The Coming War In Afghanistan Yes, there is war in Afghanistan now, but to refer to the “coming war” there is still accurate — because we haven’t seen anything yet. The Taliban will murder all foreigners in the country and put the population back in chains if the USA does not move in soon. This has been coming on for months, and The PenPo has not devoted nearly enough space to it. The basic problems are NATO’s underperformance, and sloppy command and control. Some of the NATO forces should stop pretending they are soldiers and clear out as soon as possible. We have to face the fact that the Europeans simply will not fight. They see no reason to — which may be because they intuit the truth: even if they win in Afghanistan, they have already lost to Islam at home. There can be no reversing the tragic course of events. Europe has perhaps two decades left before it comes under Muslim control. The big advantage the USA has in the war in Afghanistan is air power. The USAF had a devastating impact on the Taliban some years ago. That said, the key to victory is, as always, troops on the ground. There is no way to protect the civilian population from the Taliban, hold territory and win this war without infantry that knows how to fight and...

The Myth Of Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) Is Not Just False, But A Deliberate Hoax The proof comes in two reports. First is this summary of the facts: Global temperature has declined since 1998. Meanwhile, atmospheric carbon dioxide has gone in the other direction, increasing 20%. This divergence casts doubt on the validity of the greenhouse hypothesis, but that hasn’t discouraged the global warming advocates. They have long been ignoring far greater evidence that the basic assumption of greenhouse warming from increases in carbon dioxide is false. From 1940 until the mid-1970s, the climate also failed to behave according to the greenhouse hypothesis, as carbon dioxide was strongly increasing while global temperatures cooled. This cooling led to countless scare stories in the media about a new ice age commencing. Not only is carbon dioxide’s total greenhouse effect puny, mankind’s contribution to it is minuscule. The overwhelming majority (97%) of carbon dioxide in the earth’s atmosphere comes from nature, not from man. Notice that the author puts man’s contribution to atmospheric CO2 at right around 3%. Other sources, including at least one AGW-believing website, say it is close to 5%. Neither figure is nearly high enough to give us any hope of altering climate by reducing our output of the gas. Second, we have a comprehensive article exposing the fabrication of AGW propaganda. For some years, AGW promoters such as...

This number of The Penguin Post is devoted exclusively to the issues behind the McCain-Feingold Act, a law co-sponsored by Senator John McCain. The original draft of the legislation is important because its intent tells us something about McCain. No attempt is made here to explain the intricacies of the law; follow the links for specific details.   John McCain’s Assault On The First Amendment Pretend for a minute. You have some disposable income, and a gripe: you want the 19th amendment to the US constitution repealed. Some of your buddies agree with you. One night you are having some drinks with the regulars, and somebody says, “We ought to do something about it. I know a guy who can make a video for us, cheap, and we could take a few ads in magazines. You know, try to get things moving.” Your group decides to give it a shot, so the video is produced and you pony up to get it on a local cable station. A vice-chairperson of a feminist group sees your Quixotic video and howls bloody murder to the cable station, which pulls the video. You howl back, and the story is reported on TV and radio. You receive messages that your gonads are about to be traumatically removed, but some folks donate money to your cause. Then a rich guy offers you a couple...

Nasty And Clumsily Written, But Still Spot On OK, tell us what you really think of the grand international sporting event about to take place in China. The Olympics are a fount of corruption and chicanery anyway, upholding no ideals and promoting no good ends anyway. Plus, they’re boring. Yep. Source here. Whatever Shall We Do With And To These People Who Claim Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) Is Not A Fact?? Punish Them, Or Shut Them Up…Or How About Both? Decisions, Decisions…. It’s grisly. Some people are actually debating how to censor those who speak scientific truth to faith-based mythology. The problem for these authoritarian hysterics is how to “balance freedoms.” That seems reasonable, doesn’t it? After all, fair is fair, and balance implies an attempt to provide something for everybody. Well, it’s not fair — it’s deceitful and fake. It ignores completely the fact that AGW believers want to discredit and silence those who point out the absurdities of the AGW myth. That’s not “balance,” any more than it would be “balance” to prevent Christians from trying to convert atheists. How far are the AGW alarmists willing to go? This far: …let’s ask: what would happen if denial of both a) human-caused climate change and b) the dangers of such rapid change, were to be censored? If the science is beyond reasonable doubt, and miscommunication and denial leads...

Tangled Webs And Unhinged Minds: The Story of Sami Al-Arian, Terror Advocate Sami Al-Arian is a college teacher and wily supporter of mass murderers. He currently sits in prison in the USA, serving a term far too short for his crimes. The facts of his case are not just bizarre, but frightening. They provide a glimpse into the minds of some of the most dangerous people on earth, the “Palestinians,” and also expose “progressive” allies of the “Palestinians” to critical view. Follow the links. This is the story in a nutshell. The “progressive” response. Look at the entire site, and note the books advertised there. This is a dive into an ideological septic tank, to be sure, but a necessary excursion for folks who are not familiar with the implications of far-left mythology. The shameful consequences: a former presidential candidate, taken seriously by some, suggests a strategy to those who oppose the attempt to put Al-Arian where he belongs. This is what happens when Jew-hatred and a loathing of the USA’s cultural postulates disguise themselves as principled opinion. For context, here is a valuable discussion of “Palestinian” values and thought processes. These people are not victims of anything but their own insanity, as this post makes clear. Not Everyone Agrees With The PenPo’s Flat Statement That McCain Can’t Win Here is a peculiar essay from the left that is...
