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.

Greta Thunberg Ominously Claims AOC’s Green New Deal Is ‘Very Far From Being Enough’

The teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg, who hails from Sweden, went on MSNBC on Friday to claim that the radically liberal Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) Green New Deal is “very far from being enough” when it comes to fighting climate change.

Thunberg Talks Green New Deal

“How can we expect people will want climate action?” Thunberg said. “How can we expect people to support any kind of action when the general public welcome awareness is so low when it comes to the climate. We have not been made aware of what is happening because the climate crisis has never once has been treated as a crisis. So how can we expect a to happen when we aren’t treating this crisis like a crisis.”

“The Green New Deal obviously it’s not — if you include crucial aspects like the aspect of equity and so on it is very, very far from being enough, from being in line with the Paris agreement and so on,” she added. “That’s not my opinion if people may think that, but it at least gets the discussion going.”

“We can’t negotiate and compromise with the laws of physics,” Thunberg concluded. “Yes, this will affect us in the future. This will mostly affect the future generations. But we must not also forget that people are suffering and dying from the consequences of the climate and ecological crisis already today.”

Thunberg Goes After Ted Cruz

This comes after Thunberg trolled Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) for his condemnation of President Joe Biden rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement.

“By rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement, President Biden indicates he’s more interested in the views of the citizens of Paris than in the jobs of the citizens of Pittsburgh,” Cruz wrote. “This agreement will do little to affect the climate and will harm the livelihoods of Americans.”

Thunberg fired back by mockingly tweeting, “So happy that USA has finally rejoined the Pittsburgh Agreement. Welcome back!”

Thunberg is still just a teenager, yet she has long been the face of the radical anti-climate change movement, traveling the world to lecture the rest of us about how evil we are when it comes to the environment.

Jane Fonda wears old gown to Oscars to fight climate change

By PopZette Staff | February 10, 2020

While presenting at the Oscars last night, Jane Fonda wore a gown that she had previously worn, saying that she was doing so to fight climate change.

Fonda appeared onstage to present the Best Picture award wearing a gown that she had worn to the 2014 to the Cannes Film Festival, saying that she was inspired to do this by climate change activist Greta Thunberg, according to Breitbart News.

Fonda said specifically in an interview last year, “I’m not buying any more clothes.”

“You see this coat?” Fonda, 82, said last year during a climate change protest, according to People Magazine. “I needed something red and I went out and found this coat on sale. This is the last article of clothing that I’m gonna ever buy.”

“I grew up when consumerism didn’t have such a stranglehold over us,” Fonda continued. “So, when I talk to people and say, ‘We don’t really need to keep shopping. We shouldn’t look to shopping for our identity. We just don’t need more stuff,’ I have to walk the talk. So, I’m not buying any more clothes.”

Fonda has become known as of late for getting arrested on Fridays during climate change protests in Washington D.C.

“We marched together and we protested together and chanted and sang together and we got arrested together,” Fonda said of a recent protest. “The purpose was to raise awareness of the urgency of the climate crisis.”

Aside from her acting, Fonda was previously known for her protests against the Vietnam War, during which she earned herself the nickname of Hanoi Jane by being photographed sitting on a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun.

Bernie Sanders Has Already Drafted ‘Dozens Of Executive Orders’ To Bypass Congress If Elected President

By PoliZette Staff | January 31, 2020

Disturbing campaign documents have just come to light showing that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ staffers have already begun preparing “dozens of executive orders” so that he can bypass Congress in the first days of his presidency, should he win the election in November.

The documents, which were obtained by the Washington Post, show that Sanders’ has executive orders prepared on a wide range of issues that include the environment, immigration, and the economy.

Sanders’ team has prepared over a dozen options for reversing President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, with one of them being the immediate halting of construction on the border wall. Another potential executive order would remove the limit for the number of refugees that could be admitted to the United States, while a third would reinstate Barack Obama’s DREAMER program, which granted legal status to undocumented immigrants who were brought to this country as children.

This is just the beginning of the executive orders that Sanders has planned. One order legalizes marijuana in the entirety of the United States, and another would allow the U.S. to import prescription drugs from Canada. Sanders would also declare climate change to be a national emergency as soon as he took office, and he would ban the export of crude oil.

This shows that Sanders is anticipating that Republicans will keep control of the Senate come November, and that he has no intention of letting this stop him from achieving his radical agenda.

Another document obtained by the post was written by Faiz Shakir, Sanders’s campaign manager; Warren Gunnels, a senior adviser; and Josh Orton, the campaign policy director, who all urge him to use the executive orders to undo the many “wrongs” of Trump’s presidency.

“We cannot accept delays from Congress on some of the most pressing issues, especially those like immigration where Trump has governed with racism and for his own corrupt benefit,” they said.

These documents make it all the more terrifying that Sanders has taken the lead in Democratic primary polls, according to The Blaze. This man clearly thinks that he is above the law, and he would destroy America as we know it if he is able to get to the White House.

Now, more than ever, it’s important that we ensure Trump is reelected in 2020, if for no other reason than to keep this nutcase Sanders out of power.
