Biden Attacks Oil Industry Even as He Demands More Production-"We're changing people's lives!"
Frontpagemagazine ^ | Jun 17, 2022 | Joseph Klein
Posted on 6/17/2022, 9:44:40 AM




“I don’t want to hear any more of these lies about reckless spending,” President Joe Biden shouted out in remarks that he delivered to AFL-CIO union members in Philadelphia on June 14th. “We’re changing people’s lives.”

President Biden sure has changed Americans’ lives since he took office. Americans are far worse off today on his watch.

As Republican Senator John Kennedy from Louisiana put it, “Forty-year-high inflation, [baby] formula shortages, and $5 gas are changing lives.”

President Biden promoted his green energy proposals during his AFL-CIO conference remarks. He claimed, for example, that a “tax credit for modernizing the homes…would help finally make America truly energy independent.”

America was already energy independent when former President Donald Trump left office. President Biden’s war on the fossil fuel industry changed all that, helping to bring about record high gasoline prices at the pump. And prices were rising way before Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine.

President Biden’s own fossil fuel energy killing policies have forced him to go hat in hand to the Saudi regime’s dictators and beg them to produce more oil.

After doing everything he could to follow through on his campaign promise that “we're going to end fossil fuels,” President Biden is now blaming the domestic oil industry for not producing enough oil at home.

Abraham Lincoln defined such a hypocrite this way: “The man who murdered his parents, and then pleaded for mercy on the grounds that he was an orphan.”

President Biden sent a letter dated June 14th to several oil companies calling upon them to “ take immediate actions to increase the supply of gasoline, diesel, and other refined product.”

But instead of seeking a mutually agreeable path forward to help relieve the oil product supply crunch, Biden attacked the oil companies once again.

“At a time of war – historically high refinery profit margins being passed directly onto American families are not acceptable,” the president said in his letter. He threatened to use “all reasonable and appropriate Federal Government tools and emergency authorities to increase refinery capacity and output in the near term.”

What "time of war" is President Biden talking about? If the Commander-in-Chief is referring to the war in Ukraine, he needs to be reminded that the United States is not at war in Ukraine - at least not at the present time.

Moreover, the president has done everything in his power since taking office to disincentivize investments to increase oil production in the United States, including investments in refinery infrastructure to expand refinery capacity, output, and transport.

Now President Biden is browbeating oil refinery companies to produce more gasoline and diesel while telling them that they must make less profit in doing so – the hallmark of centralized government planning rather than free enterprise.

President Biden is a globalist at heart who ardently supports the United Nations, including the UN Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Yet President Biden’s demands for more immediate oil production fly in the face of the climate change alarm bells rung just recently by United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres. Secretary General Guterres said that new funding for fossil fuel exploration and production infrastructure is “delusional.”

Oil production and sales of refined products respond to the market forces of supply and demand, from the price of crude oil to the wholesale prices of refined oil products and finally to the retail prices charged at gas stations. It is basic Economics 101.

The Biden administration’s own Department of Energy explained how this works in the context of refining crude oil.

As the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) forecasted on June 10th, the “EIA expects high refinery margins to contribute to increasing fuel production this summer… we forecast that U.S. refinery utilization will be relatively high this summer in response to strong wholesale prices for petroleum products, such as diesel and gasoline, which have increased more than the price of the crude oil used to make them.”

“The price difference between the price of crude oil and the wholesale price of a refined petroleum product reflects the value of refining crude oil,” the EIA went on to explain. “This difference, known as the crack spread, can indicate refining margins and profitability. In response to these high prices, we expect that refinery utilization will reach a monthly average level of 96% twice this summer, near the upper limits of what refiners can consistently maintain.”

It took over a year from the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic for U.S. oil refiners to make a profit. Most oil companies experienced losses of billions of dollars during 2020, when demand plummeted.

Now that demand for gasoline is soaring and oil companies are doing well again, Biden is lashing out. He attacks the profit margins that are incentivizing oil refineries to increase capacity to their upper practical limits.

The American Petroleum Institute (API) sent a letter to President Biden asking him to change the direction of his anti-fossil fuel policies for the good of the country.

“While members of your administration have recently discussed the need for additional supplies to solve the energy crisis,” the letter noted, “your administration has restricted oil and natural gas development, canceled energy infrastructure projects, imposed regulatory uncertainty, and proposed new tax increases on American oil and gas producers competing globally.”

API’s letter outlined a 10-point plan with suggested steps that “we recommend your administration and/or Congress take to help address our current energy challenges by increasing supply and underscoring the connection between energy security and national security.”

The plan would require the Biden administration to reverse course and adopt a more collaborative relationship with the fossil fuel industry that removes regulatory barriers – precisely the opposite of what President Biden campaigned on and has done so far.

For example, API’s plan calls for lifting development restrictions on federal lands and waters. The API plan asks the Biden administration to streamline the National Environmental Policy Act permit review process.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, the API said, should “end permitting obstruction on natural gas projects.”

Instead of choking off the fossil fuel industry’s access to needed capital, the API plan urges the Securities and Exchange Commission to “reconsider its overly burdensome and ineffective climate disclosure proposal.” Also, the API recommends that “the Biden administration should ensure open capital markets where access is based upon individual company merit free from artificial constraints based on government-preferred investment allocations.”

The chances that President Biden will heed this advice are virtually nil. The president is trapped by his own anti-fossil fuel positions that his left-wing Green New Deal activist base demands he continue to pursue to the bitter end.

UNIVERSEUKRAINE WAR Climate Forum: Joe Biden Calls for ‘Transition’ to ‘Zero Emissions’ Cars to Combat High Gas Prices
Breitbart ^ | 06/17/2022 | Charlie Spiering
Posted on 6/17/2022, 9:56:53 AM


President Joe Biden on Friday hosted a climate change forum at the White House, calling for a “transition” to electric vehicles to help reduce America’s dependence on oil.

“Russia’s war is driving up prices of gas, everybody knows that, hurting people in all of our countries,” Biden said.

Flashback – Joe Biden: ‘I Guarantee You We’re Going to End Fossil Fuels’
Breitbart ^ | 06/16/2022 | Wendell Husebo
Posted on 6/16/2022, 7:28:30 PM


Then-candidate Joe Biden said in 2019 that he would “end” the fossil fuel industry in the United States.

“I want you to look at my eyes. I guarantee you, I guarantee you we’re going to end fossil fuels,” he said in New Castle, New Hampshire.

Biden said something similar in 2020 on the Democrat primary debate stage. Biden promised to wage war on the American oil industry by terminating subsidies and drilling feasibility.

“No more subsidies for the fossil fuel industry,” Biden said. “No more drilling, including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period,” Biden said of his energy policies if he won the presidency. “It ends.”

The US Is Depleting Its Strategic Petroleum Reserve Faster Than It Looks (Can do this thru mid-term)
Bloomberg/Wash-Post ^ | 6/17/22 | Javier Blas
Posted on 6/17/2022, 11:36:00 AM


The US has become the world’s oil barrel of last resort, single handedly keeping prices in the energy market from exploding even higher by selling a large chunk of its Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Washington can’t use the reserve forever: it’s a finite stockpile fighting a potentially unlimited flow shortage. More worryingly, the US is depleting its cache a lot faster than it looks.

Last I read the US had 450yrs worth of oil from the know oil fields,
They want to starr pumping some of that out.

Dow is about 1,100 points higher than the then-record high of 29,398 in Feb 2020.

2nd quarter GDP estimate is currently 0.9%.  If it's turns out negative, we're in a recession, and the bloodletting will begin.  Not a good time to retire.

Dow at 29,888. Most recent estimate for 2Q GDP is 0%.  If we're in a recession, it can end as soon as October 1.

"Yet every year, many Americans aged 60 and older experience abuse and neglect.  On World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, we join the international community to raise awareness and help end elder abuse here at home and across the world.

"Elder abuse takes many forms, such as financial, emotional, physical, and sexual harm, including intimate partner violence in later life.  It often comes in the form of neglect, abandonment, or exploitation."

Looks pretty grim for Democrats.

Usual Midterm Indicators Very Unfavorable for Democrats

____

The party of the president typically loses U.S. House seats in midterm elections -- an average of 23 since 1974. However, 2022 is not shaping up to be an average year. Rather, as of May, Gallup finds presidential job approval and three other key national mood indicators well below the historical averages measured in past midterm election years. On their own, those numbers would all predict a greater-than-average loss of seats for the Democratic Party this fall.

Gallup's latest data, from a May 2-22 survey, finds 41% of Americans approving of the job President Joe Biden is doing, 18% approving of the job Congress is doing, 16% satisfied with the way things are going in the U.S., and a 32-percentage-point deficit in positive (14%) versus negative (46%) ratings of current economic conditions. Each of those metrics is at least 10 points lower than the historical average at the time of past midterm elections, and most are on pace to be the worst of such readings.

Biden and Oil: Destroy America in Order to Save It
American Greatness | 19 Jun, 2022 | Victor Davis Hanson
Posted on 6/20/2022, 8:20:46 AM by


Our current oil shortage did not arise from a foreign war or tsunami, but from a deliberate policy to curtail oil production to force a more rapid transition to battery-powered transportation.



Try to follow the Joe Biden energy plan of frantically trying to get his hands on more of something that his own party despises.

During the Democratic primaries, Biden ran on the premise that he would end all fossil fuels during his tenure. In 2019-2020 that bluster seemed easy demagoguery at a time of near-record low gas and diesel prices. The American people shrugged at such utopianism since they often were filling up their cars for less than $50.

Biden’s video clips from the primary campaign now seem surreal, as he tried to out-green Bernie Sanders in boasting about what has now become his own self-created energy disaster.

Biden monotonously promised at rallies, such as they were, that he would cancel pipelines, stop new federal leasing to oil and gas companies, persuade lenders to restrict loans to them, put the Alaska National Wildlife Reserve off limits, and embrace the green new deal. Those were certainly campaign boasts that he has followed up on.

His environmental czar John Kerry has just insulted Americans by lecturing them that there is no need to pump more gas and oil to reduce gas prices that are well over $6 a gallon in many of the Western states. The billionaire Kerry exudes Antoinette disdain for the muscular classes, a hubris that now characterizes the elite rich leadership of the Left in general.

Kerry and his progressive ilk make no effort to disguise that they feel the credentialed such as themselves, the wealthy, and the progressive enjoy the birthright to fly private, to be limousined, and to bounce between multiple energy-hungry mansions. Those compensations are all necessary, to allow them to focus on the divine task of directing and herding the unthinking and blinkered chumps, dregs, crazies and clingers to do what is for their own good—now most recently defined as paying more than $6 a gallon for gas.

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre also reassures the country that there is no reason to pump more oil and gas. Instead, she says, we just need to refine more. At her press conferences, she reads all her answers from prepared notes. But apparently Jean-Pierre’s twenty-something press preppers were oblivious that the United States, thanks to hard-left green opposition, has not built a major refinery since 1976, back when there were 110 million fewer Americans.

Jean-Pierre has no idea why she cannot now and will never in the future answer a question about fossil fuels honestly. She knows that Left for now got what it wanted. Since January 2021 it has all but destroyed the idea of American energy self-sufficiency.

Think of the mindset: the Left for decades deliberately restricts refinery capacity; then when the public demands it increase oil production that it has curtailed, it complains that increased pumping would do no good because—there is not enough refinery capacity. Yet Biden remains shocked that his long-sought victory to make fossil fuels unaffordable is despised by the American people, whose votes he now needs to stay in power.

Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg talks of abortion, racist freeway overpasses, mass transit—almost anything other than strapped commuters on clogged roads watching their livelihoods melt away by staggering fuel and energy costs.

Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm calls “hilarious” any suggestion she might think out of the box to find ways to encourage more energy production. Granholm is right only in that she could not say or do a thing that any CEO or foreign head of state would take seriously.

So, her administration is panicking that its prior arrogance has insulted, enraged, and alienated 60-70 percent of the country. But political reality to such ideologues does not mean that they will pump or refine more oil. We all know they prefer high gas prices and only object to politically damaging steep climbs before midterm or general elections—rather than, say, continuous dollar-a-gallon increases every six months to a year.

So how does Biden square his circle of continuing or accelerating policies that ensure high gas prices while trying desperately to lower fuel prices before elections?

The Biden people have three strategies.

One is denial and a resort to the blame game. Vladimir Putin supposedly caused the American gas crisis. Take away the Ukraine war, and gas would be what it was during the Trump Administration. But that is not even half-true given the fact that gas and diesel prices had already reached $4.60 a gallon in California, for example, before the Russo-Ukrainian war had begun.

No matter. The Biden finger-pointing strategy is a shotgun approach with many targets other than the president’s own deliberate efforts to raise fuel prices. Besides the “Putin price hike,” Biden blasts “greedy” oil companies that are price-gouging Americans.

Perhaps. But if so, why were they not doing that before Biden entered office? Did corporate CEOs love Donald Trump and hate Joe Biden?

Why do some other corporations, for example the Left’s beloved Apple, earn higher profit margins on their sales than do the large oil companies?

OK—if Putin and rapacious CEOs are not to blame for the Biden fuel disaster, then how about “refiners”?

These villains supposedly have all the oil they need, but they strangely refuse to speed up turning crude into gasoline. Again, the Left wants something now that, for political purposes, it had sought to destroy in the past for political purposes.

To learn why there are now supposedly too few refineries, just review clips from the 2020 Democratic primary debates in which a dozen candidates attacked one another for supposedly appeasing the oil companies that were producing too much fossil fuels.

The second Biden strategy is to talk green, but to find ways other than pumping more oil to reduce gas prices before the midterms. Biden has announced that Vladimir Putin is a thug, a killer, and should be removed. But his hostility never stopped him earlier from beseeching Putin to pump more oil that he is now currently selling for nearly two-thirds below market prices to China and India.

Biden has in the recent past blasted the Saudi royal family for its illiberality. Yet now he is begging another former favorite target Mohammed bin Salman to help his administration by driving down the price of American gasoline down before the midterms.

Biden perhaps feels more comfortable similarly supplicating the nightmarish and failed nations of Venezuela and Iran. He is perfectly willing through such appeasement to lose any deterrent leverage over such odious regimes for the short-term gain of avoiding a November electoral disaster.

Yet do Biden and his EPA experts believe that Iran or Russia are better stewards of Mother Earth than are U.S. oil companies subject to the Environmental Protection Agency? In our shared global village do they really believe that a fungible barrel of oil is pumped and refined under greener protocols in Iran or Russia than in Texas or North Dakota?

But this second strategy of having others produce oil that we will not is also doomed for failure. Follow the Biden logic, incoherent as it is:

I, Joe Biden, hate Russia and Saudi Arabia. Some in my government tell me I am supposed to despise Iran and Venezuela. But I want all four nations as a favor to me personally to increase their dirty fossil fuel production that I certainly don’t wish to stoop to do here in my own country—all in order to keep my presidency temporarily viable, by appeasing the gas-guzzling mindless middle class while bowing to my hallowed green base.

That smug incoherence is welcome schadenfreude to all our enemies.

The third Biden strategy has now turned to the strategic petroleum reserve.

When oil was cheap, Trump—to much criticism—tried to top the reserve off with cheap petroleum.

And for the most part, he did.

Now Biden is draining the reserve in order to lower prices for a crisis that he created in large part by reducing U.S. production and eliminating any chances to expand it over his tenure.

Again, consider the twisted logic: the administration does not wish to increase the supply of hated petroleum, but needs more of it. So apparently if nearly 700 million barrels of oil have already been pumped out of the earth and back into four vast underground caverns near the Gulf, then repumping the black goo back out is not the same sin as pumping fresh goo from underground.

The idea of the strategic petroleum reserve grew out of the Arab boycotts of the United States in the early ’70s and the anti-Western power of the OPEC cartel. The reserve was an effort to ensure that foreign entities during crises could not blackmail or leverage the United States for political concessions. It was also designed to offer a temporary buffer in times of natural or manmade crises such as war or devastating earthquakes, fires, or storms.

But Biden’s policies have ensured that bad foreign actors will and can hold the United States over the proverbial oil barrel and receive concessions in the bargain. And our current oil shortage did not arise from a foreign war or tsunami, but from a deliberate policy to curtail oil production to force a more rapid transition to battery-powered transportation and mass transit.

So, Biden is tapping a public reserve to aid his own private political survival, not as a result of a collective assault on U.S. energy independence. In other words, he is putting America at risk to drain a reserve intended for purposes other than his own reelection efforts.

All these unhinged and desperate measures will fail.

So, what will end the Biden-created oil crisis? Only one consideration, and it is a medicine worse than the disease: the Biden-created recession or depression.

That is, Biden’s hyperinflation and ensuing stagflation are already beginning to result in reduced spending, as his printed money runs out and spiraling prices are beginning to exceed even the 2021-22 infusion of new trillions of dollars. No wonder we are currently in an era of negative economic growth.

But given Biden’s discouragement of productive industries, subsidies for labor nonparticipation, quantitative easing, historic low-interest rates, and a growing global recession we are likely to see continued negative economic growth, higher unemployment, and closed businesses.

In other words, 1970s-style stagflation will radically curb consumer demand as the targeted middle class has less to spend, and, of course, drives less. Eventually stagflation will lead to severe recession and ultimately to crashes in current prices.

The Left’s reaction to that national tragedy will be interesting since it seemed to love the COVID lockdown, and not just because the devastating quarantine sparked radical changes in voting laws and an aggrandizement of government power, as well as the end of Donald Trump.

The shelter-in-place mandates bridled the middle class and slowed the economy—and thus gave us desirable reduced carbon emissions.

For the left-wing green ideologue, a recession in the age of oil is as welcome as $7 a gallon gas. Or perhaps economic stagnation of the middle class is more fortuitous, a “never let a crisis go to waste,” since it will mean a general reduction in fossil-fuel energy use well beyond transportation as millions of Americans become inert.

In sum, under the Biden energy logic, we must destroy the American economy in order to save it.

US Secretary of State says he promotes LGBT agenda ‘in every conversation’ with Saudis
Life Site News ^ | Jun 17, 202o | Jack Bingham
Posted on 6/20/2022, 9:28:37


WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken told the press on Thursday that he pushes LGBT “rights” with his Saudi Arabian counterpart “invariably, in every conversation.”

According to Politico, the statement came during the State Department’s first-ever “briefing for LGBTQI reporters,” with Blinken explaining that he has had “real engagement” with Saudi Foreign Minister Faisal bin Farhan Al-Saud when talking about protections for the LGBT community in the Middle Eastern nation.

Despite ardently pro-LGBT U.S. President Joe Biden saying he was going to treat Saudi Arabia like “the pariah they are,” Blinken said the administration is seeking to “recalibrate the relationship,” part of which is advancing the homosexual agenda.

Blinken went on to herald the proliferation of the LGBT agenda across the world, mentioning the “remarkable” turnout of people at pride events in Lithuania, and the successful push by the United States to have homosexual acts decriminalized in Botswana.

According to the State Department, the U.S. government has funded approximately 10,000 LGBT “human rights defenders” through its Global Equality Fund, whose partners include the Royal Bank of Canada, Deloitte, Hilton, and Bloomberg L.P.

CIVIQS Poll: Biden Approval Lowest of Presidency – 32% Overall
JACOB BLISS
19 Jun 2022

President Joe Biden’s approval rating is down to the lowest in his presidency, at only 32 percent approval and 57 percent disapproval, according to the CIVIQS rolling job-approval average as of Saturday.

While 11 percent of survey participants did not approve or disapprove, Biden’s approval rating is underwater in 48 states, including the typically dark blue California and his home state of Delaware. The only two states in which he is above water are Hawaii and Vermont.

Overall, Biden has a net approval of negative 25.

The 32 percent approval rating marks Biden’s worst approval rating since becoming president, down from 33 percent in earlier June and 34 percent in May. Biden’s lowest-ever approval rating was from Quinnipiac polling on June 8, when he was at 33 percent.

Additionally, Biden is underwater with independent respondents — one of the blocs in the country that has become increasingly important to win elections over the years. Only 20 percent of independent respondents say they approve of Biden, while 67 percent disapprove, with 13 percent having no opinion.

Biden State Department Racial Equity Rep Says White Diplomats Like America Too Much

The Biden State Department this month named its first ever special representative for racial equity and justice.

The newly minted envoy, Desirée Cormier Smith, once slammed white diplomats for being overly "protective" of the United States and lacking the "empathy" of their minority counterparts.

Smith, a self-described "Black activist," made the comments in an October 2020 interview. At the time, Smith served as senior policy adviser for Open Society Foundations, the think tank funded by Democratic billionaire donor George Soros. The State Department on Friday announced Smith’s appointment to the post, which was created to "confront systemic racism and injustice around the world." The State Department described Smith as a "racial justice expert with a deep and steadfast commitment to equity and justice for all."

Smith may have to temper her racially charged views in her new role. The State Department prohibits statements that show "hostility toward an individual because of his or her race." Department guidelines also prohibit discriminatory harassment in the form of "racial epithets, ‘jokes,' offensive or derogatory comments, or other verbal or physical conduct based on an individual's race/color."

In an interview with the Black Diplomats podcast, Smith discussed her earlier work as a foreign service officer. She said her white colleagues displayed an "ownership" mentality when awarding visas to foreign applicants. White diplomats, Smith said, "were so protective of the United States, and they didn't want anybody who could sully the image of the United States because it's this perfect shining city on a hill."

"We also come with a certain humility that I would say that a lot of white foreign service officers lack," Smith said of her fellow minority diplomats. "We approached it with so much more empathy."

Smith has spoken openly about her activist role at Foggy Bottom, where she has served as senior adviser in the Bureau of International Organization Affairs.

"Black activists like myself are still working through the United Nations to defend human rights and freedoms for all," Smith wrote in a column for the Grio in March. She said she worked "relentlessly" to elect a critical race theory scholar, Justin Hansford, to the United Nations Permanent Forum of People of African Descent.

Smith is not the only Biden State Department official to come under fire for controversial statements.

Gina Abercrombie-Winstanley, the department’s chief diversity and inclusion officer, complained in a 2020 podcast interview about the "white male-dominated" national security field. She said that as a minority woman, she was "probably better prepared than my male colleagues, certainly my European-American colleagues."

Jalina Porter, who until recently served as deputy spokeswoman at Foggy Bottom, has said the ​​"largest threat to U.S. national security are U.S. cops." Porter left the State Department earlier this month.

Not ‘Putin’s Price Hike’: Fed chair Powell breaks with Biden on inflation

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell on Wednesday broke with President Biden’s repeated attempts to blame Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine for the highest inflation in 40 years. Sen. Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.) elicited the remark from Powell at a committee hearing after laying out the fact that inflation grew higher over the course of 2021.

Hagerty asked Powell, “Given how inflation has escalated over the past 18 months, would you say that the war in Ukraine is the primary driver of inflation in America?”

“No, inflation was high before — certainly before the war in Ukraine broke out,” Powell said.

“I’m glad to hear you say that,” Hagerty replied. “The Biden administration seems to be intent on deflecting blame and as recently as just this past Sunday spread the misinformation that Putin’s invasion of Ukraine is the ‘biggest single driver of inflation.’ I’m glad you agree with me that that is not the truth.”
