OPINION: Biden’s Climate agenda is a power grab that will destroy American capitalism

President Joe Biden and his Vice President Kamala Harris were exalted by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, a self-proclaimed Democrat socialist, as the most progressive administration in White House history. Sanders was right. In Biden’s first weeks he’s signed 17 executive orders, turning over many of President Donald Trump’s policies on their heads. So-called environmental protection and climate policies have been at the forefront.

Can you imagine what changes are in store in the next four years? Mark my words, combating climate change will be the Biden administration’s religion, which his senior officials will use to usher in both national, economic and societal change. It’s exactly what Biden’s biggest donors and supporters are now pushing for and by the way, reminding him that they hold the purse strings. These changes are meant more to protect their own pocketbooks and push their global policy agendas.

Biden’s economic climate agenda is a power grab that will destroy American capitalism. Remember, New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who was highly criticized for her Green New Deal proposal, co-chairs Biden’s environmental task force. Mind you, she has no scientific background or education on the subject. She’s an activist. Biden’s environmental climate change plan is really nothing more than a multi-trillion-dollar plan for the government to take over institutions and reshape the U.S. economy.

This is not about the environment. It is a way to change the system by cloaking it in a cause. Biden has already made this push perfectly clear.

He’s already banned the Keystone XL pipeline. This move has left other oil and energy companies nervous that there will be more bans in the future leading to thousands of lost jobs and failed alleged green friendly projects like the solar powered project by the failed company Solyndra, which wasted hundreds of millions in federal funds.

Just think about it, more than 185,000 people are employed by the coal industry and more than 1.5 million in oil and gas industries in America. Can you imagine what these other companies are thinking? What the employees of these companies are thinking?

Will they be the next Keystone XL pipeline victims?

Millions of jobs will be on the line if Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos, actor Leonardo DiCaprio, among others, have their way.

Biden is being called by leftist elitists who supported his campaign to make his legacy that of the ‘climate president.’ In a letter signed Sunday by big tech giants, including Bezos, actors, like DiCaprio, actress Rosanna Arquette and a multitude of activists, including Latricia Adams, Founder of Black Millennials for Flint are begging Biden to take on the role.

Biden is getting a lesson on how far the “progressively rich” who supported his campaign beyond just financial want him to support their vision of the future.

He’s not going to be like Trump, who touted an America first policy agenda. Biden will put China, climate change and other global issues first. He will use his allies in big tech to ensure that the messages his administration wants to be pushed are the narrative on social media. In America, we’ve already seen how people are silenced when they question the narrative of the administration or the mainstream media outlets.

Here’s some of the letter signed by some of Biden’s wealthiest supporters and posted online.

“You can be remembered as the “climate president” who led humanity away from the cliff’s edge,” the letter signed by nBiden supporters and donors said. “You can transform the world’s energy systems from fossil fuels to clean energy, while also creating an abundance of jobs, reducing harmful pollution, and tackling economic, racial, and health inequality in the process.”

“Choosing to take bold leadership will allow us to build back better and to build forward to a new world we can create together,” the letter stated. “By rejoining the Paris Agreement on day one, you have moved the United States in the right direction. But, as you have stated, it is simply not enough, and we must “do all we possibly can.”

Trump was right in pulling from the Paris Accord. The accord does little for the United States and instead allows China to continue it’s massive pollution of its nation and the planet.

Under the Paris Accord, the United States would be forced to reduce carbon emissions by 2025 to at least 28%. What would happen to Americans? Well, we already have one of the lowest carbon emissions on the planet but reducing the emissions to at least 28% would mean the average family’s electricity would go up substantially.

The Chinese Communist Party is not required to do much than what they are already doing, as stated in a 2019 New York Times opinion piece, “What China is pledging to do here is not a lot different from what China’s policies are on track to deliver.”

It’s simple. The climate gurus want you to believe that the policy changes they are asking the Biden Administration to make are for the betterment of the planet. This is not the case, because these policies are mainly being used to take more economic control from businesses, increasing regulations and stifling economic growth and ingenuity.

Moreover, we’re seeing fundamental changes in our nation that exceed what our Founding Father’s intended for individual liberty and freedom to flourish.

What we are witnessing, with the excuse and assistance of the Climate Change policies, is an intrusive government with an overreach that shreds the values established in our Constitution.

Illegal migrants refuse to leave Denver encampments, make demands of city including ‘fresh, culturally appropriate’ food and free lawyers

A group of illegal immigrants in Denver is not only refusing to leave encampments, but also have the audacity to take no actions until the city meets its demands. The migrants were organized enough to publish a document with 13 specific demands before they “acquiesce to Denver Human Services’ request to leave the encampments and move to more permanent shelters funded by the city” reports Fox News.

Demands were made following the Denver government obtaining a petition to have the migrants moved, according to the outlet. The Denver mayor has been under pressure from the city’s ongoing migrant crisis, making headlines and receiving stiff backlash earlier this year for proposing budget cuts to the city’s government, including cuts to the city’s police force, to fund more money for dealing with the city’s migrant crisis.

The list of demands was sent to Mayor Mike Johnston and included requests for provisions of “fresh, culturally appropriate” food, no time limits on showers and free immigration lawyers, the outlet reported. Further details of the demands read, “Migrants will cook their own food with fresh, culturally appropriate ingredients provided by the City instead of premade meals – rice, chicken, flour, oil, butter, tomatoes, onions, etc… Shower access will be available without time limits & can be accessed whenever… Medical professional visits will happen regularly & referrals/connections for specialty care will be made as needed.”

The migrants also insisted they get “connection to employment support, including work permit applications for those who qualify,” as well as “Consultations for each person/family with a free immigration lawyer.” The migrants insisted that if these are not met, they will not leave their tent community.

“At the end of the day, what we do not want is families on the streets of Denver,” Jon Ewing, a spokesman for Denver Human Services, told Fox 31.

The current encampment is situated “near train tracks and under a bridge,” Fox 31 noted, adding that it has been there for the last couple of weeks.

Ewing told Fox 31 the city just wants “to get families to leave that camp and come inside,” noting its offer will give migrants “three square meals a day” and the freedom to cook.

He also said the government is willing to work with people to compromise and help them figure out what kind of assistance they qualify for.

Ultimately, Ewing said, the city wants to work with migrants to determine, “What might be something that is a feasible path for you to success that is not staying on the streets of Denver?”
