Chuck Todd Melts Down When GOP Sen. Brings Up John Brennan and Democratic Meddling During 2016 Election

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) appeared on “Meet the Press” with Chuck Todd to talk about comments a U.S. diplomat made in relation to the Ukraine phone call made by President Donald Trump.

But when Johnson began to reference John Brennan and leaks from the CIA that hurt Trump as well as the allegations that Democrats solicited Ukrainian help in 2016 in order to undermine the Trump campaign, Todd had a melt down and refused to let him continue.

From Daily Caller:

“You ought to ask Director Brennan: What did Peter Strzok mean when he texted Lisa Page on Dec. 15, 2016?” Johnson began, referring to two of the former FBI officials who worked on the Trump-Russia probe.

Todd said: “Senator, what does this have to do with Ukraine?”

Johnson read from a text message that Strzok sent Page in which he speculated that the CIA was behind leaks for political reasons.

“Think our sisters have begun leaking like mad. Scorned and worried and political, they’re kicking in to overdrive,” Strzok wrote Page on Dec. 15, 2016.

Johnson then tried to bring up the alleged Democratic solicitation of info from Ukraine to undermine the Trump campaign. He referenced a Politico article that detailed the solicitation and the allegation that it worked, Paul Manafort was fired and that undermined the campaign.

Todd flipped out and called that “Fox News conspiracy propaganda,” completely ignoring that it was from Politico and that a Ukrainian court has found there was meddling. Some “conspiracy.” Yet he had no problem with spending time on what was actually a false hoax, Russia collusion.

Johnson replied that Todd’s reaction and refusal to listen is one of the reasons that people have a problem with media, because they don’t want to look at issues that can hurt the Democrats.

Instead of actually allowing Johnson to make his point, Todd said Johnson was only about trying to make Trump feel better by not being critical of him.

“Senator Johnson, please,” Todd said at one point during the contentious interview. “Can we please answer the question that I asked you instead of trying to make [President] Donald Trump feel better here that you’re not criticizing him?”

As the Daily Caller notes, Todd has a long history of turning a blind eye to many of the allegations of wrongdoing by the CIA, FBI or Democrats during the 2016 election.

U.S. Attorney John Durham is looking into what the Democrats did in terms of Ukraine and John Brennan has said that he is going to be interviewed by Durham about the origins of the Russia probe.

Protesters Storm the Supreme Court, Block the Streets, Then Surround Mitch McConnell’s House

Screenshot from this video

Here’s a good reminder why not to vote for Democrats, if anyone needed one.

What Democrats did last year to smear Justice Brett Kavanaugh to stop his confirmation was just despicable.

You saw Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) sit on an allegation until it was convenient to drop. You saw people like Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), now presidential candidates but auditioning at the time for the base, get busted spreading falsehoods in the effort.

This is some of the insanity they incited.

It didn’t matter if they smeared a good man’s name forever if they got what they wanted.

Fortunately, they failed.

But some are still trying to push the narrative.

A group of protesters stormed the Supreme Court today, blocked traffic and screamed about Kavanaugh, calling to “Impeach the mother f**ker!” Townhall’s Julio Rosas caught the action.

They spoke of Merrick Garland and had Julie Swetnick among their number. You may recall Swetnick who told the farcical story about Kavanaugh “gang rape parties,” whose story kept changing and who, along with Michael Avenatti, was referred for criminal investigation based on their actions. But these folks cheered her like she was a returning hero, saying “We believe you!”

Best way not to get people to support your cause? Prevent them from getting where they want to go.

Warning graphic language:

They then went to Sen. Mitch McConnell’s house, shouted and wrapped caution tape around it.

They don’t realize they’re the ones attacking the proper process of the courts, not McConnell.

Every time they do something like this, another Republican voter gets his wings.

This is why we vote, to make sure that these folks never get back more power.

Reasoned Moderate Maxine Waters Calls for Republicans to Stop Being ‘Spineless’ so She Can Finally Imprison Donald Trump

Maxine Waters is disgusted, mister!

When someone’s a reasonable person, and they’re going out in the world making sense and exhibiting a civil, level disposition…and suddenly they become disgusted, you need to sit up and take note — something truly horrid’s occurred.

Just like when Maxine claimed Trump was setting people up to be murdered (here).

And when Maxine insisted the President was calling for violence against her (here).

It’s moderate Maxine. You know — this chick:

That tempered lady is disgusted — by Republican senators who aren’t ready to impeach the pants off Mr. Poopie, Donald Trump.

She made that very clear Sunday on MSNBC.

Here’s what she had to say:

“The President is all about himself. Now, if you want to know something, I am disgusted with those spineless members of the Senate who don’t have the guts to stand up for this country.”

So that’s what’s happening. The weasels aren’t even patriotic:

“Many of them have defined themselves as patriotic. They’re not patriotic.”

Something “needs to be done,” and they’re chicken:

“They are spineless, and they’re not willing to step up and do what needs to be done in recognizing the danger of this president.”


Hey, congressional Republicans: Are you willing to harm the country because you’re cowards?

And they’re all, Yeah:

“They’re willing to harm our country, and so, I want all of the American population to understand who is in that Senate, what they’re doing, whether or not they want them to remain there if, in fact, they don’t come forward.”

Maxine knows what needs to be done, alright. That would be Donald John Trump arrested, convicted, and imprisoned in solitary confinement. For what crimes? There’s plenty of time to figure that out later. For now, this is all you need to know:

Maybe it’ll be via Russian collusion:

That’d be fine with MSNBC:

But for now, let’s just do what needs to be done and go ahead and imprison the President of the United States.

So has explained a wise and reasoned person.

And how do we get there?

Let’s all say it together now:

CAMP VICTORY, Iraq (July 4, 2007) – U.S. service members gather at the Al-Faw Palace for a Multi-National Force-Iraq Reenlistment, Naturalization and Independence Day Ceremony. During the ceremony 571 service members reenlisted and 161 became U.S. citizens. Sen. John McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham were among the special guests in attendance. U.S. Navy photo by Mass Communication Specialist 2nd Class Jennifer A. Villalovos (RELEASED)

My very good friend and writing mentor, former Army Sergeant, Vietnam Vet, PhD and Retired Methodist Minister, Lee Carey penned a great piece the other day over at Canadian Free Press. I do spend some time over there, not only because Sergeant/Doctor/Reverend Carey writes there, but also because the site’s raison d’etre, right up there on the masthead, boldly claims, “Because without America, there is no free world.” Who can argue with that?
In this particular piece, Dr Carey explored the Oath of Enlistment taken by those Americans who step up each and every day to write that check, “payable up to and including my life,” to keep America (and the free world) free.

I, (state name of enlistee), do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.

Lee gives a brief history of the oath, noting that “foreign and domestic” were added on 5 October 1962, during the height of the Cold War.

He goes on to write…

The “enemies” are unnamed. For while the oath is fixed in place, the enemies change over time. The leading foreign enemies of the 20th Century were clear.  The Empire of Japan. The Third Reich. Then the USSR, the Peoples’ Republic of China and the Korean War. Followed by an episode of the Cold War turned hot in Vietnam.

The domestic enemies—those inside our borders—were Soviet spies, many known to exist but identified only by their code names, particularly in the era of nuclear arms development.  Later came spies from the Peoples’ Republic of China entering America as foreign students in U.S. universities, not just searching for state secrets but for industrial secrets enabling the theft of intellectual property.

Dr. Lee’s money quote however, is right up at the top of the article, just under the masthead…

Today, the domestic enemies of the U.S. Constitution live in our midst as the Democratic Party and its allies. They put on a clown show, but we had better take them seriously. For they are not joking.

He is spot on. Lee then goes on to describe in detail two other major enemies of our republic, the Intelligence Community and the Press, finally and quite properly naming the Big Boss in all of this, the Democrat Party. It truly is a sad state of affairs when a by-the-book patriot such as Sergeant/Doctor/Reverend Lee has come to the well founded conclusion that allegedly “apolitical” entities such as our Intelligence Community and the ”Mainstream” Press, have well and truly devolved into enemies of the Constitution. Believing such about the Democrat Party? That’s not such a hard lift. Take the time to read his full article.

Dem Rep Supporting Impeachment Gets Blasted by Voters for Spreading ‘Fake News’ About Ukraine Call

Screenshot from this video.

There are 31 House districts where voters are pro-Trump and voted for him in 2016, but who also voted for Democratic candidates for the House in 2018.

People have been speculating that these Democrats will face some backlash as they go into their re-election if they support impeachment against President Donald Trump.

Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI) is one who found out how real that backlash can be when she tried to push her rationale for impeachment at a constituent event. She said that “the issue that got to me, was that the president, the most powerful man in the world, reached out to a foreigner, to a foreign leader, and asked him to dig up dirt on an American.” But voters were not buying her recasting of the call. People in the audience immediately called that out as false, “Not true,” some shouted. “Fake news,” cried someone else.

Good on CNN’s John King for reporting on it, he’s one of the few reporters at CNN who doesn’t seem married to pushing the Democratic narrative.

The problem with her statement is that it wasn’t true, as the folks in the audience who spoke correctly noted. Trump asked the president not to “dig up dirt” on an opponent but to take a look if the investigation was legitimately shut down. Big difference. Here’s the relevant part in the call:

Sounds like Slotkin is repeating the fabricated version of events pushed by her colleague, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA). But voters were having none of it, which may not bode well for her re-election.

Apparently, she has no problem with Hillary Clinton using foreign national Chris Steele to reach out for Russian info on Donald Trump or the DNC again allegedly reaching out for information to Ukrainian officials on Manafort to undermine the Trump campaign, also in 2016. U.S. Attorney John Durham is now looking into some of those questions.

CNN previously depicted Slotkin as a “badass” for daring to support impeachment, basically delivering a campaign ad for her and the other women lawmakers they were praising for going against Trump.

She also is a former CIA officer (who seem to be all over the Ukraine matter) and a former Obama administration official, as an Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Affairs.

Smoking Gun? Glenn Beck Releases Audio of Ukrainian Official Admitting He Interfered In U.S. Election to Help ‘Hillary’

Westlake Legal Group Hillary-Clinton-Bored-620x377 Smoking Gun? Glenn Beck Releases Audio of Ukrainian Official Admitting He Interfered In U.S. Election to Help ‘Hillary’ viktor yanukovych Ukraine Serhiy Leshchenko President Trump Paul Manafort Impeachment of President Trump Hillary Clinton Glenn Beck Front Page Stories Featured Story elections donald trump democrats collusion Artem Sytnyk Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power 2020

 

Glenn Beck has just released an audiotape of the former Director of the National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU), Artem Sytnyk, admitting he “helped” Hillary during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Sytnyk was convicted for election interference in December 2018 in Kiev. The court ruled that the publication of the “black ledger” documents “led to interference in the electoral processes of the United States in 2016 and harmed the interests of Ukraine as a state.”

On the tape, he tells his friends, “Kolya” and “Ivan,” that “I was in charge of the investigation of their “black accounting” records. We made the [sic] Manafort’s data available to general public.”

Note: On Aug. 19, 2016, Serhiy Leshchenko, then the acting Ukrainian Prosecutor General, held a press conference in Kiev where he revealed the “black ledger” of the Party of Regions. Leshchenko said it contained “previously secret records of payments made by the former pro-Russian president Viktor Yanukovych” to then-Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Yanukovych’s government was overthrown during the Ukrainian Revolution and he fled the country in February 2014. Leshchenko told reporters that “the information was obtained by an anonymous source in the burned-out ruins of the headquarters of Yanukoych’s party.” It’s unknown if the ledger was authentic or forged. Either way, it showed that large cash payments had been made to Paul Manafort. The revelation forced him to resign from the Trump campaign and signaled the start of his legal problems.

Beck said this tape has been floating around Ukraine for a while, but it was only recently translated into English.

Here is a transcript of the tape. Scroll down for the audiotape (Sytnyk’s conversation begins at 4:00).

Kolya: Did they, those Russians, help Trump? Your people?

Sytnyk: I think they did. Yeah. I helped him, too. Not him, but Hillary. I helped her.

Kolya: Yeah. Right. Then her position tottered, right?

Sytnyk: Well, this is how they write about it, right.

Ivan: Hillary’s humanitarian aid … [indiscernible.]

Kolya: Well, I’m about … the commentaries. At the time, we were not [indiscernible.]

Sytnyk: Trump … his purely inner problem … issue … they dominate over the external matters. While Hillary, she is — how shall I put it? She belongs to the cohort of politicians who comprise the hegemony in the US. Both in the US and the entire world, right? For us, it’s … sort of … better. For Americans … what Trump is doing is better for them.

Kolya: Well, we have lots of those American experts here now … [indiscernible.]

Sytnyk: Well, there, you see why Hillary lost the elections? I was in charge of the investigation of their “black accounting” records. We made the Manafort’s data available to general public.

Kolya: So what?

Sytnyk: He was imprisoned. Manafort then was the head of the Supreme Headquarter of Trump, right? Then he was dismissed, too, including due to the “black accounting.” After that, he was sentenced to 80 years of imprisonment term. How about Trump? Did he not give a s***. They have their system working there and it works smoothly.

Kolya: Everybody worked smoothly there.

Sytnyk: And when they carried out the elections, a week before the elections, the FBI reopened the investigation in respect of Hillary. So her rating dropped for 7 percent and that’s why Trump managed to win the elections at a pinch.
I’m still unable to understand why he’s fighting with the FBI. They try to catch him on the hand. If it were not the FBI, he would not have won the elections. They torpedoed Hillary’s ratings for 7 percent.

Glenn says, “So here he is. He is admitting to tampering with our elections. Admitted working with the Hillary Clinton campaign. He is actually convicted in the highest court in the land in Ukraine. This is all front page news, in Ukraine, while we are saying, ‘Was there anyone tampering with the election?’”

At the beginning of the podcast, Glenn reads an email written by Alexandra Chalupa , a Ukrainian-American lawyer and DNC contractor, sent to Louise Miranda at the DNC. Chalupa had been working feverishly to bring down Paul Manafort in 2016. This email is not new. Dan Bongino wrote about it in his book, “Spygate,” which was published last fall. I have posted about it. Chalupa writes:

Hey, a lot coming down the pipe. I spoke to a delegation of 68 investigative journalists from Ukraine last night at the Library of Congress, the Open World Society forum. They put me on the program to speak specifically about Paul Manafort. I invited Michael Isikoff, who I’ve been working with for the past few weeks, and connected him to the Ukrainians. More offline tomorrow, since there was a big Trump component you and Lauren need to be aware of that will hit in the next few weeks. Something I’m working on that you should be aware of.

Note: Glenn tells an interesting story about the day Manafort was arrested. He said on that very day, Clinton pal Tony Podesta shut down his lobbying firm which was one of the largest in Washington and had been operating for 30 years. He says: “This is why Tony Podesta shut down the Podesta Group, like on the day that Paul Manafort was arrested. Okay? As soon as they arrested him, the biggest lobbying firm, the Clinton lobbying firm, millions of dollars, [Podesta] walks into the office in one day, and says, ‘close the doors.’ Not like, ‘Hey, at the end of the week, or at the end of the month, we’re going to wrap things up,’ [he said ] ‘Close the doors.’ And he shut his firm down. Well, why? Because he’s working with the same group of people, that Manafort [was.]”

Stop the Madness: Joy Reid Panel Explains How Dems Can Make Pelosi President

Westlake Legal Group nancy-pelosi-cbs-this-morning-closeup-SCREENSHOT Stop the Madness: Joy Reid Panel Explains How Dems Can Make Pelosi President Ukraine Politics pence Media impeachment Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post democrats Congress am joy Allow Media Exception

Democrats have been desperate to get rid of President Donald Trump ever since he was elected.

First they tried getting him through the Mueller investigation, now they’re trying the Ukraine call.

But the problem they face in any event is that even if they were somehow able to impeach and convict Trump, they still would be left with Pence, who they also hate. And they still wouldn’t get the control they so deeply crave.

So as we noted yesterday, Democrats seem to be trying to construct an impeachment case against Pence as well, even thought that’s even sillier and more implausible a road to success than that against Trump.

They don’t seem to understand that you can’t impeach someone just because you don’t like him and want power.

But if you wonder how much Democrats are descending into madness, this “AM Joy” panel that Twitchy caught is the perfect example.

All of these adult people and yet nothing they say is based in reality or sense.

You ready? Here goes:

“You could impeach Pence first. The problem is that Donald Trump then has to name his replacement. But I think that maybe a deal could be struck where he was told, if you don’t make a replacement, then Nancy Pelosi does become president.”

Please, folks, Constitution and sanity. That’s not happening, so why even say it? Of course, that woman was preceded by another woman who was equally unhinged talking about how Pence was so “deeply” involved in the corruption he had to go. What?

They are completely out in conspiracy land. Of course, most of these folks were pushing the Russia collusion hoax as a fact, despite it not being true. And Joy Reid has her own issues, given the person who hacked her blog and put all those bigoted things there that she herself certainly didn’t say. Reid told us that she had called the FBI, how’s that case going?

But yes, every time you think that they can’t hit a bottom, they keep going lower. Train off the rails crazy.

Please people, you lost. Get over it. Get a grip.

If all you’re going to do going into 2020 is push impeachment and you include Mike Pence too, prepare to lose again.

There Are Now Multiple “Whistleblowers” Willing to Talk About the Ukraine Phone Call Because More Makes It Illegal or Something

Westlake Legal Group Trump-Finger-Point-620x325 There Are Now Multiple “Whistleblowers” Willing to Talk About the Ukraine Phone Call Because More Makes It Illegal or Something whistleblower complaint Politics Mark Zaid Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Brett Kavanaugh andrew bakaj Allow Media Exception adam schiff

If you were alive and sober during the Brett Kavanaugh hearing, you could already predict how the Ukraine story was going to play out. We start with one “whistleblower.” Early today, George Stephanopoulos broke the story that there was a second “whistleblower.”

Zaid tells ABC News’ Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos that the second person — also described as an intelligence official — has first-hand knowledge of some of the allegations outlined in the original complaint and has been interviewed by the head of the intelligence community’s internal watchdog office, Michael Atkinson.

The existence of a second whistleblower — particularly one who can speak directly about events involving the president related to conversations involving Ukraine — could undercut Trump’s repeated insistence that the original complaint, released on Sept. 26, was “totally inaccurate.”

And now Zaid’s partner, Andrew Bakaj, says there are multiple “whistleblowers.”

BZZZZZT.

From what we’ve seen so far, from the transcript, from the testimony of a participant, Kurt Volker, and from the “whistleblower complaint” the basic allegation is that there is a law that says Democrats cannot be investigated for corruption and President Trump violated that law. People, like Mitt Romney, might not like it but demanding action of foreign nations is done all the time. The fact that it is Joe Biden’s coke addled whelp at the center of this is immaterial. Quite honestly, it really doesn’t matter how many “whistleblowers” climb forth out of Adam Schiff’s rectum, more people testifying on the same event does not make that event wrong or criminal.

All you can say is that President Trump was dead on the money on this one:

Greta Thunberg in Iowa Speech: ‘World leaders keep acting like children, somebody needs to be the adult in the room’. 

Westlake Legal Group Thunberg-rant-at-UN-620x317 Greta Thunberg in Iowa Speech: ‘World leaders keep acting like children, somebody needs to be the adult in the room’.  Nobel Peace Prize Iowa City Climate Strikers Greta Thunberg Green New Deal Front Page Stories Featured Story environment democrats Culture Climate Barack Obama Allow Media Exception

Environmental activist Greta Thunberg, of Sweden, addresses the Climate Action Summit in the United Nations General Assembly, at U.N. headquarters, Monday, Sept. 23, 2019. (AP Photo/Jason DeCrow)

 

Since her arrival to the U.S. in August, Greta Thunberg has taken the American left by storm. Perhaps it’s because of the constant sour look upon her face which resembles the Grinch before his heart grew, or what I consider to be the undeserved glory she receives, I’ve developed an aversion to all things Greta Thunberg.

A recent headline in The Daily Mail tells us that Thunberg is “tipped to win” the Nobel Peace Prize next week. I’ve wondered what this 16-year-old girl, who has quickly become the face of climate change worldwide, has accomplished that might qualify her for such an honor.

On Friday, Thunberg made headlines for a speech she delivered at the Iowa City Climate Strikers. She drove there in a Tesla. That’s about as virtuous as her trip across the ocean in a £15 million sailing yacht.

After being introduced, Thunberg appeared humbled by the turnout of young, like-minded students who gathered on short notice to attend her speech, which surprised me. I hadn’t thought her capable of humility. “Wow. It’s just so many people I don’t think any of us expected this many people. This is real hope, so many people gathering on a weekday at such short notice. This is real hope to me.”

Then, as if a switch was flipped, she turned into the Greta we’ve come to know. She told the crowd, “And we realize we are on indigenous Iowa land, the land of Sioux and Meskwaki.” I guess she thinks that’s our fault.

She continued:

We told world leaders to act on the science and we demanded a safe future for us and for everyone. But they didn’t listen. As we all know, the human climate action summit was a faliure. That was, unfortunately, what we had expected. To stand behind and speak the science is still too uncomfortable for them. That needs to change.

We teenagers and children shouldn’t have to take the responsibility, but right now the world leaders keep acting like children and somebody needs to be the adult in the room.

We promise we will go on every Friday for as long as it takes and the next Global Climate Strike is on November 29. But of course, we strike every week. And we have to prepare ourselves to go on for a very long time. For years. But that will not stop us. We have reached a tipping point where enough people have had enough. Together we are unstoppable.

And we will not beg world leaders to care and to act. They have ignored us in the past and they will ignore us again. We will instead tell them that if they won’t do it, then we will.

Because the world is waking up and we are the change and change is coming whether they like it or not.

This generation believes all they need to do is demand something and they will receive it.

Action to Thunberg and her followers is holding a strike or delivering a speech. She reminds the crowd of the date of the next Global Climate Strike and tells them, “of course, we strike every week.”

They can strike all they’d like, but striking is not action. Action is organizing a team of 200 volunteers and spending the day cleaning up a filthy homeless camp in Los Angeles as activist Scott Presler did last month. He and his group donned hazmat suits and removed over 50 tons of garbage. Prior to that, they spent a weekend cleaning up a sliver of Baltimore. And he has a second clean up scheduled this month in Baltimore. Presler knows that participating in a strike every Friday for the rest of his life won’t clean up American cities. That’s how it’s done Greta.

Action is not standing on a stage and being applauded for talking the talk. Real action involves rolling up your sleeves and walking the walk like Presler.

After listening to her remarks in Iowa and at several other venues, I realize my first impression of this young woman was correct. She is disrespectful, disdainful and ungrateful. Why so many Americans have become so captivated by this hypocrite baffles me.

In her closing remarks, Thunberg channeled a speech delivered by then-candidate Barack Obama. She tells the crowd, “we are the change.” On the campaign trail, Obama told his supporters, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

And the two share another distinction. They were both nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize based on their speeches alone. The deadline to submit nominations for the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize was February 1, 2009. Obama took office on January 20, 2009. As we all know, he won the award.

Recently, Sky News Australia’s Alan Jones delivered a scathing monolog in which he referred to Thunberg and her supporters as “selfish, badly educated, virtue-signaling little turds.” He concluded by telling them to “wake up, grow up and shut up until you’re sure of the facts before protesting.”

My colleague, Brandon Morse, wrote a post which has since gone viral about Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson’s response to Thunberg’s speech at the United Nations. It’s very amusing. If you haven’t read it, here is the link.

Here’s an idea, Greta. Go home. Go back to school and learn something about how to combat climate change. Then you can take real action to make it happen.

Watch the video.

Full transcript of Thunberg’s speech (via Iowa City Press-Citizen):

I’m incredibly proud and honored to be here in Iowa City and in beautiful Iowa with all of you — and it’s just so many people. I don’t think any one of us expected this many people. 

Special thank you to the organizers and the strikers who have been striking Friday after Friday not giving up: Shoshie (Hemley), Esti (Brady), Yardley (Whaylen), Diego (Biggers), Alex (Howe), Massimo (Biggers) and everyone else. Thank you. I think every one of us owe you a great–we owe you so much. You have really done so much for everyone of us. And we realize we are on indigenous Iowa land, the land of Sioux and Meskwaki. We thank Dawson Davenport and all the Meskwaki people here with us today. 

This is the real hope. So many people gathering here on a weekday with such a short notice. 

This is real hope to me. Last week and the week before that well over 7 million people joined the climate strikes. Over 7 million people in more than 180 countries. That is not something you can continue to ignore. We told world leaders to act on the science and we demanded a safe future for us and for everyone. But they didn’t listen. As we all know the human climate action summit was a faliure. That was unfortunately what we had expected. To stand behind and speak the science is still too uncomfortable for them. That needs to change.

No matter what, we need to continue. No matter how hopeless this situation may seem like, we must always carry on. We must never allow ourselves to give up. That is simply not an option. 

We teenagers and children shouldn’t have to take the responsibility, but right now the world leaders keep acting like children and somebody needs to be the adult in the room. 

We promise we will go on every Friday for as long as it takes and the next Global Climate Strike is on November 29. But of course, we strike every week. And we have to prepare ourselves to go on for a very long time. For years. But that will not stop us. We have reached a tipping point where enough people have had enough. Together we are unstoppable. 

And we will not beg world leaders to care and to act. They have ignored us in the past and they will ignore us again. We will instead tell them that if they won’t do it, then we will.

Because the world is waking up and we are the change and change is coming whether they like it or not. 

Thank you once again and have a great day. Continue and never give up.

Elizabeth Warren 2007 Calls Out Elizabeth Warren 2019: Is Warren Telling Another Story That Doesn’t Add Up?

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) likes to tell stories about her life.

We all were treated to the stories about her Native American heritage that then became such a boondoggle for her after DNA tests proved she wasn’t much more Native American than the average white American. People then trolled her with the hashtag “1/1024,” the number the test indicated that could possibly be how much Native American ancestry she has.

Now, apparently another one of her stories about her past is taking a hit. And the hit is coming from Elizabeth Warren herself.

The Democratic presidential candidate has a story that she regularly tells now about how she was let go for being “visibly pregnant” when she taught as a special needs teacher.

According to Tommy Christopher at Mediaite, Elizabeth Warren told the story again this week.

“By the end of the first year, I was quite visibly pregnant and the principal didn’t invite me back for the next school year, ” she says on the video at Mediaite. “So I found myself at home with a baby. Yup, those were the days,” seemingly referencing discrimination against pregnant women in careers at the time.

Except Elizabeth Warren 2007 appears to tell a different tale than does Elizabeth Warren 2019, says Christopher and doesn’t mention any discrimination because she was pregnant but indicated the reason she didn’t continue was because she didn’t have the education courses needed. Mediaite has that video as well.

But in a March 8, 2007 interview with Harvard Law Professor Leo Gottlieb, Warren made it clear that such discrimination had nothing to do with the loss of that teaching job.

Warren told Gottlieb how she had earned a full scholarship to George Washington University at 16, and graduated with a degree in speech pathology and audiology, and didn’t mention the commuter college that has become another pillar in her bio. She then explained that she left her public school job after one school year because she lacked the educational credentials to qualify for a permanent position, and that she decided on her own to abandon the calling.

I was married at nineteen and graduated from college after I’d married, and my first year post-graduation I worked in a public school system with the children with disabilities. I did that for a year, and then that summer I didn’t have the education courses, so I was on an “emergency certificate,” it was called. I went back to graduate school and took a couple of courses in education and said, “I don’t think this is going to work out for me.”

So will anyone in MSM be asking Warren about this apparent discrepancy in her stories?
