As soon as the clock struck noon today, Team Trump had all White House website references to climate change deleted faster than Hillary Clinton’s emails.
EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
Donald Trump met this week with representatives of the New York Times – a publication the President-Elect has repeatedly denounced as a far left, biased, and ultimately, failing publication. Part of that meeting was a discussion on Mr. Trump’s views regarding climate change. And from that discussion, the Mainstream Media is now blaring the following headline:
President-Elect Trump has long been a skeptical voice of reason in the ongoing discussion of human-made global warming/climate change, which in turn has made him an enemy of media outlets like the New York Times that earn millions of advertising dollars from Middle East funding that continues to push the climate change agenda in an attempt to curtail U.S. independent energy production.
With that said, here is the Mainstream Media getting caught red-handed fabricating news in an attempt to create a wedge between Trump and his now-growing base of voter support.
Mr. Trump did not engage in any backflipping on the issue. Far from it. In fact, he directly challenged the NYT representatives more than once – but those challenges are being omitted, left out of the false narrative that somehow Trump is now agreeing with the false premise of human-caused global warming.
NYT columnist Arthur Sulzberger attempts to blame bad weather on climate change. Trump quickly counters by reminding Sulzberger that New York has always dealt with bad weather:
Yes, we have ALWAYS had storms. That is a President-Elect dismissing outright the claim that bad weather is proof positive of human-made global warming/climate change. The media neglected to include this exchange in their “Trump flip flops on climate change” coverage.
Donald Trump brings up the ClimateGate scandal in which scientists were caught manipulating data in order to promote a global warming agenda – and keep their funding coming:
“My uncle was for 35 years a professor at M.I.T. He was a great engineer, scientist. He was a great guy. And he was … a long time ago, he had feelings — this was a long time ago — he had feelings on this subject. It’s a very complex subject. I’m not sure anybody is ever going to really know. I know we have, they say they have science on one side but then they also have those horrible emails that were sent between the scientists. Where was that, in Geneva or wherever five years ago? Terrible. Where they got caught, you know, so you see that and you say, what’s this all about. I absolutely have an open mind. I will tell you this: Clean air is vitally important. Clean water, crystal clean water is vitally important. Safety is vitally important.”
Trump is taking a nuanced approach to the issue, admitting, like most of us, her does in fact care very much about clean air and water, while also indicating how the global warming debate has been deeply flawed by institutionalized corruption from within. To date, no American president has been willing to discuss the subject in these terms – common sense skepticism. And again, the Mainstream Media has left this exchange out of its coverage and described nuance as back-flipping.
Here is Trump’s answer when pressed about his belief that there is some “connectivity” between human industry and climate change:
“I think right now … well, I think there is some connectivity. There is some, something. It depends on how much.It also depends on how much it’s going to cost our companies. You have to understand, our companies are noncompetitive right now.
They’re really largely noncompetitive. About four weeks ago, I started adding a certain little sentence into a lot of my speeches, that we’ve lost 70,000 factories since W. Bush. 70,000. When I first looked at the number, I said: ‘That must be a typo. It can’t be 70, you can’t have 70,000, you wouldn’t think you have 70,000 factories here.’ And it wasn’t a typo, it’s right. We’ve lost 70,000 factories.
We’re not a competitive nation with other nations anymore. We have to make ourselves competitive. We’re not competitive for a lot of reasons.
That’s becoming more and more of the reason. Because a lot of these countries that we do business with, they make deals with our president, or whoever, and then they don’t adhere to the deals, you know that. And it’s much less expensive for their companies to produce products. So I’m going to be studying that very hard, and I think I have a very big voice in it. And I think my voice is listened to, especially by people that don’t believe in it. And we’ll let you know.”
Trump gives the NYT folks a reasoned, economically-based response, but all the subsequent media reports state are along the lines of Trump admitting to “connectivity” between human activity and climate change, leaving out once again the nuance within Trump’s answer. The President-Elect is saying he’s open to some connectivity, but then also makes clear this pales in comparison to the economic impacts – especially when nations like China will happily sign climate change agreements they have no intention of following in order to gain economic advantage over those countries that do.
The sum total of Trump’s position on the subject is to indicate perhaps humans have some negligible impact on climate, though even that remains unproven, that rampant corruption has been proven to exist within the scientific community who are growing rich off spreading the global warming agenda, and that there are in fact many more scientists who are as skeptical of that same agenda as is Donald Trump.
But none of that is now being reported.
Instead, the Mainstream Media is determined to create dissatisfaction among Trump voters, even as Trump proves what he has long said about his world view. He is a man who leads via a pragmatic, common-sense approach to the task at hand, which is of course in stark contrast to the raving madman this same media attempted to portray him as mere weeks earlier.
DON’T FALL FOR THE MEDIA SPIN.

Barack Obama just announced his intention to act unilaterally to expand federal authority over those who can, and cannot, have access to guns in America. One of the tenets to these new rules is to, according to the President himself, “keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill.”
Given the far left’s view that those who don’t fully subscribe to their belief there is an immediate danger to the world from global warming/climate change, is it such a stretch to assume Mr. Obama is not willing to classify “climate change deniers” as mentally unfit to own firearms?
The scenario is not as nearly far-fetched as you might think…
In Barack Obama’s view, the people holding signs like the one pictured above suffer from a mental deficiency – a denial of the President’s own version of absolute reality.
He would have you believe they’re crazy.
Recently, Mr. Obama declared climate change as a far greater threat to America and the world than terrorism. It is a view widely held by other Big Government leftists, from Hillary Clinton to legion of academics grown rich off of government subsidized, global warming research grants.
An Oregon professor last year suggested “climate deniers” should be treated as people suffering from “mental illness that must be treated.” Thought-police indeed! The current head of the Obama EPA also stated that those who don’t believe in global warming weren’t “normal” people. This same “denier mental disorder” meme has taken hold throughout Europe as well.
So with that in mind, now take a look at this portion of President Obama’s new anti-gun ownership Executive Order:
“Current law prohibits individuals from buying a gun if, because of a mental health issue, they are either a danger to themselves or others or are unable to manage their own affairs. The Social Security Administration (SSA) has indicated that it will begin the rulemaking process to ensure that appropriate information in its records is reported to NICS.”
In simpler terms, what Mr. Obama is now implementing is a nation-wide database on people deemed mentally unsuitable to own a firearm. The new rules are so broad as to make almost anyone at anytime arguably disqualified from owning a gun. Those who don’t fully subscribe to the alleged dangers of global warming certainly qualify as posing a “danger to themselves and others” according to multiple previous statements on the subject by the President and other high-ranking officials within his own administration.
The below facts are to be ignored, the debate over, and those who don’t capitulate to the global warming agenda deemed mentally incompetent.
The Global Warming/Climate Change debate has far more in common with the Inquisition than it does actual science. It has devolved so far into profit-driven influence peddling and political misogyny that truth and consideration are constantly threatened with outright expulsion.
And it is that same corrupted process that Barack Obama has now made possible as a means to inhibit otherwise lawful gun ownership in America.

The Saudi Royal Family has been working overtime in recent years trying to ensure the United States does not become energy independent. Part of that attempt is to flood the world oil market in the hopes of crippling the emerging domestic oil production boom taking place inside the United States while funding the campaigns of American politicians willing to support that endeavor.
The other portion of this plan has been hundreds of millions of dollars by the Saudis to prop up the ongoing “climate change/global warming” machine that seeks to impose restrictions upon emerging economies, including energy production, thus keeping Saudi oil a viable alternative that will continue to net the House of Saud billions in profits each year.
Donald Trump just told them to shut up.
Trump has long been critical of the Saudi Royals and their significant influence upon American politics. He has called out their ongoing funding of terrorists, and most recently, their refusal to do anything to help the Syrian refugee crisis.
(A fact Barack Obama has ignored as well – instead pushing Americans to spend billions of dollars relocated those refugees into the United States despite obvious security concerns.)
Following Mr. Trump’s declaration that Muslim immigration into the United States should be temporarily halted until the federal government could improve its screening process to help ensure Islamic radicals were not gaining entry into the country, Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal, a billionaire member of the House of Saud, demanded Donald Trump end his campaign for President. It should be noted it was no small gesture by the Saudi prince – they truly feel themselves entitled to make such a demand, so great is their influence upon American politics.
Trump then responded in kind:
Hers is a career of impeccable, peer-reviewed note. She ranks among the brightest and most convincing of her climate science peers and yet, Professor Judith Curry has been cast out for daring to challenge the manufactured scientific consensus regarding human-made climate change. It has been, and continues to be a campaign to silence a scientist because she has the audacity to actually apply unbiased science to the question of climate change and in doing so, endangers the multi-TRILLION dollar global climate change industry that far-left politicians like Barack Obama and Al Gore have become integral parts of, an endeavor that made Al Gore many millions of dollars and Mr. Obama has every intention of doing the same for himself once he leaves the White House.
It is the single greatest scientific sham in the history of humankind and Judith Curry is putting the entirety of her academic career on the line as she works to expose the fraud.
“I’m doing what I do to stand up for science and to do the right thing.”
What makes the increasingly aggressive attacks against Professor Curry more interesting is the fact she is willing to concede human carbon-based emissions can contribute to a warming of the planet. She simply states, and does so with considerable scientific evidence, that the rate of warming is likely much-much slower than the climate alarmists would have the general public believe.
The reason for wanting a much more dire and urgent climate change sales pitch is likely quite simple – MONEY.
Al Gore created his own vast personal wealth over nearly twenty years ago by shouting how the ice caps would melt, the oceans would rise, and mega-storms would wipe out cities across the globe – none of which actually took place. The urgency of his sales pitch made for a good product. It was no different than the doom and gloom, the end is near religious tent shows of the early 19th Century where someone professing to speak the word of God bellowed to the fearful masses that time was running out only to then remind them to please leave as much as possible in the donation plate as it was passed around before moving on to the next community down the road where the dire warnings and request for money were repeated over and over again.
Professor Curry is simply stating none of us need to worry so much over what is a very gradually warming climate, but that kind of science is not conducive to mass hysteria and the money such hysteria can raise and if you are Barack Obama preparing to live as a very wealthy man funded in part by climate change fears, you do what you can to silence far more moderate (and actual science-based voices) like Professor Curry.
Take this comment from a recent interview the professor gave to the Spectator UK:
“…There’s no way I would have done this if I hadn’t been a tenured professor, fairly near the end of my career. If I were seeking a new job in the US academy, I’d be pretty much unemployable….there’s no way I could get a government research grant to do the research I want to do. Since then, I’ve stopped judging my career by these metrics. I’m doing what I do to stand up for science and to do the right thing.”
Those are the words of a highly regarded scientist who has spent much of their career studying the complex intricacies of the earth’s climate admitting to the enormous pressure that is applied to others within the scientific community to conform to the current climate change hysteria. If you are starting out your career, you will not have a career unless you conform. If you have the protection of tenure, your words will be ignored and funding for your research will cease of you deny the alarmist climate change model.
That isn’t science, that is manipulation of thought to feed a pre-determined template and it is exactly the kind of bullying intimidation politicians like Barack Obama so fully embrace in this era of divisive science, politics, and media.
Professor Curry likens the current scientific environment to the McCarthy-era where voices are silenced and careers ended, all in the name of what figures like Barack Obama call “science.”
Greed isn’t science, it is simply greed, Mr. President…

The sitting president is said to already have one foot happily out of the door of the White House as he and longtime cohort Valerie Jarrett continue preparing for what will be a global post-presidential machine that will make the hundred million dollar Clinton Initiative look like a 25-cent neighborhood lemonade stand. Foremost among this “Obama-World” operation is a $100 BILLION PER YEAR climate change operation that Barack Obama will use as the foundation to continue building an international brand that is to be a joint operation between himself, Valerie Jarrett, and a “New” United Nations…
In December of this year international representatives are meeting in Paris to begin talks of a $100 billion dollar per year mitigation plan to be paid by developed nations to undeveloped nations to help fight the manufactured crisis that is climate change.
While many within the U.S. government have indicated an unwillingness to go along with such an agreement, that same agreement is said to have strong support from both Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett. Jarrett has already hinted that the climate change issue will be “first up” come 2016. So too will the administration’s “unprecedented” work with United Nations’ officials in seeing the United States deferring much of its economic sovereignty to that of a newly created international climate change body – a NEW UNITED NATIONS.
Barack Obama is to be the public face for renewed efforts on not only climate change, but an international gun treaty, immigration reform, and resource allocation initiatives, among other plans.
For now though, it is the climate change issue that is front and center as that is the result of years of political and media manipulation that is to culminate in the $100 billion-plus per year agreement. Much of the work has already been done in 2013 in what was a largely unreported effort that resulted in what was titled, the Warsaw Mechanism – an international agreement intended to place compensatory amounts from losses and damages created by developed nations. The United States economy remains the number one target of this plan, and the Obama administration quietly worked behind the scenes in 2013 to see its passage complete.
ABOVE: Todd Stern was the Obama administration’s special envoy to the international climate talks in 2013 that resulted in the Warsaw Mechanism. Stern was integral to guiding those talks into what was described by the far-Left, George Soros-funded Center for American Progress with the following headline:
“Warsaw Climate Talks End with Foundation for a Global Agreement”
The initial negotiations for the $100 billion per year climate change compensation fund took place in 2009 – shortly after Barack Obama took office. Now that same $100 billion per year climate change compensation fund is being prepared to launch by 2020, just a few short years after Barack Obama leaves the White House, and fund supporters (with strong ties to the Obama administration) are already hinting that the $100 billion per year won’t be enough and should be substantially increased.
Most frightening is Barack Obama and Valerie Jarrett’s push to make said agreement legally binding upon the American government, something the administration is working upon very hard at this moment to see finalized before Barack Obama’s time as president is concluded.
Just last month, the Obama White House unveiled what media-friendly organizations described as a, “major climate change proposal.” The focus of this proposal was to greatly enhance the authoritative powers of the EPA. The EPA will then be joined with the now pending international climate change agreement, thus providing the administration the “legal binder” to make the president’s national climate change plan an international one that he will then act as primary supervisor of.
President Obama’s “major climate change proposal” was then followed up by a much-publicized trip to Alaska meant to reinforce his efforts to further his anti-climate change agenda.
The culmination of that agenda is the international agreement for a $100 billion-plus per year climate change compensation fund of which one Barack Hussein Obama will act as the international supervisor of.
GAME. SET. MATCH.
UPDATE: Following this D.C. Whispers report, Drudge including the following front-page headline today:
“After Iran deal, Obama to pivot to climate change”
Whispers are now circulating that the Iran nuclear agreement deal, which was a treaty treated as an executive order so it could bypass the constitutional two-thirds approval of the Senate, is to be the precedent soon to be utilized for a comprehensive and international climate change agreement that will include the $100 billion-plus per year compensatory fund. Some might recall the Obama administration took the deal to U.N. officials FIRST before approaching Congress and once the United Nations leadership gave its approval, it appeared to be a fait accompli with complaints from members of Congress little more than a distractionary sideshow to give the appearance of actual opposition.
The Iran nuke deal was in fact the first real test run of what is to become a New United Nations.
With the time ticking on the final years of his presidency, Barack Obama is said to be moving aggressively toward sweeping Executive Authority measures enacted out of a sincere belief by the president that he was chosen to save the planet from the ravages of human progress.
This week he flies to Alaska to renew his quest to declare climate change the greatest threat to humankind and position himself as the only American president to date to address the issue with the seriousness Barack Obama believes it deserves.
A trusted D.C. Whispers source had this to say on the subject of Mr. Obama’s new-found zeal to attack carbon fuels:
“He is more convinced than ever that he is the one to make it happen regarding new climate change laws. He doesn’t want to hear anything about it being politically tough or other versions of science that disagree with what he’s doing. It’s all-in for the president and he intends to diminish our carbon-based economy as much as possible before he leaves office. He’s daring anyone to challenge him on this. This is another legacy moment, like the Iran deal, Cuba, etc. He is determined to see himself go down as one of the greatest presidents in U.S. history and nothing or no-one is going to prevent that from happening. It’s also a big part of his post-White House plans. He wants to position himself as the international leader on the subject, something that will go beyond the laws of the United States. He favors the concept of a global authority – big time.”
This week President Obama travels to Alaska to announce his intent to further expand efforts by the Environmental Protection Agency to reduce America’s carbon emissions. The president will stage a number of “victim forums” showcasing Alaskans negatively impacted by climate change. These events will be the backdrop for the president’s demand for an international climate change treaty. The Alaskan trip bookends the president’s most recent remarks commemorating the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina in which he again referenced climate change. (Despite the actual science indicating climate change, be it real or imagined, had nothing to do with the hurricane or the local and state government incompetence that was actually to blame for much of the resulting loss of life.)
Readers would do well to recall it was Barack Obama who, during his 20o8 election night speech said HIS victory would be remembered for the following:
“…this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.”
It appears the president is intent on seeing that astonishing claim become reality – at least in his own mind.
While the nation is distracted by the ongoing South Carolina shooting tragedy and the resulting Confederate flag debate, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, granted President Obama a huge victory toward the president’s goal of fast-track trade authority. The entirety of the sweeping Obamatrade legislation is likely to be passed later this week as it now only needs a 51-vote majority to pass.
As bad as the above sounds, DC Whispers now suggest the process has been hiding something potentially much-much worse to the future of the American economy – a globally binding climate change agreement that will be promoted in the coming months that will now only face the same 51-vote majority needed for passage.
“They kept this under wraps and now we are realizing the extent of the deception. Obamatrade is much more than just the more superficial exterior of the Trans-Pacific Partnership. It’s real goal, at least a very significant part of it, is the climate change agenda. If you start to follow the money you see the real players behind the TPP – and a lot of it comes from the Middle East. We’ve had the Saudis lobbying for TPP, Qatar, the UAE, they all have their hands in this along with significant interest from Mexico so clearly this is more than just an agreement between the United States and nations from the Asian-Pacific region.
The Republican leadership keep saying the new law will lessen the president’s treaty negotiations power because it requires more Congressional input at the outset. That’s not true. Congress can advise, but it can’t force the president to do anything. What it will potentially change far more easily than ever before, and with only a simple majority now needed, is the president’s ability to re-write U.S. law. If a future treaty is a violation of existing American law, the Obamatrade legislation allows that law to be changed with only a simple majority vote.
Look up a map of the non-binding nations of the Kyoto Treaty. A couple things should jump out. First, the U.S. representatives agreed to the treaty but it was never ratified. The administration is preparing to push for full approval. Second, you should see the countries that are exempt from the treaty that includes the Middle East and all of the cooperating nations involved in the Obama administration’s proposed Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty.
That is no coincidence. They were playing some serious long ball on this one and will have it wrapped up by the end of the week and it was the Republican leadership who allowed it to happen because they were only seeing the short term gains of keeping their Chamber of Commerce reps happy.
When it comes to Obamatrade, the TPP is only the first layer. Soon the climate change push will follow. If it doesn’t get quite done on Obama’s watch, Hillary’s people will promise to finish it up themselves.
As if 2016 wasn’t already important enough.”
UPDATE: Here is the Kyoto Treaty map as referenced above. The blue colored nations are those that are not bound by the agreement. Interestingly, China later ratified the treaty in 2012 but has yet to actually implement the treaty obligations, leading most to believe it was a gesture intended to put yet more pressure on the United States to ratify the Kyoto Treaty and then be forced, unlike China, to actually follow the protocols which will in turn cripple its economy more than it already is.
The official word from the Obama White House is that the meeting today between President Barack Obama and United Arab Emirates Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan to discuss such issues as ISIS, Iran, and Yemen, but it is rumored the primary purpose of the meeting is to further solidify Barack Obama’s current and future role in expanding the climate change agenda – and agenda that directly benefits the great oil powers of the Middle East.
The photo to the left was taken recently showing Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan giving a “lifetime achievement” award (and the $4 million that accompanies the award) to Al Gore for Mr. Gore’s work “in raising climate change awareness across the globe.” The United Arab Emirates prince has an estimated personal net worth of between 15 and 20 billion dollars, most of which he derives from his nation’s $500 billion dollar oil reserves fund. Over the last decade, Al Nahyan has assumed primary control of the Middle East’s climate change propaganda machine, funneling hundreds of millions of dollars to organizations (and politicians) to greatly increase the agenda’s international influence which will in turn increase the value of oil reserves such as the ones that have made Al Nahyan such an incredibly wealthy man.
And now today the Obama/Jarrett White House will be kissing the proverbial ring of the Middle East climate change despot in the hopes of convincing the Crown Prince that they both have much to offer to his climate change scheme in the coming years – for a price of course. And if those future earnings working for Middle East oil money comes at the expense of the United States’ own domestic energy production, all the better say Jarrett and Obama.
Al Nahyan’s influence extends far beyond the current occupants of the White House though, indicating his climate change agenda is a machine of truly global implications, though he is no doubt working to influence the upcoming 2016 U.S. election. He is particularly close to Turkey’s Prime Minister (and Islamic radical) Recep Tayyip Erdogan, as well as meeting regularly with Germany’s Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister David Cameron, other billionaire’s like Bill Gates (who donates generously to the Crown Prince’s climate change agenda) and of course various Obama administration officials, including the president himself.
It should also be noted that the only notable world leader who has indicated a willingness to push back against the UAE’s globalist demands is Russia’s Vladimir Putin. Putin, while investing with the Crown Prince’s UAE oil reserves fund,has indicated concerns over the UAE’s particular brand of influence throughout the Middle East and its repeated attempts to further control the world oil markets in conjunction with its House of Saud cousins. (Below you can note in two photos how differently the body language is between Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin when each man meets with the Crown Prince.)
Lastly, we should not forget the WikiLeaks documents in 2010 that outlined the UAE’s ongoing funding of such terrorist related groups as al-Qa’ida, the Taliban and Hamas, making Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan no more than a billionaire sponsor of global terrorism with a smile…
