Polls show the political winds have shifted to the GOP’s favor.
Joe Biden acted in desperation.
And Joe Biden got caught asking someone to help him rig the 2022 election who took everyone by surprise.
When Donald Trump ripped up Barack Obama’s Iran nuclear deal and worked with Saudi Arabia against them in the Middle East, the Left erupted into a frenzy.
And in 2020, Biden campaigned on a promise of treating Saudi Arabia as a “pariah” over allegations that the Crown Price had controversial journalist Jamaal Kashoggi murdered in 2018.
Biden and foreign policy hawks wanted to restore Iran as the dominant player in the Middle East.
But despite his promises, Biden traveled to Saudi Arabia to beg the Crown Prince to increase oil production.
However, after he spent the past two years attacking Saudi Arabia, the Crown Prince rejected Biden’s request and refused to do him any favors.
Biden responded by threatening Saudi Arabia with “consequences” for slashing oil production by two-million barrels per day.
But the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia released a jaw-dropping statement accusing Joe Biden of soliciting a foreign government to help in our elections by delaying the cut in oil production until after the Midterms.

Biden worried OPEC slashing oil production would be the ultimate “October surprise,” as it would cause gas prices to rise heading into Election Day.
Pentagon Spokesman John Kirby admitted that the Biden administration tried to strongarm the Saudis to not announce a production cut until after the elections.
“In recent weeks, the Saudis conveyed to us – privately and publicly – their intention to reduce oil production, which they knew would increase Russian revenues and blunt the effectiveness of sanctions. That is the wrong direction,” Kirby stated. “We presented Saudi Arabia with analysis to show that there was no market basis to cut production targets, and that they could easily wait for the next OPEC meeting to see how things developed.”
As punishment for failing to boost the Democrats’ chances in the Midterm elections, Kirby also admitted that Biden could withhold weapons to Saudi Arabia.
“Other OPEC nations communicated to us privately that they also disagreed with the Saudi decision, but felt coerced to support Saudi’s direction,” Kirby continued. “As the President has said, we are reevaluating our relationship with Saudi Arabia in light of these actions, and will continue to look for signs about where they stand in combating Russian aggression.”
Joe Biden clearly engaged in a form of quid pro quo, which will likely lead to more impeachment talk.
