A tale of 2 US delegations at climate talks
ABC News, by Connor Finnegan and Stephanie Ebbs

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/14/2017 4:25:51 AM

While the world meets in Bonn, Germany, to hammer out the final details of the historic Paris climate accord and lay the path forward on combating climate change, there may be some confusion over who speaks for America. The Trump administration´s official delegation is a smaller team smaller than in past years and is led by the State Department to work on the Paris Agreement - even though the president intends to withdraw from the accord. But there´s another delegation from the U.S. at the summit — a group of elected officials, businesses, universities, and nonprofits, all of whom are committed to

Scott Pruitt isn´t there. Good for Secretary Pruitt.

The article should have said the second group comprised of elected eco-terrorist officials, businesses, universities and nonprofits all foresaw their gravy train of grants disappearing and showed up to keep their money train moving.

The next dem candidate for president will have to take a position on the rip off Paris accord.That´ll cost millions of voters right there along with abortion.Climate change will be an even less campaign issue by 2020.We´ve seen how much power Mother nature has due to to damage caused by hurricanes and fires this year alone. There´s nothing a puny human or even a group can do anything. At the same time I´m willing to do whatever to fight pollution,even giant air purifiers.

Liberals are so gullible, they´ll believe almost anything. They are easily duped into global warming and antifa. They don´t even know what fascism is, they´re just children chasing butterflies and unicorns.

Religious zealots. The original purpose of the MMGW scam was Europeans looking to hamstring the USA with a fake crisis to require restrictions on us for economic reasons. That is still the underlying reason for most countries, who are happy to find a bunch of ignorant Gaia religious zealots have climbed onto their economic train.

#2, every coal fired power plant has had "giant air purifiers" installed in their stacks for about 40 years. What you see going out of "smokestacks" from US power plants (if you see anything at all) these days is just water vapor - steam. Stacks have used electrostatic precipitators and liquid chemical scrubbers to remove the smoke particles and the gaseous sulphur compounds from the stack gases. Some places sell the scrubbed out material to make sheetrock, since it is pretty much gypsum.

Don’t Let ‘Fire And Fury’
Normalize ‘Fake But Accurate’
The Federalist, by David Harsanyi    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 1/8/2018 5:16:06     Post Reply
“Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,” Michael Wolff’s entertaining new book, is a mix of wishful falsehoods, compelling fictions, and a lot of stuff we already suspected about the White House. Even honest antagonists of Donald Trump can concede as much. But treating it too seriously not only diminishes the president — who does solid work on this front all by himself — it diminishes journalism and incentivizes reporters to sensationalize their coverage, which is already a growing problem. Even before I got my hands on “Fire and Fury,” the kind of fun book I’ve been reading with high levels

Bannon Tries Backing Away
From Explosive Comments

WASHINGTON — President Trump’s supporters moved aggressively on Sunday to counter revelations in a new book that some of his closest aides believe he is unstable and ill equipped for office, an assault that prompted the source of some of the most damning accusations, Stephen K. Bannon, to issue a striking mea culpa. The multipronged attack, punctuated by a heated appearance on a Sunday talk show by a top White House adviser who was once a close ally of Mr. Bannon, was a sign of how the White House has been reeling from the allegations. The adviser, Stephen Miller, who had been

Remember the “harmonic convergence”? It was the alignment of the planets that took place in 1987 some said was going to bring about major changes in the world. And then there was Y2K, when people hoarded canned goods and caused at least one person to take a homemade concoction that turned his skin permanently blue. Those were stupid times. But they have nothing on today. What a clown show we’ve become. The year is a week old today and already dumb enough to make me yearn for 2017. The big story this week was a book written by a guy known for

In one big week, Trump delivers for conservatives
Politico, by Danny Vinik    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 1/7/2018 5:15:05     Post Reply
President Donald Trump’s first week of 2018 was a big policy gift to his conservative base, wrapped with a bow. Most of Trump’s administration has been defined by the huge gulf between its political theatrics and its real-world impact—a reality-show White House that occupies the headlines without really driving policy, while a serious but less-heralded conservative agenda marches forward behind the scenes at federal agencies. Not this week. With three huge moves—tightening up marijuana law, opening new waters for oil-and-gas drilling, suspending aid to Pakistan—Trump handed big victories to red-meat conservatives, the kind of wins that GOP voters might have expected from

Republicans like the look of the presidential electoral map: On a county-by-county basis, the United States is a vast sea of Republican red separating two little beachheads of Democratic blue, broken by a few little blue islands with names such as Chicago and Denver. That’s a lot of red. But the blue bits? There aren’t many of them . . . but that’s where the people are. If real estate cast votes, the United States would be practically a one-party state. And, to be sure, as things stand, the Republicans are doing well, controlling the presidency and both houses of

As far as breakups go, the split between President Trump and former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon was epic. In the span of a few hours, Trump’s tweets taunting North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un over which world leader possessed the bigger nuclear button seemed as long ago as the Korean War. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job, he lost his mind," Trump said in a statement about Bannon on Wednesday, repealing and replacing the old assurances that the Breitbart chief’s departure from the White House was a mutual decision. It is quite a departure to go from

Now that Steve Bannon has carried his political jihad to its logical conclusion, martyrdom never looked so meaningless. A bright and talented man has sacrificed himself over nothing more significant than anger and vanity. Consider a recent report that Bannon was mulling the idea of running for president in 2020. Presumably that was part of his plan to elect a batch of Roy Moores, depose Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and reshape congress to match his own definition of economic nationalism. As such, Bannon’s decision to go out in a blaze of personal attacks on the president and everybody else in the White

Trump keeps his promise: Blacks and

Democratic warnings that President Trump would make life worse for minorities were discredited once again Friday, with the release of new unemployment statistics for December. In just under one year in office, the president and the Republican Congress have helped minorities make dramatic gains. Since taking the reins from President Obama, President Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress have embraced free-market and pro-liberty economic policies. Now – after a year of reducing regulations, approving a tax cut, and encouraging stricter standards for numerous welfare programs at the state level – the economy is thriving. Working-age minorities are benefitting in ways they have

On Wednesday morning, Steve Bannon and his closest advisers were preparing a statement to atone for scorched-earth comments he’d made about President Donald Trump and his eldest son Donald Trump Jr., that had been printed in Michael Wolff’s new book on the Trump White House. But before Team Bannon was able to make its statement public, the president dropped atomic tonnage on his former White House chief strategist. “Steve Bannon has nothing to do with me or my Presidency,” read Trump’s statement, which as The Daily Beast reported, he personally dictated key parts of. “When he was fired, he not only lost his job,

President Trump is on TV and in newspapers more than any human on earth, and yet Michael Wolff, based on his time gossiping, has convinced the national media that grandpa got away and is now drooling in the Oval Office. Wolff’s new book Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House repeatedly suggests that Trump is in a state of rapid cognitive decline and that all of his staff and associates know it. Wolff describes a person who repeats and rambles, doesn’t recognize reality, and is effectively illiterate. (Reminder: The book is about Trump, not Al Sharpton’s attempts to read a teleprompter.) In the book, Trump has an impossibly

The Trump administration is preparing to release guidelines soon for requiring Medicaid recipients to work, according to sources familiar with the plans, a major shift in the 50-year-old program. The guidelines will set the conditions for allowing states to add work requirements to their Medicaid programs for the first time, putting a conservative twist on the health insurance program for the poor. Democrats are gearing up for a fight, likely including lawsuits, arguing the administration is trying to undermine ObamaCare’s Medicaid expansion on its own after Congress failed to repeal the health-care law. The changes represent the

First, a few thoughts on the DOJ´s reported interest in taking another look at Hillary Clinton´s protocol-violating and national security-compromising email server, a scandal about which she lied repeatedly: (1) I´d be a bit surprised if DOJ ends up pursuing charges, as that ship likely sailed when James Comey (wrongly, in my view) chose not to recommend prosecution in July 2016. (2) I´m somewhat uncomfortable seeing the supposedly-independent Justice Department clearly bowing to incessant political pressure from the president on this subject. It´s true that President Obama telegraphed his preferred outcome

NBC network and celebrities dubbed Oprah Winfrey “our future president” following her appearance at Sunday night’s Golden Globe Awards and her speech referencing civil rights and the #MeToo campaign that highlighted rampant sexual harassment. The iconic talk show host was the subject of a joke by the award’s host Seth Meyers who taunted her to run for U.S. president. “In 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner. Jokes about how he was unqualified to be president,” Mayers said. “Some have said that night convinced him to run. So if that’s true, I

Steyer told San Francisco Bay Area public radio station KQED: ““We believed when we started this impeachment petition on Oct. 20, we felt every subsequent day would bring information that would bolster our argument that this was a dangerous, unfit president who needed to be removed from office, and from what I can tell, this book makes that case in very bold

Atlanta’s NAACP chapter said on its Facebook page that it wants fans inside the stadium for the College Football Playoff title game to wave white towels ”simulating a blizzard.” It’s one of several anti-Trump protests planned as Trump visits Atlanta on Monday night to attend the showdown between the University of Georgia and the University of Alabama.The NAACP also is urging people to hold anti-Trump

The legalization of marijuana became a hot topic in the past week. First, recreational use of the drug became legal in California at the start of 2018. Next, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced he would allow U.S. attorneys to decide whether to enforce federal laws outlawing the use and sale of pot in states that have legalized the drug. Sessions ended an Obama administration policy that discouraged federal prosecutors from enforcing federal marijuana laws in states that allow the drug’s medical or recreational use. It’s not clear yet what impact the attorney general’s action will have. As a physician, my doctoring knowledge

David Cameron thought Barack Obama was one of the ´most narcissistic, self-absorbed people´ he had ever dealt with, his former strategy guru has claimed. While in office the two leaders had a cosy bromance and were pictured high-fiving and playing rounds of golf and ping pong together. But Steve Hilton tore into Mr Obama for thinking he was ´smarter´ than everyone else in the room. And he claimed that his old boss Mr Cameron would get wound up by the ex President´s self absorption.

ALBANY – Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo thinks he has a way to end run President Trump. If the president´s federal tax overhaul plan is going to hit thousands of New Yorkers with higher tax bills, then New York will circumvent Washington by rewriting part of its complex tax code, Cuomo reasons. But it’s not so easy. The basic premise of the still-evolving state plan, vaguely unveiled during Cuomo’s State of the State speech last week, is to sharply reduce the state’s reliance on income taxes that employees pay by starting a new, statewide payroll tax that employers would pay. It’s

President Trump is spending an increasing amount of his day on social media and watching television, which his schedule has dubbed officially as ´executive time´ - and his days in the Oval Office don´t actually begin in earnest until 11 a.m. each day, a report from Axios stated. The report states that Trump´s day begins at 8 a.m., but that he conducts business from his private residence in the White House rather than the Oval Office. This compares to George W. Bush, who often began his official day in the West Wing at 6:45 a.m. In addition, Trump apparently shrunk his official
