Police close Temple Mount
after firebomb attack  
by Khaled Abu Toameh
{jpost.com} ~ The police on Tuesday closed the entrances to the Temple Mount after violent clashes with dozens of Palestinians... Officials have said that the religious site will re-open tomorrow. The clashes erupted shortly before 2 pm after a fire erupted inside a police post on the compound, also known as Haram al-Sharif (Noble Sanctuary). Police said the fire was caused by a firebomb.  Some Palestinians, however, rejected the police account that the post was torched by a firebomb.  At least two eyewitnesses claimed that the fire was caused by children who were playing with fireworks.  This was not the first attack of its kind against the police post, which Palestinians see as a symbol of Israeli sovereignty over the Temple Mount.  In 1990, Palestinian rioters tried to attack a number of policemen who had barricaded themselves inside the post. The policemen managed to flee the scene and the rioters torched the post and damaged police equipment. In 2014, Palestinian rioters again torched the post after policemen who were stationed there were ordered by their commanders to leave out of fear for their lives...  https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/Riots-on-Temple-Mount-Palestinian...

Chuck scumbag-Schumer, Nancy Pulosi 
threaten Trump over proposed wall funding
by Jerry McCormick
{patriotnewsalerts.com} ~ The president is once again going to Congress to get money for a wall at the southern border worked into the budget... However, Trump has already been put on warning by both House Speaker Nancy Pulosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck scumbag-Schumer (D-NY) that “the same thing will repeat itself if he tries this again.” If U.S. politics were about the will of the American people, the wall would already be underway. However, by their own words, Democrats are doing nothing more than trying to flex their muscle.In a joint statement, scumbag-Schumer and Pulosi said of Trump: “We hoped he learned his lesson.” Last time we checked, politics is not supposed to be about teaching the president a lesson, but rather, representing the voters of this country. president Trump won the election on the premise he would build a wall. That very fact should be enough for these politicians to at least go back to their constituents to find out where they stand. Plus, support for Trump’s wall has been on the rise since he took office. Clearly more than half the people in this country want a wall, so we should be building one.So far, Congress has approved $1.4 billion for border security — but a stipulation in the budget states that the money cannot be used to build a solid structure. Trump is now asking for an additional $8 billion that he will pull from other agencies...
To Disarm North Korea, Hit
Hard on Human Rights
by Gordon G. Chang
{gatestoneinstitute.org} ~ "I'm in such a horrible position, because in one way I have to negotiate," U.S. President Donald Trump said at CPAC on March 2, while talking about efforts to disarm North Korea... "In the other way, I love Mr. and Mrs. Warmbier, and I love Otto." Trump believes he faces a dilemma: that his efforts on behalf of the parents of Otto Warmbier -- the University of Virginia student whom North Korean authorities detained, brutalized and killed -- undermine his ability to take away nuclear weapons from Kim Jong Un, the leader of that horrific regime. The president at CPAC summed up his perceived predicament this way: "It's a very, very delicate balance." But is there really a "delicate balance"? Trump and predecessors have thought they should not vigorously raise human rights concerns while negotiating on various matters with the ruling Kim dynasty of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK). American leaders have been wrong. The best way to get what we want from North Korea, whether it be "denuclearization" or anything else, is to reverse decades of Washington thinking and raise the issue of human rights loudly and incessantly. The same is true with regard to North Korea's sponsor and only formal ally, the People's Republic of China. The U.S. has deterred a general attack on South Korea since the armistice of July 1953, but apart from this achievement, American policy toward North Korea has been an abysmal failure. A destitute state has held the most powerful nation in history at bay, while getting away with, among other things, building weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and proliferating WMD technology and ballistic missiles...

Felicity Huffman, Lori Loughlin among 50
snared in elite college cheating
scam, authorities say
by Katherine Lam  
{foxnews.com} ~ Actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were among more than four dozen people charged in a nationwide college admissions cheating scandal... that involved wealthy individuals paying up to $6.5 million to place their children into elite universities, according to court records revealed Tuesday. The alleged scam -- which involved  students being placed into top colleges such as Yale, Georgetown, Stanford, University of Southern California, UCLA and the University of Texas -- was run by a man in California, William Rick Singer, who helped parents get their children into the schools through bribes, court documents unsealed in Boston showed. Officials have been investigating the scam for more than a year. Singer, who authorities said will plead guilty to racketeering, ran the charity, Key Worldwide Foundation, which received $25 million in total to guarantee the admissions, U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling said during a Tuesday news conference. The charitable foundation was used as a front to run the scam. "This is a case where they flaunted their wealth, sparing no expense to cheat to the system so they could set their children up for success with the best money can buy,” Joseph Bonavolonta from the FBI Boston Field Office said in a Tuesday news conference. Most of the students did not know their admission to the school was due to a bribe, authorities said. In some cases, however, the children and their parents all took part in the scam...  https://www.foxnews.com/us/college-entrance-exam-cheating

Rep. scumbag/mad-Maxine Waters says she 
has enough evidence to ‘impeach’ Trump
by Jerry McCormick
{patriotnewsalerts.com} ~ scumbag/mad-Waters has been after Donald Trump the moment he took the oath of office. She is one of the many Democrats in office who have been begging leadership to go after the president and impeach him... “I believe that we have everything that it needs to basically impeach him. I believe that,” she said. She is one of the many Democrats in office who have been begging leadership to go after the president and impeach him. “I believe that we have everything that it needs to basically impeach him. I believe that,” she said. Meanwhile, it is rather ironic that someone who many consider to be the most corrupt politician in office today is the one calling out Trump for corruption. Scandals have been tied to scumbag/mad-Waters from the very early days of her tenure in politics. While she talks about Trump family members and their business activities, scumbag/mad-Waters says nothing about the fact that her family members have gotten rich by working with and for businesses that have benefited from scumbag/mad-Waters’ actions while in office. To put it bluntly, scumbag/mad-Waters is the one that should be impeached — not Donald Trump...

Renewable Energy's Inconvenient Truths
Arnold Ahlert:  “He knows nothing; and he thinks he knows everything. That points clearly to a political career.” —George Bernard Shaw

Michael Shellenberger, a Time magazine “Hero of the Environment,” and president of the policy and research organization Environmental Progress, has some bad news for a lot of know-nothing Democrat politicians. After spending years dedicating his life to addressing climate change, he discovered  an inconvenient truth. “It gradually dawned on me that there was no amount of technological innovation that could solve the fundamental problem with renewables,” he reveals.

Unfortunately, for a Democrat Party determined to put ever-greater portions of American life under federal government  control, facts don’t matter. “This is the first time Democrats have decided to go on offense on climate change,” Sen. Chuck scumbag-Schumer (D-NY) laughably asserted last week.

That is, quite simply, a lie. In 2009, House Democrats passed The American Clean Energy and Security Act, sponsored by Reps. Henry Waxman (D-CA) and Ed Markey (D-MA). The so-called Waxman-Markey bill aimed to cut 2005 greenhouse-gas emissions level 17% by 2020, and 80% by 2050, via an economy-wide limit on carbon pollution. They were also on board with cap-and-trade, as in buying and selling pollution credits — while promoting renewable energy as a panacea. “We are now one step closer to delivering on the promise of a new clean energy economy that will make America less dependent on foreign oil, crack down on polluters, and create millions of new jobs all across America,” said Barack scumbag/liar-nObama in a written statement at the time.

The bill died in the Senate, where even Democrats had little enthusiasm for it. Moreover in stark contrast to scumbag/liar-nObama’s determination to “end the age of oil,” as he stated in 2007, the Trump administration’s America First energy policy has made our nation the world’s largest global crude-oil producer. And in 2018, American became a net oil exporter for the first time in 75 years.

The scumbag/liar-nObama administration also embraced a number of stimulus-backed, green-energy boondoggles that cost taxpayers billions of dollars. In 2012, The Daily Signal publisheda list of 34 taxpayer-supported entities that were failing, including 19 that had already filed for bankruptcy. Those bankruptcies reeked of crony capitalist corruption. The House Oversight Committee discovered that 22 out of 26 companies receiving Department of Energy loans had “JUNK” ratings — at the time they received the loans.

The “green jobs” initiative also ended in abysmal failure. A report issued by the Department of Labor inspector general revealed only 11,000 people were placed in permanent jobs, 16% of the original goal. The IG also discovered that grants for job creation went to entities like immigration activist group La Raza, which received $1.5 million — and created zero jobs.

All of this is worth remembering when one realizes that the Obama administration’s efforts pale in comparison to what today’s Democrats wish to inflict on America with their Green New Deal. Anyone who believes the latest Democrat effort to “save the planet” wouldn’t be exponentially greater than that of the Obama administration — in terms of cost, corruption and power consolidation — is delusional.

Yet those pesky facts illuminated by Shellenberger persist. Wind and solar? “Electricity from solar roofs costs about twice as much as electricity from solar farms, but solar and wind farms require huge amounts of land,” he explains. Further noting a transparently obvious reality that apparently eludes Democrats, he adds, “When the sun stops shining and the wind stops blowing, you have to quickly be able to ramp up another source of energy.”

In other words, despite all the wind and solar that might be produced, a backup system — or intermittent power outages — are the only choices available.

Converting dams into giant batteries? Geographic problems, expensive retrofits, and the competition for already scarce water resources needed for irrigation and drinking. Batteries per se? “Despite what you’ve heard, there is no ‘battery revolution’ on the way, for well-understood technical and economic reasons,” Shellenberger explains.

And then there’s sheer irony that arises when one group of dedicated environmentalists squares off against another. Building solar farms requires huge amounts of land — which have to be cleared of all animal life, even endangered species. Wind turbines “are the most serious new threat to important bird species to emerge in decades,” he notes.

What about the promised savings from solar panels and wind turbines decreasing in cost? “Between 2011-17 the cost of solar panels declined about 75 percent, and yet [California’s] electricity prices rose five times more than they did in the rest of the U.S.,” Shellenberger writes. “It’s the same story in Germany, the world leader in solar and wind energy. Its electricity prices increased 50 percent between 2006-17, as it scaled up renewables.”

So what’s the answer? Nuclear power. “Over the last several hundred years, human beings have been moving away from matter-dense fuels towards energy-dense ones,” he explains. “First we move from renewable fuels like wood, dung, and windmills, and towards the fossil fuels of coal, oil, and natural gas, and eventually to uranium.”

And despite everything American have been told, “the energy density of the fuel determines its environmental and health impacts,” Shellenberger asserts. “Spreading more mines and more equipment over larger areas of land is going to have larger environmental and human safety impacts.” By contrast, nuclear power is not only safer, the subsequent clearing of air pollution will “reduce how much we’ll heat up the planet.”

Nonetheless, as The New Republic’s Eric Armstrong puts it, the most “damaging and confounding fight” against scientific literacy “has been the left’s quixotic fight against nuclear power.” He adds, “There is a Shakespearean quality in the fact that one of the environmental movement’s biggest victories in the past 50 years — crippling the expansion of nuclear power — has actually done irreparable harm to the environment.”

Maybe that’s because Democrat Party environmentalism isn’t really about the environment. “Democrats see fighting climate change as a winning issue on the campaign trail — a way to mobilize not only young voters but also progressives, who are increasingly talking about the environment in terms of economic and social justice,” The New York Times explains.

Economic and social justice are propaganda terms use to obscure the real agenda of federal power consolidation, and ultimately the one-world governance epitomized by the Paris Climate Agreement, the one where “no major advanced industrialized country is on track to meet its pledges,” stated an analysis by Nature, an international science journal.

Yet Democrats would be wise to tread carefully. As “green” French President Emmanuel Macron learned, substance trumps style. Not only did France endure weeks of rioting precipitated by higher gas prices, populist resistance to French elitism soared. In other words, Democrats’ insistence on implementing their Liberty- and economy-crushing Green New Deal might just ensure Donald Trump’s reelection.

At the end of his piece, Shellenberger poses the ultimate question: “Now that we know that renewables can’t save the planet, are we really going to stand by and let them destroy it?”

scumbag-schumer doesn't realize the cost of housing an illegal compare to the cost of building a wall that will pay for itself. Its averaged about $52.000 per illegal and with millions trying asylum you are talking about billions upon billions.

Comment by Bonnie Somer on March 13, 2019 at 3:41am

1.4 bil for the wall that is spit in the ocean.   schumer once wanted more 

there are spots where there is nothing but open space that needs a giant wall.   the pres is right 

schumer and pillhead are idiots who could care less abt securing the country.    scold the pres he is not a child it is their job to do what he wants 8 bil is a drop in the bucked compared to their trillions of dollars budget

BREAKING:   Hillary Clinton Donor Ed Buck Arrested After Another Male Overdoses In His Seedy LA Apartment

Democrat donor and Hillary friend Ed Buck was finally arrested Tuesday night after a third man overdosed in his apartment.

The man who overdosed in Ed Buck’s Los Angeles apartment last week survived, however the other two victims previously died.

Ed Buck will be in court Wednesday.

Ed Buck loves to inject young black gay escorts with methamphetamine — the mother of one of Ed Buck’s victims described it as a fetish.

He was finally arrested after two black gay escorts died in his apartment from overdoses.

KTLA 5 reported:

The prominent Democratic donor and LGBTQ political activist Ed Buck was arrested Tuesday and charged with operating a drug house and providing methamphetamine to a 37-year-old man who overdosed last week, officials said.

Buck was charged with three counts of battery causing serious injury, administering methamphetamine and maintaining a drug house, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office. Buck is accused of injecting the victim, who survived, with methamphetamine on Sept. 11.

of another young black gay escort was found at the West Hollywood home of Ed Buck, a top Democrat donor and political activist.

As previously reported, a black gay escort named Gemmel Moore died of a meth overdose at Ed Buck’s West Hollywood home in July of 2017.

The LA County District Attorney’s Office previously declined to prosecute Ed Buck saying the evidence was “insufficient to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that (Buck) is responsible for the death of Gemmel Moore,” which sparked an outrage from family members and others in the community.

Jasmyne Cannick told FOX and Friends nearly a dozen black men have come forward to speak on their experiences with “serial predator” Ed Buck.
Cannick also went off on the Democrat Party: “Over 77% of black people in California vote Democratic. We vote for Democrats.

It is a shame that when something like this happens, when you have the chair of your state party when at the time of this , Eric Bauman, who was willing to turn a blind eye as well as instruct others not to speak on it. As a black woman, as a black Democrat, I expect more from my party.

Last week, a black male was seen entering Ed Buck’s seedy LA apartment.
