Democrat lawmakers have invited 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg to testify before a joint House hearing on Wednesday on the “global climate crisis.” Thunberg, who has won plaudits around the world for her “school strike for climate” campaign, is due to appear together with three young Americans before a joint hearing of the new House Select Committee on the Climate Crisis and a House Foreign Affairs subcommittee dealing with energy and environmental issues. Their respective chairmen, Reps. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.) and Bill Keating (D-Mass.), have entitled their hearing, “Voices Leading the Next Generation on the Global Climate Crisis.”

I just named my new dog from the animal shelter Greta because she is young and has a lot to learn. She also wants to do things her way. I think the dog would be more honest in front of a joint session of congress.

Kathy Castor, Democrat congresswoman from across the bay, is so stupid it almost hurts. It makes perfect sense that she'd 'd pay close attention to this ignorant youth who knows nothing about the climate, and is just spouting the usual watermelon line. Silly woman, silly girl.

According to the liberals, an 8-year old knows more about world affairs, not to mention auto insurance, than any adult! Now, climate issues? That's where they are really, really light years ahead of any adult-especially conservatives! They should be awarded PHDs at age 12, without having to go to college! They don't need no stinkin' education, just conditioning!

#12 - Don't forget when Sissy Spacek and Jane Fonda testified before Congress on the plight of farmers in 1985. It boggles the mind that someone would give credence to a teenager over scientists who have spent decades studying the climate. I think Michael Mann is dead wrong about global warming, but at least he's got advanced degrees in physics, mathematics, geophysics, and geology. I'd listen to him before I'd listen to a teenaged parrot reveling in her 15 minutes of fame. Not that I'd listen to him either, given his unwillingness to let anyone look at his data, but that's a different issue......

Just because Greta Thunberg is a true believer of the Man-Made Global Warming propaganda doesn't make her a climate expert. It only shows she is a gullible zealot. The fact that she has won plaudits around the world for her “school strike for climate” campaign shows there are other gullible zealots out there.

Public school trained kids finishing high school for the most part don’t know how to sign their own name in cursive, their multiplication tables, or how to read, even at the Dick and Jane level. But they do know that the world is doomed by ten years from next week. Fortunately, there are self taught exceptions.

The White House plans to send House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) a letter as soon as Friday daring her to hold an impeachment vote and informing her that President Trump will not comply with any requests from the impeachment probe unless a formal vote is held, according to an Axios report confirmed by Fox News. Pelosi announced last week that the House would launch a formal impeachment inquiry, but so far has not held a vote. House Democrats’ handling of the probe prompted a letter from House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) on Thursday, in which McCarthy challenged Pelosi to come up with “transparent and equitable

Fox News host Tucker Carlson criticized the CIA and Democratic California Rep. Adam Schiff on Thursday, specifically mocking the intelligence agency for a number of historic failures. The Daily Caller co-founder kicked off his show Thursday night with a monologue pointing out how the agency couldn’t predict the Korean War, or the Cuban Missile Crisis. He also said the CIA falsely predicted that Iraq under Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction. “In fact, their biggest success in the past 50 years may have been creating the Taliban,” Carlson said. “If John Brennan had been working for a nonprofit business, there would have been a shareholder

Republicans and President Trump, eager to discredit the impeachment inquiry launched by House Democrats, may have found their weapon in Adam Schiff. Schiff, a California Democrat who is chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, was tasked last month by Speaker Nancy Pelosi with leading the impeachment inquiry into the president's efforts to get foreign governments to investigate allegations against 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden. But Schiff, 59, could be helping the GOP weaken the case for impeachment by making critical missteps that Republicans and Trump believe undermine the Democrats' case against the president. Reports surfaced last week that members of Schiff's committee staff

Prominent “Never Trump” Republicans insist they would never back rising Democratic contender Elizabeth Warren, describing an election that pits the liberal Massachusetts senator against a president they despise as a choice between two unacceptable options. A few Republicans opposed to Trump are prepared to support Warren if she emerges as the only viable challenger, affirming a commitment to topple the president at all costs. But for many well-known Republicans and unaligned political operatives inside the community of conservative Trump opponents, there are limits. Joe Biden, the former vice president, is a traditional labor Democrat they can stomach, and even promote for. Warren is another matter,
'Possible political bias' of whistleblower

The mention of “possible political bias” in the intelligence community inspector general report was included because the whistleblower is a registered Democrat. The fact that the whistleblower is registered as such did not undermine the credibility of his complaint, according to Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson. “Further although the ICIG's preliminary reviewed identified some indicia of bias of an arguable political bias on the part of the complainant in favor of a rival political candidate, such evidence did not change my determination that the complaint relating to the urgent concern ‘appears credible’ particularly given the other information the ICIG obtained during its preliminary review,” Atkinson wrote.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) repeatedly has said she wants to be “fair” as House Democrats undertake their “impeachment inquiry,” but Democrats are falling short of fairness, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy told Pelosi in an Oct. 3 letter. “I am writing to request you suspend all efforts surrounding your ‘impeachment inquiry’ until transparent and equitable rules and procedures are established to govern the inquiry,” McCarthy wrote. McCarthy and other Republicans say Democrats are so hell-bent on impeaching Trump that they have charged ahead without a full House vote, which would set rules and procedures for a formal impeachment proceeding.

The nonprofit Students for Fair Admissions (SFFA) brought this case, which alleged the president and fellows of Harvard College violated Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 by limiting the number of Asian American applicants accepted. Harvard acknowledges that its undergraduate admissions policies consider race as one factor among many, but insists that its use of race is consistent with the law. Judge Burroughs sided with Harvard. After a close review of her opinion, I found it problematic in several areas.

In recent days, it has come out not only that the intelligence community inspector general changed policy about secondhand information to fit this particular whistleblower complaint, but also that the whistleblower him- or herself was working with House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff and House Democrats before filing the complaint. President Trump called the whistleblower complaint a “scam” in a press conference with the Finnish president on Wednesday,

Whenever the Left makes a characterization of the Right, it’s safe to be that it’s probably projection. “Projection” is when someone attempts to mask one’s own negative attributes or characteristics by attributing them to others. Christine Blasey Ford accused Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault, but the Left—from Hollywood to Jeffrey Epstein to drag queen story hour for kids at public libraries—is a putrid cesspool of rape and pedophilia. Conservatives are labeled as racists, but the Left features such luminaries as recently fired anti-white New York Times editor Sarah Jeong and blackface aficionados like Virginia governor Ralph Northam and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The great triumph of recent American politics is for the people of your fine country to have elected as president a man who is the precise embodiment of what supercilious Europeans think Americans are really like. Pig-ignorant, arrogant, jingoistic, contemptuous of foreigners, loud-mouthed, badly dressed and irredeemably bumptious. So consuming is the European antipathy toward Donald Trump — he’s never read a book! He eats steak with ketchup! — that it afflicts leading politicians across our continent, people who would be better advised to button it a while and show a little bit of diplomacy to the leader of the free world. But they can’t: the contempt always bleeds through.

"Have you heard from the whistleblower?" MSNBC contributor Sam Stein asked House intelligence committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) on September 17, nine days before the complaint was released to the public. "We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower," Schiff responded at the time, never mentioning that one of his committee staffers had directly spoken to the whistleblower -- and that the staffer "shared some of what the [whistleblower] conveyed" with Schiff, according to the New York Times. The New York Times says the staffer referred the whistleblower to a (Democrat-connected) attorney to help him file a formal complaint with the intelligence community inspector general.

If the Trump administration continues to not cooperate with Congressional investigations, the president could be impeached on that alone, top Democrats threatened on Wednesday. Speaking at a press conference Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff reaffirmed Democrats’ new stance that they’ll consider any resistance from the administration as “further evidence of obstruction.” “Of course that was an article of impeachment against President Nixon,” the California Democrat said. For his part, Mr. Trump said Wednesday he was willing to go along with Democrats, but it’s not clear how far that cooperation will extend.

Because if Sanders lived under “Medicare for All,” things likely would not have gone as well. Sanders, along with every other Democrat pushing “Medicare for All” and its variants, constantly bleat about how the U.S. spends far more on health care but gets worse results than countries such as Canada or the U.K. But the quality measures – infant mortality and longevity – are notoriously unreliable for international comparisons.
