The Conservative Voice of Manatee County

By Mark Young

I’m sure you’ve heard of Murphy’s Law where if anything can go wrong, it will.

Joe Biden’s administration is the definition of Murphy’s Law. However, typically in the case of Murphy’s Law it’s a case of having a good plan and things just go south. In the case of Joe Biden, it’s just bad plans destined for bad outcomes.

It’s getting a little tough to keep up with the weekly debacles being created by Biden and his elitist regime.

But thank goodness someone reminded him late into the night on June 6 that it was the 75th anniversary of the Normandy landing. Last year, he never even mentioned it, but this year a tweet was sent out just before 9 p.m. acknowledging the Greatest Generation’s deadly landing that was the first step to save the world.

I kind of doubt it was Biden’s tweet though. There is no way he was up that late. I’m sure it was a staffer who has control of the White House’s Twitter account that threw together a brief statement at the last minute.

It all just fills me with such patriotism and pride knowing Biden is in charge. Not.

And now the circus clown-in-chief wants to invoke the defense production act for … wait for it … solar equipment.

We’ve covered this topic in depth, so I’ll move on from the White House lies regarding energy.

And we’ve also covered, to a lesser extent, that a significant short-term increase in solar production mostly benefits China, because China is the leading producer of materials needed to make solar equipment.

So let’s try and break down what Biden is wanting to do in its simplest form and I’ll give you what I believe to be Biden’s 10-step plan.

Step one: Illegally and unnecessarily invoke an act that is specifically in place for war time production and extreme national emergencies. It was created during WWII and hasn’t been used since, except for President Trump who understandably invoked it to fight a deadly pandemic.

So in Biden’s mind, the need to produce more solar equipment falls somewhere in between world war and a deadly pandemic.

With me so far? OK, good.

Step two: Conveniently forget the Solyndra scandal under the Obama/Biden administration where those two clowns gave Solyndra $535 million of our money that produced nothing.

Step three: By invoking the defense production act, you immediately put the few American companies producing solar equipment – with imports from China – essentially out of business.

Step four: Our tax dollars will indeed go to the purchase and production of a massive amount of solar equipment that will basically sit unused, much like our border wall materials because the infrastructure to support green energy is still decades away.

Step five: Conveniently forget that more than 90 percent of our electrical companies still operate on coal, so increase the pressure on the war on coal, oil and gas, all of which we basically need to survive.

Step six: Make China incredibly richer than what they already are because every company required to make solar equipment – which will increase dramatically under the defense act – will have to buy parts from China because China essentially has a monopoly on the mineral mines needed to make solar equipment and electric batteries.

Step seven: Conveniently forget that U.S. policies created by democrat leadership gave China said control.

Step eight: Take billions of taxpayer dollars and flush it all down the toilet because we’ll get nothing out of it while making China stronger.

Step nine: Conveniently forget that the same amount of money that is going to be wasted on this endeavor could easily be applied to producing and refining oil and natural gas right here in the good ol’ US of A, which would actually do something about the price of gas, and in turn, inflation.

Step 10: Schedule a White House meeting consisting of all the circus monkeys currently in charge, open several bottles of foreign champagne and celebrate their continued efforts to destroy America.

I don’t know if I have the order right on their to-do list, but it sounds about right to me.

I’ve never seen a more corrupt president than Joe Biden. His own ties, as well as his family’s ties to China are so blatant even a liberal could spot it. OK, apparently not, because there are still some 20 percent or so of “Americans” who think Biden is doing a great job for this country.

Seriously, who are these people?

My guess would be the woman who secured herself to the net at the French Open wearing a shirt that said we only have 1,048 days to live.

I might be off on that number, but it was a few days ago so I guess we have less time than that. She trumps AOC’s guesstimate that we only have 12 years to live. And what was she thinking putting a number like that on a shirt? She can only wear it for a day. It’s already irrelevant.

She probably doesn’t even realize she bought a shirt that was likely made by a 7-year-old Chinese girl working away in a slave labor camp to make a shirt that this woman could only wear for one day.

Oh, the irony.

Remember the 2012 end-of-the-world prediction because the Mayan calendar was running out? Or Y2K? Or a plethora of others for that matter.

This tennis gal was pretty specific though, but my money’s on the fact that she’s wrong. But I bet she’s a Biden voter. I bet she’s one of the 20 percent who think Biden is doing a good job, too.

There are a lot of people out there like that, but that’s not the scary part. The scary part is that they vote.

So as always my fellow Patriots, we have no choice but to stay vigilant, stay aware and stay informed.
