Attention all NROers Going to Denver

Don’t forget to buy your carbon offsets:

DENVER – Planners of the Democratic National Convention are limiting the party’s carbon footprint through a unique partnership with an Indian-focused environmental business.
The Democratic National Convention Committee began working with NativeEnergy Inc. this spring to purchase carbon offsets for the dozens of convention staff who are flying, driving and otherwise polluting Denver as they carry out the big event.
Party organizers are now asking that delegates, members of the media and other political officials who will be attending the late August gathering do the same.

And for those going worried about the food, fear not.  The green rules are now “guidelines”:

“Maybe we didn’t do a very good job on the outset,” said Chris Lopez, spokesman for the Denver host committee. “We’ll take criticism for not presenting it well. It’s a guideline. It’s a recommendation. It’s not to say we have lean and green mandates.”
National convention spokeswoman Natalie Wyeth was more blunt with the host group’s early efforts to be healthy.
“I think putting rules in place regarding the colors of food . . . is a bit over the top,” she said. “We’re offering a full range of choices . . . French fries, chicken tenders, and fish and chips.”

Biden Lies Again and Again

Joe Biden is a career liar and he lied some more in the debate, for instance when he dismissed the now well-supported New York Post story about Hunter Biden's business dealing as "a Russian plant." There is zero evidence for this. He offered this line: There are 50 former national intelligence folks who said ... Read More
