House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) issued a statement on Monday condemning President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Climate Agreement and declaring that the “growing climate crisis is the existential threat of our time.”Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had officially notified the United Nations on Monday that the United States was withdrawing from the agreement. The withdrawal will take effect one year from the day Pompeo made the notification.“As noted in his June 1, 2017 remarks, President Trump made the decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because of the unfair economic burden imposed on American workers, businesses, and taxpayers

Pelosi is wrong again, of course, on so many levels, but primarily wrong on what constitutes an Existential Threat. She perhaps doesn't realize that she can never know the true meaning of existent until her means of income is no longer available to her. IOW, when she gets off our payroll. She could lose that position due to the real Existential Threat to the USA. Communism, in all of the forms.

Funny how the U.S. has been reducing Co2 immisions all along without signing the Paris accord. Huh?? Why's that and how is it possible? It's because the USA is good stewards of the enviornment.

Let's play pretend for a moment. Climate change is taking place, all fixes for this problem require very little pain on anyone, a small amount of money, and no one (government) takes control over the masses by telling them what they can and cannot do. No dem would be interested in dealing with this "problem". It's money and control. Don't kid yourself. And they will not live under all the crap rules they will expect us to.

I can hardly wait for the cooling to get serious. Four months now with almost no sunspots. Many are predicting a solar minimum but not known how bad. It could be very bad (think little ice age). What will the global warming crowd say as the ice sheets start creeping down Canada and the wheat crops start declining.

Hogwash. Entirely fictional. The ONLY physical manifestations of "the climate crisis" are the fake hysteria in the political classes and the money being wasted on propaganda efforts which are selling this phony crisis. There is no actual physical thing or event which is an actual manifestation of this "crisis". Has anyone died of from "the rising oceans", the same extremely slow and unchanged in rate for centuries? There are FEWER hurricanes and tornadoes than in the early part of the 20th century. There are no increases of any sort of events which might herald their fake crisis. Just not happening. There is NO crisis. NOTHING new is happening except political hay being made.

I'm not real clear on exactly what climate crisis she is talking about. Today where I am it is 60°. A year ago on this date it was 75°, the year before that it was 61°, and in 2016 it was 70°. You could say it is colder than the norm. Not unusual to have various temperatures, but nothing to get excited about.

PDJT had two main reasons for withdrawing from Obama's unratified treaty commitment. One was the unfair economic burden imposed on America. The other was the surrender of our national sovereignty in matters of law. When President Trump announced his decision, cases were already being prepared to win court verdicts binding Americans to foreign laws. In other words, "lawfare had been declared" and we have plenty of federal judges who are ready and willing to kick our Constitution to the curb and enforce foreign laws here in the USA. As to actually reducing pollution, well, the USA is doing far better than most of those parasite countries that saw the Paris Treaty as their meal ticket to Uncle Sam's table. So sorry to disappoint, folks, but you are no longer on the guest list.

For proponents, it's a change that must be made to fight climate change. For natural gas companies, it's a threat to their

Why Study Latin? 32 replies

Oxford professor Nicola Gardini urges people to read and study Latin. He believes that Latin is the antidote for the modern age, which seems transfixed by the spontaneous, the easy, and the ephemeral. His new book, Long Live Latin: The Pleasures of a Useless Language, argues that Latin combines truth and beauty with the timelessness of art. People should study Latin for all the reasons people should read literature. In his Confessions, St. Augustine (354–430 C.E.) “placed the learning of Latin under God’s purview,” Gardini writes. Augustine believed Latin drew a child closer to God, “the truest truth.” Gardini argues that Latin contains the logic and precision of math

Shortly thereafter, The Times published University of Washington Professor Emeritus Stephen Warren’s reply to Mr. Westneat: “Actually, there is something worse.

This week, Rep. Jim Jordan was officially moved to the House Intelligence Committee, from Oversight, in order to be part of the coming public interrogations of witnesses summoned by committee Chairman Adam Schiff.Jordan is a pit bull, exactly what the committee needs among its Republicans. It was in Pelosi's purview to refuse Jordan's appointment, and she did not.Hmmm. Is it possible that even she is sick and tired of Schiff's mendacity, his secrecy, his shutout of Republican questions, his witness tampering? He even advised "witnesses" not to answer questions from Republicans. Most of these people being called to testify are not witnesses to anything relevant;

No one appears to be happy that the mean birds — as many as 60 of them — have muscled in on Holiday City in Toms River and become a gobbling nuisance, according to reports. “The turkeys are taking over,” one resident told News 12 New Jersey. “It’s like an infestation." The woman said people think it’s a laughing matter but it’s serious. “When

Though The View has been on television since 1997 and its numerous hosts have come and gone, it is a mystery as to who watches it. In its formative years, it may have been watchable, even occasionally newsworthy; Barbra Walters was an actual journalist. Now, from the clips that are picked up and aired by other news outlets, it has clearly devolved into a slugfest -- vicious, leftist women attack their guests if remotely conservative. There is zero respect for any guest with a politically incorrect opinion. They slobbered over Chelsea Clinton as if she were the Queen of England and attacked Donald Trump Jr.
