Dems Continue To Spout Fact-Free Claims In Congress

One Democrat after another is claiming that weather, droughts, heatwaves, etc are getting worse due to climate change. None of them present a single shred of evidence to back up their fake claims.

And of course no Republicans challenge them on it.

Update: Rep. Pompeo from Kansas was spot on with his questions. He asked the EPA administrator to list the specific climate benefits of the rule, and she couldn’t list a single one.

    What is wrong with these Republicans? They have plenty of ammo to shoot down these lies. Maybe Mark Morano should testify.

    • Chuck says:

      W. DC. does things to people.

      • Generations of living in “Left Vs. Right” world does it. And they use polls the way climate scientists use their models–in a word, amorally.

          Maybe Harry didn’t hear or is late getting the memo, there is a ‘divide’ …

          Psychiatrist Confirms: Liberalism Is a Mental Disorder

          As a clinical and forensic psychiatrist, Lyle Rossiter has treated over 1,500 patients and examined over 2,700 civil and criminal cases. Turning his hand to political psychopathology, the author of The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness, has diagnosed an alarming percentage of the population as suffering from the grotesque form of mental derangement known by some as moonbattery.

          Among Rossiter’s observations:

          Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded. Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.

          A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity — as liberals do. A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population — as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and over-taxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state — as liberals do.

          The roots of liberalism — and its associated madness — can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind. When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.

          The book, the basis for the above post, for Harry:

          The Liberal Mind: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness
          – by Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr. , M.D.
          – – – – – – –
          Are Liberals Out of Their Minds? Why do modern liberals think and act as they do? The radical left’s politics and its destructive effects on our basic freedoms have provoked many to speculate on what makes these people tick. The Liberal Mind answers the question.

          This book is the first systematic analysis of the political madness that now threatens to destroy the West’s greatest achievement: the American dream of civilized liberty.

          In his penetrating analysis, Dr. Rossiter reveals modern liberalism’s assaults on: The freedom of adults to make good lives for themselves by cooperating with others, The ability of families to raise children to be self-reliant and mutual, and The morals, rights and laws that protect our freedoms.

    The EPA in its own studies that this will have absolutely no effect on global temperature.

    No climate in North America has changed.

  4. Clayton says:

    F.A. Hayek speaking with regard to the rise of Nazism in Germany, 1944:

    “The way in which, in the end, with few exceptions, her scholars and scientists put themselves readily at the service of the new rulers is one of the most depressing and shameful spectacles in the whole history of the rise of National Socialism. It is well known that particularly the scientists and engineers, who had so loudly claimed to be the leaders on the march to a new and better world, submitted more readily than almost any other class to the new tyranny.”

    Ahhh … the grand ‘hand wave’ as we used to call it ….

    Jadee Schmit would be proud.

    Pompeo grilling starts at about 2 hour mark

  7. Eric Simpson says:

    Btw, there’s a new National Journal article out that makes the bogus claim that “Republicans are changing” … to being warmists again: http://www.nationaljournal.com/politics/republicans-are-talking-differently-about-climate-change-20140618

    That article is flat out hogwash, and I wanted to leave a comment, but on my system I couldn’t find comments on the NJournal article. But my hotair comment:

    This is bs. The fact is that by 2008 close to the majority of Republicans had been duped by the leftists on climate change. It took the egregious abuses exposed in 2009 by the “Hide the Decline” Climategate emails to change things, as over a period of a year or so after that most conservatives did in fact switch to being skeptics. There were some laggards, or tough nuts, that remained with the leftists on climate change, like Chris Christie. Most of this talk about a supposed change the other way among conservatives is actually just highlightinig those laggards that never switched to being skeptics. So that’s the story. It’s baloney.

    And by the way, the most egregious “laggard,” or actually full throated advocate of the ruinous Obama climate change policies is Tennessee super rino Lamar Alexander who also voted for Rubio’s amnesty: http://www.nationaljournal.com/energy/lamar-alexander-unveils-his-maverick-gop-vision-for-energy-future-20130529

    Vote Lamar Alexander out on August 7th!
