Report: Trump will NOT pull out of Paris climate deal. White House denies.

Paris Climate Deal

Reports are coming in that the United States will not be pulling out of the Paris climate deal. Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walter issued a swift denial. The source for WSJ is European Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy Miguel Arias Cañete. Until we hear it directly from President Trump (or a spun version of it) we’ll consider it a rumor at best.

“The U.S. has stated that they will not renegotiate the Paris accord, but they will try to review the terms on which they could be engaged under this agreement,” Cañete said.

As Gabriel Malor pointed out on Twitter, this wouldn’t be the first time a denial turned out to be nothing more than stalling. “WH spox also said DACA decision hadn’t been made when that news broke… and then Trump announced three days later.”

The deal, which President Obama signed without input from Congress, would commit the U.S. to its biggest chunk of a globalist redistribution scheme that’s pretending to attack climate change but that doesn’t require the beneficiaries of the redistribution to act accordingly. Moreover, the “requirements” to achieve climate change benchmarks is obtusely tilted in favor of China and India who essentially don’t need to participate for a long, long time.

This is a massive giveaway from American taxpayers to other countries without any expectation of tangible benefit. It’s neither designed to help the environment nor is it designed to help anyone’s economy other than the beneficiaries. It’s globalist welfare hidden behind an environmental facade. We need to get out of it.

Hopefully, the President agrees. We’re hoping the reports are false.

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/trump-wont-pull-the-us-out-of-the-paris-climate-change-agreement-after-all-report/article/2634678The announcement comes about three months after Trump held a ceremony announcing the United States would be leaving the agreement. The first-of-its-kind agreement would see all the world’s nations, save for three, commit to reducing their greenhouse gas emissions in order to limit the rate of global warming.

Final Thoughts

A few weeks ago, I wouldn’t have expected this. I would have assumed it was just a false rumor or an attempt by the international community to pressure the administration. Considering the shifts in policy we’ve been seeing over the last two weeks, anything’s possible. We’ll find out in the coming days if the White House denial sticks.

Michael Flynn’s lawyers break contact with White House lawyers

Michael Flynns lawyers break contact with White House lawyers

The legal team for former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn have stopped sharing information about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian tampering in the 2016 election. This could be a blow for the President and some who are close to him if information gleaned from Flynn points to the Trump campaign, his transition team, or his administration itself.

The NY Times is reporting that four anonymous sources have said the agreement between the two legal teams has been ended from Flynn’s side. It is normal for teams with parallel interests to share information, but when there becomes a conflict of interest, any such sharing is halted. This leaves two likely possibilities: either Flynn is negotiating a deal to cooperate with the investigation or they’re cooperating already.

If it’s the former, there’s a chance the information sharing could be renewed if no deal is struck

Flynn is at the heart of the investigation. It was his actions and the White House’s reactions before and after he resigned that prompted the investigation in the first place. Flynn had lied on more than one occasions about financial interactions he’d had with Russian and Turkish interests. This made him vulnerable to blackmail, according to former acting attorney general Sally Q. Yates. After Flynn resigned, the President had a one-on-one meeting with then-FBI Director James Comey and allegedly asked him to stop pursuing Flynn. Comey was fired by the President, then leaked a memo detailing the meeting regarding Flynn.

Outcry from many in DC and in the media prompted Mueller’s appointment. Since then, he charged Paul Manafort, Rick Gates, and George Papadopoulos. Charging or cutting a deal with Flynn would likely be the step prior to pursuing people directly associated with the President.

Previous reports have suggested that the special counsel already has enough evidence to indict Flynn and his son, who also worked for Trump’s campaign.

Trump’s legal team has insisted recently that Mueller’s probe will end in the coming months, though legal experts have said the investigation is likely to drag on.

After nearly 4 decades of crimes against his people, Robert Mugabe granted immunity, military protection

After nearly 4 decades of crimes against his people Robert Mugabe granted immunity military protecti

In what may be the best deal ever struck by a dictator forcibly removed by the military and despised by a majority of his people, Zimbabwe’s former president Robert Mugabe has been granted full immunity, a “generous pension,” and military protection so he can stay in his country without fear that any of the millions of people he persecuted will be able to seek their vengeance.

Zimbabwe grants Robert Mugabe immunity from prosecution

Mugabe, who ruled Zimbabwe with an iron fist for 37 years, resigned on Tuesday, hours after parliament launched proceedings to impeach him. He had refused to leave office during eight days of uncertainty that began with a military takeover.

Emmerson Mnangagwa, the former vice-president sacked by Mugabe this month, is to be sworn in as president on Friday.

My Take

Despite complaints from the people, this is the smart move. If they allow him to leave, they have no control over him or the influence that he continues to wield at home and abroad. If they jail him, kill him, or otherwise make him face prosecution, he would be at best a distraction and at worst a martyr. This move allows them to move forward the fastest which is what former Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa and his military allies want.

Homeless vet Johnny Bobbit Jr to send additional donations to other charities

Homeless vet who helped woman 20 GoFundMe Kate McClure Johnny Bobbit Jr

Update

The page was taken down for a short time, but public outcry had them put the page back up. They now intend to donate the excess money to others, thus “paying forward the pay it forward.” Here’s the update from the GoFundMe page:

Okay, well that didn’t last very long. We just called Johnny explaining that many people are requesting the donations be left open. He is more than happy with the amount that has been raised so far, and didn’t want to seem like he is taking advantage. For the short time that we took it down, though, it is obvious that people still want to donate to this cause. He said that he has more than a few ideas of where this money can go, which he will explain more in detail tonight. You guys continue to amaze us.

Then, they posted this:

Hey guys, just to clear it up real fast. I’ve seen some things about mark or I deciding where this “extra” money will go. That couldn’t be further from the truth. The second we told Johnny about this, his first thought was to pay forward the pay it forward. He is fully aware of the world wide interest in this over the last few days. It will be his decision and his decision only on what organizations and or private parties he decides to help!! I promised myself I wouldn’t let the very few negative comments or accusations get to me but I couldn’t let THIS one sit. So that being said… I hope everyone had or is having a wonderful thanksgiving and you’re going to hear what Johnny has in mind very shortly!!

Ps. To the thousands of people who took the time to write something nice directed towards Johnny.. believe me, he is seeing all of it and you have no idea how far your kind words are going!!

Original Story

In a feel-good story just in time for Thanksgiving, an act of kindness has turned into a chance for rebuilding.

Kate McClure needed help when her car ran out of gas. That help came from an unexpected source. Homeless U.S. Marine veteran Johnny Bobbit Jr, disheveled and cold in Philadelphia, approached her as she walked to the nearest gas station. He told her to get back in her car and lock the doors. Then he spent his last $20 to buy her gas and get her on her way.

How a homeless man’s selfless act changed his life

https://nypost.com/2017/11/22/how-a-homeless-mans-selfless-act-changed-his-life/“He came back and I was almost in shock,” McClure told The Post.

Bobbit asked for nothing in return — but McClure and her boyfriend stopped by his spot several times in recent weeks, repaying him for the gas money and dropping off clothes.

“We went to Target and got him a big backpack filled with stuff, and he opened the granola bars and offered us one,” she said. “We are like, ‘We just got this for you.’ He’s extremely generous.”

As is growing more common in the age of crowdfunding, McClure and her boyfriend, Mark D’Amico, set up a GoFundMe page with an ambitious goal of $10,000. In less than two weeks, it’s at a quarter of a million dollars. Now that it’s really hitting the news hard, donations are coming in every few minutes.

“This is nuts,” McClure said.

Bobbit has been homeless for a year and a half. He was in a homeless shelter but moved under a bridge when he was robbed there.

With plenty of money for him to get off the streets, acquire transportation, and push forward, he has asked McClure to stop accepting donations:

Johnny asked me to please stop accepting donations today. He is beyond humbled by the amount of support and love he has received over the last few days! He asked, instead of donating to his campaign, to maybe take a second to search for another worthy cause that, for whatever reason, hasn’t gotten the attention his has. Later tonight, we will take some time to post a video with Johnny! He can’t wait to thank all of you and wishes he could individually if possible. Mark and I couldn’t begin to express how grateful we are that you guys made this little fantasy a reality!!

There may still be decent people in the world after all.
