Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘The World is Going to End in 12 Years if We Don’t Address Climate Change’

“This is our World War II.”

Devout socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) says that the world will stop spinning in a dozen years if “climate change” is left unchecked. Ocasio-Cortez is pushing a new plan in Congress she calls her “Green New Deal” to confront climate matters.

“I think that the part of it that is generational is that millennials and Gen-Z and all these folks that come after us are looking up and we’re like, ‘the world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is-your biggest issue is ‘how are we going to pay for it?’“ Ocasio-Cortez said. “And, like, this is the war-this is our World War II.”

Charlie Kirk: Blexit is the ‘Beginning of the End of the Democrat Party’

Charlie Kirk told Breitbart News on Sunday that the Blexit movement, led by Candace Owens, is “the beginning of the end of the Democrat Party.”

“I would like to see nothing more than the Left be held accountable for all the horrible things they’ve done to the black community — the lies, the misrepresentations, the ravaging of their communities,” said Kirk to Breitbart News in Los Angeles, California, at Owens’ very first Blexit event of 2019.

“Look, I come from Chicago, which is plagued by gun violence, plagued by poverty,” continued Kirk, “We have Democrat city council members, only Democrat city council members, only Democrat congressmen. The last Republican mayor was in 1931, and yet they still blame Republicans for all their problems.”

“The Democrats own the problems of the black community, and it’s going to be Donald Trump, it’s going to be free markets, it’s going to be conservatives, that are finally going to make this community prosperous again,” said Kirk, “Blexit is really the beginning of the end of the Democrat Party.”

Climate Hysterics Skyrocket

Call it climate one-upmanship. It seems everyone has to outdo previous climate chaos rhetoric.

The “climate crisis” is the “existential threat of our time,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi told her House colleagues. We must “end the inaction and denial of science that threaten the planet and the future.”

Former California Governor Jerry Brown solemnly intoned that America has “an enemy, though different, but perhaps very much devastating in a similar way” as the Nazis in World War II.

Not to be outdone, two PhDs writing in Psychology Today declared that “the human race faces extinction” if we don’t stop burning fossil fuels. And yet “even people who experience extreme weather events often still refuse to report the experiences as a manifestation of climate change.” Psychologists, they lament, “have never had to face denial on this scale before.”…

All this headline-grabbing gloom and doom, however, is backed up by little more than computer models, obstinate assertions that the science is settled, and a steady litany of claims that temperatures, tornadoes, hurricanes, droughts et cetera are unprecedented, worse than ever before, and due to fossil fuels.

And on the basis of these hysterics, we are supposed to give up the carbon-based fuels that provide over 80% of US and global energy, gladly reduce our living standards-and put our jobs and economy at the mercy of expensive, unreliable, weather dependent, pseudo-renewable wind, solar and biofuel energy.

As in any civil or criminal trial, the burden of proof is on the accusers and prosecutors who want to sentence fossil fuels to oblivion. They need to provide more than blood-curdling charges, opening statements and summations. They need to provide convincing real-world evidence to prove their case.

They have refused to do so. They ignore the way rising atmospheric carbon-dioxide is spurring plant growth and greening the planet. They blame every extreme weather event on fossil fuel emissions, but cannot explain the Medieval Warm Period, Little Ice Age or extreme weather events decades or centuries ago-or why we have had fewer extreme weather events in recent decades. They simply resort to trial in media and other forums where they can exclude exculpatory evidence, bar any case for the fossil fuel defense, and prevent any cross-examination of their witnesses, assertions and make-believe evidence.

Covington Catholic Boys Give First Public Interview…set Record Straight About What Really Happened [Video]

Covington Catholic students were confused and not sure how to react when Native American Nathaniel Phillips broke into their group on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial and began loudly banging his drum in their faces. Two Covington Catholic boys are now speaking out for the first time since the incident.

The Covington High School boys were part of a group who were wearing MAGA hats while waiting for their bus to pick them up and take them home after partaking in the March for Life on Saturday. The lives of the Covington Catholic boys were forever changed when Phillips made the decision to confront them and then proceeded to lie about what happened to the media when his confrontation was caught on video, saying things like the boys were chanting, “Build the wall!” A two-hour video that surfaced later in the day, showing the entire exchange from start to finish proves the boys never chanted, “Build the wall” and were [never] involved in anything that could be construed as racist or even inappropriate.

Homeschooling Produces Better-Educated, More-Tolerant Kids. Politicians Hate That

There’s no better sign of success than an escalation in attacks by your enemies. Based on such evidence, homeschooling is enjoying a boom, as growing numbers of families with diverse backgrounds, philosophies, and approaches abandon government-controlled schools in favor of taking responsibility for their own children’s education. As they do so, they’re coming under assault from officials panicking over the number of people slipping from their grasp.

There’s little doubt that homeschooling is an increasingly popular option. “From 1999 to 2012, the percentage of students who were homeschooled doubled, from an estimated 1.7 percent to 3.4 percent,” reports the National Center for Education Statistics. While the government agency suggests that growth has leveled off since then, other researchers say data is hard to come by, since many states simply don’t count people who homeschool.

Native Activist Who Harassed Catholic Teens Identified as Actor From 2012 Skrillex Video About Attacking Police

The point is this: Phillips is not simply a random Native man who was accosted by “racist” MAGA-hat wearing teens, as the mainstream press has reported. He is connected to leftist activists who donate large sums to leftist causes. And now, he is personally fundraising off the mainstream press’ misdeeds.

Given that the full, unedited video of the interaction between Phillips and the students shows that Phillips clearly approached the students, and given that he is connected to left-wing social justice causes, one could conclude that he targeted the teenagers for their support of President Donald J. Trump. Yet the mainstream press narrative is exactly the opposite — that the boys targeted Phillips.

Three Questions About the Second Amendment

by Edwin Vieira Jr.

Secently, some friends of the Second Amendment posed three questions to me, the answers to which I consider of great importance —

I. Why is the recent ban on “bump stocks” so important?

First, in “the bump-stock ban” the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (“BATFE”) has jury rigged a precedent for its “redefinition” of whatever statutory terms, originally defined by Congress, the unelected bureaucrats haunting the agency’s offices want to expand, contract, or otherwise twist out of shape by linguistic tricks. It would be effrontery enough for any mere “administrative agency” to arrogate unto itself in any degree-worse yet, to usurp outright-the exclusive constitutional authority of Congress to rewrite the laws of the United States. But in the case of the BATFE in particular it is intolerable. For the BATFE has proven itself to be a rogue establishment with a strong, persistent, and often irrational bias against ordinary Americans’ exercise of their rights under the Second Amendment. (The recent scandal of so-called “gun walking” under the agency’s code-name “Fast and Furious” is merely the most notorious of these outrages.) So the BATFE can be expected to spew out more “redefinitions” of this ilk as time goes by-especially if (or perhaps when) the Democratic Party gains control of the White House in the 2020 elections.

Second, the “bump-stock ban” can easily be extended far beyond “bump stocks” themselves. In pertinent part, the BATFE’s new regulation reads as follows:…

II. What were the Founders trying to achieve when they adopted the Second Amendment?

The Founders certainly did not have in mind the contemporary misinterpretation of the last fourteen words of the Second Amendment which focuses on a so-called “individual right” to “keep and bear Arms” for the purpose of personal self-defense alone. They knew perfectly well that the right of self-defense did not need a constitutional Amendment for its recognition, protection, or exercise. For, in the words of Sir William Blackstone, the preëminent commentator on the laws of England at that time, “[s]elf defense * * * is justly called the primary law of nature, so it is not, neither can it be in fact, taken away by the law of society.” Commentaries on the Laws of England (American Edition, 1772), Volume 3, at 4.

Furthermore, the Founders would have interpreted the Second Amendment in just the way they wrote it: namely, treating all of its twenty-seven words as inextricable parts of a single coherent sentence. Read in that way (as every sentence in the English language must be read), the Amendment’s meaning is self-evident. Its goal is “a free State”. To achieve this end, “security” is indispensable. The “necessary” means to provide “security” is “[a] well regulated Militia”. “[T]he right of the people to keep and bear Arms” is of central instrumentality in the operation of “[a] well regulated Militia”, and through the Militia is “necessary to the security of a free State”. For which reason that “right * * * shall not be infringed”-and without any exception, too, inasmuch as what the Constitution declares to be “necessary” can never be deemed to be “unnecessary”. Thus, the Second Amendment guarantees not only “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms”, but also, through the people’s permanent possession of suitable “Arms”, their right at all times to serve in “well regulated Militia” as the defenders of “a free State”.

The Founders’ primary concern was that Congress might default on its duty in Article I, Section 8, Clause 16 of the Constitution “[t]o provide for * * * arming * * * the Militia”. But the Second Amendment also covered the possibility that the States themselves might be no less remiss. As is all too evident today, the Founders’ fears have been proven prescient as to both Congress and the States.

Twitter Still Hasn’t Banned Accounts That Threatened High School Kids

Following Breitbart News’ article on verified Twitter accounts using Jack Dorsey’s platform to encourage violence against conservative high school kids, the company has said it has “taken action” against the tweets that were flagged in Breitbart’s article. But its actions haven’t scratched the surface of real accountability.

Twitter has yet to ban — or even de-verify — any of the accounts that threatened the Covington Catholic high school kids at the center of the mainstream media fake news smears this weekend. These include a leftist D.J who promised to put $1,000 into a crowd-fund to punch one of the kids “right in the f***ing mouth.”

Windows 98 Icons Are Great

In my opinion, the UI design of Windows peaked in the late 1990s. The classic, utilitarian icons from Windows 98 just look amazing.

Why are they so good?

Rather than some designer’s flashy vision of the future, Windows 98 icons made the operating system feel like a place to get real work done. They had hard edges, soft colors and easy-to-recognize symbols.

It’s obvious that the icons were meticulously crafted. Each 256-color .ico file includes a pixel-perfect 16×16, 32×32 and 48×48 version that looks equally good on the taskbar and desktop.

Maybe its nostalgia, but I still prefer the classic icons of Windows 98 over the shiny, drop-shadowed icons of later years. You can download the entire Windows 98 collection of .ico files here.

France Among Those Who Take Wealth From Africa Says Salvini

Minister comments after Paris summoned envoy over Di Maio remark

(ANSA) — Rome, January 22 — Deputy Premier and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Tuesday that France had no reason to be upset after Paris summoned the Italian ambassador over comments made by fellow Deputy Premier Luigi Di Maio about French policy in Africa. Labour and Industry Minister and 5-Star Movement (M5S) leader Di Maio said France allegedly “impoverished” Africa with what he called the “franc of the colonies”, adding that “in order to keep the Africans in Africa, it would be enough for the French to stay home”.

Salvini suggested he did not think this was unjustified.

“The migrant problem has many causes,” League leader Salvini told Mediaset television.

“In Africa some take away wealth from the people and the continent and France is among them”.

The minister added that, in Libya, France’s “interests are the opposite of Italy’s” arguing that Paris has “no interest in stabilizing the situation”. “(France) has little to get angry about because it has turned back thousands of migrants, including women and children, at the border,” he continued.

“I don’t take lessons on humanity and generosity from (French President Emmanuel) Macron”.

“They Will Not Silence Me”: McAfee Vows to Wage Presidential Campaign From Venezuela as He Flees Tax-Evasion Charges

Since he stopped issuing promo-tweets about ICOs (after allegedly being threatened by the SEC), one-time PC security pioneer turned crypto true believer has been relatively quiet (emphasis on relatively). To wit, he hasn’t issued any more outrageous promises about his willingness to consume a certain appendage in front of a live audience should the price of bitcoin not eclipse a certain level, and he hasn’t elaborated on an anecdote detailing his penchant for sexual congress with one of the ocean’s mightiest mammals.

Pence Urges Venezuelans to Rise Up Against “Dictator” Maduro After Failed Military Revolt

It appears the White House is ready to stoke the flames of anti-Maduro unrest following Monday’s dramatic failed military revoltlaunched by 27 low-ranking officers and their subsequent arrests in the Cotiza neighborhood of Caracas, which sparked overnight protests and sporadic clashes with police after opposition leader Juan Guaido made a broad appeal to the military in a speech, urging them to demand Maduro step down. Guaido and other opposition leaders in the National Assembly have declared Wednesday a nation-wide protest day seeking to topple the regime — itself a historic date commemorating the end of Venezuela’s military dictatorship in 1958.

Matteo Salvini: ‘I Am Proud’ to Have Halted Illegal Immigration

Italy’s indomitable interior minister Matteo Salvini said Tuesday he is “proud” to have put an end to illegal immigration in Italy.

“You enter Italy by saying ‘May I come in’ and ‘Please,’“ Mr. Salvini said in a Tweet to his followers, explaining that by combatting illegal immigration he was also fighting human trafficking and the drug trade.

Decrying smugglers and human traffickers, Salvini said he had evidence that “with the money they make-around 3,000 euro for every person they put on the boat-they buy arms and drugs. So stopping the trafficking of human beings does not just mean stopping immigration, but it also means blocking weapon and drug trafficking.”

#StandWithCovington and the Unborn

Over the course of the past 72 hours, students at Covington Catholic High School have been met with death threats, doxxing, and defamation. One video — taken completely out of context — has completely changed the lives of the boys of Covington Catholic.

They’ve been labeled racists and white supremacists — even baby bigots.

However, as this episode has played out, new videos have emerged, directly in conflict with the narrative of the mainstream media. It was not the students from Covington who approached the Native American. It was the Native American who approached the students from Covington. It was not the students from Covington who chanted “Build The Wall”. It was, however, one of the Native Americans who told the students from Covington to “go back to Europe”. It was not the students from Covington who instigated this fiasco. It was Native American activist, Nathan Phillips.

In their honor and alongside my newfound friends at Covington, I have created this GoFundMe campaign.

  1. The Assembly today expressed concern about the fact that “Sharia law, including provisions which are in clear contradiction with the European Convention on Human Rights, were applied either officially or unofficially in several member States”.

    …According to PACE, Albania, Azerbaijan and Turkey should consider distancing themselves from the Cairo Declaration and make use of all available means to ensure that the latter has no effect on their domestic legal orders.

    http://assembly.coe.int/nw/xml/News/News-View-EN.asp?newsid=7339&lang=2
    ======================
    Will countries take note of these recommendations?
    The question is rhetorical.

    • Azerbaijan and Kyrgyzstan still have a lot of media in Russian. They are very skeptical of this decision. They wrote that sharia is perfect legislation.
      PACE has become a meaningless organization – it has no means of influence.

  2. “In other news, according to sources in the British government, Queen Elizabeth may be asked to block any parliamentary legislation intended to prevent the implementation of Brexit.”

    I’m no historian but I think that may be the first time since Charles I tried to assume primacy over Parliament.

    Interesting times.

    May be wrong of course.

  3. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: ‘The World is Going to End in 12 Years if We Don’t Address Climate Change’

    There has recently been a meme floating around the Interweb claiming that physicists have discovered the densest element known to man and that they have named it PELOSIUM.

    Now I hear on the physics grapevine that they’ve found another element even denser than Pelosium. They are going to call it CORTEZIUM.

    Apparently, the powerful mind after which it is to be named was recently dining out at a British themed Pub in the grounds of Georgetown University. When she was asked by the server if she would like some Horseradish with her beef, she replied ‘What part of the horse does it come from?’

    The future is in the hands of people even more stupid than the lot they replaced.

    • That twit who claims the world is ending in twelve years is currently favored by a majority of Democrats. However, I see that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is known by some wags as “Occasional Cortex”…with her background as a bartender, she’ll make a fine legislator.

    • If you don’t have a strong positive personal opinion regarding Ms [Ocatavio-Cortez], call her the “Sarah Palin of the left” if you want to see your left wing friends blow a gasket

  4. I realized last year that the so called Women’s March was no such thing: it was an anti-Trump Hatefest. It looks like it’s turning into an anti-men Hatefest too.

    But why is it called Fourth Wave? I thought the Third Wave was lunatic enough.

  5. == QUOTE == a Native American drummer named Nathan Phillips, a.k.a. “Tom-Tom McCoot” ==UNQUOTE==

    A clever nickname for an old coot who beats a tom-tom. I wonder how many readers will understand the Haitian reference to

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonton_Macoute

    (about as many as understand the reference to “Baby Doc” Trudeau).

  6. I do not remember reading it here.

    Europeans called for free treatment of migrants

    The European authorities should provide migrants with more access to health care. This was stated by the head of the Migration and Health program of the World Health Organization (WHO), Santino Severoni, reports The Local.

    “To improve the health of migrants, it is important to help them with access to the basic services of doctors,” said Severoni. According to WHO, in 53 countries in the European region, migrants make up about 10 percent of the population – 90.7 million of 920 million people.

  7. President Trump should be inviting Nathan Phillips to the White House and even giving him assistance to begin Head Start programs for Omaha Tribes in Iowa and Nebraska. But hey, I understand how the echo chamber of cultural ignorance works. Right? Think of the coup that President Trump would get shaking hands with both Sandmann and Nathan. Really, just go ahead. I can hear the heads exploding even now.

    Look this up: Counting Coup – Native Americans. Nathan Phillips was ‘counting coup’, the Native American practice of showing real bravery in the face of an enemy by getting close, in their face, and touching them with some non-lethal implement such as a drum stick beating on a drum. He even acknowledged that Sandmann had won out on that particular ‘counting coup’ between them.

    Nathan Phillips actually did everyone a huge favor in drawing out the lying media and ravenous leftists who all ended up eating crow. If it hadn’t been for Nathan Phillips they’d all wouldn’t be running away from their with the tails between their legs.

  8. The Covington affair has shocked many people from their somnolence, their apathy, and their passive acceptance of our news media. Not only in America, but here in Canada too, major broadcasters have been oh-so-quick to demonize the Covington boys, white and Christian, in the most despicable of ways. As well, celebrities, media personalities, even lawyers at the QC (Queen’s Counsel) level, have shown their true colours by their eagerness to hurl insults at these boys, without regard for video evidence. Some have half-heartedly retracted their poisoned denouncements, but the damage has been done.

    Compare and contrast the reaction to the teenager, Nicholas Sandmann, who stood still and silent while a Native elder drummed in his face, with our Canadian media’s fawning apologetics for convicted murderer, Omar Khadr—a “child soldier” who killed one American soldier and blinded another. The former has been demonized; the latter has been virtually idolized by the left, and awarded 10.5 million dollars for his “unjust” treatment.

    The shameful display of the past few days should lead our media to some painful introspection. This should never be forgotten.

  9. re: teen fined for writing ‘bloody foreigner

    the judge stated:

    “..The comment, which was widely spread, was such that it could be expected to subject Jimmy Durmaz to the contempt of others…”

    Would he not also be subject to contempt if he played poorly and a fan writes: “you’re a useless player”.

    So, has the law now been secrectly expanded to include ANY remark which may create contempt?

    The language police will have to then bring microphones to the stadiums. They will be quite busy on game day if they want to listen to the thousands of fans screaming every racist, sexist and antagonistic remark known to man.

    Clog the system with so many infractions that the system will fall apart.
