actually I think this cartoon is very true to real life.. while the circumstances have turned out beneficial to Trump, clearly his characteristic behavior has contributed to finally getting North Korea to the table (again). It is still to be seen how much really comes out of it. However, this is a much better, faster start to denuclearize NK compared to previous attempts AND compared to the failed attempt by 44th with Iran.
Hat tip to Branco
The letter to the US Congress, asking for enforcement of immigration laws, tighter borders and ending sanctuary areas for illegal immigration within the US reads quite interesting.
Congress must act to pass legislation to secure our borders through enforcing immigration laws, tightening border security, support the replacement and upgrades to current barriers and fencing and construction of barriers along the U.S. and Mexico international boundary as requested by those areas where it is needed, suspending and/or monitoring the issuance of visas to any place where adequate vetting cannot occur, end criminal cooperation and shelter in cities, counties, and states, and have zero tolerance and increased repercussions for criminal aliens.
Bugges me for quite a while and therefore please inform yourself and see if you want to do something about it. Due to the restrictions, access especially to the age group most important to be educated is taken away.
At the least, you can watch some of their informative videos. At the most you might want to support them in their lawsuit.
With a hat-tip to http://www.battleswarmblog.com/ and thank you for expressing much of what drove voters in the US as well, especially the first 2 minutes..
To all that read this.. regardless of you being happy or unhappy about the current election, go and LISTEN / WATCH the confirmation hearings that happen right now daily on the CSPAN network.
So, due to hackers, who are not proven to be Russian, we have been informed of more crime by the Democratic presidential candidate and further more mischief of the Democratic party..
And the CIA blames Russia without proof, the FBI is more reserved and doubts it. Some more unknown secret agencies all agree – gee, would I like to know who and what these agencies all do.. but that is not mentioned..
All this is really bad, since foreign money influenced elections.. big donors from the Democratic Party taken out and even worse the State Department sending money to get people to oust a foreign leader..
But are we really believing that more information about the misbehaviour of a party did do the winning for Trump???? Or is it more the very-very bad history (just one example here..) of the most secretive administration and Mrs. Clinton herself..
Voters got more information since the hacks.. and that is good.
And here another good thought..
Once again, political correctness has run amok .. while some jobs need a language other than English (i.e. a translator..), some jobs need English the standard to communicate with.. not only because the workers need to understand the directions of the leaders, but even more so in customer communication, where understanding the “king” is of uttermost importance.
So, how about that..
Two years ago, the administration laid the foundation for the new measures by suing a private American business for discriminating against Hispanic and Asian employees because they didn’t speak English on the job. The case involved a Green Bay Wisconsin metal and plastic manufacturer that fired a group of Hmong and Hispanic workers over their English skills. Forcing employees to speak English in the U.S. violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the EEOC (U.S. Equal Employment
Opportunity Commission) claimed in its lawsuit.
That’s because the Civil Rights Act protects employees from discrimination based on national origin, which includes the linguistic characteristics of a national origin group. Therefore, the EEOC argued, foreigners have the right to speak their native language even during work hours at an American company that requires English.
So does it matter if the group shuts out their non-language peers at work? Would it matter if the communication of some workers can only be achieved by the help of a translator?
There is more in the Judical Watch article, but I should close with this gem (last paragraph at the link).
In another victory, a national retailer was forced to pay $2.5 million to black job candidates that had been screened with criminal background checks. The EEOC asserts background checks have a disparate impact on African Americans and the administration has bullied companies into eliminating them.
And one would wonder if you can trust your co-workers from now on..
Hint, it’s not the Republicans hindering science (albeit that seems to always be implied..). It’s the mono-cultural self-asserting bubble of academia.. which drives people to have confirmation bias and shoddy research. But there are good news, since it seems as if the next president tries to restore at least some sanity when it comes to the original tasks of government agencies job-description. Maybe the EPA stops focusing on a greenhouse gas plants need for growth and redoubles efforts when it comes to lead-contamination in the US (I know, one can dream).
NASA is returned to the original goal of space exploration.. and while the article clearly bemoans that.. it seems – to me – that even before the new president takes office the good news are rolling in.. the 36% of man-made climate change believers in the science community might be sad (and who knows how many have succumbed peer pressure since 2013) to , but hopefully the others feel some more space and freedom to express their believes.. as peer pressure is reduced..and maybe even the NASA page corrects their statement about how many scientists really believe in man-made climate change. After all there are scientists that don’t want to be thrown into the political fray .. even if their association promotes a political agenda..
There’s a wonderful article out there – go and use the link – it’s worth your time – that actually very accurately describes, why the real destruction of scientific trust is wrecked by the “tolerant” left..
That’s the ultimate casualty in the Left’s war: scientists’ reputations. Bad research can be exposed and discarded, but bad reputations endure.
The above conclusion of the article is what I have felt in the community and in my personal life already more than once.. and while I aimed to push back it is hard to explain to people why so many statements of the press are wrong, and even worse, why so many of the “scientific” publications about climate or global-something out there are biased, questionable and with agenda.
I close with two of my favorite cartoonists pictures about global warming..
Even the EPA concedes that all changes they want (at 100’s of Billions of Tax-Dollar) would only result in 0.2 degree C change.. (i.e. within the inaccuracy of measurement…. !!)
