Are you implying that the Democrats are the only party that engages in gerrymandering?

.

" Finally, what if the Red Party controls the state government? The Reds know they're at a numeric disadvantage. But with some creative boundary drawing -- the type you see in grid 3, "neither compact nor fair" -- they can slice the Blue population up such that they only get a majority in two districts. So despite making up 40 percent of the population, the Reds win 60 percent of the seats. Not bad!

In the real world, this is similar to what we see in Pennsylvania. In 2012, Democrats won 51 percent of the popular House vote. But the only won 5 out of 18 House seats -- fewer than one third. This was because when Pennsylvania Republicans redrew the state's Congressional districts, they made highly irregular districts that look like the one below, PA-7, one of the most geographically irregular districts in the nation."

Jon Dozer

Exactly Paul. I also give you North Carolina- ground zero for gerrymandering. It would normally be a tilting blue state due to demographic changes in the last 30 years, but the GOP holds on, barely, thru this tool of right wing gerrymandering.

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/18/opinion/racial-gerrymandering-in-north-carolina.html

This year, the tide appears to be turning in this important and growing swing state. Should have a Dem governor, and small chance of a Dem Senator and pickups in their House races.

George Rebane

Interesting that both Messrs Emery and Dozer missed the critical point of my post on modern gerrymandering - the kind that includes all residents, legal and illegal.

Paul Emery

George

Gerrymandering is gerrymandering. Are you implying you support the Repubs in cases such as cited above?

Jon Dozer

OK George, do understand the point of legislative representation of non-citizens under your definition of gerrymandering. Speaking of Interesting, very interesting that you would question the legal knowledge of your remaining pillars of conservative jurisprudence, Alito and Thomas. Perhaps they had a moment of intellectual honesty and simply couldn't find the mention of a legislator representing Citizens Only in the Constitution.

Todd Juvinall

I think Emery and Dozer just don't understand what GeorgeR wrote about gerrymandering. Remember the I-95 to get a black for Congress? Now there was some serious GM. But the point is all residents. LA has a city with some estimate 30-40 percent illegals. Yet each district, state local, Federal are apportioned with a total population. Ginsberg and the other libs think that is just fine. So a representative get to have both illegal and legal people making the districts equal. 750,000 per Congressional I believe. Did I get that right?

I wonder if Steve has smaller, less meaty fists than jeffy? Dare I say that jeffy would be incapable of formulating a sentence like that.

Jon Dozer

Todd, I kindly refer you to my 5:12. And correction needed on your post;
LA does not have 30-40% illegals. That would be over 1.5 million illegals on your high end. Not possible.

Thanks.

Scott Obermuller

Please stop expecting miracles, George.
Paul is the master of 'they do it too'.
Somewhere past the age of ten, Paul, humans are expected to mature emotionally and intellectually out of that. I do hope you realize you can rationalize every single evil act in the world with that bit of comedy.
As far as the jonnie boy - good luck. He's a troll. 'nuff said.
Funny that neither leftie had anything to say about California's latest gerrymandering.
As far as your main point - I'm afraid you're pissing in the wind. They're here. How and why mean absolutely nothing. I'm really surprised some small pueblo in Mexico hasn't sued in Fed Court for standing as being left out of FEMA largesse or some other kind of US govt handout. After all, most of the town's citizens have gotten all sorts of stuff from Uncle Sam. Just because they're stuck back at the farm due to their fear of 'right wing' militias in the US apprehending them at the border, why shouldn't they cash in as well? And hey! Darn it! Where's our voting ballots from California just like our relatives got in the mail? Get with it, man - borders mean nothing. Uh - at least if you're talking about our country. Other countries have their own cultural norms we are to respect. Just mentioning the word 'illegal' is probably going to get you in trouble with the local fed atty. Watch it. It does make the illegals 'uncomfortable' and that is a modern day no-no.

Todd Juvinall

Dozer, OK, state your source and give us the link. I think I am correct.
A apology from you will be expected forthwith.

Scott Obermuller

"Gerrymandering is gerrymandering."
How long did it take you to formulate that brilliant bit of logic, Paul? One toke? Ten?
We can play this game all day long. Care to explain the latest districts in CA, Paul? When have you gone on record as opposing the left's gerrymandering of your own state?

Todd Juvinall

From the Los Angeles Almanac

"Unauthorized Immigrants* in California and Los Angeles County

According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), an estimated 2,830,000 unlawful immigrants resided in California in 2011

Scott, good god man @5:38, how bout chilling out there. Why the need to attack Paul Emery? My god, we all thought you'd lose those tight undies once you crossed into God's Country. I have friends in Boise- very progressive sections and tons of yoga studios. I can get you a reference for one, just need to ask.

Jon Dozer

Todd, 60% of the illegal residents in CA don't reside in LA. Sorry.

Paul Emery

Scott, Todd, George

I'm opposed to all Gerymandering and yes that includes California. That's how Nevada County ended up being tossed into a Republican Congressional district and it was done by the Democrats. So I take it you are opposed to the Gerrymandering that the Repubs pulled off in NC as noted in my 4:38.

Todd Juvinall

Jon Dozer | 29 June 2016 at 06:52 PM

OK what is your source/link? I gave mine from LA.

Scott Obermuller

"My god, we all thought you'd lose those tight undies once you crossed into God's Country."
Uh - who's 'we'?
Starts to get a little strange when the left fixates on underwear.
From dear old Paul - "I'm opposed to all Gerymandering and yes that includes California."
Ah, yes - but we notice you didn't answer the question.
Since you are 'opposed' to 'all' gerrymandering, why is it we never hear about that until now? California has been slit up big time to help the Dems, Paul.
There are only so many ways to do it. The left has to 'give' the Rs a district or 2 somewhere. Nevada County was just one way to do it. State-wide, NC is small potatoes. Why don't we look at the bigger districts, hmmm? And some rather strange border lines that crawl all over the place.

Todd Juvinall

I would like gerrymandering to allow republicans some votes in the legislature and Congress. But as we see the demoncrats have skewed it pretty good. Proportionate representation is non-existent in our state.

Walt

On the subject of GM,, Forget the redistricting of Ca.? Recall the "citizen" panels that were to draw them up? The LIBS made damned sure they had control of the sharpy.
Plenty of control. Right down to the Right having little or no input.
I applied for one of those slots. Almost gained entry. Then got the letter of "we have all we need from the Repubs."

Paul Emery

Scott

To the best of my knowledge this topic has never been discussed before.
So do you support the Gerrymandering the Pubbers did in NC?

Walt

Really paul? It must have been that good a job when NC is LIBville.

Jon Dozer

Walt,
Can I explain something?...NC is actually a STATE. On the East Coast, North of South Carolina, South of Virginia. You can look up the rest.

Thanks...

(edupacation is a good thing)

Scott Obermuller

So - now Paul is claiming he can't post about how exercised he is about those darn Dems gerrymandering California until someone else brings up the topic first.
Right.
And - once the topic is brought up, he only complains about the Rs doing it.
Then he tries to cover his ass with the most pathetic lame excuse.
Paul - it's your MO. You have done this so many times.
You excuse the left or the Dems doing something wrong by saying: 'well - the Rs do it or Bush did it or some one else did it 50 years ago'.

Walt

Stick to porn on that PC "jon".

NC also stands for Nevada City numbnuts. We never know where paul my be taking about.

LIBS are full of dirty tricks. Like rescinding the law that kept felons from voting.
Funny how lawbreakers are constituents of the Left.

Paul emery

Guy Scott you don't even understand that I am actually agreeing with you.

Paul Emery

That's Gosh Scott you don't understand that I am actually agreeing with you.

George Rebane

My position on gerrymandering in general has been made clear on these pages for years. And yes, the illegals are here, but that in no way implies that they are to be counted for congressional representation along with American citizens. The lame point that “intellectual honesty” caused the justices to find in the Constitution that Congress represented all residents is beyond the pale, as is the reciprocal claim that the Constitution contains the explicit restriction that Congress represents only citizens. Those are cheap red herrings introduced for lack of a defendable position on the matter.

On points on which the Constitution is silent/moot, then according to my lights it should be interpreted restrictively in the spirit it was written. For students missing US history, the Founders’ seminal principle in crafting a constitution for this democratic republic was that it should always be interpreted to constrain the federal government’s powers. And yes indeed, RR is not a rubber stamp for SCOTUS, or its so-called conservative justices, or even Republicans. I have before, will do again, and am now disagreeing with the court’s 4apr16 ruling on the reasonable basis outlined above. Live with it.

BradC

Evenwel v. Abbott was all about politics/gerrymandering by Pubbys. Illegals cannot vote - so, nothing to fear there. The inlusion of illegals in population figures can result in House representatives being 'gerrymandered' to illegal-heavy districts. So what? That is the status quo, and the Supremes reconfirmed that concept.

If the Pubbys wanted to change things, they should concentrate on immigration reform and do 'something' that would attract foreign nationals into their 'tent' (might need to trade that extreme right wing 4-season survival pup tent in for a big Burning Man surplus parachute party tent, or a Coleman family tent). It is going to be kind of hard with a guy like Trump as the front man.

The other side of the 'illegals in your neighborhood' coin is that the bigger a district's population (illegal, or otherwise), the bigger piece of the Federal pork barrel they get. So, there is a 'plus' to having illegals in the 'hood.

When an 8-0 vote, including 4-0 vote by 'conservative' justices seems too left-wing liberal, you might want to see if you are standing next to the extreme right field fence - everything can start to look like left-field from there.

Gregory

George, regarding Evenwel, the SCOTUS deferred to the states... and even going back to the oft-misinterpreted 3/5 rule for slaves (slavers wanted slaves counted as one, Abolitionists wanted zero), it was expected that Congress would be making decisions affecting people who cannot vote or be citizens. I personally think Evenwel would have been more just had it gone the other way but the conservatives on the court thought the letter of the law didn't agree. The states have the power to decide and the court decided against stepping on that power.

Regarding the WSJ op-ed on CO2 sensitivity, it's unusual to see a non-physicist to get it spot on correct. Let me reproduce the money paragraph:

Here’s what you also won’t learn from most climate reporting: Climate models that predict significant warming presume natural feedbacks that magnify the impact of human-released carbon dioxide by 100% to 400%. Models that presume no dominant feedbacks see warming of only about one degree Celsius over the entire course of a doubling of atmospheric CO2. Who knows what future scientific advances will reveal, but models that assume minimal feedback are more consistent with the warming seen so far—and remember, we’ve been burning coal for 200 years and accumulating temperature records for longer than that.

To put some numbers to that, CO2 by itself does provide about one degC (closer to 1.2C) of warming, and it's fairly well established that as long as the overall (perturbation plus response) sensitivity is 2.0degC or less, no runaway warming can be expected in exactly the same way that a public address system won't squeal horribly as long as the volume isn't turned up past a certain point. Well, some of the best evidence is that overall sensitivity is pretty damn close to that 1.2C, meaning the positive feedbacks assumed from the application of the theory the whole AGW scare in the first place DON'T EXIST.

And, because of the logarithmic progression of that 1.2C sensitivity... the next 100ppm CO2 will have less effect than the first 100ppm increase. We won't get the first 1.2C until we get all the way to 600ppm (we started at about 300ppm and are now in the vicinity of 400ppm), and the next 1.2C would be in place if we actually get to 1200ppm, and I'll make a wild guess that it would be impossible for humanity to extract enough fossil fuels to get there.

In a way, the lack of positive feedbacks in the climate system may be a shame because that theory was seen, in the '70's, to be a possible geoengineering path out of the ice age that was the scare du jour, and a real ice age (not just a miserable Maunderish Little Ice Age) will eventually be in our future. A real Little Ice Age may well be in our immediate future and I'd say it couldn't come soon enough but it will kill millions if not billions of people, so I'll refrain from wishing oblivion upon that many people.

A failure of winter crops would make it difficult to feed all the mouths we have, and a failure of the summer crops will bring hunger even to wealthy countries.

George Rebane

BradC 744am - Mr Croul, yours is the latest attempt by frustrated liberals on these pages to put my most revealed ideology and belief system into one of the two or three buckets that your background has provided you (and your fellow travelers). There is little I can say in response to anyone who always simplistically stereotypes a person based on his misunderstanding of their most recent communication.

Opposing the reconfirmation of one egregious and specific status quo about gerrymandering, or anything else for that matter, does not reveal enough information about a person to affix on him any political label. In your case, I would challenge you to provide a cogent definition of an "extreme" right-winger that would give third parties a reliable discriminant to separate out 'extreme right-wingers' from everyone else. And then you could make yourself look even more ridiculous by attempting to cite material from 10 years of RR and my credo that conform to your discriminant.

George Rebane

Gregory 902am - While all you say is correct, I continue concerned about the non-impact that our citing science and reason has on cynical/calcified collectivists bent on reshaping global society. I've had this discussion for years with our fellow skeptics practicing a similar approach - Russ Steele and Anthony Watts come to mind - and none of us can improve on the futile approach to which we all seem to revert. Without effect, reason washes off the un- and pre-reasonable. Perhaps the best we can hope for with such arguments is the slow accretion of the reasonable undecideds into the ranks of the skeptics.

Gregory

"Perhaps the best we can hope for with such arguments is the slow accretion of the reasonable undecideds into the ranks of the skeptics."

Of course!

My go-to quote on that is distinctly 19th Century:
"Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one."

Some who are convinced of the doom of the planet to the point of insanity won't believe the scientific realities until glaciers are poised to scrape Toronto off the planet (maybe 1000 years away, maybe 10,000, maybe 100), but I think a stunningly cold winter and breaking the dike holding 'skeptical' scientists away from the nightly news, including NPR and PBS, will eventually have all the late night comics getting laughs at the expense of the Michael Manns and Gavin Schmidts of the world, not to mention virtually the entire Democratic Party leadership.

Eating is a powerful motivation, and what is paying for Sacramento's daily beans and tortillas at the moment is AB32, the Global Warming Solutions Act. They will be protecting that rice pot with everything they've got.

Gregory

Another thought....Coal and oil fans may rejoice in the thought that when a cooling starts, the chicken littles will quickly demand a ramping up of fossil fuel extraction... burn, baby, burn, in a misguided attempt at stemming the cold. It will help, just not that much. Mother Nature has the volume knobs for temperature and the biggest one is the Sun, both for the primary driver (sunlight) and secondary drivers (the magnetosphere and solar wind) that modulate the galactic cosmic rays which significantly drive the creation of cloud condensation nuclei. Clouds control how much sunlight gets bounced back into space without warming land or oceans.

I can think of a handful of scientists (mostly physicists) who I think deserve Nobels... the real science Nobels decided by the Sweden's Academy, not the Peace Prize handed out by Norwegian politicians... who have been doing the most interesting and most ignored research on climate drivers. A physics Nobel going to a flaming skeptic will go a long way towards making Climate Alarmism so 20th century.

According to NASA’s Spaceweather.com:

Sunspot number: 0
Updated 30 Jun 2016

Spotless Days
Current Stretch: 7 days
2016 total: 11 days (6%)
2015 total: 0 days (0%)
2014 total: 1 day (<1%)
2013 total: 0 days (0%)
2012 total: 0 days (0%)
2011 total: 2 days (<1%)
2010 total: 51 days (14%)
2009 total: 260 days (71%)

The last time sunspots vanished for a whole week was in Dec. 2010–a time when the sun was bouncing back from a long Solar Minimum. In this case, the 7-week interregnum is a sign that a new Solar Minimum is coming.

The sunspot cycle is like a pendulum, swinging back and forth every 11-years or so between times of high and low sunspot number. The next low is expected in 2019-2020. Between now and then sunspots will become increasingly rare with stretches of days, then weeks, then months of “billiard-ball suns.”

More on the threat of a Little Ice Age can be found here: https://nextgrandminimum.wordpress.com

Gregory

Russ, a watch on spotless day statistics is a bloody waste of time as it happens on average every 11 years, a little bit longer in during solar maximums (such as most of the 20th century), longer if during a time of solar minimums. Yes, we're approaching the end of Cycle 24. Big whoopie. Cycle 25 being weak compared to the very weak 24, then we'll have something real to natter about but at the moment, all we have are prognostications. The experiment is running and only Mother Nature can make it run faster. She won't.

George, the Swedish Academy is still run by real scientists and they have an ornery streak. They can change their minds on a dime. The Nobel is a real possibility sooner, not later.

Gregory

Damn, my brain was switching between periods and frequency, and my fingers were lagging behind. One of the sentences should have read
"a little bit more often during solar maximums (such as most of the 20th century), less often if during a time of solar minimums"

Here's a fine figure showing this... hot or cold, regular excursions towards zero sunspots are expected.

I have to say Trump nails it when talks about Clinton and the TPP

"Here’s how it would go: she would make a small token change, declare the pact fixed, and ram it through. That’s why Hillary is now only saying she has problems with the TPP ‘in its current form,’ – ensuring that she can rush to embrace it again at her earliest opportunity."

However he blew any possible support from Wall Street and the Chamber of Commerce lobby types when he vowed to pull out of NAFTA.

As you recall the TPP was the one item Obama and the Republican had no problem marching arm and arm with. It shows where the real power is.

Net gain ? Clinton scores because she will get all the big bucks. The shock and awe from her bulging bank account will be a sight to see.

Glad I don't have to choose between them. Lesser of two evils won't work for me this time. The evil quota is off the charts with both candidates.

When Dozer saw that merely adding a couple of uppercase letters to the name, Jon Smith was still creating some confusion so Mr. Dozer appeared. Welcome Mr. Dozer and thanks for straightening things out. Goodbye Jon Smith, formerly jon smith the first.
See, I give credit where credit is due, no matter your race, creed, or religion.

Finally, Mr. Dozer, after I blew my top, I need to set the story straight. I should have said "toss back a few drinks, corn hole the living day lights out of you, then drag your sorry over to Ambassador's Chris Stevens local gravesite and corn hole you again half to death. A little reenactment of what happened to a good loyal Democrat card carrying member of Team Hillary. Then you can do your happy dance on an American's grave because Hillary, like you, put political expediency first. Just a little collateral damage in Clinton land, right? Nothing to see here.

Democrats keep lying about global warming

by Dr. Ed Berry

The University of Montana continues to lie about Global Warming and Steve Running.

Today, the University of Montana Flathead Lake Biological Station announced it will host a presentation on July 5 titled, “What’s New in the Global Warming World?” Their announcements reads:

Join the Bio Station and the Flathead Lakers to hear Dr. Steve Running, University of Montana Regents Professor of Global Ecology speak about the current state of climate change science. He is an internationally renowned climate scientist, participating in the US National Climate Assessment, the NASA Science Advisory Council, and the 4th Assessment of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, sharing the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.

Their announcement is fraudulent.

Running is not a climate scientist. He was a “Professor of Forest Ecology.” Now he is a “Professor of Global Ecology.” Note the new reference to globalism. Steve Running is a globalist who promotes the globalist myth of global warming. He does a disservice to all Montanans.

Dr. Steve Running masquerades as something he is not. Climate is a subject of physics, not ecology. Physics and ecology are entirely different disciplines. The Democrats support his fraud. They might as well claim a law degree makes one a brain surgeon and a medical degree makes one a trial lawyer.

Steve Running does NOT share a the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize.

The University of Montana Flathead Lake Biological Station announcement claims Running shares the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize. Facts show Running’s claim to a Nobel Peace Prize is a baldfaced lie. Given he lies about who he is, how can you believe his claims about climate?

In addition, a Nobel Peace Prize has nothing to do with science. The Flathead Biological Station commits fraud when it suggests a Nobel Peace Prize relates to accuracy in science.

The Democrats’ worst failure is their lie about global warming. They do not understand the scientific method. Democrats are mentally incapable of scientific debate. They just assume they are correct and denigrate anyone who disagrees with them.

They think science is about cherry-picking data that seems to support their preconceived hypothesis. Steve Running and the Democrats do not understand that science is just the opposite. Science is about rejecting hypotheses that make wrong predictions.
