Person of the year.



Article here.

Choice very predictable, and yet... there must have been a temptation to help out the impeachment crowd and give it to Nancy Pelosi or "the whistleblower" or SchiNadPel.

I rate Time's Person Of The Year at about the the same level of importance as People Magazine's Sexiest Man Alive and Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue cover model. Are any of these things not about selling shit?

Qwinn said...

Sad thing is, once upon a time, Time was actually a solid magazine, and even had some very important right wing writers such as Whittaker Chambers working for them.

Which just made them an early target for the Left's Long March Through The Institutions. It's just a skinsuit now.

Don't be cynical. I applaud TIME for raising awareness of the exploitation of children.

If Trump hasn't been worthy of being "person" of the year since 2016, can the cable dunces stop talking about him 24/7?

The headline for the article is a lie. She is not the youngest person of the year. I, for one, was only 2.5 years old when I was a winner in 1966.

Should have been Eric Ciaramella on the cover with Deep State the person of the year (remember it doesn't have to be a good person - Hitler was man of the year back when Time was more sexist).

Back when TIME was a real magazine, Wolcott Gibbs did a wonderful parody of TIME's odd writing style: "Backward ran sentences until reeled the mind. Where it all will end, knows God."

William said...

I see a lot of cross-over potential. Nike can bring out a bio-degradable sneaker make from organic materials. Greta can talk about how when she walks the world in search of environmental justice, she wears Nike. Further down the road, when she marries Leo, I know someone who can design just the right dress for her wedding. Something minimal and mulchable and yet stylish.

Chuck said...

I don't much care about the child climate activist.

I am very glad that TIME did not pick "the whistleblower." Because the whistleblower's importance is something that the Trumpists, more than anyone, are blowing all out of proportion. The whistleblower isn't a critical witness. The critical witnesses are Trump, Mulvaney, Pompeo, Bolton, etc.

Making a hero out of the whistleblower plays into the hands of the idiots who think that it is somehow critical to the impeachment of Trump, to examine the motives and biases of the whistleblower. A now long-running comparison is the example of the person who went to a pay phone to report a bank robbery anonymously, and then vanishes. The police come, find the robbery in progress and arrest the bank robbers. At the trial of the bank robbers, does anybody care whether the anonymous phone caller had a grudge against the bank robbers? Of course not. The caller is of no more importance.

And yes, I know that Mickey Kaus addressed this issue and that Althouse blogged it. It was complete nonsense by Kaus, which looks worse and worse as it goes on.

Bob Boyd said...

The whistleblower called police and reported that Trump robbed a bank. Trump was in the bank, but he has an account there. The bank said Trump transacted ordinary bank business and they weren't robbed. The video shows Trump in the bank conducting an ordinary bank transaction.

But there is no need for police to talk to the whistle blower? Okay Chuck.

Chuck said...

Oh by the way; it seems that Bill Kristol really wanted the whistleblower to get POTY. He was clearly not concerned about the same things I was, and didn't share the thoughts I posted just above.

One of the few recent instances where I have disagreed with Kristol. He probably just wanted to promote impeachment in general.

TheOne Who Is Not Obeyed said...

Poor Chuck. Still deluded into believing the Marxist talking point that a political hack leaker who has no direct evidence of that which he leaked is a "whistle blower". Can't wrap his head around the fact that the identify of someone who is relaying hearsay and coordinating with the coup plotters in the Dem chambers is absolutely vital to have out in the open and his testimony is key to nailing Schiff and his fellow traitors to a wall.

Since Chuck uses the Left's usual tactic of spinning a deceitful analogy, permit me to correct it for him: If someone hears third hand from a friend of a robber that a jewelry store is being robbed, and reports it to another gang, and then is caught out by the police for his criminal activities -- then yes, his identity and his relationship to the robbers and the other gang is very relevant to whether he is a reliable witness or not. And also relevant to whether he goes to jail with the robbers and that other gang or not.

Sports Illustrated named Megan Raponie, SI "Person" of the year. You have to hunt for it on the SI website, because their readership is more interested in who won last Sunday's football game. SI's cover shot of her is interesting. She's duded up with a fashionable short haircut, and reclining on a Victorian sofa in an ankle-to-chin old timey Victorian dress.

This is all designed to cover-up the fact that she's 5-6, 132 lbs. and has the stick arms and legs of a 14 y/o boy. If you put her in the bikini, she'd have to be in the Gay SI sports illustrated edition because she's flatter than a table top. She also has weird, "man Hands" full of veins. I say "weird" because she's in her 30s.

So you have completely changed my hypothetical. Okay. We'll just keep issuing competing hypotheticals.

"The bank says..." in your hypothetical is weird. Because an Inspector General did look at the whistleblower complaint did indeed express an "urgent concern" and that it "appeared credible." That is the opposite of your hypothetical wherein the bank said that there was nothing untoward.

In actuality, if we used your hypothetical, "the bank" would not release any video, and it instructed all of its personnel not to testify. (Of course this begins to put "the bank" in the position of a co-conspirator in the robbery. But hey it was your hypothetical.)

God damn it. We have people who were listening, live, to Trump's phone call with Zelensky. We have the people who were tasked with communicating directly with Ukrainian counterparts on the matters of a request that Zelensky announce an "investigation." And the people who were executing a delay in the extension of allocated military aid. We don't have Giuliani, and Trump, and Mulvaney because they refuse to answer questions.

The whistleblower reported concerns, based on information. An investigation is what determines whether any claims or defenses have merit. And a trial based on evidence determines whether anybody pays any price for what the evidence shows.

There is a better 'witness for the prosecution' on every single aspect of the whistleblower's complaint, than the whistleblower himself or herself.

So describe exactly why the whistleblower is a necessary witness, and if not a necessary witness, then why would any information be needed to impeach such a non-witness?

The whistleblower is a perfectly interesting topic for debate. But I am increasingly careful about these personal back-and-forth battles.

I could find the climate change theory more believable if it weren't being pushed by the stupidest and least trustworthy gang around: the "liberal" Hive. It's like if you repeatedly caught a guy trying to pick your pocket, and then he told you, "The sky is falling!" And he also was a member of a cult that told you, "There is no truth but our truth." Would you be inclined to believe him, or disbelieve him?

As we saw with Horowitz's limited purview and in his report, hiding the "whistleblower" now would largely conceal from discovery any "documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the decisions to open the [Russia now Ukraine] investigation".

This is the media take-away the Deep State demanded with respect to Crossfire Hurricane, this is the media take-away Schiff wants now.

gadfly said...

So Time has discovered that a teenager is smarter than educated adults!

Back in 1956, Roger Revelle and Hans Suess conceived that:

"…humans are carrying out a large-scale geophysical experiment through world-wide
industrial activity that could lead to build-up of atmospheric carbon dioxide greater
than the rate of carbon dioxide production by volcanoes."


And the CO2 "greenhouse effect" suddenly became the theme song of the global warmests. When actual world climate results failed to support that man was killing man by burning fossil fuels to counter poverty, the mid-1990s brought dishonest presentations designed to prove that our weather had become more severe. Y'all must remember incidents such as the the Mann Hockey Stick invention, the Climategate emails and the changing historic weather records.

But the truth is that "follow the money" puts control of spending in the hands of politicians who dole out the green stuff to so-called climatologists. Today's science shows no relationship between climate and CO2 but it does show that, based on the evidence, solar activity, not atmospheric CO2, is the primary driver of Earth’s temperature. Has Greta Thunberg studied this evidence?

An ironic picture for me in the sense of officially displaying the foolishness and ignorance of the young. I live next to the coast and every year some very stupid tourist(s) stand on the rocks when there are wild pounding waves, despite the warnings. I guess they want to get close to nature? Or they think they are omnipotent? Unfortunately many people are killed when they are hit by waves and knocked off the rocks. It's always someone from out of town, no one local. Greta - 2019 Person of the year: a clueless child who believes she is all powerful. We're supposed to be inspired by this idiocy?

I bet most Americans (a clear majority) had no idea who she was before this, and probably still don't know. So, you can be "Person of the Year" and virtually unknown to most people. Even she admitted just the other day that her actions have had no effect, and have accomplished nothing. So unknown, and unaccomplished , not to misinformed are the qualification for "Person of the Year". Yea, Time!

Heck, I’m over 70 and I haven’t read it in years. There was one exception. Last week I noticed a copy in my doctor’s waiting room, which was about six months old. I skimmed it, and discovered that not a single prediction about Donald Trump came true. Not one. Don’t plan to look at it again.

As for little Greta, she has been pumped full of junk science. She needs to be forced to take genuine science classes and have an end put yo her ridiculous travels.

Michael, a review of my opinions will show that my conservative view remains the same. Where I disagree with Republicans, who used to claim to be conservative, is that I can never support a criminal in the oval office. And I made that stand long before Trump got elected by so-called conservatives acting like migratory lemmings.

Seeing Red said...

Via Insty:

Alarmist scientists have been caught red-handed tampering with raw data in order to exaggerate sea level rise.

The raw (unadjusted) data from three Indian Ocean gauges – Aden, Karachi and Mumbai – showed that local sea level trends in the last 140 years had been very gently rising, neutral or negative (ie sea levels had fallen).

But after the evidence had been adjusted by tidal records gatekeepers at the global databank Permanent Service for Mean Sea Level (PSMSL) it suddenly showed a sharp and dramatic rise.

The whistle was blown by two Australian scientists Dr. Albert Parker and Dr. Clifford Ollier in a paper for Earth Systems and Environment.

Kenneth Richard at No Tricks Zone reports:

The authors expose how PSMSL data-adjusters make it appear that stable sea levels can be rendered to look like they are nonetheless rising at an accelerated pace.

The data-adjusters take misaligned and incomplete sea level data from tide gauges that show no sea level rise (or even a falling trend). Then, they subjectively and arbitrarily cobble them together, or realign them. In each case assessed, PSMSL data-adjusters lower the earlier misaligned rates and raise the more recent measurements. By doing so, they concoct a new linearly-rising trend....

Gahrie said...

From Wiki:

Since the last glacial maximum about 20,000 years ago, the sea level has risen by more than 125 metres (410 ft), with rates varying from less than a mm/year to 40+ mm/year, as a result of melting ice sheets over Canada and Eurasia. Rapid disintegration of ice sheets led to so called 'meltwater pulses', periods during which sea level rose rapidly. The rate of rise started to slow down about 8,200 years before present; the sea level was almost constant in the last 2,500 years, before the recent rising trend that started at the end of the 19th century or in the beginning of the 20th.

So for 11,2OO years the sea levels rise around 410 feet, that's around half a foot every seven years. Then the seas stopped rising almost 2,500 years.

For at least the last 100 years, sea level has been rising at an average rate of about 1.8 mm (0.07 in) per year

So if you accept the measurements of the alarmists, the oceans are currently rising at a level of a little over half a foot every century.

Unless you're me and have sat mouth agape, at this entire spectacle, since the creepy climate kid arrived on the scene. Or the Harmonic Convergence in 1985, I don't remember now.

It's only more NewAge madness, and the fact someone is attempting to raise it's level again, that have become predictable.

It really is like the issues that animated the negative side of my marraige have seeped into the world, and now, hilariously, I get the honor of watching everyone else deal with them - but with my own 20/20 hindsight - finding they're no better than I was at it. Even with resources I never had.

How to deal with an active, aggressive, cult insanity that destroys all it touches - and then blames you - that few acknowledge? It's a toughie.

Good luck with that.
