Today (Monday, 10/26/2020), Judge Amy Coney Barrett received a vote on the Senate floor to confirm her as one of nine Supreme Court Justices of the United States.
The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals judge and Notre Dame law professor is the third appointment to the High Court by President Trump. Barrett was sworn-in by Justice Clarence Thomas and became the fifth woman ever to serve on the Court.
The oath that I have solemnly taken tonight means at its core that I will do my job without any fear or favor, and that I will do so independently of both the political branches and of my own preferences.
Using multiple video clips, The Remnant editor — Michael J Matt, shows how everyone from Soros, to Gates, to Schwab, to Al Gore and the Secretary-General of the United Nations, are only too eager to admit that Covid-19 offers them a rare opportunity to reset the World.
The World’s elites are not shy about their intentions to use the COVID-19 pandemic to reorganize the world order. They want to:
The world must act jointly and swiftly to revamp all aspects of our societies and economies, from education to social contracts and working conditions. Every country, from the United States to China, must participate, and every industry, from oil and gas to tech, must be transformed.
It looks like the World’s elites are in the process of dividing the history timeline into pre-COVID-pandemic and post-COVID-pandemic eras. Whatever was created before the pandemic needs to be destroyed, and then, the leftists will rebuild the World according to their new and better standards.
For the left, the COVID-19 crisis has created a “golden opportunity” to “improve the state of the World.“ For the rest of us…, well, the rest of us wants to live our lives in peace without being forced to follow the rules imposed on us by the self-proclaimed intellectual aristocracy.
After Facebook and Twitter took action to limit the distribution of New York Post’s story on Hunter Biden e-mails and the enormous backlash it created against those social media platforms, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai releases the following statement [PDF file]:
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai’s statement on Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.
“Members of all three branches of the federal government have expressed serious concerns about the prevailing interpretation of the immunity set forth in Section 230 of the Communications Act. There is bipartisan support in Congress to reform the law. The U.S. Department of Commerce has petitioned the Commission to ‘clarify ambiguities in section 230.’ And earlier this week, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas pointed out that courts have relied upon ‘policy and purpose arguments to grant sweeping protections to Internet platforms’ that appear to go far beyond the actual text of the provision.
“As elected officials consider whether to change the law, the question remains: What does Section 230 currently mean? Many advance an overly broad interpretation that in some cases shields social media companies from consumer protection laws in a way that has no basis in the text of Section 230. The Commission’s General Counsel has informed me that the FCC has the legal authority to interpret Section 230. Consistent with this advice, I intend to move forward with a rulemaking to clarify its meaning.
“Throughout my tenure at the Federal Communications Commission, I have favored regulatory parity, transparency, and free expression. Social media companies have a First Amendment right to free speech. But they do not have a First Amendment right to a special immunity denied to other media outlets, such as newspapers and broadcasters.”
In addition to Chairman Ajit Pai’s statement, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Thursday that the Senate Judiciary Committee plans to subpoena Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey.
Republican senators are calling on Dorsey to testify on October 23rd to give him a chance to explain the decision to limit the spread of New York Post articles about Hunter Biden and why it shouldn’t be viewed as an attempt in election interference.
You drive an electric car. You feel good about yourself. You’re saving the environment, so we all can bread cleaner, healthier air. Well. Not really.
California, the sixth-largest economy globally, emits only 1% of the world’s carbon emissions. Still, the governor — Gavin Newsom — wants to ban gas-powered cars in his state by 2035 in favor of clean, “zero-emissions” electric cars. But. Do electric cars help the environment? Bjørn Lomborg explains the dirty secret of the clean auto-industry.
The most popular electric car, the Nissan Leaf, over a 90,000-mile lifetime, will emit 31 metric tons of CO2 based on emissions from its production, its electricity consumption, and average U.S. fuel mix and its ultimate scrapping. A comparable Mercedes CDI A160 over a similar lifetime will emit just three tons more across its production, diesel consumption, and ultimate scrapping. The results are similar for a top-line Tesla, the king of electric cars. It emits about 44 tons, which is only 5 tons less than a similar Audi A7 Quattro.
During an interview with — a five-time Marconi Award winner — Rush Limbaugh, President Trump told the radio host that Iran knows not to “f**k around” with the United States, due to the response it would invoke.
Of course, many more topics (not just Iran) were covered in the nearly two hours the president spent on Rush Limbaugh’s show. An estimated 50 million audience members tuned-in to listen and participate.
According to California governor Gavin Newsom, the massive, deadly wildfires in America’s West are caused by climate change. In reality, poor forest management and excessive regulation are bigger causes. Michael Shellenberger explains.
Government fueled fires.
I like these short, no-nonsense videos by John Stossel. In this video, he uses the help of Michael Shellenberger, the ecologist, once named “The Hero of the Environment” by Time Magazine, to explain the connection between brush fires, climate change, and some small —often overlooked — thing called forest management.
Mike is a dedicated ecologist, but it is clear that he’s not a member of the alarmist group. He believes that climate change is real, but disagrees that this is our most serious problem.
Climate change is real, [but] it’s not the end of the world. It’s not our most serious environmental problem.
Is devastation the key to happiness?
For some people, it is.
It’s stunning how California’s governor uses fire devastation in his state as a backdrop for his happy climate change announcement, where, with a grin on his face, he calls it a perfect storm and states that:
The debate is over around climate change.
Because California wildfires are undoubtedly caused by climate change, and if you don’t believe it, the governor wants you to:
Just come to the state of California. Observe it with your own eyes.
Observe what? All the destruction caused by climate-change-activist and supporting them bureaucrats, who for decades prevented proper forest management?
Thank you for the invitation, but no thanks. Watching people’s houses turned to ashes is not my kind of fun.
This year wildfires have burned more than four million acres (two million acres last year), and we still have three months to go.
