Schwarzenegger to Sue Big
Oil for ‘First Degree Murder’

Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere

Original Article

Posted By:Hazymac, 3/12/2018 6:44:11 PM

AUSTIN, Texas — Arnold Schwarzenegger’s next mission: taking oil companies to court “for knowingly killing people all over the world.” The former California governor and global environmental activist announced the move Sunday at a live recording of POLITICO’s Off Message podcast here at the SXSW festival, revealing that he’s in talks with several private law firms and preparing a public push around the effort. “This is no different from the smoking issue. The tobacco industry knew for years and years and years and decades, that smoking would kill people, would harm people and create cancer, and were hiding that fact from the

What a stupid little man.

And if you have ever met him in person, he is a LITTLE man. Puffed up on steroids, but short and little.

And his brain is obviously diminutive as well.

How, exactly, are oil companies killing people? By providing them with energy so that they don´t freeze to death in the winter? Providing electricity so they don´t die of heat exhaustion in the summer? In cities, before the automobile, horse manure was everywhere and the particles would fill the air when dried out.

We used to hunt whales to use their oil in lamps. Before oil heaters we had coal. Before that it was all wood. What would arnie have us do, snuggle up to a solar panel or windmill in the winter, when there is no wind or sunlight?

Arnold was the second worst governor CA has ever had, the #1 is back again currently.
He governed to the right (barely) of the young Jerry Brown, but to the left of the older. current Jerry Brown.
He also was instrumental in getting Brown installed in violation of the Constitution of the state.
He duped the CA GOP into believing he was a Republican but he worked only with the Democrats while in office.

What a useless buffoon.

OIL saves lives!! We have petroleum/fossil fuels so no longer must cut down trees to stay warm and even the poorest of homes can be warm in winter thus saving many from freezing and suffering from illness. We use oil for almost all transport, train, ship, truck, jet. We use oil for many kinds of medication. We use oil for making plastics used to make products safer and more portable. Oil has saved billions of lives in one way or another and who knows how many natural places once ravaged in pursuit of scarce natural resources are now pristine because we no longer need near as much of these "natural" products... all due to oil.

As an almost-lifelong Hoosier, I´m proud to watch Mike Pence live his life a heartbeat away from the presidency. I was taken aback when Trump picked him, but if they´d flipped the ticket, I would´ve gladly voted Pence/Trump. Over the past year, Pence has won me over by showing a more presidential comportment than the actual president. As far as I´m concerned, Pence will make a fine POTUS in 4-8 years. And a lot of liberals seem to agree that it´s a done deal, because they can´t stop shrieking about how awful he is. We saw it at the Winter Olympics,

TAMPA — A veteran circus acrobat fell to his death Saturday during what he told fans was a new routine, one he was performing for the first time. "After so much work and training and staging, our straps duo act is finally in the show tonight. It’s time to go for it," Yann Arnaud, who has been with Cirque du Soleil for 15 years, wrote Saturday on Instagram. But whether it’s the first time or the hundredth time, whether they fall from great heights or lesser ones, whether it’s concrete down below or a safety net, the risk is all the same,

Investigators have determined that Pepin Academies executive director Craig Butz was at fault in the Sept. 23 boating accident that took his life. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission investigators said the crash was caused by Butz through "operator inexperience and inattention," according to a Jan. 16 accident report. Alcohol was also a contributing factor, the report said, as Butz’s blood-alcohol level was 0.156, which is almost twice the level at which Florida law presumes a driver is impaired. Butz and his family were staying at a house on Clearwater Beach the weekend of the accident, the report said. At about 4:30

Some students at Kennesaw State University outside Atlanta have filed a lawsuit against the university, and for a very good reason. They are members of the Young Americans for Freedom, and they allege they’re the victims of discriminatory treatment by the administration. The facts aren’t complicated. The group invited Katie Pavlich to visit the campus and speak, a reasonable choice given her editorship of TownHall, the right-leaning news site. But Pavlich’s profile promised to spark controversy and, hence, the need for more security. So the administration added an extra $320 in costs for the event and billed the students. YAF was

Johns Hopkins University wants to form its own police department with armed, sworn police officers to patrol its university and hospital campuses. The University already has its own security personnel, approximately 1,000 strong. Even so, last Fall there were 16 gunpoint robberies around its main campus in Baltimore. Thus, the Baltimore delegation to the state general assembly will propose legislation to enable Hopkins to have its own police department. The plan has the support of Baltimore’s police chief and its mayor. Activists and some local politicians are wary of the idea, though. So, apparently is the Washington Post. Reporters Ian Duncan and

March for Our Lives and the school walkout isn’t about gun violence; it’s about indoctrination. And there’s no age limit. Sixteen years ago, David Horowitz and the Freedom Center unveiled the Academic Bill of Rights to protect intellectual diversity on college campuses. But now the same indoctrination and intolerance urgently demand that the Freedom Center step in to protect K-12 students from political abuse. The ugly scenes from the student walkout haunt our screens as the classroom organizers of the left work to turn students into the latest anti-American protest movement after Black Lives Matter and Antifa.

Since the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, the most extraordinary things keep happening. A surge of protests forces Florida’s first small steps on gun control in 22 years. Students by the thousands stage walkouts at high schools nationwide to keep gun safety in the public mind. Momentum gathers for a huge demonstration Saturday in Washington to force action from Congress. And now arises the chance — with long odds, but a chance nonetheless — of getting a proposed amendment onto November’s ballot that would allow Floridians to place a ban on assault-style rifles in the state Constitution.

Jared Moskowitz, D-Coral Springs, called out Republicans Ron DeSantis and Adam Putnam for their stances on gun reform.

The second approach is to understand Russia´s objectives from first principles and from them evaluate each piece of information in relation to the Kremlin´s interests.

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

President Trump says he didn´t collude with Russia in 2016, promising something to a foreign country in exchange for his installation as president. That seems increasingly likely to prove true. Where they do not spring from simple malignancy, critics’ arguments that Trump used Russian intervention to win the election are mostly an excuse to avoid the plain truth that Hillary Clinton deservedly lost because she was an awful candidate. And the country is better for that result. We aren’t persuaded, either, that the Russians’ paltry $100,000 in Facebook spending had anything to do with Trump’s win, given that very little of it

Discussing cities is like talking about the knots in a net: they’re crucial, but they’re only one part of the larger story of the net and what it’s supposed to do. It makes little sense to talk about knots in isolation when it’s the net that matters. Cities are part of the system we’ve invented to keep people alive on Earth. People tend to like cities, and have been congregating in them ever since the invention of agriculture, 10,000 or so years ago. That’s why we call it civilisation. This origin story underlines how agriculture made cities possible, by providing
