A Joe Biden presidency would
be a climate catastrophe

Original Article

What would a Joe Biden presidency look like? The answer to that question is coming into focus, and it can be summed up in one word: tired. Biden is trudging through the campaign, constantly screwing up and lying about his record, winning almost entirely thanks to the Pundit Brain-induced learned helplessness that has been carefully instilled into the Democratic base over the years. Biden may yet win the primary, of course, and sheer backlash to President Trump could easily boost him into the White House. But it is simply beyond question that he is one of the worst candidates in

Comments:

Global warming was just supposed to be a vote gathering scheme for the Dems, and a way to handcuff capitalism. Problem is, the lefties really believe it, and want radical action that would be a major vote loser for Biden.

Of course it would. If we surrender our economy to revert back to the simple 19th century levels of energy consumption guess what? We surrender military power to 21st century polluters and hand them control of the planet. What's China's track record? You really want to hand them the keys? Morons.

It would be a total catastrophe, not just the climate, if Biden was ever elected.

Hasbro wants to take the conversation over the gender pay gap out of the board room and into the living room with its new Ms. Monopoly game, launching this month. Dubbed “the first game where women make more than men,” the updated version of the classic board-game introduces new women-centric elements, starting with its titular character. Ms. Monopoly is the niece of the elder Mr. Monopoly and a “self-made investment guru,” according to the product listing on Walmart.com. In the game, women get a head start: Female players receive $1,900 in Monopoly money at the beginning of the game, compared

Leaders in the financial industry are really worried about the possibility of Sen. Elizabeth Warren becoming president, CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Tuesday. “When you get off the desk and talk to executives, they’re more fearful of her winning,” Cramer said on “Squawk on the Street.” Cramer said he’s hearing a “she’s got to be stopped” mantra bubbling up among executives on Wall Street and elsewhere. Warren, a champion of the left wing for her bank-bashing and wealth-taxing proposals, has been doing better at the polls in the crowded field of candidates vying for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

A 16-year-old high school student was fatally shot and others were injured during another violent weekend in South Bend, Ind., continuing an upward trend of violent crime during the tenure of Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who is campaigning for the Democratic nomination for president. Between Friday evening at 5 p.m. and Sunday night, approximately 130 gunshots were either reported or detected in South Bend, according to the South Bend Tribune. Around 9:30 p.m. on Friday night, 16-year-old Curtis Frazier Jr., who was a student at Riley High School, was killed in the 1800 block of Sampson Street. Makyi Toliver was

Former Vice President Joe Biden “misspoke” when he said he “immediately” opposed the Iraq war after the invasion began, according to a senior adviser for the Biden campaign. In an interview with NPR in Iowa last Tuesday, Biden stated his immediate opposition to invading Iraq. "[Bush] looked me in the eye in the Oval Office. He said he needed the vote to be able to get inspectors into Iraq to determine whether or not Saddam Hussein was engaged in dealing with a nuclear program," Biden said on The NPR Politics Podcast, Sept. 3. "He got them in and before you

MANCHESTER, N.H. — When Joe Biden took the stage in New Hampshire, he was greeted with the respect that comes with being a former vice president. Some of his closest rivals were greeted more like rock stars. The scene at New Hampshire's Democratic convention on Saturday highlighted one of the riddles of Biden's candidacy: He maintains a lead in nearly every poll, but his campaign events often lack the look and feel of a front-runner. His crowds are warm, but rarely high-energy. His organization is solid, but doesn't always show up in force at key events that help shape the perceptions

LOS ANGELES — A day of diving off Santa Cruz Island ended like countless others aboard the Conception, with dozens of divers asleep in tightly arranged bunks that all but filled the belly of the 75-foot boat. As always, there were two ways out in case of emergency — up a curved stairway at the front of the cabin, or through an escape hatch in the ceiling over bunks at the rear. Before dawn on Labor Day, when flames devoured the 38-year-old wooden-hulled vessel, no one below deck made it out of either exit. The only survivors were five crew members who

HARARE, Zimbabwe — Robert Mugabe took a country shining with the promise of independence and left it economically shattered and in the grip of repression — and yet Zimbabwe continued to crumble so badly after his downfall that some of its people began openly missing his nearly four-decade rule. The newly christened Zimbabwe was the pride of southern Africa at its independence in 1980, the breadbasket of the region and the latest symbol of victory in the continent's long fight against colonialism. Mugabe was a liberation leader who reassured some by making gestures of reconciliation toward the country's white residents. It didn't

Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberley Strassel warned on Saturday that 2020 Democratic candidates' climate proposals could cause the loss of millions of jobs. "When you talk about banning fracking. When you talk about a carbon-free economy by 2030 or 2050, you are saying 'we are going to kill every coal job in the country, every oil and gas job, all of the shipping jobs that they do -- we're talking about millions of positions," Strassel said during the "The Journal Editorial Report."

The surprise attack on Hawaii came on a quiet Sunday morning, and it fell to the president of the United States to rally a confused and stricken nation one day later in a momentous address to Congress: “Yesterday, Dec. 7, 1941—a date which will live as totally f*cked up—the United States of America was suddenly and deliberately attacked by the naval and air forces of Japan.” That’s the power of language at work. And who can forget the image of an American commander in chief in Berlin on the front lines of the Cold War: “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this

Presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke says it is a fundamental “right” for individuals to live near their place of employment and that wealthy Americans should “be forced” to live among the poor. “Living close to work shouldn’t be a luxury for the rich.

The Democrat’s tweet also included a video further explaining his position. “Here’s the tough thing to talk about, though we must.

A chick adopted by a pair of lesbian penguins will be raised gender-neutral by its keepers. The infant will be raised neither male nor female at London's Sea Life centre, where the family are kept. It's the first time the aquarium has had a non-binary animal, which comes four months after same-sex gentoo parents, Rocky and Marama, acquired the offspring. If eventually the penguin gets named, it will be given a gender-neutral name such as Kelly, Alex or Charlie, according to staff at Sea Life London.
