Marsha Blackburn on Inflation, Gas Price, and Border Emergencies: Biden Administration Is ‘Doing This Intentionally’

NASHVILLE, Tennessee – In an exclusive interview with The Tennessee Star, Tennessee U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn blasted the Biden administration, saying in regard to inflation, rising gas prices, and border emergencies that “they are doing this intentionally.”

Blackburn spoke with The Star backstage at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Conference.

“When you talk to Tennesseans, they look at the steps this administration has taken – whether it’s on inflation or energy or whether it is the open border – what they are beginning to figure out is that they are doing this intentionally,” she said.

The senator explained in detail why she believes that the Biden administration is being intentional in creating crisis after crisis.

“An open border is this administration’s border plan. The rising price of gas is their intention because they shut down Keystone. They took Alaska offline. They stopped fracking. They’re not drilling offshore,” Blackburn detailed. “All of these things add to the fact that we are no longer a net exporter of energy and energy-independent. We’re importing at least 670,000 barrels of oil per day.”

“Joe Biden is going to go hat in hand to Saudi Arabia to see if they’re going to help bail us out on this,” she added. “We need hydrocarbons. We need oil and gas in this country. It takes all of the above to be energy-independent and we are on the wrong track now.”

Previously reported, MSNBC singled Senator Blackburn out for criticism of her views on the Biden administration’s role in the inflation and energy disasters. The Star asked her why she thinks they did that.

“I am a conservative, life-female. My voting record is the most conservative, or in the top of conservatives in the Senate. They cannot stand when there is an effective female, conservative voice because I am not part of the leftist female cabal,” said the senior senator from Tennessee.

The discussion turned to the pending decision before the U.S. Supreme Court that is expected to overturn Roe v. Wade. Blackburn shared her thoughts with The Star on that matter.

“At the Senate Judiciary Committee we’ve been watching this issue very closely and of course I’m the only pro-life woman on the committee. I’m the only Republican woman on the Senate Judiciary Committee, so we’ve had the lead on defending life issues on behalf of my colleagues,” the senator said.

“We’re very concerned on what is happening with the Supreme Court justices,” she added, talking about concerns for the individual justices’ safety.

“We are very hopeful that Roe v. Wade is going to be set aside, that you will see the primary responsibility removed back to the states and the people, and that our states will zealously stand up and defend life. Then, as we need legislation at the federal level, we will step up and be there to support and push that legislation,” Blackburn concluded.

    well, duh.

    everyone knows that.

    Mr. Potato Head and his handlers are absolutely wrecking the United States on purpose- as fast as they can. The groups who are actually in control- to include the International Monetary Fund, and Soros’ Open Society are the puppeteers pulling the strings. When they can crash our economy, our healthcare system, and our energy supply, and don’t forget – disarm us, they can just walk in and collect the spoils. They can rebuild the US as the dictatorship they have dreamt of. We patriots have got to show them they’ve got another thing coming. If Marsha Blackburn, Donald Trump and the GOPs who are not RINOs are planning on helping, well that’d be great.

    Marsha. Complaining about Democrats…. In other Earth shaking news, the Sun rose in the east this morning….

    Marsha is great at stating the obvious. I want to hear what she and her GOP buddies are going to do to improve things should they gain the majority in the House and Senate. I figure that they will get nothing proactively done because the Democrats will stop any proposals. But they might be able to slow some things down. What I really want to hear what their plan to reverse the Biden garbage thereby setting the stage for 2024.

  5. Tim Price

    I believe she is correct!

  6. Il Professore

    Senator Blackburn is correct on all counts. That president (not my President) is intentionally taking this route to appease the socialist wing of his party. In an open border, they see potentially new votes. In energy dependence they see fossil fuel suppression which pleases and appeases the left wing. As to inflation, Demented Joe, his teleprompter programmer and his party just don’t “see it”. They truly believe you spend your way out of debt, you spend your way out of inflation. That makes as much sense as drinking ones self sober. Come November many of these partisan zealots will be out of office. The “adults” will return to DC. Say good bye to the likes of Omar, Kelly, Cheney and democrat control of the House and Senate.
