Jen Psaki snaps about financing Russia’s war through oil, ‘only 10%’ of imports

During a White House Press briefing, Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich asked Jen Psaki about the disconnect between using sanctions to say the U.S. is financially burdening Russia, while still buying their oil.

“As long as we’re buying Russian oil, though, aren’t we financing the war?” Asked Heinrich.

Just as Psaki did, when you don’t have a good defense, one gets defensive. “Well Jacqui” said Psaki condescendingly, and clearly annoyed at the question. “Again, it’s only about 10% of what we’re importing. I’ve not made any announcement about any decision on that front.” Apparently only 10% funding of a dictator’s war is morally acceptable to Democrats.

Jacqui also said both Republicans and also Democrats are now calling on the Biden administration to end buying oil from Russia. “You just said…it’s not in our strategic interest to reduce the supply, we also know [Biden]…talked about increasing domestic manufacturing to bring down prices on inflated items…why not apply the same logic to energy and increase domestic production here?”

Yet another thought, Mrs. Psaki, how about energy independence, such as the keystone pipeline? Jacqui asked her about that as well, which the Biden administration completely stopped the production of. Psaki made a snarky reply that the Keystone pipeline has “never been operational” therefore “it would take years for that to ever have any impact.”

If only we could buy back the years that Democrats and the Biden administration robbed us of the energy independence from the Pipeline. Too little, too late.

    The keystone pipeline is just one of many sources of energy that the USA could use.
    And I wonder what 10% means? How many barrels and how much money is that per day, week, month and year?
    Plus where is the other 90 percent coming from? We know that Biden is getting oil from Iran and the rest of the Middle East. What are the numbers?
    Curious…

    Liar’s figure and figures lie. 10% what BS. How many million barrels at $105, $110 a barrel is the real amount that is being paid. Go figure.

    Ok Peppermint Patty…First.. according to the latest available figures, the US imports(Buys) from Russia 408k barrels of oil PER DAY..At the current market price, which by the way due to YOUR boss’s anti energy policies keeps rising at a rate of 5% to 7% Per day, of $115 means the US is putting $46 million in Putin’s pockets every day.
    Next, your former boss, Obama, on every chance he got, denied the permitting for Keystone XL.
    It is YOUR people’s actions which kept the pipeline from completion and placed on line.
    Lastly, both you and Mayor Pete seem to have an aversion to long term solutions.
    I dont think I’m posing out of school here when I state that the majority of Americans have had it “up to here” with you and your spineless and incompetent administration.

    That just proves how stupid Psaki truly is then, because Keystone was up and running just fine when President Trump was in charge, until mentally deficient Biden shut it down on his first day in office!

    It is such a breath of fresh air seeing a Democrat majority RUNNING THE SHOW. Clearly, the 81M that put Biden in the OVAL, are making a lot of money. Well, gotta get while the getting is good. Because, unless they can figure out a way to get those 81M voters to vote for DEMS on every ticket, the next redistricting will find DEMS in the obituaries. No worries. I am a democrat.

    Thanks Sara Carter.

    Everything Joe Biden and the Democrats have done so far has let both the Republicans AND the Democrats down. If he stays in office to the end of his term the United States will go down the drain. I pray that something will take place to relieve us sensible citizens from the pressure we are under.

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
