Video: Reporter Refuses To Accept Psaki’s Attempt To Blame Russia For Gas Price Surge

“It sounds like you are blaming Putin for the increase in gas prices recently, but weren’t gas prices going up anyway because of post-pandemic supply chain issues?”

As the price of gas surged to a national average of $4 and even surpassed $7 in some areas, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki attempted to deflect the blame away from the Biden administration, but one reporter refused to accept it.

As we noted earlier, gas prices are now higher in places than in zombie apocalypse movies, an entirely predictable reality, but the White House would have Americans believe it’s all because of Vladimir Putin.

Fox News reporter Peter Doocy wasn’t willing to quietly accept Psaki’s deflection, noting “It sounds like you are blaming Putin for the increase in gas prices recently, but weren’t gas prices going up anyway because of post-pandemic supply chain issues?”

Incredible, Psaki doubled down on the lie, claiming “…there’s no question that…the increase…is a direct result of the invasion of Ukraine.”

Doocy noted that Biden halted new gas and oil leases on public land in his first week in office:

He continued to press Psaki on how high prices have to go before Biden would consider reversing the previous executive actions, also noting that Biden stopped the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

“Gas prices are approaching an all-time high per gallon. How high would they have to get before President Biden would say, ‘I’m going set aside my ambitious climate goals adjust increase domestic oil production, get the producers to drill more here, and we can address the fossil fuel future later?’” Doocy stated.

Psaki responded by blaming oil companies and falling back on the age old claim of being better than Trump. “Well, again, Peter, the US produced more oil this past year than in President Trump’s first year,” she said.

Psaki declared “if we’re looking to the future, and what, how, what we can do to prevent this from being a challenge in future crises, the best thing we can do is reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and foreign oil, because that will help us have a reliable source of energy so that we’re not worried about gas prices going up because of the whims of a foreign dictator.”

Doocy fired back, “You guys think that asking Saudi Arabia or Venezuela for Iran is reducing our dependence on foreign oil?” pointing out that this is the administration’s strategy:

Remember in 2018 when Democrats were so outraged with high gas prices that they instituted a whole campaign to “Demand Lower Gas Prices”? They demanded that the Trump administration lean on OPEC nations to ramp up oil production.

Gas prices are now even higher but I guess ‘it’s OK when we do it’.

    New Bill Would Mandate Federal Reserve to Promote “Racial and Economic Justice”

    Two tier financial system in America?

    A new bill would extend the Federal Reserve’s mandate to promote “racial and economic justice,” prompting concerns as to whether this would lead to discrimination.

    “H.R. 2543 would expand the Federal Reserve’s existing dual mandate of maintaining price stability and full employment to focus on promoting “racial and economic justice in borrowing, housing, and lending,” reports Valiant News.

    If the bill is passed, the Fed would be responsible for maintaining “racial equity,” which would potentially create a two tier economy, one for white people and another for non-whites in America.

    “In effect, the passage of this law would make racial equity an integral part of the Fed’s mandate,” writes Jose Nino.

    As we previously highlighted, the Fed encouraged Americans to combat soaring meat price inflation by swapping turkeys for soybean products during Thanksgiving.

    Biden administration loyalists have run cover for the Federal Reserve by blaming soaring inflation on everything from failure to properly condemn January 6 to nationalism itself.

    Earlier this month, the Fed announced its “biggest interest rate hike in more than a quarter century,” although the three-quarters of a percentage point raise brings the current 1.5%-1.75% rate nowhere near the 20% rate enacted by Paul Volcker in the early 1980’s.

    The Biden administration has relentlessly denied that the country is heading for a recession, despite a cost of living crisis and multiple other financial indications that this is about to happen.

    Video: Reporter Asks White House If Americans’ Only Choice Is “$5 A Gallon Gas Or A $61,000 Electric Car?”

    “Sounds like a painful transition”

    The White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre was asked Thursday to explain why the Biden Administration’s only solution to soaring gas prices seems to be to ask Americans to deal with it or spend upwards of $55,000 on an electric vehicle.

    “A lot of people can’t afford a $61,000 electric car and they are also having a hard time affording gas right now. That sounds like a painful transition,” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy said to Jean-Pierre, referencing the several times Biden officials and the president himself have touted a ‘transition’ to green energy.

    “We are in a transition to clean energy…it’s going to create jobs,” Jean-Pierre responded, sounding like a broken record.

    “Yeah but who can afford an electric car? The average price is $61,000! Is that the choice $5 per gallon gas or a $61,000 electric car?” Doocy further inquired.

    “That’s apples to oranges. It’s not the same,” she responded.

    Jean-Pierre went on to tout Biden’s so called gas tax holiday, which even Democrats immediately dumped on Thursday:

    After repeatedly blaming Vladimir Putin for America’s soaring gas prices and cost of living, and then attacking American energy companies to boot, Biden spent Thursday blaming gas station owners for high prices:

    Seems like everyone except him and his administration is to blame.

    Pathetic: Only 11 Per Cent Believe Biden Narrative That Putin is to Blame For Record Gas Prices

    Majority blame the president.

    Only 11 per cent of Americans believe the Biden administration’s narrative that Vladimir Putin is to blame for record high gas prices, with the majority blaming Biden’s poor energy policies instead.

    A Rasmussen poll finds that 52 per cent of respondents think unaffordable gas prices are the fault of the president, with the vast majority rejecting the ‘Putin price hike’ excuse.

    The survey also found that 80 per cent of Republicans blame Biden for the energy crisis, while 54 per cent of Independents also say responsibility lies with the occupant of the Oval Office.

    29 per cent of respondents who didn’t blame Putin or Biden said greedy oil companies were the culprit.

    After the Biden administration’s attempt to blame the Russian leader failed to land, the White House has switched its rhetoric to start blaming oil companies, with Biden asserting the industry is “making more money than God.”

    The poll reveals that Americans are also unimpressed with the media’s attempt to prop up the failing Biden economy, with just 11 per cent saying it has gotten better, with 57 per cent rating his economic performance as “poor.”

    Biden loyalists have become increasingly absurd in trying to explain away gas price hikes and inflation, with former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers blaming people who downplay what happened on January 6.

    “The banana Republicans who are saying that what happened on January 6th was nothing or OK are undermining the basic credibility of our country’s institutions and that in turn feeds through, uh, for inflation,” said Summers.

    BlackRock CEO Larry Fink also ludicrously claimed “nationalism” was to blame for inflation, asserting, “The rise– whether you call it nationalism or the rise of this belief that we have to focus on communities that have been devastated by globalization, we need to find ways of creating better jobs for more Americans, that in itself is inflationary.”

    As we highlighted earlier, more emergency services in the U.S. are having to limit the amount of 911 calls that they are responding to in person because of record high gas prices.
