President Joe Biden made a very controversial decision during his first day in office and he is not looking to reverse it. For those who have already forgotten because of all the insanity that has taken place since, this madman shut down the Keystone XL pipeline project, costing Americans thousands of job during one of the worst possible moments for widespread job loss.
Of course, the decision won him a great deal of praise from the far left, which does not grasp the severity of this decision. In their minds, they can just “keep it in the ground” without any further repercussions to deal with. None of this comes as any solace to the families who are now going to struggle to put food on the table.
Since this decision was made, various Attorney Generals have decided that it is time to take action. They are not going to accept this Biden decision without a fight. Lawsuits are being filed, as the president is being told that his decision was a massive overreach. These AGs are correct about that. That’s why Biden rammed it through as quickly as he possibly could.
23 states are filing suit, as Florida and Alaska have joined the fight. Per the Washington Examiner:
“Two more attorneys general have announced their respective states are joining a lawsuit against the Biden administration and its “illegal” cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline.
“The Constitution is clear that presidents do not have the power to regulate foreign and interstate commerce or to unilaterally undo an act of Congress,” said Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen, announcing that Alaska and Florida are joining the legal fight.
In the statement, Knudsen said U.S. consumers would benefit the most by the construction of the pipeline — and are subsequently hurt the most by its cancellation.”
Biden’s position on this matter is sure to become more and more tenuous, as the AG in Montana has already pointed out. For example, how can he suggest this in good conscience when the Colonial Pipeline was just hacked? The southeastern United States went into a total panic, creating a legitimate fuel shortage. CNN and other mainstream media sources tried to deny this at first but it was not long before they admitted to the real truth.
Biden does not know what he is doing and we are forced to pay for it, over and over again. He does not care because he is not the one who suffers from his insane policies. If this is what happens when one solitary pipeline shuts down, how much worse might things get? That’s not something that Sleepy Joe and his cabal of far-left toadies are not willing to reckon with.
In fact, the administration has already sent out a very clear message. They are telling the private sector that they need to step up their security measures. The current energy infrastructure needs to be maintained, regardless of what any Democrat might think about that. That’s why it was foolish to put a stop to the Keystone XL pipeline in the first place.
There are serious legal considerations that have to be made as well. Various companies committed serious money to the project, doing so on good faith that our government would be more than happy to honor their commitments. Now that the pandemic is easing, the last thing that America needs is to be losing out on jobs. We need a president who actually wants the American people employed.
Biden just wants everyone to become dependent on the government so that he can try to hand down the big chair to Kamala. That way, she can tell everyone that Biden is responsible for their livelihood, as opposed to them being able to take matters into their own hands. Biden may have thought that he could rule the country with the use of his pen and his phone but not so fast!
