Joe Biden has blamed just about everyone under the Sun for the gas crisis. Except himself. The skyrocketing gas prices have been the most significant contributor to crippling inflation—which some say will lead to a painful recession.
Biden’s own policies have shut down American energy. Companies can’t drill on federal land. And other environmental regulations have made their business even costlier. But despite all this, Joe Biden is in the Middle East, begging Arabs to bring down prices by producing more oil.
Is this man insane?
American energy companies have had enough. And they are coming with knives out for Biden.
As President Joe Biden travels to Saudi Arabia this week to ask for increased energy production from the Middle Eastern nation, American energy industry representatives say Biden should be looking stateside instead.
“We think Texas is a lot closer than Saudi Arabia,’ American Exploration and Production Council CEO Anne Bradbury told Fox News Digital. “And President Biden does not need to be traveling halfway around the world searching for solutions to this energy crisis when the solution is right here at home,”
“If the administration is serious about increasing supply, they should be meeting with producers here at home instead of looking to governments overseas,” added American Petroleum Institute spokeswoman Christina Noel. [Source: Fox Business]
Makes sense, right? Joe Biden has flown all the way to Saudi Arabia, to ask them to produce more oil. He is doing this, even though he already knows the Arabs say they are at a “maximum.” Saudi has little interest in increasing their oil production, all so that Americans can afford gasoline.
But the American Exploration and Production Council called out Joe Biden for going all the way there when we have plenty of resources at home. Texas alone has enough oil to fuel the country for 200 years. Yet Biden has not once sat down with American energy companies to work out a plan.
Why? Is it because Biden isn’t really interested in “protecting the environment”? Last time I checked, Saudi Arabia was on planet earth, the same as Texas. So, why is it okay for them to produce more, but not companies that employ American citizens?
Perhaps Biden isn’t really interested in saving the planet, but enriching those foreign powers that have enriched him and his allies? He cares more about catering to globalists, than pushing policies that will help American workers.
Democrats scoff when we say our leaders need to put America first. That’s because the last thing they care about is helping Americans. It seems they are only interested in lining their pockets with cash, at all costs.
That’s why Biden is ignoring American energy companies and begging foreigners for more oil. All the while lying to our faces.
