“Never let a crisis go to waste.”
We all know that that has been the Democrat mantra for years.
And we are now seeing it play out with high gas prices.
Joe Biden has attempted to blame the high gas prices on Putin. He’s even called it “Putin’s gas hike” or “Putin’s tax hike.”
But what if that’s a distraction?
You see, once you learn to listen closely and pay attention to what’s happening behind the scenes, then they’re true agenda becomes obvious.
Well, we don’t have to guess anymore.
Pete Buttigieg has appeared to admit that the high gas prices are on purpose.
To “encourage” (strong arm) the American people into buying electric vehicles.
Don’t believe us?
Listen to him for yourself:

Why would he brag about how high gas prices are forcing people to electric vehicles?
Wouldn’t the rational response be to figure out how to lower energy costs?
Even the media is crowing about Biden’s attempts to get rid of traditional vehicles.
According to the New York Times:
President Biden on Thursday announced a multistep strategy aimed at rapidly shifting Americans from gasoline-powered cars and trucks toward electric vehicles — a central part of his plan to reduce the pollution that is heating the planet.
Mr. Biden is first restoring and slightly strengthening auto mileage standards to the levels that existed under President Barack Obama but were weakened during the Trump administration. The new rules, which would apply to vehicles in the model year 2023, would cut about one-third of the carbon dioxide produced annually by the United States and prevent the burning of about 200 billion gallons of gasoline over the lifetime of the cars, according to a White House fact sheet.
The administration next plans to draft even more stringent pollution rules for both passenger vehicles and heavy-duty trucks that are designed to compel automakers to ramp up sales of electric vehicles.
“There’s a vision of the future that is now beginning to happen, a future of the automobile industry that is electric — battery electric, plug-in hybrid electric, fuel cell electric,” said Mr. Biden, who announced the plan from the South Lawn of the White House before an array of parked electric vehicles, including the Ford F150 Lightning, the Chevrolet Bolt EV and a Jeep Wrangler. “The question is whether we’ll lead or fall behind in the future.”
Mr. Biden’s actions amount to an attempt to overhaul a major American industry in order to better compete with China, which makes about 70 percent of the world’s electric vehicle batteries. In an effort that blends environmental, economic and foreign policy, Mr. Biden wants to retool and expand the domestic supply chain so that the batteries that are essential to electric vehicles are also made in American factories.
If we want to compete with other countries, perhaps we should focus on becoming an exporter of energy like we were under President Trump.
Instead of relying on Europe for energy, we should be supplying the world with clean, American energy!
Yet Biden has handicapped our energy efforts since Day 1.
Just take a look at the hypocrisy:
Buttigieg "we need to stop using oil and gas." Also Buttigieg today: "the oil companies are not drilling enough"… https://t.co/P4V8xVdbHd

But it’s not just the gas prices.
Buttigieg wants racial “equality” for America’s roads.
He doesn’t want the roads to be racist.
He’s spending $1 billion of American taxpayer money on this initiative.
According to NPR:
Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Thursday launched a $1 billion first-of-its-kind pilot program aimed at helping reconnect cities and neighborhoods racially segregated or divided by road projects, pledging wide-ranging help to dozens of communities despite the program’s limited dollars.
Under the Reconnecting Communities program, cities and states can now apply for the federal aid over five years to rectify harm caused by roadways that were built primarily through lower-income, Black communities after the 1950s creation of the interstate highway system.
New projects could include rapid bus transit lines to link disadvantaged neighborhoods to jobs; caps built on top of highways featuring green spaces, bike lanes and pedestrian walkways to allow for safe crossings over the roadways; repurposing former rail lines; and partial removal of highways.
Still, the grants, being made available under President Joe Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure law, are considerably less than the $20 billion the Democratic president originally envisioned. Advocacy groups say the money isn’t nearly enough to have a major impact on capital construction for more than 50 citizen-led efforts nationwide aimed at dismantling or redesigning highways — from Portland, Oregon, to New Orleans; St. Paul, Minnesota; Houston; Tampa, Florida; and Syracuse, New York.
Meanwhile, some Republicans, including possible 2024 presidential contender Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, have derided the effort as the “woke-ification” of federal policy, suggesting political crosswinds ahead in an election season.
So what do you think?
Do you approve of the job that Buttigieg is doing as Secretary of Transportation?
Or do you miss President Trump and his cabinet?
