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.

  1. Hallelujah – great judge. They will just have to keep on smacking Biden down until he get’s it through his senile head he is not God or king of the world.

  2. It’s about time someone puts a foot down to this moron destroying our country. Just to say. “ I did away with all the good President Trump did”. Remember the saying. “ the devil you know is better than the devil you don’t know”. Well Biden has gone an done everything he said he would not do.


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

    2. He is being told what to do and having problems trying to do that. This is all from a 3rd term president whom we all know who it is and what they are doing. So tell me when is something gonna be done about it??????

    1. Not only that the oil and gas are used to run the machines that produce plastics for this recycling world, where the heck do these people come from who don’t even have a clue!!!

    2. The loony liberals are screaming about the sad state that Highway 50 is through CO but they don’t want oil to be drilled~~ I guess they think asphalt is made from unicorn poop.

      1. If you were to ask one of them where asphalt comes from they would tell you from road ways, like milk comes from the store.

    3. 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….

  3. 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.)

    1. This would be the best thing that could happen to the USA. Put him to rest in bed with his sippy cup and chocolate milk (slightly warmed so not to hurt his little mouth.)

  4. Good move Judge, finally got some with sense. Of course PRESIDENT Trump had to put some Judges in there that are FOR AMERICA. GOD BLESS PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP !!!!!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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).

  8. 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.

  9. Can’t we just post Biden for sale on EBay so that the Chinese and Russian governments can buy him? Oh right, they already did.

    1. Sure you can, but you also have to put in some fairy dust and Bigfoot poop in all the right proportions. Any liberal can tell you the recipe.

  10. Pray, even if you never did before or do not know how. Satan army (all who are unsaved) is slowly gearing up for their final battle prior to their defeat. If this is not abundantly clear to you, find a Biblical friend or a Bible believing church.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.
