The Paris Riots are a Rejection of Climate-Imposed Socialism

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

This made my eyes water up a bit. – Here is a poem Sen. Orrin Hatch wrote to George and Barbara Bush in January 2013:

For those who can’t read the handwriting, here is the text:

You are resplendent in years
and worth all the tears
as we worry
and hurry
Through each eventful day
in this great land
made greater still
by God’s firm hand
and your strong will
that searched for the better way
every day

Orrin G. Hatch

Beautiful.

Speaking of Bush 41… – All Americans should commend the late President and his family for not using this week of mourning and remembrance as an occasion for lashing out and settling of grudges, as the McCain family did a few months ago. But then, the Bushes are just a different class of people, aren’t they?

Never one to hold a grudge, Bush 41 insisted that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump be invited to attend his funeral, for the simple reason that that is the gracious and proper thing to do. You can be sure that the eulogies delivered at the service will not be filled with bitterness and potshots taken at the current President, because that is not how the Bush family has ever done things. Again, just a different class of people.

The same cannot be said for our fake news media, sadly. It is as tiresome as it was predictable that the very same media outlets – and many of the same ageing on-air personalities – who demonized George H. W. Bush while he was Vice President and President have taken the occasion of his passing to pretend to have loved him while using it as an excuse to take shots at Donald Trump.

Even Fox News is participating in this sham. I had to just turn the television off yesterday evening as Bret Baier decided it would be a great idea to spend 10 minutes letting the execrable hacks Juan Williams and Mara Liasson go on and on about how “gracious” they always thought Poppy Bush was. That’s certainly a far cry from the despicable things Williams had to say about him while he was in office serving this country.

The reality is that Bush 41, like every other Republican in modern times, had an extremely contentious relationship with the media, which was almost as fake 30 years ago as it is today. At one point in his 1988 campaign he went so far as to ban Newsweek from traveling on his campaign plane due to that particular outlet’s absurdly biased coverage of him. And who will ever forget Poppy’s on-air shouting match with then-CBS News anchor Dan Rather in January 1988?

These were not people and organizations who loved and respected George Bush then, and they only feign love and respect for him now as a cheap means of attacking the current President.

That’s a truth that we all should keep in mind as this week rolls along and the rank hypocrisy emanating from our TV screens turns increasingly putrid.

Paris Burning Watch:

What? Our fake news media misleading the public on the reasons for all the rioting? How can this be? Oh, wait, nevermind.

NBC attempted to cast the rioters’ rage as class warfare over policies that favor the rich over the poor. ABC told its viewers the riots were caused by a simple “fuel tax”. Neither network dared mention the truth about these riots, which is that they are a backlash against taxes on carbon being imposed thanks to the French government’s commitments made under the Paris Climate Accords.

And guess what? The French are not the only people who are rejecting government efforts to seize their money and property as a fool’s means of “doing something” to fight the nebulous concept of “climate change.”

One of the main reasons why Angela Merkel is stepping down as Chancellor of Germany in the coming months is because the population there has become enraged by the massively higher utility costs imposed on them by Merkel’s Energiewende initiative that attempted to transform the country’s power sector from burning coal to getting electricity from hundreds of thousands of giant windmills.

In Canada, the province of Ontario is suing to halt the imposition of a federal carbon tax that child Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is attempting to impose, a tax that threatens to destroy that country’s economy. Just a few weeks ago, the voters in Washington State resoundingly rejected the Democrat-controlled government’s attempt to impose what would have been the first statewide carbon tax in the United States.

The riots in Paris are just the latest signal that we are coming to a real inflection point in the global climate scam. The Globalist community latched onto what they first called “global warming” and later shifted to “climate change” 30 years ago as their newest rationalization for the imposition of worldwide socialism. It is no accident at all that literally every proposed “solution” to “climate change” for the last three decades involves seizing the money and property of individuals so that the ruling class can “do something” about the “problem,” a problem which constantly evolves and which they can never seem to quite describe in a way the average person can understand.

But despite their increasingly shrill and desperate efforts at brainwashing, the public has never embraced this “climate change” as an issue of major concern. In every poll taken that asks voters to list the issues they are most concerned about, “climate change” always, without exception, ranks at or near the bottom.

And in reality, the globalists don’t even buy into their own rhetoric. As I pointed out yesterday, not one single signatory nation to the Paris Accords has met its emissions reductions obligations as of this point. Not one. Most of those countries – which includes every country on earth except the United States – have in fact seen their emissions rise significantly. They don’t even buy their own BS.

So, as all the elitist globalists flew on their carbon-emitting private jets into Poland for their latest multi-million dollar climate conference boondoggle, they were faced with 30 years of frustration at their efforts to impose socialist “solutions” and a growing backlash coming from those being imposed upon. This is where things become dangerous because history tells us that when leftists become frustrated, their sense of entitlement tends to turn them violent. We have certainly seen that here in America over the last two years, with the Democrat Party basically creating the violent Antifa movement following the 2016 elections.

Make no mistake about it: A few election losses and some riots in Paris will not deter these people. They believe they basically have a “divine right” to rule, and in their minds, any means are justified by the ends.

Stay vigilant.

New Climate Report Repackages Al Gore-ism With a Government Label

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

The Climate Scam issues another convenient report filled with inconvenient untruths. –  The new big trick of the Climate Scammers is to take the rising dollar costs of major disasters in the U.S. and elsewhere and pretend that means the disasters are getting worse and more frequent through time.  Hurricane Harvey cost 10 or 20 times – whatever the number is – more than 1961’s Hurricane Carla cost, so that means it was a much worse storm.

Nevermind that, due to the time value of money, a 1961 dollar had ten times the purchasing power than a 2017 dollar.  Nevermind that the population and infrastructure buildout along the Texas Gulf Coast has multiplied several times in the intervening 56 years, Harvey cost ten times more so it was a much worse storm.  Oh, and we’re getting many more such costly storms these days, so it must be due to global warming caused by your SUVs.

It’s a neat trick, and a new report sponsored by multiple federal agencies – though mysteriously authored by well-known non-government Climate alarmists like Texas Tech’s Katherine Hayhoe – issued on Friday uses it to great effect. It’s Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” redux, a veritable climate alarmism tour de force, only without Al Gore.

It makes all the same predictions Gore’s 2006 screed predicted, only without the frightening film: Sea levels rising, bigger and more frequent hurricanes, melting polar ice caps, bigger and more frequent forest fires, lower crop yields, reduced economic output, and on and on and on.

The problem is, literally nothing Gore predicted has come true. In the 12 years since Gore’s film was released, here is what has actually taken place:

  • Global temperatures have fallen slightly;
  • The frequency of hurricanes and cyclonic events in the Western Hemisphere has fallen;
  • The frequency and magnitude of U.S. forest fires has declined dramatically;
  • The arctic polar ice cap has remained essentially unchanged while Antarctic ice has risen substantially;
  • Crop yields in the U.S. and globally have risen dramatically;
  • Sea levels have continued to rise at the same pace at which they have risen since the end of the last ice age, and there is not a damn thing Al Gore or the rest of the human race can do to stop it;
  • U.S. economic output is dramatically higher today, in real dollars, than it was in 2006.

Gore’s projections in 2006 were based on the predictions of climate models and the climate alarmists who invent and use them.  The report issued yesterday, in the midst of the coldest Thanksgiving weekend in modern times, is similarly based on the predictions of climate models and climate alarmists who invent and use them.

It’s the exact same scam in a different package with a different face. Ms. Hayhoe is the same climate alarmist who half a decade ago was assuring us that Texas was in the midst of a “permanent drought”.  Texas has experienced half a dozen 500-year flood events since that time.

The Climate Scam was invented and still exists as a tool for the promotion of global socialism. If you believe the projections of climate models rather than actual climate observations, then you believed Al Gore (and still believe him despite the fact that he was wrong about literally everything) and you will believe this latest report.

The rest of us will keep living our lives and await the issuance of the next alarmist tour de force, once the one released yesterday, like Gore’s “Inconvenient Truth”, has outlived its usefulness to the global socialist crowd.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

Oh, sure, what could possibly go wrong? – The newsfakers at CNN report that climate “scientists” at Harvard and Yale are proposing “an ingenious but as-yet-unproven way to tackle climate change: spraying sun-dimming chemicals into the Earth’s atmosphere.” I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

It just gets better…

The research by scientists at Harvard and Yale universities, published in the journal Environmental Research Letters, proposes using a technique known as stratospheric aerosol injection, which they say could cut the rate of global warming in half.
The technique would involve spraying large amounts of sulfate particles into the Earth’s lower stratosphere at altitudes as high as 12 miles. The scientists propose delivering the sulfates with specially designed high-altitude aircraft, balloons or large naval-style guns.

Mind you, these very same people remain utterly incapable of telling you what your weather is going to be 12 hours from now, but now you are supposed to just meekly sit back and smile and eat your Honey Nut Cheerios while they go about engineering the entire planet to prevent disaster projected by climate models that have unfailingly proven to be wrong.

No, thanks.

That is all.

The Church of Climate Change Adds Another Arrow to Trump’s Quiver

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

News your fake news media will pretty much ignore. –  Erik Solheim, the fake Chief of the UN’s fake environment division, resigned this week after it was revealed that he had racked up travel expenses totaling $488,518 in a span of 668 days.  The UK Guardian reports that Solheim was on the road, traveling on carbon-dioxide-spewing planes, trains and automobiles, for fully 529 of those 668 days, which has to be some sort of record.

The role of the fake agency Solheim led, “UN Environment”, is to highlight “green issues and sustainability.” Obviously, Solheim’s boss decided that his travel bills were neither green nor sustainable.

Although, I have to wonder what the big deal is here.  After all, Solheim’s travel charges pale in comparison to other leaders of the world’s largest leftist religion, i.e. the Climate Scam.

The Pope of the Church of Climate Change, Al Gore, travels all over the world in a gas-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jet, and lives in a massive home whose carbon footprint is roughly equal to that of Rhode Island. The most visible Cardinal of that false Church, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, lives and flies in similar luxury, and also owns a gasoline-powered yacht that is similar in size to a Chinese aircraft carrier. Gore and DiCaprio each rack up higher bills traveling the world in most weeks than Solheim did in his infamous 668 days, and nobody’s firing them.

And what about all these various “Climate” conferences this religious cult holds in various parts of the world 10-12 times every year? These conferences see thousands of cultists, along with the Church’s royalty, clogging air traffic and overwhelming local airport capacities with their private jets and tying up 100% of the assets of gas-and-diesel-fueled limousine services for weeks at a time.

My point is not to defend Solheim for his profligacy – paid in large part by U.S. taxpayers, by the way – but to note just how ordinary he really is when taken in context of the Climate Scam movement writ large. In a rather perverse sense, maybe that’s why the U.S. news media is studiously ignoring his story.

Hey, why are we a part of the U.N. again? – Perhaps Solheim’s story, pedestrian as it seems in the context of the Climate Scam, is relevant in another way: It does provide just one more reason for President Donald Trump (I still never tire of typing those three glorious words) to question the wisdom of the U.S. remaining a member of this despicable and depraved collection of despots, thugs and grifters from around the world. Solheim is one of the grifters, and the U.N. employs thousands of them.

The President regularly questions the utility of the U.S. remaining a part of the international body, whose main mission in recent years has been to issue resolutions condemning America’s most important ally in the Middle East, Israel.  The most recent example of this came on November 16, when the question was raised once again in the wake of the U.N.’s annual vote on a resolution condemning Israel’s settlements in the Golan Heights.

Donald Trump is going to be President for at least two more years, and most likely for another six. The despots, thugs and grifters at the U.N. just keep poking this increasingly impatient bear, and do so at their own risk.

Ocasio Cortez Watch:

 

Why do liberals hate women, Part 6,563. – In a move as predictable as the sun rising in the East, the LA County District Attorney’s office refused to bring charges against The Creepy Porn Lawyer for his alleged assault on his girlfriend a couple of weeks ago:

Thus, after more than a year of screaming “we must believe all women in these domestic abuse accusations!!!!” and the Creepy Porn Lawyer himself attempting to derail a Supreme Court nominee with false charges of rape, liberals in power demonstrate one more time that their rhetoric where protecting abused women is concerned is utterly meaningless.

Ladies, wake up.  The Democrat Party of the United States is at war with you. It just elected a woman-abusing thug to become Attorney General in Minnesota. One of its judges just ruled a law banning genital mutilation of females to be unconstitutional (think about that). That Party has been completely co-opted by radical Islamism, trans-genderism and the woman-and-child-abusing Hollywood culture.

You continue voting for its candidates at your own risk. How many more examples do you need?

That is all.

Morning Joe and Maddow Go Full Blown Deranged Over Trump/Kim Meeting

Today’s Campaign Update

(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Tired of all this Winning yet? – President Donald Trump (I never tire of typing those words) took the wonderful step on Friday of issuing a pardon to former Navy Submariner Kristian Saucier.  Saucier was persecuted (and yes, I did mean to type that word, not “prosecuted”) by the Obama Justice Department in 2016 for having taken photos of a naval nuclear guidance system with his cell phone, ultimately being sentenced to serve a year in prison during the same time Obama’s DOJ was actively helping the Pantsuit Princess avoid any punishment at all for her illegal email server, and trying to fix the general election on her behalf.

Where we know that the Coughing Crook’s email server – on which gobs of classified information was transmitted – was hacked by several hostile nations, there was no allegation at all that Mr. Saucier had shared the photos of the guidance system with anyone.

At her Friday press briefing, White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders had this to say:

“Mr. Saucier was 22 years old at the time of his offenses and has served out his 12-month sentence. He has been recognized by his fellow service members for his dedication, skill and patriotic spirit,” she said.

“While serving, he regularly mentored younger sailors and served as an instructor for new recruits. The sentencing judge found that Mr. Saucier’s offense stands in contrast to his commendable military service,” she said. “The president is appreciative of Mr. Saucier’s service to the country.”

So, yet another aspect of the pathetic, un-American Obama “legacy” has been reversed by Donald J. Trump.  That, folks, is #WINNING.

Tony Heller – who uses the pseudonym “Steve Goddard” on his Twitter account – has done a great job of documenting how Obama climate activists at NASA and NOAA have systematically created “global warming” where none has taken place in the last 20 years by going back in time to make the past appear cooler by falsifying the global temperature records.

Heller issued this tweet on Friday:

 

To which I replied:

Yes, I know I misspelled “Grapes” thanks to a recalcitrant “e” key, but you get the point.  Goddard did, too, replying with:

Can’t wait to see it.  Of course, all the snowflakes and social justice warriors will think the video is actually a documentary.

If you don’t follow Heller at his website, “The Deplorable Climate Science Blog,” you are missing out.

The Dimwits over at MSNBC went absolutely berserk in response to President Trump’s announcement that he is planning to meet with North Korea’s Crazy Little Fat Guy in the next few months to discuss the de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula.  Joe Scarborough, appealing to his demented fan base in the upper East side of Manhattan, claimed that Trump really isn’t planning to engage in negotiations with the mad little dictator.

With his disgusting mistress Mika nodding her head beside him, the former fake Republican congressman said that Trump only made the announcement to distract attention away from the media’s obsession with porn starlet Stormy Daniels, who is claiming to have had an affair with Mr. Trump a decade ago.  I swear I don’t make this stuff up.

That was MSNBC’s wisdom circa Friday morning.  On Thursday evening, it was even worse, as the very odd Rachel Maddow went on an epic rant that left The Mooch speculating she needed to “take a suppository” to get over it.  Here is just a snippet of the Madness of Maddow:

“You might think another president in this circumstance, you can imagine a president asking himself or herself, ‘why has no other American president ever agreed to do this? Why has no sitting American president ever met with a leader from North Korea? Why has that never happened in all the decades North Korea existed as a nation? Should I take that to mean that this might be particularly risky or even an unwise move?'”

“It has been through Republican and Democratic administrations, the whole strategy not only for the United States but for the United States as leader of the free world, to the extent that we are, has been to treat North Korea as a pariah state and thereby try to change their behavior.”

Of course, Maddow lacks the self-awareness to ask herself why it is that the posture taken towards North Korea by previous presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama had led directly to the incredibly dangerous situation that President Trump inherited when he assumed office last year.  She is so consumed by Trump hatred that she cannot even consider that taking the same posture vis a vis North Korea over and over again for 25 years only to achieve the same terrible result is in fact the very definition of insanity, and that possibly, just possibly, a change of direction might thus be in order.  But hey, that’s totally understandable:  She is a liberal, after all.

Just another day in Trump Derangement Syndrome America.

That is all.
