If you thought Biden might deal with the ballooning oil crisis by turning to domestic resources, think again.
For starters, the Biden administration apparently can’t bear to wean itself off of Russian oil, despite all the moral outrage that it postures when the media is around.
That said, even for media show, the Biden administration will not go as far as to declare a unilateral ban on Russian oil.
“We have been very clear that we’re considering a possible U.S. oil import ban,” an unnamed Biden official blared, “no decision has been made at this time.”
“No decision has been made at this time” because the Biden administration, as it turns out, has decided to turn to terrorists for oil instead.
That’s right: The Biden administration plans to “punish” Russia by possibly buying oil from its allies, including Iran and Venezuela, allies that also happen to detest the United States.
Even more disturbingly, Biden is willing to essentially let Iran continue its nuclear development program in order to do so.
Unbeknownst to much of the American public, the Biden administration decided it would be a great idea to meet with Iran, China, and Russia, all for the purpose of resuming the nuclear agreement.
Pathetically, it appears that Biden would rather secure cheap gas in time for the midterm elections rather than secure global security by preventing Iran from obtaining a nuclear bomb.
And that level of desperation served as a source of immense delight for Russian diplomat Mikhail Ulyanov, who boasted about how the Iranians were highly aggressive, and successful, in their negotiations with Biden.
“Iranian colleagues are fighting for [their] national interest like lions,” Ulyanov proclaimed, “they fight for every comma, every word, and as a rule, quite successfully.”
So successfully, in fact, that Biden not only undid all the protections Trump installed, but he apparently gave Iran more freebies than Obama.
“I am absolutely sincere in this regard when I say that Iran got much more than it could expect,” Ulyanov continued, “I am absolutely sincere in this regard when I say that Iran got much more than it could expect.”
Part of the reason that Iran got “much more” than expected could be due to the delightful efforts of China, who has openly backed Russia in the Ukraine conflict.
“Our Chinese friends were also very efficient and useful as co-negotiators,” Ulyanov added.
They certainly were. After all, the United States population remains largely unaware of the major league double crossing that has occurred since the invasion commenced.
The Biden administration also decided it would be a great idea to get cozy with Venezuela, another ally of China and Russia, clearly just for cheap oil.
Snotty Psaki, who has become even more condescending and clueless than usual, had a rather snarky, albeit not very smart explanation regarding government officials’ trip to Venezuela, claiming it pertained to “a range of issues, including certainly energy, energy security, but also … the health and welfare of detained U.S. citizens”
Yeah. Because the Biden administration really cares about U.S. citizens trapped overseas, given its behavior in the Taliban.
Jim Carafano, who serves as the vice president of foreign and defense policy studies at The Heritage Foundation, made it rather clear what the Biden administration is doing as well.
“If you’re doing business with the friends of Russia, you’re helping out Russians. It’s that simple,” Carafano declared, “now you have an energy crisis, and your only way to resolve that is to do business with some of the most unsavory countries on Planet Earth who are the biggest human rights abusers.”
Because apparently American energy independence is too much to bear for the Biden administration, who will no doubt begin pushing electric cars on the American public.
Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich also laced into the Biden administration’s “insanity” in permitting Russia to even be present at the negotiation table with Iran.
“The insanity of the Biden Administration in allowing the Russians to be involved in negotiating with Iran at a time when we are trying to isolate Russia is going to lead to an insane deal in which the leading terrorist country in the world is given money by the U.S. in order to be able to pay for terrorism in the U.S.,” Gingrich exclaimed in disbelief.
“You have to wonder where are the Biden people psychologically, in reality?” Gingrich continued, “second, why does Biden want to appeal to Venezuela, which is a communist dictatorship?”
Perhaps because Biden is merely “finishing the job” of Obama, a job that was clearly interrupted by the inconvenient election of Trump.
