Were this a movie the majority of us would be leaving the theater and demanding our money back— no, a f**king recount of every f**king vote from November 2020.
President Biden on Tuesday tried to get ahead of Wednesday’s April inflation report with a speech rehashing his well-worn proposals to reduce prices: Boost subsidies, raise taxes, and increase regulation. He should take Jerry Seinfeld’s advice to George Costanza and do the opposite of his every policy instinct.
The President again called on Congress to pass his Build Back Better, er, sorry, “Building a Better America” plan including more subsidies for green energy, electric cars, child care, housing and more. He also doubled down on his proposed billionaire’s tax—i.e., unconstitutional wealth tax—and Medicare drug price controls.
Mr. Biden again blamed inflation on the pandemic and Vladimir Putin, omitting that Democrats poured kerosene on the accelerating economic recovery last March with their $1.9 trillion spending bill. Inflation was already at 7.9% when Mr. Putin invaded Ukraine (see the nearby chart). At the same time, their policies are hampering the supply side of the economy in myriad and interconnecting ways…
What the country needs is more investment to boost the supply side of the economy, which will increase worker productivity, real wages and living standards. Mr. Biden’s plan to hammer businesses and investors with increased taxes and regulation will do the opposite.
In his speech he again lobbied for Medicare to negotiate drug prices—i.e., price caps—but this will create more pharmaceutical market distortions and suppress investment in innovation. By the way, prescription drug prices have risen a mere 2.2% in the last year. Thank competition for that, not government.
As White House aides whispered to friendly media on Monday, Mr. Biden’s Tuesday speech was really less about inflation and more about setting up the fall campaign against Republicans. He claimed the GOP has no plan for inflation, as if Democrats don’t run Congress and the White House…

We are looking at a nightmare in terms of global diesel shortage that will shock people starting June.

Not a single Democrat in the House has any objection to dumping another $40 billion of untraceable high-grade weaponry into Ukraine — another blank check for continued US military escalation. Every one of them just voted for it, no questions asked

Do you find it strange that we do not dare challenge the prevailing narrative of the ‘democratic’ party of projection and the nation’s socialist media? Especially since questioning electoral integrity is a cottage industry for themselves whenever they lose.
Why does this matter? Consider it from another point of view – why is it so important to the nation’s socialist media and the anti-liberty left? (But, we repeat ourselves.) Why have they obsessed about this for months, viciously attacking anyone who brought up the suspiciously-termed ‘Big Lie’?
Could it be they obsess over this because they are hoping for a repeat performance? In military terms, this is known as ‘preparing the battlefield.’ The Biden Regime already issued a dire warning for the fall, with this key line that shows this is all smoke and mirrors…

When Lufthansa, Germany’s flag carrier airline, left New York for Frankfurt, most, but by no means all, of its passengers were Jews, with about 80% of them being Hasidic Jews bound for Budapest. Because some of the Hasidic passengers apparently refused to wear their masks, once the plane arrived in Frankfurt, Lufthansa banned all but two Jews (men whose yarmelkes were hidden under baseball caps) from boarding their flight to Hungary. This openly antisemitic conduct was bad under any circumstances, but it was especially ugly coming from a German company. After all, in 1938, a year that was the prelude to the Holocaust, the Nazis also imposed collective punishment on all Jews for the “sins” of a few…

You know, Rob, I went to Catholic school in the 60s. The past pedophile priest scandals that erupted over these last few decades I’ve asked that question in regard to priests. As an adult I came to the same ‘grooming’ conclusion we now have w/public school teachers of this sort.

The more TikTok videos I see exposed of these entities (on Libs of TikTok on Twitter) the more they cross that Rubicon of their theater of the macabre in society. These people are so easy to parody now that it’s not necessary because who can tell satire from reality now. AwakenWithJP‘s YouTube videos are typically ridiculously hilarious but this one, seriously, is very close to accurate to actual videos these teachers are shamelessly, willingly and willfully posting of themselves on the social media (owned by China) site TicTok…
