In its quest to make America Venezuela, the left is coming for your toilet paper. Kimberley Strassel spotted this beaut on Twitter: Apparently toilet paper is the new plastic straw of the green lobby, and they're out to put a stop to it. Kid you not, here is what the National Resources Defense Council is shilling as its new narrative: You may not realize it, but the toilet paper in your bathroom likely comes from some of the most important—and threatened—forests in the world.

Well, you could do what Ilhan Omar does (in the time-honored practice of her people)...but then you couldn't shake left-handed with anyone.

The quoted NRDC article even includes the mandatory “we’re running out of time” phrase that is required to be included in all climate change propaganda. Personally, I’d rather run out of time than run out of toilet paper at the wrong time!

Regressive and so third world. When I lived in Ghana, they sold TP on the street. By the role! It was that cheap, rough TP, too. Cost a mini-fortune. Leftists want to have all the good TP for themselves, and we have to live with the crap paper. Oh, and paper straws suck. There's a reason we went from paper straws to plastic, and it's called innovation and progress; making life better. Leftists want us to suffer, so they can live high on the hog ruling and reigning over us. We already hate them, so I'm not sure how they think they'll ever get there and be able to enjoy all that power and wealth. Wait until their useful idiots get woke, too! Conservatives can sit back and watch as the useful idiots tear up the leftists new we-rule world, just like they trained them to tear up ours.

The left has an advantage here because they have been conditioning their backsides by wiping with parchment for years, the constitution.

Ya know....... half of Georgia....literally thousands of square MILES of the state are devoted to growing pine trees for wood, paper and chemicals, i.e turpentine. Pine trees are a cash crop. We dont cut down old growth or hardwoods for TP. This is example # 896378531 of why liberals and envirowhackos are stupid. As for hardwood and old growth.... when those trees come down they are pealed into very thin strips called veneer. Veneers are then glued to pine to make your "not" oak furniture look like oak. Houses and furniture is mostly constructed from cash crop pine.

Anybody who has ever been in the military may be familiar with government issue toilet paper we had to use. Each barracks room - our Army rooms housed three soldiers each — was issued one roll per week. The contract for the TP was issued to the low bidder, so you can imagine the quality. If you looked close enough you could see the wood fibers in the paper, almost like pressed plywood. That’s what we can look forward to in our upcoming Socialist Utopia.

There is no group of people on earth that is more ignorant, stupid, dumb and ridiculous than the green movement. Do they not realize how many people have tree farms that grow trees specifically for the paper products industry? They don't get their paper from the old growth forests much anymore. They get their supplies from tree farmers. Trees are RENEWABLE. They are not something that will ever run out. These people are responsible for the plastic bag industry starting up back in the day. Get them to admit to that? Not a chance.

It doesn't get worse for a leftist when even CNN is warning that your 'economic solution' to the economic problems you've laid out are going to destroy the economy. Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren came out with a big, serious-looking economic plan intoning about a coming economic crash, her own supposed ability to forecast such things, and then calling for free college, a soaring minimum wage, more Dodd-Frank regulations on big bad banks, and lots of free stuff.

For all of Donald Trump’s moral flaws – the women, the profanities, the routine personal insults, the continual unpresidential conduct – he has raised the moral bar in one all-important area: This president has kept a great many of his promises (even if that wall is nowhere near to being built). And this outsized fact will be a huge advantage next year against whichever conventional politician wins the Democratic nomination. CNN’s decision not to allow any “raise your hand” questions in the Democrat candidates’ next round of debates, which the cable news channel will telecast on July 30 and 31 from Detroit, is first and foremost an example

So guess what just went out the window when Venezuelan jet interfered in an unsafe manner with U.S. fighters over the Caribbean Friday? Try the canard that Russia really wants President Trump to win the election. That's been the narrative since the end of 2016 - and has continued well into this year. Here is what is being tweeted now from the U.S. Southern Command: O.K., the first thought that came to mind is perhaps some surprise that Venezuela even has gas for jets at all, or working jets, given the country's lack of spare parts.

Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, for decades an agitator for a government-forced minimum/living wage, announced over the weekend that his campaign’s wage floor will be increased to $15 an hour. To make it work, workers’ hours will be cut. Did he just take the minimum wage issue off the table for Democrats? In 1986, known then as the “socialist mayor of Burlington,” Vermont, Sanders campaigned on raising the state’s minimum wage while running for governor. During one of his runs for the U.S. Senate, where he is serving his third term,

Most of the Jewish community has feverishly and piously supported last week’s Democrat-sponsored Resolution condemning President Trump’s remarks against Ilhan Omar. Omar, of course, is a notorious, unrepentant anti-Semite and daily demonizer of Israel. But she has become, for many Jews, a heroine, a civil rights star, a noble cause. Enjoying such support, Omar rewarded the Jewish community by immediately announcing, after the Resolution’s passage, a piece of legislation demanding that Congress vote in favor of BDS against Israel and her Jewish inhabitants.

Venezuela's bishops put out a fiery statement blasting the brutal, illegitimate Maduro dictatorship, calling for its extinction. Oppenheimer then asks: So what did the pope say after the bishops’ statement? Instead of echoing their demand that Maduro leave office,

It is no coincidence that the streets of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle are full of homeless people, shooting up drugs and discarding their needles on the sidewalks, defecating and urinating wherever they happen to be standing, sitting, or squatting, and accosting passers-by demanding money. The left-wing politicians and their voters tolerate and subsidize this behavior, so they attract people who want to live this way in growing numbers. As the old saying puts it, there’s an easy way and a hard way to solve this problem. And a problem it is, because of the settled science

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday warned that an economic crash was coming and said she had a plan to stop it. Pointing to high debt and a sagging manufacturing sector, Ms. Warren said the economy teeters on the edge of disaster. “The country’s economic foundation is fragile. A single shock could bring it all down. And the Trump administration’s reckless behavior is increasing the odds of just such a shock,” the Massachusetts Democrat wrote in an op-ed in Medium. The alarm took a swipe at the strong economy that is President Trump’s chief argument for reelection. It also highlighted Ms. Warren’s agenda of wealth redistribution.

The proposal offers a guaranteed income – up to $6,000 per year – to families and individuals under certain financial thresholds via a “refundable tax credit that can be paid monthly.”
