Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm Demands Energy Companies Do Their Part and Start Producing More Energy
Flashback: "If you drive an electric car, this would not be affecting you"

The absolute balls.

Recall that just one week ago, Jennifer Granholm said flatly that the higher costs of energy we were suffering was just something we were going to have to get through as we "transitioned" to an economy that did not run on oil and gas, but on made-up, imaginary sources of energy that child-minded progressive smoothbrains prefer.

So this is their entire plan. As Barack Obama admitted -- or proudly declared -- that under his plan of punishing real energy production, "energy prices will necessarily skyrocket." They intended to artificially inflate the costs of real energy by several times in order to make the sky-high costs of fake energy appear competitive with it.

But then, when people start feeling the pain of this deliberate policy, they start making excuses, like this being "Putin's price hike."

Which all of the NPCs then start repeating.


And they also start talking about workarounds to the intended consequences of their own policies, like releasing oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve.

They could achieve a much larger effect by simply rolling back their oil-limiting policies, of course, but they will not even consider that: They intend their energy-punishing policies to be permanent. Temporary band-aids like releasing some oil from the petroleum reserve are intended to just be temporary, something to get the energy-destroyers past a bad couple of weeks of polling while they wait for the public to accept the New Normal of Permanently Elevated Energy Prices.

So here's Jennifer Granholm making another one of these temporary token workaround efforts while refusing to even consider rolling back her own Department's energy-destroying measures which are driving the high cost of energy.

Which was the entire intended point of them.

Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm publicly called on oil and natural gas producers in the United States to boost output while the country is on a "war footing."

President Biden's most senior energy official made the remarks as the administration looks for ways to reduce gas prices, which have skyrocketed even further during the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

"We are on a war footing," the energy secretary told an economic forum in Houston on Wednesday. "We are in an emergency, and we have to responsibly increase short-term supply where we can right now to stabilize the market and minimize harm to American families."

Notice -- we have to increase "short-term supply."

They want to keep long-term supply limited, because they want energy prices to "necessarily skyrocket."

But there are crisis points when the public begins showing signs it is no longer quiescent and may just rebel, and at those crisis points, you have to mollify them with a short-term palliative and pretend you "care."

Before going right back to performing painful deductive surgery on them, forever.


Lefties were swarming that tweet by a local CBS news station, pointing out that it's known to be one of the highest-price gas stations in California.

Why you can still get gasoline at $5.60 at most places, they say.


Oh. I did not realize they were just giving gas away these days!

See what I mean about slowly getting the public to accept the New Normal of Permanently Elevated Gas Prices?


Thanks to alexthechick.

Nitter link thanks to m.

Granholm in November: Gas will be $3.05 per gallon by December, so we don't have to increase oil production.
