Posted on 06/02/2023 11:55:42 AM PDT by CFW
The Biden administration on Friday ordered a 20-year ban on new oil and gas drilling leases within 10 miles of the Chaco Culture National Historical Park in New Mexico, according to multiple reports.
The moratorium — which the Department of Interior initially began considering in November 2021 — is a long-sought goal of several local politicians, conservation groups and Native American tribes that want to preserve the centuries-old Pueblo ruins located there, although some tribes have opposed the ban for limiting future economic opportunities, according to E&E News.
Interior Secretary Deb Haaland, herself New Mexican and the nation’s first Native American Cabinet member, was directly lobbied to end drilling near the park by members of the Pueblo Action Alliance, a Native American activism organization which her daughter Somah belongs to, with the group’s executive director affectionately referring to her as “Auntie Deb” in an interview after the fact.

Our nation cannot operate and prosper without gas and oil. The only conclusion therefore is that Biden and his administration do not want our nation to prosper. You will own nothing and you will be happy.
The Indians like being impoverished
Good idea! Gotta save the purple footed toad.
I’d say “unbelievable”, but then I’d remember who’s pulling Biden’s strings.
We are so screwed.
We were energy independent under Trump.
Under this senescent mass of putridity we are going to be shivering in the dark.
As soon as Trump gets back into the WH, he should immediately rescind this BS ban.
he’s choking us to death we should do the same to him
we are watching a full blown Marxist takeover.
In the mid 80’s went to visit relatives who went through Nazism or were living under Communism.
Their warnings back then are ringing true today. MAJOR!
True ... but I think it’s Mao more than Marx ...
I thought kevs golden buget deal was going to improve the permits situation.
I say we build more convenience stores , they sell gas AND oil.
Some things are so simple if you just think it through.
Have to close it off until China owns it.
You’re probably right.
But either way, it is flat out tyranny.
All these nation’s “firsts” starting with Obama have been colossal disasters.
This is why we are not seeing increased investment in the oil patch. No one wants the rug pulled out from under them in Canada or the US. These two countries are becoming hostile to the industry.
Yeah. That will be immediately lifted as soon as the ChiComs acquire the land.
Purposely crippling America
Just like his puppet master boss
