JEA: This is certainly sad for the New World Order and its agents. If only 11% of Americans actually believe that Putin is responsible for the high gas prices in the US, then the New World Order has failed miserably and pathetically because over the past three months or so, they have said ad nauseam that Russia and indeed Putin are evil incarnate. It seems that the New World Order is slowly but surely collapsing.

Just 11% of Americans believe Russian President Vladimir Putin is to blame for record high gas prices in the US, according to a Rasmussen poll published on Tuesday. The majority instead blame US President Joe Biden.

More than half (52%) of respondents to the Rasmussen poll conducted last week pointed to Biden’s poor energy policies as the reason gas has become unaffordable, meaning the administration’s “Putin’s price hike” narrative does not appear to be catching on.

Those who blame neither Biden nor Putin point their fingers at oil companies, with 29% of respondents suggesting the industry is leveraging the current geopolitical instability to jack up its prices.

Perhaps aware that his “Putin’s price hike” narrative no longer holds water, Biden has been leaning toward blaming oil and gas companies for the ruinous costs of fueling up, recently accusing the industry of “making more money than God.” The president has insisted that oil companies are deliberately holding back from drilling “because they make more money not producing more oil.

While the US banned imports of Russian oil and gas in March, Moscow supplied just two percent of its oil before that and the US is a net gas exporter, leaving little support for the claim that Russia is responsible for the record highs at the pump.

The price of gas is widely viewed as the critical issue heading into the midterms. Some 92% of voters saw the rising price of gas, home heating oil, and other fuels as a serious problem in Tuesday’s poll, with 68% calling the problem “very serious.

With no sign of an economic turnaround and elections coming in November, the Democratic Party is likely to be blamed for voters’ economic suffering, and both houses of Congress may end up under Republican control.

Only 27% of potential voters rated Biden’s handling of the economy as “excellent” or “good” in Tuesday’s poll, a five-point drop since December, while 57% rated his performance as “poor.” Nearly three-quarters of Americans say the economy has gotten worse in the past year, with just 11% saying it has gotten better and the remainder undecided.

Faced with public refusal to believe the desired “Putin’s price hike” narrative laying the responsibility for American suffering at Russia’s feet, politicians have gotten creative. A former treasury secretary, Larry Summers, went so far as to blame Republicans who refused to display sufficient horror in response to the January 6 Capitol riot for the soaring inflation rate, currently sitting at a 40-year high.

Summers, like many US economists, has predicted a recession within the next year, though Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen has denied such an outcome is inevitable. Yellen infamously downplayed inflation last year, declaring it a mild and transient phenomenon as it spiraled out of control. Inflation is widely viewed as the number-one issue heading into the midterm elections.

  1. It’s 100% Biden’s fault. When you halt the US production of natural resources to be tapped for US production. For the US….you’re at fault. Period.

  2. All of that 11% I’m sure also blame Trump for the Harpoon anti-ship missiles, MLRS Himar systems, and M777 howitzers and Excalibur rounds Joe Biden has recently sent to Ukraine.

    They would be online right now blaming trump, but there is likely an LGBTQ parade or Covid vaccine booster event somewhere they are currently running late for.

    • 100% that you don’t have a clue as to what you’re talking about. The oil companies are racking in record profits 35 billion in the first quarter of this year and that is up 300% from the previous quarter. It’s more trumps fault than bidens since trump had OPEC reduce output during the height of the pandemic.

    • I kno a trade when I see one ! true i usually miss the bost…

      Biden is simply 100%.. the jibberish of confidence/man

    • Mike, oil companies are racking in record but the S&P500 lost 10 trillions of market capitalization in first six months this year with the “excellent” Biden’s handling of the economy… 🙂

  3. Yes, public opinion isn’t buying the notion that Putin is somehow responsible for why the USA is facing an economic Armageddon. This only increases the likelihood of a 9/11-style false-flag attack, this time blamed on Russia.

    Think back to August of 2001. What percentage of Americans thought that it was a good idea to invade Afghanistan? I’m sure the number was in the single digits. By the end of September 80% of Americans and all but one member of Congress were all for an invasion. The same thing will happen in 2022, only this time the USA will be facing and adversary that can fight back. It will be the end of the Empire of Lies and maybe most of humanity as well. This scenario is all by design. This is because Zionism is after all a suicidal death cult.

  4. Fresh news. I took part in building this refinery in 2008. 10 kms from the Ukrainian border. Another reason to raise the prices?

    Drone attack at a refinery in the Rostov region – a fire broke out at the plant. An enemy drone struck at the Novoshakhtinsky oil refinery in the Rostov region.

    After the attack of the UAV at the refinery, an explosion occurred and a fire started. The Main Directorate of the Ministry of Emergency Situations for the Rostov Region reports a fire area of ​​50 square meters. m, there is no threat of the spread of fire and no casualties, the ministry said.

  5. Parallel reality:
    “No chance”: details of the revelations of an American mercenary in Ukraine.
    As Russkaya Vesna reported, journalist Seth Harp on his Twitter posted a correspondence with an American mercenary , during which it was revealed that British special forces were participating in the battles in Ukraine.
    We would like to tell you more about the revelations of the American, which Harp commented as follows: “An incredibly sobering assessment of the battle for Severodonetsk.”
    “All the deaths and injuries were in vain,” writes the American, “after all, everything that happens here is absolutely shitty show.
    We had a two-hour battle, at the end of which it turned out that we fought with the Ukrainian special forces. It’s just impossible to believe what’s going on here. If it weren’t for *money* (Harp has this word covered with a black plate, but this is most likely about them, because his interlocutor is a mercenary – approx. RV), I would not be next to this ridiculous mess, ”he writes.
    “I have been all over the country (Ukraine – RV note) and I can say that the Ukrainians have no chance of winning this war. In the way they fight and destroy their own manpower and weapons, there is no chance.
    The media presents the picture one-sidedly, but here I see the reality. They blow up bridges while our own units are on the other side, there is no communication and coordination between units, friendly fire is a common occurrence here (literally, a British special forces sniper was just destroyed by fire from a Ukrainian armored personnel carrier because no one reported his arrival) .
    We are promised support, fired 3 mines and believe that they did it. They say that the guy who never held a grenade launcher in his hands is our support and he will stand 1.2 km from us.
    Yes, Ukrainians are brave, that cannot be taken away. But as for the rest, I can only shake my head, because the good guys die for nothing, ”concludes the American.
    In the comments, Harp’s subscribers are interested in why Severodonetsk became the site of such stubborn battles, as well as the opinion of “experts” who, 6 weeks ago, argued that Ukraine’s victory was inevitable.

  6. Right now Russia earns ~$20 bln selling oil, per month. The same situation about gas. 1 day of military special anti-nazi operation in Ukiestan costs ~$1bln.

    • Those numbers are wrong, from the E.U it cash dayli almost 1 billion only from the gas. Let alone oil, about the war, the cost is around 400 thousand dayli. Way less that Exceptionals spend dayli in the police and prisons, it´s around 700 millions, dayli

    • Romo, the price in $ changes because of strong rouble. Before the mil operation in Ukraine the rate was $1-R75. In March it became 1:150. Now it is 1:54. So, my salary in roubles is almost the same, but if you convert it into $ it will be almost 2 times more. For oil & gas companies in Russia the strong rouble is less profitable.

  7. “…Only 27% of potential voters rated Biden’s handling of the economy as “excellent”…”
    Now you know have there a 27% of unrecoverable junkies
