White House Director of the National Economic Council Larry Kudlow called upon policy makers to put their obligations towards Americans citizens at CPAC on Friday, stating that helping American workers return to the workforce should remain the priority over immigration visa programs.

Kudlow’s remarks contrast sharply with recent remarks attributed to White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney. Mulvaney is said to have described the United States as “desperate” for more legal immigration at a private gathering of political elites in England earlier this month, stating that the country needed more workers to sustain economic growth.

It seems to have escaped Mulvaney that millions of working-age Americans are currently out of the labor force. The manpower to grow the economy in a nation of 330 million people is already here- unfortunately, millions of Americans appear to have been largely sidelined from the economy by low wages, scarce opportunities for those with criminal records, and the outsourcing and automation of middle class jobs in entire swathes of the country.

Kudlows’ remarks possibly represent a gentle pushback against Mulvaney’s call for buffed legal immigration. However, the latter may be set to depart from the Trump administration, after recent reports indicate that the former Republican Congressman may be preparing to take a cushy job of the world of prestigious Washington, D.C conservative think tanks.

As Biden Eyes “Transition Away” From Fossil Fuels, Pennsylvania is Second-Largest Natural Gas Producer in US

Destroying Pennsylvanian jobs.

Published

Joe Biden’s announcement that he plans on a “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels as an energy source may not go over smoothly with the people of Pennsylvania- a state that has scored as the second largest producer of natural gas anywhere in the country.

Joe Biden admitted at the Thursday debate that he plans to “transition away from the oil industry,” citing pollution.

The United States Energy Information Administration identifies a considerable 20.0% of national natural gas production as coming from the state of Pennsylvania, making it the second biggest producer behind Texas. The state punches well above its weight in doing so, producing almost as much natural gas as Texas despite having less than half of its population.

Biden has sought to dismiss his track record of support for the banning of fracking oil extraction, employing a similar thinly veiled rhetorical trick by stating he’d only decline to allow any new fracking.

The energy industry continues to be a source of gainful, family-supporting employment for over ten million Americans. It’s not an option to “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels in the immediate future- a fact Biden tacitly admitted to after the debate suggestion, perhaps indicating that he realized the political folly of the statement.

A study from the American Petroleum Industry indicates that more than 322,000 Pennsylvanians are employed by the natural gas industry that Biden wants to transition away from.

Pennsylvania is shaping up as the most critical swing state in the election, and in nearly every plausible election night scenario the winner of the state’s 20 electoral votes secures the 270 needed to win the election.

Perhaps Joe Biden should transition away from national politics, and leave policy answers relating to carbon emissions, the environment and a strong energy industry to those more considerate of the role of the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania and around the country.
