21 Senate Republicans vote to outsource our air conditioning to the UN – Evidently, many Republicans think we don’t have enough green fascist mandates, the U.N. doesn’t have enough power, and Americans don’t pay enough for an increasingly dwindling supply of appliances that work less effectively than they did 50 years ago. With little fanfare, 17 Republican senators joined every Democrat to advance a treaty that will make air conditioners more expensive.
Air conditioning is one of the greatest inventions of all time and contributes hugely to the amazing quality of life our grandparents developed for us. Naturally, it is on the hit list of the Great Reset transhumanists. One would think at a time of record high electricity costs, Republicans would zealously oppose any new green energy mandate, especially one that is in the form of an international treaty. But every time you think Republicans might finally discover a soul, you must think again. – READ MORE

Washington was initially charged with first-degree rape, first-degree sexual abuse, and forcible touching.
