Protestors Have Come Up with an Ingenious Way of Convincing Everyone to Enact the Green New Deal: Be Idiots

As I pointed out last week, when protestors act like fools, it only teaches people that they’re, well, you know.

Yet, for some mystifying reason, people seem to keep acting out in an effort to make their impossible point.

Hence, as stated by the Shut Down D.C. Strike Coalition on its official website, foolishness is a-comin’:

On September 23rd, we are going to shut down DC. We will block key infrastructure to stop business-as-usual, bringing the whole city to a gridlocked standstill.

Generally, anyone who reads that message will immediately be opposed to whatever the group’s ideological position might be.

But they don’t know that.

Therefore, as per a press release:

Shut Down D.C. agrees that to confront the climate emergency we must enact a Green New Deal, respect indigenous land and sovereignty, uphold environmental justice, protect and restore biodiversity, and implement sustainable agriculture.

Accomplished by a traffic jam?

I guess that’s what they call “progress.”

But Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Alaina Gertz calls it something else: a crime.

As reported by The Daily Caller:

Intentionally blocking traffic, as the Shut Down coalition says it will do, is “not lawful activity,” [Alaina] told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

But one Patrick Young doesn’t care. He told the Washingtonian time’s up:

“We’re way past [allowing] a reasonable amount of time [for Congress to act]. There’s a climate crisis and the serious action on climate justice is well past due. The Amazon is on fire, the icebergs are melting, there’s no time to wait.”

So the group’s gonna do something that makes everyone mad in order to win ’em over.



via GIPHY

Brace for their antics to be as successful as the Greenpeace revolutionaries who hung from a bridge last Thursday, just in time for the Democratic debates.

Here’s a smidge from that story:

I have a crazy concept for activists: When you do something really bizarre to get attention, it doesn’t help your cause.

It spreads a message alright, just not the one you intended.

Your new message is:

“We are all suffering from mental illness. Please, dear Lord, somebody — anybody — help us.”

Ahead of the city’s impending Democratic presidential primary, about a dozen activists suspended themselves from the Fred Hartman Bridge in order to fight the use of fossil fuels.

As a further means of really sockin’ it to modernity, the difference-making dingleberries held yellow and red flags.

I’d contend that the best way to bring people to your side of things is to present convincing arguments.

But I suppose some just wanna show out.

Patrick explained to the Washingtonian what the planned disturbance is all about, and he has an odd way of separating people into groups. Firstly, he believes in the 1940’s division of white and non-white. Secondly, he apparently thinks no non-whites are “working class.”

“Working class people and people of color are dealing with disruption every single day. What’s different about the 23rd is that people of power are going to deal with the disruption too.”

Well, maybe in causing a huge problem for people who are trying to get to and from work or otherwise take care of business will magically make the citizenry believe cow farts must be fought and we have to do away with planes. Even though the author of the New Green Deal herself flies.

Maybe we’ll be saved from imminent doom. After all — people have a vested interest; what’s more personal than survival?

During a practice run, protestors ignored a driver who was trying to visit his hospitalized wife.

He responded very personally:

“**** all of you!”

Good luck, world-changers.

In the meantime, they may wanna update their instructions from AOC. The former bartender did indeed claim civilization will end in 12 years. But later, she said she was just kiddin’ around:

On September 23rd, it’s SpongeFest.

How Very Big Tech-DC: Jeffrey Epstein’s Meeting with Elon Musk and Big Tech’s Elite

There are variations of a joke that have been making their way round the Internet.

A version goes something like this:

Q: What is the difference between pedophiles and Republicans?

A: Washington, D.C. and Big Tech will work with pedophiles.

We all know how both DCs Swamp Creatures and the monstrous Big Tech monsters feel about members of the GOP.

President Donald Trump is the first Republican in decades to actually take seriously the implementation of conservative policies.

And DC and Big Tech – the Swamp Elites – HATE him.

Why the Swamp Hates Trump

Washington Post’s Bezos Hates Trump

Elon Musk Is Not a Fan of Donald Trump

Leaked Video: Google Leadership’s Dismayed Reaction to Trump Election

And whenever Big Tech companies discover Republicans on their payroll – they carve them out as if they were melanoma cells.

One of the Swamp Elite’s favorite people – was Jeffrey Epstein.

You remember Jeffrey Epstein.  Epstein committed suicide in jail in August – after FINALLY getting (again) arrested after decades of sexually assaulting underage girls.

‘I’m Not a Pedophile’: Remorseless Jeffrey Epstein Said ‘Children He Raped and Assaulted Did Not Look Underage, and Claimed HE Was a Victim’ In His Final Interviews

The ‘Sex Slave’ Scandal That Exposed Pedophile Billionaire Jeffrey Epstein

Epstein sounded like a really pleasant fellow.

But Epstein was rarely alone on his escapades.

Jeffrey Epstein’s World of Wealth and Powerful Friends

And sometimes – members of DCs Swamp Elite were on board and along for the ride.

Flight Logs Show Bill Clinton Flew on Sex Offender’s Jet Much More Than Previously Known

Well that’s hardly a galloping shocker.  But….

Jeffrey Epstein Documents Could Expose Powerful Politicians

Accused Sex Trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s Political Connections: A Guide

Flight Logs Released from Jeffrey Epstein’s ‘Lolita Express’

And when it came to political coin – Epstein was like serial woman assaulter Harvey Weinstein.

Both loved lavishing lots of coin on Democrats.  Which bought both of them lots of closed eyes and turned heads – when it came to their sexual depravities.

Democrats Pressured to Return Donations from Harvey Weinstein

Billionaire Sex Offender Epstein Gave Heavily to Democrats

The Left desperately tried to tie Trump to Epstein.  Except….

Trump Banned Epstein From Mar-a-Lago Years Ago, Here’s Why…:

“‘…because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club, according to court documents….’”

You know who didn’t ban Epstein from…anything at all?  Big Tech’s Elite.

In 2011, Jeffrey Epstein Was A Known Sex Offender. The Leaders Of Amazon, Google, And Tesla Dined With Him Anyway:

“After pleading guilty to charges of soliciting prostitution from an underage girl, Jeffrey Epstein spent part of 2011 reintroducing himself to elite society.

“A March 2011 dinner with the most powerful figures in tech showed just how connected he was…..

“Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Google cofounder Sergey Brin, and others were all in town for TED, the annual conference with the slogan ‘ideas worth spreading.’  They were among friends at an annual event called the ‘billionaires’ dinner’….

“This elite dinner, and another similarly select gathering that Epstein attended later that year, were both organized by the New York literary agent John Brockman, whose exclusive intellectual club, called Edge, seems to have played a role in Epstein’s efforts to regain credibility and influence in circles of the rich and powerful.

“At the time, he was less than two years removed from finishing a 13-month prison term in a Florida state jail for soliciting prostitution from an underage girl….

“Epstein wasn’t named in the photos posted on the Edge website, but he appears in the background of a snap of Zack Bogue, a venture capitalist and husband of Marissa Mayer, then a vice president at Google….

“Other photos show the participants mingling before or after taking their seats. Also present were Bezos; Musk; Brin; Salar Kamangar, then CEO of (Google-owned) YouTube; Mayer, who the following year left Google to become CEO of Yahoo; and Anne Wojcicki, Brin’s then-wife and CEO of genetic testing startup 23andMe….

“Epstein attended a second exclusive Edge event in July 2011, held over a weekend at a winery in St. Helena, California. There, he mingled with a handful of leading scientists and several science journalists, plus wealthy power brokers including Sean Parker, former president of Facebook, and Nicholas Pritzker, a venture capitalist and former CEO of the Hyatt Development Corporation. Pritzker’s venture firm has invested in Uber, (Musk’s companies) Tesla and SpaceX and he is now on the board of vaping startup Juul Labs.”

That is a veritable Who’s Who – of Big Tech Elites.

What have we learned?

Nothing new, really – if you’ve been paying any attention at all.

Just like DCs Elite, Big Tech’s Elite will put up with a whole lot of really heinous behavior – if you keep kicking in huge coin to fund their activities.

And/or provide illegal extracurricular activities in which they can engage.

All of which begs a set of separate, specific questions: Of the Donald Trump Administration – about government-funded perpetual failure Elon Musk.

Musk owns the aforementioned SpaceX and Tesla – and SolarCity.

All three of which – have (at least) two things in common:

They have each taken billions of dollars in government money – and they are all miserable failures.

Elon Musk: The $5-Billion-Government-Money-Recipient ‘Genius’

Welfare King Elon Musk: No One Rewards Failure Like Government

Elon Musk and the Art of Failing Successfully

The Many Failures of Elon Musk, Captured in One Giant Infographic

Musk Defends Receiving $4.9 Billion in Government Support for Tesla, SolarCity and SpaceX

Heavily Subsidized and Failing: Elon Musk and SolarCity

Elon Musk, Tesla, and the Solar Roof Tile Fraud

Taxpayer Subsidies Helped Tesla Motors, So Why Does Elon Musk Slam Them?

Musk Calls Out SpaceX Rival for Receiving Billion Dollar Subsidy

Elon Musk on SpaceX: ‘I Always Thought We Would Fail’

About which Musk couldn’t care less – so long as it’s our massive money he’s losing.

If ever there was a person at the Big Tech-DC Swamp crossroads – it is Elon Musk.

Almost no one has his snout more deeply buried in the DC money trough.

Almost no one is more beloved for his many, MANY government-funded failures.

Musk is Big Tech’s biggest DC Swamp Creature.

So why hasn’t Donald Trump ejected Musk – the way he ejected Epstein?

The Trump Administration – has kept the Musk government gravy train a-rolling.

Despite Musk’s badmouthing Trump prior to the 2016 election.

Here’s Everything Elon Musk Has Ever Said About Donald Trump

Despite Musk endorsing Democrat Andrew “$1K a Month In Vote-Buying Bribes for All” Yang for 2020.

Despite ALL of this – we get:

Trump Praises Elon Musk

Vice President Mike Pence Met With Elon Musk

VP Pence’s meeting would have only made sense – if he had taken it to deliver pre-President Trump’s famous phrase:

You’re fired.”

It’s WAY past time – to FINALLY get uber-failure Welfare King Elon Musk off the government teat.

Finally! Common Ground Between Conservatives and Climate Change Goobers Is Discovered

Westlake Legal Group climate-strike-620x317 Finally! Common Ground Between Conservatives and Climate Change Goobers Is Discovered Politics new green deal Greta Thunberg Front Page Stories Featured Story environment climate strike climate alarmism Climate AOC Allow Media Exception Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Climate activist Greta Thunberg, center, joins a coalition of youth climate leaders and environmental groups during a climate strike outside the United Nations, Friday Aug. 30, 2019, in New York. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews)

So, on Friday there was a “climate strike” in front of the White House. I missed it at the time because I was “dropping some friends off at the lake” or, in Special Forces vernacular, “locking out a SEAL Team,” or something similarly vital. The key attraction in this goat rope apparently was 16-year-old Swedish climate alarmist prodigy, Greta Thunberg.

Before moving forward, let me digress here just for a second. It has become fashionable on the left to use kids as human shields for all kinds of really stupid ideas–and there was a lot of stupid, front and center, on Friday:

For instance, the viciously stupid David Hogg was given a pass by the right. Why? I don’t have a clue beyond a suspicion that it was some kind of fear that we’d be criticized for pointing out he was a buffoon. This Thunberg kid is also involved in spouting nonsense and no one is taking her on. You’ll notice that the left had no similar problems in going after Kyle Kashuv. Bottom line, kids who get involved in adult debates must be held to adult standards. Dumb ideas don’t become smarter just because you’re a know-it-all teenager. We’re done with the Children’s Crusade nonsense.

Anyway, aside from the main attraction there was this:

This has been a recurring theme with the climate alarmist goober demographic,

Our planet is going to face disaster if we don’t turn this ship around. And so it’s basically, like, there’s scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult, and it does lead, I think, young people, to have a legitimate question. Ya know, should—is it okay to still have children? Not just financially, because people are graduating with 20, 30, 100 thousand dollars of student loan debt, so they can’t even afford to have kids in the house, but also there’s just this basic moral question, like, what do we do?

In fact, you see it among many of the young kids at the “climate strike”

This may seem depressing until you realize that this is actually a political breakthrough. This is a point of agreement between we, the reality and science based community, and them, the climate alarmists and Armageddon fantasists. No. You shouldn’t have kids. You’re stupid. You’re incompetent to be parents. You’re using your kids as sockpuppets for quackery and making them feel as though they are not wanted, that they are a detriment to Gaia or whatever bullsh** you guys are worshipping this week, and that they have no future. That kind of an attitude becomes self-fulfilling. If you really believe this stuff you should definitely not have kids until there is a Green New Deal because there isn’t going to be one. Now, of course, this means that you’re going to, best case, die alone and be eaten by the cats you tried to train to be vegan. Worst case you’re going to be packed off to some kind of a warehouse staffed by like-minded nutters who believe your ancient ass is a drain on scarce resources and that you’re a prime candidate for euthanasia. You won’t get visitors. You will die alone and unmourned. And you’ll be used for compost.

Children are a blessing. They shouldn’t be drafted into adult wars. They shouldn’t learn that it is okay to interject themselves into adult conversations. Whatever problems the world has is going to be solved by having more children raised by competent parents.

So actually Friday was a very good day. We have found something with which we can agree with the climate alarmists.

‘Cause it’s the Best Way to Convince People: Ahead of the Dem Debate, Climate Change Radicals Suspend Themselves from a Bridge

I have an crazy concept for activists: When you do something really bizarre to get attention, it doesn’t help your cause.

It spreads a message alright, just not the one you intended.

Your new message is:

“We are all suffering from mental illness. Please, dear Lord, somebody — anybody — help us.”

Examples:

How To Save The Planet: During Brexit Debate, Climate Activists Glue Themselves To Parliament. Naked.

NUT: Left-Winger Fights Brexit By Stripping Naked On Live TV & Challenging Politician To Nude Debate

In An Effort To Force Congress To Save The Earth, Radicals Superglue Themselves To Walls In Washington. Yeah — That’ll Do It

See a pattern?

Pro tip: Any activism that involves glue or orifices to the south of the mouth is a FAIL (but congrats to Parliament’s anti-Brexiters for managing to combine the two — touché).

In Houston, this week’s radicals did manage to avoid adhesive and genitals, but there was still something dangling: Their whole bodies.

Those convinced the best way to sell the world on saving itself was to hang themselves from a bridge — because that’s the oldest trick in the book when it comes to winning an argument — got busy changing everyone’s minds Thursday.

Ahead of the city’s impending Democratic presidential primary, about a dozen activists suspended themselves from the Fred Hartman Bridge in order to fight the use of fossil fuels.

In order to make their point, they held yellow and red flags.

They should’ve gone with yellow and blue — those two colors make green.

Or…what’s the official flag for insanity?

Interesting choice to hang from a bridge: If the most extreme among us were to get their way, it wouldn’t be needed. People would cross the waters in row boats.

That’s not likely to happen, though — as noted by RedState’s Bonchie, CNN’s recent climate change town hall tanked:

CNN subjected television viewers to the torturous exercise of listening to 2020 Democrat candidates riff on climate change for seven straight hours. We got all kinds of craziness, from Bernie promoting taxpayer funded abortions to cull the population and reduce emissions to Buttigieg lecturing on the morality of eating hamburgers. If you want the government to control every aspect of your life, these people are your ticket.

The question is, how many people were actually watching? If you guessed that Fox News, with just their regular lineup, would nearly triple CNN’s viewership, congrats.

But maybe the Bridge Brigade will start the revolution.

Check it out in the video above. And though they aren’t nude, enjoy the drooping nuts.

If Global Warming is Eating at You, Boy Does a Swedish Professor Have a Recipe for Relief

Westlake Legal Group save-4077270_1280-620x396 If Global Warming is Eating at You, Boy Does a Swedish Professor Have a Recipe for Relief Uncategorized stockhol school of economics magnus soderlund Global Warming gastro summit Front Page Stories Featured Story environmentalism environment democrats Culture Climate Allow Media Exception

 

 

Have you ever wished you could do more to save the doomed world? Do you believe people belong to the earth, rather than the other way around?

Do you consider extreme environmentalism delicious?

Boy, have I got a diet plan for you.

At the Gastro Summit last week, Stockholm School of Economics professor Magnus Soderlund floated an idea of how to fight global climate change: You are what you eat, so just be human.

As reported by The Epoch Times, during a panel discussion titled “Can You Imagine Eating Human Flesh,” Magnus asserted we could toss away the taboos of cannibalism if only we try.

From the article by Celia Farber:

[Magnus] refers to the taboos against it as “conservative” and discusses people’s resistance to it as a problem that could be overcome, little by little, beginning with persuading people to just taste it. He can be seen in his video presentation and on Swedish channel TV4 saying that since food sources will be scarce in the future, people must be introduced to eating things they have thus far considered disgusting—among them, human flesh.

Food will be scarce?? Are we to believe dystopia will take away our beloved Vienna Fingers??

At least we’ll have each others’. And perhaps the old adage is true: Maybe planetary salvation tastes like chicken.

Don’t be offended — people eating you isn’t personal; it’s just business. Yet “business” doesn’t seem something for which Magnus has much respect: Part of his plan is to eat away at capitalism.

Conflating resistance to eating human flesh with capitalist selfishness, the seminar’s talking points ask:

“Are we humans too selfish to live sustainably?

“Is cannibalism the solution to food sustainability in the future? Does Generation Z have the answers to our food challenges? Can consumers be tricked into making the right decisions? At GastroSummit, you will get some answers to these questions—and also partake in the latest scientific findings and get to meet the leading experts.”

The author points out, however, that cannibalism can bring about disease and brain damage (I’ll leave it at that).

But Magnus is free from the unwieldy confines of a limited palette. When asked by TV4 if he’d personally give it a go, he preferred being a Flying Purple People Eater — minus the lavender wings — over coming across as a plain ol’ stick in the mud:

“I feel somewhat hesitant, but to not appear overly conservative…I’d have to say…I’d be open to at least tasting it.”

Open indeed.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has assured us all: We’ll be but a memory of the cosmos in 12 years (here). If you dare to believe we may stave off that promised fate, Magnus Soderlund’s got you covered. As well as scattered, chunked, and diced. And to get there, maybe also smothered or capped.

A Guide for Providing Donations for Bahamian Hurricane Relief

Westlake Legal Group hurricane-620x305 A Guide for Providing Donations for Bahamian Hurricane Relief Natural Disaster Miscellania International Affairs Hurricane Dorian hurricane Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donations Climate charity bahamas Allow Media Exception

It is not hyperbolic to say the island nation was ravaged by hurricane Dorian, and here is how to help.

For much of the past week we here in Florida have been under an anxious cloud with a Category-5 Hurricane Dorian literally stationed just off of our coast. As we have been spared there has been a sinking feeling in watching the storm reports as the second-strongest hurricane to ever appear in the Atlantic made a direct hit on the Bahamas and practically stopped directly atop the small island nation.

This has been a storm that has stymied hurricane experts almost from its formation and it has behaved in ways few predicted. Case in point, on August 26 prognostications had this storm dissipating through the western Caribbean and reaching Florida as a tropical depression that would make for a wet weekend. Within two days Dorian was a Cat-3 hurricane with winds over 100 miles greater than predicted.

It is with amazement that most of this state has been spared from the effects of Dorian, but on the opposite side of the spectrum the Bahamas have possibly become transformed. Neighborhoods have been rendered, many are still missing, and recovery is going to be a lengthy process as the main islands absorbed 185 miles per hour winds for a lengthy stay of a slow-moving tempest. The heartbreak on the islands can be felt already.

There was no buffer for this nation as it was hit, with the country having merely a ten-foot elevation above sea level. The fact that Nassau is situated only 70 miles from my coastline and we experienced barely noticeable weather, while this beast savaged Grand Bahama and the northern islands, is a palpable paradox for us here. These are people in need of serious assistance and there are a number of relief charities that will be working directly on those islands. Please consider helping any of these verified groups to which you can donate in the hope of lending recovery.

HEAD KNOWLES
This is a Bahamian relief group based on the islands with complete transparency of its funding. It has worked to aid the nation following storms such as Hurricane Matthew in 2016 and Hurricane Joaquin in 2015. This organization channels donations directly to aid efforts, and it offers complete reporting of funds.

Direct Donation: GoFundMe Page

HOPE FORCE INTERNATIONAL
HFI is another aid organization with experience in working in the Bahamas following prior hurricane events. They gather relief supplies and work directly with local agencies to direct the aid, goods, and services on the ground in the islands.

HFI Direct:  Bahamian Donation Page

LONG ISLAND BAHAMAS PAY IT FORWARD
Jacksonville-based travel writer Angie Orth recommends this relief outfit, operated by those on Long Island who were affected by Hurricane Juaquin. They are accepting both cash donations as well as being able to purchase relief goods through Amazon that will be shipped directly to the ravaged areas.

Direct Donation: GoFundMe Page

Amazon: Wishlist Items

LEND A HAND – BAHAMAS
A non-profit outfit registered in the U.S. collecting goods to be delivered into affected areas as directed by island partnering organizations.

Hurricane Dorian Abruptly Changes Course and That Isn’t Great News For the Climate Change Zealots

Westlake Legal Group HURRICANE-620x341 Hurricane Dorian Abruptly Changes Course and That Isn’t Great News For the Climate Change Zealots Hurricane Dorian Global Warming Front Page Stories Florida Featured Story Climate Change Climate bahamas

Friday, we were told that Hurricane Dorian would come ashore in central or north east Florida sometime Saturday. That hasn’t happened. In fact, it looks like it probably won’t happen.

Dorian is going to curb stomp parts of the Caribbean and then head north but stay at sea paralleling the US coastline.

The most recent storm track shows it paralleling the coast and dying out somewhere off North Carolina late next week.

https://twitter.com/NHC_Atlantic/status/1168549103564779520

While it sucks to be in the vicinity of the Bahamas and Turks and Caicos, we should thank our guardian angels that the storm is not going to come ashore in the United States.

Having said that, the storm generated some of the most highly-charged stupidity in recent memory. A former Canadian (naturally) prime minister was cheering for the hurricane to hit Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate (see this from Sister Toldjah). She wasn’t alone among the blue-check Twitter fellatistas who were hoping for billions of dollars in property damage and hundreds, if not thousands, of deaths to be able to get their OrangeManBad on.

And, of course, some tied it to anthropogenic global warning, the apparent religion of the less-than-bright left.

But since he said it, consider this. We know a great deal about hurricanes because they cause a large amount of property damage and loss of life. Trying to understand hurricanes has had significant interest since the 18th century when the Royal Navy  in the Caribbean would change its base of operation to Halifax, Nova Scotia, each June to avoid hurricane season. By trying to understand them, we can avoid or mitigate potentially catastrophic evens. Friday, this storm was going to hit Florida on Saturday morning. It didn’t and won’t. But the same lackwits bleating about global warming want us to believe that their models, which are wildly inaccurate even in retrospective analysis, are able to predict net changes in the earth’s temperature within a fraction of a degree some decades into the future. You really can’t have both of these things existing. If you can’t accurately forecast a highly studied and localized phenomenon you certainly can’t forecast with any accuracy macro- and micro-climate changes decades in the future.

Beware the Bern…Bernie Sanders Wants to Tax Your Meat

Perpetual presidential candidate Bernie Sanders continues his “Gimme” tour with more and more promises to steal from the poor to give to the rich.

This week, Bernie met Britta. Britta is concerned about climate change, in particular you nasty, vile carnivores out there. Britta used her one opportunity to quiz a presidential candidate to ask about…meat.

“Okay. Okay. One second while I get my question. Okay, so as you probably know, animal agriculture is to blame for the majority of climate change and is the leading cause of deforestation, water and air pollution, and biodiversity loss. With that being known, what do you plan on doing to ensure that Americans limit their consumption of animal products?”

“Climate change is the leading cause of every bad thing on the earth” is one hell of a “You probably already know”, Britta. Got any facts to back that up or are we just making assumptions? Because, as the great Samuel L. Jackson once uttered on film, “Never make assumptions. They only end up making an ass out of ‘u’ and ‘mption’”.

But Britta doesn’t stop there. She goes on to cite Germany as a shining example of who we should want to be like.

“Second part, Germany has imposed a meat tax in hopes of limiting this consumption. What are your plans to stop these large corporations from further usurping natural resources and polluting the planet?”

You may be completely shocked to learn that Bernie Sanders responded by affirming that indeed, America needs to be more like the nation that brought us Hitler, the Holocaust and the VW Bug (only one of those things is good, by the way. In case you needed some clarity).

Sanders did not say outright that a meat tax is an official policy of his platform, but he did give it the old politician shine, indicating that he would support such a notion and that also he’s interested in “helping” farmers become more “aggressive” about combatting climate change.

Yes, I’m sure farmers will be very excited for your “help” which will be tantamount to them giving up their land, their livestock and their livelihood, effectively causing a nationwide famine but hey…socialists got to socialist.

“Thank you for the question and it’s a good question. All I can say is, if we believe, as I do and you do, that climate change is real, we’re going to have to tackle it in every single area, including agriculture. Okay? And in fact, one of the things we want to do with our farmers out there is help them become more aggressive and able to help us combat climate change rather than contribute to it. So we will certainly — you’re right, we’ve got to look at agriculture, we’ve got to look at every cause of the crisis that we face.”

No word yet on if Sanders will be getting equally “aggressive” with his own multiple vacation properties.

CNN Apparently Intends To Bore Us Into Action With 7 Hour Climate Crisis Town Hall

The fires in the Amazon are still a mystery, as is their reported destructiveness, but Democrat presidential candidates can at least find one silver lining: the story of potential damage to “the lungs of the world” will no doubt justify their latest torture which comes in the form of a 7 HOUR — you read that right — televised discussion on climate change.

Ever been to a 7 hour lecture? Well now you can watch one from the comfort of your own home!

Look, I’m not trying to denigrate efforts to care for our environment and take care of our home, this wonderful little orb that is so generous with her gifts. I’m just saying Democrat candidates would rather talk — for half a day apparently — about how you can donate to the cause than get busy doing the hard work of governing on climate change (or anything else for that matter. Almost 4 years of Russia collusion nonsense and little else…)

The details of this snoozefest, per CNN, follow:

Ten Democratic presidential hopefuls will appear in New York at back-to-back town halls on Wednesday, September 4, taking audience questions about their climate plans as scientists sound the alarm about global warming.
Along with the candidates, the network also announced the CNN journalists and the approximate appearance times for the presidential hopefuls during the seven-hour, live event.
    • Former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julián Castro will be interviewed by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer at 5 p.m. ET
    • Businessman Andrew Yang, who will also be interviewed by Blitzer, will come on at 5:40 p.m.
    • California Sen. Kamala Harris will be interviewed by CNN’s Erin Burnett at 6:20 p.m.
    • Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, who will also be interviewed by Burnett, will appear at 7 p.m.
    • Former Vice President Joe Biden will be interviewed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper at 8 p.m.
    • Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, who will also be interviewed by Cooper, will be on at 8:40 p.m.
    • Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren will be interviewed by CNN’s Chris Cuomo at 9:20 p.m.
    • South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who will also be interviewed by Cuomo at 10 p.m.
    • Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke will appear with CNN’s Don Lemon at 10:40 p.m.
    • New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker will also be interviewed by Lemon and will come on at 11:20 p.m.

There is actual work being done to implement clean energy standards, some of it even in the evil oil refinery industry (but you’re not likely to hear about it next week on CNN).

One example is that of Meridian Energy, fighting to build a cutting-edge oil refinery, called The Davis Refinery, in Western North Dakota near Theodore Roosevelt National Park. As you can imagine, despite the CEO of Meridian claiming that traffic into the Park will ultimately produce more pollution than the new refinery thanks to new techniques it plans to use, the Davis Refinery is having a hell of a time getting past regulators and activists.

The Davis Refinery will produce “less pollution than the cars visiting the park,” Prentice claims. “The park generates more pollution than the Davis Refinery will.”

I can’t verify that claim, but I believe him when he says the project will move the ball down the field when it comes to cleaner use our oil and gas resources.

Unfortunately Meridian’s progress toward building it has been beset by legal and political activism from the usual suspects, so blinkered by their apocalyptic ideologies they can’t believe the path to good environmental stewardship may lay through new and improved ways to develop oil resources.

Not one but two legal challenges to the Davis Refinery are headed before the North Dakota Supreme Court.

This columnist notes that the left has begun to treat their climate alarmism as an eschatology — “An end-of-the-world doctrine shouted from the pulpits of power, not at all unlike the prophecies of rapture purported by Christian evangelicals.”

Which is more or less what you should prepare yourselves to hear if you turn on CNN at any point during the evening of September 4.

Brazil Tells G7 to Keep Their Aid Money, then Burns World Leaders by Telling Them What They Can Do With It

Westlake Legal Group 281460a8-8b0a-4a9d-bb75-4a60d090268f-620x317 Brazil Tells G7 to Keep Their Aid Money, then Burns World Leaders by Telling Them What They Can Do With It Politics Paris Notre Dame Jair Bolsonaro International Affairs g7 Front Page Stories Featured Story Emmanuel Macron donald trump Climate Brazil amazon Allow Media Exception

While the leaders at the G7 summit may have felt good about drumming up $20 million for Brazil to help fight the fires in the Amazon, Brazil is shrugging it off and adding a few choice words for these leaders to boot.

According to The Hill, Brazil representatives said that the money is “interference” and added that the language of accepting the term was too “ambiguous.” Furthermore, Brazil said it never asked for this help and it was decided without the input of Brazil at all:

According to The Hill, Brazil did tell them what they could do with that money, though, and that’s to solve their own problems:

Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro‘s chief of staff, Onyx Lorenzoni, also told Globo news website in response to the offer: “Thanks, but maybe those resources are more relevant to reforest Europe,” according to Politico.

“Macron cannot even avoid a predictable fire in a church that is part of the world’s heritage, and he wants to give us lessons for our country?” Lorenzoni added, referring to French President Emmanuel Macron and the fire at the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris earlier this year.

Ouch.

It’s not entirely clear what was in the agreement for the money, but it was seemingly insulting to Brazillian leaders if this was their reaction. The decision for the funding from the G7 council was made on Monday without both Brazil’s input and President Donald Trump, who did not attend that meeting.

Bolsonaro himself has been called the “Trump of the Tropics” after running a populist right-wing campaign. One of his goals was to open up the rainforest for business development, as Brazil’s environmental laws were “suffocating” the country according to him. He has expressed his belief that the fires were started in the Amazon by nongovernmental organizations to try to make him look bad, according to The Hill.
