POLITICAL: End “fossil fuels” is to end airline travel — absurd!

Will Anyone Actually Like It if Biden Ends Fossil Fuels?
By Chris J. Krisinger

*** begin quote ***

President Biden’s avowed intention to “end fossil fuel” is — puns intended — an economic crash waiting to happen, and not just for air travel. For this nation and Americans to continue to derive the benefits of air travel, the president and his administration’s hostility toward the vital role fossil fuels will continue to play in this nation’s future must be permanently “grounded.”

Like the recent Pepuls Republik of Kaliforkneeah diktat to end gas cars follow by another diktat not to charge them, here’s a path to ending air travel.

ECONOMICS: Biden buys votes with student loan forgiveness

Somebody Has to Pay for Student Loan Forgiveness
August 24, 2022 by Michael Maharrey

*** begin quote ***

President Biden is expected to announce student loan forgiveness on Wednesday (Aug. 24). The plan will reportedly cancel $10,000 in student loan debt for anybody making less than $125,000 per year.

A lot of people think this is like waving a magic wand — poof — the debt is gone. But somebody has to pay and that somebody is the American taxpayer.

Nothing the government does is free. Ultimately, student loan debt forgiveness will add to the already massive budget deficit. That means Uncle Sam will have to borrow more money that taxpayers will have to repay, either in higher taxes or the inflation tax.

And we know who all pay — the Taxpayers.

The economy will have more inflation to deal with and the moral hazards keep piling up!

LIBERTY: Destroying the “deep state” should be job 1 for any freedom lover

The Next President Must Prioritize Destroying the Deep State
Opinion Jonathan Bronitsky, Co-Founder, ATHOS
On 8/10/22 at 6:30 AM EDT

*** begin quote ***

At CPAC in Dallas this past weekend, former President Donald Trump asserted that a “key priority for the next Congress and the next president will be to drain the swamp, once and for all.” Then, reiterating a point made in a keynote address to the America First Policy Institute last month, he specified that Congress “should pass groundbreaking reform empowering the president to ensure that any federal employee who is corrupt, incompetent, or unnecessary for the job can be told, ‘You’re fired.'”

Such legislation would essentially formalize and strengthen President Trump’s Executive Order 13957, which President Joe Biden rescinded during his first week in office. But there’s a problem: The chance of even a Republican-controlled Congress carrying out this type of reform is close to zero.

You see, Congress itself created—and, indeed, has since protected and bolstered—the Deep State, so there’s little reason to believe it would now reverse course and eliminate it. A few decades ago, members of the legislative branch began delegating their constitutional lawmaking authority to the myriad federal agencies that constitute the executive branch. (Incidentally, no one knows the exact number of entities that make up the branch. The best estimate is somewhere around 400. Four-hundred!)

*** end quote ***

It seems clear to me that until the “Deep State” is neutered, none of us can be free.

Hopefully. “We, The Sheeple” will be outraged at the politicization of the the various three letter agencies (TLAs) that run our lives.

One can only hope.

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Biden to allow abortions by executive diktat?

Who Knew That The Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Protects A Right To Abortion?
The Biden Administration is about to walk into another eviction moratorium debacle.
Josh Blackman | 7.19.2022 11:15 PM

*** begin quote ***

Politico reports that the Biden Administration has potentially settled on an executive-action response to Dobbs:

White House officials plotting the administration’s post-Roe response are weighing a narrow public health directive aimed at safeguarding nationwide access to abortion pills, three people familiar with the discussions told POLITICO.

The Biden team has zeroed in on that authority in recent days. They consider it the most feasible of the White House’s limited options for protecting abortion rights, and have concluded that it could have the most immediate on-the-ground impact while also quelling Democrats’ demands for stronger action. . . .

The proposal would rely on powers under the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness (PREP) Act reserved for public health emergencies to shield doctors, pharmacies and others from liability for providing abortion pills to people across the country — even those who live in states that have outlawed or severely restricted the procedure. .

*** end quote ***

Seems like this is a transparent attempt to circumvent overturn of Roe by executive diktat.

I would assume that SCOTUS would quickly take cases to set things straight.

And Red-State governors would “nullify” the Federal diktats.

Sigh!

Not like we have an real problems to work on like inflation and the backfiring of Russian sanctions.

Now that Joe Biden’s president, the Times finally admits: Hunter’s laptop is real
By Post Editorial Board
March 17, 2022

Forgive the profanity, but you have got to be s–tting us.

First, the New York Times decides more than a year later that Hunter Biden’s business woes are worthy of a story. Then, deep in the piece, in passing, it notes that Hunter’s laptop is legitimate.

“People familiar with the investigation said prosecutors had examined emails between Mr. Biden, Mr. Archer and others about Burisma and other foreign business activity,” the Times writes. “Those emails were obtained by The New York Times from a cache of files that appears to have come from a laptop abandoned by Mr. Biden in a Delaware repair shop. The email and others in the cache were authenticated by people familiar with them and with the investigation.”

Authenticated!!! You don’t say. You mean, when a newspaper actually does reporting on a topic and doesn’t just try to whitewash coverage for Joe Biden, it discovers it’s actually true?

Key takeaways from President Biden’s State of the Union address

Tackling rising inflation

Biden said investment was needed in US manufacturing capacity in a bid to lower prices, speed up supply chains and boost American jobs.

“I think I have a better idea to fight inflation: lower costs, not your wages,” Biden said. “Instead of relying on foreign supply chains, let’s make it in America.”

*** end quote ***

 “inflation is always and everywhere a monetary phenomenon” —  Nobel laureate Milton Friedman

So how can it “controlled” by any other action than “END THE FED”.

The Dead Old White Guys knew that inflation was tyranny from the phrase “Not worth a Continental damn”.  Hence the Constitutional restriction that only gold and silver could be “money”.  A restriction conveniently ignored by the politicians and bureaucrats in the early 1900’s.  

How did that slip by the Supreme Court?)

For the better part of the 1800’s, “prices” were stable or declining.  (Money supply was relatively static while the supply of goods & services increased.). Everyone could save their cash and it would retain it’s value.

In the 1960’s, the money supply was inflated by FED “printing” and the purchasing power dropped dramatically (i.e., my favorite example is “penny candy”!). 

Argh!

Analysis: Push for Green Energy Not Russia’s Invasion of Ukraine Driving up Oil Prices, Threatening Security
PENNY STARR — 28 Feb 2022452

*** begin quote ***

The website oilprice.com posted an analysis about how the push for green energy years before Russia invaded Ukraine – and on steroids since Joe Biden became president – is to blame for soaring oil prices and foreign policy weakness.

The analysis begins with a story about a team from MetalMinder, “the largest metals-related media site in the U.S.”, on a trip to Germany in 2018 where they discovered people’s health suffered from coal pollution because after the Japanese Fukushima nuclear disaster it began shutting down its nuclear energy operations.

“In hindsight, that decision by Germany appears both foolish and ironic,” the team concluded. “Foolish because Germany has lost its negotiating power (pun intended) with Russia for which it relies.  It’s ironic because the country already had ‘clean energy’ but now must turn back to dirty energy to avoid blackouts.”

Germany on Friday shut down half of the six nuclear plants it still has in operation, a year before the country draws the final curtain on its decades-long use of atomic power. The decision to phase out nuclear power and shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy was first taken by the center-left government of Gerhard Schroeder in 2002. His successor, Angela Merkel, reversed her decision to extend the lifetime of Germany’s nuclear plants in the wake of the 2011 Fukushima disaster in Japan and set 2022 as the final deadline for shutting them down.The three reactors now being shuttered were first powered up in the mid-1980s. Together they provided electricity to millions of German households for almost four decades.

Greenies refuse to recognize that nuclear power is a “clean energy” source.

RANT: Hunter Biden’s mess needs to be thoroughly studied

Hunter Biden never fails to catch a break, from the White House or the elite media
By Post Editorial Board
December 11, 2021 8:29pm 

*** begin quote ***

Boy, does Hunter Biden get a ton of breaks. The White House has basically given up on setting any ethical rules for the First Son, while the cultural elite rush to cover for his sleaze.

Last week, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki refused to commit to “basic transparency” about Hunter’s divestment from an investment fund owned by a Chinese-state entity during a White House Press Briefing. She also refused to admit his infamous laptop is authentic.

“The president’s son is not an employee of the federal government, so I’d point you to his representatives,” Psaki snarked after being asked about the China connection. She used the same lame excuse back in February: “He’s a private citizen — I would point you to him or his lawyers on the outside on any update.”

And never mind that President Joe Biden pledged last December that no family member would have a conflict of interest in his administration: “My son, my family will not be involved in any business, any enterprise that is in conflict with or appears to be in conflict with where there’s appropriate distance from the presidency and government,” he told CNN.

PIERS MORGAN: President Biden’s shameful move to muzzle the US media is a cynical and desperate Kim Jong-un style attempt to hide the fact that his presidency is turning into a total disaster
By PIERS MORGAN FOR MAILONLINE

It’s the kind of thing that regularly happens in Russia, China or North Korea.

When journalists stray too far above their totalitarian-controlled station and dare to hold their political leaders to any form of proper account, they get a visit or phone call from shady Government officials.

*** and ***

I wonder what it could have been that suddenly turned the media so negative against the President?

Oh wait, I remember.

  • August was when the cowardly leader of the free world threw millions of Afghanistan women to the Taliban wolves with his shocking sudden withdrawal of US troops, betraying American allies and costing many lives.
  • Then he authorized a disastrous botched drone strike on a terror suspect in Kabul that killed an innocent family of 10 including women and children.
  • In September, fresh mayhem erupted on the Southern border due to catastrophic mixed messaging from the Biden administration and Americans watched in horror as US border patrol horsemen charged into Haitian migrants. The President shamefully blamed his guards for the chaos, not himself for causing it.
  • In October, Biden tried to criminalize American parents who protested against their kids being taught woke agenda subjects like Critical Race Theory by encouraging the National Schools Board Association to disgracefully brand them ‘domestic terrorists.’
  • Later that month, America ground to a virtual shuddering halt with a vast flotilla of cargo ships stuck off the Californian coast, and a chronic shortage of food-delivery drivers causing empty shelves to appear right across the country.
  • This was a direct consequence of Biden’s reckless desire to behave like an all-year-round Santa Claus with his massive Covid-19 stimulus spending spree that sparked the inflation that provoked this crisis.
  • Prices surged, especially at the fuel pump, wages stagnated, and vast swathes of the American workforce quit their jobs because their President made it more economically beneficial for people to stay at home than go to work.

Yet far from the media giving Biden a tougher time than Trump over all this, as Milbank suggests, most of them went out of their way to defend him.

Once again, I’m forced to agree with Piers.  Despite being on a different page politically than he is, here I think he is spot on.

As Bill Clinton always said “It’s the economy stupid”.  And Sleepy Old Joe has screwed the pooch on that one.

Single handedly, killing the Keystone pipeline and making US oil difficult to get out of the ground, he has take the US from net-exported to begging OPEC for help.

Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Piers has assembled a great list of the difficulties that Joe has put himself in.

Ebola outbreak: Why Obama is allowing Ebolaphobia to spread

*** begin quote ***

Adults admit to anxiety about whether the illness could strike many more people here, and children have confided to me that they are terrified of Ebola. And what is being said is only the obvious part of the psychological virus (call it “Ebolophobia”) that is spreading; I would venture that millions of people are already unconsciously spending mental energy to suppress their worries that the disease could infect them or those they love.

Part of the preventive health strategy to help contain this psychological virus should be a reliable flow of information and bold policy from the Obama administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But, already, their response lacks the necessary element of steady stewardship. And that’s because of President Obama’s continuing reticence to put America first.
