Was Biden lying about flip-flopping on fracking like Trump said he was?

    Yes, Biden has been all over the map on fracking.  He certainly supports it when he's campaigning in Pennsylvania, for example; but at other times he's against it.  Sometimes he says he's for it but wants to phase it out gradually (so, maybe, slowly against it?).

    Only if you believe the video clips are genuine.  You decide.

    Lying is such a strong word in politics as it is a lie only if you are intentionally deceiving to hurt someone illegally. Politians flip-flop as you call it looking at it as if you agree with him or not he hopes you will vote for him because he will do the best job.

    YES../. Biden has flipped flopped so much on so many things NO ONE knows what his agenda is..

    That is why the DEMS will take him out and put in Harris IF by some freak chance he wins.

    Depending on what media you consume that can be manipulated. The reason for the confusion on Biden's stance on fracking is because his stance is conditional.

    Biden said no fracking when it was on Native American preserves or when there was a slight threat to whether or not the fracking could contaminate natural water.

    He approves fracking in designated areas.

    Sure Biden has said the phrase no fracking but he has never said abolish fracking. Biden acknowledges the great opportunities that do come from fracking so he will not ban fracking but he will not approve it if it hurt communities or land. He's looking at fracking in terms of the situation.

    Trump took snippets or fragments of what Biden said to say Biden will ban fracking. True, Biden will ban fracking on federal land but false if Trump claiming that Biden is going to totally abolish fracking. In certain lands, Biden and other Democrats approve of fracking.

    FYI, this type of disinformation happens to all political figures regardless of a political party. Clips are sensationalized to push a purpose. This is an example of propaganda or the spread of disinformation. 

    Also, notice if anyone says, what I said wasn't true. These are biased people who would be consuming media from Biden's opponent. If they heard a Liberal person say what their belief is they'll respond, that's not true or you aren't normal, the average liberal person doesn't believe that. That's a person who's become so fully ingrained by sensationalized media where even if the reality appears in their face they will not believe it because of the news they consumed. They can't tell the difference between reality and produced, sensationalized media. I'm not saying this to say people who consume conservative media are arranged. The same thing happens with Liberal media. I'm saying political media is not reliable not matter what political spectrum they are on because they want ratings, get paid by somebody and political affiliation also give them power. Money, power and influence fueling political media should discredit them but people make it their world.

    Media takes a small group of crazy people and sensationalizes them to look even crazier for people who never mix with these people to say this is the enemy and this is who you should fear. that's how they get you addicted and loyal to their media. If there's a group of people you hate where you've never included them in your regular social circle then you were comprised and duped by the media. It's causes divisiveness and harm in this country. If you were outraged by some group you haven't come in contact with and spread that information, you participated in the problem. If you did that then you shouldn't listen to political news because you're doing the bidding of the devil in political form. That means, stop listening to the media because you don't know how to protect yourself from being hijacked.

    It is recorded on tape and it has been aired to the world.  Joe Biden will eventually stop fracking and oil production for Green Energy.  It is not good business to have high priced oil at any time.  Oil is needed for plastics, etc.

    No. He said no fracking on federal land. Trump lied through exaggeration by calling it all fracking. Biden still won’t allow fracking on federal land. I have no idea how he thinks they’re going to get the industry to catch the emissions, like he said, but his stance on fracking isn’t a flip flop. He’s changed positions on several things throughout his long career, often for the better, but that time isn’t one them.
