The so-called “President” Joe Biden just announced that the United States will no longer accept oil or natural gas imports from Russia.
This will create an unprecedented crisis at the pump most Americans are not financially prepared for. The anti-Putin crusade backed by the entire liberal world has just taken a turn for the worst, especially given the unfortunate fact that we – no the ruling elite – will be forced to deal with the financial consequences.

Biden made his announcement on the heels of a secret deal with Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Venezuela which involves removing sanctions from known terrorists in order to secure crude oil for the United States.

The cognitively impaired president said his decision comes after consulting with European allies, although he said some are not able to join the U.S. in banning Russian oil. Still, the European Commission (E.U.) said it plans to reduce imports of Russian energy by two-thirds, even though it gets 40% of it from Russia. For its part, the United Kingdom is to phase out Russian oil imports by the end of 2022.
Biden had been under heavy pressure to cut off imports of energy from Russian, the world’s third-largest producer of oil and second-largest producer of natural gas.
The president levied sanctions against Russia before its invasion of Ukraine, but they had no effect. Biden has since been struggling to find a way to hit Putin. On Monday, he spoke with the leaders of Britain, France and Germany by video on Monday, and the four “affirmed their determination to continue raising the costs on Russia for its unprovoked and unjustified invasion of Ukraine,” according to a White House statement.
Upon taking office, Biden took more than two dozen actions to stem oil production in the U.S., including the termination of the Keystone pipeline. That has led to more imports: Last fall, the U.S. imported about 700,000 barrels per day from Russia, even though that amounts to about 8% percent of total oil imports, U.S. officials said. But Europe imports 4.5 million barrels per day from Russia, about one-third of its all imports.
Despite the low flow of oil from Russia, Biden blamed the war for rising prices.
“Putin‘s price hike”. It’s not just that they are pathological liars. They treat the rest of us like idiots. Shut down and cut off national oil production. Ban Russian imports. Then blame the price increase on Putin. And @POTUS expects you to swallow that rubbish. pic.twitter.com/PEQubIhLRk

On Monday, the average price for a gallon of gasoline in the U.S. hit an all-time high of $4.104, surpassing the previous record of $4.103 set in 2008, according to data from GasBuddy.
The situation is beyond dire at this point and it appears Joe Biden and his globalist European buddies are doing everything in their power to make it worse for the average, regular citizen.
We will continue to suffer under insidious liberalism until an opposing force (hopefully Donald Trump) reemerges to set the country straight again.
Until then, we wait…
