History may someday record today as the beginning of the end of the internal combustion engine – and of individual liberty in the U.S. According to news reports, the EPA is scheduled to release proposed auto emissions standards today on new car sales so stringent that the only way for automakers to meet them would be to shift two-thirds of their fleet to electric. But wait. How can a regulatory agency do that? Consumers aren’t demanding electric cars. Lawmakers didn’t vote to force them on the public. The Environmental Protection Agency knows better, though, and, unless it’s neutered, plans to force EVs on you – for your own good.

This is government forcing oppressive rules and regulations down our throats without giving citizens the right to vote on them. Can we say tyranny, boys and girls? Why is the automobile industry going along with this? These corporate big shots are insane if they believe this green tyranny can actually work. Anyone can see that we are committing ideological suicide if this becomes reality. Do they think they are exempt from the fallout? The production of EV’s will do more damage than the internal combustion engine ever could. We are creating a slave population by forcing children in the third world to mine for the materials needed. That alone should cause grave concern. This green garbage will destroy not only the west but the planet. How can seemingly intelligent people go along with this nonsense? Common sense tells us this is complete and utter nonsense. Is this a collective delusion that is driving this movement? The greenies are on a collision path with reality and they want to drag us all with them. I will not deny what I know is right to please these nitwits. Where are the scientific truth-tellers? Apparently, the green mob has silenced them.

The IC will go the way of horse drawn carriages and steam engines. It is inevitable. But the ONLY way it can be done without disastrous consequences is by market forces. Driven by the mutually reinforcing cycle of affordable technology and consumer demand. That's how we got where we are. But we know all that. This is nothing but a political power grab. IMO, won't go too far ahead of consumer demand.

This didn’t just happen. Bush era bailouts of GM came with environmental weenies attached and no one in the big government loving Republican political class stood up and said no. The stupidity of California environmental extremism, and the graft and corruption that follows became the tyranny of regulation at the federal level.

How can they do that? REGULATIONS. I have said it over and over . It isn't the Congress passing laws that are the biggest problem. It is the REGULATORS. A couple of appointed Jerk-offs in an office thinking up regulations that carry the force of law but are not passed by people elected to pass laws. When these Agencies are a part of the Deep State this is the kind of garbage they come up with. One day most Americans will be a part of the Cuban act of driving older decrepit cars that should have been retired years ago.

Don't get too giddy over this, we the people haven't weighed in on this as yet. Besides, if taken to the Supreme Court, it will be struck down, because the EPA can't legislate. Only Congress can do that.

The real villains in this is Congress, which passes laws and delegates regulation to the bureaucrats and "scientists." So, ask your Member of Congress or Senator what they're going to do with their black Suburbans, and where is the electricity coming from to power all these vehicles. They don't know. They'll rage on, make some noise, and walk away. If CUBA can keep their IC vehicles running, so can the US.

Recently Ford partnered with George Soros to create and market an all-electric truck, the Rivian. It cost $220,000 to make one and it sold for $81,000. Not a good business model. But to institute the North Korean way of life here, where everybody walks, eyes cast downward, it had to happen. Feature, but bug.

Those of you saying that you will never buy an EV fail to understand what this means. If this goes through there will not be anything but EVs to buy. More importantly, there will not be as many vehicles available to buy as there are today. Forget the limitations imposed by the lack of natural resources to build that number of EVs. The companies just are not capable of doing so. GM, which has been all onboard EVs for over a decade, is failing to come anywhere close to its projected production of EVs this year.

The Supreme Court has already ruled that the EPA has massively overstepped it's authority. These rules need to be resisted by filing a federal lawsuit, based on the SCOTUS ruling in EPA vs WVa, and get these rules erased. EPA does NOT have endless authority to do these evil things without the Congress voting on them.

Over the past two years, vast numbers of Americans picked up and moved. In a mobile society like ours, that’s not news. What is news is where they are moving from, and where they are going to. Turns out, there’s a mass exodus underway, with people leaving Biden strongholds and heading to MAGA country. New Census data show that, from 2021 to 2022, more than 2 million people moved out of urban areas that are largely controlled by Democrats and relocated to exurbs and more rural areas that largely voted for Donald Trump. Los Angeles County, for example, had a net ex-migration of more than 363,000

To see biological males win “woman of the year” awards and others compete against women in sports, and at least one paid to promote sports bras, it’s obvious the American mind has slipped a few gears. But our current troubles are about more than celebrating what is clearly a mental illness that needs to be treated. We have lost our way almost entirely across the board. The locus of our insanity, one could argue, is Washington, D.C. The federal government developed a habit long ago of spending beyond its means. But the foolishness has reached new levels.

It’s April but, with just 10 months to go, the clock is ticking down to January when the first two states (Iowa and New Hampshire) pick their favorites for president. The clear favorite for the Democrats is President Joe Biden, and for Republicans, former President Donald Trump. But neither contender can take their lead for granted, the latest I&I/TIPP Poll shows. Look at the Democrats, for example. Biden is favored by 39% of Democrats and Democrat-leaning voters. That’s a four-point drop from 43% in March, according to the April online I&I/TIPP Poll of 662 Democrats/independents who lean Democrat, taken from

Whatever the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports today about job growth and the unemployment rate, you can bet that President Joe Biden will use it as an opportunity to brag about his superb handling of the economy. The one thing Biden is good at is lying with statistics. Biden will probably claim that he’s overseen a record number of new jobs – the most in history. The press will dutifully regurgitate White House talking points. But the numbers getting bandied about these days about job growth and unemployment are wildly misleading because they ignore important bits of context. Such as:
If Rule Of Law Dies, So Does Our Republic 12 replies
Posted by RockyTCB 4/6/2023 7:43:33 AM Post Reply
A number of columns and editorials in recent weeks have openly wondered if the notion of a nation ruled by laws — fair laws reasonably interpreted by well-trained, unbiased, disinterested judges — was dying. Sorry, but it might already be dead. The overtly political mugging of Donald Trump by a Soros-backed New York district attorney wielding a risible 34-count felony indictment that could put the ex-president behind bars for more than 100 years is bad enough. But the absurd nature of the accusations make clear the legal charges have nothing to do with the law, and everything to do with Democratic politics. It’s an obvious example of overreach

Ever since the beginning of the global warming debate, now labeled “climate change,” there has been one immutable yet little-known fact: All of the temperature data stations used to make determinations about the state of Earth’s temperature are controlled by governments. In June 1988, when Dr. James Hansen, then-director of NASA’s Institute for Space Studies in Manhattan, went before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee to say that, “global warming has begun,” he was using temperature data collected by governments worldwide from a weather station network that was never intended to detect a “global warming signal.”

The latest Social Security annual report, projecting that the Trust Fund will be exhausted in 2033, a year sooner than previously thought, politely explains that the Trustees “reassessed their expectations for the economy in light of recent developments.” What recent developments, you ask? Rising inflation, declining output, weakened GDP forecast, and worsening labor productivity. In other words, this is another bitter fruit from President Joe Biden’s poisoned economic tree.

The New York Times reported that the Biden administration will abuse EPA regulations to eliminate most real car sales by 2030. The plan is to force 67% of car sales to be electric by 2032. Most Americans won’t be able to afford them, but they’ll have no other options. Even the cheapest electric cars, which are still far more expensive than their real car counterparts and are just one battery problem away from turning into mostly unusable junk, are out of the price range of the majority of Americans who need an income of $80,000 to make an EV auto loan work.
