Retrospectively, what a week!
Whew-we! While the big man is away literary making historic moves on behalf of our country and every citizen or non-citizen who lives here – I ask you very cordially, did the press cut the guy any breaks? No, not even one minuscule little break.
Whoa-hey! Wake the blazes up America! Everyone is eagerly awaiting some news from the Supreme Court on the travel limitations executive order that was rudely upheld against all sound wisdom by the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals – that is but just one of the deterrents that his administration had to deal with. And what’s with all this protesting and rioting regarding the administration and planned parenthood?
Vice President Mike Pence was an invited guest commencement speaker at the University of Notre Dame. It should be well — noted that that Pence is a graduate of Notre Dame and the former Governor of Indiana. Moreover, it should be well-pointed out that while Pence was governor his working-class accolades included, he oversaw the largest tax cut in state history, increased the budget surplus, supported increases in education funding for preschools, voucher programs and charter schools and expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act.
On Sunday, a large number of Notre Dame graduates walked out of their ceremony in protest of Vice President Mike Pence being selected as the commencement speaker.
Led by We Go High! of St. Joseph County, Michiana Alliance for Democracy, South Bend Equality and Planned Parenthood Community Action Partners of Northwestern Indiana, local protesters plan to gather outside the main gates at Notre Dame Avenue and Angela Boulevard at 9:30 a.m. Sunday, just after the start of commencement.
April Lidinsky, with Planned Parenthood Community Action Partners and Indiana Reproductive Justice Coalition, described the protest as an “unwelcome home” celebration for the former governor. Lidinsky is also a professor at Notre Dame teaching “women’s rights, and gender studies.”
Mary Ellen Hegedus is an organizer with We Go High! of St. Joseph County, a grassroots group committed to promoting the “inalienable rights” of all Americans.
The entire protest of Mary Ellen Hegedus and her advocacy group is not worthy to even write about, except that zero was either spoken of or about (inalienable rights). Does our Creator have anything whatsoever to do with birth control?
So, let’s travel on to this holier than thou stuff with The Paris Accord. If one really needs to see what or why the United States dropped out have a good look at either this site, or this site, or this one. All I care to admit is these three matters.
- $100 billion dollars per year starting now
- John Kerry, the former Secretary of State, announced that grant-based adaptation finance would double by 2020.
- US President Barack Obama claimed that “Even if we meet every target … we will only get to a part of where we need to go.” He also said that “this agreement will help delay or avoid some of the worst consequences of climate change. It will help other nations ratchet down their emissions over time, and set bolder targets as technology advances, all under a strong system of transparency that allows each nation to evaluate the progress of all other nations.”
This is without question the worst money spending obligation ever to take place involving America. Each nation is to send their money to the United Nations Secretariat annually, that being $100 billion a month until 2020 thereupon the fees double to $200 billion a month until 2025 and then it is renegotiating the funding until 2035.
Clearly, a matter that would have to be legislated insofar as companies, agencies, work positions, man/women power, are at a pure sacrifice for the sake of “climate control.” There are zero agencies involved with accounting for a nation’s money or participation.
