As Predicted, Inflation Increasing Under Biden Just Like Under Carter

Published

on

Remember long gas lines under President Jimmy Carter? Gas is now over $3 per gallon. This is higher than it was under the Carter administration, $2.40, when accounting for inflation. Under Trump, it dropped under $2. We’re about to see deja vu of the Carter years with inflation, as Biden creates a legacy of attacking poor and low-income Americans right after entering office. He’s fostering this by handing out massive amounts of paper money in stimulus funds to special interest groups, and the pet pork is about to continue in his massive $2 trillion infrastructure plan, which is really a lot of so-called “human infrastructure,” not even transportation. 

 

Why is this happening? If you print more paper money and hand it out to people, so many people have more money, the cost of things is going to increase. If enough people getting the handouts can afford $4 gallons of gas, suppliers are going to increase the cost in order to make more money. There hasn’t been any stimulus checks for everyone -— e.g. the poor -— since March, so they’re going to get hit the worst when consumer prices go up. Once inflation is rampant, the Fed will increase interest rates which is likely to lead to a recession.

Former President Donald Trump was aware of this when he signed stimulus bills, and kept much of the excess out of the bills. He was aware that there was a tipping point, where the free money had to stop flowing. Consequently, consumer prices stayed relatively low during the Trump administration. Inflation dropped during his presidency, to just 1.2% before he left office. Biden and the Democrats don’t care that COVID-19 is winding down, they are going to push the limit as far as they can to keep the money flowing to their pet issues and cronies, which keeps campaign contributions coming into Democratic coffers.  

 

In the March COVID-19 stimulus bill, called the American Rescue Plan, Amtrak got $1.7 billion, no surprise since Biden has been funneling money to his home state big business for years. The National Endowment for the Arts received $135 million and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting $175 million. Another $5 billion went to farmers -— as long as they’re not white. Obamacare got its first major expansion, almost $62 billion more. People with kids got more money; a single parent making $75,000 got an extra $1,400 per child. 

 

The bill was full of money for the COVID-19 vaccine -— but so many Americans oppose getting the vaccine that many doses are going unused, a waste. They can’t be transferred to other countries since they have expiration dates. Additionally, the Biden administration is currently wasting millions, if not billions, of money to lure people into getting the vaccine on reward programs that aren’t working; Biden’s goal is to get 70% of Americans vaccinated by July 4 but he’s clearly not going to reach it.

 

States are prohibited from using the aid to cut taxes, ensuring that many businesses don’t create jobs or invest. Instead, the money was prioritized for left wing states that stayed locked down the longest, punishing red states that got people back up and working faster.

 

Consumer prices are increasing everywhere, 5% over the past year, the biggest inflation spike since 2008. Energy costs are up 56.2% over the past year.  Excluding energy and food, which are more volatile, prices are up 3.8% over the past year — the biggest 12-month jump since 1992. The price of lumber is at an all-time high, hurting the price of homes and trickling down to rent. 

 

Democrats are attempting to downplay the inflation by saying it is temporary. But the Federal Reserve Chair under Carter, Arthur Burns, said the same thing. To bolster their defense, Democrats point to the increase in car prices being caused by the pandemic. But that is different, there is a direct correlation involved. There is a car shortage caused by a lack of semiconductors, because manufacturers pivoted to making semiconductors for home computers as people drove less and worked from home. And gas prices were increasing drastically even before the temporary spike caused by the Colonial Pipeline hacking.

 

Former Clinton Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, no conservative but obviously an expert on fiscal and monetary policy, is warning of a “Vietnam inflation scenario.” He says there is only a one in three chance that the current inflation won’t lead to a bad outcome. 

 

When inflation was only moderately high under President George W. Bush in 2008, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed him, saying inflation “threatens to devour the paychecks of hard-working Americans.” So where is her concern for low-income Americans now? The poor will also be hit hard, food stamps will pay for less food. 

 

The inflation shouldn’t be happening considering the economy is supposed to be rebounding with COVID-19 receding. We should be seeing a huge boom, such as after World War II when things returned to normal. The nation converted then from military production to peacetime production. The U.S. should be transitioning to post-COVID production, but instead Biden isn’t allowing it to by diverting money to pet causes. People trying to get back into the workforce are finding that the job situation doesn’t match their skills; there are plenty of jobs in the COVID-19 vaccine area and working for Amtrak but fewer where people really need them, since states aren’t allowed to give tax breaks to companies that could create those jobs. Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, one of the few state AGs with guts to take on the Biden administration, sued the administration over the prohibition. 

 

The Democrats’ plan is just to ignore inflation. “We’re going to keep an eye on it, but we think it should resolve in the next few months,” Sameera Fazili, deputy director of the White House National Economic Council, said. It’s painful, but the Democrats are ensuring that Republicans dominate the midterm elections and defeat Biden in 2024.

The New Democratic Sex Cult

They have stopped worshipping the Creator and instead worship the created.

Published

The Democrats have become a sex cult. Sex is their religion. They have exchanged worshipping God the Creator and instead worship sex, the created. PolitiCrossing founder Chris Widener explains in this short video and gives you the true answer on how to defeat the sex cult. Read Romans 1:18-27 below the video, then watch the video.

From Romans 1:18-27

18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Send Boatloads, Not Plane Loads, of Migrants to Eastern Seaboard Sanctuary Cities

Ultra-wealthy liberal communities don’t want to handle an ultra-thin fraction of border-crossing illegal immigrants

Published

on

The Über-Liberals of Martha’s Vineyard got a tiny, tiny taste of what Texas and Arizona endure every hour, of every day, with no end in sight. What a wonderful glimpse for all the world to see: how an ultra-wealthy, sparsely populated island, in a virtual sanctuary state, handled a thin fraction of border-crossing illegal immigrants, yearning to be free! They sent them away in less than a day.

All those yard signs, all that virtue-signaling, and it all added up to what? Gross hypocrisy. Then the blame game started. DeSantis and Abbott… they are simply evil men, using the poor as political pawns. How do we know? The liberal press is blasting out this message via bullhorns.

As any thinking person knows, the blame lies in Washington, DC thanks to the lax administration of Joe Biden, his lackey Kamala Harris, and the super-incompetent Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Alejandro Mayorkas.

Making the Dollars Go Further

Apparently Governor DeSantis had to pay handsomely to fly the 50 “exploited souls” to Martha’s Vineyard. However, here is a solution for sending even more, at a far lower cost per person. Buy or rent one of the many cruise ship for sale from the cruise companies which have been hit hard over last 30 months and that now seek to reduce some of their inventory.

Personally, having cruised 39 times, and I can tell you that the these big ships can comfortably accommodate between 2500 passengers. The mega-ships can accommodate 4500. For a short trip up the Atlantic coast, doubling and tripling the number of family members in each room would sum to nearly 10,000 on one voyage. From Texas, navigating the Gulf of Mexico, or directly from Florida, heading up the Atlantic Ocean, a ship could reach Massachusetts within three days.

During the time of the voyage, the facilities on board are excellent. There are health clubs, saunas, steam rooms, a running track, and even a swimming pool or two. These guests of Joe Biden, transported by governors, would actually enjoy themselves on the way up, and then, by golly, be rewarded via the largesse that represents the good people of Massachusetts.

Fulfilling Sanctuary Dreams

Governor DeSantis, as well as Governor Abbott, employing cruise ships could then supply all the sanctuary cities along the Atlantic Seaboard with exactly what they’ve been begging for. After all these years, hey, why not make a wonderful delivery to Baltimore, and then Rehoboth Beach, Delaware where the Bidens frequent?

And how about 1,000s of migrants delivered to Atlantic City, New Jersey, and the Hamptons in Long Island? Don’t forget Bridgeport and New Haven, Connecticut before proceeding to Newport, Rhode Island, Nantucket, and Boston. For good measure make some deliveries to the resort towns in Maine.

What a marvel to behold, as these self-described caring destinations welcome thousands and thousands of migrants, all at once, and artfully absorb them. Sure, there will be some adjustments; such locales will have to spend big bucks for food, shelter, and clothing for these new arrivals… and then find them longer term homes and jobs. So what if local schools are not equipped with foreign language teachers and curricula so that the new children can get up to snuff? Isn’t that what sanctuary cities are all about?

Just Checking In

Let’s revisit all of these places one year later and see exactly how these welcome guests have feared. How about crime? Have they had run-ins with the law? What about the schools? How about public health? Let’s take a very accurate snapshot of what happens on the day they arrived, versus one year later, two years later, and three years later.

Having people dumped into your community, or your home for that matter, despite liberal virtue-signaling, represents a huge change in how you live, and how they live. It’s humanitarian to help a migrant in need. Thousands of migrants, or tens of thousands of them, all at the same time, dropped into a community is not a humanitarian gesture, it is an attack on your way of life.

As Henry Kissinger famously advised then German chancellor Angela Merkel, helping one person in dire need to come to Germany is a humanitarian gesture. Having great masses come to Germany threatens your culture.
