Flowery Branch, GA: This morning, Russian military forces breached the sovereign borders of Ukraine in a show of unprovoked and unjustified aggression. U.S. Senate Candidate in Georgia Josh Clark released the following statement:
“It’s no secret — Vladimir Putin is and always has been a brutal bully and dictator. Today’s assault on Ukraine is a perfect picture of what happens when bullies go unchecked.
“The feckless Biden Administration has offered lip service and sanctions, but neither of these things alone will hold the Russian bully at bay. The United States needs strong, steady leadership in the White House, otherwise our influence on the world stage is cast aside and mocked, as Putin has done to Biden’s lackluster ‘warnings.’
“Sanctions alone will not deter this brutal bully. Biden must unleash the full weight of the America energy industry which will allow us to regain our energy independence and replace Russia as the supplier of cheap, clean American gas to Europe! In the same way Putin knows our weak leadership won’t challenge him, he knows Europe won’t stop him because they need Russia’s gas and oil. The United States should take away Russia’s chief leverage by ending Biden’s crippling restrictions on our American energy market.”
“It’s time to drill, frack, and put the boundless energy resources of American into high gear. This would serve not only to drop prices at the pump for Americans, but also put us in a position to become the world’s leading exporter of oil and natural gas. Imagine the United States supplying Europe and ending their dependence on Russian! Without revenue from oil and gas exports, Putin would be brought to his knees.”
“Thanks to President Trump’s bold leadership, we know it’s possible to be energy independent. Expanding production and export of our natural resources unleashes the economic engine of America and ensures the free nations of the world aren’t beholden to bullies and dictators like Vladimir Putin. It takes strong leadership to make such a move. We need change in the White House and in the United States Senate to get it done. That’s why I am running — to end corrupt, globalist politics in Washington and return American government to the policies that make We the People stronger here at home and across the globe.”
