Gasoline Prices Spike Under Biden/ Bye-bye Nikki Haley lives in New England and the price of gasoline in my area has soared 40 cents per gallon to $2.55 since election day 2020. That was the day that the oil market started to accept that Biden was going to be president and prices started rising accordingly. predicts $3.50 a gallon by Summer 2022 or earlier. This will happen because the oil market, and thus the price of gasoline, is driven by psychological factors as well as market forces. And the psychology of Democrats and their ‘green’ friends is to create scarcities of oil, coal and natural gas, which drive up prices.

The recent spike was given an added jolt when Biden killed construction of the Keystone pipeline which is designed to bring crude oil from Canada to refineries in Texas. And now several hundred of the goons in Hollywood are calling for Biden to shut down the Dakota Access Pipeline, which has been bringing crude oil since 2017 from the massive Bakken deposit in North Dakota south to Illinois and then on to Texas.

The Dakota story is more frightening than Keystone because the Dakota pipeline is carrying crude oil today. The ‘greenies’ want to shut off that supply. And this is just the beginning. They want to start shutting off all of our operating pipelines. For instance the governor of Michigan, Gretchen ‘the Witch’ Whitmer, is threatening to shut off a crucial oil pipeline that runs under the the 4-mile-wide Strait of Mackinac under Lake Michigan. She says that it might spill even though it hasn’t done so in 67 years of operation.

The ‘greenies’ prevented the construction of a natural gas pipeline from the Pennsylvania gas fields into New England, even though it is much needed. In the brutal Winter of 2018, New England had to import gas from Russia after supplies ran low. So the money went to Russia and not Pennsylvania. This makes no sense except to environmentalists who are seeking to ruin our economy.

The hypocrites in Hollywood will continue to fly around on their private jets while they tell the rest of us that we are going to pay more and more to drive to our jobs and heat our homes. Poor Americans, whom Democrats claim to speak for, will get hurt the most.

This is part of the Biden/Democrat strategy to cut off the very lifeblood of our economy. You may think that this cannot happen, but it already is happening. And if these rats continue their dirty work, they will destroy our economy and our well-being.

‘Greenies’ claim that we are going to drive electric cars. This won’t happen without major disruption. Where will the power come from as ‘greenies’ shut down our coal-fired power plants and nuclear plants for electricity?

They say that windmills and solar panels will replace them but that is false. Wind and solar are grossly inefficient and expensive. In addition, electric cars cost twice as much as the same sized gasoline-powered cars. Electric cars can lose half of their battery power in frigid weather. Expensive $10,000 batteries can wear out and may need to be replaced. It takes more than one hour to charge a small electric car even at a ‘quick charging’ station.

The ‘greenie’ strategy also will push up the price of heating oil. This will hit us all hard, particularly the poor.

Do environmentalists care? Does Hollywood care? Of course not. They have plenty of money.

Bye-Bye Nikki Haley

Nikki Haley was the somewhat conservative Republican governor of South Carolina whom president Trump made into an international figure by appointing her US ambassador to the United Nations.

Interestingly Haley was an anti-Trumper during the 2016 election. And now that Trump is gone, she is turning her back on the president again. She said “we shouldn’t have followed him.”

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

OK, we know that Haley wants to run for president in 2024 but these comments mean that she should forget about getting the nomination. Period. End of story. Because we Trumpers are going to be the major force in the 2024 primaries and we will make sure that Haley does not see the light of day.

New York City is Out of Control

Two people were found stabbed to death on two separate New York City subway trains on Friday night and early Saturday morning.

This is more proof of the sick condition of the city under its far-left mayor. Not only has the city been going steeply downhill since this mayor took office in 2013, but the China virus and the riots have also taken a heavy toll. believes that respected billionaire John Catsimatidis will run for mayor next Autumn as a reform candidate and will win easily
