  1. According to Alinsky biographer Sanford Horwitt, U.S. President Barack Obama was influenced by Alinsky and followed in his footsteps as a Chicago-based community organizer. Horwitt asserted that Barack Obama's 2008 presidential campaign was influenced by Alinsky's teachings.[35] Alinsky's influence on Obama has been heavily emphasized by some of his detractors, such as Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck. Historian Thomas Sugrue writes, "as with all conspiracy theories, the Alinsky-Obama link rests on a kernel of truth".[30] For three years in the mid 80s, Obama worked for the Developing Communities Project, which was influenced by Alinsky's work, and he wrote an essay that was collected in a book memorializing Alinsky.[30][36] Newt Gingrich repeatedly stated his opinion that Alinsky was a major influence on Obama during his 2012 presidential campaign, equating Alinsky with "European Socialism", although Alinsky was U.S.-born and was not a Socialist.[37] Gingrich's campaign itself used tactics described by Alinsky's writing.[38]

    yes, climate change is a fact

    U.S. military is far from being environmentally friendly. It has a horrifically destructive record as one of the planet's worst polluters, and it also can lay claim to a heavy, and largely unreported, carbon footprint (it isthe single largest institutional user of fossil fuels in the world). \ In 2013, the Pentagon’s reported fuel consumption amounted to 80 percent of total usage by the federal government. Its use of jet fuel alone produces about 39 million metric tons of CO2.. https://www.coloradoan.com/story/opinion/2018/02/27/opinion-us-military-carbon-footprint/338133002/

    yes, climate change is a fact

    The U.S. Department of Defense remains to be the nation’s and the world’s biggest polluter Did you know that the U.S. Department of Defense is not only America’s but world’s greatest polluter? Yes, this is true. In fact, U.S. Military produces more toxic waste than five of the largest U.S. chemical companies combined! The U.S. Department of Defense has left its toxic legacy throughout the world in the form of depleted uranium, oil, jet fuels, pesticides, defoliants like Agent Orange and lead, among others. U.S. military bases, both domestic and foreign, consistently rank among some of the most polluted places in the world, as perchlorate and other components of jet and rocket fuel contaminate sources of drinking water, aquifers and soil. In addition, the U.S., which has conducted more nuclear weapons tests than all other nations combined, is also responsible for the massive amount of radiation that continues to contaminate many islands in the Pacific Ocean.
