'Greenwash': The US Is the Only Country Actually Engaged in Economic Suicide

"Which gives We the Imposed Upon pause."


. . ."We have been told incessantly for decades the planet in its entirety faces a cataclysmic environmental crisis. And that every nation must subject its respective peoples to massive economic contractions in order to address it. Every nation must end its traditional energy use.  While continuing to massively ramp up its government spending on “green energy.” Except time and time again, it is only the United States that self-inflicts the “climate change” economic wounds.

"Which gives We the Imposed Upon pause.

"Well, welcome once again to Leftist harmonic convergence. The world’s government officials are readying themselves for private jet rides to the fabulous hotels and meals awaiting them in Glasgow, Scotland at the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26).

"Which if it were a biker rally in South Dakota it would be falsely labeled a “Super Spreader” event. '. . .  Well, one can only imagine...  

Israel's post-American strategic challenge

Israel's leaders need to wake up. Joe Biden (or, more accurately, his puppeteers) have shown an absolute willingness to stab their allies in the back and act unilaterally against their allies' best interests. This was proven unequivocally in Afghanistan, when Biden pulled out his forces without even consulting with the British and the French. Biden is an untrustworthy backstabber. If he's willing to treat the British and the French this way, you can be sure he will throw the Israelis under the b

us as well, given his longstanding antipathy toward the Jewish state. (From the comments to this post)

. . . "First, the Americans [under Democrats] are not working with Israel to block Iran from becoming a nuclear power. They are working against Israel.

"The Americans and Israelis agree that Iran is on the verge of becoming a nuclear breakout state, which can assemble nuclear weapons at will. But whereas they agree on the status of Iran’s quest for military nuclear capability, they disagree about what the response to the current state of Iran’s nuclear program should be.

"Israel’s position is that the United States should take diplomatic and economic action, and at a minimum threaten military action if Iran refuses to reinstate the limitations on its nuclear activities set out in the so-called Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA. The 2015 nuclear deal permitted Iran to enrich limited quantities of uranium to the level of 3.67 percent. Iran is currently enriching massive quantities of uranium to 60 percent — just a step away from weapons-grade.

"U.S. President Joe Biden and his advisers are unwilling to consider placing additional economic sanctions on Iran. Indeed, the administration is turning a blind eye to Iran’s export of massive quantities of oil and gas to China and other states, in breach of the sanctions. The Americans say they may be willing to consider taking diplomatic action of some form or another, but in exchange, they demand Israeli concessions to the Palestinians.". . . 

Israel’s operational and strategic incoherence stems from the government’s inability to reconcile itself to the fact of U.S. betrayal. By abandoning the United States’ longstanding opposition to Iran’s nuclear program, the Biden administration hasn’t simply dashed Israel’s hope of coordinating its efforts with Washington. It has obliterated the guiding wisdom at the foundation of Israel’s 50-year security partnership with America. That wisdom has it that America’s security partnership with Israel is the most important guarantee of Israel’s national security.

I&I/TIPP Poll Shocker: Trump Beats Biden In Presidential Poll In Every U.S. Region But One

 Issues & Insights  "When it comes to President Biden, are voters starting to have a serious case of buyers’ remorse? It sure looks that way. A new I&I/TIPP Poll limited to those who voted in the 2020 election shows former President Donald Trump sharply narrowing the gap between him and Biden and leading across most of the country if the election were held today.

"For all intents and purposes, based on current voter sentiment and the margin of error, it’s a virtual dead heat between Trump and Biden, with Trump having all the momentum.

"The data come from the October I&I/TIPP Poll of 1,308 adults was conducted online from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2 by TechnoMetrica Market Intelligence, I&I’s polling partner. The analysis for this story is based 955 Americans who voted in 2020 and revealed their 2020 vote.  The margin of error for the analysis is +/-3.3 percentage points.

"In it, we asked: “If the presidential election were held today, and the following were the candidates, for whom would you vote?” Respondents were given the choices of “Donald Trump,” “Joe Biden,” “Other,” or “Not sure.”

"Overall, Biden still leads Trump by 45% to 44%, with 6% choosing “other” and 5% saying “not sure.' ”. . . 

...Trump leads in the Midwest (45.9% vs. 44.9%), the South (45.8% vs. 44.6), and the West (42.4% vs. 39.7%).  Biden leads Trump in the Northeast 53.6% to 39.1%....  Bernie Sanders country!

Isn't this a factor? Questions About Joe Biden's Health Go Mainstream   "Just days ago, the president appeared to forget where he was, having to be saved by his wife (see Jill Biden Steps in to Save a Confused, Meandering Joe Biden). Other examples include Biden seemingly unable to control his anger at times, including with the families of slain soldiers. Past that, odd word salads and bumbling speeches have become what feels like a near-daily occurrence."...

The Cowardly Artists Who Stayed Silent

LONDON - England - The silence of cowardly artists during a time of mass censorship, cancel culture, is a disturbing commentary of our times.

The Daily Squib 

 "How we used to idolize artists when we were growing up. Here were these gods and goddesses who were above everything, they could stand up and stick their finger up with vitriol, they could shout out aloud at the injustices, they could bring forth real societal change simply with a few words in an interview or news flash.

"Artists whether musical/authors/painters/film or conceptual made sheer statements in their art. They were not afraid to voice their opinion, their dreams, their fears for what was to come. They were not afraid to question. Injustice was trodden on by these heroes as they pushed their fists in the air defiantly. This was why they were artists, it was this ‘fuck you!’ to everything wrong in society and government that made them real artists.

"Forward to 2020/21 and now there is only the sound of silence, of crickets with tumbleweed blowing across a society where heavy censorship and cancel culture is applauded.". . .

"Atlanta is still seething that Major League Baseball stripped the All-Star Game away from their beloved city this summer."

 Althouse   " 'Well, politics or not, there’s absolutely nothing MLB can do to stop Atlanta now. Atlanta will host the World Series for the first time since 1999."

"It's hard even to remember what offense Georgia committed that deserved the punishment imposed. Something un-woke? Something about voting regulations implying racism? Whatever... so now those terrible people are triumphing, and I don't think they're going to give up singing that doltish "Indian" tune while doing "the tomahawk chop."
"The only alternative is another Southern city, those cheaters in Texas.
"Ah, baseball is boring, all the Northerners sniff."

And they dare speak of the mess Donald Trump left behind...

 Psaki, Pelosi, and the lot consider us all gullible and ignorant; we have to be since we elected Democrats. TD

Hyperinflation is a term used to describe a period of excessive general price increases of everyday goods in a very short period of time.

Typically, hyperinflation sees the rate of inflation rise by 50 per cent each month - by comparison, the rate of inflation has stayed at roughly two per cent per year since 2011 - though the last 12 months have seen a 5.4 per cent hike.

Inflation was at 1% while Trump was in office. Prices were cheap, especially for gas, and Americans could afford to heat their homes, drive their cars, and buy dinner for their families.

"Not now. Buttigieg’s decision to play mom has meant that ships lie off the coast of California, the backlog to offload goods at LA growing ever larger (a good reason to buy American, mind you!). Biden’s crackdown on the energy industry means that this will be a long, cold winter for many Americans. Dramatic increases in price and shortages in availability for food, especially meat, means that many Americans are going to bed without a wholesome meal in their bellies." . . .

‘Bidenflation’ — The next thing big tech censors. They’ve already started.

   " 'Inflation has risen substantially since President Joe Biden assumed office in January, but Sean Parnell, a U.S. military vet and candidate for the U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, says that topic appears to be the next one to fall prey to social media censorship.  “Big Tech & their partisan leftwing ‘fact checkers’ don’t care about the truth, they only care about protecting Biden & the Dems,” he posted on Twitter along with a graphic showing price increases for a basket of commodities depicting a “missing context” label.". . .  Amber Athey

Joe from Scranton? More like Bogus Biden  "His presidency is a slap in the face to the working class"

I wrote last September that this characterization of the Syracuse law grad and lifelong politician was a sham: “Biden has built his career on being dishonest to working-class Americans,” I warned.Ten months into his presidency, and this has proven true. Trump may love a good show  —”stay tuned!” — but it is Joe Biden who oversees the most inauthentic administration, one that is shockingly divorced from the lives of everyday Americans. Amber Athey
