Pompeo Puts Biden on the Spot: Accuses China of ‘Genocide’

H/T Western Journal.

Joe Pee Pads Biden has chapped lips from kissing the Chi-Coms ass.

Joe Pee Pads Biden s owned body and soul y the Chi-Coms.

The Biden administration is going to have to show its cards fast.

The China-related dealings of President-elect Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, might have gotten squelched by the propaganda giants of social media in the run-up to the presidential campaign, but a last-day declaration by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is likely to put Biden’s Chinese policy on full display.

And the whole world will be watching.

In a statement Tuesday, Pompeo declared that Chinese President Xi Jinping’s government is committing “genocide and crimes against humanity” with its treatment of the ethnic minority Uighur Muslims, Reuters reported.

The harshly-worded statement took direct aim at the Chinese Communist Party’s control over the People’s Republic of China and cited the U.S. stand against human rights abuses — from the genocide of the Nazi holocaust to the savagery of the Islamic State group and its treatment of “Yazidis, Christians, and other religious minorities in Iraq and Syria.”

“For the past four years, this Administration has exposed the nature of the Chinese Communist Party and called it what it is: a Marxist-Leninist regime that exerts power over the long-suffering Chinese people through brainwashing and brute force,” the statement said.

“We have paid particular attention to the CCP’s treatment of the Uyghur people, a Muslim minority group that resides largely in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region in Western China. While the CCP has always exhibited a profound hostility to all people of faith, we have watched with growing alarm the Party’s increasingly repressive treatment of the Uyghurs and other ethnic and religious minority groups.”

Since at least March 2017, the statement recounted, the crimes of Xi’s government against the Uighurs have included arbitrary imprisonment and torture, forced sterilization, forced labor and general restrictions on freedoms of movement, expression and religious beliefs.

“I believe this genocide is ongoing, and that we are witnessing the systematic attempt to destroy Uyghurs by the Chinese party-state,” Pompeo said in the statement.

 the forced assimilation and eventual erasure of a vulnerable ethnic and religious minority group, even as they simultaneously assert their country as a global leader and attempt to remold the international system in their image.”

Now, obviously, the question arises about why the announcement took until literally the last day of President Donald Trump’s administration. China and the U.S. have been at loggerheads for the duration of the Trump presidency.

In that connection, it’s worth noting that in June, Trump signed the Uyghur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020  — a bill that passed unanimously in the Senate by voice vote and with overwhelming support in the House.

That bill condemned the Chinese Communist Party’s treatment of the Uighurs and provided for sanctions against Chinese officials responsible.

In October, the Trump administration was among the leadership of 40 nations that called on China to allow independent observers into the Xinjiang region to monitor the treatment of the population.

And just last week, as The Associated Press reported, the Trump administration blocked imports of cotton, tomatoes and other goods from Xinjiang because of suspicions they were produced or harvested using slave labor.

In other words, late it might be, but Pompeo’s declaration wasn’t from out of nowhere.

Regardless, there’s no question that the declaration is going to put Biden and his foreign policy team on the spot from Day 1. A declaration of genocide by a presidential administration — even an administration on its way out the door — is not a matter to be taken lightly.

Biden & Co. are going to have to decide, fast, whether they’re going to stand by silently while a world power engages in a practice that evokes global horror, or whether they’re going to engage and try to stop it.

The establishment media is likely to take the line that the Pompeo declaration was an act of sabotage of some kind by Trump officials to lock in Biden’s foreign policy, or some kind of petty gesture by Trump against a rival nation — anything to keep attacking Trump.

But there’s no getting around the fact that Biden and his team — including Antony Blinken, Biden’s nominee for secretary of state — are going to be in the position of reiterating the Pompeo declaration or walking it back.

They will, in effect, be telling the world that the United States does not have a problem with China’s barbaric treatment of a minority group — and a Muslim minority group at that.

That might be OK with Democrats who are more concerned with the power they can wield against Americans than the power China wields against those under its control. It might be OK with the NBA and LeBron James.

But it would be a loss of face on the world stage by a new American president who’s international dealings are already suspect to tens of millions of Americans who voted for Trump in November — and maybe some who would have voted for Trump if they had not been kept in the dark about Biden by social media.

It would also be an abrogation of the responsibility Biden and his team will now assume for the American people — and the international community.

As Pompeo’s statement noted:

“The United States has worked exhaustively to pull into the light what the Communist Party and General Secretary Xi Jinping wish to keep hidden through obfuscation, propaganda, and coercion. Beijing’s atrocities in Xinjiang represent an extreme affront to the Uyghurs, the people of China, and civilized people everywhere.

“We will not remain silent. If the Chinese Communist Party is allowed to commit genocide and crimes against humanity against its own people, imagine what it will be emboldened to do to the free world, in the not-so-distant future.”

The Pompeo declaration just raised the stakes in the global standoff between the U.S. and China.

And the Biden administration is going to have to show its cards — fast.

Nolte: CNN Demands Cable Companies Blacklist OAN and Newsmax TV

H/T Breitbart.

The attempts to censor Conservatives has begun.

After spending five years attempting to claim President Trump stole the 2016 election, after five years of pushing the Russia Collusion Hoax, after five years of promoting and encouraging violence against Trump and his supporters, the far-left CNN is now demanding that its competition at OAN and Newsmax TV be blacklisted.

CNNLOL isn’t bothering to hide its McCarthysim anymore. CNNLOL is straight-up calling for the big cable TV companies to rip OAN and Newsmax TV off of their bundles, to no longer make either network available to their customers. And after the cable companies agree to do this (and they will), CNNLOL will go after every streaming outlet that carries OAN and Newsmax, and on and on and on…

And this is where I’m supposed to get all outraged about CNNLOL’s hypocrisy and anti-Americanism and unfairness and double standards and bias and blah, blah, blah…

Well, I’m so goddamned tired of writing about CNNLOL’s blah, blah, blah, I’m not going to do to anymore.

I was warning everyone about CNNLOL’s embrace of political violence and McCarthysim eight years ago, during the Obama years, when people were laughing at me for being an alarmist…

All the way back in 2019, I warned everyone that CNNLOL was coming to blacklist YOU and that it was time to start building our own thing.

This doesn’t make me Nostradamus. I was just paying attention. And I was right. I’m not always right, but on this one I was right.

Let me put it to you this way…

 

The Twitter alternative Gab is up and running.

The Twitter alternative Parler is down.

You want to know why?

Gab built its own thing. Gab created its own servers so no one could take it down.

Parler is down because Parler used Amazon’s servers. Amazon! What did Parler expect? Why would any right-leaning anything count on Amazon/Google/Facebook/Apple/YouTube/Twitter to keep its business alive? You’re begging to be out of business.

And now the whining begins…

Oh, well, I guess we’re just supposed to build our own Apple.

Well, someone built an Apple, didn’t they?

Oh, well, I guess we’re just supposed to build our own PayPal?

Well, someone built a PayPal, didn’t they?

Get this… Someone also built a YouTube and a Google and a Facebook and a Twitter and Internet Service Providers and banks. Israel built a whole country.

Listen, you can whine about CNNLOL and how unfair it all is and how biased and all the double standards and boo hoo and boo hoo and boo fucking hoo all the live long day, or those who have the ability and power to do so, can get to work building our own thing.

Those are our only options. Build your own thing or be forever silenced. I guess there’s a third option. You can do what Fox News did and sell out. There’s always that…

You know, I remember back in the 90s when one of the left’s big excuses for not opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil exploration was that it would take ten years for oil to start flowing from there.

Well, that was 25 years ago.

Does 1995 feel like a quarter century ago?

Yeah, it might take five to ten years before our own thing is built, but had we had started when we should have, as soon as Alex Jones was blacklisted, we’d be talking three to eight years.

They’re coming for us. For all of us. The left is not screwing around. So we have two choices… We can run around in a puppy dog circle and whimper until we’re disappeared, or we can get to work.

Oh, it’s too hard….

Be an American not an American’t.

I’ll trade 100 American’s for one illegal alien ready to get to work.

No, The Storming Of The Capitol Wasn’t A Gun Control Success Story

H/T Bearing Arms.

There are a lot of hot takes going around about last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol, but Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen’s claim that the riots are proof that gun control works is a take hot enough to melt steel girders.

For Cullen, the issue is simple. Washington, D.C. has restrictive gun control laws and there weren’t a lot of guns found on those who were rioting; therefore, the District’s gun laws must be effective.

 

It is forever a stain on the president and his seditious supporters that five people died in theputsch, but it would have been infinitely worse if the gun-loving insurrectionists had carried weapons as openly as so many of them do in their home states.

The police did find a dozen or so weapons on people they arrested before and after the attack, but if Washington’s firearms laws weren’t as strict as they are, thousands of hyped-up gun nuts who took part in the insurrection would have been armed.

So we’re supposed to believe that thousands of “gun-loving insurrectionists” came to D.C. with the intent of kicking off a revolution, but they left their guns at home because they didn’t want to violate D.C.’s gun laws? Is Cullen serious, or just delusional here?

There’s another obvious possibility that Cullen completely ignores; the vast majority of those attending the Stop the Steal rally in D.C. weren’t violent insurrectionists, and even the majority of those who ended up flooding into the Capitol had no intent of injuring others or committing acts of violence. To me, that makes much more sense than the idea of thousands of wannabe revolutionaries heading to D.C. to kick off a revolt while also trying to remain on the right side of D.C.’s gun laws.

Cullen continues:

The District of Columbia has some of the nation’s strictest gun laws, which would be even more restrictive except for a 2008 Supreme Court decision that found the district’s ban on handguns unconstitutional. While the Metropolitan Police issue concealed-carry permits, it is a stringent process and there is no reciprocal agreement with other states. Open carry is strictly prohibited, and large swaths of the city are gun-free zones, including the US Capitol buildings and grounds.

It seems to me that if D.C.’s restrictions on both keeping and bearing arms were really effective, its homicide rate would be a lot lower than surrounding communities in both Virginia and Maryland. That’s not the case at all. In 2019, for instance, D.C.’s homicide rate was 49 per 100,000. That same year, Virginia’s homicide rate was 5.0 per 100,000 and Maryland had roughly nine homicides per 100,000 people.

It’s hard to argue that gun control works when D.C.’s murder rate is 10x that of the neighboring state that has far fewer gun control laws on the books, but Cullen tries his best. Given that he doesn’t actually have any evidence to back up his assertions, though, the Globe columnist quickly falls back on the tried-and-true method of lobbing insults at those across the ideological divide.

This week, when some Republican lawmakers from states that let just about anyone walk around with an assault rifle strapped to their chest or a pistol in their purse showed up on Capitol Hill and found metal detectors had been installed, they behaved as children would at a birthday party when told there would be no cake.

One of them, a walking, squawking parody of Annie Oakley named Lauren Boebert, caused a scene just a week into her first term as a congresswoman from Colorado.

The queen of gun nuts, Boebert runs a bar called Shooters in a town called Rifle. Seriously.

The rest of Cullen’s column avoids any effort to try to bolster his argument that the riot in D.C. is proof that gun control works, so there’s no point in quoting any more of his drivel.

One other counterargument to Cullen’s suggestion that it was D.C.’s gun laws that kept the violence from getting any worse. It was almost a year ago that more than 20,000 gun owners legally exercising their right to carry showed up in downtown Richmond, Virginia for the annual Lobby Day rally hosted by the Virginia Citizens Defense League, and there was no violence at all that day.

Under Cullen’s theory, that event should have been an absolute horror show of violence based on the number of “gun toting gun nuts” who were present and pissed off about the dozens of anti-gun bills that had been introduced in the state legislature. Instead, I saw gun owners of all ages, sexes, races, and political ideologies come together in a peaceful and powerful protest against the gun control agenda of Ralph Northam and Virginia Democrats. It was Washington, D.C. (home to some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation )where we saw violence erupt; not Richmond, where the gun laws (at that time, anyway) recognized the right of the People to bear arms.

Violence doesn’t come from the gun, or the fire extinguisher, or the American flag used as a spear. It comes from within, and more gun control laws aren’t the answer to those on the Left and the Right who think it’s time for an honest-to-God revolution. You have to address the argument, and frankly, trying to impose sweeping new gun control laws only plays in to their accelerationist beliefs.

I’m not surprised to see anti-gun nuts like Kevin Cullen try to use the storming of the Capitol to push for more gun control laws. I suspect, in fact, that we’re only getting started.

Recall Petition: Stop the Spread of the Newsom

H/T The Washington Free Beacon.

If Comrade Newsome gets recalled will his replacement be any better?

Newsom faces recall, dwindling Dem bench.

Republicans and activists say their recall effort against Gov. Gavin Newsom (D., Calif.) is aimed at protecting the rest of the country from the failed policies of California Democrats.

More than 1.1. million Californians have signed the recall petition, rapidly approaching the 1.9 million necessary to force an election. The activists hope that an additional batch of 1.5 million mailed petitions can push the number over the edge. State assemblyman Kevin Kiley (R.) told the Washington Free Beacon that the campaign will challenge the growing influence California Democrats wield over the national political conversation—from coronavirus lockdowns to economic and environmental policies that reward big tech while hurting small businesses.

“Part of our responsibility in California is to warn the rest of the country,” Kiley said. “The same failures that have led Gavin Newsom to do so much harm, we can’t let that spread to the rest of the country.”

Newsom has boosted his national star on late night television and in national media profiles. Even as the governor has wooed national Democrats, though, he has seen close allies leave for Washington, D.C. President-elect Joe Biden tapped current California attorney general Xavier Becerra (D.) to join his cabinet as the secretary of health and human services. Newsom appointed longtime associate and California secretary of state Alex Padilla (D.) to replace Vice President-elect Kamala Harris in the Senate.

Anne Dunsmore, a political strategist and campaign manager for the pro-recall group Rescue California, said that the loss of top Newsom allies to the Biden administration could open up further opportunities to chip away at the traditional dominance of California Democrats in future statewide elections.

“The absence of all these people are going to make it harder for them to defend the U.S. Senate seat, all the constitutional offices that are being vacated,” Dunsmore said. “I think it’s delightful.”

The Biden transition and California Democratic Party did not respond to requests for comment.

Those working the recall effort worry that the failed policies on display in California could soon affect the nation at large. According to Dunsmore, California has served as fertile testing ground for liberal policies, particularly under the leadership of House speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.).

 

“This is a big game on the national stage because it’s a test of the Pelosi machine,” Dunsmore  told the Free Beacon. “A lot of the ideas they want to try out nationally they test here.”

Democrats have dismissed the effort as a Republican “coup” of the governorship, even though it’s being done through legal means. Newsom’s predecessor, Gov. Jerry Brown (D.), was subject to multiple recall attempts, which were ultimately unsuccessful. There is, however, precedent for a successful recall: Californians recalled then-governor Gray Davis (D.) in 2003, replacing him with Arnold Schwarzenegger, the state’s last Republican governor.

Gov. Newsom’s office did not respond to a request for comment.

While the rising Democratic star is tinkering with his public image, Republicans told the Free Beacon that he has lost much of the support that propelled him to the governorship in the first place. Former San Diego mayor Kevin Faulconer, a potential GOP candidate in a recall election, said Californians are already voting with their feet. In the last year, tech supergiants such as Oracle, Hewlett Packard, Palantir, SpaceX, and Toyota have all moved the brunt of their operations to more hospitable business environments.

“Under Gavin Newsom, jobs are leaving, homelessness is skyrocketing, and the state government can’t even do the basics, like issue unemployment checks to those most in need,” Faulconer said. “It’s time Gavin Newsom is held accountable because his failures are harming lives and livelihoods.”

Newsom rode into office in a wave, winning by 20 points in 2018, but recall organizers are confident that his handling of the coronavirus—particularly his flagrant violation of his own rules so that he could dine with lobbyists at a November birthday event—has given them a chance. Dunsmore said a large bloc of petition signatures came from Newsom voters and registered Democrats.

“It’s the mad moms … women who [are] basically at home schooling their children, or trying to run their businesses, or trying to do work for their employers and keep their jobs,” Dunsmore said of those in the front of the recall campaign.

Organizers have until March 17 to submit the recall petition.

 

Democrats Imposing Measures on Citizens They Condemn for ‘Undocumented’ Foreigners

H/T AmmoLand.

It is going to be a long hard and dark four years under Joe Pee Pads Biden.

(Ammoland.com)- “Following the January 6 insurrection, a seven-foot, non-scalable fence was added around the Capitol Hill complex,” Business Insider reveals in a Sunday article on “ramped up” security for the Biden inauguration. “Barbed wire sits atop the fence, providing an additional barrier to entry to the grounds.”

“This morning while in that half-awake /half-asleep state, out of nowhere I thought ‘Green Zones,’” WarOnGuns Correspondent DDS told me in an email sent over the weekend. “In places like Baghdad and Kabul, we built secure areas to protect our people and the government we were trying to establish from hostile militias. I never thought I would live to see a similar process going on in our national and state capitals. Yet here we are.”

These changes appear slated to last beyond the inauguration and become “the new normal.”

“Dems Demand Public Locked Out of Capitol Grounds Forever – Publish Bill To Install Fence Despite Claiming Walls Don’t Work,” The National Pulse observes. “The bill – H.R.339 – seeks to ‘direct the Architect of the Capitol to design and install an appropriate fence around the perimeter of the United States Capitol, including the East Front and the West Front.’”

Curiously, bill sponsor Ritchie Torres has in the past condemned such efforts, at least when meant to secure the country from foreign nationals attempting to bypass immigration laws.

 

“@realDonaldTrump is diverting money from important infrastructure, military projects & #PuertoRico for a border wall intended to divide our country,” Torres tweeted in 2019. Evidently, keeping unvetted aliens out of the country divides us but keeping citizens out of a Capitol that they paid for unifies us. Or something.

That’s not the only cognitive dissonance on display.

“The Capitol Police arrested a man for possession of a handgun and over 500 rounds of ammunitions [sic] after he presented ‘non-government issued’ inaugural credentials at a police checkpoint in Washington, DC,” Mediaite reports. Sounds like a real threat, doesn’t it? Especially with initial fake news reports saying he tried to use a “fake” ID.

Except you need to go to a source that fleshes out more details to find he’s a security guard, he was lost and asking them for directions, he is licensed to carry in Virginia and says he forgot the gun was in his vehicle, and the search was predicated on Capitol Police noticing pro-gun decals on his truck. Where have we seen that danger to supposedly protected speech before?

And while inaugural credentials are no doubt necessary security measures, the thought can’t be ignored that one of the points Democrats make about voting (and isn’t that what this whole electoral “controversy” necessitating increased security is about?) is that requiring government-issued IDs to vote “disenfranchises” minorities?

Apparently, the problem is (or was) recognized enough to hold a House committee hearing in 2006 on “’You Don’t Need Papers to Vote?’ Non-Citizen Voting and ID Requirements in U.S. Elections.”

We’re not done exploring inconsistencies.

“U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event,” Chicago’s WGN9 reports.

That’s a lot of government guns being deployed against unarmed citizens whose right, by Constitutional mandate, “shall not be infringed.” Hey, it’s not like Democrat gun-grabbers are really “anti-gun.” They just want to be the ones controlling them all.

We should have no problem with vetting the troops, although you’d think that would be a condition of continued eligibility to be in the Guard. Unlike Fort Hood. More likely, this is a political purge that will be used to conflate members who take their oaths seriously (including refusing unlawful orders to disarm American citizens) with white supremacists.

What we should all have a problem with – except for Democrats and “cheap labor Republicans” – is the foreign nationals who enter this country illegally who undergo absolutely no vetting and put the entire population, not just protected politicians, at risk. Unlike the “rigorous security screening” politicians lie about when “legally” admitting “refugees” from places it is impossible to obtain complete records from, those who sneak into the country undergo no scrutiny at all.

No problem, Joe Biden says. In fact, he’s counting on it.

“Biden will announce legislation his first day in office to provide a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants in the United States illegally,” the Associated Press reports. That’s because, unlike head-in-the-sand state and national “gun rights groups” that refuse to even talk about it, he knows they will vote overwhelmingly Democrat and overwhelmingly anti-gun, meaning an unchallengeable majority will be able to pass whatever gun grabs they dream up and be upheld by judges they appoint.

Lured in by such promises, a “caravan” comprised of thousands of Hondurans is on its way to our southern border. The Biden administration’s response?

“[C]oming right now does not make sense for their own safety…while we put into place processes that they may be able to access in the future.”

The great object is not to protect U.S. sovereignty, or even pretend to adhere to COVID-19 restrictions being used to decimate the economy of the middle class. It’s to make sure the tax-funded infrastructure is in place to process them and locate them to where it will have the most impact. Like “red states.”

And why stop there? If the Democrats repeal the 60-vote Senate filibuster/cloture rule, as Biden “signaled openness” to, it will take only a simple majority to pass new gun controls, pack the Supreme Court, provide statehood for the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico, which will result in four new anti-gun senators, and millions of new anti-gun Democrat voters.

On the bright side, they will no longer need to steal votes.

I was going to point out the hypocrisy of how, in order to even pretend to be consistent, requiring a government ID to buy a gun must also disenfranchise minorities the same way it (supposedly) does with voting, but the thought strikes: Give it a few years under total Democrat rule and we won’t be able to do that anyway. At least “legally.”

Unless you believe the lie that “no one is talking about taking your guns.”

A Brief History, of the Refrigerator

H/T Martha Stewart.com.

From ice boxes to space-saving marvels, here’s how the refrigerator became the modern appliance we know and love.

Can you imagine a kitchen without a refrigerator? It’s hard to believe, but the way that home cooks keep their groceries cool is relatively new. If you’re wondering who invented the concept of refrigeration, it’s hard to say-people first began freezing water in China in 1,000 B.C., and many societies (including the Greeks, Romans, and Hebrews) stored snow in insulated materials to keep foods cool, according to the International Journal of Refrigeration. In the 18th century, Europeans often collected ice in the winter and salted large pieces before storing it deep underground, and this Colonial Williamsburg Foundation report says the practice would help ice keep for months. Before the advent of the refrigerator, people spent a lot of time preserving food-canningsmoking, drying, or salting.

It wasn’t until the early 1860s that Americans were introduced to the icebox, an early precursor of the refrigerator. Tim Buszka, a senior associate product marketing manager with the Whirlpool Corporation, says the icebox became more commonplace for middle and upper-class families in the 1890s. “There’s not one real clear inventor of the modern refrigerator,” Buszka says. “It was mostly auto companies who created early refrigerator models-Frigidaire was owned by General Motors way back when.”

The earliest models of the refrigerator really just had one feature to them-a chunk of ice. According to archival records from the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, the icebox was an insulated cabinet with a compartment containing ice that kept perishable foods cool. Fresh ice would have to be inserted into the fridge every week or so.

When the first home refrigerator was introduced in the early 1910s, Buszka says it was a luxury for even the wealthiest Americans. “Back then, the cold box itself would exist on the first floor in the kitchen and you had a supplemental unit in the basement,” Buszka says, explaining that the first air compressors were extremely loud.

 

It wasn’t until early 1920s that companies like Whirlpool introduced the earliest forms of the single-unit refrigerator featuring a brand new technology-evaporative cooling. It was a self-contained unit, and “wasn’t cheap at the time, but didn’t require the same amount of installation and maintenance of earlier models,” Buszka explained.

According to Pacific Standard magazine, only eight percent of American residences had a refrigerator in the early 1930s-but by the early 1940s, almost 45 percent of American homes had ditched ice boxes and installed a refrigerator.

The Whirlpool models produced en masse in the early 1930s had top freezers. Design features that we know and love now, like wood trim handles and bottom-drawer freezers came along later. Beginning in the 1950s, Whirlpool kicked off the trend of designing refrigerators and other appliances in vivid colors, including signature hues like “harvest gold” and “avocado green.” And in the 1970s, design features like side-by-side doors were introduced.

“Between the 1930s and 1970s, the evolution of refrigerator design focused on configuration, evolution, and organization,” Buszka says. “But the development we’re most proud of is energy-efficient refrigerators during the 1980s. People think of the refrigerator of being very power dependent, but in reality, they can run on as little power as one incandescent light bulb.”

In the 21st century, all refrigerator models are anchored in cutting-edge technology and have features that are increasingly customizable. And Whirlpool is looking to revolutionize modern refrigerators by returning to their 1920s roots. “Old ice boxes were basically the first four-door refrigerators, where each door had a specific function beyond supporting cooling,” Buskza says. “In some markets, we’ve launched [four-door] refrigerators that have quick grab zones for kids who have to stand on a chair to access the fridge.”

More innovative functions currently in development include “total coverage cooling,” which is a design feature that pipes cold air to each and every shelf in the fridge, which means you can finally place milk in the back of the fridge without worrying it’ll freeze. Now that’s truly far out.

 
 
 

Biden to Kill Keystone XL Pipeline on First Day in Office

H/T Western Journal.

This move will make the tree huggers and the OPECkers happy.

Gasoline in America will raise in price as we will be at the mercy of the OPECkers once more.

Joe Pee Pads Biden is a dumb Son Of A Bitch that will screw America and Americans.

President-elect Joe Biden plans to revoke the permits allowing the Keystone XL pipeline to be built on the day he takes office, according to multiple reports.

What was reported as a briefing note from Biden’s transition team said the action would be part of Biden’s climate change gestures, according to Canada’s CBC.

The words “Rescind Keystone XL pipeline permit” appear on a list of actions planned for Wednesday, the network reported.

The move was also reported by Politico, which cited sources it did not name.

Biden has long opposed the project, which is planned to carry oil from the oil sands in Alberta across the border and into Nebraska. Former President Barack Obama had denied a permit for the pipeline in 2015. Putting the project in motion was a key priority for President Donald Trump.

Stef Feldman, a policy director for Biden, said in a May statement to USA Today that Biden would “proudly stand in the Roosevelt Room again as President and stop it for good.”

The project had faced fierce opposition from many Native Americans who said it would pollute their lands.

 

Erin O’Toole, the leader of Canada’s Conservative Party, urged Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to lobby for the project.

“Keystone XL is a project of national significance that supports countless workers on both sides of the border,” O’Toole said in an emailed statement, according to CBC.

Dennis McConaghy, former executive of Alberta-based TC Energy, said he is not surprised the project is on the chopping block. TC Energy is the company leading the pipeline project.

“I have consistently said Biden would indulge in this rescinding of the permit immediately because it’s something he has to do largely to follow through for expectations of his political base and many of his donors,” McConaghy told CBC.

“Ideally the project should have been completed and put into operation during the Trump administration,” he said. “It’s a very audacious thing that is being done here by the Biden administration.”

Kirsten Hillman, Canada’s ambassador to the U.S., said the project is important to Canada.

“The Government of Canada continues to support the Keystone XL project and the benefits that it will bring to both Canada and the United States,” she said in a statement.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said the pipeline’s cancellation “would kill jobs on both sides of the border, weaken the critically important Canada-U.S. relationship and undermine U.S. national security by making the United States more dependent on OPEC oil imports in the future.”

GOP Leaders in D.C. Don’t Represent 74 Million Trump Voters

H/T Town Hall.

I look for many of these alleged G.O.P leaders to get primaried in the 2022 election.

The media lie. All the time. They lied about former President Barack Obama’s economy; they tried to make us believe the worst economy since the Great Depression was a great economy. Then they lied about President Donald Trump’s soaring economy. They tried to make us believe the best economy in 50 years, maybe the best economy ever for middle-class Americans, was a bad economy.

 

They lied about the Black Lives Matter riots. For months, we saw radical communists, Marxists and violent thugs riot, loot, burn, mug and murder while attacking police officers with bricks, pipes and Molotov cocktails. They burned entire downtown business districts to the ground, such as those in Minneapolis and Kenosha, Wisconsin. They burned police stations to the ground. They took over cities such as Portland and Seattle. They destroyed famous shopping districts such as Fifth Avenue in New York City and the Magnificent Mile in Chicago. They killed over 30 people. They caused over $2 billion in damage.

Yet liberal politicians and the liberal media ignored it all, or made believe it never happened, or made believe it was “peaceful,” or encouraged it, or supported it. In many cases, they did all of the above.

Yet none of them were ever banned, censored, vilified or impeached. Heck, we rewarded Kamala Harris, who encouraged and celebrated that violence, with the vice presidency of the United States.

Then came the Washington, D.C., unrest involving President Trump’s crowd. The liberal media blew that out of proportion into “the darkest day in American history,” even though it was a small case of unrest compared with “the BLM summer of hate, rioting and murder,” even though it may have involved antifa instigators, even though Capitol Police were captured on camera letting protestors into the building, even though it involved a few hundred people out of a crowd of a million or more, even though no one burned down or looted the Capitol. The media made believe it was Pearl Harbor.

Here’s the thing. Trump has had hundreds of rallies for six years now. Millions have attended, maybe 20 million-plus. And there’s never been one window broken, one property damaged, one person shot, one police officer attacked. Yet after one incident in D.C., it’s used as a trigger to ban and censor mention of the fact that the election was clearly stolen; to ban, censor and impeach President Trump; to ban and censor conservatives; and to label all 74 million Trump voters as “domestic terrorists.”

There’s the scam: Cover up hundreds of violent antifa and Black Lives Matter incidents, and blow out of proportion this one incident of violence at a conservative event involving around 170 people out of 74 million who made a bad decision in the heat of the moment. That’s assuming it wasn’t antifa causing the small amount of violence.

The key to this witch hunt was to use RINO (“Republican in name only”), Trump-hating leaders in D.C. as the cover to convince the world that even the GOP has abandoned and turned against Trump.

But it didn’t work. Because those famous GOP leaders don’t represent the people. They don’t represent 74 million Trump voters. They only represent the dirty, corrupt D.C. swamp.

The results are in. The support for President Trump is so overwhelming even liberal media and pollsters can’t hide the truth.

Trump-hating pollster Frank Luntz had to admit 91% of Trump voters would vote for him again and 78% of Trump voters believe the election was rigged and stolen.

A poll by the liberal Axios and Ipsos shows that 62% of Republicans support Trump’s belief that the election was stolen, while 69% don’t blame Trump for the Capitol violence.

But a much higher 91% of Trump voters support Trump’s contesting the election results. Ninety-six percent believe Trump makes the GOP a stronger party. Ninety-two percent want Trump to run again in 2024.

And guess who loses badly in the Trump-McConnell battle? Sixty-four percent of Republicans approve of Trump’s behavior over that of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Trump’s “America First” agenda is also still popular. Eighty-seven percent of Republicans and 63% of independent voters want companies to hire Americans before foreigners.

Democrats and the media keep trying to bury Trump and demoralize his supporters. I have to admit this plan was pretty remarkable. Their propaganda was intense. They came close. But in the end, they failed again.

Because they underestimated the hatred 74 million Trump voters have toward D.C. politicians — even Republican ones. We don’t trust them. We don’t like them. We don’t care what they say. The more they hate Trump, the more we like him.

GOP leaders only represent the D.C. swamp. They don’t represent 74 million Trump voters.

 

Cali Has Two Million Unused Vaccines

The O.K. Corral

While the state of California is battling an alarming number of daily Chinese Wuhan Virus deaths, there are two million vaccines sitting in offices, apparently unused.

While Californians are dying at a record rate from the coronavirus, with the number now reaching 525 per day, while the concomitant demand for vaccines to fight the virus soars, nearly two million doses of vaccines for the coronavirus are lying unused, “locked up in cold storage,” as the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

“California has among the lower rates of vaccine administration in the country, with only 38% of the 3.1 million doses delivered to the state actually being given so far — leaving close to 2 million doses apparently stored in freezers and awaiting recipients,” The Chronicle notes, adding that the state’s ineptitude in vaccinating its residents is “putting the nation’s largest state far behind West Virginia, the Dakotas and most other…
