Biden Calls Draining 40 Years Worth of Emergency Oil in 9 Months ‘Top Accomplishment’ of Presidency

The Biden administration says their decision to drain of 190 million barrels, 40 years worth, of oil from the emergency U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve is one of their top accomplishments of 2022.

Additionally, they brag that they’ve sold millions of barrels of oil to China and other foreign entities as America faces high gas prices in a worsening domestic energy predicament heading into the dead of winter.

Based on a December 23 press release from Biden’s Energy Department, the release of 190 million barrels of oil from the emergency reserve is second on their list of top accomplishments in 2022.

The administration claimed that the controversial move protected “global energy security,” but stopped short of repeating their past assertions that the release would help “the pain Americans are feeling at the pump.”

Biden has faced criticism from both political parties in the U.S. for depleting the emergency oil reserves instead of bolstering American energy independence, easing sanctions on, and selling millions of barrels to U.S. adversaries, such as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the socialist Venezuelan regime.

In April and May, amidst a record surge in gas prices, the Biden administration sent close to one million barrels to the Chinese government-owned Unipec, and another five million overseas to Europe and Asia.

The foreign oil sales, some have claimed, crippled the administration’s ability to lower record gas prices at home, and caused the emergency reserves to deplete at levels unseen in 40 years — holding just 372 million barrels.

Biden’s Energy Department says the president “rightly authorized emergency use of the [Strategic Petroleum Reserve] mission to address supply disruptions—providing relief to American families and refineries when needed the most.”

Republicans say that Democrats have been depleting America’s emergency oil reserves as a political solution instead of a national security tool.

In October, just ahead of the 2022 November midterm elections, Biden announced that the administration would release another 15 million barrels to “prevent oil price spikes” after failing to convince Saudi moguls in OPEC to hold off on reducing oil production.

While the U.S. has the capability to produce energy for itself with its massive supply of domestic oil, regulatory policies put forth by the “green energy” friendly Biden administration have produced major challenges for refineries at home, as well as dramatic gas price hikes since January 2021, reaching a record high above $5 a gallon in June.

  1. If he thinks that was an “accomplishment”, we’re in far worse trouble than I thought, which seems near impossible, considering how bad I think it is… That’s a total fisco, in no possible way “good”!

  2. HEY, “IT” IS A DIMOCRAT, WHAT ELSE CAN I SAY. ALL DIMOCRATS ARE STUPID, ANTI-AMERICAN, AND TOTALLY INCOMPETENT.

    1. SAD but TRUE Rond. Too bad we do not have a few Dumbocrats with a functioning brain. Most are stupid and Brain Dead, like Biden.

  3. This certainly WAS Biden’s “top accomplishments” – in further destroying our national security by using the global “climate change” scheme to destroy the US as a superpower. And you can be sure he sold our oil at the highest price our enemies were willing to pay do help him do so. Rest assured, the exorbitant kickback Biden got from these sales will not be declared on his tax returns.

    1. So he took oil from our SPR and, instead of using it for Americans, sold quantities to foreign countries for $X dollars. To replace the oil he sold, Biden bought back quantiries from other countries for $X + $Y. Bottom line this is a double failure. 1. Removing “strategic” oil and selling it to others, and then, 2. Trying to replenish the quantities at a higher cost!

  4. There must be something we don’t know about this issue because no one could be that f-ing stupid. How about the Biden family being blackmailed? Other than the lies he’s repeatedly told from the podium. Our Founding Fathers must wonder what has happened to the America they so carefully built. Biden, sheesh! What a maroon! We should get to whoever’s telling him he’s doing well and make them stop! God help us if he runs again and wins. I know it’s too unreal to consider but look at the hair-brained, unthinkable decisions he’s made. Someone in high places thinks another four years of his vanishing cognition will be good for us. The Elite One World Government idiots, perhaps? They want anyone in office they can control. But if they are incorruptible and resilient, they will never see the Oval Office. It was just like Senator Ron Paul, who fell prey to the Mainstream media trying to bury his victories. The media even admitted to doing as much, the bastards!

    1. IF Xi-den runs again, he won’t “win” by 81 MILLION “votes”, he’ll “win” by 90 MILLION “votes”!

  5. Eff this retard.
    Karma is the balancing of ALL things.
    We cannot force karma, but allow The Universe to roll.
    And, “it” will roll right over the unjust and evil.
    President Trump for Speaker and THEN President.
    Can’t wait for LOT’S of criminal and traitorous goons sitting in front of the world stage, getting sentenced.

  7. The American Tax payer paid for that emergency U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve to put it into a reserve for emergency purposes, NOT political purposes to save his hide after he insulted our off shore supply lines. He shut down the oil pipe line on his first day in office and in less that 700 days had to drain “OUR” emergency supply by over 50% to keep himself looking like the idiot he is. His shut down was strictly a political deal just like the rest of his “Cancel Trump” ideas were on day one. All this is going to do is drive up the oil prices again as he has no where else to turn now. He is now even saying it was a mistake to cancel the pipeline and lose the economic influx of billions of dollars in construction and resulting oil. I have yet to see any positive move this man has made FOR the people that actually benefits everyone as everything has been so politically motivated and sided it’s sickening. I hope the Democrats are happy with him and his idiocy. He is making mega bucks off all of us as usual, probably thinking he can take it all with him when they finally put him in a box. The damage he has done to the USA in only 730 days is staggering and will last for generations. I doubt our Strategic Petroleum Reserve will ever return to the levels it was at. On the other hand China has benefited as they got most of the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Go figure.

  8. How much longer do “WE THE PEOPLE” are going to allow this senile President to lead our country to destruction? Let’s pressure the politicians to execute the change!

  9. Joey should be up on charges of treason. Selling strategic oil supply to are enemy. Letting the country be invaded. Destroying the economy and cutting are military strength. Who is allowing him to do it? The greedy people of this country looking for personnel gain. Guided by the MSM propaganda organization.

  10. By his own words UNCONSTITUTIONAL, BAR UNION MEMBER (BUM) BIDEN is a TRAITOR, guilty of sedition, treason, deceptive trade & fraudulent business practices. FEED BIDEN & his enablers ASAP to G-d’s predators – lions, tigers, bears, piranhas, et al. NO SENSE wasting the MEATHEAD.
    Televise the event for the world to see & build the WALL w/ the proceeds!

  11. No, he’s not stupid. This is all done by design to destroy our country, freedom and this wonderful way of life that we take for granted. The rest of the world is jealous that we have more oil, food, cars. Better houses and we treat our dogs better than the rest of the world treats their women. We are the only free country left. We are the only country that believes in GOD, THE BIBLE AND THE RIGHT TO BEAR ARMS AGAINST A GOVERNMENT OUT OF CONTROL. The American people should’ve dismantled the the capital when they stole the election and put a communist/socialist anti American idiot in place of the President WE ELECTED: DONALD TRUMP. WE ELECTED TRUMP BY THE BIGGEST LANDSLIDE IN AMERICAN HISTORY. AND THEY STOLE IT. THEY KNOW IT, WE KNOW IT AND THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT. THAT IDIOT CANNOT LEGALLY BE PRESIDENT BECAUSE WE NEVER VOTED HIM IN. HE’S AN IMPOSTER, THEIF AND A LIAR. THIS IS A WAR BETWEEN THE BIBLE AND THE QURAN THATS BEEN GOING ON FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. WE LET THE RATS IN OUR GOVERNMENT. THAT’S RIGHT!!! THE RATS ARE IN OUR HOUSE. TIME FOR EXTERMINATION. IT’S BEEN DONE BEFORE AND WILL BE DONE AGAIN. OR LOOK AT VENEZUELA. THATS OUR FUTURE YOU LAZY, FAT, WORTHLESS AMERICAN PEOPLE. IF YOU HAD ANY DIGNITY, GOD GIVEN MORALS, INTEGRITY OR RESPECT YOUD TAKE IT ALL APART BRICK BY BRICK. THEY’RE SCARED. WHY ELSE WOULD THEY PUT RAZOR WIRE AROUND THEMSELVES. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE:: THE MOST SHIT ON AND PISSED OFF MFKRS IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND.
    LIVE FREE OF DIE TRYING….

  12. Of course it’s one of his greatest accomplishments IN DESTROYING the U. S. of A!! That IS his goal and the rest of the democRAT COMMIES and RINO in the district of CORRUPTION!! Yup! He’s doing a great job of it too.

  13. Sure would like to see how much money Biden has stolen from the American people in just the time he has been President….

  14. Clément change is a bunch of B S….It’s just another way for Biden to put more money in his pocket…Don’t these dummies know how much the rain cleans the air every time it rains ?? And it is raining some place around the world EVERY DAY….Then we have the clouds that clean too….And , is biden going to call out GOD for letting Volcanos blow off around the world…I’m telling you folks…We are being SCREWED by this man and his buddy ” Kerry…..They BOTH are making Millions from this……Why does anyone wonder why they are pushing this so far…?

  15. The way he’s going, his biggest accomplishment is that he has any control over bladder because his brain sure isn’t right.

  16. I have thought for a long time that biden was senile, now i think he is just plain ignorant!

  17. Sure wish Biden lived like the rest of us-no question he has no idea his policies hurt us. He’s been government all his adult and unfortunately, to many have believed his stories. I am truly sadden by this president!

  18. His biggest accomplishment was committing treason for sell that oil to our enemies and allowing the country to be invaded.

  19. I agree draining the oil reserves (which is used for emergency purposes in times of war) and selling it to China and elsewhere while telling us it was to reduce gas prices was a big thing. A big foolish thing! However I think his departure plan from Afghanistan leaving Americans and billions of dollars worth of military weapons behind tops it. Don’t ask me to make a list of his next noteworthy achievement because the list is too long to copy here.

  20. Elections have consequences. And it seems like a lot of people don’t care judging by the results of the 2022 elections as almost every Demorat was reelected. The Demorats even chose another moron over an intelligent doctor. So, our future looks deem as long as voters don’t begin voting for good candidates instead of a political party.

  21. FJB IS THE ABSOLUTE WORST MFRB SCUMBAG IN HISTORY OF AMERICA… A ROCK HAS MORE BRAINS THEN THIS BRAIN DEAD IDIOT…FJB DOES WHATEVER SORASS AND CHINA TELLS HIM TOO…FJB IS GUILTY OF TREASON ESPIONAGE AND HUNDREDS OF OTHER CRIMES..OVERDOSE DEATHS ARE ALL ON FJB..FJB IS A WASTE OF AIR AND A WASTE OF SPACE…KARMA TAKE THIS CORRUPT CRIMINAL COMMUNIST FJB OUT TOTALLY ONCE AND FOR ALL…..!!!!!!! WHATEVER IT TAKES DO IT NOW…THEN HIS PREDO PEDO PERV FREAKS AND FJB KLANN TOO…. THEY ALL DESERVE WHAT EVER YOU WANT TO DO KARMA…USE YOUR IMAGINATION…GET CREATIVE…

  22. If we have a conflict, we can’t fuel our ships and planes! Thank the crooked senile idiot!

  23. Of course Xi-den sees this as a POSITIVE accomplishment. Why didn’t congress stop him? Congress was run by leftist democRATS! What is the agenda of leftist democRATS and Xi-den: To fully DESTROY the U. S. of A.! They will do ANYTHING and EVERYTHING in order to destroy the country they HATE! Why do they hate the FREEDOMS, LIBERTIES, RIGHTS and PROTECTIONS this country affords THEM? Because those same attributes are given to US and they can’t CONTROL us as long as our CONSTITUTION is still in effect. They are CONTROL FREAKS and want CONTROL over EVERYTHING!
