What Will Become Of The Energy Star Scam Under President Trump?

ENERGY STAR is arguably the most corrupt federal program in US history, a true National Disgrace which has inflicted more damage on America’s economy, scientific, educational and legal systems than an entire army of Bernie Madoff’s and John Beale’s.

Built entirely on myth, fraudulent scientific research and bogus technical reports promoted by the media, this secretive program has been mired in scandal and controversy since day one.

As Trump term approaches, anxiety heightens for many transgender Americans

Anxiety is high among many transgender Americans after the sweeping Republican election victory. They fear stronger resistance to their push for civil-rights protections, including broader access to public restrooms, and wonder if their newly won right to serve openly in the military is in jeopardy.

Transgender people “are concerned for their safety, survival and legal rights in the coming years,” said Chase Strangio, an attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union who often works on transgender issues.


Outgoing President Obama Shuts Down Border Aerial Surveillance Program

DHS officials quietly shutdown the military aerial support program known as Operation Phalanx, reported. The program was created by President Obama in 2010 to provide National Guard resources to monitor drug smuggling operations and illegal border crossings by immigrants and human smugglers.


Minnesota officials kidnap boy, begin his gender transition without parental consent

“Last year, without my knowledge or consent, without any court hearings or legal process, without any involvement on my part whatsoever, a legal aid group that gives free services to low-income people created a notice of emancipation for my 15-year-old son,” Anmarie Calgaro outlined at a press conference on Wednesday. “Suddenly, my son, without any notice to me, was no longer under my supervision.”

“It was then brought to my knowledge that my son had begun receiving hormone replacement treatments from Park Nicollet health services to transition from male to female with medical assistance paying for this,” she said. “I was not consulted or informed about this in any way. I had no way to give or receive any information about my son.”


Liberals present plan to phase out coal-powered electricity by 2030

In announcing the plan today, federal Environment Minister Catherine McKenna said about 80 per cent of Canada’s electricity currently comes from clean sources such as hydroelectric power, nuclear, wind and solar. The goal is to make 90 per cent of electric power generation free of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

“This will help build a more sustainable future, and it is also a great economic opportunity,” she said during a news conference in Ottawa.

The plan accelerates the current timetable for the four provinces that still burn coal for electricity — Alberta, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick — to either capture carbon emissions, adopt technology or shut down the plants.

McKenna said the plan will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by five megatonnes a year, the equivalent of getting 1.3 million cars off the road, but she provided few details on how the accelerated phase-out will be achieved.


Generation Trudeau: Send troops on peacekeeping missions anywhere! (Even fictional countries)

Watch as I ask members of Generation Trudeau on the Ryerson University campus how they feel about Canada getting involved in these fictional countries.

It seems it doesn’t matter what the issue is or even if the country is real, as long as Canada’s role is one of peacekeeper of the kind Justin favours, the kids are alright with it.


Secessionists formally launch quest for California’s independence

Supporters of a plan for California to secede from the union took their first formal step Monday morning, submitting a proposed ballot measure to the state attorney general’s office in the hopes of a statewide vote as soon as 2018.

Columbia to become a ‘sanctuary’ campus for illegal immigrants, fund their educations

Columbia University has vowed to not cooperate with immigration authorities and to expand financial aid for illegal immigrants, in a bid to frustrate President-elect Donald Trump’s potential immigration policy.

The Columbia Daily Spectator reports that Provost John Coatsworth told the community in a Monday email that the university would become a “sanctuary” campus, preventing immigration authorities “from entering campus without a warrant” and financially helping students “who lose the ability to work”.


Skeptical scientists crash UN climate summit, praise Trump for ‘bringing science back again’

A team of international scientists crashed the UN climate summit in Marrakech and welcomed the election of Donald Trump as a way to bring positive reforms to climate science. The three scientists from Paraguay, Norway and Sweden, were granted a presentation by the UN to present the skeptical climate change view and they praised Trump for rejecting the UN “global warming” claims. The three scientists were also hopeful that Trump’s presidency will help end the politicized UN climate agenda.

Agro-Biologist Dr. Albrecht Glatzle of Paraguay was especially encouraged by the election of the climate skeptic Trump to the presidency.

“I have very much hope that his election will be the initialization of a turnaround in science relating to climate change,” Glatzle, the Director científico de INTTAS in Paraguay, told Climate Depot at the UN summit.
