Biden Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy Pours Gasoline on Rising Gas Prices With Ridiculous Announcement

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. It’s “almost” like Clueless Joe™ Biden and his equally clueless administration are trying to destroy everything from the demographics of America — that’s a given — to parents’ faith in their kids’ schools to the entire U.S. economy. Only this time it could not be more clear. 

Amid soaring gas prices, White House National Climate Advisor Gina McCarthy on Thursday announced that the Biden administration is going to increase regulations on the oil industry: “There’s a place for” regulation and “We’re going to use it,” McCarthy said during an appearance on MSNBC’s “Hallie Jackson Reports.” Moreover, McCarthy told Jackson oil executives will soon face “a day of reckoning” on Capitol Hill.

Hold the bus.

So Biden kills the Keystone XL Pipeline ten seconds after he sits his clueless ass down at the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, continues to disrupt oil prices, begs OPEC to increase production, cries to the oil companies, and now this nimrod announces on PMSNBC that the hapless administration is going to increase regulations and blister oil executives before deranged Nancy Pelosi’s Democrat-controlled House.

See what I mean about doing this crap on purpose?

Jackson — totally on board with the insanity — asked/told McCarthy, as transcribed by Breitbart:

“There’s this sort of — argument that you’ve heard some Republicans make that more regulations could lead to higher gas and oil prices, etc. I wonder how you respond to that and your reaction to what you have been able to see so far related to this hearing that is still ongoing, by the way.”

McCarthy was primed (emphasis, mine).

“Yeah, well, this is basically a day of reckoning, I think, for the oil and gas sector. Because for many decades, they denied climate change. And now that we’re, every day, seeing the wildfires, the droughts, the floods, the heat stress [rolling-eyes emoji], people are no longer listening to that or tolerating it.

So, they can’t get away with that anymore. They have to get serious about delivering clean energy and electricity to the people in this country, and they have to stop with the deception and move into this decade and help us make the transition to clean energy so that we can win the 21st century here. [China and Russia — the world top two polluters — are not participating in global climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland.]

So, there’s no more hiding climate change. There’s no more climate deniers. This is just about who wins the future, and whoever addresses climate in the smartest way, which we intend to do, is going to be the big winner.”

Anyone else wondering what the hell the White House climate advisor has to do with regulating oil and gas prices? Call me crazy, but seems to me that would be the job of the equally clueless Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm.

McCarthy wasn’t finished. After Jackson asked if the evil Republicans “argue, hey, more regulations could mean consumers, Americans pay more on stuff, you say?”, the intrepid climate advisor busted out the Democrat go-to: increased “investment” — more taxpayer money and driving up the national debt.

“Well, what I would say is there’s room for regulation. But this package, this framework that the president is looking at is all about investments. It’s not about penalties. {ROFL emoji} It’s all about how we use our economic muscle to move forward and, again, win the jobs of today and the jobs of the future.

So, they can talk about regulation all they want. There’s a place for it. We’re going to use it. Because there’s opportunities that can’t be captured otherwise. [Like what?] But right now, if you look at this framework, you don’t see regulations and rules. You see opportunity after opportunity.” [Wow.]

The quintessential Democrat panacea for everything, gang. Tax it, regulate it, penalize it, make consumers pay more for it, destroy jobs, kill it. (See: “Build Back Better.”)

Speaking of Build Back Better Joe™, on Wednesday’s episode of “Stupid Crap Joe Biden Says,” Joe explained to America how electric cars work while trashing the oil industry and getting out over his skis:

“When you buy an electric vehicle, you can go across America on a single tank of gas figuratively speaking. It’s not gas. You plug it in.”

Yeah, no, Joe. Not even close.

Unless that is, the distance from the Pacific to the Atlantic is 412 miles. Currently, the Tesla Model S Long Range Plus has the longest range. The 2020 model offers an EPA-rated range of 412 miles.

Joe Biden’s America™. Where right is wrong and wrong is right.
