Joe Biden's energy strategy doesn't seem to make much sense. The only way to make the most sense would be if it's trying to destroy an American energy sector. He's been targeting the energy sector from the moment he took office.
This is one reason why the cost of gasoline under Biden reached record levels. In order to make it appear like he's dealing with the issue, he's actually trying to keep gas prices low by draining the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. It puts our security in danger if there's an actual emergency. It would be possible to have affordable, reliable electricity — and indeed we did under the administration of President Donald Trump — if Biden only had a reasonable policy. However, Biden's policy is about restricting our drilling, while reaching towards oppressive governments like Saudi Arabia and Venezuela to ask for oil.
The Biden team has made a move to ease sanctions on Venezuela and throw human rights issues under the bus as a way of obtaining oil. Biden's latest move towards Venezuela is just a bit crazy.
The decision, aside from making little sense, is, by Biden's standards, detrimental to the environment. There is petroleum throughout America that would not require international transportation to get to an American market, however Biden does not permit the pipelines and drilling industry to reach the market.
Instead, he's permitting drilling to be conducted in Venezuela which will require transportation of some 2,000 miles in order to arrive in the United States with increased risk to water quality and wildlife on the way as opposed to if the oil were refined, drilled, and then transported to the United States.
In addition, their production isn't as clean as that of the oil that is produced in the United States. How is this in line with the climate skeptics of the left? It's not. The only conclusion that you can make is that Biden and the Biden team are determined to destroy the nation.
Senator. John Kennedy (R-LA) put it perfectly into words how terrible Biden's policies are:
“I used to have a beagle named Roger, and Roger was a rascal,” Kennedy said. “About every two weeks, Roger would run off — he'd always come back — but about half the time he'd come back dragging roadkill that he would hide under my back porch,” Kennedy said. “President Biden's energy policy looks like something Roger used to keep under my back porch.”
“It is a fact that America has the greatest, the strongest, economy in all of human history,” Kennedy added. “We cannot run our economy without fossil fuels – at least not now and not later. It's also the case that with technology and reserves, America can produce every drop of natural gas and oil that we require and still have plenty to offer to our neighbors,” he reminded.
Kennedy claimed that we can produce enough fuel for our own people and allies, without needing to make appeals to and place ourselves at the mercy of “countries that hate us [who then] will have more money to buy weapons to try to kill us.” “It's a moronathon,” Kennedy declared. However, Biden does not seem to have “embraced the woke or berserk wing of the Democrat Party, and woke ideology says we need to get rid of oil and gas in the United States.”
Kennedy said you could eliminate “all oil and gas in America tomorrow” and it won't have any impact on the global temperature, since you have countries such as China that do whatever they like, and it's just going to harm us and our economy.
“It also adds to inflation, this new policy of the president's,” Kennedy said. “It results in an increase in the price of oil and natural gas so, when a honeybun costs you $20, you can thank President Biden for that too.”
