Yet Another Reason Government Shouldn’t Be Involved in Energy

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Because…Humans. And Humans’ Nature

There are lots and LOTS of reasons government shouldn’t choose which energy sources We the People use.

Begin with – the marketplace is far and away the best decider. Of any and everything – always and forever.

Items like oil and coal didn’t instantaneously become hugely popular because of government mandates. They became hugely popular – because they produce massive amounts of energy per dollar spent.

Items like oil and coil have remained hugely popular – because they still produce massive amounts of energy per dollar spent. More

The Latest Climate Lie-ence: The Usual Suspects – Working Up the Usual Fiction

The Climate Change Freaks: Consistently Incorrect

Global warming – oops,…I mean climate change – is The Greatest Scam on Earth. It is a giant lie – perpetrated by some of the world’s biggest frauds.

Being Leftist means never having to say you’re sorry. The climate change liars have been caught lying and falsifying and manipulating data too many times to count. They have been so wrong so often on so many things.

And yet The Establishment continues to take them gravely seriously. It’s a joke. A huge, unfunny, accidental attempt at humor.

One of the climate change Left’s biggest bete noires – is the biggest oil company on the planet, ExxonMobil. Exxon is currently suffering a years-long, multi-pronged Leftist attack. The climate freaks keep coming up empty – but they simply retrench and return to lie another day.

The Leftists are working an inside-out-outside-in approach. They have Leftist elected officials bringing governments to bear – while coordinating with outside Leftist groups, and the Leftist foundation funders. How do we know this? More

The Big Lebowski: New Bogus Russia Nonsense from Obama Deep State Holdovers

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Guilty

America ratified the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution – which banned alcoholic beverages – in January 1920. It would have been obscenely obnoxious – and an unbelievable governmental overreach – to have then begun arresting people for drinking in December 1919, and then working your way back through the calendar.

Because in Reality, you can’t punish people for deeds that were legal at the time they did them – just because you outlawed those things later.

But when the Donald Trump political phenomenon began, the Media-Left complex left Reality even further behind them than they already had. They saw a faint inkling of Reality still present in their rearview mirror – and put their government-subsidized Tesla and Chevy Volt pedals to the metal.

The Left’s chief anti-Trump Shibboleth – is “Russia.” Anyone even remotely connected to Trump who ever had anything to do with that nation – is guilty of heinous crimes. Because – “Russia.”

What crimes? That’s never actually articulated. Because in Reality – they aren’t actually guilty of any. But…”Russia.”

If they could tie him to Trump, they’d arrest The Dude Lebowski – because his drink of choice is a White Russian (which is also racist).

The media is spending 75% of their Trump time on “Russia.” Which is the #1 most important issue – for 6% of Americans. More

The Left: Shoveling Much Manure, Desperately Seeking Ponies

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

The Left –
Reporting for Manure Duty

There’s an old joke. About a little boy standing in the entrance of a huge barn – clearly filled to the rafters with manure. The boy has a shovel in hand – and loudly proclaims “There has to be a pony in here somewhere.”

The Left – is this little boy. And their little boy search – is trying desperately to locate dirt on their political enemies.

One such manure-fest – is being thrown at now-President Donald Trump.

We’ve wasted nearly a year on totally-evidence-free charges that Trump colluded with the Russians to get elected. Loads and loads of excrement have been flung – trying to unearth that pony. To zero avail.

That narrative (finally) collapsing, the Left shifted their hopes to Trump-fired Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) head James Comey. Their formal mortal enemy, the Left desperately grasped and clung to Comey – as he intimated that Trump had allegedly, stealthily, back-handedly obstructed justice.

Then Comey testified before Congress. And did so much damage to both of the Left’s ridiculous narratives – the Russia collusion and the attending obstruction of justice – that even MSNBC’s Chris Matthews was forced to acknowledge it “came apart.”

Will these serial, profound defeats stop the Left? Of course not. Stay tuned – they’ll shortly come up with something even more ludicrous. Their pony-free pony search will continue. More

Ridiculous Anti-Capitalism – with a Ridiculous Face

The Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus was the “Greatest Show on Earth.”  From 1919 – until this year, when Leftists radicals culminated a years-long assault on the Circus by successfully shutting it down.

Global warming – ooops, I mean climate change – is the Greatest Scam on Earth.  A now decades-long push by the Left to get human beings to stop advancing the human condition.  The same people that shuttered the Circus – are looking to end human achievement.

The environmentalist movement is an anti-capitalism movement.  But for decades (but less and less these days, thanks to decades of government-school indoctrination) – you looked like an idiot being anti-capitalism.  Because its unfathomable success was glaringly obvious – both standing alone, and especially in contrast with the other major option, Socialism.

So the Left dressed up their Socialism in green costumes – and declared that they were Saving the Planet.  Which is why we call the environmentalists “Watermelons” – because they’re green on the outside, red on the inside. More

Reasonable, Rational, Lawful AGs Stage an Intervention for NY’s Radical Schneiderman

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

No One Expects the AG Intervention

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman has led a years-long Don Quixote-esque political persecution of ExxonMobil.  An ongoing, rolling abuse of his power as the Empire State’s chief lawyer – and a gross dereliction of that office’s actual duties.

Schneiderman is engaged in all of this ideological obnoxiousness – because he believes in the myth that is global warming…oops, I mean climate change.  Or, more likely, he believes – and revels – in the very real massive increase in government that goes along with the implementation of the belief in the myth of climate change.

Schneiderman claims he is going after Exxon – for knowing climate change is real, and hiding that information from the public.  Which almost assuredly isn’t true – since, you know, climate change isn’t true.  And even if it is and they did – it isn’t actually, you know, a crime.

Schneiderman may believe that Exxon possesses evidence that unicorns are real.  This we do not know.  What we do know is that Schneiderman is going after Exxon for giving money to climate change realist non-profit organizations (full disclosure: our Less Government has never been one of them).  Which not only isn’t a crime – it’s a First Amendment-protected freedom-of-speech activity.

And in the grander scheme of things, Schneiderman is going after Exxon – for having the audacity to engage in legal commerce.  Selling their legal product in legal ways on an open, legal market.  (An international market, by the way – so this has nothing to do with the office of one U.S. state’s Attorney General.)

‘Climate Change’: It Was Better When the Media Didn’t Pretend to Be Impartial

Hot Off the Paid-For Presses

One of the greatest of the great many scams to be hatched and nurtured during the radical Left revolution of the 1960s – was the notion of “objective journalism.”  The radicals created the concept – to advance Leftism under artificial cover.

Prior, most newspapers and other outlets were openly organs for one Party or faction or another.  That’s why old school newspapers had and have names like “The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.”  Then came the Left’s “journalism” scam.

Walter Cronkite was the CBS Evening News’ anchor for nineteen years – and “The Most Trusted Man in America.”  Except he lied about the Vietnam War’s Tet Offensive.  We won the battle – Cronkite didn’t like the war, so he “reported” we lost.  His fake news almost singlehandedly turned public opinion against the War.

Cronkite fully outed himself when he retired as a “journalist” – and became a news “analyst.”  Where he was free to share his rote, doctrinaire, pedestrian Leftism. And “journalist” after “journalist” for decades has retired just like Cronkite – and revealed themselves just like Cronkite. More

Fighting Liar with Fire: NY Attorney General Schneiderman Gets Successfully Sued

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Boom Goes the Pantaloons

New York Democrat Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is the hack-est of hacks.  A Leftist ideologue to the point of derangement – and complete dereliction of his actual duty.

Rather than looking after the legal needs of the residents of the Empire State, Schneiderman has spent much of his time tilting at climate change windmills – embodied mostly by a years-long persecution of oil company ExxonMobil.

Schneiderman has engaged in all of this nonsense as his part in a larger Leftist campaign: “(T)wo Rockefeller family foundations have been involved in an advocacy campaign that accuses ExxonMobil of covering up what it knew about climate change….Rockefeller foundations have funded journalism enterprises that have produced stories that overlap with the advocacy agenda….And this cavalcade of fake news served as the precursor to the New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman-led years-long very real legal persecution of ExxonMobil.  Which is simply the next phase of the Rockefeller Foundation’s calculated assault against ExxonMobil.  For having the audacity to engage in legal commerce – providing our nation a vital resource.”

Want some irony?  This whole anti-Exxon assault is allegedly predicated upon Exxon “covering up what it knew about climate change.”  So how hilarious is it – that Schneiderman is covering up evidence of his part in this larger Leftist campaign?  And that his legal abuse of Exxon – is being undone by a lawsuit?:

“New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman is hiding emails showing he is colluding with wealthy environmentalists to take down ExxonMobil, a conservative legal group argued in court Tuesday. More

The Don Quixote Clown Show That Is the New York Attorney General’s Office

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Attorney General
Eric Schneiderman de la Mancha

The Donald Trump presidential election and ensuing Era has left the Left plumbing new depths of abject disbelief in Reality.  Their desperation has led them to serially, incessantly chase fake news as if it is actually news – on all of which We the People look in disbelief.

We just yesterday had a day-long House hearing – in which nigh every Democrat asked after a fact-free allegation that there was some sort of coordination between the Trump campaign and Vladimir Putin’s Russia.  This has been the Democrat mantra – for going on a year now.  There remains zero evidence of any such collusion.  Yet the Left continues its Don Quixote impression – tilting at yet another windmill.

Who exactly was Don Quixote?: “(A) Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedera…(about) an hidalgo named Mr. Alonso Quixano who reads so many chivalric romances that he loses his sanity and decides to set out to revive chivalry, undo wrongs, and bring justice to the world, under the name Don Quixote de la Mancha….Don Quixote…does not see the world for what it is and prefers to imagine that he is living out a knightly story….”

“Russia hacked the election” – is a Quixote-esque fantasy.  But of course, the Left’s very many Don Quixotes predate by decades the electoral arrival of Trump.  And very few if any have done windmills and delusion better than New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Schneiderman has spent the last several years doing what very few people would consider the actual job of the Attorney General of New York – hounding international oil and gas company ExxonMobil.  How Exxon conducting its global business is germane to the chief law enforcement officer of one particular state – is light years beyond me.

NY’s Government Assault on Exxon: Coordinated in Advance with Leftist Groups

Seton Motley | Less Government | LessGovernment.org

Lubricated with Lots of Leftist Loot

Remember when the Donald Trump transition team asked the outgoing Barack Obama Energy Department for a list of the staffers working on Obama’s global warming – oops, I mean climate change – alarmist agenda?  And the Left and the media (please pardon the redundancy) absolutely freaked out about them asking?  And the Obama Energy Department refused to comply with the (very reasonable) request?

Team Trump was absolutely on the right track – but, unfortunately, didn’t continue down it.  Trump has so far kept on board hordes of Obama holdovers – and they have been incessantly burning him ever since.

Team Trump was right to ask – because personnel is policy.  Bad, radical personnel – leads to bad, radical policy.  For instance, bad, radical government officials (like, say, those working on bad, radical climate policy) will work with bad, radical outside groups – to end run the rule of law and manifestly harass law-abiding private companies.  For having the temerity to engage in lawful commerce – which this bad, radical gaggle happens to loathe.

How do we know this?  How did Team Trump likely know this?  At least in part because of Trump’s home state of New York – a particularly bad, radical example of just this sort of anti-law, anti-freedom, anti-Reality government. More
