And end with. They impeach or don't. Don't, is my bet.
I would tend to agree with you. Particularly if that disgusting Trump love-fest after he got the so-called tax cut bill passed is any indication. I can’t believe how the Republicans are now defending someone even they didn’t want back during the primaries. What happened to those ‘Never Trump’ Republicans? Complete abdication of their self respect. Shame now appears to be throughly absent within that party. Just win at all costs.

The GOP will stick with Trump as long as he rubber stamps their agenda of massively redistributing wealth upward while starving the beast of government down to where it can be drowned in the bathtub. Then, when it suits their purpose, they’ll 25th Amendment his ass so President Pence can usher in the new US Theocracy...

If the presence of the polar vortex here in these areas where it doesn't usually make an appearance is "weather" rather than "climate" (and I agree), then its presence doesn't argue one way or another with regard to global warming. As you said weather and climate ARE different.

Yes. My post should have read "the increase in polar vortex events over the past 30 years," i was not saying 2017's one data point was decisive.  Pixel in a larger picture.

The new tax bill prevents police and firefighters from deducting their uniforms as an expense, apparently.

http://www.cnn.com/2017/12/29/us/az-education-law-overturned-trnd/index.html

The law said Mexican-American studies were forbidden.

Instead, the law is forbidden.


(CNN) — An Arizona law banning Mexican-American studies from schools has been quashed.

A federal court says the law, which took aim at classes that state school officials said promoted "revolution against the American government," violates students' constitutional rights.

One program affected by the law was Tucson Unified School District's Mexican-American Studies (MAS) program Arizona, which state lawmakers said were "designed primarily for pupils of a particular ethnic group."

Sorry Global Warming Alarmists, The Earth Is Cooling

Climate change itself is already in the process of definitively rebutting climate alarmists who think human use of fossil fuels is causing ultimately catastrophic global warming.  That is because natural climate cycles have already turned from warming to cooling, global temperatures have already been declining for more than 10 years, and global temperatures will continue to decline for another two decades or more.

They need some new laws in Arizona....as well as a border fence, and a fleet of deportation buses.

In plain English.

In plain English:

a) That's 5.5 years ago.

b) Peter Ferrara is an American lawyer, policy analyst, and columnist. He is not a scientist any more than you are. That column has been debunked dozens of times, not that you would put any creedance in the SCIENTISTS who responded to it.

c) His conclusions were attributed to presentations at a conference on climate change hosted by the libertarian Heartland Institute. (“Heartland has always been public about its ultimate goals — to keep global warming alarmists from winning the public debate.”)

d) The Heartland Institute also tries to undermine the issue of second-hand smoke health hazards or almost anything else that would seem to require governmental rules to control them. The "conferences" that they run on the climate are a joke and always have been.

You might as well cite Paul Hogan as Peter Ferrara.

Popular Science.
*********

The thing is, bambu, there is a clear, vocal, tiny group fighting against the climate scientists, overwhelmingly funded by conservative groups and individuals.

The climate scientists have their voices amplified by the liberals, but are, themselves, largely not funded by liberal sources. They started with their conclusions before we knew it would be a political issue. Nor does their funding depend on agreeing with climate change (including global warming). In fact, there is more money to be made as a contrarian.

"'Smoked too many onesies' isn't mockery of a dead woman? " Likewise, "Some say she was in it for the money."

"If [those don't] sound like mockery to you, that possibly explains a lot of the flack you get here." [It also explains a lot of the flack he doesn't get, due to the inclusion of his handle on 9 ignore lists.]




Many here do choose willful ignorance over any kind of challenge to their views. That's their flaw, not mine.

No, not "any kind," your kind.

Are you familiar with the concept of "axiomatic?" There are certain principles that have been established as basic truth. When someone comes along and constantly flouts the axioms claiming that they are "challenging their views." it isn't incumbent on those who hold to the axioms to re-present the proofs of the axiom. It is the job of the challenger to present their proof.

When the challenger consistently refuses to accept the repeated refutation of their flawed proof it is natural for him to be shunned by the group.

Obviously, you are not on my ignore list (right now). I do find your line of reasoning to be repulsive and boring (mostly boring). I would not, if I were you, consider that to be a badge of honor.    

The day I start to care what you or any of the other self-important twits here think of me personally, has yet to come, nor likely ever will.

The "group" is a circle jerk all wishing to remain self-contained within its chosen echo chamber.

I've never cared to be part of such a fraternity of sheep.

Shun away.

And there's your major malfunction. It isn't "personal," it's logical. What I said can be applied to anyone in any circumstance that chooses to insist that 1+1= Avocado.

Meanwhile, to assert that you don't care what others think of you, while constantly advancing a line of argumentation that has been roundly disproved, is juvenile.

You're in a conversation because you're trying to prove your argument's worth by discrediting another's argument. Which means you care what others think. So to say that you don't (and call others silly names while doing so) is a lie. "You're only fooling yourself."
Thanks, Dad.

WASHINGTON — During a night of heavy drinking at an upscale London bar in May 2016, George Papadopoulos, a young foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, made a startling revelation to Australia’s top diplomat in Britain: Russia had political dirt on Hillary Clinton.

About three weeks earlier, Mr. Papadopoulos had been told that Moscow had thousands of emails that would embarrass Mrs. Clinton, apparently stolen in an effort to try to damage her campaign.

Exactly how much Mr. Papadopoulos said that night at the Kensington Wine Rooms with the Australian, Alexander Downer, is unclear. But two months later, when leaked Democratic emails began appearing online, Australian officials passed the information about Mr. Papadopoulos to their American counterparts, according to four current and former American and foreign officials with direct knowledge of the Australians’ role.


The hacking and the revelation that a member of the Trump campaign may have had inside information about it were driving factors that led the F.B.I. to open an investigation in July 2016 into Russia’s attempts to disrupt the election and whether any of President Trump’s associates conspired.[/I]

US correspondent for CH9 Today Show Australia said this morning...when asked if he thought there would be repercussions from Trump-Washington for Australia because its officials told the FBI about what George Papadopoulos had said to Alexander Downer in the London bar, he said;

Para; "President Trump needs all the friends he can get at the moment as he deals with things like 'North Korea etc', so I think he's not likely to be going to war with Australia".

We can set the table in 2018, but the action is on hold till early 2019. In the meantime democrats need to act more like Mitch McConnell does when there is a black president in office.
A victory in the midterms would definitely go a long way towards holding off many of the Trump legislative efforts, but only a presidential victory in 2020 would mean that the busload of Trump freaks (appointees) could be cleaned out and sent packing. These people (like Scott Pruitt) are doing tremendous damage to all of the agencies they have been appointed to run (destroy). But three more years of Trump feels like a lifetime.
