Joseph Curl: Statistics Joe Biden Will Ignore In His Speech
"Joseph Kerr over at the daily wires done a hell of a job of putting some basic statistics together that you will not hear tonight Let's start with inflation just a few months ago he says had a 40 year high December 2020 the last full month in office for president Trump The rate of inflation was 1.4% The average for the entire year was 1.2% In its first 6 months in office inflation went from 1.4 to 5.4% under Biden It's worse than 2022 Went to 9.1% last June The Biden is a highly skilled liar Inflation has fallen for 6 straight months all the way down to 6 and a half percent The average for 2022 is 8% Soaring from 1.2% in 2020 Now some people argue the president shouldn't take credit for a good economy so he certainly doesn't deserve blame for a bad one But in Biden's case he definitely deserves the blame Economists say Biden's pandemic relief policies including the American rescue plan exacerbated matters By giving Americans too much money to spend when goods and services and supplies were too low which drove prices higher rights PolitiFact It was Biden's most profound failure and policy era Douglas holtz eakin president of the center right American action forum told the fact checking site It was also the head of the CBO at one point Also ahead of the CBO Gasoline prices In addition to canceling the Keystone XL pipeline Biden also suspended new federal oil and gas leases Hike drilling fees on federal land and mandated that all federal vehicles be zero emissions
Joe Biden's Presidency: 2 Years Down, 2 Years to Go
"Two years of buying down two to go and some extraordinary measures And it is kind of hard to believe it's only been just over two years You start thinking about time on one hand you know you think oh gosh you know it's already February On the other hand how long does it feel like Joe Biden has been president Hell of a lot longer than two years at this point right Anyway so here we are Barely over halfway through his first guy willing only term But to his credit he's accomplished a heck of a lot of his agenda I mean we haven't arrived at this point with our ever rising interest rates Just by chance He's been highly successful and his agenda And it started with his day one action The executive order killing the Keystone XL pipeline Followed within the first week by additional executive actions levy new regs on the U.S. energy industry Preventing the harvesting of new energy stateside banning energy harvesting altogether on federal lands Actions that inside of a week took the United States from being energy independent to once again being reliant on foreign sources of energy Also that first policy which was the ignition stick for what became our 41 year high rate of inflation You also had that day one action of Biden killing construction of the border wall spending billions of dollars to actually stop projects as opposed to finishing them In addition to reversing president Trump's executive actions on border policy policy ushering in our era of unprecedented illegal immigration

The Democrats' Big Energy Mistake
"You know, if we would have, if we wouldn't have closed down Keystone XL pipeline, if we would have made it wouldn't have made it an absolute nightmare for oil and gas companies to continue drilling and right here in the United States, you know, everything would be hunky Dory, but instead what we did as soon as we got into office, we shut down all the Trump's policies because of the truth of the matter is we want you guys to suffer because we want to transition this great experiment called the United States and of America into something that we wanted all along. We want the elites. We want the haves and the have nots. They're trying to transform society and they think that you're dumb enough to keep falling for this stuff. But a lot of people are waking up.
Biden Destroyed Our Energy Industry Since Week 1
"And can hear the magnitude of what Biden has done to our energy industry He's done more to destroy energy industry than any enemy overseas Any enemy overseas More than the communist Chinese the fascistic Russians more than anybody His first day in office ending Trump's energy independence initiatives Burns some emissions regulations Monument designations Restricts and eliminates drilling an Anwar New rules social costs of carbon dioxide Closes the Keystone XL pipeline Week later January 27 climate financing He taxed the energy industry by promoting ending international financing of carbon intensive fossil fuel based energy Simultaneously advancing so called sustainable development in green recovery He signing executive orders left and right Like Benito Mussolini but he doesn't know what he's signing Green fleet called on all federal agencies to facilitate carbon neutrality by 2025 All federal vehicles and federal state and local governments need to be electric vehicles though that won't hurt the grid Same day January 27th is just this first week win production They continue to push for inefficient fuel sources by setting a goal to double wind production on federal lands by 2025 We have three years

Mike Sommers: Biden's Policies Are Limiting Oil Production
"Mike you know one of the things I want you to talk about we're going to get to your to the plan y'all have which by the way I've read it and read it is really awesome But the ten and 2022 I want you to talk about where we're sitting right now because of the current administration because as I've told people before the two things we've always have been awesome in the United States of America that helped us win wars that helped develop this whole country has been energy and low cost of energy and of course low cost of food And y'all in charge of one of them but y'all not being allowed to do what y'all do best And I think it's a sin in the shame Well you've hit the nail on the head moon I think ever since this administration began when they first acted that they put into place was canceling the Keystone XL pipeline and then pausing leasing and permitting on federal lands and in federal waters which is so important to your home state of Louisiana It's every move they've taken has been to limit American energy production not to advance it And what we're seeing now is they are reaping what they sowed We're seeing limited production in the United States at a time of great demand for American energy Now is the time that they need to reverse those policies step up to the plate and do the things that they need to do to get production back to where it needs to be during a time of energy crisis We continue to see demand outpace supply in this country which is why we're seeing record high prices for gasoline and for natural gas And if they don't reverse these policies we're going to continue to see this energy price inflation on top of inflation that we're seeing in the rest of the economy

Even Lefties Are Concerned About Rising Energy Costs
"Even lefties that are concerned about climate change that are like, ah, melting, I'm melting, I'm melting. Well, you know what? Even the fear of melting melting melting. Is coming in second place to the price of gas and oil. A majority of voters are concerned about rising energy costs in favor increase drilling for oil and gas, huh? What do you say? Who is it that X the Keystone XL pipeline? Would that be a Joe Biden and the Democrat party? Huh? Pretty amazing. Are the most democratic voters do consider reducing climate change a higher priority, but the problem is they're putting they're putting gas in their vehicles and they're like, oh, snap, this is crazy. This is crazy. This is just getting out of hand.

Dinesh Fact-Checks Joe Biden on Oil and Gas
"Faced with oil prices that are high and moving higher, Joe Biden is doubling down and declaring as he just did. Quote, it is simply not true that my administration or policies are holding back domestic energy production. I mean, it's incredible that this guy can look into the cameras and say this with a straight face. And then the media just kind of nods like, yeah, that's right. He's speaking truth. Well, he's not. And since you're not going to get the YouTube or the Facebook fact checkers, checking Biden on this one, they just assume that what he says is true. They only fact check the other side, which is our side. Let me fact check Biden on this. Biden himself is been quoted saying multiple times, including in the presidential debates that he wants to end end fossil fuels. And he wants to end fossil fuels in America. He froze new drilling permits and stopped leases on federal lands. In fact, when he first took office, he moved to ban new oil and gas leases on federal lands, and that's by the way a huge slice of U.S. energy. Now that measure was stopped by the courts, but not for lack of trying by the Biden administration. One of the things that Democrats were saying and this is long before Putin invaded the Ukraine is that we have plenty of energy to meet our domestic needs. We don't need more. So you had the Democrats and you had the media. Basically, promulgating the message that, yeah, we are cutting back on oil and gas and that's a good thing because we don't really, we don't really need it. Of course, no one's going to forget. I don't think you are, that Biden shot down the Keystone XL pipeline on his very first day in office, he signed an executive order, and this was part of his campaign he himself said, the reverse a hundred or more Trump era policies.

Psaki Claims Keystone XL Pipeline Would Make No Difference
"Jen Psaki, she claims that. Increasing the. Oil by restarting Keystone would not address any problem. A restart of the Keystone XL construction completely off the table as long as Joe Biden is president. Well, why don't you tell me what that would help address? I'm asking you if it is an option you guys say, all options are on the table. It's restarting Keystone construction, one of them. If we're trying to bring about more supply, that does not address any problem. It supply from Canada, a friendly ally. And so that's already, we're already getting that

Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick Describes the Long-Term Outlook of Gas Prices
"You've said that this decision to ban Russian energy imports needed to happen. You've been, again, a solid voice on this, but the American people, let's face it, are torn by the images of Ukraine right now, but we're also anguished over the price of the pump that just keeps getting worse. Biden says it's going to get worse. It's just going to keep going up and it's all Russians fault. All Russia's fault. Where do we go from here? Give us a little bit of guidance over the next few weeks, months and what this is going to look like domestically. Yeah, Mike, so the common thread that runs between both the horrific images you're seeing on TV, the loss of life in Ukraine, and higher prices of the pump here in the United States. It's a common thread. It's bad decisions on energy policy, poor energy policy, domestically here in the United States and that decisions that have been made by our European allies, including Germany, who have grown a dependence on Russia for their energy source. We were a net energy exporter under the previous administration like the Keystone pipeline was open. We were energy independent, and we were exporting energy. This administration has shut down the Keystone XL pipeline. They've given the thumbs down to the east med, the eastern Mediterranean pipeline, by the way, which is not many people are talking about, but they should be, which was an Israeli pipeline and other democracy that could have supplied Europe with energy. And then we open up the corrupts Nord stream two pipeline that makes people even in Europe. Even more dependent on Vladimir Putin. So their energy policy is completely backwards and upside down.

The US Won't Have a Pipeline to Canada, but Russia Has One With China?
"I mean, we won't have a pipeline. Between Canada and the U.S., yet Russia gets to have one with China. Think about the implications of that. Joe Biden's killing Keystone, XL, despite the fact that it would mean better energy independence here in the free world in the western hemisphere. No, he'd rather take oil from Russia. Like that makes a lot of sense. I mean, at least Germany's figured out probably not so smart to have those natural gas pipelines that you're relying on from Russia. I'll tell you, we need to think long and hard. Because we're also making mistakes right here in our hemisphere, and I have said for years now, for years, that we should not be allowing our western hemisphere. A country like Venezuela to be influenced as heavily as it's being influenced by the Russians by the Chinese by the Iranians. This is a country that has cultural similarities to us that we should be working with.

Biden Chooses Putin Over Energy Independence
"Vladimir Putin continue to do this stuff in Eastern Europe. Or you can have cheap and affordable energy. It's that simple. They're tied together. And the Biden regime recently ignored a law requiring a report on how many jobs were lost in the Keystone XL pipeline cancellation. Quote, the Biden administration continues to flout a law that requires it to produce a report on the number of jobs lost by canceling the Keystone XL pipeline in addition to describing how its action may have impacted energy markets. So while you are telling everyone about how Ukraine is this wonderful democracy and it's not it's a super corrupt country and yes, Russia is a super corrupt country. Here's a good rule of thumb, everybody, okay? When two corrupt countries want to go to war, probably a good opportunity for us to kind of watch. Usually that's not a, don't put that in like the ten commandments of foreign intervention, but Ukraine is not exactly Spain.

Remember When Biden Killed Domestic Oil Production to Rely on International Sources?
"Joe Biden came in and immediately killed the Keystone XL pipeline killing thousands of high paying union jobs It's about energy and dependence And then he okayed the Russian oil and gas pipeline going to Germany because that helps out Russia and Putin Remember Hunter Biden got three and a half $1 million from the wife of the mayor of Moscow but pay no attention to that That's not a news story No controversy there He okayed the pipeline had undermines NATO because NATO was stood up was created the North Atlantic Treaty Organization to stare down and oppose Russia and the Soviet Union And that's Vladimir Putin is doing what he can to reconstitute the Soviet Union which he called the collapse of the Soviet Union The greatest or one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century All that good stuff So he's helping out Russia and Putin and undermining NATO by okaying the gulf what Nordstrom two pipeline And undermining the United States and energy independence by doing away with the Keystone XL pipeline and all those thousands of union jobs They lie to you about how many jobs were involved And no there were only 7 jobs They literally came up with ridiculous numbers like that Well now a new story popped yesterday not because of the funnies at The Washington Post or anything But a memo was uncovered And the Jake Sullivan the national security adviser to the current president of the United States On the need for reliable and stable global energy markets And now you see the Biden White House is going to OPEC The organization of petroleum exporting countries And that would be Saudi Arabia to Venezuela and a number of countries in between And they're asking OPEC to increase

Wood that I had the magic wand on this, as you know, of course, oil is a global market. It is controlled by a cartel that cartel is called OPEC, and they debated decision yesterday that they were not going to increase beyond what they were already planning. Incredible. The cliche would take would be, that would be to let them eat cake responsive it. And by the way, the commentator wasn't going for it at all. He asked a very serious question from Bloomberg, and she just starts cackling and laughing. Like, oh yeah, like I could control that. They destroyed the Keystone XL pipeline. They remove fracking and fracking licenses and leases. So incredibly arrogant. And I've called for this for quite some time. We have to tell Republican governors to disobey Joe Biden and resume construction on the Keystone XL pipeline immediately. We've said this on the show for a while. I say this when I travel. Let's just put it into a piece. Have I wrote that PC? I don't think I have yet. I can't remember what we're doing anymore. Write the piece. I will write the piece this week. We'll get it done. And it's very simple. It's that wire Republican governor's putting up with this. Republican governors could fix the energy price crisis now. And people say, well, Charlie, the federal government says that we can't do that. Oh, you mean like how San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland and Seattle? They say they don't want to enforce immigration law, and they allow rapists and murderers to go free without giving them to immigration customs and enforcement. You mean like that kind of disobeying with the federal government? You mean like Colorado, Nevada and Washington and Oregon, saying they're going to legalize marijuana against federal drug law? You mean kind of like that? No, I'm saying that it's long past time that we start to put our country first and say, Joe Biden, thanks for playing, man. You're destroying our energy grid, gas prices are going up in one of the most expensive winters on record. We're going to build the Keystone XL pipeline. And we're going to force you to bring federal agents in and arrest them, but that would require. Let's just put it nicely. Courage

C. energy says it will work with government regulators to ensure a safe exit from the partially built pipeline that it was planning to use to run crude from the oil sand fields of western Canada to Nebraska and then use other lines to the Gulf coast the company cites the inability of Canadian officials to persuade president Biden to reverse his cancellation of the pipeline's permit the pipeline had been a campaign issue former president trump revived the project saying it would create thousands of construction jobs but president Biden halted it over local environmental issues and overall concerns that burning oil sands crude would worsen global warming hi Jackie Quinn

Allow the granular and we Shoot off the cuff sometimes Or oftentimes i should say because a lot of a lot of these aspects you know they deserve a little bit more you know granularity as far as the inner workings. I mean it. You talk about being lockstep will take it if it's a free market you know even if this wasn't free market because it's outside intervention from on high It resets a balance that needed to take place. So we're also pragmatists in the sense that however we had to get there however we get there you know we'd love it to happen naturally and organically at this point. That's almost a pie in the sky. Simply because you know there's been so much intervention from both sides that we we just wanna see some sort of balance coming And honestly a hunter we have a spike coming in my opinion from the aforementioned things that i talked about demand coming back online a restricted a potential restricted production drilling new subsequent drilling but also from shut-ins of the lag of it coming back online a production that was cut in the past year That short across the complex that inadvertent Setting a price ceiling that eventually causes it to be a floor in spite But also interest rates which is the four hundred thousand pound gorilla that nobody's talking about it and if we get sixty seventy bucks at this interest rate these interest rates levels were the curve. It starting into the talking. The interest rate curve now whereas it went flat and then it inverted if it just starts to rising tide lifts all boats where You know a new of bottom set with all these people locking up thirty year. Interest rates thirty year fixed mortgages for two percent in gme but and and they're going to be the lucky ones because i really think the last the last bus is pulling away on kaz in in the next five years. I don't see that even being visible in the rear view You know third are. Yeah but we could be lucky. We would be lucky to get five six seven percent like it was in the mid mid nuts two thousand and And and who knows it could be a replay of the savings and loan boondoggle back in the eighties when volker had to step in because of inflation and increasing that is that is one part of this. That is the fact that you've gotten used to printing may or may and we were and we and we had the luxury of not only being the global reserve currency guys but we were also the best game in town so even if the federal government and the federal reserve prince prince prince but people nali At home here in the us but abroad house their their their net liquidity in dollars or dollar denominated assets. There's always going to be a home for that. If you have crypto currencies now being an avenue with which to get off the grid or divest gold and metal spiking crude oil just across the board. We could have to hell with two hundred dollar crude because of supply and demand it could happen just on a pure inflationary spike. That's been a long time coming.

On CBS's face the Nation, Lamont says transparency and vaccine numbers is the most important thing The Biden administration can deliver. Right now. The Democrat governor says teachers will be in an early group to get vaccines. A top health official at Johns Hopkins University, says he's pleased by President Biden's response to the Corona virus Pandemic. On Fox News Sunday, Doctor Tom Inglesby per I used the new administration specifically mentioning the strategy surrounding vaccines More than 1000. Supporters of opposition leader Alexei Navalny are under arrest during protests across Russia. Reuters reports. Security forces have been breaking up the rallies today in dozens of locations across the country where protesters are demanding navalny be free. That's the latest I'm Cameron Fairchild. This his balance of power with David Western on Bloomberg Radio President Joe Biden took Morrell executive action this week to combat climate change, including temporarily blocking new leases for oil drilling on federal lands and ordering a review of fossil fuel subsidies. While announcing the action, the president said, We've waited too long to address the problem. In my view, we've already waited too long to do with this climate crisis. We can't wait any longer for a view from the oil and gas industry. I spoke with Mike Somers, CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, to get his reaction to the executive order to block the Keystone XL pipeline. You know, we really view this is a significant step backwards both for environmental progress and for economic recovery pipelines of the safest, most responsible way. That we can transport the oil and gas that America needs and the Keystone XL pipeline was going to be a way to connect. Canadian producers to the products that Americans need on a daily basis. So we were very, very disappointed with that decision. Is it dead? Well, I mean, this is a project that's been 10 years in the making. And based on the The jobs that were cut as a consequence of this decision. I think it's very concerning from our perspective that this project is probably not going to go forward at this time. I'd remind you that this is about 10,000 union jobs, good paying jobs. That that would have occurred as a consequence of the Keystone XL pipeline. And just on the day after they made this announcement, $2000 for cut, So we were very disappointed in this decision. So that's obviously very hard news for the people involved directly. What about more broadly for our energy policy? What is the practical effect of not having Keystone XL? Well, The truth of the matter is is that these products are coming to the United States from Canada, Canada, one way or another. We're gonna come on rail. Primarily, we would have preferred, of course for them to come. The pipeline, which is the safest and, of course, most environmentally responsible way to do it. You know, the Keystone XL Pipeline PC Energy, the parent company of Keystone, they'd actually promised to fully power. The pipeline itself by renewables by 2030. This was a win win win. It had passed every environmental task that had the past the Canadian government was fully supportive of this. Project as well. So I think it's a real loss for for the American people. We're still gonna use oil and gas. The question is whether or not where we're going to get it from, and unfortunately this is a policy that is going to force us to import. Products from elsewhere will continue to get these products from Canada but will become more dependent on regimes that are hostile to American needs. Because of this decision. So, Mike, I'm gonna ask you to something really hard, which put the jersey and for the other team now, what drove the Biden administration to this? What's their argument says This is why we should not have this pipeline. Well, I mean, unfortunately, David, I think it was politics. This this pipeline has become the symbol for many of the in the activist community to shut shutdown development of fossil fuels in Canada. And the United States. Unfortunately, the world's going to continue to demand these products, and there's no shutting down that demand, at least in the short term, and I think our view is that we should be getting it from our number one trading partner. In the in the country of Canada and will continue to advocate for this kind of energy infrastructure that's going toe ensure that Americans have supply of supply of safe and reliable and affordable energy. How badly does this hurt Canada? Well, you have to check in with President Trudeau as a zoo. You know, he was a huge supporter of this pipeline development on that is a country that is very dependent on revenue from fossil fuel development. So we're concerned about our number one trading partner and what this does for the bilateral relationship. Where is the next skirmish? Likely to be? Well, we know that activists on the other side of this industry. Have targeted fossil fuel infrastructure as a way to stop production in the United States. They figured out that the United States is the number one Place where we're producing oil and natural cat gas now. On the world's going to continue to demand these products. So what the activist community has done is they focused on this infrastructure in the middle. So we understand that every one of these pipelines is going to have to be Advocated for and we're will continue to push for that infrastructure to be developed because we want to provide affordable and reliable fuel to the American people. Are there other big pipelines there waiting for permission? Well, just about every pipelines. A fight right now is, you know, so we're working with all of our member companies on that development, and we want to work with the by the administration on that as well. Environmental issues are keystone for our industry as well. And we want to make sure these products are delivered in a way that is safe for the environment, and we know that pipelines are the best way. Transport these products to the American people. It strikes me that you are in an industry that is tied to fossil fuels, and you now have an administration that seems really committed to trying to reduce your industry. How do you handle that? You know what I'll say is that you know, we think there's actually a lot of room for common ground with this administration. You know we worked with. You know, President Biden when he was vice president when he was senator. He's always been a moderately minded individual that's cared about. You know the United States and American energy independence, So we feel that their ways that we can come to compromise on some of these big issues. One example of that is we know that he wants to further regulate methane emissions. This industry a P I. My member companies are all committed to that, and we want to work with this administration on reducing methane emissions, which would include regulation at the federal level. That's one area where we think that we can find common ground well, that there are others as well. Nothing in this strike me as something that might be an area where actually you can make fossil fuels Mork consistent with the climate. Is that the idea? Basically, there are other areas like that. Yeah, you know, let me give you one other example the issue of trade. You know, President Biden has always been someone that has been a free trader wanting to open up markets overseas. One way that we think that we can reduce, uh, the risks of climate change worldwide. Is to export us liquefied natural gas. Let me give you a couple of examples of where that would be really helpful China, for example. Currently they get two thirds of their power from coal if we can switch their their energy mix from coal to natural gas, which is what has happened in the United States, primarily and that has led to a decline in emissions. There would be a significant decline in emissions from China, helping reducing them to reduce the risks of climate change. The same is true in India, they get they get three quarters of their power from coal. If we can use American natural gas to improve their environmental footprint. That's something that we think should unite Republicans Democrats on everyone who's interested in expanding American energy. One of those first executive orders that was signed by President Biden was toe put America back into the Paris climate accord. Where are you on that? So a P I on our member companies have long supported the ambitions of the Paris agreement. The ambition of the Paris agreement is the lower emissions worldwide, but also to provide for sustainable development and to reduce poverty. Those are gold. I think that all of us can get behind. So we're looking forward to working with the by the administration on developing politics policies that that get us more in line with Paris..

You want things to stick in Washington, you need to get legislative approval. Phony father's very smart to have three equal branches of government. Currently, Joe Biden thinks he's king and can do whatever he wants. There's more the moderate uniter president Biden has done. He's reoriented the executive branch around this. This woke notion of equity. And you haven't had a very good piece earlier this week in the morning briefing about equity first is equality. Other executive order pushed immigration, non enforcement Us is open again, baby. He's also siding with unions against kids on school re openings. This did get a lot of press. Would've Biden's many executive orders was ending the Keystone XL pipeline, which with the stroke of a pen. Cost over 10,000 jobs, including here in Wisconsin, Michael's core precision pipeline they were building the pipeline anymore. Billions. Not millions. Billions with a B off dollars of economic committee gone. So that Iran, Johnson addressed that issue on Hannity earlier this week. Keystone XL Pipeline really hurts Wisconsin. We have one of the major contractors in Wisconsin, where we will lose probably thousands of jobs and hundreds of millions of dollars of economic activity in the state of Wisconsin because of what Joe Biden is done scratching every inch of the radical left from his party. You know that this is this is a travesty What is happening? And let's face it, Shawn. Actions speak louder than words. Talk is cheap. And for all the words of healing and you unifying this country, Joe Biden is doing the exact opposite. He is. He is taking a hard left.

"And Mark Belling late afternoon show. With regard to the news media right now. We're way beyond bias. It's now just out and out suppression of the news. I'm going to share with you one story. It's so unbelievable this thing is it appearing in the media. It's one thing. Well, you can't throw this vote fraud, so they don't put that stuff in. We have right now, a situation in which several 1000 Wisconsin jobs are lost. And one of the industry leader says the loss for the state is three. Million dollars. Normally the local business. In fact, I went on the website of the Business Journal. Some companies closing its doors. I think it's the local operation of writer going to cost of 80 jobs. That's a big story. The business journal. Not to be confused with the gentle sound of the business Journal Walkie Business Journal has yet to report On the number of layoffs of employees of Michael's and precision pipeline because of cancelation of Keystone XL. They haven't reported it at all. Him Michael's the CEO of Michael's Corporation of Brownsville and Milwaukee. Says his company's going to lose about 2000 Wisconsin jobs and more elsewhere. Because of the loss of the contract, which was in the tens of millions. There's another company in Wisconsin that also had a Keystone contract Precision pipeline. Michael's estimates that their losses they're going to be similar. Michaels was a well known and prominent Wisconsin business leader believes But the number of jobs lost that Wisconsin will be between 10 and 20,000. And the total dollar impact will be $3 billion. How is that not newsworthy? Keystone XL was a goldmine for Wisconsin because Our state is one of the global leaders in pipeline type construction. We have several major companies led by Michael's that are involved in this work. This is a crushing blow that's going to lead them to lay off thousands at his You're Michael's points out. There's all the other companies in Wisconsin that service and provide equipment and materials for Michael's, that thou will not be getting paid. It will not get their stuff being bought because the pipeline is being scrapped. Do not cover a story. On the devastating impact Wisconsin businesses and the number of Wisconsin jobs lost solely because it's a Democratic official who made the decision to kill off the project. That is suppression of news. I emailed Mark Cast the editor, The Business Journal yesterday. Why is this story not appear to the business journal Online anywhere? No response. Email them again today. No response. I wonder how many people even know But the loss of Keystone XL is going to be creating perhaps the biggest single job loss that we've seen in Wisconsin since The impact of covert 19. As for J s online, the only reporting they've done on this is buried within a larger story on Keystone. Is that even a headline about the job losses for Michael's of precision about Claire anywhere in there? It's bad enough. The conservative voices. They're surprised. It's bad enough that when a conservative says something it's always called a lie, you know, have new stories. Out in out actual news. That they simply won't report. Not even news. That necessarily has a bias in this case, just news that might lead somebody to a conclusion that Joe Biden did something that isn't good for our state. When you think of it. It's actually somewhat extraordinary that it hasn't been reported yet. Now I'm not saying reported anywhere. Been reported, and some radio stations has been Stevie Coverage. The business Times has covered it. But not the publication dedicated to covering business in Milwaukee. Look in that story not be covered. I want to share with you. Something else have been contacted by listeners that some of the parents up in key Waske and want to take action against the teacher, and I'm not going to name the teacher here because I haven't been able to independently investigate the allegations, But they say that this teacher routinely in class Comes the liberal agenda to the kids in any time. Any of the kids disagree. He calls the kids in his class racist. The guy subject that he teaches has nothing to do with social studies or anything of that nature. They say they're going to the school board in the school board administration because they want something done about it. They don't believe their Children should be called racist in class. I contacted the district administrator and key, Waske. Um Guy names Mazel and he has not responded to my questions. About the situation, the parent who contacted me said. They're hoping that at least if they publicize this story, it might make some of these teachers that are acting so unprofessional and so bullying and goon like in their classroom. In which there bawling our kids for their political views.

"In from Mandy, Man, you'll be back on Friday, looking little gonna be coming in tomorrow on Thursday. Right. So Joe Biden in this raft of executive orders that he signed virtually minutes after taking over the presidency after the inauguration. 17 and all two of them. To take them one at a time. One was to stop construction of the border wall. This is in league with the Democrats notion, especially the radical Progressives of Open borders order. Security hasn't been mentioned at all. By Joe Biden. Given his inaugural address and anything, he said after that, because it's not only a low priority. It's something they don't really want Border security, So it's already encouraging another caravan from Honduras to head this way. Now it might be unconscious. Tutu Schimmel. This remains to be seen. But funds were specifically appropriated an authorized by Congress for that water border wall. And some of that money hasn't been spent yet, and it has to be spent on the border wall. The commitment was made. The Democrats will argue that this is discretionary and they can kill it if they want that will probably wind up in in court. The other thing, Joe Biden is done. Is called for at least the temporary and in his mind and the radical left view. Hopefully a permanent And to the construction of that Keystone XL pipeline coming from Alberta all the way down to the Gulf Coast. Ah! A lot of money has already been spent on that a lot of sun costs are involved. An awful lot of jobs are associated with finishing that. And I should note that the United States has pipelines all over the place there. Thousands of miles of pipelines in this in this country, This is one additional one. And it's one that contributes to the energy independence of both the United States on this this region, including including Canada, eh? So we'll see where that goes to now, Trump did reallocate or shift funds appropriated for the Department of Defense. Hey, regarded. This is an emergency, and that's where some of the money came from. But some others of those dollars that have been appropriated, were specifically designed and committed to finishing the border wall. Let's dwell, however, on the Keystone XL pipeline, which is why Ben Lieberman is joining us. He's a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Hey, favors completion of the Keystone XL pipeline, as do I, and we'll get Ben's Take on this, Ben. Thanks for joining us this afternoon. Thank you so much for having me. I'm a big fan of the competitive Enterprise Institute. You guys do wonderful stuff. What's the institute's position and yours by association on this? Well, we're free market think tanks. So any project that is paid for entirely by the private sector is to be encouraged with rare exceptions, And that's certainly true of energy projects that bring affordable and reliable 830,000 barrels per day of Canadian oil into the U. S. There's no reason to oppose this project it Zawinul win situation That's that's often used great cliche. But in this case, it's true. You know the job building the pipeline, And then there's the more affordable energy once the pipeline is built, which has, uh additional benefits across the economy, for jobs and for consumers. Are their contractual arrangements that are already in place between the United States are companies here in Canada and their companies there that would require completion of this project. Oh, yeah. And I would suspect that there'll be a lot of losses become over this rejection of the the pipeline. Not to mention, uh, starting out Biden administration with some bad blood between the U. S on our ally to the North. Of course, Trudeau, the younger who's now the prime minister of Canada, is certainly left leaning to be kind. And in that regard, he may hey may agree. With the motivation of killing this, which comes from the radical environmentalists, But at the same time he's trying to curry favor with the private sector elements of this that are involved in the construction. He and Biden apparently talked the other day. Any idea what they talked about I don't know what they talked about, but you go with that pretty solid in favor of the Keystone XL pipeline. So give him credit for for that, And you know it's a project that would that would devastate both countries and we'll see what goes from here in terms of legality. Of stopping the pipeline now to play out in the courts in the months ahead. The notion that this would mitigate climate change, of course, is preposterous, because if that pipeline isn't completed down to our Gulf Coast That oil will still come out of the ground and still be shipped by Canada to other places, including not via pipelines, but on oil tankers that create a more realistic and greater risk of environmental damage. Yeah, and matter of fact, the Obama administration did an extensive analysis of the Keystone XL pipeline and concluded that the environmentally superior option is to build it. When that by not building it that oil will get to market through other means, including trains, which required energy to move the oil and therefore more greenhouse gas emissions and more susceptible to tax it, And so the environmental threat is greater from the alternatives. To the Keystone XL pipeline that oil is going to make it to market anyway. The Canadian government is committed to, uh, making use of it of its oil sands in Alberta and telling off Keystone is actually not only bad for the economy, but it's also bad environment. Now the semi religious devotion to radical environmentalism, of course, is the motivating force for this. People on that side of the issue have been able to recruit Indians to claim that this would be violating their ceremonial ceremonial lug burial sites and Other people to come up with environmental concerns that don't strike me as all that legitimate giving the interlacing of pipelines we've already had in this country that do so very successfully. Is his pump Is Biden willing Tol incur the wrath of radical environmentalists and and back off on this No, no, he's doing their bidding. In fact, quite a few of them now have jobs in Washington, D C and they're already hard at work as we as we've seen, and it's it's worth noting you mentioned there are some opponents do the pipeline. But if you really look at the people who live in the states And the congressional districts and the counties and cities where the pipeline passes. State is overwhelming support for the project, For example, the three states that the northern leg of the Keystone XL pipeline, which is the one issue here, the free state they go through. It's going through is Montana, South Dakota. And in the last six U. S. Senators, all six of whom support the Keystone XL pipeline. So it zippity clear where the people who live In the vicinity. The pipeline are yes. Environmental groups can always find some activist oppose the pipeline. But for the most part, people want this pipeline. They understand the benefits that includes tax revenues to the local governments that the pipeline goes through the six senators. You did you say Earth, they all Republicans. I'll. A tester of Montana Democrats protest, he said. The right things about Keystone XL, which gives you a sense of just how strongly favor the public opinion and in Montana is, even though this is a state that the pipeline goes through. Is there any chance that we can get some Democrats in the Senate to go along with Republicans on this and override Biden or wouldn't matter because the House is more strongly in Democrat hands? I don't really see any realistic possibility of revising the project to, uh to legislation..

Although I guess I'm not sure if we ever actually left but they were going to move to to leave was Was going to take place, and now it it apparently will not take place. The Paris accords always struck me as a great way to stick it to the United States, whereas the standards imposed on so called third world economies like China and India are much less stringent. And so, basically, we're telling those countries pollute all you want. Ah, but But we can't because we're pure of heart or something like that. Would you know, Jim, You're absolutely right. I mean, the point of the Paris Find the cord is to cripple the U. S. Economy to benefit the Europeans and China. Um, yeah, but I think you know, first have to start with the Paris accord. Is an illegal effort. Tonto avoid Senate ratification of the treaty. President Obama tried to have the well he execute the peasant Paris accord as An executive agreement, you know, just administration policy. And people have. The reason for that was because the Senate would never have ratified the Paris accord is a treaty because it is this horribly lopsided agreement, which only hurts the U. S and doesn't compel anybody. To cut their emissions. You know, Obama knew that the environmentalists would try to have the Paris agreement in force here and you might as well how could he do that? Because it's just an executive agreement doesn't have the force of law. I would just ask people to think back to Dhaka. Me doctor was an executive action by Obama. Um we'll go back to the how about the Iran nuclear deal, which never became a treaty, and John Kerry, the secretary of state at the time in congressional testimony, admitted He came out and said, Well, we couldn't submit. It is a treaty because it wouldn't get past. Yeah, like that's a reason for subverting the Constitution. There's a reason that's in the Constitution. No, you're right. But here's the significance of you know, like Daka Daka was just an executive action. But when President Trump reversed, you know there was litigation and went up to the Supreme Court. And when the Supreme Court say, Well, you know President Trump Trump Administration. You didn't dot your I's and cross your teas. He did not revoke it.

"Know what? The net CEO to benefit of blocking the Keystone XL pipeline, according to multiple full State Department reviews. This is an international deal, State Department got to review it, including under the Obama administration. The Nets. CEO to change is either negligible to zero or negative, meaning that this this oil is still going to come out of the ground. It's just going to be taken in tankers and trucks. Market instead of with a pipeline, which is far more efficient and far more cost effective, and also less like you 30 leakage and spills which affect the environment. The Keystone XL pipeline blockage is worse for everyone in every way. It is worse for the environment. It is worse for business. It is worse for you because of what it means for jobs for the economy and for energy costs. Democrats are blocking it anyway. Why? Because they can, because the enviro wack owes have convinced themselves that this is a battle they have to win. They have to show that they have the power even when all science and reason Are against them, even when there is no data to support their point of view. They have to find. A situation like this, where they can rally together. And get the government to shut down something because they don't like it. Oil is icky Fossil fuel bad. Shut it down. It's childish. It's destructive. It's stupid, and it's the first thing that bind US day one in office signs an executive order on this to stop the Keystone XL pipeline. There's no there's no good faith argument about why they shut this thing down compared to the alternatives. If it's really about the environment, unless you're going to say Oh, it's because there would definitely be some kind of an oil disaster. They don't know that and pipelines there far. Less likely to have spills and disasters and other forms of transport. Yeah. How many horrible oil pipeline disasters. Have you heard of you heard of tanker disasters? Transit point disasters when it involves vehicles. But how many pipeline disasters have you heard about the United States recently? Yeah, exactly. What This was the left flexing the environmentalist left and there are religious group. You have to understand that. The climate change activists, the anti pipeline activists. This is a religious group of people who think they're too smart for religion. And so for them. It's just all about the victory. It's all about. Enforcing their will on the rest of the American people and establishing that they have the power to do that. Even if it just means that the outcomes are negative for everyone involved, which they are. This somehow, just like the BLM movement, which I said to you last summer. Makes everything worse for everyone. There is no improvement makes nothing better. Four people doesn't make things better for minorities doesn't make things better for the police doesn't make things better for just Americans. Blocking the Keystone XL pipeline is the same thing for the left, but it shows you the mentality. This is just going to make energy costs higher. This is going to cost lots of jobs. And it won't even even if you believe that CEO to is going to melt the planet overtime or whatever. If you're climate change, alarmist alarmist. This does not stop.

Romney voted to convict Trump at his first impeachment trial and sided former president's efforts to overturn George's election results as well as his call for a march on the capital immediately preceding the riot. There's backlash this morning from the highest level of the Canadian government over President Biden's executive order to halt the Keystone XL pipeline. It would've shipped oil from Canada to the United States. He's eliminated now more than 10,000 union jobs with that order, and it is angered one of America's closest allies. Here's what Jason Kenney, the premier of Alberta, Canada, told Fox News. We have the third largest well reserves in the world. We ship about up nearly $100 billion worth of energy to the U S. Every year, Keystone XL would have been significant. Safe, modern increase in that shipment on But it is very It's very frustrating that one of the first act of the new president was, I think to disrespect America's closest friend and ally Canada. Bond to kill good pain union jobs on both sides of the border and ultimately to make the United States more dependent on foreign oil imports from OPEC Dictatorships. We don't understand it. Then, At the very least, we believe that those who've invested in this project trusting in the regulatory process in the U. S should be compensated by the U. S administration. Now President Biden has come out and said the reason that he issued that particular order was because he made a campaign promise to environmental groups right. Meanwhile, The Montana's governor is calling on president bind to rethink this saying, This is really a lifeline for us and laid off. Keystone workers say it's going to hurt a lot of people. And Kenny went on to explain that pipelines, arm or fuel efficient way of transporting oil. They don't get it from Canada. They've got to get it from places ultimately, like Venezuela on I don't see how that's in the interests of the United States. So our plead to the Biden administration is Please take a half step back here. Get it. Conversation with your closest friend and ally Canada about how we can ensure a future for safe energy exports, continental energy, independence and security between Canada and the U. S. While also taking very seriously climate policy and environmental policy. You know, President Obama's State Department concluded after rigorous study that Keystone XL would actually reduce carbon emissions because the alternative will be shipping it by rail, which is higher Mitt. And less safe. It it it causes more pollution. If you transport oil by truck and by rail and by ship. It's cheaper. If you go by pipeline. It's safer. There are fewer emissions. Virtually every oil industry expert will tell you that pipelines are the safest way and the cleanest way to ship oil. Right, so the people who are for it Hey, look, we you know, with one signature 11,000 jobs are gone. And It's more expensive. It's more polluting, and it's more dangerous to do it. Otherwise those air for the cancelation say, Look, this was going to be environmentally devastating. So we're glad that it's not going forward. Indigenous leaders are now demanding the same or another Dakota access pipeline.

These jobs. You know, we want them replace with good union jobs. It's easy for him to say he just got a new job. Yeah, it is remarkable to see the lack of empathy that Joe Biden and people to judge have showed for the thousands of people who have lost their jobs overnight. Right? There are married couples right now, who are figuring out how to move forward. They have lost their sole source of employment, and they're in these red states states like Nebraska and the Dakotas. Except Joe Biden, Quite frankly, doesn't care about and with on Lee visit if he needed their electoral votes, Mayor Pete said the priority is fulfilling the president's promise on climate change. There is a plan for the Guatemalan immigrants who were crossing the border. There was a plan for everybody. But there is no plan for these thousands of American energy workers who are losing their job. They are just told to go pound sand. And that is absolutely immoral that this president is doing that to these people. And by the way, the estimates are, you know thousands of temporary jobs, additional jobs directly in indirect jobs associated with it about $2 billion of wages we're talking about Stephen Moore. I even noticed the Canadians was a Bloomberg piece out today that the leader of Canada's oil Heartland, calling this decision to cancel Keystone XL on insult. They're urging the Prime Minister Trudeau to consider retaliation in this case and anyway there, Premier Jason Kennedy said in a press conference. It's an insult. And said Trudeau. She could demand the U. S administration sit down and discuss the project in the context of environmental climate security policy, and if that fails, Canada should be willing to impose meaningful punitive measures against his biggest trading partner. Well, we could see they're reasserting their muscle against America. Well, you know, Sean was struck by that quote from the by administration, saying What we want is good. Palin paying union jobs. That's exactly what these are. You know, I've spent a lot of time in the oil patch in United States in the Dakotas and in Texas and even up in Canada, and these are not $15 an hour job. These are $15 our jobs. These are jobs that pay. You know, for the truckers, The pipe fitters, the construction workers. They're hard hat jobs that pay many times over $100,000 a year. So these are exactly the kind of uh you know, good paying union jobs it that Biden promised that he would create rather than take away by the way. Shame on you know some of these unions. If you use actually endorsed by, Did you know that Trump on me? Is that how crazy is that? I mean, I mean, the cavalier. Basically was it was Buddha Judge and Biden Toe Workers on Keystone XL Drop dead. I mean, there's just don't care. And when you think about our relationship with Canada, they pretty much told Canada's shove it and that's going to impact their economy and but he's giving into the environmental extremists. As we all said he would. What is the impact of the climate accords? The Paris climate accord, which actually says that China is a developing nation, they don't put the same restrictions on China. The biggest polluter. Well, it is remarkable that China was exempt from this, Andre. What United States has done in this administration is surpassed the goals of the climate accords without being in it under the Trump administration. So now that we are joining it for no apparent reason we're also on the hook now for billions of dollars. That will go to a human climate slush fund. Who was spending this money? What are their projects? What oversight is there? Why trust the U N with billions of taxpayer American dollars. So again, it's his globalist kobol that punishes America will impose false sanctions that false mandates on America When we've achieved the spirit of the accords, which is lower our missions. We did that under President Trump, and that was never celebrated by the environment. The left, you know, I can't go out like Steve is gonna make another point. You know, you talk about Canada. Being, you know, loser here. Clearly, they are because Canada and the United States account and United States have more on gas and coal than just about any other, You know region of the world. We have more than you know, Saudi Arabia. We have more of this than than Russia and another's other countries, but the big winner here from both the United States Entering the reentering the worst treaty in the history, the United States of Paris climate Accord and in this continuing the DEA's up infrastructure projects like the pipelines is Right now. I mentioned this on your show. I think last month right now is we're sitting here There was a $12 billion pipeline that's being built from from Siberia and and Russia to China. And so I mean, what's wrong with this picture? Sean, the Russian China Two biggest enemies are building a pipeline so they can get all of the energy that China needs at low prices. And we can't build pipelines here in the United States. Meanwhile, while they're doing pipelines, the other thing people have to realize is China right now is building we don't know exactly, but somewhere in the neighborhood, 50 to 200 new coal plants. Every time we shut down a coal plant, the United States China built 10 of them. How is that reducing climate change? I mean, that's such a great point. And by the way, having our carbon emissions levels gone down in recent years, wait up. Wait up, Wait up absolutely countries that are in the better in the you know that are in the Paris climate and none of them that way. Of the 30 major countries. They've been in that climate change of agreement. 28 of them haven't reached there turned it. Yeah, And you're going to say Daniel do remarkable thing about what President Trump achieved and got very little credit for on the global community or especially in environmental community is lowering our missions while also making America the world's largest oil and gas producer. We did not discover any new oil field. We did not invent any new any new technology. What President Trump didn't he allowed the free markets to do what it does best. That means that potential was always in America. For every single president going back in history. All that potential of America was there, and they wouldn't let it come to the market. President Trump unleashed the power of the free market, and it does what it always does, which is produced more for less while improving the status of the average person. I just I found the statement of Buddha Judge in particular this hearing with Ted Cruz. I mean it literally a mike. Oh, my gosh. You really don't care. I mean, he p put he put Look if you're working, and we know that there how many? How many millions of people that have been displaced in terms of jobs as a result of, you know, rigid government shutdowns, especially in places like New York and California and elsewhere. A zoo result of covert 19. Okay, Now we're gonna have illegal immigrants coming in, and they're gonna They're going to be made legal and they'll be the their path to legalization. No more building the border wall, putting handcuffs on ice. They can't even do their job anymore and enforce the laws of the land. As per Biden s. So we're gonna have more competition for the jobs that do become available as hopefully one day we get to the point where the country opens up completely. Maybe late spring and early summer, Steve Moore..

They claimed 57% of Union households voted for a rough Joe Biden. I think that's kind of high. I know that. I know this is one union household that I'm in. That didn't vote for Joe Biden. Even though I'm not in a union. I think you get the I think you get to be called the union member even after you're not in it. But labor labor unions criticized Biden action against the Keystone XL pipeline. I think this is a wire story, but the ironic thing here is But these unions that are now issuing these press releases. They backed Joe Biden. Didn't they understand what was gonna happen? I mean, I understood that you know, Trump told people this was gonna happen at the rallies, he said they now they say they're against frak E. Therefore fracking go back to their press releases. They say they're They're not going to shut down call go back to what they said a couple of years ago. And the same thing applied to the Keystone XL Pipeline. Julia Louis Dreyfus from the Seinfeld show she she's She's from a super super rich family. She may even be a billionaire. She's against the Keystone XL pipeline. Deeply disappointed. Said the head of the North American Building Trades Union. Would you care to guess who they endorsed for president in October? Joe Biden Will kill thousands of good paying hashtag union jobs tweeted the Laborers International Union of North America. You know who's in the Laborers International unit union who actually re in one of the locals, the $6 Million Man from Boston. Mayor Marty Watch who's now gonna be going into the Biden administration, and his own union says will kill thousands of good paying union jobs. This is from the United Association of Union, plumbers and Pipefitters. Sadly, the Biden administration has now put thousands of union workers out of work. They don't care. I don't care. It was the way it was gonna be set up. It would bring in the the the oil from Alberta 35 million gallons of crude oil a day. It would it was the pipeline that would go all the way from Alberta and then cut across Montana, then come down through the Dakotas and then go all the way to the gulf. And, uh and it would be refined in the Gulf and some would be used in the United States and the rest of it would be shipped overseas. It would be exported because we're now the nation's largest temporarily, anyway. We're than where the world's largest producer of energy It was. It was a boon. Then Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton initially blessed the pipeline. But under pressure from environmental groups and liberal celebs such as Julia Louis Dreyfus, the Obama administration moved twice the block Keystone XL. Donald Trump, on his fourth day in office, signed an executive order allowing the project to go forward. So now it's been canceled. So it you know what the only comeback is and it again? This isn't gonna this is gonna make the environment cleaner. In the past. They were Transporting this oil to the refineries. Via rail. Tanker cars. And I remember that on at least one occasion seeing video of a of a tanker train full of this oil tipping over and causing all untold environmental damage. But these rail lines, some of them are owned by a well known Democrat. Mega donor Warren Buffett. So this is a real boon for Warren Buffett, Buffett and it's and it's gonna It's not gonna make it cleaner. It's gonna make it dirtier. But there's a group that's been long battling the the pipeline in the brass ska. Trans Canada and lots of Republican politicians really lied to the American people about job numbers. They? They went down to 10,000 jobs, and their numbers are really a 600 construction draught jobs that travel with the pipeline from state to state. And she called it a risky pie. Everything is risky to these people. It's risky. That's why Ah, That's why Karen keyword Congressman Karen Keating had to had to castigate the National Guardsmen because it was risky. Not to be wearing a mask. 844 542 42. So they announced that they're cutting their ending the permitting for the Keystone XL pipeline. They're gonna be court cases, obviously, but the energy company already announced job cuts. Senator Dan Sullivan, Republican Arkansas. Asked, Do you think? He asked this of Buddha judge who's the new transportation secretary? Do you think that decision is going to impact climate at all? To kill the Keystone Pipeline and killed thousands of jobs and Buddha? Judge replied on this Is that stop me If you've heard this one before. Ornette. More good paying union jobs will be created in the context of the climate and infrastructure work. Yeah, right. That we have had that we have before us, then have been impacted by other decisions. This guy knows nothing about energy. Nothing about transportation. Other than that, he he proposed to his husband in a in O'Hare Airport in Chicago. That's what he said.

Bob Matarese will join us when you talk about how the pandemic has impacted his business and how it's been made worse with the heightened security around inauguration and what you can do to help a Merry Walter and inheritance colonies. Good morning. Good morning to you, President Joe Biden announcing all sorts of things yesterday on his first day. On the job. One of those was scuttling the Keystone XL pipeline. This is the second attempt by the Obama Biden administration to destroy this thing. Donald Trump had tried to get it going during his time in office. Let's talk about the impact of this. Daniel Turner is the founder and executive director of power the future and has some reactions to this this morning, Daniel Good morning. Good morning. Thanks for having me on whose interest do it. Does it serve to get rid of the Keystone XL pipeline? Definitely not the American people. I know Biden is beholden to the environmental left who begrudgingly supported him right during the campaign. Bernie Sanders was their champion Elizabeth Warren. Other other primary candidates really carried the weight of the environmental left, but they didn't prevail. And so Biden had to win them over and we saw a dramatic shift. In his energy and environmental policies and canceling Keystone XL is not the stuff of a moderate. He told us. He was a moderate moderate, Don't cancel on their first day in office. The jobs of literally thousands of Americans in rural parts of the country. But they're telling us that this is going to create jobs for Americans. So how can they be canceling jobs but creating jobs at the same time? Yes, I Obama promised us millions and millions upon a green jobs and it's one of those scenarios of the bird in the hand, right if if you are working on the Keystone pipeline or in any of these industries, oil, gas, coal fracking, etcetera. Are you willing to told? Well, we'll cancel your job. But we promise you this is your government promising you. We promise you a better green job tomorrow. I think I'm gonna keep the job I have and Keystone is one of those jobs. It's been a nonsensical political football for almost a decade now and just to put things in a quick perspective, we have enough oil and gas pipelines in America to go to the moon and back. 10 Times We have almost three million miles of oil and gas pipelines crisscrossing this country. This is not a major project. It is not a disproportionately large project. It is a simple infrastructure projects simple but good and important. But these are the type of blue collar union job still promise. Joe Biden promised us on the campaign trail. Well, the surface level environmental argument seems to be that well. If there's a break somewhere in the pipeline, it could be an environmental disaster of the oil gets out. But my understanding is this oil still needs to be transported one way or the other and now lacking a pipeline, Don't we create more opportunities for spills and pollution by not actually using a streamlined pipeline to transport this oil across the country? Exactly. We are going from a green and safe method, which is a pipeline. It is by far the safest. It is by far the greenest that doesn't have emissions to, as you said, finding another means of transportation. That's either going to be the trucking industry or the railroad industry. And I have no problem with those industries. But if emissions are your concern Well, these things are are going to clearly have emissions and there are involved. There are other risks. Their highway risks etcetera, Thea other alternative Canada is rather than put these on a truck or a train and send them to Texas. They could put them on their own pipeline and send them west to the West Coast and sell their oil elsewhere. And and now America is left out of the market of a reliable, inexpensive, basically domestic North American product. And Canada is going to sell it to probably China. You know, the president would big deal was made out of a tree, least on the right acknowledge the fact that President Trump made his energy independent, and that's a big deal because we're not beholden to these foreign countries for our energy to power our homes and keep us warm, and that's a good thing. So what does this do to that energy independence? If anything, These are going to be the myriad steps that will chip away little by little and energy independence of big When you couple together decisions like this decisions to prohibit oil and gas drilling on federal land. That's what AB Holland, the nominee for Interior secretary is promising when you and all of these things, plus the regulation plus the environmental red tape, what they're going to do is make it very hard to produce oil and gas here in America, and that is good for other oil and gas producing countries, and they are Venezuela, Russia, the Saudis, the entire OPEC cartel is going to love this and so The fact that anything about the last four years as you just said marry, we became energy independent. We didn't discover new oil patch We didn't invent the new technology always did, And it's huge. All we did. Was allowed the free market to do what it does best in unshackled it, and we responsibly and ethically produced more oil and gas and ever before, while lowering emissions every year upon year for the last four year that's fascinating. Yeah. Daniel, help me understand something, You know one of the things that I found that that is a feature of the so called Green movement. The environmental movement is typically it's really just a front for some other corporate interest. So what they'll do is they'll listen. Monopoly like the idea of using carbon credits, for instance, is just really to monopolize who gets to control energy in the country and keep new entrance from joining the market. I mean, these are these are basically rackets that are sold to us as ways to protect the environment. So when it comes to Keystone XL, who are the corporate interests in the United States who benefit from the destruction of the Keystone XL pipeline? Well, one of the largest contributors to remember the Dakota access pipeline, another pipeline for a series of protests that happened in the Obama years. One of the biggest donors of those also happens to be one of the richest people in the country who owns one of the largest railroad and trucking magnets in the country. And so you have to wonder. Are you protesting the pipeline Because you care about the earth..

"As I understand it. He's already said that he'll sign 17 executive orders his very first day. Today he will sign 17 executive orders and one of the things I think, most notably that he plans to do is to cancel the Keystone XL pipeline. View that as a real gift, not to the American people, it's going to hurt the American people. It's going to hurt jobs. It's gonna hurt taxes. It's going to hurt America's energy, independence and energy abundance, but it's a gift to Russia. It's a gift, perhaps to China as well. I thought we talked to Daniel Turner, who's president of power, the future about exactly what this means that they would cancel the Keystone XL pipeline. Daniel welcome back to the program. Laura's always great to be on with you. Thanks so much. So would you mind outlining for my audience who Who does this do well for and let's start with the American people. Is there any real benefit to canceling the Keystone XL pipeline to have efficient movement of fossil fuels across this country? The country is already got a Web work of pipelines all over the country. If you don't believe me, Google You know us oil pipelines and and look at the national map. It looks like the capital every system in your hand, you know, writ large. So So does this do any good for the American people? No, not at all. I'm just on your point about the pipelines. We have enough oil and gas pipelines right now Crisscrossing America to go to the moon and back 10 Times were posted three million miles of pipeline. There's one pipeline, which is 1200. Miles is really insignificant. Considering our infrastructure. Joe Biden just was inaugurated thing. He wanted to be president for all Americans. Well, what about the 3000 who just lost their job Now? I'm sure they're going to take it to the courts. I'm sure they're gonna fight. But as of right now those 3000 Americans in rural you could even say Red states. Roll out of work on Dis does nothing for important climate change of this is your cause. Because what's cleaner than a pipeline? Well, they will find alternative ways to bring this oil support. So it's either the railroad industry or the trucking industry. No, I have nothing against them. But aren't pipelines greener and safer than both of those things, so it has no environmental benefit, And it certainly has no economic benefit. Now, Daniel, I know that somebody out there who hasn't thought this one through, but I want to help them out with this. They're going to say Well, if we already have enough pipeline to go to the moon and back, why do we need this one to the companies that are building this are not doing it for fun. They're not doing it out of charity. They're doing it because there is a demand for this pipeline as well, right? Absolutely. And this will bring oil from Canada from Alberta to the Texas area. Where will be refined and then either since throughout the country or put on ships and sent to our allies across the world. If they're not going to get this refined product from America and candidates a joint effort then they're going to get it from somewhere else and where they're going to get it from his right off the bat Russia One of the OPEC nations. And so this idea that will know they will stop using oil is nonsense. They're gonna find it from someone else. And then that country is going to get Tax benefits. That job's benefits the revenue, etcetera. So again, there's no economic benefits of this at all. We're just for going a market share. And we're losing jobs and money in the process. Now, Daniel, you're the expert in this. I'm not. But I think there's another wrinkle to this that people may not realize I've emphasized to people how much Joe Biden is. President is now owned lock, stock and barrel by Communist China. And if they think of the United States, I mean, even if you don't know a lot of geography, you know where Canada is. You also know where China is. And if you don't have this pipeline that brings oil from Alberta Down to the Gulf Coast to the refineries and also to the ships. You might say Well, that as you and I suggested, they'll put it on trains. They'll put it on trucks. But all of this is an economic decision because putting it on those other modes of transport costs more money than putting it through a pipeline. There are pipelines that could take this oil from Alberta to the west Coast of Canada. And then be put on ships that are headed to the east. Correct. Absolutely, and China's biggest vulnerability is that it really does not have any domestic oil. China imports over 10 Million barrels a day now strategically, the world could use this to their advantage and maybe liberate some weaker slaves from China, right. We could do a lot of things with this the way the OPEC nations held America under its thumb during the Carter years, right? China is now the logical place for this market. If I'm the prime minister of Canada, and I see Canada first By the way, I'll never understand why the phrase America first was so offensive. My job is the prime minister of Canada is to help my people, So I am going to find the market from my oil. If the United States doesn't want it, I will go elsewhere, whether it's China or any other country. Again. America is just sacrificing this relationship with Canada this bond with them. You know, this is a real some of the nose to our northern neighbors complied with all the rules. They followed all the procedures, they got the necessary approvals. And they started building this. So Joe Biden's first step. Besides, the snub to Israel is now a really big snot to Canada. Well, and by the way, you know, all I was saying was, if they can't ship it easily to the south. They may ship it more easily to the West and then sell it to China. That's a benefit to China..
