DONNELLY: Jerry Brown’s California Legacy is a Dam Failure

“Moonbeam” never ceases to amaze – Governor Brown is now going hat-in-hand to beg the Trump administration for emergency funds.

The Oroville Dam — at 770 feet, America’s tallest — is on the verge of failing. And Sacramento, which has been fiddling for decades while Rome burns, is running for cover.

This isn’t just any dam; it’s the primary storage facility located on the Feather River for the State Water Project, the state-owned conveyance system that provides drinking water to more than two-thirds of California’s population.

If the dam were to fail, it could inundate not only the city of Oroville but numerous other communities downstream, including Yuba City, Marysville and even West Sacramento.

At the moment, the emergency spillway is being used for the first time since Governor Ronald Reagan approved its construction, and almost 200,000 people have been evacuated.

What’s Governor Jerry Brown doing?

The same thing he’s been doing for decades — obstructing progress.  California has been so busy defying President Donald Trump in order to protect illegal aliens from deportation that it forgot to do the things government is supposed to do, like maintain infrastructure. Governor Brown is now going hat-in-hand to beg the Trump administration for emergency funds.

According to Breitbart News sources, the Trump administration is already closely monitoring the situation, and has dispatched personnel and made contingency plans to aid California in the event of a catastrophic dam failure.

But it’s during the seven dry years — the extended drought — that the state should have fixed its water infrastructure, like dams and canals. Brown and his merry band of Democrats had different priorities, like high-speed rail, benefits for illegal aliens, and unsustainable pensions. Read the rest of this article HERE.

Florida Lawmakers Introduce Bill Banning ‘Sanctuary’ Cities

By Katherine Rodriguez

Florida Republican lawmakers have introduced legislation that will target “sanctuary” cities and counties, along with the elected officials that support them, that don’t cooperate with federal enforcement of immigration law.

Sen. Aaron Bean (R-Fernandina Beach) and Rep. Larry Metz (R-Yalaha) introduced SB 786 and HB 697, known as the “Rule of Law Adherence Act,” Wednesday in Tallahassee, the Miami Herald reported.

The bills seek to ban “sanctuary policies” in Florida and create fines and penalties for state agencies, local governments, or law enforcement agencies that use these policies and don’t comply with federal immigration law.

“The one thing that everybody should know in our country is: We can’t choose which laws we’ll obey or which laws we don’t obey,” said Bean. Read the rest of this story HERE.

How world leaders were duped into investing billions over manipulated global warming data

  • The Mail on Sunday can reveal a landmark paper exaggerated global warming.
  • It was rushed through and timed to influence the Paris agreement on climate change.
  • America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration broke its own rules.
  • The report claimed the pause in global warming never existed, but it was based on misleading, ‘unverified’ data.

Data Science,Climate and satellites Consultant John J Bates, who blew the whistle to the Mail on Sunday

The Mail on Sunday today reveals astonishing evidence that the organisation that is the world’s leading source of climate data rushed to publish a landmark paper that exaggerated global warming and was timed to influence the historic Paris Agreement on climate change.

A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015.

The report claimed that the ‘pause’ or ‘slowdown’ in global warming in the period since 1998 – revealed by UN scientists in 2013 – never existed, and that world temperatures had been rising faster than scientists expected. Launched by NOAA with a public relations fanfare, it was splashed across the world’s media, and cited repeatedly by politicians and policy makers.

But the whistleblower, Dr John Bates, a top NOAA scientist with an impeccable reputation, has shown The Mail on Sunday irrefutable evidence that the paper was based on misleading, ‘unverified’ data.

It was never subjected to NOAA’s rigorous internal evaluation process – which Dr Bates devised.

His vehement objections to the publication of the faulty data were overridden by his NOAA superiors in what he describes as a ‘blatant attempt to intensify the impact’ of what became known as the Pausebuster paper.

His disclosures are likely to stiffen President Trump’s determination to enact his pledges to reverse his predecessor’s ‘green’ policies, and to withdraw from the Paris deal – so triggering an intense political row. Read the rest of this article HERE.

The PM, the Prince and ‘the pause’: David Cameron and Prince Charles attended the historic 2015 Paris climate change conference with 150 world leaders. Cameron committed Britain to an EU-Wide emission cut as a result. And Charles, writing in this paper last month, stated there was no pause in global warming, influenced by the flawed NOAA paper that made this claim

Conservative Legend Phyllis Schlafly Dies At 92 – RIP

Schlafly RIPBy Julia Hahn

Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly died on Monday afternoon.

The “Sweetheart of the Silent Majority” passed away surrounded by family in her home in Ladue, Missouri just a short 10-minute drive from where she was born in St. Louis on August 15, 1924.

Her death marks a palpable loss for the conservative movement which, just last month, celebrated the grassroots heroine’s 92nd birthday.

An accomplished lawyer, activist, author, and mother of six, Phyllis Schlafly has been described as the embodiment of the ideal American woman.

As Sen. Jeff Sessions wrote in a statement submitted for the Congressional Record, “dynamic, smart, beautiful, and articulate,” Schlafly has “fearlessly” and “tirelessly… championed the American family and American values.”

In 1963, the publisher of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat put it this way: “Phyllis Schlafly stands for everything that has made America great and for those things which will keep it that way.”

Schlafly enjoyed a rich family life. Married in 1949, she and her late-husband, Fred, shared forty-four happy years together as well as six children, sixteen grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.

Never one to see her femininity as antithetical to her career goals, Schlafly was awarded Illinois’ Mother of the Year only a few years before being named one of the 100 Most Important Women of the 20th Century by the Ladies’ Home Journal.

Revered for her steadfast judgement, Schlafly was a guiding light to many conservatives, who looked to her to determine the political battles of the day. Most recently, the “godmother of the conservative movement” led the charge against the Gang of Eight amnesty plan and President Obama’s Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) agreement.

“Clinton Cash” – The Movie, Watch it Here, Watch it Now

Here is the complete movie version of Peter Schweizer’s best selling book, Clinton Cash which has already had over 1.1 million views online. Please note that the video begins with Stephen K. Bannon, Executive Chairman of Breitbart News and the screenwriter of the film, interviewing the author, Peter Schweitzer. The interview is 14:55 long and is immediately followed by the film.

Breitbart News is honored to present free of charge the Director’s Cut of Clinton Cash — the new documentary taking the internet by storm, based on Peter Schweizer’s bestselling book (now available in paperback) and graphic novel of the same name.

Due to the overwhelming success of last weekend’s premiere of Clinton Cash, the film has been the #1 trending topic on Facebook for three days in a row. Its success in dominating social media during the Democratic National Convention is thanks in part to the signal boost given by progressive supporters of Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Already concerned citizens have circulated copies of the film on various media platforms. While most filmmakers would find the pirating of their material troubling, the Clinton Cash filmmakers have a message to the world: “Pirate away!”

Unlike Bill and Hillary Clinton, we believe some things are more important than cold cash. This film was not made to make money. It was made to alert the public to the appalling — and dangerous — corruption of the Clintons.

Donald Trump Regains Command of Narrative In Wake of Blistering Hillary Clinton Speech

by Amanda House – 22 Jun 2016

Donald Trump’s Wednesday morning speech blasting Hillary Clinton’s failed policies and poor judgement rocked conservatives and liberals alike. As NPR News put it, “Trump gave the speech Republicans have been waiting 20 years to hear” – and liberals feared.

Speaking from SoHo in New York City, the presumptive GOP nominee rebuked Clinton’s “I’m with her” slogan, saying instead, “I’m with you, the American people.”

His fiery speech comes just days after the firing of controversial campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and a few rocky weeks of self-inflicted wounds as reflected in slumping poll numbers. Trump’s campaign has been aiming for a reboot, with the hope of uniting the Republican party – and, it looks like they may have just gotten one.

Below is a list of coverage from both the left and right praising the presumptive GOP nominee’s speech.

Fortune: “Donald Trump Promised Us A Speech On Hillary Clinton’s Past, And On Wednesday, He Didn’t Disappoint.” (Chris Matthews, “Trump Accuses Clinton Of Helping China In Return For Cash,” Fortune, 6/22/16)

Fox News: “Donald Trump Delivered A Blistering Attack Wednesday On Hillary Clinton’s Record…” “Donald Trump delivered a blistering attack Wednesday on Hillary Clinton’s record as secretary of state, accusing the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee of milking oppressive regimes of tens of millions of dollars to benefit the Clinton Foundation — while sleeping through her own ‘3 a.m. phone call’ as terrorists were murdering four Americans in Libya, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.” (“Trump Hammers Clinton Foreign Policy Record, Foundation Donations,” Fox News, 6/22/16)

ABC News: Trump “Blasted Hillary Clinton…”“Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump today blasted Hillary Clinton as a ‘world-class liar,’ saying she ‘may be the most corrupt person ever’ to run for president.” (John Santucci, Candace Smith, Paola Chavez And Veronica Stracqualursi, “Donald Trump Slams Hillary Clinton As A ‘World-Class Liar’,” ABC News, 6/22/16)

Slate Headline: “Trump’s Speech About Hillary Was Terrifyingly Effective” (Michelle Goldberg, Slate, 6/22/16)

NPR News Headline: “Trump Just Gave The Speech Republicans Have Been Waiting 20 Years To Hear” (Mara Liasson, NPR News, 6/22/16)

CNN: “Trump: Clinton Is a ‘World-Class Liar’” “[He] seemed to fuse his volatile, off-the-cuff political style with a more traditional brand of political discourse that puts reasoned arguments before voters as they make their choice for President.” (Jeremy Diamond and Stephen Collinson, CNN, 6/22/16) Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Donald Trump Delivers Anti Hillary Clinton Speech in New York City (6-22-16)

Report: Wendy’s to Roll Out Self-Serve Kiosks by End of 2016, as Wage Increases Squeeze Fast Food Companies

by Jerome Hudson ♦ 13 May 2016

Do the Math: You can only make $15.00 per hour of you have more than ZERO hours to work.

Wendy’s fast food restaurant chain says it will begin offering self-serve kiosks at its 6,000-plus locations across America, making them available to costumers by the end of 2016.

The fast food giant’s decision to move toward automation comes just as “Fight for $15”–a progressive protest movement, pushing minimum wage hikes–is applying pressure on state governments to raise wages for low-skilled fast food workers.

Last August, Wendy’s CFO Todd Penegor told investors that mandated wage hikes will cause his company to pursue other innovative avenues that could lead to fewer jobs for low-skill workers.

“We continue to look at initiatives and how we work to offset any impacts of future wage inflation through technology initiatives, whether that’s customer self-order kiosks, whether that’s automating more in the back of the house in the restaurant,” Penegor said, adding that “you’ll see a lot more coming on that front later this year from us.”

On the same conference call, Wendy’s CEO Emil Brolick said that individual Wendy’s franchises “will likely look at the opportunity to reduce overall staff, look at the opportunity to certainly reduce hours and any other cost reduction opportunities, not just price.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.

Climate Hustle

Scorching temperatures. Melting ice caps. Killer hurricanes and tornadoes. Disappearing polar bears. The end of civilization as we know it! Are emissions from our cars, factories, and farms causing catastrophic climate change? Is there a genuine scientific consensus? Or is man-made “global warming” an overheated environmental con job being used to push for increased government regulations and a new “Green” energy agenda?

CLIMATE HUSTLE answers these questions, and many, many more. Produced by CFACT and CDR Communications in the one-of-a-kind entertaining and informative style that has made CFACT’s award-winning ClimateDepot.com one of the world’s most sought after sources for reliable, hard-to-find facts about climate issues, this groundbreaking film tears the cover off of global warming hype, and exposes the myths and exaggerations of this multi-billion dollar issue.

CLIMATE HUSTLE, hosted by award-winning investigative journalist Marc Morano, reveals the history of climate scares including global cooling; debunks outrageous claims about temperatures, extreme weather, and the so-called “consensus;” exposes the increasingly shrill calls to “act immediately before it’s too late,” and in perhaps the film’s most important section, profiles key scientists who used to believe in climate alarm but have since converted to skepticism.

CLIMATE HUSTLE will be in theaters for a one-night event on Monday, May 2nd, and will include an exclusive panel discussion following the film featuring Gov. Sarah Palin, climatologist Dr. David Legates, media watchdog Brent Bozell, film host Marc Morano, and comments from Bill Nye “the Science Guy.”

Library of Congress to Eliminate Terms “Illegal Alien” and “Alien”

I have strong opinions about the content that follows. I will not voice them here, but you can express yours in the comments section below.

Illegal ImmigrantsThe Library of Congress is dropping the terms “illegal alien” and “alien” from its subject headings after a group of college students and the American Library Association protested the words’ usage.

As early as May, the Library of Congress will begin revising its subject headings and replacing “Aliens” with “Noncitizens” and heading references to “Illegal aliens” with “Noncitizens” and “Unauthorized immigration.”

“[The Policy and Standards Division of the Library of Congress] concluded that the meaning of Aliens is often misunderstood and should be revised to Noncitizens, and that the phrase illegal aliens has become pejorative,” the Library explained in its Executive Summary about the changes.

“The heading Illegal aliens will therefore be cancelled and replaced by two headings, Noncitizens and Unauthorized immigration, which may be assigned together to describe resources about people who illegally reside in a country,” it added. Continue reading at breitbart.com.
