Podesta is WRONG on CO2 and Population Growth

Filed under: Politics, Science — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 4:56 AM (04:56)

On 23 January 2018, the Washington Post ran a rather silly op-ed piece by John Podesta and Timothy E. Wirth titled Women’s rights issues are climate change issues.

Just when you think that the willful insanity of “intersectionality”[1] hasn’t gone far enough, something like this comes along.

In that article, they made the following assertion —

Recent research has reinforced the understanding of the benefits of helping families plan the timing, spacing and number of their children. Brown University researchers showed that slowing population growth can enhance economic outcomes and reduce emissions simultaneously.

To summarize the article, Podesta and Wirth say that slowing population growth will stop or slown down climate change, thus leading to better lives for all, and that’s why the dams holding back the rivers of public money must be torn down.

Still, Podesta and Wirth have it backwards — as per capita wealth and standard of living improve, population growth slows down.

This has been known since the 1990s.

If he’s truly concerned about this, I’m sure they’ll be willing to lead the way on reducing the population and controlling carbon dioxide emissions.

In particular, they can volunteer to stop exhaling so much of the carbon dioxide they think of as a “poison.” Both Podesta and Wirth have already done their bit of pissing in the gene pool, so we’ll have to settle for half a loaf here.

In fact, it seems that while carbon dioxide doesn’t seem to be the planet-killing greenhouse gas that the eco-fascists claim it is, it IS responsible for increased plant growth around the world. That’s not just me spouting off the top of my head here, that’s from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)[2] — one of the “go-to” governmental agencies on the climate-change / global warming “issue,” per the eco-fascists themselves.

As for the population “issue,” I’ve already noted that Podesta and Wirth have done their “damage” (I don’t know what their kids are like, so the quotation marks might be unnecessary), but they still, rather hypocritically in my opinion, insist that OTHER PEOPLE’S lives be publicly managed.

See “The Stork, by Nina Haley (embedded below) for an example of this sort of thinking —

Notice how after the stork-dropped bundles land on the ground, there’s an explosion, followed by babies, houses, and SUVs?

Take a closer look at the instances of when there’s multiple storks flying in formation. Don’t they look something like this?

That’s the U.S. Army Air Corps’ 384th Bomb Group en route to their target during World War II.

How about this one?

Didn’t the storks dropping baby bundles in Haley’s video clip look a bit like those B-17s dropping ordnance?

Basically, the most realistic way to describe the mindset of the population limiters and regulators is the term antihumanist[3] — “humans are basically bad, thus they need to be limited and controlled.”

In conclusion, all I need is mailing addresses for Podesta and Wirth. That way, I’ll know where to send the plastic bags, so that they can lead by example on these “issues.”

Tim Keller’s Mayoral Theme Song?

That song, of course, should be “Breaking The Law” by Judas Priest.

But hey, “he acted in good faith” so it doesn’t really matter, does it?

The “Keller Defense”

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 7:17 AM (07:17)

People — pardon me, journalists and politicians — have often accused me of believing that I’m above the law. And yet, who isn’t? Everywhere you prod it, even with the shortest stick, the established system isn’t simply corrupt, it’s unequivocally putrsecent. The law is created by demonstrable criminals, enforced by demonstrable criminals, interpreted by demonstrable criminals, all for demonstrably criminal purposes. Of course I’m above the law. And so are you.
— William Wilde Curringer, in Pallas by L. Neil Smith, p. 301 [see here also]

On Monday, 13 November 2017, the Albuquerque Journal ran an article by Journal Staff Writer Martin Salazar titled Board finds Keller violated ethics code

That was the eleventh-hour decision made Monday by the city’s Board of Ethics & Campaign Practices, which found that mayoral candidate and state Auditor Tim Keller violated the City Charter’s Elections Code and the Open and Ethical Elections Code.

But the board opted not to issue a reprimand or a fine in the case, determining that Keller “acted in good faith and did not intend to violate” the rules.

Naturally, Keller denies any deliberate intent to violate the law —

“Though our opponents have used trumped up terms like dishonest, ‘money laundering’ and ‘cash under the table,’ those assertions were always baseless and the board’s ruling confirmed that today,” Keller said in a statement. “That came out loud and clear in today’s ruling which emphatically notes our good faith efforts.”

Maybe We The Great Unwashed can use this defense when accused of wrongdoing?

Let’s give that a try, hypothetically speaking, right here —

Traffic cop: Can I see your license, insurance, and registration?

Me (or you): What’s this all about, officer?

Traffic cop: You do realize that you were doing 50 in a 30?

Me (or you): But officer, I acted in good faith and did not intend to violate the rules . . . .

Maybe the IRS agent who shows up at your door to audit you or your business might be more sympathetic to you? Who wants to give that one a “good faith” run up the flagpole?

Apparently, Keller is considered to be above the law. Again, from the Journal

. . . . the board opted not to issue a reprimand or a fine in the case . . . .

So while We The Little People would be told “tough apples, pay the fine” upon citing mens rea for a similar “offense,” Keller gets to skate away scot free on this one.

Still, Keller isn’t completely out of the woods just yet —

Two other complaints against Keller are still pending, one that alleges that his campaign is illegally coordinating with a political action committee supporting him and another alleging that he broke the rules by failing to report the attorney fees he has incurred defending himself against the ethics complaints.

So is Albuquerque’s Board of Ethics & Campaign Practices going to invalidate the election results, considering that the winner cheated to get that victory?

Don’t hold your breath.

For decades, Democrats such as Keller have complained about “dirty campaigning” and “dirty money” as a reason that “more regulations are necessary.”

In that light, instead of saying “Thank you for a clear mandate,” he should apologize to Albuquerque’s voters and citizens for being a hypocrite, and then decline to actually take office.

Again, don’t hold your breath.

The least that the Board could do is require Keller to return the “public campaign money” (read welfare for politicians) that he received from the City coffers — all 362,000 of it.

If the Board doesn’t have the courage and integrity to do that, it’s a sham at best, and at worst it furthers corruption on the Albuquerque political scene. And the City’s “Open and Ethical Elections Code” won’t be worth the paper on which it’s printed.

Seriously, Keller should have to walk door to door, by himself, personally knocking on doors and asking residents for cash until he raises enough to pay back every penny of his “public campaign financing.”

Stupidity, Insanity and Evil in LP Land, Part the Nth

Filed under: Politics, Principles — Tags: , , , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 5:23 PM (17:23)

Recently, Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown (D-KKKalifornia) signed a bill making it no longer a felony to knowingly infect someone with HIV [1].

Whatever happened to government being the defender of our lives, liberties, properties and pursuits of happiness[2]?

Instead, government is becoming more and more a plunderer and pillager of that which it’s supposed to protect[3].

What particularly irks me about this is that there are some who call themselves “libertarians” who prefer to let the State (in this case, Moonbeam Brown) not only define their ethics and morality, but then insist that they’re the ones abiding by the Zero Aggression Principle

I guess this is what you get when you lower your standards and insist that “everyone is a Libertarian, they just don’t know it yet.”

[CTB-NM] Another Judge in Hot Water

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 8:18 AM (08:18)

It seems like we’re on a roll here with Clear the Bench New Mexico — already we’ve found a second judge in hot water.

This story comes to us from the Carlsbad Current-Argus.

It seems that Eddy County Magistrate Court Judge Henry Castaneda was playing on the internet using State-owned equipment (reading and forwarding
emails with “‘offensive, degrading, pornographic, racist and sexist’ content”), got busted, and now the NM Judicial Standards Commission wants him bounced from the bench.

Aren’t Democrats supposed to be the ones who are against racism, sexism, and Islamophobia?

If Castaneda had read and forwarded those emails on — get this radical, whacked-out concept — a PERSONALLY-OWNED computer instead of one
issued to him by the State of New Mexico, this most likely would not have happened.

[CTBNM] One Down, So Many Left to Go . . .

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 7:40 AM (07:40)

One down already, before CTBNM has raised any money, set up a real website, or anything!

While Judge Pamela Smith wasn’t even on the list of targeted judges, and it didn’t involve an election, as CTB-Colorado, which we’re hoping can serve as a template for CTB-NM, has been using, it still works — one judge using her position to screw people out of their stuff is now off the bench.

And what was she doing moonlighting at the Office of the Medical Investigator while serving as a judge? Isn’t that a bit of a conflict of interest?

Arson at Australian Bank, but At Least No One Was Shot

Filed under: Self-Defense — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 11:55 PM (23:55)

Yesterday, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation [ABC] reported that a court in Melbourne released a video from CCTV archives of an asylum seeker from Myanmar setting fire to a Springvale branch of the Commonwealth Bank.

Apparently, the guy in question, 22-year-old Nur Islam, allegedly got pissed off because he had to stand in line to make his withdrawl, so he left the bank, went to a nearby gas station, then returned to the bank with a 1/3-full gas can.

Mr. Islam then allegedly proceeds to dump a bit of the petrol on the bank’s floor by the customer entrance, and light it with a cigarette lighter.

It seems that Mr. Islam wasn’t a very good alleged arsonist, as he was reported to have been hospitalized with burns over sixty percent of his body.

Watch the video clip above again — the big fireball heading towards the camera is allegedly Mr. Islam, post-ignition.

But . . . but . . . Australia has #gunsense, so no one was shot by an unsanctioned person carrying a firearm, and that’s what’s important to the oppressives and regressives.

So while no one was shot by Mr. Islam, no one else was able to use a firearm (or any other sort of weapon, it seems) to stop Mr. Islam’s alleged amateurish attempt at arson.

[LTE – Alibi] Berry and ART — The Best and the Worst

Filed under: Media, Politics — Tags: , , , , — mikewb1971 @ 3:23 AM (03:23)

Speaking as a long-time reader of the Alibi and resident of Albuquerque, I find it rather hilarious that Richard Berry wins both the “Best City Politician to Get a Pat on the Back” and the “Best City Politician to Get a Punch in the Nose” awards in the 2017 Best of Burque poll.

(If it matters to anyone, I would have supported him for the latter prize.)

On top of that, Berry’s inane make-work destruction of Central Ave (some call it “ART” for “Albuquerque Rapid Transit”) won both awards for “Best Use of City Money” and “Best Waste of City Money” simultaneously.

How is something a good use of public funds and also a waste of those same funds?

Schizophrenic the body politic is here in Albuquerque, that’s for sure.

What this tells me is that Burquenos want their elephante blanco projects, just so long as those projects aren’t “too” disruptive of the daily ebb and flow, meaning that they aren’t personally inconvenienced by these boondoggles.

What people don’t seem to get too well is that these projects almost always do more harm than good — most of the jobs created by them end when the project is finished (that’s the nature of the construction industry), and the tourism business that they bring in almost always falls short of projections that are hailed as Holy Scripture by the projects’ backers.

So what will happen when the Berry Runner is completed? Which of the businesses currently trying to stay afloat along its route will still be in business when it’s completed?

How many of Burquenos who currently support the Berry Runner will actually ride it after it’s done?

Time will tell, but I’m not optimistic on this one.
