The Global Elite’s Plan to Radically Remake Our Economic and Social Lives thumbnail

The Great Reset is upon us…or at least the powers that be are trying to bring it out. What was once a fringe “conspiracy theory” is now on display plain as day for everyone to see.

Nord Stream 2 ‘Deal’ Is Not An American Concession, It’s Admission Of Defeat

Public Policy

After much arm-twisting, bullying and foghorn diplomacy towards its European allies, the United States appears to have finally given up on trying to block the giant Nord Stream 2 project with Russia. What an epic saga it has been, revealing much about American relations with Europe and Washington’s geopolitical objectives, as well as, ultimately, the historic decline […]


Gail Tverberg : To Be Sustainable, Green Energy Must Generate Adequate Taxable Revenue

Gail Tverberg : To Be Sustainable, Green Energy Must Generate Adequate Taxable Revenue thumbnail

What allows any type of energy to be sustainable? I would argue that one of the requirements for sustainability is adequate production of taxable revenue. Company managements depend upon taxable revenue for many purposes, including funding new investments and paying dividends to shareholders. Governments depend upon taxable income to collect enough taxes to provide infrastructure […]


Kunstler: The Ice-Cream Flavor Next Time

Public Policy

A nation mesmerized by its own weakness wanly celebrated the long-ago and faraway memory of standing up for itself, while it passively endures the current orgy of tyrannical cancellation and suppression of anyone talking back to the present folks-in-charge. Over just a few years, this tyranny has grown like a toxic slime mold from such […]


New York City Hates Nuclear Power And Natural Gas – Now They Have To Turn Off Their Air Conditioners

Public Policy

New York’s Indian Point nuclear power plant was banned on April 30th of this year – because the ruling political party and the environmental lobbyists who guide decisions convinced themselves that solar was ready to fill the gap. Now the mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, has told residents they need to shut […]


Why the World Can’t Afford an Oil War

Public Policy

It wouldn’t be an oil meeting without brinkmanship, but the stakes are high for the world economy as OPEC+ ministers resume talks today on an output agreement. Until a last-minute objection by the United Arab Emirates, the oil cartel and its allies thought they had a deal to boost monthly supplies by 400,000 barrels a day between August and […]

The Lie That A Kinder, Gentler US Empire Is Possible

Public Policy

Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar has once again been the center of an artificial controversy launched in bad faith, this time over a tweet where she mentioned the United States and Israel in the same breath as Hamas and the Taliban as perpetrators of “unthinkable atrocities”. “We must have the same level of accountability and justice […]


The Eugenical Highway

Public Policy

‘Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peace makers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country.’ – Hermann […]


It’s wrong to blame ‘overpopulation’ for climate change

It’s wrong to blame ‘overpopulation’ for climate change thumbnail

“Why is the impact of population growth infrequently mentioned? A couple producing more than two children will impact carbon emissions to a greater degree than any other activity. That impact cannot be offset by any practicable lifestyle change; switching to vegetarianism doesn’t come close to balance the scales.” — James, Lebanon, Pa. When the Census […]


Why Biden’s War On Gas And Oil Is A Crippling Pipe Dream

Why Biden’s War On Gas And Oil Is A Crippling Pipe Dream thumbnail

Ignoring the graphic lesson of the havoc a pipeline shutdown can bring, Michigan’s governor, Gretchen Whitmer, is trying to close the operations of a critical oil-and-gas pipeline that serves Canada and the Midwest. Her stated rationale doesn’t hold oil, er, water. Her real rationale is hostility to the oil and natural gas industry—a hostility that […]


Has IEA Resorted to Political Gimmickry?

Public Policy

On May 18, the International Energy Agency (IEA) unveiled a report that it claims is the “world’s first comprehensive study” of how to achieve a net-zero emissions energy system by 2050. In a press release the IEA contends its report outlines a plan for reaching that goal while “ensuring stable and affordable energy supplies, providing […]


Was Ruppert Right?

Was Ruppert Right? thumbnail

We are just over a hundred days into the Biden Administration and already there is a series of “crisis” taking place. Immigration, war in the middle east, a gas shortage, domestic terrorism, cyber-attacks, and a pandemic that was supposed to end after a two-week lockdown that extended to a year and a half in parts […]


David Suzuki: Stop The Spread

David Suzuki: Stop The Spread thumbnail

In 1970, most nations joined the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons to make the world safer from humanity’s worst self-destructive impulses (only India, Israel, North Korea, Pakistan and South Sudan are not signatories). Now the world faces a threat as great as or greater than nuclear weapons: global warming. That’s led to calls for […]


The Stiff Price of Weaponizing Energy for Political Gain

The Stiff Price of Weaponizing Energy for Political Gain thumbnail

Before Russia weaponized energy with the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipelines, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries had the monopoly on holding global economies at bay by raising prices or constraining supply at will. But now there is a more insidious strain of weaponizing energy since it incorporates fear […]


Mexican Power Plants Boost Dirty Fuel Oil Use, Shun Natural Gas

Public Policy

Fuel that is so dirty that the global shipping industry banned its use last year is being burned at the highest level in three years in Mexican power plants. With the global shipping industry shunning sulfurous fuel oil to curb emissions, storage tanks in Mexico are overflowing with the stuff. The solution for Mexico is […]

Kunstler: The Raptures of Hyper-Complexity

Public Policy

Looks like The New York Times will have to recalibrate its president-o-meter. For five months they’ve been styling Joe Biden as the reincarnation of FDR, but he’s looking more and more like the second coming of Millard Fillmore — who came to leadership of the dominant Whig Party at exactly the moment it flew up […]

If You Believed Something Else, You Wouldn’t Be Sitting Here thumbnail

Listen to this article: It sure is interesting how stuff keeps happening that makes free speech on the internet something dangerous which must be curtailed.

A Shock Ouster in Qatar

A Shock Ouster in Qatar thumbnail

Qatar ordered the arrest of Finance Minister Ali Sharif Al-Emadi for misusing public funds, an unprecedented move in the Gulf where allegations of criminal conduct by senior officials are typically addressed behind closed doors. Regarded as a budget-conscious finance chief, Al-Emadi took over in 2013 after helping transform Qatar National Bank from a local champion into the […]


The Greens Once Took On Germany, But Now They’re Taking It Over

The Greens Once Took On Germany, But Now They’re Taking It Over thumbnail

When Gerhard Schroeder formed a German government with the Greens in 1998, he made it clear that his Social Democratic Party was the “cook” and the junior partner the “waiter.” Well, not any more. Polls show the Greens with all the momentum going into September’s election and the odds-on favorites for a return to coalition […]


What The World’s Richest People Are Doing To Fight Climate Change

What The World’s Richest People Are Doing To Fight Climate Change thumbnail

The world’s wealthiest people have never been richer, and their carbon footprint has expanded as a consequence. Some of the very richest are actively engaged in fighting climate change, while others, not so much. A recent UN report found that  the richest 1% of the world population account for 15% of emissions. “The wealthy bear […]

Iran Obtains 60% Enriched Uranium Overnight In Alarming First thumbnail

Iran on Friday has announced its latest nuclear fait accompli, saying that it’s obtained for the first time ever 60% enriched uranium overnight.

Particularly Israel has warned […]

Bush, Obama, Or Trump: Who Was Best From Gasoline Prices?

Public Policy

Last week I filled up with gasoline, and the price was over $3.00 a gallon. It’s been a long time since I paid that much for gasoline.
