The Truth About Global Warming & Climate Change

Updated on June 4, 2019

James A. Watkins is an entrepreneur, musician, and a writer with three non-fiction books and hundreds of magazine articles read by millions.

Global Warming

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortes says the world will end in 12 years if we do not address Climate Change/Global Warming with her Green New Deal. This has been roundly debunked even by leftist climate change promoting scientists.

Other Leftists/Globalists have suggested anyone who disagrees with the Global Warming/Climate Change Agenda should be arrested, or at least censored.

The average temperature on Earth is currently 61 degrees. A Swedish scientific study has found that the planet was about eight degrees warmer in ancient Roman times, and again in the Middle Ages than it is today. This confounds the propaganda that man-made greenhouse gas emissions are the main drivers of global warming. Scientific research supports the view that there is nothing unusual, unnatural or unprecedented about earth's current level of warmth.

NOAA released studies recently proving that there has actually been no global warming for at least 19 years. However, there has been severe global warming on Mars and Venus. Do you think man caused that?

NASA suggests global cooling, not global warming, is on the way. In the last two years, global average temperatures dropped 0.56°C. NASA scientists say, "Humanity is facing a long, cold winter which could see temperatures across the planet plunge to depressing lows. We fear that sunspot activity on the surface of our star has dropped so low that it could herald the arrival of a uniquely grim mini Ice Age."

I have Found the Secret Source of Global Warming
I have Found the Secret Source of Global Warming

Even if it was True that the Planet is Warming Can Americans Stop it?

Even if it were true that global warming is about to cause a great catastrophe, listen to the blunt truths John Kerry has acknowledged:

"The fact is that even if every American biked to work, carpooled to school, used only solar panels to power their homes, if we each planted a dozen trees, if we somehow eliminated all of our domestic greenhouse gas emissions, guess what — that still wouldn't be enough to offset the carbon pollution coming from the rest of the world.

"If all the industrial nations went down to zero emissions — remember what I just said, all the industrial emissions went down to zero emissions — it wouldn't be enough, not when more than 65 percent of the world's carbon pollution comes from the developing world."

Globalists Are Behind It

The Club of Rome, a think tank for Globalists with close ties to the Climate Change Agenda, stated on page 75 of its publication ‘The First Global Revolution,' way back in 1990:

"In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself." The passage appears under the subtitle, ‘The Common Enemy Of Humanity Is Man.'

Bill Nye the Science Guy – who is not a scientist but a comedian playing a scientist – produced a video that is widely used by public school teachers to indoctrinate the young—to scare them actually—to believe man is killing the planet and we've got to stop him now.

According to Nye—whom teachers tell children is the authority on all things scientific—flooding, thunderstorms, fires, tornadoes, blizzards, and even terrorism are caused by global warming. If it is dry, it is global warming. If it is wet, it is global warming. If it is hot, it is global warming. If it is cold, it is global warming. What this is is the use of science—phony science at that—as a political tool to push a particular agenda: Globalism — a New World Order.

Was Al Gore Right?

Making dire predictions is easy. Al Gore's 2006 documentary An Inconvenient Truth and the 2008 ABC special Earth 2100 made some prognostications we ought to revisit. By this year, sea levels were supposed to have risen by 20 feet. LOL. The ice sheets of Antarctica and Greenland should be gone. Greenland is the same, Antarctica has gained ice. Sea levels have been slowly rising ever since man has measured sea levels.

Gore said hurricanes like Katrina would be commonplace by now. The opposite happened. From the day Gore made his prediction, 12 years went by with no major hurricanes hitting the United States. Tornadoes were supposed to become daily occurrences, but there are fewer of them now. Polar Bears are supposed to be extinct, but there are more today than when Al Gore was born. The Arctic was going to be completely melted by now, but it has gained more ice.

New York City should be underwater by now, but there it is. Gasoline is supposed to be $9 a gallon and milk $13 a gallon. Shorelines were supposed to have moved way inland, wiping out ports and coastal cities all across America. We were going to be plagued by pestilence and disease. Has it happened?

Don't Do What I Do; Do What I Command You To Do

The fact is Al Gore not long ago bought a mansion on the same beach he claimed was about to disappear, an odd investment if he believes what he says. An odd place to live if he believes it is about to be swept away.

Why do leftists congregate on the coasts when according to global warming the coasts will soon be under water? Why aren't they selling before property values plummet or before the property disappears altogether? Why aren't they moving inland to escape the apocalypse? Because they know Climate Change is bunk.

Al Gore and his fellow hypocrite Hollywood stars leave gigantic carbon footprints with their massive multiple mansions and private jets while they lecture us on all we should do without, such as basic transportation and heat.

Just one of Gore's mansions burns 21 times the fossil fuels of the average home. In one month, his Nashville residence used as much energy as I do in three years. Al Gore uses as much electricity as six families use per year just to heat his swimming pool.

Falsified Data

There is no data proving that global warming is taking place and no evidence that humankind is changing the temperature of Earth. There is hard evidence suggesting that changes in climate are determined by the sun—you know, that massive ball of heat and radiation at the center of our solar system the size of 1.3 million Earths.

In fact, the Left, with its globalist agenda, has been falsifying evidence to pull off a gigantic global warming hoax. A brand new peer-reviewed bombshell study concludes that three key global temperature data sets used in recent climate change models have been ‘adjusted'—that's falsified to folks like us—in such a way as to not be ‘a valid representation of reality.'

The study, entitled ‘On the Validity of NOAA, NASA and Hadley CRU Global Average Surface Temperature Data & The Validity of EPA's CO2 Endangerment Finding,' states:

"The EPA's conclusions based off of all three GAST data sets were ‘invalidated.' Nearly all of the warming shown in the data sets are accounted for by the ‘adjustments' made by scientists to past temperatures. The conclusive findings of this research are that the three GAST data sets are not a valid representation of reality.

"In fact, the magnitude of their historical data adjustments, that removed their cyclical temperature patterns, are totally inconsistent with published and credible U.S. and other temperature data. Thus, it is impossible to conclude from the three published GAST data sets that recent years have been the warmest ever — despite current claims of record-setting warming."

Obama Said 99.5% or 97% of Scientists Agree about Global Warming: But was that True?

Obama claimed that 99.5% of scientists and experts believe human beings cause climate change. There is no study claiming that 99.5% of scientists and experts agree with the climate change thesis, and even the - widely quoted in the media - study claiming a 97% consensus of scientists is total bunk.

Investigative journalists at Popular Technology reported that the '97% Study' falsely classified scientists' papers as supporting the global warming hypothesis - according to the scientists who published the papers. A more extensive examination by the New American reported that out of the nearly 12,000 scientific papers evaluated, only 65 endorsed the alarmist position. That is less than 0.97%.

According to the American Thinker: "The famous statement of ‘97% of climate scientists agree that man's activities cause warming' is so fatuous and misleading as to be without value.

"It's the classic example of a popular, neat-sounding cliché being repeated often enough that it's accepted as ‘true,' regardless of the actual facts.

"When one drills down deep into the study that produced the 97% figure, it turns out that it's not 97% of 12,000 climate scientists as popularly reported, but instead 77 of 79 self-identified climate scientists who had already taken a position in favor of human-caused warming and had also published more than 50% of their peer-reviewed papers. That's where the 97% comes from -- 77 out of 79, not 97% of 12,000!"

Maybe the Sun Affects our Climate

"Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organizational Studies.

"By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.

"The survey results show geoscientists (also known as earth scientists) and engineers hold similar views as meteorologists.

"Two recent surveys of meteorologists revealed similar skepticism of alarmist global warming claims." ~ FORBES

Carbon Dioxide: The New Boogeyman

Carbon Dioxide has become the Boogeyman for the Left. However, is it a bad thing? Is it even a pollutant? Isn't it non-toxic?

Plants cannot live and flourish without carbon dioxide. I breathe it all the time with no ill effects. People with greenhouses pump it into their nurseries, tripling the amount of it so that their plants will grow stronger and healthier.

The current level of CO2 is 95% lower than at earlier times in our planet's history. United Nations climate scientists say even higher levels of CO2 would be better for us, "beneficial for both humanity and the biosphere generally."

Who is Polluting the Planet?

The Left loves to paint America as the culprit behind global pollution. However, is it true? No. According to the World Health Organization, the United States is among the cleanest countries in the world. Our air is "significantly cleaner in fact than the air in Germany, Italy, Switzerland, the UK, Japan, Austria, and France."

America's air is much less polluted "than that of any other country in the G7, except Canada with its scant population."

America has more cities than any other nation among the least polluted in the world. The most polluted cities are in India, China, Saudi Arabia, Russia, and Pakistan. Sixty percent of cities in Europe fail to meet air pollution standards, three times the percentage in America.

The United States gave $1 Billion to the Global Green Climate Fund, but the world's top polluters gave nothing. China and India are the world's worst polluters by far, with China accounting for 28% of the world's pollution all by itself. As noted by the Heritage Foundation:

"For every ton of reduced pollution the United States emits, China and India produce almost ten more tons. This means it doesn't really matter how much America reduces its greenhouse gases because China and India cancel out any and all progress we make.

"Those who think they are helping save the planet by purchasing an electric car or putting a solar panel on their roof, or trying to shut down coal production in the United States are barking up the wrong tree. If we want to stop greenhouse gases, there is no way to make progress without China and India on board—which they clearly are not."

President Trump Leads the Way to a Cleaner Earth

Since the Election of President Trump, America has led the world in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Without a carbon tax, without cap and trade, without signing the Kyoto Treaty, and after pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord, America reduced emissions more than any country in the world, according to the BP Statistical Review of World Energy. Meanwhile, the countries that signed the Paris Agreement have broken all their promises.

Democrats wailed that President Trump was "going kill the planet," but emissions have decreased under his administration. However, the European Union has significantly increased emissions of carbon dioxide since Trump won the election.

Paris Accord Flop
Paris Accord Flop

President Trump Pulled Out of the Paris Climate Accord

Thank God that President Trump got us out of the Paris Agreement.

American taxpayers would have been on the hook for $1 Trillion per year. The biggest polluters on the planet would have paid zero. Our natural gas production and manufacturing would have been cut 20-25%, along with a 70% cut in the production of clean coal, iron ore, and steel.

The price of everything would have gone up, especially energy. Millions of jobs would have been lost. It was a horrible deal that only could be liked by those who hate America and all it stands for.

The Paris Accord was a deal not to save the environment but to make the United States the piggy bank of the world. We got nothing from it. Wouldn't you rather have us keep our jobs, low energy costs and figure out a way to increase making clean coal like we've been doing?

Meanwhile, the biggest polluter, China, didn't have to cut emissions until the year 2030 and can produce as many coal plants as they want. The next biggest polluter is India, and they only agreed to that treaty because they are getting hundreds of billions of dollars over the next few years to be in the deal.

We have some of the cleanest air and water in the world, some of the highest standards, and we have to dish out Trillions to other countries while at the same time losing millions of our own jobs and prices skyrocketing here? Oh, by the way, this deal, if followed by every country precisely as written, would drop the temperature 2/10ths of one-degree Celsius by the year 2100. ARE YOU KIDDING ME!?

      I did too, but mine are Trumplicans Rubio and Scott - they don't care about truth and justice.

      BTW. Harrison (Graham's likely opponent) is SC; I am in FL but I am giving him money anyway. More than likely I'll max out my donation sometime before Nov. because I think he has a reasonable chance of beating #BraindeadGraham.

      I think the Democrats have years of fodder to beat Republicans over their heads during each up coming election. Not voting for necessary evidence and testimony that ALL other trials ALWAYS have was simply self-destructive.

      Gardner is gone

      McSally is gone

      Ernst has a much better chance of losing

      Tillis has a much better chance of losing

      Even Graham may have issues in SC after this; his major opponent (who I am sending contributions to) managed to get within 2 points of Graham in the last poll.

      Where did you answer my question about the grand jury, T? That's completely false and you know it. You never answer questions and you're avoiding answering mine.

      I've looked back and you've made not the slightest attemp to address my query. You simply make excuses because you can't. Anyone can see you're mistaken about that.

      But as I said earlier, you cannot anwer without making a fool out of yourself. Nothing new!

      Now you are concentrating on deflection. Answering your question was a deflection from the start, I answered it and so you came up with another question to deflect. Do you really think we are duped by your constant antics, which you do whenever you are stumped, embarrassed or proven wrong. It really is a bore. I thought you weren’t going to waste your time anymore on James’ comment section? For the second time lol.

      And you have no clue as to what you're talking about,T. You're the one deflecting because you don't even have an attempted answer to my query. Back up your claim if you can!

      But just as I predicted, Your'e not intelligent enough to even broach the subject or you would have tried. No surprise to anyone who's ever dealt with you. All talk!

      Just as I predicted! Lol

      You can’t make this up!

      The first thing he does is whine that I didn’t answer his question which is just what I predicted he’d do!

      And he still hasn’t had an answer to my question which I haven’t shown to be BS.

      Actually he tried to change his answer three times each after I demonstrated it made no sense!

      Well that’s your brain Randy, you’re stuck with it.

      Did you really think I believed you'd answer my question, T? There's no way you're smart enough to. You cannot even explain why the House ran the Impeachment proceedings as they did. LOL!

      I could go on humoring you and answering your questions, but you'll never answer mine because you cannot without looking like a fool.

      And whining is your MO, not mine.

    • tsadjatko profile image

      So now you’re deflecting - if no one believes their impeachment will possibly work which is what you said is the case then they are neglecting their constitutional duties ignoring everything to waste everybody’s time and resources. Well excuse me, they aren’t actually wasting them, what they are doing is exactly what they are accusing Trump of doing, using the government to attack a political opponent. That’s all they are doing, ironic but true.

      i’ll answer your question once you give one believable answer to mine instead of changing the subject, then deflecting which I predicted you would do so instead of giving the honest answer to my original question which is since they know impeachment won’t remove Trump they are using the government process to malign their greatest political opponent ever. That’s the answer Randy, but I know your brain is just not capable of honest reasoning.

      So what’s your next tactic? I suppose now you’ll just whine on and on that I won’t answer your question knowing that you really don’t want to hear any honest answer to any question.

      The House took an oath to protect the Constitution and they did so, despite their knowing the Republicans would not honor their oaths.

      Are you suggesting the House not do their sworn duty, despite the outcome? If so, they'd be just as bad as Trump. Nice dodge, now answer my query if you can.

    • tsadjatko profile image

      9 hours ago from now on

      I knew you’d deflect. I can always predict how you will react, I’ve done it over and over.

      Your answer is not an answer to my question. My question was why would they go down the road of impeachment at all when they knew it wouldn’t work. Even you believe their goal to remove Trump Will not be achieved. My question wasn’t why don’t they wait! See you restated my question creating a straw man and then answered a question that was not my original question but a follow up.

      And your answer is a joke in any event because when you say

      “because they knew Trump would continue to abuse his power and meddle in the upcoming election.“

      you are saying their goal wasn’t to remove Trump but to what? Stop him from abuse of power?

      How has this impeachment that they know won’t work stopped him from abusing power or “meddling” in an election months away when he doesn’t even have a challenger?

      So that answer is a fail from any point of view. You even then say:

      “He has, and is doing so, as we speak. Why is he hiding evidence of his innocence if he's lily white?”

      So in your answer you actually contradict your answer by stating embarking on a failed impeachment hasn’t stopped him from abusing power!

      Randy, is there anything else you want to say that demonstrates your affliction of arrested brain development or should we just be satisfied now with your signature move of sticking out your tongue.

      “Reminder that recent polls show the public strongly backs having witnesses at the Senate trial:

      Morning Consult/Politico: 57%-24%

      CNN: 69%-26%

      Wash Post/ABC News: 71%-22%”

      This is why. For the people, not only Trump and his 30%

      Okay fine, I'll answer your question and you answer mine. I'd like that fine. Your question as to why the House didn't wait, was because they knew Trump would continue to abuse his power and meddle in the upcoming election.

      He has, and is doing so, as we speak. Why is he hiding evidence of his innocence if he's lily white?

      Okay your turn, how does a grand jury operate and where does it take place? Are defense attorneys allowed to ask questions in the jury room? Easy peasy!

      Nice dodge Randy. Could have predicted that, you do that every time you’re stumped.

      You answer my question first. You can answer it, can’t you? or have I stumped you again.

      Ok I’ll answer your question just so you won’t keep using it as a dodge.

      It’s a sham for many reasons but as far as you and the Democrats are concerned it is a sham because you all know it won’t work. For whatever reason you have admitted it yourself, even you don’t believe it will remove Trump - you said it! That is the goal right. Why pursue this when you don’t believe it will work?

      Now quit your usual dodge of changing the subject or deflecting and you answer my question, I answered yours.

      So be it.

      But this? We will not allow one man to rule us all. Not in a trillion years.

      And if we do, we deserve what we get.

      So then, I’ll assume Randy you do speak for Scott and he doesn’t believe this sham Impeachment will remove Trump either.

      So if you don’t believe in impeachment but have this absolute faith “the whole story will come out about Trump's criminal activity. His taxes are due to be released in March, and McGahn will eventually appear before the House committee.“

      Then why didn’t the Democrats simply wait for that to happen instead of wasting everybody’s time, resources and effort on an impeachment they know will not remove Trump? That is the goal, right?

      For that matter if you are so absolutely sure the whole story about Trump’s criminal activity is coming why don’t the Democrats just get rid of him in the next election? Do you really think the electorate will vote for a President whose whole criminal story is out?

      Hard to imagine that if he cheated on his taxes the IRS wouldn’t have charged him years ago but if you, Randy, are so sure, stop lying about what I will do and tell me what possible reason was there to embark on this sham impeachment everyone, even you, knows won’t work?

      Explain that to me.

      There's no doubt the Senate Republicans will cover up for the criminal, T. But down the road a bit--not too far I predict--the whole story will come out about Trump's criminal activity. His taxes are due to be released in March, and McGahn will eventually appear before the House committee.

      But you won't care at all, and in fact, will be proud to allow a criminal to to continue to corrupt the Constitution. Be proud!

      No, of course not. Trump party has zero integrity, honesty or honor. No, I think he’ll resign once the Deutche bank stuff hits the press. And didn’t they get his financials?

      And I think Repubs will be voted out en mass. We like our co- equal branches of gvt. I think the presidential branch will have some things taken away....also, much more strident vetting before picking the nominee.

      Tax returns

      Mental health screening

      All foreign entanglements made public

      Forums has a new member....sounds mighty like an old one. Sick of these tricks they play. Another one joined two weeks ago. Already helped chase someone off. *sigh*

      I don’t have tv, but I’m reading on twitter how really great the dems did in making their case.

      Granted, I have sucka free twitter(not on trump love time), but I’m talking respected lawyers and professionals in their own right.

      What Im scared for is my grandson. The kids locked up at the border. The people with deadly illnesses who won’t get the medicine they need. I’m scared for some prominant people who have been outspoken against Caligula......they’ve taken over the justice system, and the Supreme Court.

      BUT......too bad. They’re not going to win. More of us than of them. Clearly.

      And it’s time to update the Constitution. We’re living under some bad, outdated rules.

      The time of white man god rule is coming to an end. Hear ye, hear ye.

      And these stingy, fringy creeps have got to go.

      God is love. When do they remember that? When do they honor that?

      Let them all dig their own graves. Or maybe that’s what they’re trying to avoid? How else to explain them throwing away their values, unless they are scared to death themselves?

      I have been scared, felt threatened, so I don’t downplay that at all. And if they threaten your family, you will do what they say.

      Our country is under seige. And the screaming fan club is clueless.

      I don’t care what your “issue” is, take the gd blinders off. They seem to think they won’t be touched by this chthonic force. Think again.

      We hold these truths to be self- evident:

      You ain’t better! We are equal! Knock it off!!!!!

      FBI is Trumpland

      https://thehill.com/opinion/campaign/371755-davis-...

      All you offer is hate."

      -- This is untrue, ridiculous and it doesn't comport with the facts.

      -- Comey kept Hillary Clinton out of prison by letting her off in 2016.

      -- Comey admitted she violated the USC 18 statute and then said no prosecutor would charge here. This was a lie and a false statement.

      -- As FBI director this wasn't Comey's call, the protocol is that the FBI submits their findings to the DOJ.

      -- The DOJ AG makes that call.

      -- But the DOJ AG was colluding with Bill Clinton in a secret meeting on a tarmac making sure that Hillary Clinton wouldn't be charged by the FBI.

      -- If that was Bill Barr and not Loretta Lynch the democrats would have whined and ranted. But democrats are above the law and that is substantiated by history.

      -- Hillary Clinton while under a Subpoena Duces Tecum for her email server. Deleted more than 33,000 emails from the private, unsecured server.

      -- The democrats as they have done to Trump and republicans would have whined and requested more and more investigations.

      -- Then she had the disk drivers on her private servers scrubbed so that no forensic search could be investigated.

      -- They she physically destroyed them and other devices.

      -- Was her yoga emails so damning that she needed to do a scorched earth policy?

      -- Then shortly before the election the SE FBI district found

      "On Sept. 26, 2016, the FBI executed a search warrant on former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s iPhone, iPad and laptop computer, and discovered 141,000 emails on the laptop that were potentially relevant to the FBI’s closed investigation of Clinton.

      Longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin was married to Weiner at the time."

      -- James Comey held onto this information for a month, until the SE NY FBI pressured him to do something.

      -- That is why he had to reopen the Hillary Clinton investigation and then summarily close it again. Once more allowing Hillary Clinton to run in the election.

      -- There is no way that the FBI cleared 141,000 emails in less than a week.

      -- The bigger question is how did that US government emails get on Weiner's computer? Some of it was classified and he didn't have that classification.

      -- So those are the facts that lm left out.

      -- James Comey, Andrew McCabe and others were the reason that president Trump while doing nothing illegal was investigated during the election, and after the election, and into his presidency.

      -- So another false whine from lm.

      -- Hate she says, what then is over three years of resistance and a goal of impeachment. That goal started after Trump won the election as I have written here many times.

      --lm fact matter but on that basis you and your boys don't matter.

      Democrats accuse McConnell of rigging Trump's impeachment trial

      -- What a joke, after they rigged the Impeachment process, they are pissed that they can't also rig the senate trial.

      "Trump's trial on abuse of power and obstruction of Congress charges begins in earnest in the Republican-controlled Senate on Tuesday in a rare use of the constitutional mechanism for ousting a president.

      The Democratic-led House of Representatives approved the charges last month on a party-line vote."

      -- The impeachment was pure partisan democrats, and they way they impeached the president could have been even if he wore a blue tie.

      -- Their partisan impeachment yet another democrats mockery of the constitution.

      -- The democrats have done nothing but pursue Resistance with the goal of impeachment.

      -- And for three years, and multiple investigations they found nothing to impeach the president. Then in the fear of the upcoming 2020 election they grabbed at any straws.

      -- They used a CIA operative and Schiff colluded with the operative to concoct an impeachment complaint.

      -- The democrats had to change the whistle blower complaint rules to even get the complaint filed. That is because this whistle blower wasn't a party to the phone call.

      -- The whistle blower had 2nd, third or farther hearsay of the phone call.

      -- We don't even know if any of the whistle blower's sources were on the phone. That is because the whistle blower that Adam Schiff said must testify wasn't allowed to be called as a witness by the republicans.

      -- The phone call has nothing of impeachable acts to warrant an investigation much less an impeachment.

      -- Now the democrats who abused their majority and its power in the House, now are whining that they can't abuse the power of the senate as they did in the House.

      -- For over three years the democrat party has done nothing for the people or the country.

      -- They had one goal and that was to remove a duly elected sitting president of the United States.

      -- This goal was the same kind of goal they had when they split the country and caused the US Civil War.

      -- Then they didn't care about the country or the people they only cared about slaves.

      -- Today they only care about Illegal Aliens.

      -- Even Convicted Illegal Alien Felons.

      If the democrats were ever to be successful in removing the president or any president on the basis of this kind of impeachment then we have truly regenerated their Civil War as they have no regard for the US Constitution, the Rule of Law and the American Way.

      https://nypost.com/2020/01/18/how-five-members-of-...

      Washington insiders operate by a proven credo: when a Peter Schweizer book drops, duck and brace for impact.

      For over a decade, the work of five-time New York Times bestselling investigative reporter Peter Schweizer has sent shockwaves through the political universe.

      Clinton Cash revealed the Clintons’ international money flow, exposed global corruption, and sparked an FBI investigation. Secret Empires exposed bipartisan corruption and launched congressional investigations. And Throw Them All Out and Extortion prompted passage of the STOCK Act. Indeed, Schweizer’s “follow the money” bombshell revelations have been featured on the front pages of the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, and regularly appear on national news programs, including 60 Minutes.

      Now Schweizer and his team of seasoned investigators turn their focus to the nation’s top progressives—politicians who strive to acquire more government power to achieve their political ends.

      Can they be trusted with more power?

      In Profiles in Corruption, Schweizer offers a deep-dive investigation into the private finances, and secrets deals of some of America’s top political leaders. And, as usual, he doesn’t disappoint, with never-before-reported revelations that uncover corruption and abuse of power—all backed up by a mountain of corporate documents and legal filings from around the globe. Learn about how they are making sweetheart deals, generating side income, bending the law to their own benefits, using legislation to advance their own interests, and much more.

      Profiles in Corruption contains tomorrow’s headlines.

      About the Author

      Peter Schweizer is the president of the Government Accountability Institute and the former William J. Casey Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University. He is a number one New York Times bestselling author whose books have been translated into eleven languages.

      It was Hillary Clinton and the DNC using dirt from the Russians and Ukraine that influenced the 2016 election.

      Trump was exonerated from Russia Trump collusion after 5 investigations over three years. These investigations not only interfered with the 2016 election, but they also interfered with Trump doing his job as President. And it continues today with a Resistance that was boasted by the democrats even before he was inaugurated.

      Stop making this feeble connection to Russia with Trump, the truth is that it was Hillary and the DNC.

      ---------------------

      One more thing about the faux democrat impeachment of President Trump.

      Saying that the House gave President Trump a chance to mount a defense is meaningless.

      The House was doing the investigation, and not the trial. The time for the defense is in the Trial.

      For the House to make this statement dispenses with the constitutional precept of the presumption of innocence until proven guilty in a court of law.

      They did the same thing in the Kavanaugh hearing.

      The democrats only want the constitution when it favors them, and not when it works against them.

      They talk about following the Rule of Law, and the Constitution but when it comes to attacking republicans or President Trump, it means nothing to them.

      As for vp Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden, why shouldn't the DOJ investigate them involving any corruption they may be associated with in Ukraine.

      Remember that vp Biden was Obama's point man in Ukraine when $7 Billion of aid when missing?

      Trump was investigated 5 times in three years on less than this so why should a democrat be above the law.

      Once Biden was one of 30 democrat candidates for the DNC nomination for the presidency in 2020. This doesn't mean that he was President Trump's opponent.

      He was the opponent for 29 other democrats.

      Saying that he was the opponent of President Trump a year away from the DNC convention is stretching it.

      Under those timelines would you say that all 30 democrat candidates were opponents of President Trump for the 2020 election. Even considering that only one of them would be nominated by the DNC?

      I don't think so. It is clear that President Trump when he used "US" and "Our Country" in conjunction with Favor that he was representing the US in investigating the American link with the known corruption of Ukraine during the Obama administration.

      ********************* "After more than four years of investigation, Starr filed the Starr Report, which alleged that Bill Clinton lied about the existence of the affair during a sworn deposition. " *************************

      The democrats are upset once again that they didn't get their way with McConnell in the Senate.

      While he is using the base of the Clinton impeachment trial, he has accelerated it.

      "The impeachment of Bill Clinton was initiated on October 8, 1998, when the United States House of Representatives voted to commence impeachment proceedings against Bill Clinton, the 42nd president of the United States, for "high crimes and misdemeanors"

      "Length of Time The impeachment trial of President Bill Clinton was held in 1999. It began on January 7 and ended on February 12, with an acquittal. Thus, the Clinton trial lasted for just about a month.

      -- The impeachment lasted 3 months

      -- The trial lasted 5 weeks

      The Trump impeachment was 48 day compared to Clinton's 90 days.

      The Trump trial could be as short as 2 weeks, to Clintons 5 weeks.

      So the Impeachment for Trump was way fast, now the democrats are upset because the Senate trial for Trump may be fast.

      "Sep 12, 2018 · Ken Starr, who was the special counsel in charge of investigating President Bill Clinton in the 1990s, said Wednesday he had considered filing ***perjury charges***

      against then-first lady Hillary Clinton following her deposition in 1995."

      "The Starr Report, presented on Sept. 9,1998,

      presented ***11*** impeachable offenses.

      Bill Clinton was eventually charged because he "...willfully provided perjuries, false and misleading testimony to the grand jury," and made "...corrupt efforts to influence the testimony of witnesses and to impede the discovery of evidence."

      The first of the possible offenses presented in the Starr Report was that President Clinton had *** lied ****under oath

      during the civil case when he denied any sort of sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky.

      The President *** also lied under oath to the grand jury ***

      about his sexual relations with Ms. Lewinsky.

      He *** also lied in a civil deposition***

      about ever having been alone with Ms. Lewinsky and the gifts that he had exchanged with her.

      There was*** evidence **** of him discussing the Jones case with Ms. Lewinsky as well.

      Throughout the course of the Jones case, Bill Clinton *** obstructed justice with Ms. Lewinsky**** by jointly concealing the truth of their relationship.

      Clinton *** attempted to obstruct justice ***

      by helping Monica Lewinsky get a job in New York when her witness could be detrimental if she told the truth in the Jones case.

      The President *** lied again under oath ***

      in his discussions with Vernon Jordan regarding Ms. Lewinsky's involvement in the Jones case.

      Following this civil disposition,

      President Clinton*** attempted to tamper with a potential witness*** by influencing his secretary. Refusing to testify for seven months was an attempt to obstruct justice during the grand jury investigation.

      I started noticing couple years ago, their reporting was getting odd.....one day they said “full disclosure, we use Kaspersky security”. So I looked it up.

      Yes Brad, catch up. Sanders is in the business of destroying democrats. Last time he said Hillary was unqualified, and trump ran with that, too,

      Trump + sanders+ Russia = take over of America.

      Catch up! Did u miss the smear job he did on Warren? He’s vlad’s boy, just like Donald.

      The democrats and the media keep saying

      what the facts already show about his campaign of pressure on Ukraine

      -- What campaign?

      -- What pressure?

      -- This impeachment started with the WB complaint's not first hand of the phone call.

      -- The phone call doesn't have any pressure, and Zelinsky said that.

      -- What more do you need to acquit?

      -- The WB didn't testify after President Trump release the transcript of the phone call. Why didn't he testify? Was it because he didn't even get accurate hearsay about the phone call?

      -- Can anyone that read the phone call transcript really say that there was any pressure or that there was actually any request to open any new investigations, or was it really for Ukraine to let us know what was the result of their investigation.

      -- How do you pressure someone when they don't know it?

      Of course the three leftists here ignore these facts because they don't have an answer, and neither do the democrats that impeached the president.

      Silence on their part is just verification they have nothing but hate, and no truths.

      Pelosi fists bumps Bill Maher and say with a smile and he is impeached for life.

      He was impeached by an all democrat vote and not because of any impeachable acts.

      And all of the analysts on election night all predicted that Trump would get 271 EC votes.

      Todd, you are projecting you know, go ahead and admit it. Intelligent people watch anything but Fake Fox Opinion, Brietbart, Hannity, Limbaugh and their ilk.

      Actually, studies repeatedly show CNN is much more trusted than Fake Fox. Granted, CNN is below ABC, NBC, and CBS in trustworthiness, but only by a little bit. The only major news program Fox did better than, and it surprises the hell out of me, is NPR.

      Actually Todd, they are not. You make the same mistake your side always makes, you don't look at all of the data. A few days before election, after Comey and the Russians had their impact, the pollS tightened up considerably. They showed MN, PA, and MI were a draw. Only WI was in Clinton's camp. Trump barely won PA, MI, and WI while barely losing MN.

      So how were the polls wrong?????

      Did any other state come in different than what the polls showed??? NO!!!!

      So please admit you don't know what you are talking about.

      Yes, I did watch Jewel and your comment proves another thing about your side (actually extremists in general) you live by anecdote, not on comprehensive data.

      Can anyone really believe that articles of impeachment against President Trump have any facts, basis, foundation, evidence or relevance to remove Trump or any president.

      -------------------------------------------------------------

      " Democrats who will prosecute the case against President Donald Trump in the Senate impeachment trial said there was "overwhelming" evidence that he was guilty of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress and called him a danger to the country's national security. "Z

      -- What overwhelming evidence?

      -- Certainly none of the witnesses that testified in the Schiff hearing, or the Nadler hearing.

      -- Only one fact and fist hand knowledge witness and that was Sondland.

      -- His testimony was that President Trump said he didn't want anything from Ukraine.

      -- The others weren't second, third or fourth hand witnesses like the Whistle blower.

      -- These other witnesses when testifying were asked if any of them had any evidence of President Trump committing any crime. They all said NO.

      -- Four constitutional scholars that testified befor the Nadler hearing weren't fact witnesses. Three of them were biased against the president.

      -- The fourth Jonathan Turley of George Washington University was another democrat who voted for Obama and Clinton. He told the House that their impeachment was weak and they shouldn't be doing it.

      "President Trump’s misconduct presents a danger to our democratic processes, "

      -- The following statement by the House prosecutors is baed not on fact but on their inference and reading beyond the content of the phone call.

      -- The House is guilty of changing the House process, holding the impeachment in a secret bunker in the capitol. Not releaing the transcripts of those interviewed in the secret bunker in a timely manner.

      -- Even though it was held in a secret bunker, everyday the democrats leaked snippets cast in their light to the press.

      -- Republicans were not allowed to get copies of the transcripts as the democrats didn't share them.

      -- The democrats wouldn't let the republicans call their own witnesses.

      -- Schiff and Nadler would stop the republicans during their interview and tell them they couldn't ask those questions.

      -- They also refused the republicans request to call the Whistle Blower.

      -- The democrats kept changing and not following their own process.

      -- And yet they say that President Trump is a danger to the US democratic process.

      -- The democratic process involves the presumption of innocence but the democrats demanded that the President prove his innocence?

      "our national security,"

      -- How is this a matter of national security?

      -- For six years Ukraine was without the military aid from the US.

      -- When Russia in 2014 invaded Ukraine, president Barack Obama refused to give Ukraine the military aid they begged for.

      -- Obama said they weren't part of NATO and he didn't want to upset Putin.

      -- Now like the 90 day wait for that President Trump asked for to properly vet immigrants coming from 6 Middle Eastern Countries that were in military actions, the democrats couldn't wait.

      -- Now we have a two month delay and it become a national security issue? Don't think so.

      " and our commitment to the rule of law."

      -- What commitment to what rule of law are they talking about here?

      -- They don't follow the US Constitution, and neither of the two articles of impeachment mention any crimes.

      -- The Impeachment Clause of the US Constitution was a verious serious clause, and this is only the fourth time in our history that it was used to impeach a president.

      -- Without any crimes in the articles of impeachment how could they satisfy the High Crimes threshold of the constitution.

      -- The threshold of the abuse of power is so low, it would be hard to find any president in our history that couldn't have been impeached using it.

      -- The obstruction of congress article is based on the democrats own rush to finish the impeachment and not wait for the court to decide on President Trump executive privilege.

      -- I haven't read the 111 pages, but I did read both articles of impeachment and this is going to be all story in the kind of a fable. They don't have evidence, and like Schiff did when he read his version of the phone call into the congressional record, he Lied.

      The congressional record is not for paradies!

      " He must be removed from office," the seven House managers wrote a 111-page filing summarizing their opening arguments for the trial."

      -- They should all be disbarred as was Clinton as well as go before the congressional ethics for a hearing.

      -- They are actually guilty of what they claim about President Trump that they actually have been doing this for three years purely for political gain.

      Trump acquitted!

      You three keep talking about a fair Trial in the Senate, but where was the fair impeachment in the House?

      Also for the senate trial is it Fair for the four senators running for Trump's job to actually be a juror and vote on removal?

      What about the other senators that dropped out of the race but also ran for the presidency? How is that fair?

      Why should Adam Schiff be allowed to prosecute Trump in the Senate trial, when he is also a FACT Witness?

      Once again, I assume you three will ignore these questions as you have in the past.

      Ignoring them now means you don't have any answers!

      Bolton was NOT subpoenaed..

      None of the witnesses that the house wants to bring in the senate can contradict the phone call. Because it is the phone call and Zelinsky's comment during the phone call and in interviews after the phone call that are the facts, the evidence, and they show NO impeachable acts.

      The latest poll has 51% of Americans (48% of Independents) wanting Trump removed from office. Most impressive is that is UP from 36% a few months ago - people are getting smarter.

      58% said he Abused his Power

      57% said he Obstructed Congress

      69% said there should be witnesses

      59% of women want Trump removed from office

      86% of blacks want Trump removed from office

      65% of Hispanics want Trump removed from office

      You know who doesn't want him removed? Trumplicans.
