Al Gore flubbed the name of activist Greta Thunberg as he tried to commend her as a leader of the movement to tackle climate change, a cause he has long championed. "When morally-based, social revolutions gain the momentum necessary when the young generation takes on the cost," the former vice president said at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. "Greta Thunberry, and she is quick to deflect to all of the others who have followed her lead and joined her in leading — this is a global phenomenon." Gore, 71, also tweeted out a photo with Thunberg on Wednesday. "Great

As a 'leader' Greta is more like a lemming or perhaps the Pied Piper. The child is delusional and all the elites are lining up to validate her precious 'feelings'. Makes me want to barf.

You couldn't make this stuff up. Sure, you can tweak Greta's name. But could you somehow get Algore to actually say it? But he does it for us without us asking him. What a guy! Maybe we could get him and Biden to do a doubles act. Leftist dems have become delightfully self destructive.

One of Barack Obama’s top advisers as president says voters have a ‘chilling’ lack of interest in the impeachment case, which he blames on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s ‘cynical calculation’. David Axelrod, Mr Obama’s former chief strategist, met with a focus group of Democratic voters in Chicago on Friday in which he says impeachment “didn’t come up” until more than an hour into the discussion. When it did, the voters said they were “ready to move on” because the outcome of the Senate trial - in which Mr Trump’s team began his defence on Saturday - was a foregone

Elizabeth Warren hasn’t even lost yet and she’s already started the stages of grief. Denial. Those polls showing Warren getting her clock cleaned by Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders in Iowa and New Hampshire are wrong. We’re gonna pull a John Kerry. Kerry’s campaign was written off in 2004, then he came back to win Iowa and New Hampshire, remember? Anger. Warren’s post-debate venting at Bernie Sanders — refusing to shake his hand and accusing him of calling her a liar on national TV — would certainly indicate she is mad at the Vermont senator for stealing the progressive mantle

Hillary Clinton promised in 2016 that she would make history, and she did. She lost a winnable election where she enjoyed every conceivable advantage over her opponent, including a roughly 2-to-1 edge in campaign spending. Clinton then went on to become the first failed nominee in modern American history who cannot manage to move on. John McCain returned to the Senate after his loss in 2008 to Barack Obama. John Kerry similarly went back to work in the Senate after the 2004 election and later joined Obama's administration. Al Gore still complains about losing in 2000 to George W. Bush,

MEXICO CITY — One year ago, Mexico’s often chaotic southern border appeared relatively orderly: Mexican authorities processed thousands of U.S.-bound migrants for humanitarian visas, allowing them to travel north legally. The free-transit regimen was a drastic change of policy pushed by a new Mexican president, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, who had denounced his predecessors for having done what he called the dirty work of Washington in deterring migrants’ northbound passage. But this week, López Obrador’s government greeted migrants in a more hostile fashion. Mexican National Guard troops in full riot gear blocked their way and fired tear gas canisters to disperse those seeking to breach the nation’s border with Guatemala.

Rep. Adam B. Schiff arrived in the Senate this week as an impeachment trial manager, leaving the House with a trail of inaccuracies, conspiracy theories and attempts at obstruction, the record shows. Liberal media have bathed the California Democrat in praise. A CNN analyst called him “dazzling.” A Washington Post reporter tweeted that his trial argument to convict President Trump was one for the ages. Conservatives take a decidedly different view. They wonder on social media why a congressman who floated unproven conspiracies and a false dossier is leading the case against Mr. Trump, and they ask why the liberal media are so uncritical.

She thought even a symbolic victory would be an important victory, because it was important for her daughter to have a woman president to look up to. “I want her to see a woman president,” she said, “to help her believe that she could become a president herself.” It’s an oft-touted argument for representation: children need role models – successful people of their own gender or race – in order to become successful in adulthood.

President Donald Trump's defense team consistently drilled down on one key point as it began opening arguments in his impeachment trial on Saturday: the evidence against Trump is limited, at best, and he can't be impeached because the public hasn't heard direct evidence of his misconduct from him or anyone close to him.(Snip)Republicans, meanwhile, say that if the evidence against Trump is as overwhelming as House Democrats say it is, the Senate doesn't need to call new witnesses. But on Saturday, Trump's lawyers seemed to bolster Democrats' case by repeatedly claiming that they hadn't heard from a single witness who had "direct contact" with the president.
