Water Cooler 02/09/17 Open Thread; California Senate Leader "Half My Family Here Illegally"; Nation Editor Plays How Stupid Can You Tweet; Whistleblower At NOAA;


Isn’t he supposed to follow the laws of California ?

“…I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under [President Donald Trump’s] executive order, because if they got a false Social Security card, if they got a false identification, if they got a false driver’s license prior to us passing AB60, if they got a false green card, and anyone who has family members, you know, who are undocumented knows that almost entirely everybody has secured some sort of false identification. That’s what you need to survive, to work. They are eligible for massive deportation.
So half this man’s family is committing identity theft and tax fraud, came here illegally, all the while he is turning a blind eye to them and how many others ? You want to see why there is tribalism in America and the country is so divided you have it right there. You have someone who is supposed to be making the system working, working it for his own gain and destroying it while doing so.  What’s more anyone who is honest and playing by the rules is automatically going to be an outsider that they have to keep away.
One way or another this has to be resolved. We can only exist as a nation of laws, not a nation of tribes and gangs.

The Left Says The Damndest Things

The Nation, editor Katrina Vanden Heuvel  had this to say on twitter

Will this set Armchair Warrior McCain straight? /Russia’s apparent meddling in U.S. election is not an act of war



There’s lots of things you can say about Senator McCain, but armchair warrior is not one of them. He spent time in some of the most hellish conditions imaginable so idiots like Ms. Vanden Heuvel would never have to. At the very least she should apologize.

NOAA Climate Scientist Claims Data Manipulated To Exaggerate Warming


Remember the nearly 20 year pause in Global Warming ? Remember the Study that magically came along and adjusted it away ? Well we now have a whistleblower stating that the study was created for no other purposes than making the pause go away and bolstering then President Obama’s position at the Paris Climate Talks.

Dr. John Bates, the former principal scientist at the National Climatic Data Center in Asheville, N.C., told the Daily Mail NOAA’s 2015 study was meant “to discredit the notion of a global warming hiatus and rush to time the publication of the paper to influence national and international deliberations on climate policy.”

Bates said NOAA scientists made a “blatant attempt to intensify the impact” of global warming to eliminate the “pause” in temperature rise since 1998. The Daily Mail claims Bates showed it “irrefutable” evidence NOAA’s study relied on “unverified” data.

Bates’ objections to the paper were ignored by his superiors, who let scientists make “decisions and scientific choices that maximised warming and minimised documentation” in advance of a major United Nations climate summit in Paris, France.

NOAA has now “decided that the sea dataset will have to be replaced and substantially revised just 18 months after it was issued, because it used unreliable methods which overstated the speed of warming,”

It’s like watching the kids try to manipulate mom and dad. It wouldn’t bother me so much but science used to be pretty useful.
