Gas Prices September 26, 2023

There’s a lot of gas price mentions in the news these days. More and more looming threats that a barrel could get to $150. This is my first real look at gas prices for 2023 mainly because prices seemed to level somewhat, though never to pre-2021 prices.

The price comparisons listed for each state below is September 2022 to September 2023. Most all have increased however the projection is that these prices will all go up significantly.

This is a continued study in gas price changes after Joe Biden took office in January 2021. I am tracking the following states: California (West), Idaho (NW), Minnesota (N-mid), Pennsylvania (East), Florida (SE), Texas (S-mid).

They want us in a race war

It’s outrageous what ‘they’ want to happen to this country. It’s clear they want all of us fighting each other in a forever non-declared civil war between citizens. Nothing official, nothing declared as real but still pushed right up to the line of an actual war.

Who are they? Anyone pushing hatred and division to keep us at odds.

Tom MacDonald has created several songs and videos with messages similar to the one below. He, along with other musicians, performers, and behind the scenes talent with the same desire to stop this nonsense, are working hard to get people to see the truth. There are many who have tried to get people to listen but sadly there are too many devils sitting on too many shoulders telling too many lies.

This is the comment I made on the video:

Everything millions of people have been saying is wrapped up in this song. They want us fighting! They want us fractured into so many pieces we no longer know who we are, what we stand for, or where we fit in.

Black, white, old, young, man, woman, dem, rep, liberal, conservative, gay, straight, religious or not… it’s all to keep us trusting no one because there will be no one to fully trust. Alliances become shades of gray or simply fade to nothing.

Unfortunately, there are some who will attack others just for the thrill of it and therefore turning the other cheek and ‘letting it all happen’ is no longer going to work. I don’t want to fight but I will if it means living or dying. Just Jill

This chaotic whirlwind of hate is created and fueled by powerful individuals and organizations that find joy in watching it all burn. The lust for power and the greed of money keeps them pumping garbage messages into the system; messages we eat up like liquid candy.

What is the answer? Live and Let Live doesn’t work anymore. Telling people we don’t care what they do in the privacy of their own homes doesn’t work anymore. Activists and politicians love to see us stab at each other and they push the hate. They want us to accept what they spew as truth and take it upon ourselves as a new way of life.

An endless list of circumstances has been put into play that will make every citizen a slave to the government. Our money will be worth nothing and we will need to sell what we have for scraps of cash and then have nothing that isn’t granted to us by those in power.

The best way to do this is through distraction. Some of the best distraction is hatred of those different than us and they have created an endless list of those differences so we have no allies in any direction. Even liberals are having a hard time determining which new minority or special classification is better than another and sacrifice some to their own grinding machine; the social media mob.

Those pulling the strings are usually invisible; identifying them is the challenge. Harmony is the last thing they want because that means people are getting along. It means families are working as one, neighbors are helping each other in their daily lives, it means people have friends who are dedicated to each other, and it means happiness is prevalent in society.

They can’t have that! They must keep hatred so strong in our daily lives that we can’t remember when times were better; and millions of individuals can tell you that times were better!

So what’s the answer?

Remove their flow of money, remove them from office, take away their power, remove their masks and show the world who they really are, dig up and expose all of the systems they have put into place to keep us fighting, expose who starts the lies in the first place by tracing back to the source, and lastly… stop listening to them!

The Six W’s of Journalism

Anyone who took journalism in school was taught about the Five W’s. Anyone who knows anything about what journalism should also know about the Five W’s.

Today, however, it appears there are Six W’s.

Apparently journalists are not taught about them the way they used to be nor in any way that resembles what it should be.

WhoWhatWhenWhereWhy (and occasionally How).

If a journalist sticks to these 5 rules while on assignment and investigating a story, they will come back with facts that readers can consume.

While I was in journalism class, we were also told to give our stories some flare. Here is where some of the trouble began.

The stories I turned in contained the 5 W’s but not enough flare; not enough interest was generated when reading my assignment. In other words, it was boring.

Back then it was hard for me to grasp the concept of writing a news article with just facts while also writing it in a way that created interest. I just didn’t get it because in my eyes generating that kind of interest required imagination and embellishment I didn’t quite have yet.

So here we are in 2023 and anything boring is considered a death signature for the career of a journalist. If you can’t generate a name for yourself that stands out over and above your story, you’re just another nobody that no one want to know.

There are some news organizations that have been caught telling their reporters to generate stories or focus on certain types of stories or just certain individuals. That’s okay if you’re truthful about your purpose as said organization.

If, however, you are advertising your organization as a news organization that reports all news regardless of who it’s about, well then… you better not get caught telling journalists they can only focus on certain things while ignoring others.

Here in lies the problem; we are desensitized to the normal, everyday event which isn’t a big deal except we are now desensitized to some of the most horrendous events. There’s so much sensationalism in reporting that we just don’t care. I’ve read headline after headline that should have shocked me but meant nothing more than the weather.

Why is that? A picture like this should create an emotion of tragedy and sympathy; maybe even a desire to help and the will to do it.

One reason for the lack of give-a-damn is that when I do happen to get into the article, I often find that the event that actually took place is nothing like the headline. It’s misleading; it’s click-bait.

This picture could read “Hurricane wipes out family home” but when I click to read it, the article may end up being a clever way to create a need for insurance with the article coincidentally containing a handy-dandy phone number for my convenience. It may indeed speak of a tragic event, but the way it’s written leave me not caring.

Another reason is so many people are reporting the same thing in a more sensational way to get over the heads of other reporting the same thing. They must be louder, bolder, slap my face harder!

One more reason… they are no longer trustworthy. How many times have you read or heard a report just to find out later that it wasn’t true, or it was exaggerated? How many times have you heard a pundit take a normal subject and blow it out of proportion while claiming to be a journalist.

Pundits are not journalists, but many journalists are acting like pundits.

What is the sixth W, I hear you ask. Here is what I’ve come up with and just to be clear, I wrote this down on a pad of paper a number of years ago and it sadly has not gotten better with time; it’s actually much, much worse.

WhoWhatWhereWhenWhy… and…

Whether or not you want my opinion, you’re getting it!

Trump’s Decision for 2024

For years the Democrats, the media, the entertainment industry, the far Left, and social media has been trying to get rid of Donald Trump. Now he’s on the verge of announcing another run for the White House and he may just get rid of himself. I hope I’m wrong!

Gas Prices November 15, 2022

Now that the Mid-Terms are over and the dust is still settling, lets see if the gas prices have been affected. At the moment, it appears prices have gone down in the six states I’ve been reviewing the last couple of years.

This is a continued study in gas price changes after Joe Biden took office in January 2021. I am tracking the following states: California (West), Idaho (NW), Minnesota (N-mid), Pennsylvania (East), Florida (SE), Texas (S-mid).

Gas Prices October 30, 2022

On October 27th, Joe Biden made the following claim. “Today, the most common price of gas in America is $3.39 – down from over $5 when I took office.”

Remarkably even CNN & MSN are fact checking it as a false statement.

CNN: In previous remarks, Biden has discussed the state of gas prices in relation to the Russian invasion or the summer peak, not in relation to when he took office. Regardless of his intentions in his remarks on Thursday, though, the price of gas might well be the single most important price in the midterm election campaign, and this speech was the second this fall in which Biden described it inaccurately – both times in a way that made it sound more impressive.

MSN: During a Thursday speech in Syracuse, New York, Biden accurately said that gas prices, now averaging about $3.76 per gallon, have declined by roughly $1.25 since this year’s June peak of over $5 per gallon. But then he claimed, “Today, the most common price of gas in America is $3.39 – down from over $5 when I took office.” People in the audience applauded.

Gas Prices October 17, 2022

The month of October is seeing gas prices increase once again. California increased the most going from $5.883 to $6.059 on average. As Biden asks Saudi Arabia to postpone their OPEC cut by a month, many people wonder if this coincidentally corresponds to the November mid-term election or if it simply corresponds to the mid-term election.

This is a continued study in gas price changes after Joe Biden signed his Executive Order eliminating thousands of jobs. I am tracing the following states: California (West), Idaho (NW), Minnesota (N-mid), Pennsylvania (East), Florida (SE), Texas (S-mid).

Genital Mutilation vs Mastectomy

If you look at the world today vs the world just a decade or two ago, things have changed dramatically. It’s not as if we weren’t already going to this place we now reside, it’s that the moment to advance ripened for those wanting to push drastic changes. If nothing else, the year 2020 was a laugh in the face of the notion we should have 20/20 vision. We keep looking back and we keep not learning.

There are several articles and websites dedicated to the banning and horrors of female genital mutilation and several dedicated to the joy and benefit of transgender surgery. I agree with the notion that genital mutilation is a horrible practice but I do not agree that gender changing surgery for children or teenagers is a good thing based on the notion they are uncomfortable in their bodies.

Gas Prices September 27, 2022

Let’s look at gas prices in September 2022. Notice that the prices in the states I am watching have gone down (other than California). Question for everyone, what will happen once our reserves are completely drained by Joe Biden’s order? It feels a lot like he’s trading the US security for a vulnerability none of us can overcome. Doesn’t that make him a traitor to our country. Is the word treason too harsh? Why would he do this to us? There’s money and power on the line and he is owned by those who will do whatever they want to our country.

Twenty-One Years Later on 9/11

The citizens of the United States, regardless of political belief, came together after terrorists attacked our country and killed 2,996 of our fellow Americans in 2001.

Sadly, instead of those enemies being eliminated, they have multiplied. For example, the Biden administration continues to allow our southern border to be overrun by illegal aliens swarming our land after his own words of encouragement. It has been proven that some of these people are known terrorists and it’s unclear how many are within the interior.

DEFCON Insurrection – The Red Sermon

Joe Biden’s speech on September 1, 2022 was purposeful and telling. It was his hope (and that of the Democrats) that these menacing and destructive words would cause his enemies to flame up and swarm the capitol. He may not have written the words but based on the delivery and lack of gaffes, these were his words.

Make no mistake, the Left’s wet dream is DEFCON Insurrection.

Biden’s Philadelphia Speech Transcript

See my post regarding this speech. Below is the transcript and below that are the screen shots from the White House website of his speech. This may seem a bit much but I don’t necessarily trust that they won’t change the speech transcript since they won’t even send me the email updates their site promises.

UPenn Trans Swimmer Nominated for NCAA Woman of the Year

I wonder if they chose Sylvie Binder over Lia because Sylvie deserved it based on her abilities or because she is a real woman and not a dude pretending to be a woman. Do I dare say ‘both’ reasons?

Southwest Airlines Flight Attendant Awarded $5 Million After Airline Fires Her for Her Pro-Life Views in 2017

The CDC is Finally Throwing the White Flag on Covid-19 Regulations

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is in full retreat on Covid-19 restrictions, over two years into a pandemic that has reached endemic stage and after 99% of Americans have survived with natural immunity from prior infection.

The CDC on Thursday “loosened many of its recommendations for battling the coronavirus, a strategic shift that puts more of the onus on individuals, rather than on schools, businesses and other institutions, to limit viral spread,” the Washington Post reported.

44 Percent of Pregnant Women Miscarried After Receiving Pfizer Vaccine

Gosh maybe if the CDC and other agencies, activists, and other assholes had not pushed vaccines on the public, people would have made a choice of their own choosing.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

White House Touts Lower Gas Prices Despite Prices Being 67 Percent Higher Than When Biden Took Office

This one can be proved simply by reading the gas price articles here on Freedom Lover USA. I have been keeping track since January 2021 to show what it was when Biden took office vs what it becomes after his policies.

North Dakota School Board Votes to Forgo Saying Pledge of Allegiance Before Meetings

A North Dakota school board has nixed reciting the Pledge of Allegiance before each meeting — deciding it didn’t align with the district’s values.

The Fargo School Board voted 7-2 Tuesday to drop the Pledge from the start of its bi-weekly meetings because members didn’t feel it was inclusive, apparently taking issue with the phrase: “under God,” according to North Dakota newspaper Inforum.

Board member Seth Holden said that because “the word ‘God’ in the text of the Pledge of Allegiance is capitalized … the text is clearly referring to the Judeo-Christian god and therefore, it does not include any other faith such as Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, all of which are practiced by our staff and students.”

Elite, All-Female Nashville School to Allow Any Student Who Identifies as Female

WHO Moves to Change Name of Monkeypox to Avoid Being Racist

Monkeypox has been around since 1958. The world’s population has managed to live with that name since then. It was a commonsense name at the time; research monkeys in Denmark were observed to have a pox-like disease (HotAir).

I literally never thought of this in a race-driven way until the WHO mentioned it. Once again, organizations and activists pointing fingers should do so while looking in the mirror. They are promoting racism and bringing it to the surface in an attempt to keep it alive or, more likely, create it out of thin air.

Biden Officially Signs Inflation Reduction Bill

No one with half a brain believes this will reduce inflation including the Democrats with half a brain. They should have called it the Poverty Creation Bill.

Media Outlets Rush to Rename “Inflation Reduction Act”

Twitter users took several media outlets and reporters to task for no longer using the term “Inflation Reduction Act” to describe the massive spending bill President Biden signed into law on Tuesday. As the bill came closer to being signed into law, more media outlets began referring to it as a “climate and health” bill instead, citing nearly $369 billion going toward investments in “Energy Security and Climate Change” (Fox News).

Liz Cheney Loses Seat to Trump-Endorsed Harriet Hageman

Britain’s Royal Air Force Begins Rejecting Applications From White Men to Meet Diversity Goals

The Human Brain & Getting Along

The human brain is a marvelously mysterious and incredible thing. It protects us from harm, brings us closer to other humans, and helps us when we aren’t even aware of it. It classifies everything we look at without even thinking about it. Well, that’s not true; it is thinking, we just don’t realize that’s what we’re doing.

Try looking at a sign in your native language and ‘not’ reading it. Impossible unless you see it so quickly that the brain does not compute the message. But even then, it probably did compute it and we just don’t know how to get at the information.

When we see something or someone, our brain immediately tries to identify what it is seeing. Instinct comes into play and the brain decides as quickly as possible if what it is seeing is beneficial or dangerous. It asks questions. The order that it asks is debatable but still important. I believe we subconsciously think 1) safety 2) possession 3) consumption 4) desire 5) longevity.
