Climate change is causing AGW alarmists’ ‘studies’ to be increasingly funny

The guzzlers of Al Gore’s Kool Aid are touting this “study” that affirms severe weather events are linked to man-made climate change.

Check out “study guideline” #1:

The scientists list the following questions as a guide to their study.

1. Given a particular weather pattern, how were the temperatures, precipitation, and associated impacts influenced by climate change?

2. Given a drought, how was the drying enhanced by climate change and how did that influence the moisture deficits and dryness of the soils, leading to a more intense and long-lasting drought?

3. Given a flood, where did the moisture come from? Was it increased by warmer ocean waters?

4. Given a heat wave, how was that influenced by drought, changes in precipitation, and extra heat from global warming?

5. Given extreme snow, where did the moisture come from? Was it related to oceans that are warmer?

6. Given an extreme storm, how was it influenced by sea temperatures, ocean heat content, unusual moisture transports?

7. Was a storm surge worse because of higher sea levels?

The “study” already achieved the desired outcome before the “study” was even conducted. Notice that #1 asked “how were” the factors influenced by climate change — not if they were or weren’t influenced by it at all.

Here’s the kicker from the “study”:

“The climate is changing: we have a new normal. The environment in which all weather events occur is not what it used to be. All storms, without exception, are different. Even if most of them look just like the ones we used to have, they are not the same.”

Just shut up and give them your money, rubes!

If only the world would have offered ‘Jihadi John’ some economic opportunity…

Last week, State Department spokesclown Marie Harf claimed that one ingredient in fighting terrorism is aiding in job creation so they have other opportunities and options. Obama agreed in an op-ed, writing that “the world has to offer today’s youth something better.”

If only this guy had been provided with some economic opportunity growing up:

The world knows him as “Jihadi John,” the masked man with a British accent who has beheaded several hostages held by the Islamic State and who taunts audiences in videos circulated widely online.

But his real name, according to friends and others familiar with his case, is Mohammed Emwazi, a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming. He is believed to have traveled to Syria around 2012 and to have later joined the Islamic State, the group whose barbarity he has come to symbolize.

According to the Obama/State Department model, the poor kid never had a chance!

Mall of America worried their preferred method to repel potential terrorists won’t be effective?

The loose-lipped Department of Homeland Security Director Jeh Johnson (I long for the days of the warming confidence radiated by Janet Napolitano) said Sunday that shoppers at the Mall of America should be “particularly careful” because of a threat made against the MOA by Al-Shabaab.

Up to now, this is how the Mall of America was kept secure (via Doug Ross):

This might shock you, but the authorities now think that might not be enough to deter terrorists.

The MOA has since beefed up security measures and isn’t only relying on the signs. Maybe the “gun free zone” signs should be re-enforced with State Department “violent extremism neighborhood watch” signs for an added layer of anti-terror protection.

State Dept. spokesgenius on stopping spread of ISIS: We’ve got to help get these people job opportunities

Marie Harf at the State Department put the Obama anti-terror philosophy on full display last night. Even Chris Matthews couldn’t fully rationalize what she was saying:

MATTHEWS: Are we killing enough of them?

HARF: We’re killing a lot of them and we’re going to keep killing more of them. So are the Egyptians, so are the Jordanians. They’re in this fight with us. But we cannot win this war by killing them. We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs, whether —

MATTHEWS: We’re not going to be able to stop that in our lifetime or fifty lifetimes. There’s always going to be poor people. There’s always going to be poor muslims, and as long as there are poor Muslims, the trumpet’s blowing and they’ll join. We can’t stop that, can we?

HARF: We can work with countries around the world to help improve their governance. We can help them build their economies so they can have job opportunities for these people…

In those videos ISIS releases before they behead or burn people alive, I must have missed the part where they issue a demand for a “good job at a fair wage.” To be this delusional is to also deny the simple reality that ISIS (and many other terrorists organizations for that matter) already have f*#kloads of money and are heavily financed. JOBS? They’ve got jobs, Marie, and those jobs are to kill “infidels.”

It’s hard to believe that the United States still exists with these people running things, but give them time.

Update:

That worldview isn’t Harf’s or Kerry’s alone. It drizzles from the top down, as Obama demonstrates in an op-ed published today:

More broadly, groups like al Qaeda and ISIL exploit the anger that festers when people feel that injustice and corruption leave them with no chance of improving their lives. The world has to offer today’s youth something better.

You see? It’s our fault.

Leave it to the community organizer-in-chief to turn religious fanaticism into a social justice problem.

Obama seeks ways to stop unaffiliated zealots from attacking random folks for unexplainable reasons

In France not long ago, Islamic terrorists killed many people in the Charlie Hebdo office in Paris before going to a Kosher grocery store and subsequently murdering four French Jews they were holding hostage.

If you’re President Obama, how do you phrase that? Simple:

Look, the point is this: my first job is to protect the American people. It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.

“Vicious zealots” killed a “bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.” He must be talking about the Crusades again — you just can’t trust those Christians!

CNN’s Cuomo and Amanpour suffer self-inflicted beclownings covering terrorist attack in France

“The most trusted name in news” continues wiping their butts with that slogan.

First up, Chris Cuomo, faced with having to describe a black person from another country, wasn’t quite sure what to do:

Speaking of CNN dolts, not to be outdone, Christiane Amanpour referred to the murder-spree terrorists in France as “activists.” Would she use the same term to describe them if they’d attacked CNN headquarters?

Not the dumbest thing ever said on MSNBC, but tied for first with 5,000 others

Libs will always go out of their way to find a moral equivalence for Islamic terrorism. In this example, discover how a terrorist attack that left 12 dead in Paris isn’t all that different than Jerry Falwell’s lawsuit against Larry Flynt:

Got that? A defamation lawsuit filed by a Christian against a porno dirtbag = Islamists killing a dozen people in cold blood. It makes as much sense as almost anything else on MSNBC.

And then there were 127: Obama admin releases five more from Gitmo

Before Obama leaves office he’s determined to fulfill at least one campaign promise — unfortunately it’s the one that involves increasing the number of free-range terrorists:

Five men who were held for a dozen years at the U.S. Navy base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, have been sent to the Central Asian nation of Kazakhstan for resettlement, the U.S. government announced Tuesday.

The two men from Tunisia and three from Yemen had been cleared for release from the prison by a government task force but could not be sent to their homelands. The U.S. has sent hundreds of prisoners from Guantanamo to third countries but this is the first time Kazakhstan has accepted any for resettlement.

Their release brings the prison population at Guantanamo to 127, according to a Pentagon statement.
[…]
Nearly 30 prisoners have been resettled in third countries this year as part of President Barack Obama’s renewed push to close the detention center over opposition from Congress.

The excuse they couldn’t be sent to their “homelands” is hilarious: Because of “unrest and militant activity.” In other words the Obama administration is saying it would be be like releasing somebody from the Betty Ford Clinic and sending them to live on Fremont Street in Vegas. Usually the truth is that their home countries don’t want them back.

Obviously Obama owns a different version of ‘the good book’ than everybody else

Thanks to President Obama’s pitiful attempt to link his executive amnesty to Christian principles, we once again play a game of “imagine if Sarah Palin said that”:

“I think the ‘Good Book’ says don’t throw stones in glass houses…”

That’s NOT in the Bible, but in fairness to Obama, he didn’t reference the “Bible,” but rather “the Good Book” — meaning he could have been talking about Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”
