Will These Kids be on GMA?

It’s a well known phenomena on the network morning show circuit stories on cutie-pie kids and animals hold the viewers attention while they suck down their morning oatmeal. Or protein drink.

I won’t argue with their programing decisions, after all why not broadcast something that resembles pablum while the viewers are eating the same? The fact of the matter is I’ll even help the programing directors of all three major networks by pointing to this story about sixth graders at Trail Ridge Middle School in Longmont, Colorado.

With Earth’s warming accepted by scientists in what some call “consensus” (take a bow Gorecle), and others call pumped-up propaganda, pre-teen “lawyers” and “scientists” debated whether humans have caused global warming.

Eleven jurors listened intently as prosecutors and defendants flashed contradictory graphs tracking global temperatures, carbon dioxide levels, polar ice cap statistics, volcanic activity and sea surface temperatures — all of which were found Wednesday in the school’s computer lab.

“The earth has warmed and cooled over many years. If it’s caused by CO2, why haven’t the charts shot up?” lead prosecutor Caleb argued during a rebuttal.

In a climax that sent half the class to its feet and forced the judge to call for order, opponent Monique Nem slapped a contradictory graph onto the prosecution’s table.

“We’ve proven you wrong! The CO2 levels have shot up,” she said.

In closing arguments, Alexia Hegy said global temperatures actually decreased in the 1960’s, while the global population rose. Humans cannot be at fault, she concluded.

After closing arguments were heard the “jury” retired to conduct their deliberations.

I have it on “good authority” (myself) representatives of all three network morning shows were ready to “go live” with news bulletins if the jury returned a verdict laying blame on those disgusting humans.

An audible gasp could be heard from network satellitte trucks as the verdict was read and seven of 11 jurors decided humans are not to blame.

“It was a hard decision, because both sides made good points,” said student Samantha Roberts.

Only one parent questioned Poppe’s decision to hold a global warming debate. That mother expected him to present Al Gore’s global warming movie “An Inconvenient Truth” as indisputable facts, Poppe said. After he explained his neutrality in the classroom, the mom allowed her child to participate in the debate, he said.

You had to know The Gorecle would make his presence felt even if it was only in the form of one of his sycophants trumpeting his work of fiction.

You can be damn sure this story won’t be highlighted and that none of these students will ever be guests on GMA or any other morning “news” show.

Can’t have a bunch of sixth graders showing more common sense than the tribe of GW alarmists they happily parade cross the TV screen each morning.

Others noting this story: Kim Priestap for Wizbang, and News Busters.

The Goreacle Prophet of Global Warming, a/k/a Al Gore, has run smack into another embarrassing part of his past.

One he never bought any carbon credits for.

Gore received more than $500,000 in royalties from the owners of zinc mines who held mineral leases on his farm near Carthage, Tennessee.

Before the mines closed in 2003, they emitted thousands of pounds of toxic substances and several times, the water discharged from the mines into nearby rivers had levels of toxins above what was legal.

Zinc is used in a process called galvanization and is widely used world-wide as a coating for steel and can be found in abundence in products such as nails and wire.

The ultimate irony is most if not all the steel bodies on all cars, including hybrids, are galvanized to resist rust damage.

Operative word is “your” U.N. not mine.

Recall for a moment former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik al-Hariri was killed two years ago by a suicide bomber. Many fingers were pointed in the direction of Syria as being behind the plot.

Recall also the United Nations (“your” U.N. not mine) has been conducting an investigation into the murder since shortly after the event.

At this point in the 2 YEAR investigation it’s safe to say the U.N. is far from being rated with any of the fictional characters on CSI. Although Al Gore (a/k/a The Goreacle) might appreciate their findings.

After 2 YEARS the U.N. has made the “startling” discovery the sucide bomber “grew up in a polluted city.”

The Goreacle must be so proud! (h/t Chad)

Watch the Nutroots go wild.

As if they didn’t have enough on their plate already this news cycle with KSM singing like a lark down in Gitmo. Now they have to ingest Shillary saying if elected she would keep “a reduced but significant military force” in Iraq.

Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton foresees a “remaining military as well as political mission” in Iraq, and says that if elected president, she would keep a reduced but significant military force there to fight Al Qaeda, deter Iranian aggression, protect the Kurds and possibly support the Iraqi military.

In a half-hour interview on Tuesday in her Senate office, Mrs. Clinton said the scaled-down American military force that she would maintain in Iraq after taking office would stay off the streets in Baghdad and would no longer try to protect Iraqis from sectarian violence — even if it descended into ethnic cleansing.

Note that last bit.

She now, apparently supports ethnic cleansing. That’s mighty nice of her. Bet that thought process led to a few family squabbles when The First Hubby intervened in Kosovo.

It would also mean the U.N. can pack sand in their collective butts over the Darfur issue doesn’t it? The Sudanese Justice and Equality Movement along with all the rest of the jihadist-cut-throats in country can go on killing and raping with impunity.

Shillary is in favor of ethnic cleansing.

UPDATE: As if on cue by a stagehand (moveOn) the head bat of the loonbats weighs in on Shillary’s “new’ military strategy for Iraq. Matt Stoller: “Hillary Clinton’s promise to continue the Iraqi occupation will become the Democratic Party platform if she is the nominee. This is a very dangerous roadmap for the Democrats.”

Notice nothing is expressed on any “dangers” that might evolve from her strategy of ignoring ethnic cleansing, let alone fostering it.

It’s all about the election BABY. FUCK the Iraqis!

Captain Ed: “Hillary has revealed herself as a joke on military strategy, and more importantly, on moral grounding.”

I would hardly call it so stunning Capt, just a reaffirmation of what a blithering idiot Shillary is.

I mean really!

If “civilization as we know it is over” I suppose any efforts on my part to offset my carbon footprint will be for naught!

I can sell my Toyota Prius, (if I had one) and turn my solar panels into mirrors to view my head explode from hearing anymore Global Warming tripe!

I’d like to thank Bill Blakemore, correspondent for ABC News, for setting the record straight that the world, the civilized part of it, is indeed at an end.

Now excuse me, I gotta gets me a club and hunt me down a new woman.

I’ll be the first to admit to not being a Food Snob. A menu of T-bone steaks, smashed potatoes and corn on the cob fills the pie hole just fine.

Going “Uptown” means I’ve ordered Prime Rib and a bowl of Lobster Bisque. So when I see someone asking for Onion Bhajees the obvious question is what the hell are they!

Quickly followed by; Why is Kanye “George Bush doesn’t care about black people” West having it flown across the Atlantic – from Wales to New York – at a cost of $3,900, plus travel and accommodation for the restaurant’s head chef.

I hasten to add The Goracle needs to call his office. West is signed up to perform for The Goracle’s Live Earth concerts.

I wonder if The Goracle meant flying mobilizing chefs across the Atlantic fit the premise behind Live Earth? I mean he did say the concert series was designed to “mobilize people all over the world.”

Somehow I doubt it.

This is former VP candidate Edwards response to the Ann Coulter’s lunacy.

“I think it is important that we not reward hateful, selfish, childish behavior with attention. I also believe it is important for all of us to speak out against language of this kind; it is the place where hatred gets its foothold, and we can’t stand silently by and allow this kind of language to be used.”

Breck Boy, that wasn’t the example set when you hired feminist, anti-Catholic, anti-Christian bloggers and then refused to fire them when they were unmasked as hateful bigots.

The WaPo, via the San Francisco Chronicle, does it’s “level” best to attach its self to the current Walter Reed Hospital debacle by attempting to add fuel to the fire.

Here’s the lede: NATO’s U.S. forces in Kosovo may lose benefits of combat status

Top Defense Department officials are considering a proposal to downgrade the combat status of U.S. forces participating in the NATO peacekeeping mission in Kosovo, a decision that could cause the 1,500 U.S. soldiers currently deployed there to lose hundreds or even thousands of dollars each month in tax benefits and combat pay.

Such a decision, expected within the next month, would indicate that Pentagon officials do not believe Kosovo is still a combat zone, despite rising tensions in the Balkans over Kosovo’s continuing bid for independence and frequent U.S. missions that involve dangerous interdictions of smuggling rings, raids on armed extremist groups, and encounters with improvised bombs.

Now I don’t mean to imply this isn’t a legit and timely story, it is.

However, consider the two sources. The WaPo and SF Chronicle aren’t exactly the last bastions of all that’s right and good when it comes to war reporting. Both these Flounder Wrappers have been shouting QUAGMIRE in Iraq and Afghanistan articles since… forever.

There’s one question that comes to mind and is required to honestly assess the Pentagons move.

Where are the mass of stories by these two papers that detail “dangerous interdictions of smuggling rings, raids on armed extremist groups, and encounters with improvised bombs” as alleged?

We can only assume the Pentagon is correct in pulling Imminent Danger Pay from troops serving in Kosovo. The press has been too busy with “if it bleeds it ledes” stories out of Iraq to be bothered with the real QUAGMIRE in Kosovo.

Heaven forbid if they shine a light on 8 years of United Nations foul-ups in Kosovo. A place that still has no functioning government after 8 YEARS of U.N. control!

“The U.S. mission that began in 1999 now receives little attention amid the worsening wars in Iraq and Afghanistan,” claims the WaPo.

Yea no shit Sherlock!

Simultaneous warming on Earth and Mars suggests that our planet’s recent climate changes have a natural—and not a human-induced—cause, according to one scientist’s controversial theory.

Earth is currently experiencing rapid warming, which the vast majority of climate scientists says is due to humans pumping huge amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. (Get an overview: “Global Warming Fast Facts“.)

Mars, too, appears to be enjoying more mild and balmy temperatures.

In 2005 data from NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor and Odyssey missions revealed that the carbon dioxide “ice caps” near Mars’s south pole had been diminishing for three summers in a row.

Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of the St. Petersburg’s Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia, says the Mars data is evidence that the current global warming on Earth is being caused by changes in the sun.

“The long-term increase in solar irradiance is heating both Earth and Mars,” he said.

(Meanwhile, Dr. Goricle, upset by yet another break in the “scientific consensus” wall has wrapped his lips around a tailpipe and is Smokin SUV Fumes!)
