UPDATE April 22, 2023:
Biden administration’s Destroy America Now economic agenda wants you to be a climate refugee.
You wouldn’t know it from listening to White House talking heads, but Joe Biden just had a really bad week that ended with Jim Jordan (R-OH) prevailing in the House Judiciary Committee’s effort to interview ex-Alvin Bragg prosecutor Mark Pomerantz about Donald Trump’s indictment.
Americans heard allegations that senior Biden campaign advisor and now Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and the Biden campaign interfered in the 2020 election with a Russia disinformation hoax to cover up very real news about Hunter’s very real laptop.825 That growing scandal culminated in an April 20, 2023 demand letter to Blinken from Judiciary Committee Republicans.
To top off Biden scandal developments, an IRS whistleblower offered information about possible White House involvement in the investigation of Hunter’s financial dealings.
It remains to be seen whether any of these revelations will go anywhere except the Democrat Party burn pit. Transparency is not a Biden White House priority and accountability is out of the question for America’s political left, which would never consider holding itself to the standards it demands for everyone else.
Karine Jean-Pierre is the greatest cog in the Joe Biden protection racket. With scandals dropping from the sky like rain, the press secretary used her Friday afternoon press conference to focus on what matters most to a country ravaged by the Biden economy: a federal budget to stop climate Armageddon.
President Biden has done more than any prior President to tackle the climate crisis, and today he’s making clear that he’s not done yet.826
That’s what we were afraid of.
“Not done yet” means another executive order, this time “making environmental justice part of the DNA of every federal agency.”827
Setting aside the absurdity of talking about the DNA of Washington bureaucracy while rejecting the basic genetics of male XY vs. female XX biology, this is a blatant appeal to climate doomsayers, advocates of racial division, and Democrat determination to spend America into Third World territory.
Finishing off an economy that is already faltering means stopping any political opposition to misguided political spending before it builds up serious steam. To that end, Jean-Pierre concentrates on attacking House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) over the GOP budget proposal and threatening Americans with certain default if he’s not stopped:
Speaking of — speaking of, earlier this week, Speaker McCarthy redoubled his threat to default and hold the American economy hostage unless he can slash programs that the American people, including our nation’s veterans, rely on every single day.828
Protective custody would be a more accurate term. Like Biden, Jean-Pierre is a serial liar. If her lips are moving, she is not telling the truth.
What we do know for a fact is that this president has brought America to its knees. While the press secretary demands Republicans cease alleged threats to veterans’ health and food assistance,829 the White House refuses to shift gears on any aspect of Biden’s activist Destroy America Now economic agenda.
While America is invaded, Biden goes out for ice cream.
The history book-ready image of the Biden presidency is Joe’s senile head slobbering over a too-large ice cream cone while illegals from every nation on earth invade our country and a spy balloon passes overhead collecting information for the CCP.
Title 42, our last shred of protection against the illegal hordes, expires on May 11, 2023. No matter what the administration says about surging resources, this is a political bounty for Biden and every Democrat who hates America and doesn’t believe we deserve a sovereign border. Nothing is going to stand in the way of migrants party members insist are needy refugees fleeing attacks from a deteriorating climate and other threats Americans are not responsible for.
Extreme Radical Democrat Ilhan Omar (D-MN) joined fellow radicals to coin the term “climate refugee” early in the Biden presidency. They spoke of “climate displaced persons,” “climate change migration,” and most important, “climate refugees.”830
This was left-wing climate doomsayer nonsense in service to bolstering illegal immigration, of course. Illegals come to America for the prosperity promised by a president working feverishly to grow his Great Replacement numbers and destroy the economy that provides opportunity for those lucky enough to live here, including illegals. A crippled economy requiring dependence and subservience to Democrat Party spending are far more important goals than sustainable economic growth for all Americans. The COVID pandemic was a dry run. Now it’s time for the real thing.
Biden wants you and your family to be climate refugees.
Thanks to the historic success of Biden’s Destroy America Now policies, the American people face threats that will turn many of us into refugees within our own country. Food costs too much. Gas prices are too high. The housing market is in a shambles.
House Budget Committee Chairman Jodey Arrington (R-TX) details what Biden’s economic plan has delivered so far:
Inflation is running at 5.0 percent. Inflation has risen 14.9 percent since President Biden took office, amounting to $1,098 in increased average costs for a family of four.
Real wages have declined by 3.7 percent since President Biden took office.
Core inflation is at 5.6 percent, more than triple the level when President Biden took office.
Gasoline prices are currently 37.8 percent higher than when President Biden took office. Energy prices have increased 32.6 percent since President Biden took office.
Food prices are currently 17.7 percent higher than when President Biden took office.831
Budget Committee Leader Jason Smith (R-MO) confirms what families in peril from the Biden economy already know:
This is a disturbing and deliberate effort by President Biden and Washington Democrats to put their partisan spending agenda ahead of the concerns of working families.832
Unlike the illegals the president welcomes across our border, the working families Smith refers to are destined to be genuine, card-carrying economic refugees unable to sustain the demands of a failing economy created by this president’s far-left, climate-centric economic agenda.
Jean-Pierre made clear during her press conference that identity politics and climate doomsaying still top the list of what matters most to this administration:
Here in the Biden administration, for the first time ever, we’ve got over 100 Muslim American appointees joining in the [Eid Mubarak] celebration. These are public servants who are tackling the climate crisis, building on the economy from the bottom up and the middle out, protecting health, combatting hate in all its forms, restoring our alliances, and so much more.833
Yes, the working and middle classes come after the climate. As for restoring our alliances, I’m not sure how that slipped in. Biden is well on his way to pushing our allies into China’s arms as we saw with France’s recent betrayal. The good news is that when he’s finished with us, the CCP should have plenty of cash to support America’s impoverished climate refugees. Perhaps Biden and his family can scrape up a little profit from what’s left over. Joe will certainly deserve the credit for making it happen.
