Welcome to Joe Biden’s Amerikka

Gas prices aren’t quite there yet, but they are on their way. When Michigan residents woke up yesterday, they were not only greeted by 6-8 inches of snow, but also by gas stations informing them that regular unleaded was $2.69, a full 50 cents higher than when Biden took office less than a month ago.

Through Biden’s executive order stopping the pipeline he accomplished a trifecta – 1. decreasing America’s energy independence; 2. ensuring the price of gas would rise, which is a goal of the left and 3. killing good-paying jobs. As if that wasn’t enough, he took care of Democratic-supporter Warren Buffet’s railroad, which – without the pipeline – is the only way to get fuel from Canada,

Meanwhile, the media fawns over the Bidens and their regime, even dim-witted Jen Psaki – the press secretary.

The media couldn’t say enough about Dr. Jill Biden’s Valentines Day White House decorations, which resembled gym decorations for a dance by some unimaginative 6th graders … or the candy aisle at Dollar Tree. It’s the same media that lauded Michelle Obama when she wore table cloths to major functions. You can educate stupid people, but it doesn’t make them any less stupid.

    As with unaffordable ammunition, unaffordable fuel is a FEATURE…not a BUG.

    The Left doesn’t want people to have individual mobility, they want us to rely on “public transportation”. And if there is NO “public transportation” (as in my area) then their response is (literally) “You just shouldn’t be allowed to live there“. I wish I made that quote up…but I didn’t. A Democrat State Senator here in the PRK said EXACTLY that 2 years ago.

    Fact I am going to blame all this mess on CA expats. “See what happens when yet let a bunch of ferneiers in!”

    As it is we now have a water emergency being declared for those who are serviced by Arlington Water District. Evidently some asshat triggered a rush for people to fill their tubs with water, etc. Hold on a sec need to turn off the tap …

    On TX wind energy, a quote from Instapundit
    Just last week, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott proudly accepted something called the Wind Leadership Award, given with gratitude by Tri Global Energy, a company getting rich from green energy. So it was all working great until the day it got cold outside. The windmills failed like the silly fashion accessories they are, and people in Texas died.

    Imagine what wind energy would be like in Michigan, where we have three months like the last week you have experienced.

    Also, since Eastern Michigan is second to Seattle in the most overcast days (Great Lakes effect) solar power isn’t the answer either.

    Sometimes it’s good not to win awards.

    As to Texas,

    IP is correct. Lived here since ’87. This is only the second time living in this great State that I have experienced snow being on the ground more than 72hrs. Infrastructure here is designed for heat not cold. The average winter temperature is 50-55F for all zone 6-8 regions.

    The other is economic. TXU who is the major power producer is in technical bankruptcy. Being in that state curtails certain business considerations, like say power plant expansion. The nuclear facility they own is platted for up to 4 reactors onsite, but alas cannot. Oncor good as they are does run a tight ship as a outside plant distributor. They can’t justify severe weather provisions other than planned overtime.

    Windmills in West Texas are keeping some farms alive. But the more I read up on the monsters there are all sorts of downsides. One of which is those turbine blades have a much shorter life than they expected.

    Something will have to be done. If all the high tech that is supposed to arrive does, that is power demands that need to be dealt with. Still it is better than Germany with all their solar panels covered in snow. 🙂

    PS: According to PowerOutage.us Tarrant Co has only 19% of customers without power. That down from 44% 2 days ago. There are still rolling blackouts in the area.

    Shame about Rush, but all knew he was on a short leash. Still the radio industry ought to go silent for a moment nationwide in his honor. He single handedly saved them from oblivion. Without the surge of talk radio most stations would have long closed. Guys like Hanity would still be doing construction.

    It was 61 degrees and balmy here in Eastern NC yesterday. That being said , the collision of cold air and the warm air off the Gulf Stream spawned a high-end F3 tornado 100 miles to the south. It plowed through an upscale golf community killing three, injuring 10, and severely damaging 50 houses.

    PRP brought up an interesting point about CEOs buying BTC. That could be a two edged sword. First it can bolster valuations as BTC rises. That it is probably better than using debt to do stock buybacks. Second, being fairly liquid it does provide so level of flexibility for the CFO. But I still have some reservations. As an investor are you buying a stock as a proxy for BTC or the performance of the underlying company? If you want to play BTC why not go with something like BLOK or KOIN? (no endorsement)

    Jim – this reminds me of when Chicago (City Government) came out against Walmart and was opposed to them building a Super Walmart in Chicago. What did Walmart do – built it just outside the city limits.

    Walmart did the same thing here in Columbus. Got a bunch of blow back about building on this one tract of land in Columbus (part of it was a wetland). The leftists were against it because of the land BUT also because it was Big Bad Walmart.

    What did Walmart do, build it outside the city limits in a suburb. Like Chicago, lost a tax revenue source (land & wages).

    Tebow is 33 and is married now. There was no minor league baseball last year and there may not be any this year. Without fans in the stands, there is no income, just expenses – MLB covers the players’ salaries, but there’s the cost of busses (some airfare for AAA), hotel rooms, stadium lighting, etc.

    I doubt we have heard the last of Mr. Tebow. Don’t be surprised if he runs for office.

    The lack of fans in the stands has impacted major league sports. The NHL borrowed $1-billion. $50+ tickets, $5 hot dogs and sodas and $10 beers covers a lot of costs.

    Bc3b: “I think the Golden Age of sports has ended”

    Certainly the “Golden” part. Pro sports cannot maintain the astronomical salaries without fans and TV revenues. And they can’t get the fans back as long as they demand the fans debase themselves in the name of “Wokeness”.

    Before services started in church on the day of the Super Bowl, one of our congregation mentioned he and his wife were looking forward to watching the game. EVERYONE in earshot did a collective: HUH???. He was embarrassed, and quickly added they were originally from New England, and had always been Tom Brady fans. No one else, that I know of, has watched a minute of pro sports, of any kind, all year long.

    Along with the Golden Age of sports dying, the “Golden Age of Neutral Topics” has died. There is literally NO topic remaining that the Left has not co-opted into a toxic soup of “Wokeness”. I guess when your society is no longer “civil”, it’s time for a Civil War.

    “”Some equipment in some nuclear plants in Texas has not been hardened for extreme cold weather because there was never a need for this.””
    —-

    You know if we were talking several days below 0 I could maybe understand better that it wasn’t factored into the design of some components and systems based on location when it was built and that as long as texas has existed by that name, esp southern texas, has never seen such temps or anything close. But that they couldn’t even deal with teens is surprising.

    I would have expected that any nuclear plant on the planet would at least be designed with a basic 0-110d ambient in mind and require all associated gear to match. Of course those in warmer climates planning more on higher end like 135 extremes, and those in colder planning for significantly colder like -80, the latter of which I presume probably radically changes the design of a site\plant.

    65,

    Consider, many nuke plants are just cookie cutter. Somebody like GE designs a plant and get it thru regulatory approval they would be loathe to change the design and have to get the design approved again. Think tract housing. The thing that changes is what is required for the site design to support the same physical plant. If that is the case, someone like a GE would probably have a design that would fit a broad range of conditions like we are experiencing.

    So maybe the operator is more at fault than the design team???

    I would be stunned if our enemies (foreign & domestic) didn’t already know how fragile our electric grid and water supply systems are…but Texas just demonstrated that to the world.

    The PRK wants to ban wood-burning stoves in this (alleged) State…but us folks in mountains are the only ones who don’t freeze when the power goes out. We only run our generator for a bit each day to keep food cold, and check news. Otherwise its candles and firewood. And if the propane runs out then we can simply cook atop the wood burning stove.

    p.s. I finished my extra shelving in the “basement” (really just the area below the house, but it stays a constant 40-50 degrees pretty much all year long). Now to finish stocking it over the next two months…and trying out recipes using dried ingredients (beans, vegetables, etc).

    The only NHL games I have watched this year are Dallas Stars games with Ty Dellandrea, who went straight from the Flint Firebirds (junior hockey) to the Dallas Stars. I watched him play for the Firebirds for four years – fantastic talent and a really good kid.

    Two points:

    1 why does the map include New Mexico, Virginia and Maryland but not Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania (all of which Trump won in 2016 and likely won in 2020)?

    2. By picking up Alberta and Saskatchewan we’d be gaining three CFL teams – Saskatchewan Rough Riders, Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Eskimos. CFL football is great – fields so wide they stretch into the next county, 12 men on each side if the ball, three downs and lots of passing, no illegal procedure or fair catches and the “rouge” a single point if your opponents can’t run the ball out of the end zone on a punt or missed field goal attempt.

    And they can’t get the fans back as long as they demand the fans debase themselves in the name of “Wokeness”.

    I don’t believe the players will allow the leagues to ever back away from “Wokeness”. The owners can now stew in their juices they themselves created.

    the goal of our wannabe Global Masters, is a vastly DE-populated planet, with a small number of “Elites” served by a manageable number of “Proles”. In the original ‘Agenda 21’ they put the number at less than 1 billion (there are currently 7 billion people on Earth). In their updated report they don’t put a number in…but it is likely the same.

    One doctor has indicated that further study is needed on the mRNA vaccines, since he indicated they “could” cause women to not be able to bear children (it would, he posited, affect the ability of a women’s body to carry a child to term).

    “Royce Pierce told Newsweek he owes electric company, Griddy, $8,162.73 for his electricity usage this month. He said that’s a massive increase from his usual $387 bill. ”

    Makes sense. I heard the going rate of charging a tesla last week was about a $1000 dollars a charge.

    So if you car held 14 gallons of gas, that would be like paying 71 dollars a gallon to fill the car.

    Jim, yeah that is a good article, but IMHO it doesn’t go far enough because it leaves out means and methods to starve the tax collectors. The first method being: BARTER. When buying local and/ or using local services people should always try to barter for those goods or services. Offer firewood in exchange for car repair, offer home repair/ maintenance in exchange for locally grown crops, etc.

    I heard Yanet Yellen released a plan for the TGA fund although can’t find a link to it. Mnuchin has a 1.6 trillion dollar war chest that he wanted to spend in August but Pelosi blocked everything to make sure he had nothing to spend it on.

    Yellen is planning on releasing 800 billion into the economy in the next month from the TGA followed by the remaining 800 billion through the end of the June.

    JR, 106, yes the Gab proposal is a great start. Besides what you mention as a shortcoming, there is also the question of “what if we are not allowed to leave?”.
    In that case the question of armed resistance arises.
    Also, I think Mr Torba is more open to Left Populists than I am, still dubious if they will break to side of freedom or to gov’t support.

    But I like that it is a good starting plan that most everyone can buy into and most are already embarked on. Stuff like move from big banks to your local Credit Union. Reducing use of Amazon. Cut the cable to gov’t AgitProp. Get on Signal and ProtonMail and off gmail. Learn about BitCoin. Don’t buy from companies who hate you. Get out of the schools.

    Biden wants to blow another 1.9 trillion on stimulus, and then they are already talking about starting price tag on infrastructure as 3 trillion. Probably too many pessimists about the current market.

    A trillion here, a trillion there and pretty soon we’re talking real money.

    “what if we are not allowed to leave?”

    The Troubles begin my friend. The economic realignment first. Insurrection second. A force of ~3000 Irish nationalists kept a good chunk of the British Army encamped in that area for some 30 years. The Brits finally gave up. There are men, young and old alike trained by the best the US had/have that can train others in 5 and 10s. Not quite civil war, but makes large swaths of the country untenable to the opposition.

    PRP are we still expecting a BTC pullback? Or are so many flocking to it that it won’t really fall for the next few months?

    Not only get rich quick “Dot Com” style individuals.
    I was impressed with the YouTube you posted that predicted a mounting sequence of corporate entry depending on how long it takes to satisfy regulatory burden. Pensions would come last. Corporate cash much sooner. Banks after corporations and so on.

    drdog: “Not quite civil war, but makes large swaths of the country untenable to the opposition.”

    AND, those “large swaths of the country” grow the food, pump the oil & gas, and have all the major transportation arteries running through them. When the government has to seize the farms, oil fields and use military convoys to get supplies into the cities we will have become Venezuela.

    And what did Venezuela do BEFORE they did all those things?? They disarmed the people.

    No matter which road to ‘1984’ the Left chooses it ALWAYS starts with disarming the populace.
