At this point, we have to wonder if Biden and the Democrats are actually trying to destroy this country. He shut down our energy production by banning drilling on federal land. That has been the root cause of our gas price crisis and rising inflation. But, even though we all know that, Biden has not lifted a finger to reverse it.
His “brilliant” idea for addressing the gas price crisis was to release millions of barrels out of our strategic reserve—something meant to be kept for times of war. But much of that oil didn’t go to help Americans. Instead, Biden sold millions of it to our enemy, China.
And although this outraged Americans, Democrats are voting to do it again.
While U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve stockpiles have fallen to their lowest level since 1985, every congressional Democrat voted Wednesday to continue sending oil from the SPR to China…
During Biden’s first month in office, the U.S. had about 638 million barrels in its reserve. By March, one month into Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, reserves had fallen to 565 million barrels, and by July, 480 million barrels were left in the SPR, according to data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration…
Earlier this month, Republican Senators introduced legislation seeking to stop oil sales to China, Russia, North Korea and Iran.
“It’s inexplicable that Biden would allow oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to be exported to China,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said at the time. [Source: Just the News]
Okay, so here’s the play-by-play. Democrats know gas prices are so high, because of Biden’s policies. They also know that high gas prices are contributing to inflation and hurt working Americans.
They know that drilling for oil will lower prices and ease inflation.
But instead of doing that, they are selling off what oil we do have… to our biggest global rival.
Nobody does this unless they are willfully trying to hurt their country. At a time when oil is key to helping ease inflation and restore some of America’s fortunes, Democrats are selling off our oil to our biggest economic competitor.
And they wonder why we call them the “enemy of the people.”
Strategic oil reserves have fallen so low, that they match the lowest point since 1985—when we were first building the reserve. This is how poorly Biden is running the country. He’s actually moving us backward in time.
His policies are deliberately designed to weaken our economic stability, to both benefit Democrat donors overseas and force Americans to accept socialism.
The only problem? We know it is Biden’s fault this is all happening. So few Americans are willing to embrace his “solution” to problems he created.
It’s a lose-lose for Biden, yet he keeps pushing this agenda. Which really shows you how corrupt this administration is.
