LIST: Biden Saying ‘No Fracking. No Fossil Fuels’ = Millions of Job Cuts

Posted by FactReal on October 26, 2020

Biden falsely claims he has never said he’d ban fracking.
Here’s the evidence that’s a lie

Joe Biden said he’ll ban fracking, ban coal plants,
and ban offshore drilling & drilling on federal land

Video copy

LIST: BIDEN STATING HE WANTS TO END FRACKING, FOSSIL FUELS…and put fossil fuel executives in jail:


Q: “Would there be any place for fossil fuels, including coal and fracking, in a Biden administration?”

BIDEN: “No, we would — we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated and no more subsidies for either one of those, either — any fossil fuel.”

Biden to young female (while grabbing her hand!!)

BIDEN: “Look into my eyes. I guarantee you, I guarantee you, we’re gonna end fossil fuel.”



Biden to far-left activist demanding Biden to commit to banning fracking:

BIDEN: “You gotta transition away from it. Look: You’re gonna ban fracking all across America, right now, right?”

Activist: “I would love to.”

BIDEN: “Yeah, I’d love to, too. I’d like to make sure we don’t — we can’t use any oil or gas. Period.”



Q: “What about, say, stopping fracking…?”
BIDEN: “Yes”

Q: “…and stopping new pipeline infrastructure?”

BIDEN: “Yes! Pipeline — exactly!”

BIDEN: “We are going to get rid of fossil fuels.”

BIDEN: “They [activists] want to do the same thing that I want to do, they want to phase out fossil fuels and we’re going to phase out fossil fuels.”

BIDEN to activist: “No more coal plants.”

[Democrat debate during the coronavirus pandemic]

BIDEN: “Number one, no more subsidies for the fossil fuel industry, no more drilling on federal lands, no more drilling, including offshore, no ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period, ends, number one.” […]

SANDERS: “You — you — you talk about — you know, I’m talking about stopping fracking as soon as we possibly can. I’m talking about telling the fossil fuel industry that they are going to stop destroying this planet — no ifs, buts and maybes about it. I’m talking about speaking to…”

BIDEN: “So am I.”

SANDERS: “Well, I’m not sure your proposal does that.” […]

BIDEN: “My plan takes on the fossil fuel industry and it unites the world.” […]

BIDEN: “No more — no new fracking.”

More Joe Biden attacks on energy:

Biden has shown a consistent hostility to energy industry workers. In December he suggested if coal miners lose their job due to his policies they should learn to code.

Biden has also said “we should put them in jail” when talking about fossil fuel executives.

Biden also endorsed a carbon tax on the American people, which will force households to pay much higher gasoline, heating, and cooling bills.

Job losses and economic impact of Dems’ agenda.

Analysis from economist Stephen Moore: ‘Democrats’ War on Fracking Will Cost Them in Battleground States‘ (Jan. 22 2020)

– At least $1 trillion of U.S. economic output is related to the shale revolution
– More than 1.5 million Americans are employed in the industry
– At least 4 million American jobs are tied to the shale oil and gas revolution in areas like auto production, construction, petroleum engineering, pipe fitting, service stations, steel production and trucking
– Ohio & Michigan have a combined total of more than 400,000 workers in the shale industry
– Pennsylvania has 320,000
– Colorado has more than 200,000 workers
– Florida has more than 200,000 workers
– Pittsburgh has become a global energy hub
– Ohio & Pennsylvania: whole towns that were once left for dead have revitalized thanks to shale gas and related industries
– Texas: Nearly 2 million Texas are employed in oil and gas and related industries

Biden will phase out nearly all conventional forms of energy

Report: Joe Biden’s debate pledge to destroy US oil industry is just the beginning

But make no mistake about it, Biden’s proposal to eventually eliminate the oil sector is just the tip of the iceberg. By the time Biden’s first term is over, should he win in November, America would be on track to phase out nearly all conventional forms of energy — including coal and natural gas, much of which is captured using hydraulic fracturing, commonly called “fracking.”


Demanding a “100% clean-energy economy” and “net-zero emissions” — which would be guaranteed by an “enforcement mechanism that includes milestone targets” — would result in the end of virtually all conventional energy operations in the United States, including those related to fracking, coal and oil.


Carbon-capture technology is incredibly expensive, and it would make the cost of using natural gas and other conventional energy sources so high that it would effectively force conventional energy companies out of the marketplace, along with the millions of jobs they support.

Biden’s radical team will push him to the left:

Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who said at a town hall in 2019, “There’s no question I’m in favor of banning fracking.”

Harris also co-sponsored the Senate version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s radical Green New Deal, which proposes to phase out all fossil fuels in just one decade.

Speaking of comrade AOC, Biden agreed to have her serve as a co-chair of his climate change “Unity Task Force” earlier this year, along with former Secretary of State John Kerry, who also supports phasing out all fossil fuels.

Migrants Sent $138 Billion to their Home Countries in 2016

Posted by FactReal on December 12, 2018

* Immigrants sent $138,165,000,000 in remittances (funds/assets) from the United States to other countries in 2016, according to the Pew Research Center.
* Out of those $138 billion, $54 billion were sent to Latin America by immigrants in the U.S. in the form of remittances. (See table below)

Note: Remittances are funds/assets sent by migrants to their home countries via formal channels such as banks. Estimates do not include the transfer of other assets, such as gifts, or informal monetary transfers.

Check their interactive map/table here.

Worldwide, Mexico ranked first in remittances ($28.1 billion) received by migrants living in the United States, followed by China ($15.4 billion), India ($10.7 billion) and the Philippines ($10.5 billion).


Among Latin American and Caribbean countries, Mexico has long received the highest amount of remittances.

$54 billion in remittances were sent to Latin America by immigrants in the U.S.
In 2016, immigrants living in the United States sent $28.1 billion in remittances to Mexico, followed by Guatemala ($6.8 billion), El Salvador ($4.2 billion), Dominican Republic ($4 billion), and Honduras (3.4 billion).

Country $ Amount
Mexico $28,126,000,000
Guatemala $6,756,000,000
El Salvador $4,194,000,000
Dom. Republic $4,088,000,000
Honduras $3,369,000,000
Colombia $1,537,000,000

Uruguay $18,000,000
Paraguay $16,000,000
Cuba $ ??
TOTAL $54,098,000,000

Pew Research Center also indicated:

Most of the remittance dollars flowing to Latin America come from the U.S., which is home to two-thirds of all migrants from Latin America and the Caribbean. (For migrants from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, this share is far higher – more than 80% of migrants from each of these countries live in the U.S., according to 2017 United Nations estimates.)

Great Job Numbers under Trump

Posted by FactReal on November 5, 2018

Investor’s Business Daily reported last Friday, Nov. 2, 2018:

October’s jobs numbers were real humdingers. Not only did companies hire 250,000 workers, but unemployment remained at 3.7%, a 50-year low, for the second month running. Some 711,000 people rejoined the workforce during the month. The total number of Americans employed, now at 156.562 million, also set another record. And no major industry cut jobs last month. None.

Today, as we noted recently, there are some 7.1 million job openings, but just over 6 million unemployed. There are in fact more jobs now than there are job-seeking workers to fill them. That’s something that’s never happened before. […]

If you’re a factory worker, these are the best times in years. Indeed, since Trump entered office, 19,000 new factory jobs have been added every month. In the previous four years, the average was 8,000 a month. […]

In October, the unemployment rate for Hispanic-Americans stood at just 4.4%. Go ahead and look back at the records. It’s never been that low before.

OBAMA 2011: Wanted Sequester Cuts. OBAMA 2013: Against Them (Video)

Posted by FactReal on February 19, 2013

2011 Obama defends automatic spending cuts (Nov. 21, 2011):
“Already some in Congress are trying to undo these automatic spending cuts. My message to them is simple: No.” “I will veto any effort to get rid of those automatic spending cuts to domestic and defense spending.”

2013 Obama predicts Armageddon if sequester cuts go through (Feb. 19, 2013):
“So these cuts are not smart. They are not fair. They will hurt our economy. They will add hundreds of thousands of Americans to the unemployment rolls. This is not an abstraction — people will lose their jobs.”

Obama’s is the Worst Economic Recovery in History (Graph, GDP Data)

Posted by FactReal on February 16, 2013

“Obama has presided over the worst multi-year recovery in American history since the end of World War II,” CNSNews found using public economic data. During Obama’s so-called economic recovery, the economy grew only 7.5% while other post-recession periods saw double-digit growth from 11.7% to 51.2%.

“From the end of the last recession in June 2009 until the fourth quarter of 2012, the economy grew only 7.5 percent, increasing from $12.7 trillion to $13.6 trillion,” explains CNSNews.

We prepared graphs and tables to illustrate how weak Obama’s economic recovery has been.
(Sources: Gross Domestic Product (GDP) since 1949 and NBER’s List of U.S. Recessions.)

(A recession/contraction is a period between a peak and a trough — see graph below.)

Officially, the last recession lasted from December 2007 to June 2009.
