The taxpayer-funded, left-wing propaganda outlet National Public Radio (NPR) suggested over the weekend that if the United States lifted sanctions on Iran’s oil operations, it could lower the cost of energy for U.S. consumers.
Asked if energy prices have gotten worse since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, a reporter for Weekend Edition All Things Considered replied “Yeah. Oil prices spiked initially. They went above $100 a barrel very quickly for the first time since 2014, then they calmed back down. They settled at about $98 on Friday. Trading paused for the weekend, and it’s just starting again in some parts of the world. And I have to say, the only word for this moment on these markets is uncertainty.”
The reporter added that the Biden administration wants to solve high gas prices and other energy costs by getting OPEC+ to produce more oil, which it has refused to do. She also suggested that appeasing Iran could also help.
“Last but not least, there’s the possibility of a new nuclear deal with Iran,” she said. “Iran’s a major oil producer that’s been under U.S. sanctions. If there’s a breakthrough and all that oil comes back on markets, prices could come down.”
Appeasing Iran is not problematic for NPR, because the radical left doesn’t see Islamic fundamentalists as an enemy but as an ally against capitalist America and the Jewish state of Israel.
