Biden Blows It Again on Useless Middle East Trip

Joe Biden has been in the Middle East at least in part to talk with Saudi Arabia about increasing oil production.

Biden went — hat in hand — despite the United States having the capacity to provide for ourselves if he would take his boot off the neck of domestic production. He went despite previously declaring that he would make Saudi Arabia a pariah in the world over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. He went despite a conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron that the Saudis were already basically at capacity.


Now, according to Bloomberg’s Jennifer Jacobs, their people are saying that Biden will leave without any public announcement about increasing the oil supply.

So if this is true, what was the point of this trip? Biden knew that would likely be the result, yet threw whatever supposed principles he had under the bus and went anyway.

The solution of course is right here at home — he just doesn’t want to do it — he doesn’t want to make assurances to our energy industry to open things up and let them freely flow because ultimately he wants to wipe them out in his mad dash to phase out fossil fuels to meet his ridiculous green agenda. He doesn’t care who it hurts.

Meanwhile, as the Biden team continued with their ridiculous energy and spending policies, they claimed that inflation was going to be transitory.

“We have in recent months seen some inflation, and we — at least on a year-over-year basis — will continue, I believe through the rest of the year, to see higher inflation rates, maybe around 3 percent,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said about in inflation in early June 2021. “But I personally believe that this represents transitory factors.”

Roughly a month later, in July, President Biden suggested there was no reason to worry about inflation and explained that it would be “temporary.”

“We also know that as our economy has come roaring back, we’ve seen some price increases,” Biden said in a July 19th speech last year. “Some folks have raised worries that this could be a sign of persistent inflation. But that is not our view.”


Here was Biden himself in an awful December 2021 word salad saying how inflation was going to do something quickly:

But it’s now gone on for more than 13 months, with gas prices being a big part of the problem. In June, the CPI went up to 9.1 percent, and the PPI to 11.3 percent, indicating that inflation was likely to continue.

But what is the Biden team still saying? We must spend more, according to NEC Director Brian Deese.

If they were trying to do us in, what would they do differently?
