“Well, I don't think that policies are responsible for what's happening in the oil market”
Okay, what's the plan? These neoliberal intellectuals spend a lot of time and effort avoiding any and all responsibility for economic conditions. And when excuses don't work, neoliberal intellectuals fall back onto blue-sky promises without any mention of how to get to that bright future. The...
American apathy: Weak ratings for Jan. 6 hearings reveal voter priorities
Via: Nerm_L • News Viners • 9 Comments • 2 Likes • 2 months ago
“Audiences have largely tuned out the Jan. 6 hearings as it rolls to its conclusion.”
Apathy???? The public has already heard all this crap. Democrats really did impeach Trump over Jan. 6. The public can't do anything about Trump. And Democrats have already told the public they aren't going to do anything either. Now these political gaslighters have the audacity to accuse...
Here's what J. Michael Luttig says needs to happen to end a 'war for democracy'
Via: Nerm_L • News Viners • 2 Comments • 2 Likes • 2 months ago
“If the two political parties are going to be fighting literally over America's democracy, that is a war that is endless, and it is destructive of...”
Another attempt to politically gaslight the American public. Luttig highlights the history of Civil War and, yet, completely ignores the lessons of that history. One can only assume Luttig has engaged in deliberate ignorance. Notice the prominence of political parties in Luttig's false...
In energy-strapped Europe, coal gets a Greek encore

“If you want a smooth transition, you think about the next business before you close the existing one. That's not what happened here ‒ we did the...”
When political promises are tested by reality, politicians rely upon dependable expediency. The story isn't really about coal. The story is about lack of political leadership and lack of technical planning. The energy crisis in Europe was caused by a purely political crisis. Politics failed...
Gas Prices: Biden Tells Oil Companies to Explain Production Cuts

“The lack of refining capacity are blunting the impact of the historic actions my Administration has taken to address Vladimir Putin's Price Hike...”
Yeah, Joe, pumping more oil won't do much if that oil can't be refined. So, Biden's historic actions were only intended to pander instead of addressing real problems. Demand for refined products fell sharply during the pandemic. Wise bureaucrats decided that was the perfect time to impose new...
This week in Bidenomics: Democrats lose the midterms
Via: Nerm_L • News Viners • 3 Comments • 1 Like • 2 months ago
“It now seems apparent there won't be enough of an improvement in inflation by the fall to save the Democrats in the midterm elections.”
Looks pretty dire for Democrats. Time to crank up distractions, rely on the press to cover backsides, and maybe throw in a mass protest or two. Are you fired up, ready to go? The only reliable saving grace for Democrats will be Republicans screwing it up. And Republicans do have a...

“I haven’t seen any products in stores for months”
What does American capitalism actually do anymore? There's a ready supply of excuses and scapegoats. And we're constantly reassured there are firewalls to prevent price gouging. But that really doesn't address the problem of empty shelves. The richest country in the world cannot supply its...
Biden: Zelenskyy 'Didn't Want to Hear' US Warnings on Russian Invasion

“I know a lot of people thought I was maybe exaggerating”
Hey, Zelensky, check the oil while you're under that bus. Everyone should have known better than to believe the war in Ukraine was about anything other than Joe Biden. Biden the Wise. Biden the Strong. Biden unified Europe and expanded NATO. Biden defeated the Evil Empire and saved the...

“The number, which will grow as the count adds more networks, is in the ballpark of big television events like a "Sunday Night Football" game.”
Let the spin begin.
