Representative Ronny Jackson (R-TX), who says he is firmly opposed “to the radical left’s embrace of illegal immigration,” said this weekend that House Republicans would impeach Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
When asked FNC’s “Sunday Morning Futures,” program about impeaching Mayorkas, Jackson replied, “Absolutely, we are going to start the process. He has to go. There’s been no accountability in the administration for anything that they have done, whether it’s been the economy, or COVID, or the disaster overseas in Afghanistan or our border.”
“Mayorkas has got to go, so we’re going to start investigating him,” Jackson noted. “We are going to investigate every decision he’s made. We’re going to use the power of subpoena, we’re going to use the power of the purse and come after Mayorkas, he needs to go.”
“We need to make an example of Mayorkas, and he’ll be just the start of what we do in this new Congress, but he’s absolutely got to go,” he continued. “He’s been a complete absolute disaster, and he has been the lead on making this happen, the border being the disaster that it is.”
“Let’s make no mistake about it, this could not be happening without Biden. Biden and Mayorkas, they are the traffickers in chief right now.”
Jackson, raised in Levelland, Texas worked as a roustabout in the West Texas oilfields to pay his way through undergraduate school at Texas A&M University. Following graduation from medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch, he began active-duty service in the United States Navy.
“I have great respect for those who immigrate to America the legal and proper way,” Jackson has publically stated. “But we are a nation of laws and it is unsafe and unfair to legal immigrants, and indeed all Americans, to live under open border policies.”
Dr. Jackson would ultimately lead the White House Medical Unit as Physician to the President during the Obama and Trump Administrations. In January 2019, President Donald J. Trump appointed him as Chief Medical Advisor and Assistant to the President.
Jackson added, “The coyotes, they move them up through Mexico or from 130 different countries now. They get them to our southern border, and then we take over the logistics. We give them plane tickets, train tickets, bus tickets, cell phones, welfare, schools, health care. We’re creating unbelievable incentives for these people to come here, and they are doing it purposefully. So he has got to go. He is damaging and destroying this country in a variety of ways.”
“We must secure our border and better enforce our existing immigration laws. I will continuously combat any radical policies put forth by the Biden Administration, and be a steadfast advocate for commonsense immigration reforms and enforcement of these laws.”
This month Dr. Jackson introduced the Ensuring America’s Critical Infrastructure Act, which would codify 16 infrastructure sectors as “critical infrastructure.”
These sectors include Chemical, Commercial Facilities, Communications, Critical Manufacturing, Dams, Defense Industrial Base, Emergency Services, Energy, Financial Services, Food and Agriculture, Government Facilities, Healthcare and Public Health, Information Technology, Nuclear Reactors, Materials, and Waste, Transportation systems, and Water and Wastewater systems.
During natural disasters, international conflicts, or public health emergencies our success depends on the strength of these sectors as they are the foundation of American society.
Jackson noted that “Biden’s disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan emboldened our adversaries around the world.”
“This is evident given Russia’s attack on Ukraine, China’s large-scale war games in the South China Sea, the increasing existential threat Iran poses to our partners and allies in the Middle East, and North Korea’s erratic missile launches.”
“Biden’s weak posture on the world stage and negligence here at home has put every American at risk. It is more important than ever that America coordinate its efforts to strengthen the security and resiliency of these 16 critical infrastructure sectors that guarantee America’s safety, prosperity, and well-being. In an era of unprecedented threats and uncertainty, we need a comprehensive approach to ensure our country can overcome physical and cyber threats from our enemies.”
Even with the planned 8.7% “cost of living adjustment” on Social Security come January 2023, Americans will continue to hurt as it’s not near enough to keep up with the Democrats’ inflation figures.
White House Resident Joe Biden, his administration and corporate mainstream media try to keep the political focus on green energy, abortion, student loans and the anti-MAGA causes, while most Americans are concerned about more pressing issues.
Citizen’s primary attention is currently on illegal immigration, inflation, crime and lawful elections. During fiscal year 2022, over 2.4 million unlawful alien encounters have been documented on the southern border.
In 2016, Donald Trump won the nomination against the GOP lineup because he focused on what the majority of America was concerned about. Among his first trips as a candidate was to McAllen, Texas to expose what the media and others were attempting to bury–illegal immigration and high crime.
Even though Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Convention and Deep State (including FBI) attempted everything they could (illegally) do to win that election, they underestimated the amount of fake and harvested ballots they needed to beat Trump.
With New World Order, World Economic Forum, Chinese and George Soros-type funding, they overcompensated with an extreme excess of illegal ballots and activities in 2020.
Here is what the leftist communists (including Democrats, RINOS and Big Media) do not want to report or draw attention to:
ILLEGAL IMIGRATION & DRUG SMUGGLING
In 2022, America has experienced a dangerous 245% increase in illegal aliens from just three countries alone: Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba.
As of today, 94 illegal immigrants on the Terrorist Screening Database were apprehended at ports of entry this fiscal year so far.
Biden’s disapproval rating on immigration is now over 60% with only 36% approving and this is from the RealClearPolitics average. A NewsNation poll indicates Americans believe Republicans will improve the immigration crisis by a 7-point margin.
A Telemundo poll of Florida Hispanic voters shows 50% approve Gov. Ron DeSantis’s (R) decision to fly immigrants from San Antonio to Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts.
Even more alarming (not to mention buried in most Big Media reports) are the latest Department of Homeland Security figures that reveal border crossings were up 27% over 2021, which was the previous all-time record, and 419% over Donald Trump’s last year in office.
Although likely underreported, right at 4.7 million illegal immigrants have crossed the border since Biden took office. This amount is over the population of Louisiana, or Kentucky, or Oregon, or Connecticut, or Utah or 20 other states.
In August, there were 203,597 illegal crossings of our southern border, which is an OVER 300% increase from August 2020.
Also, since Biden entered the White House, drug and human trafficking cartels made an estimated $13 billion smuggling illegal aliens across the border, and more than 850 immigrants died in fiscal 2022 while trying to cross – another record.
In September 2022′ alone, another record high was broken as more than 10,000 pounds of methamphetamine was seized at the border that month.
Fentanyl seizures from October 2020 through September 2021 were at a record breaking 11,201 pounds. One kilogram of fentanyl is equivalent to 500,000 lethal doses, making last year’s seizure equal to 2.5 billion fatal doses blocked from making their way into the country. In the past 12 months, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) doubled the record-high level confiscated a year earlier.
The surge in U.S. Customs and Border Protection seizures at the nation’s border is closely connected to the wave of drug overdose deaths occurring deep inside the U.S., which also hit a new high this year as a result of the prevalence of opioids.
The last figures from the Biden Administration came out in February 2022 and showed that more than 96,000 people died as a result of a drug overdose, up 30% from the previous year. We will likely get the next round of information after the November 2022 elections and probably by March.
Although Democrats and Big Media tend to say consumer confidence is “dim,” the reality is Americans are very concerned about inflation. The Biden Administration continues to punish the nation as Food, Gas and Energy costs continue to rise.
Last Thursday, despite the newly released data, revealed that consumer prices jumped by 8.2% year-over-year last month, Biden actually had the audacity to say he has made “progress” and that inflation really is on a 2% trajectory.
Meanwhile, as of October 26, 2022, American’s 401(k)s are now down 25.3% on average. In total, Biden’s shrinking economy has stolen a combined $2.1 TRILLION from these retirement savings,
Tax dollar paid economists are about as bad at predicting and reporting as the government and Deep State scientists are at declaring the benefits of Big Pharma drugs and vaccines, not to mention their faux climate change narratives.
The reality today:
Over 66% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.
Over 70% have cut their spending considerably.
55% have limited spending capacity.
50% have shifted their shopping preferences.
Rather than focus on the crime crisis facing Americans, House Democrats continue their illegitimate January 6th committee’s sham hearings.
In the meantime, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Chicago, Illinois; Austin, Texas; Rochester, New York; St. Paul, Minnesota; Portland, Oregon; Tucson, Arizona; Toledo, Ohio; Baton Rouge, Louisiana; and Albuquerque, New Mexico, are breaking homicide records by leaps and bounds. (How many of these are Democrat controlled cities?)
As of this date, 259 police officers have been shot in 2022, including 50 fatally, according to the Fraternal Order of Police, an organization representing US law enforcement officers. Since Biden took office the number of officers shot increased 6%. Last year, 73 officers were intentionally killed in the line of duty, the most since the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
“Biden administration policies have been an unmitigated disaster,” Jackson County, Texas Sheriff Kelly Janica said this week. “It’s out of control.”
For decades, multiple law enforcement agencies have combated traffickers of people, weapons, drugs and money using stolen vehicles along highways 281, 77 and 59. But the border invasion is “unprecedented the amount of stolen vehicles we’re catching,” Janica said. Since December, his team has found over 100 stolen vehicles, “and that includes four to five that got away from us.”
“All of the stolen vehicles being used are coming out of Harris County (Houston),” he said. “Cartels are paying fugitives to drive them to the border to pick up illegal aliens and bring them back north to Houston.”
Last Thursday Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) said the Biden administration’s decision to “deplete the (Strategic Petroleum Reserve) SPR emboldens our enemies abroad and does little” to help Americans at the fuel pump.
“Manipulating energy reserves to bring gas prices down from historic highs as the midterm elections approach is not an accomplishment, it is a national security risk,” Daines said.
The maximum capacity the SPR has ever reached was in 2010 at just over 726 million barrels. In mid-October, the SPR was more than 40 percent lower, sitting at just over 405 million barrels, SPR hasn’t dipped below 405 million barrels since 1984.
The Pew Research Center reported that their latest poll indicated 79 percent of respondents said the economy is “very important,” more than any other topic including crime, foreign policy and immigration.
Benchmark U.S. oil on Friday hovered around $85 per barrel. Oil futures prices for 2024 are already below $70 a barrel, said Andy Lipow, president of Lipow Oil Associates LLC. “That’s not enough to encourage future investments,”
Meanwhile gas and oil producers in the U.S. struggle with Biden’s ongoing supply chain problems and the effects of inflation.
Currently heating American homes is over 46% higher than it was when President Trump left office and 40% more than last year. Lower inventories and heightened government controls and mandates mean it will be even higher as we face November through March.
Back home at our local Texas Hill Country breakfast cafe, we overheard some of the truckers and travelers laughing at the number of electric cars they’ve seen along Interstate Highway 10.
Many were abandoned, waiting for help or waiting in line behind others to charge their lithium batteries.
“As I passed one near Fort Stockton, the radio was playing Willie Nelson’s ‘On the Road Again,'” a friend coming back from a Colorado trip grinned. “I started singing along, ‘Stuck on the road again.’ That’s how obvious it was.”
“Now get this,” he observed. “The guy was standing outside in the wide open spaces by himself wearing a mask practically in the middle of nowhere. He had California license plates so I figured he was on his way to Austin!”
A two-megawatt windmill is made up of 260 tons of steel that required 300 tons of iron ore and 170 tons of coking coal, all mined, transported and produced by hydrocarbons.
It holds 700 gallons of oil and hydraulic fluid, and just as a car, these need to be replaced every 9 months.
People might fall for the idea that we can merrily run on sunshine and breezes alone, but with a few trillion dollars worth of mythical mega-batteries providing backup for a few minutes, it could spin until it falls apart over and over again and never generate as much energy as was invested in building it.
In fact installing the foundation of a single offshore turbine can consume 18,857 barrels of marine fuel during construction, according to calculations published by Forbes.
Offshore wind farms often have over 100 wind turbines, meaning that building them requires almost 2 million barrels of fuel just to power the ships involved in construction.
“You can’t even construct or operate offshore wind turbines without oil,” Chris Warren, a spokesman for the free-market Institute for Energy Research, explains. “For decades, we have been told that wind, solar, and other so-called ‘green’ sources are the future, and yet these sources remain expensive, intermittent, and unreliable despite government mandates and subsidies. Offshore wind in particular remains one of the most expensive sources of electricity that exists.”
Consider the life cycle of a wind turbine:
🔹giant diesel powered mining trucks and machines dig deep into the earth for iron ore
🔹fossil-fueled ships take the ore to a facility that will use fossil fuels to crush it and permeate it with petro-chemicals to extract the metal from the ore
🔹This metal will be taken in a diesel truck or locomotive to a smelter which runs exclusively on fossil fuels 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year for the 12 to 20 years they may last
🔹There are over 8,000 parts to a wind turbine which are delivered over global supply chains via petroleum-fueled ships, rail, air, and trucks to the assembly factory.
🔹There are 435 million miles of asphalted roads in the world. Wind turbines and solar panels and their raw materials depend on these roads, and the energy to build and maintain them. Roads are how the diesel cement trucks arrive at the wind turbine site to pour many tons of concrete while other diesel trucks carry segments of the wind turbine to the site and workers arrive in gas or diesel vehicles to assemble it.
Here are more considerations not usually revealed in corporate media, Big Energy, Big Environment and the Biden White House:
🔹Windmills require petroleum every single step of their life cycle. If they can’t replicate themselves using wind turbine generated electricity, they are not sustainable
🔹Not enough dispatchable power, such as natural gas or hydropower, to balance wind intermittency and unreliability.
🔹Wind blows seasonally, so for much of the year there isn’t adequate wind.
🔹The role of an electrical grid is to keep the supply of power steady and predictable. Wind does the opposite, at some point of penetration, it may become impossible to keep the grid from crashing.
🔹Windmills can’t be built without huge subsidies and tax breaks.
🔹The best wind is too high to capture.
🔹Wide-scale US wind power could cause significant global warming. A Harvard study raises questions about just how much wind should be part of a climate solution.
🔹Wind is only strong enough to justify windmills in a few limited regions.
🔹Wind blows the strongest when customer demand is generally the weakest.
🔹Wind Power surges harm industrial customers.
🔹Windmills take up too much space
🔹Wind turbines break down too often.
🔹Large-scale wind energy slows down winds and reduces turbine efficiencies.
🔹Offshore windmills battered by waves, wind, ice, corrosion, are a true hazard to ships and ecosystems.
🔹Offshore wind farms are susceptible to hurricane destruction.
🔹The costs of lightning damage are extremely high.
🔹Turbines increase the cost of farming.
🔹Wind turbines are already going out of business and fewer are being built in Europe
🔹Germany has been spending more for much longer than other nations, and Energiewiende is a huge failure
🔹The quality of wind resources is location specific, with the best locations often found far from the load center where the transmission grid already exists.
🔹Dead bugs, birds and salt reduce wind power generation by 20 to 30%.
🔹Wind turbines are so much more expensive to decommission than construct, they are so often not even recycled. Here is one of hundreds of graveyards:
🔹Decommissioning wind turbines costs as much as $500,000 per wind turbine
🔹Transmission lines need to be much longer than for traditional plants, and are likely to spark firestorms causing billions in damage.
🔹Wind turbines threaten biodiversity in hundreds of protected, key biodiverse and wilderness areas
🔹Operations and Maintenance (O&M) costs are extremely high.
🔹Increasingly high insurance costs from hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, defective equipment, untrained personnel and more.
🔹Blades need to be de-iced with helicopters in the winter.
🔹When oil prices rise, the cost of building and maintaining wind turbines rises.
Families of electrical power plant facilities in Georgia are concerned for job security due to the Biden Democrats’ Build Back Better Green Initiatives.
Another concerning factor is, out of the 2,500 companies in the U.S. with Chinese firms having controlling interests, many are energy businesses. These include Cirrus Wind Energy, First International Oil, EIG Global Energy Partners, Chesapeake Energy Corp, Boston Power, Global Solar Energy, TransPacific Energy and others.
Last week, Georgia regulators approved the retirement and decertification of all Georgia Power-controlled coal units by 2028, with one exception: the 3,300 MW Plant Bowen.
“One of my sons works at Plant Bowen which is a Georgia Power plant,” said one mother who asked not to be identified due to the corrupt politics of Gov. Brian Kemp and the state in general. “When he began working there six years ago, the coal heap was a half a mile long and 100 feet high rising like a mountain in the landscape.”
“There was enough coal to provide power to all of the southeast for 4 to 5 years,” she continued. “Today, they have enough for one month. The coal cars used to run through twice a day. Now, my son reports getting maybe one train a week.”
“The plant is currently running only one unit at half capacity, because they simply don’t have the coal to fire up the other units,” she noted.
“Now here’s something that you may not know,” the mother revealed. “The ash that is produced from the burning of coal is used in many everyday products. Things like concrete, fertilizer, asphalt, Portland cement, bricks, gypsum panel products (dry wall), and on and on.”
“The fly ash is collected and sold to manufacturers who produce the building products mentioned above. So, you see, when there’s no coal to burn, there’s no ash. And when there’s no ash, there will be shortages (and higher prices) for items that are vital to our economy,” she wrote.
“Look at that list again and ponder this: U.S. coal shipments to China saw a 30-fold increase in the second quarter of 2021 placing it just behind India as the largest importer of American coal.”
“Something unusual is going on. My son has worked at the power plant long enough to understand that things.”
Regulators are expected to reevaluate Bowen Plant as part of the utility’s next regularly scheduled integrated resource plan (IRP) in 2025. The last minute deal to keep Plant Bowen open was initiated by Commissioner Fitz Johnson.
In December, the commission is scheduled to vote on Georgia Power’s rate plan. If approved, a residential customer who uses 1,000 kWh of electricity each month would see their bill increase from $128 now to $144.29 at the end of three years.
Regulators also tentatively approved what is expected to be another “Green Initiative,” Georgia Power’s largest single battery energy storage system project, the McGrau Ford Battery facility. As proposed, the resource would include a 265 MW lithium-ion facility interconnected at the McGrau Ford substation. Regulators also approved an additional 500 MW of battery storage.
Georgia Power’s coal assets include Plant Bowen, Plant Scherer, and Plant Wansley. Plant Bowen began commercial operation in 1975 in Bartow County, Georgia. The four coal-fired units are capable of producing 3,376 MW of electricity.
Forget the propaganda churned out by the corporate news media, here are the facts about the SOB (Soros-Obama-Biden) oil and gas policies designed to socialize America towards control via “The Great Reset, and New World Order (NOW).
🔹The day before Barack Obama was inaugurated regular gasoline prices across the USA were $1.87 per gallon.
🔹When Obama left the White House the cost of gas was $4.22 per gallon.
🔹Immediately upon taking office he rescinded leases for oil shale production and expedited the failed Solendro energy deal while stalling other new energy production.
🔹He urged the Senate to pass a new higher energy tax.
🔹To George Soros’ delight, Obama opposed bills to unlock American energy resources, stopped drilling and leasing through new bureaucratic hurdles, and rejected the Keystone pipeline.
2018– The United States became the world’s top crude oil producer under President Donald J. Trump and maintained the lead position through 2020.
April 7, 2020- Americans, with the leadership of President Trump in the White House, were enjoying low gasoline prices at the pump. $1.79 per gallon

Recently, Senators Steve Daines, R-Mont.; Jim Risch, R-Idaho; Roger Marshall, R-Kansas; Mike Crapo, R-Idaho; Jerry Moran, R-Kansas; Bill Cassidy, R-La.; John Barrasso, R-Wyo.; Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo.; Kevin Cramer, R-N.D.; John Hoeven, R-N.D.; and Tom Cotton, R-Ark. wrote a letter to Biden’s Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm demanding she must comply with the law requiring her agency to disclose the number of jobs lost when Biden canceled the Keystone XL pipeline.
“At the time of its closure, the Keystone XL pipeline project was already under construction and employed more than 1,500 workers,” the letter read. “By the end of 2021, the Keystone XL pipeline was projected to provide approximately 11,000 jobs.”
“The closure erased thousands of real, high-paying jobs and approximately $800 million in wages,” it continued. “Significant prospective spending for rural communities and small businesses, as well as tax revenue for local schools and public safety, disappeared with the stroke of a pen.”
“The Keystone XL pipeline was a critical investment for U.S. energy security and job creation,” Sen. Risch said in a statement. “Why the administration made the decision to prioritize Russia’s workforce and energy sector over the United States is beyond me. The Department of Energy must report back on this significant domestic loss.”

Before Joe Biden was weazled into the White House, America produced more oil and gas and held more coal reserves than any nation, surpassing Saudi Arabia in 2013 as the largest producer of petroleum hydrocarbons in the world.
Because of increases in domestic energy production – driven by market forces, pro-energy policies, and American ingenuity, under President Donald J. Trump, America became a net energy exporter, meaning we exported more than we imported.
If America would have continued to lead by fostering free markets and energy entrepreneurship, the US and her allies would have benefited from a wealth of energy and ideas, thereby increasing our economic and geopolitical security.
Within days of the Biden takeover, it became obvious the Democrats are on course for a socialism Globalist stance. We can preview where this is taking us by looking at Europe.
AVERAGE ELECTRICITY RATES IN GERMANY HAVE RISEN BY MORE THAN 60% IN THE LAST 12 YEARS
🔹According to Eurostat, retail electricity rates for an average German household rose from 20.6 to 36.5 Euro cents per kWh from 2007 to 2019.
This increase is primarily due to taxes and levies to support renewable energy generation and integration, including a 7.2 Euro cent per kWh levy for direct payments to renewable energy producers.
Average retail prices for U.S. households were 12.5 cents per kWh in 2019.
🔹Direct taxes and subsidies for renewable energy cost and estimated €24 billion in 2017, and IHS estimated that net export losses due to high electricity prices were €52 billion from 2008 to 2013.
🔹Despite hundreds of billions of Euros in taxes and subsidies over the past two decades, CO2 emissions in Germany only fell by 9% from 2003 to 2018 because Germany is forcing out nuclear generation, the only practical means to achieve zero carbon electricity generation, and relying on coal to support intermittent renewable resources.
The recent experience of Germany and many other countries, including many U.S. states, has shown that mandates, taxes, and subsidies that support renewable energy and increase power prices are regressive, distort markets, and do not move the needle on global climate change.
🔹By most accounts, the U.S. contains enough reserves of fossil fuels to sustain current production levels for many decades to come.
🔹The latest estimates show that the U.S. has at least 310 billion barrels of recoverable oil, enough for almost 80 years of production at current rates.
North America has over 2 quadrillion cubic feet of recoverable natural gas, enough for more than 60 years at current production rates.
The lower 48 states have enough recoverable coal to meet current demand for 350 years. And more resources are being found every day as the energy markets go to work.
Energy demand and production will always have their booms and busts due to economic cycles and price fluctuations, but the fact that more than 80% of the energy we consume comes from petroleum, natural gas, and coal will not change in the foreseeable future.
Thanks to the shale revolution, domestic production is rising to satisfy that continued demand. The Energy Information Administration correctly projected the U.S. would produce oil and natural gas at record levels in 2018 and 2019 and became a net energy exporter in 2020.
Before Biden, we were making great progress in technological advances and the efforts of energy entrepreneurs, we were unlocking resources once thought unattainable and achieve sustainable fossil fuel production.

In March 2019 near the South Pole, a Russian ship carrying scientists and tourists traveled to the bottom of the Earth so pro-climate change alarmists could gather more ammunition to document global warming and shrinking ice caps. With hundreds of thousands of dollars pumped into the expedition, the return on investment backfired. The ship became stuck on ice that was thicker than at any time since records started being kept in 1978.
A year later, also in December, a Russian military vessel, Sparta-III became lodged in ice due to record breaking cold with temperatures of -58F and below reported.
Then, in November 2021, 18 Russian cargo ships were trapped, some for weeks, by another freeze.
It seems like these Big Climate scientists and propagandists would have learned a thing or two about previous attempts. Like the one in December 2013, when the Russian vessel M.V. Akademik Shokalskiy, with 74 people on board for a polar expedition, was stuck in ice near Antarctica for days.
Similar to what the world is currently experiencing with the false narratives of government and Big Pharma related to disease, viruses and vaccines, the Big Climate industry has pulling the same types of scams for decades.
Unfortunately for the John Kerrys and Al Gores of the world, the real truth is that Arctic ice “recededing” wasn’t accurate. In fact, between 2012 and 2013, the ice actually grew by 29 percent into an unbroken patch more than half the size of Europe and within 5 percent of what it was 33 years ago, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center.
Over time, millions of Americans have wised up to Big Pharma and Big Climate. They have especially learned and rightfully concluded that “climate change is a hoax.”
The economic consequences of Biden’s global warming policies can already be seen in electricity and fuel prices, which are currently the highest in U.S. history. Remarkably, Biden’s global warming policies are increasing electricity prices even while new natural gas discoveries, revolutionary advances in natural gas production technologies, and a dramatic resultant decline in natural gas prices would otherwise spur a dramatic decline in electricity prices.
The Biden Administration habitually recite Big Climate global warming alarmists who argue that changes in the biosphere make it richer, lusher, and more conducive to life are changes to be feared and opposed.
If barren ecosystems and deserts constitute their ideal planet, then the alarmist fears of more plant life make sense. On the contrary, global warming realists understand a climate more conducive to richer, more abundant plant life is beneficial rather than harmful.
We learned and agree that severe storms, floods and agricultural losses do indeed cost a great deal of money, but such extreme weather events – and their resulting costs – are dramatically declining as the Earth modestly warms.
Documented by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, severe storms are becoming less frequent and severe as the Earth modestly warms.
This is especially evident regarding hurricane and tornado activity, which are both at historic lows. Similarly, scientific measurements and peer-reviewed studies report no increase in flooding events regarding natural-flowing rivers and streams. Any increase in flooding activity is due to human alterations of river and stream flow rather than precipitation changes.
🔹The fact is NASA satellite instruments have documented a great greening of the Earth, with foliage gains most prevalent in previously arid, semi-desert regions.
🔹Although forests and plant life are expanding globally, this is particularly true in the western United States.
🔹Regarding food and water supplies, global crop production has soared as the Earth gradually warms. Atmospheric carbon dioxide is essential to plant life, and adding more of it to the atmosphere enhances plant growth and crop production. Longer growing seasons and fewer frost events also benefit plant growth and crop production.
🔹Big Pharma and their puppet politicians and universities make a big deal about icebergs breaking off the Antarctic ice sheet. They deliberately ignore the overall growth of the Antarctic ice sheet.
Icebergs break off the Antarctic ice sheet every year, with or without global warming, particularly in the Antarctic summer. However, a particular iceberg – no matter how large – breaking off the Antarctic ice sheet does not necessarily result in “Shrinking Glaciers.” To the contrary, the Antarctic Ice Sheet has been growing at a steady and substantial pace ever since NASA satellites first began measuring the Antarctic ice sheet in 1979.
🔹Big Climate’s assertion that polar ice sheets are melting is simply false. Although they often point to a modest recent shrinkage in the Arctic ice sheet, that decline has been completely offset by ice sheet expansion in the Antarctic. Cumulatively, polar ice sheets have not declined at all since NASA satellite instruments began precisely measuring them 39 years ago.
🔹Objective data show there has been a gradual increase in global precipitation and soil moisture as our planet warms. Warmer temperatures evaporate more water from the oceans, which in turn stimulates more frequent precipitation over continental land masses. The result of this enhanced precipitation is an improvement in soil moisture at almost all sites in the Global Soil Moisture Data Bank.
🔹The Biden and leftist’s preferred electricity source – wind power – kills nearly 1 million bats every year (not to mention the more than 500,000 birds killed annually) in the United States alone. This huge death toll occurs even though wind power produces just 3% of U.S. electricity.
🔹Lyme Disease is far more common in northern, cooler regions of the United States than in southern, warmer regions. Asserting, without any supporting data or evidence, that a disease that prospers in cool climates will become more prevalent as a result of global warming defies objective data and common sense.
While it might sound cynical, global warming has been used politically in order for governments to gain control over the private sector…As a former government employee, I can attest to the continuing angst civil servants have over remaining relevant to the taxpayers who pay their salaries, so there is a continuing desire to increase the role of government in our daily lives.
In 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was given a legitimate mandate to clean up our air and water. I remember the pollution crises we were experiencing in the 1960s. But as those problems were solved, the EPA found itself in the precarious position of possibly outliving its usefulness.
So, the EPA embarked on a mission of ever-increasing levels of regulation. Any manmade substance that had any evidence of being harmful in large concentrations was a target for regulation.
I was at a Carolina Air Pollution Control Association (CAPCA) meeting years ago where an EPA employee stated to the group that “we must never stop making the environment cleaner” (or something to that effect).
There were gasps from the audience.
You see, there is a legitimate role of the EPA to regulate clearly dangerous or harmful levels of manmade pollutants.
But it is not physically possible to make our environment 100% clean.
As we try to make the environment ever cleaner, the cost goes up dramatically.
As any economist will tell you, money you spend on one thing is not available for other things, like health care. So, the risk of over-regulating pollution is that you end up killing more people than you save, because if there is one thing we know kills millions of people every year, it is poverty.
Global warming has become a reason for government to institute policies, whether they be a carbon tax or whatever, using a regulatory mechanism which the public would never agree to if they knew (1) how much it will cost them in reduced prosperity, and (2) how little effect it will have on the climate system.
So, the policy prescription does indeed become a hoax, because the public is being misled into believing that their actions are going to somehow make the climate “better”.
Even using the IPCC’s (and thus the EPA’s) numbers, there is nothing we can do energy policy-wise that will have any measurable effect on global temperatures.
In this regard, politicians using global warming as a policy tool to solve a perceived problem is indeed a hoax. The energy needs of humanity are so large that Bjorn Lomborg has estimated that in the coming decades it is unlikely that more than about 20% of those needs can be met with renewable energy sources.
Whether you like it or not, we are stuck with fossil fuels as our primary energy source for decades to come. Deal with it. And to the extent that we eventually need more renewables, let the private sector figure it out. Energy companies are in the business of providing energy, and they really do not care where that energy comes from.
Dr. Roy Spencer, former NASA climatologist
And here are words of knowledge from another former NASA scientist:
“The term ‘climate change’ is meaningless. The Earth’s climate has been changing since time immemorial, that is since the Earth was formed 1,000 million years ago. The theory of ‘man-made climate change’ is an unsubstantiated hypothesis [about] our climate [which says it] has been adversely affected by the burning of fossil fuels in the last 100 years, causing the average temperature on the earth’s surface to increase very slightly but with disastrous environmental consequences.
The theory is that the CO2 emitted by burning fossil fuel is the ‘greenhouse gas’ causes ‘global warming’ — in fact, water is a much more powerful greenhouse gas and there is 20 time more of it in our atmosphere (around one per cent of the atmosphere) whereas CO2 is only 0.04 per cent.
There is no reproducible scientific evidence CO2 has significantly increased in the last 100 years. Anecdotal evidence doesn’t mean anything in science, it’s not significant…”

Film and television star John Goodman was hovering over 400 pounds when he decided to improve his health. Now, over 100 pounds lighter, he says his life has greatly improved.
One of the keys to the success of Goodman’s weight loss diet is based on the latest science. By enhancing our ability to identify and kill off inflammation we reduce inflammation throughout the entire body.
Inflammation is believed to contribute to many health issues including obesity, heart disease, arthritis, and allergies. By boosting your bodies anti-inflammatory defenses you can start to lose weight without really reducing the amount of calories you eat.
The anti-inflammatory diet that Goodman uses incorporates olive leaf extract, turmeric, resveratrol and phytosterols which are plant derived ingredients that have all been shown to boost the immune system and therefore lower inflammation.
The diet encourages the use of olive oil and olive leaf extract. By removing unhealthy fats from your diet, along with adding in essential fat-burning nutrients and keeping the calorie count low you can begin to lose weight while staying full.
Goodman’s diet regimen includes consumption of fish oil, skate liver oil and a variety of other healthy oils and vegetables for ultimate benefits.
He now limits the amount of fat consumed and increases the amount of fiber. This causes a significant shift in the makeup of the body and a decrease in insulin sensitivity. Insulin sensitivity is what determines how long the fat stays in the system. This means that people who are able to lose weight via a Mediterranean type diet with an anti-inflammatory protocol have a higher chance of being able to keep the weight off.
It has recently been discovered that a high fat diet, particularly one high in saturated fat, can increase the risk of the development of many serious health conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
🔹The evidence also shows that a high fat diet, particularly one high in fat and sugar, decreases the rate at which the body adapts to infections and increases the risk of cancers of the intestinal tract, colon and prostate.
🔹It also increases the risk of developing obesity, tooth decay, gallstones and cirrhosis.
🔹When it comes to the bacteria that we are exposed to, a high fat diet decreases the abundance of protective bacteria needed to fight off infection and lower the risk of developing illnesses such as allergies, asthma and depression.
The first thing Goodman did was rid his three unappealing vices: smoking, alcohol, and fried foods.
His Mediterranean Diet allowed him to have these things:
Consumption of vegetables, fruits, whole grains and healthy fats on a daily basis.
Intake of beans, fish and eggs on a weekly basis.
Red meat in a very limited portion.
While following this healthy diet, John Goodman has completely eliminated added sugar, refined grains, trans fats, refined oils, processed meat, and highly processed foods.
Instead of starving himself and counting calories, he instead works out for the same amount of time he eats.
His fitness trainer, Mackie Shilstone, states that if you are going to lose weight on a diet plan that you need to eat your food and get enough protein to help your body burn fat. This is where the diet really starts.
GasBuddy recently forecasted the national average for gasoline at the pump will rise to $3.41 a gallon in 2022, up from $3.02 a gallon in 2021.
Energy Information Administration (EIA) last week predicted gas will be up to $3.79 in 2022.
White House Resident Joe Biden, on Day One decided to rescind the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Under President Donald J. Trump’s first term, gas prices were close to $1.20 less than Biden’s first year in office. For the first time in history, Americans were not energy dependent on foreign oil.
Today, US pipeline capacity is sitting around 50%.
“We could see a national average that flirts with, or in a worst-case scenario, potentially exceeds $4 a gallon,” said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy, the leading app that tracks fuel prices, demand and outages.
Baby Boomers have not forgotten the amplified inflationary pressures American families grappled with during the 1970s and 1980s. With Biden in control, all analysts (except for those in government and mainstream media) indicate we will soon be living with the biggest price spikes in nearly 40 years.
Many of us experienced first-hand the rationing, restrictions and long lines of President Jimmy Carter’s decisions. It was devastating and did not set too well with most Americans when Carter, discussing high home-heating oil prices, encouraged us to wear a sweater and turn down the thermostat.
Singer Jerry Reed’s new recording was entitled “The Crude Oil Blues.” Other songs hitting the airwaves and record stores were “Get That Gasoline Blues,” by NRBQ and “Where Have All the Gas Pumps Gone To?”
Just as it was with Carter, citizens today see in Biden as someone not on their side of the fight.
Inflation, Gas Prices, Bigger Issues Than Climate Change and COVID
Democrats and their presidential leader, Joe Biden, continue to sink in popularity at a rate almost as devastating as mainstream media numbers.
The latest figures on the pandemic show that only 32% of American voters now believe the worst is behind us. That’s down eight points from a week ago and 14 points from a month ago.
A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 40% now believe the worst is yet to come. These numbers reflect a significant increase in pessimism. It’s the first time in two months that more voters expressed the negative view rather than the positive option.
Perceptions about the pandemic have varied over time. When the lockdowns first began, a majority of voters believed the pandemic would end by Memorial Day 2020.
In 2021, optimism rose when the vaccines became available. By May, 56% believed the worst was behind us. However, confidence fell over the summer due to the Biden Administration, CDC, FDA and Anthony Fauci blunders. By July, 28% still believed the worst had already come and gone. Confidence began to grow again in early October before falling again in November.
Gasoline Prices vs. Climate Change
Forty percent (40%) of voters now believe that rising gas prices are a bigger problem than climate change. This is a growing concern for politicians who support expensive liberal Green Deal intiatives. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that only 29% take the opposite view and see climate change as the bigger problem. Twenty-eight percent (28%) are equally concerned about both and 3% are not sure.
🔹Most Republicans (60%) see rising gas prices as the bigger problem.
🔹A plurality of Democrats (44%) are more worried about climate change.
🔹Among independent voters, 37% cite rising gas prices as their top concern, while 27% say climate change.
Inflation Bigger Than COVID
The survey also found that 33% believe inflation is a bigger problem than COVID, while only 26% say COVID is a bigger problem. A plurality of voters (36%) see them as equally important.
A large majority, sixty-five percent (65%) of voters are more interested in economic issues than cultural issues. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that 19% take the opposite view and 16% are not sure.
Most voters (55%) also believe that Republican politicians and activists are more interested in economic issues. Only 21% believe the GOP has more interest in cultural issues.
However, when it comes to Democratic politicians and activists, voters are almost evenly divided. Thirty-eight percent (38%) believe those in Biden’s party are more interested in cultural issues. Thirty-seven percent (37%) think economic issues are the top priority for Democrats.
Independent voters, by a 38% to 29% margin, tend to see Democrats as more interested in cultural issues. These unaffiliated voters see Republicans as primarily interested in economic issues by a 47% to 17% margin.
