Cortez and her Crazy Green Plan:

This morning, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released an overview of her “Green New Deal” which threatens “a massive transformation of our society.” Below are the details of the proposal. Rebuild every single building in the U.S. “Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.” Will end all traditional forms of energy in the next ten years. The Green New Deal is “a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.” Plans to ban nuclear energy within 10 years if possible. “It’s unclear if we will be able to decommission every nuclear plant within 10 years, but the plan is to transition off of nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible.” Build trains across oceans and end all air travel! “Build out highspeed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary”. Don’t invest in new technology of Carbon Capture and Storage, just plant trees instead! “We believe the right way to capture carbon is to plant trees and restore our natural ecosystems. CCUS technology to date has not proven effective.” Mandates all new jobs be unionized. “Ensure that all GND jobs are union jobs that pay prevailing wages and hire local.” May include a carbon tax. “We’re not ruling a carbon tax out, but a carbon tax would be a tiny part of a Green New Deal.” May include cap and trade. “…Cap and trade may be a tiny part of the larger Green New Deal plan.” How much will it cost? No estimate of the total cost of implementing the Green New deal is offered by Ocasio-Cortez.


More revealing of Cortez: “Trump begins speech and welcomes Melania. Most stand and applaud. One member encourages Ocasio-Cortez to do so; she appears to reply, ‘What? Why?’” Smith tweeted. Fox National security strategist and radio host Sebastian Gorka noted Ocasio-Cortez’s refusal to applaud even for the most humanitarian of issues. “NOTE THIS WELL: This woman even refused to applaud the @ICEgov agent who saved more than 300 girls and woman from coyote smugglers,” Gorka pointed out. “AOC is a Marxist who couldn’t care less about other women.” Political commentator Ryan Fournier tweeted, “AOC is consistently looking to see if other Democrats are clapping to see if she should too. Someone send help.” GOP National Spokesperson Kayleigh McEnany pointed out:

“WATCH: Democrats and @AOC can’t seem to figure out whether to stand (or even clap) for sex and human traffickers being put behind bars! Really!?”

Congresswoman and pal of Cortez threatens teen and says he should learn her name:

.@AOC has been talking this entire speech and the woman next to her keeps trying to look the other way 😂😂. — CJ Pearson (@thecjpearson) February 6, 2019

The 65-year-old congresswoman responded to the teenager’s seemingly harmless tweet, despite not being tagged in it, saying that her and Ocasio-Cortez “are the future of the country.” She added, “and you’re right to be afrad of us. But you should learn my name.”

Hi @TheCJPearson, I'm not "the woman sitting next to her". @AOC and I — and millions like us — are the future of this country. And you're right to be afraid of us. But you should learn my name. — Nydia M Velázquez (@ReElectNydia) February 6, 2019 Pearson responded by tweeting “I’m sorry if I bruised your ego but genuinely, I really don’t know you are. Do less tweeting and more work, Congresswoman. Maybe, then, more Americans will know your name. Be blessed.”

Democrats do not accept Trump’s SOTU olive branch: House intelligence chair announces sweeping investigation into Trump's finances and Russia CNN Fake News ^ | 6 February 2019 | Jeremy Herb and Manu Raju

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff announced Wednesday a broad investigation his committee would undertake "beyond Russia" into whether President Donald Trump's financial interests are driving his actions. 

Schiff said the investigation would "allow us to investigate any credible allegation that financial interests or other interests are driving decision-making of the President or anyone in the administration." "That pertains to any credible allegations of leverage by the Russians or the Saudis or anyone else," Schiff told reporters after the House Intelligence Committee's first meeting in the new Congress. In a statement, Schiff said the investigation would include a continued probe into Russia's actions during the 2016 election and contacts between the Russia and Trump's team, as well as an examination of "whether any foreign actor has sought to compromise or holds leverage, financial or otherwise, over Donald Trump, his family, his business, or his associates." 

Schiff said the investigation, which could involve additional congressional committees, would also look at whether Trump or his associates have "sought to influence US government policy in service of foreign interests" and any potential obstruction into the various investigations. 

Schiff's announcement is the most detailed look yet into how congressional Democrats will investigate Trump's finances and possible ties to foreign entities, and how Democrats are sure to continue probing Trump and his team well after special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation had concluded.

Trump Tweets:

So now Congressman Adam Schiff announces, after having found zero Russian Collusion, that he is going to be looking at every aspect of my life, both financial and personal, even though there is no reason to be doing so. Never happened before! Unlimited Presidential Harassment........The Dems and their committees are going “nuts.” The Republicans never did this to President Obama, there would be no time left to run government. I hear other committee heads will do the same thing. Even stealing people who work at White House! A continuation of Witch Hunt!

PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT! It should never be allowed to happen again!

""Utterly shocked and terrified, I tried to move my head away, but could not because his hand was holding down my neck and he was much stronger than me. As I cried and gagged, Mr. Fairfax forced me to perform oral sex on him."" — Breaking911 (@Breaking911) February 6, 2019

New Details: Spygate Deepens

Report: Bank Flagged ‘Suspicious’ Payments To Lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin Who Worked With Fusion GPS And Attended Trump Tower Meeting - The Daily Caller

"Wells Fargo in 2017 flagged half a million dollars in wire transfers and bank deposits to the account of Rinat Akhmetshin, a Russian-born lobbyist who has worked closely with opposition research firm Fusion GPS and also attended the infamous Trump Tower meeting."

Russian Lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin Linked to Hillary Clinton at Infamous Trump Tower Meeting -- Received Half-a-Million Dollars in Suspicious Payments Before and After Meeting

"And now this… According to Senate testimony Russian lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin told the Senate Judiciary Committee he knew Hillary Clinton and had contacts with her associates. Russian lobbyist Rinat Akhmetshin received half-a-million dollars in suspicious payments before and after the Trump Tower meetings." Epstein was working for Mueller: Documents released by the FBI pertaining to Clinton-connected pedophile Jeffrey Epstein show that the known child predator had a professional relationship with then-FBI Director Robert S. Mueller.  Today’s release shows that Epstein clearly cut a deal with Mueller’s FBI to avoid prosecution, though it is unclear from the heavily-redacted documents what crime he was charged with.

"Three years after Apple refused to give the federal government access to the devices used by the San Bernadino terrorists who killed and injured dozens in a mass shooting event, the company has given the office of the Special Counsel complete access to Trump advisor Roger Stone’s iCloud account, reports Apple Insider."

Yes, Democrats DID start the Ku Klux Klan (and it's still the party of racism)And yet the Democrats had a former KKK member in the US Senate until he died in 2010. In fact, Robert Byrd wasn’t just in the KKK, he recruited 150 friends to start a chapter!Robert Byrd used the N-word on live television in 2001. And then was re-elected as the Senator from West Virginia in 2006.

Self-compassion is healthy

It was Buddha who said “your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts". Now science appears to have proved him right, after new researched showed that negative thoughts can be physiologically harmful, while positive thinking calms the heart rate and even boosts the immune system. The findings suggest that taking time to think positive thoughts about oneself can make a significant health difference."Our study is helping us understand the mechanism of how being kind to yourself when things go wrong could be beneficial in psychological treatments. "By switching off our threat response, we boost our immune systems and give ourselves the best chance of healing.

"We hope future research can use our method to investigate this in people with mental health problems such as recurrent depression."

The recordings that encouraged self-compassion were a "compassionate body scan" in which people were guided to attend to bodily sensations with an attitude of interest and calmness; and a "self-focused loving kindness exercise" in which they directed kindness and soothing thoughts to a loved one and themselves.

The three other groups listened to recordings designed to induce a critical inner voice, put them into a "positive, but competitive and self-enhancing mode", or an emotionally neutral shopping scenario.

While people in both the self-compassion and positive-but-competitive groups reported greater self-compassion and decreased self-criticism, only the self-compassion groups showed the positive bodily response.
