President Joe Biden, on the heels of a Supreme Court loss of executive powers to curb emissions, rebounded with racy language that branded weather patterns as “an emergency — an emergency,” don’t you know, and then he called for $2.3 billion of tax dollars to redistribute to select communities to fight heat and cold and rain and stuff.

The radical environmentalists of the nation, nay, the world, have found the man of their dreams in Biden.

He’s the holder of the most powerful office in the world, he has no independent thinking capacity and he’s weak. What more could the pushers of fear and mongers of manufactured mayhem need to ram through agendas that have been long in waiting — mostly because nobody in politics this side of sane would touch them with a two-foot pole? Walking that walk, after all, would mean walking right out of cushy, benefit-filled public service and right back into average Joe and Jane life. It’s hard to be a nine-to-fiver after living large off the taxpayer dime.

But Joe doesn’t care.

Joe doesn’t care ‘cause Joe just doesn’t know what’s going on. 

He’s the dangling puppet on the Marxist, globalist, socialist, communist puppet-master’s string. Give him some words to read, point him to the podium and watch him go.

“As president,” he said earlier this week, from a Massachusetts site that used to be a coal plant, “I have a responsibility to act with urgency and resolve when our nation faces clear and present danger. And that’s what climate change is about. It’s literally, not figuratively, a clear and present danger.”

Do tell.

“The health of our citizens and our communities is literally at stake,” he went on.

Go on.

“Climate change is literally an existential threat to our nation and to the world,” he continued.

Again, that’s literally, not figuratively. Or, lie, not fact — but hey, potato, potahto. Then he put forth his plan: $2.3 billion to buy air conditioners for people who ought to buy their own dang air conditioners if they want them because that’s how a free market works; America’s not socialist — and oh yes, for some offshore wind energy in the Gulf of Mexico that’s about as useful to the cause of cooling as outfitting every man, woman and child in America with two reams of paper to fashion into old-timey type hand-held fans, and getting them to line up at select times in the streets of their communities to wave madly, in unison, to create a mass airflow. They can call it Air Stream; like Russia’s Nord Stream only cleaner.

But that’s to digress.

Apparently, Biden’s $2.3 billion plan isn’t big enough for some.

Biden must declare a climate emergency, ban crude oil exports and halt new fossil fuel infrastructure, including pipelines and export terminals,” said Wenonah Hauter, the executive director of Food & Water Watch, as The Guardian reported. Why? What for?

“The clock is rapidly ticking towards inevitable, irreversible climate catastrophe,” Hauter said. “There is no more time to lose.”

Meaning, of course, that Biden is halfway through his White House term and the puppet masters only have two more years to shove through their agenda before a Republican takes office, hopefully Donald Trump, and blows back the bombast that has fueled the climate crowd’s demands for outrageous regulatory controls.

And therein lies the ultimate end game of this particular brand of elitists and globalists: total top-down controls on individual liberties. The two-plus years of COVID-19 clamps were nothing compared to what’s coming, if the environmentalists get their way. 

“Great Reset: for a healthier, more equitable and prosperous post COVID-19 world,” ran one headline from Iberdrola. 

The three principles unveiled by the World Economic Forum at Davos in 2021 are these: a redefining of capitalism so it’s less profit-driven and more social justice oriented — that is, a shift from shareholder to stakeholder capitalism; the creation of governments and corporate entities that use environmental, social and governance standards for success — called the ESG criteria; and a Fourth Industrial Revolution “for the public good, nourishing greener, smarter and fairer growth.”

The question for Americans should be — who decides? And the answer is this: the Davos collective. 

That’s the death knell for God-given rights; the final crumbling of individualism; the ultimate destruction of American liberties, as we know and understand them.

In that respect, Biden’s right: “And that’s what climate change is about. It’s literally, not figuratively, a clear and present danger.”

Yes — to liberty.

Patriotic Americans must see the danger, and vote away the danger. It’s the only way to keep out the Davos danger.
