all the ‘left’s’ failed predictions … seers becoming donkeys

Maybe not all, but tell me about anything the MSM got right in the last few years. At least 37 million results says Bing. Google has over 300,000,000 results, but I don’t normally believe Google due to their censoring of conservative sites and ideas!

Trump would never become the Republican’s candidate.

Trump can never beat Clinton.

The Arctic ice would all be melted.

Antarctic ice is melting faster than ever.

Australia’s dams will never fill in the new permanent drought.

Tony Abbott would never make prime Minister.

Turnbull will make a better PM than Abbott.

Fracking will be disastrous.

Carbon dioxide is pollution.

Windmills and solar can provide enough for baseload power.

Islam is a peaceful religion.

Boat people are refugees.

Palestinians want a two state solution.

Our grandkids will never know what snow is again.

The Statute of Liberty will be underwater before the end of the Century.

Half the world’s species will be extinct from global warming by the end of the Century.

Perth will be uninhabitable because of drought and global warming.

Obama will be a great President.

A red line in Syria will stop Assad.

Unions are peaceful and look after the workers.

Etc. etc. etc. As for 2016, was their ever a year for making donkeys out of seers. Surprisingly, a news company that excelled in getting things wrong.

Why would anyone ever believe the left again. For too long they have been preaching their agenda and attacking remorselessly anyone who did not go along. Just as well we now have an internet to see what Fake News agenda they come up with next.f95f7-6a0177444b0c2e970d01b7c895c1bd970b-pi

Thank goodness we now have sites like Drudge, instapundit, Breitbart News, Gateway Pundit, WUWT, Jonova and more. Update, donkeys, or maybe camel’s butts, found at Instapundit:

DNC-MSM WANTS TO APPROPRIATE ‘FAKE NEWS’ LABEL THAT CENTER-RIGHT HAS OWNED FOR OVER A DECADE.

When your team includes Brian Williams, Dan Rather, Al Sharpton, Eason Jordan, Jayson Blair, Katie Couric, the JournoList, and a whole squadron of Middle Eastern fauxtographers and the Pallywood propaganda assembly line, it takes a fair amount of chutzpah to accuse the other side of “fake news” – though think of the MSM as Democrat operatives with bylines, and it all makes sense.

 

 

About Tom Harley

Amateur ecologist and horticulturalist and CEO of Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Inc. (Tom Harley) Kimberley Environmental Horticulture Incorporated Kimberley Environmental Horticulture (KEH) is a small group of committed individuals who promote the use of indigenous plants for the landscaping of parks and gardens. Rehabilitation of Kimberley coast, bushland and pastoral regions are also high on our agenda. This includes planting seedlings, weed control, damage from erosion or any other environmental matter that comes to our attention. We come from all walks of life, from Professionals and Trades oriented occupations, Pensioners and Students, Public Servants and the Unemployed. We have a community plant nursery where we trial many old and new species, with a view to incorporating these into our landscaping trials. Our labour force are mainly volunteers, but with considerable help from the 'work for the dole' program, Indigenous Community Development Employment Program (CDEP) groups and the Ministry of Justice, with their community work orders; in this way we manage to train many people in the horticultural skills needed for indigenous plant growing. We constantly undertake field trips that cover seed and plant collection in the Kimberley. Networking around the Kimberley region and the east Pilbara is a necessary part of promoting our activities. We consult on a range of Environmental and Landscaping matters that deal with our region. Our activities involve improving Broome's residential streetscapes by including 'waterwise' priciples in planting out nature strips. Sustainable environmental horticulture is practised by members of our group. We use existing vegetation as the backbone of any plantings, using these species to advantage when planning to develop tree forms or orchards. The Broome region is sensitive to development. Subsequently many weed species have become dominant in and around developed areas. The use and movement of heavy machinery is the biggest single cause of environmental degradation. We dont live in a 'Tropical Paradise' but on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert. The plants that survive best here, grow in well-drained pindan sand, and are found from the Dampier Peninsular southward to where average rainfall is below 600mm. When we use rainforest species, detail is important when planting, water catchment, sunlight and understorey species are all considered. The use of recycled 'grey' water is an advantage here as well as treated waste-water, although many local species do not fare well with nutrients from this source. We use waterwise planting methods which include harvesting asmuch rainwater as possible, with swales designed to hold up to 200 litres, to help recharge the local groundwater aquifer. There has been a serious decline in this aquifer over the last few years. With the fast expansion of the Broome peninsular, more and more land is being covered by concrete, iron and bitumen so that much less water is available to replenish the aquifer, allowing the salt content to become significantly higher. The small Broome Peninsular is on the south-western corner of the Dampier Peninsular (bound by Broome, Derby and Cape Leveque at the northern tip). Compaction by vehicles also inhibits water retention due to the content of our local pindan sand, hard as concrete in the dry, going to soft and sloppy mud after rain. None of us are botanists, inevitably we have got some names wrong, names changed, or have not gone to sub-species level.
