Who can fail to be attracted to the Tesla? That sleek, silent-running electric vehicle seems more common on the road every day. The introduction of the Model 3 has put this fascinating, tech-heavy brand of car into the same price category as the more expensive nonluxury conventional vehicles. As a result, Tesla can barely build them fast enough to keep up with demand. Nor is Tesla the only make of electric car generating broad interest. Audi, BMW, Chevrolet, Ford, Mazda, Mercedes, Nissan, and other automakers are all expected to come out with new fully electric models in the next year or two. Even so, there are limits to this revolution.

For a state that can't even supply electricity to its residents, how on earth will you provide enough electricity to charge those batteries. 1.89 million cars all sucking off the grid and getting, what, 200 miles per charge.

A total break from fossil fuel vehicles is a pipe dream, especially for California. Nothing but automatic battery-swap stations as numerous as gas stations would be sufficient to make their use practical unless you were a commuter who never took the vehicle X miles away from home. The battery resupply infrastructure would be inefficient and dangerous. The electric grid could not possibly keep up with demand given that it can not keep up now. California's only solution is to get rid of their wooden-headed governor and a mass reeducation of its liberal citizens. Good luck with that.

They’ll have to mine a lot more coal and build more of those coal burning power plants to keep those cars running. How environmentally correct. We have a neighbor who has a Volt and we refer to it as his coal-burning car.

They can't keep the lights on and now want to power your cars. When this results in an unmitigated failure they will proclaim how much worse things would have been has they not saved humanity from global warming. With confidence in the effectiveness of propaganda, they don't see how they can lose. If they react to the spike in demand for electricity there is no way that surge could possibly be served by wind and solar. Something must give and I sincerely hope that the good people will overturn this sprint to the cliff by electing people grounded in reality.

California blackouts! You ain't seen nothing yet! Just wait until fleets of all electric autos plug into the electrical grid to recharge. This, combined with unreliable wind and solar plants should make for major chaos (and sky high electrical bills). The environmentalists will have to buy electricity from neighboring states that still have fossil fuel power plants which only shifts where the pollution is emitted. The environmentalists will then badmouth these neighboring states for the added pollution produced in providing the electricity that they are consuming. And, providing more transmission lines to get this electricity from the plants to the users will consume more resources and power (due to line losses) than if it was produced locally.

Obviously, we can not generate enough electricity to operate electric cars for the state of California, much less for the entire country. The only way to go total electric vehicles would be to restrict driving- IOW, rationing miles driven. On-board computers would communicate with DMV to report that data, and if you fudged on your miles, you get a fine or court summons. How about that for a national nightmare? Your personal requirements would be subjugated to a one-size-fits-all government standard. If you needed more, you could submit your request to a government agency, staffed by environmental bureaucrats, and wait years for a ruling. Good luck!

There is a simple solution to this insanity. The federal government cuts off all federal transportation dollars for highway infrastructure. That includes for any interstate or federal highways, airport improvements for arrivals and departures, funding for any and all safety improvements for any road in the state of California. It would cost them billions. If there's one thing that gets the attention of a money grubbing leftist, it's federal money.

In almost one-third of the days of September, the Biden campaign has called a “lid”—meaning no further events or candidate appearances—by 9 am in the morning. People used to joke that Ronald Reagan was only a 9 to 5 president, with a nap after lunch. (Not true: he was usually answering personal correspondence.) Is Biden going to be an 9 – 1o am president? And has Kamala Harris been put into the witness protection program? She still hasn’t held a press conference or made a major appearance since she was nominated to be Biden’s running mate. Meanwhile, let’s get ready for Justice Barrett!

2Pac lives! Vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris called Tupac Shakur the “best rapper alive” during an interview at the NAACP’s virtual convention Friday — even though the legendary emcee has been dead for more than two decades. “Best rapper alive?” CNN commentator Angela Rye asked the Oakland native. “Tupac,” Harris answered with little hesitation before Rye reminded her that the West Coast icon had passed away long ago. “Not alive, I know, I keep doing that,” Harris said with a laugh.

If this is the most important election in decades, this is its most important moment. Thus far, this campaign has been a referendum on Trump; Tuesday’s debate will be one on Biden. Its outcome depends on which Biden shows up. Like all races with a president seeking re-election, this one has centered on the incumbent. Thanks to a hostile media and Trump’s aggressive use of social media, America has had plenty of material for judgement. Topping it off, 2020 has been an acutely tumultuous year: Beginning with an impeachment trial and now a contentious Supreme Court vacancy — with a pandemic, a recession, and nationwide violence in between.

The FBI has arrested the founder of a Black Lives Matter group in Atlanta on fraud and money laundering charges. Sir Maejor Page, 32, was accused Friday of misappropriating $200,000 in donations he solicited through Facebook on behalf of Black Lives Matter of Greater Atlanta, Fox 5 Atlanta reported Friday. Page was arrested in Toledo and released on bond after appearing before a judge via video. He did not immediately return messages Saturday from Fox News. The Toledo FBI office opened an investigation last year after a cooperating witness submitted a fraud complaint against Page, whose real name is Tyree Conyers-Page, FBI agent Matthew Desorbo said in the complaint.

The Republican National Committee launched a $10 million campaign to promote President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Judge Amy Coney Barrett to “hold Democrats accountable” for what the GOP called their “hypocrisy” on the nomination process to the high court. The initiative, rolled out after the president formally nominated Coney Barrett to the high court on Saturday from the White House Rose Garden, includes a $10 million digital ad campaign, a new website and a get-out-the-vote effort in target states. The RNC said Saturday that the initiative also includes a “massive rapid response operation” to amplify Coney Barrett’s record, while “harnessing voters’ enthusiasm about appointing a constitutionalist”

Sen. Tom Cotton's (R., Ark.) office will operate a campaign-style war room to help Republicans fight back against attacks on President Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court. Cotton's "Supreme Court War Room" was launched Friday afternoon, a day before Trump is expected to announce his pick to replace the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg. His office says the project will track attacks on the nominee and provide rapid response to push back. Cotton, who himself was on Trump's list of potential nominees, created the project due to the ferocity of recent Supreme Court fights—especially over Trump's nominees, Justices Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh.

Credit a man who looks like the undertaker but acts like the corpse for the more expressive, energetic politician picking three justices instead of one. Mitch McConnell played a 12 into a 21 after the February 2016 death of Antonin Scalia. Faced with a nominee moderate by the standards of recent justices placed on the bench by Democratic presidents, the Senate majority leader opted to block Merrick Garland on the assumption that the Republican presidential nominee would win in November 2016.

The death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg has clarified what is at stake in the 2020 election. It is not, as some believe, democracy itself. Nor is it, as others assume, our continued existence as a nation. Democracy will survive Donald Trump, and the United States of America will outlast Joe Biden. The question that 2020 will help to answer is what sort of democracy, and what sort of nation, America will be as it prepares to enter the second quarter of the 21st century. The reaction to Ginsburg’s death, and to Republican plans to fill her seat on the Supreme Court, underscores the choice before the electorate:

Understanding what drives the revolution that is destroying the American republic gives insight into how the 2020 election’s results may impact its course. Its practical question—who rules?—is historically familiar. But any revolution’s quarrels and stakes obscure the question: to what end? Our revolution is by the ruling class—a revolution from above. Crushing obstacles to its growing oligarchic rule is the proximate purpose. But the logic that drives the revolution aims at civilization itself. What follows describes how far along its path that logic has taken America, and where it might take us in the future depending on the election’s outcome.

Americans deserve to hear more from the man who wants to be president, and who is willing and able to face tougher questioning.

Two Amish brothers in Missouri admitted having sex with their 12-year-old sister and getting her pregnant — but managed to avoid jail time because a prosecutor feared they’d “be eaten alive” in prison, according to a report. The abuse came to light after a doctor alerted authorities that the girl was pregnant just after she turned 13 — and she said that four of her brothers, two of them also minors, had been having sex with her, according to the Webster County Citizen. The eldest two — Aaron Schwartz, 22, and 18-year-old brother Petie — admitted to police that they had sex
