Joe Biden has claimed that he’s doing everything he can to bring down the price of gas. This is obviously a fabrication since it all began because Biden put his foot in the throat of the energy sector. Biden and his administration have also made it clear that the pain is the point — that the most important thing is the Democrats’ climate mantra and the transition away from fossil fuels, whether or not that’s even something that Americans want and however it might hurt Americans.
However, if you believed they were already doing everything possible to damage the economy or the country’s reputation, then the Senate Democrats have indicated that they will do more.
They know they can’t get what they want through Congress because they don’t have the votes and Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) dropkicked their dreams, blocking their spending ambitions.
So Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) and Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR) are now urging Biden to get what they want by declaring a “climate emergency” so that they could then employ the Defense Production Act to force their climate goals on the country through a wide range of renewable projects including solar panels.
The senators called for Biden to use the “bully pulpit.”
“It is time for the Biden administration to pivot to a very aggressive climate strategy,” Merkley said.
Biden stated last week that he will take unknown steps to lower climate emissions. This was after Joe Manchin, a Democratic senator, withdrew his support for the climate legislation Democrats had wanted to pass before Congress departs Washington for August recess. In the evenly divided Senate, Manchin’s support was critical for passage of the legislation, which lacked any Republican backing.
It seems that Biden has begun to consider this.
Scoop: White House considering declaring National Climate Emergency as Soon as This Week, according to Sources. The administration is exploring a raft of unilateral options after the collapse of negotiations w/ Manchin.

According to the Washington Post’s Jeff Stein, the White House is weighing “declaring national climate emergency as soon as this week, per sources.”
Biden already used the Defense Production Act to fabricate more solar panel production in an unconstitutional action last month. White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was questioned about it but wasn’t able to give any reasonable response to how this was justified.
The reporter asked Joe Biden why he invoked the Defense Production Act in order to make solar panels.

Biden was allowed to do that without any legal consequences. So now he’s going to go further.
Imposing a party’s political will wasn’t supposed to be the purpose of the Act — it was supposed to be in the case of a genuine emergency, like a war. Not being able to pass legislation to impose what they want isn’t an “emergency.” This is the government interjecting itself and dictating to private industry — to determine what can and cannot be done. This goes against our very nature. We’re not a Communist country, the government doesn’t get to do this and impose its will on private business.
They are already celebrating the impending massive spending.
This would be an absolutely massive development, allowing for the vast allocation of federal resources to address climate change via executive action—and it follows a 2019 resolution from @BernieSanders & @AOCFor an emergency response to this crisis, please click here https://t.co/hq1yAMnpGk https://t.co/z8USXynLTK pic.twitter.com/HUyXNuchRa

Their goal is to destroy the country’s energy sector. If Biden does this and gets away with it, they will continue employing this to impose other “emergencies” and commandeer private industry.
Manchin tried saving the country but Biden, and other Democrats, are determined to kill us. If we want to live, they must be removed in November.
