Link to my snapshot of John Rooks' tropopause post, taken when my comment was listed as awaiting comment moderation (viewable only to me), 2/4/09. Rooks did not approve my comment, which was entirely factual, with documentation, and refrained from all editorializing about Rooks failure to note the obvious conflicts between the tropopause study he was citing and well-known scientific results. My comment:

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.

    It is well known that global warming is predicted to SHRINK the desert belt, not expand it. A warmer earth is a moister earth, as more water evaporates into the atmosphere, and this is what has been seen historically. North Africa was lush during the medieval warm period, and the Sahara shrank “spectacularly” during the 1980’s and 90’s. Even the GCM’s of AGW alarmists predict shrinking deserts.

    California is experiencing drought, not because of warming, but because of cooling. The Pacific Decadal Oscillation recently turned definitively to its cold “La Nina” phase, , which always brings drought, just as "El Ninos" are famous for bringing a lot of rain. With the earth cooling for ten years now, desertification does indeed present a grave concern, but it won't be caused by warming or CO2.


Copy of Park Service website,

with admission that the Circle of Embrace is still a broken circle

Google cache of the same page, from 3/17/2009

Copy of PJ Country post, where Mountain Goat comments on calling the Park Service about the 44 blocks. I also put in a link to Mountain Goat's comment itself:

Mountain Goat reports:

The gentleman did add, that the translucent blocks are actually white marble, and that the one with Sept. 11 inscribed on it will be one block, although it will be roughly the length three of the other blocks would have been.

As of 7-09, PJ Country is defunct, but I found a copy of the post with comments on the Wayback Machine.


Some discussion and frame grabs of the BART that I was having trouble emailing

Email exchange with Larry Johnson about my "Pentagon lied" post (regarding the rescue of Captain Philips of the Maersk Alabama)




Disappeared news story about Obama saying to Oregon voters on May 19, 2008:

"We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that other countries are going to say OK," Obama said.

"That's not leadership. That's not going to happen," he added.

Google "We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want" and you'll find that no major press outlets still link this story. There are just a bunch of quotes from blogs. The only mainstream report is a Google cache of an AFP story, so I decided to post my own copy here.

Mark Steyn doesn't give a source, but he has the full quote as:

“We can’t just keep driving our SUVs, eating whatever we want, keeping our homes at 72 degrees at all times regardless of whether we live in the tundra or the desert and keep consuming 25 percent of the world’s resources with just 4 percent of the world’s population, and expect the rest of the world to say you just go ahead, we’ll be fine.”



AP news story about Ahmadinijad's stolen 2009 election, falsely claiming that Obama said:

"it's up to Iran to determine its own leaders but that the country must respect voters' choice."

Obama never said the crucial second half of that sentence. He said their VOICES should be respected, not their votes. His comments were a call to allow peaceful protests and freedom of speech. He never said anything about the need for elections to be honest, nor made any statements demanding that the election result be honest.

I was misled by the AP story into thinking he had, until the next day I got suspicious about the use of paraphrase for such a key statement. (Obama's actual remarks here.)

What I saw is Yahoo's posting of the AP story, which will not remain up for long, so I am keeping a copy here. This was AP's initial and most widely reported commentary on Obama's speech, but is no longer available except at Fox and as a raw AP feed from the San Francisco Chronicle. As AP often does after misleading the nation with their actual report, they write over it with a later news feed that cleans up some of their disinformation, in effect covering their tracks.

Updated story (via Tri-City Herald) here. My copy (via Yahoo's AP feed) here. The updated story is bad in its own ways, claiming without evidence, for instance, that: "The new American president is personally hugely popular in Iran," but it does not contain the errant assertion that Obama said anything about respecting Voters' choice.

To find what the vast majority of readers actually saw, you have to happen across one of the few news outlets that host AP stories on their own servers instead of linking to AP's updated story. Very few outlets do this. This could be because they have the misguided idea that it is better to show updated stories (without accounting how this allows AP to cover their tracks instead of issuing corrections), or AP might charge less for linking instead of hosting (given their own obvious incentive to maintain this control over their product). Anybody know is this is a pricing thing? (Email me here.)


3.  PDF of anti-Obama Wrong Way poster. Modeled on Patriot Depot’s “Wrong Way” bumper stickers, but using the actual template for a wrong way sign. For mine, I set “page scaling” in the print window to “tile all pages” and “tile scale” to 200%. That gave me a print out on six letter-size sheets, fitting standard 22”x28” poster-board. Just trim the overlaps and apply stick-glue.

For added rigidity, make two and staple one poster to each side of a stick, then staple the edges of the two sides together, working your way in towards the stick. Will tension the sign so that it can stand up to a mild wind without bending.


4.  Extracted audio from Cash for Clunkers execution video. Just the end, where the car jerks to the end of the Obama-hangman's rope.


5.  Copies of Indonesian articles about BHO (nee Barry Seotoro):

a.  "Mengaji" article that Time Magazine claimed was mistranslated by American Expat (Larry Martin). Original. My copy.

I don't know Indonesian, but Google's machine translation supports Martin. His translation included an innocuous sentence (having nothing to do with Obama) about non-Muslim children having to wear Muslim dress on Fridays:

"Each Friday, all the school childen [sic] must wear Muslim clothes and that also includes children who are non-muslim [sic]."

Time claims that the original article contained no such sentence. Martin says yes it does:

Oh, but that line does appear in the original news report and here it is in the complete context. The following line below is from the original Indonesian news report used as a source. Kaltim Post - 27 January 2007 [link no longer functional, but the Indonesian is the same as in the copies linked above]:

"Itu sekolah Islam? Bukan, itu sekolah umum berstatus negeri sejak 1970. Tiap Jumat, anak sekolah mengenakan pakaian Muslimah, termasuk yang beragama non-Muslim."

Google translates this as:

Each Friday, children dressed in Muslim schools, including non-Muslim children.

The machine translation is obviously quite rough, but it is accurate enough to tell that Martin is telling the truth while Time either lied or was recklessly negligent, perhaps enough so to constitute malice, and hence libel under existing law. Did they do any translation at all before making claiming the non-existence of a line that quite obviously is there? Martin should file suit just for the discovery.

The article also contains an important quote about Obama, where Obama's regular teacher (Teni) talks about Obama's religion teacher and his religion classes (as translated by Google):

According to Teni the teacher, Barry Islamic religious lessons during school. The teacher, named Maimunah lived in the area Puncak, Cianjur Regency. "I remember he once studied the Koran said Teni."

Interestingly, Time Magazine's hit piece on Martin claims:

Although Lolo Seotoro, Obama's stepfather, was nominally a Muslim, Obama (then known as Barry Soetoro), studied Catholic catechism at the school.

This bald lie supports the charge of malice. Time KNEW it was putting out disinformation.


b.  Article subtitled (in translation): "The chubby Negro child was a diligent mosque visitor."   Contains Rony Amir quote that Obama was "previously quite religious in Islam."

The original no longer seems to be available, but Obama WTF has a copy of the original with a translation. My copy here.


6.  Email exchange with Missile Defense Agency spokesman Richard Lehner.


7. Fake racist "Tea Party Comix"

My copy of author Tom Kalb's eBay auction page for first three issues. Original eBay page here.

My copy of Kalb's eBay store page. Original eBay page here.

My copy of Ethan Persoff's first Tea Party Comix post (scroll down 2/3rds). Original here.

My copy of Persoff's first update. Original here.

My copy of Persoff's second update. Original here.


8.  Copy of Tapper Post declaring it to be a fact that Obama IS a Christian, with my comment on the subject (at bottom). Original here.


9. Copy of Raila Odinga for President web page, 

giving Odinga's explanation for the MOU with Muslim leaders, in which he declares Islam to be the only true religion and promises to impose Sharia law on Kenya if elected

Original URL: http://raila2007.org/1109.html?*session*id*key*=*session*id*val*. Wayback does not have a copy of this page, but they do have a copy of the now defunct raila2007 main page, which has the "MoU with Muslims" page linked on the left side (visible by hovering over link): http://web.archive.org/web/20080117081906/http://raila2007.org/

I also posted an English language interview Odinga did with Michael Oyier of Kenya Television Network on 11-15-2007, trying to explain away his signing of the MoU. For more on Obama's close relationship with Odinga, Jerome Corsi traveled to Kenya to talk to the principles and collect documentary evidence. His interview the Sean Hannity is here.

10.  Sunstein-Obama Silly Love Song

11.   Jeremiah Wright identified as a "former Muslim" by TNR senior editor Ryan Lizza in 2007 article titled: "The Agitator." This article is quoted in several places but the full article seems to have disappeared from everywhere but Wayback  so I made a copy.

12.    The pictures of Obama wearing the Sunni Muslim garb of a Somali elder, released by Hillary Clinton during the 2008 presidential campaign, were originally published in the Ethiopia section of the African news magazine Geeska Afrika Magazine and Han. That article is no longer available at the original Geeska Aafrika Online url, but the Wayback Machine still has it. My copy here.

Climate stuff

Email sent by me February 18 2011 to a dozen scientists (mostly solar scientists) who dismiss a solar explanation for late 20th century warming on the grounds that solar activity was not increasing in the late 20th century. I asked if they were implicitly assuming that ocean temperatures had equilibrated to the 20th century's high level of solar activity by, say, 1980 (before late 20th century warming commenced).

Response from Mike Lockwood, Professor of Space Environment Physics at the University of Reading. My commentary here.

Copy of Roy Spencer's old "Global Warming 101" web page: "Global Warming and Nature's Thermostat" I don't know if he meant to take it down or if it just got lost in the shuffle when he redesigned his web page, but I always thought it was important, so am archiving a copy here.

Hans Jelbring very kindly gave me permission to post a copy of his 2003 paper "The 'Greenhouse Effect' as a Function of Mass." The subject is beyond my actual understanding, but that doesn't stop me from making some naive remarks here.


Working pages to try to reconstruct my old rawls.org website from before I switched from Mac to Windows, some time around 2000?

Copy of old Rawls for Sheriff index page, dated 2000. I'm trying to make it operational at the bottom of my current rawls.org home page.
