Biden Moving to Fund Foreign Mining Projects

Joe Biden continues to send our money overseas for something that could be done here in the United States for far less money.

I am, of course, talking about the funding of fossil fuel projects in countries other than our own.

A new report found that the Biden administration is looking at funding 12 critical mining projects while the EPA is suggesting halting a mining project in Alaska that is worth billions to the state.

Killing American Jobs

The American job market could be exploding right now with mining and fossil fuel jobs.

Biden wants to make sure he gets to brag about low emissions, so instead of simply approving projects in the United States, he is blocking them, then funding projects in other countries with our tax dollars.

Minnesota Rep. Pete Stauber, the top Republican on the Natural Resources Energy and Mineral Subcommittee, stated, “Joe Biden continues to put foreign jobs over American jobs. This activist Administration is pushing an energy transition, which requires minerals.”

The statement came after the Under Secretary of State for Economic Growth Energy and the Environment Jose Fernandez confirmed to Axios that the administration is thinking about funding “around a dozen” mining, mineral processing, and recycling projects overseas.

Minnesota and Alaska have both recently been snubbed on projects that would fit under this umbrella, dealing critical blows to these economies.

Stauber stated, “We have an abundance in the United States, including in the Duluth Complex in my district which alone contains 95% of America’s nickel, 88% of our cobalt, and more than a third of our copper.

“For political reasons, the Biden Administration won’t allow domestic mining.”

The two projects that the EPA is blocking would have given decades of employment to these states, but Joe would apparently rather provide jobs to other countries than to American citizens.
