Judge Blocks Biden’s Ban on Oil and Gas Leases


The Biden administration is attempting to ban oil and gas leases on federal lands and a federal judge has stepped in to issue a preliminary block to that move.

According to Fox Business:

A federal judge in Louisiana issued a preliminary injunction blocking the Biden administration from pausing new oil and gas leases on federal land.

Judge Terry A. Doughty of the U.S. District Court in Monroe said the administration doesn’t have the legal right to stop leasing federal territory for oil-and-gas production without approval from Congress.

The judge, appointed by former President Donald Trump, also said that states suing the federal government—largely southern and coastal states—will be harmed immediately as the pause prevents them from collecting lease bids and bonuses from oil-and-gas prospectors.

The suit was filed by the states of Louisiana, Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and West Virginia.

An interesting fact the judge pointed out is that some of the funds from oil and gas leases go to restoring Louisiana’s coast. So, Biden says he is for the environment, but in practice he severely hinders its restoration.

The morons see it quite clearly, but will never admit it. Their hate for Trump far exceeds their buyers remorse for Bidung.

All plastics, including plastic bottles, some fabrics, battery casings, MANY medical items, along with literally thousands of other items, would be gone, if we use no oil. Natural gas, diesel, it is just a 2-year old mindset – not thinking ahead, if at all….

Joe Biden, et al, are truly evil people, who want to control an American dictatorship they are trying to create. It’s a shame we aren’t a parliamentary system; we could get rid of the Democrat bastards overnight. In our system, it will take us until the 2022 elections, and then another 2 years to the 2024 elections. (Unless the military will live up to their military oaths and remove this piece of pro Communist scum from the white House.)

I love it when biteme gets the middle finger salute. Just like he did in Brussels when everyone just walked by him. They know he’s fraudulent. Why did they even invite him? Or let him in? Just ignore him and maybe he’ll get the message. A majority of people in the USA will applaud, the copy machines? Maybe not so much.

All this stuff is being prompted by joe’s shadow government. After the debacle in front of the world it’s absolutely obvious this guy has NO CLUE what’s going on, where he’s at much less what comes out of his mouth. I think he has an ear piece. Why was the Sec of state in the meeting with Putin? Did you see his press conference where he lost it with a reporter?
This senile creature needs to step down ASAP.

Conservative lawfare at last!!
The Left has hobbled conservatism for decades with frivolous lawsuits — now we’re starting to take the fight to them with substantial lawsuits & honest facts.
Out, out damned Libs ( apologies to the Bard).

Joe Biden and his cronies are all idiots. This isn’t the 30’s. I work in O&G and have for over 20 years. O&G work to preserve these leases. Why wouldn’t they? Environmentally could something happen. Of course. But it is unlikely. The money coming into these states help to preserve and protect. God I can’t stand this neanderthal, idiot president.

Let us not speak of those Biden voters who are (1) fraudulent, or (2) dead. As for the rest of them, they were effectively brainwashed in the principle sacrament of the new Secular Leftist Religion: ‘Orange man bad.’ Enough hatred can blind one’s eyes to any truth.

The Old Sock Puppet in Chief is probably filling his Crime Family Off Shore Bank accounts with kickbacks from the Russian Oligarchs and Mideast Oil Sheiks by crippling the U.S. Petroleum Industry. That’s always the way with members of the Democrat Crime Organization. Themselves first America last.

This kind of stay should be done for the Keystone pipeline. Gives us one more route to supply the blue states with oil products when the Russians put an American supply route up to a bitcoin ransom again.

Biden and the Demcrats either know the disastrous effects of what they have done with respect to the oil and gas industries…. OR they don’t. Either way the result is the same.

These damn democrats do whatever the hell they want at our expense–by CROOK or BY HOOK-they think the constitution does not apply to them or rules don’t apply to them. They all need to be drug tested for cocaine use (power tripping on their BIG EGOS) and all need mental health evaluations.
