Frank Macchiarola, senior vice president of Policy, Economics and Regulatory Affairs at the American Petroleum Institute (API), said in an interview that if President Joe Biden puts a permanent ban on oil and gas development on federal waters and land, it could cost 1 million American jobs. “I think the first four days of the Biden Administration have given a clear picture of what the next four years could look like,” he said. “President Biden comes into office with a real economic headwind and a difficult labor market but at the same time he inherited an energy [landscape] that’s stronger...

On his first day in office, Biden, the job-killing President, killed over 70,000 jobs and counting. By Day Two, he killed even more. It was the same ridiculous plan advanced by Obama – that going “green” would produce more jobs at higher pay. It didn’t. It did the opposite – several “green” energy companies went bankrupt – Solyndra is a case in point.On his first day in office, Biden, the job-killing President, killed over 70,000 jobs and counting.

Biden order lets people who quit jobs where they thought they might catch coronavirus to collect unemployment

FauxNews ^ | 1-22-21 | Morgan Phillips
Continuing a flurry of executive action, President Biden signed an order Friday calling on the Labor Department to allow workers to collect unemployment benefits if they quit jobs they fear put them at risk for COVID-19. Pointing to a Gallup Poll finding that found 43% of Americans live in a household where at least one member has a preexisting condition, the White House wrote in a release: “The President is asking the Department of Labor to consider clarifying that workers have a federally guaranteed right to refuse employment that will jeopardize their health and if they do so, they will...

On Day One of his presidency, President Joe Biden signed an executive order stopping the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, slashing thousands of jobs along with it, because he and his incoming administration deem it an environmental hazard. TC Energy Corp. has already let go 1,000 workers in both the U.S. and Canada. Pete Buttigieg, who ran against Biden in the 2020 Democratic primary, is now the president's Transportation Secretary nominee. He was grilled by the Senate on Thursday about Biden's job-killing signatures. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) shared his concern that President Biden just upended 1,200 good paying union...

Almost any U.S. employment snapshot looks grand compared with last April when COVID shutdowns rocketed joblessness to 14.8 percent. By December, the seasonally adjusted rate fell to 6.7 percent. So, everything zen? As the song goes, I don’t think so. Current unemployment is nearly double what it was in December 2019 and remains higher than at any point since March 2014. Neither the 2001 recession nor the 1990 downturn drove joblessness so high. And this doesn’t express the problem’s full magnitude. The effective unemployment rate, including those who have given up looking for work and those who involuntarily work part-time,...

Day one of the Biden presidency was bad news for thousands of working class families all over Texas. Most conservative estimates suggest the border wall created over 10,000 jobs. Daniel Friend reports: Shortly after being sworn as the 46th president, Joe Biden signed an executive order to end the declaration of a national emergency that authorized former President Donald Trump to divert funds from other military construction projects to finance the construction of a new border wall. Trump’s emergency declaration was set to expire in February, but before leaving office, he extended the declaration an additional year. “Like every nation,...

Remember when Trump warned everyone that Joe Biden would kill American energy jobs? Here it comes. Democrats are uniquely deft at destroying the American economy, but President Joe Biden just might shatter the record for the fastest time to do so. After taking the oath of office Wednesday, Biden was expected to sign several executive orders meant to undo the work of his predecessor, including orders to roll back protections for the unborn and dismantle border security.

After taking the oath of office Wednesday, Biden was expected to sign several executive orders meant to undo the work of his predecessor, including orders to roll back protections for the unborn and dismantle border security.

Nearly half of all Britons polled said they backed employers demanding staff be vaccinated against the Chinese coronavirus in order to keep their jobs. A YouGov poll from Tuesday found that 49 per cent of respondents said that workplaces should be allowed to “insist that their employees get the coronavirus vaccine when they are offered it”. Only 36 per cent said that “they should not be allowed to insist”.

U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) has given a thumbs-down to President-elect Joseph Biden’s draft amnesty, saying that “everyone” must first have a chance to get a good job in a post-coronavirus economy. “Before we deal with immigration, we need to deal with COVID, make sure everyone has the chance to find a good job, and confront the threat from China,” Rubio said.

A week ahead of being inaugurated, President Joe Biden announced his $1.9 trillion plan to stimulate the economy. The plan is a list of handouts--$1,400 checks to individuals (including illegal immigrants), unemployment bonus payments, a $15 per hour minimum wage, bailouts for improvident state and local governments, student debt forgiveness, transit subsidies, and "health equity" grants. Economist Stephen Moore estimates that "this so-called stimulus package will cost four million jobs. None of the elements of this plan reward or encourage work or investment—the two main drivers of economic prosperity and growth. A better plan would be a one-year cut of...

You can’t be serious, Dude. There was a time in the US when you could get a great job if you earned a bachelor’s degree in “anything.” The catch is that JFK was president at the time. Most parents (and their students) are oblivious to how college really works today. In some ways it is hard to blame them. Colleges and universities have a powerful public relations team, pushing the message 24/7 that "college is for all." The team is made up of educators, guidance counselors, financial aid officers, politicians, pop culture, special interest groups--like the College Board, and college...

Biden’s proposals will likely speed America further along the track to bankruptcy, higher interest rates, higher inflation and much higher taxes Can Uncle Sam tax, spend, borrow and print money to return America to prosperity? President-elect Joe Biden’s "American Rescue Plan," announced Thursday night, makes a $1.9 trillion bet that we can. The Biden plan is almost a replay — except with more than twice the price tag — of the strategy that President Barack Obama and then-Vice President Biden employed in 2009 with their $900 billion "stimulus" bill. Even by Obama’s own numbers, that bill led to hundreds of...

Scott Stedman shared messages he received from Lincoln Project co-founder John Weaver. Stedman says Weaver referred to him as “my boy” and also told him how “hot” he was in private messages. Ryan Girdusky appears to have set some of this in motion with several tweets earlier in the day claiming he knew of a ‘founding member of the Lincoln Project who offered jobs to young men in exchange for sex.’ Since posting this thread 25 minutes ago, I've gotten multiple DMs of people telling me they experienced this (and worse).— Scott Stedman (@ScottMStedman) January 10, 2021 The member...

RJ Hauman with the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), which had requested Trump extend the halt on foreign visa workers to the U.S., said the order continues to be critical in a labor market where 17.8 million Americans are jobless today. “While the unemployment rate has fallen, too many Americans are still looking for work and the economic outlook remains bleak,” Hauman said. “If this proclamation was allowed to lapse, then companies could easily return to exploiting cheap foreign labor,” Hauman continued. “If President-elect Biden quickly rescinds, the country should take note — he doesn’t stand with American workers.”...

'Racially Diverse' Cops Dumping Portland in Favor of Lower Paying Jobs in Places Where They're Appreciated

Portland cops are already retiring in record numbers, but now cops are fleeing mid-career to go to places for lower pay and a fiscal hit to their retirement accounts. The Democrats’ embrace of the antifa and BLM defund-the-police stance is working—leaving Portlanders even more defenseless against rioters, looters, arsonists, squatters, and terrorists. In essence, the exodus is “a win by those that would want the police to be defunded,” according to the Portland Police Bureau’s human resources officer.Finding replacements may take some time because the diversity recruiting officer for Portland police is gone too.The Portland Tribune characterizes the exodus as...
