Nothing to See Here, Folks. The Lamestream Media on Climategate

November 28, 2009

Remember the good old days when people used to make jokes comparing the New York Times to Pravda, and it was considered an insult to the New York Times? Now, the publishers of The Pentagon Papers have suddenly decided that the “public’s right to know” does not extend to things that damage the editorial page’s political stance, while Russian TV hosts important public debates.

During the Bush Administration, it was Pulitzer material to expose anti-terrorism methods and operations including:

  • The Terrorist Surveillance Program
  • How we tracked terrorist financing
  • Exposing secret terrorist holding facilities in allied countries
  • Exaggerated accounts of terrorist interrogation

But when it comes to the hundreds of emails exposing the “scientists” who are manufacturing fraudulent data that is being used to seize control of the U.S.—and world—economy in the name of “global warming,” the New York Times is suddenly queasy about exposing documents that were “never intended for the public eye.” The last time they kept a secret this well, was when Stalin was starving millions of Ukrainians to death.

But the New York Times is not alone.  Despite stories on every network that Barack Obama is going to Copenhagen to advocate for a “climate change” treaty, NONE of them have reported on this story—not even to try to refute it.

In this upside down world, the only good public debate on Climategate broadcast anywhere other than Fox News, is on something called Russia Today. Alice, please check in, Wonderland is calling.

Of course the media has also protected us from other news stories that might just confuse us and take us off the Obama storyline:

Of course, they have a habit of not wanting to remind us of the nature of our enemy.  So, they have also “protected” us images of 9/11, especially those of people forced by the flames to leap to their deaths from the World Trade Center. So, I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that when Barack Obama is making an overseas trip to lead the world to the promised land of continuously moderate weather, that the sycophantic American media would ignore the fact that the case for man-made global warming is crashing and burning in spectacular fashion all around them.

Nothing to see here, folks.  Move along.

Just a few months ago, the nets all made little mea culpa statements about “missing” the ACORN story.  Now, they are willing to look even more ridiculous with their don’t-confuse-us-with-the-facts-our-mind-is-made-up stance, ignoring a huge story staring them in the face—complete with documentation!

Maybe Anita Dunn’s shot across the bow worked.

And they wonder why they are losing viewers and readers by the day.

    I’d really like to know what actually happened here. I can’t seem to get a straight story from the press, or anywhere else.

    Were these files hacked, stolen, found, leaked, disclosed, or what?

    The East Anglia website still maintains the files were “stolen” (as of last night, anyway).

    The “Two M’s” have turned out to be Canadians. It seems they availed themselves of a Russian site or program to access the CRU files. Whether or not this was a hack or a “criminal breach” is still unclear.

    Perhaps there was a Mole at CRU who released the files. Or, the information was inadvertently left in a non-secure place on the CRU system, and was accessed legitimately.

    I understand that how these emails were accessed probably has little bearing on their content, but understanding what happened will help to clear some of the static.

        Jack;

        Were these files hacked, stolen, found, leaked, disclosed, or what?

        We may never know, however the answer is irrelevant because all of the original data upon which the entire world wide AGW conspiracy was based, which just happened to be kept there at CRU, conveniently DISAPPEARED a few months ago.

        Here’s proof that the lying weasels at CRU (and elsewhere) knew the jig was up and started to cover their a$$es back in September when this was first announced.

        http://www.tncd.com/ebs/dog.ate.data.pdf

        We’ve known for certain for quite a while that the AGW theory is bogus:

        http://scienceandpublicpolicy.org/images/stories/press_releases/Press-Release_No-Climate-Crisis.pdf

        So to get back to your question:

        “Were these files hacked, stolen, found, leaked, disclosed, or what?“

        If I had to guess, I’d say that one of the scientists who got roped into this charade, & got hooked on all the grant money, finally got an attack of guilt, and knowing that the jig was up back in September, decided to make a grand gesture, and covertly, became a whistle blower by gathering and releasing these eMails.

        BTW: Excellent article David !

      The most important thing to note is they are claiming they were “stolen.” NOT THAT THEY ARE FAKED. So in a real sense, they are authenticating the emails by their statement.
      If it were a story about a classified operation to keep the American people safe and hurt our enemies, the media would not only run with it, the word they would use is the far more neutral, “leaked.”

    Recently, I wrote extensive comments on a site sponsored by a local newspaper. Soon, debates began to arise between conservatives and many leftists. These argument then evolved into arguments between Christians and non-believers which ultimately, gay rights became the central theme by those controlling the site.

    I point this out because it is happening all over the country. Once respected publications have decided to become aligned politically. This phenominum has effectively made it difficult for the news media to expose corruption in the government.

    Now, while politicians squander our money, the news media is locked in a battle between themselves for survival.

    It’s time for lawyers and lawsuits ! Use the lefts own weapons against them…

    They have cost people, economies and businesses billions, maybe trillions. Not to mention brainwashing a whole generation of kids and young adults with a story based on fabricated data and faulty science. This is without a doubt the greatest scientific scandal of the modern era – spinning the natural warming/cooling cycles of the earth into a fairy tale of catastrophe climate alarmism to support their far left agenda.

    There has never been a better time to for people around the world to stand up and say “enough is enough” with this crap. Spain has “tanked” their economy in pursuit of the AGW doctrine and Europe is not far behind. They should be the first to file lawsuits against the UN’s IPCC and those individuals involved to recover lost investments from the IMF until both are broken to the ground for this crime.

    Gore and the AGW group did not want a debate. So we will honor that position and not allow them to debate their points at the forth coming trials. Gore’s movement will be responsible for bringing down the IPCC, IMF and his Nobel Prize will need to be melted down to pay for his legal expenses…

      Lawyers protect lawyer, and our government is full of them.

    Climategate

    Let’s see:

    a) subverting the peer review process
    b) stacking the UN IPCC
    c) obstruction of the Freedom on Information Act
    d) breach of university and state ethics codes

    … and we haven’t even talked about the data yet.

    Climate Science – the new Ponzi scheme!

    p.s. – Is this what Science is all about? Meet the new boss (science), same as the old boss (religion). When are they issuing funny hats to scientists?
    p.p.s. – Who needs Wall Street when you have Science?

      Yes, and the “Green Economy” will be the next economic bubble. Hopefully, the sorry state of the current economy will stop that one before it gets going.

    I believe the NYT also ran an article revealing the site from where our unmanned drones were being launched even while their Messiah was in office. Anything to hurt the United States I guess. What does a person have to do to commit treason these days?

      It’s treason to reveal that Joe Wilson was sent to Nigeria to undercut the Bush Administration at the recommendation of his wife…

    Can a non-citizen be tried for treason during war?
    Indonesian + Muslim = illegal alien (Non American) by his own words.
    Raised by: Radical Activist, Commie recruiter, (community organizer) drug dealer, sexual pervert, child molester, and, uhm, “author.”
    Prepped/Groomed by Quincey Jones & The “O” (by their own words).
    Mentored by William Ayers, Jeremiah Wrong, Jessie Hijackson, et al…
    Follower of Saul Alinsky, Karl Marx and mohammed… & bragged very clearly, he will “stand with the Muslims!”
    Out-vacationed, out-partied, and outspent any professional politician (welfare whore) in the history of our country, while bowing to our enemies, kicking sand in the faces of our allies and destroying our sovereignty, and the world economy, while he and his band of traitors laugh at the cameras on the way to the bank!
    Will any currently in Congress grow enough of a backbone to impeach these anti-American, anti-family, anti-Christ traitors?
    If foreign terrorists (not to be confused with domestic terrorists) can be given more rights than Navy SEALS, certainly, we should be able to impeach a non-citizen and charge them all with treason?
    Sadly, I fear the thermal dynamic of Hades will promote record sales of ice skates and snowmobiles before that happens….
