Biden Set To Sign Another Far-Reaching ‘Climate Change’ Executive Order

President Joe Biden is set to sign another executive order that will address climate change and issues related to the environment, such as jobs, “equitable” clean energy, and “restoring” scientific integrity throughout the federal government.

These actions by the president will dovetail Biden’s previous executive orders on climate, which recommitted the United States to the Paris Climate Accords.

The order will also review of “harmful rollbacks and standards” that protect air, water, and will direct federal agencies to “eliminate fossil fuel subsidies as consistent with applicable law and identify new opportunities to spur innovation, commercialization, and deployment of clean energy technologies and infrastructure.”

Perhaps most drastic, the White House will establish that climate change will be an essential element of national security.

Biden Promised Cimate Change Action

During the 2020 campaign season, then-candidate Joe Biden called for the U.S. to phase out its dependence on fossil fuels.

Biden’s order on Wednesday is said to, “empower American workers and businesses to lead a clean energy revolution.” The goal would be to achieve a carbon pollution-free sector by 2035, and “an irreversible path to a net-zero economy by 2050.”

On the national security front, Biden had tapped former Secretary of State John Kerry to serve as “special envoy for climate” and even added him to the National Security Council.

Which ‘Build Back Better’ Jobs Are More Important?

The Biden administration insists that the new EO is “consistent with the goals of the President’s Build Back Better jobs and recovery plan” and that clean energy jobs are a “central pillar” of the plan. 

But not everyone seems to be included in “Build Back Better.”

Guy Williams, who has worked in the energy industry for 53 years, found out that he would be unemployed by the cancellation of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

He told Fox News Channel’s Steve Doocy that, “It’s like a kick in the stomach that knocks the wind out of you.” Williams went on to say that, “We’ve waited on this pipeline for 10 years.”

The cancellation wiped out approximately 13,000 high paying union jobs in the United States and Canada.

The move brought sharp criticism from labor unions who heavily supported Biden in the presidential election.

A statement from the Laborers’ International Union of North America, or LIUNA, stated they were “disappointed” in Biden’s decision, and said that the move, “will kill thousands of good-paying #UNION jobs.” LIUNA had endorsed Biden in October.

The United Association of Union Plumbers and Pipefitters stated that, “Sadly, the Biden administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work.”

Some Democrats Could Regret Climate Change Vote

Congress has also made moves to take action on climate change.

In the House last year, Democrats passed H.R.9, which would have required the U.S. to stick with the Paris Accords provisions.

In states where many jobs are dependent on oil and natural gas, several House seats may vulnerable and up for grabs in 2022 due to Biden’s executive order.

Fox reports that Republicans are already using it as a campaign strategy.

Among some of those who voted for H.R.9 are Rep. Abigail Spanberger of Virginia and Rep. Vincente Gonzalez of Texas. Both are Democrats and won re-election by less than 3%. 

Other House members who voted for H.R.9 include Democrat Reps. Susan Wild, Conor Lamb, and Matt Cartwright, all from Pennsylvania.

In Texas, Democrat Reps. Henry Cuellar, Colin Allred, and Filemon Vela all voted in favor.

Any Democrats who might still appear moderate, such as West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin, are being put in between what they know to be bad for their states, and having to draw ire from the left wing of their party.

But Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and the rest of her ‘squad’ don’t seem to care about displaced union workers who helped Joe Biden to victory in November.

Prior to the election, she demanded that Biden approve the New Green Deal if elected. 

“Climate is now a top-three issue for voters across the country and it is about time that our Congress and our administration starts acting like it”, she stated while addressing supporters outside of the DNC Headquarters. She went on to say, “It’s way past time.”

She has also gone on to give a pretty dire warning to the Biden administration to “keep their promise” on climate change issues.

Newest squad member Cori Bush (D-MO) also weighed in prior to her swearing in on the need for “bold leadership.”

“When we don’t act, people who look like me die. And so there is just no alternative right now than to make sure we have bold leadership,” Bush claimed.

Bernie Sanders Has Already Drafted ‘Dozens Of Executive Orders’ To Bypass Congress If Elected President

By PoliZette Staff | January 31, 2020

Disturbing campaign documents have just come to light showing that 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ staffers have already begun preparing “dozens of executive orders” so that he can bypass Congress in the first days of his presidency, should he win the election in November.

The documents, which were obtained by the Washington Post, show that Sanders’ has executive orders prepared on a wide range of issues that include the environment, immigration, and the economy.

Sanders’ team has prepared over a dozen options for reversing President Donald Trump’s immigration policies, with one of them being the immediate halting of construction on the border wall. Another potential executive order would remove the limit for the number of refugees that could be admitted to the United States, while a third would reinstate Barack Obama’s DREAMER program, which granted legal status to undocumented immigrants who were brought to this country as children.

This is just the beginning of the executive orders that Sanders has planned. One order legalizes marijuana in the entirety of the United States, and another would allow the U.S. to import prescription drugs from Canada. Sanders would also declare climate change to be a national emergency as soon as he took office, and he would ban the export of crude oil.

This shows that Sanders is anticipating that Republicans will keep control of the Senate come November, and that he has no intention of letting this stop him from achieving his radical agenda.

Another document obtained by the post was written by Faiz Shakir, Sanders’s campaign manager; Warren Gunnels, a senior adviser; and Josh Orton, the campaign policy director, who all urge him to use the executive orders to undo the many “wrongs” of Trump’s presidency.

“We cannot accept delays from Congress on some of the most pressing issues, especially those like immigration where Trump has governed with racism and for his own corrupt benefit,” they said.

These documents make it all the more terrifying that Sanders has taken the lead in Democratic primary polls, according to The Blaze. This man clearly thinks that he is above the law, and he would destroy America as we know it if he is able to get to the White House.

Now, more than ever, it’s important that we ensure Trump is reelected in 2020, if for no other reason than to keep this nutcase Sanders out of power.
