This is an interesting read about not only the impossibility of satisfying the environmentalists, the green new deal, etc, what about the degree of corruption that such nonsense pushes us to.

Susie’s got this one exactly right over at Red State:

The freedoms guaranteed by our Bill of Rights aren’t just foundational — they are fundamental to our survival as a nation. We know that. So why are so many on the left — including the legacy media — seemingly so hellbent on chipping away at them? The obvious answer is that there is something they value over and above these essential liberties — they may cloak it in terms of “safety,” but the inescapable conclusion is that it comes back to power. And speech that counters — or even just questions — their narrative poses a threat to that. So it must be squelched.

And they’re not even subtle about it anymore. Big Government has formed an unholy alliance with Big Tech and they’re trying six ways from Sunday to silence any dissent.

RedState and other right-leaning media have been pushing back and will continue to do so. But these latest developments demonstrate that this isn’t just about resistance from the right against the party in power. Even some on the center-left are waking up to these dangers. If ever there were a time to make a stand, this is it.

That’s a position that this blog has always taken and will never retreat from.

A sitting United States senator, particularly one in a leadership role, should be the last one to be calling for silencing a free press. But that’s what chuckles did the other day.

That alone should tell you that they are desperately afraid of the truth coming out.

It’s all falling apart now for the democrats. The entire j6 scenario that they tried to sell the American people is going down in flames.

The video seems at odds with the portrayal of Chansley’s conduct at the plea hearing and in the government’s case. And the video, of course, was not complete as to everything he did that day, but it did seem inconsistent. Surely the feds had turned it over to Chansley’s defense prior to him making the decision to plead guilty—the weight of the government evidence is one of the things any defendant would consider. And certainly the defense counsel knew about the video to argue for a lighter sentence, and the Judge knew as well, right? Well tonight Chansley’s attorney was on Tucker, and he denied that the video was ever turned over to the defense:Well, go and read the whole thing. Put be aware that you have been lied to about every aspect of this case. They withheld evidence that didn’t match their narrative.

If something needs to be normalized, it’s not normal.

Have you ever noticed that the majority of the people that are screaming about how the world is overpopulated, live in the big city? Kind of makes you wonder if they’re seeing the big picture, doesn’t it?

It all makes much more sense when you realize that you are the carbon they’re trying to reduce.

When government runs healthcare, every healthcare decision is political.

Enforced equality of outcome requires a total lack of freedom.

Every great country, every great culture in world history has had a religion at its philosophical center.

America as such could never have been founded with Islam as its philosophical center, nor Buddhism, nor any of the pantheistic religions, nor atheism.

America most certainly would not exist as such without Martin Luther and his concept of the sovereignty of the individual.

The more we move away from those foundations, the more we get into problems.

Isn’t it interesting how we have such a hard time eliminating child porn from the internet? And yet we don’t seem to have all that much of a problem deplatforming, blocking and in fact prosecuting anyone who dares to question the actions of government regarding covid-19, Southern border security, inflation, the Biden crime family, and so on?

Your feelings are largely irrelevant.

You cannot be whatever you want to be.

Gender studies are complete waste of time money and effort.

You cannot change your sex. (Again, your feelings are largely irrelevant.)

The idea that you have a right to something simply because you exist is complete hogwash.

You have the absolute right to live as you please within those boundaries, assuming that it infringes on nobody else’s rights. You do not have the right to demand everyone else accept your choice.

If you live in the United States you’re already in the 1%.

Government cannot create anything. The only thing it can do is impede creativity.

Government cannot give you anything without stealing it from someone else, and will invariably keep some of it for itself, in that process.

The long list of notables thought to be the smartest guys in the room includes Mao, Stalin, Hitler, Casto, Maduro, Obama, and following their lead into oblivion seemed like a good idea at the time.

Wow… Reality.

What a concept!!!

It’s time that the Democrats were held responsible for the increased prices on everything of late. They are the ones that caused it. The war on oil was merely the opening salvo.

I’ve been saying this since the beginning. Jonathan Turley takes it a step further:

The Wall Street Journal reports that the Energy Department has concluded that the COVID pandemic most likely arose from a laboratory leak. The conclusion is reportedly based on a classified intelligence report recently provided to the White House and key members of Congress. Many will be exploring why the scientific evidence of a lab leak was so slow to emerge from intelligence agencies.

I guess my first question is why are we hearing about this through the energy department? After all, the energy department is not exactly the first place I’d look for information about a virus. That’s kind of like our erstwhile transportation secretary worrying about racism at construction sites.

I guess with all the White House directed shutdown of energy supplies, the energy department doesn’t have a whole bunch to do anymore.

Anyway; read the whole thing.

I will only add that it appears now that Justice for those perpetrating this fraud as well as Justice for those originally arranging for this virus being created is out of our reach. By the time we get enough information to work on everybody involved will have been dead for 75 to 100 years, rather like the JFK murder…. Which domestically speaking involved many of the same organizations.

Of course, the question now becomes how many of the current questions about the CIA the doj etc and their political activities are being hidden from us? And, why?

Eric Florack on March 1st, 2023

And of course the reason that she lost is we are all racists and sexists and bigots. It is absolutely nothing to do whatsoever with her tragically laughable performance in office.

Of course, she seems to forget that the people that rejected her at the polls yesterday are by and large the same ones that elected her a few very long years ago.

(addendum… Her entire statement is rendered laughable in light of who it is she lost to.)

I’d like to think that she’ll be serving Big Macs pretty quick. On the other hand, I don’t know if I trust her enough with them to buy one.

At what point are Joe Biden and the Democrats going to be held responsible?

Eric Florack on February 22nd, 2023
If Joe Biden were to identify as a woman tomorrow, would that mean that Don Lemon would finally admit that Joe Biden was past his prime?

However that may be, doesn’t it strike you that Don Lemon expressing his opinions about women is rather like a vegan commenting on the quality of steak?

Word is, Joe Biden is having a problem coming up with a campaign manager for his supposedly intended re-election campaign. As of this writing, I’m aware of three different Democrat party strategists who have turned down an opportunity to run his campaign. Raising the question:

Have even Democrat party ideologues begun to recognize the sinking ship that is SS Biden?

The larger question to my mind however, is at what point do these left-wing ideologues begin to recognize that Joe Biden’s failure is not because Democrat party policies were not implemented properly, but that they were implemented perfectly? Thereby, the next question that comes up, would a Democrat with any other name do better? I think we both know the answer to that one.

Why is it that Donald Trump’s press secretaries…  Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kayleigh McEnany… caught serious flack when they joined Fox News? Remember how the left was screaming bloody murder about a “revolving door” and how Fox was an extension of the Trump White House?

Why the silence about Jen Psaki’s employment at MSNBC, or for that matter, of Symone D. Sanders?

Over at legal insurrection, they give the rather obvious answer. Yes.

You know, there been a lot of train derailments lately. And I mean an awful lot. There has been far more than usual the last couple years.

You should perhaps consider the idea that there is an organized effort behind this. We are seeing supply chain issues across the board that are far deeper than we saw during the pandemic.

We see pipelines being closed down drilling being cut back wore on American energy being waged by our federal government with pipelines being closed down and so on. We are now down to the only way to move crude oil in many cases is the railroads. But thanks to what takes on every appearance of an organized effort, that’s problematic as well.

Our transportation secretary doesn’t seem to have a clue as to what is and is not important. We have an environmental and transportation disaster on our hands and yet his focus is on supposed racism at construction sites?

Yeah. It’s that stupid.

The EPA is on site but is giving the locals no answers whatsoever despite having shut down the whole town. If you talk to the locals there you’ll find that they are very annoyed at what the federal government’s been doing and not doing. There are situation handling leaving a lot to be desired by the lights of the townspeople.

One of the more obvious takeaways from this is the folly of focusing our means of delivering the nation’s energy into one sector… In this case, railroads.

But that assessment makes the assumption that exploitation of those vulnerabilities wasn’t always the plan.

Think of it this way… If you wanted to bring America to a crashing halt economically speaking, and while you’re at it weaken the resistance to an invasion and take over, how would you act differently than what we are seeing here?

Obviously there should be serious concern for the people of East Palestine Ohio and those downstream from that event. The larger fear however is the sheer number of sabotage related incidents involving train derailments around the country.

And the thing is, if we take the total lack of comments on the subject from the Federal government, they’re not even looking at that.

Eric Florack on February 16th, 2023
Could this be more of trying to disrupt the supply chain? With all of these things happening at once it’s kind of difficult to believe that it’s anything less than that.
