Anthony Fauci Please Pick Up the White Courtesy Phone.

President 46* announced today that every adult in the US will be allowed to receive a COVID-19 vaccine by April 19 — shaving about two weeks off his May 1 deadline, a date probably chosen for him because it would be easy to remember, for states to make all adults eligible.  Good Jobs Joe!

Just so happens, it's exactly what someone was ruthlessly excoriated for saying by the political virus experts and Jeff Bezos' personal troopers of his 'Guardians of Truth'.  A quick search on the Google Box show nary a peep now from The Washington Post.

COVID-1984

Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer

At first I wanted to give everyone involved in the insanity of the left regarding the Wuhan virus the benefit of the doubt, we didn’t know what this was, and we were trying to take precautions to prevent the spread of a virus we knew little about.  With the new data coming out, and the revelations of the WHO being an arm of the Chinese government, and the fact that none of the numbers can be trusted from government organizations I have thrown up my hands over the reaction to this pandemic.

I swear it’s like there is a contest among the elite to see what stupid things they can get their citizens to do using scare tactics and a complicit unquestioning media.  Whether it’s wearing hats with pool noodles attached to keep “social distance” or it’s walking in the equivalent of a baby stroller to go to a bar in Maryland, this is asinine and almost reads like a psychological operation to see just how much you can demean American citizens before they finally snap.  We know that the Democrat’s prospects in November are grim, which is evidenced by Joe Biden being kept in his basement unless he is appearing for a scripted, kabuki theater prop, but I never thought they would take advantage of a contagious virus and brazenly try to destroy the economy just to get "Their Guy" elected.  

Americans are trying to understand the absolute illogical implementation of these “lock-downs” that governors are imposing on their citizens.  Whether it’s that they had to close down their small business, yet hundreds of people can pile into your local Wal-mart every hour, or that you are told that you’re not an essential worker, but somehow the guy who sells weed at a dispensary is. Americans have been remarkably patient with the government in trying to help their fellow citizens, but the mask has come off and everyone can now see that the majority of panic porn coming from the mainstream media, and the continued extensions from liberal governors is obviously more a mea culpa over them telling everyone they will LITERALLY DIE if they go outside.


The reporting coming out today about Donald Trump taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventative is proof positive that the liberal media will destroy any prospect of this ending unless it’s on their terms.  Not only have they found a vector to funnel billions of dollars into their liberal pet projects,  the “pandemic” is now an excuse to leverage big government against Americans for things like climate change and universal healthcare.  Military personal are given malaria drugs every time they deployed as an anti-viral, and as far as I know there's no media reports of deaths, or of hundreds of thousands of contractors who received the exact same medication for the exact same purpose, so the media can stop lying to the American people with what seems to be the intent of exacerbating the pandemic as much as possible.

Unfortunately, Americans have shown the Left a road map on how they can implement sweeping measures to try and inflict their political whims with little legislative process. We need to ensure that one of the lessons we learned from this pandemic is that any chance that the Left has to seize power and violate American’s civil liberties they will. We need to make sure that we don’t become accustomed to the government changing the American way of life, and then perpetually lying to our faces to try and keep us scared.

Dems Reach New Heights of 'Magical Thinking'


What's with the left? Why have they so abandoned logic and reason that not only do they contradict virtually everything they stood for just ten years ago, their spokespeople having gone so far off the deep end as to embrace the incoherent proposals of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and to encourage the extraordinarily bizarre and increasingly hysterical narrative of Jussie Smollett? It is as if the Democratic Party has decided, once and for all, to adopt the psychological concept of "Magical Thinking" as its modus vivendi.

Democrats have been headed in the direction of magical thinking for some time and, in fact, have been well over the line since the advent of Trump. Remember, moments after the inauguration, thousands of women marching through the streets of our major cities wearing pudenda hats because something terrible was about to happen to their sex? Nothing did. That was only the beginning. Calling this Trump Derangement Syndrome is an understatement because it's more psychologically disturbing than a mere political catchphrase can capture. With Smollett and AOC, this actual psychopathology -- because that's what it is -- has reached new heights, in an apotheosis of magical thinking.

In the case of Smollett, it was not only assumed his "attack" was a "hate crime," it was actively wished for as such. Many on the left seriously willed it to be hate to validate their imaginary (i. e. magical) conception of the other side as evil and racist.

In the case of AOC, her Seventh-day Adventist-style "end times" warning of a world ending in twelve years should have been met with a bit of skepticism. There are useful idiots in every generation and doubtless always will be. What is scary is how many people want to believe her, how many are so invested in this form of magical thinking they are willing to abandon their critical faculties.

The media themselves are enmeshed in their own version of magical thinking. The Smollett affair burst on the scene only days after the supposed racism of the Catholic boys against a Native American was disproven, but that message was apparently forgotten in an instant, assuming it was ever received. But the left may have gone so far into the magical realm this time that the old silent majority, what Kurt Schlichter calls "the Normals," may be shaking their heads and starting to act. Things are beginning to backfire, sometimes with surprising speed. - Roger Simon - PJM

Lawyers For Nick Sandmann Begin Their Pursuit of Justice.


The media is used to spreading lies about misinformation about who or whatever they want with absolutely no repercussions what so ever. But it looks like for a change someone is finally taking them on and attempting to publicly hold them accountable.

The lawyers representing Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and his family said Friday they have sent letters to media outlets, individual journalists, celebrities and Catholic organizations putting them on notice as the first step in possible libel and defamation lawsuits. They promise that justice will be served for their client, who was viciously smeared by the media over an encounter with Native American activist Nathan Phillips.

The attorneys say they prepared and sent out documentation preservation letters addressed to organizations and individuals they believe may have defamed or libeled Nick with false reporting. Among the high profile recipients are:
The NY Times, Maggie Haberman, Washington Post, CNN, NPR, Savannah Guthrie, Andrea Mitchell, Joy Reid, Chuck Todd, The Hill, The Atlantic, Kathy Griffin & GQMagazine. 
Elizabeth Warren, The Guardian, TMZ, Capitol Hill Publishing Corp., Diocese of Covington, Diocese of Lexington, Archdiocese of Louisville, Diocese of Baltimore, Erin Burnett, Ana Cabrera, Amanda Watts. David Brooks, Isaac Stanley-Becker, Kristine Phillips, Kurt Eichenwald, Bill Maher, HBO, and Time Warner Media, Alyssa Milano, Jim Carrey and Heavy com.
After a review, the lawyers concluded they have a good faith basis to sue certain organizations. "We want to change the conversation. We don't want this to happen again." He went on to say the lesson is that the media cannot state as fact things that aren't true. There was a rush by the media to believe what it wanted to believe versus what actually happened.

Win or lose, we all should applaud this effort to hold the media accountable. The same media and celebrity that defended David Hogg from criticism for being a just a kid, viciously attacked another for wearing a hat.....

He Plays the Pitiful Political Hack & Shabby Radical to the End.


The Spectator
"The real story about John Brennan’s security clearance is not that he lost it under a Republican president, but that he even had one at all. One of the peculiar footnotes of Brennan’s history is that he obtained a position in Bill Casey’s CIA after having supported the Soviet-backed American Communist Party at the height of the Cold War. Had Casey conducted the polygraph test in which Brennan admitted to voting for Soviet proxy Gus Hall in 1976, Casey would have tossed him out of the office. Casey hated communists. Whoever hired Brennan must have been a Deep State holdover from the Carter years. 
All of Brennan’s propaganda about “Trump-Russian collusion” is just sour grapes over the loss of his preferred candidate, Hillary, for whom he was desperately auditioning by launching an unfounded investigation into her opponent, and a remnant of his pro-Soviet nostalgia. Brennan’s much-vaunted “conscience” was pricked not by Soviet leaders who slaughtered their own people and enslaved hapless nations but by a Russian leader who — brace yourselves — isn’t keen on postmodern Western propaganda in favor of gay rights.
Brennan prided himself on his “commitment” to alternative lifestyles and would pad down the halls of the CIA in a “rainbow lanyard,” as Bill Gertz once reported. Putin’s refusal to hold “gay pride” parades in Moscow infuriated Brennan. He also didn’t care for Putin’s unsentimental approach to Islamic terrorism. Brennan defined jihad as “self-improvement” and lobbied Obama to embrace the fanatics of the Muslim Brotherhood. Brennan got his wish when the Obama-backed Morsi rose to power in Egypt and wrecked it. Michael Flynn thought that Brennan was a PC jackass of the first order, in thrall to the Muslims with whom he had traveled to Mecca during his stint as station chief in Saudi Arabia. 
The only criticism that Trump deserves for yanking Brennan’s security clearance is its delay. He should have done it on day one. Brennan was a security risk from the start — an anti-American radical of staggering proportions who should never have been permitted within a hundred-mile radius of Langley." - Read More

To Crunch or Not to Crunch. That is the Question

Doritos New Low Noise-High Performance 'Lady-Friendly' Chips

Ya know for far too long, ladies like myself have had to sit by the wayside as we watch our men enjoying the delicious flavored tortilla chips known to the world as Doritos. As much as we might try to enjoy them ourselves, certain things have always gotten in the way. The crunching for one, is far too loud!

As a woman, I pride myself on being as accommodating as humanly possible, and “too loud” crunching could interrupt a man when he is explaining to me why I am wrong, or while watching his favorite TV show. 

How can one be seen and not heard with all that CRUNCHING going on? Chomp chomp chomp! So unladylike! And the powder! Don’t even get me started on the powder. Why, my favorite pair of white gloves is all but ruined with red-gold nacho cheese stains from the last time I attempted to eat some!

But finally, the good people at Doritos have an answer to my womanly woes! They are now creating a lady-friendly version of their classic chips that will crunch less and be less “messy,” thereby preventing us from ruining our good white gloves or — heaven forbid — being compelled to lick our fingers. The chips will also be smaller in size — so that they may fit more comfortably in our tiny ladyhands and fit comfortably inside our tiny ladymouths — and will come in a package that we can fit inside our purses for discreet on-the-go snacking.

PepsiCo’s female lady global chief executive Indra Nooyi just gets us:
“When you eat out of a flex bag — one of our single-serve bags — especially as you watch a lot of the young guys eat the chips, they love their Doritos, and they lick their fingers with great glee, and when they reach the bottom of the bag they pour the little broken pieces into their mouth, because they don’t want to lose that taste of the flavour, and the broken chips in the bottom,” Indra Nooyi, global chief executive at PepsiCo said in an interview with Freakonomics Radio. “Women would love to do the same, but they don’t. They don’t like to crunch too loudly in public. And they don’t lick their fingers generously and they don’t like to pour the little broken pieces and the flavour into their mouth.”
This sounds really lovely and I personally am quite excited about all this. It’s great to be a woman these days. Hey, we can even be Colonel Sanders! And flavored tortilla chips are now no longer only the province of men, or just another incitement for lovemakin'. And I say that's a win Baby!

Gevera Revolvo Calls BS on San Juan Mayor’s False Blame: ‘I’m here. Who is dying?’

The mayor of San Juan, Puerto Rico may have bitten off a little more than she can chew by politicizing the Trump administration’s Hurricane Maria relief efforts. When not busy cranking out nifty custom T-shirts and hats by candlelight, Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz has made a name for herself complaining about the people who have come to her island to help with recovery efforts.

The mayor is all the rage in political circles because of her driving criticism of President Donald Trump, and does she ever play up to the billing, appearing on CNN with a T-shirt emblazoned with the words “help us, we are dying.” The anti-Trump media only needs ONE person to trash the president and they flock to the political stooge like moths to a light.  And as expected, CNN was only too happy to help disseminate the anti-Trump political narrative Cruz is pushing


But Angel Perez, the mayor of nearby Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, said the Trump administration has been fantastic in providing hurricane-relief aid, and suggested San Juan Mayor might better serve her city if she actually did her job by attending FEMA.

Fox News Correspondent & Reporter and Attorney Geraldo Rivera, who’s Puerto Rican, is on the ground in San Juan. Rivera saw things differently too. “On the ground I see the suffering-but feel deeply that attacking @realDonaldTrump for the ravages of nature &neglect is politicizing tragedy,” he tweeted.

Rivera caught up with Mayor Cruz, without her custom-made T-shirt and said she was “being partisan in her sharp unfair attacks,” although he did not agree with President Trump’s most recent assessment of her criticism he point blank told the mayor:“I’ve been traveling around, I don’t see people dying.  I spoke to the doctors, they say they saw 53 patients and they had a person who was septic, but nobody dying.” 


San Juan ‘s mayor has been all over CNN and MSNBC bashing Trump but doesn’t bother to attend critical meetings to help residents get the aid they desperately need. But what the hey, for the dems and the media, its too good of a fake news story to pass up...........

Even Some Longtime Media Watchers Now Crying Foul



Media Have Struck a Deal to Go After Trump 
"There is a common expression in the media that there are “some facts too good to check.” It is used in jest to reflect how you sometimes hate to give up a great story for the real facts. That tension was well on display as media seemed to tie itself into knots to avoid admitting that there are legitimate questions raised by the “unmasking” allegations surrounding the actions of Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice." 
"Reporters are now so committed to refuting Trump that they are refuting actual stories. The loss of objectivity in the response to the Rice story reflects a broader problem of the press focusing so hard on Trump that it has loss sight of its own bearings." - Jonathan Turley

Here’s What Voter Fraud Looks Like in 23 States







By Justin Caruso -
Reprinted with permission of the Daily Caller News Foundation:


Republican candidate Donald Trump is making accusations that the election is “rigged” against him, even suggesting the possibility of voter fraud. Trump leveled this accusation in a tweet early Monday morning that read, “Of course there is large scale voter fraud happening on and before election day. Why do Republican leaders deny what is going on? So naive!”

Many others strongly push back against claims of voter fraud. The Brennan Center for Justice says that voter fraud is “myth” and the Washington Post maintains that voter fraud isn’t a problem. As the debate rages, here are examples of voter fraud in 23 different states, as compiled by the Daily Caller News Foundation

Virginia - Just a few weeks ago, Harrisonburg, Va., claimed about 20 voter applications were submitted for dead people. A voter registration group called “HarrisonburgVOTES” is responsible for the applications, and the group is reportedly headed by Joe Fitzgerald, chairman of the Democratic Committee in Harrisonburg.

An investigation has been launched.

Colorado - An investigation in Colorado in September, 2016, revealed that dead people were voting in multiple elections. “We do believe there were several instances of potential vote fraud that occurred,” Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williamstold local news station CBS4.  An egregious example of illegal voter fraud in Colorado was that of Sara Sosa, a woman who died in 2009, yet “voted” in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Michigan -Two Democratic officials in Michigan, Jason Bauer and Mike McGuinness, were convicted in 2012 for involvement in an election fraud scheme. The two men attempted to put a fake “Tea Party” candidate on the ballot to split the conservative vote.

California - In only three counties in California’s 2016 presidential primary, there were reportedly 194 people who voted twice. Some voters were voting once by mail, then going to polls and voting again, according to the East Bay Times. It is possible that even more mail votes were submitted fraudulently, but only 194 people actually voted in person after having a mail ballot submitted for them, leading to them being caught.

Missouri - The initial results of a Democratic primary in St. Louis this year were scrapped after absentee ballots were improperly recorded. The first election, which had shown incumbent Penny Hubbard winning the race, was re-done. In the special election that followed, Hubbard’s opponent, Bruce Franks, Jr., decisively won.

Florida - Deisy Penton de Cabrera was convicted in 2013 of possessing more than two ballots which belong to other voters. Cabrera was found with 12 absentee ballots of other people and was keeping a list of elderly Hispanic voters, many whom were deaf, blind, or had Alzheimer’s.

Kentucky - In Magoffin County, Ky., three people were convicted of felony voter fraud in 2016. Magoffin County Magistrate Gary Risner, Deputy County Clerk Larry Shepard, and Tami Jo Risner were discovered buying votes.

During the case, the court heard witnesses testify to being paid $50 to vote for a slate in 2014.

North Carolina - Pasco Parker, a Tennessee resident, pleaded guilty to felony voter fraud in North Carolina in 2015 after he voted in person in Tennessee, then sent in absentee ballots to Florida and North Carolina.  A North Carolina watchdog group called the “Voter Integrity Project”uncovered Parker’s fraud.

Arkansas - Democratic State Rep. Hudson Hallum, along with his father Ken Hallum and two campaign workers, were caught bribing absentee voters and tampering with ballots. They pleaded guilty and were sentenced in 2013.

Georgia - A Georgia man named Mohammad Shafiq fraudulently tampered with voter registrations during a 2012 election. Shafiq was convicted and sentenced in 2015.

Indiana - Former Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White was convicted of felony charges in 2012 after lying about his address to keep collecting a paycheck from the Fishers Town Council.

Pennsylvania - In early 2015, Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth Carol Aichele announced, “there’s potential voter fraud in Pennsylvania,” going on to say that around 731 people may have double voted in Pennsylvania.

Arizona - Arizona woman Carol Hannah voted in both Arizona and Colorado in 2010. Hannah was convicted of voter fraud in Colorado and lost her right to vote.

Iowa - An Iowa woman named Mayra Alejandra Lopez Morales pleaded guilty and was convicted in a voter fraud case in 2014. Morales, not a citizen of the United States, registered and voted in the 2012 election.

Connecticut - Former Connecticut State Rep. Christina Ayala was convicted in 2015 for election law violations. Ayala voted several times in districts where she did not live.

Kansas - Michael L. Hannum pled guilty and was convicted in Kansas for voting in both Nebraska and Kansas in 2012.

Louisiana - Louisiana man Stanley Leger pleaded guilty to buying votes in a mayoral race. Leger reportedly paid mentally impaired people to vote for a candidate he worked for.

Maryland - Wendy Rosen, a 2012 Democratic congressional candidate in Maryland, brought her campaign to an end after revelations surfaced that she voted in 2006 and 2008 in both Maryland and Florida. Rosen pleaded guilty to illegal voting in 2013.

Alaska - A Mexican man named Rogelio Mejorada-Lopez was registered to vote in Alaska and voted in several elections. He was caught and convicted in 2005.

Wisconsin - Robert Munroe, a Wisconsin resident, was convicted in 2016 of voting several times in elections throughout 2011 and 2012, and even voted twice, in two different states in the presidential election of 2012. Munroe blamed the voting on being in a “fugue state,” though several emails and texts shared in court show him encouraging friends and family to vote and donate money to candidates.

Alabama - Three women in Alabama were found guilty of various voter fraud charges in 2015 after tampering with numerous absentee ballots in a City Commissioner race.

Massachusetts - Enrico Villamaino, a Republican candidate for state representative pleaded guilty and was convicted in 2013 for various charges in voter fraud in East Longmeadow, Mass.

Ohio - In Cincinnati, Ohio, a poll worker named Melowese Richardson was convicted on four counts of illegal voting in 2013. Richardson voted twice in the 2012 presidential election, and voted three other times for her sister who is in a coma. During the trial, Richardson suggested her prosecution may be because she is black and supporting Obama.

Fraudulent or Invalid Voter Registrations Enough to Tip an Election, Easily


Sara Sosa who died in 2009 cast ballots in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013. Care to guess for which party she's was registered with?

This week, liberals have been repeating their frequent claim that voter fraud doesn't exist. A recent Salon article argues that “voter fraud just isn't a problem in Pennsylvania,” despite evidence to the contrary. Another article argues that voter fraud is entirely in the imagination of those who use voter ID laws to deny minorities the right to vote.
Yet as the election approaches, more and more cases of voter fraud are beginning to surface. In Colorado, multiple instances were found of dead people attempting to vote. Stunningly, “a woman named Sara Sosa who died in 2009 cast ballots in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.” In Virginia, it was found that nearly 20 voter applications were turned in under the names of dead people.
In Texas, authorities are investigating criminals who are using the technique of “vote harvesting” to illegally procure votes for their candidates. “Harvesting” is the practice of illegally obtaining the signatures of valid voters in order to vote in their name without their consent for the candidate(s) the criminal supports.
These are just some instances of voter fraud we know about. It would be silly to assume cases that have been discovered are the only cases of fraud. Indeed according to a Pew Research report from February 2012, one in eight voter registrations are “significantly inaccurate or no longer valid.” Since there are 146 million Americans registered to vote, this translates to a stunning 18 million invalid voter registrations on the books. Further, “More than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters, and approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.” Numbers of this scale obviously provide ripe opportunity for fraud.
Yet in spite of all this, a report by the Brennan Center at New York Univeristy claims voter fraud is a myth.

Petition Begins to Remove AC from State Department

John F'ing Kerry (he fought in Vietnam ya know)

It's High Time Our Leaders Lead By Example

Recently our illustrious Secretary of State John Kerry announced to a gathering of world dignitaries almost as smart as he is that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State. Kerry was in Vienna to amend the 1987 Montreal Protocol that would phase out hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, from basic household and commercial appliances.

“As we were working together on the challenge of [ISIS] and terrorism.  It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we–you–are doing here right now is of equal importance because it has the ability to literally save life on the planet itself.”
After John Kerry announced that Air Conditioners are as big a threat as ISIS,  a petition began to get him to put his money where his big mouth is.

From Change.org: 

WHEREAS, Secretary of State John F. Kerry has suggested that air conditioners are as big a threat as ISIS, and
WHEREAS, it is the duty of our elected and appointed government officials to lead by example,
THEREFORE, we call upon the U.S. Department of State to remove air conditioning from all property that the Department owns, rents, or otherwise employs, including but not limited to embassies, consulates, office buildings, etc., all vehicles owned and/or operated by the Department, and any other property, real or movable, owned, rented, or otherwise employed by the Department.

Al Gore and Attorney Generals Launch Campaign Against Speech Criminals

Independent Sentinel - We have our first attack against “climate change” deniers by one of the 16 AGs who have formed a group specifically to go after the free speech of anyone who disagrees with their extreme views on climate change.

If you recall former Vice President and global warming guru Al Gore and 16 Attorneys General, calling themselves the “AGs United for Clean Power”, announced at a press conference last week that they will criminalize climate change denial by corporations.

This is meant to squelch dissent and free speech.

The first volley was lobbed by the US Attorney General for the Virgin Islands, one of the sixteen, and he is going after a powerful think tank, Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI). Are they our new thought police?


The CEI website describes their organization as a non-profit public policy organization dedicated to advancing the principles of limited government, free enterprise, and individual liberty. Our mission is to promote both freedom and fairness by making good policy good politics. We make the uncompromising case for economic freedom because we believe it is essential for entrepreneurship, innovation, and prosperity to flourish.

This is particularly shocking because they are going after a think tank, not an oil or gas company. Think about that!
The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) today denounced a subpoena from Attorney General Claude E. Walker of the U.S. Virgin Islands that attempts to unearth a decade of the organization’s materials and work on climate change policy. This is the latest effort in an intimidation campaign to criminalize speech and research on the climate debate, led by New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and former Vice President Al Gore.
The subpoena requests a decade’s worth of communications, emails, statements, drafts, and other documents regarding CEI’s work on climate change and energy policy, including private donor information. It demands that CEI produce these materials from 20 years ago, from 1997-2007, by April 30, 2016.
New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman told the gaggle of press that “The bottom line is simple: Climate change is real” and if companies are committing fraud by “lying” about the dangers of climate change, they will “pursue them to the fullest extent of the law.”

It's OK to Pollute, If It's In The Name of Green Energy

 The Ivanpah solar project burns enough natural gas to be required to take
part in the state's Cap and Trade program to reduce emissions.  

Just goes to show, if there are cronies to enrich, more Government control and a left wing agenda to forward, conservation and  environmentalism mean very little, if anything.

A solar power plant at the center of the Obama administration’s push to reduce America’s carbon footprint by using millions of taxpayer dollars to promote green energy has its own carbon pollution problem.
The Ivanpah plant in the Mojave Desert uses natural gas as a supplementary fuel. Data from the California Energy Commission show that the plant burned enough natural gas in 2014 – its first year of operation – to emit more than 46,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide.
That’s nearly twice the pollution threshold for power plants or factories in California to be required to participate in the state’s cap-and-trade program to reduce carbon emissions.
The same amount of natural gas burned at a conventional power plant would have produced enough electricity to meet the annual needs of 17,000 California homes – or roughly a quarter of the Ivanpah plant’s total electricity projection for 2014.
The plant, which was developed by Oakland-based BrightSource Energy, was approved in 2010 amid questions about its cost to taxpayers and the facility’s effect on the desert environment.
The U.S. Department of Energy granted Ivanpah $1.6 billion in loan guarantees. As a green-energy project, it also qualified for more than $600 million in federal tax credits.
Just before the project broke ground, President Barack Obama praised it in his weekly radio address:
"With projects like this one, and others across this country, we are staking our claim to continued leadership in the new global economy. And we’re putting Americans to work producing clean, home-grown American energy that will help lower our reliance on foreign oil and protect our planet for future generations."
And former Interior Secretary Ken Salazar freed up large expanses of public land for the plant despite environmentalists’ concerns about wildlife habitat and the loss of open space.
David Lamfrom, desert project manager of the National Parks Conservation Association, said information about the amount of natural gas used at Ivanpah shows that the plant is essentially a hybrid operation that requires both fossil fuel and sunshine to make electricity.
He said he doubts the project would have gone forward if it had been billed a hybrid plant.
“It feels like a bait and switch,” Lamfrom said. “This project was held up as a model of innovation. We didn’t sign up for greener energy. We signed up for green energy.”

In an effort to curb global warming, The Cow of the Future Project begins a quest to create the “Star Athlete” of the bovine world.



Defy the Narrative

If you were thinking I made that up, I didn’t. The story, complete with strap-on gas tanks for cows is here.
“A White House climate initiative has boosted a quixotic search for the “cow of the future”, a next-generation creature whose greenhouse gas emissions would be cut by anti-methane pills, burp scanners and gas backpacks.
Carbon dioxide from fossil fuels is the primary man-made gas warming the planet, but methane is far more potent and the US’s biggest source of it is its 88m cattle, which produce more than landfill sites, natural gas leaks or hydraulic fracturing.
The Obama administration’s launch last month of a plan to curb methane emissions has given fresh relevance to climate-friendly technologies for cattle that range from dietary supplements and DNA gut tests to strap-on gas tanks.....”
