Hawaiians, more than residents of any other state, will likely see higher gasoline and energy costs due to Russia's Ukraine war and the resulting soaring oil prices. “Isolated by the Pacific Ocean, Hawaii is the most petroleum-dependent U.S. state,” notes the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Overall, the U.S. consumes very little Russian oil. In 2021, oil from that country represented just 3% percent of total U.S. crude imports and just 1% of the oil processed by U.S. refineries, according to the American Fuel and Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) trade association.

It's hard to feel sorry for a state that foisted Obamarama and Crazy Maizey on us.

The Spanish American War was another unwise war. We should grant independence to the remaining areas we gained through that war.

Because of the Demon-Rat lead state government, everything is way more expensive in Hawaii. They won't notice $15-$20 a gallon gas. The governor can just tell them they are doing their part to turn Hawaii into a "clean energy paradise"!!! Lie-berals are stupid enough to believe it!!!

No more ‘gypsy moth’, insect has new name 18 replies
Posted by NorthernDog 3/3/2022 2:16:45 PM Post Reply
In an attempt to stop using a name that some deemed derogatory, the ‘gypsy moth’ is no more and officials have determined a new name for the insect. The Entomological Society of America (ESA) announced that the new name has been selected for the moth species Lymantria dispar. It was voted unanimously to approve the addition of ‘spongy moth’ to ESA’s common names of insects and related organisms list. This completes a process that reportedly started back in July 2021. ‘Gypsy moth’ was removed from the list because officials determined that it was a derogatory term for the Romani people.

As demand for COVID-19 vaccines collapses in many areas of the U.S., states are scrambling to use stockpiles of doses before they expire and have to be added to the millions that have already gone to waste. From some of the least vaccinated states, like Indiana and North Dakota, to some of the most vaccinated states, like New Jersey and Vermont, public health departments are shuffling doses around in the hopes of finding providers that can use them. State health departments told The Associated Press they have tracked millions of doses that went to waste, including ones that expired, were

Oil prices are spiraling higher on supply concerns as the Russia-Ukraine crisis develops, and this could lead to demand destruction and an economic recession, according to an oil analyst. "I'm concerned that we don't have enough oil at all here, and we need to go to $120 to $150 [per barrel], and then we get into economic destruction," said Paul Sankey of Sankey Research. The firm sees oil trading between $100 and $150 per barrel until the situation in Ukraine is resolved, according to a research note. International benchmark Brent crude futures jumped 3.24% to $116.59 per barrel, after earlier

Russia has launched a third wave of terrifying nighttime missile strikes on Ukraine. Shells rained down across the Eastern European country following the third day of all out war with Russia. The sky above the city glowed an ominous orange as loud bangs rang out from the blasts, thought to have been from Russian ballistic missiles. It is unclear where the explosions took place, although it is thought to be to the South West of the city. And The Kyiv Independent reports an oil depot had been blown up at Vasylkiv, around 40km West of Kyiv. Vasylkiv mayor Natalia Balasynovych

Rising inflation, a continuing pandemic, a foreign policy misstep in Afghanistan and Democratic infighting all marred President Biden's first year, and now a majority of respondents to a new NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll say his first year was a "failure." In all, 56% said Biden's first year in office was a failure, versus just 39% who said it was a success. What's more, 54% said he's not fulfilling his campaign promises, and 52% said he has done more to divide the country than unite it, despite uniting the country being a pillar of Biden's 2020 presidential run.

BRUSSELS — A new front line of conflict is taking shape in Europe, with enhanced levels of risk that raise questions about whether NATO will, or even can, respond effectively. Having invaded Ukraine and deployed its troops in a compliant Belarus, Russia has suddenly extended its military power to the borders of several NATO countries, including the Baltic nations. If Russia succeeds in taking over Ukraine and keeping bases in Belarus, as many experts now expect, its forces will extend from the borders of the Baltics and Poland to Slovakia, Hungary and northern Romania, making it significantly harder for NATO to

BERLIN - The chief of the German army vented his frustration over what he sees as the long-running neglect of military readiness in his country in an unusual public rant a few hours after Russia invaded Ukraine, adding that the army was in bad shape. Russian forces invaded Ukraine by land, air and sea on Thursday, confirming the worst fears of the West with the biggest attack by one state against another in Europe since World War Two.

The slap from Putin's mouthpiece came after Graham Tweeted Thursday night that it was time for a 'Brutus' to emerge amid Putin throwing Russia's forces into a bloody invasion of Ukraine—a comment that U.S. commentators immediately warned could fuel Russian propaganda.

'These days, not everyone manages to maintain sobriety, I would even say sanity, and many lose their mind,' he added.

If you have been monitoring the coverage of the conflict in Ukraine, it is amply clear that a narrative is being pushed. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy is being compared to Winston Churchill during World War II; he is leading his people during perilous times to become an inspiring figure. He refused a safe passage offer from the U.S. with the quip: “I need ammunition, not a ride”. He streams videos from the deserted streets of Ukraine and posts photos with his cabinet. Photos of Zelenskyy surface in military gear on the battlefront. To sum it up, Zelensky is being portrayed as Churchill, Rambo and social media influencers all rolled into one.

The First Lady began her speech recalling Inauguration Day when she watched Joe Biden take the oath of office just a year ago. “In that moment, he was the man I fell in love with so many years ago,” she recalled, joining her husband to address a small crowd in Superior, Wisconsin. The president reacted visibly with surprise to her comment, prompting the crowd to burst into laughter, interrupting the first lady’s speech. “I guess I don’t tell him enough,” she replied after Biden

President Joe Biden had the lowest viewership for his State of the Union than any of his four predecessors first addresses with less than 40 million tuning in, according to Nielsen ratings. In a tracking of the 16 networks that aired live coverage of the address on Tuesday evening, 38,197,000 individuals were watching from 27,408,000 different households in the U.S. The figures from Biden's speech come amid an ongoing war in Ukraine and increasingly dire approval rating numbers for the president and Democratic lawmakers going into the 2022 midterm elections.

President Joe Biden raised eyebrows with a seemingly unplanned interaction with children after signing a bill protecting the rights of victims of sexual harassment. More specifically, it was the children of ex-Fox News host Gretchen Carlson. The former network host, who sued the late chairman and CEO of Fox News, Roger Ailes for sexual harassment, was on hand for the signing ceremony Thursday. On social media, she noted the moment that Biden handed her the pen after he signed into law the Ending Forced Arbitration of Sexual Assault and Sexual Harassment Act. (Tweet)

Joe Biden has had one of the most disastrous first years of a presidential term in US history. Yeah, Abraham Lincoln had the Civil War and George W. Bush had 9/11, but there’s a difference between events being forced on a president and a president causing events. Biden managed to completely screw up the response to COVID despite being handed vaccines upon taking office. More people ended up dying on his watch than under the Trump administration. Then there are the foreign policy boondoggles, from Afghanistan to what’s currently happening with Russia. But if that wasn’t bad enough, Biden also turned the border into a humanitarian disaster.
