Fox and Friends: Climate Change Is The Left’s ‘Religion’ – It’s How They ‘Control Your Life’



Fox and Friends” took a swing at the very real crisis of man-made climate change Tuesday morning, with guest co-host Pete Hegseth saying it’s not a “real threat,” like ISIS.

Co-host Ainsley Earhardt mocked Senator Bernie Sanders for saying climate change is a greater threat to U.S. national security than ISIS (the DoD has made similar observations). Hegseth, who once was on President Donald Trump’s short list to head the Department of Veterans Affairs, launched into a rant.

“The Left says that all the time. This is what they believe – it is their religion,” Hegseth told viewers. They want to fight the weather, the rest of us want to deal with real threats that want to take away our freedom.”

Hegseth then credited President Trump with “destroying ISIS,” while acknowledging there are still “remnants” that need to be addressed. “That’s taking on a real threat directly.”

“Whether it’s hot or cold, the enemy is here, as far as liberals are concerned. It’s all about control for them. That’s why climate change is the perfect enemy. They get to control your life to deal with it, no matter what’s happening,” said Hegseth, who once said “germs are not a real thing,” while bragging he has not washed his hands in ten years.

He then went on to complain that college students aren’t “learning about radical Islam, they’re learning about environmentalism, and radical environmentalism, and they’re being told its the most important thing.”

The highly-respected website Just Security, which is based at the Reiss Center on Law and Security at New York University School of Law, last year reported that climate change “is a grave threat to national security. Indeed, it may be the threat.” They added it also “exacerbates and accelerates already existing threats.”

Trump Declares War on Fed Head – Then Claims ‘Selfish’ Democrats Can ‘Will’ a Bad Economy Into Existence



President Donald Trump just declared war on the man he personally picked to head the Federal Reserve. The President is furious that one in three economists are predicting recession by the end of the year, and many believe the U.S. will plunge into a recession within the next 6 to 12 months.

At the top of the list of causes for the Trump recession is the president’s trade war with China, which he said a year ago was easy to win.

Trade wars are not easy to win, and Trump’s lack of understanding of the international economy is harming Americans and people worldwide.

So, as he has been doing for months, late Monday morning the President blasted Jerome Powell, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve – which is supposed to be a wholly independent agency. Some economists believe the Fed’s policies have helped slow economic growth, but it is Trump who is to blame for the possible impending recession.

But this time Trump went nuclear, declaring war on the Federal Reserve Chairman, in a tweet.

The President blasted what he called Powell’s “horrendous lack of vision,” while claiming Democrats are trying to (as if it were even possible) “will” the economy into recession.

Trump also called for the Fed to massively cut interest rates, which would steal a critical tool the Fed uses when facing dire economic crises.

One Washington Post Economics Correspondent noted the same:

Another Washington Post reporter notes Trump is really pushing the envelope:

While this ABC News reporter reminded Trump of his praise of Powell when he nominated him:

In fact, here’s Trump on Nov. 2, 2017, introducing and praising Powell as his nominee, “based on his record”:

Meanwhile, a senior market analyst noticed the illogical juxtapositions in Trump’s tweet:

And this CNBC reporter notes Democrats are not in a position to “will” a bad economy:

Anti-LGBT NRA Supporting Tomi Lahren Delivers Insane New Claim: Gun Rights Are Gay Rights



Tomi Lahren is aligning herself very closely with the NRA in the wake of two mass shootings that stole the lives of 31 people in El Paso and Dayton over the weekend. The anti-LGBT hyper-partisan Fox Nation host who has been called “white power Barbie” told “Fox and Friends” viewers Wednesday morning that gun rights are gay rights, after airing a clip from her interview with the NRA’s social media manager.

“You know, when I interviewed Billy McLaughlin it was actually during Pride month. He wrote an excellent article in The Washington Post talking about how gun rights are also LGBT rights and he also happens to be gay and the social media director of the NRA in his 20’s, so the NRA really does represent everybody,” Lahren claimed, falsely, while also plugging her Fox Nation show.

“Gun rights really are human rights and he attests that perfectly,” she concluded. Her remarks were toward the end of her segment in this Fox News video:

Earlier in the segment Lahren attacked liberals for what she called “liberal privilege,” which she literally defined as liberals having the belief they can criticize anyone they want, then pivoting to the false claim that “gun rights are human rights.”

Lahren is no friend to the LGBTQ community.

Also during Pride month Lahren proudly endorsed the upcoming straight pride parade, telling viewers, “I’m not afraid to say it. I’m straight and proud. There, deal with it!”

She lamented, “Sadly, at least in Boston, straight people aren’t allowed to parade their heterosexuality for all to see,” while claiming it is “open-season on straight white men in this country.”

The LGBT community is not the only minority Lahren has attacked. She has compared Black Lives Matter to the KKK.

‘Not Mentally Fit’: Trump Blasted for Telling First Responders He Was ‘Down There With You’ at Ground Zero



President Donald Trump Monday morning signed a bill into law ensuring first responders to the 9/11 attacks and their families will have greatly-needed – and, thanks to GOP lawmakers who delayed the process – long awaited financial support. But his remarks to 9/11 first responders invited to witness the signing of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund in the White House’s Rose Garden has some outraged.

“I was down there [at Ground Zero] also, but I’m not considering myself a first responder, but I was down there. I spent a lot of time down there with you,” Trump claimed. His claim is false.

It’s not the first time Trump has told this lie.

“Everyone who helped clear the rubble — and I was there, and I watched, and I helped a little bit — but I want to tell you: Those people were amazing,” he said, as Mediaite reminded Monday. “Clearing the rubble. Trying to find additional lives. You didn’t know what was going to come down on all of us — and they handled it.”

Trump, as many on social media were quick to point out, called in to New Jersey radio station WWOR on the afternoon of the 9/11 terror attacks to claim – falsely – that he now owned the tallest building in downtown Manhattan. It was a lie.

Some responses to Trump’s lies:
