Another Top Terrorist is Dead/ Absurd Ban on Plastic Straws

First, here is a word about a recent Phony Fox News poll:

The poll that said that 51% of respondents want president Trump impeached, yet 48% of the respondents said that they were going to vote in the Democrat presidential primary and just 34% said Republican.

Just as bad, the wording of the poll was intended to get a negative result for the president.

This is called fake and biased polling and it is everywhere in the Fake News media. And this is why trust in the media has dropped precipitously.

Another Top Terrorist is Dead

Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the 9/11 attacks, had a son named Hamza. But Hamza bin Laden has been killed like his father was killed by US forces in 2011.

President Trump, who announced on September 14 that Hamza bin Laden had been killed, said that Hamza, a high-ranking al qaeda member, “was killed in a United States counterterrorism operation in the Afghanistan/Pakistan region.” Trump did not specify the date of bin Laden’s death but it is believed to have been sometime from 2017 to 2019.

A statement released by the White House said, “The loss of Hamza bin Laden not only deprives Al Qaeda of important leadership skills and the symbolic connection to his father but undermines important operational activities of the group. Hamza bin Laden was responsible for planning and dealing with various terrorist groups.”

While the method for killing Hamza bin Laden has not been revealed it certainly involved high-tech US search-and-destroy intel and attack tactics. This shows once again that the advanced technologies of the American military will always overcome the primitive tactics and minds of the muslim barbarians.

Our Christian God is Great! And so is our Christian technology and intelligence. Another savage, ignorant, dirty muslim terrorist is dead…

… as president Trump stands taller than ever…

Plastic Straw Bans are Absurd

The ban on plastic straws is spreading all over the nation. But the big question is: Why are ‘green’ fanatics banning straws in the first place?

Think about how many plastic straws you use in a given year compared to your total garbage output. The straws are an infinitesimal fraction of 1% of your garbage if you even use straws at all. Yet ‘greenies’ act like banning straws is a huge issue that will save the world from being buried under a mountain of plastic waste.

This is ludicrous. And basically environmentalists don’t know what they are talking about in the first place.

They love to tell us that plastic is clogging the environment, that plastic is evil. They now have unveiled a new end-of-the-world hoax, that there is something called “plastic rain” where trace amounts of plastic are being detected in rain water.

Yet plastic is an amazing material. It is made from oil. It does wonders in myriad applications like underground pipes that never rot. Or safe, lightweight, durable playground equipment. Or keeping food fresh and avoiding waste, which saves massive amounts of energy and food by avoiding spoilage. This is a big plus for the environment. Or a million other uses like in the computer that you are using right now.

Plastic grocery bags are ten times as efficient as the paper bags that environmentalists want us to use – plastic bags are lighter and stronger and need less energy to manufacture and transport. Plastic bags are also versatile and re-usable. Nikitas3.com always uses them a second time before throwing them away.

In the meantime the disposal of plastic is a problem that is created by environmentalists themselves. For instance the super-liberal newspaper where Nikitas3.com lives in Massachusetts is delivered every single day to 20,000 customers wrapped in a plastic bag, rain or shine. Yet this same newspaper editorially supports bans on plastic straws and grocery bags. These are typical left-wing hypocrites.

Nikitas3.com recently saw a video in which a British reporter was touring a Chinese industrial site where huge bundles of plastic – each taller than a person – had been shipped from Europe for recycling in China. The reporter found a plastic bag from a market in Britain and then went back to England and confronted the store owners about how the bag ended up in China.

This is absurd. And the reason is simple: Recycling itself is another ‘green’ hoax that should be abandoned promptly. Recycling is expensive, wasteful and inefficient. It consumes huge amounts of energy and money to recycle plastic and paper since the material has to be physically sorted – which is a slow, labor-intensive and costly process – and then moved around and around, again and again, even halfway across the world.

Why should garbage be shipped to China from Britain? How much energy does that consume?

Lots… So what should we do with all of this garbage?

Two words – BURN IT!

Friends, we are wasting vast amounts of energy by recycling. Garbage like newspaper, paper, cardboard and every type of plastic from styrofoam to plastic bags to drink bottles to deli containers is valuable FUEL. It burns!

And with the super-efficient and low-pollution incinerators that we have today we should be burning all garbage and turning it into electricity. If you don’t know how it works, then look it up. It is done in some places in the US and widely in Europe where landfill space is scarce.

That way we take something that has no value and is a problem – garbage – and we turn it into a huge economic plus – electricity – which is the most valuable energy resource of all.

So rather than shipping garbage from Britain to China for recycling – which China now is refusing – or from Massachusetts to Ohio by train for landfilling, we should be incinerating all burnable garbage as close to its source as possible. This would get rid of trash right away rather than giving it a chance to get into the environment along the recycling path. It also would save vast amounts of energy in moving trash or recyclables long distances.

Here is one more news flash: Much waste that we are told is recycled ends up being thrown into landfills anyway.

The problem with recycling starts at the source. Nikitas3.com has often noticed trash in my neighborhood from recycling. If it is windy on recycling day, plastic and newspapers and styrofoam can blow out of the bins and into the street. If the recycling bin is put out beside a busy road the wind currents created by passing cars can blow the material out of the bins. I have seen it happen many times where I live.

This is yet another way that recycling harms, not helps, the environment. Nikitas3.com estimates that up to 25,000 tons of plastic, paper and cardboard blows into the US environment every year out of these bins.

We should be putting all that recycling material out in closed garbage cans along with the rest of the trash. It should then be dumped into garbage trucks that compress it hydraulically and haul it to trash-to-electricity incinerators close to where the garbage is produced, in every city and town.

There is such a plant in Nikitas3.com’s hometown in Massachusetts and it is very efficient. It saves the city large amounts of money on garbage disposal, in both moving garbage around and landfilling it. And it produces hot water for a nearby paper plant, and electricity too. It could be converted to produce just electricity.

Glass bottles and metal cans that do not burn can be separated out by the homeowner, picked up in separate trucks, crushed and landfilled. That would take up a tiny fraction of the space we are now using for landfills. And since glass and metal are inert and have no toxicity associated with them, then that is a perfectly good practice.

Nikitas3.com has calculated that if we burned all US garbage and generated electricity with it instead of landfilling it or recycling it that we could replace the burning of 100 million tons of coal for electrical generation. And we would also be getting rid of our garbage – including those pesky plastic straws.

Meanwhile the ‘greenies’ whip America into a frenzy about plastic pollution in the ocean allegedly caused by Americans. But look at this from Breitbart News:

A groundbreaking study conducted by a team of researchers at Germany’s Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research poured over data on debris from 79 sampling sites along 57 rivers and found that just a handful of rivers in a couple of countries account for an overwhelming majority of the pollutants piling up in our oceans.

“The 10 top-ranked rivers transport 88-95 percent of the global load into the sea,” Dr. Christian Schmidt, a hydrogeologist who headed up the study, told the Daily Mail after the research was published in 2017. “The rivers with the highest estimated plastic loads are characterized by high population – for instance the Yangtze (in China) with over half a billion people.”

The study, published in the journal Environmental Science & Technology, said that by cutting plastic pollution in the Yangtze River — the third-longest in the world and located in China — and the Ganges River, located in India, ocean pollution could be reduced by half.

California Utility Pays Dearly for Forest Fires

PG&E Corporation (Pacific Gas & Electric Company) agreed to an $11 billion settlement for claims resulting from wildfires in Northern California in 2017 and 2018.

This payout resulted from the claim that some of the fires allegedly were started by sparks from power lines and other PG&E equipment that were not adequately maintained. Vox.com reported:

Investigators have attributed more than 1,500 fires to PG&E power lines and hardware between June 2014 and December 2017, according to the Wall Street Journal. And PG&E equipment is a major suspect in the Camp Fire, an October (2018) blaze that killed 85 people and destroyed almost 14,000 homes, making it the deadliest and most destructive wildfire in state history.

OK, so what is wrong with this one single paragraph?

Well, it says that “investigators have attributed more than 1,500 fires” to PG&E equipment.

So who says that that is true? Nikitas3.com does not believe it since the Fake News media lie constantly. It sounds like more ‘green’ propaganda since environmentalists lie every single day. The Vox report also says that PG&E equipment is “a major suspect” in the Camp Fire.

Well, ‘a major suspect’ does not make PG&E guilty. Where are the journalists to investigate if this is true?

They are silent. And to hit PG&E with $11 billion in fines without conclusive proof of guilt is a frightening legal tactic.

Nikitas3.com believes that many of those 1,500 fires, including the Camp Fire, could have been set intentionally by ‘greenie’ domestic terrorists near power lines and substations so that PG&E would be blamed. This is absolutely possible with the radical ‘greenies’ of today. Terrorists have been using arson against Europe and the US for many years.

PG&E had to declare bankruptcy in anticipation of this $11 billion settlement, which is exactly what the ‘greenies’ wanted. After all ‘greenies’ and their leftist comrades have been seeking to destroy PG&E for decades since it is a powerful California corporation that deals in nuclear power, coal-fired power plants, electricity transmission and natural gas.

‘Greenies’ want to replace PG&E with an inefficient, solar-powered and wind-powered utility that starves California of electricity and natural gas, as they are doing all over the US. Berkeley, California has even banned natural gas in new homes and new restaurants.

This settlement and bankruptcy are major steps in killing and taking over PG&E. At the same time, ‘greenies’ want to distract us from their own culpability in the massive fires that have wracked California and the American West over the last few decades since the great Yellowstone Park fire of 1988.

Most of those fires have been caused by lightning but also by careless campers, accidents and even arson. But worse they could generally have been controlled except that the rapid spread of the fires is a direct result of ‘green’ policies that have banned any kind of human activity in the very dry forests of California and other Western states.

This means that loggers were not allowed into the forests and thus the forests were not “thinned out” or scientifically “managed” to prevent fires, or reduce the probability of fires spreading rapidly.

These forests have been allowed to grow unchecked. This has allowed huge amounts of dense tree growth and dead wood to build up into a flammable mass that easily turns into an inferno. It was estimated recently that California alone has 129 MILLION dead trees in its forests.

This happens because most Western forests are tinder-dry pine forests that easily can explode into flame; even live trees burn fiercely. Eastern forests, on the other hand, are generally made up of deciduous trees (with green leaves) that don’t burn in a much wetter climate.

Will ‘greenies’ ever pay one penny for their role in these massive fires all over the West, and in California?

Of course not. ‘Greenies’ have insulated themselves from any blame whatsoever as they do everywhere that they cause economic problems, which is everywhere.

Update from Megan Fox at PJ Media on October 9:

All is not well on the West Coast. Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), California’s main supplier of power, is shutting off the grid for nearly a million Californians. This, they say, is necessary because of the high winds and peak conditions for wildfires over the next few days.

According to USA Today:

Pacific Gas and Electric said power was shut off to 513,000 Northern California homes and businesses early Wednesday. Another 234,000 Pacific Gas and Electric customers will lose power at noon local time, and 42,000 customers in the southernmost areas of the company’s reach could also go dark, the state’s largest power company said.

The precautionary shutdown is expected to last through most of Thursday, and some areas could be without power longer as the utility ramps back up after the winds abate.

PG&E equipment was blamed for last year’s deadly Camp Fire wildfires.

So after PG&E gets blamed for the fires, one million people have to suffer with power outages.

This shows the increasing insanity of California. What about people with medical conditions who need to keep their lifesaving equipment going? How about stores that need freezers and refrigeration, that will lose their food? How about homeowners who will lose their food when the refrigerator goes out?

Even solar panels won’t do you any good unless you have battery storage at your house… which almost no houses do.

Update: A 67-year old man died when his oxygen breathing equipment shut down during the power outage.

Now just watch as PG&E is sued for millions by this man’s family, another step in destroying PG&E.
