Obama “very interested” in raising taxes via executive order. That’s according to his official spokesman, Josh (Not) Earnest.

Shadow of a blue dress. Too funny. The artist who painted Bill Clinton’s official portrait for the National Portrait Gallery hung a blue dress so that it would cast a shadow on the fireplace mantle, explaining it’s “a bit of a metaphor in that it represents a shadow on the office he held,” and pointing out that the 42nd president is “probably the most famous liar of all time.” Ouch.

Polar bears doing just fine. “It really is time for the doom and gloom about polar bears to stop,” says Dr. Susan Crockford, of the University of Victoria in British Columbia. Except, golly, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s determination that polar bears are threatened by climate change is the sole basis for all of Obama’s schemes to limit carbon in the U.S. economy so… we predict the doom and gloom about polar bears will continue.

The Daily Beast retracts story on Scott Walker. Remember what the MSM did to Sarah Palin? Constant front page gotcha headlines, followed later by quiet retractions when facts proved Palin correct? Yeah, well, it’s not like the American public has gotten smarter since 2008.

Richard Dawkins wants government to “protect” children from religion. “Children do need to be protected so that they can have a proper education and not be indoctrinated in whatever religion their parents happen to have been brought up in,” said the famous atheist. So what about protecting children from parents who are atheists?

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton links NYPD with slavery.

“Many of the worst parts of black history would have been impossible without police, too… Slavery, our country’s original sin, sat on a foundation codified by laws enforced by police, by slave-catchers.

Hey, it’s Black History Month—this is when liberals celebrate 28 days of ritual self-flagellation.

Who scored higher on climate science quiz, skeptics or alarmists? Not surprisingly, turns out your average skeptic knows more science than your average AGW believer. (In their defense, Al Gore may have skewed the alarmist average downward.)

John McCain says he’s ashamed:

“I’m ashamed of my country, I’m ashamed of my president, and I’m ashamed of myself…”

Brigitte Bardot on trial again for hate speech against Muslims. This is the fifth prosecution against her. What did she say this time?

I am fed up with being under the thumb of this population which is destroying us, destroying our country.

In France, that’s called “inciting racial hatred.”

Six hour test of new Nevada solar plant torches 130 birds. And they were only using one third of the mirrors:

The test started at 9:00 a.m. on January 14… By 10:30, biologists working on the site began noticing what have become known as “streamers,” trails of smoke and water vapor caused by birds entering the field of concentrated solar energy… and igniting.
