Which is worse, Obama's plan to shut down coal plants, or McConnell's "plan" to fight it?


President Obama is about to release a plan to fight imaginary global warming by shutting down coal fired power plants. Coal fired power plants produce a lot of carbon dioxide, which is a key element in the imaginary theory that CO2 causes global warming. I say imaginary because (1) there hasn't been any global warming in 18 years, (2) man-made CO2 accounts for only about 3% of global CO2, which is mostly natural, and (3) CO2 is a tiny percentage of the upper atmosphere, and is not present in enough volume to be substantially trapping heat.

But Obama's plan to shut power plants is very real. To use one of his favorite words, he's on an "Environmental Crusade", only his target this time isn't Christianity, but the electricity that powers our homes and businesses. Obama wants to replace coal with wind and solar, which is exponentially more expensive and unreliable in times of darkness (which seems to happen every day!) and times of little wind.

In the strongest action ever taken in the United States to combat climate change, President Obama will unveil on Monday a set of environmental regulations devised to sharply cut planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions from the nation’s power plants and ultimately transform America’s electricity industry.

The rules are the final, tougher versions of proposed regulations that the Environmental Protection Agency announced in 2012 and 2014. If they withstand the expected legal challenges, the regulations will set in motion sweeping policy changes that could shut down hundreds of coal-fired power plants, freeze construction of new coal plants and create a boom in the production of wind and solar power and other renewable energy sources.

The "boom" the Times refers to will either plunge millions of Americans into darkness, or increase their electricty bills by a factor of five or ten. Or both.

“Climate change is not a problem for another generation, not anymore,” Mr. Obama said in a video posted on Facebook at midnight Saturday.

Actually, it's not a problem for our generation either. But let's turn to our hero, Mitch McConnell. He's from Kentucky, a big coal producing state. Surely he has a plan to fight this insanity.

Senator Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, the Republican majority leader, has started an unusual pre-emptive campaign against the rules, asking governors to refuse to comply. Attorneys general from more than a dozen states are preparing legal challenges against the plan. Experts estimate that as many as 25 states will join in a suit against the rules and that the disputes will end up before the Supreme Court.

Good plan. Fight it in court. Wait, who's been stacking the courts for the past six and a half years? Obama? Maybe not such a good plan.

There is a way to stop this, but McConnell will never, ever do it. All he has to do is attach a provision to the next budget in the fall or the vote to raise the next debt ceiling. All the provision would need say is that "No expenditure of funds of the federal government shall be used to enforce rules which place limitations on emissions of CO2." Problem solved. Instantly. Really. No years of court battles.

Of course, Obama would veto a debt ceiling increase or budget without a provision, and then

The Federal Judge putting Hillary under oath is asking the wrong questions


I read with great interest how federal judge Emmett Sullivan is requiring Hillary Clinton and two of her assistants to answer questions under "penalty of perjury", which means, simply enough, that if they are caught lying they can be sent to jail. However, the questions Judge Sullivan is putting to them, especially Hillary, are not the right ones and this perjury risk is not as great as it might seem.

What's wrong with this headline: "Black caucus brings diversity push to Silicon Valley"


Diversity is good except when it isn't. When you see a Politico headline which reads " Black caucus brings diversity push to Silicon Valley", it looks a little odd, because an exclusionary group that only permits people of one race, the Black Caucus, is pushing a different group, Silicon Valley, to have more diversity. In fact a few years ago Congressman Stephen Cohen, who has a lot of black constituents, requested permission to join the Black Caucus but was refused because he was white. Ditto for the United Negro College Fund and other groups that focus on people of one race, while hypocritically calling on other races to support them.

“My district is right next to Silicon Valley, and for years and years and years, my constituents have been part of those who have not had access to these opportunities, even the ones who have the qualifications, background and skills,” said Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), who’s helping to lead the black caucus’ tour next week.

Does anyone really believe that Silicon Valley is turning away thousands of qualified black engineers?

I am royalty born in a commoner's body and society is discriminating against me


I was born in the body of a regular person, but in my mind, I feel I am royalty. I can't help this feeling; it's just the way I am.

And no one calls me "M'Lord" or even apologizes for retreating from my royal presence without leave.
