The 2020 Democratic presidential field is in near unanimous agreement that fracking has to be banned or at least regulated to death over time. It plays well to the party’s base, especially its green fringe. It’s also an endorsement of recession. Joe Biden, currently atop the Democratic primary polls, recently said he would “love to” ban fracking “right now,” and would also “love to make sure we can’t use any oil or gas, period,” reports Common Dreams, a website that caters to leftist and socialist devotees. But the decelerated Delawarean’s plan is to “transition away from” fracking rather than killing it all at once. So put him in the “slow death”

And while they would go about banning fracking they would raise taxes, and start giving free college and free health care, and welfare to illegals, while opening the border. Spending trillions while putting us in a recession. IMO a person would have to have Manchousens's by proxy to vote for a Democrat this year.

Joe and the rest of these democrats don't know a frack tank from a cistern. Someone with limited knowledge is telling them what to say without any understanding at all. That alone should disqualify them from holding office.

FTA - "Just days before Moore’s op-ed was published, Biden said “I never wish for a recession. Period.” But we know that inside, Biden and his Democratic family, as well as the party operatives in the media, would welcome a recession because it would give them the “serious crisis” they so desperately want so that they can expand their raw political power by taking the White House and possibly the Senate." I have been saying for some time now that the dims, China, and the globalists will covertly attempt to crash the stock markets and the world's financial system in 2020 as their scorched earth strategy for defeating the President. Keep an eye on the central banks and Soros.

None of this is news to Conservatives. Dems are the party that can only run on bad times. If things are good, there is no need to "fix" things; no need for dems at all. Dems are the party of "Give us control of EVERYTHING and all your money and we will make things right.". Republicans SHOULD BE the party that says, "Let's get out of the way and let the people solve their problems themselves because they know what matters to themselves and how best to fix it". Obviously there are some problems that transcend personal solutions but many do not. The amazing thing is that so many people still believe in the dems fairy tales. The dems, and their government tools, are spectacularly incompetent and have an extensive record of failure. Even when they do manage to accomplish something it is badly done and costs ten times as much as a private solution. For example, even liking the some of the patient care ideas of BOCare, it failed to deliver complete care and the uncontrolled costs made it unaffordable by people and cost crippling to companies. Completely government administered plans in other countries ration care to keep costs down. It increases human suffering and even leads to death while people wait for care. Government solutions also shrink provider payment to rates that make it undesirable for highly skilled doctors to practice or enter the field of medicine, shrinking their numbers, possibly reducing the skill levels of those who remain, and increasing delays in care. Another example is Social Security and Medicare. People think of them as a success and depend on them. Yet, they have TENS OF TRILLIONS of unfunded liabilities and a reckoning will come due at some point. Benefits will have to be limited and taxes increased. It will become more of a senior welfare program and those who can afford to pay some of their own costs will be shut out. The middle class is already having to pay taxes on Social Security to prop it up. Eventually, people that have other sufficient sources of retirement income will be blocked from benefits. This is a "successful" government program? Of course government glosses over the problems with their solutions and the media whistles past the graveyard. However, none of these problems are unknown to any who wish to learn about them. Dems put up straw man problems, propose unworkable "solutions", and scurry from responsibility of the inevitable failures. Rinse and repeat. Why are so many in America such suckers for their line of baloney?

Banning fracking would put us right back into Middle East dependency and spending trillions more in that region to defend our oil supply. It is a ruinous idea.

Even advertisers in the enemedia have been doing their part. Bay Area financial services companies claim they have strategies to help investors avoid losing in the coming recession... It's a two-pronged attack that sows seeds for a downturn while trying to persuade the public that we already have a downturn, even if the quarterly numbers show a continuing rally.

The year 2020 looks to be a watershed for American power and prestige in the world. In the coming months, both North Korea and China will get a better idea of how far they can push the U.S., be it in different strategic venues: nuclear for Pyongyang’s Kim Jong-un, and primarily economic (for the time being) for Beijing’s Xi Jinping. In the Middle East, however, the answers regarding the nerve of the world’s lone superpower, and consequently the balance of power between Islamic forces, appear to be just around the corner.

Why would House Democrats put forward articles of impeachment that are laughably weak and have no chance of removing President Donald Trump from office? Most of the speculation has been that the impeachment will nevertheless hurt Trump’s reelection chances. There’s another possibility that’s even more insidious. Democratic Party leaders can’t possibly be unaware of the fact that their impeachment case has no merit. Despite the endless talk of bribery, extortion, campaign finance violations and other supposed crimes Trump has committed, not one of the articles of impeachment accuses Trump of breaking any of those laws, or any federal law for that matter.

Top-tier Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, who’s got a good chance of securing the nomination, now finds herself stuck in a pretty embarrassing one. She and Pete Buttigieg in recent days have been playing a tit-for-tat game of who benefited from capitalism more, the youthful South Bend mayor with his lucrative gig at management consulting firm McKinsey & Co., or Warren making nearly $2 million for a string of clients as a corporate lawyer.

The Washington Post editorial Wednesday on the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment report gave the game away. “The Democratic report lacks direct testimony of Mr. Trump confirming the quid pro quo … It also acknowledges ‘unanswered questions’” – and “the speedy referral” of the impeachment inquiry from the intelligence panel to the House Judiciary Committee “smacks of political expediency.” Intel panel chairman Adam Schiff was urged to do some more digging so the committee can “provide a fuller and, to many Americans, more persuasive picture of his guilt,” the Post’s editorial board said under the title, “There’s more to learn” – perhaps the Freudian slip of the year.

Amid falling support for impeachment and worries that it will backfire against Democrats, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff released a 300-page report he says proves that President Donald Trump committed high crimes and misdemeanors worthy of removing him from office. And if you read only the summary, you might think they’ve got the goods. The House impeachment report claims to have “uncovered a months-long effort by President Trump to use the powers of his office to solicit foreign interference on his behalf in the 2020 election.” (You can read the report here.) It says that the “scheme subverted U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine and

The drop in support for impeachment in the polls is increasing pressure on Democrats to strike a deal on the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA). House Democrats have been eager to prove that impeachment is not getting in the way of legislative progress, a point Republicans have repeatedly pressed. For months, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has insisted that House Democrats were working to get consensus on President Trump’s signature trade deal, which would update the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). She has also been adamant that impeachment would not affect USMCA talks, or vice versa, and that the tracks are totally separate.

The political left has long tried to hide its true intentions and character through the use of euphemisms. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has learned to play the game as well as anyone. She has demanded that taxpayer-funded handouts be considered “public goods.” It’s a convenient justification for taking the property of productive Americans and giving it to those who have more political favor. “People like to say, ‘Oh, this is about free stuff,'” the New York Democrat said at a Bronx town hall meeting over the weekend, before Thanksgiving.

Remember when President Barack Obama was running around telling everyone how he’d convinced China to get serious about cutting its carbon dioxide emissions? A new report shows that Obama was easily duped. Over the course of three years, Obama met with Chinese President Xi Jinping to, he said, agree to “climate targets” (in 2014), “lay out additional actions” (in 2015), and sign the Paris Agreement (2016). In typical Obama understatement, he declared that “we may see this as the moment that we finally decided to save our planet.” Of course, anyone who looked at what China was promising could see that it was a sucker’s bet.

On Friday’s show, Carlson blasted Washington “neocons” for wanting to go to war. “Chest beaters like Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska are making the usual warlike noises like they always make,” he said. By all accounts, Soleimani was the world’s most dangerous terrorist, responsible for the deaths of thousands. The number of people shedding tears for the leader of Iran’s infamous Quds Force is very limited, and most assuredly, Carlson was not mourning Soleimani’s death.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., is calling on the Trump administration to immediately brief lawmakers on the U.S. airstrike that killed a top Iranian commander in Iraq and what the White House plans to do next. The strike in Iraq was directed by President Donald Trump and killed Qassem Soleimani, the commander of Iran's secretive Quds Force, the Department of Defense announced Thursday night. The move, which is likely to provoke retaliation from Iran, comes amid heightened tensions between the Trump administration and Tehran over rocket attacks aimed at coalition forces in Iraq. U.S. officials have said those attacks were likely carried out by Iranian-backed militias with links to the Quds Force.

So much for the taunt from Iran’s “supreme leader,” Ayatollah Khamanei, that America “cannot do a damn thing” about Iran’s attack on our embassy in Baghdad. It took President Trump but a day after that jibe to wheel on the Iranians. He launched a drone attack that found and killed the commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard Corps, General Qassim Soleimani. It is likely to mark a turning point in the not-so-quasi war that Iran has been levying against us — and, among others, Israel. This is not a situation in which responsibility is being debated on murky evidence.

The plan, if approved at the church’s worldwide conference in Minneapolis in May, would divide the denomination into two branches: a traditionalist branch that opposes gay marriage and the ordination of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender clergy, and a more tolerant branch that will allow same-sex marriage and LGBT clergy. The split would affect the denomination globally, church leaders said. The United Methodist Church lists more than 13 million members in the United States

The U.S. killing of Qassim Soleimani In Baghdad on Thursday ends an enduring threat. At least in the short term, however, it will unleash Iranian retaliation. The leader of the external action arm of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Soleimani long led that regime's efforts to destroy its enemies and expand its revolution. From an explosive campaign that killed hundreds of U.S. soldiers in Iraq, to supporting Bashar Assad's regime with legions of Shiite fighters and IRGC operatives, to conducting a campaign of bombings and assassinations and intimidation across the world, Soleimani was a master of his very dark arts.

So, just who is this top Iranian general the U.S. just eliminated? For many of us who watch and analyze news out of the Middle East daily, he was the world’s number one bad guy. Qassim Soleimani has been in control of Iran’s Quds Force for more than 20 years. His current greatest hits include helping Bashar al Assad slaughter hundreds of thousands of his own people in the Syrian civil war, stoking the Houthis in Yemen’s civil war, and overseeing the killing of hundreds of Iraqi protesters recently demonstrating against Iranian influence in their country.
