'Green Fraud' Author Marc Morano Describes the Hypocrisy of These Climate Summits
"We have with us a returning to America first. The man who educated me on the climate hoax. He is the founder of the climate depot, the author of the politically incorrect guy to climate change and more recently, the green fraud, why the Green New Deal? I prefer green new steel is even worse than you think Mark morano. Welcome to one on one. Thank you so much. Happy to be here today. So where have you just got back from? Did you just get back from what is ObamaCare, Scotland, completely fallaciously, the emerald isle? Where have you been Mark? I have been in the emerald well actually, I think that's Ireland. I've been in Scotland and I did not get to go. I was there for all last week. I did not get to go in one of these private jets like Jeff Bezos or Bill Gates or Al Gore, who were all at the conference as well. I had to fly commercial, but I was there all last week at this Glasgow summit and it was a doozy because I think even the longtime observers are saying, this is as Greta would say, a blah, blah, blah, summit. Not much has happened here except a lot of virtue signaling. So what is this? They're using this acronym cop. I didn't realize it's now running for multiple weeks. Well, what is this? What is this virtue signaling stand for and who, who is their Mark? Well, this is the United Nations climate summit. Cop stands for conference of parties. Bureaucratic language that they have every year. So next year's cup 27. This year's cop 25. And this whole process started in 1992 with the Rio earth summit that then Republican president George H. W. Bush signed and got us beholden to this big monster mess and then of course the first climate agreement they came up with was the Kyoto protocol when Clinton was president. And it's been going strong since then, annual basis. And they always pick exotic location. Scotland's probably the least exotic location that they've had it. I've been the Bali South America cancun all over the world. Next year is going to be in Egypt. They like to fly all over and have giant
Fox News' Dana Perino Remembers Colin Powell
"Dana perino, of course, served under George W Bush, new Colin Powell, shed the following on Fox News. But yes, I've long admired him. I remember all edge during the Gulf War. What this man is very impressive. And then the fact that I actually got to meet him and work with him, work under him, really, as the Secretary of State, it is just remarkable as ainsley as you were reading the statement and talking about his life in the previous segment in the previous interview. You realize that this man was such a man of consequence. And a consummate public servant, serving all of those years. And I was surprised to read. He was 84. Because in many ways, to me, he was ageless. In addition to all of the amazing work that he did as a military leader, one thing that people might not remember is he started an organization called America's promise. And that really encouraged civic engagement and volunteer work. And there was a little red wagon logo, and I'm a good friend as a race sale who had worked for president George H. W. Bush, then worked in his office and correspondence. And she would tell me such amazing stories about him. And then fast forward. I remember as a deputy press secretary standing in the back of the room, the east room one day and there was a, I believe it was Karzai, who achman Karzai from Afghanistan was giving a speech. And I was standing in the back of the room and Colin Powell just happened to be next to me. And I remember being very impressed by augment caramelized speech. And I said something to Colin Powell I said, wow. He is a very impressive. And Colin Powell gave me advice that I've lived with ever since, and he said, Dana, just beware of people who might be want to be dictators who speak very good English. And that was so interesting. But if you think about all the leaders that we've seen, come up through the ranks that America likes to support and then unfortunately turns out to be somebody that you question in the end. I would also say that he was a great stature. The way that he conducted himself, I really commend his books to people out there, young people who are looking to learn about leadership. He really was a consummate professional. Dana perino, who served in the Bush administration, reflected on the passing of general Colin

Trump reportedly called service members "losers" and "suckers"
"Again in the Atlantic and it sets the scene all the way back in two thousand eighteen when trump was in. Paris he was supposed to visit a cemetery for soldiers who died in war and if you'll remember he didn't actually end up going because he said the helicopter couldn't fly because it was raining. And there was a big deal about that obviously because he was afraid of a little rain. He also tried to claim that the secret service wouldn't drive but Jeffrey Goldberg says neither claim was true. In reality he says trump rejected the idea of visit because he feared his hair would become disheveled in the rain and because he did not believe it was important honor American war dead in that is according to four people with firsthand knowledge of discussion that day. He goes on to say in a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit. Trump said quote why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with losers. It continues in a separate conversation on the same trip trump referred to more than eighteen hundred marines who lost their lives at Bellawood as quote suckers for getting killed. Bellawood was apparently consequential battle in American history I don't remember it off the top of my head, but I'm just reading what's in the article here. And it says that in that same trip talking about world war. One trump asked who are the good guys in this war? He also said that he didn't understand why the United States would intervene on the side of the allies. Now you'll remember he said this about John McCain back in two thousand fifteen but lost. So I, never liked him as much after that because I don't like interest. But but Frank Franklin. We get to He. He's war hero. He's a war. He's a war hero presumes capture. I like people that weren't captured. Okay. I hate to. The article says that trump had remained fixated on McCain in that when he died back in August twenty, eighteen trump told his senior staff this time according to three sources with direct knowledge of quote we going to support that losers funeral end quote and that he became furious when he saw flags lowered to half-staff saying quote what the F. Are we doing that for guy was a f Ing Loser The White House denies this whole report by the way saying, then the Anti Yadda trump's supported the military more than any president. The article continues according to sources with knowledge of the president's views. He seems to genuinely not understand why Americans treat former prisoners of war with respect. Nor does he understand why pilots who are shot down in combat are honored by the military on at least two occasions since becoming president according to three sources with direct knowledge of his views trump referred to former president George h.w Bush as a quote loser for being shot down by the Japanese. This is where it starts to really get cruel on memorial day twenty, seventeen trump went with then department of Homeland Security Secretary John, Kelly to Arlington Cemetery. The article says the two men were set to visit section sixty, the fourteen acre area of the cemetery that it is burial ground for those killed in America's most recent wars. Kelly son Robert is buried in section sixty according to sources with knowledge of this visit trump while standing by Robert Kelly's grave turned directly to John Kelly in said quote I don't get it what was in it for them. Kelly said he originally thought trump was making a ham handed reference to these selflessness of America's all volunteer force. But later he came to realize that trump simply does not understand non transactional life choices. This is coming from one of Kelly's friends who Goldberg says a retired four. Star General. This friend says quote he can't fathom the idea of doing something for someone other than himself. He just thinks that anyone who does anything when there's no direct personal gain to be had is a sucker. There's no money in serving the nation trump can't imagine anyone else's pain. That's why he would say this to the father of a fallen marine on Memorial Day in the cemetery where he's buried. It goes on to talk about how trump is basically used the military as props how he thinks they answer only to not the constitution as evidenced by his gassing of peaceful protesters in officer who had firsthand knowledge of trump's views says quote. He has a lot of fear. He doesn't see the heroism in fighting and then Goldberg says several observers told me that trump is deeply anxious about dying or being disfigured in this worry manifests itself as disgust for those who have suffered. Than it tells another story about how trump falsely claimed he called quote virtually all of the family members of service members who had died during his term, and then when family started speaking out and saying, no, you didn't trump had to begin rush shipping condolences to those families. Felt last paragraph ends on, which is actually pretty profound. I didn't expect you know something. So big to be saved for the end I thought would be the author's own thoughts but it says in a twenty eighteen White House planning meeting for such an event trump asked to staff not to include wounded veterans on grounds that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees quote nobody wants to see that end quote. I think to me the details really do add credibility and he says he's talking to three or four sources all the time. But it got really interesting here when the Associated Press confirmed his sources essentially this tweet from James Laporta an investigative reporter former marine infantryman. Now, obviously, with the Associated Press, the port a tweeted out yesterday a senior Defense Department official I just spoke with confirmed this story by Jeffrey. Goldberg in its entirety especially the graphs about late senator, John McCain and former Marine General John Kelly president. Donald Trump's former chief of staff. So before that, you had people trying to push out, wouldn't say this. Of course, he didn't say this this is false. Trump. Himself devoted three tweets to claiming that was just a hoax made up by the media who are hungry to You know and his political career. But yeah, that was definitely a big shock when she came out in essentially confirmed most of the story. Republicans are doing their usual remaining silent or denying that it's still true. and. I just don't know how you could say it's not true. He said this in public but. I never liked him as much after that because I don't like. It was right out there and this other tweet from just some random twitter account but it made me think the commander in chief was found guilty stealing money from kids. Cancer charity mocks disabled reporters, gases, protesters for photo ops over twenty thousand lies kills one hundred, ninety, thousand Americans violate civil rights, incites violence calls, fallen soldiers, losers, and suckers. Yeah I guess if you put it against everything, we know about trump name calling certainly seems to be in his wheelhouse. Mentioned surprised that this came to be a big story
Trump called service members "losers" and "suckers"
"One president. Donald Trump cancelled visit to ain modern. That's an American cemetery near Paris in two, thousand, eighteen, he blamed rain for the last minute decision saying the helicopter couldn't fly and that the secret service wouldn't drive him there neither claim was true. Trump rejected the idea the visit because he feared his hair would become too shoveled in the rain and because he did not believe it was important to honor American war dead and that's according to four people with first hand knowledge of the discussion that day. In a conversation with senior staff members on the morning of the scheduled visit. Trump said, why should I go to that cemetery? It's filled with the losers.

And when McCain died in August twenty eighteen trump told his senior staff according to three sources with direct knowledge of the event. We're not GONNA support that losers funeral and he became furious according to witnesses when he saw flags lowered to half-staff and said what the fuck are we doing that for guy was a fucking loser. On at least two occasions becoming president according to three sources with knowledge of his views trump referred to former president George h.w Bush is a loser for being shot down by the Japanese as a navy pilot in World War Two Bush escaped capture, but eight other men shot down during the same mission were caught tortured and executed by Japanese soldiers. And trump has been for the duration of his presidency fixated on staging military parades. But only of a certain sort in a two, thousand, Eighteen White House planning meeting for such an event trump asked his staff not to include wounded veterans on the ground that spectators would feel uncomfortable in the presence of amputees quote nobody wants to see that. He said. So that is what has come out in the Atlantic and I simply am out of adjectives

"To justice department whistle blowers speaking in front of the house Judiciary Committee today outlining a series of allegations regarding what they see as political meddling in department affairs under president trump and Attorney General William Barr judiciary chair Jerry Nadler told those assembled it seems clear that bill bars actions are politically motivated and improper the Attorney General had simply missed judged the situation and thought that Mr Birmingham would go quietly then we might truck up this episode to simple miscommunication and incompetence but make no mistake this was not an isolated incident joining us on the komo news line is A.

C.'s Adam Kelsey Adam let's go into what Nadler is talking about Nadler and his fellow Democrats on the house Judiciary Committee essentially accusing the Attorney General William Barr politicized apartment justice serving as something of a cheerleader attacked Dr president trump and we heard from a number of witnesses including a former deputy Attorney General under Republican president George H.

Grand Moon Landing Plans: NASA Awards Lunar Lander Contracts to Blue Origin and SpaceX
"From wonder. I'm David Brown. And this is business. Wars daily on this Wednesday may sixth ever since John F. Kennedy ask Congress to fund a mission to the Moon in nineteen sixty one presidents have been captivated by the dream of conquering the cosmos. I've believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal before this decade is out of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth. Why the Moon why Mars? Because it is humanity's destiny to strive to seek to find we will give NASA new focus and vision for future expiration. We will build new ships to carry man forward into the universe to gain a foothold on the moon and prepare for new journey to the world's beyond our own that of course was JFK followed by President. George H W Bush in nineteen eighty nine and his son. George W Bush in two thousand four. Both bushes attempted to chart new courses for America to return to the moon. But these initiatives failed other space exploration plans of struggled to is Congress. The American people grappled with conflicts over money and namely it became difficult for taxpayers to justify spending hundreds of billions of dollars in space instead of funding urgent needs here on Terra Firma as a result the last time in American set foot on the moon was was the Apollo Seventeen mission in nineteen seventy two now in twenty twenty. That conflict has risen once again. The White House wants to put the first woman and the next man on the moon by twenty twenty four. That's four years ahead of an earlier NASA plan. President trump ordered the speed up in two thousand seventeen to make the optimist moon landing program. Nasa needs a Lunar Lander a spaceship designed to ferry astronauts from Lunar Orbit to the Moon's surface and back again late last month NASA awarded three contracts to private companies to build just such a lander in total the space agency. Funded almost a billion dollars worth of design and development. One of those contracts went to a team led by Jeff bazars his company blue origin. That team was awarded the largest of the three contracts. Almost six hundred million dollars though. Use It to design a lander somewhat like the one used in the Apollo program. Elon Musk's spacex one. A one hundred thirty five million dollar contract to work on a gigantic reusable lander spacex his lander which reportedly can carry one. Hundred tons of cargo is based on. Its starship spacecraft. Eventually the starship is intended to transport people to Mars The New York Times reports. The third contract for two hundred fifty million dollars went to a team led by Huntsville Alabama Company dianetics. The three companies have ten months to develop their lunar landers new definition of a space race. Anyone at that point NASA will have a clear idea of which lender they'll choose one prominent company. They didn't make the cut. Boeing. Nasa didn't say why it declined to award Boeing contract according to the Guardian but in December test flight of its star liner spaceship failed. That test flight had no crew aboard but the star liner was built with the intention of transporting astronauts to the International Space Station sending astronauts to the moon by twenty twenty four. He is fraught with technical organizational and financial challenges. Perhaps the toughest one is the cost. Nasr's twenty twenty budget is more than twenty billion dollars in twenty twenty one. That budget will have to increase by three billion dollars to fund the Lunar Lander according to the Guardian NASA administrator. Jim Breitenstein Stein said the agency expects Congress to fund the Optimist Moon landing mission despite the economic toll the corona virus is taken on the American economy. It's
