On Tuesday, the International Energy Agency (IEA) held an emergency meeting to respond to Russia’s advancement in its invasion of Ukraine. U.S. Secretary of Energy Jennifer M. Granholm released a statement following the meeting:

“Today, I chaired an emergency ministerial meeting of the International Energy Agency (IEA) – founded 50 years ago by the U.S. and other allies – where the United States and 30 other member countries, supported by the European Commission, agreed to collectively release an initial 60 million barrels of oil from strategic petroleum reserves. This decision reflects our common commitment to address significant market and supply disruptions related to President Putin’s war on Ukraine.”

The statement continued that “President Biden authorized me to make an initial commitment on behalf of the United States of 30 million barrels of oil to be released from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. We stand prepared to take additional measures if conditions warrant.”

“We will continue advancing ongoing efforts to accelerate Europe’s diversification of energy supplies away from Russia and to secure the world from Putin’s attempts to weaponize energy supplies.”

Instead of any admittance that the United States is energy dependent on foreign oil, Granholm touted the Biden administration’s obsessive push for electric energy. The statement reads:

“The United States believes that investing in clean energy is the best way to reduce domestic and international dependence on Russian oil and gas. Clean energy technologies are available and cost-effective today and offer the surest path towards a world where energy supply cannot be used as a means of political coercion or a threat to national security, and where families and businesses are protected from volatile prices and markets. Accordingly, we continue to support ambitious international clean energy goals and near-term action, including strong domestic climate action, and the pursuit of a net-zero emissions economy by 2050.”

    Appeasing foreign interests ahead of domestic needs, is the hidden outcome and the net value is killing the US economy, placing the largest burden on the working class.

    Does this seem stupid to anyone else? We have a national petroleum reserve for emergencies. The world is proposing to release 60 million barrels of petroleum to stop the price increases. How much is 60 million barrels equal to in world usage? Probable a day maybe two?? There is enough oil/ natural gas in the ground to leave Putin high and dry. Yet we refuse to use it because of climate change yet no one can define what climate change really is. They say the world is getting hot! Maybe the world is returning to the temperatures of a few hundred thousands of years ago. Over the past few thousands of years we could have been in a climate change and the world got cooler. Now it is just returning to the original temperatures that are hotter than we are used to. Use the damn oil that is in the ground! Quit screwing around!!!

Israel Defense Forces say coalition successfully intercepted over 99 percent of Iranian drones, missiles

Iran nuclear weapons program

The U.S., U.K, France, and Jordan came together with Israel to intercept the onslaught of Iranian drones targeting Israel, according to multiple reports.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu responded defiantly, saying his country is “strong” and prepared to defend itself from any threat.

“Our defense systems are deployed, and we are prepared for any scenario, both in defense and offense. The State of Israel is strong, the IDF is strong, the public is strong,” Netanyahu said.

“We appreciate the US for standing by Israel’s side as well as the support of the UK, France and many other countries,” he continued.

“I established a clear principle — whoever hurts us, we will hurt them. We will defend ourselves from any threat and we will do so calmly and with determination.”

In conjunction with the attack, Iran’s supreme leader Ali Khamenei launched a tirade against Israel on Saturday and blamed the Jewish state for the recent attack on an Iranian compound in Damascus, Syria.

“The malicious regime has made a wrong move in this case. It should be punished and it will be punished,” he said of Israel.

National Review reports:

Iran typically targets Israel through its network of well-resourced regional proxies such as Hamas and Hezbollah. Israel continues to fights its war against Hamas sparked by the terrorist group’s mass civilian slaughter and rape on October 7.

Hamas rejected another temporary cease-fire proposal after negotiations began in Cairo, Egypt last weekend between U.S., Qatari, and Egyptian officials. The cease-fire proposal would have seen Israel exchange hundreds of Gazan prisoners for dozens of the hostages held in captivity by Hamas.

As for injuries, a seven-year-old girl suffered severe injuries from shrapnel that fell directly onto her home. She was rushed to the hospital and underwent emergency surgery for a head wound. An estimated 31 people in total were treated for stress and minor injuries.
