Vive La French Revolution 2.0 – And Our Own!

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

Our elite needs to back down instead of doubling down, but with leaders as unwise and malignant as Felonia Milhous von Pantsuit, is that realistic? Do you think any of our alleged superiors truly understand that Normals are not just going to give up participating in their own governance? If our elite betters actually got out of their kale-loving coastal enclaves once in a while, they might realize that. But our stupid elite is so intent on retaining its own power, like France’s elite is, that it will make disruption inevitable.

Only the second-worst result of efforts to unify Europe

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

French President Emmanuel Macron has scrapped his plan to increase the tax on diesel that so disproportionately hurts French workers. That leaves one wondering. If the future of the planet — the very life of Mother Earth, herself — hangs in the balance as these people believe, then how does Mr. Macron capitulate so easily? By his very own definition of global warming and the threat of fossil fuels such as diesel, he has agreed to murder Mother Earth with his own bare hands. Oh, well. I guess that will be only the second greatest tragedy over the past 100 years when people decided to unify Europe.

Liberals promised China would lead the world on greenhouse gases; they were right

Editors, Washington Examiner

China still promises it is getting serious about global warming, and yet, they still build massive new coal-fired plants. The worry, especially these days, isn’t simply that China will happily take our business. It’s that when China gobbles up manufacturing fleeing the countries with serious climate controls, this becomes a geopolitical weapon. Increasingly, China is using industry as a weapon to gain control over its portion of the globe, as well as Africa and even South America. If the West disarms in the name of climate, China will march on, powered by its coal.

Trump's best play: Stand aside and let coal country become gas country

Editors, Washington Examiner

What coal country needs is not a sacrifice of the national economy, but a new focus and perhaps a new name: gas country. The Trump administration can help coal country by fast-tracking permits for pipelines and otherwise facilitating the already-in-progress transition to natural gas extraction. That has already begun without any government interference, such that Appalachia now accounts for more than a quarter of the nation’s natural gas supply and is expected to account for 40 percent in coming decades.

Massive Riots in Paris Threaten Climate Accord

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

What is happening in Paris carries a message for all Western countries. Democracies, which rely on the sustained support of electorates, have to impose rising costs on those electorates, if they are to deeply cut carbon emissions. But when the electorates cannot see the benefits of these painful price hikes, the greater the likelihood the people will rise up and repudiate those whom progressives regard as far-sighted leaders — such as Macron. China and India were given a pass to produce carbon emissions, while reductions were mandated for the Western powers. How long will the West go along with that, while paying ever-rising prices to cut their own carbon emissions?

Liberals And Their Lackies Hate You And Want You Silenced

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

What can we do individually? We can resist. Their power is soft – it only works if we accept it. We can tell the truth about how many sexes there are and how climate change is a scam and all the other truths that the left wants suppressed. We can refuse to be intimidated. We can ignore their garbage media and Tinseltown propaganda. We can elect conservatives who relish conflict instead of whimpering and hiding. We can fight back and win.  To keep our freedom, we need to accept the truth, as bitter as it is. The left hates us and wants us silenced. But this is our country. If they want it, they have to take it from us because we are never giving up.

Another government report is dead wrong on fragile state of our planet

Stephen Moore, The Hill

What scientists always leave out of their conclusions is the power of human ingenuity, intelligent discovery, and technological improvement to advance our progress. It turns out that humans do not reproduce like field mice. It turns out that food and energy production always outpace depletion. Solutions to the problems of nature, like the hundreds of thousands of years of climate change, almost always come from the private sector and free enterprise, not from politicians or organizations seeking to expand authority through “collective” action.

Hurricane Florence Does Not Point to Climate Change Catastrophe

David Kreutzer, CNS News

The fact that tragic weather events have not stopped is not evidence that carbon emissions are leading us to a climate catastrophe. Perhaps we will see a decades-long increase in one category or another, it has happened before—but that will not prove the predictions of catastrophic climate change one way or the other. Weather catastrophes will continue to strike, and we will still face the danger wrought by nature’s wrath. Hurricane Florence is shaping up to be exactly such a storm.

The Party Of Free Stuff And Illegal Aliens Is Not The Workingman’s Friend

This Labor Day as pundits cast about for heroes of the American labor movement to honor they should forget Samuel Gompers, John L. Lewis, Walter Reuther or Eugene V. Debs and honor President Donald J. Trump for putting Americans back to work.

Climate Change Has Run Its Course

Steven F. Hayward, Wall Street Journal

Scientists who are genuinely worried about the potential for catastrophic climate change ought to be the most outraged at how the left politicized the issue and how the international policy community narrowed the range of acceptable responses. Treating climate change as a planet-scale problem that could be solved only by an international regulatory scheme transformed the issue into a political creed for committed believers. Causes that live by politics, die by politics.

Hurricane Harvey and the climate change alarm bells

Editors, Washington Examiner

Hurricane Harvey is weather, not some demon summoned by Americans' love of burning fossil fuels. The flooding is a freak occurrence in a city built on a bay. The liberals are at least being consistent here: Just as they put far too much faith in man to fix the world, they put far too much blame on man when nature delivers a lashing.

New York Times Veers Into Denier Territory In Questioning Harvey’s Link To Climate Change

Jonathan S. Tobin, The Federalist

When this topic is examined in detail, most of the experts — including mainstream liberals who believe in climate change and human causation — understand that what they don’t know is far greater than what they do understand. It is to the credit of the Times that, for once, their articles were informed by that sensibility. Yet we know that in other contexts, that sort of adherence to the scientific method rather than jumping to extreme conclusions can earn scientists and writers the “denier” label.

Dear Russian Agents, Send Help

Please, send us what you have so we can better expose the deceit and hypocrisy of those who would fundamentally change America by undermining the rule of law and liberty. And maybe – just maybe – the GOP in Washington will see that what’s happening from within to undermine our constitutional republic and way of life is nearly as horrible as what you Russians are trying.

FedUp PAC Poll: Conservatives Stand with Trump on Climate Agreement Withdrawal

Conservatives stand firmly behind President Trump’s decision to withdraw from Obama’s Paris Climate Agreement, according to a new poll by FedUp PAC.

Pittsburgh Not Paris Rally: You Can Do It Too

The Fairfax County GOP’s Pittsburgh Not Paris rally was a huge success garnering media coverage all over the world. We urge our conservative friends to do the same thing in their communities. Put the notice out on social media, hit your email list, make some signs and send us pictures and a short report on your success.

The End Of Obama’s Corrupt Global Warming Treaty

Obama and his liberal allies from Hollywood to Silicon Valley to Wall Street claimed that the goal of the Paris climate treaty was to reduce so-called greenhouse gasses. However, its effect was to produce a massive wealth transfer from American workers to foreigners and wealthy investors.

Paris: Trump Blocks First of Obama's 'Three Authoritarianisms'

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

We shouldn't forget about the absurd amounts of money the accord would presumably have forced the American taxpayer to cough up in return for, at best, a puny amount of cooling.  No one explained how that would be consequential and perhaps that's the point.  It would have exposed the whole thing as a sham.

Take Us Out Mr. President

We urge CHQ readers to use this link to contact the White House. Tell President Trump it is time to fulfill his campaign promise to protect American workers by taking us out of Obama’s unconstitutional Paris climate deal.

Trump Should Ignore Pope’s Prattle About Paris Deal

George Neumayr, The American Spectator

Never had the global left’s use of the Vatican as a propaganda tool been more blatant. Once wary of the Vatican, environmentalists now rejoice openly at their unprecedented access to it and the bully pulpit that Pope Francis has offered them. Many of these environmentalists are anti-Catholic Marxists who support aggressive forms of population control.

President Trump Keeping Promise To Coal Miners

"Since Trump has come back into office, I've gotten back in the mines. Trump has done more for coal in a week than Obama did in an 8-year term," said miner Chad Smith.
