Democrats have a long, and rather storied, history when it comes to sounding the alarm for what they say is the need to protect ‘Mother Earth’ from the many evils of man and to warn us the time for doing something about it is rapidly running out. Democrats have said that we have somewhere between 10 and 12 years before the planet is reduced to what will be nothing but a lifeless rock floating through space. And it matters not how much evidence is produced that refutes their many idiotic claims, they continue to do all that they can to advance their cause and they seem to thrive on the insanity that is required to support the lunacy of ‘climate change.’
Which brings me to ex-Senate Majority Leader ‘Dingy Harry’ Reid, Democrat, someone who has chosen to remain anything but silent since leaving the powerful post he held in the Senate, including advising several of the 2020 Democrat presidential hopefuls, writing various op-eds, and granting interviews with many of those in our ‘fake news’ media. It was in the New York Times that he put pen to paper and wrote about getting rid of the filibuster rule in the Senate that he helped to install, claiming in today’s political climate nothing can get done. ‘Dingy Harry’ said it was the filibuster that helped him to advance ex-president Barry ‘O’s radical leftwing agenda.
But it was during an interview on National Public Radio (NPR) that old ‘Dingy’ advanced the notion that the most pressing issue our country now faces, and that Congress needs to address, is ‘climate change.’ He said, “I think we need to take a very close look at getting rid of the filibuster, period.” And it was NPR’s host of Weekend Edition Sunday who then followed up to ask, “Doesn’t that create a situation where one party gets to railroad the other party depending on who is in charge of that upper chamber?” And ‘Dingy Harry’ said that without the filibuster a majority, instead of 60 votes, could actually make things happen.
‘Dingy Harry’ said, “It’s important, because let’s take some major issues the country faces.” And he went on to say, “No issue in my mind is more important than climate change.” He said, “It is devastating our world. The United States must be a leader in this.” And of course he went on to say, “But with Trump and basically Republicans saying that climate change doesn’t exist, we’re getting nothing done, I mean nothing, we don’t have a lot of time to spare.” But President Trump and the Republicans, minus RINOS like Romney, are not saying that ‘climate change’ doesn’t exist, they’re simply saying that there is zero proof that man has anything to do with it.
For instance, when climate alarmists claim to have witnessed the effects of global warming, they must be referring to at least 14 years ago. That’s because there has been no warming in the United States since at least 2005, according to updated data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). In January 2005, NOAA began recording temperatures at its newly built U.S. Climate Reference Network (USCRN). USCRN includes 114 pristinely maintained temperature stations spaced relatively uniformly across the lower 48 states and in locations far away from urban and land-development impacts that might taint temperature readings.
Poo-poo, the Democrats will all say as they regurgitate, once again, their bogus claim of how 97-98 percent of all supposed climate ‘experts’ agree with them on the issue of ‘global warming’, ‘climate change’ or ‘climate disruption’. You see, Democrats have many names for that which they seek to convince us of what is said to be the next grand apocalypse to be faced by man, and one that he himself is responsible for bringing about. But it’s all nothing more than smoke and mirrors, a ploy the Democrats have been using for decades to convince the American people to grant to the government the ability to better control every aspect of their lives.
It was back in the sixties it was many of these very same con artists who were busy pushing ‘Zero Population Growth’ as being necessary to save the planet! Now that Western Civilization has nearly achieved that goal they move the goalposts and tell us they need population replacement to maintain our economy! I hate to tell them this but flooding our economy with thirty million economic basket cases isn’t a winning strategy! It’s beginning to look like these clueless so-called experts (aka drips under pressure) have had their collective head buried up their collective ASS all along! But who among us would be the least surprised to find that out?
And then it was during roughly the same period that there came all manner of warnings about ‘global cooling’ and how some new ice age was looming just over the horizon. That too never really materialized. And then somehow we managed to transition away from ‘global cooling’ and that new ice age, to ‘global warming’ all in what I think was a matter of a decade. So tell me again why it is that we should spend any amount of time listening to any of these supposed climate ‘experts’ who in all likelihood don’t have a clue as to what they are talking about and, as a result, are all doing little more than simply blowing smoke. It just makes no sense.
And as much as I hate to disagree with old ‘Dingy Harry’, I would argue that the most pressing issue that our country now faces, and one that the voters must address in the coming election, and likely every election to follow, is the continuing rising tide of Socialism in America. As we can all now very plainly see, there is a very determined effort now underway by many in the Democrat Party, to advance the heavy hand of socialism in this country. Socialism and individual freedoms are not exactly what one could describe as being compatible, making for a rather frightening scenario at the hands of the Democrats. Democrats are far more dangerous than is ‘climate change.’
