Biden Headed For Confrontation With Congress As Dems Move To Push Through ‘Green New Deal’

November 9, 2020

Bloomberg recently reminded us that despite all of Joe Biden’s promises about comity and “healing”, a divided Congress could deprive a Biden Administration of the votes it needs to pass the kind of broad, sweeping fiscal stimulus that the market – thanks in part to the pleas of Bill Dudley and other central banker-types – has come to expect. Biden has promised to provide this fiscal stimulus (which would in theory deliver a badly needed financial shot in the arm to the consumers who are most likely to spend, rather than save, their money), along with delivering on the infrastructure package that alluded Trump, and securing some wins for the “Green New Deal” – one of the top priorities for lefties like AOC and Elizabeth Warren who will almost certainly have an outsize voice once Biden occupies the White House – along with expanded public child care.

All of these agenda items have been couched as do-or-die priorities by certain ‘Green New Deal’ types who accuse the GOP of just “taking and taking and taking” from the poor. …

Biden and his team are campaigning on dumping trillions more in stimulus after the historic runup in deficit spending seen earlier this year.

To fund Biden’s proposals, the administration would be adding to the national debt while taking advantage of historically low interest rates. Biden spent decades in government warning about the dangers of budget deficits. But as president he’ll take over one of the biggest in U.S. history, and has signaled he’s in no rush to pare it back.

Biden has proposed raising corporate taxes to 28% from 21%, increasing income taxes for those earning more than $400,000 and taxing capital-gains earnings the same as regular income for top earners. A split Congress, though, would create high hurdles to such moves.

The campaign has outlined a $3.5 trillion economic program to fund his key goals:

Shift millions of jobs into clean energy, with the goal of cutting carbon emissions. Boost manufacturing through incentives to buy American goods and support for high-tech research. Expand the availability of care for the youngest and oldest Americans, including universal preschool for three- and four-year-olds. He’s also promised to address inequalities through his plan, saying he would provide aid for minority small-businesses owners. He’s voiced support for a $15 federal minimum hourly wage, equal gender pay and expanded sick leave.

Those reading the description of Biden’s proposals included above can probably figure out that what Biden is proposing isn’t just some kind of economic band-aid: if enacted, it would be the most expansive new government spending programs since the New Deal. https://www.zerohedge.com/political/biden-headed-confrontation-congress-dems-move-push-through-green-new-deal

Jim Rickards posted the the following at his Daily Reckoning site:

Life Under Biden

It’s becoming increasingly evident that Joe Biden is likely to win the election. … It’s not over yet, but everything would have to break right for Trump if he’s to win.

He’s also issued a number of legal challenges, but they’re unlikely to overturn the results in any state.

Were there instances of voter fraud in states like Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan? It’s highly likely, but it would be very difficult to prove in court that they substantially impacted the outcome.

So it appears right now that Joe Biden will be the next president of the United States, unless Trump can somehow run the table or succeed in the courts. …

Biden is running for president in name only. He has never been that bright. He has accomplished little in his almost fifty years in public service. He is physically frail and clearly suffering acute cognitive decline.

If Joe Biden does win, he’ll be 78 years old when sworn in and 82 years old at the end of his first term. Both marks are the oldest in U.S. history for a president. Some individuals are still sharp in their late 70s. Biden is not one of them.

The result is that Biden will never be president de facto. With Trump out of the picture, Democrats wouldn’t need him anymore. Steps would be taken at some point to remove him from office on the grounds of mental incapacity under the Twenty-fifth Amendment. Nancy Pelosi recently proposed legislation to set up a commission to do just that as prescribed by the U.S. Constitution.

But while he remains in office, who will be the real president in a Biden administration? There are three camps contending for power:

The first camp is the Biden family led by Joe Biden’s wife Dr. Jill Biden, his son Hunter Biden, and Joe Biden’s brothers Jim Biden and Frank Biden. These are the individuals who have been enriched through association with Joe Biden by using or selling access to Biden’s power to win lucrative investment management roles, consulting engagements, construction contracts and other remunerative pursuits.

The Biden family will want to keep Joe in power (with Jill Biden pulling the strings) in order to keep their shakedown operation intact and avoid scrutiny.

The second camp is led by Kamala Harris and those who control her, including the Obama crew and the Resistance. If Biden is removed under the Twenty-Fifth Amendment, Harris becomes Acting President. If Biden resigns under threat of removal, Harris becomes the president.

She would be a front for the Obamas and Valerie Jarrett who would operate through a cabinet consisting of Obama family retainers including Susan Rice, Samantha Power, Sally Yates and Eric Holder.

The third camp is led by the extreme left wing of the party including Bernie Sanders, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (and The Squad), Elizabeth Warren and radical organizations such as BLM. This group is already embedded in the Biden campaign as part of a deal whereby Bernie Sanders agreed to end his primary campaign and endorse Joe Biden in exchange for Biden adopting most of the Sanders platform.

The most likely outcome is that the Obama crew and the Bernie Bros will join forces and run the Biden family off the road. …

But, it appears that the Republicans are going to retain control of the Senate. If that holds, the Democrats’ more radical legislation will never make it out of the Senate. …

So if Biden holds on and Republicans hold onto the Senate, you can expect a lot of bickering and a lot of gridlock. 11/06/20 https://dailyreckoning.com/life-under-biden/

One reason that I have been using the term Biden-Harris Administration is that I do not believe that Joe Biden has the capacity to truly function as President of the United States. Even if he does at times, he simply does not look to have the physical and mental ability at this stage of his life. And he is not even in office yet. I expect someone other than Joe Biden to really pull the strings even if he is the President of the United States. He may well be pushed aside via the 25th amendment, illness, or other means.

As far as gridlock goes, that may increase protests and the divide in the USA–that will not end well (cf. Matthew 12:25).

But the ‘gridlock’ would not be complete.


Presuming the Biden-Harris Administration does get in, some items that the Republicans either agree on or do not care enough to stop will happen.

Such as?

1) Increased debt is one of them.

The total amount of the official debt of the USA has increased about as much in the 4 years of the Trump Administration as it did the 8 years of the Obama Administration.

Even Barack Obama referred to the debt increases as “unsustainable” early in his first presidential term.

Yet, both Republicans and Democrats have continued to “sustain” such increases.

According to biblical prophecy, this will end in destruction (cf. Habakkuk 2:6-8).

2) While the “Green New Deal” per se may not be implemented, Joe Biden is committed to having the USA part of the Paris Climate Accords that the USA officially pulled out of last week. This will put certain obligations, similar to the “Green New Deal” upon the USA to implement. Furthermore, once the Biden-Harris Administration controls the US Environmental Protection Agency, expect it to issue regulations that will be consistent with the “Green New Deal.”

Now, I am NOT saying that all associated with the Paris Climate Accords or the Green New Deal are wrong (they are not), but aspects of them will impact the economy of the USA as well as have certain societal consequences. Some of which may incite protests and civil unrest.

3) Republicans have shown that they are quite willing to support aspects of the LGBTQ agenda. Hence, do not expect them to stop all enabling of that agenda that the Biden-Harris Administration would push.

This will end in God’s judgment and death (cf. Romans 1:18-32).

4) Joe Biden, and even more so Kamala Harris, are strident supports of abortion. So much so, that they are willing to overrule religious rights.

Here is something from the official Joe Biden campaign website:

  • Stop state laws violating Roe v. Wade. Biden will work to codify Roe v. Wade, and his  Justice Department will do everything in its power to stop the rash of state laws that so blatantly violate Roe v. Wade.
  • Restore federal funding for Planned Parenthood. The Obama-Biden Administration fought Republican attacks on funding for Planned Parenthood again and again. As President, Biden will reissue guidance specifying that states cannot refuse Medicaid funding for Planned Parenthood and other providers and reverse the Trump Administration’s rule preventing these organizations from obtaining Title X funds.
  • Just as the Obama-Biden Administration did, rescind the Mexico City Policy (also referred to as the global gag rule) that President Trump reinstated and expanded. This rule currently bars the U.S. federal government from supporting important global health efforts — including for malaria and HIV/AIDS — in developing countries simply because the organizations providing that aid also offer information on abortion services.
  • Restore the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate in place before the U.S. Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision. The recent U.S. Supreme Court decision makes it easier for the Trump-Pence Administration to continue to strip health care from women — attempting to carve out broad exemptions to the Affordable Care Act’s commitment to giving all women free access to recommended contraception. Biden will restore the Obama-Biden policy that existed before the Hobby Lobby ruling: providing an exemption for houses of worship and an accommodation for nonprofit organizations with religious missions. The accommodation will allow women at these organizations to access contraceptive coverage, not through their employer-provided plan, but instead through their insurance company or a third-party administrator.

Health Care Protections for All 

    • LGBTQ+ women. The Obama-Biden Administration ensured that insurance companies could no longer increase premiums merely due to someone’s gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity. But President Trump rolled back these basic health care protections for LGBTQ+ Americans. As President, Biden will defend the rights of all people — regardless of gender, sexual orientation, or gender identity — to have access to quality, affordable health care free from discrimination. He will also ensure coverage for comprehensive care, including covering care related to transitioning such as gender confirmation surgery. In addition, he will ban so-called “conversion therapy.” https://joebiden.com/womens-agenda/

Notice the following condemnations in the New Testament:

15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 Destruction and misery are in their ways;
17 And the way of peace they have not known.”
18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.” (Romans 3:15-18)

Abortion sheds blood and causes destruction and misery. The New Testament supports “conversion therapy” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11; see also The Bible Condemns Homosexuality), but the Biden-Harris team is opposed to the God of the Bible on this–hence it should be clear that: “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

Now, does this mean that I think all that a Biden-Harris Administration will do is wrong?


But whether or not you cared much for Donald Trump, neither he nor the potential Biden-Harris Administration are the answer.

America is getting closer to its day of final reckoning.

Destruction will come to the USA (Habakkuk 2:6-8; Daniel 11:39).

As Jesus taught, pray for God’s Kingdom to come (Matthew 6:10).
