We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

The Climate Cons
Biden’s lunatic bid to pay ‘poor nations’ for ‘climate reparations’
Why is America provoking China?
A New Age of American Politics - It’s time to hit ballot harvesting hard or die trying.
Not Even Ron DeSantis Can Stop Donald J. Trump for President. No one is going to stop President Trump when no one could stop candidate Trump.

The only thing Trump has to fear is Trump himself. Which he may do.
"Since the mass vaccinations began, a new phenomenon is being observed in every country of the world: countless perfectly healthy people die suddenly. Large numbers of sports athletes, airplane pilots, bus drivers, celebrities, media personalities... suddenly collapse, many on camera! A quick internet search reveals millions of pages dedicated to this occurrence.This shocking film shows how countless people worldwide have died suddenly after receiving the injections. What is being found in their veins is pure horror..."
There is a correlation between this and defund the police. You might think that "defund the police" simply means "defund the police" but it is more corrupt than that. What it means is take the funding that goes to the police and let me control where it goes while siphoning off some for the big guy. It is a grift far more than it is a political or activist statement.
And that is what the climate change grift is. It is a multi-trillion dollar grift that has the potential to go on for decades if they can just keep up the grift. That is why you must be silenced if you point it out or say anything. Further this grift could change the world forever and it will likely result in the destruction of the U.S. and the dominance of China for decades, perhaps centuries. But for the grifters none of this matters and in fact most of them have been anti-American all their lives and would welcome our demise.
What this grift also shows is the abject ignorance of people who eagerly jump at the chance to become useful idiots. Many/most of the activists are actually ignorant of the data and the facts and are merely pawns in the hands of those running this grift. It is just possible that America and the West deserve to be collapsed because we have become so ignorant and passive. Oh well! It was a good run while it lasted.
The Climate Cons . . . “The linear warming trend since January 1979 now stands at +0.13 C/decade.” — Spencer
Glad that's settled. UAH measures the lower troposphere, about the lower 12 km of atmosphere. Surface warming is about +0.17 C/decade, and the rate is expected to increase, depending on human efforts to reduce emissions.
Thank you for proving my two points correct: 1. You aren't allowed to talk about the grift and you will be "corrected" for speaking out. 2. Many/most of the activists are actually ignorant of the data and the facts and are merely pawns in the hands of those running this grift.
Around 1850 we exited a mini ice age which neither the mini ice age nor the reversal to a warming trend was caused by SUVs or burning fossil fuel. The inevitable result of ending an ice age would be, surprise!, a warming trend. So not surprisingly we are in a warming trend (more or less since it fluctuates with weather trends super imposed over it) and it has warmed a little over 1 degree C since then. This is in spite of scientists for the last 160 years predicting about 2.2 degrees C over that period.
The climate did indeed warm. What else could it have done after ending a cooling period? The climate did indeed "change". It has been changing for the last 4 + billion years. If you do not understand that and still think humans are at fault than YOU are the problem.
Anon: 1. You aren't allowed to talk about the grift and you will be "corrected" for speaking out.
You certainly can talk about purported grift; however, if you base your argument on falsehoods, then your conclusion will be unfounded.
Anon: 2. Many/most of the activists are actually ignorant of the data and the facts and are merely pawns in the hands of those running this grift.
Notably, you ignored the point about the data.
Anon: The inevitable result of ending an ice age would be, surprise!, a warming trend. . . The climate did indeed warm. What else could it have done after ending a cooling period?
That's not an argument, but a tautology. The cool period ended. Why? Because it warmed. Why did it warm? Because the cool period ended. In any case, given only natural influences on climate, the Earth would be in a slight cooling trend, rather than the distinct warming trend that is actually observed.

Gosh! What will those crazy climate scientists come up with next?!
Lame arguments already proven to be specious.
Gosh! What will those crazy climate scientists come up with next?!
Branded “Climategate” by British columnist James Delingpole, the emails provided insight into practices that range from bad professionalism to fraudulent science. Bias, data manipulation, dodging freedom of information requests, and efforts to subvert the peer-review process were uncovered.
No one is going to stop Trump?
This just in from the CPUSA, DOJ and Dominion:LMFAO!
BTW-The "war crimes" expert special prosecutor's wife is a mega donor to Brandon.
And WAR is what they consider themselves to be in, one for the survival of all of the grifts and Fundamental Transformation into Weimar Zimbabwe.
You have to burn it all down in order to build the CCCP back better.
China should have received pushback on its IP theft and mercantile industrial policies a long time ago. But as long as global corporations headquartered in the USA could profit from cheap labour and low environmental standards, and American global finance from arranging investment funding and trade there was probably too much lobbyist pushback to take any action. Plus the Chinese have clearly figured out that American politicians can be bought cheaply.
Trump gave some serious pushback to the Chinese and they did not like it. I'm surprised that Bidens handlers are continuing that policy. I'd guess reasons why they have soured on China are Chinas determination to avoid 1> cultural enrichment by hollywood, and 2> making Chinese megacorporations vulnerable to take-over in the global finance markets through IPOs in wallstreet.
At least the population in the USA and Europe has gotten smarter. Nodoby seems in a hurry to enlist for a war in Ukraine or Taiwan "promise to be home by Christmass"
Climate reparations, how cute is that. Evidently man has made global warming, er, the climate change, or whatever else needs to be re-labeled possible in order to keep the Industrial Climate Complex chugging along. All those tiny countries putting their hands in the pockets of American taxpayers; you know the left won't do anything about it, so let's see if the incoming Republican House majority will do anything to stop it.
Get us out of the UN and NATO; they're both rotting corpses the US is tied to.

"Supreme Court orders Trump's tax returns to be turned over to House Democrats"
I think this is a precedent! So after Jan 1st the Republicans should ask for Bidens and Pelosi's tax returns.
JustMe: So after Jan 1st the Republicans should ask for Bidens and Pelosi's tax returns.
Well, if Republicans ever figure out how to use the internet, they don’t have to even ask. The Biden’s have publicly released their tax returns for the last 24 years. Here is their latest return:
Congress has the statutory power to look at any return, as long as they have a legislative purpose, but individual returns can’t generally be publicly released. By statute, the President is subject to an automatic tax audit, and Congress says they want to review the audit process.
Since Nixon, presidents have always released their tax returns—Trump excepted—because of the importance to the public perception of the office.
"Climate reparations" means taking money from largely White nations and giving it to nations that aren't.
