China Joe Says To Wear A Mask!

Yeah, why not make it a total Demented Joe day today. Which, let’s be honest, with a new president it will mostly dominate coverage for a couple weeks, but, hey, he wants you to wear a mask!

Did anyone at ABC or one of the other networks think to ask Joe why he wasn’t wearing a mask while on federal property, as his Executive Order stated?

Good News: Treasury Department To Focus On Climate Crisis (scam)

And the hit parade from the China Joe administration keeps coming. Any Biden voter/Never Trumper complaining when their cost of living goes up, well, sit down, shut up, and own it

Biden’s Treasury Department to Focus on Climate Change

During her confirmation hearing, Janet Yellen–Biden’s nominee for Treasury Secretary–promised to employ the authority of the Treasury Department to combat climate change.

This statement reinforces the conclusion that the Biden Administration will seek to make expansive use of its regulatory and administrative authority to pursue climate change policy, which may lead to numerous regulations and enforcement activity beyond the typical environmental context.

Businesses in America should prepare–as many are already doing so–to address and adapt to climate change regulations in the financial sector.

Treasury secretary nominee Janet Yellen on Tuesday pledged to create a team to focus on climate change, in a move that’s likely to put the powerful agency at the forefront of the Biden administration’s efforts to combat what she called an “existential threat.”

In a hearing before the Senate Finance Committee, Yellen said she planned to start a new Treasury “hub” that would examine financial system risks arising from climate change and on related tax policy incentives. She also intends to appoint a “very senior-level” official to lead climate efforts.

Now, one could say that this doesn’t quite dovetail into their stated mission

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s mission is to maintain a strong economy and create economic and job opportunities by promoting the conditions that enable economic growth and stability at home and abroad, strengthen national security by combating threats and protecting the integrity of the financial system, and manage the U.S. Government’s finances and resources effectively.

But, should Treasury be spending their time forcing compliance with their political beliefs, or simply dealing with their core functions?

The basic functions of the Department of the Treasury include:

  • Managing Federal finances;
  • Collecting taxes, duties and monies paid to and due to the U.S. and paying all bills of the U.S.;
  • Currency and coinage;
  • Managing Government accounts and the public debt;
  • Supervising national banks and thrift institutions;
  • Advising on domestic and international financial, monetary, economic, trade and tax policy;
  • Enforcing Federal finance and tax laws;
  • Investigating and prosecuting tax evaders, counterfeiters, and forgers.

This is exactly what we mean when we say things like Socialism, Marxism, Stateism, etc. Modern Socialism. For Biden voters and Trump haters, this what you agitated for. Don’t complain when your personal and business lives gets screwed up.

China Joe Mandates Masks For Travel

Perhaps Joe should mandate masks for his family

No social distancing, no masks

Biden puts forth national coronavirus strategy, requires masks for travel

As the U.S. enters “what may well be the toughest and deadliest period of the virus,” President Biden is putting forth a national COVID-19 strategy to ramp up vaccinations and testing, reopen schools and businesses, and increase the use of masks, including a requirement that they be worn for travel. (snip)

The U.S. mask order for travel being implemented by Biden will apply to airports and planes, ships, intercity buses, trains and public transportation. Travelers from abroad must furnish a negative COVID-19 test before departing for the U.S. and quarantine upon arrival. Biden has already mandated masks on federal property.

Although airlines, Amtrak and other transport providers now require masks, Biden’s order makes it a federal mandate, leaving little wiggle room for passengers tempted to argue about their rights. It marks a sharp break with the culture of President Trump’s administration, under which masks were optional, and Trump made a point of going maskless and hosting big gatherings of like-minded supporters. Science has shown that masks, properly worn, cut down on coronavirus transmission.

He might have the authority to do this for interstate and international travel, but, not for in-state and in-city travel. Where masks are already required in 31 states, D.C., and Puerto Rico. The other states will blow this off. And, what’s the point of a mask mandate when airlines, Amtrak, etc, already require this, except to say “Joe is Doing Something”? If Trump did this the media would have been all over him, as we all know. And, negative COVID tests and quarantine were already required.

Will Joe require Antifa/BLM to wear masks when they are on federal property firebombing it? Further, if masks work so well, why was there this huge spike in positive tests while most were wearing masks?

More: Joe, Kamala, and others were without masks on federal property

Hotcoldwetdry Will Be Sudden And Cataclysmic Or Something

Wait, I thought the climate cultists were saying that climate change is already here? No? Doom is actually on the horizon?

Climate Change Will Be Sudden and Cataclysmic Unless We Act Now

The speed and scale of the response to COVID-19 by governments, businesses and individuals seems to provide hope that we can react to the climate change crisis in a similarly decisive manner – but history tells us that humans do not react to slow-moving and distant threats.

Our evolution has selected the “fight or flight” instinct to deal with environmental change, so rather like the metaphor of the frog in boiling water, we tend to react too little and too late to gradual change.

Climate change is often described as global warming, with the implication of gradual changes caused by a steady increase in temperatures; from heatwaves to melting glaciers.

But we know from multidisciplinary scientific evidence – from geology, anthropology and archaeology – that climate change is not incremental. Even in pre-human times, it is episodic, when it isn’t forced by a human-induced acceleration of greenhouse gas emissions and warming.

There are parts of our planet’s carbon cycle, the ways that the earth and the biosphere store and release carbon, that could trigger suddenly in response to gradual warming. These are tipping points that once passed could fundamentally disrupt the planet and produce abrupt, non-linear change in the climate.

So, doom all of a sudden

Is it Time to Declare a Climate Emergency?

At what stage, and at what rise in global temperatures, will these tipping points be reached? No one is entirely sure. It may take centuries, millennia or it could be imminent.

So, they have no clue despite telling us that Doom was coming very soon or already here? Huh

Breaching these tipping points would be cataclysmic and potentially far more devastating than COVID-19. Some may not enjoy hearing these messages, or consider them to be in the realm of science fiction. But if it injects a sense of urgency to make us respond to climate change like we have done to the pandemic, then we must talk more about what has happened before and will happen again.

Otherwise we will continue playing Jenga with our planet. And ultimately, there will only be one loser – us.

If it’s such a concern, why are almost no Cult of Climastrology member practicing what they preach?

China Joe Wants People To Stop Shouting And Turn The Temperature Down

Who’s he asking?

At a muted inauguration, Biden asks Americans to ‘stop the shouting and lower the temperature’

Forty years ago, I watched awestruck as Ronald Reagan moved into the White House amid pageantry that was 180 degrees different from Joe Biden’s subdued arrival.

California’s former governor, an upbeat dreamer, always envisioned America as a “shining city on a hill.” Biden was inaugurated in a city that depressingly resembled an armed camp — as did California’s state Capitol and statehouses around the country on Wednesday.

That’s because the departing president had recklessly whipped up supporters into a deadly mob that stormed and ransacked the U.S. Capitol, leaving the nation shaken.

So, obviously, this opinion piece by George Skelton at the LA Times is blaming Republicans and going TDS. And spends many more paragraphs whining about Trump and his supporters (how do you get #Unity when all you’re doing is blasting?), before finally getting to

Biden HaloBut Biden made the most of it, emphasizing in his speech to a relatively tiny crowd — limited by COVID-19 and security concerns — that “democracy has prevailed,” despite the Trump-incited violent mob that tried to stop Congress’ certification of electoral votes.

“Stop the shouting and lower the temperature,” the new president pleaded, repeatedly stressing the need to unite the nation.

“We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this if we open our souls instead of hardening our hearts. If we show a little tolerance and humility and if we’re willing to stand in the other person’s shoes, as my mom would say.”

You first, chump, you first. Your people started this with their “Flyover Country” and “Fuckistan” during the Bush years. You and Barack did little to nothing to reduce the shouting during your 8 years as Vice President. You were part of starting a hoax that Russia put Trump in office. Barack did plenty to incite this, from policies to just plain invective. What did you do the past four years of Trump to tell Democrats to turn it down? When they were calling Trump and Trump voters (over 70 million) Nazis and racists and white supremacists and so much more? What about his people who are rioting in Democratic run cities, committing arson, assault, looting, property destruction, and more? Heck, his own people are telling him nasty things and destroying a Democratic Party office in Portland.

He says he wants to turn things down, but, he won’t tell his own people to turn it down, including himself and the Credentialed Media. He’s already pushing far left legislation and executive orders. If you live by the sword you die by the sword (metaphorically, of course). It probably doesn’t help when yet another of his appointees wants to go after Republicans for Wrongthink

(Reuters) President-elect Joe Biden’s nominee to lead the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, said on Tuesday he would empower intelligence staff at the agency to gather information on extremist threats in “an apolitical, nonpartisan way” following a violent attack on the U.S. Congress.

“The threat of domestic extremism is one of the greatest challenges that the Department of Homeland Security confronts,” Mayorkas told the Senate Homeland Security Committee in a confirmation hearing before Biden is set to take office on Wednesday.

By non-political he means going after Republican voters. Even the threat of this turns the temperature up. What say you, Joe?

COVID Is Very Inconvenient For Solving ‘Climate Change’ Or Something

The World Economic Forum is very vexed by this whole people being sick, losing their jobs and businesses, oh, and dying from the pandemic. Ironically it came from the climate liars in China

Fighting climate crisis made harder by Covid-19 inequality, says WEF

Tackling the existential risk posed by the climate crisis will be made harder by the growing gap between rich and poor triggered by the Covid-19 pandemic, the World Economic Forum has said.

The body that organises the annual gathering of the global elite in the Swiss town of Davos said warning signs of the threat posed by infectious disease had been ignored for the past 15 years, with disastrous results.

Despite the loss of almost 2 million lives to Covid-19, the WEF’s global risks report found that environmental issues were considered to pose the biggest danger in the coming years, both in terms of impact and likelihood.

Klaus Schwab, the executive chairman of the WEF, said: “In 2020, the risk of a global pandemic became reality. As governments, businesses and societies survey the damage inflicted over the last year, strengthening strategic foresight is now more important than ever.”

Schwab added: “Growing societal fragmentation – manifested through persistent and emerging risks to human health, rising unemployment, widening digital divides, and youth disillusionment – can have severe consequences in an era of compounded economic, environmental, geopolitical and technological risks.”

The WEF report said the Covid-19 pandemic had widened longstanding health, economic and digital disparities, making it harder to secure the international cooperation needed to combat challenges such as environmental degradation.

Well, they should talk to their buddies in China. And maybe the elites should have thought about all this inequality getting in the way of ‘climate change’ responses before locking the world down, which, get this, made a lot of people resistant to giving up their freedom.

You people need to stop getting sick and dying, it is just so bothersome and inopportune for the grand high poobahs of the Cult of Climastrology.

China Joe Pushes Path To Citizenship For Illegal Aliens

The only way this passes the Senate is if they nuke the filibuster or 10 Republicans cross over

Biden to propose 8-year citizenship path for immigrants

President-elect Joe Biden plans to unveil a sweeping immigration bill on Day One of his administration, hoping to provide an eight-year path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. without legal status, a massive reversal from the Trump administration’s harsh immigration policies.

The legislation puts Biden on track to deliver on a major campaign promise important to Latino voters and other immigrant communities after four years of President Donald Trump’s restrictive policies and mass deportations. It provides one of the fastest pathways to citizenship for those living without legal status of any measure in recent years, but it fails to include the traditional trade-off of enhanced border security favored by many Republicans, making passage in a narrowly divided Congress in doubt.

Expected to run hundreds of pages, the bill is set to be introduced after Biden takes the oath of office Wednesday, according to a person familiar with the legislation and granted anonymity to discuss it.

As a candidate, Biden called Trump’s actions on immigration an “unrelenting assault” on American values and said he would “undo the damage” while continuing to maintain border enforcement.

In other words, border enforcement will become very lax, and the Biden admin will incent more illegals to come.

Under the legislation, those living in the U.S. as of Jan. 1, 2021, without legal status would have a five-year path to temporary legal status, or a green card, if they pass background checks, pay taxes and fulfill other basic requirements. From there, it’s a three-year path to naturalization, if they decide to pursue citizenship.

As they say, the devil is in the details, and I’d like to see what the full “basic requirements” are. Further, what’s this temporary legal status? Does that mean they can only stay a short period, and then have to leave? We know in practice that would simply mean them not being able to be deported, and then eventual amnesty. Will the illegals be required to do all the same things and pay all the same money as those going through the usual naturalization process? Will all the required money and taxes be waived?

For some immigrants, the process would be quicker. So-called Dreamers, the young people who arrived in the U.S. illegally as children, as well as agricultural workers and people under temporary protective status could qualify more immediately for green cards if they are working, are in school or meet other requirements.

The interesting thing is that the pro-illegal immigration crowd will caterwaul that all these requirements for illegals is too burdensome and takes too long and they should just be given amnesty, so, China Joe will be getting it from his own base.

For example, it does not include a robust border security element, but rather calls for coming up with strategies. Nor does it create any new guest worker or other visa programs.

Surprise! There will be no actual action to reduce illegal immigration.

Fighting Hotcoldwetdry Could Define Kamala Harris As VP Or Something

During the Democratic Party primaries, despite all the talk that the base wanted climate crisis (scam) debates, the Democrats running on it, Jay Inslee  (who couldn’t even get his stuff passed in Washington where he was governor) and Tom Steyer, flamed out early and with virtually no support. Kamala flamed out early with virtually no support, as well. And, does Mother Jones realize that Vice President’s really do not do much beyond being sent on missions by the president? That they are virtually inconsequential?

Fighting Climate Change Could Define Kamala Harris’ Vice Presidency. Watch Our Interview With Her.

Kamala Climate ClownKamala Harris represents a series of historic firsts—she will be the first woman vice president, the first Black vice president, and the first Asian American vice president. She’ll also be the first-ever vice president who has devised a comprehensive plan to address climate change—and as the tie-breaking vote in the evenly split Senate, she’ll have plenty of opportunity to fight for the environment.

Harris’ home state of California has been hammered by longer wildfire seasons, blackouts from extreme heat, and drought. Harris doesn’t shy away from connecting these events to manmade climate change. When I sat down with her in Dubuque, Iowa, a year before she joined the presidential ticket, she was still in the midst of her own presidential campaign. “For me this issue of the climate crisis relates to every aspect of what we do,” she said.

Right, right, the blackouts have nothing to do with replacing viable, inexpensive, reliable energy sources with unreliable ones. We get a lot more heat down here in the South, and you don’t hear about blackouts, including planned ones, eh? Florida has plenty of wildfires, yet, no blackouts.

Her remarks to me in October 2019 captured some of the themes that are starting to define the Biden administration’s all-hands-on-deck approach to the climate crisis: It’s not something the Environmental Protection Agency can address alone. “Every branch has a role in this responsibility.”

Watch your wallets. And you butts! (which are stand ins for your freedom, liberty, and choice)

Harris’ climate plan didn’t get much attention during her presidential run, but it was impressive: Her vision of the Green New Deal included a staggering economic investment in clean energy and infrastructure. She spoke about the importance of including low-income and communities of color in the fight against pollution and climate change; her Climate Equity Act, introduced first in 2019 with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) in 2019, requires that any environmental legislation receive an equity score to assess its impact on frontline communities.

Neither demanded a vote on it, and, with Democrats controlling the House, AOC could have.

Another theme from my interview with Harris was her insistence that the Department of Justice should investigate and rein in manipulative oil and gas industry practices. Her actual record on that is more mixed: As California attorney general, Harris led an investigation into whether ExxonMobil misled consumers about climate change, but she did not go as far as to issue subpoenas. And although she has at times embellished her history of suing and winning against Big Oil, she has spoken forcefully about holding polluters accountable. “Let’s get them not only in the pocket book, but let’s make sure there are serious penalties for their behaviors,” she said. That means taking aim at the “whole apparatus built around them” that’s built to protect the dominance of fossil fuels. And, she emphasized, that may not just mean the major oil companies, but other players, like gas-reliant utilities. “I think everyone who is part of misinforming the public, misleading the public and false advertising should be held accountable,” she said.

Using the power of the federal government for partisan attacks on companies they do not like. Well, they still like them enough to consider using the products of those companies. I don’t see Kamala and other Democrats giving up their own use of fossil fuels. Nor the DOJ. Good luck operating without fossil fuels, and, again, those companies should refuse to sell their products to the White House and DOJ if they pull this crap.

I suspect there will be plenty of pieces on purges and the Kamala/Biden administration going after political opponents and private entities they do not like for the next 4 years.
