Energy Sec Admits Biden Team Won't Go by 'Past Definitions' of Infrastructure

Joe Biden’s folks have truly embarked on an Orwellian effort.

They’re literally changing the meaning of words to fit their agenda.

Take Biden’s effort to recast what a “bipartisan bill” is. According to Biden, it doesn’t mean what one would think it would mean, from the plain meaning of the words: a bill with support from both political parties. According to Biden, because he doesn’t have that support from the Republicans in Congress, now he wants “bipartisan” to mean if he, Biden, claims there is support among Republicans somewhere in America.

Biden’s now taking that ‘through the looking glass’ recasting of words to the infrastructure bill. Infrastructure no longer means what we’ve all come to expect it to mean: roads, bridges, dams, etc. Now, infrastructure pretty much means anything Biden and the Democrats think they might be able to shove into the bill. The liberal cult turns on a dime to accept this bastardization of the word.

Listen to what Biden is now claiming is “infrastructure.” Words have no meaning anymore with these characters.

Of course, he’s reading again, so he doesn’t have to think for himself. But no, that’s not infrastructure.

The Oxford Dictionary notes that infrastructure is “the basic systems and services that are necessary for a country or an organization to run smoothly, for example buildings, transport and water and power supplies.” It isn’t whatever the Democrats want to make it be to ensure their power.

As my colleague Sister Toldjah reported earlier today, Chris Christie blasted Joe Biden for not being truthful about what infrastructure really is.

But Democrats aren’t shy about admitting they’re throwing reality under the bus, as Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm revealed when she spoke to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, saying they didn’t want to use “past definitions of infrastructure.”

“This is the biggest investment in the future of America that we have seen in our lifetime,” Granholm declared. That’s how you know it’s a snow job when they start tossing around that “it’s an investment” crap.

Sounds about right on target.

Sen. Ted Cruz puts it bluntly.
