During World War I and II we didn’t really participate in the fighting until it was necessary for us to get involved. We were more neutral and sold munitions to our allies. With what seems to be an imminent invasion of Ukraine, we could be doing the same thing with our energy resources this time around. GOP Rep Claudia Tenney pointed out that Biden is failing us on multiple levels here with our pipeline closures.
“Putin is putting all his ducks in a row so he doesn’t have to use any kind of force,” Republican Rep. Claudia Tenney said. “He’s using aggression by having troops around. He’s also using energy as a weapon. He’s hoping that Nord Stream 2 [pipeline] comes through.”
Meanwhile, President Joe Biden’s solution is to meet with Qatar about obtaining liquified natural gas, which many in Europe are dependent on and which is what Putin is using as leverage, said Tenney.
“While Biden supports more liquefied natural gas coming from Qatar, he is shutting down the Keystone pipeline, which made our country less energy independent, said Tenney. “We’re not exporting our fuel. We’re not growing our economy. We have high gas prices and inflation and a lot of that is caused by transportation costs and the cost of gasoline and fuel, and it’s a wrongheaded policy.”
“Why aren’t we projecting strength?” she added. “Why aren’t we building up our energy supplies and making sure that we are making partnerships in Europe and are being able to export to Europe our clean gas and our clean fuel?”

She has a valid point here. Gas prices are on the rise here in America and our allies are about to be hurting for energy resources if the Ukraine-Russia conflict happens because Russia supplies them with a fair amount of their energy. So it’s a no-brainer to open back up our Keystone pipeline. We should be utilizing our own resources and selling some to our allies so they can be less dependent on Russia.
