At the recent G-20 conference in Brazil, the European Union nations kept trying to get our
President Trump to reverse his course of taking America out of the Paris climate accords and
sign back on like a good fellow, and do the right thing, help save the planet.
Trump didn’t and he won’t and in fact, he scoffed at the preposterous notion of man-made global
climate change or of imposing onerous taxes on Americans for no logical reason. The whole
scheme is a wealth transfer scam that demands of the wealthy nations of the industrial world to
pony up their ‘fair share’ of financial support for the poorer nations of the world. Mind you,
The United States already has reduced its carbon emissions footprint far below the levels of any
other country in the world, yet we are still held out as the biggest offenders and they wonder
why we won’t comply. I don’t believe Trump is finished yet! Let’s hear from China and India first.
Already the US spends more money on foreign policy matters much of which it seems ends up
in the private bank accounts of petite dictators. It’s not hard to recognize a scam when we see
it. We give them money and they still vote against us in the UN. Their goal, of course, is worldwide
socialism and they expect we should pay for it. We can thank Democrats for that, and
especially that Obama creature. If Democrats are returned to power, we will.
How are silly schemes like the Paris climate accords, where each nation pledges (not promises)
to reduce greenhouse gases get funded? Easy, by each country enforcing compliance through
increased fuel taxes or, really, the taxing of all carbon producing products, i.e.: fossil fuels.
Well, the once popular young President of France, Manny Macron, did just that. He imposed a
carbon tax on motor fuel and set the streets of Paris on fire. At a stroke, he created a massive
civil protest that has turned deadly violent and quickly went viral with citizens setting fires to anything
on the streets of central Paris. “Is Paris Burning?” You bet it is and the Parisians haven’t
had this much fun since the IFF helped drive out the Nazi’s in WW2.
The French riots over the fuel tax have been going on for three weeks now. Why don’t we hear
about it here? Because the Leftist media won’t report on it. These riots have turned deadly and
ABC, NBC, and CNN refuse to mention the cause of the rioting was directly attributable to
Macrons carbon tax They mislead viewers by calling the riots a “simple fuel tax” or, as ABC’s
World News Tonight anchor David Muir, called it, “rising living costs.” ABC gave the story an
informative full twenty-one seconds air time. On NBC’s website it was reported that Macron said
the increased fuel taxes was part of his effort “to combat climate change,”
However, CBS Evening News did reveal the real intentions of Macrons “fuel tax.” Macron was
‘booed’ as he toured the damaged riot areas. Macron had vowed he “wouldn’t back down on his
fuel taxes aimed at cutting carbon emissions,” Well, guess what, he backed down!
I suspect we don’t hear about the French riots because our homegrown Liberals want a carbon
tax like that too, but are now afraid of igniting similar riotous consequences. Democrats must, at
all costs, protect their plans to impose socialism on America. Everybody agrees to clean air and
water. Who can argue against that? But, if imposed, the Climate Agenda will push America’s
middle class into complete penury and the poor will be crushed totally. We wouldn’t even have
enough loose change left in our pockets to buy the ammunition we’ll need to dissuade the
socialist from their evil plans. Embracing carbon taxes is a fools errand. Don’t do it!
Remember, Liberty is the goal, the Constitution is the way, now, go get ‘em! (04Dec18)
Chrysanthemums, also called mums, are sometimes called the Queen of Fall Flowers. They can have
gorgeous flowers each fall and bring a lot of color to the home this time of the year. I have some on my
front steps and they liven up the porch as my annual zinnia are fading. There are several nurseries
around here that grow beautiful mums. Let’s talk about some of the properties of this plant and what
you could do to have mums in your yard.
Mums are a member of the daisy family (Asteraceae). This is one of the biggest families in the plant
kingdom with a wide variety of flowering plants. The mums was first cultivated in the 15 th century B.C. in
China. In the 8 th century A.D. the mum made its way to Japan. They were so popular there that the mum
became the official seal of the emperor. The mum was introduced to the Western world in 1753 by Karl
Linnaeus, a Swedish botanist. Growers from ancient China would probably not recognize modern day
mums due to the breeding that has given them more showy flowers. Chrysanthemum is also the source
for an insecticide called pyrethrum. Because this insecticide is developed from a natural source it is
considered an organic insecticide.
The easiest way to have blooming mums at your house each year will be to buy them in the fall from a
local nursery. However, if you are interested in growing your own mums it is possible. There are many
different varieties available, so talking with a local nursery will help you choose a variety that is
acclimatized to our area. They do best when planted in the spring after the last frost. Planting in the
spring will give them time to develop a root system so that the following winter they will be able to
survive. Well drained soils with full sun are the best for growth. Mums need a slightly acidic soil with a
pH near 6.5.
After planting fertilize mums with 5-10-5 fertilizer. The high phosphorus will assist root growth on
mums. As the mum is growing in the summer pinching the tips of the mum will increase the amount of
branching on the plant. More branching will lead to a fuller plant. Pinch the top half inch to full inch of
the plant to encourage branching. Pinch every four to six weeks until August when the flower buds begin
Mums are relatively easy to take care of, but there are a couple of diseases to look out for. Some of the
most common diseases are powdery mildew, blight, leaf spot, and rust. These diseases are fairly easy to
control either by fungicide applications or removing the infected leaves. Spider mites and aphids can be
pests of mums. They can be controlled by insecticides but good coverage of the plant is necessary to
control these pests. Spider mites and aphids are capable of population explosions in a very short amount
of time, therefore make sure that you completely cover the top and bottom of the leaves when spraying
for these pests.
If you have questions about growing mums please contact your local Extension Office. Or send me an
email at Jacob.Williams@uga.edu.
A Not Unlikely Solution to the North Korea Problem
A time, date and place has been picked for the historic first meeting between a North Korean family oligarch despot and a definitely nonpolitical mover and shaker President of the United States. The world stands back in breathless anticipation. I still think that “Rocketman” will generate an excuse to back out except, he has lost the favor of China. but, we’ll see!
When one views the whole of the Far-East Asian sphere from space, nearly all the countries, especially Communist China, the largest, are enjoying unparalleled economic prosperity, except there sits, nestled among them North Korea, a small squalid little country, a rotten black spot on the earth un-illuminated by either the science of electricity, the ingenuity of invention or any level of prosperity for its starving people; a savage little kingdom that spends any money it gets on the toys of destruction. and exists only by the power of its threats.
One could suppose the only reason for North Korea’s existence is to keep South Korea from being an Island. We know it exists because we can see it from space in the daylight but as the shadows of night envelope the Korean peninsula, the hermit kingdom retreats like a sea worm back into its dark hole of obscurity, save for the occasional nuclear test flash.
North Korea only exists at China’s pleasure. Now they are becoming a nuisance with their nuclear threats to America, their nuclear detonations that have collapsed a mountain and spewed radioactive contamination, and is still contaminating, a large area of Chinese Manchuria, North Korea itself, the aquifers that lie beneath them, and the Yalu River that is now carrying the poisonous contamination to the Sea of Japan.
China does not want a united Korea on its borders, especially one united under the South Korean model. So, what to do? To solve the problem of the petulant Kim Jung Un, once and for all, China should remove Kim and the hierarchy of the North Korean government that supports him and replace it with a Chinese approved North Korean puppet government and allow No. Korea to enter the prosperity sphere enjoyed by all other asian countries and, that quickly, the Kim problem is solved for everyone. China doesn’t need Kim, it needs quite.
What would China ask in return? How badly does China want their problem child on its border neutralized? I suppose they would demand the return of Taiwan for sure, complete hegemony in the South China Sea, both economic and militarily, and a demand the US Fleet stay out of its waters. Naturally, Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Australia, Malaysia & etc. would never agree to that but, those are the cards laid out on the table and they’ll have to be played or negotiated. Trump is the very man for that.
Of course, for successful US policy, the Democrats can never, ever be allowed again to have a seat at that table. If Obama’s foreign policy fiascos are indicative of how a future Democrat government will govern, then it would be a greater danger to the entire world than is Kim.
Obama and Kerry’s Iranian fiasco, their leadership characterized only by back door agreements with Islamist militants, unsupported by any treaty, but agreed upon by a sheepfold of political lackey’s, then Kim and his Ilk, would stay in power forever.
it’s in the Democrats genes to ruin anything that would make America Great Again and doesn’t support inclusion, diversity, multiculturalism, perversion, and etc., etc., & etc.!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Do you remember in the 90’s when former President Bill Clinton announced that the United States. had reached an agreement with North Korea to freeze and dismantle their nuclear weapons program? Do you remember when he told us that this agreement would be good for the U.S. and the entire world? Do you remember when he said North Korea would now fully join the world of peaceful nations? Well… How did that work out?
Do you remember when George W. Bush declared North Korea part of the axis of evil and he said “The United States of America will not permit the world’s most dangerous regimes to threaten us with the world’s most destructive weapons.” North Korea considered Bushes words just short of declaring war.
Do you remember in 2009 when North Korean soldiers detained two American journalist that had crossed over into North Korea from China without a visa? North Korea agreed to the release of the two journalist but only if Former President Bill Clinton would come personally to meet with Kim Jong-il. Three Presidents, three failed attempts to solve the North Korean crisis.
The Trump Administration has warned Kim Jong-un not to launch anymore test ICBMs. Ignoring the United States’ warnings North Korea had a failed attempt Saturday to launch a missile, which exploded on the pad. North Korea showcased their ICBMs during their founders day parade on Saturday. These ICBMs fitted with nuclear warheads could reach Seoul South Korea, Tokyo Japan, and maybe even the west coast of The United States. I feel sure Secretary of Defence, James “Mad-Dog” Mattis, will bring this North Korean nightmare to an end. Which Clinton, Bush and Obama failed to do.
In this segment we also cover the media trying to figure out “the real Donald Trump.” BKP gives his opinion as to why Trump changed his position on China being a currency manipulator and and NATO no longer being obsolete.
Why did the decision to bomb Syria change everything for some Donald Trump loyalist? Many of Trump’s supporters are asking where is the “America First” policy now? In the opening monologue today, #BKP discusses how foreign policy decisions that President Donald Trump has made does not change his domestic policy agenda.
Trump is negotiating at all times whether it be a meeting with the President of China or a CEO summit at The White House. During the campaign, candidate Donald Trump talked about our trade deficit with China along with them devaluing their money. Trump is the first president that had the nerve to tie North Korea and trade together only using 130 characters, called Twitter. #BKP ties together today all the reasons you should not jump off the “Trump Train”. Going from one meeting to the next Trump works 14 – 16 hours a day. He is not just another scenic railroad like Obama; He is a bullet train Trump. So don’t jump now because you could get hurt.
Watch part two of this segment below.
In Friday’s Opening Monologue #BKP talks about the difference in the response concerning Syria using chemical weapons of President Barack Obama and President Donald Trump. In one air strike did Donald Trump return the U.S. to it’s World Leader Status and put ISIS, North Korea, Russia, and China on notice. The American superpower is back!
