The Bidenomics Sham Is Collapsing

Original Article

Posted By: RockyTCB, 9/16/2022 5:45:33 AM

With red lights flashing nearly everywhere, the economy’s prospects look grim. Soaring inflation, crashing home sales, plunging GDP, falling real incomes. No question, the economy is a mess. So why is the Biden administration saying things are going better? It’s not just this week’s “unexpected” 8.3% inflation jump. Or the scary plunge in stock prices, destroying trillions of dollars in household wealth in just days. It’s that the ruling party, the Democratic Party, seems utterly oblivious to the damage it’s done. This week, President Joe Biden touted the “progress”

This administration is not “Oblivious to the damage it’s done”......every damn bit of this mess was intentional in the name of Equity. We’ve had it too good for too long and we must transition to 3rd world status ASAP. 4 million illegal aliens, printing money, sky high inflation and a New Gestapo roaming the land rooting out Americans who aren’t onboard with their program of national suicide, should get it done.

It never got off the ground. We have known from day one of this "build back better" and "reduced inflation" nonsense that it was pure horse apples. They want to destroy the country and call it something else believing that they have a bunch of gullible peasants on their hands. They want civil war to reduce the American populations but they are going to end up facing down a united America and they will simply disappear.

We printed more money (roughly 40%) and produced less value and we're stunned that the ratio of money to value went up! The government just snuck into our homes slashed our mattresses, dug up the coffee cans in the back yard, broke into the banks holding our money, and stole close to half of it. What they did isn't just similar to my metaphor, it produces the exact same outcome simply by different means. Their method went over the heads of some people who can't grasp what happened, is perfectly acceptable to others who are die hard spread the wealth socialists, is thought to be undesirable but better than the fascist alternative by another segment, and some are simply in denial. And if we show up in DC pitch fork and torch in hand we'll end up in the gulag.

Poster 2, we all have targets painted on our backs. The national socialist democrat party has their sights set on destruction of the middle class. They are coming for our individual liberties, our money, property and means of self defense. This is Civil War II. And as you said, “there is no pushback from our side.”

Re #2 - exactly. I caught some of Kevin McCarthy's comments from his appearance on the Maria Bartiromo show the other day and it was embarrassing, disjointed, pathetic. As much as the GOPe hates Trump, they could get a positive message out without saying his name by reminding Americans just how well the country was doing less than two years ago under a different President: energy independence, low inflation, no wars in Eastern Europe, etc.

I truly believe that after Dominion “counts” the votes in the next election in November, the Demoncrats and the GOPeahens will come after our pensions, 401Ks, IRAs and any other savings we have and begin the process of confiscating them “to pay our debts…” If the Demoncrats stay in power the worst is yet to come.

Poster #2- I think the reason there is no push back from the Republican side, is because there's gold in them there hills. I sent PDT a few dollars 5 years ago. Every day, I have to delete an average of 30 to more than 50 emails, basically begging for a campaign contribution, because the dems are out raising them. If you don’t contribute, your accused of no longer being a conservative. There may be a couple of Republicans I'll still support, but rinos like Murkowski, Crenshaw, Rove and their ilk are just in it for the money. It actually boggles the mind, how many pro-Trump candidates there are, when they're soliciting contributions. Running for political office is the new get rich quick scheme!

Recklessly spending money is NOT an economic plan, certainly not one designed to benefit the United States and the majority of its people. This is the beginning consequence of out-and-out theft to benefit a political party and select individuals. Again, we are considered expendable (that is why the invasion of illegals is being allowed to happen) serfs. Break your chains or get used to it.

Perhaps if we keep at it the "man-made" global warming sham upon which the entire Green New Deal war on fossil fuels is based will also collapse. Of course climat is changing, as it always has and always will. But WE didn't have anything to do with it. Rather than dumping trillions of dollars into windmills and electirc cars, that money would be better spend on sea walls, dikes, locks, levees, and irrigation systems, to accomodate the inevitablew changes that will occur no matter WHAT we do.

Bidenomics is a sham that followed the COVIDS CRISIS sham that saw $14 TRILLION printed and spent on empty nonsense so the government could claim to be "doing something". Did you spend your Stimulus money? Grab PPP? Get tested for "free"? Cheer Trump's Magic Elixirs from Pfizer. Moderna, J&J, and others when they hit the street through Operation Warp Speed? Thanks. Hope you got your moneys worth. That government handout spree is the core of this inflation. Now to compound matters comes more spending. More baseless money pumped into the economy to "fix" inflation. California is even sending out "inflation relief" checks. Government always comes through...with the WRONG prescription. No politician wants to cure inflation. It's painful stuff, especially in election years. We will inevitably see a recession, stagflation, an economic retreat that makes this period look rosy. Those who lived through the LBJ to Reagan era know it. We've been there nearly as long as we were in Afghanistan. The cure is to STOP SPENDING BOGUS MONEY. Paul Volcker is the unsung hero of "Reaganomics". As chair of the Federal Reserve he choked off the money spigot on his end and instituted usurious interest rates to suck up the excess in circulation. There is just no way to spend one's way out of inflation. Government will try. Some will cheer. Rosy Scenario will guide the official economic reporting. Actually, she already has.

I have seen at least two articles (I am sure others are coming) that are saying that Trump was poised to ruin the US economy when Biden stepped in and saved it. What we are seeing are remnants which will be mopped up once we vote the Democrats back in power. No details, back ups or data, contrary to the above article, are provided of course. This seems to be the official story until November and they are going to stick to it.

When "Amtrak Joe" Bidet stole the 2020 election and moved into the Oval Office, he inherited an economy that was steadily growing with a Dow Jones Average approaching 40,000,along with a quiet southern border with Mexico. Then "Biden happened" and millions of illegals invaded to soak up welfare and destroy communities and now the Dow is sinking to sub 30,000 levels where Hussein and 'Jumbles' Joe left it in 2016.

Have to wonder why Biden and company persist in saying this garbage, and the only answer is they want their lefty followers to lie for them. Their followers will lie for them. They don't want to be ostracized and canceled from their lefty cliques. They will risk sacrificing friends and family first. This is the life of a lefty. Nothing to envy there. They would rather have followers instead of friends and family.

The reason Bidenomics sham is collapsing is because the US economy is collapsing as a result of his policies. Biden’s war on fossil fuels, fully backed by Democrats, has driven the inflation by making everything more costly. The Democrats have made things worse with their orgy of spend other-people’s-money on impractical projects. The Democrats deserve to go over the financial cliff, but we don’t deserve to be dragged over with them.

Regarding coming after our 401K's, the Democrats have discovered that they can take those with inflation, and are doing it. We have a massive transfer of wealth in this country. The transfer will impoverish the middle class, and all that wealth will dissolve in the hands of the Democrat voters, who will have to have more. Democrats have no concept that wealth in invested, and that investment is what produces goods and services. Without it, there is no production. You can try and explain that to Elizabeth Warren, if you like.

Did the Aug. 8 raid on former President Donald Trump’s Florida home damage his electoral chances for 2024 and those of the Republican Party in the upcoming midterm elections? Data from the recent I&I/TIPP Poll suggest the answer is no. First of all, comparison data from the I&I/TIPP Polls (one taken of 1,182 registered voters online from August 2-4, the other of 1,145 voters from September 7-9) show that those who thought the FBI raid on Trump’s Mar-A-Lago estate would badly tarnish his image in the public eye and damage his future prospects were likely wrong.

Nobody has yet come up with a definitive estimate of the full taxpayer cost of President Joe Biden’s student loan bailout, but the numbers are already staggering. And as budget-busting as this one is, it’s only whetted the Left’s appetite for more loan bailouts. When the White House announced Biden’s plan, they said the cost of the loan cancelations would cost $240 billion over 10 years. The Congressional Budget Office just released its estimate and pegged the cost at $400 billion, plus another $20 billion in costs by the extension of Biden’s “emergency” payment suspension through the end of this year – a suspension allegedly

In his column, Bouie coos about how Trump is “funny, he has stage presence, and he has a kind of natural charisma. He can be a bully in part because he can temper his cruelty and egoism with the performance of a clown or a showman. He can persuade an audience that he’s just kidding — that he doesn’t actually mean it.” Anyone

The storming of the Capitol on Jan. 6 by Trump supporters has been characterized by liberals in the usual hysterical — if not psychotic — overtones that is one of the characteristics of fanatics. And we are most definitely in the midst of a totalitarian movement. Jan. 6 has been likened to the War of 1812, the American Civil War, to the present war in Ukraine, to 9/11, and (need you ask?) to the Holocaust. CNN’s Anderson Cooper, with a straight face, even referred it as the equivalent of the Bosnian and Rwandan genocides. [snip] At any rate, I have a different take on the Jan. 6 “insurrection.”

The White House is preparing for Janet Yellen to leave her post as Treasury Secretary as soon as November as Americans rank the economy as one of their biggest concerns with just weeks until Election Day. Her potential departure is in the early stages and would come after the 2022 midterms, people familiar with the matter told Axios, and no decision has been made on a replacement. Yellen would be the most consequential exit from President Joe Biden's White House so far, especially as the nation grapples with record-high inflation and gas prices and classically defined recession with two straight quarters of negative GDP growth.

Something really strange just happened. On Monday, large underwater “explosions” were detected in the precise areas of the sea where the Nord Stream pipeline system is now leaking. In fact, the explosions were so large that they actually registered on the Richter scale. If someone wanted to purposely damage the Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 pipelines, very large explosions would be needed because those pipelines are extremely thick. So it appears that this was a deliberate act of sabotage, and that is what many European officials are now alleging. But if that is the case, who was behind it?

With six weeks to go until November’s elections, a new public opinion poll in the crucial battleground state of Pennsylvania indicates that Democratic Lt. Gov.

President Biden asked for the late Rep. Jackie Walorski to identify herself at a Washington event Wednesday, forgetting that the Indiana Republican died in a car crash last month. Biden made the embarrassing error while thanking bipartisan members of Congress at a nutrition event near the White House. “I want to thank all of you here, including bipartisan elected officials like Representative [Jim} McGovern, Senator [Mike] Braun, Senator [Cory] Booker, Representative Jackie — are you here?

Sen. Joe Manchin’s humiliation was brought to completion on Tuesday after his Democrat-negotiated permitting reform deal officially fell through.

President Joe Biden used a Rose Garden speech on touting his work reducing healthcare costs to launch a political attack on Republicans, accusing them of plotting the abolition of Social Security if they take back Congress. The warning is designed to win over older voters, a key demographic in November's midterm elections. Yet he ended his political attack with an appeal for Americans to come together, forget the partisan wrangling and cooperate on bringing down costs for families. Biden held the event to advertise that Americans will pay less next year on monthly premiums for Medicare 's Part B plan,
