Life finds a way…again! Environmental alarmism, emperor penguin edition

Sun, 04/28/2019 - 22:13

There’s a new story flying around from The Independent on a colony of emperor penguins that was “effectively wiped out overnight” after a storm broke up the ice they were nesting on in Antarctica. Scientists say they see no signs of breeding in the area:

The world’s 2nd largest emperor penguin colony is believed to have been effectively wiped out overnight, with 1000s of chicks drowning after an ice shelf in Antarctica collapsed. Since the collapse in 2016, no breeding has been detected in the area. https://t.co/owl72VmAIF

— Andrew Kimmel (@andrewkimmel) April 28, 2019

This is so sad, the people who didn’t read the article tweeted:

This has me in tears.

— Debra Miller (@Ddm4zebraDebra) April 28, 2019

And it’s the “end of the emperors”:

End of emperors. https://t.co/HlO80kEqnH

— Virginia Heffernan (@page88) April 28, 2019

Dumb humans, obviously!

This is so very tragic, the loss of these majestic creatures. What a mess we are making of our planet. https://t.co/Ot9aPb8a6G

— Susan McPherson (@susanmcp1) April 28, 2019

Now for the good news! The birds are safe and happily breeding at a nearby colony, which you’d know if you read the article and not just the headline:

While the Halley Bay colony has now all but disappeared, the nearby Dawson-Lambton colony has markedly increased in size, indicating that many of the adult emperors have moved there, seeking better breeding grounds as environmental conditions continue to change.

The birds’ rapid relocation to a more stable breeding ground is significant and is encouraging, the scientists say, as until now it was not known whether the penguins would seek alternative sites in response to significant changes in their local environment.

Life finds a way . . . again!

‘Not to distract from your shared hatred’: NBC had Sally Yates on, and betcha can’t guess what they didn’t ask her

Sun, 04/28/2019 - 19:24

Remember Sally Yates?

She was deputy attorney general during the Obama administration and was fired by President Trump after the 2016 election because she refused to do her job.

“Meet the Press” had her on Sunday to talk about (what else?) Trump and obstruction of justice.

EXCLUSIVE: Former U.S. Dep Attorney Gen Sally Yates says, "I've personally prosecuted obstruction (of justice) cases on far, far less evidence than this"@SallyQYates: "If he were not the president of the united states, he would likely be indicted on obstruction" pic.twitter.com/h4EMNKe2dc

— Meet the Press (@MeetThePress) April 28, 2019

But the odd thing is that NBC host Andrea Mitchell forgot to ask her about what she knew regarding the Obama Justice Department’s involvement with the Russia collusion narrative and how it got started.

Not to distract from your shared hatred of Trump but please tell us you asked real questions about her involvement in disseminating and weaponizing the Russia Collusion conspiracy theory.

— Mollie (@MZHemingway) April 28, 2019

Another huge attaboy to the mainstream media for yet again going for the objective analysis on the issues that matter to average Americans and not being afraid to ask the tough questions.

It doesn’t get any more objective than someone who refused to do her job by defying President Trump, and led a coup against Gen Flynn on the absurd Logan Act rationale https://t.co/j9ZnO35eaY

— Benjamin Weingarten (@bhweingarten) April 28, 2019

And note the timing of Yates’ appearance on network television.

The fact she’s resurfacing on Trump-hostile news shows just weeks before the release of what’s expected to be a devastating report from the DOJ IG about how she and other Obama officials abused the FISA process is not a coincidence: https://t.co/YhH4AqBXFk

— Julie Kelly (@julie_kelly2) April 28, 2019

Brennan, McCabe and Yates making the rounds in the media this past week after new text messages from Strzok and Page were released and ahead of AG Barr's hearings this coming week. Interesting. https://t.co/KtXClzGHPn

— Ryan Van Sickle ⭐⭐⭐ (@Ryan_VanSickle) April 28, 2019

Mitchell was probably going to ask Yates about her knowledge of and involvement in the propagation of the Russia collusion story but just ran out of time.

Just like Hillary was going to win the 2016 election but just ran out of states.

AWKWARD: Dan Pfeiffer so OUTRAGED over Trump’s ‘damn dangerous’ infanticide comments, there’s just 1 problem

Sun, 04/28/2019 - 13:26

Poor ol’ Obama Bro Dan Pfeiffer … he seems upset with the comments Trump made about infanticide at his rally in Wisconsin last night.

Trump is so damn dangerous. He is going to get people hurt with this stuff https://t.co/WpFxbBoLi0

— Dan Pfeiffer (@danpfeiffer) April 28, 2019

We don’t disagree with Dan, this commentary is ‘damn dangerous.’

Granted, Dan missed that Trump was actually just quoting Democratic Governor Ralph ‘Blackface’ Northam but still, pretty damn dangerous. But we knew Democrat were dangerous, especially for the unborn.

By accurately describing what @RalphNortham said? Cc @PolitiBunny https://t.co/6Pnn30PBOU

— (((Aaron Worthing))) (@AaronWorthing) April 28, 2019

Northam said: “The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.’

Too bad Dan is angrier at Trump for quoting Northam than he is about Northam’s gross comments about infants surviving botched abortions.

That's cute. Now do Gov Ralph Northam, who said that and actually meant it.

— Geoff Geoffery (@_TheDailyGeoff) April 28, 2019

Nah, he’s far too busy pretending Trump is the crazy and dangerous one.

Dan doesn’t like when ppl he supports are quoted nearly-verbatim.

The left has lost their minds. I am in no way a fan of Trump, but I am amazed at the vitriol the Left spews as they worship Obama and his love of Russia and the division that took place in this country under him.

Tommy Vietor blames President Trump for measles outbreak in California

Sat, 04/27/2019 - 11:54

In an effort to stop the measles outbreak in California, over 1000 students and staff at UCLA and Cal State Los Angeles are under quarantine after having been possibly exposed to the virus:

More than 1,000 students and staffers remain under quarantine as the measles outbreak spread across two of California’s biggest state universities. @mollymhunter has the story. pic.twitter.com/3trdVAQGvl

— TODAY (@TODAYshow) April 27, 2019

President Trump urged people to get vaccinated before he left for the NRA convention on Friday, saying “They have to get the shot. The vaccinations are so important.”

President Trump on measles outbreak: "They have to get the shot. The vaccinations are so important." pic.twitter.com/C3ZMJ4Srf1

— NBC News (@NBCNews) April 26, 2019

Obama bro Tommy Vietor, however, is mad that the coverage is apolitical and blamed the president for the outbreak, calling Trump “the world’s most famous anti-vaxxer”:

The measles outbreak coverage is oddly apolitical. Blame for ebola was placed squarely on Obama (including by Trump). Meanwhile, Trump is the world's most famous anti-vaxxer and is clearly part of the problem

— Tommy Vietor (@TVietor08) April 26, 2019

Yes, the president has tweeted before on autism and vaccinations, but he’s never been totally against vaccinations:

So many people don’t understand I am a big proponent of vaccines for children—just not in one massive dose—spread them out over time.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 9, 2014

To all haters and losers: I am NOT anti-vaccine, but I am against shooting massive doses into tiny children. Spread shots out over time.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 29, 2014

For comparison purposes on dates, Sally Kohn wrote in 2015 that she didn’t get her daughter vaccinated and that she regretted it. She wrote back then:

So to be honest, when my mom—a mathematician with a fast Internet connection who I love deeply and trust implicitly—sent us a 46-page report on the pros but mostly cons of vaccines, it just seemed like one less decision to make. “In most cases the risk of harm to a healthy, breast-fed infant from a vaccination far exceeds the risk of harm from the disease itself,” my mom wrote on page 1.

The following pages seemed very convincing. The statistics made it look like it was far more likely for our daughter to be hurt by the side effects of the vaccines than to catch the various diseases against which the vaccines protected. We didn’t consult any other sources. We were overwhelmed, and perhaps slightly lazy, new parents.

We were also singularly, obsessively concerned with the health and safety of our baby girl. Suddenly my partner and I were solely in charge of an entire human being, one who seemed somehow more fragile than other babies we’d known, because this one was relying on no one but us for her sustenance and survival.

But, sure . . . blame Trump.

The Secret Service is investigating a man who threw a cellphone at President Trump during his NRA speech

Sat, 04/27/2019 - 01:21

Secret Service agents detained a man who threw a cellphone at President Trump while he addressed the NRA convention in Indianapolis, IN earlier today. From Townhall’s Katie Pavlich:

A man threw a cell phone on stage when President Trump walked out for his @nra speech. He threw it stage left, while POTUS was closer to stage right. The man hung around up front for a few minutes, carrying Mt. Dew, as POTUS started remarks and then Secret Service removed him.

$leepy Joe Biden scores big ‘first 24 hours’ fundraising win over Bernie and Beto

Fri, 04/26/2019 - 23:32

It’s official: Joe Biden won the “first 24 hours” fundraising competition with $6.3 million in donations, more than that of Bernie Sanders and Beto O’Rourke:

I asked: the @JoeBiden $6.3M in first 24 hours does not include general election contributions, per campaign.

It doesn’t look he’ll have any problems raising money:

Biden says he raised $6.3M in first 24 hours – $200k more than Beto O'Rourke, and $400k more than Bernie Sanders did in theirs. And that's w/o as much online fundraising.

This means he's raised more than anyone in the field aside from Sanders, Harris, O'Rourke & Buttigieg.

— Edward-Isaac Dovere (@IsaacDovere) April 26, 2019

The $6.3 million was from a whopping 96,926 donors:

THERE it is! USA Today next up to give AOC a ‘Republicans pounce’ assist with her deleted ‘blunder’

Fri, 04/26/2019 - 14:08

As we told you earlier this week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez attempted to dunk on Republicans with a tweet about the GOP posing an “older male member” of the party next to a cardboard cutout of her. However, AOC’s dunk attempt turned into an epic faceplant after it was noticed the “Republican” in the photo was actually her Democrat colleague, Rep. John Yarmuth. After that, AOC couldn’t reach the “delete” key fast enough.

But the MSM being the MSM, ABC News took a “Republicans pounce” angle to the story, and they’re not alone, as evidenced by USA Today:

OMG-ROFL! Mitch McConnell makes this ‘vow’ about any and all socialist legislation and AOC flips the eff OUT

Fri, 04/26/2019 - 13:41

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has vowed to protect this country from socialist legislation. Well, he was far more colorful in his vow …

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell vows to be “Grim Reaper” for socialist legislation https://t.co/3pMcUG50pf pic.twitter.com/epJT7mpmH9

— CNN Politics (@CNNPolitics) April 22, 2019

From CNN:

Speaking at an event in Owensboro, Kentucky, McConnell, who is up for re-election, told his constituents that as Senate majority leader he is uniquely positioned to block socialist policies that he warned many on the left wing of the Democratic Party are pushing.

“We are having a legitimate debate about the virtues of socialism and I don’t want you to think it’s just a 28-year-old congresswoman from New York. This is much broader than that. I’ve got five colleagues in the Senate, five colleagues running for president, who have signed on to the Green New Deal and Medicare For All,” he said.

Yeah, AOC, we’re pretty sure he was trolling you.

And it worked.

Step 1: Call yourself the “Grim Reaper for socialist legislation”

Step 2: Call anything + everything “socialist legislation”

Step 3: Profit…

From CNBC:

The U.S. economy grew at a faster pace than expected in the first quarter, according to data released by the U.S. government on Friday.

First-quarter GDP expanded by 3.2% in the first quarter, the Bureau of Economic Analysis said. Economists polled by Dow Jones expected the U.S. economy had grown by 2.5% in the first quarter. It was also the first time since 2013 that first-quarter GDP topped 3%.

Disposable personal income increased by 3%, while prices increased by 1.3% when excluding food and energy. Overall prices climbed by 0.8% in the first quarter.  

Wow! Disposable personal income is EXACTLY what is needed in our communities folks, and it grew 3% in the first quarter of this year alone.

Between Rod Rosenstein calling Obama out to these new Strzok-Page texts, MAYBE justice will stop being conveniently blind.

It could happen.

But like many of you, we’re not exactly holding our breath.

Ruh-roh: Strzok-Page texts suggested using post-election briefing to gather information on Trump team https://t.co/Tkj29IyjCT

— Mollie (@MZHemingway) April 26, 2019

From Fox News:

Text messages between former FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page indicate they discussed using briefings to the Trump team after the 2016 election to identify people they could “develop for potential relationships,” track lines of questioning and “assess” changes in “demeanor” – language one GOP lawmaker called “more evidence” of irregular conduct in the original Russia probe.

Fox News has learned the texts, initially released in 2018 by a Senate committee, are under renewed scrutiny, with GOP Sens. Chuck Grassley and Homeland Security Committee chair Ron Johnson sending a letter Thursday night to Attorney General Bill Barr pushing for more information on the matter.

“Any improper FBI surveillance activities that were conducted before or after the 2016 election must be brought to light and properly addressed,” the senators wrote.

Brought to light and properly addressed.

Gosh, guys, that would be nice for a change.

An important development. What was the FBI up to in grooming sources inside the Trumo transition?https://t.co/piHEnyOG9K

Good question.

Yeah, we’re all totally shocked.

Heh.

Will anyone else in the US media cover any of these stories?

— Keith W. Preston (@KeithWpreston) April 26, 2019

Ruh Roh is right

— J Stutz (@JohnStutsman77) April 26, 2019

You’d think.

This is getting good. Let the fireworks begin.

— Screwball McAdams (@StevenKlaszky) April 26, 2019

Crosses fingers.

When history of 2016 is written, & we look back 30 to 50 years from now, Obama & Clinton will not be reflected in a good light.

Media love to use Watergate analogies. I won’t do that, but this will be a scandal like no other in history as party in power spied on opponent.

— Neil Axelrod (@NeilAxelrod) April 26, 2019

These people are down right disgraceful and have really put a bad name on the FBI

I hope they finally do something.

True story.

We shall see.

Remember when Mitt Romney debated Obama and talked about what a huge threat Russia was? How badly Obama mocked him? How the media then helped Obama mock him? What was it he said, ‘The 80’s called, they want their foreign policy back’.

Yeah, that’s it.

Of course, he didn’t.

Russia/USSR interfered in elections since creation after WW1. Social media tactics used in most recent elections in Europe. Chair of DNC made his emails vulnerable. For current Chair to say “We are at war” irresponsible and deliberate exaggeration. Others states interfere too!

‘TERRIBLY clumsy and unfair’! Dan Crenshaw takes Liz Warren’s ‘student loan forgiveness’ malarkey APART in HEAP BIG brutal way

Thu, 04/25/2019 - 13:33

Liz Warren’s big agenda item for conning people into voting for her in 2020 (besides reparations) is pushing the elimination of student loan debt. In essence, Liz’s platform is all about the many ways she can buy peoples’ votes.

Student loan debt is crushing millions of families. That’s why I’m calling for something truly transformational: Universal free college and the cancellation of debt for more than 95% of Americans with student loan debt. Read all about it here: https://t.co/IG9J5CiNb7

— Elizabeth Warren (@ewarren) April 22, 2019

There’s just one big problem with her ‘plan’. Ok, so there are several problems with this hot mess BUT the biggest problem of all is who this policy would actually help. Rep. Dan Crenshaw was more than happy to lay it out for Liz in case, you know, she missed it.

Loan forgiveness for people making up to $250k?

This plan effectively asks all Americans, many of whom never got a degree, to give their tax dollars to people who CHOSE to take out a student loan so that they COULD get a job paying $250k a year.

Terribly clumsy & unfair policy. https://t.co/QEBslfT1Xa

— Rep. Dan Crenshaw (@RepDanCrenshaw) April 23, 2019

Elitism promoted and facilitated by the government.

It’s the Democrats’ way.

In her article she says K-12 is free to everyone. If that’s true then why am I always having people come to my door with fundraisers?!

— Matt Dawson (@SaintRPh) April 23, 2019

And technically it AIN’T free. Where does she think funding for public schools comes from? The magical money tree?

And what about us that have replayed our student loans? We’re having to pay for those that haven’t. It’s a joke.

— Marshall Taylor (@MarshallTMusic) April 24, 2019

It’s sort of like immigrants who came to this country legally, right? Those who have repaid their student loans put in the work, they followed the rules and now Liz wants the government to look the other way for those who have NOT repaid their debt so she can buy their votes. Granted, deep down she knows Republicans will never let this fly and then she could just blame them when student debt doesn’t go away.

Looking at this policy, it seems Liz only cares about helping the WEALTHY.

Ain’t that a kick in the head?

As president, Kamala Harris vows to use executive actions on guns…because that worked out so well for Obama

Tue, 04/23/2019 - 18:28

At the CNN town hall last night, 2020 hopefull Kamala Harris pledged to use her power as president to issue executive actions on guns if Congress refuses to act:

Sen. Kamala Harris says if she is elected President, she will give Congress 100 days "to get their act together and have the courage to pass reasonable gun safety laws, and if they fail to do it, then I will take executive action" https://t.co/KFdn5Viqm1 #HarrisTownHall pic.twitter.com/Ds8DxObhAY

Dems only hate this idea when it’s a Republican, however:

This, right here, is our bipartisan problem. This is exactly the argument Obama made with DACA, and it’s the argument Trump has made with the wall. The problem isn’t partisan, it’s structural. And it’s getting worse. https://t.co/hBT7TT0T3N

— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) April 23, 2019

If Congress “refuses to act,” nothing happens. Congress makes the laws. If it declines to do so, the status quo obtains. The president is not a monarch, and he does not magically inherit legislative powers in such cases as the legislature displeases him.

— Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) April 23, 2019

What she’s also missing here is that Obama tried to go the executive action route and still didn’t accomplish what he wanted to accomplish. Maybe she should at least acknowledge that there’s not much she can do?

Valerie Jarrett, former senior adviser to President Obama, says his administration "did what we could do by executive action" on gun reform, adding that she believes Congress will now "be forced to act" #MarchForOurLives https://t.co/Pj9OTXHFHR

Relax everyone, the Krassenstein brothers have weighed in on the Mueller report

Tue, 04/23/2019 - 00:38

After Thursday’s release of the nearly 2 years long Robert Mueller snipe hunt a number of media figures embarrassed themselves while writhing to extricate themselves from culpability. As they tried to out-humiliate each other a question had been posed: Have the Krassensteins weighed in on this matter?!

While avoidance is always the pragmatic decision in these cases sometimes you have to reach out and touch the fire, just to be reminded. And so exploring the Bieber Brothers today has been a revealing look into what oblivious delusion looks like.

Congress needs to make it a crime to "knowingly allow a foreign government to help a political campaign." Otherwise Russia will elect Trump president once again in 2020, since he's doing nothing to stop them.

Who's with me?

— Ed Krassenstein (@EdKrassen) April 21, 2019

There is the temptation to alert Eddie The Kruiser here of Hillary’s willing participation with the Ruskies and Ukrainians in 2016, but that may send Eddie into a tailspin.

If you read the Mueller report and you still think that Trump is exonerated, then you didn't actually read the Mueller report.

— Ed Krassenstein (@EdKrassen) April 22, 2019

The investigation did not establish that the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government“.

That is in the report. In reading through this exhaustive volume in order to uncover that particular phrase one would have to delve all the way to…PAGE TWO of the report.

If we don't impeach Donald Trump, we set a precedent that all future presidents can obstruct justice and willingly accept help from foreign enemies. If you support Trump, ask yourself how you will react if a future Democratic candidate accepts help from ISIS to win an election.

— Ed Krassenstein (@EdKrassen) April 22, 2019

Enemies?! Are we wrong remembering President Obama established in the debate with Mitt that Russia was no longer our enemy?

It’s sickening that the GOP is now OK with cooperating with our enemies to win elections. Every American should we fed up with this madness.

— Ed Krassenstein (@EdKrassen) April 21, 2019

What makes this part so damned funny is that Mueller spent nearly two years and came up with nothing to show cooperation. Yet it has been widely reported — that is, proven — that Hillary obtained oppo-research from the Russians. Not sickening, not madness, mind you.

For…?? Coming up empty-handed? Clearing the President for reelection? Unplugging 2+ years of media subterfuge??

Hillary Clinton should donate her voice to an audio book which reads the Mueller Report.

All proceeds can go to reimburse the millions stolen by Trump University from clients.

Whenever Hillary reads Trump's name she can hysterically starter laughing.

Who would buy one?

— Brian Krassenstein (@krassenstein) April 22, 2019

You have to appreciate Bri closing this insipidness with a rhetorical, as if aware nobody would drop a dime on such. But then he thinks Hillary even wants to go anywhere near this after her Steele dossier has been outed as a farce that she funded.

Lets pretend that there really was "No collusion" & "no obstruction" despite the report saying otherwise.

The Fact that Trump sought help from Russia, got help from Russia, embraced help from Russia, didn't report help from Russian, then lied to America about it, is IMPEACHABLE!

— Brian Krassenstein (@krassenstein) April 22, 2019

It is an amazing thing to see — two minds who think as one, and yet together cannot manage enough cerebral thought to amount to full brain power.
