  • Even Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg Can’t Find a Reliable EV Charger

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | September 13, 2023 | Jennifer hiller
    America’s electric-vehicle drivers are increasingly unhappy with public charging, as problems that include glitchy or inoperable equipment seem to be getting worse, not better. Now the U.S. government plans to launch a $100 million effort to try to tackle the reliability issue and make public charging less annoying and more consistent. The funding aims to repair and replace thousands of old or out-of-commission chargers that are contributing to a roll-of-the-dice sensation among EV drivers, who never know what they might find. Around one in five attempts at charging at a public station outside of the Tesla network is a bust,...
  • Buttigieg’s ‘Equity’ Team Seeks to End ‘Racist’ Private Car Ownership: ‘All Cars Are Bad’

    Democrat President Joe Biden’s “woke” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has formed a team of “equity experts” that seeks to end private car ownership. Buttigieg has been busy allocating tax dollars to appoint a group of “leading experts” to advise him on “transportation equity.” Several members of Buttigieg’s Marxist “equity” team argue that cars cause “climate change” and “promote racism” and therefore should be phased out. The target is not just traditional gas-powered vehicles, however, as the “experts” insist that “all cars are bad,” including EVs.

    No gas stoves, no gas-powered cars, and no beer are just a few things the Biden Administration has put the kibosh on. The Democrat-controlled White House is now fear-mongering Americans into believing all cars cause climate change and promote racism and should, therefore, be banned. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg appointed an Obama-era group made up of 24 "leading experts" to advise him on "transportation equity," claiming the privilege of owning a car ignites "systemic racism" and should be banned because of their negative impact on the environment. Members of the Advisory Committee on Transportation Equity include "spatial policy scholar" Andrea...

    Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg has appointed 24 new members to his Advisory Committee on Transportation Equity. "Cars are the weal link in our transportation system," he explained. "They are a major contributor to global warming and perpetuate systemic racism. Equity requires that they be phased out and replaced with superior alternatives." The Secretary hastened to clarify that "electric vehicles (EVs) are a bridge to an automobile future, not a permanent alternative. Let's face it, EVs aren't that great. They cost more to own and operate, are less convenient and versatile than gasoline-fueled vehicles, and are not especially environmentally friendly. The...

    In an interview this week, Viktor Shokin, the Ukraine prosecutor who was investigating Burisma--the firm that employed Hunter Biden--asked "why isn't the fact that Joe Biden bragged he threatened to withhold $1 billion in US aid to Ukraine unless I was fired evidence of his corruption? Is that not paying a bribe for my dismissal?" Presidential Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre pointed out that "President Biden was very clear that his threat to withhold the billion dollars in aid had the full backing of President Obama. The threat to withhold federal aid in order to extort desired behavior is a presidential...

    The current issue of Wired magazine carries an interview with our wonderboy secretary of transportation, Pete Buttigieg. And here’s the long introduction to the Q & A portion, and by god this should be read aloud at cocktail parties for the rest of the year as it is comedy gold: THE CURIOUS MIND of Pete Buttigieg holds much of its functionality in reserve. Even as he discusses railroads and airlines, down to the pointillist data that is his current stock-in-trade, the US secretary of transportation comes off like a Mensa black card holder who might have a secret Go habit...

    A Democratic former mayor pleaded guilty to 140 charges for child porn possession and distribution. Patrick Wojahn—who served for nearly eight years as mayor of College Park, Md., before his arrest and resignation in March—pleaded guilty to 60 counts of distribution of child pornography, 40 counts of possession of child pornography with the intention to distribute, and 40 counts of possession of child pornography. Wojahn, who listed his pronouns in his Twitter bio, said in his resignation letter that he was stepping down to address his "mental health." The ex-mayor also has connections to the Biden administration. Wojahn in a...

    It turns out that the driving range of a fully-charged electric vehicle (EV) is shorter than advertised. The exaggerated range estimates are an artifact of testing procedures specified by the Environmental Protection Agency. Customers who have complained to the manufacturers have typically been rebuffed by the very useful "mileages may vary" escape clause. Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm emphasized that "the key thing is that these EVs burn no gasoline. Given their massive positive contribution to the reduction of fuel consumption, the President's draw down of our Strategic Petroleum Reserve doesn't look as dangerous or stupid as the Republicans have...

    A group of 10 House Republicans helped Democrats sink a bill that would have forced Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg to report his flight records on government-owned jets. The bill — introduced by Rep. Mary Miller, R-Ill., as an amendment to Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reauthorization legislation — was defeated in a narrow 219-216 vote late Wednesday. According to the roll call, 10 Republicans voted against (snip) "We are disappointed that Representative Miller’s important amendment failed," Caitlin Sutherland, the executive director for watchdog group Americans for Public Trust (APT), told Fox News Digital.

    On Friday’s broadcast of CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg responded to a question on whether the Biden administration can claim credit for improvements in inflation numbers after previously blaming other factors like Russia and “Putin’s price hike” by stating that “we responded with the recipe of the things that we were doing” while acknowledging there are “a lot of things that go into this.” Co-host Joe Kernen asked, “[I]nflation, it’s coming down now, and the administration and President Biden [are] going to take credit for it coming down. My only question is, whenever we talked about it in...

    Researchers found acrolein — a chemical toxin — at levels six times higher than normal near the site of the East Palestine, Ohio, train derailment weeks after public officials told residents it was safe to return to their homes. Nearly 5,000 residents of East Palestine evacuated following the February 3 train derailment after Northfolk Southern officials decided to burn vinyl chloride from five tanker cars in an attempt to prevent an explosion, PBS reported. A team of scientists from Carnegie Mellon and Texas A & M Universities sent a van three weeks after the train derailment to search for harmful...

    Spanish leader Teresa Ribera went viral after she pulled a fake bike ride to a climate conference held by the European Union, a move reminiscent of U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s 2021 bike stunt. Video surfaced on social media on Tuesday from the EU 2023 ES conference held in Madrid, Spain, that showed Ribera riding a bike to the conference. However, now Ribera is facing a backlash after it was revealed as nothing but reportedly a PR stunt, TimesNowNews reported. According to information provided to the outlet, Ribera reportedly took a private jet and chauffeured cars to the conference —...

    Openly gay Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Sunday accused Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis of using “oiled-up shirtless bodybuilders’’ to try to prove his masculinity in an ad attacking Donald Trump. The controversial clip features Trump, who is vying against DeSantis for the GOP presidential nomination, crowing in 2016 that he would “do everything in my power to protect our LGBTQ citizens” — as multiple images of DeSantis and shredded bare-chested men are interspersed between the perceived dig and others targeting the former president.

    President Biden is “very focused on details,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg insisted — after the 80-year-old commander in chief confused Ukraine and Iraq twice in 12 hours. The Cabinet member defended Biden after being asked, “What do you say to people who are concerned about his age, and slip-ups like the one he had today?” by CNN host Kaitlan Collins. “Well, what I’d say is I wish you could be in a room with him, the way I often am, seeing how he is simultaneously focused, on a big-picture vision, and very focused on details,” Buttigieg said. “Look, this is...

    In a speech to the League of Conservation Voters, President Biden announced "plans to build a railroad from the Pacific all the way across the Indian Ocean. This all-electric train will provide a nonpolluting alternative to fossil-fueled air and sea transport." Biden rebuffed skeptics by pointing out that "people said the California bullet train could never be built, but it's under construction right now. This triumph of modern engineering can be replicated around the world. Two of the best and brightest Americans will make sure this happens.

    The effort to mandate an all-electric vehicle (EV) fleet is founded on the idea that eliminating tailpipe emissions of CO2 will be beneficial to the environment. The fact that most of the electricity needed to charge EVs is generated by burning fossil fuels has been largely ignored. A lesser known toxic consequence is the increased wear-and-tear on vehicle tires due to the heavier weight of EVs. Nearly 2,000 times more particle pollution is produced by tire wear than tailpipe emissions. According to the Goodyear tire manufacturer, EVs run through tires 50% faster than gasoline-powered cars. Tires contain some highly toxic...
