Armstrong Economics Blog/Energy Re-Posted May 27, 2022 by Martin Armstrong
According to politicians around the world, the Great Unwashed plebians should be grateful for the energy crisis. President Joe Biden recently declared that America is undergoing an “incredible transition” and we must suffer in order to reap the benefits. “Here’s the situation. And when it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden said.
I have explained that the Biden Administration deliberately ruined America’s ability to be energy independent. Biden sparked the energy crisis on his first day in office when he canceled the Keystone XL pipeline and removed various gas permits. The keyword in Biden’s statement is “when,” as no one knows when this transition will take place as there are NO viable large-scale alternatives to oil.
“It’s Incredible for you!” Senator Ted Cruz clarified, “You fly a damn 747 where the taxpayers pay for your jet fuel. What Joe Biden is saying is, if you at home, if you drive a pickup truck, ‘to hell with you; you can’t drive your pickup truck. If you have a Suburban, you’ve got to get rid of that. We’re all getting Toyota Priuses.’”
Biden had the audacity to claim he kept the energy crisis “from getting worse – and it’s bad.” This comes as the nationwide gas average reaches $4.59, but it has surpassed $8.00 in many locations. You will own nothing, not even an electric vehicle, and be happy. Realize that the “pain at the pump” is a deliberate attempt to push the Great Reset and climate change agendas.
