Saturday Morning News & Notes

Sphere: Related Content

It's cold in the northeast and most of the country. Good snow-making weather though.

Anyway, here's what's new:

-The EPA was created partly because Rachel Carson wrote Silent Spring about DDT being used to kill mosquitoes was harming bald eagle eggs and potentially wiping them out. Ironically, global warmingists have come full circle and have requested a permit to kill eagles to create clean energy:

CHEYENNE — One of the biggest wind energy projects under development in the U.S. got closer Thursday to securing a federal permit to kill a limited number of eagles without penalty.A final plan released by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service would help ensure the Chokecherry-Sierra Madre wind farm in south-central Wyoming doesn’t kill too many bald and golden eagles with its hundreds of spinning turbine blades.
You real can't make this shit up. 
-Does anyone really think this would've been ordered had Hillary won? I'd be really pleased to find out why the Dept. of Homeland Security was trying to hack into the state of Georgia's secured site. Perhaps the man who has been president for 8 years should have been asked why the system is so broken and hasn't been fixed while he served his two terms.
-Well, I guess China is responding to the president of Taiwan calling President-elect Trump:
TAIPEI (Reuters) - Chinese military aircraft on Saturday flew over waterways near Taiwan as part of long-range exercises, Taiwan said, the first such flights since a telephone call between Taiwan's leader and U.S. President-elect Donald Trump irked China.China claims self-ruled Taiwan as its own and has never renounced the use of force to take back what it deems a wayward province.Trump's call with Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen on Dec. 2 was the first between a U.S. president-elect or president and a Taiwan leader since President Jimmy Carter switched diplomatic recognition to China from Taiwan in 1979.
The media will make a big deal of this but this is just saber-rattling. 
-Some asshole electoral college electors have said they would not vote for Trump even though he won their votes fair and square. They are attention whores who should be shamed, tarred and feathered then shamed again. 
-One of the reasons Trump won was because he responded to his critics immediately via social media or in-person. He's bypassed the normal Sunday morning shows and takes his opinions right to the American public. That's scares the hell out of media who see themselves as gate keepers. With Trump they man the gates and he walks through the front door completely ignoring them. This is a great example of Trump being Trump.
