Why I’m A Denier (Hint: Because It’s Crap)

Given that it’s Earth Day, I thought I’d re-release an article I wrote about four years ago explaining why I’m a global warming skeptic. Originally published June 10, 2011 in Front Page Magazine.   Why I’m A Global Warming Skeptic By Evan Sayet Let’s begin by acknowledging that the science of global warming is beyond the vast majority of us.  Nonetheless, this does not mean we turn off our brains and simply accept the pronouncements of those sounding the alarm and offering their remedies.  I am a global warming skeptic (to say the least) specifically because I have thought through the issue and the claims of the alarmists just don’t add up.  What follows is my thinking and what it is that has led me to conclude that global-warming is a leftist farce which is being perpetuated for both financial and political reasons. First, I am skeptical because skepticism is the scientific starting point.  Not cynicism but skepticism.  This is especially true when the remedy being proposed is so drastic — in this case requiring the near-total dismantling of society as we know it. I am not overly impressed by talk of a “consensus” as there are enough good and serious scientists who reject the claims of the alarmists to make the pronouncement of “consensus” simply untrue. Besides, every wrong theory that had previously been embraced by society – such as the “fact” that the world is flat – was embraced by a “consensus” of scientists at the time and obviously that consensus was very wrong. My skepticism is only increased with the knowledge that the science of climatology...

Grateful for America (not so much for France)

When you think about it, just about every single thing we use to make our lives better — and to be more productive — was either first invented or later perfected in America.  What do we use on a daily basis that came any time recently from Africa?  Islamic countries or even France?  This short video provides the answer.  (From an event I headlined along with Rick Perry, Bobby Jindal and Carly Fiorina.)      ...

What Forrest Gump says about Liberals

It never ceases to amaze me not only how stupid the Modern Liberal is but that he knows that he’s stupid. In this clip from an event I headlined along with Rick Perry, Carly Fiorina and Bobby Jindal I show how the Liberal-made movie classic Forrest Gump shows their self-awareness. (I’m going on tour, folks.  Double back to my website after this short video for cities and...

Talking about BeTheMedia at CPAC

I sat down with Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey at CPAC to talk about my new venture, Be the Media dot US and a whole lot more.  Be the Media is a company that sells tee-shirts, pins, mugs and other “billboards” that allow you to take the issues to the streets one person at a time.   Everyone sells merchandise, but we — Dr. Karen Siegemund of Rage Against the Media and I — believe we’ve created pithy, timely and powerful products that provide devastating comebacks to Liberal arguments and which serve as conversation starters.  They own the media but we own the truth.  They can hit a million people at once with their lies; we need to be a million people changing one mind at a time. Watch the video (it’s fun) and then go to Be the Media dot US and start the...

Me on Rusty Humphries’ Show

On my cross-country trip I met up with an old friend, the great Rusty Humprhries.  I thought we were just having lunch, but he had other plans.    I got some of the best BBQ ever….and Rusty got an interview.   You decide who got the better of the deal.

The Divorcing of Reward from Merit

Last year at CPAC, I discussed a central and essential part of the Modern Liberal effort: the near-total divorcing of reward from merit.  One devastating example is the ridiculously high hourly salary the Liberals want to make the minimum wage.  This salary is in no way tied to merit or effort and, like banks forced to make housing loans to those whose income and credit history don’t merit it and schools granting admissions to those whose efforts and accomplishments don’t merit it, it’s just another part of the Left’s recipe for undermining the very concept of right and wrong. Here’s the clip. (And please visit my new website Be the Media dot US for thoughtful arguments we can take to the public to defeat Leftist brain washing.)        ...

Why Today’s Generations AREN’T Great

Last year at CPAC I joined a distinguished panel that included National Review editor Rich Lowery, Congressman Steve Scalise and ACU President Al Cardenas.  In this clip I explain why those generations born after World War II were NOT great — and keep getting worse. BTW, I know it’s very hard to see in the photo here but that pin I’m wearing?  It’s from my company Be the Media dot US (bethemedia.us).  It’s just a plain white pin with one tiny black dot.  What does it mean?  Remember when President Obama said, “If you like your healthcare plan  you can keep it…period!”?  Well, THAT’S the period.  Great conversation starter.  Other such things there too — and more and more to come.  Be the Media dot US.   Enjoy, the video.  Here’s the link.  ...

Over the next couple of days I’m going to be posting snippets of my part in a panel discussion between National Review editor Rich Lowry, Congressman Steve Scalise and then-President of the ACU, Al Cadenas.    This one is on why the Modern Liberal seeks to undermine individual success and general prosperity. Watch it here.   http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.c-span.org%2Fvideo%2F%3Fc4526894%252Fevan-sayet-cpac-1a&h=2AQEF8L4a  ...

Generals Talk Trash About Hillary

From the “reset button” to Behghazi, Hillary Clinton’s run as Secretary of State has been for America. Tim Brown of Freedom Outpost put together a terrific piece that exposes how her failures run even deeper. Tim Brown 8 Hours Ago Secret Pentagon Tapes Reveal Admirals & Generals Indictment of Hillary Clinton on Libyan War More damning evidence is coming out about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to top Pentagon officials and a senior Democrat member of Congress, they didn’t put any faith in Clinton’s 2011 war in Libya, according to secret audio recordings which were recovered from Tripoli. According to the sources, they sought to go around the Clinton State Department and open diplomatic channels with the Gadhafi government in an effort to stave off what eventually followed. The Washington Times reports: The tapes, reviewed by The Washington Times and authenticated by the participants,chronicle U.S. officials’ unfiltered conversations with Col. Moammar Gadhafi’s son and a top Libyan leader, including criticisms that Mrs. Clinton had developed tunnel vision and led the U.S. into an unnecessary war without adequately weighing the intelligence community’s concerns. “You should see these internal State Department reports that are produced in the State Department that go out to the Congress. They’re just full of stupid, stupid facts,” an American intermediary specifically dispatched by the Joint Chiefs of Staff told the Gadhafi regime in July 2011, saying the State Department was controlling what intelligence would be reported to U.S. officials. At the time, the Gadhafi regime was fighting a civil war that grew out of the Arab Spring, battling Islamist-backed rebels who wanted to dethrone...

Entire talk from Unite IE

Typically I try to keep my political humor and my more serious political works separate.  But in this talk at the Fox Theater in Riverside, CA– an event with Ann Coulter and Dinesh D’Souza — I mixed it up.  Much of this has been released in snippets, but up until now the entire video has not been out there. Please — enjoy, share….and join us on February 21st at the Fox Theater, this time starring me, Larry Elder, the Politichicks along with a guy named Rick Perry and another guy by the name of Bobby Jindal.

“I’m Offended” Jack Simmon’s New Music Video

I find myself quoted in a lot of places.  Ben Shapiro’s book,  the New York Times. Rush Limbaugh.  But THIS may be the most unusual place I’ve ever found myself quoted.  It’s in the middle of a great new music video from Jack Simmons.  Watch it and pass it  on.  Let’s help Jack make this go viral!  I’ll be offended if you don’t.  ...
