Friends of China flocking together to crush production of solar panels in United States

Dianne Feinstein, 88, is in her 30th year as a U.S. Senator from California, now the oldest person in that chamber and a beacon to her fellow travelers at the Trilateral Commission and other globalist cabals.

Senator Dianne Feinstein

Feinstein opposes American manufacturing and favors importing from China to increase corporate profits, despite impact on jobs here and regardless of allowing supply chain dependence on a determined enemy country.

When she once was asked about her relation with Beijing, Feinstein said:

I sometimes say that in my last life maybe I was Chinese.

That may explain her relationship with a Chinese staff member – her personal driver, gofer and liaison to the Asian-Americans community for 20 years – who was caught reporting to China’s Ministry of State Security in 2018.

The FBI had contacted Feinstein five years earlier to warn her about that employee eventually forced to retire by Feinstein.

Is it no surprise that she is still working on behalf of China’s interests?

The latest stab is at American manufacturing, especially solar panels.

She joined last week with seven other Senators to push President Joseph Biden and the White House choir to make the Section 201 solar tariffs expire on February 7.

Meanwhile the International Trade Commission (ITC) has urged the continuation of these 30% tariffs for another four years, noting that the price of panels has decreased in this country, because of local competition since 2018, despite Section 201 limiting imports.

Even opponents of the tariffs agree that American factories need to continue expansion, since 85% of solar panels are still imported. One cause for that is dumping from Southeast Asia – an investigation that the Commerce Department dropped last fall – and the massive, heavily government-subsidized industries in China.

Feinstein’s co-signers of the appeal to Biden for more China imports were:

While Biden was contemplating the pro-China letter, another group of Senators sent their own missive, opposing repeal and urging slowing China’s plan for monopolizing solar cell manufacturing:

We do not accept the premise that the only way for our country to invest in renewable energy sources is to remain dependent on Chinese-produced and other imported goods.

In fact, we can reduce emissions by fostering increased capacity for domestic solar cell and module manufacturing, since products manufactured in the United States are among the most environmentally friendly in the world and built with strong labor standards, the six Senators wrote.

Signing that letter were:

The ITC has recommended the White House extend the tariff safeguards for another four years, including adding double-sided solar panels to the mix. They were originally added, then removed, following a lawsuit by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA), the solar importer lobbyist.

After China first learned the U.S. wanted to eliminate coal, nuclear and petroleum products as a Green ideal, that country began gearing up solar panel production in its factories, which today are – ironically – primarily powered by coal.
