Greta Thunberg doesn’t write her own Facebook posts. They are largely written for her by grown-up environmental activists including her father Svante Thunberg and an Indian delegate to the U.N. Climate Secretariat called Adarsh Pratap.

The truth emerged as a result of a Facebook glitch revealed by Wired. A bug made it briefly possible to see who was really running the accounts of celebrity puppets like Greta.

Australian ‘Climate’ Fires Are Pure Fake News Propaganda

Participants hold placards as they take part in a demonstration demanding the government take immediate action against climate change in Sydney on January 10, 2020, in the wake of deadly bushfires that have killed at least 26 people and destroyed more than 2,000 homes in southeastern Australia. - Tens of …

Australia’s ‘climate’ fires are fast becoming the biggest fake news scare story of 2020. All the world’s stupidest, most annoying, hand-wringing, virtue-signalling leftists, luvvies, eco-loons, shyster politicians, second-rate activist scientists and other bottom feeders are jumping on the bandwagon.

The fires themselves are all too real: no one is disputing that – or the damage they have done. At least 27 people have been killed – including four firemen; an estimated 15.6 million acres have been burned; hundreds of properties have been destroyed; hundreds of thousands of animals, both livestock and wildlife, have been incinerated.

But the narrative that this has anything to do with ‘climate change’ is the purest eco-propaganda fiction. Here is the truth about Australia’s bush fires.

This is about politics, not climate

RIP Britain’s Greatest Conservative Philosopher, Sir Roger Scruton

Sir Roger Scruton has died and Britain has lost her greatest conservative thinker, writer, fox hunting man, philosopher and all-round-hero of the right.

Like so many of the bravest and best, he was a prophet almost without honour in his own country.

In the Eastern European countries where he had fought for freedom under Communism, he was properly recognised as a hero: in 1998 President Vaclav Havel awarded him the Czech Republic’s Medal of Merit (First Class) for his work in the Eighties smuggling samizdat literature and encouraging underground networks behind the Iron Curtain; in June 2019, the Polish President awarded him Poland’s Order of Merit; last month (December 2019) President Viktor Orban of Hungary awarded him their Order of Merit, saying he had ‘foreseen the threats of illegal migration and defended Hungary from unjust criticism.’

In Britain, however, he enjoyed a more mixed reputation — epitomised by a shoddy incident following his appointment in 2018 as chairman of the government’s Building Better, Building Beautiful Commission.

RIP Sir Roger!

Meghan Markle Is NOT a Victim of Racism

Prince Harry and Meghan are quitting the UK because of ‘racism’. Or so claims a particularly ludicrous opinion piece in the New York Times.

“Black Britons know why Meghan Markle wants out,” is the headline.It goes on:

Her treatment has proved what many of us have always known: No matter how beautiful you are, whom you marry, what palaces you occupy, charities you support, how faithful you are, how much money you accumulate or what good deeds you perform, in this society racism will still follow you.

The piece’s author Afua Hirsch is an author and academic with a track record of race-baiting polemic.

Born a child of privilege into an upper-middle-class family, privately educated, blessed with good looks, intelligence and an Oxford University degree, Hirsch is an implausible poster child for black victimhood.

Bushfire of the vanities

By Anton Emdin. Concept Sarah Dudley

Environmental do-gooders, not ‘climate change’, are responsible for the latest inferno.

‘You are literally evil. Dante has a level for you… Now I know that you’re the type who would laugh at a train off to Auschwitz.’ Just one example of the typically caring, nurturing messages I’ve been getting from Australian greenies over the last couple of days. My crime? Telling it like it is about the bushfires.

Princess Yoko Splits Up the Royal Band

Princess Yoko has split up the royal band.

From the Beatles to Spinal Tap it’s an all-too-familiar scenario: pushy new girlfriend arrives on the scene with ludicrous, fancy ideas about how to improve the band’s image; rest of band objects violently to the meddling arriviste; band splits due to ‘creative differences.’

This is what has now happened to Britain’s Royal Family.

Playing the Yoko role is former Suits actress Meghan Markle — aka Princess Pushy; aka the Duchess of Sussex.

Glacier National Park Removes ‘Glaciers Gone by 2020’ Signs

Glacier National Park is replacing signs predicting that its glaciers will be “gone by 2020.”

Sharp-eyed visitors have noticed that far from disappearing by 2020, some of them have actually increased in size, and 29 of the glaciers in the Montana park remain stubbornly unmelted, despite “climate change.”

The National Park Service (NPS) — presumably to hide its embarrassment — started removing the signs by stealth last year.

So Russell Crowe Didn’t Skip Golden Globes to ‘Protect His Family’ From Fires…

Russell Crowe couldn’t attend the Golden Globes on Sunday because it was claimed he was too busy at home “protecting his family from the devastating bush fires.” But this may have been dramatic licence because there are currently no fires near Crowe’s home.

The New Zealand-born actor lives at a 400-hectare property in Nana Glen, near the coastal town of Coffs Harbour in northern New South Wales, Australia. Reportedly he has recently renovated it to entertain his friend Terri Irwin – formerly married to the late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin who died in 2006 after a fatal encounter with a stingray.

Australian Police Arrest 180 Arsonists for Bushfires. Someone Tell Russell Crowe…

Australian police investigating the bushfires have arrested more than 180 alleged arsonists in the past few months. But apparently they forgot to send the memo to Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett, both of whom insisted in their Golden Globes acceptance speeches that the Australian bushfires were in fact caused by ‘climate change.’

“Make no mistake. The tragedy unfolding in Australia is climate change-based,” declared climate expert Crowe on Sunday, in a speech read out for him at the Golden Globes by Jennifer Aniston, supposedly because Crowe was too busy at home “protecting his family from the devastating bush fires.”

But the evidence from Australia appears to contradict this.

Ricky Gervais Deserves a Medal for Roasting the Wankerati at the Golden Globes

If there’s one lesson we on the freedom side of the argument can learn from Ricky Gervais’s superb, heroic, life-affirming performance roasting the Wankerati at the Golden Globes, it’s never, ever, ever apologise; always double down.

It’s, of course, possible that by so spectacularly dissing the hypocrisy of Hollywood culture, Gervais will have killed his U.S. career. But I think it’s much more likely that it will propel him to the unassailable league of Dave Chapelle – another of those rare celebrity voices who stared into the abyss of woke and – unlike Kevin Hart – refused to blink, and emerged stronger and more popular than ever before.

Chapelle, I thought, had set the bar pretty high for sheer daring and tastelessness with his quips on his brilliant recent Netflix show Sticks & Stones – like the one about Macaulay Culkin and Michael Jackson.

Last night’s Golden Globes were Gervais’s hold-my-beer response.
