So the Trump Administration is now calling natural gas “freedom gas” and carbon dioxide “molecules of freedom.”

Oh, what fresh hell is this?

The United States Department of Energy (DOE) has apparently started referring to carbon dioxide as “molecules of freedom” and natural gas as “freedom gas” , according to its latest press release.

In a statement announcing an increase of natural gas exports, energy officials used the surprising new terms. The statement announces the expansion of a facility in Quintana, Texas, that produces liquefied natural gas (LNG) for worldwide export.

“Increasing export capacity from the Freeport LNG project is critical to spreading freedom gas throughout the world by giving America’s allies a diverse and affordable source of clean energy. Further, more exports of U.S. LNG to the world means more U.S. jobs and more domestic economic growth and cleaner air here at home and around the globe,” said U.S. Under Secretary of Energy Mark W. Menezes.

“I am pleased that the Department of Energy is doing what it can to promote an efficient regulatory system that allows for molecules of U.S. freedom to be exported to the world,” said Assistant Secretary for Fossil Energy Steven Winberg, who signed the export order.

Remember how the Bush Administration tried to get everybody to call french fries “freedom fries” when they were pissed off at France for not supporting the Iraq War? 

Yeah, well this is even dumber. 

I think the Trump Administration is trying to drive us into an ignorance coma by pumping stupidity in our direction 24 hours a day. 

I mean it seemed to work really well for Trump supporters.

      “President Donald Trump’s treasury secretary and top trade adviser reportedly opposed his plan for new tariffs on Mexican imports.

      Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer don’t usually agree on economic policies, but both senior officials disagreed with the president’s punitive plan for tariffs, reported CNBC.
      Trump announced the tariffs Thursday night on Twitter, saying a series of escalating tariffs would begin June 10 to punish Mexico for illegal immigrants heading across the U.S. border.

      The move was pushed by senior White House adviser Stephen Miller, possibly the most hardline anti-immigrant official in the Trump administration.

      The tariffs were announced while Vice President Mike Pence was traveling and senior economic adviser Larry Kudlow was undergoing hip replacement surgery.

      A source close to the White House told CNBC the surprise decision was the result of Trump getting “riled up” by talk radio hosts about the recent surge in border crossings.’

      This testimonial video was published by Republicans for the Rule of Law and Protect Democracy.

      Former Republican federal prosecutors discuss how if President Trump were anyone else, he would have been charged with obstruction of justice based off the information released in the Mueller Report.

      Featured in the video are Donald Ayer, Paul Rosenzweig, and Jeffrey Harris.

      Donald served as the Deputy Attorney General under President HW Bush, Paul was Senior Counsel to Special Counsel Ken Starr and Deputy Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security under President Bush, and Jeffrey served as Deputy Associate Attorney General for President Reagan and Principal Assistant to Rudy Giuliani.

      If you soak your freedom fries in the freedom gas it taste quite good

    Reminds me of “freedom fries,” what the GOP labeled French fries when France was smart enough not to join in the Iraq invasion. Not much imagination among Republicans but they sure love to make a mockery about words like “freedom” and “liberty.” It would be nice if they understood how important those words really are.

    In 2018, more police officers died by suicide than died in the line of duty — and this year is on track to be even worse.
    The Los Angeles Police Department has made it part of their mission to prevent more deaths.

      You keep lighting the matches – don’t expect us to feel sorry for you – when you get torched. Those closest to the fire are first to get burned. Wink.
      Don’t worry. I know the reason she quit. And why Todd got thrashed. Why they ‘live beyond their means’. And it’s bigger than you and me kiddo.
      I wish it was simple. $arah grew up poor. Ego driven father and ‘dutiful’ wife with Christian women folk to keep an eye on ol Chucky’s hands.
      Either way. They took money from an account that was laundered. That might land them in jail. Better than death by the Russians I tell you.
      I think that is why $arah was not in Alaska when the AG showed up. I am waiting for the ‘official’ owner of this ‘account’ to be notified. Crickets.
      I really hope they pull their heads out of their asses before we get a financial global upheaval when that owner goes overseas to file charges.
      P.S. $arah lost her crew that would have trademarked everything like Kardasians do when she quit I think, or some time there after. Shrug.
