Do not rejoice when you see gas prices going down. That might be a funny thing to start with, knowing how high gas prices are a critical factor in our crumbling economy.
The low gas prices are nothing more than a shot of tequila. It’s fun to drink and party, but you regret it the next day. That is the mantra of Democrats in general. They sell these ideas that sound great on paper, but they ignore human action and motivation.
The reason why the gas prices drop is not that we are becoming energy independent. If we were, the tone of this article would be positive. What is happening is that Biden is tapping into our reserves meant for a crisis. He is draining us to the point where America will be bone dry.
On “The Five,” Jesse Watters said:
He’s a reckless economic illiterate, and he’s going to cause a lot of pain to the American people because we’re going to need those reserves full at some point, and before then we’re going to have to buy back and restock at about $100 a barrel. And what do you think that’s going to do to the world price of oil? He doesn’t understand it’s set by the world. He thinks, Fred, that owns the gas station at the corner, sets the price of oil. If you’re not going to unleash American energy, you have to butter up the Saudis. And so far, he’s cozied up to their biggest enemy, the Iranians. He doesn’t even send them any arms packages like most presidents do. He called them, he called the crown prince a killer and tried to ostracize them. And he’s always talking about the Green New Deal, the Green New Deal. You need a little more finesse when everybody’s getting slammed at the pump.
Speaking of the Saudis, the OPEC+ alliance will cut 2 million barrels in oil production a day. Saudi Arabia and Russia lead the OPEC+ alliance. Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states have remained “neutral” regarding the Russia v. Ukraine war.
“Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal quietly invested more than $500 million in three major Russian energy companies between February and March, regulatory filings showed.”
This is bad. It is so bad that even liberal media can’t sugarcoat it. Breitbart quoted CNN’s Senior National Security Correspondent Alex Marquardt:
“the White House, in fact, is panicking, that this is something that they desperately do not want to happen. Cutting oil production means higher oil prices, it means higher gas prices. That, of course, is something that the Biden administration does not want to happen right now. So, tomorrow, there’s this meeting of the oil-producing countries, this cartel known as OPEC. It is ostensibly led by Saudi Arabia. Russia is also a member. The United States is not a member. And what we have learned, myself and our colleagues Natasha Bertrand and Phil Mattingly, is that there is this furious, last-ditch, wide-scale effort to lobby the OPEC-plus oil-producing countries to not cut oil production, that senior members of the Biden administration are reaching out to members of the cartel, including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates. The cartel could cut as much as 1 million barrels a day in production, that would be the biggest cut since the beginning of the pandemic. Now, this effort is being led by the top Biden administration official for energy, Amos Hochstein. They’ve also enlisted the top White House official for the Middle East, Brett McGurk. But interestingly, they’ve also — just to show you how widespread this is — reached out to the Treasury Secretary, Janet Yellen, asking her to reach out to counterparts around the world. And we actually got talking points that the White House sent to Treasury that have very blunt language suggesting that Yellen say some of this to her counterparts. They say that this would be a ‘total disaster[,]’ it would be seen as a ‘hostile act’ against the United States. This is very blunt language. The White House says that these were draft talking points and not used. But it does give insight into how nervous they are, Jake.”
October is keeping up with its tradition of being a month full of surprises. It is time to start asking politicians like Joe Biden:
“If you were trying to destroy the country, what would you do differently?”
Biden, Pelosi, Schumer, what would you do differently?
