Congress Now Funding ‘Controversial’ Geoengineering ‘Plan B’ To Spray Particles in the Sky to Cool Earth

The top climate change scientist for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) said he has received $4 million from Congress and permission from his agency to study two emergency—and controversial—methods to cool the Earth if the U.S. and other nations fail to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions. David Fahey, director of the Chemical Sciences Division of NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory, told his staff yesterday that the federal government is ready to examine the science behind “geoengineering”—or what he dubbed a “Plan B” for climate change.

Fahey said he has received backing to explore two approaches.

One is to inject sulfur dioxide or a similar aerosol into the stratosphere to help shade the Earth from more intense sunlight. It is patterned after a natural solution: volcanic eruptions, which have been found to cool the Earth by emitting huge clouds of sulfur dioxide.

The second approach would use an aerosol of sea salt particles to improve the ability of low-lying clouds over the ocean to act as shade.

Congressional Candidate Laura Loomer Files Complaint With FEC Regarding Political Censorship

Congressional candidate Laura Loomer has filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission against Twitter, alleging that the social network is illegally supporting her electoral opponent.

Loomer’s history

Twitter says that breaking the rules of its social networks warrants banning no matter who you are.

However, journalist Laura Loomer believes that now that she is a candidate for Congress, her ban should be revoked in order to maintain a fair election.

Loomer, who is participating in the Republican primaries to be the representative of Florida’s 21 Congressional District, said that maintaining her ban on Twitter is illegal since this limits her communication with voters through the social network.

Her main complaint is that her political opponents can use the platform.

‘Extreme Action: ‘ Project Veritas Unearths More Radical Bernie Sanders Staffers

Apparently it isn’t that tough to find radical left-wing staffers on the Bernie Sanders presidential primary campaign.

Project Veritas released Tuesday the third video in its #Expose2020 series featuring hidden-camera footage of two South Carolina field organizers—paid staff, not volunteers—expressing support for upending the U.S. government and overthrowing capitalism.

A field organizer identified as Daniel Taylor said in the hidden-camera footage that even if Mr. Sanders wins the Democratic nomination and the presidency, there may still be the need for “extreme action.”

Grammys 2020 Ratings Plummet to All Time Low With a Massive 53 Percent Drop Since 2012

The stage was set on fire when artists from all around the world came under one roof for the prestigious Grammy 2020 Awards in Los Angeles and dominated the night with collaboration performances, tributes to Kobe Bryant, and surprising trophy handouts. Yet the biggest night fell off enough to hit a new low in the ratings. The show’s viewership has continued to fall in recent years, though it cannot be deemed as the worst showing of the Grammys as the record is still held by 2006’s instalment of the popular awards function which managed to hit a specific new low point at the time.

Harvey Weinstein Trial: Roommate Backs Mimi Haleyi’s Accusation, Says ‘It Sounded Like Rape’

NEW YORK — The Harvey Weinstein sex crimes trial resumed Tuesday when a witness corroborated testimony by former production assistant Miriam “Mimi” Haleyi, who sobbed as she told jurors Monday that she tried to fight off the movie mogul while he sexually assaulted her at his New York City apartment in 2006.

Elizabeth Entin, who was Haleyi’s roommate at the time, said Haleyi told her she had gone to Weinstein’s apartment assuming it was for a work-related meeting.

“And she came in, and he started rubbing her shoulders, kissing her, and she said no, no, and he wouldn’t stop, and she said, ‘I’m on my period,’ and he said, ‘I don’t care,’ at which point, he threw her down … pulled off her underwear and started (assaulting) her as she was saying no,” Entin said.

How to End House Impeachment Games: Senate Impeachment Trial Rules — the ‘Kill Switch, ‘ Spicer

The Democrats have been out to get Donald Trump since before he even took office. The Dems have never been able to accept the defeat of their precious Hillary at the hands of a political rube, Donald John Trump. So the Dems and their close allies, the mainstream lamestream media took action, they attacked and spied on the Trump campaign — Trump still won. Trump became the 45th president, and the Demonrats and the media upped the attacks on him without mercy. Then along comes the completely spurious Mueller investigation.

Dead. On. Arrival.

The Muller investigation was as partisan as they come, wasted millions (about 25 million) of dollars of tax money, and turned up zero evidence of wrongdoing by President Trump.

Since that did not work, the Dems proceeded to accuse Trump of interfering in the investigation. That failed too. Then the ruckus started over Ukraine. No evidence of wrongdoing there either. Funny thing — several Democrats are implicated in wrongdoing concerning Ukraine, I see no investigations into this whatsoever. Typical Saul Alinsky tactics, accuse the opposition of what you yourself are guilty of.

Impeachment — Really TWO TRIALS

Driving home from dropping the progeny at school I was listening to my favorite morning talk show, The Kuhner Report . He had a caller with whom, in their interaction, this idea came out: there aretwo trials here.

The Democrats, master propagandists that they are, are not trying to convinceSenators — they’re playing topublic opinion. Trying to increase Trump’s negatives and drive down his approval numbers. Their target audience, with the enemedia’s complicity, is the public… and secondarily the squishy-middle RINOs and NeverTrumpers.

Trump’s defenders, honorable people, are trying a legal trial, presenting facts, reason, logic, precedent, etc., with a target audience of the Senators.

And this is how we lose. Time and again. We keep fighting by Marquis of Queensbury Rules, assuming an honorable opposition who is interested in a rational debate…

Liberal Reporter Goes Crazy on Ted Cruz for Exposing Biden Corruption, Asks if His 9 and 11-Year-Old Children Should be Put in Prison (Video)

Liberal reporters could not stand to listen to GOP Senator Ted Cruz shred the corrupt and criminal Bidens so they kept interrupting him, but one reporter went too far.

Senator Ted Cruz on Monday spoke to the press after Trump’s lawyers went scorched earth on the Biden crime family on day two of their defense in the impeachment trial.

Pam Bondi and Eric Herschmann both exposed Hunter Biden and his pay-to-play schemes in Ukraine and China.

Ted Cruz went off on the Bidens as reporters clamored to defend Hunter and Joe.

Michael Avenatti’s Google Search History Could be Used Against Him in Nike Extortion Trial

Michael Avenatti was once a very well-known California lawyer known for taking up several high-profile cases.

Famous for his notorious spending and overly lavish lifestyle, Avenatti eventually drove his law firm as well as himself to the brink of bankruptcy.

As of now, the hotshot lawyer is awaiting his federal extortion trail all set to begin in the coming week — and his Google search history could play a role.

Best known for representing the Stormy Daniels lawsuit against President Trump, things took an ugly turn for Avenatti when he allegedly threatened to accuse Nike employees of improper conduct if the company fails to pay $1.5 million to his client and a sum between $15 to $25 million for an “internal investigation”.

Mizzou Students Required to Install Location Tracking App So College Can ‘Pinpoint’ Them

New students at the University of Missouri will be required to participate in a tracking program designed to measure and enforce class attendance, according to a new report from The Kansas City Star.

Despite privacy concerns, officials defended the decision as one to the benefit of students, as the school’s athletics department has already been using the same app, SpotterEdu, to track certain student-athletes.

“A student will have to participate in this recording of attendance,” Jim Spain, vice provost for undergraduate studies at MU, said in a statement to The Kansas City Star.

Individual professors have to opt-in to using the app, but once they do, students in those professors’ classes will not be able to opt-out.

O’Keefe Releases Part 4 #Expose2020 — Two Bernie Field Organizers in South Carolina Admit Sanders Campaign Attracts “Truly Radical People”

Project Veritas on Tuesday released part 4 of its #Expose2020 series with an undercover video of two Bernie field organizers in South Carolina admitting the Sanders campaign attracts “truly radical people.”

In the recorded conversation, Mason Baird, a South Carolina Field Organizer elaborated on how he envisions a Bernie Sanders presidency, Veritas reported.

In Baird’s view, creating a militant labor movement that is institutionalized by the federal government would be the best route to consolidate Sanders’ power. Here are the statements Baird made during conversations with a PVA journalist:

“I’ve canvassed with someone whose an Anarchist, and with someone who’s a Marxist/Leninist so we attract radical, truly radical people in the campaign but obviously that’s not outward facing…”

“Um…well, I think the goal is just to build a…you know, build a coalition…so, a lot of people…their politics fall outside of the American norm, so their politics are Marxist/Leninist, they’re Anarchists, so these types of folks they have more of a mind for ‘direct action’ for engaging in politics outside of the electoral system.”

The Establishment Doesn’t Fear Trump, And it Doesn’t Fear Bernie. It Fears You.

The unelected power establishment has ways of ensuring its dominance amid the comings and goings of America’s official elected government; they are perfectly capable of dealing with one man being a less than ideal steward of the empire. What they absolutely cannot deal with, at all, is the prospect of ordinary people finally rising up and using the power of their numbers to force real change. That is what they are really fighting against when they try to sabotage populist candidates: not the candidates themselves, but populism itself.

You wouldn’t know it from reading the billionaire media, but the Yellow Vests protests in France are still going on and have remained widespread for more than a year now. This lack of coverage is partially due to the fact that establishment narrative managers are responsible for conveying the idea that the only governments whose citizens dislike them are those which haven’t been absorbed into the imperial blob like China and Iran. But it’s also because the propagandists don’t want us getting any ideas.

The reason the propagandists work so hard to manufacture the consent of the governed is that they absolutely do require that consent. If enough people decide that the status quo isn’t working for them and begin rising up to force it to change, there’s not really anything the establishment can do to stop them. Right now the only thing keeping people from rising up in this way is the fact that they’ve been successfully propagandized not to, and the propagandists intend to keep it that way.

Tech giant Huawei, a company critics claim is controlled by the Chinese government and uses its advanced, cheap, and pervasive equipment to commit espionage on foreign powers — claims the company strongly denies — will have a so-called limited role in the rollout of next-generation 5G technology, the British government has decided.

UK Schools Warned to Watch Out for “Xenophobia” As Coronavirus Spreads

UK: Instagram Threatens Cancer Survivor With Ban, Suggests Her Reconstructive Surgery Photos Are “Sexual Activity”

What appears to be Instagram’s (human) moderators have hit a UK cancer patient with censorship and a threat of banning her account — for sharing content they understood as showing “sexual activity.”

Instagram is teeming with influencers quite obviously using sex to sell not only their own “brand” and “influence” but also sponsored products; but as long as that intent is not shown in explicit instances of human anatomy — Instagram’s “moderators” don’t seem to mind at all.

But 31-year-old Laura Henrietta is not an influencer. She’s a hairdresser fighting stage three breast cancer, who — having undergone a mastectomy — hoped to use the social platform to encourage others facing similar dire health circumstances to fight on, and show them that reconstructive procedures can go a long way.

Wildfire Jihadis and the Genocide of Cultural and Ancient Sites

Some Westerners have argued that the West does not have problems with Islam but only with violent Islamist extremists. Fourteen hundred years of history demonstrate otherwise. —Samuel P. Huntington, American Political Scientist

Chaplain Austin Miles, a friend of over 23 years, recently authored a commentary on the fires of Australia. He was right, they are not the product of climate change as the socialists in our society claim, but of purposely set fires by Islamists to destroy and instill fear in the nations they wish to occupy and control.

Miles wrote, “The Daily Telegraph reported that they now know how the Australian fires started. You will not see this in most newspapers. They were deliberately started by two Muslim teenagers living in Australia with their parents.

Those teens, Fadi Zraika and his brother, Abraham were seen, laughing as they left court and walked out free. Got that? Walked free after setting Australia on fire.”

For many years, the Al-Qaeda Magazine and the Islamic State (ISIS) have offered instructions to its operatives and followers in the West about how to start large wildfires with timed explosives and how to build remote-controlled bombs. Even ABC News has reported this.

Because of the great difficulty in identifying the perpetrators of the various wildfires, only a few Muslims have been caught and arrested. But considering how many wildfires take place every year, it is not out of line to presume that some of the fires have been Al-Qaeda-inspired. Yes, Al Qaeda promotes forest fire attacks…

In Israel, fires set by Muslims are a common occurrence. Firefighters continue to deal with epidemics of arson in the Haredi community, with groups of young boys repeatedly setting fires in open areas. They would watch the firefighters battling the blaze and taunt them, saying they’d be called back to the same place in less than an hour.

Tears, Fear and Panic Grip China as Coronavirus Spreads

BEIJING — The man burst out with a shout at the last second as medical workers boarded a bus headed to Wuhan: “Wang Yuehua, I love you!”

He sobbed, gasping, as his wife joined an emergency response team headed to the epicenter of the deadly new coronavirus outbreak that has killed at least 130 patients and infected about 5,500 people across China. The number of reported cases is rising at a rate of more than 1,000 a day.

A nurse patted the man on the shoulder as he lowered his head, heaving. Another woman came by and murmured to him as he cried, “I know, I know, I can’t control it.”

The nurse next to him began to weep as well, wiping her face as the bus pulled away, loaded with colleagues and loved ones venturing on a journey into perilous outbreak territory. At least 15 medical workers have been infected and one has died after treating coronavirus patients in Wuhan.

How Radical Enviros Made Africa’s Locust Problem Worse

Two weeks ago a Boeing 737 on final approach to Dire Dawa, Ethiopia, flew into a massive cloud of locusts swarming above the airport.

The insects were sucked into the plane’s engines and splattered across the windshield, blinding the pilots to the runway ahead.

Throttling up to climb above the swarm, the pilot had to depressurize the cabin so he could reach around from the side window and clear the windshield by hand. Diverting to Addis Ababa, the plane was able to land safely.

The locusts that almost brought down the 737 are part of the worst infestation to hit Africa in 75 years.

  1. “Environmentalist Slams Decision to Mulch Fallen Trees Brought Down in Bushfires Blocking Main Roads and Hindering Rescue Efforts — Saying They Should be Left as Shelter for Animals” Sounds reasonable to leave them for shelter purposes, no need to cut them up, just move them to the side of the road. Ought to be faster anyway.

  2. In Africa, they’re eating the birds, by the millions, who ate the worms and insects now preying on Africa to the extent that species are disappearing forever in Europe along ancient flyways.

    • And now they importing this to Europe, whole Africa, take more this savages!!. It will be the same filth and disease like they have in their 3th. World countries.. absolutely outrageous what this EU. So called, leaders ( dumbas ) doing to this continent…

  3. Keep in mind the red chinee have been known to lie. If they say 100 are dead, it is probably more like 1000. If they say 2000 sick, it is more like 20,000. The spread is exponential. Be prepared to hunker down at home for a couple weeks.
    You are in charge of your safety. Government has it’s thumb up it’s backside.

  4. A country supplying Islamists to ISIS and the Russian Federation destroys mosques …

    In Tajikistan, a cinema was made from a large mosque
    https://islamnews.ru/news-v-tadzhikistane-iz-krupnoy-mecheti-sdelali-kinoteatr

    The authorities of the second largest city in Tajikistan decided to turn a large and popular mosque among local residents into a cinema. The beautiful modern building of the Nuri Islom mosque in the city of Khujand in the Sogd region was included in the list of 2000 Allah’s houses that were liquidated throughout the country over the past 3 years under the pretext of “improper documentation”. Closed mosques were eventually turned into restaurants, clothing factories, kindergartens and other institutions. In the Nuri Islom mosque, authorities decided to open a cinema. The head of the department of culture of the Sughd region, Bakhtier Kosimov, noted that such a need arose due to the “shortage of cinemas” in the city. According to Kosimov, quoted by IslamNews with reference to Asia-Plus, after the screenings of films in cinemas, film lovers will meet and discuss watched films – “like in Europe.”
