President Autopen isn’t the only one who knows how to sign an executive order. Joe just declared war on the energy sector, and Texas is about to take that VERY personally.
Anyone thinking Texans are the kind of people who just roll over and accept whatever the government tries to shove down their throats has badly underestimated Texans.
Here’s what Gov Abbott had to say on social media…
What does that look like in practical terms?
Well, if Joe’s launched a war against the energy sector, Abbott is responding by mobilizing an army of lawyers to stand against him.
Abbott made the announcement Thursday saying the state was going to take steps to protect the oil and gas industry while also promising to veto any “new green deal” type of legislation, should it be passed, while simultaneously proposing legislation to prevent the banning of natural gas appliances.
“I’m in Midland to make clear that Texas is going to protect the oil and gas industry from any type of hostile attack launched from Washington D.C.,” Abbott said. “President Biden’s embrace of the green new deal is a job killer in Texas. It also takes a wrecking ball to the energy independence that Texas has been able to provide to the United States of America and Texas is not going to stand idly by and watch the Biden administration kill jobs in Midland, in Odessa or any other place across the entire region.”
Abbott then signed an executive order that directed every state agency to, “use all lawful powers and tools to challenge any federal action that threatens the continued strength and vitality of the energy industry. Each state agency should work to identify potential litigation, notice and comment opportunities and any other means of preventing federal overreach within the law.”
And when they do that, Abbott said, “that will arm Texas to be prepared to fight back.”
Abbott said he was also proposing legislation that would stop local cities and counties from acting to derail the oil and gas energy by banning natural gas appliances in new buildings. An action he said was recently taken in San Francisco. –NBCDFW
He went further still, promising that anyone within Texas pressing any Green New Deal type of policies would be met with a Governor’s veto.

Much of the Left loathes masculinity and they love to paint Jesus as a non-offensive bearded woman who endorses their agenda. This book blows that nonsense all to hell. From the stonking laptop of bestselling author, Doug Giles, comes a new book that focuses on Jesus’ overt masculine traits like no other books have heretofore. It’s informative, bold, hilarious, and scary. Giles has concluded, after many years of scouring the scripture that, If Masculinity Is ‘Toxic’, Call Jesus Radioactive.
