Biden admin acknowledges it axed 59,000 jobs: When Joe Biden killed the Keystone XL Pipeline as one of his first acts upon taking office, Republicans loudly objected that doing so would damage the American economy and cost thousands of jobs, even as the U.S. was struggling to overcome a global pandemic. Biden, bowing to the radical environmentalist Left, eliminated the pipeline with the stroke of a pen, while ridiculously asserting that any jobs lost would only be temporary and that the green energy sector would quickly make up the difference. Now, two years later, Biden's Department of Energy is admitting that those jobs lost ended up being more significant and the economic cost higher than Biden had so rosily asserted at the time. The DOE found that killing Keystone XL resulted in 59,000 lost jobs and cost the U.S. economy $9.6 billion in growth. "To make matters worse," observed Senator Jim Risch (R-ID), "his decision moved the U.S. further away from energy independence and lower gas prices at a time when inflation and gas prices are drastically impacting Americans' pocketbooks." Americans are still experiencing the negative consequences of Biden's killing of Keystone, which made Russia's invasion of Ukraine that much more costly for the U.S. With Donald Trump, the country finally enjoyed energy independence, but Biden foolishly decided to reverse course on that stunning success.

Biden's statement on classified docs: After initially staying mum regarding the revelation that classified documents from his time serving as vice president were discovered at his Washington think tank, Joe Biden on Tuesday finally addressed the scandal. Biden said that he was "surprised" while at the same time asserting that he takes "classified documents or classified information seriously." He then acknowledged that classified documents had indeed been discovered, "but I don't know what's in the documents." And he doesn't want to know. "My lawyers have not suggested I ask what documents they were," he said. "I've turned over the boxes ... [and] we're cooperating fully." In other words, I didn't know I had classified documents, and we're giving them back, so it's no big deal. Of course, that was not the message Biden expressed when he lambasted Donald Trump as being "totally irresponsible" after classified documents were found at his Mar-a-Lago estate. With Trump under a DOJ investigation over his having held classified documents, House Republicans announced on Tuesday that they're launching a probe into Biden's classified document scandal.
