Joe Biden We Will Win The War Against Putin By Forcing Americans To Buy Electric Cars
If nothing else shows the insanity of this government, telling us that purchasing electing cars as a means of defeating Putin is a new level of stupid.
When are Americans dealing with some food priced 50% higher than just a month ago, gas now approaching $5.00 a gallon? What is this administration’s response? Buy electric cars.
With inflation climbing to points not seen in decades, one has to wonder, savings already depleted trying to survive the lockdowns from Covid, where are we supposed to get this extra money from?
Biden did wrap this in the typical leftist self-righteous nonsense.
With his move Tuesday to ban imports of Russian oil into the U.S., Biden claimed he is “targeting the main artery of Russia’s economy.”
“Russian oil will no longer be acceptable at U.S. ports, and the American people will deal another powerful blow to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin’s war machine,” Biden added, according to the New York Post.
Biden’s announcement comes on the heels of the AAA’s finding of a $4.17 national average gas price as March 8.
But as Americans are finding a tank of gas costing them north of $50 for smaller cars and $80 for larger cars, it is galling that Biden has also spent his year in the White House engaging in a war against America’s energy producers just as costs of importing our energy have soared.
Biden, though, desperately tried to redirect anger over his attempt to destroy America’s energy industry by claiming that he isn’t doing what he is doing.
“It’s simply not true that my administration or policies are holding back domestic energy production; that’s simply not true,” Biden insisted.
“We’re approaching record levels of oil and gas production in the United States, and we’re on track to set a record for production next year … The oil and gas industry has millions of acres leased. They have 9,000 permits to drill now. They could be drilling right now, yesterday, last week, last year,” he added.
Biden then tried to hint that the price of oil is due to oil companies’ greed. He is either lying, or his mental facilities are worse than we thought. The price has risen due to demand; then supply is at risk due to a war in Ukraine; cutting off imports from Russia will not help either because they are a major supplier.
Add to this the cutting off of pipeline drilling in Alaska while pushing a green energy agenda that is way before its time; we are not ready to put such a thing in place in a viable manner.
Now Biden is doing what Democrats do so well, frantically looking for a scapegoat when their planning has sent this nation’s economy into a tailspin.
But the worst part is the attitude, telling Americans who are increasingly worried about keeping food on their table and gas in their tanks that they should buy electric cars. One has to wonder, does Biden think our electric grid is powered by renewable energy? It turns out only 12.5%, so where does he think the rest of the energy is produced from? It turns out it is coal, natural gas, and nuclear. So what is the Democrat response? The majority say no new nuclear power plants today; others say it is time to not only halt production but dismantle what we have in place. This would take away 52% of clean power or over 6% of our energy production; how does any of this make sense?
The problem is, and always has been, the Democrats are great with dreams, but the implementation of those dreams in any practical way is something they don’t grasp. Thus you have the Green New Deal, where cow farts are attacked; Democrats scold us over eating meat not buying electric cars when we have no money to do such a thing.
What is worse, who do you think will suffer the most for these actions? It will be the very people who voted to put the Democrats in power, the poor and minorities. They then turn in anger, not at Democrats; they are great at deflecting blame. They turn on businesses, corporations, white people, everyone but themselves. For the last seventy years, we have seen the Democrats promise the poor to take care of them; then, when they take power, these are the first people they ignore until the next election comes up. It is hard to sympathize when they continue down the same path and get the same results repeatedly.
