President Joe Biden Backtracks – Claims He Hasn’t Shut Down Oil Drilling Fields

President Joe Biden enacted an executive order on his first day in office to shut down the Keystone Pipeline. Since then, he’s shut down numerous oil drilling fields including one on May 12th in Alaska, and is now going back on his own words, claiming it’s not true and that it’s a republican lie.

Rita Panahi of Sky News Australia illustrated just how ridiculous Biden’s comments are, and how he’s seemingly blaming everyone but himself, including mom and pop business owners, claiming they are price gouging when in reality, oil is more expensive, so they have to charge more. It’s not their fault.

“Except the President did shut down fields and continues to do so. As Michael Shellenberger pointed out, Biden killed a refinery on May 14 and killed a one million acre oil & gas lease in Alaska on May 12.”

Viewers commented on the video saying, “These are not normal times indeed when the very person blaming the oil and gas companies did everything he could from day one to kill domestic fuel production and drive up energy costs.”, “We are clearly under attack here in the US, by enemies both within and without the government, exploiting anarchy as an effective weapon. Thanks to our Aussie cousins for recognizing the dire situation in my country, and documenting our fall from a once great nation.”, “It’s amazing how he’s asking people to take financial hits when he’s the guy that caused the problem.” and “You did this Joe, with the stroke of a pen and by telling everyone you were ending fossil fuels forever! If you just did NOTHING, we would be doing just fine!”

While it’s not single-handedly entirely his fault for the rising gas prices, he surely has a lot of control over them, and he has done nothing to help either.
