WASHINGTON – The Biden administration is willing to move ahead with a ban on Russian oil imports into the United States without the participation of allies in Europe, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters, after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. President Joe Biden is expected to hold a video conference call with the leaders of France, Germany and the United Kingdom on Monday as his administration continues to seek their support for a ban on imports.

The White House is also negotiating with congressional leaders who are working on fast-tracking legislation banning Russian imports, a move that is forcing the administration to work on an expedited timeline, a source told Reuters. A senior US official told Reuters that no final decision has been made but “it is likely just the US if it happens.”

Germany, the biggest buyer of Russian crude oil, has rejected plans to ban energy imports. Berlin is accelerating its plans to expand its use of alternative energy sources but cannot halt imports of Russian energy overnight, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said on Monday.

This is all such a mess. Maybe I need to buy a Tesla vehicle? Lol
That’s exactly what they want us to do! My question is how are people, like the average me, going to afford another car like this? Is the bumbler going to give out electric cars to the illegals and expect the taxpayers to pony up for ours and theirs? Do these idjits think we can rely on solar and electricity alone?

if he would open our pipelines back up it would drop the cost and stop dependance on Russia for oil with the inflated price de jour for the day. What’s it going to take to get this done? We need to push our local politicians for this lest they loose their job this year. God willing that we are part of an electron that I pray for daily, that is honest.

When I see liberal talking heads on TV pontificating on the evils of oil and yakking about those little battery cars, I usually shoot both of my bird fingers at them. Same with the race baiters.
