What a long strange trip it’s been

And by that, I mean, I have to be trippin’, right?

Biden said:

And what I’ve been able to do to keep it from getting even worse — and it’s bad. The price of gas at the pump is something that I told you — you heard me say before — it would be a matter of great discussion at my kitchen table when I was a kid growing up. It’s affecting a lot of families.

But we have released over two hundred and, I think, fifty-seven thousand — million barrels of oil, I should say. Us and the rest of the world we convinced to get involved. It’s helped, but it’s not been enough.

Ed Morrissey said:

If the US has released 250 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve, that would comprise about a third of its capacity. That means that we will have to replace that oil for strategic purposes, which will require massive purchases at a price that’s certain to be higher than what the price when that oil got released. What impact has that had on gas-pump prices? Er …

Biden’s policies forced higher gas prices from the beginning of his presidency, despite his continued buck-passing of the phenomenon as “Putin’s tax.” Furthermore, in this answer Biden strongly suggests that he always knew that his policies would create higher prices. In fact, the whole point of his policies is to force those pump prices to rise so high that it would discourage consumption, and also to allow Biden’s preferred alternatives to compete against fossil-fuel energy sources — even though they don’t produce scalable output.

  1. The unfiltered dementiacrat puppet said what no regressive politician must ever say: THE TRUTH!!

    The left is intentionally causing the price of petroleum based fuels and other products to rise until it ARTIFICIALLY makes fake green energy products cost effective. They are intervening in the natural supply and demand economics in order to force their green economy and societal destroying policies upon the United States.

    They are evil and must be stopped. Sadly too many ignorant useful idiots have no clue as to what their agenda is. It has NOTHING to do with the environment, and EVERYTHING to do with increasing their wealth and power and that of their corporate crony friends (i.e., the oligarchs). Do a little research and see who benefits financially from the “new green deal-killer”. AlGore is the first grifter who comes to mind, followed closely by John Fraud Kerry and many others of there ilk.

  2. what’s INCREDIBLE is that they are ‘transitioning’ us into a system that has absolutely no infrastructure to support the ‘transition’

    … unless they are that incredibly stupid (which I do think many of them are), or the ‘Great Transition™️’ is not what we believe it is & they have something else in mind & I don’t think that many people could keep their secret too long

  3. Biteme, if he has any capacity to think at all, and the useful idiot left zombies probably have no clue whatsoever as to what George Soros’ and John Podesta’s real agenda is – to destroy Western civilization and implement a global totalitarian government (aka “Great Reset” or “New World Order”). Make no mistake about it, those two criminals are instrumental in shaping the left’s agenda.

  4. I wish all that gas from the ice cream he eats
    would build up within himself and blow the top of his head of. He’s more low down than a tick on a dogs dick. Dementia or not he’s a dastardly POS that needs to be put out of our misery. Die already.

  5. It was obvious without the puppet saying anything.

    “Green” energy is a scam. A scam based on lies and greed.

    When all is said and done, we are responsible for the descent into the maelstrom
    – we are allowing it – we are feeding it – we are paying for it.

    Ignorance is bliss – but only until its consequences catch us.

  6. His policies will kill more Americans than all the school shootings in history. And the only reason he wants to control guns is he’s afraid they’ll be used to defend the country from people like him.

    > God have mercy on us all!

    If your “God” will be merciful to all, I have no regret pissing on it’s altar.
