It’s only been a few months since Joe Biden took over the reins from Donald Trump.
And already we’ve been hit with some of the worst economic problems we’ve seen in decades.
Many think they could have been avoided, but were self-inflicted. Biden has pushed radical policies that contributed to a loss in jobs, growing inflation, and other troubles ahead.
A hacker group—that should have been caught by Biden’s FBI—was able to bring a major pipeline to its knees. Most of the East Coast ran out of gasoline, putting millions at risk.
This only proves how crucial pipelines are to our energy infrastructure.
Now, nineteen states are demanding Biden reconsider one of his first orders.
From The Epoch Times:
Nineteen GOP-led states called on President Joe Biden to reinstate the Keystone XL pipeline following a ransomware attack that shut down the Colonial Pipeline for several days, triggering gas shortages and a spike in prices…
“A temporary shutdown of one pipeline’s full-capacity operations shouldn’t bring half the country to the brink,” the states wrote to Biden on Monday, according to a letter (pdf). “We need more safe and clean energy sources. And that includes the Keystone XL Pipeline.”
Nineteen Republican-led states are calling on Joe Biden to reinstate the Keystone XL pipeline. He killed off the project as one of his first decisions in office.
A legal battle to reinstate the pipeline is currently moving through the courts. But it won’t be needed if Joe has the sense to nix his former decision.
The hack on the Colonial Pipeline was a clear sign that we need safe, reliable methods of transporting gasoline. Without pipelines, this fuel must be shipped via trains or trucks—both of which are much more dangerous (and expensive).
Environmental hippies don’t care, though. They don’t want us using fossil fuels anyway (so their opinion doesn’t matter).
Joe Biden bowed to radical environmental demands when he killed that pipeline. But had we an additional working pipeline, the Colonial hack would have been less damaging.
These Republican leaders are trying to explain to Sleepy Joe that killing a major infrastructure project is not good for the country.
Joe wants to spend trillions on infrastructure, right? So, why did he stop a project that would have brought down the price of gas, secured thousands of jobs, and ensured our energy production?
I can’t answer that question. Can you?
- Nineteen Republican states are urging Joe Biden to cancel his Keystone XL order.
- This comes after the Colonial pipeline was shut down thanks to hackers.
- An additional pipeline would have ensured the hack was less damaging.
