The United States will auction nearly one million acres off the Alaskan coast for new oil and gas drilling in December, mandated in the so-called “Inflation” Reduction Act (IRA).
The United States Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), inside the Department of Interior, will put hundreds of thousands of acres off Alaska’s southcentral coast up for auction on December 30 for new oil and gas drilling projects. The lease sale has to be completed by the end of the year to comply with the IRA, which was added to the piece of legislation to win support from West Virginia Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin.
The auction sale will be of approximately 958,202 acres in Alaska’s Cook Inlet. Bloomberg reported the department estimated that over the lifetime of the lease sales, the area could produce nearly 200 million barrels of crude oil and 300 billion cubic feet of natural gas. However, the estimate would only be accurate if any drilling actually occurs.
I don’t think Biden will run in 2024. I just don’t see it happening. First off, he’s 80-years-old today and looks and sounds like he’s 99-years-old, at best. What will he be like 2 years from now? My God, I shudder to think. The man will be wearing a bib and drooling all over himself by that time. And we all know Biden has dementia or some “brain issues.” He’s a bumbling fool. I am sorry to be so blunt, and perhaps callous, but at this point, I am over it. Dementia Joe and his team of commies are destroying this country and the lives of Americans, they deserve all the mockery we can muster. But, I really don’t see the puppet masters (Obama and company) allowing stubborn, narcissistic Joe to run again.
Even though Joe narrowly escaped immediate termination when “ballot harvesting” and traitor “Republicans” staved off the massive red wave, the reality of the situation has not changed one bit. Joe is still an unpopular, cranky, senile fool, whose entire illegitimate “presidency” is a smoke and mirrors “production” that feels like a poorly run backyard carnival, complete with the “bearded lady” and all the sideshow freaks.
But with that all said, I will admit that it’s almost impossible to figure out what these idiots are going to do. We give them far too much credit for being these “evil geniuses.” They’re really not. They are reacting quickly and stupidly to an ever-changing political landscape and also to the “Trump factor,” which they can never figure out, not to mention, these ghouls are suffering from Stage 5 TDS and can’t think straight, from the get-go.
Former Vice President Mike Pence says Donald Trump should apologize for having dinner with Kanye West and white nationalist Nick Fuentes.
Some conservative pundits, however, are suggesting they’re tired of the rotating controversies pushed by the media and are demanding Republicans no longer play the apology game, even if it is warranted.
“President Trump was wrong to give a white nationalist, an anti-semite and a Holocaust denier a seat at the table and I think he should apologize for it and he should denounce those individuals and their hateful rhetoric, without qualification,” he insisted.
If anyone believed that the Republican Party would slow down monetary and military support for Ukraine, I hate to break it to you but they are still very much the same war hawks they were before the recent midterms.
The Biden administration has pounced on the idea that if Republicans were elected to Congress and could clinch a majority in the House, support for Ukraine could potentially be in danger. Yet here we are, with a slim majority in the House and the GOP parading out their best and brightest to assuage any fears that anything might change under their watch.
A clip promoting the “beauty” of euthanasia sparked outrage online, as Canada plans to expand the application of medical assistance in dying (MAID) next year.
Retailer Simons has shocked Canada by releasing a commercial dubbed “All Is Beauty” supporting assisted suicide. The clip features a woman named Jennyfer Hatch who opted to end her life in October – reports suggest she suffered from Ehlers Danlos syndrome.
Many users called the ad “dystopian”, with some warning that Canadian authorities would force it onto people who are too poor to pay their medical bills.
The controversy regarding euthanasia regulations escalated in 2021 when Canada adopted bill c-7, making several crucial changes to the procedure’s requirements: the new law erased a safeguard that stipulated that people seeking assisted suicide need have a terminal illness, making their death reasonably foreseeable.
Starting next year, Canada will allow individuals suffering from mental illness to ask for euthanasia too.
When Barack Obama was in the White House and Democrats controlled Congress for his first two years in office, they passed a bill dubbed “Obamacare” that was the first step toward giving federal government bureaucrats complete control over Americans’ health care.
Months before Russia launched its counteroffensive against NATO’s crawling encroachment on its western borders, the political West started sending massive amounts of weapons and munitions to the Kiev regime. Initially, the deliveries primarily included tens of thousands of man-portable missiles for various purposes, including ATGM (anti-tank guided missiles) and MANPADS (man-portable air defense systems) weapons. Even then, it already became clear that NATO’s stocks couldn’t provide enough weapons for a long-term conflict, while it would take years to ramp up deliveries by expanding production lines. This was further exacerbated when the Kiev regime started asking for more advanced weapons and systems amid mounting battlefield losses.
Many NATO member states were (and still are) forced to send weapons and munitions which were already in short supply for their own militaries. This is particularly true when it comes to former Warsaw Pact member states of the belligerent alliance, many of whom were forced to give up their Soviet-era weapons. Old NATO powers promised to send their weapons to replace these older arsenals of the alliance’s Eastern European members, although this process proved to be quite slow. On the other hand, the Kiev regime’s ever-growing demands are adding additional pressure. As NATO’s current production capacity simply cannot meet these requests, the Neo-Nazi junta’s battlefield prospects look grimmer by the day. “If this does not happen, we won’t be able to win — as simple as that,” Dmytro Kuleba, the Kiev regime chief diplomat warned during a recent meeting.
Tight refining capacity coupled with ever-depleting stockpiles bodes ominous for the coming weeks and months. If diesel supplies dwindle too low due to supply crunches, critical transportation networks such as ships, trains, and trucks will be severely impacted.
The accrediting council for the American Bar Association (ABA) voted to no longer require the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) for law school applications in an effort to increase racial diversity efforts, but experts told the Daily Caller News Foundation that the move could do the opposite.
Dr. Anthony Fauci claimed he could not remember details about his role monitoring online speech during the COVID-19 pandemic during a Nov. 23 deposition spearheaded by two Republican attorneys general, people present told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
By criticizing Russian legislation banning LGBTQ, pedophilia, and sex-change propaganda, US officials are interfering in the nation’s internal affairs, Moscow’s embassy in Washington said on Friday. It also urged the US to respect the views of the Russian people.
In a statement, the embassy said it had noted “the statements of numerous of US officials” criticizing the bill, which was approved by Russia’s parliament on Thursday.
“We consider such statements as gross interference in our internal affairs,” the diplomatic mission said, adding that “Russia consistently stands for the protection of traditional family values” and rejects “attempts by Western states, led by the United States, to impose pseudo-liberal and perverted ideas about human rights on other countries.”
The embassy asked the US to respect the decision of Russian citizens “to adhere to moral guidelines” that have been embraced by many generations and are “the basis of Russian civic identity.”
Former White House Press Secretary-turned-MSNBC host Jen Psaki had a movement to withdraw a subpoena against her stricken down by U.S. Magistrate Judge Ivan Davis in a hearing Friday in Virginia.
The states of Louisiana and Missouri are pursuing a lawsuit that alleges President Joe Biden and his administration are in violation of the First Amendment through their efforts to urge social media and big tech giants to restrict access to posts and throttle the reach of users creating content around COVID-19 the Hunter Biden laptop scandal and election fraud.
According to the lawsuit as cited by RadarOnline, the Biden White House worked alongside “social media giants such as Meta, Twitter, and YouTube to censor and suppress free speech, including truthful information, related to COVID-19, election integrity, and other topics, under the guise of combating ‘misinformation.’”
Psaki had filed a motion in the federal court of Judge Davis to quash the subpoena calling her to be deposed in the case by suggesting that she had no “relevant information to provide” according to The Daily Mail. Judge Davis was unmoved and apparently “Unimpressed” with the former Press Secretary’s legal argument and ordered the issue be sent back to Louisiana to be handled by the judge directly overseeing the case.
The Louisiana judge had already ruled that Psaki among other Biden administration officials could be deposed.
Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs (D) indicated that she will sue officials in one county if they choose to count ballots by hand, a process that’s “time intensive and prone to human error.”
“Any election director in Arizona—the official responsible for overseeing tabulation of ballots—can attest that it’s impossible to complete an accurate hand count of an election with dozens of races on the ballot in time to comply with applicable statutory deadlines, including the county canvass deadline,” her elections director Kori Lorick wrote in a three-page letter to the Cochise County Board of Supervisors.
President Biden's rented Secret Service vehicles burst into flames in a parking lot Monday, just one day after he left his Nantucket vacation.
Biden spent Thanksgiving on the ritzy Massachusetts island with his family last week. The Secret Service rented five vehicles from Hertz to carry the president and his family, and all five of them caught fire in the parking lot, according to footage first obtained by the Nantucket Current.
Footage shows firefighters spraying down the smoldering remains of one vehicle's engine block. The five vehicles included a Chevy Suburban, Ford Explorer, Infiniti QX80, Ford Expedition, and a Jeep Gladiator.
President Joe Biden called on Congress Monday to pass a law mandating that railroad workers and companies accept an administration-brokered deal in a bid to prevent a devastating strike before a Dec. 9 deadline.
A county in Arizona is refusing to certify the results of its elections following Democratic statewide candidates winning in the state, which could flip a House seat won by a Republican to a Democratic win, according to the Associated Press.
Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy sparred with White House Coordinator for Strategic Communications at the National Security Council John Kirby on Monday over the lack of encouragement for U.S. oil companies to drill domestically.
