FBI Pushed Junk Science on Mass Shooting Trends

We were assured mass shooting occurrences were increasing. We were fed junk science. As you read this short article, think: Climate Change science. From the Patriot Post: Last fall, we noted that the FBI used bogus stats in its pre-election mass shooting report. Researchers counted some mass shootings that weren’t “mass” at all, and entirely omitted actual mass shootings that occurred early in the carefully selected timeframe. All of it was an effort to show an increasing trend of “gun Read more […]

Media Pushes Junk Science for the Cause of Abortion. What Else?

The scientific evidence for fetal pain after twenty weeks is overwhelming but the media is happy to assure us of junk science. You have to enjoy the irony. The same people who assure us that a man is “really” a woman and vice versa are also happy to report that only weird “anti-abortion advocates” believe that a fetus suffers pain while being ripped apart in an abortion. The Blaze has published a truly devastating piece by James Agresti, the president of Just Facts: “Media Promotes Read more […]

BBC Wants to Publish “Disappearing Redhead”-Type Stories without Pushback

The “disappearing redheads” story is here: “In pictures: Climate change could make red hair a thing of the past if Scotland gets sunnier.” Redheads could become extinct as Scotland gets sunnier, experts have claimed. The gene that causes red hair is thought to be an evolutionary response to the lack of sun in Scotland. Redhead colouring allows people to get the maximum vitamin D from what little sun there is. Only one to two per cent of the world’s population has red hair but in Scotland Read more […]

Developing World Refuses To Impoverish Itself For Climate Change Scam

The St. Louis Post/Dispatch reports some excellent news today. Despite superstitious hysteria about the man-made global warming hurling a typhoon at the Philippines, the leaders of the developing world are not stupid. The UN “talks” about how to deal with global warming are, according to the headline, on the “brink of collapse.” In my view, it can’t implode soon enough. The two-week talks were supposed to lay the foundation for a 2015 climate deal in Paris that countries have agreed should Read more […]

Read The Wrong Book 2; Enforcement Of National Security Religion?

I’ve never done this before (that I can remember) but I’m offering a follow-up post to my Read The Wrong Book; Get Tracked By Government entry. As I think about what I read, I’m realizing that I (and the McClatchy story) missed the real point here. The McClatchy piece, written by Marissa Taylor, was understandably centered on the fact that the personal information of thousands of Americans was shared without any real cause among Federal agencies. With the NSA being in the new, thanks to Read more […]

Yet Another Study ‘Proving’ Global Warming Goes Poof

If you believe the New York Times (golly, who doesn’t other than people who read?), then global temperatures are the highest they’ve been in 4,000 years. Perry White must be rolling over in his grave. The fictional Daily Planet regularly ran stories about a flying extraterrestrial and his battles with aliens, robots, monsters and evil geniuses, yet the — again, fictional — staff always placed more emphasis on getting the facts straight than the New York Times seems to these days. It’s not Read more […]

Lying Propaganda: You Are Better Off Dead

The headline says it all: “A sick world: We live longer, with more pain and illness.” Yes, poor, poor, better-fed, longer-living us. Let’s all have a pity party and then figure out how to return to the good old days. What is initially obvious simply from reading this story is that it doesn’t prove or even address the headline. There is no attempt made to prove that, in the past, we lived shorter lives with less pain and illness. There is good reason for the writer to ignore such a claim, Read more […]
