Good. Thank you, Your Grace! It’s always nice when someone of such eminent ecclesiastical authority confirms from on high something which many of us long suspected: that the Establishment really just does not have a ‘tinker’s’ clue – and that that’s why we were so right to vote for Trump and Brexit. If Welby had wanted to play a clever game, what he would have done in his speech to the General Synod is keep resolutely schtum about his position on contentious political matters.
Archbishop Welby Sure, many of us could have predicted where his politics probably lay: he is, after all, an Old Etonian and a former corporatist stooge (yes, oil industry – but most of them swing left, I’m afraid), evidently gifted with the emollience and the career-safe views which are the only way a churchman can climb up the greasy poll of the Church of England these days.
Economic Systems: The alarmists of Global Warming punditary keep telling us of their concern about global warming and how it is all about man’s stewardship of the environment. But we know that meme is not true and that there has been a concerted global agenda in play, within the Progressive polity over the past couple of decades, to use the Global Warming meme as a stalking horse to bring down Western economic systems. A senior United Nations official has now openly confirmed this long held suspicion. In the past we have had individual climate scientists make the same claim, even former members of the IPCC, but never has a senior member of a UN specialist agency tasked with administering the climate change agenda, been so candid and truthful.
At a news conference in Brussels, Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of U.N.’s Framework Convention on Climate Change, admitted openly under questioning, that the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism. This brief moment of clarity and truth surprised those delegates present with its openness and honesty. Then in case this open admission was widely reported outside the ranks of Progressive climate activists, the ranks immediately closed and the whole event was conveniently swept under the rug, with little media exposure from a terminally partisan Main Stream Media.
“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said.
Writing in Bloomberg News today, Eli Lake comes to a similar conclusion and adds a good deal of background in a fine piece of reporting. Flynn, he concludes, was just the appetiser: the knives are now out for President Trump. The fake news media is in a feeding frenzy, including this attack on Kellyanne Conway and this bill of indictment of the Trump Administration from the Washington Post. Without full access to all of the facts one can’t evaluate the White House decision to let Flynn go, but the practical result of the decision will be to escalate attacks on the Trump White House, not reduce them. The Elitist Establishment, of the DNC, Beltway pundits and elements of the RNC, is a wounded beast fighting for its existence in the era of the ‘non-politician. This is a take-no-prisoners, no-quarter-asked-or-given war.
How come no-one is accusing NSA Director Michael Flynn of taking bribes from Turkey’s dictator Recep Erdogan? Not long ago, they did. Last November 18, Commentary Magazine’s Noah Rothman called Flynn a “dubious choice” for the National Security Council because his consulting company had a Turkish client, adding that Flynn’s views on Turkey raised a “conflict of interest.” Flynn had published an article in The Hill on Nov. 8 warning that America’s dalliance with the messianic Turkish Islamist and alleged coup plotter Fethullah Gulen might undermine the country’s relationship with NATO, at a time when Russia was giving Turkey the full-court press.
The first full spectrum US based ‘Red Flag’ exercise involving the new F-35 appears to show that 5th Generation aircraft are lethal against Gen 3 & 4 aircraft. Early results came in from the US Air Force’s realistic, challenging Red Flag air combat exercise — and it looks like the F-35 slaughtered the competition.
This is brazen, hilarious and spectacularly misleading. No one has done more damage to “climate data” in the past three decades than the corrupt, politicized activist scientists who are now afraid that they may be neutered or booted out of office by the incoming administration.
One of the many shocking revelations of the 2009 Climategate emails was that in some cases the raw temperature data had been destroyed or lost by the scientists whose job it was to maintain it. The notorious Dr. Phil Jones of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia admitted that they had not kept “the original raw data” for reasons of “data storage availability”.
