AMAC Exclusive by: Tammy Bruce

energy

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.

This quote from this article is quite telling & is worth reading a 2nd time. ” 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.”
Set the nation on fire they have indeed done & they are NOT done with us yet…
Over the last ( 14 ) months with the nightmare commencing on day ( 1 ) of JRB’s out of the basement rigged 2020 election that was conveniently allowed to stand with an all out effort by the Democrats, Deep State players, MSM & Big Tech, not forgetting MSM, owned & operated by the Democrat Party & lastly with Foreign Interference, as all of this brings us to this exact moment in time of a very large coordinated effort to defile the American Constitution & by design in an all out effort to turn America into the very thing our Founding Fathers never wanted to see happen…
Our ( 3 ) branches of government are currently divided with particular emphasis on the DOJ & the SCOTUS…
Houston, we have a problem…
Bill… :~)

This doesn’t make since why do we have to wait until November, the whole administration is taken America backwards in stead of forward and should be kicked out of office for this mess that they have created. Biden and his administration has proven to be one big cluster of a mess and incompetents and is taken us back wards in stead of moving forward.

The author stated that she grew up during the Carter administration. I was serving in the military during that time. As I remember, the Carter years weren’t anywhere near as bad as what we have today. I’m NOT saying the Carter years were good…they absolutely were not. However, the DS has taken it to a new level…and that is not good. We need a massive Red wave in November if we are to have any hope of saving this country.

Unfortunately the people who subscribe to AMAC all know this to be true be so it is pretty much preaching to the choir. This message needs to go out to all who voted in this administration. Spread the word to all your liberal friends, neighbors and relatives. It will be a difficult conversation though.

BIden is nothing more than the mouthpiece of the progressive cowards in the backroom pulling his strings. What America sees are negative policies when in fact are they really considered positives by this corrupt admin to transform America into a 3rd rate hell hole? What policies have enhanced America? NOTTA. So apparently this is the plan to weaken America beginning with open borders and our energy source. I guess we can use solar panels to fly our jets? He has placed America in a security risk with this policy on destroying fossil fuel. Over 6,000 items are produced from a derivative of oil. Everyone of those items are going up in price not just at the pump and heating oil but throughout our economy. A pompous, arrogant self serving politicians who could give a rats rear about America or its people!

The Dems keep saying there are plenty of oil leases out there and it’s up to the oil companies to open them up, it’s Peppermint Patti’s favorite line. What they don’t tell you is the leases are only 1 part of it. You have to verify that there is in fact oil, then get approved to start drilling etc… That is where the problems start, the restrictions Biteme imposed by executive order, his first day in office, are the reason no one can drill. This is what the average leftist doesn’t seem to get, they are liars. I only wish every time, Joe, Jen, Jill and co. lie their pants would light on fire.

Biden is a complete disaster and people who did not appreciate Trump’s accomplishment are now! Even though Trump’s accomplishments are appreciated, what I’m hearing from some Conservative voters is that they do not want him to run again for various reasons. I think that is unfortunate. If President Trump decides not to run, there is so much he can do especially with his Truth Social platform. Then the person I want for President is MIKE POMPEO!

The dems have a vision. The great Thomas Sowell descibes it well in his works. This vision is mostly fantasy that they sell to their useful idiot voters. In this fantasy, windmills and solar provide all the energy needed to maintain our current standard of living. 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. The new yorker said that, in its snotty way, white children were killing the planet. So now you face the end without the amazing joy of new life. Will you face facts or double down in your self inflicted bitterness?

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.

Corrupt government, corrupt news media, too many Americans believing their lies and following along like a bunch of lemmings (or sheep). Now here we are, a point that history will show as a pivotal, where we either take our country back from these socialist agenda driven profit mongers, or we become communist. I for one will fight for my country as I have most of my life (retired military). Very sad that there are those that still believe and follow these destructive Democrats. Sad times for America.

People that have worked with Mr. Biden, during his political career in the U.S. government, have stated that he has made the wrong decisions consistently. His decisions so far with the Ukraine
have been astoundingly bad and will continue with the despicable Iran, 10 billion dollar tax payer
money, agreement benefitting Iran and Russia – not America or Israel.

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.

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!
