Unchallenging Challenge

President Donald J. TrumpYesterday, President Trump announced that he plans to re-examine federal requirements that regulate the fuel efficiency of new cars and trucks. The Lamestream Enemedia instantly characterized it as the President’s moving forcefully against Obama-era environmental rules – because, of course, hysteria is their sole stock and trade and they know that the Warmists will go even further insane if properly goaded.

Vastly unsurprisingly, the truth of the matter is different than the MSM’s spin upon it. President Trump’s decision to re-evaluate Obama’s Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) emissions targets is a rather unchallenging challenge to the supposed centerpiece of Obama’s strategy to combat global warming. While it’s true that Obama’s EPA had promulgated regulations for cars and trucks that required auto manufacturers to reach a fleet-wide average of 54.5 mpg by 2025, it is also true that this rule was supposed to be reviewed in 2018 – but, in January – just seven days before Obama left office, the boy decided to cancel the review process. All that President Trump has promised to do is to reinstate the original, promised review of the CAFE standards that Obama imposed in 2012.

So really, like almost everything President Trump and his new administration has done so far, this is neither reason for Liberals and Progressives to scream, nor cause for Right Wing pundits and talking heads to crow and gloat.

Detroit Job Center
Oh Look! A Detroit Jobs Center

Yeah, Black self rule is working out so well for Detroit, isn’t it? I suppose it shouldn’t be surprising that Detroit, once a major center of American industry, now looks like any random urban center in Post-Colonial Africa.

Where’s He From?

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and sometimes it is, but without provenance the value is degraded.

Obama Supporter
Where’s He From?

So I have to wonder where this Obama supporter is from. Nairobi? Kigali? Khartoum? South Side Chicago? Detroit? Oakland?

It’s just an idle curiosity on my part though, as it doesn’t make any real difference. Irrespective of where he’s from, he’ll support Obama and the Democrats and send money to the campaigns of whoever his tribal elders tell him to support. 😉
