the Air Vent

Because the world needs another opinion

I’ve always written what I believe to be true.  It is a hallmark of the Air Vent that at the drop of a fact, my opinion will change.  I’ve demonstrated this so many times in a much more public setting than the Air Vent currently is, but in that I will NOT change.

Today Donald Trump wrote a letter which actually had quite a bit of original Trump content, that was 100% TRUE.  No falsehoods, no exaggerations, no twisting of political ‘facts’.  Air Vent worthy. 

Completely true.

Here it is

Additional diatribe below:  Your own risk.

Our country has never faced a worse situation than we are in now.  Not because Trump will be removed, but rather because the press has abdicated its responsibilities to truth.  They have not abandoned truth in favor of profit, as many will assume, in fact the opposite has happened.  They are abdicating truth in favor of government power, to an extreme not seen in recorded history.  Nearly half of the country still thinks the president should be impeached, despite an actual zero evidence situation.  ZERO.

Innuendo and difference of opinion are equivalent bars to high crimes.

No crimes are asserted, no treason, no bribery, no quid pro nothing, only innuendo.   The Democrats literally didn’t bother to accuse Trump of a single criminal act.  The impeachment is a complete and unequivocal farce.  For those who know me and may disagree, you need to educate yourselves on the situation.  I doubt any regular readers here haven’t already figured it out though.

While I am pleased that this craziness will likely result in Trump’s re-election, the situation where we have the majority in congress able to impeach for NO crimes or misdemeanors is dystopian at best.  Yet the media enables it. A proper media would save the constitution from the abuses of the authoritarian left.  Yet they don’t tell the public any of the truth.

We just watched the congress hold ‘hearings’ with NO republican witnesses allowed.  NOTHING. Every attempt to introduce witnesses by the Rebublicans was blocked. The media didn’t tell you about that — did they?   NO. We just saw articles of impeachment with NO crimes enumerated.  Zero crimes!! NOTHING against the law.  Yet still no media response.

Think about it !!!

Worse yet, the only SINGLE witness to the president’s thoughts was an individual who was expected to help the Democrat efforts, Sondland who said:

 And he said, I want nothing. I want no quid pro quo. I just want Zelensky to do the right thing, to do what he ran on, or words to that effect.

It’s completely Orwellian what we are looking at. Half the country is so inundated with fake news that they can’t see the incredible danger we are in from this false procedure. What if every congress impeaches when the other party is in power? How can a president govern with constant nonsense. How can it be remotely good for America?

Literally within hours after being elected and WAY before taking office, the democrats were talking impeachment. Fake FISA investigations followed by FAKE impeachment.

It’s not good folks, we are in very big trouble if this behavior is allowed to continue.

The swamp is deep!!

Climategate 10 Years Later

Posted by Jeff Id on December 12, 2019

Ross McKitrick and Steve McIntyre have written an article on the impact of climategate.  With Michael Mann’s fake defamation lawsuit in progress, it is particularly appropriate at this time.

Highly recommended read which somewhat confusingly was not put up at Climate Audit blog.


Steve McIntyre and I have written a retrospective and evaluation of the issues raised by Climategate and the inquiries that followed from it:

It’s hard to believe that a decade later the controversies are still resonating, even to the point of having bearing on a decision of the US Supreme Court last week (via a point made by Justice Alito in his dissent), as well as a decision this past summer in a BC court pertaining to the dismissal of a defamation case. We discuss these things and many many more. We had hoped to write a short summary of a few key items, but ended up going deep into some topics that are still pertinent and subject to widespread misunderstanding and misinformation.
