The face of the global warming scare was once that of Al Gore. Now that face belongs to a 16-year-old girl who’s being treated as a prophetess. It’s hard to conceive of a world gone more mad. Greta Thunberg has been thrust into the spotlight, tagged as the child who will lead us away from our inevitable climate disaster — if only we let her. Adults hang on her words, regard her as an omniscient oracle, insist that we are in the presence of our savior. Thunberg’s “voice lets us know we’re in disavowal, and that we’d better wake up.

" For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." Seems appropriate, no?

This 16 year “prophetess” is just an update on another 15 year old. From Wikipedia: In April 1856, 15-year old Nongqawuse and her friend Nombanda who was between the ages of 8-10 went to scare birds from her uncle's crops in the fields by the sea at the Gxara River mouth in the present day Wild Coast region of South Africa. When she returned, Nongqawuse told her uncle and guardian Mhlakaza, a Xhosa spiritualist, that she had met the spirits of two of her ancestors.[3] She claimed that the spirits had told her that the Xhosa people should destroy their crops and kill their cattle, the source of their wealth as well as food. Nongqawuse claimed that the ancestors who had appeared to them said. 1) the dead would arise; 2) all living cattle would have to be slaughtered, having been reared by contaminated hands; 3) cultivation would cease; 4) new grain would have to be dug; 5) new houses would have to be built; 6) new cattle enclosures would have to be erected; 7) new milk sacks would have to be made; 8) doors would have to be weaved with buka roots and lastly; 9) that people abandon witchcraft, incest and adultery.[3] In return the spirits would sweep the British settlers into the sea.[4] The Xhosa people would be able to replenish the granaries, and fill the kraals with more beautiful and healthier cattle.” The tribe slaughtered some 400,000 cattle and destroyed their grain by following her teenage nonsense. As a result, some 80,000 tribe members died of starvation and disease. The “stingy people”, or those who didn’t follow this nonsense, were blamed for not allowing her mad vision to come true. Today, we’re called deniers.

Very sad. This girl is obsessed with a scary tale told to her by her parents and reinforced by her schooling. She is no more knowledgeable than the young women at the Salem witch trials that accused people of being witches and were believed by a gullible people. She will be cursed with a life believing she and the planet are doomed by forces that do not exist, like believing you are being haunted by ghosts. The adults who push her to the forefront when she possesses no superior claim on truth are using her as a sympathetic and, being a child, protected status to foist their Alarmist idiocy on the world. This child is being USED and that is a form of abuse. Real science is not validated by children's belief. It is strengthened by hard investigation and rigorous testing and open discussion and results that can be fully examined and repeated by others. What investigative work has this child done? None. She is parroting the beliefs of other authoritative people in her life. That doesn't make her beliefs any more true.

So this girl is from Sweden? How do you heat your home during all those cold months? If it is electricity, what fuel does the power plant use. (If nuclear then OK) If not electricity then it must be a fossil fuel. If you cease using fossil fuels, how will you keep yours home warm in the Winter? Solar? It tends to be cloudy and the days are shorter. Wind? Only when its windy. Whats left? Wood! That's it, cut all your trees down and burn them for heat. Any other options??

Fact: The European Union is failing and all member countries are degenerating due to their own stupidity. Life in Europe is worse now than it was twenty years ago. Fact: The United States is the only country in the world with enough wealth to save Europe from complete implosion. Fact: Although Europeans collectively outnumber the US population they can not take from us through the use of force what they need to recover (our money) because our technology will defeat them and our armed citizenry will complete the job. Fact: A United States stripped of all weapons and technology would be an easy target so they must remove both, thus the constant efforts to disarm and disable us. And there you have the reasons why they are working so feverishly to disarm us and remove our technology. The big mystery is why half of the US population is attempting to help them. Barack Obama spent eight years attempting this very thing. Giving in to GW demands is suicide for America. Logical argument will not work but if it takes a 16-year-old Oracle Brat to defeat us, they will use her and idiots like AOC and her puppet master, Chakrabarti. Desperation has a distinct odor.

Funny thing is that only the Left believes this, hard to find Conservatives who do. You do have to believe in a dark destructive force to make any sense out of normally intelligent people who believe GW hook, line and sinker. I have tried to bring up the facts-as in the earth has not really warmed up, but it just bounces off their blocked heads. Truth, facts, gets you nowhere. They want to believe, it's the new religion that explains all the bad Mother-Nature, otherwise normal, weather changes.

This reminds me of the accounts of the "Children's Crusade" of the 13th century. A charismatic child claims to have been directed by God to lead children to the Holy-lands to peacefully convert the Muslims to Christianity. Some 30,000 follow him to Italy. Many parish along the way the rest end up being sold into slavery. I wonder if she is the product of the propaganda of his holiness Al Gore who flew all over the place in a private jet to promote a totalitarian agenda to eliminate carbon emissions. If he had succeeded, the tax burden would have made us slaves to the government. The fact that people take her seriously is frightening.

Who Diss new 'prophet' the media is having an orgasm over? Never heard of her. -------------------------------- Statement made in 2010 by United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) official Ottmar Edenhofer: "But one must say clearly that we redistribute de facto the world's wealth by climate policy. Obviously, the owners of coal and oil will not be enthusiastic about this. One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy." ------------------------- July 2019: Finnish scientists spearheaded the research, releasing a paper entitled, “No Experimental Evidence for the Significant Anthropogenic Climate Change.” The paper explains that IPCC analysis of global temperatures suffers from a glaring error — namely, failure to account for “influences of low cloud cover” and how it impacts global temperatures. Natural variations in low cloud cover, which are strongly influenced by cosmic radiation’s ability to penetrate Earth’s atmosphere due to variations in the strength of our planet’s magnetosphere, account for nearly all changes in global temperature, the researchers explain.

Global Warming fad will last a lifetime for the poor fools who know no better, Sort of like St Vitus's Dance in medieval Europe. Many died and no one knew why. ************************ Affecting thousands of people across several centuries, dancing mania was not an isolated event, and was well documented in contemporary reports. It was nevertheless poorly understood, and remedies were based on guesswork. Often musicians accompanied dancers, due to a belief that music would treat the mania, but this tactic sometimes backfired by encouraging more to join in. There is no consensus among modern-day scholars as to the cause of dancing mania.[1]

'faves' in Jeffrey Epstein's little black book?

Posted by PageTurner 7/25/2019 10:16:00 AM Post Reply
Jeffrey Epstein, the man dubbed the "Palm Beach Pervert," by Forbes in 2011, is now in jail awaiting trial for running a child-sex racket. Up until now, he's always dodged trouble, but now he's under intense scrutiny by both the press and prosecutors. The idea, of course, was to pin Epstein to Trump, now that the Russia collusion narrative has collapsed. But then there was that intriguing statement by Nancy Pelosi's daughter, that a lot of Democrat "faves" might be going down. Remember this from the Washington Examiner?

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

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.

Many questioned the timing of her tweet considering it came as Mueller was concluding his testimony in front of the House Judiciary Committee. He was testifying about the two-year long investigation that concluded that no member of the Trump campaign knowingly conspired with Russia to win the election.

Robert Mueller is a very impressive man. Until he opens his mouth. Or, perhaps, he is just a calcified, barnacle-crusted swamp creature long past his prime.

A witness who was already recording the teens walking then immediately started laughing as the other girls – as many as five at one point — joined the unprovoked attack. “They beating her,” one teen said while chuckling.

Post-judgment interest in Ohio is 5%, which if my math is correct, on $32 million equals $1.6 million a year just in interest, or $4,384 per day. So that $32 million is going to keep growing as the inevitable appeal winds its way through the courts. Interest aside, Oberlin College doesn’t want Gibson’s Bakery to start collecting the judgment by seizing bank accounts, college equipment, and anything else they can get their hands on.
