Biden admin cancels massive oil and gas lease sale amid record-high gas prices (msn.com)

The Biden administration canceled one of the most high-profile oil and gas lease sales pending before the Department of the Interior Wednesday, as Americans face record-high prices at the pump, according to AAA.
The DOI halted the potential to drill for oil in over 1 million acres in Alaska's Cook Inlet, along with two lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico. The move comes as Biden has taken a few actions to combat high gas prices, despite his administration's generally hostile approach to the oil industry.

A DOI spokesperson cited a "lack of industry interest in leasing in the area" for the decision "not to move forward" with the Cook Inlet lease sale, CBS News reported. The spokesperson also said the department canceled the Gulf of Mexico leases – lease 259 and lease 261 – due to "conflicting court rulings that impacted work on these proposed lease sales."
Federal law requires DOI to stick to a five-year leasing plan for auctioning offshore leases. The department had until the end fo the current five-year plan – due to expire on June 30 – to complete the sales.
Within his first week in office, President Biden signed an executive order temporarily suspending new oil and gas leases on federal lands. The administration resumed the new leasing last month following court challenges against the ban. The administration is appealing a ruling in which Judge James Cain, a Trump appointee, struck down the ban.
This is a huge deal. Out of one side of their mouthes they blame and say drill drill drill but then they take leases away that have proven oil.

The Biden administration on Wednesday announced it will axe three planned oil and gas lease sales in the Gulf of Mexico and Alaska's Cook Inlet, effectively halting the potential to sell drilling leases in coastal waters this year, several media outlets report.

At the same time throwing billions at foreign countries to import energy....

The Biden administration announced last week it would provide more than $3 Billion in a push to make components and batteries for electric vehicles. The price of lithium has surged 430% over the last year and 95% of battery materials are imported from Asia.

China Joe is fostering a national security risk, making the US more dependent on foreign governments!


"Our power plants, our telecommunications, our data centers," said Brent. "And there are literally zero battery materials produced on U.S. soil today. And that's a serious issue. We have less than a month of supply on U.S. soil."

Another example of China Joe's policy of America last. Think China Joe cares about you the American citizen and your children? Think again!!!

"They are sending pallets, pallets of baby formula to the border," Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., said in a video posted to Facebook Wednesday. "Meanwhile, in our own district at home, we cannot find baby formula."

The head of the Biden administration's new Disinformation Governance Board pitched the idea of allowing verified accounts to "edit" Twitter and add context to others' tweets, roiling Tesla CEO Elon Musk, whose $44 billion bid for the social media platform was accepted last month.

So the Biden Administration wants to edit your speech before it goes public...

So how does that sit with those of you on the left who feigned concern for our democracy.....

No one is avoiding this thread. As a reminder the person you replied to was totally cool with how Jan 6th played out so take his commentary with a grain of salt. I'm sure he will take offense to this and try to deflect blame but it's nature to be a part of the radical right who supported a coup because it was his side doing it.

I put him on ignore long ago. I suggest you and everyone else here do the same.

OK, but how do you feel about Biden's ministry of truth? That was the question of the post I replied to.

ina Jankowicz, the executive director of the Department of Homeland Security’s newly established Disinformation Governance Board, recently suggested that verified Twitter users be granted the ability edit others’ tweets if they deem them misleading.

There are a lot of people who shouldn’t be verified, who aren’t legit, in my opinion. I mean, they’re real people but they aren’t trustworthy,” began Jankowicz, who went on to propose that verified users be able to “essentially edit Twitter… by add[ing] context to certain tweets,” Jankowicz said in a video obtained by The Post Millenial.

“If President [Donald] Trump were still on Twitter and tweeted a claim about voter fraud, someone could add context from one of the 60 lawsuits that went through the court or something that an election official,” explained Jankowicz.

It’s unclear how Jankowicz would differentiate between trustworthy and untrustworthy verified accounts.

In a book published earlier this year, How to Be a Woman Online: Surviving Abuse and Harassment, and How to Fight Back, Jankowicz purports to have performed “rigorous research into the treatment of Kamala Harris,” using it “to provide a step-by-step plan for dealing with harassment, abuse, doxing and disinformation in online spaces.”

Notably, Jankowicz, who is verified on Twitter, has been a source of disinformation, including on the platform. In 2020, Jankowicz promoted Christopher Steele, the author of the discredited Trump-Russia dossier, as an authoritative source on disinformation, and cast doubt on the validity of the since-confirmed Hunter Biden laptop story, arguing that it should be treated as “a Trump campaign product.”

White House press secretary Jen Psaki told reporters last month that she did not have “any information about this individual.” Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted in a recent Congressional hearing that he was unaware of Jankowicz’s online commentary.

I'll be surprised if you get an answer that isn't a deflection, just as you already got from him. While complaining about others deflecting blame that's exactly what he did in that very post.

What I did do was call out the lefts hypocrisy and ask questions about what we were being told. And why wouldn't we question what the left was saying after four years of lies about Russia/Trump and other issues.

He can review my posts in the Jan 6th thread and point out where I said I was was totally cool with how Jan 6th played out as he claims.
