Congressman Dan Crenshaw blasted the Biden administration on social media Wednesday; accusing the White House of “reaching a whole new level of stupid” after begging OPEC to produce more oil.
“Reaching a whole new level of stupid, the Biden administration asks OPEC (foreign oil) to increase production, while making every possible attempt to destroy CLEANER American oil and gas. Not just stupid, but anti-American,” posted Crenshaw on Twitter.

National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan released a statement Wednesday urging OPEC to increase production to help lower oil costs; raising even more questions over the Biden administration’s recent regulation’s on America’s energy sector.
“Higher gasoline costs, if left unchecked, risk harming the ongoing global recovery. The price of crude oil has been higher than it was at the end of 2019, before the onset of the pandemic,” writes Sullivan.
“President Biden has made clear that he wants Americans to have access to affordable, reliable energy, including at the pump. Although we are not a party to OPEC, the United States will always speak to international partners regarding issues of significance that affect our national economic and security affairs,” he adds.

The request comes months after the Biden Administration canceled a major American pipeline during his first days in office.
“Longtime oil and gas industry workers David and Kristina Dickerson are criticizing President Joe Biden’s executive order canceling the Keystone XL Pipeline. They say the order, which displaced them from the project, is threatening their economic stability,” reported Fox News in February.
“I feel pretty betrayed,” David, who has worked in the oil and gas industry for 31 years, added.
“We’ve had to actually dip into our retirement and our 401k, just trying to survive until something like this come up,” David said. “We’ve been depending on this to happen and it just all of a sudden got ripped out from under us and we’re not going to be able to do it now.”
“It’s a good thought, but it’s not a well-thought-out plan. They haven’t got it perfect,” David said. “And we’re still dependent on fossil fuel. We’re going to use this crude oil no matter what.”
CRENSHAW CRUSH: Dan Crenshaw Calls AOC, Bernie’s ‘Green New Deal’ a ‘3rd Grade Science Project’
Congressman Dan Crenshaw unloaded on the Democrats’ ‘Green New Deal’ Thursday night; describing the far-left proposal as nothing more than a “3rd grade science project” that isn’t based on “science or engineering.”
“Then why didn’t you vote ‘YES’ for the Green New Deal when it came to the Senate Floor? Maybe because it’s not a plan. Or a good deal. Or even ‘Green.’ It’s a 3rd grade science project that isn’t based in science or engineering,” posted Crenshaw on social media.

“And more importantly on this stuff, from a policy perspective, the Green New Deal is not an actual proposal. There is no actual plan in the Green New Deal. It just says, ‘Everything is going to be wind and solar and we’re going to get rid of airplanes and cows.’ That’s not a plan. That’s not a serious proposal,” he told Fox News.
