Only a few days after the Obama administration released new dietary guidelines centered around a sustainable diet, The Guardian reports that during a speech to medical staff Prince Charles parroted the Obama administration by saying that people must eat a healthier diet in order to save the “sick”  planet from Climate Change:

“The Prince of Wales has compared the planet to a “sick patient,” warning it could face its “death certificate” at the hands of climate change.

“Speaking to health experts at the Royal Society in London on Wednesday, Charles said: “We can only pray that our sick planetary patient might be placed on a road to recovery, in the process bringing gains for human well-being.

“Failure to write the prescription, however, might leave us contemplating the death certificate instead.

“So, my fervent hope is that you can find the means to make the difference that our world so desperately needs.”

“Actions which are good for the planet are also good for human health.

“Taking a more active approach to transport by walking and cycling and adopting healthy diets reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also reduce rates of obesity, heart disease, cancer and more, saving lives and money.

“Reductions in air pollution also result – with separate and additional benefits to human health. A healthy planet and healthy people are two sides of the same coin.”

Goldman CEO: “There Is No Place For Pure, Unregulated Capitalism; We Have To Do A Better Job Distributing Wealth”

In 2008 Goldman Sachs was the corporation behind the most funding of Obama’s presidential run. But four years later, after realizing they helped to elect an anti-business President, they drastically jumped sides and funded Romney in an unsuccessful bid to unseat Obama.

Now realizing that the hopes of an unfettered economy may have gone to the wayside, during an interview with CNN, Goldman CEO, Lloyd Blankfein says that there is no place left for unregulated capitalism:

“China’s economy may be slowing down from its breakneck pace of recent decades, but it’s still running far ahead of free markets like the U.S.

So does China’s rapid growth call into question the hands-down success of capitalism?

The U.S. is not pure capitalism,” Goldman Sachs (GS) CEO Lloyd Blankfein told CNN’s Poppy Harlow. “In fact, there’s no place for pure capitalism, unregulated capitalism. We have a regulated system.”

Blankfein, arguably the most powerful man on staunchly free market Wall Street, said that “at the end of the day, everything is going to be a hybrid.”In an even more disturbing chain of events Mr. Blankfein even goes on to claim that in order to fight income inequality we need to do a better job to “distribute” the wealth:

In an even more disturbing chain of events Mr. Blankfein goes on to claim that in order to fight income inequality we need to do a better job of  “distributing” the wealth. How? By making the government do something about it:

“..He said inequality isn’t necessarily being caused by the affluent. Instead, Goldman’s CEO said the gap between the rich and the poor has been driven by “the rise of technology” and the “winner take all market.”

“In one sign of growing inequality, a recent Urban Institute report shows whites now have 12 times the wealth of blacks and nearly 10 times more than Hispanics. That’s up from seven times for blacks and six times for Hispanics in 1995.

“We have to do a better job” of distributing wealth, he said. “Everybody has to join in.”

“So what does the Goldman chief say needs to be done to fight inequality?

“He said the government needs to invest more on training, education and housing to ensure everyone has free or cheap access.

“If you don’t have it, you lose access to the escalator that could take you up and through the middle class and higher,” Blankfein said.”

“It’s All About The Money” – O’Keefe Punks Al Sharpton

Posted by Michael Strickland on Tuesday, February 24th, 2015 at 8:19 am

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 10.27.23 PMUndercover video investigator James O’Keefe, and his organization Project Veritas, have emerged with a new video, this time focusing on those who have associated with Al Sharpton and his National Action Network (NAN).

“It’s all about the money” says Bishop Calvin Scott, of the Believers Temple in Ferguson, MO. “He incites people for the wrong reason.” Another Sharpton associate, Jean Petrus, a donor to the Trayvon Martin Foundation, says Sharpton “Knows how to make money and get money. They’re shakedown guys to me. Let’s call it what it is.”

Other people involved in the remembrance of Trayvon also distance themselves from Sharpton, including Travon’s father, Tracy Martin. They recently purged all Sharpton imagery from the foundation’s website.

Erica Garner, daughter of Eric Garner, claims that one of the Sharpton’s organizers, Cynthia Davis, attacked her for not including the NAN logo on a series of flyers involving Eric Garner. “Instead of me, he wants his face in front of it. Al Sharpton paid for the funeral. She’s trying to make me feel like I owe them.” One of Erica Garner’s friends says “They [NAN] need them [Garner family] in a way to fund raise.”

“He’s like this” says Erica Garner, as she rubs her fingers together to indicate money.

Other community and church members in Ferguson, MO, back up the assertion that Sharpton was all about the money, and other than give a couple of speeches, couldn’t really name anything positive that he had done for their community.

Nevada Solar Farm Fries 130 Birds In 2 Hour Test

Posted by Michael Strickland on Monday, February 23rd, 2015 at 10:31 pm

25FD87CC00000578-0-Biologists_say_130_birds_have_caught_fire_in_mid_air_while_enter-m-4_1424688888496The Crescent Dunes Solar Energy Project array is nearly ready to go partially online in Nevada. The $737 Million publicly Department Of Energy funded project is intended to produce 110 MW of energy. There’s just one problem.

130 birds were literally set on fire in mid flight during a recent test run in the span of 2 hours. This is because the array redirects solar energy to a point 1200 feet above ground, right in the flightpath of birds.

Nature World News reports:

“About two hours into the test, engineers and biologists on site started noticing “streamers” – trails of smoke and steam caused by birds flying directly into the field of solar radiation. What moisture was on them instantly vaporized, and some instantly burst into flames – at least, until they began to frantically flap away. An estimated 130 birds were injured or killed during the test.”

“According to The Associated Press (AP), many biologists call the number of deaths “significant” and suspect that the streamers are caused by a chain of attraction – that is, insects are drawn towards the bright plant’s light, which in turn attracts birds looking to feast on crispy bugs.”

Posted by Michael Strickland on Monday, February 23rd, 2015 at 7:21 pm

Bill de Blasio, Bill BrattonNew York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s new $35 Million “smart policing” program advises that officers to close their eyes, step back, and take a deep breath when in tense situations.

From the New York Post:

“One cop who sat through two full-day programs called them “not realistic’’ and “pretty silly.”

At one point during the lectures, the cop said, those in attendance were given breathing exercises to learn how to calm down — even when facing someone who could pose a threat to their safety.

They said if you find yourself in a situation that’s getting heated, take a step back, close your eyes and take a deep breath,” he said.”

Oregon Governor’s First Act Is To Investigate Whistle Blowers

Posted by Michael Strickland on Monday, February 23rd, 2015 at 7:02 pm

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss. After taking the oath of office last week to replace resigning John Kitzhaber, former Secretary Of State/now-Governor Kate Brown has launched investigations into the whistleblowers who exposed some of the corruption during the Kitzhaber reign.

From the Oregonian:

“A top official in Gov. Kate Brown’s administration has launched a criminal investigation searching for the person who leaked former Gov. John Kitzhaber’s personal emails.
 
Meanwhile, two high-ranking state managers were placed on administrative leave on Friday pending a personnel investigation that is separate from the criminal one. One, Michael Rodgers, is the same manager who blocked a well-publicized effort by Kitzhaber’s staff to delete copies of his personal emails stored in state archives.”

“Among the emails was an exchange between Kitzhaber and his ethics lawyer, Stephen Janik, that confirmed the ex-governor’s involvement in a strategy to blunt an ethics review of [Cylvia] Hayes’ conduct. The Oregonian/OregonLive earlier reported on that strategy, citing filings made with the Oregon Government Ethics Commission.”

“James Moore, a politics professor at Pacific University, said the leaker may have been a whistleblower whose primary motivation was to avoid improper destruction of public records. He called a criminal investigation “overkill” and said it conflicted with Brown’s public statements embracing transparency.”

Anti-Gun Woman’s Hilariously Awful Public Testimony

Posted by Michael Strickland on Sunday, February 22nd, 2015 at 11:16 am

Screen Shot 2015-02-22 at 2.55.38 AMWARNING: Before playing this video, please swallow your food, put down the coffee, and warn your family members and neighbors about the laughter you will soon be exerting. This is quite possibly the most delusional anti gun rant you will ever hear.

This woman rambles on incoherently, without making a single valid point, while delivering such lines as “The 2nd Amendment was written 1776… every town had guns, they were kept in the armories… We do have armories, but we use them to house the Red Cross when there’s a disaster”… “All of these law abiding citizens are shooting back and forth in front of our house”… “To get that gun, we walked into Wal Mart, went up to the gun counter, showed them our license, he bought the gun and carried it out… That’s how difficult the background check was”… “You talk about big money coming in. What do you call the NRA and all of the gun manufacturers that are making the NRA nothing but a publicity arm”…”I feel that sensible rules have to be put in place. We may not have designed them yet, but they have to be worked out. But to sit and say absolutely no change, you might as well put a gun to your head, because that is sheer stupidity”

You cannot buy this kind of comedy.

DHS Secretary: Not All Illegals Are Criminals, No Administration Is Going To Deport Them (VIDEO)

Entering the United States without going through the proper legal procedures is considered a crime under Federal Law. Therefore anyone entering the country illegally has broken Federal law and is a criminal.

But don’t point out that obvious fact to the head of the agency who is supposed to enforce immigration law. Because during an interview on Fox News Sunday DHS Secretary, Jeh Johnson, after extensively defending President Obama’s denial about Radical Islam, stated that while the DHS is deporting illegals who are “convicted criminals” there are a large number of “undocumented” whom no administration, Democrat or Republican, are going to deport:

“Looking at it from my common sense perspective. The judge in his opinion, and I read all 123 pages of it so, said he has no quarrel with the notion that we are allowed to prioritize how we use our resources to deport people in this country.

“And we are prioritizing. We are prioritizing on convicted criminals. We are prioritizing on border security. Deporting those who are recent arrivals apprehended at the border.

“But there is a large segment of the undocumented population in this country, who have been here for years, who are not going to be deported in any administration, Democratic or Republican. That’s the reality…”

Dem Senator Urges Illegals To Join Gov Programs To “Make It More Difficult To Undo President’s Directives”

Posted by P.W. Adams on Friday, February 20th, 2015 at 10:13 pm

If a U.S. citizen assisted a known criminal in committing an illegal act they would rightfully be charged with aiding and abetting.

But when a United States Senator encourages known criminals to join government programs in order to circumvent a court’s ruling it’s considered politics.

The Communist Party USA news, People’s World, reports that after the recent Federal court ruling freezing President Obama Executive Amnesty plan, Democrat Senator Richard Blumenthal met with illegal aliens in Connecticut and encouraged them to enroll in government programs in order to make it more difficult to undo the President’s directives:

“NEW HAVEN, Conn. – Vowing not to be deterred by the Texas federal court ruling which temporarily stopped implementation of President Obama’s immigration directives, families being hurt and their advocates gathered in New Haven City Hall to tell their stories to Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and lay out ideas for an action plan.

They told of increasing concerns in the community that dreams will be put on hold once again, and that lives would be endangered if a different president rescinds the directives. The consensus was that the larger the number of people who apply, the harder it will be to invalidate the program.

Clinics to assist those eligible to apply for the Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA) and expanded Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) are going forward throughout Connecticut, and Blumenthal promised to come by to offer support and allay fears.

“The more people who apply, the more difficult it will be to undo the directives from the President,” he said.

Pelosi and Top Democrats Meet With Cuban Communist Vice President

The horrors which were committed by the Castro brothers, and their supporters, as they came to power in Cuba are second only to their Communist cousins who seized power in Russia decades before. One of the main tools used by the Castro brothers for forcing their Marxist ideology on the poor people of Cuba were the infamous firing squads. Almost 1,300 people were swept up by the Communist revolutionaries and executed.

But ABC reports that the plight of the Cuban people, nor the bloody history of the Castro brothers were on the mind of Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and a contingent of her fellow Democrats today as they met with the Cuban Communist Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel:

The minority leader of the U.S. House of Representatives and a delegation of fellow Democrats have met with Cuban Vice President Miguel Diaz-Canel, the man currently expected to take power after President Raul Castroleaves office in 2018.

Cuban state media say Rep. Nancy Pelosi and eight colleagues on Thursday discussed Cuban economic reforms, U.S-Cuba relations and congressional efforts to lift the U.S. trade embargo onCuba. A spokesman for Pelosi says her office has no immediate comment on the meeting.

U.S. officials say Pelosi’s delegation is the first to meet with Diaz-Canel. Some previous delegations have met with Castro.”

So while Democrats love to protest the fact that Republicans have invited to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, they have no hesitation in meeting with Communist leaders whose power was founded on the blood of an innocent and freedom loving people.
