US Department of Energy beckons clean
energy development at Hanford
Posted by Moritz55 10/1/2023 6:11:08 PM Post Reply
The U.S. Department of Energy is rolling out a new program to redevelop some of its lands into clean energy hubs – starting with the former nuclear Hanford site in southeast Washington state. Many Energy officials flew in to meet with industry leaders and nearly 100 community members at the Federal Building in Richland in late September to discuss the new plan. "As you saw on the maps as you were coming in there, this is a large contiguous area of land. It is, in fact, 30 square miles," said David Turk, Deputy Secretary of Energy. "That's a big piece of land. That's not something that happens everyday for clean energy
No, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Kennedy
is NOT an Anti-Semite
Posted by ladydawgfan 10/1/2023 6:04:53 PM Post Reply
Robert Kennedy Jr. is constantly being attacked by the Democratic Party media as an anti-Semite. Besides the media, one of his biggest attackers has been Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), who uses the card of “I’m a Jew and you’re an anti-Semite” as her argument. But the truth is the exact opposite. Kennedy is anything but an anti-Semite and one of the strongest supporters of Israel in the world. And Wasserman Schultz is a nasty woman who uses her being born a Jew as a weapon against anyone she disagrees with and wants to slander. She gets away with it most of the time for two reasons:
‘Petri Dish Of American Leftism’:
DeSantis Blasts Newsom, Says Debate Between
Florida And California Is ‘Over’

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis blasted California Gov. Gavin Newsom as he contrasted their respective states’ policies in an interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.” “I think they’re getting all the big things wrong,” DeSantis told Bartiromo when asked about California’s policies. “Their streets are not safe because they’ve indulged in leftist ideology. The economy is really difficult for working people because they’re putting a left-wing agenda over the well-being of people who are working hard. So it will be an interesting debate.”
AOC leaps to the defense of Jamaal Bowman

Progressive Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has leapt to the defense of fellow New York representative Jamaal Bowman as he faces criticism for pulling a fire alarm in the Capitol on Saturday. AOC told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday that Bowman's actions occurred in a 'moment of panic,' exacerbated by the pressure and chaos of attempting to avert a government shutdown - which Congress successfully did late on Saturday. 'I think there's something to be said that the government's about to shut down, there's a vote clock that's going down, the exits that are normally open in that building were suddenly closed,' said Ocasio-Cortez.
Chicago Armed Robbers on an Extraordinary
Rampage: 'Everyone Is so Freaked Out'
Posted by ladydawgfan 10/1/2023 4:59:05 PM Post Reply
Chicago’s criminal class is feeling a little left out these days. They’re envious of all the smash-and-grab looters that are operating out west. So Chicago’s criminals decided to go the looters one better. In a shocking series of armed robberies throughout the city, thieves have developed new tactics that allow them to hit a dozen or more unsuspecting victims on the street and disappear before the police can scoop them up. The robbers use stolen cars and hit specific neighborhoods, accosting people and taking their valuables while brandishing automatic weapons in their faces. One such spree included two armed thieves hitting two discount stores and robbing employees

Truths: The Earth’s climate has continuously changed over 4.5 billion years. Carbon is a relatively rare compound in our atmosphere but integral to life on Earth. Fossil fuel has dramatically improved human life in every way imaginable. And he who controls carbon emissions controls everything. This last point is why global leftists relentlessly press the fiction of anthropogenic climate change. As proof that anti-CO2 brainwashing works, 41% of French people polled want to limit humans to only four airplane rides per year. Westerners have no sense of what the pre-fossil-fuel world
Who Is This Guy? CA Gov. Newsom Vetoes
Bill to Give Unemployment Benefits to

Who is this guy sitting in the governor's office in California? His name is still Gavin Newsom, but lately, he hasn't been acting as the progressive zealot we're used to. Perhaps he's an AI version? On Saturday, he vetoed a bill that would have allowed workers on strike to become eligible for Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefits. Wait, what? Newsom passed on a chance to take our hard-earned tax dollars and give them to someone else while pandering to unions? Can this actually be happening? Governor Hair Gel noted that the state's unemployment fund is just plain out of money:

creating challenges for McCarthy
Posted by Moritz55 10/1/2023 2:44:04 PM Post Reply
The dynamics of what has fueled recent gridlock on Capitol Hill can be boiled down to numbers. While Democrats retain a slight majority in the Senate, even with the recent passing of Dianne Feinstein of California, House Republicans must contend with a razor-thin 221-213 majority — putting the GOP conference in a precarious position as any major bloc within the party can help pass or scuttle critical pieces of legislation. The House is a sharply partisan body, as opposed to the more deliberative upper chamber, which has a 60-vote threshold to pass most major bills. So House Speaker Kevin McCarthy of California faced a critical challenge on Saturday as he pushed through
2023 Ryder Cup results, scores standings:
Europe holds off late U.S. push to win
seventh straight on home soil
Posted by Hazymac 10/1/2023 1:57:52 PM Post Reply
Europe has officially reclaimed the Ryder Cup. Winning 16.5 to 11.5, it leaned on star players and a sensational team effort across the first two days to win the competition for the eighth time in the last 11 editions and seventh straight when hosting the event dating back to 1997. Tommy Fleetwood won the key half point in the 11th match against Rickie Fowler. Heading to the par-4 16th with a one-hole lead, Fleetwood hit his tee shot to 23 feet after Fowler found the water. After Fleetwood missed an eagle putt, Fowler conceded a 2-foot, 8-inch birdie putt -- and Europe's victory. Fleetwood's win on the hole secured at worse
Criminal-Friendly Seattle Is So Bad This
Guy's Shocked When a Judge Won't Let Him Go

Seattle’s so woke that the criminals think they run the justice system now, and we can prove it. There was a delicious bit of schadenfreude in court on Thursday listening to an accused bad guy ask plaintively of a judge (paraphrasing here) “Wait, why can’t I get the easy-on-criminals treatment that every other bad guy has gotten?” The crimes this guy and five of his friends are accused of pulling off are egregious and frightening, as I reported recently in my West Coast, Messed Coast™ report.

Katie Couric: Obama Owes Me a 'Big-Ass
Bouquet' for 2008 Palin Attack Interview
Posted by Hazymac 10/1/2023 1:47:50 PM Post Reply
Fox News media reporter Joseph Wulfsohn reported on Friday that former CBS Evening News anchor Katie Couric boasted at the liberal Texas Tribune Festival last weekend about how she helped Barack Obama get elected in 2008 with her infamous attack interview on Republican Gov. Sarah Palin. "You're welcome, by the way," Couric told the audience, sparking laughter and applause. She added, "I always thought that Barack Obama should have sent me a big-ass bouquet of flowers for that interview." Then-White House battle-axe Helen Thomas said Couric "saved the country" with that interview. She justified sticking it to McCain for health reasons, and for his poor judgment in picking Palin.
Senate Passes Interim CR Extending Budget
45 Days – DC Going Bananas That Ukraine
Funding Not Included
Posted by earlybird 10/1/2023 1:25:31 PM Post Reply
The U.S. Senate passed the stop gap spending CR (Continuing Resolution) extending government funding for 45 days. The Senate vote was 88-9. Mike Lee, Bill Hagerty, Ted Cruz, JD Vance, Eric Schmitt, Rand Paul, Roger Marshall, Mike Braun, and Marcia Blackburn voted against the CR. The CR ends November 17th. There was no additional funding for Ukraine in the House or Senate bill. DC is going bananas, claiming that everyone supports additional multi-billion expenditures for Ukraine, but during a Senate Republican meeting earlier today, even John Thune told Mitch McConnell the ask for more Ukraine funding was a bridge too far.

So it looks as if Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., is just about to turn up the volume. It was bad enough for the Democratic establishment when he announced he was going to run for President on the Democratic ticket. Didn’t he know that The Committee already had its heir and a couple of spares, none of whom was named Kennedy? “Look at your poll numbers, Bro. Even against a senile and visibly failing puppet you are trailing by 50 or 60 points. Give it up now before you embarrass yourself further!” No such luck. It seems that Kennedy is in for the duration. A couple of days ago rumors
So, There's a Plot to Remove Kevin McCarthy
as Speaker of the House

It’s not confirmed, but after Kevin McCarthy allegedly fostered a deal with Democrats over Ukraine aid to pass a stopgap measure to keep the government open, some might pull the trigger on such a plot. It only takes one person to file a motion to vacate, which could hurl the entire House into chaos. The circus would do only one thing: benefit the Democrats ahead of the 2024 elections. There are numerous things Speaker McCarthy has done that have given conservatives heartburn. If the GOP can clinch a more significant majority with more breathing room and a better candidate for the speakership
The Pangloss-Petain Presidency replies
Posted by Hazymac 10/1/2023 12:56:27 PM Post Reply
The argument whether Joe Biden is the worst-ever president could be settled by ranking him with the worst people in American history. If that seems too glib or partisan, people might try an historical and literary approach. For example, Voltaire’s eponymous Candide finds chaos and catastrophe on every hand but his mentor Dr. Pangloss sees it as the best of all possible worlds. According to the good doctor, “It is impossible that things should be other than they are, for everything is right.” Like Candide, Americans are confused and bewildered. There’s something happening here, as the Buffalo Springfield said, and by now it’s exactly clear. As David Samuels said in

Unstable equilibrium generates a critical situation. “The Lessons of History,” Will & Ariel Durant When one considers the full extent of the Roman cataclysm leading to the inevitable fall — the plethora of corrupt and self-promoting politicians, the exposure of unwanted infants (open-air abortion) and the consequent decline in the reproductive ratio, the deterioration of road systems and infrastructure, the degrading of a once-mighty military, and the evident degeneration of sexual morality (as the fifth-century Christian historian Salvian declaimed, “Be ashamed of your lives, no cities are free of impurities”) — one cannot help but note the affinities and correlations between the Roman Empire and the American Republic.

House GOP members are preparing a motion to expel Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., amid his renewed threat to pursue a motion to vacate House Speaker Kevin McCarthy. The House Republican members will seek to expel Gaetz if the ethics committee report comes back with findings of guilt, Fox News has learned. One member told Fox News the report is mostly written but does not know what it contains. Yet following threats to vacate McCarthy, the member said of Gaetz, "No one can stand him at this point.

If you feel less safe walking the streets and worse off financially than you did four years ago, you are not alone. Six in 10 Americans think the country has become more dangerous since President Joe Biden entered office, and a measly 14 percent think his administration has done a good job tackling crime. Some 56 percent of Americans, including 51 percent of independent voters, also think the economy has gotten worse in another damning indictment of Biden's leadership.

One day after Speaker of the House Kevin McCarthy (R., Calif.) collaborated with Democrats to avoid a government shutdown, Representative Matt Gaetz (R., Fla.) said he plans to move to expel McCarthy from the speakership. “I do intend to file a motion to vacate against Speaker McCarthy this week. I think we need to rip off the Band-Aid. I think we need to move on with new leadership that can be trustworthy,” Gaetz said Sunday on CNN. Gaetz’s threats come after McCarthy secured enough Democratic support to pass a short-term spending bill through the House on Saturday, narrowly avoiding a government shutdown. Although Gaetz and other GOP hardliners opposed the continuing resolution,

As world government progresses, we as a citizenry act almost like stunned cattle, unable to mount any viable resistance. For decades, we have ignored the initiatives of the U.N., treating it as it demands to be treated, as a noble rescue agency that delivers food and blankets. Criticism is sharply limited, as is analysis. (Snip) And, because of our quiescence, its methodology -- act without permission or impunity -- is advancing on the developed world. Behind the scrim of the media which treats anything from the U.N. the way fundamentalists do Bible verses, every sovereign state is setting aside one-third of its land mass
