This reminds me of Albert Arnold Ziffel Gore Jr claiming the polar ice cap would be melted by yet the ice cap is thicker than it has ever been.

Dem. Governor Literally Says We’ve Got Just 59 Days to Save Children from Global Warming

Democrat Governor Jay Inslee of Washington state told his Twitter followers that we only have 59 days left to save future generations from climate change, a.k.a. global warming.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, the governor railed about the devastating effects of climate change and did his part to strike fear into the heart of anyone willing to buy into the notion that human existence has little time left on planet Earth.

 

“We have just 59 days to do our part to save our children from an endless cycle of crop-killing droughts one year, and rivers spilling their banks the next. To save salmon from dying in ever warming rivers, and our forests from being reduced to plumes of ash,” Inslee tweeted.

Nice try.

It is more likely that Inslee was attempting to draw attention to his carbon tax plan, which coincidentally enough he also unveiled Tuesday. This tax would raise an estimated $3.3 billion over the next four years, according to KING-TV.

Former Vice President Al Gore praised Inslee’s plan, proving that birds of a feather flock together.

Speaking of crazy environmentalists, Gore has made some outlandish predictions that should make him ashamed to show his face.

For example, in 2008, Gore suggested that that Arctic sea ice could be completely gone during the summer by 2013.

Gore is not alone in his dire miscalculations.

 

Professor Peter Wadhams, head of the Polar Ocean Physics Group at Cambridge University, predicted in 2016 that Arctic ice could disappear by the end of that year. Spoiler alert: it didn’t.

Moreover, projection models these alarmists use to predict global warming are simply wrong.Global warming advocates have been incorrectly predicting one climate change disaster after another for decades, and yet none of them have materialized.

It is astounding to think that people still believe any cockamamie climate change predictions that people like Inslee make.

Just wait. In 59 days, the governor will have a new global warming scare tactic to throw at the public.

Camera Captures Moment Socialist Venezuela Residents Sees Cow and Starts Salivating

Warning: The video may be disturbing to some viewers.

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”


― Margaret Thatcher

Venezuela is a classic example of this saying.

There is no question that the “socialist paradise” of Venezuela is in dire straights.

The promise of “equality” has resulted in citizens searching through garbage heaps in hopes of finding anything edible, getting into fights over daily necessities.

What has been circulating on the internet the past few days, however, might just trump it all.

In a shocking vide

o recording at the fishing village of Palmarito in Merida, Venezuela, a large of group of men can be seen stoning a cow to death, shouting various exclamations of frustration over their extreme hunger, The Daily Mail reported.

The men stone the cow, and the poor animal does its best do defend itself from assailants, but it’s no use.

The animal is slaughtered at the hands of the starving attackers, who then fall upon it, presumably to distribute its meat for their homes and families.

Take a look at the video below provided by Viral World Gadariya.

Warning: The video may be disturbing to some viewers.

It’s hard to watch, but the time spent watching it is not wasted, and here’s why:

That is what happens to countries dominated by socialism.

Left-wing giant Michael Moore once praised Venezuela for its benevolent socialism. What a sham.

Hugo Chavez declared the oil belonged 2 the ppl. He used the oil $ 2 eliminate 75% of extreme poverty, provide free health & education 4 all

Cali Libs Love Legal Weed, But Then Looked at Sales Tax Cali Libs Love Legal Weed, But Hate Sales Tax

This tax on their weed may show people in Commiefornia the folly of the massive taxation of businesses.

Cali Libs Love Legal Weed, But Then Looked at Sales Tax

 

Though California liberals and libertarians (and a few conservatives as well) love that their state legalized recreational marijuana starting Jan. 1, I doubt any of them appreciate their leftist government’s decision to tax marijuana through the roof.

Countless receipt snapshots posted to social media show marijuana users in California paying tax rates as high as 26.75 percent for their chosen vice.

For instance, one marijuana user from Berkeley who paid $120 for seven grams of a strain of “All Star White OG” marijuana wound up paying a whopping $32.10 in taxes. I’m sorry, but that’s insanely high.

Look:

According to CNN, “Consumers will pay a sales tax ranging from 22.25% to 24.25%, which includes the state excise tax of 15%, and additional state and local sales taxes ranging from 7.25% to 9.25%.”

Marijuana consumers in California could therefore be looking at tax rates as potentially high as 33.5 percent, or basically a third of their purchase price.

Because of these rates, some potheads have already expressed interest in sticking to the marijuana black market or just growing their own pot:

LOOKIT THE PRICE ON THIS LEGAL WEED FAM RT @syconot: Yep! California has legal weed. Think I’ll stick to illegal or grow my own. $17+30% tax/g or $800/lb with no tax. Hardly a choice.

Completing this poll entitles you to our news updates free of charge. You may opt out at anytime. You also agree to our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use.

The beauty of these exorbitant taxes is that they’re providing California’s myriad of liberal potheads with a reality check about the true nature of taxes.

Liberals often demand that legislators tax businesses through the roof so that the rich pay their fair share, whatever that means.

Now cue CNN again, which notes that marijuana retailers must “pay a tax ranging from 1% to 20% of gross receipts, or $1 to $50 per square foot of marijuana plants,” while marijuana farmers “will be taxed $9.25 per ounce for flower, and $2.75 per ounce for leaves.”

And that, my dear California liberals, is why you’re being forced to pay up to 33.5 percent in taxes when you buy your beloved pot: Because the people actually producing and selling the weed are themselves being taxed to the hilt.

And what happens when businesses are overtaxed? Said businesses displace the costs onto you, the consumer. We conservatives generally refer to these concepts as economics, but for your sake, let’s call it marijuananomics, OK?

Here’s the truth: If you want to put a stop to these steep taxes, I suggest you ring up your Democrat lawmakers and demand they cut (not increase) taxes — kind of like how President Donald Trump’s done on the federal level.

Until then, I recommend you suck it up, because ultimately, you get the government you deserve.

Please share this story on Facebook and Twitter and let us know what you think about the tough lesson liberal potheads in California are being taught about economics, aka marijuananomics.

Electric Company Announces Lower Rates Because of Trump’s Corporate Tax Cuts Electric Company Announces Lower Rates Because of Trump’s Corporate Tax Cuts

The middle class is reaping the benefits of the corporate tax cuts inspite of what the DemocRats claim.

Electric Company Announces Lower Rates Because of Trump’s Corporate Tax Cuts

 

Baltimore Gas & Electric Co. is lowering customer rates as a result of the federal tax reform passed by Republicans in December.

The Baltimore Sun reported that the company estimated it would save $82 million under the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, and the average residential electric customers could expect to see their monthly bill drop by $2.31. “Bills will go down by an average of $4.27 a month for customers who buy both electricity and natural gas from BGE,” the Sun reported.

BGE supplies electricity to almost a million customers in Maryland and Washington, D.C.

press release from Pepco Holdings, which includes both Pepco and Delmarva Power, stated that the tax savings were the result of the corporate tax cuts President Donald Trump signed into law in December.

The tax cuts, which lowered the company’s tax rate from 35 percent to 21 percent went into effect on Jan. 1, 2018.

Pepco announced on Jan. 5 that they would file paperwork with the Maryland Public Service Commission in early February. If approved, customers could see lower electric bills beginning in February.

BGE CEO Calvin G. Butler Jr. said the decision was simple.

“We wanted to share those benefits with consumers,” he said, according to the Sun.

President and CEO of Pepco Holdings, Dave Velazquez, said the company was happy to pass along savings to customers.

“We are pleased to provide these savings to our customers, while at the same time ensuring we are making prudent investments in the local power grid to maintain the safe, reliable, and affordable service our customers have come to expect,” he said.

Pepco is not the only corporation to pass savings along to customers. AT&T, BancorpSouth Bank, Bank of America, Comcast, Boeing Co and Wells Fargo are just a few of the many businesses sharing the benefits of the tax legislation with everyday Americans.

It is awesome to see companies share savings this way, and Americans have Republicans to thank for it.

Democrats railed against the tax reform bill every step of the way, claiming it would hurt the middle class and would only benefit businesses and corporate executives.

Once again, Democrats have revealed how deceitful they can be.

Definitely something to keep in mind the next time a Democrat claims the sky is falling.

 

 

Bush Administration Targets Trump’s Mental Health in Sickening Attack Bush Administration Lawyer Demands Trump Be Removed

1 Comment

H/T  Conservative Tribune.

Richard Painter is just one more example of why the swamp will not drain quietly or easily.

 

Bush Administration Targets Trump’s Mental Health in Sickening Attack

 

Whether you call them the Washington establishment or the “D.C. swamp,” political elites are becoming increasingly brazen in their attacks against President Donald Trump.

The latest Beltway insider to publicly complain about the 45th president has close ties to the Bush family, which has had its own spats with Trump in recent years.

An ethics attorney who was part of President George W. Bush’s administration just called Trump “psychologically unfit” and demanded his impeachment — all because the president used Twitter to call out a dictator.

“Richard Painter took to Twitter Tuesday night in a backlash against Trump’s baiting of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, where the president compared his ‘nuclear button’ to Kim’s,” reported The Daily Caller.

Two psychologically unfit men crowing about their nukes. This is not a good way to start the New Year. Congress needs to deal with one of them and the UN Security Council needs to deal with the other. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/948355557022420992 

Painter is currently the vice chairman of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, an oxymoron if there ever was one. He served in the second Bush administration for two years, and has been a public critic of Donald Trump since the inauguration.

It’s not really a surprise that the Bush-era insider is trying to undermine Trump. After all, he sued the president literally three days after the inauguration.

“The Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), including a team of ethics lawyers, allege that Donald Trump is in violation of the U.S. Constitution and plan to file a lawsuit on Monday, January 23,” reported AlterNet almost a year ago.

Painter used Twitter to call for Trump’s impeachment over a laundry list of alleged offenses, most of them involving social media.

“This Tweet is yet more evidence that this man is unfit for office in a democracy. House and Senate Republicans are nuts not to remove him,” Painter wrote on Tuesday.

That particular criticism was in response to a Trump post about wanting to see Clinton collaborator Huma Abedin in jail for giving out classified government passwords.

This Tweet is yet more evidence that this man is unfit for office in a democracy. House and Senate Republicans are nuts not to remove him. https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/948174033882927104 

This isn’t Trump’s first run-in with the GOP establishment or the Bush dynasty. Jeb Bush and Donald Trump had harsh words for each other during the primary, and it was later reported that neither George H. W. Bush nor George W. Bush voted for Trump over Clinton.

More recently, old guard Republicans including Mitt Romney and John McCain have also clashed with Trump, making it clear that the Trump Train has definitely pulled away from the RINO station.

The so-called “swamp” going after Trump for everything he says is nothing new, but there does seem to be renewed vigor — or hysteria, depending on your perspective — in the last few weeks.

Donald Trump is simply being himself, and taking the same bombastic and blunt approach that helped him win the election. He hasn’t changed, but whether or not the voters have remains to be seen.

Trump Saw Troops Standing Guard During Christmas, So He Broke Out the Checkbook Trump Has Special Christmas for Security Detail

Trump Saw Troops Standing Guard During Christmas, So He Broke Out the Checkbook

Being away from friends and family at Christmas time can be tough. But for some military and law enforcement personnel who found themselves working, President Donald Trump made sure this Christmas was a little extra special.

Trump and his family spent Christmas Day at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida. As you can imagine, it took quite a number of personnel to protect the first family.

According to CNN’s Noah Gray, Trump gave military and the Mar-a-Lago security personnel who were tasked with protecting him free meals throughout the day.

Noah wrote, “President Trump is spending Christmas day w/ family at Mar A Lago, while providing feast for military & law enforcement, a source tells me.”

He continued:

The best thing about this story, though, is that the meals were paid for out of Trump’s own pocket.

When Trump does something, you know he’s going to do it all out, and these weren’t skimpy meals. According to Gray, the personnel were given a “‘full Christmas spread’ featuring Turkey & dessert buffet.”

Meals offered from 1p-7p so all shifts working the trip can be served. Includes “a full Christmas spread” featuring Turkey & dessert buffet https://twitter.com/noahgraycnn/status/945400282816663552 

Later on that day, the president took to Twitter to wish everyone a merry Christmas. He wrote, “I hope everyone is having a great Christmas, then tomorrow it’s back to work in order to Make America Great Again (which is happening faster than anyone anticipated)!”

I hope everyone is having a great Christmas, then tomorrow it’s back to work in order to Make America Great Again (which is happening faster than anyone anticipated)!

It’s pretty clear how Trump feels about our military and law enforcement.

Contrast this with the way former President Obama took the opportunity to bash law enforcement officers any chance he got while he was in office.

The country needs a commander in chief who understands and recognizes the sacrifices that our military and law enforcement personnel make on a day-to-day basis.

Antifa Thug Gets Mowed Down by Truck After Calling for Communism in America Antifa Thug Mowed Down by Truck

These little turds can not cross the street but yet they claim they are smart enough to run our country.

The only downside is this little moron did not become a Darwin  Award winner.

Growing up, my parents always taught me to look both ways before crossing the street. Unfortunately for one clueless antifa activist, his parents clearly forgot to impart this knowledge to him — or he just forgot it himself when it counted.

This unnamed antifa goon wound up shattering his hip over the weekend in downtown Portland, Oregon, when he ran out into the middle of the street like a disobedient child and got whacked like a piñata.

According to the Russian news outlet RT, the accident occurred during a counter-protest of an otherwise benign event called “March for Jesus.”

Reportedly organized by Patriot Prayer, a pro-Trump group, the event wound up being hijacked by antifa activists who used a megaphone to tout the alleged virtues of communism.

Among these nimrod activists was our now-hipless hippie, who, after ranting about Christians’ alleged “disdain for human rights” and touting the benefits of communism, chose for some inexplicable reason to run out into the middle of the street.

To be clear, the driver of the vehicle that hit him tried to stop; you can even hear the sound of the breaks in a video recorded by bystanders. But the activist gave him too little time.

Watch what happened here. The real action comes about the 1:25 mark. (Warning: It’s hard to watch.)

Ouch.

While nobody deserves to be whacked like that, the guy admittedly brought it on himself by behaving like a complete idiot.

First, he shouldn’t have been out there harassing Patriot Prayer with his pro-Communist propaganda.

Second, who runs out into the middle of the street like that? Unsupervised children, usually. In fact, just two years ago a young girl who lives just across the street from me almost died when she got hit while running across a nearby road, as reported at the time by my local station, WTVD.

But the guy seen in the video above was not a child; he was a grown man who should have known much better. Of course, he didn’t, and it’s obvious in both his behavior and his rhetoric.

Communism is hell. In an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal published earlier this year, Rhodes Scholar David Satter estimated that roughly 100 million people died during communism’s heyday in the former Soviet Union, as well as China, Cuba, North Korea, Vietnam and Cambodia.

Marian L. Tupy, a senior policy analyst with the Cato Institute, concurred.

“No matter where it was tried, communism has always resulted in mountains of dead bodies,” he wrote this year. “As for socialist economics, it has always resulted in shortages, inefficiency, poverty, and desperation. The verdict of history is clear, but only if people are willing to see it.”

Yes, but for people to see and recognize the truth, they must first open their eyes. Seeing as what happened to the antifa activist who got hit, I’d have to say he just learned this lesson the hard way.

“Christmas Card” Gen. Patton Gave His Men May Be Manliest Card Ever Created

Leave a comment

H/T Conservative Tribune.

General George S.Patton was a man’s man he would be heartbroken to see how sissified our military has become.

When then President-elect Donald Trump announced Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis as his pick for the secretary of defense, he told a crowd in Cincinnati, “They say that he is the closest thing to Gen. George Patton that we have,” according to RealClearPolitics.

That was no small statement. Gen. George Patton looms large over American political history, especially after George C. Scott’s masterful screen performance as the World War II general. Few scenes in American cinematic history are as iconic as Scott, in character, pacing before the American flag and delivering a speech to his men.

And yet, for all of Hollywood’s hero-making, the real man was even more of a legend — and this Christmas card proves just that.

During the holiday season of 1944, Gen. Patton’s Third Army was bogged down in their advance against the Germans. According to WND, Patton was bogged down as he was trying to reach Bastogne, a town in southern Belgium that held by 15,000 American troops but encircled by over 50,000 Nazi soldiers bearing down on it.

Unfortunately, due to the weather, Gen. Patton didn’t have the air cover he needed to relieve the 15,000 brave American troops holding off the Germans.

That’s when he decided to rely on the power of prayer.

Patton had Chaplain Fr. James O’Neill compose a card to be distributed to each one of the 250,000 troops under his command in the Third Army, and had all of the men pray this simple prayer:

prayercard

“Almighty and most merciful Father, we humbly beseech Thee, of Thy great goodness, to restrain these immoderate rains with which we have had to contend,” it read. “Grant us fair weather for Battle. Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call Thee that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies, and establish Thy justice among men and nations. Amen.”

On the reverse side, Patton wrote, “To each officer and soldier in the Third United States Army, I wish a Merry Christmas. I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty, and skill in battle. We march in our might to complete victory. May God’s blessings rest upon each of you on this Christmas Day. – G.S. Patton, Jr., Lt. Gen. Commanding, Third United States Army.”

And it worked. The next day, the weather cleared, Patton’s Third Army made its way into Bastogne to relieve the 101st Airborne, stymie the Nazis, and … well, you know the rest.

If that isn’t a Christmas card to end all Christmas cards, I don’t know what is. Manliness exemplified, indeed.

 

Expert Lets Us in on Some Awesome Secrets of the Iconic M1 Garand Rifle Expert Reveals Secrets of Garand M1

1 Comment

H/T Conservative Tribune.

This is what General George S.Patton Jr said about the M-1, “In my opinion, the M1 rifle is the greatest battle implement ever devised.”

https://conservativetribune.com/expert-lets-us-in-on-some-awesome-secrets-of-the-iconic-m1-garand-rifle/

Springfield Armory’s M1 Garand is one of the most iconic firearms in the world.

It was the brainchild of firearm designer John Cantius Garand. His first prototype was tested and accepted on July 21, 1937, for use with the United States Army and Marine Corps. Because of its primary use during the Second World War, it’s often seen in pictures being toted by GIs.

But today, the rifle is elusive for collectors, with only a few being offered through the Civilian Marksmanship Program. Quality models can cost upwards of $5,000.

M1 Garand rifle - USA - 30-06 - Armémuseum

If you ask anyone who has heard about the M1 Garand, they can probably tell you the basic facts.

When a clip is expended, it makes a sharp pinging sound as it’s ejected from the rifle. Most everyone knows about its importance in World War II as well. They may even be able to tell you that the rifle is used as a ceremonial weapon in many U.S. military drill teams.

The YouTube channel “God Family and Guns” released a video with a gun expert revealing some of the less-known facts about the rifle.

The first and most overlooked is the pronunciation.

John Garand was French-Canadian, and said his name “Gare-und,” not “Guh-rand,” which you’ll even hear experts use frequently. Since the rifle was named after him, this is the proper way to say it. Americanized French has turned it into something that would probably sound weird to the original designer.

En-JohnGarandLarge

With a rifle as iconic as this, you would imagine mass production was immediately started. This is also wrong. After official adoption by the U.S. military, factories were only producing about 10 a day. This slowly increased over the years, eventually holding enough industrial capacity to arm soldiers for the Second World War.

The high production numbers continued to fuel its use with armies across the world, which modified the M1 to fill various combat roles. These modifications could include anything from an optic for long-range engagements to machining that allows rifle grenades to be fired, with sights drilled into the side of the rifle.

M1 Garand grenade sight

The power of the M1 Garand impressed the Axis enemy so much that they begin to ramp up experimentation and development of their own semi-automatic, high-caliber weaponry. This would lead to one of the greatest leaps for small arms in the 20th Century. We have the ferocity of the M1 to thank for the German STG-44, whose design was used as a base for the game-changing AK-47.

The manufacturing itself also reached new heights, with non-firearm companies such as International Harvester, a tractor manufacturer, stepping in to help meet U.S. wartime needs.

In 2009, South Korea’s stock of 850,000 service rifles was aging, and the country hoped to export them to America to be sold on the civilian market. This would have been an amazing opportunity for gun collectors and sportsmen alike, as the price would have gone down drastically with the increased availability. But there’s a reason you don’t see an M1 Garand in gun safes across America.

Then-President Barack Obama blocked the sale, forcing South Korea to use private investors to import their stock. This increased cost also made the rifles too expensive for the average American.

The M1 Garand has earned a place in American history and culture, with appearances in video games, movies, and books. While hard to find and purchase, they will hopefully become far more prevalent thanks to President Donald Trump’s much more constitutional view of the Second Amendment.

Horrifying Experiment Shows What Happens When a Kid Shielded From Guns Finds One

1 Comment

H/T Conservative Tribune.

I have been teaching our daughters about what to do and not to do if they see a gun.

I was not surprised to see the children from the families that are anti gun pick up the gun and point it at the other children.

A 2016 research study regarding children and firearms had an interesting outcome, particularly for liberals who believe that shielding Americans from guns makes them safer.

With assistance of local police, Waterloo, Iowa, television news station KWWL conducted the study by putting eight pre-school and kindergarten-age children in a room with an unloaded gun hidden among a slew of toys.

It took only 15 seconds for one of the kids to find the gun and pick it up. Then, one by one, almost all of the other kids followed suit, picking up the firearm and even pointing it at each other.

Two children, however, didn’t touch the weapon.

As it turned out, these two kids had something important in common — their families have guns inside the home and have explained the dangers and responsibilities of guns to them, according to KWWL.

Watch a video about the study here:

The kids’ mothers, who were watching via live video from a control room, were disturbed by the children’s behavior.

“We haven’t had that conversation and he was the first to pick it up,” one mother said, according to KWWL. “I’m scared. That was scary for me. What to do and what not to do.”

Waterloo Police Lt. Aaron McClelland said the children’s curiosity was typical behavior “for young kids.”

“Everything is a toy in their world,” he explained. “Unless we educate them and let them know sometimes it’s not.”

The statistics for what happens when a child doesn’t know how to handle a firearm responsibly are grim.

In fact, a large portion of the 89 percent of unintentional shooting deaths of children occur when a child plays with a loaded gun in the absence of a parent, according to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Because children are curious and guns can look like toys if a child doesn’t know any better.

That’s why it is so important for us to teach our children about responsible gun behavior, such as not picking one up without an adult’s permission or guidance. The NRA offers its “Eddie Eagle” program to aid parents in teaching their kids about gun safety.

Kids whose parents have shielded them from guns run the risk of mistakenly believing that the gun is something to play with.

Yes, guns can be dangerous — especially in the hands of an untrained, uneducated child — but we can largely avoid those dangers by simply educating our children about guns and talking to them about responsible gun handling.
