Trading Power Abuses

Joe Biden and his band of radicals and tyrants have traded one form of control over people — using the pandemic — for another form of mass control using the climate. Same game, same agenda, same results.

Welcome to modern day Rome, where the state dictates all choices not the individual. If you prefer violence, it can always arrange that too.

And so Joey the traitor is going to make a proclamation about a climate emergency. Biden gave us a war on energy and now he wants to declare an emergency. He came up empty on his Mid-East ‘pump and dump’ tour, so back to executive abuse.

It seems the more we the people are hurting, the better leftists like it and the more they use it against us. Our pain is their gain. And when that pain comes directly from the Oval Office or federal government, all the better.

Add to this war on fossil fuels the raging inflation. Let the good times roll. Caesar on.

Mayor Pete the Butthole said the quiet part in Congressional testimony:

“The more pain we are all experiencing from the high price of gas, ​the more benefit there is for those who can access electric vehicles.”

So our pain is their gain; whether at the pump or grocery store, or home.

Bidens’s perfunctory meeting with the oil CEOs had no effect, by design. So now he resorts to his favorite tool he planned on all along: Abuse of Power — Democrats’ final solution.

Executive deliverance will now be performed across the country by proclamation. “We will create new and better ways for you to experience pain.” Move on over Rome!

Since Joe is such a moron, officials will try to entertain us while they torture the public. Remember when media told us, “these are serious people?”  We should be very impressed. (no private sector experience but serious) When they want you to feel pain, you will.

And physical abuse may be substituted for economic pain any time, just in case. Or some mixture of the two that persuades their message. It’s a “very serious” abuse of power.

Neil Oliver On GBN Calling A Spade A Spade

On July 9th, Neil Oliver of the Britain news agency unloaded a great commentary. You can read it here, but I expect the video (below) will be available later.

Neil Oliver – GBN  (excerpt)

“At some point in the past the governing class decided they were done with serving us and that they own us and rule us instead”

“The world is in a time of food insecurity and still governments would apparently prefer to contemplate a future in which people will suffer in every conceivable way. And in the future presently shaping up, people will most definitely suffer. Those governments are plainly not in the business of fixing anything, rather making matters worse.

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau – he that forcibly shut down the truckers’ protest in his own county and seized their bank accounts – has his country on a similar path to that of the Dutch. In a time of global food insecurity – blamed in part on war in Ukraine – ideologically driven administrations are stamping their metaphorical boots down upon their farmers’ backs.

In Holland, shots have been fired – allegedly by police, at one tractor. This is how basic things are becoming, how near the bone. Here in the west, in the 21st century, we are being prepared not just for a future without cars, but a future of less energy… less warmth… and even less food.

I knew there was something badly wrong with all that’s going on when I realised my response to what was happening, to all that we were being told, was physical. All of this actually makes me feel ill, to my bones. I have never in my life before listened to government policy – and to the policies of governments all around the world – and felt endangered. But I do now. If you feel that too – a deep physiological response to the last two years, and a growing sense of something malevolent – then you are not alone. Sometimes it feels like society itself has been poisoned – and that all that society is being offered is yet more poisonous nonsense.

We should notice that it is from among us, the ordinary people, that the farmers and the truckers come – so that it is we who really have the power that matters in the end.”

Politicizing Petroleum Policy

The Putin Russia invasion of Ukraine has exposed the tender underbelly where oil intersects public policy and where war intersects climate. But the Left simply forgets that oil and energy is a national security issue.

It is fruitless to even talk about hypocrisy anymore. But in the hearings with the big oil companies, it has gone further than just hypocrisy. Democrats want it both ways. They want immediate increased production but they make no bones they want to cut the oil market completely. Last year, they wanted massive cuts in oil and fossil fuel production. All to appease their radical left, climatology political agenda. 

Democrats don’t want to cut production, they want to eliminate it. Wipe it forever off the face of the earth. So while they cry now demanding more, they actually want zero.

But consumers know the basic fact very well of a market relying on supply and demand. They know that ultra high prices require more production to alleviate those high costs. Prices may appear out of control but the industry is increasingly more controlled by government and radical politicians.

The Democrats don’t mind begging from unfriendly dictators who don’t like us much. Actually, they gave them all that leverage over us for free.

The problem is there are environmental impacts of so-called renewables. They require minerals, mining and indeed have an affect on environment. Calling them “clean renewables” is an oxymoron. Plastics are another example of endless oil products. How many plastics are incorporated into their green-dream products? And you will have the same hoarding potential and environmental difficulties in ramping up renewable markets. We already see it around the world. The same departments that control and obfuscate the oil sector will plague the renewable sector. Government control does that.

For years, people railed against a government command economy — not to be confused with supply and demand markets –for exactly that reason. It sort of takes market problems out of the equation.

At one time maybe Democrats only lusted for full control of the oil industry, the way Putin controls it in Russia. Now they simply want to eliminate it altogether. Once upon a time we called it a war on coal, then it became a war on fossil fuels and evolved into a full-blown war on energy. They claimed that was not so, but now they  boast about a war against all fossil fuel energy.

Democrats talk out of both sides of their mouths; they want it both ways.

I listened to the hearings just to come away with one conclusion. If Democrats wanted to be lobbyists against big oil — for renewables — they could do that. But they are elected to Congress to represent the interests of the country. And if Joe Biden wanted to be a union organizer, like Obama, he could have been one. But that is not the job of the president.

Things that have made this country run and improved our lives for years, creating millions of jobs, are now preferred targets of society. They simply have no respect for how we got here. In fact, there is an effort to erase the entire roadmap. Well, there is always satire.

Paul Revere’s Ride

“Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-Five:
Hardly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day and year.”
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow – 1807-1882

But when Paul Revere rode out to alarm fellow countrymen, his horse emitted large amounts of waste in the process. Shouldn’t we factor in the age of the horse, with how much gas and waste it produced over its lifetime? Or how many people – white, black or Native Americans — who were negatively affected by these equestrian contributions? Must not we calibrate all those numbers into a new formula? Surely, based on a quick summary, we could see that the horse negatively impacted the environment, and humans, more than it benefited us all.

So it is long past time to take some retributive actions against these equestrian terrorists of the environment. Sure, the horse might have  made Paul Revere’s trip possible but at what calamitous cost to the earth? If we only knew or realized then what we now know , we could have prevented all that pain.

Paul — the meddling silversmith and industrialist he was — did not need to make his dumb trip for starters. And that asinine horse did not need to contribute to the “equitable” decay of our environment and climate, even for generations to come. This we can see clearly now because we have been awakened to the accumulative catastrophe of our deeds. 

We did all that. Why the hell were horses not taxed for their environmental impact? No, instead we encouraged their use. This only compounded the problems. So based on any summary analysis on the subject, I can therefore say the entire horse industry contributed to the decline in our climate. That’s just a fact. Anything we can do to eliminate it, and nip the damage in the tail, would only benefit our clean American future.

Revere should have relaxed, stayed home, euthanized the damn horse, and saved us all from our current fate. What a selfish bastard he turned out to be. Well, at least they could have increased the cost of horses to an unaffordable level so no idiot would have a chance to consider such a stunt, or misguided trip. ~~ Not so satirical end.


However, even more egregious with oil, they don’t want to just eliminate the industry, they want to politicize the entire industry. We’ve seen this in every government agency. Now they want to do the same thing to virtually every company, especially big oil.

How that shakes out is demonstrated in the hearings themselves. Democrats bring CEOs in to rip them apart and demand they do this or that. So it automatically pairs Republicans with oil companies. After all, we are the only ones who believe they should exist.

Democrats have accused the oil companies of manipulating the market prices and profiteering, taking advantage of crises and current events. Democrats’ answer to those charges and high prices is to release the SPRO to manipulate market prices.

The other obvious conclusion is this shows why we do not ever want government in complete control of our energy, or companies who provide it. One day they want to cut supply and the next they want it increased, based primarily on their political objectives. That’s the way they run everything else they control, immigration for instance.

So then, what would it take to get rid of exorbitant high fuel prices? Get rid of half of Congress that has a fatwa against the industry. Then replace a radicalized president who cares more about his family’s lucrative income than America’s national security.

The Putin Price Hike

I refuse to sit this one out. I can’t “resist” it. Mama didn’t raise no fools. It’s like fried chicken, it’s just so good.

On Tuesday, Biden and Jen Psaki did what we expected after Joe made his announcement to ban Russian oil. They spun it like tops.

Psaki said it was a Putin price hike. Biden said blame Putin for the prices. Tennessee “fried chicken” propagandist, Steve Cohen went out to tell people that every time they fill their tank in sticker shock, they should think of sticking it to Putin – as if redirecting the blame will help assuage it.

In other words, people should proudly feel the pinch knowing they are getting even with Putin. Right, they’ll show him while running up the old credit card to gas up. “Take that, Puty!” (what a feel good moment it is)

 

So I’ll take them up on that. Okay, I will blame him:

Putin has raised the price tag of electing Joe Biden President significantly.

He raised the real cost exponentially, which will be felt by every American up and down the economic ladder. I hope they are happy.

And now we have Joe Biden blaming Vladimir Putin for one of his own biggest problems, since gas lighting us evidently did not work.

More fossil fuels not fossil fools. And more chicken, please!

How Stupid Are They?

Is anyone still in doubt about how stupid Democrats and the Left really are?

Remember when you were a kid a great tagline was “how stupid can you get?” It was a good accusation or slam against any absurdity and stupidity. That meant something, it made a point. Wasn’t it great when things were obvious, no explanation necessary?

 

But today we are actually finding out how stupid you really can get. Democrats are determined to win any competition over it. I’m not even sure they take themselves seriously. I’m sorry; they do and that is the problem.

For Leftists, the root cause in everything always involves blaming America first. It is where they start and where they end. The issue doesn’t matter,  the problem is America. Anything that happens around the world becomes a result of something the US did.

So Democrats and Leftists, who already despise America, are looking for any way they can blame America for the world’s biggest problems. They claim everything is the result of some US policy while they create the worst policy, foreign and domestic, in history.

Then they have the audacity to blame everything on America’s policies. Actually they are incapable of making a good policy. Former Sec of Defense Robert Gates in his memoir said virtually every foreign policy decision or position Joe Biden ever made was wrong.

I know, let’s put him in charge and make Joe president then. Bright move!

I don’t think kids have to ask anymore how stupid can you get because they already know. They see it on school policy firsthand. Now the Left wants to double down on stupid school policy, if they have not done enough damage over 60 years already. If they weren’t trying to destroy education they could have fooled me.

 

How can you claim everything is the fault of US policy when you are creating the worst policy possible – against every warning given? Sound smart or like Team Dumb?

These people cannot stand putting America first, for whatever reason they hate it. But the default result of not putting America first is actively putting China and Russia first. They are willing to do it anyway making it even worse. That becomes their true-north position.

The stupidity part is how they got here, and yet stupidity is their ace-in-the-hole solution to fixing it all. Great strategy. So you ask how stupid can you get? They’re demonstrating it everyday. The big challenge is how to treat stupidity seriously as the problem it is?

Their answer is to keep going woke till it’s all broke.

The big hypocrisy and irony for Obama was having a doctrine of “don’t do stupid shit!”

Economic Death

Now a thought from my hairsplitting conscience. Fox is reporting in its latest poll that Biden’s approval on the economy is at 51%.

How can you get a 51% approval on an economy you are killing? It doesn’t square with anything. What stupidity!

Careful about polls, Rasmussen found that 55% support election audits, and election integrity efforts. You know, “to ensure there was no vote fraud.” And only 29% were opposed.

In-fra-structure

That sounds like some Greek fraternity. In reality, infrastructure as most people think it is pretty basic but does not include things like cross-gender studies or transgender education. Infrastructure is as infrastructure does. 

Only in Washington could they take something that is bipartisan and obvious and turn it into a hole to pour money into.

Both Democrats and Republicans have now put out a plan to address infrastructure. But Democrats seem to think it is anything they want.

Big spending has become a sacrosanct political opportunity.

My simple theorem is that the more big-spending they do the more lying and opportunities for it there are. It becomes an assault on truth.

I listened to some callers on Cspan about what is needed in their states relating to infrastructure. They varied but clearly the people interpret infrastructure as roads, bridges, electric grid, water and large projects related to basic needs. Liberals need to redefine terms as they go.

Can’t we, for once, stick to standard or traditional definitions? For instance, school lunches and changing diapers are not infrastructure. (and I don’t care how big a load an 8-month-old puts out daily.) Gender transitioning is not basic infrastructure.

Years ago I envisioned a truth in legislation act, which basically said bills should have to tell the truth about what it does. It has only gotten worse since then. Titles especially should reflect that notion. That definitely would not include re-imagined and redefined terms to suit ideology. Changing terms changes the purpose and intention. It ends up meaning anything.

Now Republicans have a bill focused on only real infrastructure. It has pay-fors in it instead of a blank big-spending bill. We’ll see where it goes. But there are no bridges to re-imagined terms in that one.

People’s Pipeline

When Biden says jobs….
the interpretation is Jo BS

Hey Joe, how many Jobs did you kill today?
Day six …

They should have named the Keystone XL Pipeline the People’s Pipeline because it was the pipeline to our future. It was an economic, community win. Who’s looking out for them?

Immediate job loss from day one.

So by rail it will be transported. And who is a big investor in rail? Soros, cha-ching.

Dangerous?

And Biden’s administration is looking at FEMA’s budget and wants to re-purpose up to 10 billion for Climate projects. America, are you listening?

Biden’s Plan of Doom

Case in point, Joe Biden’s latest tweet:

We need to meet the threat of climate change with the urgency it demands — and seize the opportunity to build back better. Tune in as I introduce members of my climate team who will get it done.”

Well, there you go. I only hope Pennsylvania is paying attention now.

So which word offends you more….. opportunity or seize?

I think we need to meet the threat of Joe Biden!

Nightmares Of Obama

In one brief moment yesterday, it all came rushing back to me about the many reasons we jettisoned Obama. But he ws back shouting his lectures again, to the voters.

Sure it took eight years to do it but looking back at that tells you all you need to know on how we got here. Thank goodness. It was a rough ride and now we are here.

Obama said a stupid, childish thing like “Tweeting at the TV is not going to fix things.” Referring to some caricature of Trump he envisions, I assume.

This from a man who talked and talked and talked and never did anything of value for people or the whole country.He stomped on their hopes, dreams and history.

  • Lecturing people was not going to fix things, Barry.
  • Politicizing the DOJ and FBI was not fixing things.
  • Tearing the country down was not fixing things.
  • Mocking and talking down to people was not fixing things.
  • Apologizing for a bad America was not fixing things.
  • Mocking and blaming Christians was not fixing things.
  • Runnning a clandestine surveillance on political opponents was not fixing things.
  • Using the IRS to attack political opponents was fixing nothing.
  • Constructing a coup on an incoming president was not fixing things.
  • Gutting our military was not fixing things,
  • Selling out America was not fixing things. (it was breaking thngs)
  • Writing unconstitutional dictates was not fixing things.
  • Refusing to cooperate with investigations was not fixing anything.
  • Instituting a war on energy was not fixing things.
  • Leading from behind was not going to fix things.

For a minute, all the shattered hopes and dreams were again visible. When all that mattered, once again, was that we hear soundbites from an angry man yelling at us. And yelling at America. He never liked America, it was abundantly clear. He despises us.

So he fixed nothing…..except our resolve. Thanks for nothing, Barack Hussein Obama.

Feeling The Bern

Unfortunately, not enough attention has been paid to Bernie’s ideas and campaign bling. Unfortunately, more attention must be paid to Bernie’s campaign. See the problem; who wants to do that? Not the media that’s for sure. And we conservatives could live without being carpet-bombed by Bernie juice 24/7, as depressing as that sounds.

However, it seems that some in the media are finally taking note of a Bernie campaign hallmark which media is calling the “Bernie Bros” problem, like online threats from Bernie supporters to silence or intimidate his other political opponents. Why the sudden concern? Because now he actually has some competition in the DNC. And because his supporters have seen this movie before and know how it ends. Call it bad blood or a family feud within the DNC. There is something for them to be paranoid about.

But Bernie’s campaign has always been dirty from the beginning. We know about it from 2016 in Chicago. We know how they operate in a cozy alliance with anarchists like Antifa. The Democrats usually love those operational tactics of the radical left when they are not targeted at them. But now they are. At least since the Bernie Bros tactics have gotten so prevalent against other Democrats, media is finally giving it some sorely needed attention. A little late. I mean this is what Bernie Bros do. In fairness, it is how Democrats in general operate. Just that Dems don’t like the threats and intimidation on themselves.

So on a Tuesday night town hall with Anderson Cooper, Bernie Sanders was finally asked directly about it. He magically condemns all bullying tactics, don’t you know? Bernie went into denial mode claiming he found some of those complaints, like those leveled by Culinary Union members, about threats hard to believe. To its credit, media have been reporting some of them. A lot of it happens online where Bernie Bros can single people out to attack them. Followed by other various forms of threatening contact. Face it, radicals are skilled in the art. But Hillary’s people were no angels on tactics in 2016 either. This time Bernie’s people are preemptively spoiling for a fight. Actually, radicals have learned these tactics work and have never been held to account for them, until now anyway.

That makes Bernie’s blanket denials and faux ignorance about it so laughable. He knows. Sanders told Anderson and the crowd that he found it hard to believe anyone in his campaign would do such things because his is the campaign of unions and much of their base is unions. It would not be possible. Then he branched out to other campaigns do bad things. He did go as far as condemning bullying. But we all know the Berie Bros’ tactics are used and incorporated in his campaign. We’ll see more of it this year into the convention. Democrats and media only seem to be waking up to feeling the real Bern of Bernie Bros.

On another matter, Bernie claimed in 2016 he received 25% of support from conservative Republicans. (from all conservatives or of his total support is unclear) He suggested getting more and thinks there is plenty of common areas. He said conservatives would probably agree with a 15-dollar minimum wage, prison reforms, his healthcare plans and funding college education. Really? But these hardly sound like any conservatives I know.

That could be his wishful perception. Socialists and commies typically resort to deception to get people to buy their ideas. And it requires a good illusionist to work the scam. When it all aligns the right way, they get willing dupes to sign on. The other key ingredient is using anger: at the system, at other people, at the rich, at institutional greed. That brings home the bacon. But it only works until the audience gets onto the gimmick. At that point, it requires cognitive denial of reality and then you are only along for the ride.

He also said he would win because of the largest voter turnout in history. Socialists and commies will deliver the largest voter turnout, take it to the bank — or from it?

So the Bernie Bro thing is real, and so are all the tactics. He continued on by bashing corporations and their ability to make money. He says he will hold them accountable. What does that mean, really? We know what it means in socialist or communist regimes. Work with the government or we’ll consider you an enemy of the state, and set about destroying your business, means — or both. (sounds like the the Bernie Bros’ campaign tactics.)

Then he talked about creating a big-government, FDR-type jobs plan in the aftermath of the sustainable new green deal’s economic slaughter. He doesn’t agree with welfare limits. He encourages more new teachers to have an influence on kids. He sees a day soon when no teacher makes less than 60k. Thanks to Bernie Bros. He can never hide the effects.

How about all those economic controls? Feel the burn!
If you aren’t feeling the burn yet, you just aren’t feeling.

I’m not crazy, just following the rules

I sort of wonder what is going on and what is next on the list today, since everything is now politicized anyway? It’s interesting to see what stuff Leftists come up with and how fast.

I think I’d like to play the game the way the Left does. Every time they do something I don’t like, we tell them the ocean just rose another 1/4 inch because of it. And yes, we did not yet switch to the metric system and we are still getting by. Thank goodness.

So every time they do something I don’t like, wham, tell them they just shortened their own life expectancy. They are costing the planet a few months. Can we keep that up?

Trump announced the government will no longer continue an agenda against light bulbs. You can buy the light bulbs you want. Well that should be a problem for Leftists. I wonder what fear they will hold over us for that? That just shaved 50 years off the life of earth.

What will Trump think up or do next? No wonder he is dangerous. He makes the Left think up all these crazy new threats based on what he does. So maybe they will tax thoughts next? Stop people from creating new ideas and thereby extend the life of the planet.

And to protest that new tax, I have an idea. They say solar flares are our next big problem. We should fight fire with fire. We build a machine that shoots flames at the flares to burn them up before they can harm anything. We’ll need fuel for it. How about we use those same self-sacrificing leftists for the fuel? That way we cure two problems at the same time. They do say they don’t want to live in a world with all this new innovation and its freedom going on. We’re ruining the planet. Anyway, I see more than enough fuel for the job.

Well, it’s either that or we just scare them to death with what we are going to do next. It doesn’t seem to take much. How else could I assist them in solving problems?

That reminds me, the twitterverse has been shrieking for a week over Trump’s comments about flushing WH toilets too much. Who knew conserving water was a problem to the left? Only when Trump tries it. Then he is like some crazy uncle saying “stop flushing the toilets all the time.” They’d rather see him as nuts than making sense… whatever that takes.

AOC Is Grief Stricken

The tears of a commie. I think what happened is AOC confused motherhood with mother earth and believes she is mother earth. Reminds me of an old margarine commercial.

AOC CRIES: Earth Facing ‘Extinction,’ ‘Dreams Of Motherhood Now Taste Bittersweet’

Daily Wire — Ryan Saavedra

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) cried on Friday during a climate alarmist speech in Copenhagen at the C40 World Mayors Summit where she claimed that her “dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet because of what I know about our children’s future.”

Ocasio-Cortez began her alarmist speech by claiming that humanity was at a crossroads of “extinction or opportunity,” adding that there is “no middle road” on climate policy.

“The climate crisis is already here,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed. “On this note I speak to you not as an elected official or public figure, but I speak to you as a human being — a woman whose dreams of motherhood now taste bittersweet because of what I know about our children’s future, and that our actions are responsible for bringing their most dire possibilities into focus. I speak to you as a daughter and descendant of colonized peoples who have already begun to suffer.”

“It is not a coincidence that these disasters get relatively little media coverage, and that even less of the coverage dares to mention climate change,” Ocasio-Cortez falsely claimed. Media coverage of natural disasters often get significant coverage, with “climate change” being one of the top points parroted by the media.

“It is not a coincidence that the truth is controversial,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “None of this is a coincidence because climate change is not a coincidence or a scientific anomaly. Climate change is a consequence. It is a consequence of our unsustainable way of life.”

Ocasio-Cortez then suggested that capitalism promotes “lawbreaking pursuit of profit” and that capitalism only benefits “the very few,” despite the fact that capitalism has lifted more people out of extreme poverty than any other economic system.

Ocasio-Cortez then admitted that her far-left $93 trillion plan is really about “chang[ing] society” and “winning” in politics, and that the desired outcomes are to fix “injustice” and promote “equality.”

This is similar to what Ocasio-Cortez’s former chief-of-staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted during an interview.

The Washington Post reports:

Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate thing at all.” [Sam Ricketts, climate director for Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D)] greeted this startling notion with an attentive poker face. “Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?” Chakrabarti continued. “Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” [emphasis added]

Article posted at Daily Wire

Well, no middle of her road. I’m not sure she is qualified to speak as a human being. All that Marxist stuff running through her veins would sort of contradict that.

No coverage on the “climate crisis?” That’s all they talk about. The MSM cannot cover a legitimate natural disaster without making it about climate change or Global Warming.

No, it’s not a coincidence or scientific anomaly …. it is pure politics and socialism, about defying all our freedoms and rights. They admit it isn’t about climate change; it’s about their agenda. So what are the consequences of that agenda?

What is really “unsustainable” is their socialist agenda and the supporting government for it. But it doesn’t look like anyone will address that problem soon enough.

Right on the heals of AOC’s statement, Bernie says Elizabeth Warren may be a “capitalist in her bones, but I’m not.” Nope, he’s a commie and past the socialist garden long ago. But he has it exactly backwards. Socialism only benefits few ringmasters, the puppet masters. It is meant to be a transformational thing — to our politics and economy. And they don’t really care about the dire consequences on either of them.

In a few years it will be “the day the music died” — her music and Bernie’s pied piper tune. I’m also wondering if she could be a poltergeist?

It is us who are in the real fight to save ourselves and country from the doom and gloom of AOC and her tribe of commie buddies. That’s a challenge. Why does that thought of someone calling AOC a mom bother me so much?

So maybe I have a little surprise for AOC and her commie pals. There are some things we ain’t ever going to see. And your socialist plans are right at the top of the list.

Morality of the Beast

It’s a strange new world, and the religion of the left has taken center stage.

AOC lectures us about the morality of Climate Change, while they joyfully push for late-term abortion even infanticide as hard as they can. But we are the deniers?

Reality check! Toto, we’re not in Kansas anymore.
Politics of evil.

Climate Of Religion

What we have seen is the overt politicization, weaponization and religiosity of the climate, or climate change, and the propagandizing of it. It should be no surprise that they politicized it to the max. That’s why so many people are outraged. But that was only the first step. Then they weaponize the climate, against the people of course.

Then they use the climate as the apocalyptic fear-mongering vehicle

When even the former head of Green Peace has to go on Hannity and call out the apocalypse hysteria of the Left, we are in a strange place.

He actually said that if we do the fossil full elimination they are calling for, it would decimate civilization. Or maybe that is what they want? He also said that our coal fired consumption is about 90% cleaner than it was decades ago.

But he said that today we still rely on fossil fuels for 80% of our electricity. Apparently they didn’t realize that when they tell us they want to switch to electric cars. Imagine the reaction when they all plug them in.

But they are telling us something with these Big Green Plans. They show us it is a religious movement now, full stop. The former Green Peace guy said what they are doing in incorporating kids into their message is equal to child abuse. Well, it should be criminal. The same person also said that the direction they are taking it, including using children (and emotions), is just to push their radical socialism or social justice platform.

I guess they don’t realize that we see exactly what they are doing. They turned it into a political issue, weaponized it, then made it a religious one. And they now feel comfortable turning that weapon on anyone they need to propel their political agenda.

Wouldn’t you think using and scaring kids would be a bit over the top? Not for them. In fact, it is right up their alley. The same way they have been using kids in their socialized healthcare schemes. Just roll out the children. What’s next, having children lobby and protest for late term abortion rights? Don’t be surprised.

As I said some time ago: is there anything too radical and extreme even for Democrats? Not anymore. Remember Claire McKaskill let the dirty secret out of the bag in the campaign, before she lost? She said those are the crazy Democrats and she was not one of them. But now that the election is over and AOC has taken over the party, with an assist from Bernie Sanders, it looks like they are telling us loud and clear that really all Dems are crazy Democrats. That’s the way it works.

We used to hear them say on the campaign that they would not be a lockstep vote, and they were independent minded, and that they would represent the people. Remember Trump called them out at rallies and said if they get in, they will only be Pelosi puppets and vote in lockstep. Rubber stamps. Again, Trump was completely right. But it only took a few short weeks for that to happen and prove it.

Bottom line is these people are not at all about preventing a catastrophe, they are all about creating one. And the faster they get there, the better. Have kids believe that the world is going to incinerate. We used to hide under desks in schools, remember. Now just tell them it is over. So we might as well blow through a hundred trillion dollars trying because it’s a lost cause unless. Unless they can save planet earth from destruction. Well, I wonder what kept planet earth from destruction years ago before they came along? They sort of sound like a revised version of Heaven’s Gate people over the Hale-Bopp Comet.

It does show us something. That the climate change and socialists, besides getting in bed with each other, are reading from the same script. It is all about belief. It is only based on that. Throw in a few anecdotes and current events to make your case, then round up the kids and give them their lines. Send them out to the public and watch people get sucked in. Or so goes the plan. However, what it really is based on is belief.(echoes of Obama) Have enough people to believe it and you can even summon a Hale-Bopp comet to come and rescue them. And they are betting all their marbles, and our money, on it.

Music And Politics Sitting In A Tree

But let me start off with a made to order joke. Bless their little young hearts.

Sometimes I get a kick out of young people today, their naiveté still intrigues me. Even though they often seem ignorant of basic history. That is not all their fault.

So one day I was in a fast food place. The employees were having this discussion about the upcoming 50th anniversary of Woodstock. I couldn’t help listening because I was not doing anything except standing there waiting for my order.

All three of the guys were fairly young, and the only women was about middle-aged. She appeared to be schooling them on Woodstock, odd as that seemed to me at the time.

Then the one young guy ask her impatiently “well, was Hip Hop going on then, too, were they doing that?” I couldn’t resist cutting in to say, “they hadn’t even put those two words together yet” and I chuckled. They all looked at me with their upper wheels turning.

I looked at the guy who asked and said “ Man, they barely knew what rock and roll was back then. They were still breaking it in.” But then I saw his big eyes and knew that went right over his knowledge base and sailed into the deep. I smiled and walked away.

Dummy me, I thought maybe a joke would illustrate the point and further their discussion. But instead it ended it and left me wondering if it was my delivery that failed? And if it was some generational thing I crossed? At least I thought it was funny, they will probably never know if it was true, funny… or both?

Joined At The Hip

Say what you will about the original Woodstock which stole headlines some 5 decades ago this year. Those discussions are still going on, as I can testify. Organizers are planning a 50th anniversary to the Woodstock concert this year. But déjà vu all over again.

The original site in Bethel, NY has plans for an anniversary to memorialize the Max Yasgur Farm concert in ’69 and has already booked one top headliner, Carlos Santana.

But Michael Lang, one of the original promoters, has planned what he claims is the only original sanctioned anniversary celebration, which he announced will be in Watkins Glen, NY. In that one, political activism and sustainability will be a central theme for the event. And no doubt for the “woke” as well.

Not only is he drafting top talent, but also encouraging their political activism for the event too. So is this where Farm Aide and Woodstock exchange vows and officially tie the knot, joined in a river of political activism? No matter what the location, it will be billed as Utopia. Who knows if the National Anthem will even be allowed in this one? (old reference to Jimmie Hendrix) Or if maybe the Black Bloc and Antifa will do security for the event?

Take it from Lang himself: (CBS News January 11, 2019)

The festival will also evoke its predecessor through activism, with sustainability efforts and screenings, panels and art installations by non-profit organizations. “The Woodstock 50th Anniversary will be about sharing an experience with great artists and encouraging people to get educated and involved in the social issues impacting everyone on the planet,” said Lang.

“”We want this to be more than just coming to a concert,” Lang told The New York Times. “And hopefully a lot of the bands will become part of this effort to get people to stand up and make themselves heard, to get out [and] vote. And if they don’t have a candidate that represents their feelings, to find one — or to run themselves.”

From coming to sexual awareness to coming to political wokeness. Is that where mud baths come in? Is it where the white rabbit has a coup over the enchanted forest?

Okay, so music, history, or anniversary may not be the real motivation here. Political priorities, you know. No word whether any of the up and comers in presidential candidates are booking the event. They could have hours of speeches to a captive audience if they go all out. How nostalgic would that be? I don’t recall that was the message of Woodstock but that was then and this is now. What better place to grease the skids for socialism?

And now, being the radicalized leftist culture it is, supposedly on the rise, I can see it “and now a word from our movement icon, Bernie Sanders.” To which the crowd roars to their feet and gives him a fifteen minute standing ovation.

That could only be followed by another speech from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez bringing home the Socialism message. And Michael Moore applauding waiting in the wings.

If you were one of the headliner bands, how on earth could you follow that bad acid trip? It also has me wondering what would be the definition of “success” for such a grand event? I guess you measure it in political success and, of course, by fundraising totals.

So Woodstock….you are finally 50, now how about growing the f*** up?

New Oil Discovery

Now we’re talking. Let’s see Obama take credit for this, since he can’t block it.

Largest Oil and Gas Reserves Ever Assessed Found in West Texas

Breitbart — by Merrill Hope  —  Dec 7, 2018

The U.S. Department of the Interior announced Thursday the Permian Basin’s Wolfcamp shale and Bone Spring formation spanning parts of West Texas and eastern New Mexico hold the largest potential oil and gas resources ever discovered. Federal surveyors note the Bone Spring plays could offer roughly seven times the amount of oil as the Bakken shale in North Dakota.

In a new assessment, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) estimated these untapped regions in the Delaware Basin of the Permian contained 46.3 billion barrels of oil, 281 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, and 20 billion barrels of natural gas liquids, more than two times larger than its 2016 assessment of the Wolfcamp shale play in the Permian’s Midland Basin.

“Christmas came a few weeks early this year,” said U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke in a prepared statement. “American strength flows from American energy, and as it turns out, we have a lot of American energy.” Zinke added, “Before this assessment came down, I was bullish on oil and gas production in the United States. …../

If liberals cannot find grounds to condemn the news, then they’ll go out of their way to ignore it. But they won’t be happy because these days all that excites them is doom.

Yet they wonder why we need pipelines and infrastructure development for it. Or they will be back to talking about taking over and socializing oil companies.

I figure the next thing is if Dems can’t find ways to block any good news, or turn it rotten, they’ll try to tax it somehow. It could be called the “good news tax”. I wouldn’t doubt it.

US Largest Global Crude Producer

Now here is something the left probably never wanted to be number one at.

San Antonio Business Journal

Sep 12, 2018, 2:46pm CDT Updated 2 days ago Production in the nation’s shale basins has helped the U.S. surpass Russia and Saudi Arabia to become the world’s largest crude oil producer, preliminary figures from the Energy Information Administration show.

American exploration and production companies are now producing an estimated 10.9 million barrels of crude oil per day, according to the EIA’s latest Short-Term Energy Outlook report released on Wednesday. Based on preliminary data, EIA officials believe that crude oil production in the U.S. surpassed Saudi Arabia in February and surpassed Russia twice — once in June and again in August.

The figures mark the first time that domestic crude oil production has surpassed Saudi Arabia in more than two decades. Although the EIA does not publish crude oil production forecasts for Russia and Saudi Arabia, the agency expects that U.S. crude oil production will continue to exceed that of Russia and Saudi Arabia through 2019.

Oops, the energy denier crowd is not going to like that. The second part of the oil issue is why the rise in gas prices? Now that sanctions will be back on Iran, it will be another excuse for higher oil prices. Though when they dropped Iran sanctions, the only beneficiary was Iran and a few of its trading partners. Of course on the left they would enjoy sky high gas and energy prices. At least for the time being congrats to US anyway.

MSM ignores any real news to beat the Russian Bear

Holding fast to conspiracy narratives pushed by Hillary Clinton (and her campaign of trolls) on Russia meddling, misogyny, racism that cheated her out of her destined Ovalating Office. Unfortunately, she is right, that media will follow her lead every time. While she and the entrenched media establishment are baited and trolled by Russia. They would take career Russian propagandists word or version of events over Trump’s almost every time.

It’s really easy if you are in the Kremlin hell-bent on sowing discord in America. If destroying credibility in American institutions is their goal, then the Left hands them a victory flag. So even when Trump goes to Poland to make a classical academic defense of western civilization, especially then, they have a collective panic attack and cannot recover. But intensive care could not treat their disease.

Then came his next trip to France with liberal Macron, their macaroni boy of Paris they fell for head first. This time MSM decided to downplay coverage of the visit ignoring most of the ceremony, except the presser to push Russia questions. Even the centennial of WWI and France’s Bastile Day got marginal coverage. Jake Tapper called it just a photo-op for Trump. Right a 100 year anniversary is just a photo-op , world history just gets in the way. After all, that is the way they see it.

So now, once again, another historical marker pops up that media seems too preoccupied with Russian propaganda to notice — or give due diligence to. It’s like you have this Russian spy novel playing out in the background to obfuscate any real news.

US Has Produced More Oil Than Saudi Arabia For 4 Straight Years [GRAPH]

Daily Caller

Saudi Arabia has lagged the U.S. in oil production for the last four years, according to federal data compiled by University of Michigan economist Mark Perry.

Perry created a chart Saturday showing just how far behind Saudi oil production has trailed U.S. production. Rising U.S. production combined with OPEC policies drove crude oil prices down to new lows. Monday, a barrel of oil costs $46.26, while the same barrel would have sold for $109.04 in June 2014.

U.S. oil production, on the other hand, is increasing. The U.S. imported about 60 percent of its oil in 2007, but by 2014, the country only imported 27 percent of its oil — the lowest level since 1985. Rising oil production has reduced demand for Saudi oil abroad too, keeping prices low.

Saudi Arabia can likely handle cheap oil better than other Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) nations, but cheap oil is still devastating the country.

And yet they wonder why we call MSM Fake News? Everything positive — as they define it — about their messiah’s golden throne was heralded from the mountaintops to make sure it echoed to anyone. It was unavoidable. They ran his Saturday addresses to tout all the great, but invisible, good news. It was good because they said so. Job numbers, even when bad, were called good. Or, as the Bible says, “those who call evil good and good evil.” And it worked, or saturated the airwaves to a point no one else could be heard.

Spending, national debt, budget issues. Remember Obamafiles claimed he halved the budget ‘deficit’ to cover the 2o trillion dollar explosion. The fairy dust worked, put some lipstick on that pig and sell it like the sweety-pie lie it is. He depleted the military, and budget, but who cares about that thing? All is good, they said. ‘These are the good times.’ Never mind that you did not see or feel it. You weren’t alone though. Most didn’t, still you had to listen to regurgitated talking points of how great things were going.

No, we weren’t wrong. Our instincts were not misguided. We weren’t misinformed. We were not too stupid to understand. We were not uneducated halfwits. We were just being constantly lied to on such a level, to such a degree, that Americans never were subjected to before. Even low information voters knew something was wrong. Economists, real ones that is, were not impressed. But even they had a hard time getting any information out. It was all being blurred, blotted out, and intentionally drown out by the so-called good news coming directly from, and being dictated by, the White House.

But it was all good in those days and there were no questions to ask, because no questions were necessary. Just report the White House talking points, life was easy for reporters. Obama would even tell press what stories they think should be covered, and what stories they didn’t think deserved time.

Guess what happened?

Remember Benghazi, IRS, Lois Lerner, or Fast and Furious? Leading from behind was actually a defense strategy they could get behind. Meaningless red lines were all the rage. Russian intervention? It really is not intervention when you are inviting them into Syria and altering your national policy to their liking and getting nothing in return. Of course that is not intervention. That is failed US leadership like we never experienced before either. It was complicit failure. Now they are paranoid about intervention? They opened the door, invited them in, coalesced with them. Is it any surprise Russia wasn’t the greatest or most respectful house guests, when Obama shows no respect for our own house?

Then, to top it all off, when Obama left he had them all declare that he had a completely scandal-free administration, not even a little one. Remember that? So it was an insult on reason and intelligence. It was a fraud. Obamacare was created, built and sold on lies. They named it the Affordable Care Act.

The article above, while it is good news to be ignored under Trump, will likely be co-opted for propaganda value by Obamafiles — who are just as active outside the Office as they were in the White House. So they are quite anxiuos to take credit for anything good. It is what they do. Though our growth and oil business in particular was in spite of Obama’s war on energy, not because of it. But that doesn’t stop them from laying claim.

Anyone dishonest enough to prop up Obama’s regime for 8 years is certainly going to use any dirty trick to that end, to credit Obama with a net positive. A guy like Obama that never had to live under or feel the effect of his own policies. Calling evil good was quite popular, getting even easier with practice. It was instant revision everywhere.

So now that we have oil production growth, who do you think can find fault with our achievement? That’s right, the same people who will gladly try to lay credit to it. But the Left’s “green” team will condemn it as a negative. Oil, fossil fuels is bad juju. Which is why we knew Obama was never supportive to the industry. Yet he wants credit? In your dreams, Obama. And if America was not as innovative, like we’ve always been, this could not have happened. Certainly it was nothing Obama had a hand in.

However, we shouldn’t be afaid to admit good news, because some of it took place under Obama’s tyranny. It began and was under way before him. Like Clinton had the benefit of the tech boom. But Obama did about everything he could to step on it.

Under Trump, all good news will be summarily buried, or tortured by Obama revisionists if it refuses stay in the hole. Since the Left controls the media, that is the way it is. And whatever they can tie to Obama’s Legacy of Lies, they will. Memory Lane is not a place I’d want to live, if I were Obama

Sneak attacks from Paris Accord train

I read this op-ed in the NYT, preferred toilet tissue for those in the know. However, it does pay to see what they say once in a while, even with a jaundice eye and flexing eyebrows.

The Times Editorial Board describes Trump’s jump off the Paris Accord train as “America in Retreat.” But then it does it while a terrorist attack goes down in London. See there is no time that is not a good time to attack Trump. And that is all it was.

You would think it might be laced with the benefits of staying in the Paris Accord. No, it was only a criticism for leaving it. How dare you. But it failed to mention any benefits that we would get out of it.

Sure, we know the world gains from US being in it. They want our money. Another Globul scheme that we will chiefly fund. Excuse me, aren’t we having those problems in other world organizations? So no painful losses for us bailing out of the latest Globul scheme.

Their biggest point was that we are shirking, or ceding, our leadership by fleeing from it. That’s the big problem, and that is reprehensible to their ideological view.

We just got rid of a president who believed in leading from behind, who was all for this agreement, but somehow we are foregoing our leadership by withdrawing? In all his twisted foreign policy failures, Obama never once put America first and certainly did not prove his theory correct. He gained nothing from all the apologies he spouted from Cairo to Russia. Yet now we are abandoning our leadership position? Even at home he did not put the will of the people or our priorities first. Instead, he set his priorities of green energy first at the expense of everything else, and wasted countless millions on programs that didn’t work or went belly up, along with our money. Then he branded it a success.

(NYT) Still, Mr. Trump and his team, embroiled in controversy over Russia and other matters, have shown no inclination, much less skill, to do the hard thinking that must precede any decision to alter America’s role in the world.

So right on the heels of having given the world a tragedy of an Iran deal, which benefited Iran, Obama headed straight down his homestretch to get into a Paris Deal that offered nothing but another giant expense for us. That, he claimed, was leadership. Setting up any global slush fund is now called leadership — the bigger the better.

But we were always supposed to be cautious of foreign entanglements that threaten our sovereignty. That is exactly why Obama and the left like to dabble in them so much.

Perfect example: it didn’t take long, when Trump was contemplating the withdraw from the Paris accord, for media and press to ramp up means that you would not have thought possible. Yes, they insisted that to withdraw from the Paris treaty — can we now at least call it that — was, in fact, a threat to our sovereignty. Oh yes they did! Every reason we gave for withdrawing they tried to reverse to make it a reason we should stay in it.

The exact opposite of their rhetoric was true. It was a treaty masquerading as an executive order. If it was so popular they would have had no problem getting Senate approval, which they wouldn’t do because it would not pass. It was the same Constitutional principle they avoided on the Iran deal. Yet they went ahead and did it anyway.

Now they claim we are giving up our sovereignty by withdrawing. But no one explains why that is true, just like they don’t explain all the benefits of staying in. Other countries had to do nothing. So they, namely the left, are angry because there is no replacement for our funding. Their claim is that without us in the treaty everyone else is going to reap the benefits now. But they were the ones who were going to benefit anyway.

It is just one more deal which doesn’t consider America’s priorities. Yet they lie and say getting out does not preserve our priorities, it threatens them. Then there is Democrats’ universal closing argument for everything that “people are going to die.”

Ironically, the only thing that seems to usurp media’s attacks on Trump are intermittent terrorist attacks that the world has no immediate answers to. So maybe if their Paris plan was framed as a terrorist plot, would they finally see the error in it — or at least the drawbacks? Or probably not even that would alter their Globul perspective. It’s futile.
