An Imperial Presidency

Let's build a time machine

I keep hearing from the Branch Gorevidians that if we simply spend the money to develop renewable energy sources it will fuel our future Utopia.

Never mind the trillions spent by private and public entities to develop this technology over the past 200 plus years. If you spend it, it will come. It's like believing that if you spend enough money you can do time travel.

Well, Google has finally gotten the hint...............

Two highly qualified Google engineers who have spent years studying and trying to improve renewable energy technology have stated quite bluntly that renewables will never permit the human race to cut CO2 emissions to the levels demanded by climate activists. Whatever the future holds, it is not a renewables-powered civilisation: such a thing is impossible.

Both men are Stanford PhDs, Ross Koningstein having trained in aerospace engineering and David Fork in applied physics. These aren't guys who fiddle about with websites or data analytics or "technology" of that sort: they are real engineers who understand difficult maths and physics, and top-bracket even among that distinguished company. The duo were employed at Google on the RE

REclosed it down
after four years. Now, Koningstein and Fork have explained the conclusions they came to after a lengthy period of applying their considerable technological expertise to renewables, in an article posted at IEEE Spectrum.
The two men write:
At the start of RE
Renewable energy technologies simply won’t work; we need a fundamentally different approach.

Obama Switches Up Stance on Executive Action

Democrats. the party of the lawless

I've been balled up all week about the Obamunists taking over DC and I've struggled with what bothers me the most about Democrats in general and Obama specifically.

Here's what I've come up with. If you are a ding dong, derelict or douche bag, you get the attention of the Obamunists. If you go to work, raise your kids, pay your bills............what the hell is wrong with you.

Take for instance...............

1) If you owe the IRS over 4 million in back taxes, are responsible for the deaths of people in NYC and tarnished the reputation of a NYPD office, you get invitations to the White House. Meet Al Sharpton.

2) If you are an accused child rapist but a good bundler for the president, you get a ride on Air Force One. Meet Terrence Bean.

3) If you desert your military post, the president will negotiate your release with money and terrorists. Meet Bowe Bergdahl. If you accidentally drive into Mexico and are wrongly incarcerated, the administration, nor our military, will pick up the telephone to call an alleged ally to get you out. Meet Andrew Tomooressi.

4) If you come into this country illegally, you get the red carpet treatment. If you followed the law, spent lots of money, time and resources to be a citizen legally. Well.......... you are just a dumbass.

Anyone catching a pattern here?

Governments never lie

This is really becoming a trend.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has published a remarkable letter (PDF) this morning in which the Department of Justice admits its lawyer misled a panel of judges during oral arguments last month over the legality of National Security Letters, or NSLs.

To the surprise of some observers, during his rebuttal, Justice Department lawyer Douglas Letter told the three judges that recipients of NSLs could, in fact, speak about the letters in general terms. They could discuss the fact that they had received a letter and could engage in public debate about the "quality" of the NSLs they had received, he said.

But actually, they can't. Letter's statements contradicted longstanding policy, and EFF apparently asked the DOJ for clarification. The result is that DOJ has sent a note to the Clerk of Court for the 9th Circuit to correct the error, clearing up "an inadvertent misstatement by government counsel during the rebuttal portion of the argument."


Animal Farm

You know about that war on women.

Look at what those misogynist republicans did to one of their own.........

Rep. Tammy Duckworth of Illinois, who is expecting a baby in December, is being denied a request to vote by proxy in the House Democratic Caucus leadership and committee member elections next week—even though her doctor advises she can’t travel to Washington in the late stages of her pregnancy.

Denying someone the right to vote?

I guess the democrats can speak to it since they employe it so often.

Life in "Progress" City - Baltimore edition

A recent report shows that Baltimore is one of the few U.S. cities to rank in a list of the worst cities in the world for violence.

The report on Business Insider says Baltimore is number 36, with about 38 homicides per every 100,000 residents.

It is one of a handful of U.S. cities on the list, which also includes St. Louis at No. 45, New Orleans at No. 26, and Detroit at No. 24. 

Now for my question.  St. Louis, New Orleans, Detroit and Baltimore are almost exclusively democratic cities. You can't find a republican there with a search warrant and Dog the Bounty Hunter.

So are these cities violent because they're democratic or are they democratic because they're so violent?


Jonathan Gruber brags about the "basic exploitation" of American voters

The bottom line with all these videos is that ultimately they really portray the belief among the "elite" that the uncleansed masses are too stooopid to know what they really want/need.
