Chuck on the right side
THIS IS A BLOG THAT TRIES TO APPEAL TO THE AVERAGE CONSERVATIVE CITIZEN AND HAS NO AGENDA OTHER THAN TELLING THE TRUTH AS WE SEE IT.
Have you noticed that the Democrat left has pivoted away from praising a non-praising event like the disastrous Afghan withdrawal, and have now jumped onto the destruction that Hurricane Ida has caused, touting that their bogeyman “Climate Change” is the major threat facing us? In their biased eyes if it's too cold in winter, it's climate change; if it's too hot in summer, it's climate change; if it's a hurricane, it's climate change; and if we have forest fires, it's climate change. To them it's a one-size fits all – everything negative in the world, is caused by climate change.
Let's take the latest hysteria emanating from the Democrat left – Hurricane Ida was caused by the Republicans because they generally are against the liberals cry of eminent disaster due to climate change. Do these leftist Democrats (which includes most of the party with only few exceptions) really think that Hurricane Ida was caused by man-made climate change? Let's look at the number of hurricanes from the year 1851 to the recent present.
Fact # 1 - between 1851 to 1860 – we had 19 hurricanes, 6 were major hurricanes (category 3 and 4).
Fact # 2 – between 1991 to 2004 – we had 14 hurricanes, 5 were major hurricanes. (similar figures up till today)
Conclusion: If carbon dioxide causes global warming (a/k/a climate change) because of humans using fossil fuels and riding around in gas-guzzling SUV's, that supposedly caused a change in the climate by the use of those “evil items”, then what was the cause of those hurricanes between 1851 and 1860? Please, don't try to gaslight me and say fossil fuel consumption and SUV's.
But, according to the Democrats, any kind of catastrophe should not go to waste as a political tool to advance their agenda. And so it is with Hurricane Ida. Imagine using the plight of the thousands of victims of Hurricane Ida for the purpose of partisan political gain? Shame on the part of the leftist Democrats for their outrageous behavior, but it is par for the course.
Does any right thinking person (no pun intended) really think we humans can control or change Mother Nature? Will we, by using renewable energy, driving electric vehicles, and becoming vegetarians etc., really have an effect on the climate and Mother Nature? If yes, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.
Joe Biden is nothing more than a presidential puppet whose strings are being pulled by leftist ideologues such as, Bernie Sanders (an avowed socialist), the Squad, and those two phony legislative leaders, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. Are they really looking out for you or are they really just looking to gain political power for themselves and the hell with the rest of us? Everything they seem to do is geared towards political gain and not for the good of the country as a whole. Their socialist oriented proposals, which haven't worked anywhere else in the world, are being shoved down out throats because they have control of the legislative and executive branches of government. They are rushing their agenda and proposals as they fear their hold of the legislative branch will be ended in the off-year election of 2022. That's the reason for expediting the passage of their monstrous leftist spending bills being pushed by the Democrats, Joe Bide, and a handful of RINOS.
With Biden's disastrous pullout of Afghanistan and the resulting backlash from the citizenry, Democrats are using Hurricane Ida and the threat of climate change as a diversionary tactic to take the public's mind off the Afghan mess. Let's hope that Americans don't fall for the leftist Democrats' “snake oil”, and in 2022 use their vote to throw the rascals out and bring some sanity back into our great country.
