Ridgewood NJ, I never thought I would say that I agree with Senator Bob Menendez but it happened. After 14 months, a “prominent national Democrat” has attacked the lunatic energy policies coming from the Biden Administration . On Monday Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, NJ Democratic Senator Bob Menendez made the following statement in a press release:
“The Biden administration [attempts to] purchase Venezuelan oil, risks perpetuating a humanitarian crisis that has destabilized Latin America and the Caribbean for an entire generation. Nicolás Maduro is a cancer to our hemisphere and we should not breathe new life into his reign of torture and murder.
As such, I would strongly oppose any action that fills the pockets of regime oligarchs with oil profits while Maduro continues to deprive Venezuelans of basic human rights, freedoms, and even food…
The democratic aspirations of the Venezuelan people, much like the resolve and courage of the people of Ukraine, are worth much more than a few thousand barrels of oil.
