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.
The National Football League´s preseason is underway, and national anthem-hating quarterback Colin Kaepernick still doesn´t have an NFL job. One can easily identify the liberal journalists by their anguish over this so-called injustice. You can also identify them by their dishonest arguments. Washington Post sports columnist Jerry Brewer pulled out a very large straw man on Aug. 17 in a column headlined "Days of Docile Black Athlete Have Ended. Get Used to It." He doubled down in the text, saying: "Sorry for the inconvenience, sports fans, but the days of the docile black athlete are over. This isn´t a time to
Health Care: In Iowa, the state´s sole remaining insurer announced on Thursday that it wants to boost ObamaCare premiums by 57%. This isn´t exactly the vibrant, competitive, low-cost market that Democrats promised. But it is the inevitable outcome of ObamaCare´s government-knows-best approach to health care. Earlier this year, Aetna and Wellmark Blue Cross & Blue Shield announced that they were pulling out of Iowa´s ObamaCare exchange, leaving only Medica, which was also threatening to leave. Not surprisingly, Medica has used its newfound monopoly status to push for increasingly higher rates, while trying to pin the blame President Trump for the
The Presidency: President Trump´s statements regarding the tragic events in Charlottesville have created a firestorm that, even by the unique Trump-era standards, appears unprecedented. Unless Trump can undo the damage, it could cripple his administration. In his presidential memoir, "Decision Points," President George W. Bush wrote about the fallout from 2015´s Hurricane Katrina and his own mishandling of the situation. In particular, he admitted that a photo taken of him flying over New Orleans was a huge mistake. "That photo of me hovering over the damage suggested I was detached from the suffering on the ground. That was not how
Who knew David Duke mattered? Cable news made the former wizard of the KKK quite visible in Charlottesville, at what planners billed as the largest gathering of the "alt-right community." The "Unite the Right" rally encouraged the like-minded to go to and demonstrate in Charlottesville, Virginia. Counter-protesters, of course, showed up, and many violent clashes ensued. When the dust settled, a woman had been killed and 19 injured when a suspect apparently intentionally drove his car into a crowd of people, although the matter remains under investigation. Two police officers died when their patrol helicopter crashed. Duke got considerable airtime in Charlottesville.
Here´s a rich one from the news: AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka has loudly announced he´s resigning from the president´s manufacturing council, to protest, of all things, violence.He´s thrown racism, too, in the mix, baselessly accusing President Trump of it, in line with his long history of race-baiting. But the doozy is his newfound sudden aversion to violence. Up until now, violence has always been his stock in trade. Get a load of Trumka´s acts and statements from the fact sheet of the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation upon his election to the AFL-CIO presidency from his previous position
Extremism: It wasn´t long ago that Americans were being told repeatedly not to overreact to Islamic terrorism, because that would only serve as a terrorist recruiting tool. That´s worth remembering now, in the wake of the white supremacist attack in Charlottesville, Va. Harsh language, bitter attacks, backlash against attacks, accusing whole groups of being in bed with terrorists, were all, we were told again and again, "just what ISIS wants." "The Islamic State wants the West to overreact," was a typical comment over the years. One commentator complained after the Manchester bombing in England this summer that saturation coverage of terrorist attacks by
Nuclear Diplomacy: With U.S. anger over North Korea´s burgeoning nuclear weapons program at a full boil, President Trump has announced the first step in what could become a trade war with China. It´s not a coincidence. To say that the U.S. is disappointed with China is an understatement. China loves access to our markets, but until recently played both sides as North Korea developed both a small nuclear bomb and the long-range missile capabilities with which to deliver it, and the U.S. tried to stop it. As we´ve noted before, Trump has explicitly linked improved ties between the U.S. and China to
Two members of the Kennedy family were arrested for disorderly conduct near the family’s famed compound on Cape Cod, according to police. Max Kennedy, the 52-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and a noise violation around 1 a.m. Sunday morning after reports of loud partying, Barnstable Police told the Boston Herald. His daughter Caroline, a 22-year-old California resident, was also arrested at a home a short walk from the main Kennedy compound. (Snip) The arrests come after a brush with the law for another of RFK’s grandchildren, Conor Kennedy, who
“There must always” be a flow low-skilled immigration to the United States, no matter its impact on American workers, according to Republican establishment figure Senator Jeff Flake (R-AZ). Flake slammed the idea of potentially cutting legal immigration levels in half to raise the wages of American workers and end the current low-skilled oriented system to make only admit immigrants based on their skills and merit in a New York Times op-ed. Senators Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue (R-GA) introduced the specific plan, known as the “RAISE Act.” President Donald Trump endorsed the plan and said the legislation “will reduce poverty, increase
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are among a set of White House aides pushing President Trump to allow illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to stay, in an effort to get Democrats to fund the president´s border wall. McClatchy reported that the group of White House officials have suggested using so-called ´Dreamers´ as a bargaining chip, in order to check off some of the president´s campaign promises on immigration, including the wall, additional detention facilities, an E-verify system for employers and cuts to legal immigration. However, such a move would break another campaign promise, as candidate Donald Trump had pledged
Missouri State Senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal hoped for the assassination of President Trump in a Facebook comment on Thursday then deleted it in a panic. She even acknowledged she would get a visit from the Secret Service for her comment. (Photo) Maria Chappelle-Nadal’s Facebook comment was so egregious that even ABC News reported on the story. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports: Missouri state Sen. Maria Chappelle-Nadal, D-University City, posted a comment in a Facebook conversation Thursday morning saying she hoped President Donald Trump will be assassinated. The comment was removed but Chappelle-Nadal confirmed to the Post-Dispatch that she had written it in
The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Sunday gave a strong endorsement to the movement for removing monuments to leaders of the Confederacy and called for the electoral college to be abolished. Speaking at the Islamic Center of Southern California, Jackson blamed the electoral college system, giving disproportionate influence to less populated states, for the 2000 and 2016 loss of Democratic presidential candidates Al Gore and Hillary Clinton despite their winning the popular vote. “Today we are looking at a structural problem,” Jackson said. “These monuments must go. Calling for the audience to repeat, he said, “Say the monuments and the flags
WASHINGTON — The Secret Service can no longer pay hundreds of agents it needs to carry out an expanded protective mission – in large part due to the sheer size of President Trump´s family and efforts necessary to secure their multiple residences up and down the East Coast. Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex´´ Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year. The agency has faced a crushing workload since the height of the contentious election season, and it
Thanks to Monday´s solar eclipse, disastrous traffic jams have been taking over the country these last few days. And as folks leave the first coast-to-coast solar eclipse since 1918, the U.S. Department of Transportation estimated that nearly two-thirds of the nation´s resident live withing a day´s drive of the path of totality. And with Oregon being the first to see the eclipse, it and neighboring state Washington are experiencing the worst bouts of the traffic jams. ´This is the biggest transportation event that has ever hit Oregon,´ Dave Thompson, a spokesman for the Oregon Department of Transportation told AP.
