“A Tsunami of Shutoffs”

Featured image Tens of millions of Americans face the prospect of having their electricity shut off, as they are unable to pay the skyrocketing cost of power. The New York Post reports: More than 20 million households face a “tsunami of shutoffs” after falling behind on their utility bills as the price for electricity skyrockets because of decades-high inflation, experts predict.

Green Nightmares

Featured image Global warming hysteria is lowering living standards around the world, but the real disasters are generally a ways off in the future. If countries actually try to meet their foolish carbon reduction pledges, the result will be a human disaster rarely paralleled in history. A small preview of what is in store comes from Northern Ireland: Northern Ireland will need to lose more than 1 million sheep and cattle to »

Sellout to China In Progress

Featured image The London Times is liberal but not insane, except when it comes to Donald Trump. So it is better than nearly all American newspapers. Here, the Sunday Times blows the whistle on the fantasy of “green” energy: Addis [Ababa] is just one hub in a global web of Chinese influence, control and money that has arisen as the world’s second largest economy races to secure the minerals needed for the »

The Limits of Sanctions

Featured image Sanctions imposed by the U.S. and our NATO allies have brought Russia’s economy to a screeching halt.

Kamala Harris’ woke joke at the Naval Academy

At least Harris limited herself to two »

Wind and Solar Energy Don’t Work

Featured image Leftists fantasize that before long, we can dispense with all reliable energy sources–coal, natural gas, nuclear, even hydro–and run our society entirely on wind and solar, two forms of energy that have been obsolete for 150 years. How can this be, since wind turbines only produce electricity when the wind is blowing sufficiently, which is around 40% of the time, and solar only works when the sun is shining and »

Warren ducks cameras as she gets off private jet

Featured image It’s a ritual. After the Iowa caucuses, those with a “ticket out,” and those who just want to prolong the agony, fly to New Hampshire to campaign. Elizabeth Warren, who has half a ticket out, followed this practice. She did so by private jet. Nothing wrong with that. There are probably few, if any, direct commercial flights from anywhere in Iowa to anywhere in New Hampshire. Anyway, after an exhausting »

The Green Old Socialism

Featured image In a fawning profile in the Washington Post Magazine, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, parted the curtain on the Green New Deal. The piece describes a meeting between Chakrabarti and an emissary from Washington Governor Jay Inslee, who is running for president on a global warming platform: Chakrabarti had an unexpected disclosure. “The interesting thing about the Green New Deal,” he said, “is it wasn’t originally a climate »

For You, AOC, the Answer Is No

Featured image Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, God’s gift to conservatives, is at it again. The Valley Girl socialist says, like, it may not be OK to have children, because, like, the planet is doomed: Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) suggested on Sunday night that people should consider not having children due to climate change because there is a “scientific consensus” that life will be hard for kids. “Our planet is going to hit »
