    Glacier Park in Montana Set to Remove ‘Glaciers Will All Be Gone By 2020’ Signs


    Well, this is awkward.



    Montana’s Glacier National Park is being forced to remove all signs that read “glaciers will all be gone by 2020,” after the doomsday scenario didn’t happen.



    Some of the signs were already removed last year as it became clear the prediction wasn’t going to unfold.


    Now the rest of the signs will have to be taken down too.


    Glacier National Park spokeswoman Gina Kurzmen “told MTN News that the latest research shows shrinking, but in ways much more complex than what was predicted. Because of this, the park must update all signs around the park stating all glaciers will be melted by 2020,” reports 8KPAX.




    In the late 90’s and early 2000s, scientists predicted that man-made global warming would cause melting glaciers, leading to rapidly rising sea levels that would sink coastal cities and towns.


    The more dire forecasts have proven to be totally inaccurate and some glaciers are now growing.


    Back in June, NASA reported that the Jakobshavn Glacier in western Greenland had thickened and “has grown for the third year in a row.”


    The glacier prediction is by no means the only forecast global warming alarmists have got spectacularly wrong.


    At the end of the 70’s, climate experts said that a new ice age was coming. It didn’t happen.


    Paul Erlich’s prediction that hundreds of millions of people would die of starvation due to crop failure by the 1980’s also didn’t happen.
    The 2004 prediction that major European cities would be underwater and that Britain would be plunged into a Siberian climate by 2020 didn’t happen.


    Al Gore’s doomsday warning that the Arctic would have ice free summers by 2013 didn’t happen either.


    Maybe since these “experts” been caught lying time and time again, we should stop listening to them.

    A federal appeals court has overturned a lower court ruling to allow the Trump administration to divert $3.6 billion in military construction funds to fund expanded construction on the president’s southern border wall.



    In a 2-1 ruling, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, based in New Orleans, granted a ruling by a Texas judge, which put the funds on hold.


    The latest ruling give Trump yet another victory on his campaign plan to build a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. The Supreme Court last July set aside a similar injunction issued by a federal judge in Oakland, Ca.


    Trump applauded the move.


    “Breaking News: The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals just reversed a lower court decision & gave us the go ahead to build one of the largest sections of the desperately needed Southern Border Wall, Four Billion Dollars. Entire Wall is under construction or getting ready to start!” the president wrote on Twitter.

    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2020


    “The latest ruling applies to the military construction funds. Last September, Secretary of Defense Mark Esper authorized diverting $3.6 billion in the construction funds for 11 wall projects on the southern border with Mexico. The Pentagon said at the time that half the money was coming from deferred projects overseas, and the other half was planned for projects in the US,” CNN reported.


    The ruling doesn’t apply to the use of other funds, including counter-drug and Treasury Forfeiture Funds, that have been designated for wall construction.


    In February 2019 Trump ended a 35-day government shutdown when Congress gave him $1.4 billion in wall funding, far less than he had sought. He subsequently declared a national emergency to get money from other government accounts to construct sections of the wall.


    “We don’t control our own border,” Trump claimed at the time. “We’re going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border and we’re going to do it — one way or the other we have to do it.”

    Portland Passes “Green New Deal” Carbon Tax, First Of Its Kind in the Nation



    Referring to it with happy little buzzwords such as “climate justice,” the city of Portland will soon be implementing the first (and hopefully only) “green new deal” carbon tax in the nation, which city “leaders” estimate will suck $60 million out of the economy. The money will allegedly be going toward “creating” “green energy” jobs. They say the tax will only affect The Evil Corporations™ specifically referring to Walmart.



    The “Portland Clean Energy Community Benefits Initiative” was passed via ballot initiative in the 2018 election, when 173,000 people voted for it. It was originally projected to raise $30 Million. Now the city gets to see what they voted for.


    Oregon Public Broadcasting reported in 2018:


    Proponents, mostly local community organizations, said the benefits far outweigh any potential drawback, especially for communities of color — which they argue are disproportionately affected by climate change. The measure’s steering committee includes Verde, the Coalition of Communities of Color, the Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon and the Portland branch of the NAACP, among others.

    Willamette Week reports today:


    In just a few months, the city of Portland will begin investing the proceeds from a groundbreaking new tax on large companies.


    “It’s a model for the rest of the nation,” Mayor Ted Wheeler said recently. “A beacon and a testament to our community’s belief in doing things a different way.”



    The Portland Clean Energy Community Benefits Fund, or PCEF, will raise as much as $60 million a year from a new tax on big retailers. The money is supposed to supply clean, efficient energy and jobs to people the city has long slighted.


    At its core, the concept transfers wealth from big corporations such as Walmart to low-income Portlanders of color.

    It’s a local version of the Green New Deal proposed in 2019 by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). It’s also part of a larger political effort to reshape who calls the shots—and who benefits—in America’s whitest big city.


    Never has City Hall had so much money to spend with so few strings attached. The guidelines for spending the tax are squishy, as are the yardsticks for measuring the effectiveness of those expenditures.




    “One of the biggest tasks facing this effort is, what are the key metrics of success?” says David Heslam of Portland’s Earth Advantage Institute, a supporter of the new tax. “They haven’t communicated that yet.”




    That uncertainty concerns observers such as Maurice Rahming, an owner of O’Neill Electric, one of the city’s largest African American-owned contracting firms.



    “What are the accountability means they are going to use to track outcomes?” Rahming asks. “At the end of the day, it’s about accountability and delivering on services.”

    Oh, but it gets better. Remember the proposal to force building owners to provide space for the homeless vagrants? The woman behind that, Oriana Magnera, is the same one who peddled this unicorn fart climate utopia tax!


    More!

    Worth reading the whole article...mind blowing.

    Surveillance Video From Outside of Epstein’s Cell During ‘Suicide Attempt’ Destroyed Due to ‘Record-Keeping Error’: Prosecutors




    Last month prosecutors told a judge that the ‘missing‘ surveillance footage outside of Epstein’s prison cell on the night of his suicide attempt in July had been found.


    In a letter to a judge, US Attorney Geoffrey Berman said footage from Epstein’s suicide attempt in July has been located and the government is in the process of obtaining a copy.


    Now prosecutors are saying the surveillance video has been destroyed due to a “record-keeping error.”


    Even worse, the backup system for video surveillance wasn’t working due to ‘technical errors.’


    “The requested video no longer exists on the backup system and has not since at least August 2019 as a result of technical errors,” the prosecutors wrote.


    To be clear, the surveillance footage addressed by prosecutors pertains to Epstein’s first reported ‘suicide attempt’ in late July, not the night of his death in August.



    New York Daily News reported:


    Surveillance footage from outside Jeffrey Epstein’s cell during his suicide attempt was destroyed, prosecutors revealed Thursday.


    The revelation in a letter filed by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Maurene Comey and Jason Swergold is the latest head-spinning disclosure from the feds about the footage from the Metropolitan Correctional Center on July 22 and 23. Epstein attempted to hang himself that night while sharing a cell with accused quadruple murderer Nick Tartaglione, officials have said.


    Swergold initially said last month in White Plains Federal Court that the video had not been preserved. He reversed himself less than 24 hours later, saying it had been archived.


    Now, the feds say that due to a record-keeping error, MCC staff preserved footage from outside the wrong cell.


    “The footage contained on the preserved video was for the correct date and time, but captured a different tier than the one where Cell-1 was located because the preserved video did not show corrections officers responding to any of the cells seen on the video. After speaking with MCC legal counsel, the Government was informed that the MCC computer system listed a different, incorrect cell for Tartaglione,” prosecutors wrote in a letter filed in Manhattan Federal Court.

    Noted pedophile of the rich and powerful Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell in Manhattan in August one week after he supposedly attempted suicide in July.


    The 66-year-old financier and convicted pedophile was found dead in his prison cell in August and the medical examiner ruled his death a suicide by hanging.


    Epstein, who was 6 feet tall, reportedly secured the bedsheet on the bunk bed and wrapped the sheet around his neck.


    Epstein had a broken hyoid bone in his neck which is consistent with strangulation in homicides, not suicides.


    Newly released autopsy photos (screenshot below) sure looks like a wire was used to strangle Epstein.

    New York Bar Association Calls on Congress to Launch Investigation Into Attorney General Bill Barr



    The New York City Bar Association is once again attacking US Attorney General Bill Barr.


    The New York City Bar Association on Wednesday called on Congress to launch an investigation into Barr’s conduct, saying his public statements threaten “public confidence in the fair and impartial administration of justice.”


    “These public statements by Mr. Barr also contravene the norms applicable to his office and warrant further investigation by Congress as part of an inquiry into Mr. Barr’s conduct as Attorney General more generally,” the left-wing group wrote in a 6-page letter addressed to Pelosi, McCarthy, McConnell and Schumer.


    The group also criticized Barr’s October speech at Notre Dame University where he touted our founders for believing in God.


    Barr said, “the founding generation … believed that the Judeo-Christian moral system corresponds to the true nature of man” and that “Judeo-Christian moral standards are the ultimate utilitarian rules for human conduct.”


    Perhaps the New York City Bar Association prefers Sharia Law over the US Constitution which is the best document of freedom ever written and no doubt was inspired by biblical scripture.



    The bar association also cited Barr’s speech given at the Federalist Society’s National Convention a few months ago where he blasted the radical left.


    The New York Bar Association attacked Barr in October and called on him to recuse himself from ‘Ukraine-related matters.’


    “If he fails to do so, he should resign or, failing that, be subject to sanctions, including possible removal, by Congress,” the bar association said in a previous statement.


    The NYC Bar said that since Bill Barr was mentioned in the transcript of Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, he should not be allowed to investigate anything related to Ukraine, including Crowdstrike and the Biden crime family.


    Bill Barr appointed US Attorney from Connecticut John Durham to investigate the origins of Spygate — No wonder why the Trump-hating group wants Congress to harass Barr with an investigation.

    Man threatens Glendale family, police saying 'Allahu Akbar, I have a bomb'





    GLENDALE, AZ — A man recently released from prison is back behind bars after reportedly threatening a Glendale family and police saying, "Allahu Akbar, I have a bomb," court records show.


    Glendale police report that on January 4 around 4 a.m., officers were called to an apartment complex near 67th Avenue and Bethany Home Road.



    Upon arrival, police were told that 31-year-old Myron Tyquan Clark, who was previously thrown out of his family's apartment for alleged drug use, had returned to the apartment.


    Clark reportedly broke a window and dove into the apartment, landing on two children, court paperwork shows. He later left the apartment.


    Clark then allegedly went to another apartment and started pounding on the door yelling, "I have a bomb!" He then burst through the front window while seven residents were sleeping inside, police say.


    The residents of the second broken-into apartment retreated into a back bedroom and held the door shut while Clark reportedly began punching through the door.


    When police arrived, they heard the family screaming from a window they had broken out.


    Police say three officers were at the top of the stairs when Clark jumped out of the front window, yelling, "Allahu Akbar, I have a bomb."


    Court documents show Clark then grabbed a gun from an officer who had his weapon drawn, then proceeded to tackle the responding officer down the stairs.


    Clark allegedly began punching the officer and "digging his finger into the officer's eye," court records show. Clark also reportedly fought with the other two officers before being tased and arrested.


    Upon his arrest, Clark continued to say he had a bomb in the backpack he was carrying.


    Court records show that Clark has six prior felony convictions and was released from prison in August 2019.


    He was given a $100,00 bond on charges of burglary, criminal trespassing, and multiple counts of aggravated assault.

    THIS IS WEIRD? Democrat Rep. Elissa Slotkin REFUSES to Answer Town Hall Question about her Role in Obama’s Billion Dollar Payoffs to Iran



    Rep. Elissa Slotkin: Who is she REALLY representing in Congress?



    Elissa Slotkin is a far left Democrat who ran for Congress in Michigan even though she never voted there and does not own any property there.

    Slotkin’s home is in the Washington DC area.



    Elissa Slotkin is a former CIA analyst.


    This week Slotkin introduced the War Powers legislation to limit President Trump’s powers on confronting Iran.



    Elissa Slotkin was a top CIA analyst behind the Obama Iranian deal.

    Many suspect her role in the billions in bribes and pallets of cash that were hand delivered to the Iranian regime.



    Rep. Slotkin refuses to discuss her role in Obama’s multi-billion dollar payoffs to the Iranian mullahs.


    In November when facing constituents Slotkin refused to answer questions about her involement in Obama’s secret payments to Iran.



    Why is that?



    And why is Slotkin leading the charge against President Trump in favor of the Iranian regime?

    Whose side is she on anyway?

    • "I would take jail time over a bullet or an endorsement for what I believe to be disaster to this country"

    • O'Grady's negative stance regarding Trump did not end when he became president.

    O'Grady posted the logo for the Women's March on Denver as her Facebook cover backdrop on Inauguration Day

    • At 11:23 p.m. on Inauguration Day, she updated her profile picture to an artist's rendering of Princess Leia with the words, "A woman's place is in the resistance." "The resistance," with its allusion to the rebels in the "Star Wars" movies, has become a moniker for those opposing Trump's presidency.

    • In response to whether her expression of her opposition to Trump would affect her ability to do her job, she said:


    "I hope you understand that's an emphatic no and I need to make sure that's resoundingly clear and just reinforces that this job needs to done well."

    What a two-faced, lying little bitch... law and order!

    Nope....not law and order at all. This malcontent should be the subject of an OPR investigation, charged with violation of the Hatch Act, demoted, tried, convicted, fired, and jailed.

    No worries..."Barr is looking into it."

    Nope.....Its an internal matter at SS. The employee could be subjected to 2-4 weeks leave without pay, unless the loss was intentional, and referred to DOJ.
