Biden to Poutine: Drill, Vlady, Drill

One of the main goals of the multibillion-dollar Biden economic plan is to force Americans to reduce their production and consumption of fossil fuels. So why is the president now encouraging overseas production by petro-dictators, which in turn will encourage consumption around the world? It’s almost as if the disruption of the US economy has become an end in itself for Washington’s ruling class.

This morning, Biden’s national security adviser Jake Sullivan pleaded with the White House for members of the cartel known as the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, led by Saudi Arabia, as well than a group of non-members like Russia, pump more oil:

In summary, current US policy is for oil from authoritarian human rights abusers like Vladimir Putin to play a larger role in the energy market, while simultaneously asking US taxpayers to spend money. unprecedented amounts to reduce the use of oil in energy markets. Where are all the media collusion theorists in Russia?
