Clinton, the media, the revolution

Perhaps Clinton’s yacking has to do with pulling Tony Blair back in line for the upcoming “revolution,” which will be built upon the “global warming” meme?

As Clinton’s also involved with this deal, it’s good to recall that many Clintonistas either went into “journalism” or married “journalists” when they were done with the White House.

If you own the press, you own enormous power – the Clintons have always known that. And if you’re building a revolution on the basis of dubious science…all the better if you literally own the paper, outright. And note, the press never refers to him as “former” President Clinton. Never.

Illusions upons illusions. Misdirection upon misdirection. It’s how they work, these days. The Clintonian method.

Watch him closely – he is all over the place, in a new country, a new town, everyday – flown everywhere on private jets – he is the Prince of the Air, looking down upon the earth, surveying it all and laying claim, now India, now New Zealand, now Indonesia, now London, now Greenland. Moves are being made. A game is afoot.

    “Moves are being made. A game is afoot.”

    I think so, too, Anchoress.

    I think Bill wants something. I don’t like to see how addicted he is to power. It’s an afrodisiac for him. He must have it, like Gollum and The Ring.

    Bill wants his Precious.

    Of course, an obvious liberal rag, under control of the DLC and the Clintonistas like Scientific American, is probably not the best of evidence, nor is the professional journal Science, since the people who publish in it work in those hotbeds of revolution, the Universities.

    Be that as it may, I know what it took to convince me. I have watched first and last frost dates in my town for forty years. My parents had extensive spring gardens, always under threat of frost, and grew fall chrysanthemums for show, also a major frost risk.
    /
    I have seen the expansion of the growing season here by 3-5 weeks on the average, I have seen the change in bird migration times and patterns, and I have watched the increase in the number of midwinter thaws from one, at best, to now, commonly, three. But, then, I’m just an unsophisticated and rustic sort of fellow, and not the best judge of matters like this.

    Oh, for crying out loud! I’m a literary bloke myself and I know what “Prince Of The Air” means. Do you seriously think that about Bill Clinton? Or that Tony Blair has no mind of his own and is under Clinton’s magic and evil control?
    /
    By the way, I’m completely bewildered by your “this deal” link. I couldn’t find anything about Clinton owning a newspaper anywhere in it. Did I miss something? Or is that just some more Clinton misdirection?
    /
    Apparently the revolution is world-wide, also, and his evil power extends of dozens of sovereign nations.
    /
    Ah,me!

    Well, I just checked out your new post, and I guess you really do mean Prince of Air.

    You can show me all the “data” you want. I can go online and find conflicting “data.”

    Are things melting? sure. Has it ever happened before? Yep.

    I don’t believe it is not a natural phenomena.

    The “this” is this. Obviously, I’d screwed up a link, but if you want to be sarcastic, that’s fine.

    Yes, I did say Prince of the Air and it was sort of a pun. Take it to mean whatever you like. As I said, there are things seen and unseen. Are you going to deny that?

    The salesman’s work is never done, and Bill is selling, selling, selling.

    And if you want to laugh at me go right ahead; it won’t be the first time you’ve done it – I’ll still be your pal.

    Is it any surprise that Michael Moore found his ‘voice’ during the Clinton Adminitration?

    Deliberate deceit as a legitimate form of political expression.

    Nice.

    Thanks for re-establishing the link. I had heard about the split in Knight-Ridder and the bids for the second half, but I had no idea Bill was involved.

    As to global warming, I’ll repeat my question without the witty trimmings: What would it take to convince you? This is worth thinking about. There are so many things we take on trust from science because we cannot check them ourselves. I meant what I said when I talked about applying my own observation to the problem.

    The impeachment of science, any science, for what are clear political points of view has profound implications for how we are going to run this country and whether we run it off of a cliff.

    I once heard Bill O’Reilly cut a guest off because what he was presenting was “liberal facts”. Are their really liberal facts and conservative facts? Is there really a liberal science to be contrasted with a conservative one?

    One of the real errors we make is to think of ourselves as beyond nature. We aren’t. We are just as much part of nature’s process as anything else. So, yes, this global climate change is “natural”.

    But, natural or not, in certain governmental quarters it simply doesn’t exist, and we do not have to do anything to respond to it. So I presume that from the government’s point of view there really is “liberal science” to which it need not pay attention.

    As to the rest, since someone has brought up Tolkien, I’ll quote a line from Frank Herbert’s Dune where the hero is speaking of his sworn enemy: “He has human shape, and so deserves human doubt.”

    It is very easy to miss the point of the tragedy: Gollum is not Sauron.

    I recall Mark Twain writing about seeing oranges growing along the Mississippi. During his lifetime they no longer could grow there. The temperature grew too cool for the trees to grow. Why? Because of Climatic Cooling. Here in Florida, the Mango crops were quite extensive, but no longer. Why? Because the Frost Line has moved South. In fact, there are other crops that are no longer grown in Florida because the climate has grown a touch too …. cool.

    Sound like Global Warming, Joseph? Nope. Just part of the immense Climatic Cycles which move along centries, and millenia, not just years and decades. The sky is not falling, regardless of what the MSM is saying.

    Now the comment above is precisely what I mean. Is Scientific American a political publication [i.e. part of the "mainstream media"] simply because it reports scientific observations uncomfortable to Republican politics?

    Anyone should think very carefully before they answer this. An answer of “yes” has some very grave implications.

    Follow the money trail Joseph. There’s lots of money to be made by hawking global warming gloom and doom. As the Anchoress said, there is as much evidence supporting global warming as there is evidence supporting global cooling. The lack of evidence to support man-made causes to global warming is being covered up and/or glossed over. Consider this, about a thousand years ago, climate supported Nordic farming colonies in Greenland. It would take quite a bit of global warming to reproduce that kind of change. Mankind survived it thousands of years ago… the odds of survival are even better now.

    You still miss my point. What money is Scientific American or Science making out of it that they would not make otherwise? No conclusion in science is 100% certain–science deals only in probabilitites. All trust in science, any science, is provisional.
    /
    I repeat my question: What evidence would it take to convince you of global warming?
    /
    If you cannot or will not answer it this means one of three things. You have either not thought through the issue with any care, or you are holding to a conclusion so tightly that no amount of evidence will convince you.
    /
    This is simply prejudice, and in the case of global warming [or "global cooling" if you prefer] it is prejudice to serve a particular political hobbyhorse. It is the assertion that any inconvenient evidence is “liberal evidence”.

  • smmtheory

    That’s just it Joseph, I’d accept evidence that wasn’t tooled to fit the theory. More so, the evidence I’ve seen from the opposite opinion is more convincing because it talks about ratios of atmospheric components that are produced by man compared to atmospheric components that are naturally occurring or are already there rather than just whole gigantic numbers intended to overwhelm the imagination that have no context or anecdotal temperature evidence that is inconclusive and again, out of context when not compared to anything other than a double handful of recent years.

    Go ahead and accuse me of not having thought about it. That’s kind of like the scientists jumping to global warming conclusions on what little evidence they have.
