Dem Congresswoman disavows Biden’s promise to end oil industry

Biden continually alienates large swathes of the population in his efforts to score points on Donald Trump, placing Democrat lawmakers in a difficult position.

Case in point, Democrat Rep. Xochitl Torres Small (D-NM) was forced to publicly stab Biden in the back after he pledged to “transition from the oil industry” during Thursday’s presidential debate.

Small represents a swing district in the third-largest oil-producing state in the union and is facing an uphill battle toward re-election as the Democrat party’s “green” agenda doesn’t win lawmakers any favors in these hard-fought districts.

Biden shocked many of his blue-collar supporters by declaring in the final presidential debate his support for ending the oil industry:

Trump: Would you close down the oil industry?

Biden: I would transition from the oil industry, yes.

Trump: Oh, that’s a big statement.

Biden: It is a big statement.

Moderator Kristen Welker: Why would you do that?

Biden: Because the oil industry pollutes. It has to be replaced by renewable energy over time. And I’d stop giving federal subsidies to the oil industry. He won’t give federal subsidies to solar and wind. Why are we giving it to the oil industry?

Small hurriedly issued a statement on Twitter criticizing Biden’s position on the matter, pointing out that “demonizing” the oil industry isn’t a good solution to the purported climate issue.

“I disagree with VP Biden’s statement tonight,” Small wrote on Twitter. “Energy is part of the backbone of New Mexico’s economy. We need to work together to promote responsible energy production and stop climate change, not demonize a single industry.”

I will continue to stand up to my party when they’re out of touch with the reality on the ground in #NM02,” she assured her constituents.

Biden has come under fire multiple times over the last several months for his position on energy production in the US, at times claiming he will ban the controversial oil extraction practice of fracking — a massive industry with huge economic implications — and at other times claiming that he would never consider the notion of banning the practice.

Biden’s refusal to commit to an energy position has much of blue-collar America on edge, however, a fact that the Trump campaign hasn’t hesitated to highlight.

This shows you how bad Biden really is, he setup his own son to take the fall, if things fell apart. I can hear Hunter calling daddy help me. He hasn’t figured out that was his daddy that set him up.
That is why Biden claims that he never got any cash from foreign sources. It was paid to Hunters business, laundered thru banks, before Joe ever touch it.

It isn’t oil that they want to destroy, it is our way of life. They want to turn the country into a communist [email protected] state over which they will rule. The dems lost all of their [email protected] when they lost the civil war, now they want them back. You can be a dem, but unless you are a politician or an oligarch, you will still be a [email protected] The dems have lost all sibilance of humanity, they have lost their way.

We don’t deserve to be controlled by the liberal agenda just because a bunch of illiterate fools vote for them. That is why we have an electoral college to protect us from that. We will only get that if Biden is elected which will never happen even if he lives to be 1,000! THANK GOD!

The problem with Smalls comment is that she will say that now in order to appease but when it comes time to do away with oil she’ll support it! That’s just what these leftist politicos do!

Have we not already learned enough about the left to know that they will never tell us the truth about their intent if elected? They will tell you what you want to hear. You vote for them. Then once they are in office, they will do exactly the opposite. That will also apply to their energy plan. I have no doubt that the Green New Deal will be implemented and it won’t be long until they will end fracking, fossil fuels and re-set all of the job killing regulations that were put into place by Obama. I suspect that Bernie and AOC will head this up and that will begin a job killing, economy killing, nation destroying era by the left.

He lied so much during the debate. Could not make up his mind on Fracking. #1 He says he is will not stop it, BUT, says he will end the oil industry. #2: Says he has never talked to son about his job and then says he has given him advise and took him to CHINA, ABOARD AIR FORCE TWO, and met with the Chinese, just days prior to Junior getting a deal worth OVER $1.5,000,000,000. And receiving a salary of MORE (in a week) than the average American makes in a year

My husband and I voted Tuesday. We are both staunch Conservatives. We voted for President Trump and Republicans wherever they were a choice – if no Republicans then Libertarian. If only Democrat then that was left blank. Everyone I know except my genius/idiot nephew and two ex-daughters-in law are voting for Donald J Trump. I am also Catholic and though the church cannot and does not tell you how to vote they advise to vote your conscientious. No Christian can in good conscientious vote for a party that supports abortion or euthanasian. Un fortunately there are some who do. Make sure you vote and if you have friends who are hard-hearted, pray for them.

Let’s not put a perjury spewing, liar and corrupt politician in the White House. People claim Hunter is using is dad’s name and position to enrich himself. It appears Joe is using Hunter to enrich his wallet. Instead of taking millions from his son, he should make sure he is installed in a high end rehab center so he can get the help he desperately needs. The entire family is broken.

On top of all the lies, Bidens answers were scripted …you could tell because he was a bit ” too” ready and composed. As soon as he got a bit pressured, he fell apart and the true agenda started to show. His statement about oil guaranteed his loss. Already voted…straight Republican, something Ive never done before.
