Closing Thought–10Aug21

Pres. Joe Biden has been and is riding high in the approval polls….sadly his VP cannot say the same thing……

A Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll survey released Monday found Biden’s approval dropping to 52 percent. He may still be above water — only 43 percent of respondents disapprove of the job he’s doing in the Oval Office — but he’s down 10 points from where he was in June, when his approval was at 62 percent.

But like I said VP Harris is not that fortunate….

Forty-seven percent of registered voters polled had an unfavorable view of Harris, compared to 45 percent who had a favorable view, the survey of 1,997 registered voters conducted between July 16 and 18 found. 

The same poll found 52 percent of respondents holding a favorable view of President Biden, with 45 percent holding an unfavorable view.

These falling poll numbers are a bit disconcerting for Dems…..

Democrats are rightly worried by Harris’s anemic poll numbers. But her poll numbers have always been bad–except for one brief moment when she exposed Biden’s awful record on race, then immediately retreated. Every progressive policy she claimed to support was transparently an election gimmick. No one likes or trusts a prosecutor, especially one who aggressively harassed the poor and powerless while letting apex financial criminals walk.

Like I keep saying….calling either Biden or Harris a progressive is a disservice and an out right LIE!

Our two leaders are puppets of cash….corporations own them and that will NEVER change.

Those Idiots To The Right

It seems that the Right these days has a competition going on who can say the most outrageous and stupid statements…..these are just a few of those idiots…..

Let’s begin with the NEWT!

Since the 90s I have never been a fan of Newt Gingrich….I thought then as now that he is nothing but a loud mouth windbag……and his latest moronic statement just reinforces my thinking….

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich appeared to embrace a racist conspiracy theory during an interview on Fox Business Wednesday, saying “the left” was bringing in immigrants “to get rid of the rest of us.”

Gingrich made the comments during a conversation about immigrants from Latin America entering the country during a COVID-19 surge, saying that those crossing the border were filtering out “traditional, classic Americans.”

“The anti-American left would love to drown traditional, classic Americans with as many people as they can who know nothing of American history, nothing of American tradition, nothing of the rule of law,” he said.

“If you go and look at the radical left, this is their ideal model. It’s to get rid of the rest of us because we believe in George Washington, or we believe in the Constitution, and you see this behavior over and over again.”

Constitution?

Now that is a hoot!  The Constitution means NOTHING to these dirt-bags….it is only a prop for them to try and lean on…..and Newt is the biggest piece of manure….but he has others waiting to out do him.

Then there is a US senator that has joined in the stupid brigade…..Rand Paul…..

Senator Rand Paul has claimed that Democrats are “plucking” kids with Covid from the border “ to “seed the country with a new variant” in a claim that’s been roundly slammed for being blatant disinformation.

Seriously?  He joins the Stupid Brigade.

Then there is the Blond Bimbo of Babylon…Rep. Taylor-Greene……she thinks people should use there guns and threaten people….

Greene told a crowd in Dothan, Alabama that volunteers should remember the Second Amendment when asking Southerners whether they’ve been vaccinated.

“Well, Joe Biden wants to come talk to you guys. He’s going to be sending one of his police state friends to your front door to knock on the door,” Greene said. “Take down your name, your address, your family members’ names, your phone numbers, your cell phone numbers, probably ask for your Social Security Number and whether you’ve taken the vaccine or not.”

While the Biden Administration last month announced plans to have volunteers reach out to unvaccinated Americans with door-to-door campaigns, Alabama, which has the second-lowest vaccination rate in the country, has no such strategy in place.

“Yea, well, what they don’t know is in the South we all love our Second Amendment rights and we’re not real big on strangers showing up on our front door, are we?” Greene continued.

This twat is NOT qualified to lead….she has done nothing for this country since her election…..

The Latest On Climate

The clock is ticking!

TICK TOCK

The UN has released its report on the condition of the planet with climate change…..not at all a glowing report…..

The new week begins with grim reading from a landmark UN report about the state of the planet. The 3,000-plus page assessment of the climate concludes that while things are bad now—witness the extreme weather unfolding around the globe—they are certain to get worse in the coming decade. However, the authors say it’s possible to stave off the most dire scenarios, essentially a planet unrecognizable from the one we know today, though only if nations take immediate steps to start reining in greenhouse gas emissions. Coverage:

  • The report: Read it here. Produced by the International Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, it was written by more than 230 scientists and based on more than 14,000 studies. It’s a “code red for humanity,” says the UN, per the AP.
  • New rate: Extreme heat waves that used to hit once every 50 years now happen once a decade, say the authors, per Reuters. And that rate will almost certainly get worse. The same general trend applies to droughts and heavy rains.
  • The warming: The world has warmed about 1.1 degrees Celsius since the 19th century, and the authors say it is almost certainly too late to avoid reaching the Paris accord threshold of 1.5 degrees by 2040, reports the New York Times. At that mark, the world becomes an even more dangerous place, with more than 1 billion at risk from frequent heat waves.
  • Bleak quotes: “We can expect a significant jump in extreme weather over the next 20 or 30 years,” says Piers Forster of the University of Leeds, one of the authors. Another co-author, Linda Mearns of the US National Center for Atmospheric Research, tells the AP: “It’s just guaranteed that it’s going to get worse. I don’t see any area that is safe.”
  • Longer term: The report lays out five scenarios, and in three of them, the world surpasses 2 degrees Celsius warming by mid-century. On these tracks, it’s possible the mark could surpass 3 or even 4 degrees. In the rosiest scenario, an immediate shift away from fossil fuels would enable the rise to level off at about 1.5 degrees.
  • One forecast: A rise of 2 degrees “could trigger the inexorable collapse of the Greenland ice sheet and more than six feet of sea-level rise that could swamp coastal communities,” per the Washington Post. “Coral reefs would virtually disappear.”
  • Blame: The report says it’s “unequivocal” that human behavior has warmed the planet. As for current events: “Extreme events, heat waves, droughts, heavy precipitation: When we see these things in the news, they really are a result of climate change and the science is really able to detect that,” says co-author Jessica Tierney, of the University of Arizona, per Quartz. “You can always get an extreme flood or drought by chance, but now we can show that the chances of some of these events happening would have been almost nil.”

The planet is burning and the best we can do is ignore the coming problems.

Time is running out!
