Give up your car and start walking. That’s an order. The International Energy Agency (IEA) on Friday directed global governments to urgently cut oil supply to domestic consumers and encourage compliance with its call for lowered consumption. The IEA 10-point plan to drive “changes in the behaviour of consumers” and reduce gas demand at the pump includes reducing speed limits, working from home three days a week, more electric cars, car-free Sundays, more cycle lanes, cheaper public transport and greater use of long-distance trains over planes. The IEA also called on the OPEC+ group of oil-producing nations led by Saudi Arabia


Nothing I can add to this that we don't already know. Biden has a new crisis to use to his advantage. Gretta Sourface and Al Gore must be dreaming about this.

Let's have the IEA show us how to do it first. If they can do it for a month then I'll be more than happy to go by their system. And what happens when they can't generate enough electricity for all those electric cars? Thank you Admiral Rodgers. (something he did about 8 years ago that will finally stoq this nonsense)

The IEA needs to lead by example by requiring every one of its leaders and staff to give up their automobiles, air travel, home heating, and air conditioning. Until then, these bureaucratic harridans can pound sand.

We have got to be smart because this is serious. These people (IEA) are playing for keeps. They are calling for an understanding that we have to do with less while they’re are dumping millions of illegals in our midst who have come here expecting to live large. The perpetrators think they can nudge us into compliance, bit by bit, and ultimately we’ll be perfectly happy to be poor and dependent while they are setting the country up to be poor and third world. It is evident that white people are in the crosshairs. I hope I’m wrong but there seems to be an appetite for our enslavement.

This is another "15 days to flatten the curve" scam that will last forever. They want to dump your cars, ban your travel, control your movement and consumption, and turn you into another faceless drone of the State. Green energy clearly WON'T WORK as a viable socioeconomic model FOR AT LEAST ANOTHER 30-50 YEARS without mass depopulation, downgraded prosperity, general social stagnation, and total authoritarian rule... but the current crop of decision-makers have neither the knowledge nor sense to understand that, and those who do know have neither the guts nor integrity to tell them so. The Greens will flush civilization down the toilet to suit their ideology, then blame everyone else for "not doing it right." F the following, in no particular order: JB, NP, AOC, RINO'S and Progs in general.

This is just more of the 30 by 30 plan that calls for 30 percent more land to be taken away from citizens and more people to move to the city. Less land ownership, more condensed citizens means a much more easily controlled citizenry. Probably part of the Great Reset as well.

Luddites: Wikipedia: (T)he term has come to mean one opposed to industrialization, automation, computerization, or new technologies in general. The Luddite movement began in Nottingham in England and culminated in a region-wide rebellion that lasted from 1811 to 1816.[6] Mill and factory owners took to shooting protesters and eventually the movement was suppressed with legal and military force.

At least four people – including a 14-year-old boy – were hurt in shootings across the Big Apple late Sunday, cops said. The teen was blasted in the right leg on the grounds of Harlem’s General Ulysses S. Grant Houses on West 125th Street near Convent Avenue around 9:15 p.m., authorities said. He was taken to Harlem Hospital in stable condition, and also arrested for possession of an imitation pistol, police said. The exact circumstances around the shooting were unclear. About an hour later, a 36-year-old man was shot in the neck, stomach and right leg inside a building on Wortman Avenue near Schenck Avenue in East

Climate czar John Kerry told an informal U.N. Security Council meeting on Wednesday that President Joe Biden is committed to increasing U.S. funding to developing countries by upwards of $10 billion annually to help combat the “climate crisis.” Kerry told the meeting on “Climate Finance for Sustaining Peace and Security” U.S. taxpayer dollars will be forthcoming and placed at the disposal of the globalist body to help redistribute wealth in a time of crisis to poorer countries that need it most. AP reports last September, he said, Biden promised to increase annual U.S. climate finance to over $11 billion, quadrupling the funding from the 2009-2017 presidency of

The group of truckers planned to circle Washington, DC on the Capitol beltway on Monday to protest coronavirus restrictions. During her speech,

“All animals are equal but some animals are more equal than others,” George Orwell wrote in “Animal Farm”. That quote comes to mind often when we talk about COVID-19 mandates and enforcement by various authorities. In a liberal haven like Hollywood, you’d think that a blatant show of COVID-19 mandate hypocrisy would be avoided in order to avoid the publicity yet you would be mistaken. There is a distinction made between performers and presenters at this year’s Oscars ceremony versus award nominees and guests attending the ceremony. The logic escapes me here. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided that the coronavirus safety

The globalist organisation used social media to warn countries that lift restrictions to adopt a slower approach to the pandemic and follow W.H.O. directions, even as global infection rates continue to tumble. W.H.O. medical authorities Mark Ryan and Maria Van Kerkhove explained the desire to return to normal was ill-advised and may sustain the pandemic, with potentially catastrophic outcomes.

The gay kiss was added back into the movie last week, following the outrage from a woke mob at Pixar Animation Studios.(Snip)Earlier this month, DeSantis debunked leftist falsehoods on the bill,

Fauci, the longtime director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), was asked during a podcast released March 18 whether he was mulling retirement or transitioning to a less-demanding job. “I certainly am because I’ve got to do it sometime,” Fauci, 81, said. “I can’t stay at this job forever, unless my staff is going to find me slumped over my desk one day. I’d rather not do that,” he added. Fauci was appointed to his position in 1984 during the Reagan administration.

He is childlike in his pursuit of pleasure, but shrewd and willful in his studied neglect of responsibility. His sensibilities are exquisitely tender, and yet he has a talent for causing pain...He professes universal tolerance and sweetness to all, though is willing to put his friends through shame, fear, and harm rather than see his own comfort threatened.” No, this quote does not refer to Alec Baldwin, apt though it may seem.
