The torrent of ruinous policy emanating from the White House continues unabated.

As one internet memester put it, “pace yourself Joe, you have four years.  You don’t have to destroy the country your first week.”

Generations of Americans worked tirelessly to achieve energy independence.  They realized the dream at last, until President Biden rushed not only to shut down the Keystone XL pipeline, but now to block future oil and gas leases on all federal lands.

Energy analyst Ron Stein writes at CFACT.org that “Biden, like his favorite state of California, is doing everything possible to INCREASE the cost of electricity and fuels, that drives up the cost of everything.”

President Biden also ordered the entire federal fleet of over 600,000 cars and trucks be converted to electric vehicles, no matter where they are!  Good luck finding a place to charge those short-range monuments to inefficiency if you work outside the densely packed world where Biden’s energy team lives.

Slamming America back into the one-sided Paris Climate Agreement is just the tip of Biden’s climate iceberg.  Marc Morano posted calls by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer for President Biden to bypass the legislative process by declaring a “climate emergency” to Climate Depot. Don’t underestimate how dangerous this is.  Never-ending emergencies is how foreign autocrats govern, not American presidents.

As Peter Murphy writes at CFACT.org:

“President Biden is off to an ominous beginning with his executive orders on climate and energy. CFACT warned early and often this was coming. His actions reveal he cares more for the concerns of politically powerful environmental elites than for the livelihoods of American workers and consumers who will pay with their lost jobs and higher energy costs.”

“Fasten your seatbelts, America. There is plenty more to come, and it won’t be pretty.”
