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.

Illegal migrants refuse to leave Denver encampments, make demands of city including ‘fresh, culturally appropriate’ food and free lawyers

A group of illegal immigrants in Denver is not only refusing to leave encampments, but also have the audacity to take no actions until the city meets its demands. The migrants were organized enough to publish a document with 13 specific demands before they “acquiesce to Denver Human Services’ request to leave the encampments and move to more permanent shelters funded by the city” reports Fox News.

Demands were made following the Denver government obtaining a petition to have the migrants moved, according to the outlet. The Denver mayor has been under pressure from the city’s ongoing migrant crisis, making headlines and receiving stiff backlash earlier this year for proposing budget cuts to the city’s government, including cuts to the city’s police force, to fund more money for dealing with the city’s migrant crisis.

The list of demands was sent to Mayor Mike Johnston and included requests for provisions of “fresh, culturally appropriate” food, no time limits on showers and free immigration lawyers, the outlet reported. Further details of the demands read, “Migrants will cook their own food with fresh, culturally appropriate ingredients provided by the City instead of premade meals – rice, chicken, flour, oil, butter, tomatoes, onions, etc… Shower access will be available without time limits & can be accessed whenever… Medical professional visits will happen regularly & referrals/connections for specialty care will be made as needed.”

The migrants also insisted they get “connection to employment support, including work permit applications for those who qualify,” as well as “Consultations for each person/family with a free immigration lawyer.” The migrants insisted that if these are not met, they will not leave their tent community.

“At the end of the day, what we do not want is families on the streets of Denver,” Jon Ewing, a spokesman for Denver Human Services, told Fox 31.

The current encampment is situated “near train tracks and under a bridge,” Fox 31 noted, adding that it has been there for the last couple of weeks.

Ewing told Fox 31 the city just wants “to get families to leave that camp and come inside,” noting its offer will give migrants “three square meals a day” and the freedom to cook.

He also said the government is willing to work with people to compromise and help them figure out what kind of assistance they qualify for.

Ultimately, Ewing said, the city wants to work with migrants to determine, “What might be something that is a feasible path for you to success that is not staying on the streets of Denver?”
