Elections have consequences, right? So, what happens if those consequences include not being able to deliver food to our big cities?
Joe Biden may have had the slimmest of all possible mandates, but the guy who ‘beat the socialist’ while claiming to run as a ‘moderate’ has proceeded to force-feed the hardest of hard-left agendas down our collective throat.
He began on day-one by putting his jackboot firmly on the neck of the energy industry and it has only gotten worse every day.
Remember the debate between Biden and Trump? Trump correctly called him out on exactly this point, and Joe denied it. Biden Vs. Biden: Remember When Joe Repeatedly Said He Would Ban Fracking? He Apparently Doesn’t (VIDEO)

Once he came into office, the energy sector was buffeted by Biden and his Democrats six ways past Sunday. We now have the stats to prove it.
A new study indicates that President Joe Biden’s energy policies have cost the U.S. nearly $100 billion in annual output, leaving millions more barrels that could have been produced.
The Committee to Unleash Prosperity — a group founded by economists Steve Forbes, Art Laffer, and Stephen Moore — discovered a trend while reviewing oil and gas production under the previous two administrations.
Between 2 and 3 million more barrels of oil would be produced each day if former President Donald Trump had a second term, with another 20 to 25 billion cubic feet of natural gas produced as well, according to the report. — NewsMax
To make matters worse, Biden has been draining out Strategic Oil Reserve at the same time that he is depleting our weapons stockpile by shipping it all to Ukraine… meaning that if China wanted to make good on any of the expansionist moves they’ve been hinting at, Joe has made it far more difficult for America to respond decisively should we need to defend any allies.
But here at home, where energy is literally the lifeblood of our economy, our shelves are looking frighteningly bare.
Data provided by the Energy Information Administration (EIA) show that diesel stockpiles are at their lowest level for October in records that date back to 1993, according to a Bloomberg News analysis. EIA data show that the United States, as of Oct. 14, has 25.4 days of supply—down from 34.2 days of supply four weeks prior.
…The diesel crunch comes just over two weeks before the November 2022 midterm elections and will likely drive up prices even more. Diesel is the fuel used by freight trains and commonly used by long-haul truckers to transport goods and food.
“Most of the products we use are transported by trucks and trains with diesel engines, and most construction, farming, and military vehicles and equipment also have diesel engines,” the EIA’s website states. “As a transportation fuel, diesel fuel offers a wide range of performance, efficiency, and safety features. Diesel fuel also has a greater energy density than other liquid fuels, so it provides more useful energy per unit of volume.” — EpochTimes
Why does this matter?
The trucks and trains that bring everything our cities run on, not to mention so much of the heavy construction equipment used for building, runs on diesel. When the diesel stops… so do the ships, trucks, trains, and jobs that depend on on them. If you thought you’d seen ‘supply chain disruptions’ before … wait until we can’t bring anything to market.
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.
