The Left? Seething with apoplectic rage. The right? Happy and optimistic. Patricia McCarthy – “Among the many, many things that starkly define the differences between the Left and the right, none is more wretched than the difference in how they approach life.”

“So infuriated by Trump’s victory and his many successes in office, these people are willing to become Stalinist thugs and hope no one notices. Nadler and Schiff are among the most distressed Democrats in Congress. They need mental health help. They are spinning themselves into oblivion. The American people are not nearly as stupid as they think. As it happens, there is an increasing number of people in Congress who actually are very stupid, shockingly ignorant of the Constitution and American history, and they are getting the most attention of late.

The Left, wallowing in its misery and acting out, is bringing about its own demise. Yes, leftists retain a radical, vicious base, those people who are triggered by red hats to violence.

Assembly bill calls for less punitive discipline plan in schools. Amelia Pak – “Nevada schools would implement a less punitive, more reflective form of discipline under a new bill heard by the Assembly Committee on Education on Tuesday.” i.e. Nothing learned from the Florida School Shooting episode. This is what happens when a state is Californicated. Fantasy rules.

Momo Hoax Shows America’s Susceptibility To Bullshit Goes Well Beyond Social Media. Karl Bode – “Americans’ susceptibility to bullshit is somehow seen as a new phenomenon, and Twitter and Facebook are exclusively to blame for American heads getting filled with gravel and disinformation.

“Ultimately the hoax spread to major news outlets that perpetuated it via “bothsideism” news coverage that failed to adequately explain that neither the game nor Momo were actually real. Take The Washington Post, for example …

The dysfunction was global, and was often aided with the help of celebrities, schools, and law enforcement officials.

Hoaxes wouldn’t work if we cultivated stronger critical thinking skills (read: improved education) and focused on finding ways to finance and reward quality reporting.

30 years of NOAA tide gauge data debunk 1988 Senate hearing climate alarmist claims. Larry Hamlin – “this update now providing 30 years of actual data since the infamous 1988 Senate hearings that launched the U.S. climate alarmist political propaganda campaign.

“In all more than 200 coastal locations are included in these measurements with more than 100 of these coastal locations with recorded data periods in excess of 50 years in duration. None of these updated NOAA tide gauge measurement data records show coastal location sea level rise acceleration occurring anywhere on the U.S. coasts or Pacific or Atlantic island groups.

Three decades after the politically driven speculation and conjecture offered at these 1988 Senate hearings NOAA tide gauge data fails to confirm or otherwise support these alarmist claims.

Note the “acceleration” specification. There has been a steady rise since at least the civil war times. Rebounding from the last glaciation and other natural causes are most likely behind it. The alarmists would have you believe that their should be a ‘hockey stick’ like curve to this and that hasn’t happened. Perhaps most telling is that, for them, this is an advocacy debate, not an effort to learn. Fantasy rules.
