Net Neutrality

Net Neutrality. “The real problem …is on the signal and content end. A handful of corporations dominate everything. Net Neutrality, like so many industry battles, is just about the various titans positioning themselves on the industry battlefield by using the government to get their way.”

“Our freedom to access the internet is threatened by all of them. But the signal providers tend to care about profit and bandwidth. The content providers are getting into politics. Signal cares how much data you use. Content is starting to shape what you see for its own reasons.” ~ by Daniel Greenfield, Frontpagemag.com

Content = Google, Facebook, etc.

Signal = Comcast, ATT, etc.

Obviously, politicians favor the content side for self-serving reasons. You can forget about politicians serving the public.

A climate fairy tale

“Let the Paris climate deal die. It was never good for anything, anyway” by Bruce Pardy,   Professor of Law at Queen’s University, in Canada’s Financial Post. This column is based upon an article forthcoming in the Journal of Environmental Law and Practice.

“Paris is a climate fairy tale. It has always been more about money and politics than the environment. If human action is not causing the climate to change, Paris is irrelevant. If it is, then Paris is an obstacle to actual solutions. If there is a crisis, it will be solved when someone develops a low-carbon energy source as useful and cheap as fossil fuels. A transition will then occur without government interventions and international declarations. Until then, Paris will fix nothing. It serves interests that have little to do with atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases. Will America’s repudiation result in its eventual demise? One can hope.” –Bruce Pardy, Canada’s Financial Post, 18 May 2018

The class war you are fighting

The bone marrow of the left, the ideas that give it momentum and make its war against America a forever war,” is a class-based society, an oligarchy, a reset to the days of divine-right rule before the Magna Carta and before the American and French revolutions.   Ultimately, the leftist utopia is a society based on eugenics, wealth and power. Race, gender, politics, popular culture, media, war, educational systems, established religions, international relations are their means to that end and each of these means has its technocracy and trade craft for “radically transforming” society and government.

Reformed radical David Horowitz explains, “Chief among them [the leftist ideas] is the notion that ‘equality’ must be created by any means necessary. But, as he shows in his writings, “Disparities and disproportions of talent, intelligence and physical ability are intrinsic and so basic to the entire human enterprise that creating equality can only be accomplished by a violent social engineering, which is why the seductive utopias of the left always turn out to killing fields in disguise. The demands for ‘social justice’ by today’s progressives are just another version of the demands for equality by yesterday’s Marxist Leninists. Both promise human redemption. Both produce the destruction of human freedom.”

The dividers claim a mixed-race royal wedding marks the end of white supremacy, having been paid by the donations of the rich and powerful class. That same class by their political contributions is actively and covertly pushing a borderless, wall-less, value-less and weapon-less world … for everyone except them. As before the Magna Carta and revolutions, when the plagues come, that same class, the oligarchy, will be protected behind walls, gun turrets and layers of expendable people.

It is unequivocal and a natural law: you and I will never be equal. Or as Thomas Sowell puts it, “Nobody is equal to anybody. Even the same man is not equal to himself on different days.”  But, liberty requires that the law treats each citizen equally in the eyes of the law. The technocracy of ‘social justice’ with its trade craft known as community organization have radically transformed equality in the eyes of the law into institutions that protect the oligarchy. They can buy their private beaches, votes in Congress, never-to-be-jailed-cards, research studies, smear campaigns and “news.” You and I cannot. That was the plan for identity politics and it worked.

The intelligentsia that coagulates in schools eliminates opposition, just as done by the “White Russians” who spearheaded the Russian Revolution and the Chinese Revolution, and then the “Red Russians” eliminated them and established a tyranny of the oligarchy, while the rest of society was communist. The class struggle on the streets, whether KKK, Antifa, or Islamic, or Occupy Wall Street is the means to tyranny by oligarchy … a means to establish a class-structured social order with different rules for them and for us.

“When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in a society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it.” ~ Frédéric Bastiat

This is true for governments, corporations, universities, unions, and churches. The iron law of technocracy is: The larger it is, the more it will be used against you.  The FBI, the Department of Justice, the EPA, the United Nations, the European Union, the Catholic Church, Net Neutrality and social media, courts of law, The United States of America, etc are all being actively used against you.  Apathy and tolerance enable the tyranny of class, the tyranny of oligarchy.

The founders and framers of the American republic understood human nature and natural law.  They fought with their lives, their property supported by only about thirty percent of their fellow colonists to overthrow a divine right king and an oligarchy.  They did not design a national government.  They designed a federation of state governments, leaving most of the political power to the states and the people.  And the limited powers that were authorized to the three independent parts of the federal government were designed to offset each other.  When the revolution was over, the colonists – now citizens instead of subjects – wanted to put a king’s crown on the man who led them against the mad king George of England, but George Washington refused the crown.  The colonists, now citizens, elected our first President instead…a President with limited powers.

And ever since then, oligarchs have been fundamentally transforming our republic of the people and states into the heavily centralized national government that it is today.  But the oligarchs have even larger plans that are even worse for the people.  Their utopia is global.

Social justice warriors, indoctrinated and paid by oligarchy, want a borderless globe.  Citizens fail to heed the admonitions of Thomas Jefferson, “A single consolidated government would become the most corrupt government on earth.”  In a letter to Edward Carrington, Thomas Jefferson wrote that, “The natural progress of things is for liberty to yield and government to gain ground.” He noted that “one of the most profound preferences in human nature is for satisfying one’s needs and desires with the least possible exertion; for appropriating wealth produced by the labor of others, rather than producing it by one’s own labor… the stronger and more centralized the government, the safer would be the guarantee of such monopolies; in other words, the stronger the government, the weaker the producer, the less consideration need be given him and the more might be taken away from him.” (1)

And so too citizens fail to heed the admonitions of George Washington in his farewell address to the new nation. “It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world; so far, I mean, as we are now at liberty to do it; for let me not be understood as capable of patronizing infidelity to existing engagements. I hold the maxim no less applicable to public than to private affairs, that honesty is always the best policy. I repeat it, therefore, let those engagements be observed in their genuine sense. But, in my opinion, it is unnecessary and would be unwise to extend them.” …

“Taking care always to keep ourselves by suitable establishments on a respectable defensive posture, “we may safely trust to temporary alliances for extraordinary emergencies.”

Our founders and framers were not utopians.  They were utilitarian and pragmatic.  Washington and Jefferson were not arguing for isolationism.  They were arguing for strong homeland defense and arguing against empire and well-known human urges, especially the will to power.

So long as you accept the authority of government, there will always be wars and our kids, or grandkids will be cannon fodder for the leftist oligarchy.  Democracy is wholly unsuited for empire, regardless whether the empire is national or global.  Unfortunately, almost no one in politics listened or understood, much less put in practice, the sage advice of our founders and framers.  Without democracy, where does that leave you?

Yes, volcanoes in Hawaii emit CO2

EPA and global warming alarmists use reports from NOAA’s atmospheric CO2 observatory which is located on Mauna Loa.  “The Mauna Loa data are being obtained at an altitude of 3400 m in the northern subtropics, and may not be the same as the globally averaged CO2 concentration at the surface. “  https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/ccgg/trends/  Atmospheric concentrations of CO2 are not consistent globally.  Sampling CO2 on the side of a volcano is a problem, but the problem is meaningless compared to the global warming/climate change fraud.

 

Yes, volcanoes emit large amounts of CO2, but the amount is small compared to emissions from oceans and land.  Volcanic activity is the only way that CO2 is returned to the atmosphere once the CO2 has been turned into limestone/CaCO3, which of course results from the continuous natural degradation of all biological material that enters the oceans.  Sedimentation of that degraded organic matter plates out in layers which eventually become stone on the bottom of all oceans.  That stone is the ultimate carbon sink.  The high heat of a volcano or deep earth magma is required in the reaction to release the CO2 from CaCO3.   CO2 in the atmosphere is the only pathway for carbon to enter the food chain.  Most CO2 re-enters the atmosphere from the oceans.  Of course, carbon is the building block for all biology.

 

That is the carbon cycle simply put.  Leave it to arrogant, hubristic so-called “progressives” to break that carbon cycle.  Meanwhile they sue, berate and threaten people who call them on their fraud, in addition to funneling billions of dollars of taxpayer and unwitting donor money into crony projects.

 

Volcanic CO2 is not a major contributor to total atmospheric CO2 concentration.  Nor are humans a major contributor to atmospheric CO2 concentration, only about 3.4%.

 

There are many unanswerd scientific problems which falsify the global warming hypothesis, as you know.  Most significantly, the atmosphere cannot significantly warm the oceans because of the huge difference in heat capacity, and the logarithmic/non-linear physical chemistry of CO2 energy absorption and emission. Doubling of CO2 concentration results in progressively diminishing amounts of warming.  CO2’s IR quanta are already almost filled at 400 ppm.

 

To scare people, they present a graphic CO2 steadily rising from 200 ppmv to 400ppmv and sound alarms to extort money.  But 200 ppmv is barely enough to keep plants alive.

 

Lawyers could make many millions and stop this fraud by filing triple damage cases against climate alarmists who are promoting the perhaps unintended consequence of killing the planet … or more likely … the radical reduction in human population under the disproven eugenics theories of Thomas Malthus, Paul “Population Bomb” Ehrlich,  John Holdren and Margaret Sanger…now joined by Charles, soon to be King of England.

 

More than you wanted or expected as usual, and most you already know, but you may want to forward it.

Iran’s intentions were never there

“It was all there on paper in black and white, down to the precise number of centrifuges: the terms of a potential “fix” that President Donald Trump had demanded for the United States to stay in the Iran nuclear deal.” ~ Garrett O’Brien

Fools have always rushed in

Can it be that Providence has not connected the permanent felicity of a nation with its virtue? The experiment, at least, is recommended by every sentiment which ennobles human nature. Alas! Is it rendered impossible by its vices? In the execution of such a plan, nothing is more essential than that permanent, inveterate antipathies against particular nations, and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated…

So likewise, a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils. Sympathy for the favorite nation, facilitating the illusion of an imaginary common interest in cases where no real common interest exists, and infusing into one the enmities of the other, betrays the former into a participation in the quarrels and wars of the latter, without adequate inducement or justification. It leads also to concessions to the favorite nation of privileges denied to others, which is apt doubly to injure the nation making the concessions, by unnecessarily parting with what ought to have been retained, and by exciting jealousy, ill-will, and a disposition to retaliate, in the parties from whom equal privileges are withheld. And it gives to ambitious, corrupted, or deluged citizens (who devote themselves to the favorite nation), facility to betray or sacrifice the interests of their own country, without odium, sometimes even with popularity; gilding with the appearances of a virtuous sense of obligation, a commendable deference for public opinion, or a laudable zeal for public good, the base or foolish compliances of ambition, corruption, or infatuation…

It is our true policy to steer clear of permanent alliances with any portion of the foreign world; so far, I mean, as we are now at liberty to do it; for let me not be understood as capable of patronizing infidelity to existing engagements. I hold the maxim no less applicable to public than to private affairs, that honesty is always the best policy. I repeat it, therefore, let those engagements be observed in their genuine sense. But, in my opinion, it is unnecessary and would be unwise to extend them.

Taking care always to keep ourselves, by suitable establishments, on a respectable defensive posture, we may safely trust to temporary alliances for extraordinary emergencies. …

Harmony, liberal intercourse with all nations, are recommended by policy, humanity, and interest. But even our commercial policy should hold an equal and impartial hand; neither seeking nor granting exclusive favors or preferences; consulting the natural course of things; diffusing and diversifying by gentle means the streams of commerce, but forcing nothing; establishing with powers so disposed, in order to give trade a stable course, to define the rights of our merchants, and to enable the government to support them, conventional rules of intercourse, the best that present circumstances and mutual opinion will permit, but temporary, and liable to be from time to time abandoned or varied, as experience and circumstances dictate; constantly keeping in view, that it is folly in one nation to look for disinterested favors from another; that it must pay with a portion of its independence for whatever it may accept under that character; that, by such acceptance, it may place itself in the condition of having given equivalents for nominal favors; and yet of being reproached with ingratitude for not giving more. There can be no greater error than to expect or calculate upon real favors from nation to nation. It is an illusion, which experience must cure, which a just pride ought to discard. :

Fools rushed into Iran agreement

The problems with the Iran nuke deal are not in the words written in the agreement. The first problem is that Obama and Kerry implemented this deal as an executive agreement instead of a treaty, and then Democrats used parliamentary tricks to prevent Republicans from killing the agreement. Then Obama transmitted million of dollars to Iran without approval of Congress. And then Democrats turn around and try to act as if this executive agreement carries the full force of an international treaty as specified in the Constitution. The second and more profound problem is that Iran has no intention of fulfilling this agreement and they never did. It is purely a manipulation by Iran, Obama and Kerry knew that, and the theocrats in Iran announced it. Only naive people and those in denial believe that Iran is dialing back its nuclear weapons intentions. Iran’s leaders plan to dominate the world.
Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.
A senior advisor to the Leader of the Islamic Revolution said Iran has no intention to enter into a treaty with the United States, but it is engaged in nuclear talks with the major powers “within a predetermined framework” to reach an agreement to protect national interests.
 
Pointing to US President Barack Obama’s remarks that a prospective nuclear deal with Ian will not be “an official treaty”, Ali Akbar Velayati said, “We also are not that eager to make a treaty with the Americans… what is obvious is that Iran wants to protect its nuclear rights and wants to be able to use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes within the framework of international regulations.”
 
“Based on this belief and view, we have engaged in the talks with the P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) and Iran has never been seeking to conclude a treaty with the US or other countries.”
 
In addition, Velayati said, “In the future negotiations with the P5+1, which should be balanced and fair, we will call for the lifting of sanctions at the same time as Iran takes steps to (meet commitments) regarding its nuclear activities as laid out in the previous round of talks (in the Swiss city of Lausanne which led to a joint statement on April 2 outlining the key points of a final deal).

Schneiderman resigns

This is the same attorney general who colluded with Al Gore and other attorney generals in attempts to use the legal system to punish people, associations and corporations who are skeptical of alarmist claims about global warming.

Deplorable.
