Electric Vehicles Expensive, Unreliable and Environmentally Damaging

Dr. Jay Lehr and Tom Harris discuss how we have been sold a bill of goods on electric vehicles (EVs). Rather than being economical, reliable, and ‘green,’ they are the exact opposite. When you consider the rare earths, lithium, cobalt, and other minerals needed to produce EV batteries, and the fact that much of this is produced with child and near-slave labor with practically no health, safety, or environmental safeguards in places like Communist China and the Congo, it becomes clear that EVs are a disaster. 

The ICSC-Canada Economics and Policy Advisor Robert Lyman explain that even the idea that EVs are ‘zero-emissions’ vehicles makes no sense:

“To begin with, about half the lifetime carbon-dioxide emissions from an electric car comes from the energy used to produce the car, especially in the mining and processing of the raw materials needed for the battery. This compares unfavorably with the manufacture of a gasoline-powered car which accounts for 17% of the car’s lifetime carbon dioxide emissions. When a new EV appears in the showroom, it has already been responsible for 30,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions. The equivalent amount for manufacturing a conventional car: 14,000 pounds… Once on the road, the carbon dioxide emissions of EVs depend on the power-generation fuel used to recharge the battery.”

Join Jay and Tom in this week’s episode of The Other Side of the Story to learn what environmentalists and their allies in mainstream media and government are not telling you about electric vehicles.

Stay away from EVs and get rid of the Democrats who downed your oil pipeline Democrats have been using the most common coup tactics for 50 years in the USA:

1 Force Borders open and hand tax dollars to any unskilled 3rd world ilk who is able to step over the Democrat Downed Wall.

2 Seek Cabal Bribes while pushing fake Russian Collusion.

3 Steal Votes by hijacking Dominion Voting machines at polling places

Carmen Maria Montiel says her country was warned by Cubans in the 1980s to be careful of the changing government, “but we were arrogant like the US.” Because her former country was one of the wealthiest at the time, she said, they ignored the warnings of the Cubans, who had experienced something similar when Fidel Castro came to power…

Are We Allowed to Question Elections Anymore?

Are We Allowed to Question Elections Anymore?

Whether the issues are simply mistakes and human error, or people trying to influence the outcome of our elections, we need to find out and deal with these problems, preferably before they get worse. Will we stand up to protect the vote in our counties and our states? Will we promote audits of the counts to check for any errors or discrepancies?

Vaccine Coercion – Impact on Children and Churches

Vaccine Coercion – Impact on Children and Churches

First masks and now vaccines. Why vaccinate children? Is there any need? Were children included in the initial vaccine studies?

The question becomes, “What opinion do you want your child to follow?” Yours or someone who is playing psychiatrist?

Should You Just Say No to the New Genetic Juice?

Should You Just Say No to the New Genetic Juice?

In many ways, the first wave of either intentional or accidental bioterrorism was with the COVID-19 respiratory illness. The second wave is more insidious and broadly applied to a population prepared by months of fear and isolation, with a propagandized and brainwashed medical and patient community vaccinating themselves with novel technology that codes for a circulating weapon of bioterrorism…
