Time 2013 and WSJ 2015: ‘Car of the Future’ Will Still Use the Internal Combustion Engine; Al Gore Hardest Hit

Posted on 31 January 2015

At the recent meeting of the world’s elites in Davos, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore and former Mexican President Felipe Calderon circulated a proposal to ban cars in all major cities in the world by dense-packing their layouts. The cost, as I noted on Monday: a mere $90 trillion (that’s right, trillion). It’s telling in a foreboding sense that the pair’s idea wasn’t laughed off the continent.

Enviro-nutty ideas such as these trace their origin to Gore’s 1992 book, “Earth in the Balance,” in which Gore called the internal combustion engine “the mankind’s greatest enemy.” In reality, it is arguably the greatest enabler of human progress in the world’s history. So readers should take some delight in articles appearing two years apart — one at Time.com, and another at the Wall Street Journal, where the authors predict that the odds seem to be in favor of the evil internal combustion engine continuing to outshine the enviros’ favored alternatives for at least the next couple of decades. Gore and his media enablers surely wail and gnash their teeth when such inconvenient items rear their scientific heads.

NYT Gins Up Poll as Excuse to Put ‘Climate Change’ on Front Page, Call GOP ‘Out of Step’

Posted on 31 January 2015

Not content with reporting the news, the New York Times on Saturday tried to manufacture its own, issuing a “climate change” poll with an environmental group, and putting it on the front page as news in order to push the paper’s own left-wing alarmist view of global warming.

American killed in Saudi Arabia terrorist attack – media silent

Posted on 31 January 2015

An American citizen was shot and killed in a terrorist attack in Saudi Arabia. Didn’t hear about it? That’s probably because the corrupt American media was too busy covering deflate-gate, snow and the usual pre-Superbowl crap. None of the Big Three networks’ evening newscasts on Friday covered the shooting of an American citizen in eastern […]

NY Times Correction Completely Undercuts Premise of Item on U.S.-Netanyahu Spat

Posted on 31 January 2015

Over at American Thinker, Thomas Lifson caught a damning admission the New York Time made in a correction to a Thursday piece by Carl Hulse and Jeremy W. Peters. The correction blew apart their write-up’s entire premise, namely that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was trying to make amends with congressional Democrats and having to explain why “the White House had been circumvented before he was invited to speak before Congress.”

Trouble is, the White House hadn’t been circumvented at all, as the correction clearly indicated (bold is mine):

28 Year Old Politico Reporter: “I can’t work the kind of hours I did when I was 24”

Posted on 31 January 2015

Politico Reporter Mike Elk is 28 years old working under a tremendous strain. As a result he is going early twentieth century retro  trade unionism to supposedly organize a 21st century blog, Politico. Here is young Elk taking a break from the front ranks of organized labor to complain of how hard he must struggle under the yolk of the Big Boss: “”I can’t work the kind of hours I did when I was 24.”

Geez, Take a Walk: Politico Labor Reporter Wants to Unionize It Because Being 28 Is Hard

Posted on 31 January 2015

Yakov Smirnoff solves the People’s Cube on second try

Yakov_Oleg_600.jpg
Yakov_Oleg_600.jpg

Last night I went to see Yakov Smirnoff at the Lakeland Center in Florida. In addition to having discovered America, Yakov has now also discovered personal relationships, and presents his findings the way you never looked at it before. And now he has also discovered the People’s Cube.

Yakov_Oleg_Minds_at_Work600.jpg

I spoke with Yakov before and after the show. He was very warm and friendly, and when I gave him the Cube, he immediately figured out the concept and tried to solve it, but failed on the first try. But then, with the words “What would Putin do?” he finally got it right.

When I told him that his name and his jokes frequently come up on our website, he asked me for the URL and promised to check it out. We also exchanged a few words in Russian, but since he hasn’t used that language in a very long time (he came to the US in 1977 at the age of 26), we continued the conversation in an equally accented English.

At some point in his life Yakov took a break from comedy to get a degree in applied positive psychology, and now he teaches a course on The Business of Laughter at Missouri State University and Drury University. He also runs his own Yakov Smirnoff Theater in Branson, Mo., and goes on occasional comedy tours.

The show was hilarious, but also informative and heart-warming; not openly political, but with a rather conservative, pro-American vibe. During the show Yakov spoke of his friendship with Ronald Reagan, and how he was asked to write jokes for the speech Reagan gave in Moscow.

On a large screen, a picture was …
