Socialist death squads have murdered over 5,000 dissidents in Venezuela

From The Independent:

Venezuelan special forces have carried out thousands of extrajudicial killings in the past 18 months and then manipulated crime scenes to make it look as if the victims had been resisting arrest, the United Nations said on Thursday in a report detailing wide-ranging government abuses targeting political opponents.

Special Action Forces described by witnesses as “death squads” killed 5,287 people in 2018 and another 1,569 by mid-May of this year, in what are officially termed by the Venezuelan government “Operations for the Liberation of the People,” UN investigators reported.

Laying out a detailed description of a lawless system of oppression, the report says the actual number of deaths could be much higher.

“Mainstream” news jobs have declined 25 percent in 10 years

Great news! The Hill reports that U.S. newsroom employment has fallen 25 percent in a just a decade. “Mainstream” journalism (meaning journalism which supports government and is supported by government) is in steep decline.

Meanwhile alternative news is flourishing. Consumers have more access to information than ever before.

In 1998 NASA published a graph showing 1934 as the hottest year on record. NASA’s more recent graphs have dropped temps for 1934 by more than one degree Fahrenheit

Data analyst Tony Heller frequently compares current government temp charts with charts published by the same government agencies in the past.

Heller notes that “In 1998, NASA showed 1934 as the hottest year on record in the US, and declining temperatures for the rest of the century. They have since rewritten the data to eliminate the post 1930s cooling. 1998 used to be one degree Fahrenheit cooler than 1934, and now it is warmer.”

GOVERNMENT-SUPPORTED UNIVERSITIES ARE NOW GENERATING MORE JUNK SCIENCE THAN REAL SCIENCE

Eduardo Franco, a professor of Medicine at the Canadian government’s McGill University, reports that “for the first time in history, scientists and scholars worldwide are publishing more fraudulent and flawed studies than legitimate research—maybe ten times more.” See here.

CRISIS IN LEGITIMACY

Almost every modern research university is hopelessly dependent and focused on government (especially, in the U.S., federal government) support.

Professors at major universities are overwhelmingly aligned with pro-government advocacy and socialist ideology. Many professors in the social sciences display Marxist artwork and iconography. They speak the language of government in their daily lives and regard anti-government statements as heresy.

Today’s western adults are likely to have been educated from first grade through graduate school without ever being exposed to any profound anti-government thought. See here.

Research critical of government is shunned in many academic departments. At Montana State University in 2017, pro-government extremist faculty voted to prevent the creation of a research institute funded by the libertarian-leaning billionaire Koch brothers. See here.

Another climate hoax collapses: coral reefs do not die in warming water–they thrive

Claims that global warming will kill off the coral reefs of the oceans are found to be untrue. See here.

It turns out coral thrives in warming water and are more likely to die in cold water.

Oh, and the oceans appear to be in a COOLING trend.

Images destined to join other icons of the climate doomsday scam


Last month, almost every major newspaper in the world published photos of Greenland sled dogs skating through ankle-deep water atop Greenland’s supposedly-disappearing ice sheet.

Some journalists were almost apoplectic in their accompanying stories: CNN wrote that “The incredible photo . . . quickly went viral, destined to join pictures of starving polar bears, shrunken glaciers, stranded walruses and lakes turned bone dry in the pantheon of evidence of our ongoing climate catastrophe.”

But now the Danish scientists who took the photos explain that the photos show nothing unusual about Greenland’s ice conditions. Similar photos have been taken over many generations.

Ironically, the image reveals the resiliency of sea ice around Greenland, which is as much as FOUR FEET THICK below the meltwater.

In general, ice in the Arctic has been GROWING FOR A DECADE. See here. And ice in the Antarctic is near all-time record highs.

Piles of stolen mail found in deceased U.S. postal worker’s storage locker

Another U.S. Postal worker has been found to have stolen mountains of mail. The U.S. Postal Service maintains an unconstitutional monopoly over 1st class letter delivery; and the “Service” protects its monopoly with brutal tactics.

The USPS enjoys every possible advantage in the market. It pays no corporate, property, or income tax. It owns some of the most prestigious real estate in the world. It charges more than twice what any private firm would charge for the same services. It maintains massive surveillance files on its unknowing customers.

Yet the USPS loses about $5 billion annually. It grossly overpays its employees, and thousands apply for every announced job opening.

Now, investigators in Hawaii have discovered that a deceased Postal worker kept a private storage locker filled with stolen first-class mail.

In 1844, the U.S Government violently destroyed the private mail company of this University’s namesake, Lysander Spooner. Spooner’s mail company provided cheaper, better postage services than the U.S. Postal Service, and the USPS responded to the competition by arresting Spooner’s deliverymen and banning them from railroads.

Heavily-armed federal tactical teams ultimately raided Spooner’s mail offices and shut down Spooner’s operation.

1000Frolly: Ice Core Records May not be an Accurate Measure of Historic CO2 Levels in Earth’s Atmosphere

New research and discovery is causing some scientists to question whether modern CO2 levels are really much different today than CO2 levels in the past.

Today CO2 levels in the atmosphere have reached some 411 parts per million. This is something like 4 one hundredths of one percent of molecules in the atmosphere. Many scientists rely on measurements taken at Mauna Loa, Hawaii since 1958. Prior to the placement of the Mauna Loa observatory, however, atmospheric CO2 levels were not systematically measured.

Consequently, scientists have looked to “proxies” to try to determine CO2 levels in Earth’s past. The most commonly consulted proxy is the content of ice cores obtained near Vostok, Antarctica.

Scientists obtain the cores by drilling down through Antarctic ice and then examining the gas content of layers of ancient ice. From this technique, some scientists have claimed that CO2 levels were generally stable across time at around 200 to 220 ppm until the Mauna Loa observations.

But there are grounds to challenge the accuracy and validity of the CO2 levels found in the ancient ice core samples as a measurement of atmospheric CO2 levels of the past.

A video by “1000Frolly,” an Australian climate scientist, points out that the ice core records may not be valid for measuring CO2. The ice core records do not correlate with other known proxy methods for measuring atmospheric CO2. (For example, records of fossilized plant stomata, which are tiny holes in plant leaves through which CO2 enters plants, seem to indicate CO2 levels were generally quite high (and quite variable) in the past.

“1000Frolly” suggests that the “Knudsen diffusion effect” may account for the seeming low levels of CO2 found in ice core samples. This effect occurs when pressure from ice pushes CO2 and other gasses to escape from the ice.

Big Journalism laments: almost no one will voluntarily pay for pro-government “news”

In the digital age there are more reporters, bloggers, and information providers than ever before. And almost all of it is free.

Big Journalism–the government-supporting (and supported) “mainstream” news complex–is beside itself with anger and frustration.

Every investigation into major news sources such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, NBC, ABC, CBS and other outlets has found that much “mainstream” news is secretly funded or supported by government agencies or officials.

Although such alleged news sources may occasionally report critically on a specific government official, the news sources almost never criticize the intrusive structure of government itself.

Now a Reuters Institute poll and study of news consumers finds that very few are likely to ever voluntarily pay for the pro-government “news.”

The poll may have been the first of its kind to find that the most critical, discerning news readers are the most likely to reject the “mainstream” news agenda.

About a third of British leave voters–those who courageously voted for the Brexit in England in 2016–indicated they lost trust in mainstream news sources when they realized that much mainstream news content simply wasn’t true.

Sowell: I’ve never met an economist who advocated a “trickle down theory”

It is one of the most frequent anti-free-market arguments made by pro-government extremists: that libertarian free-market advocates believe in a “trickle down theory” of economics—a notion that easing taxes (“giving tax breaks to the rich” in the words of government trusters) will let some wealth trickle down to the poor.
According to legendary economist and author Thomas Sowell, the “trickle down theory” strawman is one of the most effective smears by pro-government extremists. Sowell, one of the earth’s most foremost authorities on economic theory, says he has never met a single economist who actually believes in such a theory.

“Certainly none of the innumerable fellow economists I have encountered in my 88 years ever advocated any such theory. Nor am I aware of anyone else, in any other walk of life, who has done so.”

“The next time someone talks about the ‘trickle-down’ theory, ask them to tell you where specifically you can find the writings, videos, or any other evidence of someone advocating that theory.”
