While Americans Can’t Afford To Heat Their Homes, Biden Pays Muslim Country Billions to Dump Coal

As part of talks led by John Kerry, donors are exploring how solar might replace the coal plants.


While Americans can’t afford gas or to heat their homes, Biden is bragging of a deal to subsidize solar panels in Indonesia.

Americans have too much money. And too much everything. Let’s give it all away.

The United States, Indonesia and other allies signed a $20 billion deal on Tuesday at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit that will help Indonesia reduce its reliance on coal.

The goal of the agreement, called the Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP), is to help Indonesia reduce emissions and transition away from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

This isn’t a deal.

This is welfare and a bribe to convince a Muslim regime that has massacred Christians and continues to oppress them to switch its energy from reliable coal to worthless wind and solar.

And they’re taking us for every billion they can get.

The G7 and its partners have made multi-billion dollar offers to wean Vietnam, Indonesia and India off coal — but it has yet to convince emerging economies to drop the dirtiest fossil fuel.

The three deals have been under negotiation through much of 2022 and are being modeled on an earlier, $8.5 billion deal to shut down South Africa’s coal industry, dubbed a Just Energy Transition Partnership (JETP).

It’s hoped that at least two new partnerships might be unveiled during the COP27 U.N. climate talks, which start on November 6 in Egypt. Discussions with Vietnam and Indonesia have advanced to the point where initial cash offers of around $5 billion and $10 billion, respectively…

If you think that’s bad, the Green New Dealers want to get India and eventually China on board. And at that point we’re talking completely nightmarish numbers that would bankrupt everyone.

U.S. President Biden emphasized the importance of this partnership, saying, “Indonesia has shown tremendous leadership and ambition throughout the development of this partnership. The resulting new and accelerated targets demonstrate how countries can dramatically cut emissions and increase renewable energy while advancing a commitment to creating quality jobs and protecting livelihoods and communities.”

While destroying American jobs, livelihoods and communities.

Save the Planet—Kill Yourself

The United Nations warned in 2018 we only had 12 years left for global warming to be kept to a minimum of 1.5 degrees Celsius or further warming would bring catastrophic droughts, floods, extreme heat, and poverty for hundreds of millions of poor, suffering humans.  Urgent changes were needed, OR ELSE!  Urgent, I tell you, URGENT! 

You wouldn’t know it from the results of this year’s annual U.N. climate summit which just ended with a deal for rich nations to transfer money to poor nations, but no deal to reduce emissions.  So let me get this straight:  We have eight years left to keep the planet from burning up, but nothing could be done at the climate summit on the urgent business of curbing emissions?

The whole thing is a joke, a psyop – we’re all being manipulated like puppets on a string.  One of the countries eligible for climate reparations under the new deal is China, a rich nation which built almost a hundred new coal-fired power plants last year.  The joke just got worse.

One indicia of psychological manipulation is the way they cranked up the propaganda machine for this year’s summit.  The U.N. Secretary-General said nations must cooperate or perish – PERISH, I tell you.  We’re on “a highway to climate hell with our foot on the accelerator,” he said.  Oh, my, that sounds dreadful, what will we ever do?  The only thing becoming overheated is the rhetoric.  Then there was another sea level scare which arrived right on time, right when the summit was set to begin.  The idea the seas are rising because of climate change is bunk.  A recent study showed coastal cities are sinking due to groundwater extraction, giving the illusion sea levels are rising.  A human-caused problem, to be sure, but not one that can be fixed by eating bugs or buying an electric car.

Another indicia of manipulation is data tampering.  I’ve told you previously how climatistas are tampering with temperature sensors and re-writing satellite data.  Now comes word they’re lying about the number of 90-degree days increasing in the U.S.  They conveniently start their graphs in 1960, deliberately ignoring the fact there were many more 90-degree days in the 1930s than there are now.

A third indicia we’re all being manipulated is the increasing frequency with which climatistas are revealing their true agendas.  I told you before the summit Greta Thunberg’s true aim is to smash the capitalist system.  She’s not the only one.  John Kerry wants to create artificial demand signals in the marketplace for electric cars, renewables, fake meat, and, yes, eating bugs.  By the way, it’s been reported John Kerry wants to leave his climate czar post to make more money for himself raising capital for clean energy projects.  I keep telling you, these people need to put out financial disclosure statements every time they open their mouth and pontificate about the wonders of clean energy or talk up carbon trading markets.  Selling soap, or selling clean energy and carbon credits – what’s the difference?  Speaking of hidden agendas, the open borders crowd is rebranding illegal aliens as ‘climate migrants’ to boost acceptance for open borders policies.  More manipulation.

The logical conclusion, if you let yourself be manipulated by all this, is that you must kill yourself to save the planet.  You have no right to emit carbon dioxide or consume anything.  This is what some climate gurus have been advocating for some time.  So get the ‘Save the Planet, Kill Yourself’  t-shirt, sing the song, then it’s off to a euthanasia clinic in Switzerland with you.  As one climate guru put it, the earth will be so much better off when there aren’t any people on it.

Climate Reparations? When nature strikes—you pay! Climate ‘loss and damage’ hits the UN

The Democrats Go By Klaus Schwab’s Playbook


Are you ready to pay climate reparations totaling more than all the money in the world for disasters nature caused?

For years CFACT has warned of plans to add “loss and damage” to the UN climate regime, making wealthy nations liable to compensate developing countries when extreme weather strikes.

This week 130 nations placed a draft loss and damage funding plan formally on the agenda for the first time at a UN climate conference.  Will the Biden Administration give in to this?  Who else?

Read the official UN COP 27 loss and damage proposal for yourself at CFACT.org.

China is masterfully outplaying Biden and the rest of the free world by both pushing loss and damage forward and exempting itself from paying.  This advances China’s strategy to supplant U.S. influence in the developing world.

This is incredibly dangerous, not to mention ruinously expensive.

David Wojick underlines the danger perfectly at CFACT.org with his coverage of a report the new left-wing government of Colombia submitted to COP 27 estimating its climate “loss and damage” at a mind-blowing $800 billion per year.

That’s just for one small South American country!

Wojick explains that:

Colombia is a relatively small country with a GDP of around $300 billion a year, about the 40th largest in the world and just 0.4% of the global total. Its “loss and damage” claim is roughly 2.5 times its GDP, so let’s assume that ratio globally.

World GDP is about $81 trillion, which multiplied by 2.5 equals just over $200 trillion a year…

Before the “loss and damage” talks proceed we should ask “What kind of money are we talking about?” Because there is no point in talking about paying the developing countries hundreds of trillions of dollars. It cannot happen.

The UN draft demands a loss and damage funding mechanism be in place and operating within two years, before the start of COP 29 in 2024.

The COP 27 draft calls for loss and damage reparations funds that are:

a) Urgent and immediate
b) New, additional, predictable and adequate so as to assist developing countries in meeting the costs of addressing loss and damage;
c) Additional to adaptation and mitigation funding;
d) Additional;
e) Predictable;
f) Public in origin;
g) Multilateral in origin;
h) Taking a whole-of-institution/organization approach;
i) Timely and through a simple and fast process, without the need for lengthy bureaucratic procedures;
j) Disbursed quickly;

What “loss and damage” scheme will Biden and the West agree to at the UN climate summit in Egypt?

You are not responsible for the weather in Colombia or anywhere else.  America has always been prepared to generously aid a neighbor in distress and should continue to do so.  That is entirely different than accepting legal liability.

Any loss and damage “compromise” in Egypt represents the thin end of a perilous wedge.

America must declare an unequivocal “no” to climate reparations at the COP 27 climate talks.

Anything is too much.

Biden Launches Multimillion-Dollar ‘Climate Gender Equity Fund’ to Address Inequalities

Demoralization of the target audience is yet another step in successful mind control. 


Every big lie in one giant fund. Climate, gender and race. Boom.

“Communist demoralization in the modern times.”

Biden Administration Launches Multimillion-Dollar ‘Climate Gender Equity Fund’ to Address Inequalities

President Joe Biden announced the launch of his multimillion-dollar “Climate Gender Equity Fund” to address purported inequalities women face in climate finance at the United Nations COP 27 climate conference in Egypt on Friday.

By: Jordan Dixon-Hamilton, Breitbart News, 11 Nov 2022:

The Climate Gender Equity Fund will “leverage private sector contributions to help provide women climate leaders with technical skills, networks, and capital to develop and scale climate solutions,” according to a White House statement.

The program will have initial seed funding of $6 million, with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) matching e-commerce giant Amazon’s $3 million investment.

The program will have initial seed funding of $6 million, with the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) matching e-commerce giant Amazon’s $3 million investment.

Amazon said the program will have a “global focus” and “help women access the networks and technical skills they need to accelerate the development of their climate change technologies.”

Amazon worldwide sustainability vice president Kara Hurst said:

As an important step in solving climate change, we must address the gender inequalities that persist in climate finance, and ensure female entrepreneurs have an equal seat at the table and access to the funding, networks, and technical support they need to scale climate solutions. We’re proud to collaborate with USAID and the Biden administration to help scale women-led climate solutions globally.

Amazon added that “female-founded companies typically receive a fraction of total venture capital, and that percentage fell during the pandemic.” Amazon also announced it would allocate an additional $50 million from its Climate Pledge Fund to invest in women-founded and women-led climate tech companies.

Biden’s White House also launched, among other programs, the “Indigenous Peoples Finance Access Facility,” a $2 million program that will “enable the continued climate stewardship by Indigenous peoples and local communities improving their access to climate finance.”

Globalists Eat Gourmet Meats at Climate Summit while Pushing Public to Eat Bugs to Save the Environment

Globalist elites are dining on a “gourmet selection of meats, fish, and dairy at the United Nations COP27 climate change conference in Egypt, as they push supposedly more sustainable foods like bugs.” Yet the public keeps voting them in. Consider also the fact that the West is in severe decline, with bad economies and energy shortages, which globalists have caused, while also facilitating open-door illegal migration.

The globalist plan is international socialism, but to attain this utopian vision, globalists have determined to crush the people psychologically, financially, and in other ways, including a loss of freedom that makes for a massive power differential between the rulers and the populace. Historically, socialism has never worked, yet the globalists still present it as a solution for the poor. The reality is that it creates a deep divide between the totalitarian ruling class and the poor, with the degradation of the humanity of the latter.

Globalist leaders who travelled by private plane and who are now dining on fabulous gourmet meals used, in total, 118 private jets to go to the COP26 Climate Summit last year. They and burned over a 1,000 tons of CO2. This year’s COP27 Summit is no different.

COP27: Globalist Leaders Munch on Meat as They Push Bugs for ‘Proles’

by Kurt Zindulka, Breitbart, November 9, 2022:

Globalist elites will be dining on a gourmet selection of meats, fish, and dairy at the United Nations COP27 climate change conference in Egypt, as they push supposedly more sustainable foods like bugs.

Beef medallion with mushrooms sauce, chicken breast with orange gravy, and salmon with creamy sauce and chives are some of the menu options that world leaders, diplomats, bureaucrats, and industry bigwigs will be chomping down on at the COP27 meeting in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt this week.

The COP Gourmet service also offers an hour and a half of bottomless cocktails for £110 ($125). Attendees are also offered delivery service for items such as paper cups, plastic water bottles and wooden coffee stirrers.

The menu flies in the face of the stated goals of the United Nations, with a 2018 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report saying: “Meat analogues such as imitation meat (from plant products), cultured meat, and insects may help in the transition to more healthy and sustainable diets.”

The World Economic Forum, which has partnered with the UN at COP27 has also been at the forefront of the meat-free future movement, arguing that people should opt for more “climate beneficial foods” such as algae, seaweed and cacti….

Scottish author and political commentator Neil Oliver said: “They’ve come to lecture us about eating less meat while they sit down to menus featuring beef, chicken, salmon, and sea bass and cream sauces. This is not leadership that we are seeing now, it’s desperation, it’s trolling us proles on a galactic scale.

“The policies that they are preaching are condemning hundreds of millions of the world’s poorest to poverty, starvation, death on a global scale and at the same time, in their cynicism, they are ensuring that the populations of their own countries are plunged into fuel and food poverty for the first time in generations.”

Biden climate speech in Egypt reveals bad science, massive spending and regulation

UPDATE: Florida Congressman Greg Steube Talks Biden’s Radical Climate Proposals.


President Biden, seeking to “greenwash” his failing energy policy, delivered a speech at COP 27, the big UN climate conference in Egypt.

The President falsely attributed a host of natural weather events to climate change and then went on to detail a massive laundry list of wasteful climate spending and destructive regulation.

The President said that:

In the United States, we’re seeing historic drought and wildfires in the West, devastating hurricanes and storms in the East.

Here in Africa — here in Africa, home to many nations considered most vulnerable to climate change, food insecurity [and] hunger follows four years of intense drought in the Horn of Africa.

Meanwhile, the Niger River in West Africa, swollen — swollen because of more intense rainfall, is wreaking havoc on fishing and farming communities.

In Nigeria, flooding has recently killed 600 people; 1.3 million more are displaced.

Seasonal livestock migration routes have been used for hundreds of years are being altered, increasing the risk of conflict between herders and local farming communities.

President Biden is wrong.

All of this is natural weather.  Government policy can help people suffering the impacts of extreme weather, but nothing on this list was meaningfully caused by our use of energy.

Floods, droughts, fires, storms, even African “livestock migration” are historically normal and not your fault.

Watch President Biden’s full COP 27 remarks at CFACT.org and read the full transcript and judge for yourself.

President Biden’s media office, joined by Climate Envoy John Kerry, released a lengthy U.S. climate “fact sheet” that summarizes Biden’s climate spending and regulation since he took office and their plans for the future.

Here’s a sample:

  • Double U.S. contributions to the UN “Adaptation Fund” from $50 to $100 million this year.
  • $150 million for “climate resilience in Africa.”
  • $20 million for small island states
  • $5 million to the Migration Multi-Partner Trust Fund to support “climate-affected vulnerable migrants.”
  • Launching a “Climate Gender Equity Fund”
  • $250 million for power generation in Egypt
  • Severe clampdown on methane emissions by American energy producers with $20 billion in spending
  • Close to $4 billion on “Green Shipping” initiatives
  • Require federal contractors to publicly disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and comply with government mandated emissions reductions
  • Commit U.S. national government operations to be “net zero” no later than 2050
  • Quadruple U.S. climate finance to over $11 billion a year
  • More than $65 billion in climate finance through the U.S. Trade and Development Agency and U.S. Export-Import Bank

Read the President Biden’s full climate “fact sheet” at CFACT.org.

In addition to Biden, Friday saw a presentation at COP 27 by the Republican “Climate Caucus,” who many see as “useful idiots” playing into the hands of the climate-Left.

As CFACT’s Adam House posted to CFACT.org: “by participating in this ‘Decarbonization Day,’ these Republican lawmakers have legitimized the UN’s message of collectivism, massive taxes and government spending, corrupt and alarmist science, and centralized power. In their attempt to be part of the conversation, they have only eroded the conservative message.”

President Biden’s climate and energy agenda is based on unsound science, would lead to massive erosion of national sovereignty, individual liberty, and prosperity that will weaken the free world and empower its adversaries.

This cannot stand.

Yet what lies in store for those of us with the courage to marshal the facts and correct the record on climate?

Take a look at this photo Marc Morano posted of a climate radical calling for the “death penalty” for “climate deniers” to CFACT’s Climate Depot.

If world leaders go on shamelessly egging them on, could climate radicals go from attacking great works of art to attacking people?

Watch: CFACT Protesters ‘Glue’ Themselves to Egyptian Museum

Left-wing climate protesters have been going nuts (more than usual) throwing soup on precious works of art and gluing themselves to things.

Not to be outdone, Marc Morano and I “glued” ourselves (well, watch the video) to a display case in the National Museum of Egyptian Civilization.

“No Net Zero! No Green Energy Mandates!” was the call of CFACT’s activists before we were (jokingly) escorted out by security.

WATCH NOW

The wave of lawlessness, trespass, and vandalism left-wing radicals have unleashed has become surreal.  Imagine throwing canned soup on Van Gogh paintings in London and Rome (as if poor Vincent didn’t torture himself enough).

When protesters identifying themselves as “scientists” recently glued themselves to the floor of a Volkswagen factory in Germany, they were shocked when workers turned off the lights and heat and denied them a bowl to use for a toilet.  Nothing “settled” about these idiots’ “science.”

Over the years CFACT has made quite a name for ourselves, not only for the outstanding scholarship and sound science the Left has come to fear, but for poking more than a little creative fun at clueless radicals who so richly deserve it.

“The human race has only one really effective weapon,” Mark Twain said, “and that is laughter.”

What better way to thwart our would-be leftist overlords than to laugh them off the stage?

For nature and people too!


P.S. President Biden is hoping his appearance at the UN climate summit in Egypt will somehow justify his disastrous policies that are blocking American energy production and transportation.  Thank you to everyone who had given so generously to make it possible for CFACT to blow the whistle on the destructive plans being unveiled in Sharm El Sheikh.  Please make the most generous gift you can right now and together let’s defeat the climate-Left with cold hard facts and then laugh them off the stage.  Thank you!

UN Climate Conference Does Not Value Our Freedom But Loves Our Cash

CFACT is at the big UN climate conference in Egypt where we are engaging in climate diplomacy with a far different perspective than most.

CFACT questions fearlessly, informs diligently, and communicates relentlessly.  Underlying our approach is our bedrock confidence that individual freedom is both the most efficient way to order human society and an “unalienable right.”

At the UN climate conference a freedom-oriented approach can be a lonely endeavor.  Freedom creates prosperity.  One thing the ideologues and profiteers here assembled do value, however, is our cash.

CFACT’s Marc Morano told Mark Steyn on GB TV that, “Al Gore went beyond billions, tens of billions, he’s now talking four trillion dollars annually and he doesn’t even want it from governments. He wants some kind of corporate spending on climate. Al Gore has upped the money game like I’ve never seen in the history of all these climate summits.”

CFACT’s Peter Murphy engaged a COP 27 energy panel and reports that, “when I questioned her about the concern that many people do not want to live in cities and enjoy having their own car, and that such government mandates are at variance with democracy, she retorted that “we are not against democracy…we are about showing people that it benefits them.”

Murphy saw the climate command and control mindset was on full display when urban planner Kathleen Cameron told the panel “if we make roads narrower so people can’t speed through them, people feel inconvenienced, and they’ll want to go to alternative forms of transit. If you make it less fun to drive, you will soon discover that riding a bike is incredibly free and empowering.”

There are some signs that government officials are waking up to our continued need for fossil fuels, but sadly they would rather import them than produce them at home.  Real Clear Energy published an article I submitted where I write, “European and other countries are finally realizing that they still need fossil fuel energy – that wind and solar are too expensive and unreliable to power modern economies, preserve jobs, and keep people warm during frigid winters. Russia’s war on Ukraine has driven this home dramatically.

So Europe wants to switch from Russia to Africa for oil, gas and maybe coal – while still refusing to finance fossil fuel projects for Africa’s own needs, and telling Africa to rely on wind and solar.”

While Europe and America definitely need to wake up and unleash domestic energy production, Duggan Flanakin points out at CFACT.org that one positive note being repeated at COP 27 is that Africa has vast energy resources that can lift up that continent and the world.  “The message that.. countless African entrepreneurs and growth-oriented officials have for COP 27 is to get out of the way and let us “Drill, Baby, Drill.” The world, they argue, will benefit from a prosperous, energized African continent.”

The UN climate folks are intent on wrecking our energy economy and are making a concerted push for vast power as they seek unimaginable riches.

Too many people are unaware of what the UN is up to in Egypt and just how dangerous climate extremism has become.  That needs to change.

Lions, Tigers, and Polar Bears – Oh, My!

The 27th annual U.N. climate change conference (COP27) got underway in Egypt today.  This time, they promise to get down to business, but it doesn’t have anything to do with the climate.  It has to do with poor nations shaking down rich nations for money.

More on that in a moment, but we start with the fact the United Nations, which organized the conference, has a very bad track record on climate predictions.  It predicted in 1989 entire nations would be wiped off the face of the earth if global warming was not stopped by the year 2000.  It said global warming would be irreversible after that year.  Last week – 33 years later – it said we are very close to irreversible changes in the climate.  Ah yes, climate change is the fake religion of the future – and always will be.

But a bad track record of predictions didn’t stop the climate change crowd from cranking up the propaganda machine for this year’s conference.  The past eight years were the hottest on record, the U.N. screamed.  Except there was a 20-year pause in the rise of the global mean surface temperature of the earth ending in 2019 that the climate change crowd can’t explain.  Now we’re in a New Pause.  They don’t want to talk about that, either.  They also don’t want to talk about another one of their great deceptions – rising temperatures killing more older people than ever before.  The fact of the matter is that heat deaths among the elderly are not up significantly after you adjust for population growth.

But the glaciers are disappearing, we were told in the run-up to the conference.  They say the glaciers will all be gone by 2050, but in 1923 it was predicted the glaciers in Glacier National Park would be gone by 1950.  It didn’t happen.  So they changed their prediction to 1961, then to 2000, then to 2020.  Still didn’t happen. In fact, the glaciers in the park have actually gotten bigger in the last 30 years.  You can put the disappearing glaciers right next to the disappearing coral reefs and polar bears.  They didn’t happen, either.  You know, the climate liars really should give it a rest, especially after NPR let the mask slip last month and revealed recycling is a huge fraud on a gullible public.

But let’s get down to business – there’s money to be made.  Despite repeated failures by many nations to live up to past promises, this year’s conference will extract new promises from rich nations to redistribute wealth to poor nations in the name of climate change.  ‘Loss and damage funding’, they call it.  Rich nations must pay their fair share for causing the climate change that didn’t happen or wasn’t caused by human activity, you see.  How much money are we talking about?  As much as ten times the amount rich nations are forking over now.  Poor nations will need half a trillion dollars by 2050, the U.N. says.  But why be so miserly, and why wait?  Developing countries are demanding a trillion dollars a year right now.  We feel so guilty – how can we not give it to them?

Germany is knocking down wind turbines to make way for coal mining, and the leftist finance minister there now supports fracking to boost natural gas supplies.  Climate whiz kid Greta Thunberg won’t be happy until the entire capitalist system is overthrown.  Well, that puts the true agenda right out there, doesn’t it?  The whole phony climate agenda is continually being shown as unsustainable and for the fraud it really is.

But I’ll make you a deal:  I’ll agree to a new carbon tax on fossil fuels IF you’ll agree to child and slave labor taxes on the minerals in your electric car batteries, AND a tax on Chinese influence and Russian funding of American green groups, AND a data tampering tax.  Let’s call the last one the ‘hockey stick’ tax.  It should bring in a lot of money because the climate crowd keeps cooking the books.  I’d propose a failed predictions tax, but the U.N. couldn’t afford it.

VIDEO: Carlson, ‘The Left Has Run This Country Into the Ground’

At this late stage in the ruin of our country, Tucker Carlson’s opening monologues are the lighthouse, a safe harbor in this dark and terrible storm. If there is one thing you do, tune in – every night – this oasis of truth will fortify you and stiffen your resolve to fight this overwhelming take down of our once great country.

It is our responsibility as Americans to defend our Constitutional Republic.

TRANSCRIPT

Polls suggest that even places that supported Joe Biden by a wide margin in 2020 are about to swing dramatically against him and his party. A week from today, New York, of all places, could have a Republican governor. The last time there was an election in New York, Biden won the state by 23 points. What we’re seeing is what political scientists refer to as a realignment, and there’s no mystery as to why it’s happening. Democrats failed conclusively. No group in American history has done a worse job running this country than the neoliberals currently in charge. They’re vicious, they’re intolerant and they are utterly corrupt, but above all, they are incompetent.

In less than two years, it is not an overstatement to say, they have run this country into the ground, wrecking our economy, desecrating our military and opening the borders of the United States to more than 5 million lawbreakers. The destruction they have wrought is so profound it’s hard to describe. So of course, there will be consequences for that.

In a country with democratic elections, how could this party stay in power? Honestly, we don’t know, but maybe Joe Biden does. Tonight, Biden traveled across the city of Washington to Union Station. Built by Teddy Roosevelt more than 100 years ago, Union Station was for generations one of the most beautiful public buildings in this country. Under Joe Biden, it has become a homeless encampment, a place that is too filthy and too dangerous for Starbucks. Standing at this monument to his own failures, Biden proceeded to do what he now so commonly does: Bark at the rest of us for our moral failures. The guy who showered with his daughter is telling you you’re a bad person. Tonight’s topic: Democracy. Here’s a taste of it.

PRESIDENT BIDEN: Yet now, extreme MAGA Republicans aim to question not only the legitimacy of past elections, but elections being held now and into the future. The extreme MAGA element of the Republican Party, which is a minority of that party, as I said earlier, but it’s the driving force is trying to succeed where they failed in 2020 to suppress the right of voters and subvert the electoral system itself.

Well, that’s very weird if you think about it. Here we are less than a week before the Democratic Party is expected to suffer overwhelming losses in the midterm elections and here you have the leader of that party, Joe Biden, commanding you not to complain about the election results. Why is that? Well, let’s see. Here’s Joe Biden telling you that thanks to the changes, the many changes, Democrats have made to our system of voting, all of which make voter fraud easier to commit, we may not know the results of the elections for a few days, but don’t be alarmed. Everything is completely on the level and whatever you do, do not ask questions or else you’re a criminal.

BIDEN: We want Americans to vote. We want every American’s voice to be heard. Now we have to move the process forward. We know that more and more ballots are cast in early voting or by mail in America. We know that many states don’t start counting those ballots until after the polls close on Nov. 8. That means in some cases we won’t know the winner of the election — for a few days, until a few days after the election. It takes time to count all legitimate ballots in a legal and orderly manner. It’s always been important for citizens in a democracy to be informed and engaged. Now it’s important for citizens to be patient as well. That’s how it’s supposed to work.

What is this? What is going on here?

We’re a week from the election, six days. Biden could have given, would under normal circumstances have given, a speech about his policies and how they’ve made your life better. He tried to convince you this country is actually in better shape than it looks and he did that. He could, in other words, have made a pitch for your vote based on what he has done. That’s what politicians do in functioning democracies. They try to convince you to support them on the basis of what they have done for you. That is democracy. That’s not at all what Joe Biden just did. Instead, Biden commanded you to accept the election results whenever they arrive, no matter what they may be. It was bizarre and it did not inspire confidence.

You would hate to think that what’s happening here is a version of what is happening tonight in Brazil. According to official tallies, a convicted criminal, an avowed socialist, called Lula da Silva, beat the incumbent president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, by a narrow margin this weekend and yet millions of Brazilians, millions, don’t believe that’s what actually happened. Bolsonaro himself has not conceded. There are protests all over Brazil right now. You’re seeing some of them on your screen right now. There are questions about whether all the ballots had been counted, why so many were thrown out — millions — and whether election laws were violated in the process.

We can’t render judgment on those questions, but if you care about democracy, if you think the process is essential, then you would look into those allegations. Anything less is not democracy, and yet what’s interesting and maybe a point of concern for the rest of us here in the U.S., is that you are no longer allowed to ask questions about this election in Brazil and you’re not allowed because the Biden administration doesn’t want you to. That’s true. YouTube, which has functioned for the last two years as an arm of the Biden administration, has announced it is censoring any posts in Brazil that question the election results. Brazil’s courts have also rejected any inquiry into the election.

Gavin Newsom Shells Out $1.6 Million To Stop Climate Measure That Would Raise Taxes On The Rich

Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s reelection campaign spent over $1.6 million to oppose a climate initiative that would raise taxes on millionaires to help low-income Californians buy electric cars. Despite this, Newsom, who is a multimillionaire, has previously touted his administration’s efforts to rapidly cut carbon emissions and get more electric vehicles (EVs) on the road.

Newsom, who boasts an estimated net worth of around $20 million, signed a bill in September to codify ambitious emissions reduction targets and praised the California Air Resources Board’s decision to ban all gasoline-powered car sales by 2035. However, Newsom’s campaign gave $1,617,216 to the “No on 30” committee, which opposes Proposition 30, a ballot measure that institutes an additional 1.75% tax on individuals that make over $2 million a year to help disadvantaged Californians buy EVs, according to campaign finance disclosures filed Tuesday.

Newsom aims to make his state’s auto industry “all-electric” by 2035 and will spend $10 billion of taxpayers’ money to “aggressively fight the climate crisis” by phasing out gas cars and building EV infrastructure. The Democrat called Proposition 30 an irresponsible “special interest carve-out” and argued that the proposed law was designed to “funnel” state income tax to Lyft, a large rideshare company, according to a statement Newsom’s campaign provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

Newsom aims to make his state’s auto industry “all-electric” by 2035 and will spend $10 billion of taxpayers’ money to “aggressively fight the climate crisis” by phasing out gas cars and building EV infrastructure. The Democrat called Proposition 30 an irresponsible “special interest carve-out” and argued that the proposed law was designed to “funnel” state income tax to Lyft, a large rideshare company, according to a statement Newsom’s campaign provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

“California’s tax revenues are famously volatile, and this measure would make our state’s finances more unstable − all so that special interests can benefit,” Newsom said in the statement. “Californians should know that just this year our state committed $10 billion for electric vehicles and their infrastructure, part of a $54 billion nation-leading package to fight climate change and build a zero-emission future.”

A small percentage of California taxpayers would fund Proposition 30’s EV initiatives as only 35,000 of the state’s residents reported adjusted gross incomes greater than $2 million, according to 2019 statistics published by the state’s Franchise Tax Board.

Although the measure could help Lyft by raising money to help the company’s drivers buy electric cars, environmentalists began drafting the measure before the company became involved, CEO of California Environmental Voters Mary Creasman told CBS News. A Lyft spokeswoman previously told the Daily Caller News Foundation that none of the $3.5 billion to $5 billion in tax revenue generated by the law was “earmarked” for the rideshare industry.

Californians will vote to implement or reject Proposition 30 on Nov. 8.

Biden to attend UN climate summit that Greta has correctly declared a ‘scam, greenwashing, lying and cheating’

Greta finally gets it! Greta Thunberg: UN Climate Summit COP27 is a ‘scam’ that provides an opportunity for ‘people in power’ to use ‘greenwashing, lying & cheating’

Climate Depot’s Marc Morano comments: 

“I will be attending the UN climate summit in Egypt in person and will report back on just how correct Greta is in her assessment of the UN process. President Joe Biden will also be attending. Stay tuned!
Kudos to Greta! She started out willing to travel great distances to attend these UN climate summits, but she now correctly realizes they are a ‘scam.’ Those of us opposed to the entire ‘Net Zero’ & Green New Deal agenda applaud Greta’s moment of clarity when it comes to the undeniable scam that is the UN climate process. We welcome Greta now understanding that these summits have nothing to do with the climate.  

Given the full exposure of the green energy mandate scam, this UN climate summit should be dubbed the ‘The Cover Your A$$ Summit’ as the climate activists will be furiously spinning the failure of green energy and the coming deadly blackouts as somehow Russia’s fault or the fault of the free market and a great “opportunity” to double down (on green energy failure).At least one voice sounds sane — Greta Thunberg finally gets what the UN climate process is all about.”

Greta finally gets it! Greta Thunberg: UN Climate Summit COP27 is a ‘scam’ that provides an opportunity for ‘people in power’ to use ‘greenwashing, lying & cheating’

Greta Thunberg has described climate summits such as the Cop27 conference taking place in Egypt next week as a “scam” that is “failing” humanity and the planet by not leading to “major changes”.

The Swedish activist said people in positions of power were using the high-profile gatherings for attention and were “greenwashing, lying and cheating”. … Activists must try to “make people realize what a scam this is and realize that these systems are failing us”, she added.

Reuters: Climate activist Greta Thunberg on Sunday called out next month’s United Nations climate summit in Egypt for being “held in a tourist paradise in a country that violates many basic human rights.” Greta sees the climate summit as an opportunity for “people in power… to [use] greenwashing, lying and cheating.”

Top Dems Urge Biden To Nationalize Oil & Gas Industry

Common Sense Tells Us That There Is No Viable Alternative to Fossil Fuels

The greatest myth ever told. But who is right?


Mankind is faced with the most important question in history: To use fossil fuels or not to use fossil fuels?

Environmentalists want to totally eliminate all petroleum based fuels in order to save the planet from climate change. The question is: At what cost?

Conservationists want to use all types of petroleum based fuels, including nuclear and hydroelectric power, but use them wisely to provide for human flourishing. The question is: At what cost?

History tells us that when nations use their natural resources, including petroleum based fossil fuels, wisely they flourish. History also tells us that when nations are energy poor or energy dependent they become weak and poorer and their people suffer.

Since 2010, more than a billion people have gained access to electricity. As a result, 90 percent of the planet’s population was connected in 2019. Yet 759 million people still live without electricity, with about half of them living in fragile and conflict-affected settings.

Due to Hurricane Ian we went without electricity for five days and it was hell on earth.

A New Age Was Born—The Modern Petroleum Industry

The first oil was discovered by the Chinese in 600 B.C. and transported in pipelines made from bamboo.

But it was Colonel Edwin Drake’s heralded discovery of oil in Pennsylvania in 1859 and his establishing the first oil well in August 27, 1859 that changed U.S. history.

But is wasn’t until the Spindletop discovery in Texas in 1901 which set the stage for the new U.S. petroleum industry. According to Lamar University,

The Spindletop oilfield, discovered on a salt dome formation south of Beaumont in eastern Jefferson County on January 10, 1901, marked the birth of the modern petroleum industry. The Gladys City Oil, Gas, and Manufacturing Company, formed in August 1892 by George W. O’BrienGeorge W. CarrollPattillo Higgins, Emma E. John, and J. F. Lanier, was the first company to drill on Spindletop Hill. Three shallow attempts, beginning in 1893 and using cable-tool drilling equipment were unsuccessful; Lanier and Higgins had left the company by 1895.

[ … ]

A new age was born. The world had never seen such a gusher before. By September 1901, there were at least six successful wells on Gladys City Company lands. Wild speculation drove land prices around Spindletop to incredible heights. One man who had been trying to sell his tract there for $150 for three years sold his land for $20,000; the buyer promptly sold to another investor within fifteen minutes for $50,000. One well, representing an initial investment of under $10,000, was sold for $1,250,000.

Cheap and Reliable Power Is The Life Blood of Modern Man

For the first time in American history we have one political party and its global allies who want to end the use of all petroleum products. But at what cost to the common citizen?

Efforts to stop all petroleum use is being mandated by agencies of the federal government using, among other regulations, corporate ESG Scores.

ESG Scores measure every company’s exposure to long-term environmental, social and governance risks.

A key component of that war against the common man is to eliminate capitalism and replace it with a new “stakeholder” doctrine for businesses globally and in the U.S. This model is based upon the need to attain environmental, social and governance scores that fully supplant capitalism and replace it with a one world governance based on big government, i.e. Socialist, Communist, ideals.

ESG scoring’s goal is to fundamentally transform the role of every company from a shareholder focus (capitalism) to a single stakeholder decree (the government).

According to the Heartland Institute,

Klaus Schwab and a growing list of powerful global economic and political elites, including BlackRock CEO Larry Fink and President Joe Biden, have recently committed to a global “reset” of the prevailing school of economic thought. They seek to supplant the entrenched “shareholder doctrine” of capitalism, which—as Milton Friedman famously espoused over 50 years ago—holds that the only purpose of a corporate executive is to maximize profits on behalf of company shareholders.

This effort to fundamentally transform global economics via the cooperation of major corporations and state legislatures is an existential threat to every American’s Constitutional rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

The ESG Score is designed to:

  1. Force companies to “go green” by decreasing their use of petroleum products.
  2. Force companies to hire employees based upon their merit but rather on the color of their skin or sexual identities.
  3. And force companies to comply with government mandates, like Covid lockdowns and mandated vaccinations.

ESG Scores are designed to control businesses small to large to comply or else!

The Bottom Line—Make America Energy Independent, Again!

Countries that are energy independent flourish, those who aren’t suffer. For example, clean and fresh water is a basic need of all societies, to have clean and fresh potable water a country must have the infrastructure to process the water in water purification plants and then provide it to its citizens via a water lines driven by pumps powered predominantly by petroleum products.

Fresh, fluorinated water is not possible without cheap and reliable power.

According to an EIA analysis:

The Virgin Islands use [the] largest amounts of imported petroleum to power the desalination plants that supply their drinking water; many small, simple-cycle generators are used to provide electricity; and there are “operational constraints and power losses on the islands’ isolated electric grids.”

Petroleum driven power is essential for human flourishing and freedom.

On December 28th, 2016 American author, energy theorist, industrial policy pundit and founder and President of the Center for Industrial Progress Alex Epstein shared how to make a transformative contribution to human flourishing and how to create value in the world in his presentation titled “The ‘F’ word“:

Fast forward to October 27, 2022 and watch this discussion by energy philosopher Alex Epstein on how Biden’s  green policies have created an energy crisis in America:

In 2020, U.S. energy intensity reached a low of 5.05 thousand British thermal units (Btu) per chained 2012 dollar, down 4% from the previous year and less than half as energy intensive as the United States was in 1983. This number will go up because of Biden and his green energy policies. Kill the use of petroleum products and you kill the American working class.

Americans can only flourish if they have massive amounts of petroleum products.

It’s the freedom to have access to cheap and reliable power, which drives our economy, stupid!
