Shark Attacks In U.S. Which Haven’t Happened Yet Blamed On Global Warming

If the shark attacks decrease this year, will that be blamed on “global warming”, too?

(UK Daily Mail)  Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water.

As the summer beach season opens across the United States, experts are warning beach goers to take extra precautions as they predict a record number of shark attacks this year.

George Burgess, director of the International Shark Attack File at the University of Florida, warned that the United States could expect more than 100 attacks this year – thanks, in part, to global warming.

‘We should have more bites this year than last,’ Burgess, said in an interview shortly before the Memorial Day holiday weekend that signals the unofficial start of America’s summer vacation – and beach – season.

Also mentioned are shark populations increasing from historic lows in the 1990’s, and having more and more people going to the beach. But, hey, it’s still mostly due to global warming, probably from all those “climate scientists” traveling around the world on fossil fueled vehicles. Nah, probably all those people taking fossil fueled trips to the beach, so, hey, they deserve it.

And if we were all willing to pay big taxes, the sharks would just stop biting people. This is all a big scam based on scaremongering and drafting Madam Zelda to use her tea leaves upon the computer models.

Trump: Say, Did Obama Mention Pearl Harbor While In Japan?

It’s obviously a rhetorical question as Obama continues his apology tour

(CNN) Donald Trump on Saturday questioned why President Barack Obama didn’t mention the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor during his trip this week to Japan.

“Does President Obama ever discuss the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor while he’s in Japan? Thousands of American lives lost. #MDW,” tweeted Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee.

Well, no, of course not. Nor did Obama mention all the Japanese atrocities. Nope, apology tour

Obama did not publicly mention the surprise 1941 attack that pulled the U.S. into World War II while on his historic trip to Japan this week, during which he became the first sitting U.S. president to visit Hiroshima. He used the visit to discuss the threat of nuclear weapons.

“Why do we come to this place, to Hiroshima? We come to ponder the terrible forces unleashed in the not-so-distant past. We come to mourn the dead … their souls speak to us and ask us to look inward. To take stock of who we are and what we might become,” Obama said during his visit to the city’s Peace Memorial Park.

How about who we were. A country that was attacked without a declaration of war in a sucker attack. A nation that thought it better to drop the two atomic bombs to attempt to force Japan to surrender, rather than continuing the island hopping to Japan, then having to bomb the daylights out of the nation before and during an invasion that could see hundreds of thousands killed, with our eye on the primary concern for the Americans that would be killed.

It’s insane that, because of this reckless fool’s visit to Japan, we have to actually re-litigate what happened in 1945, when those two bombs were dropped. Obama called dropping the bombs a mistake, as part of an overall speech

The only mistake was Japan attacking the United States of America. As President Truman stated

Sixteen hours ago an American airplane dropped one bomb on Hiroshima and destroyed its usefulness to the enemy. That bomb had more power than 20,000 tons of TNT. It had more than two thousand times the blast power of the British “Grand Slam” which is the largest bomb ever yet used in the history of warfare.

The Japanese began the war from the air at Pearl Harbor. They have been repaid many fold. And the end is not yet. With this bomb we have now added a new and revolutionary increase in destruction to supplement the growing power of our armed forces. In their present form these bombs are now in production and even more powerful forms are in development. (snip)

We are now prepared to obliterate more rapidly and completely every productive enterprise the Japanese have above ground in any city. We shall destroy their docks, their factories, and their communications. Let there be no mistake; we shall completely destroy Japan’s power to make war.

A president with backbone.

Surprise: Denmark Admits Wind Power Is Too Expensive

One day wind power will be worthwhile monetarily, economically, and personally. I still say that there should be more of a focus on small projects aimed more to individual buildings and homes, empowering (sic) home and business owners to get off the grid. Interestingly, the Big Big Projects empower not just Government, but those big evil companies Progressives say they hate. Buy, anyhow, how is this shaking out?

Denmark has been heading the vanguard in the battle for wind power, but now admits it’s become too expensive

Denmark has led the charge for renewable energy, but now the green policies have become too expensive.

In 2015, Denmark set a new world record by generating the equivalent of 42.1% of the country’s total energy consumption by wind. Denmark is also the world’s largest exporter of wind power equipment. So it’s fair to say that Denmark is perhaps the world’s leading wind power nation.

Yay, Denmark!

The Danish consumers and companies pay the highest prices for electricity within the European Union, EU, according to an analysis from the European Electricity Association, Eurelectric.

The analysis showed that in 2014 a staggering 66 percent of the average Danish electricity bill went to taxes and fees, 18 percent to transportation and only 15 percent of the price was for the electricity in itself. Only Germany came close with 52 percent in electricity taxes.

Without all these extra costs Danes would pay below the European average for their energy.

“We can’t accept this, as the private sector and households are paying far too much. Denmark’s renewable policy has turned out to be too expensive,” the climate minister said.

Anyone who is shocked, raise your hand.

Trump Is Worse Than Everyone Thought On ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

So, Donald Trump gave a speech on energy Thursday, or so I hear. I was actually watching the speech live, but tuned out when he wasn’t seeming to get to the energy part, just typical rambling by Donald on this and that and the other. But, Mashable supposedly listened to it, or, most likely, read someone else’s story on the speech. Regardless, in an “analysis” by Andrew Freeman

Trump on climate: He’s even worse than we thought

No one expected Donald Trump to give a single energy speech and suddenly pivot to the left on global warming, after a record of expressing skepticism that global warming exists on several prior occasions.

However, few of even the most die-hard, wary environmentalists likely expected what they got on Thursday, when Trump both effectively clinched the nomination and gave a dismissive energy speech in North Dakota.

The speech amounted to a broadside against the Obama administration’s climate and energy policies, as well as Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton’s proposals, in addition to climate science and energy market realities.

Well, that is a good thing in my book. We need to use our own energy sources, including oil and natural gas. Any Warmist who doesn’t like it should give up their own use of oil immediately.

Fortunately for Paris agreement fans, Trump cannot unilaterally cancel it, but he can mortally wound it.

Freeman doesn’t say why, he simply just continues a meme being propagated by Warmists. In fact, Trump, if he wins the presidency, can simply issue an executive order cancelling America’s participation. For all intent purposes, that is how America joined the Paris climate accord. It was never ratified by the Senate, hence, it has no force of law.

Whether a President Trump would pull out of the accords is another question.

Trump went so far as to imply that climate change is a “phony” environmental concern when he said:

“A Trump administration will focus on real environmental challenges, not the phony ones we’ve been looking at.”

This is one of the few things I like about Trump. However, I do not trust him, as there have been vacillations on the subject. He is right, though, that we should deal with real environmental issues, not this phony manufactured on on ‘climate change’, which is really just a left wing attempt to increase taxes, along with more governmental control of people, energy, private institutions, and the economy, mostly at the federal level.

Instead of speaking truth to power and saying that the glory days of “drill, baby, drill” may be gone, as a market-based transition to renewable energy continues, he chose to throw red meat to the crowd.

As opposed to Democrats like Hillary and Bernie, who yammer on about ‘climate change’ before getting on fossil fueled planes and SUVs.

This speech effectively put Trump at the top of the enemies list for every climate advocate, business executive and world leader committed to taking the climate threat seriously. The reality is that Trump’s policies as he presented them today cannot be implemented if we are to have any hope of containing global warming to a somewhat manageable level.

The policies as written and pushed by most Warmists would have a negligible effect on the climate (in theory) to start with, so, ignoring them won’t change the end results, particularly since Mankind has only a tiny effect on global effects of a warming climate, which, surprise, has been happening off and on throughout the Holocene. But, hey, good news, Trump has made the top of the enemies list! Fascists/authoritarians love their enemies lists.

Family Of Kate Steinle, Murdered By An Illegal Alien, Files Lawsuit

You remember Kate Steinle. She was murdered by an illegal alien in San Francisco with the stolen gun of a federal agent. The illegal should have never been in the country. He was a 5 time deported absconder. And while Obama has plenty of time to place a phone call to people who come out as gay, he had no time to call Kate’s family

(Fox News) Relatives of the woman shot to death on a San Francisco pier last year filed a lawsuit Friday saying the illegal immigrant accused in the killing should have been in custody if not for a series of mistakes by city and federal workers.

The killing of Kate Steinle in July 2015 and the arrest of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez put San Francisco’s leaders on the defensive as critics and outside politicians called for a change in the city’s sanctuary law. Despite national outrage, San Francisco’s Board of Supervisors on Tuesday upheld those protections for people in the country illegally.

The sheriff at the time of the killing, Ross Mirkarimi, is named in the lawsuit, along with ICE and the Bureau of Land Management. Mirkarimi previously defended the release of the suspect, a repeat drug offender and habitual border-crosser.

The illegal in question was convicted 7 times of felonies.

Lopez-Sanchez was in the country illegally after being released from a San Francisco jail despite a request from federal immigration authorities that local officials keep him in custody for possible deportation. Lopez-Sanchez was previously deported five times to his native Mexico.

What does it say about American politics when a city is allowed to ignore federal law on immigration, while allowing a convicted felon who has been deported numerous times to walk free, and no one seems to do anything about the cities? Good for Kate’s family. Too bad Obama isn’t named in the lawsuit for failing to uphold the laws. Hopefully, this lawsuit will create a precedent that puts sanctuary cities and certain law enforcement on notice that they will be liable for the criminal conduct of the illegals they let roam free.

Dems Are Super Enthused To Engage In Witch Hunts Of Climate Skeptics

And they trot out a line that should be very familiar to those of you who read this little blog

(Daily Caller)  Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and other left-wing lawmakers wrote a letter Thursday to Attorney General Loretta Lynch thrashing GOP efforts to block an investigation into ExxonMobil over fraud charges.

Sanders’ letter, which was co-authored by Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren, from Massachusetts, and Rhode Island’s Sheldon Whitehouse, suggests that Republican efforts to stymie the investigation “reprises the tobacco lawsuit’s own early history of efforts from Congress to discourage or interfere with that lawsuit in order to protect the tobacco industry.”

Of course, there’s a big difference: there was actual evidence of fraud and shady business practices with Big Tobacco. That matters little to Warmists

Sanders and Warren call the Republican’s free speech argument nonsense.

The First Amendment argument, Warren and Sanders explain, was soundly rejected by the Department of Justice and by the United States D.C. Circuit Court of Appeal back in the 1980s when lobbyists used it to protect the tobacco industry from investigation.

“It has always been and remains good law that fraud is not protected by the First Amendment,” the letter reads. “It would be a sorry world in which corporations engaged in fraud could pull the screen of the First Amendment over any investigation of their fraud.”

Of course, we have this pesky Bill of Rights thingy, which not only includes the right to Free Speech, Free Association, etc, but

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

If Warren, Sanders, et al have evidence, let’s see it. Otherwise, this is a fishing expedition, using the power of the state and federal governments to intimidate and silence citizens, in violation of law and their oaths of office. Let’s not forget that Sanders explicitly calls to “Bring climate deniers to justice so we can aggressively tackle climate change” as part of his official policy position, a blatant violation of the Constitution, not too mention an abuse of power.
