Executive Thespian Interviews With Fiction-Creating Magazine

Obama once said, “Part of this job is also the theater of it.”

Last year, Barack Obama told NBC, “Part of this job is also the theater of it. Well, it’s not something that always comes naturally to me. But it matters. And I’m mindful of that.” Please. Everything Obama does is theater. Case in point: While in Alaska, Obama granted a one-on-one interview with Rolling Stone, the magazine that spun the completely false story about rape on the campus of the University of Virginia. Why did it have to be Alaska? It would have been much easier if Rolling Stone placed one of its writers on the Acela Express from New York to Washington, DC, to chat with POTUS at the White House. But Obama sees the magazine as a supporter of his climate agenda, and so he plays rhetorical theater in the arctic to drive home his message. But it’s one thing to sit in the Oval Office and drone on about how the climate is changing. The reality on the ground in Alaska shows that the science isn’t exactly settled. Take, for example, the Hubbard Glacier. While Obama claims the glaciers are melting (some of them really are) and the polar bears are drowning (they’re not), the Hubbard Glacier is growing. In fact, it’s growing so much that geologist Leigh Stearns, who works at the University of Kansas, predicted last year that the glacier will permanently cut off the Russell Fjord by 2025. But, as she cautioned, the “projections [are] based on our current observations, and should be viewed with skepticism.” The same could be said for man-made climate change.
