MINOT, N.D. — This may be on of the most colossally stupid things I’ve ever seen a president do in my lifetime.
And I, like all of you, just lived through the Trump administration.
President Joe Biden’s administration is calling for an increase in oil production.
Not in America, mind you.
Within our borders, his administration is still pursuing a generally hostile policy posture toward domestic oil and gas producers, including a moratorium on federal land leases that is costing North Dakota, in particular, billions. One of his first acts, as president, was to waylay the Keystone XL pipeline which would have carried both American producers and our friendly Canadian neighbors up north.
