Flashback: Even Far-Left Fact Checkers Call Out Kamala Harris After Latest Blatant Lie

And they say Sarah Sanders is ‘known’ for lying? LOL.

*Originally published September 2019* All politicians are liars to an extent, some more than others. In a very real sense, Kamala Harris is queen of the fibbers.

When even a far-left “fact-checking” website calls out one of their own, you just know something’s up.

Maybe Kamala will get the message? Maybe pigs will start flying?

Kamala Harris claimed she ‘sued Exxon Mobil’ as California AG. She didn’t. | PolitiFact California

From Politifact:

We found Harris’ office investigated Exxon in 2016 over allegations it lied to the public and its shareholders about the risk to its business from climate change. The Los Angeles Times detailed that probe in a January 2016 news article. It said Exxon rejected the allegations.

But there’s no public record, and nothing that Harris’ campaign could provide, to show she filed a lawsuit against the company.

“The facts are Harris opened an investigation against Exxon for lying about climate change. She didn’t take that further even though she should have and other attorney generals did,” said Kassie Siegel, climate director at the Center for Biological Diversity Action Fund. “She did bring some cases against oil companies. I’m not aware of a case that she actually brought against Exxon. And she didn’t bring the case against Exxon for lying about climate change.”

SEE IT: World’s Largest Tree Wrapped in Foil to Prevent Wildfire Damage

It may look silly, but it might just save one of our nation’s most prized natural wonders.

Published

on

For all of the technological and scientific advancements we’ve made as a species, there are still some areas in which nature will get the best of us.  The awful and awe-inspiring forces that exist around us are not to be trifled with, and no amount of bandwidth is going to change that.

And so, when the world’s largest tree found itself in the crosshairs of one of California’s most explosive wildfires, authorities turned to an old-fashioned trick to try and keep it safe.

Firefighters wrapped the base of the world’s largest tree in a fire-resistant blanket as they tried to save a famous grove of gigantic old-growth sequoias from wildfires burning in California’s rugged Sierra Nevada.

The colossal General Sherman Tree in Sequoia National Park’s Giant Forest, some other sequoias, the Giant Forest Museum and other buildings were wrapped for protection against the possibility of intense flames, fire spokeswoman Rebecca Paterson said.

And there is a history of this sort of thing working.

The aluminum wrapping can withstand intensive heat for short periods. Federal officials say they have been using the material for several years throughout the U.S. West to protect sensitive structures from flames. Near Lake Tahoe, some homes that were wrapped in protective material survived a recent wildfire while others nearby were destroyed.

The execution of the plan does give an outwardly awkward appearance, however.

These giant sequoias have been targeted several times by wildfires in recent years, as California continues to face worsening weather.

Gabby Petito Investigation Takes Strange Turn to Include Double Homicide

This is getting weirder by the minute.

Published

on

Out there, somewhere, is Gabby Petito.

The young woman has been missing for weeks now, after disappearing during a cross-country, social-media-heavy trip with her fiancé Brian Laundrie.  Now, Laundrie is back home in Florida, refusing to cooperate with police investigating her disappearance.

Now, in an even stranger turn of events, police are now admitting that a double homicide in Moab, Utah is being investigated as a potential connection to Gabby Petito going missing.

The Grand County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday that it is “actively looking into any connection” between a double homicide of newlyweds at a campground outside Moab last month and the recent disappearance of Gabby Petito.

“The Sheriff’s Office is not ruling anything out at this time and appreciate the concerns of the public and their willingness to contact this office with those concerns and information,” the Grand County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.

The newlyweds, 38-year-old Crystal Turner and 24-year-old Kylen Schulte, were found shot to death at a campground southeast of Moab on Aug. 18, five days after they were last seen leaving a downtown bar.

Bridget Calvert, Schulte’s aunt, told KUTV that the couple complained about a “creepy guy” who was making them uncomfortable in their campsite just days before the double homicide.

Protesters hoping to convince Laundrie to cooperate with police have begun to inundate his Florida neighborhood, as the family stays mum on the subject.

Petito’s parents have made several public calls for the Laundries to share what they know, but to no avail.
