Amid Sky High Prices Emperor Joe Plans ‘Aggressive’ Crackdown Using Executive Orders To Crush Oil

Get ready for another attempt at COVID-style regulation. Biden is tired of taking a beating over gas prices and has promised “aggressive” executive action to push his radical agenda.

President Joe Biden bragged to donors that he is going to use executive powers to act on climate change despite soaring energy prices.

“The climate crisis is the existential threat. That’s not hyperbole; it’s a fact,” Biden said.

“Second thing: I’m going to continue to take executive actions where I can.  The Court has overruled me a couple of times.  But we created a climate office in the White House to carry out the whole-of-government effort to deal with climate. I’ve signed executive orders ranging from the most ambitious fuel economy standards for cars and trucks to taking on super-polluting hydrofluorocarbons.  And we’re going to continue to be aggressive on the executive front as well,” Biden added.

Biden said that the crisis in Ukraine proves that the United States needs to stop using fossil fuels.

“Imagine where we’d be right now if, in fact, Europe was in fact energy free of fossil fuels and we were in a situation where it was all renewables,” he said. “It’d be a different world.”

Democrats in the House are demanding that Biden immediately declare a “climate emergency” and ban all oil drilling.

Meanwhile, in the real world, Saudi Arabia has signaled to the Chinese that they are willing to allow them to use Yaun (Chinese currency) instead of the US dollar to buy oil. That move would further devalue the dollar and weaken its standing in global markets.

From the Wall Street Journal:

Saudi Arabia is in active talks with Beijing to price some of its oil sales to China in yuan, people familiar with the matter said, a move that would dent the U.S. dollar’s dominance of the global petroleum market and mark another shift by the world’s top crude exporter toward Asia.

The talks with China over yuan-priced oil contracts have been off and on for six years but have accelerated this year as the Saudis have grown increasingly unhappy with decades-old U.S. security commitments to defend the kingdom, the people said.

The Saudis are angry over the U.S.’s lack of support for their intervention in the Yemen civil war, and over the Biden administration’s attempt to strike a deal with Iran over its nuclear program. Saudi officials have said they were shocked by the precipitous U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan last year.

The President did not address how he would offset the increases in costs because of his executive orders and it doesn’t seem like he cares either.

The man appears to be separated from reality.
