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 spends $1.65 trillion taxpayer dollars while vacationing in St. Croix

Joe Biden

While vacationing in the island of St. Croix for the holidays, President Joe Biden on Thursday signed into law the massive $1.65 omnibus spending package.

The whopping 4,155 pages was supported by only nine House Republicans and 13 Senate Republicans. Majority of criticism from the GOP includes concerns that the bill was rushed and crammed with wasteful spending by a lame-duck Democratic-dominated Congress. The recourse will punish American families by adding to the national debt and exacerbate inflation.

“Today, I signed the bipartisan omnibus bill, ending a year of historic progress. It’ll invest in medical research, safety, veteran health care, disaster recovery, VAWA funding — and gets crucial assistance to Ukraine,” Biden tweeted. “Looking forward to more in 2023.”

Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell “praised the bill on the grounds that it represents a real decrease in discretionary spending. He presented it as a positive that nondefense spending jumped by only 5.5 percent, from $730 billion to $772.5 billion, amid an inflation rate of 7.1 percent” writes National Review.

“The bipartisan government-funding bill that Senators Shelby and Leahy have finished negotiating does exactly the opposite of what the Biden administration first proposed,” he said. “This bill provides a substantial real-dollar increase to the defense baseline . . . and a substantial real-dollar cut to the non-defense, non-veterans baseline,” McConnell insisted as negotiations were wrapping up.

House minority leader Kevin McCarthy, however, stated his strong disapproval of the bill before it even advanced. Affirming a letter from 13 House Republicans, McCarthy demanded the bill is reckless, irresponsible, and a “purposeful refusal to secure and defend our borders.”

For example, it failed to incorporate protections for Title 42, the pandemic policy that allows illegal immigrants to be expelled on a public-health basis, which currently hangs in the balance at the Supreme Court.

National Review adds, “The funding in the bill, which averted a federal government shutdown before the new year, includes an allocation of $45 billion in defense assistance to Ukraine. Some Republican priorities, such as Electoral Count Act reform and a bigger military budget, were nested in with Democratic appropriations, such as increased funding for Medicaid and food stamps.”
