Goodbye, DiFi. I would have preferred you to remain until the end of your term as you had planned, the better to keep the seat warm and non-functional.

The cults crap is all emotion and praying at the altar of global warming -

For billions of human beings on the planet Earth, the "Just Stop Oil" and "Just Stop Fossil Fuels" movements really do equate to: just stop life. No matter what the seemingly entitled, rich-kid protesters may pretend to believe, the reality is billions of people the world over depend upon fossil fuels for their very survival. Period.

Sadly — and quite dangerously — "climate change" has morphed from science to a religion for many on the left. Anyone questioning any aspect of the tenets of that newfound faith are branded heretics and excommunicated by the high priests of "green" energy.

Now, as "climate change" is being used as a catch-all explanation for a growing number of issues on earth, some on the left are calling scientists who question the "evidence" and computer models — remember them as the drivers of the panic over COVID — "climate dissidents," "climate deniers" or worse

Last month, as recently reported in Real Clear Investigations, more than 1,600 scientists, among them two Nobel physics laureates, Drs. John F. Clauser and Ivar Giaever of Norway, signed a declaration stating that there is no climate emergency, and that climate advocacy has devolved into mass hysteria.

The skeptics say the radical transformation of entire societies is marching forth without a full debate, based on dubious scientific claims amplified by knee-jerk journalism.

But for the high priests of Climate Change Religion, the education and real-world experience of these scientists seemingly does not matter. Much like the 1939 movie "The Wizard of Oz," many on the left are screaming: "Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain, pulling the levers that control the voice of the Great Oz. Listen only to the Great Oz."

Today, the "Great Oz of Climate Change" does threaten to make life on earth dramatically worse for billions of people and no one is allowed to question his policies.

Why? What are the "green energy" zealots so afraid of? The truth?

No matter their refusal to debate, I still have a few questions for the Great Oz of Climate Change and his disciples:

Is the mad rush to "save the planet" more about panicking the public and politicians into ceding more and more control to the high priests of climate change than it is about actual science?

Are the Biden administration and the United Nations flat-out lying to us regarding how much of the land in the U.S. must be sacrificed to build "sustainable" solar and wind farms which often dramatically underperform?

Are we talking about a few hundred thousand acres of land or are we really talking about tens of millions of acres to get to the fictional "net-zero" goal of halving U.S. carbon emissions by 2035 and achieving net-zero emissions by 2050?

What happens to the tens of millions of wildlife species which live and depend upon those millions of acres for survival? What happens to the farmland and our food supply? What happens to the massive batteries and the toxic waste they produce?

What happens if — and when — nations such as China, Russia, India and others simply ignore the net-zero mandate? Wouldn’t that make the U.S. and every other nation who followed the policy "net-zero" chumps?

For that reason, aren’t a number of nations that signed onto the "net-zero" goal now slow-walking or ignoring the policy because they believe it punishes their citizens of today?

Isn’t much of the frenzy surrounding climate change really just an elaborate excuse by some on the left to kill the fossil fuel industry no matter the real consequences for the billions of people and hundreds of thousands of employers who depend on fossil fuels for survival and to stay in business?
There are more questions which can be asked of the high priests of climate change, but then, that is precisely the point. They don’t want those questions asked. They don’t want debate. They don’t want investigations.

They don’t care about your opinion.

They simply want to turn off the main source of power for the planet Earth and ask you to trust them … or else.

Some Idiot 9/28/23 at 11:37 : "Bwahahahaha!
"Republicans’ long shot attempt to impeach President Joe Biden got off to a rocky start Thursday, with their star witness, legal expert Jonathan Turley, outright saying he doesn’t see any evidence to support impeachment."

The problem is that we are dealing with morons with little intelligence and no understanding of the English language.

Turley:
"While many have noted that I stated that I do not view the current evidence as sufficient for articles of impeachment, that is hardly surprising. This was the first hearing of the inquiry and was called to address why the threshold for an inquiry had been established. I was also asked to address the constitutional standards and best practices going forward. Indeed, I criticized the last two impeachments for prematurely declaring impeachable conduct without fully developing a record to support such articles. This hearing returned the impeachment process to a type of regular order in reserving judgment until all of the evidence could be acquired by the three committees."

I would suggest all you lefties actually read all of what Turley has to say instead of licking up Biden's behind while you get your information from other Biden Butt-Lickers.

Here's the latest from Trump, the favorite Republican candidate by far for President.

"So, let me ask you," Trump said in his rally speech. "Let's say a boat goes down and I'm sitting on top of a big powerful battery and the boat is going down, do I get electrocuted? ... But if I'm sitting down and that boat's going down and I'm on top of a battery, and the water starts flooding in, I'm getting concerned. But then I look ten yards to my left and there's a shark over there. So I have a choice of electrocution or a shark. You know what I'm going to take? Electrocution. I'll take electrocution every single time. Do we agree? But these people are crazy."

Well, well, well they acknowledge the suppression of freedom of speech in education -

Few Americans say conservatives can speak freely on college campuses, an AP-NORC/UChicago poll shows

Overall, 47% of adults say liberals have “a lot” of freedom to express their views on college campuses, while just 20% said the same of conservatives, according to polling from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and the University of Chicago Forum for Free Inquiry and Expression.

Let's see a show of hands from the 2016 voters forTrump,

“What can I add that has not already been said?” Kelly said, when asked if he wanted to weigh in on his former boss in light of recent comments made by other former Trump officials. “A person that thinks those who defend their country in uniform, or are shot down or seriously wounded in combat, or spend years being tortured as POWs are all ‘suckers’ because ‘there is nothing in it for them.’ A person that did not want to be seen in the presence of military amputees because ‘it doesn’t look good for me.’ A person who demonstrated open contempt for a Gold Star family – for all Gold Star families – on TV during the 2016 campaign, and rants that our most precious heroes who gave their lives in America’s defense are ‘losers’ and wouldn’t visit their graves in France.

“A person who is not truthful regarding his position on the protection of unborn life, on women, on minorities, on evangelical Christians, on Jews, on working men and women,” Kelly continued. “A person that has no idea what America stands for and has no idea what America is all about. A person who cavalierly suggests that a selfless warrior who has served his country for 40 years in peacetime and war should lose his life for treason – in expectation that someone will take action. A person who admires autocrats and murderous dictators. A person that has nothing but contempt for our democratic institutions, our Constitution, and the rule of law.

“There is nothing more that can be said,” Kelly concluded. “God help us.”

"Let's see a show of hands from the 2016 voters forTrump"

As opposed to voting for Hillary? You are in outer space.
When you Dems set the bar that low, a whole host of folks I don't really like become my choice for POTUS.

As we all remember, the vast majority of military were all in for Trump when he was in office. And our country was in much better shape in so many ways. You Trump-obsessed haters can enjoy piling on while our country goes down the tube with a crooked, incompetent bunch of leftists running DC. The fed govt is sucking up all the capital to pay its debt and the Dems are trying to outspend the Rs.
I conclude way before Kelly: "God help us".

Gregory

What? No recordings of audio or video to back up Kelly's four+ year old recollections?

Why hold them back so long?

Paul Emery

Great fun to watch the Republican Party destroy itself on live tv and beg the Dems for help. Lots of fun. Got a good seat. Too early for pop corn though.

Paul Emery


Just watched Speaker McCarthy walking accros the floor with his mouth open and his eyes bulging knowing he'll have to beg Dems for support to keep his position. Great fun. the Repubs sure are entertaining.

Gregory

Grow up, Punch.

Paul Emery


Sorry Gregory but it's very entertaining to watch Trump and the MAGA Republicans grovelling. Also with the exception of your snarky and irrelevant response there is total silence from the Trumpers and MAGA's that inhabit this blag. What a hoot.

I know it's hard for you Gregory but this has been in the works for awhile and you chose to ignore it.

Gregory

No, you're not sorry about anything.

Politics isn't just another sport to cheer.

Barry Pruett

Paul, I have two questions. How do you feel about the USA being $33 trillion in debt? What should be done to address the situation?

Paul Emery


Very good question.

Two things have to happen for a start

Higher taxes for the wealthy-repeal Trumps tax cuts
Less spending

Just a reminder the last time the Repubs were in total control was under Trump and that increased the debt by 7 Trillion in four years so Trump and the Repubs didn't have an answer.

dems aren't doing any better by the way.

No matter what it will take time


This link will provide you with a recent history of debt increase under Trump

Paul has no kids, has no grandkids.

No ties to the future at all.

McCarthy is out.

Paul Emery

Yep. He was dumped by the Repubs. They have the majority and they blew it. Who would you like to see be Speaker of the House?

Individual Juan

Barry P. How do you feel about Trump's tax cuts and how that contributed to the debt?

Gregory

He was primarily dumped by Democrats, Paul, but that doesn't fit your template.

McCarthy could come back. Steve Scalise has a following too, but he's not in great physical shape.

Well Gregory in order to reverse a deficit you have to both decrease spending and increase income. How you you propose we increase income?

Gregory

Your first pass was increasing taxes on the rich only.

My first pass will be stopping pointless wars.

Gregory

Second pass... stop all Green New Deal silliness. Drill baby drill. Drive down energy prices, stop the EV car insanity. Let folk buy them without coercion.

...stop all Green New Deal silliness. Drill baby drill. Drive down energy prices, stop the EV car insanity. Let folk buy them without coercion.


BLASPHEMER!!!

Gregory

Ya, you betcha.

Paul Emery


Gregory quote

"My first pass will be stopping pointless wars."

So Gregory I assume you're including the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and lets toss in the Vietnam War.

Are you including our support for Ukraine?

Can you be more specific?

Gregory

The Viet Nam war has been stopped, Paul, assumed you knew that.

Paul Emery

So what wars specifically are you referring to? And by the way did you support the Vietnam War?

Gregory

What wars are we currently fighting, personally or by proxy?

Paul Emery


Gregory


So are we currently engaged in any "pointless wars" as you define them? What"pointless Wars" from the past are you referring to?

Your quote:

"My first pass will be stopping pointless wars. "

Gregory

A pointless war is a war that cannot be won.

Past wars have already been stopped, have they not?

Paul Emery

So when you say "My first pass will be stopping pointless wars" you are referring to wars in the future and not to our current support for the war in Ukraine? Is that correct?

Gregory

What will "victory" look like in Ukraine, Punch?

Paul Emery


Russia retreating to their own country and respecting Ukraine as an independent state.

Gregory

Funny guy! Including the Donbas region? Crimea?

Gregory

So, Punchy... you want to fight the Russians down to the last Ukrainian soldier?

Scott O

Paul 2:13 - "Higher taxes for the wealthy-repeal Trumps tax cuts
Less spending"

How much higher? Rates or actual dollars? How much less spending? Where would you cut?

Does Paul have any understanding of how underwater we are with our deficits or why?
No.
I like to read Paul's posts because he does truly represent the idiot American know-nothing voter. It's good to know where the problem lies.
Even funnier:
"Russia retreating to their own country and respecting Ukraine as an independent state."
And unless that happens?
Grrrrrr
"war, war, war!" sez Paul the newly minted war monger.
How about China and Tibet? Should China retreat to their own country and respect Tibet as an independent state?
Different? Why is it different?
Ah, because China would clean our clock.
And - they own our current sitting head potato.
Too bad Milley is gone - he was telephone buddies with his commie friends in China.

Paul Emery

So Scott what do you propose we do about the situation in Ukraine?

Also why didn't you raise the alarm when Trump went 7 Trillion in the red in only 4 years. Not a peep from you or the Repubs. Why was that?

Paul Emery


What do you propose should be our policy in dealing with the situation in Ukraine? You have yet to propose anything.

Paul Emery


7:32 was for Gregory

Paul Emery


Gregory, Scott

Did you support the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Paul Emery

Gregory

I am a Green Libertarian. As of now we don't have an organized political party. We believe that it should be part of our human traits to protect the land that sustains us naturally without the need for government action. When we don't do that it our survival then requires that the government assumes that role.

Personally I am a Diest and we believe that God created nature and nature created us therefore we need to protect nature because it was our creator

Gregory

Punch, a party of one is no party at all.

You are a Green. Greens are socialist in nature, not free marketeers.

I have read quite a bit about Deism and the American founders. I'm surprised you know nothing about it.

Gregory

"I do and I doubt you do."

You are dumber than you look.

Paul Emery

AS a start Gregory have you read the Jefferson Bible? Do you know anything about it?

Here's a link. Check it out

https://thejeffersonbible.com/

Paul Emery

This is a simple statement that describes Jeffersons deist influence:

"Thomas Jefferson, together with several of his fellow founding fathers, was influenced by the principles of deism, a construct that envisioned a supreme being as a sort of watchmaker who had created the world but no longer intervened directly in daily life."

https://www.smithsonianmag.com/arts-culture/how-thomas-jefferson-created-his-own-bible-5659505/

Gregory

I'm familiar. I prefer Jefferson's recipe for Mac and cheese.

Paul Emery

Have you ever read the Jefferson Bible Gregory?

Gregory

Yes, I have.
The Mac and cheese is excellent.

Gregory

Punchy... have you ever baked Jefferson's macaroni and cheese?

Have you ever read the Jefferson Bible Gregory?


….sssssshhh…..I love this part!

This is where Punch tries to start steering the conversation! In a mere four, perhaps five posts and you won’t hear anything else about “Diesm” or the Jefferson Bible. At that point every comment will be about the only thing in the world that he truly cares about….his Bad Orange 🍊 man:


(hushed golf announcer voice)


Let’s watch…….

Paul Emery

Gregory

You have proven that indeed you know nothing about Deism therefore you were lying when you said:


"I do and I doubt you do." when asked asked your knowledge about Deism.

Gregory

the green libertine has a comeback!

no punch, your quoting various websites did nothing to prove your bona fides on the subject.

Gregory

Now Punchy, back to the basics... have you ever followed Jefferson's Recipe for Macaroni and cheese?

Paul Emery

Gregory

You are making a fool of yourself Gregory. If you claim to have a knowledge of Deism and have not read of Jeffersons Bible you are lying when you say you are knowledgeable of Deism and our founding fathers. Can you list what you have read on that topic?

Gregory

Jefferson edited the New Testament cutting out miracles. I've known about it for decades.

Now, answer the question about Mac and cheese, which has had more lasting effects on the USA than his biblical cutting and pasting.

Paul Emery


Did you read it to inform yourself of what the bible means to Deists? It's actually very interesting. I sent you a link to make it easy for you.
