How overbearing "environmental" regulations led to the war in Ukraine

Published in Blog on February 28, 2022 by Article V Patriot

There are many reasons the West is reluctant to impose truly disastrous sanctions on Russia or send troops into Ukraine. Some are legitimate. Others, not so much.

But one reason is likely more important than any other: oil. 

America and Europe are dependent on Russia for oil. Russia is America's third-largest oil importer and Europe's largest importer. If Russia were to cut off its oil supply, millions of people would be forced to pay astronomical energy prices or simply lose electricity altogether. 

Why do Europe and the United States import vast amounts of fossil fuels from a geopolitical enemy? Environmental "regulations."

This administration has kowtowed to the environmental lobby to make it more difficult for American oil companies to produce. One of Biden's first actions as president was to end the Keystone Pipeline, which, as Texas Rep. Dan Crenshaw points out, would have covered all the barrels of oil we import from Russia. 

Right now, the Biden administration is refusing to approve applications for companies to export more American oil overseas. These exports would help the world be less dependent on Russian oil, which would in turn give Russia less leverage over other countries. 

Big-government "elites" in Washington are dead-set on ending oil production in the United States. They believe we should move exclusively to "clean energy" and import the oil we need from other countries like Russia and Saudi Arabia. 

There's just one problem: when other countries control the oil supply, they hold enormous power over world events. As we've seen in Ukraine, they use this power to pursue their own agendas at the expense of innocent lives.

The solution is to once again turn the United States into an energy-producing superpower. We should hold all the cards when it comes to oil and natural gas production. Full stop.

But we'll never do that with the federal government in charge. The environmental lobby is too powerful in Washington to rely on our federal politicians, and we can't shrink and expand our energy production every time a new party controls Washington. 

That's why we need an Article V Convention of States. A Convention of States is called and controlled by the states and has the power to propose constitutional amendments. These amendments can limit federal power across the board, including how much the federal government can regulate energy and "the environment."

If we want to reclaim our place as the world's supplier of energy, we have to get the feds out of the oil and gas business. The best way to do that is by calling the first-ever Article V Convention of States.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
