Al Gore pedals climate and weather scam. CFACT film and Aussie book present Climate Facts

Shameless fear-mongering–versus reality

Paul Driessen imageBy —— Bio and ArchivesAugust 6, 2017


Before I could enjoy a movie last week, I was forced to endure five minutes of climate and weather fear-mongering, when the theater previewed Al Gore’s “Inconvenient Sequel.” His attempt to pin every weather disaster of the past decade on humanity’s fossil fuel use felt like fifty minutes of water boarding.
Mr. Gore has made tens of millions of dollars pedaling this nonsense and his demand that modern society undergo a “wrenching transformation” from oil, natural gas and coal to a utopian make-believe world powered by biofuels, wind and solar power, electric vehicles and batteries.
Every alarmist prediction has been falsified by actual events
Every alarmist prediction has been falsified by actual events: from soaring temperatures to an ice-free Arctic to monstrous hurricanes that have not hit the USA since 2005. His attempt to blame New York City floods during Superstorm Sandy ignored inconvenient truths like construction that narrowed the Hudson River by hundreds of feet, forcing any incoming water to rise higher…and flood Manhattan. Mr. Gore conveniently ignores even well known climate change and weather events of past centuries. No wonder this devotee of SUVs, private jets and multiple homes doesn’t have the spine to debate anyone over these issues. When he lectures us, he won’t even take questions that he has not preapproved.
Thankfully, those seeking an antidote or healthy dose of reality have alternatives. The Climate Hustle documentary film debunks scores of whacky predictions that never came true and presents solid evidence-based science from dozens of scientists who don’t accept “manmade climate crisis” claims. A new Australian book presents detailed and expert but fast-paced, readable material on key climate issues.
Climate Change: The Facts 2017 is the third in a series. Dedicated to the memory of the late, eminent Aussie geologist and climate scientist Bob Carter, its 22 chapters cover climate changes through the ages, the multiple natural forces that primarily drive climate and weather fluctuations, devious tricks that alarmist researchers have used to modify and “homogenize” actual temperature data, attempts to silence experts who focus on natural causes of climate change or on adaptation rather than costly “prevention,’ the historic context behind climate debates, and coral reef resilience amid alleged ocean “acidification.”
Carbon dioxide has been demonized because it is a byproduct of fossil fuel use
Assumed coral, shellfish and other asserted disasters from even slight changes in ocean pH are based on computer simulations that often extrapolate from laboratory experiments. John Abbott, Peter Ridd and Jennifer Marohasy point out that some of those experiments actually added hydrochloric acid to fish tanks to simulate acidification presumed to result from slight increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide!


The New Royal Family Of Socialism

The New Royal Family Of Socialism

Dave Merrick imageBy —— Bio and Archives August 6, 2017


It is little wonder that people like the Obamas, the Clintons, Justin Trudeau, Theresa May, Angela Merkel, Emmanuel Macron and the growing, elite group of emerging, ‘socialist’ kings and queens are all real tight buddies

What made America the greatest economic and social powerhouse in the world was the ability to work for what you want and to enjoy the fruit of that labor. It is called incentive.   Karl Marx loved to sit in coffee shops and whirl out plans for a government that he had no intention of living under. In his spare time he constructed a long, drawn out manifesto that was destined to become one of the choicest tools for a modern-day, bloodthirsty and pressed-for-time devil.

Among other things, Marx was a reporter for an American newspaper. And because he couldn’t make it in the real world of capitalism as a journalist, he dreamed of a government by which he could pull the real world down to his mediocrity.

Satan dearly loves Marx’s manifesto in that it provides false, Godless hope for the ignorant flailing masses. It envisions a world where no one has an advantage except the elite. No matter how hard “the proletariat” works, or whether it works at all, there will be one standard of living for everyone. It gives an entertaining sense of purpose and power for the hyper-caffeinated college student, upper echelon ‘community organizers’ and any other useful idiots who rally them.

The sharpest of the idiots become especially passionate ‘socialists’ when they finally open their eyes and see that there is a LOT of power and profit waiting for those at the top, who can rein all the lesser insightful in under a single banner.   Where socialism is not established, socialists of course villainize the country’s current antithetical leadership. They do that mostly because vilifying that leader is a perfect means of unifying the rabble that will help the most politically cunning ‘socialists’, to take power.

Socialism cares NOTHING about the welfare of the people, beyond providing whatever it will take to pacify them when the leadership is nested. Nevertheless, socialism’s success depends solely upon the groundlings because they are the crowbar that will get the jobs done in achieving their getting into that nest – and then staying there.

Ask the citizens of Great Britain how they like socialized medicine. Ask the people of Venezuela how well socialism is working in their country.


What information was a Mueller-led FBI trying to keep from coming into public view?

Robert Mueller’s Has Record of Framing His Quarries

Judi McLeod image

By —— Bio and Archives August 6, 2017

Back in December 11, 2016 most folk were too busy celebrating the stunning presidential victory of Donald J. Trump, or already exploring devious ways to get him impeached. Few paid any attention to the revelation of Robert Mueller’s alleged attempts to have the Icelandic government help him frame Julian Assange and WikiLeaks via the FBI.
In August of 2011,  Mueller sent a planeload of eight FBI agents on a purported mission to Iceland to sabotage Assange and WikiLeaks.  Not much notice was paid when former Icelandic Minister of the Interior, Ögmundur Jonasson caught them redhanded before sending them packing.

Jonasson revealed that U.S. authorities first told him in June 2011 that there was an ‘imminent attack’ on Iceland’s government databases; that they were sending the FBI to the rescue.  But he claims that when the FBI arrived in August, the FBI ‘sought Iceland’s cooperation to frame Assange and WikiLeaks’ in a mission that was part of a ‘wide-ranging investigation’ into Assange and WikiLeaks’.

Savvy to their real intention that had nothing to do with saving government database cyber attacks,  Jonasson’s response was to have the FBI kicked out of Iceland.

The story was widely reported on in 2013, but Jonasson made no attempt of the U.S. trying to frame Assange until he became a whistleblower last December, making it the biggest “if only” story of all time.  “If only” Jonasson had come forward in 2011, would Robert Mueller have ever been appointed as Special Counsel and get to empanel a Grand Jury to probe the Russia/Trump non-stop mainstream media allegation

“The authorities said there was an ‘imminent attack’ on Iceland’s government databases and that the FBI would send agents to investigate.  (Anneta Konstantinides For, Dec. 11, 2016)
“Jonasson said he was immediately skeptical of the FBI’s intentions.  ‘I was suspicious,’ he told Katoikos. ‘Well aware that a helping hand might easily become a manipulating hand!’
Why was the FBI involved in an undercover operation to take Assange and WikiLeaks down, and why was the mainstream media not reporting on it for two long years?
“Jonasson said it was only when a ‘planeload’ of FBI agents arrived in August that he realized the true reason for their visit. (DailyMail)  “The former minister claims the FBI was seeking Iceland’s ‘cooperation in what I understood as an operation set up to frame Julian Assange and WikiLeaks’.
“Jonasson said he immediately told the FBI agents to leave the country.



Coming September 9, 2017, “America First Rally”  Nation wide



America’s largest National Security Grassroots organization members will show their support for common sense national defense

(WASHINGTON, DC, August 1, 2017) — ACT for America announces a nationwide series of “America First” rallies to be held in cities across America on Saturday, September 9, 2017. These events will be held in memory of those who were lost in the worst terrorist attack targeting American civilians in our history, and to promote our agenda of common sense “America First” security policies proposed by President Trump, which prioritize real protection over political correctness, and celebrate American exceptionalism.

“Our nation made a vow after 9/11/2001 to “Never Forget,” but remembrance, while a necessary debt, is not a sufficient one. We as Americans must also raise our voices when our nation remains vulnerable to recurring threats,” said Brigitte Gabriel, founder of ACT for America.

These rallies will call for support of President Trump’s common-sense America First security policies and those aligned with it. These include:

  • To Secure Our Borders from threats to our safety.
  • To Defeat ISIS, Al Qaeda, & Affiliates
  • To Designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization
  • To Ensure Proper & Effective Vetting of Refugees for the protection of all
  • Americans
  • To Respect Law & Order, our police, our military and those who put their lives on the line for us each day. 

Rallies will be held in cities across America, with further details available at

ACT for America is the largest national security organization in America, made up of some 750,000 citizens who have come together to demand that America put the safety of her own citizens first. We welcome all, discriminate against none, and require that our members behave at all times peacefully and with honor. Accordingly, any organizations or individuals advocating violence or hatred towards anyone based on race, religion, or affiliation is not welcome at this rally.

​We have to create our own rally here, there are none in our area.
I have ordered 16 posters for the rally, they are printed on both sides.

​I wold love to line the sidewalk for its total length along U.S 27 and Sparta road​
​We need to get out and support President trump, and let our legislators know that they need to get behind this president.
Please make personal signs also let’s make the biggest showing we have ever had on this day.​
​Suggestion from above for signs:
  • Secure Our Borders from threats to our safety.
  • Defeat ISIS, Al Qaeda, & Affiliates
  • Designate the Muslim Brotherhood as a Foreign Terrorist Organization
  • ​Demand  CAIR be designate as a Foreigner Terrorist organization (it is in the UAE, and it is connected to HAMAS)​
  • Ensure Proper & Effective Vetting of Refugees for the protection of all Americans
  • Respect Law & Order, our police, our military and those who put their lives on the line for us each day. 
​I would very much like to see the HREC to join with us in the Rally, we all need to get behind our President, our Congress is not,
maybe this will put them on notice.​

A total Eclipse of the sun will occur across the united states starting in Oregon, then
passing through parts of Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois,

Kentucky, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina.  First Eclipse of the Sun in
99 years, first total eclipse fully visible in the U.S. since it’s founding in 1776.

It’s an interesting fact that this eclipse path cuts right through the middle of several very large cities. If you’re in St. Louis or Kansas City, you need to be in a certain part of town to see totality. Nashville is partially in totality. Portland OR misses it, as does Atlanta and Chattanooga. Bowling Green is barely in the path. Greenville SC is, but Spartanburg isn’t! And Charlotte misses as well. Omaha is not in the path, but Lincoln is – just barely. And the great national Parks of Yellowstone/Grand Teton, and the Great Smoky Mountains are cut in half by the path. But Craters of the Moon misses the show! The Land Between the Lakes in Kentucky will be perfect, weather permitting! But if you want to be there to see it, then you need to be in the right spot! Check out the maps to make sure you’re there!

See here how the path just barely cuts into Iowa. No cities in that state will see totality.

Ditto for Montana. (Check out the teeny little piece of this grand state that sees totality!)

Here are maps of the beaches in Oregon and South Carolina

There are other cities that are on the edge of the shadow. Here, you need to know where to be in order to see totailty:

Cape Girardeau, MO
Charleston, SC
Cleveland, TN
Knoxville, TN
Redmond, OR

There are some great cities that are squarely in the path, as well! Check out the maps below, and prepare for a great show, all you inhabitants of Columbia (MO and SC!), Rexburg, Lincoln, North Platte, Paducah, Grand Island and Casper! You’re some of the lucky ones who won’t even have to leave home!

There are other maps to see on the page that describes the Path through the US.

The mutiny on the Potomac has begun, and the fate of the captain of our ship, President Trump, hangs in the balance



The world is witnessing a political mutiny that is unprecedented in the annals of American history. Donald Trump was duly and overwhelmingly elected President of the United States on Tuesday November 8, 2016. He received the votes of almost 63 million Americans, the highest total ever for a Republican Party presidential candidate. Through a remarkably targeted campaign, he won electoral votes in 31 states, destroying his opponent in the Electoral College. For any other President, his opponents would have given him a “honeymoon,” and allowed his administration to get started and implement his agenda.

Trump has been the subject of an unrelenting and unparalleled number of deceitful attacks from his disgruntled opponents

Unfortunately, these traditional American political norms do not apply to Donald Trump. Despite his legitimate victory, Trump has been the subject of an unrelenting and unparalleled number of deceitful attacks from his disgruntled opponents. Immediately after his victory, a sinister network of deep state operatives, Obama holdovers in the bureaucracy, “Never Trump” Republicans, Democrats, and biased liberals in the media joined forces to achieve one goal, overturning the election results.

The reason this corrupt cabal is trying to invalidate the will of the American people is that President Trump’s agenda is a severe threat to their livelihoods. The “sultans of the status quo” view the President’s plan to put “America First” and “Drain the Swamp,” as a call to political arms and a battle for their survival.

To protect their power, Trump’s many opponents have tried everything from challenging the presidential vote totals in certain states to intimidating the members of the Electoral College. When that failed, the next step has been to manufacture the “Russian collusion” nonsense, which has led to the precarious situation which exists today.

Sadly, the Attorney General Jeff Sessions made the horrible mistake of recusing himself from the investigation, which set in motion the process that created the Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, who is trying to find a crime to tie to President Trump. There is nothing in the “Russian collusion” story, so Mueller is now scrutinizing the complicated financial dealings of the President and his business empire.

Although the President has expressed his displeasure with this “witch hunt,” if he attempts to fire Mueller, Congress will try to impeach him. According to Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), “any effort to go after Mueller could be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency.” With Republican “friends” like Graham, the President certainly does not need enemies. To bolster his threat, Graham is working on legislation to prevent the President from firing Mueller without “judicial review.”

Republican led Senate has abandoned President Trump
The actions of Graham and several other GOP Senators illustrate how the Republican led Senate has abandoned President Trump. For example, the Senate, along with the House, overwhelmingly passed a bill imposing sanctions on Russia and preventing the President from easing them. It is the equivalent of Congress usurping presidential authority and since he has few Capitol Hill allies, the President was forced to sign the bill. A veto would have surely been overturned in an embarrassing display of presidential weakness.
