Joe Biden boasted two years ago that the CEO of a major electric bus manufacturer was making him “look good” and federal dollars poured into the company. Now those words have come back to haunt him as an entire town’s electric bus fleet backed by the company broke down.
President Joe Biden’s visit to Michigan Tuesday amid the ongoing United Auto Workers (UAW) strike lays bare the ongoing fight between two reliable factions of the Democratic Party. This squabble has long-lasting implications that extend beyond current events, and every would-be Democratic standard bearer is caught betwixt and between with no easy way out.
While visiting autoworkers in Michigan, former President Donald Trump was met with chants of “USA! USA!” when he pledged to roll back President Biden’s electric vehicle mandates and revitalize the gas-powered vehicle industry.
The Biden Administration has pledged to convert the federal government’s vehicle fleet from gas-powered to electric by 2030. As a result, automakers have received massive loans to produce electric vehicles.
Former President Donald Trump told autoworkers that they have been left behind by the Democratic Party while speaking to workers in Michigan. “You built this country,” Trump said.
The former president travelled to Michigan on Wednesday to address workers at Drake Enterprises, a non-union auto parts shop. Trump’s visit comes just one day after President Biden briefly chatted with United Auto Workers union boss Shawn Fain before spending 15 minutes addressing workers on the picket line. The president then boarded Air Force One and headed to a fundraiser.
Speaking at a convention in April, United Auto Workers President Shawn Fain identified what he considered the union’s “one and only true enemy – multibillion-dollar corporations and employers that refuse to give our members their fair share.” He may be attacking the wrong enemy.
A startling and honestly distressing view is beginning to receive serious consideration in both academic and popular discussions of climate change ethics. According to this view, having a child is a major contributor to climate change. The logical takeaway here is that everyone on Earth ought to consider having fewer children.
Biden Climate Czar John Kerry’s daughter Vanessa Kerry has clearly learned a great deal about manipulating the public from dear old dad.
Vanessa, the World Health Organization’s special envoy for climate change, spoke on a World Economic Forum panel to discuss how to successfully prey on the public’s fear and emotions following the pandemic to push the “climate crisis” narrative.
World Economic Forum agenda contributor Jemilah Mahmood also spoke on the panel.
