Schadenfreude: Department of Energy ramps
up the war against their tax slaves (us)

Original Article

Posted By: Hazymac, 12/25/2022 4:14:12 PM

On December 19, 2022, the Biden White House released a statement briefing the public on a newly proposed rule by the Department of Energy which would require lightbulb manufacturers to comply with new “climate change” efficiency standards. In fact, the move was just the latest transgressions against the American citizenry: "This is the 110th action to strengthen energy efficiency standards that the Administration has taken in 2022. These 110 actions span a range of household products—everything from air conditioners and furnaces, to clothes washers and dryers, to kitchen appliances and water heaters—as well as commercial and industrial equipment.


Years ago while the PTB were eliminating normal incandescent light bulbs, I was buying a full closet load of 60, 75, and 100s. I will never run out.

When the Fred Upton light bulb bill was signed by GW Bush, I stocked incandescents as described by OP. I also hoarded candelabra and other specialty bulbs. Get incandescents while you can.

The 0's DoE required more efficient water heaters. To help in meeting the new standard manufacturers increased the amount of insulation thus increasing the outside diameter. Many times the new heater would not fit through an opening or into the old heater space and required a carpenter in addition to the plumber or relocating the heater requiring additional plumbing. i am currently dealing with sewer issues due to a low water flush toilet in a 60 year old home. Our government is run by lawyers and bureaucrats who have no concept of how things work in our world.

Our glorious leaders need to set an example and turn the heat down to 60 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and 55 at night in all government builds which include Congress and the offices associated with them, as well as the White House and Harris' residence. Also, lights shall be turned off in any rooms that are not being used. Stove limitations to one use daily and dried food instead of refrigeration in these same facilities. Meter readings shall be available to the public to prove these rules are adhered to. Then, maybe I will consider lowering my thermostat.

Thinking about cutting back on sweets and hitting the gym as your New Year’s resolution? Well, if you are, you might be a white supremacist. Okay, not really. Not at all, actually, but according to Natalia Mehlman Petrzela, the author of the book Fit Nation: The Gains and Pains of America’s Exercise Obsession, which comes out next month, American exercise trends reinforce white supremacy. Petrzela explains this ridiculousness in an interview with Time Magazine.

Remember this story the next time your progressive, blue-haired brother-in-law calls you a “racist” for wanting the southern border closed. WARNING: This story is graphic. Illegal immigrant Luis Saavedra Villa, a 44-year-old registered sex offender with a history of previous deportations, snuck back into our country and raped an 8-year-old girl in Wyoming. Villa kidnapped the young girl and brought her to McDonald’s in his truck while her mother was working. He is a known family acquaintance. After their meal, Villa locked the doors of his truck so his young victim couldn’t escape and violently raped the girl. He then forced her to clean her own blood from his truck.

It doesn’t feel like it was so long ago when we saw Sam Bankman-Fried on the cover of so many magazines touting his plan to donate the majority of his wealth. Many folks considered SBF to be the ultimate “Crypto Robin Hood.” SBF was also pushing many other projects in the cryptocurrency space. One of those secondary ventures he promoted was the Solana blockchain. The Solana blockchain is known for offering a platform with quick transaction times and inexpensive fees. Solana was supposed to be an “Ethereum killer” but that hasn’t happened, and it won’t. Solana saw its native token SOL drop by at least 30% at times

Southwest Airlines has been struggling with a major performance fail since before the Christmas weekend, and Democrat officials are doing what they do best: posturing, sniping, and wasting executives’ and labor leaders’ time when they really need to be focused on operations. A massive winter storm swept across the country just ahead of the holiday, tangling travel plans and canceling flights. Southwest accounted for more domestic cancellations than all other airlines combined. Besides the challenging weather conditions, Southwest was already grappling with outdated scheduling software, “tripledemic”-caused staffing shortages, federally mandated work limits on an already reduced workforce, and a challenging schedule of short flights with fast turnarounds. As a consequence, thousands of

The dust of the 2022 midterm contests has barely settled and Democrats — invigorated by the Red Wave that evaporated under extended lax voting policies — are out to make sweeping changes to our nation’s election laws once again. Think back to 2020, when Democratic governors and unsuspecting Republican lawmakers made unprecedented changes to state election policies in the name of Covid that included mandating universal mail-in balloting and a month of early voting. Some states have kept these changes permanently. But Democrats are not satisfied, and why should they be? With their gubernatorial power retained (they kept all but one of the governor’s offices) and newfound control of

Our national security is in the best of hands. Not Biden. Maybe whoever in Afghanistan has an eBay account. German researchers who purchased biometric capture devices on eBay found sensitive US military data stored on their memory cards, The New York Times has reported. That included fingerprints, iris scans, photographs, names and descriptions of the individuals, mostly from Iraq and Afghanistan. Many worked with the US army and could be targeted if the devices fell into the wrong hands, according to the report. They cost under $200. Where did it come from before eBay? That’s a good question. And officially there’s no answer. But one seems to have come most recently from Afghanistan. Metadata

Biological assimilation into femininity has long been the final frontier for transgender activists — a Rubicon they had not yet been able to fully cross. Aspirational transgenders can get various sordid surgeries to appear more feminine; they can adopt feminine social roles, but they could never really become fully biologically female. This nags at the LGBTQ+++™ community something fierce, as biological reality always belies the religious conviction that “transgender women are women,” full-stop. They wish they could menstruate because, like transgender Pinocchios, they want desperately to be real girls, despite the deep-seated and dysphoric knowledge that their goal is impossible.

Shkreli, who served five years in federal prison after being convicted of securities fraud in 2017, said Bankman-Fried needs to change his appearance if he is to survive being locked up. To do that, Shkreli suggested the 30-year-old fallen crypto whiz kid shave off his wild hair and deepen his voice to fit into the “very testosterone-filled, masculine place.” “Sam is going to have a lot of issues because he is a bit of an effeminate guy and his demeanor —

The proliferation of pro-crime bail funds that seek to free criminals in states and municipalities that haven’t followed New York’s footsteps in eliminating bail has led to a lot of misery and suffering. But then one man did something about it. He stood up and fought back against the millionaire pro-crime lobby responsible. And he won a partial victory. This is a David vs. Goliath story. The media would love if it weren’t Goliath. That’s one reason this is hardly getting any coverage. "The Bail Project posted a $3,000 bond for Rashawn Gaston-Anderson in December of 2021.

PALO ALTO, Calif. — Amid death threats and sudden global infamy, accused FTX fraudster Sam Bankman-Fried and his parents have turned their posh Stanford home into a heavily guarded fortress. The family is shelling out roughly $10,000 a week to have a private Bay Area security firm patrol the leafy, 3,000-square-foot residence with several armed guards working around the clock, sources told The Post. “They’re nervous,” one source said. “There have been death threats. They’re not taking any chances.” Bankman-Fried threw cryptocurrency into chaos with the collapse of his FTX exchange, which came amid federal prosecutors investigating his alleged illegal use of investors’ money to prop up his Alameda hedge fund.

This is one of those stories that you’re certain is from the Babylon Bee, and that is stunning in its implications when it turns out to be the truth. In this case, the truth is that, in accordance with UN and WEF climate recommendations, the city of Oxford (home to the famed university) approved plans mandating that citizens may not drive more than 15 minutes distance from their homes without permission. It’s called the “15 Minute City” and is intended to reduce auto emissions. Mostly, though, it will reduce liberty, which is what climate change madness has always been about.

According to Chris Whipple’s new book, “The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House,” Biden does not trust the Secret Service because some of them allegedly do not support him politically. “A bigger problem was Biden’s discomfort with his Secret Service detail; some of them were MAGA sympathizers.
