We now know that the Biden Administration is prone to “Ready, Shoot, Aim.” We can see this “Boneheaded” policy at work daily on our Southern Border, in our rising fuel prices and inflation.
Now, we learn of another “Boneheaded” policy that Biden plans to introduce to the United States — Relying on China as the primary source for the rare earth minerals needed in the construction of batteries for our electric vehicle fleet.
Let’s take an in depth look at what all of this means for the US economy and Bonehead Biden’s New Green Deal! On May 25th, Reuters informed us that “Biden will reportedly rely on other countries for electric-vehicle metals” …
This announcement comes as a blow to US miners because in October of 2020, as reported by Reuters,
“Joe Biden’s campaign has privately told U.S. miners it would support boosting domestic production of metals used to make electric vehicles, solar panels and other products crucial to his climate plan,”
according to three sources familiar with the matter, in a boon for the mining industry. The article goes on to say:
“The U.S. Democratic presidential candidate also supports bipartisan efforts to foster a domestic supply chain for lithium, copper, rare earths, nickel and other strategic materials that the United States imports from China and other countries, the sources said.
But, like so many other promises made by Bonehead Joe, this is not to be the case at all. You see, this week it was reported in the Washington Examiner:
the Biden administration, in a move to appease environmentalists, would focus on building a domestic industry to process critical minerals rather than exploring opportunities to mine in the U.S.
See what he has done here — rather than mining for the minerals here in the US — and we do have them — Bonehead Joe has now decided that we will only assemble the batteries from materials that are bought principally from China.
“Relying on foreign allies for critical minerals supply instead of mining domestically would be an “irresponsible” and “dangerous” policy for the Biden administration to pursue, a top lithium executive says. That’s a false choice. We need to have both. We need to have production, and we need to have processing in the United States,”
James Calaway, who is the chairman of the board of lithium mining company Ioneer, told the Washington Examiner.
“Those go together and that’s the most environmentally friendly way to do it.”
So let’s review — Clearly, the pandemic has taught us nothing about relying on China as a source of anything critical to the US economy like medicines and now rare earth minerals.
If China gets a burr under its saddle about something, oh let’s say for the sake of discussion, such as the origins of the Corona Virus or paying reparations to the world for killing millions of people … how long would you estimate it would take them to cut off the supply of what was needed to make our automobile batteries?
So, we are now reliant on, once again, the Middle East for our fossil fuels … We are dependent on China for our battery components … We have killed the Keystone Pipeline and drilling for oil in the Arctic … and NOW, we are going to stick it to all of those miners who thought they were going to have good paying jobs mining the crucial minerals for the New Green Deal.
So, once again, Americans will be subordinated to the dictates of China —
