Poll shows “normal people are more sceptical of authority than today’s journalists”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I went over a new Pew Research poll that shows most Americans aren't interested in "global warming," and don't really trust the scientists' motives for pushing the theory.

Aye, Edward. GK was a prophet for his and our times. But then again, aren’t they always.

You’re right on science. People talk about it as though it is absolutely objective. But as I always told my students, you have to define your terms and examine the presuppositions. Even scientists have presuppositions that they bring to the table.

Again a quote from brother Gilbert:
“Logic, then, is not necessarily an instrument for finding truth; on the contrary, truth is necessarily an instrument for using logic—for using it, that is, for the discovery of further truth and for the profit of humanity. Briefly, you can only find truth with logic if you have already found truth without it.

G. K. Chesterton (Daily News, Feb 25, 1905)

Two interesting headlines on the National Post site.
“How Ontario’s pursuit of renewable energy broke the provinces electricity system”
""Get these damn rates down" Sky-high Hydro One bills enraging consumers across Ontario"
Wynne’s career dissapation warning light must be flashing.
Maybe Ontar-iowe-ans are not in the mood to swallow a new carbon tax to help fight man made climate change.

Edit: I meant philosophical naturalism.

Al Peterson: I haven’t read allot of Chesterton but what little I have is awesome. He was from what I heard a delight to both fans and his debating opponents alike. I also followed the ongoing debate between the intelligent design advocates and evolutionists and was surprised (not really) to see those who claim they don’t want science to be hindered are actually the ones who are trying to prevent it. Science is and always has been about competing theories and new and emerging theories testing older ones. The kind of rhetoric that was employed by many within the scientific community was more about protecting their own naturalistic viewpoint than following the evidence where it leads.

Edward Jobin, the point of journalism as now taught is obviously not to find the facts but to create them. It gives them their much vaunted feeling of empowerment. My wife experienced this in her days studying to be a teacher. I still remember the quote from one of her profs in the margin of her notes: “Change society through the schools”. Well that has borne fruit and so has the same journalistic mantra.

You see it in the likes of Sean, Jay and others.
“Idolatry is committed, not merely by setting up false gods, but also by setting up false devils; by making men afraid of war or alcohol, or economic law, when they should be afraid of spiritual corruption and cowardice.” – G.K. Chesterton

The people of Ontario may be more trusting in government than their American neighbors but at the end of the day I think they will vote based on their wallets.

Ezra it amazes me that people are studying journalism and miss the most important point of it all. The joy of digging and finding new leads, new stories, new angles, sometimes to the contrary but still the willingness to get to the truth. Sadly our education system is taking advantage of peer pressure and only exposing them to one side of the argument so they can warp young impressionable minds into becoming the future propaganda droids of the liberal establishment whose only qualifications are their ability to read from the teleprompter.

On the topic of climate change, speaking at the White House ahead of a screening of his new documentary, Before the Flood, DiCaprio, in true fascist style, said such rejection indicated an inability to engage with the rational world.
“If you don’t believe in climate change, you don’t believe in facts, and science, and empirical truths,” he said. “and, in my humble opinion, [you] should not be allowed to hold public office.”

And the media party keeps firing its own staff – speaks to the management of these shit bag companies – to them, it’s better to lie to the masses with a liberal agenda (and lose money) than it is to run a company of journalists.

Makes you think how big the kickbacks are from the liberals to upper management of these media party companies.

And then there’s “MAMA-Media Party” – that’s right – the CBC – kicking back to other media party company execs in order to hold down a “single view point liberal narrative”.

If kick backs were made illegal and enforced with jail time for all parties involved, the liberals would be out of business tomorrow.

Beware – the day will come when climate deniers will be jailed – just part of the plan.

Trust no one in authority today.

Especially if they were raised with money behind them – they despise you.
