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.)
Minneapolis police chief Janee Harteau has resigned at the request of the city’s mayor, who said she and the community had lost confidence in her following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed Australian woman. The death of Sydney native Justine Damond, 40, from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen fired through the open window of a police patrol car, has outraged her family members and the Australian public. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has called it “shocking” and “inexplicable”.
In what some lawmakers are calling a "morally repugnant" incident and a "humanitarian nightmare," a single mother of four who has been living in the United States for 24 years is now seeking refuge in a New Haven, Connecticut church in an attempt to avoid deportation. Nury Chavarria, a Guatemala native, and her four children must wait as her legal team attempts to secure some kind of relief for her. Connecticut Governor Dannel Malloy and Senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, all Democrats, have rallied around her in support, along with community activists and volunteers.
Vladimir Putin has said he could stay on as President of Russia for at least another six years. His term in office ends with the presidential election in March 2018 but he is widely expected to seek re-election and win another six-year term. Mr Putin has been President of Russia since 2000, apart from a stint as Prime Minister between 2008 and 2012. He was speaking during a three-hour question and answer session with Russian children at a school in the Black Sea city of Sochi, in which he answered a series of light-hearted questions. Responding to a question about his plans for when he leaves office, he smiled and said:
John Heard, the actor best known for his role as the dad in the original “Home Alone” movies, died on Friday, July 21. He was 72. According to TMZ, he was found in a hotel in Palo Alto, California by the maid service and was pronounced dead at the scene after police were called. (Tweet) The Santa Clara County medical examiner´s office confirmed his death. “I can confirm that our officers responded with the fire department to a hotel in our city yesterday on a report of a person in need of medical aid,” a spokesperson from the Palo Alto Police Department told People. “The person was determined to be deceased.
Congress has reached a final deal on new Russia sanctions legislation, leaders announced Saturday, clearing the path for final approval of legislation that would codify penalties imposed by the Obama administration and would require President Trump to seek approval from Capitol Hill should he want to lift the sanctions. (Snip) All sides said they expect massive bipartisan support in the coming days for the legislation, giving Congress a solid victory in a year otherwise devoid of major accomplishments. This one, however, strikes at Mr. Trump, which helps explain why Democrats are eager to sign on.
Army Sgt. 1st Class Ikaika Kang was arrested by an FBI SWAT team on July 8. Kang was ordered held without bail. Kang will be arraigned in federal court on Monday. Kang’s court-appointed attorney, Birney Bervar, told The Associated Friday that his client, a decorated American soldier for 10 years, will plead not guilty on Monday when a federal judge will set a trial date. Bervar said he is working on getting Kang a mental health evaluation and that his client may suffer from service-related mental health issues. Kang is charged with four counts of attempting to provide material support to the Islamic State group based on events that
President Donald Trump on Saturday tweeted about several hot-button issues surrounding his administration, including his son Donald Trump Jr., Russia collusion allegations and Obamacare. He blamed an "intelligence leak" for a damaging report on A.G. Jeff Sessions from the Washington Post. The report suggested Sessions discussed Trump campaign-related matters with a Russian ambassador, according to a former U.S. official. Trump called for the illegal leaks to stop. (Tweet) Trump also asserted his "complete power to pardon" after the Washington Post reported that Trump’s lawyers are looking into the president’s ability to
Tallahassee - When O.J. Simpson was granted early parole Thursday after nearly nine years in prison, Silver Airways decided it was time for a "Bust Out the OJ" deal. The airline company, which flies out of Tallahassee, is offering travelers a chance "to slash" 20 percent off one-way trips through Monday. The post promoting the deal claims, "with deals so hot, you’ll need to wear gloves to nab them" - a reference to Simpson´s murder trial in the stabbing deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Simpson was acquitted of
Iran´s Revolutionary Guards have detained a Saudi Arabian fishing boat and arrested its crew, an Iranian state news agency reported on Saturday, at a time of increased diplomatic tension between the two regional powers. Five Indian nationals on the vessel were detained on Friday after they crossed into Iranian territorial waters in the Gulf, Ardeshir Yarahmadi, a spokesman for the fisheries department of Bushehr province, was quoted as saying by the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA). Yarahmadi said it was the second time in the past month that a Saudi boat and its crew had been detained. Relations between Iran and
The co-founder of the Washington-based firm that commissioned the explosive and largely unsubstantiated anti-Trump campaign research dossier will reject a Senate subpoena to testify before Congress next week and invoke his Fifth Amendment rights, according to the heads of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Glenn Simpson, the former Wall Street Journal reporter who helped start political intelligence firm Fusion GPS, has been a key figure in the Russian election meddling saga ever since the dossier, which alleged a years-long Kremlin conspiracy to elect Donald Trump and included colorful sex stories, was leaked to the press after the
Liberals may simply try to wish away the crime — but a 17-year-old girl’s brush with death, and subsequent use of a gun, shows without a doubt that the Second Amendment saves. The story of Kimber Woods, who fired into the ground and scared away a home intruder, is one for the political books. Strangely, liberals are pretty silent on it, though. (Snip) When the burglar did indeed enter her home, Woods pulled out the firearm and pointing it right at his face, demanding he leave. For extra emphasis, she ran outside and fired a shot into the ground. The burglar fled. Mission accomplished. Nobody was even physically harmed.
Cairo - A Cairo criminal court on Saturday sentenced to death 28 people over the 2015 killing of Egypt´s top prosecutor after the death penalty was approved by the country´s top religious authority, and it also jailed 15 others for 25 years each. Public prosecutor Hisham Barakat was killed in a car bomb attack on his convoy in the capital, an operation for which Egypt blamed the Muslim Brotherhood and Gaza-based Hamas militants. Both groups have denied having a role. The court had in June recommended passing the death penalty to Egypt´s top religious leader, the Grand Mufti, who can approve or reject the
Today the White House touted the accomplishments of the administration in the first six months, and the list included: “Attorney General Jeff Sessions implemented new charging guidelines to end catch-and-release policies.” Of course, the president’s not so focused on that part of Sessions’ record lately. As noted in the Jolt, Trump declared in an interview with the New York Times, “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else.” Tensions between a president and attorney general aren’t new
The threat of an expanding special counsel investigation into President Trump’s finances has rattled his conservative base with fears that the New York billionaire could be brought down by shady business deals — not collusion with Russia. Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller has widened the scope of the Russia investigation to include Mr. Trump’s business deals, according to a Bloomberg News report. The president had warned that such a move would cross a line. “Those transactions are in my view well beyond the mandate of the special counsel, are unrelated to the election of 2016 or any alleged collusion between the Trump
WASHINGTON – Back with a sequel to An Inconvenient Truth, former Vice President Al Gore reflected on his 2006 prediction that “the world would reach a point of no return within 10 years” if “drastic measures” were not taken to combat climate change. Gore was asked why he made that prediction in the first film and if he has another prediction to make about climate change now 11 years later. “First of all, we’ve seen a lot of progress since the first movie came out. We have the Paris agreement now. The cost of renewable energy has come down so quickly
Sarah Huckabee Sanders was promoted to White House press secretary Friday, and it didn’t take long for liberals to attack her appearance and politics. While Sanders is just the third woman to serve as press secretary — following Dee Dee Myers and Dana Perino — some questioned the idea that Sanders’ ascension is a win for feminism. Mediaite published an article shortly after the promotion announcement that accused Sanders of “hurting women.”
Special Counsel Robert Mueller has announced 15 attorneys who will look into Trump-Russia collusion in the 2016 election. (Photos) There is no evidence of collusion and even if collusion occurred it would not be a crime — just like the fact that Hillary Clinton colluded with the Ukraine was not a crime. But the Russian witch hunt will never end until heads roll. Here is a look at the 15 attorneys who will investigate Trump. NPR recently listed 13 of the attorneys Mueller has hired: Rush Atkinson, an attorney on detail from the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section at the Department
Authorities in Florida say that a group of teenagers recorded the drowning of a disabled man last week — and did nothing to help as they made fun of his struggles. Jamel Dunn, 32, of Cocoa, drowned in a retention pond July 9. His body was recovered July 14, two days after his fiancee reported him missing. Late last week, a friend of Dunn´s family came across the video on social media and forwarded it to authorities in Brevard County. In the video, which was published by the Florida Today newspaper Thursday, the teens can be heard laughing at Dunn
While there are doubtless celebrations in Moscow, the news that Sen. John McCain has irreversible brain cancer hit me harder than any such news since I sat in a seventh-grade classroom and our science teacher ran down the hall shouting, “The president’s been shot.” That president, JFK, was a war hero, too, but not one of McCain’s stature. Shot down over North Vietnam, crippled by wounds and tortured, McCain refused early release and remained in his Hanoi prison, suffering for years beside his comrades. Returning home at last, on crutches, he dedicated himself to serving the people of Arizona and the
The last Republican to run against Sen. John McCain (R., Ariz.) called on him to step down "as quickly as possible" following his Wednesday cancer diagnosis. Dr. Kelli Ward is running against Sen. Jeff Flake (R., Ariz.) in the 2018 Republican primary and made her comments about McCain on an Indiana talk radio show Thursday, CNN reports. A surgeon and former state senator, Ward argued that advancing the federal government´s business and President Donald Trump´s agenda gave McCain reason to step aside. "I hope that Senator McCain is going to look long and hard at this, that his family and
Minneapolis police chief Janee Harteau resigned on Friday at the request of the city´s mayor, who said that she and the community had lost confidence in Harteau following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed Australian woman. The death of Sydney native Justine Damond, 40, from a single gunshot wound to the abdomen fired through the open window of a police patrol car, has outraged her family members and the Australian public. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has called it "shocking" and "inexplicable." Mayor Betsy Hodges said in a written statement that she and Harteau agreed on Friday that Harteau would step
Deep State leaked top secret information on Friday to The Washington Post in their continued attempt to destroy the Trump administration. The latest leaks prove the Obama administration was spying on the Trump campaign. President Trump tweeted on Barack Obama’s illegal spying on his political opponents in 2016. POTUS Trump tweeted this in March. (Tweet) Since that time we now know that the FBI was investigating the Trump Tower servers during the election. We also know Susan Rice lied at first but then admitted when she got caught that she was unmasking her political opponents phone calls. Rice blamed racism after
The New York Times published a diatribe from a black reporter Wednesday, in which he slammed “white women” for not getting out of his way as he walks through Manhattan. In the article, called “Was That Racist?” the Times published a series of short stories supposedly describing the complexities of figuring out if someone has been racist to you. “Everyday life brings awkward moments for everyone, but some of our daily stories are infused with added tension, especially if one or more of those involved perceive that race is a determining factor,” the intro to the article says. But one
The lead voice actor for The Emoji Movie insisted in an interview Thursday that the movie is a very, very important way of fighting President Donald Trump´s administration, rather than just a film about talking faces. Sitting down with HuffPost, comedic actor T.J. Miller trashed his former co-workers on HBO´s "Silicon Valley," saying they did not do enough to stop Trump. "Right before the election … I asked, ‘How much money did you donate, you Hollywood elites? How much did you donate to Hillary Clinton´s campaign?´" he recounted. "And everybody in the cast said nothing. They hadn´t given a dollar."
