  • Gore’s ‘Inconvenient Sequel’ lands on Oscar shortlist despite disputed climate science

    Washington Times ^ | 12/09/17 | Valerie Richardson
    **SNIP** The Oscar buzz comes despite pushback from skeptics, led by University of Alabama in Huntsville climatologist Roy Spencer, a former NASA scientist who accused Mr. Gore of attributing natural phenomena to human-caused climate change. In September, Mr. Spencer published an 84-page e-book, “An Inconvenient Deception,” which blasted the film as “bursting with bad science, bad policy, and some outright falsehoods.” “An Inconvenient Truth” was similarly rebuked by skeptics — Danish academic Bjorn Lomborg challenged it in a book and film called “Cool It”—but the movie earned $24 million at the box office, making it the 11th-highest grossing documentary of...

  • Five Things People Get Wrong About Steve Bannon

    Steve Bannon may be the most wildly caricatured, criticized, and, in some quarters, reviled figure in American politics. He crisscrosses the country with badass bodyguards in tow because, one assumes, he needs them. But in researching for my new book “Bannon: Always the Rebel,” which included ten hours of one-on-one talks with the man, I discovered and wrote about someone quite different than the popular image of a goose-stepping neo-fascist who wants to withdraw the United States from the world and make Donald Trump dictator for life.Here are just a few of the popular misconceptions about Bannon that normally can’t...

    If you spent Election Night last November in utter disbelief and concluded that Donald Trump was a clown who stumbled into a lucky win, you missed “one of the most important perceptual shifts” in human history.

    Matt Bracken continues to please. I have read all of Matt's books, and consider him a friend, even though we have never met in person.The Red Cliffs of Zerhoun is a distopic novel of the near future. There have been no significant technological advances. The world's economy has crashed, with large parts of the world torn by local wars. Electricity in most areas is either missing, or highly localized.The action takes place near the coasts of Ireland, mainland Europe, and Africa, if we consider “near” to be within a couple of hundred miles.Matt knows his weapons, and how they...

    The Washington Post reported new details from Donna Brazile’s forthcoming book, Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House, that include the fact that the interim chair of the Democratic National Committee considered replacing Hillary Clinton as the Democratic party’s 2016 presidential candidate.Following Clinton’s bizarre collapse during the 2016 9/11 memorial ceremony, Brazile seriously considered choosing either Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Cory Booker from New Jersey as the party’s presidential nominee. Brazile does not hold back her criticism of the campaign, palpably describing it as having “an odor of failure.”...

    Conservative Firing Line ^ | November 3, 2017 | John Talleos
    There was a behind-the-scene report where Hillary Clinton angrily lashed out at DNC chairwomen Donna Brazile after a presidential forum on NBC. She knew the questions in advance but Matt Lauer decided to go off-script and ask her about her email server instead. This enraged Hillary and after the interview she walked off stage and confronted her staff particularly Brazile: I’m so sick of your face. You stare at the wall like a brain dead buffalo, while letting that f – – – ing Lauer get away with this. What are you good for, really? Get the f – –...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 11/4/2017 | Daniel Chaitin
    In yet another bombshell from Donna Brazile's upcoming book, the former interim head of the Democratic National Committee describes the paranoia she went through surrounding the Russia-linked hacks of Democrats' emails during the 2016 campaign. In the memoir, which will have the title, "Hacks: The Inside Story of the Break-ins and Breakdowns That Put Donald Trump in the White House," Brazile talks about the mysterious murder of DNC data staffer Seth Rich, which some conspiracy theorists say is because he leaked internal DNC emails to WikiLeaks, and wrote about how she felt her own life was in danger. Brazile says...

    Former President George H.W. Bush says he is not too excited about "blowhard" President Trump and confirmed in a new book that he voted for Hillary Clinton. “I don’t like him,” Bush, 93, says in the book, according to a review by The New York Times. “I don’t know much about him, but I know he’s a blowhard. And I’m not too excited about him being a leader.” In the book, titled “The Last Republicans,” the 41st president also revealed that he voted for Trump’s Democrat rival Clinton in the 2016 White House race.

    Both former President Bushes had choice words for current President Donald Trump in a new book scheduled to be published later this month, with the elder Bush reportedly calling the billionaire commander-in-chief a “blowhard” and flatly stating he does not “like” him. Presidents George Bush and George W. Bush, the 41st and 43rd top executives respectively, spoke to author Mark K. Updegrove for the book “The Last Republicans.” It detailed the relationship between the father-and-son presidents and how they were fretful of what Trump had done to the Republican Party. Furthermore, both ex-presidents admitted they did not vote for Trump....

    The best-selling author of the purely fictional books The Da Vinci Code and Inferno is not known for letting facts get in the way of his stories. The problem isn't so much Dan Brown, though. It's the legions of readers who believe that the drivel he spills onto the paper is true. There are reasons why I used the qualifier "purely fictional": many people believe that the history and theology in Dan Brown's books are correct. They're not.Hopefully, the smackdown that physicist Jeremy England gave Dan Brown in a Wall Street Journal article titled "Dan Brown Can't Cite Me to Disprove God" will help people realize...
