Looks like Biden had a hot mic moment at a hotly ironic time, while visiting Florida in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, no less.
“No one f***s with a Biden,” the president boasted, clearly unaware of the fact that he was hooked up to a microphone.
Good job, Biden.
Sounds more like Hunter after one of his many unfortunately recorded binges on various substances and human trafficked victims.
However, the humor further amplified considering that both Russia and Saudi Arabia decided to mess with Biden on the precise same day he felt bizarrely invincible.
Specifically, the nations decided to slash oil production by two million barrels per day, or more than 20 times the 100,000 barrel increase Saudi Arabia temporarily allowed Biden just a few months ago.
Unsurprisingly, Citi analysts have noted that such a move on Saudi Arabia’s behalf will undoubtedly help swing the election in Republicans’ favor (even more so than it already was) during the upcoming elections.
“Higher oil prices, if driven by sizeable production cuts, would likely irritate the Biden Administration ahead of U.S. mid-term elections,” the analysts noted.
Bill Farren-Price, the head of macro oil and gas analysis at Enverus, was even blunter.
“This is completely not what the White House wants, and it is exactly what Russia wants,” he raged.
The move by OPEC will likely lead the president to further drain the Strategic Petroleum Reserves, which are at their lowest levels in forty years, which is rather ironic, considering that inflation is at its highest levels in forty years.
Democrat politics in a nutshell.
Which is why the Citi analysts have even raised the possibility of Biden further messing about foreign powers clearly offput by his disastrous governance.
“There could be further political reactions from the U.S., including additional releases of strategic stocks, along with some wildcards including further fostering of a NOPEC bill,” the analysts wrote, alluding to a bill that allegedly counters the cartel influence of OPEC.
Environmental writer Michael Shellenberger, however, has much more of a clue with regards to what really happened.
“Biden thought it would be a political win for OPEC to increase production, so the US wouldn’t have to, thereby avoiding the wrath of green elites in his party. Instead, he’s undermined America’s standing in the world, helped Putin, and worsened inflation,” Shellenberger drawled.
Not only that, but the Biden admin is also chirping away again about “going green,” which is a tad expensive for most Americans at the moment.
Not that that reality stopped Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen from chirping away otherwise.
“Over the past two years in particular, we’ve seen the direct consequences of our continued dependence on fossil fuels. Not only do we continue to contribute and subject ourselves to a rapidly warming climate, but we expose ourselves to the type of energy market volatility we’ve experienced in the wake of Russia’s brutal war on Ukraine,” Yellen chirped.
No kidding. Shame that the Biden administration didn’t follow the literal energy independence Trump left behind.
“No country controls the wind and the sun,” Yellen blared, “and countries that can harness those sources of energy will make their economies more resilient and secure.”
Actually, if Russia does use nukes, the sun is technically controlled in terms of not providing sufficient warmth to offset a massive nuclear-induced winter, but global warming alarmists don’t like discussing such alternative scenarios.
