President Biden has revoked a Trump-era executive order that sought to keep foreign countries and companies out of America’s bulk power systems – principally entities associated with the Chinese Communist Party – as part of his “Executive Order on Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis.”
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.

USCCP, a vassal state of Red China.
Xi Biden is a wholly owned subsidiary of the CCP.

I wonder what is going to happen within “90 days” of the suspension? This is going to happen fast.
They know they have to seal it up before the mid-terms.
If it was not absolutely clear who/what JoHo is working for it is now.
It is not the US.
Leave Texas’s Power Grid Alone. (we have our own) It works fine.
What could go wrong?
Built up over several years, hidden from view.
Not that he’s beholden to the Chinese government or anything.
Per Forrest Gump: “Stupid is as stupid does”.
He’ll give them the ‘football’ if they promise to be nice.
And he is moving at warp speed.
Has anyone heard from the republicans about this.....didn’t think so!
weaking USA and making us more dependent on hostile countries like Communist China with this exec order (and like Saudi Arabia with his exec order halting the energy importation pipeline from Canada)
USA has to be brought to its knees (and our economy and jobs ruined)
per the DemoCommieNazi agenda..
Biden is merely their front man, puppet...in getting us pushed back down to our knees
Wish I knew if that was true of Oklahoma. Will have to do some research on it.
