THIS IS FROM YESTERDAY BUT IT'S IMPORTANT SO IT'S HERE AGAIN TODAY
IS RAISING YOUR ELECTRIC RATES 20% IN PURSUIT OF GREEN ENERGY OKAY WITH YOU? If you're an Xcel Energy customer you may not have a choice. Xcel is being super aggressive with green energy goals, but they don't want to pay for any of it THEMSELVES. They want to pass those costs onto rate payers and the Public Utility Commission is hearing them out now. Read more about it here, but if I were an Xcel customer I'd be sending my thoughts to the PUC here already.
THE GERMAN RENEWABLES EXPERIMENT HAS FAILED And it's not just me saying that, it's Germany. After spending more than any other nation to pivot to renewable energy, they are realizing that renewables are NOT reliable and are tearing up the German countryside to get at the coal buried beneath. You'd think we'd learn from them, but no. See the story above for more.
THE WHITE HOUSE BLOCKS TRAVEL FROM THE UK BUT THE BORDER IS OPEN TO IMMIGRANTS And many, many people are pointing out how ludicrous this administration is when it comes to covid policy and travel. Yesterday I had a story about the THOUSANDS of kids on military bases waiting to be processed in huge tents where I'm sure covid is spreading like wildfire, but NO ONE CAN COME HERE LEGALLY. It makes zero sense and just further undermines any trust in this government's reaction to this disease. You can't have the open borders this President has embraced and advertised and then pretend to be tough on people coming into the country legally. This as we are on pace for A MILLION PEOPLE TO POUR OVER THE SOUTHERN BORDER IN 2021 AS OF THIS MONTH. A freaking MILLION.
TWO AURORA PD OFFICERS HAVE POSTED BAIL AFTER BEING ARRESTED One of them is being charged with a myriad of crimes related to his actions when arresting a wanted criminal who was trespassing. The other officer, in what I think are more interesting charges, is being charged with not trying to stop her partner and then not reporting what happened. THAT is really important. Both officers made bail and there is a 1pm press conference about the arrests.
BRITT HUME SAYS WHAT EVERYONE IS THINKING: THE PRESIDENT SEEMS TO HAVE SENILITY
MORE AFRICAN-AMERICANS ARE CALLING OUT CRT HUSTLERS And this guy says it perfectly when he says racism has become an industry. And when something becomes an industry, there are people who will move heaven and earth to KEEP it an industry to keep their gravy train going. Jefferson County Public Schools in Louisville, Kentucky, which is a hot mess and has been for decades because the unions have a stranglehold on it, has been teaching their math teachers how to de-whitefy math. For real. Read more here and be sure to watch the video.
WHY SAINT BERNARDS ARE THE BEST DOGS EVER
ONE MOM TAKES CARE OF A PEDOPHILE And though she went to jail for killing her 71 year old neighbor after she found out he had molested her son. I honestly don't blame her.
WHO APPROVED THE RACIST ASIAN MURAL DOWNTOWN? Because it's about to be cancelled after reducing Asian women to massage therapists and nail techs. This is so rich because Asian Americans are generally some of the highest performing minorities on the country. But an artist who was hired to make a mural in support of the community doesn't have an Asian doctors like I do. Now the mural is being called out for cancellation and I say good.
SIMONE BILES WITHDREW FROM THE TEAM COMPETITION LAST NIGHT And no one seems to know exactly why. She withdrew because of a "medical issue" but no further details were available. Could the pressure be getting to her? The Russians won the gold after her withdrawal. She elaborated later that it is a mental health issue, not a physical one. I am not one to criticize her grit after everything she has overcome to become the best ever, but I find this disappointing anyway.
THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS HAVE FIRED THEIR HORSE MASCOT And I'm sure it's because some animal rights group has been giving them hell for having a horse on the field or something. The Broncos will probably feel the heat if they haven't already. But now Warpaint is out of work.
A FLORIDA LAWMAKER TALKS TO CHRIS CUOMO ABOUT WHY HE DIDN'T GET VACCINATED And it's because he and his family HAVE ALREADY GOTTEN COVID. Watch the exchange here.
IF ONLY THE PRESIDENT WOULD DO NOTHING This editorial from the Wall Street Journal makes an excellent case for President Biden and Congress to do NOTHING. The economy was already in recovery before Biden took office, and now the huge infrastructure bill being negotiated may be in peril because the devil is in the details. I'm fine with that. Don't get me wrong, I want more money for roads and airports and bridges, I just don't want to add ANOTHER TRILLION to the debt to do it.
HERE ARE 11 POPULAR ALLEGED INSOMNIA CURES And as a lifelong insomniac, I have tried nearly all of them except the last one, which I printed out to try when I need it. Read them here, but spoiler alert, none of them worked for the author.
I'M SORRY, DID YOU SAY NO NATIONAL ANTHEM? Parents were told they would not be doing the national anthem before a softball game. Apparently they didn't hear the order.
IF YOU'VE HAD A HEART ISSUE, A BOTTLE OF WINE COULD KEEP THE DOCTOR AWAY But not a bottle of wine DAILY, a bottle of wine or sixer of beer WEEKLY seems to have a good effect on the cardiovascular health of those who have already had an issue. They would certainly be more chill about it.
