Energy Secretary: US Will Remain Energy Independent After Coronavirus

Published

on

US Energy Secretary Dan Brouillette assured the public Monday that the country will remain energy independent after the coronavirus pandemic passes, he said during an interview with Fox Business host Stuart Varney on Monday.

“I have to remind you and the viewers we are in fact in a different position than we were just 10 or 15, 20 years ago, certainly. Imagine if this pandemic had happened in 1973 or in 1974 when we were wholly dependent upon nations for the importation of oil,” Brouillette explained.

He added, “The fact that we are able to produce the amounts that we are able to produce today, place the United States of America, place this President at a position of strength in order to bring this deal together.”

The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries member countries reached a deal over the weekend to cut oil production to nearly 10 million barrels per day in response to low demand amid the coronavirus global economic crisis. However, Brouillette said the cutback is “only half the story” siding with President Donald Trump who earlier tweeted that OPEC+ is cutting “20 million barrels a day, not the 10 Million that is generally being reported.”

“There are over 100 countries that produce oil all around the world and what we will see is production declining over the next few months as the world deals with this COVID-19 pandemic. So when you add up all of the production cuts around the world, we’re gonna be much closer to 20 million barrels per day coming off the market, which represents roughly 20 percent of the production just a month or a month and a half ago,” the Secretary said.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
