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.

Winning the New Civil War (OPINION)

An excellent opinion piece…

Published

on

The American Civil War of 1861-65 is considered the first “modern” war. Both sides used advances in communications and military technology that resulted in 600,000 deaths. Now, more than 150 years later, Americans are engaged in a new civil war. This time it is not a war of armies and weapons and regional animosity—it is a war of visions. Liberals and conservatives each have a different vision for the future of the nation. Conservatives believe in the Constitution and the rule of law. The vision of “progressive” liberals is an authoritarian socialist nation run by unaccountable bureaucrats—an approximation of Venezuela, somewhere between Stalin’s Soviet Union and Orwell’s 1984. The conflict over these value systems has escalated into the new civil war. We have many strong indications that this is a hot war: the depredations of Antifa, a contemporary incarnation of Nazi brown shirts; Maxine Waters urging liberals to confront Trump supporters; mobs threatening the homes of prominent conservatives; the attacks on Justice Brett Kavanaugh; and the attempted impeachment of President Trump by partisan Democrats in the House. The war began when Barack Obama was elected president. After promising just the opposite, the Obama presidency played into the leftist strategy of “divide and conquer.” The fraud known as identity politics was a child of the Obama years. Using their perverted version of “diversity,” the Democratic Party—under the leadership of Obama—exploited discontented elements in American society to foment division and hatred. Obama’s comments in case after case—lies and distortions—stoked the fires of racial discord. After eight years of Obama, relations between conservatives and liberals were worse than ever and the country was plunged into darkness. This new civil war is much more intimate than the old one. Instead of North pitted against South, we have friend against friend, neighbor against neighbor, brother…

Congress to Take Action Against ABC News for Covering Up Epstein Story [Developing]

Is the GOP growing a spine?

Here’s something you probably didn’t expect to see today. It could potentially be great news for America, too! Apparently, Congressional Republicans have finally grown a spine and have decided to do something about corruption within the mainstream media. At the very least, it could be a solid start. There’s no reason ABC News should’ve covered-up a bombshell story they had on Jeffrey Epstein years ago. But they did it. Why? Because disgraced former President Bill Clinton was involved? Hmm… There’s also no reason for uninformed Americans to remain uninformed Americans. But if ABC and all other left-leaning outlets continue to hide the truth and bury the facts, then Democrats will continue to win elections. And who is that helping, exactly? From ABC News: Megyn Kelly reported on Sunday night that House Minority Leader Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) has contacted the president of ABC News and is demanding that the network answer questions about why it killed a bombshell story three years ago on convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein that involved former Democratic President Bill Clinton. The news comes after James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exclusively reported last month on leaked video footage from inside ABC News that showed anchor Amy Robach admitting that the network had the scandal on Epstein three years ago but that the network spiked it. “Then the Palace found out that we had her whole allegations about #PrinceAndrew…threatened us in a million different ways. We were so afraid that we wouldn’t be able to interview Kate and Will…That also quashed the story.” – @arobach #EpsteinCoverup https://twitter.com/JamesOKeefeIII/status/1195741556390666242?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1195741556390666242&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ffeminist-chrissy-teigen-calls-republican-rep-elise-stefanik-trash All signs pointed to Epstein being murdered in his jail cell. The writing was on the wall. Everyone could see it. Someone more powerful than he needed to make sure he kept his mouth shut and didn’t sing. It’s that simple. A…
