13 States Rock Biden W/ Lawsuit After He Drives Does China’s Bidding, Bankrupting Americans


Thirteen states have sued Joe Biden over his executive order banning the sale of new leases for oil drilling on federal lands.

Since taking office just two months ago, Biden has single-handedly raised gasoline prices by 50% through his cancellation of the Keystone Pipeline and his ban on new drilling on federal lands.

The suit is being headed by Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry.

The suit claims that Biden violated both the Outer Continental Shelf Act and the Mineral Leasing Act which both promoted energy independence of the United States.

Under President Trump, we became energy-independent for the first time. Both actions by Biden benefitted Russia and China while costing Americans a fortune at a time when no one can afford it.

Under Biden’s promise to eliminate fossil fuels, you can expect energy prices to soar.

Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said:

“By executive fiat, Joe Biden and his administration have single-handedly driven the price of energy up — costing the American people where it hurts most, in their pocketbooks. Biden’s Executive Orders abandon middle-class jobs at a time when America needs them most and put our energy security in the hands of foreign countries, many of whom despise America’s greatness.”

“For decades, Congress has embraced responsible development of our natural resources as a means of achieving energy independence – a matter of national security. They have discarded vulnerable dependence on foreign oil, which is why the court should reject the Biden Ban.”

The thirteen states included in the lawsuit are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and West Virginia. I am surprised that New Mexico did not join the lawsuit as much of their state’s business is in the fossil fuel industry.

From The Daily Caller

Days before he signed the executive order, Biden directed the Department of Interior to pause existing oil and natural gas leases on public lands and offshore waters. The agency is conducting a review of the current leases.

The announcement is the latest lawsuit filed by a state against the Biden administration. A coalition of 21 states sued Biden on March 17, arguing he overstepped his constitutional authority when he revoked the federal permit for the Keystone XL Pipeline on his first day in office.

A group of Republican attorneys general threatened further legal action against the Biden administration in a letter to Department of Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen last week. The 21 attorneys general demanded clarity on Biden’s position regarding state tax policy.

Just take back land from federal control and give it to the respective states.

One thing no one can deny is the fact that gas prices have almost doubled since Senile Joe issued executive orders ending construction on the Keystone pipeline and the stopping of drilling on federal lands where we were getting our domestic crude. Now we are depending on foreign crude from countries that hate us but love our money. I can testify myself that I am paying right at a dollar a gallon more now than when senile Joe took office which amounts to roughly $20. per tank. This increase may not sound like much but it amounts to around $100. a month that is $1200. a year and when you live on a fixed income that is a lot of money.

Secession is the only way to handle this division in our nation.  If not secession in a uncontested divorce (see Czech Republic and Slovakia) we are a couple months from all out Revolution.

Lawsuits won't do any good because courts, especially the supreme court, are corrupt. The devildemocommiecrat plan is to bankrupt America and its citizens. This bullshiite doesn't hurt the ultra wealthy political ruling class or their ultra wealthy kickback enjoying financiers!!!!!!!!!!
