The corporate press is already fawning over the Biden administration.
There’s been little pushback as Joe Biden signs an unprecedented number of executive orders.
But Biden’s spokeswoman got hit with one question that left her stunned.
With just 20 days in office, Joe Biden has signed a jaw-dropping 52 executive orders.
That dwarfs the number Donald Trump signed in his first three weeks – which Biden claimed was “dictatorial.”
One of the executive orders Biden signed stopped all construction on the Keystone XL pipeline and banned new fracking permits on federal land, proving that he was lying during the presidential campaign.
Biden’s move on the pipeline cost 11,000 union jobs, and some studies estimate his actions could end up costing roughly one million jobs in the energy sector.
Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary Jen Psaki about the thousands of people who just lost their jobs thanks to Biden’s executive order.
Fox News’s Peter Doocy is back and he’s brought the receipts on energy to Jen Psaki.
Needless to say, she didn’t like that he pressed her on what’s the plan for laid off workers to get these fantastical “green” jobs that Biden and Kerry keep talking about (1/2) pic.twitter.com/czz45M9tXK

Democrats always promise newer and better “green” jobs, but never come through.
And the reason why is because the facts on the ground have not changed.
There is not an organic demand for widespread green technology – the government has to generate that demand through subsidies, tax credits, and prohibitive regulation.
Fossil fuels still remain the most efficient and effective source of energy by far.
Wind and solar energy is not reliable and takes up a lot of land to produce – which means environmentalists are pushing for green technologies that will require displacing more animal populations and destroy more natural forests.
Not to mention, fossil fuels will still need to be used in order to build the infrastructure for their clean energy systems.
In reality, the radical environmentalist movement is a boondoggle and a Trojan horse so the left can take over more sectors of the economy.
The Biden administration might be able to provide “make-work” green jobs, but it will only hurt the economy in the long run because it’s a poor use of labor production and resources.
Meanwhile, climate-change activists will continue globetrotting around the world on their private jets.
