#GreenFail: Taxpayers Foot $107K Bill for Wind Turbines That Don't Work

Wind turbines are racist. Let me explain.

Have you ever seen a black wind turbine? No. Have you ever seen a brown wind turbine? No. They’re all white. Every. Single. One.

But wind turbines aren’t just gigantic, racially insensitive, diversity-denying jerks. They have other vices as well.

Recently, Seattle’s Waterfront Park decided it would be a good idea to buy a set of three wind turbines for around $107,000. The three wind turbines (who are all white, if you were wondering) will generate $1.39 worth of electricity a day, or a spectacular $42 a month.

Now, that may not seem like a lot, but that’s because that’s the low estimate. At peak generation, the turbines will create about . . . wait for it . . . over 5 bucks a day! Or $168 a month in electricity! At that rate, it will only take about 53 years for the wind turbines to pay for themselves! Well, assuming no maintenance costs. Or staffing. Or anything else.

City Councilwoman Sissi Bruch summed up the wind turbines’ energy production perfectly --- along with the reason government is horrible at everything:

“I did not realize they would produce so little energy. I wouldn’t have voted for it knowing it was that little.” Of course, even these disastrous estimates are just guesses.

City officials can’t even be sure because, you know, they’re wind turbines. They can’t predict wind speeds. They aren’t God.

One other minor issue --- even the crappy amount of electricity they were supposed to generate is difficult to live up to when they aren’t even turned on. A maintenance issue is preventing them from actually operating.

Of course, green energy projects rarely have anything to do with green energy. An operational set of wind turbines was never the intent of the city council. Their main function? According to Nathan West, director of community and economic development for Seattle, they were built “to ensure we have a vertical element to draw visitors to the park.” To translate, they were built to look pretty.

Sure, they’ll be able to generate enough energy to illuminate some lights in the park as well (when they’re finally turned on), but the reality is they are just there as a “design element” that adds to the “positive aesthetic” in the park and “symbolizes energy creation.”

$107,000 to symbolize energy creation.

The only thing these wind turbines symbolize is wasted tax payer money --- and white supremacy.

And that’s why the wind turbines at Waterfront Park in Washington are yet another #GreenFail!

Former Obama admin. Secretary says we need a 'truth commission' to 'erase Trump's lies'

The far-left gets scarier each day. Now, former Obama administration Secretary of Labor, Robert Reich, is advocating for the establishment of a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission" once President Trump leaves office. He tweeted that the commission would "erase Trump's lies, comfort those who have been harmed by his hatefulness, and name every official, politician, executive, and media mogul whose greed and cowardice enabled this catastrophe." Glenn describes how similar models have been used in places like Serbia and Rwanda, and it never ends well for the minority party. In fact, Glenn says, an idea like this one can be used to further surveil and control the citizens who disagree.

How our 'free' press is censoring the truth like NEVER BEFORE

The New York Post released last week a report that COULD put an end to the Joe Biden campaign. It's too bad the NY Post is unable to share the story — which all centers on information found on the alleged Hunter Biden laptop mysteriously left at a computer repair store — with the world on social media. But the publication has been LOCKED from sharing stories on Twitter for over four days now. And it's not just the Post. Glenn describes how MSNBC's Chuck Todd blatantly disregarded fact during an interview with Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, how the Washington Post failed to correct the same claims, and how leaders at Facebook have direct ties to Joe Biden. Our "free" press continues to censor the truth and it becomes more and more frightening each day.

Evil is washing over the world right now

Glenn says he believes we're living the beginning days of the time that has been foretold and that evil is washing over the world. So, what do we do? First, we must NOT use violence. Instead, we must prepare physically AND spiritually. In this clip, Glenn gives his recommendations for how to ready your life and your family for the potential coming chaos.

How Bill O'Reilly Would've Handled the Hunter Biden Story | Ep 86

The king of "No Spin" and bestselling author of "Killing Crazy Horse," Bill O'Reilly, dishes with Glenn about his time at Fox News. He explains why he believes he got labeled as "being difficult to work with," what happened when he asked executives if he could moderate a presidential debate, and what the first words he ever said to Glenn were (hint: It was typical O'Reilly). He also reveals how he would've handled the Hunter Biden email story if he were the editor of the New York Post, gives his predictions for the final debate (if it even happens), and imagines what Donald Trump will do if he doesn't win a second term. "He ain't gonna get down to Dallas and paint," O'Reilly says. "He'll probably buy the L.A. Lakers and fire LeBron James!"
