Natural Gas Imports Increase Following Democrat-Driven Pipeline Shutdowns

As more U.S. natural gas pipelines shut down due to climate concerns and the regulations prompted by them, the country is becoming increasingly reliant on foreign natural gas resources. One of the main importers of natural gas, Massachusetts, is reportedly increasing its liquid natural gas (LNG) imports from Trinidad and Tobago in South America over 2,300 miles away, at an estimated cost of over $8 per thousand cubic feet (MCF). The nearest American oil field, Marcellus Shale, is several hundred miles away and much cheaper: under $5 per MCF.

The Biden administration has moved to cut off further development of new pipeline projects while imposing increased burdens on existing ones. Immediately after President Joe Biden took office, the administration paused all new oil and gas leasing on federal lands; they are currently appealing a federal court’s ruling against those suspensions. Additionally, the Biden administration omitted any mention of pipelines in their proposed infrastructure plan fact sheet.

Climate concerns over the pipelines include the adverse effects of fracking, such as increased global warming from air pollutants, or groundwater pollution from spills. As a result, activists want the Biden administration to shut down all pipelines — not just natural gas pipelines. Several key natural gas pipelines have shut down recently: the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, PennEast Pipeline, STL Pipeline, and the Constitution Pipeline.

"Transitory" Shortages & Inflation Are Actually Your Quality Of Life Being Stolen Right Before Your Eyes


In the op-ed, a photo of empty store shelves - very similar to the ones I used to effectively make my argument that the U.S. is turning into a third world country - accompanies an argument that it’s “time for some new, more realistic expectations,” as “Americans’ expectations of speedy service and easy access to consumer products have been crushed like a Styrofoam container in a trash compactor.”

"American consumers, their expectations pampered and catered to for decades, are not accustomed to inconvenience," the op-ed states.

Its a convenient argument to make now, since when I make this “anti-comfort” argument about the importance of having a recession/depression and the Fed not stepping in the way every time those very same pampered consumers feel a little bit of financial unease, it is the left that casts me away as a conspiracy theorist and lunatic for advocating ushering in discomfort. Now, all of a sudden, because their policies brought on discomfort, the narrative changes to “lets all stop being so pampered all the time”.

"Rather than living constantly on the verge of throwing a fit, and risking taking it out on overwhelmed servers, struggling shop owners or late-arriving delivery people, we’d do ourselves a favor by consciously lowering expectations," the piece says.

While I agree with not taking out our rage on service workers, like bartenders and servers - I was one for more than a decade and can tell you firsthand it doesn’t accomplish anything - this continues to fall under the “simply don’t be a dick” ruleset, and has nothing to do with “consciously lowering expectations” for our quality of life across the board.

Joe Biden's mistakes are historical. Never before in the history of America has a President screwed the nation as badly as this decrepit senile man. Never before after watching us slide into such a mess have so many crazy insane Enviromental whack'os asked for more of the same.

38,000 Cross-Border Truckers Will ‘Immediately Exit’ Due to Vaccine Mandate


Earlier this month, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that beginning in “early January” of 2022, all inbound foreign national travelers — including truckers — must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and provide related proof of vaccination.

The announcement quickly drew criticism and concern among those who operate cross-border trucking businesses.

In fact, one top Canadian trucking executive asserted the mandate would result in a “disaster.”

Now, CTA is sounding the alarm on just how deeply the vaccination requirements will impact the supply chain that moves by truck — which accounts for approximately 70 percent of the nearly $650 billion in trade between the U.S. and Canada.

Currently, there are 120,000 Canadians who operate cross-border and 40,000 U.S. drivers moving north-south trade.

Business groups ask White House to delay Biden Covid vaccine mandate until after the holidays


Worried that President Joe Biden’s Covid vaccine mandate for private companies could cause a mass exodus of employees, business groups are pleading with the White House to delay the rule until after the holiday season.

White House officials at the Office of Management and Budget held dozens of meetings with labor unions, industry lobbyists and private individuals last week as the administration conducts its final review of the mandate, which will require businesses with 100 or more employees to ensure they are vaccinated against Covid or tested weekly for the virus. It is estimated to cover roughly two-thirds of the private sector workforce.

OMB officials have several meetings lined up Monday and Tuesday with groups representing dentists, trucking companies, staffing companies and realtors, among others.

The American Trucking Associations, which will meet with the OMB on Tuesday, warned the administration last week that many drivers will likely quit rather than get vaccinated, further disrupting the national supply chain at time when the industry is already short 80,000 drivers.

This is outright lunacy. We have Dominion Cove Point LNG exporting our natural gas to parts of Asia and India, and yet at the same time we are importing natural gas? WTAF?

‘This Is Just The Kind Of Chaos The American Economy Needs’: CNN Praises U.S. Labor Shortage



“Welcome to Strike-tober,” said Fareed Zakaria on Sunday — using a term coined by labor unions to celebrate the mass walkouts that have idled factories in the midst of a global supply chain crisis. “Last week 10,000 workers of the farm equipment manufacturer John Deere went on strike … [and] 1,400 workers at Kellogg’s have been striking for weeks,” he said. Zakaria did not mention that the strikes halted production at both companies, leaving farmers scrambling for equipment and paying tens of thousands of dollars more for used tractors than in years past.

But the U.S. shortage, which resulted in 10.4 million unfilled jobs, goes beyond organized labor to throngs of Americans temporarily quitting their jobs or permanently leaving the workforce.

“Most workers in the U.S. are not unionized, so they may not be inclined to organize a strike. But that doesn’t mean they can’t walk off their jobs,” said Zakaria. “Since April, an average of about four million workers have quit their jobs every month. It is a trend economists have called the Great Resignation.”

[clip]

Zakaria said the worker shortage is “actually good news,” because it lets workers demand higher wages.

“Low-skilled American workers … make almost one-third less per hour than their counterparts in Canada,” Zakaria said — without mentioning that the total tax burden in Canada is far higher in the United States. The combined marginal tax rate for workers making $50,000 Canadian ($40,500 U.S.) is higher in any Canadian province than in all 50 U.S. states, according to a 2020 study from Canada’s Fraser Institute.

Economic data show that higher wages have not attracted enough job applicants. Instead, in numerous industries hourly wages rose, employment fell, and the price charged to consumers rose.

Veteran Puts Biden, Dems on Notice: You Don't Speak for Hispanics



Now pretend — and this wouldn’t happen but stay with me — illegals told the pollsters they would vote Republican in overwhelming numbers, vs. the current reality of Hispanic Americans overwhelmingly voting Democrat. Know what would happen? Me, too.

Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, CNN, MSNBC, and the entire Democrat Party would lock arms and form a human chain on the border stretching from the Pacific Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico in a desperate attempt to keep illegals the hell out of the country.

The reality is the Democrat Party takes advantage of and panders to Hispanics for the sole purpose of the voting booth; precisely as they have exploited and pandered to Black America for more than six decades.

But here’s the deal. Donald Trump in 2020 outperformed his 2016 showing among Hispanic voters, earning the support of about one in three Hispanic voters nationwide, even though Biden won the Hispanic vote by a roughly two-to-one margin overall. (Trump realized similar increases over 2016 in the Black vote.)

The bottom line:

An increasing percentage of Hispanic (and Black) Americans clearly told the Democrat Party in 2020: You don’t speak for us. One such Hispanic is Christopher Rodriguez, a GOP congressional candidate, who is also a small business owner and U.S. Marine Corps combat veteran. Rodriguez told “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade on Monday he didn’t fight for Americans’ freedom to let the radical left destroy it.

‘We Will Lose Several Thousand People’: Top Boss Warns Against Biden Vax Mandate


“We will lose several thousand people,” Hayes said during a CNBC interview, Reuters reported. The company is planning to comply with Biden’s vaccine order, set to go in effect on December 8.

Raytheon Technologies, which makes Tomahawk missiles, has a total of 125,000 U.S. employees, the report noted.

The top boss also said he “expects Biden’s vaccine mandate to cause ‘some disruption’ in the supply chain in a post-earnings conference call,” Reuters noted.

Biden under pressure to drop vaccine mandates for federal defense contractors over national security concerns


The Washington Examiner reviewed a letter Alabama Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville sent to the White House Tuesday afternoon claiming that Biden's "federal contractor vaccine mandate will have negative effects on our national security" and called on the president "to remove — or, at a minimum, delay and clarify — vaccination requirements on private companies and academic research institutions that are actively supporting the Department of Defense."

"I share your desire to see our country through the COVID-19 pandemic as quickly as possible, and, I — like you — have elected to take the vaccine. But your administration’s mandate is short-sighted, ill-conceived, and threatens our national security," Tuberville wrote in a letter sent to the White House on Tuesday. "The American warfighter is ultimately harmed when skilled workers leave the defense contractor workforce, a foreseeable consequence of your order."

Tuberville specifically noted that Alabama alone employed nearly 100,000 federal contractors in 2020, and "more than 5,000 contractors who support the Department of Defense."

Watters torches Atlantic piece targeting U.S. shoppers amid shortages: 'Shut up you pampered shopaholics'


Watters said on "The Five" Monday that while he finds the media's misguided fingerpointing upsetting, it isn't surprising if you consider the political party of the current Oval Office occupant.

"We get these types of things when Democrats are in office," he said. "All of a sudden, it’s our problem. The president's problem becomes our problems so the media can shift the accountabilities to the American people."

Biden’s Handlers Push Socialism in Cartoon Presentation About ‘Linda From Peoria’

The opening image depicts every little girl’s dream: a very pregnant woman wearing a hard hat and tool belt, and consulting a clipboard. This is the working world of Leftist fantasy, where men are optional and women do all the physically demanding work with aplomb. “Linda is a working mother in Peoria, Illinois,” we’re told. “She works at a local manufacturing facility as a production worker and earns $40,000 per year. She is pregnant with her son, Leo.”

There is nary a word about Linda’s husband or lack thereof, or of Leo’s father. This is noteworthy on a number of levels, not least the fact that the United States government is here presenting as exemplary a single mother and broken family. Innumerable single mothers are indeed heroic and courageous and have lived lives of selflessness and sacrifice, but the question must be asked here: what is Biden’s handlers’ agenda in choosing to feature a single, and pregnant, woman rather than an intact family struggling to make ends meet? Is the Biden administration trying to promote the idea that women don’t need husbands (and men don’t need wives) and children don’t need fathers? Of course they are — because Biden’s handlers have someone else in mind to perform the traditional husband/father role of provider: the federal government.

The subsequent images say: “Once Leo is born, Linda begins receiving Child Tax Credits of $300 per month ($3600 annually) to help cover essential costs like groceries, rent, and medicine. As Leo grows up, the government helps cover the costs for his daycare, guaranteeing that Linda doesn’t need to pay more than 7 percent of her income on child care. When Leo turns 3, he attends a high-quality Pre-K program for free.”

The images don’t give the slightest hint of who is going to foot the bill for Linda’s groceries, rent, and medicine, and Leo’s “high-quality Pre-K program,” but the web page on which the images appear explains that no one is ever going to have a cough up a penny for any of this except those big, bad, top-hatted plutocrats:

The Build Back Better framework is fully paid for:
Combined with savings from repealing the Trump Administration’s rebate rule, the plan is fully paid for by asking more from the very largest corporations and the wealthiest Americans. The 2017 tax cut delivered a windfall to them, and this would help reverse that—and invest in the country’s future. No one making under $400,000 will pay a penny more in taxes.

I asked my son about getting this child tax credit. He said he's banking the money because he uses the deduction when filing to lessen his tax burden. Now he will owe thousands. He's trying to find a way to opt out.

Biden Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy Pours Gasoline on Rising Gas Prices With Ridiculous Announcement


McCarthy was primed (emphasis, mine).

“Yeah, well, this is basically a day of reckoning, I think, for the oil and gas sector. Because for many decades, they denied climate change. And now that we’re, every day, seeing the wildfires, the droughts, the floods, the heat stress [rolling-eyes emoji], people are no longer listening to that or tolerating it.
So, they can’t get away with that anymore. They have to get serious about delivering clean energy and electricity to the people in this country, and they have to stop with the deception and move into this decade and help us make the transition to clean energy so that we can win the 21st century here. [China and Russia — the world top two polluters — are not participating in global climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland.]
So, there’s no more hiding climate change. There’s no more climate deniers. This is just about who wins the future, and whoever addresses climate in the smartest way, which we intend to do, is going to be the big winner.”

Anyone else wondering what the hell the White House climate advisor has to do with regulating oil and gas prices? Call me crazy, but seems to me that would be the job of the equally clueless Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm.
McCarthy wasn’t finished. After Jackson asked if the evil Republicans “argue, hey, more regulations could mean consumers, Americans pay more on stuff, you say?”, the intrepid climate advisor busted out the Democrat go-to: increased “investment” — more taxpayer money and driving up the national debt.
