This guy has no clue about reality at all. From The Hill this morning:

President Biden on Monday warned that oil companies would face a “higher tax” on their excess profits if they don’t reinvest in increasing production to bring down prices at the pump.

Of course, the article mentions nothing about Biden’s stated intentions of shutting down the oil companies.

Look, this is nothing more and nothing less than an attempt to forestall the judgment of the American people on his pursuit of green policy. He knows he’s going to be rejected because the costs are just too damned high. Going, hat in hand, to Saudi Arabia and begging them to increase production didn’t work so now he’s going to threaten the American companies with fines for not doing exactly what he told them not to do, that is, produce oil.

You know, maybe declaring war on American energy wasn’t such a good idea after all? Just a thought.
