Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene just posted a video on her Twitter page, absolutely sounding off on the Biden administration’s stance on fossil fuels. She calls out several things in the short clip, including the deteriorating oil and gas industry in America, the looming diesel fuel crisis, the emptying of the SPR, and the reckless pursuit of the Green New Deal.
She starts off by stating, “In Joe Biden’s America, they have destroyed America’s energy independence.” Joe Biden has absolutely wrecked our domestic energy industry.
Under Donald Trump’s presidency, he absolutely unleashed American energy dominance by promoting domestic production. Trump took action to deregulate the oil and gas industry through various measures which led to us being the number one global producer in oil as well as a net exporter of energy for the first time in nearly 70 years.
Unfortunately, we can’t say the same now. From the beginning, Biden promised he would “end fossil fuels” and his policies have matched that promise. This alone is a huge reason why oil production has not caught up to pre-pandemic levels despite the demand skyrocketing. Oil companies have basically said they are “repositioning for the long term”, meaning they are responding to the political disincentive to produce oil.
This alongside of slew of anti-fossil fuel policies from the Biden administration have completely reversed the course of energy dominance once had under Trump’s White House.
In the video, MTG is standing in front of a picture of an oil rig where she says, “This is an actual oil rig, this is where we drill for oil in America. Not in another country, right here in the United States of America. But in Joe Biden’s America, they want to turn the oil and gas off.”
In her tweet, she also alludes to the looming diesel crisis that has resulted from insufficient production of fossil fuels. We now have less than 25 days of oil on hand in our inventory. This is fuel needed to power our industries and, if it dries up, things will get a lot worse. It could possibly drive Bidenflation even higher that it already is because the cost of logistics increases from limited supply of diesel. Even worse, if there is no diesel at all, supply chains could crumble.
The representative also calls out that Joe Biden has been emptying the Strategic Petroleum reserve to where it now stands at a level not seen since 1985. The SPR was designed as a tool to preserve national security in times of legitimate crisis. While we may be in an energy crisis, it could have been easily avoided with sound energy policy.
Now, it feels like the SPR is the “Strategic Midterm Reserve” used to try to lower gas prices as the current administration scrambles to alleviate Bidenflation by any means necessary. Even better, is when Quid Pro Joe commits an impeachable offense begging to Saudi’s to flood the global markets with more oil in exchange for military aid.
MTG sums it up for everyone in her video by stating, “They want us to depend on the Green New Deal to turn our lights on, to be able to heat our homes, cool our homes, provide electricity to many needed industries…..When Republicans are back in charge, we’re going to turn the oil and gas back on.”
Watch the video on her Twitter page below.
In Joe Biden’s America, the oil and gas industry is being destroyed, we are on the verge of a diesel fuel crisis, and our SPR is almost empty because Democrat’s are foolishly forcing us onto the Green New Deal.
