A Biden administration economic official credited President Joe Biden’s policies for a recent decrease in gas prices despite the fact that the fall in prices is largely due to diminished demand and fears of a global recession, according to a CNBC news clip posted to Twitter. Jared Bernstein, a member of the White House council of economic advisers, said that the price of gas nationwide is down by more than 30 cents from its peak due to Biden’s efforts to increase the supply of oil in a TV interview Monday. The drop in gas prices is primarily because of diminished demand at the pump and growing fears of a global recession that are causing oil prices to fall. Gas prices are dropping because of the administration’s tapping of oil supplies from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve and its pressuring of the U.S. oil industry to boost output and refinement, according to Bernstein. However, Bernstein did claim that with domestic refineries pushed to the brink , there is little … [Read more...] about The White House Is Already Trying To Take Credit For Falling Gas Prices.

Journalist and author Alex Berenson, formerly a science writer for the New York Times and known for being one of the most vocal critics of official coronavirus policy, reports that the White House was privately pressuring Twitter in the months prior to his permanent ban from the platform, which was recently overturned after his lawsuit against the social media company was settled. According to internal discussions between Twitter employees held on Slack, a workplace discussion app, and published by Berenson in his newsletter, White House officials specifically asked Twitter why the skeptical writer had not been banned from the platform.

House Democrats passed on Friday a $739 billion climate change, tax hike, and healthcare bill, giving President Biden's domestic agenda a boost at a time of record high inflation and low presidential job approval numbers.

Officials and advocates said the program helped to reduce the number of people living on city streets over the past two years. Advocates protested shutting down sites, wanting to keep filling them as temporary shelters even if permanent housing is uncertain , although some question how effective it’s been in getting people into long-term housing and treatment.

BEIJING (AP) — Latvia and Estonia say they have left a Chinese-backed forum aimed at boosting relations with Eastern European countries, in what appears to be a new setback for China's increasingly assertive diplomacy. The move follows China’s boosting of its relations with Russia, whose invasion of Ukraine is seen as a possible first step in a series of moves against countries that were once part of the Soviet Union. China has refused to criticize Russia and has condemned punishing economic sanctions imposed on Moscow by the West. Weeks before the invasion, Chinese President and Communist Party leader Xi Jinping hosted Russian President Vladimir Putin in Beijing and declared their bilateral relations had “no limits" in a joint statement. The move also comes after Beijing launched economic and diplomatic retaliation against another Baltic state, Lithuania, in retaliation for its expanded ties with the self-governing island democracy of Taiwan, which China claims as its own … [Read more...] about Latvia, Estonia leave China-backed East Europe forum
President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) sought “any government and/or Presidential Records” from former President Donald Trump’s tenure in the White House during Monday’s raid on Mar-a-Lago, according to a copy of the search warrant obtained by Breitbart News. The warrant , approved by Florida Magistrate Bruce Reinhart, included a list of property to be seized in its “Attachment B.” The warrant’s “Attachment B” authorized FBI agents to take documents and records in violation of three criminal statutes. “They are: 18 U.S.C. section 793, which deals with defense information; 18 U.S.C. section 1519, which deals with destroying federal documents; and 18 U.S.C. section 2071, which deals with concealing, removing, or damaging federal documents,” Breitbart News Washington Bureau Chief Matt Boyle reported. The warrant confirms recent reports that federal authorities were searching Trump’s residence for boxes of White House documents Trump may have brought with him from … [Read more...] about DOJ Sought All Records from Trump Presidency in Mar-a-Lago Raid
President Barack Obama never missed a chance to talk about his environmental record. From his clean power plan to the Paris climate accord to emissions limits on vehicles, he made environmental policy a priority of his administration. Most of his environmental policy however, centered around his view of carbon dioxide as the most dangerous pollutant the United States produces. Climate change alarmism in the Democratic Party has deep roots, but the rise of a presidential candidate who made it such a major part of his platform, Al Gore, cemented climate change as a Democratic sacrament. If you disagreed with the Obama administration’s prioritization of carbon, but still consider yourself an environmentalist, then you may have an ally in the White House — President Trump himself. Carbon-centric energy and environmental policy is a black hole. Because of the gravity of the problem according to climate alarmists, the mitigation of climate change overwhelms any other environmental … [Read more...] about Is Donald Trump Making America’s Environment Great Again?
This is a carousel. Use Next and Previous buttons to navigate 9 WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats pushed their flagship climate change and health care bill toward House passage Friday, placing President Joe Biden on the brink of a back-from-the-dead triumph on his leading domestic goals that the party hopes will energize voters going into November’s elections. The narrowly divided House was poised to approve the legislation, which is but a shadow of the larger, more ambitious plan to supercharge environment and social programs that Biden and his party envisioned early last year. Even so, Democrats were thirsty to declare victory on top-tier goals such as providing Congress’ largest ever investment in curbing carbon emissions,reining in pharmaceutical costs and taxing large companies and show they can wring accomplishments out of a frequently gridlocked Washington that disillusions many voters.
