Here we go with the climate change nonsense:
The impacts of the climate crisis, from extreme heat to wildfires, to intense rainfall and flooding, will only continue to intensify unless we choose another course for ourselves and generations to come,” US climate envoy John Kerry said. “What the world needs now is real action.”
Of course, John Kerry, the appointed Energy Czar, is a lying asshole, there to make himself wealthier and to foment fear among the uneducated in our world. The latest report from the United Nations (clue) Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a collection of scientists and politicians (clue) who purport to offer the best evidence of climate change.
The report is immense but a 41 page “summary for policymakers” (clue) suggests there is no reason to sacrifice your life or even your standard of living, to the climate gods. Hot rhetoric aside, the report doesn’t tell us much that’s new since its last report in 20113, and some of it is less dire.
Keep in mind that the IPCC report is a political document. It is intended to scare the public and motivate politicians to reduce Co2 emissions no matter the cost, which by the way, the report summary never mentions.
Andrew Cuomo Resigns
On Tuesday, Andrew Cuomo, the former governor of New York resigned his office as a result of sexual harassment charges levied by some thirteen different women. Funny how he got away with the deaths of 15,000 people with no consequence, e, excuse me, he did get an Emmy for his “leadership” during the pandemic and also pulled a $5 million book deal out of it, neither of which he deserved. No jail time, no charges. I have no pity for the guy at all.
Infrastructure Bill Passed
Also on Tuesday, the Senate passed the $1.2 trillion boondoggle they call an “Infrastructure” bill. Fact is, only about one third of the funds will go to infrastructure, the balance is targeted to Green New Deal bullshit. The fact that 19 “Republicans” voted for this shows you how deep the swamp is and how close we are to losing our country. You know what’s next, right? The Marxists will pass another spending bill by the reconciliation process (no bipartisan support, ALL Democrat votes) somewhere in the $5 trillion range. All for communist bullshit. The whole thing makes me sick to my stomach. Bastards, every one of them.
That didn’t take long, the rats met during the night Tuesday and passed a $3.5 trillion dollar budget resolution with not ONE republican vote.
White House Urges Increased OPEC Production
The White House urged OPEC to increase oil production, saying recent planned increases are insufficient. Do you believe this asshole? He shuts down American pipelines and American exploration and sends American dollars to OPEC for product we have in the ground, ready to flow. Idiots, complete fucking idiots!

TEDDY ROOSEVELT ON IMMIGRANTS IN AMERICA…1907
In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
