  • Nancy Pelosi is Grubering The American Electorate on Impeachment

    Several years ago the architect of Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber, admitted on camera the Democrats who were assembling healthcare legislation were relying upon the stupidity of the American voter. Fast forward to House Nancy Pelosi in 2019 and her official impeachment inquiry by decree; shes doing the exact same thing. Speaker Pelosi, working through a carefully constructed political dynamic assembled by the hired staff from the Lawfare alliance, has sold her constituency on an impeachment process that structurally doesnt exist. Speaker Nancy Pelosi could never succeed in the scheme were she not assisted by a compliant media.
  • Americans fear climate change - and the cost of figuring it out (only 11.29 years left)

    Although the wealthy can and should be expected to make larger sacrifices than the middle class, it's vanishingly unlikely that any plan serious enough to slow global warming will leave the bulk of Americans financially untouched. But if Americans are going to be asked to engage in a war on climate change, they should understand the material and economic sacrifices that will be required of them. The best way to do this is to look at an ambitious, well-crafted climate plan like the one put forward by Washington Governor Jay Inslee. **SNIP** Much of this could be financed with taxes...

    Tax credits are a great way to stimulate purchases or participation, and in the politicians mind, they often take precedence over affordability measures that would benefit broader swathes of society. That being said, theyre here to say unless youre referring to the slowly vanishing federal EV tax credit. Automakers like Tesla and General Motors are already watching their $7,500 credits halve, then halve again, after surpassing the 200,000-vehicle threshold that starts the countdown to a credit phase-out. Now, the Treasury Department is claiming some recipients of the eco stimulus shouldnt have received it in the first place. According to Bloomberg...

    As the firestorm over President Trumps July 25 call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky continues to consume the news cycle, the Trump administration has taken new action into a controversy that played a central role in the 2016 election: the Hillary Clinton private email server scandal.

    When it comes to combating climate change, a lot of people who talk the talk dont actually walk the walk, particularly if it means traveling on foot instead of by car. While Americans are willing to make convenient changes to reduce the carbon emissions that scientists say are driving climate change and creating unpredictable weather patterns, they resist when faced with inconvenience, according to the results of a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. About nine in 10 Americans said they often or always turn off lights when theyre not needed, according to the poll....

Dehydration also increases the likelihood of kidney harm or kidney stones, putting those with kidney disease at greater risk of weather-related harm. Plants are producing more pollen because of increased levels of carbon monoxide in the air, prolonging allergy season. Increased carbon dioxide reduces nutrients in the plants we eat.
