Trump Takes Aim at Green New Deal at CPAC
President Donald Trump delivered a remarkable, often unscripted, two-hour speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference on Saturday in National Harbor, Maryland.
He spent a good portion making fun of the Green New Deal being put forward by Democrat Socialist Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York.
TRUMP: “Democrat lawmakers are now embracing socialism. …Nothing is more extreme than the Democrats’ plan to completely take over American Energy and completely destroy America’s economy through their $100 trillion Green New Deal. (booing)
“Under the Green New Deal – which somebody described as a high school paper written by a poor student, (laughing) it would completely abolish the American oil, natural gas, coal and nuclear power industries of which we are now the leader in the world. Their plan would remove every gas-powered car from American roads. Oh that’s not so bad. They want you to have one car instead of two, and it should be electric.
“This is the craziest plan. And yet I see senators that are there for 20 years – white hair — standing behind this young woman and she’s ranting and raving like a lunatic. (laughing) And these senators ‘Yes, I agree with this.’ I want them to embrace this plan. I want them to sell this plan. I just want to be the Republican who runs against them.” (cheering)

Joe Biden Retracts His Compliment that VP Pence Is “Decent Guy”
On Thursday, former Vice President Joe Biden, who will likely cast his hat into the presidential ring, gave Vice President Mike Pence a compliment in passing at a Forum in Global Leadership at the University of Nebraska-Omaha. He was referring to Pence’s reception at the Munich Security Conference earlier this month.
He simply called him a “decent guy”. And for that, Biden got raked over the coals by the homosexual/transgender activists.
Listen now to what Biden said.
BIDEN: “Our closest ally is Germany. Angela Merkel stood up and excoriated the United States and said, ‘Europe has to think about going it alone because we can’t count on the United States anymore.’ The fact of the matter is that she was followed on by a guy, who’s a decent guy, our Vice President, who stood in front of this group of allies and leaders, and said, ‘I’m here on behalf of President Trump.’ There was dead silence.”
As The Hill.com reported, the comment lit up social media, with critics of Pence demanding that Biden reassess his opinion. Pence’s stance on homosexuality, including opposing homosexual marriage legislation, has earned him strong opponents among the liberal activists.
Cynthia Nixon, a lesbian actress and former New York Democratic gubernatorial candidate, tweeted, “Joe Biden, you’ve just called America’s most anti-LGBT elected leader ‘a decent guy.’ Please consider how this falls on the ears of our community.”
Biden quickly tweeted that he “was making a point in a foreign policy context” at the event, but acknowledged Nixon’s point, writing, “There is nothing decent about being anti-LGBTQ rights, and that includes the vice president.”
Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA, appeared on Fox and Friends on Friday morning.
KIRK: “We conservatives believe that liberals are wrong, but liberals tend to believe that conservatives are bad. The Democrat base believes that conservatives are bad people. Mike Pence, the Vice President, is a decent person. And Vice President Joe Biden, he comes from a different time in American politics where it was okay to say that people were decent. Now the Democrat Party is so angry; the Democrat base is filled with rage that you can no longer say that anyone on the center right is decent whatsoever. I don’t know if Vice President Biden actually wants to engage in that kind of Democrat primary nor do I know if he’ll be successful.”
Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, said, “This is just a taste of what is to come if and when the Left retakes control of government. There is no room in government or public life for people who disagree with the defiant rejection of biblical and historical morality. The Democratic Party has become a puppet of the abortion and LGBT agenda.”
Facebook Insider Documents 1 Billion Users Were “De-Boosted”
Project Veritas has obtained and published documents and presentation materials from a former Facebook insider, showing that 1 billion Facebook users were de-boosted using internal coding.
A former Facebook insider came to Project Veritas.
FACEBOOK INSIDER: “I saw things going on that were very troubling. I knew that something had to be done about it.”
O’KEEFE: “Deboosting is a method of suppressing distribution. This occurs because props such as “share this video” are disabled and interactive notifications are also disabled and the live feed boost, associated with a live streaming video on Facebook, is removed.
Facebook converts live streeds into text and bad words trigger de-boosting. Initially intended to knock off-line those who are ready to commit suicide or harm themselves or block the racist rants of white supremacists using the “n” word, now Facebook is using that same technology to de-boost conservatives and Christians for using words or acronyms like “Mainstream Media” or “MSM.”
FACEBOOK INSIDER: “I saw it on Steven Crowder’s page as well as The Daily Caller’s page.”
That’s a striking contradiction to the claim made by CEO founder Mark Zuckerberg who testified before a congressional committee last year.
ZUCKERBERG: “Our goal is certainly not to engage in political speech. …Overall, I want to provide people with the most voice possible. I don’t want anyone at our company based on the political ideology of the content.”
Exodus 20:16 commands, “You shall not lie.”
Prince Harry & Princess Meghan Will Raise “Gender Fluid” Baby
And finally, a source close to the royal couple told Vanity Fair that Princess Meghan Markle, who is seven months pregnant, was telling guests at her recent New York baby shower that she and Prince Harry would raise their baby in a “fluid” way, reports The Sun.
“She said they plan to raise their child with a fluid approach to gender and they won’t be imposing any stereotypes.”
While it is unknown how strictly they will take their “gender fluid” parenting, the royal couple may decide to avoid dressing their firstborn in typical pink or blue clothes or, on the other end of the spectrum, they could join a small group of parents who are raising ‘theybies’ — children who aren’t identified as a ‘he’ or ‘she’.
Colossians 3:21 warns Prince Harry, “Fathers, do not embitter your children, or they will become discouraged.”
