Russian-collusion probe sputters into a search for . . . what again? By Deroy Murdock – June 20, 2017

Have you ever found yourself in the middle of an elaborate story when, suddenly, you have no idea why you are telling someone about, say, the time that you sliced up the soles of your feet while perched atop jagged coral in Cancun? “What’s the point of all this?” you ask yourself, half aloud.

Russia!-Russia!-Russia!-gate has become just like that.

For more than nine months, Democrats and their henchmen in the old-guard media have spun an elaborate tale about Donald J. Trump scheming with Vladimir Putin to steal the White House from Hillary Clinton, who supposedly was born to run America. That yarn has unraveled, as even high-profile Democrats including Senator Dianne Feinstein and Representative Maxine Waters of California concede, there is no evidence of this…

Coal In America Is Already Clean. Why ‘Clean Coal’ Is A Boondoggle That Needs To End.

The president, at the Iowa rally, stated that EPA regulations will be rolled back. There are different grades of coal. Most likely, technology exists where clean and efficient burning on an industrial level exists. For mass industrial consumption, Bituminous coal is probably used in black or brown grades. Anthracite, usually will be better suited for home use. I have been looking into coal as an alternative heat source, as power outages continue here on Long Island, NY, and locally, we lost power (and heat!) in March. The biggest hurdle has been neighbors, who went insane when in discussion, I told them that I want to have an 1869-type caboose stove installed for coal, and they made complaints to stop me, though I never went forward of researching. All of the progressive neighbors surrounding me, know nothing of Anthracite coal or its comparison to wood, which incidentally, they burn. An inspector stopped by, as the complaint was that “black smoke” was exiting my chimney. Odd. I installed a $12K heating system only last year, that has a different exhaust outlet, and the chimney is sealed off with concrete. The inspector raised his eyebrows and apologized for the intrusion, as he had to entertain the complaint. Coal. Over 800 million (+) tons Anthracite in reserve right here in America. Not counting industrial Bituminous reserves. It’s also very inexpensive in comparison to other fuel types.

A power plant once heralded by the Obama administration as the poster child for clean coal is now on its deathbed.

The plant hemorrhaged billions in cost overruns despite being heavily subsidized by the federal government. Mississippi regulators are ready to pull the plug.

Southern Company’s Kemper County Energy Facility had intended to use carbon capture and sequestration technology to gasify the coal, but instead, the plant has been running on natural gas since 2014.

The Mississippi Public Service Commission has unanimously passed a motion that the plant should only use natural gas moving forward.

The Obama administration touted the Kemper plant as a leading example of how a power plant would operate under climate change regulations for new power…

China Pushes U.S. Aside in Pakistan

Peace and Freedom

Development and debt seal relationship while Americans find ‘getting message out is a challenge’

ISLAMABAD—Pakistan’s ruling power structure has long been summed up with the saying “Allah, Army and America.”

China is now staking a claim to supplanting the U.S. with tens of billions of dollars of investment, an embrace that promises Pakistan economic benefits and saddles it with debt—ensuring the relationship will last.

Chinese President Xi Jinping has made Pakistan his flagship partner in a program to spread Chinese-built infrastructure—and Beijing’s sway—across Asia and beyond. Pakistan has so far signed on to $55 billion in Chinese projects, many of them guaranteeing China a high return on its investments and granting tax breaks to Chinese companies.

Former President Barack Obama’s “Asia pivot” is giving way to Mr. Xi’s infrastructure juggernaut, in a model that could be replicated…

Chicago Police Pension Goes Bust

??!!!

Centinel2012

Chicago’s police pension fund won’t have enough money to pay benefits to retirees in 2021, according to a projection by Local Government Information Services (LGIS). At the end of 2020, LGIS estimates that the Policemen’s Annuity and Benefit Fund of Chicago will have less than $150 million in assets to pay $928 million promised to 14,133 retirees the following year.

This is the fate of state and local pension funds. There is a storm gathering on the horizon and of course these state and local governments will be raising taxes to try to stay afloat. The system is collapsing and it is totally unsustainable. This is the very same crisis that destroyed the Roman Empire.

Suicide Bomber Blows Himself Up as Saudis Foil Mecca Plot

Peace and Freedom

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — A suicide bomber blew himself up near the Grand Mosque in Mecca as police disrupted a plot to target the holiest site in Islam just as the fasting month of Ramadan ends, Saudi security forces said Saturday.

The Interior Ministry said it launched a raid around Jiddah, as well as two areas in Mecca itself, including the Ajyad Al-Masafi neighborhood, located near the Grand Mosque.

There, police said they engaged in a shootout at a three-story house with a suicide bomber, who blew himself up and caused the building to collapse. He was killed, while the blast wounded six foreigners and five members of security forces, according to the Interior Ministry’s statement. Five others were arrested, including a woman, it said.

Saudi state television aired footage after the raid Friday near the Grand Mosque, showing police…
