Biden offered his take on gas prices during a joint press conference with Japan Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Monday.
“Here’s the situation. And when it comes to the gas prices, we’re going through an incredible transition that is taking place that, God willing, when it’s over, we’ll be stronger and the world will be stronger and less reliant on fossil fuels when this is over,” Biden said, finding nothing but positivity and future sunshine for Americans as the end point for their current pain.

He openly admits it. Biden’s not opening up the free market for gas — which would massively decrease the cost of fuel — because he wants America to go through an “incredible transition.” He’s not hiding it. This is the whole purpose. Biden has always had loose lips; so he’s candid enough to state openly what others (including those he works for) will not admit.
Communists and Nazis did the same thing. Communists were always promising a better and brighter future. When they didn’t get it, they blamed it on their having too little power — and they simply seized more.
America’s revolution toward totalitarian control is underway. From the point-of-view of the totalitarians, it’s going swimmingly. Totalitarians have never had it so easy. Joe Biden has unlimited power — the power to destroy, which he calls (with that part demented, part naturally idiotic grin) — an “incredible transition.”
It’s hard to imagine a more undiluted picture of evil than this: Joe Biden, the least deserving fool (even from an autocrat’s point-of-view) gets to cash in on the buildup of government control that statists/leftists have been accumulating in America for decades.
For generations now, people of the more “libertarian” or limited government mindset have warned against the power of government growth. Sooner or later, we were warned, bigger and bigger government would come back to bite us. Ronald Reagan was our last serious warning, back in the 1980s. Ayn Rand, George Orwell, Henry Hazlitt, Ludwig von Mises and Frederic Bastiat warned us decades (even centuries, in Bastiat’s case) before the final disaster. America’s founders saw how it could happen, and now it has. Donald Trump followed in Reagan’s path, in many ways, but it now appears too late. Nobody is coming to rescue us. It’s a sinking ship. Each one of us will have to find a way to rescue ourselves from the disaster taking hold of us.
If you think an election is going to solve it all, then all I can say is: Come up with a Plan B. Now. If you think a regime with no qualms about tripling the cost of living almost overnight while laughing about it, and then smugly calling the disaster an “incredible transition”, is going to submit itself to the accountability of elections, then you probably never expected any of this to be happening.
