'Rick Perry Suggests Texans Voluntarily Go Without Heat to Fend Off Scourge of Socialism

The former [Texas] governor turned Trump energy secretary thinks people freezing to death should hold off a little longer.

[...]

While all of the state's energy sources share in the blame of the power crisis, proportionally, it's basically all natural gas's fault. "Texas is a gas state," [...] an energy-resources professor at the University of Texas at Austin, told The Texas Tribune. "Gas is failing in the most spectacular fashion right now." ([...] even if Texas did use a higher proportion of wind to run its state, it wouldn't necessarily be wind's fault for the outages. As many have noted, wind turbines operate just fine in Antarctica; Texas was warned to winterize its infrastructure a decade ago in order to be able to churn out electricity in freezing conditions and apparently chose not to.)

Of course, those facts haven't stopped other Texas Republicans from weighing in with their very wrong opinions. "This is what happens when you force the grid to rely in part on wind as a power source," Representative Dan Crenshaw [eyepatch Euron Greyjoy, but with more bigotry] tweeted[...] "When weather conditions get bad as they did this week, intermittent renewable energy like wind isn't there when you need it." [Right, no wind during storms.] In another long thread, he wrote, "This raises the obvious question: can we ever rely on renewables to power the grid during extreme weather? No, you need gas or nuclear."' ['A benefit of geothermal energy is that it is not intermittent like solar and wind power, which means it can be used at any time of the day, any day of the year.' 'Austin was one of the first cities in Texas to use geothermal energy for heating. In fact, even the State Capitol [building] was originally heated by geothermal water.'

'Geothermal energy can be used in areas where the temperature outside is below freezing. You can extract energy easily as the temperature inside the ground nearly remains constant all the year long.'

'Is Texas' Energy Future Geothermal?

[...] the unique geothermal sources deep below the Texas turf are largely untapped.

[...] While enthusiasm in the state's geothermal potential persisted for years, the natural gas glut unleashed by fracking ultimately drowned it out.'

https://blog.firstchoicepower.com/green-power/texas-energy-future-geothermal/#:~:text=It's%20thought%20as%20much%20as,ranges%20above%20212%20%C2%B0F.

And there are these things called batteries....] 'Then he blamed everything on…California:

[... Crenshaw tweet:] "#1: It's a once in a century weather event. California has constant energy problems and high prices."' [The last time the generators froze in Texas was in 2011. Climate change is probably increasing the severity of the polar vortex, so this will most likely be happening more often....

'Texas failed to learn from 2011 snowstorm, reports suggest'

https://www.statesma...ted/6780847002/
]

'"#2: The reason for blackouts is complex, but in summary: Texas took too many lessons from Cali, over-subsidized renewables, & pushed out baseload energy like natural gas."

[...]

"Texans would be without electricity for longer than three days to keep the federal government out of their business," Perry is quoted as saying. "Try not to let whatever the crisis of the day is take your eye off of having a resilient grid that keeps America safe personally, economically, and strategically."

[...]

"Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
@AOC
Republicans could trip over their own shoelaces and they'd still find a way to blame me, immigrants, LGBTQ+ people, the Green New Deal, BLM, anything but accept responsibility for their own actions and dealings.

Ineptitude, bigotry, and corruption. Disasters in their own right."'

'Conspiracy Theorists Are Now Claiming The Snow In Texas Is Fake Because It "Doesn't Melt"

[...]

Since the storm, which left millions without power and killed nearly 50, people across the internet have posted videos claiming the snow in Texas was fake, created by Joe Biden, according to some, or Bill Gates, according to others.

The false conspiracy theories conjectured Biden or Gates dumped all the fake snow on Texas to push an agenda to reverse climate change[...]

In a couple videos, some people even attempted to demonstrate the snow was fake by heating a snowball over an open flame to show it "didn't melt," or even putting it in the oven like one guy did.

[...] In reality, when a solid so cold is heated so rapidly, the solid becomes a gas immediately as opposed to moving from solid to liquid to gas, which we're most used to.

The process, known as sublimation, is very well known by scientists [and psychoanalysts]'

'Fox News' Tucker Carlson has apparently decided to attempt to gaslight everyone in the world—truly an ambitious goal—into believing there is no such thing as QAnon.

Only a month ago Carlson was rushing to defend QAnon believers after legislation was introduced that could bar those who disseminate QAnon rhetoric, and anyone who participated in the January 6 attack on the Capitol, from holding a federal security clearance.

He claimed on his show QAnon is all a leftist conspiracy and doesn't really exist—because his team couldn't find an official website, even after spending "all day" looking.'

'Earlier this week, Rep. Marie Newman (D-IL) spoke in Congress about why passing the Equality Act—which would prohibit discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation—is very personal to her, as it would offer protections to her transgender daughter. [...] But Newman's support for her daughter has clearly enraged QAnon-supporting Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), who posted a video of herself hanging up an anti-trans poster outside of her office, across the hall from Newman's. It reads: "There are TWO genders MALE & FEMALE. 'Trust the science!'"'

'Stephen Miller Accuses Biden of "Cruel" and "Inhumane" Immigration Policies

Stephen Miller, the former White House adviser behind the Trump administration's decision to enforce family separations at the border, kept a straight face as he railed against President Joe Biden's immigration policies on Wednesday night for their "cruelty and inhumanity." Appearing on Fox News' The Ingraham Angle, Miller responded to Biden's decision to revoke a ban on legal immigration that Trump imposed last spring by arguing that the "astonishing action" would lead to "limitless amounts of low-wage visa workers" stealing jobs from Americans. Right on cue from host Laura Ingraham, who complained of "unaccompanied minors flooding across" the border, Miller pivoted to the Biden administration's decision to reopen a Trump-era migrant child facility in Texas.

"What we are seeing here is the cruelty and inhumanity of Joe Biden's immigration policies," Miller said. "He came into office and announced that there's an open door, and that young people who come into this country illegally are going to be resettled instead of returned. He is forcing thousands of young children into the arms of smugglers, into the arms of traffickers, into the arms of coyotes... That is cruel. That is inhumane," [...] Miller appeared to have none of the same concerns when he pushed for the "zero tolerance" policy that allowed thousands of migrant children to be separated from their families under Trump.'

'China Swears It's Not Giving Anal Swabs to U.S. Diplomats

[...] Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian insisting to gathered reporters that: "China has never asked U.S. diplomats in China to go through anal swab tests." But the U.S. State Department has a different story—a spokesperson told Vice that China has admitted to giving diplomats anal swabs in error, and has promised that it won't happen again. The spokesperson said: "The State Department never agreed to this kind of testing and protested directly to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs when we learned that some staff were subject to it."

The Daily Beast reported earlier this week that U.S. conspiracy-theory communities have gone into freakout mode over the reports, baselessly claiming such testing was coming to ordinary Americans.'

'QAnon Shaman Whines: Trump Groomed Me and Millions of Others

[...] [his] lawyer [...] wrote in a court motion that he was essentially "groomed" by Trump in the lead-up to the Capitol attack. The motion[...] also argues that [his] "faith precludes him" from receiving a coronavirus vaccine, so he should therefore be freed for his personal safety.'

'Golden Statue of Donald Trump Unveiled at Hellish CPAC Meet

When Donald Trump breaks his post-presidency silence with a speech on Sunday, he'll do it in the presence of something he has almost certainly always dreamed of—an enormous golden statue of himself. Bloomberg News reporter William Turton shared footage of the golden Trump being wheeled into Conservative Political Action Conference on Thursday. The statue appears to depict Trump wearing flip-flops and star-spangled boxer shorts and wielding a fairy godmother's magic wand. [...] when one staff member politely asked a CPAC attendee to put his mask on, "he turned toward her, coughed, and kept walking."'

'The statue—which has conjured some comparisons to the Bible's golden calf [the golden ass? ...] Video[...] shows the statue being rolled in by two people in suits as the room erupts in cheers. A woman can be heard saying "awesome" as the statue passes by her. Another patron of the conference can be heard chanting "four more years" but trails off after no one joins in.

The idol is apparently being used for a photo booth set up by Look Ahead America, a nonprofit created by former Trump staffers. According to Open Secrets, Look Ahead was one of CPAC's biggest sponsors this year.

Twitter is now having a field day mocking the statue.'

'CPAC Attendees Boo, Shout "Freedom" When Asked to Wear Masks

During a break in speeches, American Conservative Union executive director [...] took to the stage to remind the crowd that the Hyatt Regency Orlando required masks. "We conservatives believe in the rule of law, because we know that when the laws enforced, our rights are protected," [...] "And I know this might sound like a little bit of a downer, but we also believe in property rights, and this is a private hotel and we believe in the rule of law. So we need to comply with the laws of this county that we're in."

[...] then turned it over to Patrick, who awkwardly reiterated that when attendees are seated in the ballroom they should be wearing a mask, prompting many in the audience to boo her. As a chastened Patrick acknowledged that "it's not the most fun," several people could be heard chanting "Freedom!" as Schneider pleaded with them one more time.'

Okay guys, I just spent about an hour going over the most ridiculously funny shit that people have made to make fun of what went down at that CPAC event. Hooboy, there are some doozies. I'm sure we will see them trickle in to this thread over the next few days. But I just gots to get this one up, cause it tapped my funny bone pretty hard.

Do you think they rehearsed singing the National Anthem or did they just outsource the assignment to a private contractor that gave them the lowest bid?
