Back when President Trump was in office, he was given win after win. Even after leaving office, he’s still winning many lawsuits. When it comes to Joe Biden though, it’s quite the opposite.

Biden has been suffering loss after loss, and rightfully so. That’s what happens when you act lawlessly, and the law actually prevails.

After 13 states filed a lawsuit on the executive order, a federal court late Thursday night halted Joe Biden’s ban on federal gas and oil leasing.

Biden signed an executive order and set a freeze on new oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits on federal lands shortly after taking office in January 2021.

Several states, including ones Joe Biden (allegedly) won in 2020, as well as the Ute Indian tribe sued Joe Biden over the order.

According to the Mineral Leasing Act (MLA) and Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act, Joe Biden “lacked any authority” to enact the policy, according to US District Court for the Western District of Louisiana Judge Terry Doughty, a Trump appointee (OCSLA).

Fox Business reported,

A federal district court blocked the Biden administration’s moratorium on federal oil and gas leasing, a potentially fatal blow to the policy that has been tied up in a legal battle since early 2021.

U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana Judge Terry Doughty issued a permanent injunction blocking the leasing moratorium in a ruling late Thursday evening.

Doughty wrote that President Biden “lacked any authority” to implement the policy under the Mineral Leasing Act (MLA) and Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA) which regulate federal leasing on public lands and waters.

“The Court finds Section 208 of Executive Order 14008 is ultra vires, beyond the authority of the President of the United States, and in violation of the OCSLA and the MLA,” he wrote in the opinion. “Even the President cannot make significant changes to the OCSLA and/or the MLA that Congress did not delegate.”

Biden issued Executive Order 14008 — titled the “Executive Order on Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad” — on Jan. 27, 2021, days after taking office. The action ordered the Department of the Interior (DOI) to pause new oil and natural gas leases, a policy Biden pledged to pursue during his 2020 campaign, while it conducts a review of the federal leasing program.

“President Biden’s executive order to choke off energy development didn’t just increase prices and hurt American families — it was flatly illegal,” Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen said in a statement after Doughty issued his ruling Thursday. “This decision is a victory for the rule of law and the workers and the rural communities who depend on the energy industry.”

Just think, if Biden wouldn’t have initiated several of these policies that he did, we would be in a much better position as a country. Inflation would still be high, but it wouldn’t be as high.

  • Biden and his cronies know that any attacks on his policies will take a tremendous amount of time to wind through the court system— that being a major reason for them to break the law and ignore court rulings for so long. Throw in a favorable liberal judge (most often) and you have to go another rung up the ladder to get justice. Biden has violated the law and the Constitution so long and so many times that he should be found guilty of treason, impeached and imprisoned.

    • True biden has committed treason, but not for the reasons you think. The U.S. Constitution defines treason in a very specific way.
      Treason is providing aid and comfort to enemies of the Constitution. Biden is guilty of at least 2 counts of treason that I’m aware of.
      When he outed SEAL TEAM 6 as the unit that finally killed Bin Lauden while he was VP. The second act of treason was when he Re-armed the Talliban. The incidents you refer to make him a criminal guilty of multiple fellonies all of which are impeachable offenses.

      • Biden should get the DEATH SENTENCE for TREASON, AIDING & ABETTING THE ENEMY (THE TALIBAN). The First president (FAUX president) ever to AID & ABETT AN ENEMY OF AMERICA. this is PURE TREASON, NO IF’S AND BUTSABOUT IT BIDEN NEEDS THE DEATH SENTENCE…

  • ONLY ONE SIDE IS AFRAID OF AN OPEN INVESTIGATION Even the Democrats don’t believe Biden won anything! To quote CHUCK SCHUMER DEMOCRAT! ” IF DEMOCRATS HAD NOTHING TO HIDE! THEY WOULD DEMAND A FULL, FAIR, AND VERY PUBLIC INVESTIGATION!” The fact they are spending millions to stop any investigation even today! SCREAMS THEY ARE CHEATERS AND BIDEN WON NOTHING! As even today as president this retard can not draw a crowd of fly’s! As the people check more and more of the BIG CHEAT comes out! Now Colorado election clerk has caught the Dominion programmers changing the voter data red handed! You can see it! ( SHORT VERTION) watch (S)election code! Or the complete show of every change they made as it is an entire weekend long! This is the states own data ! Like 2000 MULES they said was debunked? THAT WAS A LIE! Used the States own video to show the people actually stuffing the ballot box! Now they know the where and why the boxes were stuffed. There are plenty of Democrats and Rino’s that need to be prosecuted! And corrupt judges that need to be terminated!

  • Are you people nuts? Trump did more damage to America and the cause of democracy in the world than any individual in history. Trump should be in jail.

  • I am pleased to hear that the Judge ruled against Biden who only cares about himself and his crooked family. They all have been on an outrageous witch hunt for way too many years now, trying to take down a man and his family that had finally done something, lots of things that impacted our entire country with nothing but good with focus and acts of love. Now this clown Biden and his crew took the past two years to completely reverse all the pluses provided and fought for by Donald Trump and his family. Go Donald win 2024. Peace

  • The Buffoon, AKA, His Royal Anus Dementia Joey from Scranton is getting his head finally handed to him. True Justice would be Joey relegated back to his Basement and Trump re-instated where he should be and Nasty Nancy being indicted for insider trading and her fortunes confiscated… Of course that would happen in a better world but since we are under a draconian regime dreamed up by Obamy and his cabal we as a Nation will suffer the results of the scam.

  • Biden should get the DEATH SENTENCE for TREASON, AIDING & ABETTING THE ENEMY (THE TALIBAN). The First president (FAUX president) ever to AID & ABETT AN ENEMY OF AMERICA. this is PURE TREASON, NO IF’S AND BUTSABOUT IT BIDEN NEEDS THE DEATH SENTENCE…
