    Clyburn should have stepped down and allowed the new younger representatives take control perhaps he could have be Cicilline mentor help him navigate through the challenges of being committee chairman.This country needs new younger moral leadership in both parties that are smart intelligent humane and are about helping improve the lives of all citizens in this country.

    World War III Has Begun; How It Unfolds Depends on Us

    We think of the Russia-Ukraine war as a local conflict, but it is much more than that; it is a global war on multiple fronts. The war is not only a military conflict; it is also an economic war of attrition. With skyrocketing gas prices and shortage of staples, people all over the world are feeling the consequences of the war.

    This war is transforming the entire modus operandi of humanity. Since the dawn of time, we have been accustomed to living by the motto, “survival of the fittest.” By and large, the rule was that the strong determined the rules, and the rules were often abusive toward the weak. Now, it seems like a new mindset has set in: Wanting something and being strong enough to take it does not mean that the world will accept it.

    The war, therefore, is being fought on the inside no less, and perhaps more than on the outside. Our very makeup is changing from abusive to cooperative, from narcissistic to altruistic.

    It hurts, and it will not happen without a struggle, but it is irreversible. This is the path of our evolution toward the purpose of our creation—to encompass within us all of creation. To do that, we must come to care for it, just as a mother encompasses her child through her maternal love.

    The struggle to transition from our current uncaring and mean approach to all creations but ourselves, into wise and compassionate beings is called “the war of Gog and Magog” or Armageddon.

    Since the war is about our inner makeup, we can fight it within us. If we object to struggling with ourselves over who will rule—the ego or love—the physical reality will force us to choose love nonetheless. However, it will do so by hurting us in a very physical way.

    The war in Eastern Europe is nothing compared to what we might have to endure if we resist the process. The horrific descriptions of our sages and prophets hint at it, and we would not want to live through it.

    Alternatively, we can fight this war within us without firing a single bullet. The choice is in our hands. All we need is to continue in the same direction that nature is already leading us: toward connection. If we make an effort to care for one another, even though initially we don’t, then we are moving in the right direction. If we try to resolve conflicts not with guns or even legal battles, but by strengthening the care and friendship between us, then we are saving lives and sparing torments from countless people.

    In conclusion, let us try to rise above the hatred and see the human on the other side, who suffers too. Let us think that this war was given to us so we would think about each other more than we have so far. After all, were it not for this war, we would not notice one another. Now that it is here, we are no longer indifferent. Although our feelings our currently negative, now that we are aware of them, we can work on them together and turn them around. These are the wars of the Messiah who moshech [Hebrew: pulls] us out of the ego, and into mutual love.

    Why is Clyburn still in leadership . His time is up . He said it his self . Then he turns around and say will I will still be around. It is time for a new generation to take up leadership. I would say the new leadership is to establishment and does not go far enough. I would like to see progressives take over not someone who calms to be progressive . This is a big disappointment to Gen Z generation who turned out and big numbers. Just for them not have a seat at the table when it comes to leadership unbelievable

    Oil execs rip Biden admin's 'completely inaccurate,' 'flat-out lie' about US energy production

    Nov 29, 2022 FOX BUSINESS

    After the White House claimed that U.S. oil producers have "plenty of opportunities" to drill domestically, some executives are slamming the administration’s "completely inaccurate," "flat-out lie."

    "We've basically tracked about 125 specific actions that this administration and the Democratic Congress have done to slow down or stop oil production in America," American Energy Alliance President Tom Pyle said on "Varney & Co." Tuesday. "He has an 'America last' energy policy."

    When asked by Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy why President Biden "would rather let U.S. companies drill for oil in Venezuela than here in the U.S." Monday, NSC Strategic Communication Coordinator John Kirby defended easing oil sanctions against Venezuela, saying that there are plenty of untapped opportunities for companies to drill in the United States.

    On Saturday, the Treasury Department announced its decision to allow California-based Chevron to resume "limited" energy production in Venezuela after years of sanctions that have dramatically curtailed oil and gas profits that have flowed to Maduro’s government.

    Kirby told Doocy that his framing of the question was "not an accurate take on the president’s view," to which Doocy retorted that the president himself, earlier this month, said, "there is no more drilling."

    "There are plenty of opportunities for oil and gas companies to drill here in the United States," Kirby said. "I’ll let Chevron speak for this particular issue of sanctions relief, but our expectation is it won’t be a lot of oil coming out of there. It will have to be shipped to the United States."

    In response, United Refining Company Chairman and CEO John Catsimatidis also told host Ashley Webster on Tuesday that the move "makes no sense at all," after noting that Canada has the ability to export an additional 1 million barrels of crude oil per day to the U.S.

    "Can anybody figure out why we are giving business to Venezuela? Who's associated with China? Russia?" Catsimatidis asked. "Why are we giving them the business and not giving it to Canada?"

    Catsimatidis also said he was left "puzzled" by the White House’s response to the issue.

    "While Washington needs checks and balances, I hope we have additional checks and balances now that it'll be a Republican Congress at least," the billionaire CEO said.

    Pyle explained why the Biden administration may prefer to get oil from Iraq, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela, as opposed to Texas, New Mexico and North Dakota.

    "He simply wants to placate his big donors who don't want to see fossil fuels produced in this country," Pyle said. "And meanwhile, we're all hurting, and will continue to hurt under these policies."

    The American Energy Alliance president also warned about the environmental and economic consequences of foreign oil sources.

    "Production in Venezuela has decimated the industry, because of Maduro and his socialist policies," Pyle noted. "They don't produce oil and gas as clean as we do here. Their oil is worse for the environment than our oil. It's not about the climate. It's about an agenda where they do not want these resources… in this country."

    In addition, American jobs are likely to suffer, with Pyle predicting a "crushing" impact from outsourcing jobs to Venezuela.

    "It's not just the jobs in red states like Texas and Louisiana. Oil and gas industry – there's caterers, there's banks, there's real estate agents," Pyle listed. "There's folks in Minnesota who bring the sand over, the boots. It's not just jobs in the industry, it's jobs across the entire economy."

    This decision by the Biden administration is the latest step in the softening of hostile relations between the U.S. and Venezuelan governments. It came weeks after a major prisoner swap in which Venezuela freed seven imprisoned Americans in exchange for the U.S. freeing two nephews of Maduro’s wife. Maduro released two other Americans in March.

    While us dems have our acts together transitioned to glass-ceiling breaking leadership…. The GOP will not have their house speaker…. just a revolving door. McCarthy won't even have 218 because there are so many of us McCain Republicans that hate him. he just lacks integrity as a speaker… selling his soul to the Orange Jesus.

    Remember that speech on the floor Mr.McCarthy, then mean tweets had you go down to Marlargo to kiss his ring?
