Biden team asks oil industry for help
to tame gas prices

Original Article

Posted By: Come And Take It, 10/14/2021 7:03:53 PM

The White House has been consulting with the oil industry to seek a remedy for rising gasoline prices as surging inflation threatens to tarnish the economic recovery, according to three people familiar with the discussions. The latest outreach to the oil industry is an awkward shift for the Biden administration, which has pledged to move the country away from fossil fuels and has drawn criticism from the industry and Republicans for pausing lease sales of federal land for oil and gas development.


Drooly Joe goes hat in hand to beg for help from the industry he has spent the last 50 years vilifying. GFY, Lunch Bucket.

The Demon-Rats are doing everything they can to destroy the oil and gas industry in this country. And now they want the oil and gas industry to help them recover from the results of their terrible economic policies. Not just "no", but "big freakin' hell no"!!!!!!!!!

What a doofus. Close down a pipeline. Stop our country from being fuel independent and then ask for help to ease the cost of fuel from a country making billions off the US! He’s nuts. Why would a country stop getting as much of our money as they can. I miss PRESIDENT Trump

Obviously Joe has no clue due to his dementia nor do those controlling him due to their ideology and lack of real world survival. Between this and the attempt to foolishly pursue 97% vaccination with treatments that don't work for a virus that is 99% survivable is a fools errand. All mandates in attempts to achieve this nonsense is just that. It's all about power and control. Resist indeed.

What a moron. The market sets the price based on demand (fairly constant, and high) and the supply.....dramatically decreased by Traitor Joe's own actions. Is Joe actually this stupid that he doesn't see that HE is the reason for the price increase? That may be possible, he is very stupid. But certainly, others in his groups of fools knows that the policies that they have put into action are the reason for the price increases. They ALL can't be as stupid as Joe.

It's time for the industry to do some hard nose negotiating. "Open Keystone (or other priority project) and we will talk" As other have pointed out , how many times does the industry have to solve the problem before getting some respect. Congress created the Department of Energy to reduce our dependence on foreign oil and completely failed to do so. US industry came through but the dems sold them out as they always do.

#10, they knew he created this problem, and now need to fool the oil and natural gas industry folks to come back so he can blame them for the high prices the following week. If the Oil and Gas industry was smart, they issue a statement that they can't trust this president. Heard there are only a few hundred wells active compared to almost 800 in the previous administration. Natural gas down to under 100 sites. Wait until those folks in the Northeast start getting those massive heating bills.

Uncle Joe/Govt makes MORE per gallon than the Oil industry does. If He wants to lower prices all he has to do is Lower HIS tax on the stuff. It's isn't like he actually "Needs" the money from it for "Roads" he has a $1.2 TRILLION dollar "Roads" Bill just waiting for his signature...and no one in the way of it getting to his desk, except..."Green NUDE Eel" socialists, that call anyone in "OIL" Devils, Nazi's and humanity's worst enemy...which Joe Biden allows/encourages.

I saw the headline on Fox Business this morning saying WH asks oil companies to reduce costs and thought to myself “Well, duh, why didn’t I think of that.” I spent more than 50 years in oil and gas. We constantly looked for ways to reduce costs. Those yahoo’s are completely out of touch. Maybe we’ll do that while learning to code (I know how to code, too)

Dittos, OP. In addition to the obvious uses for petroleum are the petroleum by-products which are used in almost everything we use, from cosmetics and simple "Vaseline" an ointment useful for many things including as a wound cover, to medical equipment, sports gear, entertainment, art supplies, clothing on and on. I will never forget hearing most of the long list when Rush enlightened us to it. We have a gaggle of pompous arses ruling over us, people with no practical wisdom or understanding. And watch out! they think they can run everything from the center, the old "command-and-control" soviet-style routing which ALWAYS fails. I would rather trust in the invisible hand of a free market economy. Two possible reasons for why the overseers are driving us over the cliff: stupidity, arrogance, ignorance; OR malevolence, sheer evil.

Democrats in the Illinois General Assembly released the proposed new congressional map on Friday, with the lines drawn to yield 14 Democratic and three Republican districts. The current House delegation is made up of 13 Democrats and five Republicans. Illinois lost a seat because of population shifts reflected in the 2020 census. The potential three-seat pickup for Democrats in the Illinois remap could determine whether Democrats, led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, continue to control the House after the 2022 elections. Pelosi at present holds onto the House with a Democrat margin as slim as three votes.
FDA panel endorses booster shot for J&J

U.S. health advisers endorsed a booster of Johnson & Johnson’s COVID-19 vaccine Friday, citing growing worry that Americans who got the single-dose shot aren’t as protected as those given two-dose brands. Advisers to the Food and Drug Administration weighed J&J’s proposal for a flexible booster schedule. The company said the extra dose adds important protection as early as two months after initial vaccination -- but that it might work better if people wait until six months later. The FDA’s advisory panel voted unanimously that the booster should be offered at least two months after immunization but didn’t suggest a firm time.

President Joe Biden publicly conceded Friday that the dollar amount of the proposed $3.5 trillion reconciliation bill was going to shrink during a speech at a child care center in Connecticut. 'We're not going to get $3.5 trillion, we'll get less than that. We're going to get it. And we're going to come back and get the rest,' he said, addressing a room partially filled with Democratic lawmakers. As Biden arrived at the Capitol Child Development Center and hugged children playing outside, he was greeted with 'f*** Joe Biden' from a group of Trump supporters, who also referred to those accompanying the Democratic president as 'traitors.'
Biden to reimplement Trump's Remain in

The Biden administration told the courts late Thursday that it plans to re-implement the Trump-era Remain in Mexico policy in mid-November if it can get buy-in from the neighboring government. The move comes after an initial victory by Texas and Missouri in a suit that argued the Biden administration too hastily withdrew the policy, under which the U.S. transported 70,000 asylum seekers to Mexico to await a determination in their case. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has appealed the case and is working on a memo to rescind the program anew, but it still required to reimplement what was formally termed the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) “in good faith.”

Gov. J.B. Pritzker has been working to change the Health Care Right of Conscience Act, which some have invoked in the fight against COVID-19 vaccine mandates. The 1998 Health Right of Conscience Act bans discrimination because of such persons’ refusal to receive or participate in any way in any particular form of health care services contrary to his or her conscience. Some have said the law allows people to avoid getting the COVID-19 vaccine and evade Pritzker’s executive order mandating vaccination or regularly testing for health care workers, educators and other state employees.

Consumer prices in September increased U.S. inflation to 5.4% compared to a year ago, according to the Labor Department monthly consumer price index report, released Wednesday. The number matches the highest such rate since 2008, amid global supply chain issues. The Consumer Price Index rose 0.4% in September from August, with the costs of new cars, food, gas, and restaurant meals all increasing. The annual increase in the consumer price index matched readings in June and July as the highest in 13 years, the department's Bureau of Labor Statistics also reported.

Three years ago, the only people who’d ever heard of Pete Buttigieg were likely to be residents of South Bend, Ind., the town of 103,000 people where he served as mayor. South Bend is home to Notre Dame University. It has a bus station with a fleet of 60 buses, a small train station and a small regional airport. So, who better for Team Biden to nominate as secretary of the Department of Transportation, which employs more than 58,000 employees – more than half the population of South Bend – and has a budget of $87 billion?

"Research obtained by a group of scientists shows the COVID vaccine spike protein can travel from the injection site and accumulate in organs and tissues including the spleen, bone marrow, the liver, adrenal glands and in 'quite high concentrations' in the ovaries." This is what Dr. Robert Malone, inventor of the mRNA technology warned about. The spike proteins are not staying at the injection site and they are dangerous. Protein in the blood can be very dangerous. A Canadian cancer vaccine researcher said last week, “We made a big mistake. We didn’t realize it until now,” said Byram Bridle, a viral immunologist and associate professor at University of Guelph, Ontario.
