Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin dropped the hammer on President Joe Biden over his failing energy plan. She wrote:
“Why does Biden not want to produce here in America with American workers generating tax revenue for the American economy — where high paying jobs are created for American families and where we have stricter environmental and worker safety standards than anywhere else in the world? “Drill, baby, drill” isn’t just a desire for more oil. It is a call for more of America.
“The only part of America where Biden wants more is in our tax dollars. His response to high energy prices is to run and beg OPEC, the international cartel, for more oil.
“As the former governor of Alaska, I am well versed in energy production and how government regulations and overreach can stifle the industry.
“Biden’s decisions, such as killing the Keystone Pipeline and stopping responsible oil and gas development on federal land, were all deliberate and illegal actions made by an administration that does not understand whatsoever how we produce our energy. Consequences took a few months to kick in, but we’re feeling them now. Drilling has slowed. Exploration has slowed. Investment has been scared away. Devastating ramifications are around the corner.
“America now suffers because two million fewer barrels of oil are being produced every day compared to just one year ago.
“The diminished supply caused the huge spike in prices, which gets compounded across every other sector of the economy, including agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, and job creation in general.
“The American people are practical and rational, and we are growing impatient. Americans innately understand “Drill, baby, drill,” which is why it resonated on the campaign trail in 2008.
“It is why in 2019, we became the world’s largest oil and gas producer, lowering emissions while relegating OPEC to irrelevance.
“We succeeded because we got government out of the way, and the great American system of free markets drilled.
“Drill, baby drill” is a call for less government and more trust in the American people. It’s a call for more America! That spirit was true in 1776 and is true today. The current energy crisis is entirely manmade by the politician currently residing at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
“But I remind myself that we just celebrated Thanksgiving, and so I share a reminder that we should all be grateful that once this administration is gone, America can return to her position as the world’s leader and the most prosperous and voluntarily generous nation on earth, because we’ll again be the world’s largest energy producer,” she wrote.
Commonsense tells us that dumping trillions more dollars into the economy right now (via BBB) will make the inflation crisis worse, and we certainly don’t need 87,000 more IRS agents harassing regular folks. pic.twitter.com/AsPOCVfWDk— Tulsi Gabbard 🌺 (@TulsiGabbard) November 28, 2021
