Greta Thunberg scores with 'Time,'
as activism replaces achievement

Original Article

Greta Thunberg, pronounced “Toon-berg,” has just been named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year” for 2019 because — well, because, she has a cadre of left-leaners who saw in her the necessary theater skills to publicly shame an entire world of fossil fuel users while keeping a straight face. That’s not how “Time” put it. But that’s the truth. What’s so remarkable about Thunberg is she has absolutely no accomplishments to her name. (Snip) Here’s Time’s gag-worthy opener: “Greta Thunberg sits in silence in the cabin of the boat that will take her across the Atlantic Ocean. Inside, there’s a cow skull hanging on the wall, a faded globe,

Comments:

To be fair, 0bama was named Time Magazine's Person of the Year twice, 2008 and 2012. Since he won the Nobel Peace Prize, Greta has a way to go. The new template is activism and not achievement (0bama being their symbol). This ought to set the whole social networking millennials on fire to be the next Greta. My fear is that Pope Francis will have a statue of Greta placed within the Vatican grounds.

I thought Time had gone away. Anyhow, Greta is a fitting choice for that publication. Both are pretty much insignificant, except to nut jobs. They will be making someone's gold fish the next choice, because even animals are ''persons.''

Thunberg is extremely unwell. The eyes are the window to the soul, and you can see the darkness, anger, and spitefulness there. The same thing is visible with another freak of nature, Megan Rapinoe. Both think the world should pay attention to the filth they spew. How dare they?

A bratty, mouthy, ignorant, unschooled (literally) teen with mental problems is "Person of the Year". Says a lot more about how foolish and irrelevant "Time" has become than anything about the brat.

It is TIME for little Miss Greta to go back to school and actually learn something. Like how science works, for example. One does not begin with a conclusion (People Bad) and work backwards. One collects data first. One does not collect data and then throw away that which does not fit. Doing so gives wrong results. We know she is physically handicapped and emotionally immature. We know she is being used by the One-Worlder Stalinists. We know she can spew invective as well as Sharpton, Schiff, Nadler, AOC. and all the rest. What a pity that Person of the Year should be debased to newsworthy face of the moment! Go away, TIME. Your TIME has passed.

Time magazine gives Mad Magazine legitimacy. Not a surprise this is the same leftist publication that named Hitler 'Man of the Year' before he started WWII and invaded all of Europe while killing millions of Jewish people. The little angry pig tail crybaby, Greta, is in good company.

Activism replaces achievement this says... Doesn't being named one of the Left's saints qualify as an achievement for somebody whose only deed was condescendingly reprimanding the U.N.? Like when Zippy was awarded the NPP for simply getting elected, the Time honor is basically a Participation Trophy for playing on the Progressive team.

If Greta were truly a climate crusader, she would decline this undeserved award. After all, how many trees will be murdered for paper, chemical fumes spewed into the atmosphere during printing, vehicle exhaust used to deliver the paper magazines, and the space taken up in landfills for the discarded (unsold) magazines? Will Greta lecture TIME on the evils of their industry and how they are are moving up the clock towards our certain doom?????? Just wondering.....

Trump tangles with ‘Cryin’ Chuck
Schumer over China trade deal

President Trump slammed Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer — needling him as “Cryin’ Chuck” — over criticism of his new trade deal with China. “Chuck Schumer sat for years during the Obama Administration and watched as China ripped off the United States,” Trump tweeted Saturday. “Now, without even seeing it, he snipes at our GREAT new deal with China. Too bad Cryin’ Chuck!” The partial trade agreement, announced Friday, canceled a new set of tariffs set to take effect this weekend, and scaled back tariffs that remain in place. In exchange, China agreed to buy more US farm products and remove some of its retaliatory tariffs on American goods.

According to the report, Danish security officials arrested the terrorists and also seized a variety of weapons. In July, Mossad Director Yossi Cohen noted that his agency has thwarted a large number of terror attacks, especially on airliners, across the world.

A spokeswoman for Melania Trump on Friday defended President Trump for mocking Greta Thunberg, explaining that the 16-year-old climate activist is a public figure while the president’s 13-year-old son is a private individual who “deserves” to be left out of the public eye. “Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy,” Stephanie Grisham, who serves as top communication aide for the first lady and the White House, said in a statement, CNN reported. Mr. Trump sparked a wave of backlash Thursday after he said it was “ridiculous” that Greta was recently named Time magazine’s Person of the Year.

For the first time ever, women make up the majority of U.S. medical school students this year, according to the Association of American Medical Colleges. Women just barely surpassed the number of men enrolled in medical schools, comprising 50.5% of the student population. The milestone builds upon earlier turning points for women in 2017 and 2018. In 2017, women accounted for most of first-year students in medical schools. Last year, they made up the majority of medical school applicants. “This is a welcomed milestone,” said Dr. John Prescott, the AAMC’s chief academic officer. “Women have long been the majority of U.S. college graduates

Hermit crabs face a uniquely competitive real estate market. They need bigger and bigger shells throughout their lives, but can’t grow these homes themselves. So they rely on castoff snail shells, and are constantly on the lookout for better properties entering the market. A study that will be published next month in the journal Physica A found that the distribution of these shells in one hermit crab population was surprisingly similar to the distribution of wealth in human societies. That may make hermit crabs one of the first animals known to experience wealth inequality. (Snip)“Vacancy chains are just another way of transferring property,” he said.

Republicans turned the second day of House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings into a direct attack on Joe Biden's son Hunter – citing his cocaine use and ugly public divorce as they tried to amend the Democrats' articles of impeachment against Donald Trump. Just minutes after the panel voted down a GOP amendment to strike down an abuse of power article, Donald Trump loyalist Rep. Matt Gaetz introduced a three-line amendment that explicitly mentioned Hunter Biden and the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma. It would change the articles of impeachment to allege that Trump's call to Ukraine's president was seeking information on Hunter Biden, not his father Joe -

A British scientist found penguins engaging in 'depraved' sexual activity including rape and 'prostitution' more than 100 years ago, a new book has revealed. George Murray Levick made the findings in 1910 but his manuscript was too shocking to publish in Edwardian Britain. On his travels, he witnessed a kind of penguin 'prostitution' in which stones would be exchanged for female penguins. (Snip) In his account, Levick described witnessing 'gang rape' and sexual abuse of chicks, according to The Sun which has seen a copy of the book. Female penguins would be 'pimped out' with stones, but would sometimes run away with them after a courtship ritual, he said.

To achieve that goal, the former New York City mayor and multi-billionaire business and media mogul on Friday unveiled a plan that would shutter all 251 remaining coal plants across the country by 2030 and replace them all with clean energy.

BROWNSVILLE, Texas -- Salvador Castillo was yearning for tranquility when he became enchanted by a one-acre homestead close -- but not too close -- to the city, a place where cows graze beneath whispering mesquite trees on the property's edge. Castillo, an Afghanistan war veteran, and his wife bought the home using military benefits and grew their family into their new neighborhood -- about half a mile from a bend in the Rio Grande. They never imagined a border wall could dissect their property someday. But the first letter, stamped with an official government seal, arrived about a year ago. Their neighbors, the Carrascos and Trevinos, got them too.

When it comes to the unlawful surveillance on Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, the most important question is, what did President Obama know and when did he know it? If we are to believe the testimony in the Justice Department inspector general’s report on FISA abuse, Obama didn’t know anything about the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Neither did his attorney general, her deputy, or anyone in the White House. At least not that they can recall – an expression used over 200 times in the report. Yet against this we have the Sept. 2, 2016, text message from Lisa Page to her paramour Peter Strzok saying “POTUS wants to know everything we are doing.”
