President Joe Biden, in just over 1.5 years in the White House, has managed to not only tank the American economy, but he has also made America more vulnerable to outside threats than it has been in decades or more.
Recently, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson went all in on calling out Biden’s dangerous policy decisions, specifically his recent authorization of selling oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve to foreign countries, including communist Chinese energy firms.
During a recent show, Carlson insisted that what Biden has done, on energy policy alone, should suffice for a proper impeachment trial once Republicans take control of the House in November and — God willing — the Senate.
“It turns out the oil being released isn’t for us. It’s going to India and China. According to Reuters, and we’re quoting, ‘more than 5 million barrels of oil that were part of a historic U.S. emergency reserve released to lower domestic fuel prices were exported to Europe and Asia last month,'” Carlson said.
He added: “The piece continues ‘cargo of SPR, crude (oil from our reserves) we’re also headed to the Netherlands into a Reliance refinery in India, an industry source said. A third cargo (buckle your seatbelt) headed to China.’ To China!”
“So, as gas prices set records in this country, as American citizens who were born here and vote and pay taxes cannot afford to fuel their own cars, the Biden administration is selling off our emergency oil reserves to China. That’s not an indictable offense? It’s certainly an impeachable one and they should impeach him for that,” he continued.
A number of high-profile Republicans have also called out the Biden administration for selling the United States’ emergency stash of oil.
Our SPR was created to address national or weather emergencies, not for political expediency and personal profit. Joe Biden’s recent releases of America’s SPR to China are deeply concerning.
I look forward to this Administration’s response!

Some have warned that with the depleted SPR levels, thanks to Biden, a matter of one particularly nasty Cat 4 or 5 hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico could leave the U.S. in an especially precarious and dangerous situation.
