REMINDER: Biden Rescinds Trump Order Banning Chinese Communist Involvement In US Power Grid

National Pulse:

The executive order, which executes key tenets of President Biden’s climate change agenda, was released on the former Veep’s first day in office.

Section 7 of the massive order, which includes the revocation of the permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline, also revokes several climate and energy-focused executive orders penned by the Trump administration.

Subpoint C notes that “Executive Order 13920 of May 1, 2020 (Securing the United States Bulk-Power System), is hereby suspended for 90 days.”

The Trump-era order sought to ban, replace, and set new criteria on bulk-power system (BPS) electric equipment coming from a foreign country or national that poses a national security threat.

“Foreign adversaries are increasingly creating and exploiting vulnerabilities in the United States bulk-power system, which provides the electricity that supports our national defense, vital emergency services, critical infrastructure, economy, and way of life. The bulk-power system is a target of those seeking to commit malicious acts against the United States and its people, including malicious cyber activities, because a successful attack on our bulk-power system would present significant risks to our economy, human health and safety, and would render the United States less capable of acting in defense of itself and its allies,” the introduction to the executive order read.

The move “prohibited any acquisition, importation, transfer, or installation of BPS electric equipment by any person or with respect to any property to which a foreign country or a national thereof has any interest, that poses an undue risk to the BPS, the security or resiliency of U.S. critical infrastructure or the U.S. economy, or U.S. national security or the security and safety of U.S. persons.”

The DOE was also tasked with identifying existing BPS electric equipment that violated the aforementioned prescription and “develop recommendations to identify, isolate, monitor, or replace this equipment as appropriate.” more here

  1. The plan is to slowly take over ownership of our entire country until occupation-by-default f debt can occur.

    Chicoms don’t want physical war if they win economically.

    Just wait until the cashiers at Walmart speak Chinese.

  2. I would like to say this:

    ChinaVirus ChinaVirus ChinaVirus ChinaVirus ChinaVirus ChinaVirus ChinaVirus ChinaVirus ChinaVirus ChinaVirus

    This fake administration is fucking insane. It is a severe and present danger to us all.

  3. The Big Guy gets 10%.

    Thanks GOP for your steadfast non-support of President Trump throughout his term in office. Without your dereliction of duty none of this would be possible.

  4. No need for them to waste an emp when they can just throw a switch. Smart move traders, hope it bites you good.

  5. How many Chinese @ocks does Biden stuffed up his a$$? He seems to be giving everything to them. So much for America first.

  6. Suspended for 90 days.

    Does that mean China has full free access to infiltrating it for 90 days or that China can ask permission to be involved in it for 90 days?

  7. This should scare the crap out of every American, forget about The Kung Fu Flu, that’s small potatoes compared to this.

  8. The Texas AG is going to need a GoFundMe account. He’s the only one in the country with the balls to fight this shit.

  9. Joe may be slipping a little from time to time but as a offensive strategist he has no equal!
    There’s even talk of him being awarded the China medal of Betrayal.

  10. This story barely touches on the vulnerability of our electronically controlled infrastructure in America. If you wish to get some idea of just how wide open to a disaster of epic proportions America is get hold of a copy of “Countdown to Zero Day” written by Kim Zetter. You will be amazed at the stupidity of our businesses and government.

  11. Just imagine what a foreign government can do to our power grid. It is almost unthinkable – plunged into darkness overnight – if it’s during wintertime, people will freeze to death. Everything will come to a complete standstill.

    And the CCP with their million man army will get warlike soon enough. China will not get Taiwan to give up without a fight. That’s when the SHTF.

    Biden will sleep through it and when he wakes up, he’ll say something like: Taiwan is a far-away country that we know little about…Let’s not jump to conclusions here…we can do business with Chairman Xi…the door is open to negotiation and I’m sure Chairman Xi is a reasonable man.

    Yeah, we’ve heard that song and dance before.
