HALF-FULL REPORT 07/08/22
Little Greta, the Left’s posterchild for greenie woketardism, is in a state of apoplectic fury this week. The cause is something to celebrate – yet it is but one of a host of signs that not only have we reached Peak Leftie Insanity that has engulfed us and so much of the world, but that we’re rapidly moving beyond it.
So sit back, get comfy and relax with a libation that best suits you. This will be a good time HFR.
As we get started, let me first thank Mike Ryan for his superb HFR last week. Mike is so bright, knowledgeable, and skilled on so many levels, while living a life of American moral virtue, that his insights are of unique value to TTP.
You may recall he began by hailing, “What a week – government power is devolving!” We have a lot more of that this week.
So what has got Little Greta’s pigtails in such a tangle? Because the EU has decided to designate nuclear power and natural gas as “green energy.” Ereyesterday (7/06), the EU Parliament failed to block it, the EU Council (27 presidents of EU countries) is sure to approve it by Monday (7/11), and with that, the Left’s demonization of “fossil fuels” evaporates.
Oh, and watch for Germany to keep its three nuclear power plants running (due to be shut down by Leftie pressure by end of this year), and even to restart its three others that are mothballed.
Now, what do you suppose this is?
It’s a coal power plant in Gelsenkirchen, Germany near Dusseldorf. Germany is rapidly increasing its energy production with the most eco-despised fossil fuel of all – coal.
“Unimaginably,” Austria is restarting its Mellach coal power plant near Graz. Italy, France, and Holland are restarting theirs. It’s happening all over Europe, “climate change” be damned. Greta must be on the verge of seppuku.
And who do we have to thank for the death of the climate change hoax in Europe? None other than the recipient of the 2022 NATO Salesman of the Year, Vlad Putin.
By shutting off Russian natgas that Europe was so dependent upon, Pooty has cut off his johnson to spite himself. Everyone in Europe realizes now that Trump was right. They all laughed – especially the Germans – when Trump warned them about dependency on Russian gas at his UN General Assembly Address in 2018. No one is laughing now.
Nor are they bending to Pooty either, realizing Russia is utterly undependable – and a warmongering barbarian to boot. Thus they are in a mad scramble to produce energy with anything but Ruzz gas, with giving nary a fig if the world will be 3 degrees warmer 100 years from now.
Result: Russia’s one-trick pony economy dies, and so does the Climate Change Hoax. That’s a two-fer for the history books.
By the way, Pooty’s war is not doing so great about now. The difference is the HIMARS now able to accurately target Russian ammunition depots and command posts with mass casualties. Plus the guerrilla war is now unstoppable: Putin Has a Problem: Ukraine’s Guerrilla War Against Russia Is Now In Full Swing.
The contempt our Pentagon has regarding the Russian is summed up by Jim Mattis: Former Defense Secretary James Mattis Rips Putin’s ‘Pathetic’ Military Performance In Ukraine: ‘We’re Watching Russia Wither Before Our Eyes’.
Speaking of pathetic – here’s a picture of it. Look at that empty soul behind those vacant eyes.
How about this word salad of hers in Highland Park IL regarding the July Fourth shooting tragedy there?
“We’ve got to take this stuff seriously, as seriously as you are because you have been forced to take this seriously. The whole nation should understand and have a level of empathy to understand that this could happen anywhere any people in any community. And we should stand together and speak out about why it’s got to stop.”
Not a word from the Word Salad Queen about how to stop the even greater tragedy in adjacent Chicago on July 4th weekend. The criminally insane Highland Park gunman killed seven and injured 30. Criminally insane Chicago gunmen killed eight and injured 70.
No, all she could talk about was Congress banning “assault rifles” in a state that already has strict gun control laws – that clearly don’t stop gunmen in Chicago.
Something is wrong with this woman. It’s not just that she’s stupid. She’s not a drunk as she doesn’t slur her words. Maybe she’s stoned all the time, she does act and speak like that. Who knows? What everyone knows is that she has absolutely no business being President.
Yet, as Ed Morrissey observes yesterday (7/07), Dems’ New Midterm Strategy: Throw Grandpa Joe Under The Bus?
The Dems know they are in for an electoral collapse in November, and are taking their anger on Joe. Ed followed up this morning (7/08) with, Dems Governors: Biden’s In Over His Head, Out Of Ideas, And Out Of Time.
And that was before he’d seen this report later this morning: Joe Biden Sold Nearly One Million Barrels from U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve to CCP-Owned Oil Company Linked to Hunter Biden Firm.
“In April, Biden’s Department of Energy announced the nearly one million barrel sale to Unipec, which is the trading arm of Sinopec. Sinopec is wholly owned and operated by the Chinese Communist Party.
Hunter Biden is connected to Sinopec through BHR Partners, a private equity firm he cofounded in 2013. BHR bought a $1.7 billion stake in Sinopec Marketing in 2015. Biden at one point owned a 10 percent stake in BHR Partners through his wholly owned firm, Skaneateles, LLC. Chinese corporate records show he still has a stake in the company.”
Nothing should be holding the Dems back now, given their desire to rid themselves of the Biden albatross, to tell Joe he has to resign and retire to his basement or else he’s going to Leavenworth in an orange jump suit along with his son for criminal corruption.
Problem is… now Kamala would be behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office. They may have to bite the bullet, though, because this Sinogate or whatever else it’s called cannot be ignored. It will destroy the Bidens as it should, and as it must for the Dems, for if it is not done quickly, it will destroy the Dems as well.
Take a quick glance at the linked stories about Ukraine above. They may be analogous to what’s emerging now in the US. As HIMARS artillery is destroying Russian military operational capacity, so SCOTUS is doing the same to Democrat operational capacity regarding abortion, gun control, and the administrative state.
And the increasing success of Ukrainian guerrilla activity may portent something similar here as well.
This strange granite structure, 19 feet tall and weighing 237,000 pounds, no longer exists. Built in 1980 some 90 miles east of Atlanta by a small group of anonymous people calling themselves Christian who were anything but, it was called the Georgia Guidestones.
At 4am early Wednesday morning (7/06), someone skilled at demolition blew it up with high explosives – so much so that county work crews had to demolish the entire thing. A Georgia District Attorney denounced this as an “act of domestic terrorism.” I prefer to look at it as guerrilla patriotism.
Just as Ukrainians are fighting Russian Nazis whose goal is the extermination of the Ukrainian people, so we Americans are in a mortal struggle with Eco Nazis whose goal is the extermination of humanity (excepting themselves of course) and us in particular.
The Georgia Guidestones First Inscription explicitly expressed this. It reads:
Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
There are some 7.5 billion people on Earth today. This statement is thus advocating the extermination of seven billion human beings. This is a degree of moral depravity that fully justifies it being deemed “Satanic.” Destroying it was a moral act. Another example of our moving past and beyond Peak Leftie Insanity.
We close with one further example, as excruciatingly funny as deliciously skewering woketards.
We refer, of course, to the just released Beavis and Butt-Head Do The Universe.
You’ll recall the MTV cartoon series from 1993-1997, Beavis and Butt-Head, two stupidly hilarious or hilariously stupid delinquent teenagers, along with the 1996 animated feature film, Beavis and Butt-Head Do America.
Well, their creator Mike Judge is back twenty-five years later. The most-talked about scenes in Beavis and Butt-head Do The Universe are when the delinquents are transported from 1998 to 2022 (right now) and end up in a gender-studies university class where they learn about white supremacy.
Watch what happens when they take it literally:
Released just two weeks ago, BBDTU already has a Tomatometer score of 96%. All of what we’ve been discussing in this HFR and what Mike did last week are descriptions of the death throes of Wokeism, the Climate Change Hoax, and Peak Leftie Insanity.
As any hunter knows, a dying raging beast can still be dangerous, often more than ever. We have four months to the day (November 8) until a stake is driven into the beast’s heart, and then eight more weeks (January 3) to lock it in its casket.
Then begins anew the never-ending task of making sure it stays there.
Today, however, we can relax and take time to savor the moment that America is becoming America again.
I began this HFR with thanks to Mike Ryan. Let me close with thanks to others who make TTP so uniquely valuable – Dr. Joel Wade and Skye. Nowhere else but on TTP can you avail yourself of their wisdom and guidance, and I implore you to take advantage of it.
And nowhere else can you find such thoughtful commentary as on the TTP Forum. Every week there are nuggets of insight to be found there. I am so grateful to you all.
