“Climate Friendly” EVs are a HUGE Fraud!

We hear repeatedly how Electric Vehicles (EVs) are the answer to their (democrats and confused environmentally concerned others) Climate Change and evil fossil fuel prayers.

“If we could all switch over to EVs, all of our Climate change concerns, and the whining about the cost of gas, would disappear!” This is what we hear repeatedly from the dolts in the Biden administration.

Well, here is a reality check for battery-powered vehicle owners, their proponents, and climate propagandists:

This massive and ungodly machine is required to move 500 tons of earth/ore, in search of lithium, which will be refined into ONE lithium car battery.

That’s ONE lithium car battery.

ONE.

It burns 900-1,000 gallons of fuel in a 12 hour shift.

Lithium is refined from Ore using sulfuric acid. Which is handled in an environmentally responsible way I’m sure.

But the mining of lithium is only the beginning.  

A battery in the average electric car is made from:

25 pounds of lithium,

60 pounds of nickel,

44 pounds of manganese,

30 pounds of cobalt,

200 pounds of copper, and

400 pounds of aluminum, steel, plastic etc.

That averages to 750-1,000 pounds of minerals, mined and processed (in many cases by child/slave labor) into a battery that merely stores electricity…, electricity generated by oil, gas, coal, and nuclear, with a small fraction drawn from water, wind and/or solar (typically less than 10%).

Are you beginning to see reality behind the EV hoax?

I would hope so.

In addition…, The Earth is already piling up spent batteries…, which are being disposed of in the most environmentally responsible ways I’m sure.

In TRUTH, there’s nothing “green” about the “Green New Deal” …, just a whole lot of power grabbing, “green” pockets being lined, and our environment being destroyed by greed and environmental disingenuousness.

But let’s hear from some other sources regarding these electric vehicles, which are going to save us all from climate change, and our dependence on evil fossil fuels.

“The environmental downside of Electric Vehicles,” according to Michael Heberling for “The Maine Wire.” The Maine Wire is a project of the Maine Policy Institute, Maine’s preeminent free-market policy think tank.

“According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), an electric vehicle requires SIX TIMES the mineral inputs of a comparable internal combustion engine vehicle (ICE). EV batteries are very heavy and are made with some exotic, expensive, toxic, and flammable materials.”

“The primary metals in EV batteries include Nickel, Lithium, Cobalt, Copper and Rare Earth metals (Neodymium and Dysprosium). The mining of these materials, their use in manufacturing and their ultimate disposal all present significant environmental challenges.

That’s “significant environmental challenges,” regarding EV batteries.  

Ninety percent (90%) of the ICE lead-acid batteries are recycled, while only five percent (5%) of the EV lithium-ion batteries are.”

“Oil has been so demonized that we tend to overlook some of its positive traits as a power source relative to the battery power of EVs.”

“Positive traits” of oil?! You better shut your dirty fossil fuel mouth!

“The power for an internal combustion engine, oil, is a homogeneous commodity found abundantly around the world (especially in our own backyard).”

“In spite of the environmental hysteria about oil drilling, the surface area disturbed is relatively small [in comparison to] many of the materials prominent in the clean energy revolution, which are obtained through open-pit horizontal mining, which is extremely damaging to wide areas of the environment.”

You don’t say?

Let’s look a little closer at some of these materials which are prominent in the “clean energy revolution.”

“Nickel, a major component of the EV batteries, is found just below the topsoil in the Rainforests of Indonesia and the Philippines. As a result, the nickel is extracted using horizontal surface mining that results in extensive environmental degradation: deforestation and removal of the top layer of soil. It should be noted that Rainforests play a major role in “fighting climate change” by removing Carbon Dioxide from the atmosphere through photosynthesis. The environmental battle cry “Save the Rainforests!” needs to be replaced with a new slogan reminiscent of this one from the Vietnam War: “It was necessary to destroy the village in order to save it.” Here is the new environmental bumper sticker for all Clean Energy EVs: “It was necessary to destroy the rainforest in order to save the planet”.

“Lithium. Over half of the world’s Lithium reserves are found in three South American countries that border the Andes Mountains: Chile, Argentina and Bolivia. These countries are collectively known as the ‘Lithium Triangle.’”

“According to the Institute for Energy Research, Lithium is found in salt flats in very arid areas which complicates the mining process. A multi-mineral mixture containing Lithium is removed from beneath the salt flats. The Lithium extraction from the mixture is a lengthy, 12 to 18 months, evaporation process that is water intensive. Each ton of lithium produced requires 500,000 gallons of water. Besides the discarded mineral salt mixture, the process can result in water and soil contamination plus a depleted water table.”

“It should be noted that the United States is 4th in total Lithium reserves behind the Lithium Triangle countries. However, NIMBY (Not In My Backyard) environmental protests to “Save the Planet” have stymied efforts to develop the US Lithium market. It seems that our provincial “Earth-Firsters” want to maintain a pristine US, but have no problem turning a blind eye to the environmental exploitation of third world countries.”

At least they’re consistent!

Regarding cobalt, The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) produces 70% of the world’s Cobalt. While there is no shortage of environmental issues with its Cobalt mining, the overriding problem here is human rights: dangerous working conditions and the use of child labor.”

Hmm…, that never seemed to be an issue as far as China and other Asian countries were concerned. I’m guessing the EV hucksters are looking the other way with this as well.   

“Cobalt is a toxic metal. Prolonged exposure and inhalation of Cobalt dust can lead to health issues of the eyes, skin, and lungs. Because Cobalt can be easily extracted from the ground by hand, small scale, bare-bones “artisanal” mines are common.”

“Artisanal mining” refers to informal mining activities carried out using low technology, with minimal machinery.” Basically, slave mining.

“The simplicity of the operation discourages/negates the need for ‘occupational safety measures’ and encourages the use of child labor.”

“Occupational safety measures” is a term that is completely foreign to these slave drivers, I assure you.

“According to the Wilson Center, ‘small-scale mining in the DRC involves people of all ages, including children, obligated to work under harsh conditions. Of the 255,000 Congolese mining for cobalt, 40,000 are children, some as young as six years.’”

Well, isn’t that lovely.

“Amnesty International has also made similar comments. ‘Thousands of children mine cobalt in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Despite the potentially fatal health effects of prolonged exposure to cobalt, adult and child miners work without even the most basic protective equipment.’”

Oh…, that’s odd!

These slave drivers should be reported to John Kerry and Greta Thunberg immediately!

“Chile is the leading producer of the world’s Copper. The vast majority of Chile’s Copper comes from open-pit/strip mines. This type of mining negatively affects vegetation, topsoil, wildlife habitats, and groundwater. The next three largest producers of copper are Peru, China, and the infamous Democratic Republic of the Congo. Number five happens to be the United States.

Well, there you have it.

The EV fairytale appears to be just the latest democrat hoax to be perpetrated on America, and the rest of the world as well.

And why does this gigantic hoax continue to go unchallenged and unreported?

Like I said, it’s just the latest in a long line of democrat and climate crazy activist propaganda, which includes propaganda by omission.

Democrats are Satanic Puppets…, Change My Mind!

Okay…, there, I said it.

Yes, my friends…, let’s just cut to the chase and identify democrats for what they are…, willing pawns of the devil.

This political battle has evolved quite rapidly in the last few years, or so, and there is no longer any question about it.

I’m sorry for all of you supposed moderate democrats out there that think you’re exempt from this, because you’re not. There is really nothing moderate about your support of all of these evil extremists and their anti-God, anti-Life, anti-America and America Last policies.

And sadly, many of these people claim to be Catholic!

Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi, for example. 

Before you can do anything else with your life, all of you “moderate” democrats have got to wake up.

We are in the midst of a full-blown war of Good vs. Evil, and there is no middle ground.  

The latest example of satanic puppetry of the democrats is their attack on the Catholic’s Rosary.

Catholics, of course, already understand the implications and evilness of this.

If you’re not Catholic, and the whole Rosary thing is a little unclear in your mind…, let’s first clear up what “The Rosary” is.

“The Rosary” is a structured prayer to Mary, the Mother of Jesus, commemorating Jesus and events of his life.

“A Rosary” is a string of beads, with a Cross, used for keeping count while praying “The Rosary.”

The word “Rosary” comes from Latin and means a garland of roses, the rose being one of the flowers used to symbolize the Virgin Mary.

The Rosary is a devotion in honor of the Virgin Mary. It consists of a set number of specific prayers. First are the introductory prayers: one Apostles’ Creed, one Our Father  or the Lord’s Prayer), three Hail Mary’s, and one Glory Be.

The prayer begins, “Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.” This is nothing other than the greeting the angel Gabriel gave Mary in Luke 1:28.

The next part reads, “Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.” This was exactly what Mary’s cousin Elizabeth said to her in Luke 1:42. The only thing that has been added to these two verses are the names “Jesus” and “Mary,” to make clear who is being referred to. So the first part of the “Hail Mary” is entirely biblical.

The second part of the Hail Mary is not taken straight from Scripture, but it is entirely biblical in the thoughts it expresses. It reads, “Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.”

So those are the prayers of The Rosary. Between the introductory prayers and the concluding prayer is the meat of The Rosary: the “decades.” Each decade, there are fifteen in a full rosary (which takes about forty-five minutes to say), is composed of ten “Hail Marys.” Each decade is bracketed between an Our Father and a Glory Be, so each decade actually has twelve prayers.

Each decade is devoted to a mystery regarding the life of Jesus or his Mother. Here the word “mystery” refers to a truth of the faith, not to something incomprehensible. The fifteen mysteries are divided into three groups of five: the Joyful, the Sorrowful, and the Glorious. Let’s look at the mysteries.

The Joyful Mysteries are these: the Annunciation (Luke 1:26-38), the Visitation (Luke 1:40-56), the Nativity (Luke 2:6-20), the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple (Luke 2:21-39), and the Finding of the Child Jesus in the Temple (Luke 2:41-51).

Then come the Sorrowful Mysteries: the Agony in the Garden (Matt. 26:36-46), the Scourging (Matt. 27:26), the Crowning with Thorns (Matt. 27:29), the Carrying of the Cross (John 19:17), and the Crucifixion (Luke 23:33-46).

The final Mysteries are the Glorious: the Resurrection (Luke 24:1-12), the Ascension (Luke 24:50-51), the Descent of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:1-4), the Assumption of Mary into Heaven (Rev. 12), and Her Coronation (cf. Rev. 12:1).

Hopefully that helps to bring some understanding to The Rosary, if you had any questions about it.

Now, let’s take a look at what all of the democrat fuss is about, regarding “The Rosary,” and why I was inspired to reply to the democrats’ evil commentary and accusations. 

According to The National Review, and Dan McLaughlin, Atlantic Magazine claims “Rosaries Are Worse Than Fire Bombings”

Oh. Really? That sounds like it’s coming straight from the Devil’s mouth. The Devil would think that “Rosaries Are Worse Than Fire Bombings,” by far. No contest.

“When “Jane’s Revenge,” a radical pro-abortion group,  takes public credit for firebombing crisis-pregnancy centers, this is how Atlantic writers react, quoting a comparison to ‘moral panic’ over Antifa during the 2020 riots that cost $2 billion in damages and killed two dozen people:”

“Right-wing media outlets have provided ample coverage of this new threat, and anti-abortion politicians have demanded government action to address it.”

And, why wouldn’t they?

“But the group’s practical significance remains in question. Just how meaningful is Jane’s Revenge?”

And who is behind Jane’s Revenge, and why do we not know this. Calling the FBI…, hello FBI…, are you out there?

Just saying.

Anyway…, The Atlantic continues, “Pro-abortion-rights activists have engaged in vandalism in recent weeks, and the blog posts associated with Jane’s Revenge are actively encouraging the behavior. But that does not imply the existence of a complex, coordinated campaign of violence.”

Oh. No…,, not at all.

“In addition to downplaying Jane’s Revenge and its campaign of terror, The Atlantic fails to contextualize it by omitting the activities of ‘Ruth Sent Us,’ the group that published the home addresses of Supreme Court justices to direct protesters to their homes, as well as the assassination attempt on Justice Brett Kavanaugh by a pro-abortion fanatic.”

“Contrast how Panneton frames The Rosary. First, the Atlantic’s subtitle hilariously refers to it as a ‘sacrament,’ an error that can only be explained by having had zero Catholics review the article before publication. Even an ex-Catholic who made it through the third grade would have caught that one. There are seven sacraments, and The Rosary is not one of them:”

“Just as the AR-15 rifle has become a sacred object for Christian nationalists in general, the rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or ‘rad trad’) Catholics.”

Only in the minds of democrats being manipulated by Satan.   

“On this extremist fringe, Rosary beads have been woven into a conspiratorial politics and absolutist gun culture. These armed radical traditionalists have taken up a spiritual notion that The Rosary can be a weapon in the fight against evil and turned it into something dangerously literal.”

The Rosary is absolutely “a weapon in the fight against evil.” The Devil hates The Rosary.

According to CNA, The Catholic News Agency, and Zelda Caldwell, ‘“The Atlantic’ publishes article on The Rosary as symbol of far-right, violent extremism.”

“Another article published (recently) in The Atlantic magazine suggests The Rosary has become a symbol of violent, right-wing extremism in the United States.”

“The article set off a frenzy of reactions among Catholics, ranging from amusement to grave concern over what some see as anti-Catholic sentiment.” 

“The magazine later changed the article’s headline from ‘How the Rosary Became an Extremist Symbol,’ by Daniel Panneton,  to ‘How Extremist Gun Culture is Trying to Co-Opt the Rosary.’ Among other edits to the text, an image of bullet holes forming the shape of rosary was replaced with a picture of a rosary.”

“These editorial changes, nonetheless, left the article’s thesis that there is a connection between The Rosary and extremism intact. The author’s contention was based, in part, on his observations about the use of the rosary on social media and rosaries sold online.”

“The Rosary has acquired a militaristic meaning for radical-traditional (or ‘rad trad’) Catholics,” writes Daniel Panneton of the sacramental use in prayer by Catholics for centuries.”

‘“Militia culture, a fetishism of Western civilization, and masculinist anxieties have become mainstays of the far right in the U.S., and ‘rad-trad’ Catholics have now taken up residence in this company,’ writes Panneton, whose article includes three links to Roman Catholic Gear, an online shop that sells rosaries.”

“Asked to comment on the article, Robert P. George, professor of political theory at Princeton University and former chairman of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), told CNA:”

‘“It looks to me like the guy who is politicizing The Rosary and treating it as a weapon in the culture war is … Daniel Panneton. Although it’s hard to miss the classic anti-Catholic tropes in the piece, perhaps he isn’t actually a bigot. Maybe he just overwrought and needs to take an aspirin or two and lie down for a while.’”

“Chad Pecknold, theology professor at Catholic University of America, told CNA the publication of the article points to a ‘theo-political’ conflict in the culture.”

‘“The politically elite core in left-liberal media hate Western civilization and they mean to topple every natural and supernatural sign of it. That’s why it’s not sufficient to simply run a piece on right-wing gun cultures, but they must tie it to something which is theologically central to the civilization they feel most threatens their progressive ziggurat. It’s a sign of the theo-political conflict which now grips us (What he’s referring to is simply Good vs. Evil.); even still, they severely underestimate the power of Our Lady to reign victorious over evil,’ Pecknold said.”

“Fr. Pius Pietrzyk, OP, a Dominican priest of the Province of St. Joseph, told CNA, ‘The article is a long-running stream of inaccuracies, logical fallacies, and distortions.’”

This is what the great deceiver, Satan, does best…, mislead, lie and distort, and guide his minions, in this case Daniel Panneton and The Atlantic magazine, to mislead, lie and distort.

“The author, he said, fails to understand that ‘the notion of “spiritual combat” has been with the Church from time immemorial.  Recall that a traditional view of Confirmation is that it made one a “soldier for Christ.’””

You can consider me a “soldier for Christ.”

What side do you fall on?

This is a much more important question than just a political one.

Don’t be a “Biden!”

Yes, my friends…, besides being a Godforsaken family name, I’m proposing we officially make “Biden” a new noun.

By doing this, we can actually make the English language a little easier to use, as the new noun “Biden” can be used in the place many existing words.

It should be noted that both Joe and his son, Hunter, have contributed to this new noun usage.

For example, you could say, “Don’t be a Biden,” as opposed to saying:

“Don’t be a fool.”

“Don’t be a liar.”

“Don’t be a crook”

“Don’t be a deceiver.”

“Don’t be an idiot.”

“Don’t be a corrupt politician.”

“Don’t be an illegitimate president.”

“Don’t be a cheater.”

“Don’t be someone’s puppet.”

“Don’t be a phony.”

“Don’t be coward.”

“Don’t be a jerk.”

“Don’t be a traitor.”

Don’t be a plagiarizer.”

“Don’t be a Pedo.”

“Don’t be a privileged criminal.”

“Don’t be above the law.”

“Don’t talk like cognitive mess.”

“Don’t be a disgusting drug abuser.

“Don’t be a disgusting woman abuser.”

“Don’t be a jackass.”

“Don’t be an a$$hole.”

“Don’t walk like your ‘Depends’ are full.”

“Don’t be a moron.”

“Don’t be a back-stabber.”

“Don’t be a betrayer.”

“Don’t be a pathetic loser.”

You see…, the new noun “Biden” could be used across the English language in many different ways!

It’s true…, you really don’t want to be a Biden!

I wonder what dictionary will be brave enough to add this new noun to its lexicon?

It may take a while, but I’m sure this is going to catch on. 

And, again…, don’t be a Biden!

Transition this, Illegitimate Joe!

We hear again and again from Sleepy Joe and all of the village idiots in his administration that we need to “transition” away from using fossil fuels. But, what are we supposed to transition to cognitively challenged Joe?

Wind, solar, and nuclear energy only produces about 20% of the energy we need. Which means fossil fuels account for 80% of the energy we currently use in this country.

There are currently 276 million vehicles on the road in the USA. Of those 276 million, only 2.5 million are all electric or hybrid electric vehicles.., that less than 1%! And remember, there are NO electric semi-trucks to transport everything in this country.

And where do electric vehicles get there energy from to charge their batteries? At least 80% of that energy comes from fossil fuels! So, EVs are not necessarily the answer either.   

Your Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg, testified before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on the transition to “domestic clean energy production” by the Biden administration, which launched an initiative to ensure 50% of all auto sales are electric vehicles by 2030.”

The topic soon turned to gas prices, which reached record levels in June. House Republicans questioned Buttigieg on how Americans struggling to pay $5 per gallon for gas could afford to purchase an electric vehicle.

Buttigieg then reiterated that the “pain” at the pump could be offset by using an electric vehicle, and that this “pain” was necessary to speed up the transition away from fossil fuels.

“The more pain we are all experiencing from the high price of gas, the more benefit there is for those who can access an electric vehicle,” Buttigieg said.

“So you’re saying the more pain we have, the more benefit we’re gonna get?” Rep. Carlos Gimenez, R-Fla., asked. “I think that’s what I heard you say.”

Buttigieg emphasized, “Of course – no, no, that’s what you heard me say. I know you want me to say it so bad but honestly, sir, what we’re saying is we could have no pain at all by making EVs cheaper for everyone.”

No, Mayor Pete, I’m pretty sure Rep. Gimenez heard you correctly, as did I.

And either way, your misinformation campaign is quite alarming.

Then, recently, Biden’s ever competent, White House National Head Climate Advisor, Gina McCarthy, said on CNN, “Just because Congress couldn’t get it done (referring to climate change/Green New (Raw) Deal, he’s (“President” Biden) going to move forward with every power available to him (and then some, I imagine) to make the change in the shift to clean energy.”

That’s all well and good Ms. Climate Advisor, except for the fact that clean energy is not readily available in the usable amounts we need, and probably won’t be for decades. In the meantime, people and our economy still need to function in the real world…, not your imaginary dream world.

Hopefully, most of this foolishness will come to a screeching halt after the 2022 mid-term elections, and then return to some form of normalcy and common sense in 2025…, if we can last that long!

Hopefully.

How stupid do the democrats think we are?

In most cases, when considering their own minions, the democrats believe they’re extremely gullible and stupid, which I would have to agree with! Regarding everyone else, they simply don’t care.

The democrats have no problem spewing all sorts of propaganda and misinformation, knowing full well the fake news mainstream media will either promote their disingenuous narrative or give it zero coverage, depending on what is more advantageous.      

According to Jamie Gangel, Zachary Cohen and Ryan Nobles of CNN, “The US Secret Service erased text messages from January 5 and 6, 2021, shortly after they were requested by oversight officials investigating the agency’s response to the US Capitol riot, according to a letter given to the House select committee investigating the insurrection and first obtained by CNN.”

Hmmm…, that’s odd!

Well, not really. This is behavior we have now come to expect from our swampy federal law enforcement organizations.

And I’m not sure how this story saw the light of day from CNN. I’m sure the three authors are either in hot water, or looking for new jobs by now, along with the editor that let this story hit the internet.

“The letter, which was originally sent to the House and Senate Homeland Security Committees by the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General, says the messages were erased from the system as part of a device-replacement program after the watchdog asked the agency for records related to its electronic communications.”

‘“First, the Department notified us that many US Secret Service text messages from January 5 and 6, 2021, were erased as part of a device-replacement program. The USSS erased those text messages after OIG requested records of electronic communications from the USSS, as part of our evaluation of events at the Capitol on January 6,’ the letter from DHS IG Joseph Cuffari stated.”

The key phrase to note here is, “The USSS erased those text messages AFTER the OIG requested records of electronic communications from the USSS, as part of our evaluation of events at the Capitol on January 6.”

‘“Second, DHS personnel have repeatedly told OIG inspectors that they were not permitted to provide records directly to OIG and that such records had to first undergo review by DHS attorneys,’ Cuffari added. ‘This review led to weeks-long delays in OIG obtaining records and created confusion over whether all records had been produced.’”

This is similar to how the swamp releases documents only after they have been redacted (Redaction in its sanitization sense (as distinguished from its other editing sense) is the blacking out or deletion of text in a document or the result of doing so. It is intended to allow the selective disclosure of information in a document while keeping other parts of the document secret. Typically the result is a document that is suitable for publication or for dissemination to others rather than the intended audience of the original document.). They typically claim the redactions are necessary to protect national security, when, in fact, the redactions are made to protect swampy backsides.     

The Intercept, is an American non-profit news organization founded by Glenn Greenwald, Jeremy Scahill, and Laura Poitras, “and was first to report the existence of the letter.” They are the media “watchdogs” referred to in this article. 

“The Homeland Security inspector general did not immediately respond to CNN’s request for comment.”

Again…, that’s odd.

And again…, not really.

“The US Secret Service pushed back on the allegations in a statement, saying that ‘the insinuation that the Secret Service maliciously deleted text messages following a request is false. In fact, the Secret Service has been fully cooperating with the OIG in every respect, whether it be interviews, documents, emails, or texts.’”

Ha! How dare we insinuate “that the Secret Service maliciously deleted text messages!” after all, the Secret Service says they were, “fully cooperating with the OIG in every respect.”

Ya…, why would Congressional investigators want to see these text messages in the midst of a massive Congressional investigation concerning the events surrounding January 6th?

It seems that the Secret Service is trying to employ an old Jedi mind trick! Do you recall Obi Wan Kenobi, from Star Wars, when he said, “These aren’t the droids you’re looking for?”

“More than a year after the riot, the Homeland Security inspector general review of the Secret Service and its actions on January 6 remains ongoing.”

Should Joe Biden be impeached?

My simple answer to this question is “YES,” but you be the judge.

A better question may be, is Joe Biden a Traitor?

“President” Biden has said more than once that he is doing everything he can to help lower gas prices here at home, and that he’s “fighting like hell to keep prices down.” That, of course, is an insulting slap in the face lie.

Lies, lies, and more lies.

Now we learn this!

According to Arathy Somasekhar, for Reuters news service, “Oil from U.S. reserves sent overseas as gasoline prices stay high.”

Excuse me…, say what?!

“HOUSTON, July 5 (Reuters) – More than 5 million barrels of oil that were part of a historic U.S. emergency reserves release to lower domestic fuel prices were exported to Europe and Asia last month, according to data and sources, even as U.S. gasoline and diesel prices hit record highs.”

“The export of crude and fuel is blunting the impact of the moves by U.S. President Joe Biden to lower record pump prices. Biden on Saturday renewed a call for gasoline suppliers to cut their prices, drawing criticism from Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.”

“About 1 million barrels per day is being released from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) through October.”

Hmmm. Interesting. Draining our strategic reserve right on up until the mid-term elections in November.  

“The flow is draining the SPR, which last month fell to the lowest since 1986.”

You see, the “Strategic Petroleum Reserve” is only “strategic” in as much as it can be used politically by Biden and his democrat friends, as far as they’re concerned.   

‘“The SPR remains a critical energy security tool to address global crude oil supply disruptions,’ a Department of Energy spokesperson said, adding that the emergency releases helped ensure stable supply of crude oil.”

“The fourth-largest U.S. oil refiner, Phillips 66 (PSX.N), shipped about 470,000 barrels of sour crude from the Big Hill SPR storage site in Texas to Trieste, Italy, according to U.S. Customs data. Trieste is home to a pipeline that sends oil to refineries in central Europe.”

“Atlantic Trading & Marketing (ATMI), an arm of French oil major TotalEnergies (TTEF.PA), exported 2 cargoes of 560,000 barrels each, the data showed.”

“Phillips 66 declined to comment on trading activity. ATMI did not respond to a request for comment.”

“Cargoes of SPR crude were also headed to the Netherlands and to a Reliance (RELI.NS) refinery in India, an industry source said. A third cargo headed to China, another source said.”

Soooo, in an effort to lower gas prices here in America, The Biden administration is shipping our strategic reserve oil over to Europe, and China?!!!

Sheela Tobben, Devika Krishna Kumar, and Javier Blas, reporting for Bloomberg, agree that, “Much of Biden’s Oil Release Will Likely End Up in China, India.”

“A large portion of the barrels that will be offered from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve will likely be exported to China and India, traders said.”

Soooo, this is an example of doing everything you can, Illegitimate Joe, to lower gas price here at home?

Why in thee hell would we be ending crude oil to China?!

China?!

China??!!

China???!!!

And why isn’t anyone in the media making Biden and his friends answer that question?!

I guess, in a way, one of “president” Biden’s economic advisors answered this for them, when he was responding to a question about how long an American family is going to have to deal with these high gas prices.

According the RealClear Politics website, “Brian Deese, President Biden’s Director of National Economic Council, defended the administration’s energy policies on Thursday in an interview on CNN.”

‘“What we heard from the president today was about the stakes,’ Deese said. ‘This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm. But at the same time what I’d say to that family, to Americans across the country is, you have a present administration that is going to do everything in its power to blunt those price increases and bring those prices down.’”

“This is about the liberal world order???????”

I’m pretty sure that little nugget wasn’t supposed to actually be said.

What exactly is “the liberal world order,” Brian Deese, and why does this “liberal world order” seem to take priority over the United States of America and her people? You know…, the foolish people who pay your salary, the salaries of all of your liberal friends, and the salary of “president” Biden.

He could maybe be asked what and who exactly is this “liberal world order,” and who is running it?

Just sayin’.

Then we hear, again, the lie, “you have a present administration that is going to do everything in its power to blunt those price increases and bring those prices down.”

Dear “President” Biden, and dear Mr. Deese…, we are sick and tired of your lies and now your treasonous actions.

President Xi, and all of his friends over in China, must have a good laugh at our expense on a daily basis.  

So, again I’ll ask, is Joe Biden a Traitor?  

My answer and your answer should be a resounding “YES.” But not only Illegitimate Joe, but all of his controllers, advisors, and other partners in crime.

The people I really feel sorry for are those Americans who just live their lives, work their jobs, pay their bills, and generally believe their government has their best interest at heart.  

After the November mid-term elections, the first thing the newly elected Congress should do is move to impeach Illegitimate Joe and all the rest of these “liberal world order” traitors.

And that would be letting them off easy.

The Media: From Watch Dogs to Lap Dogs!

Yes, my friends…, it’s true.

But first, let’s establish what we’re talking about here.  

Harvard’s “Colonel Watchdog” publication says, “Watchdog journalism is a form of investigative journalism where journalists, authors or publishers of a news publication fact-check and interview political and public figures to increase accountability. Watchdog journalism usually takes on a form of beat reporting about specific aspects and issues.”

Author Thomas Hanitzsch, from his book “Deconstructing Journalism Culture: Toward a Universal Theory,” writes, “In the course of their work, watchdog journalists gather information about wrongdoings of people in power and deliver it to the public, so the public can understand what happens in society and stop wrongdoings. Watchdog journalism is different from propagandist journalists, who often report articles from a government’s perspective. Due to watchdog journalism’s unique features, it also often works as the fourth estate (or the fourth branch of government). The general issues, topics, or scandals that watchdog journalists cover are political corruption and any wrongdoings of people in power such as government officials or corporation executives. One of the important things that watchdog journalists have to do is uncover hidden evidence about wrongdoings.”

According to The Lufkin Daily News, “America’s Founders regarded a free press as so vital to the new nation that they took care to include that right in the First Amendment to the Constitution.”

“The Founders spoke glowingly about the press as a pillar of democracy and guarantor of liberty. Thomas Jefferson, for instance, famously wrote in 1787 that ‘were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter.’”

“George Washington framed the issue of free expression in almost apocalyptic terms: ‘If freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.’”

“Yet discussing the free press of their day, the Founders also could often sound like those who are decrying ‘fake news’ in 2020.”

“Under a barrage of criticism from newspapers published by his political opponents, Washington painted journalists as ‘infamous scribblers.’ Benjamin Franklin, himself a very successful newspaper publisher, described the press of his time as a resentful, vicious institution comparable to the Spanish Inquisition.”

“Jefferson frequently condemned the press as passionately as he had advanced their right to publish freely. ‘I deplore … the putrid state into which our newspapers have passed and the malignity, the vulgarity, and mendacious spirit of those who write for them,’ he wrote in 1814. ‘Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper,’ he complained in a letter to another friend.”

“For good measure he wrote to his ally in Congress, the Massachusetts politician Barnabas Bidwell: ‘As for what is not true, you will always find abundance in the newspapers.’”

“On this Independence Day 244 years later, it’s worth reflecting on the lessons the Founders have for us as we assess the role and the practices of the news media today.”

“The first lesson is that while the nation’s leaders and institutions may chafe under the public criticism that accompanies reporting of their shortcomings, the role of the press in holding those leaders and institutions accountable is indispensable to the workings of a democratic society.”

“Most importantly, the press’ proper role must be recognized by the leaders and institutions being held accountable.”

“As abused as he was by the partisan press, Jefferson nevertheless declared, ‘I am … for freedom of the press, and against all violations of the Constitution to silence by force and not by reason the complaints or criticisms, just or unjust, of our citizens against the conduct of their agents.’”

“Among those slinging partisan unjust criticisms was the newspaper co-founded by James Madison, who reasoned that ‘some degree of abuse is inseparable from the proper use of everything, and in no instance is this more true than in that of the press.’”

“Yet, he went on to argue that trying to regulate the ‘abuse’ of the press threatens to strangle its vitality and utility to a free people: ‘To the press alone, checkered as it is with abuses, the world is indebted for all the triumphs which have been gained by reason and humanity over error and oppression.’”

“And therein lies the most fundamental lesson the Founders have for us in 2020: The press and the government may often have an adversarial relationship — but the government must not attempt to delegitimize the press and its work because they are essential to a free society.”

“Would any of us want to live in a country where the news media isn’t freely allowed to report on the actions of its government? Any harm done by an overreaching press would be nothing compared to a government left unchecked. As much as the news media may rub some the wrong way, it is frightening to think of a society with no free press.”

I think we can all agree that none of us would want to, “live in a country where the news media isn’t freely allowed to report on the actions of its government.”

The problem is, there isn’t much of the media remaining which is actually doing this.

In fact, we see the majority of the “news” media choosing to ignore many stories by partaking in propaganda by omission, like Hillary’s emails, Hillary’s promotion of the Russian hoax against President Trump, Hunter Biden’s escapades along with Illegitimate Joe’s involvement, or the manipulation of the 2020 election, for example, or outrightly promoting false democrat narratives, like the media promoting the Russian hoax against President Trump for over three straight years, along with their daily regurgitation of democrat talking points.  

As much as the Founding Fathers questioned the free press back in their day, I think they would be stunned and greatly alarmed at the role the media is playing with our government, and politics in general, today.

Yes, for the most part, the media in 2022 has completed its evolution from government Watch Dogs to liberal government Lap Dogs.

“President” Biden knows how to stop these shootings!

Oh, really, Joe?

How long have shootings like this been going on, Sleepy Joe?

You have been a senator, a vice president, and now The President, going all the way back to 1973!

1973!!!

You have been in a position to do something to protect our school children for close to 50 years!

Again…, you have been in a position to do something to protect our school children for close to 50 years!!!

49 years, exactly.

49 years!

And now, suddenly, you have all the answers?

Excuse us all if we’re a little skeptical, “President” Joseph Robinette Biden.

Yes, the “R” in Joseph R. Biden stands for “Robinette!”

But that’s a whole different blog for another day.

Getting back to Sleepy Joe’s answers for these school shootings…, yes, my friends, here we are, again, sadly mourning the loss of innocent young lives, while searching for answers about what we can do to prevent this happening again.

And Incoherent Joe says we need to limit the types of guns people can have and tighten the background checking process used when people buy a gun.

Hmmm.

Are you referring to tightening the background checking process that your own son, Hunter, got past, by lying on the application (which is a federal crime for the rest of us poor slobs), but then was not charged with a crime (this is a felony, in fact), and did not suffer ANY consequences for skirting our gun laws?!

Is that what you’re proposing Creepy Joe?  

I would like to harken back to my blog from March 26, 2021, titled “Hidin’ for Biden,” which reads:

According to Charlie McCarthy for Newsmax, “The Secret Service interceded on Hunter Biden’s behalf to quash evidence of a gun purchase.”

Oh, really?

Now why would they do that?

Can you, in your wildest dreams, ever imagine the Secret Service, or any other governmental organization for that matter, going out of its way to protect one of former President Trump’s children in this manner?

The answer, of course, is “no.”

What we have here is just another example of the legal double standards for those who are friends of “the swamp,” and those who aren’t.

Democrats, in other words.

“Based on information from two sources, Politico [a political news website] reported the Secret Service [which falls under the Department of Homeland Security] tried to obtain paperwork for a gun sale to [Hunter] Biden after the weapon was tossed into a trash can and then was missing.”

“The report surfaced on the day President Joe Biden was scheduled to hold his first solo press conference since taking office.”

I wonder if any of the press will ask him about it?

My guess would be, “over Jen Psaki’s dead body!” 

“The Secret Service said it had no record of agents investigating the incident, and the president, not under protection at that time, said through a spokesperson he had no knowledge of Secret Service involvement.”

Really?

So, I guess either the Secret Service is lying, or some other agency was masquerading as the Secret Service.

Hmmm.

“Law enforcement officials said any involvement by the Secret Service on behalf of the Biden family or on its own initiative would be inappropriate in an incident already under investigation by Delaware State Police with the involvement of the FBI.”

“According to law enforcement officials and a copy of the police report obtained by Politico, Hunter Biden’s sister-in-law, Hallie, searched Hunter’s pickup truck and found a .38 revolver on Oct. 23, 2018.”

Interesting. That’s a lie, but go on.

“She then took her brother-in-law’s gun, wrapped it in a shopping bag, and threw it in a trash can behind a high-end grocery store [Oh, that’s okay, as long as it was a “high-end” grocery store!]. When she returned later to retrieve it, the gun was gone.”

First, it’s illegal to just throw a gun in the trash, which of course Ms. Hallie will face no repercussions for.

Second, why did she go back and go dumpster diving for it?

“With the trash can located across from a high school, Delaware police began investigating and were concerned the missing gun could be used in a crime.”

“Secret Service agents then approached the owner of the store where Hunter bought the gun.”

So, these supposed “Secret Service agents” must have had access to gun registration records, if they knew where he bought the gun.  

“They requested the paperwork involving the sale, according to two people — one with firsthand knowledge of the episode, and the other briefed after the fact by a Secret Service agent.”

If these people already had all of the information regarding the sale of this gun, why did they want the store’s paperwork?

The ONLY reason they would want the store’s paperwork would be to erase any recorded tie of Hunter Biden to this gun.

But why would they have the need to do that, if Hunter Biden bought the gun legally?  

“The store owner, Ron Palmieri, refused to hand over the paperwork. He suspected Secret Service officers wanted to hide ownership of the missing gun in case it were to be involved in a crime, the two people said.”

Good job, Mr. Palmieri…, and that was a good guess, but it wasn’t the reason they wanted your paperwork.  

“Palmieri eventually turned over the papers to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives [ATF], which oversees federal gun laws.”

I’m sure we’ll learn later that these papers have somehow been “misplaced” or “lost.”

“The gun was returned days later by an older man who regularly rummages through the grocery store’s trash to collect recyclable items, according to sources.”

Ha!

What are the odds of that?!

“No charges or arrests resulted from the incident.”

That’s odd.

Although, if anyone would have been arrested, it would have been the gun store owner, or the old dumpster diver who returned the gun.

Just sayin’.

“Although Joe Biden was not under Secret Service protection at the time, individual Secret Service agents at offices in Wilmington, Del., and Philadelphia informally monitored the former vice president’s security, according to one law enforcement official.”

I’m sorry, but how exactly does the Secret Service “informally monitor the former vice president’s security?”

And what would all of this have to do with the former vice president’s security, anyway?

I guess it depends on what all falls under the umbrella of “security.” 

“As an example, the official said the Secret Service’s Wilmington office called the Delaware State Police in 2019 to arrange security for a public appearance by Joe Biden.”

“The Secret Service declined to confirm whether it had informal involvement in Biden’s security during that period.”

C’mon, now!  Did they “informally” monitor Biden’s “security” or didn’t they?

The answer is “yes” when that’s convenient, “no” when that’s convenient, and “we don’t know” when that’s convenient.

“A Delaware State Police spokesman responded to an inquiry about whether the Secret Service requested security for Biden during the period. ‘I have reached out to our sergeant who oversees the Executive Protection Unit with the Delaware State Police. He is unaware of any such requests or services provided,’ the spokesman said.”

So, again, someone is lying here.

Can you guess who?

I bet you can!

“In copies of the Firearms Transaction Record and a receipt for the gun dated Oct. 12, 2018, and obtained by Politico, Hunter Biden answered ‘no’ to a question on the transaction record that asks, ‘Are you an unlawful user of, or addicted to, marijuana or any depressant, stimulant, narcotic drug, or any other controlled substance?’”

Ohhhh!

There it is!

There’s the reason the people who “informally” look out for former vice president Biden wanted to hide the fact that Hunter Biden bought this gun.

HE ILLEGALLY PURCHASED THE GUN!

“Hunter Biden was discharged from the Navy Reserve five years earlier after testing positive for cocaine. He and family members have spoken about his history of drug use.”

He was probably wasted when he bought it!

“Lying on the form is a felony, though prosecutions for it are rare.”

Yeah, “prosecutions for it are rare,” if, like I said, you’re a friend of “the swamp.”

Anyone else would be facing felony charges.

Believe that!

Would you like me to tell you what I believe happened here?

Okay, I’m assuming you do!

Here’s the deal, as Sleepy Joe would say.

Hunter Biden bought the gun for whatever reason, and had second thoughts about it, since he lied in order to get it. If he didn’t actually have the gun, no one could ever really tie it to him…, at least in the world he lives in. 

So, he asked Hallie to toss it into a dumpster, which she did.

After thinking about it for a while, I’m sure they became worried someone would find it, use it in a crime, and it would then be traced back to Hunter.

So, Hunter talked Hallie into going back and retrieving the gun, so they could dispose of it in a different and safer way, for him.

When she went back to the “high-end” store and couldn’t find it in the trash, they didn’t know what to do.

Ha!

You’re brilliant, Hunter!

What an idiot?!

A real chip off the old block!

Then, when the old guy turned-up (my hero) and turned the gun in, that’s when the fun started.

That’s when the gun was traced back to Hunter, and the “Secret Service” had to get involved. 

“Neither George Mesires, a lawyer for Hunter Biden, nor Hallie Biden responded to requests for comment.”

No surprise there!

And, of course, the mainstream, democrat propaganda, media won’t touch this with a ten-foot pole.

By the way…, what ever happened to the investigation into Hunter’s laptop, and that whole money from China and money from Russia for the Biden family thing?

I’m sure we’ll find out where Jimmy Hoffa is buried before we hear anything else about the Bidens as a result of these “investigation.”

*****************************

So, there we have the story behind Hunter’s illegal gun purchase, and the effectiveness of these background checks.

When Sleepy Joe starts talking about background checks, why doesn’t anyone in the media question him, regarding his son’s experience with a background check?

Just sayin’.

So, please don’t start lecturing us all, Illegitimate Joe, about what we need to do to curb these school shootings. You’ve been in a position to “do” something for decades, and, obviously, you haven’t done one damn thing that has made any difference at all!

Please see my recent blog for some real answers to this school shooting problem.

Let’s protect our children from these shooters first, then we can look at addressing some of the underlying reasons for the occurrences of these shootings.

Let’s insist, from our representatives, that they actually address the school shootings problem, as I have suggested. Or, we’ll be right back here, having this same discussion all too soon, and more students will have lost their lives due to more inaction by our government on every level.

Another school shooting massacre.

Yes, my friends, here we are, again, sadly mourning the loss of innocent young lives, while searching for answers about what we can do to prevent this happening again.

Exactly what has changed since the last time we were mourning and asking these questions?

The simple answer is nothing.

What exactly do you think will change in the future before we are mourning again and asking the same questions again?

The simple answer again, is probably nothing.

That is so odd to me and so unacceptable as well.

What, or who, is more important to protect than our own innocent children?

Again, who is more important to protect than our own innocent children?!

And again I ask, WHO IS MORE IMPORTANT TO PROTECT THAN OUR OWN INNOCENT SONS, DAUGHTERS, GRANDSONS AND GRANDDAUGHTERS, NIECES AND NEPHEWS?!!!

Politicians?

We pay quite a bill to offer personal security to our elected officials.

ARE THEY MORE IMPORTANT TO PROTECT THAN OUR OWN INNOCENT SONS, DAUGHTERS, GRANDSONS AND GRANDDAUGHTERS, NIECES AND NEPHEWS?!!!

Governmental Bureaucrats?

We pay quite a bill to provide secure locations for these bureaucrats to perform their duties.

ARE THEY MORE IMPORTANT TO PROTECT THAN OUR OWN INNOCENT SONS, DAUGHTERS, GRANDSONS AND GRANDDAUGHTERS, NIECES AND NEPHEWS?!!!

The government is obviously pretty good at protecting themselves.

The victims of these shootings and their families get a lot of lip service from these politicians, and everyone else, quite frankly, but that’s about all.

Four years ago I wrote blogs addressing this issue. Nothing has changed since then, and I believe my suggestions for solutions still holds true today.

On February 16, 2018, I wrote my blog titled: “What can we REALLY do about these school shootings?” This blog reads as follows:

First of all, let’s acknowledge that there is no easy answer.

Next, let’s understand that there really is nothing we can do to guarantee there won’t be another school shooting.

It’s hard for us to accept that we are kind of helpless here, but to a certain extent we are. That is just reality.

Passing another law will not solve this problem. Unless I’m mistaken, murder is already against the law.  So now what?

All we can do is take positive steps in many areas, that when combined, may swing the odds of more shootings in our favor.

One – We have to get serious about school campus security. ALL SCHOOLS need an outside perimeter fence before you even get near the school that has one main gate or entrance. This gate should have armed security personnel that only admit individuals that should be there.  Metal detectors would also need to be installed.  Money for these improvements could be incorporated into the new infrastructure spending bill.

Two – Background checks when purchasing a weapon or ammunition need to be more extensive and more comprehensive. Social media should be checked and the community where the purchaser lives should be canvassed for input as to whether anyone has objections to this individual owning a weapon.  The Second Amendment gives the people “the right to keep and bear arms.”  It doesn’t say we have to be stupid about it or make it too easy.

Three – Access to mental health resources has to be greatly enhanced. When people are experiencing issues or are aware of others with issues, assistance needs to be available right then, not a month or two, or three, down the road when a psychiatrist’s or a psychologist’s schedule has an opening.  Mental health, in general, has to be just as much of a consideration as physical health.

Four – The President should establish a component agency that would fall under The Department of Homeland Security and deal solely with the issues that affect school security.

If we can do these four things, for starters, we will be on the way to making some real positive changes that could make a difference. Will these things be cheap? No. Will they be worth it?  Yes.  Ask the families of the latest shooting victims.

If we don’t begin to take real, effective, steps towards dealing with this problem we will be doomed to watching and experiencing the reoccurrence of these horrible shootings again and again. It may be your family that is directly affected next time.  I pray that isn’t the case.

Praying for God’s help and God’s comfort for the victims, their families, and all of those involved is good, but they say that, “God helps those who help themselves.”

Let’s help ourselves and praise God for giving us the wisdom to do so.

***********************

Then, on February 26, 2018, I wrote my blog titled: “Again, what we should do if we REALLY want to solve the school shootings problem and make our schools ‘safe zones.’” This blog reads as follows:

We could prevent almost 100% of “school shootings” if each school had protective fencing with one main gate or entrance, on the perimeter of the actual campus or school, which was monitored by security personnel along with metal detectors.

It’s as simple as that.

All we need to do is pass a “safe school” spending bill to get the ball rolling, and within a year or so we will have addressed the immediate issue.

At the same time, we can work on changing how we do background checks when purchasing a weapon or ammunition. Our checks need to be more extensive and more comprehensive.  Social media should be checked and the community where the purchaser lives should be canvassed for input as to whether anyone has objections to this individual owning a weapon.

Access to mental health resources has to be greatly enhanced as well. When people are experiencing issues or are aware of others with issues, assistance needs to be available right then, not a month or two, or three, down the road when a psychiatrist’s or a psychologist’s schedule has an opening.  Mental health, in general, has to be just as much of a consideration as physical health.  In too many cases the insurance companies are dictating the type of help we can get and when.  This has to change.

Then finally, the President should establish a component agency that would fall under The Department of Homeland Security and deal solely with the issues that affect school security.

I see that arming and training our teachers is being advanced by quite a few people. This may seem like a good idea to deter an intruder, but what about when the shooter is a student at the school (which is the case is most situations)?  Do we want that image of teachers gunning down students in school?  Do we want our schools to become “the shootout at the O.K. Corral, or do we want to avoid that situation from occurring in the first place?

Enhancing our background checking system is something that must be done, but also something that can’t be counted on as our last line of defense either. In the case of the Parkland, Florida shooter, there were more red flags raised on this kid than you’d see at a Chinese military parade!  I mean, it doesn’t get any better than this case as far as warning signs, and he still was not stopped.

There are many other ideas that have merit as well, and there’s no reason we can’t attack this problem from a hundred different angles at the same time. But, again…

We could prevent almost 100% of “school shootings” if each school had protective fencing with one main gate or entrance, on the perimeter of the actual campus or school, which was monitored by security personnel along with metal detectors.

It’s as simple as that.

***********************

Like I mentioned in my prior blogs, is solving this problem going to be cheap?

No.

Is solving this problem worth the money?

Yes.

We just sent Ukraine over $40 billion to help solve their problems.

Is Ukraine more important than or children?

Apparently so.

Our government routinely, and annually, sends billions of dollars in aid to other countries.

Are all of these other countries more important than our children?

Again, apparently so.

All of the politicians would say “no,” but their actions say “yes.”

Can we please get back to putting America first?

Can we please put our children first, where they belong?

Can we please stop talking and crying about this problem and start doing something that would offer an effective solution…, like what I have suggested in my blogs for years?!

The time has definitely come to seriously address the issue of saving more of our children’s live in the future.

You know, I noticed that The Congress and The Senate politicians sure threw up a fence fast enough around the Capitol and stationed thousands of troops there when they felt the least bit threatened.

Just sayin’.

I really pray I don’t have to write another blog like this again.

Please share this blog.

Let’s make it go viral.

Let’s make a difference for all of our children.

Thank you, MrEricksonRules.

I’m sorry, but Janet Yellen is a fool and a tool.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, and whoever or whatever else you care to identify as, “President” Biden’s Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, is the latest puppet of the democrats, testifying before the Senate, and saying, “Overturning Roe v. Wade would be damaging to the economy, and women.”

How exactly does the topic of abortion get weaved into Yellen’s testimony in front of the Senate Banking Committee, regarding the economy?  

Janet Yellen (The elderly Dutch Boy) is 75 years old.

As long as the democrats want to “go there,” I would support abortion being expanded up to the age of 80.

Hey, it’s never too late to sacrifice yourself for the good of the economy, right Janet? You’ve had a good run, now give someone else a chance. You don’t want to suffer through this world-ending climate change anyway, do you?

According to Reuters, via The New York Post, “Janet Yellen said that research has shown that denying women access to abortions increases their odds of living in poverty or on public assistance.”

Research has also shown that being impacted by debilitating high inflation “increases their (women’s) odds of living in poverty or on public assistance.”

Just sayin’.

“Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Tuesday said eliminating women’s access to abortion would have ‘very damaging effects’ on the US economy, keeping some women from completing their educations and reducing their lifetime earnings potential and participation in the labor force.”

Yes, pathetic “Dutch Boy,” I would certainly agree that, “Eliminating women’s access to abortion would have very damaging effects on the US economy, keeping some women from completing their educations and reducing their lifetime earnings potential and participation in the labor force.”

If you’re not allowed to be born, girls or boys, that would definitely keep them from completing, or even starting for that matter, their educations, while reducing their lifetime earnings potential to zero, with no opportunity to participate in the labor force.

“Yellen’s comments at a Senate Banking Committee hearing came just over a week after the leak of a draft Supreme Court decision that would overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 ruling that established a constitutional right to abortion. The pending decision has raised fears that many more states would enact far-reaching abortion restrictions.”

“The issue dominated a hearing about Treasury’s Financial Stability Oversight Council annual report.”

“Yellen, the first female (Some may beg to differ, however…, and can “she” even define what a “woman” is?) Treasury secretary, said in response to a senator’s question that research has shown that Roe v. Wade had a favorable impact on the well-being of children and that denying women access to abortions increases their odds of living in poverty or on public assistance.”

“Research has shown,” huh?

“Research has shown that Roe v. Wade had a favorable impact on the well-being of children?!!!!!!”

What?!!!!!

And, “Living in poverty or on public assistance” is better than not being given the opportunity to live at all, isn’t it?

‘“I believe that eliminating the rights of women to make decisions about when and whether to have children would have very damaging effects on the economy and would set women back decades,’ Yellen said.”

There “she” goes with at “women” stuff again. Haven’t the democrats lost the right to refer to any issue from the perspective of a woman or women?

And, talk about governmental decisions having “very damaging effects on the economy and would set women (and everyone else) back decades!” We need look no further than Illegitimate Joe and the rest of his puppeteers!

“Yellen’s comments drew a rebuke from Republican Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina, who said her framing of the economic consequences of the abortion debate were ‘harsh’ and inappropriate for such a painful social issue.”

‘“I think people can disagree on the issue of being pro-life or pro-abortion. But in the end, I think framing it in the context of labor force participation, it just feels callous to me,’ said Scott, adding that he was raised by a Black single mother in poverty.”

“Yellen responded by saying that reproductive rights allow women to plan ‘fulfilling and satisfying’ lives, which includes having the financial resources to raise a child.”

‘“In many cases, abortions are of teenage women, particularly low-income and often Black, who aren’t in a position to be able to care for children, have unexpected pregnancies, and it deprives them of the ability often to continue their education to later participate in the workforce,’ Yellen said.”

‘“So there is a spillover into labor force participation, but it means the children will grow up in poverty and do worse themselves,’ Yellen said. ‘This is not harsh. This is the truth,’ she added.”

“The truth,” Janet?!

You can’t handle “the truth!!!”

“Fellow Democrats came to Yellen’s defense (You don’t say?!), including Senator Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada, who admonished Scott not to ‘impose your experience and your circumstances on others until you walk in their shoes.’”

Ha! Look who’s talking!

“Senator Tina Smith, a Minnesota Democrat and another member of the banking panel, told CNN that Yellen was expressing a fundamental truth about women’s autonomy.”

‘“She was expressing what I believe almost every woman knows: If you don’t have control over your reproductive life, you don’t have control over any aspect of your life, including your economic opportunity,’ Smith said.”

Do you mean, “If YOU CAN’T control YOUR OWN reproductive life?”
