A desperate move by Team Biden, which is bitterly clinging to its remaining supporters as Democrats appear to be looking for palatable alternatives for the 2024 presidential campaign.
With an Oct. 1 shutdown looming, House Republican leaders failed to pass their $826-billion defense bill for a third time in two weeks. Democrats object to its anti-diversity and anti-abortion-travel measures & GOP conservatives who voted against it want deeper cuts in the whole federal budget.
The latest setback on Thursday leaves next year’s Pentagon funding — and plans for any government funding past Sept. 30 — in doubt. If a short-term budget extension or a long-term funding plan is not approved in the next nine days, the appropriations lapse will trigger a partial government shutdown, canceling all non-essential military activities and furloughing hundreds of thousands of federal workers.
However, the term “fiscal responsibility” has never held any meaning for Biden. With this in mind, it is no surprise the occupant of the Oval Office has signed an executive order to create a New Deal-style American Climate Corps, based on pseudoscience and a lust for power.
After being thwarted by Congress, President Joe Biden will use his executive authority to create a New Deal-style American Climate Corps that will serve as a major green jobs training program.
In an announcement Wednesday, the White House said the program will employ more than 20,000 young adults who will build trails, plant trees, help install solar panels and do other work to boost conservation and help prevent catastrophic wildfires.
The climate corps had been proposed in early versions of the sweeping climate law approved last year but was jettisoned amid strong opposition from Republicans and concerns about cost.
Democrats and environmental advocacy groups never gave up on the plan and pushed Biden in recent weeks to issue an executive order authorizing what the White House now calls the American Climate Corps.
However, there is one flaw in this plan. Congress is in charge of the budgets, and despite the fact most Americans have not been persuaded by our elite media that climate change is an Earth-destroying disaster they are responsible for, our representatives have not been inclined to fund it.
Democrats sought funding for the program in their climate and social spending legislation dubbed the “Build Back Better Act,” but the plan was stripped from the climate law that emerged.
“Years after idea and imagination, after organizing and marching, yet another element of the president’s historic climate agenda is coming to life,” Zaidi said.
The White House didn’t provide specifics about how the program will be structured or funded.
I suspect this is a desperate move by Team Biden, which is bitterly clinging to its remaining supporters as Democrats appear to be looking for palatable alternatives for the 2024 presidential campaign.
A growing number of polls are showing voters concerned about President Biden’s age and energy. Democratic lawmakers have hesitated to offer full-throated endorsements of his running mate. Prominent commentators have ruminated on whether he should drop out of the presidential race.
This series of political vulnerabilities — along with House Republicans announcing an impeachment inquiry and the Justice Department indicting Biden’s son on gun charges — is now sending waves of anxiety through parts of the Democratic Party, as some fret about whether the man who helped oust Donald Trump from the White House may not have the vitality, at 80, to successfully prevent a return.
If the Biden administration and Democrats were truly interested in policies based on real science, it would recognize there is no climate emergency.
