When it comes to “net-zero” energy policy, the commentary coming from the Biden administration these days is truly dizzying. Americans are now being told that California’s crazy energy policies would be a good model for the rest of the nation. Have these people seen what’s going on there? California’s plan to ban all gasoline-powered vehicles by 2035 and replace them with electric vehicles “could be” a model for the rest of the nation, Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm recently said. She didn’t mean that as a warning, but you should know: It is one.

If they really believe what they claim, it would make more sense to push for ownership of hybrid vehicles that do not have to be charged from the grid. Their real plan seems to be making travel and commuting unaffordable for the peons so that the masses can be concentrated in urban centers to be more easily controlled.

A real easy way to stop some of this insanity is to make it mandatory for ALL government employees to take mass transit or ride Bikes. No more personal vehicles for them. Lead by example. This whole mandatory EV nonsense will stop real quick.

California?? Farmers in Europe can't afford the fuel to reap nor the electricity to store crops. Switzerland is warning of fines for people who turn their thermistats above 66F thus winter. Germany is desperately reigniting coal and nuclear power plants and Germans are scouring forests for winter fuel. Sri Lanka has had a coup over green policies. Australia exports their coal to india and china while their govetnment plans to end "fossil fuel" . The entire "white" world's politicians have gone outhouse rat nuts.

The nation's energy policy is suicidal. There are certain necessities we will always need more of, not less: Energy, food, and water. This is like an IQ test. Are we dumb enough to cut back on basic necessities? It appears we are, and we are flunking that particular IQ test.

I'm old enough to remember the horrific brown "smog" that hung over LA in the 1970's, which resulted from many things, not the least of which was exhaust emissions from gasoline and diesel engines in a booming economy. California pushed for Federal emission standards to be placed on all new vehicles then "put a gun to the heads" of the "Big Three" automakers by refusing to allow the sale of any new "non-compliant" vehicles. Not wanting to lose the huge Cali market, the Big Three rolled up their sleeves and went to work building "California Emissions" engines. California would "rinse and repeat" LA's "smog" issue ad infinitum. Fast forward to today where a majority of LA's air pollution comes from China's coal, via the Pacific breeze. Engineers in the USA, Japan, and Germany stepped up to develop near "ideal" engines that not only burn fuel more efficiently, but can also develop horsepower and torque once only possible in aftermarket "speed shops." For example the current Chevy "LS" engines are the closest thing to "perfect" from America, so far. Ahh, but the children of Neverland are never satisfied with what they're given, even if it's exactly what they requested. California expects its surrounding States to increase electric production for THEM, while they refuse to build any new power plants, including nuclear. Decision-makers in Neverland are rarely required to trifle with inanities, such as the "law of unintended consequences." If ever questioned regarding a very likely consequences, they simply shrug them off with the comment, "Even if that WERE to happen, we'd cross that bridge at the time," and discussion ends. When surrounding States 'hyperinflate electric rates to punish Cali for failure to co-produce, they'll capitulate by building new gas-fired plants, which take 10 years to come on-line. In the meantime, most current residents (= white) will have taken up residence in 'flyover' country. In the aftermath of the economic implosion, China will buy everything and Spanish will become the official language.

Our betters damn well know it's impossible. That's why they are ensuring it takes place. They can't yet ban car ownership, but they can make it so difficult and expensive that personal travel is ended. That would keep their tax paying base in the crumbling cities where workers can be closely monitored. I've long ago stopped trying to think and ask why governments do detrimental things to us. It's intentional to gain compliance. Covid masks, quarantines and mandatory shots anyone?

The Political Party That’s Built On Lies 4 replies

For decades the political left has called those on the political right fascists. Doing so is particularly de rigueur these days, with Joe Biden saying that Donald Trump supporters are semi-fascists, and then devoting an entire speech to trying to convince the nation that those who disagree with him and his party are threats to our republic. But it’s nothing more than another lie told to sustain the Democratic Party’s campaign to occupy America. Democrats have been calling their political opponents fascists since at least 1948, when Harry Truman said a Republican election win would pose a fascistic threat to America,

Americans fervently believe in equal justice for all, not just under law but within public institutions such as the media as well, polls have shown. And yet, one recent poll leads to a disturbing conclusion: That America is increasingly turning into a two-tiered system of justice based on politics and beliefs. The Golden/TIPP Poll (TIPP is also Issues & Insights’ polling partner) asked 1,310 voters online this summer the following question: “Generally speaking, do you agree or disagree with the statement: “There is a two-tiered system of justice in America depending on your political affiliation and ideology?” The results of the poll,
With Biden Loan Bailout, Federal College

In case you haven’t heard, the price tag for President Joe Biden’s student loan bailout is likely to total $1 trillion over the next decade. This is on top of the massive amounts of money taxpayers already fork over each year to subsidize college education. It’s time to ask whether any of this is worth it. The $1 trillion figure comes from a study by the Wharton School of the student loan forgiveness plan Biden plans to implement. As part of the plan, he’d cancel $10,000 in student debt for millions of students, which will cost upward of $519 billion.

When candidate Joe Biden promised that if elected president he would unite the country, did he think he could do it alienating roughly half the population? Or did he mean he would unite the Democrats and independents against the “MAGA Republicans”? Thursday’s speech clearly indicates what he had in mind was the latter. Last week, Biden smeared Donald Trump supporters, calling them semi-fascists who practice “burn-it-all-down politics” and face “​​backwards full of anger, violence, hate and division.” One of the most appropriate and fitting responses we saw

For the first time in more than 80 years, the Atlantic Ocean hasn’t produced a named storm between July 3 and Aug. 31. So the Climatistas will have to celebrate Labor Day this year for its Marxist roots rather than the weather destruction they’re constantly rooting for so they can blame it on man. The Atlantic’s failure to form a tempest is a rarity. It “has had no #hurricanes yet this year,” Colorado State University meteorologist Philip Klotzbach tweeted Thursday. 2022’s calm spell happens to be only the seventh time since 1950 that the Atlantic “has gone through August without a #hurricane. Other years are: 1967, 1984, 1988, 2001, 2002, 2013.”

President Joe Biden caused quite a stir late last week after accusing supporters of former President Donald Trump of following a political creed of “semi-fascism.” But it’s yet another case of the far-left Democratic Party projecting its own grievous sins on the political opposition. This was Saul Alinsky’s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.” The Biden administration and the Democrats are following this rule to a T. They constantly call Republicans, conservatives and those “deplorable” moderate Americans in middle America the most vile names – “racists,” “fascists,” “Nazis,” and worse –

Reporters and analysts are getting used to describing news about the U.S. economy as “mixed.” The public, however, knows it’s all bad, because the results of President Joe Biden’s economic and energy policies are hitting Americans right in their pocketbooks. The latest ostensibly good news was Thursday’s Bureau of Economic Analysis report that the second quarter decline in U.S. gross domestic product was a little less than previously stated: -0.6% instead of -0.9%. That’s good only if your definition of success is slightly slower failure. The reality is that the U.S. economy is in serious decline and getting worse.

To look on the bright side, Americans don’t disagree about everything. One issue in particular seems to bring them together in near-perfect accord: Are we a unified nation after more than a year-and-a-half of President Joe Biden? Americans overwhelmingly answer no, the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows. To gauge the ongoing unity zeitgeist, each month the I&I/TIPP Poll asks Americans whether “the United States is: Very united. Somewhat united. Somewhat divided. Very divided. Not sure.” The data make for depressing reading. Among those responding to the poll,

Two years later, and surely emboldened by their success, they are back, their sights set on throwing the midterm elections to the Democrats. There can be no doubt that social media is aligned with the left in a political cleansing of Republican candidates and voters.

Dear Steve, You ask why doctors are silent. The electronic medical records (EMRs) are a ball and chain to physicians. We are tracked through them. When I wrote a prescription for Ivermectin for a patient, with informed consent (she was vaccinated), I received 5 letters threatening my medical license, my hospital privileges, and my insurance contracts. I would not have received 5 letters if I killed someone in negligence or malpractice. If I have my license pulled, I will no longer be able to help my patients. I speak to patients on a one-on-one basis, but speaking out would destroy my family.

NEW YORK — Payment processor Visa Inc. said Saturday that it plans to start separately categorizing sales at gun shops, a major win for gun control advocates who say it will help better track suspicious surges of gun sales that could be a prelude to a mass shooting. But the decision by Visa, the world’s largest payment processor, will likely provoke the ire of gun rights advocates and gun lobbyists, who have argued that categorizing gun sales would unfairly flag an industry when most sales do not lead to mass shootings. It joins Mastercard and American Express, which also said they plan to move forward with categorizing gun shop sales.

CBS News has a big scoop this afternoon. The industry group that sets international standards for credit card companies has decided to create a new code for the purchase of guns and ammo that, while not identifying the exact purchases, will separate those items from the more generic category they had been lumped in with previously. Merchant category codes are made up of four digits and are used across all sorts of industries as a means to classify retailers, while not revealing individual product purchases. Credit card companies currently lump firearm retailers in with other outlets, classifying them as either “5999: Miscellaneous retail stores” or “5941: Sporting Goods Stores.”

Former first lady Hillary Clinton was put on the spot when Bravo host Andy Cohen asked what she’d want to ask Melania Trump, who moved into the White House 16 years after Clinton and her husband moved out. In a “Watch What Happens Live” segment called “Host Talkative,” Cohen began by showing a photo of the 45th president’s wife. Clinton was asked to ask the first thing that came to mind. “Ummm... How’s your summer going?” Clinton asked. The quick reply got a chuckle from the show’s host as well as the former Secretary of State Clinton’s daughter Chelsea, who was also on stage in the show that aired Thursday.
