    It occured to me yesterday, as I watched a delayed press briefing by the Destroyer in Chief, that something was definitely not right about the response and the presentation of same. 

    They already knew that one of the ballistic missles fired by Iran had taken out the commercial airliner that crashed in Tehran.

    This morning…I'm certain. It explains a lot. Wait until the truth is widely exposed…the finger pointing begins soon.

    • Actually, I think this morning's brief is that the airliner was taken out by an air defense system missile. That makes a lot more sense than an accidental hit by a ballistic missile – and would be a definite "oops" on the part of Iran's defense forces.

        I think the Ukranian investigators have found fragments of a Russian Tor M-1 missle in the suburbs SW of Tehran near the crash site, and there is also a video of the crash that shows a large explosion within the plane seconds before the crash.  No distress calls prior to the crash. Not mechanical failure.

    Inquiring minds want to know…how's your 409K doing?

      She's real fine my 409
      She's real fine my 409
      My 409

      Well I saved my pennies and I saved my dimes
      (Giddy up giddy up 409)
      For I knew there would be a time
      (Giddy up giddy up 409)
      When I would buy a brand new 409
      (409, 409)
      Giddy up giddy up giddy up 409…

      Nothing can catch her
      Nothing can touch my 409
      409 ….

      When I take her to the track she really shines
      (Giddy up giddy up 409)
      She always turns in the fastest times
      (Giddy up giddy up 409)
      My four speed dual quad posi-traction 409
      (409, 409, 409, 409)

    Poor Pear. He just can't stop believing all the anti-climate hysteria being put out by What's Up. I particularly "loved" the January 6 article from Jay Lehr and Tom Harris that nothing is really happening with climate change.

    Then I noticed that both Lehr and Harris are still affiliated with the Heartland Institute in the Midwest, a notorious climate change denier. And as I recalled from reading Mr. Harris before, he is a mechanical engineer, not a climatologist.

    Even if the global warming story turns out to be not fully accurate, at least in terms of human involvement, Pear should know that the prudent conservative always takes steps.

    Here's a web site that is far more authoritative:
