Biden Admin Facing Backlash over Climate Crackdown on Dishwashers

by Nick R. Hamilton, Slay News:

President Joe Biden’s administration is facing a major backlash over plans to crack down on the use of dishwashers in American homes.

The Biden admin has proposed a regulatory crackdown on dishwashers as part of a sweeping fight against the perceived threat of “climate change.”

However, a coalition of over a dozen industry and consumer groups has issued a scathing criticism of the plan.

More Golden (and Black-Gold) Proof: The Dollar is Totally Screwed

by Matthew Piepenburg, Gold Switzerland:

Ever since day-one of the predictably disastrous and politically myopic insanity of weaponizing the world reserve currency against a major power like Russia, we warned that the USD had reached an historical turning point of slow demise and increasing de-dollarization.

We also warned that this would be a gradual process rather than over-night headline, much like the slow but steady death of the USD’s purchasing power since Nixon left the gold standard in 1971:

Bix Weir is back to talk about banksters, the “TRILLION DOLLAR” silver market and the fact that at this point pretty much everything we have ever been sold or told is a LIE.

The Recipe for $150 Oil

by Jim Rickards, Daily Reckoning:

How do the wars in Ukraine and Gaza impact global economic growth and the U.S. economy in particular?

Both wars are ongoing and cataclysmic impacts may yet be felt. Here’s where events stand at the moment. Let’s start with the war in Ukraine…

From a strategic perspective, the situation in Ukraine resembles a smaller-scale version of the situation in Europe in late 1944. At that point, the Allies had successfully completed the D-Day invasion and liberated Paris.

Zelensky Claims Russia Is Planning A “Nuclear Attack” At Zaporizhzhia Plant

by Mac Slavo, SHTF Plan:

Ukraine’s president Volodymyr Zelensky said that Vladimir Putin’s Russian forces were preparing to unleash a radiation leak at the Russian-controlled Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant. This tit-for-tat about false flag radiation attacks and nuclear war is not new either.

The World Health Organization has said that the ruling classes should prepare their slaves for radiation emergencies, while Russia claims it’s Ukraine that will use a “dirty bomb” to attack.

European Newspaper Says Citizens Better Get Used To Not Having Electricity All The Time

by Nick Pope, Watts Up With That:

One of the biggest newspapers in the Netherlands is warning its readers that Dutch citizens should get accustomed to the notion that electricity will not always be available to them in the future.

NRC, one of the largest papers in the country, published a lengthy piece on June 14 warning that the Netherlands’ green transition is driving up electricity demand more quickly than needed supporting infrastructure can be built, a situation that will likely lead to grid reliability issues if the status quo is maintained over the coming years. The authors describe how a transition away from affordable, reliable and conventional energy resources and toward green energy generation — like solar and wind — is teaming up with growing demand attributable to the country’s push to electrify industry and other parts of everyday life could overwhelm the country’s power system.

Iraqi parliament calling to ditch US dollar for oil trade

from The Cradle:

Washington has exercised strict control over Iraqi oil revenues for the past two decades

The Finance Committee in the Iraqi parliament made a statement on 31 January calling for the sale of oil in currencies other than the US dollar, aiming to counter US sanctions on the Iraqi banking system. 

“The US Treasury still uses the pretext of money laundering to impose sanctions on Iraqi banks. This requires a national stance to put an end to these arbitrary decisions,” the statement said.

“Imposing sanctions on Iraqi banks undermines and obstructs Central Bank efforts to stabilize the dollar exchange rate and reduce the selling gap between official and parallel rates,” it added.

Nord Stream Pipeline Bombing, One Year Later

by Harley Schlanger, LaRouche Organization:

With NATO moving to Plan B to fulfill their intent of breaking apart Russia, it is crucial that the reason behind it is made clear.  Seymour Hersh has provided part of the story — the Biden administration blew up the pipelines to prevent Germany from falling “under the sway of Russia.”  The deeper reason is rooted in the geopolitical doctrine of the British Empire, of acting to prevent a German-Russian alliance, which would threaten the power of the Anglo-American Unipolar Order.  German experts have offered a peace plan to end the war.

DAVID BLACKMON: Climate Alarmists Are Finally Saying The Quiet Part Out Loud In Their Agenda

by David Blackmon, The Daily Caller:

The Los Angeles Times published an op/ed Friday in which it perhaps unintentionally poses the central proposition of the mythical energy transition: “whether our expectations should evolve in the name of preventing climate catastrophe.”

The op/ed is appropriately titled, “Would an Occasional Blackout Help Solve Climate Change?” It is a headline that tacitly admits a truth about the transition that boosters of renewable energy have been careful not to publicize: That the notion that generation sources with extremely low energy density like wind and solar cannot hope to be viable alternatives to generation with extremely high energy density like natural gas, nuclear and coal. It is a notion that defies the laws of thermodynamics and physics, and those are laws, not suggestions that can be discarded as a matter of convenience or, as in this case, in pursuit of a hyper-political agenda.

Lithium Batteries for Preppers: A Guide To Staying Energized And Safe

by Daisy Luther, The Organic Prepper:

Lithium batteries are the latest revolution in modern life.

It is amazing to see how this technology took over the whole world. They have been such a blast that people used to technical aspects of things, like myself, can’t help but wonder what will happen when the next generation of batteries makes it to the market.

California to Impose Equity on Electricity

from Moonbattery:

Under absolute moonbattery, equity can be imposed on anything imaginable — even electricity:

California governor Gavin Newsom is standing by the state’s soon-to-be-implemented “equitable” policy to base electricity bills on income, rather than usage, even as public and political opposition to the idea builds in the Democratic coalition.

Mass immigration has successfully converted California to a single-party system. No Republican has been elected to statewide office since 2006. But even some other Democrats balk at Newsom’s radicalism:

German Farmers Protest Economic Policy Forced by Failed Sanctions on Russia

from Sputnik News:

An analyst says the economic consequences of Western support for Ukraine have caused a “crack” in European society.
Germany was rocked by protests from farmers Monday over a planned cut in agricultural subsidies. Analyst Elijah Magnier says the continent’s mounting economic problems stem from failed Western sanctions against Russia.

Germany the Crisis in the Making

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

COMMENT: Marty, Germany is following your forecast, and even the courts just ruled that moving money from one designated purpose to another is unconstitutional. When will Germany wake up? Ukraine is destroying Europe, and they were the culprits that blew up the Nord Stream to hurt Russia but did more economic damage to Germany. Then Zelensky wants us to keep handing him money after he was responsible for our energy crisis. It is just unimaginable how idiots occupy our government.

China, Russia, and Iran Forge New Oil Agreements to Create New Energy Market Order

by Jose Nino, Big League Politics:

In the first week of June, China, Iran, Iraq, and Russia hammered out a series of agreements in the ambits of energy, logistics, and security.

Financial journalist Simon Watkins detailed some of the implications of these new agreements.

From a big picture standpoint, China is using its multi-decade “One Belt, One Road” economic project to turn the Middle East, as Watkins noted, “into a large oil and gas station by which it can fuel its economic growth to overtake the U.S. as the number one superpower by 2030.”
