  • NY Times: Should You Trust Climate Science? Maybe the Eclipse Is a Clue (groan alert)

    NY Times ^ | August 18, 2017 | Justin Gillis
    For years now, atmospheric scientists have been handing us a set of predictions about the likely consequences of our emissions of industrial gases. These forecasts are critically important, because this group of experts sees grave risks to our civilization. And yet, when it comes to reacting to the warnings of climate science, we have done little. If the science were brand new, that might make sense, but climate scientists have been making predictions since the end of the 19th century. This is the acid test of any scientific theory: Does it make predictions that ultimately come true? In the early...

    WASHINGTON — One lazy, sultry afternoon in 1947, two years after America helped trounce the Nazis, my father arrived at our family’s modest summer house on the Severn River near the Naval Academy. He had come from his job as a police detective in D.C., still wearing his suit and his service revolver. “Get your shoes on and come with me,” he told my 10-year-old brother, Martin, his Irish lilt edged with a steel that caused his son to scramble. “I have something to do and I want you to see it.” The town, Herald Harbor, Md., had its share...

    OAKLAND, Calif. — Last weekend, when a 27-year-old bike messenger showed up at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Va., he came ready for battle. He joined a human chain that stretched in front of Emancipation Park and linked his arms with others, blocking waves of white supremacists — some of them in full Nazi regalia — from entering. “As soon as they got close,” said the young man, who declined to give his real name and goes by Frank Sabaté after the famous Spanish anarchist, “they started swinging clubs, fists, shields. I’m not embarrassed to say that we...

"She has a case and she and her lawyers can have a field day in discovery and deposition." I'm not alone is recognizing how devastating her lawsuit is. She has good lawyers (the team that destroyed Gawker Media), a good case, and all the time in the world. Lawyer John Hinderacker at Power Line is boasting about his prescience in the case. He knows the law. I know editorial writing. Did it for 27 years. The...

    How Google's Jigsaw is fighting the darkest parts of the internet BY KERRY FLYNN JUL 20, 2017 Fake news, terrorist propaganda, hateful comments — the internet is not the nicest place in the world. Jigsaw is trying to change that. Formerly under Google, Jigsaw now is a subsidiary within Alphabet. The company, under the direction of Alphabet chairman Eric Schmidt and Google Ideas founder Jared Cohen who serves as founder and CEO of Jigsaw, focuses on researching some of the darkest corners of the internet and implementing ways to address them.

    Members of the Vice President’s staff are pushing back against rumors that Pence’s team is working on a 2020 shadow campaign as suggested in a Saturday New York Times story. The Times claims that newly installed Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff Nick Ayers has “signaled” to donors a potential Pence 2020 run, a claim that Ayers immediately refuted via Twitter: Nick Ayers ✔ @nick_ayers .@alexburnsNYT @jmartNYT print total lie in #fakenews article.

    The first news reports of House IT staffer Imran Awan's Monday arrest "for attempting to flee the country and charged with bank fraud" came out on Fox on Monday night. The New York Times did not file a related story until Friday afternoon, roughly 72 hours later, for Saturday's print edition. Reporter Nicholas Fandos's Page A18 item is one of the most obvious and disgraceful attempts at misdirection and reality avoidance one will ever see, starting with its headline, which, incredibly, makes it appear as if this scandal, which the Democratic Party entirely owns, involves President Donald Trump. Here is...

    Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last year. Credit Jim Wilson/The New York Times WASHINGTON — For months, conservative news outlets have built a case against Imran Awan, his wife, two brothers and a friend, piece by piece.To hear some commentators tell it, with the help of his family and a cushy job on Capitol Hill, Mr. Awan, a Pakistani-American, had managed to steal computer hardware, congressional data and even — just maybe — a trove of internal Democratic National Committee emails that eventually surfaced last summer on WikiLeaks. It helped that...
  • The Russians Were Involved. But It Wasn’t About Collusion.

    07/28/2017 7:46:48 PM PDT · by springwater13 · 86 replies
    The evidence that has emerged from this meeting strongly suggests that this was not an effort to establish a secure back channel for collusion between Moscow and the Trump campaign but an influence operation with one simple objective: to undermine the presidential election. Sophisticated Russian intelligence tradecraft that was meant to be kept secret would not have permitted such an insecure opening gambit for establishing continuing communication with the Trump campaign. They would not have used something as insecure as email, or relied on liaison cutouts who could so easily be traced to the Kremlin. Instead, the Russians who attended...

    Last year, after President-elect Trump picked Jeff Sessions to be attorney general, The New York Times editorial page called the Alabama senator “radical” and “extreme” and tarred him as an unrepentant racist and xenophobe. Last week, after Trump criticized Sessions and others, the same editorial page suddenly discovered a new fondness for Sessions. The Times now insisted that Trump had impugned his “integrity” and that of others “who have spent their careers respecting and protecting” the law. It’s not likely that Sessions is grateful for the embrace. He knows he’s just a pawn — dirt when Trump embraces him, and...

    President Trump weighed in on a number of hot-button topics in a string of tweets Saturday morning, the day after naming a new White House communications director and accepting the resignation of press secretary Sean Spicer. The president took aim at some familiar targets: the "Amazon Washington Post," leaks, Hillary Clinton, "Special Council" Robert Mueller and others.  But one missive in particular left observers scratching their heads. In a cryptic tweet, Mr. Trump accused "the Failing New York Times" of foiling an attempt to kill Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The...

    Some Seattle-based social justice warrior named Frances S. Lee woke up over the weekend and realized his political ideology is no different than your basic religious cult, complete with sacred texts, religious dogma, church elders and strictures on speech and behavior that must not be violated. Mr. Lee is asking to be excommunicated from this amazingly destructive, anti-American church. Good for him. The trouble is, for every awakened SJW like Mr. Lee, there are a hundred mind-numbed nitwits waiting to take his place. By the way, as you read Mr. Lee’s piece, try substituting the words “Climate Change” every time...

    The case of dying English baby Charlie Gard shows how much public opinion about life and death issues is swayed by emotion rather than thoughtful deliberation. Charlie was born with mitochondrial DNA depletion syndrome. This condition is so rare that there are probably only a dozen children in the world who are affected. The child cannot breathe on his own, cannot move and is probably profoundly intellectually disabled. His parents, Connie Yates and Chris Gard, understand that their son will probably only live a short time, but want to give him every chance. They have found a professor of neurology...

    Here’s reality: During the campaign, representatives of both the Trump and the Clinton campaigns no doubt held dozens, if not hundreds of meetings with third parties claiming to have damaging information about the opposition. This is an integral part of what every campaign refers to as “opposition research”, and these campaigns will take any real, true information they can get their hands on, regardless of the source. There is nothing scandalous about anything we’ve learned about Trump Jr.’s meeting with this woman thus far, and damn sure nothing illegal about any of it. Anyone who says otherwise is just a...
  • New York Times Has Neither Seen Nor Read ‘Russia Email’ to Donald Trump, Jr.

    The New York Times reports Monday evening that Donald Trump, Jr. was informed through an email that the information on Hillary Clinton that a Russian lawyer had offered to provide “was part of a Russian government effort to aid his father’s candidacy.” The email in question “was sent by Rob Goldstone, a publicist and former British tabloid reporter who helped broker the June 2016 meeting” with the Russian lawyer, the Timesreports. Supposedly, the email would have alerted Trump, Jr. to the lawyer’s alleged links to the Kremlin. Curiously, the Times does not provide the email. Nor has it actually seen...

    The Washington Post took lots of heat over the weekend after the outlet published a story that appeared to connect last month’s leftist baseball shooter to a right-wing radio host. James Hodgkinson of Belleville, Illinois, opened fire last month on a group of congressional Republicans at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia, who were practicing for the annual Republican versus Democrat baseball game that raises money for charity. Hodgkinson was able to wound four people, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), before being shot by a Capitol Police officer who was part of Scalise’s security detail. Hodgkinson later died...

    At the current pace, by the end of March, 2018 it will be as if Barack Obama never served as President. By the end of March 2018, I believe that President Donald Trump will have signed congressional bills that repeal and replace ObamaCare, and which significantly reform both personal and corporate income taxes. At that point, what will be left of the admittedly paltry Obama policy legacy? Not much. In reality, in fact, it’s already almost all gone, and the lazy, self-absorbed political activists who dominate the fake news media have barely noticed, mainly because they’ve been too busy obsessing...

    Today’s New York Times has what amounts to an advertorial for Shariah finance, espousing “Retirement Savings, the Muslim Way.” Not surprisingly, given the New York Times’s jaded past, the article is unbalanced and omits many of the concerns about Shariah finance.
