Are Democrats Blocking Plainclothed Police Officers Inside Convention?

But, but, but, Democrats love police officers! I know because they tell us! Right before they slur them

Huh

(Breitbart)  Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” in an appearance from the site of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani called the convention “the most anti-police” and “the most anti-law enforcement” he had ever seen.

However, he also said that according to “high-ranking police officers” in Philadelphia, uniformed law enforcement was not allowed on the floor of the convention.

“This is the most anti-police, anti-law enforcement convention I’ve ever seen in my whole life. There was not a uniformed police officer allowed on the convention floor. I was told that by four high-ranking police officers, two of whom I’ve known for a very long time. And then I walked the floor for very long time and I couldn’t find a single officer. Go look at your footage.  You find me a uniform. Hillary Clinton didn’t want uniformed police officers on the convention floor.”

Giuliani made the same claim this morning on the Bill Lumaye show on WPTF (I refuse to listen to Glenn Beck anymore). He went on to say that officers are allowed as long as they are not in uniform.

Groups File Lawsuit Against Rhode Island AG For Climate Change Targeting

Democratic party attorney generals wanted to use the power of the government to engage in lawfare and intimidation against those who refuse to believe in anthropogenic climate change. They’ve been receiving a bit of their own medicine, and here comes some more

(New Boston Post) Two national public interest groups are suing Rhode Island’s attorney general, whom the groups claim formed a “secret pact” with climate change lobbyists and other state attorneys general to prosecute those who raise questions about global warming.

On Wednesday, Washington, D.C.-based Free Market Environment Law Clinic and the Energy & Environment Legal Institute filed suit in Providence Superior Court against the Rhode Island Department of the Attorney General, seeking specific records detailing that office’s collaboration with other attorneys general investigating those who disagree with the prevailing wisdom on climate change.

This goes back to the collusion between the 19 Democrat AGs and climate change lobbyists and groups to target Exxon Mobile, as well as lots of private Conservative groups. They demanded tons and tons of material, including emails and documents going back decades, which would include donor information and the names of compatriots, who would then be included in the targeting. It was a massive attempt to chill Free Speech, which Warmists are attempting to criminalize as “fraud”, despite having no actual evidence. So much was simply a fishing expedition.

The suit filed in Rhode Island on Wednesday by pro-energy groups alleges that Kilmartin’s office withheld documents related to his office’s involvement in the effort to coordinate such strategies.

In particular, the suit alleges that Kilmartin withheld evidence of a “common interest agreement” which, they allege, is actually a sweeping effort by the attorneys general to exempt themselves state open records laws with respect to any discussions regarding the topics of energy and climate. The suit claims that the AG’s office violated the Access to Public Records Act, Chapter 38-2 of the Rhode Island General Laws and seeks to vindicate the public’s right to a transparent and open government by asking the court to require Kilmartin to produce the requested records.

The AGs want tons and tons of records, yet, they seem very unwilling to provide their own. Similarly, these same AGs and climate groups are refusing to provide the documents demanded by a subpoena from the House of Representatives. What do they have to hide?

Surprise: Yet Another Warmist Calls For Climate Skepticism To Be A Crime

I wonder, should it be a crime to call for all sorts of anthropogenic climate change measures and laws to fail to practice what they preach? Should it be a crime for members of the Cult of Climastrology to call for measures on Other People? Should it be a crime for a Warmist to use fossil fuels in their own lives? Na. But they sure want to criminalize what they consider Wrongthink (via Anthony Watts)

Dr Jarrod Gilbert: Why climate denial should be a criminal offence

There is no greater crime being perpetuated on future generations than that committed by those who deny climate change. The scientific consensus is so overwhelming that to argue against it is to perpetuate a dangerous fraud. Denial has become a yardstick by which intelligence can be tested. The term climate sceptic is now interchangeable with the term mindless fool.

Fraud, huh? Aping the latest duckspeak from the Cult of Climastrology.

Meta studies show that 97 per cent of published climate scientists agree that global warming is occurring and that it is caused by human activities. The American Association for the Advancement of Science compared it to the consensus linking smoking to cancer. The debate is over, yet doubt continues.

Trotting out 97% consensus is fraud, since the studies are frauds. Plus, consensus is not science.

The worst of these problems will impact more greatly on generations to come, but to ignore them now is as unconscionable as it is selfish. It ought be seen as a crime.

Of course, the writer, Dr Jarrod Gilbert, who practices that deep science disciple of “sociology”, isn’t fool enough to delve into specific criminal penalties

One way in which everyday crime can be discouraged is to ensure that “capable guardians” are around to deter criminal activity. When it comes to climate change, the capable guardians are educated members of the public who counteract the deniers.

You know what he really wanted to write was to stick skeptics in jail or re-education camps. Or kill them. Many Warmists have thought that murder for Wrongthink is a great idea.

There may be differing opinions on what policies to pursue, but those who deny that climate change exists ought be shouted down like the charlatans that they are. Or better yet, looked upon with pitiful contempt and completely ignored.

Merriam-Webster defines charlatan as “a person who falsely pretends to know or be something in order to deceive people.” Dictionary.com goes with “a person who pretends or claims to have more knowledge or skill than he or she possesses; quack.” Would not a person who says there is a Big Problem but refuses to change their own life to match the solutions they recommend be implemented by governmental force be a charlatan? Yes.

Obama Gives Speech At DNC, Forgets Who Has Been President Last 7+ Years

It was an amazing speech from a guy whose political party loathes America, and he himself has long attempted to fundamentally transform America. This ABC News headline is perhaps the most ironic

President Obama Tells DNC ‘America is Already Great’ and ‘We Don’t Look to Be Ruled’

President Obama delivered a resounding defense of the state of the country at the Democratic Convention Wednesday night and said Hillary Clinton would help defend his legacy in the White House, continuing the work left unfinished during his presidency.

The president also offered a stinging rebuke of Clinton’s Republican rival Donald Trump, painting him as fear-mongering and unqualified for the job and saying “we don’t look to be ruled.”

Says the guy whose use of major Executive Orders has been staggering. Says the guy who started an air war against Libya without even bothering to notify Congress for days. Says the guy who shut down national monuments when he didn’t get his way during budget negotiations after agreeing to a deal. Says the guy who sends his wife and kids off on taxpayer funded vacations. Says the guy whose every proclamation is about increasing the power of the President and Executive branch.

“This is a more fundamental choice -– about who we are as a people, and whether we stay true to this great American experiment in self-government,” he said. “We Democrats have always had plenty of differences with the Republican Party, and there’s nothing wrong with that; it’s precisely this contest of ideas that pushes our country forward.”

Trump has appealed to quite a few Americans because we elect people to office who then refuse to accede to the wishes of the people, doing what they want. People are tired of a far flung government failing to listen. They are tired of the unaccountability.

“America is already great. America is already strong. And I promise you, our strength, our greatness, does not depend on Donald Trump,” he said, questioning Trump’s qualifications.

Obama and his crew have been tearing down America for decades. He’s spent his entire term telling us how disappointed he is in the citizens. It’s his side that burns American flags, and had to be shamed into putting a few flags in public view after having none on day one of the convention. He’s weakened our military and harmed our economy. He and his folks have worked hard to change America into something else. Someone who thinks that “America is already great” doesn’t seem to “fundamentally transform” America.

“Anyone who threatens our values, whether fascists or communists or jihadists or homegrown demagogues, will always fail in the end,” he added.

Again, says the guy who rules by his pen and phone. Of course, the phone is used to call up his appointees and tell them to increase their power through non-legislative fiats. It isn’t used to actually communicate and talk with the duly elected legislative branch. Oh, and says the guy who wants to violate our 2nd Amendment rights. Says the guy who violated the spirit of the 1st by targeting political opposition with not just his verbal assaults, but with the use of federal agencies. And violates the religious rights of citizens via his contraception mandate, created out of thin air, as it appeared nowhere in Obamacare. Says the guy who will force schools to force girls to share bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers with boys who feel they are girls (some just for a period to spy on naked girls). Says the guy who forced through a deal that will simply kick Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions down the road 10-11 years. Says the guy who demanded that the Paris climate accord be drafted in a way as to avoid putting it in from of Congress. Says the guy who denigrates the values of average Americans.

Says the guy whose economy is floundering. Says the guy who has seen race relations significantly worsen. Says the guy who denigrates police officers. Says the guy who has been less than transparent. Says the guy who started out by blaming America for being attacked on 9/11, wondering what we did wrong. Really, the speech was like he forgot that he has been president the past 7+ years.

Democrats, Media Suddenly Very Concerned With Hillary’s Deleted Emails

Democrats and the media, but I repeat myself, have been telling us since the moment Hillary’s illegal server came to light that her emails were inconsequential. Much ado about nothing. A big fat nothingburger. And, heckaroonie, what’s the big deal that she deleted 30000+ emails about yoga and weddings and personal stuff, anyhow? Well, Trump made a statement this morning, which I was actually watching, and listening, and they’ve lost their minds. For instance, the NY Times

Donald J. Trump said Wednesday that he hoped Russia had hacked Hillary Clinton’s email, essentially encouraging an adversarial foreign power to cyberspy on a secretary of state’s correspondence.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr. Trump said, staring directly into the cameras during a news conference. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

Now comes the apoplexy in a news article

Mr. Trump’s call was an extraordinary moment at a time when Russia is being accused of meddling in the United States’ presidential election. His comments came amid questions about the hacking of the Democratic National Committee’s computer servers, which American intelligence agencies have told the White House they have “high confidence” was the work of the Russian government.

There are all sorts of examples of this same thing, with Dems and their compliant media being Outraged!!!!!!

Lots of media folks and Dems were saying the same thing. Of course, they were lying. That is not what Trump said. But, hey, they have a Narrative. And you can expect there will be more Outrage in the opinion pages by tomorrow morning, and surely Outrage on CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, and CNN, among others.

But, here’s something interesting, per Sean Davis at The Federalist, who first notes this tweet from Team Hillary, echoing their press release

Davis writes

Sullivan did not explain how the e-mails, which Clinton said were about nothing more than her “yoga routines” and wedding planning for her daughter, could possibly pose a national security risk to the United States. Sullivan also failed to explain how unclassified e-mails “private personal e-mails” wholly unrelated to her work as Secretary of State — Clinton declared in an infamous 2015 press conference that she “did not email any classified material to anyone on my email” — could compromise American security.

If the emails are nothingburgers, then what national security is at stake?

Man Who Takes Long Fossil Fueled Trips To Play Golf Looks To Reign In Carbon Pollution From Airplanes

Consider: Obama has one of the largest carbon footprints in the world. He casually jumps in a helicopter for a flight over to Andrews AFB to jump on a jumbo jet to take a cross country flight, where he schedules a brief official event to avoid reimbursing the government, then heads off to fundraisers and/or a couple rounds of golf. His flight includes a backup jumbo jet and several military fighter jets. Yet…

(NY Times) The Obama administration on Monday announced its plan to start regulating planet-warming pollution from airplanes, setting off a battle between environmentalists and the airline industry.

The plan to curb airplane emissions comes as President Obama looks to strengthen his climate change legacy with new policies in the waning months of his administration. The airline rules would be among the final pieces of his sweeping and contentious second-term climate agenda, which has included rules to rein in greenhouse pollution from cars, trucks and power plants, and his role in forging last year’s Paris agreement committing nearly 200 countries to take action to reduce emissions that are warming the planet.

The Environmental Protection Agency released the aviation plan, known as an “endangerment finding,” which concludes that the planet-warming pollution produced by airplanes endangers human health by contributing to climate change. The endangerment finding does not include the details of a regulation, but it sets off a legal requirement under the Clean Air Act for the E.P.A. to establish a rule. (snip)

The announcement did not include a timetable for releasing the rule, but people tracking the administration’s climate change policies said it was possible that the E.P.A. could release a draft rule by early January, most likely making it Mr. Obama’s last climate action. However, the next administration would have the authority to rewrite the draft rule.

Huh. So, the rule will wait till Obama is almost out of office, when people won’t have the opportunity to say “say, what about your own “carbon emissions”, Mr. Obama?”

Of course, as the airline industry points out, they’re already at the cutting edge, and the technology doesn’t exist now to implement whatever is coming. Rules will also hurt American airplane companies, who have to compete against foreign companies who have no such rules. They’ll also certainly harm average Americans, as the costs for air travel will go up, affecting business travel, personal travel, and costs of goods shipped via airplane.

Good News: ISIS Threatens Attacks In America, UK

Those darned JV teamers

(Mirror UK) Images threatening attacks in London and other major world capitals have been posted on jihadi messaging app Telegram as counter-terror police issue advice to religious institutions in the UK.

London is on the next list of target cities for twisted jihadis, it has been claimed.

Images threatening attacks in London and other major world capitals have been posted on messaging app Telegram, according to analysts at SITE Intelligence Group.

One picture chillingly shows New York’s Statue of Liberty engulfed in flames but with the caption “Washington soon” – referring to the US capital 225 miles away.

Of course, ISIS has been threatening attacks for over a year, and, oh, wait, there have been jihadi attacks here in the US. Of course, they do have a bit of a geography problem, as noted

Of course, the threat from ISIS and other Islamic jihad groups has been mostly missing from the Democratic National Convention, with no mentions Monday. It didn’t seem to come up much, if at all, Tuesday, either.

Interestingly, Piers Morgan mostly makes sense in recommending that immigration from the Islamic countries be shut down temporarily, in order to attempt to assimilate those who are already here. Turn them from the path to Islamic extremism to that of being a Good Citizen.

Missing, though, is that so many of them are unassimilatable, and there are too many in Western nations who are already part of the Islamic fundamentalist movement. They may not be violent, but they push Sharia, the Caliphate, and other hardcore notions, which radicalizes others, and turns some into the violent ones.

Obama To Make Case That Hillary Would Be Third Term

Day two at the Donkey National Convention was about humanizing Hillary, a tall order indeed, as well as pandering to people, such as having the mother of Michael Brown, a guy who was killed because he attacked a police officer and tried to take his gun, speak to the assembled masses. Today it is about more pandering to interest groups, and telling us that she will be Obama’s third term

(USA Today) President Obama will take the stage at the Democratic National Convention for the fourth time Wednesday to make an argument that only one president has made successfully in modern times: that his policies deserve a third term in the form of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The speech is as important for Obama’s place in history as it is for Clinton’s future. And it will require Obama to juggle a variety of rhetorical chores: defending his own legacy, unifying the Democratic Party and promoting his once bitter rival for the presidency.

Well, let’s see. Real wages have been stagnant. Real unemployment is high, and the jobs market is a disaster, with the reduction of white collar jobs and the explosion of low paying service industry jobs, especially part time ones. Savings are down. Cost of living is up. The number of people who have left the jobs market in despair is at record highs. Welfare and food stamps recipients are at all time highs. College debt is at historic highs.

Government spending is at ridiculous levels. The debt is over $19.4 trillion (remember, he called Bush un-patriotic for increasing the debt). He pissed away taxpayer money with the Stimulus, son of Stimulus, grandson of stimulus, not to mention all the “green” energy loans.

The NSA is spying on all Americans. The CIA spied on Senators. The IRS targeted Obama political opponents. He and his administration have continuously attempted to thwart transparency. The VA scandal. Obamacare, something which polled poorly before it was passed, when it was passed, and post-passage, is imploding.

On the foreign front, he blew off the Arab Spring and Iranian Green uprising. He sided with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. He’s treated our allies like Israel and England poorly. There’s little trust for America now. ISIS has exploded on the scene under his watch. He turned a stability plan in Iraq around and made it a mess. Syria is an utter disaster. Russia is rising, and even took Crimea. He launched an air war in Libya, deposed Gaddafi (a scumbag, but one who stood against Islamists), and the left, turning the nation into a failed state rife with Islamic extremists. Oh, and it was an illegal venture, designed to protect oil for France and England. Benghazi.

As much as anyone, Obama has proven the impact that a single convention speech can have. After all, he catapulted his own trajectory to the White House with by a keynote address to the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston.

“There’s not a liberal America and a conservative America; there’s the United States of America,” he said then. “There’s not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there’s the United States of America.”

That speech came 12 years ago Wednesday — a historical coincidence that Obama is sure to note.

He’s denigrated and demeaned political opponents, and even used the power of the government to target them. Racial tensions are at all time highs. Black unemployment, especially for young black men, is very high. He’s taken the side of racists over law enforcement. He’s legalized those here in the country illegally, and brought in folks from countries with histories of Islamic terrorism, with little in the way of background checks. He’s worked hard to divide us.

The list can go on and on and on. As horrible as Donald Trump is, continuing the Obama policies, and even expanding on them, would be an unmitigated disaster.
