Help spread the hysteria: Create the next scary weather term and win the accolades of the climate cult.

Published

on

It used to be that wintertime was cold and summertime was hot. Then the climate cult decided that using words and phrases that made sense failed to galvanize people to fear ‘global cooling’ or ‘global warming and donate cash to Al Gore. Mundane terms like winter storm or even ‘nor’easter’ didn’t garner any notice so phrases such as ‘Polar Vortex’ or ‘Bomb cyclone’ had to be conjured up to grab attention.

Consider these reports about a recent winter storm:

[Washington Post] First, a monster ocean storm is taking shape, which pasted parts of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina with rare ice and snow early Wednesday. By Thursday, the exploding storm will, in many ways, resemble a winter hurricane, battering easternmost New England with potentially damaging winds in addition to blinding snow. Blizzard warnings have been issued for the Virginia Tidewater region up the coast to eastern Maine, including Ocean City, Atlantic City, eastern Long Island, Boston and Portland.

[Boston Herald]The powerful nor’easter barreling up the coast will “explode” tomorrow into bombogenesis — a cyclone of snow that could dump a foot on Greater Boston, meteorologists warn.

This used to be called ‘winter’ and people expected it to be cold and snowy, just like the summer was hot and humid. But alas, those everyday terms don’t scare anyone and worse yet they can’t get people to give up their liberty and purchase climate indulgences. Problem is, even labeling something an ‘exploding’ ‘monster ocean storm’ of the ‘bombogenesis’ variety and calling it a ‘cyclone of snow’ will only terrify people for a limited amount of time.

This is where we can help the climate cult terrorize a new generation, surrender their freedom and donate to them. Because if anything can stop a monstrous bomb cyclone exploding on the scene, it would be cold hard cash to pay Al Gore’s power bill.

So, how does one create a new scary weather term? Good question! Glad we asked it.

Well, first, it has to have some sort of word signifying an immense and sudden power impulse – such as ‘Bomb, exploding, etc.’ Of course, it must have something implying atmospheric turbulence and chaos brought on by climate change. Throw in an extra word denoting the Arctic region and look out for the grant avalanche.

So we will have three columns of the various terms to be combined to see which sound the scariest.

Column 1

Bomb
Blasting
Explode
Explosive
Annihilate
Blow up
Burst
Destroy
Nuclear
Hydrogen bomb
Dynamite
Shatter
Wither
Wreck
Detonate

Column 2

Hurricane
Tornado
Cyclone
Twister
Maelstrom
Torrent
Whirlwind

Column 3

Icy
Arctic
Freezing
Extreme
Siberian

Blizzard
Bitter
Frozen
Intense
Polar
Severe

 

We can also just coin new words combining terms for tropical weather for arctic maelstroms.

Blizzard + Hurricane Blizzarcane

Arctic + Tornado Arcnado

So have at. Who knows, by next year people could be running scared with new creations we created here!

Differential equations teaches us that one can use the initial conditions of the present to extrapolate events in the near term balanced with the knowledge of the past. The interaction of technological advances and the march of history is fascinating. History can inform those willing to listen as to what will happen in the future because the laws of human natural are as immutable as the elegant equations of Newtonian physics.

Being American doesn’t mean ignoring facts. Ron Paul right about Trump-Putin meeting.

Published

on

In the era of torn Russian relations, Ron Paul takes a step back and views more information than almost any pundit on air or on twitter. It’s bipartisan to hate Russian, and that causes many Americans to hold inconsistent views on foreign policy issues related to Russia.

The media’s coverage on all things related to Russia was bad before it’s terrible coverage of Trump. We need a balanced factual approach to foreign relations with Russia. Not everything is Russia’s fault. America needs a new approach to Russia, and Trump can bring that.

John Kerry spent so much time picking losing battles with Russia and the United States needs to move on from these geopolitical skirmishes. Part of this means throwing the Obama administration under the bus. Between John Kerry and Hillary Clinton, US interests in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe faced setbacks. Only then can we have a better relationship with Russia.

I appreciate Ron Paul’s perspective because, in an era of hot takes and the political popularity of Russia hating, he maintains a just perspective that embraces facts.

A short video making the point that the Left is no longer Liberal, having traded individualism for collectivism.

In one of their first animated video shorts, the Rubin Report discusses the vitally important topic of just who is a Classical Liberal.

OUR FIRST ANIMATED VIDEO! What is a Classical Liberal?

Liberalism has been confused with Leftism or progressivism, which is actually has nothing to do with classical Liberalism. Sadly the Left is no longer Liberal at all for it has traded individualism for collectivism.

FCC having second thoughts about creating state-run media

Published

on

It’s no mystery to even the casual observer of American politics that Donald Trump has little love for Freedom of the Press as he repeats his claim of “Fake News” like a broken record any time the news media reports about him unfavorably . . . even on foreign soil.

Days after kicking off his recent European trip with a “Good morning to Fake News media” during a bilateral meeting with NATO leadership, Trump broke out another classic on the eve of his #SurrenderSummit with his BFF Vladimir Putin—a man who murders journalists for sport. Using words that certainly pleased his host, Trump leveled a Soviet-styled claim that the American news media is “the enemy of the American people,” a claim he originally broke out over a year ago.

A few months following Trump’s original “enemy” tweet last year, Trump’s chairman of the FCC, Ajit Pai, reinstated an old rule that paved the way for a $3.9 billion TV merger between Sinclair Broadcast Group—Trump’s favorite news media company outside of FOX News—and Tribune Media. This rule change paved the way for Sinclair to own enough local stations to control over 70 percent of US households.

A few months after that rule change, the FCC eliminated another rule requiring TV stations to operate local studios within their licensed markets, thus opening the door for local news to be nationally broadcast from places like New York City and Washington, D.C.
Trump’s hatred of the free press aside, the FCC was creating the perfect environment for a new state-run media. And while originally dismissing this threat to the First Amendment, Pai is now questioning the wisdom of paving the way for Sinclair’s near monopoly. In a statement released yesterday, he said that he now has “serious concerns” about the merger.

In an effort to get the deal approved, Sinclair had proposed selling off some of its TV stations in exchange for the FCC’s endorsement. However, this was little more than a shell game because Sinclair would still control those stations. So, in a “why didn’t he see this before” explanation, Pai rejected the merger.

“The evidence we’ve received suggests that certain station divestitures that have been proposed to the FCC would allow Sinclair to control those stations in practice, even if not in name, in violation of the law.”

Pai’s decision could be the death-knell of the merger, but with Sinclair’s openly pro-Trump bias along with Trump’s desire to silence his critics in the media, I’ve got a sneaky suspicion that there’s still a “Dumb and Dumber” level of a chance that it could happen.
