Editor's Note:  Let's start with a radio interview on the Scott Adams radio program with Mary Grabar, the Dissentent Prof discussing Common Core.  You can listen here:

Angela Merkel caught on HOT MIC confronting Facebook’s CEO to CENSOR anti-migrant posts- Attending a luncheon on the sidelines of a United Nations development summit in New York on Saturday, Merkel and Zuckerberg were overheard on a live transmission broadcast on the UN website as participants took their seats. After Merkel confronted Zuckerberg about anti-migrant posts, the Facebook CEO is heard responding that “we need to do some work” on the issue. Ha! This is so typical of the elites. They control policy, they control the media, they control the culture —but they can’t control the people. And this make them crazy. If they could, they would change the people. Hitler tried to do that. The truth is that almost all of my readers connect on Facebook. it is the individual’s media arm—

Obama Proselytizes for Islam at UN Summit for “Countering Violent Extremism”- Platitudes, self-righteousness, distortions, tortured reasoning, self-promotion — that’s right, it’s another major speech by Barack Obama. Mind you, while the sharia-compliant president was bloviating at the UN, another major city in Afghanistan fell to the Taliban and the House Committee on Homeland Security released a blockbuster report that called the thousands of foreign fighters who have joined to fight ISIS the “largest global convergence of jihadists in history.” “Remember that violent extremism is not unique to any one faith,” Obama told a U.N. meeting Sept. 29. “No-one should be profiled or targeted simply because of their faith… [and] we have to commit ourselves to build diverse,...

Another MAJOR Afghan city falls to the Taliban but this one is a big deal - Back in December 2014, President Obama vowed that Afghanistan would not be a source of terrorist attacks in the future, in an address just a week before the U.S. combat mission in the country ended. The Obama administration assured us we would not see Afghan cities fall. They are falling. Like dominoes. The loss of the major city of Kunduz to the Taliban is a stunning reversal for the Afghan government, deepening worries about the ability of its security forces to take the fight to the jihadis. But this is an extraordinary development. The Taliban stronghold has long been in the south. Kunduz fell this week, a large, major Afghan city in the north. TheNorth where our allies (ie Northern Alliance) were strongly anti-Taliban.

BLOCKBUSTER Report: “The danger to the homeland has never been greater,” “The largest global convergence of jihadists in history” - “The danger to the homeland has never been greater,” Michael McCaul,Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, said today on a new report on the global jihad. For years I warned that this was coming. This has been the bane of my existence. My reporting on the rise of jihad across the world was met with attacks, smears and defamation. Even still, even now with the body count in the millions, my colleagues and I are blacklisted. Ironically, the report on Obama’s gravest failure was released as he was hosting a UN summit on “countering violent extremism” (no mention of jihad, of course.) He said: We have reaffirmed again and again that the United States is not and never will be at war with...

Pamela Geller, Breitbart: Muslim ‘Foreign Policy Analyst’ Frames Carson, Trump, and Cruz for Murder Before the Fact - Check out my latest piece at Breitbart — just posted:On CNN Monday, “foreign policy analyst” Rula Jebreal said that Ben Carson, Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz would have “blood on their hands” if someone shot people at a mosque. “Foreign policy analyst” – this is a media-speak euphemism for Muslim bullies and Islamic supremacist thugs who mean to impose the sharia (do not criticize Islam) by wrecking ball. In Muslim countries, if you say anything that violates sharia blasphemy law, you are assassinated. In the West, the running dogs in the media assassinate your good name, your good character. This pre-emptive charge that these three candidates will have blood on their hands is a perfect case in point. This...

AMERICAN MUSLIM is ‘top ISIS commander’ - American Muslim Abu Abdullah al-Amriki is a top Islamic State commander. Should he be President of the United States? Dr. Ben Carson thinks not, but the media and cultural elites disagree. Hundreds of American Muslims had fled to the Middle East to fight alongside the Islamic State. Most disturbingly, “they travelled back and forth from the US with ease.” Obama calls us ignorant for linking the Islamic State with Islam. What does he call these devout Muslims? If the Islamic State is not Islamic, what is it? How did this misunderstanding of Islam become so widespread? Why are so many American Muslims joining the Islamic State? There is a very real need for Muslims in the US not just to denounce ISIS, but to teach...

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Should Not Be President - Seriously. This is what Dr. Ben Carson is talking about, and he is right. “Sharia law is for Muslims. So if there is a Muslim majority state then it has to be run by Sharia,” stated basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with surprisingly little public controversy in a September 23 interview. This statement and other elements from Abdul-Jabbar’s biography only accentuated reservations concerning a Muslim president recently raised by Ben Carson, even as Jabbar in another interviewdismissed Carson as “bigoted and irrational.”

“Ahmed Day” in NYC: Mayor de Blasio, City Council Honors Clockmed, Issues Proclamation- Here’s the message, boys and girls: devise a hoax that looks like a bomb, scare the hell out of everyone in school, and you too will become lauded and saluted the world over. Just one thing: you better be a Muslim, because if you aren’t, you’ll be expelled and ruined. Yesterday Mayor De Blasio, the city council and every other NYC political jackass honored Clockmed with “Ahmed Day.” Despite all that has come out in the wake of the time-bomb hoax, the city of New York issued a proclamation.

Green Beret discharged for beating alleged Afghan child rapist: “Kicking me out of the army is morally wrong and the entire country knows it” - But last week the Army rejected his appeal. This is the what the military, and the nation, have come to in the age of Obama. Sergeant Martland ought to be reinstated, given an official apology, and promoted. “ Sergeant 1st Class Charles Martland, the Green Beret being separated involuntarily from the U.S. Army for kicking and body slamming an Afghan police commander he describes as a “brutal child rapist,” began telling his side of the story Monday. Martland is under a gag order imposed by the Pentagon, but at the request of Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif, he wrote a statement...

The Islamic State CRUCIFIES thousands of Christians *WARNING* - This is slaughter on an industrial scale. For years, media, political and cultural elites gave been ignoring this unimaginable savagery on a scale not seen since Hitler. Hand-wringing over islamophobia (opposition to this barbarity) is the mantra of the fascists on the left. For years, the handful of us reporting on the persecution, oppression and slaughter of religious minorities under Islam have been smeared, demonized, and marginalized. In areas controlled by the Islamic State, Christians have been crucified, beheaded, raped and subjected to forced conversion. Christian children are also being sold as slaves. Time for action is long past, and what do we get? Obama addressing the world from the US yesterday blasting anyone who...

'Fall Cleaning' Challenges the Spring-Cleaning Myth - Someone, somewhere, sometime ago came up with the feel-good idea which has been widely accepted that spring was the perfect time to give the house a good, comprehensive cleaning. But when you stop to think about it, and challenge that notion with a bit of logic, don't we have it backwards? Read more.

Gelspan Files

Welcome!  - Skeptic climate scientists and their associated organizations are accused of receiving fossil fuel industry money in exchange for lying about the issue. But is there any truth to the accusation? Continue reading

“The RICO Letter’s Sole-Source Problem” - Continuing a new feature at GelbspanFiles: Small space posts like this one will be teases about the upcoming full content. Next up, a letter signed by 20 scientists to President Obama imploring him to use the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) to punish immoral “corporations and other organizations that have knowingly deceived the American people about the risks of climate change” inadvertently torpedoes its entire cause with one poorly thought-out paragraph.  Posted in Uncategorized

Anti-intellectual Claims about Anti-intellectualism - Besides revealing at this blog how the ‘industry-corrupted skeptic climate scientists’ accusation implodes from any angle it’s viewed, I also show how people willingly accept and spread the accusation while never questioning a single element of it. Today, I feature a perfect case in point where an article writer attempted to call out the ‘problem’ of stupid rationale in the global warming issue, but his efforts only result in an undesirable appearance hugely undermining the overall point of his article.

Green Corps, part 3: Flipping Senator John McCain  - So, in part one of this series, I detailed just how valued Ross Gelbspan was and arguably still is to Green Corps. In part two, I detailed the blur of influential people across Ozone Action, Greenpeace and Green Corps. Now, let’s see what that combination is actually capable of influencing, by revisiting that pair of key sentences from the National Journal article I started parts 1 and 2 with: Continue reading
 
Green Corps, part 2: Ozone Action / Green Corps / Greenpeace blur - In my blog post last week, I used a bit of likely inadvertent misinformation from a National Journal article on outgoing Greenpeace USA Executive Director Phil Radford as an item to segue into an examination of how the Green Corps organization seems to place Ross Gelbspan in high regard despite easily found problems with his narratives about ‘industry-corrupted’ skeptic climate scientists. Now, let’s re-examine that same two-sentence bit from the NJ article to illustrate how just the most basic of looks into any aspect of the corrupt skeptics accusation runs headlong into inconsistent details.

Three Degrees of Separation or Less, Part VII: To Green Corps… and Beyond - If the public saw scientists from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) engaged in heated debate with skeptic climate scientists, it would be deadly to the notion of catastrophic man-caused global warming. They’d shrug their shoulders at complicated science terms, dismissing both sides with, come back and tell us what you know when you really know what you’re talking about.” Do ordinary environmentalists with no climate science expertise kill that situation with carefully memorized citations of superior IPCC arguments? No, they say there are multi-thousands of scientists comprising a scientific consensus against a handful of skeptics who are ‘paid industry money to manufacture doubt’. But how exactly do you get that idea out to everybody? Continue reading

Obama Makes Clear that Some People have More Equal Rights than Others - The thought that some people are granted a status that allows them to supersede the rights of others should be appalling. And though the founding documents make clear that our forefathers were not egalitarians, the thought that all men were not equal under the law would have shocked and angered them. But when we get to certain topics and situations, we find that our legal system has failed to prove adequate. And Obama’s recent speech will help us to illustrate what I mean.
 
FFRF Once Again Threatens But the Citizens of Hawkins TX Refuse to Concede - At least once a month the Wisconsin-based atheist group, Freedom From Religion Federation, finds and threatens some school or civic organization. Most of these municipal targets are found in states other than Wisconsin, and have nothing to do with the organization or its members. They breathe threats at these people and wait to see them scurry to comply. But this reign of terror might be coming to an end.Christian News reports A Texas man is fighting back against efforts to remove a “Jesus”……
 
Hillary Clinton Continues to Make Light of Her Email Scandal - Hillary Clinton made a Sunday appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press with Chuck Todd where she continued to make light of the email scandal that is currently consuming her campaign for President.Over the last couple of days more damning evidence has come out implicating Hillary Clinton (and her subordinates) in a devious crime against our nation.With the evidence mounting and the excuses proving to be… weak… it’s simply amazing that Clinton would continue to pretend that her self-created….
 
Clinton Excuses Bad Behavior by Saying People Didn’t Care About it Before - Hillary Clinton is a piece of work.Seriously.The Democrat presidential frontrunner was a guest on NBC’s Meet the Press with Chuck Todd on Sunday when she was forced to talk about a few things she probably would prefer to never hear about again. Specifically, Todd wanted to focus in on the email scandal that the Clinton campaign has been embroiled in, but to a larger point they discussed the many (MANY) scandals that Hillary and her husband former President Bill Clinton have been connected.....
