    BINGHAMTON, New York — Folks along both sides of the state line know they’re sitting on a gold mine geologists call the Marcellus Formation, but those to the north have watched helplessly as their Pennsylvania neighbors prospered, an issue that President Trump believes could help him win the critical Keystone State on Tuesday.

    SAFEGUARDING AMERICAN JOBS: President Donald J. Trump will continue to defend the jobs and interests of American workers in energy and other key industries. President Trump is fighting misguided attacks on hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) and other innovative energy and natural-resources technologies.Due to public calls to ban or restrict such technologies, the President has directed his Administration to assess the potential effects of such bans or restrictions on American citizens.The Administration will assess the potential consequences of fracking bans – such as job losses – on Americans who are directly or indirectly benefiting from the energy industry and other industries,...

    President Donald Trump on Saturday announced the signing of an executive order to protect both the fracking and oil and gas industries following former Vice President Joe Biden’s pledge to “transition from the oil industry.” “Just signed an order to protect fracking and the oil and gas industry,” the president wrote on Twitter. “This means JOBS, low energy bills, and continued AMERICAN ENERGY INDEPENDENCE! Sleepy Joe would BAN fracking and destroy American energy jobs! He has NO clue!!” Just signed an order to protect fracking and the oil and gas industry.

    Shhhh! Poppy, what were you thinking when you spoke out loud on CNN the very inconvenient truth just days before the election that there would be fewer fracking jobs in a Biden administration? Here's the quote: "One thing that is clear is that there would be fewer fracking jobs under a Biden administration than under another Trump administration." Although it seems improbable that anybody in Pennsylvania, and elsewhere, could now believe Joe Biden's pledge not to ban fracking in that state since there are numerous videos of him in the recent past promising to get rid of fracking, it is...

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden describes himself as a "transition" candidate and a "bridge" to a future generation of party leaders. Those comments should scare every American who opposes socialized medicine. Biden himself may not favor a Canadian-style, government-run healthcare system -- at least not publicly. But his likely successors do. And if Biden and his fellow Democrats triumph this November, American patients and taxpayers could experience the disastrous consequences of single-payer far sooner than they realize. Younger Democrats, both elected and rank-and-file, overwhelmingly favor single-payer health care. Just consider the views of vice-presidential nominee Kamala Harris. California's junior senator...

    In one of the rare instances where the media has bothered to ask Joe Biden about anything of substance, he was forced to give an answer during the last presidential debate about whether or not he was planning on banning fracking. He flip-flopped on that issue yet again, saying that he would not be banning fracking, likely because he’s aware that the polls in Pennsylvania are hanging by a thread at the moment. But as C. Boyden Gray points out this week at Real Clear Politics, Joe Biden’s answer wasn’t just at odds with previous statements by both he...

    What the frack was Joe Biden thinking? Or is this what happens when the teleprompters are off, live TV is on, and a pandering politician befuddled by it all riffs — and whiffs? Thursday night, from Erie to Pittsburgh, Harrisburg to Minersville, Wilkes Barre to Somerset, Pennsylvania voters learned the truth about Joe Biden’s “inconvenient truth.” He’s now okay with fracking, but clearly not okay with oil and gas. The reactions were faster than Biden’s attempts at cleaning up what he’d stepped in later that night.

    Seeking to stop the political bleeding, Joseph R. Biden struck out on the campaign trail Saturday in Pennsylvania, pushing back against President Trump’s charge that he wants to bring the hammer down on the oil and gas industry in the state by banning fracking. “Look let me be clear,” Mr. Biden said at a rally in Bucks County “I am not banning fracking in Pennsylvania or anywhere else.” Mr. Biden’s stance on the oil and gas industry is getting extra attention in the wake of the final presidential debate. Mr. Trump said Mr. Biden had delivered a mixed message on...

    Joe Biden committed the gaffe of telling the truth about his climate policies Thursday night when he said he wants to “transition” the U.S. from fossil fuels. The Democratic nominee is admitting that he plans to regulate the oil and gas business out of existence, and Americans soon to be “transitioned” may want to pay attention. “Would you close down the oil industry?” asked President Trump during the debate. Mr. Biden: “By the way, I would transition from the oil industry, yes.” Mr. Trump: “Oh, that’s a big statement.” Mr. Biden: “I will transition. It is a big statement. Because...

    Energy issues, and the Green New Deal specifically, may end up being the political death of a potential Joe Biden presidency. During his debate with President Donald J. Trump on October 22nd, former Vice President Biden embraced the idea of banning fracking and eliminating the American oil and gas industry.  That was a big mistake.It seems like Biden has fallen for the fallacy that supporting the radical environmental agenda is good politics. He may have spent too much time in coffee shops in Delaware and on Amtrak trains to understand the financial struggle many Americans are facing. His leftist advisors...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden claimed that he "never said I oppose fracking" when pressed by President Donald Trump on the issue during Thursday night's presidential debate. "You said it on tape," Trump replied. Facts First: It's false that Biden never said he opposed fracking. In two Democratic primary debates, Biden made confusing remarks over fracking that his campaign had to clarify. In 2019, Biden said "we would make sure it's eliminated" when asked about the future of coal and fracking; in 2020 he said he opposed "new fracking." Biden's written plan, conversely, never included a full ban on fracking...

    Energy produced on federal lands and waters plays a critical role in America’s energy revolution, accounting for 12% of U.S. natural gas production and nearly a quarter of U.S. oil production. Here’s what’s projected to be at stake for U.S. energy leadership if a federal leasing and development ban is enacted according to new analysis prepared by OnLocation using EIA’s National Energy Modeling System (NEMS) which is used to produce their Annual Energy Outlook.

    Joe Biden is probably telling the truth when he says he won’t “ban” fracking. A president can’t do that by executive order. And even if Democrats seize the Senate, a legislative ban would be politically risky. Far more likely is that a Biden administration would end fracking via indirect means, by taking a regulatory nibble here and a legislative bite there. While Mr. Biden has flip-flopped on fracking, he has consistently pledged to outlaw drilling on federal lands. That would affect 8% of all U.S. oil production, 9% of gas production, and 6% of natural gas liquids production. He has...

    Pa. Boilermakers Trustee: 'Nobody from his staff—nobody—has ever spoken with us' A top official at one of Pennsylvania's most powerful labor groups slammed Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for falsely boasting of the union's endorsement. Shawn Steffee, a trustee with Boilermakers Local 154, said that his members were shocked to hear the Democratic nominee claim their support on national television. While Biden claimed to have "sat down" with union leaders to have an in-depth discussion about his plans, Steffee said the Biden campaign never approached his membership. Biden's criticism to fracking led Local 154—the largest local chapter of boilermakers in...

    The two largest U.S. energy firms, Chevron Corp and Exxon Mobil Corp, have increased their share of campaign donations to Democrats this year, according to latest filings, amid a looming battle over fracking. The vast majority, 85% of all oil and gas donations this election, have flowed on behalf of U.S. President Donald Trump, other Republican candidates and conservative causes, according to data from campaign researcher the Center for Responsive Politics (CRP). However, oil majors have put more money into Democratic coffers as some polls show Democratic challenger Joseph Biden with an as much as 10 percentage point lead and...
