Twenty Years, $5 Trillion, 2% Results – Conservative View from New Hampshire
Obviously, the Green Energy folks led by John Kerry, Al Gore, and the Wiz Kid, Greta Thunberg, are not mathematicians. In the last twenty years, the world has invested $5 Trillion, most of it in America, for a net reduction in fossil fuels of 2%. That is nearly $17,000 for every citizen in this country on a program that is not based on science and is poorly planned. And the results are abominable. If this were a private sector project, it would be scrapped or paused and retooled. But not with the government. The government solution is more funds (resources) and regulations. It is about seizing more control over the populace. Joe Biden’s White House is circumventing Congress and attacking our cars, air conditioners, gas stoves, washing machines, and dishwashers by instituting standards that will be nearly impossible to achieve. This White House initiative may be the biggest power grab in American history. The only positive we can pull out of this mess is by using Executive Order rather than legislation to force this down our throats, every decision can be reversed with the stroke of a pen, BUT we need to win back the White House to put pen to paper.
This plan was not moved forward as a master plan. It has been dropped piecemeal, with a new appliance added to the list each month. It is not a plan but a whim. This action is designed to assuage the Green Left. Even without significant results, the effort itself is adequate to secure the vote of the Greenies. A win for them is a politician validating their demands by doing anything that looks proactive. Results are immaterial because there were no expectations of the process. By the way, as we are spending a fortune on alternative energy sources, China is putting a new coal-burning plant onboard every 14 days. Does anyone believe that China is concerned with carbon credits or windmills?
We have to get out of the thumb of these Biden orders as quickly as possible. That will happen only with a Republican in the Oval Office in January 2025. Please, God, give us the strength to survive the next two years of Biden’s term.
Some of these mandates will be challenged by Republicans and find them in front of the Supreme Court, where sanity and reason still flicker. The flame is burning less bright after revelations of outside money filling the corrupt pockets of some of the Justices. The disclosures of significant donations made to Justices Sotomayer and Thomas damaged the image of the Court, which had always been beyond reproach.
The 2024 Election took a few hits this week. Everyone on the Left is upset and disappointed with CNN for giving Trump a significant platform. The Pro-Trump people in the audience were so demonstrably positive of Trump’s performance that CNN opted to avoid live audiences in future Town Hall events. CNN cannot be perceived as giving any positive airtime to Trump. Even some of CNN’s prime celebrities, like Anderson Cooper, were critical of the “despicable” event.
Joe Biden’s approval numbers continue to fall, and Senator Joe Manchin is making more noise about running as a third-party candidate. Three candidates on the ballot in 2024 will make the Presidential race a Saturday afternoon horse race when anyone can win. Republicans must coalesce behind whoever their candidate is on the ballot. We cannot fall into the trap of splintering our base.
