With ISIS taking Iraq, Russia acting up, Iran developing nukes, and American families falling apart, President Obama told Coast Guard Academy grads the biggest problem we face is climate change. I watched the video, wondering how come they didn’t get up and walk out. I wonder what would happen to them if they did.

But then, Obama said something curious.

He noted that the global warming concept is part of the Academy’s curriculum. Who knew that? Sure, liberal university professors promote it, but I had no idea it was part of the official study regimen at a Service Academy. What other fairy tales do they teach? The Easter Bunny? Bad luck after walking under a ladder? This country has gone stark raving nuts. The world is on fire and here at home, we’re still mired in a jobless, so-called recovery, and the President is preaching climate change.

The nutcase in the White House.

I do not mean to be disrespectful to the office of the president. But the man now serving is either delusional, or if he actually believes what he told these graduates, supremely ignorant. He blamed most of the worlds’ ills – not on his own administration and his constant dithering and terrible decisions – but on global warming. Oh, he left wiggle room. He always does. But it was quite plain that if we would just abate global warming, he would have a fine, fine legacy.

Boco Haram & global warming.

Yes, folks, our President says global warming is responsible for being a “threat multiplier” that makes things worse in hellholes like Syria. He told the grads that future military missions will have to factor in global warming.


As for the Islamic terrorist group Boco Haram:

“Understand, climate change did not cause the conflicts we see around the world, yet what we also know is that severe drought helped to create the instability in Nigeria that was exploited by the terrorist group Boko Haram.”

How convenient. But if this man actually believes it, he needs professional help – now!

As we say constantly, climate is always changing, mostly due to variations in solar activity. As we also say, better warmer than colder. And God be with us if liberals ever do figure out a way to mess with the weather because they will make things worse.

Our universities are destroying the nation.

Please note that just days before Obama went to New London, Connecticut to declare global warming an “immediate risk” to the United States, Bill Nye the Science Guy had been spreading the same fertilizer at Rutgers. We covered it here at WBDaily.

But last year, students and faculty rebelled when former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was scheduled to give the commencement address. She backed out under pressure.

Universities need a do-over. Kathleen Parker writes about “trigger warnings” on many of our campuses. Here’s how they work. Suppose your humble writer was going to speak at my alma mater, the University of Texas at Austin (fat chance!). Suppose I was going to say that all lives matter. Black lives, Hispanic lives, white lives – and the lives of children still in their mother’s wombs.

This would be expected to do great violence to the sensibilities of feminists (of all genders) on campus. So “Lynn Woolley alerts” would be posted to tell sensitive students that a pro-lifer was on campus and he was going to be saying unapproved things. These things he might say are dangerous and might make it hard to concentrate in class, so “safe zones” will be provided.

I wish I were making this up. But it’s all true.

A small light emerges way down at the end of the tunnel.

Some universities are embarrassed by this. Purdue University is following a lead set by the University of Chicago – both have issued a statement of “principles of free expression.” These two schools are promising that they will:

“…guarantee the broadest possible latitude to speak, write, listen, challenge, and learn… It is not the proper role of the university to attempt to shield individuals from ideas and opinions they find unwelcome, disagreeable, or even deeply offensive.”

Now if only William McRaven, the new UT Chancellor, would pick up the idea and run with it. What are the chances?

How about rotating diversity at commencement time?

The Coast Guard Academy got Obama this time. Next year, they should invite Ted Cruz or George Will. Or, better yet, maybe set up two commencement speeches each year. Have Howard Dean speak at one and Rush Limbaugh at the other. Rush might be speaking to a lone conservative student and his girlfriend — but so be it.

If the liberal speaker was over in the football stadium playing to a full house and the conservative speaker just had one booth at the Student Union, that would really be telling about what type of graduates are being turned out.

But we already know that, don’t we? Columbia and Harvard tuned out a grad that became president and believes global warming is our biggest challenge.

    I wonder if the adolescent girls who are mutilated by these barbarians and the families of the 210,000 people who have been killed by them find comfort in the fact that the Socialists promoting their scam think that their false science presents a bigger threat than ISIS…
