…as anarchists and their climate change theology rev up
Headlines blasted economic doom and gloom citing lower numbers of Black Friday sale shoppers in stores, while short-shrifting the fact that on-line sales have burgeoned. The anti-Trump media would like Americans to think the economy is collapsing, when just the opposite is true. Fortune.com reports the stock market has hit19 new highs in 2019.
Americans were reported to have spent a record $4.4 billion online on Thanksgiving Day alone. Nearly half of those purchases were purchased on smartphones, up 19 percent from last year. Online spending for Black Friday is estimated at $7.4 billion this year — which doesn’t reflect the masses of shoppers who shopped in person.
The excellent economic news had no bearing on radical climate change activists such as those associated with eco-protest group Extinction Rebellion (XR) or kept them from inciting disruptions. The aim of the group which claims to have chapters in dozens of countries is to create chaos surrounding their core issue of climate change. The fact that the matter remains up for debate within the scientific community, many unequivocally asserting climate fluctuation is cyclical,* is of no consequence to the disrupters, who have staged public “die ins,” shut down airports, roadways, bridges and shopping centers, while endangering public safety.
Arrests are not an inconvenience for XR activists, rather they are part of the plan, as one of the organizers stated, “Our aim is creating a law and order crisis that the state can no longer really contain.”
Its maniacal tactic is to declare the absolute correctness of unproven issues and use it to create mayhem and social unrest. Their hope is their goal of anarchy will follow.

A strident Swedish teenage climate activist who insulted the President of the United States, encouraged worldwide student school strikes for climate and blasted United Nations representatives with her “How Dare You” speech — threatening, “We will not let you get away with this…we will never forgive you” — has won. It has yet to be explained how she was able to address the United Nations.
The issue has been hijacked by anarchists and a brash teen afflicted with Asperger Syndrome who is the daughter of an opera singer and an actor. She is mysteriously financed and does not appear to attend school — yet she commands international attention as she issues threats and accuses the U.S. and industrialized nations of “stealing my dreams.” Hatred of America, the most generous nation on the planet, is a guaranteed attention grabber.
