Republicans knocked Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm on Friday for laughing when asked about the 'Granholm plan to increase oil production' in response to rising gas prices. 'That is hilarious,' Granholm told Bloomberg's Tom Keene. 'Would that I had the magic wand on this.' Granholm went on to explain that the higher gas prices are thanks to OPEC. (Video)As you know, of course, oil is a global market,' she said. 'It is controlled by a cartel. That cartel is called OPEC, and they made a decision yesterday that they were not going to increase beyond what they were already planning.' Republicans have hammered President Joe Biden's administration

Why should anyone think that the U S. Secretary of ENERGY should know that her own country contains almost infinite oil reseves, some of which have been recently impeded by the buffoon who appointed her? /s off

Perhaps it IS funny to her. It really all depends for whom she is actually working. Energy companies or the populous. If Energy, then heck yes, she must be happy as a clam!

Just about every policy of President Brandon has contributed to the rise, and will continue to raise the prices even further next year. Killing the pipeline project, restricting oil leases, onerous regulations, restrictive rules on truckers, increased importing of foreign oil, and in many Democrat-controlled states, much higher new gas taxes. No, sweetheart, it doesn't take a magic wand. It just takes someone like Trump to kick the Democrat boot off this country's neck.

Democrats and Republicans are like the twin girls of America. The Democrat twin hangs out with bad guys, and thinks laviscious behavior is wonderful. The Republican twin knows better, but... its her sister? She wants to stop her from behaviour that will harm them, and constantly gets dragged in the slime her sister revels in. The time is coming when a choice must be made, and the good twin will have to walk away from the bad. And the bad will not let her go, without violence.

Why do women on the left think all this is so funny they have to cackle and giggle their way pass questions asked them? I'm not laughing when I remember President Trump fixed much of this in his first eight months in office with knives sticking out of his back. I'm not laughing at those unelected nitwit buffoon dummies destroying our once great country.

Our government behaves like this because they know nobody can stop them. They say they are in charge, and rub our face in it. Granholm says she can't wave a magic wand? What she is really saying is they turned off the oil, and there is nothing you can do to make them turn it back on. Disgusting behavior in our 'leaders'. They are tyrants. This isn't governing.

Does it really matter when you are a multimillionaire Democrat politician like Granholm and instead of paying, when Trump was President, about $1.49 a gallon for gasoline, or instead with Biden as President paying $4.00 or more a gallon? While it certainly does not appear that it does matter to Granholm, Biden, and the other leftist and socialist Democrats like her, but chances are those Democrats will be finding out in the off year election next year that it does matter a lot to the ordinary American.

We had achieved energy independence for one brief moment under President Trump. Then Biden destroyed it as one of his very first acts of taking office. The result, soaring gas prices. Now Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm says, 'That is hilarious.' I'm sure the people that are hurting because of the soaring gas prices do not find this a laughing matter.

This was a disgusting display by a so-called Energy Secretary and proof of how stupid she thinks we are. She knows damn well that we don't have to rely on OPEC+ nations for our crude oil supply if we choose not to. Trump proved that to the world. She also knows damn well that this administration is the reason we are once again reliant on OPEC+ nations because of the policies they put in place upon election (killing Keystone XL, banning drilling on federal land, etc.). They put OPEC right back in cat bird's seat, and now crude oil is $83 p/barrel which is why the price of gasoline has doubled since Obama's sock puppet took office. For anyone who has even a fundamental understand of the geopolitics of the oil and gas industry, this was hard to watch.

A superior court judge on Monday dismissed a portion of a 2017 inauguration lawsuit against the Trump Organization. The lawsuit, brought by DC Attorney General Karl Racine, claimed Trump’s inaugural committee “wasted” $1 million renting ballrooms at Trump’s DC hotel. Imagine that. A Democrat worried about wasting money. Judge José López said the plaintiff didn’t reach the “extreme burden” needed to prove a “waste” claim.“In short, there is no genuine dispute that the value paid for the space at the Trump Hotel reaches the extreme burden that Plaintiff need to carry a waste claim to its fruition,” Judge José López wrote.

But weld together a hard-left socialist agenda with the control of the White House and Congress onto the combined forces of progressive woke media, Silicon Valley, the corporate boardrooms, the entertainment industry, academia, and the Wall Street borg—all in the age of instant and intrusive communications—and it’s no wonder a country, even a nation as resilient as the United States, can descend quite quickly in ways that make America almost unrecognizable. In other words, 40 weeks of relentless Bidenism finally permeates most of the nation.

Elaine Marie Thomas, 67, of Auburn, Washington, was the director of metallurgy at a foundry in Tacoma that supplied steel castings used by Navy contractors Electric Boat and Newport News Shipbuilding to make submarine hulls. From 1985 through 2017, Thomas falsified the results of strength and toughness tests for at least 240 productions of steel—about half the steel the foundry produced for the Navy, according to her plea agreement, filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Tacoma.

[snip] The procurement of these records by the ATF comes as the Biden administration moves to alter current laws to ensure that gun records are stored in perpetuity. Currently, gun shops can destroy their records after 20 years, thereby preventing the ATF from accessing the information in the future.
