Given its climate change agenda, the Biden administration’s vow to address soaring energy costs seems to ring hollow with many on social media other than die-hard Democrats.

According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki during a presser on Wednesday in the clip embedded above, President Biden “is going to do everything he can to reduce the impact on energy costs for the American people, and that means engaging closely with partners around the world. It means considering a range of options that are all on the table to reduce the market ⁠— the impact on the oil markets and that is what would impact energy costs.”

What this word salad means for the American consumer as a practical matter remains to be seen.

Even before the conflict in eastern Europe, inflation had already reached a 40-year high, however, in a follow-on to the Biden/Harris federal spending spree as enabled by the Democrats in Congress.

Gas prices at the pump for American consumers have hit eight-year highs.

Under President Trump, the U.S. became energy independent, but that progress was reversed after Joe Biden took office. Among other things, Biden cancelled the Keystone Pipeline and has halted oil and gas drilling on federal land as part of an ongoing legal dispute.

The U.S. is increasingly dependent on oil imports from Russia (as well as the Middle East), which makes the dispute between the West and Vladimir Putin over the Ukraine invasion problematic for America’s energy needs.

Both Biden and VP Kamala Harris have acknowledged that energy costs are likely to increase ever more given the international situation including economic sanctions on Russia.

In the meantime, there is speculation that corporate media is interested in hiring Jen Psaki on cable news as yet another example of the revolving door between government and liberal legacy outlets, which is roughly similar to the back and forth between regulators and regulated industries.

“Psaki intends to leave the White House at some point this year and, according to sources familiar with her thinking, intends to go into television news—not as a contributor, but as a host. Her lunch meetings with the CNN and MSNBC executives…were the opening salvo in what is likely to be a long effort by several networks to court the woman who could potentially become the next big star in television news,” the Puck website claimed in an article that read like it was written by Psaki’s cheerleading section.

As alluded to above, observers reacting to the spike in energy prices are unconvinced that the administration, based on its own track record, can be effective in this arena.
