Energy so Clean it can be Seen and Smelled Miles Away

Meet Exelon, not sure if it’s Harvest I or, Harvest II, but it is wind turbine #17.

Said it before but, let’s revisit the wind scam again from the blog Watts Up With That?, If Solar And Wind Are So Cheap, Why Are They Making Electricity So Expensive?

Hirth predicted that the economic value of wind would decline 40% once it reached 30% of electricity, and that the value of solar would drop by 50% when it reached 15% of electricity.EP

In 2017, the share of electricity coming from wind and solar was 53 percent in Denmark, 26 percent in Germany, and 23 percent in California. Denmark and Germany have the first and second most expensive electricity in Europe.

By reporting on the declining costs of solar panels and wind turbines but not on how they increase electricity prices, journalists are — intentionally or unintentionally — misleading policymakers and the public about those two technologies.

The Los Angeles Times last year reported that California’s electricity prices were rising, but failed to connect the price rise to renewables, provoking a sharp rebuttal from UC Berkeley economist James Bushnell.

Recall what the Recucklican Majority passed during lame duck 2016?

Gretchenomics: Yoopers Digging Their Next Meal out of the Dirt, in the Cold, and in the Dark

Alas! The DetNews highlights just how reprehensible the Bolshevist union of an offspring of the insurance lobby (Whitmer), and radical lesbian Nessel ✡️, has unfolded for Michiganians.

But new Gov. Gretchen Whitmer promised on the campaign trail to shut down Line 5, and she’s allowing that ill-considered vow to get in the way of sound policy.

Whitmer teamed with Attorney General Dana Nessel to block the work by declaring the tunnel unconstitutional.

Nessel’s opinion, issued last week, is that the law approving the deal violates the state constitution because its title doesn’t reflect what’s actually in the bill. That semantical objection seems an iffy legal stance, considering that so many laws in Michigan bear lofty titles that have little connection to their contents.

*Think* the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act: it did the exact opposite.

But it was enough for Whitmer, who seized the ruling to order preparations for the tunnel work to cease.

This will surely end up in court. The Republican-controlled Legislature won’t stand by while the new Democratic administration usurps its lawmaking authority, nor should it.

SML Shirkey, Speaker Chatfield, I do believe you have your marching orders.

Ps. when it comes to Line 5 transporting daily 540,000 barrels of light crude oil and synthetic petroleum, 65% of the propane used in the Upper Peninsula, and 55% used statewide, methinks, someone takes the matter at hand a wee too nonchalantly.

Yes, that is the magistrate.

President Trump needs to direct AG William Barr to investigate this court.

The Nessel Doctrine

Dana Nessel doesn’t like the title of the pipeline law.

So much so, that she is using that as a reason to stop the Enbridge tunnel construction from happening.  From the state’s official propaganda service:

LANSING – Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel issued her first formal legal opinion today, finding Public Act 359 of 2018 unconstitutional because its provisions go beyond the scope of what was disclosed in its title.   Governor Gretchen Whitmer had sought the Attorney General’s opinion on the constitutionality of Act 359 in a request submitted on January 1.

In her opinion, the Attorney General concludes that certain provisions of Act 359 – including those transferring all authorities related to a utility tunnel from the Mackinac Bridge Authority to the Straits Corridor Authority and requiring the Corridor Authority to enter into an agreement for the construction of a tunnel if a proposed agreement was presented by a specific date and met listed criteria – are unconstitutional because they violate Article 4, Section 24 of the Michigan Constitution, referred to as the Title-Object Clause.

Green New Squeal

Jeez, the Democratic Party is going down faster than Kamala did on Willie Brown.

Washington — The U.S. Senate’s vote to advance the ambitious Green New Deal failed as expected Tuesday, with most Democrats voting “present” in protest of what they’ve called a “sham” vote.

Michigan Sens. Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters, both Democrats, were among 43 senators voting present on the resolution, while 57 [Republicans] voted no.

Neither Stabenow nor Peters have publicly endorsed the Green New Deal but both roundly criticized their Republican counterparts for supposedly failing to take climate change seriously or even acknowledge it’s man-made.

Rest of Michigan’s two midwits drool here

Now, let the comedy ensue…

Thought Carrie Nation was an Abject Failure? Try, Allah Nation

The first question should be, much like any homicide, does current statute prevent anything? If no, then what’s the point of criminalizing another whole new group of people other than to backdoor prohibition?

State Rep. Abdullah Hammoud concedes that his goal is not just to eliminate drunken driving. He wants to keep anybody who has consumed any amount of alcohol from getting behind the wheel.

“Drink, or drive,” said Hammoud, D-Dearborn. “Choose one. It should never be both.”

Hammoud, 29, a non-drinker with a background in public health, introduced a package of bills last week that would lower the threshold for drunken driving to a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.05, from the current 0.08.

Hammoud a non-drinker? Allah-Shazam! Guess what? He’s a non-pork eater too. Shall we criminalize eating bacon? Why not, Abdullah’s Democrat Party buddy, Alexithymia Ocashew-Cortex wants to ban cow farts, and am pretty sure pigs fart too so, let’s not offend any moslems, right? 🤦‍♂️

Nessel: Promises Made

Promises kept.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has reached a settlement in a case challenging state taxpayer funding for faith-based adoption agencies that refuse to place foster children with same-sex couples.

The settlement will require the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to maintain non-discriminatory provisions in foster care and adoption agency contracts and end state contracts with agencies if they discriminate against same-sex couples in state-contracted cases.

Mackinac Island Cuckservative and Democratic Socialist Festival

Prediction: lowest turnout ever.

Former Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican critic of President Donald Trump, is set to be the keynote speaker at this year’s Mackinac Policy Conference and talk about the “current national political climate,” the Detroit Regional Chamber said Thursday.

Oh, the guy that loser Brian Calley endorsed in 2016?

Liars gonna lie, yes? Reckon that’s why Kasich works for Very Fake News.

Other scheduled conference speakers include Democratic Michigan Gov. Gretchen[nomics] Whitmer; former Florida governor and 2016 Republican presidential hopeful Jeb [Please clap] Bush; Democratic strategist and Fox News contributor Donna Brazile [Crooked Hillary’s BFF]; Stacey Abrams [Tank], the 2018 Democratic candidate for Georgia governor; Detroit Mayor Mike [Demo Disaster] Duggan; and Michigan congressional members.

Am sorely disappointed that they were not able to get Maxine ‘Peach foty fi’ Waters to attend. It would complete their agenda.

Howes: it’s just I know so much that isn’t so

Shot

Chaser

As usual, Sundance is spot-on in his assessment. Mary Barra, perhaps the most questionable selection of a CEO in General Motors’ history, is not operating in the best interests of the working men and women of America, just the same as the politically motivated UAW leadership that fails it’s members. When it comes to these Wall Street players, sorry worker bee’s, they both are just not that interested in Main Street pain.

Also, of late Mr. Howes appears to trumpet the nonsense of autonomous vehicles, which GM, Ford, Google (I know, astonishing, right?), among a few others have gone “all in” as the way of their future business model. Meh, perhaps. However, all one needs to do is look at Tesla, Airbus, and now, Boeing, to see that autonomous vehicles are in no way, shape nor form, close to being primetime on our congested roadways. Not in our lifetime, anyway.
