Trump Begins Transition on Global Warming Hoax

Those who did not see this coming are advised to have friends drive them to the nearest optometrist immediately:

In response to a questionnaire sent by scientific organizations, Trump touted some skepticism on the issue of global warming. But he also said that the issue of climate change deserves further investigation, which was a surprise. …

In the past, he has called climate change a “hoax” created by the Chinese, but he also has said he supports local bans on fracking.

“Perhaps we should be focused on developing energy sources and power production that alleviates the need for dependence on fossil fuels,” said Trump in answering the questionnaire.

This objective is normally pursued by pouring our money into boondoggles like Solyndra.

Given that the USA is blessed with bountiful fossil fuel resources, there are few compelling reasons to do this for those who understand the anthropogenic global warming crisis to be a hoax.

The purpose of this hoax is to increase the scope, power, and centralization of government. If Trump ever makes it to the White House, he will back it to the hilt, no matter what convenient lies he may have told gullible supporters.

On a tip from Torcer.



  • You do realize, Dave, that he is trying to get votes from Dems and libs as well as Republicans and conservatives, something previous GOP candidates have failed to do. He is playing them, like he did the media on the birther issue. It’s a stupid ploy for NeverTrumpers to point to this and say, “See! See! He’s really a lib!”, when we know that Hillary will gladly destroy the economy and capitalism itself to save the planet from a fictitious boogyman.

    Why can’t you focus on the evils that a Hillary presidency will present? After all, it is either him or her. Which do you want?

  • TrojanMan

    “He is playing them” If you think he is playing them how can you be so sure he isn’t also playing you?

  • NotKennedy

    I’d like to see smaller scale nuclear power generation, at the municipal level. If they can run submarines and aircraft carriers with nuclear power generators, they can scale them to size.

    Otherwise, the cult of climate has only one precept and that precept is ONLY socialist economic policies of redistribution.

    I’d sooner burn tires than believe a single word that comes from the mouth of a climate “scientist”.

  • So what? Does that make him worse than Hillary? At least he has the intelligence and common sense to change his position when he learns more about the issue. Hillary is a rigid leftist ideologue. When she lies, you know it will not be in your favor. Trump is not a true conservative, but he is a hellava lot better than the alternative. Was Hillary endorsed by the NRA? Does she have a conservative VP? Was she endorsed by the biggest US police union? Did she promise to enforce immigration laws? Does she want to limit Syrian refugees? Has she been endorsed by 88 retired generals and admirals and 14 medal of honor recipients? What is it that makes this such a difficult choice, other than sour grapes that your GOP candidate didn’t win?

    Dude you very AND the environmental whack jobs are getting Rick Rolled just like he did to the media today. Are you really that so self consumed by your Trump Derangement Syndrome?

  • God Emperor Trump

    Grasping for straws much, Dave?

  • Trump is going to win. Face the fact and don’t be on the leftist losing side. Your conservative credibility is at stake. Those who have trashed him in favor of Hillary are pathetic self-destructive conservative purists who are whining sore losers that their candidate didn’t win.

    The guy is a genius. How else do you explain how he won the GOP nomination and just played the leftist media for all it’s worth? He calls a press conference to announce that he is going to talk about “birtherism”. The press salivates that they are going to get him to say something stupid. Instead, he parades a host of generals and metal of honor recepients endorsing him. He rightfullly blames the initiation of birtherism on Hillary, and walks off the stage. It’s a free hour of political message in front of every news outlet. Who else couold have done that?

  • Grumpy Cat

    Cut him some slack! He’s just posting exactly what the DNC memo contains.

  • Grumpy Cat

    No, but they hacked Torcer’s mind.

  • Grumpy Cat

    You fools on the left are pretty desperate. Plan on kneeling down when they play the anthem for a newly inaugurated President Trump?

  • They will only kneel before queen Hillary.

  • Grumpy Cat

    Watch #NeverTrumpers to march lockstep with the left on Inauguration Day. That’s when they will no longer be afraid to admit their true intentions.

  • Grumpy Cat

    They already have. And kissed her cottage cheese fat rump.

  • Grumpy Cat

    7.62 IQ will now challenge you to a duel with .50 caliber automatic weapons.

  • I have enjoyed Moonbattery over the years and its support of the conservative cause. I am hating to see it become a pro-Hillary site.

  • Nobama

    I thought the exact same thing. It’s extremely possible Trump is playing them on the whole global warming nonsense. He’s well-documented in calling it a hoax over the years and I doubt he has changed his mind.

    Notice how vague his answer was. That was perfect IMO. Don’t give them ANYTHING right now that can be used against him. The media is so determined right now to bring him down and want nothing more than to scream “birther” or “denier” to get the focus off of Sick Hillary.

  • Nobama

    Amen. Amen. Amen.

    I’d vote this up a thousand times if I could.

  • Nobama

    That will go down as one of the best moments in political history against the leftist media. It was an amazing site to behold. Beautiful. Simply beautiful. He played them masterfully.

    Compare that to Romney’s pathetic groveling apology over the 47% comment. And you NeverTrumpers still don’t understand why Trump won the Republican nomination??

    Speaking of Romney, he did a complete 180 on global warming, Obamacare and other issues right after he lost the election. But I don’t recall anywhere near the level of vitriol thrown at him on this site for his phony Conservative credentials.

    Oh and don’t bother calling me Trumpster and other childish names. I voted for Cruz ever single chance I’ve had, going back to 2012 (most likely before many of you even knew his name).

  • Nobama

    Wow. I just read Trump’s entire response. It’s entirely different when you read the whole paragraph. It looks like MB has resorted to editing tactics normally employed by the leftist media.

    Donald Trump (R): There is still much that needs to be investigated in the field of “climate change.” Perhaps the best use of our limited financial resources should be in dealing with making sure that every person in the world has clean water. Perhaps we should focus on eliminating lingering diseases around the world like malaria. Perhaps we should focus on efforts to increase food production to keep pace with an ever-growing world population. Perhaps we should be focused on developing energy sources and power production that alleviates the need for dependence on fossil fuels. We must decide on how best to proceed so that we can make lives better, safer and more prosperous.

  • Nobama

    Thanks for posting Trump’s ENTIRE response, instead of some stripped-down, distorted version of it.

    This article reminds me of the editing of George Zimmerman’s 911 call by NBC. What has become of Moonbattery?

  • Occam’s Stubble

    The counter-argument goes like this: Hillary will be a disaster but she won’t be the end of conservatism. If Trump wins, the entire party will move to the left since that’s apparently where you win. Forget trying to sell conservatism to the other side of the aisle. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

  • TrojanMan

    Typical Trumpite. Not licking trumps ass = pro-hillary? Please reference ONE pro hillary article on this site.

  • Convincing conservatives not to vote for Trump = support for Hillary. No other way to look at it.

  • TrojanMan

    I am awaiting your pro hillary reference on this site.

  • Read my previous message.

    The purpose of Commie global warming crime is to destroy our economy, steal $Trillions, decimate capitalism, establish a communist economic model. Theft of $100 Billion a year from U.S. was arranged in Paris. An agreement the Kenyan is illegally binding us to without consent from the Senate. He’s already stolen a $Billion in two $500M increments as payment to the UN per paris crime. http://www.investors.com/politics/editorials/climate-change-scare-tool-to-destroy-capitalism/

  • jack burns

    They are typical of the bitter, whacked #nevertrumpers. I suspect that the deepest instinctual drive of that bunch is to protect cheap labor. That and conjoined with some ego need to feel special in some way as in they are always telling us that they are not sure how they will vote, like we’re hanging on to the suspense. Its gotten to be downright peculiar.

    Hey tRumpity,

    Offer accepted . . .

  • 762×51

    No other way to look at it, unless you have an IQ above 70.

    MB didn’t support GOP Progressive nominee “Mittens” Romney in 2012 OR GOP Progressive nominee John McCain in 2008. Why would it support GOP Progressive tRump in 2016? Those of us who have been here that long and longer remember it well and there was NEVER this kind of BS over those candidates.

    The solution here is not to try and force Conservatives to vote for a Progressive, we will not do it. It is to stop nominating Progressives and expecting us to vote for them. If you want to vote for a Progressive, join the Democrat Party.

  • 762×51

    Why? All you Trumpanzee vermin are cowards, I have proven it repeatedly, especially you Dumpy Rat.

  • 762×51

    Want to bet?

    Still waiting for any of you tRump ass suckers to try and make me. You up for it?

  • 762×51

    So your master plan is to beat the Progressives by becoming a Progressive. By that “reasoning” we could have defeated the Nazis by becoming Nazis, or defeated the Soviet’s by becoming Communists.

    There may be a flaw in your plan.

  • 762×51

    You know these assholes, “the enemy of my friend is the friend of my enemy” is all the sophistication they can muster.

    They plan to defeat Hillary by electing her donor and fellow Soros collaborator, tRump, in effect defeating the enemy by becoming that enemy. Seems flawed somehow.

  • 762×51

    Torcer lives in your head. ROTFLMAO!!

  • Torcer

    Sorry to break it to you but since YOU are the one supporting a man moving to the left, that means you are also moving to the left.

    Think that over please…

  • Anyone who starts their argument with a stupid insult is a Progressive. That’s the only ammo they have. If the idea is not to vote for either candidate as a protest, it obviously will fail. Nobody cares if you voted or not. What value are you adding by running hit pieces on the Republican candidate on a “conservative” (I’m not so sure anymore) blog, if not to dissuade conservatives from voting for Trump? If conservatives do not support Trump, Hillary wins. Ergo, this site is effectively assisting Hillary to win the election.

    Forget it. I’m tired of this circular argument. Trying to convince a NeverTrumper that they are de facto Hillary supporters is like trying to convince a leftist that I have a right to own a gun. In fact it is EXACTLY like arguing with a brain-dead leftist.

  • So your argument is that we should let the Dem radical leftist candidate win? Think that over please…

  • Torcer

    Try again without the Strawman arguments.

  • Your strawman is much bigger than mine.

    Please cite with an excerpt where I supposedly stated that.

    Strawman Definition
    A fallacy in which an opponent’s argument is overstated or misrepresented in order to be more easily attacked or refuted.
    http://grammar.about.com/od/rs/g/strawmanterm.htm

    Where did I supposedly do that with YOUR argument?

  • Moonbattery says Vote for Hillary! Let’s teach those stupid conservatives who got Trump nominated a lesson they will never forget!

  • You did it with your initial argument, i.e., Trump is moving to the left (overstated), so Trump supporters are moving to the left (misrepresented). the whole argument is based on your own suppositions and biases to try to prove a fallacious point.

  • Try to think logically. This is nearly impossible for a leftist, so this is a test. If you are trying to convince people not to vote for Trump because he is moving to the left, and they all listen to you and not vote for Trump, who do you suppose will win the election? I’ll give you a clue. Not Gary Johnson or Jill Stein. It will be the candidate who we know is a radical leftist.

  • 762×51

    Sounds like a plan. I know the perfect place, bring your M2 and let’s get this party started.

  • My conservative creds are indesputable. Look at my blog that I have had for eight years. Read the nearly 100 articles I have written for American Thinker. What are your creds, prog? How are things at HuffPo? Bring it on, asshole.

  • I think a Hillary win might be the end of conservative power.

  • 762×51

    News flash, your “conservative creds” consist or support for a Progressive presidential candidate. Those aren’t “conservative creds”, they are GOP creds”, dumbass.

    AM Thinker, BFD.

    I intend to “bring it on”, as you say, but all you chickenshit Trumpanzees do is talk a mighty game then chickenshit out when the time comes.

    It has been clear for a very long time now that America is headed into another civil war. In fact, with the Nov. election between a Progressive and a Progressive, it is now inevitable. I’m ready to get it started so we can dispatch you phony fucktards and get on with rebuilding America. The game is called “You Bet Your Life” and is a variation on the only way you vermin can impose your fascism, by violence. I’m looking for just ONE Trumpanzee that isn’t a sniveling coward.

    So here I am, punk, ready to take this into the real world, do you have what it takes to stand up for what you believe in? Are you willing to bet your life on it? Or are you just another puffed up maggot who can’t back up what they say? Come on asshole, let’s see you get out of your moms basement for a change.

  • I ‘m sorry, I don’t argue with cowards or children. You don’t even have the decency to show your Discus comment history or your profile. So brave you are to shout insults from the shadows. I’d say you are a paid troll, but I doubt anyone would pay you for your inane comments. As I said, I have been a recognized conservative commentator, writer and cartoonist for over seven years. You are nothing. You are not worth my time. Goodbye.

  • 762×51

    Yep, another Trumpanzee chicken shit.

    Just like the rest of them.
