The "wokewashing" of Biden's cabinet 

I am responding to your initial comments on the clip. You really are a sad individual

How about something coherent – like what in tarnation is that sentence about? -- cc
Actually, that’s mine. It was part of something longer on pg 1, guess you missed it. It does deserve a little explanation.

“The” is “They”, referring to the women in the video. The example is one of the many bits of poor logic where they say something they dug up from a long list of facts about a person, like the level of pollution in his district, then in the next sentence they extrapolate to saying he’s in the pocket of oil and gas money. The assumption is that the Representative of a district can have a direct impact on the total pollution in his district. Truth is, he is one vote of 435, and he is in the legislative branch, not the administrative branch that enforces the regulations.

I don’t know the guy, but I hope he is getting the position based on his knowledge of the industry and the people he knows and the familiarity with the issues.

Thanks for the clarification.

True enough, guess I haven’t been paying that much attention to this thread. Keep hoping for something interesting.

 

… And you anton, why you gotta sound like some very angry person, always looking to stick the knife in. What’s up with that?

Hi CC

Why is this top Democrat absent from the fight against toxic pollution in Cancer Alley?

Sounds like a u turn

In June 2019, Joe Biden signed No Fossil Fuel Money’s pledge to reject support from the PACs, lobbyists, and fossil fuel executives. “I work for you — not any industry,” he tweeted at the time. And during his campaign, his website promised “that Biden for President will not accept contributions from oil, gas and coal corporations or executives.”

 

Thanks for the guardian article. I had seen some of the numbers but didn’t see any point in cutting and pasting them here.

"Biden for President will not accept contributions from oil, gas and coal corporations or executives:" -- Biden

Sounds like a u turn – anton


Where are the donations from oil and gas that went to the Biden campaign? Not the ones to an appointee over a ten year period, the ones to the Biden for President campaign.

@anton People can change their minds on things. However, in Biden’s case, I will agree he was attempting to get votes, but he already had my vote for many reasons. That said, I’m sure he’s read the science on the effects of fossil fuels on the environment. Also, it’s not unusual, as of recent years, for those running for an office to reject PACs, lobbyists, and executives funding their campaigns.
