Good Morning America Super Enthused Over Young Girl’s Speech Over Charlotte Shooting

If only liberals would consider the plight of young girls as they attempt to allow gender confused young boys into the girl’s bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms

(GMA) Peaceful protesters crowded Charlotte’s first city council meeting since the cop shooting of Keith Lamont Scott, with over 50 people speaking out against police violence.

But none of them stood out Monday quite as much as a young girl.

Zianna Oliphant, her hair done up in braids and tears streaking her face, brought into focus the stress police shootings place on children, as well as the pain the black community of Charlotte has suffered in the wake of Scott’s death last week.

“I’ve been born and raised in Charlotte. And I never felt this way until now and I can’t stand how we’re treated,” the grade-school girl said, wiping away tears.

She expressed the hardship that children face when a parent dies. Scott himself, who was African-American, had seven children.

“It’s a shame that we have to go to their graveyard and bury them. And we have tears. We shouldn’t have tears. We need our fathers and mothers to be by our side,” she said.

It’s a shame when that parent has an extensive criminal history, including violence and threats. Some of that violence and threats included use of a firearm. And included felony convictions. And restraining orders by his wife. And refusing to put the gun down.

Little Zianna is a human shield of people who do little to clean up the violence and criminality in their own community. She’s more likely to be injured or killed by her own people in her own neighborhood than by a police officer. Sadly, she’s being indoctrinated into hating the police, who just want to stop criminals from harming or killing her. Kids like Zianna are being to taught to disrespect police officers, so when a confrontation ensues, things escalate. They’re being used by activists and racists for a narrative that puts them in harm’s way.

There was a simple solution for this whole affair: Keith Scott just needed to put the gun down. Comply with the officer’s commands. Maybe not be smoking pot while waiting for his kid to come home from school. In fact, he should never have had the gun in the first place, since he was a convicted felon. Funny how criminals fail to follow the law, wouldn’t you say?

And it’s funny how this mostly seems to happen in cities run by the Democratic Party.

Good News: Obama Admin Can’t Be Bothered To Ask Refugees About Radical Views

Remember all the times when Mr. Obama said that the screening of refugees from war torn (supposedly) areas (which also happen to be Islamist areas) would be vigorous and complete? Of course, he also has stated that screening them based on religion (you know, the one that throws gays from buildings) is shameful. That they aren’t screened for social media content. And that Team Obama has cut the time to screen them? How’s this all working out in determining if these refugees will integrate and not be radicals?

(Daily Caller) A state department official could not answer Wednesday whether refugees are screened for radical views during a senate hearing.

Republican Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions asked Simon Henshaw, principal deputy assistant secretary at the Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migrants of the U.S. Department of State, “do you make any inquiry about practices that we reject in the United States like female genital mutilation?”

Sessions added, “Do you say, ‘do you believe in that and when you come to the United States will you comply with the laws of the United States on that kind of question?’”

The state department official replied, “On all questions, we make it clear to refugees that we are a nation of laws and that they need to comply with our laws.”

“But you don’t ask them whether they would comply with that law?,” Sessions asked Henshaw. He replied, “I can’t answer that question, I don’t know.”

The entire exchange went like this (video at the link)

Sessions: “Do you take into consideration the applicant’s proficiency in English or even their literacy with regard to the country from which they come?”

Henshaw: “Our decisions to bring in refugees are based on their vulnerabilities.”

Sessions: “Do you make any inquiry about practices that we reject in the United States like female genital mutilation? Do you say, ‘do you believe in that and when you come to the United States will you comply with the laws of the United States on that kind of question?’”

Henshaw: “On all questions, we make it clear to refugees that we are a nation of laws and that they need to comply with our laws.”

Sessions: “But you don’t ask them whether they would comply with that law?”

Henshaw: “I can’t answer that question I don’t know.”

When testifying before Congress, “I don’t know” or any variant usually means “I don’t want to tell you.” Anyhow, this is fantastic. They don’t bother to ask if they can speak our language, they don’t care if they can communicate with the citizens here in the US, nor do they attempt to confirm if the “refugees” hold radical views.

It really doesn’t get any better when it comes to Henshaw’s boss

(WND) President Obama’s top official responsible for vetting refugees testified before the Senate Wednesday that it’s possible for people from Syria and other terrorist-infested countries to have their refugee applications approved based simply on personal interviews with a “highly trained” immigration officer.

Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, could not deny that in many cases there is no data from the refugee’s home country that would corroborate or refute his story. He tried to reassure the committee by saying the screening process is lengthy and continuously being improved, noting that the United Nations pre-screens the refugees before his office even sees them.

Under questioning from Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Rodriguez at first avoided giving a direct answer on whether it was possible to gain admission as a refugee based solely on an interview. That infuriated Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., who chairs the subcommittee on immigration and the national interest. His subcommittee conducted the hearing Wednesday on Obama’s refugee plans for fiscal year 2017, which begins Saturday, Oct. 1.

Thank goodness our government is working hard to safeguard U.S. citizens.

Too Good To Check: Hillary Had Debate Questions Weeks Beforehand

The funny part about all these types of conspiracy theories is that they so often turn out to have at least some truth to them, at least where the Clinton’s are concerned

(Baltimore Gazette) The first presidential debate was held and Hillary Clinton was proclaimed the winner by the media. Indeed Clinton was able to turn in a strong debate performance, but did she do so fairly? Multiple reports and leaked information from inside the Clinton camp claim that the Clinton campaign was given the entire set of debate questions an entire week before the actual debate.

Earlier last week an NBC intern was seen hand delivering a package to Clinton’s campaign headquarters, according to sources. The package was not given to secretarial staff, as would normally happen, but the intern was instead ushered into the personal office of Clinton campaign manager Robert Mook. Members of the Clinton press corps from several media organizations were in attendance at the time, and a reporter from Fox News recognized the intern, but said he was initially confused because the NBC intern was dressed like a Fed Ex employee.

There was no Fed Ex truck outside, and the intern left via another door. As the article writer notes, it will be almost impossible to fully prove this

Clinton seemed to have scripted responses ready for every question she was asked at the first debate. She had facts and numbers memorized for specific questions that it is very doubtful she would have had without being furnished the questions beforehand.

What happens if this is exposed? What happens if she seems utterly scripted during the next debate or two? Don’t discount that Hillary has long been in politics, and has done plenty of debating. Nor should anyone think she is not a very smart person. She certainly is. Would you put this past Hillary and the Dems along with their compliant media?

Anyhow, it’s an interesting theory to speculate on. Hey, if Howard Dean can say Trump is using cocaine and Team Hillary can start the Birther rumor……

Judge Defies Biology, Decides Privacy Rights Of Girls Are Unimportant

This is the world of Liberals, who tell us that women are super crazy important, but, women need to just shut up and deal with having penis forced upon them in their safe spaces

(Daily Caller) A federal judge ruled Monday that a school district in Ohio must treat a transgender boy “like the girl she is” and allow him unfettered access to a girl’s bathroom, according to local reports.

Judge Algenon Marbley, a Bill Clinton appointee, also said that Highland Local School District must treat the boy as a girl in all other aspects, using his chosen female name and referring to him with female pronouns at all times, reports The Blade, in Toledo, O.H.

Highland has been dealing with this highly confused boy (if the person in question has a penis, then a boy) since 2013, and sued to stop the tyrannical Obama administration from forcing the school to let the boy in with the girls. Team Obama had threatened to pull $1 million in federal funding. You know, money that came from taxpayers without a choice.

Doe, meanwhile, has been pursuing a civil rights complaint against Highland since late 2013. Besides ordering Highland to let Doe use whatever bathroom he wants, the federal government also told the school district that it needs to hire a gender-identity consultant who can train staff members to be properly sensitive on issues of gender identity.

The two cases collided in the ruling Monday. There is “certainly no evidence” that girls at Highland’s schools will have their well-being harmed by sharing facilities with a biological male, Marbley said. All showers at Doe’s school are curtained off, and toilets all have their own stalls, minimizing the risk that girls would encounter a penis in the bathroom, he added.

Hmm, that sounds like mansplaining, does it not? Remember this one?

On Wednesday, Alliance Defending Freedom filed a federal lawsuit on behalf of high school students and parents, asking the court to strike down a Minnesota school district policy that empowers a male student to enter the girls’ locker room and disrobe.

Not surprisingly, many girls have been distressed by the actions of the male student, which include twerking, grinding, and other sexually explicit actions. The response of the district and other authorities to the concerns has been a collective yawn.

I bet they thought, initially, that there would be no evidence of harm and privacy violations.

And, of course, the Highland school had offered an accommodation where the gender confused would use a single stall bathroom, but, apparently, not being able to use the female children’s rooms was taking a toll on his health, per the parents, who should be locked up for child abuse. They always have to include everyone else in their deviancy by force of government.

Choice and privacy are only applicable when it comes to abortion on demand.

EPA Quietly Passes New ‘Climate Change’ Regulations On Household Appliances

Will the EPA turn off their air conditioning and refrigerators at their offices until replacement refrigerants can be implemented? Obviously, that’s rhetorical

(Daily Caller) While media coverage Monday largely focused on the first presidential debate, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized two global warming regulations to ban chemicals used in refrigerators and air conditioners.

EPA unveiled its regulations ahead of next month’s Montreal Protocol meeting, likely as part of the White House’s strategy to issue rules to show other countries the U.S. is serious about fighting global warming. (snip)

EPA’s two new rules increase regulations on household appliances that use HFCs and add “to the list of safer and more climate-friendly chemicals for use in the refrigeration and air conditioning and fire suppression sectors.”

There is no actual timeline given by the EPA for this to occur, all in the name of anthropogenic climate change, though it seems they want something done by 2025. And, let’s be honest, some of the gases are potent greenhouse gases, much more than CO2, though they do not contribute all that much. Interestingly, the people who make these household appliances are already ahead of the EPA

The Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers has announced a goal — for which it is seeking the support of government and safety authorities — to voluntarily phase down the use of hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerants used in household refrigerators and freezers after 2024. This effort builds on a history of environmental stewardship that includes significant gains in energy and water efficiency and the phasing out of ozone-depleting substances without losing these efficiency gains.

But, there really aren’t any viable alternatives at the moment. They say as much. Many of them are very expensive, very flammable, or both. So, they are doing what the private sector does: work towards alternatives that will not significantly increase the cost of appliances, nor cause them to catch on fire. The EPA has jumped in with both feet, and seems determined to find a refrgerant based more on its GHG potential, regardless of cost to the consumer.

Under Section 612 of the Clean Air Act, EPA’s Significant New Alternatives Policy (SNAP) program is adding to the list of safer and more climate-friendly chemicals for use in the refrigeration and air conditioning and fire suppression sectors; listing several new substitutes as unacceptable in specific end-uses in the refrigeration and air conditioning sector; and changing the status of a number of substitutes that were previously listed as acceptable in the refrigeration and air conditioning and foam blowing sectors. Foam products that contain unacceptable foam blowing agents are also listed as unacceptable.

It’s all about Hotcoldwetdry. If your costs go up, so be it. If you’re unable to get your appliances fixed, so have to purchase new more expensive ones, so be it. It’s easy to say when you are able to purchase appliances at any price because taxpayers are footing the bill.

In today’s second action, EPA is strengthening the refrigerant management program under Section 608 of the Clean Air Act and extending the regulations to non-ozone depleting substitutes such as HFCs and other substitutes. This action will lead to reductions in emissions by lowering the leak rate at which large air conditioning and refrigeration appliances must be repaired and incorporating industry best practices such as verifying repairs and conducting regular leak inspections on leaking appliances. In addition to the benefits for the ozone layer, EPA estimates the refrigerant emissions avoided from this rule will be more than 7 MMTCO2eq annually.

Which will cost businesses more money. Guess who pays for that? Don’t expect an lawsuits on this one, though.

Let’s nor forget that a big part of this push is international, in an attempt which will limit, if not eliminate, the ability for people in developing nations to have the same appliances being used in the 1st World now, meaning they won’t be able to afford things like refrigerators. Where does this occur mostly? In places like Africa and Asia. Seems rather racist.

Only 36% Think Hillary Is Healthy Enough To Be President

This seems to have utterly vexed AP writers Lauren Neerguaard and Emily Swanson

AP-GfK poll: Voters more confident in Trump’s health

The “stamina,” the “look”: A new poll suggests voters are buying in to Donald Trump’s insinuations about Hillary Clinton’s health. They’re ignoring the medical reports.

Voters — especially men — have more confidence that Trump is healthy enough for the presidency than Clinton, according to the Associated Press-GfK poll.

It’s a disconnect considering Clinton has released more medical information than Trump, and that outside doctors who’ve looked at the available data say both candidates seem fine. But it shows the political points Trump scored after the Democratic nominee’s much-publicized mild case of pneumonia.

It’s not a disconnect when we see Hillary have long coughing fits on a seemingly constant basis. When we see her seemingly unable to walk a flight of stairs. When we see her fall down. When she seems to injure herself. When her eye wanders. When she collapses on video.

“Everybody gets sick,” said Sherri Smart, 56, of New York. She said she hasn’t decided who to vote for but wishes the candidates would discuss issues instead of sniping about who’s most vigorous.

True, everybody does get sick. When it happens on a constant basis, it is cause for concern. But, hey, let’s talk about Hillary’s meager Clinton Foundation donations to charity, her illegal use of an insecure email server, and what she actually did as a Senator and Sec of State. Perhaps we can talk about her attacks on women who credibly accused her husband of sexual assault.

“What’s important is, what are you going to do for me?” Smart said.

Good grief.

The AP-GfK poll found 51 percent of voters are very or extremely confident that Trump is healthy enough to be president. In contrast, just over a third of voters — 36 percent — had the same confidence in Clinton’s health.

So, Trump isn’t all that much better. But still better. Hillary is way underwater. The poll has some interesting metrics. It includes 20% with vote seldom/never, with 14% voting never. 15% overall say they aren’t going to vote. It oversamples Democrats 34/24/26 (D/I/R). 14% say they are none of those.

Only 16% are very confident in Hillary’s health, with 21% very confident, as compared to Trump with 19/29

Of course, let’s not forget that Trump called a Ms. Universe who put on like 60 pounds fat. Because that’s super important.

GOP Asks Obama To Provide Proof That Hotcoldwetdry Is A National Security Concern

Now, let’s be honest: climatic changes do pose a threat. It always has. It also can reduce threats. But, the question has never been about a warming climate, it’s over the causation. And Team Obama is all about Blamestorming mankind

(Daily Caller) Republican lawmakers are demanding the Obama administration back up with evidence a recent executive memoranda requiring federal officials to consider the impact of global warming on national security.

“The Committee has genuine interest in the climate science and information that the Administration claims impacts national security,” reads a letter to National Security Adviser Susan Rice from Texas Republican Rep. Lamar Smith — chairman of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology.

Smith is referring to a memoranda the White House issued Wednesday demanding the “federal government to fully consider the impacts of climate change in the development and implementation of all national security policies and plans.”

Said memoranda would require that the agencies consider what Mankind does, and will simply waste time, money, and manpower on this silliness. I hope the GOP isn’t expecting a response, since Dear Leader has never been very responsive to this who “democracy” thing, and with only a few months left, he can’t be bothered.

Say, How Do We Teach ‘Climate Change’ Without Terrifying School Kids?

This is something Very Concerning to NPR, which seems to forget that the Cult of Climastrology has been attempting to terrify kids for decades

Teaching Middle Schoolers Climate Change Without Terrifying Them

Bertha Vazquez has taught earth science for more than twenty-five years.

“For many years I covered the basic standard, probably like most people in the country do.”

Then one day she says she decided to throw all that out the window when she saw former Vice President Al Gore speak at the University of Miami at a screening of An Inconvenient Truth, his documentary about climate change.

“And it really … hit me. This is 2007 and, I’ve got to tell you, I lost sleep,” Vazquez says.

So, instead of actually teaching science and reality, she had a meltdown and decided to teach leftist politics.

“You can’t depress the hell out of them … if you want them to start looking for solutions,” she says. “So I don’t really go there. Do I feel that way personally? Yes … but in class I put on my happy face.”

A pivotal moment in Vazquez’s class often comes when her students open an app called Eyes on the Rise, where they plug in their address and learn how far they live above sea level.

“One kid will say, ‘I’m 10 feet above sea level. I’m going to be OK,'” Vazquez explains. “I’ll say ‘Yeah, you’ll be on a little hill, but what about everybody else around you? We’re all in this boat together.’ “

It’s no wonder kids are neurotic and terrified,  along with being hot house flower basket-cases, when they are subjected to this mularky and doomsaying. Fortunately, the same people have created economic situations where these kids are graduating and have no job prospects, so they hunker down in their parent’s basement.
