Domestic gas production is up since January 2021. It cratered during 2020.

Oil exports are down since January 2021.

Inflation and higher energy prices are global, following the bounceback in demand after COVID19, China's lockdowns which affected their exports, and following Russia's war in Ukraine and Russia cutting off energy supplies along with boycotts of Russian energy. Russia is the third biggest energy provider in the world.

American troops are no longer dying in Afghanistan this year like they were for the previous 20 years under Trump, Obama, and Bush. The U.S. troop presence there never should have went as long as it did. And everyone else knew for months to get out of Afghanistan in advance of the withdrawal (set by Trump and continued by Biden) and some refused to leave and waited until the last minute. In 2018 Trump pressured Pakistan to free the Taliban and their leader from prison in Pakistan to cut a deal and they took over Afghanistan bit by bit and he made a deal with them. But it was the time to leave, bigger threats from Russia and China should have the priority as we have seen.

Biden has not welcomed all undocumented migrants and has in fact told them to not to come.



However, Cubans - like anyone else - have a chance to apply for asylum but the system is backlogged.
