WHAT? Democrats Have Banned ‘Climate Change’ as Presidential Debate Focus

The Democrat Party has announced that climate change will not be a focus at the Democrat presidential debates this year.

Despite nearly every Democrat in and out of the hunt for the White House exclaiming that climate change is a “crisis,” the Democrat Party has announced that climate change will not be a focus at the Democrat presidential debates this year.

According to Politico the Democrat National committee has “opted” to ignore climate change in the upcoming debates ahead of the 2020 Democrat primaries.

Hopeless candidate Jay Inslee — a nobody that thinks he’s running for president along with 25 others — told Politico that the DNC has refused his request to dedicate at least one full debate to climate change.

Inslee, who has foolishly made climate change the central point of his tractionless campaign, denounced the DNC for its decision.

“The DNC is silencing the voices of Democratic activists, many of our progressive partner organizations, and nearly half of the Democratic presidential field who want to debate the existential crisis of our time,” Inslee told Politico. “The climate crisis merits a full discussion of our plans, not a short exchange of talking points.”

Left-wingers, though, are furious at the DNC for the decision.

As Politico noted:

“This is an outrage,” the Sunrise Movement said in a tweet. “This is an emergency. We need @TheDemocrats to act like it.”

The Sierra Club and Tom Steyer’s NextGen America also urged the DNC to reconsider.

“This is a deeply disappointing decision,” the Sierra Club said in a tweet. “Democratic candidates are offering strong, bold climate plans that contrast sharply with Trump’s inaction & the public deserves to hear them discussed in depth.”

The DNC’s move comes despite the fact that the left’s It Girl, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, has proclaimed climate change to be “our WWII.”

In January, Ocasio-Cortez insisted that climate change is her generation’s World War Two… of course, World War Two was EVERYONE’S World War Two, but… you know.

A long list of Democrats has joined Ocasio-Cortez in her child-like alarmism, too. From former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, to billionaire Democrat activist Tom Steyer, to many of those now running for president such as Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Bernie Sanders, many Democrats have jumped on board the climate change bandwagon.

So, with all this pressure, why did the DNC just nix the idea of pushing the issue hard during the 2020 debates?

Apparently, the DNC is reading the polls to find that fewer Americans every year are falling for the mythical religion of globaloney.

Pew Research, for instance, recently reported that almost half of Americans (47%) think the reports on global warming in the media is “made up news” (i.e. fake news).

“U.S. adults are more likely to say that ‘made-up news/info’ is a big problem than they are to identify climate change, racism, terrorism, or sexism as such, according to a study out from the Pew Research Center Wednesday: Fifty percent of those surveyed said made-up news (the artist formerly known as ‘fake news’) is a ‘very big problem’ in the United States. By comparison, 46 percent called climate change a ‘very big problem’; 40 percent said the same about racism; 34 percent said the same about terrorism.”

Another polling firm, the Gallup Group, has found that worries about globalwarming have pretty much remained steady. In other words, Americans are not becoming increasingly worried about the issue.

Apparently the DNC is afraid of making their candidates look like screaming communists by focusing on globaloney for an entire debate as they would likely vie to outdo each other in destructive, anti-capitalist, anti-American policy proposals.

Palestinian Terrorists Blow Up Israeli Teen, & Rashida Tlaib Has the Nerve to Blame ISRAEL

She’s just unreal.

Can the Democrats of Michigan truly feel good about themselves knowing they put an openly anti-Semitic woman in Congress? Maddening. Check out Muslim Democrat Rashida Tlaib’s tweet on Israel upon learning Palestinian terrorists literally blew up an Israeli teenager… From Red State: You may have heard the recent news of a 17 year old Israeli girl being killed by a bomb that was planted by Palestinian terrorists. Her father and brother were also seriously wounded in the attack. This all occurred while they simply out enjoying a family swim. Worse, the bomb had apparently been planted months ago and the terrorists were waiting on the “right” victim to denote it on. That turned out to be a teenage girl because these are the kinds of monsters the Israelis have to deal with on a daily basis. Enter Tlaib: This is absolutely tragic & horrible. My heart goes out to Rina’s family. More than ever we need to support nonviolent approaches to ending the Israeli occupation and guaranteeing equal rights for all. Extremism that puts innocent lives at risk moves us no closer to peace. https://twitter.com/RashidaTlaib/status/1165067456676847616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1165067456676847616&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.redstate.com%2Fbonchie%2F2019%2F08%2F24%2Fpalestinian-terrorists-kill-israeli-child-rep.-rashida-tlaib-blames-jews The first thing to note is that she’s retweeting a rabidly anti-Semitic organization that continually blames Israel for all the world’s ills while never standing against Palestinian terrorism. That would be bad enough, but Tlaib goes further. She gives her own awful commentary blaming the “occupation” and the idea that if only Israel gave into the Palestinians, they’d all live in peace and harmony. You see, it’s not the fault of the Palestinian terrorists who killed this girl. It’s Israel’s fault for somehow provoking them by not letting their country be overrun with an Islamism that wants to destroy it. Reactions: This is vile! Have you no shame? How dare you blame the murder of…

AOC Comes Unglued, Says the Electoral College Is ‘Affirmative Action’ for Rural Americans

Come on, man!

Democrats hate the Electoral College because they don’t understand what it’s about. Preventing tyranny of the majority is crucial. New Yorkers and Californians and people from a few other large states shouldn’t get all the say, leaving residents of smaller states feeling as though their voice literally does not matter. Had Hillary Clinton acquired the necessary electorals to win in 2016, Dems would be fighting to see the system remain in place. And yet, here we are. Enter embattled rookie lawmaker, Alexandria O’Commie-Cortez… Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) continued her verbal assault on the Electoral College, this time smearing the Constitutional system that guarantees big states don’t have undue influence in electing the president as an “electoral affirmative action” scheme for rural Americans. I see Fox News is big mad about abolishing the electoral college. So let’s talk about it. 1) If the GOP were the “silent majority” they claim, they wouldn’t be so scared of a popular vote. They *know* they aren’t the majority. They rely on establishing minority rule for power. https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164987742842830848?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1164987742842830848&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2019%2F08%2F24%2Focasio-cortez-electoral-college-is-affirmative-action-for-rural-americans%2F 2) This common claim about “if we don’t have the Electoral College then a handful of states will determine the presidency” is BS. a. It’s the *EC itself* that breaks down power by state, pop vote decentralizes it b. The EC makes it so a handful of states DO determine elections https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164988657209507845 3) LASTLY, this concept that the Electoral College is provides “fairness” to rural Americans over coastal states doesn’t hold any water whatsoever. First of all, virtually every state has rural communities. NY. California. Much of our states are rural. But very importantly… https://twitter.com/AOC/status/1164989849226506240 4) We do not give electoral affirmative action to any other group in America. Do Black Americans have their votes count more bc they have been disenfranchised for 100s of years? Do…
