Montana elected leaders have reacted to President Biden’s announcement that the U.S is banning imports of Russian oil, gas, and coal, expressing their satisfaction with the move and pointing the world to the vast energy holdings the state has to offer. The ban is one of the few good things the president has done so far, in a response to the crisis that has so far been marred by delusion, unprecedented incompetence, and an inability to put into effect measures that would actually result in energy self-sufficiency.
There are solutions to be offered inward, but the President has no interest in pursuing them. One brief possibility is a greater reliance on the Bakken oil fields, which we announced were being reopened and being brought back online. Rather than implementing a national solution, the Biden administration is looking for an international one, trying to woo Iran and Venezuela to save us, trading in one tin-pot dictator for another, a salient fact Steve Daines pointed out:
