What Biden Didn’t Tell the American People in his State of the Union Address: Lack of Energy Independence Puts America in a Precarious Position
After delivering a limp and rather pathetic State of the Union speech to Congress, President Joe Biden is facing even further criticism as inflation pushes prices to new heights.
With the possibility of World War Three just on the horizon, after Russia entered Ukraine to “demilitarize” the country – supply chains, oil prices and all things energy are set to get to huge proportions.
Of course, the Biden administration likes to spend it’s time touting green energy like wind and solar – proven to highly unreliable, especially in extreme weather – as the way forward for America because, “climate change.”
An industrial country the size of the United States, needs fossil fuels to power it, there’s no way around that and while sanctions are on Russia, the XL pipeline remains shut down – something that could solve all of America’s energy issues almost immediately.
Former President Donald Trump, understood the importance of energy independence and moved forward with projects to not only increase oil production in the US to reduce costs at the pump, but because it is such a vital ingredient to a thriving industrial nation, he pushed energy independence to strengthen the U.S against what we are seeing now – coming collapse.
Biden has forced America to rely on Russian oil, quite ridiculous when you consider that the only reason he axed the XL pipeline was because it was deemed “dirty,” yet they’re more than happy to buy “dirty” oil from a supposed “evil dictator.”
Supply chains are in a dire situation too, and the Russia-Ukraine conflict is only going to make matters worse in the near future. Ukraine produces a huge amount of grain and wheat and while Russia is being sanctioned, fertilizer that is desperately needed for crops isn’t being manufactured.
During his State of the Union speech, Biden said, “When we use taxpayer dollars to rebuild America – we are going to Buy American: buy American products to support American jobs.”
Buy American – except oil of course.
Biden then went on to say that lowering costs in America is his number one priority, and that he plans to “cut energy costs for families an average of $500 a year by combatting climate change.”
“Let’s provide investments and tax credits to weatherize your homes and businesses to be energy efficient and you get a tax credit.”
As well as apparently fixing everyone’s problems by handing out more cash, Biden announced that Ukraine will be receiving a sizeable sum.
“Together with our allies we are providing support to the Ukrainians in their fight for freedom. Military assistance. Economic assistance. Humanitarian assistance.”
“We are giving more than $1 Billion in direct assistance to Ukraine.”
So, while Americans suffer because of terrible policies that may lead them into the next World War, Biden continues to give away American tax payer money to a country that is well known for its corruption – something Biden knows all too well.
The only way forward for America is to take back it’s energy and manufacturing independence from Russia and China.
Biden boasted that his government would keep manufacturing powerhouse China, in check.
“It [the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill] is going to transform America and put us on a path to win the economic competition of the 21st Century that we face with the rest of the world—particularly with China.”
“As I’ve told Xi Jinping, it is never a good bet to bet against the American people.”
“We’ll create good jobs for millions of Americans, modernizing roads, airports, ports, and waterways all across America.”
But all of these plans are far into the future and infrastructure is no where near able to support anything that Biden promised. So while on the surface these may seem like noble causes, the reality is, it’s probably not going to happen any time soon.
And while Democrats attempt to stagger Americans by fighting the “climate change” boogie man, China burns through more coal, gas and oil than any country in the world. At this current pace, there will unfortunately be no way to catch up.
