The Current Texas Flooding is grabbing media coverage and
spawning yet more man-made global warming and climate change AGW speculation.
It’s noteworthy that the media doesn’t give their audience
any reflections or comparisons to historical events, thereby implying that each
event is really “new record-breaking news” when in fact very few current weather events are
setting new records.
The most significant component is that we now have 330
Million people and have become a “target rich environment” for every natural
There were only 120 Million people in US in 1927.
Most destructive river flood in the history of the U.S.:
1927: 500 killed;
Mississippi, May 1927 the river
was 80 miles wide.
The sheer landmass involved in this flood makes it incredibly noteworthy.
Across Illinois, Missouri,
and Louisiana, some 16 million acres of
land (26,000 square miles) were inundated with water from the mighty Mississippi.

Within minutes, Orozco lay

It’s interesting that MSN
and AP who have been super quick to highlight and emphasize the color of police
involved in black-person incidents totally forgot to mention these facts in
The media's dual standards for
highlighting race-bating incidents clearly is on display in yet another case of
Police Officers killed in the line of duty.
I missed this story in my
local news, perhaps because Obama, Holder, the FBI the DOJ and all the rioters
were no where to be seen.
Something about: If a police officer falls in
the line of duty and the media isn't interested – was the officer’s life important?
MSN AP: "Shot by a man"
In contrast, FoxNews did
print the appropriate picture:
God bless Officer Orozco,
her family and all the other officers who serve in harms way to help ensure we
can live in peace in our homes and on our streets.

Graduates of the Coast Guard
Academy, defenders of our
shores and ports and ocean facilities around the world, in this time of Jihad
against us by the Radical Muslim Terrorists of the world, I, as your
Commander-In-Chief want you to focus on Global Warming and Climate Change.
I have no data or scientific
facts to show you the danger. In fact,
the preponderance of the data shows no significant global warming or climate
change due to nature or man and I'm certainly not going to show you that!
But, I have on the government payroll many
hundreds of “scientists” with dozens of computers cranking out unverified predictions
of bad things to come.
These programs cannot
explain the past three hundred years since the end of the little ice age, nor
the last one hundred years of less than one degree warming nor can they explain
why there has been no change in the global temperature for the past 18 years.
However, believe me and my
grant-dependent “scientists”, we know
what the future holds -- we don't need facts -- we have a consensus!
Just don’t look behind our “consensus”

Really? Historically that has been one of the “paths to citizenship”
for thousands of young immigrants.

Pg 1: Morrissey admits he’s father of out-of-wedlock child
Pg 8: Morrissey to run for Va Senate
This Tabloid Yellow Journalism by the Richmond Times should
not have been “picked-up” by the RT. It
highlights and flaunts:
rape by a 50 year-old Democrat Va Delegate with an underage girl working in
under oath about his crime.
bragging about the resultant “fatherless”
claiming his intentions to run for Va Senate
However the most disturbing part of this gross mess are the
staged photos that the RT apparently felt compelled to share with their
readers. Photos that are clearly
intended to spark negative emotions by the viewers.
And, the media claims thy are working hard to make things
better in our culture!
Who chooses this stuff off the wire-services? How sad is that!
