A Liberal is a Conservative Who Just Got Selfish

There is an old saying, “A conservative is a liberal who just got mugged.” In a pathetic attempt to reverse this path to enlightenment, Yahoo News is highlighting an op-ed by one Jerry Adler, opining that “perhaps tomorrow’s liberal is a conservative whose house just got flooded.” The flood reference is a lame attempt to exploit Hurricane Harvey as some sort of wake-up...

Oops! Climate Cultist Destroys Own Position

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has been doing the leftist media interview circuit recently, pressing his peculiar thesis that professional (i.e., paid) scientists are a superior class of humans whose conclusions are intrinsically beyond reproach and must therefore be accepted blindly by unscientific lunks like you. In each of these interviews, a non-climate-scientist asks a series of pre-determined questions designed to elicit rehearsed responses...

Neil deGrasse Tyson “Destroys” Climate Denial!

A fabulous example of the circular reasoning of climate change “consensus” appears via leftist propaganda machine Yahoo News. The headline smugly declares that popular scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson “destroys climate change deniers’ favorite argument in 1 tweet.” Quite a claim, on multiple fronts! “Destroys.” “Favorite argument.” “1 tweet.” Imagine that: scientific debates resolved by sound bites. The condescension is mesmerizing! Are you ready...

Revisiting the Paris Climate Accord

Back in 2015, when the Paris Climate Accord was as new, and seemed as natural, as John Kerry’s latest face shape, I wrote at American Thinker about the Accord’s content, meaning, and intentions. Today, as some people with short attention spans cheer Donald Trump’s announced pull-out from the Paris deal, I’d like to look back at what I wrote, before assessing the content, meaning, and likely...

Dr. McConnell and Mr. Trump (Part II)

So here it is, folks. You knew it was coming. (If not, you probably would have stopped reading my writing and catalogued me among the establishment hack cuckservative beta males a long time ago.) The most obvious and implausible fraud in U.S. history has already begun to reap its full America-destroying harvest. The big rebel-outsider-burn-it-down-Make-America-Great-Again-groper-in-chief has now met with Al Gore to “discuss”...

Mann vs. Steyn: Heresy Shall be Crushed

(Originally published in July 2013) Remember when scientists and other truth-seekers used to get all riled up about the way the Catholic Church treated Galileo? The outcry was not over the fact that Galileo was a “peer-reviewed” researcher, and therefore beyond question. Quite the contrary: the argument was that, from the point of view of the quest for truth, no one, including the...

Logic Gets Sucked into the Polar Vortex

(Originally published in January 2014) There is a new bogeyman in town. His name is Polar Vortex. He has been around forever, and has hitherto lived in obscurity as just another natural phenomenon. But against all odds, he has suddenly found satisfying new employment and fame as this year’s leading argument for tyranny. North America is presently experiencing the kind of abnormally cold...

Where are the Global Warmists for Freedom?

Global warming “admitters” — to distinguish you from those of us you call “deniers” — I have a question for you: Do any of you have an answer to the cataclysm your settled science has proven beyond any possible doubt is coming which does not require totalitarian measures? Let me rephrase that, in case the connotations of the phrase “totalitarian measures” have not...

Global Warming: The Evidence is Endless

If I believed the Earth were slowly turning into cheddar cheese, I could invoke this hypothesis to explain a lot of things. Why is the rat population in our major cities growing so quickly? Earth cheesification is providing more rat food. Why have there been so many earthquakes lately? The cheesification of the tectonic plates has made them less resistant to sudden shifts. Why...

Prediction: Global Warming Will Cause Everything

(Originally published in June 2012) The following news headline appeared on the internet this week: “Scientists warn global warming will fuel spread of ticks that carry Lyme disease.” The corresponding article begins this way: Another effect of climate change may be crawling up your leg this summer as you frolic in the woods. Scientists say our warming world is speeding the spread of...
