Joe Biden is about to make Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s day with this big power grab
Joe Biden has managed to alienate both the Right and the Left.
But Biden’s handlers have a new plan.
And now Joe Biden is about to make Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s day with this big power grab.
Joe Biden’s approval rating plunged to 33 percent.
A President cannot fall that low unless they lose support from a chunk of their base.
Joe Biden is looking to shore up his support among the Left by floating the idea of declaring a national emergency to combat so-called “climate change.”
Biden’s handlers dreamed up the illegal attempt to usurp the power of Congress to fight so-called “climate change” after West Virginia Democrat Senator Joe Manchin tanked the President’s attempt to ram a $3.5 trillion tax-and-spend bill through the Senate that would have imposed large portions of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal on the country.
White House officials continue to falsely pump up the so-called “climate crisis” as a front to impose socialism on America.
“The President made clear that if the Senate doesn’t act to tackle the climate crisis and strengthen our domestic clean energy industry, he will,” a White House official speaking on the condition of anonymity told the Washington Post. “We are considering all options and no decision has been made.”
White House administration economic advisor Jared Bernstein claimed Biden could take drastic action on a so-called “climate emergency.”
“I think realistically there is a lot he can do, and there is a lot he will do,” Bernstein told the Washington Post.
The Washington Post then detailed some of the actions Biden could take under a national emergency that could continue the Left’s war on American energy.
“Some climate activists have urged the White House in recent months to deploy an emergency declaration to maximum effect, arguing that it would allow the President to halt crude oil exports, limit oil and gas drilling in federal waters, and direct agencies including the Federal Emergency Management Agency to boost renewable-energy sources,” the Washington Post reported.
But high gas prices have already sapped Joe Biden’s approval ratings.
If Joe Biden declares a national emergency to combat so-called “climate change” and further restricts oil and natural gas production, prices will only shoot higher.
And while Biden’s action would please Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and the other socialists, it would only drive Independents even further from the Democrat Party.
