smiles. The four-tonne robot is going on sale for £900,000 ($1.35 million), but you will have to pay extra for the cupholder. The robot can be operated either through a pilot, who mans the controls in a cockpit in its chest cavity, or remotely using the touchscreen of any smartphone connected to the 3G network.

Linkaged...

Prof. Richard Muller was NEVER a Skeptic.


Fascinating how these AGW hysterians continually foul their own nest. Not is Muller not a skeptic and never was but know he is a marked man for being a compulsive liar.

Here we have it with his own words from his own mouth. Muller lies.

http://www.populartechnology.net/2012/06/truth-about-richard-muller.html

I was never a skeptic” – Richard Muller, 2011

If Al Gore reaches more people and convinces the world that global warming is real, even if he does it through exaggeration and distortion – which he does, but he’s very effective at it – then let him fly any plane he wants.” – Richard Muller, 2008

There is a consensus that global warming is real. …it’s going to get much, much worse.” – Richard Muller, 2008

“Let me be clear. My own reading of the literature and study of paleoclimate suggests strongly that carbon dioxide from burning of fossil fuels will prove to be the greatest pollutant of human history. It is likely to have severe and detrimental effects on global climate.” – Richard Muller, 2003

The BEST Result: Muller Fails to Confess the Obvious.

Anyone notice a hockey shtick at all ?

If only the BBC could be trusted to come up with some truth instead re-peddling the usual CAGW hysterics. The usual "we are all going to fry" caper has actually run it's course and we only have a few of the hangers on trying their luck to cash in on the so called "scoop".

The recalcitrant Richard Muller has already been badly beaten down by Judy Curry, who was a co-author of one of the papers that was supposed to clear things up once and for all. When Muller hit the MSM with those results, which were somewhat questionable, Curry lashed out and told all and sundry that she does not support the final analysis. Oops, Muller left to rot in his own freshly created mire. Here that saga continues as we have Muller doing it all over again. One would have imagined that one would learn from previous cock-ups, but not Muller.

Ex-sceptic says climate change is down to humans

Climate 'hockey stick' 
 The results confirm the warming trend seen by other groups using different methods
 
 
A formerly sceptical climate scientist says human activity is causing the Earth to warm, as a new study confirms earlier results on rising temperatures.
In a US newspaper opinion piece, Prof Richard Muller says: "Call me a converted sceptic."
Muller leads the Berkeley Earth Project, which is using new methods and some new data to investigate the claims made by other climate researchers.
Their latest study confirms the warming trend seen by other groups.

Is this the best they can do or is it just the easiest way to promote the AGW lies and misinformation. Muller has been on a few MSM sites over the last few days, claiming that he was once a skeptic, low and behold, he has changed his mind. There is definitely more money in lying about the climate than there is in actually doing one's job properly as a scientist and do the research properly without encroaching one's political views into it.
Strangely enough, His previous paper was recommended to be trashed, shredded and flipped into the garbage bin, as it was the work of someone's imagination than actual fact. Anyway, we have these pathetic CAGW hysterical high priests all vying for the research dollars with plenty of pocket money to boot. Too bad for Muller though as the arse is just about to drop out of the whole farce and he has left his timing a little too long. He is demonstrating that astrophysics does not train one to being practical or honest or truthful but instead, seeks the money in order to sell their soul to the highest bidder.

From the site of Professor Ross McKitrick
BERKELEY EARTH STUDY REFEREE REPORTS: On September 8 2011 I was asked by Journal of Geophysical Research to be a reviewer for a paper by Charlotte Wickham et al. presenting the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature ("BEST") analysis of the effect of urbanization on land surface temperatures. This work is mainly associated with Richard Muller and his various coauthors.  I submitted my review just before the end of September 2011, outlining what I saw were serious shortcomings in their methods and arguing that their analysis does not establish valid grounds for the conclusions they assert. I suggested the authors be asked to undertake a major revision.
   In October 2011, despite the papers not being accepted, Richard Muller launched a major international publicity blitz announcing the results of the "BEST" project. I wrote to him and his coauthor Judy Curry objecting to the promotional initiative since the critical comments of people like me were locked up under confidentiality rules, and the papers had not been accepted for publication. Richard stated that he felt there was no alternative since the studies would be picked up by the press anyway. Later, when the journal turned the paper down and asked for major revisions, I sought permission from Richard to release my review. He requested that I post it without indicating I was a reviewer for JGR. Since that was not feasible I simply kept it confidential.
   On March 8 2012 I was asked by JGR to review a revised version of the Wickham et al. paper. I submitted my review at the end of March. The authors had made very few changes and had not addressed any of the methodological problems, so I recommended the paper not be published. I do not know what the journal's decision was, but it is 4 months later and I can find no evidence on the BEST website that this or any other BEST project paper has been accepted for publication. [Update July 30: JGR told me "This paper was rejected and the editor recommended that the author resubmit it as a new paper."]
   On July 29 2012 Richard Muller launched another publicity blitz (e.g. here and here) claiming, among other things, that "In our papers we demonstrate that none of these potentially troublesome effects [including those related to urbanization and land surface changes] unduly biased our conclusions." Their failure to provide a proper demonstration of this point had led me to recommend against publishing their paper. This places me in an awkward position since I made an undertaking to JGR to respect the confidentiality of the peer review process, but I have reason to believe Muller et al.'s analysis does not support the conclusions he is now asserting in the press.
   I take the journal peer review process seriously and I dislike being placed in the position of having to break a commitment I made to JGR, but the "BEST" team's decision to launch another publicity blitz effectively nullifies any right they might have had to confidentiality in this matter. So I am herewith releasing my referee reports. The first, from September 2011, is here and the second, from March 2012 is here.

The Australian Labour Party Denial Methodology at Work.

Never before has such complete and total incompetence ever wielded the office of Prime minister than Gillard and her bunch of misanthropes. Never before has any government before been relegated to such low voter numbers and all because of what they claim is a reformist agenda. Bullshit, it is not any where near any reformists agendas, as these clones and drones are incapable of performing even the most simplest task of running a political office. Every thing they touch, they screw up, ever effort they make turns into a farce of gigantic proportions and every word they utter has to be fed through a lie detector as they appear to be incapable of telling the truth, about anything.

Not only is this government installed by Unions in Australia, funded by unions, they are union members and have never ever had any experience in running a business and they deny input from families or businesses. After witnessing how totally and completely corrupt those unions are, stealing millions of dollars from members, as has been demonstrated already. The den of thieves also decide who will be in power and they have selected the incompetant and robotic Gillard as their very latest leader. Gillard has been implicated as being a intimate friend and solicitor in the office of the Union thief who stole over half a million dollars and has not been charged or faced court or paid a single cent of it back.

Unions are totally corrupt and the Australian Labour Party draws members from those unions and then claim to be working for all Australians. We can only see them working for themselves, enriching themselves every way possible and corrupting the entire society in it's process. They are an absolute disgrace.

I would not trust these clown to organise a piss-up in a brewery as they would screw that up as well.

Govt is 'losing some paint', Conroy says

Cabinet minister Stephen Conroy has admitted the Gillard government has suffered in the polls because of its reform agenda.
The minister was commenting on a report that Australia's ambassador to the United States Kim Beazley told American politicians that Labor could be left with a meagre 30 seats after the next general election.
The briefing was attended by representatives from the Democrat and Republican parties, state and defence department officials, industry representatives and media from both countries, News Limited papers reported on Tuesday.
The briefing was part of the annual four-day Australian American Leadership dialogue earlier in July.
Senator Conroy acknowledged the government faced a challenge in turning the polls around.
"We've got a situation where the government is introducing major reforms and we are losing some paint," he told ABC Television.
The main challenge for the government was to explain why it was introducing reforms such as the national broadband network, the carbon tax and a national disability insurance scheme.
"But we're determined to keep making the right decisions (by) doing the right thing by Australia," Senator Conroy said.
But Trade Minister Craig Emerson doubts whether Mr Beazley actually made the comments.
"I wasn't at the lunch (but) I've just spoken to someone who was," he told Sky News.
"He didn't hear any such statement."
The discussions were supposed to be confidential, the minister said.
"This is the second breach of that confidentiality," he said, referring to a report that Vice-President Joe Biden had mistakenly referred to Opposition Leader Tony Abbott as "prime minister" at another meeting in the US.

Obama Second Term: Shut Down Opposition Media.

Never any opportunity of denying how profoundly good he is at it.
Obviously Cannot Handle the Truth.

Another demonstration on the dishonesty and lying that the current Obama administration indulges in. Not only are they content with spreading the Great Global Warming Hoax, they also want to shut down any opposition to it. Yep, shut up the critics and the reason why is because they know they are already living the lie and do not want the truth coming out. Why else would a pseudo president like Obama, who has no regard for the law or due legal process, wants to shut down anyone who dares speak against his and their corruption and obvious misrepresentation of the truth.

This is the type of information they want to hide -

Global Warming: The Farce. Temperature Stations Wrong.

This is the lessons they teach other left wing loonies. If in doubt, have a listen to that lunatic NancyPelosi and wonder if that woman is not suffering from some unidentifiable condition as every word it utters just does not make sense. They are usually a disconnected jumble that only people suffering from that same condition. I have not heard her string more than four words together without wandering off somewhere else. Truly remarkable.

Rush, Hannity, Savage face 'death by Obama'

Talk radio could receive fatal blow if president wins 2nd term

PALM BEACH, Fla. – The radio shows of broadcasting giants such as Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage and many others could be drastically changed if Barack Obama wins a second term in office, says a brand-new book forecasting the president’s agenda through 2016.
According to “Fool Me Twice: Obama’s Shocking Plans for the Next Four Years Exposed” by Aaron Klein and Brenda J. Elliott, Obama’s advisers are so adamant about silencing voices who oppose their position on man-made global warming, they are “outrageously” recommending Obama “reinstate the anti-free speech Fairness Doctrine in order to shut up some of global warming theory’s most effective challengers.”


The Fairness Doctrine required broadcasters to give equal time to opposing viewpoints on controversial issues, effectively making political talk radio unsustainable for any local station.

Purchase an autographed copy of “Fool Me Twice” by Aaron Klein and Brenda Elliott and receive a FREE copy of their New York Times bestseller “The Manchurian President.”

Critics charge the doctrine is as an attempt to regulate news and talk radio, thus violating First Amendment rights.
It was brought to an end in the 1980s under the direction of President Ronald Reagan’s Federal Communications Commission.
But in 2011, the Presidential Climate Action Project report resurrected the idea.
Reads the PCAP report: “National discourse today is tainted – and in some cases poisoned – by unbalanced ideological use of the public airwaves … To improve and better inform public discourse, it is time for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to reinstate the Fairness Doctrine.”
The authors of “Fool Me Twice” note that “President Obama’s advisory commission, it seems, cannot stomach the public raising questions about the ‘science’ underlying global warming theory and the entire green agenda. Never mind the stunning revelation that much of the so-called settled science is, in fact, questionable, and that certain politically motivated scientists conspired, with evident success, to suppress that knowledge. For PCAP, the public, along with dissenting scientists, simply have no right to air such questions.”

The Stench of Endless Presidential Corruption.

One does not have to search far or wide to witness more of the Obama Administration corrupt behaviour. One wonders why the majority of this type of behaviour is strictly a left wing, rights to passage or is it just because they have no morals or honesty in a single fibre of their body. Not only has Obama used his presidential options of by-passing Congress to introduce illegal laws that places the Constitution in the rubbish bin. But he has also demonstrated beyond doubt that if one pays a few bucks into his re-election campaign, they can be guaranteed to be paid back in millions of taxpayers dollars, which he has done already.

There should be a mechanism of bringing leaders like Obama and anyone for that matter, in front of the people and questioned. They should also be held accountable for failing to uphold the constitution of the US which he and others have not done. They are as close to being criminals as anyone can be and they should face the justice system who has also failed to even check if Obama was eligible for election to begin with. The entire system as well as the election of Obama stinks to high heaven. It has the stench of corruption regardless of where you look.

Federal Court finds Obama appointees interfered with New Black Panther prosecution

July 30, 2012 

A federal court in Washington, DC, held last week that political appointees appointed by President Obama did interfere with the Department of Justice’s prosecution of the New Black Panther Party.
The ruling came as part of a motion by the conservative legal watch dog group Judicial Watch, who had sued the DOJ in federal court to enforce a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for documents pertaining to the the New Black Panthers case. Judicial Watch had secured many previously unavailable documents through their suit against DOJ and were now suing for attorneys’ fees.
Obama’s DOJ had claimed Judicial Watch was not entitled to attorney’s fees since “none of the records produced in this litigation evidenced any political interference whatsoever in” how the DOJ handled the New Black Panther Party case. But United States District Court Judge Reggie Walton disagreed. Citing a “series of emails” between Obama political appointees and career Justice lawyers, Walton writes:
The documents reveal that political appointees within DOJ were conferring about the status and resolution of the New Black Panther Party case in the days preceding the DOJ’s dismissal of claims in that case, which would appear to contradict Assistant Attorney General Perez’s testimony that political leadership was not involved in that decision. Surely the public has an interest in documents that cast doubt on the accuracy of government officials’ representations regarding the possible politicization of agency decision-making.

In sum, the Court concludes that three of the four fee entitlement factors weigh in favor of awarding fees to Judicial Watch. Therefore, Judicial Watch is both eligible and entitled to fees and costs, and the Court must now consider the reasonableness of Judicial Watch’s requested award.
The New Black Panthers case stems from a Election Day 2008 incident where two members of the New Black Panther Party were filmed outside a polling place intimidating voters and poll watchers by brandishing a billy club. Justice Department lawyers investigated the case, filed charges, and when the Panthers failed to respond, a federal court in Philadelphia entered a “default” against all the Panthers defendants. But after Obama was sworn in, the Justice Department reversed course, dismissed charges against three of the defendants, and let the fourth off with a narrowly tailored restraining order.
“The Court’s decision is another piece of evidence showing the Obama Justice Department is run by individuals who have a problem telling the truth,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said. “The decision shows that we can’t trust the Obama Justice Department to fairly administer our nation’s voting and election laws.”

Mark Steyn on the Forces of Tolerance.



Mark Steyn can be counted on, to at least, tell the truth and stand on some principles, which ofcourse left wingers find impossible to comprehend. Take for example the lunacy regarding Chick-a-fil restaurants and the owners confession that he stands for the family and marriage between a man and a women. An attitude which is apparently now VERBOTTEN in the left wing morality free attitude.

Their longing to promote gays, lesbians and other nefarious behaviour has to be shoved down the throats of everyone. It is not a matter of tolerance, it is now a matter of politics. To the left wing mentality which claim that tolerance is their bicycle of pride, but that carries their hypocrisy, they have demonstarted that that tolerance is only tolerated is one thinks the same way their mindless mentality operates. It's all or nothing, you are for us or you will be attacked and slaughtered just like in George Orwell's "1984" book, which was supposed to be a work of fiction but has become the left wingers bible on how to force people to behalf the same way they do. You know the routine, shoot off at the mouth about anything totally and completely ludicrous and then force everyone else to follow or else threaten their life, family, their job or worse.

This has nothing to do with tolerance but a lot to do with anarchy.

Mark Steyn: Don't cross the forces of tolerance

The city's mayor, Rahm Emanuel, agrees with the Alderman: Chick-fil-A does not represent "Chicago values" – which is true if by "Chicago values" you mean machine politics, AIDS-conspiracy-peddling pastors and industrial-scale black youth homicide rates. But, before he was mayor, Rahm Emanuel was President Obama's chief of staff. Until the president's recent "evolution," the Obama administration held the same position on gay marriage as Chick-fil-A. Would Alderman Moreno have denied Barack Obama the right to open a chicken restaurant in the First Ward? Did Rahm Emanuel quit the Obama administration on principle? Don't be ridiculous. Mayor Emanuel is a former ballet dancer, and when it's politically necessary he can twirl on a dime.
Meanwhile, fellow mayor Tom Menino announced that Chick-fil-A would not be opening in his burg anytime soon. "If they need licenses in the city, it will be very difficult," said His Honor. If you've just wandered in in the middle of the column, this guy Menino isn't the mayor of Soviet Novosibirsk or Kampong Cham under the Khmer Rouge, but of Boston, Mass. Nevertheless, he shares the commissars' view that in order to operate even a modest and politically inconsequential business it is necessary to demonstrate that one is in full ideological compliance with party orthodoxy. "There is no place for discrimination on Boston's Freedom Trail," Mayor Menino thundered in his letter to Mr. Cathy, "and no place for your company alongside it." No, sir. On Boston's Freedom Trail, you're free to march in ideological lockstep with the city authorities – or else. Hard as it is to believe, there was a time when Massachusetts was a beacon of liberty: the shot heard round the world, and all that. Now it fires Bureau of Compliance permit-rejection letters round the world.

Boring Bama, you did not make that torch go out, did you ?


And if that does not convince about the obvious hypocrisy and hate. Have a gander at this one...
Let us not forget the mighty New York Times as well as the New Yorker, harbouring lying journalists, now that would almost be interesting except they have been harbouring them for as long as I can remember. The New York Times with the New Yorker is not any paper of record, it's the propoganda arm of the Democratic Party in the US. Another hypocritical example of their inanity and flagrant bias, dangled with lies and flagrant hypocrisy.

It is all a circus, pass the popcorn..

New Yorker staff writer Jonah Lehrer quits the magazine:

Mr. Lehrer faced new questions about his work on Monday in an article in the online magazine Tablet that reported that he had admitted to fabricating quotes attributed to Bob Dylan in “Imagine,” a nonfiction book published in March by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
It’s alright, ma. He’s only lying.

“Three weeks ago, I received an email from journalist Michael Moynihan asking about Bob Dylan quotes in my book ‘Imagine,’ “ Mr. Lehrer said in a statement. “The quotes in question either did not exist, were unintentional misquotations, or represented improper combinations of previously existing quotes. But I told Mr. Moynihan that they were from archival interview footage provided to me by Dylan’s representatives. This was a lie spoken in a moment of panic. When Mr. Moynihan followed up, I continued to lie, and say things I should not have said.”

UN Summit: Time for Climate Reality Check.

I thought I was the only one producing frog spawn.

Meanwhile back at the ranch, we have others being re-tuned with the truth about the AGW lies, the misinformation and general malaise that scientists who have claimed to be experts in the field like Mann, Jones et al, as well as the father of all global warming disinformation Al Gore (the Goricle has made millions out of it) are being finally demonstrated as being such. Liars, cheats and thieves and our cost of living is going to climb dramatically just so politicians, greenies, fanatics and NGOs can make some claim that they have saved the planet.

But from what you may well ask?

Even if the planet theoretically warms as much as their illiterate dubious and questionable models  wrongfully demonstrate and predict, using biased and adjusted information. What would actually happen, besides the fact that it has all happened before. It has been 10 degrees warmer than now and where is the harm from that ?

The Vikings froze to death and they had to abandon their settlement to survive the freezing cold that replaced it. So what is the problem with a little more heat again ?

Let me know when you find it. Greenland was covered in grass paddocks filled with animals and crops. Now they are complaining that in the middle of summer, the ice is melting which is something that has happened every 150 years. Nothing new there but the hysterics and misinformation still rears it's ugly head and below one continues one's education.

Climate Depot Special Report: A-Z Climate Reality Check -- Sub-Prime Science Exposé: 'The claims of the promoters of man-made climate fears are failing' -- Presented to UN Summit   

'The scientific reality is that on virtually every claim -- from A-Z -- the claims of the promoters of man-made climate fears are failing. The A-Z report includes key facts, peer-reviewed studies and the latest data and developments with links for further reading, on an exhaustive range of man-made global warming claims'

Wednesday, December 07, 2011By Marc Morano  –  Climate Depot
Below is the Introduction to the report. Full report is available here.
 The Antarctic sea ice extent has been at or near record extent in the past few summers and the ice is expanding, the Arctic has rebounded in recent years since the low point in 2007, polar bears are thriving, sea level is not showing acceleration and is actually dropping, Cholera and Malaria are failing to follow global warming predictions, Mount Kilimanjaro melt fears are being made a mockery by gains in snow cover, global temperatures have been holding steady for a decade or more and many scientists are predicting global cooling is ahead, deaths due to extreme weather are radically declining, global tropical cyclone activity is near historic lows, the frequency of major U.S. hurricanes has declined, the oceans are missing their predicted heat content, big tornados have dramatically declined since the 1970s, droughts are not historically unusual nor caused by mankind, there is no evidence we are currently having unusual weather, scandals continue to rock the climate fear movement, the UN IPCC has been exposed as being a hotbed of environmental activists, former Vice President Al Gore is now under siege by his fellow global warming activists for attempting to link every bad weather event to man-made global warming and scientists from around the world continue to dissent from man-made climate fears at a rapid pace.

Global Warming: The Farce. Temperature Stations Wrong.

Follow the distortions, the lies, the mis-information and the people involved.

It does not matter how big the lies are or how many people are involved in the fraud. The truth will eventually out those who have maliciously and intendedly deceived the public and they should be facing charges for their deliberate deceptions.

There is now no excuse for the "Global Warming" hysteria to even exist, for anyone to utter those same lies and exaggerations, as they have been for so long. It is now way too embarrassing for anyone to utter the AGW lies as it will single them out as being part of that conspiracy as well as being part of the team that was solely interested in filling their pockets with taxpayer's loot, under false pretenses. They should be roundly ashamed and bought to justice. The entire saga is a total and complete disgrace to all involved.

New study shows half of the global warming in the USA is artificial

PRESS RELEASE – U.S. Temperature trends show a spurious doubling due to NOAA station siting problems and post measurement adjustments.

Chico, CA July 29th, 2012 – 12 PM PDT – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A comparison and summary of trends is shown from the paper. Acceptably placed thermometers away from common urban influences read much cooler nationwide:

A reanalysis of U.S. surface station temperatures has been performed using the recently WMO-approved Siting Classification System devised by METEO-France’s Michel Leroy. The new siting classification more accurately characterizes the quality of the location in terms of monitoring long-term spatially representative surface temperature trends. The new analysis demonstrates that reported 1979-2008 U.S. temperature trends are spuriously doubled, with 92% of that over-estimation resulting from erroneous NOAA adjustments of well-sited stations upward. The paper is the first to use the updated siting system which addresses USHCN siting issues and data adjustments.
The new improved assessment, for the years 1979 to 2008, yields a trend of +0.155C per decade from the high quality sites, a +0.248 C per decade trend for poorly sited locations, and a trend of +0.309 C per decade after NOAA adjusts the data. This issue of station siting quality is expected to be an issue with respect to the monitoring of land surface temperature throughout the Global Historical Climate Network and in the BEST network.
Today, a new paper has been released that is the culmination of knowledge gleaned from five years of work by Anthony Watts and the many volunteers and contributors to the SurfaceStations project started in 2007.

IPCC: Living the IPCC Lies..



















Donna Laframboise touring Australia and filling the local population in on the fraud that the IPCC is. Not only has it lied, cheated and spread the AGW scaremongering as being true and real. They have also employed Global Warming fanatics and hypocrites from the WWF as well as Greenpeace. It has been demonstrated that 30% or more of the chapters in the 2007 IPCC release on climate change was written by people employed and associated by NGOs like Greenpeace and the World Wildlife Fund.

The lies and misinformation those people have propagated and promoted must be investigated and the culprits bought to justice. Those self-serving criminals do not deserve the legal equivalence of innocent until proven guilty as Donna's book has already clearly demonstrated beyond doubt that they were party to the great Global Warming Hoax and should pay for their criminality.



The public are still paying for those lies while ignorant governments still introduce ludicrous laws and taxation that these people have frightened everyone into. They are criminals of the worst kind as they were well aware of what they were doing and deliberately continued and promoted their scam on the world's population.

Mark Levin calls out Andy Cohen over Kathy Griffin calling Willow Palin a dirty whore.

O day and Griffin - Pondscum United.
 Mark Levin calls out Andy Cohen over Kathy Griffin calling Willow Palin a dirty whore

This is how liberals and lefties attack people, especially children because those flagrant cowards can get away with it. Here is a prime example of the disgraceful, foul mouthed behaviour those yellow bellied cowards do in order to make themselves "feel" good about themselves. To identify Kathy Griffin as disgusting is to give it a complement. She is another example of why women are generally pathetic, nasty and uncaring comedians. They have no sense of irony and wallow in the usual vile politics of the left wing lunacy and claim it to being comedy, they claim it to being humour or even make the bare faced lie of it being comedy.

The word imbecile and cretin come to mind regarding Griffin's offensive diatribe but it is the way the left behave. No honour, no dignity, no class and definitely no morals.

This behaviour by Griffin is disgusting and not even remotely can it be passed off as comedy. Not in a million years and here is Mark to inform you why.

How Lefties Murder Children and Destroy the World.

Left Wing Lunatics favourite Emblem.
Two rousing examples of the stupidity of left wing lunatics. They will adhere to their own stupidity even at the cost of the lives of their children. They are murderers, it is that simple. They distrust medical knowledge and know how by listening to some other lunatic who has no previous medical experience besides her feelings. Another great win for liberal stupidity and another life lost due to their very own ignorance. What a mentality and how stupid and ignorant does one have to be in order to kill your own offspring. This is an absolute disgrace and the blame for the death is on the so called "Home birther"expert and both parents. They are going to have to live with precisely that.

Stupidity kills children too.

Two days later, the hospital removes the ventilator from the infant so he can be taken home to be with his family. He dies that night, on October 9, 2011, the latest in a string of home-birth deaths across Australia.
The South Australian Director of Public Prosecutions has launched an investigation into Barrett's involvement with the three fatal home births. Her website has vanished.

This is self-described "international homebirth advocate" Lisa Barrett.



Entrusting a potentially fatal medical procedure to a dreadlocked hippy. What could possibly go wrong?

Oh wait, there is more. This level of stupidity does not just appear, it is actual educated and taught to these morons..
Idiots are born every day but a left wing nutjob has to actually read, study, comprehend and learn their blatant stupidity.While they are at it, convince others to undertake and practice hat they preach. As long as they get paid and nothing happens to them, they're happy.

Another Guaranteed Bestseller

Antony Loewenstein has released another book. The reviews are in:
The Australian:
Left Turn: Political Essays for the New Left (MUP), edited by Antony Loewenstein and Jeff Sparrow, contains the predictable far Left claptrap railing against capitalism, praising the Occupy Wall Street movement, calling for more union strikes and industrial "combat", recognising Australia's inherent racism, supporting the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against Israel, and of course, attacking the "Murdoch empire".
Sounds like his blog plus a bit of cardboard and a couple of staples.

According to the poster for the launch, It includes "passionate and challenging contriburionts bu a diverse range of writers". Yes, reading anything by Loewenstein is challenging. Who are these diverse writers? "From Larissa Berendhg and Christos Tsiolkas to Guy Rundle and Lee Rhiannon". Such diversity! Males and females...

How to be a Liberal without any Morals or Thinking.

One has to remember that Liberals or Marxists or Communists, do not possess any morals whatsoever. This mentality allows them to change and charge against anything they "FEEL" is not in their own best interest. In order to complete their own decided actions, regardless of what that may be eg. "Not voting for Marxist Obama is RACIST" has nothing whatsoever to do with the fact that he is black but it has everything to do with the liberals demanding that you vote for one of their own stoolies. In order to supply some level of psychological pressure and implying guilt if you do not vote for their choice, it is blackmail and coercion.

In order to pursue their maniacal "World View" in which everyone will dress precisely like those drones in China use to, given a job that the "masters" demanded you do. Payed wages that will keep you in lifetime poverty as in that position, you will not bother the elitists from pursueing their own selfish narcissistic aims and desires. We have that same mentality from Liberals in America, Labor in Australia and England and the EU elitists as well, they are all aiming for this outcome. They claim to help but in reality just want to impose more freedom restricting laws and spend their time telling you how you should live while they enrich themselves. That is the liberal's dream and outcome. If you prefer to live in squalar without having the opportunity of pulling yourself out of it. Prefer to be told how to behave, live and die as per government instructions, then liberalism is for you and so is the inability to think or have any morality. How great is that ?

20 Obvious Truths That Will Shock Liberals

More truths to get on with while you wallow in stupidity and ignorance. Here are some home truths to keep you on your way as thinking about them would be such an effort, you poor dear..

Here is the next list of truths from the previous post stating the original 13 well known facts.

14) The Democratic Party was behind slavery, the KKK, and Jim Crow laws. It was also the party of Margaret Sanger, George Wallace, and Bull Connor. It has ALWAYS been a racist party. Even today, white liberals support Affirmative Action and racial set-asides because they still believe black Americans are too inferior to go up against whites on an even playing field.
15) A man with good morals who falls short and becomes a hypocrite is still a far better man than a liberal who can never be called a hypocrite because he has no morals at all.
16) The most dire threat to America's future and prosperity in the last 150 years hasn't been the Nazis, the Soviets, or Al-Qaeda;, it's the spending and overreach of our own government.
17) Greed isn't someone wanting to keep more of what he earns; it's people demanding a greater share of money that someone else earns.
18) Most of the time in American politics, the liberal "victim" is really a bad guy who is absolutely delighted by the opportunity to pretend to be "offended."
19) Jesus Christ was not a conservative, a liberal, or a politician. He was also not a capitalist or a socialist. Still, you can say this: Jesus drew sharp lines about what's right and wrong, he wasn't tolerant of what the Bible categorizes as sinful behavior, and there's absolutely no question that he would adamantly oppose abortion and gay marriage.
20) When you demand that other people fund your sexual escapades by buying your contraception, your sex life becomes their business.

How to Succesfully be a Left Wing Lunatic.

Obamas a snob but won't ever admit it.
One of the major problems facing left wing lunatics is the thinking process and it's issues. The reason it is an issue is because they appear to be incapable of achieving that task without wallowing in their fanatical, people hating diatribe. The thought process would actually allow them to reason out a few of their main stupidities and come out with something, anything reasonable (Pelosi is a prime example of this cognitive dissonance).

Pelosi Suffering Cognitive Dissonance. 

 

Take for example the "Ethanol" issue, to one reasonable human being capable of conscious thought processes, would rightly think that people over the world would starve to death if we burn food in our vehicles as the food issue has been just that for the last 30 years. If food becomes too expensive, people would die. Even the main left wing lunatic and professional liar Al Gore, has confessed it to being a mistake. All that comment did was demonstrate that left wing loonies require an extra ten years to reach the bleeding obvious, that other sound minds can see immediately.

Obama Missing the Ten Year Gap. 

 

That ten year gap still rides high with marxist Obama, whose has only ever wallowed on the tax payers dollars and cannot tell the difference between an AK47(A communist used weapon and made in Russia) to an M16. The reason he cannot identify anything else is because he wallows in marxist thought processes that can only identify their own weaponry. That is when they are not killing and murdering their own population. Marxists and communists have murdered more people than all the wars combined.

So we need some sane suggestions for those cretins who are off the opinion that only they are sane as anyone not taking their medication would think.

20 Obvious Truths That Will Shock Liberals


1) The Founding Fathers were generally religious, gun-toting small government fanatics who were so far to the Right that they'd make Ann Coulter look like Jimmy Carter.
2) The greatest evil this country has ever committed isn't slavery; it's killing more than 50 million innocent children via abortion.
3) Conservatives are much more compassionate than liberals and all you have to do to prove it is look at all the studies showing that conservatives give more of their money to charity than liberals do.
4) When the Founding Fathers were actually around, there were official state religions and the Bible was used as a textbook in schools. The so-called "wall of separation between church and state" has absolutely nothing to do with the Constitution and everything to do with liberal hostility to Christianity.
5) The biggest problem with our economy today is Barack Obama. His demonization of successful people, his driving up gas prices, his regulatory overload and threats to increase taxes have terrified businesses into hunkering down, refusing to spend money, and declining to hire new people. Replacing him would do more than any government policy to spur economic growth.
6) Not only are conservatives more patriotic than liberals, but most American liberals "love" America in about the same way that a wife-beater loves his wife.
7) Out of every 100 cries of “Racism” you hear these days, 99 are motivated by nothing other than politics.
8) Anyone paying income taxes is certainly paying his “fair share" -- and then some -- compared to the people who pay.nothing.
9) You don't have a "right" to anything that other people have to pay to provide for you.
10) If we can ask people to present an ID to buy alcohol, drive a car, or get on an airplane, then asking them to present identification to vote is a no-brainer.
11) There's absolutely nothing that the government does smarter, better, or more efficiently than the private market with roughly equivalent resources.
12) The biggest problem with education in this country is liberals. They fight vouchers, oppose merit pay, refuse to get rid of terrible teachers, and bend over backwards to keep poor kids trapped in failing schools.
13) Fascism, socialism, and communism are all left-wing movements that have considerably more in common with modern liberalism than modern conservatism.

To Be A Lefty: Remove Reason and Common Sense.

One has to seriously look at the thinking processes that left wing lunatics use in order to generate another one of their "Who can we hate next" or even better still "Whose life can we destroy today" mentality. In order for anyone to produce any similar thinking processess akin to a left wing fruitcake, one only has to revert back to their own childhood. Back to those days when everything you did and ate and slept in, was conveniently just handed over with no expectation or gratitude.and just taken for granted. The child-like mind of those reprobates still serves them well enough as they grow into child-adult combination.

Most other normal people actually mature, grow up, learn and move on, but not the leftwingers. That would be unthinkable as life was just so easy back then and why should they want anything that would require -

a. To think.
b. Have to deal with problems.

Neither of those answers are suitable and are automatically rejected. For some outstanding examples of their stupidity, we do not have to look too far back. Well maybe a few centuries. The French Revolution is a prime example on how the sheeple can be manipulated and trained to behave like mindless, insane drones in order to murder over 15,000 people and claim it as being the actions of grownups. That is primarily where their moronic mentality started to get some traction as Marx and his fellow mass murderer, Engels have already demonstrated and utilised. they could see how easy it was and how easy it is to shape the mindless into their very own manipulators.

In order to get the sheeple interested and all exited, just tell them that it's all for their own benefit and they will be rewarded at the end with a new Utopia that will treat and furnish them with the answers to their most inate, selfish and animalistic desires. That is all it takes for those simpletons to pay abeyance to the monsters they have always claimed to being their heroes. Take that maniacal, murdering pshycopath "CHE" as a prime example of who not to worship, but they do. Such is the depth of their inbuilt stupidity that they do not ever bother to check out anyone they pay homage to and just listen to their indoctrinators so they do not have to waste any brain power, in order to actually decide things for themselves. Total, utter and complete morons the likes of which we can now witness in another marxist psychopath by the name of Obama.


On one interview just after that cretin was elected, one of the simpletons made the claim that Hussien O was going to pay for her petrol that she would use in her car for nothing, zero cost to her. Now one would have to wonder how the hell that simpleton came to that conclusion after listen to that marxist's inaugeral speech. Yes I know, selective hearing and an IQ equivelant to her boob size helps a plenty. But this is what we face now on a daily basis. Absolutely, totally and completely ignorant of all things in real life, totally pre-occupied with self, completely saturated with socialists nonsense and here we have the next generation of no hopers rising like the morning sun and looking for their spot in the Occupy Something line up.

Sadly a main part of the population have problems with what day it is or how to make their own breakfast and here they are involved in politics which they know absolutely nothing about. They make inane claims and noises that are aimed at their own version of narcisissm. Only their own well being and the assumed wellbeing of plants and animals are as important and screw everyone else.

It certainly is a shocking thing to witness and revisit as this same mentality is what brought about the second world war. Ignorance and stupidity fall hand in hand with anarchy and total, complete self interest. Especially when they are told that everyone got their riches the easy way but you have to suffer to get yours. So why not let the government give it all to you and all you have to do is just vote them back in and the tap will keep running right up until the country goes broke but that's another story.

Occupy That: A Bunch of Rapists, Abusers and Reprobates.

Losers, criminals and free-loaders. They be compensating the cities for the damage caused.
I have yet to read a more honest and reasonable appraisal of those losers that lay claim to representing the 99% of the population, in their dreams. Those layabouts represent the left wing of politics that requires people to hate and tear down anything and anyone who does not grant them their every wish. A wish made up of the fact that they neither want to work, or pay taxes or be any type ofbenefit to society accept to bill it for their pathetic existence.

In reality, all those law breakers should now be in jail for the mess they generated and created. Send them the bill for the damge and abuse they subjected the passing public to. They certainly re the scum of society and should be treated and seen as such.


ANARCHY

posted 11.7.2011

Everybody’s been too damn polite about this nonsense:

The “Occupy” movement, whether displaying itself on Wall Street or in the streets of Oakland (which has, with unspeakable cowardice, embraced it) is anything but an exercise of our blessed First Amendment. “Occupy” is nothing but a pack of louts, thieves, and rapists, an unruly mob, fed by Woodstock-era nostalgia and putrid false righteousness. These clowns can do nothing but harm America.

“Occupy” is nothing short of a clumsy, poorly-expressed attempt at anarchy, to the extent that the “movement” – HAH! Some “movement”, except if the word “bowel” is attached - is anything more than an ugly fashion statement by a bunch of iPhone, iPad wielding spoiled brats who should stop getting in the way of working people and find jobs for themselves.

This is no popular uprising. This is garbage. And goodness knows they’re spewing their garbage – both politically and physically – every which way they can find.

Wake up, pond scum. America is at war against a ruthless enemy.

Maybe, between bouts of self-pity and all the other tasty tidbits of narcissism you’ve been served up in your sheltered, comfy little worlds, you’ve heard terms like al-Qaeda and Islamicism.

And this enemy of mine — not of yours, apparently - must be getting a dark chuckle, if not an outright horselaugh - out of your vain, childish, self-destructive spectacle.

In the name of decency, go home to your parents, you losers. Go back to your mommas’ basements and play with your Lords Of Warcraft.

Or better yet, enlist for the real thing. Maybe our military could whip some of you into shape.

They might not let you babies keep your iPhones, though. Try to soldier on.

Schmucks.

Carbon Tax: Australian Labor Government Stupidity.



 It's not Australia that needs a carbon tax, It's China who should be reducing theirs. One does wonder where that stupidity in Gillard's Labor government is derived from. Not only has the Australian Labor Government sold it's soul for thirty pieces of silver, it has and continues to steal ever more from taxpayers under false and obvious dishonest guises.

Take a look at the differences between the pollution in China (NO CARBON TAX) and Sydney in Australia (A $23per Ton Carbon Tax). Have a good, clear look at the difference and now have a think about the stupidity of the Labor government, influenced by their marxist Green partners in the Government and wonder whether or not those children in charge have any idea as to what they are doing.

Andrew Bolt

Reader Julian and his wife were in Beijing last week and Sydney the week before. Julian asks:
One of these countries recently introduced a carbon tax to reduce pollution. Guess who..?

The top image is in China, the second is in Sydney with the Opera House behind. Now who needs the carbon tax more ?

Climate Change: Just a mention, gets you a Grant.

The photoshopped polar bear on dimishing ice. CAGW lies..
The entire CAGW theory and it's hallucinatory projections appears to be at an all time high. All that is required to receive taxpayers dollars is to include the words "climate change" and heh, presto, here's the money.

This level of stupidity is unsurpassed, the lies and exaggerations just keep on coming and it's the Labor Government under major lunatic Gillard and those whacko marxist Greens who are promoting precisely that great lie.

One wonders what level of ignorance and hysteria one has to approach and foster in order to inhale all that drivel, what level of soul selling is involved and also how does one reach such a level of dishonesty. Hopefully some day in the future, those charlatans will be exposed for the charlatans they really are and are forced to repay those tax dollars which should have gone to schools and hospitals and the odd road in bad state of repair.

How do you get a grant from the Australian Research Council? Just add the words “climate change” to your otherwise undistinguished grant application. Philippa Martyr demonstrates the extremes some researchers have gone to - and been rewarded for:

Civil Engineering: “This project will develop innovative light gauge steel roofing systems with considerably increased wind resistance and reliable design rules for cold-formed steel codes worldwide. It will contribute to the Australian government’s goal of increasing building resilience against future extreme and more frequent wind events caused by climate change.” ($320,000)
Political Science: “Commonsense says that claims about how social and political life ought to be arranged must not make infeasible demands. This project will investigate this piece of commonsense and explore its implications for a number of pressing issues, such as climate change, multiculturalism, political participation, inequality, historical justice, and the rules of war.” ($408,587)
Psychology: “Climate change represents a moral challenge to humanity, and one that elicits high levels of emotion. This project examines how emotions and morality influence how people send and receive messages about climate change, and does so with an eye to developing concrete and do-able strategies for positive change.” ($197,302)

Journalism and Professional Writing: “This project will examine the use of news management or ‘spin’ by Australian governments. Is it a legitimate tool of government in the face of a hyper-adversarial news media or a technique which undermines democracy? It will examine ‘spin’ in connection with policies on climate change, economic policy, indigenous policy and asylum seekers policy.” ($95,000)

Literary Studies: “The project will devise and develop a new ‘cultural materialist’ paradigm for science fiction studies and apply it to a case study of science fictional representations of catastrophe, especially nuclear war, plague and extreme climate change.” ($239,000)

Read on for more astonishing examples from the great green gravy train. UPDATE
Digging deeper, we find the winner of the journalism grant is former communist turned journalism academic David McKnight, who earlier received nearly $200,000 - or $3 a word - to write a predictably hostile book on Rupert Murdoch.
Dr Roberto Soria was onto this earlier this year (along with JoNova):
And by the way, number of winning projects that propose to test whether climate change is real or catastrophic: zero. The climate-change industry has really become a monster out of control.

Some of those projects would not have got a cent, if the government wasn’t under the influence of this collective hallucination.

There’s a whole parasitic class of academics who make a good living off the catastrophic climate change myth, and the larger this class grows, the more difficult it will be to burst the bubble. Anyway, just in case you think this is just sour grapes, it is not. I actually won a grant myself this round, and it is one of the few projects that will do absolutely nothing for or against climate change But I am sad to see so much research money wasted for nothing.
JoNova has had cause to chide McKnight for his writing on global warming:
Here’s a UNSW “Senior Research Fellow” in journalism who contradicts himself, fails by his own reasoning, does little research, breaks at least three laws of logic, and rests his entire argument on an assumption that he provides no evidence for.
