Vlad Tepes composed a video recently that captured President Obama’s Islamic leanings. The composition was quite moving and disturbing.
Now we have the video below, snipped from a Sean Hannity show. It features an interview with Mark Steyn in which — among other things — he has a lot to say regarding the president’s selective attention when it comes to the lives of blacks. As noted by Mr. Steyn, the president was not reticent about “social” justice when it came to the killing of a young black thug by a policeman in Ferguson Missouri. However, in the case of the brutal murders of 148 black Christian students in Kenya, his purported ancestral home, Obama was silent. Was that because his putative father was a member of Kenya’s Communist Party while these Christian students weren’t? Perhaps they didn’t fit his ongoing fake-but-accurate narrative regarding reality?
Normally, I find the strident voices in television interviews to be tiresome, but this one held my attention for a number of reasons.
At one point, Sean Hannity mentions his own puzzlement regarding President Enigma. That’s my term, not his. He’d be accused of racism for the ‘nig’ in that word. Sigh.
Hannity is right: there is something about Obama that remains occluded — my term again — strange and unknowable. Could Obama, too, be under the influence of Planet X?? And wouldn’t that be interesting if he were: all those strange bedfellows — politicians, policy-makers, and wealthy donors jostling in that king-sized bed for the best position?
Mark Steyn is currently plugging a Climate Compendium to which he is one of the contributors — and he’s delighted to be included to judge by his reaction:
Click on the link to see the book’s cover image on Amazon. How many of your favorite “deniers” are in that list on the cover? It was fun picking through the names and recognizing those already on our sidebar, or others we’ve read with approval through the years.
That book is certainly an Anglosphere collection, and no wonder: it was put together by an Australian group billing itself as the oldest free-market think tank. Founded in 1943, it certainly has that claim sewn up. The Institute of Public Affairs could serve as the symbolic point at which Australia turned away from Europe’s (and Britain’s) increasingly Communist-dominated socialism and embraced free-market enterprise. It is saddening to see how much damage is evident now in Britain from that fateful turn.
I’ve also subscribed to their YouTube channel and will ask the Baron to put them on our sidebar.
From Mark Steyn’s website some information about the IPA’s book. Click that embedded URL to see his links. I didn’t include them. [my emphasis below — D]:
Climate Change: The Facts has been put together by our friends at the Institute of Public Affairs in Australia, edited by Alan Moran, and features 22 essays on the science, politics and economics of “climate change”. Aside from yours truly, you’ll also find: Anthony Watts on the 18-year warming pause; Joanne Nova on the climate-change gravy train; Britain’s former Chancellor Nigel Lawson on the economic consequences of abandoning fossil fuels; Patrick Michaels on the growing chasm between the predictions of the IPCC and real-world temperatures, Garth Paltridge on the damage such failed forecasts are doing to science, and Donna Laframboise on the damage the Big Climate alarmists have done to the IPCC; professors Richard Lindzen, Bob Carter and Willie Soon on climate sensitivity and factors such as greenhouse gases, natural variability, and the role of the sun…
Oh, don’t worry, Michael E Mann and his “hockey stick” are in the book, in an analysis by one of the two men who’ve inflicted more damage on Mann’s stick than anybody else, Professor Ross McKitrick. For all but the most hardcore climate alarmists, it’s increasingly clear, almost two decades into the “pause”, that climate science and its attendant politics need a fresh start. This book is an important contribution to that, by a wide range of authors whose writing on this subject over the years has held up a lot better than the dire predictions of the climate models.
Climate Change: The Facts will be available in paperback direct from the SteynOnline bookstore next month (and personally autographed by me, if you so desire). For now, it’s available as an eBook from Kindle via Amazon.com and other Amazon outlets around the world…
He’s right about the large gap between reality and those dire predictions. This whole subject is strikingly emblematic of the Left’s obsession with bad news and blame.
It would certainly be a good reference book for those who follow this subject. For those who feel guilty for not keeping up, the book would be a remedy for what you don’t know but wish you did. For me, it goes on the wish list. If I don’t put it on there now, the B never know what to get for my birthday, and I can never remember wanting or needing anything when he asks me. I’ll bet a lot of you are the same way.
