Did you know they allow you to take mulligans in science?  It’s news to me!

So plagued with fraud, deceit and bunko that it is beyond redemption, the IPCC appears ready to throw out everything it has propounded as gospel truth over the years and start over again to produce a new trove of global temperature data!

Trauma therapy is recommended for all those eco-acolytes whose heads are likely to explode.

Oh, and have you heard this on any of the legacy media? I thought not.

Here’s the scoop at Fox!

Hat tip those creative lunatics at Minnesotans For Global Warming!

Our friend, and one of the most daring investigative journalists we know, Pamela Geller, has a great article on John O. Brennan, the President’s Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and counter terrorism.

The subject is the investigation into the access of and possible tampering with the State Department passport records of….Barack Obama.

The tamperer was  a contract worker for the company Brennan was CEO of.  A key witness and co-conspirator in the tampering was found dead, shot in the head, in a car in Washington, DC, shortly afterwards.  That case remains unsolved.

Too many coincidences.

This is really too important to miss.

The Democrats including Obama want to pass healthcare reform through the reconciliation trick.  A few years ago they were decrying that same method as the end of democracy in America.  I think they were right then.  What changed?

Is it any wonder that Congressional approval has fallen to 10%?

And that the Tea Party movement has issued its own Declaration of Independence?

My hat is off to Skye and the other bloggers who disrupted Medea Benjamin and her sidekick Tighe’s attempt to upstage Glenn Beck’s speech at CPAC.

Now if only these venues would learn to use folks like the Gathering of Eagles or Free Republic to supplement their hired security far fewer of these childish pranks would succeed.

David Bellavia, author of House to House about his experiences in Fallujah, Iraq, wrote about the conclusion of the Iraq War as evidenced by the changing of the name last week.

He writes:

I am not naive. I understand that there are individuals who opposed the war in Iraq from the very beginning and I believe their passion, although misguided at times, is rooted in a deep desire for peace. What always baffled me was the reaction they had to pro-victory veterans when we came home. As if we were some robotic arm of the Bush White House. It was foreign for them to understand why winning in Iraq was so important.

Our friends died in this cause. There is no honor in their death unless we complete the mission they died fighting.

Everyone is exposed to the death of someone close to them at least one time in their lives. Cancer, accidents, sometimes it is sudden or violent. Rarely do we see it. But when we do our lives are affected forever because of it. We live in a culture where there must be a reason for everything that goes wrong. Obama is responsible for job loss. Bush ruined the housing market. The tires that blew out on my car that I was driving was a manufacturing error and not due to the fact that I was driving on the sidewalk.

Someone is responsible for everything that goes wrong in America. It makes us feel better to know it wasn’t our fault.

The war in Iraq was no different. While many scurried to blame Donald Rumsfeld, General Franks or President Bush for losing the war in Iraq, they bet against the American fighting men and women to turn the tide of the war. “The mission” in Iraq was evil. The troops would never be maligned as they were in Vietnam.

I don’t begrudge these people. They simply will never get it. They are the type of people you need to protect in a society. They are innocent and naive.

It is the job of the warrior to hide them under the bed and tell them it will be okay, before we run off to combat the threat.

The ones that hold my contempt are those who, even today, know of the sacrifice made, the incredible progress gained and still will not acknowledge what was won on the ground in Iraq. They cheapen the sacrifice of how it was earned. Operation Iraqi Freedom is no more.

The Commonwealth Foundation of Pennsylvania and Young Americans for Freedom launched a protest on February 12th over the whitewash of the Penn State investigation into Michael Mann of “Hide the Decline” fame and demanding an independent investigation!

Michael, Michael, He’s Our Mann,

If He can’t hide it no one can!

2 4 6 8, Why don’t you investigate?

A Michael Mann supporter, Ed Perry, of the National Wildlife Federation made the usual “peer reviewed” argument that has been so thoroughly debunked.

Another group of climate change zealots is demanding an apology from the Commonwealth Foundation for having the temerity to protest their envirowhacknut religion!  A Penn State student responds!

A good media report is here.

More background here.

An unrepentent Mann gave a lecture on climate change hours after the protest.

Congressman Tom Price (R-GA) gives a moving speech at the wreath laying in Georgia.

This is a man who gets it.

I nearly gagged when I watched this video.

Larry Summers is a pedantic maroon.

If he believes the nonsense he spouts during this interview he is dumber than a stump.

For those who think Obama’s faux pas was a one time slip:

The fact of the matter is that Obama is clueless.
