Global warming: Pay no attention to the Truth behind the curtain

When the facts and figures don’t quite fit the warming narrative they’re intent on pushing, government warmists just selectively present the ones that support their fraudulent position. A recent article at Investors Business Daily provides the latest evidence for their scam: No Global Warming For 58 Years: What The Government Is Hiding ~

NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration seemed eager in January to declare that 2015 was the hottest year on record. But they left out data that tell a somewhat different story.

 
The article goes on to quote Tony Heller at Real Science ~

In their “hottest year ever” press briefing, NOAA included this graph, which stated that they have a 58 year long radiosonde temperature record. But they only showed the last 37 years in the graph […]
 
The earlier data showed as much pre-1979 cooling as the post-1979 warming.
 
I combined the two graphs at the same scale below, and put a horizontal red reference line in, which shows that the earth’s atmosphere has not warmed at all since the late 1950’s ~

 
NASAsScrewyclimatedata 

The omission of this data from the NOAA report, is just their latest attempt to defraud the public. NOAA’s best data shows no warming for 60 years. But it gets worse….

Read the rest HERE.
 

The Investors Business Daily article continues ~

So, what does all this indicate?
 
One, federal agencies have a strong interest in keeping the climate change scare alive. It means more budget and research dollars for them, and it also increases Washington’s power, as the solutions offered to stop global warming are always based on handing more authority to government.
 
Two, it’s really impossible to say what the real global temperature is year to year, given the many different ways to measure it, the problems created by heat islands and the poor placements of weather stations. And there is also the data tampering by government functionaries and academics who are obsessed with proving something that can never be proved.
 
NOAA is not the only government outfit that appears to be trying to conceal the larger truth. It was researchers at Britain’s Climate Research Unit who wanted to “hide the decline” in temperature data, and NASA has been involved, as well, in making “adjustments” to the raw data which might, or might not be, trustworthy. Best to bet on the latter.
 
“This pattern of NASA making the past cooler and the present warmer has occurred repeatedly since NASA became chartered with proving global warming. The past keeps getting colder,” says Real Science.

 
climatecoercion 
But forget the facts. Embrace the delusion. Or face the consequences? ➡ RICO (Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) for government climate deniers? That’s right. The fascistic Left is now starting to call for the prosecution of “deniers.”
 
So, even if the emperor has no clothes, it might be hazardous to your health to point that out.

Is crazy the new normal?

genderneutralhopperAre Americans really so unmoored from reality that we’re willing to let delusional individuals indulge in their various pathologies – at the expense of the rest of society? Apparently so.
 

If we don’t mind this sort of thing:

 

Indiana University Student Charged With Recording Women in Dorm Showers
Cross-dressing man arrested for filming Alabama woman in public bathroom
Man Dressed as Woman Arrested for Spying Into Mall Bathroom Stall, Police Say (VA)
California Man Dressed as Woman Busted for Videoing in Women’s Bathroom
Man secretly videotaped woman, kids in bathroom, authorities say (FL)
Man Strips In Women’s Restroom, Says New Transgender Rules Make It Totally Legal (WA)

 

… then by all means, let’s have gents in the Ladies!

 
Incidentally, this particular deviancy has its own separate category on the porn sites – just do a web search for “voyeurism in bathrooms.” (In fact you can explore a whole new subculture by googling “perverts in bathrooms.” No- don’t!)
 
The question is, why are we being made to believe any of this behavior is normal?! Wouldn’t the more humane thing – if we really cared about these troubled souls – be to get them some help?
 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A male who believes he’s a female – and vice versa – is disordered not “dysgendered,” deserving of our compassion and assistance – not our encouragement. Watch this Steven Crowder interview with Walt Heyer, a former transgender. Very honest and enlightening.

Random links of interest, concern or curiosity from the past week or so, that deserve at least a SHORT mention:

 
‘Progressives’ Demonize Christianity as a Global Menace, Ignoring the Great Progress It Ignited ~ Education, Science, Medicine, Charitable organizations, Music, Architecture… The Left can ONLY transform society by twisting facts and rewriting history.

 
Sheriff Tells House Judiciary Committee: Obama’ Open-Door Immigration Policy Leads To Crime Surge ~ Sadly predictable… intended consequences? ~

Frederick Count (Maryland) Sheriff:
Case by case amnesty, backdoor amnesty, DACA programs, and the Dream Act were pushed through by executive order … Policy shifts by President Obama weakened and ruined Secure Communities, and did not allow action by ICE when Sheriffs and police departments ignored detainers, allowing criminal to be released back on the streets. In effect, criminal aliens that should have been deported have been allowed to remain and commit more serious crimes becoming violent offenders.

Obama has failed miserably at his principle jobs: federal law enforcement and keeping Americans safe from criminals.
 

Robert De Niro speaks candidly about “VAXXED” vaccine documentary, his son, autism ~ (NBC Video) Maybe De Niro’s celebrity status will finally stimulate some national attention in this Big Pharma/Big Brother cover-up.
 
The Muslim Will vs. the Western Way ~ Why the West is losing the fight; willful blindness. Here’s a helpful analogy ~

What if zoos began to maintain that it’s a slanderous stereotype to say that lions by nature prey on zebras? Zoos start introducing lions into zebra enclosures. The inevitable happens: although well fed, some lions continue chasing and mauling zebras. Surely only a great fool would blame the ensuing carnage on lions—who, after all, are merely being lions—while ignoring those who insist on placing lions with zebras in the first place.
 
Similarly, those Western policy makers who continue insisting that Islam is peaceful (despite the overwhelming evidence otherwise), and that Muslim immigration is fine (despite the overwhelming evidence otherwise), are 100% to blame when Muslims terrorize, rape, and kill non-Muslims in the West—that is, when they do what comes natural back home.

 
No One Works in 1 in 5 U.S. Families ~ How much longer before the wagon-riders out-number the pullers?

In 2015, there were 16,060,000 families with no member employed

 
Virginia Gov. McAuliffe to Restore Rights to 200K Felons ~ Democrats have always coveted the felon vote ~

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that the unprecedented move will also allow felons living in Virginia to sit on a jury, serve in elected office, or become a notary. The order will effectively restore the civil rights of both nonviolent and violent felons who have served their time in prison and completed parole.

 

Why Kids and Adults Should Go Barefoot More ~ Now that warmer weather is here again it’s time to kick off your shoes. It’s good for all of you, not just your feet.

 
Sex Offender Led North Carolina LGBT Bathroom Ordinance Efforts ~ Gee, I wonder why the pro-gay agenda progressive media forgot to mention this little detail ~

When the Charlotte, N.C. City Council passed their version of the open-facilities ordinance earlier this year, the Charlotte LGBT Chamber of Commerce led the charge to make it happen.
 
And leading the Charlotte LGBT Chamber of Commerce was convicted sex-offender Chad Sevearance-Turner.
 
The Spartanburg Herald-Journal reported that Chad Sevearance-Turner had been a youth minister at a church in Gaffney, South Carolina. Sevearance-Turner was charged and convicted for “committing or attempting a lewd act upon a child under 16,” after taking advantage of a teenage church member while the child slept.

It’s “Earth Day.” Get ready to suffer needlessly to “save the planet”

It’s all a crock ~
 

 
But it doesn’t matter. The climate change farce is such a genius method to control the sheeple on a global basis, the ruling class can’t possibly let up at this point.
 
Today the United Nations will be celebrating the totalitarian climate agreement they reached in Paris last December with a ceremony at their headquarters in New York City. For the average earthling nothing good will come of it ~ UN-zonesmlr

We’ll all hear of heroic world leaders who joined together in Paris to ensure the planet’s survival.
 
The Obama administration will try to enforce the agreement (which meets all the legal criteria of a treaty though the President chooses not to call it that to evade Senate disapproval) by imposing the Environmental Protection Agency’s controversial “Clean Power Plan” (CPP), which aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from U.S. power plants by 32% by 2030, and other onerous regulations that will drive up utility rates […]
 
A study by scholars at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology found that a policy imposing a CO2 tax or cap-and-trade regime (and the CPP allows states to use either or both) would impose higher costs nationwide. States that currently get more energy from fossil fuels would face smaller increases, and those that currently get less would face larger increases.

 
greenscamquote
And of course those with lower incomes will be hurt the worst ~

Because the poor spend a higher percentage of their incomes on energy in the first place, an increase in energy prices—which implementation of the CPP and the Paris climate agreement would cause—will cause disproportionately heavy harm to them, ironically functioning as if it were a regressive tax.

 
And worldwide, it’s simply cruel (elitist?!) to withhold traditional energy technologies from those in developing nations ~

The (Climate Change) movement imposes the views of mostly wealthy, comfortable Americans and Europeans on mostly poor, desperate Africans, Asians and Latin Americans. It violates these people’s most basic human rights, denying them economic opportunities, the chance for better lives, the right to rid their countries of diseases that were vanquished long ago in Europe and the United States.

Source: “Eco-Imperialism: Green Power Black Death”

 
So there’s no sane reason for we serfs to join in the U.N. celebration today. Rather, we should be holding a national day of mourning over the way so many of us have been duped.

When you have no principles, it’s easy to stand for anything

No wonder the media and Hollywood types love “The Donald,” it’s all an act: Trump team tells GOP he has been ‘projecting an image’ ~

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. (AP) — Donald Trump’s chief lieutenants told skeptical Republican leaders Thursday that the GOP front-runner has been “projecting an image” so far in the 2016 primary season and “the part that he’s been playing is now evolving” in a way that will improve his standing among general election voters.
 
The message, delivered behind closed doors in a private briefing, is part of the campaign’s intensifying effort to convince party leaders Trump will moderate his tone in the coming months to help deliver big electoral gains this fall, despite his contentious ways.
 
Even as his team pressed Trump’s case, he raised fresh concern among some conservatives by speaking against North Carolina’s “bathroom law,” which directs transgender people to use the bathroom that matches the sex on their birth certificates. Trump also came out against the federal government’s plan to replace President Andrew Jackson with the civil-rights figure Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill […]
 
trump&Hilly 
“When he’s out on the stage, when he’s talking about the kinds of things he’s talking about on the stump, he’s projecting an image that’s for that purpose,” Manafort said in a private briefing.
 
“You’ll start to see more depth of the person, the real person. You’ll see a real different guy,” he said.

 
Yippee. I can’t wait.

Top Trump aide lobbied for Pakistani spy front ~ Trump’s new top campaign aide Paul Manafort has a rather unsavory resumé ~

Manafort’s work in the 1990s as a registered lobbyist for the Kashmiri American Council was only one part of a wide-ranging portfolio that, over several decades, included a gallery of controversial foreign clients ranging from Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos and Zaire’s brutal dictator Mobutu Sese Seko to an Angolan rebel leader accused by human rights groups of torture.
 
His role as an adviser to Ukraine’s then prime minister, Viktor Yanukovych, an ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, prompted concerns within the Bush White House that he was undermining U.S. foreign policy. It was considered so politically toxic in 2008 that presidential candidate John McCain nixed plans for Manafort to manage the Republican National Convention — a move that caused a rupture between Manafort and his then business partner, Rick Davis, who at the time was McCain’s campaign manager.

The World’s War on Christendom – Latest Dispatch from the Front

john15-18-20-2
 

101 years ago this week, the Ottoman Turks (last century’s Asia Minor Muslims) rounded up, deported to desert areas and murdered as many as 1,500,000 Armenian Christians. Known – by those of us who prefer historical accuracy – as the Armenian Genocide, this was a tragedy that leftists and present-day Muslims like to pretend never really happened. That way, when fascism starts to rear its ugly head again in the same corner of the world, by the descendants of the last tyrants, maybe no one will notice the similarities…

 
Like, for instance – Turkey’s President Erdogan seizing control of six Christian churches – under the duplicitous pretext of maintaining stability in the civil war-torn southeastern part of the country.
 

And like launching a propaganda campaign demonizing Christians; a favorite tactic of fascists everywhere to foment discord and distrust. (Exactly what the Nazis did to scapegoat the Jews) ~

The spread of common fallacies about the Protestant faith and campaigns targeting their adherents continue to be manipulated by the media, the report said, as well as nationalist and Islamist circles […]
 
Just as 2015 came to a close, the report confirmed that again billboards and banners carrying hate-filled content against Christmas and New Year’s observances appeared, displayed prominently along the streets of some municipalities in Istanbul and various other cities. One particularly ugly banner pictured a grimacing Santa Claus holding a cross, warning against participating in Christian worship in the guise of Christmas festivities.

 
Speaking of Hitler, a few months back Erdogan was openly yearning for the same powers that the German dictator usurped for himself: Turkey’s president says all he wants is same powers as Hitler.
 
Just last week Erdogan held a summit in Istanbul, hosting over 30 heads of state from Muslim countries for the purposes of “Islamic unity” and to…

… showcase its influence in the Muslim world, particularly in lands once controlled by the Ottoman Empire, at the two-day summit of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

 
islamicsummit 
All in keeping with Turkey’s shift from moderate to hardline Islam. A reconstitution of the Ottoman Empire?
 
turkey-persecution-quote
None of the latest news from Turkey bodes well for that nation’s remaining Christian population. Pray for them.

When feelings overrule reality

Astonishing new video from the Family Policy Institute of Washington exposes the complete lack of critical thinking skills on today’s college campus (in this case, the University of Washington). Notice how many times they say “I feel like…” – Every choice, every decision, every opinion is based almost exclusively on feelings ~

 

 
If there is no objective reality why are these young people even wasting their time – not to mention huge amounts of money? And if feelings can override empirical facts what’s the point of learning anything?
 
What’s truly disconcerting, frightening actually, is that they absolutely can’t see the disconnect. If these young people are truly America’s future, in another decade or two, the country will be one giant loony bin…

How much further can this craziness go? Dr. Michael Brown speculates ~

to the social madness that follows.”

Chess champ: “Electing Trump would be a really bad move”

GaryKasparovGary Kasparov is trying to save us from ourselves. Having grown up with under the soul-crushing thumb of authoritarianism in the former Soviet Union, the legendary chess champion feels compelled to warn America that neither socialism nor Donald Trump are the answers to our current woes.
 

In a Sunday NY Daily News article, Kasparov had some words of wisdom for his fellow New Yorkers ~ Trump’s vile New York values: How The Donald represents the worst of a great city. Here are a few excerpts ~

(T)the New York values Trump represents are the very worst kind. He exemplifies the seamy side of New York City – the Ponzi schemers and the Brooklyn Bridge sellers, the gangster traders like Bernie Madoff and the celebrity gangsters like John Gotti — not the hard work and sacrifice that built New York and America […]
 
He stands for fake values and fake value, debt instead of cash, appearance over substance, gold paint instead of the real thing[…]
 
He may have business experience, but unless the United States plans on going bankrupt, it’s experience we don’t need […]
 
Trump’s supporters praise him for his bluntness, for “telling it like it is.” It’s true that his language is startlingly vulgar — one of several traits he shares with his mutual admirer, Russian dictator Vladimir Putin — and it’s easy to find this refreshing after years of politically correct jargon from career politicians.
 
But what is the point of clear phrasing when the thoughts the words represent make no sense at all? What does “telling it like it is” mean when the meaning of “it” changes all the time? […]
 

Unfocused anger makes people vulnerable to political snake-oil salesmen touting simple solutions and utopian outcomes. It opens the door to the aggressively uninformed authoritarianism of Trump as well as to Bernie Sanders and his siren song of socialism. (I’m sorry, Bernie fans, but I lived it, and the failures of capitalism are still better than the successes of socialism.)

 

As I’ve noted before, freedom tends to be more precious than life itself to those who’ve been exposed to totalitarian regimes. For them, the contrast between liberty and oppression is still vividly sharp and clear ~

Every day I have reason to thank Ronald Reagan and the generations of Americans who sacrificed and fought for the freedom of those of us trapped behind the Iron Curtain.
 
Today, 25 years after the fall of the USSR, the American values that won the Cold War are considered nostalgic and corny at best, cruel or imperialistic at worst. The ideals of individual freedom, risk-taking, competition and sacrifice have been supplanted by the fake values of safety, complacency and moral relativism […]

 

Reagan’s America was a shining beacon to those of us living in the unfree world. He brought down the Soviet Union by refusing to concede an inch to Gorbachev. Trump compares himself to Reagan while expressing his admiration for Putin and the brutality of China’s Communist dictatorship. He would abandon the Middle East and Israel and discard NATO and nuclear non-proliferation, making the world, and America, far less secure. America needs leadership that will restore confidence in its allies and fear in its enemies, not the other way around.

 

Kasparov is a bit confused on the immigration issue (conservatives aren’t anti-immigrant, we’re anti-third world invasion and anti-Islamic terrorism) – but exactly right on his analysis of Donald Trump. Read the whole piece HERE, and check out his website.

Post-Obama Recovery?

USwreckage 
Surveying the wreckage caused by Obama’s foreign and domestic ill-conceived policies, Victor Davis Hanson reaches the inevitable conclusion that – if the damage is to be repaired – “The Next President Is Going to Be Hated” ~

Everyone hates the sourpuss who says the party is over. The next president will have to tell the American people that a reckoning is on the horizon—and that it is not going to be pretty.

 
Thanks to profligate spending, government bloat and private sector-killing regulations under Barack Hussein Obama, out national debt is inching ever closer to 20 trillion! If we’re ever going to dig ourselves out of the abyss…

An adult president is going to have to tell the American people that a mandated equality-of-result economy is fossilized, entitlements are insolvent, the debt is unsustainable, interest rates are going up, the medical system is pure chaos, and people have to get over expecting to live off government, not because it is unethical, but because it is untenable.

 
Equally broken is our standing on the international stage. Obama has abdicated America’s moral authority (through his amoral actions) and seriously damaged our position as a world leader. Under his administration, bullies have been encouraged (China, Iran, ISIS, North Korea Turkey, Putin…) and our historical allies (especially Israel) alienated.
 

History in the short term adores appeasers. They pontificate and pose as sober and judicious humanitarians who will do anything to avoid confrontation on their watch, even as they light the fuse of Armageddon for their successors. The restorers of deterrence are always smeared as war-mongers—and only praised as Churchillian largely when they are dead. So it will be for the next president if he or she chooses to stop the decline and restore the American-led postwar order.

 
NerObamasSelfie 

Hanson’s article is an honest assessment of Obama’s shameful legacy. But I’m afraid whoever gains the White House will be more likely to take up fiddle playing and stare mindlessly at the advancing inferno. In other words, the next president is only going to be hated if he’s Ted Cruz.

Saturday Shorts – 4-16-16

sshorts3-31-12

Random links of interest, concern or curiosity from the past week or so, that deserve at least a SHORT mention:

 
Sound the Alarm: New Obama Regulations Will Push Private Retirement Savings Into Government Accounts ~ They’ve blown through all other options, time for the feds to start stealing from we-the-responsible ~

According to an alarming report in the Wall Street Journal, government regulators at the Labor Department will be implementing new rules at the end of the year that will eventually force private retirement investments into government accounts […]
 
Like Obamacare, which made providing private health insurance plans so expensive that major companies dumped employees into the government exchanges, these Obama administration regulations will make retirement savings through private sources so burdensome, it will force employees into government accounts.

 
U.S. Gives 680,000 Green Cards to Migrants from Muslim Nations ~ Don’t worry, I’m sure none of them are potential terrorists (like Mohamed Barry for instance).
 
California Rail Stymied by Lack of “All the Money in the World” ~ Governor Moombeam’s magical money tree has stopped producing? Another lesson on Leftism ~

When your business plan is based on the expectation that people will give you money even though wasted your money, blew through every schedule and projection, and you began building with no actual financial plan, you don’t have a business plan. You have a pipe dream.

 
Why Britain (and Europe) depends on migrants; It’s not about economics. It’s about our snobbish, slobbish culture. Interesting angle, with more than a little truth in it ~

I have conducted a small thought experiment with many people. I ask them to imagine that they are employers who seek an employee to perform work that is not in itself skilled but nevertheless requires certain characteristics, such as punctuality, politeness, willingness to oblige and so forth. The imagined employer has two applicants about whom he knows only two things: their age (shall we say 24) and their nationality. One is British and one is Polish. Which of the applicants does the imagined employer choose? Not a single person to whom I have put this question has ever hesitated for a moment: he chooses the Pole.

Have we totally lost the “Protestant work ethic” here in America as well?
 
Oregon Pro-Life Group Endorses Ted Cruz: “His Record on Pro-Life Issues is Impeccable” ~ Unfortunately, GOP voters are only incidentally pro-life.

 
Bill Nye Wants Climate Change ‘Deniers’ Jailed ~ Bill Nye, the fascist guy ~

Nye even argued that those who hold a position of “extreme doubt” on climate change are adversely affecting his quality of life. Thus, justifying their punishment — according to Nye.
 
Somebody should tell Nye that jailing people who disagree with your beliefs is hardly a position of strength in an argument. Then again, Nye’s ability to make “reasonable arguments” has been suspect of late — he recently suggested that climate change was the cause of the Paris terror attacks. 😯

 
Costly, Broken Wind Turbines Give College Whopping Negative 99.14 Percent Return on Investment ~ More failed green technology ~

“While they have been an excellent teaching tool for students, they have only generated $8,500 in power in their lifetime,” she said. “One of the reasons for the lower than expected energy power is that the turbines often need to be repaired. They are not a good teaching tool if they are not working.”

Let’s hope they learned the most important lesson: present-generation wind power is a huge waste of money and resources.
 
Now here’s an invention that might actually prove worthwhile, while at the same time making highly efficient use of that “evil” carbon dioxide to generate power (The left will hate it of course because it eliminates their vehicle for world-wide wealth redistribution) ~ Desk-Size Turbine Could Power a Town ~

GE Global Research is testing a desk-size turbine that could power a small town of about 10,000 homes. The unit is driven by “supercritical carbon dioxide,” which is in a state that at very high pressure and up to 700 °C exists as neither a liquid nor a gas. After the carbon dioxide passes through the turbine, it’s cooled and then repressurized before returning for another pass.

 
Pay Gap Myths Spread Around Equal Pay Day ~ “Myth” is kind; they’re flat-out lies ~

…the 80 percent figure does not compare people working in the “same job.” Instead, it compares all women and men in Virginia with “a full-time job,” regardless of the job, as even backers of the proposed Paycheck Fairness Act have noted. Different jobs often have very different pay scales for reasons having nothing to do with sexism. On average, male workers have more years of work experience than female workers, who are more likely to leave the workforce to care for children. Moreover, even among full-time workers, males work longer hours, on average, and are more likely to work overtime.[…]
 
Family responsibilities also play a role. Furchtgott-Roth cites a 2005 study that found: “There is no gender gap in wages among men and women with similar family roles.” In addition to being more likely to seek part-time work, women are also more likely to have gaps in their employment history and to enter lower-paying fields, she notes; and “a 2009 report for the Labor Department found that these factors account for most of the pay gap.”

 
Big Sports Benches People of Faith ~ LGBTQ-whatever values are being pushed to such an extent that no dissent will be tolerated. America used to be about religious freedom – not fascism.

The latest collegiate victimology crazes

In his latest video, Bill Whittle exposes “cultural appropriation,” the latest bullying tactic of progressive millennials ~
 

What about everything they’ve “appropriated” from white males?

 
And speaking of insane trends on college campuses, Walter Williams addresses another – the selective renaming craze; if history offends you, rewrite it ~

Stanford students have demanded the renaming of buildings, malls and streets bearing the name of the recently canonized Junipero Serra, an 18th-century Franciscan priest who was often unkind to American Indians. Harvard Law School is getting rid of its seal because it bears the coat of arms of the Royalls, a slave-owning family. This renaming craze is widespread and includes dozens of colleges and universities, including Amherst, Georgetown, Princeton, Yale and the University of California, Berkeley. The students have decided that some politically incorrect people from centuries ago are bad. Other politically incorrect people are not quite so bad if they were at least sometimes liberal; their names can stay.

Mayor de Blasio – Out of touch (with reality)

Latest Ted Cruz campaign ad takes aim at Mayor de Blasio’s warped priorities ~
 

 
Trump on the other hand – although he has since back-pedaled (what’s new?) – had this to say back in October 2013 ~

“I think pretty strongly that he’ll end up being a good mayor, maybe a very good mayor and I don’t think he’s going to want to kill the golden goose,” Trump told an Albany radio station Thursday, according to the New York Daily News […]
 
Trump’s enthusiasm might seem unlikely amid reports that the business and finance sectors of the city worry what a de Blasio tenure might mean for their industries.
 

“I think he’s a smart guy that knows what’s going on really big league and I think he is not going to want to destroy New York,” Trump said. “I think he is going to want to make New York great.”

Hmmmm… make New York great…
