The Prince and Princess of Woke continue to become ever more cringeworthy.
It is surreal to hear lectures from people like this imploring we build “communities of compassion.” Harry infamously wore a Nazi uniform to a fancy dress party and Meghan thinks a nuclear family destroying self-professed Marxist co-founder of BLM is someone to aspire to and worthy of a Netflix docuseries.
Harry blathered about clamping down on hate speech and misinformation. Don’t they read the mainstream media or see the party they are endorsing took 100 days to condemn rioting, looting and destruction of public property in their own back yard?
No wonder the Queen had the Palace slap her grandson.
As the media were too preoccupied praising Kamala Harris for making ‘Timberland boots cool again” – after they lambasted Melania Trump for wearing them several years ago – journalists overlooked the fact that the Minnesota Freedom Fund she openly endorsed bailed out Timothy Wayne Columbus.
He faces up to 30 years in prison for allegedly sexually assaulting an eight-year-old girl in 2015. He was released from a Minneapolis jail in early July on $75,000 bail, according to jail records.
In August, MFF paid $350,000 in cash to release twice-convicted rapist Christopher Boswell from jail. Boswell currently faces charges of kidnapping and sexual assault as well.
The fund bailed out Lionel Timms from jail in late July on a third-degree felony assault charge for allegedly assaulting a person on a bus. Timms was arrested again while out on bail for allegedly assaulting a bar manager, who was left with a traumatic brain injury.
MFF Interim Executive Director Greg Lewin released a statement in response to Timms’ second offence saying his arrest while out on bail was a “failure of the criminal justice system.”
Deshaun Jermain Boyd was released from jail on $70,000 bail in July after being charged with 1st-degree aggravated robbery. He stomped on the head of a man with a cane and robbed him.
Do we need to go any further to show up a system where a potential president proudly paints criminals as victims?
Wow. Scientific American has endorsed Joe Biden. This is the first time the magazine has backed a presidential candidate in 175 years. We think it may live to regret its move. The magazine has merely exposed the deep partisan bias and confirmed again how much of scientific academia and media leans left. Why?
The editors closed with,
“It’s time to move Trump out and elect Biden, who has a record of following the data and being guided by science.”
If we listened to Joe Biden’s ‘Moses and the 10 Commandments’ speech the other day, it was full of unsubstantiated hyperbole about the risks of higher incidences of floods, hurricanes and wildfires if Trump is reelected despite the fact that under the current administration, harmful GHG emissions have fallen by the largest absolute number ever in 2019 according to the IEA.
For a magazine that rests its laurels on “following the data” and “being guided by the science”, perhaps it missed the UNIPCC’s March 2018 report on weather extremes (with respect to anthropogenic induced global warming) which noted:
“…There is low confidence in observed trends in small-scale phenomena such as tornadoes and hail because of data inhomogeneities and inadequacies in monitoring systems…in some regions droughts have become less frequent, less intense, or shorter, for example, in central North America and northwestern Australia. There is limited to medium evidence available to assess climate-driven observed changes in the magnitude and frequency of floods…low confidence for the attribution of any detectable changes in tropical cyclone activity to anthropogenic influences..low confidence in projections of changes in extreme winds.. low confidence in projections of changes in monsoons…low confidence in wave height projections…overall low confidence because of inconsistent projections of drought changes…low confidence in projected future changes in dust storms…low confidence in projections of an anthropogenic effect on phenomena such as shallow landslides.”
Perhaps the editors missed the questionnaire posted by the UN Interacademy Council committee on its website which invited interested parties to respond to the scientific processes at the IPCC during the compilation of the gold standard climate bibles? These were some of the responses;
“some of the lead authors…are clearly not qualified to be lead authors.” (p.16)
“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 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.” (p.330)
The founders of Scientific American must be rolling over in their graves. If their scientific rigour is as sound as their endorsement then Trump has even more chances to secure reelection.
This should be seen as a rejection of Trump not an endorsement for Biden.
Can you spot the difference? Here is Joe Biden’s version.
The irony is that America, despite not being a signatory of the Paris Climate Accord, has recorded the largest falls in GHG emissions of any nation on an absolute basis ever under Trump. The IEA reported,
“The United States saw the largest decline in energy-related CO2 emissions in 2019 on a country basis – a fall of 140 Mt, or 2.9%, to 4.8 Gt.”
As the polls narrow, Speaker Nancy Pelosi made a public statement that Joe Biden shouldn’t do the debates. Of course her excuse was that Trump doesn’t deserve a platform. In reality she wants Joe locked in the basement so he doesn’t implode.
Joe Biden contradicted Pelosi’s request and said he would do the debates. Bring your popcorn.
For all the mainstream media’s insistence that white supremacists are a monolithic group firmly entrenched in Republican dogma, how it must pain the left to admit that Richard Spencer backs VP Joe Biden. Spencer was a leading figure in the August 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, VA which was attended by neo-nazis.
How the media went out of its way to twist Trump’s “very fine people” statement as an endorsement for neo-nazis, white nationalists and alt-right-wingers when he 100% denounced and condemned them in that same press conference as evidenced here.
Oh, the irony the same liberals that have demanded Trump disavow white nationalists who endorsed him (he already has) are eerily silent to demand that Joe Biden reject Spencer’s support. As Dinesh D’Souza pointed out,
“Anyone on the Left who claims white supremacists are for Trump with nothing more than an old photo or anecdote to prove it must now contend with the fact that the poster boy of white supremacy, Richard Spencer, has announced he’s voting Biden & straight Democratic ticket.”
