Biden’s opposition to the Oil industry is a HUGE blow to his campaign days before the election

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s admission last Thursday during the Presidential debates that he would end the oil and fracking industry was a disastrous blow to his campaign just days before the election.

He basically told roughly 9.8 million Americans working in the industry that under his administration they may soon be without a job or at least facing termination if a Biden Administration comes to fruition.

Think about it, it’s roughly 5.6 percent of the employed U.S. population and in states that the Democrats need to win against incumbent President Donald Trump. It doesn’t matter that he tried to back track his statements or promise that his administration would look for slow transitions, what mattered is that he finally slipped up and told the truth: the fracking and oil industry are targets of a Biden administration.

As a reminder, here’s the exchange from last Thursday’s debate.

Trump: Would you close down the oil industry?

Biden: I would transition from the oil industry, yes.

Trump: That’s a big statement.

Biden: It is a big statement.  Because the oil industry pollutes, significantly… Because it has to be replaced by renewable energy over time.

This is exactly the plan. Biden’s Vice Presidential running mate California Sen. Kamala Harris is one of the most liberal candidates in U.S. history and like, Biden, is fully supportive of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s insanely liberal and unworkable Green New Deal.

But Biden’s admission that the his administration would be the toughest on the industry was truly a very bad calculation on his part to make public.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany told Fox News Tuesday during an interview that Biden’s statement during last week’s presidential debate was his campaign’s “death knell.”

I believe McEnany is right. Look at what’s happening in Pennsylvania where the fracking industry is a hot topic in the battleground state.

“Last week, sleepy Joe Biden made perhaps the most shocking admission ever uttered in the history of presidential debates. And in other words, he blew it on live television,” Trump told supporters in Allentown. It was his first stop in Pennsylvania on Monday.

Biden attempted to walk back his statements but it was already too little too late.

“I’m not shutting down oil fields, I’m not eliminating fracking. I’m investing in clean energy and I’m going to make sure that we don’t continue to subsidize the oil companies,” Biden said Monday, during a campaign stop in Chester, Pennsylvania.

Well, I think Americans can see right through this double talk. Biden is not just making it clear that he won’t subsidize these companies but he’ll bring back stringent and costly regulations that will lead to job loss.

It’s a vicious cycle and one the American people and our fragile economy can’t afford.

Cuomo says he’ll ‘fully cooperate’ with NY AG’s review of sexual harassment claims

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) said Wednesday that he will “fully cooperate” with the state attorney general’s independent review into sexual harassment allegations made against the currently scandal-ridden governor, saying, “I fully support a woman’s right to come forward.”

Last Wednesday, Lindsey Boylan, who served in his administration for over three years, accused Cuomo of suggesting to her on a 2017 flight that they play strip poker, inappropriate touching, and kissing her on the lips without her consent.

Following Boylan’s accusations, 25-year-old Charlotte Bennett alleged the governor indicated interest in having an affair with her while she was serving in his administration as a health policy adviser. In a Saturday New York Times report, Bennett told the newspaper that Cuomo asked her if she had “ever been with an older man,” adding that “age doesn’t matter” in relationships.

At Wednesday’s press briefing, the Empire State governor addressed the accusations leveled against him over the past seven days by three women and New York Attorney General Letitia James’ (D) independent review into those claims, which she announced on Monday was formally proceeding.

“As you probably know, the attorney general is doing an independent review, and I will fully cooperate with that review,” Cuomo said at the beginning of his statement. “Now, the lawyers say I shouldn’t say anything when you have a pending review until that review is over. I understand that, I’m a lawyer, too. But, I want New Yorkers to hear from me directly on this.”

“First, I fully support a woman’s right to come forward,” the governor began. “And I think it should be encouraged in every way. I now understand that I acted in a way that made people feel uncomfortable. It was unintentional and I truly and deeply apologize for it. I feel awful about it, and frankly I am embarrassed by it, and that’s not easy to say. But that’s the truth.”

This echoes what Cuomo said in a Sunday statement about the allegations, in which he stated he “may have been insensitive” during his tenure but charged his accusers of misinterpreting his actions, saying, “I acknowledge some of the things I have said have been misinterpreted as an unwanted flirtation… I am truly sorry about that.”

During his Wednesday remarks, Cuomo iterated “I never touched anyone inappropriately,” repeated that sentence, then said “I never knew at the time that I was making anyone feel uncomfortable” and repeated that one too.

“And I certainly never, ever meant to offend anyone or hurt anyone or cause anyone any pain. That is the last thing I would ever want to do,” he continued. “I ask the people of this state to wait for the facts from the attorney general’s report before forming an opinion. Get the facts, please, before forming an opinion.”

“I also want you to know that I have learned from what has been an incredibly difficult situation for me as well as other people, and I’ve learned an important lesson,” the governor said at the end of his statement. “I’m sorry. I’m sorry for whatever pain I caused anyone, I never intended it, and I will be the better for this experience.”

Amid Boylan and Bennett’s allegations, another report of Cuomo sexually harassing a woman has cropped up. On Monday, a woman named Anna Ruch accused the governor of placing his hands on her cheeks—without her consent—at a 2019 wedding reception and asking if he could kiss her. A photograph of the two together at the event has also been circulating on social media.

Asked at Wednesday’s briefing about the pictures that have resurfaced of him being touchy with people, particularly that of him and Ruch, the governor claimed that it is his way of greeting people.

“I understand the opinion of—and feelings of—Ms. Ruch,” Cuomo said. “You can find hundreds of pictures of me making the same gesture with hundreds of people—women, children, men, etc. You can go find hundreds of pictures of me kissing people. […] It is my usual and customary way of greeting.”

Moreover, the governor said that his father, former Gov. Mario Cuomo, would do the same thing.

“By the way, it was my father’s way of greeting people,” Cuomo said, explaining, “You’re the governor of the state, you want people to feel comfortable, you want to reach out to them.”

He also mentioned that he kisses and hugs legislators and noted that at an event in Queens the other day he hugged pastors and state assembly members.

Furthermore, the governor said that his intent “doesn’t matter,” saying, “What it matters is if anybody was offended by it.”

“But if they were offended by it, then it was wrong,” he added, going on to say that if they were offended or hurt by it, he apologizes.
