I’m thinking that the conversation between Joe Biden and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) must have been interesting.
Biden said in the Saudi presser he had told MBS he believed that he was murderer. But the White House transcript of those presser comments seems to contradict that claim, changing the language of Biden’s words. This falsifies the transcript and raises the question: What was Biden’s actual statement to MBS?
MBS now speaks out about the meeting. As we had previously reported, the Saudis swept the leg out from under Biden’s claims about oil, making it clear that there was no commitment to produce anything more. MBS basically confirmed this, saying that they had already exhausted all the resources they have to produce more. We had already reported that French President Emmanuel Macron told Biden the Saudis couldn’t produce much more. But that didn’t stop Biden from going — hat in hand anyway — to Saudi Arabia, rather than taking the boot off the neck of our domestic energy industries.
MBS made remarks that seemed to suggest he was criticizing Joe Biden’s policies.
“Adopting unrealistic policies to reduce emissions by excluding main sources of energy will lead in coming years to unprecedented inflation and an increase in energy prices, and rising unemployment and a worsening of serious social and security problems,” Prince Mohammed said.
Saudi Crown Prince says unrealistic energy policies will result in higher inflation 💯
That is what we are doing now. https://t.co/gbQ90utvlf

The de facto ruler of the world’s top oil exporter said COVID-19 and the “geopolitical situation” necessitated more joint efforts to support the global economy and that the transition to sustainable energy sources required a “realistic and responsible” approach.
It doesn’t sound like MBS thinks that it was due to Republicans or Vladimir Putin. He seems to have a clearer understanding of energy security and inflation than Joe Biden, regardless what else you might say. How concerning is that when he seems to get it more than the guy who’s supposed to be doing all he can for our country — but isn’t?
Biden hasn’t taken a “realistic and responsible” approach. Since he came in, he’s attacked the energy sector and that’s a good part of the reason we’re in this mess with high gas prices and inflation. Biden has stated that he wants the entire industry to cease producing fossil fuels. But Biden refuses all sense and reality on the subject, throwing us all under the bus to satisfy the radical left’s narrative against fossil fuels.
