I don't think the real target is AOC. There may be an agenda and she's just the messenger. Attacking her could just be an act of self indulging in your own prejudice.

“…they created the problem, created the proof of the problem, then offered the solution. This is what was done with the AGW claim. They assumed, incorrectly, that a CO2 increase causes a temperature increase. They then provided proof by programming computer models in which a CO2 increase caused a temperature increase. They ran the model(s) by doubling CO2, ceteris paribus. The results showed a temperature increase, which proved their claim. Now they could use CO2 as the lever for all their political objectives … Science became the basis of blind faith.”

"Attacking her could just be an act of self indulging in your own prejudice."

Okay, so seriously, exactly what does that mean?

Great article. Thanks for posting. He left out the "A" in AGW, which I assume he means is "Anthropogenic".

What I find funny when one questions the Left's Religion and it's position against anthropogenic global warming, they label you a denier and declare you as "not believing the science". Yet these are the same people that believe a person gets to decide what their gender is (facebook has 58 or so choices... ).

And when you point this stupidity out to them, they call you a name.

This article from Charles Krauthammer 11 years ago is just as relevant today:

I liked Krauthammer:


".......A case so strong that, against any of a dozen possible GOP candidates, voting for her opponent would be a no-brainer. Against Donald Trump, however, it’s a dilemma. I will not vote for Hillary Clinton. But, as I’ve explained in these columns, I could never vote for Donald Trump.

And in 2017, he wrote that he had been convinced that Donald Trump Jr.’s emails regarding a meeting between the Trump campaign and a “Russian government attorney” — in which the president’s son replied “I love it” to the prospect of receiving potentially damaging information regarding Clinton — constituted collusion.

Once you’ve said “I’m in,” it makes no difference that the meeting was a bust, that the intermediary brought no such goods. What matters is what Donald Jr. thought going into the meeting, as well as Jared Kushner and then-campaign manager Paul Manafort, who were forwarded the correspondence, invited to the meeting, and attended. ... There is no statute against helping a foreign hostile power meddle in an American election. What Donald Jr. — and Kushner and Manafort — did may not be criminal. But it is not merely stupid. It is also deeply wrong, a fundamental violation of any code of civic honor

I also was a Krauthammer fan, but he and I disagreed on Trump. Perhaps he was too much part of the establishment-wing of the Republican Party. 🤔

Putting my personal feelings aside... if receiving damaging information from a foreign source is deemed illegal, then a LOT of current and former politicians should start worrying... First of whom is Hillary Clinton. Remember, the Steel Dossier fits this exact definition... and the Clinton Campaign paid for it!

My theory is the Trump Tower meeting will never become a real issue, because it would be exposed for the setup/frame job it was.

Was looking at this plan again and it seems that all power stations will need to become wind, solar, and hydro.

I wonder how that is going to happen, since hydro is really the only viable source of power, and the environmentalists have prevented any new hydro plants from being built in almost 40 years.

Same goes for wind power, many environmentalists refuse to allow any more to be built for various reasons.

Leftists against leftists.

Wonder how that will turn out?

Perhaps like the Soviets vs. the Nazi in the late 1930's?

Solar is great bit it's useless on a snowy day like this here in NJ. Even with massive solar farms out in the sunny desert you will not generate massive amounts of wattage that a nuclear plant will. Solar and wind power is a great way to supplement our energy needs but they will never top nuclear power. Solar panels are also only good for about 20 years, depending on their exposure to the elements.

Finland giving up on Universal Basic Income project

So two years ago Finland started a Universal Basic Income project where folks who were chronically unemployed would be given $690 a month, different from their welfare program or other unemployment insurance type of programs where your benefits were reduced if you got work....in the UBI project your benefits wouldn't be touched if you got work. The hope being that folks would take the opportunity to get work to supplement their UBI benefits. Well it seems that has not been the case, the uptick in employment amongst those getting the UBI has been negligible although those collecting the benefits report being happier overall.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/w...-a8769621.html

It should also be noted that a similar project was just scrapped here in Ontario as it found similar results. One guy who was selected for the program and was working at the time quit his job so he could pursue his hobbies full time. The benefit in Ontario was about $2000 a month.

First she puts it out for all to see on the web, immediately she gets shredded for her preposterous, uninformed, insane ideas, the laughable piece is taken off the web, dem pundits go on the tube and venomously blame republicans for doctoring the document, proof is readily available it was indeed put out by Cortez crew initially and not doctored by anyone. This is the future of the democrat party.
You just can't beat this comedic shit.

If you have time in your busy life and want some laughs (I have a lot of time since I'm unwilling to work and she's paying me), go on her Twitter account and read some of the replies to her tweets. Comedy gold.
