On October 19, in the heat of an election campaign, President Biden told the American people, “We need to increase oil production.” He went on to say, “My administration has not stopped or slowed U.S. oil production.” It was a disingenuous statement from a man whose sense of reality, fact, and fiction have become an undecipherable narrative. Biden failed to mention the executive order he issued which stipulates, “the Secretary of the Interior shall pause new oil and natural gas leases on public lands or in offshore waters.” This pause is ongoing. Biden uses the same executive order as an instruction to the secretaries of State, Treasury, Energy, Defense, and Homeland Security, “to organize and deploy the full capacity of its agencies to combat the climate crisis.”

Millions of Americans are employed by businesses supporting the fossil-fuel industry. Others choose to invest in fossil-fuel businesses. All Americans rely on fossil fuels to power their businesses, transportation systems, and utilities. Democrats will destroy these people’s jobs, and capital, and imperil the U.S. economy. The Biden administration decreed that “we must combat the climate crisis with a bold, progressive action that combines the full capacity of the Federal Government with efforts from every corner of our Nation, every level of government, and every sector of our economy.” By executive order, Biden has weaponized the federal bureaucracy to destroy the fossil-fuel industry.
