California Introduces Law To Jail Anyone Who Questions Man-Made Climate Change: “First Amendment Now Dead”

Excerpted from The Washington Times: A landmark California bill gaining steam would make it illegal to engage in climate-change dissent, clearing the way for lawsuits against fossil-fuel companies, think-tanks and others that have “deceived or misled the public on the risks of climate change.”

The first-of-its-kind legislation — Senate Bill 1161, or the California Climate Science Truth and Accountability Act of 2016 — is scheduled for floor action Thursday after clearing Senate committees in April and May.

The measure would allow state and local prosecutors to pursue claims against climate-change skepticism as a violation of the state’s Unfair Competition Law [UCL], as well as extend the four-year statute of limitations for such claims retroactively to Jan. 1, 2021.

“This bill explicitly authorizes district attorneys and the Attorney General to pursue UCL claims alleging that a business or organization has directly or indirectly engaged in unfair competition with respect to scientific evidence regarding the existence, extent, or current or future impacts of anthropogenic induced climate change,” says the state Senate Rules Committee’s floor analysis.

While the measure enjoys broad support by a bevy of environmental groups, the bill has also been described as an effort to ban free speech on climate change as well as chill donations to free-market groups.

Stephen Frank, editor of the conservative California Political Review, called the bill a “totalitarian statement by Democrats that the First Amendment is now dead.”

“Did you donate to the Pacific Legal Foundation? Do you support Americans for Prosperity? Are you a member of the California Republican Party, which has a platform approving of all forms of energy, including fossil fuel (oil)? Do you work for a gas station, an oil company, have your written a letter to the editor in favor of oil drilling?” asked Mr. Frank in a May 31 post.

“If so, you could find yourself with being charged in a court of law, thanks to SB 1161,” Mr. Frank said.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris belongs to a coalition of 17 state attorneys general that joined forces in March to pursue climate-change skeptics, starting with ExxonMobil.

The bill declares that there is no legitimate disagreement on the causes and extent of climate change, stating that, “There is broad scientific consensus that anthropogenic global warming is occurring and changing the world’s climate patterns, and that the primary cause is the emission of greenhouse gases from the production and combustion of fossil fuels, such as coal, oil, and natural gas.” Read the whole thing

  • The left and the Democrat Party is filled with totalitarians, but equally disturbing is that the Republican Party is filled with people who believe they can sit on the sidelines and do nothing — thinking a piece of parchment in a Washington DC archive called the “Constitution” will protect them. It will not! We must protect the Constitution or the left will simply shred it. That takes action — not comfort in the system run by mindless bureaucrats.

      It will take a revolution like no other we have ever experienced. It will take a revolt against the liberal democrates who only want to destroy our freedom. It’s no surprise these varmits are so in favor of gun control. Start buying ammo while you can still find it.

      • Political Outsider

        There will be blood

      • huecityvet1968

        Whats going to be good about a revolution or revolt we the people that the leftists, liberals, commies hate have all the guns. Over 300 million of them.

        • Bob K.

          The trouble is there is not a dimes worth of difference between the democrat and republican parties anymore The supposed “Conservatives” support attacking all these countries that did nothing to us and are not doing a damn thing about all the Muslim scum that are being brought into our country to take us down.

          • huecityvet1968

            Bob your so right about that. But at least Trump has a plan to stop this uncontrolled illegal invasion. But I fear the overall fix is in for the Hildabeast coronation. We will have our second royal family, Obama being the first. The Hildabeast has gotten rich off the donations or more to the point “bribes” from Rag Head countries that are sworn enemies of America. I spent a number of years working & living in the Middle East and Africa and I can tell you most of them want us dead. They don’t us to assimilate to Islam they want us erased from history.

          • Martolt

            I thought that Bush I and Bush II were the first American royal family…

          • JeTo

            It’s just a piece of paper to them.

          • Bob K.

            OH you better believe I have supported Trump from the get go. I was a business man on a small scale. I had a lot of connections. I know that Donald Trump is for real, he is consistent and he really is pro American. If he stands strong, maybe he can get some cooperation from the Senate and the Congress. It is going to take us, the people, to call our representatives continuously and demand they do the right thing. I just hope he does not pick an establishment VP because his life would be in real danger as JFK and Reagan who’s VPs were involved in their murder and attempted murder!

    • SentientStorm

      Protect the Constitution? Shred it? You’re a tad late. You’re like a proud father stating he’s going to protect his daughter’s virtue, and she’s 7 months pregnant.

      The Constitution has already been shredded, and discarded. We are already subject to that dreaded “New World Order” in everything but name. The tanks will appear on the streets only when they are sick and tired of still pretending that citizens have unalienable individual rights. The country was already overthrown even while those who want the Constitution upheld were voting for the government to exercise agendas they like.

      • … that’s it folks, clear out, go home, nothing to see here, it’s over, it’s lost, it’s our fault, might as well watch your favorite show and live life to the fullest, nothing anyone can do about it, game over, that shadowy New World Order has won.

        • SentientStorm

          Thank you for standing up to be my poster child, and case in point.

          By your shallow sarcasm, you highlight the American arrogance and ignorance that allowed our Liberties to be stripped from us, while we paid to put ourselves into shackles.

          Americans cannot and will not resurrect the Constitution and salvage their freedoms until they first recognize the dire situation they’re in. Currently you have no rights that the federal government’s primary purpose is to protect, and the federal government recognizes none of its limits that ensures the protection of those rights, but you seemingly wnat to contend throug some backdoor, half-assed sarcasm that the New World Order is not here, and you actually have not already lost. Perhaps you believe you can restore proper governance and your liberties by banging that dusty scrolled document and everything will magically come to order Or equally fanciful, perhaps you imagine that working within a system that is systematically corrupt might fix it. Perhaps if we would only vote harder, and vote “Conservative”, despite the fact conservatism no longer stands for anything, and does not address any of the problems.

          I am an certain we’ve lost, well, because all that we had is taken from us — that’s a loss. And also because of the attitudes of people like yourself, who aren’t really paying attention, don’t recognize the full scope of the horror we now face, and really aren’t prepared to do what is necessary. But thank you for raising your head up to serve as an exquisite exemplar of the problem.

          • The sarcasm is well deserved. People on here reading and responding for the most part are concerned about their country and want to do something positive about it. Many aren’t as informed perhaps as you — and what do you do — call them idiots and blame them. Not exactly how to influence people and create allies. If I have one complaint about those on the right — it’s that they seem just as eager to kick the teeth in of those who want to help as those who are destroying the nation. You would do better for the cause of freedom to never again write a single word on a blog.

          • SentientStorm

            Sacasm, well deserved? That sarcasm highlighted your own mental status, and it is the habitual crutch of small minds, a lazy way of engaging discussion that makes no point.

            Yes, we’re all so concerned about the country, and have been for some time now. The people have decided to vote harder, for their own populist candidate, and for American Idol.

            No, i dont run around calling people idiots unless the attack me personally when I’ve done nothing but state the obvious. It seems rather obvious that we got to our current situation because of the people’s ignorance of the terms of the Constitution, and naivete about our current condition.

            For instance, I never said we should give up simply because the Constitution is entirely overthrow, but your crutched “sarcasm” introduced the strawman claim that I had. The real condition we face is that the Constitution is no longer applied, and this is made consistently clear by the repeated actions of all 3 branches of government, each flagrantly operating by illegitimate terms that are hostile to our liberty and property. We cannot fix this by voting harder, nor by law suits, nor petitions or protests. Our country has been overthrown from within be deliberate and methodical plot. The only means to restore it is by the application of force with equal deliberation.

            Your monologue about defending the Constitution, while very romantic, had all the relevance of Don Quixote tilting with windmills, particularly since no one now knows that Constitution.

            . You think I “deserve” that sarcasm because of your naivete? Well, try something more direct, something actually honest — and make a direct argument if you somehow disagree, …. unless, of course, your thoughts are not deserving of that effort.

          • The problem is your looking for someone to argue with — rather than work beside. We agree on the problem and most likely the solution but you’re such a combative, condescending A-hole that we could never work together — thus the problem we face in America today — divided we fall. Try being a Washington rather than an Obama. Seriously, look in the mirror and make an adjustment. It will do us all good.

          • SentientStorm

            I’m looking for someone to argue with? No, I’m looking for a valid argument. You’re panties just got in a wad because I told you that defending the Constitution when people don’t know it, and it’s not in play, is a pointless exercise.

            My not agreeing with your vapid rallyhing cry is combative? No, it’s honest. If you cannot handle honesty, then dont put your thoughts out iun public. THen you call me a condescending A-hole, but you’re the one engaging in sarcasm and telling I deserve it. “Ya got me, ya got me this time, Elmer Fudd!”

            Work together? You’ve be like having the dog that doesn’t know which way to go. “That dog don’t hunt”. I’ll bet you haven’t even spent the time to detail what mosts need to be done to correct this country. If you don’t have a plan, then how can you ever succeed? If you don’t’ have a plan, then how can anyone work with you? Is your plan to “defend the Constitution”? What then? Vote harder?

            Why should anyone follow you, when you reject the idea that people don’t know the Constitution, and people don’t know the Constitution enough to know who does?

            I am neither a Washington, nor an Obama, and you need to stop thinking in convenient pigeon hole stereotypes, that allow you to not think at all. Your rendition of Washington seems to be a convenient morphosis to Rodney King “Can’t we all just get along”.

            Why don’t you look in the Constitution, learn it, and come up with a plan, or if you’re too lazy to do that on your own, then find someone who does know it. The Constitution is the one agreement we have that defines the terms of legitimate governance.

            Tell me, have you been siding with those who took a stand in Bunkerville, Nevada and Burns, Oregon, now being held is political prisoners, or don’t you recognize those terms as limiting the federal authority?

          • Blah blah blah, get the guns ma’ wer takin back the country…

          • SentientStorm

            So exactly what are you standing for? You’re standing for a constitution that you’ve not once stated the terms for, so basically it’s little more than a vacant symbol to you, just whatever you do, don’t actually use arms to ensure your unalienable rights, even as this nation’s founders did, not even if the federal government has claimed ownership over your stupid-ass body.

            You haven’t indicated one detail about the Constitution to show it’s more than a symbol. I asked you your view of the Bunkerville and Burns standoffs,and the 40+ people that are now political prisoners for standing against illegitimate federal authority, and you could care less, not adding anything more than “blah, blah blah” and your insipid, jejune sarcasm.

            I’m curious, David, exactly which chapter and verse of your Christian Heritage, are you drawing upon as an “Ambassador of Christ” in order to engage that jejune sarcasm? Evidently your immersion in Christian principle is as superficial as your understanding of Constitution and history.

          • You don’t sound the least bit curious, you keep flappin your trap, making claims and drawing conclusions, loving the sound of your own gong. You sound more like a federal interrogator — you know — like the ones you oppose, stomping on your rights? You seem to know more about me than I know about myself, so why don’t you just keep letting me know what I don’t know. You’re really good at it. It’s like seeing my own political biography come alive right in front of my eyes. Keep going…

          • SentientStorm

            i asked you a direct question twice now specifically, and at least once more than that in general terms. I should not have to beg to get you to talk specifics of the Constitution and what must be done for this country. In fact it seems to me that for one so desiring the defense of the Constitution, you should want to stipulate those specifics — but most curiously you avoid those very specifics.

            And “you sound” more like a Progressive, that chooses to attack the messenger rather than provide their own message, and then engaging in weaselly passive-aggressive tactics like sarcasm.

            David, and as far as me knowing more about you than you know about yourself, it is said that an unquestioned life, is a life that is unlived. Thus far it’s evident that I have questioned far more about your beliefs than you have ever thought to do, and that’s sad.

            Apparently you’d have us believe that every American knows the same things about the Constitution, but many believe such falsehoods as our coming from the Bill of Rights, and it might be amended, or that the 14th Amendment fabricated “citizens of the United States”, of that the federal government is incorporated, and a great deal of other very tragic mumbo-jumbo that is nothing more than uneducated superstition.

            Why don’t you cut to the chase, save us all a great deal of time, and surprise us by saying something about what you actually believe, and what mystical incantations might be used to restore legitimate governance and our liberties?

          • Jibba Bean

            Hillsdale College offers a FREE “Constitution 101” course for anyone interested in LEARNING what the Constitution is REALLY all about. If you’re going to just say “we need to take our country back” then you are one of the people that is waiting for someone else to start the process. I will tell you why the Constitution will soon be “shredded”…because we are already slaves to the system. We earn our PetroDollar to eat, heat clothe and shelter ourselves. This is like “earning a pass” to live. Therefore, you don’t want to lose all you have worked hard for, so taking that time off to “do something” is really not going to work only because everyone that DOES work for their things, can’t take the time off to “right the wrong”. Why do you think the democrats are in such strong support for the people that give stuff away? Because they are slaves of a different type, yet, they are just as much slaves as we are. Good luck with the “Revolution”, and I hope you have enough “vacation days” to get it done!

          • SentientStorm

            Jibba, yes, Hillsdale does have a Free, online Consitution course, and it’s worth every penny paid for it too.

            Four years ago i became aware in advabce if the new video lecture segments to be soon recorded and their general subject matter. I was so disturbed by what I saw, that I wrote of my concerns to Larry Arndt and the professor to do the two segments. i got no reply back, anf when the video series came out my concerns were confirned.

            The segments were on the Civil War and the threat to the Union. While I will not be providing my counter-evidence here, Hillsdale presented the belief that the union is involuntary and cannot be abandoned, misquoting Washington and misrepresenting “perpetual union” to be the same as “involuntary” in the Articles of Confederatiion

            In their rush to validate Lincoln as the first Republican President and emancipator of slaves, Hillsdale had to nullify State sovereignty, overlook Lincoln’s denial of Free Speech and habeas corpus, ignore the deaths of 300 thousand Americans and the devastation of the entire country, pretend the founders themselves never spoke on this, and be blind to the fact that any government with the power to dictate the terms of society to free one group is also able to enslave all society. That is what we have today.

            Hillsdale does NOT teach what the Cobstutution is “REALLY all about” but rather validates the corruption we have today.

            Radio talk show host Mark Levin is also a big supporter of Hillsdale’s Constitution course, to no surprise. Levin’s own proposed amendments to the Constitution all validate the corrupt status quo, while invalidating the limited Enumerated Powers of Article 1, Section 8. Anyone still listening to Levin is oblivious to what is going on.

            If you want someone who ACTUALLY teaches the Cinstitution, and not from some lifeless academic perspective, but rather in context of current events, then i recommend tge broadcasts of attorney KrisAnne Hall.

            Jibba, I am NOT just saying we need to take our country back in order to get someone else to do it. That’s a canard, with no basis in reality. The fact is any individual to act alone is only unhinged vigilantism, and dooned to failure.

            If you think that people should not have to earn an income to support themselves, then you’re advocating Communism, and a part of the problem. Petrodollars has nothing to do with this consideration.

            If you think the Democrats are the problem, then you’re stuck in the polarization of partisanship, and not really applying the Constitution at all. You’d be the problem, alongside Cruz, Romney, McCain, Rubio, Jindal, and many, many others.

            If you’re counting vacation days, then life, fortune and sacred Honor are too far above your head to have the Cinstitution have any meaning.

          • Thanks much to for the KrisAnne Hall referral. I was also [more than] a little disappointed in Hillsdale.

            I don’t know where you began your journey, but mine started as a Reaganite Republican. So, I can relate to, and sometimes even reach the neocon faux “conservatives” who adhere to the ‘praytriotic faith.’ (ask them to show you even a hint that patriotism to an earthly kingdom is specified in the Bible for believers 😉 ).

            My recommendation to everyone (particularly former military men) is to start with “A Century of War” by John V. Denson. It’s fairly short, engaging, and non-polemical. It also has a phenomenal bibliography.

            By the time you work your way through some of the items in the Bibliography, you will either have run away screaming in search of the blue pill… Or you will need to re-think a great many things.

          • SentientStorm

            Ron, if you’re just discovering Kris Anne Hall, then you’re in for a real treat. after so many people discussing the Constitution like it was a dry and lifeless study KrisAnne Hall’s direct reference of the Constitution to today’s unfolding horrots is going to be like an enormous enema when when so many to reference the Constitution treat it like a lifeless and unintelligible document.

            Hopefully you’ve found KrisAnne’s Youtube channel. The videos there will inform on issues most are not aware of (they have for me.).

            I rarely disagree with KrisAnne . I took issue with her idolizing Jefferson as her favorite founder, as he us my least favorite and directly tied to violent populist revolution and Communism. Jefferson’s support of and participation in the French Revolution is obvious, but he never recognize the difference between that Revolution and our own, even willing to reduce society to an “original Adam and Eve”.

            Jefferson was the singular cause of Washington’s caution against “entangling alliances” in his Farewell Address, as well as a prominent reason for the Alien & Sedition Acts under Adams when so many here were calling for the expanding French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars should be continued in this fledgling country. It was no mere coincidence that the office of Vice President, then occupied by Jefferson, was the only federal office not protected from criticism under the Sedition Act.

            As far as I’m concerned, the only difference between Jefferson and Che Guevara is that Jefferson didn’t actually kill anyone himself. No doubt many will consider this view extreme until they do study on their own.

            The other issue I’m not sure that KrisAnne got quite right is the terms of natural born citizen. KrisAnne started off by recommending the writings of Publius Huldah on this subject, but then herself stated the terms of natural born citizen to be birth in the country to parents who were citizens. Publius Huldah is notorious for her corrupt reading of Vattel in order to reach a desired conclusion of validating someone born overseas, entirely outside this country..

            I address this and other topics on my blog, Liberty Born:

          • JeTo

            If you understand the constitution and history, then you understand that the framers considered rights as God given. These were masons, so they didn’t mean Jehova. But to be an atheist and claim who has rights or not, is evil. The gov is there to protect our God given rights; not issue or remove them.

          • JeTo

            I own the deed; how much are you in for?

          • JeTo

            A Washington? Instead of an Obama???
            Might I point out that Mr. Washington might have owned Mr. Obama once upon a time. Also that Mr. Washington didn’t fight for anyone’s liberty; he fought for the rights of the elite property owners. Mr. King wanted to tax the hell out of them; after all the crown claimed the Americas first.
            Sorting out fact from opinion is very difficult now, even on the individual self level. Today’s history is extremely revisionist.
            Would you believe that in this day and age their are STILL people who beleive 911 was a terrorist attack? In spite of reams of science that says otherwise. The same kind of folk who think man can do as he pleases without consequence to the environment including the weather.
            This law, like so many other lib laws, is spawned by deceptive practices of the cons.
            Both parties parted from their elected responsibilities decades ago. But WE THE SHEE voted for our favorite, or least hated carnies. We empowered them to rule us, so they do. We are now upping the ante and empowering corporations to rule us……each purchase is a vote.
            Oh crap, the skies falling again; gotta run.

          • It’s all a grand conspiracy, the shadows are our puppet masters, we are but pawns in their sick game and thank goodness JeTo has is all figured out — so that we might know the truth. Set us free JeTo, set us free.

          • Political Outsider

            You’re a very negative person and very self- righteous as well. You’re an antagonistic pseudo intellectual and I am thankful that your view of our constitution is not held by those who count.

          • SentientStorm

            You know all this from reading my horoscope, or from this discussion. Suffice to say that you got your strong opinion, because you dont like anyone else having strong views that have it rise up from the sheep herd.

            Just to show you’re nothing but emotion, why don’t you tell us all what exactly you think is “my view of the Constitution” and how it might differ from those who count, like Jefferson, Madison, Hamilton, Jay, Washington and other founders?

            I gather you don’t support those who took a stand in Bunkerville and Burns against the gross federal usurpations of illegitimate authority.

          • JeTo

            yep, it’s over when it’s over. even the sarcasm is over (the top).
            but to blame the voting public or their government isn’t quite the jab needed. Nope, we should be launching roundhouses at the corporate money changers,hoarders and the power mad. In short; the lobbyists and their lofty enablers.

          • SentientStorm

            Blaming the lobbyists is the same thing as blaming people and groups of people (corporations) for having their own interests and trying to promote those. It’s silly.

            The biggest problem is that we have a private organization, the Federal Reserve, controlling our currency and the economy, and deliberately crating boom and bust cycles that allow them to take up the country’s real assets for pennies on the dollar. They are the primary malefactors controlling our government. The Fed needs to be removed, and its proponents put on trial for criminal charges, and treason.

            Then the other problems stem from an entirely criminal Congress (and federal government) that no longer recognizes the strict limitations put upon it, and also exempting itself from the laws it writes for the people.

            It is by ignoring the constitution’s strict limits that Congress can engage in agendas, writing law directly to the people, and claiming lands within the States, none of which is within its authority. The Constitut9ion is intended to prohibit the federal government from having the authority to engage any sort of agenda, by not having authority over the people in several states directly.

            Those who are not supporting those who took action at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Burns, and the Bundy Standoff in Bunkerville, may as well not be taking a stand at all, because the issues at the core in these two events are the government overreach that effects us all.

            ONLY by the federal government and Congress having the ability engage agendas, do those Lobbyists have any interest to influence government. By disregarding the constituti9on’s limits, and engaging in agendas, they feds have broken our form of government and resulted in each branch being entirely criminal.

            Andrew McCarthy wrote in excellent article about these agendas in 2010, “Empty Promise”.

        SS we have witnessed the most successful coup d’état without a real shot being fired the Anti-Constitutionalists have taken over the government. We were lulled into a false sense of security by the media and the political spin doctors and the Hussein Obama Kool aide vendors. The talking heads on either side of the aisle flat out lied to us and keep turmoil to manageable level, but kept it in our faces so they do their slide of hand. We all have issues that we focus on and if you get the patriots focused on individual issues not the destruction of the Constitution they have us beaten before we can draw a breath or bring a weapon to bear.

        • SentientStorm

          Huecity, the Constitution is not some sort of on/off button where the people can check its status, and then whack it to get it functioning again.

          We can’t just wave the Constitution “magic wand” at things and have it fixed, particularly not if we don’t know what the problems are, and are unable to identify those problems because we don’t even know the terms of legit government established by the Constitution.

          Those “patriots” understanding those individual issues is how we restore the Constitution and our Liberty. It won’t happen by those patriots remaining ignorant, and thereby ineffective.

          One of the founders said, “the people cannot be ignorant and free. If they dont start wanting to learn, then they’re gonna be slaves, no doubt about it.

    • it has always been the “Republicans” who do themselves in. I think it is because Republicans essentially don’t like belonging to a herd and want to think things through for themselves and they end up dividing over stupidities. But the Dems — their base acts just like a herd. brainless and obedient.

        so the polar bears are almost gone, the ice caps are melting, and on and on and on. Dennis, for God;s sake, pull your head out.

        • Zed

          Ice caps are melting wtf did you get that info? They have GROWN in size exponentially http://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/nasa-study-mass-gains-of-antarctic-ice-sheet-greater-than-losses UPDATE [18 May 2015]: An internal government report has finally been released on recent (2005-2011) WHB mark-recapture work (PDF HERE; discussed here) but it contains a population estimate only. It has no figures on changes (if any) on number of cubs, size of litters, or condition of bears over time for 1984-2011 (previous study period ended in 2004). The authors (Lunn et al. 2013:18) calculated a new estimate for the population at 2004 (previous count), using the same method they used for their new count in 2011; this generated an estimate of 742 (630-872) for 2004, vs. the 806 (653-984) estimated for 2011. This indicates that there has been no decline in population numbers since the last estimate was calculated in 2004.

          • walt kaiser

            ZED, could not agree more with you, I was replying to Dennis, the climate warming prognosticator.

          • robco26

            I agree that that global cooling/warming and climate change is a myth. Although there is man made geo engineering weather going on. Using NASA as a source for proving the lie of the ice caps melting is not going to get you any closer to the truth. NASA is a lie as well.

            Furthermore, there are patents for the sprays being used in the upper atmosphere. While I myself do not get the screaming meemies about chem-trails, and don’t really worry too much about them, it’s because there are far greater problems to worry about. The U.S. Government is known to have been influencing weather since View Nam — it should not even be a question.

        • There are global campaigns of cloud seeding that have shifted normal precipitation patterns. All you need to do is look at the recent weather in the US. There is above average precipitation in the east, below average in the west. Change the location of rain and climate changes. CO2 has nothing at all to do with anything.

          • SentientStorm

            To have droughts in the west, and deluges in the east, it takes a vast global conspiracy? C’mon….

    • llkenney

      The Constitution is dead only if people like you allow it. Apathy guarantees dictatorships

      • SentientStorm

        No, no, the Constitution is dead because people like yourself have not only allowed it, but also participated in the evisceration of the Constitution,

        The constitution is dead because we have participated in elections, as the upcoming one, wherein politicians advocate agendas that are in no way the legitimate authority of the federal government, and yet we’re willing to vote on those agendas as if they were, even if we don’t want them!

        The Constitution is dead because people refer to things like the “My Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms”, when that right does not come from the second amendment, it does not provide you that right, and only tells the federal government what it cannot do to protect that right.

        The Constitution is dead because we Americans allowed politicians to tell us they have de facto ownership of our bodies, and can tell us what care and maintenance we might have, when we can no longer have any, and force us into a lifetime involuntary contract not of our free will. Without our self-ownership, we cannot possibly have any rights at all, because EVERY RIGHT that exists stems from that very self ownership. Yet Americans stood idly by and let the government vote to take ownership of their bodies wihen there is no such authority in the Constitution.

        The Constitution is dead because Americans do not know it, not even now, not in our darkest hour, when knowing that Constitution might be our salvation. Instead Americans pretend they know it, because they’ve been under it all their lives, (not actually) and ignorance is easier than due diligence.

            Because the average American has no clue what the constituiton indicates, and often believes things entirely contrary to the Constitution. I know this because I’ve been writing articles and lecturing on radio programs about the Constitution for years.

    The following remarks are from S. Fred Singer an Atmospheric Physicist. He is Professor of Emeritus of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia and has served as the founding director of the U.S. Weather Satellite Service. This was in a New York City news paper in 2009. Dr. S. Fred Singer, is one of the world’s most respected and widely published experts on climate. He knows far more about climate change than Obama, Gore and for sure Bernie Sanders and Hillary.

    S. FRED SINGER

    The single most important issue is whether climate change is natural or human-caused. In principle, both options are plausible. But we know climate changes naturally, on times scales of decades and centuries.

    So which is more important: the human release of gases or natural cycles? One cannot go by the majority view–science does not work like politics.

    We cannot use the fact that there is a rough correlation between temperature increase and increase in CO2. During much of the 20th century, from 1940 to 1975, the climate cooled while CO2 levels rose. And during the past decade climate has again been cooling in spite of the rise in CO2.

    The answer is to look at the pattern of warming trends and see if it agrees with what models predict. The models all predict the existence of a “hot spot” — a maximum warming trend in the tropical region. The observations from weather balloons show the opposite result, a slight cooling trend. This disagreement between calculated and observed fingerprints of temperature trends is the strongest argument against any appreciable human contribution to climate.

    THE FOLLOWING IS PART OF THE SAME ARTICLE:

    It might make a lot more sense to draw a correlation between man-made carbon dioxide levels and the rising temperatures if the temperatures hadn’t decreased in the last decade.

    “The Earth’s climate has always alternated between warming and cooling phases,” said William Happer, who served the Department of Energy under former President George H. W. Bush. “In the medieval warming period, when the Norse settled Greenland, the Earth warmed as fast or faster that it has since the 1800’s. What should world governments have done in the year 900 A.D., when people noticed that the climate was warming and the ice was melting in southern Greenland?”

    Studies show that average global temperatures have decreased as much as 0.2 degrees Celsius over the last ten years—-just as human activity is thought to be taking its biggest toll on the planet’s climate.

    The decrease is small, to be sure, but, say skeptics, it disproves the argument that rising man-made CO2 levels are the driving force behind global warming.

    Liberal blithering idiots. That is a violation of the first amendment, of course liberals do not care about the Constitution, they walk all over it all the time.

    Come and arrest me California!!!!! Your global warming caused by humans is total liberal democrat bullshit!!!

    A German professor has confirmed what skeptics from Britain to the US have long suspected: that NASA’s Goddard Institute of Space Studies has largely invented “global warming” by tampering with the raw temperature data records.

    Professor Dr. Friedrich Karl Ewert is a retired geologist and data computation expert. He has painstakingly examined and tabulated all NASA GISS’s temperature data series, taken from 1153 stations and going back to 1881. His conclusion: that if you look at the raw data, as opposed to NASA’s revisions, you’ll find that since 1940 the planet has been cooling, not warming.

    According to Günter Ederer, the German journalist who has reported on Ewert’s findings:

    From the publicly available data, Ewert made an unbelievable discovery: Between the years 2010 and 2012 the data measured since 1881 were altered so that they showed a significant warming, especially after 1950. […] A comparison of the data from 2010 with the data of 2012 shows that NASA-GISS had altered its own datasets so that especially after WWII a clear warming appears – although it never existed.

    Apart from Australia, the planet has in fact been on a cooling trend:

    Using the NASA data from 2010 the surface temperature globally from 1940 until today has fallen by 1.110°C, and since 2000 it has fallen 0.4223°C […]. The cooling has hit every continent except for Australia, which warmed by 0.6339°C since 2000. The figures for Europe: From 1940 to 2010, using the data from 2010, there was a cooling of 0.5465°C and a cooling of 0.3739°C since 2000.

    But the activist scientists at NASA GISS – initially led by James Hansen (pictured above), later by Gavin Schmidt – wanted the records they are in charge of maintaining to show warming not cooling, so they began systematically adjusting the data for various spurious reasons using ten different methods.

    The most commonly used ones were:

    • Reducing the annual mean in the early phase.

    • Reducing the high values in the first warming phase.

    • Increasing individual values during the second warming phase.

    • Suppression of the second cooling phase starting in 1995.

    • Shortening the early decades of the datasets.

    • With the long-term datasets, even the first century was shortened.

    Ewert’s findings echo that of US meteorologists Joseph D’Aleo and Anthony Watts who examined 6,000 NASA weather stations and found a host of irregularities both with the way they were sited and how the raw data had been adjusted to reflect such influences as the Urban Heat Island effect.

    Britain’s Paul Homewood is also on NASA GISS’s case. Here he shows the shocking extent of the adjustments they have made to a temperature record in Brazil which has been altered so that a cooling trend becomes a warming trend.

    Unadjusted temperature record: shows cooling trend.

    No Data on “climate change” can be valid as long a unknown “scientists” are perpetrating this “geoengineering” aerosol nano-metal chemtrail spraying.

    Torquemada would be proud. Climate change, global warming, climate disruption, what ever they want to call it is the new inquisition. They will use “consensus” as a basis to bring the weight of law (according to their religion) to enforce compliance. That isn’t science, that’s cultism. True science doesn’t just interpret data as they see fit to comply with a chosen outcome. True science can’t be done when there are such holes in the data that they have to “fill in the blanks.” True science welcomes scrutiny and skepticism. True science doesn’t try to silence opposing ideas. True science thrives on debate and recreation of data and models. It doesn’t hide behind closed doors where their data isn’t for all to see and attempt to disprove or corroborate. The science we are told is settled is bunk. It isn’t science at all.

  • cme run

    so, we don’t buy into a theory, unproven, that attributes natural, historically proven cycles of change in the environment and weather cycles to Man With a false and unproven method of dealing with this and we are suddenly in violation of a law created by the same dill weeds that concocted this mess

  • David Morris

    There are several articles out there on this topic.

    The scary thing is the absolute rejection of the scientific process and peer review.. What happened to Scientific Hypothesis, Theory, Law Definitions.

    Come on… the most acclaimed scientist in American history… Einstein.. his publications are still theories… not scientific law…

    • SentientStorm

      David Morris, I’m not sure what point you’re trying to make, because you were doing okay with “scientific process and peer review”, and then totally derailed by trying to equate “theories” with unproven hypothesis. No, theories (for science) are made up of facts, laws, hypotheses,

      The word “Theory”, as used by the scientific community, does not equate with an untested, unproven hypothesis. A theory has been tested and proven, and is considered fact.

      The Theory of Gravity is not an unproven hypothesis, but rather is a proven set of laws, facts and principles.

      Similarly Evolution is not an unproven hypothesis, but likewise is a complex understanding of laws facts and principles.

      • David Morris

        Storm… Theories evolve from a hypothesis. The point of intense peer review serves a purpose and has discounted many a theory. If you want to have some fun, try and find specifics documenting the level of impact man made pollution has had.. and then find comparisons to the impacts of the solar cycle, volcanoes, orbital changes…

        Guess what, this settled science REFUSES to discuss alternative concepts… that makes it a religion, not a science.

        • David Morris

          Difference between theory and fact….

          In the scientific world, facts (or scientific facts) are what one can readily observe. It can pertain to any objective and real phenomenon may it be the falling of the ball after being thrown upwards or other simple observable occurrences. In this regard, the fact is that the ball will fall. More so, if this test is being done repeatedly under a controlled environment that cancels all unnecessary variables the phenomenon would have become a very obvious and undeniable fact. It is considered a fact because it will remain as true even after several centuries unless there is a more rigid and precise way of measuring a certain phenomenon.

          On the contrary, theories in science are likened to the explanations to what has been observed. It is relatively greater in weight to what a hypothesis is. If a hypothesis (an intelligent guess) is the first base of formulating a scientific law then theories are placed at the second base. These are the statements that are assumed to be true (because they seem so) even if there are no hundred percent concrete evidences. Nevertheless, theories are always presented to be true even if the claims in the said theories are mere speculations or a general agreement between a significant numbers of experts. Moreover, theories are the statements that often undergo a series of tests to nullify the claims maid by those who propose them.

          http://www.differencebetween.net/language/difference-between-fact-and-theory/#ixzz4AjUwiv4R

        • SentientStorm

          No, Theories cannot be “discounted” by peer review. Theories are not subject to opinion. In fact there has never been even one (scientific) theory discounted by peer review.

          You’re still (again) confusing a scientific theory with the layperson’s use of the word “theory”, when they are not the same. The layperson’s use of “theory” is similar to science’s “hypothesis”.

          I’ve taken part in this discussion, or seen it occur, countless times over decades, and 90+% of the time it is started by people who want to discount Evolution because it’s “only a theory”.

          The theory of gravity would not be disproven by peer review, nor would it be entirely invalidated because if one of its hypotheses were somehow suddenly disproven. The theory of gravity would still remain, as it describes a factual phenomenon. The same is true of Evolution.

          • David Morris

            Storm, just read what you wrote… Your position is one of faith and belief. Science ALWAYS questions and that is the core function of peer review.

            What is a Fact?

            A fact is any phenomenon or action that is verified. In other words, what you can verify or prove is called a fact.

            What is a Theory?

            A theory is offering an explanation of what has been observed or verified. It so happens in Science that certain verified actions or happenings need explanations to make the world understand these universal happenings. These explanations are what are called theories. Many great scientists and thinkers forwarded theories to explain their observations. Some of these scientists and thinkers include Isaac Newton, Archimedes, Noire, Albert Einstein and others.

            Theories can be disproved because of their ambiguity since they are mere explanations based on facts. We wonder what makes a theory a challengeable one and a law an undisputed one. A theory cannot be disproved because of the reason that it is the result arrived at by an explanation of a fact that is universal.

          • David Morris

            Scientists theorized that man could not travel faster than 60 MPH or we would risk having the air sucked out of our lungs. Scientists theorized that the sun revolved around the earth. Scientists theorized that the earth was flat.

            There are thousands and thousands of theories… and objective review by the scientific community… peer review happens… sometimes over decades. That is a fact.

            On this specific topic of climate change… there are very few FACTS. There is no objective analysis documenting the impact of man in comparison to naturally occurring events like volcanoes, changes in the earth’s orbit, or the solar cycles that happen over 30, 50, and 130 years. Without this open discuss, climate change THEORIES will never be considered fact.

          • SentientStorm

            No, my position is not one of faith and belief, but rather of science. My view is only involves faith, because I’m certain I know the valid definition of theory. It helps that I am a professional geologist and geophysicist..

            Of course Science must always question, but science does not wake up each morning and question what it proved true the day before, otherwise it would make no progress.

            Again, a THEORY is not merely an “explanation”, but rather often a series of tested hypotheses,

            You claim that the “verified actions or happenings” that need explanations, that these explanations are theories. No, not unless the explanations have been subjected to falsification testing, and validated, otherwise those explanations would only be Hypotheses, not Theories.

            Neither Newton, Archimedes, Noire, nor Einstein ever promoted a hypothesis as a theory.

            Theoretically theories can be disproven, but realistically not in their entirety, or else they were not legitimately validated by previous testing. While their may be some aspect of a complex theory that is tested and fails, that would more accurately be a hypothesis involved in that theory, and it be very unlikely to invalidate the entirety of that theory itself.

            For instance, some creationists believe they have evidence that man and dinosaur lived at the same time, and believe that this disproves Evolution. Assuming this were true, it would not actually invalidate the fact of Evolution, only cause aspects of the theory to be modified.

          • David Morris

            You just do not get it. A hypothesis is the basis or starting point from which a theory may… or may not evolve.

            So, if you feel you understand and know the term theory. State a source supporting your position. Meriam Webster states it as follows…

            : an idea or set of ideas that is intended to explain facts or events

            : an idea that is suggested or presented as possibly true but that is not known or proven to be true

            : the general principles or ideas that relate to a particular subject

            In each case they are IDEAS attempting to explain an event…

            So, state your position … explicitly and provide a source validating your position.

          • David Morris

            Oh… by the way Darwin’s THEORY of evolution is still a THEORY…

            Think about that for a moment while you reread the definition of the word.

          • David Morris

            By the by… this thread started out discussing the legal actions of California in relation to climate change theory…

            You seem to “believe” it is fact. So, provide a link to the theory that you support as fact. You will find that there is a lot of fluff out there but very little documentation.

          • David Morris
          • David Morris
          • SentientStorm

            I’ve got some 30 years doing scientific work showing that I do “get it”.

            The definition that you’re providing is the layperson’s use of the word “theory” and not the scientific use of that word.

            Here is a good (but not great) definition of Theory as used in science:

            THEORY: In science, a well-substantiated explanation of some aspect of the natural world that can incorporate facts, laws, inferences, and tested hypotheses.

            https://ncse.com/library-resource/definitions-fact-theory-law-scientific-work

          • David Morris

            Scientific Theory
            A scientific theory summarizes a hypothesis or group of hypotheses that have been supported with repeated testing. A theory is valid as long as there is no evidence to dispute it. Therefore, theories can be disproven. Basically, if evidence accumulates to support a hypothesis, then the hypothesis can become accepted as a good explanation of a phenomenon. One definition of a theory is to say it’s an accepted hypothesis.

    Some organizations are listed: Pacific Legal Foundation, Americans for Prosperity, California Republican Party,
    But a group of very important organizations is missing from the list. Third World help organizations. There’s a lot of organizations that claim, living conditions around the world are not like here, rather most of the world is a so-called Third World hellhole and we live in paradise-like conditions compared to them because we are the Industrial Countries. The USA, Canada, many countries of Europe and some countries in the rest of the world are supposed to be the “leading Industrial Nations”, and there’s supposed to be a huge North-South gap.
    Such belief automatically and unavoidably means that the Industry we have here in the Industrial countries.is good and indispensable. This assumption is diametrically opposed to every environmental teaching including Global Warming, If you want to claim there’s man-made catastrophic global warming – earth is good, nature is good and mankind is destroying it – and you want to be consistent, then you have to first reject the idea of a Third World entirely and claim living conditions are all the same all around the world, have always been.
    So members of any Third World aid organization (and of any organization that claims we have to let Mexicans or Central Americans in, for here it is better than there, they suffer something there) have to be jailed for indirect climate change denial.

    GOOD ALERT on this topic of ‘climate change’ and loss of already diminishing speech brought to us by ‘political correctness’…aka tyranny. The whole problem that first planted the ‘seed’ of CO2 ’caused by man’ was MEDIA jumping on board with GORE…without ever questioning to define a phrase that was never initially explained past ‘greenhouse gases’.
    These people and their minions shoved this down our throats 24/7/365 for decades without anyone questioning ‘science’ until
    ‘climate gate’ erupted and UNITED NATIONS’S own IPCC admitted the false statements arising from propaganda concerning CO2….BUT …HAVE YOU READ THAT? Most
    comments here are hung up on ‘free speech’ rather than confronting the real ‘lies’ of ‘climate change’ and the ramifications thereof. Anyone for truth? anyone?
    GEOENGINEERING IS A ‘MANMADE’ operation aka
    ‘geoengineering climate change’. The only reason people cannot fathom the extent of these programs, is their lack of
    knowledge in science, military operations and ‘weather weapons’ used for warfare. [Most Viet Nam Veterans remember ‘Agent Orange’ sprayed over rice paddies to kill off their food supplies, and AO was the only chemical that worked. It also put all humans at risk for generations thereafter producing disabled offspring] This was the first well known incident admitted to by Government, but many more experiments were conducted before this and never stopped being used on US ever since up to present time.
    Don’t believe it? Do yourselves a favor and do your own research ie; ‘geoengineeringwatch.org’ or ‘weather modification, or ‘scorched earth’,
    or USAF OWNING THE WEATHER BY 2025….weather warfare used as a ‘force multiplier’…in military-speak.
    The truth is obvious for those able to see.

    The democrats (and the few republicans) in California are too stupid and un-observant to see that a covert weather manipulation is in play now while Wall St. hedge funds make billions in profits from insider trading on weather derivatives. The people controlling the weather are working with intermediaries that work with the big banks (Chase, Citi, and many others). The two components of this covert operation are: a) the aerosol chemtrail spraying operation and, b) Satellite based and ground-based microwave RF transmitters which create ‘on-demand’ high pressure to steer, block or re-direct low pressure weather systems away from the Southwest. The chemtrail spraying operation has been in operation since the early 1990s in the Southwest United States. It is the specific timing of the chemical aerosol spraying operation that is key to understanding the intent of their activity. The spraying operation commences when a moisture field is moving into California and the West coast. The chemtrail spraying is dine all over the country and in many other countries.

    i can see the United States is dividing like the elite wants, they want to start a war among the people, at least Trump is president so if it happen he will just try to stop it, if hillary was in power, she would slaughter everybody to stop the war, look at some of the laws that obama past, one is the president has the right to have any american killed for any reason at any time, even peaceful time. Remember georgia guide stones that the elite put up, 500,000,000 million by 2030, that means 7 billion people must die if they plan on reaching their goal, if you want to stop something, stop the riots, we all get along, i have not seen anything that Trump has done that is as worst that hillary and obama has done to this country. You rioters are doing exactly what they want, if you want to live we need to all get along so we don’t give the elite’s this sick entertainment of everybody fighting. The elite are very sick people, read up on their history, but yet we should never trust anybody from either side, they are all sick in the head. They have no value on life,except their own.
