Biden is accused of stealing money from school children

 March 25, 2024

President Joe Biden has just been accused of stealing money from school children in Texas. 

The accusation comes from Dawn Buckingham, Texas' land commissioner.

She detailed her accusation in a message that she posted to her X account last week.

The lawsuit

What Buckingham is taking issue with, here, according to Breitbart News, is the Biden administration's decision to block new exports of liquid natural gas.

Accordingly, Buckingham has filed a lawsuit to put an end to this policy.

Breitbart reports, "The lawsuit states this will increase methane emissions and reduce or eliminate critical economic benefits, including jobs, infrastructure updates, and long-term development."

In the lawsuit, each point is taken in turn. For example, it states that "the oil and gas industry supports more than 2.5 million jobs statewide, many of which are high-paying and bolster the economy in rural areas of Texas."

Buckingham, in the lawsuit, concludes, "In light of these facts, it’s unconscionable that our own federal government would take such drastic steps with the goal of shutting down this thriving industry."

Stealing from schoolchildren

Buckingham, also, specifically accuses Biden of stealing from school children.

"Biden’s move to halt these exports will steal money from Texas schoolchildren," she wrote. 

Breitbart News explains the accusation, reporting:

The Texas General Land Office deposited more than $30 billion into the state’s Permanent School Fund since its inception, the commissioner stated in the lawsuit. During the last fiscal year (September 1, 2022, to August 31, 2023) energy production in Texas resulted in $339 million in natural gas revenues for the fund.

According to Buckingham, the Biden administration's decision to stop liquid natural gas exports will take this money away from the Permanent School Fund and, thus, away from the children who benefit from the fund. Buckingham, in her own words, says that the export ban will "hamstring Texas’s ability to maximize revenue for the Permanent School Fund."

Texas has been joined by 15 other states in this lawsuit against the Biden administration. The lawsuit is taking place in the Western District of Louisiana. The Biden administration, at the time of this writing, has not responded to Buckingham's allegations.
