Re: “PHOTOS: Charleston protesters speak out against Sessions firing, "No one is above the law"

It's like McCain and Comey and Romney. If they appear to be troublesome to Trump, they are heroes (even though the left also previous hated them) because leftists have one and only one agenda: FUCK TRUMP

If Sarah Palin criticized Trump they would laud her.

I did not realize Jeff Sessions had so many admirers on the left or that so many Americans don't understand how presidential appointments work.

Re: “Charleston protesters will stand against firing of Jeff Sessions in Marion Square on Thursday at 5 p.m.

The left has become the 1930's brown shirts of the Nazi Party. When will these unhinged loonies try their own Night of the Long Knives? It's funny because this garbage is pumped up by places like the CCCP, the national media, TV, movies, anywhere you look basically. But, if you look at the entire world, their is a direct movement by all countries to the more conservative right. Western Europe is beginning to reap the rewards of leftist policies, and it is being revoked. The US is at the peak of this movement or very close, soon you will see a downturn in this nonsense. More moderate Democrats are being elected and hopefully the extreme left Progressives in politics will be eaten by their own. Extreme religious conservatives during the Bush Presidency was not a good thing, that's not true conservatism. And the extreme left is not a good thing for Demorats, it is not true liberalism. Guys like Cunningham seem like a good start, but these crazies gotta go.

Re: “The Agenda: Clyburn says he'll run for majority whip; BMW shifting some X3 production to China after tariffs

This report dating back to 2010, before Trump, explains how China was ripping off American manufacturers and exporters long before Trump ever showed up on the scene. Trump is in negotiations to fix this because Obama never had the fortitude or negotiating capability to do so.

China's multiple barriers to American products (Published in 2010)

"China still maintains high duties on some products that compete with sensitive domestic industries. For example, the tariff on large motorcycles is 30 percent. Likewise, most video, digital video, and audio recorders and players still face duties of approximately 30 percent. Raisins face duties of 35 percent."

"The report briefly mentions China's most recent escalation, its November requirement that American corporations move their R&D and patents to China"

Under Hussein Obama, American companies are required to forfeit their research development, and intellectual property rights and patents to China. Obama was letting the Chinese government practice mercantilism, the strategy of maximizing exports and minimizing imports.

Six years before Trump began politics, economists were calling for the U.S. government to impose equal tariffs on China to set in motion a renegotiation of trade terms:

"It's time to impose a tariff on Chinese goods proportional to our trade deficit with China. Such a tariff, permitted by a special WTO rule for trade-deficit countries, would finally force the Chinese government be take down its many, many barriers to American goods and services." -Howard Richman, 4/1/2010

President Trump is doing the job DemoKrats should have done back in 2010 when they had the White House and majorities in both the Senate and House. But DemoKrats were too busy increasing the healthcare insurance costs for over 100 million Americans so that they could give free healthcare insurance to just a few million, most of whom were already eligible for medicaid beforehand.

Clyburn is responsible for laundering millions of dollars which were misused at South Carolina State University. That money was never recovered. Instead, the University hired a corrupt DemoKrat from Chicago (Thomas Elzey) who was almost as corrupt as Clyburn himself, further hurt the South Carolina State University's finances and left the University begging Governor Nikki Haley for a bailout from the taxpayers. DemoKrats like bailouts. DemoKrats bailed out the DemoKrat city of Detroit with $300 million in tax subsidized aid in 2013.

Re: “Ignore climate change or don't, but you're still paying for it

Who is Rouzy Vafaie anyways? A Republican? Sorry, but Iranians don't have much of a track record for being strong believers in Individualism, free market, freedom and liberty, individual rights, being created equal, etc. Perhaps you are a contrarian? I wonder if you or your relatives or friends aren't in on the climate change hustle. Perhaps your experience in the insurance industry means you stand to gain from insuring against hysterical fears about climate change. Convince more people that hurricanes and floods are going to wipe them out so that they increase their coverages? Rouzy Vafaie is also involved in politics. So he might just be another politician with his greasy fingers in on the tax funds laundered to these schemes. Perhaps he wishes for FEMA to get greater funding so that his insurance company is better covered and subsidized by Federal tax dollars.

Consider the source people. He makes no scientific, convincing claims in this sloppily written article. It's emotional, politically motivated garbage void of facts, data, studies, or anything meaningful that should compel you to want to pay more of your hard earned income to these politicians or warrant them to confiscate other people's earned income which DemoKrat voters so often love to do.

He claims he's a Republican, but calls other Republicans "climate hoaxers." Yet the best evidence we have of hoaxes are from Climate Change proponents who accidentally got their e-mails leaked like Hillary Clinton and John Podesta. It always sux to get caught with your hand in the cookie jar, doesn't it?

Several things in his article are wrong.

"Hurricane Florence missed us, but even as a tropical storm, still caused mass evacuations (expensive), closed schools and businesses (expensive), and led to scores of casualties."

Hurricane Florence did not cause mass evacuations. Your government did. Government schools closed. Your government made it expensive. Your government told you to evacuate an entire week before we received a mere rainstorm. Heck, it was a beautiful sunny day the day they claimed it would hit Charleston. I took my children to the park! Most (not all) of the people who die in these storms do stupid things like drive cars through storm surges or try to walk through storm surges or go surfing during dangerous currents. Most of those deaths could have been avoided with sensible preparation, caution, and Darwinian logic and good instinct.

"you're already paying for climate change, but not in the way that helps the economy or sparks innovation"

Yes. We already pay billions in taxes that go towards the hustle in the forms of grants and foreign aid and contributions to foreign causes. Also, Obama used the scheme to reward his campaign supporters in 2009 to the tune of many billions of dollars for a long list of now bankrupt companies that never produced anything beneficial to the economy nor anything innovative. The current government spending does not help the economy or spark innovation.

"This Republican has had enough."

Oh really? Go retrieve the $1.7 billion Hussein Obama dropped off on a pallet in Iran and put it towards your global warming, oops, I mean "climate change" hoax. I'm sure none of that money made it to any of Iranian Valerie Jarrett's communist family members and friends in Iran....nahhhh Obama and Jarrett are too honest for that! (FBI Files Document Communism in Valerie Jarretts Family…)

"Left unaddressed, climate change is likely to fuel more storms that ravage our coastline, raise our sea levels, and flood our lowlands."

LOL. Seriously? So if I pay you more of my hard earned income, you're going to personally stop the seas from rising and stop the hurricanes dead in their tracks? The seas will be calm all year round? The sun will shine more often? What? You're going to build a magical weather machine? Listen to what you are promising. It's a lot of "hot air"!!!

"Conservatives like me believe in protecting the environment through free markets and deregulation, which in turn creates competition."

No, you don't. You are suggesting a coercive government imposed carbon tax which is the antithesis of free markets and individualism and free will. You aren't a Conservative, so stop pretending. Let people conserve their own earned income and apply it as they wish. If you believe in free markets, then you'd suggest that all your fellow believers voluntarily donate to the cause rather than be coerced at gunpoint by the IRS under threat of seizure of our assets and jail time.

Re: “Ignore climate change or don't, but you're still paying for it

We didn't always have satellites to detect storms that never hit shores. There's so many inconsistencies in how we collect data over many decades that it is silly to claim this is "settled science." As I explained above, there's 1,500,000,000,000 reasons why someone might lie and exxagerate climate change or pretend mankind has significant impact or ability to change it.

"However, when adjusted with an estimate of storms that stayed at sea and were likely missed in the pre-satellite era, there is no longer any significant increase in Atlantic hurricanes since the late 1800s (red curve). "…

More proof of inconsistencies:

"Stations have moved to different locations over the past 150 years, most more than once. They have changed instruments from mercury thermometers to electronic sensors, and have changed the time they take temperature measurements from afternoon to morning. Cities have grown up around stations, and some weather stations are not ideally located. All of these issues introduce inconsistencies into the temperature record." (Source…)

Why have DemoKrats abandoned the scientific method, inserted bias into their studies, and use inconsistent methods of obtaining data and then try to pass it off as science when it is sloppy pseudo-science?

Here's other realities DemoKrats don't want to acknowledge:

"Natural disasters are claiming fewer lives. Data tracked by 'Our World in Data' shows that from 2007-17, an average of 7,000 people each year were killed by natural disasters. In the decade 50 years earlier, the annual figure was more than 37,000. Fewer people die from natural disasters than 50 years ago.

The material cost of disasters also has decreased when considered as a proportion of the global economy. The decrease in disaster damage isnt a surprise, because as the world population and economy have grown, the incidence of the most damaging extreme events has hardly changed.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reported in 2014 that there has been no increase in hurricanes, floods, droughts or tornadoes within the past 30 years." (Source SEPTEMBER 17, 2018 DEBBIE YOUNG)

American taxpayers already pay over $1 billion per year to international environmental protection causes. (Source . That's up from $182M in 2003. We've already significantly increased the amount of public funds we put towards protecting the environment, but the plutocrat DemoKrat hustler politicians and their robber baron lobbyists always want more more more more more. They are greedy. Get private funding from all the rich Hollywood liberals who pretend to care so much. Make them put their money where their big mouths are since they attempt to remind all us "deplorables" how much better they are than all of us.

The Journal of Hydrology analyzed North Atlantic tropical cyclones (TCs) and their contribution to flooding and rainfall across the US and concluded "we do not detect statistically significant trends in the magnitude or frequency of TC floods."

Leading Univ. of Alabama climate scientist Dr. Roy Spencer explained that "Coastal lake sediments along the Gulf of Mexico shoreline from 1,000 to 2,000 years ago suggest more frequent and intense hurricanes than occur today."

So according to analysis of sediments from thousands of years ago, there were many more and more intense hurricanes long before the beginning of the industrial revolution. There were also at least six known ice ages before the industrial revolution. DemoKrats deny science.

Corrupt DemoKrat politicians and their Robber Baron lobbyists who want their hands in on the $1.5 Trillion global warming hustle pretend like ClimateGate 1.0 and ClimateGate 2.0 never happened. leaked emails from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit revealed that the pseudo-scientist political operatives were withholding data that didn't support their climate change hysteria hoax and that they were doctoring data. (Sources ClimateGate 2.0 happened in 2011, following the original scandal of released e-mails in 2009, and revealed: "(1) prominent scientists central to the global warming debate are taking measures to conceal rather than disseminate underlying data and discussions; (2) these scientists view global warming as a political cause rather than a balanced scientific inquiry and (3) many of these scientists frankly admit to each other that much of the science is weak and dependent on deliberate manipulation of facts and data." (source: James Taylor of the Spark of Freedom Foundation).

Stop being so gullible people. Al Gore is a bad politician, not a scientist. The dumb pundits on CNN don't know anything about meteorology or geology and don't know much about anything else either other than how to powder their faces with make-up and read teleprompters and repeat what AP or Reuters tell them to say.

Be a critical thinker. Be professionally skeptical. Don't believe what anyone else tells you because, with $1.5 trillion at stake, they have ulterior motives.

No. You may not increase my taxes for your climate change hoax. Any carbon tax on businesses will increase the prices of products and services we buy and increase the cost of living for American citizens. You DemoKrats have no track record of spending the money responsibly (See fake green energy companies bankrupt above) and have a track record of lying and peddling the money to your lobbyist friends who help you get elected. They setup cardboard fake companies, pay themselves huge salaries until the money dries up, then file bankruptcy and keep their huge earnings. It is money laundering!!! You are crooks and deceitful liars.
