One of Joe Biden’s first acts was to begin dismantling the infrastructure President Trump built to make our country energy independent for the first time in decades.
He signed an executive order canceling the Keystone XL pipeline.
Never mind that states had already spent hundreds of millions of dollars on infrastructure preparing for the pipeline to come through.
Never mind that the BS surrounding the construction of the pipeline delayed it for more than a decade.
Trump knew our country needed it. He knew it would make us stronger.
He was right.
But Biden’s left-wing Marxist handlers want to bring America to its knees, so they had him cancel Keystone.
Well, 21 states led by Montana are now saying “not so fast, bro.”
Legal Insurrection reports:
Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and 19 other state attorneys general filed suit today in United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas to block President Joe Biden's unconstitutional and illegitimate attempt to cancel the Keystone XL Pipeline (KXLP).
Despite several exhaustive studies undertaken by the Obama State Department that concluded the Keystone XL pipeline would boost the U.S economy, create American jobs, and safely transport oil throughout the country without increasing greenhouse gas emissions, Biden revoked the permit via executive order mere hours after reciting his oath of office. However, he did not have the power to do so.
PJ Media adds: “The substance of the lawsuit is straightforward. Congress, not the president, regulates interstate commerce. Biden violated that when he unilaterally blocked the construction of the pipeline. As has been Biden's MO since the inauguration, he failed to even consult Congress or any of the states affected by the decision. He has done the same with regard to the border, and is now facing a massive crisis of his own making there.”
This is the strategy, folks — sue the bejesus out of the Biden regime in order to preserve liberties or, in this case, our energy security (and massive investments of money).
Democrats love to overreach and this is the only way to keep them in check short of something too terrible to contemplate.
Biden's inflation is GETTING WORSE by the month...
Around the world, supply chains continue to be disrupted. Delays are now commonplace. And they're going to get worse.
There IS a financial reset coming - that's just true. All the signs indicate as much.
