Tucker: Biden’s inflation crisis

No government in the history of the world has ever spent more money than Joe Biden is spending right now.

Last August, used cars were selling for an average of $21,000. This August, they were almost $28,000. Same car, seven grand more.

Over the same period, the price of gas jumped a full dollar a gallon, and more than that in some places.

Been to the grocery store lately? The cost of a pound of steak is up by two bucks. A pound of bacon costs over seven dollars.

Suddenly everything costs more: eggs, milk, coffee, mustard. Etc.

These aren’t luxury items. These are things you buy every week. Are your wages rising as fast as your food costs? Vegetable oil is up sixty percent. Probably not.

You’re getting poorer. That’s what inflation does. It causes poverty. The Biden administration is actively making this much worse.

In this episode, Tucker explores the history of the Federal Reserve and the rise of inflation in the United States.

Highlights include:

“The Federal Reserve was created back in 1913 by an act of Congress and it had really two main goals: maximize employment and keep prices stable, keep inflation under control. Those are virtuous goals. But it may be a measure of the way that bureaucracies work that over time the Federal Reserve has actively undermined those objectives.”

“Every month, Federal Reserve officials print more than $100 billion in American currencies, and then they inject those dollars into our financial system by buying assets like bonds and securities. This is not a normal thing to do; it is a radical thing to do, and it was supposed to be temporary.”

“For the better part of a year, fed officials have been promising they’re going to stop doing this. They have sworn they will get sober. They have vowed to begin a process called ‘tapering.’ That means they’ll start to gradually slow the money they print. At a fed meeting in April, officials said they’d start to do this very soon … but they never did.”

“Because we can prove that the population of the United States is getting poorer by the day, you’d think the Biden administration would be actively concerned about this and working to make it better. But they’re doing the opposite. They’re actively making it much worse. And here’s how they’re doing it — by spending.”

“No government in the history of the world has ever spent more money than Joe Biden is spending right now. That is a fact.”

“This actually is inflation. It is real inflation. It is not transitory inflation, and it’s going to be here for a long time. What he didn’t say was that this is not an act of God. This isn’t a hurricane, it’s not an earthquake, it’s not something we can’t control. This is the result of decades of policy that have enriched a few and impoverished the many.”

Homelessness is a manufactured crisis

Politicians are making it much easier to be a homeless drug addict in the United States and much harder it is to be a law-abiding member of the middle class.

Tucker examines the cause and solutions to the homeless crisis in America. Highlights include:

“No matter what they tell you, homelessness is not an act of God. It’s not the result of economic collapse in this country, America did not run out of housing.”

“Instead, a determined group of well-funded ideologues decided to make it easier to live on the streets in this country while doing drugs.”

“Therefore, many more people now live on the streets while doing drugs.”

“Luxury apartments are just the beginning. Seattle’s most recent municipal budget allocates more than $150 million to other so-called homelessness programs, just this year. Now, keep in mind Seattle has fewer than 750,000 people living there, so that’s an awful lot of money per bum. It’s certainly a lot more than anyone else is getting in Seattle. At the same time it was giving overpriced condos to drug addicts. Seattle allocated just $10 million total for its small business stabilization fund, designed to keep family businesses from going bankrupt during the covid lockdowns.”

“You get what you pay for. When you pay for homelessness, you get a lot more of it.”

“In Los Angeles, politicians have spent billions ‘fighting homelessness.’ This has been accompanied, of course, by a massive increase in the number of people who are homeless. Four years ago, the city spent $440 million on what it called ‘solutions to homelessness.’ That was supposed to fix the problem. Did it? Homelessness in Los Angeles jumped 15% just last year.”

“As for the small businesses crushed by the city’s lunatic covid restrictions, you ask? Well, they get $62 million total.”

“Focusing our attention and money on people who contribute nothing, who only detract from the project that is this country, who don’t help their communities or anybody’s community, who hurt other people, who live solely for themselves, who are a danger to the rest of us … that’s insane.”

“Politicians are making it much easier to be a homeless drug addict in the United States and much harder it is to be a law-abiding member of the middle class.”

“What’s the effect? Well, let’s see. The middle class is dying and we now have record numbers of drug-addicted vagrants. What does that tell you? It tells you that incentives work. If you destroy the nuclear family, which they have, if you decriminalize drugs, which they have, if you hand out tents and needles to addicts, what do you think is going to happen? You’re gonna get more addicts living in tents.”

“The solution is as simple as the problem. Here’s the solution. Stop putting up with it. Say no. No, you can’t smoke meth in the park. You’re not allowed to crap on the sidewalk. Pull up your pants and get the hell out of here. Go somewhere with lower standards. Head for a place where politicians don’t care about their people, because we do care. This is our city, you’re not allowed to wreck it, you didn’t build it.”

“That’s not hard. That works. We know it work because that’s how societies functioned for about 2000 years.”

Media has knives out for Biden

What we’re seeing here is the media’s attempt to essentially scapegoat Joe Biden for their own complicity in being on the wrong side of America’s class divide.

Published

Tucker questions why the media who were rabid for Joe Biden just a year ago seem to have turned on him. Highlights include:

“This is an ominous development. In fact it’s not an exaggeration to say that if this trend continues, it is the end of the Biden presidency.”

“The media are the only reason Joe Biden is president in the first place. Biden didn’t campaign for the job, he didn’t hold rallies or give speeches or tell the public what he might do if elected.”

“No, for nearly a year Joe Biden stayed home, hiding in terror from infectious voters. Instead he let news organizations make his case for him, which they assiduously did. The media hid Biden’s faults, they attacked and censored his critics.”

“The media foisted this Biden calamity on the United States. They got him elected, then they lied and distracted the population as he and the marionette operators who controlled him wrecked a lot of this country. That happened, and it’s too late now to deny responsibility. These people are fully implicated in what they did.”

“Donald Trump was just too scary. Trump was an emergency, so we had to suspend the Constitution and make this into an unfree country. We had no choice. But now that he’s [Joe Biden] in office, some of these people are apparently having second thoughts now. But, why now?”

“No one in the [democratic] party thinks independently, that’s not allowed. Everybody in the group must say the very same thing in concert with everybody else in the group all the time, period. It’s like a North Korean singing troupe. Deviations are punished.”

“Think for yourself for even a second and you are denounced as a conspiracy theorist who thinks horse de-wormer is medicine.”

“What we’re seeing here is the media’s attempt to essentially scapegoat Joe Biden for their own complicity in being on the wrong side of America’s class divide.”
