House Republicans To Launch Climate Caucus After Biden Claims Global Warming Is Greatest Threat To American Security

House Republicans are preparing to launch a caucus designed to educate members on the effects of climate change.

The effort, led by Representative John Curtis (R-UT), will, according to The Hill, “give members information and new strategies for how to talk about” climate change and “possibly even change some minds” on the topic.

The climate caucus reportedly already has 45 members.

Curtis says he is seeking bipartisan solutions on matters such as limiting greenhouse gasses in other countries and supporting nuclear power.

Still, he believes other less popular options for the GOP “should be on the table.”

“I didn’t really know what solutions were good solutions. I didn’t know which ones I could support,” said Curtis.

“It felt like, and I think a lot of Republicans feel this way, I had to endorse the Green New Deal if I was going to … be part of the solution, and a lot of Republicans find that troubling.”

Climate Caucus After Biden Declares Global Warming America’s Greatest Threat

President Biden, during a speech to Air Force personnel in the United Kingdom earlier this month, warned that global warming is the “greatest threat” facing America and that it is “not a joke.”

Biden claimed he was told this by Pentagon officials when he was serving alongside Barack Obama in 2009.

“When I went over to the tank in the Pentagon when I was first was elected vice president with President Obama, the military sat us down and let us know what the greatest threats facing America were, the greatest physical threats,” he told those in attendance.

“This is not a joke,” he insisted. “You know what the Joint Chiefs told us the greatest physical threat facing America was? Global warming.”

Curtis has been seeking to get his GOP colleagues to take the matter of climate change more seriously for some time now.

“This is a Republican bread and butter issue,” he said at a climate change town hall last September. “We care about the Earth, now let’s show it.”

“We have to stop being so afraid of this conversation,” he insisted.

“We’ve got good answers. We’ve got answers that don’t kill the economy. We’ve got answers that can be bipartisan,” Curtis said. “We’re in this. We want to be part of this.”

Curtis Sought to Censure Trump

On Tuesday, The Political Insider reported that wildfires in California, something Democrats have consistently blamed on climate change despite their existence throughout history, are being fought through billions of dollars in funding meant to clear out forest floors.

Perhaps that topic will be addressed in the new Republican climate caucus.

Clearing forest floors to combat wildfires in California is something that was frequently suggested by former President Donald Trump.

He was ridiculed for such suggestions.

Curtis, shortly after the Capitol protest on January 6th, introduced a resolution to censure and condemn Trump.

“The events at the Capitol last week were abhorrent; all those involved must be held accountable, including President Trump,” he said at the time.

“Censuring the President and making it clear that Congress does not support any level of his involvement in the riots nor any attempts to undermine an election is a critical step in holding him accountable as more facts continue to unfold,” added Curtis.

The Utah Republican voted against impeachment, however, citing a lack of time for a full inquiry.

Lara Trump Calls Out AOC And Democrats For Hypocrisy On Border Crisis

Fox News contributor Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump, just called out Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for their hypocrisy regarding the border crisis that many say was created by Joe Biden.

Lara Trump Sounds Off

“We had the most secure border under my father-in-law, under President Donald Trump that we have had in decades, and I think the best thing possible is to discourage people from making that really dangerous, awful journey north through our southern border,” Trump said.

“The problem is that the Biden administration has said, ‘Well, if they come, we’ll take you in,’ So guess what’s going to continue to happen,” she added. “You’re going to continue to have all of these children, you know, flooding our southern border.”

“It is so sad. It is so hard to watch, but we have to get this under control,” Trump continued. “This is not fair to these kids. It’s not fair to Americans who are footing the bill now. $86 million to pay for hotel rooms for illegal immigrants.”

“People that are breaking our law, coming to America, we are paying $86 million for hotel rooms,” she said. “It is totally unacceptable, but you know what? We don’t expect to see that change because this seems almost like it’s part of the Biden plan, sadly.”

Trump Doubles Down

Not stopping there, Trump went on to call out the “total hypocrisy” that is happening here.

“It’s total hypocrisy. You bring up a great point,” she continued. “The way they covered this under the Trump administration versus the Biden administration is total hypocrisy.”

“Where is the outrage from the folks on the left? Where is AOC down there doing a photo op crying in front of a wall?” Trump said. “Because I have news for her, it’s much worse right now than it ever was under the Trump administration, yet it has been crickets from those folks. I think it tells a very scary story.”

‘They know that they have millions of illegal immigrants coming to America,” she added. “They are trying to change our voting laws. They are hoping one day that all of these folks can go in and vote with no ID because that’s one of the things in HR-1 that they are proposing.”

“These are their new voters, and it is a terrifying prospect,” Trump concluded. “If we let everybody flee flow over our southern border guys, we lose our country. It is a very, very scary thing going on.”

George Washington Should Be Celebrated, Not Canceled – A President’s Day Reminder

George Washington is the United States of America’s first president and the father of our country. 

He is a man of legendary stature around the entire globe for his wisdom and bravery.

But today, many on the far-left believe he should be canceled – erased from American culture and history.

It’s incumbent on patriotic Americans to rise to this challenge, and celebrate Washington more than ever.

Tearing Down Washington

In June 2020, George Washington was the top trending topic on Twitter after his statue was toppled in Portland, Oregon.

The next day, his statue was also defaced in Baltimore’s Druid Hill Park.

There are more examples of leftist attacks on Washington as a symbol of our country and Founding Father. I will spare you the gory details.

Schools named after Washington in various U.S. cities and towns are dropping the name as citizens kowtow to an outrageous and radical “woke” left.

The head of one private all-female prep middle school and high school, Harpeth Hall, in Nashville, Tennessee said that the school’s annual reflection on Washington was “not consistent with or relevant to the way that we teach history today.”

Pure nonsense.

The Greatness Of Washington

Washington helped win the Revolutionary War and served as the first Commander-in-Chief, but there is even more to his grand legacy.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute’s John Berlau’s book “George Washington: Entrepreneur: How Our Founding Father’s Private Business Pursuits Changed America and the World” explains how George Washington paved the way for American innovation and dynamism through his business ventures and support of early American inventors.

Berlau explains, “I reveal how excessive British regulation was a big factor in turning him toward revolution.” 

Obviously American independence was crucial to our budding nation. But Berlau also explains how Washington spoke out against the bigots of his time.

“I also show how Washington crusaded against bigotry toward Catholics and Jews and eventually turned against slavery—speaking out against it frequently in letters and freeing all his enslaved workers in his will,” Berlau writes.

On the Harpeth Hall school controversy, Berlau said, “I think it’s very sad but unfortunately typical of what’s going on in the rest of the country.”

He added, “If I were a parent with a student at that school, I would be very disappointed that they were not giving my child a well-rounded education.”

“Washington wasn’t perfect, and It’s fine to teach criticism of him and the other Founding Fathers, but this school official actually says learning about him is irrelevant,” Berlau continued.

If You Cancel Washington, You Might As Well Cancel America Entirely

“But of course, George Washington is relevant if you live in this country, being the father of this country and someone who set up the American system,” he noted. “He took the unheard step of voluntarily giving up power both after the war for independence and then as president, setting the American precedent of peaceful transition of power.”

Berlau emphasized how crucial Washington was for setting the original pace of American values like ingenuity and striving for improvement.

“George Washington was also responsible in many ways for setting up America’s tradition of innovation,” he said. “He was an innovator himself.”

RELATED: Here Are the 6 Republicans Who Voted That Trump’s Impeachment Trial Is Constitutional

“Making new plows and creating things like a 16-sided barn. He was the first to bring mules to America. And introducing crop rotation,” he explained.

“Giving up tobacco when he found it was harmful to soil, and planting new crops like weed and hemp,” Berlau continued. “And he was a patron of American inventors both as a private citizen and a president.”

“There are so many things I think that are inspiring today about both George and Martha,” Berlau finished.

I’ve only scratched the surface here. Readers can learn much more in books, like those of Berlau and Ron Chernow.

George Washington should never be canceled. And for those who believe otherwise, you might as well cancel the rest of America too.

Lindsey Graham Rips Impeachment – ‘We’re Doing A Lot Of Damage To The Country Because People Hate Trump’

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) spoke out on Monday night to rip into Democrats for their impeachment effort against former President Donald Trump.

Graham Rips Democrats Over Impeachment

While appearing on “Hannity” on Fox News, Graham complained about having to participate in the impeachment trial at all.

“I got to listen to this crap,” Graham said. “So, I hope by Sunday or Monday, the trial will be over. Here’s what I can tell you — if the House managers want to call one witness, the defense is going to call all the people you named and then some.”

“To my colleagues tomorrow, there are a hundred of us, what we do today is going to make history of the time America exists,” he added. “What Democrats have done is basically declared war on the presidency itself. The impeachment in House took place without a hearing, without one witness being called, and without a lawyer for the president of the United States.”

“You can’t get a traffic ticket based on the producers they used to impeach President Trump,” Graham continued. “And we’re also impeaching a man who’s out of office. When you combine a snap impeachment with an impeachment of a president who’s out of office, you’re going to destroy the presidency itself.”

“I know you hate Trump but please, pull back before we set in motion this destruction of the presidency by never-ending impeachments based on lack of due process and political retribution as the motive,” he said.

Related: Lindsey Graham Teaming With Dick Durbin To Introduce Legislation That Could Grant Citizenship To DREAMers

Graham Doubles Down

Not stopping there, Graham went on to argue that in impeaching a former president, the Democrat-controlled Congress was creating a new precedent.

“I think you’ll see statements by politicians that are more insightful than what President Trump said,” he predicted. “But when the Founders created impeachment for the president, it was different than for judges and anybody else. It requires that the chief justice of the United States to preside over presidential impeachments. Why? Because you don’t want a juror preceding over the impeachment of a presidential officeholder.”

“So the idea that the president is treated differently under the Constitution makes perfect sense,” Graham said. “They never envisioned going after the president once he’s out of office because the purpose for impeachment is to remove the person, not bar them from running in the future.”

“So, the whole point of impeachment is lost when the person is no longer in office,” Graham continued. “They didn’t go after Nixon when he resigned for a reason. So to my colleagues here, you’re about to set in motion a historical precedent that will put at risk every future president.”

“You could be impeached in the future based on hatred, 50 hours no witness, no hearing, no lawyer,” he concluded. “You can be impeached after you leave office. George Washington, under this theory, can be impeached for owning slaves. We’re doing a lot of damage to the country because people hate Trump. Knock it off.”

Schumer Discusses Making DC A State – We’ll Get ‘Big Bold Change…No Matter What’

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) spoke out over the weekend to ominously say that Democrats will get “big, bold change” “no matter what” as he called on his party to tackle issues like “improving our democracy. Making D.C. a state, automatic voter registration.”

Schumer Speaks Out About Future 

Schumer said this during an interview with Reverend Al Sharpton on MSNBC on Saturday.

“Well, Rev., we have one goal: big, bold change in America,” Schumer said. “We would like the Republicans to join us in some of those things at least, and maybe they will. But we are going to get that change no matter what.”

“We cannot — there is such a demand, three huge issues we have to do: climate, huge issue facing the country, racial and economic inequality, which has gotten worse, not better, which demands change and justice in a big, bold way, and improving our democracy,” he added.

“Making D.C. a state, automatic voter registration, getting rid of Citizens United, all the things embodied in H.R. 1, which the House passed and McConnell would block up, but we’re going to fight to pass it in the Senate,” Schumer continued.

“That’s why we’ve made it S 1. So, climate, racial inequality, economic inequality, and democracy, improving our democracy, letting people vote much more easily, dealing with D.C. and Puerto Rican statehood, dealing with bad money that flows in,” he said.

“The John Lewis Act, undoing the horrible decisions the court made, which defanged the Voting Rights Act, and that’s why Republicans have gotten away with taking people’s right away to vote for the last four years,” he added.

‘What About The Filibuster’ 

“What about the filibuster?” Sharpton asked.

“Well, as I’ve said, we will find a way to do big, bold change,” Schumer replied. “And our caucus will sit down and figure it out, but failure is not an option. We must create change.”

Democrats now have control of the presidency, the Senate, and the House. It remains to be seen what changes that they will bring about for our country in the next few years.

Mitt Romney Suggests Trump Impeachment Necessary For ‘Unity In Our Country’

Republican Senator Mitt Romney suggested Sunday that impeaching former President Donald Trump could bring national unity.

The “Never Trump” Senator made his comments on “Fox News Sunday” with host Chris Wallace.

Watch the interview below.

Romney Argues Senate Trial Necessary For Unity

Wallace asked Romney, “Senator, do you support holding this impeachment trial, and what do you think the rules should be on the length of the trial and whether or not to call witnesses?”

Romney replied, “Well, we’re certainly going to have a trial. I wish that weren’t necessary, with the president’s conduct with regard to the call to the secretary of state in Georgia as well as the incitation towards the insurrection that led to the attack on the Capital calls for a trial.”

Then the anti-Trump Republican suggested that the impeachment could bring more unity for the U.S.

“If we are going to have unity in our country, I think it’s important to recognize the need for accountability, for truth, and justice,” Romney said.

Romney: ‘Pretty Clear’ Trump Spent A Year Trying To ‘Corrupt The Election’

He added, “So I think there will be a trial, and I hope it goes as quickly as possible, but that’s up to the council on both sides.”

Romney said it has been “pretty clear” over the last year and Trump had been trying to corrupt the election.

“I think it’s pretty clear that over the last year or so there has been an effort to corrupt the election of the United States and it was not by President Biden, it was by President Trump and that corruption we saw with regards to the conduct in Ukraine as well as the call to Secretary of state Raffensperger as well as the in citation to insurrection.”

Romney has a long history of anti-Trump sentiment.

Romney was the only Republican Senator to vote to convict President Trump during the first impeachment trial. 

In 2016, Romney famously gave a “Never Trump” speech when it became clear that Trump was likely to win the Republican nomination for President.

Maxine Waters Warns Trump May Want ‘Civil War’ – Wants Him ‘Stopped Dead In His Tracks, However We Do It’

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) spoke out on Friday to nonsensically warn that Donald Trump may try to start a “Civil War,” adding that he “has got to be stopped dead in his tracks,” whether it’s by impeachment or by invoking the 25th Amendment.

Waters Demands Investigation Into Capitol Police

Waters, who is chair of the House Financial Services Committee, has also called for an investigation to be launched into the U.S. Capitol Police’s failure to stop Wednesday’s riot at the Capitol building.

“There’s got to be prosecutions. There’s got to be accountability,” Waters said while appearing on “The Joe Madison Show” on SiriusXM.

“And of course, this president, who has lied his way all the way up, until this insurrection that he has caused, and the fact that we all, many of us believe he is trying to create a civil war, has got to be stopped dead in his tracks, however we can do it: whether it is Amendment 25 or whether it is a new way by bringing him up before the Congress,” Waters continued. 

The 25th Amendment allows for a president to be removed from office if the Vice President and the majority of the cabinet deem him incapable of carrying out the job, according to The Washington Times.

Not stopping there, Waters also slammed U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund, who has already handed in his resignation. She said that she had already specifically asked Sound about security.

“[Sund] was telling us that he had it all under control. It turned out he had nothing under control. Nothing under control. And we were overrun,” said Waters.

“The Capitol of the United States of America, one of the most supposedly secure buildings in the country, was breached, and with them climbing the wall it looked like a Third World country overtake of the government,” she added.

She went on to add that she was afraid of snipers, so she asked him about the top of the buildings.

“[Y]ou know what I was thinking about? I was thinking about John Kennedy and Martin Luther King in opposite buildings and windows near the top of those buildings, and how they target people and they snipe and they could kill people,” she said. “And that’s what really was on my mind. I asked him about all of that.”

MSNBC Host Joy Reid Claims Tight Presidential Race Shows America’s ‘Great Amount Of Racism And Anti-Blackness’

MSNBC host Joy Reid launched a truly vile attack on America on Wednesday night, claiming that the fact that the presidential race between Joe Biden and Donald Trump is so close shows just how “racist” our country is.

Reid Attacks America As Racist 

“I think partly because we knew the red wave was a thing, the red mirage, I should say, we all knew it was coming,” Reid told Rachel Maddow. “In the moment, it’s aggravating.”

“And I think partly — and I said this last night — I do think it’s because we’ve been reporting for five years, Rachel, about Russia … undermining our national security, the impeachment, the racism, the Nazis, all of it and then COVID laying on top of it, [it] felt like a repudiation was coming,” Reid continued. 

“I think even though we intellectually understand what America is at its base, right?” she added. “That there is a great amount of racism, anti-blackness, anti-wokeness, this idea that political correctness is some scheme to destroy white America, right?”

RELATED: MSNBC’s Joy Reid Claims Trump Supporters are Racists Who Revolted Against ‘Smart People’

Reid Doubles Down

Not stopping there, Reid continued to shame America like it’s her job, which it arguably is given the fact that she works for MSNBC.

“We know what this country is, but still part of you, I think part of your heart says, you know what, maybe the country’s going to pay off all of this pain, the children that were stolen, with a repudiation,” she said.

“And as the night wore on and I realized and it sunk in, OK, that’s not happening, we are still who we thought, unfortunately,” Reid added. “It’s disappointing. And I emerged from this disappointed.”

Reid’s Racist Attack On Clarence Thomas

This came after Reid was hit with backlash for calling black Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas “Uncle Clarence” in an apparent reference to Uncle Tom.

Also on Wednesday, Reid said that if election litigation makes it to the Supreme Court, “do any of you guys trust Uncle Clarence and Amy Coney Barrett and those guys to actually follow the letter of the law? No.”

Her full comment was that it is:

“not exactly clear that we can trust Amy Coney Barrett and Kavanaugh and these others not to be just like Bill Barr. And so, I think what scares people is that if…somehow they manage to stumble into the Supreme Court, do any of you guys trust Uncle Clarence and Amy Coney Barrett and those guys to actually follow the letter of the law? No.

I mean, it is a completely politicized Supreme Court that you can’t just trust that they’re going to do the right thing. Now, so far the courts have actually been pretty good. So, we’ll see.”

Chris Rock Blasts President On ‘SNL’ – ‘Trump Is In The Hospital With COVID…My Heart Goes Out To COVID’

While hosting the season premiere of “Saturday Night Live” last night, the comedian Chris Rock used his opening monologue to take a shot President Donald Trump over his COVID-19 diagnosis.

Rock Mocks Trump’s COVID Diagnosis

Rock described the president’s diagnosis as the “elephant in the room” before adding that his heart went out to COVID, referring to Trump’s medical condition.

Before we even get started, let’s — you know, hey, the elephant in the room: President Trump’s in the hospital from COVID, and I just want to say my heart goes out to COVID,” Rock said. “This is a special show this show is quite different than every other show.”

“There are so many protocols — everybody in this audience has been checked, and all week I’ve had things going up my nose,” he added. “Every day I come in here — I haven’t had so much stuff up my nose since I shared a dressing room with Chris Farley.”

“Now, you know,  the world is insane right now,” the comedian added. “But one thing we can agree upon, COVID, has ruined our plans. We all used to have plans before COVID. Remember we all used to have plans?”

“My sister was getting married, man,” Rock said. “I paid Bel Biv Devoe $80,000, man. And I can’t get it back. I had tickets to Coachella, man. I know 200,000 Americans are dead, but I’m not seeing Rage Against the Machine this year, man. That is a travesty.”

RELATED: Chris Rock Says Democrats ‘Let The Pandemic Come In’ While They Were Obsessed With Impeachment

Rock Talks American Government

Later in his monologue, Rock said that everything that has happened as of late should make America rethink its relationship with government.

“I think Joe Biden should be the last president ever,” Rock said. “I mean, do we even need a president president?”

“I mean, what job do you have for four years no matter what?” he asked. “Show me one job. Like if you hired a cook and he was making people vomit every day, do you sit there and go, ‘Well, he’s got a four-year deal. We’ve just got to vomit for four more years.’”

“You realize there’s more rules to a game show than running for president? Like Donald Trump left a game show to run for president because it was easier,” Rock joked. “You can’t just throw your son on Jeopardy, or your son-in-law. Steve Harvey can’t put his family on Family Feud.”

3,300 Volunteers From 52 Nations Sign Up Coronavirus Vaccine Trials

Everyone has felt the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic’s effects across the entire globe.

You’ve witnessed the world’s economy come to a halt, seen 30-plus million Americans unemployed, felt the economy contract by nearly five percent in the first quarter of 2020, and stay-at-home orders being issued to curb the spread preventing hospitals from being overrun.

MORE NEWS: ‘Charmed’ Star Holly Marie Combs Blames Trump For Her Grandpa Dying Of COVID – Calls President A’ Disgrace To Humanity’

The results? The Coronavirus death curve has flattened for the US-based outbreak, even in New York City, which many called ground zero. Many feel that for most of the country, the roadmap to re-opening should occur as soon and as safely as possible.

WILL THERE BE SETBACKS?

Of course. The reason? We still don’t have a vaccine. But wait, now we are learning that more than 3,300 people from 52 nations — including at least two Stanford grads have signed up to be vaccinated and deliberately exposed to the new virus. The group 1DaySooner organized the campaign.

via Mercury News

The effort was launched by Josh Morrison of Brooklyn, New York, a Harvard-educated attorney who founded Waitlist Zero, a nonprofit organization that seeks to ease kidney donation. In 2011, he donated a kidney to a stranger, accepting a small risk of death to save a life. A readily available COVID-19 vaccine, he reasoned, could save far more lives.

Traditionally, a vaccine is proven effective after comparison of cases in hundreds or thousands of individuals who randomly receive vaccine or placebo. That process takes a long time, because it must wait for natural infection.

The premise of a “human challenge” study is to infect a smaller number of vaccinated people who are young and healthy, accelerating testing and giving manufacturing a head start. A “challenge” study takes advantage of the low death rate for those infected by SARS-CoV-2 — about 0.03% for 20-29 year olds and 0.085% for 30-39 year olds according to data from China — not negligible but very uncommon for those likely to be eligible to participate.

Such studies put volunteers at potential risk of disease and death. There is no “rescue” therapy to treat them if they get sick. The long-term effects are unknown.  Yet they’re willing to help anyway. [Mercury News]

MORE NEWS: Schiff And Pelosi Launch ‘Impeachment 2.0’

BELIEVE IT OR NOT, THIS IS HEROIC

I assume this usually happens when a new vaccine is tested. This is especially heroic when dealing with a hazardous disease.

Who are these 3,000 people? You do know you’re going into a governmental trial, right! Meaning they can put a chip in you or do anything to you! I want to see all these lemmings.

Serious illness and death from Covid-19 in healthy individuals under 60 are rare, but it has happened. It is estimated that it can kill around 0.5% healthy individuals in this bracket.

Potentially sacrificing yourself for the welfare of others is called bravery, and hopefully, nothing wrong happens to these kids.

I tell you what I’ll struggle to listen to the advice of any medical expert in the media ever again after all this. Every possible wild option and scheme has been thrown out there by people who are supposed to be in the same field and had the same training.
