Battle Lost: Mob Turns Against Chaotically Intermittent & Heavily Subsidised Wind & Solar

STOP THESE THINGS

‘Green’ dreams completely gutted.

Seems like only yesterday when you were hard pressed to find anything in print criticising wind and solar, save for sites like this one. Nowadays, there’s a veritable smorgasbord. Quite a few mainstream journalists are waking up to the greatest economic and environmental fraud of all time. STT has been joined by dozens of other blogs around the globe, all making concerted efforts to destroy the subsidy-soaked wind and solar scam. Even hard-core green loons like Dr Bob Brown (former head of the Australian Greens) have turned on wind power, with a vengeance.

Michael Shellenberger, whose erudite work has graced these pages many times, had his road-to-Damascus-moment some years ago. Michael, once rated as America’s top green, initially went along with the ‘wind and solar will save us’ meme. But, having applied a little logic and common sense, came to the inevitable conclusion that wind…

Hayley J. Hooper: Keeping the Lights On: Contrasting Miller v Prime Minister and Cherry v The Advocate General

UK Constitutional Law Association

If the phrase “may you live in interesting times” actually has its roots in a curse, then, we constitutional lawyers are indeed cursed. The specific nature of the curse is the malleable nature of constitutional controls designed to protect our institutions from the whims of executive action. At the time of writing, Britain is set to leave the European Union without a deal as to future relations on 31 October 2019. Documents from Operation Yellowhammer set out the possible real-world consequences of this. In a meeting of 28 August 2019, the Privy Council issued an Order in Council proroguing Parliament between the dates of Monday 9 September to Monday 14 October 2019. According to a Commons Library Briefing Paper prorogation has not lasted more than fourteen days since the 1980s.

Courts in England and Wales have taken radically different approaches to the lawfulness of the Government’s decision to prorogue…

Conquest’s Three Laws of Politics

Truth and Tolerance

Historian Robert Conquest is said to have proposed three laws of politics:

  1. Everyone is conservative about what he knows best.
  2. Any organization not explicitly and constitutionally right-wing will sooner or later become left-wing.
  3. The behavior of any bureaucratic organization can best be understood by assuming that it is controlled by a secret cabal of its enemies.

I can’t think of any counter examples to 2 and 3, can you?

Response to Contrapoints on Autogynephilia

Survey Anon's Gender Blog

Some time ago, Contrapoints made a video on autogynephilia. I’d watched it before without finding it convincing, but I finally decided to write down some notes while watching it, so now I can do a fuller response to it. I’m not going to include everything I observed with my notes, so you might want to read those too if you want a full idea of what I thought of the video.

Contrapoints misrepresents autogynephilia theory

In the beginning of the video at 2:50, Contrapoints contrasts Blanchard’s typology with the idea that trans women transition because of gender dysphoria. However, Blanchard’s typology does not assert that most trans women’s transitions are driven by pure lust, but instead that autogynephilia in some sense contributes to the development of gender dysphoria, which then usually is a main motivator for transition.

This issue comes up quite a lot of times. At
