If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

ClimateGate--Winning the Propaganda Battle

Are the "deniers" finally winning the ClimateGate battles? Brian Micklethwait of samizdata.com thinks so:
...the old-school media are definitely, albeit belatedly and with much embarrassment and confusion, starting to notice all this. You can feel that most crucial of propaganda processes happening with Climategate: the reversing of the burden of proof. Unfair to all the fraud detectives (Watts, McIntyre, and the rest of them, including Monkton himself) though it undoubtedly was, those noble toilers, until the Climategate revelations erupted, had to prove everything, in defiance of the default position. Their every tiny blemish was jumped upon. Their major claims were ignored. Now the default position is slowly mutating into: It's all made-up nonsense. And the burden of proof is shifting onto the shoulders of all those who want to go on believing in such ever more discredited alarmism. In short, our side is winning this argument, big time.
That can only mean that despite nearly 20 years of propaganda, the "warmists" are apparently losing the debate, both in the realm of public opinion as well as in the media where the MSM has belatedly begun to report on ClimateGate. Already in this country, a majority doesn't believe that there is a problem now...I suspect that this is the direction world wide as well...especially with reports that in Copenhagen, confusion and chaos is running rampant, both inside as well as outside the conference.

Lord Monckton has done a yeoman's job in not just denouncing, but in actively refuting the "settled science" at the heart of the global warming fraud. Follow the link for an excellent video where you names-names, etc. on the criminals who are behind it all.
