There is no question that the administration is letting oil and gas companies drill according to White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki. Any “suggestion” that they aren’t is “inaccurate.”
So, you dweebs, stop spreading fake news. It’s the fault of the oil companies, but, wait, there’s more. There’s that meeting in October, for example, when the Democrats pressured oil and gas CEOs to dramatically cut production.
Biden in 2020: “No more drilling on federal lands. No more drilling, including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill. Period.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports President Joe Biden’s allies in Congress just months ago pressured oil executives to decrease outputs because of climate change, raising questions about the Democratic Party’s strategy to lower prices for consumers.
In late October, for example, the House Oversight and Reform Committee called in the CEOs of Exxon, BP, Shell, and Chevron to explain what steps they are taking to produce less oil and gas, with Rep. Hank Johnson (D., Ga.) alleging that “the world can’t wait” any longer. At the time, gas prices were hovering around a 10-year high.
“You can draw a direct line from how the Democrats marauded energy production yesterday to the unprecedented pain Americans are feeling at the pump today,” said CounterPoint Strategies president Jim McCarthy, a policy adviser for leading energy companies.
Far-Left California Democrat Ro Khanna, for one, pressured the Shell Oil President to cut back drastically on drilling. He went after the Chevron CEO as well. Then Rep. Robin Kelly (D., Ill.) continued the badgering.
There is so much more that these people in the administration have done to stop oil production. That has been their plan but it’s not polling well so they’re lying. They were literally told to lie.
Ya’ll realize don’t ya that sure the oil companies can drill, long as they follow the “nu” regulations, The regulations imposed that make it so expensive to drill that the oil companies would have to pay more to get the oil than it would ever be worth, even at twice the rate a barrel now sells for. But hey, if you can get $300-400 a barrel, go for it, drill away.
One doesn’t have to twist these democrat socialist arms much to get them to lie, it’s part of their DNA.
That corporate greed? They are all merged with the state.
12.”There are others who warn not only of the threat from without, but of something more insidious, not readily perceived, not always deliberate, something that is happening here at home. What are they pointing to? They are pointing to the steady and remorseless expansion of the socialist State. Now none of us would claim that the majority of socialists are inspired by other than humanitarian and well-meaning ideals. At the same time few would, I think, deny today that they have made a monster that they can’t control. Increasingly, inexorably, the State the socialists have created is becoming more random in the economic and social justice it seeks to dispense, more suffocating in its effect on human aspirations and initiative, more politically selective in its defense of the rights of its citizens, more gargantuan in its appetite—and more disastrously incompetent in its performance. Above all, it poses a growing threat, however unintentional, to the freedom of this country, for there is no freedom where the State totally controls the economy. Personal freedom and economic freedom are indivisible. You can’t have one without the other. You can’t lose one without losing the other.”
What’s the holdup on Wakanda? Get it crackalackin’ Brandon.
I thought that the Ubermensch of the faculty lounge are the ones that we have been waiting for to lift us from our fallen state.
Drilling under Brandon? Bwahahah!
You got what you voted for in muh democracy, comrades.
Get a side hustle or a degree to keep up with the costs of the workers utopia and EBT cards are good as long as the printing presses are running and the stores and banks all get a cut.
Remember this genius Hank Johnson few years years back during one of Congressional hearings was very concerned that heavy military equipment on Guam may tip the island over? This is the kind of IQ many of these Democrat morons have. This is what government racial quota gave us.
