When Russia launched its invasion into Ukraine, the Ukrainian people immediately began to experience grave hardships. It’s been heart-wrenching to watch. However, the effects of the invasion are being felt around the world, especially in Europe and the United States.

These nations will experience the most residual impact. One of the most obvious consequences of the invasion is the additional spike in energy costs. Americans are bearing the weight of Russia’s military actions at the gas pump.

However, despite what Joe Biden and his puppets say, Russia isn’t totally to blame. Gas prices skyrocketed over a year ago. Americans started paying over $1 more per gallon late last summer. The surge hasn’t really ever stopped.

Nevertheless, when Russia’s army stepped across the Ukraine border, prices continued to climb. Now, Americans are paying more to fill up their cars and trucks than they ever have in history. It is an especially burdensome tax on the middle class.

The elitists, especially the rich liberals like Joe Biden, are barely affected. But the hardworking American middle class is facing some difficult struggles. The spike in gas prices first began when Joe Biden axed the Keystone Pipeline.

His administration has made it virtually impossible to secure viable drilling rights. Joe Biden, beholden to the “Green New Deal” radicals, is putting the clamps on America’s oil and gas industry. It’s being done on purpose.

However, now it’s creating a potentially dangerous global crisis. FOX News’ Peter Doocy asked White House press secretary, Jen Psaki, about the possibility of opening up the Keystone Pipeline to ease the burden on Americans and the world.

Jen Psaki stuck to her abysmally droll script. Psaki avoided answering the question. That’s what she always does when presented with tough, direct inquires about Biden’s policy decisions. Doocy repeated the simple “yes or no” question three times.

FOX’s White House correspondent asked, “Is a restart of the Keystone XL construction completely off the table as long as Joe Biden is president?” Seems like a simple enough question. All Psaki would need to do is reply “yes” or “no”.

She didn’t. She rarely does. “Well, why don’t you tell me what that would help you address?” Psaki replied. Doocy continued, “I’m asking you if it is an option. You guys say are all options on the table.”

Doocy doubled down on his simple inquiry, “Quick yes or no, because there’s a lot of gray area here: Is a restart of the Keystone XL construction completely off the table as long as Joe Biden is president?” Psaki throws questions back at the press corps instead of simply answering them.

There’s an obvious reason for this. Neither she nor her boss has an answer. The answers they usually give are either false or flat out lies. After being repeatedly asked a simple question, Psaki reverted to her diversion strategy.

She muttered, “I do not believe restarting Keystone construction would solve any of the problems currently facing the American people.” Is she really serious? Opening up a viable pipeline to pump more energy across North America help solve any of the current problems facing the American people?

Is this woman for real? Importing oil and gas from Canada would be far more plausible than importing energy needs from abroad. Anyone with an ounce of common sense would realize this. However, the more we watch Joe Biden, the clearer it becomes that he has none.

The discussion shifted to why Joe Biden is referring to the current surge in gas prices as the #PutinPriceHike. Who’s responsible for the first hike Americans have endured for the last year? Was that Putin’s fault as well?

No, Joe, the reason the world is facing an energy crisis and outlandish fuel prices is because of you and your radical Green New Deal energy agenda. But why should Biden care? The American people are paying for his gas as well. Joe just pulls up and proclaims, “Fill ‘er up”. Don’t mind the bill. It’s all Putin’s fault!
