The Biden Administration Pleads With Saudi Arabia to Delay the Cut In Oil Production -- FOR ONE MONTH ONLY. JUST TO GET THROUGH THE MIDTERMS.

Quid Pro Quo?

Javier Blas

US President Joe Biden signals fresh action to fight oil (and gasoline) prices:

"The price of gas is still too high and we need to keep working to bring it down," Biden said at an event in Los Angeles. "I'll have more to say about that next week," he added, without elaboration.

Oil prices were already climbing again, and OPEC+ voted to cut production.

Biden has drained the Strategic Petroleum Reserve -- intended to be tapped in cases of war, if our supply lines get cut -- down to almost empty, so that well is literally dry.

What's left?

Why, go begging to the Saudis again.

But with a fresh ask.

Biden begged them to delay that production cut -- but for one month only.

Just to get him through the midterms.

Says who?

Says the Saudi Foreign Minister, that's says who.

The next part of the letter states that OPEC+ is, of course, much more than Saudi Arabia; it represents twenty four countries. OPEC represents 13; OPEC+ adds in 11 more. It's like CNN+ except it produces less natural gas than Brian Stelter and Chris Wallace.

Their point being that Saudi Arabia cannot bend twenty-three other countries to their will. Oil prices were falling due to the recession; they wanted to increase the prices.

It's the next part of the letter that is... treasonous? Biden begged a foreign dignitary for a favor that would not help the United States -- what does a one-month pause do? -- but would only help the Democrat Party.


The "US Administration" pleaded for a delay in the cut in production for just one month? Why?

Why just one month?

You know why.

This scumbag hive of traitors asked Saudi Arabia to do a special favor not for the US, but for the Democrat Party. This is just about the midterms.

This is impeachable.

If Trump got impeached for a phone call to Ukraine -- then Biden must be impeached for this phone call.

Update: Matt Margolis dots the i's and crosses the t's on the point I was making: the "Biden" Administration is openly threatening Saudi Arabia for not playing ball.

So, what kind of leverage did Joe Biden have with the Kingdom to pull off this failed quid pro quo? Well, it's curious that on Wednesday it was reported that since Biden's pleas were rejected, the White House is "examining" all aspects of our country's relationship with the Saudis, including arms sales.

"There is a range of interests and values that are implicated in our relationship with that country," Biden's national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, said Wednesday. "The President will examine all of that. But one question he's going to ask is: Is the nature of the relationship serving the interest and values of the United States and what changes would make it better serve the interests and values?"

This sounds suspiciously like Joe Biden is threatening an ally with cutting off military aid unless they do something to help Biden politically here at home. Quid pro quo.

Plus, below: Biden is now making the quid pro quo clear, threatening "action" against Saudi Arabia for having defied his demand that they make a trillion-dollar in-kind donation to the DNC.

He's now threatening Saudi Arabia:
