RUSH: So I’m watching CNN this morning, I have it on, all of a sudden I look up and I see Christine Todd Whitman. Christine Todd Whitman, the former Republican governor of New Jersey and quintessential Republican establishment type, RINO, if you will, right out of the McCain wing of the party. You know what she’s talking about? The need for serious climate change action.
She’s quoting from the Trump administration climate change report which, for about the gazillionth time now in the last 30 years, warns us that we only have 10 years left to address these dire circumstances or else by the end of the century, 82 years from now, we’re gonna die. We have 10 years. And if we don’t do what these people say needs to be done in 10 years, then in another 82 years, we are gonna die.
I looked at that just on the surface of it. How do we even have a chance when brain-dead RINOs even fall for this stuff? And by the way, I mean brain-dead falling for it. It could well be that they’re just their own version of pro-government, leftist type activists and sign on to it just because the government says so. But I also wonder how many people on our side who buy into this stuff really just don’t know, they just accept it because they think the sources are credible?
Well, it turns out — and of course one of the selling points in this latest climate report, “Well, it came from Trump’s own administration!” And the media’s loving running around saying that Trump’s saying I just don’t believe it. “Well, what do you mean? Your own administration put out the report.” And Trump said (paraphrasing), “I didn’t put out the report. It may have come from people who work in Washington, but they’re not part of my operation. I did not put out the report. I do not believe it.”
Then they start mocking him and making fun of him as being a full-fledged idiot. And if you’re just patient, if people are just patient and we eventually will find out, “Andrew Light, who worked on the 2015 Paris accord negotiations as a senior adviser to the U.S. Special Envoy on Climate Change under Secretary of State John F. Kerry, served as a review editor for the assessment –” In other words, an Obamaite wrote this climate report in the Trump administration.
“Andrew Light, who worked on the 2015 Paris accord negotiations as a senior adviser to the U.S. Special Envoy on Climate Change under Secretary of State John F. Kerry, served as a review editor for the assessment, overseeing the pivotal final chapter that concluded under a worst-case scenario that global warming could wipe out as much as 10 percent of the U.S. economy by 2100.”
“Mr. Light also spent five years as senior fellow and director of international climate policy at the Center for American Progress, which was founded and now led by longtime Democratic insider [and phishing victim] John Podesta. The center is also financed by liberal billionaires such as Mr. Soros and Mr. Steyer.”
So this Trump administration, like any other, has career appointees. The left gets themselves appointed to these career positions, they never leave, and they serve to corrupt. Even though we have a new president from a New Party, Obamaites still populate much of Washington in the bureaucracies and in the cabinet level departments and so forth, like FDA, EPA. I mean they’re all over the place, just like the left appoints judges who are left-wing activists, not really judges, and they are there to provide election loss insurance.
And so here we basically have somebody that worked for John Kerry and this phony special envoy on climate change who had the final review of the Trump administration National Climate Assessment.
“The involvement of Mr. Light and other figures known for their climate change advocacy has raised questions about the credibility of the report, which has been widely depicted as a politically neutral, scientific document.” Yes, everything the left does is never said to be liberal. It’s never said to be socialist.
It’s always said to be nonpartisan. It’s always said to be neutral. It’s always said to be scientific, put together by disinterested specialists, just like Mueller is a disinterested, dispassionate enforcer of the law. So, once again, the nation has been totally misled. An uber-left-wing hack climate change activist disguised as a scientist and envoy writes the final review, the last chapter review of the whole thing. It gets published under false premises.
This is why Trump is so valuable. You realize how many people would cave to the pressure on this? Most would say, “Well, if my administration put it out, I have to back it. If my administration put this out, I can’t disavow my own administration.” But there’s Trump doing so.
This is deep state, folks.
