Joe Biden declared a clean energy emergency because he can’t let a good crisis go to waste, and time is running out. November is bearing down. Bowing to the socialist-communist Democrats, globalists, Wall Street, and climate extremists, Biden is pretending the crises he has created will be solved by doubling down on his failed policies.
During his campaign, he and Bernie Sanders wrote a manifesto that predicted all of this but people weren’t paying attention. Biden embraced every word of Democratic Socialist [communist] Bernie Sanders’ economic and social agenda.
The Biden administration’s use of the Defense Production Act to support renewable energy is advancing The Green New Deal. The threat that presents to our national security, our middle class, inflation, none of it matters. He has decided this is the path he will follow and there is no turning back.
Joe Biden cancelled pipelines, and leases, drilling in ANWAR, obliterated investments in fossil fuels, and launched an oppressive, draconian onslaught of regulations. He’s in a hurry now in case they can’t eliminate Republicans with abortion, open borders, guns, and J6.
He will waste more tax dollars to complete the mission before Democrats get thrown out of office (if the election is fair). The emergency is the election.
HIS EMERGENCY FIAT
~Authorize use of the Defense Production Act (DPA) to accelerate domestic production of clean energy technologies, including solar panel parts;
~Put the full power of federal procurement to work spurring additional domestic solar manufacturing capacity by directing the development of master supply agreements, including “super preference” status; and
~Create a 24-month bridge as domestic manufacturing rapidly scales up to ensure the reliable supply of components that U.S. solar deployers need to construct clean energy projects and an electric grid for the 21st century, while reinforcing the integrity of our trade laws and processes.
FRAMED AS BOLD ACTION
HOW DO YOU JUSTIFY THE DPA FOR SOLAR PANELS THAT HELP THE CCP?
Biden waived tariffs on solar panels from four Southeast Asian nations for two years. He also invoked the Defense Production Act to spur solar panel manufacturing at home. That’s according to the White House on Monday, confirming a Reuters report. The tariff exemption applies to panels from Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. It will serve as a “bridge” while U.S. manufacturing ramps up, reports Reuters.
In an article at Townhall, Katie Pavlich said press secretary Jean-Pierre had difficulty justifying Biden’s invocation of the Defense Production act to build solar panels since the DPA is actually for real emergencies, such as wartime.
Jean-Pierre’s explanation shows Biden is using the extreme measure to push the left’s climate change agenda. AND forced transition away from oil and gas, Pavlich wrote.
How is this not a gift to the Chinese? We can’t answer that.
.@JacquiHeinrich: “On solar panels, how is this not a gift to Chinese solar manufacturers, many of whom operate with forced labor and are subsidized by the Chinese Communist Party?”
