In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Biden using national security law to advance domestic agenda

Who needs Congress? President Biden has a phone, a pen, and the DPA.

According to the Washington Times:

President Biden’s use of the Defense Production Act to promote the renewable energy industry, increase vaccine production and resolve a national baby formula shortage has angered critics who say he’s overstepped his authority and is increasingly relying on a power that should be reserved for emergencies.

Republicans and other critics of the president say Mr. Biden has used the act for his own political salvation, amid record-high energy prices and other crises such as the formula shortage, which they believe are caused in part by Mr. Biden’s policies.

“He’s using it excessively, he’s using it in a fashion that’s not going to help, and he’s using it to fix crises that he created,” Rep. Chris Stewart, Utah Republican, told The Washington Times.

The law, passed in 1950 at the start of the Korean War, provides the president “a broad set of authorities to influence domestic industry in the interest of national defense,” according to the Congressional Research Service.

The Biden administration announced on June 6 it had invoked the DPA “to accelerate the domestic production of clean energy.”
