    "CNN Newsroom" host Victor Blackwell played a clip of President Biden telling a reporter at Thursday's NATO Summit that Americans can continue to pay a premium for gas "as long as it takes" to win the war in Ukraine.

    Blackwell asked Deese how the White House would respond to Americans worried that they won't be able to survive paying close to or over $5 a gallon, potentially for "years" to come.

    Deese responded that he sympathized with Americans' "frustrations" but said they needed to remember the Biden administration had made "historic economic progress" and this was a "transition."

    "And also remind the American people that even as we go through this challenging period, even while we move through this transition, we also have made historic economic progress and that's not to suggest that people shouldn't feel the anxiety that they feel," he began. The Biden official touted how the United States was "better and stronger positioned" to tackle these problems.

    So, I guess the alternative is to appease murderous tyrants to get lower gas prices?

    Morality really is a thing. Some voters are amoral, but most get it.

    Joke is so finished... I guess when you are already deep in a hole you might as well keep digging, because that's what he's doing.

    Globalism is the future. Reactionaries, isolationists and xenophobes are part of the past.

    I say that this bungled energy transition is all about the yearning for UTOPIA by Modern Morons but VDH says that this is also about our elites desire to cause pain to the other classes, they get off on it, and revolutions have a easier time of it if they can rub out the middle class which expensive energy goes far towards accomplishing. He talks about this at length on his June 26 posting of The Victor Davis Hanson Show on his website.

    Actually globalism has been in retreat, both in the U.S. and around the globe. We are all far too interconnected so globalism will never go away but it’s future is definitely something fluid
