WH Tries to Clean up After Biden’s Addled Sanctions Comments, but Only Makes It Worse – Opinion

As we reported on Thursday, Joe Biden claimed that “no one expected” sanctions to prevent Vladimir Putin from invading Ukraine.

That flew in the face of everything that his team – including Kamala Harris – had been saying for the past month — that the threat of sanctions was the best approach to deterring Putin. We see that Biden didn’t even try to put in any preemptive measures. On Thursday, Biden was backpedaling and said that it would not have stopped him. It’s embarrassing that these people are our ‘leaders.’

Jen Psaki, White House Press Secretary was asked to discuss it during a briefing. The addled child had to be cleaned up by her.

“That isn’t exactly what he meant,” she scrambled. That is exactly what he meant. So, why does she always have to clean up for him and explain “exactly what he meant”? Problem is, he doesn’t always know what he means. His policy seems always to be to make the worst possible choice for America, which is why he’s been wrong for 40 years.

Biden told reporters to return in thirty days for more information about the effectiveness of the sanctions. Ukraine may be exterminated in a matter of months. Imagine Biden saying, “Wait a month.” But that’s what he said. That’s how what an unreal approach he has on this subject.

As we reported on Thursday, they even admitted that the sanctions weren’t designed to affect Russia’s oil and gas production. Why? Why? Because Germany made Europe dependent on Russian oil. That’s what has inhibited their ability to hold Russia to account, something I noted previously was called out by President Donald Trump. Trump stated that it was absurd and would endanger the alliance.

What was Biden’s response to that concern? He not only didn’t call out Germany and the rest as Trump did, he increased the U.S. dependence on Russian oil, making us more reliant and putting Americans more in the position of being hurt if we had to respond to Russian aggression. Now, we import 595,000 barrels per day of Russian oil. So, not only aren’t we stopping Putin, we’re making him rich and cutting our energy production as well, when we can be independent and even selling oil to Europe to free them from the Russian addiction.

Psaki was asked an important question by Fox’s Peter Doocy on Thursday. This situation being what it is, does Biden plan to make any changes to improve our energy independence or lift our restrictions on energy production? Even with all the evidence that shows how it puts us at risk, we still have no choice but to say “no”

Her reply was: We anticipate that war will have an impact on the market. You can’t, but you don’t know what to do. Absolute nothing.
