Word came out this week that Biden was prepared to “address” the ongoing rise in fuel prices. Americans have been hit at the gas pump, as the cost of fuel increased throughout the year. Instead of rolling back policies that triggered this, Biden came up with another idea.
He announced he was going to release 50 million barrels of oil from the U.S. strategic oil reserve. That could help lower gas prices (for a while). But then it was revealed what he actually planned on doing with all that oil.
From Fox Business:
President Biden’s move to tap the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve is expected to supply Chinese and Indian oil needs as gas demands have led to global shortages, reports said Tuesday.
The White House said the Department of Energy will release 50 million barrels of oil held in U.S. reserves — 18 million of which have already been congressionally approved for sale.
Really? Does Biden care about America at all? After watching gas prices skyrocket all year long, it appeared Biden was going to do something about it. Yet right as he announced he would be depleting our emergency reserve of oil, we learn he was going to shell a lion’s share of it to China.
This is oil, mind you, Trump procured to protect America in the event of a war. And not only is Biden getting rid of it, be he’s selling it to one of our global rivals. Can you get any more anti-America than that?
This is after Biden begged Saudi Arabia, Russia, and China to pump more oil while refusing to let American companies pump more oil. He continues to push restrictive, “green” policies that are crippling America’s energy industry.
Karl Rove slammed Biden’s move, calling it fake.
From Fox News:
“This whole thing is a kabuki – it is a fake action to try and look like they’re doing something about it.”
I’m sure there are more than a few Americans who agree with him.
- Much of the oil Biden is releasing will be sold to China.
- American gas prices continue to rise, thanks to Biden’s agenda.
- Biden continues to clamp down on U.S. oil production.
