I'll take Soros sites over the Koch Bros funded sites any day. Soros has done far more spreading democracy around the world. Can't say the same for the Koch Bros.


They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

I'd rather have NO left-wing or right-wing billionaires getting into politics.

Hmm, interesting on Soros, per Canada Free Press; Chuck Lehmann, May 02, 2014 -
He states in his article that Soros confessed to being a nazi collaborator in his native
Hungary. Soros also admitted to being an atheist and socialist.

Is this true?

Fake news.

Was George Soros a Nazi Collaborator

Wow, indeed. As hoaxes go, this one was neither plausible nor hard to disprove. Given that Soros — born in 1930 — was only nine years old when World War II began and 14 when the war ended in Europe in 1945, he couldn’t have joined the SS, whose minimum age requirement was 17, even if he had wanted to. Moreover, Soros would never have met the SS requirement for pure “Aryan” heritage. Quite to the contrary, Soros grew to adolescence as a persecuted Jew in Nazi-occupied Budapest.

#Sad!

Hmm, nothing was said about him joining the SS, just a nazi collaborator at some point, could be
near the end or after the war? What about him admitting to be a atheist and socialist?

What about it? I don't view one having those beliefs as negatives.

A Jewish kid living in a country occupied by Nazi's, I guess it's possible that he collaborated but I hope nobody's holding me accountable for whatever I might have done when I was 14. As an adult, a Jewish Nazi makes as much sense as a black Grand Dragon - or a leftist/Progressive Nazi.

And, yeah, I don't see him being atheist or socialist as negatives, either. There are a whole lot of very well respected people who are either or both.

165 degrees in an Iranian city today - per Washington Post article.

Not likely, since the hottest temperature ever recorded was 134 degrees (in Death Valley).

SMH. So it's impossible for it to ever get hotter anywhere else? :eh?:

I can't check it because after so many clicks to their page they block it to non-subscribers, but you can look at WaPo FB page for the article.

I have a friend in India that says last summer it got to 130's there.

I think that 165 is a satellite reading, which would make it ground temperature. Still mighty hot. It feels like Rancho Publico is close to that today. Sheesh!

If true, then since we've supposedly heated the earth by about a few degrees, what would the temperature be today in that city had the industrial revolution and fossil fuel use had never occurred? About 162 degrees?...

ShiftyMutt, that was heat index. The actual heat temperature was 115 degrees in that city.

And would it have been 112 degrees (give or take a degree) had we never had the industrial revolution / fossil fuels?

I see your understanding of math is about as bad as your understanding of science. Averages don't work that way.

Can you imagine the "feels like" temperature at 115 degrees adding horrible humidity? AZ doesn't come close. Index kinda means something when you add the humidity.

Index does mean something but it's not temperature like you incorrectly reported. And looking back, if it WAS 165 degrees, I think that would be the number one news topic throughout the world and not because global warming is du jour, but because it would have smashed the previous record. (Also, you probably should have known better that 165 degrees was off the charts wrong).

I wouldn't be surprised if at that temperature, they'd have major problems that would also be newsworthy. Spontaneous combustion seems like a possibility (I don't know what temperature is conducive to spontaneous combustion so my hunch could be wrong...).

You made the classic move (or suggestion) that many journalists, MSM sources, and people do when it's hot: "see, global warming" and "climate change". When its cold, these same people say either: "weather" or "polar vortexian" climate change. I get it. Our side does the same thing with cold spells, (but obviously not with hot spells). :D
