Laura Ingraham urged Wednesday that President Joe Biden declared a nationwide monument within the larger Grand Canyon so the value of uranium would stay high, in the end benefiting uranium exporter Kazakhstan. (Watch the video under.)
The Daily Beast stated the Fox News host was going “full Alex Jones” in her “outlandish conspiracy theory.”
Biden on Tuesday signed a national monument designation to guard Native lands north and south of Grand Canyon National Park, saying it was “good for the planet.”
Part of the measure’s intent is to dam uranium mining there. But Ingraham mined a sinister plot out of the on-brand transfer for the environmentally aware Biden administration.
“As long as Joe Biden is in power, a cloud of corruption hangs over this White House,” she stated, referring to Republicans’ unsuccessful efforts to link the president to Hunter Biden’s questionable enterprise dealings.
“Take his announcement yesterday, brazenly crippling America’s uranium mining capacity by making 1 million acres permanently off-limits for any type of mining,” she stated.
Noting that Biden referred to as the realm a “treasure,” she stated: “He has lots of treasures he needs to guard. But it’s simply extra inexperienced smoke as a result of uranium, that’s clearly discovered on this million acres, is important not only for nuclear energy crops, however for our weapons methods.
“And what nation — when you consider how that is all being cordoned off, can’t do any mining right here — is among the greatest beneficiaries of Joe’s brave choice? None apart from Kazakhstan, dwelling of one in all Biden’s most popular oligarchs and one in all his son’s sugar daddies. It’s now assured to stay the dominant provider of uranium to the United States with its 35% share,” she continued.
Ingraham wriggled out of constructing it a direct accusation by including, “Well, it all could really make perfect sense, couldn’t it? One of the most crooked families in American politics is responsible for making America permanently dependent on one of the most crooked countries on the face of the planet.”
