As we predicted earlier this morning (see the last sentence of this post), President Trump has just cited the arctic weather, which has brought minus 40 degree temps to portions of the Midwest and New England, to troll environmentalists over Twitter.
“In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!”
Of course, the “zoomed out” view of the world looks slightly different..
For those who missed it, here is our update on the severe winter chill plaguing cities from Wyoming to Maine posted earlier this morning:
For those fortunate enough to be spending the holidays somewhere in the southern portion of the United States, it may be difficult to envision just how brutal the recent blast of arctic weather has been for folks living anywhere from Wyoming to Maine. As Weather.com notes this morning, mind-numbing temperatures, which have plunged to nearly -40 degrees in certain cities, are smashing 100-year-old records all across the country.
Flint, Michigan, set an all-time December record low temperature of 17 degrees below zero on Thursday morning. Records in that location date back to 1921.
Watertown, New York, fell to minus 32 Thursday morning, which shattered its daily record for Dec. 28 of minus 23. Daily record lows for Dec. 28 were also tied Thursday morning in Toledo, Ohio (minus 8), and Paducah, Kentucky (10 degrees).
Wednesday morning, International Falls, Minnesota, set a new daily record low when temperatures plummeted to minus 36; the previous record was minus 32. It was even colder in Embarrass, Minnesota, and Cotton, Minnesota, where morning lows were 40 below zero and minus 41, respectively.
Detroit tied its daily record low of 4 below zero on Wednesday, and Alpena, Michigan, also tied its daily record low of minus 16. Additional daily record lows were set in Lincoln, Nebraska (17 below zero), and Norfolk, Nebraska (minus 15).
And, as if battling the cold weather and mountains of snow weren’t bad enough, residents of New England are likely to get a bit of a shock when they open their gas bills next month as the surge in Nat Gas demand has already sent prices surging ~300%
Unfortunately, conditions are not expected to get any better with the National Weather Service warning residents of New England to continue to expect wind chills of minus 20-40 degrees for the next couple of days.
Meanwhile, folks planning to ring in the New Year in New York’s Times Square may want to consider getting plastered from the comfort of a heated bar instead as temps are expected to remain around -5 degrees through the weekend. Per AccuWeather:
Brutally cold weather will soon be refreshed as another bout of arctic air dives through the United States.
The new frigid blast will make its way from the northern Plains to the eastern and southern U.S. Sunday into Monday.
Although arctic air is expected to ease later in the week, any relief will be minimal and short lived.
Temperatures in Minneapolis are forecast to fail to exceed zero F over the weekend.
“Bitterly cold arctic air will settle in across a large swath of the U.S. as we turn the calendar from 2017 to 2018,” said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Dan Pydynowski.
“People will really need to bundle up if they are heading out Sunday night for New Year’s Eve celebrations in places like Chicago, for example, where the high will be 15 F on Sunday, around 15 degrees below normal,” he warned.
Cities as far south as Nashville and Little Rock, Arkansas, will experience temperatures over 20 degrees Fahrenheit below average by the end of the weekend, where high temperatures are expected to remain below 30 F.
The shear size of the cold front is also unprecedented with some 200 million Americans facing freezing temperatures.
Meanwhile, as we previewed yesterday (see:Snowmageddon Dumps Record 60 Inches Of Snow On Erie, PA; “Declaration Of Disaster”), Erie, Pennsylvania, has now officially recorded more snow in the month of December (102.1 inches) than it averages over an entire ‘typical’ winter season (101 inches). Per The Weather Channel:
This prolific event shattered all previous multi-day snowfall records in Erie dating to 1893, according to the National Weather Service office in Cleveland, including:
Two-day snowfall: 26.7 inches (Nov. 24-25, 1950; the “Great Appalachian Storm”)
Three-day snowfall: 30.2 inches (Dec. 29-31, 2002)
Seven-day snowfall: 39.8 inches (Dec. 27, 2001 – Jan. 2, 2002)
13-day snowfall: 52.8 inches (Dec. 31, 1998 – Jan. 12, 1999)
That’s not a misprint. Erie picked up more snow in less than 36 hours in this event than its previous 13-day snowstorm record.
Needless to say, the 102.1 inches of snow so far in December, through Wednesday, is the city’s snowiest single month on record, crushing the previous record of 66.9 inches in December 1989. This is also more snow in one month than Erie averages in an entire winter season – 101 inches.
Trump judges…….The Purge!
I’d rather be judged by 12 than carried by six.
That great lyric from Ice Cube has more bite and meaning in the run up to the 2020 election. Now we have the investigation of the investigators. The Mueller investigation and everything it has encompassed is now being scrutinized. We are finally looking at indictments and guilty pleas from the corrupt cabal that tried to bring down, frame, jail and impeach a duly elected, INNOCENT president and anyone in his sphere. Getting to the point of investigating the investigators has been a long hard slog.
We did not foresee how really deep and treacherous the swamp really was. You could investigate, indict and try someone like a Hillary Clinton for example, and someone of authority in that chain is a corrupt actor from the Deep State and you will then see the guilty party skate free. Or you can have a completely innocent Mike Flynn, Roger Stone, George Papodopoulos railroaded by a corrupt judge. The Michael Flynn case is the most glaring. The DOJ has dropped the case and charges against him and in an unprecedented move the judge does not drop the case, he extends it as if he is the prosecutor.
So there is a light at the end of the tunnel my friends. Donald Trump has been appointing a record number of federal judges. This is a brilliant move and somewhat frustrating and time consuming. But there is a method to the madness. Why investigate, indict and try just for a Deep State judge to let the guilty party walk free? Donald Trump has appointed over 300 judges and counting. More will be appointed to the bench and now there is a more likely chance when the guilty parties are tried, there will be justice. So there is a silver lining in this swamp covered cloud.

The reckoning of the fake news media.
Karma, the sweet smell of poetic justice, the bully gets punched in the nose in the end! Fake news finally gets counted out and David to the Goliath is a teenager named Nicholas Sandmann the MAGA hat wearing unassuming media slayer.
Nicholas Sandmann and his legal team has announced a settlement with The Washington Post on their $250 Million dollar suit. This comes also on the heels of the multi-million dollar suit against CNN. They have stated 2 down and six to go. Here is their list:
NBC, CBS, ABC, NYT, Gannett, Rolling Stones.
Many have tried to get the media companies to report fairly but even Billionaire hardball players like Donald Trump are impotent against the media smear machines. Politicians, celebrities and any adults in the public realm have diminished rights when it comes to defending their reputation against lies and attacks from media behemoths. This is a sad state of affairs and what’s lead to the monumental rise of fake propaganda news.
In steps Nicholas Sandmann who was wrongly accused by many media outlets when the story broke of belligerent teens harassing a Native American man beating a drum in a rally. There were duel rallies in the area. Since the teen was wearing a MAGA hat the news media or better yet fake news media went into overdrive bashing the kids. When the whole video was viewed any honest person could see the kids did nothing wrong in the whole confrontation. But this blatant truth means nothing to fake news. They hate Trump so lies are okay as long as it hurts their intended target. Nicholas Sandmann is a normal American well behaved teen. With him being a teen or minor the laws give him protections not afforded a public figure. So he could aggressively defend himself with a good legal team. Now truth and justice has a chance to rule and not the mob rule of the left. If this could happen more often we would have a more honest press. But we know they have financial donors and backers that pay them to spread these lies so we will have to see what is coming down the pike in hopes there will be more honesty in reporting. But don’t hold your breathe.

Should the media and politicians be held responsible for fraudulent hydroxychloroquine reports?
Saying a drug that clearly works, doesn’t work is Trump Derangement Syndrome beyond comprehension.
The Lancet Study on Hydroxychloroquine was fraught with errors and incomplete data. It was thrown together to let the world know that hydroxychloroquine doesn’t work. Well that study was retracted. A Henry Ford Health System study found the drug helped patients with COVID-19. Just as the president was saying. Trump mentioned HCQ and the collective mainstream media went into overdrive to prove him wrong. And once again Trump accused of lie of the century turns out to be right. He was clearly right in the beginning. The media said the drug could cause harm if not used correctly. That could also be said about aspirin or any drug.
Taking this derangement one step further was governors making it hard to get HCQ and banning it in some places from use. Now we know in hindsight the drug works and these politicians and media companies as CNN are libel for deaths of Coronavirus patients that died when a life saving drug was readily available in stockpile. Also the governors sending the elderly with COVID-19 into nursing homes with the most vulnerable also caused many unnecessary deaths. Weren’t we told we had to save our grandparents? If we loved them don’t visit them to be safe? So why would governors send COVID-19 patients to nursing homes when they (New York) mainly was provided thousands of empty hospital beds on the navy ship and the convention center?
I have been following these people long enough to know these things are not an accident. Germany and Israel sent the United States millions of tablets of HCQ. They were at the ready and cheap. It’s been used for malaria since the 1960’s so the side effects have been tested, it is safe. Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister was saved with HCQ. Thousands around the world have been saved with this drug. So we must ask the question when will the media and politicians be dragged into a court of law for their negligent reckless reporting?
