The American public, instead of Vladimir Putin, will bear the brunt of the Biden administration’s ban on Russian oil and gas imports, as the political establishment continues its ongoing war against the U.S. middle class rather than what might be Cold War 2.0 in eastern Europe.
That is the assessment of Fox News host Tucker Carlson as he asserted in an opening monologue on Tuesday evening which is embedded here in two parts.
“Think about it. If you want to identify the target of a penalty, consider who’s going to suffer most from it. And in this case, the answer could not be clearer. It’s middle-income Americans,” the host of “Tucker Carlson Tonight” insisted as part of an ongoing series of powerful, nightly commentaries that constitutes must-see TV.
“They’re the ones who were crushed for two years under COVID restrictions. They’re the ones who are about to be pummeled by shutting down more energy sources. Notice a theme here?” he asked viewers. “The people in charge hate the middle class above all. So, it’s not Vladimir Putin who’s getting punished, it’s American citizens. It’s you.”
The Russian Federation will just sell more oil to countries like China, India, and Turkey, Carlson noted, plus the sanctions on Russian oil won’t stop the Ukraine invasion or bankrupt Putin’s government.
In the meantime, the U.S. has to beg authoritarian or rogue regimes like Saudi Araba, Iran, and Venezuela for oil.

Carlson castigated many GOP lawmakers, who “barked like seals,” for going along with the sanctions imposed by the Democrat administration. “They are totally committed to screwing their own supposed constituency, which would be America’s shrinking, desperate middle class,” he claimed.
Carlson went on to warn that more pain at the pump, and elsewhere, is coming for American consumers, who are “hated” by those in the top echelons of the U.S. government.
“Gas prices are already the highest they have ever been in history and they’re about to get even higher—potentially much, much higher. So will the price of natural gas and the price of electricity and food and everything else you buy that has to be transported more than 100 yards from where it was made, which is to say every single thing in your life. This is not good news for you, no matter what Washington is currently claiming. You are about to get a lot poorer,” the FNC host declared.
Carlson also called out President Joe Biden and White House press secretary Jen Psaki for prevaricating about restrictions placed on domestic energy production in an administration controlled by the “Green New Deal lobby.”
“On his first day in office, Biden single-handedly killed the Keystone XL Pipeline. Then, just days before Russia invaded Ukraine, weirdly, Biden’s administration shut down all new energy leases and permits on federal land. That happened. Vladimir Putin did not do that. Joe Biden did it,” Carlson recalled.
“They are all lying to you. You probably guessed that already, but you can’t say it, because if you wonder what these policies may be doing to your country or to your family, you are selfish and disloyal. In fact, you’re unpatriotic, because real patriotism is caring about Ukraine first. And by the way, caring about Ukraine means prolonging a bloody war on Ukraine until the entire country of Ukraine has been destroyed and millions of Ukrainians are refugees,” he continued.
The neolib and neocon elitists, those “cut off from physical reality,” also comprise the cohort primarily beating the war drums, Carlson implied. “Those are the people on television, the people with fake jobs and inherited money. They’re totally for it, and they’re for it because they’re gonna pay no cost, but they’ll still get to feel virtuous about promoting it…because in a democracy you can safely ignore the middle class and so our leaders are doing that.”
According to the perceptions of the affluent, insulated cohort, “it turns out Americans are delighted to be poor and helpless. They love it because poverty means holding Russia accountable. Not Putin’s poverty, that’s not going to happen, your poverty,” Carlson contended.
Among other things, Carlson also slammed unfunny late-night, liberal comedian Stephen Colbert, who drives a Tesla, for his willingness to pay more for gas.
“Well, it turns out a guy who makes $16 million a year is willing to pay a little more for gas if that’s the right thing to do. He’s willing to make that sacrifice because that’s the kind of caring, decent man Stephen Colbert is,” Carlson said. “Now it’s true, as you just heard, that he doesn’t actually use gasoline. He drives a $150,000 electric car, but he will do it anyway. He’s the kind of man who will take you out to dinner and let you pay, and at the end, he’ll let you leave a big tip because he cares about the server.”
Carlson added that the U.S. and the former Soviet Union engaged in commerce during Cold War 1.0, including “with Joseph Stalin in the middle of his terror at the very moment he was murdering four million, yes, Ukrainians.”
Biden’s plan also includes giving China “complete control over a power grid here in America,” Carlson concluded.
