Calm down, climate alarmists; the weather events taking place are nothing new.

Climatologist Patrick Michaels said that recent droughts, warmer temperatures because of El Nino, and the blizzard of 2016 were “business as usual.”

On Monday, all three network morning shows hyped the possibility of former New York City mayor and liberal activist Michael Bloomberg entering the 2016 presidential race. However, only NBC’s Today made any mention of Bloomberg’s nationwide anti-gun crusade as a stumbling block for him.

Salon hates Catholicism the way vegans hate meat – loudly and ad nauseum. It’s latest anti-Catholic screed comes courtesy of one Valerie Tarico, who lists “15 Sexual Hangups we can Blame on the Catholic Church.”

Politico’s Glenn Thrush was granted a 30-minute interview with President Obama, perhaps because the dominant issue was gauzy nostalgia over how awesome Obama was on the trail in 2008. It carried the flavor of the “Chris Farley Show” skit on Saturday Night Live. “Remember when you said you were Hope and Change. That was awesome.”

Thrush told the president that covering Hillary Clinton wasn’t great: “I was with her for 18 months in 2007 and 2008. It was the Bataan Death March.” He and other reporters had “candidate envy,” because Hillary’s events weren’t as dazzling.

Given CNN anchor Chris Cuomo’s long history of liberal spin, viewers of Monday’s town hall forum with the Democratic candidates shouldn’t have high hopes. After all, this is the same man who admitted that reporters “encouraged” socialist Bernie Sanders to enter the race. Cuomo, the brother of New York’s current Democratic governor and the son of another Democratic governor, has also acted as a journalistic shield for Hillary Clinton.

2016 was supposedly the “point of no return” for taking action on global warming, according to former Vice President Al Gore. His tipping point received widespread scorn on the right, resulting in an “Armageddon” clock posted on Rush Limbaugh’s site -- that turns zero Jan. 27.

But don’t expect the liberal news media to remind anyone of Gore’s hyperbolic claim 10 years  later.

After all, the media spent those years embracing Gore’s climate agenda, promoting it and him repeatedly. At the same time, they ignored  critics, errors, failed predictions and his hypocrisy. Just as they will likely ignore that Gore’s time is up.

This week, as President Obama delivers his final State of the Union address, PBS's panel oozes over his "keen, analytical intelligence," with historian Doris Kearns Goodwin saying Obama's speech "reminded me of George Washington's Farewell Address." Meanwhile, PBS's Tavis Smiley slams GOP frontrunner Donald Trump as a "racial arsonist," CNN's Erin Burnett thinks today's Republicans are so extreme they "would hate" Ronald Reagan, and MSNBC's Chris Matthews slams conservative radio host Mark Levin as "one of the most distasteful human beings out there."

Sen. Ted Cruz was interviewed Sunday on the Fox News program Mediabuzz, and host Howard Kurtz suggested that Cruz bashes the media to gain favor with his conservative base. Cruz stunned Kurtz a little by insisting that the "mainstream media" is a pile of "partisan liberal Democrats...almost without exception."

"Any Republican who is running should not be confused and think that the mainstream media are our friends," he said. "They are partisans. They wake up every day fighting for liberal political agendas. The New York Times wants Hillary Clinton to be the next president, and every day from now until the election, they're going to push stories advancing that."

Somebody slap an 'L' on Bill Clinton's forehead . . . Slick Willie has been called many things: a grifter, a snake-oil salesman, even an alleged rapist. But one label that hasn't been affixed to him is the L-word: loser. Until this morning.

On today's Morning Joeafter airing Bill Clinton's recent attack on Bernie Sanders, Scarborough said "I know I'm listening to a loser." Continued Scarborough: "I'm listening to somebody that's losing, that's saying 'oh, they've got better slogans, oh, they've got better this, their polls may be a little higher now, or oh, they may be more angry, but --' I've heard that form of speech a thousand times. And it's never good for the one giving it."

The popular 90's-era science fiction TV show The X-Files is back on prime time with a special 6 episode run. The series, which ran on Fox for 9 seasons between 1993 and 2002 and produced two movies, returned with some new conspiracy theories related to the show’s long quest for the truth about extraterrestrials – as well as a lot of unnecessary politics.

Tricia Bishop is back.

The Baltimore Sun deputy editorial page editor and columnist, who on January 7 advocated "a gun owner registry available to the public online — something like those for sex offenders," posted a follow-up on Friday, claiming that "Gun control advocates (are) the silent majority." Bishop is clearly put off by the ferocity of the blowback she received for advocating that the whole wide world — which she somehow forgets includes stalkers, leftist intimidators, criminals who would like to steal guns, and other criminals who would like to target the unarmed — should be able to know who does and doesn't own a gun in the U.S. Well, ma'am, you really didn't think that everyone you would like to expose for exercising their Second Amendment rights using a "model" similar to that employed for sex offenders would just sit there and take it, did you?

Instead of covering any of the developments that have boiled to the surfice since Tuesday concerning Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal, ABC’s World News Tonight again skipped that aspect of Clinton coverage and spent a portion of its 2016 report on Sunday dithering over recently-posted video of a young Ted Cruz telling the camera that he hopes to achieve “world domination” as an adult.

“Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered” is a well-known tune from the Golden Age of Broadway. A Friday Salon article made it sound as if a song about how today’s conservatives feel could be called “Besieged, Badgered and Beleaguered.”

In a piece pegged to Sarah Palin’s endorsement of Donald Trump, Andrew O’Hehir opined that the right “has become exactly what it has long accused the left of being, not entirely without justification: a bunch of whiners and perennial victims who never shut up about how much they have suffered at the hands of evil but nebulous enemies.”

Last Sunday’s (January 17) episode of Shameless, Showtime’s dramady about a family which excels at scheming to rip off government programs, featured a scene in which a teenager refused to agree to get an abortion. When older sister “Fiona” argues “you have a choice,” pregnant 15-year “Debbie” retorts: “I choose to have the baby.” “Debbie” soon yells: “I’m not killing my baby.” To which, “Fiona” counters: “It’s not a baby. It’s a few cells.” That prompts Debbie to hold up her smartphone screen, demanding: “Does this look like a few cells?”

NBC Meet the Press host Chuck Todd conducted a pretty soft interview with Hillary Clinton on Sunday, especially the way he let Mrs. Clinton get away with suggesting there is no e-mail scandal and “I cannot control what the Republicans leak,” as if the Inspector General of the State Department is some kind of Republican plant.

Todd left it for the end of the interview, and only asked her if she was “concerned” – the softest possible way of putting it, not the Tim Russert way.
