‘It Was on the News!’

See the source image

I’m in the doctor’s office, waiting to pay my bill, and two women behind the counter were arguing about whether their iPhone could or couldn’t do a certain thing. The one had her phone in her hand and said, “Look! See! It can’t do that!”

But the other only said, and she must have said it twenty times, “But I saw it on the news! It was on the news!”

So “the news” is now the gold standard of absolute truth? Even trumping the evidence of your own senses? If it’s on the news, it must be true?

What about stuff that wasn’t on the news? Never happened? Doesn’t exist? Can’t be true because it wasn’t on the news? I think of people that I know who never heard of the Climategate scandal because the Democrat TV nooze refused to report it. This was proof, beyond a reasonable doubt, that the whole Climbit Change business is a fraud. But no–it wasn’t on the news. Global Warming was, though, so Global Warming must be true.

Even when the noozies aren’t just plain lying to us, or suppressing unwelcome information, leaving things out that would otherwise refute The Narrative, the nooze can always fall back on sloppiness or ignorance. I have been a reporter and an editor: I know. Very little effort is made, anymore, to tell the truth.

There were, of course, other news outlets, many of them from Britain, that did bother to report Climategate. With a little extra effort, and the Internet, you could find out all about it. But if you’re just going to sit in front of Democrat TV and take only what they give you, there’s no hope you’ll ever get the straight story. It’s distressing to think there are so many people out there to whom that description applies.

The power of the nooze media is a terrible thing, and it’s doing us no good.

The ‘We Was Hacked!’ Defense

Every bit as good as the “Everybody Does It” Defense, albeit not quite so universally applicable, is the “We Was Hacked!” Defense.

This was pioneered in 2009 when hackers got into the computers at the Climate Change Unit at East Anglia University, UK, and released thousands of confidential emails that proved, beyond even an unreasonable doubt, that the whole Global Warming jihad rested on lies, suppression of data, intimidation of critics, political payoffs, and other misdeeds: the scandal known as “Climategate.” If you don’t know much about it, that’s because the “mainstream” nooze media did their utmost to bury the story.

Here’s the argument: You are not allowed to consider all this chicanery because the information was obtained by hackers. Never mind that if it weren’t for the hackers, we never would have known about it. You have to ignore it, and still believe in Man-Made Climate Change, because… hackers provided all that information and hacking isn’t nice!

The success of this gambit inspired Democrats to resort to it again, after Donald Trump’s election as president. “Russian hackers made us lose! No fair!”

Thanks to hackers, thanks to Wikileaks, we learned some unsavory things about Hillary Clinton and her mob. To wit:

The DNC rigged the Democrat primary against Bernie Sanders. But you’re not allowed to know that.

Big-time “journalists” actively colluded with the Clinton campaign, and some of them were paid for it. But you’re not allowed to know that.

Off camera, candidate Hillary was anything but “presidential”–cursing people out, flying into rages, throwing things at staffers, and drinking herself silly now and then. But you’re not allowed to know that.

And of course there was much, much more, none of it flattering to Team Hillary. But we weren’t supposed to know about it. And we wouldn’t have, if not for hackers.

Consider this bizarre argument. Because the information was put out by hackers, we are expected to disregard the lying, the cheating, the bribery, and the candidate’s profound dishonesty, plus her revolting personality–and goldarn it, that whole election oughta be overturned because the Russians and Wikileaks hacked the Democrats’ emails! All that stuff was supposed to be a secret! No fair, no fair!

Absent from the discussion is any serious attempt to claim the information wasn’t true. Well, that wouldn’t get them very far, would it?

All right, it’s too bad we have to rely on hackers to get the truth about our politicians and our–ahem!–scientists.

But coming from the crowd who praised the stolen “Pentagon Papers” as the greatest act of public spirit since Paul Revere climbed onto his horse, it rings a bit hollow.


Lest We Forget: Climategate

I don’t know for how long this satire will display here, so enjoy it while you can. It’s been around for several years. They keep getting rid of it, but it keeps coming back. Sometimes truth does that.

What with the New York Times fiction publication trying to present President-elect Donald Trump (guess how much I enjoy typing that!) as suddenly betraying his voters and converting to Global Warming Voodoo, two things must be clearly said.

  1. Trump threw Climategate (see video) right back at the alleged journalists.
  2. Everything you’ve ever heard said about Man-Made Climate Change is at best poppycock, and at worst a deliberate lie cooked up by statists who want unlimited powers to interfere in your lives.

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. ( http://jamesdelingpole.com/tag/climategate/ )

It’s Never Their Fault

So we’ve all heard by now how thousands of leaked emails prove that the Democrat National Committee cheated joke candidate Bernie Sanders, and arranged for Hillary Clinton to win its presidential nomination. There’s no evidence they contemplated poisoning Sanders.

On my car radio this morning, I heard the “counter-narrative”–I’m pretty sure that means “self-serving lie”–offered by some Democrat bigwig.

The Russians are to blame.

Yep. You shouldn’t be mad at the Democrats for rigging an election. No: you should be mad at Russian hackers for blowing the whistle on them. The hackers are no better than thieves.

I dunno. They stole emails. Hillary stole a presidential nomination.

But we have heard this bizarre excuse before. Remember Climategate? Remember those thousands of leaked emails that showed the “scientists” at the East Anglia U. Climate Change Panel lying and cheating six ways from Sunday, so they could impose their will on us.

And then when it all came out, why, all the official political and nooze media indignation was directed not at the lying, cheating schlubs at East Anglia, but at the hackers! They’re to blame! They’re no better than thieves.

I dunno. They stole emails. The so-called scientists are trying to steal the whole  planet out from under us.

And so, even as the hackers wound up being the bad guys for exposing the “scientists” as scheming frauds, so the Democrats hope to spin this current scandal.

Think about it real, real hard, everybody. Do you really want these people running your country? Really?

Global warming Gang Asks Obama to Prosecute Skeptics

So how does science get settled, these days? We are told that science is the absolute authority, the sole proprietor of Truth. But how is it decided what Truth is?

Why, that’s easy. Whoever holds the keys to the jailhouse holds the keys to Science. The way to win any scientific debate is by making threats of violence. And it goes way beyond “Shut up or I’ll punch ya in the nose!”

What, you don’t believe that? But a group of 20 prominent “climate scientists” have asked President *Batteries Not Included–a lawless man, if ever there was one–to have “deniers” prosecuted under RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations), a statute created to control organized crime ( http://dailycaller.com/2015/09/17/scientists-ask-obama-to-prosecute-global-warming-skeptics/ ).

See, not agreeing with them about Global Warming means you must be part of a criminal conspiracy, and you must be thrown in jail so that Big Government can get on with its mission to become even bigger, with government-approved “scientists” as its infallible advisers and oracles. If you question or disbelieve their claim that Man-Made Global Warming gonna burn up the world and we all gonna die, unless we give gigantic new powers to a government already grown colossal in its arrogance and its pretensions, you are an Enemy of the People. You are trying to stop our all-wise, all-powerful scientists and politicians from Saving the Planet.

You must be jailed.

That’s how science gets settled. In this lawless age, science must be lawless, too.
