Biden Bites Bullet on Banning Russian Oil Imports

'We will not be part of subsidizing Putin’s war... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Under heavy pressure from both Democrats and Republicans, and after floundering in a sea of panicked polling and feckless indecisiveness, President Joe Biden announced Tuesday the U.S. will ban all Russian oil imports.

“We will not be part of subsidizing Putin’s war,” Biden declared, after he spent nearly two weeks subsidizing Putin’s war in an effort to avoid further catastrophe to his polling numbers.

“Putin’s war is already hurting American families at the gas pump,” Biden said, adding, “I’m going to do everything I can to minimize Putin’s price hike here at home.”

That’s total nonsense, of course, and Biden likely knows it, or at least admitted as much in his meandering State of the Union address, where he doubled-down on his radical New Green Deal lunacy as a de facto way to drive up oil prices for average Americans who aren’t rich enough to run out and buy an electric car.

Biden’s disastrous energy policies were already causing gas prices to skyrocket, along with general inflation and prices on consumer goods across the board.

The average price for a gallon of gasoline in the U.S. hit a record $4.17 Tuesday, rising by 10 cents in one day, and up 55 cents since last week, according to auto club AAA. Meanwhile, inflation has soared to a 40-year peak.

Instead of taking proactive steps to help ease pain at the pumps, like reenergizing, no pun intended, the Keystone XL pipeline, Biden instead has opted to play footsies with foreign dictators.

His decision to ban Russian oil imports, much like his faulty decision to delay major sanctions until after Russia had launched its invasion, comes late in the game and likely won’t have any major impact. American private-sector energy firms had already begun to cut Russia out of its supplies. 

Biden said his decision to finally drop the axe on Russian oil comes after consulting with European allies, although he conceded that some still won’t join the U.S. in banning Russian oil.

“This is a step that we’re taking to inflict further pain on Putin,” Biden said, after his weak leadership had emboldened Putin to invade Ukraine in the first place.

“But there will be costs as well here in the United States,” Biden warned.

“I said I would level with the American people from the beginning,” said Biden, who hasn’t leveled with the American people in his decades-long career as a lying and pandering politician.

“And when I first spoke to this, I said defending freedom is going to cost — it’s going to cost us as well, in the United States,” Biden said.
