Biden Marches With Autoworkers While Causing Their Problems

President Joe Biden showed “solidarity” with striking United Auto Workers by joining them Tuesday on the picket line near Detroit—one day before former President Donald Trump is to deliver remarks to an audience of current and former union members at an auto parts manufacturer, also in Michigan.

The UAW is demanding a 35% hike in pay and benefits over four years, as well as automatic cost-of-living adjustments, just like in the 1970s, along with a four-day workweek.

The inflationary 1970s are calling Biden, and they want their benefits back—with a post-COVID-19 four-day twist.

According to news reports , Biden told workers, “You should be doing incredibly well.” But he has singlehandedly, through the power of his executive branch, caused them to face job losses and higher inflation.

By changing his policies, Biden could address some of the fundamental reasons for their strike; namely, job loss because of mandatory vehicle electrification and higher inflation resulting from his war on fossil fuels, resulting in higher energy costs.

Both were imposed by the executive branch without support from even the Democratic Congress in place during Biden’s first two years in office.

Proposed regulations on automobile emissions from the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Transportation would require electric vehicles to make up 60% of new car sales by 2030 and 66% by 2032, compared to fewer than 6% in 2022—all for practically no environmental benefit.

That will adversely affect new-car purchasers , who will no longer have the choice of buying gasoline-powered vehicles, as well as those who make and support those vehicles.

Drivers who like electric vehicles, primarily upper-income households in urban areas, are in luck. But those who prefer gasoline-powered cars will see increases in their costs, both for new and used cars, and UAW employees will lose jobs.

The job loss is old news. Ford Motor Co. CEO Jim Farley said last November , “It takes 40% less labor to make an electric car.” That would be 200,000 fewer jobs in 2030 and 400,000 fewer in the long run. The UAW had time to take that information into account during pre-strike contract negotiations.

New jobs in EVs and batteries for those vehicles are being created through federal Inflation Reduction Act funding, but those jobs are in right-to-work states, where wages are lower and workers do not have to join a union as a condition of employment.

Hyundai and LG are receiving subsidies for a $4 billion battery plant in Georgia , and Ford and Envision are spending a combined $8 billion on three battery plants in Kentucky.

Chinese workers are also winners, because the Chinese Communist Party owns a substantial share of the minerals required for EV batteries, such as lithium, graphite, and cobalt. Beijing is buying mines in Africa for minerals and setting up factories in Indonesia to avoid potential bans on Chinese imports.

The move from gasoline-powered engines to electric vehicles also affects auto parts suppliers, such as Delphi, which describes itself as the “global aftermarket leader” with “quality parts and diagnostics you can depend on.”

Auto parts employees will also lose jobs because EVs have fewer parts, and electrical components are likely to come from abroad.

Auto mechanics will be affected, because EV owners can’t go to their local gas stations for service. Teslas and other EVs need to go back to the dealers for servicing.

Just 6% of new vehicles sold were EVs in 2022, because Americans prefer vehicles with some gasoline-powered engine, either regular or hybrid.

The best-selling vehicle in America is the Ford F-150 pickup truck, with other pickup trucks and SUVs not far behind. The move to 60% of sales for EVs by 2030 and 66% just two years later in 2032, with an end to gasoline-powered car sales in 2035, is due to pressure from the Biden administration.

In addition to the prospect of job losses, Americans are seeing inflation, which is driving the UAW’s wage demands of a 35% increase over four years.  Energy was the largest component of August’s uptick in inflation . Biden came into office with a promise to end fossil fuels, and he’s trying to fulfill his promise, so it should be no surprise that energy costs are rising.

Biden signaled to oil companies that future investments were uncertain and unwanted. Without congressional action, he ended construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, raised lease fees and royalties on federal lands, designated large swaths of federal  lands off-limits to oil exploration, and ended previously agreed-upon leases in Alaska.

In addition, the Biden administration is slowing pipeline construction, and America needs pipelines to bring more oil and natural gas from where it is produced to domestic businesses and consumers, and for overseas export.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission is now for the first time including potential greenhouse gases and effects on “environmental justice communities” in its pipeline-approval process.

Other federal agencies, including the Securities and Exchange Commission , the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve , and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency are cutting off funding for pipelines by requiring companies to report climate effects of their investments. Banks that lend for fossil fuel projects, including pipelines, and companies that produce their components, are likely to face heightened regulatory scrutiny. (Meanwhile, Biden has begged Venezuela to sell America heavy crude, this time coming to U.S. refineries by tankers rather than pipeline.)

The green agenda is driving the UAW to strike, because banning the internal-combustion engine is equivalent to banning auto jobs. 

The coalition of green environmentalists and blue-collar workers is fracturing, with green policies disproportionately affecting the blues . Biden’s visit to the picket line gives the blues the opportunity to tell their concerns to the president in person.

EV mandates and high energy prices from the president that the UAW campaigned for and helped elect are leading to shrinking worker incomes. That should be the message from the UAW to the president today.

House Oversight Hearing to ‘Lay the Foundation’ for Biden Impeachment

The House Oversight and Accountability Committee plans to present evidence and lay the groundwork for the potential impeachment of President Joe Biden in its opening hearing Thursday, Republican members say. 

“If this were anyone else, they would be nailed on tax fraud,” Rep. Gary Palmer, R-Ala., also chairman of the Republican Policy Committee, told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. 

“If there are articles of impeachment, it will be based on the evidence of possible tax fraud and failure to register under FARA. We will go where the evidence leads,” Palmer said.

FARA is the Foreign Agents Registration Act, a federal law that many Republicans allege Hunter Biden broke while working for or doing business with foreign companies and suggesting favors from his father, then the nation’s vice president. 

“We know the president lied when he said he didn’t know about Hunter Biden’s business deals,” Palmer added, referring to Joe Biden. 

Other Republicans on the House committee, including Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., argue that  it should investigate bribery as well as conspiracy to avoid the law requiring registration. 

The panel’s hearing is set for 10 a.m. Thursday. Announced witnesses include:

—Bruce Dubinsky, a forensic accountant with financial, investigative, and dispute-consulting experience who has been an expert witness over 100 times and testified in over 80 trials.

—Eileen O’Connor, former U.S. assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Tax Division.

—George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley, a frequent commentator on Fox News Channel who acted as counsel in a judicial impeachment trial. 

The hearing’s apparent emphasis on tax law could mean a possible investigation into bribery. Bribery investigations can be pursued through tax probes. Internal Revenue Service forms , under the heading “other income,” ask: “Bribes. If you receive a bribe, include it in your income.”

The House panel will present evidence and hear expert testimony on what Republicans call influence peddling by members of the Biden family, including the president. 

Besides Palmer, seven other Republican members of the House Oversight and Accountability Committee replied to The Daily Signal about the goal of the panel’s first hearing in its impechment inquiry.

“The justification for the impeachment inquiry is the mountain of circumstantial evidence. Period,” Rep. Scott Perry, R-Pa., chairman of the House Freedom Caucus, told The Daily Signal in a written statement. 

In July, Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, released an FBI form that showed a confidential informant had reported that executives with Burisma, a Ukrainian energy company, paid a $5 million bribe to then-Vice President Biden in 2016 to help scuttle a Ukrainian government investigation of the company. 

The House Oversight and Accountability Committee learned that while Barack Obama’s vice president for eight years, Biden used a pseudonym in emails forwarded to his son and a business partner. 

“For the past eight months, the Oversight Committee has uncovered an overwhelming amount of evidence showing Joe Biden’s involvement in his family’s influence-peddling schemes,” Rep. Jake LaTurner, R-Kan., another committee member, told The Daily Signal in a written statement. 

“On Thursday, we will present the facts to the American people and begin to lay the foundation for our impeachment inquiry. Holding Joe Biden accountable for abusing his role in government is a vital step in restoring public trust in our institutions,” LaTurner said. 

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., launched the impeachment inquiry into the elder Biden’s activities Sept. 12. 

The evidence uncovered already by House Republicans is too compelling to ignore, Rep. Russell Fry, R-S.C., said. 

“This impeachment inquiry allows us to escalate the investigation and dig deeper into the facts,” Fry, another committee member, told The Daily Signal. 

Fry added:

The Constitution prescribes an important tool for holding government officials accountable if needed, and we are prudently examining this option. During Thursday’s first impeachment inquiry hearing conducted by the House Oversight Committee, I want to explore the mechanics of impeachment and examine the potential malfeasance of our current president. This hearing will assess the current evidence we have against Joe Biden, and we will continue, as always, to let the facts guide our path.

Bank records show the amount of money from foreign individuals and entities that poured into Biden family entities reached $20 million during Biden’s vice presidency from 2009 through 2016. 

“The Oversight Committee has done more to hold Joe Biden accountable than the FBI and DOJ [Justice Department] have done in the last nine years,” Rep. Lisa McClain, R-Mich., told The Daily Signal in a written statement. “The culture of corruption perpetuated by this president is shocking, and it is our responsibility to bring the truth to light. Thursday’s hearing is another step in that effort, but we are far from done.”

The House committee also determined that, while vice president, Biden used Air Force Two to help his son promote his business interests in foreign nations, including China and Ukraine. 

“Thursday’s hearing will lay out all of the evidence we’ve uncovered through the Oversight Committee’s work,” Rep. Tim Burchett, R-Tenn., told The Daily Signal. “This hearing is long overdue, we have more than enough evidence of corruption to begin this inquiry, and Americans want to see the president stuck with some charges by the time this whole process is over. Thursday will be a good start.”

Ian Sams, senior adviser to the White House counsel’s office, routinely has attacked the committee’s impeachment proceedings as unwarranted. In a post Monday on X, formerly Twitter, Sams suggested that House Republicans have a cartoon character as a surprise witness. 

The title of the committee’s hearing is “The Basis for an Impeachment Inquiry of President Joseph R. Biden Jr .,” which suggests it is the first of several hearings ahead, said Thomas Jipping, a senior legal fellow with The Heritage Foundation. (The Daily Signal is Heritage’s multimedia news organization.) 

“Ultimately, the result is whether articles of impeachment go to the House floor, and that doesn’t really matter how we get there or whether a resolution passes on the House floor,” Jipping, who was deputy chief counsel during the Senate impeachment trial of U.S. District Judge G. Thomas Porteous in 2010, told The Daily Signal. 

“Impeachments occur when there is literally a perceived attack on the office,” Jipping said. “Each impeachment is totally unique. None are entirely comparable. So, you don’t need a precedent.”

Rep. Pat Fallon, R-Texas, another committee member, stressed that the impeachment of a president must be approached carefully. 

“To pursue yet another impeachment for purely political reasons is neither constructive for our party nor the nation. However, it is our duty to at least investigate the allegations of Joe Biden’s corruption,” Fallon said. 

But the Texas Republican added that substantial evidence of wrongdoing exists. 

“From what we have uncovered so far, I think the preponderance of evidence is more likely than not that Joe Biden utilized and benefited from his son Hunter in corrupt business dealings; that both were involved in peddling access and influence,” Fallon said.  

Rep. Clay Higgins, R-La., told The Daily Signal that Biden has “abused his power and authority in high office.”

“Our Oversight Committee investigation into the Biden family involvement with at least 20 shell corporations receiving millions in payments from several foreign nation entities while Joe Biden was VP, as documented by bank records that we have obtained, is essentially the basis for legitimate impeachment proceedings against President Biden,” Higgins said in a written statement.

“He has abused his power and authority in high office, violating the people’s trust and compromising the entire United States executive branch,” Higgins said.

House Democratic Leader Targets Supreme Court Justices: ‘Right-Wing Extremists’

Democratic House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries accused Supreme Court justices on Tuesday of being “right-wing extremists.”

“It appears there is no bottom to the unethical conduct of the right-wing extremists on the Supreme Court,” said the New York Democrat, who did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Daily Signal.

It’s not clear what conduct Jeffries was referring to—perhaps last week’s ProPublica report accusing Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas of violating Supreme Court ethics related to speaking engagements with a Koch philanthropy group.

But Jeffries’ tweet was met with criticism from those who accuse high-profile Democrats of stirring up resentment against the justices.

Since the May 2022 leak of the draft opinion indicating the Roe v. Wade abortion decision would be overturned, protesters have been illegally demonstrating outside the homes of the conservative justices. “Cut his time short. A rapist should not rule the court,” chanted protesters in January as they marched outside Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s home. “No privacy for us; no peace for you!”

“Even after their hate speech incited assassination attempts on Supreme Court justices, Democrat leaders [Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.] and Jeffries won’t stop their dangerous attacks,” the Federalist’s Mollie Hemingway tweeted in response on Tuesday.

Judicial Crisis Network President Carrie Severino tweeted a video highlighting the assassination attempt on Justice Brett Kavanaugh. That video attributes such threats to the justices’ lives to the “dangerous political brinkmanship” of lawmakers such as Schumer.

Schumer promised in March 2020: “I want to tell you, [Justice Neil] Gorsuch, and I want to tell you, Kavanaugh. You have released the whirlwind, and you will pay the price. You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.”

Schumer’s remarks were in reference to the Supreme Court case June Medical Services v. Russo, an abortion case the court ultimately decided  in favor of abortion advocates. But Schumer’s threats prompted Chief Justice John Roberts to issue a rare rebuke, calling Schumer’s comments both “inappropriate” and “dangerous.”

Ibram X. Kendi’s ‘Anti-Racism’ Center Imploded. Let’s Make Sure His Grift Doesn’t Continue to Poison Our Society.

Much like the crooked Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation before it, author and agitator Ibram X. Kendi’s noxious “anti-racism” grift has imploded at Boston University.

After three years of existence and tens of millions of dollars in funding, Kendi’s organization reportedly is falling apart.

Kendi’s Center for Antiracist Research received, at minimum, $43 million in grants and donations since it went into operation in 2020, according to the Boston University’s student newspaper, The Daily Free Press.

“The $43 million, according to 2021 budget records obtained by The Daily Free Press, includes general support, such as the $10 million from Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, as well as donations for specific projects,” the student newspaper reported.

Kendi’s center had the budget of a small market sports franchise, which is a lot of money for an ambiguous research institute. The production that Boston University got for this massive investment ended up to be about the same as my beloved but hapless Oakland A’s.

Kendi’s organization is now laying off staff en masse.

“There’s a mismatch between the amount of money that [the Center for Antiracist Research] has received from these grants and what they’ve actually produced,” an anonymous source told The Daily Free Press. “You can juxtapose that with other research centers either at BU or other universities that have received a tiny fraction of what CAR has received and has produced a lot more.”

It appears that, for all its money, Kendi’s anti-racism center produced next to nothing. Former employees are publicly burying it .

“It’s not that Kendi tried and failed to generate meaningful scholarly output; he seems to have had no interest in doing so to begin with—and no concept of what would have been involved if he tried,” writes Spencer Klavan at the Spectator.

Really, what did Kendi’s backers expect?

At no point has he ever been expected to prove his thesis with data or information. Academia never questioned the fundamental premise of Kendi’s ideology, especially after the “racial reckoning” of 2020. Any who did within the official institutions of approved thought would have found themselves quickly banished for thought crimes.

The legacy media praised Kendi breathlessly . In the few cases in which he’s been called on to defend his more ridiculous ideas—like how lowering capital gains taxes is a racist policy— his unsatisfactory answers never got a follow-up.

He was treated not as a scholar or researcher but as the Rasputin of anti-racism. Even at that, he’s been woefully deficient. He got tens of thousands of dollars for short speaking engagements and a huge contract from Netflix.

Still, there was nothing to show for it .

At an extremely friendly Aspen Ideas festival event, Kendi was asked to define “racism.” The venerated swami of our woke elite answered : “I would define it as a collection of racist policies that lead to racial inequity that are substantiated by racist ideas.”

According to Kendi racism is defined as doing a racism, leading to racism, the result being racism and inequity, which is racism. Got it?

I will give Kendi his due in one sense. His ideas have become akin to official orthodoxy in our country’s public and private institutions. That’s more a product of our institutions looking for someone to say what Kendi would say rather than his unique and insightful brilliance.

He just took advantage of the situation and sold them the snake oil they’d been yearning for.

For a refresher on Kendi’s worldview, I’ll point to my review of his book, “How to Be an Antiracist .” This book, alongside “White Fragility” by Robin DiAngelo, became a kind of foundational tract for college-educated liberals burning with the fire of the Great Awokening.

Kendi’s work revolved around three main concepts: First, that racism had to be redefined. It was no longer good enough to simply not be racist. There are only two modes of thought, Kendi wrote: racist and anti-racist. Denying you are a racist can actually make you a racist—the classic Kafka trap.

Second, anti-racists such as Kendi have posited that “colorblindness” in dealing with race is itself racism. You must see race all the time, recognize it, then address it. Under the anti-racist rubric, race becomes the defining feature of human existence.

Third, Kendi wrote that the way to deal with past discrimination is present discrimination. In addition, literally any racial discrepancies in society, according to Kendi, are a product of racism. To be a good anti-racist, you really must be the right kind of racist. 

Here’s what Kendi wrote in his book:

If discrimination is creating equity, then it is anti-racist. If discrimination is creating inequity, then it is racist. Someone reproducing inequity through permanently assisting an overrepresented racial group into wealth and power is entirely different than someone challenging that inequity by temporarily assisting an underrepresented racial group into relative wealth and power until equity is reached. The only remedy to racist discrimination is anti-racist discrimination. The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination.

To think that one can tinker with society to ensure perfect racial equity in all situations makes traditional Marxism seem downright pragmatic. 

Did it matter that Kendi’s project was philosophically absurd, in practice discriminatory and tyrannical? Not at all.

Big money and big institutions went all in on this project.

Millions of Kendi’s books have flooded American bookstores and libraries, most of them now gathering dust.

Our technocracy needs a reason for being. Symbolically fighting against racism is what gives their institutions credibility and authority in an age where basic competence appears to be waning.

The regime found a man and a movement with an almost limitless definition of what would count as “racist,” and therefore had a blank check to pursue the goal of stamping it out and justifying the its existence. DEI bureaucracies proliferated.

At some point, reality starts to intervene. The anti-racism movement is more akin to a cult than antyhing else, with limitless ends and that would ultimately require totalitarian means to produce.

Unfortunately, this cult attracted many adherents in high places.

On a larger scale, Kendiism has meant that our society has become more racialized and hateful. By embracing his ideas, our institutions increasingly will find themselves bumping up against the U.S. Constitution.

The Supreme Court already has declared racial discrimination in college admissions unconstitutional . Corporate diversity, equity, and inclusion programs also have been called into question and eventually may face a similar court test.

You can see why the Left hates the current Supreme Court so much.

Does this setback mean that our elite institutions suddenly will abandon the DEI regime? Absolutely not. Corporate America may tire of losing money, but higher education and public bureaucracies–given a blank check of taxpayer money by politicians–will continue to promote the revolution.

They’ll ignore the backlash and carry on. 

Still, we see plenty of signs that Americans are fed up with the poisonous ideas of Kendi and his fellow travelers. A critical mass of opposition is building, composed of those who’ve become contemptuous of the grift that has elevated and enriched fanatics and con men.

EXCLUSIVE: School District Censored Watchdog Group After It Exposed Teacher’s Tirade Against Parental Rights

FIRST ON THE DAILY SIGNAL—The person behind a popular X (formerly Twitter) account aimed at exposing leftist ideology in schools is threatening legal action after a Maryland school district that has become notorious for clamping down on parents restricted the account’s access to what courts have ruled constitutes a public forum.

Montgomery County Public Schools blocked the account, Inside the Classroom, days after Inside the Classroom had exposed a public school teacher who condemned the “right-wing idea of parents’ rights” as “literally just fascism.” The school district has fought in the courts to deny parents the right to opt their kids out of lessons that include LGBTQ+ books .

America First Legal, a public interest law firm that represents Inside the Classroom, sent a demand letter to the school district on Tuesday, threatening legal action if the district does not restore Inside the Classroom’s access to the district’s account.

“It isn’t enough that Montgomery County Public Schools has been trampling all over parental rights,” Ian Prior, senior adviser at America First Legal, told The Daily Signal . “Now, MCPS teachers are taking to social media to bash parents as ‘fascist’ for daring to protect their children from the radical and abusive transgender agenda.”

“Then, MCPS hits the trifecta of bad judgment and violates the First Amendment rights of those, like Inside the Classroom, that are shining the spotlight of accountability on what is happening at our schools,” Prior added. “We look forward to MCPS taking swift action to unblock all accounts and come into compliance with the First Amendment.”

In the demand letter, Inside the Classroom notes that Montgomery County Public Schools blocked its X account shortly after the account exposed the teacher who condemned the idea of parental rights .

“Alright, we have to talk about this right-wing idea of parents’ rights. It’s literally just fascism,” the teacher said in a TikTok video Inside the Classroom shared on Feb. 10. While the teacher says she sees “educators’ role as partnering with parents,” she goes on to insist that “parents and caregivers who reject their children’s gender identities are not taking care of their children.”

“Conservatives that claim that their real concern is ‘parents’ rights’ are just trying to use a family-friendly excuse for wanting trans people to not exist,” the teacher says.

Four days after Inside the Classroom shared that video, “tagging” Montgomery County Public Schools in the post, the school district blocked Inside the Classroom’s account from accessing the school district’s X page.

While X users have the ability to block any other user, courts have ruled that the First Amendment bars government officials from doing so in certain circumstances.

The Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in Davison v. Randall (2019) that a Virginia public official violated the First Amendment by engaging in “viewpoint discrimination.” The official had banned an individual from commenting on her social media page, which the court said constitutes a public forum.

Phyllis J. Randall, chair of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors, banned Virginia resident Brian Davison from her official Facebook page, on which she allows public comments. The court ruled that the “interactive component” of a local government official’s social media page constitutes a public forum and that Randall violated the First Amendment by excluding Davison from her page due to his views.

Inside the Classroom claims in the letter that Montgomery County Public Schools is “even more culpable in its constitutional violation” than Randall had been.

“Unlike the defendant in Davison v. Randall, where the account at issue was that of an elected official, the account at issue is the official account for the entire taxpayer-funded school system,” the letter reads. “MCPS has over [122,000] followers on X, and users are able to repost, reply, and like MCPS’s posts.

MCPS’s X account consists of information related to school activities such as upcoming events, announcements, surveys, and school schedules. In fact, according to the MCPS website, social media ‘can help Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) further our mission and core values by engaging students, their parents/guardians, and the community.’”

“Given that the MCPS X account is undoubtedly a public forum, it is thus impermissible for MCPS to discriminate on the basis of viewpoint against those who engage in the interactive nature of that public forum,” the letter adds. “Here, MCPS blocked Inside the Classroom because it tagged MCPS and tweeted a video and its commentary of an MCPS teacher who compared parental rights to ‘fascism’ and stated that parents who don’t affirm their child’s claimed gender ‘are not taking care of their children.’”

Many X users interacted with Inside the Classroom’s post, mostly criticizing the teacher and Montgomery County Public Schools, and then the school district blocked Inside the Classroom.

“It is abundantly clear that MCPS was motivated to take this action by suppressing the ‘particular views taken by’ Inside the Classroom; namely, disapproval of a teacher attacking parents for not supporting ‘gender identity,’” the letter adds, citing a relevant court case.

America First Legal therefore demands , on behalf of Inside the Classroom, that MCPS cease and desist blocking Inside the Classroom on X and that any and all official MCPS or MCPS staff social media accounts cease and desist blocking users in violation of the First Amendment,” the letter concludes.
