Manchin Double-Crosses Democrats Again – Now the Senator Is Switching Sides on Alaska Project

What’s Happening:

You don’t have to be an energy expert to know Biden singlehandedly destroyed the American industry. He immediately shut down America’s fossil fuel industry by canceling leases to drill on federal land. And he shut down other projects that provided safe, cheap oil and gas for Americans.

Big surprise, energy prices skyrocketed. But Democrats refused to do anything. They seem to care more about their climate activism than Americans making ends meet. Republicans have pushed for years to restore America’s energy independence. Finally, it seems the Biden administration is budging, a little bit. And one Democrat is defying his party to ensure the plan goes through.

From Fox News:

Democrat West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin joined his Republican colleagues Monday in support of President Joe Biden’s decision to approve a massive oil drilling project in Alaska, despite a number of his fellow Democrats accusing the administration of contradicting its own climate policies…

The Biden administration announced Monday that it was moving forward with approving the massive 30-year oil drilling project over objections from climate activists and Democrat lawmakers about its environmental impact.

Don’t be so quick to praise Joe Biden. His administration is only reapproving something he shut down two years ago. Thanks to Republicans for continuing to call out Biden’s failures on American energy.

After two years of rising gas prices and a struggling economy, the administration has been forced to admit defeat. At least in this one area, Joe is doing something to reverse a bad decision. Even still, the lion’s share of his party is against it.

Democrats are outraged that we might soon have access to safe, affordable energy. Don’t buy their claims that drilling for oil in Alaska is “unsafe.” Modern drilling can both extract needed resources while ensuring the environment is protected.

Democrats only want to shut down oil and natural gas, because they pasties for globalists. China and other nations don’t want America producing fossil fuels, because it increases competition worldwide. So, the left has become useful idiots, whining about the environment. All the while, Saudi Arabia and others get rich.

Sen. Joe Manchin broke from his own party to support this move. Without strong support from Republicans and moderates like Manchin, this wouldn’t happen. With the House under Republican control and with Manchin aligning with Republicans, this ROD can go through.

Let the climate alarmists bicker all they want. Perhaps soon, we can actually afford to fill up our cars again.

Key Takeaways:

  • Joe Manchin sided with Republicans to back the ConocoPhillips Willow Project.
  • This drilling project in Alaska was shut down by Biden, but the administration is about to reapprove it.
  • Democrats raged over this move, claiming it would hurt the environment.
