Bloomberg Sets Goal To End Sale Of Gas-Fueled Vehicles By 2035

Published

on

The one thing we can all count on every presidential election cycle is that politicians of all stripes will come forward and make absurd promises that tickle the ears of voters, but are more than likely impossible to actually keep.

Then again, keeping promises isn’t something most politicians, especially those on the left, are interested in at all. It’s simply a means to grab power, and unfortunately, many voters are naive enough to fall for it.

A great example of this “pie in the sky” kind of strategy for winning votes comes to us in the form of Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg who has now promised to end the sale of gas-fueled vehicles by the year 2035, a move geared toward appealing to the climate change fanatics.

Bloomberg’s proposal released Friday targets the transportation sector, the largest source of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, as part of his overall goal of cutting emissions economy-wide 50% by 2030 in order to fully decarbonize before midcentury.

Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, is trying to distinguish himself in the Democratic field by promoting his philanthropic success working with environmental groups to shut down more than half the nation’s coal plants.

“Mike is unique in his track record committing to this issue,” a senior adviser to the Bloomberg campaign told reporters on a press call.

Bloomberg has made a pledge to see to it that the construction of natural gas plants are halted and wants to see 80 percent clean electricity by 2028. Lofty goals, right?

He also released a plan this week that details how he wants all new buildings to be zero-carbon by the year 2025 and have old ones retrofitted so that natural gas appliances will be completely phased out through federal standards and incentives.

As of now, electric vehicles only represent about two percent of all vehicle sales, though the price of such cars is dropping thanks to cheaper batteries.

Pete Buttigieg Believes In Less Government But Only About One Issue [Opinion]

Something a lot of Americans are passionate about…

Published

The View‘s Meghan McCain recently sought a clearer answer from Mayor Pete Buttigieg about his position on late-term abortion. She asked him where he drew the line and whether his position included a baby actually being born: Buttigieg: “We live in a country where it is extremely important that no one person should have to be subject to some other person’s interpretation of their own religion.” I wondered whether Mayor Pete thought religious freedom equally applied to say, Jack Phillips’ right not to be forced to create a custom cake for a gay wedding. Sure enough I found a piece in the Washington Free Beacon, entitled, “Mayor Pete Will Make you Bake the Cake.” McCain pressed again, and the Mayor of South Bend answered with rhetoric that sounded like a limited government conservative: Buttigieg: “My point is that it shouldn’t be up to the government official to draw the line. It should be up the woman who is confronted with that choice.” McCain: “So if a woman wanted to invoke infanticide after a baby is born, you’d be comfortable with that?” Buttigieg: “… I don’t know what to tell them morally about what they should do. I just know that I trust that her decision isn’t going to be any better, medically or morally . . . because the government is telling her to do it a certain way.” He gave an almost identical answer in a televised Town Hall with Chris Wallace. Candidate Buttigieg who is ordinarily so comfortable sermonizing to his Leftist flock couldn’t bring himself to say that it is immoral to kill a baby after it’s born. I’ve always found it perplexing that the Left’s strong support for Obamacare never included any of this faux passion for freedom and restraint of government when it comes to…

Bloomberg: ‘Black & Latino Males’ Don’t ‘Know How to Behave In the Workplace’ (Video)

This could be the video to end his campaign…

If Michael Bloomberg was running for president as a Republican, the mainstream media would literally force him to drop from the race after several cringeworthy videos resurfaced. For instance, just the other day the former mayor of New York City said elderly patients should be denied care past a certain age. He was then busted for completely mocking farmers, basically calling them rubes by saying he could personally “teach anyone” how to farm. He also allegedly told an employee to “kill” her baby. But this 2011 clip below may just be the one that ends “Mini Mike’s” 2020 hopes. From Fox News: While promoting a $127 million, three-year initiative to help minorities in the workplace in 2011, then-New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg declared that there’s “this enormous cohort of black and Latino males” who “don’t know how to behave in the workplace” and “don’t have any prospects.” […] Speaking to PBS in the 2011 interview, Bloomberg noted that he had donated $30 million from his foundation to Open Society Foundations, the network established by liberal billionaire financier Goerge Soros, toward the new plan to enhance employment among minorities.
