  • Biden kills pipelines at home but promotes them for the Taliban

    On his first day in office, President Biden canceled permits for the Keystone XL pipeline. Environmentalists and anti-fossil fuel activists should not have applauded his move. After all, Canada will not stop extracting oil from the tar sands of northern Alberta. Instead, it will simply export oil over existing pipelines or to the Pacific Ocean, where the damage from a potential spill would be harder to address. Biden’s cancellation cost jobs and pushes Canada toward greater economic cooperation with China. It also shakes confidence in U.S. business. Who would invest in the country if any future administration can simply renege...

    If President Trump had been colluding with Russia, the first thing he would have done would have been to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline and otherwise prevent our achieving energy independence. Russia was once described as being a gas station masquerading as a country. Its only commodities of value are weapons and oil. Building Keystone XL and unleashing fracking was Trump’s way of screwing with Putin’s ambitions, not rewarding them. We would have to wait for Joe Biden to collude with Russia on energy by banning Keystone XL and declaring war on fracking. As Helen Raleigh, writing in The Federalist,...
  • BIDEN: It Was ‘Bad Policy’ For Pipeline Workers To Be Employed, Jobs Needed ‘Eliminating’ Through Executive Orders

    02/03/2021 12:54:54 PM PST · by Red Badger · 66 replies ^ | February 3, 2021 | Tom Pappert
    Yesterday, speaking from the Oval Office through two masks, Joe Biden declared that his ruling exclusively through executive orders – which he previously claimed would be a comparable to ruling as a dictator – is only to fix “bad policy” leftover from the Trump administration. According to Biden, this means it was “bad policy” for thousands of Keystone Pipeline workers to have jobs. “There’s a lot of talk, with good reason, about the number of executive orders that I have signed,” said Biden. “I’m not making new law, I’m eliminating bad policy.” It is unclear why Biden believes pipeline workers...

  • Joe Biden to Divert $30 Billion in Aid Trump Left For Farmers to Climate Change without Waiting For Congress

    Joe Biden is now waging war on farmers. Biden killed tens of thousands of jobs his first day in office when he canceled the Keystone XL pipeline and now he’s targeting farmers. The Trump Administration left $30 billion to help farmers suffering from the trade wars but Biden is going to divert the money to climate change pet projects. Biden’s plan is to create a “carbon bank” to pay farmers for using “sustainable farming practices” to “capture carbon in soil.” This is extremely dangerous and will only put smaller, family-owned farms out of business. Politico reported:

    DBDailyUpdate ^ | David Blackmon
    Let’s go back and re-visit Biden’s decision to cancel the cross-border permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline one more time, because it is an un-American decision that has potentially enormous, broad ramifications not just for pipeline operator TC Energy, but for America’s entire economy. It has kind of gotten lost in the whole media discussion about the decision, but we need to understand and accept the fact that Biden took his decision to just cancel this $8 billion project despite the fact that he made no finding that TC Energy was in violation of any regulation, permit or law of...

    Joe Biden was inaugurated a week ago, and like the dictator his handlers have long yearned to install, his has started out as a cruel administration. His 22 executive orders so far, more than any other president in history, have already sent tens of thousands of jobs down the drain with coldhearted carelessness. He stopped construction of the Keystone XL pipeline with the stroke of his pen. He has put all those who were working on the border wall out of work. As all those who opposed his candidacy suspected, he is doing China's bidding. Of course he is; the...

    A near-majority of U.S. voters support President Biden's move to shut down a major oil pipeline in the U.S., according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen. Biden on his first day in office signed an executive order revoking a key permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, a decision which has drawn criticism from industry leaders due to the potential major job losses in which it could result. Yet a near-majority of voters – 46% – say they are supportive of that decision, while just 34% claim to be opposed to it. The Keystone XL pipeline...

    The leader of a radical eco-extremist group celebrated President Joe Biden canceling the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, even as the move killed thousands of jobs. Co-founder of and New Yorker contributor Bill McKibben bellowed in a recent op-ed that “In his first hours in office, Joe Biden has settled—almost certainly, once and for all—one of the greatest environmental battles this country has seen [killing the Keystone XL].” He proceeded to praise how “the story behind that victory illustrates a lot about where we stand in the push for a fair and working planet.” McKibben fawned how he...

Democrats gave the excuse that the project was being halted due to its adding to the climate crisis but there is still no evidence that the risk of leaks outweighs the damage done and oil lost during transportation....

    Construction on the Keystone XL pipeline has helped keep Emily Lai’s small family restaurant alive during months of COVID-19 lockdowns. The 90′s Restaurant, on Main Street in Oyen, Alta., has stayed afloat by serving takeout to hundreds of tradespeople who temporarily moved to the area to work on the project. But now that the TC Energy Corp. pipeline has been halted, she said she and her husband are more anxious about the future of the Chinese and Western cuisine restaurant they have owned for nearly a decade. “My husband is feeling sad, too, and worried about the business,” Ms. Lai...

    The Washington Post tried to push propaganda that former President Donald Trump’s economy was terrible for minorities. One economist set the paper straight. The Post’s story online was outrageously headlined, “The Trump economy left Black Americans behind. Here’s how they want Biden to narrow the gaps.” The print headline was even worse: “Left behind in Trump’s economy, Black voters want bold action from Biden.” Both were wrong. The piece pivoted off of its incendiary anti-Trump bent to say “Black Americans” are now “counting on [President Joe Biden] to deliver on his promise to end systemic racism” in the American economy....

    From killing the Keystone XL pipeline to seeking to extend a flawed New START treaty, President Biden's first two days in office were great for Moscow.Since assuming office last Wednesday, President Joe Biden has been busy issuing more than two dozen executive decisions that will profoundly affect domestic affairs and foreign policies. Among his foreign polices directives, two decisions stand out. They’ll benefit Russia at the expense of the interests of our allies, American workers, and America’s national security. The first executive decision that benefits Russia was Biden’s executive order to rescind the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline. The...

    Personnel is policy is an adage that has been around Washington, D.C. almost as long as President Joe Biden. His administration is certainly no exception. Biden’s picks for key domestic policy roles have a history of abortion extremism and will no doubt make this administration the most radical, pro-abortion administration in history.In a typical administration, the secretarial positions are peppered with superstars or controversial figures of the respective political party, including former rivals for the presidential nomination. But instead of crafting policy through these different departments, the Biden administration is poised to direct policy through the Office of Management and...

    The Supreme Court handed a victory to advocates of abortion rights Monday, wiping off the books lower court rulings that had upheld a Texas order banning nearly all abortions in the state during the coronavirus pandemic. Gov. Greg Abbott ordered a halt to nonessential medical procedures in late March to conserve hospital resources and personal protective equipment. Attorney General Ken Paxton then said the order applied to "any type of abortions," including medication abortions that do not involve surgery.

    Twitter unveiled a feature called Birdwatch on Monday meant to bolster its efforts to combat misinformation and disinformation by tapping users in a fashion similar to Wikipedia to flag potentially misleading tweets. Not content with their silencing and censoring the views and opinions of people like Donald Trump, Twitter now turns to the Twitterverse to enlist them to do their dirty work for them. Censorship will become a group effort, where no opinion will be allowed except for the opinion of the group. This is exactly what George Orwell warned would happen one day in America, that day is now...

    In secretly recorded talks with informer Stefan Halper, Carter Page dispelled key Russia collusion allegations before FISA warrant was even approved. Four days before the FBI secured a surveillance warrant against him in fall 2016, Trump campaign adviser Carter Page repeatedly knocked down the key allegations at the heart of the Russia collusion investigation while talking to a government informant who was wearing a wire. Page's unwitting statements of innocence to informer Stefan Halper were never shared with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court before it approved four warrants authorizing a full year of surveillance of Page's communications. Page's exculpatory statements...
