Even though America is threatening Russia with sanctions they still pay Putin $70 million per day for oil which helps them in their attack of Ukraine.
Consider the absurdity of the situation… Joe Biden is making a show of strength by threatening Russia with sanctions in response to Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine. At the same time, Americans pay around $70 million per day to Russia for oil imports.
In other words, we’ve sent Putin about a half-billion dollars throughout his war against Ukraine over the last seven days!
What exactly is going on here?
On the one hand, Biden claims that sanctions are harming Vlad, while on the other, we’re handing him $70 million a day!

This is insane. However, it is true…
“In 2021, the U.S. imported an average of 209,000 barrels per day (bpd) of crude oil and 500,000 bpd of other petroleum products from Russia.”
And, last I looked, oil is currently valued at $106 a barrel, with the war in Ukraine being one of the reasons for its high price, thus…. So Vlad is profiting more from his oil by fighting a neighbor!
How fantastic is that?
Isn’t it a sweet racket?
And that fact comes straight from Joe Biden’s mouth. Because it was Biden who stepped into power and promptly canceled an American oil pipeline.
It was Biden who ended the Trump administration’s energy independence by revoking lucrative oil leases, among other things. And for what purpose? Take a look around…
We continue to use the same amount of oil. The only difference is that we’re paying a lot more for it, and we’re also contributing to Putin’s military operation.
Although we don’t have to, we send Russia $70 million each day. All we have to do here at home is drill, dig, and frack.
How can Biden and the Democrats scream bloody murder over the war in Ukraine when it was their irrational policies that enabled it?
But it isn’t just in the United States. It’s also those European Union leftists who are shutting down operating nuclear power reactors just to transfer billions to Putin for the oil, natural gas, and coal his country holds.
Not only would Putin be too bankrupt to wage a war if the Western world just used its own energy resources, but he would also lose power over a West that now has to rely on a Russia to keep its lights on.
So keep all of this in mind while Joe tries to be harsh with Putin. The truth is that when given the option of developing our own resources or feeding Russia the amount of $70 million per day, Biden decided to pay Putin.
