Gen. Flynn Exclusive: 10 INDISPUTABLE FACTS on the 2020 Election That Argue for Audits

Comment by Willem Post on July 30, 2021 at 9:08am

The extremist factions of the Dem/Progs, such as the Pelosies, the Quad, the Bernies, etc., have taken over the federal government.

They have NO MANDATE


They grabbed power as a result of "winning" the fraud-filled, win-at-any-cost, 2020 Election.

They knew they had to do anything to "stop Trump and stop MAGA".

He was, and still is, a DIRECT threat to their existence.


The extremist factions are playing at government and wreaking havoc by the THINNEST OF MARGINS.

If any of their extremist proposals gets stalled, such as Pelosi’s radical, 818-page bill HR1 – known as the “For the People Act”, they go into ballistic, "fake hysteria-mode", i.e., waving arms, making faces, threatening, name-calling, making ludicrous statements

Their handmaiden, legacy US Media is helping out to keep the pot boiling.


The extremist factions are using the federal government to make major changes to US culture.

They know they have about 2 years to wreak their havoc.


The extremist factions propose TRILLION-DOLLAR federal programs that would make the power of the federal government, IN THEIR HANDS, unassailable, and would make the US akin to a Third World basket case.

Our enemies, such as China, Russia, etc., love it.

The EU is worriedly shaking its head.

The EU, very dependent on fleecing the US, using "rules-based" trade, needs a stable, reliable US for its purposes.


Dem/Prog extremist mandates include:


- The US people marching in step, such as wear masks, get shots, fight climate change, etc. See Note

- Encouraging younger people to engage in demonstrations, violence, looting, burning and killing cops and others, as part of compensating the aggrieved/short-changed groups.

- Indoctrinating younger people with BLM, CRT, the 16,19 Project, and other psycho-babble, to achieve increased command/control


People who resists are called vile, enemies of the state, resisters, and deniers.


The extremist factions are using scorched-earth MASS IMMIGRATION, from at least 160 Third-World countries, as one tactic to implement their command/control, and THEIR “browning” of America.


The extremist factions are ENTICING people from Asia, Africa and South America

The US airlines are making big money shilling for Dem/Progs. See URL

Nobody is paying for it, because all costs are ADDED TO THE NATIONAL DEBT


The Founding Fathers are rolling in their graves


NOTE: Part of the big scheme, is for radical Dem/Progs to be in command/control of a growing US government and expanding that command/control.


As part of “fighting global warming/climate change, the fossil fuel industry has to be destroyed, because it is a major pillar of the traditional powers.

Millions of heavily subsidized, 500 to 800-feet tall wind turbines, that produce expensive, variable, intermittent, grid-disturbing electricity, and hundreds of square miles of heavily subsidized, solar panels, that produce variable, intermittent, grid-disturbing, day-time-only electricity, are two such measures to achieve their command/control

New England states are aiming to reduce CO2 emissions to “fight global warming”. The federal government and each state provide all sorts of subsidies to build renewable energy systems.


This article describes:


1) Two methods of calculating the CO2 emissions per kilowatt-hour. Both are on fed-to-user-meter basis.

2) How these CO2/kWh values are used to overstate/hype the CO2 reduction of EVs and heat pumps

3) Why the CO2 reduction, metric ton/y, of EVs and HPs is much less than calculated by RE folks


The EPA Proscribes Two Methods for Calculating the CO2 Per Kilowatt-hour


Method 1 is “location-based”. It is based on physical conditions, i.e., science-based

The CO2 of each electric power source on an electric grid is calculated, based on fuel consumption.

This method is used by the Independent Systems Operator of New England, ISO-NE.


Method 2 is “market-based” It has nothing to do with physical conditions.

The CO2 of each electric power source on an electric grid is calculated, based on the terms of commercial contracts.

This method is used by the Vermont Department of Public Service.


Per international convention, the EPA declared wind, solar, nuclear, hydro, biomass (i.e., wood chip burning), farm methane, etc., as having zero CO2 emissions, for bookkeeping purposes. 


NOTE: Electricity travels, as electromagnetic waves, at slightly less than the speed of light, i.e., almost 1860 mile in 0.01 second, i.e., from northern Maine to southern Florida in 0.01 second! The electrons largely vibrate in place at 60 cycles per second.


It is nonsense for RE folks to talk of the “Vermont Energy mix”, or the “New Hampshire energy mix”, or to use a “paper PPA energy mix”. These fictitious mixes have no physical basis.


BTW, if electricity did not travel that fast, the operation of electric grids would be physically impossible.


Method 1, Location-Based


NE Grid CO2 Emissions, as calculated by ISO-NE


In 2019, about 82% of electricity loaded onto the NE grid was generated in NE, and 18% was imported. See Note and table in epa URL


The ISO-NE-calculated CO2 emissions for 2019 = (30.997 million US ton, see iso-ne emissions URL x 2000lb/US ton x 454 g/lb)/ (97,853,000 MWh, NE generation, per epa URL) x 1000 kWh/MWh) = 288 g/kWh, fed-to-grid basis, or 288/0.908 = 317 g/kWh, fed-to-user-meter basis, i.e., consumption based, if total grid loss = 2.5%, NE grid + 6.7%, distribution grids = 9.2%.


The grid CO2/kWh will be slowly decreasing as more low-CO2 electricity generators, such as wind, solar, nuclear, hydro, biomass (i.e., wood chip burning), farm methane, etc., are added to the electricity mix of the NE grid.


NOTE: Since 2004, lower-priced electricity has been imported to serve NE demand; much of it is Canadian hydropower. The CO2 of the imports does not count toward NE grid emissions, by convention, because that CO2 is assumed to be counted in the “jurisdiction of origin”. See URL


Method 2, Market-Based


Vermont Electrical Sector CO2 Emissionsas calculated by VT-DPS


VT-DPS, without providing any calculations, announced the CO2 emissions of the VT electrical sector were 1,000,000; 810,000; 490,000; 190,000; and 130,000 metric ton, for 2015 through 2019.

See page 36 of URL


The VT-DPS emissions were almost entirely “market-based”, i.e., based on “paper” power purchase agreements, PPAs, that VT utilities are legally required to have with the owners of in-state and out-of-state electricity producers.


If utilities did not have such PPAs, they would be drawing electricity from the NE grid without contracts, which is the legal equivalent of stealing!


Physically, VT utilities draw about 95% of their annual 6.0 billion electricity supply, from the NE high voltage grid; the remaining 5% is fed to utility-owned distribution grids, such as rooftop solar. See Note


Because of losses, about 5.6 billion kWh/y arrives at user meters, a distribution loss of about 100 x (1- 5.6/6.0) = 6.7%


VT-DPS-calculated CO2 emissions for 2019 = 130,000 Mt/y / 5.6 billion kWh/y = 23 g CO2/kWh, fed-to-user-meter basis, i.e., consumption based. 


Comments on Image


The below graph of the VT electric sector (blue) has been deceptive for many years


For example, in 2019, its CO2 was about 5.6 billion x 317 g/kWh = 1,773,918 Mt, based on ISO-NE fuel data.  


However, in 2019, its CO2 was about 130,000, per VT-DPS market-based method!!!


That method enabled GMP to proclaim itself to be 96% CO2-free, without spending one dime.

Unfortunately the military has been compromised since Oblahblah did his big flush of military upper echelon , he forced out over 200 generals, admirals, and other high command people that failed 'his' questionnaire when they stated they would not fire on American citizens. So now with have the likes of General Milley that in so many words can't wait for the chance to fire on American citizens!

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"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."

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


(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 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?" 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.”

Sign up today and lend your voice and presence to the steadily rising tide that will soon sweep the scourge of useless and wretched turbines from our beloved Maine countryside. For many of us, our little pieces of paradise have been hard won. Did the carpetbaggers think they could simply steal them from us?

We have the facts on our side. We have the truth on our side. All we need now is YOU.

“First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win.”
