New Zealand Conservationist: “Population Growth Is The Cause Of Climate Change”

Large Population

Even though the radical theory known as the Population Bomb, which foretold how world overpopulation would destroy mankind in the early 70’s, has been proven to be untrue, its fear mongering principles are still alive and well today. But instead of an irrational fear based solely upon mankind’s destruction due to overpopulation, it has now morphed into an irrational fear based on how world overpopulation is causing Climate Change which in turn will lead to the destruction of mankind.

Scoop reports that Tony Orman, a well known New Zealand Conservationist, hunter, and author is claiming that the recent United Nation’s Paris Climate Conference was a complete waste of time since it failed to address the real cause of Climate Change, growth in the world’s population:

“The human population growth factor in global warming is being ignored says a Marlborough conservationist Tony Orman, also an author and immediate past chairman of the Council of Outdoor Recreation Associations of NZ (CORANZ).

His comment was made following the just concluded United Nations global-warming talks in Paris.

The world’s most senior politicians have debated ways to combat accelerated climate change. But it’s voluntary and besides it’s a sticking plaster approach – treat symptoms but ignore the cause. There’s one very important undebated factor – people” he said.

…People drove cars which belched emissions, coal fired power stations belched and jet planes farted “gases and particles — which contribute to climate change.” Humans demand resources, flush toilets, use chemical insecticides and pesticides and throw away garbage.

“Humans or more particularly numbers of people, are the primary cause of environmental degradation and global warming. The more people, the more demand for resources. More people require more meat and milk – more cows. More people means more cars which means more emissions. Gimmee more, more and more”.”

Mr. Orman goes on to tout the now debunked theory of the “Population Bomb” as a credible source for his concerns and then laments that the government of New Zealand has failed to come up with any kind of “population control” policy.

On a totally unrelated note, in 2008 President Obama appointed John Holdren to be his Senior Adviser on Science and Technology. Director Holdren was a known supporter of Paul Ehrlich, the author of the 1968 book titled, The Population Bomb.

It seems Mr. Orman may not be the only one who believes that controlling the population is the way to combat Climate Change. The Obama administration may very well share the same view. At least, one of the President’s closest advisers does.

Fortunately Mr. Orman doesn’t have a bone to pick with the United States since the Obama administration already has a “population control” policy in place. It’s known as… Planned Parenthood.

Virginia High School ISLAMIC CALLIGRAPHY Lesson Teaches ‘There Is No God But Allah’

Islamic Calligraphy

Public schools used to indoctrinate students with liberal ideologies and group-think agendas. Now some public schools are indoctrinating using Islamic traditions too.

CNS News reports:

Students at Riverheads High School in Virginia were asked to copy a bit of calligraphy in their world geometry class that translated to, “There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.”

Once the students got word out to their parents, all heck broke loose.

The teacher, Cheryl LaPorte claims that the students were learning about monotheistic religions and the Augusta County Superintendent sent out a press release stating that the teaching material was supposed to show the students how complex and artful Middle East language is.

Remember when the left used to want to keep religion out of schools?


State Department Will Release Next Batch Of Hillary Clinton’s Emails On NEW YEAR’S EVE

Hillary drinking

While no one is looking or paying attention, the State Department is set to release the latest round of Hillary Clinton’s email on New Year’s Eve.

Weasel Zippers reports via the Hill:

Thousands of Hillary Clinton’s private emails will hit the Internet on New Year’s Eve thanks to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that permits the State Department to wait until the end of each month to release the documents.

The holiday email release will mark the eighth time the agency has published a batch of Clinton’s records according to the monthly schedule. The first release came in May of this year and contained fewer than 300 emails, all of them related to Benghazi.

Clinton’s use of a personal server to shield her private emails from the public hobbled the early days of her presidential campaign.

In the weeks since, her poll numbers have rebounded and speculation about whether the email controversy could cost her the nomination has largely abated.

Isn’t that convenient?


Feminist Icon Camille Paglia Says ‘Rape Culture’ IS A RIDICULOUS TERM

Camille Paglia

In case you haven’t heard, the term ‘rape culture’ is the rallying cry of progressive feminists on college campuses.

Professor and author Camille Paglia isn’t buying it.

A writer for Spiked Online recently interviewed her:

Whelan: Speaking of a backward turn, young feminists today are obsessed with the idea of ‘rape culture’. Do you think that, as the idea of rape culture suggests, sexual violence is normalised?

Paglia: ‘Rape culture’ is a ridiculous term – mere gassy propaganda, too rankly bloated to critique. Anyone who sees sex so simplistically has very little sense of world history, anthropology or basic psychology. I feel very sorry for women who have been seduced by this hyper-politicised, victim-centered rhetoric, because in clinging to such superficial, inflammatory phrases, they have renounced their own power and agency.

You can read the whole interview here.

Camille Paglia has spoken out against other progressive gender policies this year.


Actor Samuel L. Jackson Hoped San Bernardino Terrorist WAS A CRAZY WHITE DUDE

Samuel L Jackson

If your first thought after hearing about a terror attack is how it might benefit your personal politics, there’s something wrong with you.

The Hollywood Reporter has the story:

Jackson says he empathizes with innocent Muslim-Americans who have fallen under the veil of suspicion because a few other people who share their religion have committed atrocities against their countrymen: “When that thing happened in France, we were sitting there going, ‘Oh, my God, these terrorists!’ And I can’t even tell you how much that day the thing that happened in San Bernardino — I was in Hawaii — how much I really wanted that to just be another, you know, crazy white dude, and not really some Muslims, because it’s like: ‘Oh, shit. It’s here. And it’s here in another kind of way.’ Now, okay, it happened on an Army base and it happened somewhere else. But now? It’s like they have a legitimate reason now to look at your Muslim neighbor, friend, whatever in another way. And they become the new young black men.”

How is that not racist?

REPORT: President Obama to Campaign Against Donald Trump OVERSEAS

Obama in Berlin

Remember when George W. Bush used his influence as president to campaign against Democrats who were running for president in 2008? Neither does anyone else, but that’s not stopping Obama.

Breitbart has the story:

Report: Obama To Campaign Overseas Against Donald Trump

President Barack Obama plans to campaign against Donald Trump’s pro-American 2016 campaign by rallying international opposition among foreigners, according to Politico.

“Going into next year, Obama will be speaking out against Trump, as he did indirectly in several pro-immigration speeches earlier this month… pushing back against Trump will be a central theme of Obama’s international engagement,” according to a Politico article.

“The nature of American politics is that all these statements are consumed around the world,” said deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes. “When there are statements that could present challenges in terms of perceptions of America’s openness to people of different faiths and America’s inclusiveness, the president is going to speak out on that.”

Democrats accused Bush of meddling in foreign affairs but they’ll have no problem with this.



Bill Nye

Bill Nye has apparently never watched television. If he had, he would know that the liberal media talks about climate change all the time. They’re obsessed with the subject.

NewsBusters reports:

Bill Nye the Nutty Guy Claims No One Says ‘Climate Change’ on TV

At 30, MSNBC guest host Luke Russert is young enough to gush over Bill Nye the Science Guy by saying he used to watch his Nineties PBS show when they had a substitute science teacher in class. But in this December 23 interview, Nye got weird and insisted no one on TV says the words “climate change.” Is this guy a scientist? This is like saying no one on TV says the word “politics.”

“We have a situation where no one in regular television will say the phrase ‘climate change,’” Nye proclaimed, calling out several MSNBC meteorologists by first name. “Nobody will mention this phrase.”

Watch the video:

This guy is an authority on the subject? Really?


THE FERGUSON EFFECT: How Progressives Are Trying to Hide Their Role in Violent Crimes

Ferguson riots

Leftists in politics and media played a role in the riots and fires of Ferguson which have impacted crime levels in other cities. Now they want to hide this reality from the public in order to keep it from becoming an issue in the 2016 campaign.

Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute writes at the Wall Street Journal:

Trying to Hide the Rise of Violent Crime

Murders and shootings have spiked in many American cities—and so have efforts to ignore or deny the crime increase. The see-no-evil campaign eagerly embraced a report last month by the Brennan Center for Justice called “Crime in 2015: A Preliminary Analysis.” Many progressives and their media allies hailed the report as a refutation of what I and others have dubbed the “Ferguson effect”— cops backing off from proactive policing, demoralized by the ugly vitriol directed at them since a police shooting in Ferguson, Mo., last year. Americans are being asked to disbelieve both the Ferguson effect and its result: violent crime flourishing in the ensuing vacuum.

In fact, the Brennan Center’s report confirms the Ferguson effect, while also showing how clueless the media are about crime and policing.

The Brennan researchers gathered homicide data from 25 of the nation’s 30 largest cities for the period Jan. 1, 2015, to Oct. 1, 2015. (Not included were San Francisco, Indianapolis, Columbus, El Paso and Nashville.) The researchers then tried to estimate what 2015’s full-year homicide numbers for those 25 cities would be, based on the extent to which homicides were up from January to October this year compared with the similar period in 2014.

The resulting projected increase for homicides in 2015 in those 25 cities is 11%. (By point of comparison, the FiveThirtyEight data blog looked at the 60 largest cities and found a 16% increase in homicides by September 2015.) An 11% one-year increase in any crime category is massive; an equivalent decrease in homicides would be greeted with high-fives by politicians and police chiefs. Yet the media have tried to repackage that 11% homicide increase as trivial.

Read the rest here.

Democrats have pandered to the #BlackLivesMatter movement in hope of political support but most Americans are more concerned about law and order.

Let’s hope the Democrats pay at the polls next fall.


OF COURSE: Heavily Redacted Hillary Benghazi Emails NEWS DUMPED ON CHRISTMAS EVE

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence recently released some potentially damaging news for Hillary Clinton.

On Christmas Eve.

The Hill reported:

Heavily redacted Benghazi emails released on Christmas Eve

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) released a handful of sensitive documents Thursday morning dealing with terrorism suspect Anwar al-Awlaki and the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

The Christmas Eve document dump includes 16 pages of heavily blacked-out emails about the events surrounding the 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi that killed four Americans.

The DNI emails about Benghazi are heavily redacted and appear to contain little new information. Several of the emails discuss the drafting of an assessment of the threat level ahead of the attack, which was being prepared for Congress in the months after four Americans were killed in the attack.
Other emails include periodic press clippings about the state of Benghazi in the years after the incident, which were meant to give staffers “situational awareness.”

Another document released Thursday is a memo to the State Department that shows the DNI signed off on a proposal to revoke al-Awlaki’s U.S. passport about seven and a half months before he was killed by the U.S. in a 2011 drone strike in Yemen.

It’s almost like they’re hiding stuff to protect Hillary Clinton.


Disgraced Massachusetts Democrat Busted For STASHING ONE MILLION DOLLARS IN CASH

John George Jr

The Democratic Party has enjoyed a majority in Massachusetts for way too long. Bay State voters would be well advised to try something different, for once.

Here’s the latest episode of Democrat corruption in Massachusetts.

Derek Hunter reports at the Daily Caller:

Disgraced Democrat Caught With $1 Million In Cash Hidden In Safety Deposit Boxes

John George — a former Massachusetts state representative who was convicted earlier this year for embezzling money from a taxpayer-subsidized bus company he owned — is in hot water again for not properly reporting $1 million in cash hidden in safety deposit boxes.

The disgraced Democrat was required to disclose his financial assets before being sentenced in July of 2015.

George “only reported about $160,000 in bank accounts and another $28,000 in cash,” according to Boston’s WCVB.

Just this week, however, U.S. Marshals gained access to safety deposit boxes owned by George and discovered more than $1 million cash in banks in Fairhaven and New Bedford.
