Former Vice President Al Gore condemned President Trump’s decision to pull out of the Paris climate agreement in an interview Monday. “We’ve never had a president who´s deliberately made decisions the effect of which is tearing down America’s standing in the world,” Gore said on the "Today" show. The one-time Democratic presidential nominee also attacked Trump for “undermining our alliances” and damaging America’s reputation in “many ways.” Gore–who has spent most of his post-political career as a climate change activist–has occasionally weighed in on the president’s decisions. In December, during the
Comments: You know how when you overturn rocks in wet environments, sometimes these creepy-crawly things go scurrying away. While, that´s what the dRATS have done in leaving no stone unturned to find a "message" that resonates with their base. Problem is, as we see, Al Gore appears now, like 0bama last week. If only we could put them in a jar where they can do no harm, or is that a locked box???
All that flying around polluting the planet has warped Sweaty Armpits Gore! Memo to Gore: read the comments that foreign governments have made about Trump....they are glad that someone of his ilk is at the steering wheel! Not the pink, red, orange line tutu boy who has no clue about anything other than his little dirty agenda of bringing the USA to its knees!
HEY, the guy has become very wealthy lying to the American people. Do you really expect him to change his ways? Honestly? He is a certified liar, and he has been rewarded very handsomely for it. Why change? For the Left, truth is whatever you want it to be. But... there will be a day when truth will reveal all the liars, for what they are.
How many more Unabombers has Al Manbearpig Gore influenced? (For those of you puzzled by the manbearpig label for Gore, in an episode of South Park, Al Gore shows up and tries to convince the kids that a manbearpig is lurking and dangerous. "I´m cereal!" proclaimed a serious Al Gore. (Tt´s funnier than I can descibe.)
Paul Manafort, President Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, was being wiretapped by feds — not just once, but twice — as part of an FBI investigation into his dealings in Ukraine and Russia. The secret surveillance took place at a time when Manafort was in contact with Trump, all the way into 2017. And with that, Trump, who claimed that his Trump Tower had been wiretapped by Barack Obama in the lead-up to the election, is suddenly no longer the crazy dude the left made him to appear. Suddenly, it seems — hey now, maybe feds working under the Obama administration did catch Trump in some secret
There are many potential vulnerabilities in President Trump’s legal defense in the multipronged investigation into his Russian ties—Jared Kushner, Donald Trump Jr., Mike Flynn, Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, advisers Roger Stone and Carter Page, to name a few in Trump’s orbit—but former campaign chief Paul Manafort, so far, appears to be the biggest liability. On top of all we know already about Manafort’s shadowy overseas political consulting operation, CNN reported Monday that Manafort was under FBI surveillance dating back to 2014, well before he joined the Trump campaign.
The Senate has overwhelmingly approved a sweeping policy bill that would pump $700 billion into the military, putting the U.S. armed forces on track for a budget greater than at any time during the decade-plus wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Senators passed the legislation by a 89-8 vote Monday. The measure authorizes $700 billion in military spending for the fiscal year that begins Oct. 1, expands U.S. missile defenses in response to North Korea’s growing hostility and refuses to allow excess military bases to be closed. The 1,215-page measure defies a number of White House objections, but President Donald Trump hasn't
The art of the apology has become junk science, particularly in the entertainment business. Calibrating an apology is hard work, figuring out to whom the apology is aimed, and how much of it is sincere. A rule of thumb is that apologies are spoken to the wind, and none of them are sincere. ESPN, the sports network, is part of Disney entertainment enterprises, and last week one of its “anchors,” a $1.98 cent word for “announcer,” or “reader,” had to be disciplined by the network for telling her semi-vast following that “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/other white supremacists.” She said it in
Washington - U.S. President Donald Trump and his Chinese counterpart, Xi Jinping, agreed in a phone conversation Monday to exert maximum pressure on North Korea over its nuclear and ballistic missile program, the White House said. The two leaders discussed "North Korea´s continued defiance of the international community and its efforts to destabilize Northeast Asia," it said in a summary of the call that followed North Korea´s launch of another ballistic missile over Japan on Friday. "The two leaders committed to maximizing pressure on North Korea through vigorous enforcement of United Nations Security Council
Transgender troops can continue receiving transition-related medical treatment for now, the Pentagon said Monday, amid mounting challenges to President Donald Trump´s effective ban on funding such procedures as well as enlisting new openly transgender personnel. Trump blindsided the Pentagon in July when he tweeted that transgender troops, who had been allowed to serve openly under rules implemented by Barack Obama´s administration, would be barred from the military. The White House formalized the decree in an August 25 directive, but Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has ordered the current Obama-era policy remain
(Video) - When Hollywood’s elite get together, it’s almost expected for there to be some sort of discussion about America’s political climate and the controversial moments President Donald Trump and his cronies have stirred up since Trump´s November 2016 election. The 2017 Primetime Emmy Awards was no different, as plenty of high-profile celebrities used their platform to eloquently and passionately condemn Trump, the alt-right and white supremacy. Knocking political agendas wasn’t the only thing up for discussion for the TV industry’s A-list. During award acceptance speeches, actors like Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman advocated for gender equality, calling for more opportunities for women
(Video) - US troops were present when Russian warplanes bombed US backed anti-ISIS fighters in Syria on Saturday, two US officials told CNN, highlighting how close the two countries came to a major international incident. A team of US Special Operations Forces were advising US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces at the location the Russians struck in Deir Ezzor in eastern Syria, one US official said. US personnel were "at most a couple of miles" away from the where the bomb landed, the official added. The US troops provided medical care to members of the Syrian Democratic Forces that were wounded in the airstrike,
Sen. Rand Paul said Monday that he will not support the Republicans’ latest attempt at Obamacare’s replacement plan. “Graham/Cassidy keeps Obamacare and tells the states to run it. No thanks,” Mr. Paul, Kentucky Republican, tweeted. The Graham-Cassidy bill, sponsored by Sens. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, aims to reallocate the Obamacare funds into block grants for the states to build their own individual health insurance programs. It would also repeal Obamacare’s mandates and the medical device tax. “No consevative [sic] should vote for a rebranded trillion dollar spending program just
White House officials told foreign energy ministers Monday that President Trump still intends to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement unless the U.S. obtains “more favorable” terms. At a breakfast meeting on the sidelines of the annual United Nations general assembly in New York, White House economic adviser Gary Cohn and other officials emphasized that Mr. Trump’s position hasn’t changed, the White House said. “We are withdrawing from the Paris Agreement unless we can reengage on terms more favorable to the United States,” a senior White House official said. “This position was made very clear
President Trump on Monday said that the United Nations is not reaching its full potential during his first remarks before the international organization. "It has not reached its potential because of the bureacracy and mismanagement," he said in New York City. "Focus more on people, less on bureacracy." Trump encouraged member nations to take a "bold stand" against typical U.N. practices rather than "be beholden to the ways of the past which are not working." The president also criticized America´s return on investment from funding the U.N., arguing that it is "not seeing results in line with U.S. investment."
Faced with continuing issues with the local homeless population, officials in Costa Mesa have again floated the idea of installing new public restrooms that would provide a hygienic and safe place for transients to use. City Councilman John Stephens broached the topic during Friday’s meeting of a liaison committee made up of representatives from the city, Costa Mesa Sanitary District, Mesa Water and Newport-Mesa Unified School districts. The agencies, he said, could consider a pilot project to install one or two new restrooms away from parks where families gather. No specific locations were mentioned during the meeting.
Hillary Clinton told host Terry Gross on NPR’s “Fresh Air” Monday that she may challenge the results of the 2016 presidential election. “No, I wouldn’t rule it out,” Hillary said in a response to a question asking if she would “rule out questioning the legitimacy of this election.” Clinton stated that she believes the Russian government influenced the election in favor of Trump, and that this could make the outcome illegitimate. “[Trump knew] they were trying to do whatever they could to discredit me with emails, so there’s obviously a trail there… There’s no doubt they influenced the election: We now know more
A Texas woman has been getting ridiculed online for being “too sensitive” after she blasted the arts-and-crafts chain Hobby Lobby for selling faux raw cotton stalks — which she found offensive. “This decor is WRONG on SO many levels,” Daniell Rider posted on Facebook this past Thursday, along with a photo of the phony textile plants. “There is nothing decorative about raw cotton…A commodity which was gained at the expense of African-American slaves,” she said. “A little sensitivity goes a long way. PLEASE REMOVE THIS ‘decor.´” Rider, who is black, appeared to take the picture of the cotton herself
Poor Dana Milbank. For all of his life he has been the picture of perfect health. And then Donald Trump was elected President and completely ruined it to the point where he is now dying. Milbank discusses his health crises in his September 15 Washington Post column, President Trump is killing me. Really. President Trump is killing me. No, really. He’s killing me. It wasn´t one of his campaign promises but we´ll take it. I went for my annual physical last month, and, for the first time in my 49 years, I had to report that I’ve not been feeling
Georgia Tech police shot dead a barefoot student carrying a knife late on Saturday night. The student, 21-year-old Scout Schultz, who identified as gender non-binary, was seen walking toward police - who issued several warnings to drop what officers believed was a knife. The tense encounter was caught on camera - in which the student can be seen walking closer and closer to the police officers and shouting ´shoot me.´ (Snip) At Georgia Tech, Schultz was president of the school´s Pride Alliance, which is a student organization for LGBTQ students and allies. Schultz preferred ´they´ and ´them´ gender pronouns and identified
The 2017 Emmys Awards ceremony wasted no time getting political during Sunday’s opening segment, as host Stephen Colbert and friends made political jokes within the very first minute — and Colbert quickly accused President Trump of treason. Before his opening song, host Stephen Colbert chatted with Anthony Anderson and Allison Janney, and she complained about the current state of the world. The “Mom” actress mentioned global warming and fighting leaders, and joked that HBO was bringing back “the Confederacy,” a reference to the flap over HBO’s planned new drama series “Confederate.” Moments later, Colbert sang about the virtues of television,
The Big Idea: If I had to stock Hillary Clinton’s new memoir in a bookstore, I’d be tempted to place it in a section on self-help or bereavement. “What Happened” was quickly strip-mined for political nuggets after its publication last Tuesday. As I went through it over the weekend, though, what struck me most was how the wounded Democrat coped after her crushing defeat last November. In short, Clinton has read voraciously and eclectically — for escape, for solace and for answers. The collection of works that she cites across 494 pages showcases a top-flight intellect and would make for a compelling graduate school seminar.
People who claim to be shocked that Donald Trump is prepared to make an amnesty deal for the"Dreamers" -- most of whom are Mexicans who entered the USA at around the age of six -- are being more than a tad disingenuous. The president has been hinting as much for over a year to anyone paying attention. In fact, it´s hard to conceive how he could have done otherwise, considering the (excuse the cliché) "optics" of shipping 800,000 young people back to a homeland they may never have seen. The question is what your definition of amnesty is. It´s a
Hillary Clinton rejects the idea that a June 2016 meeting between her husband, former President Bill Clinton, and then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch critically damaged her White House bid. “I just don’t buy that,” Clinton said in a PBS interview aired Friday evening to promote her new book, “What Happened,” about her loss last year to Donald Trump. As Clinton has in several other, recent interviews promoting the book, she heaped much of the blame on then-FBI Director James Comey. Comey led the Justice Department investigation into Clinton’s use of private email servers as secretary of state, after Lynch stepped back
Union — A violent brawl over the weekend between two couples at a local Walmart was captured on video showing punches being exchanged as children watched and attempted to intervene. The video appears to show the two couples fighting Saturday near the jewelry section in the store on Springfield Road in Union. (Snip) The two men can be seen exchanging blows as the two women brawl at the same time. A third woman can be seen attempting to break up the fight between the two women with two young children also trying to intervene. Dozens of customers looked on at the ensuing
The star of HBO´s Insecure proudly spoke about her support for black nominees at the Emmys last night in an awards ceremony that had historic wins for minority stars. ´I´m rooting for everybody black,´ Issa Rae said from the red carpet. ´I am!´ The 32-year-old actress and writer also praised the number of African-Americans recognized for their talents in the TV industry. (Snip) During his speech for Best Lead Actor in a Comedy, he said: ´I want to thank Trump for making black people number one on the most oppressed list. He´s the reason I am probably up here.´
Liberal Brown University is set to offer segregated dinners for black and Muslim students on the tail of recent Antifa protests that have turned violent over the last few months. Purporting to offer “racial reconciliation,” Brown administrators took a $300,000 grant from the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) to “break down racial hierarchies and create a positive narrative about race in the community,” the College Fix reported. The money was supplied by donations by liberal organizations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, and Newman’s Own Foundation. There will be two separate segregated “dinner discussion groups,” one for African
Another day, another radical judge. As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, a U.S. district judge may actually refuse to rescind Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s conviction despite the fact that President Trump pardoned him. Arpaio is 85 years old. (Photo) The White House announced on August 25th that President Trump pardoned former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio. In a filing Thursday, U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton wrote she wasn’t convinced that she should drop Arpaio’s conviction, The Washington Post reported. Instead, she may only drop the criminal case and let the conviction stand–unless she can be convinced otherwise. U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton
