Thirteen states -- Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Louisiana, Mississippi, New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia -- have enacted laws to combat what is seen as price gouging in the wake of natural disasters. Price gouging is legally defined as charging 10 to 25 percent more for something than you charged for it during the month before an emergency. Sellers convicted of price gouging face prison terms and fines.
La jueza del tribunal supremo de los Estados Unidos Sonia Sotomayor entró en la quimera de la politiquería a pesar de reconocer que no debía hacerlo durante su gira de promoción de su nuevo libro, ocasión que aprovechó para atacar la respuesta del gobierno federal al huracán María en Puerto Rico y exhortar a los electores latinos a ir a las urnas “para cambiar esta vida de nosotros los latinos”.
In an absurd segment Wednesday afternoon on CNN, political commentator Chris Cillizza and CNN Newsroom host Brooke Baldwin slammed President Trump for not immediately condemning the Saudi Arabia government as akin to “believing” Justice Brett Kavanaugh and climate change skeptics.
Whenever there is unusually cold weather in winter or chilly temps in summer, the more sardonic among us will quip, so much for global warming.Those who believe global warming -- sorry, climate change -- poses an imminent threat and has for decades (huh ...?) invariably reply, that's not climate, that's weather. More accurately, they respond this way ... until the next big hurricane.
As Hurricane Michael smashed into the Florida panhandle, both MSNBC and CNN on Thursday were worried about the really important issue: How to educate the “bizarre” and ignorant Americans who don’t fully adopt the left’s prescriptions for solving global warming. MSNBC journalist Craig Melvin talked to fellow liberal Nicholas Kristof and lectured, “Most sane-thinking people would acknowledge that the intensity of the storms... due in no small part to climate change.”
On Monday morning, several shows on CNN and MSNBC picked up on a United Nations report alleging that the world only has about 10 years to reduce carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere to stave off "dire" and "catastrophic" consequences of global warming.
Between Monday and Tuesday, MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell devoted two segments on her afternoon show to giving an unchallenged forum to environmental activists promoting the preferred liberal view that global warming is caused by humans and is making hurricane seasons worse, as Democratic Governor Jerry Brown appeared on Monday's show and former Vice President Al Gore on Tuesday.
While watching live coverage of President Trump handing out meals to victims of Hurricane Florence in New Bern, North Carolina on Wednesday morning, MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi claimed that the event was “staged.” He was immediately corrected by the reporter on location who doubted that was the case.
MRC President Brent Bozell on Tuesday asked Americans to reach out with love and support to those who are suffering from the disaster of Hurricane Florence. “It’s times like this that Americans always rise to the challenge and rush to help our fellow man.... Rush to help your fellow man. Rush to help your fellow Americans.”
El congresista saliente Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) compareció en la edición más reciente del semanario político Al Punto, de la cadena Univisión, para hablar de temas de inmigración y de la respuesta del gobierno del presidente Donald Trump ante el embate del huracán María sobre Puerto Rico. Pero en el transcurso de anotarse un punto contra el gobierno de Trump, resulta que Gutiérrez difamó a las Fuerzas Armadas de los Estados Unidos.
Retiring Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) went on the most recent edition of Univision's weekly political talker Al Punto, in order to discuss immigration and the Trump administration's response to the devastation that Hurricane Maria wrought upon Puerto Rico. But in the process of scoring a point against the administration, he smeared the United States Armed Forces.
On Saturday morning, CBS and NBC both ran predictable reports arguing that human activity is causing global warming, which is causing hurricanes like Florence to be worse, while those who are skeptical are derided as "climate change deniers." By contrast, global warming skeptic Joe Bastardi appeared on both Friday's Fox News at Night and Thursday's Hannity show on FNC. He argued that, while it is true that climate has always undergone change, past hurricane seasons have actually been worse than those in recent decades, as he doubted that humans are making a significant impact on the climate.
