Almost Half U.S. States Sue Biden For Revoking Keystone Pipeline

During the Trump era, Democrats sued Trump for doing things that were pro-America, and because they had Trump Derangement Syndrome. During the China Joe era, Republicans are suing Biden as he does things bad for Americans

21 states sue Biden for revoking Keystone XL permit

Biden Brain SlugA coalition of states with Republican attorneys general sued President Biden on Wednesday over his decision to revoke a key permit for the Keystone XL oil pipeline.

The lawsuit from 21 states, led by Texas and Montana, argues that revoking the cross-border permit is a “regulation of interstate and international commerce” that should be left to Congress and that Biden’s move was an overreach.

The Republican attorneys general also argued that the decision was arbitrary and capricious.

Some of the states represented in the lawsuit have Democratic governors, including Kentucky and Kansas, though all of them have Republican attorneys general.

“Cabinet Defendants’ actions … have the possibility of depriving States and local governments of millions of dollars in revenues. Yet, far from providing a reasoned explanation for why they are taking their actions, they have not provided any reason at all,” the suit states.

Let’s not forget that even Obama’s State Department found that the pipeline was safe, and much better than transporting fossil fuels over long stretches of road and rail. But, Keystone XL caused butthurt in enviroweenies, becoming their Main Cause, so, Biden has tried to end it. Which means, get this, Canada will send the oil to their west coast and on to China.

In a statement on the lawsuit, Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen (R) called Biden’s cancellation of the permit “an empty virtue signal to his wealthy coastal elite donors.”

“The power to regulate foreign and interstate commerce belongs to Congress – not the President. This is another example of Joe Biden overstepping his constitutional role to the detriment of Montanans,” he added.

Joe doesn’t care about the loss of jobs, nor the rising cost of fuel and energy. His is paid for, plus, he got plenty rich via his government jobs. I suspect Joe, well, really his advisors, will create plenty more opportunities for lawsuits going forward.

    Waah! Waah! Butthurt Republicans everywhere!

    Sounds as if Republican AGs have BDS (Biden Derangement Syndrome).

    Waah! Waah! “President Biden is hurting the economy!” Recall that the former president had the worst jobs record in history.

    BDS

    The pipeline developers just need to get over their traditional American values of being against graft and corruption and pay the damned bribes. Hire a few Bidens, Pelosis, and people with degrees on race studies for their boards. Buy some “offsets” and carbon certificates. Spread around that walking around money. That’s how you get things done in the Biden economy.

      I guess the car companies need to do that too since the WSJ reports today: JUST IN: The United Auto Workers union has informed workers that Ford plans to move a major project worth $900 million from Ohio to its plant in Mexico.

      Trump worked very hard to keep manufacturing and big business in America. He used tax incentives, tarriffs and the threat of him going on TV for week after week telling the people what they are doing if they decided to move a plant or lay off 10,000 workers.

      The UAW should have backed Trump, not that fascist usurper Xiden. The Junta screwed energy industry and now the auto industry. Who’s next? Oh, I guess the people.
