We never say "We told you so...." but......


   As all OROGs know, we never say, "I told you so." on this particular blog.  The only time we can recollect having done so is almost every time El Gringo Viejo has had the opportunity.   But, feareth naught.  We shall be brief.

(1)     Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has come out of the shadows of her various infirmities (a la Hillary) which have called into question not only her general health but her sanity.    Her presidency has paralleled that of Barry Soetoro in that she has been equally incompetent, equally driven by red-marxist principles, and as accompanies all leftist regimes, the hypocritical sacking of the public purse for personal benefit and enjoyment.

     The economic situation in Argentina is well beyond critical.  Cristina and her merry band of marxist thugs have gone so far as to propose the confiscation of pension funds and "un-used" savings accounts.   You all know, those silly savings accounts that are just laying around, not being used by anyone, just being held by rich people so that they can "be rich".
     Industry, commerce, agriculture, finance, and the cultural condition have all hit the skids in an alarming way.   The Argentine peso has lost 40% of its value during Cristina's regimen.

   Now, however there is another problem.  This problem has been dogging all of Argentina for 20 years now.   It is rather much like the issue of the Murrah Building bombing in Oklahoma City, where Islamic terrorist methods were used to destroy a building in the middle of a major American city, killing 168 and seriously injuring over 680 men, women, and children.   No reasonable person believes that those accused and convicted were lone actors, and truckloads of evidence include the reality that the same type people who attempted to blow up one of the New York Twin Towers were integrally involved in the Oklahoma affair.

     The same year, Hezbollah and Iran destroyed a Jewish cultural centre in Buenos Aires.   Cristina and her minions, like all good marxists, hates Jews and Israel.   Her husband, also having been a president of Argentina before Cristina, hated Jews and Israel.  The desire to surreptitiously import large quantities of Iranian oil at discount prices during the several and frequent economic crises endured by the Argentines, caused the authorities to cover up the involvement of Iran in the destruction of the building with the loss of over 80 lives and the wounding of over 200 innocents.




Hate Negroes?  Want to kill
homosexuals for being homosexual?
Like to shoot 13 years olds for not
"joining the revolucion"? Hate
Gringos, or anyone else you are
told to hate?  Hate critical thought?
     Suffice to say, the fact that the door of government prosecutor Alberto Nisman's,  apartment was locked from the inside means absolutely nothing, because any well-trained locksmith can lock a door from the inside from the outside, so to speak.  The fact that the present Argentine Pink House spokesman pointed out the fact that the door was locked from the inside is almost a point that begs the question, "How did you know about a forensic detail of evidence that should have been kept secret?   Did you call the Vince Foster Forensic Team for assistance?"
     We'll see how this plays out for the "(Sir Edmund)Hillary of South A merica" during her last days in office.  These women....Frida, Hillary, Cristina, Pocahontas Warren, are all so predictable...."helping the poor" and "doing so much for women's issues" and wearing their Che T-shirts....just so long as they don't have to have any real physical contact with the favela people.   EEEEUUUuuuuuu.


     We were distressed, once again, with a Republican Congresswoman, this time from Tennessee was actually decrying the fact that "The President does not understand that raising taxes on the wealthy will not help anyone". 

EARTH TO Congresspersonlady - Obama is stupid and mean.  He is a cutthroat community organiser with little intelligence and much hatred of white people, conservative blacks and Latinos, and a total commitment to the destruction of the moneyed class and the middle-class as he constructs them in his mind.   He is programmed to use what little, repetitive intelligence he has to convince the stupid, the lethargic, and the Miss Flukie sloths of the world that someone else must pay their way, needs, wants, and  comforts.
     In other words, he understands exactly what he is trying to do.  He is trying to destroy the American Union by making all the "little people" proles who do the bidding of their superiors, the Commissars and the directors of the State Collective.
    Stop talking bilge, and speaking in trite, meaningless phrases.

Thank you, Congresspersonlady.


     This submission could also be named..... "And we are absolutely, positively, without doubt about 38% sure about this data, even after recognising that our computer programmes are experimental, have always failed, and have nothing to do with reality."

     The Nasa climate scientists who claimed 2014 set a new record for global warmth last night admitted they were only 38 per cent sure this was true.
     In a press release on Friday, Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) claimed its analysis of world temperatures showed ‘2014 was the warmest year on record’.
The claim made headlines around the world, but yesterday it emerged that GISS’s analysis – based on readings from more than 3,000 measuring stations worldwide – is subject to a margin of error. Nasa admits this means it is far from certain that 2014 set a record at all.
    Yet the Nasa press release failed to mention this, as well as the fact that the alleged ‘record’ amounted to an increase over 2010, the previous ‘warmest year’, of just two-hundredths of a degree – or 0.02C. The margin of error is said by scientists to be approximately 0.1C – several times as much.
    As a result, GISS’s director Gavin Schmidt has now admitted Nasa thinks the likelihood that 2014 was the warmest year since 1880 is just 38 per cent. However, when asked by this newspaper whether he regretted that the news release did not mention this, he did not respond. Another analysis, from the Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project, drawn from ten times as many measuring stations as GISS, concluded that if 2014 was a record year, it was by an even tinier amount.

      Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) claimed its analysis of world temperatures showed ‘2014 was the warmest year on record’.
Its report said: ‘Numerically, our best estimate for the global temperature of 2014 puts it slightly above (by 0.01C) that of the next warmest year (2010) but by much less than the margin of uncertainty.

     What amazes this observer is that we spend fortunes for this information.   The material is filtered, diluted, hammered, manipulated, and steam-rolled to fit their narrative, and even when they can't really, really justify it....the publish it anyway.

More later.   Thank one and all in the OROG community for your continued patronage.
