Number 367

The New Terrapin Gazette Number 367 20 January 2015 …there are more than 1.8 million deceased individuals…on (US) voter registration rolls. …approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state. The Global Warming Cult Insanely Compounds Its Hoax The press in thrall You read the news reports: the temperature records of 2014 prove that AGW, anthropogenic global warming, is a fact. The triumphalist Warmers are celebrating proof that they were right all along, and that the “deniers” are nothing but whores bought by the diabolical Koch brothers. From all points of the compass, the cry has gone up: “Gotcha!” Well, the tumult is immaterial, for solid science is not fragile. When mocked by charlatans and loons, it loses neither objectivity nor rationality. So…. You have been lied to The government’s report that has been widely reported as proclaiming 2014 the hottest year ever actually claims that 2014 was “more unlikely than likely” to have been the warmest on record. You did not hear about that because the print and electronic journalists never bothered to read the full text carefully. Yes, that is putting it charitably. However, this newsletter does comfortably suggest that the report on climate was composed — crafted — to mislead folks who are less than thorough. You can look into it. By all means do so. Aha! As this Number goes to the subscribers:...

Number 366

The New Terrapin Gazette Part of this Number was originally published as The Penguin Post Number 366 14 January 2015 Introductory This Number reprints commentary published in Number 45 of what was then called The Penguin Post. (The name of the newsletter was changed when it was discovered that there was another newsletter/weblog of that name.) Number 45 appeared on the ninth of December, 2008. It is not available on the internet. Nothing has been removed from or added to this reprint, and no corrections have been made. The Lessons Of Mumbai What have we learned? We know that one does not overthrow a nation or a culture by sniping; it takes more than that. So we have learned that our blood enemies intend simply to make life miserable for us. In the expectation of what, exactly? They believe that we shall change things, and those changes will help to bring down what we have built. From bin Laden to the little boys memorizing the Koran in shabby “schools” in Indonesia, there prevails a faith that knows no doubt. The values of the submissive believers are god-given verities, and life has meaning because it is sacrificed in service to the death cult. Our lives, however, are often suffused with doubt. We can be uncertain, and we are impatient, restless, and eager to do the right thing — by which...

Number 365

The New Terrapin Gazette Number 365 11 January 2015 …if you wish to defend religion by bloodshed, and by tortures, and by guilt, it will no longer be defended, but will be polluted and profaned. This Post Is Elemental Thanks go to The Tramp Abroad for pointing to a blistering commentary on parlous times. Prospects For The USA’s “Progressives” Killer quote: Shell-shocked liberals are beginning to grasp some inconvenient truths. No gun massacre is horrible enough to change Americans’ ideas about gun control. No UN Climate Report will get a climate treaty through the US Senate. No combination of anecdotal and statistical evidence will persuade Americans to end their longtime practice of giving police officers extremely wide discretion in the use of force. No “name and shame” report, however graphic, from the Senate Intelligence Committee staff will change the minds of the consistent majority of Americans who tell pollsters that they believe that torture is justifiable under at least some circumstances. No feminist campaign will convince enough voters that the presumption of innocence should not apply to those accused of rape. Source, where you can find the entire highly-recommended commentary. Yes, though the USA’s collectivist Utopians still have virtual strangleholds on the print and TV media, as well as an insular monopoly in most educational institutions, the sheer impracticality of authoritarian neo-Marxist ideology is crippling. That disability will not...
