Salon’s Article Bashing the Bible for Bad Writing Was So Poorly Written They Retracted It

8th February 2018

Left-wing website Salon retracted an article titled “Why is the Bible so badly written?” Thursday because it was too poorly written to meet their editorial standards.

The news outlet came under fire on social media after publishing the article Thursday morning, in which the author Valerie Tarico claimed the Bible is littered with “awkward constructions” and “weak character development.” Salon shirked responsibility for the piece by claiming it had been republished to Salon.com from a partner website.

Losing Billions of Dollars in a Single Day Is Hard to Fathom for Anybody

6th February 2018

Read it.

But especially hard for ‘journalists’, apparently.

NBC news reporter Scott Budman tweeted the following on several billionaires:

Had a rough day? Mark Zuckerberg lost $3.6 billion today. Jeff Bezos lost $3.2 billion. Google’s founders lost $2.3 billion, each. Bill Gates lost $2.2 billion. (Source: Bloomberg)

I can’t imagine waking up one morning and having billions of dollars gone. It’s not like a rough day at the casino when you might lose a few hundred or a grand. That sucks, but you move on pretty quickly. Losing billions? How does a person even react to that. I understand they’re all still billionaires, but it’s mind-boggling to even envision.

The author of this article cites this as if it were a thing. It isn’t.

To say that ‘Jeff Bezos is worth $X billion’ is common but misleading — a more accurate statement would be: ‘Based on the price per share of Amazon stock at moment A, the stock  we think that Jeff Bezos owns (we can’t be sure) we estimate to be worth $X billion if he could sell it at that same price, which he probably couldn’t.’

These guys didn’t lose shit. What happened was that the most accurate available estimates of their net worth changed based on changes in the unit used for that valuation — but they are in exactly the same position today as they were yesterday and the day before.

We saw examples of the same sort of low-IQ thinking back in 1987, when a lot of people asked Bill Gates ‘How does it feel to lose $X billion?’; Bill, of course, who still owned the same portion of Microsoft’s capital stock as the day before, rightly treated at them as if they had grown two heads. He understood what was going on and they obviously didn’t.

This sort of thinking is one of the chief defects of ‘journalism’ as practiced today. ‘Journalists’ may have a college degree and work in an office, but their knowledge of the real world is in many respects vastly inferior to that of the average inhabitant of a trailer park. (This is a big reason why Trump so utterly flummoxes the inhabitants of the DemLegHump Media. He knows what he’s doing, because he’s done it before; they don’t, because they’ve never seen it done … and because they’ve never seen it done, it looks like something randomly plucked from the Take A Chance crd pile in a Monopoly game.)

I have very little respect for ‘journalists’ unless and until they demonstrate that they can count to 20 without taking off their shoes. That seldom happens.

More Faking of the Surface Temperature Record

6th February 2018

Read it.

We have written many times about the fact that the Earth’s surface temperature record has been so badly corrupted that it is impossible to say whether claims like “2017 was the third-warmest year since thermometers became common in the late 19th century” are true. Temperature records are under the control of agencies like NOAA, which in turn are run by people whose careers are heavily invested in the catastrophic anthropogenic global warming theory.

This is a conflict of interest. It is as though I, when I was a lawyer representing parties in lawsuits, had the option of rewriting the documents on which the case is based, so as to favor my client. Would I have been able to resist that temptation? Well, maybe. But NOAA doesn’t. Over and over again, we find that the temperature records from decades ago have been changed, with no explanation and no transparency. We have documented this fact around the world, and always the “adjustments” are in the same direction–temperatures from decades ago are lowered, and recent temperatures are raised.

Bad data make bad models, and corrupt data make corrupt models. I don’t accept the existence of Global Warming any more than I accept the existence of the Soviet Union as a Heaven on Earth for Workers and Peasants, for exactly the same reason: An assertion supported only by tendentious lies is a tendentious lie.

Auburn Beating Shows Racist Ideas Can Inhabit Bodies of Any Color

6th February 2018

Read it.

Someone stopped by my desk to see if I had a thought about the fact that Julian Pailate Tuimauga, who is charged with committing a hate crime against a black man in Auburn, isn’t white.

What I wish everyone would realize is the racism sprouting from white-supremacist ideology is so pervasive that just about everyone is exposed to it. Anyone can act in ways that support white supremacy or that reflect the view of the world it perpetuates.

When the justice system’s workings lead to a Latino, Asian or black cop fatally shooting someone without just cause, that person is just as dead as if a white officer fired the shot.

So apparently white people are to blame for one POC beating on another POC.

Well, nice to have that cleared up.

CNN’s Cuomo Argues President Trump’s Immigration Policy Proposal is Racist

31st January 2018

As Scott Adams has pointed out, a rational immigration policy will necessarily have a ‘disparate impact’ because the places that have the highly intelligent and highly educated people we want tend to be full of white and yellow people, while the shitholes that have the people we don’t want tend to be full of black and brown people. That’s just a fact.

To backtrack from ‘disparate impact’ to racist (which is a matter of intent, not impact) is one of the intellectual smoke-and-mirrors jobs that the SJW Left has gotten away with for years. They need to be called on it every time it’s trotted out.

Is President Trump a Stealth Postmodernist or Just a Liar?  “How should we explain the fact that President Trump got away with making 2,140 false or misleading claims during his initial year in office?”  How should we explain the fact that nobody in the ‘mainstream media’ bothered to run a tally on Obama’s (or Clinton’s) lies during a year in their administration? Can we spell ‘double standard’? I’m sure we can.

California governor rebukes Donald Trump in warning of ‘immediate and genuine risk’ of climate change, nuclear weapons and poisoned politics  And I’m sure Donald Trump will give it all the consideration it deserves. *snicker*

John Kerry predicts Trump administration ‘won’t last the year,’ according to report  I predict that it will last longer than John Kerry. Let’s see which of us is right.

Virtue Signalling at its finest. It doesn’t do a damned thing, but we’re all so ‘woke’ we can’t stand it.

Malala Yousafzai says men like Donald Trump should ‘think about their daughters and mothers’ when considering how to treat women  Except that there’s no evidence that Trump has anything to worry about, aside from Chattering Class talking points. Malala might want to do some thinking for herself for a change.

MSNBC’s Review of Trump Debut in Davos: ‘Uninformed,’ ‘Strange,’ ‘Nonsensical’  Because TRUMP! That says it all.

FLASHBACK: 30 Years Ago Tonight, Dan Rather’s Failed, Fake News Ambush of Bush

25th January 2018

Read it.

Ol’ Dan is still around, his deficiencies having been swept under the run of the Memory Hole by his accomplices in the DemLegHump Media, kind of like the black sheep of the family who did a little time for possession but keeps showing up at family events.

His phrase ‘fake but accurate’ is the governing metaphor for the Fake News industry.

Watergate Journalism: The Seeds of Our Discontent

24th January 2018

Read it.

The dog-whistle message received by young wannabe journalists was that they should take sides, as did the highly praised Post, wearing invisible jerseys while presenting themselves as objective arbiters of truth. As part of its long campaign reviling Nixon’s cover-up, the Post has perpetuated its own dishonest cover-up for these same 45 years.

Today’s media investment in partisanship and ‘fake news’ all comes from the Watergate era. Everybody who graduates from journalism school wants to be another Woodward/Bernstein.

Dem Senator Blames Trump For Dems Shutting Down The Government

Number of Anti-Muslim groups in US increased three-fold since Trump launched his Presidential campaign, say experts  And so, of course, it’s All His Fault. (I have an idea: How about Muslims stop blowing people up? Think that would have an effect on the number of anti-Muslim groups? I suspect it would.)

DACA latest: Chuck Schumer calls off Mexico border wall deal with Trump over Dreamers repeal  Guess he doesn’t want a deal after all. (Cue DemLegHump Media blaming this setback on Trump.)

Greenfield Admits CNN Acts Like Trump Indictment ‘Imminent’ In Russia Probe  Although what he would be indicted for is unclear, since ‘collusion’ isn’t a crime.

Donald Trump bracing himself for second book exposing White House chaos after surviving ‘Fire and Fury’  Betcha he isn’t. One of the most tedious aspects of media derangement is the habit of assuming that some other person is going to do EXACTLY THE SAME THING that the writer would do in whatever circumstance is being discussed.

MSNBC Guest Compares Trump To George Wallace  I don’t suppose anybody reminded him that Wallace was a Democrat.

In the Trump Era, the New York Times Sunday Review Needs a Hug…or a Counselor

SAG Awards: Kristen Bell begins event with Melania Trump dig  Of course she did. The Hunt for Heretics and Sinners extends unto the third generation.

Bill Kristol: Trump’s Shutdown Behavior Is Too ‘Partisan’ And ‘Personal’  Watch Bill Kristof turn into a RINO before your very eyes.

Trump and Republicans a ‘Danger’ to Children and ‘Non-White People’  Well, don’t be a child or a non-white person and you’ll be fine. If I guy can ‘identify’ as a girl, surely a non-white person can identify as a white person. If you wish upon a star, makes no difference who you are, when you wish upon a star your dreams come true. Ask any Democrat.

Trump aides believe president suffers from ‘Defiance Disorder’ of doing whatever they tell him not to do, claims new book  They keep looking for some excuse to paint Trump as a robot. The fact that he has successfully run complex businesses for forty years just goes right over their head.

Bernie Sanders Blames Koch Brothers for Government Shutdown

Yup, theirs were the deciding votes.

When Bernie was a young lad, I wonder whether his mother told him that the Koch Brothers would get him if he wasn’t a good boy. It certainly seems that way.

Inequality Gap: Growing Gulf Between Rich nd Poor Leaves 42 People With Same Wealth As World’s 3.7Bn Worst Off

22nd January 2018

Read it.

The assumption is that (a) you ought to care about this and (b) you ought to drop everything else and do something about this.

My immediate response to such articles, a favorite in the Modern Media, is ‘So what?’

Come to think of it, that’s also my immediate response to OH MY GOD GLOBAL WARMING WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE.

I’ll bet there’s a relationship there….
