Biden Single-Handedly Brings U.S. Energy Independence to a Screeching Halt

AMAC Exclusive by: Tammy Bruce

For the past year, we have watched the Biden administration preside over the destruction of our energy sector, the collapse of our supply chain, and a return of soul-crushing inflation. They have responded with smug grins and patronizing suggestions that buying an electric car will solve our problems.

On that first day when Joe Biden was inaugurated, he signed a series of executive orders reversing virtually every important policy of President Trump. Within a week, Mr. Biden had reversed the policies that made America energy independent and a net exporter of crude and petroleum products.

All of that was deliberately shredded by a man, and the party was embarrassed that Mr. Trump was able to accomplish what the establishment had, and would not. The destruction of American energy production was a fit of pique from an incompetent and malevolent political party determined to punish Americans for daring to support Mr. Trump. Their destruction was wrapped up as faux concern for the climate, an ironic pretext for setting the nation on fire.

With inflation and gas prices, Americans are being reminded what the Carter years were like. We’re getting that disgusting smell of a government tiptoeing through the tulips as we still face empty shelves at the store, and those products they do carry, that we don’t want, are triple the usual price. We’re choosing lesser proteins for the family meal and rationing exactly how much of that protein we can afford to use. It’s now a choice between what food we can feed our children and how much gas we’ll have in the tank for a week.

Responding to the lackadaisical attitude by the White House about inflation and gas prices, GOP Communications Director Nathan Brand tweeted, “The pain at the pump is intentional. Democrats do not care that Americans are paying more for Joe Biden’s gas hike because it’s ultimately in line with their agenda.” We know they never want a good crisis to go to waste!

This explains why the Democrats keep telling you to buy an electric car. These grifters completely miss the point that if you can’t afford $5 a gallon gasoline, you can’t afford a $50,000 electric car.

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm revealed her inner ghoul by telling a “solar summit” that the war in Ukraine “creates a moment,” an “urgent moment” to transition to “clean energy.”

During a Bloomberg interview on November 5th, when asked, “what is the Granholm plan to increase oil production in America,” Granholm laughed. Not a simple Kamala Harris cackle, but a buffoonish guffaw requiring her to throw her head back as though she was Gloria Swanson in “Sunset Blvd.” The only thing missing was the cigarette holder. Her answer? “That is hilarious! Would that I had the magic wand on this.” Said the energy secretary of the United States of America.

Ha ha ha. Seven months prior to Granholm’s embarrassing display, Russia had begun mobilizing what would ultimately be over 120,000 troops at the Ukrainian border. A short 16 weeks after that interview, Russia invaded Ukraine, throwing worldwide energy and economic markets off-kilter.

I grew up during the Carter years. I remember we food-rationed what we could eat each day to make sure what we had in the fridge lasted through the week. My mother relied on a food bank part of the time. And I, a truant, took a job at a car wash which also sold gas, to try to help us make ends meet.

In California, during the Carter-era gas-rationing, you were allowed to get gas on even or odd-numbered days, corresponding with the last number on your license plate. People would line up for miles on their day. Many were desperate enough to get in line even though it wasn’t their day. When a car wash employee would tell them they had to get out of the line, a fight would usually ensue.

So, they hired a kid to go into the line and deliver the bad news to those who were not allowed to get gas on that day. That girl was me. The car wash manager believed that no matter how upset someone got, they wouldn’t punch a little girl in the nose. I was happy he was correct.

My politics, in large part, were shaped from that very early experience of having to walk up to adults, usually men, to tell them they could not get gas. Many broke down weeping. Some tried to negotiate with me, explaining that without gas that day, they wouldn’t be able to get to work and would lose that job.

The goal of asking those people to leave was to forestall violence in general. If we didn’t solve the issue, others in line would do it themselves. I suppose this was the 1970s version of “Karens” with added fisticuffs, but everyone was desperate.

The Democrats have changed a bit since the 1970s—they have become more craven, more duplicitous, and more invested in the nightmare of Marxism. In 1980 I was grateful Ronald Reagan ran for president. Now in the 21st century, as we struggle with constant Democrat schemes and ordeals, I’m grateful Donald Trump has not abandoned his commitment to us and our great nation.

In an interview with Fox Business on the impact of gas prices and inflation, one small business owner summed things up this way: “Small businesses like mine went from being kicked in the teeth by COVID mandates, to held down by the supply chain and job market crisis, and now we’re being lectured by progressive elites that say we should be happy to pay $15 a gallon. The average cost of an electric vehicle is over $56,000, which is $30,000 more than your average compact car. The Biden administration and these Green New Deal initiatives are completely out of touch with reality. As we see one avoidable crisis evolve into another, as business leaders, we ask ourselves: ‘When does all of this end?’” 

It ends in November when we send an undeniable message to the entire establishment that we’re done being thrown into their political wish-fantasy volcanos.

What you have said in the above statement is entirely true. When Trump was in office we were paying anywhere from $1.99-$3.00 a gallon.Yesterday I spent $50- on gas and didn’t get a full tank.WHAT really befuddles my brain is how stupid the majority of the population is,they keep eating this presidents rhetoric without questioning themselves of the polices that he’s shoving down our throats. With that said,if the population doesn’t wake up soon it’s going to get unbearable.Now ,like most of the members of AMAC I’m retired too,and it’s surely hitting my pocket.

I think many duped Americans are finally catching on to the fact that the Biden political family is, at best, a sad corruption of our Constitutional Democracy. And the news media appear to be the most at fault in terms of its function in our Constitutional Democracy. Largely with the cooperation of the majority of news media sources, the Constitutional Democracy is suffering and there seems to be no peaceful way to correct it. Our Nation has suffered greatly with the election of the Biden corruption. God Bless America, and I pray for God’s help and guidance in fixing the problem! To start with we need an honest and true election system as guaranteed in the Constitution (which was proven inadequate in the last POTUS election).

To say Biden caused this is false. He’s really to f…ing stupid, like his brain dead wife and son. I don’t want to be mean but it calls for this. Joe Blow has been a parrot his whole life and sucking off of an already corrupt system. He’s just a tool. Tammy is right. I remember going to Canada across the Peace Bridge to get gas. They had plenty n exchange was good. However it took 2 hrs to do it.

The Biden administration has deliberately brought the U.S. to our knees in order to support a One World Socialist Order, most likely to be controlled by Communist China. The U.S. could easily be an independently free nation if need be.

The sad part of the 1973 ”gas rationing” was that there was no shortage. The California refinery had more crude available than they could refine. The oil companies were diverting tankers to overseas markets. Carter was playing games with the public over OPEC. Similar to the games now being played by the current POTUS regarding his fantasy regarding climate change.

If ‘We The People’ are in control of this country, they why are we standing-by and allowing the Biden administration to destroy our wonderful country? Surely there is a way to act now, rather than wait until election day this November and then 2024? (WE COULD BE IN A NEUCLEAR WAR BY THEN!) What about petitions for recall votes, and organizing massive peaceful demonstrations in Washington DC until Biden and Kamala are gone? Something! We have to so Something! All this talk is not helping. Joe Biden should be arrested and tried for treason. He is at war with the average American! He hates America and is drunk with the power that is allowing drugs and criminals flow freely across our Southern boarder, so the Democratic Cartel will have more criminal voters.

Good for you, Tammy Bruce, for pointing out the Biden Administration’s war on the domestic fossil fuel industry which is actually a war against America working class, poor and middle class ,”Let them buy electric cars!” is the cry of those modern elites who are as ignorant as Marie Antoinette was of the real life concerns of ordinary people. only hope they suffer the dame fate as the ci-devant aristocrats of Versailles–well, without the actual beheadings, of of course!

Ms. Bruce demonstrates in this piece that she has not read or has not understood even the executive summary of the worsening serial IPPC reports. On scanning through the comments, I found no posting that indicated evidence the commenters here have read reliable information or understand the existential nature of climate change. The need for the world, since America is one of the leading fossil fuel producers and the leading economic power, is that we lead the way to independence from fossil fuel energy. The latest IPPC report is that without an immediate strong shift away from fossil fuels, the world will suffer ever worsening consequences of Anthropogenic Global Warming. This could well include, eventually, an Earth uninhabitable by humans and most current species. Snide off-point references and Biden-bashing by the author or most commenters here won’t change these facts.

Malevolent is a too mild term for who and what the democrats have become. Democrat leadership, along with its various insidious voting blocks, including, narcissistic and hedonistic society destroying anti-free speech dark money tech oligarchs, its wholly misguided progressive white privately schooled but in reality woefully ignorant upper class, its army of energy sapping and virtually non-productive unionized government employees and bureaucrats, its various bottom-feeding race-baiting jackbooted thugs such as BLM and Antifa, are viruses that have replicated themselves throughout every major system in our country. This includes inter alia, our woefully underperforming public education system, our paralyzed large “woke” corporations, our propogandist and statist corporate media, and our wholly politicized military/intelligence. Democrats have somehow managed to redefine any system or person that does not accept their moribund and draconian failed policies as a racist. Advocates of any merit system are racist because they insist on facts over feelings. Anyone wishing to discuss whether a radical transformation of the energy sector is feasible, warranted, or otherwise in line with our national security is a climate racist. For democrats all of the following holds true: (1) anyone advocating obtaining the right answers or performing on standardized tests in an educational setting is a racist. (2) our military, which failed to adequately extricate a few thousand citizens and at risk population from Afghanistan is not unprepared militarily, but instead, is doing a fantastic job of teaching our soldiers to be anti-racist; (3) our American justice system which generally works, must be defunded and destroyed rather than improved, because it is inexorably racist; (4) our foreign policy which must promote our national security and national interest is based on colonization, racism and xenophobia; (5) roads and transportation systems designed to promote commerce and movement of goods and people is also racist. Unfortunately, for the rest of us, there is no operation warp speed on the horizon to eradicate the spread and replication of the deadly democrat racist virus, and it will have to be done the old fashioned way by voting and protecting the integrity of the vote, (which by the way is also allegedly racist) come November 2022. Hang in there we can achieve herd immunity!

Very well said. Thank you! (I too experienced that Carter-era series of issues and never thought that we’d EVER allow them to happen again …. but here we are, and even worse). History does repeat itself. The upside is that we prevailed then and, with a strong and collective response, will do so again. I just hope we can hang on that long and that people will actually vote with their eyes open and with the knowledge of those who have so aggressively attacked America’s way of life.

It’s absolute idiocy! Under Trump, our country was producing 13-14 million barrels A DAY! 1-2 million barrels were being exported, that went to paying off our debt. We DID NOT need to pay for and IMPORT any oil or gas from another country. Our country is sitting on 300-400 years of oil and gas that we could use right now. NO it’s not Peeuton’s/Russia’s fault! And this would give us time to fine tune our technology in creating many different other forms of energy. But the woke globalist wealthy elite in our country are trying to FORCE us into one form (monopoly) of energy, solar/wind/electric because that is where they have positioned their MONEY INVESTMENTS in. These Al Gore look a likes stand to reap a virtual billions fortune, just like billionaire Gore, from this. And why isn’t that a MONOPOLY? Which is against anti-trust laws. WE THE PEOPLE ARE THE GOVERNMENT AND SOVEREIGN!

We spent roughly 60 years becoming energy independent again and Biden destroyed it in a matter of days. That independence required not just a lot of exploration on both federal and private land, it requires a technique called hydraulic fracturing, often called “fracking”. Most of our vast petroleum reserves are locked in oil shale and oil sands, no longer in pools of hydrocarbons and it cannot be extracted using conventional pumping methods. No matter what the radicals may claim, fracking is safe and cannot contaminate the water tables simply because the hydrocarbons targeted are many thousands of feet below any water table. What Biden has done will take years to recover. People who think the oil industry can simply turn on a tap and resume the production Biden killed simply know nothing about the business. Expect a minimum of 18 months to begin seeing an improvement if/when Biden’s insane anti-American policies are overturned. Last, the Keystone has nothing to do with us being energy independent. It’s benefit is that we can buy oil from our closest neighbor and ally replacing what we bought from Russia and most of what we are buying from the middle-east plus we can transport it here safely and economically in volume by pipeline rather than by rail or truck. The Keystone needs completed forthwith.

The demonRATs are hypocritical morons. Electric car batteries are NOT re-cyclable. Their ingredients are toxic to nature. Where are they going to hide the refuge… in the elite’s gated communities? Electric cars travel maybe 400 miles until a re-charge is needed… what are the “WOKE” industries like Disney going to do when the only clientele they get only drive from neighboring states? It’s just another plot to limit opportunity to the peons and give more control to the elite.

These people imagine they will be able to stay in their 4000 sq ft houses, drive audis and fly to vacation at will, or to visit their childless kids in ny and chicago. Theyre too cowardly as leftists to ask when the grandkids will appear, grandkids they desperately want. Sorry folks, you stood by fifteen yrs ago while your kids were brainwashed.
