Report: Green New Deal Will Impose A $75,000 Per Year Cost On Swing-State Households | The Daily Caller:

Image result for flickr commons images piles of moneyAmericans in nearly a dozen swing states could expect to spend roughly $75,000 per year if the Green New Deal is ever implemented, according to a report Wednesday from a conservative nonprofit group.
The Green New Deal would cost households an average of between $74,287 and $76,683 in Colorado, Michigan and Pennsylvania, among others, a report from the Competitive Enterprise Institute noted. CEI worked with Power the Future and the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty on the report.
“Right now, our booming national economy and record low unemployment rate is driven by abundant, domestic, reliable, and inexpensive energy produced by millions of men and women across the country,” Daniel Turner, executive director of Power the Future, said in a statement.

"On Wednesday, an angry ex-employee got a gun, put a silencer on it, went to the MillersCoors facility where he had once worked, and shot five people to death before shooting himself. 
One would expect to have a barrage of news stories about America’s gun violence problem and the need to ban guns. 
After all, on Tuesday, before the shooting happened, the Democrat candidates were all over each other trying to explain why each would be more effective at destroying the Second Amendment. Instead, though, we got crickets.

Students are smort!-----UCLA BANS all single-use plastics

UCLA BANS all single-use plastics

  • UCLA has announced a policy development that would completely ban single-use plastics, and replace them with compostables and other alternatives.
  • Similar to a UC-wide policy decision, UCLA shortened its deadlines and more aggressive goals.

"...The new policy will ultimately remove all single-use plastics ranging from cups and cup lids, plastic bags, utensils, bowls, and other “food accessory” items.

...“As a biology major, I’ve studied how critical a healthy ocean is in fighting climate change, in carbon capture, biodiversity and as an ecosystem,” said UCLA junior, Sithara Menon, chair of the CALPIRG Students UCLA chapter.
“It’s important, as students, that we take what we learn and use it, and I can do that starting here on this campus, helping reduce our plastic addiction.”...

AP Confirms: Democrats Are Lying to the Public About Coronavirus Readiness

AP Confirms: Democrats Are Lying to the Public About Coronavirus Readiness:

Image result for CDC HeadquartersAn Associated Press fact check confirms what Breitbart News reported earlier this week: that Democrat presidential candidates are falsely claiming that President Donald Trump cut funding and personnel needed to fight coronavirus.
On Tuesday, Breitbart News fact-checked “mostly false” claims by former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg during the Democrat debate in South Carolina. Bloomberg claimed that Trump had “fired” a pandemic specialist at the White House, and “defunded” the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The implication: Trump was to blame for the spread of coronavirus — even though there have been just over a dozen cases and no fatalities in the U.S.

Perfect example of the fake-news media. And this is AP!---India says US politicizing religious riots in which 30 died

Image result for never trust the liberal mediaOK, here's why this is another example of the half-truth (sophistry) being used by the lib-media to distract us deplorables from what really happened.
  • Fact #1: Trump's visit to India was an unparalleled triumph.
  • Fact #2: "...a U.S. government commission" did NOT make the comments. A liberal, Trump-hating, Nancy Pelosi-appointed hack made the comments to her comrades in the press. Her comments were not official statements from ANY government agency.
  • Fact #3: The Indian minister's quoted response was to another lying reporter's fake question accusing a US commission of making, the flawed "accusations". 
  • Fact #4: The AP created a fake headline to deflect us from celebrating an American (President Trump) foreign policy success. 
  • Fact #5 And tried to create their own fake news: "another gaff from the fools surrounding the dufus who MUST BE REMOVED FROM OFFICE". 
In summary, they lied about the entire "event".

India says US politicizing religious riots in which 30 died
NEW DELHI (AP) — India accused a U.S. government commission of politicizing communal violence in New Delhi that killed at least 30 people and injured more than 200 as President Donald Trump was visiting the country.
...On Wednesday, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom said it was deeply troubled by the violence and cited accounts that police had not intervened in attacks against Muslims, which police and India’s federal government have denied.
“The government is failing in its duty to protect its citizens,” Commissioner Anurima Bhargava said.
India’s External Affairs Ministry said the commission’s comments (note there are no "s around that) were “factually inaccurate and misleading” and appeared to be “aimed at politicizing the issue.”
...Trump’s first state visit to India included a lavish reception in Modi’s home state of Gujarat and talks with the Indian leader, but the U.S. leader said they didn’t discuss the violence. Trump declined to comment about the citizenship law, saying he wanted to leave that to India, before departing.
This is Commissioner Anurima Bhargava
"Anurima Bhargava, Commissioner
Appointed by: Honorable Nancy Pelosi (D), House Leader, for a term expiring in May 2020.
Anurima Bhargava is a civil rights lawyer with extensive experience in various roles advocating for members of underrepresented communities. Before founding Anthem of Us, where she currently serves as President, Bhargava was the Chief of the Educational Opportunities Section of the Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice, where she led the Division’s efforts to provide equal educational opportunities for all students.

Despite widespread condemnation by the members of the Democratic Party — including U.S. representatives, presidential candidates and even a DNC spokesperson — no Democratic lawmakers voted to let the resolution move forward.
Democratic Florida Reps. Donna Shalala and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell issued scathing public statements against Sanders’s comments, but both lawmakers on Thursday notably skipped the vote, allowing them to avoid a decision on the resolution.

"Tom Friedman screamed out to his readers in the New York Times this morning in panic. 
He told them the Orange Man will win if we don't do something. 
We gotta do something. Now, now, now.
He sees the problem as a divided Democrat Party.
He is totally wrong, but his solution was so simplistic that it amused me. 
He said build a Team of Rivals, the phrase Gore Vidal used to describe Lincoln's cabinet.
...Friedman's prescription was to have the nominee (Mini Mike or Breadline Bernie) tell the nation, "I want people to know that if I am the Democratic nominee these will be my cabinet choices — my team of rivals. 
  • I want Amy Klobuchar as my vice president. Her decency, experience and moderation will be greatly appreciated across America and particularly in the Midwest."Translation: we need a woman to balance the ticket, and she is the least insane choice available.
  • Going further, the nominee would say, "I want Mike Bloomberg (or Bernie Sanders) as my secretary of the Treasury."Only in Friedmandonia would a capitalist CEO be interchangeable with a communist congressional lifer...
  • More!
...But this is a bad prescription for the wrong problem.
Democrats are united as never before
The debates and the recent assemblages of legislatures in New York state and Virginia have made that clear.

  • They stand for:
  • Open borders
  • Gun confiscation
  • Infanticide
  • Reparations
  • Welshing on student loans
  • Wealth confiscation
  • Ending bail
  • Pooping in the streets
  • Banning automobiles
  • Banning plastic
None of those things appeals to most Americans.

Oregon Engineer Makes History With New Traffic Light Timing Formula - Institute for Justice
Image result for avoid frustrating red light tickets"Today, the Institute of Transportation Engineers (ITE) formally announced that it voted to adopt a new formula for determining the timing of traffic lights.
The vote vindicates the theory of Mats Järlström, who was fined $500 by the Oregon State Board of Examiners for Engineering and Land Surveying for publicly criticizing traffic light timing without first obtaining a professional engineering license.
The ITE’s vote updates a 55-year-old equation with Mats’s formula, which takes into account the time drivers need to slow down when making a turn in an intersection.
The vote could have wide-ranging, international ramifications by giving drivers a little more time to get through intersections (and in some cases, avoid frustrating red light tickets)..."

Image result for flickr commons images Border WallA 20-mile section of new border wall built near El Paso, Texas, cut illegal crossings by more than 80%, the government’s top border official told Congress on Thursday.
Mark Morgan, acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, said the key is not just the border wall but the entire system being built, with roads and lighting and, in some cases, multiple layers of fencing.
He said that’s giving agents more time to get to spots where breakthroughs happen, and when they can respond they can make arrests or force people to retreat back into Mexico.

“Socialism has failed everywhere it’s ever been tried,” Haley said. “Instead of prosperity, it leads to poverty.”
“Instead of opportunity, it creates dependency. Instead of liberty, it means oppression at home and often means aggression abroad instead of hope for a better tomorrow,” she said.
She pointed out that though countries around the world suffer from socialism, “socialism has become trendy in parts of America these days,” drawing on Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s affinity for socialism.

'Progressivism' Versus Progress | The Pipeline

'Progressivism' Versus Progress | The Pipeline
"A cry is going up across the world— in Cambridge England, in Germany, and above all in Canada. It’s the cry heard down the ages from the Common People, the Reasonable Person, the Over-burdened Taxpayer, the Forgotten Man, the Silent Majority, and whoever is feeling his shoes pinching and his belt tightening.
That cry today is more puzzled and poignant than usual because it expresses bafflement as well as indignation.
That cry is: “What the hell’s going on?
The note of inquiry is entirely justified.

...Nevertheless, the environmental history of socialism provides a very weak argument for getting rid of capitalism. 

Yet, it is where most solutions to the climate emergency end up and, not coincidentally, where they begin too.
Why so?
XR’s multiplication of justifications for their hooliganism is explicable when you realize that their predictions of doom keep not happening. 

And when any particular doom doesn’t happen, the climate seer needs to invent another likely catastrophe to justify his activism. 
Dr. Madsen Pirie, founder of the Adam Smith Institute in London, gave a fairly comprehensive list of such predictions here.
  • 1966: Oil will run out in ten years
  • 1967: Famines by 1975
  • 1968: Worldwide overpopulation
  • 1970: World's natural resources run out
  • 1970: Ice Age by 2000
  • 1970: Water rationing in US by 1974, food rationing by 1980
  • 1971: New ice age by 2020 or 2030
  • 1974: Satellites show new ice age near
  • 1976: Scientific consensus that Earth is cooling.
  • 1978: 30-year cooling trend continues
  • 1980: Acid rain kills life in lakes
  • 1980: Peak oil in 2000
  • 1988: Regional droughts by 1990s
  • 1988: Maldives underwater by 2018
  • 1989: Nations will be wiped out if nothing done by 2000
  • 2000: Children won’t know what snow is
  • 2002: Peak Oil in 2010
  • 2002: Famine in 10 years unless we stop eating fish, meat, and dairy products
  • 2004: Britain will be Siberia by 2020
  • 2008: Arctic will be ice free by 2018
  • 2008: Al Gore predicts ice-free Arctic by 2013
  • 2009: Prince Charles says we have 96 months to save the world
  • 2009: Gordon Brown says we have 50 days to "save the planet from catastrophe"
  • 2013: Arctic ice-free by 2015
  • 2014: Only 500 days before ‘climate chaos’
Of course, Pirie was writing in 2014; the list will be longer now.
But however often the predictions are falsified, the soothsayers never admit error. 
Like the religious lunatics who assemble on a mountain to witness the Apocalypse in this Peter Cook sketch, their conclusion is always: “Okay, next week, same time, same place. We must get a winner some time.”

How Iran's Regime Spread Coronavirus to the Middle East :: Middle East Forum

How Iran's Regime Spread Coronavirus to the Middle East :: Middle East Forum
See the source image"On Monday, Iranian official Ahmad Amirabadi said there have been up to 50 deaths in Iran from coronavirus
The regime did what it knows how to do best: It sought to silence him and condemn him for spreading the news, claiming that only 12 had died from the virus and that there were only 61 cases in the country.
However, for five days Iran has known that there were likely more cases concentrated in the holy city of Qom, where religious pilgrims gather.
Iranians have been largely left in the dark since last Wednesday, when two deaths were announced in the Islamic Republic from coronavirus. The regime wanted elections to go well on February 21, so it sought to prevent any news of the virus for days.
Iranians have been largely left in the dark about the local spread of the virus.
By Saturday it was too late, and the country moved to shut down schools and universities. 
But Iranians and other pilgrims who came to Qom and became sick with the virus were already on the move.
They flew back to Iraq's Najaf and via Dubai to Bahrain, as well as arriving in Kuwait and Oman. Iran did not inform its neighbors until it was too late. 
Last Friday, Turkish government officials were already warning that there might be 750 cases in Iran..."

Revealing Bernie’s dark side — one 1980s quote at a time - Glenn Beck:

Image result for flickr commons images bernie sandersFor starters, Sanders had (during the height of the Soviet Union) a very cozy relationship with people who openly advocated for Marxism and communism. He was an elector for the Socialist Workers Party and promoted the party's presidential candidates in 1980 and 1984.
To say the Socialist Workers Party was radical would be a tremendous understatement. It was widely known SWP was a communist organization mostly dedicated to the teachings of Marx and Leon Trotsky, one of the leaders of the Russian Revolution.
Among other radical things I've discovered in interviews Sanders conducted with the SWP's newspaper — appropriately named The Militant (seriously, you can't make this stuff up) — is a statement by Sanders published in June 1981 suggesting that some police departments "are dominated by fascists and Nazis," a comment that is just now being rediscovered for the first time in decades.
