Ted Cruz Introduces American Energy Freedom Act – Liberals Outraged

Ted Cruz introduces American freedom act for all Americans

Senator Ted Cruz has introduced the Energy Freedom Act, which will make the U.S. fully energy independent – much to the horror of the Democrats.

The new law would work by “accelerating federal permitting for energy projects and pipelines, mandating new onshore and offshore oil and gas lease sales, approving pending LNG export licenses, and generally speeding up solar, wind, and geothermal development.”

Additionally, under the bill, the U.S. president would no longer be able to unilaterally enact “leasing bans on federal lands.”

“In the past year with Joe Biden as president, the United States has lost its status as a net petroleum exporter, after achieving that goal in 2019 for the first time since 1949,” Cruz declared in a statement, pointing to Biden’s decision to issue “illegal and hostile orders aimed at American oil and gas producers, which have increased energy prices and directed profits to other oil exporting countries.”

Breitbart.com reports: “These policies have poured billions of dollars into countries such as Russia and Iran, which use those funds to attack our allies and undermine the national security of America,” he said, adding further perspective by pointing out that Biden “has imposed more restrictions on U.S. oil companies than he has on Russian oil.”

“With Iran, he has looked the other way as the regime busted through sanctions and raised their exports to more than one million barrels per day for the first time in almost three years,” he said, summing up the Energy Freedom Act as a way to reverse Biden’s actions.

“This bill won’t cost taxpayers a dime, but it will provide the United States billions in revenue in the coming years by expediting permitting, leasing, safe new pipelines, and exports, and providing much needed regulatory certainty,” he said, emphasizing it would “put a stop to the Biden administration’s sabotage of the American energy industry, and Congress should take it up without delay.”

Biden’s decision to move America away from its status as energy independent has taken greater focus in recent weeks as gas prices soar and the conflict in Ukraine intensifies. Critics have pointed to Biden’s mistake of relying on “rogue” parts of the world for its energy supply.

“Their whole society is hollowed out except for that energy,” Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) said of Russia during a press conference this week. “And so if you want to hit them, hit them at the gas pump. Hit them with energy.”

“[Biden] has stepped on the necks of our domestic energy here in the United States. We should have Keystone reactivated in the United States. He should get rid of the ban on producing in federal lands, and he should welcome more domestic energy production,” he continued. “We were before Biden took office, for the first time in any of our lifetimes, actually energy independent. Putin didn’t matter.”


  1. Harry and meghan vote democrat. At the moment The family were Republican when the Bushs, descendants of Mary Queen of Scots, were in The Quenn was just a few days ago presented with the Crown of Scotland for some reason You know traditionally Catholic/ French /Scotland. I wonder what it means.

  2. A common sense approach to inflation. The US should strive to become self-sufficient in all our critical industries which reinforces our tax base.

    • The price of all commodities is determined by supply and demand in world markets, not just the US.
      US domestic producers will just charge more, if supply is constrained.

      • Hopefully this will spur production in the Bakken. They were forced to shut down many operations when the price of oil was low, I believe their breakeven price was around $50/bbl.

  3. It`s all just one more big scam of americans as in all that they would have to do is build geohydro power plants as do many parts of the world almost free energy clean and harmless.Even MIT says it is the best energy to use and would power most of the world for the next 200,000 years or so.But this about drilling for gas and oil for their lobbyist controllers as puppet goverment actors with 1% masterSS
