Alleged hackers from Russia have been plummeting our infrastructure and succeeding. For six days, the colonial pipeline was shut down, paralyzing the southeastern United States. Colonial paid the $5 Million ransom to have it turned back on. This type of attack isn’t uncommon, but when it succeeds, it’s a rare event.
The attack comes only months after Joe Biden signed an Executive Order to shut down the Keystone XL Pipeline. What a jerk! 99% of vehicles run off of gasoline or diesel. The dream of having everyone use electric cars is beginning, but it isn’t a reality as of now. Even when vehicles run off electricity, we all know it’s primarily run electricity derived from coal.
Back to the pipeline! At the G7 Summit, Biden decided it was a great idea to waive sanctions on Russia and allow them to continue building the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline. Biden said that the pipeline could continue because it was mostly finished. The moral compass for a task should never reflect the completion amount, and it should reflect the impact when completed.
Biden is currently being sued for obstructing the Keystone XL Pipeline’s completion. If you can block a President from social media, you should be allowed to sue them.
The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) mission is to “coordinate and unify the petroleum policies of its Member Countries and ensure the stabilization of oil markets to secure an efficient, economic, and regular supply of petroleum to consumers. A consistent income for producers, and a fair return on capital for those investing in the petroleum industry.”
What does Joe Biden owe other countries? Why is it that we are constantly moving away from becoming energy independent? If Joe Biden is so concerned with climate change, why would the U.S. go away from energy independence and force consumers to utilize offshore companies? The Federal Government has some of the most restrictive policies on production in the U.S. It’s been proven that other countries expel a lot of pollution than we do. China has been entirely unchecked, not to mention labor standards.
Biden canceled 11,000 jobs when the Keystone XL Pipeline was shut down. For a President that brags about job creation, it’s a slap in the face to Americans when he also kills jobs at the same time. All this happened during a worldwide pandemic.
Sen. Ted Cruz and Rep. Lauren Boebert have chimed in on this issue. Cruz was saying, “Joe Biden’s energy agenda helps Russia and Iran, not America.”
Robert was saying, “Biden wants OPEC to produce more oil and natural gas production. If Joe cared about good jobs and lowering gas prices, he’d support American energy dominance!”
But thankfully, Biden has saved us $.16 in hot dogs for the 4th of July. Thanks, Joe. We won’t spend all $.16 at one time. Maybe give 10% to the big guy.
Why would it be acceptable to allow Russia to become a greater adversary for energy when Russian citizens actively hacked our stateside pipelines? People were stranded with nowhere to go when the channel was hacked. It’s unlikely that the hacks will stop, but America can buckle up and expect the worse.
Jen Psaki hasn’t helped matters. Psaki stated in a press conference that gas prices were “seasonal fluctuations.” Gas prices in 2020 were at $2.17, which was the lowest national average since 2016. Can you follow the Presidency trend?
When it comes to voting, Americans need to remember who has caused this chaos. Leniency for dictators cannot be tolerated. Yet we see that it is.
