Strike the Root

  1. "The grand storyteller also predicted in 2011 that "there will be no more snows" on Mt. Kilimanjaro "within the decade." Four years earlier, the Guardian of Britain reported that the United Nations was warning that we had "as little as eight years left to avoid a dangerous global average rise of 2C or more." Three years and more than 1,000 days ago, then French Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius — a socialist, of course — advised us that "we have 500 days to avoid climate chaos." We could go on. But we have neither the space nor time to rack up all the missed global warming predictions. So we will merely point out that instead of these disasters, we have the climate alarmist community admitting that there has indeed been a pause in the warming and that its models failed to predict it."

  2. "Drivers are set to pay the lowest Independence Day price for gasoline since 2005 — and for the first time on record, the Fourth of July holiday per-gallon cost will run below the price from New Year’s Day, according to GasBuddy. Motorists on the road for the Fourth of July holiday weekend are expected to pay an average of $2.21 a gallon for gasoline, well below the 10-year average of $3.14, the retail fuel-pricing-information provider said on Tuesday."

  3. "Nobody else needs to dig a grave for CNN because they are doing it themselves. There has been scandal after scandal at the network, and now one of their producers has been caught on undercover video admitting that CNN has been pushing fake news stories about a connection between Donald Trump and Russia in a desperate attempt to get ratings. In other words, CNN’s entire Russia narrative has been a complete lie all along. Unfortunately for CNN, they are going to discover that once your credibility is gone it is incredibly difficult to ever get it back."

  4. "Two more Italian banks failed over the weekend– Banco Popolare di Vicenza and Veneto Banca. (In other news, the sky is blue.) The Italian Prime Minister himself stated that depositors’ funds were at risk, so the government stepped in with a bailout and guarantee package that could cost taxpayers as much as 17 billion euros. That’s a lot of money in Italy– around 1% of GDP. In fact it’s basically as much as the 17.1 billion euros they spent on national defense last year (according to an estimate by Italian think tank IAI). You don’t have to have a PhD in economics to figure out that NO government can afford to spend its entire defense budget every time a couple of medium-sized banks need a bailout."

  5. "The White House claims that the Syrian government is preparing "chemical weapon attacks". This is clearly not the case. Syria is winning the war against the country. Any such attack would clearly be to its disadvantage. The White House announcement must thereby be understood as preparation for another U.S. attack on Syria in "retaliation" for an upcoming staged "chemical weapon attack" which will be blamed on the Syrian government."
