Joe Biden keeps lying about gas prices.
But Biden got some bad news.
And Tucker Carlson hammered Joe Biden for this sick plan to raise gas prices.
Joe Biden announced new sanctions banning the import of 670,000 barrels of oil per day from Russia.
The price of gasoline immediately rose to a record high.
But that isn’t the only reason gas prices keep climbing.
Tucker Carlson noted that Biden’s anti-energy policies targeted one group – working-class Americans.
And not coincidentally, those voters are the ones abandoning Democrats to support Donald Trump.
“So, who exactly are these sanctions aimed at? Think about it. If you want to identify the target of a penalty, consider who’s going to suffer most from it. And in this case, the answer could not be clearer. It’s middle-income Americans. They’re the ones who were crushed for two years under COVID restrictions. They’re the ones who are about to be pummeled by shutting down more energy sources. Notice a theme here? The people in charge hate the middle class above all. So, it’s not Vladimir Putin who’s getting punished, it’s American citizens. It’s you. It’s not speculation,” Carlson told viewers.
Carlson also dissected White House press secretary Jen Psaki’s lie about oil companies sitting on 9,000 leases explaining that the leases were worthless because they were above land that contained no oil.
“Because oil companies have not used all the permits they’ve received, Jen Psaki told us, that means this is their fault. They’re not trying hard enough to produce energy. They could, but they don’t want to. But wait a second, Jen Psaki. What if there’s no oil or gas underneath the permitted land? In that case, energy producers would want permits for land where the energy is. Turns out they don’t want dry wells. They want wells that flow, but they’re not getting them thanks to the Green New Deal lobby that completely controls this administration, they can’t get those permits. And that’s what’s happening here and if you doubt it, ask anyone who works in the energy business,” Carlson added.
Gas prices were already rising before Joe Biden took office.
Prices were $2.25 per gallon on January 6, 2021 and were over $3.50 a gallon in February before Putin ordered his army to invade Ukraine.
The dirty secret – as Carlson explained – is that Joe Biden needs to crush the fossil fuel industry to pave the ground for Americans to accept more expensive “alternative” energy sources such as wind and solar.
And – unfortunately for the American people – Joe Biden doesn’t care that he needs to destroy the financial security of the middle class in order to achieve that goal.
