The Arrogance of Ignorance

See the source image

Hey, boys ‘n’ girls! Oops, sorry–shoulda said “purple penguins,” ’cause there’s like 50 different genders. Anyway–wanna *Save The Planet*? Of course you do!

The perky publicist has invited me to review a book by a sage, all of 17 years old, on how to  “stop catastrophic damages to the place we all call home.” How to “stop” it, eh? Ya mean, like hitting the “off” switch?

I wonder if we can guess where this precious little tyke is coming from. Hmm… Here’s a chapter called “Bye, Bye Big Business.” It’s about how “major corporations” stop Climbit Change legislation and “how young people can prevent this from happening.” Doubtless by electing Far Left Crazy Democrats and enacting the Green New Deal… just as soon as the Constitution is repealed.

I hope it goes without saying that I don’t mean for this to be insulting to teenagers in general. I really like their company, they’re good for me. I love it that a few teens have joined this blog, and I hope more will follow.

But having been a 17-year-old myself, I think I can state with perfect confidence that it would have been the height of folly to take me, at that age, for any kind of public policy adviser. So easy to be taken for a ride by one’s college professors, et al. And when adults praise you, it goes right to your head. Just tell us we’re really smart, and we’ll eat out of your hand. Been there, done that.

I’m not going to give this kid’s name, in hopes that he’ll grow out of this, nor the title of the book, because I don’t want anyone to blame me if they buy it.

All you need to know about “Climate Science” is that Far Left Crazy sees it as their ticket to a global government.


The Age of Krazy Krap

See the source image

I’m not laughing as much as I ought to at all the krazy krap pouring out of liberals’ minds and mouths these days.

I mean, it should be funny–right?–when liberals demand Open Borders and then freak out when President Trump offers to release hordes of illegal aliens into liberal-run sanctuary cities. Sure, it’s funny. But what’s not so funny is that the leftids’ own towering hypocrisy is completely invisible to them. You offer to give them what they say they want, and then they don’t want it. And so they continue to press for Open Borders for all the rest of us.

Yes, it was high comedy when Mitch McConnell put up the Democrats’ Green New Deal for a vote in the Senate, and they not only cried “Foul!” with wailing and gnashing of teeth–but couldn’t find it in themselves to vote in favor of their own utopian fun pack. That was a hoot. But it’s not funny that they continue to demand all these restrictions for the rest of us.

Fifty-odd “genders” ought to be a scream, and of course we ought to laugh at it. But when they want to make it a criminal offense not to acquiesce to this delusion, that’s not exactly a knee-slapper.

They insist the world is gonna end in just 12 years if we don’t give them everything they want–To Save The Planet, don’t you know–and that ought to have us rolling in the aisles. But their 2016 party platform, the platform their presidential candidate ran on, called for the attorney general to “investigate” the crime of Climate Change Denial–the crime of not believing in their apocalyptic piffle.

Mr. Bean, the Three Stooges, Abbot and Costello, and Laurel and Hardy put together couldn’t match the high goofiness created by liberals today. It’s not just that their ideas are wrong. It’s that their ideas are flagrantly, monumentally, hysterically, out-to-lunch wrong. To the point where we really have to wonder if they’re quite all there.

The thought of them ever again winning an election… Well, that’s not funny at all.


Green New Deal Gets… Zero Votes!

See the source image

Well, there you have it: they tell us the world’s gonna end in 12 years and we’re all gonna die unless we do exactly what they say–and then, when they get a chance to vote for it in the U.S. Senate, not one Democrat Senator, no, not one, voted yesterday for their precious “Green New Deal.”

What? Do they not care that we’re all freakin’ doomed? They told us that we have to do these things! Stop all use of fossil fuels. Guaranteed income for layabouts who refuse to work. No more private home ownership. No more cars. They go on and on about it; and then, when they get a chance to go on the record for it, they all vote “present”!

Yup, that’s what they did in the U.S. Senate yesterday. Fifty-three Republican senators, plus three Democrats who didn’t dare ever to go home again unless they voted “no,” voted against the Green New Deal; and 42 Democrat senators voted “present.” In the same sense that a pineapple or an ashtray would be “present.”

Like we’ve been observing all along, the Climbit Change crowd doesn’t believe a single word they say: it’s all for consumption by the stupid masses. Our rulers mean to rule us whether we like it or not.

They need an attitude adjustment.

Anyway, they couldn’t bring themselves to vote in favor of their own Green New Deal that they invented and pitched to us as absolutely necessary as the only possible way to escape Doomsday.

When a chef can’t be made to take a single forkful of the meal that he’s prepared for someone else, think poison.


Tomorrow! Teens to March for ‘Climate Justice’

See the source image

There must be something more shameful than allowing children to lecture adults, but I’m sure I can’t imagine what it is.

Quick! How many nanoseconds will it take you to think of a better idea than leaving huge public policy decisions up to teenagers?

If all goes well for Far Left Crazy–sometimes it just sort of fizzles out–tomorrow will see kazillions of teenagers all over America walk out of school to demand “climate justice,” whatever the deuce that is, as part of a world-wide Youth Climate Strike (https://www.ecowatch.com/youth-climate-strike-2627959531.html). Oh, well, if I’d had a chance to get applauded for walking out of school, I’d have done it, too.

Says a 13-year-old “organizer” of the event, “People are dying right now, and we need to #ActOnClimate!”, hashtags and all. *Sigh* A 15-year-old demands “immediate action” by the government: “We need a Green New Deal!” Let’s see what he says if they really get the Green New Deal and they tell him he can never have a car.

This incredible spontaneous movement by children is “supported by environmental groups” with cool names like “Extinction Rebellion.” We are asked to believe that no adults, motivated by any wacko political agenda, put the kids up to this. And if you believe that…

This is the culmination of years of work by public “educators” to reduce whole generations to slavish obedience to whatever the government and Science spoon-feed them in the classroom, on the TV nooze, and in superhero movies. This is babble for the rabble. The massive ignorance needed to fuel such a movement staggers the mind. All they know is that the world is gonna end in just 12 years and everybody’s gonna die unless the devouring state is given absolute power over everyone and everything.

And we paid for it! We paid for the club that’s going to come down on our heads.

For how much longer do they get to abuse us before we shut off the flow of the money?


Climate Cult: ‘This is How We Stopped Climate Change’

See the source image

Honest, you’ll like it! (Or else)

Paid for by the defenseless American taxpayer, National Public Radio recently featured “It’s 2050, and This Is How We Stopped Climate Change” (https://knpr.org/npr/2019-03/its-2050-and-how-we-stopped-climate-change). Yowsah, yowsah, “A world without climate change!”

Where do you even begin, with such fat-headed hubris? A world without climate change? Hey, aren’t you guys the ones who are always clubbing us over the head with “settled science”? Do any of you have a Geology 101 textbook? Aren’t you supposed to be able to look at the rocks and tell what happened in the past? I mean, how did all those seashells wind up on the tops of mountains? What are all those whale fossils doing in the middle of the Sahara Desert? Think there might have been some climate change involved there? Don’t you bother to learn your own “science”?

So where the devil was this “world without climate change”? Oh–what’s that? It couldn’t happen until you guys came along, to make it happen? Hubris, man. That’s hubris.

Anyway, here’s how they’re gonna “stop climate change” by 2050, creating a paradise on earth.

*Solar and wind power will replace any and all other methods of generating electricity, giving us a “zero-carbon world.” See, we gotta have zero greenhouse gases by 2050, or we’re all gonna die. Or something.

*”Urbanization of everything”! Oh, peachy. No more suburbs allowed, no more cars, no more private homes, shove five families into every house–a la the Soviet Union, circa 1930. All housing will be multifamily housing, you’ll walk to work and like it, and no one, but no one, will ever be stressed out by being forced to live without space, without privacy.

Wait a minute–hasn’t that book already been written? Sure it has: The Hunger Games. They want us to live like we’re in The Hunger Games.

*Cut way back on the consumption of beef, replacing it with lots and lots of artificial food brewed up in the labs (“Soylent Green is people”) and it will taste real good, you won’t want White Castles anymore.

What do you want to bet our noble and glorious leaders, and their pet savants of Science, will continue to enjoy lavish mansions, private jets, limousines, and all the beef they can stuff into their mouths with both hands?

Boy, if we actually let them do this stuff to us–! Well, then we’d deserve it, wouldn’t we?

O-Crazy-O Cortez: No More Babies

See the source image

“I’m the boss!” crowed Democrat Socialist Congressthingy Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who a year ago was working as a bartender. But now she lays it on the line for critics of her “Green New Deal.” Until they can come up with something even more ridiculous, she’s the boss.

Meanwhile, she has cited a “scientific consensus” on Climbit Change as a reason for people not to have babies anymore (https://www.dailywire.com/news/43880/ocasio-cortez-people-maybe-shouldnt-reproduce-due-ryan-saavedra). Well, gee, Craze–aren’t you Democrats trying to kill as many babies as you can rush to the abortionist? Someone asked “Is it OK to still have children?” Well, sort of. You don’t want to put Planned Parenthood out of business.

Craze also took a chunk out of another mask-of-sanity Democrat, California Senator Dianne Feinstein, who doesn’t seem all that hot to submit to Craze’s boss-ship. But Feinstein and the rest of the Old Guard, says Craze, are “not good enough. Her watered-down [legislative] proposals are frankly going to kill us.”

To recapitulate, Craze’s Green New Deal includes non-watered-down proposals to demolish every building in America and replace it with a new one, phase out air travel, phase out all “traditional sources of energy” and replace them with sources that don’t work, provide a guaranteed income for everyone, including those “unwilling to work,” no more private ownership of cars, and anything else they can think of… ’cause she’s the boss now.

When you don’t vote Republican, this is what you get.


My Newswithviews Column, Feb. 21 (‘Educating Ourselves into Oblivion’)

Should schooling make you stupid? We think not–but that’s what it’s doing. It’s also sucking up vast amounts of money that would be better spent on almost anything else.

https://newswithviews.com/educating-ourselves-into-oblivion/

One thing can’t be denied: Kill public education, and leftism dies.

The system’s ruined beyond repair, and most be junked and replaced.


King Rehoboam’s ‘New Deal’

See the source image

When King Solomon died, his son, Rehoboam, succeeded him. Trying to decide what kind of king he ought to be, Rehoboam first sought advice from his father’s counselors.

They gave him good advice. Ease up on taxes, Solomon’s many building programs having pretty much depleted the nation’s wealth. “If thou wilt be a servant unto this people this day, and wilt serve them, and answer them, and speak good words to them, then they will be thy servants forever” (1 Kings 12:7). But Rehoboam “forsook the counsel of the old men… and consulted with the young men that were grown up with him” (v. 8).

Yes, he took the young men’s advice instead; and when the tribes of Israel came together to hear him, he laid out his program–every bit as daft as today’s Democrats’ “Green New Deal.” Here’s what he said.

“My father made your yoke heavy, and I will add to your yoke: my father also chastised you with whips, but I will chastise you with scorpions [whips with metal blades]” (v. 14). Heavier taxes, more penalties. Yeah, that’ll work.

And that was the end of the Kingdom of Israel as known to David and Solomon. Ten of the tribes revolted against the new king and founded another kingdom under Solomon’s former servant, Jeroboam. Israel would not be one nation again until our own time, some 3,000 years later.

Let us pray that the arrogance and folly of some of our own leaders doesn’t do the same to the United States.

Their counsels need to be rejected and defeated. God grant us the wisdom and the strength to do that.


My Newswithviews Column, Feb. 14 (‘Just How Crazy is Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal?’)

See the source image

I can’t stop wondering : are Democrats really and truly this far gone? Why would they ever make public a scheme to totally destroy our nation’s economy, social fabric, and political institutions? How crazy are they?

https://newswithviews.com/just-how-crazy-is-ocasio-cortezs-green-new-deal/

Now, I haven’t heard from anybody who thinks any of this is a good idea–but such people must exist, because the Democrat Party exists. The crazies need candidates to vote for, and the candidates need crazy voters.
