“Civilization will end within 15-30 years…”

Back in the early 1970’s when I was a young person there was an effort underway at that time to make us all more ecologically aware. Little ‘ecology’ flags that resembled the American flag in that it had stripes began to appear everywhere. The field of blue and white stars on the U.S. flag was replaced by a big letter ‘e’, for ‘ecology’ on the Ecology Flag. It was put on shirts, hats, shoulder patches for an Army field jacket bought in a surplus store since actual military service was uncool, and on bumper stickers and coffee cups.

It was something that attracted disillusioned young people who had just seen our nation go through the troubling and self-destructive Vietnam War era. It was something they could latch onto. It was a time when “if it feels good do it”, “Peace and Love”, and “Green Power” were the catch-phrases.

Ecology became the new cool thing to be part of. Colleges began offering classes in ‘Ecological Sciences’, and ‘experts’ in ecology were created. So maybe we should enlighten ourselves and take a look at some of the predictions from back then on Earth Day 1970 by the “experts”:

Civilization will end within 15-30 years unless immediate action is taken against problems facing mankind” – Harvard Biologist George Wald

“It is already too late to avoid mass starvation” – Earth Day chief organizer Denis Hayes

“In a decade, urban dwellers will have to wear gas masks to survive air pollution. By 1985 air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half” –  Life Magazine

“The world has been chilling sharply for about twenty years. If present trends continue, the world will be about four degrees colder for the global mean temperature in 1990, but eleven degrees colder in the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us into an ice age” – Ecologist Kenneth Watt

These are just a few of the ‘Chicken Little’ predictions made by so-called “experts” forty-nine years ago, when America was at the time supposedly engaged in an ‘ecological crisis’. One that was going to lead to the extinction of the human race well before the twelve years that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (affectionately called AOC) recently said that we have left.

With much fanfare this past week New York Democrat Congresswoman AOC, released her ‘Green New Deal’ which she claims will eliminate America’s carbon footprint on the world. 

And since “Russian Collusion” isn’t going anywhere for the Democrats as a political issue, AOC’s Green New Deal will help define a new boogeyman for them, “Climate Change”.

If one takes a closer look at AOC’s plan it’s easy to recognize that it’s obviously something right out of a ‘Socialism 101 Class’ promoted at any of America’s ultra-liberal, Liberal Arts colleges. The place where rich young liberals go to feel bad about themselves.

The ultimate goal of AOC’s plan will effectively change America from a prosperous, technologically advanced and groundbreaking capitalist country, into a failed agrarian collectivist country where everyone will equally suffer and starve.

Not to mention turn us into a weak and vulnerable country subject to the domination and control by our enemies who certainly aren’t going to be giving up their airplanes. Or their air-polluting ways for that matter.

The one constant that you can find in any of the programs being promoted by Democrats and their new socialist party leaders is ‘misery’. Democrats are the most miserable people in America. They simply can’t enjoy life, and they hate watching anyone else enjoying it.

If you work hard and prosper and are able to improve your quality of life and lifestyle, then the Democrats resent you for it and want to take it away from you. 

They feel compelled to do everything they can to make everyone equally miserable. They’re envious that you’re happy and they’re so damned unhappy!

While AOC’s passion is certainly admirable, it’s also quite certainly misguided. She hasn’t a clue about what she talks. Nor do any of the advisors she relies upon. Man’s actual impact on climate change is still open for debate among many highly credible and qualified scientists and scholars.

The short answer is that the earth’s climate has been changing for billions of years. Change that is a natural part of the earth’s evolution as a planet. And the emergence of man may have little impact. But it sounds good. It’s a subject that can get young people fired up and politically involved.

Maybe the left’s newest little darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be happy with the fame and fortune she has gained as a result of her little hissy fits. She certainly contributes nothing useful, beyond providing some comic relief.

Or maybe she should just go back to doing something she knows a bit about, like bartending. Yeah, that’s the ticket! In her honor I think I’ll have a ‘Mudslide’, or maybe a ‘Hurricane’!

But I won’t be having any of her Green New Deal nonsense!

The Power to Shape the Narrative is the Power to Control the Outcome

Setting up the “Disinformation Board” and rolling it out under the DHS moved the “Overton Window” of conceivable action closer to the Marxist ideal of information control. While they’d have liked to “legitimize” their influence on media companies with edicts from a DHS Board, the ideological alignment of the major media companies is already working steadily to undermine…

Exposing Russia as a Military Fraud, Is China Next?

If we had looked closely in those intervening years, we could have seen the clues of their demise. Many in my field (CE/CI) did, but the world had changed. Politicians facing the prospective loss of political control through fear-mongering of something ⏤ Russia then and China now ⏤ limited any real responses that could have achieved a safe world with Russia in it…

Take a Look at the Positive Side of Anarchy

The only way to achieve liberty and peace is to restore law and order. And the only way to restore law and order is to literally crush the forces of evil. When that begins to happen, we do actually see the positive side of tyranny and anarchy. Conflict is a bedfellow of oppression. Therefore we must end the conflict and, in doing so, end the tyranny. Here’s the positive side of this war…

It’s a LONG-HAUL with COVID-19

The context is that about 50% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 develop post-COVID symptoms. Severe outpatients also are affected. Characteristic symptoms include headache, hearing loss, tinnitus, loss of olfactory function, sleep disturbance, muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, and chest or abdominal pain…

Be the One.

Be the One.

Be the one — no longer willing to huddle together in the helpless band — the one who dares to join the fight. Another will follow you and then another, and in a flash of time, that bleeding hulk of our nation — once the great light of liberty to the world, now barely flickering — will rise again to throw off the wolves like it has done before, sending them scurrying for safety…

Major Medical Mystery: Why Some People Despite Exposure Don’t Get COVID

A small fraction of Americans have escaped COVID infection. CDC uses a figure of 60% for those infected, while the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington says that 76% have been infected. The remainder may have escaped exposure or been exposed but escaped infection. The latter people are the subject of the medical mystery…

Correcting America’s Course Back to the Constitutional Rule of Law

The US Constitution must scrupulously be followed, especially by the judiciary. It is not for judges to make laws; it is for them to observe and rule on the constitutionality of issues before them. Their oaths, taken upon their confirmations, should include the understanding that their failures to follow judicial protocols would end in their termination…
