New Delhi: More than 100 people have died of exposure to severe cold weather and carbon monoxide poisoning over the past two weeks in Afghanistan. According to a report in Tolo News, the State Ministry for Disaster Management said on Sunday that the deaths have happened in 15 provinces. The report further added, “At least 104 people have died in various provinces. At least 50 houses have been damaged or destroyed,” said Shafay Rahimi, a spokesman for the ministry. CORRECTIONS*


Is there a global cold wave on the way? Did IPCC misunderstand climate? Those investing in global warming have a billion-dollar reason to lie about it and plenty of blankets in case it happens. But. Many others would like the question examined.

Easy solution to the freezing Afghans crisis - - fly them all to Davos - - on private jets. The only place where it's cold in Davos - - is the ice cubes under the shrimp and lobster buffet.

The high here in the middle of the country is predicted to be 9 on Sunday. Just think how cold it would be without this global warming!

This could become a reality in the good 'ol USA in the next 5-10 years as the sun continues to sink into a decade or three slumber, or a Grand Solar Minimum (GSM). Apparently the Solar Constant used in calculations ain't constant enough to prevent general cooling, if not a sudden drop in temperatures over most of the planet. The deaths that will happen with this cooling will likely be many times more than what they would've been without the meddling of the greenie-weenie cabal (bedwetters all), the globalists swine, grand solar idiots like alboor, lurch and the "eminent" James Hansen (who has been wrong more often?) with their grandly delusional machinations consisting of wind turbines and electric everything, not to mention fairy dust and unicorn farts. Hopefully everyone will remember the folks listed above, amongst others, if this cooling does come about, and they receive their just deserts.

I'm always skeptical of weather deaths. So many have died in the flood, that many in the hurricane, and there are deaths in the cold. Well, news media gotta have drama.

Can we lose the carbon monoxide deaths from weather related? They are invariably ignorance and poorly designed and executed combustion. Don't run the generator in the living room.

The solution to this is to get off fossil fuels entirely. Problem solved! In all seriousness, if they follow through on the elimination of fossil fuels, there would be millions of deaths in poor countries.

Carbon monoxide poisoning. When we lived in the CA high desert decades ago, there were multiple casualties almost every winter. Using BBQs etc for heat, windows taped shut.

ANDREW NEIL: The 'Dump Joe' bandwagon

A certain conventional wisdom about the 2024 presidential race has dominated political discourse for much of this year: Donald Trump is unstoppable when it comes to winning the Republican nomination but cannot hope to retake the White House come the general election. What endears him to his party’s base repels the independent and moderate voters he needs to win the presidency. So, Joe Biden is clear favorite to be elected for a second term. That conventional wisdom is now smashed to smithereens – and not in a good way, for those who don’t want to see Trump back in the Oval Office.

I have written quite a bit about the Democrats’ emerging problem with nonwhite voters (for example, here, here and here), manifest in steadily declining margins among this demographic. Well, now it’s official.......Democrats may simply have misjudged what is most important to nonwhite voters, reflecting perhaps the increasing domination of their coalition by white college graduate voters, virtually the only demographic among whom the party has been doing steadily better. The agenda of white college graduates, particularly the progressives who support the party so fervently and fuel the party’s activist base, is less coterminous with that of nonwhite voters than Democrats seem to believe.

BOGOTA, Aug 3 (Reuters) - Nicolas Petro, the eldest son of Colombian President Gustavo Petro, on Thursday admitted that illegal money entered his father's election campaign last year, the prosecutor handling the case said on Thursday. Nicolas Petro, 37, was arrested on Saturday in the city of Barranquilla alongside his ex-wife, Daysuris del Carmen Vasquez, who was quoted in the media in March saying that two people accused of having ties to drug trafficking gave her former spouse cash to support the president's election campaign.

The mayor of one of Ecuador’s main Pacific ports was assassinated a month ahead of presidential elections as skyrocketing crime overwhelms the authorities, making the formerly peaceful nation as violent as Mexico and Colombia. The mayor of Manta, Agustin Intriago, 38, was gunned down during a public event on Sunday, in the second deadly attack on a politician in a week. A woman also lost her life in the attack, while two of the attackers were wounded and are in custody in a hospital, according to Interior Minister Juan Zapata.

You might have noticed a media narrative taking shape the last few days about how Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ presidential campaign has “stalled.” [...] Perhaps what we’re seeing is less about him and still less about 2024 or the upcoming GOP primary scrum, and more about what happened in 2020. Put bluntly, maybe what we’re seeing now is an early sign that what Democrats, Big Tech, and corporate media did in 2020 was inject poison into our political system, and the 2024 election cycle is going to show us just how deadly that poison is.

The obvious reaction to the bizarre idea that Chris Christie will soon enter the 2024 GOP primaries and then win the general election – “Fat chance! – is accurate on every level. The rotund Republican has zero support among the base, having missed his window a decade ago and having gone on to become one of those Republicans whose primary function is to trash other Republicans – a chubby chimp dancing for dimes as the MSNBC organ grinders play.

For a casual observer of Chile, the election result might have come as a shock. A country that just a year ago seemed to be undergoing a progressive transformation, with a tattooed, thirty-something president taking office and an expansive new Constitution apparently on the way, now seems to be lurching in the opposite direction. ... While reasons vary somewhat by country, the insatiable appetite for drugs in both traditional consumer markets like Europe and the U.S., and increasingly within the region itself, is an obvious common thread.

Every book published prior to 2008 has been removed from a public high school library in Canada to ensure that kids are not exposed to non-inclusivity. Yes, you read that correctly. Imagine the surprise of students at Erindale Secondary School in Mississauga, Ontario, when they entered the school's library last spring to discover...empty shelves. Staff told them, "If the shelves look emptier right now it's because we have to remove all books [published] prior to 2008." Why? Because "The Peel District School Board works to ensure that the books available in our school libraries are culturally responsive, relevant, inclusive,

Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson (D) is looking into opening taxpayer-funded, city-owned grocery stores in areas in which businesses have pulled out due to rampant crime. Johnson announced a partnership with the Economic Security Project to look into the possibility of opening city-owned grocery stores. The first step in the partnership will be to perform a feasibility study, but the city did not provide a timeline, the Chicago Tribune reported. Johnson claimed his administration is “committed to advancing innovative, whole-of-government approaches to address these inequities.”

Apparently, the geniuses in Dove’s marketing department were unaware of the backlash that cost Bud Light and Target billions of dollars in market value earlier this year when they rolled out Zyahna Bryant for a “fat liberation” campaign despite her history of making false racial accusations.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that '80 is the new 40' when asked during Friday's briefing about how President Joe Biden, 80, plans to address concerns about his advanced age as he runs for reelection. A late August AP-NORC poll found that 77 percent of Americans believe Biden is too old to be effective for four more years - with 69 percent of Democrats agreeing. A Wall Street Journal poll from earlier this month had similar findings, with 73 percent of voters saying Biden is too old to run again, including two-thirds of Democrats.

At this point, the people in power behind the scenes at the White House have to be pulling their hair out over this question: How do you solve a problem like Joe Biden?

This allows us a glimpse into the Democrat presidential strategy for 2024: run Jill Biden. In order for Jill to win the Democrat nomination for president, she needs to do several important things: 1. Box out Kamala Harris, Michelle Obama, and Gavin Newsom. 2. Maintain DNC support for Joe. 3. Keep Democrat contributors in line. 4. Do more and more of the president's job now.

A union representing nearly 150,000 autoworkers launched a strike early Friday morning against the Big 3 U.S. automakers -- General Motors, Ford and Stellantis. The United Auto Workers, or UAW, and the car manufacturers failed to reach a contract agreement before a deadline set by the union for Thursday at 11:59 p.m. ET. Less than two hours before the deadline, UAW president Shawn Fain announced the plants where union members would strike if a tentative agreement wasn't reached in time. By midnight Friday, that amounted to approximately 12,700 union workers, including ones at GM in Wentzville, Missouri; Stellantis in Toledo, Ohio; and Ford’s Wayne, Michigan plant.
