  • Judge Aileen Cannon Is Quietly Sabotaging the Trump Classified Documents Case

    Slate ^ | 1/16/2024 | Dennis Aftergut and Laurence H. Tribe
    On Friday, District Judge Aileen Cannon issued a new order in the Donald Trump classified documents case adding to the mountain of evidence that she is firmly in the former president’s pocket. Trump appointed Cannon in 2020 and the Senate confirmed her appointment in the days after he lost the 2020 election. It’s deeply offensive to the rule of law for judges to bend the law to benefit those who put them on the bench. Sadly, Cannon does just that.

    A little-known judicial advocacy organization funded by left-wing nonprofits is quietly training judges nationwide on preparing for cases related to climate change, according to a Fox News Digital review. The Washington, D.C.-based Environmental Law Institute (ELI) created the Climate Judiciary Project (CJP) in 2018, establishing a first-of-its-kind resource to provide “reliable, up-to-date information” about climate change litigation, according to the group. The project’s reach has extended to various state and federal courts, including powerful appellate courts, and comes as various cities and states pursue high-profile litigation against the oil industry. “As the body of climate litigation grows, judges must consider...

    The Osage Nation won a massive ruling in Tulsa federal court on Wednesday that requires Enel to dismantle a 150-megawatt wind project it built in Osage County despite the tribe’s repeated objections. The tribe’s fight against Rome-based Enel began in 2011 and is the longest-running legal battle over wind energy in American history. As reported by Curtis Killman in the Tulsa World on Thursday, the ruling grants the United States, the Osage Nation, and Osage Minerals Council permanent injunctive relief via “ejectment of the wind turbine farm for continuing trespass.” The decision by U.S. Court of International Trade Judge Jennifer...

    “Eco-warrior” Al Gore has issued a warning to the public about what he claims will happen to Earth if humanity fails to comply with the “Net Zero” climate goals of the World Economic Forum (WEF). In a fearmongering statement, the Democrat former vice president made an apocalyptic prediction about what the world will look like if the public refuses to kneel before the green agenda of unelected foreign globalists and corporate elites. According to Gore’s latest dire threat, there will be a “billion” climate refugees crossing our borders if the public fails to “save the planet” from the so-called “climate...
  • Meta suspends accounts of US politician (Jill Stein) over criticism of Israel

    The social media accounts of two-time Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein have been suspended by Meta, which owns and controls Instagram and Facebook. Stein, who has already announced her 2024 bid for the US presidency, said on Thursday on X, formerly known as Twitter, that after refusing to help her regain access to her Instagram account, Meta disabled her new account, claiming it violated rules on "account integrity & authentic identity". Meta informed Stein on Wednesday that no one could see or find her account, and she cannot use it. Also, the US Big Tech firm decided to permanently...

    A three-year drought that has left millions of people in Syria, Iraq and Iran with little water wouldn’t have happened without human-caused climate change, a new study found. The west Asian drought, which started in July 2020, is mostly because hotter-than-normal temperatures are evaporating the little rainfall that fell, according to a flash study Wednesday by a team of international climate scientists at World Weather Attribution. It’s a case of climate change unnaturally intensifying naturally dry conditions into a humanitarian crisis that has left people thirsty, hungry and displaced, concluded the research, which has not yet undergone peer review but...

    Secretary of State John Kerry, the world's top diplomat, is warning that global warming climate change poses as much of a threat to the world as ISIS. More from The Hill: Secretary of State John Kerry said the threats posed by climate change should be addressed with as much "immediacy" as confronting the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and the Ebola outbreak. During a meeting with foreign ministers on Sunday, Kerry said global warming is creating "climate refugees." "We see people fighting over water in some places. There are huge challenges to food security and challenges to the...

    Britain's Prince Charles has pointed to the world's failure to tackle climate change as a root cause of the civil war in Syria, terrorism and the consequent refugee crisis engulfing Europe. The heir to the British throne is due to give a keynote speech at the opening of a global climate summit in Paris next week where 118 leaders will gather to try to nail down a deal to limit rising greenhouse gas emissions. "Some of us were saying 20 something years ago that if we didn't tackle these issues, you would see ever greater conflict over scarce resources and...

    A professor is blaming climate change and overpopulation for the creation of the terrorist group ISIS. Charles Strozier, Professor of History and the founding Director of the John Jay College Center on Terrorism and Kelly Berkell, research assistant at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, wrote a blog piece in the Huffington Post called “ How Climate Change Helped ISIS,” where they argue that a four-year drought in Syria, from 2006 through 2010, “devastated the livelihoods of 800,000 farmers and herders; and knocked two to three million people into extreme poverty.” "If more Americans knew how glacial melt contributes...

    Former US President Jimmy Carter tonight told the UK Parliament he wants Donald Trump to land the Republican nomination ahead of frontrunner Ted Cruz . Speaking on a visit to Britain, the 91-year-old Democrat warned Mr Cruz is committed to "Far Right-wing politics" which he would pursue "aggressively" if he makes it to the White House. By contrast, Carter said, outspoken billionaire Mr Trump has no fixed views at all. "If I had a choice of Republican nominees, between Cruz and Trump, I think I would choose. Trump - which may surprise some of you," he told an audience in...

Or, in the words of the foreign minister, "climate chaos." Kerry and Fabius made a joint appearance before their meeting, and the foreign minister warned that only 500 days remained to avoid "climate chaos"[emphasis added]...

    Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has admitted that “climate crisis” prophecies of doom are a hoax. In a major U-turn, climate alarmist Gates backtracked and confessed that “global warming” does not have apocalyptic consequences. Gates reportedly told a group of his fellow globalist green agenda advocates that the “climate doom” narrative has now become so exaggerated that the public now sees right through the charade. The admission from Gates is a major shift for the billionaire who has been a leading proponent of the “climate emergency” narrative. For years, Gates has been championing the “Net Zero” goals of the unelected bureaucratic...

    Of all the devotees to the left’s fervent cult-like religious belief in man-made climate change, perhaps none have been more annoying, and provably wrong, than former Secretary of State John Kerry — save perhaps for the climate change cult leader himself, former Vice President Al Gore. As a top official in former President Barack Obama’s administration, Kerry used his position and clout to further the narrative that human activity was causing devastating damage to the earth’s climate, so much so that drastic action needed to be taken, such as raising taxes and sacrificing freedom and liberty to the government, because...

The undated, unsigned letter "to the American people," which...

    Bodies of water all over North America are drying up as a result of drought and a decrease in precipitation, experts told ABC News. Earlier this year, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicted that the 22-year megadrought affecting the West would not only intensify but also move eastward. That prediction appears to be coming into fruition, with about 82% of the continental U.S. currently showing conditions between abnormally dry and exceptional drought, according to the U.S. Drought Monitor.+ And while the U.S. and North America continue to witness water levels dropping in crucial rivers, lakes and reservoirs, a mixture...

    Burning Man is supposed to arrive and disappear like the desert breeze. Near the end of every summer, attendees of the multiday mega-festival venture to the Nevada wilderness. Their motto: “Leave no trace.” This year, thousands got stuck in the mud instead after about a half an inch of rain hit what is normally the driest state in the nation. Instead of leaving no trace, many self-described “burners” abandoned bicycles and vehicles on the drenched, muddy Black Rock Desert. Once an underground carnival for free spirits, Burning Man today is famous as a party spot for Hollywood stars, Silicon Valley...

    The Biden administration has scheduled the president to speak later this week about global warming and “Bidenomics” in Philadelphia — all while Israel mounts a defense against Hamas in the Gaza Strip. About an hour after the White House called a “lid,” notifying the media that President Joe Biden would likely not make a public appearance on Monday, the White House sent a notice to reporters about a newly scheduled speech set to take place Friday. The speech will cover topics of global warming and “Bidenomics,” not the raging conflict on Israel’s western border with the Gaza Strip.

    ROME — Pope Francis asserted Sunday that global warming is contrary to God’s plan and presents a significant risk to all “life on earth.” “Besides war, our world is threatened by another great danger, that of the climate, which puts life on Earth, especially for the future generations, at risk,” the pontiff stated in a written text, which was read aloud by his aide Monsignor Paolo Braida following the weekly Angelus prayer. “And this is contrary to the plan of God, who created everything for life,” he added. Impelled by this apocalyptic distress, the pope said that next weekend he...
  • Donald Trump REFUSES to rule out being 'a DICTATOR': Tells Sean Hannity he may get revenge on his enemies on 'Day One' - after dodging question about abusing the law to 'go after people'

    Former President Donald Trump refused in a prime time town hall to rule out abusing power to go after his critics – saying he he wouldn't do it 'except for Day One' – when given multiple opportunities to forswear plans for vengeance or a power grab. 'To be clear, do you in any way have any plans whatsoever if reelected president to abuse power, to break the law to use the government to go after people,' Hannity asked him. 'You mean like they’re using right now?' Trump responded, without answering the question directly. (other subjects) You are promising America tonight...
