  • Do We Have the Political Will to Live?

    The American Mind ^ | 07/13/20 | Clifford Humphrey
    A year before the British surrender at Yorktown, John Adams wrote to his wife Abigail: “I must study Politicks and War that my sons may have liberty to study Mathematicks and Philosophy.” It’s a simple point: times defined by the former are not times defined by the latter. C. Bradley Thompson understandably desires that Americans “rediscover the philosophy of Americanism,” the philosophy—at least as he understands it—of the American Founding. What Thompson misunderstands, though, is that ours are once again times of war and politics; no mere philosophy can save us now. Americans of the founders’ age could realize the...

  • Biden’s vision comes into view, and it’s much more liberal than it was (anyone see Gropin' Joe today?)

    07/12/2020 6:43:56 PM PDT · by Libloather · 11 replies
    Joe Biden is looking at building 500 million solar panels, slashing U.S. carbon emissions within 15 years, and rapidly expanding a government-sponsored health care plan. He wants to overhaul the way policing is conducted on American streets and the way success is measured in primary schools. Over the past week, the presumptive Democratic nominee has offered the biggest burst of policy proposals since he effectively won the nomination, including a plan to spend $700 billion on American products and research. It marks a significant move to the left from where Biden and his party were only recently - on everything...
  • Unusually large jellyfish off Israeli coasts

    07/12/2020 5:41:32 AM PDT · by Eleutheria5 · 50 replies
    Every summer an influx of jellyfish is seen off the Israeli coast. This year the jellyfish are bigger than normal. As Israel's yearly jellyfish influx approaches its apex, University of Haifa's Leon H. Charney School of Marine Sciences has been studying the ecology and life cycle of jellyfish along Israel's coast. And as a huge swarm of jellyfish appeared off Haifa's coast, the University's researchers took the opportunity to get up close and personal with Israel's all-too-familiar summer marine animals — and this year they're larger than ever. "Overall, this is the summer bloom of jellyfish that we anticipate, but...

    Incentive programs for electric cars and solar panels mostly benefit those who can afford those things, while regulations that drive up the cost of energy hurt those who can't afford much to begin with. ... a growing rift on in the environmental world between those who favor the state's far-reaching "green" policies—and those who want to hector us to use less energy.

  • The Biden (Sanders/AOC) Climate Plan: Socialism Wrapped in a Green Bow

    DB Daily Update ^ | David Blackmon
    The Biden (and Sanders and AOC) “Climate” plan is out, and boy is it a doozy. – Make no mistake about this: Joe Biden might be the “nominee” and official face of the Democrat Party in this general election, but the Party has been fully taken over by the party’s radical, outright Marxist wing. At best, Biden is nothing more than a sock puppet; at worst, a willing co-conspirator. Yesterday’s release by the Biden Campaign’s “unity task force” on climate led by AOC is manifest proof of that reality. The “plan,” such as it is, is written in the soft,...

    Phys.Org ^ | November 27, 2017
    New research by McGill University biologists shows that milder winters have led to physical alterations in two species of mice in southern Quebec in the past 50 years – providing a textbook example of the consequences of climate change for small mammals. The findings also reveal a stark reversal in the proportions of the two mice populations present in the area, adding to evidence that warming temperatures are driving wildlife north. At McGill's Gault Nature Reserve, about 40 kilometres east of Montreal, biologist Virginie Millien for the past 10 years has been studying two similar, coexisting species: the deer mouse...

    Whoever coined the phrase, “The devil you know is better than the one you don’t,” OBVIOUSLY never met Hillary Clinton. There is a reason she is called Hitlery not only in private, but often in print as well at times. There is no situation on earth that the Devil we know with Hitlery, is EVER better than ANYONE, let alone Donald Trump. How many people has Trump killed again? Oh yes, zero. First of all, there's her never-ending killing spree of her political opposition. On August 6th, when I wrote, Clinton Adds +5 to Body Count in 6 Weeks, a...

    New polling confirms Americans are not as crazy and clueless as their mainstream media. Despite all the media BS about peaceful protests, Americans are not so willing to go along with ripping down all the statues of heroes and saints, burning and looting the business districts and threats to abolish the police. According to a new poll by Democracy Institute the fallout from the Black Lives Matter protests and riots will win President Trump his reelection.

    Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, refused to say whether she’ll vote for President Trump in November and signaled that she would not campaign against presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The self-proclaimed moderate Republican from Maine told the New York Times this week she does not campaign against former colleagues. Biden and Collins worked together in the Senate. “I do not campaign against my colleagues in the Senate,” she said of Biden, adding that she knows him “very well” from their days in Congress together. “My inclination is just to stay out of the presidential and focus on my own race,” she...

    November 7, 2015 Black People Must Be Livid at the Keystone Job Killer-In-Chief By Colin Flaherty Everybody knows the only reason why so many black people spend so much time in prison is because there are no jobs. This is Article of Faith Number One among reporters and public officials and pundits who, on the one hand, deny black crime is a problem, then on the other, insist it is a problem that is all about jobs. So every single one of these job-loving apologists must be livid that the president just said he was going to stop the construction...

    The First Amendment protects the right of religious institutions “to decide for themselves, free from state interference, matters of church government as well as those of faith and doctrine.” Kedroff v. Saint Nicholas Cathedral of Russian Orthodox Church in North America, 344 U. S. 94, 116. Applying this principle, this Court held in HosannaTabor Evangelical Lutheran Church and School v. EEOC, 565 U. S. 171, that the First Amendment barred a court from entertaining an employment discrimination claim brought by an elementary school teacher, Cheryl Perich, against the religious school where she taught.

    Here is a checklist for fans of the “greatest of all presidents.” Where’s the wall — and is Mexico paying for it? Where’s the fabulous plan to replace ObamaCare? Where’s the deal with North Korea to end their nuclear threat? Where’s the racial healing in retweeting a supporter shouting “white power”? Oh, didn’t he tell you in February the virus was going to magically disappear and then repeat it to you last week after more than 125,000 Americans died from it? Now that’s a record of failure. And here is one more question on empty promises for Trump’s biggest fans,...

    The Koch brothers might be part of buying Time magazine, and a former Time science editor is so panicked he wrote an article for the leftist magazine The Nation titled "Don't Let the Koch Brothers Buy Time Magazine." Charles Alexander wrote about how his life’s work of screaming environmental bias may be about to go down the drain: Can you imagine what it would be like to see your life’s work suddenly go down the drain? I can—right now. As a former Time editor who spent 13 years editing the magazine’s coverage of environmental issues, I am in despair over...
  • House Passes $1.5T Climate Infrastructure Bill Packed With Green New Deal Wish-List Items

    On Wednesday, the House of Representatives passed a massive $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill packed with Democrats’ climate wish-list items. Democrats passed the bill 233-188 on a mostly party-line vote. Much of the funding tied to actual transportation measures — $500 billion — is tied to green measures requiring states to set targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and preparing for mitigation as if an unspecified climate catastrophe were on the immediate horizon. President Donald Trump slammed the bill, H.R. 2, as “full of wasteful ‘Green New Deal’ initiatives.” “Naturally this nonsense is not going anywhere in the Senate,” Senate Majority...

    The reason for the collapse of Mayan civilisation has been hotly debated, but now scientists claim they have an answer - climate change. Researchers believe that hot weather made the Mayans more aggressive and therefore likely to fight one another. As crops failed due to the rising temperatures leaders waged war for power which lit the fuse of their eventual demise around 900 AD, the study says. With crops levels low Mayan leaders could no longer rely on brash festivals or building projects to keep their sujects happy. So they resorted to power struggles and war instead which finished the...

    People living in Denmark will need to sort their recycling into ten different containers, under a new deal that aims to cut 0.7m tonnes of emissions and make the country’s waste sector carbon neutral by 2030. Denmark’s climate minister Dan Jřrgensen said that, with the average Danish resident throwing away 800 kg of waste into general recycling a year, people in the country were worse than the European average, which is 490 kg. […] Under the agreement, which has the support of all parties except for the Danish People’s Party and the New Right Party, Denmark’s municipalities have half a...

    If these predictions come to pass, their fulfillment will have lasting effects upon America in the 2020s and beyond. In 2008, as the Obama administration prepared to take control in Washington, retired Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey offered a list of bold predictions for the coming five years. Some of them bore out: The economy performed well globally despite the Great Recession, relations with Russia became more hostile without devolving into outright dysfunction, and the United States withdrew from Iraq right at the 36-month mark, which McCaffrey specified. Other predictions, such as a North Korean collapse, improved prospects for success in...
