    Trump at Davos

    I did Watch Trump speech live from Davos at the World Economic Forum. (The speech begins about 35 minutes into the video.)

    It was stunning. Dry, almost a monotone, a recitation of economic milestones and achievements. Mostly it was simple. He set out the premises for his record, cited results, and laid an unapologetic case for optimism going forward, a faith in freedom, capitalism, and possibility.

    "I knew we were on the verge of a profound economic resurgence if we did things right. . . . I knew that if we unleashed the potential of our people, if we cut taxes, slashed regulations, . . . fixed broken trade deals and fully tapped American energy, that prosperity would come thundering back at a record speed. And that is exactly what we did and exactly what happened."

    Though delivered flatly, he still decorated it all with his trademark descriptives, "greatest ever," "no one thought possible," etc., the braggadocio that drives his critics insane. But if anyone had such a list to recount, you can bet your bippy they'd be crowing.

    I understand he was to be followed by Greta Thunberg, the angry churl child. I can't blame the delegates for taking a lunch break first.

    "I was not elected to do small things or shy away from big problems.” —Donald Trump.

    "I think you called me a liar on national TV." —Elizabeth Warren. "Well, duh." —Bernie Sanders, shoulda said.

    "The way I see it, there's always, c'mon, there's always money. It's there." —Elizabeth Warren, explaining socialism.

    “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.... We really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” —Saikat Chakrabarti, then AOC's Chief of Staff.

    "We have to stop demonizing people and realize the biggest terror threat in this country is white men, most of them radicalized to the right, and we have to start doing something about them." —CNN's Don Lemon, showing how to stop demonizing people.

    So I'm listening to her harangue (Zerohedge), on the heels of listening to Trump, and I'd ask, Which world would you prefer, Donald Trump's, as outlined this morning, or Greta Thunberg's?

    I read somewhere her net worth is in the millions. Perhaps she’s already in the right field.
    If it pays, it stays

    Both of her parents were already pretty wealthy, IIRC. Mother was a famous cello player or something, and I think father was a chancellor of a university or something. But I have little doubt that she has monetized her silly activism quite well. I think she got something like like €300k for taking a boat across the Atlantic and throwing her poop into the ocean.
    Leftists have unquestionably demonstrated their hatred for due process, and Democrats have undeniably obstructed justice for, and thoroughly victim-shamed and smeared, Karen Monahan.

    Well then, we'll wait and see how much of it she gives away to "save the planet".

    Pish posh. Only other people are supposed to sacrifice to the Global Warming Alarmist Cult.

    From Adam:

    Both of her parents were already pretty wealthy, IIRC. Mother was a famous cello player or something, and I think father was a chancellor of a university or something. But I have little doubt that she has monetized her silly activism quite well. I think she got something like like €300k for taking a boat across the Atlantic and throwing her poop into the ocean.
    Her father is an actor. Her mother was an international opera singer but Greta bullied her into never flying so the 'international' part of her career sort of ended.

    Her parents are well off as these things go.

    Her sister also has severe issues so I assume that costs the family if they are treating the sister. They may not be. Her sister is building a singing career.

    I think all of them have written books of various kinds.
