In the news today President Trump hints that the U.S. may curtail aid to Pakistan and warns Iran about human rights violation. Finally we hear about how NASA “adjusts” its temperature readings to support the theory of global warming while records for cold weather are being set around the country.


Trump: ‘No More’ Aid to Pakistan, ‘They Have Given Us Nothing but Lies and Deceit’

 President Donald Trump lashed out at Pakistan on Twitter just a few minutes past 7:00 a.m. Eastern time on New Year’s Day, expressing frustration at Islamabad’s inadequate efforts against terrorism and implying that U.S. foreign aid will be terminated as a result.

NASA’s Rubber Ruler: An Update

 The NASA/GISS temperature record is not actually a record of recorded temperatures. It is simply the most recent version of NASA’s adjustments to older adjustments. It is not thermometer readings. It is models all the way down.

How did warming accelerate if we are looking at the very same years?

Apparently, the Earth is getting warmer faster than it was five and a half years ago, but not because of actual recorded thermometer readings in those last five and a half years. It is getting warmer faster because NASA adjusted the data to show faster warming.

When you go to the NASA website, you can download temperature anomalies “1880-present.” But those data change every month. NASA adjusts it. You cannot find any older versions. NASA makes available only its most recent version. And NASA does not explain how it adjusts the data. You must simply trust it.

United States flag in winter

Last day of the year and like everyone in the U.S. we are preparing for some very cold nights coming this week. Looking back we can see that President Trump and Conservatives had some very significant wins in 2017 – see the first story below on “The 7 Biggest Conservative Wins of 2017.”

Also don’t forget President Trump’s great success in appointing Federal judges in 2017 – the 2nd story below. But not everyone is happy – read the last story below on the still bitter “Never Trumpers.”

Wishing everyone a Happy New Year and may our wins in 2018 be even bigger!


The 7 Biggest Conservative Wins of 2017

President Trump Winning

 

 “Making America Great Again” isn’t going to happen overnight. But, 2017 has surely been a good start. So, before leaping into the new year, let’s take a look back at what Republicans have accomplished.

Judicial Picks, Including – But Not Limited to – Justice Neil Gorsuch …

Pulling Out of the Paris Climate Agreement …

Significant Blows to ISIS …

National Concealed Carry Reciprocity Passes in the House …

Formally Recognizing Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel …

Tax Reform …

Economic Uptick …

Simply put, despite what some may want you to think, this year hasn’t been all that bad. Here’s to hoping 2018 is even better.

Trump’s Historic Success Appointing Federal Judges in 2017

 Even President Donald Trump’s critics cannot deny his historic success in 2017 in appointed judges to the Supreme Court and lower federal courts, exercising one of the greatest powers of the presidency in a way that will create a lasting legacy shaping the destiny of the nation.
President Trump’s clearest single victory on the judicial front was the successful nomination and confirmation of Justice Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court. It began with the unexpected death of Justice Antonin Scalia in February 2016. For voters, the issue of the courts went from the abstract to the concrete, and judicial appointments became a red-hot issue.

Rick Manning: ‘National Review Crowd Can’t Admit They Were Dead Wrong About Donald Trump’

Never Trump at National Review

 “The National Review crowd can’t admit they were wrong, dead wrong, about Donald Trump,” said Rick Manning, president of Americans for Limited Government.
Manning made his comments during Friday’s edition of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Rebecca Mansour.

“[Donald Trump] is the most conservative president in my lifetime, and I include Ronald Reagan,” opined Manning, reflecting on National Review’s ongoing framing of the 45th president as lacking conservative bona fides.

National Review’s 2016 “Against Trump” article derided then presidential candidate Donald Trump as a “philosophically unmoored political opportunist who would trash the broad conservative ideological consensus.”

Manning reflected on National Review’s expressed contempt for “white working class” communities, recalling the magazine’s 2016 cover story by Kevin Williamson which described predominantly white and rural communities as “dysfunctional and downscale.”

President Trump and War?

Again today the more interesting articles were on Townhall where most all front page news is directly or indirectly about President Trump. First Pat Buchanan weighs in on possible consequences of war on President Trump’s chances for re-election. Secondly Leah Barkoukis covers President Trump’s impromptu interview with the New York Times. Finally Matt Vespa highlights 10 sins of the American intelligence community and it anti-Trump activism (and probably criminal violations).


Will War Cancel Trump’s Triumphs?

President Trump

 Asked what he did during the French Revolution, Abbe Sieyes replied, “I survived.”

Donald Trump can make the same boast.

No other political figure has so dominated our discourse. And none, not Joe McCarthy in his heyday in the early ’50s, nor Richard Nixon in Watergate, received such intensive and intemperate coverage and commentary as has our 45th president.

Whatever one may think of Trump, he is a leader and a fighter, not a quitter. How many politicians could have sustained the beatings Trump has taken, and remained as cocky and confident?

But it is in the realm of foreign policy where the real perils seem to lie. President Trump has been persuaded by his national security team to send Javelin anti-tank missiles to Ukraine, for use against the tanks and armor of pro-Russian rebels in Donetsk and Luhansk.

Trump Weighs in on Russia Investigation, AG Sessions, China and More in NYT Interview

 In an impromptu interview with the ‘failing’ New York Times, as he likes to call it, President Trump spoke about the Russia probe, his Attorney General Jeff Sessions, China being caught illegally delivering oil to North Korea, and more.

Speaking to a reporter at his golf club in West Palm Beach Thursday, Trump said he’d “been soft” on China regarding trade to hopefully encourage the country to rein in North Korea’s weapons program. That may change, however, after U.S. spy satellites captured images of China illegally oil to North Korea.

Sharyl Attkisson Shares The 10 Times The Intel Community Ran Amok

 Since the 2016 election, the intelligence community has been under greater scrutiny—and for good reason. The leaks emanating from this cadre of professionals in D.C. was not exposing government malfeasance from the Trump administration, but classified information that was putting America’s national security interests at stake. It seemed to have been done to hamstring a new administration.
