If everything is Vladimir Putin’s fault, we might want to consider why he has so much influence over America but only since Brain-Dead Biden became president? Any takers? Okay, let’s try something a bit easier.
Biden Inc. just canceled what CBS News calls “one of the most high-profile oil and gas lease opportunities pending before the Interior Department.”
In a statement shared first with CBS News, the Department of the Interior cited a “lack of industry interest in leasing in the area” for the decision to “not move forward” with the Cook Inlet lease sale.
Alaska Senator Murkowski, who might help you move but move a body, knows what butters her bread, and it’s not Green New Deal Voodoo.
“I can say with full certainty, based on conversations as recently as last night, that Alaska’s industry does have interest in lease sales in Cook Inlet. To claim otherwise is simply false, not to mention stunningly short-sighted. The Biden administration needs to recognize how this decision is going to hurt Alaskans, reverse it immediately, and get the federal oil and gas program back on track now.”
So, Biden inc, which can’t tell the truth, has been put on notice by Murkowski, who can be convinced not to tell it. She says there is an interest. He says there is not.
What do we know?
Joe flipped a switch on day one and closed the Trump Admin’s open door to oil and gas development; replaced it with foreign sources.
Their policy is that foreign oil (more expensive, less accessible, or reliable) is better for the environment and national security.
We bought from our enemies instead of ourselves, including from Putin’s Russia. They then used Vlad’s Invasion as an excuse to cut off another source of supply.
The Democrats have tried to whitewash the meaning of star-chamber hearings from 2021 into early 2022, pressuring oil and gas executives to increasingly lower output annually. The goal was to cut production.
They have canceled “one of the most high-profile oil and gas lease opportunities pending before the Interior Department.”
Claiming there is a lack of industry interest makes no sense. Making “people” do things is the Democrat motto. “Government Knows Best” is stitched on every pillow. They are the self-proclaimed arbiters of all, Hirito before Hiroshima and Nagasaki, The word and hand of God.
You can make interest happen. Throw billions at it, do it by force, or (hey, how about) through favorable lease rates and tax incentives; more than one way to skin that donkey.
But someone has to want to do that, and most of those people are out here with you and me, not in there with them, knowing better. So, at some point, the Administration will have lean on an old saw to dismiss yet another act demonstrating that their goal is to shift us away from fossil fuels no matter the damage to Americans or the nation.
So, how did Vladimir Putin manage to get the Biden Administration to cancel one of the most high-profile oil and gas lease opportunities pending before the Interior Department.”
And why does that, alongside any of the other things Putin has only been “able to do” to the Biden Administration, justify putting up with another minute with them or their party in charge of anything?
