Sean Hannity railed against President Biden for making foreign oil deals instead of drilling domestically because “we’ve got enough.” During his show Thursday night, Hannity asked “Why would we beg countries and kiss their ass when we don’t need their oil?”

Former Energy Secretary Rick Perry was a guest on the show, also commenting on Biden’s energy strategy. Hannity reported on the Biden administration begging for more foreign oil. National Security Agency Advisor Jake Sullivan sent out a statement on oil Wednesday morning.

“Higher gasoline costs, if left unchecked, risk harming the ongoing global recovery. The price of crude oil has been higher than it was at the end of 2019, before the onset of the pandemic,” Sullivan’s statement said. “While OPEC+ recently agreed to production increases, these increases will not fully offset previous production cuts that OPEC+ imposed during the pandemic until well into 2022. At a critical moment in the global recovery, this is simply not enough.”

However, Hannity’s response to solving the problem of higher gasoline costs lies within the US territory. “The obvious answer is put the keystone pipeline up, get it back up and running,” Hannity said. “Continue drilling.”

Meanwhile, US state officials have given the administration the green light to drill in their home states. “Governor Abbott said, ‘come back to Texas, let us drill again and will produce oil faster than you can use it,'” Hannity said. “Why don’t we go for the obvious answer? Why would we beg countries and kiss their as* when we don’t need their oil? We’ve got enough.”

“I can’t answer it,” Perry responded.

Michigan asks residents to house migrants, enroll children in school and help adults find employment

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
