Federal Judge Drops The Hammer On Biden’s Climate Agenda, Reverses Biden’s Ban On New Oil And Gas Leases

A federal judge blocked Biden’s oil and gas leases by a preliminary injunction, according to The Western Journal.

“While our fight is far from over, I am pleased the Court granted preliminary relief against the President’s unconscionable attack on American energy,” Landry stated on Twitter.

“You don’t want to be sitting there with a lot of stranded assets. You’re gonna wind up on the wrong side of this battle,” John Kerry warned.

“They ought to be figuring out how do we become not an oil and gas company, but how do we become an energy company.”

From The Western Journal:

A federal judge in Louisiana on Tuesday granted a preliminary injunction blocking President Joe Biden’s ban on new federal oil and gas leases.

Republican Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry and officials in 12 other states filed a lawsuit in March in an effort to resume ongoing lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska, according to NPR.

Injunctions remain a contentious topic, as they were used 19 times to stop actions by the Obama administration and 55 times against the Trump administration.

The debate centers around the fact that a single judge has the power to impact federal government policy as a whole.

U.S. District Judge Terry Doughty was appointed by former President Donald Trump in 2018, an example of the former president’s lasting influence in the American judicial system.

Trump frequently touted his appointment of hundreds of federal judges, as well as Supreme Court Justices Amy Coney Barrett, Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch.

Pausing federal oil and gas leases was a key part of Biden’s plan to transition to renewable energy without waiting for the industry to make changes on its own.
