Two Cults of the Modern Dark Ages: Climate Change and Transgender

This week included a major school “strike” for the climate fanatics, in which school students skipped their classes to attend events all over the country. The young people are experiencing anxiety and depression now because of being terrorized by their elder climate fanatics such as Alexandira Ocasio-Cortez, who say that we only have 12 years before we’re all dead from climate change.

“The world is going to end in 12 years.” No it’s not, you morons. People have been saying these things, from “The Coming Ice Age” to Global Warming to “Climate Change,” for decades and decades.

But the truth is that the main goal of the fanatics is the expansion of government, the further centralization of government power, the further empowering of government to steal more from their neighbors via government-imposed redistributionism, and based on envy and covetousness, and that’s really it, people.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her fellow brainwashed dupes were themselves kids during the mid-2000s when Al Gore was warning people with his climate alarmism that included “An Inconvenient Truth” that was shown in classrooms throughout America. He and his cohorts should be charged with terrorism, and child abuse as well.

And Al Gore and his fellow Climate Crusaders are so concerned about the environment that they fly around in planes going from conference to conference, polluting the air from city to city to city. By the way, after being shamed into adding “green upgrades” to his 10,000+ square-foot home, the Gore home’s “footprint” is worse now than it was before he added the “green upgrades”!

Many people now are brainwashed to believe the climate change ideology, and they really are genuinely a cult of fanatics. They are religious crusaders who want to censor or call for the jailing of those who bring up inconvenient facts that refute the fanatics’ claims and repeated propaganda, not just jail for the “deniers” but death as well.

On Meet the Press, Chuck Toady had a one-hour special discussing the “Climate Change Crisis,” but didn’t invite anyone with an opposing point of view. Why, we needn’t even bother with the “deniers,” so what’s the point of including them? We know the truth already. Right, Toady?

And there are those who say that, well 97% of climate scientists agree with the Climate Change ideology (which isn’t true, by the way), and all the news outlets tell us about “Climate Change” and so it must be true. Well, a lot of people (like, maybe a billion or more?) believe in the Bible and Biblical scriptures, but does that mean the Biblical scriptures are really true?

The mass media repeat things over and over and over, so it must be true. Like, “Trump-Russia collusions,” and other things as Paul Craig Roberts pointed out, including 9/11, bin Laden, Saddam’s “weapons of mass destruction,” and so on. No, just because millions and millions of people believe something and the mass media and government bureaucrats repeat it over and over, that means nothing, and it doesn’t mean the propaganda is true. It does mean that a lot of people are gullible and easily manipulable. And it is getting worse today as government-controlled education stomps out the kids’ critical thinking skills and indoctrinates them with nonsense.

So, if you are someone who refuses to hear the opposing arguments and instead calls for censorship, calls for jailing or death to “deniers,” then yes you are a “crusader” and a part of a religious and fanatical “cult.”

One of the cult crusaders making her views known was this little 16-year-old climate groupie from Sweden, lecturing the rest of us. Lecturing the previous generations. She’s brainwashed. According to Wikipedia, she has an opera singer mother and an actor father. After she was first exposed to the Climate Change propaganda, “she became depressed and lethargic, stopped talking and eating, and was eventually diagnosed with Asperger syndrome, obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) and selective mutism,” says Wikipedia. Besides training their little girl to be a manipulative whiner and a shrill demagogue looking toward the Oscars, I wonder what else her actor parents did to her, psychologically? The climate cult fanatics have given her Asperger syndrome, obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) and selective mutism, apparently. And shame on the greedy corporate green cronies who are exploiting this kid and her childhood as well.

Anyway, there are thousands of scientists who do not sign on to the fear-mongering propaganda. “Science is settled” means that it is settled by consensus. But there is never a legitimate consensus when scientific inquiry and testing and retesting of data are resisted. Actual science is important. And evidence is important, too. The “evidence” the cultists use to “prove” their points mainly consists of computer models that are often shown to be wrong.

Another example of a society-wide brainwashed cult is the transgender movement. Yes, it is a “cult,” in which the rational people are not allowed to refer to someone who is a biological male as “he” or “him” and are accused of “misgendering” when in actuality it is people who are calling an actual male “she” or “her” who are misgendering. It is a cult when the brainwashed ones call for jailing people who “misgender” others (i.e. referring to someone with the correct gender pronoun).

There are actually people who when they talk to someone or introduce themselves with their name they also add a quick “he/him” or “she/her” to make sure the other person knows for sure what their gender identity is. I’ve seen people who are clearly female, for example, putting “she/her” on their Facebook or Twit profile. Really? You’re definitely female, it’s obvious with your looks and your name, but you have to make sure that others are given more information so that they know for sure that you are female? (This isn’t a “cult”?)

The transgender cult now includes Republican governors of U.S. states, such as Massachusetts and New Hampshire (the “Live Free or Die” state), signing bills to outlaw “conversion therapy,” which doesn’t just include “electric shock therapy” but also includes merely helping someone deal with the insecurity of gender identity issues.

When government officials outlaw certain conversations between a doctor and patient, or between a psychologist and a client, yes, we are talking about a “cult” here.

And then there are the many parents now, especially in the U.K., who are brainwashed to believe that if their child shows interests or behaviors of the opposite sex that therefore the parent should encourage the child to BE the opposite sex, give the kid hormones and eventually surgically mutilate the child to “become” the opposite sex. And we’re talking about parents starting their gender-confused kids in such a process at the age of 4 or 5! Those parents and the “doctors” who go along with these rituals of psychosis really ought to be charged with child abuse. They are ruining their children’s lives and their futures, certainly much more than “climate change” ever could. And the transgender cultists are becoming CPS nazis as well in the U.K., stealing kids from parents who refuse to comply with the transgender religious cult.

The truth is, that we’re not allowed by law in Massachusetts and New Hampshire (the “Live Free or Die” state) to say, the truth is most kids who experience an interest in being the opposite sex are merely going through a phase and will probably grow out of it at some point, says a Johns Hopkins psychiatrist. Someone who is or thinks he is “transgender” most likely has unresolved emotional issues from one’s childhood, issues that need to be resolved (which is now illegal in Massachusetts and New Hampshire, the “Live Free or Die” state — have I mentioned that?).

But the fanatical rage of what’s “in” these days, like the transgender movement, has taken over rationality just like “climate change” and other issues of panic and hysteria that also includes the hysterical anti-Iran propaganda and the anti-immigration movement.

Like Trump, Alexandria Obama-Chavez Against Economic Freedom

Thomas DiLorenzo says that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez embraces the Nazi Party platform of 1920. He writes,

Mike Rozeff reports that the clueless communist congresswoman from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has decided that her latest attack on economic freedom would be an attack on Total Wine and Spirits, a great store that sells every kind of alcoholic beverage (and food as well) much cheaper than your typical mom-and-pop state-regulated cartel liquor store.  After costing her district thousands of good-paying jobs with Amazon by scaring them away with threats of tax and regulatory harassment, she now opposes the opening up of Total Wine in her district, costing it even more jobs and protecting the local government-regulated-and-controlled liquor cartel.

Her hatred of large retailers is nearly identical to one of the 25 planks of the Nazi Party Platform of 1920, officially called the “Platform of the National Socialist German Workers Party.”  Plank #16 of the Nazi “platform” said:  “We demand . . . the immediate communalization [i.e., government takeover] of the large department stores, which are to be leased at low rates to small tradesmen.”  The general theme of the Nazi Platform, stated near the end, is that “we fight against the Jewish materialistic spirit,” i.e., capitalism.  To the Nazis the Jews were symbols of German capitalism which, as good socialists, they wanted to destroy (and they did by nationalizing all heavy industry and de facto nationalizing all the rest with totalitarian regulations, controls, and mandates).

At least we now know where Ocasio-Cortez’s wealthy Silicon Valley financiers and puppet masters are getting some of their ideas.  One wonders what her Jewish New York constituents think of this.

Immigration, Welfare, and the Nincompoop Republicans

What a week. With the snowstorm and now the deep freeze, and then an Internet outage (it’s back), and everything else that’s going on. And all these annoying things in the news. There’s that new Congresswoman from Minnesota who has sparked a hysterical “We Condemn Anti-Semitism and Hate Language” bill in Congress, and Nancy Pelosi has to scold her. But the former head of Greenpeace has called another new Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez a “pompous little twit” and criticized her “Green New Deal” as “eco-fascist.” Good.

Anyway, speaking of Ocasio-Cortez, in my post on the socialism of both Ocasio-Cortez and Trump vs. freedom, I mentioned some of the causes of the immigration problem at the southern border. One thing I didn’t mention is that the U.S. has a welfare state, a huge system of welfare handouts that includes Social Security and Medicare. This welfare state is unfortunately one aspect of America that attracts the “undesirables.”

There shouldn’t be handouts to immigrants (or to anyone, quite frankly) that are redistributed from money or earnings stolen from others. The whole system of forcibly taking something from others to give to the “needy,” the elderly, or anyone whose contributors did not give the loot voluntarily, is an immoral system. That is because the ends can’t morally justify the means of taking by force, by coercion, involuntarily. That’s just theft.

But why do conservatives continue to accept this immoral system? I listen to these hypocrites on the radio, the talk radio ditto-heads, and they say nothing about this immoral system of theft and plunder.

Therefore the conservatives love welfare and wealth redistributionism. They love the income tax, Social Security, and Medicare and Medicaid. I know they love it all, because they never say a thing about it or how immoral, dishonest and criminal it is.

Conservatives and Republicans caved when Democrat Wilson pushed the income tax-theft-enslavement on the people. They caved when FDR pushed the socialist/fascist New Deal, and they caved when LBJ pushed the “Great Society,” that turned out to not be so great. (And see Jacob Hornberger’s recent post on the idolization of Nazism.)

And see Laurence Vance on what the Republicans could have done when they had majorities, the Republicans making America socialist again, and, Who are the efficiency experts for the welfare state? Republicans and conservatives.

If Republicans and conservatives are worried about “illegal” immigrants coming into the U.S. and getting on welfare, they have had their chance again and again and again to pass bills to prevent immigrants from receiving welfare. But they dare not do that, because they are devoted welfare statists. (And as I wrote in my earlier post, ending the drug war will solve much of the immigration problem, the gangs and the violence. But dumb Republicans love the drug war and worship the police state.)

Republicans and conservatives are not serious about the immigration problem. They are not serious in their criticism of “socialism,” because they ARE socialists! And Donald Trump isn’t serious, either, in my view. Their neanderthal authoritarianism drives their conservatard mentality, as well as their strong belief in the welfare state and the empowerment of the centralized bureaucracy in Washington.

The Control Freaks Want to Complete the Total Ruination of Amerika

We’re getting it from all over now. From the activists, the socialists, the fascists, the drug-addicted and the boozers, and the general statist control freaks who love their enmeshment with government powers.

First, Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley says that a Louisiana woman was arrested for posting online a video of a fight between two boys at her son’s school. She was not there to see the fight but found the video on her son’s cell phone. She was charged with…with…I can’t even remember now, some stupid thing, charged by some stupid government police bureaucrats.

Of course people have a right to post a video of a school fight. In fact, as the actual law (that Turley quoted from) shows, there are exceptions to the prohibition including the video being used as a “public service.” In my view, the woman is providing the public with actual video of a school fight, especially when both students in the fight were charged by police.

Turley describes the law as a “poorly conceived law that criminalizes the ‘Unlawful posting of criminal activity for notoriety and publicity’,” and was first introduced by Democrat state Rep. Barbara Norton (obviously a relative of Ed Norton from the Honeymooners), and signed into law by then-Gov. Bobby Jindal, the fast-talking politician who ran for President in 2016, but dropped out of the race in 2015. (Does he look like Yoda?)

Now, the answer to these problems occurring at public schools is to abolish public schools, a.k.a. government schools. And regarding posting videos of a fight or other incidents happening on the promises of public property, of course that would be in the public interest, and in the public domain.

The response to someone posting something online that meddling statists don’t like is to prohibit such an act, by law. That is what dictators like to do. They like to give orders and boss people around. For instance, another example is Carl Tuckerson who wants to ban kids from having Smartphones, by law, by federal law as well. Not let parents decide whether or not they think their kids should have a Smartphone, no. The Nanny State should decide for us.

According to the Blaze, Tuckerson compares that to the age restrictions to buy cigarettes, because phone addiction is harmful to one’s health. Tuckerson stated, “Smartphone use makes your kids sadder, slower, and more isolated, and over time, can kill them.” Yeah, but so can watching Fox News, Carl.

“There’s no reason why the Congress, which made smartphones possible in the first place, shouldn’t be part of the solution,” he continued.

What? Congress made Smartphones possible? Are you serious? That sounds like the typical mindset of someone who worships our Washington overlords. Here is the history of the Smartphone. I see nothing in there about “Congress” or anything government! What are you, Al Gore?

Government shouldn’t have the power to ban anything! Not Smartphones or football for kids, or cigarettes or booze for that matter. Let parents decide. And government shouldn’t be banning anything by law, not drugs, booze, phones, or guns. These people are real meddlers when you get right down to it.

And there’s someone in Washington now who wants to do some serious banning, prohibiting, forbidding, restricting, punishing, meddling, intruding, interfering, dictating, ordering, controlling, and all-around messing things up, that being Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who Roseanne Barr is now calling a “Farrakhan-loving bug-eyed b*tch.” (Is she related to Bill Barr? What about Bob Barr?)

Ocasio-Cortez wants to ban cars and trucks, and apparently go back to horse and buggy, and she wants to ban airplanes, and cows. And apparently she wants to have some kind of “public bank or system of regional and specialized public banks, public venture funds” to pay for the Greed New Deal Green Wheel-Deal those Washington communists are foaming at the mouth about. So they’ll just give everybody phony Monopoly money to play with, that’s worth nothing, and they will just move the whole society further into total impoverishment more quickly, that’s all.

And this is all in the name of not environmentalism but Social Justice i.e. control. Ocasio-Cortez has been joined by many of her fellow crazies in Congress including Presidential candidates Elizabeth Warren and Kamoolah Harris. And Bernie Goetz Bernie Sanders if I’m not mistaken. These people in Washington are really nuts, not just ignorant and low-IQ.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Boston University Economics Professors “Very Proud” of Her

Robert Wenzel writes that he spoke with several economics professors at Boston University, the alma mater of economics major Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Yesterday, I spoke over the phone with a number of BU faculty members in the economics department and the consensus was that she was a very bright student who has “very interesting ideas” and that she will have an impact. They seemed to believe that she was getting advice from “top economists,” perhaps Thomas Piketty. Yes, this Thomas Piketty.

Even Prof. Laurence Kotlikoff, who would seem to have the least in common with AOC from a policy perspective (He was President Ronald Reagan’s Council of Economic Advisers), told me that the Boston University economics faculty was “very proud of her.”

He emphasized that AOC was “impressive in many ways” and that what she is advocating “in many ways is closer to where we should be than where we are now.”

He said it was good she was pushing the envelope and that she is causing serious discussion. He particularly likes that she is pushing for a “progressive fiscal system.” He says we now have a regressive fiscal system.
