Mark Zuckerberg Is Meeting In Secret With Conservatives Discussing Free Speech

Well, what do you know?

Seems that CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has been sitting down in secret with conservative pundits, writers and even a congressperson as of late. Maybe he realizes that Elizabeth Warren and her merry bunch of zealots are worse than dealing with people he opposes politically.

According to Politico this has been going on for a short time…

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been hosting informal talks and small, off-the-record dinners with conservative journalists, commentators and at least one Republican lawmaker in recent months to discuss issues like free speech and discuss partnerships.

The dinners, which began in July, are part of Zuckerberg’s broader effort to cultivate friends on the right amid outrage by President Donald Trump and his allies over alleged “bias” against conservatives at Facebook and other major social media companies. “I’m under no illusions that he’s a conservative but I think he does care about some of our concerns,” said one person familiar with the gatherings, which multiple sources have confirmed.

Some of the people who have been rumored to have attended the meetings are Mary Katharine Ham, Ben Shapiro, Matt Continetti, Guy Benson, and Brent Bozell. Byron York confirmed he attended one of the dinners but refused to discuss what was talked about.

The article does say that this outreach was to try and ease some of the fears of those that might have some influence with the Trump administration in the hope to quiet some of the saber-rattling.

Trump is not your problem Mark.

Elizabeth Warren is on the warpath (PUN FULLY INTENDED) and she is coming for your monopoly buddy.

This is a classic example of liberals wanting to claim the higher ground while shutting down any discussion of any ground under the rules of feelings being hurt. Zuckerberg is part of this mindset no matter how many dinners he holds to try a charm offensive and act otherwise.

All you have to do is treat both sides equally.

In this case, what that means is to let the words fly. Don’t referee to any side and you will not have any issue. The notion that Facebook has been treating all sides fairly is ludicrous. Just go and google how many grievances people that are “right” leaning have been banned as opposed to “left” leaning. The complaints are numerous on the right. If you think the left doesn’t like to complain when they get axed I have a bridge to sell you in Chappaquiddick.

Hopefully, these meetings do show Mark that conservatives are not that scary and these concerns should be dealt with going from the top down.

Otherwise, you will have to deal with Elizabeth Warren and no one rational wants to do that.

Watch: Lee Zeldin Blasts Schiff’s “Impeachment Cocktail”, Demands Vote on Impeachment Inquiry

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., speaks during a news conference, with other House members, where they called for a second prosecutor to investigate the Dept. of Justice and FBI, Tuesday, May 22, 2018, on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)

Last week, I wrote about how Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) absolutely ripped House Intel Chair Adam Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over what he called a “clown show” impeachment inquiry process where selective bits of information were allegedly being leaked to the media by Democrats in order to paint a distorted picture of what had been said behind closed doors so far.

Zeldin, the ranking member on the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, continued hammering this point home over the weekend in several interviews, including one he did on ABC Sunday with Jonathan Karl.

During the interview, Zeldin blasted the fact that Pelosi still refuses to hold an impeachment inquiry vote on the House floor, which would give Republicans subpoena power and President Trump’s legal team the ability to do things like cross-examine witnesses.

He also pointed out that Schiff was trying to get Americans drunk on an “impeachment cocktail”, which he said contained three ingredients.

Here’s a partial transcript:

KARL: So you’re OK with all — all the transcripts coming out? You want to see Fiona Hill, who’s testifying next week, you want to see all — all the people that the administration does not want to testify, you want those transcripts to be out?

ZELDIN: No, the president wants there to be a process. The president is saying that there should be a vote for an impeachment inquiry, as you just pointed out with Congressman Himes, there should be a process. The minority parties should have subpoena power. The president should have counsel present. He should be able to cross-exam witnesses; he should be able to present evidence. There should be a process, but instead what Adam Schiff wants is to get United States of America drunk on his favorite cocktail. There’s three ingredients. One is cherry-picking leaks, second is withholding facts, and three is just outright lying. I mean he is — he lied about his whistleblower contact, he lied when he gave his opening statement in front of the Acting Director of National Intelligence, he lied when he said that President Trump requested President Zelensky to, quote, manufacture dirt. Now, if we all had Ambassador Volker’s testimony, we would know that that’s not true. We would also know that it obliterated the quid pro quo charge, that fairytale, that President Trump supposedly demanded that there would be an investigation open against the Bidens in order to get aid from the United States to Ukraine.

KARL: It’s clear that he brought this up exactly when the issue with aid to Ukraine was raised.

ZELDIN: No — well let’s — this, what Ambassador Volker’s transcript would show you substantively.

Zeldin also stated that contra to media/Democrat talking points that suggest otherwise, the assertions Trump made about Joe Biden and Hunter Biden as it relates to the Ukrainian prosecutor and Burisma Holdings have not been debunked.

Elizabeth Warren Starts to Pull Away From Biden in Early States

Now that we are almost halfway through October, these polls are going to start to matter a lil bit more and the knives should start to come out here beginning Tuesday at the next debate.

A poll released by CBS News now gives a clear picture of who is starting to gain ground just a bit over 3 months until the Iowa caucuses.

From CBS News

Early-state Democratic voters say President Trump’s allegations against Joe Biden have not affected their views of Biden and largely think they aren’t true. Even so, it’s Elizabeth Warren who continues to draw support from Democrats. She has extended the aggregate lead she had in this poll last month across the 18 early primary and caucus states.

As for individual states, she has increased her lead over the pack in New Hampshire and pulled even with Biden in Iowa. And Warren leads in our delegate model over Biden, too, demonstrating that she’s competitive in many regions.

Now, for some reason, I’m not exactly buying that people are not worried about Joe Biden and the pounding that Trump has laid on him and his son Hunter. If this were not a concern, then Hunter doesn’t resign from his cushy board position like he did yesterday [READ] WHERE’S HUNTER? He Just Quit His Sweet Gig On The Board Of A Chinese Company. Of course, it doesn’t help that Biden has an appearance once every two weeks and seems a bit lethargic. He seems bored with this and like he is only running because he wants to get out of the house for a spell.

Even though Bernie had an impressive 3rd quarter in fundraising, his campaign is in its final spin. The heart attack is a serious thing and that will play in the back of everyone’s mind, even if they say it does not.

The only place where Biden still has any sort of lead is in South Carolina where he leads 43% to Warren’s 18%. This is the state to watch over the next 4 weeks to see if Warren starts to gain on him. If she does and if she doesn’t get derailed, then it will look like she will be able to secure the nomination sooner rather than later. This is what the DNC has been hoping for all along — someone to break out of the pack and take it early.

One last thing.

The poll says that most of the Democrats surveyed DID NOT think that impeachment was one of the top things to worry about. With all of the wall-to-wall coverage on this, I find that amazing. I would have thought that it would at LEAST make the top 3 things but evidently not.

Once again, back to CBS…

And an important backdrop to all this: for Democrats deciding how to vote in these states, a candidate’s position on impeachment is not the most important issue. In fact, it ranks far behind issues like health care, climate change, income inequality and guns. This echoes something Democratic voters have voiced since the summer: they have long told us they would rather hear candidates talk about beating Donald Trump in 2020 than about impeaching him.

Who would have thunk it?

So according to this, I predict that Elizabeth Warren will be the one this Tuesday with the BIG TARGET on her back. Let’s see how she handles it.

The Private Sector Is Yet Again Rushing to Save Us from Government

Westlake Legal Group government-ways-of-saving-money The Private Sector Is Yet Again Rushing to Save Us from Government wireless Wired Web Search washington D.C. Technology technolgy Section 230 satellite progressives Privacy Politics Policy News network neutrality Net Neutrality law Internet of Things Internet Government Global Warming Front Page Stories Front Page Foreign Policy Economy Business & Economy 5g 4G

What Did Government Use for Light Before Candles? Electricity

 

The answer to everything even remotely policy-related – is less government.

Because the original sin of everything even remotely policy-related – is too much government.

Want to solve our health care “crisis” – ???  Undo the original government sins.

After World War II – taxes were kept at during-WW II levels.  So in an end run around this too much government – the private sector started offering employees untaxed “benefits”…including health insurance.

Post-WW II set up a bizarre, antithetical-to-Reality system…where health insurance isn’t tied to the person – it’s tied to the person’s employer.  Which is inherently very stupid.

Post-WW II set up a bizarre, antithetical-to-Reality system…where health insurance stopped being a catastrophic policy, and started paying for EVERY encounter with a health care provider.

Car insurance pays when you wrap your car around a tree.  Imagine how stupid and expensive it would be – if they were paying for everything up to and including oil changes and windshield wipers.

Post-WW II also set up a bizarre, antithetical-to-Reality third-party-payer system.  The doctor and patient are in the room negotiating services and terms – the guy picking up the tab is not.

Which guarantees skyrocketing prices and costs.  Because human nature.

A buyer wants to buy as much as he can.

A seller wants to sell as much as he can – for as much as he can.

The check and balance upon these billions of daily commercial exchanges – is the buyer’s wallet.

The buyer wants to conserve his coin – so he perpetually looks for the best deals.

The seller wants to sell – so he and the buyer negotiate mutually agreeable deals.

If the guy picking up the tab isn’t involved in the process – price is no object.  And things quickly get REALLY crazy.

Seven decades of third-party-payer health insurance later – things have become really, REALLY crazy.

You want more government further screwing up health care?  There’s plenty, you know.

Medicare, for instance.  You know, the third-party-payer government health care plan for senior citizens.

Medicare is currently at least $40 trillion short.

Medicare doesn’t actually completely cover seniors – so the private sector has to backstop the government.  Medigap, anyone?

And Medicare actually pays medical providers ridiculously low rates for medical goods and services.  So since Medicare’s inception – medical providers have been price-shifting to the private sector.  Charging the private sector much, MUCH more – to subsidize the government.

Steadfastly impervious to facts, Leftists everywhere want to murder private health insurance – and force feed us all into Medicare’s bankrupt, gaping maw.  Medicare for All – is medical care for none.

The solution to this titanic government-caused mess – is less government.  Not more – less.

Allow people to purchase policies in any of the fifty states.

Equalize the government’s treatment of individual-purchased and employer-provided insurance.

And begin to roll back the government’s third-party-payer involvement in…everything.

Another area where government keeps rigidly insisting on inserting itself – is the Internet.

The Internet is perhaps the most successful endeavor in human history.  Nothing has grown bigger, better and faster.

The federal government did in fact create the Internet.  And for decades, it just sat there – inert…gathering dust.

Until the 1990s.  When the government privatized the Internet.  At which point – KABOOM.

United States’ private Internet Service Providers (ISPs) spent the next quarter century investing $1+ trillion dollars building the networks.  Taking us from 14k dial-up snail speeds – to multiple gigabyte hyper speeds.

Which paved the way for millions of other companies to invest trillions of additional dollars creating and developing…everything we know on the Web.  And a whole lot of stuff we don’t.  (It’s a BIG Internet.)

Government controlling the Internet – kept it an unknown, unused bit of nothing.  For decades.

The private sector handling the Internet – created the free speech-free market Xanadu we all know and love today.

Steadfastly impervious to facts, Leftists everywhere want to roll back this titanic private sector success – and revert to a government-controlled Internet.

They want to re-impose the very ridiculous Network Neutrality.  Which an avowed Marxist describes thus:

“At the moment, the battle over network neutrality is not to completely eliminate the telephone and cable companies. We are not at that point yet. But the ultimate goal is to get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control.”

How very Venezuela of them.

To “get rid of the media capitalists in the phone and cable companies and to divest them from control” – you need government Internet as a replacement.

Which Leftists have already long been funding.  How’s that been going?  Remarkably like government health care.

Broadband Boondoggles: A Map of Failed Taxpayer-Funded Networks:

“For decades, local governments have made promises of faster and cheaper broadband networks.

“Unfortunately, these municipal networks often don’t deliver or fail, leaving taxpayers to foot the bill.

“Explore the map to learn about the massive debt, waste and broken promises left behind by these failed government networks.”

One of the angles Leftists attempt to work in defense of their government Internet efforts – is the lack of Internet access in America’s rural areas.

For those of you who are government school victims – the United States is a VERY large place.  Reaching the US’s very many uber-rural areas with uber-fast Internet – ain’t easy.

That being said, this alleged problem – is already exceedingly overblown:

“(T)he (Federal Communications Commission) FCC still bizarrely only counts a hardline (terrestrial fixed) Internet connection as a connection.  Meaning buried cables criss-crossing America – all the way into your abode.

“But nearly everyone in America has a 4G (Fourth Generation) wireless smartphone. On which you can seamlessly stream High Definition (HD) video – the most bandwidth intensive thing currently to do on the Internet.  (And we’re but a few years away from exponentially-faster-5G).

“And then there is Satellite Internet – for the remaining very few who are bereft of both wired and cellular wireless.

“And those…speeds that serve as the FCC minimum?  They are WAY faster than 98+% of Americans currently need.

“The Truth About Faster Internet: It’s Not Worth It:

“‘Typical U.S. households don’t use most of their bandwidth while streaming and get marginal gains from upgrading speeds.’

“So even while streaming High Definition (HD) video – the most bandwidth intensive thing currently to do on the Internet – ‘typical U.S. households don’t use most of their bandwidth.’

“In other words – just about everyone in America has more-than-sufficient access to the Internet.”

As just mentioned, government has for decades been trying to replicate private ISPs.  And as just mentioned – has been perpetually, miserably failing.

And wait: Here come’s the private sector – yet again riding to the government’s rescue.  And all the rest of us too.  Via the aforementioned 5G wireless network:

“(T)he 5G wireless network – is going to blow the doors off of even the existing, massive private sector success.

“And thereby blow an even larger hole in the Left’s demands for government Internet.

“How 5G Will Solve Rural Broadband:

“‘Starting with advanced versions of 4G LTE and then continuing with 5G, wireless technologies will not only displace many wireline endpoints in dense population areas, but also in low population density areas, including rural areas….

“‘The cost advantage of wireless connections is overwhelming.

“‘A spokesperson for the Wireless ISP Association (WISPA) estimates that a wireless connection to a rural endpoint costs one-fifth to one-tenth of a wireline connection….

“Translation from Tech-to-English:

“The Left’s idea to get into the government into the broadband business – is currently very stupid and dishonest.

“Thanks to the private sector.

“And the Left’s idea to get the government into the broadband business – is about to get exponentially stupider and more dishonest.

“Thanks to the private sector.”

Because service to every single nook and cranny of the United States – is about to get massively faster wireless Internet service.

Thanks to the private sector.

Yet again saving us from government.

And yet again saving government from itself.

Rep. Jim Jordan to the MSM: Why Won’t You Ask Democrats These Important Impeachment Questions?

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) has been one of the leading Republican voices speaking out against the deceptive tactics House Intel Chair Adam Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have been using to conduct the secretive “impeachment inquiry” currently underway in Washington, D.C.

Just last week, Jordan wrote an op/ed that was published in the USA Today slamming Democrats for their use of impeachment as a tool to oust someone from office over political disagreements. He also condemned what he called the “secrecy” of their process.

Here’s some of what he wrote:

Democrats put the nation through three years of the “Russia collusion” hoax, only for those allegations to completely unravel. Democrats have spent the past 10 months embarking on a series of partisan fishing expeditions, all in a concerted effort to take down a duly elected president. Now Democrats are accusing President Trump of orchestrating a quid pro quo to pressure the Ukrainian government.
[…]
When we began to interview people with firsthand knowledge, the Democrats’ narrative fell apart. Ambassador Kurt Volker, the U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, was very clear in his testimony last week: He was aware of no quid pro quo, and the Ukrainian government never raised concerns about a quid pro quo. He testified that the U.S. officials were working at all times in the best interests of the United States and for the success and security of Ukraine.
[…]
President Trump displayed unprecedented transparency by releasing a transcript of his call with a foreign leader. However, the Democrats’ impeachment push is shrouded in secrecy. Americans deserve more. Americans deserve to know exactly how Democrats are misusing their authority to undo the results of the 2016 election.

Jordan, who is the ranking member on the House Oversight and Reform Committee, has continued to bang this drum, and over the weekend he tweeted out a number of questions directed towards Pelosi and Schiff. At the end of his rant, he asked the media why they weren’t asking them these same questions.

Indeed. Why won’t they?

Jordan asked a total of 18 questions. You can read them all in sequence by clicking here.

Climate Protester Climbs on Top of an Airplane and Does Not Help the Cause.

You have to hand it to these climate protestors: They pull these stunts that they think will bring attention to their cause (they do) and also bring sympathy (they DO NOT) and gain them recruits.

Nope.

A really fun group called Extinction Rebellion has been staging protests in England and specifically around London. Last week, they decided to gum up the airport and try to delay people from getting to and from the terminals to make a point. One individual even decided to climb on top of an airplane to see if he could hold on at around 500 MPH at 33,000 feet.

According to The Guardian

More than 1,100 people have been arrested since the start of Extinction Rebellion’s protests this week in London, including 50 who were detained at City airport on Thursday.

Those arrested at the airport included James Brown, a partially-sighted former Paralympian who climbed on top of a British Airways aircraft, while another man, who boarded a flight to Dublin and stood up to speak about the effects of the climate crisis, was held for failing to comply with the orders of a captain. On Thursday night the Metropolitan police said there had been 1,112 arrests in
connection with the protests across London.

While the bulk of activists failed to penetrate security and get inside airport terminals, as they had hoped, protests were staged at the airport’s Docklands Light Railway station, outside its main entrance and on roads leading to the site.

Personally, I think if they want to climb on top of an airplane for a protest, let them. Have the crew inside the cabin take bets to see how long this Einstein can hold on and then pay off in free drinks to the winner.

Whatever happened to dying for the cause, lads?

Unfortunately, now that Greta Thunberg has lost the Nobel Peace Prize and the Oscar nominations have not yet come out, these protests are likely to continue, being as these folks ACTUALLY think the world is ending in 12 years.

As I pointed out in my article yesterday here at Red State [READ] CLIMATE FLASHBACK: In 1978 Mr. Spock Told Us Another Ice Age Would Be Here By Now, if Mr. Spock got this wrong 40 years ago, you most likely got it wrong also.

Let’s face it — if you really thought the world was ending you would stop paying off your student loans, stop working and probably just hang out at a park drinking booze and coming up with whacky ideas like sitting on top of a plane.

Oh crap.

Nevermind.

The Democratic Party has really done Joe Biden a disservice.

As 2020 looms and their chances of success remain seriously dubious, rather than focusing on providing someone America would want to elect, they’re stuck in Revolt mode.

Apparently distracted by anti-Trump furor, those across the aisle are still trying to undo 2016.

If they continue, they’ll revolutionize themselves all the way to a second November loss.

This seems obvious.

Evidently, it ain’t.

And as they attempt a dragging of Trump over Ukraine, they’re slogging poor Joe Biden through the mud.

And there go his chances of a win.

But is there more to it? Kellyanne Conway thinks so, as she explained to Fox News show Sunday Morning Futures.

Kellyanne makes quite the interesting observation: Despite Joe’s fantastic cred as the former Vice President of the United States, due to the Dems’ impeachment mania, America now sees Biden, not as a man with a gold star on his CV, but rather, as Hunter Biden’s father.

So goodbye, resume.

As reported by Bloomberg, “[H]unter Biden is stepping down from the board of a Chinese-backed private equity company and promising to forgo all foreign work if his father is elected president.”

But to Kellyanne, he’s tardy to the max — it’s something he “should have done…quite a while ago.”

Kelly asked:

“Why isn’t Biden on top of the polls, just by saying, ‘I’m going to bring us back to the Obama years?’ Let’s keep Biden in there, because Biden made a huge mistake.”

And here’s the bottom line:

“He’s now seen in the news as Hunter Biden’s father, not as Barack Obama’s vice president.”

Man — Obama’s the Dems’ most exalted leader, and here’s his Number 2 ready to lay down some serious electoral wizardry. But he’s being cut off at the knees.

And Donald Trump doesn’t mind helping:

Kelly had another question:

“Where is President Obama? Why isn’t he out there supporting the man who served as his vice president for eight years?”

Where, indeed.

Former Vice President Joe’s turning into Joe Schmo.

And Trump’s set to win the White House onceschmo.

Say What? Bernie Sanders Says Elizabeth Warren Is a Capitalist As a Diss

Bernis is back.

Kinda.

He is READY TO RUMBLE.

Maybe.

Sanders in a new interview with ABC’s Jon Karl says that the big difference between him and his female counterpart who is also white, rich and boring is that she is…..GASP…A CAPITALIST.

From The Hill

In an interview airing Sunday with ABC’s Jon Karl, Sanders struck a stronger tone in distancing himself from Warren’s views on economic policy than he has in previous months, and again asserted that he was the strongest candidate to take on entrenched, powerful corporations and special interest groups in Washington.

“There are differences between Elizabeth and myself,” Sanders said, referring to Warren. “Elizabeth, I think, as you know, has said that she is a capitalist through her bones. I’m not.”

Ohhhhh can you feel the BERRRRRNNNNNNNNNNNN?

How pathetic.

In case you had forgotten Bernie while you have been taking it easy since the ticker attack, you have a net worth of around 2.5 to 3 million dollars according to Business Insider and Warren is worth around 10 million. So she is a better capitalist than you. et you still made money selling books from a company that makes big profits selling books.

Color thy hypocrisy green. As in money.

This is obviously an attempt to stem the inevitable bleed off of his support after his recent health episode. When a 78-year-old guy has any sort of heart event they shut them down for months. Running for President is not the shutdown type of activity that most doctors would recommend.

So he goes after Liz, the New York Times goes after Biden and hopefully by the time Iowa and New Hampshire come around he is strong enough to mimic Biden’s campaign schedule which is one or two appearances a week. Maybe.

This will not work and the time is ticking before he will have to drop out. I do appreciate the effort though.

One last thing.

Capitalism is the most perfect of all the imperfect systems of economics. That the democratic party has a candidate that says this as a diss and he is not roundly booed shows that the fringe left in this country is becoming more delusional by the day. I know that might infuriate at some of you while you are reading this in a Starbucks on your i phone 11 but I promise you that you will survive.

Unlike Bernie’s campaign.

Viva la CAPITALISM!!!

CLIMATE FLASHBACK: In 1978 Mr. Spock Told Us Another Ice Age Would Be Here By Now.

LIVE LONG AND FREEZE

I love Star Trek. The whole notion that we survive the mess we see the world in now and actually get to go for drinks on the moon and take a quick spin around Jupiter for fun is just a warm and fuzzy concept.

The show became part of our cultural DNA and the stars of the show went out to successful careers in other areas. Leonard Nimoy A.K.A. Mr. Spock was one of these Trek stars that found other things to do while not on the bridge of the Enterprise.

Nimoy hosted a fantastic show called “In Search Of…from 1978 until 1982 and it covered a wide range of topics that were explored. Material such as, is there a bigfoot, UFO’s and the lost city of Atlantis were some of its episodes.

They also in May of 1978 covered something according to their IMDb page called “In Search Of… The Coming Ice Age”. Of course, with all the interest of climate change and the 1.5-degree shift of getting warmer and all of us dying in less than 12 years ( Not my words ask A.O.C.  Ocasio-Cortez says the world will end in 12 years. She is absolutely right.) I was absolutely intrigued.

Below is a video clip from that show.

Below I have taken some short clips that Nimoy says here to add my stellar commentary.

The data shows that the average temperatures in the Arctic have fallen dramatically over the last 30 years. In most locations, the drop has been 2 degrees centigrade.

According to NOAA we are up almost 1.42 F since 2000. I’m gonna call this a draw.

The whole Northern hemisphere has grown steadily cooler.

Check the NOAA link above. I guess we are getting warmer. Which is really nice for Michigan in Feb.

If we are unprepared for the next advance ( Ice Age) the result could be hunger and death on a scale unprecedented in all of history.

Whether it is massive ice sheets rolling our way or Florida flooding out, it’s always doom and gloom with these people. How about the world comes together like in the movie Independence Day and either does a huge BBQ or use the ice for drinks. CMON PEOPLE.

What scientists are telling us now is the threat of an ice age is not as remote as they once thought.

Well, scientists are telling us something different now. Now I’m not gonna blame them here. They get stuff wrong like this all the time.

During the lifetime of our grandchildren, arctic cold and perpetual snow could turn most of the inhabitable portions of our planet into a polar desert.

Nimoy has 5 grandchildren and from what the scientists are telling us is that we will be all fried before frozen. I’m not sure which one is worse actually.

What does this all mean?

That 41 years ago a show on network television with a beloved actor who played a character that relied on “logic,” scared the crap out of a 9-year-old Duke, making me think the ice was going to kill my family and I.

They were not just wrong but fabulously wrong.

Now those that believe the current dire warnings will say the technology is better, the computer models are more accurate and we have learned so much since 1978.

Well, how about if we do this as a test. Get the current weather reports you do EXACTLY RIGHT for 30 days, then we can chat about making predictions 40 years or 12 years maybe even just 30 months into the future.

Back in 1978, the climate alarmists used an actor who played a Vulcan ( who is not supposed to lie) as a messenger to get people ginned up about impending doom. In 2019 they used a 16-year Lil kid to do the same thing. They were wrong in 1978 and I’m willing to bet Al Gores billions that he made on this fantasy that they are wrong now also.

Predicting the weather, stocks or what women are thinking when they are really mad is a dangerous proposition. Doing any one of these things is just…

Illogical.

P.S. Kirk is the best Captain E-V-E-R.
