Tomorrow, thousands of students across the United States will stage a massive walkout from their schools in the name of human-caused global warming. The name of the protest is the U.S. Youth Climate Strike. The roots of this young green and red communism start with socialist radicals in Europe.
Most rational adults know that the climate change farce is just a load of crap. It’s called ‘weather’. Even the co-founder of Greenpeace, Patrick Moore, says it is a load of bullcrap. There are many credible scientists who disparage it as well.
The environmental Marxists have gotten their hands on our children and we have allowed it to happen. They may claim to be ‘green’ in nature, but scratch the surface just a little and you will see they are ‘red’ to the core. As in communism.
In my opinion, Al Gore is one of the most dangerous men on the planet. He knows what he is peddling is a lie. He does it to garner ever more power and wealth. It is the ultimate Ponzi scheme pushed by puppets such as Socialist Bernie Sanders and Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
Haven’t you heard? Green is the new red. David Hogg and Ilhan Omar are both pushing the event. Any questions?
Who the hell made Nancy Pelosi Queen? More like Wicked Witch of the West.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) first tries to position herself above Trump saying he’s not worth bothering to impeach when there’s nothing to impeach him on. Now, she has revoked the honorary office that former House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) gave Vice President Mike Pence on the first floor of the Capitol back in 2017.
Pence rarely used the office but the symbolism of Pelosi removing his nameplate from the door and then reassigning the space is brutally clear. However, right now that space is just sitting empty, much like the space between Pelosi’s ears. There seem to be a plethora of Marxists on the HIll these days that are bested in the IQ department by a number of rodents in the same vicinity.
“Room assignments are reviewed and changed at the beginning of every Congress,” a Pelosi aide told NPR. The aide also said the White House legislative-affairs team “was given new House-side space this year that they did not previously have.”
The vice president, who serves as the president of the U.S. Senate and has an office on that chamber’s side, was given the House office shortly after President Trump’s inauguration in January 2017; it was a sign of goodwill between the House, then led by the GOP, and one of its former members.
This is a definite sign of ill-will by the new Speaker of the House. Frankly, if the Dems want to be petty like this and go to war politically, if I were President Trump, I would oblige them. Aggressively.
If that old moonbat Pelosi wants to dance, block every piece of Democratic legislation that comes down the pike. Veto everything they ask for. Tie the rest up in the courts with executive orders. Two can do a political tango… but that’s just me and why I should never be president.
Pence has an office in the West Wing as well as a set of offices in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building. Plus, he has space in the Senate. He likely won’t miss his space in the House. In fact, he’ll probably relish not rubbing elbows with evil, Godless leftists who care more about murdering babies, throwing open our borders, doing a two-step on the Constitution and destroying the freest nation on earth than doing what they were elected to do.
I could spend every hour of every day just writing on the idiocy of Democratic Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY)… more often referred to as ‘Occasional Cortex‘ for good reason. I’m stunned every single time I listen to her blather.
She tried to grill Wells Fargo CEO Timothy Sloan during a House Financial Services Committee hearing on Tuesday and made an utter fool of herself… again.
You will be shocked to know the hearing was held by moonbat supreme, Democrat Chairwoman Maxine Waters, and was entitled: “Holding Megabanks Accountable: An Examination of Wells Fargo’s Pattern of Consumer Abuses.” What a farce and an exellent example of abuse of power.
Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t wait to lay into Sloan and thought he would be easy prey for the likes of her political prowess. Not so much. She pushed her political agenda against Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and against the fossil fuel industry. It did not end well for the freshman congresswoman.
“Why was the bank involved in the caging of children and financing the caging of children to begin with?” Ocasio-Cortez demanded.
“I don’t know how to answer that question because we weren’t,” Sloan responded.
“Uh, so in finan–, you’ve, you were financing, involved in debt financing in CoreCivic and GEO group, correct?” Ocasio-Cortez sputtered.
“For a period of time, we were involved in financing one of the firms, we are not anymore,” Sloan responded. “I’m not familiar with the specific assertion you are making, we were not involved in that.”
“OK, so these companies run private detention facilities run by ICE, which is involved in caging children, but I’ll move on,” Ocasio-Cortez conceded.
The gist here is that she accused Wells Fargo of being “involved” in family separations at the border because of the bank’s prior financing of groups that run private prisons. Which is just incredibly dumb and not true.
The back and forth got much worse after that for Occasional Cortex.
“Should Wells Fargo be held responsible for the damages incurred by Climate Change due to the financing of fossil fuels and these projects?” Ocasio-Cortez again put forth.
“I don’t know how’d you calculate that congresswoman,” Sloan responded. Neither does anyone else especially Ocasio-Cortez.
“Say from spills, or when we have to reinvest in infrastructure building sea walls from the erosion of, um, from the erosion of infrastructure or cleanups, wildfires, etc…,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“Related to that pipeline?” Sloan replied. “I’m not aware that there’s been any of what you’ve described that’s occurred that’s related to that pipeline.”
Ocasio-Cortez proceeded to talk over Sloan as he finished answering her question: “How about, uh, the cleans up from the leaks of the Dakota Access pipeline?”
“I’m not aware of the leaks associated with the Dakota Access pipeline that you’re describing,” Sloan responded.
“So, hypothetically, if there was a leak from the Dakota Access pipeline, why shouldn’t Wells Fargo pay for the clean up of it since it paid for the construction of the pipeline itself?”
“Because we don’t operate the pipeline, we provide financing to the company that’s operating the pipeline,” Sloan answered. Ouch. I doubt that Ocasio-Cortez can grasp that logical fact much less debate it.
Why does anyone listen to this Marxist miscreant? There are small rodents with higher IQs out there than Ocasio-Cortez. Just sayin’. If you are going to debate a CEO of a major bank, one who has worked his whole life to climb up the corporate food chain, you might want to come prepared and have a clue concerning what you are talking about.
84 people were arrested in eastern Sacramento last night. They were protesting the shooting of Stephon Clark, 22, last March and the decision by the district attorney to not charge the two officers who shot and killed him.
Schubert’s decision not to charge the officers who shot Clark came after an almost year-long investigation by the Sacramento Police Department, an investigation by the California Department of Justice, and an expert consultant.
The district attorney held a press conference on March 2, during which she explained that investigators had learned that Clark was suicidal when he was fatally shot by police officers on March 18, 2018.
She explained that two days prior, Clark had been involved in a domestic violence incident with the mother of his children, and that he was wanted by police for that and a felony probation violation related to it.
Schubert said investigators had discovered a series of text messages on Clark’s phone in which his former girlfriend said he was going to jail for the rest of his life, and said she would testify against him.
Police found numerous internet searches he had made for ways to commit suicide, and Clark sent his former girlfriend a picture of a pile of Xanax pills and threatened to take them just hours before he was shot.
Schubert said Clark had broken out three car windows, and smashed his grandparents’ neighbor’s sliding glass door with a cinderblock prior to encountering the police that night, but stole nothing.
A police helicopter and officers on the ground spotted Clark as he moved along the side of a house, later identified as his grandparents’ home.
The officers ordered Clark to show his hands and stop, but Clark fled from officers into the backyard of the home.
Both officers pursued Clark. The suspect then turned in a shooting stance and advanced towards officers with an object extended towards them.
Schubert said Clark advanced from about 30 feet away to being only 16 feet away from officers before they opened fire.
In the bodycam video, you could hear an officer yell, “Gun, gun, gun” as Clark took the shooting stance.
One of the officers later said that he saw a flash of light which he believed to be muzzle flash from a gun being fired. The other officer said he thought he saw a reflection of light on a metallic object, Schubert said.
The bodycam video captured the flash of light but the source of the light was unclear.
The object in Clark’s hand was later identified as a cell phone.
A forensic examination of the phone later showed that Clark was not recording the officers at the time of the shooting.
The bodycam showed the officers talking immediately after the shooting, discussing if they were hit and how to safely remove what they believed to be a gun.
A toxicology report showed that Clark had alcohol, Xanax, codeine, hydrocodone, marijuana, and cocaine metabolite in his blood.
The mob of protesters started out at Trader Joe’s grocery store. Then they marched through an upscale, white neighborhood before they tried to shut down a bridge over Highway 50.
Of course, Black Lives Matter was in the thick of it. “We’ve had protests in other neighborhoods and this kind of response has not happened,” said Tanya Faison, the founder of the Sacramento Black Lives Matter chapter. “It proves that everything our DA has said, everything our chief has said and everything our mayor has said was all words.”
These thugs weren’t just marching… they were destroying property as they went. They were keying cars. The protesters were ordered by the police ten separate times to disperse after property owners complained. That took place over two hours before they were finally arrested.
Organizers of the protest at that point urged them to disperse but a large group of them did not listen and moved down 51st street to a bridge above Highway 50 instead. As they moved onto the bridge, police blocked them and started making arrests.
78 of the 84 arrested were on the bridge. Three clergy members were arrested and so were three journalists who were later released.
The sidewalk was lined with dozens of people who sat with their hands twist-tied behind their backs, waiting to be loaded into vans. They were transported to an off-site location — later identified as Cal Expo, the site of the California State Fair — and processed. From there, they would be either cited or arrested.
“I was following the marchers as they crossed the freeway overpass on 51st Street,” Sacramento Bee reporter Dale Kalser said. “It became apparent as we got to the other side [of the bridge] that there was nowhere to go and that the police had basically sealed everything off.”
“There were 50, 60, 70 people all just sort of cordoned off into this small area at the south end of the overpass,” Kalser said. “They just came and started detaining everyone, one by one. And I got caught up in that.”
Scott Rodd of the Sacramento Business Journal and William Coburn of the Sacramento State Hornet were also among those arrested and then let go.
Police expected protests after the announcement not to charge the two police officers over the shooting. Those arrested included pastor Les Simmons, a prominent activist for the Clark cause. Other clergy members were also arrested, as were college students who were part of a group that recently held a sit-in protest that shut down the Arden Fair Mall.
The arrests surprised many of the activists who left after the initial dispersal orders from police. Make no mistake, many of the protesters were communists and militant racists.
“I’m pissed, I’m angry. I’m frustrated,” said Berry Accius, an organizer with Voice of the Youth. “I thought everything was cool, we were about to end the protest … we accomplished what we wanted to accomplish and to get a phone call 30 or 40 minutes later and hearing my comrades, some of my friends, [pastor] Les Simmons, some of my young people that I was with protesting shutting down the mall have been arrested today, and all for what?”
The two officers who shot Clark were accused of racism. One officer is black, the other is white. For all the world, this looks like suicide by cop to me and the police were justified in their response.
But communists and radicals never let an emergency go to waste. And they are using this boy’s death to stir up racial animosity, hatred for police officers, and chaos in the streets. It’s textbook Marxism and vintage California these days.
In what can only be called an evil act, Senate Democrats blocked Republican Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse’s the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act. The legislation would protect babies born alive after a botched abortion.
Only three Democrats voted for it: Democratic Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey voted alongside Republican Sen. Pat Toomey, also from the Keystone State, who had co-sponsored the bill with Sasse. Democratic Alabama Sen. Doug Jones also voted with Republicans Monday.
“I want to ask each and every one of my colleagues whether we’re okay with infanticide,” said Sen. Sasse of the legislation. “This language is blunt. I recognize that and it’s too blunt for many people in this body. But frankly, that is what we’re talking about here today. Infanticide is what the Born-Alive Abortion Survivors Protection Act is actually about.”
“Are we a country that protects babies that are alive, born outside the womb after having survived a botched abortion?” he continued. “That is what this is about. Are we a country that says it’s okay to actively allow that baby to die — which is the current position of federal law? That’s the question before us, plain and simple.”
For all of you out there that wondered what the heck happened to me over the last couple of weeks, I have answers. 😉
On Dec. 5th I went in to have a hysterectomy. It’s a common surgery and all looked well when I went home a day or so later. Unfortunately, I developed a secondary infection that was very serious. They nuked it with very strong antibiotics that in turn hurt my kidneys. I had to wait until that stabilized to go home.
I will be recovering for a few weeks, but I’m back. Thank you all for supporting me and being so kind.
It has been my honor and pleasure to get to know Tabitha Korol. She’s not only a wonderful author and writer but a true patriot and someone who is not afraid to tell it like it is. As America roils with chaos and uncertainty foisted on her from leftists who are intent on removing a duly elected president and forcing the freest nation on earth into bowing before Marxism, Tabitha writes of what we have forgotten. She writes on what happened on 9/11/2001… and on what many of us swore we would never forget.
It has long been my belief that we should have attacked Iran after 9/11 as the major culprit in the attack on our homeland. But in the end, the enemy here is radical Islam and always has been. And the threat has not diminished but grown in the last 17 years. We have let our guard down and we have let the enemy within America. Communists on the left seed our communities with Islamist refugees we know nothing about. It is a recipe for murder, chaos, conquest, and terrorism. Jihadists and their holy war are now here in America and we invited them in even after they slaughtered almost 3,000 Americans on that fateful sunny morning in 2001.
Confronting the Deception by Tabitha Korol, reminds all of us that it wasn’t just Osama bin Laden or al Qaeda that murdered innocent Americans that day. The threat had been growing for decades and Americans were comfy thinking we were immune to it. Not so much. If you read her research, it tells that although Muslims assure us of their peaceful intentions, most of it is Taqiyya (lies) to infidels.
I agree with Tabitha’s conclusion that it is not only a small number of radical Muslims who wish us harm, but it is also the Ummah itself… the Muslim collective. The radical terrorists are just those tasked with the dirty work. Islam believes it should rule the world under shariah law. From the beginning, I have considered it a flawed, fractured religion and not a good one. For that, I have been censored and purged. So has Tabitha. It is an internal and an external threat we dare not ignore but seem bent on doing so. It is an existential threat to Judaeo-Christian civilization.
As Glenn Beck and others have pointed out often, the Caliphate (and there are multiple ones among Muslims) is a danger to all of us. The US stands with Israel because we believe in freedom. Islam does not. It is a theology that thrives on conquest, subjugation, bloodshed, and suppression. Korol’s book points out all of this and more. I believe this is literally a fight to the death for civilizations.
Confronting the Deception puts forth that Islam claims that 9/11 was an act of the Caliphate and “is still being fueled by a Shadow Government.” With CAIR and a ton of organizations now on US soil, that is a foregone conclusion. We have never been given the truth of radical Islam by the media, most of the government and certainly not by the left. In the end, the political theology of Islam in America screams hatred towards infidels and our way of life. “Death to America” is no longer just a saying, but a goal of the Caliphate and we had better come to terms with it before it is too late.
Since 9/11, the United States, Israel, and cultures that still value our freedoms have been fighting a battle of survival on several fronts. The ideology born out of the Islamic attempt to claim Ground Zero as its caliphate is still being fueled by the Shadow Government. The seriously deceptive media hides the truths about Islam’s invasion into other countries and our own, concealing the consequent tectonic changes in the intruded societies, with the result that America’s needs for urgent analysis and discussion are suppressed.
Academia, from kindergarten to university, is disinviting valuable speakers and turning patriots into globalists. Curricula, textbooks, and teaching methods are being changed, inspiration quenched, and competition discouraged by an equalizing grading system, engineering the children’s psyche to produce a compliant, nonproductive generation.
“Confronting the Deception” challenges the insidious propaganda with arguments supported by irrefutable facts. Korol exposes the gravity of the threats we face with copious links to Koranic quotes, historic accounts, and trustworthy documentation not available in any other single source, and reveals the mentality that creates the jihadi terrorist, in order to help the reader to navigate the distortions that are peddled as truths.
Deception is the modus operandi of Islam and the Left. We are being indoctrinated to disrespect and dislike America, to devalue our freedoms, and to cast aside the advancements we’ve made since our founding. The “Eight Years” have brought us an increase in divisiveness, intolerance, street violence, rapes, honor killings, and FGM, combined with a drip-feed of false narratives to direct the thinking of the gullible. This book is an attempt to redress our endangered world by Confronting the Deception.
If you are interested in radical Islam and the threat of terrorism here in America, Confronting the Deception is a must read. I cannot recommend the book highly enough. Tabitha Korol nailed it and she is a tremendous writer and researcher. You can purchase your copy on Amazon.com.
A few days ago, I wrote again on China’s communist social credit system. But we have our own system being utilized here in the United States in the form of Google, Facebook, Twitter, and other Internet platforms. I have already been purged from Facebook for my political views. Many other conservatives have as well. Twitter is also cracking down. They just permanently banned conservative writer, radio host, and combat veteran Jesse Kelly. In retaliation for that, Instant Pundit’s Glenn Reynolds quit Twitter yesterday. I can’t say that I blame him for it either.
Glenn had this to say after he deleted his Twitter account:
People seem to want more, and although there’s nothing duller than posting a screed on why you’re quitting a platform, here’s the gist: I’ve never liked Twitter even though I’ve used it. I was a late adopter, and with good reason. It’s the crystal meth of social media — addictive and destructive, yet simultaneously unsatisfying. When I’m off it I’m happier than when I’m on it. That it’s also being run by crappy SJW types who break their promises, to users, shareholders, and the government, of free speech is just the final reason. Why should I provide free content to people I don’t like, who hate me? I’m currently working on a book on social media, and I keep coming back to the point that Twitter is far and away the most socially destructive of the various platforms. So I decided to suspend them, as they are suspending others. At least I’m giving my reasons, which is more than they’ve done usually.
Instant Pundit was one of the first bloggers out there and drives huge amounts of conservative traffic. We call it an ‘Instalanche’ when Glenn puts out a story you have written or are connected to. He’s had it with this censorship and he won’t be the last by any means.
