Democrats Stung by Inflation

Democrats forgot something. When you spend three trillion dollars over an excessive four-trillion-dollar “regular order” budget, push debt over 30 trillion, kill half the energy sector – whether out of good intentions, ignorance, or to “buy votes,” inflation will sting. It does now.

Last data before Midterms show a trap door opening under Democrats, big time. Based on objectively indefensible macro-economic policies, pushed by Senate and House Democrats, Biden, Harris, and media mimickers, the Nation is in “free fall” toward a deep recession.

There is no mystery or speculation about this, despite denials – no surprise. This was predicted – including by AMAC – months ago. Democrats whistled past the graveyard with mass spending (trillions over revenue), ignoring reality. They tricked the media, but not The Economy Gods.

You cannot trick the market, not for long. What has happened is – even using a measure of inflation favorable to the government – Democrats produced a one-month inflation jump of one half of one percent, and 8.2 year over year, worst again in 40 years.

This is bad, but the reality is worse – and Americans are feeling it. Biden twice did a draw on our Strategic Petroleum Reserve – aiming to trick free markets into lower prices before November. It did not work, although it did reduce the Strategic Reserve to a risky low level, the lowest in nearly 40 years.

Never mind the Reserve is to keep us safe in wartime, not to meet a “political crisis” – of the Democrats’ own making – as a midterm rout looms. That is not why the Reserve was created.

Never mind that Biden’s thoughtless energy policy will drive oil and gas to prices not seen in the lives of most Americans, condemning many to cold – or worse – this winter, unable to afford basic home heat, let alone the costs of commuting.

Biden is hammering America’s seniors, hammering everyone on civilian or military, federal, state or private pension, on a fixed income, with any credit cards, mortgage, rent, variable interest rate loan, or need to commute to a job or educational institution. In short – everyone.

Never mind that the so-called Social Security COLA, or Cost of Living Adjustment, which is based on the third quarter of the preceding year, will not keep up with the escalating inflation rate. Last year, it was under six percent as inflation hit nine; this year, it is just over eight percent as inflation looks to hit double digits.

Never mind that Mr. Biden dumbly demonized America’s Middle Eastern allies including Saudi Arabia, while cozying to Iran, the top sponsor of terror, brutal repressor of human rights (kills thousands annually for dissent), and the world’s most vitriolic, radical Islamic regime.  

After snuffing out US energy independence – which would have saved Americans this winter, also keeping gas and inflation down – he begged Saudi for oil, which they quickly rejected. He then asked them to delay production cuts until after the Midterms, a cravenly political act. They laughed at him.

Then, returning Biden’s compliment, they stuck it up his exhaust pipe, cutting oil, production, raising oil import prices, and condemning America. All this is stunning, since Trump brought Saudi to the verge of joining Mideast peace accords, much as Reagan supported them for peace. Now, we have a total loss – another example of Biden’s failed diplomacy hurting Americans.

Never mind that all this was utterly avoidable, that Trump’s team left America with a roaring economy, inflation under two percent, growth hitting five percent, record employment, job growth, wage growth – and across every demographic in America, minority, and majority.

One last reality check: The reported inflation rate is not – in fact – the one you feel, the one that counts.  The way inflation measurement really works is that a “basket of goods” is the sample group. The problem is some things are disproportionately over and underrepresented.

So, in case you feel like your gas costs more than eight percent of what it did last year, you are right. Gas at the pump was an average of $1.98 a gallon on the day Trump left, now nearly $4.00 a gallon, nationally $3.91. Did prices dip a few cents two months ago? Yes. Change anything? No.

Real – broadly reported – numbers for things we need, especially seniors and those hit hardest, are shocking. And like everything else, the Democrats know the truth and will not talk about it. No accountability and no honesty in assessing the impact of their thoughtless policies on people.

Check this out. Real inflation, by way of examples, for “things that matter” are closer to what you feel. What is the real rate? Here are commodity references. Start with this: Inflation is up 13 percent since Biden took office yet only two percent throughout Trump. Does that matter? Um, yeah. 

Now add this. For commodities, as nationally reported, you are looking at over 40 percent inflation for used cars and airline tickets, over 30 percent for home heating (likely to jump), 30 percent for eggs (likely to hit a dollar an egg), 26 percent higher this year for rent than last, roughly 15 percent for milk, coffee, chicken, bread, likely to climb.

So, when push comes to shove, words – especially lies and two-steps – do not buy much gas, groceries, or home heating oil. You might not have liked Trump’s style, might not have liked Reagan’s, but damned if they did not understand economics, life, and costs. This crowd is “out to lunch” – and when the bill comes due in November – it may be high, as it is for the rest of us.

REALLY , the Democrats are stung . The ones trading stocks illegally , selling out America for their profit the ones pushing industries to near collapse such as the gas sector so the nutjobs can ride around in electric cars. How about the American citizen , anyone knows draining the gas reserves is a move by an imbecile then beg for gas from people that hate America. Do you remember the Arab spring and how the American citizens got gassed in that one !!

Fed Debt has gone up 12-years straight thru both Obama & Trump. Biden claims he decreased debt by +300 billion in 2021, but the data I have seen showed another increase in 2021. What is the truth & so now we have 13-years straight of increasing debt thru both Republicans & Democrats. Congress must stop this spending for the sake of our future generations.

They are not ‘out-to-lunch’, they are on the last leg of completely destroying the United States of America. Americans will have to pray, fast and beg the Lord to return to the center of our society. There needs to be repentance for the murder of all the babies who have been aborted with harry a care. Don’t want that baby – kill it. Now, the destruction of little children with demonic sexual perversion, even in pre-school. Gender confusion, little children don’t have gender confusion, as they are still learning what being a boy , or a girl is like. It is the demonic-controlled adults. Only God can save this nation and our children, but the adults who can bring God back are too busy acting like demons themselves. Wake up people, God can only save us if we call upon the Name of the Lord and ask for forgiveness.

I have wondered how many Americans actually pay attention to what is going on outside their daily routines. I’m talking about voters here. How many are low information voters who will vote for the first person who will promise them economic security. Democrats promise a lot but hardly ever deliver. RINOs also promise Republicans yet seldom deliver. President Trump delivered on his promises. Democrats are liars and they destroy everything they touch. RINOs are liars and are not to be trusted either. America needs Trump and serious MAGA candidates.

Seems we need a revolution to get anyone in government to do anything. Vote in more liberals and sit back and watch the republicans and democrats let the chew this once great country up. Revolution for political change and revolution out of hunger are two separate actions with two separate outcomes.

This article is exactly right. Anyone who supports Democrats and Joe Biden is blind to the truth or so focused on some meaningless cause that they have lost their ability to be intelligent. Stupidity often happens when any of us chooses to be blind to facts.

I live in one of the “paradise states” controlled by the new Fascist Democrat socialist party where the half-witted Governor is running on the theme that he has a ‘surplus” after he went and told the good citizens of this state he needed to place Tolls on highways to cover the deficit he and his merry friends caused. They got this “surplus” by overtaxing us. This moron needs to be removed in this next election.

If we can battle the cheating on votes we can start to stop this. If Dems don’t see this mess then there is no hope for the US.

In some areas, and some states, the DemocRats survive and have survived politically for decades going back to the post Civil War era using rigged elections. If the DemocRats were as good at governance as they were rigging elections, this political field in this Nation would be harmonic. But being tied to Communistic tactics and goals, the DemocRat Party has virtually no chance of changing. FOR MANY PAST DECADES GOING BACK TOTHE POST CIVIL WAR ERA, THE DEMOCRAT PARTY HAS BEEN DRIVEN BY A GOAL OF RULING THE NATION … NOT JUST GOVERNING THE NATION.

We now know that SS will increase 9% next year because the dims are in control. This ridiculous
increase ( and I am a recipient) will only add to our unimaginable debt. Thus more inflation.
I received all the Covid payouts and should have received none of them. Yea, I could have sent them back ( and I’m sure many did) but I figured that I had been screwed inthe past and ,also, my father died at age 64 and thus received not a dime of SS. I want to live to be 110 just to stick it to Medicare and SS.

The only people that could have afforded to send their covid checks back were those above the lower middle class level. I don’t know anybody personally that sent theirs back or could have afforded to send them back.Also, I don’t know anybody that can’t use the increase in Social Security checks starting in January. With the cost of living increase, my friends and I need the increase.

Its ALWAYS about the economy stupid. A famous phrase that Bill Clinton fully understood. Abortion,
police “brutality” ( what a crock) , reparations and all the social BS issues mean nothing compared to the economy. The economy alone will slaughter the dims in Nov. And it is caused, as stated above, by Biden’s spend at all cost program. The cost will be paid in Nov 2022 and 2024.
2 years of fame Joe ? Could have been 8.

It’s all about the economy and crime for the average citizen – – but I feel for God, it’s all about the millions and millions of His babies killed in abortions and the child molestation and sex trafficking, and all of this sexual perversion that is happening with our children now. I believe that is how God sees this. As a battle between His goodness, love and purity and Ba’al’s desire to kill, steal and destroy.

Go to CleanElectionsUSA.org. Find your state/community and see if they need people to stand outside near the drop boxes. If there is enough people watching, there won’t be so many trying to stuff the ballot boxes. You won’t rob a bank if there is enough guards. So, do it. Take action. They would like 10 people for each box. We have to beat them at their own game.

How can the democrats be stuned by something they worked so hard to create?

Any honest economist. Financial analyst or accountant could have to them they were creating inflation.

Just like anyone who thinks could tell you there were going to be terrible side effects from the new technology covid shots. To mandate them was beyond irresponsible to continue mandating them now with the side effects known is murder.

Just like restricting port and shipping workers based on the shots was going to cuase shortages. Then to add on top of that Newsom kicked all the semi’s older then 2011 out of california and that was the real cuase of the ongoing shortages.

Somehow democrats just seem to screw up over and over.
