If Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm came to the congressional oversight hearings thinking she could get away with regurgitating Joe Biden’s talking points about Putin price hikes, she soon learned differently.
Senator Josh Hawley was not about to let her lay that at Putin’s feet.
He had energy price hike facts and figures that long predated Putin’s violation of Ukraine’s border. And he had a specific list of policies enacted in Joe Biden’s first few days in office that had direct bearing on those energy prices.
Here he is holding her feet to the fire.
But lest you think Biden’s anti-energy policies are not taking effect across EVERY federal agency pushing his agenda, here is a shocking exchange between possibly the only elected pro-energy Democrat still in office and Biden’s Secretary of the Interior Department
“Secretary Haaland, you all just put out a statement, the U.S. Department of Interior just put out a statement, and the statement basically says, ‘A proposed program is not a decision to issue specific leases or to authorize any drilling or development,'” Manchin said.
“This is from y’all’s office,'” he explained. “So it looks like you are gonna shut everything down. Did you know y’all put this out?”
“I, I, I, I — I’m sorry, I’m sitting in this hearing, and not —” Haaland stumbled.
“My God — this shuts it down,” Manchin shot back. “It shows what your intent is.” —Blaze
As with policies pushed by so many other authoritarian zealots, the pain produced by these policies is the point. If you’re going to continue doing things they don’t like — like using fossil fuel as an energy source — it’s gonna cost you dearly.
They already know they can’t win your hearts. Their plan is to break your backs until you have no choice but to comply.
They really don’t care HOW the job gets done or how much people might suffer along the way, so long as their agenda wins in the end.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
