Biden Regime: 'Liberal World Order' Is More Important Than Cheap Gas
The Biden White House admitted on Thursday that record-high gas prices are part of a broader scheme to usher in the 'liberal world order.'

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T


The Biden White House admitted on Thursday that record-high gas prices are part of a broader scheme to usher in the "liberal world order" at Americans' expense.

On CNN, Biden's director of the National Economic Council, Brian Deese, made clear that high gas prices are a part of the plan, as the administration promotes prohibitively expensive electric vehicles to struggling consumers.

"What do you say to those families who say, 'Listen, we can't afford to pay $4.85 a gallon for months if not years. It's just not sustainable'?" the CNN host asked.

"What you heard from the president today was a clear articulation of the stakes," Deese said. "This is about the future of the liberal world order and we have to stand firm."

— Tom Elliott (@tomselliott) July 1, 2022

Deese was referring to Joe Biden's comments at the NATO summit in Madrid, after one reporter asked the president, "How long is it fair to expect American drivers and drivers around the world to pay that premium for this war?" in reference to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, which only spiked prices that were already elevated long before the war started.

"As long as it takes," Biden said.

Deese then highlighted the administration's efforts to "blunt" rising gas prices, including proposals for global price caps on Russian oil and a temporary gas tax holiday. Such policy maneuvers, however, are unlikely to make a difference without more oil and gas production in the United States, operations the White House has continued to shut down.

In May, Biden's Department of the Interior killed plans for major oil and gas projects across the country from Alaska to the Gulf of Mexico. When the administration announced the resumption of new oil and gas leases on federal lands to comply with a court order, the White House did so with a 50 percent spike in royalties while offering only 20 percent of the land initially nominated for exploration.

Other administration officials have left no room for doubt about their intentions, which has choked investment in the capital- and labor-intensive industry.

"President Biden remains absolutely committed to not moving forward with additional drilling on public lands," White House climate adviser Gina McCarthy pledged on MSNBC.

Meanwhile, the president's proposed break on federal gas taxes is a gimmick that will only offer more revenues for corporate sellers, who are able to pocket the savings as gas prices remain dictated by the open market and driven higher by the government-induced scarcity.

Deese also said the White House was "engaged with the industry" to increase oil and gas supplies and bring refinery capacity back online. But as the administration shutters down oil and gas operations, Biden also shut down plans for a major refinery in the U.S. Virgin Islands two months ago. Five refineries have closed down operations since 2020, with few prospects of reopening under an administration that has followed through on its pledge to regulate the industry out of business.

His focus on the "Liberal World Order" relates at least somewhat to a sorry attempt to compete with China's Belt and Road Initiative with a new way to spend billions of dollars of American taxpayers' money on what is called The Partnership for Global Infrastructure and Investment instead of using that money to counter inflation in the USA or other purposes that would benefit the American people.  I wonder if the nations he will be trying to convince to choose America will be amused by his useless attempt to contain China just as the ASEAN members were (but I'm sure those nations will be happy to get YOUR money).

Your pro-China bias is showing .  This so called liberal world order is neither new or a project of Joe Biden. It is the post ww2 international system of co-operation to prevent a third world war or a new round of colonialism. Every American president since Truman has agreed to this "liberal world order".

Please show where the current administration has "continued to shut down" current oil and gas production in the US.

I maintain that the article is lying and conflating several different uses of the word "liberal" with the supposed aim of making their dear readers foam at the mouth and chant "LIBERALS" in a demented and somewhat amusing display of ignorance.

The "liberal world order" has existed for almost 80 years.  It is also called sensible international relations.

The "liberal world order" has existed for almost 80 years.  It is also called sensible international relations. 

If the 'liberal world order' was intended to be 'sensible international relations' then explain Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, Iran, Central America, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and many more.  The liberal world order has become nothing more than global military/industrial coordination to support global authoritarian central planning that is completely separated from the people being governed.  The liberal world order is not about democracy.  The liberal world order is about establishing a global autocratic empire.

In fact, democracy is the greatest threat to the liberal world order.  People imposing their objectives and priorities onto governments and government policy through a democratic process does not align with global autocratic sensibility.  Autocratic global planning must exert control over objectives and priorities in order to plan.  Democratic interference with autocratic control over objectives and priorities weakens the liberal world order.

The liberal world order has been built upon military/industrial coordination, establishing global authority that is separated (and isolated) from people being governed, and has required absolute control over objectives and priorities imposed upon the people being governed.

Let's have high inflation, high gas prices, for-all-practical-purposes an open border, government support for illegal aliens, transgendered 'athletes' stealing women's thunder in sports, sexual reassignment surgery for minors (with or without parental consent), trophies for all.

The premise of the seeded article is a hoax.  The "liberal world order" is not a jackass conspiracy theory as the article hopes, it is a reality of the way international  relations have been carried out for almost 80 years. There have been 6 Republican US presidents (prior to Trump) since WW2 and every one of them subscribed to this "liberal world order".  Do you have anything to say about the hoax seeded article?

When someone uses the phrase, "liberal world order," they don't mean tax and spend liberalism. They don't mean transgender education in pre-k. They don't mean a regime of affirmative action.

What they mean is government founded upon the principles of The Enlightenment. You know, all that Jeffersonian Democracy that you gun nuts never shut up about but don't seem to know the first thing about.

Russia is a beacon of the exact opposite in this world. Russia is authoritarian, imperial, brutal, and corrupt. Property rights hardly exist in Russia and there is very little legal recourse for business dealings that go awry. Russia is using its military to take what it wants from its neighbors.

Russia is not our friend.

Explain how the United Nations, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and World Trade Organization are democratic institutions founded on the principles of Enlightenment.

Explain how the Liberal World Order prevented a regional war, contained in Ukraine, from metastasizing into a global burden requiring sacrifices by people around the world.   

Explain how the global rush to increase military/industrial coordination and increase government expenditures on weapons has expanded peace and prosperity around the world.

What?  We're not supposed to discuss the seeded article? 

And where did I mention Joe Biden?  The seeded article makes a connection between Joe Biden and the Liberal World Order.  But the focus of attention is still on that Liberal World Order.  The connection made by the seeded article raises a question of whether or not defending (or expanding) the Liberal World Order is an appropriate policy and course of action.

Does the Liberal World Order really do what is claimed?  Is Joe Biden on the right track or the wrong track?

OIL.  Cheap gas.  Freedom.  And the rest of it too.  Soon, $3.75 a gallon gas will be considered cheap.  

Oil is more than just a commodity and the Saudi Crown Prince knows it.  Oil is power and the nation's controlled by the weak will assure that that power rules over them.

There are better ways to get from point A to point B.   

As far as the price of oil, the goal of The West must be to put Putin in the position where he is begging to sell his oil for $50 a barrel.  Where are the F-16s?

I guess you could say that if you are wealthy enough to pay $90,000 for a new EV or pay less for one then pay $20,000 to replace the batteries that are not recyclable and will pollute the planet. That is not to mention the pollution and environmental damage done during the mining and refining of the materials used to make those batteries. Don't forget the environmental damage cause by making the electricity to charge them or to obtain the copper to manufacture and string the copper wires to get the electricity to your EV. 

Is that really a better alternative.

So what do you suggest?  Burn the non renewables until you get ocean front property in Memphis? 

As with all things there are plusses and minuses with electric vehicles.  People will be mining all of those resources to support our insatiable appetite for energy and gizmos. I think that long term the footprint will be much less overall using point of use and locally derived renewable resources than depending on an energy marketplace that spans the globe and is subject to the vagaries of several uncontrollable factors,  the least of which is definitely not the human ability to get pissed off.

I have no suggestions. I also have no issues with using electric vehicles or renewable energy just stop going on about how good they are. Renewables are not necessarily better just different. As far as climate change is concerned, I think that the planet is warming and has been for the last 15,000 years or so since the last ice age. Itis to me the height of arrogance to think man has any blame for it or can have any effect on it. It is a natural cycle of earth and has been since the beginning.

No.  Putin is not laughing.

Every day that the US comes closer to complete economic collapse Putin is laughing his ass off at Democrats and Biden. Who are not only doing nothing to stave off the collapse; but saturating the system with more money to crank up the inflation; and bring about it sooner.

He is losing hundreds of soldiers a day. He is losing dozens of military hardware pieces a day. 

Yet somehow he is still winning. Russia isn't the one screaming for more money, more weapons, and more of everything from the US and NATO. Haven't heard Russia bitching about losing hundreds of troops a day- but Ukraine sure as shit is.

Mr Podolyak's suggestion that 100 to 200 Ukrainian soldiers are dying each day is higher than previous estimates. On Thursday, Ukraine's Defence Minister, Oleksii Reznikov, said Ukraine was losing 100 soldiers a day, and 500 more were injured. 

Who is winning the war?

"Ukrainians are in a very difficult situation because they're running out of ammunition, they're being outgunned on the battlefield.

"They have to hang on desperately for the next two to three months before the pendulum will begin to swing in their favour."

Russia is now thought to occupy around 20 per cent of Ukrainian territory, with fierce fighting taking place in the eastern Donbas region of the country.

After a long battle Ukrainian forces were forced to retreat from the city Sievierodonetsk, one of the few remaining strongholds in the key Luhansk region.

"The question we're all asking ourselves is how much territory might they be giving up in these next two to three months," he said.

But hey, maybe Russia is just bluffing? Maybe they aren't going to do what they always do and pound the living shit out of Ukraine infrastructure and people until the losses become too great.

Tens of thousands of Russians have fled the country. 

Biden willing to take in the best and brightest of them. Sure there are no sleeper agents among those fleeing. By the way- Putin doesn't give a shit about his people. He never has.

The Russian government is dancing very close to an economic default.

When? Will it be before the US economy collapses and takes the rest of the world with it? Did you see where China is snapping up Russian oil as fast as it can? Despite Biden pressuring- because no gives a shit about Brandon.

The Russian Army is experiencing the highest desertion rates ever. 

Still has more than enough to get the job done in Ukraine.

Putin has arrested many of his former deputies and several more have fled to the US, Germany, France, Poland, Finland and other nations.

Putin is still in charge. This is called cleaning house. Removing threats to his regime. As much as Democrats think Russia is going to convert- they are heading for even a bigger Soviet type hard liner should Putin fall.

No.  Putin is not laughing.  All he has are dead soldiers, the Griner girl and a couple of other American and foreign political prisoners.

He has Democrats and leftists cheering on the economic collapse of the US. He couldn't ask for more useful idiots.

I ask you also.  Do you never tire of carrying Putin's water?
