After Biden Shut Down American Energy for 2 Years – House GOP Strikes Back with a Blitz of Energy Bills

What’s Happening:

The moment Joe Biden entered office, he signed orders to shut down American energy. He banned leases for drilling on federal land. He canceled the much-needed Keystone XL pipeline. And he stopped drilling on ANWAR, a vast reserve in Alaska. Those are just the tips of the iceberg of Biden’s war with American energy.

He claims he did this to fight “climate change.” But we know the facts. Biden forced Americans to buy energy from foreign countries. This all appears to be a scheme to help his buddies overseas, including in the Middle East and China. Americans have been suffering from rising energy costs. But finally, House Republicans are taking steps to end Biden’s tyranny.

From Fox News:

House Republicans are preparing to unveil a series of bills designed to increase energy production on federal lands, reduce project permitting delays and strengthen domestic critical mineral supply chains…

“What we’ve seen out of this administration is policies that have locked up both conventional energy sources like oil and gas, as well as blocking mineral production that is required for renewable energy streams,” Rep. Garret Graves, R-La., told Fox News Digital in an interview. “The impact on the consumer has been pushing more people into energy poverty.”

Republicans are reviewing three bills that will restore American energy production. On top of that, these measures will actually help green technology, by freeing mining for minerals needed for most alternative technologies.

Biden has gone out of his way to cripple American industries. He’s even defied Congress by refusing to provide a plan for offshore lease sales, something he was required to do by law. He’s even opposed mining on U.S. soil for minerals needed in the production of solar panels and rechargeable batteries–green tech he claims to support.

Why on earth is Biden doing this? Why would a U.S. president work so hard to shut down American production? Keep in mind, nothing he’s done has stopped other countries from drilling or mining. In fact, that has only increased, since America has been forced to buy energy from them.

From all appearances, Biden seems to be at war with the U.S. economy. He’s shut down major industries and made it much more expensive for American citizens and businesses to thrive. Biden seems more concerned with enriching China and other foreign entities than helping his own people.

Key Takeaways:

  • House Republicans are reviewing bills to restore American energy.
  • The three bills will open up drilling for fossil fuels and mining for alternative energy technology.
  • This comes after Biden’s gone to war with American energy and other industries, crippling the economy.
