According to Obummer the company that was too big to go broke will eventually go broke when you and I along with millions of other hapless commoners go broke. However, that aside, there is ‘Good news for the climate woke: General Motors has pledged to stop making gas-powered cars and trucks by 2035 and sell only zero-tail-pipe emission vehicles. At the rate GM has been declining over the years the first part sounds quite plausible. The New York Times is chuffed about the second, saying “The announcement is likely to put pressure on automakers around the world to make similar commitments.” Well, perhaps. Except that the company boasted in January 2020 that, at least domestically, “We’ve focused our resources on what our customers want – crossovers and trucks – and that has paid off”. So why pivot to cars the customers don’t want? Maybe the real plan is to lobby governments to step in and subsidize trendy green cars for the few who want them at the expense of the many who do not. In which case everybody loses, except the carmakers who cleverly replace sales in the market with subsidies from the state.
At the risk of seeming catty, we might observe that General Motors is, like the New York Times whose print circulation fell by half between 2005 and 2017, a once-mighty brand that is having trouble retaining customers in a changed world. For instance its Oldsmobile division, the oldest surviving American car marque by 2004, folded in that year because the world had passed it by and ad campaigns like “This is not your father’s Oldsmobile” became infamous how-not-to examples of wrecking a troubled brand. Like, we venture to caution, the legacy media ruthlessly excluding any notion that there are two sides to the climate debate at a time of plunging revenues and audiences turned off by substituting bias for opinion, let alone news, without self-awareness.
GM has been through bankruptcy once and seems to be recovering, and remains one of the world’s largest car companies including massive operations in China. But it has quality issues and despite its very woke approach to philanthropy and to hydrogen as well as flex-fuel cars including of course the Volt, it’s only one or two very bad bets away from being a museum piece like, um, Pontiac or Saturn, or a subsidy-dependent shell of its former self. And here we note that they have sold perhaps 200,000 Volts total, out of annual sales that were over 10 million in 2016 but already down to under 8 million by 2019.
Of course it’s always possible that they’ll make a ton of money on green cars and everyone else will rush to imitate them. Because the good thing about the announcement is that it’s about consumer choice. As it should be. Unless, as noted, it’s about getting your grill deep into the subsidy trough because you can’t make money the old-fashioned way.’ https://climatediscussionnexus.com/2021/02/03/not-your-fathers-oldsmobile/
‘Color revolution tactics that have been used against foreign leaders are now being used by President Donald Trump’s opponents to oust him, a former special forces officer has warned.
“A color revolution is a tactic to affect regime change,” the officer, who asked to remain anonymous, told The Epoch Times. “What I see happening is a Marxist insurgency that’s using a color revolution to affect regime change.”
The 2019 Transition Integrity Project, according to the officer, is an indicator that the events of this year’s presidential election were “transparently orchestrated” by “Marxist elements within the Democratic Party and their Marxist allies in foreign governments.”
“It may not have fallen out just as they wanted, because anytime you carry out an operation like this, the enemy will get a vote. But the plan was we will not concede the election. The goal here was never the presidency,” the officer said. “The goal of the opposition was to fundamentally change the country. They are attacking the efficacy of the Constitution.”
To achieve their goal, the anti-Trump opposition focused their main effort on affecting the election, the officer said.
Some of the most notable color revolutions took place amid turmoil sparked by disputed elections. In 2004, mass protests in Ukraine following allegations of a fraudulent presidential election, which initially showed pro-Russia Viktor Yanukovych as the winner, led to a new vote won by Viktor Yushchenko, the candidate backed by the European Union and the United States.
The officer said the tactics used by the anti-Trump opposition can be found in the Special Forces’ guide for overthrowing a government.
“What you’re getting from me, this is supported in all older unconventional warfare doctrines,” the officer said. “You could go to our manuals and pull from them the information I’m telling you. This isn’t from someone who’s a rabid Trump supporter. This is what’s happening.”
The officer then talked about how President Barack Obama used his eight years in office to “seed his political allies all through the institutions,” created an “underground” or “shadow government” supported by legacy media and rioters.
“With the president being unable to get his own people into the administration, we effectively had a third administration of Obama,” the officer said. “So we come to what we have today: The underground are the elements within the government. We saw how they opposed the president, how they tried the impeachment.”
“The press is the auxiliary on the outside. The only thing we’re missing is a real guerrilla force, and we would be mistaken to think that’s just Antifa or Black Lives Matter. There are professional revolutionaries within those movements.”’https://www.theepochtimes.com/former-special-forces-officer-warns-of-color-revolution-tactics-used-against-trump_3612952.html?utm_source=newsnoe&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=breaking-2020-12-11-1
‘From the moment he and Melania glided down the golden escalator at Trump Tower to announce his candidature, the denizens of the swamp have been determined to eliminate Donald Trump.
At his inauguration. the headline in the Washington Post blatantly stated: ‘The campaign to impeach President Trump has begun.’
Lee Smith is a highly respected conservative Senior Fellow at Hudson Institute and former senior editor at the Weekly Standard. The documentary film, The Coup against the President, is based on his book of the same name.
Smith says Barack Obama never left Washington and is the first president to interfere in the peaceful transfer of power to his successor.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney says Obama, unlike all his predecessors, does not believe the United States is exceptional, a position common to the Left. At his inauguration, Obama referred to ‘a nagging fear that America’s decline is inevitable’. As Charles Moore wrote in 2012, Obama’s message is that American power has lessened and that America is not a special place. Obama, he said, was an advocate of America’s decline.
The only obvious consequence of that must be her replacement by communist China. According to unchallenged emails on Hunter Biden’s laptop referred to in the much-suppressed report in the New York Post, as well as corroboration by those closely involved, this could well be a result attractive to the then Vice President Joe Biden. It certainly seems consistent with what seems to be the business plan of Biden Family Inc. which seems to be the sale of access and influence to foreign oligarchs, especially Beijing.
Biden walks in Obama’s shadow, observes Smith, an ‘avatar for a third Obama term’. Obama’s preference, he says, is far-left Kamala Harris, but she proved unelectable in the primaries. Accordingly, he maintains, Obama’s agents consolidated support behind Biden with the hope of fulfilling his 2008 plan of ‘fundamentally transforming America’, thus undoing Trump’s achievements.’https://www.spectator.com.au/2020/12/its-not-over/

This is just one comment to the video. ‘Translation: Let’s shut down the first amendment make American reprogrammed again. This guy was always socialism with a happy face. Once people were on to him his popularity went down. With all this crap going on now with Dominion et al, I’m beginning to wonder if he even won the Oval Office legitimately in the first place.’
Most citizens would not vote for a politician they believed would be a traitor to their country. Well, even though ‘A group of almost 200 retired generals, admirals and top military analysts submitted a letter to Congress asking them to reject Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran’ some did not listen.
‘Sen. Barbara Mulkowski (D) became the 34th vote the president needed to prevent the Senate from overriding the deal. But the Democrats had some Republican buddies that caved. 8 to be exact.
Now it’s time to blow up their phones and flood them with emails. They have committed TREASON! They should all be fired! Hell, they should all be thrown in PRISON!ADVERTISEMENT – STORY CONTINUES BELOW
HERE ARE THE TRAITORS!
- Lamar Alexander of Tennessee
- Dan Coats of Indiana
- Bob Corker of Tennessee
- Jeff Flake of Arizona
- John McCain of Arizona
- Lindsey Graham of South Carolina
- Orrin Hatch of Utah
- David Perdue of Georgia
We reported that Donald Trump exposed a little-known provision of the Iran deal that basically forces the United States to defend IRAN against our good friends Israel!
Here is the list of the 34 Senators that screwed us.
It shouldn’t come as any surprise that this communist inspired film was produced by the Obama’s production company. America and in fact, the Western world is on the brink of collapse unless freedom loving people get active. If the Obama’s of this world get their way your free speech along with many other freedoms we have come to simply accept will be a thing of the past.
However, true freedom is only found in the Lord Jesus Christ!
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
John 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
The Presidency of Obama seemed to ignite more racial hatred among some rather than bringing people together. After reading the following article you will not have to think twice which party Joan Terrell-Paige will vote for in 2020.
‘Joan Terrell-Paige was a community organizer, a longtime New Jersey state employee, a council aide, and was elected to the Jersey City Board of Education on the Education Matters slate alongside Mussab Ali and Marilyn Roman.
The Education Matters slate was backed by the Jersey City Education Association which is the teachers’ union.
And then in response to a high school principal sharing a column titled, “Faith and Hope to Fight Hate”, Terrell went off on a Facebook rant accusing Jews of various things, including claiming that Rabbis were “selling body parts”.
Then she concluded with, “Drugs and guns are planted in the Black community. Mr. Anderson and Ms. Graham went directly to the kosher supermarket. I believe they knew they would come out in body bags. What is the message they were sending? Are we brave enough to explore the answer to their message? Are we brave enough to stop the assault on the Black communities of America?”’ https://sonsoflibertymedia.com/new-jersey-democrat-board-of-ed-member-defends-killing-jews/
What bothers me is ‘who votes for these people?’ Are there so many voters in Jersey City who also hate Jews as much as Joan Terrell-Paige does? Hmm, will this woman continue to be allowed to stay on the Jersey City Board of Education?
