In my last editorial I focused on the fact that Joe Biden doesn’t have what it takes to be a president, but due to unusual circumstances of the pandemic he got in. The liberal wing of his party through Nancy Pelosi, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others have convinced Joe Biden go to war with fossil fuels.
Since taking office Joe Biden has cancelled the Keystone XL pipeline, halted new oil and gas leasing on Federal Lands and off shore waters, eliminated fossil fuel subsidies, made it harder to get drilling permits, and shutting down some platforms. Fracking is no longer tolerated.
By making fossil fuels less abundant inflation is quick to follow. Everything we consume is dependent on how much it costs to transport! If a tractor trailer is paying double for a gallon of diesel fuel, that cost is added to everything we buy as someone has to pay for the shipping.
Bidens poll numbers have fallen because the general public has begun to realize that he and the other Democrats are responsible for this inflation. He’s trying to blame the oil companies for making too much money. He’s going to Saudi Arabia to get on his knees and beg the King to pump more oil. This is after he ridiculed King Salman for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Bring your kneepads Joe!
The conversion to electric cars is not ready yet. We have no infrastructure for it, the cars take to long to charge and the idea of a battery only lasting 300 miles in unacceptable. The cars are too expensive! They need rare earth metals that are scarce and expensive to harvest. These cars need to become self-charging. One hundred years ago Nicola Tesla theorized that we could place an antenna somewhere, it would gather electricity from the stratosphere and that could power an electric car or anything else. Then we would have responsible climate change. But until that time it is meaningless to punish the American people with horribly high gas prices. It’s mean spirited. But we have a jackass in the White House and all he can do is sink his feet into the ground and brey.
