Mayors from 50 Cities Take Gas-Guzzling Jets to Sweden in Order to Save the Environment, as the Goofy Game Continues

From what I’ve seen, there are few if any public voices on climate change whose lifestyles affirm the reality of their claims.

If you consider yourself a warrior in the fight against a solar Armageddon yet do more than the average person to worsen it, you’re just playing a game.

The average American doesn’t do much. They mostly live where they were born. They drive to work, they drive home. They go to little league games.

If you’re championing the cause against pollution and you board a jet, you’re not making any sense.

Pick one.

As I’ve said before, human beings started out wanderin’ around, nekkid in the woods. They were “green.” Walmart? Not green. Best Buy? Not green. Amazon? Apple? NBC? None green. Any company manufacturing and transporting things and paying people to do it — employees who’ll also require transportation and resources which in turn mandate more transportation and employees — is not green.

If you wanna be green, stop making stuff. Go live in the buff under trees in the leaves.

Greenness attained.

That’s my advice, but no one seems interested.

Hence, mayors from 50 cities and officials the world over got in a buncha giant gas guzzlers and shot across the sky to Denmark last week for the C40 World Mayors Summit.

That group also included cowfart-fighter and frequent flier Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who dreams of a world without planes, and you can read about her emotional speech in RedState writer Nick Arama’s coverage.

Shouldn’t scientists be speaking at a conference about science? I can’t imagine a 1955 convention on the effects of pollution and cosmic components being led by someone who was just recently a bartender.

“Progress”?

Another non-scientist who laid it: Al Gore.

That would be, the man who, 14 years ago, said we only had 10 years to save the world.

He knows it’s way too late. Shouldn’t he be on the golf course, or skydiving with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman?

He’s also the recent recipient of the Climate Hypocrite Award.

As I wrote in September:

[T]he Tennessee Center for Policy Research revealed the great global warming activist lived such an extreme lifestyle that the utility bills for his Belle Meade mansion totaled $30,000 per year.

A similar exposé was delivered by a Nashville newspaper a few years before that.

In 2010, Al and Tipper added another house to their collection, in Montecito, California.

Here’s the World Property Journal:

The couple spent $8,875,000 on a gated ocean-view villa on 1 1/2 acres with a swimming pool, spa and fountains, according to real estate sources familiar with the deal. The Italian-style house has high ceilings with beams in the public rooms, a family room, a wine cellar, terraces, six fireplaces, five bedrooms and nine bathrooms in more than 6,500 square feet of living space. … The 93108 ZIP Code, which includes the coastal hamlet, was ranked as America’s seventh most expensive area last year by Forbes.

And consider a bit of info from the National Center for Public Policy Research:

In powering his home, Gore still greatly outpaces most Americans in energy consumption. The findings were shocking:

  • The past year, Gore’s home energy use averaged 19,241 kilowatt hours (kWh) every month, compared to the U.S. household average of 901 kWh per month.
  • Gore guzzles more electricity in one year than the average American family uses in 21 years.
  • In September of 2016, Gore’s home consumed 30,993 kWh in just one month – as much energy as a typical American family burns in 34 months.
  • During the last 12 months, Gore devoured 66,159 kWh of electricity just heating his pool. That is enough energy to power six average U.S.  households for a year.
  • From August 2016 through July 2017, Gore spent almost $22,000 on electricity bills.
  • Gore paid an estimated $60,000 to install 33 solar panels. Those solar panels produce an average of 1,092 kWh per month, only 5.7% of Gore’s typical monthly energy consumption.

Here’s what that guy — who also flew in — had to say at the conference:

“Because of what’s happened to our national governments, mayors are on the [climate change] front line now.

“A lot of this is up to you; we need you, we need your help, the world needs your help, the next generation needs your help and the young people are saying in ever louder, more passionate terms that they depend on us to do the right thing.

Al explained that mayors “do not have the luxury of just going away and reading reports about what is going on. You run into your constituents every single day.”

As reported by The Daily Wire, mayors from 14 of the world’s largest cities promised to cut down on the amount of meat served in schools, hospitals, and public buildings.

They want to reduce the amount of meat people eat to less than 300 grams a week, about the size of two steaks. Dubbed the “Planetary Health Diet,” it is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. So far, such cities as Barcelona, London, Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo and Toronto have signed on to the C40 Good Food Cities Declaration signed on Thursday.

Does all this change anything? 14 cities? On a planet of 7 billion? Thanks to a convention involving tons of jets? By people who do more than the average person to pollute?

Someone should tell the gang about Skype. And the rest of the world.

These days, saving it is strange business.

Adam Schiff Bans a Republican From the “Impeachment Hearings” As the Secrecy Continues

Westlake Legal Group AS Adam Schiff Bans a Republican From the “Impeachment Hearings” As the Secrecy Continues The Federalist secrecy Sean Davis Politics Matt Gaetz Impeachment Hearing Hiding Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story donald trump democrats cover up corruption banned Allow Media Exception adam schiff

I guess we are going to impeach Trump based on non-public information. That seems to be the direction this continues to move in.

No doubt, Rep. Adam Schiff is planning to formulate his own “report” and release it eventually, but along the way, he doesn’t want any daylight to shine on what’s he’s doing. He took an even more direct step in covering up everything by banning Rep. Matt Gaetz from an “impeachment hearing” today.

Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., just banned a key Republican lawmaker from the deposition of a former anti-Trump national security official believed to be at the center of ongoing Ukraine proceedings, sources tell The Federalist. Schiff tossed Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., out of the deposition.

Although the U.S. House of Representatives has not approved a resolution authorizing a formal impeachment investigation, House Democrats have nonetheless insisted that they have full authority to subpoena all documents and testimony they desire, even if specific committees lack the jurisdiction to demand particular information. Schiff, whom Pelosi tapped to lead her party’s anti-Trump impeachment efforts, chairs the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI), which only has jurisdiction over the federal government’s intelligence agencies and related components.

This all connects back to the Democrat strategy of not actually voting on impeachment. In reality, there is not “impeachment inquiry” and there are no hearings. These are simply partisan-led and enforced committee interviews taking place, nothing more. The media have hyped it up to be something it isn’t.

Because there’s been no vote, Republicans continue to have no authority to participate and that’s showing here with Schiff’s latest move to ban Gaetz. Schiff shouldn’t even be part of this, as he’s not on the House Judiciary Committee. Instead, he’s being allowed to run point while Gaetz, who is on that committee, is being denied even basic access to what’s going on. In other words, this is a complete sham. If Republicans had acted this way during the Benghazi hearings, it would of been front page news and led to a continual gnashing of teeth from the legacy media. Because it’s Schiff and the Democrats, they act like this is all fine. Republicans are suckers though, so they bent over backwards to allow access to equal time to the other party.

The person testifying today is Fiona Hill, who appears to be one of the “whistle-blower’s” sources. What she could possibly add to the situation when we already have the transcript is beyond me, but the game here is clearly not to get facts. It’s to simply push a narrative. Schiff will continue to trot out witness after witness, drawing this out into next year if he can. In the end, we already have the most important piece of information and it’s being largely ignored now.

What appears to be happening is that President Trump blew up their game plan by releasing the transcript to begin with. They wanted to slow-roll this, much like the Kavanaugh hearing, with selective leaks and a laundry list of people playing into their story. Now, with the call already out there, we are doing some weird theater where we pretend 2nd and 3rd hand accounts are somehow relevant. They aren’t. What’s relevant is what’s in the call.

Of course, Schiff will get away with it because there’s no one to actually call out what he’s doing. Anyone think CNN is going to criticize what’s going on? Didn’t think so.

Sen. John McCain’s Family Condemns the Violent Trump Meme – Widow Cindy Tweets ‘Outrage’

Westlake Legal Group AP_17208804921674-620x413 Sen. John McCain’s Family Condemns the Violent Trump Meme – Widow Cindy Tweets ‘Outrage’ Uncategorized Front Page Stories

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., speaks to reporters on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, July 27, 2017. The Senate voted decisively to approve a new package of stiff financial sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea, sending the popular bill to President Donald Trump for his signature after weeks of intense negotiations. The legislation is aimed at punishing Moscow for meddling in the 2016 presidential election and its military aggression in Ukraine and Syria, where the Kremlin has backed President Bashar Assad. McCain said the bill’s passage was long overdue, a jab at Trump and the GOP-controlled Congress.

If you haven’t heard, a video meme created from the movie Kingsman: The Secret Service is all the rage at the moment.

“Rage,” in terms of both its meanings.

The 20th Century Fox film features an absolute firearm-fueled slaughter inside a small church, and meme-maker Carpe Donktum embellished the movie’s protagonist shooter with Donald Trump’s head.

His victims were edited to represent various media outlets, a few members of Hollywood (Peter Fonda, Rosie O’Donnell, and Harvey Weinstein), a handful of well-known Democrats, and even a couple Republicans.

Half of that GOP pair is the late Sen. John McCain, and his family has publicly condemned the video.

The meme was created last year and has no relationship to the White House, yet some appear to be excoriating it as if the President had it commissioned.

As for John’s wife, she made clear her stance in a tweet:

“I stand with the [White House Correspondents Association] in registering my outrage.”

Daughter Meghan — co-host of ABC’s The View — also issued a denouncement:

“One of the people in this video is my Dad, sitting senators and congresspeople,” she said. “Please don’t insult me or them by insinuating this is anything like heavy metal. This could inspire violence towards REAL people.”

Trump and Sen. McCain, of course, had a very strained relationship.

Seven months after John’s passing, the President said, “I was never a fan of John McCain, and I never will be.”

Meghan’s taken her turns as well, some on the air:

“He spends his weekend obsessing over wonderful, great men because he knows it, and I know it, and all of you know it: He will never be a great man.”

“My father was his kryptonite in life and his kryptonite in death.”

“And I just thought, ‘Your life is spent on weekends not with your family, not with your friends, but obsessing, obsessing, over great men you could never live up to.’ That tells you everything you needed to know about his pathetic life.”

The bad blood has certainly been unpleasant to watch.

And speaking of watching, personally, I was surprised the violent scene as it appeared in the film didn’t spark outrage at the time of the movie’s release — it was a gruesome mass murder in a church, with the killers as heroes.

Putting aside heavy metal and memery, that sort of crime is something that has actually occurred in the real world, and more than once — consider Dylan Roof in Charleston or the Sutherland Springs slayings, as only two examples.

If you haven’t seen the video, I’m including it below. But I want to make sure you know: There is brutality portrayed; watch at your own risk.

Mark Zuckerberg Is Meeting In Secret With Conservatives Discussing Free Speech

Well, what do you know?

Seems that CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, has been sitting down in secret with conservative pundits, writers and even a congressperson as of late. Maybe he realizes that Elizabeth Warren and her merry bunch of zealots are worse than dealing with people he opposes politically.

According to Politico this has been going on for a short time…

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been hosting informal talks and small, off-the-record dinners with conservative journalists, commentators and at least one Republican lawmaker in recent months to discuss issues like free speech and discuss partnerships.

The dinners, which began in July, are part of Zuckerberg’s broader effort to cultivate friends on the right amid outrage by President Donald Trump and his allies over alleged “bias” against conservatives at Facebook and other major social media companies. “I’m under no illusions that he’s a conservative but I think he does care about some of our concerns,” said one person familiar with the gatherings, which multiple sources have confirmed.

Some of the people who have been rumored to have attended the meetings are Mary Katharine Ham, Ben Shapiro, Matt Continetti, Guy Benson, and Brent Bozell. Byron York confirmed he attended one of the dinners but refused to discuss what was talked about.

The article does say that this outreach was to try and ease some of the fears of those that might have some influence with the Trump administration in the hope to quiet some of the saber-rattling.

Trump is not your problem Mark.

Elizabeth Warren is on the warpath (PUN FULLY INTENDED) and she is coming for your monopoly buddy.

This is a classic example of liberals wanting to claim the higher ground while shutting down any discussion of any ground under the rules of feelings being hurt. Zuckerberg is part of this mindset no matter how many dinners he holds to try a charm offensive and act otherwise.

All you have to do is treat both sides equally.

In this case, what that means is to let the words fly. Don’t referee to any side and you will not have any issue. The notion that Facebook has been treating all sides fairly is ludicrous. Just go and google how many grievances people that are “right” leaning have been banned as opposed to “left” leaning. The complaints are numerous on the right. If you think the left doesn’t like to complain when they get axed I have a bridge to sell you in Chappaquiddick.

Hopefully, these meetings do show Mark that conservatives are not that scary and these concerns should be dealt with going from the top down.

Otherwise, you will have to deal with Elizabeth Warren and no one rational wants to do that.

Violent Meme? How About Actual Violence Against Trump Supporters Like These Attacks

Westlake Legal Group Screen-Shot-2019-10-14-at-3.46.07-PM Violent Meme? How About Actual Violence Against Trump Supporters Like These Attacks media bias Media Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story Featured Post donald trump democrats antifa Allow Media Exception

Screenshot from this video

Liberal media is all atwitter today over a video that was shown at a pro-Trump conference.

The video shows people with the logos of various networks replacing their faces getting shot at. The video was shown to a view people off in a side room and wasn’t endorsed by Trump or the White House. The White House immediately condemned the video. It was an old video from a year ago that had minimal viewership – until media began sharing it.

They claim that this is a result of Trump cultivating hate against the media.

But they’re completely lacking in self-awareness about the divisive climate they themselves have cultivated by demonizing the president as an existential threat and pushing conspiracy theories about his legitimacy and his presidency.

They ignore video such as the one from Snoop Dogg targeting President Donald Trump for assassination, aiming a gun at Trump’s head.

They ignore actual harassment and attacks, not memes or videos, on GOP officials and Trump supporters.

Did the media condemn Democrats demonizing Republicans over healthcare and calling the GOP an existential threat? Many GOP members were attacked and harassed by people on the left, the most known incident being the folks shot at the GOP baseball practice by a Bernie Bro who yelled, “This is for healthcare” as he shot at people.

Has the media condemned the Democrats like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) who encouraged harassment of Trump officials?

Did network media even cover the attacks on Trump supporters at the Minnesota rally? Where was the network coverage and condemnation of this?

We covered some of the rally attacks here and here. But here’s another one.

Here’s a longer take of many of the attacks from local Alpha News.

Warning for graphic language.

No one should be encouraging violence against anyone and violence should be condemned.

Yet media seems often quiet when it comes to real violence directed at the GOP or Trump supporters. And even in the case of Antifa attacks, people like CNN’s Don Lemon and Chris Cuomo have minimized such violence treating it more as a bug rather than a feature, saying that Antifa’s cause is “right” or “just.”

People see that and they see the double standard.

Watch: Lee Zeldin Blasts Schiff’s “Impeachment Cocktail”, Demands Vote on Impeachment Inquiry

Rep. Lee Zeldin, R-N.Y., speaks during a news conference, with other House members, where they called for a second prosecutor to investigate the Dept. of Justice and FBI, Tuesday, May 22, 2018, on Capitol Hill in Washington. (AP Photo/Jacquelyn Martin)

Last week, I wrote about how Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-NY) absolutely ripped House Intel Chair Adam Schiff and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi over what he called a “clown show” impeachment inquiry process where selective bits of information were allegedly being leaked to the media by Democrats in order to paint a distorted picture of what had been said behind closed doors so far.

Zeldin, the ranking member on the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, continued hammering this point home over the weekend in several interviews, including one he did on ABC Sunday with Jonathan Karl.

During the interview, Zeldin blasted the fact that Pelosi still refuses to hold an impeachment inquiry vote on the House floor, which would give Republicans subpoena power and President Trump’s legal team the ability to do things like cross-examine witnesses.

He also pointed out that Schiff was trying to get Americans drunk on an “impeachment cocktail”, which he said contained three ingredients.

Here’s a partial transcript:

KARL: So you’re OK with all — all the transcripts coming out? You want to see Fiona Hill, who’s testifying next week, you want to see all — all the people that the administration does not want to testify, you want those transcripts to be out?

ZELDIN: No, the president wants there to be a process. The president is saying that there should be a vote for an impeachment inquiry, as you just pointed out with Congressman Himes, there should be a process. The minority parties should have subpoena power. The president should have counsel present. He should be able to cross-exam witnesses; he should be able to present evidence. There should be a process, but instead what Adam Schiff wants is to get United States of America drunk on his favorite cocktail. There’s three ingredients. One is cherry-picking leaks, second is withholding facts, and three is just outright lying. I mean he is — he lied about his whistleblower contact, he lied when he gave his opening statement in front of the Acting Director of National Intelligence, he lied when he said that President Trump requested President Zelensky to, quote, manufacture dirt. Now, if we all had Ambassador Volker’s testimony, we would know that that’s not true. We would also know that it obliterated the quid pro quo charge, that fairytale, that President Trump supposedly demanded that there would be an investigation open against the Bidens in order to get aid from the United States to Ukraine.

KARL: It’s clear that he brought this up exactly when the issue with aid to Ukraine was raised.

ZELDIN: No — well let’s — this, what Ambassador Volker’s transcript would show you substantively.

Zeldin also stated that contra to media/Democrat talking points that suggest otherwise, the assertions Trump made about Joe Biden and Hunter Biden as it relates to the Ukrainian prosecutor and Burisma Holdings have not been debunked.

Watch: Virtue Signaling Swedes Say They’d Take Refugees Into Their Home Until Presented With One

If there’s one thing I love about people who viture signal, it’s that when it comes time to practice what they preach, they suddenly have excuses as to why they don’t practice the virtues they’ve been preaching to you about.

Take, for instance, the good people of Sweden. The country leans so heavily left that it’s fallen over into the muck of its own making. It’s welcomed in refugees from the middle east, and as a result, has seen a spiking crime and rape epidemic that nabbed it the title of “rape capital of the west.”

Instead of helping the people of its country, the Swedish government went about covering up its rape statistics. What’s more, the Swedish people are seemingly proud of their newfound troubles and are outwardly welcoming to the refugees.

Outwardly being the keyword here.

Recently, a small group set out to get the reactions of Swedes when asked if they would be willing to take refugees in themselves. Every person in the video answered they would.

They were likely feeling pretty proud of themselves as they answered the question, but then the video makers suddenly put their convictions to the test as the Swedes were then presented with a migrant they could take in. A grown man named “Ali,” who needed a place to live.

Naturally, the people who were so welcoming just moments ago began desperately searching any excuse in the book to not have to take in the migrant and all their talk about helping those in need looked oh so foolish.

It makes you wonder what kind of society we’d be living in if people were just more honest with themselves and others about their beliefs. If Swedes would just stand up and say that they’re not into the idea of refugees living in their homes because of the fact that they know it may invite all sorts of troubles, then perhaps Sweden would be a country much lower in crime and rape.

But this simple video just unveiled the truth about virtue signaling. It’s many people creating problems for others that they themselves wouldn’t take on. This video may have taken part in Sweden, but it’s a principle that applies to everyone.

SJWs Are Now Going After Dungeons & Dragons for a Very Stupid Reason

One of two things has to be true about social justice warriors and the things they complain about.

Either they’ve never played the games or experienced the media they’re “outraged” about, or they live so deeply in their own world that it puts them into a sort of psychosis, forcing them to see a “reality” that is starkly different from actual reality.

This happens with everything. Movies, video games, and comic books are all pegged by social justice warriors “racist,” or “homophobic,” or “sexist,” or “uninclusive.”

All of these claims are demonstrably false. Nerd culture specifically has been nothing but inclusive, seeing as how nerds have always been a subculture that has almost been forced to stick together. People forget that before being a nerd became cool in the present day, being one meant you were going to be the target of ridicule and, likely, a little bit of violence. Nerds found their clique because companionship is needed, in part, for their own sanity.

One thing nerds loved to do is play Dungeons & Dragons and, wouldn’t you know it, just like every other thing nerds hold dear, it’s now come under attack by the SJW crowd too for being “uninclusive.”

By Gygax, the claims by this woman are ridiculous by the premise alone.

When it first became popular, people thought it was some kind of demon worship. It wasn’t, but it was also looked down on as incredibly nerdy. Over time, the game became more popular, and despite the fact that there are video games that allow you to play games like D&D without all the dice rolling and math, it still remains a popular game to play today.

I should know, as I’m one of those nerds who like to play D&D.

I like it because it becomes more than just a game. You’re hanging out with your friends, drinking, and joking around while you use your imaginations to solve problems and create stories on the fly. What’s more, all of the D&D games I’ve played, with the exception of one, had a mixed bag of people.

Men, women, lesbians, Hispanic people, black people, right-wing, left-wing, and more have all been in my D&D sessions. Like most nerdy things, there’s such a wide array of people involved in it that the word “uninclusive” has never been something I’ve associated with it.

I’ve never, in my life, seen someone forming a D&D group say that someone wasn’t invited because of what they were born as. Not once. Ever.

I’m not saying it hasn’t happened, and perhaps this woman has been excluded from games before, but I’m willing to bet it was because of one of two things. Perhaps it was because it was a group of men wanting to form a men’s only game, which is perfectly fine. Men and women should be able to form groups of exclusively men or women if they so choose.

Or second, and most likely, this woman is an annoying bore who is so caught up in identity politics that the group just didn’t want her around, killing the buzz.

And fair enough.

But this is more than just one woman. This is the BBC making this claim that D&D is uninclusive. Why?

Because social justice politics demands it has a seat at every table, no matter what that table is, in order to force anyone at that table to act and speak a certain way. While they’re attempting to force Dungeons & Dragons players to adhere to the rules of social justice etiquette, they’re also in the sports world, attempting to force football players to do the same.

This isn’t just a take over of nerd culture, it’s a takeover of the culture, period. Nothing is safe, everything will be attacked. Everything is up for infiltration and alteration.

This is what SJWs do. It doesn’t matter if their excuses for doing so are demonstrably false.

Did ABC News Try to Pass off 2016 Gun Range Video as Footage of Turkey’s Military Bombing Kurd Civilians?

President Trump received widespread criticism for his decision to withdraw U.S. forces from northern Syria.

In a weekend broadcast, it sure looks like ABC News tried to pass off dramatic video from a 2016 Knob Creek (West Point, Kentucky) night shoot for footage of “Turkey’s military bombing of Kurd civilians.”

A brief clip from the ABC broadcast can be viewed in the tweet below.

Here is the 2016 Knob Creek video which was uploaded in 2017.

It sure looks like the same video, right down to the formation of the little white lights in the foreground, which are the cell phones of the people  watching the shoot. You can see them clearly in the video.

It’s possible this video was included by mistake, but knowing how the mainstream media operates, I doubt that very much.

If I hear differently, I’ll add an update.
