    The Trump administration will reverse course from previous Obama administration policy, eliminating climate change from a list of national security threats. The National Security Strategy to be released on Monday will emphasize the importance of balancing energy security with economic development and environmental protection, according to a source who has seen the document and shared excerpts of a late draft. “Climate policies will continue to shape the global energy system,” a draft of the National Security Strategy slated to be released on Monday said. “U.S. leadership is indispensable to countering an anti-growth, energy agenda that is detrimental to U.S. economic...

    Huffington Post ^ | December 15, 2017 | by Alexander C. Kaufman
    When Amazon kicked off a bidding war for its second North American headquarters in September, the company laid out a vision of its perfect suitor. The ideal city would have more than a million people, mass transit, an international airport, attractive housing and “stable and business-friendly” regulations. But the retail goliath apparently isn’t worried about how surging seas, extreme weather and deadly heat waves might affect its operations or the 50,000 employees it promises to hire in its new $5 billion “second home.” The company also doesn’t seem overly concerned with how much its ravenous appetite for energy and reliance...
  • THALES: Curious About Helicopterism? Let Me Explain.

    Dangerous ^ | 12/7/17 | Thales
    Helicopterism: the idea that someone who actively attempts to install a tyrannical, murderous ideology in your country is due a free, one-way helicopter ride with a destination somewhere over the Pacific. On my honor, sir, I thought commies could fly. It’s certainly more likely than the notion that Socialism could ever work. One of the great tragedies of history, in this columnist’s opinion, is that Marxism was not as thoroughly discredited as Nazism. Both are tyrannical, murderous, genocidal ideologies bent on achieving some imagined form of human perfection.

    ESPN ^ | November 30, 2017 | Jim Trotter and Jason Reid
    The NFL and a group of players reached an agreement in principle late Wednesday night to partner on a plan to address social justice issues considered important to African-American communities, ESPN has learned. The unprecedented agreement calls for the league to contribute nearly $100 million over seven years to projects dealing with criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education. During a conference call Wednesday night, Malcolm Jenkins and Anquan Boldin, who lead roughly 40 players who have negotiated with the league office about demonstrations during the national anthem, guided the group through the highlights of the package, which represents...

    Everybody has inappropriate thoughts of some kind or another. The sensible person dismisses them and does not allow them to unduly affect his life. He need not feel guilty about them. He merely needs to not act on them. Do not allow weaponized empathy to hijack your brain and make you feel guilty for bad thoughts (some of which aren’t even bad in any objective sense – they are just un-PC). Do not fall into the trap of bigotry as the Ultimate Sin ™. And certainly there is no need to submit to Progressives so that they may conduct intercession...

    Democrat Ben Jealous will pitch his plan for a state-based universal health care program next Wednesday during a Baltimore rally with U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, who has pushed a similar “Medicare for all” plan in Congress. Jealous, the former head of the NAACP who is running for governor, has promised a Maryland plan that would provide health insurance to every state resident. His campaign did not provide details Monday on how the plan would work or how to pay for it. The Jealous campaign said the plan for universal health care will build on Maryland’s all-payer system, which sets universal...

    Seattle’s controversial tax on the wealthy failed its first legal test this week after a judge ruled the new ordinance violates state law – but the city isn’t backing down and vows to appeal, setting the stage for a Washington State Supreme Court showdown. King County Superior Court Judge John Ruhl ruled in a Wednesday that Seattle did not have the authority to impose the tax because state law prohibits tax on net income. City Attorney Pete Holmes called the decision “disappointing” but, in a joint statement with Seattle Mayor Tim Burgess, said their goal to eliminate the state’s “over-reliance...

    Breakpoint ^ | 11/20/17 | Eric Metaxas, G Shane Morris
    This week marked a century since one of the darkest chapters in human history began, and a truly evil worldview was put into practice. One hundred years ago, Bolshevik revolutionaries stormed the Winter Palace in Petrograd, the seat of the Provisional Government of Russia. They also seized post offices, train stations, and telegraphs in the dead of night. When the people of Russia’s capital city awoke, they were in what Rhodes Scholar David Satter described as “a different universe.” That universe was a communist one. Vladimir Lenin’s so-called “October Revolution,” which took place in November on the Gregorian calendar, sought...

    The Atlantic ^ | November 15, 2017 | by Robinson Meyer
    There’s a wrinkle in how the United States talks about climate change in 2017, a tension fundamental to the issue’s politics but widely ignored. On one hand, Democrats are the party of climate change. Since the 1990s, as public belief in global warming has become strongly polarized, the Democratic Party has emerged as the advocate of more aggressive climate action. On the other hand, the Democratic Party does not have a plan to address climate change. This is true at almost every level of the policy-making process: It does not have a consensus bill on the issue waiting in the...

    A Peruvian farmer won a small but significant legal victory on Monday when a German court said his appeal against energy giant RWE, which he accuses of contributing to climate change that is threatening his Andean home, had merit. After hearing oral arguments from both sides, the higher regional court in the western city of Hamm said Saul Luciano Lliuya’s demand for damages from RWE was “admissible”, paving the way for the case to proceed. Luciano argues that RWE, as one of the world’s top emitters of climate-altering carbon dioxide, must share in the cost of protecting his hometown Huaraz...

    The Federalist ^ | November 1, 2017 | Joseph D'Hippolito
    Despite antiseptic portrayals throughout American media, Antifa are more than ‘anti-fascists.’ Antifa provide the violent complement to academic neo-Marxism. In the immediate aftermath of the Charlottesville violence, several prominent figures—including CNN anchor Chris Cuomo and Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of The Atlantic—equated left-wing “Antifa” activists with the thousands of Allied soldiers who stormed Normandy’s beaches to invade Adolph Hitler’s “Fortress Europe” on D-Day. A more appropriate equation would be with the thousands of soldiers in the Red Army, who brutally marched toward Berlin, where they would establish Soviet hegemony in the so-called German Democratic Republic after defeating Hitler. Antifa returns to...
  • How we can win 'the crucial third phase' of the climate war

    CNBC ^ | November 1, 2017 | Peter W. Davidson, former Energy Dept. official
    The world is in the crucial third phase of a 30-year war to combat global warming, and we can still win. The outcome will depend on this current phase and our ability to invest dramatically more money in clean and green energy quickly, thereby developing a new era of climate infrastructure. Success will depend on our capacity to invest sufficient institutional money for profit, and there's growing reason to be optimistic. The first two phases of the war have been won. Progress is being made on the third phase, but much more needs to be done. Phase One was led...

    Editor's note: The lost condemnations of communism prepared for the Second Vatican Council but later discarded and forgotten are now being made available to the public in an English translation for the first time by LifeSiteNews. The translations, by LifeSite's Matthew Cullinan Hoffman, are based on the drafts of documents contained in the official acts of the council’s preparatory commissions. The documents contain an extensive plan for a coordinated and global effort to counteract the influence of Marxism and communism worldwide and “shatter its audacity.” However, following the takeover of the council’s commissions by the ultra-liberal “Rhine group” bishops, the...
  • Americans want a tax on carbon pollution, but how to get one?

    According to a new study published by Yale, Americans are willing to pay a carbon tax that would increase their household energy bills by $15 per month, or about 15%, on average. This result is consistent with a survey from last year that also found Americans are willing to pay an average of $15 to $20 per month to combat climate change. Another recent Yale survey found that overall, 78% of registered American voters support taxing and/or regulating carbon pollution, including 67% of Republicans and 60% of conservative Republicans. This raises the question – with such broad support across the...

    In its zeal to undo the legacy of our 44th president, the Trump administration is now undoing the future of our children and grandchildren by repealing the Clean Power Plan, a policy designed to reduce the heat-trapping emissions that make our climate more and more inhospitable. It’s clear that our unstable climate is putting bigger and bigger burdens on our economy. It’s also clear that the White House is determined to remove regulations on the use of dirty fuels contributing to that unstable climate. The best answer is for Congress to pass legislation that would put the market to work...

    The hard left has always claimed the high moral ground by portraying itself as the advocate of the have-nots of the earth. The labels shift, from “proletariat” to “third world” and, more recently, the “99 percent” (no less) of the global population. With such grandeur of purpose, the radicals of the world fiercely take on their favorite evils, namely what they call the “oligarchies,” the “one percent,” and, of course, “imperialism.” Whenever and wherever a leader or political movement touting such a shibboleth takes power, the members of the hard-left, self-proclaimed revolutionaries, rally cheerfully and uncritically in support. We have...
