Bummer: Warmist Jay Inslee May Not Qualify For ‘Climate Change’ Town Hall

This really is a minor story, but, it gave me a good laugh, because, let’s face it, Jay Inslee based his whole campaign on Hotcoldwetdry, and it has really gone nowhere. He attempted to shift about a month and a half ago to say that he has other policies, but, too late. Because people may say they Care about Doing Something about man-caused climate change in theory, but, in reality, not so much. Axios (hence the strange format) notes

Jay Inslee unlikely to qualify for CNN’s climate change town hall

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee, who has centered his 2020 campaign around climate change policy, was not one of the nine Democratic presidential candidates who qualified for an invite to CNN’s climate change town hall in September.

Why it matters: Several polls point to climate change as a top issue for Democratic voters, but Inslee, whose proposals and debate appearances have been focused on severing the U.S. from fossil fuel dependency, is still polling around 1%.

  • CNN said it would extend invitations to candidates who reach 2% in at least four DNC-approved polls conducted between June 28 and Aug. 21. Candidates have until Wednesday to qualify for the Sept. 4 town hall, so it means Inslee will likely end up being locked out.

So, the one Democrat whose whole focus is on ‘climate change’ will be locked out? These are the nutters who’ve qualified

  • Former Vice President Joe Biden
  • Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.)
  • South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.)
  • Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (Texas)
  • Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.)
  • Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.)
  • Andrew Yang
  • Worth noting: Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.) was invited, but declined due to a scheduling conflict.

Think about it: Andrew Yang, the guy most Americans will say “who?”, qualified, yet, a governor of a U.S. state can’t cut it? I’m guessing ‘climate change’ doesn’t actually matter.

Jew/Israel Hater Ilhan Omar Wants U.S. To Reconsider Aid To Israel

Hey, Democrats, you own this anti-Israel and anti-Jew behavior, since you mostly refuse to shut it down. Notice that Ilhan isn’t calling for reconsidering aid to the Palestinians, who just banned LGBTQ groups in the West Bank, nor to nations with hardcore Islamists.

Omar says US should reconsider aid to Israel

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) said Monday that U.S. aid to Israel should be tied to its treatment of Palestinians, questioning whether the funds should continue after the country blocked her and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) from visiting in an official capacity.

Omar had planned to travel with Tlaib to Israel this month until the Israeli government announced last week that it would deny them both entry, citing their past criticism.

Omar and Tlaib, the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, held a joint press conference on Monday to denounce that decision, which came after President Trump tweeted that it would show “great weakness” for Israel to allow the two lawmakers into the country.

Omar suggested that lawmakers reconsider the annual U.S. aid allocated to Israel in response.

“We give Israel more than $3 [billion] in aid every year. This is predicated on them being an important ally in the region and the only democracy in the Middle East. But denying a visit to duly elected members of Congress is not consistent with being an ally, and denying millions of people freedom of movement or expression or self-determination is not consistent with being a democracy,” Omar said at the press conference in St. Paul, Minn.

You’d almost want to assign the waaaaa-mbulance to her, because she got her feewings hurt, but, let’s be real, she despises Jews and Israel, and she was banned due to that. Neither she nor fellow Jew hater Rashida Tlaib have said just why they were banned, which is their belief in the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, which was founded on and based on the destruction of Israel as a nation, and rests on a bed of Jew hatred.

Other Dems have decided to stroll down this road

Mark Pocan (D-Wis), a co-chairman of the Congressional Progressive Caucus, also said that lawmakers should reconsider visits and aid to Israel in response.

“No more members of Congress, no delegations, should be going to Israel unless this decision is reversed. And I think we’re going to have to have some serious conversations even about financial support,” Pocan told The Hill.

Democrats can yammer all they want about raaaaacism and white nationalism, but, they are owning the generic anti-Semitism, which is simply hatred of Jewish people.

No Democratic Candidate Has Offered A Bold Plan For ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

This is one hell of a hot-take from the hardcores at Down To Earth

2020 US elections: No Democrat candidate offers bold plan for climate action

Election Day is more than a year away, but the race among Democrats in the US to take back the White House is heating up. While the field consists of about 20 presidential hopefuls, the ones leading the polls are former vice president Joe Biden and senators Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris. These four standard-bearers represent a party, which unlike President Donald Trump and his Republican Party, is known for climate-friendly policies.

A number of polls suggest that Democrat voters also consider climate change to be a top-tier issue, as important as healthcare. For a majority of world leaders, these presidential candidates are the last hope to make the US, the biggest carbon polluter in history, stay committed to the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change mitigation. But are they taking it seriously?

Of course, when real issues are included, and we get to the general election, caring about doing something about ‘climate change’ drops to the end. And, again, most Americans refuse to pay more than $10 a month to solve Hotcoldwetdry.

But this embrace of GND does not automatically make the Democrats’ proposals ambitious. Consider this. While advocating that global emissions will have to hit net-zero by 2050 to stay below the global warming threshold of 1.5°C, GND does not recognise the fact that the US, being a massive historic polluter, should aim at a net zero carbon economy well before 2050.

Jay Inslee, who is often referred to as “climate candidate” for the Democrat nomination (who now polls at just 2 per cent), recognises this gap and advocates a 2045 target for net-zero emissions. But none of the leading candidates have voiced their opinion about it.

Essentially, this is saying that Biden, Harris, Warren, and Comrade Bernie’s plans are way too weak. Seriously, have you read them? They may not be quite as far out as Jay Inslee, who is so low in reality that he doesn’t appear in the Real Clear Politics numbers (nor most other polls, and 44% have never heard of him), but, they are way out there. They’re all nuts. But, hey, at least Bernie isn’t calling to “bring deniers to justice” like in 2016. Yet.

And this all shows just how crazy the Cult of Climastrology is.

Surprise: Lawmakers Are Dropping More F-Bombs Than Ever

The funny thing here is that The Hill tries to make this a bipartisan thing, when, really, it is primarily Democrats losing their minds, mostly because of Trump Derangement Syndrome

F-bombs away: Why lawmakers are cursing now more than ever

For lawmakers and political candidates, 2019 could be the year of not giving a f— about cursing.

Profanity — once considered a major no-no among those seeking public office — is no longer an earth-shattering political snafu. And according to new research, this year could be on track to see members of Congress swearing up a storm more than ever before.

In analysis conducted exclusively for ITK, GovPredict, a government relations software company, found that the frequency of lawmakers using words that might make one’s grandmother blush has increased steadily since 2014.

President Trump and several of the candidates seeking to replace him next year — including Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) — have used impassioned swear words to make their points recently. Sanders responded to a debate comment about “Medicare for All” last month by saying that he “wrote the damn bill,” and Trump used the word “hell” at least half a dozen times at a Thursday night rally.

GovPredict’s data shows that obscene language not including the words “shit” and “f—” has been used at an all-time high by politicians, with 1,225 instances on Twitter so far this year compared to 833 in 2018.

Well, using damn isn’t such a big damned bill.

But these days, look no further than countless congressional social media accounts and political rallies for R-rated language.

Earlier this month, while talking to reporters, former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-Texas), a 2020 White House hopeful, dropped an F-bomb while expressing his seeming frustration with the media. After being asked by a reporter about what Trump could do in response to a mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, O’Rourke said, “He’s been calling Mexican immigrants rapists and criminals. Members of the press, what the f—?”

Booker also used less than flowery language after Trump blamed, in part, video games for the recent gun violence.

“Listening to the president. Such a bullshit soup of ineffective words,” Booker said in a text message shared by his campaign manager on Twitter.

Booker made a similar statement in May in a CNN interview while speaking about gun control: “We are not going to give thoughts and prayers, which to me is just bullshit. I’m sorry to say that as a man of faith, but I was taught that faith without works is dead.”

In early August, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) urged Americans to call on their representatives to ban assault weapons, writing on Twitter, “Demand the Members of Congress get rid of ALL assault weapons or kick our ass out of Congress!”

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) made headlines in January when she exclaimed to a cheering crowd about Trump, “We’re gonna go in and impeach the motherf—er.” She later responded to critics by tweeting, “I will always speak truth to power. #unapologeticallyMe.”

Funny how most examples are from a Democrat. So, are you ready for who’s to blame?

Some critics of the boost in blasphemous words point to the president as the source of the current coarse political tone. A New York Times story in May detailing Trump’s long history with cussing in public dubbed him the “profanity president.” In a speech that same month, Trump said “bullshit” multiple times, one of several instances of foul language spoken by the commander in chief at rallies, in interviews, on Twitter and in private — including infamously referring derisively to “shithole countries.”

Of course, it’s all Trump’s fault

Next Up On Cult Of Climastrology List: Creating A National Food Strategy

Why do most policy proposals and such from the Cult always result in more Government control over our lives and the economy? Why do they restrict out choice and freedom? Anyhow, who’s this “we” stuff?

Theresa Villiers : If we really want to fight climate change we need a national food strategy

When it comes to food, we are surrounded by an abundance that our ancestors could only have dreamed of.

One of my new colleagues at the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) spoke about a farmer who described how, when he was a boy in the 1940s, his father had wept as he tore out his hedges to put more land under the plough as his contribution to the heroic efforts that fed this country.

Like millions who know hunger around the world today, their generation valued food as something so precious it should never be wasted.

Today, our food and drink sector employs one in eight of us, contributing more than £122bn to the UK economy, and exporting over £22.6bn of high-quality, high-welfare products prized by over 200 countries worldwide.

Yet amid such abundance, something has gone very wrong. As individuals, our demise is more likely to be hastened by our own poor food choices than the infectious diseases that brought down our forefathers. As a society, we have seen how poor land use can damage our country’s natural wealth. There is also growing concern about the amount of food which is wasted.

Somehow, this is all related to man-caused climate change, you know. Because the CoC interjects itself into everything. Because it isn’t about science, but politics

There has never been a better time for fresh thinking about the whole food system, from field to fork. That is why we have launched the first major review in 75 years, ably led by entrepreneur Henry Dimbleby, to inform a national food strategy that will guide efforts across government.

Huh. More government

Scientists’ warnings, such as the recent devastating reports from the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services and Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, could not be clearer. Only a few months ago we saw the results of the most comprehensive assessment yet of the state of nature. It told us that up to a million species are facing extinction. In my lifetime, populations of animals, on average, have more than halved – a mere blink of an eye in evolutionary terms. This is not just a biodiversity issue; it is a human issue.

We have no choice but to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss, or risk not only losing untold wonders of the natural world, but plunging whole regions into desperate poverty. Central to that is the need to rethink our relationship to land-use.

How’d Theresa Villiers, secretary of state for environment, food and rural affairs, get there? Because all Warmists are nuts, and they have to drag it into everything.

I want to ensure that our food system at home complements our efforts to ensure sustainable food security for the 9 billion people who will share this planet by 2030. This country can lead the way as we head into a year of international negotiations that will define global ambition for biodiversity, climate change, and our oceans.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, Government telling you what you can eat and when, limiting what you can eat, telling farmers what they can grow. Surprise? You used to get gubmint officials advocating for mission creep for the sake of mission creep. Now they do it for Hotcoldwetdry.

Palestinian Authority Bans All LGBTQ Activities In West Bank, Rashida Tlaib, Rest Of The Squad Is Silent

Where are all the pro-Palestinian (terrorist) supporters now? Why aren’t they denouncing this? Israel, which they hate, doesn’t ban LGBTQ

Remember, the West Bank is where Ilhan Omar and Rashida Tlaib wanted to visit and demonize Israel. From the article

The Palestinian Authority banned members of the Palestinian Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) community from carrying out any activities in the West Bank.

The ban came after the grassroots group Al-Qaws for Sexual & Gender Diversity in Palestinian Society (Arabic for “the bow”), which engages and supports Palestinians who identify as LGBTQ, was planning to hold a gathering for its members in Nablus at the end of the month. The group operates both in the West Bank and among Arab-Israelis.

Earlier this month, Al-Qaws held an event in Nablus about sexual and gender diversity in Palestinian society. The PA police, however, learned about the event only days after it was held.

Al-Qaws is a civil society organization established in 2001 with the goal of “fighting for vibrant Palestinian cultural and social change, building LGBTQ communities and promoting new ideas about the role of gender and sexual diversity in political activism, civil society institutions, media, and everyday life.”

Explaining the decision to ban the LGBTQ group from operating in PA-controlled areas, Luay Zreikat, spokesperson for the PA Police, said that such activities are “harmful to the higher values and ideals of Palestinian society.”

Still waiting for the Israel haters to call for a boycott of the West Bank. Heck, some of them even mentioning this would be nice, because most are utterly ignoring the ban. It’s not in the NY Times, Washington Post, LA Times, NBC, CBS, or ABC News. Or the hardcore lefty websites.

The PA police will chase those behind the LGBTQ group and see to it that they are brought to trial once they are arrested, Zreikat warned. He further appealed to Palestinians to report to the police about any person connected to the group.

Anyone Democrat running for president have a comment? Will Rashida and the Squad boycott?

Now The Cult Of Climastrology Is Coming For The U.S. Military

Leftists have long hated the U.S. military, since the 1970’s and the Vietnam era. They’ve tried numerous ways to destroy it, especially things like defunding it. Also, destroying it from the inside by infiltrating it. This next piece rather proves yet again that the whole ‘climate change’ movement is really just a standard Modern Socialist thing that uses “the environment” as cover

We Can’t Confront Climate Change While Lavishly Funding the Pentagon

The Pentagon is staring down the barrel of what could become the longest, hottest war in U.S. history. This titanic clash pits the largest military the world has ever seen against an omnipresent opponent that can marshal resources like no enemy it has ever encountered.

That opponent is climate change, and according to a joint investigationby NBC News and InsideClimate News, the extreme heat it brings is already generating military casualties. But soldiers like Sgt. Sylvester Cline are not dying where you might expect, such as scorching, oil-rich targets like Iraq, where Cline served during a lie-tainted war. Unlike the overwhelming majority of Uncle Sam’s long list of military conflicts, this war is also being waged on U.S. soil. Sadly, the Arkansas-based sergeant was just one of “at least 17 troops to die of heat exposure during training exercises at U.S. military bases since 2008.”

In fact, the total number of heat-strokes and cases of heat exhaustion suffered by active-duty service members rose by 60 percent between 2008 and 2018 (from 1,766 to 2,792). Forty percent of these incidents occurred in the Southeastern United States in places like Fort Benning (Georgia), Camp Lejeune (North Carolina) and Fort Polk (Louisiana). Over that same period, the Southeast region has experienced average summer temperatures that were the nation’s hottest on record, and a staggering 61 percent of major Southeast cities show the effects of these worsening heat waves, according to the Fourth National Climate Assessment released in 2018.

Um, we’ve been fighting in areas of the world that, get this, tend to be hot and dry. So, of course those heat issues will arise and increase. After a bit of whining we come to

As Brown University’s Costs of War research project recently pointed out, the Defense Department “remains the world’s single largest consumer of oil – and as a result, one of the world’s top greenhouse gas emitters.” British researchers at Durham University and Lancaster University published a corroborating report detailing the profuse use of hydrocarbons to fuel U.S. military adventurism. They astutely pointed out the dilemma of attempting to confront “the effects of climate change while remaining the largest single institutional consumer of hydrocarbons in the world.” They see the Pentagon “locked into” this situation “for years to come because of its dependence on existing aircraft and warships for open-ended operations around the globe.” But that’s not the only catch-22 bedeviling an empire comprised of 800 military bases and installations that cost over a trillion dollars per year to maintain. Far more vexing is the fact that the climate crisis is itself a byproduct of 70 years of U.S. interventionism and empire.

And what do they want to do?

Unfortunately, the longer the U.S. continues to garishly fund the Pentagon and its oil-based protection racket, the harder it will be to deal with the massive ecological and human fallout caused by the hydrocarbon economy. Ultimately, it might be impossible to halt or even mitigate the climate crisis without also ending empire. And if we are not careful, the same forever war mentality that has continually shifted from one enemy to another will find yet another reason to exist — this time as a bulwark against the escalating impacts of a climate crisis it helped to create in the first place.

So, pretty much, they want to defund the Pentagon and U.S. military. Surprise? (Especially since the military tends to lean Conservative)

The U.S. could become a garrison state, pulling back to within its borders like a paranoid survivalist, armed to the teeth with high-tech weapons and ready to gun down anyone and everyone fleeing their storm-ravaged homes and collapsing ecosystems. In many ways, this transition has already begun.
