Consumer economic sentiment sharply drops, expectations of inflation sharply rise.  Most consumers expect the inflation to be only temporary, but they will find out the hard way by the next election:

So-called bipartisan infrastructure bill contains green decarbonization mandates hidden in its 2701 pages:

Infrastructure Bill Includes State-Mandated Carbon Reduction Programs

Clean green power Down Under goes very dirty – note that they couldn’t extinguish the grid battery fire, but could only try to prevent it from spreading while it burned itself out.  That is inherent with lithium ion batteries because they contain both the fuel and the oxidizer, so once they catch fire, they cannot be extinguished.  Note that the fire did spread to an adjacent battery module; obviously, Tesla didn’t provide enough battery module spacing and isolation.  Now imagine what would happen if thousands of tons of those modules burned:

I think that this is a major part of the ‘Crat’s strategy for 2022 – because they sure won’t be running on their accomplishments:

Private businesses are not subject to the First Amendment – unless they act as “government agents.”   If the business works with the government to censor particular types of speech protected by the First Amendment, it is black letter law that this transforms that business into a government agent and makes that business subject to the First Amendment.

Here is an official admission that social media platforms have chosen to become government agents, and hence subject to the First Amendment. A skilled First Amendment attorney could now bury them with multi-billion dollar class action civil rights lawsuits:

Perhaps the CDC read the June 2021 SCOTUS decision as the handwriting on the wall; if they extended their eviction moratorium, the 5th Amendment’s Takings Clause could put a  $100 billion dollar hit on the Fed’s budget:

Nope!  The CDC says, “We don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution!”:

‘Biden Took An Oath To Uphold The Constitution, Not Violate It’: Turley Opines On CDC’s Revised Eviction Moratorium

 

What this doctor says about cloth masks versus N-95 respirators is all too true – and the CDC has known this since at least 2018.  (Beware, however, of KN-95 Chinese look-alikes; many are no more effective than ordinary cloth.):

The latest USAF hypersonic missile test failed again.  There have been only two tests so far this year.  The USAF refers to this test tempo as “rapid prototyping”.  I call BS! When I was working on Minuteman, we were doing more like a test every week – with a much larger and more expensive missile.  Yes, this is a technically difficult problem, and at this pace, anything that they develop will be obsolescent before it is operational.

Of course, Xiden isn’t going to speed things up.  Both Russia and China have operational hypersonic missiles.  Our carrier groups have no adequate defenses against them (such as rail guns or high energy lasers), either.  Hypersonic missiles make aircraft carriers (without adequate defense systems) the new battleships – big fat expensive vulnerable targets…

Blue versus Blue; Pelosi calls for Gov. Cuomo to resign – for touching several women without their express consent – not for murdering literally thousands of nursing, assisted living, and retirement home residents with his executive order requiring that nursing, assisted living, and retirement homes re-admit recovering but still infectious Fauci’s virus patients:

Pelosi Calls Upon Disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo to Resign

 

Cuomo finally under criminal investigation – but not for thousands of counts of negligent homicide:

More Blue versus Blue:

It’s a Blue versus Blue pile on – but not a whisper about the thousands of deaths caused by Cuomo’s executive order:

Times Up’ Calls for NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo to ‘Resign Immediately’

 

Cuomo’s actions regarding several women were apparently both wrong and illegal, but nowhere near as serious as the thousands of deaths resulting from his executive order.  I think that the ‘Crats desperate to to get rid of Gov. Cuomo before those deaths become an issue in the next election:
