Enough with talk, America, it’s time to fight

Sylvia Thompson
July 9, 2020

When Barack Obama was imposed upon the American people by the progressive Left in his bid for President of the United States in 2008, many American people acquiesced and voted for him. They did so without knowing much of anything about him. Some were so beaten down and worn from carrying the burden of “being white,” they essentially conceded to electing a “black” man with no substantive qualifications for the job and a very suspicious past. We now know what a travesty he and his administration were to our nation.

Somewhat in keeping with the terrible racist record that Obama set…

Why Is The COVID-19 Caseload Rising In California?

PA Pundits - International

By Kevin Pham ~

The United States had made great progress in suppressing the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus causing the COVID-19 pandemic.

Unfortunately, by mid-June, the number of new cases began to surge, and now daily incidence of COVID-19 cases has far exceeded the confirmed daily incidence during the early peak of the pandemic.

In the time that Texas was well into its third phase of reopening, California had only begun moving into its second, yet is seeing a similar surge in cases. Pictured: A street art piece by artist Pony Wave on March 21, 2020, in Venice, California. (Photo: Mario Tama/Getty Images)

There are several states that are nexuses of the current rush of cases. Much of the media attention has been devoted to Florida and to Texas. Both states have been criticized for reopening too soon, but one state cannot be criticized for loosening restrictions too soon.

The Press Secretary Puts Down Bombastic Reporters

PA Pundits - International

By Tim Graham ~

The July 6 Washington Post carried a typically colorful headline on top of the Style section. “A binder full of bombast: Kayleigh McEnany plays her boss and his base with derisive news briefing walk-offs.”

Media reporter Paul Farhi wrote McEnany’s “would-be smackdowns seemed so orchestrated” they only lacked some kind of musical flourish, like the opening witticisms leading into the theme song on the crime drama CSI: Miami.

McEnany flourished again later that day, noting “I was asked probably 12 questions about the Confederate flag. This President is focused on action and I’m a little dismayed that I didn’t receive one question on the deaths that we got in this country this weekend.” She wasn’t asked “about New York City shootings doubling for the third straight week, and over the last seven days shooting skyrocket [sic] by 142 percent.” Reporters groaned and protested.

How the EPA’s ‘Endangerment Finding’ Endangers You


By:                      David Legates

How the EPA’s 'Endangerment Finding' Endangers You

Most people are unaware of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) “Carbon Dioxide Endangerment Finding” or what it means to them.

The “Endangerment and Cause or Contribute Findings for Greenhouse Gases Under Section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act”, as it is formally known, was issued in 2009.  It specifically requires the EPA to apply the Clean Air Act to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide and other “greenhouse gases” from vehicles, power plants, and other industries.

The Clean Air Act, enacted in 1963, was designed to limit air pollution within the United States and it has worked well. Since then, air pollution has been reduced dramatically.  However, the Supreme Court ruled in 2007 that greenhouse gases, and specifically carbon dioxide, are air pollutants and, thus, the EPA is obligated to limit their emissions to protect the…

Michael Shellenberger Exposes Climate Industrial Complex in ‘Apocalypse Never’


Climate alarmists continue to berate us that the world is doomed and the only ‘solution’ offered is channelling $trillions more in subsidies to intermittent wind and solar. Their calls for ‘immediate action’ really means more of the same: more subsidies for more windmills and more solar panels; which really means the end of reliable and affordable electricity.

Whatever your views on climate change (the apparently existential threat formerly known as ‘global warming’), the idea that trying to run modern, civil societies on sunshine and breezes might somehow prevent it is, of course, a complete nonsense.

One environmentalist who called it out, loud and early, was Michael Shellenberger. As a long-time advocate for reliable, affordable and safe nuclear energy, and critic of intermittent renewables – calling wind and solar worse than useless – Michael combines common sense, logic and reason, in an era when those attributes have become scarce commodities.

And The Winner Is…

The Lone Cactus

Helmut Norpoth is probably a name you don’t know offhand. It’s alright. He’s a professor at little Stony Brook University in Stony Brook, New York. There really wouldn’t be any reason for you to know Helmut unless you live in Stony Brook or went to that university and had him for a class. But he’s a pretty important guy when it comes to political science and presidential elections.

That’s because since 1912, his model as to who will win the election has been right 25 of 27 times. The only two times it’s failed was in 1960 when John F. Kennedy defeated Richard Nixon (he had Nixon winning), and in 2000 when George W. Bush won his first term (he had Al Gore winning).

What sets Helmut apart from everyone else is, he doesn’t care what the polls say. He cares what the primaries say. He says it’s all about…

Al Gore’s “Carbon Free” Is About Controlling The Private Sector

PA Pundits - International

By Peter Murphy~

Al Gore is the gift that keeps on giving – if you want to reveal the ongoing colossal banality and hypocrisy of the climate crisis movement that he has long championed. His latest example is trying to dress up like an expert on capitalism while actually pushing command and control policies on businesses to obey his climate agenda.

The former Vice President of the United States and his business partner David Blood co-authored an article last week in the Wall Street Journal purportedly about how the coronavirus opens the opportunity for better decision-making and corporate governance toward a zero carbon economy.

The article meanders for a while with buzzwords about how business and profitability gel with a climate change agenda, using words like “fiduciary duty,” “sustainable capitalism,” and “long-term perspective.”

The punch line of climate control arrives near the end, when the authors give away their…

PANIC! New TIME Cover Says 2020 Is ‘One Last Chance’ To Save Planet

PA Pundits - International

By Joseph Vazquez ~

It’s the end of civilization. Again.

Eco-extremists in the liberal media can’t even give themselves a 10-year gap for their end-of-the-world predictions.

The latest Time magazine cover declared that 2020 is our last, best chance to save the planet. Run for your lives!

Time announced the new cover on Twitter. The cover article was written by Justin Worland, the same author who co-wrote the “TIME 2019 Person of the Year: Greta Thunberg.” That piece claimed climate activist Thunberg was a “a pool of resolve at the center of swirling chaos.” [Emphasis added.]

In Time’s latest drivel, Worland exploited the coronavirus to push a climate change armageddon scenario:

2020 looks like the year when an unknown virus spun out of control, killed hundreds of thousands and altered the way we live day to day. In the future, we may look back at 2020…

There’s Nothing Depressing About Americans Buying Guns


By:                             Gabriella Hoffman

There’s Nothing Depressing About Americans Buying Guns

Just before our Independence Day celebration, British journalist Piers Morgan took to Twitter to complain about surging firearms sales here.

He tweeted, “BREAKING: Just when you thought the news couldn’t more depressing…8.3 million guns have been sold in the United States since March, meaning 2020 is on course to be the biggest year for gun sales in American history.”

Morgan, who once told Ben Shapiro our Constitution is a mere “little book,” isn’t the only one downplaying this incredible phenomenon. Gun control activists are touting a new UC-Davis study, absent of peer review and marked by faulty methodology, attributing historic numbers to “excess firearms purchases.”

What exactly is depressing about more Americans buying guns? How is responsible, law-abiding gun ownership “excessive”?

It’s wonderful to see more people—especially first-time buyers who are women…

‘Green’ Cult Chief Finally ‘Sees The Light’: And It’s Powered by Nuclear Energy


Which one works? Even XR members can spot the difference.

Extinction Rebellion’s pasty-faced and ghoulish-looking members aren’t renowned for their common sense on energy matters. But – in a road to Damascus moment – one of its leading lights, the aptly named Zion Lights has, indeed, seen the light. And it’s one powered by nuclear energy.

Instead of dressing up like an extra in a horror film and gluing herself to the road, Ms Lights has become an acolyte of, and advocate for, nuclear power, for all the right reasons.

Extinction Rebellion spokeswoman Zion Lights quits green movement to become lobbyist for nuclear power saying: ‘I changed my mind’

Extinction Rebellion’s spokeswoman has quit the protest group to become a nuclear power campaigner.

Zion Lights, 36, has left the climate change cause, which brought London to a standstill last year, to join pro-nuke…
