President Joe Biden’s energy policy is lunacy. Trapped deep in the pockets of climate change activists (who knows if he really believes what they’re pushing), his energy policy has resulted directly in higher gas costs and the United States losing its energy independence and becoming, once again, dependent on foreign oil from countries like Venezuela and organizations like OPEC+, which are not exactly on America’s list of BFFs. Biden, because he has refused to encourage and, in many ways, allow greater energy production in the U. S., has been reduced to begging for oil from others. This is pathetic and in no way in the best interest of the U. S. Why would he adopt such a policy? Because he wants to be re-elected in 2024 and he wants Democrats to maintain hold on the Congress in the 2022 mid-terms next month. For some reason, and this alone may be the greatest evidence of Biden’s rumored dementia, Biden firmly believes that catering to the far-left apostles of climate disaster is essential to those goals. Everything, of course, points to the opposite conclusion, and it looks like the Republicans are going to enjoy a wave election, certainly taking over the House and maybe even the Senate, and Biden’s energy policy will be a big reason why.
Biden’s stealing from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to force gas prices down for the sake of political gain (which didn’t come), reduced the reserves to their lowest level since 1985. Interestingly, about five million barrels of oil from our reserves were sold to other countries, including almost one million barrels to a Chinese company with ties to Hunter Biden, Joe’s scandal-ridden son. Having little left in the reserves from which to steal, Biden went to Saudi Arabia to beg them to convince OPEC+ to increase oil production. Biden explained that the Saudi’s “energy resources are vital for mitigating the impact on global supplies of Russia’s war in Ukraine” (his administration’s strategy is to blame Putin – among others, but never himself – for higher gas prices, though prices began rising well before Russia invaded Ukraine), even as he himself insisted that he was not going to Saudi Arabia to ask for more oil production.
Now Saudi Arabia, in response to Biden’s threatening consequences for their refusing to increase oil production, which is regarded as throwing their support to Russia in its war against Ukraine, has claimed that the Biden administration asked them to postpone the decrease in OPEC’s oil production until after the mid-term elections. Last week, National Security Council spokesman John Kirby admitted that this was true, saying, “We presented Saudi Arabia with analysis to show that there was no market basis to cut production targets, and that they could easily wait for the next OPEC meeting to see how things developed.” That next OPEC meeting is after the mid-terms.
So, Joe Biden attempted to use his position as President of the United States to pressure a foreign nation to participate in a plan to influence a U. S. election. And now that that pressure didn’t work, he is threatening “consequences” against that foreign nation.
I guess I don’t have to tell you that that is exactly the grounds on which the Democrats in the House impeached President Donald Trump in 2019.
Will the Republicans impeach Biden in 2023 if they take control of the House? Maybe. I hope not. It seems impeachment has become a tool to discredit (or attempt to) the president in power. Let’s face it, Trump’s first impeachment was an impeachment looking for a crime, and the only crime Trump committed at that time was that he won the 2016 election. The Democrats couldn’t forgive him for that, so they intended to impeach him on whatever grounds they could muster — even if it meant making something up. This is no way to run a government. Impeaching a president is not supposed to be a stick in a tit-for-tat child’s playground feud. It is a serious thing to impeach a president. The truth is, probably many presidents have done something that could justify impeaching them. Personally, I think Bill Clinton should have been impeached, but not for the Monica Lewinsky fiasco, but for his and Al Gore accepting money from China for their re-election campaign. But that’s water under the bridge. Just because there may be grounds to impeach a president doesn’t mean it has to be done, and in most cases would achieve nothing but further divide the nation along party lines, where party members see each other no longer as simply opponents, but enemies.
Biden has long been known as an influence peddler, and he’s even admitted it on occasion. But our country does not need and cannot afford another impeachment that will only serve to divide us further. Besides, if Biden is impeached and removed from office (which won’t happen, so what’s the point?), we get President Kamala Harris, which likely would be a far worse fate for the country than another two years of Biden trying to force his will on a Republican Congress. For the sake of the country, let’s just not go there.
Be Christ for all. Bring Christ to all. See Christ in all.
