BIG BLOW TO BARACK OBAMA’S CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVE …
In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations that is part of his global warming climate change initiative. 27 states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab” and that the regulations would greatly increase energy costs and put some of their industries out of business. Appellate arguments are set to begin June 2, 2016. Thankfully, the SCOTUS put a hold on anything going forward as Powerline opines, “Obama’s EPA was betting that the slow legal process would mean that they’d have a lot of things in place, and many utilities would have complied with the EPA’s dictates, before the law was settled at the Supreme Court.”
A divided Supreme Court on Tuesday abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations, dealing a blow to the administration’s sweeping plan to address global warming.
In a 5-4 decision, the court halted enforcement of the plan until after legal challenges are resolved.
The surprising move is a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab.”
By temporarily freezing the rule the high court’s order signals that opponents have made a strong argument against the plan. A federal appeals court last month refused to put it on hold.
The court’s four liberal justices said they would have denied the request.
The plan aims to stave off the worst predicted impacts of climate change by reducing carbon dioxide emissions at existing power plants by about one-third by 2030.
“We disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision to stay the Clean Power Plan while litigation proceeds,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.Earnest said the administration’s plan is based on a strong legal and technical foundation, and gives the states time to develop cost-effective plans to reduce emissions. He also said the administration will continue to “take aggressive steps to make forward progress to reduce carbon emissions.”
ITS TOO BAD THIS COMMANDER IN CHIEF DID NOT TAKE TERRORISM AS SERIOUS …
The Washington Times is reporting that the Pentagon is ordering its top commanders to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies. Guess who they get their directive from? The directive, “Climate Change Adaptation and Resilience,” is in line with President Obama’s view that global warming is the country’s foremost national security threat. This fool cannot be replaced soon enough before he does any more damage to this country. Let’s hope it is not permanent.
Oh yes Mr. President, ISIS is the JV, but global warming is the United States greatest national security threat. Lord help us.
The Pentagon is ordering the top brass to incorporate climate change into virtually everything they do, from testing weapons to training troops to war planning to joint exercises with allies.
A new directive’s theme: The U.S. Armed Forces must show “resilience” and beat back the threat based on “actionable science.”
To four-star generals and admirals, among them the regional combatant commanders who plan and fight the nation’s wars, the directive tells them: “Incorporate climate change impacts into plans and operations and integrate DoD guidance and analysis in Combatant Command planning to address climate change-related risks and opportunities across the full range of military operations, including steady-state campaign planning and operations and contingency planning.”

HMM, GORE’S NORTH POLE ICE FREE IN 5 YEARS … MISSED IT BY THAT MUCH.
As Barack Obama tries to cram his global warming agenda nonsense down our throats, Remember in 2008 when Al Gore predicted that the North Pole would be ice free within 5 years? How is that working for the North Polar Ice Cap these days? Last time I checked it was still there and growing. Gore made the prediction to a German audience in 2008. He told them that “the entire North ‘polarized’ cap will disappear in 5 years.”
The below VIDEO was more of the Goracle spewing his BS from 20019 … Here is a bit of an inconvenient truth for Al Gore … ITS STILL THERE!!!
All these lies of so-called settled science by those global warming extremists with an agenda and they are still pushing this man made global warming nonsense even after the Goracles predictions have been embarrassing disproved.

President Barack Obama has a Climate Change (Global Warming) ‘Working Dinner’ with with French President Francois Hollande at Posh Restaurant
SO I WONDER WHAT THE CARBON FOOTPRINT WAS FOR THIS GET-TOGETHER?
Okay, even the Libs and tree huggers can’t believe that this was a “working dinner” or productive to climate change. But once again, Barack “Let them eat cake” Obama wines and dines with the world elite as he pretends to care about “We the People”. Yet just another excuse to lecture people about how they should conduct their lives and limit their opportunities as Obama creates the carbon footprint that even none of ever could in our lifetime. If you actually believe in carbon footprints that is. Because only the little people are supposed to sacrifice, not the Obamamessiah.
As working dinners go, President Obama’s meal Monday night in Paris with French President Francois Hollande, Secretary of State John Kerry and others wasn’t too shabby.
No cartons of takeout — instead, the gang fueled up after a long day of climate talks at L’Ambroisie, the three-Michelin-starred temple of gastronomie in the Marais neighborhood.
Per the Michelin Guide, the ornately be-chandelier-ed dining room is known for “incomparable classicism and an immortal feast for the senses.”
Perhaps worried that Obama would create an international faux pas by ordering a burger or a margarita (two of his faves), a reporter asked what he planned to eat. Obama was, appropriately, diplomatic: “I will get recommendations from the president,” he answered, nodding in Hollande’s direction.
According to the AP, Obama cracked a joke about the opulence of the setting. “Don’t break the chandelier,” he warned as a reporter’s microphone got just a little too close to the crystal. “You can’t afford it.”
Seriously folks, who could even take any of this serious when all it looks like is an excuse for a party?

HYPOCRISY ALERT: Hillary Clinton Boarding Private Jet Just Hours After Launching Her Global-Warming Push and Stating It is One of the Most Urgent Threats of our Time
More from the liberal Democrat Hillary Clinton playbook of do what I say, not as I do, I am more important than you …
Hypocrisy Alert from the never transparent and untrustworthy Democrat presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. Not less than one hour after Hillary Clinton lectured Americans and put forth her vision to solve global warming through an aggressive carbon cutting plan in Iowa, she got on a private jet, with a carbon footprint the size of Iowa and flew off. You see, after Hillary told us what she was going to inflict upon all of us, her heiress got a an aircraft, a Dassault model Falcon 900B, burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour. Hmm, isn’t that exactly the thing that she just got through lecturing us that shouldn’t be done? But of course Hillary Clinton and her spin doctor minions would have you believe, she is just one of us little people and wants to represent you.
What Difference Does It Make that I Continually Lie Through My Teeth?
Clinton said during her speech, that global warming is one of the most urgent threats of our time, and we have no choice but to rise and meet it.” REALLY? Just curious Hillary, if its such an urgent threat of our time, what the hell are going doing boarding a private, jet fuel guzzling plane? Oh, there are different rules for you? One would think that if they are going to be so brazen and put forth such a myth as global warming is an urgent threat, they would at least walk the walk.
Just hours after Hillary Clinton unveiled her presidential campaign’s push to solve global warming through an aggressive carbon-cutting plan, she sauntered up the steps of a 19-seat private jet in Des Moines, Iowa.
The aircraft, a Dassault model Falcon 900B, burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour. And like all Dassault business jets, Hillary’s ride was made in France.
The Trump-esque transportation costs $5,850 per hour to rent, according to the website of Executive Fliteways, the company that owns it.
And she has used the same plane before, including on at least one trip for speeches that brought her $500,000 in fees.
On Monday the Democratic presidential front-runner announced the details of her initiative to tackle climate change, calling it ‘one of the most urgent threats of our time.’
But shortly afterward, a videographer working with the conservative America Rising PAC spotted her at the private air terminal in Des Moines.
HMM, WHAT HAPPENED TO GLOBAL WARMING?
The UK Telegraph is reporting that we are headed within the next 15 years to a “mini ice age”. What is Al Gore and the rest of the global warming alarmists going to say? But I thought it was settled science that the Earth had a fever caused by man-made global warming? Guess not.
The earth is 15 years from a “mini ice-age” that will cause bitterly cold winters during which rivers such as the Thames freeze over, scientists have predicted.
Solar researchers at the University of Northumbria have created a new model of the sun’s activity which they claim produces “unprecedentedly accurate predictions”.
They said fluid movements within the sun, which are thought to create 11-year cycles in the weather, will converge in such a way that temperatures will fall dramatically in the 2030s.
Solar activity will fall by 60 per cent as two waves of fluid “effectively cancel each other out”, according to Prof Valentina Zharkova.
In a presentation to the National Astronomy Meeting in Llandudno, she said the result would be similar to freezing conditions of the late 17th century.
