“You want a long distance electric vehicle? You want a fast electric vehicle? You want a vehicle that charges quickly? Buy American!” Joe Biden…what he’s left out is the materials for the battery are mined in Africa under control of the draconian Communist Chinese Republic!
In January, 2021, just hours after his inauguration, “President 😵💫”Biden signed an Executive Order that essentially shut down American energy production. Therefore, the United States went from energy independent to energy dependent, especially leaning on our adversaries who have the oil. Additionally, DementiaJoe is pushing to rejoin the Paris Accords, which favors India, the USSR and the draconian Communist Chinese Republic, with all three contributing zero dollars. And don’t forget that the American automobile has as close to zero emissions thanks to American technology. Yet the electric vehicle is being shoved down our throats. All done on purpose as the attack on American energy is promulgated by the ideological zealots of the orthodox, radical socialist liberal progressive left who want to torpedo the American oil industry. Yet they fly…and fly…and fly!
The current administration is blind to the fact that the economy and high inflation rates have impacted families with increased bills to the tune of hundreds of dollars each month. So, these blind politicians want struggling families to drop an average of $60,650.00, according to Kelly Blue Book, on an electric vehicle, when they are having trouble putting food on the table. And materials for the EV is in tight supply.
The German “Allgemeiner Deutscher Automobil-Club” has the ADAC EcoTest, which is a popular ecofriendliness car rating system, which is based on its own measurements, independent from car manufacturers.
For combustion engines, the ADAC EcoTest consists of:
-Assessment of fuel consumption (CO2 emissions) and pollutant emissions
-Based on specially developed real-life driving cycles, which go beyond the mandatory type approval test cycles.
-Objective: innovation, light-weight design and fuel efficiency across all vehicle classes
And now ADAC focuses on electric vehicles. ADAC’s Ecotest calculated the kWh needed to fully charge a range of electric vehicle batteries.The results of tests for all-electric car models: E-car drivers have to plan for a particularly large amount of power loss for some models – but will have to pay extra. According to the ADAC Ecotest, a 100 kWh battery in a Tesla Model X100D actually needs 108.3 kWh. The Kia e-Niro Spirit has 72.3 kWh for a 64 kWh battery. The Jaguar I-PACE EV400 also needs at least 10 kWh more for a 90 kWh battery.
Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, who as mayor of South Bend, Indiana, almost trashed the city, continues to promote electric vehicles going for $60,000+ during a recession, targeting people who have trouble putting food on the table. Yet he is flying all over the place. And we still have Biden referring to himself as “vice president” while lamenting his inability to buy an electric Corvette, in the latest job title mixup from the commander-in-chief. “I’m not going to be able to do it because I can’t drive a vehicle while I’m vice president,” Biden said during a virtual meeting with General Motors CEO Mary Barra, who as GM’s CEO may finally realize that EV’s are charged through power plants that burn fossil fuels, oil and coal, to generate electricity! Hypocrisy galore!
Buttigieg also is failing to include the time, and cost, it takes to not only charge the battery, but also the cost, approximately $14,000, to replace it. And what about the disposal of the batteries that are lithium based and rely on a mix of cobalt, manganese, nickel, graphite and other primary components. Some of these materials are harder to find than others through land strip mining, which damages the topography and water can flood the mines, that will affect the local aquifer. In other words, pollution. And which country has the almost monopoly on lithium? Don’t take to long to guess!
Don’t forget that is was Senator Joe Biden(D-DE) who pushed for the draconian Communist Chinese Republic to receive “Most Favored Nation Status,” which consists of: “Most Favored Nation (MFN) status is an economic position in which a country enjoys the best trade terms given by its trading partner(s). That means it receives the lowest tariffs, the fewest trade barriers, and the highest import quotas (or none at all). In other words, all MFN status trade partners must treat each other equally.” Just take a good, hard look at the US-CCR economic relationship. In a nutshell, the CCR simply benefits greatly as their exports exceed their imports. The draconian Communist Chinese Republic felt the pinch with the sanctions from President Donald John Trump. They wanted him out and with disinformation supported by the DOJ, FBI and ardent radical Democrats during his tenure and run for re-election, they got their wish. So, with DementiaJoe as the fraudulent president things reversed to “normal,” as the Biden’s benefited financially. Just ask Hunter Biden.
During a Congressional hearing, Representative Thomas Massie (R-KY) informed Buttigieg that the average American household uses 17% of their electricity on air conditioning, or 1,870 KWh per year on the a/c. Massie then asked Buttigieg how much more electricity would be used if an EV was plugged in with comparison to the a/c. Buttigieg was bloody clueless, but was attempting political double talk before he was stopped. Massie informed the uninformed Transportation Secretary that it would take at least four times the amount of a/c electricity to charge an EV. DementiaJoe said that he wanted 50% of American cars to be EV’s. Financially speaking, it would cost a family twice the amount to charge the car as compared to a/c.
In Biden’s “Inflation Reduction Act” bill, consumers were being offered a $7,500 tax break on the purchase of an EV. HOWEVER, and it’s a doozy, of the 75 electric vehicles available, only 25 fit the bill for the tax break. So, EV’s continue to tank! Buttigieg says that EV’s will save you gas money. But he still believes that the average American can afford a $60,000 car, as food and gas prices are Sky high! As a case in point, Ford announced a price increase for the F-150EV. Out of touch and disconnected! So, get more money!
Citing “significant material cost increases and other factors,” Ford’s announcement revealed price hikes between $6,000 and $8,500 for its electric vehicles. The Ford F-150 Lightning Pro, for example, will sell for $46,974 — a $7,000 increase from the $39,947 charged for last year’s model. GM likewise increased the cost of its electric Hummer by $6,250 last month. Ford announced an $8,500 price increase of the Mustang Mach-E EV, going up to $75,000 MSRP. Ford says that are “evolving market conditions.” HUH? Absolutely nothing to gain from EV’s.
According to the Department of Energy, the 2022 Ford Mach-E qualified for Biden’s tax credit. The 2023 model, however, did not appear on the department’s list of EVs that qualified. The 2022 made it for the tax credit just before the 2022 midterms. Something wrong with that, wouldn’t you say?
Workers, including children, mine the necessary components in harsh and dangerous conditions to meet the world’s soaring demand for cobalt, a mineral essential to powering electric vehicles, laptops, and smartphones…
About 90 percent of the draconian Communist Chinese Republic’s cobalt originates in Congo, where Chinese firms dominate the mining industry. The cobalt begins its journey at a mine such as Tilwezembe, a former industrial site turned artisanal operation on the outskirts of Kolwezi where hundreds of men scour the earth with hand tools. These men call themselves “creuseurs,” French for “diggers.” They toil inside dozens of holes pockmarking the mine’s moonscape-like bottom. The tunnels are dug by hand and burrow deep underground, illuminated only by the toylike plastic lamps strapped to the miners’ heads. “We are suffering,” said one digger, Nathan Muyamba, 29. “And our suffering is for what?”
Imagine you’re in your EV on the New York State Thruway and the battery requires to be recharged. There’s an upcoming rest stop and you decide to pull in, but also to recharge yourself. However, there’s a line for the multiple charging stations. You will be there for just a little bit…like hours!
Well, according to Kelly Blue Book, the lack of charging stations and slow charging times in many cases will cause delays. Even extreme weather conditions like below-zero temperatures can destroy a drivers’ ability to charge their vehicles.
Charging times can vary due to several factors:
-What is your power source?
-How much power can your EV handle?
-How is the weather? Cold weather will slow down the process.
-How can drivers charge their vehicles and get back on the road more quickly?
Depending on an electric vehicle’s charging source and battery capacity, some drivers can charge their cars to 80% in as little as 30 minutes using a Level 3 fast charger.
Unfortunately, that isn’t the standard baseline. Most drivers will need up to a full day to charge a fully depleted electric car battery if they use the standard three-prong plugs found in the walls of most homes. Moreover, according to the National Energy Assistance Directors Association, over $16 Billion is owed by US households in late energy bills. The demand on the electric grid will put a strain on the system. And the cost of electricity has jumped 16%, along with the price of natural gas.
All under DementiaJoe’s administration…prices go up, up, up!
A full day to charge the battery! Imagine that. I wouldn’t be happy having to drive long distance.
As reported by Newsmax, all new cars sold in the bizarroland of California by 2035 will have to be zero emission under plans set to be adopted by the state this week, as the biggest economy in the United States drives a move away from fossil fuel. Proposals to be debated by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) this week will formalize targets set by Governor Gavin Newsom(D) and will likely prod other states in the same direction. The plans, which board member Daniel Sperling recently told CNN he was “99.9%” confident would be adopted, also include incremental steps mandating more than a third of 2026 car sales in the state be zero emission, and over two-thirds by 2030. And who is going to help the people who cannot afford them in the land of milk and honey, along with record homeless, growing numbers of illegal aliens, high taxes and high crime. One might say that the state government has closed its eyes and they have! And now there are rumors floating around that banks will not offer loans for non-electric cars. Thanks to the crazy greenies!
And by the way, as officials in California unveiled a plan to phase out new combustion powered cars, they are asking residents to avoid charging their EV’s in the interest of not overwhelming the power grid. Can you say “brown-out,” “black-out” and “rolling black outs?” California? California then told residents to stop using appliances and air conditioning and stop charging their electric cars because the grid was strained. Few know that they SHUT DOWN the power in some areas of California…without warning…and then said it was a mistake!Welcome to the Twilight Zone!
The most efficient vehicle on the market are hybrids and sure cost a lot less than EV’s…a lot less. And don’t forget that the hybrid’s battery is self charging as the engine runs. It’s the best of both worlds! And the dependency on fossil fuels will be reduced…These vehicles should be the priority! And don’t forget that the Democrats are creative in finding ways to fool their already fooled voting base.
Electronic vehicles are a disaster for the energy grid, a disaster for the environment, and a disaster for your personal autonomy….and who will own/run the recharging stations? The Federal government? No thanks!
