Former vice president and Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden appears to have plagiarized large portions of his climate change plan, in an incident that provokes memories of previous plagiarism scandal that effectively ended his 1988 presidential campaign.
The Daily Caller found striking similarities between Biden’s climate change plan and those published by various green organizations. The similarities include use of the same exact phrases in at least five instances.
Carbon Capture Coalition: “Its goal is to make carbon capture, use and storage (CCUS) a widely available, cost-effective, and rapidly scalable solution to reduce carbon emissions to meet mid-century climate goals.”
Biden: “carbon capture, use, and storage (CCUS) is a rapidly growing technology that has the potential to create economic benefits for multiple industries while significantly reducing carbon dioxide emissions.”
Blue Green Alliance 2017 Senate letter: “Carbon capture and sequestration (CCS) is a rapidly growing technology that has potential to create economic benefits for multiple industries while significantly reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions.”
He went on to appear to plagiarize Vox, American Rivers, and Climate.gov.
This would not be the first time Biden raised eyebrows for plagiarism. In his 1988 presidential campaign, when he would have run against President George H.W. Bush had he secured his party’s nomination, Biden famously copied the life story and cadence of a prominent British politician’s television advertisement when delivering his closing remarks at a televised Democratic Party debate.
In 1987, when Biden was only 45, he briefly ran for the Democrat nominee for president, hoping to prevent Republican President Ronald Reagan’s Vice President George H.W. Bush from attaining the office. Unfortunately for Biden, allegations that he plagiarized an advertisement from an unsuccessful British politician, along with evidence that he lied about his college degree, led him to drop out of the primaries.
Biden first claimed that the statement was original to him, and he came up with the idea while traveling. He changed the story almost instantly, saying he borrowed some of the ideas from a British politician, but that the details reflected his life story.
Advisers to Biden’s campaign would later admit that while the speech referenced having ancestors who were coal miners, Biden had no known relatives who worked in that industry.
The somewhat less partisan media of the 1980s quickly exposed Biden’s plagiarism to the public, largely leading him to call off his fledgling campaign for president.
New York Young Republicans Call for Order After Chaos at the Capitol
Order Must be Restored
On January 6, 2020 the New York Young Republican Club issued a statement calling for an instant restoration of law and order after protests escalated at the United States Capitol.
The protests were originally in support of President Donald Trump and his efforts to challenge the results of an election marked by massive irregularities. Several protesters pushed the envelope by breaking into the Capitol and interrupting the Senate and House of Representatives proceedings.
The Republican organization issued the following statement on the incident:
Today, what we see at the United States Capitol the result of American elites permitting general malaise to foment tangible destruction. We unequivocally condemn the interruption of Senate and House of Representatives proceedings. Anyone who breached the Capitol should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law because destruction and vandalism of property cannot be permitted by any actor.
We are the party of Law and Order, and we expect citizens all to operate in accordance with these standards.
U.S. policymakers will have to take a long hard look in the mirror. The lack of leadership has created a vicious cycle of radicalization that is increasingly getting out of control. Such developments could put America’s political system on the ropes if not addressed properly.
On the Republican side, there must be a clean break during the 2022 primaries, where the overwhelming majority of incumbents should face nationalist challengers. The current leadership has clearly failed and must be replaced.
