  1. Wind is intermittent at best and a danger to the environment in its current form of huge wind turbines. More birds have been killed by wind turbines than by hunters or cars. Solar energy capture is at best only 40 to 65 percent efficient which means you need to purchase a minimum of 2.5 panels to get the needed amount of power 1 panel claims it captures. Part of this reason is how the sun traverses the sky, the location in relation to latitude, the amount of rain, snow and cloudy days (this calculation is called a sun rating). The best sun rating in the USA right now out of 100 possible is not even near 100 but more in the mid 80's. There would be greater benefit in hydroelectric generation than either solar or wind but then we begin to get into something entirely different. Solar will always be a good back up but should not be relied upon as a primary. Wind is too intermittent to even qualify as a backup unless there are sustainable winds over 8 mph 24 hours a day, every day. And since this really only occurs in the remotest of places, this is not a viable energy source. Algae to replace fossil fuel has a promising outlook as it is something humans do not normally eat and thus far is a clean burn.
  2. No I could care less about the exclamation point. The issue was when voilà was spelled as voi'la. Don't know what was happening there but it was flat out a wrong attempt to correct the viola misspelling.
  3. Apparently, since you speak in double speak and deny what you meant when it is clear what you intended to say. Thus avoiding getting penalties for doing it. As I have read through this thread you have called people names and have not received any ramifications for doing so other a warning from the admin.
  4. This could be said about another who has regurgitated posts. Luigi is not the only one who regurgitates rumors from con men and pot heads but the other person doesn't do it in this thread. He did for a while but then he went right back to posting them on another thread. Yet, people only get on Luigi for doing it. No word is said about the other person bringing the crapola into this website. Hint: I have called him out before on it.
  5. Well hey the government of Iraq is on track considering the Congress of the USA. Since Congress started its 116th session, it has only passed 17 laws to date.
  6. My daddy always asked me to pull his finger so that he could cut something else (also government related).
  7. Think about this... In the 1970's I was in grade school and came across the word googol in the dictionary. Was told way back then there was no such thing and people made fun of it. Then in the 1980's we heard (NSFW warning) Then came along a spider called google.com. Now you know the rest of the story...
  8. Adam and Eve did not start in Africa. Adam and Eve started in the Garden of Eden which is located in Iraq or so I last heard. But then again there are arguments that the city of Mecca is not where it currently is either. Potato potaatoe.
  9. Wait, I thought Pehosi and Schifty Schiff didn't need a quid pro quo just the quid. Bribery is just another term for quid pro quo. The demonrats just changed the terminology for low info voters to coincide with the Articles in the Constitution. Another sham fantasy by the demonrats. Shifty Shiff for brains has a new nickname... Squidward.
  10. I didn't verify the math, I merely used what he gave as an answer to show how to calculate the result using a calculator. The math I provided is correct. The mistake he made was when he calculated 96 x 32,000 which you correctly show.
  11. The first ten -illions: A million (1) has a 1 followed by 6 zeros. A billion (2) has a 1 followed by 9 zeros. A trillion (3) has a 1 followed by 12 zeros. A Quadrillion (4) has a 1 followed by 15 zeros. A Quintillion (5) has a 1 followed by 18 zeros. A Sextillion (6) has a 1 followed by 21 zeros. A Septillion (7) has a 1 followed by 24 zeros. An Octillion (8) has a 1 followed by 27 zeros. A Nonillion (9) has a 1 followed by 30 zeros A Decillion (10) has a 1 followed by 33 zeros. Where 1 can be any whole number between 1 and 9, inclusive. The zeroes are placeholders that can be any whole number between 0 and 9, inclusive. FYI: Ten-duotrigintillion, more commonly known as a Googol, which is where Google gets it name.
  12. Your computer/calculator can do 3168 x 12. Then add to your answer the total number of zeroes from both numbers to get your answer. 1. 3168 x 12 = 38016 2. Add 8 zeroes to the end of that number to get 3801600000000. 3. Then put in the commas to purty it up => $3,801,600,000,000 is your answer using the numbers you provided.
  13. Most political ads add nothing but rather subtract from the discourse.
  14. The problem with your reading of the emoulment clause and the actions of Trump before he was sworn in as President is this which makes the emoulment clause moot Trump hands over business empire to sons 12 January 2017 Share this with Facebook Share this with Messenger Share this with Twitter Share this with Email Share Image copyrightGETTY IMAGES Image captionDonald Trump and his lawyer Sheri Dillon outlined how his business interests will be managed US President-elect Donald Trump says he is handing over his business empire to his sons, Donald Jr and Eric. He told a news conference he had formally given "complete and total" control to them in a bid to avoid conflicts of interest. Mr Trump's lawyer, Sheri Dillon said the President-elect had "isolated" himself from his businesses. But the Office of Government Ethics said Mr Trump's plan didn't "meet the standards" of former presidents. The organisation's director Walter Shaub said the office's primary recommendation was that Mr Trump "divest his conflicting assets". Conflicts of interest Speaking at Mr Trump's first news conference since he was elected in November, Ms Dillon explained that all of the Trump Organization's businesses would be transferred to a trust controlled by his sons and the chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, before Mr Trump takes power on 20 January. "Together, Don, Eric, and Allen will have the authority to manage the Trump Organization and will make decisions for the duration of the presidency without any involvement whatsoever by President-elect Trump," said Ms Dillon, whose firm Morgan, Lewis and Bockius has been instructed by Mr Trump to draw up a structure to keep his business interest searate. ADVERTISEMENT inRead invented by Teads Ms Dillon added that an ethics adviser would be appointed to the management board of the trust to oversee any potential conflicts of interest. However, speaking later at the Brookings Institution think tank, Mr Shaub said: "Nothing short of divestiture will resolve these conflicts." Constructive feedback "I don't think divestiture is too high a price to pay to be the president of the United States of America," he added. The Office of Government Ethics is not an enforcement body - it is there to guard against government members being involved in conflicts of interest. Mr Shaub said: "My hope is that if the Office of Government Ethics can provide some constructive feedback on his plan he may choose to make adjustments that will help him resolve his conflicts of interest." He said he had been glad in November when Mr Trump tweeted that he wanted to in no way have a conflict of interest with his businesses. "Unfortunately his current plan can't achieve that goal." he said. Mr Shaub pointed out that all presidents since 1978 had either established a blind trust, which is run by independent trustees, or limited their investments to non-conflicting assets like diversified mutual funds which are exempt under the conflict of interest law. "This is not a blind trust, it's not even close, "said Mr Shaub. "The only thing it has in common with a blind trust is the label trust. "His sons are still running the business and of course he knows what he owns." Mr Shaub concluded his remarks by saying he was "happy to offer my assistance and the assistance of my staff if he [Mr Trump] decides to adjust his plan." What conflicts of interest could Donald Trump have? A list of Trump's potential conflicts Trump's foreign business entanglements Turning down deals Ms Dillon said Mr Trump wanted to be clear that he was not using his presidency for his personal benefit. No new foreign deals will be made during Mr Trump's presidency, according to Ms Dillon, and domestic deals will be subject to a "rigorous vetting process". And she said the group has cancelled more than 30 pending deals in recent weeks, in order to avoid potential conflicts of interest. Earlier in the news conference Mr Trump said he had rejected a $2bn deal in Dubai last weekend, demonstrating he was putting his business activities behind him.
  15. JUDICIAL WATCH JUDICIAL WATCH: NEW BENGHAZI DOCUMENTS CONFIRM CLINTON EMAIL COVER-UP (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released new Clinton emails on the Benghazi controversy that had been covered up for years and would have exposed Hillarious Clinton’s email account if they had been released when the State Department first uncovered them in 2014. The long withheld email, clearly responsive to Judicial Watch’s lawsuit seeking records concerning “talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack,” contains Clinton’s private email address and a conversation about the YouTube video that sparked the Benghazi talking points scandal (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:14-cv-01242)). This Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit led directly to the disclosure of the Clinton email system in 2015. The Clinton email cover-up led to court-ordered discovery into three specific areas: whether Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server was intended to stymie FOIA; whether the State Department’s intent to settle this case in late 2014 and early 2015 amounted to bad faith; and whether the State Department has adequately searched for records responsive to Judicial Watch’s request. The court also authorized discovery into whether the Benghazi controversy motivated the cover-up of Clinton’s email. (The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”) The September 2012 email chain begins with an email to Clinton at her private email address, “hdr22@clintonemail.com,” from Jacob Sullivan, Clinton’s then-senior advisor and deputy chief of staff. The email was copied to Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s then-chief of staff, and then was forwarded to then-Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Strategic Communications and Clinton advisor Phillipe Reines: From: Sullivan, Jacob J Sent: Saturday, September 29, 2012 11 :09 AM To: ‘hdr22@clintonemail.com’ <hdr22@clintonemail.com> Cc: Mills, Cheryl D Subject: Key points HRC, Cheryl – Below is my stab at tp’s for the Senator call. Cheryl, I’ve left the last point blank for you. These are rough but you get the point. I look forward to sitting down and having a Hillarious~to-John conversation about what we know. l know you were frustrated by the briefing we did and I’m sorry our hands were tied in that setting. It’s important we see each other in person, but over the phone today I just wanted to make a few points. First, we have been taking this deadly seriously, as we should. I set up the ARB in record time, with serious people on it. l will get to the bottom of all the security questions. We are also in overdrive working to track down the killers, and not just through the FBI. We will get this right. Second, the White House and Susan were not making things up. They were going with what they were told by the IC [Intelligence community]. The real story may have been obvious to you from the start (and indeed I called it an assault by heavily armed militants in my first statement), but the IC gave us very different information. They were unanimous about it. Let me read you an email from the day before Susan went on the shows. It provides the talking points for HPSCI [House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence] and for her public appearance. It’s from a very senior official at CIA, copying his counterparts at DNI [Director of National Intelligence], NCTC [National Counterterrorism Center], and FBI: Here are the talking points … –The currently available information suggests that the demonstrations in Benghazi were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the US Embassy in Cairo and evolved into a direct assault against the US Consulate and subsequently its annex. There are indications that extremists participated in the violent demonstrations. -This assessment may change as additional information is collected and analyzed and as currently available information continues to be evaluated. –The investigation is on-going, and the US Government is working with Libyan authorities to bring to justice those responsible for the deaths US citizens. That is exactly what Susan said, following the guidance from the IC. She obviously got bad advice. But she was not shading the truth. Third, you have to remember that the video WAS important. We had four embassies breached because of protests inspired by it. Cairo, Tunis, Khartoum, and Sanaa. We had serious security challenges in Pakistan and Chennai and some other places. All this was happening at the same time. So many of the contemporaneous comments about the video weren’t referring in any way to Benghazi. Now of course even in those countries it was about much much more than the video, but the video was certainly a piece of it one we felt we had to speak to so that our allies in those countries would back us up. (In fact, as Judicial Watch famously uncovered in 2014, the “talking points” that provided the basis for Susan Rice’s false statements were created by the Obama White House.) Judicial Watch requested records related to the Benghazi talking points in May 2014. In July 2014, it filed suit. The Clinton email finally released this month was first identified by the State Department in September, 2014 but was withheld from Judicial Watch despite it specifically referencing talking points. After it was specifically described in an Office of the Inspector General report, the court ordered its production. It was only after Judicial Watch informed the State Department it was prepared to file a motion with the court to compel production of the records that the Department relented and produced the 2012 email in question. (In an August 22, 2019, hearing, U.S. District Judge Royce C. Lamberth ordered production of the record in granting Judicial Watch significant new discovery in the case. Judge Lamberth said, “There is no FOIA exemption for political expedience, nor is there one for bureaucratic incompetence.” The judge also stated that the government has mishandled this case and the discovery of information including former Secretary Clinton’s emails so poorly that Judicial Watch may have the ability to prove they acted in “bad faith.”) “This email is a twofer – it shows Hillarious Clinton misled the U.S. Senate on Benghazi and that the State Department wanted to hide the Benghazi connection to the Clinton email scheme,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Rather than defending her email misconduct, the Justice Department has more than enough evidence to reopen its investigations into Hillarious Clinton.” The court is considering whether to allow Judicial Watch to question Hillarious Clinton and her top aide in person and under oath about the email and Benghazi controversies. Last month, the State Department, under court order, finally provided Judicial Watch a previously hidden email, which shows top State Department officials used and were aware of Hillarious Clinton’s email account. Judicial Watch’s discovery over the last several months found many more details about the scope of the Clinton email scandal and cover-up: John Hackett, former Director of Information Programs and Services (IPS) testified under oath that he had raised concerns that former Secretary of State Hillarious Clinton’s staff may have “culled out 30,000” of the secretary’s “personal” emails without following strict National Archives standards. He also revealed that he believed there was interference with the formal FOIA review process related to the classification of Clinton’s Benghazi-related emails. Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s White House liaison at the State Department, and later Clinton’s personal lawyer, admitted under oath that she was granted immunity by the Department of Justice in June 2016. Justin Cooper, former aide to President Bill Clinton and Clinton Foundation employee who registered the domain name of the unsecure clintonemail.com server that Clinton used while serving as Secretary of State, testified he worked with Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, to create the non-government email system. In the interrogatory responses of E.W. (Bill) Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, he stated that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President. Jacob “Jake” Sullivan, Clinton’s senior advisor and deputy chief of staff when she was secretary of state, testified that both he and Clinton used her unsecure non-government email system to conduct official State Department business. Eric Boswell, former assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, testified that Clinton was warned twice against using unsecure BlackBerry’s and personal emails to transmit classified material. ###
  16. Wrong, Soros wants to see the US have a Civil War. It's Soros' way of getting back at the USA for destroying the Third Reich. Soros has a long history dating back to WWII. It is an interesting read sometime. Soros isn't about money in the way of getting wealthy. Soros wants to bring back the Third Reich and has been trying to do so. Since he is getting very old, he is passing his ideology to his son who will then take up that torch. Soros is about regime change, towards socialism and fascism, in all of the Allied states that beat on Germany. The Koch brothers are all about gaining wealth. There is a difference between the two. Soros gains wealth because he is bitter Germany lost and trying to destroy from the inside.
  17. How do you know who is negging who? So how do you know it is/are not a non supporter(s) of Trump that are not doing the negging? You don't and you have been ousted just as the sun came up. To quote the Game of Thrones, you know nothing.
  18. The following admission is an impeachable offense, an admission in Biden's own words. It is real quid pro quo or as you stated colluding with a foreign government. Prime example of the deepest core of of corruption in our government: This is the corruption Trump was alluding to in his call with Ukraine. Biden just happens to be a POTUS candidate which is why people want to tie this to the collusion with Ukraine and the upcoming 2020 election. If it is corrupt for Trump this is doubly corrupt when Biden did it. Pure and simple, politics aside.
  19. Cite the poll or produce the website it comes from. Don't pull numbers out your bum. Or it didn't happen. Hey guys 567% of Americans breathe. True I saw it in a poll. Can't cite the poll though because no link. /s
