That Didn't Take Long: Biden Interior Department Welcome Email Pushes Racial Politics



Van der Heide is your central casting leftist. She hates Christopher Columbus, Mt. Rushmore, Donald Trump, and American energy independence — not necessarily in that order. She is the sort of appointment that reveals the lie of Biden’s play as a bipartisan unifier.

Her email to Department employees lays out what matters now at the Interior Department:

Lastly, I am eager to welcome a strong Biden-Harris team to the department over the coming days, weeks, and months. The administration is striving to appoint people that are talented, experienced, and look like America. I will communicate to each appointee that we must carry out our work with the same core values that I know you all bring to public service: honor, integrity, heart, and professionalism.
Today in America, there are significant and converging challenges facing our nation: the pandemic, the economy, climate change, and systemic racism. I look forward to working with you to address these and to serve the American public. Thank you again for your service to this nation.
Here we go. Under Trump, it was America First. Now, it’s the territories and identity politics.

First and foremost—thank you. You are the backbone of this Department. Thank you for all you do as public servants to uphold trust and treaty responsibilities to Native Americans and Alaska Natives; to work with our Native Hawaiian communities and U.S. Territories.

Joe Biden Calls for DOJ to Resume Obama-Era ‘Slush Fund’ Payouts to Left-Wing Groups


“When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people — not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power,” Sessions said in 2017.

In 2017, Congress took aim at the “slush fund,” which incentivized corporate payments to left-wing groups such as La Raza.

Former Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) sponsored a bill called the “Stop Settlement Slush Funds Act of 2017,” but the bill never came to fruition.

The Sessions Justice Department policy, however, became an agency rule that went into effect in December 2020.

The rule is now part of several federal agency actions subject to review under Biden’s upcoming executive order called, “Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis,” Fox News reported.

The Obama administration Justice Department extorted fines from major banks such as Bank of America and used them to fund left-wing groups that push the Democrat vote, according to a 2016 report from the Government Accountability Institute (GAI).

“This is a gut punch for the Canadian and Alberta economies. Sadly it is an insult directed at the United States’ most important ally and trading partner,” Kenney told a news conference.

Christy Goldfuss, an energy and environment policy expert at the liberal Center for American Progress in Washington said a major part of the Biden administration’s climate strategy is to avoid building new long-lasting oil and gas projects such as KXL.

“The more we invest in fossil fuel infrastructure, the harder it is to transition to the investments we need to make for clean energy,” said Goldfuss, who ran the Council on Environmental Quality in former President Barack Obama’s White House.

One of the most controversial Executive Orders that Biden signed “unilaterally eviscerate[d] women’s sports,” author and women’s rights activist Abigail Shrier wrote on Twitter. “Any educational institution that receives federal funding must admit biologically-male athletes to women’s teams, women’s scholarships, etc. A new glass ceiling was just placed over girls.”

The order states in part:

Every person should be treated with respect and dignity and should be able to live without fear, no matter who they are or whom they love. Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports. Adults should be able to earn a living and pursue a vocation knowing that they will not be fired, demoted, or mistreated because of whom they go home to or because how they dress does not conform to sex-based stereotypes. People should be able to access healthcare and secure a roof over their heads without being subjected to sex discrimination. All persons should receive equal treatment under the law, no matter their gender identity or sexual orientation.

CNN added that Biden also signed a Executive Order that “requires executive branch appointees to sign an ethics pledge barring them from acting in personal interest and requiring them to uphold the independence of the Department of Justice.” The order comes as Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, is under federal criminal investigation over his business dealings.

Yep, this "looks like America" seems to be a theme.
They clearly have no idea what America looks like outside of their dystopian political enclaves and celebrity filled cocktail parties. They're just checking off boxes now and rewarding operatives and lobbyists.

What did Canada expect was going to happen? We don't want their oil. Canada's going to wind up sending it to China.

So does the mask mandate have some exceptions for personal workspaces, etc? Do the folks working on base now have to wear the mask in their cubicles and in the toilet stall?

They know what Democrat cities look, like and that's what got them elected so they make his Administration look that way.
Filled with incompetence and stupidity.

On ‘Day One,’ Joe Biden’s Transgender Executive Order Destroys Women’s Rights


For example, the first paragraph of the order contains the following: “Children should be able to learn without worrying about whether they will be denied access to the restroom, the locker room, or school sports.”

So, what does this mean? This means that children — defined by the federal government by anyone who is younger than age 18 or who is not an emancipated minor — have the “right” to decide which restroom or locker room they use. What does this mean, in raw actuality? Girls who believe they are boys can enter bathrooms and locker rooms designated for boys and, more worryingly, boys who believe they are girls can enter bathrooms and locker rooms designated for girls. Don’t like it? Too bad.

Cutting through the vague and evasive language of the executive order, this means that — just by claiming that they are a girl — boys will have access to an enclosed and previously private space where girls can undress. Not only that, they will have the supposed right to undress in front of these girls, forcing them into — at best — an uncomfortable situation, and — at worst — a dangerous one.

Biden Signs Order Requiring Travelers To Wear Face Masks

The executive order, titled Promoting COVID-19 Safety In Domestic And International Travel, calls on various cabinet agencies to use existing authority to implement the new mandate on applicable methods of public transportation, which can include at airports, on commercial aircraft, on trains, on public maritime vessels and ferries, and on intercity bus services. However, it’s not clear how the Biden administration plans to enforce the mandate.

White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain previously said in a memo that Biden would be implementing an interstate-travel mask mandate at the start of his term, in addition to requiring masks on federal property, reported the Associated Press. (Biden later addressed members of the media at the Lincoln Memorial while not wearing a mask himself). He has also called on Americans to wear masks for the next 100 days as part of a “100 Day Masking Challenge.”

According CNBC News, major U.S. airlines already require travelers to wear face masks when flying, and airports already require face masks as well. Even before Biden’s order, more than 2,500 people had already been prohibited from flying over policy violations.

Under Biden’s executive order, international travelers visiting will also be required to test negative for COVID-19 prior to departing for the U.S.
