12 states sue Joe Biden over climate orders

President Joe Biden acted quickly to issue a slew of controversial executive orders soon after taking office, and he’s now being dragged into court by a coalition of 12 states over an executive order they claim will harm the nation through expanded federal power.

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt, who filed the lawsuit, stated, “Once again, an administration wants federal bureaucrats to do by burdensome regulation what it is unable to pass through Congress,” Schmidt said.

“This order would result in new regulations that would significantly burden Kansas agriculture, energy production and manufacturing. No president has authority to impose this massive job-killing cost on our economy by executive order.”

State attorneys general from Arkansas, Arizona, Indiana, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Utah also joined the action.

The lawsuit argues Executive Order 13990, called “Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis,” does not have the authority to issue binding social costs for greenhouse gases.

The lawsuit also claims the social costs show $269 billion for carbon dioxide, $990 billion for methane and $8.24 trillion for nitrous oxide. A total of approximately $9.5 trillion in additional costs would be added to the U.S. economy through this single executive order.

Kansas Attorney General Schmidt has been busy on other matters regarding Biden’s agenda:

Last month, Schmidt also wrote President Biden asking him to reconsider his administration’s decisions to unilaterally revoke the construction permit for the Keystone XL pipeline and to suspend Operation Talon, a federal program that finds and deports sex offenders who are illegally in the country.

Biden’s executive orders have led to many consequences, but states are not giving up without a fight. Schmidt and others are leading a coordinated response to roll back the president’s agenda.

With all that Chinese money on hand, Biden could pay for it all with pocket change.

It is high time the demonrats are controlled
And stoped before the country is ruined!
Biden is in the White House by their corrupt
Deeds to change the election results.
What good are the so called judges in our
Supreme Court if they refuse to hear cases
And proof of the fake election for the highest
Position in the country. They are more than disappointing, I find them endothelial totally!!

Biden probably never sees any of the letters and someone writes what he says. I don’t think he knows what he says. Just says the words. I don’t know what can be done. I thank all the voters who voted for him because it was obvious there was something wrong with him when he was running for office. Oh but he spoke nice.

Well, it wouldn’t surprise me if the Democrats paid of SCOTUS to not hear the cases. It was quite obvious to anybody with half a brain that the election was not the most secure election ever. There was too much evidence proving different.

Dementia Joe is far long brain dead and he’s not the one making decisions. Kamala and the other radical POS cabinet, who several of them are Obama picks, are writing his decisions and speeches. It’s time for all of us to press our government leaders and recruit supporters to abolish the demo party. Not only impeach Biden and the Kamal but also Pelosi and Schumer as well as several other swamp swimmers. Can’t trust these people before the 2020 election and definitely not now. This swamp is deeper than ever before and it’s time to take them down. they will pay big time and I pray these devil worshippers go down sooner than later. Impeach, Impeach, Impeach!!!

Well, the Democrats, including Biden, will rid of anything that Trump did. They were so afraid that Trump was getting close to their corruption that they had to do something to get him out of office. It’s corruption galore and Soros is behind a lot of it and those Democrats answer to that evil man. He hates the U.S.

My exact thoughts . You nailed it my fellow American. EO Joe is just a puppet for those corrupt Democrats . Biden is done . He is not mentally or physically competent enough to hold the most powerful position in the World. Damn shame these criminals are placing him in the limelight to take the blame an fall for these corrupt morons. The law needs to wake up and recognize the crimes and corruption carried out by these politicians. Start with impeachments , Biden , Harris , Pelosi , Schumer just to name a few that have committed crimes against America. I guess they are above the law . They make the laws. Where does it end

Biden and Harris need to be impeached and any Democrat that can not stand for America and our Constitution need to go to. Call, write and email you Representatives Senators daily until we get results. Write to the supreme Court about the treason committed in the election. Urge them to rethink there decision to not look into the election fraud before our country goes down in flames.
