HuffPo Finally Admits the Existence of Global Cooling

from Breitbart:

Scientists believe they have discovered a near-unprecedented phenomenon – rarer, more elusive and mysterious than even the God Particle: an article in The Huffington Post on the subject of the environment and climate change which doesn’t once mention ‘man-made global warming.”

This extraordinary event was observed in an April 17th HuffPo article entitled ‘The Great Lakes Are Still Almost Half Frozen, And It Could Affect The Environment For Years’. The article notes that ice coverage on the lakes remains unseasonally thick – the second highest ice-cover for the time of year since recording began in 1973. It also dutifully mentions, as all HuffPo pieces must, that there have been disastrous environmental consequences, in this case “unprecedented duck deaths” and “disruptions to the fish ecosystem.” read more

Prototype Firebirds Found

They’re the ‘Holy Grail’ of muscle cars and ‘Fast N’ Loud’ host Richard Rawlings has discovered the first prototypes ever built hidden away in a Connecticut garage.

Called ‘#1′ and ‘#2′ the cars are the prototype models Pontiac engineers used as the base for the 1967 Firebird.

Upon its release, the Firebird completely changed the way ‘muscle cars’ were seen.

Rawling's was tipped off about the Firebirds by a client who had just purchased a 'pretty rare Corvette'

The Liberal Policy That May Kill Us All

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I enjoy watching TV shows chronicling natural disasters. I’m fascinated by them as apparently a lot of us are. These programs are very popular. Hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, volcanoes and earthquakes.

Yes, the results of these disasters can be tragic and the suffering caused by them can be unimaginable, but these phenomena are still fascinating to a lot of us.

A recent example of these programs was rebroadcast just the other day on the History Channel. It was entitled Megaquake 10.0. The premise of the show was to examine and compare past powerful earthquakes and the destruction they cause, to a magnitude 10.0 Megaquake, with as much as 30 times more devastating force then most recent major earthquakes. read more

Chocolate Toothpaste

For the child who has everything, now there’s chocolate flavored toothpaste – which costs £60 ($100) per tube.

Luxury oral care firm Theodent use an extract from the cacao plant instead of fluoride, something they say is a family-friendly alternative substance, not least because it tastes like pudding.

‘Harnessing the power of the cocoa bean’, the patented ingredient dubbed Rennou is a safe-to-swallow replacement to toxic fluoride present in most toothpastes. read more

Extinct Falcon Discovered

I’ve received many remarkable nature photographs over the years but this photo of a nesting Falcon is perhaps the most remarkable shot that I’ve ever seen. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Nature is truly breath-taking!

For years it was thought that this particular species of Falcon was extinct. Imagine the surprise of the nature photographer to spy one resting peacefully high up in a tree. It appears to be very old – possibly the last of it’s kind. read more

Yes Virginia, There is a “Kind of God”

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

There is a new series on climate change and environmentalism airing on Showtime, produced by none other than James Cameron, movie-maker and climate alarmist.

 

I was unaware of the series and only found out about it from Marc Marano of Climate Depot. Climate Depot is the one-stop shop for everything to debunk global warming and extreme environmentalism. Bookmark it for sure.

 

Anyway, the series spotlights several leftist intellectuals like Paul Krugman and Thomas L Friedman. It also spotlights a segment on the actor Harrison Ford.

 

Until now, I liked Harrison Ford, or at least his movies and the characters he portrays. I figured him to be a typical Hollywood lefty, but wasn’t sure. I had never really heard much of his politics, and liked it that way. Just keep your politics to yourself and do what you do best – act.

 

But after watching him in Cameron’s series, on a trip to Indonesia, my view of him has changed, and not for the better. read more

Pocket Size Printer

Every day we hear of more things going mobile, but nobody seems to have paid much attention to the printer.

That is, until now, as one company has unveiled their ‘revolutionary’ printing robot.

The pocket-sized wireless gadget rolls across paper and prints out whatever you tell it to.

The mini robot printer can finish a page in one minute and lasts about an hour on one charge read more

Joke of the Day

One day a man took the train from New York to Washington DC. When he got in he said to the ticket man:

“Sir. I really need you to do me a favor, I have to get down this train in Baltimore, but I’m very tired and it is for sure that I will fall asleep. So what I want you to do is that you wake me up when we arrive in Baltimore because I have to close a business deal there and it is very important for me. Here is 100 dollars for the favor. But I warn you, sometimes when people wake me up I get really violent, but no matter what I do or say you’ve got to get me out of this train in Baltimore. Is that clear?” read more

Thoughts on the Bundy Ranch Standoff

By: the Common Constitutionalist

 

I haven’t commented as of yet on the Bundy ranch incident. I’ve been thinking about it and would like to share a few observations and maybe a question or two.

 

During the standoff: “They are flying helicopters over the herd to chase them,” Ammon Bundy, son of Cliven said. “It was over 90 degrees here today, and the cattle can’t run very far in this heat before collapsing. This is especially true for the young calves. We have a lot of them being born because it is springtime, and they don’t have the strength to keep up with their mothers when they are running. The cattle then become overheated and die.”

 

So my first question is, where’s PETA? Where are the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals? Are they not an animal rights organization? Do they not protest the mistreatment of any animal, or do cattle not count? Or is it just like the NOW gang, the National Organization of Liberal Women, who just pretend to be for women’s rights unless it’s a liberal man who’s the abuser; and then it’s silence. Is PETA just another left wing radical group who only protest animal abuses by the right? In a word – Yep! No matter how many cattle were intentionally or accidently killed, you won’t here a peep from PETA. Not as long as Obama is king.

 

During the standoff Bundy’s wife Carol said it appeared snipers surrounded the family’s 150 acre ranch.

 

I wasn’t there, but I have heard from more than just Mrs. Bundy that there were indeed snipers posted about. If she was able to spot them, I can only conclude that they wanted to be seen or were ordered not to cover and remain in plain sight. And if that was the case, the obvious question is, Gee, I wonder why? Could it be for intimidation? Once again, I would say – Yep! read more
