Prestonwood Baptist Church in Dallas (Plano), along with the Faith and Freedom Coalition, invited all presidential candidates to participate in a forum at Prestonwood. Six GOPers came. Zero Democrats accepted. Senator Ted Cruz, Rick Santorum, Mike Huckabee, Ben Carson, Jeb Bush and Carly Fiorina spoke to a crowd estimated at 7,000. The event spanned over four hours.

Most reporting on this story singled-out Donald Trump for not attending but did not mention that Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, John Kasich, Lindsey Graham, George Pataki, Bobby Jindal and Chris Christie were absent.
Hillary has had a lot to say about one aspect of ‘Religious Beliefs.’ Christians, those who are “pro-life” must change their pro-life stance to pro-choice. Pro-Life equates to “deep-seated cultural codes.” She has her own way of handling “codes,” by eliminating words […]
Aaron Mair, the president of the Sierra Club testified in a Judicial Sub-Committee hearing chaired by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). The interview was a simple one –– easily understood. To warmists, facts have no bearing –– that’s the understanding among the Left. I have the transcript and the video below, but first offer some background in the global warming hysteria (changed to “climate change” after those heading the warmist stampede admitted there was none.) If you want to bypass the history, skip down to the photo of Senator Cruz.
☛ Forbes February 2013: Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewedOrganization Studies. By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem[…]
“I have such great admiration and empathy for Hillary Clinton…I have great admiration for her because I know what it takes in some small measure to do what she has done. She is obviously incredibly intelligent, focused, tough, determined, empathetic of all the tens of millions of people that she was trying to represent in her quest to become the first woman president of the United States….
And as a woman, I take great pride in the fact that Hillary Clinton ran for president. And I also watched with a lot of empathy as I saw how she was scrutinized, characterized, talked about as a woman…”
Think Progress obtained an audio clip (below) of Fiorina at that time praising Clinton which yet again raises serious questions about Fiorina’s loyalties (well maybe, maybe not but seven years later, one can’t help but wonder):
While I think woman have made great progress in so many ways I also known from personal experience that women in positions of power – particularly bold women – who are trying to drive change as Hillary Clinton must surely is…bold women, women in power are characterized, scrutinized differently than their male counterparts are…”
NOTE: Fiorina was responding to aspersions made against John McCain’s 2008 campaign by Progressives accusing the presidential candidate of sexist attacks against Hillary Clinton.
The intent behind ThinkProgress’ release of the audio was clearly a diversionary tactic intended to dismiss the outcry from Republicans at the time regarding the historically vicious sexist propaganda waged by the Progressive media and establishment against 2008 vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin.
ENTER 2015: while Fiorina’s 2008 compassion and praise of Clinton will not sit well with Conservatives, it provides plenty ammunition for Progressives to use against 2016 Republican party primary candidate should she become the GOP’s candidate of choice.
This is just one of the many reasons to vet Fiorina. Americans have been played far too often as candidates pretend to be that which they are not.
So was Fiorina merely attempting to mollify women or was her overwhelming praise for Hillary Clinton the REAL Carly Fiorina?
Climate Change Advocate:
When asked earlier this year in an interview with Katie Couric “Is manmade global warming a problem?” Fiorina who has bought into the argument that climate change aka global warming exists was evasive in her response.
Even worse, Fiorina’s facts were all wrong.
Emphasizing her belief that the nation “must focus on innovation…we have to make coal cleaner…,” Fiorina failed to acknowledge that there has been no global warming for the past 17 or 18 years.
While Americans can agree with Fiorina that outlawing coal is “self-defeating,” Fiorina does not say how she would achieving clean coal technology. Through more government regulation? What?
In order to invest in clean coal, you need a healthy industry to make those investments, and you also need the federal government to do some of that basic research. There are some very basic things that the federal government could be helpful on. One of the things I always say when we get involved with the topic of climate change is the answer to this is innovation not regulation….
A “healthy industry”. Strong words coming from one who left Hewlett Packard, anything but. Well, the coal industry IS NOT healthy, so what then?
If we were investing in clean coal technology and achieved some level of progress and breakthrough, we could be exporting that technology to China. We could help them solve a problem, but we could also develop a competitive advantage and help our own economy. This is a better, more productive answer than shutting down our own coal plants while the Chinese continue to burn coal at tremendous rates. It destroys our coal mining community, it’s bad for our economy, and it doesn’t allow us to invest in the technology that ultimately could make a difference in climate change by having a positive impact on China’s coal burning industry….

Speaking of which since Republicans have had the House and the Senate since 2014, why have they made no effort to reign in the Obama’s administration destruction of the coal industry (the subject of which will be addressed in a later post) which brings me to the:
As pointed out by Scott Shackford at Reason.com, “Fiorina is benefitting somewhat from having an ‘outsider’ status while holding many of the same positions as ‘insiders’ whom she’s currently beating in the polls.”
Fiorina who insists that she is not part of the establishment has often sided with the Progressive leadership of both parties.
“Fiorina says she wants to throw punches at Clinton on the issues, but how can she when she has sometimes sounded just like Clinton? As Daniel Horowitz writes at Conservative Review, ‘During the 2013 Obamacare funding showdown, Carly ripped into Ted Cruz, echoing the Democrat talking points about the ‘Cruz shutdown.’ She also said she felt bad for John Boehner. If you look at her statement carefully, this runs a lot deeper than the issue of defunding Obamacare….”
With the approval of President Barack Obama, Interior Secretary Sally Jewell has signed a “secretarial order” to officially change the name, the White House and Interior Department announced Sunday. The announcement comes roughly 24 hours before Obama touches down in Anchorage for a whirlwind tour of Alaska.
Talk of the name change has swirled in Alaska this year since the National Park Service officially registered no objection in a congressional hearing in Washington, D.C….
Changing the name of a mountain from Mount McKinley to Dinali while it may appear to non-Alaskans as another nail in the coffin of American history, it is certainly another chapter in Barack Obama’s legacy.
Oh yes and just in time, Obama is arriving today in Alaska, on a three-day strategically choreographed trip during which Alaska’s backdrop and a football will be used as props as Obama announces the name change of Mt. McKinley while spoon-feeding Alaskans his climate change agenda.
…capitalizing on a poignant tableau of melting glaciers, crumbling permafrost and rising sea levels to illustrate the immediacy of an issue he hopes to make a central element of his legacy….
While the Arctic is a fitting backdrop for the president’s call to action, it is also a place where the conflicting threads of his environmental policy collide, and where the bracing public debate over how to address the warming of the planet is particularly animated….
Climate One founder Greg Dalton and the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Christiana Figueres, held a discussion in 2013 on the role of women in fighting Global Warming.
During the interview Secretary Figueres stated, We should ‘“make every effort,’ to reduce the world’s population in an effort to fight Climate Change:
“There is pressure in the system to go toward that; we can definitely change those, right? We can definitely change those numbers,” Figueres said in response. “Really, we should make every effort to change those numbers because we are already, today, already exceeding the planet’s planetary carrying capacity.” she also claimed. “So yes we should do everything possible. But we cannot fall into the very simplistic opinion of saying just by curtailing population then we’ve solved the problem. It is not either/or, it is an and/also.”
+SUBHUMAN Democrats“Anyone who believes in global warming is a hypocrite” I think we realize that “global warming” and climate change are new speak for give me the fruits of your labors and then die somewhere else where I won’t be inconvenienced…
Code words or dog whistles, as some would say, for the agenda to decrease the world’s population:
fundamental transformation sustainable development global warming climate change human depopulation decreasing fertility among humans Agenda 21 Progressivism
Not even a handful of the many words framed as if they are pro-life, well intended and a promise of a better life (or world). The truth is that they are anything but.
