By way of definition as it pertains to this thread on what I am calling Joe Biden’s rigged “green” game, where “green” is the color of the taxpayer money Joe is blowing through with his INSANE GREEN DREAM which is a direct cause of global warming and climate change, if someone, Joe Biden in this case, rigs a game as Joe is clearly doing here with his determinations of no environmental impacts from anything he is doing or proposing, they dishonestly arrange it to get the result they want and/or to give someone an unfair advantage – in this case, that being those who are the recipients of the massive amount of “green” Joe Biden and his lackeys and lickspittles and toadies and sycophants like Peter Paul Montgomery Buttigieg, and Gina Raimondo, and Jennifer Granholm, and Lizzie Klein, an environmental lawyer and clean energy champion who was just appointed director of the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management by Joe, are handing out to buy love for Joe Biden and the generous Democrats, as well as to provide a source of graft (the acquisition of money, gain, or advantage by dishonest, unfair, or illegal means, especially through the abuse of one’s position or influence in politics) which has been DEMOCRAT party policy since the 1800’s in this country – raking graft.
Consider this language on that subject from the 1908 Democratic Party Platform on July 07, 1908, to wit:
We rejoice at the increasing signs of an awakening throughout the country.
The various investigations have traced graft and political corruption to the representatives of the predatory wealth, and laid bare the unscrupulous methods by which they have debauched elections and preyed upon a defenseless public through the subservient officials whom they have raised to place and power.
The conscience of the nation is now aroused to free the Government from the grip of those who have made it a business asset of the favor-seeking corporations.
Here we are, one hundred fifteen (115) years later, and we still have various investigations into the Biden family tracing graft and political corruption to the representatives of the predatory wealth, and laying bare the unscrupulous methods by which they have debauched elections, specifically in 2020, how they continue to prey upon a defenseless public through the subservient officials, in this case Joe Biden and the members of his administration, whom they have raised to place and power.
Sadly, however, the conscience of the nation is NOT aroused to free the Government from the grip of those who have made it a business asset of the favor-seeking corporations who are the recipients of all this “green” Joe Biden and his crew are handing out, like it is candy.
Going back to the verb “rig,” we use that to mean “to manipulate or control usually by deceptive or dishonest means” and “to fix in advance for a desired result,” which in this case is Joe Biden’s INSANE GREEN AGENDA which is going to turn us into a backwards third-world nation that is massively in debt and suffering from high inflation, as we clearly see in a Reuters article titled “U.S. government posts $378 billion deficit in March” on April 12, 2023, to wit:
(Reuters) – The U.S. government recorded a $378-billion budget deficit in March as outlays outpaced revenues, the Treasury Department said on Wednesday.
That compared to a budget deficit of $193 billion in the same month last year, according to the Treasury’s monthly budget statement.
The March deficit brought the year-to-date fiscal deficit to $1.1 trillion, up 65% from a year earlier.
As Joe Biden pours money out the door for his INSANE GREEN DREAM like a modern-day MAD KING LUDWIG of Bavaria, it is our descendants who are getting the bill, and are getting royally screwed in the process, which takes us to a Reuters article titled “NY Fed report sees several more years of balance sheet contraction” by Michael S. Derby on April 11, 2023, as follows:
As part of the annual report for its System Open Market Account for 2022, the bank (the federal reserve) said that Fed holdings, which now stand at $8.7 trillion, will likely fall to around $6 trillion by the middle of 2025 before holding steady for around a year.
Holdings are then expected to grow to maintain balance with the growth of the economy and tick back up to $7.2 trillion by 2030.
In other words, the federal reserve is monetizing the debt Joe Biden is incurring with his INSANE GREEN DREAM with its windmills and electric cars and solar farms by buying the debt Joe is issuing in the form of bonds, and we are paying the federal reserve interest on those bonds they hold, and to put that in its proper perspective, consider that as of March 2023 it costs we, the American people $384 billion to maintain the debt, which is to say, pay the interest due, which is 12% of the total federal spending.
And for what?
What exactly are we getting for our money?
And here we need to delve into some relevant American history that appears to be totally unknown today in this age of the INSANE GREEN DREAM of American dictator Joseph Robinette Biden, Junior, as follows:
The National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969 was created to ensure federal agencies consider the environmental impacts of their actions and decisions.
Federal agencies are required to systematically assess the environmental impacts of their proposed actions and consider alternative ways of accomplishing their missions, which are less damaging to and protective of the environment.
Sec. 2 [42 USC § 4321].
The purposes of this Act are: To declare a national policy which will encourage productive and enjoyable harmony between man and his environment; to promote efforts which will prevent or eliminate damage to the environment and biosphere and stimulate the health and welfare of man; to enrich the understanding of the ecological
systems and natural resources important to the Nation; and to establish a Council on
CONGRESSIONAL DECLARATION OF NATIONAL ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY
Sec. 101 [42 USC § 4331].
(a) The Congress, recognizing the profound impact of man’s activity on the interrelations of all components of the natural environment, particularly the profound influences of population growth, high-density urbanization, industrial expansion, resource exploitation, and new and expanding technological advances and recognizing further the critical importance of restoring and maintaining environmental quality to the overall welfare and development of man, declares that it is the continuing policy of the Federal Government, in cooperation with State and local governments, and other concerned public and private organizations, to use all practicable means and measures, including financial and technical assistance, in a manner calculated to foster and promote the general welfare, to create and maintain conditions under which man and nature can exist in productive harmony, and fulfill the social, economic, and other requirements of present and future generations of Americans.
And here I am going to rest for a moment to rest for a moment to let that all sink in, because in this age of Joe Biden’s INSANE GREEN DREAM, that has all gone right out the window as if it never was, so stay tuned!
