  • Al Gore Wants to Spend $15 trillion to fight "global warming"

    Daily Caller ^ | 04/25/2017 | Michael Bastach
    A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. The Energy Transitions Commission’s (ETC) report claims “additional investments of around $300-$600 billion per annum do not pose a major macroeconomic challenge,” which they say will help the world meet the goals laid out in the Paris agreement. ETC is made up of energy executives, activist leaders and investment bankers, including former Vice President Al Gore, who would no doubt...

    Perhaps it is my skepticism, but the "usual suspects," I.e. Lindsey Graham Cracker, John McLame, Clinton News Network, Nancy Botox Pelosi, Cuck Schumer, etc. Now supporting Trump after the air-strike. Makes me mighty suspicious.
  • AUDIO: Obama Admin Is ‘Going After’ Gun Dealers [VIDEO]

    The Obama administration’s Operation Choke Point program targets gun and ammunition dealers and tries to make life “miserable” for businesses that it doesn’t like, a payment processor told a Choke Point victim in jarring new audio. Operation Choke Point is a program by which the Department of Justice works with other administration agencies, including the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, to force banks to shut down accounts of businesses that it objects to. The program purports to fight fraudulent businesses, but has instead targeted many gun and ammunition dealers and other lawful businesses.

    MIT Technology Review ^ | 12/23/2014 | Kevin Bullis
    Startup Seeo has developed batteries that store far more energy than conventional ones, which could extend the range of electric cars. An experimental lithium-ion battery based on materials developed at a U.S. Department of Energy lab stores twice as much energy as the batteries used in most electric cars. If the technology can be commercialized, it could give affordable electric cars a range of over 200 miles per charge, says Hal Zarem, CEO of Seeo, a startup that’s working on the technology. Today the cheapest electric cars, which cost around $30,000, typically have a range of less than 100 miles....

    The presidential race this year offers a study in contrasts. On the one hand in John McCain we have a war hero who endured torture and terrorism as a prisoner of the communist regime of North Vietnam. On the other hand in Barack Obama we have a candidate of Marxist background who has allied himself with anti-American terrorists. The choice is between America's candidate and the candidate of America's enemies. 1. Obama's Marxist background includes (a) his parents, his father a theoretical communist and his mother a fellow traveler; (b) his Hawaiin mentor Frank Marshall Davis, member of the CPUSA;...

    Stop sending me stuff. It's because of your "maverick" behavior that we are in the condition we are in. You stabbed a great President in the back on numerous occassions. You, and the gang of 14 rendered our congressional majority into a bunch of eunuchs, singing soprano for the media and the beltway crowd. I'll probably be forced to vote for you, given the alternatives, however, just barely and only because you may not totally screw us on judges. Meanwhile, leave me alone.

    I just witnessed a car chase from the FOX helicopter feed around where I live. It was fast around Roscoe Blvd., Owensmouth Ave, De Soto Ave, etc. and ended on Topanga Blvd. where Chatsworth Park is near the hills. 12 police cars came by to stop it. Those were airborne videos. Note that this is near very dark. There is a ground video of men and women coming to the noise wondering WTF? I only take a lady to a beach in Ventura that makes hearts quiet.

    Rich must pay bulk of climate change bill: Oxfam By Jeremy Lovell 37 minutes ago Coping with the ravages of global warming will cost $50 billion a year, and the rich nations who caused most of the pollution must pay most of the bill, aid agency Oxfam said on Tuesday. The call, barely 10 days before a crucial Group of Eight (G8) summit in Germany which has climate change at its core, is likely to make already tense negotiations even tougher. The United States, which Oxfam says must foot 44 percent of the annual $50 billion bill, is rejecting attempts...

    By John Ruwitch YUNFU, China, May 18 (Reuters) - When some of her pigs stopped eating, it was Zhu Hongying's first sign that they were sick. She called a veterinarian, who diagnosed them with a fever and administered injections. Exactly what medicine they were given, she did not say, but the jabs didn't help. "The more shots they were given, the worse they got," Zhu said. "Their bodies turned black. About a week later, they died."
