George Will: GOP terrified of its own voters

 

Of course the GOP is more than happy to sell out Orange Man to the Dems with a 9/11 type investigation into January 6. Susan Collins and Romney are on board. More interesting is how George Will spins this on “This Week” on Sunday with George Stephanopoulos. Let’s keep the charade of January 6 alive until 2022. Meanwhile the GOP expresses little interest in the mayhem and murder Antifa and BLM are perpetrating. 

This Week:

Republican leadership in the House and Senate — and Trump — came out against the proposed commission. Collins, as one of the seven Republican senators who voted to convict Trump, is one of the most likely “yes” votes on the GOP side, but that small group of Republicans is already differing from their House counterparts with North Carolina’s Richard Burr coming out against the bill, even though he voted to convict Trump in the impeachment trial.

However, the Maine senator told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos she’s “optimistic.

Just a few years ago… recall 2016?

Trump Inaugural

 

The so called “terror” just might be sending all of these GOPers Reps packing.

Volume up! Looks like a dangerous crowd to me don’t you think. Of course this is after the police invited them in but I already discussed that.

 

U.S. Capitol Police Gave Protesters OK To Enter Capitol

Rumble — In this short clip, Capitol Police officer Keith Robishaw warns protesters—including “Q shaman” Jacob Chansley—inside the Capitol Building on January 6 against using violence. Chansley and another protester are then seen instructing other protesters to be nonviolent as they exercise their right to assemble.

A newly-obtained video shows United States Capitol Police officers speaking with several January 6 protestors—including Jacob Chansley, the so-called “Q shaman”—inside the Capitol that afternoon.

One officer, identified in the video and confirmed by charging documents as Officer Keith Robishaw, appears to tell Chansely’s group they won’t stop them from entering the building. “We’re not against . . . you need to show us . . . no attacking, no assault, remain calm,” Robishaw warns. Chansley and another protestor instruct the crowd to act peacefully. “This has to be peaceful,” Chansley yelled. “We have the right to peacefully assemble.”

Watch:

The best of the swamp today.

Wind Farms Blowing

While some think that ‘Wind’ is the answer.  Americans consider all the facts and arguments.

George Will makes some solid points in his recent column:

20 percent of America’s electricity, and 69 percent of its carbon-free generation of electricity, is from nuclear plants. But it has been 30 years since America began construction on a new nuclear reactor.

France gets 80 percent of its electricity from nuclear power.  China is starting construction of a new reactor every three months.

Meanwhile, America, which pioneered nuclear power, is squandering money on wind power, which provides 1.3 percent of the nation’s electricity: it is slurping up $30 billion of tax breaks and other subsidies amounting to $18.82 per megawatt-hour, 25 times as much per megawatt-hour as the combined subsidies for all other forms of electricity production.

Wind power involves gargantuan “energy sprawl.”  To produce 20 percent of America’s power by wind, which the Obama administration dreamily proposes, would require 186,000 tall turbines—40 stories tall, their flashing lights can be seen for 20 miles—covering an area the size of West Virginia. The amount of electricity that would be produced by wind turbines extending the entire 2,178 miles of the Appalachian Trail can be produced by four reactors occupying four square miles of land. And birds beware: the American Bird Conservancy estimates that the existing 25,000 turbines kill between 75,000 and 275,000 birds a year. Imagine the toll that 186,000 turbines would take.

Obama has approved a loan guarantee to underwrite construction of two new nuclear reactors in Georgia.   He should double and triple his efforts.  But he spent time on Earth Day talking up Wind Power.   Obama knows his  decision carries political impact and he is getting  ready to implement his plan off Cape Cod.   Matrix thinks there will be much fall out from this to come from the good folks on Cape Cod.
