If Joe Biden were trying to injure our energy position in relation to the rest of the world, in particular Russia, he couldn’t have done too much more to be destructive than what he’s already done.
We saw how Biden has harmed our energy position by attacking fossil fuels and cutting the Keystone XL Pipeline over climate change, and the green agenda. He’s now being sued over stopping the Pipeline. His explicit goal is for us to pump less, to have less domestic oil production.
Meanwhile he had no problem waiving sanctions and clearing the way for the Russia-controlled Nord Stream pipeline to be completed.
So, U.S. oil and gas = bad. But pumping up Russia’s power and energy control = good, to Biden.
That is likely impacting the spike in gas prices. U.S. oil prices, as of Tuesday, were at six-year highs, after OPEC failed to reach a deal on oil production, another factor in the spiking.
Jen Psaki was put on the spot with that yesterday. Reporters wanted to know why the prices have risen so much since Joe Biden came in, 40% since January. She tried to argue it was “seasonal fluctuations.”

So, that might prompt someone with sense to reevaluate his thought pattern on trying to reduce American production, right?
But Joe Biden has no sense. His solution? Ask OPEC to pump more oil, so the prices don’t go up more. So, he’ll ask them to pump more while he’s cutting our own production ability. As the Wall Street Journal phrased it, “As cognitive dissonance goes, this is a classic.”
We truly have gone back to the Seventies, with a Democrat trying to make us dependent once again, after President Donald Trump had built our energy independence.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) were among those busting Biden for his actions.

Biden wants OPEC to produce more oil while his regime tries to shut down U.S. oil and natural gas production.
If Joe actually cared about good jobs and lowering gas prices, he’d support American energy dominance! https://t.co/Nfvj7RNIs2

Lost in the OPEC story is that the market is scared 400,000 new barrels per day won't be coming online.
3 years ago US producers were pumping 2 *million* more barrels per day than right now.
OPEC back in drivers seat.

Even the Premier of Alberta, Canada, weighed in, finding it a “very peculiar approach to energy & global security.”
President Biden vetoed a pipeline that would ship 830,000 barrels of oil per day to the US from friendly Canada.
But he is now urging OPEC dictatorships and Putin’s Russia to increase oil production & shipments to the US.
A very peculiar approach to energy & global security. https://t.co/ugaJzFwpTM

They all nail Biden to the wall.
Welcome back to the days of bending over and being “flexible” for our enemies and dictator states.
This is going to continue to hit people in the pocketbook; hopefully, they will know exactly where to lay the blame for it when they have to deal with the cost of this all. They need to remember come November 2022.
