Biden War Against Oil.

Biden threatens oil companies to produce more even as they are already at full capacity amid skyrocketing gas, diesel prices

Why not reopen the pipeline he shut down when he was elected?

Joe Biden’s handlers have done all they could from the moment he was installed as ‘president’ to jack up the price of gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel, and other fossil fuels.

They accomplished this through policy: On Biden’s first day in office, they had him sign an executive order canceling the Keystone XL pipeline despite the fact that over the course of more than a decade the companies involved in the project had spent tens of billions of dollars, all for nothing.

He also signed orders barring oil companies from drilling new wells on federal lands and other areas of the country that the real president, Donald Trump, opened up for exploration during his tenure.

Even before his handlers were making policy, Biden campaigned on waging war on the fossil fuel industry, bending to the ‘green energy’ lunatics who are working to wreck our economy because they hate America as founded.

Now, Biden’s handlers have instructed him to go after the big oil companies themselves, issuing them threats of ‘presidential actions’ if they refused to ramp up production amid the sky-high fuel prices the regime’s policies caused in the first place.

Only, the companies have no excess capacity to ‘ramp up’: They are operating nearly at full capacity right now and besides, even if they had spare capacity, the labor market that Trump built is so tight there aren’t any extra oilfield and oil refinery workers to be found.

“At a time of war – historically high refinery profit margins being passed directly onto American families are not acceptable,” the figurehead president said in a letter to oil companies including Exxon Mobil and Chevron this week.

?[C]ompanies must take immediate actions to increase the supply of gasoline, diesel, and other refined product,” the letter added.

CNBC went on to note:

Refiners can’t just ramp up output, with utilization rates already above 90%. Additionally, some refiners are now being reconfigured to make alternate products like biofuel.

Refining capacity has dropped since the pandemic took hold, which is a factor in the rapid advance of fuel prices. Demand has returned as economies restart and people travel once again, but supply remains tight.

Nevertheless, Biden threatened that his administration is prepared to use “all reasonable and appropriate Federal Government tools and emergency authorities to increase refinery capacity and output in the near term.”

He cited a “global challenge and global concern,” with around 3 million barrels per day of global capacity offline since the start of the pandemic — not nearly enough to do much about current prices anyway.

His letter pointed to the “unprecedented disconnect between the price of oil and the price of gas.”

“Since the beginning of the year, refiners’ margins for refining gasoline and diesel have tripled, and are currently at their highest levels ever recorded,” he said.

This is because oil is a traded commodity, and when traders see a policy environment that is hostile to the industry, they know that refiners and oil companies are not going to invest in new facilities, new rigs, or new drilling, meaning over time, the supply of oil will drop even as demand continues to be high — leading to perpetually high gas prices.

High gas and diesel prices are being felt by average Americans in a big way. Fuel prices, along with food costs and inflation, generally, have become the biggest issues heading into the 2o22 midterms, which Democrats won’t mind losing because ‘their guy’ remains at the helm of policy in the White House.

Biden’s ongoing war on big oil is going to continue to keep prices high — unless Republicans can manage a congressional supermajority they can use to override Biden’s vetoes until the next presidential election.

What To Do After an EMP Attack

Personal safety and survival: 15 Things to do after an EMP attack

06/16/2022 / By Zoey Sky

An electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is a broadband burst of electromagnetic energy. This massively powerful wave can potentially damage almost all electronic devices within hundreds of miles.

Before SHTF, learn about the 15 things you need to do after an EMP attack. (h/t to TheSurvivalMom.com)

An EMP attack can last for several weeks or months, so you need to prepare for a life without the power grid and a lot of permanently damaged electronics.

In a post-EMP world, many communities will eventually learn how to devise new and better systems since old ones may no longer be needed or wanted. (Related: SHTF tips: How to survive an EMP attack that brings down the power grid.)

EMP survival for preppers

Make the most of your free time and prepare before SHTF by:

  • Learning new skills and knowledge.
  • Saving money so you can buy important survival gear and supplies.
  • Making your body stronger by following a nutritious diet and exercising regularly. This helps ensure that you are physically ready for difficult tasks, regardless of the survival scenario that you are facing.

Even if you’re not a hardened soldier, as a prepper you have many advantages that will help you survive when disaster strikes.

For example, your experience has taught you how to recognize warning signs that will help you take proactive steps to prepare. It’s also easy to incorporate both the mindset and lifestyle of preparedness into your daily life.

You will need to learn on the fly, quickly adapt and improvise and be ready to team up with others to form communities.

Things to do immediately after an EMP attack

Prepare before it’s too late and remember these 15 things you need to do after an EMP attack.

  1. Verify what happened and what caused the EMP attack.
  2. Delegate tasks so you can quickly prep things for the whole family.
  3. Check if there are any electrical fires generated by the EMP and put them out quickly.
  4. Make sure you have a steady supply of clean water.
  5. Try to start your car to see if you can still drive it.
  6. Gather your children. This may take a while time depending on your transportation and how many children you have.
  7. If you are somewhere else during the EMP attack, get home as fast as you can.
  8. Determine a reliable way to keep track of time.
  9. Stock up on last-minute supplies.
  10. Continue to acquire more supplies.
  11. Check up on close friends and family members if they live nearby. Alternatively, if you have a car and can make the trip quickly, send someone else to check up on them. If they need help, you can also bring them back to your house.
  12. Eat all the food in your refrigerator and freezer before it spoils. If there’s too much food, you can try to preserve them to extend its shelf life.
  13. Inform your neighbors about the EMP attack.
  14. Gather vital information, especially if the EMP attack is due to a terrorist or rogue state.
  15. Make the necessary preparations to survive the season in which the EMP attack occurred.

14 EMP-proof items to stock up on ASAP

Before disaster strikes, stock up on these 14 survival essentials.

Blankets and warm clothes

If you experience an EMP in the summer, you don’t need to worry about heating. But if the attack happens during winter, you will need blankets and warm clothing.

Stock up on heavy blankets, sleeping bags and warm winter clothing.

Books

Books might seem less important compared to the other items on this list, but you will need books as reference materials or for entertainment when the internet goes down during an EMP.

Bullets and firearms

Bullets and guns are impervious to an EMP, but make sure you don’t keep them in a safe with an electronic pad since it won’t work after an EMP attack.

Candles

If you run out of batteries for flashlights, use candles as a light source.

Cash

When the grid goes down, you won’t be able to use your credit or debit cards. If you have emergency cash on hand, you can still buy supplies.

Food

Since your refrigerator and freezer will be affected by an EMP, it’s best to stock up on foods with a long shelf life and items that don’t require freezing or refrigeration. This includes beans, canned meat and vegetables, energy bars, flour, peanut butter and white rice.

Lighters

You’ll need lighters and lighter fluid so you can light your candles and start fires for cooking or staying warm.

Personal hygiene items

Stock up on hygiene essentials like deodorant, soap, shampoo, razors, hand sanitizer, toothpaste, laundry detergent, dishwashing soap and baking soda.

Solar panels

With solar panels, you can power smaller items even after an EMP attack.

Stove

With a stove, you can cook food and stay warm. Make sure you also have a wood cook stove and lots of firewood.

Toilet paper

If you don’t have running water, you will need toilet paper to wipe yourself clean.

Tools

Basic, non-electronic tools will still work and be very useful following an EMP. Make sure you have essential tools like axes, knives, hammers, nails, saws, screwdrivers, screws and wrenches.

Trash bags

When SHTF, you can use trash bags for more than sanitation. You can use a trash bag as a makeshift poncho or for storing food and water.

Water

You may lose access to running water after an EMP attack. Stock up on clean water so you have enough for drinking, cooking, cleaning, cooking and hygiene.

Alternatively, you can set up a rainwater catchment system as a backup.
