US President Donald Trump found himself alone at the G20 summit over climate change, as the other 19 members described the Paris climate accord as ´irreversible´. German Chancellor Angela Merkel today described the US position as ´regrettable´. She told reporters at the end of the two-day meeting: ´I think it´s very clear that we could not reach consensus, but the differences were not papered over, they were clearly stated.´ Merkel said she does not agree with British Prime Minister Theresa May, who yesterday claimed Washington could decide to return to the agreement, which aims to lower emissions of greenhouse gases. Scientists believe these
President Trump saw the Paris-ite Climate Accord for exactly what it is: another completely one-sided, phony, hypocritical Barack Hussein Obama sellout, the one and only thing that the feckless and feculent fraud was ever good at.
What? No more US dollars to the UN "Green" slush fund? No wonder they are mad! Maybe the Daily Mail should play back the green complaints about the agreement when it was signed in the first place. They hated it then!
Nothing to do with climate, all to do with transfer of wealth, self-rightness and transformation of societies away from free markets and free peoples. Communism lite.
The EU did not expect Trump to win and they had themselves so far along on this concept of saving the planet and being above everyone else. They´ve gutted their societies cultures, religion, economies and religions and now they have nothing left to believe in. The fight against global warming was all about them having some sort of purpose. They lost.
History is replete with examples of those who stood alone against the "wisdom" of the time, and were ultimately proved correct.
President Trump stands with us and our best interests. That is all that counts here. He is President of the United States, not of the World. We want the US to be a good citizen of the world - not its patsy.
Deutschland uber alles - after two world wars Germany is now in control of a (mostly) united Europe that it is destroying by demanding compliance with illogical and ultimately suicidal policies. Ironic that after all the corpses Germany created the last will be itself clinging to its final fantasy until the bitter end. Pride goeth before the fall.
The Soros-funded rioters/terrorists (notice how many of the "captured " young females were actually smiling as though the whole thing was a lark) leave. They leave behind burnt streets, shells of businesses and untold destruction to the citizens of Hamburg...not bothering to even take any thing with them because they know the weapons will be provided at their next stop. Ask the citizens of Hamburg, the shop represent, the city officials if the G-20 was worth it...and if they still are for the energy accords pushed by the leaders who were wined, dined, feted and protected from any ugly realities.
This is a bit like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic as it´s taking on water below. Europe is being invaded and converted by violence to Sharia Law in THIS generation, yet the EUro-weenies are concerned about planet earth killing their great-great-...-great-grandchildren. Such forward thinkers those weenies.
The US is already cleaner than the rest of the industrialized world. When they clean up their own house and catch up, they might not sound so stupid. George Clooney just made 13 Billion on his beer deal. Maybe they should market him for a few Billion. I don´t see him, or any other rich liberals throwing their money down that rat hole of a Paris Accord!
"If everyone jumped off the roof, would you do it, too?" I can hear my mother now.
Understand that the primary purpose of the Paris accord is to hamstring the USA so that other countries can beat us. Anyone thinking that the ´other countries´ wouldn´t be for this are seriously misunderstanding what the real intent of the agreement was.
19 wolves and one well armed sheep voting on what is for dinner. The sheep voting against a mutton dinner shouldn´t be surprising, and neither should the other 19 votes for mutton.
But it is a very well armed sheep, and capable of enforcing the issue, regardless of the vote.
They all got conned by Obama. They decided to "forget" that when you make a deal with a President, and that deal is not in the form of a treaty, then you´ve made a deal with a man and not a nation... and their man is now out of office.
NAPLES, Fla. - Hurricane Irma’s leading edge bent palm trees and spit rain as it swirled toward Florida with 120 mph winds Saturday on a projected new track that could expose Tampa — not Miami — to the storm’s worst fury.

A perfect storm of climatic conditions turned Hurricane Irma into the monster that is currently wreaking havoc on the Caribbean and headed for the US mainland. Unusually warm ocean water in the Atlantic, high atmospheric pressure and weak wind shear have combined to fuel the category five tropical cyclone. Wind speeds of 250 kph were recorded as it hit land in Barbuda yesterday morning, before instruments broke. With ocean winds reaching sustained speeds of 183 mph (295 kph), this makes Irma the strongest storm to ever form over the Atlantic. For Irma to not only gain its strength but subsequently
Hurricane Irma — with its ferocious 185 mph winds — made landfall in the Caribbean early Wednesday, slamming into Barbuda and Antigua as it headed for Puerto Rico. Cuba and South Florida were still in Irma’s projected path into the weekend. The catastrophic Category 5 storm, the most powerful Atlantic storm on record, is expected to bring strong storm surges and up to 20 inches of rain in some places. Irma is moving west-northwest at 16 mph, according to the National Hurricane Center’s advisory at 5 a.m. Wednesday, with the track shifting slightly to the east. The Bahamas government has issued a hurricane warning

A Royal Navy rigid-hulled inflatable boat chased off a Spanish Guardia Civil boat in UK waters off Gibraltar. It did so after the Spanish patrol boat Rio Belelle cut across USNS Carson City as it entered Gibraltar this morning. Gibraltar Coast Watchers founder Michael J Sanchez said: ´Nothing better to ruffle Spain´s feathers that a visit of a U.S. Navy ship to Gibraltar...very irresponsible and reckless move by the Spanish vessel.´ MailOnline have contacted the Foreign & Commonwealth Office for a comment. USNS Carson City is the seventh Spearhead-class expeditionary fast transport, currently in service with the Military Sealift Command. It was launched
We were talking about the crisis in Tel Aviv, where thousands of infiltrators have taken over parts of the town, when my friend said it’s just as bad here in the United States, except that these invaders were brought here legally. “There’s more than one Linda Sarsour,” he said. “Thousands. Maybe millions.” For him – and for many others – it’s personal. Marv has two kids going back to college in a few weeks and he fears for their safety. “In my day,” he said, “the college years were the best of times.” Not so in our day. His two kids aren’t saying
President Donald Trump finally got some face time with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell after the two men hadn´t spoken for weeks. Trump hosted McConnell and other leaders of a group known as the ´big six´ to discuss tax reform. If was the first time the two men had spoken since an angry phone call where Trump reportedly complained about the Russia investigation, following McConnell´s comments to his constituents that Trump was still learning about the pace of the Democratic process. McConnell was seated at Trump´s left during the meeting, with House Speaker Paul Ryan on his right. During a June meeting, it was

Hurricane Irma, which has strengthened to a Category 4 storm, is expected to slam the Caribbean and possibly the US mainland this week.

A Democrat congressman is threatening to subpoena the White House over a draft of a letter President Donald Trump wrote regarding firing former FBI director James Comey. Adam Schiff, the ranking representative of the minority members of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said he believes there could be evidence to support that the president attempted to obstruct justice in his reasoning for Comey´s ousting. Schiff, who represents California, told CNN host Dana Bash: ´It´s probably far past time for our committee to subpoena the White House to make sure we get all relevant documents.´ The House Intelligence Committee has requested notes,
North Korea´s latest nuclear weapons test has renewed fears of a devastating electro-magnetic pulse, or EMP, attack that could wipe out electrical grids across the US. For the first time, North Korea specifically mentioned the possibility of an EMP attack on the US following Sunday´s test of a 100-kiloton weapon, which the regime claims is a thermonuclear bomb. The weapon could wipe out much of a city, but the pulse from a high-altitude blast could sow chaos and destruction far wider. North Korea´s state news agency warned that the weapon ´is a multifunctional thermonuclear nuke with great destructive power which can be detonated
Hillary Clinton, in her campaign post-mortem released Tuesday, tore into women who didn’t vote for her failed presidential candidacy in November and regretted it, saying ‘these people were looking for absolution that I just couldn’t give.” Clinton’s book, What Happened, is an angry account of how she lost to President Trump in November. Among the multitude of people/countries/events she blames for her defeat are young women who didn’t vote for her. In the book, she talks about the Women’s March in D.C. and other cities across America as “bittersweet” as it contrasted the enthusiasm of activists with the lack of
Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she would have been called a "genius" and her campaign "perfect" if she had won the 2016 presidential election. In an interview with WNYC, the former secretary of State reflected on being the first female presidential nominee of a major political party. She said that because of the hurdles women face, she would have been hailed as brilliant if she won. "I thought it was pretty revolutionary that I was the first woman to have a realistic chance of becoming president,” Clinton said. “So I don’t know how any woman who is not familiar to

ROME — As he flew near Caribbean islands devastated by Hurricane Irma on his way back to the Vatican from Colombia on Sunday, Pope Francis said that political leaders and others who denied climate change reminded him of a passage from the psalms about man’s stubbornness. “Man is stupid, the Bible said,” he said. “It’s like that, when you don’t want to see, you don’t see.” In a typically wide-ranging news conference that included his questioning of United States President Donald J.

An elderly white man was shoved to the floor and derided as a “honky motherf----r” by a black woman, who also told him to sit in the back of the East Side bus they were riding, police sources said Monday. The suspect, believed to be between 30 and 40 years old, is still being sought. The incident happened about 6:30 a.m. Sept. 3 when the 80-year-old victim got on a city bus near E. 34th St. and First Ave. and sat up front, sources said. The suspect apparently took exception to where he was sitting.
Two huge booksellers, Amazon and Walmart, have already cut the price of Hillary Rodham Clinton´s 2016 tell-all by 40 percent -- and it isn´t even available yet. Set to be released Tuesday, both have priced "What Happened?" at $17.99. Publisher Simon and Schuster set a price of $30. Much of what´s in her book has already been reported on, thanks to leaked copies of the Democratic presidential candidate´s latest work. The price cut, however, has likely helped to boost sales. It is No. 1 on Amazon.
Nearly a year after she lost the 2016 presidential election, Hillary Clinton is promoting a book about how her defeat is everyone else´s fault. So much, so familiar. What´s striking is that even though she has barely begun her book tour, Clinton has already given the game away, reverting to her self-pitying idea that half her countrymen are "irredeemable" and "deplorable." Remember that riff she got into at a 2016 private fundraiser? No? Well here it is, to freshen your recollection. You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump´s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.
Amazon has been monitoring and deleting reviews after Hillary Clinton´s new book was greeted with a torrent of criticism on the day it was released. What Happened, which covers the former Secretary of State´s unsuccessful election campaign against Donald Trump, was published on Tuesday. Clinton and her publisher Simon & Schuster claimed the book would offer a candid account of her failure and her own reflection on it. Reviews of What Happened have been mixed, with some suggesting it Clinton uses it as an opportunity to blame others – such as Bernie Sanders and Vladimir Putin – for her failure, rather than herself.
The Gold Star father who came to Indianapolis to speak about civil discourse ripped into President Donald Trump, calling him "illiterate and uneducated" on Saturday evening. In reference to Trump´s rollback of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, , Khizr Khan´s criticism came after a community conversation, "Talking Through Unity and Civility with Khizr Khan," on Saturday evening at St. Luke´s United Methodist Church. John Krull, host of "No Limits" on WFYI-FM (90.1), moderated the discussion.

During his Sunday night interview with Charlie Rose on 60 Minutes, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon finally said out loud what many of us already knew: that Hillary Clinton is “not very bright.” This was actually my favorite part of the interview because nothing is healthier for our culture than the truth, most especially a truth no one dares to speak out loud. For 25 years, Madam Clinton has been in the public eye, and for 25 years we have been told time and again and again and again two whoppers: 1) Hillary is brilliant. 2) When you get to
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney is reportedly considering a Senate run in Utah if longtime Sen. Orrin Hatch retires. UtahPolicy.com reports that sources close to Mr. Romney say he’s making preparations to run, but some say Mr. Hatch likely won’t make a decision on whether he’ll run for another term until the end of the year. It would be Mr. Hatch’s eight term in office if he decides to run again. Mr. Hatch has said in the past that he’d be willing to step aside if someone like Mr. Romney wanted to run for the seat. Mr. Romney was the GOP presidential nominee in the 2012 elections, but lost to former President Barack Obama,
Hillary Clinton’s latest book “What Happened” and her ensuing book tour are the latest examples of the former presidential candidate creating fresh tensions within the Democratic Party. What happened is not terribly complicated: Clinton lost the election to Donald Trump and weakened the Democratic Party in the process. In her book, Secretary Clinton blames her loss on the Russians, former FBI Director James Comey and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), among others, yet the only person she does not seem to blame is herself. Clinton continues to take the focus away from the party and
