Biden Faces Gas Price Nightmare as OPEC
Agrees Russian Proposal To Cut Oil

Original Article

Posted By: Dreadnought, 10/5/2022 10:59:00 AM

The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) and allied oil producing nations have backed plans to dramatically slash oil supplies in a bitter blow to President Joe Biden. At an OPEC Plus meeting in Vienna, the cartel's Joint Ministerial Monitoring Group recommended oil output is cut by 2 million barrels a day, or around two percent of the global oil supply. Ahead of the meeting, it was reported both Saudi Arabia and Russia were expected to push for reductions of 1 to 2 million barrels per day. The U.S. lobbied extensively against the move, according to CNN, which could cause gas prices to rise ahead of November's midterm elections.

We are the target. Putin has realized that he can't win the war on the ground, must win the psychological war, and get us to stop supporting Ukraine. So, he fights the psychological war to try to get Ukraine all on it's own be making energy his biggest weapon, around the world.

It is their oil, their asset. The world has changed greatly since the days when the US went into these countries and helped develop their oil-producing capabilities. None of them respect us and they recognize our government as a den of thieves that will be happy to steal and abscound with their money at the slightest opportunity, or slap sanctions on them if they do not kiss the American hand. We are our own enemy and we have brought this onto ourselves.

As the Wall Street Journal pointed out at the very end of a Monday front page news article, OPEC has undershot its year to date daily production targets by over 3 million barrels a day. If this is a 2 million barrel a day cut from their stated target goals, this is a pure political theater.

Why “nightmare”? Cutting US oil production regardless of consequences was one of Biden’s first executive actions on his first day in office in 2021. Shouldn’t Biden, Harris and John “Insufferable” Kerry be sending “thank you” notes to OPEC for raising our costs for gasoline, diesel and all the other items that use oil because OPEC is saving the planet. How hypocritical can Democrats be? Overlooked is that Biden is heavily arming Ukraine in order to defeat the Russian invaders, thereby allowing Zelensky to ignore calls for peace talks. Do we really want Vlad Putin and the Russians to be humiliated enough that they turn to nuclear weapons? Don’t underestimate Biden’s ability to much things up.

Joe is keeping his promise to the people who believe in climate change. Of course they are upset about the economy and the cost of everything but somehow they can’t connect the fact that everything is connected to the price of gas. They don’t understand that the alternative energy is only a small percentage. We need gas to survive. Without gas we won’t be alive long enough to experience the horrors of global warming

Joe Biden was a dummy before dementia, now he's just a bigger dummy. You really have to wonder, as our country is being destroyed by Biden and his handlers, when will his delusional wife wake up and expose the real communists who are controlling her sick husband. How does any wife sit there and watch her husband being used as a communist puppet. What a book that would make.

If Russia was being led by a sane person, they would whole-heartedly back Biden and the wannabe communists who support him. If his actions result in a GOP takeover of Congress and another Trump term, he will most likely regret his pushing the production cuts that will immediately raise prices on crude oil, turn up the burner under inflation, and push average citizens away from the criminal enterprise that is the democrat party. Of course, if he uses Biden as an excuse to nuke us, then the price of oil in the US won't matter.

Biden’s Anti-Drilling Policies Have
Cut Oil Supplies as Much as OPEC+ Decision
0 replies
Posted by Dreadnought 10/7/2022 12:35:28 AM Post Reply
President Joe Biden’s anti-drilling policies have cut oil supplies as much as the decision Wednesday by OPEC+ to slash two million barrels of oil production, an analysis by the Committee to Unleash Prosperity shows. If former President Donald Trump’s energy policies would have been continued, American oil production would be four to five times greater than the amount of oil Biden has released from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR). According to the study, Biden’s war on American energy will cost the United States nearly $100 billion in output every year, which translates to between two and three million barrels of oil a day

The Biden administration has produced so many national disasters, from the mishandling of COVID to the calamitous Afghan pullout to the runaway spending that’s led to runaway inflation to the explosion of crime in cities across America, that it’s hard to pick its biggest blunder. But President Biden’s handling of oil production could very well be the worst. Just look at where we are. When Biden took office — not even two years ago — oil and gas were plentiful and cheap. The United States had recently become, thanks to fracking, a net energy exporter for the first time in 50 years. Now Democrats and the media are trying to pretend that presidents

With “no suspected, probable, or confirmed cases” of Ebola having been reported beyond Uganda, the risk in the U.S. is seen as low right now, said a senior administration official who was not authorized to publicly discuss the screening protocols and spoke on condition of anonymity. The official described the screening move as “as an additional precaution.” The screenings will begin rolling out immediately

At least 36 people were slain in the deadliest rampage in the nation's history. The assailant, who was fired earlier this year, took his own life after killing his wife and child at home. Photos taken by first responders showed the school's floor littered with the tiny bodies of children still on their blankets, where they had been taking an afternoon nap.

French author Annie Ernaux has won the Nobel Prize in literature, organizers announced in Stockholm on Thursday. Ernaux, 82, has written a number of celebrated novels, many of which are autobiographical. Her first book, "Les armoires vides," was published in French in 1974, and in English as "Cleaned Out" in 1990. Her fourth work, "La place" (1983) or "A Man's Place" (1992), elevated her to prominence. She was given the prestigious award "for the courage and clinical acuity with which she uncovers the roots, estrangements and collective restraints of personal memory." Ernaux's work is closely inspired by her own life, and contemplates family, class, politics and gender.

You could see this one coming a mile away, and many of us did. When the Supreme Court declared that there is no rational reason to deny the right of two people of the same sex to marry–love is love!–it eliminated the teleological foundation of marriage and the family. If marriage is no longer grounded in the biology of reproduction–it takes two, a man and a woman, to make a child–then the number two is likewise irrational. If George and Ken can be in love, and therefore entitled to marry, then why can’t George, Ken and Susan? The inevitable has happened, as a court in New York
