China is now buying oil and gas from Venezuela, Middle East, and Russia is likely the next. Biden has shut down substantial oil and gas production in the USA to the point that we will not be self sufficient and will have to buy our shortfall from which country and at what cost? Gas is up more than 50 cents a gallon and is expected to rise more. When are the Elite Republicans going to stand up to Biden and his cronies? After bankrupting the lower and middle classes?
Yes, talk to Japan about when China brought them to their knees in 2010 when the CCP cut back their Rare Earth Metals. Rare Earth Metals can be processed environmentally friendly in the USA, but is expected to be costly. Rare Earth Metals need to be designated as a "National Security Issue", and thus, we need to pay what is necessary to protect our national interests.
What did O'Bama do about it after Japan took the hit in 2010? When Trump came into office, he immediately started investigating Rare Earth Metals. If the radical Dems had not wasted all the energy and money going after Trump, he likely would have pursued Rare Earth Metals more seriously. The talk has to stop, and something needs to move forward in making the USA self sufficient in Rare Earth Metals like what Trump did in making us self sufficient in oil and gas.
