Posted By: M2, 9/5/2019 2:44:59 PM

While CNN marketed their seven hour climate town hall forum with many of the Democratic presidential candidates as "unprecedented," the network was in last place in total viewership between Fox News and MSNBC. The town hall started at 5:00 p.m. and went until midnight on Wednesday. Fox News was in first place during the seven hour time slot, averaging 2.5 million viewers and MSNBC averaging 1.7 million viewers. CNN only averaged 1.1 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. For the 25-54 age demographic, Fox News also came in first with 418,000 viewers. CNN was in second with 265,000 viewers and MSNBC in third with 246,000.

I truly hope this is the hill that the Demon-Rat candidates all chose to die on!!!! Of all the problems facing this country, a naturally occurring thing like the climate changing -- that has been happening since the creation of the world -- is pretty much the last thing on 98% of all Americans' minds. And all the Demon-Rats' plans to "fix" this naturally occurring phenomena will destroy our economy and hurt a lot of people. But it makes their idiotic brain-dead base feel good!!! All Demon-Rats and other lie-berals are pure evil!!!!! Period!!!!!

The polls are lying about how "voters" are thinking about the climate. They aren't. If it's hot they complain. If it's cold they complain. Outside of that: blah, blah, blah, blah....

This is what REALLY bugs me about the climate change crap: There are community groups all over this world who have unsafe and/or inadequate supplies of water. Either they don't have enough to drink OR what they have to drink is not clean. And THOSE are problems we could solve. We know how to dig wells, purify water, desalinate water, etc. We can educate people on how to keep their water intake safe. And yet we have the Al Gores and AOCs and the you-name-it Leftist/Communist who wants to play Henny Penny "The Sky Is Falling" -- almost always for a buck and for control over others. And all in the NAME of helping people, especially the "poor" and "disenfranchised." Freaking TICKS me off. If we want to help others, let's help them get clean water. But that, my friends, does not bring power to the elites. Problems bring power to them. Fixes take away their power. Screw the elites! POWER to the PEOPLE!

CNN will probably win some meaningless TV Emmy award for their bravery for airing such an important show to the world. It won't matter that 99.99999% of it was factual drivel and a climate fairy tail that could only have been written by Stephen King.

It was seven hours of free air time; an in-kind campaign contribution to the DNC and their Presidential candidates. Will the RNC get a 7-hour slot on CNN to refute the RATS and their genocidal madness and anti-Constitutional lunacy?

This is not an issue that very many people care about very much at all. The left imagines that there is this great reservoir of public support for all their "climate change" politics. They are wrong. It always ranks very low, often dead last, in polls of important issues.

But, but, the Dims are telling us that "climate change" is an "existential" threat to our lives, and must be dealt with immediately with the most dire response possible: end of use of "fossil fuels," banning automobiles, banning meat, etc. So, how can the low viewership cited be even possible????

Wave of GOP retirements threaten 2020 comeback 1 reply
Posted by M2 9/7/2019 7:31:28 AM Post Reply
A wave of House GOP retirements that accelerated during the August recess is creating fresh headaches for party leaders and suggesting Republicans see little chance of winning back the chamber in 2020. So far, 15 Republicans have announced this cycle they are retiring, resigning or running for other offices, including eight since the summer recess began in late July. A handful of those departing, like Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas), would have faced tough reelections in competitive districts. But the vast majority occupy safe, conservative seats — a sign that these lawmakers may be fatigued from the chaotic

Iran has begun using arrays of advanced centrifuges to enrich uranium in violation of its 2015 nuclear deal, a spokesman said Saturday, warning that Europe has little time left to offer new terms to save the accord. The comments by Behrouz Kamalvandi of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran signal a further cut into the one year experts estimate Tehran would need to have a enough material for building a nuclear weapon if it chose to pursue one. Iran maintains its program is peaceful. Iran already has breached the stockpile and enrichment level limits set by the deal, while stressing it could quickly revert back to the terms of the accord if

A panel of three judges dismissed a case brought by Britain's former Prime Minister John Major and businesswoman Gina Miller arguing that current Prime Minister Boris Johnson's attempt to suspend parliament through prorogation is an abuse of power, Bloomberg reported Friday. The case will be appealed to the U.K.'s highest court, handing Johnson a second legal victory and setting up a final battle over parliament and likely the fate of the U.K.'s exit from the European Union (EU) in the Supreme Court. Miller slammed the ruling in a press conference Friday, according to Bloomberg, and vowed to continue the battle before the nation's highest court. “Today we stand

"I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke," tweeted Donald Trump, himself a frequent consumer of diet soda, back in 2012. Besides being an amusing self-own, Trump's comment helps explain the trouble with most research on diet drinks—including a new study that's been making the media rounds this week. "It doesn't matter if it's sugary or diet: New study links all soda to an early death," reported The Washington Post on September 4. It was one of many similar headlines. The implication of all of them was clear: Zero-calorie cola is a big fat lie, and if you don't ditch it now you're staring down a premature grave.

The questioner, identified by CNN as a teacher named Martha Readyoff, said that she realized linking population control to climate was a topic "poisonous for politicians, but it's crucial to face."

The Massachusetts Democrat added the technology raises “serious privacy and civil liberties concern” that “could easily create a surveillance network that places dangerous burdens on people of color” in areas where Ring has partnered with police officials.

At CNN’s “Climate Crisis” town hall, Sen.

At Wednesday’s town hall, Democrats tried to one-up each other with various grandiose plans to decarbonize the U.S. economy. But it was Warren’s almost offhand remarks about domestic energy production that caught our attention. “I think the way we get there,” she said, is to force electric utilities to stop using fossil fuels to generate electricity. “We just say, sorry, guys but by 2035, you’re done.

Is former Vice President Joe Biden's "electability" argument weakening? From the beginning of his 2020 campaign, Biden has banked his nomination chances not on arguing that he's the best candidate, either in terms of policy or enthusiasm, but that he is the only one "safe" enough to run against Donald Trump in the general election. Coasting on his association with the wildly popular Barack Obama, Biden's strategy has been to appeal to skittish Democratic voters who might not themselves have much personal zeal for the former veep, but who believe he won't scare off those fragile working-class white voters in the Midwest who have become such a focus of media attention
