  • Biden promises America will be the 'largest single country donor' of humanitarian assistance and vows to 'climate proof' the world in UN General Assembly address

    resident Joe Biden pledged that the U.S would remain the 'largest single country donor' of humanitarian assistance and vowed to help 'climate proof' the world in his address to United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday. His calls come as Republicans in Washington and on the campaign trail say they'd trim international aid budgets, as Nikki Haley has, and throw climate cautions to the wind, as Vivek Ramaswamy suggested at the first GOP debate. Biden also talked up the success of PEPFAR - the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief - as its reauthorization is at stake over conservative claims...
  • The insurance bubble could make the value of your house plummet

    If you own a house in California, it keeps getting harder to insure it. After years of devastating wildfires, Allstate stopped offering new policies in the state last November. State Farm announced the same thing in May, citing “rapidly growing catastrophe exposure.” Farmers Insurance is limiting new policies. Some smaller insurers have followed. Thousands of other homeowners have been told that their policies won’t be renewed—and for some, the only option left is a much more expensive last-resort insurance program set up by the state.

Yahoo Finance Reporter Josh Schafer breaks down the impact gas prices could have on headline and core CPI (Consumer Price Index) data over the next several months and what it means for the economy.
  • South Dakota Regulators Deny Summit Carbon Solutions Permit For Controversial Carbon Capture Project

    n Monday, the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission denied a permit for a controversial carbon capture pipeline in the state. Summit Carbon Solutions (SCS) had filed dozens of eminent domain lawsuits against South Dakota landowners to seize properties that had been in their families for generations. The carbon technology captures carbon dioxide pollution from ethanol plants, power plants and steel factories, and stores it deep underground. The $5.5 billion Midwest Carbon Express pipeline would have extract carbon from ethanol plants in Iowa and stored it underground in North Dakota. The Inflation Reduction Act, signed into law by Joe Biden last...
  • The 'Climate Emergency' Is a Hoax (declaration of 1,609 scientists)

    Gatestone Institute ^ | September 10, 2023 | Robert Williams
    More than 1,600 scientists, including two Nobel laureates, have signed a declaration saying that "There is no climate emergency." The declaration is unlikely to get any attention from the mainstream media, unfortunately, but it is important for people to know about: the mass climate hysteria and the destruction of the US economy in the name of climate change need to stop. "Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific," states the declaration signed by the 1,609 scientists, including Nobel laureates John F. Clauser from the US and Ivar Giaever from Norway/US. "Climate policy relies on...

    A builder in Colorado owes $6 million to customers who never received their promised tiny homes after he allegedly blew the cash on race cars, real estate and lavish trips, according to new bankruptcy filings. Matthew Sowash, the president and CEO of Holy Ground Tiny Homes, failed to deliver tiny homes to 189 buyers while spending hundreds of thousands on seemingly personal purchases, KDVR reported. The nonprofit company spent more than $400,000 to buy and repair race cars and other vehicles in addition to $35,000 in real estate in Colorado and Alaska, according to an 81-page report filed Friday and...

    The Biden administration’s Department of Homeland Security announced on Wednesday that $20 million would be awarded to a number of organizations, including minority and LGBT groups, for “targeted violence and terrorism prevention.” The grants, awarded in the name of “equity,” will be provided to 34 organizations through the Targeted Violence and Terrorism Prevention Grant Program for Fiscal Year 2023 and administered by the DHS Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships and the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In a Wednesday press release, the DHS said the funding aimed to help local communities “develop and strengthen their capabilities in combatting targeted violence...
  • Washington power company raises rates to cover increased expense due to climate legislation—AG's office instructs them not to tell consumers reason for higher prices

    A Washington utility company jacked its rates on residents as a result of the Democrat-passed cap-and-trade program, but was prohibited from informing its customers as to the reason why, according to a new report. The Center Square reported that the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission (UTC) approved a request by Puget Sound Energy earlier this month to raise its natural gas rates to cover the costs of Washington’s cap-and-trade program, part of the Climate Commitment Act, which was passed by the Democrat-controlled state legislature and signed into law by Democrat Governor Jay Inslee. However, the UTC mandated that Puget Sound...

    For one of the biggest moments of his life, Eric Bochene wore a faded white t-shirt and sat in an empty, green-walled conference room, straining to hear the volume from the computer. He grimaced as the virtual conference technology glitched. And he frequently voiced his frustration with his situation. Bochene pleaded guilty in late August to a federal criminal charge for his role in the U.S. Capitol attack. But he didn't stand in a courtroom. His lawyer wasn't standing next to Bochene. Instead the attorney was on a separate virtual conference connection. And Bochene wasn't permitted to choose his own...

    Perhaps it is a little early for another update here on the “homelessness” situation in San Francisco. (My last update was about six months ago in March 2023.). But there is a good reason for an update now: At least a few people seem finally to be catching on that the basic idea behind “homelessness” advocacy is to exploit an issue that brings forth great human empathy to generate vast taxpayer funds and then to not solve the problem. The spending continues and increases without limit. There is way too much money — for advocates — in “homelessness” for the...

    National Public Radio was in a frenzy the other morning but it felt like the movie Groundhog Day: they were spreading tremendous alarm about the rise of Covid cases. We have to stop the spread, the announcer said, and that’s why masks are coming back to classrooms. However, they added, relief is on the way in the form of a new vaccine. Rinse, repeat — as the shampoo bottles say. This line of thinking — stop the spread to reduce strain on hospitals, mask up, and so on — is being echoed by all major media organs. Leading the way...
  • New ‘Pirola’ variant of COVID is spreading fast, has experts concerned

    As COVID-19 cases continue to rise nationwide, a new variant dubbed “Pirola” has experts worried. Also referred to as BA.2.86, Pirola is a highly mutated variant of the Omicron strain of the coronavirus, which emerged in 2021 and led to a frightful spike in COVID-19 cases and deaths. “When Omicron hit in the winter of 2021, there was a huge rise in COVID-19 cases because it was so different from the Delta variant, and it evaded immunity from both natural infection and vaccination,” infectious disease specialist Dr. Scott Roberts said in a Yale Medicine bulletin. The bulletin states that “there...

Then we were told that if you get double-boosted, you'll be protected from all future variants. That...

    Hawaiian officials attributed the cause of catastrophic wildfires to alleged failures from the state's main power utility company and downed power lines this week after Democrats blamed the disaster on global warming. In a lawsuit filed Thursday, the government of Maui County, Hawaii, alleged Hawaiian Electric Company (HECO) and its subsidiaries failed to properly power down live electrical equipment amid a red flag windstorm earlier this month. Due to this failure, downed power lines operated by the utility company sparked a series of deadly fires on the island, the lawsuit claimed. "The lawsuit alleges that the Defendants acted negligently by...
