President Biden’s advisors are reportedly considering sending him to Saudi Arabia to push the kingdom to pump more oil as prices soar to over $130 a barrel.
Biden has so far held off on banning Russian oil imports despite bipartisan pressure to do so. While the U.S. has tried to present a united front with its European allies on sanctions, Biden is considering going it alone with banning Russian oil imports, according to Bloomberg.
Meanwhile, White House officials met this weekend with Venezuela’s corrupt President Nicolás Maduro to talk oil and gas exports.
A trip to Saudi Arabia would force the White House to compromise on its emphasis on human rights as they scramble to divert the U.S. from Russian gas. The potential visit was first reported by Axios.
Let me get this straight:
Biden killed the KXL pipeline.
Biden ended new leases in Alaska, New Mexico, and elsewhere.
Biden has totally reversed Trump’s making America energy independent and has waged a regulatory war on the oil and gas industry.
Biden has twice dumped oil from our strategic reserves.
Biden’s sanctions on Russia explicitly exempted Russian petroleum.
Now he’s turning to Saudi Arabia and Venezuela for oil but will not turn on American oil production.
At what point does gutting our oil supply and buying more oil from anti-American enemy nations technically count as treason?
Because honestly, if the Republicans win the majority in the House and Senate, I want them to impeach Biden and Harris over this and put in a Republican who will reinstate Trump’s oil policy.
It’s not just about the cost of gas, it’s about the strength of our strategic position.
