Global Warming Killed Off Space Aliens

What fun it would be to interact with wise and benevolent space aliens like E.T. But we can’t, possibly because global warming killed them, according to an exceptionally shrill and delusion propaganda piece at Discovery:

As we look deeper into our galaxy for signs of extraterrestrial life, we keep drawing a blank. Does this mean life on Earth is unique and we’re the only ones out here? Or could it just mean that all the aliens are dead?

Fresh on the heels of the recent news surrounding the increasingly dire climate forecast for our planet, comes a possible warning from the cosmos: climate change in extraterrestrial environments is inevitable and, should life on hypothetically habitable worlds not act as a stabilizer for their environments, it serves as a “sell-by” date for all burgeoning lifeforms.

Acting as a “stabilizer” presumably means allowing left-wing politicians to ratchet up taxation and regulation. Never mind that no evidence has ever been presented that Big Government can significantly influence the climate, no matter how much damage it inflicts on the economy.

Soon we will meet the fate of the aliens if we do not submit to the will of the warmists:

Now, we’re seeing rapid impacts on our civilization as the balance in our climate is knocked off-kilter by the inexorable rise of greenhouse gases from industrial processes and energy needs. …

For now, this is all speculation, but what’s clear from observations of our own planet, is that … unless we find a way of reversing the damage we’ve caused to our environment, it seems we’ll quickly become just another lifeform that didn’t make the grade.

Dead space aliens. Add it to the Warmlist (human extinction is already on it).

E.T. first noticed global warming when it attacked his finger.

A German Mayor’s Solution to Colognization

Mayor of Bad Schlema [pop. 4,866] Jens Müller has a solution to the Colognization of Germany, to be passed along to girls of all ages who do not wish to be taunted and molested by Muslim colonists: “Just don’t provoke them and don’t walk in these areas.”

Provoking them entails going outside in anything less than a burka. “These areas” means pretty much anywhere in Germany.

Liberal Republican Establishment Loser Bob Dole Calls Reagan Republican Ted Cruz a “RINO”

At this point in the struggle between a conservative and a slick-talking populist for control of the Republican party, tensions are running high. We could use a little comic relief. Here’s what Bob Dole has to say about Ted Cruz:

“I doubt that he’s a Republican. … He’s a RINO — he’s a Republican in name only.”

WTF? Dole’s is the most likely face to be found in an illustrated dictionary next to the term RINO. How could the liberal establishmentarian whom Newt Gingrich dubbed “the tax collector for the welfare state,” and whose vapid mealiness got Bill Clinton reelected, call a principled conservative a RINO?

Doleful’s explanation:

“My candidate is Jeb Bush and I wish I could see him more on Fox today. But I think we have a number of good candidates who are Republicans and we have Cruz, who I don’t think is a Republican,” Dole said. “He is an extreme conservative. There is no one like him in the Senate. No one likes him in the Senate. All he’s done is shut down the government twice. Cost millions of dollars and put federal workers out of work for a few days. I don’t really believe the people in Iowa are extreme conservatives.”

But if Bob Troll can’t have Jeb, he will settle for Trump.

Maybe he has a point. Cruz is clearly a conservative before he is a Republican.

Being a dinghy, Dole doesn’t understand why a ship needs to have a keel.

Dole denounces Cruz for being conservative.

Islamic Butchers Kill 86 in Campaign to Drive Christianity Out of Nigeria

Where Muslims are a tiny minority, they squawk about the oppression of minorities. Where they are a significant minority, they blow up buses and shoot up concert halls. Where they have achieved large numbers but not yet total dominance, they do this:

A survivor hidden in a tree says he watched Boko Haram extremists firebomb huts and heard the screams of children burning to death, among 86 people officials say died in the latest attack by Nigeria’s homegrown Islamic extremists.

Scores of charred corpses and bodies with bullet wounds littered the streets from Saturday night’s attack on Dalori village and two nearby camps housing 25,000 refugees, according to survivors and soldiers at the scene just 5 kilometers (3 miles) from Maiduguri, the birthplace of Boko Haram and the biggest city in Nigeria’s northeast.

The shooting, burning and explosions from three [female] suicide bombers continued for nearly four hours in the unprotected area, survivor Alamin Bakura said, weeping on a telephone call to The Associated Press. He said several of his family members were killed or wounded. …

The 6-year Islamic uprising has killed about 20,000 people and driven 2.5 million from their homes.

Not to worry. I’m sure the White House will make it all better with a hashtag. In any case, never forget that Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with Islam, as Hillary Clinton has averred.

Whoops, wrong hashtag.

Tom Tancredo, Tea Party Patriots Endorse Cruz

As a resident of Maricopa County, I have long admired Sheriff Joe Arpaio for standing up to the federal government and attempting to enforce immigration law. I was disappointed but not surprised when he endorsed Donald Trump, despite Trump’s insincerity on immigration [e.g., here and here], because both are known as showboating publicity hounds. A more meaningful endorsement would be from Tom Tancredo, who has personified the demand for immigration enforcement since founding the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus in 1999. Tancredo endorses Ted Cruz:

Avoiding a repeat of past treachery on immigration means electing a president who will keep his promises, not “work out a deal” that perpetuates our open borders fiasco. So, it is fair to ask, can we trust Ted Cruz to challenge the Republican establishment’s love affair with massive immigration?

Some candidates make loud, colorful promises to secure our borders. Ted Cruz has a record of actually fighting for secure borders.

• In 2013, Cruz fought in the Senate trenches to defeat the establishment’s grandiose “Gang of Eight” amnesty bill. He offered strong amendments that exposed the true character of the amnesty bill.

• The Senate conservative leader of that battle, Senator Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), credits Ted Cruz as being his strong right arm in the fight. Their arguments were so sound and their fight so successful that a majority of Republican senators ended up voting against the amnesty bill and it died in the House.

• Did that battle win him friends among the Republican Party leadership? No. Did making enemies among party leadership stop him from doing the right thing? No.

It is easy to attack the establishment from the outside; that always gets applause and cheers, even when the “outsider” has a lifelong record of enjoying the benefits of insider status.

It takes real courage and conviction to attack the establishment from within and makes waves as big as a tsunami. Ted Cruz has done that – consistently, and successfully, on immigration and other issues like Obamacare, voting rights, and the 2nd Amendment.

That’s why the establishment fears Ted Cruz: He’s the real deal.

Another disappointment was Sarah Palin’s Trump endorsement. She too has a weakness for publicity. Although Palin was seen as representative of the Tea Party, she climbed aboard the movement rather than help build it. Now she has climbed off again. Where the Tea Party is concerned, a more meaningful endorsement would be Jenny Beth Martin’s:

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin [Saturday] announced the SuperPAC associated with the largest national Tea Party organization in the country is endorsing Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) to be the next president of the United States.

“We seek a candidate who shares our values: personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future. On behalf of Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund and our supporters, I am proud to announce our endorsement for president of the United States: Senator Ted Cruz!”

Key Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund activists from around the country joined Jenny Beth Martin on stage in Sioux City to endorse Senator Cruz.

As John Hawkins observes in his own endorsement of Ted Cruz,

Cruz is the first grassroots-friendly conservative to be within striking distance of becoming the GOP nominee since Reagan. Opportunities like this don’t come along very often and if conservatives let this one pass, we may never again have a chance to put a conservative champion like Cruz in the White House.

We don’t have to guess what Cruz will do once in office. He has already proven himself by fighting ferociously against the Beltway establishment that others are so eager to cut deals with. Cruz is an opportunity we cannot let pass.

Tacos in Higher Education

The University of Missouri was once an institution of higher learning. Then moonbattery came. President Tim Wolfe was compelled to crawl away with his tail between his legs for failing to oppose white privilege with sufficient exuberance, as cretinous lunatics like Melissa Click rose to prominence. Nowadays Mizzou students spend their time learning about the offensiveness of taco costumes:

In the wake of last semester’s race-related protests — and the poop swastika [see here], and the hallucinated, nonexistent people wearing Ku Klux Klan hoods [see here] — officials at the University of Missouri are requiring all new students to undergo diversity training.

The mandatory indoctrination sessions, called “Diversity@Mizzou,” started in the spring 2016 semester, reports Campus Reform.

Faculty members from departments including sociology and women’s and gender studies have conducted the sessions.

One presenter, Rebecca Martinez, displayed images of Katy Perry in a geisha outfit. Martinez, a women’s studies professor, then asked the assembled attendees: “Is this cultural appropriation?”

Martinez also showed audience members photos of people in Mexican-themed Halloween costumes including a taco costume. She then instructed that such garb is culturally offensive.

“That’s not even a Mexican taco!” Martinez said, according to Campus Reform. “It has lettuce in it!”

See how much you can learn at college? Students aren’t going into debt for the next 20 years for nothing.

Mizzou isn’t the only place students can go to learn about tacos:

Students at the University of Kentucky now have the distinct privilege of being able to get college credit for eating tacos. According to Munchies, the university is offering an undergraduate class called “Taco Literacy: Public Advocacy and Mexican Food in the US South” …

“This class allows our students to explore the issues of immigration, inequality, workers, intercultural communication, and literacy through the prism of food,” Steven Alvarez, an assistant professor from the school’s writing, rhetoric, and digital studies department told Munchies.

In addition to multiculti P.C. B.S., the coursework actually entails eating tacos.

No wonder applications to Mizzou are down. Students are probably applying to Kentucky instead.

Students learn to identify taco-related thought crimes.

Moonbats Eager to Trade Racists for Rapists


Do moonbats have no idea what the people running Europe are unleashing upon the native population? Sure they know. They just don’t mind:

Rote Antifa [Red Antifascist] posted a picture of young feminist on Thursday, holding a sign that stated she preferred rapists from Syria and North Africa over nationalists in Germany who have demanded Chancellor Angela Merkel stop taking in more refugees.

“Prefer sexually active fugitive as German racists,” was featured as the pictures caption.

Germany cities with high levels of refugees have been plagued with explosive increases in sexual assaults over the last few months.

The city of Cologne saw more than a thousand refugees molesting, assaulting, and raping young German women on New Years Eve alone.

Yet again we see that leftists will side with any enemy in their eagerness to destroy their own civilization. That she might be subjected to a gang rape herself and be discarded dead in a ditch somewhere does not seem to occur to the moonbat in the photo — although the original sign read “will trade racists for refugees,” having been photoshopped before Rote Antifa posted the picture.

Should Catholics Support Donald Trump?

Catholics and evangelicals have a lot of common ground, so when asks whether Catholics should vote for Donald Trump, the answer is of interest to both. This answer is a resounding no.

CV supports its decision by listing popular arguments in defense of The Donald and eviscerating them:

1. “Trump is a leader we can trust”
2. “Trump can’t be bought because he is rich!”
3. “Trump is a leader who will get things done”
4. “Trump is a successful businessman who will make great deals”
5. “Trump will end illegal immigration”
6. “Trump will fight the Establishment!”
7. “Trump is one of us”

One by one, these arguments are reduced to ashes. For example,

6. “Trump will fight the Establishment!”

This defense of Trump is somewhat rich, given the irony that Trump himself has boasted of playing the game, paying off politicians and enriching himself from the very system he now purports to reform. Case in point: in the past week a growing number of so-called “establishment Republicans” have warmed to supporting Trump, people like Bob Dole and Trent Lott — including establishment Republicans in Iowa like Gov. Terry Branstad. Why? Because they believe, rightly in our view, that Trump doesn’t have any principles at the end of the day. He’s someone who will wheel and deal — and you and I will be stuck with the bill.

Electing Donald Trump would send the pro-life movement back to the 1990s, when the Republican Party wanted to run away from defending the unborn. In fact, Trump recommended his own sister, Maryanne Trump Berry, for the Supreme Court. She’s the federal judge who overturned New Jersey’s ban on grisly partial-birth abortions. The next President may choose as many as three or more new justices. Trump’s suggestion of his pro-abortion sister as an example ought to worry anyone who cares about the Court. And let’s not forget he once said Oprah would make a great Vice President. Enough said.

Terror Suspect Was Placed in Charge of Hillary’s Security During Libya Visit

Hillary Clinton’s appalling incompetence on security matters helped kill four Americans in Benghazi. More may have been killed do to the leaking of classified information as a result of her email shenanigans. More still are lucky to have survived her general ineptitude — including Shrillary herself:

A known Islamic terror suspect was placed in charge of Hillary Clinton’s local security detail during a trip by the US Secretary of State to Libya, Daily Mail Online can reveal.

The shocking security blunder occurred in October 2011 when Clinton made an unannounced visit to Libya following the toppling of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi.

This toppling was an even larger blunder, considering that Gaddafi had been cooperating with the West on terror, and had been preventing massive swarms of refugees from surging out of Africa, through Libya, and into anything that would float to invade Europe, as is currently happening. There was no one in a position to fill the power vacuum, which is why ISIS is now in the process of taking over Libya.

Unwittingly flanked by a man known to British security forces as a member of the banned Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) and considered a threat to British and US national security Mrs Clinton held talks with top officials from the National Transitional Council (NTC) and spoke of her ‘pride’ at standing ‘on the soil of a free Tripoli.’

“Free Tripoli” is part of the now failed state of Libya, a breeding ground for terrorists.

Shrillary doesn’t make her own security arrangements. But she is responsible for selecting people who can do their job effectively. Instead, she chooses foolishly. Examples include the bungling Cheryl Mills and Muslim Brotherhood–linked Huma Abedin. These are the sort of people who would be running the country under a Hillary Administration.

Shrillary cackles mindlessly over what she helped do to Libya.

Cruz Wins Over Angry Iowa Farmer on Ethanol

A leader does not alternate between pandering, bullying, and hiding. A leader persuades, as Cruz has done on eliminating ethanol subsidies. Like this:

In this really remarkable video, Ted Cruz is accosted by an angry farmer about his plan to phase out subsidies, and Cruz gives him as much time as it takes to get him to say, “well I hope the farmers vote for you” by the end of the exchange. …

You can sense how angry the farmer is, but Cruz employs his impressively deep knowledge of the subject to explain calmly why his policies will HELP farmers, even though he’ll phase out the government subsidy.

Maybe the farmer was just being nice at the end, but he went from total anger to a pretty calm and accepting demeanor, all due to Cruz’s engaging arguments.

Sixty Percent Unfavorable Rate = Trump Not Electable

From Gallup:

Trump is the most unpopular candidate of either party when the entire U.S. population is taken into account — and … he has a higher unfavorable rating than any nominated candidate from either of the two major parties going back to the 1992 election when we began to track favorability using the current format.

At this point (two-week average through Jan. 27), 33% of Americans view Trump favorably and 60% unfavorably.

Even Hillary, despite decades of subjecting us to corruption, incompetence, and her shrill, witchlike cackle, has a significantly better unfavorable rate at 52%. In sharp contrast, Ted Cruz’s unfavorable rate is only 37%, despite the Washington establishment telling us he is unlikable.

Subtracting unfavorable from favorable has recently provided the following numbers:

Cruz sits at +51 with Republicans, which is the highest in the field. He’s at -3 with Independents, and -37 with Democrats. While that sounds bad, consider Trump is only at +27 with Republicans, -27 with Independents, and a whopping -70 with Democrats.

I’ll type slowly, so as not to leave behind those who have been shouting the literally insane talking point that a vote for anyone but Trump is a vote for Shrillary. Donald Trump cannot win the national election, even if he gets to run against Shrillary, whom any other Republican would whale on. One-third of Republicans may worship the floor beneath his loafers; that does not mean he wouldn’t stand a good chance of losing all 50 states, with negative coattails that would put Democrats in charge of both houses of Congress.

Will the Trump train’s inevitable derailment occur during or after the primaries?

Caucus Wisely, Iowans

You wouldn’t expect Cruz to beat Trump in New York or New Jersey. So why is the contest expected to be so close in Iowa?

As PJ Media notes,

There can be no doubt that Cruz and Trump have completely different sets of values. If Iowans decide to vote for Trump, that’s fine, but they have to know who he is and what he believes, so they’re not bamboozled into casting a vote for a closet-liberal.

The secret to Trump’s success is that his opposition is divided. The opposition in Iowa needs to rally behind the candidate most likely to beat him.

Local NAACP President Uses F-Word While Apologizing for Using T-Word While Demanding Apologies Over N-Word

Live by moonbattery, die by moonbattery:

Don Harris, the president of the Maricopa County [Arizona] Chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, had just finished an event at Tempe Union High School District to discuss an incident at the school in which several girls wore black t-shirts bearing the letters “N-I-*-*-E-R” on them.

The miscreants:


They were suspended for 5 days for the stunt. But that wasn’t enough to please Harris, who barked,

“This hurtful use of a racial slur is a complete disregard for the dignity of the black community in Arizona and across the nation and the punishment does not fit the total ignorance and cruelty of the crime.”

Harris was on hand to accept apologizes and demand action.

But after the meeting, while participants were speaking with the media, he was caught on camera saying Channel 12 reporter Monique Griego had “nice tits.”

The militantly politically correct were thrown into another paroxysm of self-righteous rage. Harris responded with a self-aggrandizing, obscenity-laced tirade.

The New Times contacted Harris after that incident and reports the NAACP leader said, “I apologize if anyone was offended. I could have said nothing . . . I’m really f*cking sorry.”

He argued that the meeting was over when he complimented the reporter’s rack and then really blew a gasket

Raved the professional imposer of political correctness,

“I’m going to slash my wrists,” he spews. “Better yet, I’m going to throw myself out of a fu**ing window, except I’m on the first floor . . . I’m one of the best go**amned people in the state.” …

“They’ve seen me now, they’ve seen what I’ve done. I’ve given up my law practice. I’m down here six, seven days a week. That’s what my commitment is. I support NOW, the women’s organization — go**amn! — are you shi**ing me? Are you going to write this up?”

Like faux-Negress Rachel Dolezal, a fellow local NAACP president whom he has denounced for lacking credibility, Harris is of the Caucasian persuasion. There were calls for his ouster on the grounds of sexism and “white privilege.” He has been forced to resign.

No More Deals

Having no discernible political principles allows The Donald great flexibility. Just recently he has pulled dramatic 180° turns on crucial issues like amnesty and Syrian refugees. It also allows him to be a great dealmaker, as he frequently boasts. The question is whether a dealmaker is what we need:

The GOP establishment has its reasons for warming up to Trump while continuing to detest Ted Cruz.

Vet Sues Public High School for Trying to Convert His Daughter to Islam

The education system is run by liberals; since September 11, 2001, liberals have been increasingly affectionate toward Islam. It was only a matter of time until public schools started effectively proselytizing on behalf of a religion that calls for the destruction of non-Islamic society:

The parents of a Maryland teenager are suing their daughter’s high school over a world history lesson they claim was little more than Islamic indoctrination.

The Thomas More Law Center filed a lawsuit against La Plata High School on behalf of John and Melissa Wood, claiming the lesson favored a “sugar-coated version of Islam” over other religions and forced their 16-year-old child “to disparage her Christian faith,” according to the law firm.

The parents said the class spent one day on Christianity, followed by two weeks on Islam.

And the 11th grader was “forced to profess and to write out the Shahada in worksheets and quizzes,” the firm said.

“The Shahada is the Islamic Creed, ‘There is no god but Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah.’ For non-Muslims, reciting the statement is sufficient to convert one to Islam.”

Anyone who recites the shahada and then fails to follow Islam is marked for death as an apostate.

According to the suit, the class was told “the Islamic religion is a fact while Christianity and Judaism are just beliefs,” and were not allowed to opt out of the lesson on the basis of religious beliefs.

So much for that “wall of separation” so beloved by progressives when the topic is Christianity.

Wood was told his daughter would receive a zero if she didn’t complete the assignments.

It gets worse…

Adding insult to injury, the father, a Marine veteran who was deployed in Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm, was banned from school grounds after he complained, according to the suit.

Clearly some pushback is in order. It would be wonderful if more people were taught the blood-soaked history of Islam. But teaching Islam itself is the business of madrassas, not public schools.

Why Trump Supported Amnesty Until Very Recently

Trump was a supporter of amnesty until he recently pulled a 180 on the issue to secure the nomination. As recently as last summer, even after his presidential campaign had begun, he was still in favor of the so-called “path to citizenship.” This ad provides some insight as to why:

That his supporters believe Trump would be any firmer on immigration than Marco Rubio once in power proves that rules don’t apply to the Trumpster, including the rules of logic.
