“The magic is as wide as a smile and as narrow as a wink, loud as laughter and quiet as a tear, tall as a tale and deep as emotion. So strong, it can lift the spirit. So gentle, it can touch the heart. It is the magic that begins the happily ever after.” – Unknown

Founder of the Weather Channel explains the global warming hoax (Video)

No, he’s not a lobbyist for oil companies, he is John Coleman, an award-winning meteorologist and weatherman with sixty years of experience and founder of the Weather Channel, made a YouTube video about the history of the global warming movement.

Coleman explains that in many scientific communities “the politics had gotten in the way of the science.”

From TPNN:

Now they call it “climate change” instead of global warming, because the warming has stopped, says Coleman, and that $4.7 billion in taxpayer money is funding “bogus reports” and “bogus research.”

Coleman explains that any warming or “climate change” is extremely negligible from a long-term perspective and certainly nothing unusual or alarming, and points out that Antarctic sea ice is close to an all-time high, and the polar bear population is as high as it’s been in recorded history.

When Canada Took a Jab at Russia on Twitter, the Russians Just Had to Respond — Here’s How They Did

Russia and Canada appear to be at war — on Twitter.

On Wednesday, after Ukraine accused Russia of sending soldiers across the Ukrainian border as part of a stealth invasion, Canada sent a message to Russia on Twitter.

“Geography can be tough. Here’s a guide for Russian soldiers who keep getting lost & ‘accidentally’ entering #Ukraine,” the official Canada at NATO Twitter account wrote.

The Tweet, retweeted nearly 30,000 times, included a map showing what is “Russia” and what is “not Russia.”

On Thursday, Russia responded.

The country attached a map showing Crimea as Russian territory, in an effort to help their “Canadian colleagues to catch up with contemporary geography.”

Feds to Run Ads In Border Towns Informing Deported Illegals — They Can Return

According to the settlement, the federal government will advertise on television channels like Univision, ESPN Deportes, MundoFox, El Universal, and the Univision Deportes Network. They will also partner with People en Espanol and even the Mexico National Football Team in addition to placing billboards “in high population Mexican border cities of Tijuana, Tecate and Mexicali, as well as focusing placements near border crossings.”

As part of a legal settlement that will allow some illegal immigrants who deported themselves from Southern California to return to the United States, the federal government has agreed to advertise the settlement on various Mexican and Spanish-language media outlets.

The ACLU filed a class-action lawsuit last year on behalf of eleven illegal immigrants who deported themselves. The settlement reached on Wednesday will only cover “longtime California residents with relatives who are U.S. citizens and… young migrants whose parents brought them into the country illegally” who deported themselves between 2009 and 2013. An ACLU official has indicated that there were nearly 250,000 people who were “deported voluntarily from Southern California between 2009 and 2013? and estimated to the Los Angeles Times that the “number of repatriations could reach into the hundreds or thousands.”
