Another log on the fire of Truth

 (forwarded by our contributing Doctor of the medical arts and sciences....)

Global warming
                                       Takes an Australian to tell it like it is!!!
Ian Rutherford Plimer  is an Australian geologist, professor emeritus of earth sciences at the University of Melbourne, Professor of Mining Geology at the University of Adelaide, and the Director of Multiple Mineral Exploration and Mining Companies. He has published 130 scientific papers, six books and edited the Encyclopedia of Geology.

Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?
Professor Ian Plimer could not have said it better! If you've read his book you will agree, this is a good summary.
PLIMER : "Okay, here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland recently . Since its first spewing of 
volcanic ash , in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the 
past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet - all of you.
Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress - it’s that vital 
chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life on this planet.
I's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have 
accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying 
fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids "The Green Revolution" 
science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of 
toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing 
at home instead of abroad!!!
Nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with 
$10.00 light bulbs.....well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in 
just four days.  The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in just four days - yes, 
FOUR DAYS - by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made 
to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet 
spewing out this crud into the atmosphere - EVERY DAY of the year  
I don't really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the 
volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse 
gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.
Yes, folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over one year - think about it.  Of course, I shouldn't 
spoil this 'touchy-feely tree-hugging' moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic 
activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps 
happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.
And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is 
that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate 
your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens 
every year.
Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on 
the basis of the bogus 'human-caused' climate-change scenario.  Hey, isn’t it interesting 
how they don’t mention 'Global Warming' anymore, but just 'Climate Change'  - you know why?
It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees  in the past century and these 
global warming ‘BS’ artists got caught with their pants down.  And, just keep in mind that 
you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme - that whopping new tax - imposed 
on you, that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer.
It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure!!!
But, hey, relax...... and have a nice day mate !"


     We have described before the incident about the professors from West Coast universities making the rounds among the "lesser" universities to advise the teaching corps of the new marching orders.  This occurred back in the 1970s when the anti-capitalist, anti-American elements on campus were converting from anti-war, pro-Ho Chi Minh demonstrations to the "Green Revolution" movement.
     Once again the enemy of babies, minorities, women, and all the oppressed was America.  The cause?  Pollution and industrial (read - capitalist) exploitation of the finite resources of Mother Earth.   Little matter that the filthiest places in the world were the nations perpetually mired in filth and corruption in the un-developable world, and the communist bloc of Workers' Paradises.
      Professors came, some from Berkeley, others from even worse Stalinist strongholds, to lecture the professors at LSU's main campus in Baton Rouge about their new agenda.  My brother was a member of the class to be lectured, among them some of the preeminent lecturers in the world of Geography, Geology, and matters pertaining to Earth - Sun climatic relationships.
      The Wise Ones from the Berkeley set declared that all geography classes would begin next semester with the line of Global Cooling and the destruction of the Ozone Layer.  All were ordered to target flouro-hydrocarbons from aerosol spray cans as one of the main culprits in this human-race killing contamination.   Such devices were an invention of one of Richard Nixon's friends, and that alone made them worthy of abolition. (Snicker, snicker)

     The pitch was made to a totally un-receptive audience of 50 or so instructors and professors who were unimpressed with the science and offended by the high-handedness of the visitors.  Later, during the subsequent years, these same wizards came up with Nuclear Winter, Global Warming, and finally Climate Change.

     One of the reasons they left the LSU meeting in a huff was because one of the lead professors at LSU pointed out to the gaggle of filthy, hairy, unwashed stoners that the eruption of Krakatoa in 1883, between Java and Sumatra darkened the entire Planet for a couple of years.  It also spew more "greenhouse gasses" in one day than all human-kind had ever spewed and will ever spew due to human activity, industrial or agricultural or grilling in the backyard.   That same volcano had done it all before in the previous century, and as the good Dr. Plimer points out there are over 200 hundred active volcanoes around the Planet spewing forth as we type.

     It is all a sham.  We point out that the brother of this writer became the Chairman of the College of Earth Sciences of Louisiana State University during a stint in the 1980s, and resigned, becoming Professor Emeritus.   He was adamantly opposed to the notions postulated by doomsayers.
     Professor Plimer may be a little full of himself by stating that "it takes an Aussie" to tell it like it is, but his facts and research are certainly consistent with others who follow the stricter regimens required by the scientific method.

Another gleaning from the Doctor whose grandfather founded the citrus, and especially the Red Grapefruit Industry in the Lower Rio Grande Valley and America


Never Stand in Line
Secrets of the Secret Service stand in line 1 jpg.jpg?attredirects=0

Very interesting but not surprising. Scroll down to read what Kessler
thinks of the presidents he served. And now, you'll know the rest of
the story.   Interesting snippets from Ronald Kessler's book
about our presidents. stand in line 2 .jpg?attredirects=0

*A philanderer of the highest order.* 
*She ordered the kitchen help to save all the left-over wine from State 

dinners, mixed it with fresh wine and served again during the next
White House occasion.*
_____________________________________________________ stand in line 3 .jpg?attredirects=0

*Another philanderer of the highest order. In addition, LBJ was as crude as the day is long. Both JFK and LBJ kept a lot of women in the White House for extramarital affairs and both had set up early warning systems to alert them if/when their wives were nearby. Both were promiscuous and oversexed men.*
*She was either naive or just pretended to not know about her husband's many liaisons.*
_____________________________________________________ stand in line 4 .jpg?attredirects=0

*A "moral" man but very odd, weird, paranoid. He had a horrible relationship with his family and was almost a recluse.*
*She was quiet most of the time.*
____________________________________________________ stand in line 5 .jpg?attredirects=0

*Nice, decent man. Everyone in the Secret Service was surprised by his downfall.*
____________________________________________________ stand in line 6 .jpg?attredirects=0

*A true gentlemen who treated the Secret Service with respect and dignity. He had a great sense of humor. *
*She drank a lot!*
___________________________________________________ stand in line7 .jpg?attredirects=0

*A complete phony who would portray one picture of himself to public and very different in private e.g. would be shown carrying his own luggage but the suitcases were always empty. He kept empty ones just for photo ops. He wanted people to see him as pious and a non-drinker but he and his family drank alcohol a lot! He had disdain for the Secret Service and was very irresponsible with the "football" with nuclear codes. He didn't think it was a big deal and would keep military aides at a great distance. Often did not acknowledge the presence of Secret Service personnel assigned to serve him.*
*She mostly did her own thing.*

____________________________________________________ stand in line 8 .jpg?attredirects=0


     *The real deal, moral, honest, respectful and dignified. They treated Secret Service and everyone else with respect and honor, thanked everyone all the time. He took the time to know everyone on a personal level. One favorite story was early in his Presidency when he came out of his room with a pistol tucked on his hip. The agent in charge asked: "Why the pistol, Mr. President?" He replied, "In case you boys can't get the job done, I can help." It was common for him to carry a pistol. When he met with Gorbachev, he had a pistol in his briefcase. 
      *She was very nice but very protective of the President and the Secret Service was often caught in the middle. She tried hard to control what he ate. He would say to the agent, "Come on, you gotta help me out." The Reagan's drank wine during State dinners and special occasions only otherwise they shunned alcohol. The Secret Service could count on one hand the times they were served wine during family dinner. For all the fake bluster of the Carters, the Reagan's were the ones who lived life as genuinely moral people.* 
___________________________________________________________ stand in line 15 .jpg?attredirects=0


*Extremely kind and considerate, always respectful. Took great care in making sure the agents' comforts were taken care of. They even brought them meals. One time she brought warm clothes to agents standing outside at Kennebunkport. One was given a warm hat and, when he tried to say "no thanks" even though he was obviously freezing, the President said "Son, don't argue with the First Lady. Put the hat on." He was the most prompt of the Presidents. He ran the White House like a well-oiled machine.*

*She ruled the house and spoke her mind.*
____________________________________________________ stand in line 9 .jpg?attredirects=0

*Presidency was one giant party. Not trustworthy. He was nice mainly because he wanted everyone to like him but to him life is just one big game and party. Everyone knows about his sexuality.*
*She is another phony. Her personality would change the instant cameras were near. She hated, with open disdain the military and Secret Service. She was another who felt people were there to serve her. She was always trying to keep tabs on Bill Clinton.*
_________________________________________________ stand in line 12.jpg?attredirects=0

*An egotistical ass who was once overheard by his Secret Service detail lecturing his son that he needed to do better in school or he would end up like these guys, pointing to the agents.*
_____________________________________________________ stand in line 14 .jpg?attredirects=0


*Clinton all over again - hates the military and looks down on the Secret Service. He is egotistical and cunning. He looks you in the eye and appears to agree with you but turns around and does the opposite. He has temper tantrums.*
*She is a complete bitch who basically hates anybody who is not black, hates the military and looks at the Secret Service as servants.*

    A ‘TRUE STORY ABOUT’ General McChrystal's resignation in Obama's office from General McChrystal's book! NEVER STAND IN LINE AGAIN
Some men carry and handle their diplomacy better than others. When former U.S. Military commander in Afghanistan, General McChrystal, was called into the Oval Office by Barack Obama, he knew things weren't going to go well when the President accused him of not supporting him in his political role as President.

"It's not my job to support you as a politician, Mr. President, it's my job to support you as Commander-in-Chief," McChrystal replied, and he handed Obama his resignation.

Not satisfied with accepting McChrystal's resignation, the President made a cheap parting shot,"I bet when I die you'll be happy to wee - wee on my grave."

The General saluted and said, "Mr. President, I always told myself after leaving the Army I'd never stand in line again." 

(This thing about the grave is an old and often used Army joke. El Gringo Viejo doubts the authenticity of that remembrance. Other sources suggest that  McChrystal's statement was, "It might be a waste of good urine" and he walked out  without saluting or doing a formal heel-and-toe turn,  while Obama said, "Wait just a minute....."  and then made a backhanded {not obscene} gesture, as if to say, "AAii, get outta here.  I've got things to do."  There were several witnesses who did state that there was no "farewell handshake" or the like. This is mongrel gatherings from the internet, and I have no personal knowledge or proof either or any scenario.  EGV)

Catechism - All Lives Matter - and then a dose of (Sir Edmund) Hillary

(grill) ALSO KNOWN AS AN ASADOR (ah - sah - DOR).

It is a little difficult to tailgate with it, but heck,
 getting there is half the fun, right?
     In seriousness, any finca, quinta, hacienda, or similar in a rural area, especially in Northern Mexico that does not have a simple, straight-up, parrilla, is a nowhere place. 
     We also have a true, real live, seven-foot deep"pozo de barbacoa" (pit barbecue) of the true classical style.  Some soon day we may be putting it back to work now that we have a bit  of predictable guest-arrival starting up again.

Catechism and All Lives Matter:

    We are subjected to the analysis of causation of the prolonged affliction of bad schools, bad neighbourhoods, bad life outcomes, bad health, illegitimacy, drug addiction and marketting, and all such ills on a daily, almost hourly, basis.   Democrats have the best analysis and the best solution.   Racism and money.   They describe the source of the problem and then the solution.  Et Voila! Fait Accompli!!
     Republicans wring their hands and identify the symptoms but never quite make it to the cause of the socio-cultural disease.

   (1)  FACT
  Six trillion dollars after the beginning of the War on Poverty (tax,tax - spend, spend - elect, elect), forty-five years of denying social gravity and pushing young girls into marrying their Uncle Sam.

   (2) FACT
     Incessant driving of the presence of Yahweh from the corridors, classrooms, and auditoriums of public and even private schools.
  Most at fault among the private schools?  The Orthodox, including the Roman Catholic and Anglican sects of the Christian Church.  Protestants have some blame for abandoning their snake-handling, river-side baptisms, foot washing, and Hell's Fire and Brimstone sermons.
   The Orthodox have been completely absorbed by liberation theology, also known as Communism with a impossibility on the face of it.

     What has not been absorbed by liberation theology has succumbed to the notion of moral relativism, Utopianism, and the secular progressive agenda. The entire Christian Church has more and more absentees, and more and more people who can figure out different ways to say, "Well everyone should have his/her own standards of right and wrong.   All this God stuff is silly, and besides that I don't believe in any God, and God is dead anyway, 'cause I saw that on television.   And Sunday, I'm tired, and I have a lot of things to catch up on and everything."

     It is interesting to go through the old programmes from the ancient days here in McAllen, Texas.   The Commencement of 1954, where a Roman Catholic priest, the pastor of Our Lady of Sorrows, along with our priest, Father Rollo Rilliing of Saint John's Church - Episcopal, and the Rabbi of Temple Emanuel Louis Herman all prayed over the coming in, the going forth, and the being there, for and on behalf of the soon-to-be graduates of McAllen High School.

     At our Easter Vacation Assembly, before dismissal in 1959, I remember very clearly the priest from Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church in McAllen giving the students a pleasant send-off by carefully describing, on a blow-by-blow basis the nature of the sledging of nails the size of railroad spikes into the lower arms and legs of the Nazarene, and what the physiological effect of such an exercise might be.   Three girls fainted.   It was quiet all over Lamar Junior High School as 1,200 urchins and adolescents departed for a week's "vacation".

     (3) FACT
     Public Assistance always reverts to paying off those who are feared to be capable of burning down the bakery if there is no free bread.  Private charity is always....always....preferable when done sincerely.

     When the purpose of bearing young becomes gaining additional dispensations from a government stamps, housing, Aid to Families with Dependent Children, free Medical....then Satan has won.

     The fact will always be that a child's heart is given by his/her mother.  A child's soul is installed by his/her father.    Violation of this rule results in ruin.  We recognise that there are exceptions (Dr. Carson, for instance) and we recognise that a good bench can and does frequently make up for the absence of a father....uncles and grandfathers who are responsible and who have the time and disposition to nurture and to provide a positive male example.


     Begin the immediate reduction of benefits to the consumer group by 10% per year.   AFCD and Food Stamps must be completely phased out, no matter how much the liquor stores, lottery vendors, casinos, and grocery store chains howl and moan.   School lunches (60% wasted food - Farm Bureau loves it and ethanol to save the planet), and FEMA (what sense does it make to take money out of an area so as to come in and "save" everyone when that should be a task of the locale?  It is strictly crony-capitalist, pea-and-walnut shell game.)

       Immediately privatise the Social Security System, abolishing the disability part by taking no further applications.   Immediately privatise the Medicare system, and abolish the Medicaid programme.   Most of the American population now never knew nor heard of Charity Hospitals.   Such facilities could be resuscitated because they were no worse than what Medicaid is now, and they were substantially less expensive because they were locally controlled and financed.
     The Social Security disability and SSI programmes are overwhelmingly corrupt and heavily abused.   It is long past time that the institution be "fundamentally transformed".

    We must eliminate the engines of corruption that have turned many of our businesses and business people into vassals and beggars.   We must destroy those agencies that have enslaved millions into a prison of perpetual poverty of purse and soul.   We must release the eagles and let them soar!!! 

     So long as the corridors and classrooms are devoid of those reminders of a greater Cosmic Presence and a basic Catechism of life conduct....the Golden Rule, the Beatitudes, and a sense of propriety....then all the money and social work in the world will only make matters steadily worse.

All lives matter.

(SIR EDMUND) HILLARY - The Odyssey of Hubris and Deceit

     She delivered an insulting, arrogant commencement harangue as she left Wellesley.   She gained a position as a cub on the Senate Watergate  Special Investigation Committee.   At a page-turning point in the life of that committee, she was fired, with the added comment by the Special Counsel in charge of the investigation that he would never give Hillary a recommendation because she was lazy, did poor work, was untrustworthy, and she was a liar.
     She persistently (three times) over-rode the orders, agreed to by all the personnel, save for one, to consent to the notion that Richard Nixon should have right to counsel during the proceedings of Impeachment and the subsequent trial in the Senate.   She was caught leaking confidential material repeatedly, and she was caught blabbing confidential proceedings and meeting conversations to friends, radical Democrat operatives, and the press.

      There is no way she could have helped but know that that white-trash hillbilly over there was the guy who was the most famous draft dodger and woman beater circulating in Washington, D.C.   He had managed to beat the rap, by the intervention of Clinton's political godfather, of the sexual assault of an English Lord's granddaughter.

(From Politico magazine)
    Rhodes scholar Bill Clinton allegedly raped 19-year-old Eileen Wellstone at Oxford in 1969.  Wellstone says she was sexually assaulted by Bill after she met him at a pub. A retired State Department employee later anonymously told Capitol Hill Blue in 1999 “There was no doubt in my mind that this young woman had suffered severe emotional trauma…But we were under tremendous pressure to avoid the embarrassment of having a Rhodes scholar charged with rape.” 
Bill left Oxford with no degree (96% of Rhodes Scholars get degrees). 

     It is thought that Billy Jeff Blythe's get-out-of-jail card was the quick intervention of Senator J. William Fulbright, the Chairman of the very powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Billy Jeff's political godfather.   Her Majesty, the Queen determined in her wisdom to allow the wayward boy to leave so as to avoid an international incident with the Colonies across the pond.
     Eileen Wellstone was left with a ripped and torn lower lip, requiring many stitches, a dislocated shoulder, and a broken jaw.  Nothing serious....move on along....nothing to see here.   Her grandfather was a respected elder of the House of Lords.

     Since that union, between a narcissistic young hag who espoused marxism as the solution for all the little peoples' problems and money for the solution to her problems....and a narcissistic white-trash coward, woman-beating bully and draft-dodger, proven liar under oath (at the sacrifice of his law license), and well-practiced shyster and fraudulent operator....we have America's couple.   Why?  Because they will forward bolshevik and national socialism and abortion on demand, anytime, any place favored by the effete and elite who control the popular media and popular culture.

Makes you proud to be a member of an electorate that could vote for this pair and for another dolt who could read "Hope and Change" on a teleprompter.  Elective democracy, anyone?
