Isn't it predictably wonderful to make this pinball heads bounce everywhere but admit Trump is a lying douchebag once you punch the flipper! Trump lied about the hurricane then doubled down on his lie by illegally falsifying Federal information. Wanna bet Breitbait and the other "news" orgs quoted by these dupes as sources, won't report it?

Don Bessee

Whew, time to fumigate and wash the sock puppets it reeks in here!

==========================================================================

So they finally admit what the hoax was all about -

The attorney who represented Christine Blasey Ford during Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court contentious confirmation hearings said in a speech earlier this year that Ford was motivated to come forward in part by a desire to tag Kavanaugh's reputation with an "asterisk" before he could start ruling on abortion-related cases.

The high-powered progressive lawyer, Debra Katz, made the remarks at the University of Baltimore’s 11th Feminist Legal Theory Conference, entitled "Applied Feminism and #MeToo." Her comments were first quoted in the book "Search and Destroy: Inside the Campaign Against Brett Kavanaugh" by Ryan Lovelace, which Fox News has obtained.

The Daily Caller News Foundation on Wednesday posted a video of Katz's comments.

“In the aftermath of these hearings, I believe that Christine’s testimony brought about more good than the harm misogynist Republicans caused by allowing Kavanaugh on the court,” Katz said in the video. “He will always have an asterisk next to his name. When he takes a scalpel to Roe v. Wade, we will know who he is, we know his character, and we know what motivates him, and that is important.

"It is important that we know, and that is part of what motivated Christine.”

I completely agree with what she said," Loftus said. "There's no way Eric McCormack was misquoted. He said exactly what he thought: 'Gimme a list of the people going so I know who I don't want to work with.' And Debra Messing was right there to back him up."

Tozer- Boy do you find skewed sources.

Recycling the fiberglass and composites in wind blades is so profitable that a company in Texas (GFS) will pick them up anywhere in the country for free. They hope to be able to process 8 tons an hour by the end of the year. It is rumored they will be building a second recycling plant in the midwest next year and soon will be using the same technology to recycle boat hulls.

Bill Tozer

J Barron

Well, the company best start driving 2,000 miles round trip to pick up those wind turbines. Nobody else can recycle them or wants them. Maybe some electric semis charged by coal fired plants will keep them rolling down the road, plus the drivers’ labor and bennies. There will be thousands of wind turbine blades to pick up as their twenty year life is expiring.

Walt

The only thing that comes up "GFS" is a chicken wing supplier.(well,, guitar pick maker is another)
Jigger's other sock puppet needs to do better.

Speaking of jiggered boob,, not a word from you to our top cop demanding the prosecution of the person who sold that scatter gun to the felon... You know,, private sales are illegal in Ca.
Post your letter to the cops! Demand action!!
Or are you just a hypocritical bastard with Daddy issues?

Sure bub, that recycling is really profitable. That's why all the centers are closing here in California. I heard from Kilroys here in GV that scrap metal is priced so low that they can't pick it up anymore. Maybe your sources are fibbing? And how do you recycle fiberglass? Give us the process so we can all learn.

Scott O

GFS - https://www.global-fiberglass.com/
The blades float to the facility on good thoughts and best wishes. The 'recycling' uses no energy at all. None. It's magic.
Anyone who tries to determine the carbon footprint of anything the greenies like is a 'terrorist' and needs to be shut out of polite society.
Ain't the Green New Deal just the bees' knees?

Don Bessee

The swamp creatures still stonewalling even after the IG report -

A congressional source confirmed to Fox News that more than 15 months later, the FBI has still not responded to a May 21, 2018 letter from Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, asking questions about FBI senior executives, their communications and their actions at the Jan. 6, 2017 Trump Tower briefing on the dossier.

The FBI declined to comment Wednesday.

The letter specifically asks about the timing of the FBI learning that media outlets had the dossier, FBI prep notes for the briefing and all communications between then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and then-FBI Director James Comey. The letter also highlighted an email exchange among senior FBI leadership from then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe with the subject line “Flood is coming,” indicating that CNN would soon go forward with a “sensitive story." That's believed to be in reference to the dossier.

Comey, CIA Director John Brennan, Clapper and National Security Agency Director Mike Rogers met with Trump at the meeting-- which dealt in part with the Intelligence Community Assessment into Russia’s election interference in the 2016 campaign.

The recently released inspector general's report on Comey indicated how the FBI director and his top deputies went to great lengths to confront Trump at the meeting about the salacious and unverified accusations contained in the dossier, which had been funded by Democrats and drafted by British ex-spy Christopher Steele.

So here is that recycler.

I have yet to find anyone buying their "product".

Bill Tozer

Rebane touched on the true costs of wind energy here:

https://rebaneruminations.typepad.com/rebanes_ruminations/2019/08/scattershots-6aug19.html#comments

The true energy usage of green products like turbines, panels, and batteries must includ the mining (from Africa, Bolivia, etc) transportation or raw materials, and energy used in production of manufacturing. Recycling has always been the big one. Need to be broken down and sent to special facilities, which require more energy.

Somewhere in posts past was a good article from a pro-electric car trade magazine that counted all the energy used to make the electric cars with batteries and for a 70k electric vehicle, one has to drive 110,000 miles before the energy reaches the break even point.

But, all in all, recycling is the big one. The chickens have yet come home to roost. It’s not like every facility is equipped to recycle every product. Not like shedding tires to add to asphalt.
————————-
Todd, last year I called around to get a junk small car towed off. I expected to get a hundred bucks or so per usual. They wanted $150 bucks to haul if off with pink slip, lol. I called another place which I have done business before and they said they don’t do take junk cars no more because the price of steel plummeted. At least small cars. Since the car was close to where they were and parked just off the highway, the owner agreed to pick it for free, but made it clear that they really were not interested and they don’t take cars out to the boonies no more. He did it as a favor for me. Don’t know the current price of metal, but now you got to pay them to haul it off. Just like a tow job. :)

Walt

Here you go ECO warriors. Get those recyclables good and clean, sorted and binned like good minions to the cause. Just for it to be sent to the landfill like all the rest.
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/jun/21/us-plastic-recycling-landfills
After i get my nickle and dime back from the State, I don't care where it goes. Yet the state will keep on spending on that losing operation... So your ECO nuts can feel good.

Scott O

Another electric car cost never counted - one of my neighbors is a fireman/emt. He's been telling me about the extra training and cost of rescuing people from and containing the waste of wrecked electric cars. All fire departments/rescue groups have to incure these costs. Costs have a carbon footprint that is magically whisked away in the moral superiority of the greenies.
Ain't magic fun?
It gets rid of reality you don't want to know about.

Walt @ 6:15 pm

Oh boy, 8 tons an hour sounds like a lot. What, 8-10 blades a day, lol.

“The facility is currently capable of processing two or three blades per day, or 2-3 tons per hour on an eight-hour shift. At full production, expected by the end of 2019, the plant will be able to process eight tons per hour.”

“As far as wind turbine blades are concerned, GFS charges system owners to collect decommissioned blades. The turbine owners would otherwise have to pay for collection and landfilling. Some counties are already banning turbine blades from their landfills, Englund noted.”

In the meantime........my sources may or may not suck. Bloomberg New Energy Finance and closer to the stink, they might as well be non recyclable of all practical purposes in the here and now. Maybe they will be turned into some coffee table you can buy at IKEA.

Well RL,, don't blame US!! As I recall(very well I might add)
the ECO gang of the 70's and 80's were all about saving the trees. Plastic this and that was the way to go! Remember? McD's was evil because the burger boxes were made of paper, and so were the cups!! EVERYTHING made out of trees was evil!
Then the great push to recycle paper. The PV fire dept did a great job. We had 10 semi trailers loaded in no time... And there they sat.. for months. No one wanted the damned stuff.I'm surprised they still ain't sitting there.
The ECO gang demanded a replacement for glass.. So they got it. Plastic bottles.
Your the ECO guy here,, you come up with a solution. Plastic was your side's big idea.
Yet what are we going back to? That's RIGHT!! Paper,, made of trees!

rl crabb

I never claimed to be any kind of "ECO" guy, Sasquatch. You're right about going back to paper. Hopefully, it will catch on in Asia. And remember, those fish you eat come from the same ocean you don't give a shit about. And the beef (no bun intended) with McD's was over styrofoam as I recall.

Todd Juvinall

I see RL Crabb is as uninformed as usual;. And namecalling as usual as well. But hey never let the facts get in the way of a story. As far as what to do with plastic? Recycle it dumbkoff. And in America, some really stupid sasquatches do just that. They turn that plastic in to lawn furniture and deck boards. Ever heard of TREX? Anyway, you should probably stay away from this blog so as not to be seen as the dumbass you are.

And maybe if you have a beef with the ocean treatment, head your ass off to Indonesia and the far east. They are the polluters. Get off your chaise and do something good.

I can handle the Sasquatch tag,, Thanks RL. Styrofoam is just another form of plastic. Same difference.
So DO reference the place where you say I "don't give a shit about" the oceans. "Your side" has made plenty of wild claims about it that really don't hold water.
If something dies out there somehow man had something to do with it. No matter what.

I wonder if this counts as a “lie” to our local political truth squad......?


”Joe Biden appeared to have gotten burned during his turn at CNN’s seven-hour-long #ClimateTownHall featuring 10 of the remaining Democratic candidates for president. Both an audience member and CNN’s Anderson Cooper claimed that Biden, who had signed a no-fossil-fuel-money pledge was meeting the next day with an executive of a natural gas company.


Probably not.....after all Orange 🍊 Man 👨 Bad!

I'm just going by the comments I see here. "After I get my nickel and dime, I don't care where it goes." And Toddy? "Sure, bub. That recycling is really profitable. That's why all the centers are closing here in California." Your memory is as short as your wit.
All this retro regulation crap you guys seem to get off on doesn't make much sense. You want to shitcan air standards. Don't you want your grandkids to breathe clean air? Don't you think efficient lightbulbs might save a few bucks on that bloated PG&E bill we're all going to get in the near future?
I can rail on regulations with the best of them, and I have been for thirty-odd years, especially when it comes to the cost of building houses. You'd see that, Toddy, if you put down your coloring book and buy a copy of my book, "Once Upon a Village." The Nevada City planning commission would cringe when they saw me coming.

The Presidents diplomatic/military seismic changes in the west pacific and Indian ocean to the Arabian gulf have destroyed the chi coms belt and road dreams.

Even the PI has had enough and take joy at Xi losing face. The bully looks to have a bit of a bloody nose does he not?

World
JIM GOMEZ,Associated Press 28 minutes ago

MANILA, Philippines (AP) — The Philippine president has acknowledged he's short of solutions to press China to adhere to Manila's arbitration victory in their South China Sea disputes after he said Chinese President Xi Jinping told him flatly: "We will not budge."

President Rodrigo Duterte spoke for the first time about his talk with Xi about the thorny disputes in a televised news conference Wednesday night where he was asked what move he would take next. Duterte, who has nurtured friendly ties with China, met Xi in Beijing last week.

"They're claiming it as their own and the bad part is that they are claiming it as their historical right and they have the control over the property," Duterte said. "That's our problem... If you can help by suggesting, is there any other suggestion? Or have you heard of any sane solution short of going to war with China saying, 'we will not budge'''?

The Philippine leader has long been criticized by nationalists and left-wing groups for not immediately demanding Chinese compliance with a 2016 ruling by an arbitration tribunal in The Hague that declared China's claims to virtually the entire South China Sea invalid under the 1982 U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea.

The ruling also upheld the Philippines' sovereign rights over a wide stretch of waters called the exclusive economic zone, where Chinese territorial claims have delayed for years Manila's plan to explore and extract potential undersea deposits of oil and gas.

Duterte said he raised the arbitration ruling in a meeting with Xi and other Chinese officials and he quoted the Chinese leader as replying almost in a whisper: "You know, our statement was 'We will not budge.' We don't want to discuss that because it's ours. We own the property. Why should we talk to you?"
Duterte said he reacted by telling Xi that, "It will remain a problem. It will be ... just like a sore thumb that sticks out painfully every day."

Xi at that point tried to shift from the topic, and Duterte said he did not press on, knowing the Chinese president has been preoccupied by anti-government protests in Hong Kong.

"Out of courtesy, I said, 'Well, I will not, maybe, insist on your answer now. I am not satisfied with your answer, but I will not ask for any other answer. I'll just remain where I am, where I started considering that you are under stress by the incidents in Hong Kong.'"

"They have a problem so he's hot-headed. We should time it. You know, the art of diplomacy," Duterte said. "If a person loses a child or is left by his girlfriend, he'll really be hot-headed."

Your claims about the 70s and 80s are absolute and utter bull crap. Probably gleaned from your local NRA white supremecist faction. I was a contractor for SPI during your time frame and we sold waste pulp for, among things, paper bags. The ecos including the Sierra Club loved it. You and Todd simply spew lies and expect no one to call you on it. Just like Trump.

From a person that can draw clever cartoons but can't follow a logical line...
"So what do you geniuses suggest we do with all this plastic? Just dump it in the ocean? Have any of you seen the videos of the dead birds out there on Midway, carcasses full of plastic? I'm waiting?..."
This issue, my dear boy, was about the large amount of plastic crap that the green new deal folks are foisting off on the world.
If you are truly concerned about deceased birds (you are not) then check out what those giant wind blades do to birds.
Crabb is like all so-called greenies - full of shit.
No intelligence, no knowledge, but full of 'good intentions'.
Good intentions, are - as we have learned since a few centuries ago the stuff the road to hell is paved with.
The topic is the cycle of carbon in the production of energy and it looks like once again, the greenies have no clue. The blades need to be dealt with and it takes energy to do that. Or just bury them in huge pits.
Would Crabb like to pay for either choice?
Crabb just left the building and will not entertain us with any further thoughts.
When I say 'thoughts' I'm being kind.

from Crabby - "Glad you you know what "I" am really concerned about."
Oh, I'm sorry - I based it solely on what you wrote.
If you have a problem expressing yourself, maybe I can help you.
Do you really give a shit about birds or not?
It's your call.

Still waiting for Crabb to back up his shit.
He's pretty quick with the insults but very slow to prove his point.
Waiting dude.
Back it up or pack it up.

But Crabb!! Fracking was the cause of burning water.
Nice fear tactic.

And jiggered Barron. as for that white supremist crap, talk to Dougy. He's the local klan member.
As for the NRA, dipshit,, they were the first ones to stand up against "good ol' Southern" Democrats plans to keep guns out of the hands of Black minorities. Not really the kind of work a white supremacist ORG would do.
So you and jigger can go become the creature with two backs.

RL, when you bring up clean air standards... are you including CO2? Do you think can have clean air and continuing CO2 emissions, not including the 40,000 ppm CO2 you exhale with every breath?
