In case you’re wondering where Pete Buttigieg, yet another bungling member of Biden’s bombastic cadre who clearly sailed to the top purely due to his sexual “diversity,” has been, wonder no further.
As he’s back on heavily skewed media, blaring even more brainlessness than before.
Coupled with a total absence of accountability.
“We know that the price of gasoline is not set by a dial in the Oval Office,” Buttigieg trilled during an ineffectual appearance on ABC News.
Right you are, Mr. Buttigieg.
The price was “set” as soon as anti-American energy independence Biden took over, especially considering he was already prepared to sign 17 executive orders on Day 1 in the Oval Office, followed by several dozens of other orders to follow.
Amongst these orders, which focused on compelling national issues such as transgender bathroom rights, one order in particular pertained to annihilating the Keystone XL Pipeline.
Not only did this horrid decision kill thousands of jobs in Canada and the United States, but it also effectively eliminated the massive strides the Trump administration had made towards securing American energy independence.
Just imagine how much cheaper gas prices would be now had the 2020 election truly been “the most secure election in history,” as repeatedly lied about by the increasingly fictional news media.
However, don’t ever count on a politician who took two months of paternity leave amid a crisis to tell the truth.
And, sure enough, right after Buttigieg’s sound bite commentary regarding a “dial tone,” about all the information your average leftist can handle these days, he proceeded to blame big, bad corporations for the rise in fuel prices.
“When an oil company is deciding, hour by hour, how much to charge you for a gallon of gas, they’re not calling the administration to ask what they should do,” Buttigieg blared, “they’re doing it based on their goal on maximizing their profits.”
Ah, but of course. And by “maximizing their profits,” Buttigieg studiously avoids the truth: Even if the profits are “record breaking,” the costs are even more so, which means any additional profits are more than likely destroyed.
Yet it’s easier for Democrats to blame businesses than themselves, secure in the knowledge that their base primarily depends on government handouts (ironically derived from taxes on corporations and consumers) anyway.
Heck, probably even political neophyte Buttigieg is just young, elitist, and inexperienced enough to believe his own total nonsense.
“It’s been very striking right now to see these oil companies, who have become almost ridiculously profitable, and you hear these oil executives on the record talking about how they’re not going to increase production,” Buttigieg brainlessly continued.
Gee, Buttigieg, what an amazing observation!
Obviously, it will be rather difficult for oil companies to increase production if say, Biden kills the very pipeline that was going to be used to facilitate greater production?
Ever think of that one?
Besides, oil companies also have to do a little thing like receive approval from the government to continue increasing production in varied areas, specifically for drilling.
And the present White House has demonstrated little interest in the average American’s plight, as evidenced by their blaring about the need to buy $50,000+ electric cars.
Frankly, Buttigieg could learn a thing or two from Janet Yellen, who at least had the decency to admit she was incorrect about the allegedly “transitory” nature of inflation.
If he can ever come back to earth from his utterly elitist non-reality, that is.
