If you truly believed Biden and the entirety of our liberal establishment is backing Ukraine out of some benevolent anti-war ideal, then you’re dead wrong.
The entire scenario is a perfect justification to completely bankrupt America’s oil and gas industry which essentially keeps the entire U.S. economy afloat.
Jen Psaki admitted just that during one of her appearances on this-or-that Fake News outlet.
Biden believes that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine proves that the U.S. needs to move away from crude oil altogether, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during an interview. Her comments came in response to Republican Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton’s interview earlier in the day, where he argued that the federal government should open the door to greater domestic fossil fuel production and cut off Russian imports.
“What this actually justifies, in President Biden’s view, is the fact that we need to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, on oil in general, and need to — and we need to look at other ways of having energy in our country and others,” Psaki said in the interview with ABC News.

There it is; the entire reason why America is even involved in this crisis.
Taking a step back you begin to realize the evil surrounding liberal America and the Democrat Party.
Some of us are old enough to remember the liberal vitriol lobbed at Republicans who incorrectly supported the Iraq War. Democrats complained George Bush and the GOP were sacrificing American lives to secure Middle East oil reserves for the United States.
Now the flip side of that same coin is true.
While we may not be fighting a war to secure more oil, we’re fighting a war to justify destroying it altogether! Either scenario leaves the American people struggling to get to work, thus struggling to provide for their families. Either scenario is insidious politics in its purest form.
However, if Biden hadn’t shut down the Keystone XL pipeline in the early days of his administration, we wouldn’t be in this mess.
While the Biden administration has announced several rounds of economic sanctions against Russia, it has yet to sanction the country’s key oil and gas sector. The fossil fuel industry provides about 40% of Russia’s federal budget.
Wonder why? Maybe because we’re reliant on Russia’s oil instead of producing our own!
Russia provided about 670,000 barrels of oil per day to the U.S. in 2021, Energy Information Administration data showed.
We’re officially engaged in Clown World War I.
