(T)he word "heritage" will be repeatedly invoked. It would be derelict to not examine the exact contents of that heritage. this free government all white men are and of right ought to be entitled to equal civil and political rights; that the servitude of the African race, as existing in these States, is mutually beneficial to both bond and free, and is abundantly authorized and justified by the experience of mankind, and the revealed will of the Almighty Creator, as recognized by all Christian nations; while the destruction of the existing relations between the two races, as advocated by our sectional enemies, would bring inevitable calamities upon both and desolation upon the fifteen slave-holding states....

We do not think that whites should be slaves either by law or necessity. Our slaves are black, of another and inferior race. The status in which we have placed them is an elevation. They are elevated from the condition in which God first created them, by being made our slaves. None of that race on the whole face of the globe can be compared with the slaves of the South. They are happy, content, unaspiring, and utterly incapable, from intellectual weakness, ever to give us any trouble by their aspirations.

Among us the poor white laborer is respected as an equal. His family is treated with kindness, consideration and respect. He does not belong to the menial class. The negro is in no sense of the term his equal. He feels and knows this. He belongs to the only true aristocracy, the race of white men.

This is the service, sacrifice, and heritage" that Nikki Haley spoke of in the words of those who lived it.

Cannot wait till 2020 when House dems are up for reelection and they have nothing to show to their constituents that they have accomplished. Great ammo for their opposition for those seats.

Another dipschitt who ignores the multiple threads of facts on how prolific the Democratic majority House has been in passing legislation which dies in the Grim Reaper controlled US Senate.

House Democrats have passed nearly 400 bills. Trump and Republicans are ignoring them.

Legislative paralysis gripped Capitol Hill well before impeachment started.

Democrats in the House have been passing bills at a rapid clip; as of November 15, the House has passed nearly 400 bills, not including resolutions. But the House Democratic Policy and Communications Committee estimates 80 percent of those bill have hit a snag in the Senate, where Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is prioritizing confirming judges over passing bills.

Congress has passed just 70 bills into law this year.

You really should buy a clue and seek accurate news sources other than right wing agitprop. The Democrats are going to bury the GOP in 2020 because all they're done is ignore Trump's transgressions and defended the undefensible while never even trying to do the people's business in the Senate.

You guys are desperate.

I'll wait to see how many of those jobs stick around in February to March.

Meanwhile, consumer confidence is dropping and consumer debt...well.

We're living a lifestyle we can't afford, which has helped float the economy.

Question is, are those jobs enough to keep people somewhat solvent or are we going to see the bottom fall out when people stop spending?

"We find new methods informed by progressive learning to remove bias. "

If that were the case, you would apply increased weighting on weather stations that have been the most compliant (double readers, no change in location, no change due to rapid development in the area resulting in an urban heat island effect. But that is not what climate 'scientists' do. They given greater weight to the global readings despite that record not even being anywhere close to complete until the 1960's with the oceans completely uncovered until Argo was implemented. So, I call BS on that rationalization.

"100 years ago, they relied on mercury."

Again, you are correcting the temperature readings now from 100 years prior based on them using mercury? Really? I don't think you even understand how the temperature has been corrected. Nothing to do with mercury, has to do with applying 'smoothing' records where you discount actual readings. So, while the actual temperature records that are reported on your local news are the same as recorded at that point in time, you climate 'scientists' are saying - "no, it was not 106 degrees in Kansas on that day, it was actually 95 degrees. It is ridiculous.

"Now we have ensembles of sensors within a single unit, we quantify the variance, and find aggreement through methods like Kalman filters, quantile mapping, et al. Modern methods are quantitative and objective.

The fact is that NONE of that is required now as you can take satellite readings. Further, we have Argo and the weather balloon data to know the changes at the atmospheric levels. And those numbers simple do not support the underlying model of global warming.

Here is a graph showing the data manipulation plotted.

Now, before slaughtering the source, we are not even talking about their 'analysis' of the data - it is simply the plots of the raw data and the manipulated data.

Now mind you - I am not making any statement on the validity of Global Warming - I am just factually stating that the case for it using DATA ANALYSIS is sorely lacking and our models have been a disaster in forecast accuracy.

Do Non-Citizens have Constitutional Rights?

[snip] Nowhere in the first 10 amendments to the Constitution is the word "citizen." Often it is written "The right of the people..." The Bill of Rights protects everyone, including undocumented immigrants, to exercise free speech, religion, assembly, and to be free from unlawful government interference.

You're welcome.

"The conversation about corruption in Ukraine was based on compelling evidence of criminal conduct by then VP Biden," Giuliani tweeted, referring to Joe Biden, the intended target of "investigations" Trump and Giuliani pressured Ukraine to announce.

To empirically grounded observers, this will blow up a key Trump defense: that in conditioning official acts on getting Ukraine to announce the investigations he wanted, he was correctly concerned with cleaning up corruption there.

The Biden corruption narrative Giuliani has worked to validate has been thoroughly debunked. But Giuliani can make it true by saying it, and by producing fake "evidence" backing it up.

This amounts to more than conventional political lying. You see this in Giuliani's crucial next step: the creation of a disinformational narrative hermetically sealed off from outside facts can magically transform even a demand for investigations into Biden from a corrupt demand that a foreign power help rig our election by smearing a political opponent into a virtuous demand for investigations into "corruption."

Making this narrative "true," via the triumph of disinformation, is at the core of this entire scandal. It is why the White House meeting and hundreds of millions of dollars in military aid were conditioned on getting Ukraine to release statements validating that narrative with disinformation, along with another fictional narrative that Ukraine, not Russia, interfered in 2016, in collusion with Democrats.

Meanwhile, Giuliani is literally producing a fake "documentary" that will "prove" these theories. Trump's attorney general, William P. Barr, is traveling the world to try to validate parts of the Ukraine-2016 lie, and he's even preparing to dispute the Justice Department inspector general's conclusion that it's nonsense.

You cannot watch House Republicans, or Sean Hannity, rant about this bundle of theories without concluding we're witnessing something very different from routine political lying here.

I have to call BS on a lot of this nonsense. First, the current temperature anomaly is 0.55C for the world (not very believeable) and 0.22C for the continental USA. The USA is at least defendable as there is actual data being collected - but the world record is just utter nonsense of non compliant temp sensors, etc destroyed even further via data smoothing.

But this is the part of this article I liked best regarding 'the science is settled':

"Hausfather found that most of this overshoot was caused not by a flaw in the model's basic physics, however. Instead, it arose because pollution levels changed in ways Hansen didn't predict. For example, the model overestimated the amount of methane"a potent greenhouse gas"that would go into the atmosphere in future years. It also didn't foresee a precipitous drop in planet-warming refrigerants like some Freon compounds after international regulations from the Montreal Protocol became effective in 1989"

So, the model is WRONG but we have excuses why - but no real proof mind you - but we suspect these things to have influences. It is utter trash of a forecast regardless of how many excuses you want to throw out about its quality. The problem with the forecasts is that they don't understand the feedback loops so warming is always lower than predicted. So, to keep up the scare tactics, they are still manipulating the historic data to 'cool the past'.

Seriously, it is nearly 100 years since the temperatures were recorded. The have been analyzed for the last 40. Why on earth are the climate 'scientists' still decreasing the actual recorded temperatures in climate record? What possible justification is there for continually manipulating the data from the past?
