The media is finally started to wake up and call out the Biden administration and Democrats on their blatant misdirection.
The latest example is CNBC’s Joe Kernan during a recent interview with Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.).
Jeffries was trying to push the same-old narrative, but Kernan called him right out.
Biden likes to spread the narrative that the United States is producing more oil than it ever has, but that is yet another lie.
Many experts have analyzed the numbers and it is not even close.
To that point, with Jeffries pushing the Putin Price Hike narrative, Kernan stated, “In this country, we’re still down front from peak production.
“You don’t you think there’s anything that you can do in Congress or to convince a Biden administration, you don’t think there’s any regulations that need to be eased?
“You don’t think there’s any offshore activity?
“You don’t take any responsibility? It’s just all a ‘Putin price hike’?”
Jeffries started to respond, stating, “Yeah, part of the challenge domestically in terms of production is that the oil and gas companies have refused to actually act on the permits to drill that they currently …”
But Kernan jumped right back in, stating, “So there’s leases. There’s, you know, there’s also just the overall pressure from ESG and the green lobby about whether an oil company is going to make plans five or 10 years down the road when, you know, a large part of the population wants to put them out of business completely.”
Jeffries tried to shift to blaming it on price-gouging oil companies, but Kernan was not buying that either.
All I can say is that it is about time the media starts holding these clowns accountable.
