TIME's Commie Nag of
the Year Can Go Pound Sand

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.”

Oh but but the mean, bad orange man "bullied" the poor "autistic" teenager!! The lefties compared his tweet to her (mentioning she should concentrate on her anger management and take it easy) with all those big kids who beat up and hospitalized the 14 year old boy for wearing a MAGA hat. Yes, the girl is being used by the left for their agenda to destroy capitalism and freedom.

Bet she's a real prize for the boys in her country, no? Probably the dames is more like it! I hope she is honest and moves to Russia and does one of her pouty arms crossed demands of Putin. She will discover quickly the joys of Socialism and the Gulag!

Wow! What a great column! The most complete and well-deserved excoriation of Greta the Simple I've ever read. It's richly hilarious. Sort of equal parts Mark Steyn and Dennis Miller, but all Schlichter.

Many of the European countries are falling for St. Greta’s insanity but I’d say that last week’s election proves that the UK is not one of them. I look forward to the day when we can honestly say, “Greta who?”

The sad part of this is that we, myself included, are taking our frustrations out on a brainwashed child simply because she has become a focal point for the fraud committed by adults who are knowingly and willingly fomenting chaos, manufacturing a pretend disaster for which the only solution offered is one world global communism. We know Al Gore doesn't believe it, we know the Obama's don't believe it by their own actions. Where they put their money betrays their lies. I suspect little Greta is 100% in as are countless other mush minds who fell victim to the propagandists.

Pippi Longnagging! Now there is a coffee spurt that'll last all day. Someone else called her Scoldilocks. Those funny names are scant cover for the fact that this girl-child is a brown-shirted Hitler Youth. Not a neo-Nazi, mind you but a full blown card carrying Nazi. Are her parents silent on purpose?

Sorry Kurt, but I believe that this kid Scoldilocks is the end result of being brainwashed and manipulated by adults for most of her life. Like Bill Ayers did with Obama, these evil and corrupted leftists built and turned loose on the world the perfect dupe to hide behind. She isn't coming up with this stuff all by herself. She has had help from other adults.. Parents who allow this to happen to their posterity are rotten people and should be the ones taking the flack here, not all on Scoldilocks. Glad the train company fired back at her attempts to embarrass them. That was great. She is a perfect example to the modern post war/revolution era of why Hitler and Mao exploited the youth. Once you have them properly and mentally prepared, they can be unfeeling and devoted to the State, not caring who they hurt. Just that their dear leader says they must act this way. She is a prime example. Look what she did to Hollywood's idiot leftists.

The "autistic" teenager is being abused, but not by President Trump. The abusers are those that have her into a political pawn by filling her head with a bunch of lies about Global Warming killing everybody in ten years. Ten years from now, when she realizes how badly she has been used, it will probably destroy her.

It could be argued that all teenagers are a pain-in-the-neck (or other anatomy parts) but this child reminds me of the Village of the Damned or some real life horror movie like the good little Nazi Youth members who turned in their own parents. That being said, she didn't get this crazy on her own. Someone poisoned her mind when she was about 8 or 9 and this is the result. Sad in more ways than one because she will live long enough to see she was used and made to be a fool. Then again, Paul R. Ehrlich (who is still alive at 87) has not recanted his stupid book "The Population Bomb" so maybe I'm all wet! Greta will live to 100 (being Norwegian and all) and still be carrying the sign that says "Ice Age Tomorrow!".

Trump's approval rating is

in the history of polling
16 replies
Posted by Pluperfect 12/18/2019 5:12:13 AM Post Reply
Through months of impeachment proceedings, Democrats, with the help of a parade of witnesses, have hammered away at President Trump for abusing power. Yet as the House prepares to vote on impeaching him, Trump's approval rating is virtually unchanged from before the process started — neither cratering from the negative news or benefiting from any large-scale backlash against impeachment. This has become a pattern for Trump, whose approval rating (while historically low) is the most stable in history — or at least since Gallup started measuring presidential approval during the Harry Truman presidency. Since taking office, Trump has never polled higher than 46% or lower than 35%,

During an interview on CNN on Monday night, House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters (D-CA) pushed a conspiracy theory that President Donald Trump colluded with Russia to win the 2016 election. She admitted that she doesn't have evidence to support the claim. Her entire conspiracy theory centers around the idea that Vladimir Putin helped get President Trump elected because he would remove the sanctions placed on Russia. "Because I believe, even though I don't have the facts to prove it, I believe that Putin wanted to lift the sanctions. He's always wanted to lift the sanctions that were placed on him because of his interfering and encouraging into Crimea.
WaPo Fact Checker Slams Pelosi
for ‘Bogus Talking Point’ on Guns

Posted by Pluperfect 12/18/2019 4:59:51 AM Post Reply
A Washington Post fact-check released Thursday gave House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) four Pinocchios for a "bogus talking point" about the number of children killed with firearms each year. Pelosi has repeatedly claimed that 47 percent of gun deaths were "teenagers or children," according to the Post. CDC data show the real number is closer to 9 percent, meaning the House speaker exaggerates the true number by more than fivefold. This discrepancy led the Post to assign Pelosi's claim the harshest rating on its fact-checking scale.

Former FBI Director James Comey initially portrayed last week’s damning report on the bureau’s probe of Russiagate as a vindication. This week, Comey admitted that Inspector General Michael Horowitz discovered “real sloppiness,” which is “concerning.” That characterization does not begin to cover the problems described by Horowitz, which this week prompted a highly unusual public rebuke from the court that reviews secret warrant applications under the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA). The FISA court called the FBI’s conduct “antithetical to the heightened duty of candor” that applies in such cases.

"Well clearly, there were mistakes made based on the inspector general's reports," Brennan responded.

General Michael Flynn pleaded guilty to one count of false statements in the Mueller miasma. After pleading guilty to the charge on two separate occasions, Flynn retained new counsel, proclaimed his innocence, alleged prosecutorial misconduct, urged the court to hold the prosecutors in contempt, and sought dismissal of the case against him based on government misconduct. Having chosen to forego a motion to withdraw his guilty plea and to waive his rights in connection with his guilty plea(s), Flynn was up against it with his post-plea motions. In a 92-page memorandum opinion issued yesterday (embedded below), Judge Emmet Sullivan denied Flynn’s motions

It was a hashtag prosecution, a social-media campaign posing as a legal case: #ExxonKnew. And like yesterday’s media balloon become today’s litter, its deflated remains floated back down to earth last week in a New York courtroom. Whatever you think of them otherwise, ExxonMobil’s communications on climate change had neither the intent nor the effect of wronging the company’s investors. New York’s since-disgraced attorney general Eric Schneiderman had no business bringing a securities-fraud case on that basis, and there was nothing his successor, Letitia James, could have done to rescue the case.

When repurchase agreement (repo) rates exploded in September and the Fed intervened in that market for the first time in more than a decade, interested parties cited corporate tax deadlines, regulations, and other minor reasons as the major factor. BIS Quarterly Review shines the light on the $23 trillion elephant in the room. “US repo markets currently rely heavily on four banks as marginal lenders,” the BIS Quarterly Review article by three economists explains.

Kaysville, Utah—For decades, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was one of Boy Scouts of America’s greatest allies and the largest sponsor of troops. But on Jan. 1, the Utah-based faith will deliver the latest blow to the struggling organization when it pulls out more than 400,000 young people and moves them into a new global program of its own. The change brings excitement and some melancholy for members of the faith and may push the Boy Scouts closer to the brink of bankruptcy as it faces a new wave of sex abuse lawsuits.

A proposal for a $569 million bond to build two new high school buildings in Midland failed by 25 votes in the November election, a margin slim enough it set off calls for a recount. The ballots were recounted manually, and to the delight of Midland ISD officials, the results flipped and the proposal passed by a margin of 11 votes. But last week, a Midland elections staffer found a box on the bottom of a shelf in the office containing 836 ballots that weren't tallied in the recount. Those votes threaten to again reverse the election results, which school officials are counting on
