Biden’s Food and Fuel Crisis — It’s the Policy, Stupid

Gold Goats ‘n Guns

But the rest of the Biden Junta is clearly in on the grift here as Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg did the Sunday talk show circuit to disavow any complicity by the administration in this mess.

Let them eat, EVs I guess.

They aren’t stupid, they are just liars and vandals. It’s intentional. Personnel is policy.

So, how about those fuel prices? Fun ain’t it to spend more on filling up your tank than it costs for a decent meal at a second-rate restaurant?

So you thought you could afford that $45,000 truck and the $700/month payment.

Guess again.

After suckering everyone in with low monthly payments for obscenely overpriced clunkers, the Biden Junta spent 2021 setting up to let you out of your house because COVID was over, only to ensure you couldn’t afford to drive anywhere.

It was policy, folks. It’s always been policy.

Everything else they tell you is a lie.

High gas prices are NOT just a function of high oil prices, supported by purposeful disruptions to the market thanks to the slap-happy sanctions machines in DC and Brussels.

High gas prices are NOT even a function of more than 2 million barrels per day of refining capacity taken offline during the unnecessary and terminally-damaging COVID lockdowns.

High gas prices are most certainly NOT a function of Russia’s military operation in Ukraine.

All of these things can be overcome by the ingenuity of human beings in times of chaos. If there’s one thing I have faith in is people’s ability to re-route their behavior and find workable solutions.

The natural response to an arbitrage opportunity always brings out the best in people, as they find ways to supply the things you demand to live your life.

The only thing standing in the way of that, invariably, is your government. In the case of the U.S., the Biden Junta has done everything possible to ensure that not only would gas prices rise to a completely unacceptable level, but that they would stay there until what’s left of the middle class is left broke and out of gas by the side of the road.

A couple of months ago there was a little announcement that the Biden administration would raise the cap on ethanol blending into gasoline stocks beyond the 10% limit in order to alleviate the ‘gas shortage.’

Be seeing you
