Inconvenient Facts

The global warming hysteria would be hilarious if it wasn’t being used to ramrod rules and legislation that are robbing us all of resources and liberty, and to transfer wealth and power to unelected bureaucrats and elites.

Indeed, it is far from hilarious. The hysteria and the ensuing ridiculous regulations and power and money grabs are downright dangerous — not only because loss of freedoms and abuse of power always lead to persecution and misery, but also because the net effects of the regulations imposed to reduce carbon emissions will result in death and suffering.

In his book “Inconvenient Facts: The Science that Al Gore Doesn’t Want You to Know”, Geologist Greg Wrightstone lays out a compelling case against the global warming hysteria, and in favor of the fact that, from a long-term geologic perspective, we are CO2 impoverished (which is bad news for plant and animal life), and the relatively small increase in CO2 from man is actually beneficial to mankind.

We recommend that you acquire and read Greg’s book. In the meanwhile, Greg’s presentation on YouTube is a good primer:

Rest in Peace, Walter Excellence Williams

The “E” stands for “Excellence”, Walter E. (Edward) Williams would sometimes say about his middle initial, and, judging by his accomplishments, he was right.

Born in 1936 to a devoted and determined single mother, Walter overcame adversity to become a leading economist, scholar, political philosopher and defender of truth and reason. He passed away on December 2nd, 2020.

Walter achieved many things in his lifetime. He was a true champion of liberty, particularly of economic freedom, and was an outspoken and unapologetic critic of government policies harmful to minorities, and of false narratives blaming whites for the problems in minority communities.

Trump vs Biden: Who’s the real racist?

The epithet of “racist” is used as a powerful political weapon by the Democrats and their allies to smear conservatives. I have yet to see any evidence of their claims of racism by Donald Trump, or by any other conservatives that they target. Nobody I have challenged to provide evidence of their supposed racism has ever produced any. Meanwhile, I have seen evidence of racism by Joe Biden and by other Democrats and their supporters, evidence that is hypocritically ignored, all in the name of partisan politics.

Nothing to see here, it’s just Colorism

You would really have a hard time making this stuff up, never mind getting someone to believe it. But it’s true.

The University of Florida’s Anthropology department recently sponsored a town hall they specifically told white students not to attend. It was just for so-called “BIPOC” students, meaning students who are black, indigenous, or “people of color”. Here is part of the text from an email sent to all students who were enrolled in an anthropology course:

Participants of approximately 2,000 unemployed individuals from ages 25 to 58 were given €560 ($685) monthly without any sort of requirements. If they found a job, they were still granted a monthly stipend for the same amount.

Synthetic pot causing bleeding from eyes, ears and elsewhere

Emergency rooms in Illinois are noticing a spike in synthetic pot users suffering from “severe bleeding,” and state health officials are warning the public to remain vigilant.

The Illinois Department of Health (IDPH) issued a statement on Wednesday announcing that at least six people in northeastern Illinois had been hospitalized after using the man-made substance — also known as “fake weed,” “K2” or “spice.” On Friday, the number of cases climbed to 32, the health department reported….

“Despite the perception that synthetic cannabinoids are safe and a legal alternative to marijuana, many are illegal and can cause severe illness,” IDPH Director Nirav D. Shah said in a statement earlier this week. “The recent cases of severe bleeding are evidence of the harm synthetic cannabinoids can cause.”

…Users have reported a wide range of symptoms, from bleeding gums and bloody noses to blood in the urine. Women who are menstruating have also experienced a higher than average flow. Bleeding from the eyes and ears is also possible after use, IDPH said.
