TIPP Insights: Americans support energy independence, while Biden dithers and inflation soars

By Stephen Moore, TIPP Insights

Most Americans – over 60% — continue to support U.S. energy independence, and in fact, they support drilling on federal lands to achieve that goal.

That includes fracking, which came under attack early during then-candidate Joseph Biden’s campaign. Since his first day in office, President Biden has made good on his vow to eliminate domestic energy production or has tried to.

Gas prices have risen dramatically since last year, and all Americans are feeling pain at the pump.

Now, under the crushing weight of rising inflation and gas prices at home and abroad, a majority supports an “all of the above” approach to energy production, which includes oil, gas, wind, solar, and nuclear.

Yet the Biden administration continues to stymy U.S. energy production, trapping America’s rich energy reserves with bureaucratic red tape.

These actions, coupled with unprecedented federal spending, will ultimately bankrupt the country.

The idea that we are going to eliminate fossil fuels is a pipe dream. Nor should we, given the fact that American energy production is the cleanest and safest in the world. Exporting American energy could go a long way toward helping friends and allies in hostile regions in the world.

The truth is, we’re not going to go from 70% fossil fuels down to zero in the next 15 years, or else we will bankrupt our country.

President Biden needs to get with the “program.”

Even electric cars are going to require the use of fossil fuels in generating electricity.

And they are expensive.

At a time of escalating inflation, it is delusional to expect working families to pay $55,000 for an electric vehicle.

Despite their protests to the contrary, Democrats’ short-sighted efforts to strangle the U.S. energy sector is producing 1.2 million fewer barrels a day in oil than it did at peak under the last president.

With oil at $100 a barrel, that’s $120 million in lost U.S. income every day.

It also leaves the U.S. importing from Russia — and other hostile regimes.

Renewed U.S. production will provide good jobs, lower gas prices, and help slow roaring inflation.

Not only should America regain its energy independence, but America should also be the energy-dominant country in the world.

American energy independence is the key to a prosperous U.S. economy, our national security, and to peace and stability around the world.

I make more then $12,000 a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 11 to 12 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it… 🙂 AND GOOD LUCK.:) HERE====)> https://www.fuljobz.com

BEFORE BIDEN WE HAD TRUMP. TRUMP HAD THE US FIRING ON ALL 8. IN COMES BIDEN. TO SPITE TRUMP, MR. BIGSHOT SIGNS AN EXECUTIVE ORDER CUTTING OFF THE LIFEBLOOD OF AMERICA, THE PRODUCTION AND DELIVERY OF OIL VIA OIL AND NG PIPELINES AND AS A FINAL MEASURE RESCINDS THE ALASKA AND GULF OIL LEASES, ALL TO PLEASE HIS HANDLERS AND RE-INFORCE HIS PHONY TOUGH-GUY EGO AT THE EXPENSE OF THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA, BUT MORE SPECIFICALLY HIS DESIGNATED ENEMY, THE CONSERVATIVE-REALIST. SENSING A SHORTAGE OF OIL AND CONSTANT DEMAND, OIL PRICES RISE AND SO DOES GAS AT THE PUMP CAUSING INFLATION. RESULT, LOSS OF HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF JOBS IN THE OIL FIELDS AND OIL SUPPORT COMPANIES LEADING TO AN 8% PLUS INFLATION WITH FURTHER COMMODITY PRICE INCREASES.

TO CURE INFLATION, THE LIBERAL PHILOSOPHER JEROME RAISES INTEREST RATES TO LOWER INFLATION INSTEAD OF RESTARTING OIL PRODUCTION. THE RESULT, THE US OF A, IS HEADED FOR A RECESSION. STOCK MARKET IS TANKING TAKING TRILLILONS OUT OF THE HANDS OF 401 RETIREES. GROCERY STORE SHELVES ARE HALF EMPTY. FOOD HAS DOUBLED. AND WE ARE TO TAKE ANOTHER 3 YEARS OF THIS WITHOUT CONSEQUENCES? TIME IS ALL WE HAVE. CHECK YOUR DEATH CERTIFICATE FOR HOW MUCH. IN MY BUSINESS’ES, INCOMPETENCE WOULD BE OUT THE DOOR IN 24 HOURS. AMERICA IS A BUSINESS. WHAT IT’S NOT, IS AN EXERCISE IN CHILD GROWTH.

CAN WE EVEN WAIT ANOTHER 7 MONTHS IF TIME IS ALL WE HAVE? EVERY GENERATION IS ENTITLED TO ITS OWN PROSPERITY. YOUR ECONOMIC SURVIVAL DEMANDS IT. WE GET ONE SHOT: OUR DESIGNATED TIME FRAME AND ITS ALL OVER. MAKE YOUR VOTE COUNT THIS NOVEMBER AND CUT OFF THE INCOMPETENCE SPIGOT.

I remember o-biden saying “I don’t even know what I am signing. Hahaha” It was his first week in office! That was the sad clue that this guy is a total idiot.

I heard an energy association exec say just a few days ago that even if they ramped up production they don’t have the infrastructure (pipelines) to get it all to refineries and the market. Finish Keystone and build other pipelines. Pipelines are safer and much more efficient at getting oil to where it needs to go!

Drill baby, Drill! Finish the pipelines. Open the market and watch what happens. President Trump already showed us how it should be done. We were INDEPENDENT until sleepy came to illegal office. From riches to rags, OVERNIGHT. They just want to destroy America as soon as they can. Can’t murder babies in the womb, then starve them to DEATH. This cannot continue.
