Global Warming Hoaxer Jagadish Shukla Involved in “Largest Science Scandal in US History”

Remember Jagadish Shukla, the climate commie who has been making a fortune off the global warming hoax and who demands that skeptics be imprisoned under RICO? Conceivably he might be headed to the Big House himself:

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), Chairman of the House Committee on Space, Science and Technology, has written to Professor Jagadish Shukla of George Mason University, in Virginia, requesting that he release all relevant documents pertaining to his activities as head of a non-profit organization called the Institute of Global Environment And Society.

Smith has two main areas of concern.

First, the apparent engagement by the institute in “partisan political activity” – which, as a non-profit, it is forbidden by law from doing.

Second, what precisely has the IGES institute done with the $63 million in taxpayer grants which it has received since 2001 and which appears to have resulted in remarkably little published research?

For example, as Watts Up With That? notes, a $4.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation to one of the institute’s offshoots appears to have resulted in just one published paper.

But the amount which has gone into the pockets of Shukla and his cronies runs into the many hundreds of thousands of dollars. In 2013 and 2014, for example, Shukla and his wife enjoyed a combined income in excess of $800,000 a year.

There’s more:

[F]or nearly 14 years, he, his family and his friends have been gorging themselves on taxpayers’ money at IGES; and … this money comes on top of the very generous salary he receives for doing much the same work at George Mason University (GMU).

It’s the latter detail which has led former Virginia State Climatologist Pat Michaels – one of the skeptics who might have been affected by Shukla’s proposed RICO prosecutions – to describe this as “the largest science scandal in US history.”

Under federal law, state employees may not be remunerated for doing work which falls under their state employee remit. As a Professor at GMU, Shukla is definitely an employee of the state. And the work for which he has most lavishly been rewarding himself at IGES appears to be remarkably similar to the work he does at GMU as professor of climate dynamics.

Getting paid twice to tell the same pernicious lies is a fine deal for Shuknjivela, but it hasn’t been working out so well for taxpayers.

CNN Reportedly Doctors Picture of Oregon Killer Chris Harper-Mercer to Make Him Look White

As if in a desperate bid to back up the Los Angeles Times’s absurd assertion that Chris-Harper-Mercer was a white supremacist, CNN has been attempting to transform him in the public mind into a Caucasian. Via The Last Refuge:


On the left is the selfie Christopher Mercer uploaded to his social media. On the right is how CNN presented the same selfie in broadcast stories about him. Why did CNN need to change the complexion (color) of their broadcast? Why is no-one showing pictures of mom, Laurel Margaret Harper?

Just a wild guess, but it could have something to do with his mother being black. But the media is happy to show you pictures of his white father.

As for the killer’s supposed “white-supremacy leanings”:


The media has gone well beyond spinning the news. Leftist outfits like La Times and CNN deal in outright lies intended to advance an agenda that is hostile in the extreme to normal Americans.

Haakon Gisvold Joins the Hate Hoax List

Not all hate hoaxes collapse spectacularly with the supposed victim tearfully admitting that the entire crime was staged. Some fabricated or heavily distorted incidents just fade away after the initial explosion of hysteria from liberal authorities, so that hardly anyone notices that we have been lied to once again.

An apparent example is the case of Haakon Gisvold at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks:

University police began investigating allegations of an assault after Haakon Gisvold, 18, reported he was stripped of his clothes, beaten and called homophobic slurs by multiple men in the early hours of Aug. 30 outside Lambda Chi Alpha, 515 Harvard St.

Frat boys strip and beat a politically sacred gay right outside their fraternity! Obviously privileged groups like homosexuals deserve to be even more privileged; look how oppressed they are!

If it supports the liberal agenda a little too perfectly, that nasty odor you’re choking on is probably a rat.

Say Anything brings us up to date:

Student leaders I’ve spoken to at UND have told me that the administration was too quick to condemn the incident, not waiting to see whether or not the facts substantiated the allegations.

“I’m disappointed by [UND] President [Robert] Kelley’s rush to convict students in the court of public opinion without allowing due process to take its course,” former UND Student Body President Nick Creamer, who is in his last year at the school, told me last month. “At this point, local authorities have not issued any sort of statement granting credibility to the allegations that have been made.”

Kelley sent out a campus wide email screeching, “This incident is even more disconcerting given that it followed the recent Grand Forks celebration of LGBT Pride,” heavily implying that a hate crime occurred.

[T]he accusation being leveled at the fraternity members … is that the alleged victim was stripped and beaten while his attackers shouted homosexual slurs. If that really happened at a crowded fraternity party, where are the witnesses coming forward to confirm it?

Keep in mind, too, that this fraternity has elected an advisor who is homosexual and who has vouched for the fraternity members. So it’s a little hard to believe that this fraternity is a den of anti-homosexual bigotry where a gay man could be stripped and beaten and nobody tells law enforcement about it.

No specific assailants have been identified.

We will probably never know exactly what happened. But it looks like Haakon Gisvold deserves a place on the Hate Hoax List.

Russia Goes After ISIS, Obama Snivels on the Sidelines

Someone is finally doing something about ISIS. But it isn’t the neutered and increasingly irrelevant USA:

The Russian Air Force has conducted more than 60 flights and bombed over 50 Islamic State targets in three days, according to Russia’s top armed forces official. He added the strikes have significantly reduced the terrorists’ combat capabilities.

“The airstrikes were being conducted night and day from the Khmeimim airbase and throughout the whole of Syria. In three days we managed to undermine the terrorists’ material-technical base and significantly reduce their combat potential,” Lieutenant General Andrey Kartapolov, head of the Main Operation Directorate of the General Staff of Russia’s armed forces, told reporters on Saturday.

He added that according to Russian intelligence the militants are fleeing the area that was in their control.

Meanwhile, the farcical liberal conception of a Commander in Chief pules,

Troy Newman of Center for Medical Policy Imprisoned by Australia

If you were planning to escape to Australia if the Left finishes reducing America to a dictatorship, think again:

American pro-life activist Troy Newman is on the board of directors of the Center for Medical Policy, which is responsible for the series of 10 videos showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted babies and their body parts. [Last] week, he was slated to head to Australia for a pro-life speaking tour at the invitation of a local pro-life group, but the Australian government is preventing him from entering the country after complaints by abortion advocates.

The pretext was a spurious accusation that Newman supports the execution of abortionists.

“Newman has been detained in Melbourne Australia pending deportation due to his visa being cancelled at the request of pro-abortion bullies who were bent on silencing Newman’s message of peaceful, legal activism on behalf of pre-born babies,” [Operation Rescue] said. “Newman’s deportation could take up to 72 hours. Meanwhile, his wife, Mellissa, whose visa is still active, is left alone in a foreign country with no luggage.”

People who have no moral qualms about killing babies to harvest their organs will not lay awake at night over lost liberties.

Chris Harper-Mercer, Who Was Black, Depicted by LA Times as White Supremacist

Much like Obama, the leftist liars at the Los Angeles Times truly jumped the shark in their rush to exploit the shootings at Umpqua Community College. This heading blasts across the page in bold type:


The piece does not mention that Chris Harper-Mercer’s mother, with whom he lived, is black. That gives the maniac the same number of black parents as our Historic First Black President.

Skepticism is advised regarding his supposed enthusiasm for white supremacism, and everything else out of the liberal establishment media that fits the agenda a little too perfectly.

Merkel and Zuckerberg Caught on Live Mic Conspiring to Censor Resistance to Muslim Invasion

Not all Germans want their nation to be extinguished beneath massive waves of largely unassimilable Muslim immigrants. The problem for Angela Merkel is convincing each of them that they are alone, and that everyone else is on board with the monumental treason she is committing. The mainstream media is helpful in this regard, being controlled by politically correct leftists who regard European civilization as a disease to be cured. But what about social media?

Looks like Merkel will be getting some help there too:

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and German Chancellor Angela Merkel were caught on a hot mic at the United Nations [last] Saturday discussing the removing of certain posts from the prolific site.

Merkel brought up the subject of anti-immigrant posts appearing on the German version of Facebook, as the country grapples with how to handle the largest refugee crisis since World War II.

“We need to do some work.” Zuckerberg says. The German chancellor presses him. “Are you working on this?” she asks in English. “Yeah,” the Facebook CEO responds before the introductory remarks of the lunch meeting cuts off their conversation.

Official confirmation:

“We are committed to working closely with the German government on this important issue,” Facebook spokeswoman Debbie Frost said via e-mail to BloombergBusiness. “We think the best solutions to dealing with people who make racist and xenophobic comments can be found when service providers, government and civil society all work together to address this common challenge.”

Zuckerberg is an ideal ally to facilitate the invasion of Germany. He funded deceptive commercials (see here and here) meant to dupe conservatives into supporting amnesty for millions of Third World immigrants, and thereby inviting millions more to follow.

Turning the word “racist” into the modern equivalent of “witch” certainly has proved useful for the cultural Marxist enemy within. All resistance to Merkel’s displacement of Germans by a hostile alien population is racist and therefore automatically discredited. Only a racist would disagree that it must be suppressed.

They make Vidkun Quisling and Philippe Pétain look like patriots.

Union: Minimum Wage for Thee, Not for Me

Unions push economically insane minimum wage laws, if only to impose leftist ideology, but don’t want their own members thrown out of work by mandatory inflated wages:

The labor union that led the charge for a $15 minimum wage hike in cities across California is now moving to secure an exemption for employers under union contracts.

The Los Angeles County Federation of Labor buried the exemption on the eighth page of its 12-page proposal for the Santa Monica City Council to review Tuesday while deciding whether to follow Los Angeles and increase the minimum wage.

The loophole would allow employers with collective bargaining agreements to sidestep the wage hike and pay their union members below the proposed $15-per-hour minimum wage.

As usual, scraping away the self-righteous veneer of moonbat ideology reveals corrupted self-interest lurking beneath:

James Sherk, a research fellow in labor economics at The Heritage Foundation, said the exemption is a union attempt to encourage businesses to unionize by making themselves the only low-wage option as union membership continues to drop off.

“This proposal would force any worker in Santa Monica whose labor is worth less than $15 an hour to purchase union representation in order to hold a job,” Sherk said. “Unions should not be able to selectively exempt themselves from the harmful consequences of the minimum wage hikes they lobby for.”

If only the government could find a way to tax left-wing hypocrisy. The proceeds could be used to pay everyone a living wage. Minimum wage would be moot because no one would have to work anymore. WaPo would love it.

This would be even better for unions, provided they get an exemption.
