Organizers promised that hundreds of thousands would participate in an April 22 March for Science planned for hundreds of cities worldwide and an April 29 People´s Climate March in Washington, DC. These events have no more to do with science or climate change than do UN programs or the Paris climate treaty. Their own leaders make that perfectly clear. A climate website asserts that marchers intend to mark President Trump´s 100th day in office "with a massive demonstration that shows our resistance is not going to wane." They intend to "block Trump´s entire fossil fuel agenda," with Berkeley-style tantrums and riots, most
FTA: ´´Developed nations must de-carbonize, de-industrialize, and reduce their growth, job creation and living standards – while sending trillions of dollars over the coming decades to ruling elites in developing countries that are not required to decrease oil, gas and coal use or greenhouse gas emissions.´´
Translation: ´´This is our best shot at destroying America and we count on the leftwing nutjobs, crazies, free-loaders to carry our message...with violence.´´
Let´em march. They can march right into the freakin ocean. 25 years ago that other whack job Al Gore said that in 20 years the oceans will rise and NYC will be under water, he said that the polar ice caps will be melted and polar bears would be extinct. Well today the oceans are the same, the polar ice caps are still there the polar bears are thriving and NYC IS NOT under water. The only thing that has changed is that Al Gore has made over a 100 million dollars pushing this fraud. Think about it, the two biggest frauds in our history were both started by the sick Democratic Party. Obamacare and Global warming, now called climate change. Do you get it yet, wake up.
Were it not for fossil fuels, none of these nit-wits would be able to show up at the marches. They would be busy gathering nuts, bugs and berries to eat, and pounding their animal skin clothes on rocks down by the river for cleaning, and gathering branches for the fires to keep them warm. Ah - but perhaps fire will be disallowed too in their future world. And it´s not that I would deny them their desire to eat from the land, eschew modern conveniences and shiver in the dark, but they want to impose these things on me. If you deindustrialize and de-carbonize the Western world, where do they think the TRILLIONS they want to send to underdeveloped nations are going to come from? And what are those imaginary trillions going to buy? I cannot understand why these people call themselves ´progressives´.
If only they understood the carbon cycle. It is so logical and beautifully simple. Carbon is essential for every living thing to exist. Trying to remove carbon is an exercise in futility and eventual extinction. Don´t mess with mother nature.
Media Bias: The economy´s weak 0.7% growth in the first quarter was disappointing, to say the least, the worst gain in three years. But to the Trump-despising big media, it seems, it´s really a sign of his failure. CBS and the Associated Press tell us the first quarter´s "lackluster beginning ... marks the first quarterly economic report card for President Donald Trump, who has vowed to rev up the U.S. economy." The Wall Street Journal, which should know better, called the number "the broadest report card on the economy in the nearly 100 days since President Donald Trump took office pledging a
Big Government: We hear endless lamentations about the alleged gender pay gap. But what about the other, very real, pay gap? The one where government workers make far more than their private sector counterparts. To get a clear picture of public-private pay gap, the Congressional Budget Office looked at pay scales from 2011 through 2015, controlling for things like location, occupation, veteran status, demographics, as well as education. It found that among those with a high school diploma, federal civilian workers earned 34% more, on average, than similar workers in the private sector. But government workers also get benefits that are 93%
Socialized Health Care: Never let it be said that California doesn´t march to the beat of a different drummer. While the rest of the country has had second, third and even fourth thoughts about having a single-payer health care system, the Golden State boldly marches forward into fiscal oblivion. As the Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday, "A sweeping measure that would establish government-run universal health care in California cleared its first legislative hurdle Wednesday as scores of supporters crammed into the Capitol to advocate for a single-payer system." Let´s unpack that sentence a bit. It´s true that so-called State Bill 562 is
Money in Politics: President Obama´s devotees no doubt had hoped he would come out swinging against President Trump. Instead, the only thing he´s done so far is cash in on his presidency with a massive book deal and a six-figure speech gig. Earlier this month, Obama reportedly signed a book deal with Penguin Random House for more than $65 million for one book written by him and another written by Michelle. (The exact amount wasn´t made public.) Assuming that figure is correct and they both write 500 page books, that amounts to roughly $144 per word for each of them. After writing
Cutting Taxes: President Trump´s much-awaited tax reform plan is here. As promised, it will deeply cut taxes, make the code simpler and help restore economic growth, job creation and entrepreneurship. It´s the most pro-growth tax plan since the Reagan Boom, and that´s saying a lot. At the unveiling of the tax reform plan on Wednesday, the White House described it as "the biggest individual and business tax cut in American history." That´s no lie. And here´s a surprise: one group that will especially benefit, but seldom gets mentioned, is Millennials. If Trump´s supply-side tax-cut magic works as it should, many of these young
Regulations: One of the least appreciated decisions by President Trump has been his appointing Ajit Pai to run the Federal Communications Commission. Pai has long been a skeptic of the FCC´s manhandling of industry, and is pushing to get the government out of the internet. The FCC imposed "net neutrality" rules on the internet in February 2015. The argument made by consumer groups and some industry players was that — without federal intervention — internet service providers would treat traffic differently, charging more for those who seek to get in the fast lane. Net neutrality would, advocates said, keep the
Taxes: If White House rumors are correct, President Trump is about to make slashing the corporate tax rate to 15% the centerpiece of his tax-reform plan. It´s a smart move. Not only will it kick start the economy and job growth, but it´s likely he´ll be able to get bipartisan support. Right now, there is no consensus on broad-based tax reform. So, at least for now, a broad tax reform package including tax cuts, fewer deductions and a flattening of tax rates may be tough to achieve. Even Republicans, who are eager for some kind reform, remain split on how
After a leisurely three month vacation, Michelle Obama has made her first public appearance since the inauguration. Looking refreshed and relaxed after her three-month vacation, the former first lady greeted the audience with a smile and a wave at the AIA Conference on Architecture 2017 in Florida on Thursday. Obama was the keynote speaker at the event, organized by the American Institute of Architects, where she spoke about her time as Chicago´s assistant commissioner of planning and development. The former first lady wore a long black, white and beige dress which showed off her toned arms at the event as she also
Saturday marks President Trump’s 100th day in office, and to celebrate the occasion he got a bit too candid in an Oval Office interview with Reuters. Obviously certain elements of being president are pretty fun, but President Trump has discovered that it isn’t all playing with trucks and pressing a button that makes Cokes appear. Sometimes there’s work to be done, and as it turns out being leader of the free world is a lot harder than running a fake university and playing a caricature of a rich person on TV.“I loved my previous life. I had so many things
So how much of our money did Obama ship to the terrorist regime in Iran? We hear $150 billion. We are not sure. Could be a dollar less, a dollar more. We’ll never know for sure. That’s because his entire administration operated in the dark. That’s how he governed and that’s how he got himself elected, in lies and in stealth, and the news media did the rest. They covered for him. They let him get away with murder – and in this case, that is not a cliché, it’s fact. Today, in eye-popping news, we learn, from the New York Post via
He has floated some conspiracy theories for years, but now President Donald Trump will get to play a crucial role in the long-running saga over the government´s Kennedy assassination records. The 1992 JFK Assassination Records Collection Act, signed by President George H.W. Bush, set a 25-year timetable for declassification of assassination records dealing with President Kennedy. The law set up a single collection of records at the National Archives, and set up a process for declassification. The law required the release of all government records dealing with the assassination within 25 years – with the exception of those the president certifies for
Baltimore’s mayor asked the FBI to send in reinforcements Wednesday to help the city get its murders under control. Mayor Catherine Pugh, speaking at a news conference, explained she went to the FBI’s Baltimore office for extra agents to join with police officers in combating a skyrocketing murder count, reports CNN. “Murder is out of control. There are too many guns on the streets. We’re looking for all the help we can get,” Pugh said. The city already has 101 murders for the year, a number not seen in almost 20 years. The mayor’s spokesperson warned the violence could rise
Muslim reformer Zuhdi Jasser has recently attacked leaders of the anti-Jihad movement in America. He equated them with jihadists when he called them the derogatory word, alt-jihadists, meaning that Americans who speak and write against the evils of Islamic jihad and sharia are just as bad as jihadists. (snip)I have always respected what Zuhdi Jasser was trying to do and avoided contradicting him in public, even though I do not believe that Islam is reformable. I have kept my opinion to myself regarding the false hope Muslim reformers are giving to the Americans regarding Islam. But when Jasser attacked leaders
The many versions of Caitlyn Jenner, chronicled in her new book, The Secrets of My Life, have passed through a dizzying series of variations, from a Wheaties box-ready, gold medal-winning Olympian in her former identity as Bruce, to the henpecked husband and paterfamilias of the Kardashian clan and featured player in their reality-television juggernaut, to—at age 65, when she announced her biggest secret to the world—the planet’s most famous transgender woman. (Video)The now 67-year-old Jenner, who has been a celebrity for most of her time on earth and spent the past two years as the nation’s highest-profile activist for LGBTQ
