Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) appeared on Sean Hannity’s show on Fox News Friday night to discuss the energy independence issue in connection to the Russian invasion and took a stinging slap at the Biden administration leaving weapons behind in Afghanistan, saying they would have done far more good in Ukraine.

“I, for the life of me, cannot understand why it’s off the table, not even something to discuss Jim, increasing production of energy in this country, getting back to the energy independence that Biden inherited and being a net exporter and immediately helping out our NATO and western European allies with energy needs, instead of pushing them even further. Why not use the one sanction that would be effective? All the others are meaningless without that one,” the “Hannity” host asserted.

“Yeah, and Sean, why not increase production as you talked about earlier here in the United States. And the reason Joe Biden won’t do it is because his party won’t let him,” Jordan responded.

“There’s no reason… there’s no way he’s going to open up ANWAR and have the Keystone Pipeline come back because his party doesn’t want that. I sat in a committee hearing just a few months ago where Ro Khanna, a Democratic member from California, with oil executives, the CEOs of these big oil and gas companies here in the United States, he badgered every single one of them and said, ‘Will you pledge to decrease production this year?’ I think they want $8 gas,” the GOP lawmaker bluntly charged.

“So, this is the problem. It all comes back to energy and bad decisions made over the last year have put us in this situation and God bless the Ukrainian people. The character and the courage they are showing… I think frankly, Sean, it’s a reflection of their leader President Zelenskyy. I’ve not met President Zelenskyy but during the impeachment, the first impeachment three years ago, you felt like you got to know him as we study about the phone call and everything else, you could tell this is a different leader. This was a guy of courage. This guy was committed to doing the best for his country. He’s a good man, God bless him,” he added.

Jordan astutely pointed out that the stockpiles of weapons and artillery left behind in Afghanistan would be far more useful in Ukraine right now helping the citizens there fight for their freedom against the invading murderous Russians.

“Sean, think about this… Dan just talked about weapons and what we need to get to the Ukrainians, it would’ve been nice if that $85 billion of weapons and equipment we left in Afghanistan, if that was in — some of that was in Ukraine right now to help the Ukrainian people. That’d be nice,” Jordan contended.

“It’d be nice if the State Department would be focused on real diplomacy versus when they sent out the email that said, oh, what pronoun do you want to use? And, oh, we’re going to have gender-neutral passports now, for goodness sake. So, that’s the problem, bad decisions early on that put us in this terrible position. And the Ukrainian people feel it as we speak,” he proclaimed.
