Swedes Vote Climate Policy Biggest Waste of Tax Payer Money in 2019

The Swedish public has voted that climate change spending has been the biggest waste of taxpayer money in 2019, according to a poll by the Swedish Taxpayers’ Association.
The Taxpayers’ Association released the results of their annual wasteful spending poll earlier this week, declaring that climate policy had been the biggest waste of money, largely due to the fact that despite the spending, emissions in Sweden had actually slightly increased.
In 2014, the Swedish national government spent 5.2 billion Swedish krona (£419 million/$547 million), a number that has more than doubled to 12.6 billion krona (£1 billion/$1.3 billion) for the planned 2020 budget.
“The government has more than doubled the appropriations for climate policy, but despite this, emissions no longer decrease. In 2018, emissions even increased. That is why climate policy has been voted the worst waste of the year,” Johan Gustafsson, Waste Ombudsman at the Taxpayers’ Association, said.

Sweden Looks to Ban Sale of New Petrol and Diesel Cars in Ten Years https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/12/22/sweden-looks-to-ban-sale-of-new-petrol-and-diesel-cars-in-ten-years/ 

Sweden Looks to Ban Sale of New Petrol and Diesel Cars in Ten Years

The Swedish government, along with the Centre Party and the Liberals have announced they will be looking to ban the sale of new cars that use fossil fuels in the next ten years.


In second place in the poll was a project from the artists’ commission that saw over a million krona donated to a project focused on art for earthworms and fungi.
Mats Caldeborg and wife Katrin Zackrisson Caldeborg were behind the project and told newspaper Expressen: “Art for birds, bumblebees, beetles, worms, and fungi is a project that wants to turn upside down in our habitual way of seeing and understanding the world. Here, nature’s smaller inhabitants are not those depicted, but themselves, in their own right, recipients of the art.”
The wasteful spending poll results come as many Swedish municipal governments face financial hardship or even bankruptcy due to a lack of money to support recently arrived migrants who have largely remained out of the labour force.
An estimated 90 per cent of migrants who came to the country during the height of the 2015 migrant crisis and received permanent residency are unemployed.

Fla man gets 90 days in jail for spitting on Trump supporter,

These attacks by leftist, socialist Democrats on POTUS Trump supporters must STOP and best way is to charge them, convict them and put them in JAIL !  
Never before in our history have such attacks been encouraged by so called “lawmakers” in Congress and other leftist elected officials as part of a “resistance movement” brought by hate for our POTUS and his supporters.  The socialist Democrats can no longer lay the false claim of being the party of tolerance as they have demonstrated their bigotry, hate and criminal, unconstitutional activities including attacks on the 1st Amendment over and over.  
The nevertrumper establishment RINOs are just as guilty as the socialist Democrats and we will show them the fallacy of their hateful actions when we re-elect President Trump; maintain the majority in the Senate and retake the House in 2020 !!!

Fla man gets 90 days in jail for spitting on Trump supporter, ordered to pay for new MAGA hat

Fla man gets 90 days in jail for spitting on Trump supporter, ordered to pay for new MAGA hat

A twisted leftist was sentenced on Thursday to 90 days in jail for spitting on a 67-year-old, MAGA-hat wearing Trump supporter in October.

The surprising justice meted out to Matthias George Ajple was attributable at least in part because the crime was caught in on camera in living color at Hurricane Grill & Wings in Vero Beach, Florida.  The registered Democrat will not only sit and stew in the Indian River County Jail for three months, but he will also serve 12 months on probation, pay a fine of $695, and fork out restitution in the amount of $155 to Robert Youngblood, the man who was the target of Ajple’s abuse. Forty dollars of the restitution was approved by County Judge David Morgan to replace the MAGA hat.
Morgan had this to say about his ruling:
“It bothers me a lot that your stated goal was to punish (Youngblood) for exercising his political speech. Here you simply punished (Youngblood) on the spot.”
“(Your attack) was despicable. It was cowardly,” Morgan said.” In our culture … to spit on somebody indicates a feeling of superiority, of disdain, and then you ran.”  In fact, that may not be the end of the pain for Ajple, as Youngblood has filed a civil lawsuit against him seeking damages of more than $15,000.  Camera footage shows Youngblood was simply sitting at the bar watching a World Series game with two friends, minding his own business.
The arrest affidavit for the 43-year-old spitter states that on Oct. 25, 2019, the “white male approached [Youngblood] and stated ‘You should go back to Russia you f***ing communist.’ After this statement the male then slapped the bill of Youngblood’s hat. The male then walked around the gate, leaned over it, spit on Youngblood and then left the scene.”
Youngblood was able to write down the license plate and police were quickly able to track him down.
The arresting officer wrote that at that time, Ajple told police, “I was just trying to protect you guys because I support Law Enforcement, Trump supporters are communist and racist.”  The affidavit also reflects that Ajple added: “I don’t even care that I’m going to jail, this is actually exciting. Plus I have more time on this earth than he does anyway, he probably feels so good about himself.”
According to The Smoking Gun, the lawsuit that is in process states that at the time of the spitting incident, Youngblood “had just undergone cancer surgery and had 17 stitches on his neck.”
The complaint alleges that Youngblood suffered emotional distress “when Ajple spit on and about him including the area of his recent cancer surgery.”  The judgment and sentencing document issued for Ajple can be viewed here …
It was stunning,” said Youngblood. “We all went ‘what the heck just happened?’”
In spite of the assault, Youngblood said he will continue to wear his MAGA hat in public. “I will never stop wearing my hat that I believe represents what I believe.”
Meanwhile, liberals are expressing disbelief at the sentence the first-time offender who pleaded “no contest” received. According to a supportive editorial in Florida Today, “Ajple’s a father of two, ages 2 and 5, the senior vice president and founding partner of a “customer data” company with offices in San Francisco and Florida. Educated in Germany and a former channel manager and games editor with AOL Time Warner, Ajple bought a home in Vero Beach in 2007, online records show.”
According to the editorial, Ajple’s attorney asked Indian River County Judge David Morgan to put Ajple on house arrest so he could help raise his children and support his family. The Florida Today opinion writer wrote, “Ajple’s partner, Laura Torres, a well-educated professional who grew up in Vero Beach, talked about her family’s suffering since the incident and the national publicity it generated. They’ve been threatened with death and rape, she said.”

From our friend…he has a lot to say…

Oh my goodness, maybe things are not so “honky dory” in Iran after all. Since Trump ordered the killing (100% legally) of the Iranian General, the media in this country have led us all to believe that Iran was now 100% unified behind the Ayatollah and his crew. Well, it appears, as usual for our glorious media establishment and the pundits, that the unity is not quite so solid for the Ayatollah and his white bearded minions of power. Yep, they  are now having very large demonstrations inside  Iran for the “white bearded robes” to step down and go away..The Country is basically bankrupt because the Ayatollah and the now dead General spent all of Iran’s money on fomenting violence throughout the Middle East for 20 years and the people of Iran are simply sick of “sky-high” gasoline prices (they have their own oil)…no jobs…and inflation running at 35/40%…Yep, they spent the entire  $145 BILLION that Obama sent them and they  have been spending whatever oil revenue they do have on all this Middle East violence and the people of Iran are simply sick of it…and sick of the “white beards”  lying to the Iranian people.. Recently the now dead General ordered the murder of more than 1500 demonstrators when they screamed and demonstrated  for better living conditions but now the Ayatollah’s chief executioner is dead..and the Ayatollah stands without his good buddy.
..And do you know why he stands alone..because Donald Trump had the temerity to kill the guy really responsible for the mayhem that has rained upon the Middle East and Iran over the past 20yrs…And the Democrats want to know why Donald had him “taken out”! The Democrats in Washington would NOT know a good deal for the American people if it hit them square in the face with a 2×4..They simply hate Trump and it really doesn’t’ matter what Trump does..Just think carefully..they claim that Trump is an existential threat to the country..A country that is “suffering” with 3.5% unemployment..$100,000 jobs to manage Taco Bell….more jobs for the Black Community and Latino Community than anytime in 50 yrs..Higher wage GROWTH  for the lower 25% of the income scale than anytime in more than 20yrs…A stock market that has generated more than $11 trillion in value since his election and they still claim that Donald is bad for America…Hey, exactly why?…It seems the only people who cannot see what is happening in America are Democrats…and their complicit, lying media buddies..
The existential threat to this lovely country is NOT DONALD TRUMP…No,,it is the likes of Nancy Pelosi…Chuck Schumer…the lying media like Lemon Head, Mika & Joe…the NYT Times..etc..That is where the existential threat comes from…. it is most  certainly not found in 3.5% unemployment….Just keep this thought in your mind for bit…Obama and John Kerry gave the Ayatollah $145 Billion without the approval of Congress…You got that?…and no one in the Democratic party  tried to IMPEACH them…And the media cheered….Just think very carefully about that…very carefully!…And then think about “EXISTENTIAL THREATS”!…Think John Brennen…Clapper…and all the rest of those people..and then think..EXISTENTIAL THREAT!…

2020 very positive outlook for Republicans to take back the house.

How 2020 Could Be A Great Year for House Republicans

Kevin McCarthy House Leader

Recruitment: McCarthy’s Key to the Speaker’s Office

by Newt Gingrich
The liberal media likes to focus on how many House Republicans are retiring. Somehow this is supposed to make Republicans feel defeated and hopeless.
In this context, I was startled recently to hear Congresswoman Elise Stefanik say 2020 was going to be the year of the House Republican woman. She went on to assert that there was an historic record being set for Republican women filing to run for the House.
I checked in with Chairman Tom Emmer at the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), and found that, if anything, Rep. Stefanik had understated the momentum of new recruits.
With House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy and the leadership team going all out, the House Republicans are setting a remarkably encouraging series of records.
Consider these numbers: The total number of Republicans filed for House seats so far is 928, according to Federal Elections Commission (FEC) figures – or 188 more than the total at the same time in 2010 (740). The year 2010 matters because it was the last time Nancy Pelosi was kicked out of the majority and Speaker John Boehner led the House GOP to its biggest gain in modern times – with his “where are the jobs” slogan. In fact, in 2010 the House GOP gained 63 seats for a majority of 242 Republicans.
The House Republican recruiting surge is also tremendously widespread. So far, I am told that Republican candidates are running in 380 congressional districts (compared to 341 districts at this point in 2010).
Importantly, women and minority candidates have surged. This is an area which has historically been a Republican weakness. In Texas alone, there are at least 30 Republican women candidates. So far, 186 women are seeking to become House Republicans in total. The previous record was 133 women running for the House as Republicans. And filing is still open in a number of states, so the number will almost certainly increase.
I am told by the NRCC there are also 146 Republican candidates from minority communities. Furthermore, 188 veterans are running for the House as Republicans.
I will write more details about women and minority candidates in future columns. However, I think it is important to note a profound change underway in financing Republican campaigns.
The Democrats had an enormous advantage in the 2018 election, because they had built an online donation system called ActBlue. ActBlue had been founded in 2004 to enable small dollar donors to easily and efficiently help Democratic candidates all over the country.
When the online system was powered by the intensity of anti-Trump emotions, there was a flood of targetable money for Democratic candidates. Activists from all over the country could conveniently go online, identify the campaigns they wanted to help, and quickly send the money.
In the 2018 cycle, this system raised $1.8 billion over the two-year period. When this scale of small donor involvement was combined with massive donors like Michael Bloomberg (who spent $5 million on ads in the last two weeks in some elections) the Democrats’ money advantage was enormous. This helps explain the Republican House defeats.
The threat posed by the ActBlue system was reinforced in 2019, when it raised more than $1 billion for the Democrats.
Republican leaders realized they had to match or exceed the small dollar system the Democrats had invented. They developed a competitive model called WinRed. (Check it out)
The intensity of support for President Trump – combined with growing anger over the Democrats’ investigation and impeachment strategy – has made WinRed a success much faster than anyone expected.
In its first two quarters, WinRed raised $101 million. Its effectiveness is growing rapidly. It raised $31 million in its first quarter of existence and more than doubled that in the second quarter with $70 million (fourth quarter of 2019). In fact, WinRed raised more in its first 190 days than ActBlue raised in its first five years.
The impact of the Democrats’ overreach on impeachment has been amazing. WinRed pages that mentioned “impeach” or “impeachment” raised 300 percent more than any other page.
In fact, the growing impact of WinRed can be seen in Congresswoman Stefanik’s experience. After her remarkable defense of President Trump on the House Intelligence Committee, she mentioned people could donate at WinRed on Fox News. In two hours, $500,000 was donated from across the country.
The combination of great recruiting, the development of WinRed as a system for engaging grassroots Republicans in races across the country, the intensity of President Trump’s support, and the self-destruction of the Democrats are combining to create a new, dynamic, aggressive House Republican Party.
If retirements are the story of the past, then recruitment is the story of the future. This is the story on which Leader McCarthy and his team are focused.
I suspect it’s the story which will make him Speaker McCarthy in January 2021.
