Feed her to the pigs

No one wants to give the female San Bernardino terrorist a proper Muslim funeral.

Paying for the funeral of Malik would be a public relations disaster for anyone, said local attorney Troy Slaten, who predicted taxpayers will foot the bill for a cremation.

No need to spend taxpayers’ money on this creature; not when there are so many hungry pigs around.

High school drop out, yacht owner and Hollywood idiot “terrified” by a chinook

Leonardo DiCaprio claims he was almost swallowed by a burst of global warming.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio is being mocked for recent comments he made confusing Canada’s warm chinook winds with the “terrifying” effects of climate change.

Mr. DiCaprio, who was appointed last year as a United Nations representative on climate change, was quoted by Vanity Fair expressing alarm that while in Calgary filming his new film “The Revenant,” there would be “eight feet of snow and then all of a sudden a warm gust of wind would come,” the Canadian Press reported.

Mr. DiCaprio said he was told by locals “this has never happened in our province ever.”

“It was scary,” he reportedly told an audience at the SAG-AFTRA Foundation awards. “I’ve never experienced something so firsthand that was so dramatic.”

“You see the fragility of nature and how easily things can be completely transformed with just a few degrees difference,” he said. “It’s terrifying, and it’s what people are talking about all over the world. And it’s simply just going to get worse.”

Gwen O’Sullivan, an environmental science professor at Mount Royal University, said warm chinook winds are a common and natural occurrence for Calgary, and it’s not atypical for a foot of snow to disappear in just a day, the Canadian Press reported.

In fairness to this genius, it’s possible he was thinking of another definition of chinook, “The female equivalent of the Helicopter. When a woman spins her breasts around like the two rotors of a Chinook.”

That’s a sight that it is indeed possible no local had seen in the province before, but surely DiCaprio has – I wonder what happened that left him so terrified?

Kerry admits what we “deniers” have been saying all long

Even if we shut down the entire developed world and cut our CO2 emissions to zero, we won’t slow global warming.

Secretary of State John Kerry admitted that reducing carbon dioxide emissions in the U.S. and developed world will not help the environment or even slow down global warming at the United Nations Paris summit Wednesday.

“If all the industrial nations went down to zero [carbon dioxide] emissions, it wouldn’t be enough. Not when more than 65 percent of the world’s ‘carbon pollution’ comes from the developing world,” said Kerry in the video shown below.

So if The Church of Gaia’s plan for imposing paradise on earth requires the complete impoverishment and destruction of the First World (and no, you can’t have a carbon-free world in 15 years; you can have energy and food and heat and a fossil fuel economy, or you can have a remnant of our current population, starving under pristine blue skies), and if imposing carbon reduction schemes on the Third World will cause further impoverishment and starvation, what, exactly, is the agenda here?

Other than for people in power to concentrate that power, and to get richer?

Harrison Ford, Mr. “I often fly my plane up the coast for a cheeseburger”, tells us that we’ll just have to do without.

The Washington Post and history

first-barbary-war-1801-1805-stephen-everett

Steven Everett experiences workplace violence while performing his duties

It’s out today with an article, “The fascinating history of how Thomas Jefferson Defended Muslim Rights”

Buried at the bottom of the article (which is really about Jefferson’s defense of religious liberty as it applied to Jews, Catholics and even, gasp, Baptists) is this:

In 1765, while he was studying law, Jefferson purchased an English translation of the Koran. He later went on to criticize the religion as anti-science and anti-reason.

But that’s a quibble. What the Post entirely ignores is Jefferson’s response to Muslim terrorism and piracy off the shores of North Africa: he went to war to defend American interests, and denounced as cowards those who sought to appease the sons of Allah.

Big difference between Jefferson and the current president – in fact, there’s no similarity at all.

A tiny bit of activity reported

10 Esther Place

10 Esther Place

10 Esther Place, Old Greenwich, pending, with asking price of $3.995 million. Builder paid $1.408 for the land in 2012, if you’re looking for land cost vs selling price margin. Even a top quality build, and this is a top quality builder, leaves room for a tidy profit.

30 Buxton Landing

30 Buxton Landing

30 Buxton Landing, Riverside, is also under contract: asking $1.099 million. AE zone, with the Governor Lodge Highway overhead, but hey – it’s Riverside, I guess.

3 Juniper Lane

3 Juniper Lane

3 Juniper Lane, Riverside, near the station, asking $895,000, has a pending deal after just four days. Builder got it.

17 Salem

Cos Cob’s “Tara”, 17 Salem Street

17 Salem Street, Cos Cob, and also a builder sale, got $750,000.

12 Bonwit

12 Bonwit Rd

12 Bonwit Road, Riverside NoPo, was asking $645,000 when it got a contract. It started at $850,000. A river runs through it, but I doubt you’ll be seeing Robert Redford dropping in for a beer.

He keeps using that word; I don’t think it means what he thinks it means

Another one of the Gitmo prisoners released by our Commander in  Chief  after being “carefully vetted” is now leading an Al Qaeda cell in Yemen and urging attacks on the US.

Glenn Reynolds says this is consistent with Obama’s passion for recycling, and he’s probably right, though the limited vocabulary of our country’s affirmative-action hire may be to blame.

I’d say he’s ready to go

This sounds like fun

“The Big Short” takes on the housing bubble.

The WSJ’s Joe Morgenstern:

No nation has a corner on the cupidity, duplicity, stupidity and willful blindness that fueled the subprime mortgage bubble of the mid-2000s. Only in America, though, could filmmakers illuminate such a dire subject, and the financial debacle that ensued, with the sort of scathing wit, joyous irreverence and brilliant boisterousness that make “The Big Short” an improbable triumph.
