Greta Thunberg: It’s Strange People Think Of Biden As A Leader

During an interview with the Washington Post on Monday, Far-left activist Greta Thunberg slammed Democrat President Joe Biden, saying it’s “strange that people think of Joe Biden as a leader” on climate issues.

Thunberg, who is known for making alarmist claims about climate change, made the comments when she was asked if she was “inspired by any of the world leaders.”

“If you call him a leader — I mean, it’s strange that people think of Joe Biden as a leader for the climate when you see what his administration is doing,” Thunberg responded.

“The U.S. is actually expanding fossil fuel infrastructure,” she said. “Why is the U.S. doing that? It should not fall on us activists and teenagers who just want to go to school to raise this awareness and to inform people that we are actually facing an emergency.”

“People ask us, ‘What do you want?’ ‘What do you want politicians to do?’ And we say, first of all, we have to actually understand what is the emergency. We are trying to find a solution of a crisis that we don’t understand,” she admitted. “For example, in Sweden, we ignore — we don’t even count or include more than two-thirds of our actual emissions. How can we solve a crisis if we ignore more than two-thirds of it? So it’s all about the narrative. It’s all about, what are we actually trying to solve? Is it this emergency, or is it this emergency?”

Thunberg is known for making doomsday claims about climate change without evidence. For example, in her book “No One Is Too Small To Make A Difference,” Thunberg claims “Around 2030 we will be in a position to set off an irreversible chain reaction beyond human control that will lead to the end of our civilization as we know it.”

Additionally, as noted by the Daily Wire, Thunberg claimed in a 2019 op-ed, “Fossil fuels are literally choking the life from us. That action must be powerful and wide-ranging. After all, the climate crisis is not just about the environment. It is a crisis of human rights, of justice, and of political will. Colonial, racist, and patriarchal systems of oppression have created and fueled it. We need to dismantle them all. Our political leaders can no longer shirk their responsibilities.”

And in a 2019 rant at the United Nations, Thunberg said, “Yet, you all come to us young people for hope, how dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words and yet I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering, people are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth.”

    It’s strange that anyone thinks that child is relevant.

      Agreed, also who exactly thinks of Biden “as a leader” of anything–at best he’s a marionette…

    I am in my late 60s and I have been hearing about the end of everything all my life. First the world would be consumed in an ice age. Then it would be consumed by raging heat. And when the so-called “experts” couldn’t decide which way to go, they punted and said that climate change would destroy us. This sad little girl should learn the virtue of faith. We will find our way out of anything that happens to us. When the moment arrives, the man appears, to lead us to a better way. Have faith and believe, and we can overcome anything that we can create. I pity this child, for she is losing her innocence and her ability to see the wonders of this world, stolen by the Marxist minions who would do anything to assume complete power over us.

      LOLOLOL Yeah, the fact that I live in New York and in the last 2 decades we’ve had more muddy rainy Christmas’s, then white Christmas’s is in no way connected to advanced climate change. LOLOLOL The fact that we now start Winter in February and its done in a little over 2 months is not out of normal as well. Geez bud. Do you even understand what climate change is? Let me put it to ya this way. Why don’t you be the first guy to volunteer to have Musk send you to Mars. You can demonstrate what happens to someone who steps onto a planet with no trees, grass, fresh water, or the atmosphere that contains them. WE have done damage to this planet in roughly 100 years, that took nature a few hundred million to achieve, to bring about The Great Permian Extinction level event. LOLOLOL But, then again, my guess is that science, fact and history probably elude you anyways.

    Actually nobody, including other world leaders, think he’s a leader of anything.

    I don’t know about others thoughts about the Climate KID, but as for me, I’ve seen and heard ENOUGH! Go home kid, get a real life before this one passes you bye!

    It would seem to me that those acolytes who insist on the unchallenged acceptance of the IPCC’s “Anthropogenic Climate Change” theory are forgetting (although I believe “Ignoring” is the more accurate term) the first rule of scientific inquiry, which is to, “Trust, but verify”. (Which was the old Russian proverb Ronald Reagan used to quote.) Don’t forget that Einstein’s Theory of Relativity: E=MC², was recently disproved. Then, even more recently, finally proven. True science, untainted by political and personal gain, is paramount. I suggest reading an interesting little tome: “Unstoppable Global Warming [Every 1,500 Years]” 2nd ed. -S. Fred Singer and Dennis T. Avery. One of the interesting (“Telling”) results of their book, which pulls together scientific studies from many different disciplines from the earth sciences to astrophysical, is that instead of attempting to refute the conclusions of Singer and Avery by disproving the studies they present (that would be the scientific method, would it not?), they have been subjected to personal attacks and vilification by those I’m calling “The Consensatarians”. (Which, I believe, would be the “Secular/Theocratic” method.) If you actually read it from cover to cover and can debate the science, that’s the scientific method. If you can only skim through it and denigrate the personalities of those who’ve done the research, well … it would be obvious as to which side of the equation you belong to.

    What strange is that nobody on the left is upset that they’re parading the little brainwashed autistic girl around like some kind of trained monkey. To regurgitate one of the left’s favorite talking point – ‘what about the children?’

    This is child abuse, plain and simple.

GOP bill proposes extra measures to ensure noncitizens are unable to vote in federal elections

GOP members of both the U.S. House and Senate introduced a bill to add safeguards to ensure that non U.S. citizens who are already prohibited from voting in federal elections, do not do so. The bill seeks to amend the National Voter Registration Act to require documentary proof of United States citizenship to register to vote.

The Center Square reports that It would require states to obtain proof of citizenship – in person – when registering an individual to vote. Applicants would have to provide proof of citizenship when they register to vote in person, when applying for a motor vehicle license, and when applying to vote by mail. The bill lists accepted citizenship documentation and requirements for voter registration agencies.

U.S. Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, led a coalition of 49 Republicans to introduce the Safeguard American Voter Eligibility (SAVE) Act in the U.S. House. U.S. Sen. Mike Lee of Utah, with several cosponsors, introduced the same bill in the Senate.

Citing the border crisis and the greatest number of foreign nationals illegally entering the country in U.S. history, the measure’s supporters expressed alarm that instead of being deported, many are being registered to vote.

“There is currently an unprecedented and a clear and present danger to the integrity of our election system,” House Speaker Mike Johnson said. “And that is the threat of non-citizens and illegal aliens voting in our elections. In the last five and a half months or so, I’ve been to over 101 cities doing events all around the country in more than half the states. The first or second question that I’m asked in every public forum is about election security. Americans are deeply concerned about this. And it doesn’t matter where you live or whether you’re in a blue state or a red state, everyone’s concerned.”

Johnson blamed President Joe Biden and his administration’s policies for for what he described as widespread concern about election integrity.

“… we now have so many non-citizens in the country that if only one out of 100 of those voted, they would cast hundreds of thousands of votes,” the speaker added. “And since our elections are so razor thin in these days that we’re in, just a few precincts in a few states decide the makeup of Congress and who is elected to the White House. This is a dangerously high number, and it’s a great concern to millions and millions of Americans. It could obviously change the outcome of our elections, and this is not an empty threat or concern.”

It is already a federal crime for non-citizens to vote in a federal election. Despite this, Johnson said, “no current mechanism to ensure only those registering or voting are actually citizens. … If a nefarious actor wants to intervene in our elections, all they have to do is check a box on a form and sign their name. That’s it. That’s all that’s required. And there’s a very small chance that illegal would get caught [because] states do not have the election infrastructure in place to confirm what they’ve said.”

Johnson said noncitizens “can simply go to their local welfare office or the DMV and register to vote there,” adding that “states are currently prohibited from asking someone to prove that they’re a citizen when they use the federal voter registration form.”

He also gave examples of “a growing number of localities” that are “blurring the lines for non-citizens by allowing them to vote in municipal local elections.

“You might not know this, but non-citizens are voting,” he warned Americans. “Democrats have expressed a desire to turn on citizens and voters. That’s what this open border has been all about.”

Roy said the proposed SAVE Act “would thwart Democrat efforts to cement one-party rule by upholding and strengthening current law that permits only U.S. citizens to vote in Federal elections.”

Lee said the bill should “pass right away” and unanimously in both houses of Congress. “The only reason to oppose this … would be if you want noncitizens to vote.”

It also would create a new program requiring the Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration to share information with state registration systems. States would be required to identify noncitizens attempting to register to vote by accessing data in DHS’ Systematic Alien Verification for Entitlements program and the SSA’s Social Security Number Verification Service. The information would be compared with data from state agencies that supply state identification cards or driver’s licenses.

The bill also would require states to remove non-citizens from existing voter rolls and increases federal penalties for those who register non-citizens to vote in federal elections.
