Democrats looking for a dictator...the slippery path to serfdom

Remember back when the left kept yapping about how President Donald Trump secretly wanted to be a dictator, based on nothing but fearmongering? 

Now, these same people are urging President Joe Biden to ignore Congress and the Supreme Court and enact sweeping powers over the country. In other words, to be a dictator.

Their reason? The weather. Seriously.

Democrats are using the latest heat wave to push Biden to declare a climate “emergency” so he can bypass the legislative branch. Biden is reportedly considering doing just that.

The left is freaking out because Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., won’t sign onto a bill that includes carbon emission mandates at a time when gasoline prices are way up, inflation is rampant, and the economy is almost certainly in a recession. Plus, the Supreme Court just tossed an attempt by the EPA to control the nation’s power grid in the name of fighting “climate change.”

On Monday, Sen. Jeff Merkley, D-Oregon, told reporters “There is probably nothing more important for our nation and our world than for the United States to drive a bold, energetic transition in its energy economy from fossil fuels to renewable energy.”

Merkley said time is of the essence because it’s not clear when Democrats will be able to pass a climate bill. 

“Am I concerned that it will be a decade before we have a climate majority? I am damn concerned about that,” he said. “We have to use every tool at our disposal, and certainly the tool right now is bold, intense executive action.”

He wasn’t finished. Merkley also declared war on the Supreme Court. “We cannot sit still for fear of what the Court might do,” he said. “Let’s pursue every option and if a few of them are struck down, they’re struck down, we’ll double down on the rest.”
