Gallup Poll: Literally No One Says Climate Change is America’s Greatest Problem

Recently, during July 2018, Gallup conducted a telephone survey of a random sample of 1,033—adults, ages 18+, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.

Each respondent was asked “What do you think is the most important problem facing this country today?”

The thousand-plus Americans gave some 47 different answers.

Not one gave climate change or manmade global warming as the most important problem facing the country.

As documented many times, catastrophic-manmade-climate-change-by-CO2 is a political issue only for wealthy government (and government-trusting) elites. It is not an issue of interest for the vast majority of Americans.

Dolly Parton promotes literacy without government

Music legend Dolly Parton was one of 12 kids who grew up in rural Tennessee in a one-room shack. As a child she slept with 3 or 4 sisters in the same bed.

Her own father was illiterate.

Today Dolly is the wealthiest resident of her county, and the largest employer in the county.

She spends hundreds of thousands annually to promote government-free education and literacy.

Each month, Dolly’s program mails a free, high quality, age appropriate book directly to the homes of children regardless of income.

Greenwald: NBC and MSNBC are essentially arms of the CIA and U.S. Military

It is well documented that most “mainstream” news is under the pay and support of the government.

Now intrepid journalist Glenn Greenwald documents that MSNBC and NBC are knowingly and unapologetically publishing fake news supported by the CIA.

Even when the public loudly alerts NBC and MSNBC executives about their false reporting, the networks refuse to correct the fake news.

“That’s because NBC News and MSNBC have essentially merged with the CIA and intelligence community and thus, use their tactics,” according to Greenwald.

“The network is filled with former generals and CIA officials who are part of the community that pioneered these smear tactics of accusing journalists and critics they dislike of being traitors, spies, and Kremlin loyalists.” See here.

Turkish government purges thousands of government workers deemed suspicious

The people of Turkey may get a brief period of relief from government workers.

Turkish president Erdogan has purged some 130,000 government workers over the past several years, claiming they were associated with ‘terrorist’ movements. Thousands more have been arrested and imprisoned.

In almost every instance, Erdogan security forces claim the employees are associated with exiled cleric Fetullah Gulen. Gulen now lives in the U.S. and has invested heavily in American private charter schools.

This past week, after Erdogan claims to have been reelected to another 5-year term, Turkish authorities dismissed more than 18,000 state employees for alleged ties to ‘terror.’

An emergency decree published in Turkey’s Official Gazette listed the names, saying they had been “removed from public duty” over their alleged links to organizations that “act against national security.”

Thousands of millionaires flee socialist Maryland and California

When you tax something you get less of it.

In 2008 Maryland’s government passed a millionaire tax, taking more than 6 percent of everything earned by the state’s millionaires (in addition to all other taxes they already pay). One-third of all millionaires in the state either moved away or quit earning so much money the following year. See here.
Now thousands of millionaires are fleeing the hostile state of California, which enacted America’s highest state income tax rates a couple years ago.

According to new research released by Charles Varner, associate director of the Stanford Center on Poverty and Inequality, California lost an estimated 138 high-income individuals following passage of the Proposition 30 income tax increase championed by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) and approved by Golden State voters in 2012.

28-year-old bartender defeats 4th ranking Democrat in Congress despite being outspent by 18 to 1

Every claim made by campaign finance reformers is untrue. In the recent New York Democratic primaries, a 28-year-old bartender named Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated the 4th-ranked Democrat in the U.S. House, Joe Crowley.

Crowley outspent Ocasia-Cortez by a margin of at least 18 to 1.

Crowley was widely thought to be in line to be the next Democratic speaker of the House.

British financial sector thrives after Brexit

Government trusters everywhere denounced the vote by Brits to leave the European Union two years ago.

Almost every pro-government economist, financial columnist and figurehead predicted financial calamity would fall upon the people of Britain for daring to be independent.

But a review by Max Colchester and Patricia Kowsmann in the Wall Street Journal finds that Britain remains the financial crown of all Europe.

“Brexit was meant to be a crippling blow to London’s position as the financial capital of Europe.” But two years later, London “remains mostly undiminished, and no single other European city is close to claiming its crown.”

“The amount of international lending channeled through U.K.-based banks INCREASED between the [Brexit] vote and the end of 2017.” See here.

Socialist California has gone from the 5th largest economy in the world to the 7th

Forget the overuse of the terms “liberal” and “democratic.”

A more accurate description is pro-government. California’s “leaders” have driven its policies in an extreme pro-government direction for 30 years.

One-third of the nation’s welfare recipients are in California, which has only one-eighth of U.S. population.

See here. “What Happens When Democrats Run Your State?”

California has the highest poverty rate in the nation.

Its massive government consumes 1/3 more of state GDP than in that of Texas.

Similar to Venezuela, California has lost much of its business sector in recent years. 9,000 businesses have left the state in the past 7 years.
