In the Democrat enclave of New York City, a conservative group has prominently displayed its desire for energy dependence, namely by putting up an enormous billboard in Times Square that demands for President Biden to say “no,” or “nyet” in Russian, to oil from Vladimir Putin.
According to the CEO of the group, Job Creators Network (JCN), it is critical for the Biden administration to “reverse course on [the] socialist energy policies that have put [the nation] in this mess we are facing today” in order to begin “reversing the damage done.”
In a statement to Newsmax, the CEO of JCN, Alfredo Ortiz, proclaims, “it’s time to drill-baby-drill.”
“Produce more, pay less. It’s that simple, Joe,” Ortiz added.
Ortiz also observed that reopening American energy independence, which had been initiated under Trump, constitutes one of the most attractive first steps that Biden can take in order to begin “putting record high inflation in check.”
This step also remains “completely in [Biden’s] control,” Ortiz continued, adding that the president should really stop feeling so fearful of AOC, alongside other progressives, especially considering the current aggression from Putin.
Ortiz’s billboard is rather abrupt and to the point, featuring a massive image of Putin with the following message: “Hey Vlad. Screw You! Nyet to Russian Oil. Time for American oil. Drill More, Pay Less. C’Mon Joe. This ain’t hard.”
In many ways, this ad directly brings to mind the policies of former President Trump, who long called for American energy independence. Not only did Trump call for energy independence, but he enacted a number of policies designed to achieve this objective.
In sharp contrast, Biden empowered Russia from his first day in office, namely with “the cancellation of the Keystone XL Pipeline, [alongside] other measures that took [the nation] from energy independence to energy dependence on foreign oil,” as noted by Ortiz, including a dependence on Russian oil.
Ultimately, Ortiz blasts AOC’s “Green New Deal” as one that “as created havoc on the U.S. economy,” including “the highest inflation numbers we have seen in 40 years.”
