Biden worried about gas prices? He must eliminate OPEC.

Under US law, OPEC is an illegal organization and always has been. Since 1974 Antitrust Procedures and Penalties Law, criminal antitrust offenses prosecuted as a felony. Get smart with the Justice Department’s antitrust department, and you could be sent to prison for 10 years. The Department of Justice routinely recruits INTERPOL to arrest and extradite aliens who violate US antitrust law. Please continue with us in silence while I read aloud the Ministry of Justice Bulletin Primer antitrust For Law Enforcement Officials, p. 10, “Suing International Cartels”:

The Department of Antitrust has been incredibly successful in obtaining jurisdiction over foreign defendants either voluntarily or by extradition, and since the first foreign antitrust defendant served time in a U.S. prison in 1999, nearly a hundred foreign defendants have served prison sentences in The United States to participate in – or obstruct investigations – international antitrust cartels.

(Those mermaids must have been very talkative.) Bumble Bee had to pay a $25 million fine, and StarKist, who was in the business of setting prices, had to pay a $100 million fine.

Courts have also cited the “state law” doctrine, which states that US judges must dispose of disputes involving foreign countries, even though that Supposed to allow business to be sued, very.

Congress has tried for two decades to eliminate sovereign immunity and loopholes of the state; In this age of partisan warfare, the There is no law for the production and export of oil (NOPEC) remains a reassuring island of bipartisan consensus. But your noob doesn’t get enough votes to pass; She was the closest during President George W. Bush’s oil-friendly administration, but Bush killed her with a veto threat. Republican Senator Chuck Grassley Reintroduced The last Senate NOPEC bill in March with Democratic sponsors Amy Klobuchar and Pat Leahy, and on April 20 an accompanying bill sponsored by Republican Representative Steve Chabot cleansed The House Judiciary Committee on a vote. Previous supporters of the legislation (before they became president) include Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
