Bonhoeffer’s Theory of Stupidity

Dietrich Bonhoeffer argued that stupid people are more dangerous than evil ones. This is because while we can protest against or fight evil people, against stupid ones we are defenseless — reasons fall on deaf ears. Bonhoeffer’s famous text, which we slightly edited for this video, serves any free society as a warning of what can happen when certain people gain too much power.…

The Illusion Of Choice, Paid Endorsements and Your Vote

Today's political system has become an illusion of choice, a game of paid endorsements and deceptive, manufactured narratives. It's been going on for a while. In the 2024 cycle, no one signifies this fraudulent practice more than the Ron DeSantis campaign.

Sundance of Conservative Treehouse has been on this fraud going back to the 2016 campaign and beyond.

Here's the article. Definitely worth the read.…

Even Oliver Stone is starting to question the 2020 election

STONE: Well, I don't know the facts. And I think I would trust the accountants more than the politicians. And I'd like to know what the accountants, the guys who vote, who know the most about votes, who do the Electoral Commission's, you know. I can't take Biden's word for it on anything.

The 5 biggest hurdles to offshore wind in Maine

November 27, 2023

by Lori Valigra

EXCERPTS

Construction costs

High interest rates related to inflation in the nascent offshore wind market were one of the factors that caused Danish wind developer Orsted to cancel two projects under development off New Jersey in late October.

In early November, U.K. lawmakers said they are considering raising subsidies for new offshore wind developments to meet climate goals because…

Aroostook power corridor faces opposition from landowners

Legislative malpractice the level of which has not seen since the passage without debate of the 2008 Expedited Wind Law. FOLLOW THE MONEY and put an end to this broad daylight robbery of Mainers. There is no way these gangsters won't be repelled if the fighters keep fighting. LS Power is just now realizing what they have walked into. Send them packing along with the gang from First Wind that is Long Road.

NERC Warns of Potential Power Shortages This Winter amid Limited Natural Gas Infrastructure - New England High Risk

If your pipes freeze and your home floods, be sure to thank an "environmentalist" and the dunderheads in charge, for making sure that no new gas pipelines will be coming into Maine anytime soon. This despite Maine's proximity to Pennsylvania and what is likely the largest recoverable supply of natural gas in the nation. (Marcellus). It is way past time to put the adults back in charge. These uneducated and ill equipped arrogant fools are going to get people killed.

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
