Even as President Joe Biden falsely claims energy prices are high because oil and gas companies stopped drilling, the Biden administration this week announced a shutdown of oil and gas drilling across 35 million acres of the U.S.
“The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) announced its plans to stifle oil and gas development across Colorado on 8.3 million acres of BLM-managed and 27 million acres of subsurface mineral estate under the guise of ‘safeguarding’ big game migration,” reports Congresswoman Lauren Boebert (R-CO.)
“Biden’s latest Colorado land grab is another example of this radical regime’s deliberate assault on American energy and the economy. While Coloradans are facing historically high gas prices, the Biden regime is using every excuse and tactic in the book to block responsible domestic energy production,” said Boebert.
“Instead of creating affordable gas and jobs under the highest standards in the world, Biden would rather fly with his entourage overseas to beg and fist bump the Saudi Prince to try and convince him to produce more foreign oil,” Boebert notes.
“Mayor Pete’s solution for high gas prices is to tell Americans to just buy a new electric vehicle. They couldn’t be more out of touch. I encourage everyone that is tired of wildfires and high gas prices to submit a comment in opposition to this Colorado land grab,” said Boebert.
Boebert notes Americans can submit comments in opposition through September 2, 2022, by mailing a letter to BLM Colorado State Office, Attn: Big Game Corridor Amendment/EIS, 2850 Youngfield St., Lakewood, CO 80215.
The Biden scheme also shuts down timber harvesting, leaving millions of acres now vulnerable to deadly wildfires. Radical liberals have openly promoted using the threat of wildfires to remove human populations from much of the middle of the country.
Biden’s BLM Administrator, Tracy Stone-Manning is a confessed ecoterrorist, having confessed to FBI agents in 1989 she planted metal spikes in trees in the hopes it would cause loggers’ chainsaws to explode, causing injuries or death. Stone-Manning also threatened to kill federal agents before flipping and testifying against other ecoterrorists.
