The Guardian changes their language regarding global warming

As the left has been doing for years, when not content with facts regarding the hysteria of global warming, change the language to scare the masses.

The Guardian (a very, very left-leaning British newspaper) announced last week that they are changing the language they use about the environment. Their intention is to “more accurately describe the environmental crises facing the world.”

From their announcement:

“Instead of “climate change” the preferred terms are “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” and “global heating” is favoured over “global warming”, although the original terms are not banned.

“We want to ensure that we are being scientifically precise, while also communicating clearly with readers on this very important issue,” said the editor-in-chief, Katharine Viner. “The phrase ‘climate change’, for example, sounds rather passive and gentle when what scientists are talking about is a catastrophe for humanity.”

Other terms that have been updated, including the use of “wildlife” rather than “biodiversity”, “fish populations” instead of “fish stocks” and “climate science denier” rather than “climate sceptic”. In September, the BBC accepted it gets coverage of climate change “wrong too often” and told staff: “You do not need a ‘denier’ to balance the debate.”

Earlier in May, Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager who has inspired school strikes for climate around the globe, said: “It’s 2019. Can we all now call it what it is: climate breakdown, climate crisis, climate emergency, ecological breakdown, ecological crisis and ecological emergency?”

US women’s soccer star won’t sing national anthem again as an “F you to Trump”

Butthurt is not an attractive look…

From Daily Mail: Women’s soccer star Megan Rapinoe has revealed she will probably never sing or honor the national anthem again. Rapinoe proudly sang ‘Born in the USA’ into a microphone after scoring a decisive point in a 3-0 win vs. Colombia during a FIFA World Cup qualifying match in 2011.

Over the span of eight years, however, the outspoken athlete, part of the beloved 2015 women’s World Cup-winning team, has gone from patriotic national champion to US cultural critic, becoming as famous for her activism on and off the field as she is for her electrifying play and once-plentiful charismatic displays of love for her country.

The Redding, California native and American poster girl recently became the first openly-gay woman to pose for the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and she’s set to help the US women’s team compete for another FIFA World Cup trophy this summer with a qualifying match against Thailand scheduled for June 11.

In a lengthy interview with Yahoo Sports, Rapinoe explains why she most likely won’t be singing or honoring the Star Spangled Banner the way she has in the past, not this summer, or anytime in the foreseeable future.

‘I’ll probably never put my hand over my heart. ‘I’ll probably never sing the national anthem again,’ she definitively stated during an interview published Monday.

‘I feel like it’s kind of defiance in and of itself to just be who I am and wear the jersey, and represent it. Because I’m as talented as I am, I get to be here, you don’t get to tell me if I can be here or not.’

She continued: ‘It’s kind of a good ‘F you’ to any sort of inequality or bad sentiments that the [Trump] administration might have towards people who don’t look exactly like him. Which, God help us if we all looked like him. Scary. Really scary. Ahh, disturbing.’

Rapinoe hasn’t turned her back on her country. She seems to feel it’s many from her country who have turned their backs on folks like her and others from marginalized groups.

In 2016, she took a knee during a pre-game National Anthem performance in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who used the gesture as a means of silent protest against racism and police brutality after a string of high-profile fatal shootings of black Americans by law enforcement officers.

‘I know what it means to look at the flag and not have it protect all of your liberties,’ Rapinoe told reporters at the time.

Actress calls her abortion, “the best decision I have ever made”

I’ve never heard of this actress, Jameela Jamil. She’s a Brit who moved to the US to pursue her acting career. She’s also unaware of the definition of “inhumane.”

From Yahoo: Jameela Jamil disclosed she had an abortion after last week’s signing of a controversial six-week abortion ban in Georgia.

“I had an abortion when I was young, and it was the best decision I have ever made,” Jamil wrote on Twitter. “Both for me, and for the baby I didn’t want, and wasn’t ready for, emotionally, psychologically and financially. So many children will end up in foster homes. So many lives ruined. So very cruel,” she said of the ban.

Inhumane and cruel partial birth abortion

Signed last week by Georgia Governor Brian Kemp, the so-called “heartbeat bill” outlaws abortion after six weeks of pregnancy. That’s usually when doctors can start to detect a fetal heartbeat, but it’s also before many women realize they are pregnant.

This anti-abortion law in Georgia is so upsetting, inhumane, and blatantly demonstrative of a hatred of women, a disregard for our rights, bodies, mental health, and essentially a punishment for rape victims, forcing to carry the baby of their rapist,” wrote Jamil.

The actress, 33, also clarified that she was not criticizing foster care.

“Ps.. this isn’t any diss at ALL to foster homes. I’m in awe of people who take in children in need of a family and a home: but if Georgia becomes inundated with children who are unwanted or unable to be cared for, it will be hard to find great fostering for them all.”

Kamala Harris vows to take executive action on gun control if elected

Fortunately this womyn has a slim chance of taking the lead of the demorat presidential candidates.

From NY Post: Sen. Kamala Harris pledged Sunday that she will pursue executive action on gun control measures if Congress fails to act in the first 100 days of her presidential administration.

“I’m proposing, one, that if by my 100th day in office when elected president of the United States, if the United States Congress fails to put a bill on my desk … then I’m prepared to take executive action because that’s what’s needed: action,” Harris, a California Democrat and 2020 hopeful, said in an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper.

Harris had first articulated the plan at a CNN town hall in late April, but bought it up again Sunday on the heels of yet another school shooting, in which 18-year-old Kendrick Castillo was killed after rushing the gunman to save his classmates.

“We are not waiting on tragedies and we are not waiting on good ideas,” Harris said, pointing to the “heroism of a child who we now mourn his loss, his parents’ only child.”

When asked how she liked Sen. Cory Booker’s (D-N.J.) proposal for a federal gun registry she answered, “I like the idea. But, Jake, I’m going to tell you, on the issue of the need for gun safety laws, we’re not at any loss for good ideas. People have been having good ideas for decades on this issue.”

Booker is also vying for the White House.

Harris said that the country was waiting for Congress to act. If she was forced to take executive action, Harris said she would require those who sell more than five guns a year to do background checks. She would also have the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives take away licenses from gun dealers that don’t follow the law.

Harris also expressed support for government intervention in dealing with Facebook. Co-founder Chris Hughes said Thursday that the social network should be broken up.

Asked by Tapper if she agreed with Hughes, Harris answered, “yes, I think we have to seriously take a look at that, yes.”

“I mean, when you look at the issue, they’re essentially a utility. Like, there are very few people that can actually get by and be involved in their communities or society or in whatever their profession without somehow, somewhere using Facebook,” Harris said. “It’s very difficult for people to be engaged in any level of commerce without – so, we have to recognize it for what it is. It is essentially a utility that has gone unregulated. And as far as I’m concerned, that’s got to stop.”

Over the course of the interview, Harris also tried to clean up comments she made to Tapper in January when she said she wanted to do away with private health insurance. Harris explained that while she supported Medicare-for-all “it doesn’t get rid of all insurance.” “It was in the context of saying, let’s get rid of all the bureaucracy. Let’s get rid of all the waste,” she said of her previous remark.

Harris said the Medicare-for-all bill she supports “doesn’t get rid of supplemental insurance.”

The legislation also entitles all residents of the United States to health care services.

Tapper asked if this meant Harris supported giving health care to illegal immigrants. “Let me just be very clear about this. I’m opposed to any policy that would deny in our country any human being from access to public safety, public education or public health, period,” Harris answered.

Rapper Drake purchases massive private jet despite rapping about dangers of climate change

No doubt Leo is hoping to catch a ride on that private plane one day…

From Daily Mail: Drake now owns a massive Boeing 767 cargo plane – despite once rapping about the dangers of climate change on the polar ice caps.

The ‘Trophies’ rapper unveiled his new possession on Instagram Friday and the aircraft features his OVO owl symbol, along with the moniker ‘Air Drake.’

OVO stands for Drake’s company – October’s Very Own – and for his record label OVO sound.

The 32-year-old Grammy winner took viewers on a quick tour of the plane’s interior. Inside the plane are luxury gold and brown sofas adorned with gold walls. ‘No rental, no timeshare, no co-owners,’ he proudly boasts as he shows off his new plane.

In the clip, Drake also pays homage to CargoJet’s President and CEO Ajay Virmani. He stated: ‘That guy made it happen right there, that’s the man.’

The unveiling of the plane comes after news broke that Drake had partnered with the Canadian company.

‘We are very excited to partner with Drake as our ambassador and assisting him with his logistical needs and requirements,’ Virmani said in the statement. ‘We have had a lengthy relationship with Drake and this partnership has grown organically between both parties. Cargojet and Drake are both great Canadian successes, we are thrilled to be partnering together.’

Airways magazine puts the massive plane at approximately $185million – and that is without the customization.

But the new plane does seem to go against a brief moment when the rapper appeared to warn on the dangers of climate change.

In his song ‘Heat of the Moment’ he makes reference to climate change and specifically the melting of the ice cap. ‘And all the cops are still hangin’ out at the doughnut shops,’ he says in the song. ‘Talkin’ ’bout how the weather’s changin. The ice is meltin’ as if the world is endin.’

While the song is about his relationship with a woman, it is clear he was thinking about the impending chaos that would come with climate change.

Now it seems he’s aiding in the process.

———————

Back in 2014, “Kill Your Darlings” described Drake’s “Heat of the Moment” ballad as such:

He uses the song as a platform to rail against climate change and examine his own complicity in the ongoing degradation of the natural world.

He enters a state of existential reflection, with a realisation of his impeding mortality: what will be the intrinsic value of his music, if the ice caps melt and the world is no longer sustainable? Or perhaps more pertinently, he realises that with his stadium-sized cultural standing, and ability to impact on the world at large, he is in an undeniable position of power to enact meaningful change and ensure the survival of the planet’s ecosystem – a network nearly as complicated, beautiful, and wonderfully diverse as Drake himself.

The ‘strap’ (condom) that Drake doesn’t have on him is a poignant metaphor for his hitherto unprotected involvement with the neoliberal capitalist structures that enable his multi-million dollar success as a recording artist. He has engaged with these structures without giving any thought to the potential consequences if he proceeds with his irresponsible lifestyle of shallow pleasures. The reference to the ‘last man’ leaving his girl behind, and him picking ‘it’ up, is a sly post-imperialist nod to the ways in which the Baby Boomer generation have acted without care toward our planet, and an acknowledgement that Drake’s generation, which has perhaps previously been reluctant to assume this responsibility, must now do so.”

Read the rest here where they state, Drake has bought himself a Prius – he’s ‘riding clean’ – and yet, in this confession he makes directly to God, he is still thinking about his many luxurious gas-guzzling mistresses – ‘but I’m thinking dirty things, yes Lord, yes Lord’.

Presidential candidate Cory Booker proposes national gun license for all gun owners

How is Spartacus going to ensure that criminals comply with this fantasy?

From Yahoo: Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker is proposing that all gun owners be licensed by the federal government, a process that would include an interview and safety training.

National licensing is one of more than a dozen specific proposals in a sweeping gun control agenda the U.S. senator from New Jersey released on Monday. It’s his second policy rollout in three weeks as he tries to break through the crowded Democratic primary field .

While current gun owners and first-time buyers would be subject to the federal license requirement, a transition period would allow current owners to come into compliance, the Booker campaign said.

No such national gun license program currently exists. Thirteen states and the District of Columbia have enacted some form of licensing or permit rules before people can buy guns, according to the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence.

“I am sick and tired of hearing thoughts and prayers for the communities that have been shattered by gun violence — it is time for bold action,” Booker said in a statement.

Last month during a high-profile speech in his hometown of Newark, Booker vowed to “bring a fight” to the National Rifle Association, which generally opposes gun restrictions.

Booker, a former mayor of Newark, New Jersey’s largest city, said gun violence is an issue close to him, with several people being shot in his neighborhood recently.”We must step up and deal with something that is crushing communities, destroying lives and really just tearing apart families,” Booker said in an interview on CBS’ “CBS This Morning.”

Booker’s gun control agenda includes universal background checks for gun buyers; the reinstitution of a ban on assault weapons and high-capacity firearm magazines; and the modernization of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The plan would face a steep climb to winning approval from a Democratic House and would face even stiffer resistance in a Republican-controlled Senate, where less-sweeping gun control measures have failed in recent years.

President Donald Trump has said the constitutional right to bear arms is “under assault.” Trump, a Republican, spoke at the NRA’s annual convention last month, vowing to fight for gun rights and imploring NRA members to rally behind his reelection bid.

Booker, who launched his presidential campaign in February, has struggled to rise from the low single digits in polls of the 21-candidate Democratic primary field, though he recently secured the 65,000 donors necessary to meet both qualifications for participation in next month’s first debate .

Ruh roh: Ticket prices plunge for Bill & Hillary’s speaking tour

Guess folk are tired of hearing who Hillary is still blaming for her loss…

From NY Post: Tickets to the latest stop on Bill and Hillary Clinton’s speaking tour were going for as little as $20 on the secondary market as their 13-city adventure continued to struggle to find an audience.

The best seats in the house at Seattle’s WaMu Theater on Friday could be had for $829, a steep 54% drop from the $1,785 that the former first couple fetched when the tour was announced in early November.

But organizers soon had to slash listed prices and even offer discount ducats through Groupon to boost sales.

The official prices for Friday’s appearance ranged from $66.50 to $519, the Seattle Times reported.

“I really believe that we are in a crisis, a constitutional crisis,” Hillary Clinton opined during the 90-minute performance, presented as an interview of her and her husband by actor Bradley Whitford. “This is a test for our country.”

“These people, they don’t believe the same set of rules apply to them that apply to everyone else,” Bill Clinton said of the Trump administration.

Anarchists leak water hose into office of Portland lawyer who represents ICE employees

Damage to law office caused by anarchists

The “tolerant” left strike again.

As reported by Oregon Live:

Sometime over the weekend, anonymous vandals stuck a garden hose through the front-door mail slot of lawyer Sean Riddell’s Northeast Portland office and left the water running. Someone who works in the office — a house converted into business space — discovered the mess about 2:30 p.m. Sunday.

Riddell and lawyer Christine Mascal, who run separate legal practices under the same roof, wondered if someone targeted one of them because of a case or whether it was a random vandal, Riddell said.

On Monday, Riddell apparently got an answer — in the form of an email forwarded to him from a Willamette Week reporter who said she received it earlier that day. The email, signed “some anarchists,” claims responsibility and says the authors hoped to “cause maximum economic damage” to Riddell because he provides legal representation to the National ICE Council, the union for local employees of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

“For every child that is separated from their parents and locked in a cage, there are people making money off it,” reads the email, posted in a Willamette Week story.

Riddell called police Sunday after the initial discovery. If caught, the vandal or vandals could face felony charges of first-degree criminal mischief or second-degree burglary for entering the space of his office through the mail slot, which had been painted shut.

Riddell said his law office has video surveillance cameras and so do area businesses. He called police again Monday and let them know he was forwarding along the email claiming responsibility. The email also was posted anonymously Monday morning to an anarchist website.

On Tuesday, industrial-strength fans were blowing across the warped wooden floors of the law office and some of the still-soggy carpet in the basement, where the water had poured through floor vents from the first-floor office. Workers were tearing up the carpet before it could turn moldy.

Riddell said insurance will likely pay for the damage.

He noted that the people unhappy with him weren’t willing to stand up for what they believe in by identifying themselves. “I have the courage of my convictions,” Riddell said. “I put my name on what I do.”

You go first: Alec Baldwin says Americans must make certain sacrifices to save the planet from climate change

Want to know what kind of sacrifices Alec makes?

Alec has five children.

Alec has a NYC apartment (comprised of three units) which has two master bedroom suites and takes up the 12th floor of a building.

Alec’s “sacrifice” in the Hamptons…

Alec has a HUGE mansion in the Hamptons.

Back in 2011, Alec was paid to promote airline travel/miles via the “Match My Miles” program for Capital One. The deal: Open a Capital One Venture Card and consumers had the opportunity to match up to 100,000 miles they currently have (had) in an airline credit card rewards program.

Sacrifices for thee but not for me.

From Daily Mail: Alec Baldwin was speaking at a UN panel in NYC on the subject of threats to forest defenders during an annual meeting on Tuesday.

The 61-year-old star opened up about his passion for preserving the planet and called for the public to make ‘certain sacrifices.’

‘I recognize – as does anyone that is paying attention that Indigenous Peoples across this planet are on the front lines of the fight to protect forests and deserve and need the support and protection of the international community,” he said.

The SNL star added that his sole love for the planet wasn’t enough, with the rest of the United States needing to get on board in order to stop the ‘enslavement of Indigenous People.’

‘I’m an American, and I love my country. I’m very proud of my country but I also recognize that the United States is built on a core of building blocks and those are: political resources; friendly and manageable borders; hard work; innovation; ingenuity, but also slavery and the enslavement of Indigenous Peoples.’

Alec called for the public to make ‘certain sacrifices’ if we want to see the planet thrive and help combat climate change.

He also insisted that he loves the UN because of its ‘permanent missions’ to make the world a better place.

‘There are things that we just can’t imagine that can happen in terms of the food supply, in terms of climate change, in terms of flooding in coastal areas in the United States and beyond. The time is now to make certain sacrifices … so that this planet will remain habitable for today’s children,’ he preached.

‘My favorite thing about the UN is the word “permanence”, they have permanent missions and permanent forums. They’re the only ones who can say, “We’re here and we’re not going anywhere.” And I love the inevitability of that.’
