Climate activist Greta Thunberg apologized after saying that world leaders who don't act on climate change should be put "against the wall."Thunberg, 16, who has been striking against climate change by skipping school for the past year, claimed on Saturday that the Swedish to English translation incorrectly implied she thought politicians should be killed."Yesterday I said we must hold our leaders accountable and unfortunately said 'put them against the wall'. That’s Swenglish: “att ställa någon mot väggen” (to put someone against the wall) means to hold someone accountable," she said. "That’s what happens when you improvise speeches in a second language."

#2, she doesn't appear to have reached menarch, so Midol would not be necessary. It isn't a second language poroblem - it is a problem when a mentally ill child is given the wrong words to spout.

Said apology accepted, OBVIOUSLY it was my fault that I can't translate LITERAL Swedish correctly. Sorry Greta, mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. Translate this for me "Up Against the Wall, Redneck Mother …. she 16 years and thinks she runs the planet … Have a nice train trip.

This little mentally ill child has never "improvised a speech" in her life. That would take a much higher level of maturity than she is mentally capable of. She read off her script that some evil lie-beral adult wrote for her, and it meant the exact threat that it said!!!! But now that it got way more blowback than they expected, now they wrote her a nice little apology speech. The evil adult puppet masters that pull her strings need to be neutered, and she needs to get the mental health services that she needs instead of wasting her teenage years as a performing show poodle for the enviro-Nazis!!!!!!

How much does a 16-year-old know about climate change? Only the one-sided articles produced by climate change gurus have written, which are not complete studies. There are as many studies that oppose the severe climate change that is published by the scientist that claim disaster is upon us. Past climate activity is ignored. The last mini ice age ended in 1850. In the last 2,500 years, there have been two mini ice ages along with Noah's flood. Don't tell me Noah's flood is a biblical myth, it happened. They have discovered parts of the ark and have posted reasonable information that the ark parts are real and part of a gigantic boat.

I would think that calling to have the leader of your country executed for not doing what you demand should be enough to revoke her visa, for life, along with those of her handlers. We have enough narrow-minded violent hate-mongers without importing more.

She meant what she said. The left and the climatistas would do exactly that if given the power. They would literally use execution as a means to enforce their will on us peasants. #20 brings up an interesting point about the end of the Little Ice Age. It was tapering off but still extremely cold when the Civil War broke out. One of the biggest reasons the North waged war on the South was that they would lose access to the warm water ports...Charleston, Savannah, Mobile, New Orleans, etc. The northern ports were still ice-choked in the winter and mostly unavailable. There goes the North's import-export business and Lincoln had those businessmen screaming bloody murder at him to invade the South.

Public support for impeachment is only at 42 per cent as the House continues to move forward with filing two articles against Donald Trump, a poll revealed Sunday.A few recent polls have shown a slight decrease from those support the proceedings, but most surveys also reveal Americans are very split on the matter. The CBS News/YouGov poll conducted December 11-13 shows while 42 per cent support impeachment and removal when the ordeal ultimately reaches the Senate next month, the exact same percentage of respondents are against it. Of the more than 4,500 Americans polled, 22 per cent said the Senate

The symbol, which is formed by making a circle with the forefinger and the thumb, has been considered by the Southern Poverty Law Center to be a white supremacist symbol, although it had long been considered the symbol for OK.

By the time Harvey Milk's supervisors in the US Navy officially questioned him about his sexuality, he had graduated from officer school and served as a diving officer on a submarine rescue ship during the Korean War. Then his superiors caught him in a park that was popular with gay men, his nephew said. The sighting raised questions about Milk's sexual orientation in an era when the military banned gay, lesbian and bisexual service members. Milk was forced to resign. In a move that signalled an about-face on the issue of gay rights, the Navy began to construct the USNS Harvey Milk

Clearly Greta Thunberg is being exploited by her cynical puppetmasters, but equally clearly she’s a tiresome, bizarre Marxist scold whose exploitation of the hapless dummies who buy into the climate change hoax is part of what is an increasingly violent plot to undermine capitalism and freedom. Recently, the cretins at TIME, which shockingly still exists in 2019, named her “Person of the Year.” (Snip) In 2029, after the world hasn’t ended but her usefulness has, she’ll be a Jeopardy question and probably shacked up with an unemployed performance artist named Björn in an Oslo suburb. Fun fact: “Greta Thunberg” is Swedish for “Cindy Sheenhan.”

The comedians Bud Abbott and Lou Costello did a routine about baseball that is a cult favorite. In it, they kept batting back and forth the question, “Who’s on First?” “What” was on second and “I Don’t Know” was on third. “I Don’t Give a Darn” was shortstop. “Who’s On First” was a humorous and outlandish exchange between the two comics. As the routine went, so politics goes today. President Trump labels any Republican who questions his erratic and narcissistic style as a RINO (Republican In Name Only).

Texas - Beto O’Rourke isn’t running for Senate again, and Democrats who have unusually high hopes for Texas in 2020 are facing an unsettled landscape. There’s no clear frontrunner among a dozen Democrats challenging Republican incumbent John Cornyn. None have raised big money and most candidates remain widely unknown. O’Rourke narrowly lost to Republican Sen. Ted Cruz last year and his presidential bid flamed out in November. Democrats urged the former El Paso congressman to run again for Senate, but the deadline to get on the 2020 ballot in Texas came and went this week.

I'm starting to watch the reaction to this Tessa Majors murder case like a slo-mo car crash. I noted the other day that the New York Times was pretty obnoxious to the Barnard University college student who was murdered in a dangerous park outside Columbia University, largely by trying to define victim's entire life by her green hair and liking for punk rock, as if kids don't go through stages. Kind of harsh to define someone that way at the grand sendoff... And far from being 'worldly' as the Times quoted someone as saying, those kinds of things are childish, and yes, the victim was in fact very young and naive.

Touching the thumb and index finger to make a circle, with the remaining three fingers held outstretched, is a gesture that people around the world have made for centuries, mostly in positive contexts. It is used for several purposes in sign languages, and in yoga as a symbol to demonstrate inner perfection.It figures in an innocuous made-you-look game. Most of all, it has been commonly used for generations to signal “OK,” or all is well. But in recent years, it has also been appropriated for a more malign purpose — to signify “white power.” The gesture has become an extremist

Whatever its legal merit or lack thereof, the upcoming impeachment trial in the Senate is a political show trial that is intended to affect the upcoming presidential election for sure. So let’s consider the political implications, not the legal merits. The latest news is that the Republican leadership is thinking about trying to vote to acquit President Trump without a trial or hearing any witnesses. That has never been done, but it would be a smart move politically. Despite the president’s statements that he wants a full trial in the Senate, an impeachment trial is unlikely to help President Trump win reelection.
