Biden Putting Climate Change Agenda Over Energy Security – Linnea Lueken

The Heartland Institute

Heartland Institute Research Fellow Linnea Lueken was a guest on Fox & Friends Weekend on March 4, 2023 to talk about a leaked memo showing that the Biden administration is putting its climate change agenda ahead of energy security.

In her discussion with host Rachel Campos-Duffy, Lueken explains how artificially raising energy prices in America by moving away from fossil fuels is going to raise the prices of everything, especially food.

They never give up on an all-encompassing government censorship and propaganda machine.
How are people so oblivious to the fact that they’ve become the censors and propagandists?

We know they have virtually unlimited funds, and we know their methods. They have perfected the manipulation skills over the decades, and if you study one area of their success, like “Global Warming” you see this… ( CAGW is of course global warming, yet just insert COVID in its place and you will see how it flows and applies equally well.)

“”Yet these proposed CAGW (COVID) remedy laws do greatly increase government power and wealth for some international bodies, some nations, as well as individual wealth for some corporations. However this increase in wealth for some is at great expense of many more. (One to two trillion dollars a year) Energy tax is always a tax on the poor. And it is this lure of global political power that is so seductive to souls in delusion seeking power. Does Power Corrupt (link)
Political proponents of CAGW (COVID) clearly state, in their own words, their political motivation. That motivation is support for socialism and by extension, statism and world government. While many are influenced to support the CAGW (COVID) agenda by different factors, the proposed solutions ALWAYS engender the political goals of statists, while having an immeasurable effect on atmospheric CO2 concentration and G.A.T. (immeasurable effect on preventing viral spread, or actually a negative effect)
Beyond political power objectives, the disparate factors which influence many to accept CAGW (COVID policy) are well studied social phenomena such as; personal wealth, and Institutional wealth. Researchers in many fields know that funding is available for their department if they can attach theoretical CAGW (COVID) harm to a paper. (There is hundreds of billions of dollars a year available for research and industry) As often quoted Upton Sinclair said “’It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” Other known and studied bias factors are peer pressure, social and professional shadow-banning, confirmation bias, noble cause corruption, misuse of the precautionary principle, and effective propaganda of repeated and false warnings of doom by many CAGW (COVID) proponents.
“The terrible truths of these experiments in human compliance and propensity to be beastly stand testament to the nature of the problem.”
milgram showed us how people will harm people if pressured by authority
asch showed us that people will ignore their own senses and perceptions when pressured by peer group
stanford showed us how easily humans can be egged into abuse of power”
As the world grows ever smaller via human technology, human systems and corporations grow ever more global. It is logical therefore that systems of human corruption can and would also became more pervasive and global in scale. The merge of One world Government and international business is not to be trusted. These people endlessly proclaim how they are doing this for the good of the world.”

Red pill a friend on global warming, and the rest will follow.

Injury and starvation is the current prime task of the globalists.

You’re psychic ain’t you?

Get a load of this for (were they?) unintended consequences

Headline:GPs ‘in crisis’: One in four say practices may close
GPs (general practitioners) are the front line of the UK Health Service – working in some strange ‘freelance’ franchise’ ‘self-employed’ sort of system.

And here’s 25% of them saying they’re gonna go out of business because of patient-numbers pressure and also financial pressure

We certainly know where the money was spent – did 50 Million UK folks get 3 vaccine jabs at £100 a pop – Just For Starters
And how much went, during lockdowns and furloughs, via The City of London into the house price bubble that inflated across all of Southern England?
Plus insane amounts of £££ propping up windmills..
and Holy Cow, do they need propping up

But patient pressure?
Surely Shirley, following the excess death rate brought on by the VirusThatCan NotBeNamed, in the years immediately afterwards there would an an Excess Life Rate.
i.e. The Virus would have cleared out a lot of elderly & infirm etc etc so fewer folks than average would be dying.

But no, the UK currently has an excess death rate greater than its been for 50 years.
(Strangely coincidental with the original oil/energy price shock of the early 70’s, doncha think)

And doctors on the front line are saying exactly this. They’ve no money and all their staff have walked out.

Here’s another idiot money pit:A real actual (financial) train wreck.
HS2 delays (Grauniad)

Starvation:” Latest Defra figures paint a bleak outlook for upland farms in England, as many question how they will remain viable in the future.
Farm business income <blah blah blah> are expected to fall by two-thirds for the current financial year (April 2022 to March 2023) to £16,000.
“Out of that figure of £16,000, the average family farm in the uplands would be expected to pay for the labour, rent and finance – it’s not even going to pay for the rent on a lot of farms,” said Mr Milton.

and these utter clowns idiots incompetents and muppets really actually think they understand ‘trapped heat’

Dependence on the government is the first goal, caused by leftists ruining everything that works in the US economy.
The ultimate goal is totalitarianism
Digital currency will be an important tool to implement that goal.

“They never give up on an all-encompassing government censorship and propaganda machine”.

Let’s be specific: “They” is mainly Democrats

And in their favor, at ;east Democrats are consistent – they censor and lie about EVERY subject, not just climate change. So we never have to wonder if they are being honest on the following subjects:

Covid vaccines
Nut Zero
Trump Russian collusion
January 6 protest
Ukraine history and their “progress’ in war
Open borders
Crime rate and who commits crimes
DOJ FBI persecution of MAGA supporters and Trump
+ Probably one dozen others I missed

Only State (dem) Sanctioned Narratives Allowed

Re-writing the tax code by eliminating basic accounting principles like depletion allowance for extractive industries will quickly kill investment and farm out energy dependence to other country suppliers and market manipulators. This accounting principle is what climate cultists have been alluding to without specifics until Uncle Joe put it in the many new tax bills for consideration. It’s the Bernie Sanders Imports-R-Us bill. Better load up on Vermont firewood–before Drax gets it.

Eliminating the tax code for ALL income taxes, both individual and corporate, will remove the need for any sort of “depletion” allowance, which is just the ability of producers to write off expenses for the well as the oil is depleted, not all at the time of the actual expense.

If there are no income taxes (including Medicare and social security), there is no need for any deduction from income.

The Fair tax will eliminate all deductions, credits, and everything that the Congress uses in the tax code for behavior modification. A national sales tax on all new commodities sold in the US will also hit all foreign manufactured the same as those made in the US. The elimination of all income and “payroll” taxes will reduce the cost of US products and make the playing field, especially vs made in China products, more even.

AND all the wind and solar and EV, etc. industries will have a come to Je$us moment to decide IF to keep their crap running OR cut their losses and just go bankrupt.

Of course the Federal government will need to eliminate all CAFE standards for corporate fuel economy. The ICE vehicle manufacturers will still make IC engines more efficient, they just won’t need to subsidize EV sales to the tune of thousands of dollars per ICE vehicle sold.

Linnea Lueken is a gold star author for my blog — meaning that every article she writes is worth recommending. Similar to every article by Anthony Watts. Lueken filled the big shoes of gold star author H. Sterling Burnett, who had been my favorite author at Climate Realism, and that is a huge complement.

Now that I have heard Linnea and seen her talk, I already knew she was smart, and now I have to add that she has a lot of charisma too. A great young spokesperson for real climate science.

Prices on everything are already going up.
The cursing I hear at the grocery store.
But where does it stop or can it or will it?

Based on M2 money supply growth, the inflation rate peaked last summer.
