Whales Die, While Officials, Media, and
Environmentalists Lie

In Strathmere, New Jersey, the morning of December 10, 2022, began on a somber note. A dead whale weighing an estimated twenty tons was spotted offshore, soon moved by tide and waves to the shoreline where beachgoers took photos and videos. (Snip) The young humpback became part of a movement that began with the asking of a question: What is killing the whales and dolphins? Along the Jersey Shore, several companies, including Atlantic Shores (owned jointly by oil and gas titan Shell and the French-based utility company EDF) and Danish-based Orsted, are mapping the ocean floor—the first step toward construction of hundreds of mammoth offshore wind turbines.


Republican New Jersey officials are opposing this project while Democrats and environmental groups approve it because it's worth killing lots of whales and dolphins to end fossil fuel use. However, fossil fuel companies are allowed and ready to use the same area to drill in, as part of the "Inflation Reduction" Act and in the leases of the underwater land from the federal government. The Green nonprofits are probably making money out of this, and to hell with scenic shorelines and marine mammal life.

There is an old saying: "The end justifies the means." The environmentalists want solar farms and windmills. They could care less about what happens to the whales or birds or those bad conservative Republicans.

I happened to watch an older beachfront property program yesterday that was pushing beach houses on the Jersey shore. There is going to be a bunch of disappointed people who bought homes for the ocean view in Jersey.

Ocean wind turbines were madly installed before ANY "environmental impact" studies were performed. American companies can't dig a 2 foot trench for buried cable or pipeline without enviro-MENTAL whackos filing lawsuit after lawsuit demanding such studies. Those massive bird choppers are known to vibrate and cause low frequency droning on and on which will be transmitted to the water below. Water is an incredibly good transmission medium for sound, which is how whales and dolphins navigate. It's no wonder so many of them are going crazy and beaching themselves in an effort to commit suicide. Humans are prone to madness too after the "green energy" wind turbine moves next door and begins moaning "for the good of humanity."

These Green idiots are nothing but hypocrites, playing God. We can't have fossil fuels but they have no problem flying in private jets, traveling on huge yachts, and living in mansions. They get to decide who lives and dies. Screw the whales, dolphins and birds!

These elitist environmentalists only care about green energy because there is a lot of money in it: federal subsidies, etc. They do not (and never) care about golden eagles, birds and bats slaughtered by wind turbines or baked by sun farms. They don't care about whales and dolphins and other marine life, but blame dead whales on the lobster industry. I don't recall the installation of off shore oil rigs causing whale deaths. Hmmm And I do not want any Republican running for President to tell me he/she supports "all of the above" approach to energy. We have more than enough naturally occurring fossil fuels that we do not need any boutique fuel like sun or wind. And if anyone wants solar or wind - NO subsidies. Pay for it yourself. The article didn't mention another huge off shore wind project under development. The Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind farm - 27 miles off the shores of Virginia Beach. Thank you ex Governor Blackface Northam and a Dem controlled state legislature.

Proposed for off of Long Beach Island NJ............205 windmills EACH 1000 feet tall ( the height of the Eiffel Tower ) with a blade diameter of 450 - 600 feet. To be situated 9 miles out ( the horizon is at 12 miles) , their noise will be heard by those on shore, they will disrupt the winds and breezes that go to the shore changing the weather for those on the land. The will be strung with red danger lights at night . This is the on purpose murder of our coastline , the fish, the fishing industry, the whale and dolphins.

Excuse 2nd post but as #7 pointed out, these favored companies get waivers on any protected birds, whale, etc that their utilities kill - just like the feds have done for years with the wind farms out west and mid-west - kill as many golden eagles as you can and no penalty or a very small one, but you're a single person on a farm and accidentally kill a golden eagle and it's large fines and possible jail time.

A week before its attack Hamas agreed to another truce with Israel. The agreement negotiated by Qatar, Egypt and the United Nations traded an end to border attacks for more imports, a bigger fishing zone and more work permits that allowed 20,000 Gaza Muslims to enter Israel. The agreement reached between Yom Kippur, the holiest day in the Jewish calendar, and Sukkot, the conclusion of the High Holy Days season, offered an end to the explosives and rocks being hurled at Israeli soldiers on the border and the incendiary balloons starting fires on Israeli farms. And terrorist attacks on civilians like the murder of Batsheva Nigri: a kindergarten teacher shot

It is perhaps the fate of startling wisdom to become a repeated cliche. This is certainly what has happened to Arendt’s formulation regarding the ‘banality of evil’. What was a remarkable insight into the mediocrity and insignificance of men capable of astonishing evils (and hence the capacity of anyone of us to do the same) gradually became part of the furniture of discussions on totalitarianism. And like furniture, we would sit on it without paying it much attention. So yes, we all knew that Himmler was a failed chicken farmer. We all knew that much of the architecture of evil was conducted by little grey men with little grey souls.

Propagation of myths has consequences. Let us examine a couple. Myth 1. The State of Palestine This so-called state is like Brigadoon, with two exceptions: a. It never appeared. b. It refuses to go away. Neither a country nor a state of Palestine has ever existed. The Kingdom of Judah is named after Judah, the fourth son of Jacob and Leah. (Snip) The Kingdom of Judah lasted for about 350 years, until it was conquered by the Babylonians. However, the Jewish people eventually returned to their homeland, and they rebuilt their community in Judea. We are dealing here with the land of the Jews.

On the first Monday of each October, the U.S. Supreme Court begins hearing cases for its new term. There’s no doubt that the decisions reached there reverberate throughout the country. But as Chief Judge Jeffrey Sutton, who serves on the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals reminded everyone in his book, 51 Imperfect Solutions, state constitutions provide many rights and remedies not available under the U.S. Constitution, and that state courts are charged with interpreting and enforcing those rights.

When the federal government is looking for qualified persons to vet asylum seekers, where would you look? For the Biden administration, it seems they thought a good place was in the bowels of a terrorist organization that Trump kicked out. Somehow, they believe that a former spokesperson from the PLO is well qualified. Nothing better than plucking a person from an organization that wants to snuff out America and Israel to decide who should be allowed to come to the U.S. What could go wrong?

Among the litter of guns, korans, and maps discarded by the Hamas terrorists whose bodies lie alongside bullet-riddled vehicles and dusty roads are green Gaza IDs with work permits. Normally residents of the Hamas territory can’t enter Israel, but work permits allowed over 20,000 Gazans to enter Israel. When some returned, it was as Hamas rapists and killers. The Hamas invasion succeeded so well because the terrorists had an intimate knowledge of the communities they were targeting because they had worked there or had intelligence from those who had worked there. The attackers had detailed maps and building layouts. One woman whose husband and son were murdered said

Nikki Haley is slowly rising in the Republican presidential primary polls. She put in good performances in the first two RNC debates and it is starting to pay off. Haley and the other Republicans running in the primary have been slow to criticize Trump or draw sharp distinctions between his record and what they pledge to do in office. That’s a problem when the frontrunner, Trump, is so far ahead in the polls. Haley spoke out in Las Vegas on Saturday at the Republican Jewish Coalition annual summit.

A Post examination of Open Society Foundations records shows Soros’ grant-making network gave $13.7 million of the money through Tides Center, a deep-pocketed lefty advocacy group that sponsors several nonprofits who’ve justified Hamas’ bloody attacks while claiming Palestinians obsessed with the eradication of the Jewish state are the real victims.

If you want an indicator of how lost Western civilization has become, go to your kids’ school and check their rules on fighting. Most likely, you’ll find out if two kids get into a fight, both get suspended, regardless of whether one was a punk bully who started it and the other was simply defending himself or some little kid. This is a moral disaster, of course – violence in the defense of what is right is a moral obligation and a symbol of a greater rot within society.

Secretary of State Antony Blinken contends that Hamas would gain no “greater” victory “than allowing its brutality to send us down a path of terrorism and nihilism. We must not let it.” You can hear echoes of Barack Obama’s insufferable moral equivalencies imbued in that statement. The contention is a not-so-subtle warning to Israel, who will almost surely enter Gaza and try to dismantle the Hamas terror state — which has been indirectly and directly funded not only by Iran, the European Union, and the United Nations but also by the Obama and Biden administrations. The insinuation, of course, is that Israel needs to temper its inclination to engage in “terrorism and nihilism.

Gay forthrightly admitted that Harvard has an anti-Semitism problem: Here in the U.S., we are witnessing a surge in anti-Jewish incidents and rhetoric across the nation — and on our own campus. The ancient specter of antisemitism, that persistent and corrosive hatred, has returned with renewed force. A recent ADL report found that incidents of antisemitism had almost tripled over the past six years nationally. Here at Harvard, I’ve heard story after story of Jewish students feeling increasingly uneasy or even threatened on campus.
