Reports: Joe Biden Seeking Oil Deal with Socialist Venezuela, Russia’s Best Friend; As Price of Gas Reaches the Highest in US History, Blows Past 2008 Record, and related stories

Reports: Joe Biden Seeking Oil Deal with Socialist Venezuela, Russia’s Best Friend:
Multiple major corporate media outlets in America reported this weekend that President Joe Biden sent a delegation to Venezuela to meet socialist dictator Nicolás Maduro, reportedly to discuss buying Venezuelan oil.
The price of crude oil has skyrocketed internationally in light of the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine. While the war began in 2014, hostilities escalated last month after Russian strongman Vladimir Putin announced the launch of a full-scale invasion of the country – including the capital, Kyiv – in an alleged effort to “de-Nazify” the country. In his speech announcing the military operation, Putin claimed that Ukraine had “no tradition” of being a sovereign state and its existence was a fabrication and “mistake” by Russian communists.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has loudly refuted Putin’s claims that his country is run by Nazis by noting that he, a democratically elected head of state, is Jewish and the descendent of World War II veterans who fought against Nazis. In response, the Russian government has referred to Zelensky himself as a “neo-Nazi.”
Maduro, who has ruled the country since 2013 but lost his legitimacy in 2018 and simply refused to leave power, has vocally stood alongside Putin during the last two weeks of his military operation. Maduro has echoed accusations of Nazism against Zelensky; used his Twitter account to promote false information, such as sharing a clip from Zelensky’s sitcom Servant of the People and claiming it was a presidential campaign ad; and blamed the United States for the war between Russia and Ukraine.
Maduro has faced repeated allegations of antisemitism during his rule, which he has refuted by claiming to be ethnically Jewish. --->READ MORE HERE

Price of Gas Reaches the Highest in US History, Blows Past 2008 Record:
It’s absolutely unacceptable and ridiculous that it’s come to this.
Gas station geolocater GasBuddy has pinned American gas prices at a new, all-time record high on Monday.
The average nationwide price of a gallon of gas chalked up to $4.10, a price nearly double that which Americans paid during the presidency of Donald Trump.
The record prices are also buoyed by the largest single-week increase in American history.
Gasbuddy indicated that gas prices increased by a whopping 49.1 cents per gallon in the past week.
This smashed the previous weekly record spurred by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
“Americans have never seen gasoline prices this high, nor have we seen the pace of increases so fast and furious,” said Patrick De Haan, GasBuddy’s head of petroleum analysis. --->READ MORE HERE
