Memory Lane: Cheap Junk You Could Order through Comic Books

Ah! The treasures to be found in comic books! At least they looked like treasures, if you were ten years old in 1959.

This video shows you what some of those things turned out to be when you finally got them. So if you ever wondered if that “Learn to throw your voice!” trick really worked, here’s your chance to find out.

It reminds me of the “Authentic Davy Crockett Log Cabin!” that I badgered my folks into sending away for. You can to collect labels from a certain brain of maple syrup–which entailed buying a lot of syrup, because my brother had to have an Authentic Davy Crockett Log Cabin too.

Imagine our emotional devestation when the Authentic Davy Crockett Log Cabin turned out to be a crummy little cardboard box that looked like a crummy little cardboard box. Even a cardboard Davy Crockett wouldn’t be caught dead in there.

Oh, well, we’ve all grown up, we’re more sophisticated now. So now instead of an Authentic Davy Crockett Log Cabin made out of genuine cardboard, they pitch us Climate Change instead.

The Lie that Will Not Die: ‘Climate Change’

Considering that the Democrat platform in this election says they’re gonna have the Attorney General (the almost unbelievably corrupt Loretta Lynch) “investigate” certain folks who don’t believe in “Man-Made Climate Change” (aka “Global Warming” when the weather’s hot), this is still an issue, even if not many people are talking about it lately.

What throws me is the way the climate alarmists keep on getting away with it, even though it has been abundantly demonstrated that they’re lying and cheating like mad. Why do they keep pushing it? Why is my chess forum so regularly visited by persons who say “Al Gore doesn’t lie”?

I stumbled upon a teeny-weeny little fact yesterday that helps me to understand why this big fat lie just will not die.

The New York Times refused to cover Climategate.

If you get your information from the Clinton nooze media, you may be asking yourself, “Huh? Climategate? What’s Climategate?”

In 2009, hackers leaked thousands of emails from scientists of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, in England. In those emails, “climate scientists” candidly discussed among themselves how best to deceive the public, their frustration over temperature data that didn’t support their Global Warming narrative, how to bury unsupportive data, how to get their critics grants taken away, how to get their critics’ children kicked out of college–whoa, now! Is that Settled Science, or what? The emails prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the “climate scientists” are mountebanks and political gamesters.

The New York Times refused to cover Climategate.

Why? Oh, because the information was hacked! And hacking is sooo wrong!

This is the same New York Times that gleefully made hay with “the Pentagon Papers,” stolen from the Dept. of Defense, and has openly defied the law by publishing Donald Trump’s confidential tax information.

But no Climategate: because, after all, that’s from hackers!

Ditto for the rest of the nooze media. They stonewalled the story, and to this day, much of the public has never heard it.

If you want to bone up on Climategate, there is abundant material from free-lance journalist James Dellingpole. ( )

Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire!

Polar ice cap–it ain’t supposed to be there, but it is!

Yet another government agency (in addition to NASA and NOAA) has been caught lying and cheating to beef up their Climate Change alarmist agenda–this time it’s the National Snow and Ice Data Center ( ).

And what have they done? Oh, the usual bag of tricks–fiddle with their computer models to get the results they want, get rid of data that won’t support their position, seal off their archives so stop anyone from seeing what they’ve been up to, etc.

And this in an election year in which the Democrat Party has pledged itself to “investigate Climate Change deniers” for possible criminal activity–like not believing in Global Warming–and empowering Loretta Lunch to throw ’em all in jail.

That’s how Science gets “settled” nowadays–whoever has the key to the jailhouse gets to be right.

Climate Change Cheats Caught Again

This is getting to be like reporting “dog bites man”: Once again, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has been caught cheating in an effort to sell “man-made climate change” ( ).

This time NOAA rushed to publicize, before a scientific peer review could be completed, “research” that supposedly shows that human activity caused torrential rains in Louisiana. Gee, I wonder why no one thought of performing that activity in the Gobi Desert.

University of Colorado’s senior climate scientist, Roger Pielke Sr., called NOAA’s rush to publication, and extravagant claims, “manipulation of science for political reasons.” Ya think? He also rapped NOAA for studying man-made computer models instead of nature. What a pill. Everybody knows computer models are much easier to study–and a lot more cooperative, too.

Please always bear in mind this general principle:

When a certain public policy is strongly advocated by persons with well-earned reputations as liars, swindlers, and thieves, and where such a policy, if enacted into law, would bring them fabulous wealth and greatly enlarge their political power… do not under any circumstances believe them.

They’ve Got Something to Hide

Three-card monte–it’s more on the level than Global Warming.

Hey! Remember,  back in the summer, when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), an agency of the federal government, got caught fudging its figures, lying about temperature readings, and generally resorting to fraud to push its Global Warming agenda? ( )

Well, now the merry pranksters at NOAA have refused a Congressional subpoena to turn over emails and other data that might expose the extent of their lying and cheating ( ). By law, to refuse a Congressional subpoena constitutes contempt of Congress, a criminal offense punishable by imprisonment.

Not that anyone in the Obama administration worries about the law.

Rep. Lamar Smith, chairman of the oversight committee probing NOAA’s activities, had this to say:

“The American people have every right to be suspicious when NOAA alters data to get the politically correct results they want and then refuses to reveal how those decisions were made.”

If you still believe in Global Warming, if you still believe in “climate scientists,” consider NOAA’s behavior.

This is not how honest men behave.

There is no man-made Global Warming. If there is such a thing as climate change, it is a natural process on a living planet, and it has always been with us–long before SUVs or air conditioning.

The whole thing is a scam. Its sole purpose is to strip us of our money and our liberties.
