Weiner Says There Could be More Pics
RUSH: Speaking of all this social media stuff, the Weekly Standard is reporting that more photos of Anthony Weiner might come out, more lewd photos of Anthony Weiner. You have to know that there are more. There are always more than what have been released. People have more. If Weiner was taking photos of himself and sending 'em to one babe, you know it was happening in a lot places. And then that babe forwarding them to other people. It's a balloon process, a geometric progression.
The Weekly Standard article. Weiner told his radio host in the first live interview since announcing his mayoral bid, "People may decide they want to come forward and say, 'Here’s another email that I got,' or another photo. I’m certainly not going to do that. So people may hear things that are true, they may hear things that are not true, but I’m going to try to keep being focused on issues that are important to New York City.”
Now, I would think New York City has seen enough of Weiner. I would think that New York City seen enough and had enough of Weiner. But supposedly Huma is standing beside Weiner, standing with Weiner, encouraging Weiner, supposedly. We'll see.
Government Makes Wild Guess: Active Hurricane Season
RUSH: Well, here we go, folks, the National Weather Service wild guess. Hurricane season starts in eight or nine days, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association, the government, is predicting an active hurricane season it this year. That's very bold. They are saying there will be seven to 11 storms that could become hurricanes. They say that the era of high activity for Atlantic hurricanes continues. What is implied there is because of global warming. It's not stated, but because of it.
Now, may I tell you the truth? With all props to William Gray at the University of Colorado, nobody knows. There's not a single person, there isn't a model, there isn't a computer indication of any kind that can tell us how many hurricanes there are gonna be. They can't tell us where they're gonna rank on the Saffir-Simpson scale, Cat 1 to Cat 5. They can't tell us, if there are hurricanes, where they're going to hit. They can't tell us how much damage is going to be done. They can't tell us what's gonna cause them. And they can't tell us that if the hurricanes come, how we can stop them. And they can't tell us how we can change the direction of the hurricane.
In other words, they can't tell us anything. They don't know. It's all a wild guess. It's the weather. All they can do is take what is known in terms of historical data and once a storm forms, they can then, within a 250-mile range, usually forecast where it's gonna go, and they can get a pretty good indication of its speed. But they can't stop it. They can't change the direction. They can't increase or decrease the intensity, and they can't tell us before it forms that it's going to. They can show us, "It looks like it's favorable over there off the coast of Africa for tropical formation," but they can't predict it.
So what are they doing? Well, they're using historical data and they're saying in every hurricane season there is usually 11 to 15 storms, so it's pretty safe to say that there's gonna be seven to 11 storms. It's a wild guess. But it's all political, folks. It's tied to global warming. And this is the Obama regime Commerce Department. They run the weather and they're the ones making these predictions. In fact, if you recall William Gray, the famed hurricane forecaster, University of Colorado, has said 'til he's blue in the face that global warming has nothing to do with 'em in any way, shape, manner, or form. Formations, intensity, zilch, zero, nada. And I think last year he stopped forecasting. I think he stopped predicting, packed it in, if I'm not mistaken.
So what'll happen is that shortly after June 1st, the media will go stand on the beach in New Orleans and in Florida, and they'll gaze and they'll see if they can see hurricane signs. They'll look for thunderstorm clouds. And when they don't see anything they'll run videotape of past storms showing you the destruction and the damages and actual footage of storms ripping little towns to shreds in preparation for what's coming. You can make book on it.
