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.

Shanghai: China’s Potemkin Village

Following a recent outbreak of COVID-19, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has imposed a month-long draconian lockdown on the residents of Shanghai. The CCP has used the outbreak to persecute its own citizens, including through forced evictions and quarantines, and placing alarms on doors to prevent COVID-19 people from leaving their homes. The harsh measures have resulted in food and healthcare shortages and separation of families.

But of course, we wouldn’t know that by reading the CCP-run press readily available in the United States. Instead of presenting the facts, the CCP engages in a comprehensive propaganda campaign that props up Shanghai as a Chinese Potemkin village. The CCP media asserts that China’s actions in Shanghai are benevolent and wise, while Western criticism is a product of malice. Chinese state-run media also insists that the Shanghai lockdown promotes economic stability in China and the world.

Claim 1: China Has the Best Policy for Combating COVID-19

The CCP media portray the Shanghai lockdown as the best and ideal policy. As cited by a XinhuaNet editorial, “China’s dynamic zero-COVID approach” is “the best option to save lives,” according to a “Rwandan researcher and publisher,” “…a miracle for us to learn,” according to a Kenyan scholar, and “a very ideal response,” according to Ethiopia’s National COVID-19 Response Task Force Coordinator. According to CCP media, Chinese citizens have greeted the Shanghai lockdown warmly, even with “[a] mixed sense of intensity, unity and hopefulness,” according to China Daily.

Claim 2: The West Hypocritically Defames China

The CCP press also accuses the West of lying about the Shanghai lockdown, and using COVID policies for nefarious ends. According to XinhuaNet, “Shanghai…has never imposed what Western media described as a ‘lockdown.’” Other CCP editorials actually accuse the West of malice. One Global Times editorial claims that the lockdown “has been deliberately exaggerated by the West.” Another Global Times editorial asserts that the Western approach of “coexisting with the virus” amounts to a way “…to drive out a large number of the vulnerable people with low immunity,” and a form of “cruel social Darwinism.”

Claim 3: China’s COVID Policies Result in an Economic Windfall to China and the World

The CCP also portrays the lockdown as necessary to achieve great economic growth in China and beyond. One Global Times editorial, while conceding that the lockdown amounted to a “sealing-off,” it is “a temporary measure to better resume work and production and to make the economy and society function more effectively. Its effectiveness has been proven.” According to another Global Times editorial, China’s policy is “widely considered to be the best strategy…to both contain the epidemic and ensure stable economic development.”

In an Orwellian fashion, Chinese press claims that China is solving, not causing, the world’s economic problems. According to XinhuaNet, “China has played a decisive role in stabilizing the global economy and resuming the supply chain disrupted by COVID-19.” Citing a Bloomberg article, the same XinhuaNet editorial claims that China “has prevented a huge number of deaths at home and ensured that everything from iPhones and Teslas to fertilizer and car parts continues to flow to the rest of the world.” Chinese citizens, of course, are collateral damage: Ji Qiwei, vice-general manager of SAIC Motor Passenger Vehicle, stated that “The domestic market may be impacted a little by the COVID-19 outbreak this year, but our export market will continue to see strong growth,” according to China Daily.

While the world continues to suffer economic and human damage as a result of COVID-19, China continues to revise history regarding its role. Through its propaganda in its English publications of Xinhua, China Daily, and Global Times, China seeks to portray itself as a benevolent force in the fight against the virus.
