2 arraigned in deaths of Forest Grove sisters

2 arraigned in deaths of Forest Grove sisters: 2 arraigned in deaths of Forest Grove sisters

The science is settled.........

Except when it isn't.......

Global warming has been temporarily 'paused' according to a group of scientists, who attribute this interlude to climate fluctuations and a more restrained sun. 

No shit? Who would have thought that the sun would have some impact on global warming?

But apparently there are other things that impact the climate as well.

The first is that global temperatures, which rose significantly in the 1990s, have only risen very slightly since 1998 - which has been used by sceptics to question climate change and the models used to measure it.

However, climate fluctuations such as El Niño and its counter-phenomenon La Niña have been shown to have caused the high in 1998 and following cooler years respectively. Climate models cannot predict when exactly these fluctuations will happen.

The other reason for the lower temperatures is weak solar irradiance. As well as fluctations in the climate, changes in the intensity of solar irradiance have been showing unusual patterns. The researchers also say that volanic eruptions, such as Eyjafjallajökull in Iceland in 2010, "have increased the concentration of floating particles (aerosol) in the atmosphere, which has further weakened the solar irradiance arriving at the Earth's surface".

So wait, you mean that El Nino's, La Nina's, also have an impact on climate as well?

But you can't figure what the impact is, but you are certain that humans have the most impact?

And you call me a denier?

I've got an question. Since apparently the science is settled. Why is the government spending resources investigating something that's "settled"?

I'll bet if the funding gets cut off, things will be less "settled"

Another must read

Mark Steyn on the militarization of the police............

The most basic problem is that we will never know for certain what happened. Why? Because the Ferguson cruiser did not have a camera recording the incident. That's simply not credible. "Law" "enforcement" in Ferguson apparently has at its disposal tear gas, riot gear, armored vehicles and machine guns ...but not a dashcam. That's ridiculous. I remember a few years ago when my one-man police department in New Hampshire purchased a camera for its cruiser. It's about as cheap and basic a police expense as there is.


Who lost the cities?

A must read from Kevine Williamson from NRO.

Money passage..........

The more progressive the city, the worse a place it is to be poor and/or black. The most pronounced economic inequality in the United States is not in some Republican redoubt in Texas but in San Francisco, an extraordinarily expensive city in which half of all black households make do with less than $25,000 a year. Blacks in San Francisco are arrested on drug felonies at ten times their share of the general population. At 6 percent of the population, they represent 40 percent of those arrested for homicides. Whether you believe that that is the result of a racially biased criminal-justice system or the result of higher crime incidence related to socioeconomic conditions within black communities (or some combination of those factors) what is undeniable is that results for black Americans are far worse in our most progressive, Democrat-dominated cities than they are elsewhere. The progressives have had the run of things for a generation in these cities, and the results are precisely what you see.

Jason Riley on Ferguson

Meet Amanda Curtis

Do what the cops tell you

Years ago, I was at a party that was starting to get out of hand.

I was watching something on TV with my buddies and a cop walked in a yelled "everyone under 18 get the hell out of here right now".

That was all the warning I needed.

Unfortunately, as I was heading out the door, some ass hole behind me started bitching about private property, pigs and rights.

I wish I knew what happened to that guy because the last I saw him he was on the ground eating carpet fiber.

Me?  I walked away without a problem.

As I get older, I feel more like Kevin Kline bitching out William Hurt in the Big Chill for disrespecting the cop who pulled him over.

I haven't posted on the Ferguson dust up because I don't know that happened that day.........Just like every one of the talking heads who have an opinion on this event.

But it's following a similar pattern to all the other events like this.

Media puts out unconfirmed reports. People jump to their respective sides.

The Bobblehead Reverends show up and make things even more polarized.

Eventually, this cop will face some show trial but because the witnesses have been tainted by their prejudices, multiple investigations contradicting each other and media attention, there will be no ability to prosecute this cop which will start a mini riot still to come.

The moral to the story, do what the cop tells you and you walk away.

The Euro's are learning their lesson

Will we learn from their mistakes...................

The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants to create a parallel society within the Netherlands.
A new integration bill (covering letter and 15-page action plan), which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads: "The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role. With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society."
The letter continues: "A more obligatory integration is justified because the government also demands that from its own citizens. It is necessary because otherwise the society gradually grows apart and eventually no one feels at home anymore in the Netherlands. The integration will not be tailored to different groups."
The new integration policy will place more demands on immigrants. For example, immigrants will be required to learn the Dutch language, and the government will take a tougher approach to immigrants to ignore Dutch values or disobey Dutch law.
The government will also stop offering special subsidies for Muslim immigrants because, according to Donner, "it is not the government's job to integrate immigrants." The government will introduce new legislation that outlaws forced marriages and will also impose tougher measures against Muslim immigrants who lower their chances of employment by the way they dress. More specifically, the government will impose a ban on face-covering Islamic burqas as of January 1, 2013.

Practice what you preach

Living with the demagoguery of democrats would be tolerable if the media would just call out the hypocrisy every once in a while........

For example, African-American staffers on Democratic campaigns were paid 70 cents for each dollar their white counterparts made. For Hispanic staffers in Democratic campaigns, the figure was 68 cents on the dollar. 

And a recent study by PowerPAC+, funded by a major Democratic donor, revealed that less than 2 percent of spending by Democratic campaign committees during the past two election cycles went to firms owned by minorities.  

Political operative Michael Gomez Daly worked on two congressional campaigns in 2012 with similar budgets. On one campaign, Daly, who describes himself as “a very light-skinned Hispanic,” was brought in as a field director, primarily for his skills as a Latino operative who could reach out to the Hispanic community. On the second campaign, where they did not know he was Hispanic, “I just came in as ‘Michael Daly,’ instead of ‘that Latino operative,’” he said. “Right off the bat they offered me twice the amount for the same job.”


Protecting illegals costs American lives

By not deporting illegals ASAP, we leave them to commit these crimes against citizens.............

Dickinson police say an officer tried to pull over a Dodge Durango for a traffic violation. When the officer turned on his emergency lights, the driver sped off, reaching 100 miles per hour. About 1.3 miles later, the suspect disregarded a stop sign and struck a Honda Accord that was headed eastbound on FM 646. The impact so intense, the Honda Accord was pushed into a ditch and knocked down power lines. 

The driver involved in a police chase that ended in a fatal crash was identified as 23-year-old Juan Garcia Ahuezoteco.

There were four people in the Honda Accord, Rafael Guerrero, 41, Alejandra Guerrero, 38, Gilberto Ortega Jr., 25, and a 15-year-old teenage boy. All four died on scene. Family members say the boy was the son of the Guerrero.

So why was Ahuezoteco so eager to flee the police?

There were two men killed in the Durango. The driver was identified as Juan Garcia Ahuezoteco, 23. His passenger was Alejandro Molina. It has been determined that Ahuezoteco had an outstanding felony warrant for Driving While Intoxicated. Ahuezoteco's girlfriend, who says she is pregnant with his child, says she was on the phone with the suspect as he fled from police.

"He was freaking out," the woman told Eyewitness News.

She says he was afraid of getting deported and told her he loved her before the crash. 

So these folks killed can thank President Obama for their Dream Act.
