The press and the left want us to believe that inflation and economic woes created by the rise in oil prices is related to Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. The rise in oil prices was taking place before Biden coerced Putin to invade. In January of 2021, oil prices were in the $50 per barrel range. In January of 2022 the price of a barrel of oil exceeded $90. Putin invaded Ukraine in late February of 2022. The price of a barrel of oil today is $85 a barrel.
During the 2020 campaign Biden said, “We are going to get rid of fossil fuels.” He set about doing that immediately after he was inaugurated. Remember he was fraudulently elected, wrongfully certified, and went about getting rid of fossil fuels on the first day of his illegitimate regime.
The results were higher fuel prices, higher inflation, food shortages, and the beginning of an economic turndown that brought about a recession and serious signs of bringing about a depression. Home interest rates went from 2.5% to over 7% and ended home construction. The cost of fertilizer for farmers more than doubled.
Now winter is coming and the claims of the climate change hoaxers that the earth is warming at an alarming pace. Those people who live where the winters get cold, are concerned about how they will stay warm this winter. They know climate change, or warning the hoaxers say is happening, will be of no value to them. The cost to them of staying alive has gone way up if they can get the fuel. Food and other goods will also increase in cost if they can even be found. Trucks, most trucks use diesel for fuel, will have to move food and goods from point A to point B.
This is all going to be more expensive as diesel fuel is in very short supply thanks to Biden’s policy of “getting rid of fossil fuels”.
A seriously low U.S. and global diesel supply is likely to drive up fuel costs and worsen inflation, raising concerns as the cold weather months approach.
“The national numbers for distillates are pretty tight,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy.
“It’s uncomfortable. That doesn’t mean that you’re going to see widespread outages, but if we get a bout of cold weather, things could be challenging.”
Analysts say that a confluence of factors, long bubbling beneath the surface, are now coming to a head as colder temperatures bring more seasonal demand for diesel, a fuel that powers trucks and buses and is also used in heating.
“This is the start of heating oil season. This is when demand really starts picking up as we enter the winter months,” said Debnil Chowdhury, the head of North and Latin American refining and marketing research at S&P Global Commodity Insights.
The country has about 25 days’ worth of diesel left; a level that’s considered very low. De Haan said that normally, the country’s supply is closer to the “low to mid 30s” in terms of the number of days remaining.
The left is saying this is the fault of Putin. The facts tell us it is because Biden took the United States from being energy independent, an energy exporter, to energy dependent, an energy importer. This is because the left is using the climate change hoax to destroy the American economy and bring about wealth distribution per their commitment to the Marxist agenda. It is all a part of the fundamental transformation promised by the left.
'British policing has lost its way' Police told to end the woke gestures and fight crime’
British policing has lost its way and needs wholesale reform, former Met Detective Chief Inspector David Spencer warned. He told Tory leadership candidates they must take radical action if they want to become the party of law and order again. Mr. Spencer said: “If the past few years have shown us anything, it is that British policing has lost its way.”
“An overhaul of police leadership is needed which is capable of delivering for the public. When institutions become closed shops they cease to be effective - this cannot happen with the institution that exists to protect the public from crime and disorder.
“We need to breathe new life into British policing so that new approaches to crime can be applied, particularly to growing areas like cyber crime and online fraud, which are already costing Britons and the wider economy billions each year.”
The British are saying, “Making our streets safer has always been central to my mission to level up this country, because everyone should have the security, confidence and opportunity that comes from having a safe street and a safe home, wherever they live.
“We are cracking down on vile gangs and putting dangerous offenders behind bars for longer - and at the heart of these efforts are the 20,000 new officers who will be out on the streets providing the firepower for years to come in the fight against crime.”
What a novel idea. The police should be fighting crime, not political opinion. Will the American Left hear this? No they will not, because it is their goal for crime to increase so they can destroy our civil society and remake it a Marxist totalitarian state.
We must understand that our Constitution says that freedom of speech cannot be abridged. I have the right to state that the 2020 election was stolen. Not only do I have the right to say that, but the evidence proves that I am stating the truth.
I also have the right to say that I do not agree that marriage is between two people of the same sex, that I do not believe anybody has the right to kill a baby even if that baby is not born, that schools should not be groomers for pedophiles, that pedophilia is a dastardly and damaging deed of a sick adult against an innocent child, that programming children to believe they are homosexual or transsexual is an abomination, and that raiding my home and arresting people for doing so is against the United States Constitution.
We would have far less crime if the police were spending their time fighting crime, if criminals were put in jail, if convicted criminals were kept in jail, if police were to arrest criminals based on their act of committing the crime and not take into consideration their race, if criminals were arrested when looting, murdering, and committing arson in the name of political protests, and if criminals like the Biden's were investigated based on the evidence of the crime and not their political position.
Thank you Britain for showing the way. Freedom Loving Americans continue to insist police investigate crime and not be the arm of the Marxist woke agenda as demanded by the American left (Democrats). The Department of Justice and the FBI must also be transformed back to crime fighters and not political enforcers.
We have been told that the future is green energy or wind and solar. Germany had taken pride in its leadership in this dream. Germany's economy and climate ministry presented a package of measures in April of 2022 to speed up the expansion of renewable energy, as the need to reduce the country's heavy reliance on Russian fossil fuels added urgency to its green transition plans they claimed. The package envisaged green energy accounting for 80% of the power mix in Europe's biggest economy by 2030, up from about 40% now and a previous target of 65%.
This was the plan, this was the dream, this is what was sold to the people of Germany and what is being sold to people around the world except in places like China and Russia. That is because the leaders of China and Russia are realists. They also understand the control it gives them over the rest of the world as nations like Germany, well actually the European Union, Canada, Britain, and the United States buy into this fallacy.
Now for the rest of the story or the reality, that is that green energy cannot power the economies of an industrial world.
Wind Farm in Germany Is Being Taken Down for Expansion of Coal Mine
In the throes of an energy crisis, a German energy company is moving forward with plans to dismantle a wind farm adjacent to its coal mine in order to expand operations. The removal of one of the wind farm’s eight wind turbines occurred last week, with two more coming down in months and the rest getting removed by the end of 2023.
The realities that abandoning fossil fuels lead to lack of power, which Germans will learn about more this winter, which people in New England are realizing as heating oil is now being rationed, which all of America will realize as diesel fuel becomes less available and increasingly expensive, will result in more and more actions like is now being done in Germany.
Goodbye pipe dream of abandoning fossil fuels, and welcome abundant energy, warm homes, and lower prices for everything.
We hear time after time that we must save our democracy. It is because we have transformed to a democracy that our nation is in the position it is. Today our government has assumed unlimited power. The legislative branch, the executive branch, and the judicial branch ignore Artielc I Section 8 and the 10th amendment. It is assumed by all that the federal government can have whatever power the majority or those in power declare it can have.
Today our government ignores that the Constitution specifically states that the legislative branch, the executive branch, and the judicial branch have no power to infringe or to abridge the liberties given to each individual by God. The prohibitions that protect our liberties are ignored along with the 9th amendment.
The rallying cry, predominantly from the left right now but also from some uninformed members of the right, is save our democracy. Democracy is dictatorship our founders told us. Dictatorship is one party rule. Communists place their party as the only party when they gain control, control they have gained because of democracy.
If Republicans vote, they are killing democracy. If they don’t vote, they are killing democracy. The only way to “save democracy,” writes The Washington Post’s Max Boot, is to empower one-party rule — a position that probably sounds counterintuitive to anyone with a middle-school education.
Democracy does not, cannot last long is what our founders told us. It does not, cannot last long because of what is happening today, that is the insistence for total conformity or one-party rule. That is dictatorship.
In our republic, the powers of government were limited by the Constitution. The very definition of republic is that the Supreme ruler of the land is the law. Our Supreme ruler is the Constitution, and the Constitution greatly limits the power of the government. In a democracy, the Supreme ruler of the land is the majority or those in power and they have no limitations or restrictions on their power.
Democracy begins as a dictatorship, that is a dictatorship of the majority over the minority that quickly becomes a dictatorship of the few over the many. This is the very reason the Democrats now use the rally cry “Save our Democracy.” They want one party rule, they want dictatorship.
The leftist political faction, that is the Democrats, in the United States has promised for over a century that it is their intent to transform the United States from a republic, from an individualist nation to a democracy, to a collectivist nation. That intent was clearly stated on October 30, 2008, when Comrade Obama said that they were five days from fundamentally transforming the United States of America. The transformation to which the Comrade referred was to complete the transformation that began over a century ago or to transform the United States from a republic to a democracy, from an individualist nation to a collectivist nation.
This is an excerpt from an article I saw on the internet entitled, “Conformity Or Collectivism: Is Individualism Or Collectivism?” No author was named. The article said, “Mark Twain once said, ‘A round man cannot be expected to fit in a square hole right away. He must have time to modify his shape.’ This quote revolves around the idea of conformity. Conformity or collectivism is the tendency to align attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors with those around you. It's a powerful force that can take the form of overt social pressure or subtler unconscious influence. As much as people think of themselves as individuals, the fact is that we're driven to fit in, and that usually means going with the flow. The problem with conformity or collectivism is the loss of individuality.
Conformists are also known as sheep and the leaders or individualistic supporters are known as lions in society. Is individualism or collectivism more beneficial to society as well as the individual? Where can a balance between the two be found?
Opponents of the collectivism idea say that there is no room for individuality when a society conforms. Individualism is the idea that the individual’s life belongs to him and that he has an inalienable right to live it as he sees fit, to act on his own judgment, to keep and use the product of his effort.”
This is the greatest conflict we have in this mid-term election. Those on the left are advocates for collectivism, conformity, communism. This is what Karl Marx meant when he claimed society must be a classless society. The classless society to which Marx referred would be a society where all people thought the same, where all people conformed to collectivism, communism. Equity would reign supreme. We would all have the same, think the same, behave the same, we would all be the same.
Individualism, individual liberty, and freedom is the antithesis of collectivism. The United States was founded as an individualist nation. The founders recognized that each individual was created by God as an individual. Each individual has their own thoughts, their own goals, and desires to live their own life, make their own choices, and have their own thoughts and express those thoughts.
This mid-term election has brought these two conflicting ideologies to a head. Will the principle of individualism prevail, or will the transformation to collectivism be supported and continued.
The Democrats advocate for transformation and a continuation down “The Road to Tyranny” or collectivism, conformity, and communism. The Conservatives or individualists are supporting not just a slowdown of the transformation, but a complete repudiation of the transformation and turn once again to individualism and restore our republic.
Juan Williams: The GOP is embracing Christian nationalism.
If Juan Williams and others of the left would study American history, that is why and how we were founded and what the founders wanted for us, they would understand that Christian nationalism was the basis on which we were founded.
Yes, we were founded as a Christian nation. We were established as a republic, and we were told that to remain a republic would require a moral electorate and that moral people must be elected as representatives. The left has promised to transform the United States from a republic to a democracy and ultimately to a collectivist or communist nation. To accomplish this transformation the left has attacked morality, it has attacked the family, and it has attacked the Bible believing churches.
The left has told the American people that good is evil and that evil is good. The left has championed murdering the unborn child, promoting, and protecting perversions, grooming children for pedophiles, and protecting the criminal at the expense of the victim and society.
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” John Adams
“The Christian religion, in its purity, is the basis, or rather the source of all genuine freedom in government. . . . and I am persuaded that no civil government of a republican form can exist and be durable in which the principles of that religion have not a controlling influence.” Noah Webster
“The Bible is the best of all books, for it is the word of God and teaches us the way to be happy in this world and in the next. Continue therefore to read it and to regulate your life by its precepts.” John Jay
“Whereas true religion and good morals are the only solid foundations of public liberty and happiness . . . it is hereby earnestly recommended to the several States to take the most effectual measures for the encouragement thereof.” Continental Congress, 1778
“The great rule of conduct for us in regard to foreign nations is in extending our commercial relations, to have with them as little political connection as possible.” George Washington
“If there be one principle more deeply rooted than any other in the mind of every American, it is, that we should have nothing to do with conquest.” Thomas Jefferson
So yes, Juan Williams and others who aspire to transform the United States from an individualist nation, we were called to be a Christian nation that did not get involved in foreign entanglements. We were warned that if our country adopted the policies Juan Williams, and his fellow collectivists or communists desire, our nation would not, could not remain a free nation but would succumb to despotic tyranny as do all collectivist nations.
What is an extremist? Is it extreme to believe that liberties should not be abridged or infringed? Is it extreme to believe that the power of government must be limited? Is it extreme to believe we should honor the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence?
When history has proven time after time that lower taxes and less regulations bring economic growth, increased government revenues, and much less poverty, why do those who claim they favor "the people" always fight to raise taxes, increase regulations, when it always brings economic contraction and increase poverty?
How do those who claim to be followers of Christ support the murder of the unborn when the Bible clearly states that we must not murder and that for any who would harm children it would be better for them if they had a stone tied to them and they were thrown into the sea?
When the definition of indoctrination is to teach people what to think and not how to think does a person deny that teaching the woke ideology is not indoctrination?
History has prove that strong family units greatly increase the quality of life including much less crime, so why does the left insist on destroying the family?
Communism has always brought crime, poverty, despotic dictatorship so why does the American left continue to move the United States to communism by calling for democracy which is indispensable to socialism which is the gateway to communism according to Lenin?
Our founders rejected democracy and gave us a republic because a republic preserves individual freedom and liberty, so why do people insist that we become a democracy when it has always proved to bring dictatorship?
Why do freedom loving Americans who believe in limited government and no abridging or infringing our liberties, support RINOS like McConnell and McCarthy for leadership positions?
Biden world privately thinks McCarthy could fold on Ukraine aid.
When Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy — the likely speaker of a GOP House next year (hopefully not) — suggested this week that he’d pull back on U.S. funding for Ukraine’s battle against Russia, it wasn’t the first signal to the Biden administration that Republican lawmakers are leery of prolonged financial support for Kyiv.
Whoever in the Biden world believes that McCarthy would fold on Ukraine aid and virtually every other statement McCarthy has made about what he would do to fight the wrongs of the collectivists, has McCarthy pegged. McCarthy is a protégé of Boehner and Ryan. These three like McConnell and Romney are all big government beltway believers. They are RINOS.
If anybody has followed McCarthy over the years you quickly understand that McCarthy has as his number one priority, Kevin McCarthy. He does not lead on controversial issues, but puts his finger in the air to test the wind. He then makes non declarative, noncommittal statements so he can switch his position if the wind blows another way.
Trump learned that the Republican party is filled with RINOS. He named many to his cabinet and placed others in influential positions. When the time came for his administration to unite against the communist filled deep state, the RINOS deserted him.
A RINO believes in collectivist and globalist ideas. A RINO will proclaim that we must adhere to the Constitution, but forgets that the Constitution specifically limits the power of government, prevents the government from abridging or infringing on the rights of the people, demands rule of law, and requires the government to be open and transparent. Democrats and RINOS disagree with the Constitution on every one of these issues. When the Constitution is thwarted, “The Road to Tyranny” is the result.
The only difference between McCarthy and McConnell is age. Both are RINOS. Both believe in big government that controls the lives, choices, and thoughts of the people. McCarthy will fold on the Ukraine issue and every issue that would mean restoring our republic and rejecting democracy which Lenin told us is indispensable to socialism and socialism is the gateway to communism.
The leftist movement has shown an irrational hatred for children. They seek to kill them and harm them in every possible way. I hope somebody can explain the reasoning behind this evil behavior.
The left has determined that killing the unborn child is a choice or it is health care. The left tells us there must be no limitations to murdering the unborn, and now they tell us that children up to the age of 28 days must be subjected to this choice or health care as well.
The left is now using the China Virus Vaccination hoax to destroy the development of the children. It was known early that the China Virus was not contracted by nor transmitted by children. Nevertheless, these kids were kept out of school and forced to wear masks. A generation of kids was greatly damaged by this irrational behavior. The forced mask wearing greatly contributed to this damage.
Now we are learning that vaccinated kids are at great danger from dying, from other health issues, and from damage to their reproductive abilities. Despite study after study that proves the shots are damaging our children, the CDC just voted that children should receive these shots that are proven harmful to them. Why?
And know our children are being groomed for pedophiles. We are being told that pedophilia is normal and natural and must be protected and promoted despite knowing that children that are sexually abused suffer from the damage it does to them for the rest of their lives. Why?
Children are being encouraged to declare that they were born in the wrong body. These children have no idea what that really means, but the left is saying that is not important. The left tells us that kids must be able to choose to have their bodies mutilated, damaged, at ages as young as 9 years old. We know that people who were transformed at any age, commit suicide at a much greater rate, they regret their decision, and they have mental problems for the rest of their life. Why?
The left has determined to damage our children in any and every way they can if the child survives the threat of being killed by abortion and survives the first 28 days after being born. Now the child must hope that their parents are strong enough and wise enough to not allow their child to receive the shot that is certain to either kill the child or damage them. We must hope that wise people prevent them from being used by pedophiles, and that they be allowed to mature and not have their bodes mutilated even before puberty.
Why do you on the left so despise children. Is it all children you despise, or is it just other people’s children? Do you understand what will happen to society if you continue to kill kids, groom them, and mutilate them? Are you capable of rationally explaining why you do what you do to these kids? Please explain.
That is correct. Democracy and freedom have never co-existed for long except in very isolated situations. Democracy is by its very nature a dictatorship; it is a dictatorship of the majority over the minority. Because the majority can redefine who can and cannot participate, it will redefine so those in control at the time will be able to keep and consolidate their power. A wise person would say that forms of democracy have existed for decades and perhaps centuries, how does that happen.
The longest lasting form of democracy would perhaps be the United Kingdom. They are a unique nation that is however in transition. The UK has been a very traditional people. This tradition has been maintained because the youth are taught to revere the traditions. This is changing because of the influx of legal and illegal immigrants who have no respect for nor reverence for these traditions. This would be the influx of Muslim immigrants who are determined to bring their traditions and beliefs rather than assimilate to the traditions of the UK. This scenario is destroying much of Europe, France, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, and others.
The United States was purposefully formed as a republic. In a republic the power or wishes of the majority is subservient to the law or in our case, the Constitution. The majority does not have the authority to give the government more power than what is allowed by the Constitution. The majority does not have the authority to abridge or infringe the liberties guaranteed by the Constitution to the people. When the government assumes the power it was not given, when the government abridges and infringes the liberties of the people, no longer are we a republic, but we have been transformed into a democracy.
This transformation takes place primarily through indoctrination, propaganda, and intimidation. When the people are no longer taught the reasons we were formed to be a republic, when the people no longer respect or adhere to the law and the Constitution, and when the people accept voting practices that can be manipulated and encourage fraud, the will of those who wish the transformation to occur is greatly enhanced. When the republic is no longer and democracy fully exists, a dictatorship of the majority is now in place and limited government and unlimited rights of the people no longer exists.
Freedom and democracy cannot co-exist. The majority or those in power thirst for power and will do what is necessary to secure it. When the Constitution has been disregarded and there is no limitation on the power of government or the protection of liberties no longer exists, dictatorship results.
This is why our founders unanimously rejected democracy. They told us that democracy does not, cannot last long. The majority of the people quickly becomes the majority of a select group. That is dictatorship. It could be benevolent dictatorship or tyrannical dictatorship, but it is dictatorship. In the United States today we have an illegitimately elected regime that believes in tyrannical dictatorship. It is their position that there is no power the government cannot assume and there is no liberty they cannot and will not abridge, infringe, or eliminate.
Two things are necessary to transition us to a republic once again. The schools must be transformed to education centers once again and elections must again become election day and not election season with tight controls on one legal voter and one vote, with paper ballots only, and closely supervised vote counting.
I really should have said three things are necessary. The third and most important is that we the people have the will and desire to be a free people once again. We must remember that to be free requires a people to be interested, informed, and involved. To live under a dictatorial democracy only requires a compliant and subservient people. Each of us must ask ourselves if we want republic or democracy. If you answer republic, you must commit to being interested, informed, and involved. If you answer democracy continue to be compliant and subservient.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
