Biden Refuses to Ask Saudi Arabia to Produce More Oil;
Biden Advisor Declares We Will Pay $5 For Gas For As Long As It Takes to Defend "The Liberal World Order" (AKA Ukraine)

Biden doesn't want to risk the Saudis refusing his request -- it would make him look even weaker -- so he's not even going to ask.

$7 gas, here we come!

President Joe Biden refused Thursday to ask Saudi Arabia to produce more oil to bring down the cost of gasoline in the United States and around the world.

Biden was specifically asked during his press conference in Europe about what he would say to Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud or Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman about oil during their scheduled meeting in July.

"No, I'm not going to ask them," he said, noting that he already "indicated" to all the Gulf heads of state his desire for them to produce more oil.

"I hope we see them, in their own interest, concluding that makes sense to do," Biden said

...

During his presidential campaign, Biden vowed to treat Saudi Arabia as a "pariah" but ultimately agreed to a meeting with their leaders in July.

..

Biden and his administration continue to pursue anti-fossil fuel policies, putting the country more at the mercy of oil-rich foreign dictators.



When asked how long drivers would be paying for gas, Biden replied, "As long as it takes. So Russia cannot, in fact, defeat Ukraine and move beyond Ukraine."

Continuing the lie that that high gas prices are just the "Putin Tax," ignoring the massive Biden Tax in gas prices.

Commenters point out that Macron delivered the statement that the Saudis had already refused to pump more oil, so that's why Biden isn't asking.

Good catch, but: That's not exactly what Macron said. Macron said the UAE couldn't pump more oil, and the Saudis could pump only 150,000 barrels per day, which isn't enough to really bring down oil prices.

Still, it's something, and they allow they could pump that much more.

But Biden isn't asking.

...

Biden's handlers aren't walking back this statement that you'll pay "as long as it takes" -- they're doubling down on it.



Oh, Biden then went on to tell his Current Favorite Lie, that other major democracies are seeing higher inflation than the US. If you remember, he told that lie while meeting with reporters from corrupt legacy media, and ABC "News" then helped him cover up that lie by substituting a staffer's spin for what the lie meant. ABC "News" claimed Biden's statement that all other major democracies have higher inflation than the US meant, ABC "News" "clarified," only that inflation was a widely-occurring phenomenon.

Except that's not what he meant, of course. He meant what he said, which is another absurd Biden Lie. Or, a "Stuttering of the Truth," I guess.

He just keeps telling the same lie and the leftwing media just keep repeating it without contradiction of "The Big Lie."

The New York Post:

Biden went on to defend his administration's economic record, including by twice claiming incorrectly that inflation was lower in the US than in other developed countries.

"We have the strongest economy in the world. Our inflation rates are lower than other nations in the world," he said, adding later: "I can understand why the American people are frustrated because of inflation. But inflation is higher in almost every other country."

The 8.6% annual US inflation rate in May was the highest since 1981 and higher than the Eurozone's estimated monthly average of 8.1%, Canada's 7.7%, South Korea's 5.4% and Japan's 2.5%.

The UK's annual inflation rate of 9.1% was higher than the US rate in May, but the US rate exceeded Germany's 7.9%, France's 5.8% and Italy's 6.9%.
