It’s Been a Really Bad Month for the Left: Fidel Castro Finally Dead at Age 90 by The Elephant's Child

trudeau_transparency_20140611Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau immediately gathered the mockery of the internet as he issued praise for the dead Cuban tyrant.

“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie [Trudeau’s wife] and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader,”

He also called 90-year-old dictator “larger than life” and a “legendary revolutionary and orator.” Uh huh.  Twitter had great fun with that:

Go here for the long, long list of people not impressed and having fun:

Remy Does Parody And It’s Quite Special by The Elephant's Child

Lyrics:

I heard the news and I was sad
A crazy man who’ll power grab
He’ll probably bomb countries unapproved, yeah
The debt will double – Won’t abate

He’ll build up the surveillance state
I guess it won’t be all that different, ooh yeah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah

He might be so awful, So unhinged
Defense Secretaries leave and then
Imply his White House knows not what to do yeah

He’ll wage a war on whistle-blows
there may be unexpected gropes
He’d be that nightmare
They call “deja vu” yeah

Hallelujah
Hallelujah

He might take the data from our phones
Have citizens killed by flying drones
Mock the disabled oh no we’ll be through yeah
So if you’re mad and on the streets
Concerned about this overreach
Well where’ve you been
It isn’t all that new, yeah

But Hallelujah
Hallelujah



Facts Have a Way of Coming Out, In Spite of the Media. by The Elephant's Child

Of the 112 “protesters” arrested in Portland riots, 69 of them could not be found to have turned in a ballot, nor were registered to vote in Oregon. Interesting details largely unmentioned by the media.

Some Leftist remarked “Why can’t we run someone who’s beloved?”

 



Newsweek Recalls 125,000 Copies of Its Souvenir Madam President Issue by The Elephant's Child

From Britain’s The Telegraph today. “Hillary Clinton signs a copy of Newsweek’s ‘Madam President’ commemorative magazine on November 7. They printed one for Donald Trump, too, just in case. The old photo of Harry Truman holding up the newspaper with the Dewey wins headline remains a caution to the press. Can’t help but enjoy it.



Mr. Trump is Getting Off to a Very Good Start! by The Elephant's Child

122712_cavuto_ebellOh Frabjous Day Callooh! Callay!* Donald Trump has selected Myron Ebell, director of the Center for Energy and Environment at the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute who will spearhead Trump’s transition plans for the EPA and climate policy. An excellent pick!

Scientific American huffed:

Ebell is a well-known and polarizing figure in the energy and environment realm. His participation in the EPA transition signals that the Trump team is looking to drastically reshape the climate policies the agency has pursued under the Obama administration. Ebell’s role is likely to infuriate environmentalists and Democrats but buoy critics of Obama’s climate rules.

Ebell, who was dubbed an “elegant nerd” and a “policy wonk” by Vanity Fair, is known for his prolific writings that question what he calls climate change “alarmism.” He appears frequently in the media and before Congress. He’s also chairman of the Cooler Heads Coalition, a group of nonprofits that “question global warming alarmism and oppose energy-rationing policies.”

Ebell appears to relish criticism from the left.

The climate policy of the Left has never been about climate. They have created a noxious hysteria about man’s role in climate which is more myth than reality, with the general aim of using climate panic to destroy capitalism and bring on a new world order. See the post by Dr. Fred Goldberg below. Myron Ebell is not a “climate denier” nobody denies climate, a silly accusation. Just another of the insults and accusations flung about by the Left, who really hate being disagreed with.

We have spent billions and engaged in all sorts of silly schemes in a futile attempt to change the climate, which is controlled by the actions of the sun. Good appointment. Can we hope that the EPA will join the list of once-useful agencies that have been disbanded?

Dr. Fred Goldberg Squashes Climate Alarmism by The Elephant's Child

Dr. Fred Goldberg , director of the Swedish Polar Institute and a leading world authority on polar history and exploration, discusses the extent of Arctic glaciers and sea ice which have been highly variable over the past millennium.  “Warmists” have cited some recent retreats as supposed evidence of man-caused warming, Goldberg has showed that ice retreated dramatically in the 1920s—prompting a scare and fears of “a radical change in climatic conditions and  unheard of temperatures in the Arctic, then temperatures dropped again and the ice came back.  By 1977 there were fears of a coming ice age. To understand future ice conditions, he says, we need to understand what the sun is doing.

IPCC’s climate people have little knowledge about cloud formation and its effect on the climate and the influence of water vapor on the greenhouse effect.

The climate is a chaotic system and can therefore not be modeled. No climate models have been verified and it takes at least 60 years to verify a climate model.

The panic about global warming exists entirely in computerized climate programs, and the minds of the Left. And there are just too many variables that we do not understand, so they filled in with ‘educated guesses,’ wild guesses and approximations. But research on matters of climate can garner hefty grants, better salaries and new labs,  and a chance to go to all sorts of climate meetings in the lovely resorts of the world. Who’s going to worry about approximations?



How Could Hillary Possibly Govern? by The Elephant's Child

screen-shot-2016-11-02-at-5-17-53-pm

Hillary cannot stop lying. Today she was in Florida telling listeners that they could count on her to defeat ISIS  because she was in New York on 9/11 and saw the planes hit the towers. Except, no, she wasn’t. She was in the Senate and there’s a picture of her out on the Capitol steps, singing “God Bless America” with the rest of the Senate, and an interview with her on video at 8:00 PM that night.  She is always the hero of some strange movie running in her head when she dodges sniper fire in Bosnia, named after a famous mountain climber who didn’t become famous until years later. Tried to join the Marines!

The lies weren’t really important, and it makes her look silly when she is caught out. It’s compulsive, but creepy. And so much worse when her lies are exposed, than if she had been truthful in the first place.

But how is she possibly going to govern? She is not liked, even by Democrats. Who would trust her? Listening to her screech is beyond painful. She has a truly unpleasant voice. How would she get her appointments through Congress? Are they people she owes? Do they have something on her? How does she interact with other heads of state?

The entire world is watching this campaign unfold. Some news appears in the British papers before anyone here gets it.

The Clinton Foundation has been under investigation by the FBI for over a  year, and is ongoing. It is reported that indictments are likely.

More to come from Wikileaks, more news from the FBI, Justice, State, and the Wiener household, I guess. It’s beginning to seem like the script for a thriller rather than just an ordinary American election that we have every four years. What next? Unfolding.
