It’s hard to look at what Joe Biden has done so far and not ask: “Is he DELIBERATELY trying to run our country into the ground? Or is this just gross negligence?”
Because, honestly, it’s hard to tell.
If you remember, day ONE in office, Biden put the kibosh on, 10,000 American jobs—at the very minimum!—when he canceled construction on the Keystone XL pipeline that would connect Canada and the US with one of the cleanest ways to transport oil.
10,000 jobs is the rough estimate, but it could be MORE when you look at how many FUTURE jobs blinked out of existence with the quick stroke of Biden’s pen.
He then killed more jobs when he canceled the construction of the border wall between the US and Mexico. Luckily, that wasn’t his project to kill and wall construction has restarted—much to the chagrin of the current administration.
However, Sleepy Joe wasn’t done there.
He killed even MORE American jobs when he banned fracking on federal land—and since most fracking leases were on federal land to begin with, it all but decimated the industry.
It seems that being energy independent isn’t nearly as important to Biden as it was to Donald Trump.
What a shame.
The Pettiness Of Joe Biden
And that’s what it all comes down to, right? Joe Biden’s campaign to erase Donald Trump’s accomplishments from existence is all-consuming. The current president has a seething and irrational hatred towards #45, and he won’t let Trump’s accomplishments survive…even when the vast majority of them have HELPED the American people.
But since he’s destroyed so many jobs, you have to wonder whether it’s the hatred that’s clouding his judgment, incompetence getting in his way, or his actual goal to make America weaker with each executive order he signs.
Well, this question was recently raised once again when Biden killed even MORE oil industry jobs in Alaska in yet another attack on Trump’s accomplishments, punishing the American working class in the process.
What’d he do?
Well, Biden’s administration said it would suspend oil and gas leases that were handed out in an Alaska wildlife refuge during the final days of the Trump administration with the possibility of them being reinstated pending an environmental review.
This action reverses one of Trump’s signature efforts to expand fossil fuel development in the United States, but it also puts Alaska and the working class in that state behind the 8-ball. State government officials had hoped opening the enormous wildlife refuge would help revive Alaska’s declining oil industry.
What Joe Biden Is RISKING With This Move
Alaska GOP Senator Lisa Murkowski said the decision to shut down the drilling operation will cost jobs and put our nation’s energy security at risk…
And she’s 100% right.
She said in a statement: “The Biden administration’s actions are not unexpected but are outrageous nonetheless.”
Of course it’s not a surprise. Biden doesn’t want America to be energy independent anymore, and handcuffing industry in Alaska helps him make it happen.
Murkowski continued, “Suspending leases in Alaska’s 1002 Area is in direct conflict with the 2017 Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, through which Congress mandates an oil and gas leasing program be established on the non-wilderness Coastal Plain, and ordered at least two lease sales by 2024. In addition, The Act specifically states that the purpose of the 1002 area of ANWR is oil and gas development. The oil and gas leasing program established by the Trump Administration meets the legal mandates required by Congress including imposing a framework with a range of environmental safeguards that are successfully guiding production elsewhere in northern Alaska.”
This means Biden is most likely overstepping his bounds with this move, making it seem like it’s more malicious than compassionate.
“This action serves no purpose other than to obstruct Alaska’s economy and put our energy security at great risk,” Murkowski closed. “Alaskans are committed to developing our resources responsibly and have demonstrated our ability to do so safely to the world.”
All that being said…do you think Biden cares?
He doesn’t care about anything other than gaining his party MORE power and making sure he’s responsible for erasing all the accomplishments that Trump achieved in his four years as POTUS.
What we can take from all of this is one thing: Biden is pettier than we thought…and that’s not a great trait for a president.
