(Rallying Patriots) – Democrats never waste an opportunity. Their obsession with “clean” energy is at the forefront of nearly every major crisis facing the US over the course of the last year.
Hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens are pouring into our country every month via the broken and dysfunctional southern border and instead of stopping it, Kamala Harris declared we need to address the “root cause” which, of course, is climate change.
Good paying, blue-collar jobs were done away with when Biden squashed the Keystone Pipeline in the name of “clean energy.” The skyrocketing gas prices are no coincidence either. It’s all a big push to get the American people to beg for the “Green New Deal,” at least the ones who can’t think for themselves that is.
Now the Russian invasion of Ukraine has only given the Biden regime another opportunity to push their demented clean energy agenda.
Biden has hatched a grand plan to stop Putin in his tracks. He has proclaimed that all the US has to do to beat Russia is to have everyone buy $56,000 electric cars which just so happens to bode well for the left’s green obsession.
On Tuesday, the Biden regime banned imports of Russian oil into the US with Biden claiming he is “targeting the main artery of Russia’s economy.”
“Russian oil will no longer be acceptable at US ports and the American people will deal another powerful blow to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s war machine,” Biden added, according to the New York Post.
In reality, the only ones being dealt a blow will be the American people who are already struggling with a national average gas price of $4.17 as of March 8, which is the highest price in US history.
According to Gasbuddy, the price per gallon has gone up a staggering 49.1 cents in just one week.
Pretty incredible that the first order of business for the Biden regime was to wage a war on America’s energy producers and force us to be dependent on foreign oil, after having achieved energy independence under Trump.
The regime is refusing to tap into our own domestic resources and now the cost of importing foreign energy is soaring. What exactly has been built back better?
Then, in typical fashion, Biden insisted that he isn’t trying to destroy America’s energy industry despite OBVIOUSLY trying to destroy America’s energy industry.
“It’s simply not true that my administration or policies are holding back domestic energy production, that’s simply not true,” Biden insisted.
“We’re approaching record levels of oil and gas production in the United States and we’re on track to set a record for production next year … The oil and gas industry has millions of acres leased. They have 9,000 permits to drill now. They could be drilling right now, yesterday, last week, last year,” he added.
Then, after spewing bold-faced lies, he attempted to make the oil companies his scapegoat and blamed their “greed” for Americans’ woes at the gas pumps, saying there is “no excuse to exercise excessive price increases or padding profits or any kind of effort to exploit the situation.”
Ironically, Biden then went on to do some “exploiting” of his own as he used the current energy crisis and the Russia-Ukraine conflict to push his “clean” energy agenda.
“Transforming our economy to run on electric vehicles powered by clean energy — with tax credits to help American families winterize their homes and use less energy — that will help and if we can and we do what we can, it will mean that no one has to worry about price of gas pump in the future,” Biden insisted.
“That will mean tyrants like Putin won’t be able to use fossil fuels as weapons against other nations and it will make America a world leader in manufacturing and exporting clean energy technologies of the future, to countries all around the world,” he said.
Biden lives in a fantasy world. The power grid in the US is nowhere near ready or capable of handling everyone suddenly switching over to electric cars. Don’t expect Biden to mention that, ever.
His handlers just tell him what to say and when to say it no matter how irrational and absurd it is. Biden can get away with it because he’s an elderly man who suffers from dementia.
Aside from the fact that the US is just not capable of switching to electric just that easily, his claim that us doing so would stop “tyrants” from having an income stream is patently false.
As The Western Journal points out, “one of the world’s most oppressive tyrannies is China and China will be the country to benefit most by a switch to electric vehicles. That is because China is one of the largest providers of many of the important components of EV batteries and engine materials, including the lithium-ion batteries that power EVs.”
To top it all off, Biden is claiming to shut down Putin by turning off his income from Russian oil exports, yet in the very same week was sending envoys to Venezuelan tyrant Nicolás Maduro imploring him to sell the US more oil.
Biden is just trading one “tyrant” for another and trying to appear tough to the American people and the world even though everyone knows he’s just a clown.
On top of the power grid in the US being nowhere near able to handle everyone charging EV’s, and aside from Biden’s failed attempt to be tough on the “tyrants” of the world, EVs would not be saving Americans any money and would, in fact, be even more costly.
The Western Journal:
…Their large battery packs are one of the worst features of long-term EV care. These battery packs only last between ten and 20 years, and the cost to replace them is sky-high. Depending on the model, EV battery packs cost between $5,000 and $20,000, meaning owners could have up to a $20,000 repair in only ten years — that’s almost one-third of the initial cost of the car.
The initial cost of an EV is also much higher than the average gas-powered car. Electric vehicles average $56,000 from the showroom floor, far higher than the average $30,00 that Americans shell out for new cars today, according to LendingTree statistics.
Imagine buying a used EV one day for $25,000 only to have to replace its battery pack for another $20,000.
Not to mention the fact that new studies are coming out exposing the truth that EVs are actually more harmful and do more damage to the environment than gas-powered vehicles.

We have to treat climate change like the existential threat it is. As president, I will:
– End subsidies for fossil fuel corporations
– Ban new drilling on federal lands & waters
– Hold oil executives accountable
– Rally the world to raise the commitments of the Paris Agreement

The Democrat’s push to transition to “clean” energy is a farce and certainly not a solution for Americans struggling to make ends meet in Biden’s failing economy.
The only solution is to restore energy independence like we had under President Trump.
