AP’s Borenstein Notes No Hurricanes for 9 Years; Didn’t Global Warming Alarmists Say There’d Be More?

Posted on 31 May 2015

In a report on the relative infrequency of hurricanes in the U.S. during the past decade nationwide, and many decades in certain coastal areas, the Associated Press’s Seth Borenstein detected a problem.

The problem is that those who contend that human-caused global warming is ruining our planet believe that hurricane frequency should be increasing, but it’s not. So Borenstein tried to cover his tracks (bolds are mine throughout this post):

Baltimore Sun Reporter, in Covering City’s Request for Riot ‘Disaster’ Assistance, ‘Forgets’ That Mayor Condoned Looting, Held Back Police

Posted on 31 May 2015

In case you missed it, the City of Baltimore and the State of Maryland have requested disaster relief assistance from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to recover costs incurred during that city’s April riots. You read that right.

Yvonne Wenger at the Baltimore Sun predictably buried the lede in her May 26 story’s third paragraph, giving uninitiated readers the impression that applying for FEMA assistance after a riot is something that is routinely done. (Perhaps, given the quality of today’s journalists, she really believes that herself.) More critically, she forgot to remind readers that the city arguably deserves no help at all from any outside source, because the vast majority of the rioting’s damage would have been prevented if Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake had done her job.

David Brooks: ‘Obama Has Run An Amazingly Scandal-Free Administration’

Posted on 31 May 2015

One doesn’t know what to do with the rubbish which follows beyond noting it and hoping that the ridicule which results will somehow and in some way have some kind of impact.

Despite 6-1/2 years of horrid governance and dozens of acknowledged scandals, several of which a few of the credible remaining outposts of liberal thought have actually agreed are scandals, David Brooks, the New York Times’s resident fake conservative, asserted on Friday’s PBS NewsHour, as if it’s an indisputable fact, that “President Obama has run an amazingly scandal-free administration, not only he himself, but the people around him.”

Hollywood ‘Diversity’? White Actresses Getting Asian Roles

Posted on 31 May 2015

Hollywood sure has a “strange” way of showing they are taking a step in a direction toward more diversity. Case in point? Doctor Strange, set to debut in November of 2016, has a high profile role for an Asian character.  This character is known as “ the Ancient One” – a “mystical mentor to Doctor Strange, of Tibetan extraction and more than 500 years old.  His powers include astral projection, teleportation, and the ability to create energy blasts.”  

Since the beginning, Hollywood has sorely lacked diversity when it comes to providing leading or supporting roles for Asians, so this sounds like the perfect role for an Asian actor, right? Wrong.  Their (almost positive) choice?  Tilda Swinton. Swinton is a white lesbian female actress…not Asian, and not male.  Apparently that counts towards diversity in Hollywood. The same sound came when the new movie Aloha featured a half-Asian woman played by …Emma Stone.
