  • Biden Scolds Republicans: “Are You Saying That We’d Rather Have Lower Gas Prices in America Than Putin’s Iron Fist in Europe?” (VIDEO)

    Joe Biden on Wednesday delivered remarks on soaring gas prices from his fake White House set in the South Court Auditorium. Biden repeated the same lies in his speech and blamed Vladimir Putin for high gas prices. "Let’s remember how we got here: Putin invaded Ukraine,” said Biden. Gas prices spiked before Putin invaded Ukraine. Joe Biden scolded Republicans and said there is no way they can simultaneously blame him for high gas prices AND oppose Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. "So, for all those Republicans criticizing me for high gas prices in America, are you now saying we were wrong...

    Oops! Old Joe said the quiet part out loud. Speaking to reporters in Japan on Monday, Joe Biden admitted that the current record gas crisis in America is ALL ON PURPOSE. On Monday the US saw its 12th straight day of record all-time high gas prices. We also learned this weekend that the Biden regime was not issuing ANY new drilling permits during this current crisis. They said it was a math error when they were confronted. Joe Biden: When it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that God willing when...

    John Hinderaker has been writing at PowerLine about the economic catastrophe taking place in Sri Lanka. Until very recently, that country was “not only food-secure, but a major agricultural exporter” of products like rice, tea and rubber. One would think that creating prosperity and lifting millions out of poverty would be welcomed by government and social activists. But no. The government of Sri Lanka decided to mandate new policies prompted not by the recommendations of anyone with experience in industry, commerce or basic economics, but by the howling of environmentalists demanding “all organic” farming. Despite the fact that more than...
  • Biden administration cancels oil and gas lease sales in Alaska, Gulf of Mexico

    The Interior Department will not move forward with planned oil and gas lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska’s Cook Inlet, it announced Wednesday night. A spokesperson for the department confirmed the Cook Inlet lease sale would not proceed due to insufficient industry interest. Meanwhile, the planned sale of two leases, lease 259 and lease 261, in the Gulf of Mexico will not proceed due to contradictory court rulings on the leases, the spokesperson confirmed. Shortly after taking office, President Biden signed an executive order freezing all new oil and gas leasing on federal lands. Last summer, Judge...
  • Oil From Joe Biden’s Emergency Strategic Petroleum Reserve Release is Heading to Europe- Not to US Consumers

    Biden tapped into the US Strategic Oil Reserves in an attempt to bring down oil prices. Now we know that at least one ship, the Suezmax ship Advantage Spring, is sailing for Rotterdam filled with US oil. Zero Hedge reported: Joe Biden’s decision to release 180 million barrels of oil from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve – one million barrels per day for 180 days, ending just before the midterm elections which the Democrats will lose in an avalanche – was meant to help lower US gasoline prices “because Putin price hike.” Instead, it is heading for Europe. According to...

    Ever since the international community aimed to punish the Iranian regime for its illicit nuclear activities and its support of global terrorism and regional warmongering, Tehran has tried to find ways to sidestep the sanctions regime through money laundering, smuggling and hostage taking. In March 2021, in his new year’s address and three months before installing Ebrahim Raisi as the new president, the Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei gave instructions about how to steer the regime away from being vulnerable to sanctions. “Our emphatic advice to the officials of our country, whether those who are now in office or...

  • Harvard economist and former Obama advisor says Russia is 'basically a big gas station' and is otherwise 'incredibly unimportant' in the global economy

    ussia's economy is "incredibly unimportant in the global economy except for oil and gas," Jason Furman, a Harvard economist and former advisor to President Barack Obama, told The New York Times. "It's basically a big gas station," he said. His comments come as the West prepares heavy sanctions on Russia if it invades Ukraine. While they have the potential to throw the Russian economy into chaos, these measures could also reverberate to further damage the US, Europe, and the rest of the world as they battle inflation and rising energy prices — a ripple effect that the West hopes to...
  • Why Does Biden Play Favorites Among the Arab Gulf States?

    If you think the Biden administration is disengaging from the Middle East and the Gulf region, think again. This week, the White House asked Congress to designate Qatar as a major non-NATO ally, which “opens up a full range of opportunities,” including exercises, operations and Qatar’s “acquisition of capabilities,” according to the Defense Department. Qatar’s status as the world’s top gas exporter makes it a valuable ally. The harder thing to explain is why Biden picks favorites among the energy-rich Gulf monarchies, all of them firmly autocratic. The president has embraced Qatar while keeping Saudi Arabia and the United Arab...
  • Joe Biden's Dirty Little Secret: He Wants Higher Gasoline Prices

    When he announced last week that he would release more oil from the American Strategic Petroleum Reserve, resident Joe Biden told the American people he is doing everything possible to bring down gas prices at the pump. That's a lie. This administration and the climate change crazies have declared war on American energy. They want high oil and gas prices. The Biden master plan is for American oil and gas production and consumption to go to zero over the next 15 to 20 years. How do you achieve that goal? By making oil and gas so expensive and so unavailable...
  • Biden’s Climate Hypocrisy Endangers Energy Security

    By now, many among us are familiar with the words Green New Deal, net zero, Paris agreement, carbon neutral, etc. All are names for energy policies aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions. However, the very politicians who preach the climate gospel — and espouse anti-fossil fuel policies — have embraced fossil fuels with gusto. Last week, U.S. President Joe Biden called for an increase in oil production from OPEC countries to rein in gas price increases in America, thus contradicting his calls for a reduction in fossil fuel consumption. Will there be an end to politicians’ fossil fuel hypocrisy? Biden:...

The cargo is only the second oil import by the United States from Iran since late 1991, data on EIA’s website showed.

    When the U.S. created NATO, a primary purpose of the alliance was to serve as a western wall to defend Germany against the 400,000 Russian troops on the eastern side of the Elbe River. Seventy years later, Germany has decided to double its dependence on Vladimir Putin's Russia for the natural gas needed to run the German economy, despite the opposition of her great protector, the USA. The Biden administration decided to waive sanctions on Matthias Warnig, the ally of Putin whose company, Nord Stream 2 AG, is laying the pipeline beneath the Baltic Sea from Russia to Germany that...

    Fearing that incessant warnings about manmade climate cataclysms would not be enough to end U.S. fossil fuel use, the Obama-Biden administration instructed a special Interagency Working Group to concoct a “social cost of carbon” concept. The SCC would “scientifically” calibrate the dollar value of damages that a ton of carbon dioxide emitted today in America would inflict on the USA and world in the future.The price tag was set at $22/ton in 2010, raised to $36/ton in 2013, and just as arbitrarily increased to $40, before finishing the Obama era at $51/ton. President Trump disbanded the IWG and had the...

    Joe Biden wasted no time destroying tens of thousands of jobs his first day in office by canceling the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Biden also put a 60-day moratorium on new oil and natural gas leases and drilling permits on federal lands. New Mexico’s leaders are worried that Biden’s war on the energy business will devastate the state’s economy, where education, jobs and public programs depend on funding from the industry. Joe Biden (supposedly) won New Mexico with 54.29% of the vote vs 43.50% for Trump. “During his inauguration, President Biden spoke about bringing our nation together. Eliminating...
