Remember, why Greenland was so named, the Little Ice Age and the now cooling of the planet. There is more ice in the Arctic than 20 years ago.
Back in the ’70’s, the crazies wanted to spread soot over the Arctic ice out of fear of Global Cooling.

California Dispatches Goats to Eat Brush, Prevent Wildfires

California firefighters are enlisting help from some unusual allies to prevent more deadly wildfires from ripping across the state — goats.

The Ventura County Fire Department is releasing hundreds of goats next week north of Los Angeles to eat dead brush that could become fuel for a fires.

“They’ll eat until we like the way the landscape looks, and then we move them to another area,” Captain Ken VanWig, who oversees the department’s vegetation management program, said in an interview. “They’re very effective.” [snip]

One might think that dispatching the enviro-nazis to do the work of the goats would be more efficacious.
After all there are far more of those Watermelons than goats. It too would give them the chance to actually DO something about the environment.

The glories of Socialism are expressed beautifully in Venezuela. The compassion of the leader for his people couldn’t be more apparent. Makes one wonder why the mass of unwashed  aren’t more appreciative of  Dear Leader’s efforts.

Venezuela: Maduro Denies Military Abandoned Him, Vows to Resist ‘Gringo Empire’

Venezuela’s socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro denied that he had lost control of the military and vowed to use all his power to crush legitimate President Juan Guaidó in his first public address since the latter called for a nationwide uprising on Tuesday.

“We have been facing various modes of aggression and coups d’etat like has never happened before in the history of Venezuela,” Maduro declared, in a speech flanked by his top military commanders. He blamed “the Venezuelan far right, the Colombian oligarchy from Bogotá, and American imperialism” for Guaidó’s moves to finally replace him. [snip]

Guaidó became interim president of Venezuela in January after Maduro claimed the position despite not being democratically elected. Maduro has rejected the legislature’s appointment of Guaidó, refused to leave the presidential palace, and has largely maintained control of the military through his senior henchmen, making it impossible for Guaidó to exercise his power as commander in chief.

Guaidó announced on Tuesday that he had acquired control of a critical mass of the military, but he needed civilians to support the anti-Maduro troops against their superiors. Maduro rejected the call as a “coup” despite his lack of legitimacy in office. [snip]

The latest on the political crisis in Venezuela (all times local):2:20 p.m.

Venezuela’s top court has ordered the arrest of Leopoldo López, an opposition activist who took refuge in the Spanish Embassy after joining an attempt to topple President Nicolás Maduro this week.

The Supreme Tribunal of Justice on Thursday instructed police to detain López for violating terms of his house arrest.

When the military did not heed the call, López and his family sought refuge in the Chilean ambassador’s residence. They later moved to the Spanish Embassy. [snip]

Founding Fathers under attack: Students demand Thomas Jefferson statue removal

Students at Hofstra University protested a statue of Thomas Jefferson on Friday at the second annual event, titled “Jefferson Has Gotta Go!”

The statue has been the center of controversy on the campus and has been defaced with “DECOLONIZE” and “Black Lives Matter” signs and stickers. According to a media advisory sent by the Jefferson Has Gotta Go (JGG) campaign, the protest was held at Hofstra Breslin Hall. Organizers included “students of Hofstra University, staff from Planned Parenthood of Nassau County, and supporters of Hempstead community.”

The group gathered on campus to “expose the culture of bias and discrimination,” as stated in the media advisory, and to demand “the statue of Thomas Jefferson is removed.”

Hofstra College Democrats “want the statue to be removed and [we] stand with the Jefferson Has Gotta Go Campaign,” the group’s president, Brynne Levine, told Campus Reform. {snip]

Former College Democrats executive board member Miranda Pino also professed her support.

“JGG isn’t just about a statue,” she told Campus Reform. “Yes, the removal of the statue is important, but it is about what the statue represents: a legacy of racism and bigotry on college campuses.” {snip]

High school may erase mural of George Washington: ‘traumatizes students’

A Northern California public school district may remove a mural of George Washington from the halls of George Washington High School due to concerns that it’s offensive and demeaning to Native Americans and African-Americans.

The controversy comes after a working group determined the mural, made up of several panels, “traumatizes students and community members.” But advocates for keeping the 83-year-old mural say that removing it ignores the intent of the artist and represents an attempt to erase history. [snip]

Observations

A Liberals’ World

“A liberal’s paradise would be a place where everybody has guaranteed employment, free, comprehensive healthcare, free education, free food, free housing, free clothing, free utilities, and only law enforcement has guns.

And believe it or not, such a place does indeed already exist:

It’s called Prison.”
