A lot of American Communists are claiming that Jen Psaki ‘schooled’ Peter Doocy…
This couldn’t be further from the truth. What these Communists fail to realize is that Psaki’s answers are purely political and involve several slights of hand.
In a recent exchange, Doocy pressed Psaki on both inflation and the rising cost of gasoline in this country. Psaki responded with some cheeky answers that sound wonderful, educated, and enlightened, but they’re deceptive.
Psaki wants you to believe that drilling permits and inventory = a market ready product available to all consumers at stable prices.
This is a miseqauivocation and a farce; it sounds good to the uninitiated, but it neglects the realities of business and the supply chain.
60% of all those permitted lands are not oil flowing, and while we are already getting Canadian oil we sure could get a lot more if there were more pipelines, such as the Keystone XL, to increase the delivery of the product inventory.
The product inventory in this case would be all that oil in Canada that we have access to, and currently purchase, but not necessarily the best and most optimal logistical delivery systems to deliver that inventory to the consumer.
This is the reality of business, industrial production, and the supply chain. Do I think oil companies are milking this situation to secure record profits?
Yes I do, but that doesn’t excuse the fact that this administration caused the circumstances which led to this situation in the first place: namely pushing Putin into war, and destroying U.S. energy independence.
Peter Doocy recently told Jen Psaki at a White House press event:

Conservative Brief noted the exchange:
Doocy directly asked Psaki if the White House was just going to blame Putin and Russia for everything bad that has happened in the country until November’s midterm elections.
“And so to that point, inflation goes up today. The President’s statement blames the ‘Putin Price Hike.’ Are you guys just going to start blaming Putin for everything until the midterms?” Doocy asked.
“Well, we’ve seen the price of gas go up at least $.75 since President Putin lined up troops on the border of Ukraine,” Psaki replied.
Why does it seem like Peter Doocy is the only person challenging this administration at press conferences? I remember President Trump being ambushed regularly by a mob.

CTV News reports that amid the Biden administration stalling the Keystone XL pipeline, Alberta Canada is trying to take over the project and revive it:
Premier Jason Kenney says Alberta is the best choice to supply energy to the United States and wants to revive the Keystone XL pipeline.
$1.3 billion has already been sunk into the cancelled Keystone XL pipeline.
However, the premier said if he had political certainty from Washington that the pipeline could be completed and if the pipeline’s owner, TC Energy, won’t fund it, the province could.
