Joe Biden is living up to Barack Obama’s assessment of Dopey Joe Biden. Obama was overheard quipping that we can always “rely on Joe to f*ck things up.” The latest “thing” was Joe’s devastating admission during last week’s debate that he really hated the oil industry, and his desire to get rid of it.
Biden says as President, “I would transition from the oil industry, yes… because the oil industry pollutes significantly … it has to be replaced by renewable energy over time… I’d stop giving to the oil industry, I’d stop giving them federal subsidies.”
Biden actually went even further than that saying recently, “No more drilling on federal lands. No more drilling, including offshore. No ability for the oil industry to continue to drill, period. Ends!”
Biden’s comments highlight how radical a candidate he has become. He is NOT the centrist he claims to be. He has moved to the extreme left of his party and is now more in line with party members like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders, both of who are public supporters of socialism and extreme climate change policies.
Biden’s comments also show he is not being truthful with voters. He is trying to hide the fact he is a far-left progressive, rather than a Democrat centrist. He hid the fact he wants to end the oil industry from voters his entire campaign because he knows they don’t like radical, job killing changes like that. It’s become obvious Biden has a lot more radical policies he doesn’t want voters to know about before the election, ie court packing, new lockdown measures, socialized medicine, increased taxes, etc.
President Trump struck like a cobra when he heard Biden admit his plans for the oil industry. Viewers from energy industry states like Pennsylvania, Texas, Oklahoma and others wondered, “Did Biden really say that?”
Said the President, “That’s maybe the biggest statement in terms of business … because basically what he said is he is going to destroy the oil industry. Will you remember that, Texas? Will you remember that Pennsylvania, Oklahoma?”
They will, new polls are due out this week and it will surely show a swing away from Biden in not only those states but among still undecided voters.
Joe’s slip was especially devastating to Democrats down ticket. Democrats always hide their plans for progressive socialism beneath a layer of lies and false promises and populist touchy-feely vision statements that hide their real intentions.
Joe’s gaffe ripped the curtain away from the Democrats real plans for America’s future. The problem for Biden is that people whose standard of living and jobs depend on the energy industry to heat their homes and maintain their standard of living know the difference between vision and bullshit.
Clearly on damage control, Biden tried to walk back his faux pas and whined to a CNN friendly interviewer, “Eventually we’re going to have to [get rid of] oil, but we’re not getting rid of fossil fuels. We’re getting rid of the subsidies for fossil fuels, but we’re not getting rid of fossil fuels for a long time. It will not be gone for … probably 2050.”
Way to try to walk back and cover up your plans! Really, Joe’s attempt to clarify his energy and climate plans made him look like a liar. One Rasmussen poll found that 59 percent of those polled believed that Joe will not finish a first term, they believe he is a Trojan Horse for installing Kamala Harris as President. What’s terrifying about that is she’s even more of a progressive liberal than Joe is! She’ll be the one in the driver’s seat, wielding the power of the Executive Order to cripple fossil fuel production. Her first order of busines will probably be to shut down the oil pipelines that President Trump opened to keep the oil flowing to American refineries and ports.
Also, Kamala is the soul sister to radical Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and was the Senate sponsor to the madcap Green New Deal Bill, which would turn America into a hippy commune within ten years.
The Trump Campaign smells blood in the watered-down waffling of Joe Biden and the Democrats. Coronavirus cases are temporarily spiking. Democrats are hoping to ride the pandemic to victory with their cynical charges that President Trump not only is doing nothing, but is the cause of it all.
President Trump after inheriting the negligent incompetence of the Biden and Obama administration has done a lot to drain the swamp and restore order. The pandemic was caused by the folks that lined Joe’s family with thousands of dollars in “consulting” fees—the Chinese.
Oh, and the deal was with China’s largest private energy company, CEFC China Energy Co.
