German Govt Warns Gas May Run Out over
the Winter Months

Original Article

German Federal Economy Minister Robert Habeck expressed concern over the looming energy crisis this winter, telling German media that the situation was extremely tense and there is a possibility that Germany may run out of gas. Habeck spoke on Friday, appealing to Germans to reduce their consumption of natural gas ahead of this winter a day after the German government launched a new price break programme to help Germans with the rising costs of energy. The new price break policy will cover 80 per cent of regular consumption in a bid to try and get Germans to use less gas and make the scenario of shortages less likely.


Why would they need natural gas? Germany went loud and proud Green years ago, and now runs on 100% sustainable wind and solar.

Idiots, the world is full of idiots and people are going to die. However, the greenie elites will be warm, and fed and happy through this winter. It's time to tell these people in Nov. what we think of this insane suicide pact they have made. We need to make use of any and all energy that actually works now, today. All of the above energy which can be replaced, upgraded, improved in the future as technology advances. Until then use what you have and keep researching. For anyone to have to worry about heat during the winter or their food supply is sinful but it is upon us. Famine and a cold death, in the 13th century maybe but not now. This is a manmade crisis and it is time to tell those people to f - off. Power, control, money, pure evil.

Left wing politicians have been pushing the Green nonsense for more than thirty years. When will enough people tune ("Thune") them out? The Germans wanted to go Green. Now they're going to get Green--good and hard. Will America wake up before the power starts going out in places other than California? Green is dead. End it for the good of humanity, and, ironically, for the good of the earth.

Why doesn’t Germany’s Parliament simply declare that the sun will shine and extra 4 hairs a day each day this winter and that the wind will always blow between 12 and 20 MPH? Would solve all of their self imposed problems. Or, pass a law rant solar panels and windmills produce an extra 35% of electricity no matter if Germany’s dismal winter weather blocks the sun or the wind doesn’t blow or blow too hard. Going green will eventually turn Germans blue. The natural gas shortage or even cutoff will have an incredibly negative impact on German factories and offices, followed by restaurants, bakeries and public places that require nat gas for heating and/or cooking. Nat gas for home heating, hot water and dryers will feel the cold only after commercial users are shut off.

Israel is ramping up production of LNG so go get some. Norway has a new pipeline running to Europe, so quit with the fear-mongering. Let us know how those windmills and solar panels are working out. Ohhhh here is a brilliant idea... build some nuclear reactors to generate electricity. Might help a little.

If I was there, and had a wood stove or fire place, I'd be looking for used pallets. Often these are discarded, and frequently, at least here in the USA, made of oak or other hardwood. A stack of pallets, or better yet, broken down to boards for compactness, could make a big difference if things get as bad as they seem to be predicting.

If I read the article correctly, the first 80% of my gas consumption will be subsidized, and I need to pay full price on the remaining 80%. And this is supposed to keep me from consuming more? For me, if anything, it would have the opposite effect since I am getting a freebie with the first 80%.

I well remember the video of the Germans smirking at Trump when he warned them about this at the U.N. (The American "journalists" chimed in, it shouldn't be forgotten.) I wonder if the Germans will be upset enough to vote in different leadership. Maybe not. Maybe they'll be too frozen to get to the polls.

NYT Sends Reporter to Herschel Walker’s

The liberal New York Times made the case Monday that Republican Herschel Walker has been ostracized from the black community in his small hometown amid his bid to unseat Sen. Raphael Warnock (D-GA) in the race for U.S. Senate in Georgia. Times reporter John Branch, who is based in California, used mostly anonymous sources and anecdotes from visiting Walker’s hometown of Wrightsville to generalize that feelings that Walker, a Georgia football legend, is not in touch with the black community are “flowering ahead of November’s election.” “Herschel’s not getting the Black vote because Herschel forgot where he came from. … He’s not part of the Black community,” Branch quotes

San Francisco’s government raised the Chinese flag over city hall last week to mark the founding of the People’s Republic of China 73 years ago. The city government’s action was carried out despite Beijing’s ongoing genocide in western China, as well as propaganda support for Russia’s war against Ukraine. The flag-raising took place during a ceremony on Friday with city and Chinese officials and local business representatives, according to Chinese state media. Oct. 1 was the anniversary of the founding of the communist state that critics say has been responsible for the deaths of millions of people since the Chinese Communist Party seized power in 1949.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile over Japan, for the first time in five years on Tuesday, prompting a warning for residents to take cover and a temporary suspension of train operations in the northern part of the country. The Japanese government warned citizens to take cover as the missile appeared to have flown over and past its territory before falling into the Pacific ocean. It said it did not use any defence measures to destroy the missile, which was the first to fly over or past Japan from North Korea since 2017. Prime Minister Fumio Kishida condemned the launch and called North Korea's actions 'barbaric.'

President Biden traveled Monday to Puerto Rico to survey hurricane damage, meet with families and announce $60 million in emergency aid to prepare the island for future storms. Mr. Biden’s trip comes two weeks after Hurricane Fiona ravaged the island. As of Monday, 100,000 people are still without power because of storm damage. After receiving a briefing from civil leaders about Fiona’s aftermath, Mr. Biden announced a new round of funding for the island. The aid will be used to shore up levees, strengthen flood walls and create new flood warning systems to prepare Puerto Ricans for future threats. It will come from the $1.2 trillion infrastructure package that Congress

Nor that, as even The New York Times admits, electric cars are still far too expensive and impractical for all but the rich—with vast technological and industrial progress needed before they make sense even for the middle class.

Jonathan Capehart, a Washington Post columnist and MSNBC host, is arguing that Democrats need to retake the high ground on patriotism. It really bugs him that people associate patriotism with Republicans, while it is the Democrats who are the real patriots. Yeah right. I have no idea why anybody would think that Democrat leaders and commentators aren’t patriotic. Maybe because of statements like this: Capehart’s argument is not uncommon, of course. Democrats have been frustrated by the fact that Republicans have been more successful with patriotic messaging than they since at least the 60’s. Kennedy clearly was very patriotic with his messaging, but ever since Democrats have been associated

On Monday Joe Biden tweeted more lies to compound his previous lies about abortion and morality. Monday’s fib is slightly nuanced about abortion. His characterization of Republicans being in league with the Devil, is not. Biden has characterized Republicans in general, and Trump supporters in particular. as threats to democracy and vote suppressors. And now today, he claims that Republicans are just plain evil (because they don’t want babies murdered).

Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) wanted regulatory reform, in part to reverse some of the Biden Administration reversals of Trump era reforms intended to expedite permits for fossil fuel projects. Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) needed Manchin’s vote in the 50-50 Senate to enact his latest spending extravaganza, the Inflation Reduction Act, which was primarily a massive climate and “green” energy subsidy arrangement. It gives Schumer allies some $370 billion in wind, solar, battery and other funding, tax credits and subsidies. In exchange, Schumer would offer a path for Manchin’s reform bill.
