Greta Thunberg's father today revealed he feared depression would kill her before she launched her 'climate crisis' campaign as the teenager used control of a BBC show to blast Donald Trump and insist meeting him would be a 'waste of time'. Svante Thunberg told his 16-year-old daughter it was 'a bad idea' to lead the campaign to halt global warming – but now believes it 'saved her' after she stopped eating and talking for months during a long bout of depression. Speaking on a special edition of the BBC Radio 4 Today programme guest-edited by Greta, Mr Thunberg said in a rare interview:

Hey Dad, your daughter is mentally ill. If you truly love her pull her off the world stage and get her some good mental health counseling.

Whoa. What teenage girl living the good life in Sweden becomes depressed and then suddenly, she's the world's expert on "climate change?" I mean, it must have been really really hard living in Sweden with your parents as opposed to being a teenage girl being sexually trafficked or working in some slave labor prison camp in China making some crappy item to sell back to the West or.... The whole family needs serious mental health counselling.

No 4 has it right: she could have gone along, yammering about climate change all day long. But who, in their right mind and with critical thinking faculties, would pay attention to a 16-yr old with Asperger AND mental health challenges? Sir David??! The U.N.?!!

It is inevitable that the absurd and mentally ill Miss Thunberg will suffer a post-ecstatic depression after she is no longer the center of attention. If she carries through with her pre-world tour plans she will have been useful to the globalist crowd and we’ll have schools, parks, monuments, children’s books, TV series, movies, etc., etc., etc., foisted on us in her honor. Our elite overlords hate deplorables and one diabolical plan they have is to bore us to death.

How about the enormous price the REST OF US have had to pay for her "problem". She is demanding $trillions to make her feel safe and pushing technology solutions that CANNOT work to fix a problem that doesn't exist. Further, if we did all she asked it would make almost no difference according to the fantasy science she espouses. We are being asked to buy into her delusions to make her feel good. It's too bad she is a little out of whack but destroying civilization is not worth it to "fix" her.

Do you people remember the attention paid to young girls who were 'youngest pilot' kids? One of them was Vicki Van Metre, Meadville, Pa, who flew with her flight instructor to various locations, setting bogus records.. And when the attention died down, Vicki died, by blowing her brains out. It turns out that she suffered from severe depression, and pretending to be a pre-teen pilot seemed to help her depression. And Vicki's parents were, arguably, enablers. Greta may be on the same trajectory with a different mission.

Her zealotry has the makings of a real “Hitler Youth” and I don’t use that label lightly. Wish her parents would put her on a good medicine regimen and send her snippy little ass back to school.

He passed it on to Wikileaks, who widely distributed the information. Unlike the DNC emails Wikileaks published, which were purely political in nature and not government documents, what Manning stole put lives in danger.

The White House National Security Council staff is being downsized sharply in a bid to improve efficiency within the policy coordinating body by consolidating positions and cutting staff. A second, unspoken thrust of the overhaul is a hoped-for end to what many critics see as a string of politically damaging, unauthorized disclosures of sensitive information. Leaks of President Trump’s conversations with foreign leaders and other damaging disclosures likely originated with anti-Trump officials in the White House who stayed over from the Obama administration, according to several current and former White House officials. White House National Security Adviser Robert C. O’Brien is leading the NSC reform effort.

When Kimberly Dudik ran for her fourth term in the Montana House, state officials told her she could not use campaign money to pay for child care for her four young children. She is now running for attorney general and is trying to visit a big chunk of the sprawling state, spending hours on the road. That means she needs even more help picking up her kids at school and day care when she's away and her husband has a late night at the office. (snip) Only six states have laws specifically allowing campaign money to be used for child care.
