Video: Energy Industry Heads Call Out Biden Admin’s Misinformation On Record High Prices

“We need some clarity just in the regulatory sense that this administration is behind domestic energy production.”

Energy industry heads have hit back at the Biden administration’s efforts to blame them for rising prices, noting that it is a ‘distraction’ from the reality that Executive actions are really to blame for supply chain issues.

Following Jen Psaki’s embarrassing attempts to deflect the energy crisis onto Russia and American oil companies who she claimed “need to drill more,” American Exploration & Production Council CEO Anne Bradbury urged “That accusation is a complete red herring.” 

She continued, “It’s really a distraction from the fact that this administration has paused leasing on federal lands, something that we’re concerned about and something that we think needs to continue right away.”

Speaking at the CERAWeek energy conference, Bradbury further noted that it takes a long time to explore and develop a federal lands lease, adding that the Biden administration is legally mandated to sell the leases.

“The fact is that industry is producing at a higher level on existing leases on federal lands than in the last 20 years and these leases take many years to explore, to develop and produce on,” Bradbury added.  

“The fact is that industry is producing at a higher level on existing leases on federal lands than in the last 20 years and these leases take many years to explore, to develop and produce on,” Bradbury emphasised.

Watch:

American Petroleum Institute (API) president and CEO Mike Sommers also noted that Psaki’s claims represent “a fundamental misunderstanding as to how this process works.”

“Once you lease land there is a whole process that you have to go through. First you have to actually discover whether actually there is oil and gas in that land. Second of all, you have to get a permit to actually develop that land,” he asserted.

“Right now we actually are developing more leases than we have in two decades so the White House certainly doesn’t have their facts straight on this,” he further responded.

Energy Workforce and Technology Council CEO Leslie Beyer also hit back at Psaki, noting that “some permits are viable and some are not.”

“The moratorium on leasing certainly adds an additional… block to American energy production, so that is the opposite of what we need to be doing right now,” she said, adding “We need to stop the rhetoric that’s anti-fossil fuel and we need some clarity just in the regulatory sense that this administration is behind domestic energy production.”

Meanwhile, Joe Biden twice said Tuesday that Russia is to blame for gas prices being at record highs, even calling it “Putin’s price hike” as he  announced a ban on all imports of Russian oil:

He also again claimed that it isn’t true that his own policies have affected the supply chain:

Biden repeated Psaki’s deflections from yesterday, claiming that “In the United States, 90 percent of onshore oil production takes place on land that isn’t owned by the federal government. And of the remaining 10 percent that occurs on federal land, the oil and gas industry has millions of acres leased. They have 9000 permits to drill now, they could be drilling right now, yesterday, last week, last year. They have 900 to drill onshore that are already approved.”

“So let me be clear, let me be clear, they are not using them for production. Now, that’s their decision. These are the facts. We should be honest about the facts,” he added, again blaming oil companies.

In reality, oil companies are ramping up production in Texas and New Mexico.

Practically everything is to blame for the price hike, except Biden’s own policies of course:

    Videos: Biden Celebrates ‘Inflation Reduction Act’ As Stock Market Tanks Due To Rising Inflation

    It doesn’t get more Orwellian than this

    CNN and other news networks broadcast a split screen of Joe Biden ‘celebrating’ the passage of his ‘Inflation Reduction’ Act while the Dow Jones simultaneously tanked to its lowest point for two years on the news that inflation is still at record highs.

    Watch:

    The Dow Jones fell by over 1,200 points and the S&P 500 fell more than 4% on Tuesday following the August CPI report, which highlighted how inflation rose by 0.1% despite gas prices reducing slightly.

    The inflation rate in August was 8.3% according to the report.

    The report also found that wages are down 2.8% and energy prices surged 15.8%, the biggest rise in four decades.

    Grocery prices are up 13.5% from last year and are at their highest for 43 years.

    Some Americans can’t even afford to buy food and are turning to ‘buy now pay later’ desperation:

    Yet the White House describes this as “welcome moderation”:

    The Press Secretary also claims that the inflation report shows “progress in bringing inflation down.”

    Did someone give her the wrong report?

    No, she’s just flat out lying again:

    German Foreign Minister Says Support For Ukraine Will Continue “No Matter What Voters Think”

    War will be prolonged at the expense of her own citizens.

    Despite soaring energy prices that threaten the stability of the country, Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said she would continue to support Ukraine “no matter what German voters think.”

    Baerbock made the remarkable comments during an event in Prague yesterday organized by the NGO Forum 2000.

    “If I give the promise to people in Ukraine – ‘We stand with you, as long as you need us’ – then I want to deliver. No matter what my German voters think, but I want to deliver to the people of Ukraine,” she said.

    The German official said that such an approach would not change even if large numbers of people were out in the streets protesting against crippling energy bills.

    “We are facing now wintertime, when we will be challenged as democratic politicians. People will go in the street and say ‘We cannot pay our energy prices’. And I will say ‘Yes I know, so we help you with social measures.’ But I don’t want to say ‘Ok then we stop the sanctions against Russia.’ We will stand with Ukraine, and this means the sanctions will stay also in wintertime, even if it gets really tough for politicians,” said Baerbock.

    The comment is a fairly stunning admission that world leaders are intent on prolonging the war for as long as possible, no matter how much it harms the countries they are supposed to represent.

    Germans face one of the worst cost of living crises in Europe, with governments arranging ‘warm up spaces’ in major cities where people who can’t pay their bills will go to avoid freezing to death, with blackouts expected.

    Citizens have already exhausted supplies of electric heaters, firewood and stoves in many areas as they prepare for energy rationing this winter, while inflation in Germany just hit its highest level in almost 50 years.

    Those planning to protest against the situation have also been demonized as domestic extremists by the authorities.

    As we reported last month, the interior minister of the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), Herbert Reul (CDU), outrageously suggested Germans who may be planning to protest against energy blackouts were “enemies of the state” who want to overthrow the government.
