The brass tacks. All depressing but facts you need to know, including Loretta Lynch saying illegal immigrants have the same rights as American citizens like you and me. Oh is it racist to say “American citizens?” Transcript here http://www.truthrevolt.org/videos/bill-whittle-brass-tacks-immigration. We are so screwed, we are simply repeating all the failed policies of Western Europe and Scandinavia, learning absolutely nothing from their mistakes.
Yeh I know that’s a whiny thing to say but jeez Louise, things are bad and getting worse, it doesn’t much feel like America. This is what happens when a radical European socialist gets reelected and has nothing to lose. Yesterday I simply couldn’t repeat the bad news on my blog.
My blog. Wonder how long it will be before the new Internet requires a license to start a blog and the gov’t censors what it doesn’t like? http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/414380/fcc-chair-refuses-testify-congress-ahead-net-neutrality-vote-andrew-Johnson I’m with Don Surber, Congress needs to throw a couple of haughty bureaucrats in jail; who do these jerks think they work for anyway? and billionaire investor is not happy about the new ObamaNet either, he’s saying what others fear: This will not not end well. http://www.breitbart.com/video/2015/02/26/cuban-fcc-net-regs-will-spill-over-tv-as-you-know-it-is-over/
The worst news, of course, is the capitulation by Mitch McConnell on everything that he was reelected to fix. Do people in DC not realize how much the EO amnesty will change America, how wrong it is, and how much Middle America hates this threat to our national security and culture? http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/02/26/mcconnell-faces-conservative-backlash-over-compromise-to-fund-dhs-dems-get-on/ and http://www.nationalreview.com/article/414428/our-illiberal-immigration-policy-leads-chaos-victor-davis-hanson and http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/02/23/dem-rep-amnesty-fight-will-decide-who-controls-country-for-next-30-years/
Why not shut down the DHS, another stinking bureaucracy that exists to provide jobs to people so they’ll continue to vote for Big Government? It’s only a few years old and Americans hate much of it but already it’s a sacred cow? Remember how some conservatives, most libertarians and all liberals hated the DHS when George W created it?
Too bad the GOP is more afraid of the MSM than voters. It’s obvious to anyone with half a brain that the media is not only liberal, not only elected Obama, not only protect Obama and the Democrats but they target Republicans with rage and contempt but the GOP has to learn to talk to Americans over the media or else the party will become obsolete, most likely replaced by a libertarian version. I thought McConnell was smart, look how he played his hand at the outset, throwing shutdown of DHS off the table just to get the media off his back. Someone in the GOP has to say in a voice clearly understood by Americans that the Democrats and Obama care more about jobs and votes of foreigners than it does protecting Americans. That’s what an open borders policy is. How can you be a nation if you have no borders?
Cant the GOP at least fight, even if they don’t win? Just what we need, another Eric Holder, who’ll let Obama do anything and play politics with the DOJ to a scale unimaginable before. http://hotair.com/archives/2015/02/26/senate-judiciary-committee-votes-to-confirm-loretta-lynch-as-ag-thanks-to-three-republicans/

Obama is a product of the anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, pro-Palestinian left. Jimmy Carter was an idiot who brought the extreme Islamists to power in Iran, Obama is the bigger idiot who’s going to give the bomb to a nation which believes its sacred duty is to destroy both Israel and the United States. I’ve watched the growth of Iran as a terrorist nation and supporter of international terror for 30 years and it’s unbelievable to me that our president is so stupid and vain that he thinks his personal trust of Rouhani overrides everything else. http://www.timesofisrael.com/now-we-know-who-to-believe-on-iran/ and http://www.clarionproject.org/analysis/new-secret-iranian-nuclear-facility-revealed#

Yeh what a track record. Turns out they were wrong on cholesterol, wrong on salt, wrong on margarine substitute for butter, wrong on eggs, wrong on aerobic exercise [thanks, Jane Fonda, for the knee/hip replacements all over America], and now it appears cancer has nothing to do with lifestyle such as food/exercise but is simply tough luck in most cases. http://www.whitehousedossier.com/2015/02/21/michelle-leads-government-kitchen/
Oh and that nasty coal that causes asthma all over Appalachia and America? Eh, not so much. Better look at cockroaches in your house. Which isn’t really new news, it’s been cited for many years that the #1 trigger for asthma is cockroaches in the home, #2 is mice/rats, which explains why there’s so much asthma in inner cities. Of course, some people worry about the souls of cockroaches so that could be a problem…. http://www.canberratimes.com.au/act-news/vegetarian-restaurateur-did-not-want-to-kill-cockroaches-on-moral-grounds-20150201-1313kf.html
A small victory over the nanny-state http://hotair.com/archives/2015/02/20/caveman-blogger-wins-right-to-blog-advice-about-food-and-fitness-without-a-state-license/
Forget about body-busting aerobics and running, work on getting strong. Here’s a month-long guide based on the Mark Rippetoe method of free weights. http://www.muscleandfitness.com/workouts/workout-routines/4-week-guide-starting-strength
This sounds gross but fecal transplants have had quite the success in immune-compromised patients fighting super infections, such as the elderly with C difficile. Now evidence begins to emerge that transplants from fecal-healthy but obese donors cause obesity in the sick recipients and transplants from fecal-healthy but skinny donors cause weight loss in the sick recipients. The gut, your brain’s in there, or at least some brain cells. http://boingboing.net/2015/02/07/turd-transplant-leads-to-rapid.html and http://www.bbc.com/news/health-31168511
As for the panel admiration of organic vegetarian diet, looks as though organic farming [which I use in my home garden] really is just a niche. http://geneticliteracyproject.org/2015/02/18/organic-agricultures-low-yields-arent-sustainable/
And that anti-GMO is anti-science rhetoric. Not only did the former co-founder of Greenpeace admit they made up the GMO ‘problem’ to raise money, there’s zero scientific evidence – even from enviros – that GMO is harmful and can tremendously increase much-needed yields in hungry nations. GMO is a First World problem that hurts Third World nations who can’t toy-shop at Whole Foods.
And he’s gone, folks. The charges of sexual harassment there’s now 2 accusers have resulted in the chakra-squeezing resignation of the UN IPCC head Rajendra Pachauri . The story hit WUWT and other anti-AGW sites last weekend but didn’t make the MSM. He’s gone amid an outpouring of admission that climate change was indeed his religion. Hey some of us have bee saying that a long time, buddy. What a nasty piece of work he was, and no scientist, has a poli sci degree, like gore. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2015/02/24/un-ipcc-climate-head-rajendra-pachauri-resigns-amid-sexual-harassment-allegations/ and http://www.climatedepot.com/2015/02/24/un-ipcc-chief-admits-global-warming-is-religious-issue-it-is-my-religion-and-my-dharma/ and http://www.climatedepot.com/2015/02/24/climate-depots-morano-statement-on-pachauris-resignation-the-ipcc-is-quietly-popping-champagne-corks-today-pachauri-gone-can-only-be-good-news-for-the-un-ipcc/
