FrontPage Magazine Sits Down With Nick Adams- Author of “The American Boomerang”

June 11th, 2014 | by Nick Adams

Last week I sat down FrontPage Magazine Editor and friend, Dr. Jamie Glazov, to discuss my new book “The American Boomerang: How The World’s Greatest Turnaround Nation Will Do It Again“, and my views on everything from American exceptionalism to political correctness to religion to foreign policy to anti-Americanism to the Second Amendment to multiculturalism to Islam. Whew! This is a must-read interview.

Below is an excerpt. To read the full interview, visit Frontpagemag.com.

FP: Tell us about your new book and why people should read it.

Adams: This book violates left-wing taboos in every chapter, if not in every line.

More than that, the most powerful case exists against anti-Americanism, and yet it has never been made. I’m making it, and people need to hear it. I’m trying to create a thirst among Americans for rediscovering and reaffirming American values. Some might say “You’re preaching to the choir,” I say: “Most of the choir has forgotten the melody!”

Also, I wanted a book written by an average guy with a love of the middle class. The America I love is the real, traditional one: entrepreneurial, family-oriented, churchgoing, Norman Rockwell-loving, flag waving etc. The only way America can get back is by believing in itself again. I want America to be relaxed and comfortable with its position in the world.

FP: Talk to us a bit about the pathology of anti-Americanism.

Adams: Well, anti-Americanism has been central to the Left, and the Left, along with the world media, creates “world opinion”- which isn’t worth a dime, by the way. But all around the world, America is painted as dangerous, racist and selfish, stupid and lazy. And yet it’s the most successful melting pot anywhere. In the same week in 2012 it landed on Mars and topped the gold medal tally at the London Olympics. Its citizens are the most charitable per capita of any country. And as for dangerous- that’s absolute bilge. If I were to run out of gas in the middle of the night, I would feel more confident knocking on the door of an American home than one in any other country I know.

    you are a good American, almost, Nick. As soon as your papers are complete. You are exceptional in the American spirit already.

    Everything Obama does is a threat to my future. When doing my 1913 taxes I discovered that my prolapsed colon had doubled from 2012. That’s a threat to my financial stability.

    When Prof. John Lott wrote his book “More Feces, Less Crime” his research showed that crime statistics were lower in states that allow public pooping.

    Twisting John Lott’s philosophy Cruz and his Atty. Gen. Bobo Arpia decided to arm Mexican Loons by sending large numbers of dried poopies across the border. I look at that as a threat to my physical safety.

    Because Hoover and his minsnd live in our communities, our restrooms are unsafe. Nativeborn Americans are harassed, insulted, and even pooped at.

    Altogether job security, our fuf
    Obama and liberals are the problem. A return to constitutional farting is the cure

    Thrilling, I know. The thing to remember is that it is in a utility’s financial interest to generate (or buy) and deliver as much power as possible. The higher the demand, the higher the investments, the higher the utility shareholder profits. In short, all things being equal, utilities want to sell more power. (All things are occasionally not equal, but we’ll leave those complications aside for now.)

    Now, into this cozy business model enters cheap distributed solar PV, which eats away at it like acid.

    First, the power generated by solar panels on residential or commercial roofs is not utility-owned or utility-purchased. From the utility’s point of view, every kilowatt-hour of rooftop solar looks like a kilowatt-hour of reduced demand for the utility’s product. Not something any business enjoys. (This is the same reason utilities are instinctively hostile to energy efficiency and demand response programs, and why they must be compelled by regulations or subsidies to create them. Utilities don’t like reduced demand!)

    It’s worse than that, though. Solar power peaks at midday, which means it is strongest close to the point of highest electricity use — “peak load.” Problem is, providing power to meet peak load is where utilities make a huge chunk of their money. Peak power is the most expensive power. So when solar panels provide peak power, they aren’t just reducing demand, they’re reducing demand for the utilities’ most valuable product.

    But wait. Renewables are limited by the fact they are intermittent, right? “The sun doesn’t always shine,” etc. Customers will still have to rely on grid power for the most part. Right?

    This is a widely held article of faith, but EEI (of all places!) puts it to rest. (In this and all quotes that follow, “DER” means distributed energy resources, which for the most part means solar PV.)

    Due to the variable nature of renewable DER, there is a perception that customers will always need to remain on the grid. While we would expect customers to remain on the grid until a fully viable and economic distributed non-variable resource is available, one can imagine a day when battery storage technology or micro turbines could allow customers to be electric grid independent. To put this into perspective, who would have believed 10 years ago that traditional wire line telephone customers could economically “cut the cord?”

    Hello, Mr. Adams. Most of the United States agrees with your opposition to Obama. He and his family act like sharecroppers who have won the lottery. On behalf of the American people, may I offer my apologies for the actions of this narcissistic empty shell of a man. He is intensely disliked here, and we are counting the minutes until he is out of office.
    Kind regards
