Is President Biden Gaslighting the American People?

Published in Blog on October 28, 2022 by Jakob Fay

Remember when Joe Biden took office?

Remember how you were paying over $5 a gallon for gas until he made everything better and actually brought gas prices down?

Wait, that didn’t happen. 

Or did it?

According to Mr. Biden, his administration is actually saving us money at the gas pump. “Today,” he recently boasted, “the most common price of gas in America is $3.39—down from over $5 when I took office."

Funny, most Americans could’ve sworn the exact opposite happened; gas prices were relatively low before Biden took office and have skyrocketed ever since.

Are we just imagining things?

Actually, as it turns out, Biden was flat-out lying. Again.

In reality, the average price for gas when Biden took office was somewhere between $2.29 and $2.39 per gallon. Energy analyst Patrick De Haan tweeted “GasBuddy data shows that the most common prices when Biden took office were $2.29, $2.19, $2.39 and $2.09, the top 10% averaged $3.26/gal, while the bottom 10% averaged $2.00/gal. The median price was $2.29/gal.”

Biden’s lie was so indefensible, even CNN fact-checked him: “Biden’s claim that the most common gas price when he took office was more than $5 isn’t even close to true. The most common price for a gallon of regular gas on the day he was inaugurated, January 20, 2021, was $2.39, according to data provided to CNN by Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis at GasBuddy – much lower than the most common price today, not much higher than the most common price today as Biden said. In other words, Biden made it sound like gas prices have fallen significantly during his presidency when they have actually increased significantly.”

The national average gas price hit $5.02 per gallon this summer. Many voters hold Biden accountable. It seems he is trying to shift the blame by gaslighting the American people into believing an outright lie.

It wouldn’t be the first time.

“In late September, Biden asserted that “in 41 states plus the District of Columbia, the average gasoline price is less than $2.99.” In fact, not a single state had an average lower than $2.99 at the time,” CNN reported.

“The outright lies from the Biden Presidency are a disgrace and are extremely condescending,” former Margaret Thatcher aide Nile Gardiner remarked. “Biden treats the American people with contempt.”

The president is not the only politician in D.C. who thinks he can get away with gaslighting us. Our elected officials are corrupt and will do anything to stay in office–even lie to the American people.

It’s time to fix the federal government. Through an Article V Convention of States, we can limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, place term limits on federal officials, and keep our politicians accountable to the people who elected them.

Petition your state legislator

Almost everyone knows that our federal government is on a dangerous course. The unsustainable debt combined with crushing regulations on states and businesses is a recipe for disaster.

What is less known is that the Founders gave state legislatures the power to act as a final check on abuses of power by Washington, DC. Article V of the U.S. Constitution authorizes the state legislatures to call a convention to proposing needed amendments to the Constitution. This process does not require the consent of the federal government in Washington DC.

I support Convention of States; a national movement to call a convention under Article V of the United States Constitution, restricted to proposing amendments that will impose fiscal restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction, and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.

I want our state to be one of the necessary 34 states to pass a resolution calling for this kind of an Article V convention. You can find a copy of the model resolution and the Article V Pocket Guide (which explains the process and answers many questions) here:

I ask that you support Convention of States and consider becoming a co-sponsor. Please respond to my request by informing the national COS team of your position, or sending them any questions you may have: or (540) 441-7227.

Thank you so much for your service to the people of our district.
