Biden to create Civilian Climate Corp (CCC) to fight global warming
[Breitbart] President Joe Biden plans to create a New Deal-style "Civilian Climate Corps" to mobilize "a new, diverse generation of patriotic Americans" for the battle against climate change.

On Wednesday, Biden unveiled a flurry of executive actions his administration planned to undertake to "tackle the climate crisis at home and abroad." The president, who campaigned for the White House last year on a platform "environmental justice," argued the actions were necessary if the United States had any hopes of leading a "global response" to the climate crisis.

"Just like we need a unified national response to Covid-19 [coronavirus], we desperately need a unified national response to the climate crisis because there is a climate crisis," Biden told reporters at the White House when signing the executive orders into effect.

To help implement the unified national response, Biden is proposing the creation of a civilian climate corps. The program, based on the poverty-relief programs of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal, will focus on employing individuals to work on energy-efficient infrastructure and conservation programs.

The "Civilian Climate Corps Initiative [will] put a new generation of Americans to work conserving and restoring public lands and waters, increasing reforestation, increasing carbon sequestration ... and addressing the changing climate," a policy brief prepared by the White House reads.

Last year, while running for the White House, Biden embraced the idea of a civilian climate corps. The proposal was one of several that came from a unity task force Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) set up after the conclusion of the Democratic presidential primaries. At the time, Biden also proposed spending upwards of $2 trillion dollars over his term in office to address climate change.

And if Elon wants to see fundamentally broken, he should look at the unmanned aerial service (drones) section of the FAA. What Amazon wants, they get. Hobbyists and those finding other ways to use drones commercially? They may as well not exist.

McCarthy to House Republicans: 'Cut this crap out’ and stop infighting
[CBS] House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy warned his members to stop the public bickering within the conference if they want to effectively push back on the Biden administration and win back the majority in 2022, a congressional aide tells CBS News.

His blunt message to his colleagues on Wednesday's phone call: "Cut this crap out."

The warning comes as several members within the conference are organizing an effort to oust the number three House Republican, Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney, from her position as conference chairwoman. Cheney voted to impeach then-President Trump and angered many Republicans by releasing a statement the day before her vote outlining her position — which was later quoted by several House Democrats during the floor debate.

Republican Sens. Mitt Romney of Utah, Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, Ben Sasse of Nebraska and Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania.

Toss in Senator Mitch McConnell, Kentucky and the Pubs have a RINO problem. We know who the Dems are. We know they are consistent in presenting a unified bloc. The RINOS are unpredictable and are likely to stab you in the back. Trump knows, he campaigned for some of them.

There may be a few more that aren't included in the list.

Plugs begins creation of committee to PACK the Supreme Court
[Right Scoop] Biden has officially begun the creation of a so-called bipartisan committee which will be used an excuse to increase the number of seats on the Supreme Court — a radical proposition to be sure:
POLITICO — The Biden administration is moving forward with the creation of a bipartisan commission to study reforms to the Supreme Court and the federal judiciary.

The commission will be housed under the purview of the White House Counsel’s office and filled out with the behind-the-scenes help of the Biden campaign’s lawyer Bob Bauer. Its specific mandate is still being decided. But, in a signal that the commission is indeed moving ahead, some members have already been selected, according to multiple people familiar with the discussions.

The White House declined to comment. But a source familiar with the discussion expects between nine and 15 members total to be appointed to the commission.

Here’s the three chosen for the committee thus far, which is clearly in its beginning states:

WH Memorandum Condemns References to so-called 'China Virus'
[The White House] Advancing inclusion and belonging for people of all races, national origins, and ethnicities is critical to guaranteeing the safety and security of the American people. During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, inflammatory and xenophobic rhetoric has put Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) persons, families, communities, and businesses at risk.

The Federal Government must recognize that it has played a role in furthering these xenophobic sentiments through the actions of political leaders, including references to the COVID-19 pandemic by the geographic location of its origin. Such statements have stoked unfounded fears and perpetuated stigma about Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders and have contributed to increasing rates of bullying, harassment, and hate crimes against AAPI persons. These actions defied the best practices and guidelines of public health officials and have caused significant harm to AAPI families and communities that must be addressed.

Plugs Commerce Secretary Nominee Suggests They Might Break a Pretty Important Campaign Promise
[Red State] There has been a lot of news dropping today.

But there’s one thing that’s incredibly important not to miss.

Remember how Joe Biden insisted that he wouldn’t be raising taxes on the middle class? That ultimately his ’plan’ was only going to hit the people making over $400,000, who needed to "pay their fair share" and you ordinary Americans weren’t going to be hit?

You knew that was a lie, right? Anyone with any sense, anyone who has been watching Democrats for years should know that was a lie. It was only just a matter of time before they admit, woefully of course, that you shouldn’t have read their lips, that all you had to do was use your common sense to know they couldn’t fund all the programs they’re talking about without touching everyone.

So now let’s look at what Biden’s Commerce Secretary nominee just admitted to, because sure as shooting, we are definitely going to be revisiting this question more in the future.

We reported on the first lie/broken campaign promise here, promising a $2000 check to people if they voted for the Democrats for Senate in Georgia.

We’re already seeing the damage that Biden’s climate policies are doing to the energy industry and by extension to all of us when the raised prices hit.

But now there’s more we can chalk up to the Democrats’ climate approach, according to Townhall.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) asks Gina Raimondo, the Commerce nominee who has also been the Governor of Rhode Island, what she thinks about raising gas taxes or other taxes on the poorest Americans in order to pay for Biden’s climate policies. So now if she’s really holding to Biden’s promises during the campaign, her response should be, "Well, we’re only going to touch the folks over $400,000," right? But no, she goes on to say that they were going to have to "balance interests" in deciding what to do about it.

Generals Tell Trump, 'We Got Your Back!'
[Real News.com] In his first 48 hours in office, President Biden eviscerated many of Trump’s noted accomplishments: He suspended construction on the border wall; he rejoined the Paris Accords; he signed executive orders mandating that law-abiding American citizens wear potentially dangerous facemasks while on federal property and on public transportation. And, among other things, he slashed America’s defense budget, which will likely cripple the nation’s defense readiness status.

And military generals are fuming mad.

Two—US Army General James Dickenson, Commander, US Space Force, and Air Force General Glen VanHerck, Commander of NORAD—contacted Biden on Thursday to question his motives for drastically slashing their budgets.

Reader Caution: I have NOT been able to confirm this story, however:

China Joe's handlers will likely resurrect the Obama model and program of social spending. Money for reparations aka needs based Guaranteed Minimum Incomes (GMI) will have to come from somewhere. The Administration has already placed a bull's eye on Foreign Military Sales. I would also look for the initiation of military base realignments and closures (BRAC) similar to those undertaken in the early days of the Obama administration.

CTU holds firm: Lightfoot concedes, postpones school opening
FILE - In this Monday, Jan. 11, 2021, file photo, teachers Adrienne Thomas, left, and Irene Barrera set up their computers and materials for their virtual classes outside of Suder Montessori Magnet Elementary School in solidarity with pre-K educators forced back into the building in Chicago. Chicago teachers ordered to schools this week ahead of students planned to ignore district orders over coronavirus safety concerns, setting the stage for a work stoppage in the nation's third-largest school district, according to a union email circulated Tuesday, Jan. 26, 2021.
