President Joe Biden’s “no one effs with a Biden” hot mic remark has taken on new meaning amid OPEC’s decision to cut oil production and thus screw him over.
“The president says no one effs with a Biden, but it appears OPEC+ has done just that. The group of oil-producing nations agreeing to cut oil production by 2 million barrels per day, which could make inflation in America worse, while giving Russia a way to minimize the impact of global sanctions,” Fox News’ Peter Doocy reported Wednesday.
OPEC cut oil production despite the president having traveled to the Middle East over the summer to beg OPEC leaders, particularly Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to not agree to cutting oil production.
OPEC likewise cut production despite numerous other efforts by the Biden administration to convince its Middle Eastern peers to bend to its will.
“For the past several days, Biden’s senior-most energy, economic and foreign policy officials were enlisted to lobby their foreign counterparts in Middle Eastern allied countries including Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates to vote against cutting oil production,” CNN reported Tuesday.
“Some of the draft talking points circulated by the White House to the Treasury Department on Monday that were obtained by CNN framed the prospect of a production cut as a ‘total disaster’ and warned that it could be taken as a ‘hostile act.'”
It sounds like the Biden administration essentially threatened its Middle Eastern peers with a good ol “eff around and find out” (FAFO) warning.
But as Doocy noted Wednesday, the threat clearly fell flat, likely because OPEC nations realize that the Biden administration has no teeth.
Correction: It has no teeth when it comes to dealing with other countries. In regard to its own people, on the other hand, it appears to have fangs.
Biden BEGGED OPEC to increase production, and instead they cut it by 2 MILLION barrels. The WORLD is LAUGHING at us!! Why don’t we produce oil IN AMERICA??? We have all the oil & gas we need RIGHT HERE in Texas, we just need a President who’s America First!!

As previously reported, the administration has installed a number of regulatory barriers that have made it so that one must jump through hoops to pursue domestic oil/gas production.
Amid the increasing as prices, domestic energy producers have suggested that maybe, just maybe, the Biden administration should roll back these regulatory barriers so that production can bloom once more like it did under the Trump administration.
OPEC says no, SPR options all but gone…
The WH has one option left and it is the one option they should have never turned away from in the first place – the US based oil and gas industry.
Life comes at you pretty fast….

Just a reminder – amid calls to increase domestic production, the Biden administration has leased fewer acres for oil and gas production on federal lands and waters than any other administration dating back to the end of World War II. https://t.co/LVV41OFaup

But no, the administration has steadfastly refused to bend the knee, choosing instead to double, triple, and quadruple down on its “green” agenda, even if this means seeking oil/gas from other nations, even ones run by dictators.
“The Biden administration is preparing to scale down sanctions on Venezuela’s authoritarian regime to allow Chevron Corp. to resume pumping oil there, paving the way for a potential reopening of U.S. and European markets to oil exports from Venezuela,” The Wall Street Journal reported Wednesday.
The report dropped the same day that the tough guy president was caught on a hot mic saying, “No one f–ks with a Biden.” The foul-mouthed outburst took place while he was touring Florida with Gov. Ron DeSantis in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian.
Yet apparently, everybody effs with a Biden, including OPEC, Saudi Arabia, and now Venezuela.
The fact that the president appears to think otherwise has his critics laughing hard (*Language warning):
I’m laughing at him thinking no one fucks with him.

All this said, what does the president intend to do about rising gas prices? According to reports, he intends to keep desperately siphoning gas/oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
