Christiana%20Figueres%20TwitterCNS News: “The United Nations’ top climate change official says the U.N.’s goal is to “intentionally transform the economic development model” in place “since the Industrial Revolution.”

To achieve that goal, $10.2 billion has been pledged by 27 developed nations as Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) to help Third World countries cope with the alleged effects of climate change, including a $3 billion pledge made by President Obama last November in what one official called a “game-changing moment.”

The twin objectives of the U.N.’s next major climate change conference, which will be held in Paris in December, are to raise at least $100 billion per year in NDCs from industrialized nations while reducing their greenhouse gas emissions to zero by the end of the century to stop global warming even though, according to satellite data, there has been no warming for more than 18 years.”

Opinion: “Good morning, Mr. Phelps… Your mission, Jim, should you choose to accept it: take assets from bloated, overdeveloped, carbon-spewing nations (except China) and confiscate the wealth they made on the backs of the poor. Deposit those assets to the global governance board for fair and equitable redistribution to deserving nations. As always should any member of your IMF force be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow all knowledge of your actions. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck, Jim.”

Between Pope Francis, President Obama, and the December climate change summit, 2015 should be quite a sideshow – pass the popcorn.

B9LAFM7CEAE-EHPBreitbart: “If the Internet economy was a country, it would rank fifth, behind only the U.S., China, Japan, and India. Economic activity on the Internet totals $4.2 trillion, and almost half of the earth’s 7 billion people are already connected to the Web.

Ajit Pai’s description of “President Obama’s 332-page plan to regulate the Internet” sounds Orwellian. He tweeted a picture of himself holding the 332-page plan just below a picture of a smiling Barack Obama with a comment, “I wish the public could see what’s inside.” The implication depicted Obama as George Orwell’s “Big Brother.”

Pai also released a statement: “President Obama’s plan marks a monumental shift toward government control of the Internet. It gives the FCC the power to micromanage virtually every aspect of how the Internet works,” he said. “The plan explicitly opens the door to billions of dollars in new taxes on broadband… These new taxes will mean higher prices for consumers and more hidden fees that they have to pay.”

Opinion: Ask yourself, what government oversight plan has worked over the past 5 years? Obamacare, the VA, IRS? then ask yourself if you think that same government would be best to regulate the internet?

First – this is a back door approach to the 1949 Fairness Doctrine that “required the holders of broadcast licenses to present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was, in the Commission’s view, honest, equitable and balanced.”

Translation: While listening to a Christian pastor an atheist would have equal time for dissenting views.

Second  -the president wants the FCC to regulate the internet the same way that it regulates public utilities under Title II.

Translation: A new form of taxation.

I hate to keep repeating myself but a future dictator cannot have annoyances like opposing points of view plastered all over the internet. So if you like your internet you can’t keep that either.

The New American: “One of Sen. Sessions’ aides said the boondoggle is a “serious matter that deserves attention” and another signal of how “Washington is disconnected from reality.”

As revelations of the loophole have spread, waves of illegal immigrants have been flooding tax preparation offices to cash in on the tax “refund.” Amazingly, Segal found that numerous illegal immigrants were claiming tax credits — eligible for up to $1,000 per child — for children living in Mexico; moreover, some were even documented as nieces and nephews.”

Fiddling with temperature data is the biggest science scandal ever

The Telegraph: “When future generations look back on the global-warming scare of the past 30 years, nothing will shock them more than the extent to which the official temperature records – on which the entire panic ultimately rested – were systematically “adjusted” to show the Earth as having warmed much more than the actual data

The fall of Yemen's government is a huge problem for Saudi Arabia

Business Insider: “Friday marked the death knell of the internationally-backed post-Arab Spring order in Yemen, whose parliament and government were finally dissolved by the Iranian-allied Houthi rebels who took over Sa’ana in late 2014. The ousted president, Abd-Rabbouh Mansour Hadi, was a highly cooperative US counter-terror partner, and the UN had dispatched a special envoy

Obama’s Trans-Alaska Oil Assault

Wall Street Journal: “The Arctic Outer Continental Shelf is estimated to hold at least 27 billion barrels of oil. ANWR is thought to have at least 10 billion more, while NPRA—designated in 1976 as a strategic petroleum stockpile—is considered equally rich. Yet not one drop of oil is flowing from these areas, and Mr. Obama
