Why we should be thanking President Trump for Paris Agreement pullout

Paris accord is a money grabbing political farce

After riding out the 45 day ban that I was given on Facebook. The Paris accord or agreement has been on many people’s minds. I wholeheartedly agree with President Trump’s actions and reasoning behind removing our country from this heinous redistribution of our country’s tax dollars. I wasn’t alone in these thoughts. One of the people on Facebook that I follow wrote a dynamic post on the diabolical actions of the previous administration and why obama attempted to get the United States bogged down in another self-deprecating accord. Read below in its entirety the post that I woke up to on June 4, 2017 on Facebook.

This was just posted by a friend so I thought I would share it! Yes, Obama attempted to screw America and Pres. Trump is reversing a bad decision. Read on.

In December 2015, nine months before the end of his presidency, Barrack Obama signed the Paris Accord. The United States did not. In order to ratify it as a treaty 2/3 of the Senate had to approve it. Obama told us it was not a treaty, but an executive agreement between himself and other nations. The Paris agreement was an agreement only with the Obama Administration, and an unratfied treaty in which case it had no effect. The Constitution’s separation of powers prevents the President from binding the country unilaterally. Our system does not divide authority into spheres controlled exclusively by the Senate, House and President. It requires combinations of offices to work together.
Obama’s counterparties in Paris knew he lacked the support to bind our country. In fact, they watered down the wording of the agreement to support Obama’s agreement that it does not require ratification. Examples: they changed the word “shall” to “should” in many places in order to avoid calling it a treaty. The negotiators choose between a treaty that would bind the United States and the promise of an outgoing president. Any claims that Trump or the United States “is going back on it words” is disingenuous. Only Obama gave his word and the other parties in Paris helped design the agreement to throw our Constitution out the window. Obama ignored his constitutional duty to submit treaties to the Senate. In fact, a statement from the Obama White House said it all when the White House signaled it would bypass the Senate no matter what by saying ” I think it’s hard to take seriously from some members of Congress who deny the fact that climate change exists, that they should have some opportunity to render judgement about a climate change agreement.”
Under the agreement Obama signed, the UN would have called the shots on what we did within our own borders to protect the climate. They would have also had the power to punish us through embargoes and trade agreements.
Under Obama’s agreement, China, the world’s major polluters are ALLOWED to increase their emissions where the United States cannot. India is hinging it’s participation on billions of dollars of foreign aid.
The agreement was less about the climate and more about other countries gaining financial advantage over the United States.
This was a United Nations program that gave foreign leaders in Europe and Asia more say with respect to the United States economy then we do. It would have handicapped the United States economy – it was a deal that would have punished the United States, while imposing no obligations on the world’s leading polluters. China would be allowed to build hundreds of additional coal plants, but we can not, according to the agreement. India would be allowed to double it’s coal production by 2020, but we have to get rid of ours. Even Europe is allowed to continue construction of coal plants, but we can not.
Obama’s requirements in the Paris Accord would cost the United States economy nearly $3 trillion.
By 2040 our economy would lose 6.5 million industrial sector jobs including 31 million manufacturing sector jobs.
It would decapitate our coal industry which now supplies one-third of our electric power.
It imposed unrealistic targets on the United States for reducing our carbon emissions, while giving countries like China a free pass.
China would actually be allowed to INCREASE emissions until 2030.
Obama committed $3 billion to the Green Climate Fund – which is about 30 percent of the initial funding – WITHOUT being authorized by Congress.
We are $20 trillion in debt, US taxpayers should not be paying to subsidized other countries energy needs.

The United States is already a Clean Energy and Oil & Gas Energy Leader. We can reduce our emissions and continue to produce American energy without the Paris Accord. America has already reduced it carbon-dioxide emissions dramatically (who remembers those yearly emission tests).
The United States is the leader in oil and gas production.

For anyone that thought the Paris Accord was all about clean river and air, it is not and never was.

THE AGREEMENT FUNDS A UNITED NATIONS CLIMATE SLUSH FUND UNDERWRITTEN BY THE AMERICAN TAXPAYERS.

Manchester’s Morrisey has the will to call it like it is

Celebrating my birthday in Manchester as news of the Manchester Arena bomb broke. The anger is monumental.
For what…

Posted by Morrissey Official on Tuesday, May 23, 2017

And because I continue to ride out my Facebook ban of 45 days. I cannot voice my own support on the Morrisey Facebook Fan Page. However, many of the well-known conservative twitter army has made it possible for me to vent my appreciation.

Tuesday Group Chairman MacArthur Resigns Over Healthcare Fallout

Rep. Tom MacArthur on Tuesday resigned as chair of the Tuesday Group — moderate Republicans — over fallout from the healthcare legislation that bore his name, The Hill reported.

House Republicans passed the MacArthur amendment of the American Health Care Act, crafted by the New Jersey Republican along with the chairman of the conservative Freedom Caucus, Rep. Mark Meadows.

Moderate Republicans were not thrilled. Come Tuesday, MacArthur had had enough.

“While some embraced my efforts as co-chairman, others have bristled. Clearly, our group is divided. Many in the Tuesday Group are eager to live up to our ideal of being problem-solvers, while others seem unwilling to compromise. The recent healthcare debate was illustrative,” The Hill quoted MacArthur on Tuesday.

“It’s clear that some in the Tuesday Group have different objectives and a different sense of governing than I do,” MacArthur said.

California's Single-Payer Healthcare Would Cost $400 Billion

A single-payer healthcare system in California would cost approximately $400 billion annually, according to a legislative analysis released ahead of the proposal’s hearing in a key fiscal committee, the Los Angeles Times reported on Tuesday.

Questions about the cost have been up to now one of the largest and most important unanswered questions about the plan to overhaul the state’s healthcare coverage.

The bill would get rid of health insurance companies, include coverage for those in the country illegally and have no out-of-pocket costs for residents, the Washington Examiner reported.

The analysis found that although the price tag is $400 billion per year, the new costs would be less, in the range of between $50 billion and $100 billion annually.

This is so because some $200 billion of existing funds would be repurposed to go towards the new system and projections estimate that universal healthcare would also reduce spending by employers and employees statewide, according to the Times.

The extra funds needed for the system could be raised by a new 15 percent payroll tax on employers, the analysis proposed.

But for that to happen, two-thirds of California’s Assembly and Senate must approve it. However, even if the bill was signed into law in the state, President Donald Trump would also have to approve the waivers, because Medicare and Medicaid would be expected to pay for about half the program.

The Examiner pointed out that attempts by other states at a single-payer system have failed because of concerns about costs, such as in Colorado and Vermont.

Rep. McCaul: Muslims Must 'Step Up to the Plate' in Fight Against Terrorism

Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, said Tuesday, in response to the attack in Manchester, U.K. Monday night, that Muslims must do more to fight against radical terrorists.

Moderate Muslims “have to step up to the plate and clean up their own religion, which has been perverted by this radical Islamist terror,” McCaul said on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” pointing to President Donald Trump’s Sunday speech in which he urged Middle Eastern countries to wipe out “Islamic extremism” in the region and framing it as a “battle between good and evil,” rather than between Islam and the West.

“A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and extremists. Drive them out,” Trump said. “Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy land. And drive them out of this Earth.”

The president addressed the attack on Tuesday, calling the perpetrators “losers” while in Bethlehem, according to CNN.

“So many young beautiful innocent people living and enjoying their lives murdered by evil losers in life. I won’t call them monsters because they would like that term. They would think that’s a great name. I will call them from now on losers because that’s what they are,” he said. “They’re losers, and we’ll have more of them, but they’re losers, just remember that.”

McCaul said that despite Trump’s attempts to build bridges between Muslims, Christians and Jews, that “This ideology’s way too strong. And we’re going to see more of these attacks in the future.”
