Jayapal: Gas Prices Will Go Up ‘No Matter
What’ and We Need to Move Off Fossil Fuels

Original Article

Posted By: Imright, 3/5/2022 8:56:55 PM

On Saturday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Cross Connection,” Congressional Progressive Caucus Chair Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) argued that we have to move off of fossil fuels so we’re “free of the ability of dictators to blackmail us over oil and gas,” and that increasing domestic oil production wouldn’t keep gas prices from increasing because “no matter what we do, prices of gas are going to go up.”Jayapal said, “[I]f we ever want to be truly free of the ability of dictators to blackmail us over oil and gas, we should be investing right here at home in renewable energy technologies. We should be weaning ourselves off fossil fuels

Move to what? There currently isn't any other energy source that does what oil does for the price. End of discussion.

So it's the price of our own oil vs the price of foreign oil? He thinks it is basically the same? So drilling and processing our own oil is not cost effective? Seriously? If he truly believes that he is stupid. And if he thinks we will believe that he is still stupid. I have no doubt that sometime in the future renewable energy will be perfected so that it can be used easily and efficiently. But that time is not now. Not yet. Until then we need to drill here, now. We need to be all of the above energy users.

Or… Drill Baby Drill. All their feel good energy sources are fossil fuel, green washed. Electric cars charged from gas fired power plants, windmills that take more fossil fuel to make and maintain than all the electricity they will ever produce before they wear out and get shoved in a landfill, ethanol requires as much fossil fuel to make as you get out of it. It’s all marketing for chumps.

The many Democrat lunatics would be happy with a PERMANENT price of $5-6 dollars for a gallon of gas. Their agenda would lead to a larger-sized government offering subsidies to those they consider in need. The world is facing a war and they are considering about electric cars.

Oblabber said the same thing. Then President Trump freed up the energy industry and we became net exporters and "fossil fuels" were low priced and plentiful. If you want to ban fossil fuels, why make them scarce for only average people? Make them illegal for everybody, including elitists. You'd see an end to the war on fossil fuels then, boy.

This is the kind of garbage and ruin you get when you try to run a country by ideology, centralized authority, and compulsion, rather than practicality and common sense, and the will of the people. The people will choose what works best for them, fossilized fuels or substitutes, of which none are presently viable. Who do you think you are? Trying to run the world, of which you have no expertise, only the old discredited socialism, which you use to veil your tyranny.

Jayapal is probably the most radical leftist in the House and consistently makes idiotic asinine statements. Most Democrats are cringing because they are about to lose their seats and even if they agreed with this crap they would never say so. Romney, on the other hand, seems to think he has taken the reins from the deceased McCain to be the anti-Republican and is deluded into thinking he is respected. They’re both despised for different reasons. DC is a freakin steaming putrid swamp.

This woman seems to say that gas prices will always go up simply because it's gas. I guess she didn't live in this country during the Trump administration when gas was about $1.75. Idiot...

FTA: “no matter what we do, prices of gas are going to go up.”Jayapal said," That is why gasoline prices were in the $1.89.9 range and lower in Texas during DJT's presidency, while oil production and oil field jobs were booming. Crude was selling for, I think it was, about $30/barrel and below, and we were set to send millions of cubic feet of LNG to Europe. Trump derangement syndrome and economic ignorance are hazardous to individual intellect and to this nation as a whole.

Leftists want gas prices to be high to punish you for using it. In Columbia, Missouri a leftist city council member wanted to raise the price of water in order to "change the behavior" of those using it to water their lawns. Of course, they have no usable alternatives, they just want you to be miserable like they are.

Trump already proved this is a lie. With fracking, the pipeline, and other regulatory relief for our domestic oil industry he made the US #1 in the world in oil production, brought gas down to sub-$2/gallon, and made us completely energy-independent. The Biden/Democrat BS changed all that.

Do any of these greenies know where electricity comes from? Moving to alternative fuels is going to take time, like anything else. The grid will have to be expanded to more areas and production will need increase exponentially. The power plants use fossil fuel or nuclear energy. We stopped building nuclear those plants years ago and disposing of nuclear waste is a big issue. Wind doesn't do it. One of the side effects is that the blades of the windmills are killing millions of birds, that are essential to sustain our agriculture. Also, windmills freeze in cold weather. Solar is Ok but require mining of materials. The only sane alternative is hydrogen power generation which has its issues also. Forcing people to embrace a technology that is not here yet, is cruel and stupid. Some people can't run out and buy a new EV and/or have no means to charge same as they live in apartment buildings or homes with no garages.

Vice President Kamala Harris used her visit to Selma, Alabama, as an opportunity to compare state Republicans who passed new election laws to 1960s state troopers who attacked Black civil rights protesters as they crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Ms. Harris made the trip Sunday to commemorate the 57th anniversary of “Bloody Sunday,” the day in 1965 when White state troopers assaulted Black voting-rights demonstrators trying to cross the historic bridge in Selma. Ms. Harris described the marchers on that day as “preparing for the worst” and were kneeling in prayer as the state troopers charged at them. “Those brave marches continued to push forward to secure the freedom

American women's basketball great Brittney Griner has been detained in Russia for at least three weeks after the two-time Olympic gold medal winner and seven time WNBA All-Star was arrested at a Moscow airport for allegedly having a vape pen filled with hash oil. Griner, 31, was detained last month while flying in to play for her Russian basketball team during the WNBA offseason, but there has been no confirmed date of when she was arrested. Her last communication was on February 5 when she posted a photo to Instagram of her and her Phoenix Mercury teammates. Now Russia might use Griner as leverage

The day before yesterday, South Carolina GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham caused a political firestorm when he tweeted the following. (Snip) Marcus Junius Brutus was the Roman magistrate who conspired with Roman Senator Gaius Cassius to assassinate Roman dictator Julius Caesar in 44 B.C., while Claus von Stauffenberg led a failed assassination attempt against Adolf Hitler in 1944. Yesterday, Graham doubled down on his comments on Fox and Friends. "I'm hoping someone in Russia will understand he is destroying Russia and you need to take this guy out back any means possible," adding that Russia needed an "Eliot Ness or a Wyatt Earp." Ness was a reference to the prohibition-era agent

Antony Blinken said Sunday there is intelligence that Russia is engaging in 'war crimes' against Ukrainian people as Vladimir Putin continues his assault on the country, targeting military and civilians alike. 'We've seen very credible reports of deliberate attacks on civilians, which would constitute a war crime,' the Secretary of State told CNN's State of the Union. 'What we're doing right now is documenting all of this, putting it all together, looking at it and making sure that as–people and the appropriate organizations and institutions investigate whether war crimes have been or are being committed,' Blinken added. He reiterated that the reports are 'very credible.'

Democrats do not want “unity” with the GOP “fascists,” according to a recent Salon piece accusing Republicans of seeking to create a “21st-century Herrenvolk society” in which black people “have no rights the white man is bound to respect.”Titled “Dear Joe Biden: We don’t want ‘unity’ with fascists — that’s why Democrats lose,” and penned by senior politics writer Chauncey DeVega, the Friday Salon essay declares “the compromise [Biden] imagines” is simply “surrendering to fascism.” Calling President Biden the “best option available for defeating Donald Trump and buying time to organize a defense of American democracy against the neofascist assault,” the author claims the president has accomplished “a great deal”

How does any rational or caring human being watch us lose a 20-year war against cave-dwelling barbarians, and not just lose that war, but lose it in the most humiliating fashion imaginable, and less than a year later already have a war-boner for Ukraine? I’m convinced the unholy alliance between Neocons, the corporate media, and the Democrat party is the Seventh Seal. For a moment, let’s forget about the fact that America is incapable of liberating anyone; let’s ignore that our definition of “liberating” is to spend $4 trillion killing hundreds of thousands of innocents and then abandoning them to the enemy.

Leeds Crown Court has heard that a British girl was abused and groomed by up to 300 men by the time she reached the age of 17. The courtroom was told that the girl was targeted by a group of men from the age of 14, and her parents had contacted social services after she repeatedly returned home looking dishevelled and under the influences of drugs and alcohol—one time completely naked from the waist down. However, Kate Batty, for the prosecution, said that the unidentified girl’s parents were told by social services that “she must love it if she keeps going back”—a stance that has stark parallels

Houston, Texas — Election officials in Texas’ largest county failed to count approximately 10,000 ballots by election day. The Democrat-appointed election administrator for Harris County reported 6,000 of the ballots were cast in the Democratic Party primary and 4,000 in the Republican Party Primary. “As we continue to run through the numerous checks and balances of the tallying process, we identified approximately 10,000 mail-in ballots (6,000 Democratic and 4,000 Republican) that were not added into the original Election Night count,” Harris County Election Administrator Isabel Longoria said in a written statement obtained by Breitbart Texas. “The oversight occurred between the hours of 1 and 4 a.m.

Plans for Poland to send fighter jets to Ukraine have been given the 'green light' by the US amid warnings from Russia that countries hosting Kyiv's military aircraft could end up being involved in an armed conflict. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said today that the country was in talks with Poland in order to orchestrate a deal that would allow Polish fighter jets to be flown by pilots from the Ukrainian Air Force in order to combat Russia's air superiority. The deal would see Ukraine take Poland's 28 Russian-made MiG-29 warplanes, which would in turn be replaced by a fresh set of F-16's
