Brit Hume: Obama’s DoJ resembles Nixon’s

**Posted by Phineas

More and more people are noticing the stink of coverup surrounding Operation Fast and Furious, aka “Gunwalker,” and the Obama administration’s role in it. Hume asks the question many of us want answered: What did Holder (and Obama) know and when did they know it?

BACKGROUND: Earlier posts on Gunwalker.

Why the Left’s global warming agenda is flat out wrong

**Posted by Phineas

Here’s a neat video that summarizes the problems with the Left’s argument in favor of the existence of dangerous Man-caused global warming. (1) It’s narrated by Dr. Roy Spencer, a meteorologist and AGW-skeptic. I think it frames the issues nicely.

Produced by Encounter Books and Declaration Entertainment, a bit over nine minutes long.

Dr. Spencer has also written a few books you may find of interest. (2)

Footnotes:
(1) Also known as “The problem for which there is darned little evidence and which probably doesn’t exist.”
(2) Thank you, California, for sparing me the shame of earning any of that filthy lucre through those links.

From her Facebook page:

It’s a matter of public record that I did not go to Harvard Law School, but I can add.

That’ll leave a mark.

Be sure to read the whole thing to see how she tears into Obama for his incompetent leadership, his refusal to face facts, and his blind devotion to Keynesianism: The Sugar Daddy Has Run Out of Sugar.

Nightstick. Boom.

UPDATE: And take a look at the forthcoming cover of Newsweek. (h/t Melissa Clouthier)
