(TeaParty.org Exclusive) – The Biden administration is once again proving they are the very epitome of elitist left-wing buffoons as they are considering a ban on gas stoves, which, by the way, both of President Joe Biden’s homes have in their kitchens. How many times do we as Americans need to see the blatant hypocrisy of the Democratic Party before we say enough is enough and stop supporting these folks? With everything we have experienced over the last two years, there should never be another Democrat elected to the White House again.
Richard Trumka Jr., a top Consumer Product Safety Commission official who Biden nominated to the position, recently spoke with Bloomberg at the start of the week and revealed that banning the manufacture and import of gas stoves was “on the table” if they “can’t be made safe.” But the president’s home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware has a very upscale kitchen “any gourmet chef would die for” that also seemingly has a gas-powered stove, according to Long & Foster Real Estate. The home was purchased by the Biden family for $2.74 million back in 2017, reports Jack McEvoy of the Daily Caller.
“Back in September 2020, first lady Jill Biden shared a picture of herself cooking spinach on a gas stovetop at what appears to be the Bidens’ family home in Wilmington, Delaware. Months earlier, Mrs. Biden posted photos of herself and her husband coloring Easter eggs in that same kitchen. The Bidens’ gas stovetop features prominently in one of the photos,” McEvoy wrote.
“Trumka told Bloomberg that gas stoves, which are present in 35% of American households, represent a ‘hidden hazard’ to families in the wake of recent studies, one of which attributed about 12.7% of childhood asthma cases to the appliance. Trumka stated in December that a complete ban on gas stoves was ‘a real possibility,’ The Hill reported,” McEvoy shared.

Industry officials, along with public health experts, have disputed the claims made in the studies linking asthma and gas stoves. Sen. Ted Cruz, a Texas Republican, highlighted the fact that the Bidens’ own a gas stove at their Wilmington home.
“Rules for thee, but not for me,” he said in a tweet.

“The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and World Health Organization previously declared that the levels of nitrogen dioxide, carbon monoxide and soot released by gas stoves are linked to respiratory illnesses and other health concerns, according to a January 2022 study published by the American Chemical Society. At the same time, the EPA has stated that a properly ventilated kitchen equipped with a stovetop fan ‘greatly reduces exposure to pollutants during cooking,’” McEvoy noted.
The thing is, households that have electric stoves have fires 2.6 times more often than residences with gas stoves, as per a report published by the National Fire Protection Association. That kind of flies in the face of the narrative being pushed here, doesn’t it? The house fire death rate in households featuring an electric stove was 3.4 times higher than those that used gas appliances.
Trumka went on to say that the Consumer Product Safety Commission was not “coming for anyone’s gas stoves,” in a tweet published on Jan. 9.
Thanks for your interest!
To be clear, CPSC isn’t coming for anyone’s gas stoves. Regulations apply to new products.
For Americans who CHOOSE to switch from gas to electric, there is support available – Congress passed the Inflation Reduction Act which includes a $840 rebate. https://t.co/fcmWMSSfE5
