If there was one word to describe Joe Biden’s performance as POTUS, it would be bleak. Since taking office in January 2021, America has been in a state of steady decline and for the past year, Americans have had to put up with tyrannical mandates, inflation and supply chain shortages.
To add insult to injury the price of gas has been steadily rising. And rising. And rising. Biden’s moral victory of cutting off the import of Russian oil will only exasperate gas prices.
The national average price per gallon of fuel has hit record-breaking heights and now sits at over $4.10 per gallon. Just over a year ago in January, gas was under $2.25 per gallon.
GasBuddy.com reported: “The national average price of gasoline in the U.S. today broke the existing record, rewriting the all-time high to today’s $4.104 per gallon.”
What is our feckless leader doing to ease the strain for working Americans? Nothing. He says there is nothing he can do. His “solution” is to work out a deal with other oil producing nations, that don’t necessarily have the best track records for treating their citizens humanely.
Venezuela’s leader, Nicolás Maduro is apparently now bosom buddies with Biden, as the administration sent a delegation to the South American country to talk oil.
Lest everyone forget Maduro’s policies have starved his people. The average weight loss in Venezuela for people has been 9 pounds in the last year.
Iran and Saudi Arabia are also on Biden’s go-to list to replace Russia’s oil. We stopped buying their oil years ago because of their atrocious human rights issues and hate for our country. Both countries treat women like second class citizens and their citizens regularly declare “death to America.”
Even some Democrats can’t get behind the new friendship and while speaking to reporters, Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) said that the United States shouldn’t be helping countries who don’t share American values and added that America could boost its own oil production, which would create more job opportunities for Americans.
Tester said, “Well, we shouldn’t be advancing other countries that don’t share our values. So, I think that the opportunity here is to do it domestically, create jobs here, deal with it domestically, and also see if we can help Europe out, too.”
When President Joe Biden was questioned by reporters about the soaring gas prices, he simply shrugged in reply. This coming only hours after promising he would do whatever it took to lower them – except of course if that means reopening the Keystone pipeline, creating more American jobs, returning America to an energy independent nation like it was under President Trump.
“I’m going to do everything I can to minimize Putin’s price hike here at home,” he said during a speech at the White House.
Obviously, Biden doesn’t actually have the full mental capacity to be multi-tasking the American economy and handling a possible nuclear war with Russia while keeping an eye on the real problem child that is China, so his reaction isn’t exactly shocking.
Nor does it inspire confidence.
“Can’t do much right now,” he told reporters. “Russia is responsible.”
That’s a lie. Gas prices have been rising steadily ever since Biden took office and gutted the fossil fuel industry with his executive orders. If Russia was responsible then prices would only have started to rise in the last two weeks since they invaded Ukraine and we started levying sanctions on them.
But Joe’s not going to take the blame for completely destroying the country, naturally it would be someone else’s fault. A few weeks ago, it was COVID’s fault – now it’s Putin.
The casual comments came while Biden was on his way to a veterans’ health care event in Texas. When asked by reporters if he had a message for Americans who are feeling the effects of the gas price hike, Biden replied, “They’re going to go up.” Bleak.
It’s very clear at this point that the Biden administration has abandoned the American country.
White House Press Secretary, Jen Psaki, when pressed in the president’s plan to lower cost, Psaki remained vague.
“I’m not going to give you a nod or a wink to any specifics,” she said, adding that, “there are a range of options on the table.”
Biden also doubled down on his refusal to lift environmental restrictions on fossil fuels, which would spark oil production.
“Loosening environmental regulations or pulling back clean energy investment won’t — let me explain — won’t — will not lower energy prices for families,” he said.
According to President Biden, we should all just buy ourselves an electric car. Tesla’s start at $60,000. How many families can afford to buy not only one, but two or three electric cars? Not to mention they can’t take you more than two and a half hours length from your home without needing to double back to charge it.
One thing that hasn’t been addressed by the neo-environmentalists, is how will the power plants be powered, to charge that “clean” electric car?
Coal? Nuclear power? Doesn’t seem very clean at all when you factor in the energy needed to produce electricity. Another thing that gets forgotten, are the highly toxic and unrecyclable batteries used in said electric cars. And do you know where we get the rare Earth minerals to make those batteries? China. Do we really want to be even more dependent on them?
What is 100 percent clear, is Biden is driving America off a cliff at high speed and there’s no way to slam on the brakes.
