  • Fetterman defends 'reasonable' border talks as fellow Dems fume

    The Pennsylvania progressive's comments follow his staunch support for Israel's war in Gaza, which has also befuddled some of his typical allies on the left. As stalled immigration negotiations imperil U.S. aid to Ukraine and Israel, Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) is blaming not only Republicans but also members of his own party for what he described as a reflexive political resistance to a border security deal. “I hope Democrats can understand that it isn’t xenophobic to be concerned about the border,” Fetterman said in an interview. “It’s a reasonable conversation, and Democrats should engage.” Fetterman, a progressive favorite, urged Democrats...
  • Two of NM’s three U.S. reps. refuse to vote to condemn antisemitism

    The Piñon Post ^ | December 6, 2023 | Piñon Post staff
    Two out of New Mexico’s three congressional representatives refused to vote to condemn and denounce “the drastic rise of antisemitism in the United States and around the world,” with Congresswoman Melanie Stansbury (D-NM-01) being the only member of the delegation to vote for the measure. The measure read that the U.S. House “strongly condemns and denounces all instances of antisemitism occurring in the United States and globally; (2) reaffirms and reiterates its strong support for the Jewish community at home and abroad; (3) calls on elected officials and world leaders to condemn and fight all forms of domestic and global...

    The Albuquerque Journal ^ | December 6, 2023 | Albuquerque Journal Editorial Board
    For those who don’t believe in a bureaucratic deep state, look no further than the outrageous conduct this week of the Albuquerque-Bernalillo County Air Quality Control Board. Just who do these people think they are? Despite the majority of the air board being publicly fired Monday night by the Albuquerque City Council, the unelected air board is merrily moving along this week with a proposed regulation that advocates consider the “holy grail of environmental justice organizing,” but which business leaders consider a job-killer, military folks consider a national security threat and many others simply consider environmental extremism. The so-called Health,...

    Just The News ^ | Published: December 5, 2023 11:00pm | By Kevin Killough
    Proterra, which President Joe Biden once said was "making me look good," sold hundreds of electric buses to municipalities across North America. Every transit district Just The News spoke with, except one, has inoperable buses awaiting repairs. Across the country, towns and cities of various sizes envisioned an electrified public transit system that could shuttle residents with vehicles that produced no carbon-filled exhaust. Many of those communities purchased buses from Silicon Valley-based Proterra, which was able to produce 550 buses over its 19-year existence before it went bankrupt in August. The company announced last month it had concluded auctions as...
  • Nolte: Another Conspiracy Theory Proven True — Cosmopolitan Admits Abortion Is Satanic

    12/04/2023 6:59:05 PM PST · by MNDude · 7 replies
    Far-left Cosmopolitan magazine has put us conspiracy theorists out of business by confirming what we already knew: abortion is satanic. The headline reads: “So How Does a Satanic Abortion Ceremony Even Work?” The sub-headline reads in part: “Patients of all faiths are welcome at Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Abortion Clinic in New Mexico. Along with medical counsel TST [The Satanic Temple] offers free ceremonial support to everyone.” That’s a real thing, the “Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Abortion Clinic.” The “joke” is that Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito’s Catholic mother was pro-abortion, even though she wasn’t. For decades, we were told...

    The life-taking act of abortion is being promoted by women’s fashion magazine Cosmo, which comes as no surprise to many, but a new article went much darker by praising Satanists and their twisted ritual women chant when they kill the unborn. The article focuses on the New Mexico-based Satanic Temple and its members who joined the abortion business by opening their own online abortion clinic. Using mail delivery, the clinic helps women obtain abortion pills by prescription in the abortion-friendly state.
  • Dem anti-gun law not targeting the main way youth are getting guns (New Mexico)

    The Piñon Post ^ | November 28, 2023 | Piñon Post staff
    In recent times, the issue of guns has garnered widespread attention across the state, driven by growing concerns about the potential for increased violence, particularly through shootings. Recently, in Albuquerque, a 15-year-old fired off a gun at Coronado Mall. Democrats rammed through an extreme anti-gun bill last legislative session, making parents and guardians felons if a minor got access to their firearms and caused great bodily harm or death with them. But underaged offenders aren’t necessarily getting guns from parents who forget to lock their gun safes. Kyle Hartsock, a commander with the Albuquerque Police Department, sheds light on a...
  • All-Dem NM Supreme Court upholds Dems’ gerrymandered ‘Frankenmap’

    The Piñon Post ^ | November 27, 2023 | Piñon Post staff
    In an unsurprising turn of events, the all-Democrat New Mexico Supreme Court upheld New Mexico’s extremely gerrymandered congressional map, dubbed by many as the “Frankenmap.” The Court dismissed claims by the GOP that it favored Democrats excessively. The lawsuit, filed by New Mexico Republicans, argued that the state legislature’s redrawing of the map amounted to a Democratic gerrymander, violating the state’s constitution. This redistricting occurred before the 2022 midterms, and the alterations aimed to shift the 2nd Congressional District, previously leaning Republican, toward a more Democratic profile. The contested district is currently held by Democrat Rep. Gabe Vasquez*, who secured...

    The Santa Fe New Mexican ^ | Nov 17, 2023 | Scott Wyland
    The state Environmental Improvement Board split 3-2 and the Albuquerque Bernalillo County Air Quality Control Board voted unanimously Thursday night to adopt the rule. Dubbed the Advanced Clean Cars and Trucks rule, it aligns with California's standards and is part of the larger effort to cut planet-warming greenhouse gases as well as ground-level ozone and particulates that can cause respiratory problems. The rule calls for 43% of new cars and light-duty trucks delivered to New Mexico to be electric models by 2026 and 82% by 2032. At the same time, 15% to 20% of new, heavier-duty commercial trucks delivered to...

    More electric vehicles are heading to car dealerships across New Mexico. The New Mexico Environmental Improvement Board approved a new set of regulations – commonly known as the ‘Clean Car Standards’ – in a 3-2 vote. The regulations were first developed in California and have been adopted by 19 other states including New Mexico. The new rules require car manufacturers to deliver more zero-emission vehicles to car dealerships. Starting in 2026, 43% of all new vehicle deliveries must be electric or hybrid vehicles. Only 15% of new commercial trucks must be electric. The requirements are scheduled to quickly increase each...

    Two former New Mexico State basketball players and a student manager filed a lawsuit Monday saying their teammates frequently brought guns into the locker room where they sexually assaulted players as a way of ensuring everyone on the team remained "humble." Kyle Feit, along with a teammate and student manager who did not want their names used, filed the lawsuit in district court in Las Cruces, New Mexico, against the school; its athletic director, Mario Moccia; and former coaches and players. All but Moccia were fired or left last season; Moccia received a contract extension and a raise. SNIP Feit...

    A grandmother from New Mexico was shot dead by a Los Cruces police officer who fired upon her as she attempted to speed away in her car, shocking newly-released footage shows. Teresa Gomez, 45, was killed by officer Felipe Hernandez, an eight year veteran with the force in the early hours of the morning on October 3rd, just before 5am. The cop had been speaking with Gomez who had parked her car at a housing complex with her friend, identified as Julio Garcia. Hernandez seemingly recognized Garcia from other encounters and appeared to be aware that had been previously was...

    SANTA FE — A California research team is conducting a five-year ecological study of six songbird species in northwestern New Mexico oil fields to see how sensory intrusions affect the birds’ survival, reproduction and general health. The Santa Fe New Mexican says the study by avian researchers from California Polytechnic State University will zero in on the specific impacts of noise and light pollution. As the human population swells and generates more light and sound, researchers are curious about how those multiplying stressors might compound the challenges of climate change in New Mexico’s San Juan Basin, the newspaper reported.

    New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D) reacted to the Wednesday night firearm-based attacks in Maine by calling for gun control. Grisham has been in the news recently for issuing an order banning concealed carry, even by licensed concealed carry permit holders, in larger New Mexico cities like Albuquerque. Her order banned the open carry of firearms too. She issued her order on September 8, 2023, and a U.S. District Judge blocked it on September 13, 2023. She then reworked the order, limiting the ban on concealed carry to parks and playgrounds and her order was allowed to stand.

    A 2-mile-long methane plume in New Mexico. Credit: NASA / JPL-Caltech ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Anew instrument aboard the International Space Station (ISS) has been used to identify more than 50 “super-emitters” of methane — a major step toward slashing global warming. The challenge: To combat global warming, we need to cut our greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon dioxide accounts for the majority of those emissions, and transitioning from fossil fuels to clean energy will significantly reduce those. Methane is a much less common greenhouse gas than CO2, but it’s far more potent, with each ton emitted causing 80 times as much warming in...

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered the state's National Guard to install a barrier in some parts along the Texas/New Mexico state line. Officials say guard members have been placing concertina wire in an area close to Sunland Park, New Mexico, which shares a border with El Paso, Texas. Footage shot by KVIA shows some of the fencing running along the Rio Grande. ABC News has reached out to Texas officials, who have not yet provided an estimate of how much fencing is being installed. Abbott says the barrier is meant to deter migrants who cross from Mexico into New...

    New Mexico prosecutors have announced they are filing new charges against Alec Baldwin after new evidence has emerged against the embattled Hollywood star. Baldwin will be recharged over the shooting incident that claimed the life of a cinematographer on the set of his “Rust” movie, special prosecutor Kari Morrissey said. Morrissey revealed that the charges against Baldwin would be brought before a Santa Fe grand jury in November. The accidental shooting killed 42-year-old cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza. Baldwin was holding the gun when the fatal shot was fired. However, he has claimed numerous times that he...

Lujan Grisham – who made the announcement during remarks at the New Mexico Department of Transportation's Symposium on the Future of Transportation – added that her government would pursue a plan to bolster electric vehicle (EV) tax credits in an effort to boost affordability. The executive order to force state agencies to adopt carbon-free vehicle fleets comes as Lujan Grisham continues pushing EV mandates statewide. "The fact of the matter is that consumers...

    President Joe Biden-appointed U.S. District Judge David Herrera Urias issued a decision Wednesday allowing New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham’s (D) ban on concealed carry in parks and playgrounds to remain in effect. On September 13, 2023, Breitbart News reported that Urias granted a temporary injunction against Grisham’s September 8, 2023, ban, which prohibited concealed and open carry in larger New Mexico cities like Albuquerque. The ban applied to licensed concealed carriers, too.
