Republican Governors Join Forces to Challenge Biden Administration’s Inept Policies

Republican Governors Join Forces to Challenge Biden Administration’s Inept Policies

15 governors launch “Operation Open Road” as they fight federal vaccine mandates.

As it becomes clear that the Biden administration will take no responsibility for any problem it creates, governors across the nation are joining forces to challenge policies and fix problems created by inept officials.

For example, 15 Republican governors, including Georgia’s Brian Kemp and Tennessee’s Bill Lee, have joined together to launch an initiative to address the continuing supply chain crisis.

The group of governors has launched Operation Open Road, which addresses transportation issues that have stalled goods nationally. There is a shortage of more than 80,000 truck drivers, which the group said is an “all-time high” for the trucking industry.

The GOP state leaders have asked President Joe Biden to lower the age requirement for commercial truck drivers from 21 years old to 18 years old. They also want Biden to suspend his private sector COVID-19 vaccine mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees, specifically in the trucking and transportation industry.

The Republican governors asked the administration to revise federal policies that hinder or limit domestic manufacturing of “essential” transportation equipment, such as trucks and tractor-trailers. The governors also want the administration to limit spending that could raise taxes or increase inflation.

The group has pointed to research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that shows a small adjustment, such as 12 minutes of additional road time per day, could significantly address industry strain and improve outcomes for a short-staffed industry.

“If we can get government out of the way, our trucking industry can safely do what it does best: move,” the governors wrote. “Our state economies are on the rise, and Operation Open Roads will help reinforce America’s economic comeback.”

The governors are also pushing back against the vaccine mandates that Team Biden is eager to implement.

U.S. Sen. James Lankford, R-Oklahoma City, also condemned the vaccine mandate in recent comments on the floor of the U.S. Senate, describing the chaos the mandate is creating in the workforce. Lankford noted that roughly 80 percent of individuals age 12 and up are now vaccinated, and many others have natural immunity because they have recovered from COVID-19.

“The administration has laid down their own law to say if Americans do not get the vaccine, those 20 percent left that haven’t got the vaccine that are 12 years old or older, if they don’t get the vaccine, this administration is going to find some way for them to lose their job, which for many people will also mean lose their insurance, lose their pension, and sometimes lose their home,” Lankford said. “But the President’s response is, ‘I don’t care.’”

There is now a standoff between Oklahoma’s governor and the Pentagon over a coronavirus vaccine mandate for troops.

Oklahoma’s newly appointed adjutant general for the National Guard, Brig. Gen. Thomas H. Mancino, announced last week on behalf of Gov. Kevin Stitt that guardsmen in the state would not be required to get a Covid-19 vaccine. The policy defies a Pentagon directive issued in August that makes vaccination mandatory for all troops, including the National Guard, by deadlines set by each service branch.

“The order I issued came directly from the governor. That is the lawful order to the men and women of the Oklahoma National Guard,” General Mancino said in an interview, adding that he had been vaccinated.

Pentagon officials said on Wednesday that failure to follow “valid medical readiness requirements” could “jeopardize” the status of service members, who could face dismissal or other punishment.

As Biden’s poll numbers continue to tank, more governors may be willing to join the New Resistance.

15 governors isn’t bad, provided they don’t wimp out when they get pushback.

I’m glad to see governors as the new front for the re-resistance. We may or may not have an larger a proportion of reliable governors than we do reliable congressmen… but at least governors can take concrete action without having to play “mother, may I” with a majority of their peers.

    If these Rhinos really wanted to help the Trucking Industry they’d be fighting against the the Federal Regulations going into effect this February Federalizing ALL the CDL Schools, making those only State Sanctioned illegal overnight, increasing the training time to obtain a CDL by requiring “Trucking Theory” courses & thereby increasing the overall time & cost to obtain a CDL. Instead, they pull a bait & switch solution to dupe ignorant schmucks that will only create a larger problem of making those Truckers resisting the Covax Mandate even more expendable, put a bunch of people on the road who have even less driving experience – remember 18 yr/olds have only had their drivers licenses for TWO YEARS. Then when Trucking accidents soar these SAME Rhinos will be using those accident statistics to argue for the implementation of Ai trucks, putting Millions of Truckers out of work.

      “by requiring “Trucking Theory” courses”

      Wait until they offer the “Trucking Studies” courses.

      “White Lines Matter”
      “Intersectionalism And Yellow Traffic Signals”
      “Tranny Phobia: Does Your Truck Identify as a Motorhome?”
      “A Feminist History: Contributions of The Lot Lizard.”

      “Federalization of trucking schools” – who has got the contract for that and did the Big Guy get 10%?
      It’s the “fundamental transformation of America” that Obama was always talking about, starting with LBJ taking over the welfare process and continuing right up to today.

    We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately.

      The problem is this: if we re-take Congress, are we going to hand it over again to McConnell and the likes of “Boehner II’ (McCarthy)?

      HELL NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      OUT with the establishment/rino garbage!

It’s almost as if China Joe and his Commissars are trying to strangle the economy for some nefarious reason.

These are not “problems created by inept officials.” These are effects created by enemies of the USA. These officials may be inept, but that is irrelevant. They are carrying out their assignments to create problems. Providing cover for them through mislabeling behavior helps to ensure responses are ineffective. These are deliberate attacks. They are planned as part of a multifront war against the USA. The people we see are puppets. They are paper soldiers. This is all part of a well planned attack by smart people who we do not see, Always respect your enemy but do not fear him.

Now all they need do is join forces with the newly freed Britney Spears and the republic will be saved.

It’s not ineptitude, it’s malice.

“Asking” this fool to do anything to help is futile. First, he’s senile and demented, so he can’t think rationally. Second, he’s a Democrat, so he can’t think rationally. Third, he doesn’t WANT to help. Fourth, he’s a puppet controlled by a cabal of America-hating Marxists who are in what they believe is the final push of implementing the Cloward-Piven strategy.

Screw them all. Just nullify the Feds by ignoring their rules.

    Screw them all. Just nullify the Feds by ignoring their rules.

    Better yet, pass laws that specifically nullify the Feds rules and regulations (they ain’t real laws in any case) and give the middle finger salute to the Biden regime.

    Why don’t these governors join with DeSantis and BAN the federal vaccine edicts outright? So they sign a letter and deliver it with a stompy-footed finger wagging. And that execrable Kemp? He signed it too!

    These guys are governors! Do something… like govern! “Hell no! We won’t comply!”

But at least we don’t have an Orange Man making mean tweets on Twitter®, right? Right?!??

    Glenn Beck is still trying to come up with something to rub on his face to make fun of Biden like he did when he used cheetos for Trump. Unfortunately Joe Biden is just so intelligent and professional that poor Glenn just can’t think of anything.to make fun of.

Regarding AI Big Rigs; Werner, Swift, Knight Transport, Bison & Mesilla have in total invested over a billion dollars to have AI trucks on the road by 2024.

So, these Rhino (Fake Republicans) are just doing their part to create a problem to implement a desired solution & aid their fellow Globalist Communist Democrats agenda of ushering in the Great (Bolshevik) Reset.

Meh. Sounds like another revival of Republican Failure Theater.

– Recall that every single Biden* nominee (save one) sent to the Senate for confirmation has gotten at least a half dozen or more Republican votes. The only Biden* nominees that tanked were done in by Communist senators.
– Obamacare. ‘Nuff said.
– House and Senate GOP members bailed out Biden* and his “stimulus” bill when it was headed for defeat.
– When confronted with Third World-style vote counting and blatant violations of state election laws last November, Republican state legislators/governors in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, and Arizona looked the other way.
– Only 15 GOP governors signed onto this. So where are the rest (the newly elected Republican governor of Virginia is conspicuously absent from the list), not to mention potential GOP gubernatorial candidates? For every GOP Governor DeSantis, I will match you a do-nothing GOP Governor Baker.

    Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi thank you for helping them with operation demoralize from the bottom of their heart. With some more people like you telling Republicans not to bother with their side they are sure they could keep congress.

Fuck joe biden* and his cadre don’t care. They’re only concern is stealing as much as they can and passing laws that are hard to repeal (spineless repubs).
They see losing a few of the cadre at election time is worth the steal and the cadre know know they will get acushy job if they lose.
