“Since 2009, the US and other governments have undertaken actions with respect to global climate that are not scientifically justified and that already have, and will continue to cause serious social and economic harm — with no environmental benefits,” said Mr. Lindzen, a prominent atmospheric physicist.

Even though the seating of Neil Gorsuch will not change the ideological balance of the court from what it was when Antonin Scalia was there, the Democrats are clearly prepared to go to the wall and gum up the works as much as possible in order to prove to their base how “tough” they are. This is the new normal, so we might as well just invoke the nuclear option now and be done with it.

SEALS killing terrorists. Well done. I liked it. Truth to tell a lot of this kind of stuff is on the market now. Some good and some not so good. This was one of the better ones. I like Dixon's writing and I'll read the rest of the series in time. No hurry though.
Are the stories amazing? Yes, they are. Do they teach you things about yourself? Do they illustrate great truths of human nature? Do they stir the soul to great deeds? Of course they do. But in this sad, debauched age, where men’s spirits hang low, and honor is thin, you must read the classic works for another reason. It’s mundane, and boring, but critical. You must know whether you are being lied to.There's lots more to it and I'm only just dipping in.

It's takes place in one of these worlds where the supernatural and mundane exist side by side with the mundane mostly ignorant of the supernatural. It falls smack dab in the middle of the fantasy genre that Corriea and Butcher do so well. It is the first n a series. Small town overrun by demons and a mysterious stranger arrives to clean 'em out. The story is OK, but nothing new here. The characters are much the same. The presentation is above average. So, I liked it. I'll definitely pick up the sequel, but I got other things to read so it may be awhile.

I’m reminded of the scene in ‘Patton’ where he is standing on the hill overlooking the battlefield and shouts, “Rommel, you bloody bastard, I read your book!”. Alinskyites, take note.H/T to John
