Biden’s Econ Director Says The Quiet Part Out Loud- The Real Reason Gas Prices Are So High

Biden’s Director of National Economic Council (NEC), Brian Deese, screwed up and said the quiet part out loud. While explaining away US gas prices, Deese let it slip that prices are high to secure “the future of the liberal world order.”

Nope… You read that right.

CNN reporter Victor Blackwell noted that military analysts and the Director of National Intelligence have predicted that the war in Ukraine could last for years. That said, Democrats can use that excuse for an undetermined amount of time to explain away the energy crisis and shortages.

“I think everybody understands why this is happening but is it sustainable? What do you say to those families who say, listen, we can’t afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months, if not years,” Blackwell asked Deese.

“What we heard from the president today was about the stakes,” Deese replied. “This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm. But at the same time what I’d say to that family, to Americans across the country is, you have a present administration that is going to do everything in its power to blunt those price increases and bring those prices down.”

Just to make sure we are all caught up; Biden blamed Putin’s war for high gas prices in the US while blocking drilling projects. He’s recently started targeting energy companies and taken to publically humiliating CEOs. Accusing them of being the reason gas prices are so high but according to Deese—It’s all going according to plan.

Watch

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos slammed Biden for blaming high prices at the pump on gas station companies — accusing the groomer-in-chief of either employing “misdirection” or of displaying a “deep misunderstanding” of economic fundamentals.

In a tweet on Saturday, Biden wrote: “My message to the companies running gas stations and setting prices at the pump is simple: this is a time of war and global peril.”

“Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product,” the president continued. “And do it now.”

Bezos, the second richest person in the country, blasted Biden’s message in a response on Twitter later Saturday.

“Ouch. Inflation is far too important a problem for the White House to keep making statements like this,” posted Bezos, owner of the Washington Post.

“It’s either straight ahead misdirection or a deep misunderstanding of basic market dynamics.”

Remember all of this the next time Biden finds someone else to blame.

Over the 4th of July weekend, energy giants urged Biden to have his team take Econ101 and learn a little about how conversation works. Something I would find hilarious if these clowns weren’t leading the show.
