Si Se Puede! Biden Admin will Import Baby Formula from Mexico

Published

on

Did you ever think you’d live to see American parents relying on Mexico for their baby’s survival?

Back in May The Gateway Pundit reported that American parents were traveling to Tijuana to purchase baby formula.

The out-of-stock rate hit 70% in May nearly double the rate from April.

The country is still facing shortages of the critical food product.

This week, after several months of baby formula shortages the Biden regime announced they will start importing formula from Mexico.

It only took them six months to devise this simple plan. They are really that pathetic.

HotAir reported:

Today the Biden administration announced it is providing logistical support to import about 16 million 6-ounce baby formula bottles from Mexico. The project starts this weekend. It involves the Department of Health and Human Services expediting trucks that will drive about 1 million pounds of Gerber Good Start Gentle infant formula from a Nestle plant to U.S. retailers. This will nearly double the amount of formula imported to the U.S. to date.

The Biden administration announced Wednesday that it is providing logistical support to import the equivalent of about 16 million 8-ounce baby formula bottles from Mexico starting this weekend, as part of its efforts to ease nationwide supply shortages caused by the closure of the largest U.S. manufacturing plant. Cargo flights from Europe and Australia have flown baby formula into the U.S. Two new rounds of air shipments will begin this weekend.

The White House wants you to think this is wonderful news and proof that they are on this problem, working to get formula on store shelves. That narrative can only be believed by people who have not been paying attention to the Biden baby formula crisis at all. There were warning signals about potential shortages last fall.

Mississippi gas storage facility sending half a ton of methane into the atmosphere every hour

Published

on

The Petal Gas Storage facility is just one component of a vast oil and gas system owned by Boardwalk Pipelines that extends more than 13,000 miles.

A small gas storage facility in Petal, Mississippi, is making a big impact when it comes to methane emissions. According to Inside Climate News, the station owned by Gulf South Pipeline and its parent company, Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, sends half a ton of methane into the atmosphere every hour. Recent data for the facility marks Petal Gas Storage as the top emitter of its kind, pumping out three-and-a-half times more methane emissions than any other gas storage station in the U.S.—and that’s just self-reported emissions. As with any aspect of the oil and gas industry, there’s little transparency and accountability to be had for companies like Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, which operates across many Gulf states, its more than 13,000 mile-long pipelines extending from Texas to Ohio.

There’s also little enforcement. As Inside Climate News notes, the Environmental Protection Agency tends to take a relatively mild approach to handling emissions issues from facilities like Petal and hasn’t really fought back, despite Boardwalk Pipeline Partners’ utter inability to follow industry recommendations released some 16 years ago. All of the blame truly lies with Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, as 99% of leaks leading to super-emitting events came from operational error, namely issues with reciprocating compressors that use pistons to compress gas. A component in those compressors known as isolation valves were more often than not found to be faulty, allowing for vast tons of methane to leak out.

Four Members Of Congress Ask FTC to Investigate Google and Apple: Selling Information in New Abortion Age

Published

on

Three Senators and one House Democrat have the foresight to anticipate an increased value and danger of information, especially to law enforcement or the type that would like to assist law enforcement, in a post-abortion-rights age.

According to Ars Technica, Sens. Ron Wyden, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, and Rep. Sara Jacobs wrote:

Four Democratic US senators today asked the Federal Trade Commission to “investigate Apple and Google for engaging in unfair and deceptive practices by enabling the collection and sale of hundreds of millions of mobile phone users’ personal data.”

The letter cited the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade, saying that women “seeking abortions and other reproductive healthcare will become particularly vulnerable to privacy harms, including through the collection and sharing of their location data.”

“Data brokers are already selling, licensing, and sharing the location information of people that visit abortion providers to anyone with a credit card. Prosecutors in states where abortion becomes illegal will soon be able to obtain warrants for location information about anyone who has visited an abortion provider.”

The seriousness is warranted because the full ramification of the Dodds ruling has yet to be absorbed, never mind understood. Alito’s opinion emphasized that no part of the ruling impacted the criminalization of gay sex, nor gay marriage because abortion involved “another life.”

That word, recognizing a fetus as “a life,” as a matter of law, could be read as an open door to some states to vastly expand their investigative power over those women who may travel to seek an abortion, may seek medications within a state in which the medications are outlawed, or even attempt to obtain an abortion in a state where they are outlawed so that the state can prosecute the women themselves. As if that were not enough, anyone helping such a woman is a conspirator. This is the new world and more than a few states may feel called to do everything possible to “save lives.”

As a small reminder, the “E” in “email” stands for evidence, and a “Text” is a “tip” to law enforcement. When women discuss possible plans to travel, order medication (never do so with one’s personal card, buy a burner card), do so over the phone in discussion or even better, in person. Additionally, never hand a device over to law enforcement unless they have a warrant. If asked questions that “feel” in any way related to abortion, invoke your right to remain silent and blame an uncle that doesn’t exist so as not to tip off the cop. Say something like, “My lawyer uncle made everyone promise to never have discussions with law enforcement without calling him or my lawyer, or I’d probably just answer your questions.” Never ever believe that you can earn goodwill by cooperating with the police. By blaming a pretend uncle, it makes it appear that you’d talk, you have nothing to hide, but you’d promised. The cop may lessen his or her suspicions. A little.

It is a new world and Democratic members of Congress are just starting to get involved to prevent the sale of information that could be used against women or even those attempting to help them. One can expect to see other concerns explored with equal seriousness and sense of urgency.
