Everything We Know About Elections Is Wrong,
Fourth Movement and Coda

How can the GOP take advantage of the axioms of coolness, without losing its soul? Remember, the axioms of coolness don't mandate going over the top! Unlike Democrats, Republicans should always ask, "WWRD?" I don't mean with regard to policy;...

South Carolina's Newtron Bomb: Part 1 - the Unbreakable Thread

The best news out of South Carolina -- for all Republicans, independents, and even Democrats who dread a second term for Barack H. "Bubble Boy" Obama -- is that the rift between those GOP-primary voters who support Mitt Romney and...

Beware the Algore Aliens!

It's hard to imagine that globaloneyism could get any more absurd than it already has; but -- never say never! I can't even make fun of this self parody. The mind boggles. Imagination fails me: It may not rank as...

Shutdown Blooze

The looming shutdown hits us harder than most. As you probably know, Sachi works for the U.S. Navy as a civilian engineer. According to the Department of Defense shutdown plan, for as long as the shutdown continues, Sachi must still...

Rite of Rerun

I see that Barack H. Obama has finally dared to speak truth to power: He has "accepted" the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. What a stunner! So what does this mean for the hundreds of millions...

Califorlornia

        All right, so California was a one-state Democratic tidal wave. Never have so few done so much to hose so many -- including themselves.         But we did do pretty well on the...

Wonderful News on Climate Change!

Remember the University of East Anglia (UEA), whose Climate Research Unit (UEA-CRU) was the subject of "intense media scrutiny," after e-mails filtched from its server disclosed numerous violations of basic science and simple honesty in the debate over global warming?...

The Religion of Fear Itself, or Why I Despise Modern Liberals (reason 334)

Rarely do I get such an opportunity to opine on my two favorite topics, politics and science fiction, simultaneously! Physics idol Stephen Hawking is quite convinced that life -- and intelligent life -- exist elsewhere in our galaxy: The suggestions...

Bride Mistress Tawdry One-Night Stand of Climategate

The "Climategate" scandal began last November, when several thousand e-mails and other documents hacked from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia (the CRU at the UEA, for you alphabet-soup lovers) were dumped at a separate website,...

Rhetoritician, Heal Thyself

Another example of neoconservative Michael Medved fawning over an Obamic oration that simply isn't worth the... well, we'll get into that. On his radio show today, Medved referred to a speech, which Obama gave today at the National Prayer Breakfast,...

The Rear Ends Justify Their Meanness

Fake but accurate This is too rich for my carburetor: The scientist behind the bogus claim in a Nobel Prize-winning UN report that Himalayan glaciers will have melted by 2035 last night admitted it was included purely to put political...

Slicing the Globaloney: a Case Study!

It's always exhilarating, not to mention educational, to see how real science is made... especially when the conclusion just happens to fit the prevailing global-warming story-board so perfectly! Here's how the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the main "scientific"...

ObamaCareGate?

Now we know why some prominent economists came out swinging so strongly for ObamaCare, notwithstanding its economic stupidity: MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, one of the leading academic defenders of health care reform, is taking heat for failing to disclose consistently...

Neil Frank Rains on the Gorbasm Snow Job

Another denier obviously in the pay of Big Ergs. It's time to say bye-bye to this American lie: Now that Copenhagen is past history, what is the next step in the man-made global warming controversy? Without question, there should be...

In Theory, It Ought to Be a Theory, But...

Frequent commenter Snochasr: has responded to a previous Big Lizards post titled Gas Masquerade, which notes that even some mainstream scientific publications for lay readers have begun to think a second time about the pronunciamentos of globaloney. Snochasr japed: This...

Gas Masquerade

One remarkably serendipitous effect of Climategate is that mainstream science publications -- written for laymen, I mean, not scientists -- are beginning to take a hard look at the core contradictions of globaloney: Science-oriented magazines that never before so much...

They Don't Love Nature - They Just Hate Mankind

That was my honest, stunned conclusion some years ago about the "environmentalist" movement; if anything, the evidence of anti-human insanity has become even clearer since then: The increasingly violent, even murderous tactics of terrorist groups like the Earth Liberation Front...

The War Against Children Spreads to Canada

The Canadian newspaper the National Post has hit upon a brilliant solution to all the world's problems; not only that, they have discovered that if their solution is not implemented immediately, the Earth will be destroyed in short order. But...

Congress Be Damned, Globaloney Marches On!

Now that the Cripple and Tax energy-killing bill flogged by President Barack H. Obama is stalled in the Senate, where it doesn't have the 60 votes needed to advance (sounds familiar), we can take a breather, right? We're safe from...

Gallup Sets Obamic Baseline on Afghanistan

Gallup just released the polling numbers on Barack "Lucky Lefty" Obama's Afghanistan policy; they polled from November 20th to 22nd, so this poll sets a perfect baseline for how the One's policy speech last night, and his new policy itself,...

Wheels of Fire

I love beginning posts with personal anecdotes, which you can deduce from the fact that I never do it. No time like the present to start! One week in high school, my all-time second-favorite social studies teacher, Lyle Thornton Wolf,...

Have You Stopped Beating Your Climate Science Yet?

I always love it when the "sophisticated" side of the aisle demands an immediate "yes or no" answer to a complex, multifaceted question; and when the Right can't give it and won't fake it, the Left brays that we're dodging...

A Commonsense Health Reform Plan

First, let's simply list what we need; then we can propose the smallest possible reform that delivers those needs. As a general rule, we should always try the easy, inexpensive, less intrusive reforms before trying any authoritarian, patronizing, socialistic, and...

The Nuclear Winter of Conservative Discontent

I have finally identified the greatest bane of conservatives, their bugaboo, their bête noire -- the great barrier that retards them from winning many of the most vital political arguments of today. But let me sneak up on it a...

Weapon of Gas Discussion

A left-wing enviro "think tank" -- well, I reckon that's a misnomer! -- has suddenly tigged to what's stopping the mass conversion to Globaloney that the econuts have predicted (demanded!) for decades: It's not the preposterous premise, the muddled modeling,...

Albert & Me

Monckton challenges; Gore clucks According to what appears to be a blog (it's hard to tell these days), Lord Christopher Monckton, former advisor to the Iron Lady of Britain, was invited by Republicans to give skeptical testimony at a globaloney...

Waiting for the Sun

Is it just me? (And how many times recently have I said or written, "is it just me?") For a beautiful example of the miracle of circular reasoning that is globaloney, take a gander at this -- the world and...

More Obamunism: Who Controls the Newspapers Controls the Present

"Who controls the past controls the future. Who controls the present controls the past." -- "George Orwell" (Eric Blair), Nineteen Eighty-Four Sen. Benjamin Cardin (D-MD, 100%) has ridden in on his white horse with a wonderful suggestion for newspapers that...

Eric Holder's "Race" to the Bottom

According to the Black Attorney General -- I would have simply written Attorney General, but every story in the elite media makes a big point of his blackitude, so I presume we're under orders to take note -- the biggest...

But in Theory...

Of all the crazy memes flogged by Democrats and liberals, this one is, I believe, the most psychotic: Attorney General-nominee Eric Holder forcefully broke from the Bush administration's counterterrorism policies Thursday, declaring that waterboarding is torture and pledging to prosecute...

The Great Leap Forward: How the Heck Can We Win Anyway?

It's a serious question: If a candidate like John S. McCain can be beaten by an empty suit with no experience spouting policies that "seem vague but are in fact meaningless," then what the heck are we supposed to do...

Novel New Criminal Defense: Globaloney Made Me Do It!

The headline raises immediate and insistent alarm bells: Jury decides that threat of global warming justifies breaking the law. The Independent reports that a British jury has just acquitted eco-vandals of spraypainting the smokestack of a coal-fired power plant, causing...

Here's How to Get That Scientific Consensus on Globaloney: Jail "Deniers"

Though he now insists he didn't mean it "literally" (any of the several times he said it), Canadian anthropogenic global climate change (AGCC) advocate and occasional scientist David Suzuki has called for imprisonment of politicians who didn't kow-tow to globaloney...

How Bush Got His Groove Back

Today, President George W. Bush did something that shocked some of us: With a sweep of his presidential hand, he rejected the attempt by a low-level advisor to the Environmental Protection Agency to force the administration to regular carbon dioxide...

Cheney vs. the EPA: the Sound of One Wing Flapping

Here's the scaremongering lede from the Associated Press -- funneled into hometown newspapers and dutifully recited on local news stations across the country: Vice President Dick Cheney's office pushed for major deletions in congressional testimony on the public health consequences...

"What's Bad for General Motors Is Good for the DNC!"

Over at Real Clear Politics, Tom Bevan speaks for nearly all pundits, spread across three parties unto the tenth generation, when he writes: Of course, the worse the economy gets, the better it is politically for Obama... This is Conventional...

Marriage, Money, and Ursus Maritimus

I have in my pocket three horrible court decisions: One is a state supreme-court decision from California; another is a decision by a panel of the D.C. Circus Court; and the third is an initial court order followed by further...

So What Will President McCain Do...

...When it becomes utterly clear that there has been no net "global warming" in the past decade (despite a big increase in atmospheric CO2), and that any climate change that does occur for a few decades from time to time...

Gee, He Really Is Conservative - Page 1: Economics 101

Some days ago (tax extortion day) John McCain gave a speech at Carnegie Mellon University in the Pitts -- I mean, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The speech focused on his fiscal policy, taxing and spending in particular. What was refreshingly unexpected...

Watcher Countdown - Two! Just Around the Corner...

Yep, we're winding our way down. By the time you read this, we will already have voted on our last Watcher's Council vote. But we don't consider ourselves truly alumni until we finish the last three results posts... a tad...

Who Is the Republican Core Anyway?

In a comment on another post, commenter Caustic Conservative gloomily wondered whence would come the electioneering energy for John McCain: I still worry about who it is that will be financing the McCain campaign, and manning the phone banks this...

Why Should We Care Whether Hillary or McCain Wins?

In this post, Patterico applauds Ann Coulter for saying that if John McCain is the nominee, she'll campaign for Hillary Clinton for president. Then Patterico concludes: I won’t go so far as to say I’d campaign for Hillary. But, judges...

At Last, the Final Ketchup Watcher!

Since the vote this week has not even occurred, we're not yet late... so as soon as this post on last-week's Coucil vote hits the 'sphere, we'll actually be all caught up! Council The winner was our number-two vote this...

More Ancient Watchers...

Watcher Council hot -- Watcher Council cold -- Watcher Council in the pot Nine days old! Another hoary, old Watcher's Council post excavated from the Cretaceous period (i.e., last week). Council Once again, I'm convinced the only reason we won...

"The Courage to Do Nothing"

There are some things Man (according to the dominant paradigm) is not meant to know... And here's a nice round-up of forbidden knowledge from the Republicans in the Senate, led by Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK, 100%), ranking member (and former...

Le Duc Tho, Jimmy Carter, Yassir Arafat - and Al Gore?

As you've all no doubt seen, the whispers turned out to be correct, for a change: Algore, in conjunction with the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change, has won the Nobel "Peace" prize. Now perhaps someone can explain to me what...

Watcher On the Rind

Last Council vote gave us a winning week; this time, it's a weak win: We didn't do so well with our own nomination in the Council vote... but our nominee and first choice for the Nouncil vote won hands down....

Bush Muzzled Sturgeon General - Thank God!

The newest attempt by Democrats to gin up a scandal against President Bush -- one that actually might stick, not another "fired U.S. attorneys" or "commuted Libby to keep him quiet" fizzle -- is working its way through the elite...

Weasely Winners

The Council hath hisseth, and here ith the hith... For the emirs of the Council of the Watcher of Weasel Does America Elect Defeatists?, by Big Lizards. If you're bothering to read these words, then you likely already know what...

A Devil's Deal I Would Eagerly Accept

The Democrats have crafted an Intelligence Authorization Bill that diverts scarce intelligence resources into yet another insane attempt to "prove" anthropogenic global warming, a.k.a. "Globaloney." And I very much support the bill. Have I gone mad? Bah, ye of little...

Wow - Cosmic, Dude!

A fascinating new theory for global climate change -- that temperature rises and falls are driven less by human production of "greenhouse gases" but primarily by how much or how little the sun's magnetic field protects the Earth from cosmic...

Climate Change: the Dash for Cash

A new charge is roiling the scientific community; it was leveled today by the ultra-leftist Guardian, formerly the Manchester Guardian, out of the U.K.: Scientists and economists have been offered $10,000 each by a lobby group funded by one of...

The First Church of Fundamentalist Climate Change

Just before last Christmas, Dr. Heidi Cullen, "Climate Expert and host Of The Climate Code" on the Weather Channel, threw down the gauntlet on her blog at Weather.com. She attacked "global warming contrarianism," by which she appears to mean any...

Bench Warming

It's hard to think of a sillier lawsuit than this one, filed by California's Democratic Attorney General (and candidate for treasurer in November) Bill Lockyer, with the undoubted connivance of Republican Governor and globaloney-lover Arnold Schwarzenegger: California sued six of...

Globaloney Experts Predict Zero Scientific Progress in Next 100 Years!

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (the wizards who brought us the Kyoto Protocol) have now revised their estimates of upcoming global warming downwards: now they believe mean global temperature will only be 3º C warmer in 2100 than today,...

19 Out of 19 Activists Agree!

All right, I know you guys love these: here is another "what is wrong with this picture?" conundrums.... The nation's top climate scientists are giving "An Inconvenient Truth," Al Gore's documentary on global warming, five stars for accuracy. The former...

Globaloney Slicers

Although it may seem at first as if the Supreme Court is going to substitute itself for the scientific method in deciding whether anthropogenic global climate change is actually real, it's nowhere near that dire; in fact, this case is...

The Questions Never Asked

According to the New York Times, global warming -- excuse me, global climate change; I keep forgetting -- has raised world temperatures to the warmest it's been in at least 1,000 years, maybe more. But this immediately raises a number...

My Globaloney Has a First Name, It's H-a-r-r-y

This morning, I heard a sound bite of Sen. Harry Reid (D-Caesar's Palace) on the radio claiming that Hurricane Alberto is more "proof" of global warming. (Actually, it sounded like he said Alfredo, rather than Alberto; maybe he was calling...

News Flash: Catastrophic Global Warming Found - 55 Million Years Ago!

New research has found that a scant 55 million years ago, the North Pole quickly developed a climate much like Florida today: The new analysis confirms that the Arctic Ocean warmed remarkably 55 million years ago, which is when many...

Poisoning the Well

Most of us learned in grade school that animals breath in air primarily for the oxygen, which they uptake and use, exhaling carbon dioxide (CO2); while plants need that CO2, uptaking it and "exhaling" (releasing) O2, oxygen. We have also...

A Climate Pact Even I Can Applaud

Scaley Classic first posted July 28th, 2005, on Captain's Quarters. This one caught me totally by surprise: China, India, Australia, Japan, South Korea, and the United States (we led the effort) have just signed an international agreement, the Asia Pacific...

Pick a Pact, Any Pact

The long afternoon of the grand global climate pact is ending; the hot sun sinks low, and the coolness of the night chills fevered fantasies of scores of nations linking hands and singing a Climatological Kumbayah. Even the New York...
