Looking into the maw of the beast

MSNBC political analyst Elise Jordan:

“And I think it’s unfortunate that we are designing — that we are designing public policy in a way that, you know, comes down to how you voted in an election,”

I think it’s unfortunate that we live in a democratic Republic where “those people” can vote.

There, fixed that for her.

No, really

The WaPo says, The electoral college is thwarting our ability to battle global warming

[T]he electoral college will have a lasting legacy on all of our lives through climate change. The combination of two administrations headed by presidents who lost the popular vote has and will slow our progress down, and that delay contributes to an ever worsening global climate problem.

You needn’t bother to RTWT.

Oh, No Canada!

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the death of the monster Fidel Castro:

“It is with deep sorrow that I learned today of the death of Cuba’s longest serving President.

“Fidel Castro was a larger than life leader who served his people for almost half a century. A legendary revolutionary and orator, Mr. Castro made significant improvements to the education and healthcare of his island nation.

“While a controversial figure, both Mr. Castro’s supporters and detractors recognized his tremendous dedication and love for the Cuban people who had a deep and lasting affection for “el Comandante”.

“I know my father was very proud to call him a friend and I had the opportunity to meet Fidel when my father passed away. It was also a real honour to meet his three sons and his brother President Raúl Castro during my recent visit to Cuba.

“On behalf of all Canadians, Sophie and I offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of Mr. Castro. We join the people of Cuba today in mourning the loss of this remarkable leader.”

Real women know their place

“When you’re young, you’re thinking, “Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie.”
-Feminist superhero Gloria Steinem, on why young women aren’t flocking to Mrs. Bill.

I see a bumper sticker: Horny co-eds for Bernie!

“And just remember — there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”
-Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, at a Mrs. Bill’s campaign event.

Ms. Albright should know.

“Sen. Sanders is the only person who I think would characterize me, a woman running to be the first woman president, as exemplifying the establishment.”
-Mrs. Bill on why she can’t possibly be “establishment:” Because she has a vagina.

Mrs. Bill? Bernie is far from the only one, or Gloria Steinem wouldn’t have been sticking her foot in her mouth up to the knee.

“Sometimes when a woman speaks out, some people think it’s shouting.”
-Mrs. Bill on her calm demeanor involving gun control.

Sometimes, when a woman screeches for years on a topic, she calls it speaking out.

“Bernie is building a movement, we’re told (with little evidence of lasting organization, by the way), but it’s a movement whose loudest advocates are entitled young men who heap the vilest abuse on women who don’t deign to join it.”
-Joan Walsh, writing at The Nation in Jan 2016

It’s a movement lasting a bit too long for Mrs. Bill’s comfort.

“First of all, Clinton only won the women’s vote narrowly in 2008, besting Barack Obama by just 2 percent…

The drop in Clinton’s support among women also makes sense given that we know women don’t merely support female candidates just because they’re women.”
-Joan Walsh (same one), writing at Salon in Sep 2015

No, they support female candidates solely because of the candidate’s sex because they’re being bullied by feminist SJW hacks who can’t remember what they write after a few months.

Ecclesiastic Economics

Global bishops call for ‘complete decarbonisation’ by 2050

Bishops launched a global appeal Monday for a break-through at upcoming Paris climate talks, including a “complete decarbonisation” of the world’s economy and more help for poor countries battling the effects of climate change.

They propose eliminating 95% of reliable energy in 35 years.

What we will depend on as the basis for generating the wealth needed to help poor countries during, and after, the transition is left to God. In this scenario, absent a Miracle, poor countries will be grateful the Bishops and the green fantasists kept them poor. They’ll fare an order of magnitude better than will developed economies.

The Bishops’ understanding of economics fits right in with Bernie Sanders’. He should hire them as spiritual advisors. He does need a Miracle.

The bishops said any agreement “should limit global temperature increases to avoid catastrophic climatic impacts, especially on the most vulnerable communities…

Those responsible for climate change have responsibilities to assist the most vulnerable in adapting and managing loss and damage and to share the necessary technology and knowhow,” they said in a statement.

They’re hiring some bureaucrats to do God’s work: An “agreement” is going to “limit global temperature increases.” The religious fervor is settled.

This ritual invocation has already been attempted, unsuccessfully, by an individual vastly more charismatic and more widely viewed as messianic than these Bishops: “This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.

Beyond all this, there’s this other carbon based energy thing called wood. Sans miracle, that’s what the survivors in what used to be known as developed countries will be burning when they are not occupied shoveling horse manure from the decaying streets. They’ll care nothing for poor countries, nor for the Bishops mistaken humanist pieties.

Theoretically, robbing Peter to pay Paul can only work if Peter has something left to rob. There are always Miracles, though.

Inside the Projection Booth

Fox News Eats Its Own
There is much revealed here.

Politico assumes Fox News is nakedly partisan, then proceeds to demonstrate that Fox isn’t – by comparing it to the ideologically unhinged MSNBC.

Politico thinks asking hard questions isn’t what journalists are supposed to do.

Politico thinks it’s amusing that GOP candidates are being asked hard questions, never mentioning that Hillary doesn’t even take questions.

Politico implies all Republicans look bad when asked anything remotely tough. Apparently, they haven’t seen Carly Fiorna mincing Andrea Mitchell’s preferred narrative.

This is called “projection.” Bias is what they do, so they think everyone else does.
