Lack of Self-Awareness Story of the Year! – This award must go to elephantine former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, who said this week that he is “leaving the door open” for a presidential run in 2024:

From the story at Newsmax:
Former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he isn’t ruling out making another run for president in 2024.
“I’ll make my own decision without regard to anybody else who’s running. Whether it’s the president or anybody else,” Christie told The Daily Caller.
Christie ran unsuccessfully for the Republican presidential nomination in 2016, but later endorsed Donald Trump.
On Monday, Christie also spoke of 2024 during an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt. He was asked if he would rule out a run for the White House if Trump decided to run.
“I would not. No,” Christie said. “I would not rule it out, Hugh.”
Seriously, I am laughing out loud here.
Christie, who ran a disastrously-failed presidential campaign in 2016, has gone out of his way to disassociate himself from the Trump base of support over the past year. The problem there is that he apparently doesn’t understand that Trump’s support base makes up probably over 80% of the base of support for the entire Republican Party.
So, unless he’s planning on running as a Democrat or the latest sacrificial lamb put up by the Libertarian Party, any real presidential ambitions Christie still had after 2016 ran aground like a beached whale long ago, but he’s apparently too clueless to realize it.
Want to tame the social media giants? Let Poland show you how. – Twitter, Facebook and Google all played huge roles in the past two elections, helping the mainstream media brainwash millions of Americans into voting for Democrats, mainly through massive efforts to censor conservative thought and speech. The U.S. federal government is too paralyzed and – let’s be honest here – paid off by the social media giants to do anything about it, but not the government in Poland, which recently served as a role model of any free nation by taking dramatic action to stop the censorship.
From a story at Newsbusters:
Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro of Poland “announced a legal initiative on Thursday [Dec. 10] aimed at enabling internet users to file complaints against the removal of online posts as well as the creation of a special court for freedom of speech,” according to Poland In.
“Under its provisions, social media services will not be allowed to remove content or block accounts if the content on them does not break Polish law. In the event of removal or blockage, a complaint can be sent to the platform, which will have 24 hours to consider it. Within 48 hours of the decision, the user will be able to file a petition to the court for the return of access. The court will consider complaints within seven days of receipt and the entire process is to be electronic,” Poland In reported.
Not only will users be able to sue Big Tech companies in some instances, but there will reportedly be consequences for Big Tech companies if they do not comply with Poland’s law. “If a special court rules in favour of the plaintiff and the internet service does not obey the ruling it can subject the internet service to a fine of up to PLN 8 million (EUR 1.8 million) imposed by the Office of Electronic Communications,” reported Poland In.
Congress is too utterly corrupt as an institution to ever be able to take decisive action such as this, so Americans who still value freedom of speech and thought supposedly guaranteed by the Constitution will have to devise other ways of dealing with the issue. Either that, or perhaps move to Poland.
All the ICU’s are overrun! Doctors and nurses don’t have time to event think or take a coffee break due to all the COVID-19 patients! It’s a national emergencyyyyyyyy!!!!! It’s … huh? Oh, um, nevermind:

You could never make this crap up, folks.
Get ready for $5 gasoline and a doubling of your utility bills. – The corrupt news media won’t be honest with you about this, but China Joe Potato Head Biden is quickly assembling a team of advisors who are going to regulate every aspect of your daily lives and massively increase the cost of energy use over the next four years. They will justify it all using the dogma of the Global Church of Climate Change.
"President-elect Joe Biden is building a team of seasoned government professionals who can help him embark on an aggressive regulatory agenda…"
Biden's *BIG PLANS* include smashing the Trump economy & replicating the Obama recession. Who voted for this?https://t.co/UoPrTWMw2R

From a story at The Hill:
Biden has already drawn in experts with deep government and regulatory backgrounds to head some of his agencies. Many of those who will serve in his White House or broader administration have worked in multiple previous administrations.
They include Gina McCarthy, a former Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) administrator responsible for a number of Obama-era rules, who will serve as a domestic climate czar tapped to oversee the numerous departments that will play a hand in addressing Trump’s numerous environmental rollbacks.
There’s also Xavier Becerra, who as California’s attorney general led the fight against Trump’s rollbacks to ObamaCare and if confirmed will head the Department of Health and Human Services.
Michael Regan, Biden’s pick to helm the Environmental Protection Agency, has served as the top environmental regulator for the state of North Carolina for four years and also worked at EPA on its air quality program under Presidents Clinton and George W. Bush.
Democrats are pushing Biden to waste no time in beginning a regulatory process that can take years.
“The regulatory agenda is going to be critical — and that has to be an agenda that is aggressive and swift enough to meet the moment,” said Amit Narang, a regulatory policy advocate with Public Citizen, a left-leaning advocacy group.
“In the beginning that’s going to be mostly about dealing with the last-minute Trump actions and seeing how much of that can be blocked right up front at the beginning of the administration,” he said. “The rollbacks that have been on the books longer will take longer to undo, so time is going to be of the essence.
Here’s a key thing to understand about this coming massive push to further subsidize wind and solar: It serves Biden’s desire to make the U.S. increasingly dependent on and subservient to China. Wind and Solar rely heavily on the use of rare earth minerals that are mainly sourced from China. All those cute solar panels and most of the enormous windmills are manufactured in China. All those promises made by Democrats of millions of “green jobs” coming to America are abject BS – the vast majority of renewables-related jobs are in China and will remain there.
That’s what’s coming in a Biden/Harris administration, mainly because the entire Democrat Party – and many Republican members of congress – is a wholly-owned subsidiary of China.
Have a great day.
That is all.
