COP27 indictment: Americans are climate criminals and must pay

November 30, 2022  •  The Washington Times

Three weeks ago, I warned you, dear reader, that the "climate summit" getting underway at the chic Egyptian seaside resort of Sharm El-Sheikh was up to no good. But the 12-day-long 27th Conference of the Parties – a U.N.-sponsored moveable feast dominated by fearmongering socialist globalists exceeded even my low expectations.

The COP27 summiteers indicted America and other wealthy nations for crimes against the climate and imposed fines in the interest of "climate justice."

To help you understand how wrongheaded this is, I will summarize the economic history of the world in four sentences:

Why sic the FBI on the IDF?
The shut-and-open case of Shireen Abu Akleh

November 23, 2022  •  The Washington Times

Covering armed conflicts is a risky business. Shireen Abu Akleh, a reporter for al-Jazeera, must have known that.

A Jerusalem-born, naturalized U.S. citizen, Ms. Abu Akleh went to the West Bank town of Jenin on May 11 to cover a clash between the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) and members of a Palestinian terrorist cell responsible for more than a dozen recent assassinations of Israeli civilians in Israeli cities.

A bullet struck and killed her. She was the 13th al-Jazeera journalist killed in a conflict zone somewhere around the world since the news-and-propaganda outlet, owned by the state of Qatar, was founded in 1996.

The speech Biden should give (but don't hold your breath)

November 16, 2022  •  The Washington Times

Good afternoon! Well, as you know, I'm just back from the Middle East and Asia. I've been doing a lot of thinking – no joke! – and I want to share some of my thoughts with you, my fellow Americans.

Here's the deal, folks: As I've said before, I'm pleased with the results of the midterm elections. But 70 percent of Americans say they're unhappy with the state of our nation. And my Republican colleagues may have won a slender majority in the House.

So, the next two years will be different from the past two years. If I'm going to unite Americans – always one of my goals – and if I'm to govern in the American people's interest, bipartisanship is required. It's my job to lead the way. I'm not being facetious!

United Nations' climate summit COP27 threatens our planet

November 9, 2022  •  The Washington Times

COP27 began on Sunday and I'm following the action. By action, I mean 12 days of mind-numbing meetings, speeches, and virtue signaling, spiced up with misrepresentations of scientific research and data.

COP stands for Conference of the Parties. The parties in question do not feature beer, dancing, and flirting. The term refers to the 197 governments that began getting together back in 1992 for United Nations "climate summits." This COP, the 27th, is taking place in Sharm el-Sheik, a posh Egyptian resort on the Red Sea.

In 2015, 194 countries signed the Paris Agreement, pledging to "pursue efforts" to limit global temperature rise to 1.5 Celsius above pre-industrial levels.

Left is having second — and third — thoughts on Putin's Ukraine war

November 2, 2022  •  The Washington Times

The Congressional Progressive Caucus, as I suspect you know, is the club for far-left House members. On October 24, its chair, Rep. Pramila Jayapal, sent the White House a letter signed by 30 of her colleagues. The subject was Vladimir Putin's imperialist and colonialist war against Ukraine.

Ignoring recent Ukrainian battlefield advances, and the absence of any sign that Mr. Putin is prepared to end the conflict, the letter urged President Biden to engage in "direct talks with Russia," "make vigorous diplomatic efforts in support of a negotiated settlement," and "reiterate this goal as America's chief priority."

Less than 24 hours later, Ms. Jayapal withdrew the letter.
