Former Keystone pipeline worker rips Biden after comments on oil production
A former Keystone XL pipeline welder sharply criticized President Biden after the White House announced new measures intended to drive gasoline and energy prices down on Wednesday.

"I don't know how he gets away with keep saying that he doesn't have anything to do with [high gas prices] when they've got everything to do with it," Neal Crabtree told FOX Business in an interview.

Crabtree — a member of an Arkansas pipeliners' union who had worked on the Keystone XL project in Nebraska — and hundreds other workers were laid off hours after the president took office on Jan. 20, 2021. Shortly after his inauguration, Biden canceled the federal permit for the Keystone XL pipeline, a project that would have transported 830,000 barrels of oil per day from Canada to Texas.

Biden's executive order nixing the pipeline stated that the U.S. would prioritize the "development of a clean energy economy" instead of fossil fuel production.

Rubio Met With Applause From Debate Audience As He Schools Demings on Standing Up to China

On Tuesday night, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) stood strong as he debated a shrill and desperate Rep. Val Demings (D-FL) who is looking to unseat him as he runs for re-election. Rubio earned applause as he responded to a question about if he would accept the 2022 election results that he's not Stacey Abrams, as well as towards the very end of the debate, when he and Demings were talking about China.
Rubio's Twitter bio mentions that he has been banned from both China and Russia. 

Speaking more seriously, Rubio warned "the 21st century will be defined--defined--by the relationship between the United States and China," and that China wants to "replace us."

Rubio declared "we have to begin to invest in our military, particularly in the Indo-Pacific region to defeat the weapons systems they're innovating." Taking a shot at how woke the military has become under the Biden administration, Rubio added "we don't need the Pentagon spending all its time producing videos on the proper use of pronouns, we need them focused on how to blow up aircraft carriers by China."
