Todays Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends)
Theres 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 ORourke 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 ORourke 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 doesnt matter. So, standard operating procedure for the nations 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 havent. All of them claim hurricanes have become stronger they havent. All of them want you to believe Dorian is the most powerful storm of all-time it isnt.
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 religions 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 dont 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 isnt 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 nights 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.
the terrifying aspect of this is that anyone of these clowns would still get 50 million plus votes. the country is doomed.
If the Left would only commit mass suicide, they would do wonders to reduce their carbon load on the planet. All true believers should look to Jonestown for a model.
How many millions of miles are these morons going to fly and drive around the country while they run for their party nomination?
If they really cared about the environment they would have formed a circular firing squad last night and ended the campaign right there.
The fact of the matter is that climate change is a global socialist political religion.
Worse still, it denies the reality of a Creator, with more brains than they think possible.
It should surprise no one that Jim Jones was was adored by democrats, and a SanFran demigod.
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.
At least the Federal Reserve allows a little bit of growth.
Voters were treated to global socialist nutjobbery and nitwittery at its finest. And the hilarity is yet to come, when lunatic pols
like AOC will be Twittering like crazy, bashing the candidates for resorting to half-measures, for not going far enough.
Heaven knows lefty loon Obama played his part.
CIRCA 2017 Obama transfers $500m to Green Climate Fund to protect Paris deal last days in office;
that was Obama's SECOND $500M conned from the State Dept using executive powers; bypassing congressional support.

Barack Obama has transferred a second $500m installment from the State Dept to the Green Climate Fund just three days before he leaves office. Photograph: Evan Vucci/AP Barack Obama has heeded calls to help secure the future of the historic Paris agreement by transferring a second $500m instalment to the Green Climate Fund, just three days before he leaves office. The fund was a key aspect of the Paris agreement signed in 2015, which aims to keep global warming well below 2C and aspires to keep warming to 1.5C. Established in 2010, it is financed by wealthy countries and used to assist developing countries with adaptation and mitigation. It was widely seen as a key measure to bring both rich and poor countries to the negotiating table. The US committed to transferring $3bn to the fund. The new instalment leaves $2bn owing, with the incoming president, Donald Trump, expected to cease any further payments.
<><> Did the $billion made a short cut thru numbered accounts in a French Polynesian bank? (smirk)
The first place ex-pres Obama visited was French Polynesia ---home to offshore banks with numbered accounts.
I won’t watch either, but these knotheads have scheduled a Commie-style blatherthon at the same time as the Packers-Bears NFL kickoff game? Smooth.
Democrat solution for man-made climate change:
Take all of man’s money
Restrict man from all activity
Spend man’s money on....whatever
This will make for some dandy memes and campaign ads....
“...Democrat solution for man-made climate change:...”
You forgot the last one:
Kill all that disagree with / deny “climate change”.
Global hoax intensifies
I guess this means our military will have to convert to electric power as well or maybe solar
When the CNN TV viewer numbers for the “Climate Change Town Halls) are reported later in the day,.....no one is reporting any number right now...so they must be terrible, but even worse when you look at the fruitcake nutcases babbling on stage and the Democrat, Joe Biden “eye full of blood” incident...it is quite apparent that the Democrat Party is just about dead politically. Biden will withdraw, if he has brains at all, which I doubt.
Excellent piece - thanks for posting it up.
