Global Warming Continues To Pummel Polar Ice Caps By Not Causing Them To Melt

Leave a comment

This is from Town Hall.

ISIS is murdering Christians by the thousands and they are not a threat.

Criminals are flooding over our border and they are raping and murdering people and they are not a threat.

But globull warming that is not real is a threat. 


As I’ve written previously, we’ve experienced the calmest Hurricane season in 30 years, the quietest tornado season in 60 years; the creation of 19,000 Manhattan islands worth of sea ice, and (again) the Arctic Ice Cap has grown by 533,000 square miles. In 2007, the BBC warned the cap could vanish by 2013. Oh, and we’re at the most industrialized point in human history–and air quality couldn’t be better, according to the EPA.

Now, the polar ice caps aren’t melting. In fact, they haven’t retreated at all. James Taylor of the Heartland Institute wrote in Forbes that the 1979 baseline on polar ice recorded a figure with that was unusually high, so when some melted we didn’t really need to panic. Well, the green warriors of the world did, but the ice rebounded in 2012. Taylor wrote,“Ever since, the polar ice caps have been at a greater average extent than the post-1979 mean.” [emphasis mine]

Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in 1979. Since the end of 2012, moreover,total polar ice extent has largely remained above the post-1979 average.The updated data contradict one of the most frequently asserted global warming claims – that global warming is causing the polar ice caps to recede.The timing of the 1979 NASA satellite instrument launch could not have been better for global warming alarmists. The late 1970s marked the end of a 30-year cooling trend. As a result, the polar ice caps were quite likely more extensive than they had been since at least the 1920s. Nevertheless, this abnormally extensive 1979 polar ice extent would appear to be the “normal” baseline when comparing post-1979 polar ice extent.

Updated NASA satellite data show the polar ice caps remained at approximately their 1979 extent until the middle of the last decade. Beginning in 2005, however, polar ice modestly receded for several years. By 2012, polar sea ice had receded by approximately 10 percent from 1979 measurements. (Total polar ice area – factoring in both sea and land ice – had receded by much less than 10 percent, but alarmists focused on the sea ice loss as “proof” of a global warming crisis.)

A 10-percent decline in polar sea ice is not very remarkable, especially considering the 1979 baseline was abnormally high anyway. Regardless, global warming activists and a compliant news media frequently and vociferously claimed the modest polar ice cap retreat was a sign of impending catastrophe. Al Gore even predicted the Arctic ice cap could completely disappear by 2014.

In late 2012, however, polar ice dramatically rebounded and quickly surpassed the post-1979 average. Ever since, the polar ice caps have been at a greater average extent than the post-1979 mean.

Now, in May 2015, the updated NASA data show polar sea ice is approximately 5 percent above the post-1979 average.

It’s been recently reported that there’s so much sea ice around Antarctica that vessels carrying scientists and supplies are having trouble reaching the research stations there. It appears global warming isn’t melting any polar ice in her ongoing campaign against earth and humanity. Additionally, she decided notto make 2014 the warmest year in history. Global warming, we are still waiting for you to kill us all.

Last week, President Obama said global warming is a threat to national security. So, why did the CIA shut down their climate research project?  As Leah wrote, this is pretty “awkward timing,” and another example that this administration really doesn’t know what’s going on regarding threats to the country.  ISIS is pushing forward, China is upgrading their ballistic missiles, Yemen has fallen, the Iran nuclear deal is fraught with uncertainty.  Is anyone home?

Editor’s note: James Taylor works for the Heartland Institute (still a great organization), not Forbes. The post has been updated to reflect the changes. 




Lindenhurst family receives racially charged letter in mailbox, told to leave town

I am throwing the Bull Shit flag on this letter.

How many letters that are supposed to be from a racist end a letter with an apology?

If a racist wrote this where are the threats if this family does not comply?

Why if 16% of the community is black why did only one family get such a letter?

LINDENHURST, N.Y. (PIX11)– Suffolk County police are investigating a possible hate crime targeting an African-American family in Lindenhurst.

Ronica Copes, a resident of the suburban neighborhood,received a letter saying “YOU DON’T BELONG HERE” and other hateful words on Thursday.

Understandably so, she was disappointed at the sight of the hateful letter.

“Unbelievable but then it’s not…our daily reality, I’ve just never seen it in this form,” Copes posted on Facebook.

The writer of the flyer who says “Lidenhurst is 84 percent white” urges Copes in bold capital letters to “LEAVE AS SOON SHE CAN” because “IT WILL BE BETTER FOR ALL OF US.”

The racist letter gained the attention of  county executive Steven Bellone, who lashed out against the author of the flyer in a statement Friday.

“To the coward who committed a hate crime against an innocent family in Lindenhurst — There is no place for intolerance in Suffolk County.  I know the Suffolk County Police Department will do everything possible to solve this hate crime, out you and see you punished. I stand together with all Lindenhurst residents who decry this act of hatred. This community and all of Suffolk County are better than that.”

While police continue their investigation, Copes is thankful for the support she’s received during the ordeal.

“Thank you all for sharing your frustrations, opinions, suggestions, and concerns!” she said. “Will keep you abreast of the outcome.”

10 Horrible Atrocities Committed By The SS

1 Comment

This is from ListVerse.

This illustrates just how vicious the Nazis and the S. S. were.

The Schutzstaffel, better known as the SS, was the black soul of the Nazi regime. The group, whose name means “Protection Squadron,” was established in 1925 to provide security for Hitler and other Nazi leaders. When Heinrich Himmler became the head of the SS in 1929, it was a turning point. Himmler wanted the SS to become an elite organization that was representative of the Nazi party’s master-race beliefs. He used ancestry and political loyalty to carefully vet all who were deemed ideal for the SS. They were to become the guardians of “racial purity.”

Originally, it was a small group of eight men who were essentially bodyguards, but slowly, their importance within the party grew. As their power and numbers swelled, so did their brutality. By the end of World War II, when the SS was more than 580,000 strong, they were killing thousands of people daily.

10Torturing Political Prisoners



The first concentration camp established by the Nazis was in Dachau, Germany, before the onset of World War II. It became well known after the war because of the medical experiments performed there. However, in March 1933, this house of horrors was a holding site for German political prisoners, not Jews.


Hitler had become Germany’s chancellor a few months earlier, and speaking out against him was now a capital crime. Approximately 4,800 prisoners were held at the SS-guarded Dachau concentration camp that year, many of which were communists, socialists, and democrats. Without a trial, the political opponents were either imprisoned or executed in the concentration camp. The murder of prisoner Sebastian Nefzger, just a few months after the camp opened, prompted a very public investigation by one of Munich’s public prosecutors.

After unfavorable findings, Hitler ordered that the concentration camp would no longer fall under judicial oversight and that the SS would be solely in charge of its affairs. This, of course, meant there would no longer be any investigations into the deaths that happened at Dachau, and the SS would have the ability to kill prisoners without question. The new regulations for Dachau stated that prisoners who didn’t follow the rules would be beaten and that anyone who tried to escape would be executed on the spot. These regulations became standard for all subsequent concentration camps.

9The Night Of The Long Knives

Shortly after the SS was established, their reputation for being heartless thugs that carried out the dirty work of Nazi leaders began to take shape. As early as 1921, when he became the leader of the National Socialist German Workers’ (Nazi) Party, Hitler was already encouraging his followers to act out violently against his political opponents.

By April 1934, Himmler, already leader of the SS, had also been named the head of the Geheime Staatspolizei, or Gestapo, a secret state police organization. In that role, he was charged with tracking down and arresting Hitler’s opponents, but he wasn’t just looking outside of the Nazi party for enemies. Himmler also turned his attention to people that were seen as threats within the party, particularly those in the paramilitary organization known as the Sturmabteilung (SA). The SS was originally an offshoot of the SA, but by 1934, the SA was far too independent, and potentially powerful, for Hitler’s liking.

In an effort to further consolidate control under Hitler, the decision was made to eliminate his opponents. Chief among them was the head of the SA, Ernst Rohm. In an operation orchestrated largely by the SS, from June 30–July 2, 1934, people who were considered to be opponents were rounded up and eliminated. In total, more than 85 murders were carried out (although hundreds are likely), most of which were done by members of the SS. This three-day killing spree came to known as “The Night of the Long Knives,” in reference to the ancient Saxon surprise attack and massacre of the Britons.

8The SS Einsatzgruppen’s Destructive Polish Campaign

Polish Invasion

The top concern for the SS was annihilating anything and everyone that was considered a threat to the Nazis. One way they did this was with the Einsatzgruppen. The SS Einsatzgruppen was a paramilitary task force that was formed in 1938, when Austria and parts of Czechoslovakia were being annexed and occupied by Germany.

At first, the Einsatzgruppen served primarily as a support group for the military, but that all changed with the invasion of Poland in 1939. When the Polish Campaign began, roughly 3,000 men in the Einsatzgruppen wereorganized into six units. Their purpose was to eliminate Jewish people and any Polish political opposition that remained after German troops overran an area.

From September 1–October 25, 1939, the Einsatzgruppen were responsible for more than 16,000 deaths and the destruction of over 500 towns in Poland. In the first few weeks of the Polish invasion alone, there were 10,000 arrests. Though trials were originally held, Reinhard Heydrich, the commander of the SS intelligence service Sicherheitsdienst (SD), ordered that people be shot or hanged without trial. His reason—the killings weren’t happening quick enough.

The Einsatzgruppen mostly shot people whom they deemed to be the opposition, but there are records of hundreds being burned alive in synagogues. The killings were so brutal that German army commanders complained about the Einsatzgruppen’s activities.

7Establishing The Generalgouvernement

When Germany invaded Poland in 1939, it launched World War II and gave the Nazis more territorial control. Poland was split into three regions, and the central region became known as Generalgouvernement. From the very beginning, Generalgouvernement was meant to be a place where the SS could carry out some of its worst atrocities against the Jewish people.

Although Hans Frank was the governor-general of Generalgouvernement, it was SS-Obergruppenfuehrer Friedrich Kruger who actually ran the region. He, his SS underlings, and the police forces they controlled were there to carry out the Nazis’ racial policies. They also used the 12 million people living within the Generalgouvernement as cheap labor. Nothing but complete obedience was acceptable. If the Polish opposition killed a German, the SS would publicly execute 50–100 Poles.

The SS also carried out mass killings and arrests simply to send a message and to keep the opposition stifled. Many Polish institutions were destroyed, art and historic artifacts were stolen, and their financial institutions were usurped. The Germans even controlled the food sources and left the Poles with barely enough food to survive. But the situation was far worse for Jewish Poles. Shortly after the invasion, their property was taken, and they were forced into slave labor. Three years later, many were sent to nearby extermination camps, where the vast majority of them were killed.

6The Night Of Crystal



Kristallnacht, also known as the Night of Crystal or Night of Broken Glass, was a bloody, two-day uprising that was orchestrated by Nazi officials and the SA. On November 9, 1938, local Nazi offices across Germany, Austria, and Sudetenland, in Czechoslovakia, received orders that a “spontaneous” pogrom would take place. “Pogrom” is a Russian term that describes rioting and attacks against Jews by non-Jews.

The orders for the pogrom included not harming non-Jewish Germans and foreigners, removing synagogue archives before destroying the building, and bringing the archives to Secret Service officials. Firefighters were directed to stand by while Jewish synagogues and businesses burned to the ground and to only intervene if the fire looked like it could spread to Aryan properties. The local police were also told to arrest as many healthy, young Jewish men as possible.

In the two days of the Kristallnacht, 267 synagogues were destroyed, hundreds more were damaged, over 7,500 Jewish businesses were vandalized, at least 91 Jews were murdered, and countless rapes were noted in police records. During Kristallnacht, the SS and Gestapo arrested over 30,000 Jewish men and incarcerated them in concentration camps, where hundreds ultimately died. It was the first time the Nazis conducted a mass incarceration based on ethnicity, but it wouldn’t be the last. Kristallnacht was the excuse the Nazis needed for beginning the process of emigrating Jews out of Germany and transferring their property to Aryan individuals.

To add insult to injury, German officials publicly announced that the Jewish community was to blame for the pogrom and fined German Jews the equivalent of $400 million. The Third Reich also seized insurance payouts from the Jewish homeowners and business owners who suffered property damage during the event.

5Kidnapping And Germanization Of Aryan Children



The SS was charged with protecting the Nazi idea of racial purity. This meant eliminating non-Aryans and also increasing the number of hereditarily valuable people. In other words, the Third Reich wanted the racially selected SS members to have as many blue-eyed, blonde-headed children as possible to build the Aryan race.

But the SS took their plans much further. They didn’t want Aryan traits to go to waste just because children were Polish or from another country outside of Germany. As far as the SS was concerned, their genetic traits were desirable and proof that Nordic blood ran through their veins.

In 1939, Himmler made it clear during a speech that the intent in Poland was to parse out the Aryan children. He stated, “A fundamental question is the racial screening and sifting of the young. It is obvious that in this mixture of people some very good racial types will appear from time to time.” The Germans proceeded to systematically assess all of the Polish children between ages 2-12 and categorize them as racially valuable or racially worthless. The “worthless” children who were old enough were sent to work in Germany rather than being sent back home. The “valuable” children were ripped from their families to become a part of Germany’s master race.

Children over the age of six were sent to institutions for Germanization, or in other words, indoctrination. The younger children were further assessed and then given to childless SS members and “families of good race.” Correspondence from SS leaders like Lieutenant General Ulrich Greifelt made it clear that the operation was to be shrouded in secrecy. The leadership fabricated the story that these stolen children were German orphans from regained territories. As a result, many of the German families were completely unaware that the adopted children had actually been kidnapped.

It is estimated that around 200,000 children in Poland were taken from their families, and another 200,000 were abducted from other countries in Eastern Europe. Ultimately, years later, some children were restored to their parents, but by then many of the younger ones didn’t remember anything beyond their German family. In essence, many loving families were once again ripped apart, making the ordeal that much worse for the children.

4Using Rape And Sterilization To Degrade Women



Over the years, victim interviews, diaries, writings, and eyewitness accounts have uncovered that thousands of Jewish women were raped by SS members during pogroms and in concentration camps. There are also records of at least 10 brothels at concentration camps, where women were forced into prostitution.

Though law prohibited the Aryan SS members from having sexual relations with Jewish women, there are many accounts of just that happening. The brothels, which were condoned by Himmler, were instated as both an incentive for male prisoners to work harder and for the camp guards. Horrific stories have been uncovered and bodies exhumed that provide evidence of women being sexually assaulted and tortured strictly for the pleasure of the SS guards. These assaults were also used as a form of torture, meant to degrade the women and break their spirit.

In addition, there are records that show tens of thousands of women were sterilized in the camps, and many others were forced to have abortions, which left them sterile. For others, the violent assaults left them unable to bear children.

3Biological Warfare



As the Protection Squadron, the SS was expected to provide internal security. Figuring out the most effective ways to wage war and kill was a part of the job, which the SS leadership eagerly took on and explored with fervor. Their efforts included experimenting with biological warfare.

Archived documents show that an entomological research institute was established at the Dachau concentration camp in 1942. There, the Nazis conducted experiments with the end goal of creating biological weapons, even though Hitler had forbade such weaponry. Himmler enlisted the help of Eduard May in testing whether insects like mosquitoes could be used to infect their enemies with malaria. May examined different species to determine which type of mosquito was best suited for the job. He also researched fleas and rats and attempted to pick the brains of plague experts.

Ultimately, May refused to experiment on people and never actually handled infectious diseases. His role appears to have been more of a researcher, tasked with identifying which insects would make the best bioweapons. Luckily, the SS didn’t have the time and resources to carry out their plan.

2Mobile Gas Chambers

As World War II progressed, Germany moved into the Soviet Union. Once they gained ground, the primary role of the SS Einsatzgruppen squads, which translates to “mobile killing units,” was to round up and kill racial and political enemies in controlled Soviet Union territory.

One way that the Einsatzgruppen carried out their mission was with mobile gas chambers. The SS reconfigured the exhaust system of vans so that carbon monoxide would be pumped into the back of the vehicle, where unsuspecting victims sat. The Einsatzgruppen would drive right up to people’s homes, capture them, and kill them as they drove out to a mass grave site, where they dumped the bodies.

These mobile gas vans were used at the first killing facility, Chelmno, at the end of 1941. By 1943, the specially designed death machines were responsible for killing at least 152,000 people. Many experts consider the actions of the Einsatzgruppen to be the first step in the Nazis’ “Final Solution.”

1The Final Solution’s Killing Centers

It’s as ominous as it sounds. The Final Solution was the code name given to the Nazis’ answer to the Jewish question. That “solution” was mass genocide. After years of building hatred and extreme discrimination, the SS leadership decided that such a vile act was the answer.

Little is known about the discussions that happened behind closed doors or how long SS generals had been considering the complete annihilation of the Jewish people. But on July 31, 1941, after Hitler had turned over all security responsibilities to Himmler, SS General Reinhard Heydrich was told to begin preparations for orchestrating and carrying out the horrible deed.

Their plan, to first test their solution in Generalgouvernement, was dubbed “Operation Reinhard.” Here, the SS set up three killing stations that were meant to murder as many Jewish people as quickly as possible. These “death factories,” located in Sobibor, Belzec, and Treblinka, are where the gas chambers were first set up. Within short order, Himmler ordered that a killing center be established at Auschwitz-Birkenau. This is where 1,000,000 Jews met their end. In total, the German SS forces murdered almost 2.7 million Jews at the killing centers, all as a part of their Final Solution.

R. I. P. Army Cpl. Richard L. Wing. Hand Salute.


Army Cpl. Richard L. Wing was reported missing following a battle with Chinese forces in November 1950. The remains of Wing, who later was reported to have been captured by the Chinese, recently were positively identified Defense Department scientists.

Pentagon officials announced on Friday that the remains of a U.S. soldier, missing from the Korean War, were identified and will be returned to his family for burial with full military honors.

Army Cpl. Richard L. Wing, 19, of Toledo, Ohio, will be buried June 5, in Arlington National Cemetery, near Washington D.C., according to the Department of Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA).

In late November 1950, Wing was assigned to Company H, 5th Cavalry Regiment, 1st Cavalry Division, which was deployed north and southeast of the town of Kunu-ri, North Korea, when their defensive line was attacked by Chinese forces, compelling the unit to retreat south to a more defensible position, near the town of Sunchon. Before they could disengage, the 1st Cavalry Division was forced to fight through a series of Chinese roadblocks, commonly known as the Gauntlet. Wing was reported missing in action after the battle.

In 1953, returning American soldiers who had been held as prisoners of war reported that Wing had been captured by Chinese forces in November 1950 near Kunu-ri, and died of dysentery in a prisoner of war camp known as Camp 5 in Pyokdong, North Korea.

Between 1991 and 1994, North Korea turned over to the U.S. 208 boxes of human remains believed to contain more than 400 U.S. servicemen who fought during the war. North Korean documents, turned over at that time, indicated that some of the remains were recovered from the vicinity where Wing was believed to have died.

To identify Wing’s remains, scientists from DPAA and the Armed Forces DNA Identification Laboratory (AFDIL) used circumstantial evidence and forensic identification tools, to include two forms of DNA analysis; mitochondrial DNA, which matched his sister and brother and Y-STR DNA, which matched his brother.

Today, 7,852 Americans remain unaccounted for from the Korean War. Using modern technology, identifications continue to be made from remains that were previously turned over by North Korean officials or recovered by American recovery teams.

Healthcare Insurance Companies Asking to Raise Rates Up to 50% and More

Leave a comment

This is from Godfather Politics.

I can hear the Obamabots saying, but Obama promised lower premiums and we would save up to $2,500.

Damned fools.


Many people including myself had predicted healthcare insurance rates to climb higher than they did in 2014 and 2015. Obamacare supporters have used the lower increases to defend our national socialist medical program.

However, that defense is about to take a major hit.

A growing number of major healthcare insurance carriers have started filing requests for 2016 rate hikes with their state insurance departments. A number of those rate hike requests will not only silence many Obamacare defenders, they will indicate just how unaffordable the Affordable Care Act has become.

One report stated:

“BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee . . . said it lost $141 million from exchange-sold plans, stemming largely from a small number of sick enrollees. ‘Our filing is planned to allow us to operate on at least a break-even basis for these plans, meaning that the rate would cover only medical services and expenses—with no profit margin for 2016,’ said spokeswoman Mary Danielson.”

Similar losses have prompted some carriers to request huge increases. CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield in Maryland has requested increases of 30.4% on average over current premium rates. Let’s put that into perspective. A family paying $300 a month could see their premiums jump up to $391.20 a month. That’s an annual increase of $1,094.40.

However, Maryland residents should be thankful they don’t live in New Mexico where the leading healthcare insurer Health Care Service Corp. has filed a rate increase averaging 51.6% over current rates. Again, to put this into perspective, the same $300 a month premium would jumps to $454.80. That’s an annual increase of $1,857.60.

In an economy where most families are not even seeing cost of living increases, these rate hikes could easily be more than they can afford. It will undoubtedly lead to many more families dropping their healthcare insurance for purely financial reasons.

If enough major healthcare insurance providers join in with double digit rate hike requests, it could be the final nail in Obamacare’s coffin, proving once and for all that it’s not affordable and will leave far more Americans without insurance than when it went into effect.

I just hope and pray that Republicans have a workable and truly affordable plan ready when the collapse of Obamacare happens.
