A note to readers: this is an old post on the archive website for Promethean PAC. It was written when we were known as LaRouche PAC, before changing our name to Promethean PAC in April 2024. You can find the latest daily news and updates on Additionally, Promethean PAC has a new website at

On March 20, the same day we published the article “Worse Than a Bloodbath, Auto Industry Faces Extinction-Level Event,” Biden’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued its expected new Electronic Vehicle mandate. According to former EPA official Margo Oge, it was the “single most important climate regulation in the history of the country.” It dictates that EV sales must rise to 56% of new-car sales over 2027-2032, and plug-in hybrids rise to 13%.

This is ridiculous when you consider that EVs were only 7.6% of sales in 2023, and that their unsold inventories are now triple the average for all cars.  Most American drivers have rejected EVs for good reasons. They can’t afford them despite the government subsidies; the promised charging networks don’t exist; and EVs often become firebombs—among other problems.  Hertz CEO Stephen Scherr just resigned when his gamble on EVs backfired—he had vastly underestimated maintenance costs. No wonder that major carmakers have cut back their commitments.

As we wrote earlier, the only way that anything like the EPA’s 56% mandate could possibly happen, would be if Chinese automaker Build Your Dreams (BYD), produced their $14,000 crossover sport utility vehicle in Mexico, and sold it tariff-free into the US. Our auto industry would simply disappear. This is the “bloodbath” for American jobs which President Trump warned about, and which he would prevent as President.

But that’s not the whole story--there’s much more. As you read these words, Biden is jamming a panoply of other job-killing Green mandates onto the books, against a deadline of 60 days before the current 118th Congress adjourns around the end of this year. If Republicans win the next Congress, they can repeal any agency rules enacted during the last 60 days of the legislative session, under the Congressional Review Act. 

Thus, in January, Biden halted approvals for any new terminals to export US liquified natural gas (LNG). Over the coming days, the Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is expected to alter its Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) Standards in such a way as to force automakers to manufacture more EVs on pain of possibly billions of dollars of fines. In April, the EPA will issue a rule forcing all US coal-fired power plants to shut down by 2040, or even by 2038. 

Some or all of these job- and industry-destroying edicts will probably be struck down eventually by the Supreme Court under its “Major Questions” rule —but how much chaos and suffering, and how many deaths of despair will they cause before that happens? 

Looking over this trail of destruction, you have to ask—who is behind this? Who wants to deindustrialize the United States, as the British Empire’s 1749 Iron Act prohibited steelmaking furnaces and iron slitting mills and rolling mills in the Thirteen Colonies?

Is it the high-school and college demonstrators and the other True Believers in the Great Climate Hoax? But tell me—where did these youthful enthusiasts get the raw political power to force Biden to enact these job-killing rules—even at the cost of his reelection?

Those who demand the deindustrialization of America today are the heirs of those who demanded it in 1749—the oligarchical families of Europe, centered in London. Who founded and controls the filthy-rich so-called environmentalist organizations? Not college students, but Sir Julian Huxley, the British Privy Council, Princes Philip of Britain and Bernhard of the Netherlands, the Ford and Rockefeller Foundations and Laurance Rockefeller. This same gang now has a new generation of heirs, implementing the Anglo-Dutch oligarchy’s same imperial demands.  We beat them before, and we’ll beat them again!
