China Joe Voting New Mexico Now Super Concerned Over Drilling Moratorium

New Mexico voted 54-43 for China Joe. But, hey, mean Tweets, right?

We all know that the 60 day moratorium will be more like four years, right? You can bet the leaders in New Mexico know it won’t end as long as Joe (or Kamala) is in office. From the link

President Joe Biden’s 60-day moratorium on new oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits is prompting widespread concerns in New Mexico, where spending on education and other public programs hinges on the industry’s success.

Top Republicans in the state as well as local leaders in communities that border the Permian Basin — one of the most productive regions in the U.S. — say any moves to make permanent the suspension would be economically devastating for the state. Half of New Mexico’s production happens on federal land and amounts to hundreds of millions of dollars in royalties each year.

Congressional members from other western states also are raising concerns, saying the ripple effects of the moratorium will hurt small businesses already struggling because of the pandemic.

“During his inauguration, President Biden spoke about bringing our nation together. Eliminating drilling on public lands will cost thousands of New Mexicans their jobs and destroy what’s left of our state’s economy,” Carlsbad Mayor Dale Janway told The Associated Press on Friday. “How does that bring us together? Environmental efforts should be fair and well-researched, not knee-jerk mandates that just hurt an already impoverished state.” (snip)

Industry groups said the order effectively brings all regulatory activity to a halt, from routine requests that arise during the normal course of business to requests for rights of way for new pipelines designed to gather more natural gas as part of efforts to reduce venting and flaring — practices that Democrats have targeted in their fight against climate change.

Yet, Joe is still using fossil fuels to travel around, as are all his appointees. As Jason Chaffetz notes

Hey, New Mexico, you voted for this. You get what you vote for. In this case, thousands and thousands of people will be out of a job. Biden’s pause on oil cause for big concern in New Mexico #BetYouMissTrumpNow

You get what you vote for. Mean tweets from Trump vs really bad policies for America and Americans from Biden.

As a side issue, it also makes you consider “why in the hell does the U.S. government own so much state land?” 34% of New Mexico is owned by the federal government. Over one third. There are certainly states much worse (Ca, Alaska, Oregon, Utah, Nevada, Idaho (yup, 61.6%)), but, Los Federales should not have that much power in a state in a Federal Republic.

Anyhow, when gas prices and energy prices (natural gas) start spiking, don’t blame Trump.

    “Anyhow, when gas prices and energy prices (natural gas) start spiking, don’t blame Trump.”

    That will be my only political satisfaction for the next (at least) 2 years, laughing at the idiots who can’t understand why everything’s getting more expensive and scarcer.

      Joey is bound and determined to start another economic Great Depression.

      His nominee Buttplug is already railing about doubling or tripling the federal tax on gasoline.

      Less than a week in office and people are already sensing buyer’s remorse.

        Actually, John-the Dow was about 26925 on Nov. 3rd and was 30,996 on Friday. That’s about 15% . When Trump was elected, the Dow was at 17,888, and finished at 26995 on Nov,3rd. That’s up 50%. Capitalists love Trump.

    3 Unions That Endorsed Biden Seem Like They’re Already Regretting It
    By Erin Coates | Published January 22, 2021 at 3:37pm

    Three unions seemed to be regretting endorsing President Joe Biden after his first day in office.

    Biden revoked the construction permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline on Wednesday, destroying thousands of union jobs.

    “Leaving the Keystone XL pipeline permit in place would not be consistent with my Administration’s economic and climate imperatives,” Biden said, according to The Associated Press.

    Keystone XL President Richard Prior said more than 1,000 unionized jobs would also be eliminated in the next few weeks as it slowly shuts down the construction of the 1,700-mile pipeline.

    The United Association of Union Plumbers was one group that endorsed Biden last year, saying he would help it “win more work with good wages and benefits.”

    “This endorsement is about putting UA members to work and fighting for fair wages and good benefits,” General President Mark McManus said in August.

    Less than a year later, the union has expressed disappointment in Biden.

    “In revoking this permit, the Biden Administration has chosen to listen to the voices of fringe activists instead of union members and the American consumer on Day 1,” McManus said in a statement.

    “Sadly, the Biden Administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work. For the average American family, it means energy costs will go up and communities will no longer see the local investments that come with pipeline construction.”

    North America’s Building Trades Union, which also endorsed Biden last year, said it was “deeply disappointed” in the decision to revoke the permit.

    “Environmental ideologues have now prevailed, and over a thousand union men and women have been terminated from employment on the project,” NATBU president Sean McGarvey said in a statement.

    “On a historic day that is filled with hope and optimism for so many Americans and people around the world, tens of thousands of workers are left to wonder what the future holds for them.

    “In the midst of a pandemic that has claimed 400 thousand American lives and has wreaked havoc on the economic security and standard of living of tens of millions more, we must all stand in their shoes and acknowledge the uncertainty and anxiety this government action has caused.”

    There’s more at the original, but this is no surprise at all to anyone who paid any attention. Mr Biden has done just what he promised to do! But the left have no flaming idea what life is really like for the working-class, nor do they care.

    in Idaho we cherish the Wild Public Lands, yes they are “Federal”, but they’re free for all Americans to enjoy. Try changing that here and you are met with a fierce response…

    Amazing that China Joe doesn’t understand that fracking is what has allowed the US to decrease their CO2 emissions, for those that are scared of CO2. He obviously knows that even though 3 phases of Keystone have already been built and are up and running, this last phase will be the one to cause more bad weather…

    Thanks Joey!

    “We have the third largest oil reserves in the world. We ship about, nearly $100 billion worth of energy to the U.S. every year. Keystone XL would have been a significant safe, modern increase in that shipment. It is very — it’s very frustrating that one of the first acts of the new President was, I think, to disrespect America’s closest friend and ally, Canada. And to kill good-paying union jobs on both sides of the border and ultimately to make the United States more dependent on foreign oil imports from OPEC dictatorships. We don’t understand it. And at the very least, we believe that those who’ve invested in this project, trusting in the regulatory process in the U.S. should be compensated by the U.S. administration.” 
    –Alberta Canada Premier Jason Kenney
