April 13th – 2019 Presidential Politics – Trump Administration Day #814

In an effort to keep the Daily Open Thread a little more open topic we are going to start a new daily thread for “Presidential Politics”. Please use this thread to post anything relating to the Donald Trump Administration and Presidency.


This thread will refresh daily and appear above the Open Discussion Thread.

    Took at this tweet, Big Electric car meeting w/ POTUS coming in 2 weeks.

      Oops Look, ;-), however, there is a nexus and lexus of “Gen-4” Nuclear Power coming, and a push towards the US having is own reliable lithium supply chain by 2022. We are talking long term a constant gen source ( not wind or solar ) that could power electric car revolution. More to come on this later…

        The whole electric vehicle (EV) thing is a sick joke like global warming! The reality of EVs is only the wealthy can afford the carrying cost of maintaining an EV and a regular vehicle at the same time.

        For the rich owning an EV is just a status symbol to appease their environmental guilt while assuring the pollution created to produce the electricity to charge their EV’s battery is produced in someone else’s backyard.

        On top of this, the rich are using socialism to force the poor to pay the rich big EV rebates because EVs do not make common sense!

        The whole idea of EVs is a very inefficient use of our limited energy supplies. When one takes the into account the total losses the electrical system incurrs from the initial production of electricity, line delivery, charging an EV’s battery, and the EV’s motion, the resultant total energy losses are absolutely staggering! EVs are incredibly inefficient!

        Basic physics says whenever one transforms energy from one form to another huge losses occur. So no matter the initial source that is used to create electricity (uranium, coal, natural gas, etc. even hydro) one is converting energy from one state to another!

        So possible energy conversions to mass produce electricity are:
        water – potential energy to kenetic energy to mechanical to electrical energy – 3 major convs
        coal, natural gas, oil, – chemical energy to heat water to steam (gas) to mechanical to electrical energy – 3 major convs
        uranium – radiation to heat water to steam to mechanical to electrical energy – 3 major convs

        After primary electricity losses then there are line delivery losses:
        power station voltage step up transformation losses – relatively minor conv
        power line resistance losses – not so minor conv
        power line voltage step down losses – relatively minor conv

        Losses charging EV at home charging station:
        110/220VAC voltage step down losses – relatively minor conv
        battery charger’s internal power circuit’s VAC to VDC losses – relatively minor conv

        Losses charging Electric Vehicle’s battery:
        VDC electricity used to reverse battery’s chemical state – major conv

        Driving EV losses:
        battery converts chemical to electricity – major conv
        car power circuit losses – accelerating/braking – Regen kenetic mechanical energy – minor conv
        VAC converted to VDC to charge battery to reverse chemical reaction – major conv
        wheel motor converts electricity to kenetic mechanical energy – major conv
        wheels/gears? turn tires to move EV – friction, air resistance, gravity – minor conv

        I am sure I have missed a few steps here or there and haven’t included heat losses but as you can see above there are one hell of a lot of energy conversions required to power an EV!

        Compare an electric vehicle’s energy conversions (7 major convs + 7 minor convs) to an internal combustion engine’s just 2 energy conversions, liquid to gas to mechanical! I would be surprised if gas cars are even 50% energy efficient! But electric vehicles could be easily be well below 25% and even 15%!

        I haven’t reasearched the energy conversation efficiency’s of chemical to electrical nor mechanical to electrical but my rough rule of thumb is 50% loss give or take 10% – 20%.

        (I have tried to layout the EV energy map so anyone with just high school basic science can roughly follow.)

        That is why we drive gas powered cars because they make more efficient use of the available energy we have!

        Our ancestors were not totally stupid! They had to abide by the same energy laws as we seem to now want to politically and financially suspend!

          In my home town in rural GA saw apple map cars up and the roads a whole fleet. Apple as liberal and gloabal warming and not one was electric.

          EV cars are the future, technically speaking. Combustion engines go way of the horse, by inertia. The governments ARE pushing it, but it is not stoppable anyway. Prepare for it. The have small working models of EV planes.

      I wouldn’t buy cobalt based on those indicators/plots. Could crash, just as easily as jump up.

      Based on other indicators that I developed, I’d say a crash in the next few months is more likely.

    A question for your Saturday evening –
    Remember James Comey’s recent reaction to AG Barr’s use of the word “spying?”

    “With respect to Barr’s comments, I really don’t know what he’s talking about when he talks about spying on the campaign,” Comey said. “It’s very concerning because the FBI, the Department of Justice conduct court-ordered electronic surveillance. I have never thought of that as spying.”

    What did Comey conspicuously not mention?
    Plants. Meaning people. The people inserted in the Trump Campaign as plants, i.e. spies.

    Why would Comey mention only electronic surveillance, and not the human spies?
    B/c those spies were all John Brennan CIA plants/spies

    These people must really think we are stupid.. Comey always gives himself away with his words. Always. Listen to Comey, one will hear the truth by what Comey says, or doesn’t say. Yes, Comey is really really stupid.
    “No reasonable prosecutor…” Loretta Lynch was being unreasonable. Works every time with Comey.

    Did Comey even know of Brennan’s CIA plants?

      Spot on !!!
      In the recent filing re the Declas of his memos there is an interesting sentence.

      It notes that at least one memo contains the actual NAME and CODE NAME for a Confidential Human Source – AKA A SPY !!

    “Judges have decided that they are unaccountable masters of a servile population not the inferior of the three branches of government (if you think I’m kidding, read the sad history of Missouri vs Jenkins), the only branch of the government that the Founders delegated to the Executive and the Congress to select and remove. The Judiciary is in Article 3 to the Constitution for a reason, not because the Founders were dyslexic or innumerate.
    The idea that the judiciary should be some kind of a spoils system doled out, not on merit, but on race, ethnicity, sexual perversion, or any other factor someone dreams up is just bizarre. How, exactly, does having a judge raised on food stamps improve the quality of justice for everyone? Or is xe only hear cases from food stamp recipients? In the two years Donald Trump has been president, his administration has been subject to a concentrated form of lawfare where hostile judges don’t rule on the law, they rule on their political beliefs and what they think is the correct policy. Look at the history of the so-called “travel ban” if you want examples of this partisan guerrilla war being carried out against the administration. Or the absurd notion that a mere memorandum written by an Obama cabinet official is the law of the land (that would be DACA).”

    Why the increase in mass shootings?

    Here’s a theory:

    And Democrats are desperate for gun control. I’ve never seen them so rabid.
