Joe Biden has presided over the single largest attack on the American economy in living memory.
He has single-handedly destroyed the American energy sector bringing us to total energy dependence on foreign despots.
But Joe Biden won’t stop putting his foot in his mouth as White House aides scramble to cover for him.
Biden says coal plants aren’t being built because they are unreliable
Joe Biden has shown time and time again his true intentions with the United States energy sector.
He wants to knock everything down in a hope to “Build Back Better.”
Biden’s most recent attack on American energy independence was aimed at coal when campaigning in California.
He said that he recently visited Massachusetts to see “the largest old coal plant in America. Guess what? It cost them too much money.”
Biden claimed to learn that coal plants are too inefficient and that “no one is building new plants because they can’t rely on it, even if they have all the coal guaranteed for the rest of their existence . . . ”
Of course, that’s utter nonsense, as it’s clear that America absolutely does rely on coal.
Coal makes up over 20 percent of our energy and Biden wants to shut it down
In fact, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, coal contributed 22 percent of the power to normal household utilities.
That’s a pretty big chunk of our energy.
Then Biden made a promise that echoed throughout the media, “it’s going to become a wind generation. We’re going to be shutting these plants down all across America . . .”
Joe Manchin quickly responded to Biden’s idea saying that he was “being cavalier” and that the coal miners of West Virginia “literally put their lives on the line to help and power this country.”
He called Biden’s comments “offensive and disgusting” and that “the American people are losing trust in President Biden.”
Though it’s hard to say any American has ever had trust and faith in Biden’s intentions with our energy sector.
After all, when Donald Trump left office, gas prices were hovering around $2 per gallon but have since seen prices as high as $7 in California.
The world faces an energy crisis and White House pretends Biden isn’t going to make it worse
Even worse, the world is facing a global energy crisis.
There are countries telling citizens they have to take cold showers and won’t be able to heat their homes this winter.
Meanwhile Biden is promising to shut down a contributor to over twenty percent of our energy use.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre tried to revise what the President said in a press conference days later.
According to Pierre it must just be “some confusion on that.”
She said that the White House believes “the President’s words . . . were twisted.”
She stammered as she explained, “It was loud and hard to hear, I think, or maybe not exactly what was being said but I currently don’t want to get into punditry from here.”
She assured the reporters that “President Biden knows that the men and women of coal country built this nation and he has spent his Presidency fighting for coal communities . . .”
The problem is that Biden and his administration have spent the entire Presidency trying to radically change our energy sector.
They’re only placating to the globalist environmental derangement as they bow before the green energy gods.
