Political Correctness

If politicians were surgeons you’d never ask them to operate on you

And so the path to globalism marches on.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry will be the new climate envoy in a Biden administration, assuming the high probability he takes office in this still contested election.

Expect more blovating nonsense on climate change to satiate salivating crony capitalists. If COVID doesn’t kill you, climate change will! Got that, peasant?

Kerry is another career politician. He is the man who said peace in the Middle East was impossible. 3 peace deals later under a different administration and how stupid does he look? So should we believe his pontificating around climate change? Of course not.

Seriously, if politicians were surgeons there is no way you would ask them to operate on you given a glance at their win/loss ratio. Yet, Kerry will be afforded all of the media puff pieces on how he’ll be pivotal to saving us all despite reading geopolitics so poorly.

We await the grandiose statements about how close to doom we are. We await more nonsense around the Paris Accords – which grants China the ability to pollute as it pleases til 2030 – while the rest of us tip into the UN jar to misallocate resources for political favours.

You have to hand it to the political class. Await slower growth, higher electricity prices and more inefficiency which will end up in more debt fueled big government.

We’ll leave you with how the scientists believe in the science in a wonderful report compiled by the UN on its own processes. Donna Laframboise noted in her book, “The Delinquent Teenager” the following,

“In early 2010 the InterAcademy Council, an organization comprised of science bodies from around the world, took an historic step. It established a committee whose purpose was to investigate IPCC policies and procedures.

The committee posted a questionnaire on its website and invited interested parties to respond. Answers to those questionnaires were eventually made public after the names of the respondents had been removed. Those provided by IPCC insiders can be separated from the ones submitted by concerned citizens because the questionnaire begins by asking what role the respondent has played in the IPCC.

People with direct experience of this organization were remarkably frank in their feedback. According to them, scientific excellence isn’t the only reason individuals are invited to participate in the IPCC.

Remember, this is a UN body. It therefore cares about the same things other UN bodies care about. Things like diversity. Gender balance. Regional representation. The degree to which developing countries are represented compared to developed countries.

The collected answers to the questionnaire total 678 pages. As early as page 16, someone complains that: 

“some of the lead authors…are clearly not qualified to be lead authors.” 

Here are other direct quotes:

There are far too many politically correct appointments, so that developing country scientists are appointed who have insufficient scientific competence to do anything useful. This is reasonable if it is regarded as a learning experience, but in my chapter…we had half of the [lead authors] who were not competent.” (p. 138)

“The whole process…[is] flawed by an excessive concern for geographical balance. All decisions are political before being scientific.” (p. 554)

“half of the authors are there for simply representing different parts of the world.” (p. 296)

Lest anyone think that people from less affluent countries were being unjustly stereotyped, the person whose comments appear on page 330 agrees:

“The team members from the developing countries (including myself) were made to feel welcome and accepted as part of the team. In reality we were out of our intellectual depth as meaningful contributors to the process.”

Remember we are told to believe the IPCC is the final word in climate change science. Look forward to shared misery.

Harvard students circulate petition to ban Trump supporters from campus

A group of Harvard University students are pushing a petition which seeks to out anyone associated with President Trump by blacklisting them from “teaching, speaking, or attending the institution.”

Surely the whole point of attending a university of such standing is to use the superior intelligence, intellect and facts gained to guarantee that on the strength of the arguments alone, these Trump supporters wouldn’t dare come for fear of the abject humiliation that would follow.

Instead, these snowflakes want to shut down debate for fear they might have to listen to someone with different opinions. These poor trust fund babies. Who could forget this Harvard graduate who threatened to stab anyone who said All Lives Matter?

Didn’t Joe Biden call for Americans to “unite”? Maybe when Harvard alumni and former FLOTUS Michelle Obama said 75 million Trump supporters backed “lies, hate, chaos and division” she wasn’t helping heal that rift.

As we said this morning, education is increasingly looking like it should be free as it is seemingly worth little. Why learn when indoctrination is so much simpler?

At the very least, The Harvard Crimson, the student-run paper, blasted the policy as “paternalistic, ineffective, and contrary to the College’s stated goals of free speech.

Lori Lightfoot’s cringeworthy video abut science

Apart from being probably one of the most incompetent politicians in America, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot decided to follow up her Halloween costumes, Census Cowboy and demanding the defunded Chicago PD to protect her home with a cringeworthy video pushing a return to science.

We are somewhat concerned trusting science where certain members among Democrats believe that men have a right to menstruate or think Bill Nye the science guy is a modicum of balance.

5 Lessons to live by

Great speech made by Rep Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) on the 5 lessons he learnt as a Navy SEAL. Really worth listening to.

Kamala Harris loses identity politics prize to Republicans

How the mainstream media swooned that Senator Kamala Harris was the first VP of colour. While identity is an irrelevant metric versus capability in our view, the narrative further goes to debunk systemic racism.

We note that the first BIPOC vice president was Charles Curtis, a member of the Caw Nation. He was Herbert Hoover’s vice president from 1929 to 1933. Curtis was born to a white father and a one-quarter Kaw Indian mother.

During the early part of his life, Curtis was raised in North Topeka, Kansas. He split his time living between the white and Native American communities. Link here on the U.S. Senate website.

More actually voted for Trump than Biden?

From Rasmussen Reports on Monday:

Among Trump voters, 90% say they voted for the president, while just eight percent (8%) say they were voting against Biden.

But among Biden voters, only 56% say they were voting for Biden. Twenty-nine percent (29%) of these voters say they were voting against Trump, while a surprisingly high 15% are not sure.”

So will AOC and her ilk assign a lower grade punishment for the 8% who just didn’t want to vote Joe when the Trump-enabler hit list is compiled?

If we hypothetically hold the Rasmussen stats as fairly representative of the electorate, would it be fair to say that 67m actually voted for Trump as their desired choice and 59.7m for Biden as their preferred candidate? Of course an anti- Trump/Biden vote still counts. Just interesting to see how much more relatively unpopular Biden is as a stand alone candidate.

Who knew WaPo would let democracy die in darkness?

Well, well, well. Who knew that the Washington Post would write an article saying the Erie, Pennsylvania post office worker who went on Project Veritas to whistleblow on voter fraud had recanted his story.

WaPo wrote,

“[The whistleblower] told investigators from the U.S. Postal Service’s Office of Inspector General that the allegations were not true, and he signed an affidavit recanting his claims, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe an ongoing investigation. Democrats on the House Oversight Committee tweeted late Tuesday that the “whistleblower completely RECANTED.”

In this video, the same worker, Richard Hopkins, went on record saying he never did such a thing.

Interesting that the WaPo followed up by publishing a smear to discredit Hopkins with ,

The Erie postmaster, Rob Weisenbach, called the allegations “100% false” in a Facebook post and said they were made “by an employee that was recently disciplined multiple times.”

Are an employee’s internal employment records fit for public consumption? Even if he was disciplined, what exactly was his crime? Was it verbal? Written? Did he chew gum while sorting? Or did he merely refuse to participate in following orders given to him to break the law? Maybe WaPo let the wrong cat out of the bag. If Hopkins wasn’t disciplined maybe they’ll face a law suit (like Covington High student Nick Sandmann) for trying to smear him publicly with insufficient grounds?

Will we witness the biggest climb down in history?

While Trump hasn’t conceded, the media have called this election. Never mind that the electoral college decides that and with so much court drama, we may get see a slim chance of Trump winning. What if he did?

The media has wasted no time mocking Trump by publishing articles at just how relieved world leaders are to have a return to the status quo. This idea of division. Really? Trump merely exposed the sheer incompetence of so many leaders and the graft and corruption that goes on in the swamp. He may be no clean shirt himself given he is a NY property tycoon but he has exposed the double standards among the political class who have been completely self serving. What happened to “of the people, by the people and for the people“?

Honestly, in what world does rejoining UN bodies achieve anything other than waste money pushing for globalist nonsense and lining up crony capitalists to feed at the teat of things like climate change and open borders?

Wouldn’t it be ironic to see these world leaders currently publicly distancing themselves from Trump having to do an about face if the courts rule the Biden victory as illegitimate?

Talk about division. World leaders maybe using the media’s call on the election for their own political purposes, but there is some real schadenfreude in the offing if these hacks who have failed to call anything right for four years end up eating their own words as the drown in hubris.

Politically incorrect car polish

Bowden’s (not Biden’s) is a politically incorrect car maintenance brand from Australia which says it tests on animals and has a very satisfying instruction point 6! All instructions on any products should include such advisories.

Pretty good results. Oh, and Shine Armor is rubbish.

Profane but profound

Jonathan Pie on the money again.
