A State Of Dark Ages Degeneracy

The Democratic Party and the press corpse (I repeat myself) have degenerated to a point where they refuse to report on or even listen to any points of view which don’t conform to unsupportable, mindless nonsense being spewed by the White House. Even if those viewpoints are being discussed in Congressional hearings on Capitol Hill.

How exactly is this different from the days of Galileo? It is unbelievable how deluded and perverse the Democratic Party has become.

    I agree, Steven, and I am convinced that the capture of Japan’s atomic bomb facility by Stalin’s USSR troops in August 1945 gave communism the ability to survive and thrive after the United Nations was established on 24 October 1945.

    Important events of August-October 1945 that shaped the post-WWII society were hidden from the public.

    • Harry Hopkins, FDR’s right hand man and head of Lend Lease, gave the Soviets everything they needed for the most part. Communists heavily infiltrated the state dept. if
      Stalin’s Secret Agents: The Subversion of Roosevelt’s Government by M. Stanton Evans and Herbert Romerstein, is to be believed.

        Thanks, Patrick. Thanks to Climategate, the physical and social sciences are coming to a common conclusion: Stalin emerged victorious from the ruins of WWII !

    Joel Kotkin had an interesting description of the Democratic party in an article he wrote recently.http://joelkotkin.com/content/00914-three-headed-democratic-party It is clear that the gentry liberals supply the funds, the populist progressives supply the talking points and campaign themes but the old social democrats are squeezed out. Kotkin says the Democrats need all three to win nationally but it’s pretty clear that the party is intent on replacing the traditional working class Democratic base with new immigrants. So imagine that, an hourly wage worker may soon come to find that not only his job has been outsourced to cheap foreign labor, his vote has been outsourced to newly arrived foreigners as well.

      You might find this analysis from The Clinton (Blair)-Rockefeller Pollsters interesting.
      (University of Arkansas, Diane D. Blair Center of Southern Politics & Society, Clinton School of Public Service and Winthrop Rockefeller Institute)

      Shifting Support for Democratic Party among American Elderly
      Findings from the Blair-Rockefeller Poll

      On the heels of the 2010 mid-term elections, the Diane D. Blair Center of Southern Politics and Society, together with Winthrop Rockefeller Institute, conducted a comprehensive online national poll of political attitudes and behaviors…. [TRANSLATION: The Tea Party’s wins in that election scared the elite.]

      Older respondents were clearly more Republican and more conservative than their younger cohorts… only 12 percent of respondents over 65 indicated that they did not vote in the 2010 midterm elections, compared to 42 percent of non-voters among those under 65 years old. Among the older participants 49 percent indicated that they voted for a Republican congressional candidate while only 26 percent of those under 65 voted for a Republican congressional candidate – a 23 point gap in favor of the Republican Party among a group that is highly involved in contemporary political life. [Another panties twister for the Democrats]

      This general tendency for those 65 and older to support Republicans in the 2010 midterm election was not isolated to evaluations of congressional candidates. Looking specifically at how respondents evaluated President Obama, we again see the substantial obstacles that the Democratic Party, and President Obama, in particular, face among those Americans 65 years and older. [Older is wiser. We can smell the B.S. a mile away and the stench from D.C. is getting worse.]

      One of the unique features of the Blair-Rockefeller Poll is the large sample size – including oversamples of people living in the South (defined as living in one of the eleven states of the Confederacy), Latinos/Hispanics and African Americans. Such a large oversample provides one of the only opportunities to rigorously compare elderly populations across race and region….

      Overall, the results of this survey indicate that the traditional base of support among older voters that Democrats have relied upon since the partisan realignment following the New Deal continues to weaken. While older voters continue to vote in high percentages, compared to younger cohorts, clear support for the Democratic Party is confined largely to African Americans.….

      Makes you wonder just how Obummer managed to win re-election, although McCain and then Romney weren’t not exactly ‘Rock stars” The Republicans really had to work at losing the elections.

    “”Ms. Streisand’s funding of our work in Japan this December is the latest in a series of gifts she has made to the Environmental Defense Fund,” said EDF chief scientist and atmospheric physicist, Dr. Michael Oppenheimer. “Ms. Streisand’s support of EDF work is a model of how a foundation can help further public policy in crucial fields.”

    Every rich leftist has their own personal pan climate alarmist on the payroll. Leftist want their personal desires for society codified in “science” and then the law.

    This isn’t as bad as it was for Copernicus / Galileo. For them, they were up against 2000 years of tweaked calculations and adjusted celestial charts made up by the Ptolemaic camp, which, although wrong, actually worked well enough to predict eclipses, etc. And Galileo’s heliocentric model, although correct, was not exact because he assumed circular orbits. It actually took until Tycho Brahe and Kepler and the elliptical orbit before the heliocentric calculations were as exact as geocentric ones.

    • _Jim says:

      And the earth’s actually an oblate spheroid … Isaac Newton, Principia, 1687 …

      • The shape is actually contracted slightly toward the North Pole because of imbalanced tidal forces of the Sun and Moon, giving the Earth a slight pear shape.

        In any case it is the DNC doing this. They will not support any candidate who is not a drone for the “progressive” platform and they tolerate no dissent.

  6. philjourdan says:

    Galileo? You do not have to go back that far. How different is it from the days of segregation? Democrats have a lot of experience in that area.

    This blog, Steve, has been counterproductive as it has become a laughing stock due to the flies to shit effect of your banning only us critics (my original account remains banned) while daily harboring multiple outspoken and widely recognized crackpots who highly organized Gorebot activists are using to negatively and very effectively stereotype skeptics in general.

    (A) Registered child rapist Iron Man is now adding historical revisionism of a Japanese atomic bomb, akin to real Holocaust revisionism.

    (B) Super historical revisionist Harry who self-publishes ancient gods insanity based on matching random fractal coastlines with random visible star constellations is now linking to fact free anti-Darwin rants such as:

    “The future will look back on this and the last 155 years (since Darwin’s “Origin of Species”) with shame (and it will be abject shame, indeed, before it is through, if we are led to World War for a third time, or if the U.S.A. becomes just another state overly coercive of its citizens, because as I, and so many others, have warned over and over, we, and especially the “leaders”, have not learned from our past mistakes–we, taken altogether, are not “evolving”, which in reality only means ever more learning, without forgetting–without degenerating).”

    When not one but *two* of your most regular commenters are yammering on about World War Three, you have yourself become a clown, Steve.

    (C) When I alerted you to a blatant error in your adjustments hockey stick, both your own supporters and yourself included deceived yourselves into making public exclamations that I was myself crazy.

    (D) By over politicizing climate (model) skepticism, you help lock out the remaining few demographics who skeptics can still hope to convince to join us, those being highly liberal scientists and highly liberal urban geeks in the rebellious tech sector. Antagonizing liberals who are actually reasonable voting people rather than sociopaths, is a loser’s game that ruins it for the rest of us skeptics.

    (E) If you run an online funny farm, purposefully, you deserve no respect from civil society, which is why you are already one of the most marginalized serious skeptics, disincluded from even the WUWT blogroll and the new collaborative book by mainstream skeptics.

    • There are those who want facts, and those who want to engage in an endless circle jerk.

      There are those who can’t understand that there are different ways of looking at data, and believe that their limited view of the world is the only correct one. That is why progress comes so slowly.

      I suggest you take up a serious discussion of CO2 sensitivity at some other blog. Your seemingly endless hysterics and paranoia are really annoying.

      No matter how many times you say it, you are not being censored – but I am completely sick of your endless bullshit.

    It isn’t as hostile here as elsewhere. Many, many people running online sites including most major media have stopped ANY debates on ANYTHING at this point and yes, you even allow me to rattle on here, too, and I am half-liberal myself.

    Thank you for this. Antiwar.com, for example, only lets a tiny fraction of people comment there after Justin banned anyone disputing his take on history including me! Silly.

    But you don’t, so far, so please don’t in the future even if people are irritable. On the other hand, forging alliances means not mocking people who have slightly different views about various issues beloved by right or left wingers.

    • Gail Combs says:

      +1

      I hate censorship for anything but excessively foul language.

      Some of the Professional News blogs have some of the most inane nonsense posted, akin to playground taunting complete with nasty language but do not “allow” Skeptics to posts. (WTF???) So thanks for preserving freedom.

      NOTE:
      I have noticed that Word-unimPressed has been “Burping” lately and some of my comments have “disappeared” here, at Tallblokes and at WUWT.

    Jesse Ventura has always been a fake, phony and a fraud. Look at his term as Governor of Minnesota. Recall too that he said he was taken down into the basement of the Governor’s house and read the riot act or some such conspiracy nonsense.

  12. Ron Van Wegen says:

    Your use of the Galileo myth every twentieth post does you no credit. It’s a dog whistle and based on ignorance. It detracts from the value of your other writing.

  13. You said “days of Galileo”… Well, I know what you meant. But the fact is that the common perception of the case of Galileo is a huge misunderstanding. This video tries to demistify it. Conservatives should never unquestioningly trust in slanderous propaganda against the Church of Rome, particularly when the subject is the history of the medieval era and the passage to the “modern” era, even if you are a protestant christian, because every christian must search for truth without bias.
    Warmists tried to rewrite the history of the medieval global climate by erasing the Medieval Warm Period, and anti-catholics in general tried (and almost succeeded) to rewrite the history of medieval Europe by inverting almost everything about it, calling it the “Dark Ages” and other nonsenses…
    Please, ignore the portuguese subtitles of the video. And BTW, I really appreciate your blog, especially your sarcastic sense of humor. =P

    Theories about fake conspiracies provide the best cover for real ones.
