Human Rights for Mother Nature
Former “green jobs czar” Van Jones made more controversial headlines this week when he began pushing for legislation that would give Mother Nature the same rights as humans. “Here’s the point I’m making,” an angry Hannity shared, “Van Jones is an avowed communist and a 9-11 truther and now he’s trying to give mother nature the same rights as humans.” Sound crazy? Well the UN doesn’t think so. A year from now a global summit on sustainable development is scheduled to take place in Rio de Janeiro where issues of “global environmental governance” will be a major point of contention. It’s not clear what the purpose or future of this movement is but it’s interesting to see that we still have a long way to go with human rights in most developing countries and yet we’re going to place this on top of those initiatives. Sounds like another opportunity to take from the United States .
President Donald Trump
Donald Trump stops by to tease Sean a bit more on the future of his political ambitions. “I think the biggest problem you’ll face is past positions,” educated Hannity, “For example, you once supported a 14.25 percent tax on individuals making over 10 million dollars and universal health care.” Trump quickly replied, “That was twelve years ago and that tax was a onetime tax to pay off the national debt but the world is different now.” ON the universal health care Trump was quick to dismiss that saying, “At the time that was said we had a very wealthy country but we don’t have that now.” Hannity pressed Trump on his future asking, “If you didn’t receive the Republican nomination would you support whoever does win.” “I would take probably 100% from the Republican Party,” offered Trump, “We have to get rid of Obama because he’s killing this country.”
Bob Beckel and Brent Bozell
Debate President Obama found himself in the center of another religious controversy by visiting Pastor Wallace Smith for Easter service. Remember Pastor Smith? If you remember Pastor Smith, he made headlines with his attacks on talk radio saying, “Now Jim Crow wears blue pin stripes and he doesn’t have to wear white robes anymore because he can wear the protective cover of talk radio or can get a regular news program on Fox.” You can watch these remarks here. Beckel defended President Obama saying, “This wasn’t Obama who said this and he can’t control what the minister would say.” Bozell disagreed saying, “Bob’s absolutely right that we shouldn’t judge Obama but what kind of judgment goes into the decision to go to an Easter service with a pastor like this.” That’s really the point here. While it’s certainly not within President Obama’s responsibility to know what controversial statements a minister might say in a church service, it’s reasonable to assume that controversial ministers like Pastor Smith may make waves.
