Biden is exacerbating America’s energy crisis
"I guarantee you — I guarantee you — we are going to end fossil fuel."

We Knew this:

The Biden administration delays its activities through actions such as initially banning and then slow-walking lease sales on federal land or making drilling permits more difficult to obtain.

"I guarantee you — I guarantee you — we are going to end fossil fuel."

So said then-candidate Joe Biden to  environmental  activists at a campaign rally in 2019. The president has yet to deliver on his promise to turn the entire U.S.  energy  system on its head, but given the record high  gas prices  at the fuel pump, he's certainly made driving and powering homes punitively unavailable to low-income households.

The administration is keen on blaming the war in Ukraine for the hardships people are facing. This attempt is window dressing at best and blatant misinformation at worst. While European nations are heavily reliant on Russian gas in particular, the United States only used to get about 8% of its supplies from Russia. Most crude oil is imported here from Canada. Indeed, even Mexico is more important for America's oil trade than President Vladimir Putin's Russia.

Another striking difference with most European nations is the fact that the U.S. has its own oil reserves. In theory, this would mean more energy independence. However, oil drilling permits have been cut by more than half since Biden came to office . Biden says oil companies should feel encouraged to increase capacity. But the industry has hit back by revealing how the Biden administration delays its activities through actions such as initially banning and then slow-walking lease sales on federal land or making drilling permits more difficult to obtain.

Washington is eager to point to the fact that companies fail to use a number of permits while conveniently leaving out that the government also regulates the use of the drillings and associated costs in certain areas, making a large section of them useless in practice. When Biden's energy secretary, Jennifer Granholm, was asked how the U.S. plans to increase oil production,  she laughed out loud . The public isn't laughing with her.

Curiously, even the Europeans have picked up on the notion that the U.S. holds the cards in the not-so-global race to ramp up energy production. French President Emmanuel Macron deliberately chose a walk at the G-7 to corner Biden in front of TV cameras and microphones, alerting him to the fact that Gulf nations will probably not increase their oil-pumping capacities . These are facts that Washington must be well aware of, making the stunt politically decipherable: Macron told Biden that the U.S. must step up and export more oil to strategic allies.

Eco-bling won't save the planet.  And malarkey only has value inside the beltway.  So, what's the real plan, Joe?

Democrats are climbing in bed with a lot of multi-national corporations to push 'green'.  And those multi-nationals seem to be getting a lot of free, public 'green'.  It's beginning to look like Democrats are trying to control the energy sector so they can hold the American people hostage.  Naturally that will require more autocrats creating regulations without interfering with Congressional perpetual political campaigns.

Seems like when the cries to 'do something' grow louder, Democrats expend much more effort in 'doing nothing'.  Biden is only delivering a liberal truth, we must kill the economy to save it.  Vote early, vote often.
