AOC Blames the California Wildfires on “Climate Change,” but the Internet Isn’t Having It

There’s a pattern with New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. A natural event happens — it doesn’t matter much what kind of event it is — and her immediate reaction is to blame it on “climate change.” It’s a knee-jerk reaction that was, frankly, worn to death by climate alarmists before her like Al Gore and Bill Nye.

On Monday, AOC sent out a tweet blaming the wildfires ravaging parts of California right now on “climate change,” stating that this is what “climate change” looks like and even throwing in a hit on the un-scientific nature of the Republicans for good measure.

Naturally, it ended with a time frame for us to fix it and a promotion of the Green New Deal.

“This is what climate change looks like,” tweeted AOC. “The GOP like to mock scientific warnings about climate change as exaggeration. But just look around: it’s already starting. We have 10 years to cut carbon emissions in half. If we don’t, scenes like this can get much worse.”

The problem with this statement is that California wildfires aren’t anything new. In fact, Capital Public Radio has a visual timeline that shows just how wildfires have hit California dating back well before the 1950s. Like any natural disaster, wildfires are worse in some years than they are others.

This picture below shows an accumulated map of wildfires that date back to 1878 all the way up to 1950.

The idea that humans are causing wildfires due to their effect on the planet is incredibly shaky.

While many of AOC’s online group of trained seals applauded and cheered her blatant attempt at agenda promotion, much of the internet wasn’t having her scaremongering.

The point made here is pretty clear. Wildfires and California go hand in hand. They have them so frequently that it’s a wonder they don’t name their sports teams after it.

Regardless, AOC’s tweet has shown us that she’s willing to stand on the ashes of people’s homes and lives in order to paint the GOP with the blame as well as pushing her pet project, which is pretty disgusting in and of itself. Your life burning down in front of you matters little. It’s all a political prop to her.

Disgusting.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) may have just set a time record for flip-flop hypocrisy.

Check what she tweeted about the Republicans fight for transparency and protesting the closed door ‘impeachment’ hearing.

“There have been many aspects of the GOP’s little flash mob that have relied on mountains of entitlement and privilege, but them *asking* the police to be arrested is just…Well, let’s just say my community would find it hard to understand why *anyone* would ask to be arrested,” she preened.

Is she kidding?

Getting arrested for the sake of a photo op is a staple of every leftist protest almost since leftist protests were invented.

We’re not sure exactly who/what she’s referencing when she says “my community” (other women from Westchester who were the daughters of architects?) but here’s a shot of her sister squad member, Rep. Rashida Tlaib, “taking the arrest” for the cause.

And let’s not forget this memorable moment, although we’re not sure it resulted in an arrest.

Valerie Jarrett, of all people chimed in, responding to AOC.

Far left/socialist community?

But just one day after Ocasio-Cortez claimed that no one would dare “ask for arrest,” she retweeted the show arrests of Ted Danson and Jane Fonda over climate change on Friday.

Fonda spoke last week how she would be protesting on Fridays and getting arrested to highlight the fight for climate change this month. Then after she solves climate change this month, she’ll leave D.C. and go home.

Danson declared himself Fonda’s new “trainee” and said that arrest “sharpens the mind.” He encouraged others to “come down and get arrested.” Because why not? It doesn’t matter that he gets arrested, but hey, why not encourage kids to get a record and possibly hurt their records and job prospects.

But guess that the show arrests of the incredibly wealthy Hollywood actors Ted Danson and Jane Fonda don’t qualify as “entitlement” and “privilege.”

Just the arrests of those fighting for transparency for the American people do.

Somethings Up: Tusli Gabbard Will Not Run For Congress Next Year

 (AP Photo/John Minchillo)

I don’t like to put on the tin foil hat often but this is a strange move to me. Presidential hopeful and non-favorite of Hillary Clinton, Tulsi Gabbard has just announced she will NOT seek reelection in her home district next year so she can focus on her Presidential campaign.

What is going on here?

According to MSN

While lagging behind in a crowded Democratic presidential field, Gabbard has gotten renewed attention lately after a heated argument with former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

The squabble seemed to give Gabbard renewed energy on the campaign trail.

Gabbard noted in her early morning announcement that the threats of war, international tensions and the threats of a new cold war convinced her she should focus on the presidential race

“I believe I can best serve the people of Hawaii and our country as your President and Commander-in-Chief,” she said in her statement.

The whole brush up with Clinton was a gift for Gabbard being it did give her renewed attention. She capitalized on it with her smack back of Clinton about her being a Russian operative while Clinton still holds the reset button she presented with the Ruskies as Obama’s Secretary of State.

Why give up a safe seat in Congress though? She is not going to be the nominee of the party.

Gabbard could be a rising star in the Democratic party as she comes across as not crazy while holding most of the same views as those who look and act crazy. Make no mistake about that. Tulsi might be more moderate on the timetable to achieve some of the horrible ideas that Bernie and Elizabeth are hashing out, but she is lockstep with the same overall goal.

If she is calculating that her announcing over a year early she is not running again for her seat will make her look more viable for the Presidential run, I personally don’t see how.

Maybe she has started off the 4th quarter raising more money than her campaign anticipated after the Hillary dust-up. Possibly she just doesn’t like being a congress critter anymore after traveling to Iowa and New Hamshire. Could it be that MSNBC wants to hire her after she drops out as a commentator on the network that currently is offering every excuse in the book for Hillary?

This is one of the stranger moves I have ever seen for someone who does not have a viable path to the nomination of her party. I have to admit I’m stumped and wondering how it unfolds.

I’m going to have the tinfoil hat on standby though just in case I need it.

New Report Reveals Climate Change Protesters Are Being Paid, May Be in Trouble Because of It

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-23-at-8.02.03-PM New Report Reveals Climate Change Protesters Are Being Paid, May Be in Trouble Because of It Paid protesters Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post Extinction Rebellion environment Climate Change climate alarmists Climate Allow Media Exception

Screenshot from this video

We’ve been bringing you some of the outrageous actions of the climate change gang, particularly Extinction Rebellion, the group that has been incredibly annoying to the general populace in London and who has flexed their ability to annoy in the United States as well.

In San Francisco, they linked hands and blocked traffic on both sides of the intersection at Gates Avenue near the University of San Francisco. Ironically, their actions were causing more carbon emissions while antagonizing commuters.

A gentleman in scrubs did not take kindly to them preventing him from getting to work. He let them know by ripping their banner out of their hands and tossing it over a fence.

Activists allegedly from the group got tossed out of a Long Beach, California In-N-Out Burger, screamed with bullhorns in the face of the poor employees and then found themselves in trouble with the police.

But now, the Daily Mail has dropped a big report on the group.

Turns out all that crazy is not free. And that could spell big trouble for them.

According to the Daily Mail, some of the Extinction Rebellion people are being paid to protest.

The Daily Mail is reporting some of the leaders have been paid up to £400 (about $515) per week to lead the protests, with payments for four months to protesters totaling more than £70,000 (about $90,053).

While most of the protesters are unpaid, many are paid according to records the Mail saw.

The records show payment requests from 168 people, enabling some people to be able to give up their other jobs and dedicate their time to the group.

Activists have been paid more than £200,000 since the start of the scheme;
The cost of the payments is increasing by ‘at least £40,000 a month’;
Activists are targeting ‘high net worth individuals’ for more funds;
They spent £5,000 on a camping tour of Europe for key members.
The revelations come as the number of activists arrested in the current XR protests approaches 1,300.

A document entitled Finance Policy And Processes seen by this newspaper in a ‘work in progress’ version states: ‘The maximum claim for volunteer living expenses is £400 a week (or £200 for someone volunteering part-time). No more should be claimed than a volunteer needs to cover basic living expenses.’

The document states that claims ‘may cover a maximum period of four weeks’, but adds: ‘Further applications may be made to cover additional periods of time.’

One of the people allegedly being paid is Tamsin Osmond, the granddaughter of a baronet, who goes by the gender-neutral pronoun Mx, instead of Mr. or Mrs.

One big problem, however, is that the group hasn’t paid any taxes and an MP has called for an investigation into the group.

‘These self-appointed, holier- than-thou guardians of the planet may think they are somehow above the law but they are not. What’s needed now is a root-and-branch investigation of how this organisation operates, starting with an immediate inquiry into its tax affairs. I shall be writing to HMRC tomorrow to demand nothing less.’

HMRC is Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs, which is responsible for collecting taxes.

Documents the Mail viewed shows that Extinction Rebellion was itself concerned about whether it might have tax issues and problems from not providing national insurance.

A document dated August 13, 2019 addresses the fear that HMRC is likely to ‘crawl all over us’ and that in ‘the worst case scenario’ the sum payable, including fines, is ‘probably in the range £150,000 to £200,000’. Plans have been drawn up to remind volunteers that they are responsible for their own tax affairs.

Publicly however, after questions were raised, they group claimed they had no concerns.

‘We have sought professional advice on financial support and expenses to volunteers. That advice is that in most cases no tax is payable and, where it is, those of us who receive financial support or expenses will be advised to declare income in our tax returns.

‘From the advice we received it doesn’t look like we’ll have a liability to HMRC. It is our aim to be free from hierarchy.’

Hopefully the tax folks come after them, big time.

But what this also shows is that these folks were not just doing this out of conviction. If you wondered how they had the ability to do this all the time, did they work? This is their work. Imagine getting paid for embarrassing yourself like this.

California Is Acting Like The Federal Government Again, Promptly Gets Sued By Trump Admin

Westlake Legal Group smokestacks-620x349 California Is Acting Like The Federal Government Again, Promptly Gets Sued By Trump Admin white house Trump administration Gavin Newsom Front Page Stories Foreign Policy Featured Story Energy Climate Canada California

The Trump administration and California under Governor Gavin Newsom are locked in a power battle, with the Golden State increasingly exercising their independence in ways that test the purview of the federal government.

The newest theater of war is a cap and trade agreement California has entered into with the Canadian province of Quebec, a system that, according to the Los Angeles Times, seeks to lower emissions by making it more economical for countries to reduce carbon emissions than pay the government for the right to pollute.

The program works by establishing an annual limit, or a cap, on nearly all of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions. California oil refineries, cement plants and other industries can meet this requirement by either lowering their emissions or buying state-auctioned permits that allow them to pollute. These permits can then be bought and sold within an open market — the “trade” part of the program.

The theory underlying the program is that as the emissions cap is lowered, companies will find it more cost effective to decarbonize rather than continue to pay for pollution permits.

The Trump administration on Wednesday sued the state saying that California’s agreement with Canada interferes in what is essentially one of the enumerated powers allotted to the federal government alone: foreign policy.

“The state of California has veered outside of its proper constitutional lane to enter into an international emissions agreement. The power to enter into such agreements is reserved to the federal government, which must be able to speak with one voice in the area of U.S. foreign policy,” said Assistant Attorney General Jeffrey Bossert Clark of the Justice Department’s Environment and Natural Resources Division. “California’s unlawful cap-and-trade agreement with Quebec undermines the President’s ability to negotiate competitive agreements with other nations, as the President sees fit.”

The Supreme Court has recognized that the interests of cities, counties and states, and the American people as a whole, requires the federal power in foreign relations to be reposed exclusively in the federal government, keeping it free from local interference.

According to the complaint, filed today in the Eastern District of California, the defendants have pursued or are attempting to pursue an independent foreign policy in the area of greenhouse gas regulation. The Constitution prohibits states from making treaties or compacts with foreign powers, yet California entered into a complex, integrated cap-and-trade program with the Canadian province of Quebec in 2013 without congressional approval.

Newsom has countered that the lawsuit is little more than a political attack, continuing what he sees as an effort to battle the state in areas such as energy, immigration, and gun laws.

“The White House is yet again continuing its political vendetta against California, our climate policies and the health of our communities,” Mr. Newsom said. “The Trump administration’s abysmal record of denying climate change and propping up big polluters makes cross-border collaboration all the more necessary.”

Administration officials see the cap and trade agreement as another attempt by California to grab power and affect federal policy while also attempting to encourage other states to follow suit.

The Department of Justice has said that the lawsuit is not a political hit job, and that the White House was not consulted before the suit was filed.

Study Finds Those Finger-Wagging Celebrity Eco-Warriors Emit 10,000 Times More CO2 Than the Average Person

Westlake Legal Group 7589ccf9-cc0c-4724-a8e6-581a3fb31596-620x317 Study Finds Those Finger-Wagging Celebrity Eco-Warriors Emit 10,000 Times More CO2 Than the Average Person study Politics Front Page Stories Featured Story environment CO2 Climate Change Climate Celebrities Allow Media Exception Activists

After weeks of being lectured and chastised by celebrities and activists about how everything you do is bad for the planet, these very same eco-warriors are going about churning out far more pollutants than you do.

According to a new study from Stefan Gossling of Lund University, celebrities emit 10,000 more CO2 than the average person, thanks in part to their jet-setting lifestyle, a bit of which is flying to and from places to preach at you about the oncoming climate crisis:

This highlights the insane disparity in carbon emissions between the rich and the poor. In 2018, an average human emitted less than five tonnes of CO₂ overall. But this hides vast differences in individual contributions. In the case of air travel – the most energy-intensive human activity, no other human activity consumes as much energy in such a short time – the global average is 115kg CO₂ per person per year. Yet the vast majority of humanity never fly. This average is created by the staggering emissions of the richest proportion of humanity. I calculated that Bill Gates, for example, causes at least 1,600 tonnes of CO₂ to be emitted into the atmosphere – and this is from flying alone.

Of course, it’s not only celebrities who are the problem. Recently published figures reveal that 1% of English residents are responsible for nearly one-fifth of all flights abroad. Nearly half (48%) of the population, meanwhile, did not take a single overseas flight in 2018.

Gossling notes that he’s done this with ten different celebrities, and calculated how much carbon they emitted by going through their social media feeds. He warns that these are just flights he found they took and may not be an accurate number as the celebrities may not even always tell us when they’re traveling somewhere:

The jet-setting habits of Bill Gates and Paris Hilton mean that they produce an astonishing 10,000 times more carbon emissions from flying than the average person. This was the conclusion of my research mining their social media accounts (tweets, Instagram and Facebook posts) as well as those of a number of other celebrities for clues as to where they were in the world over the course of 2017 and how they got there. As such, this estimate is conservative – they may well have taken more flights and not volunteered the information to their millions of followers.

While this number is staggering, it’s not surprising. We’ve watched as celebrities like Leonardo DiCaprio, Gates, and Al Gore make a show of being environmentally conscious and fighting for the planet, then turn around and hypocritically burn CO2 as they fly off into the sunset on their private jets.

In the end, the people who are leaving the largest “carbon footprint” are the people shaming you about yours.

We’ve been bringing you some of the crazy of the climate change gang, courtesy of Extinction Rebellion.

The group is an international group and we’ve brought you some of their wackiness overseas here and here.

But lest we feel left out, it should be noted that they’ve also been bothering people over here in the United States as well.

In San Francisco, they linked hands and blocked traffic on both sides of the intersection at Gates Avenue near the University of San Francisco. Ironically, their actions were causing more carbon emissions while antagonizing commuters.

A gentleman in scrubs did not take kindly to them preventing him from getting to work. He let them know by ripping their banner out of their hands and tossing it over a fence.

But now In-N-Out Burger has their own entry of having to deal with the climate crazy gang.

As you may know, the owner and heiress of the burger chain, Lynsi Snyder, isn’t shy about saying that her business is influenced by her Christian beliefs, even putting bible verses like John 3:16 on the bottom of the cups.

But they’re also know for their tasty burgers and great service, with a big focus on customer satisfaction.

That’s why they’ve become pretty darn successful, with revenue that should surpass $1 billion this year, according to my colleague Mike Ford. Plus they had an early policy of not opening stores unless they were able to do so debt-free, an idea they still try to get close to, a pretty phenomenal approach. How many businesses can say that?

But that didn’t prevent folks, allegedly from Extinction Rebellion, from targeting their restaurant on the Pacific Coast Highway in Long Beach, California.

Why protesters were targeting the restaurant is not entirely clear, although climate change folks have made meat one of their targets.

But the employees with that great customer service ethic were having none of that.

And they ushered the protesters out, even picking one up and bodily carrying him outside. Very politely.

That man was none too pleased as he screamed at the employees through a bullhorn.

When the police showed up, that’s when it really didn’t go well for the protesters.

The police were not receptive to their claims and they arrested at least one woman, as the male protesters screamed at them too. The men argued that their female companion was the one who had been assaulted, then accused the police of illegally arresting her and “cruel and unusual punishment.”

Thinking that’s the last time the group will try that at an In-N-Out Burger.

And people loved it.

Did Hillary Just Chicken Out Of An Event In D.C. With Tulsi Gabbard?

Ahh, poor Hillary. Seems that the former star to be in the Democratic party has taken so much flack from her latest boof up ( that didn’t have anything to do with Bill) she is feeling a bit off. A week in advance.

Hillary, of course, landed in some hot water last week when she said on a podcast that she thought that Tulsi Gabbard and Clinton’s 2016 opponent, Jill Stein, were propped up by the Russians. That didn’t sit well with both ladies and they let Hilly have it on twitter and in standalone interviews.

Well, this coming Friday, Hillary had the chance to hit the reset button on this at a women’s forum on something and something else and she decided to cancel. Maybe because Tulsi was also going to be there?

According to the New York Post

A face-to-face confrontation between Hillary Clinton and Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard set for next Friday was averted when Clinton backed out of the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit in Washington, DC.

Clinton aides cited a scheduling conflict when she announced her withdrawal from a speaking slot at the annual event. One insider told Slate that Clinton dropped out to protest the inclusion of former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielson on the schedule.

But Gabbard is on the bill, too — and Clinton’s pull-out came just hours after the former Secretary of State on Friday accused the Hawaii Democrat of being the “favorite of the Russians” on a podcast.

Oh, snap.

She had a prior engagement? Like what, getting her crying towel from 2016 dry cleaned? Have the house staff do it for cripes sake.

Contrary to what some people on the interwebs are speculating this is the end of Hillary. She is not secretly propping up Tulsi for a Hillary/Gabbard 2020 ticket. She is not going to try and hijack the party nomination from the sleepy former V.P. and the faux Indian. She is not secretly plotting anything at least in regard to the dumb comment she made.

This was not a strategy but stupidity. All politicians open their mouths a bit too wide sometimes. That is all this is. I will admit to being surprised that she made this error but just like athletes, politicians can get past their prime and need to go away from the game.

Will Bill & Hill still try to influence things from behind the scenes? Sure.

However, they are not the favorite former first couple right now. Democrats much prefer Barrack Obama and Michelle to anything to do with the Clintons. That “Evening with Bill And Hillary” was a pure disaster traveling the country with lousy ticket sales. They couldn’t fill those venues with people if they paid them which they practically had to do.

No one is going to listen to a two-time loser on the national stage tell ya how to get things done.

All Hillary did here gave some more free press to Gabbard and so far she has capitalized on it. She is not going to be on the national ticket though so she will have a really fun experience to recall when all this is said and done.

So chill out Clinton conspiracy buffs, you still have the Jeffery Epstein thing to chase.

Screenshot from this video

Members of the climate change group that aggravated so many in London this past week, Extinction Rebellion, were also in San Francisco bothering people there.

They were demonstrating outside of the University of San Francisco campus on Gates Avenue, holding a banner across the street and holding hands, blocking traffic going both ways and preventing people from getting by or going to work.

Needless to say, it didn’t make some folks happy. Not to mention what sense does it make to stall traffic when you claim you are fighting carbon emissions so that you make more?

Well, one guy was not happy he couldn’t get to work and he made his feelings known.

Warning for offensive language:

The man, who was wearing medical scrubs, grabbed their banner and tossed it over the fence. He then yelled at them saying he had to get to work.

Here’s another angle, showing more of what happened.

The folks who took that video watching from above cheered the man.

About nine million have already shared the first video and there isn’t a lot of sympathy for the Extinction Rebellion folks who’ve managed to tick off most people everywhere.

Twitchy caught some of the responses.

It says a lot when even in San Francisco, the climate change gang’s antics are not welcome.

Climate change poster child, Greta Thunberg, held a rally in Edmonton, Alberta. You know the drill by now. Every Friday, children throughout the world sacrifice their educations to save the planet. Thousands of students and families led by indigenous drummers joined together to march through the center of Canada’s energy heartland to protest the use of fossil fuels. The group carried signs and banners. One said, “School Strike for Climate Justice” and another said, “We are Skipping Our Lessons to Teach You One.” My personal favorite was, “Be a Better Ancestor.”

Standing on the steps in front of the provincial legislature, Thunberg spoke to the crowd. Same old schtick. She said, “We are doing this because our future is at stake. We will not be bystanders. We are doing this because we want the people in power to unite behind science.”

Her full remarks can be heard in the video at the bottom of the page if anyone is interested (although I seriously doubt it).

But a counter-protester said:

We care for the environment, of course we do. What they need to understand is that we’re hurting and we also need to care about Alberta jobs.

When they charged their iPhones last night, that power came from this plant.

Albertans and Canadians are practical people. They like real world solutions. Calling for the end of the modern industrial economy, advocating to put millions of people out of work… is not a real world solution.

According to the Daily Mail, pro-oil group United We Roll organized a convoy of oil and gas truckers to drive by and disrupt Thunberg’s protest. The group drove from the city of Red Deer to Edmonton. In the video below, a cacophony is heard as the trucks roll slowly by the event. Later, the drivers parked their vehicles and held their own protest. Some held signs that said, “We love oil and gas” or “I’m voting for pipelines this election.”

A trucker with a megaphone was heard yelling, “Everything around you is powered by oil, gas, coal.”

The video directly below shows some of the clashes which arose between the protestors and the counter-protestors. Some raised voices can be heard and there looked to be some minor pushing and shoving, but it was relatively mild. If there is a Canadian version of Antifa, they did not show up.
