oped: Nothing has changed the MSM as well as progressive Democrats burn the proverbial candle from both ends... ending in Chaos!
by:True Daily Staff
At the height of World War II, the Associated Press made secret arrangements with an SS officer to obtain pictures taken by Nazi photographers that were distributed to American newspapers — a deal authorized by senior U.S. officials.
The extraordinary arrangement, which began in 1941 and ended with Hitler’s fall, is detailed in a lengthy internal report the AP released Wednesday morning. It comes several months after Norman Domeier, a German historian, discovered a letter describing the deal in the papers of AP’s then-bureau chief.
The report includes documents recently declassified at the request of AP’s management, including letters of approval from a wartime censorship office run by an ex-AP editor who reported to President Franklin D. Roosevelt. As part of the arrangement, AP shared pictures of U.S. war operations and Allied advances, which were reviewed by Hitler and published in Nazi publications.
“With one known exception, the AP images that appeared in German publications through this arrangement were unaltered by the Germans, “ the report said, “but captions were rewritten by the Germans to conform to official Nazi views.”

The crisis on the Korean Peninsula just got a whole lot more complicated.
The newly sworn-in president of South Korea is a liberal politician who’s backed a softer line against North Korea in the past and has questioned the deployment of an American missile shield for South Korea that is bitterly opposed by China, according to news reports from the region.
According to The Sidney Morning Herald, South Korean President Moon Jae-in used his inauguration speech to confirm “expectations that he would chart a different course on North Korea.”
A former human rights lawyer whose parents were North Korean refugees, the 64-year-old Moon was an adviser to past South Korean governments that favored a “Sunshine Policy” of openness toward the militaristic, communist regime to the north, The Daily Caller noted.
Under that policy, in place from 1998-2006, the South donated massive amounts of food aid to the starving Hermit Kingdom, engaged in two summits between the leaders of the divided peninsula, and opened a joint industrial park in the border region to foster cooperation between the two rival countries, according to The Washington Post.
Some Korean families — divided by the bloody warfare of 1950-53 and the uneasy truce that has continued since – were even allowed family reunions in the border area.
In return for the South’s approaches, North Korea continued its nuclear weapons program, conducting a nuclear test in 2006 that exploded the “Sunshine Policy” and any realistic hopes that North Korea would start behaving like a rational, peace-minded country.
Apparently undeterred, the new South Korean president sounds like he wants to revive that failed approach.
“I will try to solve the security crisis urgently,” Moon said in his inauguration speech. “If needed, I will fly to straight to Washington. I will also go to Beijing and Tokyo and even Pyongyang in the right circumstances.”
Just as worrisome to practical people, Moon has said he will review South Korea’s approval of a crucial U.S. anti-missile program in his country that China objects to. The American deployment of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense missile shield over South Korea has rankled China.
Moon’s speech — and his willingness to re-engage with the North — already pose the risk of pulling the rug out from under American policy toward Pyongyang. What he does next is going to be crucial.
Robert Kelly, a political science professor at South Korea’s Pusan National University, told The Sidney Morning Herald that Moon’s speech was a sign of how he intends to govern, and that’s going to complicate things on the Korean Peninsula.
“He won’t go along with Trump. He would like to talk to North Korea and he wants to go to Pyongyang,” he told Fairfax Media.
But Kelly did say Moon Jae-in probably wouldn’t risk getting rid of the THAAD program entirely.
“Moon has prevaricated on this. If he pulls out THAAD he will look like he is buckling to China and will be severely criticized by the conservative press,” he said.
But that will be nothing compared to the criticism he’ll be getting from the White House.

Former President Barack Obama is back (unfortunately) and up to his old tricks.
In his $3 million speech at the “Seeds & Chips: The Global Food Innovation Summit” in Milan, Italy, on Tuesday, the former president wasted no time chastising Americans for how much food they wasted.
He specifically pointed out that meat eaters were contributing to climate change.
As a solution, Obama suggested smaller servings of steaks and alternative, more efficient ways to produce protein.
I don’t know about you, but creating more efficient ways to produce protein sounds like something nobody would want to eat. But it does sound like something that might make it onto former first lady Michelle Obama’s sick school lunch program.
But here’s where things get interesting. As Breitbart reported, Kass apparently interrupted Obama to tell him that over the 10 years he had worked for him, he had cooked him “thousands of steaks.”
Of course, Obama disagreed with Kass’ estimation and Kass backtracked, saying that maybe it was “hundreds” of steaks. But we get the point: Obama likes his steak, and you can bet he won’t be the first in line to stock up on alternative protein, whatever that may be.
Obama probably gave Kass an earful after the summit as they headed back to their four-star hotel.
This kind of hypocrisy among Democrats is not surprising. In fact, it appears that the liberals who preach the most about how climate change are quite good at contributing to the earth’s supposed demise by flying around the globe in their jets and sailing across the seas in their huge yachts.

While I am by no means against capitalism and improvement of communities via bringing in venture capital and new business...one must be very careful to maintain the overall flow of keeping a community quaint and simple and fair to old timers and small business owners not to their proverbial detriment!
I talked to several small business owners as well as old timers...here is their complaint: Ever since 'Lance the Pimp' Gilman entered the scene and was elected commissioner... business license fees as well as property taxes,sales tax etc has gone up for residents as well as small business owners...while the Big Business boys Tesla,Apple,Amazon.Google ,FedEx et al have received tax exemption/low rate status as well as really good benefit/expansion deals to make their businesses grow in the N/West SC Industrial Park, a Gilman enterprise (TRIC)...as it turns out old timers and small businesses mostly located in Virginia City are receiving the brunt of the taxes, fees etc and are really hurting...many are closing down and have put their properties up for sale!
Another complaint is: "the influx of these progressive tree hugger.climate change ,Bay area Kawlifornia company transplants moving into our community and bringing their perverted agendas with...they are welcome if they leave their Kawlifornia crap in California...they ruined California and we don't want them ruining our tranquil community who thrives within our US Constitution /Bill of Rights"
Lance Gilman tried to remove our Conservative~ duly elected Sheriff via a recall..of which he lost big time as the community rallied behind Sheriff Antinoro:

Alaska Hit By 45 Significant Earthquakes Within 24 Hours As The West Coast Wonders If ‘The Big One’ Is Imminent
Within the last 24 hours, 45 earthquakes of magnitude 2.5 or greater have struck Alaska, and 25 of them were of magnitude 4.0 or greater. The worst one had a magnitude of 6.2, but none of the earthquakes did much damage because none of them hit heavily populated areas. But the reason why all of this shaking is causing so much concern is because the “Ring of Fire” runs right along the southern Alaska coastline, and all of the earthquakes except for one were along the southern coast.
After running along the southern Alaska coastline, the Ring of Fire goes south along the west coast of Canada, the United States and Mexico. What affects one part of a fault network will often trigger something along another portion of the same fault network, and so many living on the west coast are watching the shaking in Alaska with deep concern.
For a long time scientists have acknowledged that a major Cascadia subduction zone earthquake is way overdue, and when one finally strikes the devastation that we could see in the Pacific northwest is likely to be off the charts. In fact, some scientists believe that the coming Cascadia subduction zone earthquake could potentially be as high as magnitude 9.0…
That 9.0-magnitude quake could trigger a 500 mph wave and put 70,000 people in the “inundation zone” in serious risk. Depending on their location within that zone, Kathryn Schulz writes in her article, people will have between 10 and 30 minutes to evacuate.If a giant earthquake along the Cascadia subduction zone ever did cause a tsunami of that size, the death and destruction would be unimaginable. Just consider what physicist Michio Kaku told CBS News about such an event…
“In Japan, they practice this. Children know exactly what to do, and there’s an early warning system that we don’t have in Seattle that we do have in Japan,” Kaku said. “There are building codes that are not being enforced. Realize that many buildings are just going to be toppled when this gigantic earthquake, a 9.0, and a tsunami hits the Seattle, Tacoma and Portland area.”
According to the FEMA director responsible for Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Alaska, the operating assumption is that “everything west of Interstate 5 will be toast.”
Further south, scientists are expecting “the Big One” to hit California at literally any time. The experts that have studied these things are warning that the 800-mile-long San Andreas fault “could unzip all at once”, and one recent study claims that a big enough earthquake “could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly”…
The Big One may be overdue to hit California, but scientists near LA have found a new risk for the area during a major earthquake.Let us certainly hope that nothing like that happens anytime soon.
They claim that if a major tremor hits the area, it could plunge large parts of California into the sea almost instantly.
The discovery was made after studying the Newport-Inglewood fault, which has long been believed to be one of Southern California’s danger zones.
But without a doubt, the crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable, and we are living at a time when the number of earthquakes just continues to rise.
As I was writing this piece, I came across an article in a major British news source about a researcher that is warning that the gravitational pull caused by certain planets aligning will create ideal conditions for major seismic activity this week…
Frank Hoogerbeets has issued an online “major earthquake warning” amid fears a “big one” is on its way, claiming it could also cause a tsunami.
Mr Hoogerbeets, who is based in the Netherlands, uses a non-scientifically recognised way of predicting earthquakes based on planetary alignments with Earth.He wrote on his website ditrianum.org: “On May 9 2017, three planetary alignments converge, one of which is Earth-Mercury-Uranus.
“It will be the third time this year that these three planets align; the previous two caused a 6.6 and a 6.9 magnitude earthquake respectively.
“The other alignments around the 9th are Mars-Venus-Saturn and Mars-Sun-Mercury.
“This convergence is also close to Full Moon (May 10).”
Of course, we have already seen major seismic activity in Alaska, and we shall see if anything else happens over the next few days.
Another item that caught my attention was a CBS News report that talked about the fact that shark attacks are increasing along the west coast…
Shark attacks are on the rise along the California coast.
“Beach access to the water is closed today because we had a girl get bit by a shark,” said one park official.
Beachgoers were greeted by scary warning after 35-year-old was attacked in knee-deep water north of San Diego last week.
Many believe that sharks become more aggressive when major seismic activity is imminent.
I don’t know if there is any truth to that, but considering everything else that is happening I found that to be quite interesting.
Once again, let’s hope that nothing like this happens anytime soon.
But we shouldn’t stick our heads in the sand either.
Clearly, that is happening, and I am entirely convinced that in the not too distant future we will start seeing natural disasters on a scale that we have never experienced before.

I can't tell you how many people I run into who have never heard of what occurred at Bundy Ranch in 2014. Even fewer people are aware of what took place in 2015-16 in Oregon at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge that eventually led to the murder of LaVoy Finicum by the Oregon State Police aided by the FBI and orchestrated by the Oregon governor and the White House. If you have been in the dark, or you have friends who are completely unaware of what took place, I beg you to watch this video and share it far and wide.
Men are still in prison awaiting trial on similar charges in Nevada that they faced in Oregon but were either dismissed or they were acquitted of the charges.
This is the story of men who stood against the federal government and called them back to the confines of the Constitution. They also gained a voice in their stand to teach a generation of people willing to learn who are the rightful owners of the land, and to call out the criminals who have usurped their authority in order to not only gain land and resources, but also to control the people.

The 12-minute Russian-language video showed the man - identified as Evgeny Petrenko - dressed in a black jump suit kneeling in a desert scene and urging other Russian agents to surrender.
It emerged on the day Vladimir Putin held a huge Victory Day parade to celebrate the anniversary of the 1945 victory over Nazi Germany.
He reportedly wanted the display of military might to make his foreign foes "salivate".
The lengthy ISIS video repeated the format used in previous hostage executions, including of James Foley and David Haines, showing Petrenko giving a 'confession' under duress.
"This idiot believed the promises of his state not to abandon him if he was captured," Petrenko says in the footage, before a Russian-speaking ISIS jihad beheads him with a knife.
He was shown supposedly confessing to attempting to infiltrate jihadi groups in the Caucus, Turkey and Syria, where he allegedly contacted Chechen militant Omar al-Shishani who has since been killed in a US air strike.

As a member of President Donald Trump’s family, first daughter Ivanka Trump has been given round-the-clock protection by the U.S. Secret Service, which has included the protection of her children, as well.
by: Kirsty Jane
Arabella Kushner, 5, Joseph Kushner, 3, and Theodore, 1, are regularly seen out with the Trump daughter and her husband, Jared Kushner, who both serve as advisers to the president, and a recent photograph showed just how much the Kushner family appreciates the new security detail.
From Conservative Tribune
The family showed their gratitude to the Secret Service on May 5 by bringing them some baked goodies before the parents headed to work, according to Independent Journal Review.
Arabella and Joseph were photographed bringing a tray of treats to the agents on duty outside of the family’s Kalorama home — a gesture the kids appeared to be excited about. In fact, one of the photographs showed Joseph with a big grin on his face as he carried the tin tray to the agents assigned to protect the family’s home:
Another photo showed Arabella enjoying one of the treats for herself. (Hard to blame her for that.)Jared and the kids bring treats out to the Secret Service https://t.co/TmTsUnQXZi pic.twitter.com/kvNh9V13OF— Daily Mail US (@DailyMail) April 28, 2017
A few moments later, Kushner hopped into a waiting car to take him to work at the White House, and Ivanka emerged about 90 minutes later, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
This adorable cookie delivery wasn’t the first time the president’s grandchildren had extended this sweet gesture to those around them, as the family delivered baked goods to their neighbors earlier this year after the new Secret Service detail caused some to be irritated about the Kushners’ presence.
It’s great to see how the extended Trump family behaves when out of the public eye, and the fact that Jared, Ivanka and their children obviously appreciated those who protect them every day speaks volumes about their character and values.
Jared Kushner is in hot water after information came out that he has done business dealings with George Soros. This is not totally new. It has been known and well-documented.
*** This is not good! Here is a discussion on the issue by Gavin McCines.
The Wall Street Journal has said on Tuesday that Senior White House advisor, Jared Kushner, did not include information about his real-estate finance venture that makes him business partners with the infamous George Soros.
It has now come out that Soros provided Cadre, the company owned by Jared Kushner, got a $250 million in credit to Cadre. This makes Kushner business partners with Soros, Peter Thiel and several other billionaires, according to Daily Caller.Soros reportedly provided Jared Kushner's company with a $250 million line of credit. https://t.co/tGBLHzExuC— Peter J. Hasson (@peterjhasson) May 2, 2017
Jamie Gorelick said that Kushner discussed his stake in the company with the Office of Government ethics and then “resigned from Cadre’s board, assigned his voting rights, and reduced his ownership share,” according to the Journal.

There has been much ado — and rightly so — over the goings on at Fox News Channel - sexual harassment, hush money allegedly paid to victims, a string of high-profile resignations (some of which were really firings).
Less in the news is a lawsuit by 13 plaintiffs against Fox, alleging racial discrimination (although CNN covers the story here [but the author writes "Jim Crown" where we're guessing he meant to write "Jim Crow"]).
But even less in the news is a massive lawsuit against CNN. The class-action suit has been growing by leaps and bounds ever since it was first filed in December. Now, some 175 current and former employees have contacted lawyers about joining the case.
Only a few publications followed up on the story at the end of April, when the case exploded.
"The lawsuit against CNN, meanwhile, claims the company’s Atlanta headquarters is rife with racism," The New York Post wrote on April 27.
Minority employees had to endure bigoted remarks such as “It’s hard to manage black people” and “Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?,” according to a complaint by former workers Celeslie Henley and Ernest Colbert Jr. filed in Atlanta federal court.
Colbert Jr. also claims he was paid thousands less than white colleagues as a manager at the affiliated Turner Broadcasting System.
Henley, a former CNN executive assistant, says she was fired in 2014 for complaining that black employees were being paid less than white counterparts.
Writes The Hollywood Reporter:
Unlike the lawsuit against Fox News, the one against CNN and sister companies is much broader, claiming among other things that African-Americans receive lower performance ratings in evaluations, that there are dramatic differences in pay between similarly situated employees of different races and that the promotion of African-American employees is blocked by a "glass ceiling." The complaint (see here) cites hiring and advancement statistics while alleging that African-American employees have endured slurs from superiors, including "It's hard to manage black people" and "Who would be worth more: black slaves from times past, or new slaves?"
While the Fox News suit has grown by one additional employee, the case against CNN may soon become bigger by many multiples.
That's because after the defendants moved for dismissal or at least a more definitive statement about specific allegations, also raising the prospect that some of the claims may be barred by statute of limitations or by plaintiffs not exhausting administrative remedies, the plaintiffs' attorneys told the judge of their wish to file an amended complaint.
According to a plaintiffs' motion to amend that was filed March 23, "Since the filing of this action, counsels for the plaintiffs have been contacted by more than 175 people, both former and current employees of the Defendant, requesting to be members of the putative class action, all having similar complaints of intentional racial discrimination, discrimination impact and discriminatory practices employed by the Defendants."
The attorneys also write that many of the potential members recently coming forward are within the administrative process at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and awaiting their 90-days right-to-sue letter.
The number of people now suing CNN is ten times higher than those suing Fox, writes Ken LaCorte on Mediaite — "yet how many stories have you read about that?"
CNN star Jake Tapper has clearly forgotten about the lawsuit against his own network:
But hey, if it's not on CNN, it must not be news, right?When a company sends the clear signal that women are basically sub-human, vile behavior thrives even after top offenders are fired.— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) April 26, 2017
TRANSGENDER AGENDA FAIL: Scientists Say There Are More Than 6,500 Genes That Express Differently In Men And Women
Transgender activists have simultaneously detached gender completely from sex and suggested that men can magically become "real women" by merely "identifying" as female, and vise-versa. This is untrue, of course. A new study composed by Weizmann Institute of Science researchers just widened the hole in the transgender narrative pushed by progressives: it has been found that the two sexes express over 6,500 genes differently, adding to the already major biological differences between men and women.
"Weizmann Institute of Science researchers recently uncovered thousands of human genes that are expressed — copied out to make proteins — differently in the two sexes," notes the Weizmann Institute. The study focuses on how "harmful mutations in these particular genes tend to accumulate in the population in relatively high frequencies."
Professor Shmuel Pietrokovski and Dr. Moran Gershoni, both researches from the Weizmann Institute’s Molecular Genetics Department, "looked closely at around 20,000 protein-coding genes, sorting them by sex and searching for differences in expression in each tissue. They eventually identified around 6,500 genes with activity that was biased toward one sex or the other in at least one tissue. For example, they found genes that were highly expressed in the skin of men relative to that in women’s skin, and they realized that these were related to the growth of body hair. Gene expression for muscle building was higher in men; that for fat storage was higher in women," reports Weizmann Institute.
And the differences continue: mutations expressed in men were less likely to be weeded out via natural selection than in women. “The more a gene was specific to one sex, the less selection we saw on the gene. And one more difference: This selection was even weaker with men,” said Gershoni.
The researches highlighted sexual evolution theory from the 1930's to account for such a difference: “In many species, females can produce only a limited number of offspring while males can, theoretically, father many more; so the species’ survival will depend on more viable females in the population than males,” said Pietrokovski. “Thus natural selection can be more ‘lax’ with the genes that are only harmful to males.”
There were also discoveries of sex-linked genes in the mammary glands:
Aside from the sexual organs, the researchers discovered quite a few sex-linked genes in the mammary glands — not so surprising, except that about half of these genes were expressed in men. Because men have fully fitted but basically nonfunctional mammary equipment, the scientists made an educated guess that some of these genes might suppress lactation.While such a difference might be obvious in the mammary glands, the researchers also found genes "to be expressed only in the left ventricle of the heart in women. One of these genes, which is also related to calcium uptake, showed very high expression levels in younger women that sharply decreased with age; the scientists think that they are active in women up to menopause, protecting their hearts, but leading to heart disease and osteoporosis in later years when the gene expression is shut down."
Additionally, they found "another gene that was mainly expressed in women was active in the brain, and though its exact function is unknown, the scientists think it may protect the neurons from Parkinson’s — a disease that has a higher prevalence and earlier onset in men. The researchers also identified gene expression in the liver in women that regulates drug metabolism, providing molecular evidence for the known difference in drug processing between women and men."
“The basic genome is nearly the same in all of us, but it is utilized differently across the body and among individuals,” said Gershoni. “Thus, when it comes to the differences between the sexes, we see that evolution often works on the level of gene expression.”
“Paradoxically, sex-linked genes are those in which harmful mutations are more likely to be passed down, including those that impair fertility. From this vantage point, men and women undergo different selection pressures and, at least to some extent, human evolution should be viewed as co-evolution. But the study also emphasizes the need for a better understanding of the differences between men and women in the genes that cause disease or respond to treatments," added Pietrokovski.
Still, the many intricate biological differences between men and women, such as the ones expressed by Weizmann Institute researchers, will be said by progressives to be simply overridden by one's feelings.
We are bombarded with "facts" every day: This is the "hottest [pick a season] ever"; the ice caps are at a record low; we'll all be dead in 10 years.
For former president Barack Obama, the ever-changing and often contradictory "facts" about global warming (which liberals now call climate change because the globe stopped warming) was simply "settled science."
But now it turns out the Arctic sea ice is thicker than ever and, oh yeah, the global temperature trend has not warmed for 19 years. That's right -- 19 years!
The Telegraph newspaper in the UK has published a fascinating article detailing data from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI).
Ever since December temperatures in the Arctic have consistently been lower than minus 20 C. In April the extent of Arctic sea ice was back to where it was in April 13 years ago. Furthermore, whereas in 2008 most of the ice was extremely thin, this year most has been at least two metres thick. The Greenland ice cap last winter increased in volume faster than at any time for years.
As for those record temperatures brought in 2016 by an exceptionally strong El Niño, the satellites now show that in recent months global temperatures have plummeted by more that 0.6 degrees: just as happened 17 years ago after a similarly strong El Niño had also made 1998 the “hottest year on record”.
This means the global temperature trend has now shown no further warming for 19 years. But the BBC won’t be telling us any of this. And we are still stuck with that insanely damaging Climate Change Act, which in this election will scarcely get a mention.
The author then goes on to decry the very real consequences to businesses and citizens from governments continuing to enact ever more stringent regulation to offset this global "warming." But the real findings of the DMI are significant. The liberal media might take issue with a U.S. think tank funding a study that says global warming doesn't exist -- or at least hasn't for 19 years -- but they'll accept the findings from little ol' Denmark, won't they?
But wait, there's more -- much more.
"Experts told Daily Star Online planet Earth is on course for a “Little Age Ice” within the next three years thanks to a cocktail of climate change and low solar activity," the Brit paper writes on Monday.
Research shows a natural cooling cycle that occurs every 230 years began in 2014 and will send temperatures plummeting even further by 2019.
Scientists are also expecting a “huge reduction” in solar activity for 33 years between 2020 and 2053 that will cause thermometers to crash.
Both cycles suggest Earth is entering a global cooling cycle that could have devastating consequences for global economy, human life and society as we know it.
If predictions of the world-wide big freeze come true, the plot to 2004 film The Day After Tomorrow would not be far from reality during winter. ...
David Dilley, CEO of Global Weather Oscillations, told Daily Star Online global warming and cooling cycles are determined by the gravitational forces of the Earth, moon and sun.
Each cycle lasts around 120,000 years, with sub-cycles of around 230 years.
He said: “We have had five warming cycles since about 900AD, each followed by a dramatic cooling cycle.
“The last global warming cycle ended in 1790 and the year 2020 is 230 following this – thus I have been talking about rapid cooling beginning in 2019.”
He said the oncoming cooling will send temperatures plummeting to lows last seen in the 1940s – when the mercury bottomed out at -21C during winter in the UK.
He said: “Cooling from 2019 into about 2020 to 2021 will bring world temperatures back to where they were in the 1940s through the 1960s.
By the way, the headline of the Telegraph article was perfect: "Another Arctic ice panic over as world temperatures plummet." Exactly. Watch the MSM networks and websites for these latest reports -- and then ponder why they never ran them ....

oped: You go girl make your Father proud...let your journey begin...Bust the Climate change Myth!
Throughout his presidency, Barack Obama’s administration would often provide news releases to the press regarding climate change. Critics often called the information misleading, but it’s far worse than that.
A top U.S. scientist that formerly worked for Obama has finally revealed the truth –Obama’s administration had been lying about the data all along!
Nearly all the data and statistics given to the mainstream media conveniently supported the Obama administration’s narrative that climate change was out of control, the scientist revealed to The Wall Street Journal.
The media never bothered to check the facts, and repeated the alarming data — and now Ivanka Trump is in charge of getting to the bottom of the whole thing.
President Donald Trump has tasked his daughter Ivanka to investigate and determine what the U.S. truly needs to work to combat the effects of climate change.
Former Energy Department Undersecretary Steven Koonin admitted to The Wall Street Journal that Obama had been manipulating scientific data in order to exaggerate the severity of climate change. He also acknowledged how Obama’s administration “had a point of view about climate change, and was not afraid to promote that view.”
He continued “what you saw coming out of the press releases about climate data, climate analysis, was, I’d say, misleading, sometimes just wrong.”
For example, Koonin pointed to the National Climate Assessment in 2014, which claimed hurricane activity has increased since 1980, but downplayed another incredibly important factor in interpreting the data.
“What they forgot to tell you, and you don’t know until you read all the way into the fine print is that it actually decreased decades before that,” Koonin noted.
But now that Trump’s in office, he’s committed to finding the real truth — and he’s put Ivanka in charge of it.
The first daughter has been tasked with reviewing the U.S. commitment to the Paris Climate Change agreement, which Obama signed without Congress’ approval as an executive agreement in 2015.
The United Nations’ climate change meeting is next week in Bonn, Germany, with U.S. representatives slated to attend.
But their presence does not signify an American approval of the deal.
A State Department official clarified to The Associated Press, “The decision to participate in next week’s U.N. climate talks shouldn’t be construed as a sign that Trump has decided to stay in the Paris pact.”
Ahead of the meeting, Ivanka, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt and other Trump advisers will meet Tuesday to discuss a potential withdrawal from the deal.
She will lead an extensive review process to ensure that her father receives accurate information from government experts and the private sector before making a final decision on a potential withdrawal.
The Trump’s are committed to finding the truth and when it comes to climate change, it is in Ivanka’s hands.

Former president Barack Obama has ducked a court summons requiring him to respond to five lawsuits being issued against him.
The founder of Judicial Watch, Larry Klayman, says that Obama has ducked the process server on five occasions, in order to illegally avoid appearing in court.
Process servers are licensed by a court and have the right to serve legal documents and if you impeded them it is Obstruction of Justice.
Most recently, in late-April, the former President managed to dodge process server Tony Snesko who showed up to his D.C. residence by having the D.C. Police and the Secret Service intervene.
“Good morning,” the Snesko said to a local cop guarding Obama’s residence. “I have got a summons that needs to be delivered to Barack Hussien Obama or someone on his behalf.”
The police officer, still sitting in his car, replied, “A summons?” The officer then picked up his phone to call someone.
“Sir, there you go. Walk down this sidewalk all the way to 2446,” the officer told Snesko.
Seconds later Secret Service agents came down the stairs in front of Obama’s residence to question the process server.
Secret Service agent Bukin then spoke with the cop briefly before telling the process server that “a team” would come out and take a look at the paperwork. The agent accepted the documents but would not provide a signature.
Obama was thought to be in French Polynesia at the time of the summons which is a non-extradition country.
We all know that because a well-regulated militia is necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. Few if any, however, have questioned what a poorly regulated militia is good for.
As it turns out, the Phoenix John Brown Gun Club has an answer to the inquiry almost no one was making. Poorly-regulated militias, it seems, are good for only one thing: laughs.
In case you missed our previous reportage on the Phoenix John Brown Gun Club, it’s a “militia” made up of Arizona liberals who conspicuously rediscovered the Second Amendment right about the time that Donald Trump had become the clear front-runner for the Republican nomination.
The club infamously held an open carry counter-demonstration outside a Trump rally in March of last year. While we question the ethics of using such a demonstration as an intimidation tactic against people who are peaceably assembling, we have no issue with open carry.
However, some members of the Phoenix John Brown Gun Club apparently did, since as Free Market Shooter points out, a number of the weapons they were carrying seemed to be obvious fakes.
Now, the group wants to prove that they really mean it with a video of their “range day.” Unfortunately, the footage ended up being the funniest comedy from members of the left since “Annie Hall.” The video was uploaded by group members themselves on April 22, which is ironic because I think even their worst enemies would have refrained from publicizing a video this thoroughly embarrassing.
Where to begin?
Well, first of all, let’s start with the range, which seems conspicuously trash-strewn for being run by individuals allegedly willing to fight and die for the party of Al Gore. That’s just the beginning, though. Check out where they’re shooting from — 25 yards away or less.
As one of the writers at PatDollard.com pointed out, “U.S .Army Field Manual on marksmanship indicates that the weapon is zeroed (sighted) at 25 meters, with qualified training taking place at 50 meters or further, and a maximum scored distance of 300 meters.”
For those of you who aren’t firearm fans, zeroing your rifle is calibrating the sight so that it hits a target at a certain distance. They don’t seem terribly interested in zeroing it at all, and are instead shooting from a very short distance.
And even at that range, they can’t hit anything. Check out the portion of the video beginning at 2:05. Bullets are clearly missing short-range targets by five yards or more. The only marksmanship test they would be able to pass is the one to become an Empire Storm trooper.
This militia, in case you hadn’t noticed, is named after abolitionist John Brown. For those of you who have gone through Common Core American history and are unfamiliar with the name, he was an insurrectionist who was hanged after an armed rebellion against the Democrat-backed slave owners of the antebellum South. Say what you will about his methods, he was a man of conviction and bravery.
These idiots, meanwhile, are nothing more than cowardly defenders of the modern incarnation of the party Brown died fighting. They back an ideology that has no respect for gun rights, but they’re willing to compromise that in order to intimidate Americans into giving up their freedom of speech and assembly.
Perhaps it’s unsurprising that individuals with such negligible convictions and morals also have such negligible skill at handling a firearm. These dress-up militia members couldn’t hit the side of a Chick-fil-A from 20 feet, though I fear that may not be for lack of trying.
We’ll see how long they keep this video up on YouTube, given that it’s the funniest seven minutes since “Who’s on First?”
