  • Trump EXPLODES Over Chrissy Teigen’s ‘Filthy Mouth’
    When all of the people pushing so hard for Criminal Justice Reform were unable to come even close to getting it done, they came to me as a group and asked for my help.

    I got it done with a group of Senators & others who would never have gone for it. Obama couldn’t come close.

    A man named @VanJones68, and many others, were profusely grateful (at that time!).

    I SIGNED IT INTO LAW, no one else did, & Republicans deserve much credit.

    But now that it is passed, people that had virtually nothing to do with it are taking the praise.

    Guys like boring musician @johnlegend, and his filthy mouthed wife, are talking now about how great it is - but I didn’t see them around when we needed help getting it passed. “Anchor” @LesterHoltNBC

  • "The interesting aspect of the Cult of Muhammad is that he probably never existed. Muhammad was born two hundred years after his birth.

  • Pädophilie.

    Pädophile stehen so sehr hinter der Anstiftung zum Bösen, einer wahrhaft unendlichen Liste der schlimmsten Arten von Perversionen. Das Essen von menschlichem Körperabfall, Folter mit Gegenständen, unnatürliche Körperverstümmelungen, Mord und Kannibalismus treten unter Pädophilie immer wieder auf, weil der Akt der Pädophilie die Ursache ist, die diese Handlungen bewirkt.

    Die Kräfte, die es gibt, sind jetzt offen und versuchen, die Pädophilie zu normalisieren. Sie haben keine Angst, niemand hindert sie daran, die Gesellschaft zu infiltrieren. Die Leute wollen sie nicht aufhalten, sonst wären sie mit Waffen auf der Jagd nach ihnen und würden sie hinrichten.

    Ja, ich lese es eine Weile zurück Ich schätze, die Dinge müssen einfach viel schlimmer werden, bevor jemand Maßnahmen ergreift... aber wehe einem Pädophilen, der jedem Kind schadet, das ich kenne oder mit dem ich verwandt bin.... Ich werde persönlich für Gerechtigkeit sorgen, wenn eine solche Grausamkeit eintritt. Verstehe, dass diejenigen, die solche Dinge tun, des Todes würdig sind; und nicht nur diejenigen, die sie tun, sondern auch diejenigen, die ihnen zustimmen, die sie tun.

    "Sünde ist ein persönlicher Akt. Darüber hinaus tragen wir eine Verantwortung für die Sünden anderer, wenn wir bei ihnen zusammenarbeiten:

    - durch direkte und freiwillige Teilnahme an ihnen;

    - durch Bestellung, Beratung, Lob oder Genehmigung;

    GruesomeE Barbaric. Pedophilia.

    Paedophiles are so much behind the incitement to evil, a truly infinite list of the worst kinds of perversion. The eating of human body waste, torture with objects, unnatural body mutilation, murder and cannibalism occur repeatedly under paedophilia because the act of paedophilia is the cause that causes these actions.

    The forces that exist are now open and are trying to normalize paedophilia. They are not afraid, nobody prevents them from infiltrating society. People don't want to stop them, otherwise they would be hunting for them with weapons and executing them.

    Yes, I read it back a while I guess things just have to get a lot worse before someone takes action... but woe betide a pedophile who harms any child I know or am related to.... I will personally see to justice when such cruelty occurs. Understand that those who do such things are worthy of death; and not only those who do them, but also those who agree with them, who do them.

  • On the Malicious and Scientifically Illiterate Bullies Afraid of Greta Thunberg
    https://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/09/02/malicious-and-scientifically-illiterate-bullies-afraid-greta-thunberg
    Andrew Mitrovica

    It was, in a subtle way, a defining moment.

    After a 15-day trek across the Atlantic Ocean, Thunberg looked exhausted. Still, the 16-year-old climate change activist knew she had to talk about the meaning and purpose of her unorthodox journey with supporters who greeted her on an overcast New York shoreline.

    Predictably, the tired, petite Swedish schoolgirl faltered, losing her train of thought briefly before apologising. "I'm sorry," she said, "my brain is not working correctly."

    The crowd applauded. Energised by the encouragement, Thunberg finished her short speech, where she urged the rest of us to "work together, despite our differences" to avert "the biggest crisis humanity has faced … because, otherwise, it might be too late. Let's not wait any longer. Let's do it now."

    For me, that distinctly human moment crystalised the appeal of Thunberg—a young woman who, distressed at the world's inexorable destruction, was moved to do something about it. Alone, if necessary.

    In words and deeds, Thunberg is the embodiment of philosopher Howard Zinn's admonition: "We don't have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can quietly become a power no government can suppress, a power that can transform the world."

    She disdains celebrity. She makes no claim to heroism. She rebuffs efforts to idolise her. She isn't calculating or preoccupied with fame or ego. There is no artifice about her. She speaks plainly, without affectation or embroidery.

    In words and deeds, Thunberg is the embodiment of philosopher Howard Zinn's admonition: "We don't have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can quietly become a power no government can suppress, a power that can transform the world."

    Of course, the marauding swarm of vitriolic right-wing climate-change deniers see Thunberg—not how the prophetic Zinn envisioned her—but as a tiny, pretentious zealot who threatens the existing order. Their order. Their comforts. Their traditional "way of life".

    De rigueur, they have set out to discredit and, if possible, to destroy Thunberg with their, by now, familiar and crass modus operandi.

    They have mocked her. They have belittled her. They have denigrated her. They have insulted her. They have dismissed her. They have questioned her motives. They have suggested she is anti-democratic. They have, in the fetid recesses of the internet, even threatened her.

    To afford all their fuming, sophomoric attacks the imprimatur of seriousness, they insist—as they always do—that they are the implacable realists, who, unlike starry-eyed leftists, aren't duped by the media's veneration of a youngster peddling doom and gloom over the supposedly still-contested science about whether the end is nigh or not.

    They would, no doubt, recoil at any suggestion that their furious hostility towards Thunberg is also the product of a calcifying cynicism, seething malevolence or signature cruelty.

    Rather, they insist, it is an expression of their necessary role as sceptics or contrarians in the noble tradition of their philosophical patron saint in name only, Galileo, who also questioned the prevailing scientific orthodoxy.

    It is a lie and an insult. They aren't "sceptics" or "contrarians". They are scientifically illiterate bullies who amplify their malice and ignorance with a bullhorn on TV or keyboard on Twitter.

    They share no intellectual affinity with Galileo. None. Bereft of an argument that could remotely be considered empirically or rationally sound, they traffic in hyperbole and smears designed to pummel Thunberg into an inconsequential afterthought.

    The teenage revolutionary must be stopped before the climate revolution she leads goes beyond their ability to halt it.

    Consider what the Australian columnist, Andrew Bolt, had to say about her.

    "No teenager is more freakishly influential than Thunberg, the deeply disturbed messiah of the global warming movement," he wrote. "I have never seen a girl so young and with so many mental disorders treated by so many adults as a guru."

    Not done calling her a freak and disturbed, Bolt invoked Thunberg's reported past eating disorder, emotional and psychological struggles and autism as a cudgel against her.

    I defer to psychologists to discern the pathology that would prompt such viciousness. But Bolt's fear of the Thunberg phenomenon is plain. She is prevailing. He is losing. She is being heard, while he shouts obscenities. She grows more relevant by the day, while he slips further into irrelevancy and hysteria.

    When the predictable character assassination of a teenager gambit fails, it's time to raise "questions" about who or what powerful forces may be acting as Svengalis exploiting a vulnerable, damaged "child" for their parochial aims and possible profit.

    "Is Thunberg a green prophet or a schoolgirl puppet controlled by more sinister forces behind her?" the always temperate London-based The Sun newspaper asked, rhetorically.

    Using innuendo and recycled drivel, The Sun claimed a "naive" Thunberg was being manipulated by her "fame-hungry" mother and "energy giants".

    Like the paper itself, it is all empty conjecture designed to undermine Thunberg's legitimacy and authenticity and her just cause. It will not work because, clearly, she is no one's marionette.

    The irrational, absurd assaults on Thunberg's personality and motives aren't the exclusive preserve of the rancid tabloid press.

    Indeed, The New York Times newspaper permitted one journalist, Christopher Caldwell, to argue that Thunberg's appeals for immediate action are, incredibly, "in conflict with democracy".

    "Ms Thunberg believes that we should act, not argue," Caldwell wrote in his missive, oozing with condescension about her lack of life experience, "crude language", "unrealistic" world view, and "out of balance" priorities.

    While simultaneously acknowledging that the "authorities" agree with Thunberg that the climate crisis constitutes an "emergency", Caldwell claims that the youthful Swede is only interested in "sowing panic" and "simplification".

    His cockeyed prescription: more patience. "Democracy calls for waiting and seeing."

    [Thunberg] is the personification of the democratic impulse, not the antithesis of it.
    This is climate change denialism with the patina of gravitas.

    Thunberg, like the overwhelming scientific consensus she is intimately familiar with, is loud and clear on this urgent imperative: The time for waiting and seeing was over long ago.

    Patience, in this pressing context, is not a virtue, it is an abdication of responsibility.

    Thunberg has deployed every democratic tool at her imaginative disposal to make this salient point again and again. She is the personification of the democratic impulse, not the antithesis of it.

    So, I join millions of other global citizens who have been humbled, inspired and stirred by Thunberg's steely steadfastness in the face of the often-repellent locusts who come to bury her, not to praise her.

    Here's looking at you, kid.

  • 'Sociopathic Disregard for Our Future': Trump EPA Set to Gut Restrictions on Planet-Warming Methane Emissions
    https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/08/29/sociopathic-disregard-our-future-trump-epa-set-gut-restrictions-planet-warming
    Jake Johnson, staff writer

    Amid dire scientific warnings that the international community must act immediately to slash greenhouse gas emissions, President Donald Trump's Environmental Protection Agency is reportedly set to take another step in the opposite direction Thursday by unveiling a rule that would gut restrictions on the fossil fuel industry's methane pollution.

    According to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the proposed rule change Thursday, the EPA's plan would scrap regulations requiring the oil and gas industry to "install technologies that monitor and limit leaks from new wells, tanks and pipeline networks and to more frequently inspect for leaks."

    "It would also forestall legal requirements that would have forced the EPA to set rules on emissions from thousands of pre-existing wells and industry sites," the Journal reported.

    Environmentalists reacted with outrage to the new proposal. "This administration is ultimately driven by sociopathic disregard for our future," said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch.

    Earthworks policy director Lauren Pagel called the rule "reckless" and said it will "impact millions of families living with oil and gas air pollution in their backyards."

    "President Trump once again signaled his ignorance towards the science of climate crisis and his indifference towards public health," said Pagel.

    The Trump administration expects the rule, which must go through a 60-day public comment period, to take effect early next year. The rollback was immediately praised by the American Petroleum Institute, a major trade group representing the fossil fuel industry.

    Because of methane's potency—some estimates suggest the greenhouse gas has more than 80 times the warming power of carbon dioxide—environmentalists and scientists have warned the Trump administration's efforts to gut methane regulations could have disastrous consequences.

    "This is extraordinarily harmful," Rachel Kyte, United Nations special representative on sustainable energy, said of the Trump administration's proposed rule change. "Just at a time when the federal government's job should be to help localities and states move faster toward cleaner energy and a cleaner economy, just at that moment when speed and scale is what's at stake, the government is walking off the field."

    Trump administration officials, and the president himself, have gleefully touted the White House's success in ramping up American production of methane-emitting natural gas, which Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy Steven Winberg infamously described as "molecules of U.S. freedom."

    During the G20 summit in Japan in June, Trump said he is "not willing" to take action to curb greenhouse gas emissions because such a move would harm corporate profits.

    A report published earlier this year by Oil Change International in collaboration with over a dozen other environmental groups warned that U.S. fossil fuel production has the potential to single-handedly imperil global efforts to combat the climate crisis.

    "Right now, we're on a sinking boat, and instead of just scooping water out, we must take immediate action to patch the hole where it's gushing in," said Patrick McCully of the Rainforest Action Network. "This means we must put a full-stop to fossil fuel expansion, or we all sink into climate chaos."
    'Sociopathic Disregard for Our Future': Trump EPA Set to Gut Restrictions on Planet-Warming Methane Emissions https://www.commondreams.org/news/2019/08/29/sociopathic-disregard-our-future-trump-epa-set-gut-restrictions-planet-warming Jake Johnson, staff writer Amid dire scientific warnings that the international community must act immediately to slash greenhouse gas emissions, President Donald Trump's Environmental Protection Agency is reportedly set to take another step in the opposite direction Thursday by unveiling a rule that would gut restrictions on the fossil fuel industry's methane pollution. According to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the proposed rule change Thursday, the EPA's plan would scrap regulations requiring the oil and gas industry to "install technologies that monitor and limit leaks from new wells, tanks and pipeline networks and to more frequently inspect for leaks." "It would also forestall legal requirements that would have forced the EPA to set rules on emissions from thousands of pre-existing wells and industry sites," the Journal reported. Environmentalists reacted with outrage to the new proposal. "This administration is ultimately driven by sociopathic disregard for our future," said Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch. Earthworks policy director Lauren Pagel called the rule "reckless" and said it will "impact millions of families living with oil and gas air pollution in their backyards." "President Trump once again signaled his ignorance towards the science of climate crisis and his indifference towards public health," said Pagel. The Trump administration expects the rule, which must go through a 60-day public comment period, to take effect early next year. The rollback was immediately praised by the American Petroleum Institute, a major trade group representing the fossil fuel industry. Because of methane's potency—some estimates suggest the greenhouse gas has more than 80 times the warming power of carbon dioxide—environmentalists and scientists have warned the Trump administration's efforts to gut methane regulations could have disastrous consequences. "This is extraordinarily harmful," Rachel Kyte, United Nations special representative on sustainable energy, said of the Trump administration's proposed rule change. "Just at a time when the federal government's job should be to help localities and states move faster toward cleaner energy and a cleaner economy, just at that moment when speed and scale is what's at stake, the government is walking off the field." Trump administration officials, and the president himself, have gleefully touted the White House's success in ramping up American production of methane-emitting natural gas, which Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy Steven Winberg infamously described as "molecules of U.S. freedom." During the G20 summit in Japan in June, Trump said he is "not willing" to take action to curb greenhouse gas emissions because such a move would harm corporate profits. A report published earlier this year by Oil Change International in collaboration with over a dozen other environmental groups warned that U.S. fossil fuel production has the potential to single-handedly imperil global efforts to combat the climate crisis. "Right now, we're on a sinking boat, and instead of just scooping water out, we must take immediate action to patch the hole where it's gushing in," said Patrick McCully of the Rainforest Action Network. "This means we must put a full-stop to fossil fuel expansion, or we all sink into climate chaos."

    It is NOT TRUE that the greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he did not exist – he has been announcing his war for almost 100 years!...
