There seem to be a lot of people on here that can't.
When questioned about things the right is Blaming Biden for that were done before he Became President they can't answer them and a lot of them run away
I noticed a lot of people try to Blame Biden for taking us back to being "Oil dependent " and not a net exporter of oil
They can't admit that the US oil companies shut their wells down back in late spring early summer of 2020 when Trump was in office and if your oil companies can't compete in the world market because two of the largest oil producers have a oil price war. where those countries are almost giving it away you shut our wells down and wait for prices to go back up.
and it was Trump that threatened to stop the Military aid to the Saudi's if they didn't cut their production and RAISE the price of oil.
Yes if you listen to some of these people on here it is all Bidens fault
Have a nice day

You are pointing to things that occurred in different times for different reasons and somehow ignoring the FACTS to support a narrative you prefer.

Can you explain that statement?
it is FACT we went from being oil dependent to being a net major exporter of oil that the right called being oil independent back in 2019 under Trump . is that correct?
and in the spring of 2020 the Saudi's and Russia had their oil price war driving the price of oil down so low they were almost giving it away. correct?
and that is when the US oil industry shut down their wells, that is when we became oil dependent again correct?
and seeing it was back in the spring / early summer of 2020 Biden was NOT President so why do the people on the right keep trying to blame Biden for making us oil dependent again? it was TRUMP that that happened under NOT BIDEN.
so again just what are you talking about ?
it is a FACT the right is trying to blame Biden for making us oil dependent when we became oil dependent under TRUMP

You obviously are missing the basic concept here.

Code wants to blame this on Biden. Facts are not really part of the equation for him. He literally cannot comprehend them.

Him and a lot of people are Blaming Biden for things that happened when TRUMP was in office.
We were already back to being oil dependent before Biden took office they want to try and convince people we were oil independent when he came into office and when he shut down the Keystone XL pipeline that made us oil dependent again.
the thing is they keep saying he shut down a pipeline making it sound like that pipeline was actually delivering oil to refineries and the stupid people on the right don't take time to look things up and find out that that pipeline was only 8% complete and would not be done for several years and it wouldn't be delivering it's first drop of oil till then
there are several things like that that the people on the right aren't out right lying about they just aren't telling people out there the whole story.
Have a nice afternoon

Continuing unfunded stimulus check was wrong & Biden.
Food Stamp like stimulus would have been smarter than money because they are only good for 🇺🇸 food product with
few exceptions such as bananas.

Regarding the request by Trump to reduce the world supply of oil, the oil market was collapsing as nobody was buying oil.

Trump asked that the glut be lessened in order to help restore the price structure and avoid the potential disasters that seemed to be upcoming.

This was a well reasoned, predictive prescription to avoid an industry wide collapse.

This was NOT a part of the drive to become energy independent or not.

Biden's general adherence to the Green's is a political and stupid interference in the natural progression of society as it moves to better and more efficient, cheaper options for energy.

Trump's move in asking OPEC nations to reduce production was purely economic.

well looks like you can't seem to read .
#1 it was the US oil producers that put pressure on Trump to get the Saudi's to cut production because they were shutting down most of their wells because the could not compete with the Saudi's because they were almost giving oil away and there wasn't a place left in the US to store the super cheap oil.
https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?hspart=trp&hsimp=yhs-001&grd=1&type=Y149_F163_202167_111921&p=
remember back then when gas was cheap
the point in time people on the right like to use to compare the price of gas we are paying today to.
and it was Trump that forced them to cut production and RAISE the price of oil so we would be PAYING MORE for gas again and the US oil producers could re-open their wells and start making money again.
BIDEN had NOTHING to do with it.

#2 we were already oil " Independent " before the price war remember that came about back in 2019 and the right was making sure everybody in the US knew it.
and when the price war happened and the US oil producers shut down their wells we became oil DEPENDENT " again and that was back in early 2020 and again TRUMP was President not Biden
and again I was asking a question , why are the people on the right lying and saying it was Biden that took us from Being oil independent to oil Dependent?
when it happened almost a year before he became President.

#3 I will ask you again for the umteenth time just what policy that is still in effect did Biden put into effect that lowered oil supplies and drove up the price of oil so fast.
Been waiting for the answer to that question for a long long time
Have a nice day

The oil producers asked that the oil glut be reduced.

How does that differ from asking that the oil glut be reduced to preserve an industry?

What are you talking about???????
trying to change things again.
POINT IS the people on the right are trying to Blame BIDEN for making us oil "DEPENDENT " again and driving down supplies and driving UP GAS prices , when he had NOTHING to do with it.
Doing things like telling people he is shutting down PIPELINES( like several pipelines ) making it sound like these pipelines were actually delivering oil to a refinery when it was only the XL pipeline project that was only 8% complete and would not deliver it's first drop of oil for several years yet.
as I have said many times before we became oil " independent " under Trump and everybody on the right was celebrating that fact. then the Saudi's and Russia had their oil price war and drove the price down so low our oil producers could not compete and shut down a lot of their wells making US oil " DEPENDENT " again.
and do I have to remind you this all happened in 2019 and 2020 when TRUMP was in office and NOT BIDEN.
now are you going to tell us how the actions Biden took drove down oil supply and prices up so fast?
Here I'll answer that simple question for you seeing you can't seem to answer it . it is NOTHING he did NOTHING that had any effect on oil supplies and prices and so fast.
There were NO " PIPELINES " that were delivering oil to refineries shut down, they have MILLIONS of acres of federal lands already under lease ( were they admitted they had more land leased then they could ever drill on when Biden is President even if he was re-elected. ) and add in all the rest of land they can lease from the land owners ( hundreds and hundreds of Millions of acres ) so that didn't effect it.
and Biden did NOT shut down drilling of new wells and fracking on the already leased lands like people on the right were trying to make it sound like he did

You are not talking to people on the right. Yo are talking to me.

Biden policies are generally against fossil fuels. Trump policies were generally in favor of Fossil Fuels.

Can you at least concede that this is reality?

again tell us just what " OIL POLICY " that Biden put into effect that actually reduced oil production can you please tell us?
He did NOT shut down any pipeline that was actually delivering oil to refineries , in fact the Keystone line 3 came back on line last March and a week or so ago they started construction on a replacement pipeline for line 5 .
so shutting down one pipeline that was only 8% finished the one pipeline that they wanted to run in /over / near/ and through some of the biggest Fresh water Aquifers in the US. Aquifers that Millions of people depend on for their drinking water and if it ever leaked it could have destroy that fresh water supply for years
Then to have another oil line completed and put back on line and another new pipeline started doesn't look too anti oil.
He did not stop drilling in Federal lands that were already leased ( that was another right wing lie )
What he did do was SUSPEND the granting of NEW leases for a period of 6 months and that was over ruled by the courts,
so I ask you again for the hundredth time or so just what pipeline that was actually delivering oil to a refinery did Biden shut down?
Have a nice day

So you cannot even concede that Biden's policies are more GREEN than were Trump's policies?

It's okay to be reasonable.

and that Biden suspending the granting of leases for Federal lands had no effect either.
and the fact he did NOT stop the oil producers from drilling new wells on already leased federal lands
