Now We Know Why The DNC Did Not Want That Climate Change Debate

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

There’s a reason why the Democrat National Committee desperately avoided demands from fringe candidates like Washington State Gov. Jay Inslee to schedule a debate focused solely on “climate change,” and you saw that reason on CNN last night. – The simple fact of the matter is that, whether the problem is real or not, it inevitably highlights just what a bunch of nutjobs the Party is offering to the voters in this cycle.

Andrew Yang wants the government to force you to buy electric vehicles, even though the EV industry has no capability whatsoever of meeting such a demand, and forcing such a change would do nothing to address the alleged problem in any event.

Elizabeth Warren wants to ban the building of new buildings starting in 2028. No really, she does.

The Commie wants to throw everyone in the oil, gas, and coal industries in prison. Because science.

Irish Bob O’Rourke wants to wave his arms around crazily and propose to spend $5 trillion on a bunch of stuff that will do nothing to address the alleged issue, and he wants to cuss about it.

Kamala Harris wants to do this, but not this, and that, but not that, borrow this idea from Warren and that idea from Mayor Pete and another idea from AOC, and then take the other sides of those issues all at the same time. And then she wants to get into a fight with the Commie about all of it. Which is why she has fallen into Irish Bob O’Rourke territory in the latest round of polls.

Joe Biden has no clue what he wants to do other than to spend a bunch of money on stuff that doesn’t matter. So, standard operating procedure for the nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, who is exactly who Irish Bob is going to become 35 years from now.

All of them claim hurricanes have become more frequent – they haven’t. All of them claim hurricanes have become stronger – they haven’t. All of them want you to believe Dorian is the most powerful storm of all-time – it isn’t.

All of them want to blot the American landscape with millions of 500-ft. windmills that require 8 acres of land apiece and gigantic solar farms and decimate our bird populations in order to provide very high-priced energy to about 2 percent of us so that they can claim to be “doing something” about a problem none of them has any real knowledge of.

The fact of the matter is that “climate change” is a global socialist political religion. Every proposal to address “climate change” inevitably becomes a top-down, command-and-control socialist-model “solution” that would do nothing to make the climate better but do everything to command and control the lives of everyday people. Every proposal would be incredibly destructive to the national and global economy. Every proposal would effectively work to keep the 2 billion or so human beings living in squalor in 3rd world countries today living in squalor in 3rd world countries forever.

This is the dogma, the commandments of this global religion. See, the nasty secret of this religion is that its followers believe economic growth is actually evil and must be stopped. People living in squalor produce less carbon emissions than people who have decent standards of living, after all. That at least is an actual fact.

Thus, the religion’s dogma demands that any and all “solutions” have the impact of destroying economic growth and human prosperity. This is real, folks. This is what Bill McKibben, Al Gore and other Cardinals in this global church write in their books and say in their speeches. You don’t have to make this stuff up. Who could?

Such a debate could only take place on CNN, as it did last night, or some other Democrat propaganda fake news outlet to ensure that no difficult questions would ever possibly be asked. Because these politicians have no good answers to any difficult questions, such as, if “global warming” is such an emergency, why is it that NOAA can find no warming in the continental U.S. over the last 14 years?

Or how about, if the U.S. is the root of the global problem – it isn’t – explain how it is that the U.S. by far leads the world in reducing its carbon emissions, which have now fallen to levels not seen since 1985? And if oil and natural gas are such a problem, how is it that that fall in U.S. carbon emissions is mainly attributable to the increased use of natural gas in our power generation sector and in reductions in gas-powered car emissions?

And if getting back into the Paris Accords is the answer, why is it that those accords do nothing to force the real causes of rising carbon emissions – Europe, China and India – to affect reductions similar to those the U.S. has achieved?

And if command-and-control regulatory actions and confiscations are the answer, how is it that the U.S. has achieved these dramatic carbon reductions and also produced the cleanest water and air in any developed nation without resorting to such measures?

Last night’s climate change dog and pony show on CNN was global socialist nutjobbery and nitwittery at its finest. And the hilarious thing about it is that the far-left anti-development activists and lunatic politicians like AOC will all be out on their Twitter feeds this morning bashing the candidates for only resorting to half-measures and not going far enough.

All of this hooplah is taking place around an issue that always ranks at or near the very bottom when pollsters ask Americans about the issues they are really concerned about.

That, friends, is why the DNC did not want to travel down this road to begin with. Who can blame them?

That is all.

Meet Your Chief Justice: John Anthony Kennedy David Souter Roberts

Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)

Man, that global warming is wreaking havoc in California. Oh, wait… – Scientists have been recording daily temperatures in Los Angeles for 132 years.  In all that time, they have never recorded a month of February during which the mercury did not top 70 degrees Fahrenheit on at least one day.

But then 2019 came along, and the temperature in LA remained below the 70 degree level for the entire 28 days.  Can there be any doubt that the “scientists” at NOAA who have spent the last decade defrauding the historic global temperature records in order to make the modern era appear to be warming will soon issue a report claiming this February to be the “warmest on record”?

I give it maybe 30 days before that happens. The Climate Scam never ends.

Today’s Public Service Announcement: Just so no one forgets: Ralph KKK Baby-Killer Blackface Coonman Northam is still Governor of Virginia, one full month after his college photo was revealed for all to see. Thanks, Democrats!

 

Chief Justice John Anthony Kennedy David Souter Roberts strikes again. – In case you missed it, our squish Chief Justice made more moves this week to side with the liberal minority on the Supreme court:

“Roberts joined the liberals Wednesday in two rulings that left the conservatives in dissent. Most notably, he cast the deciding vote to order a new look at the mental competence of a death row inmate who says he can’t remember the crimes he committed.

The votes add to an unmistakable pattern, offering fresh indications that Roberts is in no hurry to oversee a conservative legal revolution. The chief justice has also joined 5-4 orders that blocked President Donald Trump from curbing bids for asylum at the Mexican border and stopped Louisiana from enforcing new abortion restrictions.”

Here’s my favorite part of that Bloomberg article:

“’Chief Justice Roberts’s voting pattern this year reflects a change,’ said Josh Blackman, a professor at the South Texas College of Law in Houston.”

You don’t sayyyyyy…

In reality, Roberts’ voting pattern simply reflects the pattern at-large for half of the Supreme Court justices appointed by Republican presidents going back to the great Ronald Reagan. Reagan gave us Sandra Day O’Connor and Anthony Kennedy, sandwiched around great justices in William Rehnquist and Antonin Scalia; Poppy Bush gave us the execrable closet leftist David Souter before redeeming himself with the stalwart Clarence Thomas; George W. Bush first served up Justice Roberts before trying to go even lower with the laughable nomination of Harriett Myers – who the Senate properly rejected – and then made a big comeback with the nomination of Samuel Alito.

So when you look at that history, the reality is that the three GOP presidents before Donald J. Trump batted .500 when it comes to putting strict constructionist judges onto the Supreme Court. Even Ronaldus Magnus had a hard time getting it all right, although in his defense he did first nominate Robert Bork before serving up Kennedy, after Bork was shamefully slandered by Senate Democrats.

Roberts gave us a preview of things to come nine years ago with his horrific “that fee is a tax except when I want to call it a fee for the purposes of this laughably twisted and illogical decision” Obamacare ruling. But he seems to have waited for Kennedy to be replaced by a real conservative justice before making his move to go all-in to become the squish vote on the Court.

After this week, there can be no doubt that that is exactly where his real comfort zone is, which only makes the 2020 election that much more critical for the future of our country.

President Trump needs at least one more appointment.

That is all.
