First, here is a quick word about Hillary Clinton:
President Trump’s strategy of tweeting is finally being recognized for the genius that it is. In short, he tweets in order to drive his opponents crazy and force them to say stupid things. He recently tweeted about Hillary Clinton:
I think that Crooked Hillary Clinton should enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren. Only one condition. The Crooked one must explain all of her high crimes and misdemeanors including how & why she deleted 33,000 Emails AFTER getting “C” Subpoena!
And just look at what Crazy Hillary said in response:
“You know, it truly is remarkable how obsessed he remains with me. But this latest tweet is so typical of him. Nothing has been more examined and looked at than my e-mails. We all know that. So he’s either lying or delusional, or both. There was no subpoena, as he says in a tweet this morning. So maybe there does need to be a rematch. Obviously, I can beat him again.”
“I can beat him AGAIN”?!? This woman is insane. She still can’t get over 2016.
Friends, president Trump is truly a genius. Only he could drive these Democrats into such fits of insanity, stupidity and rage.
Trump in 2020!
Michael Berry is the New Rush Limbaugh
Michael Berry is a nationally-syndicated conservative radio talk show host based in Houston, Texas. You can learn more about him on his website where you can listen to some of his podcasts and find out where to hear him on the radio.
Berry is very good at what he does. Nikitas3.com considers him to be the next Rush Limbaugh, i.e., the best national radio host there is.
Rush has had many substitute hosts on his program but none are as good as Berry, in the opinion of Nikitas3.com. Berry has never substituted for Rush, however. But if he did so Nikitas3.com believes that he would immediately be chosen by Rush listeners as the best substitute host.
Michael Berry is simply different. He is 48 years old. He has a casual, laid-back and conversational style. Much of his narrative is Texas-based, which gives it a nice regional flavor, but it is also national in scope when he needs it to be.
Berry is very funny. He is associated with the Redneck Country Club and he cracks a lot of jokes during his broadcasts. He occasionally mocks his own listeners for being too extreme, but he does it in jest. One of his favorite targets is the black Democrat congresswoman from Houston Sheila Jackson Lee whom he routinely savages as an ignoramus.
He also is closely associated with a veterans’ help group called Camp Hope.
Berry broadcasts across the USA. Nikitas3.com picks him up on a station out of Albany, NY.
Michael Berry has had a very interesting life in Houston. He is a lawyer by training and has served on the Houston City Council. He even has served as mayor pro tem of Houston. His wife, who was born in India, is also a lawyer who has served as secretary of state of Texas(!)
Watch for Michael Berry. He is really special. You will be hearing more about him as time passes.
3.6 Million Miles per Gallon
The old story among environmentalists goes like this: An inventor tinkering in his garage has designed an automobile that gets 200 miles to the gallon. He patented it and presented it to industry, planning to make a fortune.
So General Motors, in collusion with ExxonMobil, seeing a threat to their auto/petrol monopolies, bought the patent and promptly burned it. End of car.
This all sounds like good fodder for the enviro left and is repeated year after year. The only problem is that there is no 200 miles-per-gallon car for the reason of simple physics: The fuel that we rely on – gasoline – only contains so much usable energy. You cannot multiply the energy itself, but only can multiply its efficiency by using it wisely.
And that energy will, when optimized, do more work, for instance if it is used to fuel a lightweight car versus a heavy car, thus moving the driver further. For instance these micro-cars, which only carry two people maximum, and hardly any groceries or packages, may get 60 MPG. But 200 MPG? Never.
So the best we can do is to improve the internal combustion engine.
But it has been optimized as much as it can technologically be. Expensive hybrid cars are said to be capable of more than 50 miles per gallon. Yet the normally-priced, gasoline-powered Toyota Camry can get 40 miles per gallon on the highway.
On the other hand we have one very special vehicle that gets 3.6 million miles per gallon. It is called nuclear power and certain entities have fought against it for decades.
No, not the coal companies that wish to maintain their monopoly on energy production, or the oil companies. It is the environmentalists who have destroyed the 3.6-million-miles-per-gallon car.
Nuclear power, which produces 20% of the US electricity supply, is literally 3.6 million times more efficient than coal-fired power plants, which make up 50%. Because according to one common industry statistic a refined uranium pellet one gram in size will produce as much heat energy over its lifetime as 4 tons of coal – in other words, it is 3.6 million times as efficient for its weight as coal is.
Imagine if we could stretch our oil supplies by a factor of millions, if every gallon in the ground today could be multiplied to 3.6 million gallons. Would that not be a wonderful idea? We would have limitless energy for millennia just on the basis of the oil supplies we have today, never mind those that we have not even found.
But who would try to stop that efficiency from happening?
Environmentalists would. They already are doing so by forcing the shutdown of nuclear power plants all over the country, blocking new nuclear plant construction, blocking efficient natural-gas-fired power plants and coal-fired plants, and blocking efficient ‘fracking’ for oil that is producing abundant supplies.
Because environmentalists do not favor energy efficiency. They favor energy IN-efficiency. That is why they are fighting nuclear power and ‘fracking’ and seeking to install highly inefficient windmills and solar panels everywhere.
Nuclear power is infinitely more efficient than wind power. Nuclear power is producing huge amounts of electricity for a given investment of resources and capital. Wind power, on other hand, will produce a very small amount of energy for the same investment. And that is the most important point.
To understand it, imagine this scenario: We should build 800 new nuclear reactors, each at 1,000 megawatts of electricity, in the United States over the next 25 years. That means that we would add 800,000 megawatts of installed capacity over 25 years – while the total installed capacity that we have today is 1.1 million megawatts.
This would provide plenty of electricity for present and future needs, and the cost of electricity would remain low because the supply would be high. And Americans could continue to have a high standard of living with zero air pollution since nuclear power produces no emissions whatsoever. In addition, most nuclear fuel can be recycled, and that which cannot is benign.
But there’s more… Those 800 reactors would allow us to shut down all the coal-fired and natural-gas-fired power plants in America (800,000 megawatts) and convert that domestic coal and natural gas (1.2 billion tons of coal consumed per year in power plants, 5 trillion cubic feet of gas consumed per year) to transportation fuel, heating oil and other types of fuel. This would add all that fuel to our domestic supply. This would bring down fuel prices dramatically and also add a massive amount of fuel to our export supply.
Pretty good deal, right? That would solve all of our energy problems for hundreds of years. The only problem is that environmentalists do not want us to have energy independence. They wish only for us to have severely reduced energy supplies, energy INefficiency, higher costs and lower living standards. That is why they are opposing nuclear power.
And that is why they are fighting in favor of windmills – because they are getting rich on windmills. The only problem is that the windmills all need to be subsidized by taxpayers and so environmentalists are really getting rich off of taxpayers. Windmills are so inefficient that they cannot sustain themselves in the marketplace like nuclear power can.
So imagine that we installed 800,000 megawatts of capacity not in nuclear power but in windmills. What would this mean?
This would mean that we would only have 33% or 25% or 20% of the electricity production of nuclear power because wind energy is incredibly inefficient. First, the wind does not blow all the time so we would need to multiply the capacity just to get the same output. This would waste hundreds of billions of dollars in precious investment capital and cause electricity prices to skyrocket. It already is doing so. ‘Green’ energy is pushing up energy prices worldwide.
Second the scattered small-scale megawatt-by-megawatt production of electricity through windmills is very inefficient according to the most basic law of Economies of Scale that says that it is vastly more efficient to do something on a large scale than on a small scale.
For instance there is a reason that we all shop at a large supermarket rather than at the corner convenience store. It is called Economies of Scale. The big supermarket is vastly more efficient and cost-effective at obtaining and distributing food due to its size, particularly if it is part of a supermarket chain, which increases its efficiency.
Third, windmills produce much of their power at night when electricity is not needed. This does tremendous damage to the economics of the power grid. What good is power that is delivered at the wrong time?
Not much. But don’t expect enviros to ever work toward genuine energy efficiency because the efficiency they want is always coerced (like the government demanding smaller cars) while natural efficiency (like nuclear power) is thwarted by the same people.
The type of efficiency that happens naturally is a good thing that has nothing to do with environmentalism. The American economy today produces twice as much GDP per unit of energy invested as it did in 1950, which is a result of the natural striving for efficiency inherent in our open capitalist system.
Radical Muslim Congresswoman is Getting a Divorce
The radical muslim Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar from Minnesota is in the news yet again.
After many serious allegations of financial improprieties and, worse, marrying her own brother to commit immigration fraud, The Daily Caller reported:
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar filed for divorce Friday, just over a month after she denied to a local TV reporter that she was separated.
… The question came the same day that the wife of Tim Mynett, her campaign consultant, filed for divorce in Washington, D.C., saying that Mynett told her he was having an affair with the congresswoman and was leaving (his wife) for Omar.
Five weeks later, Omar filed for divorce from her husband, Ahmed Hirsi, in Minnesota.
It sure is lucky for Omar that she does not live under muslim sharia law. She would probably be stoned to death for divorcing her husband. God bless the USA!
