Over Twenty States Are Now Suing The Biden Administration Over The Closure Of The Keystone XL Pipeline

It’s still hard to believe that as one of his first acts as president, Joe Biden shut down the Keystone XL Pipeline, killing thousands of good American jobs in the process.

Just think of all the American families whose lives came to a halt instantly, wondering how they would pay for their homes, cars and education for their children.

States started suing almost immediately and some new states have joined the effort, bringing the total to over twenty.

“The Constitution is clear that presidents do not have the power to regulate foreign and interstate commerce or to unilaterally undo an act of Congress,” said Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen, announcing that Alaska and Florida are joining the legal fight.

In the statement, Knudsen said U.S. consumers would benefit the most by the construction of the pipeline — and are subsequently hurt the most by its cancellation.

“The fallout from the Colonial pipeline cyberattack made it very clear that we need more energy infrastructure, not less. The Keystone XL would get more oil, including Montana oil, to American refineries to be sold to American consumers,” he said.

Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody and Alaska Attorney General Treg Taylor were added to a complaint filed with the United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Thursday, bringing the total number of states in the lawsuit to 23.

At the same time that this is happening, remember that Biden had no problem with Russia having an oil pipeline.

Biden - what a dick head.

The saddest part about the Biden admin's rationalization about it was that only 1,100 people were going to lose their jobs and they could get work in the wind and solar areas making more money.
Texas showed how reliable wind and solar is when they had that freeze.
Also, Joe, it was way more than 1,100 jobs. It was closer to 10,400. Apparently the Biden Admin's don't think seasonal workers are full time even tho they were making $70,000 working on that pipe line when weather permitted.

[@15458,Usedtohaveanoffensiveusername] Man I am telling you. One guy got a bill for something like $30,000. I would puke for a week. LOL
They are rushing the whole electric car thing and the wind and solar. It needs to prove it's self reliable for a while in many different conditions.
Dainbramadge · 51-55, M
[@603039,AbbySvenz] They have had issues with them freezing up forever. The blades get froze and they won't spin. They try to go out and deice them with some chemical and steam but it doesn't work long. You can do that to an airplane because when it gets in the air flying it's fine.
Dainbramadge · 51-55, M
[@15458,Usedtohaveanoffensiveusername] Yeah the spinny twisty things??? I watched a video on them and those are very cool. Some race car owner is involved in it but I can't remember which one.
Biden pandered to a few supporters and hurt many ... across many states

He is a selfish ruler
MrBrownstone · 41-45, M
Biden will destroy America. He is unfit to serve.
[@1149,MrBrownstone] echos you
Spotpot · 41-45, M
Very few jobs would be created by the pipeline and its very unpopular acros the US.
[@1206109,Spotpot] a few big muscle men would get a job and the rest of us would have ALL OUR environment further degraded.
How many can find stories of leaking pipelines in the recent news? Easy to find. Who talks about that here?

Who talks about RENEWABLES and sustainibility here? Maybe they left already. Maybe their loneliness didn't trump the ignorance here.

Fuckin Trump shut down the fuckin keystone pipeline.😡
[@1207676,LULUBELLE] You are right. Anything for a fight though, anything to act in someone else's best interests, like the corporate state. But Biden is not really human on this stuff either and DARPA is about to get going again and many more, so if you think like a Native (or a ccomplete human being), stay tuned. Nobody really thought this narrow political victory meant anything. Obama was a mouthpiece for the corporate state and this guy was his running mate, soft voice and stumbling senility notwithstanding. I didn't vote 4 anybody in my state, it wouldn't have mattered anyway.
Sibo191 · 36-40, M
It didn't just effect the US. Canada got hit too. Saskatchewan and I believe Alberta are also on the law suit
Spotpot · 41-45, M
[@502796,Sibo191] As i said the oil was meant for exports to the far east not consumption in the US.
Sibo191 · 36-40, M
[@1206109,Spotpot] right... So Canada's sueing over shutting down the pipeline to the us because they want to export to Asia.

Sounds reasonable
Spotpot · 41-45, M
[@502796,Sibo191] If you are a Canadian yes then it sounds reasonable.
MotherHubbard · 56-60, F
Over six billion people are counting on Amerca to stop pumping oil.
[@1201621,MotherHubbard] so am I
Burnley123 · 36-40, M
It's bad and maybe more needs to be done to replace those jobs.

Species survival matters even more.

[@23671,basilfawlty89] The 'scientific consensus ' is in a world of hurt these days. The 'scientific consensus ' has been caught lying so much recently, that the 'scientific consensus ' is no longer trusted.

I can tell you this, the climate has been changing since there has been climate. Taking out a third of the population, killing off cows, throwing civilization back to the 1800's won't stop climate from changing either. You are on a fools errand.

I'm curious, do you leave copies of your [b][i]peer reviewed scientific journals[/i][/b] out on the coffee table for your [b][i]scientific consensus[/i][/b] types to see?
basilfawlty89 · 31-35, M
[@841775,Budwick] Bud, your sources told you that Trump was gonna win the election. That didn't happen. Your sources told you the electoral college would overturn votes. That didn't happen. Your sources said you'd stop the "steal" on January the 6th. That didn't. Your sources said that the supreme court would overturn the election. That didn't happen.

So far my sources really seem more accurate.

Btw...if the planet goes balls up, there's not much of America, humanity or civilisation left. Something to think about while you're arguing for polluting the planet.

I'll let you get back to Alex Jones and the gay frogs now.
CountScrofula · 36-40, M
That pipeline has been in development legal hell for the past eleven years. It's even controversial in Alberta and it's our oil y'all were trying to buy.

Give it up.
Budwick · 70-79, M
[@624254,CountScrofula] The pipeline was approved by Congress. All your whiny concerns were baked in when they [b][i]LEGALLY [/i][/b]approved it.

Biden doesn't have the authority to unilaterally shut it down.
Burnley123 · 36-40, M
[@841775,Budwick] That's not even true.

It only passed Congress with an in built 60 day extra Presedential veto attached. The then president (Obama) used that veto. Trump then revived it through executive order.

One of Biden's manifesto promises was to kill the pipeline and he was elected on that promise.
Deepseeker · 36-40, M
Butt wick - short sighted idiot. That’s all, thanks for listening.
Deepseeker · 36-40, M
[@841775,Budwick] you don’t even know what the real problems are so as far as being an adult, your out.
Deepseeker · 36-40, M
[@839852,BigGuy2] you obviously haven’t figured out how to escape the basement yet. Lol. Such a mystery to you I’m sure. Lol
BigGuy2 · 26-30, M
[@1175373,Deepseeker] ...you can't even be original when TRYING to be funny ... FOOL
DeluxedEdition · 22-25, F
ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh🙂
BigGuy2 · 26-30, M
You couldn't make this sh*t up could you, if i had submitted this nonsense as a book to a publisher, they'd think i was mad
BigGuy2 · 26-30, M
How do these people KEEP escaping from the basement ...

...is it a case of Bidens entourage dragging him out of the basement and they 'Star Burst' when they unlock it ... his entourage saying "don't worry about them, they'll break back into the basement when they're hungry or they want a bedtime story" ..,

🤔 ..."now President, we've combed your hair and wiped your nose, just do as we tell you this time and just repeat words that come out of your ear piece OK"
Aboomachu · 31-35, M
Just 2 more states and that’s half the country! This is good news.
