This morning, Secretary of Transportation, Pete Buttigieg did an interview on ABC’s “This Week” with George Stephanopoulos. The pair touched on the economy, inflation, rising gas prices as well as other topics.
When questioned about what can be done about the ever-increasing prices at the pump, Buttigieg wanted to make it clear to the American public that, Biden doesn’t have a”Gas Lowering Dial”. This was spurred when Stephanopoulos pointed out that the strategic release from the United States Petroleum Reserves had no effect. Buttigieg disputed the claim made by Stephanopoulos, claiming, “This is an action that helped to stabilize global oil prices”.
However, this remains to be seen at the pump as currently, the national average for gas is 4.624. This is as of 5/30/22 up almost 1.60 over last year this time.
Buttigieg readily blamed oil companies as being greedy, and Republicans for not moving on “use it or lose it legislation”. On Saturday, Fox News’ Tucker Carlson clip was shared on Facebook with the caption saying that it is time for Buttigieg to resign as Secretary of Transportation. This was a clip from his Friday show. Carlson points to what should be the two main concerns of the Secretary of Transportation, the price of diesel fuel and domestic air travel.
Tucker points out that everything is transported by diesel fuel and thus the rise in the cost of diesel fuel is seen in the cost of goods.
He also points out that air travel is something businesses and families rely on, dependable air travel. Both of these things in the last year and a half, have gone “dramatically in the wrong direction” according to Carlson. Diesel is at the highest price “ever recorded in history. The national average is just up 70% since last year, now 5.53 a gallon”.
Carlson claims that this […]

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
