    Teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg has endorsed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. “I never engage in party politics. But the upcoming US elections is above and beyond all that,” Thunberg tweeted. “From a climate perspective it’s very far from enough and many of you of course supported other candidates. But, I mean…you know…damn! Just get organized and get everyone to vote #Biden”

    “But over these last two years, the world has also emitted over 80bn tonnes of CO2. We have seen continuous natural disasters taking place across the globe. Many lives and livelihoods have been lost, and this is only the very beginning.” They said leaders were speaking of an “existential crisis”, yet “when it comes to action, we are still in a state of denial. The gap between what we need to do and what’s actually being done is widening by the minute. Effectively, we have lost another two crucial years to political inaction.”

    Natalie Maines, lead singer for the Chicks — formerly known as the “The Dixie Chicks,” says she would have a “love fest” today with former president George W. Bush because President Donald Trump makes her rethink her feelings about Bush. “You know, I joke that today, I might actually make out with George Bush,” laughed Maines on Tuesday in a virtual interview on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “Does the current president make you rethink, at all, your feelings for George W. Bush?” asked Cohen.

    An exasperated Greta Thunberg has scolded “presidents, prime ministers, kings and princesses” she claims only want to burnish their image by being photographed in her presence. As part of a new series about her campaigning made for Swedish radio during the coronavirus lockdown, Thunberg revealed the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, had waited to have a “selfie” with the teenager at a U.N. climate gathering in New York. It was in the U.N. she delivered her “how dare you” speech. “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words”, she told the gathered world leaders. On the radio...

Thunberg tweeted: “Still waiting for the EU and individual democratic nations to officially condemn the police brutality and attacks on the free press escalating the USA. For how long are we going to stand by, watch and say nothing?”

    Comedian Kathy Griffin continued to dramatize her stint at a hospital coronavirus isolation ward despite being sent home with an abdominal infection. Griffin bashed the Trump administration when she revealed she was in a hospital Wednesday but could not get tested for COVID-19 “because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions.” Though the 59-year-old entertainer showed none of the coronavirus symptoms and was sent home with a different diagnosis, she took to Twitter to claim she “still has no idea” whether she tested positive or negative for the virus.

    Last week an article from the Federalist Society about Greta Thunberg popped up on my computer. It was by David Harsanyi and titled, “The Tragedy of Greta Thunberg”. The following is the first two paragraphs of his article: “Sixteen-year-old Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg lives in the healthiest, wealthiest, safest, and most peaceful era humans have ever known. She is one of the luckiest people ever to have lived. In a just world, Thunberg would be at the United Nations thanking capitalist countries for bequeathing her this remarkable inheritance. Instead, she, like millions of other indoctrinated kids her age,...

    Greta Thunberg has warned "those in power" she will "not be silenced when the world is on fire". The teenager was welcomed by chants of "Greta, Greta" as she addressed some 15,000 people at the Bristol Youth Strike 4 Climate (BYS4C) event. She accused politicians and the media of ignoring the climate emergency and "sweeping their mess under the rug". "We are the change, and change is coming whether you like it or not," the Swedish environmentalist said. Greta was speaking at the climate strike event on College Green, before leading a march through the city. "Activism works so I'm...

    AOC pretended to be ‘journalist’ at Standing Rock protests Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez often complains about journalists — except when she’s pretending to be one. AOC admitted to getting access to press passes at the Dakota Access pipeline protests at Standing Rock Indian Reservation in a 2016 Facebook Live video. A Facebook user asked her about what media had been present. “We tried to get press passes and at the time they wouldn’t give them to us,” AOC’s friend, actress Maria Swisher, says on tape. That didn’t stop the then-bartender.

    The German city Bochum branch of the student ecology movement Fridays for Future formed by the Swedish teenage environmental activist Greta Thungberg and an organization devoted to fighting Nazism kicked the pro-BDS (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions) Marxist-Leninist Party in Germany out of their alliances due to the party's misconduct, including allegedly tearing down a placard against antisemitism. The ouster of the party that defends the terrorist organization the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine took place in late January and early February. The student ecology organization Fridays for Future, which was started by Thungberg in 2018, claimed that the Marxist-Leninists...

    Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg has been nominated for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize by two Swedish lawmakers, a report said on Monday. Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, members of Sweden’s Left Party, said the 17-year-old Thunberg “has worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis.” Her work toward “reducing our emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is therefore also an act of making peace,” they said. The Paris accord, from which President Trump withdrew in June 2017, seeks to combat the rise in global temperatures by reducing emissions. Thunberg, who has encouraged students to...
