As Biden Welcomes Venezuela Oil, He Prepares To Block All US Offshore Drilling

Yesterday afternoon – after reports that the Biden admin would ease sanctions if Venezuela would pleeeeease pump more oil, @BradHuston succinctly opined on Twitter:

“So basically Biden is saying that domestic producers are more evil than Venezuela’s Nicholas Maduro.”

This morning, it appears the Biden administration is doubling down on that as Fox Business reports that the Biden administration is nearing a decision on the future of federal offshore fossil fuel drilling and hasn’t ruled out a complete block on new leases.

On Thursday, the 90-day comment period for the Department of the Interior’s (DOI) proposed five-year offshore leasing plan ended, paving the way for the agency to issue a final decision.

In July, the DOI unveiled the plan which gutted a Trump administration proposal, ruling out any leasing in the Atlantic or Pacific and opening the door to an unprecedented scenario where no lease sales would be held through 2028.

In her statement announcing the proposal on July 1, Interior Secretary Deb Haaland reaffirmed her and President Biden’s “commitment to transition to a clean energy economy.”

Promises made, promises kept… elections have consequences America…

Obiden is paying homage to all his hero’s, Maduro is one of his comrades in arms. Just as Maduro has done to his country, starvation is coming to the communist states of America. When your children are asking you for food, what will you tell them?
