Democrats in Denial, Hope We'll Join Them

results of the failures of democrats

Tom Borelli By Friday, 28 October 2022 10:55 AM EDT Current | Bio | Archive

Never underestimate the ability of Democrats to deny reality, while twisting the truth in pursuit of their radical agenda.

The list in this regard is almost endless.

President Bidens administration officials insist the southern border is secure.

On multiple occasions Biden said he didnt discuss his son Hunters business deals with foreign countries, the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) will reduce inflation, and renewable energy is the solution to our countrys energy needs, to name a few.

These deceptions are so deep they bring to mind the famous scene in the Marx Brothersmovie "Duck Soup," where Mrs. GloriaTeasdale (Margaret Dumont) watched Groucho Marx (Rufus T. Firefly, leader of "Freedonia")  leave her room only to find Chico Marx (Chicolini) dressed and made-up as Groucho, who was hiding under her bed.

Seeing Chico in her room and thinking its Groucho, she says, "Your Excellency! I thought you'd left. But I saw you with my own eyes."

Chico responds with the classic line, "Well, who ya gonna believe me or your own eyes?"

Thats the same question every American should be asking themselves before the 2022 election: Who are you going to believe? Democratic Party lies or your own eyes?

Perhaps the most visible example of Democratic deception to most Americans is Bidens Green New Deal push.

The Democrats, led by Biden, tell us renewable energy will deliver us from fossil fuel energy dependence.

Like it or not, the world runs on fossil fuels. Renewable energy cant fill the void.

Europe is learning that lesson the hard way.

Russian President Putin decided to play politics with natural gas and the huge investment in renewable energy didnt deliver. Europe now finds itself in the midst of an energy crisis.

Across the U.S., Americans are seeing and experiencing high energy prices at the gasoline pump and in utility bills.

Disturbingly, high energy prices are not the only problem.

News over the past year is pointing to third-world energy shortages.

Over the summer, California had blackouts during a heat wave.

To keep the lights on the governors office encouraged the states residents to conserve energy by raising the home temperature over a set number of hours to 78 degrees or even higher and not to use appliances.

The basic problem was the supply of energy couldnt keep up with demand.

The problem with Californias energy supply is a result of the states dependence on renewable energy.

An ABC News story pointed to the challenges of solar power:

"The solar supply decreases toward the end of the day, prompting the calls to reduce energy use after 3 p.m. or 4 p.m. There can also be uncertainty with solar supply due to factors such as cloud cover and smoke from wildfires, as the state battles several blazes."

Summer is not the only challenge for states that are reducing their use of coal and nuclear energy even though the latter doesnt emit carbon dioxide.

A recent Wall Street Journal story warned New England states might face blackouts if there is a cold snap of weather during this winter.

The electricity challenges are due to states essentially eliminating coal as a power source for the power grid and also reducing nuclear power.

As a result, New England is extremely dependent on natural gas but the region doesnt have the pipeline infrastructure to deliver enough of the fuel when in high demand.

The region was supplementing the supply of natural gas by using liquified natural gas (LNG) from ships but this year it will be harder to get supply because of increased worldwide demand due to Russias invasion of Ukraine.

The region also has renewable energy mandates to force the use of this power source, but wind and solar power only provide about 12 percent of the electricity for its power grid.

The possible blackouts will occur when natural gas is used to heat homes, leaving power operators short of supply.

Electricity shortages in the winter are not the only challenge in New England. Bloomberg reported a shortage of home heating oil in New York and New England. The shortage is tied to low diesel supplies which is the same liquid fuel as home heating oil.

The home heating oil shortage has New England governors panicked and they met with U.S. Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm over rising fossil fuel prices and shortages.

Instead of whining to Granholm, the governors should have recognized the limitations of renewable energy and advocated for a diverse source of power plant fuel and sought the construction of refineries and natural gas pipelines in the region.

Thanks to Democrats' Green New Deal policies that replace fossil fuels with renewable energy, Americans are suffering from high energy costs and the possibility of blackouts and cold homes.

Experiencing a third-world energy shortage in the U.S. is a reality that Americans can believe with their own eyes.
