    Rolling blackouts are systemic, temporary power outages caused by failed D卐M☭CRAT environmental energy policy.

  3. I got it. Schools are closed because of no electricity, but empty streetcars continue run up & down Main St all day and all night. Sounds like something Trump would plan.

  4. Trump would make sure oil continued to flow through a major pipeline instead of transporting it on diesel exhaust-spewing semitrucks and trains.

  5. Basement Biden never would have stopped the pipeline if it had flowed through Libtard states. It talk of unity is total bullsh*t.

  7. Explain to me why China Joe Biden issued an Executive Order to shut down the Keystone pipeline that would heat everyone's homes and keep Ford Motor company manufacturing cars.

    Aren't you glad you voted for the Democrat Party so you can freeze to death, watch criminals control the neighborhoods and celebrate Transgender Pervert Day ?

    Nancy Pelosi has nothing between her ears other than hate. She has no idea nor does she care if Americans have natural gas to heat their homes or gas at reasonable prices to get to their jobs.

  8. In Texas: "Frozen wind turbines and limited gas supplies have hampered the ability to generate enough power, according to a statement from ERCOT." Oh, and, global warming!!

    More "green" energy is the solution/????!?!?!?

  9. Rolling blackouts are caused by piss-poor planning by the utility companies. Every industry should know what events could happen (like a deep freeze), what effect it might have and how to plan for it.

    The best thing that people can do to help in this crisis is to sit in the cold and dark with as many masks as possible on. It will help you stay warm.

  16. How you guys liking the green energy hell inflicted on us by those oh so brilliant and prescient Democrats?

    God what a mess. Texas has tons of natural gas, but, as John Belushi would say, But Noooooooooooooooooooooo! We wanna spend 92 trillion dollars and make the whole county suffer just like California!!!

    We were literally energy independent, but, oh nooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!! AOC wants us all to drive a Prius and stop cows from farting so the world will be a better place for all of the illegal immigrants coming to take your jobs.

    We were employing hundreds of thousands of people in the energy sector, but, oh nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! now they stay at home and play video games while wearing three masks and waiting for unemployment checks so they can buy baloney and white bread for Christmas dinner.

    Fuckin morons.

  20. It's happening because of green energy bullshit. The wind turbines froze in this weather and we don't have enough spare capacity to make up the difference. Yay Green New Deal!

  21. CBS did a big story on how bad off Texas is, but failed to mention the frozen wind turbines. They don't want you to know the truth.

  22. I feel great that I killed the Keystone pipeline with my Executive Order. Woo Hoo !! Who needs natural gas and electricity to heat their homes. Wear three masks and stay inside in the basement.

  24. Thank you, Basement Biden, for harming the nation's ability to produce energy efficiently, cheaply and abundantly in your first 30 days. You are so smart to know how to raise energy prices so Americans can pay more for gas and all the other goods they buy that depend on transportation to get them to where they live without raising the cost of those goods because of transport costs. And thanks for shutting pipelines so the oil needs to be placed on diesel-exhaust spewing semitrucks and trains instead of flowing more cleanly through the pipelines.

  25. Just wait, 7:44, just wait. Biden has only been in office about 5 weeks. He's already on a roll with dumb decisions. Maybe you and Adam Schiff can tell us where's the proof of Trump-Russia collusion.

  26. Gas at the pump has already gone from $1.71 a gallon to $2.29 a gallon under Biden; a 58 cent per gallon increase.

    If a worker uses 20 gallons a week to go to commute to work, run errands etc. that is already $600 a year out of their pocket.

    The 58 cent increase per gallon represents a 34% increase in gas prices. At this rate of increase it will soon be $4.00 a gallon like it was under the Obama / Biden years.

    Everyone in Washington D.C. will be making lots more lobbying money.

  28. But you fucktards said $5.00 gas would be here by now. It's not and not even close!! Don't says it's coming either, because that means you don't know. Why is there no $5.00 gas when you fucktards said it would be here by now?? Huh?? How come you fucktards don't know and are always lying about it? Where is it?? You said it would be here!!!!

  31. Cheer up Americans. Biden's $1.9 trillion stimulus plan includes a $50 billion payoff to Andrew Cuomo and New York to fix their bloated, broken budget.

    Even though Cuomo murdered 12,000 elderly in nursing homes and lied about it; China Joe Biden still is going to give the good Governor a $50 billion payoff.

    The New York government bureaucrats will be rolling your tax dollars with increased salaries and fat pensions while you freeze in the Midwest thanks to Democrat Party energy policies.

    Be sure to turn off the lights and wrap up in a sleeping bag. That is what they do in North Korea you know.

  34. Where is the $5.00 gas? How come you guys said it would be here and it isn't??? Why is gas so low right now when you said it would be $5.00??? Huh? Thank you Joe Biden for keeping gas prices low and the stock market high!!!

  35. Those gas prices just keep going up and up and up under Biden.

    Those Executive Orders by Biden are killing the energy industry.

    Blackouts, Americans freezing to death when we have the largest natural gas and coal reserves in the world is the result of Biden / Democrat Party policies.

    This global warming sure is a bitch.

  38. Germany must be controlled by the same Progressive idiots we have here in America.

    "Germany is held up as the world’s solar and wind capital by “renewables luvvies” but Germans are freezing through winter due to “millions of solar panels blanketed in snow” and turbines sitting idle, according to Rowan Dean.

    But as we speak millions of solar panels are blanketed in snow and 30,000 wind turbines are sitting idle because there’s no wind.

    “Freezing Germans shivering in their lederhosen’s are desperate for coal fired power to heat up their wurst and sauerkraut.”

    Now that winter is coming (contrary to the environmentalists’ ludicrous predictions that we’d never see snow again), it turns out that green energy is really blue energy – for that’s the color people turn when they’re freezing to death. In summer, it will be red energy, as people bake thanks to Biden’s energy policies making air conditioning prohibitively expensive for all but the well-to-do.

    The history of the world, as much as anything, has been the history of people finding energy sources that allow them to produce food, trade, and avoid freezing or boiling to death. In the 21st Century, we finally have abundant supplies of such energy sources, and the leftists are insisting that the only way to “save” us is to return us to a premodern era of malnutrition, disease, darkness, and deadly cold and heat.
