Remember when they told us that "an ice age" was coming?



President Obama is in Paris to talk climate change.   He wants to prove to ISIS that they can't stop us from having a meeting and talking about climate change.

So what's going on with the world's climate?   I don't know but there is a lot of confusion.

The Wall Street Journal has a good analysis this morning about the temperatures.   

It also points out that many countries, like India and China, are talking but not playing ball.

Nothing will happen in Paris.   They may sign some vague agreement that will have zero impact.

In the meantime, we remind you that we were warned about an ice age back in 1970s.    
How did that prediction work out?

Macri is saying the right things in Argentina


We mentioned last week that Argentina has a new president. He is already sounding a lot different than the incumbent. President-elect Mauricio Macri of Argentina sent a message to Venezuela and Iran:
Only a day later, Mr. Macri moved quickly to strike a different tone from that of the departing president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, who — along with her late husband, Néstor Kirchner — had controlled the presidency for the last 12 years.
At a news conference on Monday, Mr. Macri emphasized how his administration would differ from that of Mrs. Kirchner on foreign policy. He announced an effort to get Venezuela — a close ally of Argentina under the Kirchners — suspended from the Mercosur regional trade bloc over claims of the infringement of civil liberties there.
And he made clear his desire to revoke an agreement struck under Mrs. Kirchner with Iran to jointly investigate the 1994 bombing here of a Jewish center, which killed 85 people. Some investigators have accused senior Iranian officials, including a former Iranian president, of planning and financing the attack, making the agreement to give Iran a direct role in the investigation a political lightning rod.
Mr. Macri has also announced plans to improve diplomatic ties with the United States, which became strained in recent years over Argentina’s international debts and Washington’s sway in the hemisphere.
“There is little doubt that Argentina’s relations with the U.S. under a Macri administration will become friendlier,” said Michael Shifter, president of the Inter-American Dialogue, a policy group in Washington.
Mr. Macri understands how the Kirchner regime has hurt Argentina, from a relationship with Iran to demonizing foreign investors to distract the people from the failures of crony capitalism.    
Let’s hope that president-elect Macri will also restart the investigation into the death (or murder) of Mr. Nisman, the prosecutor who was killed in his apartment the day before he was to appear in Congress.
It will take time, and patience, but Argentina has a chance to turn it around and become a vibrant economy and U.S. trade partner.   
Singing a different tune with Iran and Venezuela is the right “tango” for the moment!

Is Mexico going “Trump” on Cubanos?

(My new Babalu blog post)


Up here, Mr Trump wants to send illegal immigrants back home. The Mexican government has criticized such a campaign position.

I have said several times that massive deportation is an unrealistic option, in large part because it will get caught up in the courts and not send any one home.

Interestingly, the Mexican government is doing its own version of Trump’s idea.
They pick up “indocumentados cubanos” and send them back to Cuba, as we read in The Yucatan Times:
After providing first aid and verifying that they were in good health, the Navy transferred the rafters to the remote terminal of the Port of Progreso.
The Cubans were then sent to the Merida facilities of the National Institute of Migration.
Authorities have reported the arrival in Yucatan of more than 150 Cuban rafters in 2014 and so far in 2015, in what is considered the largest exodus from the island in the past decade.
Most are seeking to reach the United States, using Mexico as a stopover on their journey.
However, unlike the Cubans who have in past months arrived to Mexico, the six recent arrivals could never reach the United States due to the Mexico-Cuba repatriation agreement signed Nov. 7 in Merida by President Enrique Peña Nieto and Cuban President Raul Castro.
Due to the agreement, the six Cubans would be sent back to the island.
We understand that Mexico is a sovereign country and has the right to enforce immigration laws, such as keeping people without papers away from its territory.
Here is the question: Why do so many Mexican politicians criticize Mr Trump for proposing to do here what they do down there?
The bottom line is that Mexico is hypocritical about enforcing immigration laws.   Apparently, it’s OK for Mexico to deport Central Americans or Cubans in the name of sovereignty and the rule of law.   It’s not OK for the US to do the same thing.
The word is “hipocrita”!   Someone should ask President Pena-Nieto about it!

The 18-5 Dallas Stars will make you fall in love with hockey


Vancouver was in Dallas last night and it was another great hockey game to watch.   In fact, playing good hockey is turning into a habit for the young and very talented Dallas Stars.

This is Mike Heika:
Signs of the Stars' ability to handle the challenges of a normal NHL season were all over the ice Friday at American Airlines Center.
Dallas was battling a hard-charging Vancouver team with revenge on its mind.
Dallas was battling a brief puck-handling slump that had gripped several players and left them just a little below their best.
And Dallas was battling some tough officiating that put them short-handed seven times.
And yet, the Stars found a way to win. Led by Antti Niemi's 34 saves, Dallas took a 3-2 shootout win over the Canucks and pushed their record to 18-5-0 (36 points) - the best start in franchise history, exceeding the 35 points collected by the 1971-72 Minnesota North Stars.
It was a heck of a statement game for a team that has had plenty of them this season, and it was the fifth time this season this group has toughened up and refused to lose two games in a row. Dallas was coming off a 7-4 loss to Ottawa Tuesday in which they were guilty of several bad turnovers.

This team is fun to watch.     They will be a lot more fun when they start playing in the Stanley Cup playoffs!   The Stars are for real!

P.S.   You can hear our Friday sports show here:

How close is Putin to blowing up NATO?

The Turkey-Russia feud raises a few questions about the future of NATO. In other words, are NATO allies ready to defend Turkey?  Or are they expecting U.S. jets to do it?   
Based on what we saw in Iraq in the late 1990s (enforcing the no fly zone) and Kosovo in 1995, NATO will come down to U.S. and UK jets doing all of the flying.
My guess is that Putin knows this and will try to force NATO to act. He is now saying that the U.S. knew that Turkey would shoot down a Russian jet. On the other hand, Turkey is telling Russia not to play with fire.   
Who really knows? At the same time, it does not matter. The jet is down, a pilot is dead and Putin just got the opportunity to prick the NATO balloon.
Putin has been trying to downsize NATO for some time. I agree with Stephen Covington:
Russia’s leadership wants a Europe without strategic Alliances, without multi-national organizations and without a U.S.-Europe Transatlantic link that can through collective policies and action offset the national strengths Russia would hold over any one European nation. It would be a European security environment that would allow Russia to apply its national strengths to great effect without challenge and competition — enhancing its power abroad and at home.
How does Putin blow up NATO? He doesn’t. He simply watches NATO blow up itself. He forces NATO to work together, such as in defending Turkey under Article 5 or fighting ISIS.    
In the end, NATO won’t work together because of weak U.S. leadership and the reality that most countries have no real military resources to bring to the game. NATO is like a baseball team where only a couple of guys can play and the rest can’t do much more than watch from the dugout.
We will watch to see how this plays out. Nevertheless, Putin is a master tactician and he assumes that Obama is weak and the West is weaker. He is betting that he will win because the other side doesn’t want to fight. And he is right!

Dear Mr Jones: It's time for a new Dallas QB!


Like Danny White, the great QB between Staubach and Aikman, Tony Romo did not take Dallas to the Super Bowl.   Nevertheless, he's been a great QB and ranks way up there in statistics.   

Tony's work has been brilliant but he's been down too much and too often.

Yesterday, Romo got hurt again and that may be it for this season.   Dallas can not go not go into the next season with such a fragile QB.

So I hope that Mr Jones is looking for a new QB!

Even Dana is bummed out!

Turkey may have done what ISIS hasn’t in two years. In other words, Turkey’s decision to shoot down a Russian jet may very well drag the U.S. into a war.   
According to a paper from Stratfor, the situation could get ugly very quickly because the U.S. may find itself in a spat between Moscow and Ankara.
After all, Turkey is a NATO ally. And we’re in if they call out Article 5, or the one that calls on members to defend another under attack.
President Obama will have to respond somehow if Putin fights back. Wonder how many Democrats will support joining a NATO operation? 
Again, we are seeing the consequences of U.S. weakness, from the vacuum left in Iraq, not enforcing lines in Syria to allowing Russia back into the Middle East. It’s amazing how quickly the entire situation has collapsed without the U.S. leading the way.
We are also watching what happens when a U.S. president does not prepare the American people for events like these. How many times has President Obama addressed the nation about national security? I don’t remember but he has addressed climate change with regularity. He is even on his way to Paris for a climate change meeting. 
It’s enough to even drive a liberal Dana Milbank to write: 
Then came President Oh-bummer.
“Syria has broken down,” he said. “And it is going to be a difficult, long, methodical process to bring back together various factions within Syria to maintain a Syrian state.”
Maybe you can motivate people when you sound so discouraging. But it’s hard.
Dana O’ Bummer! Where was Dana when the media put Mr Obama on its shoulders and treated him like a Messiah?   
What a bummer indeed. It’s harder and harder for bummed out liberals to carry President Oh-bummer’s water!

2016 like 1896? A new book by Karl Rove



Love or hate him, Karl Rove was born to analyze politics.   You can see him on Fox News and he writes a weekly column at The Wall Street Journal.

His new book is "The triumph of William McKinley" is about the election of 1896.   Rove believes that our politics today resembles that of 1896.

Let's read the book!

A DINO can beat a bad Republican in Louisiana

The Louisiana election, in which John Bel Edwards beat David Vitter, does not say much about the state of politics in the South. It is an aberration but should teach the GOP an important lesson.
Governor elect Edwards is anti-abortion, a strong supporter of the 2nd Amendment and did not mention President Obama. He was vague and danced around liberal topics. I looked and could not find the word Democrat in his website. I saw some of his ads and never heard a word about Democrats. We are not even sure that he voted for President Obama!
He also ran against Washington and called his opponent part of the dysfunctional federal government.  
In fact, this is how he describes himself:    
Father, Public Servant, Veteran, Man of Religion, Small Businessman…. John Bel Edwards Will Put Louisiana Families and Louisiana Workers First…
The GOP candidate, Senator Vitter, had scandal problems and could not unite the GOP. He had a prostitution scandal and could not overcome that.  
In other words, any serious GOP candidate would have won the election!   
So what’s the lesson? A DINO, or Democrat in Name Only, has a very good chance of beating a bad GOP candidate, even in the red South.

Change in Argentina but it won’t be easy

Argentina made an important right turn on Sunday. Mauricio Macri, the opposition candidate, won Sunday’s election. He is not perfect but offers a more realistic option than the misguided populist policies of the incumbent party.    
At the same time, “argentinos” longing for change will have to be patient because Mr. Macri is inheriting a mess of huge proportions, as we read in Bloomberg:
“Neither candidate has addressed the elephant in the room: the reforms needed to reduce inflation, fix a fiscal deficit of 7.2 percent of gross domestic product – the largest in over 30 years – and lure back investment dollars which have stayed away due to currency controls, a lack of regulatory predictability and a decade-long dispute with holdouts from the 2001 default.”
Macri’s victory is also a huge defeat for “the Kirchner way”, the populist philosophy that guided Argentina for a decade. John Fundhas a good analysis about this point:
Argentina’s election on Sunday represented the starkest choice the country has faced since the uthoritarian era of Juan and Evita Peron began in the 1940s. 
The seven-point victory of center-right candidate Mauricio Macri may herald a real shift towards more sensible economics and less anti-U.S. policies in Latin America. 
Defeated Peronist candidate Daniel Scioli was a hand-picked defender of the interventionist economics of his party’s retiring President Christina Fernandez de Kirchner. 
In a recent TV interview, Scioli summed up the differences between him and Macri simply: “I defend the role of the state and he defends the role of the market.” He accused Macri, a leading businessman and mayor of Buenos Aires, of representing policies of “savage capitalism” that would devastate the poor. 
Argentina’s voters have often fallen for such rhetoric, but not this year. 
The record of Kirchner and her Peronist party was a disaster and not easily ignored.
It won’t be easy but Mr. Macri is a better option.  He has a better chance of attracting the kind of foreign investment that the country needs to create jobs and help the struggling middle class.  
Good luck to Sr. Macri.

A word about Macri and Argentina

We will have more on the Argentina election later.   However, let’s congratulate the people of Argentina for changing the direction of their country.
In the last few days of the campaign, Mr Scioli played the populist card by saying this:     “I defend the role of the state and he defends the role of the market.”
In the past, Argentina fell for that kind of populist rhetoric.   They didn’t in 2015 and that’s a good thing!
Good luck to Sr. Macri!

Why do we need a coalition to defend the US from ISIS?



Democrats are all about talking coalitions, even though I don’t recall any coalitions that President Clinton or President Obama put together. I mean real coalitions that put ground troops in the battle, as was the case with President GHW Bush in the Gulf War or President GW Bush in Iraq.
In a perfect world, it’d be nice if we could go to war with our allies.  Unfortunately, we don’t live in a perfect world. We live in a world where our allies have few military resources and can not really sustain any kind of long undertaking.  Let’s say that Canada and UK are the exceptions.
ISIS is a threat to the U.S. Yes, they are a threat to other places but we are target # 1. They want to bring their terror to U.S. cities and kill us.
Again, why do we need a coalition to defend the American people?  
We need a president who invites our allies to the fight and then goes forward with a coalition of the willing. The objective is to defeat ISIS, not to prove that you can put together a coalition.
And a we need a president who reminds us that we can beat ISIS if we really want to beat ISIS.  
I agree with Larry Kudlow:
We need determination. We need to be unflinching. We need to be focused on the goal of destroying ISIS.
We are at war. Our homeland is in danger. Yes, the moratorium on Syrian refugees must be in place. That’s easy. But what’s not easy is coming up with a coherent plan for destroying ISIS and telling America, “We can do this.” That is leadership.
It may not be exactly comparable to President Ronald Reagan’s often-repeated goal of defeating Soviet communism and his message that yes, “We can do it.” But now is the time for our leaders to say we can destroy ISIS.
I am not a military strategist. What I am trying to propose here is a message, with urgency, that is vital to the leadership equation. If the White House won’t do it, then other leaders must.
It’s a week after the horrific Paris terror attacks, but basically the U.S. has changed nothing. How can this be?
Why hasn’t the president called for an emergency meeting of NATO where we would join brave French President Francois Hollande on declaring war with ISIS? Why haven’t we done this? If the president won’t, then Congress should.
And why have we not called for an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council to get a war resolution through immediately?
And why hasn’t Congress already passed a new authorization for the use of military force?
Sadly, the Obama administration is  torn between action and putting together a coalition. He wants to bring other countries along so that the left-wing college professors and NY Times can say that he is not a cowboy like Bush.
Here are the problems:
1) Bush 41 and Bush 43 put together coalitions. Obama hasn’t, despite being presented to us in 2008 as a man who was born to bring people together; and more importantly,
2) The U.S. Constitution calls on the commander in chief to defend the country, with or without other countries.
So let’s get serious before ISIS brings their terror to the U.S.

Call 911 because ObamaCare is very ill


We’ve posted about the problems with Obama Care, from low enrollment to high deductibles to state exchanges in trouble and now talk of United Health pulling out.
This is a list of the headlines about Obama Care compiled by our friends at Power Line:
UnitedHealth’s threat to exit wasn’t the adverse headline for President Obama’s signature program. The folks at America Rising have compiled the following additional headlines:
Gallup: Ratings of U.S. Healthcare Quality No Better After ACA (If you look at the numbers, Americans actually think their health care has gotten worse).
The New York Times: In Many Obamacare Markets, Renewal Is Not an Option (In markets throughout the country, the plan in the most popular category that was least expensive this year will not be offered next year).
Washington Examiner: Health insurance stocks plummet on Obamacare fears
Miami Herald: Survey: Healthcare unaffordable for many even with insurance (healthcare costs are said to be unaffordable for 25 percent of privately insured working-age adults).
The Wall Street Journal: Rising Rates Pose Challenge to Health Law (higher premiums, fewer doctors, and skimpier coverage will be common in 2016).
The New York Times: Health Care Law Forces Businesses to Consider Growth’s Costs (Obamacare makes employers reluctant to expand beyond 49 employees)
Boston Globe: Critics say high deductibles make insurance ‘unaffordable’.
It looks like Obama Care is really sick.   In fact, it may not survive the Obama presidency.    In other words, the numbers don’t add up, as many of us predicted.

Change in Argentina but tough decisions coming after the vote


t looks like Argentina will make a right turn on Sunday.    The polls anticipate that Mauricio Macri, the opposition candidate, will win Sunday's election.

I would vote for Macri if I was a citizen of Argentina.   His view of the world is far more realistic than the misguided populist policies of the incumbent party.    


At the same time, "argentinos" longing for change will have to be patient because Mr. Macri is inheriting a mess of huge proportions, as we read in Bloomberg:
"Neither candidate has addressed the elephant in the room: the reforms needed to reduce inflation, fix a fiscal deficit of 7.2 percent of gross domestic product - the largest in over 30 years - and lure back investment dollars which have stayed away due to currency controls, a lack of regulatory predictability and a decade-long dispute with hold

outs from the 2001 default."

It won't be easy but Mr. Macri is a better option.  He has a better chance of attracting the kind of foreign investment that the country needs to create jobs and help the struggling middle class.

Campus unrest confirms that the left is out of control

For a few weeks,  I've watched this insane atmosphere at several universities.  

Of course, we are willing to hear legitimate grievances from students.    There is a way and a place to present complaints.   

However, I don't believe that most adults in the US want to watch brats acting like brats or mobs take over institutions of higher learning.

Furthermore, I know that many of us are tired of college administrators who will not stand up to bullies.

My friend Barry Casselman, The Prairie Editor and guest on our show, posted something very important today about this movement and the damage it is doing to itself:   
The current spectacle of campus upheaval in so many U.S.
colleges and universities is a dark omen for what has become
in recent years a “liberal” education. (Please notice that I do
not say “liberal arts” education.) Unfortunately, U.S. higher 
education on very many campuses, including virtually all of
those which have traditionally held the most prestige, has
become overwhelmingly politicized to the far left, a
consequence of the views and impositions of many
professors at these institutions.
Campus life began to change dramatically in the 1960s as
many students and professors joined a national antiwar
movement protesting our involvement in Viet Nam. This was
the time that I was attending both undergraduate and graduate
universities, one in the East and the other in the Midwest. (In
full disclosure, I participated in some of those protests.
After Viet Nam, campus life in most institutions of higher
learning “quieted down,” only to re-heat following the end of
the Cold War in the early 1990s when aggressive U.S.
radicalism and neo-Marxism, having no power base in the
then-defunct Soviet Union and the turning-to-state-capitalism
of China, went into political hibernation on American campuses.
During the administration of President George W. Bush, this
radical impetus was revived on campuses across the nation,
and was accompanied by the rise of “political correctness”
and various “hot button” issues such as global warming and
racism.
The attempt to intimidate college administrations by student
and professor protest, of course, is not new, but one might
think that college presidents today would have learned 
something from the past. The shameful spectacle of college
presidents now pandering to these protesters indicates that
they have not learned much from the past.
In the 1960s, the most expensive college education (at an Ivy
League university, for example) was about $2500 per year. Today,
that price tag is approaching $70,000 per year! By paralyzing
campuses, destroying a true “liberal education,” and wrecking
the value of higher education in the work place, the current
upheaval, it would seem, is sowing the seeds of its own
destruction. How many parents, regardless of their own views,
are willing to shell out between $10,000 and $70,000 per year
per student for a degree that will have reduced or little value?
Colleges and universities will survive, but the current sad
spectacle will likely only hasten the demise of traditional campus
life. For the first time in history, there is a credible alternative,
and that is quality online higher education.
In their quest to destruct American higher education, the radical
students and professors only hasten the exhaustion of their own
unstable and self-annihilating movement.

The bad news is that we are watching college and university administrators acting like cowards.   The good news is that the country is taking a close look at our dysfunctional colleges and universities.    

The left will lose this temper tantrum and regret the day that the whole country saw what is really going on in many of these classrooms.

Let me bring back a popular phrase from the left:   "The whole world is watching".

Yes, the whole world is watching and the people paying the taxes, and tuition, are not liking what they see.
