Michael Shellenberger — Why Renewables Can’t Save The Planet, And Nuclear Can

Environmentalists have long promoted renewable energy sources like solar panels and wind farms to save the climate. But what about when those technologies destroy the environment?
In this provocative talk, energy expert, Michael Shellenberger explains why solar and wind farms are not the best method of energy production, and describes an alternative path to saving both the climate and the natural environment — nuclear energy.

Michael gave this talk at a TEDx event.

(It was independently organized by a local community.)

  • Michael Shellenberger is a Time Magazine Hero of the Environment (in 2008 with Ted Nordhaus) and President of Environmental Progress — a research and policy organization.
    A lifelong environmentalist, Michael changed his mind about atomic energy and has helped save enough nuclear reactors to prevent an increase in carbon emissions equivalent to adding more than 24 million cars to the road.

Here’s more from Michael Shellenberger on the same topic.
Why I changed my mind about nuclear power.

  • TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment, and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.

President Donald Trump Accomplishments (2016-2019)

President Trump keeps kicking butt.

Twitter user Robby Starbuck has compiled a long list of President Trump 2016 – 2019 accomplishments. You can download a PDF file and print it out.

President Trump Accomplishments – PDF format

It is hard to believe that someone who is continually under attack by the deep state was able to achieve so much. The fact that he’s still able to function is shocking to people who expected him gone before the end of the first year in office.

Rep. Gohmert And Greg Jarrett On Hannity With Tammy Bruce

Congressman Louie Gohmert and author of “Witch Hunt” and ” The Russia Hoax ” — Gregg Jarrett share their opinion on Speaker Pelosi’s refusal to send the articles of impeachment to the Senate and President Trump exposing the extent of Deep State Corruption.

Tammy Bruce is filling in for Sean Hannity.

With guests: Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert and Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett.

The last thought.

So, Pelosi and Democrats have rushed through “impeachment proceedings” like there was no tomorrow, and then they decided to put the “indictment” in a drawer and take a vacation.

In other words, grand jury (the House) agreed that there’s enough evidence to indict (send articles of impeachment to the Senat), but the prosecutor (the Speaker) decided to sit on it and don’t indict.

It seems that technically speaking, pres. Trump hasn’t been impeached yet.

Rand Paul Makes Case Against Socialism On Stossel TV

You would think that … when your economy gets to the point where people are eating their pets, people might have second thoughts about what economic system they’ve chosen.

Rand Paul

Rand Paul takes on socialist arguments about Venezuela and Scandinavia.

Published on Tuesday, December 17, 2019
by John Stossel (Stossel TV)

Senator Bernie Sanders said:

When I talk about democratic socialism, I’m not looking at Venezuela. I’m not looking at Cuba. I’m looking at countries like Denmark and Sweden.

The problem with his statement is that socialist ideas do not govern those countries. Denmark and Sweden are free-market economies. Denmark’s prime minister, when visiting America, refuted Sanders’ claims, saying:

Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy.

Then he added that his country is now a

Successful market economy with much freedom to pursue your dreams and live your life…

A market economy with the freedom to pursue your dreams. That’s not socialism. Word “Freedom” is not part of the socialist vocabulary. It was replaced with the word “Obey.”

Sen. Ted Cruz On Impeachment: Legitimate Process Or Partisan Weapon?

Sen. Ted Cruz at The Heritage Foundation explains how the impeachment process has been weaponized against President Trump.

Streamed live on Dec 17, 2019
by The Heritage Foundation

It is paramount that a presidential impeachment is fair, legitimate, and minimize partisanship. Sen. Ted Cruz uses common sense and some humor to illustrate how Democrats in the House of Representatives turned the entire impeachment process on its head.

Impeachment in a nutshell.

That’s what it is all about — hurt feelings.

Jeff Van Drew Switched to Republican Party

Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey — an anti-impeachment Democrat — switched parties Thursday (12 December 2019) to join the GOP. The day earlier, he voted against both articles of impeachment.

Congressman Jeff Van Drew is very popular in our great and very united Republican Party. It was a tribute to him that he was able to win his heavily Republican district as a Democrat. People like that are not easily replaceable!

Pres. Donald Trump

One in the can. More to come?

On Thursday, Van Drew pledged his “undying” support to Trump, and the President endorsed him. But even he declared to be Republican now, his past — like, for example, voting record — is very democrat. He has voted against Trump about 90% of the time.

Rep. Van Drew still has a year to prove what side he’s on, but it’s highly unlikely that he will not have to face some other Republican in primaries. Businessman David Richter has his eye set on Van Drew’s congressional seat.

Van Drew has said that he’s well-positioned to keep his seat, claiming that about 70% of his district approves of him switching parties. Democrats, of course, are not impressed with this statement and are gearing for the fight. Brigid Harrison (political science professor at Montclair State University), announced that she would run, and she isn’t the only one considering getting into the race.

Van Drew is the 10th member of Congress to switch parties in the past 20 years.
Six Democrats went Republican,
three Republicans decided to go from red to blue,
and one Republican declared himself independent.

Rush Limbaugh: My Articles of Impeachment for the Next Democrat President

RUSH: Over the Christmas break, I’m gonna be sitting down with Republican leaders and drawing up articles of impeachment for the next Democrat president.

Source: My Articles of Impeachment for the Next Democrat President

This situation is insane.

Democrats managed to drag down the standards for impeachment to such a low level that from now on, any president will be facing the possibility of being impeached for any stupid reason the opposite political party in charge of the House will come up with.

The next Impeached president will be indicted for wearing his pants too high and eating breakfast too early, which, according to the U.S. Congress, will create a severe threat to the security of the United States.

Pres. Trump Impeached

Today, on December 18, 2019, Democrats in Congress voted Donald Trump to his second term as the president of the United States.

Thank You!

It doesn’t really feel like we’re being impeached. The country is doing better than ever before. We did nothing wrong. And we have tremendous support in the Republican party like we have never had before. Nobody has ever had this kind of support.

Donald Trump

The vote.

Abuse of power:
the count was 230-197 to impeach.

Obstruction of Congress:
the count was 229-198 to impeach.

Rep. Jeff Van Drew of New Jersey
Rep. Collin Peterson of Minnesota
voted with Republicans against both articles of impeachment
Rep. Jared Golden of Maine
voted yes on abuse of power and no on obstruction of Congress.
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted present.

No Republicans voted against Trump.

By Democrats’ standards, opposition to impeachment was heavily bipartisan.

The last thought on impeachment.

No last thought…
No last thought for a simple reason.
No one reasonable gives damn about this fiasco.
