The operator of a German nuclear power plant, PreussenElektra, rejected the government’s plan to send its plant into reserve operation in case of an energy emergency because it considers the proposal to be technically unfeasible, German media outlet BR24 reported.

Hahaha, The German government has no idea how nuclear power plants work if they think they can use them like peak power plants. I'd be cheaper to move than pay these winter power bills, I think.

Germany’s biggest gas importer, Uniper, requests government support to cover losses from its attempts to replace Russian gas

How did the gas companies not see this coming? Or was it more profitable to fail?

Setting price limits on Russian natural gas will only cause further problems for the EU energy market, Vladimir Putin says

The carnage is going to be epic!! The EU wants their people made at Russia, but the people know the issue is squarely and properly placed on their politicians. Those phonies probably shouldn't poke the bear, or their population will be taking more than their mansions.

MSNBC host Joy Reid speculated that the classified documents allegedly seized by the FBI during their raid against Donald Trump could be connected to murdered CIA agents in 2021.

There were a lot of compromised assets in cheena and other places. Turns out, when you used trackable devices in countries with good COIN, and you hire employees without a good vetting practice this is what you get. If you follow COIN activities, you could basically watch the US uptick their spy presence by hiring and travel, and then watch the body count start to rise. Oh yeah. Russia and chyna cleared house, and it had nothing to do with Trump.

The punk rock band Dropkick Murphys' frontman Ken Casey delivered a series of profane rants against supporters of former President Donald Trump and his MAGA agenda, saying that anyone who buys "those fucking hats" is "part of the problem."

It'd be boring to just burn all my DKM merch from over the years without a pint. Thank god I have Paulaner Oktoberfest to help keep things going.

The U.N. urged America to "develop reparation proposals" for descendants of the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

Hahaha. You know which countries sit on that committee, right? It's basically china and her allies. We are being trolled.

Hours before Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey declared “a major step forward to secure our border” with the installation of 130 double-stacked shipping containers, hundreds of migrants found their way around them, belying his claim. The wall isn’t the issue it was in 2018 when Congress denied Trump funding for one of his top priorities, prompting the longest government shutdown in U.S. history.

The containers aren't great, but what the story doesn't say is that most illegals just go around them to other areas that are open like federal lands or tribal lands. Search for an article where "someone" took a dozer and just just plowed through a section of fence.

Having lived near the border, at least they aren't driving armored vehicles through those containers. They can't see through them. They can't shoot trough them with any accuracy. They are something fast and effective that can be improved upon later.

California will fine automakers if they do not meet the state’s quotas for electric car manufacturing, the New York Times reported Thursday.

Sad. People will just buy their cars in a neighboring state and drive them back to CA. If GM still want's to sell their cars in CA, then they are going to have to start buying all the electric car startups out there. Canoo was already swallowed up, but there are a few still left.

China is ramping up its censorship even further. Censors edited the ending of the film “Minions: The Rise of Gru” — according to posts and screenshots shared on the social media platform Weibo.
