Michigan: Black conservatives warn of ‘energy poverty’ if Line 5 is closed

(The Center Square) – Citing the potential threat of energy poverty, a national organization of Black activist groups has appealed to President Joe Biden’s administration to allow the Line 5 pipeline to remain open.

Project 21 is an initiative sponsored by the National Center for Public Policy Research in Washington, D.C. The initiative includes members and organizations aimed at providing conservative solutions to problems facing African-American communities.

Project 21 and its affiliate groups and members are responding to the revelation this week from the Biden administration that it is exploring whether to support Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s efforts to close the five-mile stretch of pipeline spanning the Straits of Mackinac. Whitmer and Attorney General Dana Nessel are also seeking to prevent the building of a $500 million tunnel to house the pipeline. Costs of the tunnel would be shouldered completely by Enbridge Inc., the Canadian company that owns and operates the Line 5 pipeline, which has been in operation since 1953.

Among the problems Project 21 seeks to address is energy poverty, which Project 21 member and Reaching America President Derrick Hollie told The Center Square is exacerbated by government policies that result in higher heating fuel and gasoline costs. Those higher costs force lower-income families to sometimes choose between food and other amenities such as gasoline to drive to work and keeping their homes warm in the winter and cooler during the summer.

“Why would President Biden want to increase the misery of people already trying to keep up with the inflation he caused? It’s absurd that he wants to increase their misery by reducing the flow of oil into the Great Lakes region at the onset of winter,” Project 21 member Emery McClendon said in a statement. “America needs this vital pipeline to remain open. Americans must not be denied the ability to stay warm during the harsh winter ahead. Closing down the Line 5 pipeline will unduly affect Americans’ standard of living – especially those living in black communities who are already struggling to make ends meet.”…

It’s for the earth.   Or the satanic elite, one or the other.

Pennsylvania committee advances measure to ban private funding of elections

(The Center Square) – Members of the Pennsylvania General Assembly’s State Government Committee advanced legislation to ban private funding for election operations and outreach, following several states that have already enacted similar measures.

The move was inspired by grants to local election offices provided by nonprofits controlled by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg during the last election cycle that went overwhelmingly to Democratic leaning districts.

State Rep. Jim Struzzi, R-Indiana, told the committee at Monday’s hearing that lawmakers discussed the issue during spring budget hearings, when he learned nonprofits including the Center for Tech and Civic Life, controlled by Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan, spent roughly $35 million on elections in 24 of the state’s 67 counties.

“I found that shocking. How could that be allowed? Surely that has to be illegal,” Struzzi said. “You’re talking about $35 million of private money coming into Pennsylvania to facilitate our elections.”

Struzzi said 81% of the funding went to five counties in highly Democratic districts.

“This bill very simply closes the door on what turns out to be significant private money that was not transparent,” said Rep. Eric Nelson, the bill’s sponsor.

Rep. Russ Diamond, R-Lebanon, said he was less concerned about private money coming in to help with elections than how it was distributed, alleging state officials gave early notice about the grants to counties that favor Democrats. Diamond said heavily Democratic counties received nearly $8.80 per voter, while the highest Republican county received $1.73.

“We now know both the governor’s office and the Department of State gave prior notice to specific counties,” he said….

Record 4.4 Million Americans Quit Their Jobs in September Amid Vaccine, Mask Mandates

A record 4.4 million Americans quit their jobs in September, a continuing economic trend under the reign of Joe Biden that has seen countless Americans leave the workforce. The Department of Labor released statistics revealing the figure, which beats out August 2021 as the record-breaking month for job quitting.

Major American companies started enforcing strict vaccine mandates in the month of September, which Biden warning of an OSHA mandate to force businesses with more than 100 employees the next month. The Biden administration vaccine “requirement” has been met with a smorgasbord of legal challenges, but the administration is urging private businesses to enforce vaccine mandates anyway.

American businesses have proved increasingly unwilling to increase wages and benefits, in the midst of wide-ranging inflation spurred by Biden’s economic policies. With ever more employers demanding that their employees receive the coronavirus vaccine against their wishes, it appears many workers are opting out of the “job” experience entirely, frankly deciding that it’s simply a better alternative to stay at home, pursue hobbies, or explore economic activity outside of working for an employer.

Corporations that hire workers for the service economy simply refuse to relent on ruthless mask mandates, demanding that the average burger chef, Home Depot associate, or coffee barista wear the pointless garment as the American public increasingly recognizes the practice as a useless gesture. In hypocritical fashion, corporate managers for major companies are more likely than ever to work in settings where masks aren’t mandatory, while demanding them for the lower-paid workers.

Economists predict that companies that wish to retain a serious workforce will need to pay a livable wage. Corporate America has undertaken a wide-ranging lobbying effort to increase legal and illegal immigration, hoping to replace American workers unwilling to work for pennies with foreign labor with no bargaining power.

The Department of Labor describes 10.4 million job openings in the September report, but with large corporations fanatically opposed to paying much of their workforce traditional American middle-class wages, it doesn’t appear the fake “labor shortage” (as coined by the elite) will be ameliorated anytime soon.

Ray McGovern: The Man Who Got Russiagate Right and Tried to Warn the Public—To No Avail

As new evidence comes to light, will the 27-year CIA veteran ever receive the credit he deserves? Or will the media continue to spotlight the liars and charlatans who peddled the hoax?

On September 17, Special Counsel John Durham—appointed by Trump Attorney General William Barr to investigate possible crimes committed in the Russiagate investigation—issued an indictment against Michael Sussman, a lawyer for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, on charges of lying to the FBI General Counsel by claiming the existence of a “secret server” that allowed the Trump organization to communicate with Russia-based Alfa Bank.

Sussman’s 27-page indictment offers a window into the origins of the Russiagate scam, which aimed to divert public attention away from emails leaked by WikiLeaks that showed how the Democratic National Committee had rigged the 2016 primary against Bernie Sanders.

Over the last five years, one of the fiercest critics of Russiagate has been Ray McGovern, a 27-year CIA analyst (1963-1990) and morning briefer of Vice President George H.W. Bush from 1981 to 1985 who in 2003 founded Veterans Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS) in response to the manipulation of intelligence during the buildup to the 2003 Iraq War.

McGovern studied Russian language and history at Fordham University and became a CIA analyst in the early 1960s, considering himself at the time a Cold Warrior taking up the good fight against “godless communists.”

McGovern’s outlook began to change when he read cables that contradicted the government’s narrative about a monolithic communist bloc….
