I think few people can dispute the fact that, especially after having watched the goings on of the last 2+ years, Democrats just love taking part in all manner of hoaxes. But if we’re being honest, the Democrat Party’s continuing claim that they are the guardians of the poor and unfortunate has long been nothing more than a hoax perpetrated upon the American people. Although, I must say with the arrival of Barry ‘O’ onto scene, there has been a willingness on the part of Democrats to finally come out of the shadows and be much more ‘ honest’ with the American people about what it is they wish to shove down their throats courtesy of their radical socialist agenda.
And the one continuing hoax upon which the Democrat Party has spent a great deal of time, energy and money in their effort to keep it alive, is, of course, the hoax that is ‘man made climate change.’ And make no mistake it is definitely a hoax. But being the ‘never say die’ kinda folks these people are, I’m guessing they figure if they talk about it enough the less intelligent among us will finally come around and accept as fact all of the nonsense that they’re being told. Which, of course, brings me to that well-known supporter of ALL manner of leftwing hoaxes, no matter how crazy or false they may be, Chuckie Schumer. No hoax is too radical for Chuckie to support.
You see, it was just this past Wednesday that Chuckie took to the Senate floor, shortly after the chamber voted on what’s being called the ‘Green New Deal’, and made the rather bold, and patently dishonest, claim that manmade ‘climate change’ is in fact very real and that “flooding, tornadoes, and wildfires” would continue. Chuckie said, “Temperatures will still go up. The oceans will still rise.” And he rambled on saying, “The terrible kinds of disaster–flooding, tornadoes, and wildfires–that we have had will continue.” But in truth it’s all nothing more than pure political BS perpetrated by a group of people who really do HATE America!
What apparently prompted this bizarre display, or Chuckie’s most recent trip into ‘climate change’ fantasyland, was that earlier in the day Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell offered a motion to bring that nitwit Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’ up for a vote, which would require getting 60 senators to agree to cloture. Fifty-seven members—including 54 Republicans and 3 Democrats—voted to block the vote on the Green New Deal. And too, rather than vote in favor of having a vote on the Green New Deal, 43 members, all of them Democrats, simply chose to vote ‘present.’ Yup, nothing like having the courage to stand up for your agenda.
Chuckie then proudly stood on his soapbox, giving a ‘speech’, which was more of a rant really, during which he claimed that “McConnell’s stunt” had “boomeranged on him.” He also applauded McConnell for telling reporters later that he believed that manmade ‘climate change’ was in fact taking place. While I didn’t hear specifically what McConnell might have said, there are a great many people who do agree that ‘climate change’ is in fact taking place, but it’s whether it can safely be declared to be ‘man made’ that continues to be the sticking point. Because there is NO consensus and NO science, other than among Democrats, that that is in fact the case.
But anyway, be that as it may, what follows here is a little excerpt of Chuckie’s idiotic rant made from the floor of the Senate:
“McConnell’s stunt, again, boomeranged on him and his colleagues, and they finally had to discuss this issue rather than do what they have liked to do for the last 5 years and sweep it under the rug.
Yesterday, the day before, today, and continuing in the future, we ask our Republican colleagues three simple questions to which they owe an answer to their constituents. First, do you believe climate change is real? Second, do you believe climate change is caused by human activity? And third, do you believe Congress has to act immediately to deal with this problem?
We are finally getting some answers, thanks to McConnell’s trick that he eventually played on himself. No less than Leader McConnell was asked by the press yesterday afternoon at his Ohio Clock press camp if he believes in climate change, and he said he believes it is real and he believes it is caused by human activity. Well, there is one more step if you believe all that: What is your answer–not what you are against but what you are for?
I want to commend Senators Roberts, Alexander, and Murkowski. They came to the floor and stated unequivocally and clearly that climate change is real and caused by humans. Make no mistake, in this glacial atmosphere controlled by the Republicans, when it comes to climate change, this is real progress, but, of course, it is not close to enough.
As to the third question, Leader McConnell offered no solution. All we got was a sham vote that he voted against. So I ask Leader McConnell: What is your plan? Some Republicans now seem to admit the challenges of climate change. OK, that is good. Now, what is your solution?
Turning the Senate floor into a campaign ad studio is not a solution to climate change, nor is it very effective even for their own purposes. Several Senators seemed to suggest that this problem can simply be solved by funding for more research. I support funding for research. It should be part of any climate plan. Yet I say to my friends–particularly, those from coal States–that is not going to solve the problem. Dealing with coal sequestration and coal technology will, at best, solve 1 percent of the problem. So I say to my friends:
What about the other 99 percent, because 1 percent isn’t enough? Temperatures will still go up. The oceans will still rise. The terrible kinds of disaster–flooding, tornadoes, and wildfires–that we have had will continue. To simply say that you are doing some research into how to deal with coal is not close to solving the problem. …
I am glad that finally, though–this is the good news here–some of my colleagues are starting to see the light and admit that it is real and admit that it is caused by human activity. Now, they need to put their money where their mouth is and work with us to take action that matches the scale of the problem.”
It goes without saying that Democrats have a rather long history of claiming to be prophets, of a sort, like modern day Nostradamus’s making all manner of dire predictions of pending Republican inspired disasters. And in so doing they continue to demonstrate just how stupid they think we all are! And I don’t know if they know it’s all a lie, or if they actually believe their own propaganda while refusing to accept anything that calls it into question, and I’m not sure which is worse. They have been spouting the same crap for decades, claiming they seek only to protect us from all those evil Republicans who they claim actually WANT dirty air and dirty water!
But this, just like every other hoax they’ve ever attempted to foist upon the American people, has nothing to do with having the best interests of the American people at heart. What Democrats are all about, and I mean ALL about, is coming up with ever more inventive ways to control the lives of ALL Americans. And it is this ‘climate change’ nonsense that they seem to think provides them the best opportunity to do that. And make no mistake, if the American people are ever again foolish enough to hand complete control of their government over to these climate zealots, Democrats will no longer seek to convince us of these supposed dangers, they will simply act.
