Climate Change Conference Will Look to Extort Cash From Rich Countries to Pay for Weather Events in Poor Countries – If you’re a con man, a grifter, or just a run-of-the-mill crook, you’ve got to be in awe of the hustlers, the chiselers, and the Flim-Flam men running the climate change sting. It’s a truly epic con considering the billions of dollars that are going to change hands from “rich” to poor countries.

The “tale” in this case is the contention of poor countries — or, more accurately, the NGOs, lawyers, corrupt leaders of third world hell-holes, and others who will clean up if the con works — that weather events like hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, drought, and anything else that can be shoehorned into the definition are the result of “climate change” and therefore those nations most responsible for causing the climate to change should pay. – READ MORE

“I’m Selling My Blood To Eat, I Have No Choice”: Biden Inflation Crushes Americans – Gas, groceries, electricity, and rent — the price of everything has soared to four-decade highs under the Biden administration. Household finances are under severe pressure as wage growth fails to outpace inflation for 18 months, leading many folks to find a second job. Even holding two jobs isn’t enough to sustain the cost-of-living crisis, as some are finding the nearest plasma clinic to donate blood to earn extra cash.

Cashe Lewis, 31, of Denver, Colorado, works multiple jobs and is trying to find a third job due to rising shelter inflation. She told The Guardian she works six days a week, sometimes more than 16 hours per day, just to pay the bills. – READ MORE

“People Are Fed Up”: Soaring Electricity Bills Become New Pain Point For Biden –Utility companies are increasing electricity prices for American households ahead of the heating season.

Wells are running dry in drought-weary Southwest as foreign-owned farms guzzle water to feed cattle overseas – Workers with the water district in Wenden, Arizona, saw something remarkable last year as they slowly lowered a camera into the drought-stricken town’s well: The water was moving.
