U.S. Senator Seeks BLOCKING Joe Biden’s Latest Project
(TargetLiberty.org) – In November 2021 and March 2022, President Joe Biden released an astonishing 260 million barrels of oil from the US Strategic Petroleum Reserve (SPR), some of which is reportedly going to China. On July 13, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) proposed the No Emergency Crude Oil for Foreign Adversaries Act to stop the president from selling the United States’ fuel supply to certain nations.

The Texas legislator pointed out emergency reserves are currently at their lowest since 1986, calling the recent releases by Biden “reckless and inexplicable.” Cruz and the other lawmakers who are backing the proposal said the depletion undermines the United States, props up adversarial nations, and does not put America first. The legislation will block the government from selling oil to Iran, North Korea, Russia, and China, but allows a waiver for national security reasons.
Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) said there’s absolutely no reason Biden should be selling such fuel to enemy nations. In fact, she believes the president should concentrate on achieving “energy independence.” Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) agreed America should prioritize its energy needs over other countries.
Although the Department of Energy plans to replenish the US oil supply, Republican legislators want controls in place to keep America’s resources from getting into adversarial hands.
Do you think the legislation should pass to protect our reserves?
