'Off the rails': Biden puts bull's-eye on another 'threatening' appliance

Joe Biden has launched a new “green” battlefront against yet another appliance.

The Washington Examiner noted that his administration earlier attacked natural gas stoves in homes as threats to the environment.

As recently as this week, the fight was “reignited,” according to the report, as two federal agencies confirmed they are considering regulations that would, in essence, ban them.

“Instead of working to lower food prices for families and lessening inflation, the Biden administration’s priority is to target as many as 40% of Americans and arbitrarily ban their gas stoves,” charged Heritage Action Executive Director Jessica Anderson. “Biden’s Department of Energy has weaponized the federal rulemaking process to push a radical Green New Deal agenda that is neither affordable for American families nor based in science.”

And now a report in the Washington Free Beacon documents the Biden campaign against washing machines.

The report explained, “When Cincinnati firefighter Ed Wallace bought a high efficiency Whirlpool washing machine, he came to regret the decision almost immediately. The machine used less water – not enough to clean Wallace’s work clothes – and his colleagues at the firehouse quickly took notice. ‘I walked past my guys and they say, ‘Dude, you stink!’ Wallace said. ‘I smelled myself, and yeah, that’s me stinking.'”

It’s because of Biden’s push for regulations that would set “standards” for washers that would limit the water used.

Because, of course, that’s needed to “confront the global climate crisis,” the report said.

“Those mandates would force manufacturers to reduce cleaning performance to ensure their machines comply, leading industry giants such as Whirlpool said in public comments on the rule. They’ll also make the appliances more expensive and laundry day a headache – each cycle will take longer, the detergent will cost more, and in the end, the clothes will be less clean, the manufacturers say,” the Free Beacon reported.

The report noted the “latest” attack, since Biden’s plans for gas stoves would “effectively ban half of all gas stoves on the U.S. market from being sold.”

And then there are those pending rules for refrigerators, coming as soon as 2027.

The Heritage Foundation’s Travis Fisher reacted.

“When you’re squeezing all you can out of the efficiency in terms of electricity use and water … you by definition either make the appliance worse or slower,” Fisher said. “Why are we so focused on the energy output, as opposed to if it’s helping me wash my clothes? That standard has kind of gone off the rails.”

One issue is that consumers, with machines that no longer adequately clean clothes, likely would choose to run them through twice, eliminating any “green” benefit.

And, according to the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers, the washing machine rules would hurt low-income households the most.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Long the world’s most Christian nation, America today is being taken over by a new “official” national religion, one being imposed on the entire populace by every major societal institution, from government, media and big tech, to academia, entertainment and business.

This new state religion is Wokeism. “Going woke” conjures up visions of someone claiming to be acutely sensitive (“awake”) to “systemic social and political injustice.” And not just alleged bigotry against blacks, but toward every other “minority” as well, from LGBT folk – especially everything transgender and “nonbinary” – to “undocumented immigrants.” All of them, being VICTIMS, intrinsically more virtuous than the shameful oppressor class: primarily heterosexual white males.

This new “woke” consciousness has turned America upside-down – from the nationwide Antifa and Black Lives Matter riots in 2020, to tearing down of historic monuments, to demanding multi-million-dollar reparation payments for blacks, to appointing transgenders as top government officials, to rampant reverse discrimination in every area of life, to the U.S. military imposing mandatory “diversity training” and transgender pronoun use on all personnel, causing recruitment to disastrously plummet.

Yet there is hope. Being “saved” – which in Wokeism is called being “woke” – is largely a matter of worshipping victimhood by becoming an “ally” and “defender” of all the many victim classes, and a determined enemy of the straight white male oppressor class. Thus, “joining the righteous” as an ally – even if one is cursed to be a straight white male – opens the door mercifully for salvation, even to the most wretched.

That is the power of the religion of Wokeism. And it’s explored as never before in the February 2023 issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine. If you’ve ever wondered, for example, exactly how the most radical elements in American society are successfully pressuring the biggest corporations into adopting the most outrageous and immoral policies imaginable, even when doing so permanently damages and devalues the company, the stunning answers are in this issue of Whistleblower, titled “WOKEISM: AMERICA’S OFFICIAL STATE RELIGION.”
