Don’t forget to check out all the other great material all the linked blogs have!

Anyone else have a link or hotty-fest going on? Let me know so I can add you to the list. (BTW, since someone asked, the reason I leave links for the previous week up (or you might see a *) is because they are place holders for later in the day or for next weeks. Easier than rewriting all the time. Also, the listing order has to do with how they are added over time, not how good a post is. I just copy and paste from the previous week, then edit. If you see one of the *’s, go ahead and check out the blog anyhow, see if there is an update. I cannot update with my Android during the day.

Liberals: Tim Kaine Is Racist For Supporting Gun Control Laws That Put People In Jail

Hillary’s VP pick Tim Kaine took an actual common sense action when it came to gun crime, one which did not violate the Constitutional Rights of law abiding citizens, while mayor of Richmond. How’d that work out?

(Daily Caller) The standard liberal line from Barack Obama on down is that they only want sensible gun control regulation, not confiscation.

But Hillary Clinton’s newly-selected running mate Tim Kaine is now taking flak from race activists for supporting some very sensible gun control measures that, unlike many other restrictions, actually decreased crime.

Reuters reports race activists are complaining that as Richmond mayor from 1998 to 2001 Tim Kaine strongly supported “Project Exile,” which allowed local federal prosecutors to treat illegal possession of guns as a federal rather than state offense, which requires longer prison terms. Under Project Exile convicted felons caught with an illegal gun automatically received five years in the federal penitentiary.

The program, supported by both the NRA and gun control groups, was enacted when Richmond had one of the highest homicide rates in the country. Within 10 months the city’s firearms homicide rate decreased by 41 percent.

Seems like a pretty good idea. Convicted felons, at least ones that have been convicted of violent crimes, shouldn’t be allowed to own or possess a weapon. Nor are they. Increasing the penalties certainly won’t stop all illegal activities….murder is illegal but people still do it….but, if it brings down the crime rate, that is a good thing, right? Right???

Who could argue with any of that? Liberals who consider the incarceration of black criminals inherently racist. Civil rights lawyer Nicole Lee griped to Reuters that, “Project Exile broke black families. This is not a benign thing to be for. These measures were not used against white kids in the suburbs with guns, they were used against black kids in the cities.”

Huh. Perhaps those black parents and’or kids shouldn’t have been in possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony. Interestingly, this “civil rights lawyer” is saying that blacks are more likely to be felons and then further violate the law than whites. FBI crime statistics bear this out.

Furthermore, these same activists are constantly calling to “take the streets back”, to have this spreading awareness campaign, this event, that event. They want safer streets. Yet, when there are laws that work, making their streets safer, they find a way to complain about that.

And they want Kaine to denounce Project Exile. Because it’s apparently racist to use laws that actually make the streets safer in black areas in Democratic Party run cities. Anything beyond lip=service is apparently racist.

Bummer: Liberals Upset Trump Failed To Mention ‘Climate Change’ Even Once

Over at Slate, which is becoming ever so much Salonicized in their moonbattery, Ben Adler is Very Upset

Trump Didn’t Mention Climate Change in His RNC Speech

Donald Trump’s big speech at the Republican convention on Thursday didn’t contain a single reference to the environment or climate change. It was vague on policy overall, focusing heavily on the primary themes of this year’s Republican National Convention: bashing Hillary Clinton’s character and fearmongering over crime and national security, with a heavy dose of Islamophobia and xenophobia.

Oh, noes, he failed to spend time on a manufactured issue that ranks last or dead last in almost every single poll of American concerns!

There was, however, one section that dealt hazily with energy policy. Unfortunately, it was filled with falsehoods. Let’s go through the four key assertions one at a time: (I’m only touching on one in this post)

“We are going to lift the restrictions on the production of American energy. This will produce more than $20 trillion in job-creating economic activity over the next four decades.”

The source for this $20 trillion figure is the Institute for Energy Research, an organization funded by the Koch brothers. As the New York Times has previously noted, “economic reality” contradicts this projection. Additional fossil fuel production has diminishing returns because increased supply means lower prices. So, according to experts the Times interviewed, the number is wildly exaggerated.

So, wait: more fossil fuels production leads to lower prices? Really? Why is this not an awesome thing? The people who benefit from this the most are the middle and lower classes, as this reduces their cost of living, and makes it easier for them to do things like spend money on important things for themselves and their families, to stick some money away that they would otherwise have to spend, and to do a bit of traveling. Why do Warmists have the lower and middle classes?

Meanwhile, we get this from the Daily Caller, which mentions the same quote

The poll found 77 percent of voters want to see America increase production of oil and gas resources located in the U.S, including 94 percent of Republicans, 73 percent of independents, and 64 percent of Democrats.

The poll also found 69 percent of voters would support a political candidate who promised to increase production of American oil and natural gas, gaining approval from 86 percent of Republicans, 69 percent of independents, and 57 percent of Democrats. Roughly 71 percent of voters would oppose legislation that could potentially raise energy costs on the American consumer.

Wait, what? People don’t want to do things that drastically increase their own costs? Really? Don’t they know we have a planet to save!!!!!!1!!!!

Democratic Party Platform Calls For WWII Scale Mobilization To Fight Hotcoldwetdry

Anthropogenic climate change has become another one of those issues that Democrats worship over the years. Not enough to really make any big changes in their own lives, mind you, because they really do not care whether it is a scientific fact, nor do they care that it involves little science. This is all about politics, in creating a big and stronger central government, in controlling citizen’s lives, in controlling private entities and the economy, and increasing taxation. Here we have Excitable Joe Romm at the George Soros funded Think Progress squeeing

Democratic Platform Calls For WWII-Scale Mobilization To Solve Climate Crisis

This month, the full Democratic Platform Committee approved the strongest statement about the urgent need for climate action ever issued by a major party in this country.

The platform makes for the starkest possible contrast with a party that just nominated Donald Trump — a man who has called climate change a hoax invented by and for the Chinese, who has denied basic reality such as the drought in California, and who has vowed to (try to) scuttle the unanimous agreement by the world’s nations in Paris to take whatever measures are necessary to avert catastrophic warming and keep total warming “well below 2°C.”

In contrast, one party in this country has finally embraced the blunt — and scientifically accurate — language of climate hawks as to what those measures actually entail:

We believe the United States must lead in forging a robust global solution to the climate crisis. We are committed to a national mobilization, and to leading a global effort to mobilize nations to address this threat on a scale not seen since World War II. In the first 100 days of the next administration, the President will convene a summit of the world’s best engineers, climate scientists, policy experts, activists, and indigenous communities to chart a course to solve the climate crisis.

Of course, as I noted yesterday, most countries seem rather lackadaisical when it comes to ratifying the Paris climate agreement. Some are actively hostile to it.

But, regardless, if the U.S. must lead, should not the very people who pushing this lead themselves? Should they not walk the talk, practice what they preach?

The final draft of the platform — which must still be approved by the Democratic National Convention next week — also calls for a price on CO2 and other greenhouse gases: “Democrats believe that carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases should be priced to reflect their negative externalities, and to accelerate the transition to a clean energy economy and help meet our climate goals.”

Which would significantly raise the cost of living while lowering the standards of living for middle and lower class citizens. Yet, again, the very people who are pushing this refuse to give up their own fossil fuels, to make their own homes 100% renewable energy, to only buy local, to turn their AC up to 85, etc and so on. Put in context of the rest of their platform, this is all about Progressive (nice fascist) government. Read through the full platform. Government, government, government.

Alaska Supreme Court Shoots Down Parental Notification For Underage Abortions

The pro-abortion worshiping Left has long had a major problem with parental notification, seeing this as a restriction too far…well, really, any restriction on abortion is a restriction too far. In this case, what they’re very upset with is privacy rights and equal protection rights of underage girls. Keep that in mind

(AP) The Alaska Supreme Court on Friday struck down a state law requiring parental notification for girls under age 18 seeking abortions, agreeing with pro-abortion rights advocates that the mandate approved by voters in 2010 was unconstitutional.

Justice Daniel Winfree, writing for the majority, said the court was not deciding whether abortions should be available to minors without restrictions but that the abortion notification law violated Alaska’s constitutional equal protection provisions giving the same rights to all Alaskans.

In a concurring opinion, Justice Dana Fabe disagreed that the law violated the girls’ equal protection rights but said she believes it violated their right to privacy.

“I believe that the Alaska Constitution permits a parental notification law, but not one that contains provisions that are among the most restrictive of any state’s notification laws,” she wrote.

The measure passed by 55.05% to 43.94%. That is a higher percentage than Obama won either time, and we were told that Obama’s wins gave him a mandate. Regardless, let’s consider: abortionistas sued over keeping parents in the loop when their underage children wanted an abortion because of privacy and equal protection.

Yet, these same Leftists have no problem whatsoever in allowing males who are gender confused or are pretending to be gender confused into the shower, locker rooms, and bathrooms of underage girls, violating their privacy and equal protection rights.

I’m sure they have some tortured logic duckspeak for the contradictory opinions, but, they matter not, because things like privacy and equality are never the point: it’s about worshiping certain “idols” at all costs. You can bet that individual liberal parents would want to be notified, and that they would not want men in the showers with their kids. But, for Other People, abortion without restriction and gender confused in those areas with Other People’s daughters Should Be Allowed. That’s the way they roll. Who cares if this is bad for parents and females? They have an agenda!

The decision was praised by pro-abortion rights advocates, including the American Civil Liberties Union of Alaska and Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest and the Hawaiian Islands, which challenged the law.

“A young woman seeking an abortion doesn’t need additional hurdles. She needs a doctor,” said Joshua Decker, executive director of Alaska’s ACLU, in a statement.

Which is funny, since abortionistas caterwaul and sue when any measures are passed that require abortion facilities to operate under the same medical standards as a medical facility. Heck, abortionistas would have a snit fit if abortion facilities were required to have the same medical standards as a tattoo parlor.

High Flying John Kerry Says Hotcoldwetdry As Dangerous As Terrorism

Good thing he took a long fossil fueled flight to Vienna to tell us this

(News and Advance) U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry says climate change is as dangerous as, if not more than, the threat from the Islamic State and other extremist groups.

Speaking on Friday at an international conference on climate change, Kerry said the issue might not get as much public attention as terrorism. But he says the climate change meeting is as important as one in Washington this week on combatting the Islamic State group. He says what’s being discussed in Vienna could “literally” save life on planet Earth.

U.N Wants Quick Paris Climate Agreement Ratification As Countries Get Cold Feet

The Paris climate agreement was hailed as “historic”, and all these big wigs in government were in total love with it. Well, 7+ months later, the reality is starting to sink in

U.N. pushes fast-track ratification of Paris climate deal as countries get cold feet

The United Nations has issued a plea for nations to fast-track ratification of the Paris Climate Agreement as some countries are backtracking on support for the deal’s sweeping restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged nations to attend a “special event” Thursday where they may deposit their “instruments of ratification, acceptance, approval or accession to the Paris Agreement on climate change.”

“I urge you to accelerate your country’s domestic process for ratification of the Agreement this year,” Mr. Ban said in a statement.

His push for rapid ratification comes amid the increasingly chilly reception for the agreement, adopted by 195 parties to the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change in Paris, by nations concerned about the impact of the carbon restrictions.

The change of heart even has a name: “Clexit,” short for “climate exit,” a take-off on “Brexit,” the successful June 23 British vote to leave the European Union.

There is major concern with the Philippines, which has said they won’t join, because the restrictions are “stupid.” There is also major concern with Australia (whose voters have repudiated government attempts to institute ‘climate change’ policies by voting them out of office.) There is concern for Britain and Germany. Every know that India and China will not abide by the terms, even if they ratify it. If Trump wins, he has stated uncategorically that he will trash it. Developing countries will abide only in terms of wanting that sweet, sweet climate cash from productive countries.

Since then, 19 countries have ratified the agreement, which goes into effect 30 days after ratification by 55 nations responsible for 55 percent of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.

It was also specifically set up to avoid having to place it in front of any duly elected legislatures, yet, just 19? It’s expected that many more will sign by December, but, seriously, much like with the Kyoto Protocol, most will do no more than pay lip service. And so many are losing the will to enact economy damaging measures that cause their middle and lower class citizens harm.
