Progressives have officially killed science for their own political purposes

Scientists now champion censorship and cancel culture, scientific publications are reduced to political polemics with no scientific value while claiming their unique expertise is relevant anywhere they see fit.  Science died in 2020.  Now, they want to bury it so deep it might  never be found again. Future historians will likely look back on the… Continue reading Progressives have officially killed science for their own political purposes

Queen Elizabeth II was irreplaceable and the monarchy might not make it long without her

Elizabeth II was a bridge between the past and the future.  She wasn’t Churchill’s Queen, or Margaret Thatcher’s Queen, or Tony Blair’s Queen, though she presided over them all.  She was a Queen for all her people and all Great Britain, working hand in hand with political legends without being a political activist.  Her heir,… Continue reading Queen Elizabeth II was irreplaceable and the monarchy might not make it long without her

High energy prices and no air conditioning, welcome to the progressive future

A columnist for Bloomberg urges President Biden to ensure gas prices never fall below $5 per gallon again while a writer for CNN claims we should ditch our air conditioners in favor of “passive cooling.”  The progressive movement has never been more regressive, calling for you to suffer with less mobility, comfort, choice, and freedom. … Continue reading High energy prices and no air conditioning, welcome to the progressive future

Joe Manchin: Slayer of planets and Democrat dreams all over again

Some shows are better in reruns, so it was last week when Senator Joe Manchin stood alone against his own party once again, stopping the insanity of increasing taxes and regulations in a period of rampant inflation and slowing economic growth.  Both are the precise opposite of what economics demands, but Democrats are increasingly unmoored… Continue reading Joe Manchin: Slayer of planets and Democrat dreams all over again

The backwards insanity of our energy policy

For years, progressives have advocated increasing the cost of gasoline and other fossil fuels via a “carbon pricing” scheme, but now that prices have spiked, President Biden is blaming Russia, begging communist dictatorships to produce more dirty fuels, and lying about the insanity of his own energy policy.   Earlier this week, President Biden blamed the… Continue reading The backwards insanity of our energy policy

From “hide the decline” to hide the coronavirus data

The scientific establishment positions itself as an objective authority that demands our trust, but their actions over the course of the past two decades certainly don’t suggest they are worthy of it.  From an old scandal in climate science to a new one concerning the pandemic, they hide the data that doesn’t support their conclusions… Continue reading From “hide the decline” to hide the coronavirus data

Climate change: Young people can’t cope with the weather and experts are happy to exploit those fears for their own ends

A new study finds a large majority of people aged 16-25 suffer from “climate anxiety” and close to half report their feelings about the environment negatively affect their daily lives, but rather than recognize these fears as irrational, the experts use them to advance their progressive agenda.  It’s all green, all the time, except when… Continue reading Climate change: Young people can’t cope with the weather and experts are happy to exploit those fears for their own ends

Welcome to the shortage of everything crisis, where you pay the price, but don’t blame the politicians, the experts, or the activists

Barely six months ago, we were told the economy was poised for explosive growth not seen in decades.  Now, they’re bracing us to cancel Christmas as the world experiences a shortage of everything from microchips to toys.  How could the experts be so completely and catastrophically wrong once again? Earlier this week, the respected economics… Continue reading Welcome to the shortage of everything crisis, where you pay the price, but don’t blame the politicians, the experts, or the activists

Spreading fear and growing government, now as inevitable as death and taxes

The media industrial complex backed by so-called experts and politicians pushes out panic for clicks, and the only way to avert catastrophe is to back some new government program or expansion of government power. The result is an increasing disconnect between the reality of the threats we face and the public’s perception, rendering us incapable… Continue reading Spreading fear and growing government, now as inevitable as death and taxes

The pressure to “act” on climate change is more intense than the warming and the weather

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issues its latest report as leading climate alarmists claim we have “zero years” left to avoid catastrophic effects, but what do the report and analysis actually say?  And why can’t we just focus on capturing carbon in the atmosphere instead of ever more intrusive and complex schemes no one… Continue reading The pressure to “act” on climate change is more intense than the warming and the weather
