President Biden has been exposed by Saudi Arabia, who revealed that the American leader begged them to hold off on oil cuts until after midterms, acknowledging it would impact the Democrats’ chances of maintaining power.
OPEC+, led by Saudi Arabia, announced a major oil production cut of 2 million barrels per day last week – a move which left the Biden administration frantically scrambling for a temporary solution to stop Americans from feeling the impact until after midterms—the point at which he stops caring.
Biden responded to the Saudi’s move by saying there would be “consequences,” and while he did not offer specifics on what exactly that might look like, it was later reported that the president “expressed openness to retaliatory measures offered by congressional Democrats such as curbing arms sales or permitting legal action against the cartel.”
Biden didn’t seem to care that OPEC+ was going to cut oil production eventually, rather his issue was with the timing of the cuts. The administration pleaded with the Saudis to hold off for at least another month until OPEC+’s next meeting which is scheduled for November 3rd.
Though that date is just days before the U.S. midterm elections take place, the decision would not have had enough time to impact fuel prices and persuade voters against the Democrats who put us in this situation.
For its part, Saudi Arabia recently released a statement expressing its “total rejection” of claims that the decision was “politically motivated” against the United States.
“The Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia would also like to clarify that based on its belief in the importance of dialogue and exchange of views with its allies and partners outside the OPEC + group regarding the situation in the oil markets, the Government of the Kingdom clarified through its continuous consultation with the US Administration that all economic analyses indicate that postponing the OPEC+ decision for a month, according to what has been suggested, would have had negative economic consequences,” Saudi Arabia said in the statement.
Adel Al-Jubeir, the Saudi minister of state for foreign affairs, addressed threats from Democrats to freeze arm sales to Saudi Arabia and pull U.S. troops out of the country.
“What I can tell you is that the sale of defensive weapons to Saudi Arabia serves the interests of the U.S. and serves the interests of Saudi Arabia and serves the interests of security and stability in the Middle East,” he said.
“The presence of American forces in the Middle East has been here for many, many decades. They are here to protect the stability and security of the Middle East and the stability and security of the United States.”
“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the U.S. have had a very strong relationship for eight decades,” he continued. “They have been very close partners in fighting extremism and terrorism and maintaining stability and security in defending the region. And have been very close allies in terms of economic and trade, an investment and we hope that this relationship we’ll look forward to this relationship continuing for the next eight decades.”
OPEC+’s decision is even more embarrassing for the Biden regime considering they were secretly pressuring the Saudis to increase oil production to lower prices ahead of midterms – hoping to deliver a false victory for the American people.
