It’s a MIRACLE! The Donald!
The longer you stare at it the more it looks like him.
Billionaire climate philanthropist George Soros invested more than $2m (£1.3m) in struggling coal giants Peabody Energy and Arch Coal in recent months, despite having once called the fuel “lethal” to the climate.
Filings with the Securities and Exchange commission show that between April and June this year Soros Fund Management (SFM) bought more than 1m shares in Peabody ($2.25m), the world’s largest private coal company, and 500,000 shares in Arch ($188,000).
The firm, which Soros chairs, bought the large stakes for bargain prices. Peabody and Arch are giants of the US coal sector but have suffered massive declines in recent years, losing more than 98% of their value. SFM made a similar move in 2014 by investing $234.4m in coal and gas company Consol. Those shares were sold off after a few months as gas prices continued to fall.
FUNNY!!!! And just a little bit sad.
Could this be the end of California’s drought?
Forecasters are warning the West Coast could be hit by what may possibly be the strongest El Niño season on record later this year.
Forecasters with the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Prediction Center told reporters Thursday warming ocean waters nearing North and South America could bring some much-needed rain – along with some other potentially hairy weather – to the region in what one climatologist described as a “Godzilla El Niño”.
The drought was blamed on global warming. So if it rains too much what will they blame? Global warming! No matter what happens – it’s global warming. But it will be good news if we get a lot of water. Even if it means flooding.

A woman wore her Fitbit Charge HR during sex and posted the results on Imgur, where the not-so-graphic, graphic has been viewed more than 1.1 million times as of midday on Tuesday.
Her heart-rate peaked (123 beats per minute) at the time that one might expect.
Her average BPM was 109 for the approximately eight minute “fat burn” exercise.
This makes me very interested in getting a fitbit like device. But I would want one that was a smartwatch too. I found this fascinating.
Gov. John Hickenlooper on Tuesday drank a hearty gulp of the Animas River in an effort to highlight that the river has returned to pre-contamination conditions. The governor and his health department director, however, cautioned that residents should not be freely drinking from the river, because the water was unsafe for consumption even before the Environmental Protection Agency released an estimated 3 million gallons of mining wastewater into it.
But the drinking exercise indicated that state officials are more than confident that the river does not pose a toxic risk to humans, as they publicly stated on Tuesday.
“Am I willing to go out there and demonstrate that we’re back to normal?” Hickenlooper asked out loud after The Durango Herald raised the idea with the governor. “Certainly. I’m happy to do that. I’m dead serious.”
Another day, another argument that a flag must come down. Today’s target is a bit surprising — the POW/MIA flag that flies from government buildings, honoring the hundreds of Americans still missing and unaccounted for in Vietnam. Writing in the pages of Newsweek, a very angry Rick Perlstein is simply not having it, declaring, “That damned flag: It’s a shroud. It smothers the complexity, the reality, of what really happened in Vietnam.” In fact, he claims the entire emphasis on American missing and POW’s was nothing but a political trick designed to detract from alleged American deceptions and war crimes.
It’s not common to see a leftist still carrying the torch for the Viet Cong and the NVA, but it’s a useful reminder of the rage that beats within some leftist hearts, a rage that can even take a symbol meant to honor and remind Americans of the undeniable fact that there are — in fact — men who are missing in Vietnam, men we can’t account for an may never be found, and turn it into a symbol of — you guessed it — racism. Never mind that Americans were dying to defend people of the exact same race as the enemies they fought. Never mind that families fly the flag to remind their neighbors of their sacrifice, and our nation flies it to remind citizens of the men of courage who fought a deadly Communist enemy. It’s not a battle flag, nor is it a flag of conquest. It’s a flag of remembrance.
Are we ever going to get past this nonsense? I heard a talk show host yesterday proposing that the term “Democrat” needs to be abandoned because of the democrats long history of racism. Yeah, it’s as stupid as it sounds…or is it?. Can’t these people find something better to do with their lives?
I hope he’s serious but I can’t help to think that anyone who knows me is automatically disqualified as being a serious candidate. But he is in the news. Larry is famous for quite a few things including Creative Commons, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and various clean money campaigns. Here’s a link to a Washington Post article about it. I would definitely vote for Larry if I get the chance to.
Another think about Larry Lessig. In 2008 he was the only person I ever met who knew who Obama was before 2004.
The actress perhaps best known for her role as Laura Ingalls Wilder on the TV series “Little House on the Prairie” is taking a run at Congress.
Melissa Gilbert announced Monday her candidacy to represent Michigan’s 8th congressional district as a Democrat, the seat currently held by Republican Mike Bishop.
Bishop was first elected in 2014 and will be running as the incumbent in 2016.
Michigan’s 8th district includes the state capital, Lansing, and Oakland, Ingham and Livingston counties, where Gilbert and her husband live.
How to turn a Liberal candidate against your cause. Where was security to drag these morons off the stage? Too afraid to offend….LMAO
Hardaway and Richardson appeared on The Hard Line on Newsmax TV earlier this week after they produced another pro-Trump video. Host Ed Berliner asked the duo how they fell out of line with the traditional black female supporters of the Democratic Party and Hardaway said, “Well, listen, we have our own minds and we can no longer be spoon-fed. We can pick up our own forks and eat for ourselves. We have our own minds to think for ourselves. Stop believing everything those Democrats tell you.
If our man Donald Trump gets this, we going Republican, baby!”
They called Trump a “breath of fresh air” during the interview.
“It’s like now we have a leader. We have someone that can lead us, secure that border, bring jobs back to America so people can not only survive, but they can also thrive in this country.”
SILVERTON — Three days after EPA workers triggered a huge blowout at a festering mine in southwestern Colorado, a mustard-colored plume — still fed by 548 gallons leaking per minute — stretched more than 100 miles, spreading contaminants including cadmium, arsenic, copper, lead and zinc.
Environmental Protection Agency regional chief Shaun McGrath on Saturday conceded that federal officials know the levels of the heavy metals in Cement Creek and the Animas River but would not reveal early testing results. “Those data sheets have not been finalized by the scientists,” McGrath said. “As soon as we are able to release them, we will.”
Potentially toxic contaminants had spread as far as a domestic well 60 miles away near Durango, which La Plata County officials said has prompted them to launch a well-testing operation for hundreds of residents. City water and irrigation intake gates were being shut in New Mexico and Navajo Country as the plume, moving at about 5 miles per hour, flowed from the Animas into the San Juan River.
A lawmaker in Huntington Park, California, has prompted outrage in the community after tapping two illegal immigrants to serve as commissioners on city advisory boards.
CBS Los Angeles reported that first-year City Councilman Jhonny Pineda, himself a documented immigrant to the United States, has appointed Francisco Medina to join the city’s health and education commission and Julian Zatarain to sit on the parks and recreation commission. The move makes Huntington Park the first city in the state to appoint illegal immigrants to city commissions.
Pineda, who promised when running for his seat to create more opportunities for illegals, championed the city as one of “opportunity” and “hope.” The appointments were announced at a city council meeting Monday night, after which residents expressed outrage at the decision. “You only want to appoint these specific individuals, only two, because they’re your personal friends that worked on your campaign,” one individual said of Pineda. “Shame on you.”
