Increasingly, energy is being used as a weapon against the American people.  Some are being denied the use of energy or there are curbs, penalties or denials on the use of energy.  Couple this with the attack on personal property rights and you  can see that we have a government that is overreaching and simply out of control.  

Returning to Crosstalk to discuss the weaponization of energy and property rights was Tom DeWeese.  Tom is president of American Policy Center.  He is one of the nation’s leading advocates of individual liberty, free enterprise, private property rights, personal privacy, back-to-basics education and American sovereignty and independence and protecting our Constitutionally-guaranteed rights.  Tom is also the grassroots coordinator for CFACT.

Tom began by noting that when you don’t have your own property to stand on, how do you declare your independence, such as your freedom of speech.  More and more property is becoming government property where they dictate to you what you’re going to say and if you violate that you’re in big trouble.  Don’t believe that?  Tom said he’s asking people around the nation to go to one of their city council meetings and ask the following question: What can I do on my property without your permission? 

Tom went on to describe a situation in Pataskala, Ohio, where the Chinese are moving in to build a “monster” solar panel assembly plant.  He believes the lead company in the project is merely a “shell” designed to get around U.S. regulations that would otherwise prevent a foreign company from owning property.  Local activists that are trying to fight back are up against a mayor and city council that are seeing dollar signs.  Hence, those that are fighting back are being referred to as “radicals” to be ignored.

Jim has Tom comment on other aspects of this issue including:

  • A green climate corps being put together by the Biden administration.
  • Electric vehicle sales are down.  Why the big push for us to buy them?
  • The “green invasion” of churches.
  • Squatters rights.
  • What can we do?

…and much more!
