QUID PRO JOE?
The Biden regime reportedly tried to convince Saudi Arabia and the rest of OPEC to delay their planned oil production cuts until after the midterm elections, using U.S. foreign policy for clearly partisan political purposes.
Remember: OPEC, a group of 13 powerful oil-producing countries, announced it would cut oil production by 2 million barrels per day, in spite of Biden’s public objections.
Also remember, historically Saudi Arabia has been a key ally in the Middle East.
According to this report, which spoke to administration officials familiar with the talks, Biden told the Saudis that if they didn’t delay their production cuts by one month, it would be seen as them siding with Russia in the war in Ukraine. Biden also said it would cause the U.S. to reconsider its support for Saudi Arabia.
Saudi Arabia dismissed the request and according to this report, viewed it “as a political gambit by the Biden administration to avoid bad news ahead of the U.S. midterm elections.”
What the Biden regime says:
Adrienne Watson, a National Security Council spokeswoman said:
“It’s categorically false to connect this to U.S. elections. It’s about the impact of this shortsighted decision on the global economy.”
…but if this were truly about the “global” economy, as Watson says, then why is the specific timeline delaying the cut until after the midterm elections?
Is the war in Ukraine going to expire in November? The answer is no.
This is Biden doing what Biden has done his entire swampy, political career. He extorts foreign countries for his own political and financial benefit.
