The Guardian Newspaper announces new “style guide”: reporters must write hysterically about the climate

On May 17, The Guardian announced a new “style guide” for its reporters writing on climate-related issues. The Guardian claims it “updated its style guide to introduce terms that more accurately describe the environmental crises facing the world. Instead of “climate change” the preferred terms are “climate emergency, crisis or breakdown” and “global heating” is favoured over “global warming”, although the original terms are not banned.”

Even as the earth’s climate appears to be more pleasant than ever, with fewer hurricanes, fewer deaths from disasters, and record yields of major food crops, governments and government trusters are amping up their rhetoric about theory of apocalyptic-man-made-global-warming-by-CO2. Critical analysis or skepticism are increasingly shunned in government-supporting newspapers.

The LA Times has banned all letters to the editor which question the government theory. The Portland, Oregon School district has banned all school materials which question the theory.

Illinois legislators introduce bill to charge electric car owners $1,000 annually

Socialist Illinois imposes some of the highest taxes in the country (and the world), but can’t pay its obligations.

Illinois government employees live like royals among peasants. More than 30,000 State teachers make six figures or more annually–for just nine months work. Presently the State University system spends more on RETIRED employee pensions than on the entire current University system.

Tens of thousands of Illinois subjects have recently fled the Land of Lincoln.

Now, desperate for more funds, the Illinois legislature is considering charging owners of electric cars (who tend to be both disproportionately wealthy and disproportionately trustful of intrusive expansive government) a $1,000 annual registration fee. See here.

Half of Americans are one paycheck from financial disaster

Government policies such as progressive income taxation, central banking and Social Security aggressively punish savers.

And year after year, Americans reluctantly submit by saving nothing and investing very little. Now a new Marketwatch report shows that 50 percent or more of Americans are just one paycheck away from serious financial disaster.

Roughly two-thirds of households earning less than $30,000 annually would be unable to cover basic living expenses after missing more than one paycheck.

The Federal Reserve system makes saving even a single penny an act of utter foolishness. (Interest rates are generally below 5 percent for most savings accounts.)

Consequently roughly 50% of consumers either have nothing set aside to cover an emergency or less than $500 put away. And research from the Federal Reserve has indicated that roughly 4 in 10 Americans couldn’t afford a $400 emergency.

Government workers are now America’s richest class

Government employees are now America’s richest class. On average, they make more money than self-employed business owners or private-sector workers.

New data shows what everyone has long suspected: Government “workers” have the highest median ‘earnings’ among all full-time, year-round American workers.”

“According to the Census Bureau’s Personal Income Table 07 (PINC-07), the competition isn’t close. When it comes to making money in the modern United States of America, government workers win.”

“Among Americans who actually earn income by working, they are the upper class.”

See here.

As the reach of America’s intrusive, expansive government has grown, America is becoming a two-tiered, almost-feudal class system. Government ‘workers’ get prestige, first-class seating on some airlines and are even able to bump other Americans to economy class upon request.

Government employees, on average, make 14.2 percent more than private-sector workers and 6.1 percent more than the self-employed.

And the highest-earning class of workers–by far–are FEDERAL workers who pull down an average of $66,028.

(And this figure does not factor for benefits such as Cadillac pension, medical, and insurance perks; senior federal employees are given EIGHT WEEKS (that’s 2 months!) of PAID vacation annually.)

Studies show some federal employees perform essentially no work whatsoever. One federal “climate expert” at the EPA who earned over $200,000 annually was recently exposed for performing “absolutely no work” for an 18-month period. Federal VA workers at a VA facility in Colorado performed no work for an entire year.

Shock poll: new “Brexit Party” is most popular in European Union

The European Union (EU) was built by a small minority of elites, deep-state billionaires, Bilderbergers and fanatical government trusters. Nowhere did any European voters vote to place themselves under the control of a pan-European government.

Elites and government trusters demean anyone who supports leaving the EU as an uninformed bigot.

Two years ago when Brits voted to leave the EU, their movement was viciously defamed as a movement of old, white, ignorant racists.

Now the brand-new “Brexit Party” founded by Nigel Farage (the Brit who launched the Brexit movement in Britain years ago), is THE TOP-POLLING PARTY IN THE EUROPEAN UNION!

Almost a thousand California prisoners overdosed on drugs in 2018

Many people and politicians seem to crave a prisonization of daily life. As western history develops, government authority has grown almost constantly.

Now people in most western countries need government permission to perform most well-paying jobs, to travel in any direction or way that matters, or to otherwise progress through their lives.

But a new report shows that almost a thousand California prison inmates overdosed on drugs last year alone.
Government control of medical care, health and drugs doesn’t seem to produce more actual safety.

Government drinking water poisons millions across all 50 states

“While a harsh national spotlight focuses on the drinking water crisis in Flint, Mich., a USA TODAY NETWORK investigation has identified almost 2,000 additional water systems spanning all 50 states where testing has shown excessive levels of lead contamination over the past four years.” See here.

Most Americans say they want less government and more freedom, but stop short of calling for an end to government-provided drinking water.

Such government water is extremely expensive, costing local taxpayers many billions of dollars annually.

Yet government-provided drinking water is often toxic. The recent USA Today story indicates that many municipal governments provide WORSE drinking water than the government drinking water in Flint, Michigan which attracted news headlines worldwide recently.

More efforts to blacklist news sources which question government as “unreliable”

Recent scholarship has found that the most prominent ‘fact-checking’ and ‘news-checking’ organizations tend to label news sources which are skeptical of governments as ‘fake news’ or ‘unreliable.’

Now the ‘journalism institute’ Poynter has blacklisted more than 29 popular Conservative Outlets as ‘UnNews’

Poynter, which has started the “International Fact-Checking Network,” shared the new report and dataset called “UnNews,” declaring at least 29 right-leaning news outlets and organizations to be “unreliable news websites.” Major online content providers (such as Twitter, Facebook, Google and YouTube) appear to rely on Poynter’s designations.

Examples of ‘unreliable’ news sources, according to Poynter, include Breitbart, CNSNews.com, Daily Signal, Daily Wire, Drudge Report, Free Beacon, Judicial Watch, LifeNews, LifeSiteNews, LifeZette, LiveAction News, the Media Research Center, PJ Media, Project Veritas, Red State, The Blaze, Twitchy, and the Washington Examiner.

Faith in Democracy and Government Crumbles Worldwide

Recent global events have shaken faith in governments–and political engagement itself. More than two years after the people of Britain bravely voted to leave the European Union–against the wishes of the entire world political class–British elites continue to stall the move toward Brexit. The Brexit vote was the biggest vote in British history, with thousands of Britons coming forward to vote who had never voted before or who had long given up on voting.

In the United States, voters have sent wave after wave of politicians into offices after those politicians promised to limit government. Yet almost nowhere, at any level, has any winning politician actually followed through and done anything to cut government power.

The Pew Research Center has recently surveyed people in 27 countries. Just 63% of the people polled said their country protects the rights of people to express their views. “Those views are strongest in Indonesia, the Netherlands, Sweden, the Philippines and Canada. In contrast, fewer than half of respondents in Brazil, Italy, Argentina, Spain and Hungary said free speech was protected in their country.”

Fifty-four percent of global respondents said that politicians are corrupt, including 89% in Greece, 82% in Russia, 75% in South Korea, 72% in both Nigeria and South Africa and 69% in the United States.

A median of 53% disagreed with the statement that their country’s court system treats everyone fairly. That disagreement was strongest in South Korea, Argentina, Spain, Greece and Italy.

Officials at Guantanamo Prepare to Detain Prisoners For Life Without Due Process

A COMPLETE COLLAPSE OF CONSTITUTIONAL LAW UNDER THE ‘GLOBAL WAR ON TERROR’

Just 20 years ago no one imagined that the U.S. government would begin incarcerating prisoners without charge, trial or due process for years at a time.

But now the U.S. government is drafting formal plans to house prisoners for life without indictment, charge, or trial.

“[After years of impassioned debates over the rights of the detainees and whether the prison could close, the Pentagon is now planning for terrorism suspects still held in the facility to grow old and die at Guantánamo Bay.”

Although socialists and government trusters generally depict life under total government as a utopia, many of the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay show signs of physical deterioration.

“[T]he Palestinian known as Abu Zubaydah, who was confined to a box the size of a coffin while held at a secret C.I.A. site and waterboarded 83 times to break him . . . [is] already living with what [his] lawyers say are the physical and psychological aftereffects of torture, making [his] health especially precarious. . . .”

“Unless America’s policy changes, at some point we’ll be doing some sort of end of life care here,” the commander of the detention center, Rear Adm. John C. Ring, said during a discussion with reporters that highlighted the kinds of questions the prison is asking Pentagon policymakers to decide.

Many of the prisoners at the top secret prison are reportedly prediabetic. Others “now suffer typical middle-age conditions: high blood pressure and cholesterol, joint pain, diabetes and, lately, sleep apnea.”

But the military is grappling with an array of questions about how much medical care the prisoners should receive, how it should be delivered and how much Congress will provide to pay for it.

“We are starting to see the use of canes and walkers and braces and so forth.”

One prisoner is due for a knee replacement, reportedly because of his first year of C.I.A. captivity, when he was always shackled at the ankles. Another inmate reportedly suffers from chronic rectal pain from being sodomized in the C.I.A. prisons.

Nine (9) inmates have died in the facility since 2006. There are now forty (40) left.
