With gas prices at record highs, Biden CANCELS gas lease

“We did it, Joe” memes of Vice President Kamala Harris and Joe Biden are popping up all over social media alongside individuals photographs of the horrendously high prices they have to pay at the gas pump to fill their cars.

Biden has no intention of fixing it, as proven by the administration’s recent decision to actually cancel an oil and gas lease win the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska’s Cook Inlet.

This is nothing short of purposeful destruction of America. The Interior Department told The New York Post that the Cook Inlet lease sale would not move forward because of a “lack of industry interest in leasing in the area.”

In the Gulf of Mexico, the department canceled two lease sales, citing “conflicting court rulings that impacted work on these proposed sales.”

The timing is outrageous, considering “as of Thursday morning, the national average price of a gallon of regular gas stood at $4.418, according to AAA — the highest on record and $1.41 higher than at this time last year.”

Additionally, the scenario also displays just how much federal judges tend to completely disagree with his actions. “Biden imposed a moratorium on the sale of new leases one week after his inauguration, but the order was later blocked by a Louisiana federal judge who granted a preliminary injunction to 13 states that claimed they would suffer ‘irreparable injury’ from the White House move” writes The Post.

At least federal judges are watching out to keep our country afloat, let along thriving, considering our own President and Vice President will not.

Republicans and energy industry representatives are fuming over the decision. “Yesterday, Americans paid the highest price for gasoline in history,” tweeted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.). “At the same time Biden just canceled our largest pending American oil & gas lease sale.”

“Gas prices are at a record high, and Biden just canceled oil and gas leases in Alaska and the Gulf,” added Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.). “Joe Biden is directly responsible for the high cost of gas.”

“It’s almost like the Biden administration WANTS gas prices to go higher” said Pennsylvania US Senate GOP candidate Carla Sands

“The President has spoken about the need for additional supplies in the market, but his administration has failed to take action to match that rhetoric,” Frank Macchairola of the American Petroleum Institute told CBS News, calling the cancellations “another example of the administration’s lack of commitment to oil and gas development in the US.”

“In the kind of price environment that we’re seeing, there are negative consequences to shutting off oil and gas development, both politically and practically,” he added.

If the administration had moved forward with the Alaskan lease, it would have covered more than 1 million acres, according to The Hill.

    DEMON RATS like their bread with a LOT OF BUTTER!
    On both side, if possible! There are 2 back pockets on their pants, and skirts and handbags are wide open all the time!
    So, bring on the restrictions for the People while the entitled lawmakers of the left are still cashing in on the “””perks””” of the position, and their salaries, and their per diem, and their “””opportunities”””.
    Isn’t communism great?

    I am sure Xi wakes up every morning laughing at the antics of Obama’s puppet.

    He does not have to worry about fuel & probably has daily numbers on the reduction in our strategic reserves.

    Look out Taiwan.

    The controlling forces are doing whatever is possible to incentivize switching to electric vehicles by increasing the cost of petrol . . . But, are there any viable plans to generate a sufficient amount of electric power needed for the electric vehicles ?

    ““It’s almost like the Biden administration WANTS gas prices to go higher” said Pennsylvania US Senate GOP candidate Carla Sands.”
    Almost! It’s not almost like that, it’s exactly like that. Does anyone actually believe any administration could possibly make the wrong decisions in every single case where our country’s future is being decimated by the result? Nobody could be this wrong all the time! Face it, the Biden Administration is a Trojan horse being used to bring down the United States as soon as possible.

    Thanks for confirming you know absolutely nothing about oil prices.

    Oil companies have a backlog of leases. The SOONEST this could have anything to do with gas prices is 7 or 8 years from now.

    U.S. oil production is way up over 2020 and expected to set a record in 2023.

    The lease cancellations will have no impact on gas prices for years. Your claim is egregiously wrong.

Growing IRS is Biggest Police State Expansion in History

Published

The Democrats’ new reconciliation bill is “going to be the largest expansion of the domestic police state in American history” reports The Federalist. The Federal Government “already collects $4.1 trillion every year—or $12,300 for every citizen” yet believes it “needs 80 new battalions of new IRS cops.”

The job posting itself listed prerequisites for agents who can “Carry a firearm and be willing to use deadly force, if necessary.” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre promised that the IRS wouldn’t engage in new audits of anyone making under $400,000, an attempt at saying, essentially, the middle class is ‘safe.’

Connecticut’s Chris Murphy also said that the bill was passed to stop an “epidemic of tax cheating amongst the millionaires and billionaires” and promised that “audit rates won’t increase for anyone making under $400K.”

“This is a lie” adds The Federalist. “Nothing in the bill that Democrats passed through the Senate limits audits. Murphy, along with every other Democrat in the Senate, voted against a Republican amendment that would have prevented new agents from auditing individuals and small businesses with less than $400,000 of taxable income.”

The IRS doesn’t simply collect taxes, it also enforces speech codes. The Federalist reminds readers:

This is what empowered Lois Lerner to target conservatives groups – “crazies and “a—holes” — who used words like “Tea Party” or “patriots” in their names. But, even at the time, leftists at The New York Times editorial board praised the IRS for going after conservative groups because they did not “primarily” engage in “social welfare,” and so did not deserve an exemption under Section 501(c)(4) of the tax code. Has anything in the evolution of the Democratic Party given you confidence that such power would not be abused or that an engorged IRS would be immune from political pressure?

Wrestling with a insanely complex tax code — nearly 8 million words — costs Americans billions every year. Rather than flattening and simplifying this astonishingly convoluted code, which not only would have saved citizens but the government money, Democrats decided we needed up to another 87,000 people to enforce it.
