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
Civil Society: There is no excuse for murdering innocents, and all terrorist attacks should be roundly condemned. That should be a simple proposition everyone can agree on. What isn´t so simple or agreeable is the immediate attempt to politicize this tragedy. President Trump was getting attacked — and rightly so — for issuing a mealy mouthed statement in the immediate wake of the attack by a white supremacist who plowed his car into a crowd of counter-protestors in Charlottesville, Va., killing one and injuring more than a dozen others. By Monday morning, however, Trump made an impromptu statement at the
A Telegraph reporter over the weekend shared a fake image showing President Donald Trump meeting with one of the alt-right leaders present at a white supremacist rally in Virginia. "Millennial Matt" is one of the leaders of the "Proud Boys," a far-right men´s-rights organization run by former Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes. He was also one of the participants in the pro-Nazi, pro-Confederate rally in Charlottesville, Va. that saw one counter-protester murdered and dozens injured. "Here´s a photo of @Millennial_Matt with Trump and carrying a burning torch in Charlottesville," Telegraph Middle East correspondent Raf Sanchez tweeted Saturday. "This isn´t complicated."
The son of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has threatened to take over the White House with rifles. Nicolás Maduro Guerra made the comment on Saturday following President Donald Trump´s statement that he would not rule out a U.S. military option in the South American country, CNN reports. "Venezuela is not very far away and the people are suffering, and they are dying. We have many options for Venezuela, including a possible military option if necessary," Trump told reporters in New Jersey. Since April, more than 120 people have died in anti-government protests that have turned violent as Venezuela´s socialist economy has collapsed. There
A street artist´s creative handiwork began popping up last week around Venice, Calif., home to a cluster of Google offices. Posters displayed Steve Jobs and Apple´s iconic slogan, "Think Different." Next to him: Google Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai and the words, "Not So Much." Why did Pichai´s firing of software engineer James Damore — over a 10-page internal memo critiquing Google´s diversity practices — subject the tech giant to responses ranging from concern to outright mockery? In the course of 30-plus years in crisis management, I have come to define a "crisis" as an organization´s perceived failure to live up to
There was plenty of reason to get the creeps from a new report from the Miami Herald suggesting that Venezuela´s Chavista thugs are targeting Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida for a death-squad hit. According to the Herald: One of Venezuela´s most powerful leaders may have put out an order to kill Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, a fervent critic of the South American country´s government, according to intelligence obtained by the U.S. last month. Though federal authorities couldn´t be sure at the time if the uncorroborated threat was real, they took it seriously enough that Rubio has been guarded by a
WASHINGTON – Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) said many federal employees are leaving the Environmental Protection Agency and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration over “fear” that the Trump administration is going to “suppress their viewpoints” or move them to irrelevant positions. Beyer, ranking member of the House Science, Space and Technology Subcommittee on Oversight, was asked if he would have full access to the “unfiltered” final version of the latest federal government report on climate change. The New York Times published a leaked draft of the report, which was submitted to the Trump administration for review. “The majority members of my committee may
Yvette Felarca, the Berkeley area school teacher and militant left-wing protester responsible for organizing the riot at the University of California, Berkeley in February 2017, claims that violence against the far-right is “not a crime.” Felarca, who belongs to “By Any Means Necessary,” a far-left group, is currently facing assault charges after she was caught on video assaulting a white supremacist during a July 2016 rally in Sacramento, Cali. (Video) The school teacher and her compatriots engaged in violent clashes against members of the far-right Traditional Worker’s Party, which had a permit to march in the city. The violence between
Federal authorities are investigating whether sensitive data was stolen from congressional offices by several Pakistani-American tech staffers and sold to Pakistani or Russian intelligence, knowledgeable sources say. What started out 16 months ago as a scandal involving the alleged theft of computer equipment from Congress has turned into a national-security investigation involving FBI surveillance of the suspects. Investigators now suspect that sensitive US government data — possibly including classified information — could have been compromised and may have been sold to hostile foreign governments that could use it to blackmail members of Congress or even put their lives at risk.
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
Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) has revealed that during the 2016 presidential campaign, House Speaker Paul Ryan told him and his fellow Republicans to give up on Donald Trump´s campaign and just focus their energy on keeping "President Hillary Clinton accountable." According to Ryan, the Republicans had no chance at the White House, so at the very least they should try to retain their House majority. The directive came during a conference call, Gohmert told The Daily Caller in a video interview and then confirmed again during his appearance on "Fox & Friends" Sunday. The Texas Republican, as you can imagine, was not
As the “Russian Collusion” excuse for Hillary’s loss fails for want of evidence (and common sense) as did her “misogyny” claim before it, Hillary’s pal, Governor Terry McAuliffe, obviously thought he had another keen plan to keep his party from utter ruin. Instead, he is more likely to have stirred up a whirlwind, which will sink his party even further in the voters’ eyes. Led by Charlottesville Deputy Mayor Wes Bellamy (a McAuliffe appointee to the local school board now on leave for racist, sexist, homophobic tweets, the city council narrowly approved removing a statue of Robert E. Lee from
Ten sailors are missing and five have been reported injured after the USS John S McCain was involved in a collision with a merchant vessel on Monday morning, the Navy has said. The collision between the US guided-missile destroyer and merchant vessel Alnic MC was reported at 5.24am local time. The John McCain was underway east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, on its way to a routine port visit in Singapore. It is now sailing under its own power and heading to port, the Navy said. The crew is reportedly fighting flooding in two crew berthings and an area of the ship known as the 'shaft alley'.
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
NEW YORK -- A former New York City police officer, whose claims of police corruption in the 1970s were chronicled in an Al Pacino movie, joined dozens of current and former officers Saturday at a rally in support of getting quarterback Colin Kaepernick a job in the NFL. Kaepernick, the former starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, became a controversial figure last year after he refused to stand for the national anthem in what he called a protest against oppression of people of color. He opted out of his contract in March and became a free agent, but so
WASHINGTON — Five days after President Donald Trump took office, he signed an executive order that promised a swift, sharp crackdown on illegal immigration — immediate construction of a massive border wall, quick hiring of 5,000 new Border Patrol agents and stepped-up deportation of undocumented migrants. "Beginning today, the United States of America gets back control of its borders," Trump declared at the Jan. 25 ceremony at the Department of Homeland Security, which controls federal immigration agencies. Seven months later, construction of the wall has yet to begin, the number of Border Patrol officers has actually dropped by 220
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
Trust in the mass media is at an all-time low. Two-thirds of Americans believe the mainstream press publishes fake news. Yes, there’s still much good journalism to be found, if you know where to look. Yet, ask reporters who’ve been around a while, and many will tell you that a lot of good journalism is being left unpublished. Good journalists hate what’s happening to the news. We have only ourselves to blame. Firewalls that once strictly separated news from opinion have been replaced by hopelessly blurred lines. Once-forbidden practices such as editorializing within straight news reports, and the inclusion of opinions as if
