Federal Judge Rules ObamaCare Unconstitutional

Quoting The Wall Street Journal:
“Roger Vinson, a federal judge in Pensacola, Fla, has ruled that the individual mandate portion of the federal health care law, passed in March of last year, is unconstitutional…

In contrast with the Virginia ruling from last year, Judge Vinson found that the entire health care law must be struck down; that the so-called ‘individual mandate’ is not ‘severable.’ ”

Obama's SOTU Speech Translated

Dim speak can take a while to translate.
Finally, we have Obama’s SOTU speech translated.

Click the image to enlarge it:
Click the image to enlarge it
So-called “Green Energy” is the biggest criminal enterprise the world has EVER SEEN! Obama speaks in terms of “investments” in “Green Energy”. In reality, all these government subsidies do NOTHING but subsidize FAILURE! These subsidies ENSURE that we will NEVER develop ANY next generation energy sources capable of delivering REAL results in the REAL world. The Ethanol Debacle is a perfect example.

Obama Climate Adviser Browner to Step Down

Last week, somebody from the EPA arrived at my blog by Googling the phrase “EPA tyranny”. They initially landed on this page and continued on to this page (exposing the overtly Socialist Carol Browner). I’m wondering if the administrators of the EPA were as disgusted with Carol Browner as I was. I would like to think my blog might have had something to do with the following story -- who knows.
Quoting Fox News:
“White House energy and climate adviser Carol Browner plans to step down, officials confirmed to Fox News, marking the latest change-up at the highest levels of the Obama administration.”

Good riddance!
It’s great to see Browner gone. But, the question remains as to whether we still have purely political radicals running the EPA. I’m pretty sure we do. This battle is far from over! But, Anthony Watts noticed that Obama avoided any climate related discussion in his SOTU speech. Has Obama begun to understand that the public is NOT buying what the climate charlatans are selling? I doubt it. But, at least he’s smart enough to avoid the subject (and dumb enough to continue to suggest that government should continue to subsidize failure, fraud and massive corruption in the so-called “clean energy” scams). That battle is also far from over.

SOTU Speech - FuggetAboutIt!

How do you know when Barack Hussein Obama is lying?

His lips are moving.

And, that is exactly why I did not watch his SOTU speech and never will.

Whatever Obama said was what he thought most people wanted to hear. I did hear that he used the word “investment” many times. That, of course, is Dim speak for EVEN MORE wasteful spending (and fraud and theft and destruction and corruption).

How has THAT worked so far?

The ONLY speech I want to hear from Obama is his concession speech admitting that he lost the 2012 election. After that, I NEVER want to hear from him EVER again!

Chinese Pianist Plays Propaganda Tune at White House

“Lang Lang the pianist says he chose it. Chairman Hu Jintao recognized it as soon as he heard it. Patriotic Chinese Internet users were delighted as soon as they saw the videos online. Early morning TV viewers in China knew it would be played an hour or two beforehand. At the White House State dinner on Jan. 19, about six minutes into his set, Lang Lang began tapping out a famous anti-American propaganda melody from the Korean War: the theme song to the movie ‘Battle on Shangganling Mountain.’

The movie and the tune are widely known among Chinese, and the song has been a leading piece of anti-American propaganda by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) for decades.”

Local Journalist Displays Ethanol Ignorance

Quoting local “journalist” Tom Ross
(emphasis mine):
“Routt County’s uber guru of alternative fuels vehicles, Fred Robinson, reports from Henderson Park that he has come up with a mix of gasoline and E85 ethanol he said his lawn mowers run well on, thus reducing his carbon footprint every time he does yard chores.”
Click the image & read the rest:
Click the image & read the rest

I expect so-called “journalists” to be ignorant. But, I expect them to at least be well versed in the reporting done by their peers. It would appear that Mr. Ross didn’t do his homework.

Newsweek reports that:
“When you tote up the carbon emissions caused by clearing land to grow corn, fertilizing it and transporting it, corn ethanol leaves twice the carbon footprint as gasoline.”
Time magazine admits:
“the biofuel boom is doing exactly the opposite of what its proponents intended”
Hell, even Al Gore has admitted he only backed Ethanol for the bribes it could bring him and that Ethanol is a giant failure which wasted immeasurable amounts of tax payer money. Both the Libertarians at and the Green fanatics at Friends of the Earth agree it is time to end the utterly wasteful Ethanol subsidies.

Click here for more on the Ethanol Debacle.

Mr. Ross blathers on about Peak Oil and gives a nod to the miserably dishonest T. Boone Pickens. IMO, Pickens (a man I have NO respect for) is simply looking to make his NEXT billion by sticking his hands into the wallets of American taxpayers. Pickens and all the rest of the “Peak Oil” charlatans can ONLY arrive at their hysteria mongering conclusions by ignoring the FACT that the USA has hydrocarbon resources probably amounting to at LEAST 6 to 7 times the proven reserves of Saudi Arabia!

Yes, the world is probably headed back to $100 per barrel of oil. The reason for that is simply because our moronic “Green” politicians will not ALLOW us to develop our own damn resources! We need to get government the HELL out of the way and let market forces work to develop our hydrocarbon resources as well as take us into the next era of power generation. Right now, government mandates and subsidies are nothing more than a MASSIVE criminal enterprise which ONLY serves to subsidize utterly counterproductive FAILURE and CORRUPTION!

Come on Tom! Do your freaking home work! I’m sick and tired of doing it FOR YOU!

Pop Music Meets Pop Psychology via Pop TV

Apropos of nothing…

There is a book titled:

The Dims are sure to ban the book soon -- too incendiary.
The book was featured tonight a TV show titled Fringe.

Washington D.C. residents think they are the smartest

According to Travel & Leisure magazine, residents of Washington D.C. think they are more intelligent that anybody else in the entire country. This, of course, ONLY proves that they are the most arrogant people in the country.

I can think of a great deal more descriptors which FAR more accurately describe the useless bureaucrats living and “working” in the nation’s capital -- most stupid, most ignorant, most evil, most destructive, most dishonest, most out of touch with reality, most overpaid, least productive, least educated (by any sensible definition of “educated”).

Quoting William A. Jacobson,

“In the vile attempt to tie Palin to the Tucson shooting we have witnessed the test run for how the left-wing blogosphere will target Republican candidates and propel false narratives into the mainstream media, and how the mainstream media will take those narratives and run with them.

Remember, Obama promised to bankrupt the coal industry

Remember, candidate Obama promised to bankrupt the coal industry with his extremist environmental agenda. It sure looks to me like he intends to keep that promise.

Quoting Fox Business News:
“President Obama says he wants to improve his relationship with businesses to create jobs. But his actions tell a different story.

Just ask the folks at Arch Coal (ACI). They were well into a huge new mining project in West Virginia, for which they had all the correct environmental permits, and which was going to add $250 million and 250 jobs to the economy. But President Obama's EPA just shut them down.”

Price of oil - Here we go again

We may see the price of oil spike sometime during the current quarter. What follows is a quantification of how I arrived at that conclusion and how the entire world can get off of that boom/bust cycle and the associated economic implications.

In a previous post, I quantified the fact that:

A) The soaring price of oil in 2008 was a simple matter of world demand exceeding world supply.

B) ANWR alone (a tiny, but still very important fraction of our VAST domestic hydrocarbon resources) could have ENTIRELY prevented that price spike on a global level.

C) The global recession curtailed world demand, brought global supply back in balance with global demand and caused the price of oil to plummet.

With most of the world economies currently in recovery (to varying degrees), global demand has now risen above the previous record from Q4 of 2007. Global supply has also risen above the previous records from Q1 of 2008. However, because Obama and his Dims continue to prevent the USA from developing our VAST hydrocarbon resources, global demand is once again exceeding global supply and is threatening to send the global economy back into recession. The quantitative facts are documented below:

On 11/15/2010, I produced this chart documenting that
global demand once again exceeded global supply.

what had already been released in their spreadsheet:

For a variety of reasons, the price per barrel has risen from
recent lows and is roughly back in line with long term trends.

My previous analysis concluded that there was about
a 2 quarter lag between a supply/demand imbalance
and a steeply rising price per barrel of oil.

Sources cited within a previous post on my blog.

If the past repeats itself, we should see the price of oil soar in the very near future (sometime this quarter). Gasoline prices will not be far behind.

If you don’t like these economic roller coaster rides, I suggest you vote for somebody who will allow the USA to develop our vast hydrocarbon resources!

SBVOR cited by The Village Voice

If the opinion page of The New York Times is best suited for lining a bird cage, what possible use could there be for The Village Voice? Suggestions?

I ask because your humble correspondent was recently cited in an article quite typical of the drivel published by that rag.

Among the many bloggers cited by this pinhead, mine was perhaps the only citation for which a link was not provided. Why?

Finally! Somebody who benefits from ObamaCare!

Quoting the Associated Press
(via MSNBC, October 6, 2009) :
“Lured by easier money and shorter prison sentences, Mafia figures and other violent criminals are increasingly moving into fraud involving the government's Medicare health insurance program for the elderly…

A Medicare scammer could easily net at least $25,000 a day while risking a relatively modest 10 years in prison if convicted on a single count. A cocaine dealer could take weeks to make that amount while risking up to life in prison [or getting shot on the street].”

ObamaCare creates a far bigger pie to steal from and a far bigger bureaucracy to get lost in. Anybody who has EVER dealt with upper level federal bureaucrats KNOWS that there is not one single soul among them who gives two shits about saving money. To the contrary, EVERY upper level federal bureaucrat wants to spend as much money as possible -- that’s how they get an even BIGGER budget for the next year and an even bigger empire to lord over. So, in point of fact, the damn federal bureaucrats LOVE the mafia stealing from the taxpayers and they LOVE wasting taxpayer money any damn way they can.

Have you seen the list of Washington D.C. bureaucracies which received the so-called Obama “stimulus” money? Have you noticed the “results”? You like that? Well, you ain’t seen NOTHING yet! Just wait until Washington D.C. gets their hands on ObamaCare funds!

The Politically Motivated Tucson Psycho

Quoting Fox News:
“The co-founder of the Tucson Tea Party said he is worried about the threats he is receiving, including a remark by a shooting victim made to him at a televised town hall meeting.

Trent Humphries told The Associated Press on Sunday he was surprised when shooting victim James Eric Fuller took a picture of him and said ‘you're dead.’

The 63-year-old Fuller was arrested Saturday on disorderly conduct and threat charges and taken for a psychiatric exam.”
Click the image of Fuller
& read the rest:

Click the image of Fuller & read the rest

So, in Tucson, we have finally found a politically motivated individual who issued a very clear death threat and was judged by the police and the doctor with whom they consulted to be in need of an involuntary commitment for a psychiatric examination.

Was it Jared Lee Loughner? Nope. Any reasonable person has to conclude that Loughner was not lucid enough to formulate a coherent sentence, much less a coherent political ideology. But, unlike Loughner, Fuller’s motivation was CLEARLY political and CLEARLY Leftist -- just like the rest of the massive list of those who TRULY promote violent rhetoric.

Below, find the comments to which Fuller responded.
Were the TEA Partier’s comments provocative?
You decide:

Beginning mere hours (or less) after Loughner went on a killing spree -- with NO EVIDENCE WHAT-SO-EVER -- most of the Lame Stream Media began pointing their crooked, lying fingers at various elements of the TEA Party. They continue to do so to this day.

With Fuller, we have extremely clear evidence of a politically motivated death threat issued right in front of the celebrities of the Lame Stream Media. So, how do they “report” this event? They downplay the crime and pretend that the victim had no connection to the TEA Party.

In the final irony, a very strong case could be made to suggest that the bald faced lies of the Lame Stream Media provoked this utterly insane outburst from Mr. Fuller. Let’s hope the hideously irresponsible LSM lies do not result in innocent people actually being murdered.

Below, find just a very tiny fraction of the very most recent evidence:

Excerpt from “The Day the Earth Stood Still” (1951):

Expect the movie to soon be banned as too “incendiary”.

Another Dim Engaged in Violent Rhetoric

It appears as though Michelle Malkin can add the name J. Eric Fuller to her expansive documentation of Dims engaged in violent rhetoric (and more).

Two witnesses allege that Fuller threatened to kill Tucson Tea Party founder Trent Humphries in the middle of an event hosted by ABC News Anchor Christiane Amanpour.

The Tucson ABC news affiliate reports:
“A Pima County Sheriff's spokesman told KGUN9 News that the department has charged Fuller with one count of threats and intimidation, and said they plan to charge him with at least one count of disorderly conduct. Humphries [the target of the alleged death threat] told KGUN9 News that he does plan to press those charges.”
With ABC & Christiane Amapour involved, it should come as no surprise that this story goes from bad to worse.

Paul Krugman is a bald faced liar!

Quoting Lachlan Markay
at Newsbusters:
“I write to alert you to a fairly [actually, massively] egregious error in Paul Krugman's Sunday column, headlined ‘Climate of Hate’. Mr. Krugman insists that the political right - far more than their ideological counterparts on the left - are guilty of using ‘eliminationist’ rhetoric, which he defines as ‘suggestions that those on the other side of a debate must be removed from that debate by whatever means necessary.’

Mr. Krugman provides a single example of ‘eliminationist’ rhetoric from conservatives: a statement by Rep. Michele Bachmann that she wants her constituents ‘armed and dangerous.’

Mr. Krugman took those three words completely out of context, and in doing so distorted Ms. Bachmann's actual statement. The full quote reads: ‘I'm going to have materials for people when they leave. I want people armed and dangerous on this issue of the energy tax, because we need to fight back.’

Clearly, Ms. Bachmann was not stating her desire for a constituency that is literally ‘armed and dangerous.’ She used the phrase as a metaphor - she wanted her constituents ‘armed’ with information so that they would be ‘dangerous’ to cap and trade legislation and Democrats' energy agenda.”

Today, climate charlatans swear we will all be buried in snow unless big government comes to our rescue. They also swear they knew all along that global warming causes global cooling and massive amounts of snow and that all their past predictions are now coming true.

NOAA Alarmists vs. Peer Reviewed Science

Quoting the government employees at NOAA:
“According to NOAA scientists, 2010 tied with 2005 as the warmest year of the global surface temperature record, beginning in 1880.”
Quoting PhD Climatologist Dr. Roger Pielke Sr.
(emphasis mine):
“Our [peer reviewed] paper… has clearly documented an estimated warm bias of about 30% in the IPCC reported surface temperature trends. This bias also brings into question the claim that 11 of the 12 years in the period 1995 to 2006 were the warmest on record. Moreover, despite the claim in the IPCC (2007) report, the tropospheric and surface temperature trends have not NOT reconciled...

The lack of news coverage on this documented bias which has appeared in the peer reviewed literature on the Klotzbach et al (2009) paper is another clear example of the failure of most of the journalism community to cover news that conflicts with the IPCC (2007) perspective.”
The cited peer reviewed science is:
Klotzbach, P.J., R.A. Pielke Sr., R.A. Pielke Jr., J.R. Christy, and R.T. McNider, 2009: An alternative explanation for differential temperature trends at the surface and in the lower troposphere.

The Winter of the Alarmist Discontent

Hat Tip to The SPPI Blog.
Click the image to enlarge it:

Click the image to enlarge it

With England in the midst of what could be their coldest winter in 1,000 years, the alarmists at the British Met Office are having a hard time selling their Global Warming alarm. But, that is far from the only place where Gaia seems to be openly mocking the hysteria mongers.

Yes, yes, I know…
It’s only “weather” (unless, of course, it makes for useful propaganda).

So, the alarmists will point to a single hot spell in a single Russian summer as irrefutable evidence of catastrophic man made global warming. But, what will they make of 23 sequential years of USA winters failing to cooperate with their propaganda? The silence is deafening!

Alarmists -- including those at the Met Office -- dishonestly focus attention on the last three decades. They know as well as I do that the AMO (Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation) has been the primary driver of the last three decades. They also know the AMO has plateaued and that the AMO driven warming is OVER. Additionally, they know -- as this chart from this post documents -- that we need only look back another 5 decades to utterly destroy their purely political propaganda.

It seems as though “climate” -- according to the hysteria mongers -- is anything useful in promoting their purely political propaganda.

Tucson shooter did NOT listen to talk radio!

First we have this insight into Loughner:

To which Rush Limbaugh reacts:

I want to suggest that Loughner’s deranged mind was not “influenced” by much of anything. It’s more like various things (like paper currency) became deranged, paranoid and distorted obsessions inside his twisted mind.

And now, for the main thrust…
With NO EVIDENCE WHAT-SO-EVER, Dims throughout the Lame Stream Media accuse virtually every Conservative in the entire country of being complicit in mass murder and these pinheads do not understand why we are freaking FURIOUS over that false accusation?

If this poll is not a clear indication of the declining influence of the Lame Stream Media, I don’t know what is.

Please! Tell me again who thinks it is a good idea to utterly waste $45 TRILLION in order to pretend we can micromanage climate change. Kyoto has already PROVEN that we can waste all the money we want and we will not even come CLOSE to changing the global temperature in any way which could even be measured.

Furthermore, history tells us that the estimate of $45 TRILLION would balloon into at LEAST a full order of magnitude above that figure.

In Defense of Anger

Dims -- notably, a particularly despicable Democratic sheriff -- are suggesting that talk radio, etc. is responsible for the Tucson tragedy because they have made people angry with the government.

First, let me say that if you’re not angry with the government -- especially the massively destructive and grossly irresponsible behavior of the federal government -- you are simply not paying attention.

There is NOTHING WRONG with being angry with the government -- to the contrary, it is grossly irresponsible NOT to be angry!

Is that -- in any way -- ANY excuse to resort to violence? NOT ON YOUR LIFE!

The simple fact is that EVERY leader in any way associated with the TEA Party has very explicitly denounced violence. The simple fact is that the accused shooter had NO ideological connection in ANY way to ANY aspect of the TEA Party, the Conservative movement or ANYBODY to the Right of Nancy Pelosi.

Dims are cynically attempting to exploit this tragedy in the most heinous manners imaginable. The MOST heinous exploitation is their shameless attempt to suggest that we, the people, should not be angry with our government. We are MAD AS HELL, we SHOULD BE and we WILL NOT BACK DOWN in the face of shameless and disgusting intimidation tactics from the tyrannical Dims.

Hillary Clinton jumps the biggest shark yet

Quoting Jake Tapper
at ABC News:
“In Abu Dhabi today, at a town hall meeting at Abu Dhabi's Zayed University for a taped show on MBC television called ‘Sweet Talk,’ Secretary of State Hillary Clinton labeled the Tucson shooter an ‘extremist.’…

The label ‘extremist’ in that context suggests a political motivation.”

Many government officials and Lame Stream Media “reporters” have attempted to link Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and anybody who ever even contemplated any support for the TEA Party to the Tucson tragedy. But, unlike the nuttiest of the “Progressive” fringe, most if not all of these more prominent sorts have at least had the common sense not to directly ascribe a political motive to the shooter. They mostly implied some sort of magical osmosis was to blame. Even the nutty nonsense which Paul Krugman wrote failed to jump this particular shark -- not so Hillary Clinton.

Earth to Hillary:

CBS reports Loughner was angry with Giffords for answering in Spanish when he asked her:
“How do you know words mean anything?”

Mother Jones reports Loughner was angry with Giffords for declining to answer when he asked her:
“What is government if words have no meaning?”

As far as I can tell, the only brand of “extremist” who asks those sorts of questions of his congressional representative is the extremely CRAZY sort.

Clearly, among those whom we expect to behave somewhat responsibly (at least on occasions such as this), Hillary has proven herself the least responsible of all.

High Capacity Lies

Quoting Politico
(on page 2 of this article):
“ ‘The ability to buy a weapon that fires hundreds of bullets in less than a minute’ is a problem, said [Illinois Rep. Mike] Quigley. ‘He [Jared Loughner] had an additional magazine capability. That’s not what a hunter needs. That’s not what someone needs to defend their home. That’s what you use to hunt people.’ ”
1) Loughner had a 30 round clip. HOW does that equate to “hundreds”?

2) Making it illegal to own a high capacity clip will NEVER prevent criminals from owning high capacity clips!

3) Obviously, Quigley has never lived in a gang infested neighborhood. Obviously, Quigley has never assisted the local police in attempting to bring justice to these extremely violent gang bangers. Anybody who does so lives in daily fear that 20 or more gang members will kick in their door and kill them. Anybody in that situation would be WELL ADVISED to own multiple VERY high capacity clips for the sake of defending their home.

And, those good Samaritans ought NOT sacrifice their right to choose how best to defend themselves for the sake of some idiotic feel good tyranny which has been proven time and time again to be not merely unproductive, but downright counter-productive.

Most Dims Don't Blame Political Tone for Tucson Shooting

Quoting Philip Klein at The American Spectator
(commenting on a CBS Poll):
“When even a plurality of Democrats don't think harsh rhetoric had anything to do with the shooting, it's clear that liberals' desperate attempts to pin this attack on conservatives have been failing. This is largely a result of the fact that a) there has been no evidence to support such a link and b) conservatives did a good job pushing back against the left-wing effort to exploit this tragedy.”

What is shocking to me is that ANYBODY fell for this latest example of so-called “Progressives” shamelessly exploiting a senseless tragedy in a cynical attempt at yet another power grab.

But, this attempted power grab is far from over. Dims are introducing new (utterly counterproductive) gun control legislation. Dims are also taking direct aim (pun intended) at the First Amendment -- offering legislation specifically targeting (pun intended) Sarah Palin’s utterly innocuous computer graphic.

These two bills are just the tip of the iceberg. Dims are introducing all sorts of crazy crap legislation as a direct response to something which -- as Michael Reagan relates -- even the Secret Services knows cannot be prevented!

Obama's Violent Gun Rhetoric

Quoting Barack Obama
(from 2008):
“If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun”
Click the image & read the rest:
Click the image & read the rest

In a breath-taking display of brazen dishonesty and callous hypocrisy, Dims are trying to blame the Tucson tragedy on Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and anybody who ever came even remotely close to sympathizing with the TEA Party. At least one nut job went so far as to suggest:
“Federal troops should start rounding up tea party members”
To his credit, Obama has not yet participated in that lunacy. But, his base is pressuring him to join in. There are countless reasons why doing so would be innappropriate. As the above quote demonstrates, it would also be political suicide.

Most Insane 'Progressive' Tweet Yet?

Is this the most insane Tucson Tragedy tweet yet?
Click the image & examine LOTS more “Progressive” insanity:

Click the image & examine LOTS more ‘Progressive’ insanity
Click here to see the original tweet.
Bear in mind, the author can delete it at any time.
As of 1/10/11 at 9:19PM MST, it has not been deleted.

Honestly, I selected the above tweet randomly from the giant assortment of “Progressive” insanity available by clicking the image. So, the odds are very good that many “Progressive” nut jobs offered tweets and other commentary even more insane than that one.

More on the 'Sarah is to blame' hypocritical nonsense

Updated at 6:10PM MST

First, we have an exclusive from the Far Left Mother Jones wherein it is alleged that Loughner was angry with Giffords because she declined to answer the following question he posed to her:
“What is government if words have no meaning?”
I’m pretty sure that Palin was not the inspiration for that question.

Second, The Washington Post reports:
“Loughner… did not vote in November…

In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, liberals sought to paint Loughner as an anti-government, tea party conservative. Conservatives retorted that Loughner lacked anything close to a coherent political philosophy -- a case strengthened by subsequent glimpses into his personal life that suggests someone struggling with mental illness.”
Third, we have an entry from Michelle Malkin further exposing the brazen hypocrisy of the Left on the subject of violent rhetoric.

So-called “Progressives” are very well known for their phenomenal capacity to hypocritically jump the shark. But, this one is so incredibly absurd that it has ignited a virtual civil war internally within their own ranks.

Sarah Palin & The Brazen Hypocrisy of the Left

Lefties are hypocrites? REALLY?

Click here and see that even a Leftist Feminist (who clearly does not like either the TEA Party or the GOP) can see that one.

Read that entire link. Obviously, she and I have diametrically opposed world views. But, I actually agree with the large majority of what she says in this post.

Oh, and, don’t forget…
The computer generated symbol Palin used on her graphic -- the one the Leftist Feminist noted was included in her “Java map-building program” -- has, ever since 1993, been known as a “Position Indicator” (as opposed to the “Bullseye” used in the Democrat map which she also presents).

No hypocrisy in Leftie Land! Say that three times while clicking the heels of your ruby slippers together and you too may land in the “Progressive” utopia fantasy world of sunshine, lollipops, unicorns and dreams that brazen hypocrisy is not the norm for Lefties.

Sudden acceleration (when drivers floor the gas pedal)

Quoting The Wall Street Journal
(from last August):
“Experts at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration examined 58 vehicles involved in sudden-acceleration reports and found data in 35 of them showed the brakes weren't applied at the time of the crash. Data from nine other vehicles showed the brakes were used only in the last moment before impact…

people familiar with the investigation have said the findings point to pedal misapplication—mistakenly hitting the gas instead of the brakes—as a likely cause.”

Click the image & read the rest

Back when I took a light hearted look at the “sudden acceleration media hysteria”, I had a pretty good idea that this would be the finding. But, if you think anything as inconsequential as objective facts will deter the utterly corrupt Dim politicians or the predatory lawyers who fund them, think again.

Damn the predatory trial lawyers and every Dim politician funded by them!
