Someday the United States will have a real president again, but, sadly, that day is not today. In the meantime, Americans get to suffer through Joe Biden’s incessant excuses and never blaming himself or his administration for America’s economic collapse—even though everyone knows he did it with his exorbitant spending and cutting oil production.
Now, it’s gone from press secretaries and aides having to “walk back” Biden’s blunders to FED Chairman Jerome Powell contradicting Biden’s Putin narrative. Whether Powell was being intentionally contradictory or accidentally honest, he blew up Biden’s storyline.
According to Katie Pavlich at Townhall, “President Joe Biden again falsely contradicted Powell during his speech at the White House Wednesday afternoon. He also blamed oil companies for high prices.”
Astonishingly, knowing he slashed oil production, Biden told oil companies, “This is a time of war. Global peril. Ukraine. These are not normal times. Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you are paying for the product. Do it now. Do it today.”
Now, while Putin is a despot guilty of all manner of atrocities, he’s not the primary cause of Biden’s domestic woes, regardless of how convenient he is.
After Biden continuously blaming Putin for everything wrong with the U.S. economy, Pavlich wrote, “The ‘Putin’s price hike’ narrative is used by administration officials multiple times per day and has been adopted by Democratic allies…. The data… tells a different story. Inflation is a result of Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan, which was passed solely by Democrats….”
Senator Bill Hagerty (R-TN) asked Powell, “Would you say that the war in Ukraine is the primary driver of inflation in America?”
Powell, refreshingly, cut through Biden’s BS, answering, “No. Inflation was high before, certainly before the war in Ukraine broke out.”
And with this simple sentence, Powell pummeled Biden’s blaming anything other than himself and his administration for the destruction Biden has caused to the U.S.
Biden must believe Americans are also blithering idiots. The people know how good the economy was even with the CCP virus pandemic before Biden got into office. Energy independence was its hallmark, which Biden summarily shattered.
