White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre confirmed the administration is considering shutting down a Michigan oil pipeline, as President Biden finds himself caught between an environmental promise and looming gas price hikes. The administration is exploring the possibility of terminating the Line 5 pipeline—which links Superior, Wisconsin, with Sarnia, Ontario—and gathering data to determine if shutting down the line will cause a surge in fuel pricing. 'Yes, we are,' Jean-Pierre said, asked in a news briefing if the administration is 'studying' the impacts of a potential shutdown. 'The army corps of engineers is preparing an environmental impact to look through this,' she continued.


Americans demand the freedumb to freeze in the dark this winter, and pay more for the privilege.

They want you to drive an electric car. The only way to do that is to make gas cost $10-15 a gallon, and that is EXACTLY what they plan on doing. And even then, they have to heavily subsidize makers of electric cars, buyers of electric cars, and electric recharging stations. SEVEN BILLION.....$7,000,000,000 is being spent to make charging stations.....and how many government gas stations were there EVER? NONE. Communists.....they decide what you will do and FORCE you to do it.

I don't imagine this would make Canada too happy. Biden already screwed over them when he shut down the Keystone pipeline. As far as Michigan is concerned --up theirs--- they voted for this.

Oooooooo! The republicans are demanding that the pipeline remain open. I'll bet the communist death democrats are really, really scared and will now not shut down the pipeline. Sure thing republicans, you are such brave warriors. When is everybody going to wake up and realize that the communist death democrats don't care if thousands freeze to death. If it helps in attaining their sacred goal of destroying the fossil fuels industry and crushing us what's a few thousand deaths here and there. Demanding that the pipeline stay open. The republicans are such worthless pieces of you know what. These same traitors helped the communist death democrats steal the election.

It isn't just "Line 5", which is actually two 20" lines, Biden is back stabbing one of Americas largest transporters of Energy, 40% of all of our Exports, 65% of all of Canada's. Line 5 itself is 68yo, designed/built by Bechtel, 3 times as thick as a normal pipeline, constantly inspected in side and out. has NEVER had a leak.

The Marxist left has made it very clear for decades: Right off the top, they want 1/2 to 3/4 of us dead. No questions, no recourse, no quarter. They figure the rest can be managed without much effort, once they get rid of conservatives, anti-revolutionaries, the old, sick and infirm, and all the other "defectives". But first they need to disarm us, then collect all of our assets so they can redistribute them to their loyalists and a little to the "people" to keep them quiet. G-d! Could they be any clearer? Why do we never learn that evil gets a thrill out of first telling us what it plans to do? Read their manifestos, like "Prairie Fire" (the old radical guide from Bill Ayers in 1974), and the testimony of witnesses like Larry Grathwohl, regarding Bill Ayers (Obama's buddy) and others. That goes back to my college days, when it was the radical young people of the SDS, Weather Underground, etc., except now all these people are "grown up"... and, after working their ways up through the "system", they are now IN CHARGE. Read this bit of testimony from the OLD FBI's man inside these organizations 40-50 years ago: "I brought up the subject of what's going to happen after we take over the government. You know, [once] we become responsible for administering, you know, 250 million people. And there was no answer. No one had given any thought to economics. How are you going to clothe and feed these people? "The only thing that I could get was that they expected that the Cubans, the North Vietnamese, the Chinese, and the Russians would all want to occupy different portions of the United States. "They also believed that their immediate responsibility would be to protect against what they called the "counter-revolution." And they felt that this counter-revolution could best be guarded against by creating and establishing re-education in the [American] Southwest, where we would take all of the people who needed to be re-educated into the new way of thinking and teach them how things were going to be. "I asked, "Well, what is going to happen to those people that we can't re-educate, that are diehard capitalists?" And the reply was that they'd have to be eliminated. And when I pursued this further, they estimated that they'd have to eliminate 25 million people in these re-education centers. And when I say "eliminate," I mean kill 25 million people. "I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of whom have graduate degrees from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people. And they were dead serious." -L.Grathwohl The question is, how easily are we all going to roll over and give them what they want? We have too easily surrendered our leadership to sociopaths, people with ego and borderline personality issues, pathological power-trippers who want to run our lives or kill us trying. These are NOT the caliber of "leadership" that our forefathers envisioned that a rational and serious nation would place in authority over ourselves. Those who left this dream to us would be shocked and offended by the whole process by which we now conduct our nation’s sacred rites. “Liberty or death” – does anyone believe they would not be picking up torches and arms, and demanding that many of our current “leaders” show cause why they should not be tossed into the street? But, then again, we seem to have lost the spark, the righteousness, the moral center to deserve, defend and preserve such a precious gift. We can only pray that the recent evidence of a Turning in public sentiment and awareness is a real thing, and that it catches fire and builds momentum, because that is all that is going to save this Nation from the vermin that have infested the high and holy places of our great Country, and which has cast a stench over our lives. As for all of you self-serving, self-centered, authoritarian, anti-American, treasonous pigs on the Left who think it is your manifest destiny to run roughshod over the rest of us -- Damn you all! From the vacant-eyed moron at the top to the most deeply-entrenched black-hearted bureaucrat waiting for his pension in his 10th-floor office, I doubt you can comprehend in how many ways the American people will celebrate when they lay upon you the justice you deserve. You have offended us to our hearts and souls with your empty, callous and cynical evil, your inhumanity under the guise of progress, technology and “science”, your arrogance and stupidity in how you have chosen to abuse and manipulate the spirit and dreams of this Nation. Believe it - you have stirred them, and they are coming for you.

The tents were lined up with a soldierly precision, and each sported a prominent American flag. The impressive display was a mixture of pride and tragedy.

Members of Congress who die in office customarily have a year’s salary, currently $174,000, as a payout to their survivors. Families of U.S. service members who die on active duty get a $100,000 death gratuity. Japanese Americans, forced out of their homes and into internment camps for more than two years during World War II, collected $20,000 payments four decades later. That’s worth about $46,000 in today’s dollars. Lawmakers and legal experts are looking at those kinds of payments as the Biden administration considers cutting $450,000 checks—nearly 10 times the inflation-adjusted rate paid to the internees—to compensate illegal immigrants who say they suffered emotional trauma

The U.S. is one of the few countries still recommending masks in schools as most nations let kids attend classes without face coverings. Although states are allowed to set their own rules, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests universal indoor masking for all students above age two regardless of vaccination status. In fact, 68.2 percent of the 500 of the largest school districts in America still require masks, according to data analytics firm Burbio. But there are only six other nations in the Western world that require or strongly advise kids to cover their noses and mouths. Meanwhile, more than a dozen other countries, including the UK,

Researchers running a small number of Pfizer's original Covid vaccine trials may have skewed their findings, an investigation has warned. A US subcontractor paid to run an arm of the study has been accused of cutting corners, obscuring data and putting patients in harm's way. Brook Jackson, a former boss at Ventavia, said the firm did not always test patients with symptoms, which potentially masked how well the jab performed. She told a British Medical Journal probe that as well as 'falsifying' data, Ventavia hired underqualified staff as vaccinators and failed to follow-up on side effects.
