Video: Lyin’ Joe Biden Claims He Would Not Ban Fracking After Repeatedly Saying He Would End Fracking

Will the REAL Joe Biden please stand up?  On Monday, Democrat White House nominee Joe Biden went to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania where he spoke to a room with about seven reporters.  While there, he declared that he would not ban fracking.

“I am not banning fracking! No matter how many times Donald Trump lies about me!” he declared.

There’s only one small problem.

During the Democrat primaries, Biden repeatedly said he would end fracking.

Here’s his comment from Monday:

Yet, here he is during the primaries saying the exact opposite:

Not only does he not want fracking, he has said he wants to end the use of ALL fossil fuels and stop all drilling.  He has even suggested throwing fossil fuel executives in jail!

As Breitbart noted, Biden “explicitly promised to ban fracking during the second Democratic Party presidential primary debate on July 31, 2019, in Detroit, Michigan.”

The report adds:

This was Biden’s consistent position through March of this year. In the final debate of the primary, when he faced off against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Biden promised: “No new fracking.”

It was not the only time Biden made similar commitments.

He later tried to backtrack, telling Philadelphia-area ABC affiliate WNEP in July: “Fracking is not going to be on the chopping block.”

But his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), wants to ban fracking — everywhere.

Politicians can change their views, and it’s possible that Biden has flip-flopped on the issue, but his selection of Harris was widely seen as cementing his anti-fracking stance.

It’s not Donald Trump that told voters Biden was against fracking. Biden told voters himself.

Perhaps Biden should have just stayed in his basement…
