Democrat Senator Elizabeth Warren is calling for an investigation into the rapid increase in turkey prices as Americans face sticker shock at the grocery store. In a letter sent to Assistant Attorney General of the Antitrust Division Jonathan Kanter this week, Warren is asking the Department of Justice to investigate the poultry industry. She's blaming a rise in prices on "corporate greed," rather than on President Joe Biden's inflationary policies. "The price of turkey has increased by 24% over the past year, far outpacing other Thanksgiving foods,


Good idea, let's have an investigation. Or, better yet, maybe Liz could just re-read her textbook from Macroeconomics 101.

Go a bit further. Call for an investigation on the rising prices of everything which is producing a lower standard of living.

Put a sock in it......... This is a PR stunt to A; deflect from the real causes of inflation and B: make it look like "You care" about the "little guy". The true cost for turkey is or was about 2.70$ something a pound. That price WILL go up further due to energy costs, shipping costs and labor costs. You can get turkey substantially cheaper this time of year because retailers sell them at a loss expecting you to buy all of the fixins from them too. Three months ago, turkey was selling for almost 3$ a pound. I bought turkeys at Winn Dixie for $0.49 a pound. The same turkey is selling for $0.89 at Walmart. Prices have gone up for very simple reasons. Energy costs have gone up Supply shortages Labor shortages resulting in higher wages for new hires and increasing overtime due to staffing issues. Forced layoffs/firings due to the so called "vaccine" I just saved the federal government several million dollars investigating the obvious.

I remember when mortgage brokers were prosecuted for not lending to poor people. They called it red lining. Then the law was changed and a few years later they were prosecuted for predatory lending........ Because they loaned money to poor people.

I learned, in one of my undergraduate business courses, that grocery stores use 'loss leaders' to get people into the store to buy other items. Turkey at thanksgiving and Christmas is a loss leader. Loss leaders year round are milk, coffee, mayonnaise. (or at least they were in the 1960s.) I would think Cherokee Lizzie would have learned that at some point.

Why the need to investigate? Lying, scheming, and despicable Raggedy Ann said price of a turkey only up $1 over last year, which is of city’s lie. Publix last year was $1.29/lb., but was $2.29/lb., this year. So a 20kb. turkey was $20 more than last year!

Evie Toombes, a 20-year-old equestrian show jumper from Lincolnshire, is suing her mother’s general practitioner, Dr. Philip Mitchell, for “wrongful conception” after he allegedly failed to advise her mother to take folic acid supplements before getting pregnant that she claims resulted in her birth defect, according to The Telegraph.

Being wrong is a tough pill to swallow. Tougher for some than others. Admitting you’re wrong, particularly when you’re the President of the United States, can be even harder. Even more so when everything you do turns into a disaster and your really boneheaded decisions lead to crisis after crisis. From the border crisis to the price of oil to rising prices and a supply chain disaster, Joe Biden’s presidency has been an abject failure from the beginning.

Vice President Kamala Harris is being increasingly alienated in the White House as her approval ratings plummet — as the first female veep feels she’s not getting the same support President Biden gives to white male politicians, according to a detailed new report. Despite their public show of unity, Biden and his right-hand woman have a dysfunctional relationship that has reached an “exhausted stalemate,” CNN said based on interviews with nearly three dozen insiders. At a time when the president would usually be expected to promote his vice president as a future replacement in the White House, Biden has instead been sidelining Harris as a potential liability, the report said.

Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation into the Trump-Russia probe has further discredited the infamous Steele dossier, which provided the roadmap for the liberal media to paint the former president as compromised by the Kremlin and even a possible sexual deviant. Durham indicted Russian national Igor Danchenko, who is believed to be the sub-source for former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele, who compiled the dossier. The scandalous dossier – funded by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign through law firm Perkins Coie – provided the liberal media with countless anti-Trump headlines, cable news segments and helped set the tone for years of daily, feverish Russiagate coverage.

California is set to adopt new math teaching principles that are based in critical race theory. These changes, which include deemphasizing calculus and pulling programs for academically gifted students, will "apply social justice principles to math lessons." These guidelines do not instruct educators to teach critical race theory, but rather use critical race theory as a guide for the formation of teaching principles. Critical race theory is not being taught to students, but taught to teachers, who are then meant to use it to formulate their own practices.

Millions of citizens long ago concluded that professional sports, academia, and entertainment were no longer disinterested institutions, but far Left and deliberately hostile to Middle America. Yet American conservatives still adamantly supported the nation’s traditional investigatory, intelligence, and military agencies—especially when they came under budgetary or cultural attacks. Not so much anymore. For the first time in memory, conservatives now connect the FBI hierarchy with bureaucratic bloat, political bias, and even illegality. In the last five years, the FBI was mostly in the news for the checkered careers of James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Robert Mueller, Lisa Page, and Peter Strzok. Add in the criminality of convicted FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith.
