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.

Biden spends $1.65 trillion taxpayer dollars while vacationing in St. Croix

Joe Biden

While vacationing in the island of St. Croix for the holidays, President Joe Biden on Thursday signed into law the massive $1.65 omnibus spending package.

The whopping 4,155 pages was supported by only nine House Republicans and 13 Senate Republicans. Majority of criticism from the GOP includes concerns that the bill was rushed and crammed with wasteful spending by a lame-duck Democratic-dominated Congress. The recourse will punish American families by adding to the national debt and exacerbate inflation.

“Today, I signed the bipartisan omnibus bill, ending a year of historic progress. It’ll invest in medical research, safety, veteran health care, disaster recovery, VAWA funding — and gets crucial assistance to Ukraine,” Biden tweeted. “Looking forward to more in 2023.”

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell “praised the bill on the grounds that it represents a real decrease in discretionary spending. He presented it as a positive that nondefense spending jumped by only 5.5 percent, from $730 billion to $772.5 billion, amid an inflation rate of 7.1 percent” writes National Review.

“The bipartisan government-funding bill that Senators Shelby and Leahy have finished negotiating does exactly the opposite of what the Biden administration first proposed,” he said. “This bill provides a substantial real-dollar increase to the defense baseline . . . and a substantial real-dollar cut to the non-defense, non-veterans baseline,” McConnell insisted as negotiations were wrapping up.

House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, however, stated his strong disapproval of the bill before it even advanced. Affirming a letter from 13 House Republicans, McCarthy demanded the bill is reckless, irresponsible, and a “purposeful refusal to secure and defend our borders.”

For example, it failed to incorporate protections for Title 42, the pandemic policy that allows illegal immigrants to be expelled on a public-health basis, which currently hangs in the balance at the Supreme Court.

National Review adds, “The funding in the bill, which averted a federal government shutdown before the new year, includes an allocation of $45 billion in defense assistance to Ukraine. Some Republican priorities, such as Electoral Count Act reform and a bigger military budget, were nested in with Democratic appropriations, such as increased funding for Medicaid and food stamps.”
