  • Biden's Oil Deal With Venezuela Is Worse Than You Think

    A week ago the Biden administration announced that it had approved an expansion of the license to Chevron so they could resume oil production in Venezuela. This was a surprise given the administration’s hostility to fossil fuels in general and oil from Venezuela in particular. ... That Biden would allow oil to flow from a socialist dictator like Nicolás Maduro isn’t shocking. The administration has made a nasty habit of dealing with dictators while leaving our friends high and dry. Such is the case with tiny Guyana, which was recently discovered to be sitting on an ocean of crude oil....
  • ‘Necessary evil’: France refires coal plant amid energy woes

    The end of France’s coal era seemed so certain last year that the operator of one of the country’s last coal-burning plants posted an upbeat educational video on YouTube titled “Let’s visit a coal plant that’s going to be destroyed!” The plant in the northeastern town of Saint-Avold indeed halted coal production as scheduled earlier this year — but not for long. This week, its workers were back at the controls, transporting coal from storage heaps and refiring furnaces, as part of emergency efforts to keep the heat and electricity on this winter. The energy crisis across Europe unleashed by...

    The White House announced yesterday that as one of the results of the G20 meeting, Indonesia is set to receive $20 billion to transition from coal to green energy. According to the press release/fact sheet, a coalition of nations all signed on to the Just Energy Transition Partnership. Those nations include “the Government of the Republic of Indonesia (GOI) and the Governments of Japan, the United States of America, Canada, Denmark, the European Union, the Federal Republic of Germany, the French Republic, Norway, the Republic of Italy, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland (together the “International...

    There are pledges and there are pledges. Some are realistic, others are not. Some are pure fantasy and are best left that way. Remember Joe Biden's pledge from 2019? “I want you to look at my eyes. I guarantee you, I guarantee you we’re going to end fossil fuels.” He repeated it recently "There is no more drilling. I haven't formed any new drilling," I guarantee you it won't happen. Were it possible, there would be no Christmas. Were it possible, you most likely would die and so would your kids. Facts are stubborn things. Joe Biden is determined to...

    “Let them eat cake,” famously attributed to Marie Antoinette by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, has become universal shorthand for a monarch’s total disregard for her famished citizens stealing and wreaking havoc in the streets to survive. World leaders are making the same faux pas this week at their opulent stay in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, for COP27, the United Nations’ climate change conference. While they eat the best food in the world and enjoy luxurious tourism opportunities, they will leave the conference telling billions of people that the only way to combat the “climate crisis” is to stop eating meat, stop production...

    Hey, so remember that time the other day when President Joe Biden promised that “we’re gonna be shutting these [coal] plants down all across America”? VIDEO AT LINK............... Remember how the following day, Biden’s press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre attempted — quite poorly — to walk Biden’s remarks back? She claimed that his remarks had “been twisted” by people with bad intentions, and that he was really and truly and sincerely sorry if anyone took his comments to mean that he was promising to shut down coal plants when he said he’d shut down coal plants. “I apologize if you were...

    President Joe Biden (D) snapped at a young woman who attended a political rally that he hosted on Sunday at Sarah Lawrence College in New York for gubernatorial candidate Kathy Hochul. “No more drilling. There is no more drilling,” Biden snapped at a young woman in the crowd. “I haven’t formed any new drilling.” “There are at least five more years of offshore drilling,” the woman shouted back. “— in the Atlantic or the Pacific but in the Antarctic and off the gulf of New Mexico.” “That was before I was president,” Biden responded. “We’re trying to work on that...

    Less than a week from a "bloodbath" midterm for Democrats, you'd think Joe BIden would be on his best behavior as he stumps for votes across the country.Fat chance, Fat. Joe Biden's gaffe spout has been turned to 11, vowing as he did in California to put the coal industry out of business, just as Pennsylvania goes to the polls:"No one is building new coal plants because they can’t rely on it. Even if they have all the coal guaranteed for the rest of the existence of the plant," Biden said. "So it's going to become a wind generation," Biden...

    Mocking the crowd for Democrat rallies in Pennsylvania and hailing his own, former President Donald Trump warned the commonwealth is being destroyed by radical left policies....Trump began by promising to end House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's political career and stripping away the power of President Joe Biden and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer."Under Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, and the radical Democrat Congress, your commonwealth is being totally destroyed," Trump told the crowd. "Our country is being destroyed.

    A joke was going around that President Joe Biden visiting Pennsylvania could only help candidate John Fetterman lose. As it turns out, Biden’s trip to California might hurt Democrats with Pennsylvania voters more than appearing in the Keystone State did. As PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr reported yesterday, Biden decided to tell voters that his administration would be shutting down coal plants all across America and transitioning to wind and solar power during an unnecessary trip to California. Last I checked, no one will get beyond the margin of cheating to beat Gavin Newsom. Townhall.com @townhallcom · Follow BIDEN ON...

    Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) slammed President Biden for making “offensive and disgusting” comments about shutting down coal plants at an event in California on Friday. Biden gave remarks at the corporate headquarters of Viasat, a global communications company, to promote the CHIPS and Science Act, which he signed into law in August to provide $50 billion in incentives to the domestic manufacturing of semiconductors. Biden said that generating electricity from wind and solar energy is cheaper than generating it from coal and oil. He said people are not building new coal plants because they cannot rely on it. “We’re going...

Joe Manchin on Saturday slammed President Joe Biden for pledging to shut down America’s coal plants in a speech in California. “President Biden’s comments are not only outrageous and divorced from reality, they ignore the severe economic pain the American people are feeling because of rising energy costs,” Manchin (D-W.Va.) said in a statement just days ahead of the midterm elections. “Comments like these are the reason the American people are losing trust in President Biden. … It seems his positions change daily depending on the audience and politics of the day.” In a speech about the CHIPS...

    Nothing could better symbolize the deflating bubble of green madness that gripped Germany than the following from Lawrence Richard of Fox Business:A German energy company is dismantling a wind farm to allow for an adjacent coal mine to expand its operations, officials said.The German coal mine Garzweiler, operated by energy company RWE, admits the situation appears to be "paradoxical" — sacrificing one energy source for another — but defended the decision as necessary to strengthen supplies amid the ongoing energy crisis, Oilprice.com reported. "We realize this comes across as paradoxical," RWE spokesperson Guido Steffen said in a statement. "But that...

    A wind farm in Germany is being demolished to make room for a coal mine expansion. German energy giant RWE is tearing down wind turbines to expand a neighboring coal mine in an effort to deal with the country's energy crisis. The area of the wind farm near the small town of Lützerath will be used to expand the Garzweiler open pit mine in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia. The wind farm features eight wind turbines. One wind turbine was dismantled last week, two more are scheduled to be deconstructed some time next year, and the final five will be...

    I should probably give our readers a moment to double-check and ensure that you didn’t inadvertently wander into an article from the Babylon Bee or The Onion. But the title of the article stands as is and it’s legitimate. German energy company RWE operates several different types of power generation operations in the state of North-Rhine Westphalia. At one location, they have a large lignite coal mine and a wind turbine farm located side by side. (A rather startling juxtaposition given the divisive nature of the ongoing green energy debate.) But some changes are coming, and not the sort that...

Mastriano is asking Pennsylvanians to volunteer for his campaign in the hopes that he can beat his Democratic challenger Attorney General Josh Shapiro next month. Former attorney general Ernie Preate was a guest speaker and predicts Republicans will be victorious November 8th including in Harrisburg. “Mark my words, there is a red wave coming,” said Preate. Preate was one of several speakers at Mastriano's campaign event at the Fiorelli Banquet and Conference Center in Peckville...
