Over the past couple of months, Allison, a wife and mother of a toddler and teenager in Chicago, says she’s been spending about $50 more each week on groceries to feed her family—and that’s at a discount supermarket chain, Aldi’s. “I used to spend $70 a week, but all of sudden this summer, I noticed that I couldn’t leave the store without spending at least $120,” said Allison, who works in education.(Snip)For households earning the US median annual income of about $70,000, the current inflation rate has forced them to spend another $175 a month on food, fuel and housing, according to Mark Zandi, chief economist


Janet and Jerome wouldn't miss 10 times that amount and besides, the burdens of Bidenomics are a small price to pay for No Mean Tweets and having the newscasters use their happy voices again.

This story is very easy to believe. My wife and I make a pretty decent living and don't live extravagantly, yet I have noticed a significant uptick in what we are spending monthly. For those at median income or less, I can't see how anyone could make ends meet these days. Everything is ridiculously overpriced and getting worse.

Heck, yes, gas alone will account for a bunch of that. Fortunately, we are in a position to deal with it, but I know that a lot of people are really being hurt by Traitor Joe's intentional inflation, in cahoots with Nutty, Nasty Nancy.

That is absolutely correct, and it is more depending on the number in the family. The $175 extra is for an individual living minimally.

I'll surpass that number just on the cost of heating oil alone here shortly. And while I will be able to meet that expense, for the economy at large, it's money that has to be redirected from other, maybe more discretionary purchases, and those businesses will suffer.

Hunter Biden sells five art prints for
$75K each as NYC show pushed back

Posted by Ribicon 10/7/2021 9:58:53 PM Post Reply
At least five prints of Hunter Biden’s artwork have already been sold for $75,000 each and a team of lawyers is vetting potential patrons who plan to attend his upcoming gallery show in New York City—which has now been delayed until the spring, The Post has learned. The Georges Berges Gallery sold the prints before the Oct. 1 opening of a “pop-up” presentation in Los Angeles, a source familiar with the matter said Thursday. It’s unclear who purchased the reproductions—which cost a fraction of the top price of $500,000 for an original piece by President Biden’s scandal-scarred son—or if any more were sold

Military commanders who oversaw a training exercise in which nine service members died were burnt out by the pandemic, and overwhelmed by the prospect of war with Iran and Donald Trump's militarization of the southern border, according to a new report. Eight Marines and one sailor, aged 18-23, died on July 30, 2020, when their amphibious vehicle sank off the coast of California. The armored ship-to-shore transport craft took on water and sank off the coast of San Clemente Island, while returning to the USS Somerset. On Wednesday the results of two investigations into the accident—one from the Marines, one from the Navy—were published.

Joe Biden said Thursday the 'bigger story' isn't that thousands of people are losing their jobs, but that the new mandates are increasing the percentage of Americans in the workforce who are vaccinated against COVID-19. 'These requirements work,' Biden lauded during a speech at a Clayco construction site in Elk Grove Village, Illinois.(Snip)He also said that private business leaders felt emboldened by federal-level requirements for military and government workers to now also demand that their employees are also vaccinated to be able to remain in the American workforce.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is being mocked on social media after he published two posts that mention the latest woke iteration of an acronym for people with different sexual identities—2SLGBTQQIA+—which some likened to an encrypted password or “headbutting the keyboard.” “People across the country are lighting candles to honour Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people who are missing or have been murdered. We must continue to work together, raise awareness, and advocate to end this ongoing national tragedy. #SistersinSpirit,” the prime minister posted to Facebook and Twitter on Monday, referencing the Sisters in Spirit vigil, which honors women of specific racial or sexual identities

President Biden visited the Chicago area Thursday to highlight vaccine mandates imposed by some of the biggest local companies, hoping to rally support for rules that are increasing vaccinations while sparking furious debate over the best way to reach the leery. Mr. Biden said he is pushing employer-based mandates because companies saw their vaccination rates rise above 90% after imposing them. He also believes the economic recovery depends on broad immunization. “Here’s the deal, these requirements are already proving that they work,” the president said during a visit to a Clayco construction site in Elk Grove Village, Illinois. “In the past few weeks, as more and more organizations have implemented

A U.S. nuclear-powered submarine struck an unidentified object in the South China Sea over the weekend, Navy officials confirmed Thursday. The USS Connecticut, a Seawolf-class fast attack submarine, had a collision Oct. 2 while operating in international waters and is returning to port in the U.S. 7th Fleet. Almost a dozen sailors were injured but none of the injuries was considered life-threatening, according to the U.S. Naval Institute. “The safety of the crew remains the Navy’s top priority. The submarine remains in a safe and stable condition,” Navy officials said in a statement. While the extent of damage to the submarine is still being assessed,

Three people at the head of Moderna, the pharmaceutical and biotech company behind one of three approved COVID-19 vaccines in the U.S., have made their debut on Forbes’ List of the 400 wealthiest people in America. Thanks in part to the shot’s success, Moderna’s co-founder and current chairman Noubar Afeyan, co-founder and board member Robert Langer and investor Timothy Springer all nabbed coveted spots in the ranking of the nation’s most rich.

The head of the city’s investigatory agency ripped Mayor Bill de Blasio on Thursday for allowing his NYPD security team to be turned into a “concierge service” for his son. During a press conference following the release of a scathing Department of Investigation report, DOI Commissioner Margaret Garnett declared that the mayor’s security team members have in recent years chauffeured son Dante de Blasio around the five boroughs for personal needs rather than the unit’s intended purpose. “In practice, what is happening is that, you know, it’s not security; it’s essentially a concierge service, primarily for Dante,” she said.(Snip)“If Dante de Blasio has to pick up a prescription

Pfizer Inc and its German partner BioNTech SE have asked the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to expand emergency use of its COVID-19 vaccine to include kids between ages five and 11. When the vaccine was originally authorized for use by the FDA in December 2020, it was only for those aged 16 and older, before being expanded to those aged 12 and older in May. The FDA is planning to move quickly and has a meeting tentatively scheduled to discuss the matter on October 26. Officials are expected to make a decision—which would make 28 million kids eligible—between Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Officials in Sweden and Denmark have paused use of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine in younger age groups due to concerns about the shots causing rare heart inflammation. The two Nordic nations—separated by only a dozen miles of the Kattegat sea area—announced the decision on Wednesday. In Sweden, the Moderna jab will no longer be available to any one born after 1990, or those aged 30 and younger. Denmark has restricted access to the vaccine to anyone under the age of 18.

A new survey shows that U.S. adults, especially millennials, increasingly endorse Marxist views such as the rejection of private property and traditional morality, even though they don’t adopt Marxism as a label. The Cultural Research Center (CRC) at Arizona Christian University, which published the results last week, found in a representative poll of 2,000 U.S. adults that one-third or more endorsed a dozen elements of Marxist theory on issues ranging from racism to God. Pollster George Barna, CRC founder and research director, said the results indicate that 10% of Americans have internalized Marxist ideology and now draw from it in their daily decisions,

Moving on Up: LA and Seattle Homeless

Three glistening new buildings in downtown Seattle with 165 studio apartments — originally to be rented at market rates — will instead house the homeless. The Low Income Housing Institute (LIHI) is buying the buildings with taxpayer dollars for about $50 million, with federal COVID-19 relief funds splitting the cost equally. Seattle City Hall is contributing about $25 million, while also using “American Rescue Plan Act” funds. A large portion comes from Washington State’s Department of Commerce. Left-wing Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, so unpopular she can’t run for re-election, claims the deals will house people quickly and cheaply, compared to the time and cost required to develop similar projects from scratch.

Have we ever had a president who in mere months made so many dumb, intemperate decisions, thereby precipitating major crises? You’d think that the Afghanistan and border fiascos would suffice for one four-year term. But the smart money is that we haven’t seen the last of Biden-manufactured crises. Biden is a nightmare version of Pig-Pen of the Peanuts comic strip.. A perpetual cloud of incompetence, conceits, corruption, and shabby political motives swirls around him. (snip) As Niall Stanage of the Hill put it, “President Biden’s biggest vulnerability isn’t any single issue. It’s the risk that he could be seen as losing control of events.”

"Of course he was aware of the French being upset," Psaki said in response to a question on the matter from Fox News' Peter Doocy. "He of course was aware, the president, of the French being displeased about the deal with the Australians. John Kerry also speaks regularly to the French as part of his role as the climate envoy.

"A person’s right under the Constitution to choose to obtain an abortion prior to fetal viability is well established. Fully aware that depriving its citizens of this right by direct state action would be flagrantly unconstitutional, the State contrived an unprecedented and transparent statutory scheme to do just that," U.S. District Judge Robert Pittman, of the Western District of Texas, Austin Division, wrote in a 113-page ruling.

It should be obvious that no sane parent would ever allow ideology to supersede the proper education of her children. Yet, during the past year, it has become equally clear that many of the nation’s school systems are indoctrinating students using politically tendentious curricula that most of the public considers . . . well . . . insane. This has resulted in widespread protests by parents of all political persuasions to which school boards have responded with stunning hostility. The magnitude of this animus was revealed this week when the National School Boards Association (NSBA) equated parents with “domestic terrorists,” and the Biden administration directed the FBI to investigate them.
