Collusion in the White House

Looks like Trump will withdraw the US from the Climate Accord and democrats/liberals are upset.

First off, the Climate Accord is neither binding on the US, or even legal, because Congress never approved the accord, since it is a not a treaty, as specified by the Constitution

Second, Obama and world leaders openly COLLUDED to circumvent not only approval by Congress, but by fiat, to circumvent the US Constitution.

Third, the same democrat/liberals that are upset at the US withdrawing from an illegal treaty are the same ones that COLLUDED with Obama to bind the US to the accord.

Fourth, the same democrats/liberals are projecting their actions onto Trump by accusing him of colluding, without any proof, just supposition, with Russia to get elected.

It seem all the things the democrats/liberals are saying is what they know of themselves and want for themselves and afraid Trump will do unto them what they did unto America during Obama’s 8 years in office.

Obama cut corners and abused his powers to try and bind the US to the accord, like he did many other things, without seeking to make it a lasting, legal and durable treaty. Anyone that is angry that Trump will withdraw the US from the ACCORD, not TREATY, only have themselves to blame regardless of whether that person or persons are foreign or domestic.

I would hope that Trump would assemble a panel of all climate scientists, regardless of their position on the issue, to do unbiased, non-partisan and TRUE science rather then a bunch of idiots behaving like children that attack someone who says otherwise just to protect their funding. Those children, during the 1970’s, claimed the world was entering a new ice age and that we must stop burning fossil fuels, so their credibility is already suspect. It is whatever excuse can be used and herd the non-science public into backing their biased and bigoted positions on the climate.

My position is there is global warming, but it is not in the skies, but at our feet, in our cities – the heat islands that change weather patterns. No matter how clean the sky, it can absorb only so much heat and heat generation has to be reduced. But climate alarmists don’t bring that up because it would mean explaining that people have to cut back on all the lights used and air conditioning, especially on large buildings and those people, those citizens have to pay for it.

Alternative energy? All that does is let people go on, willy-nilly, generating heat and feel good about it.

In conclusion, fix it and fix it right instead of using short-term, ill thought-out ideas that are just a band-aid. Don’t throw money for funding at people trying to cheat you and scare you. Fix the cause, not the effect. Do real science instead of using bigotry, hate and greed to scare people. It’s time for real HONESTY on the climate because it is more then man-made.

Spotting Bias and Prejudice in the Media

There is this headline from the Times Business and Money web site, “The Disturbingly Hot Tourist Activity in Hawaii, Vegas: Shooting Guns”. By inserting the word “disturbingly” the article is re-shaped from being a report on a lucrative business activity to a moralistic play for gun control. It becomes that if you like to shoot guns there is something wrong with you. It’s no longer about skill, it’s a perversion of nature and such people should be reeducated. What next? Being sent to the reeducation camps that Communist Russia and China made infamous?

This is a case of, “I think I’m right and therefor I am right”. This article shows not only a personal bias but an institutional one with a plan and a agenda to force gun control even on people and businesses operating lawfully by placing a stigma on even lawful activities. 

No one, right or left, has the right to tell anyone how to live their life as long as they are law-abiding citizens and not doing anything wrong. 

FoxNews Bias Alert

The FowNews web site has a nearly continuous posting regarding what they regard as bias against Mitt Romney. But the latest is about the secondary layer of media outlets politicizing both Romney’s AND Obama’s response to Hurricane Sandy. These are the ones that criticized Obama for trying to look leader-like and the ones that criticized Romney for his relief efforts.

That’s only to be expected, that’s why that media is secondary, like remora leaching off a shark. Their very extremism is what draws people to them so they get the attention they want and money from ads. Virtuous is not the word to describe this media level. Bias and extremism is their bread and butter

That’s just now, about the secondary media. But FoxNews Bias Alert has gone after first line news media like CNN and MSNBC big time, and rightly so, but more rightly so MSNBC. CNN as been trying to lean as left as possible without appearing to do so except for people like Soledad O’Brien. But MSNBC, and Chris Matthews with his reverse Klan-like remarks, is outright offensive. MSNBC has adopted the motto, “Lean Forward” as a play on the “Forward” motto of the Obama campaign committee. But to me it is “Lean Backwards” to a time of bigotry, no civil rights, race baiting and whipping up hatred. As I said, Klan-like techniques used by the left against the right.

CNN does walk a line and leans right on occasion. But what CNN does seems to be to be able to show their balance. But reading it long-term you get the sense of the reporting not being balanced. What CNN is doing is worse then MSNBC in terms of integrity. MSNBC hangs a sign that says, “warning, rabid dog, enter at your own risk”. CNN tries to pull the wool over your eyes and believes in the PT Barnum saying, “there’s a sucker born every minute”

This is unacceptable bias and unreasonable for news media that is suppose to be reporting and letting people form their own opinions instead of giving a person their (you) opinion. But is there acceptable bias? I believe yes.

The Fox Bias Alert has lambasted the NY Times for endorsing and supporting Pres Obama. But that has been the province of newspapers since newspapers began. How many times have you seen a list of endorsements for a candidate and that list includes (or not) a newspaper. The NYT has made their intent clear and you read what they write with that in mind.

The FoxNews Bias Alert needs to learn the difference between bias and bigotry. Bias (and prejudice) means making choices of whom you favor. But bigotry and racism (straight-up or reverse) have no place in our lives.

And to be clear about bias and prejudice, I am both. My family comes first, then friends, then close acquaintances and so on and on. And when I am selecting a candidate to vote for, I think of those people and, hopefully, what serves them best.
