Publisher’s Note: Mrs. Beta gets destroyed on the Collectivist News Network of all places. He struggles with the simplest concepts and I do wish that more interviewers were this tough on following second- and third-order effects.
Just saw a great video with David Friedman and I highly recommend watching the whole thing. I’m paraphrasing but he is a self-affirmed anarchist and he was asked when the return of government in an anarchist society would become inevitable and he responds when the usual suspects decide that theft is the sole means of enriching themselves in an organized fashion.
In tragic news, a custody battle in Texas saw a judge declare that the transitioning of a seven-year-old boy to a girl through chemical and physical mutilation is the prerogative of the mother despite the protests of the father. What makes this even more disturbing is that a seated jury agreed to this. Read the article and the comments. I am sure that many an American Muslim believing that Sharia and genital mutilation of women will be able to use this as case law precedent in weaponizing their institutionalized physical assaults will smile upon this jurisprudence.
The mother is a pediatrician. This is evil child abuse. Do no harm, indeed. This is moral madness.
Per the AGW alarmists: I am greatly enjoying the public reaction to the Extinction Rebellion loons. Take notes…
In other news, my youngest son is stationed in southern Calizuela right now and the enlightened government there insists that you fill out a very intrusive accredited victim group form when getting auto insurance. My solution was elegant, mark every single selection and mail it in. This may work for the census next year…

“When an issue becomes a vital part of a political agenda, as is the case with climate, then the politically desired position becomes a goal rather than a consequence of scientific research.”
“Scientists who dissent from the alarmism have seen their grant funds disappear, their work derided, and themselves libeled as industry stooges, scientific hacks or worse. Consequently, lies about climate change gain credence even when they fly in the face of the science that supposedly is their basis.”
“Controlling carbon is a bureaucrat’s dream. If you control carbon, you control life.”
“Future generations will wonder in bemused amazement that the early 21st century’s developed world went into hysterical panic over a globally averaged temperature increase of a few tenths of a degree, and, on the basis of gross exaggerations of highly uncertain computer projections combined into implausible chains of inference, proceeded to contemplate a roll-back of the industrial age.”
“What historians will definitely wonder about in future centuries is how deeply flawed logic, obscured by shrewd and unrelenting propaganda, actually enabled a coalition of powerful special interests to convince nearly everyone in the world that CO2 from human industry was a dangerous, planet-destroying toxin. It will be remembered as the greatest mass delusion in the history of the world – that CO2, the life of plants, was considered for a time to be a deadly poison.”
– Richard Lindzen
I am always astonished at the climate alarmist nonsense that has prevailed. And make no mistake, every government on Earth has a vested interest in peddling, promoting and funding this scientifically illiterate nonsense because the collectivists and government supremacists know this may be the only remaining entry virus for communism in modern societies.
Remember that Prince Charles of Englazuela, the retarded love child of centuries of inbreeding, predicted the world would have to be saved in 96 months from his pronouncements in July 2009. He was wrong of course. Like much of the Royal family, he probably has to be reminded to remove his clothing before stepping into the bathtub.
CEI did a wonderful compendium of failed envirus predictions.
Here’s a thought experiment (we love these in the scientific community): if it turns out that the AGW case of climate warming is actually the converse and the planet is entering a cooling phase per Milankovitch Cycles and projected Grand Solar Minimum extrapolations, will the watermelons recommedn against government doing everything?.
Will the rush to communism reverse and the alleged “smokestack” capitalism be stoked to moderate the weather?
Smart folks want to know….
And it’s not a 97% percent consensus (and Professors Nuticelli, John Cook, et al from Australia is Patient Zero for AGW manufactured consensus). Cook divined that number from 11,000 abstracts reviewed and discovered that one third of the abstracts to include non-scientific papers; he separated out of the two third that made no mention of climate change to achieve his twisted maths.
It’s why my favorite sign to loft at an AGW alarmist protest reads:
“STOP PLATE TECTONICS NOW!.”
AEI published this splendid list of failed and idiotic predictions to put this in perspective.
