UPDATE: Democrats have been working assiduously to blame the ISIS invasion of Iraq during the Obama administration on the decision of George W. Bush, with the authorization of a bipartisan super majority of Congress including then Senator Hillary Clinton, to liberate Iraq back in 2003.

Here is the reality.

Bush’s Surge routed al Qeada in Iraq and won the Iraq War back in 2008.

In a 2011 speech to the paratroopers at Ft. Bragg, Obama declared the Iraq War a success and patted himself on the back for withdrawing the American troops which maintained the Iraqi military:

We knew this day would come. We’ve known it for some time. But still there is something profound about the end of a war that has lasted so long. It’s harder to end a war than begin one. Everything that American troops have done in Iraq – all the fighting, all the dying, the bleeding and the building and the training and the partnering, all of it has landed to this moment of success.

A year later, al Qeada in Iraq reconstituted itself in Syria as ISIS and re-invaded Iraq in 2013. The Iraqi military which Obama abandoned crumbled.

When ISIS conquered the Iraqi city of Fallujah, Obama blew off ISIS as a “JV team.”

After ISIS overran nearly a third of Iraq and closed on the capital of Baghdad, Obama finally ordered a military response – a completely ineffective handful of air strikes.

Even as he condemned the ISIS for murdering and raping their way across the the Middle East, Obama took the opportunity at the National Prayer Breakfast (of all events) to insist that the “Islamic State” is not Islamic and that Christians are morally comparable to these barbarians.

After ISIS conquered the Iraqi city of Ramadi a few days ago, this administration said that we should not “light our hair on fire every time there is a setback.”

Yet, this is all George Bush’s fault?

GOP Survivor

Almost every Republican with national name recognition, and a few you may never have heard of, have announced that they want to run for president against Hillary in 2016. Understandable, but how on Earth will all these candidates fit on stage for the GOP nomination debates?

Survivor

I have a solution – GOP Survivor.

After every debate, have registered GOP voters viewing the debate vote one candidate off of future debates.

I guarantee that, under this format, you can take care of the number problems and the debates will draw massively larger audiences.

Iowa Democrats Can’t Recall Any Accomplishment Of Hillary Clinton

Maybe that is because Clinton has never accomplished anything positive.

As co-president with Bill, Hillary’s sole accomplishment was Hillarycare.

As a carpetbagger New York Senator, Hillary’s accomplishment was voting for the Iraq War before voting against it.

As Secretary of State, Hilary’s leading accomplishments were leaving Iraq and allowing al Qaeda in Iraq (renamed as ISIS) back in, then leaving the Benghazi consulate undefended so al Qaeda could sack it.

If you are a Democrat voter, I would not want to recall that resume either.

DIA Documents Show Obama And Clinton Lied About Every Aspect Of The 9/11 Benghazi Attack

…but only Fox covers the story, while the Democrat media spikes it.

What a surprise.

Obamacare Exchanges Sinking In Red Ink

The Obamacare architects proclaimed that their government health insurance exchanges would be self financing and hoped secretly that hidden taxes on group health insurance plans would cover the losses of insurers selling the government designed health insurance on the exchanges.

Pure wishful thinking.

drowning-in-red-ink

About half of the state government exchanges selling Obamacare health insurance are in financial trouble. Apparently it costs a small fortune for government exchanges sign up people by telephone and then attempt to determine how much money to take from the taxpayers to pay for their health insurance. After wasting over $300 million, deep blue Oregon recently pulled the plug on its Obamacare exchange. The Obamacare SHOP exchanges for small businesses to buy government designed health insurance for their employees are also failing.

Even though premiums for the government designed health insurance policies have soared by roughly half over the premiums for pre-Obamacare individual health insurance policies, the insurers selling the new Obamacare insurance are suffering heavy losses because only the poor and sick are signing up. Our government planners actually saw this train wreck coming and hid a variety of taxes in the Obamacare legislation to bail out the insurers. However, the Obamacare bureaucracy had to illegally transfer money from other sources to cover the $1 billion in losses last year. Standard & Poors recently calculated that there simply is not enough money to continue the insurer bailouts in the future.

Ain’t socialism grand?

UPDATE: Hawaii is shutting down its massively expensive Obamacare exchange.

UPDATE TWO: With the GOP Congress stopping the Obamacare bureaucracy from making any further illegal bailouts of the government exchange insurers, the insurers are proposing to hike premiums by up to 40% in 2016.

Pulling Back The Curtain On Global Warming Fraud

The proponents of manmade global warming routinely offer charts like Michael Mann’s “hockey stick” published by the UN claiming that atmospheric temperatures were basically stable over the past millennium until they soared after the Industrial Revolution and the advent of the automobile when human CO2 emissions soared exponentially.

In reality, atmospheric temperatures over the past millennium did not plod along like the lines on the Mann graph and instead swung wildly up and down as the graph of the actual raw data shows below.

The noisy spread of temperatures between the swings on this graph is represents the natural variation of atmospheric temperature driven by the constantly changing interaction of the sun’s energy with the oceans and atmosphere.

This week, Duke University published a peer reviewed study of the actual raw temperature data over time and found that the slight warming over the past century and the “moderate” manmade global warming model predictions are well within the natural variability of temperature over the past millennium. In sum, Duke found that human CO2 emissions do not appear to be producing a pronounced warming outside of the natural variation of the climate.

How then can we account for the difference between the raw temperature data used by Duke University and the nice smooth temperature line shown in the Mann “hockey stick” graph?

It is becoming increasingly clear that the proponents of manmade global warming who run the major temperature databases are statistically manipulating the real temperature data to show a significant recent warming that does not exist in fact.

The first evidence of this manipulation emerged back during the 2009 Climategate scandal, when a still unknown person disclosed reams of secret data from Britain’s Climate Research Unit at East Anglia (CRU). Internal programing notes in the CRU database suggested that scientists at CRU had simply made up many of the weather stations and measurements upon which their “adjusted” temperature record relied.

In 2011, the BEST database published “adjusted” temperature data showing uninterrupted warming since 1950, when the raw data showed no warming for the past decade.

In 2015, NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) claimed that 2014 was the hottest year in recorded history, but closer examination of their data revealed that GISS scientists were manipulating South American temperature measurements upward.

Hopefully, we will soon have a more thorough review of the discrepancies between the “adjusted” temperature data published by the major databases and the raw temperatures measured at the actual weather stations. The Global Warming Policy Foundation, a think tank dedicated to challenging the manmade global warming hypothesis, has engaged five scientists from various scientific fields to look into that question.

Manmade global warming advocates have already started to attack the proposed study before it has even completed its work. Pay no attention to that data behind the curtain, they exclaim!
