Fox News host and constitutional scholar Mark Levin blamed President Joe Biden and his administration for adopting policies that have led to a rash of domestic and foreign crises, including gas shortages and inflation in the U.S. and unrest and violence in the Middle East.
“Every one of these crises you mentioned were created by Joe Biden. Joe Biden is a human pandemic. That’s exactly what he is,” Levin, author of the new book “American Marxism,” told fellow host Sean Hannity Wednesday.
“From the border, to the currency, to inflation, the price of food the price of gasoline, the price of toys and plastics and steel—go right down the list. He has opened a Pandora’s Box to inflation and that is a tough box to shut,” Levin added.
“But, the Democrats are used to these sort of things since they create inflation, and recession, and depressions all the time, taking our money and money that doesn’t even exist and throwing it all over the place to give money to its base as they follow this Marxist ideology of class warfare and oppression/oppressor,” he continued.
“Joe Biden is the greatest president—not for our allies but for our enemies. Hamas sees it, Islamic Jihad sees it, the Palestinian terrorists see it—that’s why they’re doing what they’re doing,” Levin noted further.
“The communist Chinese see it, they thumb their nose at Biden. Putin sees it, they all see it. It’s a much more dangerous world as a result of Biden being in the Oval Office. He is absolutely pathetic.”
Levin’s critique comes as Biden and his adminstration face a host of simultaneous crises, all of which appear to be getting worse.
A ransomware attack on the Colonial Pipeline network forced the company to shut down a system that supplied Gulf and East Coast states with more than 45 percent of their gasoline, diesel and jet fuel.
Within a few days of being shut down, gas stations in several states reported runs on supplies by panicked consumers who rushed to fill up tanks. The result was a growing number of gas stations running out completely, with North Carolina and Virginia two of the states that were hardest hit.
But even before the Colonial Pipeline disruption, gasoline and diesel fuel prices had already been on the rise, with averages touching high three-dollar-a-gallon in many states and more than four dollars per gallon in California.
In addition to gasoline, prices on many other commodities including lumber, food, and other goods have also been spiraling upward, even as companies are paying higher prices for increasingly scarce supplies.
“Companies paid much higher prices to producers in April for everything from steel to meat in another sign of inflation in an economy rapidly recovering from the pandemic. The new data comes a day after a sharp gain in consumer prices sent the stock market reeling,” CNBC reported Thursday.
The financial news outlet went on to note that the Producer Price Index, while rising just 0.6 percent in April over the previous month, has skyrocketed 6.2 percent year-over-year, marking “the largest increase” since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking it in 2010.
“Economists polled by FactSet were expecting a 0.3% monthly increase in April and 3.8% year over year,” CNBC added.
