Global warming scam caught red handed again.

Here's ANOTHER official thermometer sited to increase temperature. This one is in Australia.

Count the ways this site breaches the Bureau of Meteorology own rules:

Ken Stewart finds the relevant BoM guidelines. Clearly this site is on a slope, too close to buildings, too close to tall foliage, too close to heat sinks, it should not be artificially watered, or near asphalt. It should have a 30 meter buffer zone, and not be shielded from the sun, rain or wind. BillinOz points out that it is totally screened from the southerly cold winds, and the cold air will be drained from the spot down the slope.
How much do the Bureau of Meteorology care about climate change? — About 1m out of 30m or 3% of their advertised "care" factor.  That's a a 97% Junk-Science rate. The future of life on Earth is supposedly at stake and the "experts" can't even be bothered accurately measuring the climate change they tell us we need to pay billions of dollars to solve.
Obviously every record claimed at this site is scientifically meaningless. This sort of error can't be homogenized or adjusted away, but taxpaying Australians might think that installing a proper site would be possible when we pay them over a million dollars a day.
Mt Barker's temperatures are published at their Latest Weather Observations page. As Stewart points out this flawed site is used to adjust temperatures at official superstar ACORN-SAT sites at Adelaide, Cape Borda, Nuriootpa, Robe, and Snowtown. And thus does bad data pollute Australia's temperature records and the press releases that are used to scare the public into paying more money to fix a climate problem no one can be bothered to even measure properly.
The bottom line? Ask our M.P.'s to audit the Bureau of Met. If the environment matters, there must be an independent audit. Skeptics have asked, and the Bureau threw out the whole dataset to avoid the audit. They admit they won't describe their methods. If the Greens or Australian Conservation Foundation cared about the environment, they would demand an audit like we do.
In 2015 this site was on the other side of the block next to the driveway and car. "Lucky" the BoM realized, and … moved it to another inadequate spot.

This is a common theme in official weather stations. One or two that were put up by idiots is noise. But as we've seen, hundreds of stations are like this one. Next to a house, on a hill, air conditioner peeking around the corner, next to a driveway... it goes on and on.

One or two is noise. Hundreds is a policy.

Next question, if the weather officials in Western nations have a policy of constructing lying ground stations, what else are they lying about? You'd have to assume they're lying about everything.

The Phantom

Update: Lest anyone think for a moment that the above is a mistake or an oversight... this is another one, and they included the official plan in the blog post.

Another day, another lesbian blocked on Farcebook.

Big Tranny is flexing it's muscles these days, beating up women and getting them kicked off social media.

On Sunday evening, Miriam Ben-Shalom, the first lesbian to be reinstated to the U.S. Army after being booted over her sexual orientation, told PJ Media she had been banned from Facebook for 30 days. Her crime? Saying that lesbians like her are not interested in intercourse with males who have male anatomy. She has been outspoken against transgender activists, who — among other things — insist that males who identify as women are really women, so lesbians must be romantically interested in them.
When PJ Media asked about the offending post, Ben-Shalom pointed to a photo with two t-shirts.
"It is a picture of 2 red t-shirts in 'Your photos,'" she wrote in an email. "One says 'D*kes Don't Want D**k Get Over It' and the other says, 'Women Have V*g*n*s Get Over It.'" The vulgar photo may be seen here.

So vulgar! I'm clutching my pearls!

My second most favorite part of this story is that the Farcebook page is private, for members only. The "offending" picture (of t-shirts with printing on them, for fuck sakes) is not public and no one can see it. So Farcebook management is looking pretty red-handed today, censoring an old lady over nothing.

Of course to the Woke(tm) activists, Ben-Shalom is literally worse than Hitler, for daring to suggest that men can't be lesbians. They called the cops on some radical TERFs the other day in England for the same thing, a banner that said "Lesbians do not have penises."

There's something about a bald statement of the obvious that sends these tranny-activists into a frenzy. Meanwhile, actual transgender people are starting to disavow all this stuff. Blair White, for example.

But then actual transgender people tend not to be pedophile perverts trying to rope town councils into paying for "topless pool parties for 12 year olds" and using the law to make unwilling immigrant women wax their balls. Which they still have, while declaring themselves a whamyn.

My most favorite part is that radical lesbian man-hating feminist Miriam Ben-Shalom is being defended, not by the Left, her comrades in arms, but by PJ Media. The Right. The horrid NeoCons, the Hitler Youth, the Nazis, the Fascist swine that Antifa exists to punch. Yeah.

Dear Lefties, we can see you for what you are.

A list of themes I've seen enough of.

From Sarah Hoyt's post yesterday, following the chain of links to the original, I came upon this list:

  • There is no truth, only competing agendas.
  • All Western (and especially American) claims to moral superiority over Communism/Fascism/Islam are vitiated by the West's history of racism and colonialism.
  • There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor.
  • The prosperity of the West is built on ruthless exploitation of the Third World; therefore Westerners actually deserve to be impoverished and miserable.
  • Crime is the fault of society, not the individual criminal. Poor criminals are entitled to what they take. Submitting to criminal predation is more virtuous than resisting it.
  • The poor are victims. Criminals are victims. And only victims are virtuous. Therefore only the poor and criminals are virtuous. (Rich people can borrow some virtue by identifying with poor people and criminals.)
  • For a virtuous person, violence and war are never justified. It is always better to be a victim than to fight, or even to defend oneself. But 'oppressed' people are allowed to use violence anyway; they are merely reflecting the evil of their oppressors.
  • When confronted with terror, the only moral course for a Westerner is to apologize for past sins, understand the terrorist's point of view, and make concessions.
The title of the original post was "Gramscian damage," which I have seen around but I never knew what "Gramscian" meant. So I looked it up. It is for Antonio Gramsci, a Marxist propagandist and general issue a-hole.

Reading the list, I'm struck by how often these themes are the entire basis of fiction and films. Not a complete list, but good for a start. These themes infest recent science fiction to the exclusion of all else. Anti-colonialism is particularly popular as a cause in itself.

For me, the presence of any of the above bullshit in a story is reason to put it down. As soon as I come to "the poor are victims" or "violence and war are never justified" I'm putting the thing back on the shelf and moving on.

So, all you authors out there, fair warning. Free country so you can write whatever you want, but if anything on that list forms the basis of your book, I will not be reading it. I'm done reading about that.

#MeToo is over because Dems need Al Franken's senate seat.

Sometimes it is truly amazing, watching these socialsts maneuver.

Democrats and liberals in the news media have found a sudden nuance when defining "sexual misconduct," though the concept was conveniently a lot more clear-cut when a Supreme Court seat was on the line just 10 months ago.

The New Yorker's Jane Mayer published a lengthy article Monday that all but clears disgraced former Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., of the multiple accusations of sexual assault he faced in 2017, which ultimately led to his resignation from the Senate.

Mayer offers a sympathetic ear to Franken, who believes he was wrongly shafted. She gets testimonials from Senate Democrats who have since come to regret their initial demand that Franken resign. And she casts doubt on the allegation that started Franken's pursuit because the victim, Leeann Tweeden, may have misremembered insignificant details about the time Franken forcibly kissed her and touched her breasts while she was unconscious.

Yeah, so don't #BelieveTheWoman if there's a DemocRat senate seat involved.

Amazing that some random journalist bozo thinks she can stuff the #MeToo tsunami back in the bottle over a frigging senate seat.

"Shut up, bitch!!!" explained the Canadian Government.

Apropos of the men "competing" as women in boxing and wrestling, and essentially beating up girls, I present this fairy tale:

Once upon a time in the Frozen North, some guy decided he was a woman, put on a dress and went around demanding everybody treat him as a woman. Most people decided it wasn't worth dealing with the guy, and said "Fine, whatever." This made him very angry.

Where he finally got the push-back he wanted was by demanding "Brazilian Waxing" services from ethnic women who work out of their homes.

Naturally, young and physically small Indian and Philippine women were his targets. He did not attempt to get a Brazilian from Fraulein Greta the shot-put champion because she would have punched him out. He picked little 98lb brown women. They, obviously, told him: "No, I am not going to wax your balls in my home where my kids are, your weirdo."

Yes, there is a real-world case that resembles the above fairy tale:

This is the case of Jessica Yaniv, born Jonathan Yaniv, who has filed complaints against more than a dozen female waxers with the Human Rights Council (HRC) in British Columbia. Yaniv claims that the women's refusal to give him a Brazilian – that is, to handle his penis and testicles and to remove his pubic hair, activities these women did not want to carry out – is discrimination. Yaniv says that self-identifying as a woman is sufficient to be treated as a woman and to get access to services typically reserved for women.

It is not enough to force a Christian baker to make wedding cakes for gay weddings. That's so last year! Now you're going to wax that woman's balls! Because women have balls now! [wait, what?]

The author concludes:

The suggestion that these Canadian female waxers are 'transphobes' because they refused to wax a dick confirms the cynical, sinister nature of that term 'transphobic'. It really is just a way to demonise and punish anyone who refuses to bow down to the ideology of genderfluidity. It is stick used to beat those who refuse to buy into the Orwellian notion that war is peace, freedom is slavery, and a penis can be female. You can now be a bigot simply for believing in reality itself, in this case that people with penises are not women. Pressuring women to handle male genitalia against their will is dreadful and it suggests woke politics has now crossed the line from irritating to disgusting.

I would contend that "woke politics" crossed the Disgusting Line with the #BakeMyCake! thing, but that is a mere quibble.

Where we're really at today is White men oppressing women of colour and attempting to sexually abuse them, under force of law.

Like nobody saw this coming. And you Lefty fuckers wonder why we look at you sideways.

Update: Ms. Jessica Yaniv has a "history" as they say.

Upperdate: A clarification for the lawfare inclined: I have no problem with Ms. Yaniv being a woman, and I have no problem with Ms. Yaniv bringing a suit before the BC Human Rights Commission. My problem is that the BC HRC exists at all. It is an affront to freedom and human decency, and should be dismantled immediately.

UppityUpperdate: Ms. Yaniv is (possibly, maybe, we're not really sure because Twitter didn't say) the complainant who got Lindsay Sheppard kicked off Twitter. And previously Megan Murphy (maybe, because again, Twitter never said.)

New Upperdate: Ms. Yaniv wants to host a "topless pool party" for "LGBT" 12 year olds, at a public pool, with no parents allowed, and she wants the Township of Langley BC to pay for it. As one does, apparently.

You know, it is remarkable how wrong this stuff looks when all you do is report the bare facts. No bold accusatory rhetoric or embroidery required. You just repeat the request in plain language, and the fundamental wrongness fairly boils off it. Gives you an idea what kind of MUTANTS are working in the Canadian civil service, and what they are working toward.

UppityUpUpperdate: Conservative weighs in with a hearty "I Told You So, You Lefties!!!" Bro seems to be missing the point though:

I’m all for letting bygones be bygones. But can we now please finally all realize that there are real policy and personal implications to this rash decision to suddenly change the definition of men and women?
 No, dude. There will be no bygones, no gracious apology. There will be more, harder and faster as the Left frantically clings to this issue like a dog fucking a football. This isn't about "policy," as all you Conservative wonks persist in thinking. This is the Left moving to oppress and cow normal people into hiding. Yaniv is a temporarily useful tool, which will be used up and abandoned when it breaks. The Left hates Yaniv, they hate women, they hate brown people, and they hate you.

Once you understand that the Left is motivated by nothing but the urge to destroy, then you'll be dealing with Reality.

ItIsOnNowUpittydate: Looks like one of Ms. Jessica Yaniv's alleged 14 year old victims saw Yaniv's picture, and came out with guns blazing. Alegedly there's a whole swarm of them out there.
You know that thing they say, that there's no such thing as bad publicity?  They're wrong about that.

Nobody wants Jane Bond.

The great uproar of the interwebz this week is the casting of a black lady as the new 007 in the next Bond movie. Nobody is down with it, everyone knows its going to be stupid.

Trina Parks says she is against the potential plot twist - insisting the Bond movies have already done huge amounts for Hollywood diversity, she said in an exclusive interview with DailyMailTV.

Parks famously made history as the first black Bond girl appearing in Diamonds Are Forever as assassin Thumper alongside Sean Connery in 1971.

Speaking from her New York home, the 72-year-old actress said: 'Lashana is a great actress, but I don't really agree with her becoming 007. It is not about her color, but just because Bond, the spy code-named 007, was written by Ian Fleming as a man.'

She continues,

'So a black James Bond sure, I don't see why that could not be a move, but as a man. Miss Bond doesn't have the same ring to it. 

'I think that there are lots of movies already where you have a woman taking center stage, defeating men - and I like that.

'But I don't feel that the James Bond franchise has to go there.'

Because a 110lb woman killing 220lb men in hand-to-hand combat doesn't look any less ridiculous when a black woman is doing it than when a white one does it. Its a stupid idea.

The other, glaring issue is that they're doing a James Bond movie that doesn't have James Bond in it.

I think what most people are concerned about is that the movie makers have succumbed to the illusion that progressive Leftist themes sell movie tickets. They still don't understand that the only BIG movies of the last ten years are the ones with the least amount of Leftism on screen.

Or worse, they do understand and they're destroying these franchises deliberately.

"Shut up, Canadian!!!" explained the Chinese sponsors.

I would say, offhand, that these boys are buying themselves an ass kicking. You do not come to Canada and tell the people who live here to shut up. It is really not a smart idea.

A Falun Gong practitioner (who is a Canadian and a white guy) says the CEO of Ottawa's dragon-boat festival ordered him to take off a T-shirt advertising the Chinese spiritual group, citing in part China's sponsorship of the popular event.

John Brooman also threatened to have other Falun Gong practitioners removed from the public park in which the festival took place last month if they didn't leave voluntarily, says Gerry Smith, a retired Nortel Networks employee.

Emphasis mine. Why would John Brooman, CEO of the Ottawa dragon boat race festival, another Canadian white guy, give two shits about Falun Gong as a group, or people doing the exercise in the park?

The Chinese embassy in Ottawa is listed as a "gold sponsor" of the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival, which also receives funding from companies and federal, provincial and city governments.

Because money. That's why.

Also Mr. Brooman appears to be some sort of Liberal Party of Canada apparatchik, factotum or other sort of minion, so he probably got orders to see those dangerous troublemakers off. This is the exact equivalent of chasing a bunch of old ladies out of a public park for doing Tai Chi. Or playing checkers, for that matter.

But you know, Canadians are funny. We put up with an awful lot of shit from our governments, but one thing we don't put up with is officials throwing their weight around and breaking the rules. You don't get to throw Canadians out of a public park because they are inconvenient to a foreign power. That's a Rule. Nobody will put up with that.

Therefore, this little issue is going to go exactly the opposite to the way the Chinese Embassy wants it to. This has the potential to become an issue in the national election.

More girls on the bench in New Zealand

The headline says it all:

Transgender weightlifter wins two gold medals in women's competition

Actual woman who competed gets silver, and told to shut up.
In second place was Samoa's 18-year-old weightlifter Feagaiga Stowers, who won her nation's second gold medal last year after Hubbard was forced to withdraw due to an elbow injury.
Humanity is a sexually dimorphic species. Males are bigger and stronger than females. That's how it is. Politics does not change that, any more than Canute could order back the tides.

As people who used to be men increasingly compete in these sporting events, women will increasingly remain in the also-ran category. For a while anyway, until they become angry.

The correct course of action would be to create a special category, and let trans compete against each other. But that is not what's being done, because politics.

The other course of action is rebellion. Women athletes refuse to compete with them, and let the chips fall where they may. I expect that's where we're going to end up, and probably soon.

Lindsay Sheppard kicked off Twitter

Why is anyone still on Twitter? Seriously. Let them go bankrupt, ladies and gentlemen.

What white people -really- are.

I hear a lot of chatter on the Interwebz about Whiteness this and Whiteness that. 

Dear Ivory Tower Socialists and Feminist Theory weenies, you have no idea what the hell you're talking about. All those micro-agressions and colonialism this and every other thing you think white people are, we're not those things. 

Our culture, our nations, our Western civilization, this is us trying to be good. That's our nature harnessed and made to work. Unleashed, its so much worse than that.

Do not pull on this thread. You will not like what is in there.

(And all you White people who watched the whole thing, go ahead and tell me you didn't feel the monster trying the bars of its cage.)

"Shut up, Jews!" they explained.

You don't see that one every day, do you? Jews have been holy to the Holier Than Thou intellectual community since 1945. But now they are under the bus, ladies and gentlemen.

The world of literature, where Jews have made so many invaluable and long-standing contributions, is succumbing quickly to the new anti-Semitism.

The most recent example comes from the United Kingdom. Two cultural organizations in England have just rejected hosting talks by novelist Richard Zimler—explicitly because he's Jewish. In the Guardian, Zimler writes of the conversation with a friend in which he learned of the trouble: "'They asked me if you were Jewish, and the moment I said you were, they lost all interest,' he said. "'They even stopped replying to my emails and returning my phone messages.'"

Zimler had been hoping to promote his new novel, The Gospel According to Lazarus, and up until his friend confirmed the author's Jewishness, these unnamed organizations had been interested. And then they weren't. "It made Britain seem like a place I didn't know and maybe never knew," Zimler writes. "Even just asking about my religious affiliation struck me as outrageous.

It gets a bit more outrageous when you consider what Zimler's publicist had to say to the Observer—while not revealing his own name: "I was very shocked and surprised. People in the literary world are not usually narrow-minded. Everyone who knows Richard knows he is his own person."

Zimler "is his own person"? That's a curious defense, isn't it? It's hard not to think that what he meant was that Zimler, while Jewish, isn't a Zionist puppet and can, therefore, be tolerated.

 Of course that's exactly what he meant, and its why he didn't reveal his name. Jews are "tolerated" based on the quality and amount of their virtue signaling. Unless you are a trans-ally, post-feminist, atheist and leader of the local chapter of Divest Israel, you are not to be tolerated. You're a Deplorable. Just like every other white man out there.

In Britain the purity spiral has accelerated to such a degree that Jews have become persona non grata right along with those odious Christians and [shudder] Americans. And TERFs. Oh, and gay men, they are also now officially uncool.

So, ladies and gentlemen of the Jewish persuasion, welcome to the under-the-bus experience. Feel free to relax with a cigar and some of this lovely port we White Men have over by the differential as the purity spiral accelerates.

"Shut up, Christian!" they explained.

An uproar in Oz caught my attention, apparently some Aussie Rules football player lost his multi-million-dollar job because he dared to have an opinion.

The firing of one of Australia's best-known sports stars for saying gay people are headed for hell has exposed social fault lines and sparked debate about what constitutes religious expression.

Rugby Australia tore up Israel Folau's multimillion-dollar contract last month after he posted on Instagram in April that gay people, adulterers and atheists were living in sin and would go to hell unless they repented.

The sport's national governing body said Mr. Folau breached its code of conduct, which calls for the respectful use of social media, and was fairly dismissed. "This is an issue of an employee and his obligations to his employers within the contract that he signed," Rugby Australia said.

To be perfectly crystal clear, that view is not controversial in Christianity. According to the bible, Hell is where unrepentant sinners go. The whole purpose of having Christianity and churches, historically, was to keep people out of hell. Like it or hate it, that's what Christianity is about.

Where we are right now is that mentioning your Christian beliefs on Instagram can legally get you fired in Australia. Mr. Folau is about to test that legality in court, something that in a free country he wouldn't have to do.

Canada is in worse shape, someone already tested this in the Supreme Court of Canada and lost. His crime was leafleting cars in Calgary, if I recall correctly. You can't say that sinners go to hell in Canada. You'll go to jail. Probably not what the people who made those laws had in mind, but that's how it turned out.

However there are quite a few people quite openly preaching that Israel should be destroyed, and none of them have gone to jail for it. So the law does seem to be squarely aimed at traditional Christianity and its adherents, two of whom have gone to jail so far. The leaflet guy, and some old lady praying in front of an abortion clinic.

How long before the law gets used to suppress any speech not approved by the ruling party? Thus far the government of Canada (and Britain, Australia, America) has let the private sector do all the censoring of political speech, but it is only a matter of time before openly supporting the party not in power becomes a criminal offense.

Dear liberals and useful idiot SJWs, this is not going to turn out the way you think. Sooner or later, people will start going to jail for stuff they said. That's how this type of thing inevitably ends up. Just letting you know that history predicts it 100%.

Just keep voting Liberal and we'll all presently find out.
