Think of this as an addendum to the idea that “it’s getting strange out there”. More Proof! President Biden is now up to 63 Executive Orders, a record! More than any other president in the history of the country, at any time and for any reason. He is clearly besotted with the idea that all he has to do is sign a piece of paper, and he gets to change the world.

Breitbart has listed all sixty three for us, and we can probably assume that there will be many more to come. No reason to assume that he will stop at sixty-three, when he’s having fun. You should probably save the list, as a reminder when the next election rolls around.



It’s Getting Very Strange Out There! by The Elephant's Child

From Weasel Zippers: “The Biden Energy Department Allegedly Blocked Texas From Increasing Power Generation Because it Would Violate Green Energy Policy” Texas asked to temporarily lift regulations on energy output to avoid disaster. Biden’s DOE refused to help because of “green energy standards.”

From FEE (The foundation for Economic Education) 10 Crazy Examples of Unrelated Waste and Partisan Kick-Backs in New ‘COVID’ Bill Starts out with $1 Billion for “Racial Justice” for Farmers. and $50 million for ‘Environmental Justice’ Grants, and $112 Million for California Transit Project (Covid?) $10 Million for Native American Language Preservation and goes on from there.

Here’s Stephen Miller on how Biden’s Immigration reform bill will impact the economy and jobs.

It’s getting very strange out there. On February 22, two members of Congress (D) sent a letter to the CEOs of companies like AT&T to question their use of information from Fox News, suggesting that Fox contributed to a growing distrust of public health measures necessary to crush the pandemic. They suggested that Fox News has long been a misinformation rumor mill and conspiracy theory disseminator. I find this appalling. The Congress people in question were Anna G. Eshoo and Jerry McNerney, both California Democrats. But really! This is highly improper, and it is not in the job assignment of members of the House to decide where the American people may get their news. Perhaps it would surprise these two to learn that Republicans don’t necessarily agree with Democrats, and that is not a bad thing. We will hope to show them the errors of their ways.

We have moved from town criers to newspapers to radio to television to the internet and each move changed America. Today we are in the age of “fact-checkers”, ordinary people who have claimed the authority to ban people from speaking, including the President of the United States and the nation of Australia. The picture above is of Texas in the midst of a climate disaster, unable to get proper assistance because of the federal government’s current illusions about “green energy” or windmills and solar power, which simply do not work. That seems to me to be pretty clear evidence that we need more and better information, and a lot fewer “fact checkers.”
