    Nope. Never has been, and probably never will be. That's the thing about you crazies. You think anything you say is true, if you say it enough times.

    Saul Alinsky is the handbook for liberals. That's your playbook. We are not liberals.

    Clean coal projects such as those proposed by the Turnbull government are expected to be endorsed by G20 leaders this week.

    There has been much debate in the lead-up to the Hamburg summit, which starts on Friday, surrounding the final wording of the leaders' communique when it comes to tackling climate change.

    US President Donald Trump had announced his nation would pull out of the Paris climate pact and renegotiate terms, deeming it unfair and job-destroying.

    He is vastly at odds with host leader German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who wants a bold and ambitious statement on climate as well as a reaffirmation of the Paris targets.

    It is understood a working draft of the communique includes a climate action plan with room for clean coal if G20 members so desire.

    Screaming with laughter. From where do these rubes come? G20 agreements are non binding. Member states can do whatever the hell they like.

    Well, I agree that Trump didn't get anything. Some say that is a bad thing. I would disagree.

    However, before we rightly pulled out of the economic disaster masquerading as some kind of climate deal, those in the G20 were saying that they couldn't accomplish lowering alleged greenhouse gases without the United States leading the way in economic oppression of its people. Now it seems, they admit that they can go it alone.

    Sounds like a confession to Me, but if they want to call it a concession, hey, I'll not quibble.
