Comment Of The Day

Ronald Reagan said :

The problem with liberals isn’t so much that they are ignorant, it is that they know so many things that aren’t so.

Like this guy, who is making up statistics about things he knows nothing about.

During the winter of 1977, it was snowing in Florida and warm and raining in Alaska.

It was raining in Anchorage in December, 2002 – which happens about once every ten years according to the National Weather Service.

Progressives simply make up nonsensical pieces of information, and then declare themselves to be superior based on their dishonesty and ignorance.

When called out for his lying, look how he responded. No apology or regret, he simply shifts to a different mindless attack. These are the people who are currently running this country.

    What are Progressives?

    • Gail Combs says:

      Neo-Luddites whose leaders want us to return to a feudal system with them as lords.

      Progressives in their own words:
      “It is a campaign not for abundance but for austerity. It is a campaign not for more freedom but for less. Strangest of all, it is a campaign not just against other people, but against ourselves.” -George Monbiot, UK Ecojournalist

      “Global Sustainability requires the deliberate quest of poverty, reduced resource consumption and set levels of mortality control.” – Professor Maurice King

      “A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” – Ted Turner, founder of CNN and major UN donor

    • catweazle666 says:

      “Progressives” are the sort of people who will argue black is white to oppose the execution of serial sadistic child rapist/murderers due to it might infringe their Yuman Rites, but wholeheartedly support a woman’s right to murder an infant not for any valid medical reason, but purely because she couldn’t be bothered to keep their legs crossed.

    • Brian H says:

      Google Fabians. Their coat of arms is serious. They really mean to smash and re-assemble. The “progression” of which they speak is the advancement to a new species of mankind, themselves, after disposal of their predecessors, us. Eugenics was/is one of their core principles.

    • gator69 says:

      Progressives are dyed in the wool (sheep) leftists. Do not confuse them with liberals, who founded our country.

  3. Andy says:

    I leant something, never heard of that syndrome before. On google I liked the sentence “a man who robbed two banks after covering his face with lemon juice in the mistaken belief that it would prevent his face from being recorded on surveillance cameras”

    Steve, you definitely do not suffer from that. Just a slight obsession and biased viewpoint, hence all the time you spend on this subject. 🙂


  4. SMS says:

    Mr. LeftisRight sounds like someone with a degree in Art History, or maybe English. He argues using fierce sounding words, but no science. His belief system is grounded in the beliefs of others; nothing he was capable of determining on his own.

    • geran says:

      Yes, he is apparently just learning the troll business, probably a trainee. He has the vitriol and the mis-information working for him, but to be really funny, he needs to try to sound like a knowledge scientist, tossing around words like “thermodynamics”, “Rossby waves”, and “infrared”. A typical example “My cat ate so much thermodynamics that the Rossby waves caused my infrared to turn blue.” (From the Troll 101 textbook.)

      • Morgan says:

        He tossed around Dunning-Kruger syndrome, which is found in one of the early chapters in the Troll 101 textbook. He should drop “do you still have your timecard from Heartland Institute” from his material though. Not clever. Nobody even takes their timecards home with them so it’s just stupid.

      • Justa Joe says:

        When grading the troll’s harangue would you tend to give him a better or worse grade based on his omission of the Koch Bros?

        • Morgan says:

          That was a relief, as well as omitting Fox News and ExxonMobil, but I really miss the overuse of the term peer-reviewed

      • Shazaam says:

        Long, long ago on a long-gone site, I was awarded the pink belt in Trolljitsu by a site admin…

        Trolljitsu was some wag’s scale of one’s skill in raising the hackles of the site’s trolls and keeping them frothing at the mouth, whilst demonstrating your calm, cool demeanor….

        Fun times there…..

  5. Sundance says:

    It is amazing how so many people are like religious fanatics. They willfully dismiss evidence, data and facts that are inconvenient to their beliefs and are willing to base their beliefs on some obscure piece of anecdotal information that they heard but never fact checked.

    I was schooled by professors who tried to trick students as a teaching method so that students learned that you can’t just assume that people in positions of authority are accurate or honest. I have no idea what schools teach today but I am amazed how many people on the internet present themselves as mindless fanatics programmed with an emotionally charged belief system unsupported by facts.

  6. Gamecock says:

    DNFTT. It just makes them happy, and encourages them to troll some more.

  7. Sundance says:

    I have also noticed a pattern where these fanatical types fall into the psychological traps of projection and transference of their own shortcomings onto those who disagree with them. When they are shown to be wrong on the facts they respond emotionally by claiming that everyone else is stupid. They must have never taken courses in logic or psychology, but they are a great source of humor.

    • Jason Calley says:

      “When they are shown to be wrong on the facts they respond emotionally by claiming that everyone else is stupid. ”

      Very true — and it still surprises me. Consider this case as an example: OK, LeftisRight is obviously not stupid. Ignorant and misguided, lacking information, sure — but not stupid. His sentence structure and grammar seem to be that of a person with some intelligence and education. And yet, when he is shown exactly and specifically where he has made a clearly incorrect statement, his response is like that of a spoiled third grader. “Nyah, nyah, nyah! Heartland! Google University!” What, does he think that sceptics go back and alter decades old newspaper articles? Does he think that Steven has a time machine?! I guess he must… But any rational thinker, anyone who actually has a desire to know the truth would, at an absolute minimum, have responded “Ouch! Sorry, I was wrong. Thanks for the more accurate information.”

      If LeftisRight were stupid, well, it would be easier to forgive his mistakes and bad manners. But he is not. He is just too lazy to do the hard work of being rational. Sad to say, he is wasting a potentially good human mind.

      • Gail Combs says:

        No he has an agenda and according to Alinsky’s rules for radicals you never let the facts make you deviate from the agenda. What he does not realize is that he is a puppet for the Queens and Bankers who trained him and set the agenda.

        The Warmists, thanks to Progressive Education, actually do live in an alternate universe at least when it comes to their method of reasoning.

        The Philosophy Of Karl Marx
        The philosophical bases of Marx’s thought were laid early and remained unchanged throughout his life. As a student, Marx accepted the philosophy of Hegel as the only sound and adequate explanation of the universe. According to this philosophy, “the only immutable thing is the abstraction of movement.” The one universal phenomenon is change, and the only universal form of this phenomenon is its complete abstraction. Thus, Hegel accepted as real only that which existed in the mind. Objective phenomena and events were of no consequence; only the conceptions of them possessed by human minds were real. Ideas, not objects, were the stuff of which the universe was made.

        In the Hegelian philosophy no idea could exist without an opposite…. Struggle or conflict was the en-evitable fact in such a universe—conflict of the thesis with its antithesis. In this struggle thesis and antithesis acted and reacted on each other, and a new phenomenon—synthesis—was created. All action or change occurring in the universe was, under the Hegelian philosophy, the product of thesis, antithesis, and resulting synthesis—all in the realm of ideas, since objective reality could exist only in that sphere. Since this process was universal and never ending, it offered a complete explanation of the causal processes creating all phenomena within the universe….

        This is why there is so much emphasis placed on ‘Consensus’ – In other words if I wish real hard and click my heels three time it is TRUE! (And since I control the scientific data bases I can change the data to meet my fantasy.)

        Of course this philosophy is only for the rank and file. The elite ‘Socialists’, the bankers, corporate CEOs and politicians, use the philosophy to control the minds of the rank and file just as the old feudal kings used the church to control the serfs and Aristocracy.

        Since the American revolutionists up-set that applecart and forbid a state religion ‘Socialism/Communism’ was resurrected. (See The Great Thanksgiving Hoax for the death of the idea of socialism as a legitimate method of governance and economics. It flunked the reality test big time.)

        The Divine Right of Kings

        “…the figure of God’s majesty, His captain, steward, deputy-elect, Anointed, crowned,…”
        (Richard II, 4.1)

        Execution by burning, by decapitation, or by hanging, drawing and quartering were used to provide a public spectacle of the consequences of disobedience. [Now we are called Den!ers and there are calls for trials for Crimes Against Humanity – a bit more civilized at least for now.]

        The main way of instilling obedience, however, was propaganda. Through teaching, preaching and writing, the message was sent that sedition was morally wrong, un-Christian, and would result in divine retribution. Even those who escaped punishment in this life would burn in hell fire.

        The theory of the Divine Right of Kings aimed at instilling obedience by explaining why all social ranks were religiously and morally obliged to obey their government….

        The theory of the Divine Right of Kings was directed at convincing this literate and wealthy group that they should serve as royal officials, not try and seize power for themselves….

        Although the theory of the Divine Right of Kings was perfectly coherent and treated as such by its exponents and opponents, it is often now dismissed as absurd. It is often falsely portrayed as more or less implying that God descended on a cloud to endow monarchs with celestial authority. In fact, in a period when most people accepted that God had created the world and human nature, its analysis of the nature of political obligation was perfectly sensible (and arguably less mystical than dialectical materialism or the existential moment)….

        ‘Environmentalism’ has become the new religion. This is why there are attacks on Christians because the old religion has got to be discredited to make way for the new. Maurice Strong (senior Advisor World Bank and Rockefeller Foundation Trustee) is building that new religion. The Aspen Institute was founded in 1949, by Fabians, Aldous Huxley, and John Maynard Hutchins and has been working to establish the ‘New Religion’ ever since. (see (wwwDOT) )

        This new religion of Environmentalism is what is supposed to give ‘Legitimacy’ to the new ‘Planatary Regime’ as John Holdern called it. You can see it in Pascal Lamy’s writing where he talks of “The reality is that, so far, we have largely failed to articulate a clear and compelling vision of why a new global order matters — and where the world should be headed.” and “the specific challenge of legitimacy in global governance”

        ….this is precisely what German Chancellor Angela Merkel has proposed with the creation of a Charter for Sustainable Economic Activity. It is a commendable effort to provide a “new global economic contract,” to anchor economic globalization on a bedrock of ethical principles and values which would renew the trust that citizens need to have that globalization can indeed work for them….

        They really are working very very hard to get us to give up our National Sovereignty and put a faceless bureaucracy in charge instead aren’t they?

        You can also see the concept throughout Ged Davis’s IPCC-SRES Zero Order Draft on storylines and scenarios.

        As I said before Ged Davis was a VP of Shell Oil. Another member of the IPCC scenario team Doug McKay was also a Shell oil ex and a Senior Financial Analyst with the World Bank.

        Gobs of Shell Oil stock is held by The Rothschild Investment Trust – (Rockefellers and Rothschilds) the Dutch Royal family and the Queen of England.

        Prince Bernhard of the Dutch Royal Family is the Founding President of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and HRH The Duke of Edinburgh served as International President of WWF for 16 years.

        John H. Loudon, headed Royal Dutch Shell from 1951 to 1965 and he was then President of WWF from 1976 to 1981.

        Gets positivelly incestuous doesn’t it?

        The Rockefellers (Chase Bank) has close ties t the World Bank. Three presidents, John J. McCloy, Eugene Black and George Woods all worked at Chase before before moving to the World Bank. A fourth president, James D. Wolfensohn, served as a director of the Rockefeller Foundation. Robert Watson a World Bank Employee was IPCC chair.

        …Rockefeller has also for many years hosted annual luncheons at the family’s Westchester County Pocantico estate for the world’s finance ministers and central bank governors, following the annual Washington meetings of the World Bank and IMF. These luncheons were held at the Playhouse….

        A bit of history on the International Bankers

        • Jason Calley says:

          Hey Gail, you say “The main way of instilling obedience, however, was propaganda.”

          Very true — but in the last century or so we are seeing another very powerful tool being brought into play for controlling the human race. Have you ever considered the difference between a wolf and a domesticated dog? A dog is very much a wolf that never psychologically outgrows puppyhood. A dog’s owner is both master and parent. The creation of modern school systems is an attempt to domesticate humans by training them to be subservient and to never take the full self-responsibility of adulthood and freedom. Stand when teacher says, walk when teacher says, the truth is what teacher tells you, let teacher make any important decisions. For the brighter student, send him to university for 4 or 6 years more programming in obeying what the system commands. Once this pattern is deeply ingrained it is safe to turn people loose into a society where Big Brother is now their Big Daddy and Big Momma as well. I know a man who is a 70 year old child (and yes, he is a text book “Progressive”.)

        • Gail Combs says:

          Jason Calley says….
          Oh, I hear you. That is what progressive education is all about and now Common Core education. (If you do not home school your kid ‘Right’ you don’t get to be his parent.)

          One of the interesting tie-ins is Feminism. (It ties back to Rockefeller.) SEE: The Hand that Rocked the Cradle: A Critical Analysis of Rockefeller Philanthropic Funding, 1920-1960 library(DOT)

          Feminism had several things going for it.
          1. It weakened the family structure. Mom wasn’t home to take care of her kids or the elderly. She didn’t have time to keep up with the relatives visit neighbors and everything else that goes into building a self sustaining community.

          2. The state through daycare took over early childhood training. To make sure of this the Socialists staged the Daycare Child Abuse Scam and scared parents into accepting the regulation of daycare.
          SEE: The Fells Acres Nightmare and The “Little Rascals” ritual abuse case in Edenton, NC

          You can read the PBS spin on the cases here: (wwwDOT)

          3. With a two person income family the state (and Bankers) could extract more wealth. You pay taxes on a salad from McFoo Burgers you pay nothing for a salad made from your garden.
          Another interesting tie-in is discipline. “Spare the Rod and Spoil the Child” gave way to bribe the child and if you dare to touch him you go to jail. Added to that was the wrap the child in cotton batting philosophy – make the enviorment ‘Child safe’ by rule of law. All this combined to teach children there was no cause and effect link.

          Of course this means you have unruly children in schools. No problem DRUG THEM.

          I do not think it is any coincidence that the children drugged are mainly white males.

          …nearly twice as many students had been diagnosed with ADHD compared with the number medicated in school. Among elementary students, 17% of all students and 33% of white boys had been diagnosed with ADHD and the vast majority had been medicated for this condition at some time during the 1997-98 school year. At the time of the survey, which spanned the summer months (when drug therapy is sometimes temporarily discontinued), 12% of all elementary students were medicated for ADHD (LeFever et al., 2002). Ninety percent of all identified cases had been medicated for the disorder at some point and the majority had been treated for over two years. These findings suggest that as of 1998, school-based studies of ADHD prevalence captured approximately half of the cases treated in the community….

          Or that Ritilin causes brain damage: Ritalin: Brain-Damage Evidence For Amphetamines

          And since the Fabians are also very pro-eugenics you can add in DNA testing.

          DNA test for every baby: Every newborn baby could undergo DNA testing and have their genetic code stored in a nationwide data bank.
          This is one of a series of measures {2}being considered by ministers, who said yesterday that genetic technology could bring about a huge change in healthcare.

          They gave the green light to a massive increase in genetic tests on the NHS and gene therapy experiments…. (wwwDOT)

          USA: Newborn DNA Banking “Today it is increasingly common for states to hold onto these samples for years, even permanently. Some states also use the samples for unrelated purposes, such as in scientific research, and give access to the samples to others.” (wwwDOT)

          Of course if you want to match character to DNA you have to have further information about the person. So the Government is going after it.

          Cuomo’s DNA Databank: Adultery, Being Loud In Church, and Fortune Telling Now Crimes That Give the State the Right To Your DNA
          If you’re a fortune teller, cheat on your spouse, or are loud in church, in New York State, the government will soon legally have the right to retrieve your DNA and put it in a DNA Databank — that’s thanks to an agreement Governor Andrew Cuomo reached with legislative leaders earlier this week on the governor’s “All Crimes DNA Bill.”

          Previously, the state could only swipe the DNA of people convicted of violent felonies. The law was later changed to include all felonies. And now big brother’s gone a step further — anyone convicted of a “penal code misdemeanor” must now hand their DNA over to the government….

          we went through all of New York’s penal code misdemeanors, and many of them we didn’t even know were crimes — for example, if you “harass” a seeing-eye dog, or if you’re convicted of “jostling,” you will soon have to give your DNA to the government.

          Below is a list of some of the more-ridiculous crimes — some of which we didn’t even know were illegal — as defined by New York’s Penal Code, that will get your DNA in the state’s databank.

          (Note: we realize many of these misdemeanors have specific intents, and aren’t completely worthless. However, they’re vague, and offer a lot of prosecutorial discretion, which means a malicious prosecutor could potentially roll the dice and apply them in places they were never intended to be applied. Then: ta-da! — the government gets your DNA)….

          The excuse for this invasion of privacy, there always is one, is to link people to unsolved crimes.

          Beginning to feel a bit like Monsanto’s GMO pigs?

      • Justa Joe says:

        Leftist will almost NEVER concede to any countervailing fact in an argument. Leftist don’t care about winning an argument on the merits. Leftist only want to win by any mean necessary so that they can have their way.

  8. Andy DC says:

    If a record low number of people who smoked were getting lung cancer, that theory would also be flawed. But that is not the case. An apples vs. oranges comparison.

    • Gail Combs says:

      I have not gone back and actually looked at the smoking studies, but you have to be really careful because studies can be designed to intentionally LIE. This “study” on the Tea Party is a classic example of how to lie with statistics. It shows where all the lies printed in the MSM came from BTW: 2010 – Blair-Rockefeller poll – University of Arkansas

      The questions that determined the Tea Party were ‘Racists’ all start with “Do you think it is the responsibility of the federal government to make sure that minorities”

      These questions were carefully designed so answers are determined by the phrase “Federal Government” and not “minorities” and then the report states, not that the TEA Party wants a small federal government but that they are “Racist”

      The headline for the article is even: Tea Party Distinguished by Racial Views and Fear of the Future – Findings from the Blair-Rockefeller poll

      (And yes I specifically went hunting for this poll to see where the data came from that was reported in the MSM.)

      I also look at some studies on “low Carb Diets’ that found no benefit. I found this strange because my health has really improved on a low carb diet. I try to stay under 30 grams of carbs a day. This includes starches as well as sugars. – (no bread, pasta, potatoes, corn, rice, beans, grain…)

      One study I looked at defined “Low carb’ = 300 grams a day – WTF!
      I can not find that study but here is another:

      omparison of a reduced carbohydrate and reduced fat diet for LDL, HDL, and VLDL subclasses during 9-months of weight maintenance subsequent to weight loss.
      …participants followed a dietary plan for nine months that targeted a reduced percentage of carbohydrate (approximately 20%) or fat (approximately 30%) intake and an energy intake level calculated to maintain weight loss….

      and another:

      Comparison of a low carbohydrate and low fat diet for weight maintenance in overweight or obese adults enrolled in a clinical weight management program.
      ….METHODS: Fifty-five (29 low carbohydrate diet; 26 low fat diet) overweight/obese middle-aged adults completed a 9 month weight management program that included instruction for behavior, physical activity (PA), and nutrition. For 3 months all participants consumed an identical liquid diet (2177 kJ/day) followed by 1 month of re-feeding with solid foods either low in carbohydrate or low in fat. For the remaining 5 months, participants were prescribed a meal plan low in dietary carbohydrate (~20%) or fat (~30%). BW and carbohydrate or fat grams were collected at each group meeting. Energy and macronutrient intake were assessed at baseline, 3, 6, and 9 months…..

      20% of the diet as carbs is reduced??? I would go into insulin shock if I ate that much sugar/starch!

      Unfortunately what these studies show is the entire Academic/Scientific establishment in the USA is riddled with rot and not just Climatology.

  9. Jeff says:

    Problem most liberals have is exactly what Regain said.
    The facts are the facts.
    But that has never stopped the uninformed who believe they are informed.
    Even if they are, , they ignore fact and listen only to what they and others FEEL.
    The falsehood of the preached climate change is a right as saying that 2 plus 2 equals 5…just because you feel it should.

  10. henrythethird says:

    To quote another President (Lincoln): “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”

    I actually believe that Mr “Leftis Right” was a part of the D-K study.

    “…Dunning and Kruger proposed that, for a given skill, incompetent people will:
    1. tend to overestimate their own level of skill;
    2. fail to recognize genuine skill in others;
    3. fail to recognize the extremity of their inadequacy;
    4. recognize and acknowledge their own previous lack of skill, if they are exposed to training for that skill…”

    • Jason Calley says:

      Who here has not attempted conversation with the CAGW enthusiast who did not know the difference between Fahrenheit or Celsius, floating sea ice or glacier — the sort of enthusiast who, no matter what facts or data you give him, responds, “yes, but 98% of all scientists say climate change is REAL!”
