Just a few things from this week. First, Paul Manafort has filed a suit challenging Mueller’s authority to prosecute him for things long predating the Trump campaign. The suit rightly points out as has been discussed here previously that Rosenstein didn’t comply with the relevant DOJ regs and that Mueller was given an illegal and in my opinion unconstitutional mandate. Let’s not forget that the prosecutorial power is vested in the executive branch and absent specific circumstances not present here cannot be exercised by someone outside the DOJ. Let’s hope that Manafort prevails and the string of unrestrained special prosecutors is brought to an end. As I have said before, Mueller should be limited to the period between Trump entering the race and the election. His indictments to date have nothing to do with Trump-Russian collusion.
The other thing I wanted to mention is that I am beginning to wonder what Geraldo Rivera’s connection is to the Clintons. While he has been saying all week that Trump has done a good job and has accomplished much, every time the subject of Hillary’s emails or the Clinton slush fund come up he literally trips over himself claiming that that’s all been investigated and debunked and we should move on. To be clear, they have never been investigated legitimately and are now being investigated by DOJ and may finally lead to justice. Geraldo’s actions lead me to wonder what emails between him and some Clinton crony or Hillary herself were on that bathroom server.
Meant to do this last week, but I’m lazy. Anyway did you see Tucker Carlson’s interview with the wacko feminist professor claiming eating meat is responsible for patriarchy or something. Now the thing I want to point out is not the utter nonsense of her position but rather where her “incredibly brilliant” research was published. If memory serves me correctly, it was in something called the Journal of Feminist Geography. Need to know why higher education in this country is going to hell? That ought to be enough right there.
First, Happy New Year to all!
Now for a bit of MSM hypocrisy. My last post on global warming turned out to be somewhat similar to a Trump tweet at about the same time. Predictably, the MSM fell for his trolling them and AP and others quickly and correctly pointed out that Trump didn’t differentiate between weather and climate and this cold snap is just weather.
How come when there are tornadoes or hurricanes or wildfires, they always say it’s climate change, but when Trump points out something that doesn’t fit their religion — and that’s what climate change is — it’s just weather.
Now the other bullshit thing to come out recently from this bunch of frauds and one of it’s chief prophets, James Hansen, is a claim that the nonexistent global warming may lead to a little ice age in the near future. Hansen predicted back in 1988, I believe, that New York City would be under water by now. Oops! Now the notion that the heating up of the Earth will cause an ice age is just CYA by this loser who hasn’t been right on just about anything.
If you have followed my rants, then you are aware that it’s been fairly clearly shown that the Sun is really the driving force for the heating and cooling of our planet, in spite of the fact that the computer models used by these false prophets assign zero influence to the Sun. The importance of this is because we are about to enter a period of low solar activity and real scientists have indicated that this lower activity will lead to another little ice age beginning around 2030. How convenient that gets everything wrong Hansen would recognize that the real scientists are getting it right on the direction the temperatures are heading and then utter some mumbo jumbo nonsense to claim global warming will result in an ice age. I guess he needs to get some predictions right even if it’s for the wrong reason.
