Almost half of the states in the country are now suing the Biden Administration over the cancelled Keystone XL pipeline!
Think about that for a second…
The very same Joe Biden who allegedly won more than 81 million votes in last year’s presidential election, is being sued by half the states in the country.
The amazing economy we were all starting to get used to during the Trump presidency was reduced to ashes by Joe Biden, and the cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline was a big part of it.
The two newest states to announce they are suing the Biden Administration are Alaska and Florida.
This brings the total up to 23 states!
Meanwhile, Biden had no problem greenlighting Russia’s Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline.
Biden is set to have a summit with Vladmir Putin on June 16th.
The Washington Examiner has the latest:
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.
“The fallout from the Colonial pipeline cyberattack made it very clear that we need more energy infrastructure, not less. The Keystone XL would get more oil, including Montana oil, to American refineries to be sold to American consumers,” he said.
Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and Alaska Attorney General Treg Taylor were added to a complaint filed with the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Thursday, bringing the total number of states in the lawsuit to 23.
Here's more on Biden's latest woes from the Federalist:
Two more state attorneys general are joining the ongoing lawsuit initially filed by 21 other states against the Biden White House for its cancelation of the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen made the announcement on behalf of Florida and Alaska on Thursday, noting, “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.” The complaint filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas now includes Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and Alaska Attorney General Treg Taylor.
Within hours of assuming the presidency, Joe Biden revoked the permit for the pipeline. In January 2017, President Donald Trump reauthorized its construction after President Barack Obama rejected the proposal in 2015.
The pipeline is operated by TC Energy and has the capacity to transport 830,000 crude oil barrels a day from Hardisty, Alberta, to a refining location in the Gulf Coast, and other places in the United States. The pipeline would have created more than 42,000 jobs and, according to TC Energy, injected more than $8 billion into the North American economies. Biden’s decision immediately killed more than 25,000 jobs.
Of course, while Biden has killed American jobs by cancelling our pipelines, he greenlit Russia's Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline, or as Ted Cruz calls it, the "Biden-Putin Pipeline."
Biden is scheduled to meet with Putin is just a few short weeks..
It will be interesting to see how that "summit" goes
