It is not about the people.
How many times have we said this?
It is and always has been about power.
Earlier, OPEC announced that it was going to reduce oil production.
Now we are finding out that Joe Biden pleaded with Saudi Arabia not to start that reduction until after the midterm elections were over.
Biden knows that if gasoline prices rise as people go to the polls, Democrats are done.
He is not worried about us paying more; he is worried about losing power.
Now the White House is preparing the nation for a future without an alliance with Saudi Arabia.
Nobody here is saying these are good people, but that alliance has benefited us just as much as it has the Saudis.
The only reason that alliance is falling apart is because of Joe Biden.
White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre stated, "We believe by the decision that OPEC+ made last week, [Saudi Arabia is] certainly aligning themselves with Russia.
"And right now, this is not the time to be aligning with Russia, especially with this brutal, unprecedented war that they started in Ukraine."
Senator Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) added, "There simply is no room to play both sides of this conflict — either you support the rest of the free world in trying to stop a war criminal from violently wiping off an entire country off of the map, or you support him.
"The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia chose the latter in a terrible decision driven by economic self-interest."
Saudi Arabia denies it is supporting Russia here, but it seems pretty obvious that is what is happening.
The entire world now sees a very weak man in the White House, something this country has not had in quite some time.
So, they are taking advantage of it.
Biden's threats are losing their zest and even the ability to back them up with each passing day.
The United States no longer holds the hammer, but we are very close to becoming the nail.
