Texas Governor Greg Abbott is preparing to launch some legal battles against President Biden over his climate initiatives, which Governor Abbott claims are “hostile” and “job killers.”

According to the Daily Mail, the Republican governor signed an executive order last Thursday that directed state agencies in Texas to “use all lawful powers and tools to challenge any federal action that threatened the continued strength and vitality of the emergency industry.”

Abbott’s order came in response to Biden’s climate czar John Kerry’s comments that blue-collar energy workers were fed lies when they were told that environmental protections would come at a cost to their jobs and ultimately their livelihoods.

“They’ve been fed the notion that somehow dealing with climate is coming at their expense,” John Kerry said of energy workers during a briefing at the White House on Wednesday. “No, it’s not. What’s happening to them is happening because of other market forces already taking place,” Kerry explained.

Abbott vowed to protect the energy industries. “Texas is going to protect the oil and gas industry from any type of hostile attack launched from Washington D.C.,” the Governor said on Thursday about his plans to launch litigation against Biden.

Abbott called Biden’s actions and recent executive orders “regulatory overreach” that could “damage the stability of the Texas economy.”

“On his very first day in office, President Joe Biden signaled extreme hostility toward the energy industry, and thus toward Texas, by rejoining the job-killing Paris Agreement and signing Executive Order 13990,” Abbott continued.

Beyoncé honored Lyric Chanel, a young fan who passed away on Friday after battling brain cancer and anaplastic ependymoma for two years.

Lyric and her family documented her journey on her Instagram page, which garnered nearly 600,000 followers and celebrities’ attention, including Beyoncé.

“Just got news from Dr that Lyric is Dying and only have days to live….” a Wednesday post on the child’s Instagram page read. “These are the hardest words to have to hear.”

On Friday, it was announced that the 13-year-old had died earlier that morning.

“Lyric gained her angel wings this morning at the age of 13 years old,” the caption read. “Lyric bravely battled Anaplastic Ependymoma and endured more than a child ever should. She loved singing, listening to music, and dancing. I know she most definitely dancing with all the angels right now. Watch over your family baby girl! You are forever missed!💜💜💜”

The “Love on Top” singer sent Lyric flowers in September after the young girl posted old videos of her singing the hit song when she was younger.

After hearing of Lyric’s passing, the singer created a video montage on her website, which features a compilation of videos and pictures of Lyric smiling, singing, and dancing. The background music is of Beyoncé singing a mashup of her songs, “Brown Skin Girl,” “Halo,” and “Love on Top.”

“Lyric it’s you/ You’re the one I love/ And you’re the one I need,” Beyoncé sings. “You’re the only thing I see/ Come on Lyric it’s you/ You’re the one that gives your all/ You’re the one I can always call/ When I need you baby everything stops/ You put my love on top.”

“I love you with all of my heart,” she ended.

Inaugural Poet Amanda Gorman Calls Out Security Guard Over Racial Discrimination Incident At Her Apartment

Sometimes it doesn’t matter who you are when it comes to being racially discriminated against, including Amanda Gorman, the poet who won over America after giving a stellar performance at President Joe Biden’s inauguration.

On Friday, Gorman posted about her racially motivated encounter with a security guard who followed her home and told her she looked “suspicious.”

Gorman,22, went to Twitter to call out the security guard, saying the incident was emblematic of “the reality of black girls” in the US, in which “one day you’re called an icon” but the next day considered a threat.

In another tweet, she added, “In a sense, he was right. I AM A THREAT: a threat to injustice, to inequality, to ignorance. Anyone who speaks the truth and walks with hope is an obvious and fatal danger to the powers that be.”

In February, the Los Angeles native spoke out about another incident in Rochester, New York. “We live in a contradictory society that can celebrate a black girl poet & also pepper spray a 9 yr old.” The incident led to protests and the suspension of three officers.

The Guardian contacted Gorman for further comment on the recent incident, but she did not say the ethnic origin of the guard.

“Let this story sink in. And realize how – while I’m glad it ended safe for Amanda Gorman – this type of confrontation is an every day occurrence for millions of our fellow Americans,” Virginia legislator Mark Keam tweeted.
