Biden: It Is ‘Rational Speculation’ To Suggest ‘Global Warming’ Caused Building Collapse

Published

Joe Biden

During a press conference on Thursday, President Biden said suggestions that “global warming” caused the building collapse in Miami, Florida, are “rational speculation.”

“We don’t have any firm proof of what’s happened,” Biden said. “There are all kinds of rational speculation about whether or not rebars are, were, were rusted, whether or not the cement, whether it’s limestone or not, and whether or not, but a lot of the, a lot of the families who survived talked about how upset they were that in the last years that they’ve been here, how there was one condominium complex built across the street and a road was purchased. And while they were living there, they would hear the drilling, and they feel their building moving and shaking.”

“There are all kinds of discussions about whether or not they thought that water level rising, what impact it had,” he added. “And interesting to me, I didn’t raise it, but how many of the survivors and how many of the families talked about the impact of global warming. How much, and they [don’t] know exactly, [but] they talked about sea levels rising and about how, how they were, and the combination of that and the concern about incoming storms, incoming tropical storms. And so, but I don’t think there is at this point, any definitive judgment as to why it collapsed, and what can be done to prevent it from happening and what other buildings may have to be inspected to determine if they have the same problems.”

The condominium building collapse in Miami last week resulted in at least 18 deaths and 145 more people still missing. The building was built on wetlands, which are vulnerable to subsidence. According to a 2018 engineering report, the building had a “major error” in its design that caused water to pool near its base which would lead to increasing deterioration over time.

The Washington Post reported, “Experts on sea-level rise and climate change caution that it is too soon to speculate whether rising seas helped destabilize the oceanfront structure. The 40-year-old building was relatively new compared with others on its stretch of beach in the town of Surfside.”

    The words Biden and rational should never appear on The same page.
    Let’s see here. Seas are rising at the rate of 0.07-0.10 inch per year. 100 year total: ten inches.
    The sea levels now are not nearly as high as record levels based on years of written and geological evidence.
    So ‘global warming’? NO. Socialist takeover of our energy resources and delivery, transportation, manufacturing, and housing. Don’t believe the hype.

    There is NOTHING “rational” about this theory being thrown out there by a FASCIST LUNATIC !! These Dems blame EVERYTHING on Donald Trump OR Global Warming !!Whichever meets their AGENDA for the day !

    Poor Joe. He isn’t cognizant of what he’s saying any more. I’m surprised his handlers let him comment on anything at all. He needs a cognition test sooner than later. On the other hand, him leaving office would be a total disaster instead of what we’re dealing with now. Harris is even worse.

    It was white supremist that caused the global warming according to Joe.

    If that building fell R/T global warming then the people of south Florida should pack up and leave. There is documentation showing that building started to fail some years ago. Now if that was from global warming then there is not enough mitigation to repair all of south Florida. If you follow Biden’s theory it will soon be a house of cards in south Florida with buildings falling like a bad disaster movie. In other word 1 building does not make it a global event. An entire city that’s from global warming. If that happens it will be futile to have the green new deal, it will be to late.

    I have yet to see a Liberal run anything but into the ground. Just Look at all these cities they have ran for decades.

    So according to Biden people in shock about a massive death toll from a building collapse took time out to tell him it might be climate change. I have a large bridge to sell someone.

    The reality is that the Earth’s climate is changing so slowly that it takes networks of sophisticated sensors, decades to even detect it. We must not mix up weather cycles that are part of the current climate with true climate change. Biden does not know what he is talking about. He should leave the determination to the experts.

    I hope I’m not the only to realize this, but it’s not possible to have “rational speculation.” The two words don’t work together.

    Regardless of global warming any of the observed structural defects would have contributed to the building losing structural stability. It’s possible the vibrations from construction could have contributed additionally to soil subsidence and compaction . Thus causing huge differences in stresses in an already weakened building ?

    I’m not a rocket surgeon or anything….But I would say it was faulty construction

Pelosi’s $115 Million Net Worth Comes Primarily From Big Tech Companies She Regulates

Fancy Nancy makes an awful lot of money for someone who has been a lifelong politician

Nancy Pelosi

United States Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, makes an awful lot of money for someone who has been a lifelong politician. According to the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Glenn Greenwald, Pelosi’s personal wealth has gone from roughly $41 million in 2004 to $115 million currently.

Greenwald’s investigation show Pelosi has made an incredible amount of wealth in the stock market on the Silicon Valley companies she regulates. Nearly 75 percent of Pelosi and her husband’s stock trading in only the last two years has been in Big Tech.

Specifically, the couple has mostly traded Apple, Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook and Google stock, according to publicly available information. In his piece on Substack, Greenwald writes Google is also one of Pelosi’s top donors.

“She works on bills that directly affect the future trajectory of Google. And they lavish her campaign coffers with cash, a key source of her entrenched power” wrote Greenwald. Campaign finance data shows Google is one of her top donors, the very company which she has made millions trading their stock.

There are also reports that Pelosi often holds meetings with CEOs of tech giants the U.S. Congress is supposed to regulate, such as Apple CEO Tim Cook. Apple was roughly 17 percent of Pelosi’s trading volume.

Business Insider reported that when the Biden administration was preparing to enact legislation to benefit electric vehicle companies back in January, Nancy’s husband Paul bought 25 call options on shares in Tesla, Elon Musk’s electric vehicle company.

In March, Paul Pelosi purchased millions worth of Microsoft and Roblox shares in March, reported Fox Business. Conveniently the purchase was made right as Bill Gates’ company “secured a lucrative government contract worth nearly $22 billion to supply U.S. Army combat troops with augmented reality headsets.”

Greenwald says Pelosi is not necessarily doing anything illegal because there is no proof they have acted on non-public information or engaged in insider trading. However, “the ethical stench is obvious” noting “watching Nancy Pelosi’s wealth skyrocket by millions of dollars from trades in the very companies she is directly overseeing creates a sleazy appearance, to put that mildly.”

Doocy Stuns Psaki With Line Of Questioning She Wasn’t Expecting

Published

Jen Psaki

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki about President Biden’s support of the Texas Democrats who fled Texas to block the vote on election security legislation.

“About voting rights and these Texas lawmakers who have come to Washington,” Doocy began, “do you know… of any examples from his 36 years in the Senate that Joe Biden just hopped on a train and left town to avoid a vote that he knew he was going to lose?”

Thinking it was funny, Psaki laughed, and said, “Welcome back.”

“Look,” she continued. “I think that the president’s view is that these Texas legislators were making a statement through action in opposition to efforts in their state to oppose restrictions on people’s fundamental rights and their rights to vote in their state.”

“That is why they departed. The vice president met with these legislators yesterday and the vice pres — and the president, I should say — certainly applauds their actions and their outspoken opposition to efforts to put in place restrictive measures in their state,” she added.
Doocy responded, “And maybe it is funny to think about it that way, but the president is talking about this as the most serious assault on our democracy —”

“I don’t think anything about this is funny,” Psaki said as she held back laughter. “I think what is important to note, though, here is that there are 28 states, including Texas, where there are laws in place or in the process to make it harder to vote and it requires bold action. It requires bold voices to speak out against that and make sure people understand their rights.”

“That’s exactly what’s happening here,” she said.

In Texas, where Democrat former President Lyndon B. Johnson won his 1948 Senate race by stealing the election through voter fraud, there were two bills to be voted on that would expand early voting hours while also putting in place restrictions to prevent voter fraud.  To block the ability for these bills to be voted on, Texas Democrat lawmakers hopped on private jets and left the state.

“Private planes carrying more than 50 Democrats left Austin for Dulles International Airport midafternoon, skipping town just days before the Texas House of Representatives was expected to give early approval to sweeping new voting restrictions in a special legislative session,” The Associated Press reported. “The numbers meant the House would not have enough lawmakers in attendance to conduct business and could not, at least for now, vote on the bill.”
