Nancy Pelosi Picked A Fight With Joe Biden Over Something That Nobody Ever Expected

For one year Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi worked seamlessly on implementing the most radical agenda in American history.

But there are now cracks in the relationship.

And Nancy Pelosi picked a fight with Joe Biden over something that nobody ever expected.

As Black Eye Politics reports:

Joe Biden and other Western countries failed to deter Vladimir Putin from invading Ukraine with his threat of sanctions.

The sanctions Biden imposed after Putin ordered his army to roll into Ukraine failed to convince Putin to surrender his mad quest to seize Ukraine.

The only sanctions Biden’s yet to slap on Russia is a ban on oil and natural gas imports.

Oil and natural gas serve as the foundation of the Russian economy and America imports 670,000 barrels of oil a day from Russia.

Joe Biden’s taken every step possible to restrict oil and natural gas production in America which only served to drive up the price of gas and fill Putin’s coffers.

Arkansas Senator Tom Cotton noted that the price of gasoline increased 61 percent on Joe Biden’s watch.

Biden doesn’t want to pay the political price by sanctioning Russian oil and further driving up the price of gas here in America.

Some predict gas could surge to over $5 a gallon if Biden sanctions the Russian energy industry.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki dismissed calls to sanction the Russian energy industry saying “we don’t have a strategic interest in reducing the global supply of energy, and that would raise prices at the gas pump for the American people.”

That did not sit well with Biden’s fellow Democrats.

Even Nancy Pelosi, who speaks in unison with the Biden administration on talking points, broke ranks.

In her weekly press conference House Speaker Pelosi declared her support for banning importing Russian oil and natural gas.

“I’m all for that,” Pelosi stated about sanctioning the Russian energy sector. “Ban it.”

West Virginia Democrat Joe Manchin slammed Psaki rejecting the idea of banning Russian oil imports.

“They are so wrong,” Manchin said in response to the Biden administration’s refusal to sanction the Russian oil and natural gas industry.

Manchin went so far as to say he would gladly pay higher gas prices to stop Russia.

“If there was a poll being taken and they said, ‘Joe, would you pay 10 cents more per gallon to support the people of Ukraine and stop the support of Russia?’ I would gladly pay 10 cents more per gallon,” Manchin added.

Joe Biden strengthened Putin’s hand and weakened America’s national security by clamping down on American energy production.

Biden canceled the Keystone XL pipeline, ended new fracking leases on federal lands, and halted all oil exploration in ANWR.

These moves played right into Putin’s hands by making gas more expensive.

If Biden wanted to truly fight back against Russia, he would immediately rescind all his anti- energy executive orders.

And even Democrats grow frustrated.
