A very good analysis of the well paid priests and the dogma of this latest religion.
The below post is an amusing summary of the serious nature of this case with regard to free speech in America
And here is Steyne’s take. Prof Judith Curry has entered the fray.
I love Rudy. I also love all those supporters (Christie, etc) who stood up for Pres Trump almost from the beginning in the face of ridicule and hostility.
Having said that, I admire Trump for trying to pick the best person for each important job whether that person is/was a personal friend or not. People who are getting angst about the supporters not getting jobs are actually insulting the supporters including Rudy. What they (and Dobbs) are actually saying is that the supporters were only supporters because they wanted a job. This is very insulting.
Trump has made his fortune because he picks the right person for the right job. Down at his core, Trump in an absolutely ruthless person who all his life has run with, and beaten, the big sharks. He has his vision of what he wants to do, and he is going to pick the sharpest knife in the drawer to do it. Period.
People can squeal all they want to, but I believe Trump is going to do everything he said. I believe Trump. Do you? To do that, he needs the big sharks in the tank with him facing the big sharks of Islam, Communism (“Socialists, Left” both in the US and abroad), the UN, China, and the Globalists.
Trump knows we are in WW3, He knows the US is facing ruin unless it gets its financial act together, and he is acting like it in his selections.
I used to be a great fan of Andrew Bolt and enjoyed reading and commenting on his blog. It was mainly a friendly, interesting comment section, with droll banter between commenters, spirited debate at times, but usually fun and informative.
Now, Andrew seems to put the minimum into it. His comments are the same old same old, but done shorter and definitely not bigly. We used to be able to read his longer pieces but no longer, as the dreaded “paywall” has come down.
His commentary has lost its zing. He is just paddling enough to get paid. Perhaps his nightly gig on Sky News is taking up all his energy. His lack of research on the Trump campaign and Trump himself, was downright embarrassing and cringe worthy. He was against him at first, but then was hammered by Trump supporters, who also happen to be the same crowd of “righties” who support Abbott and can’t stand Turnbull, and started to change his tune.
Then there is the comments section. People like “Simon” and a few other single first names leftists give themselves, have been allowed to troll over and over again, with the same leftist points, which others knock down, only to confront the same leftist talking points again the next day. Mindless drivel from Climate Alarmist scientists that were disproven years ago are trotted out. Smart arse comments on “free speech” and 18C are regularly inserted.
Most of the original friendly band of middle of the road conservative supporters of Bolt seem to have given up like I have. There are new names for awhile, and then they too leave. But “Simon” and his ilk remain, I would suggest that they are being paid for doing so, hence the identifiable (to the paymaster) names.
I used to tell people to be sure and read Bolt. No longer.
I must admit I go glassy eyed at times trying to understand the stuff about proxy data, proxy temperature, tree rings and graphs! Like trying to do a PhD in two weeks. Look, the people who have been sparring with this for quite a while have an excellent explanation for this in readable format for us climategate dummies.
