Great Barrier Reef temps.

Addendum to my last post and to the great relief of the Weather Channel: An 1871 dataset of sea temperatures across the Great Barrier Reef in Australia has been compared to recent measurements logged at the same reef areas. No differences in temperature were found by Dr. Bill Johnson, leading him to conclude: “Alarming claims …

Yet more Weather Channel hysteria, campers.

Ok, this full-court press on the Weather Channel’s shilling for climate change is just amazing. When I think I’ve hit it pretty hard already they just crank it up ad astra. It makes you wonder if you live, like, 24/7 in a propaganda soup no matter the topic: 2/14/22 — “Serious Drought Worsens in Spain, …

A good place to start.

Namely, in trying to understand US dissembling about Russia, just factor into your thinking that there’s zero Russian advantage to invading Ukraine; all the rest is just manufactured hysteria. Moreover, note the complete absence from NATO and State Department maneuvering over eastern Europe of even the slightest recognition of any legitimate Russian interest in keeping …

Useless, feeble, back-stabbing conservatives — episode 361,673.

Two years after leaving the EU Britain has made almost none of the promised progress towards economic liberalisation. While Brussels hasn’t been helpful, libertarian ministers in the Tory government have been both conquered by the bureaucracy of the civil service and even turned into high spending statists. There has been no attempt to reduce the …

A side order of hypocrisy, garkon, svp.

But oddly, if you dare to point out fascists in Ukraine you’re told that such people are a small minority, that most of those on Maidan, and then supporting the post-Maidan government, were normal, decent, democratic folk, and you shouldn’t allow the presence of a “few extremists” to taint the “revolution of dignity” as a …

Full spectrum dominance.

The push for total censorship is relentless. You can’t say THAT and you certainly can’t say it THERE. WikiLeaks was a threat and they took care of that. The Drudge Report was a threat and they made him an offer he couldn’t refuse. Facebook, Twitter, etc. were potential threats and they got these “private companies” …

Would “sinister” be the right word for this?

Fifty percent? An increase of 32% in 49 years? In contrast to the idea that a globalist depopulation agenda would be the result of the die-off of billions and billions of people across the world, the actual realization of this pursuit appears to be much more subtle. That realization is also becoming harder and harder …

Pearls of expression.

Sen. Josh Hawley questioned the lust for war with Russia whereupon Jen Psaki accused him of “digesting Russian misinformation and parroting Russian talking points” and not being in alignement with “long-standing, bipartisan American values.” A ZeroHedge commenter had the perfect response: Soviet politics pure and simple. If you ask about the problem, then you are …

Russian thinking about encroachment.

No natural barriers divide Russia from the rest of Europe. Its defence against all four invasions from the West over four centuries was, therefore, vitally dependent on its ability to trade space for time and to exploit enormous distances—as well as brutal climate—to wear down attackers. Having a solid buffer zone along the country’s western …

Non-acoustical submarine detection.

Chilling stuff: “Rising importance of Non- Acoustic detection technologies of Stealthy.” By Rajesh Uppal, International Defense, Security and Technology, Inc. (CA, USA), 2/10/21.

Oh, Canada.

The corporate media in Canada is largely homogenous, liberal and unabashedly globalist. To them, anything outside of Toronto or Ottawa is “flyover country”. Anything that happens there doesn’t matter unless it’s some issue that can wrapped within a narrative of victimhood to shame the populace into believing their country is a structurally racist, carbon spewing …

The constant expansion of NATO has led to what the scholar Richard Sakwa calls a “fateful geographical paradox”: NATO, Sakwa says, now “exists to manage the risks created by its existence.” “Maté: The Ukraine Crisis, Sponsored By US Hegemony And War Profiteers.” By Aaron Maté, ZeroHedge, 1/27/22.

Thirty years of utterly wasted opportunity.

If the path forward is unpredictable, what got us here is easy to trace. The row over Ukraine is the outgrowth of an aggressive US posture toward Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union three decades ago, driven by hegemonic policymakers and war profiteers in Washington. Understanding that background is key to resolving the …

Behold. Sudden clarity on the disposition, number, and composition of Russian forces.

This from the Ukrainian Center of Defense Strategies: According to our estimates, supported by many of the indicators below, a large-scale general military operation can’t take place for at least the next two or three weeks. As of Jan. 23, we do not observe the required formation of several hundred thousand troops, not only on …

Why this relentless push for war?

If the current Drang nach Osten and demonization of Russia strike you as something pushed by genuinely unhinged people then this excerpt from a thoughtful article will alert you to the real agenda: Why, you ask, would a world war ever be needed? That’s simple: To deflect their own people’s attention away from what’s happening …

Ok, more pearls of expression.

For some wily performers, it was almost a point of honour to get away with insulting their opponents in the House without the use of ‘unparliamentary language’. So, when Disraeli was instructed to withdraw his allegation that ‘half the Cabinet were knaves’, he consented and replied that ‘half the Cabinet were not knaves’. Do read …

It’s easy to vote for Socialism. The impossible part is paying for it. Comment by moonmac on “Is America Heading For A Systems Collapse?” By Victor Davis Hanson, ZeroHedge, 1/21/22. Many interesting comments.

Yowza! We got us some disinformation here!

I grow weary over reading about asinine — but widespread — claims that this or that is DISINFORMATION. The essence of the charge is that certain statements are reprehensible, unacceptable, poisonous, vicious, deleterious, horrific, right-wing, and generally bad manners, so utterly irresistible and beguiling that any hearer must figuratively bind himself to the mast to …

Bold action is called for.

On Tuesday last week (4 January), the markets got spooked by the released minutes of a Federal Reserve Open Market Committee’s meeting held three weeks prior. What was the fuss all about? Well the minutes indicated that the Fed seems to be inclined to envision starting to prepare to begin planning to initiate raising interest …

The figure [150,000 female deaths from anorexia] has been quoted by everyone from Ann Landers to college textbooks, because as Carol Iannone remarks about the general atmosphere of women as victims, “It is almost as if feminism had finally discovered a problem that can unite all women across all barriers: the existence of men.” “The …
