Save Queensland Rural Colleges

The Saltbush Club today called on the Federal government to slash spending on the climate alarm and climate conference industries and use the money to save the threatened Queensland pastoral colleges in Longreach and Emerald.

The executive director of the Saltbush Club, Mr Viv Forbes, said that for too long tax payers have watched federal agencies like CSIRO waste money on climate models that do not work, on carbon accounting that is not needed, on never-ending climate jamborees and on re-invention of “carbon farming”.

“They also watched in disbelief as ex-PM Turnbull in one afternoon found $444 M to donate to a small charity living off the Great Barrier Reef.

“Our great rural industries need trade-skilled people with relevant academic knowledge. They do not need urban academics in green uniforms who are hostile to rural industry.

“Farmers and graziers would prefer their taxes were spent on local colleges educating their sons and daughters in practical skills rather than sending them to the coast to learn how to smoke pot, drink beer, buy ice and follow the green religion.

“Our rural food bowl is far more important to Australia than all the tax-supported wind turbines, solar panels and climate propagandists put together.”

AP’s photo of the North Portico of the White House, hanging in as front page news ever since Congress left on recess during the partial government shutdown, attempts a pictorial message that America’s consummately HATED 45th has been left Home Alone for the duration of the holidays.

According to AP, President Donald Trump has been “cooped up” in the White House using an expression that usually describes chickens.

When Harry Cheated on Sally

When Harry Cheated on Sally, Psychological projection,
When Harry cheated on Sally he accused Sally of cheating. What? It is called projection. Psychological projection is a “psychological defense mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities by denying their existence in themselves and attributing them to others.” Projection is a method of blame shifting - Harry blamed Sally for what Harry did.

When Harry accuses Sally it is incumbent upon Sally to defend herself from the bogus charges. This cunning maneuver shifts the focus from Harry to Sally which is the underlying strategic objective of the false allegations. So, while Sally is busy defending herself Harry’s guilt goes unchallenged and he can continue to cheat. The best defense is an offense.

Let’s do follow the climate money!

Let's do follow the climate money!
The climate crisis industry incessantly claims that fossil fuel emissions are causing unprecedented temperature, climate and weather changes that pose existential threats to human civilization and our planet. The only solution, Climate Crisis, Inc. insists, is to eliminate the oil, coal and natural gas that provide 80% of the energy that makes US and global economies, health and living standards possible.

Failing that, CCI demands steadily increasing taxes on carbon-based fuels and carbon dioxide emissions.

Obamacare Coined Older “Units” Seen To Last At The ER

older person, going to an ER room
As an older person, going to an ER room in Northern Virginia is an exercise in costly futility unless you are on death’s door or are prepared to wait for endless hours while younger people are being treated for colds, high fever, bleeding fingers and toes, and other accidents which occur in the exercise of our daily human lives.

Few Americans know or care that the Affordable Care Act of 2010 or Obamacare had labeled those over a certain age as “units.” If patients are young, they probably think themselves immortal - they would never get old, therefore such “unit” labeling does not apply to them. The stark realization hits you like a ton of bricks - you have become an older “unit” that can be ignored because government formulas deemed your utility to society too close to zero.

Ice on Planet Mars

Who would have guessed that ice abounds on planet Mars?

That’s what made the news in recent days. There’s hardly any news service that did not cover the new finding by the European Space Agency’s (ESA) Mars Express mission, 15 years after it launched in 2003. Bob McDonald of the CBC radio show Quirks & Quarks even claims “A lake of water was found on Mars—and may be the first of many.”

The ESA’s message is titled “Mars Express gets Festive: A Winter Wonderland on Mars.”

Every year on the Ringside Politics program, we award our “Turkey” of the year during Thanksgiving and our “Champion” of the year in late December. This year, the “winner” of our turkey award was House Speaker Paul Ryan, a fitting choice for such a failed leader. However, our “Champion” award was a more difficult selection. During the past year, many fine people distinguished themselves in a positive way Finally, after input from our great listening audience, our decision was clear. For many reasons, including her grace and style under unrelenting criticism and pressure, First Lady Melania Trump was chosen as our Ringside Politics Champion of the Year.

Dawn of the Debacle

Dawn of the Debacle
As my favorite American philosopher, Yogi Berra once said, “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”  Nevertheless I’m going to take a stab at it.

Are you ready for the night of the long knives?  Pelosi, Schumer, and the rest of the Make America Miserable Again crowd have been trying to destroy President Trump by the death of a thousand cuts.  Every day 24/7 their poodle press in the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel has been trumpeting the lies and false accusations of their endless stream of fake news.  They follow the teachings of Joseph Goebbels that “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”  They operate on the wisdom contained in an old observation, “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”  And the Low Information Voters drink it all in and repeat it Ad Nauseam as their own personal opinion.

Is China a ‘Developing’ Country?

Is China a 'Developing' Country?

One of the largest militaries in the world, space exploration, nuclear power plants and bombs, ICBMs, stealth fighters, aircraft carriers, one of the largest economies, colonizing many places, etc. This is China, a developing country!

As a ‘developing country,’ China is demanding that the USA and other developed countries give China large sums of cash because the USA owes China and other developing countries for historic greenhouse gas contributions.  1

China has called on rich countries to ‘pay their debts’ on climate change at global talks, criticizing developed countries for not doing enough to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and provide finance to help poor countries do the same. 2

The January 3rd Squad Is Coming And They Don’t Play Nice

The January 3rd Squad Is Coming And They Don’t Play Nice
Keep your prayers and your perspective within easy reach because you’re going to need them as soon as the 2019 calendar reads January 3rd.

January 3rd, 2019 is the day that ultra radical Congress newcomers, the festering boil on the rump of the Democrat Party,  will prove it’s all all but impossible to lance.

Their message, written in harsh action rather than words,  could easily be:  ‘Move over Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer,  The Squad has arrived’.

Build the Wall

Build the Wall
Washington, D.C. – Yesterday at 4:00 PM ET, Congress reconvened and, while not on the official schedule, the focus is on resolving the current government shutdown. Liberty Counsel Action is supporting the $5 billion dollars requested by President Trump to build a wall on the Mexican border because of the increased safety and long-term financial savings this will provide to Americans.

One would have hoped that financial rip-offs committed by medieval princes would have been permanently shelved when liberal enlightenment ended the divine right of kings.

Continuing promises by Chairman Reckless to use the “printing press”, “helicopters” and more recently “bazookas” to inflate anything should be considered startling only in the resort to honesty. Euphemisms for currency depreciations started with the original promoters of the Fed and the tout was that a “flexible” currency would prevent serious financial contractions.

Socialism Can Kill You, But It Won’t Bury You

Socialism Can Kill You, But It Won't Bury You
Venezuela, a failing socialist state, has gifted its people with the sixth minimum wage hike in one year. The 150% increase last week won’t help too much because inflation is up to 1.7 million percent.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Minimum wage hikes don’t help when your currency isn’t worth the cost of the paper it’s printed on. That’s literally true in Venezuela, which has tried switching to an even more worthless cryptocurrency.

Hillary’s Russia Doomsday Scenario

The Steele dossier, a document produced by Christopher Steele at the behest of the Clinton campaign is ground zero for the Russia conspiracy theory that is tearing apart the country. Even the Mueller investigation has its ultimate roots in the eavesdropping carried out by the Obama administration using the dossier as evidence and the dubious and unverified claims made by Steele in the dossier.

But why did the Clinton campaign ever set out to create such a document?
