  • Feds to Block Alaska Logging [semi-satire]

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 21 November 2021 | John Semmens
    The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that it has begun the process of undoing the Trump Administration's policy of allowing more logging in Alaska's rain forest. Secretary Tom Vilsack explained that "we need to keep in step with the President's desire to tamp down the economic activity that contributes to climate change. We can't let the destruction of the energy sector bear the whole weight of the transition to a simpler way of life." Lumber prices have been skyrocketing even with the increased logging allowed under the Trump rules. Choking off this supply will put further upward pressure on industries...
  • Grocer: ‘Out of 145 orders, only 41 were delivered’ – Thanksgiving shortages and prices spikes ‘should’ awaken Americans that trusted the MSM lies

    11/09/2021 5:20:12 PM PST · by Roman_War_Criminal · 18 replies ^ | 11/6/21 | Susan Duclos
    With weather issues, supply chain breakdowns, pandemic unemployment worsened by overreaching vax mandates as first responders are put on unpaid leave, forcing firehouses to close, mass exodus of police, gas prices, food price spikes, all of which are contributing to shortages seen from grocery stores to retail shops, we are looking at a disastrous holiday season, which includes Thanksgiving and Christmas. Cities can burn for all these people care, as first responders are once again protecting Americans by standing up for all of our rights, which unfortunately has caused them to walk away until liberal leaders understand, the first responders...

    A global energy crunch is creating pain for people struggling to fill their tanks and heat their homes, as well as roiling the utility industry’s plans to change its mix of generation and complicating the Biden administration’s plans to tackle climate change. The ripple effects of a surge in natural gas prices include a spike in coal use and emissions that counter clean energy targets. High fossil fuel prices also are translating into high prices and a supply crunch for key minerals like silicon used in clean energy projects. On a call with investors yesterday, a Tesla Inc. executive said...

  • VANITY-Local Woke Farmer Removed BLM Sign

    09/03/2021 2:47:34 AM PDT · by AbolishCSEU · 24 replies
    Just noticed a local farmer with a roadside stand here in upstate NY has removed his prominently placed Marxist signs. He had them up the entire time during President Trump's term: Black Lives Matter, "In Our America Love Trumps Hate, There Is No Such Thing As An Illegal Human..." I noticed his "Endless War" sign any down shortly after realizing that Prez Trump had the most peaceful foreign policy than Demonrat administrations. When the fraudulent 2020 election took place, he immediately put up a hand written sign "You're Fired." This area is mostly conservative so his woke "organic" veg and...

  • Hunger is not far away! Grasshoppers invade western US in largest swarms in 35 years, plaguing farmers and ranchers

    SS ^ | 7/7/21 | SS
    A massive population of grasshoppers is proliferating in the sweltering American west, where a deep drought has made for ideal conditions for grasshopper eggs to hatch and survive into adulthood. “I can only describe grasshoppers in expletives,” said Richard Nicholson, a cattle rancher in Fort Klamath, a small community in southern Oregon, who once recalled seeing grasshopper bands eat 1,000 acres a day and cover the ground like snow. The insects cause innumerable headaches for farmers and ranchers, competing with cattle for tough-to-find wild forage and costing tens of thousands of dollars in lost crops and associated costs. “They are...

    The Economic Collapse ^ | July 6, 2021 | Michael Snyder
    For decades, Americans have not needed to be concerned about food prices. Yes, prices would always go up by a little bit each year, but in general we have been extremely blessed for a very long time. Our supermarkets have always been packed with food, and we could always count on the fact that prices would be about the same a month or two down the road. Unfortunately, things are now changing, and not in a good way. A massive wave of inflation has hit agricultural commodities, and food producers have felt forced to pass those cost increases along to...
  • Food Is Freedom: How Washington’s Food Subsidies Have Helped Make Americans Fat and Sick

    05/14/2021 7:06:21 PM PDT · by ammodotcom · 26 replies ^ | 5/14/2021 | Sam Jacobs
    Farm subsidies are perhaps the ultimate, but secret, third rail of American politics. While entitlements are discussed out in the open, farm subsidies are rarely talked about – even though they are the most expensive subsidy Washington doles out. All told, the U.S. government spends $20 billion annually on farm subsidies, with approximately 39 percent of all farms receiving some sort of subsidy. For comparison, the oil industry gets about $4.6 billion annually and annual housing subsidies total another $15 billion. A significant portion of this $20 billion goes not to your local family farm, but to Big Aggie. (Note...
  • There are way too many car dealerships with Colonial in the name.

    05/13/2021 6:16:50 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 20 replies
    Car dealerships abound in our nation. People are constantly buying cars. What I do not understand however is why so many of them have "Colonial" in their name. For example, we have Colonial Subaru in Danbury, Connecticut. (#1 Volume Subaru dealer in all of Connecticut) Then you got Colonial Ford in Plymouth, Massachusetts, should you wish to purchase one of those F-150 pickups with 11 cupholders and a place for your dog to sit in the back. If you want to have one of those little Hondas, you can go to the Colonial Honda in South Chesterfield, Virginia. They will...
  • WATCH: 5 Doctor Panel Issues Warning, Claim COVID Vaccines Being Used As ‘Bioweapons’

    In a video that is gaining a massive amount of traction, two doctors, Dr. Sherri Tenpenny and Dr. Larry Palevsky, host a round table discussion called “Critical Thinking” with three special guests, Dr. Carrie Madej, Dr. Christiane Northrup, and Dr. Lee Merritt, where they discuss, what they believe, are extreme dangers of “weaponized” COVID-19 vaccines. The topic at hand is the impact of the experimental COVID injections on women’s health. This is especially true for people who have chosen not to receive the experimental COVID-19 vaccine but have been exposed to those who have, and have contracted infections that appear...

    Something must be really worrying Democrats. There appears to be a full-court press effort to delay and defer any and every effort to audit Maricopa County's election results. Officials in Arizona's Maricopa County are withholding materials subpoenaed by the state legislature as part of its audit of the county's 2020 election, claiming that surrendering them would constitute a security risk for both law enforcement and federal agencies.

    Democrats are having flashbacks of what happened with the late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but this time it is with current Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. Many Democrat politicians have been tiptoeing around his feelings and not directly asking him to retire because they are frightened that it may look too political. But what they want is a new, young liberal justice on the court in the place of the 82-year-old justice, CNN reported.

    Two Major League Baseball teams, the New York Yankees and New York Mets, are getting prepared to, kind of, bring their games back to normal. But the price of bringing the games back to somewhat normal is precisely what many people were frightened of to begin with, CBS New York reported. Their stadiums, Yankee Stadium and Citi Field respectively, will have separate seating for vaccinated and non-vaccinated people. In the vaccinated section, fans will not have to socially distance but will still, ridiculously, have to wear masks even after the Centers For Disease Control said masks were not needed outside.

    A prominent Democrat is sounding the alarm about Joe Biden's handling of the border crisis. Texas Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar is accusing the Biden administration of misleading the public about the purported success of its immigration policies. The Department of Homeland Security released photos of a migrant processing facility in the border town of Donna, Texas, on Tuesday. The photos showed sparsely populated plastic cages where crowds of children had been kept, suggesting that the Biden administration is effectively dealing with the crisis-level flood of illegal immigrant children that have come into the U.S. in recent months.

    Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have described themselves as devout Catholics, a description enthusiastically repeated by his press secretary and the media. But now Pelosi's hometown bishop is taking a not-so-subtle jab at her and Biden's abortion advocacy, arguing that self-identified Catholics should refrain from publicly promoting the practice or face potential exclusion from Holy Communion. "If you find that you are unwilling or unable to abandon your advocacy for abortion, you should not come forward to receive Holy Communion," said Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone in a pastoral letter.

    Democrats are very worried about the election audit taking place in Arizona. The Biden Department of Justice has sent a letter to Arizona Senate President Karen Fann taking issue with Maricopa County's forensic audit of the 2020 election. The letter is from Pamela Karlan, the principal deputy assistant attorney general of the Civil Rights Division. Karlan writes to Fann that the DOJ is taking issue with two main parts of the forensic audit.

    The Biden Administration's American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 provides loan forgiveness of up to 120% (i.e., a borrower can get 20% more than they received from the federal government during the pandemic) to farmers who are Black, American Indian or Alaskan native, Hispanic or Latino, and Asian American or Pacific Islander. Whites aren't eligible for this program. Plaintiffs from Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota and Ohio contend that using race to determine who receives the benefits of a program aimed at aiding farmers hurt by the economic shutdowns imposed in the effort to combat COVID is "unconstitutional." President and General...
