Biden and his supporters have been presenting him as the new Franklin Delano Roosevelt, but is he acting like FDR and would we want him to act like the president of long ago? Since Biden has been president for a short time, one can compare him with the first months of the Roosevelt administration. And Roosevelt’s most important program in his first year in office was the National Industrial Recovery Act, which could be compared to Biden’s Green New Deal.

According to David Gergen, CNN senior political analyst, “Though President Joe Biden is no Roosevelt, he bears some important similarities. And Biden is off to an excellent start — arguably, one of the best since Roosevelt.”

“The most obvious comparison,” says Gergen, “is of the two presidents’ records of accomplishments. Roosevelt entered office with the economy near collapse and the public mood severely depressed, and he took a series of dramatic steps to reverse course. He not only saved the country’s banks in his first week but helped to pass 15 major pieces of legislation in his first 100 days, building the foundation of the New Deal. On at least one occasion, his team introduced a major new bill in the morning, the Emergency Banking Relief Act, and had it enacted by sundown.”

The National Industrial Recovery Act (NIRA), which created the National Recovery Administration (NRA), was supposed to facilitate cooperation between the federal government and the business sector, and this presumably would stimulate the economy and pull the country out of the Depression. Under the NRA, business competitors met to develop business “codes of fair competition” that would govern prices charged for goods and services, wages paid to labor, and business practices. The proposed codes would then be reviewed for approval by government code administrators. Companies that subscribed to the NRA codes were allowed to display a Blue Eagle emblem, symbolic of cooperation with the NRA, and announcing, “NRA Member. We Do Our Part.”

Roosevelt appointed Hugh S. Johnson as Director of the NRA to administer the code-writing process and enforce what would become a huge bureaucracy of codes. Johnson admired some aspects of Italian fascism and was known to consult the book The Corporate State by Raffaello Viglione, a favorite economist of Mussolini’s. And Johnson was not alone in that view. FDR’s close adviser Rexford Tugwell wrote in his diary that Mussolini had done “many of the things which seem to me necessary.”

The NRA sought to alter the competitive market mechanism by promoting cooperation among business, labor, and government to maintain prices and wages above existing market rates, in the then-widespread belief, especially in the large business community, that excessive (“cut-throat”) competition had caused and prolonged the Depression. The belief was that such competition led to a vicious downward spiral of reduced prices and reduced wages, ultimately bringing about business failures and unemployment. As Johnson colorfully put it: “The very heart of the New Deal is the principle of concerted action in industry and agriculture under government supervision looking to a balanced economy as opposed to the murderous doctrine of savage and wolfish individualism, looking to dog-eat-dog and devil take the hindmost.” [Quoted in Arthur M. Schlesinger, The Coming of the New Deal: 1933-1935, The Age of Roosevelt, vol. 2 (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1958), p. 112.]

The legislation tried to appear to be all things to all people and ended up mired in ambiguity. While one clause exempted the proposed codes from the anti-trust laws, another forbade the codes “to permit monopolies or monopolistic practices, or to eliminate, oppress, or discriminate against small enterprises.” [Ellis W. Hawley , The New Deal and the Problem of Monopoly: A Study in Economic Ambivalence (Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press, 1966), pp. 38-50.] Once in operation, however, the NRA essentially acted as a giant cartel scheme under which the federal government attempted to enforce cartel pricing and output reductions in the economy.

During 1933, however, the NRA was flowering. There were gigantic NRA marches—the one in New York City supposedly having 1,500,000 participants. And Johnson was named the “Man of the Year” for 1933 by Time Magazine ahead of President Roosevelt.

Things, however, were rapidly going downhill. Senators Gerald Nye of North Dakota and William Borah of Idaho were the strongest critics of the NRA because they believed the codes adversely impacted small businesses. Small businesses, particularly small manufacturers, complained that large businesses used the codes to drive them out of business. Their main complaint was against price fixing set by the codes. The NRA codes set a minimum price that reflected prices charged by larger businesses. For many small businesses, especially small manufacturers, the only way to stay competitive was to charge lower prices for a good or service, but this was not allowed by the codes.

Clarence Darrow was chosen to head the review board that would investigate the impact of the codes. He was the most famous attorney in the United States, but he was not an ardent supporter of Roosevelt. Johnson would soon regret endorsing Darrow to serve on the board and he later said he made the endorsement in “a moment of total aberration.” [ Lowell Mason, Darrow vs. Johnson, 238 N. Am. Rev. 524, 525 (1934).]

Darrow declined to accept NRA staff. At a meeting with Roosevelt, the President agreed to create the board by executive order and explicitly directed the board to report directly to the President and not to Johnson. [Stephen J. Sniegoski, The Darrow Board and the Downfall of the NRA, 14 CONTINUITY 63, 72 (1990).]

ORDER IT NOW

Less than four months after it had been created, the National Recovery Review Board filed its last report on June 28, 1934. The third report had a section for conclusions the board thought important enough to emphasize. The first such conclusion was that in virtually all of the 34 codes examined “one condition has been persistent, undeniable and apparent to any impartial observation. It is this, that the code has offered an opportunity for the more powerful and more profitable interests to seize control of an industry or to augment and extend a control already obtained.” [Investigation of the National Recovery Administration: Hearings on S. Res. 79 Before the S. Comm. on Finance, 74th Cong. 298 (1935).]

Johnson would quit in anger. President Roosevelt wanted the NRA renewed for two years and sent a bill to Congress to pass the renewal. On May 27, 1935, however, while the bill was still pending, the United States Supreme Court held the National Recovery Act invalid because it unconstitutionally regulated intrastate commerce and it was an impermissible delegation of legislative authority to the president.

Now to move on to President Biden. Nicholas Kristof, a Pulitzer Prize winning author, contends in the New York Times that “Joe Biden Is Electrifying America Like F.D.R.”

And Deirdre Shelly writes in “The American Jobs Plan and the Fight for the Green New Deal” that “[we] should feel deeply proud of the power that our movement has built to make a multi-trillion dollar infrastructure plan that centers action on the climate crisis, undoing environmental injustice and racism, and creating millions of union jobs the common sense of the Democratic Party. And we shouldn’t lose sight of how much more power we must build to fully realize our vision of a Green New Deal.”

“If it’s passed, this plan would be the largest investment the federal government has made to address social and economic crises in fifty years. It’d create millions of good jobs and be the biggest investment our country has ever made in fighting the climate crisis. Still, this plan is nowhere near enough to meaningfully combat the climate crisis or transform our society and economy. To really do those things, we need at least $10 trillion in federal spending over the next decade (or $1 trillion/year), and we need to start making those investments as soon as possible.”

President Biden released his infrastructure package on April 2, 2021. “That plan would spend $2 trillion over eight years, much of it on mitigating the climate crisis. It is the first of a two-part push on an expansive array of infrastructure initiatives, green energy projects, as well as social programs that the administration refers to as ‘human infrastructure,’ that is estimated to be around $3 trillion to $4 trillion .” Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive Democrats, however, want more than double that amount that Biden has called for.

However, after expressing his support for a Green New Deal , Biden did not complain about Germany allowing Russia to send its gas and oil through its Nord Stream 2 pipeline to NATO Ally Germany. In contrast, Trump, who was not for green energy, had wanted to prevent Russia from having that pipeline to Germany for security reasons.

Biden’s decision was based on maintaining positive relations with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Merkel supports the project pointing out that Russian gas already flows into Europe along other routes. And Biden is using his presidential authority to waive sanctions on the two countries under a national interest exemption.

Now, one might wonder why Germany would want gas and oil if it could rely on green energy. And Germany thought it could do this over time as it began in 2000 to decarbonize its energy supply. This was referred to in German as “Energiewende”– a German word for “energy transition.” Germany has been called “the world’s first major renewable energy economy.”

However, this was not working well, its emissions having flat-lined since 2009. But the coup de grasse took place during the frigidly cold winter of 2020-2021. Germany turned back to coal and natural gas as millions of its solar panels were blanketed by snow and ice The freezing weather also rendered its 30,000 wind turbines to idleness. Here is how one scientist explained it: “With this supply of wind and photovoltaic energy, it’s between 0 and 2 or 3 percent – that is de facto zero. You can see it in many diagrams that we have days, weeks, in the year where we have neither wind nor PV. Especially this time for example – there is no wind and PV, and there are often times when the wind is very miniscule. These are things, I must say, that have been physically established and known for centuries, and we’ve simply totally neglected this during the green energies discussion.”

Germans paid a large price for this program. For example, the average cost of electricity for German households has doubled since 2000. By 2019, households had to pay 34 U.S. cents per kilowatt-hour, compared to 22 cents per kilowatt-hour in France and 13 cents in the United States, according to data from IEEE Spectrum.

The fact of the matter is that “no amount of marketing could change the poor physics of resource-intensive and land-intensive renewables. Solar farms take 450 times more land than nuclear plants, and wind farms take 700 times more land than natural gas wells, to produce the same amount of energy.”

While President Biden has pledged to move away from fossil fuels and has stated that he would not support oil development on federal lands, the Biden administration has recently defended in the U.S. District Court for Alaska ConocoPhillip’s planned Willow oil and gas project, which was approved under then-president Trump. The project has strong support of Alaska officials which includes Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski, who is seen as a potential swing vote for Biden in his future attempts to push through his policies in an evenly divided Senate. The Willow project, designed to extract more than 100,000 barrels of oil a day for the next 30 years would be one of the first major new oil projects in Alaska in years.

The Biden administration didn’t explain how its stance fitted in with its climate policies, but it said in filing that greenhouse gas emissions considerations and the effects the project would have on “fish, caribou and polar bear habitat” had been sufficiently taken into account when the project was approved.

Climate activists had provided Biden with money and effort in his successful run for president. In January, President Joe Biden signed an order to rejoin the Paris Accord and revoked federal permits for the Keystone XL oil pipeline. Both issues were priorities for environmental activists. However, the administration’s backing of the Alaska oil drilling project on May 26 brought scathing criticism from environmental groups. “It is a serious misstep to pass on administrative authority to constrain an out-of-control oil industry while simultaneously punting to a deadlocked Congress for climate action,” said John Noel, a senior climate campaigner with Greenpeace USA.

While both Biden and Roosevelt initially found success with their major programs—the NRA and the Green New Deal. The NRA was enacted into law and Biden received money and effort from climate activists that helped him to win the election. However, after all of the hoopla, the NRA was stymied by criticism and ultimately terminated by the Supreme Court. And, so far, it does not seem that the Green New Deal will have achieved anything close to replacing the use of fossil fuels by 2030.

    I’m sorry, is this a joke?

    Biden is not like FDR. Biden is the toxic opposite of FDR.

    FDR had his flaws, but he became president when when the Untied States was in near total collapse. He left it as the pre-eminent military and industrial power in all history, and with the highest standard of living. Not so bad, really.

    Biden, however, is a total scum ball. Sure, he’s only been (nominal) president for a little while but for about half a century he has been a total whore to power, stabbing the working class in the back and doing pretty much anything his wealthy patrons wanted in exchange for money and power.

    What has Biden done? Well…

    – The “Senator from MasterCard” helped tear up the bankruptcy laws. forcing little people (not the super rich!) into lives of debt slavery. Not even the 18th century founders of this republic were so viciously right-wing.

    – Moved to ship the industrial might of the Untied States to combust China, so that the rich can get even richer on all that lovely cheap labor. What, that’s destroyed our middle class and hollowed out our economy? Tough luck!

    – Opened the border to third-world immigration. This is not ‘liberal’, this is a far-right position, to use the surplus labor of the overpopulated third world to flood the market for labor and hammer the working class into the mud, while doing everything possible to avoid solving the real issues behind third-world poverty.

    – Deregulated finance, and using tens of trillions of dollars of public money to bail out and subsidize the corrupt and toxic Wall Street banks.

    – Allowed things like “surprise medical billing” to bankrupt even people with good (i.e., expensive) health insurance, and be sentenced to a lifetime of debt-slavery.

    – Spent a trillion dollars a year on pointless winless overseas wars, starving our own economy of resources and capital while enriching politically connected defense contractors.

    – Oh, and ‘climate change’? Pull-eze. That’s a con whose only purpose is to enact regressive taxes on the working class, and to drive down their standard of living so the rich can force population growth even higher.

    I could go on. You get the idea. FDR was flawed but great. Biden is about the most despicable waste of skin in American political history.

    FDR had a Brain Trust, anyway he called it that. Call them the managerial elite of their era.

    FDR’s luck in ’33 was the nation was sparsely populated, local self-sufficiency was often the rule, and there was no serious possibility of foreign trade to gum up the works. Or immigration; that issue was solved for FDR before he ran for president. So his Brain Trust only had economics to worry about. Apart from the Dust Bowl the country was in good shape.

    From our perspective 90 years on, FDR and his nation were on Lucky Street. True the Depression hurt, and it’s best detailed in William Manchester’s opening pages of The Glory and the Dream, a history of the USA from the 30s to the oil shocks of the 70s. Without minimizing their pain, most Americans had a clear sense of optimism, and there were good reasons for that.

    One thing that didn’t hurt was that over half the nation had access to growing food of their own, communities where most people knew each other and didn’t usually need cars. No social media had to be a plus. But as my family history makes clear, also no indoor plumbing or electricity either.

    Amazingly fortuitous that FDR’s Brain Trust had one undoubted greatest hit: They came up with the CC camps and for most of the 30s right till Pearl Harbor, those camps taught precisely the skills men would need for war all over the world not to mention industries back home. Almost like they knew where the whole ball of yarn was rolling.

    Not saying they did. FDR was just a lucky president. All the more reason to pay attention to what Joe (or his handlers) might really have in mind.

  3. One trillion a year isn’t near enough. It should be 10 trillion a year so every hair brained idea can be properly funded.

    That additional currency out of thin air will hasten an end to the dollar and the US imperium. It is the end of the US Fed Gov that is the ultimate solution to the entire world’s problems. The dollar is a dead man walking so let’s get it over with as quickly as possible while people still have their current resources available to them. The longer this drags out the more people will be homeless and unemployed.

  4. Oh please. Joe Biden is a clown, a blowhard and always has been. He is Blarney personified. He isn’t in charge of a thing. He is a puppet. He came in somewhere at the bottom of the democratic primaries and Kamala Harris didn’t come in at all!! I’ve got a personal theory that he is one of those Irish guys(and I apologize to every decent Irish person everywhere),that always felt inferior and put down by an Anglo British elite in U.S. politics. That’s why he is so damned vile. He wants revenge against those he feels are his betters. Just my thoughts on this bozo. This administration is a joke and is totally run by the toxic elite that are destroying one of the greatest nations that ever existed.

    Being no economist, I don’t have a well informed opinion on whether FDR’s policies helped the economy or prolonged the depression. I’ve read both viewpoints, from right and left. What is clear is that the depression did not fully end until the US entered WWII.

    But, comparing a demented clown like Biden to FDR is a joke. With his frequent radio addresses, FDR sought to inform and comfort the public, and unite the nation. Biden, on the other hand, is doing all he can to divide the people, and make whites into hunted, second-class citizens. A few years ago, he said it is a good thing that Whites will soon become a minority. Thanks to his open borders policies (which the republicans have also promoted) White babies are already a minority of new births.

    White men and their women should never forgive racist Biden for claiming we are more dangerous to the country than Al Qaida and ISIS. How can we live happy, productive lives, reaching our full potential, in a country (no longer a nation) in which half of the public has been conditioned by propaganda to hate us, and wants us to die. That hate-filled comment should stick with Biden for the rest of his miserable life, just as Hillary will never live down calling half of the country “deplorables.” Lock and load.

    Both were/are Jew-stooges running NWO rackets. FDR was an early stage Jew-stooge, Biden a late stage. Both are accused if “anti-Semitism” by hard-core Zionists even though they spent the country’s resources and future pandering to the Jewish rackets.

    Watch this video to find out just how depraved Biden’s Jewish braintrust truly is.
    https://www.realjewnews.com/?p=1496

    FDR’s Jews were equally sick, just not so in-your-face at the time. And equally murderous to these neocon/neolib Jews. ((Morgenthau)) was an absolute monster, as was the bankster/gangster cabal backing him.
    https://en.metapedia.org/wiki/Morgenthau_Plan

    FDR was a WASP jackass to rival Churchill. The corrupt depravity of these “great men” is only now becoming widely recognized as decades of Jewish treachery and corruption are finally dragging the nation to its knees. Even the most delusional fuddy duddy can no longer deny the mire and Judeofascist Zionist chaos all around them.

    It’s going to take an equal measure of force to put things right.

  9. FDR issued Executive Order 6102 that made owning gold illegal. After the terminally stupid handed over their gold for $20.67 worth of US script per ounce, he revalued that same gold at $35.00 per ounce thereby cheating the population of at least the difference.

    No one has the right to make sound money illegal or in any way attempt to limit its use.

    FDR was a POS, as were all presidents since. Biden is a puppet as well as a POS.

    Let us hope that something like this is true. The Green New Deal needs a stake driven through its heart. The German nonsense is a major example of the utter nonsense Green energy truly is. The point about ice and snow should make clear that cloudy, northern climates are no place for such schemes.

    On the point of snow and ice one should consider the arguments for global cooling which appear far more correct than those for global warming. Frozen windmills and snow covered PV panels are likely to grow in number in the years ahead. The truly astonishing thing about this whole Green movement is that it has not yet been overthrown by angry populations freezing in the dark. High latitude countries will follow the Germans into the dark if they continue to chase this truly dark dream.

  11. @follyofwar

    I sometimes wonder if whites have lost all self respect. That’s the key. If they have, forget it, it’s over for them. And yes, Biden has never done a damned thing that was positive for a single American taxpaying citizen in his whole 50 year career at the swamp and he won’t do anything for them today. How any responsible tax paying citizen can vote for this clown is a total mystery.

    Yes, this has been going on since 2008 (13 years now), but it’s been kept very quiet. I remember reading back in 2008 how people couldn’t buy foreclosed properties from the banks. It turned out that the banks were holding these properties and then selling large blocks of houses to outfits like Blackrock.

    The Federal Reserve has artificially suppressed interest rates, and this is what the availability of cheap money does. It’s never done to help the “poor”, as they claim. It’s always done to help the rich get richer.

    This is why they want a flood of illegals and anybody they can find – as renters. And this would be why they’re so desperately wanting to raise the minimum wage – so the renters can afford to pay the rent they want.

    One of the Federal Reserve’s mandates is to provide “stable prices”, but they’re not doing this. Congress has the authority to stop the Federal Reserve, but they’re in on the game, so they won’t.

    When a group can come in and outbid everybody else and buy up huge blocks of houses, this not only maintains high prices, but ensures that higher prices are around the corner. They wonder why the younger generation aren’t starting families? Well, what hope do they have when they have to compete against outfits like this? And it’s not just American companies doing this. I’ve heard there’s Chinese companies doing the same.

    They should all be strung up.

  14. It is difficult to compare the two New Deals, when with FDR we hark back to another time, with a different social context. A crucial distinction is that political differences were fought over or reconciled within a different racial-demographic backdrop. White Southern Democrats were key power brokers in the crafting of legislation, and a coalition between conservative Southern Democrats and Republicans formed to block such FDR schemes as Supreme Court packing. Today, the “constellation” has changed, and there has been a revaluation of values–“social justice” now meaning a guilt-ridden promotion of manifest injustice to society and any sense of sanity. At least with the 1930’s New Deal, the U.S. survived and had a future in front it. We can be much less certain about the future prospects of America under the “Green New Deal” and the frail Chief Executive nominally in charge.

    The ONLY part of your sentence that I will agree with is: “Biden is a puppet as well as a P.O.S.”

    In my opinion, FDR was also a “puppet” (he admitted as much, when he made the remark about who REALLY called the shots). BUT…he actually tried to do something for the ordinary American. The “Elite” / “Cabal” / “Secret Team” (whatever you want to call them) did not like that one bit and they put road blocks in his way every time they could.

    JFK, in my opinion, saw through the PHONY “cold war” and was trying to do what he could to work for world peace, unlike every president since then. That was WHY “THEY” (no, NOT Lee Harvey Oswald) KILLED HIM.

    FDR issues an executive order (Dictatorial fatwa) making owning gold illegal. He had no right to do that as executive orders aren’t law and only apply to the employees of the executive in the administration.

    FDR’s policies were choking off the Japanese supply of materials, including oil and rubber. He knew about the attack on Pearl Harbor and let it happen so he could enter the war. FDR was just another stone cold murderer in a long line of such that become saints in people’s minds.

    Stephen J. Sniegoski concluded:

    “And, so far, it does not seem that the Green New Deal will have achieved anything close to replacing the use of fossil fuels by 2030.”

    Probably not, but the damage has already been done by the Green Blob comprised of global warming alarmists, the energy sector promoting wind turbines and solar arrays, and misguided but perhaps sincere environmentalists.

    The long and short of it is so-called renewable energy sources cannot carry their own weight, and must rely on subsidies to show any profit. Even with the subsidies, many of these irresponsible schemes have already gone belly up, such as Solyndra, whose failure cost taxpayers over $500 million.

    Unreliable and intermittent energy sources like wind and solar drive up the cost of everything for everybody, resulting in runaway inflation. No wonder so many homeless people are living with their dogs in tents on the sidewalk.

    Recall Barrack Obama’s promise of “skyrocketing energy costs” came as part of his war on coal and the other so-called “fossil fuels, along with the concomitant demonization of carbon, which is a solid and cannot be emitted. The solid element Carbon (C) and the gas carbon dioxide (CO₂) are two entirely different things, but try getting that point across to any of the shrill proponents of the Green New Deal.

    In any event, the increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide showed no pause during the pandemic slow down, indicating that human activities play no detectable role in the rise of CO₂ in the atmosphere, which no doubt has been driven by outgassing from the warming oceans as the planet has been warming since the Little Ice Age, but sooner or later, probably sooner, that warming will stop, or has already leveled off and/or stopped entirely.

    Real environmentalists should take note that both wind turbines and solar arrays are bird slaughtering apparatuses, but they are granted immunity from federal laws prohibiting the killing of birds protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, which excludes only a few introduced species like Starlings.

    You and I cannot legally possess even a feather from an Eagle, or even a Cardinal, but the operators of wind turbines and solar arrays are granted federal dispensation, and the bird slaughter goes on, even while the Green Weenies are picking our pockets.
