In the 2019 presidential primary debates, Biden was asked if there was “any place for fossil fuels—including coal and fracking—in a Biden administration?”
Biden’s response was: “No.”
Biden wants to completely destroy oil and gas energy in America.
He continued “We would—we would work it out. We would make sure it’s eliminated.”
BUT BIDEN DIDN’T STOP THERE.
During the same debate, Trump pressed Biden on whether he would shut down the oil industry.
“I would transition from the oil industry, yes,” Biden responded.
Now we stand less than two years from that comment. The working class and small business owners have been hit especially hard by Biden’s plan to shut down the oil industry.
Gas prices are going through the roof (most recently 8.49 was reported for premium unleaded) but this may be exactly what Biden wanted!
Join Liberty Counsel Action in flooding Congress with demands that Biden stop choking our energy production. Send your critical faxes to Congress urging them to pass the “Energy Freedom Act” today.
Biden recently defended his environmental policies and regulations that obstructed domestic oil production in America, reiterating, “It’s simply not true that my administration or policies are holding back domestic energy production. That’s simply not true.”
The truth is that, on his first day in office, Biden signed an executive order blocking the Keystone XL pipeline.
Beyond that, Biden has been busy putting new EPA restrictions in place and appointing unaccountable energy “regulators,” all while blocking or impeding new energy projects. He rejoined the Paris Agreement and has a new policy on the “carbon tax” on wholesale electricity markets.
Biden launched the “Clean Electricity Standard,” which imposes burdensome regulations that have little or zero environmental benefit. He even “changed key inputs for economic and regulatory analysis, including raising the ‘social cost’ of greenhouse gases. These policies will mask the true consumer cost of regulatory actions,” said Abigale Tardif, a regulations policy analyst.
These are part of 25 distinct actions Biden has taken (or is pushing) that are making our energy and gas prices higher every day. However, Biden keeps saying:
We would be better off if Biden would just STOP doing the dozens of things that are raising energy costs in America!
Our congressional offices need to be flooded with messages of support for Sen. Cruz’s bill and other efforts like supplying natural gas so our nation can be self-reliant. Make your voice echo down the hallways of Congress and urge our federal legislators to demand energy production and independence today.
On a different battlefront, I was in an amazing all-day federal court hearing last Thursday defending our brave military heroes against Biden’s shot mandate. God brought incredible men and women to this battle, and we are standing with them.
The evening before the hearing, the military actively engaged in witness tampering and suppression of the truth by using orders to try to silence a military witness from speaking the truth.
Choking back tears, the witness who was threatened to not testify looked at the judge and said, “I have so many soldiers being destroyed by this vaccine. Not a single member of my senior command has discussed my concerns with me … I have nothing to gain and everything to lose by talking about it. I’m OK with that because I am watching people get absolutely destroyed.”
