Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm praised California’s ban on the sale of new gas-powered vehicles by 2035 and said it could serve as a model for the rest of the country. During an interview that aired Friday with FOX 11 Los Angeles, host Elex Michaelson first asked whether she liked the regulation approved by the California Air Resources Board to reduce carbon emissions.


Unfortunately - - Jennie didn't provide any evidence that Gullible Warming isn't a hoax. But never mind - - being a devout leftist means never having to explain what you're doing.

Without any consideration of building the infrastructure to support the switch, this is just a ploy to keep the serfs in their place…

Such idiocy seems to be a trend these days. The truth is, following such counsel will inevitably sink the United States to third-world status well before the whole electric vehicle venture fizzles, leaving us with nothing but a wrecked transportation system.

Granholme is dumber than a box of rocks, and she is wholly incompetent to be Energy Secretary. There is not power generation and transmission (even including non-renewable and fossil fueled generation) AND MONEY to handle the extra gigawatts that will be needed to charge those EV's. How many houses have 440v service? You'd need a total and complete upgrade of the nation's electrical grid--including the residential fuse boxes. And there is no supply of lithium and rare earth metals to produce the EV's. Manmade Global Warming is a HOAX, and Global Temperatures haven't increased since 1998.

Yes, a model of what NOT to do as California warns residents to not charge electric cars, turn up thermostats, don’t use appliances and turn off all unnecessary lighting. Sounds like a prison camp to me.

This more than any other plan will produce a revolution. People will not give up their mobility. And this electrical car business is limiting Americans mobility. Look at Calufornia: full electric by decree, then they say don't charge your cars. Ridiculous!! Granholm is at best a gaslighter.

Until the media coverage of the carbon emissions issue stops ignoring the polluting aspects of their "green" alternatives, I will assume everything they ARE saying about the issue is dishonest. Electric vehicles produce comparable levels of carbon emissions as traditional internal combustion engines; just away from the tailpipe, as it were, from the smokestacks of the power plants generating the electricity to charge their batteries. And the pollution caused by disposing of their batteries far exceeds what traditional engines produce at the end of their lifetime. Until the media start telling the truth on this issue, I'll keep rejecting the proposals out of hand. Until the reporting has some credibility, it has zero relevance to me. Even discussion about infrastructure for recharging is premature while the gaslighting continues.

"Granholme is dumber than a box of rocks, and she is wholly incompetent to be Energy Secretary." #4's comment is spot on. I would add that just about everyone in the Xiden Junta is a middle finger to all conservatives.

Remember, if they don't like your social media score, they could simply turn off your ability to charge that vehicle. Never considered that until recently, and always thought their goal was to have autonomous vehicles where they would regulate who could actually access the roads (again, you'll need their permission after all since they will control access to who has the ability to the roads).

Assuming current prices and availability of both the cars, their parts, and fuel, I estimate the cost to buy and operate an EV to be about 2 to 3 times that of an ICE. Not only do EVs cost 25% more at time of initial purchase, but their batteries cost $30k to replace, and only last 60k miles. But of course, the current ability to mine the needed rare metals cannot possibly provide the needed volumes of material to replace even a small fraction of ICEs now on the the whole issue will soon become moot. So...they cost 2 to 3 times as much to own, but only if you can get one. So please tell me, is that plan going to save the planet?

Does she have the use of a taxpayer-paid black, armor-plated, gas-guzzling SUV? I doubt that she gets around on DC Metro or a bicycle. If it isn't either of those two, she is a hypocrite.

Pelosi seeks ambassadorship to Italy if

Sources tell FOX Business that Pelosi wants President Biden to nominate her to become the next U.S. ambassador to Italy if the GOP takes the House majority in the midterm elections. Biden is holding the spot for the speaker, sources say, which is one reason he has yet to fill the position since taking office. Speculation earlier this year that a Pelosi ally and former Wall Street executive wanted the job has shifted with the increasing likelihood that the GOP takes the majority. There was no clarity yet on how a new Senate will react to a Pelosi nomination

Elite medical schools are deliberately recruiting woke activists, jeopardizing their mission of training physicians. That’s what our organization found in a review of the application process for America’s top 50 medical schools. Nearly three-quarters of these institutions — and 80% of the top 10 — ask applicants about their views on diversity, equity, inclusion, anti-racism and other politicized concepts. The clear goal is to find the students who will best advance divisive ideology, not provide the best care to patients.

A curious development indeed, especially after yesterday’s pas de deux over whether the FBI took Donald Trump’s passports — and why. Trump claimed that FBI agents “stole my three Passports,” while the Department of Justice remained silent about it until late in the day. Now there are two questions to ask after this NBC News report: why did FBI agents take them in the first place, and why did the inventory from the seizure not list them?

Years ago, I heard that Romans punished murderers by forcing them to carry the corpse of their victims on their backs for as long as it took for them to become infected and die. True or not, that’s the picture I get with Republicans like Bill Barr, Dick Cheney, Mitch McConnell and many others who are so determined to cling to the party’s old ways while cultural and political earthquakes are threatening to destroy America as we know it. When Trump came along as a no-nonsense outsider with a passion for winning “big league,” political curmudgeons were so enslaved to the status quo

Despite positive inflation data this week, Richmond Federal Reserve President Thomas Barkin said Friday that more interest rate increases will be needed to tamp down price pressures. Releases this week showing that consumer and wholesale price increases softened in July were “very welcome,” Barkin told CNBC’s “Squawk on the Street” in a live interview. “So we’re happy to see inflation start to move down,” he added. But he noted that, “I’d like to see a period of sustained inflation under control, and until we do that I think we’re just going to have to continue to move rates into restrictive territory.”

The Latin Mass has been put out of commission. Did you know it was divisive? I did not know that, but Francis knew it, and now he is banning it in a move that is meant, he says, to increase global unity.

GOP to Unveil New 'Commitment to America' 36 replies

Republicans in the House are preparing to roll out their midterm agenda, which they hope will give voters a reason to vote for them and not just against Democrats. The brainchild of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, the “Commitment to America” will have four parts dealing with the economy, security, education/health care, and government accountability. McCarthy’s office has indicated the Commitment to America will debut in Pittsburgh on September 19. It’s loosely based on the “Contract with American” concept created for the 1994 midterm election that was credited with helping the GOP take over both the House and Senate.

California officials say it will cost $14 billion to upgrade aging wastewater facilities that are dumping nutrients from treated human sewage into San Francisco Bay, which are feeding a giant algae bloom that has lingered for more than two months and killed tens of thousands of fish. The algae bloom, which appeared in late July, has grown to an immense size because of the tons of nutrients from urine and feces of the eight million Bay Area residents that is released into the waters daily—one plant alone dumps 85 million gallons a day that contains 5.5 tons of nitrogen. Scientists say the bloom was triggered by climate change,
Democrats Fret as Stacey Abrams Struggles

NEWNAN, Ga. — Georgia Democrats have grown increasingly pessimistic about Stacey Abrams’s chances of ousting Gov. Brian Kemp from office, pointing to her struggles to rally key parts of her party’s coalition and her inability to appeal to a slice of moderate Republican voters who can decide the state’s elections. Public and private polls have consistently shown her trailing Mr. Kemp, a Republican seeking a second term. And, in a particularly worrying sign for Ms. Abrams, polls also show she is drawing less support than the other high-profile Democrat on the ballot, Senator Raphael Warnock, who is seeking a first
