      wait what?

      There are now approximately three to four known waves of migrants traveling from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Mexico approaching the Southern U.S. border. Estimates on the total number range from 10,000 to 20,000 throughout all groups.

      hmmm….

      https://wattsupwiththat.com/2018/10/29/moving-the-goalposts-ipcc-secretly-redefines-what-climate-means/

      The definition of ‘climate’ adopted by the World Meteorological Organisation is the average of a particular weather parameter over 30 years. It was introduced at the 1934 Wiesbaden conference of the International Meteorological Organisation (WMO’s precursor) because data sets were only held to be reliable after 1900, so 1901 – 1930 was used as an initial basis for assessing climate. It has a certain arbitrariness, it could have been 25 years.

      For its recent 1.5°C report the IPCC has changed the definition of climate to what has been loosely called “the climate we are in.” It still uses 30 years for its estimate of global warming and hence climate – but now it is the 30 years centred on the present.

      There are some obvious problems with this hidden change of goalposts. We have observational temperature data for the past 15 years but, of course, none for the next 15 years. However, never let it be said that the absence of data is a problem for inventive climate scientists.

      Frankly, in the cold light of day, the remnants of the KKK and white supremacists groups such as they do exist in this country (and lest we forget they are creations of Democrats and Socialists) are so minimal and marginal a threat as to be practically non-existent.

      This is my argument against the lie that Trump is signaling the white supremacy people because, as he can’t get the black vote, he needs theirs.

      The last time I checked, blacks are 12% of the population. Say about 36 mil total, assume a third of voting age, so 10 mil.

      How many white supremacy people are there?

      I rest my case.

      Read this:

      That definition is the amendment’s very first sentence: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.”

      The amendment clarified for the first time that federal citizenship precedes and supersedes its state-level counterpart. No state has the power to deny citizenship, hence none may dispossess freed slaves.

      Second, the amendment specifies two criteria for American citizenship: birth or naturalization (i.e., lawful immigration), and being subject to U.S. jurisdiction. We know what the framers of the amendment meant by the latter because they told us. Sen. Lyman Trumbull of Illinois, a principal figure in drafting the amendment, defined “subject to the jurisdiction” as “not owing allegiance to anybody else” — that is, to no other country or tribe. Sen. Jacob Howard of Michigan, a sponsor of the clause, further clarified that the amendment explicitly excludes from citizenship “persons born in the United States who are foreigners, aliens, [or] who belong to the families of ambassadors or foreign ministers.”

      https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/citizenship-shouldnt-be-a-birthright/2018/07/18/7d0e2998-8912-11e8-85ae-511bc1146b0b_story.html?noredirect=on&utm_term=.21a2109d5dea

      (much more at the link)

      If that interpretation is solid – and it looks like it is – than Trump can do it with an EO because all he’s doing is enforcing existing constitutional law.

      more…

      We first took up this question more than three decades ago in a book, Citizenship Without Consent: Illegal Aliens in the American Polity, published in 1985 by Yale University Press. Significant political and legal developments have occurred since then, but none alters our core conclusion: Under the best reading of the Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment, the citizenship status of the American-born children of illegal immigrants is not mandated by the Constitution. Rather, this clause empowers Congress to decide the matter in its policy discretion (so long as it does not violate other constitutional rights), thereby giving specific content to the principle of popular consent — perhaps the fundamental principle of American democracy — that the clause adopted.

      Four FBI employees mishandled sensitive information provided by British intelligence following last year’s suicide bombing in Manchester, a justice department watchdog said on Wednesday.

      Photographs and evidence gathered following the attack at the Manchester Arena were quickly leaked to US media, prompting Theresa May to complain to Donald Trump while British police temporarily stopped sharing intelligence with their American counterparts.

      @ eaglesoars:

      From zerohedge. Niall Ferguson has a new book out on history and present results of social networks.

      Ferguson said that the phenomenon of polarization was predictable, when one considers similar historical events.
      To understand our time, he said, you must go back 500 years to the early 16th century, when the printing press became widely available. It allowed a greater volume of content to be produced and disseminated with a lower cost of communication.

      The Mark Zuckerberg figure of that time was Martin Luther, the leader of the Reformation. Luther’s axiom, he said, was that if you could read the Bible and have a direct relationship with God, everything would be awesome. But what ensued was 130 years of conflict due to polarization. Half of the population wanted to reform the church, the other half didn’t, he said.

      The most insidious manifestation of this polarization was in the persecution of those considered to be witches. The “witchcraft mania,” Ferguson said, was not just in Salem, Massachusetts; it swept across Europe.

      Today we see a similar manifestation in the context of fake news that spreads faster than true news, which undermines our confidence in the media.

      In the realm of network science, this process is called “preferential attachment.” When you create a large network, Ferguson said, new nodes (i.e., the people who become its members) are incentivized to join the already well-connected nodes. As networks grow they are not “flat,” he said. Instead, they are highly clustered around those members with “monopolistic” power; everyone else has relatively few connections. Social networks evolve so that there are two kinds of members: users and owners. The owners become fantastically wealthy, he said. The users don’t realize that if the service if free, then they are the product.

      Networks are designed to maximize engagement, Ferguson said, and that favors moving people further out on the ideological spectrum. Studies have shown that liberals retweet content from other liberals, and conservatives do likewise. Moreover, Ferguson said that a tweet is 20% more likely to be retweeted if more emotional language is used.

      the blood transfusions should be from Jewish blood donors. This particular type of person would consider it mind altering. He would think he was permanently part Jewish then. I suppose though that maybe that is too cruel?

      Using ‘Jewish’ and ‘blood’ in the same sentence never ends well, does it? My mind goes to the centuries old (and still extant) blood libel where Jews are accused of needing Christian blood for Passover matzoh. Then other religions will (muzz) will be demanding their own special blood too. /s

      I’ve never been impressed w/Ferguson and I’m not now. He takes mediocre ideas and dresses them up in academic language. His entire ‘network’ thing is ‘people like to be liked’

      Zuckerberg created Facebook so he could meet girls, not God.

      “Witchcraft” wasn’t a mania, it was just another heresy used as a political cudgel more for asset forfeiture than anything else, see King Phillip and the Templar Knights.

      For its recent 1.5°C report the IPCC has changed the definition of climate to what has been loosely called “the climate we are in.” It still uses 30 years for its estimate of global warming and hence climate – but now it is the 30 years centred on the present.

      There are some obvious problems with this hidden change of goalposts. We have observational temperature data for the past 15 years but, of course, none for the next 15 years. However, never let it be said that the absence of data is a problem for inventive climate scientists.

      This whole shebang is a scam and has been since the get way back in the 1980s and certainly in the 1990s when all of the ‘sky is falling’ prognostications and propaganda began in earnest.

      The drafters of this bullshit have statistics qualifications and KNOW that what they are saying is Bullshit … yet for progressive political reasons as well as $$$$ Financial ones they sell their professional souls.

      The ONLY computer model out of the official 30 models that are regularly used by the UN is the Russian Model. The other 29 models bear no reality to the observed data and only the Russian Model faithfully tracks what we see in the data.

      Yet a cohort of scientists continue to look to their ‘science’ through their pocketbook!

      Corrupt bureaucrats all.

      It’s not that I don’t like it – it’s that it’s not a new observation or idea. There have been all sorts of terms for it, e.g., ‘tribalism’, etc. I’ve heard it before, we all have.

      Just saw it now.

      *First up Rabbi Ullman is a radical Jewish activist looking for the nearest fight

      *Second Randwick Council is a hive of socialists pretending to run a local body council that encompasses Bondi Beach. I suffered under their autocracy and corruption in equal measure for the first 20 years of my life. The old shibboleth (pardon the pun) says that …” you can fire a machine gun down the main street of Maroubra Beach and massacre the babies at the local creche … and still get elected to Randwick Council as long as you are a Labor candidate! ”

      *Thirdly allow Ullman and the Comrade Mayor at Randwick Council to tear each other’s throats out then just burn the council chambers to the ground (preferably with the councillors in situ 🙂 ), sow the dirt with salt and begin again.

      These two morons deserve each other.

      Most rational people just smile and watch the bloodletting from two fanatics who in reality are great keyboard warriors but would feint at the sight of actual blood …. especially theirs.

      The mayors(and there have been a few) at the all female socialist collective that pretends to be the Executive of the Randwick council, are in a state of flux currently (yet again) with Mayor Lindsay Shurey (Marxist Leninist)stepping down ‘voluntarily’ (the fraud squad must be getting close) and Mayor Kathy Neilson takes up the cudgels. It’ll be interesting to see how long she lasts, as Randwick Council attracts a long line of felonious socialists looking for a $$$$ whilst lecturing the peasants continually about their rates (local taxes). Comrade Mayor Neilson (Marxist Maoist) may have bitten off more than she can chew however as she is anti-feline and you NEVER cross a cat lover and get to talk about it.

      🙂

      Think of Randwick as San Fran but with a huge park and half a dozen golden beaches spoiled by Obama’s mural and ‘gay rights rainbow banners’ hanging all over council chambers like wet washing !

      Parker Solar Probe Instruments: WISPR

      Parker just broke the record again. The spacecraft is accelerating sunward for the mission’s first perihelion on Nov. 5th. At closest approach, the solar disk will seem 6 times wider than it does on Earth as the probe is hit by “brutal heat and radiation” (NASA’s words). Parker’s carbon-composite heat shield is expected to heat up to a sizzling 2000 deg. F.

      Parker’s prime mission is to investigate the origin of the solar wind–a project best done uncomfortably close to the star. Parker will trace the solar wind back to its source and find out how it escapes the sun’s gravity and magnetic confinement

I expected the left would blow up and get angry which they did. What I didn’t expect, at least not to this extent, and what was very disappointing was how angry the so-called conservative intellectuals got with me, and they essentially said any opposition to birthright citizenship is racist and evil and un-American

      WASHINGTON – Steven Clifford, author and former CEO of the King Broadcasting Company and National Mobile Television, told PJM that the federal government should “prohibit straight white males from voting” in U.S. elections as a way to “save” democracy. “I think it’s the only hope for democracy in America and I will be leading a great movement to prohibit straight white males, who I believe supported Donald Trump by about 85 percent, from exercising the franchise and I think that will save our democracy,”

      I don’t know who this snowflake white guy is, never heard of him, but the article is hilarious.

      ‘Anti’ doesn’t get people out to vote enough,” he added. “It’s got to help me.”

      You’ll DEFINITELY get a lot of votes if you run on banning straight white guys. Hillary got lots when she called people ‘deplorable’.
