NOT KOOL: Biden Administration Considering Ban on Menthol Flavored Tobacco Products

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.28.21

The Biden administration is considering a ban on menthol-flavored tobacco products in the weeks ahead; claiming the “mint” cigarettes are targeted at younger Americans and specifically children.

“The administration also is poised to say it will seek to ban menthol and other flavors in mass-produced cigars, including small cigars popular with young people, according to administration officials familiar with the situation who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they are not authorized to discuss it publicly,” reports the Washington Post.

“It could be years before such bans would take effect, but the administration’s announcement is likely to be hailed by antismoking organizations as a critical and long-overdue step in curbing tobacco use and improving public health. Despite sharp declines in smoking in recent years, tobacco use remains a leading source of illness and death in the United States and worldwide, especially among people of color,” adds the Post.

“Reports that the Biden administration will ban menthol-flavored cigarettes is a welcome development. Flavored tobacco products are often marketed to young people and minority communities and are a gateway to a lifetime of health problems. They should be removed from the market,” posted Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

ANOTHER NEW DEAL? AOC Introduces Bundle of Progressive Proposals Called ‘A Just Society’

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.25.19

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will soon introduce a new package of legislation titled a “Just Society” in the coming weeks; expanding her already massive ‘Green New Deal’ program to combat climate change.

“Well I think that one of the things we can get done is build popular support in acknowledging how bad the problem already is. In doing so, we can actually begin to fundamentally address those problems,” said AOC during a recent interview.

“So, it’s not an issue of getting more people into federal programs. But if we can acknowledge how many Americans are actually in poverty, I think we can start to address some of the more systemic issues in our economy,” she added.

Original Story: September 24, 2019

Embattled Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her massive federal program to combat climate change this week; hailing ‘Generation Green New Deal’ while saying people have brought the environment “to the brink” of collapse.

“Anything less than a solution on the scale of the crisis is a form of climate denial. It’s time for #GenerationGND,” posted AOC on social media.

“We have brought ourselves to the brink of an unsustainable planet in one generation. And we only have one generation to bring it back… Right now, our entire economy is unsustainable. The inequality in our economy is unsustainable,” narrates Ocasio-Cortez in the video.

A top lawyer in the United Kingdom took his country’s crusade to fight climate change to the next level this week; saying the consumption of meat products could be “banned” like tobacco and other controlled substances.

“Eating meat could be banned like smoking, one of Britain’s foremost barristers has predicted, as he called for the offence of ‘ecocide’ to be introduced to prosecute those who damage the nature on a massive scale,” reports the Telegraph. “Michael Mansfield QC warned that the farming of livestock for meat was destroying the planet and called for legislation to criminalise those who cause global warming and the wilful destruction of wildlife . In a message delivered at the launch of the Vegan Now campaign, which encourages people to stop eating meat and dairy, Mansfield said he had a ‘single message’ to make ecocide a crime.”

“I think when we look at the damage eating meat is doing to the planet it is not preposterous,” he told the crowd.

The official’s comments echo similar claims by European scientists earlier this year; saying humans may have to resort to cannibalism to combat climate change.

CLIMATE CRAZY: UK Official Says ‘Eating Meat Could Be Banned’ Like Tobacco, Calls Diet ‘EcoCide’

A top lawyer in the United Kingdom took his country’s crusade to fight climate change to the next level this week; saying the consumption of meat products could be “banned” like tobacco and other controlled substances.

“Eating meat could be banned like smoking, one of Britain’s foremost barristers has predicted, as he called for the offence of ‘ecocide’ to be introduced to prosecute those who damage the nature on a massive scale,” reports the Telegraph. “Michael Mansfield QC warned that the farming of livestock for meat was destroying the planet and called for legislation to criminalise those who cause global warming and the wilful destruction of wildlife .

“I think when we look at the damage eating meat is doing to the planet it is not preposterous,” he told the crowd.

The official’s comments echo similar claims by European scientists earlier this year; saying humans may have to resort to cannibalism to combat climate change.

“Stockholm School of Economics professor and researcher Magnus Soderlund reportedly said he believes eating human meat, derived from dead bodies, might be able to help save the human race if only a world society were to ‘awaken the idea,’” reports the New York Post.

“At a summit for food of the future (the climate-ravaged future) called Gastro Summit, in Stockholm on Sept. 3 to 4, a professor held a PowerPoint presentation asserting that we must ‘awaken the idea’ of eating human flesh in the future, as a way of combating the effects of climate change,” adds the Epoch Times.

The scientist’s unusual dietary suggestion comes days after presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg likened humanity’s fight against climate change to the Second World War.

Mayor Pete was speaking during CNN’s televised town hall event when he called the fight against global warming the “hardest thing that we will have done in my lifetime.”

“We have to unify the country around this project… This is the hardest thing that we will have done in my lifetime, on par with winning World War 2, perhaps even more challenging than that,” said the Democrat.
