Graham: Biden talk of economic ‘transition’ reveals truth about gas prices

During his recent trip to Asia, President Joe Biden made a startling shift in messaging when it comes to the current state of the economy, specifically linking record-high gas prices to what he called “an incredible transition,” and according to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), those comments were the commander in chief’s way of admitting that the pain Americans are feeling at the pump is part of a deliberate White House plan, as Breitbart reports.

Graham’s assessment of Biden’s remarks, made last week in Tokyo, was delivered during a Friday appearance on Maria Bartiromo’s Wall Street on Fox Business, and it was clear that the senator was not impressed with the truth he believes the president revealed.

The lawmaker from South Carolina responded directly to Biden’s statement that “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.”

In Graham’s estimation, those words were tantamount to an outright acknowledgment that “they’re doing this to you on purpose, that the transition period is being imposed by policies coming from the Biden administration.”

Graham also poured cold water on previous assertions from former White House press secretary Jen Psaki and Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm that skyrocketing fuel costs were best described as the “Putin Price Hike” resulting from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

“It’s not Putin’s fault,” Graham declared, “that this is a conscious effort by the Biden administration to destroy fossil fuel production in the United States, to get away from fossil fuels, and you’re living this experience.”

“This is an irresponsible shutting down of oil and gas production in America, making us more dependent on oil and gas from bad actors, and it’s destroying the American economy,” Graham fumed, adding, “[b]ut the takeaway is what you said, this is being done on purpose.”

Graham was not the only member of the upper chamber upset by Biden’s “transition” talk, with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) saying, “He’s in Tokyo celebrating, saying, ‘it’s an incredible transition.’ Incredible for you! You fly a damn 747 where the taxpayers pay for your jet fuel. What Joe Biden is saying is, if you at home, if you drive a pick up truck, ‘to hell with you; you can’t drive your pickup truck. If you have a Suburban, you’ve got to get rid of that. We’re all getting Toyota Priuses.’”

As the Wall Street Journal’s Daniel Henninger recently noted, Biden’s plummeting approval and Americans’ deepening economic woes – driven in no small part by fuel prices – are evidence that [t]he political gods, in their unfathomable wisdom, have handed Republicans a once-in-a-generation chance to help voters understand how to build a future from this ruin” the administration seems determined to cause, but whether the GOP can effectively seize that opportunity come November, only time will tell.

  1. We need to uproot the Socialist ‘weed’ that has sprouted in our ‘garden’ of America before it takes over because it was ignored!

  2. We won’t let the Dumdacrats rig this election this time, there will be a landslide in November, Republicans will take back the Senate and the house!!!!!!

  3. This is absolutely crazy what the Biden Administrations is doing to our country. Come he’ll or high water they are about to transform America into a 3rd World Country I hope everybody will be awake come November We have to stop them. Think of your grandchildren. They are the ones who will suffer.

  4. It shows that the American people do not matter to Joe Biden or the Democratic Party. What matters to the is achieving the Democratic Party’s goals irregardless of the cost to the people.

  5. When Air Force One begins flying on BATTERY Power, then I may consider purchasing an electric car. Until then, I will use what I always have used. Good, dependable gasoline. My advice to Mr. Biden (he is not MY president), is to open the XL pipeline and all the other oil pumps around the United States! NOW!!!!

  6. How much longer will we tolerate this?
    We have collected almost 30 million names and addresses since 2009, what are we waiting for?

  7. The man is senile!, or someone else is pulling his puppet strings! Past the ability to
    function effectively. Retire him and put him out to pasture!

  8. Biden is so obtuse, he cannot make ham sandwich. The current electric vehicles rely upon fossil fuel, UNSAFE nuclear reactors.
    Some nuclear reactors were built on fault lines – more insanity.
    Technology exists that would allow each wheel to generate power however that is NOT being done.
    Hydrogen powered vehicles that split water into H20 is a better alternative however DEEP STATE PLAYERS, BUMS, $atanists
    want US ALL DEAD – as they believe the world in overpopulated.

    Eliminating the DEEP STATE PLAYERS aka globalists would be a great place to start as often there wealth was unjust enrichment.

  9. Joe Biden is totally corrupt and the worst individual that the corrupt Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) along with Obama could have picked to become president. The American people MUST understand that the CFR’s goal is to destroy the USA and if Americans don’t wake up and prosecute every member and puppet of the CFR and put them in prison then we WILL lose our Country.

  10. He and the Vice President need to go! Both are tearing down America as fast as they can. Both are a joke!

  11. There is an old saying “put the Mind in Gear before the mouth in motion. It is obvious Joe Biden and his administration does not do this..His energy secretary, Jennifer Granholm is so ill informed about her departments responsibilities concerning the use of our Natural resources I would suggest she read a bit more about all the available sources of energy that can produce Electricity. Solar & Wind are just a couple. She is so stupid she and the other “Green Energy” wack O’s cannot see that more electric cars need more Electrical generation . That means more real generation produced from Nuclear , and fossil and Hydro not wind and sun..
    By the way Electrical cars in the numbers these wack O’s want will generate tons of ozone and have no safe way to recycle the lithium batteries ..They are probably unaware of that negative..

  12. Get them all out of there or make sure they are all paying what all Americans are. This is crazy.

  13. This is obama’s Agenda! Wake up people, Biden is obama’s Stooge, doing just what Obama tells him to do! This was the deal they cooked up, for Biden to be the “ front man”, be installed as President, and for Obama to have his third term through his stooge, Biden. Can’t anyone see this? Every word out of old poopypants’ mouth is obama’s rhetoric, even down to the vernacular used! Get them both out! Obama is guilty of sedition( among other things) and should be charged with same.


  15. People here is the deal … Where an when any president was able to pardon any person for money or not , Was the first sign the Gov. is totally corrupt. Think what you may. It’s been done by all of them… TOTAL COMPLETE ELEGAL CRIME!!! SO Hillary OBOOOOMA any of the worst people there has been. Even a POOOLUISKS , A Jen PASASS, you name it will never face any punishment . including all dem rats including Big Joe or Poor Hunter Because of this legal Presidential law. When Grand Jury, Presidential pardons were used, Was the beginning of the end!!!!! Innocent to proven Guilty What a statement from the pits of HELL !!! So we make a Grand JURY. NO FACTS, NO Evidence !! No PROOF !!! We think so ???? WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. I believe that this administration, that is in place through fraud and the worst conspiracy in history, is Jehovah God’s way of punishing the USA because we have turned our backs on Him. Look at the heathens like Biden and Pelosi that pretend to be Catholic and make the sign of the Cross on their bodies and then support killing babies and homosexuality and everything else that is an abomination to God. It is absolutely heartbreaking to see what is happening to this once great nation. I pray for the USA daily and I believe that our only hope is found in 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin,
    and will heal their land. Only through God’s guidance and our willingness to follow can we overcome this mess that we’re living in.

    1. God’s guidance in this mess is a real insurrection. God helps those that help themselves. If you expect our father in heaven to do all of the heavy lifting, you are sadly mistaken. This is a time for courageous men and women to step forward as patriots. We must relieve the despots of duty, even if it means arresting them and trying them for treason. Take a look at what I wrote.

  17. I am sorry to say this, but we cannot wait until Biden is out of office. He and Obama are purposely killing America in efforts to usher in a dark and dangerous form of socialism. The Republicans, under feckless and weak McConnell and McCarthy, will do nothing to stop this illigitimate President from destroying our country. The only way to put an end to a very corrupt and devastating D.C., is a real insurrection. The Declaration of Independence, our Constitution, and most importantly, our founders advocated the overthrow of our government in the event of tyranny. Folks, we have a tyranny on our hands, and our founders didn’t just suggest overthrowing a dictatorship, they demanded it. Now, let’s see how many citizens turn coward and run like little babies. If billionare patriots would step forward to organize 6 or 7 million citizens to lay seige upon D.C. in an effort to save our country from despotism, would you join them?

  18. We have had 2 Prius and they are great cars, but high maintenance for sure. You have to take them to the dealer to get fixed and if you are in tim buck too then forget it, it will be days to get them fixed. They get around 45 MPG where a Corella gets close to 39 MPG and they have much better power and pickup. You can also get any mechanic to have them fixed at a reasonable price. We have two and love them. But be sure Biden will never be seen dead in a Prius, neither will AOC or any other politician either. They rent limos at our expense
