Brandon Admin Considers Executive Action On Abortion, Gas Production

Remember how Biden yammered about Trump being a dictator and an authoritarian for doing things by executive order? How’s that working out?

Bracing for the End of Roe v. Wade, the White House Weighs Executive Actions

President Biden’s top aides are weighing whether he can or should take a series of executive actions to help women in Republican-controlled states obtain abortions if the Supreme Court eliminates a woman’s right to end her pregnancy, according to senior administration officials.

Some of the ideas under consideration include declaring a national public health emergency, readying the Justice Department to fight any attempt by states to criminalize travel for the purpose of obtaining an abortion, and asserting that Food and Drug Administration regulations granting approval to abortion medications pre-empt any state bans, the officials said.

In fairness, this is mostly being done by his people, not Biden, because Joe’s typically in La La Land. Or at the beach in Delaware.

No executive order can re-establish a constitutional right. It would take an act of Congress to restore a national legal standard barring states from outlawing abortion, and proponents currently lack sufficient votes in the Senate, where Republicans can filibuster such a bill. But Mr. Biden has signaled that he wants to move on his own.

“I don’t think the country will stand for it,” Mr. Biden told the talk show host Jimmy Kimmel last week in discussing the likely end of Roe v. Wade, adding: “There’s some executive orders I could employ, we believe. We’re looking at that right now.”

Well, you just go ahead and waste the time of the DOJ.

In the past, Mr. Biden has adopted a position that his legal team warned him was unlikely to stand up in court, betting that the political benefits of his executive actions outweighed the legal risks. In August, as House Democrats urged him to reverse course on letting a pandemic-related ban on evicting renters expire, Mr. Biden unilaterally extended the measure.

The move won praise from the left, at a moment when he needed to hold his coalition together in order to advance his legislative agenda. But while Mr. Biden’s decision bought a little more time for pandemic assistance funds to reach renters, its practical impact was limited because courts, as predicted, swiftly struck it down — and his critics accused him of lawlessness.


But administration officials see other suggestions as extremely risky. One calls for Mr. Biden to invite abortion doctors to work at federal enclaves, like military bases, inside states that criminalize abortion. State prosecutors lack jurisdiction in such zones, so the federal government handles crimes there, and it is not always clear whether criminal laws at the state level apply.

Doctors might still face challenges to their state medical licenses. And while the Justice Department under Mr. Biden could decline to pursue charges as a policy matter, control of the department could flip in the 2024 presidential election, and federal prosecutors could then charge people with crimes, like abortion, retroactively.

Realistically, if a state bans abortion the feds could allow them to occur on federal property, and there is nothing a state could do. They could bring in doctors from states that allow abortion. But, then, there’s that pesky thing called the Hyde Amendment, which restricts the federal government from paying for abortions. Whomever obtained an abortion on federal property would have to pay for the entire thing, which would go beyond just the procedure. And the government would not be able to pay for travel. This all just goes to show that Democrats are crazy about abortion on demand. Perhaps if they hadn’t pushed to use it as contraception it wouldn’t have become such a problem

Biden Open to Using Cold-War Era Law to Ramp Up Gasoline Output

The White House is willing to use the same emergency wartime law it invoked to increase the production of baby formula and bolster solar manufacturing to boost the nation’s supply of gasoline.

President Joe Biden is open to using the Cold War-era Defense Production Act to increase gasoline output “and lower costs at the pump,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said during a briefing Wednesday.

“Already, the President has demonstrated his willingness to use that emergency powers to lower costs for families,” Jean-Pierre said, in response to a question about using the law to expand refining capacity. “We’re saying that the President has used it before and he’s willing to do that again.”

Jean-Pierre’s comments come as Biden asks oil refiners to take “immediate action” to increase capacity as soaring gasoline prices top more than $5 a gallon on average nationwide.

Where will this be done? Refineries are already running at close to 100% capacity.

More than 1 million barrels a day of the country’s oil refining capacity — or about 5% overall — have shut since the beginning of the pandemic.

And refineries were already closing beforehand, and not being replaced. This is what Joe wanted. Less gas. Pain at the pump.

    Abortion clinics on military bases . I would bet that a whole bunch of mooslims and chinese would like up to get in , just saying.

  3. Hairy says:

    Islam forbids abortions

    Of course in Israel legal and usually paid for by the National Health care

    The pil industry is already setting record high profits.

      Hairy: “Islam forbids abortions”

      Again Hairy discusses religion as a fuckin ashiest knowing nothing. “Islam, like other religions, places a strong emphasis on the value of human life. However, Islam is a flexible religion that seeks to preserve life, but at times permits abortion.

      One cannot “permit” something while “forbidding”it unless you’re a leftist tool unable to define what a woman is yet claim to be one.

      FJB and his moron followers.

    We gotta get this guy out of office before he destroys everything. We can’t wait much longer. He is doing exactly what he said he would do – shutting down our fossil fuel industries. He doesn’t seem to care that our present way of life depends on those resources, and right now we have nothing to replace them with. I am convinced he does not give a good goddamn about any of us… or the grief and pain he is causing. He is proving himself to be a greenie to the max- and to hell with the consequences. He and all his cronies need to be shown the door, the sooner the better for us all. The elites running our government behind the scenes thru this senile puppet need to be exposed, defanged, tried for their treasonous activities, and then exposed to the justice they so fully deserve.

      Biden has picked up the torch from Obama and is doing everything in his power to destroy the country. Biden does not even know what a Greene is. Obama acted like a foreign agent who had grabbed control of our country and Biden is doing the same. This fits right in with the Dem agenda and the Republicans are just going through the motions to get a pay check. We are screwed. FJB.

    ExxonMobil response to Brandon:

    Specific to refining capacity in the U.S., we’ve been investing through the downturn to increase refining capacity to process U.S. light crude by about 250,000 barrels per day – the equivalent of adding a new medium-sized refinery. We kept investing even during the pandemic, when we lost more than $20 billion and had to borrow more than $30 billion to maintain investment to increase capacity to be ready for post-pandemic demand.

    In the short term, the U.S. government could enact measures often used in emergencies following hurricanes or other supply disruptions — such as waivers of Jones Act provisions and some fuel specifications to increase supplies. Longer term, government can promote investment through clear and consistent policy that supports U.S. resource development, such as regular and predictable lease sales, as well as streamlined regulatory approval and support for infrastructure such as pipelines.

    Bwaha! Lolgf

    Let’s see. Isn’t rule by fiat one of the hallmarks of the left’s heroes? You remember, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, Mao, and Castro? If the Constitution or Supreme Court isn’t to your liking, then simply issue your own edict.
    Appears we are heading into historic territory.

    Both ideas for EOs are unconstitutional. But then, that’s never stopped the commies before.
    Also.. WE ARE NOT AT WAR!!!!111!!!1!!!!!!

    We are immorally funding a proxy war, but WE are NOT at war.
    So, to nationalize an industry,.. even if we were at war, is something this nation will not meekly settle for.
    This is a very bad slippery slope that will end badly.

    And now what I’m reading is that Biden may propose to allow public access to military bases to murder their babies there. State-sanctioned barbarism using the military
