Joe Biden’s and Democrat's weeks of trying to redefine the word "recession" has done little to quell the concerns within even his own party, as nearly half – 47% of Democrats – say they believe the economy is in a recession, says the latest Rasmussen Reports Poll. And, 59% said they agree with the statement, “Democrats inherited an economy primed for an historic comeback, and promptly ran it straight into the ground.”
China's President Xi Jinping delivered a fierce warning to President Joe Biden this morning during a two-hour phone call, telling him, "Those who play with fire will get burned. We hope the U.S. side can see this clearly," as tensions between the two super-powers approach a boiling point while the White House braces for a potential military response to Nancy Pelosi's upcoming trip to Taiwan.
In the aftermath of a soaring inflation report two weeks ago – showing that June's prices were rising at their fastest rate in over 40 years and inflation was at its highest level since 1982 – the Federal Reserve announced earlier today it was again hiking interest rates and would continue its aggressive campaign of increases through the end of 2022. Bank officials signaled more rate increases are on the way.
There’s a critical Mid-Term Election coming up in November, so Joe Biden and his fellow Open-Borders, "Defund the Police," and Soft-On-Crime Democrats want you to believe that they’ve actually been focused on – and have all along cared about – the nation's escalating level of crime. In reality, the only thing they’re focused on is reelection, and they're playing big time defense on crime.
In mid-June the New York Times pointed out: “The (Biden) effort to stabilize the oil market… is at odds with his stated ambition to move the country to Electric Cars & Renewable Energy.” Then on CNN last Thursday, Senior Biden Adviser Brian Deese gave the nation a hint of what's really going on: “You heard from the president today... This is about the future of the Liberal World Order, and we have to stand firm.” It gets worse.
"Over the last year, far more Americans have switched to the GOP – from Denver to Atlanta & Pittsburgh to Cleveland – as Republicans also have substantial gains in counties around medium-size cities. Nowhere is the shift more pronounced – and dangerous for Democrats – than in the suburbs, where the well-educated swing voters appear to be swinging back."
Taking a page out of Bill Clinton's playbook, Joe Biden’s strategy to “deny, deny, deny” there's any link between his policies and inflation is a recipe for failure – and deep, deep recession. But it shouldn't be a surprise to the Biden White House that there are studies documenting the linkage. Americans should expect growth to be terrible, and inflation to rise further well into 2023.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has characterized Biden's "Gas Tax Holiday" idea as a "public relations stunt." Senator Tom Carper – a Delaware Democrat from Mr. Biden's home state who chairs the Environment & Public Works Committee – called the proposal “shortsighted & inefficient.” As the frustration builds, have top party Democrats begun to revolt against Joe Biden?
A whopping 48 out of 50 States now have a higher "Disapproval" than "Approval" rating for Joe Biden's job as president – Hawaii & Vermont are the outliers. Even Biden's home state of Delaware, as well as left-wing bastions like California, Massachusetts & New York all have him underwater according to the sophisticated polling system used by Civiqs.
I appreciate your willingness to act immediately on budget execution of $50 million, as I originally requested is just the first down payment, on supplying ballistic shields to school law enforcement . . . As we move forward this will require additional funds to ensure all officers across the state will have immediate access to these shields. This will need to be part of our base budget.
"This is child abuse & social engineering that school districts and parents have to stand up to. The harm will be to children of color in particular," said lawyer Marc Little, an L.A.-based charter school founder who serves Black & Hispanic students. "Zoom out the lens here – this White House believes children belong to them, not to their parents. This adds to the breakdown of the family, which in part is why we see young men shooting up schools, the majority of them without fathers."
"As the investigation continues, its our duty to evaluate all possible means of making our schools safer to prevent future tragedies and ensure communities across Texas have the mental health resources needed," said Governor Abbott. Details on the Texas "Crime Victims’ Compensation Program" that can help Victims & Families cover the financial costs of Counseling, Medical Treatment, Funerals, and more are included here.
"Texas communities are bearing the burden of the Biden White House's open border policies, and the State of Texas will not allow the inaction of the federal government to impede the safety and security Texans deserve. We will not waiver in our efforts, and we'll continue to deploy all resources necessary," said Gov. Greg Abbott after touring the state's border security assets with the Texas National Guard and the Texas Dept. of Public Safety.
GasBuddy is predicting that gas prices this coming Memorial Day Weekend will not only be higher than any other Memorial Day on record, but will be a full $1 per gallon more expensive than the previous Memorial Day record set in 2014, $3.99 per gallon. And, more and more analysts are predicting continued record prices at the pump, climbing above $6 a gallon by the end of the summer.
"Let us fight with everything we’ve got,” said Vice President Kamala Harris recently. According to a Dept. of Homeland Security memo the U.S. Government is bracing for a surge in violence after the Supreme Court hands down its ruling on potential changes to the infamous Roe vs. Wade decision, which is expected to return the federalization of the abortion issue back to the 50 individual states.
The tunnel exited into the U.S. in a non-descript San Diego Warehouse District called “Amistad Park” – on a street busy with large semi-trailers by day, but quiet by night. After staking out a home used as a stash house, officials began making traffic stops and capturing boxes full of cocaine. The sophisticated tunnel featured rail & ventilation systems, as well as electricity & reinforced walls.
As 58% of Americans now say its difficult for them to afford gas, and 52% say it is difficult to pay their grocery bills, Joe Biden's already low March "Approval" ratings have continued to decline in April – and more than 80% of "Registered U.S. Voters" believe the nation's economy is on the "wrong track." With the 2022 Mid-Term Elections fast approaching, Democrats are not in a good spot.
With energy prices alone having increased 30.3% during the past year, “This is more bad news for workers and local businesses, and another month of raging Bidenflation – which means punishing price hikes, core inflation worsening, and worker's paychecks shrinking," said Cong. Kevin Brady after the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released its April Consumer Price Index (CPI) Report.
While the nation's attention is focused on Joe Biden's effort to fight back accusations of having caused record gas prices at the pump, in a State District Court in Houston a lawsuit between two oil & gas companies has the potential to increase energy costs further – and alter the way midstream companies like them operate in Texas.
The chances of Joe Biden winning the 2024 Democrat Nomination are not looking good. There's not a Democrat I talk to – and there are a bunch with ideologically-diverse views – that thinks he gets the nod in '24. They acknowledge he'll sink them in the mid-terms, and after being assigned the blame will be shoved aside in 2024. The most interesting part? This is being taken as a given by many Democrats.
