As I said before, Green Energy is a fraud designed to make us spend money to buy non-US countries’ fuels and bankrupt American families, and even bankrupt our country. Who would want to do that? Maybe the people who produce the oil. Is there anyone who thinks that the closing of American oil production will help the world’s carbon pollution Oil users will simply turn to different sources. The world will not become greener, in fact, other countries do not protect the oil production environment as we do. Only when overall oil production is reduced because the world is using less oil will any improvement be seen.
Our great President is telling us to avoid the high gas prices by using Electric cars. However, the fact is that it takes energy to run those electric cars. That energy comes from fossil fuels, not green energy. Additionally, not every American has the $50,000 to $60,000 to buy that electrical car so they will keep using the old clunker. That old clunker uses more gas and pollutes more. They will also become a little poorer but will they vote democratic? We are now seeing $5 gas prices and looking for $6 or even $7 per gallon. How can any business survive? They must raise prices or go broke. Even McDonald’s is having to raise prices, everything is going to cost more, a lot more. Now that we understand that everything will cost more and in many cases a lot more, we will then need to raise wages so people can live. It is a vicious circle with no end in sight.
I wonder how many of these phony environmentalists are driving electric cars. Even Hunter Biden traded his 140k hybrid electric car for a Porsche. The sad thing is that we have the fuel and energy resources but Biden will not use these resources. Our President Joe Biden has decided to shut down our production of energy and block the pipeline from Canada and even pipelines in the U.S. The President did just what the Greenies wanted and to the hell with the American people. Shutting down our resources has done nothing to make the world greener but it has made Americans poorer.
All of this makes us think something else is going on. Environmental groups such as the Sierra Club have done great work in the PAST. I was even a member way back and believed, as did many Americans, that preserving our county’s wilderness was important. But with new people and new funding, they have shifted their efforts to become rabid and radical anti-America businesses and even want to degrade our country’s standard of living. They were people we trusted to preserve America not destroy it. People who claim to be environmentalists fly around in private planes while the rest of us fly economy. Those that voted for Joe Biden can take the credit.
Have any of you seen the signs on gas pumps with the sticker near the price with a picture of Joe pointing and saying “I did That?” Funny, but sad, taking America down the tubes is no joke. Recent polls show Biden at a 40% approval rating, which makes you wonder who that 40% could possibly be. America has been the country people all over the world looked to as the road to freedom and the way up and out of poverty. Where freedom was not just a word but a way of life. A country where you could work your butt off and get ahead. Today that great idea is being turned into “the great giveaway.” They take from those who earn it and give it to those who do not give a damn. There is a political party in our country that wants to give the wealth that you earned to someone else and in some cases not even an American.

I have been in Saudi Arabia the last two days and their gas costs more than ours. They also acknowledge that they are the number two oil producer behind the US. In fact, they are diversifying their economy by opening the country up to tourism. They realize that fossil fuels are on the way out. They have had a lucrative run for over 80 years but the end is in sight.
By the way Mike, your buddy Trump is still colluding with Putin. He asked him yesterday to help him find dirt on the Biden’s.
THIS IS FOR YOU DAVID;
March 31, 2022
In 1895, a 32-year old entrepreneur in New York City bought a failing newspaper and hatched a bold plan to turn it around.
The newspaper industry was cutthroat, especially in New York. There were at least 16 other daily newspapers in circulation, and there was fierce competition for readers’ attention.
But the young entrepreneur had an idea: thrill readers with tales of death, destruction, and brutality in the Cuban War for Independence against Spain.
Cuba was a Spanish colony at the time, but revolutionary forces had been fighting for independence for several years. Few people in the US really cared about Cuba. But the new publisher vowed to make them care.
His name was William Randolph Hearst. And his paper, the New York Morning Journal, constantly thrust Cuba in his readers’ faces.
Their stories were full-blown sensationalism. By early 1898, Hearst’s Journal was printing outright fabrications of atrocities committed by Spanish troops in Cuba, in an effort to whip up public support for the United States to join the war.
The government played along. While ‘war crimes’ did not yet exist, US President William McKinley escalated tensions by accusing Spain of atrocities, saying in a speech that “the civilized code of warfare has been disregarded.”
Then, on February 15, 1898, a US naval vessel known as the Maine exploded and sank in Havana Harbor off the coast of Cuba. 268 sailors died.
Several investigations were conducted, and to this day there is still nothing conclusive explaining how the explosion took place. It’s entirely possible that the explosion was caused by the Maine’s on-board fuel.
But Hearst (along with many other papers) jumped to publish stories claiming the Maine was sunk by a Spanish torpedo, and they continued agitating for the US to join the war.
Thanks to the effective media propaganda, most Americans were in favor of war. The newspapers had cast Spain as the evil aggressor, and its commanding general, Valeriano Weyler, was routinely called a “butcher”.
The newspapers told Americans that the fight against Spain was a necessary one… that it was a matter of moral righteousness— a crusade of good against evil.
They finally got their wish in April 1898 when the Spanish-American War broke out.
There are a lot of similarities with the media today.
The level of trust in the media is already laughably low. There was the obvious Hunter Biden laptop coverup, which most mainstream media refused to even mention during the US Presidential election in 2020.
Then there were the outright lies in the Russia collusion hoax, for which the New York Times was even awarded the ‘esteemed’ Pulitzer Prize.
(Coincidentally, the Pulitzer is named after Joseph Pulitzer, a newspaper publisher who also fabricated lies in the late 1800s and agitated for war against Spain.)
Then there’s the case of Biden appointee Tracy Stone-Manning, who was nominated last year to head up the federal government’s Bureau of Land Management.
Stone-Manning is a former eco-terrorist who participated in violent campaigns against forestry workers in her youth.
This isn’t some wild conspiracy theory; Stone-Manning has admitted to wrongdoing, including sending violent threats to the US federal Forestry Service. She ultimately avoided prosecution and saved herself by ratting out her associates.
But a recent Freedom of Information Act request revealed that NBC News colluded with the Biden Administration to go easy on Tracy Stone-Manning during her confirmation hearing, and whitewash over her terrorist history.
This is pretty incredible…
Think about the media circus a few years ago when US Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh was accused of sexually assaulting someone when he was a teenager.
There was no promise from NBC News (and other mainstream propagandists) to go easy on the allegations against Justice Kavanaugh that went back 30+ years.
Instead, they smeared his name and deemed him guilty.
It’s also noteworthy that, during Kavanaugh’s confirmation hearing, several protestors stormed the Capital and physically accosted United States Senators in order to prevent the Constitutional voting process from occurring.
Yet NBC News declined to label those protestors ‘domestic terrorists’, or to claim that democracy was ‘under attack’ because they had criminally trespassed into the Capitol.
This is the same media which acted as the government mouthpiece during COVID, justifying the public health dictatorship that took over the world.
This is the same media which watched cities burn in 2020 and said the protests were “mostly peaceful”.
And, yes, this is the same media that has routinely pushed America into war. It wasn’t just Spain in 1898.
The United States joined the Vietnam War based on a Gulf of Tonkin skirmish with the North Vietnamese which never actually occurred. But the Johnson administration and intelligence sources said it happened, so the media reported it as fact.
Then there were those supposed Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq, which the media dutifully reported without question and helped push the US into war back in 2003.
Today many in the media are calling for an escalation against Russia. They want a no-fly zone. They cheer the President’s dementia-ridden foreign policy and praise him for impromptu comments that only escalate tensions.
Most of all, they force feed the war in Ukraine, 24/7, as if that’s supposed to be our #1 priority.
Forget about the economy, rising prices, and supply chain dysfunction… and forget about conflict anywhere else in the world. We’re only allowed to care about Ukraine and Putin.
Historically speaking, it is not far-fetched to think the media could help push the world into a major war… and one with potential nuclear ramifications.
It’s not inevitable, but we are closer today than any other time since at least 1962— and certainly closer than even a week ago.
That’s why it is more important than ever to be prepared for whatever the world has in store for us.
And that means crafting a rock solid Plan B to make sure you can respond from a position of strength, whatever crisis comes next.
To your freedom,
Tourism in Saudi Arabia? Will there be guided tours of notable sites such as where infidels are beheaded, the right hands of thief’s are severed, or women are stoned to death.? Reminds me of the old Hollywood tours. Better make reservations in advance.
David – Sorry I was not that conference call, but nobody has to ask Putin for dirt it all around.
Here’s our roll-up of the most ridiculous stories from around the world that are threats to your liberty, risks to your prosperity… and on occasion, inspiring poetic justice.
Governments to Tackle Surging Prices With… More Free Money!
With inflation at 8% and gas prices topping $6 per gallon in some parts of the US, the bright minds in government have come up with a solution: send more stimulus checks!
California Governor Newsom proposes spending $11 billion to send $400 checks to every car owner in the state.
The governor of Maine, “in the face of record high inflation and rising oil” will send $850 checks to Maine residents, redistributing some of the state’s budget surplus.
At the federal level, one politician has proposed a “windfall profit tax on excessive corporate profits” in the oil and gas industry, and to send the tax proceeds back to the American people in the form of a tax rebate.
Another bill proposes sending $100 to each taxpayer (plus $100 for each dependent) each month in 2022 that gas prices average above $4 per gallon.
It’s genius! Refuse to acknowledge that $3,000 in freshly printed stimulus money during 2020-2021 contributed to inflation. Then just do it again!
Then we can do the same thing next year when gas reaches $8 per gallon and inflation is at 16%.
