Buttigieg on Paid Leave Since Mid-August amid Supply Crisis
[Breitbart] As cargo ships congested at U.S. ports, creating an unprecedented supply-chain crisis, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was on paid leave to spend time with his husband, Chasten, and their two newborn babies.

After weeks of people questioning Buttigieg’s whereabouts as crisis after crisis mounted, Politico’s West Wing Playbook confirmed on Thursday that the transportation secretary was "lying low."

"They didn’t previously announce it, but Buttigieg’s office told West Wing Playbook that the secretary has actually been on paid leave since mid-August to spend time with his husband, Chasten, and their two newborn babies," Playbook reported.

Nile Gardiner: Why Britain can't stand Joe Biden
[FOXNEWS] With a domestic approval rating of just 38%, Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S. Former Senator-for-Life from Delaware, an example of the kind of top-notch Washington intellect hacked up by the World's Greatest Deliberative Body. The guy who single-handedly lost Afghanistan...
is fast becoming one of the most unpopular presidents in modern U.S. history at such an early stage of a presidency. The catastrophic Afghanistan withdrawal, a massive crisis on the southern border, and a Socialist-style big government economic agenda have all combined to disillusion American voters.

Is the leader of the free world though faring any better on the international stage? After all, Biden boasted on the campaign trail about "restoring" America’s standing and credibility across the globe after the supposedly reckless approach of the Trump era.

Thanks to Biden's policies, prepare for a cold, expensive winter
[AMERICANTHINKER] One of the wonders of the modern age is that fossil fuel allows us to avoid freezing in the winter and overheating in the summer. Climate change fanatics, however, who ignore that the Earth's climate has cycled endlessly between hot and cold for billions of years, desperately want to return us to a pre-modern state. Their efforts are paying off, for the U.S. government is warning of a 54% increase in winter heating bills.Upon entering the Oval Office, Biden immediately shut down the Keystone Pipeline and ended new drilling on federal lands. While Trump had brought America to energy independence and affordable energy, Biden reduced America to a vassal of oil-producing countries.

Thanks to this policy, gasoline prices keep climbing. In my neighborhood, they've increased by almost 78% in just nine months. The same is true everywhere.

Like all Biden policies, this is devastating for the middle and working classes, for it doesn't just make commuting more expensive; it increases the price of every single item in America. Fuel is needed for farming, manufacturing, shipping, wholesaling, and retailing. Every aspect of life becomes more expensive when fuel prices rise, with the middle and working classes bearing the ultimate burden.

All of this is in the name of fighting alleged climate change. That is a faith, not a science. We humans can pollute, and I believe we have a moral obligation to keep our environment clean and healthy, but the whole climate change theory is a joke and a bad one at that.

Kerry says world short of climate goal
Us hominids evolved during periods of greater warmth and moisture. I keep trying to imagine what conditions must have been like when a walk down the block would include the occasional brontosaur. Enormous body sizes like that in plant eaters implies tons o' plants, and quickly replenished. That would imply a terrarium-like climate, with warm temps and high humidity. At least my opinion; I'm not an agronomist or a biologist. But it's something to think about. Higher temperatures and an increased greenhouse effect might actually be something that would be good for humanity, especially with stable-to-declining populations.

How 'Zuckerbucks' helped swing the 2020 election for Biden: Facebook CEO funneled $419M into 'nonprofit' local election admin boards 'to help turn out likely Democratic voters'
[Daily Mail, Where America Gets Its News]

  • CTCL's grants boosted Biden's dollar per vote value and Biden counties were 3.5 times more likely to receiving funding from the group

  • On average, Biden counties received $2.85 per vote, compared to Trump counties that only received $0.89

  • CEIR donated $64.2million of Zuckerberg's money to 22 states and the District of Columbia

Biden Raises Eyebrows with Wild Plan to Fix Supply Chain: Truckers Can Drive at Night
[Western Journal] As concerns about the global supply chain loom large, people have turned to President Joe Biden for potential solutions in the United States.

However, one of Biden’s proposed solutions to resolve delays is something that already takes place: truck drivers working overnight.

"That means an increase in the hours for workers to be moving cargo off ships and onto trucks and railcars to get to their destination. And more than that, the night hours are critical for increasing the movement of goods because highways are less crowded in the evening, at night," Biden said in a news conference Wednesday.

Government Corruption
Andrew McCabe, FBI official fired by Trump administration, gets pension restored
[FOX] In a settlement deal disclosed Thursday, fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe has had his government pension fully restored.

McCabe, 53, who has been a CNN contributor since 2019, had filed a lawsuit that year, claiming his firing was an effort by the Trump administration to rid the FBI of officials who were seen as disloyal to the then-president. Nearly a year before McCabe was ousted in March 2018, the Trump administration had terminated James Comey, who was the bureau’s director.

In McCabe’s case, the inspector general for the U.S. Justice Department, which oversees the FBI, concluded McCabe had OK’d the release of information to a newspaper reporter and then misled investigators who were seeking information about his role in the alleged leak, The Associated Press reported.

McCabe, who first joined the FBI in 1996, was fired by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, just hours before McCabe had planned to retire from the bureau. The firing prompted McCabe’s pension to be denied, the AP reported.

Trump quickly acknowledged McCabe’s ouster on Twitter, writing: "Andrew McCabe FIRED, a great day for the hard working men and women of the FBI – A great day for Democracy.

#1  He landed a Deep State sponsored job at their CNN disinformation agency after his firing. Yes, same type of position as Trump hater and former Klingon Director John Brennan. He'll now likely get back-pay and a nice 'double bubble pay' mint in his mouth.

Should we be surprised? Not in the least. In fact, I believe this very outcome was predicted here on the Burg.

We know exactly how these crooked SOB's operate.

Bill Clinton hospitalized with a non-COVID-related infection
[FOX] Former President Bill Clinton has been hospitalized in California for a non-COVID-19-related infection.

"On Tuesday evening, President Clinton was admitted to UCI Medical Center to receive treatment for a non-Covid-related infection," Clinton's spokesman, Angel Urena, said in a statement on Thursday evening. "He is on the mend, in good spirits, and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care."

University of California Irvine Medical Center in Orange, Calif., confirmed that Clinton is being treated there, Reuters reported.

A source close to the situation tells Fox News: "It was diagnosed as a urological infection which morphed into a broader infection. As you can see in his statement from his doctors, the prognosis is good and they hope to have him home soon. He’s up and about, joking and charming the hospital staff."

Urena released a joint statement from Doctors Alpesh Amin, chairman of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, and Lisa Bardack, director of Hospital Medicine for UCI Health.

Blue-city politics meets wokester academia in Los Angeles: Corruption as far as the eye can see
[AMERICANTHINKER] Lefties love to talk about greed and "equity," but they never seem to notice its phenomenal growth in the one-party rule of their blue cities.

Here's the story from Los Angeles as the New York Post reports:

A Los Angeles City Council member and the former dean of the University of Southern Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,'s School of Social Work were indicted Wednesday in connection with a scheme in which the pol allegedly promised to steer lucrative contracts to the school if it gave his son a scholarship and a professorship.

#1  A group of Portland businesses have sent a letter to @tedwheeler and others begging for help with the ''rapidly deteriorating conditions'' in downtown.

Socialists begging for help from Socialist. That is Socialism. By the way. The police made no arrests during the riot a couple nights ago. They have been defeated. And until buy a gun and ammo and learn a little bit of counter guerilla warfare against these terrorists your world will continue be completely destroyed.

Standing atop the mass of laws, rules, regulation, taxes and policies you protect, which have caused catastrophic increases in the prices of everything, seeing Sen. Schumer like that, you have a visual display of what sanctimony looks like.

#13  Ref #11: Yes, very dangerous work. Many stories were told about nitro factory accidents and well mishaps. The foto depicts the loading of a torpedo. The torpedo was carefully lowered down the hole to a prescribed depth. Then a heaving firing mechanism (piece of iron) called a "go devil" was run down the line to ignite the charge. THe blast created an underground cavity for the crude oil to gravity into and be pumped out. Wells back then were much more shallow. Some less than 1500 feet deep.

#16  These assholes hate the American working class. The best stimulus program - the most "progressive" policy - is one that lowers the cost of basic goods and services, the essentials that everyone depends on.

In America, that would be the cost of GASOLINE and ENERGY.

If you truly want to put money in the pockets of low- (or no-) income Americans, them you'll support cheap oil and natural gas. You'll support fracking -- the best thing to happen to America and American families in fifty years.

So what do the leaders of the supposed party of the Working Man do?

They support Burn-Loot-Murder, Tranny story hour, union giveaways and Green-Grift. And they oppose the one thing - fracking - that would do more to alleviate the burdens on our poor and working class families than everything else put together. F--kers.

Amateur hour: Pete Buttigieg's inexperience exposed as supply chain breaks down
[THEHILL] A quick Google check of "Pete Buttigieg
...the testicleless mayor of South Bend, Indiana, since 2012. Buttigieg graduated from Harvard College and, on a Rhodes Scholarship, from Pembroke College, Oxford. From 2007 to 2010, he worked at McKinsey and Company, a consulting firm. From 2009 to 2017 Buttigieg served as an intelligence officer in the United States Navy Reserve, attaining the rank of lieutenant and deploying to Afghanistan in 2014. Buttigieg was first elected mayor of South Bend in 2011 and was reelected in 2015. During his second term, he announced he was gay, which surprised no one. Buttigieg also campaigned for Indiana state treasurer in 2010 and for chair of the Democratic National Committee in 2017, losing both elections. He ran for the Dem nomination in 2020 on the theory that being mayor of a nondescript medium sized city is qualification to run the country. He lost that one too...

The Left Has Lost The Gun Control Argument
[AMERICANTHINKER] I've never watched The View other than clips of notable segments offering a glimpse into the minds of female progressive media people. One such four-minute mini-discussion took place Tuesday that, I think, reveals that the gun-grabbers have lost the battle for control of the narrative on gun ownership. Gun ownership by Blacks is rapidly expanding in the wake of the St. George Floyd
...the patron saint of Minneapolis, a sterling example for our children and indeed for us all. St. George was martyed by the Devil's agents in blue while standing on a street corner preaching tolerance and racial justice or something like that...
riots and the demonization of police that has led to a spike in violent mostly peaceful crime in most major cities.Joy Behar introduced a segment on more Black females buying guns, and a member of the panel, actress Sherri Shepherd, who was a former cast member and is now filling in for Meghan McCain, announced she had purchased a 9 mm gun. The audience laughed a bit nervously, but she elaborated that during the quarantine, she had felt helpless, especially when "a march" was announced in her neighborhood.

She went on to explain that she received firearms safety training and that she practices shooting with her girlfriends. And she purchased the gun, as did some other actresses with her, at one of two Black-owned gun shops in Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party, and felt "empowered."
