Biden’s agenda includes a four trillion dollar climate change and infrastructure package that even CNN calls “vastly more ambitious than any in US history.” One of the aggressive steps Biden took early on was to stop oil and gas leases on federal lands. If this bill passes, Biden’s Climate Czar Gina McCarthy and climate hypocrite John Kerry will implement the far-left radical agenda, and the loss of jobs will be huge. The cost of energy will also skyrocket.
“No more drilling on federal lands…no more drilling, including offshore,” Biden stated. “No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period. Ends!” – CANDIDATE JOE BIDEN
One person holds the key swing vote in a narrowly divided Senate. The power that comes with being the one who could sink a bill is enormous, and Senator Joe Manchin knows he’s got it. During an interview on Sunday, Manchin told “Axios on HBO” that he wouldn’t support Biden’s climate change and infrastructure package unless Republicans are included in negotiations. Democrats refused to let Republicans have more of a voice in the coronavirus stimulus bill, and Manchin wants things to change to be more bipartisan this time.
Senator Joe Manchin is a moderate Democrat who is the chairman of the Senate Energy Committee. He also happens to be from coal country, where mining is a way of life for many. Will Manchin vote against the people he represents if he passes this climate bill?
He has voted with Republicans in the past and is promising to hold up this legislation unless Republicans have input:
“I’m not going to do it through reconciliation. I am not going to get on a bill that cuts them out completely before we start trying.” via NY Post.
CNN admits that West Virginia’s Manchin is key to Biden’s climate plan.
Let’s hope Manchin does the right thing and sinks this far-left one-sided job-killing bill.
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON THE GREEN NEW DEAL:
While some believe the Green New Deal’s intentions of “cleaning up the environment” are noble, such a drastic change in oil usage could have long-lasting, harmful effects on the American economy and affordable energy.
Former Vice President Joe Biden made his energy policy clear when he was asked about his ideas on fracking, a controversial form of oil production, which has drastically increased U.S. energy independence amid all of its shortcomings.
“No more drilling on federal lands…no more drilling, including offshore,” Biden stated. “No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period. Ends!”
The Democrat presidential nominee’s running mate, Kamala Harris, co-authored a piece of legislation called the Climate Equity Act with Socialist New York congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, which has been deemed the first step towards implementing a Green New Deal aimed at “having the U.S. reach a net-zero in greenhouse emissions.”
By comparison, the Trump administration has prioritized energy independence as a reason for some deregulation of energy producers, which could eliminate much of the U.S.-Middle East intervention.
The radical Biden-Harris energy agenda would devastate America’s energy independence, increase energy costs, and destroy blue-collar jobs that rely on a thriving energy sector.https://t.co/YeeLqDMqSE

President Trump has made an effort to remove overseas troops in recent years. However, he has met push-back from Congress members on both sides of the aisle who claim he needs to prove somehow; these actions will not hurt the U.S. or international allied interests.
All of these actions come as the president has made the U.S. one of the world’s top oil-producing countries world for the first time since the 1960s. Additionally, over the last four years during the Trump presidency, electric vehicle production in the U.S. has increased by nearly 400-percent, according to OANN.
On this current trend, the U.S. is slated to eliminate the reliance on foreign oil while also propping up businesses that produce energy-efficient technologies that ultimately help the environment.
In contrast, a Biden-Harris administration looks to eliminate all U.S. oil production, in turn, making America completely reliant on countries like Saudi Arabia. This is a strategy that has regularly proven to motivate American intervention in the Middle East.
