Bad policies fuel fires: John Stossel

“Mother Earth is angry!” says Nancy Pelosi. “The debate is over around climate change!” says California Governor Gavin Newsom, smirking, strangely. They’re eager to blame climate change for the wildfires in their state. I’m surprised they didn’t say it causes COVID-19, too. Newsom, ridiculously, says wildfires are another reason to get more electric cars on the road. I wonder if he even knows that electricity for such cars comes from natural gas. “This catastrophizing around climate change is ju...

OK, Here’s What You Need To Know About The Whole Pelosi As President Poli-Sci Fantasy

The idea of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) ascending to the presidency seems outlandish, little more than a Fox News fever dream or #Resistance fan fiction.  But it’s not entirely impossible — and, ironically, could be made marginally more likely by a last-minute attempt by President Donald Trump to muck with the election, a possibility that scholars, journalists and the general public has begun to game out. Though it would require some serious planetary alignment, there are mechanis...

U.S. House passes stopgap funding bill to avoid government shutdown

The Democratic-led U.S. House of Representatives passed a stopgap funding bill on Tuesday to keep the federal government operating through Dec. 11, after striking a deal with Republicans on aid for farmers and nutritional assistance to children.
