"Climate change is a global emergency," Sen. Bernie Sanders declared, and on Thursday, he unveiled a $16.3 TRILLION plan -- that's Trillion with a "T," to fight climate change. According to Sanders' campaign website, he aims to reach 100 percent renewable energy for electricity and transportation by no later than 2030 and complete decarbonization by 2050 at latest. He would do this by "expanding the existing federal Power Marketing Administrations to build new solar, wind, and geothermal energy sources." A federal takeover, in other words. The four existing federal Power Marketing Administrations (PMAs) include the Bonneville Power Administration; Western Area Power Administration;

This isn't a joke this kind of thinking is as great a danger as the world has ever faced. Our existence beyond subsistence farming is 100% dependent on relatively cheap energy. Take that energy away and how many of our 330 million people are capable of surviving? Are you ready to gamble that Bernie is a capable engineer? Only government, big totalitarian government has ever played with plans that will result in the deaths of tens of millions of innocent people. Horseman party of four, your table is ready. So much of left-wing thought is a kind of playing with fire by people who don't even know that fire is hot.--- George Orwell

“According to Sanders' campaign website, he aims to reach 100 percent renewable energy for electricity and transportation by no later than 2030....” Does Bernie the Red mean that all the trucks and cars we currently use and the ones we plan on purchasing will either be unable to buy fuel in 10 years or simply be banned? Same question for aviation fuel consuming airplanes, diesel powered freight & passenger trains as well as ships and the tugs that move barges. And, does Bernie have an alternative for replacing all of these needed transportation systems by 2030? The most frightening thing about Sanders is not him but the people who support him. See photo of the Chico, CA audience in article. Do they applaud his freedom destroying madness because they are unable to understand the consequences? Or, like Bernie, does their hatred for America, capitalism, success and most of all, individual freedom, overwhelm their common sense?

FTA:Sanders said his massive program would retrain oil rig workers and coal miners for green energy jobs. My guess is these people don't want to climb atop a windmill to replace its bearings, or dust-off solar panels. They are cut-out for heavy, physical labor that pays well.

Bernie Sanders "envisions" all manner of weird and wonderful things that have no basis in reality. It might be that his brain was permanently damaged in those drinking binges in Russia. He has been raging at the world for upwards of 50 years, and has never yet been coherent.

Rep.

Federal Election Commission (FEC) records reveal the Omar campaign began making travel reimbursements to Tim Mynett’s company, E.

A panel of "experts" assembled by New York Mayor Bill De Blasio has suggested to the city that the best possible way to desegregate its school system is simply to do away with the gifted programs for some the Big Apple's best and brightest students. The reasoning? These programs are mostly full of white and Asian students, and not many black or Hispanic kids. So, if they get rid of these classes, then the city naturally becomes desegrated. The New York Times has the story: Mr. de Blasio, who has staked his mayoralty on reducing inequality, has the power to adopt some or all of the proposals without input from the

The New York Post has the scoop: Dr. Beth Jordan Mynett says her cheating spouse, Tim Mynett, told her in April that he was having an affair with the Somali-born US representative and that he even made a “shocking declaration of love” for the Minnesota congresswoman before he ditched his wife, alleges the filing, submitted in DC Superior Court on Tuesday. The physician, 55, and her 38-year-old husband — who has worked for left-wing Democrats such as Omar and her Minnesota predecessor, Keith Ellison — have a 13-year-old son together.

"It's not pretty, and I'm not proud," he wrote, "but seeing what evangelical Christians are doing to this country and its people fills me with rage, and a desire to exact revenge."

The country's first Costco store is so popular that it had to shut down early on its first day because of too many shoppers. The retailer opened its first physical outlet in Shanghai on Tuesday morning, and it quickly got too crowded to stay open. "The store has been clogged up with crowds," Costco said in a text message alert to its members in China.

McCabe, a vocal Trump foe who opened a criminal investigation into the sitting president of the United States in May 2017 during his short stint as acting director, was fired by the FBI last year for lying to federal investigators. He played a key role in concocting the Trump-Russia collusion hoax; wrote a book filled with animus toward the president; and remains under a grand jury investigation.

A new Monmouth poll out yesterday showed Joe Biden in third place at 19 percent, a point behind Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, both at 20 percent. It is the first poll that has shown him as anything but a strong frontrunner. Now, the poll had a small sample size and large margin of error. It may well be an outlier. A CNN poll just last week had Biden doubling the numbers of both far-left senators. But it is nonetheless telling. Biden lost support among moderate and conservative Democrats, who switched their allegiance to the more overtly socialist septuagenarians. A likely explanation for this shift is that those moderates don’t see

Shaving company Gillette says it is “shifting the spotlight from social issues to local heroes,” after the company’s brief foray into the SJW-style demonization of masculinity drew a massive backlash from customers. The company landed itself in hot water last year when it ran a #MeToo-themed ad borrowing language from far-left anti-male feminists, depicting the abuse of women by men and encouraging male Gilette customers to “shave their toxic masculinity.” Other attempts to demonstrate the company’s “woke” credentials included an ad showing a dad teaching his transitioning female-to-male child how to shave.

The Democrats are clearly losing confidence that their declared presidential candidates can beat President Trump in 2020. They tout polls showing that any of their top four candidates would win the general election were it held now, but only the most naïve take such hypothetical matchups seriously. Moreover, they can see that their leading candidate is so fuddled that he frequently forgets his talking points and even where he is on a given day, while his competitors are so far left of the mainstream that Trump would trounce them. This is why so many on the left have turned their desperate eyes to Michelle Obama.

Obama's A.G., Eric Holder, challenged Americans to have an "honest" discussion about race. Obama and Holder are progressives who believe that America is unarguably racist.

Holder wanted to further instill a victim mindset in blacks and use reparations to seduce blacks to continue voting for Democrats. In response to Holder's challenge, I am launching an honest discussion about race.
