William Katz:  Urgent Agenda







THE REAL AMERICA SPEAKS – OVERNIGHT – and what it is saying will not produce a victory party in the White House.   From Fox:

PHILIP, S.D. – President Biden has been "absolutely worthless" and "has done nothing for us," residents of a small South Dakota town say as their community continues to deal with the fallout from the Keystone XL Pipeline cancelation.

"He does not care," Paulette, a resident of Philip, told Fox News. "If he did care, Keystone would be going."

Biden revoked the Keystone XL Pipeline's building permit his first day in office over concerns about its potential impact on the climate.

"Biden and his administration ran on Build Back Better, and, that is, from where I'm standing, a load of crap," West Central Electric Cooperative CEO Jeff Birkeland told Fox News. "I think his new slogan should be ‘butchering booming business.'"

Birkeland said the Keystone XL Pipleine was a "once-in-a-lifetime opportunity" for Philip, a town with a population of 779. The project would have brought unprecedented growth to their otherwise stagnant community, he told Fox News.

West Central, which is located in Philip, was one of three electric co-ops in South Dakota working on substations for the Keystone pipeline.

Birkeland's co-op had invested $9 million into the project when Biden halted it after one day in office, the energy CEO told Fox.

"He's literally pulled the rug out from under us and killed our economy," Birkeland said.
Paulette told Fox News the effect of Biden's decision to cancel the pipeline "was huge. He got no love from this area."

"There was going to be a lot of money coming in here to help our schools, help our community," she continued. "It was going to be a good deal, and he trashed it."

Duane Adair, manager of the town’s only motel, the Motel West, said: "There's no common sense in making that decision to shut down pipelines – and then turn around and we have a problem with not having enough oil."

For three consecutive days this week, gas prices hit their all-time highest mark, with the national average reaching $4.35 per gallon Thursday, according to AAA.

Biden announced a ban on Russian oil and gas imports Tuesday in response Moscow's war on Ukraine. The president warned that Americans would see higher prices at the pump.

COMMENT: Americans are figuring it out. Biden destroyed our energy independence and almost wrecked the energy industry – because the far left in his party demanded it.  Now he's begging dictatorships around the world, from Russia through Iran to Venezuela, to pump more oil to the tottering little United States. What a performance.  It flashed weakness, and we got the invasion of Ukraine.  But the totalitarian left is pleased.

It will get worse.  From everything we hear, Field Marshal Biden and Grand Admiral Harris are giving Iran a huge victory in the nuclear talks. Looks like the Iranians will have tens of billions of dollars more to finance terrorism, and will likely have a nuclear weapon whenever they want it.

How would you like to be an American ally right now?  That may be the question of the decade.
