America Was Energy Independent For First Time In 70 Years, Until Biden/Democrats Stole Election

The party of treason are dismantling America brick by bloody brick. And the media asses braying for Biden — we have been destroyed from within.

America Was Energy Independent For First Time In 70 Years, Until Biden Came – Now He Won’t Talk

By BlabberBuzz | Monday, 01 February 2021 23:00

Senate Republicans claim they have been denied their requests to meet with Joe Biden over climate policies they say threaten “thousands of good-paying jobs.”

Senators, led by Dan Sullivan of Alaska and Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, had sought the meeting after Biden canceled a permit for the Keystone XL pipeline and ordered a pause in the sale of new oil and gas leases on federal land. He additionally ordered agencies to review dozens of Trump administration regulations and promised “ambitious” new limits on greenhouse gas emissions from automobiles.

On Friday, Sens. Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma and Steve Daines of Montana wrote on Twitter the White House had refused the request.

“Considering the effects their radical war on fossil fuels will have on nearly half the country, it is clear Oklahoma jobs are not the priority they should be,” Inhofe tweeted.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed Friday no meeting was planned, though she didn’t explicitly rule one out. Biden is committed to “working and engaging with Democrats and Republicans to address the crises we’re facing, including climate,” Psaki said.

A spokesman for Sullivan, who led the meeting request, said the senator had not received a direct response from the White House.

The senators, many from oil-rich states, proclaim Biden’s early climate and energy decisions run counter to his Inauguration Day promise of unity and his “stated goal of creating good-paying jobs,” particularly for workers in the energy industry.

“You’ve threatened middle-class jobs in the midst of an economy challenged by the pandemic, with no hope in the near future for these workers and their families,” the senators said in a letter to Biden.

Biden’s climate policies have also drawn a skeptical eye from elected Democrats, including the likes of governors of New Mexico and Louisiana, where oil drilling is a prime source of revenue.

New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said she would be “working with the federal administration to make sure New Mexico is protected and secure,” amid Biden’s executive actions.

And Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards noted the state was “concerned” about any moratorium affecting the Gulf of Mexico.

Biden has cast the fight against climate change as an economic opportunity, with the promise to unleash jobs installing solar panels, building wind turbines and weatherizing homes, though the moves will have inevitable effects on oil workers and coal miners.

Republican senators balked at such claims in their meeting request, saying it’s little comfort to workers building pipelines and drilling wells today. “Industries which will create new ‘green jobs’ that can replace the ones lost are still years away from maturing, and provide no immediate hope for our workers,” they said.

“We hope you will convey our sincere disdain for these orders and do everything within your power to protect the energy industry of New Mexico and the thousands of workers who are being negatively impacted,” Dale Janway, the mayor of Carlsbad, New Mexico, said in a letter Thursday to members of the state’s congressional delegation.

Biden’s climate order HALTING drilling on federal lands KILLS 58K jobs

The Biden Administration’s assault on the energy industry is moving at lightning speed. What a disaster. President Trump warned everyone that this would happen if Joe Biden was elected POTUS.

Beijing Biden administration is a wrecking ball to America. Period. Whoever voted for these destroyers is guilty of “insurrection.”

Biden’s climate order halting drilling on federal lands will kill 58K jobs, oil group warns

By Fox News, January 28, 2021

Kathleen Sgamma, president of the Western Energy Alliance, argued on Thursday that President Biden’s order to halt drilling on federal lands will kill 58,700 jobs in eight states in the West, “where over 97% of the federal production is found.”

Sgamma made the argument on “Fox & Friends” the morning after Biden announced his executive order which the president said, “directs the secretary of the interior to stop issuing new oil and gas leases on public lands and offshore waters.”

“We are going to start properly manage lands and waterways in ways that allow us to protect, preserve the full value that they provide for us for future generations,” President Biden added.

On Wednesday Western Energy Alliance, which represents 200 oil and natural gas companies, filed a lawsuit challenging Biden’s executive order banning oil and natural gas leasing on federal public lands, according to a news release.

The release cited the complaint which, “challenges Biden’s order as exceeding presidential authority and constituting a violation of the Mineral Leasing Act, National Environmental Policy Act, and the Federal Lands Policy and Management Act.”

Sgamma pointed to a study from the American Petroleum Industry, which she noted revealed “about 10.3 million people directly or indirectly derive their wages and income from the oil and natural gas industry.”

She noted that the impact of President Biden’s executive order to halt drilling on federal lands would be “felt the most” in the West, “where there is about 700 million acres of federal land,” stressing that she was referring to “working landscapes in the west that are owned and managed by the federal government.”

She noted that Yosemite National Park and Yellowstone National Park were excluded because they are “protected areas.”

Biden signed a total of 17 executive orders within minutes of entering the Oval Office for the first time on Wednesday. The orders reversed a number of Trump administration policies and covered areas Biden identified as his priorities on the campaign trail, including climate change.

In addition to temporarily suspending oil and gas permits on federal lands and waters, Biden halted the Keystone XL oil pipeline project in the series of orders aimed at tamping down the U.S. fossil fuel industry and combating climate change.

In remarks made by Biden on Wednesday before signing executive actions on tackling climate change, the president pointed to “a key plank” of his Build Back Better Recovery Plan, which he noted “is building a modern, resilient climate infrastructure and clean energy future that will create millions of good-paying union jobs.”

“This notion that killing oil and natural gas is suddenly going to create jobs elsewhere is just a false one,” Sgamma said.

“The energy we use in the United States, over 70% of it comes from oil and natural gas so people still need to drive their cars, they need to heat their homes, they need to turn on the switch and have reliable electricity 24/7,” she continued.

John Kerry Says Of Fired Energy Workers ‘Let Them Make Solar Panels’

We should not be surprised by these egregious statements from John Kerry. Kerry is one of the most detestable politicians we have ever seen. He was an awful secretary of state. And he will cause significant economic damage to America as President Biden’s climate czar.

America has no greater enemy than the Democrat party of treason and destruction.

THIS IS REAL: John Kerry Says Fired Energy Workers Can Simply ‘Go Make Solar Panels’

By Sean Hannity, January 27, 2021

White House Climate Czar John Kerry spoke with reporters during a daily press briefing Wednesday; telling recently fired energy workers they can simply “go build solar panels” under the Biden administration.

“There are people who will hear this message that they will see an end to their livelihoods. What do you say to them?” asked on reporter. “What is your message to them right now?”

“What President Biden wants to do is make sure that those folks have better choices… That they can be the people to go to work to make the solar panels,” said Kerry.

“The same people can do those jobs!” he added.

BIDEN’S FOLLY: Trying to Control the Weather [a.k.a. Climate]

“Climate is what we expect, weather is what we get.” – Mark Twain

“Climate change is sometimes misunderstood as being about changes in the weather. In reality it is about changes in our very way of life.” – Paul Polman

“’Climate change’ gives the Left a ‘moral’ code, a kind of pseudo religion, without the reasoning that animates true religion.” – Hadley Arkes


Climate change is about control of every aspect of our lives, liberties and pursuit of happiness.

I have learned three things about the weather (a.k.a. climate):

  1. The weather/climate changes.
  2. These changes in the weather/climate are cyclical natural cycles (eg. summer, fall, winter, spring).
  3. There is absolutely nothing mankind can do to change these natural cycles.

Biden’s Climate Change Folly

It appears that Biden has taken a bite of the climate change apple. He wants to immediately stop everything we do in our lives in order to “save the planet” from ourselves.

Among the evil things that we Americans do is:

  1. Drive cars powered by gasoline or diesel engines.
  2. Heat our homes with oil, natural gas and electricity from power plants fueled by natural gas, oil, coal and nuclear reactors.
  3. Buy plastic products, which are made from oil.
  4. Use power sources other than wind and solar.
  5. Believe that no-one can change the weather/climate by government edict.

In a National Review column Biden’s Climate-Change Folly wrote:

The “C” in Climate Stands for Control

If you want to take control of any culture you must have a crisis. For Democrats and Biden that crisis is climate change. In a column titled Scapegoating “White Christians” for Climate Change Jerry Newcomb wrote:

California, Oregon, and Washington State are burning—and it’s all the fault of “white Christians.” So says a professor at Oregon State University because “white Christians” are “science-deniers” who don’t believe in catastrophic man-made global warming.

White Christians? How is blaming white Christians science?

Conclusion

The truth is that climate change is neither catastrophic nor man-made.

Rather is is mankind that has created ways to stop flooding, cull forests to reduce the possibility of massive fires, invented ways to provide cheap and reliable power that has taken many individuals and nations out of poverty.

Energy is key to any healthy society. Take away cheap and reliable energy and you have what we are seeing in California’s brown outs.

Killing the energy industry is killing American jobs and making American dependent on either unreliable power sources (wind and solar) or making us energy dependent on other nations like those in the Middle East.

Cheap reliable American power is a national security imperative.

Take away our energy and you drain the life blood of our economy and people.

Illegitimate ‘President’ Biden to STOP oil and gas sales on public lands

EVERY action of the fraudulent administration is hostile to Americans.

Biden issues 60 day moratorium on federal land drilling – despite saying he would NEVER ban fracking – after killing thousands of jobs by canceling the $9BN Keystone XL pipeline

  • The Biden administration is expected to announce a temporary suspension of new oil and gas leasing on U.S. federal lands and waters on Wednesday
  • President Joe Biden will make the announcement as part of a second batch of executive orders aimed at combating climate change
  • The policy is an abrupt about-face from his predecessor Donald Trump who sought to maximize the country’s oil, gas and coal output
  • Biden had vowed to ban new federal oil and gas drilling during his campaign for the White House
  • The orders will impact large swathes of acreage onshore in mostly Western states, as well as offshore drilling acreage located mainly in the Gulf of Mexico
  • It could lead to the loss of 2.8 million jobs directly linked to the industries

By Associated Press and James Gordon For Dailymail.com, 26 January 2021

President Joe Biden is set to announce a wide-ranging moratorium on new oil and gas leasing on U.S. lands and waters, as his administration moves quickly to reverse Trump administration policies on energy and the environment and address climate change – but it will also lead to the loss of tens of thousands of jobs.

Two people with knowledge of Biden´s plans outlined the proposed moratorium, which will be announced Wednesday. They asked not to be identified because the plan has not been made been public; some details remain in flux.

The move follows a 60-day suspension of new drilling permits for U.S. lands and waters announced last week and follows Biden´s campaign pledge to halt new drilling on federally controlled land and water as part of his plan to address climate change.

The Biden administration is expected to announce a temporary suspension of new oil and gas leasing on U.S. federal lands and waters on Wednesday

The moratorium is intended to allow time for officials to review the impact of oil and gas drilling on the environment and climate.

Environmental groups hailed the expected moratorium as the kind of urgent action needed to slow climate change.

‘The fossil fuel industry has inflicted tremendous damage on the planet. The administration´s review, if done correctly, will show that filthy fracking and drilling must end for good, everywhere,’ said Kierán Suckling, executive director at the Center for Biological Diversity, an environmental group that has pushed for the drilling pause.

Oil industry groups, however, slammed the move, saying Biden had already eliminated thousands of oil and gas jobs by killing the Keystone XL oil pipeline on his first day in office.

President Joe Biden will make the announcement as part of a second batch of executive orders aimed at combating climate change

‘This is just the start. It will get worse,’ said Brook Simmons, president of the Petroleum Alliance of Oklahoma. ‘Meanwhile, the laws of physics, chemistry and supply and demand remain in effect. Oil and natural gas prices are going up, and so will home heating bills, consumer prices and fuel costs.’

‘In the first couple of days of the new administration, they are taking actions that will harm the economy and cost Americans their jobs,’ said Frank Macchiarola, a senior vice president of policy for the American Petroleum Institute. ‘We’re concerned, and everyone in the country should be concerned.’

A 2017 report produced by the American Petroleum Institute (API), a trade and lobbying association, suggests nearly 2.8 million jobs are directly linked to fossil fuels with a further 5.3 million in sectors sustained by the spending of oil and gas companies.

Expert: Biden Actions Against American Oil, Gas Energy Production Could Kill as Many as 1 Million Jobs

Watch the video from Ezra Levant below. Americans who work in the energy industry are in for the fight of their lives over the next four years. President Trump warned us that Joe Biden would relentlessly attack the energy industry if elected POTUS, because of the voting power that the far-Left environmentalists have in the Democrat Party. Joe Biden even admitted in the second presidential debate, that he would transition America from oil (here) if elected POTUS. Sadly, not enough Americans listened to Joe Biden’s statements. How can any rational American who works in the energy sector vote for this?

Expert: Biden Actions Against American Oil, Gas Energy Production Could Kill as Many as 1 Million Jobs

By Breitbart, January 24, 2021

Frank Macchiarola, senior vice president of Policy, Economics and Regulatory Affairs at the American Petroleum Institute (API), said in an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Saturday with host Matt Boyle that if President Joe Biden puts a permanent ban on oil and gas development on federal waters and land, it could cost 1 million American jobs.

Boyle asked Macchiarola about the significance of Biden revoking the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline and putting a 60-day pause on federal land leasing in his first days in office.

“I think the first four days of the Biden Administration have given a clear picture of what the next four years could look like,” he said. “President Biden comes into office with a real economic headwind and a difficult labor market but at the same time he inherited an energy [landscape] that’s stronger because of America’s shale revolution.”

“We’ve produced lower household energy costs as a result of U.S. energy and less reliance on foreign energy sources,” Macchiarola added.

“The president has a choice to make: He can maintain U.S. leadership and maintain and support our economic recovery with American energy or he can pursue policies that destroy jobs and at the same time increase energy imports,” he further asserted.

“The first few days should concern all Americans because the administration is clearly taking actions that are going to harm the economy and cost Americans jobs,” Macchiarola said.

As Breitbart News reported, shutting down the Keystone XL pipeline will cost 11,000 jobs directly and as many as 60,000 indirect jobs.

The federal ban presents an even more staggering number, Macchiarola asserted.

“The full scale ban of development on federal lands you can bet the impact could be up to a million jobs in the United States,” he said.

The Keystone decision also affects our relationship with Canada and the U.S. economy.

“Two of the major components of the inauguration address and of the priorities of the new administration, No. 1 is rebuilding alliances and No. 2 strengthening our economy,” Macchiarola said. “With this decision that heads in the opposite direction on both of those priorities.”

It could also cost the U.S. $2 billion in wages, he said.

LET THEM EAT CAKE: Buttigieg Says Tens of Thousands Of Keystone Workers Need to Get ‘Different’ Union Jobs

Terrible.

Every Democrat action is an attack on Americans. Every action is anti-American.

Buttigieg acknowledges Keystone workers may need to get ‘different’ union jobs

By Fox News, January 21, 2021

Transportation Secretary nominee Pete Buttigieg claimed Thursday that President Biden‘s decision to block the Keystone XL Pipeline is part of a broader plan that will end up being a net positive for employment, despite union outrage based on the loss of more than a thousand jobs.

Biden revoked a necessary cross-border permit for the pipeline in an executive order on Wednesday, one of more than a dozen actions he took during his first hours in office. Construction on the project had stopped earlier in the day in anticipation of the move.

“Environmental ideologues have now prevailed, and over a thousand union men and women have been terminated from employment on the project,” North America’s Building Trades Unions said in a statement following Biden’s action.

Asked about this at his confirmation hearing by Sen. Dan Sullivan, R-Alaska, Buttigieg was optimistic that these losses will be offset by new positions created as the new administration shifts towards climate-conscious goals.

“I believe that the president’s climate vision will create more jobs on that,” the former mayor of South Bend, Ind. said. “And I think it’s going to be very important to work with him and work with Congress to make sure that we can deliver on that promise too. That on that, more good-paying union jobs will be created in the context of the climate and infrastructure work that we have before us than has been impacted by other decisions.”

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, pressed Buttigieg on what this actually means.

“So for those workers, the answer is somebody else will get a job?” Cruz asked.

“The answer is we are very eager to see those workers continue to be employed in good-paying union jobs, even if they might be different ones,” Buttigieg said.

The Keystone XL Pipeline project was initially proposed in 2008 and has volleyed back and forth as the fossil fuel and industry and climate activists battle over energy policies. President Barack Obama rejected the project in 2015, but President Donald Trump gave it the green light shortly into his tenure in the Oval Office.

Beijing Biden to KILL Keystone XL Pipeline

America didn’t vote for this. Biden’s energy polices will cripple the U.S. energy sector.

The $9 billion project, which would move up to 830,000 barrels of crude oil daily from the province of Alberta to Nebraska, has been delayed by legal issues.

In a lengthy statement posted to Twitter, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said he was “deeply concerned” by the report, arguing that the move would “kill jobs on both sides of the border, weaken the critically important Canada-U.S. relationship, and undermine U.S. national security by making the United States more dependent on OPEC oil imports in the future.”

He also warned that Alberta would work with TC Energy Corp. to use “all legal avenues available to protect its interest in the project.”

Biden to end Keystone XL pipeline early on: source

Posted January 17, 2021

U.S. President-elect Joe Biden is planning to cancel the permit for the $9 billion Keystone XL pipeline project as one of his first acts in office, and perhaps as soon as his first day, according to a source familiar with his thinking.

VIDEO: Bill Gates Carbon Hypocrisy

Bill Gates wants you to pare down your over-the-top lifestyle.

How about we all agree to not let our “carbon footprints” exceed his.

CFACT’s Marc Morano exposed Gates’s hypocrisy on Fox and Friends:

“Bill Gates was listed in 2019 as the number one carbon footprint of all the celebrities. He beat Al Gore, Jennifer Lopez. He beat Bernie Sanders and a bunch of others [including] Harrison Ford. He came out number one, Bill Gates. He has a new book coming out about the climate crisis; what we can all do. He spoke to the World Economic Forum and claimed we have to change every aspect of our lives to fight global warming but Bill Gates is not willing to do it. The last estimate in 2010 he paid $30,000 a month in his electricity bill at his home. Since he…recently bought a 43 million-dollar oceanfront property, [he’s] not very worried about sea-level rise apparently.”

Marc reports that Gates and the rest of the climate elite want us to refrain from flying unless we can come up with a “morally justifiable” reason to do so.  Of course they expect their moral justification travel visas to be permanently stamped.

“Gates just said we need to continue lockdowns on bars, restaurants, small businesses. Meanwhile, the billionaire class is reaping benefits of lockdowns — his pals from Amazon, Walmart, all other big box stores. What is interesting [is that] climate activists are calling for flying only when it is ‘morally justifiable’ as the new normal post-pandemic. Bill Gates is in on that. He is saying, well business travel – he expects a 50% reduction. So now if you want to fly commercial, if you’re not Bill Gates or Leonardo DiCaprio or Al Gore, you need to come up with a ‘morally justifiable’ reason. This is what the climate activists are doing. Crushing the airline industry, by boosting private planes. They’re living one way for themselves and imposing…another set of austerity on the rest of us.”

Maybe Bill Gates and the rest of the carbon elite will shock us all someday and lead by example.

Don’t hold your (CO2-laden) breath.

CFACT “Green New Wheel” teaches facts at TPUSA conference

America’s high school and college students are continually battered with misinformation from celebrities, “news” organizations, and social media.

Amid the COVID lockdowns and election controversies, this Left-wing indoctrination is at an all-time high.

That’s why CFACT cosponsored Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit (SAS) in West Palm Beach, FL, this past week – to reach young people directly with facts, not hysteria.

CFACT debuted the “Green New Wheel” table game; an actual, spin-able wheel that CFACT developed to engage the public on the folly behind the Green New Deal.

It “spun up” quite the buzz among hundreds of students, the media, and even a celebrity or two, all while operating under the COVID restrictions put in place by county officials for the conference.

Kirk Cameron, the Christian actor and movie star, and Alex Clark, host of TPUSA’s “POPlitics” show, both took a spin. Unfortunately for Ms. Clark, she landed on Joe Biden and the Green New Deal, which meant she lost. Mr. Cameron, however, landed on free market energy, which gave him the chance at a prize.

Chandler Wysocki, a freshman at the Ohio State University, was very enthusiastic about CFACT’s message after spinning the Green New Wheel. “I love the message, and I am really looking forward to getting plugged in to the CFACT chapter on campus,” Chandler said. “There are tons of events I think we can do. A hike and litter clean up would be great to show that we as conservatives care about the environment, despite what the Left says about us.”

CFACT’s mission also attracted the attention of national media. Both CFACT’s Houser and Bob Knee, CFACT’s National Field Coordinator, were interviewed by America’s Voice TV about their mission on college campuses. Additionally, Bob sat down with Cindy Drukier, host of The Nation Speaks, a news program with NTD.com, to discuss the growing threat of China to freedom. Bob explained how China is using environmental issues as a political chess piece to gain influence and power on the world stage.

“With the Paris Climate Accord specifically, the Chinese Communist Party is using that agreement to gain a serious edge economically,” Knee explained. “In that deal the West has to slash emissions, but China gets to keep building as many coal plants as they want. It’s ridiculous.

In addition to CFACT’s presence, there were many big-name speakers who took the stage at the Summit, including Tucker Carlson, Governor Kristi Noem, Dinesh D’Souza, Jude Jeanine Pirro, and more.

“These students were fired up. They love freedom, and they understand that it is capitalism, not socialism that brings prosperity and helps the environment,” Houser said. “Look for big things from these new CFACT activists next semester and beyond.”

Capitalist Surrender

American business is terrified of the Greens.

Green / climate pressure groups love to spread the myth that corporations spend vast sums to block their agenda.

The opposite is true.  When Greens attack, business surrenders… and hands over billions in payoffs.

Jeff Bezos built Amazon into a global powerhouse and became the world’s richest man.  Bezos wants Amazon’s astounding growth to go on unimpeded, so he’s trying to massively buy the Left off.  Senior policy analyst Bonner Cohen reports at CFACT.org:

Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon and owner of the Washington Post, has announced that he is giving $793 million to 16 environmental groups to fight climate change and undertake other activities to save the planet. The largess comes from Bezos’s Earth Fund and is, he says, “just the beginning of my $10 billion commitment to fund scientists, activists, NGOs, and others.”

More than half of the donations are going to established, already well-funded green groups, with $100 million grants each going to the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC), the Nature Conservancy (TNC), the World Resources Institute (WRI), and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF).

That’s right.  Bezos is paying billions to the most radical left-wing Greens to use to undo the very free market prosperity that made Amazon possible.

What a craven bargain Bezos has made.

As Winston Churchill said, “An appeaser Is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.”

Biden Putting His Left Foot Forward

Joe Biden is assembling an army of radical bureaucrats and no one’s freedom is safe.

In the waning days of the Obama Administration, the 44th President’s legion of anti-capitalist, global warming, anti-energy zealots burrowed into our federal service and decamped for big salaries at left-wing nonprofits.

They’re baaack!

Gina McCarthy did massive economic damage as Obama’s EPA Administrator and John Kerry weakened American interests across the board as Secretary of State.  Biden just named McCarthy his national climate adviser and Kerry, his international climate envoy.

Peter Murphy details Biden’s growing list of radicals at CFACT.org:

Mr. Biden did announce this week cabinet appointments that will implement climate policy overseen by Ms. McCarthy. They include Jennifer Granholm for Secretary of Energy, who was Michigan Governor and champion of “renewable” solar and wind energy; and Michael Regan for the Environmental Protection Agency, an African American who is the Secretary of the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality and espouses “environmental justice” for communities of color. The president-elect is expected to name Congresswoman Deb Haaland of New Mexico for Secretary of the Interior, who is opposed to decades long energy development on federal lands.

Gabriella Hoffman focuses in on Biden’s pick for Interior, the radical Deb Haaland:

Haaland’s positions on critical conservation and environmental issues would alienate most Americans: Haaland is an original Green New Deal backer and is endorsed by the Sunrise Movement. She also supports restoring the size of the controversial Bears Ears National Monument in Utah, opposes Endangered Species Act reforms, and endorses the “30 by 30” plan via House Resolution 835.

Top level appointments are just the tip of the iceberg.  For every high profile radical who’s name you see in the news, there are thousands who’s names and faces remain largely unseen by the average American.  They are united in their belief that the problem with America is that we have far too much much of that pesky individual freedom.  They know better, and are prepared to substitute their judgment for ours through the bleak power of regulation.

America has at long last achieved energy independence.  Through the efficiency of free markets, we stand first in energy production, while simultaneously first in emissions reductions (if that’s your thing).  We have pushed back against anti-competitive mercantilism abroad and our manufacturers are rebounding and ready to compete.  We have returned Americans to space on American rockets.  We are defeating a global pandemic and creating better lives and opportunities for everyone.

Our assembling bureaucratic masters loathe all that and are prepared to stop it.

Joe Biden positioned himself for president by proclaiming he was a mainstream candidate who was not part of the radicalism possessing his party.

In the days ahead, judge Biden not by what he says, but by whom he appoints.
