Have you seen where the Biden administration is boasting about a poll that says you’re willing to pay higher gasoline prices? I find myself responding in Bugs Bunny’s voice: He don’t know me very well, do he?
Have you seen the cable TV News interviews with “regular Americans” at the gas stations saying that, yes, they would be perfectly fine with higher gas prices?
Yes, there is a poll suggesting that Americans are in line with wanna-be late night funnyman, Stephen Colbert, who stated on his show that he wants to pay $15 a gallon for gasoline to punish Vladimir Putin because after-all, he drives a Tesla. And it could also be said that the same poll shows that the majority of Americans want to start World War III with Russia.
Do the American People Really Want War with Russia?
Often polls reveal that people want things that are not possible, for instance 74 percent of Americans said they like the idea of the U.S. establishing a no-fly zone over Ukraine. Putin has said this would be an act of war, Joe Biden has said this would be an act of war, and it WOULD be an act of war.
We would be at war.
Americans would start coming home in body bags.
So, what does this prove? That Americans want to go to war Russia? Is this really what American’s want? I don’t think so, but that little fact about a no fly zone was left out of the poll question. Polls are, by nature designed to give you specific results by just how the questions are formed.
American’s can’t possibly be expected to take a firm stand on anything unless they’re given the whole story. You can’t establish a no-fly zone over Ukraine without getting into the war, just as you can’t have both more spending (yippee more services!) and less spending (boo more taxes!).
Do the American People Really Want Higher Oil Prices?
As for the indication in the poll suggesting that 62 percent of Americans are more than willing to pay more for gas because it’s now sort of your patriotic duty to punish Putin by ending Russian fuel imports, it’s an unfair question because it’s not complete. The White House loves the idea of 62 percent of Americans being willing to pay more for gas because it becomes possible for Jen Psaki to pin a year or two of spiking gas prices on an enemy dictator rather than President Biden and his New Green Deal policies.
But once Americans realize that cutting off Russian oil imports is not only not going to deter Putin, but it also wont just mean higher gas prices but higher EVERYTHING PRICES!
I don’t think the American people are stupid, they’re just not as informed as they should be about what higher oil prices actually mean. Oh, they’ll get annoyed with gasoline prices again soon enough, but how about higher prices on literately everything else sold on the open market.
First of all, we need to understand what we’re talking about here, it’s not fuel, it’s crude oil.
What is crude oil and what are petroleum products? According to Rankin Energy.com:
Crude oil is a mixture of hydrocarbons that formed from plants and animals that lived millions of years ago. Crude oil is a fossil fuel, and it exists in liquid form in underground pools or reservoirs, in tiny spaces within sedimentary rocks, and near the surface in tar (or oil) sands. Petroleum products are fuels made from crude oil and other hydrocarbons contained in natural gas. Petroleum products can also be made from coal, natural gas, and biomass.
Products Made From Crude Oil
After crude oil is sucked out of the ground, it’s sent to a refinery where different parts of the crude oil are separated into any number of useable petroleum products. These petroleum products include gasoline, distillates such as diesel fuel and heating oil, jet fuel, petrochemical feedstocks, waxes, lubricating oils, and asphalt.
A standard 42-gallon barrel of crude oil makes about 45 gallons of petroleum products in U.S. refineries because of what is called, “refinery processing gain.” This increase in volume is similar to what happens to popcorn when it is popped.
What Are Petroleum Products, and What is Petroleum Used For?
Petroleum products include transportation fuels, fuel oils for heating and electricity generation, asphalt and road oil, and feedstocks for making the chemicals, plastics, and synthetic materials that are in nearly everything we use. Of the approximately 7.21 billion barrels of total U.S. petroleum consumption in 2016, 47% was motor gasoline (includes ethanol), 20% was distillate fuel (heating oil and diesel fuel), and 8% was jet fuel.
A Partial List of Products Made From Petroleum
The following list if of 144 products are just a small sample of the over SIX THOUSAND products made from petroleum. One 42-gallon barrel of oil creates 19.4 gallons of gasoline. The rest (over half) is used to make things such as:
|Solvents||Diesel fuel||Motor Oil||Bearing Grease|
|Ink||Floor Wax||Ballpoint Pens||Football Cleats|
|Bicycle Tires||Sports Car Bodies||Nail Polish||Fishing lures|
|Cassettes||Dishwasher parts||Tool Boxes||Shoe Polish|

|Percolators||Life Jackets||Rubbing Alcohol||Linings|
|Skis||TV Cabinets||Shag Rugs||Electrician’s Tape|
|Tool Racks||Car Battery Cases||Epoxy||Paint|
|Mops||Slacks||Insect Repellent||Oil Filters|

|Refrigerators||Golf Balls||Toothpaste||& Gasoline|
As I said, this is just a partial list of products (144 of over 6,000) you’ll now be paying more for as a result of Biden’s energy policies. And make no mistake this is all about Biden’s energy policies and NOT about anything Russia is doing. It just gives them the excuse to raise prices.
But why would Biden and his handlers want higher prices on absolutely everything we consume in America? Simple, to destroy the American economy, a long time goal of Marxists worldwide, but that’s a separate article.
I suggest you do some homework on your own, try researching the Cloward & Piven strategy. A concept devised by two radical leftist Columbia University professors in 1966. The nexus of their strategy was to use welfare programs to collapse the capitalist system and replace it with a communist structured redistribution of wealth. In order to archive this goal, the American economy must be completely destroyed.
So the next time you hear someone bloviating about, “doing the right thing” or “making a sacrifice” as a way of showing how much they care about the Ukrainian people, ask them if they’re not just willing to pay more for fuel but more for everything? And also, for how long, because this isn’t just a temporary sacrifice, this will be the new normal.
