activism rejects science …

Greenpeace Activism, the last refuge of scoundrels. Here is the latest waffle and a petition, along with the gullible congregation that pray at the Green altar of hypocrisy, commenting on social media.

dreaming the next field trip …

.Time to think about some hot desert country field trips. So I looked up some Great Sandy Desert images to remind me. Click to enlarge.

Just need to watch for tropical thunderstorms which have begun in Pastoral country adjoining the desert.

cat among pigeons …

Dr Alan Carlin from Icecap posted this interesting bit of news. Check. Not quite checkmate, but I do want to be a fly on their walls on opening their mail. It’s quite a piece, in climate science legalese. The cat, “Mr. Menton has a JD from Harvard Law School and a BA in Mathematics and Economics from Yale.” and you will have to read it to see who the pigeons are. Continue reading

“an overload of green-left waffle and censorship if they dare to disagree” …

The Quadrants’ description of the latest waffle seen at The Conversation, a one sided, partisan receptacle for the Green Blob media operatives thrown out from ‘their’ ABC and Fairfax journals.

Andrew Jaspan, 64, co-founder and executive director of   The Conversation, was sent on forced leave last month, according to the Guardian, but not because of his site’s bizarre news treatments: […]

Two other factors were involved:

  • Letters of complaint to the board from some of Jaspan’s Australian and overseas editors about Jaspan’his style and strategy – a reprise of the Age staff revolt against Jaspan in early 2008
  • Top-level concern about Jaspan’s hell-for-leather expansion overseas, despite The Conversation’s shoe-string finances and dependence on taxpayers’ largesse.

As Jaspan put it with aplomb in his 2014 annual review, “Each year takes us by surprise. There’s no road map, and we are making our future as we go along.”

Haven’t believed a thing they’ve ever written, on the occasions I have unwittingly seen it. Fiction, and poor fiction is their forte. This is copying from the Bobama Democrat playbook on Alinsky.

Lots more at Quadrant.

enabling the corrupt …

This video explains how Google cheats the system to back the crooks in power:

How Google manipulates search answers in favour of Clinton.

The video is available from a comment on this post:

Dems killing Democracy? — Massive Voter Fraud for “50 years” and paid activists at Trump rallies.

The tentacles have even reached Michael Smith News after he posted on the corruption of the Clinton Foundation. Not for the first time, either. A few years ago, it was the Gillard corruption reports that caused Google to hide Smith’s site from view.

Corruption enablers, is what they are. It’s not just Google, as Twitter and Facebook are both Democrat operatives and enablers. Wikileaks, Project Veritas and other undercover reporting has shown them up for what they are, Clinton cronies.

The Third World Country That Barry And Hillary Made

Where the media is the Clinton ‘attack dog’ arm: OPERATIVES WITH BYLINES: Journalist emails Jennifer Palmieri to give her a “heads up” on coming sex scandal story. “I need to give you a heads up on something Menendez-related that will affect your new boss so you have time to put together a plan for it. . . . Won’t be breaking news until next week, but likely to be big enough that you’ll want to plan for it in advance. And good luck with today.”

Glenn Reynolds points out this: […] this guy. He publishes in high-level places sometimes, but he’s a PR guy, really, not a journalist, though the difference grows ever more elusive.

Keeping a low, low profile of course: Newt Gingrich on Veritas Videos: ‘Where’s the FBI?’

Apple are there too. Glenn Reynolds, again:

21ST CENTURY ROBBER-BARON CRONYISM: Memo: Google’s Eric Schmidt Working Directly With the Clinton Campaign; ‘Discreet conversations’ also started with Facebook, Apple in 2014.

We can only hope President Trump will be onto them about their “Robber-Baron cronyism”.  Also, from Ed Driscoll at Instapundit:

—Headline, the London Daily Mail, yesterday.

ICYMI: Activist Who Took Credit For Violent Chicago Protests Was On Hillary’s Payroll.

—Headline, the Daily Caller, yesterday.

According to the DNC-MSM, fascism is forever descending upon the American right, but it always seems to land rather far left of the target, to paraphrase Tom Wolfe.

I can go on and on, the corruption is so widespread on behalf of a corrupt Hillary Clinton, but I have things to do. At least the Blogworld is awake and posting!

Update, The Google Search Party!

CNN have proven the emails are NOT fakes, by suggesting it’s illegal to read them! Heh, lots more at the links:
