Trump slams Biden administration for inflation, price increases: ‘Nonsense’

Published

on

Former President Donald Trump told “Hannity” Tuesday that President Biden is very much like former President Jimmy Carter, but that his focus on job-killing and inflation-inducing green energy policies is making things worse than they were in the 1970s.

Carter, now 97, oversaw the Iran Hostage Crisis, stagflation, and the infamous U.S. “gas lines” – where shortages of petroleum led to rules that dictated drivers could fill up their vehicles only on days that specifically matched even or odd digits on their license plates.

“What is happening to prices is many times more than any possible tax increase that anybody could get. On top of that, in this new [Build Back Better] bill, they want big tax increases: People will pay massive tax increases. I am not talking about the wealthy, I am talking about everybody,” Trump said.

The green energy policies of today’s Democrats are causing massive economic pain, especially in states like California, he added.

“Look at the brownouts all over California. It’s terrible. All of this nonsense they are doing. They want to replace clean fossil fuels,” Trump told host Sean Hannity.

California also has the nation’s highest gas tax, at nearly 69 cents per gallon – closely followed by Democratic-run states Illinois with 60 cents and Pennsylvania with just under 59 cents per gallon. The lowest state gas tax is found in oil-rich Alaska, where it is 15 cents per gallon, according to the Tax Foundation.

High gas prices are posted at a full service gas station in Beverly Hills, California, Sunday, Nov. 7, 2021.

On “Hannity.” Trump said the Democrats in power were ignoring an effective fuel as they embark on their green agenda.

“Natural gas is very clean but it’s powerful,” Trump said.

“It could fuel our country and they want to replace it with wind — where they spend billions of dollars in subsidies for it. Everything comes from other countries. It’s unbelievable.”

The former president previously championed the ability for the U.S. to source such fuel domestically, from the expansive Bakken deposits of North Dakota and Marcellus deposit spanning New York, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

Murder plot, Christmas favorites: Waco stages bring variety of holiday plays | Arts & Theatre

Braziel, who co-founded the theater troupe with Collin Selman, serves as the production’s stage manager with Luann Jennings as its director. Performances are scheduled for 7 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Dec. 10-11, and 2 p.m. Sunday and Dec. 12, at Jubilee Theatre, 1319 N. 15th St. In keeping with another Silent House mission, the Friday night performances will be translated into sign language. Tickets are $15 and available through Silent House’s website, silenthousetheatre.com.

Waco Civic Theatre starts its holiday lineup on Thursday with its production of Barbara Robinson’s “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” in a four-performance run directed by Tredessa Thomas.

The show, which concerns a church’s Nativity pageant that unwinds when it includes a rowdy bunch of siblings in its casting, is the first of three holiday shows by the community theater.

After this weekend’s production, the WCT will stage “A Little House Christmas,” directed by Krystal Marshall, and “The Most Wonderful Show of the Year,” written and directed by Melissa Green.

Executive director Eric Shephard said the triple-billed December wasn’t intentional, but developed from an overflow of actors and directors interested in doing something for the holidays after a prolonged pandemic break from the stage. “It’s sort of like, ‘Let’s do all the theater we can manage to do,'” he said. “It’s hard to say no to an opportunity when it arose.”

Netflix reveals release date for Vikings: Valhalla, other shows

Published

on

There’s a ton of good genre stuff either on right now or about to drop, from The Wheel of Time to The Witcher to The Book of Boba Fett and beyond. And it looks like 2022 will be just as packed. Netflix has unveiled its genre lineup for the new year, and it’s robust.

So what sci-fi, fantasy and history shows are coming to Netflix next year? The biggest news is probably that Vikings: Valhalla — Netflix’s sequel series to History’s Vikings — will premiere on February 25. The announcement also came with some new images:

The reveal was short on other specific release dates, but there were a few, including Archive on January 14, In From The Cold on January 28, and Raising Dion season 2 February 1. As usual, Netflix is very busy.

The Umbrella AcademyStranger ThingsThe Sandman and more are all coming to Netflix in 2022

There were a lot of other shows and movies Netflix confirmed are coming out in 2022 but didn’t give exact premiere dates for, including Magic: The Gathering, Resident Evil, The Sandman, The Umbrella Academy season 3, The Witcher: Blood OriginAlice in Borderlandi season 2, All of Us Are Dead, Army of the Dead: Lost Vegas, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners, First KillLocke & Key season 3, Stranger Things season 4 and The Cuphead Show!

A bunch of these came with neat little synopses. For example:

  • The Umbrella Academy season 3: After putting a stop to the 1960s doomsday, the Umbrella Academy returns home to 2019, convinced they have fixed the timeline. But after a brief moment of celebration, they realize things aren’t exactly how they left them… Welcome to the Sparrow Academy.”
  • Stranger Things season 4: “Top-secret government experiments and a dangerous gateway that connects our world to a powerful yet sinister realm? Sounds like Hawkins.”
  • The Sandman: “A rich blend of modern myth and dark fantasy by Neil Gaiman
    (Good Omens, Coraline) that follows the people and places affected by Morpheus, the Dream King, as he mends the cosmic — and human — mistakes he’s made during his vast existence.”
  • Resident Evil: “A live action, scripted series building on Capcom’s legendary video game franchise starring Lance Reddick as Albert Wesker. Nearly three decades after the discovery of the T-virus, an outbreak reveals the Umbrella Corporation’s dark secrets.”
  • Magic: The Gathering: “An all-new animated event series…following the lore of the compelling characters, and fantastic worlds that have entertained and delighted fans for more than 25 years.”
  • Locke & Key season 3: “The Locke family uncovers more magic within Keyhouse, while a new threat – the most dangerous one yet – looms in Matheson with plans of his own for the keys.”

Bring it.
