A Fox News reporter asked one important question that left Joe Biden seething with rage

Joe Biden is going deep into his bag of tricks to save his failing regime.

He was caught red-handed in one outrageous act of hypocrisy.

And a Fox News reporter asked one important question that left Joe Biden seething with rage.

President Joe Biden is scheming to find a way to lower gas prices without taking his foot off the necks of American oil companies.

Going into the Midterm elections, the Biden regime released hundreds of millions of barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR) in a bid to lower gas prices to boost Democrats politically.

With the SPR – which is meant for an actual emergency – at its lowest level since 1984 and the election over, the Biden regime will stop siphoning from the reserve at the end of the year.

President Joe Biden hoped that he could come on bended knee and beg Saudi Arabia to bail him out by increasing their oil production, but the Saudis’ went the other way and slashed production.

So, he’s turning to Venezuela’s socialist dictatorship to save his bacon.

Over the Thanksgiving weekend, the Biden regime announced that some of the sanctions against Venezuela were being lifted, opening the door for oil imports from the country.

California-based oil giant Chevron was granted two licenses by the Treasury Department to carry out business with a Venezuelan state-owned oil company.

While Biden is clamping down on American energy production, he’s turning to a murderous socialist dictatorship to supply the country with oil.

Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy asked White House Coordinator for Strategic Communications at the National Security Council John Kirby about the staggering hypocrisy.

“On the sanctions relief for Venezuela, why is it that President Biden would rather let U.S. companies drill for oil in Venezuela than here in the U.S.?” Doocy asked.

“That’s not an accurate take on the President’s view,” Kirby replied.

“Earlier this month, he said ‘No more drilling, there is no more drilling,’” Doocy shot back.

During a campaign appearance in New York before the Midterm elections, President Biden told an environmental wacko who interrupted his event that there is no more drilling in America.

“There are plenty of opportunities for oil and gas companies to drill here in the United States,” Kirby said. “And I’ll let Chevron speak for this particular issue of sanctions relief, but our expectation is it won’t be a lot of oil coming out of there. It will have to be shipped to the United States.”

President Biden shut down drilling on oil-rich federal land the first day he occupied the White House, and has kept it that way despite the energy crisis gripping America, and the world at large.

Currently, the Biden regime has issued the fewest acres of federal land for drilling since the 1940’s by closing off federal land and clamping down on issuing drilling permits.

While Biden claims to care about the environment, he’s shutting down more environmentally-friendly American oil production for the dirtier Venezuelan production.

Joe Biden would rather go to America’s enemies for oil instead of unleashing American energy production.
