Oil imports from Russia hit all-time high under President Biden

It’s no secret at this point that President Joe Biden, by any measure, has made a number of ridiculously bad calls for America, from rolling back former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies to once again being dependent on foreign oil to sustain America’s energy needs.

As The DC Weekly writer Christine Pratt pointed out in a recent piece, canceling the Keystone XL pipeline project was perhaps one of Biden’s biggest flops since taking the White House, as America is now insanely dependent on oil imports from both Saudi Arabia — and Russia. 

Not only would the Keystone XL pipeline keep America energy-dependent to a large degree, but it also would have created literally thousands of primary, secondary, and tertiary jobs to support the massive project — actual jobs, not the fantasy solar panel assembly jobs promised by the Democrats’ push to pass Build Back Better.

Adding insult to injury, as Russia prepares a likely invasion of Ukraine while Biden’s White House promises strong sanctions if that were to happen, it’s truly no wonder why Biden seems soft in his approach to Russia and President Vladimir Putin, as we now depend fairly heavily on Russian oil imports.

“The most recent data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration shows that in May, the U.S. imported 844,000 barrels per day of crude oil and petroleum products from Russia. That’s almost 10% of all the U.S. imports for that month,” Pratt wrote.

That’s not to mention the situation involving Biden’s failure to sanction Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, which only further emboldened the country to exert its energy power on virtually the entire world.

Pratt added: “As a result of Biden’s energy policies, gasoline in the US is nearly twice as much as a year ago. Did Biden do this for money or blackmail? It looks like he is the real ‘Putin Puppet’. Democrats called President Trump this but then again, they always project their sins on others.”

Democrats might have taken cheap shots at Trump for how he dealt with Putin, but America was absolutely in a far better place under Trump and his style of leadership than it is right now.

The real test for Biden’s presidency could come at any moment, should Putin move forward with an invasion into Ukraine.
