Texas Scorecard by  Luca Cacciatore February 2, 2024

Cruz is refusing to stay silent on the Biden administration’s conspicuously-timed pause on liquified natural gas exports.

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz is accusing the Biden administration of proverbially “declaring war” on Texas with last week’s decision to temporarily pause applications for liquified natural gas (LNG) export terminals.

The Texas Republican slammed the decision—which Texas Scorecard reported on last week— during a Friday episode of his “Verdict” podcast with co-host Ben Ferguson.

What President “Joe Biden did is effectively sanction the state of Texas,” Cruz contended. “This is declaring war on Texas.”

A fact sheet issued January 26 by the White House cited outdated LNG guidelines and concerns with greenhouse gas emissions as motivating the temporary suspension hitting all countries not under a Free Trade Agreement (FTA) with the U.S.

The countries with FTAs are Australia, Bahrain, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Israel, Jordan, South Korea, Morocco, Oman, Panama, Peru, Singapore, Canada, and Mexico.

Within the U.S., the administration’s move most disproportionately affects Texas’ economy.

They want to turn TX blue very badly.  There should be no doubt about it.
Romans 12:16-21

Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty, but associate with the lowly, do not claim to be wiser than you are.  Do not repay anyone evil for evil, but take thought for what is noble in the sight of all.  If it is possible, so far as it depends on you, live peaceably with all…do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
