White House Sends Out Official News Release… Blows Up In Joe Biden’s Face

(Patriot Insider) – Before Joe Biden usurped the White House, he campaigned for the votes of the American people. During this time, he said this on Twitter:

“Here’s my promise to you: If I’m elected president, I will always choose to unite rather than divide. I’ll take responsibility instead of blaming others. I’ll never forget that the job isn’t about me — it’s about you.”

That tweet most certainly did not age well.

Ever since Biden took over the White House he has done nothing but pass the buck.

In the latest instance of Biden passing the buck, the White House put out an official press release in which he gave it to the American people straight and then blamed Putin.

This week gas prices have officially broken the record with a national average of $4.17 a gallon for regular gasoline. When a reporter asked Biden upon arrival at a naval air station in Westworth Village, Texas, “Mr. President, do you have a message for the American people on gas prices?” Biden nonchalantly responded, “They’re going to go up,” and added, “Can’t do much right now. Russia is responsible.”

This exchange was the subject of a White House press release which was shared on Twitter:

Not only does it just look bad to hear the man who is supposedly the president of the US tell the American people there isn’t anything he can do about the skyrocketing gas price crisis but on top of it, to blame Russia, it’s just downright shameful.

It’s especially shameful when you consider there is plenty his regime could do to bring gas prices down. He could, for example, start by harnessing the power of America’s energy sector rather than begging leaders of foreign countries for more oil.

The purpose of this bizarre press release isn’t quite clear. It certainly wasn’t meant to ease the concerns of the American people. At least, we’d hope not.

As if blaming Russia wasn’t enough for Biden. Earlier this week, on Tuesday, he asserted that claims his regime is responsible for the rising gas prices are just “simply not true.”

“It’s simply not true that my administration or policies are holding back domestic energy production,” Biden said. “That’s simply not true.”

“In the United States, 90 percent of onshore oil production takes place on land that isn’t owned by the federal government,” he continued. “Of the remaining 10 percent that occurs on federal land, the oil and gas industry has millions of acres leased.

“They have 9,000 permits to drill now. They could be drilling right now, yesterday, last week, last year. They have 9,000 to drill onshore that are already approved. So let me be clear. Let me be clear — they are not using them for production now. That’s their decision. These are the facts.”

However, according to Fox Business, American Petroleum Institute president and CEO Mike Sommers said the Biden administration’s attempt to blame oil companies for allegedly refusing to drill is misguided.

“This represents a fundamental misunderstanding as to how this process works,” Sommers said. “Once you lease land there is a whole process that you have to go through.

“First you have to actually discover whether there is oil and gas in that land. Second of all, you have to get a permit to actually develop that land. … Right now we actually are developing more leases than we have in two decades, so the White House certainly doesn’t have their facts straight on this.”

Furthermore, Biden issued an executive order pausing leasing for oil companies on federal lands, you know, in the name of fighting the so-called “climate crisis.”

It looks like despite his claims that he “can’t do much right now” and that his regime is not “holding back” domestic energy production, he could actually take action and lift this nonsense pause.

American Exploration & Production Council CEO Anne Bradbury told Fox that lifting the restriction would greatly benefit the country’s oil and gas situation.

Instead of taking this much needed action, Biden instead blames oil companies and Russia.

“That accusation is a complete red herring,” Bradbury said. “It’s really a distraction from the fact that this administration has paused leasing on federal lands, something that we’re concerned about and something that we think needs to continue right away.”

The White House can issue as many statements and press releases as they like and Biden can give as many incoherent, bumbling speeches as he can handle but the American people see right through their blatant lies.

It’s the Biden regime that has created and worsened this gas crisis and only the Biden regime. They have the power to fix it, they’re just choosing not to.

  1. The bottom line is, all Biden DOES is pass the buck, blame anybody and everybody for his OWN incompetence and lack of leadership, and LIE. Especially LIE! If his, or his paid spokesliar Jen Psaki’s lips are moving, THEY ARE LYING. NOTHING they say should be trusted or believed.

  2. Right up until the time Biden took over the US was completely energy independent. On his very first day he signed and reversed Every one of Trump’s energy policies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!.

    • You are correct. Its not putins fault its Biden. Come to texas and see all the pumps Biden shut down. They were functioning when Trump was in power. Then we got Russian oil , now it will be Iran or Venz oil. We dont need them. Pump american and bring our prices down and sell to our european friends.
      Tell Biden thats happening after the mid terms when the democrats are no longer in power.

  3. If it is not the fault of Biden and company that we are paying close to $5.00 a gallon for gas, then why doesn’t Biden call all of the oil execs in our country together and demand that they drill, drill, drill until we are energy independent as we were when he took office? The reason he cannot do that is because he is lying about it not being his fault. When he took office and immediately stopped construction on the Keystone pipeline, stopped all fracking operations for crude and stopped any progress on drilling in Alaska, then whose fault was it that fuel prices started rising! Mr. Biden – if you have any backbone and you actually care about American citizens, you will tell the false green people to shut up and allow us to drill ourselves out of this mess you have given us. IT IS NOT PUTIN’S FAULT, IT IS YOURS AND YOU SHOULD BE MAN ENOUGH TO ADMIT THAT. IF YOU ARE AFAID TO DO THAT THEN INVITE ME TO THE WH AND I WILL ADDRESS THIS ISSUE FOR YOU WITH ALL CONGRESSIONAL POLITICIANS!!!

  4. I have become quite irritated at hearing the lies of the media stating “the high interest increases of 7% ! Do they not buy their own food, clothing, gasoline? The price of gas at the pump has skyrocketed from the previous Administration to the Biden Administration, from around $3/gallon to over $5/gallon, and they’re calling that a 7% increase! Maybe 7% per month, but they’re NOT saying that. The Democrats are screwing American citizens by causing Bidenflation to finance the freeeeee to the illegals(they now call infrastructure) flooding our borders. Ask them the names and numbers of all the “catch and release” illegals that have flooded the borders since Biden took Office( or was installed). Bet they have no idea of the names and current locations if the infrastructure the released into America, and are “Wards of the State”.

  5. Dementia Joe Biden and the democrat party are nothing but traitor’s to our people and our country! Their goal is to destroy our country and control the people!

  6. Beijing joey doesn’t Care about anyone but his FAKE Administration and his PARASITES within his FAKE Administration. He doesn’t Care anything about this Country and the People that live in it. And U can take that to the BANK !

  7. Biden and his corrupt family are beholden to Russia & China and the Democratic Socialists He is a Moron and I would like to know who is actually running this country, cause it sure as hell not him. His brain is shot and he walks like a robot.

  8. It was Biden who on day one in the White House signed an Exec. Order to shut down the construction of “Canadian” pipe line that was to bring Canadian and US crude to US Refineries in America.
    This shut down places transportation of Crude again back on more expensive, and prone to accident railways in America.
    It may not have interrupted any shipments of crude then, but the shut down ended many of POTUS Trump’s permits for crude explorations.
    It was Biden who set, with this action, the mind set, the conditions, that allowed for these price increases to happen.
    The financial markets are always forward looking beyond the immediate future, and “Idiot” incompetent POTUS Biden set the conditions to increase gas prices at the pump, and the Markets took adnantage of it.
    I was these Bidens actions that set the conditions that alowed pump prices to increase.

  9. The financial markets are always forward looking beyond the immediate future, and idiot POTUS Biden set the conditions to increase gas prices at the pump, whenhe cancelled the pipe line that was supposed to bring Canadian Crude to refineries in Texas
