On Friday afternoon, a group of Senate Republicans sent a letter to President Joe Biden condemning his administration’s “plan to defund, deprive police of critical lifesaving resources by executive fiat.”

The Senators, led by Senate Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Chuck Grassley of Iowa, expressed extreme concern over Biden’s proposed executive order (EO) that limits law enforcement’s access to nonlethal and lifesaving resources.

“Dear Mr. President,” the letter begins:

According to recent news reports, the White House is working with the Department of Justice on an executive order (hereinafter, “EO”) that would impose various police reforms and criminal-justice reforms on federal law enforcement, and possibly on state and local law enforcement, without Congress passing police reform or criminal justice reform legislation.[1] Specifically, according to screenshots[2] of a draft of such EO, the Administration would unilaterally impose the following new policies on law enforcement: restrictions to the 1033 program, expanding pattern and practice authority, planned expansion of 18 U.S.C § 242 prosecutions, and conditioning state and local law enforcement grants…

…Police officers will face a grim reality if this EO is enacted and their lifesaving equipment is restricted from them. Violent crime will continue to skyrocket when police officers are unable to stop these crimes and save innocent lives. We cannot understand why any elected official would want to stop law enforcement from safely doing their jobs other than to be able to tell their base of voters they are defunding the police.

In addition to Grassley, the letter was signed by Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Judiciary Committee members Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) and Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.).

The Senators say the restrictions “would come at a time when law enforcement needs our support more than ever.” Report after report shows homicides and violent crimes across the country are surging to record-breaking levels.

Amongst the most terrifying potential consequences is that the EO includes a section stating “the Attorney General and the Secretary of Homeland Security shall also use all tools at their disposal to promote adoption of the provisions of this executive order.”

The Senators point out in the letter that “this section is extremely concerning. It clearly lays out the groundwork for the Attorney General to strip power from the states and force them to comply with conditions on grants.”

    What is it with democrats? Crime is out of control in this country because of democrat policies against law enforcement and good old Joe still wants to defund law enforcement. Excellent job to all of the voters that elected this so called president. Electing the community organizer twice was bad enough, but you really outdid yourselves this time.

    Someone please check the air ducts in the Whitehouse, Biden’s beach house, Congress “especially the House of Representatives.” They must be all suffering from brain damage, if this is remotely true.

With gas prices at record highs, Biden CANCELS gas lease

“We did it, Joe” memes of Vice President Kamala Harris and Joe Biden are popping up all over social media alongside individuals photographs of the horrendously high prices they have to pay at the gas pump to fill their cars.

Biden has no intention of fixing it, as proven by the administration’s recent decision to actually cancel an oil and gas lease win the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska’s Cook Inlet.

This is nothing short of purposeful destruction of America. The Interior Department told The New York Post that the Cook Inlet lease sale would not move forward because of a “lack of industry interest in leasing in the area.”

In the Gulf of Mexico, the department canceled two lease sales, citing “conflicting court rulings that impacted work on these proposed sales.”

The timing is outrageous, considering “as of Thursday morning, the national average price of a gallon of regular gas stood at $4.418, according to AAA — the highest on record and $1.41 higher than at this time last year.”

Additionally, the scenario also displays just how much federal judges tend to completely disagree with his actions. “Biden imposed a moratorium on the sale of new leases one week after his inauguration, but the order was later blocked by a Louisiana federal judge who granted a preliminary injunction to 13 states that claimed they would suffer ‘irreparable injury’ from the White House move” writes The Post.

At least federal judges are watching out to keep our country afloat, let along thriving, considering our own President and Vice President will not.

Republicans and energy industry representatives are fuming over the decision. “Yesterday, Americans paid the highest price for gasoline in history,” tweeted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). “At the same time Biden just canceled our largest pending American oil & gas lease sale.”

“Gas prices are at a record high, and Biden just canceled oil and gas leases in Alaska and the Gulf,” added Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). “Joe Biden is directly responsible for the high cost of gas.”

“It’s almost like the Biden administration WANTS gas prices to go higher” said Pennsylvania US Senate GOP candidate Carla Sands

“The President has spoken about the need for additional supplies in the market, but his administration has failed to take action to match that rhetoric,” Frank Macchairola of the American Petroleum Institute told CBS News, calling the cancellations “another example of the administration’s lack of commitment to oil and gas development in the US.”

“In the kind of price environment that we’re seeing, there are negative consequences to shutting off oil and gas development, both politically and practically,” he added.

If the administration had moved forward with the Alaskan lease, it would have covered more than 1 million acres, according to The Hill.
