“Making public policy on the basis of what science “suggests” is not much wiser than summoning a fortune teller. This is a problem for the governing class, which has accepted as fact since the 1997 Kyoto Protocol the premise of a direct correlation between human-caused carbon dioxide and an overheated planet. The engine for global warming advocacy, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, now must explain that global warming’s hiatus. A portion of the U.N.’s fifth assessment draft report, due for release Sept. 27, is expected to pull back warnings to more closely reflect actual temperatures. Their credibility is at stake”

A climate scientist, comfortable in his government digs, nevertheless has a lot in common with the palm reader at the mall, hunched over her crystal ball between Nell’s Nails and Wanda’s Wigs. Both make their money from predictions, and as any high-end soothsayer could tell you, the more outlandish the prognostication, the more readily the client can be parted from his cash. Speed is essential, because the game ends when the mark realizes he has been played the fool. That’s why the weather clairvoyants who have been predicting global warming doom — “climate change” is the current name for it — are starting to sweat.

Bureaucrats being who they are, the government handouts will continue long after everyone is onto the game. But a new study in the journal Nature Climate Change found that of 117 computer models used to make climate predictions over the past 20 years, 114 overestimated global warming. The models predicted an average rise in the earth’s surface temperature of 0.30 degrees Celsius per decade; the actual temperature increase was less than half that. The study noted that the “predictive inconsistency” over the past 15 years “is even more striking.” The simulations predicted four times more warming than actual readings showed.

In 2007, climatologists predicted that rapid melting of sea ice in the Arctic would leave the top of the world ice-free by 2013, prompting hysterical prophecies of melted ice that would raise the worldwide sea level, inundating coastal cities and drowning cuddly polar bears. NASA satellite photos of the Arctic Ocean during the summer of 2012 showed the ice was indeed disappearing. Snapshots of the region last month revealed that a chilly summer has expanded the ice sheet by nearly a million square miles. The polar bears, never actually cuddly, are nevertheless in the pink. The scientists are red in the face, or should be.

THE NEW YORK TIMES AND THE ONE STATE DELUSION PF IAN LUSTICK JEROLD AUERBACH “Two-State Illusion” was an especially catchy title for the lead Opinion column in the Sunday The New York Times Review section (September 15). It was about time, I thought, after years of reading endless Times columns and editorials about the urgency of just that outcome, with Israel and Palestine living amicably side-by-side in wonderland.

US PLAYS MONOPOLY, RUSSIA PLAYS CHESS DAVID GOLDMAN Americans see individual pieces of geopolitical real estate in isolation, like hotels on the Monopoly board, while the Russians look at the interaction of all their spheres of interest around the globe. Syria is of no real strategic interest to Russia, nor to anyone else for that matter. It is a broken wreck […]


Mary McNamara could not have been awake when she decided to review “The Life of Muhammad” that was aired on PBS, or she might have realized that this was pure propaganda, designed to inspire hatred against the Jewish people. Had she paid attention, she would have realized all the lies declared against the State of Israel, and the misinformation spewed against her people. The film was propaganda at its worst, and is certainly a sample of civilizational warfare. PBS was terribly wrong to run it yet again, and the journalist exacerbated the injustice with her review.

The series spread the Palestinian narrative that is meant to delegitimize the sovereign State of Israel. It played down the six million Jews who died at the hands of the Nazis, in order to play up their own false victimhood. Note that the Arabs could have had, but refused, a state of their own when the Ottoman Empire was divided into mandates; their strategy was to usurp all the land even if they lost the wars fought against Israel. They have continued to refuse Israel’s willingness to negotiate a peaceful settlement. Islamists who follow their Qur’an are commanded never to assimilate and have peace – and this is obvious in every country of the world to which they have immigrated.

How could it be that McNamara did not hear the hatred spewed by those interviewed, and still praise the show! Sabri, during the dialogue, endorsed suicide bombers, “It is legitimate, of course, as long as it plays a role in the resistance,” as the body count increases. Islamists are responsible for 21,570 deadly terror attacks since 9/11/01. While Israel thrives and her people strive for the welfare of all in technological, scientific, medical and other advancements, the Palestinians have become the leading producer of terrorists. The Islamists have turned Africa into a continent of burning Christian churches with their worshippers, and Sweden into the rape capital of the world.

A Catholic convert to Islam, Green, even denounced the hero of the Republic of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, who created a government and parliament to represent the people, abolishing the horrific Islamic laws and replacing them with a secular system, compulsory education and education for women. Considered a pioneer of national liberation and defender of peace, Ataturk was honored by the United Nations and UNESCO. Clearly, this film encourages a very dangerous supremacy, Islamism, terrorism, and pure hatred of all but their own Muslim sect.

Both the film and the review were a disgrace. I believe that, at the very least, McNamara, the L.A. Times, and, above all, PBS, owe a considerable retraction to the public. Garbage belongs in a landfill, not on television.

In one month, Assad has risen from outlaw butcher to partner in disarmament. […]

The UNRWA Dilemma by Timon Dias

If the entire Palestinian Authority leadership lives off an international welfare check that arrives only because the conflict still exists, there isn’t much incentive for ending the conflict. The Palestinian people, according to a recent study by the Jerusalem Institute of Justice, have received per capita, adjusted for inflation, 25 times more aid than […]

DEROY MURDOCK: THE MAN WHO KEEPS NEW YORK SAFE- NYPD Chief Ray Kelly is a Bulwark Against Islamic Terror.


That word best describes New York City police commissioner Ray Kelly. In an increasingly juvenile nation, Kelly’s granite temperament can be a tad daunting. But if you knew what Kelly knows, you might not smile much, either.

“The threat of terrorism is as great, if not greater, today than it was before the World Trade Center was destroyed,” Kelly recently said. “Do not think for a second that al-Qaeda and those who share its ideology have forgotten about New York,” he continued. “Images of the World Trade Center and scenes of the City are regularly displayed on jihadist websites and al-Qaeda publications. Its propagandists call on followers in the United States to take up the battle at home and use bombs, guns, and poison to indiscriminately kill.”

In a breakfast speech at the New York Hilton that made last Monday tougher than most, Kelly told the Association for a Better New York and the Council on Foreign Relations that America’s financial and media capital remains militant Islam’s target of choice.

“In the mind of al-Qaeda and its acolytes, New York is the symbol of all they hate about America and the West,” Kelly added. “In just the past ten months there have been several plots with a nexus to New York City.”

• Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 23, arrived from Bangladesh on a student visa. He conspired to blast Manhattan’s Federal Reserve Bank last October. On August 9, he received a 30-year prison sentence.

• Raess Alam Qazi and Sheheryar Alam Qazi, two Pakistani-born brothers, were nabbed in Florida last November 29 after plotting to detonate theaters and restaurants in Times Square.

• NYPD undercover efforts prompted the arrest of Justin Kaliebe, 18, as he boarded a jet for Yemen, allegedly to join Ansar al-Sharia, a.k.a. al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Kelly observed, “There’s little doubt that his handlers would have sent him back here to their number-one target, New York City.”

• An unnamed, Iranian-trained al-Qaeda agent met a conspirator here. Among other objectives, they planned to attack a train between New York and Canada. So much for the myth that Sunni al-Qaeda and Shiite Iran will not cooperate to kill Americans.

• Just days after allegedly bombing the Boston Marathon last April, killing three people and wounding 264, the Tsarnaev brothers drove towards Manhattan with pipe bombs and explosive pressure cookers. Had their hostage not escaped, Kelly explained, “They would have arrived in Midtown in time to launch a devastating attack at the morning rush hour.”

“Again,” Kelly emphasized, “these all are events in the last ten months.”

Kelly has led the NYPD into becoming what Heritage Foundation national-security scholar Cully Stimson calls “the best city police department in terms of counterterrorism in the USA.”
