“We should abolish the Electoral College,” Castro said at a 2020 Democratic candidate forum in Washington on Monday. “It doesn’t reflect the will of the people of the country.”
The science is settled… again…

“The good news is that Antarctica is not currently contributing to sea level rise, but is taking 0.23 millimeters per year away,” Zwally said. “But this is also bad news. If the 0.27 millimeters per year of sea level rise attributed to Antarctica in the IPCC report is not really coming from Antarctica, there must be some other contribution to sea level rise that is not accounted for.”
“The pope’s blessing of the World Government Summit was especially bizarre considering that in 2017, the event took place under the shadow of a replica of the Roman arch in front of the pagan Temple of Ba’al. The monument to the demonic idol, who is frequently referenced in the Bible, originally stood in Palmyra, Syria, a city known in the Bible as Tadmore. Among other concerns, this false pagan god demanded child sacrifices and other horrors that outraged the God of the Bible. While a number of replicas were planned, the very first was prominently displayed at the 2017 World Government Summit, attracting fierce criticism and deep concern among religious scholars — especially in light of the “World Government” motif.
As in previous years, some celebrities showed up to lecture humanity about the alleged need to submit to global governance and sustainable development to supposedly save the planet from humanity. Actor Harrison Ford (shown), for instance, went on a tirade against “nationalism” and “isolationism” after a bizarre segment in which he pretended to speak for “nature.” “I could give a damn with or without humans, I’m the ocean,” Ford said, pretending to be “nature” while speaking in a strange voice. “I covered this entire planet once, and I can always cover it again.” It was not clear whether he intended to refer to the biblical flood of Noah’s time or some other period during which he believes the oceans may have covered the entire planet.”
“Since January 2018, China hasn’t accepted two dozen different recycling materials, such as plastic and mixed paper, unless they meet strict rules around contamination. The imported recycling has to be clean and unmixed – a standard too hard to meet for most American cities.
It is “virtually impossible to meet the stringent contamination standards established in China”, said a spokeswoman for the city of Philadelphia, who added that the cost of recycling has become a “major impact on the city’s budget”, at around $78 a ton. Half of the city’s recycling is now going to the Covanta plant, the spokeswoman said.”
“The sweeping “Green New Deal” proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., could cost as much as $93 trillion, or approximately $600,000 per household, according to a new study co-authored by the former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office.”
The sobering and staggering cost estimate came as Democratic presidential hopeful Kamala Harris pointedly declined in an interview broadcast Sunday to put a price tag on the Green New Deal and “Medicare-for-all,” saying “it’s not about a cost,” but rather return on investment.”
“Ex-Clinton staffers have been eager to call out what they see as Sanders’ lackluster efforts to defeat President Trump, citing his earlier criticism of Clinton and how long he waited before dropping out of the primary. When Sanders finally did withdraw, those Clinton staffers say they expected him to fly commercial “90 percent of the time.” That didn’t happen, as the Clinton campaign’s director of rapid response Zac Petkanas snidely describes:
“I’m not shocked that while thousands of volunteers braved the heat and cold to knock on doors until their fingers bled in a desperate effort to stop Donald Trump, his Royal Majesty King Bernie Sanders would only deign to leave his plush D.C. office or his brand new second home on the lake if he was flown around on a cushy private jet like a billionaire master of the universe.””
