The media is trying to paper over one grand Biden failure on the economy

Published

Joe Biden’s approval rating among the American people has cratered.

But it would be difficult to learn that fact by watching the corporate press.

Now the media is trying to paper over one grand Biden failure on the economy.

Joe Biden and the Democrats have been attempting to gaslight the American people on economic issues.

People are feeling the crunch of inflation—the worst it has been in at least 40 years—and supply chain shortages, yet the so-called mainstream media are soft-pedaling the problem.

Biden Chief of Staff Ron Klain stupidly said inflation was a “high-class problem” and recently said that there were “encouraging signs” in the economy, both of which were untrue.

And the employment numbers that the administration is crowing about—despite there still being a jobs shortage thanks to reduced labor force participation—will take a hit as the Federal Reserve continues to hike interest rates in order to combat inflation.

Now the corporate press is mum on poor GDP numbers.

Newsbusters reported that “the NBC, CBS and ABC morning news shows completely ignored a devastating report showing the economy shrank more than expected in the first quarter. The Bureau of Economic Analysis reported on May 26 that gross domestic product (GDP) contracted by 1.5 percent over the past year, worse than the Dow Jones estimate of a 1.3 percent tightening. The result even beat the U.S. government’s own estimate of a 1.4 percent drop in GDP released last month…But ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS Mornings, and NBC’s Today and 3rd Hour of Today gave the GDP news zero coverage on their May 26 broadcasts.”

The bad economic news underscores just how little trust the American people have in Biden to steer the country on this issue.

CNBC reported that the GDP downturn resulted in “the worst quarter since the pandemic-scarred Q2 of 2020 in which the U.S. fell into a recession spurred by a government-imposed economic shutdown to battle Covid-19.” 

The Biden administration has desperately tried to blame inflation on “Putin’s price hike,” but even Democratic strategists have admitted that was bad messaging because Americans remember that gas was going up prior to Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine.

In reality, two major causes of the inflationary crisis are too much stimulus into an overheated economy, and regulation and belligerence toward the oil and natural gas industry.

The corporate-controlled media can’t tell the truth, so they just ignore the news altogether.

Joe Scarborough just compared Joe Biden to Jesus during the weirdest Morning Joe episode yet

Democrats are going mental after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade

There seems to be no end to their bizarre responses. 

Like Joe Scarborough comparing Joe Biden to Jesus during the weirdest Morning Joe episode yet.

Nobody really knew how delicate Democrats were until they lost their ability to have universal abortion-on-demand. 

The temper tantrums they’ve thrown over the past few weeks have proven one thing: there’s no telling how far unhinged leftists will go. 

Recently on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, raving leftist Joe Scarborough fell down a strange rabbit hole comparing former President Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff, former Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC), to one controversial Bible figure. 

In a heretical rant, Scarborough claimed that Meadows “really played the role of a Pontius Pilate – while American democracy, about to be crucified by this armed mob, he just said, ‘I’m going to wash my hands of it.’” 

Considering that it was the legitimacy of Joe Biden’s win — not democracy — at risk that day, the comparison between the January 6 scuffle and Jesus Christ’s crucifixion is beyond bizarre and blasphemous.  

Scarborough then launched into a weird plea for witnesses to change their testimony — with all the fervor only a card-carrying member of the Never-Trumper cult could muster. 

“I just want you to know, I just want you to know, before you start getting ready to get your criminal defense attorneys and going to jail, I just want you to know, our door is still open,” he said.  

The MSNBC host then continued with his bizarre rant with a sort of political end times warning. 

“If you lied, if you need, as they say in the business, some time to refresh your recollection and maybe go back and clean up previous testimony, the door’s open,” Scarborough intoned ominously. “But like Noah’s Ark, that door is going to close soon.”

He wrapped up the segment by going into a long bit with his guests gushing about the “brilliance” of the January 6 Committee which has “played everything right.”

Funny how this is the first Congressional committee that has ever had to hire the former president of ABC News to create a primetime documentary to convince people to buy what they’re selling.

If they were dealing in basic facts and the unvarnished truth, the January 6 Committee wouldn’t have to be “playing” anything. 

Instead, leftists are using the committee — created by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) — as a vehicle to funnel taxpayer money into a massive mudslinging campaign against Donald Trump. 

And because they’ve branded it as “news,” corporate-controlled media outlets have also been allowed to make unlimited contributions to Democrats’ cause by giving the committee endless hours — and millions of dollars — worth of free press. 

What’s really telling is that they haven’t been able to make a clear and compelling case despite having such a massive advantage over Donald Trump and his supporters. 

The January 6 Committee can only hope their dog and pony show will make people so sick of the whole thing that they give up and just assume there’s some sort of truth behind the pageantry.

Joe Biden snapped on a reporter for one unbelievable reason

Published

The Biden administration is crumbling in real time.

Joe Biden’s policy failures are too big even for Democrats to ignore.

And Biden snapped on a reporter for one unbelievable reason.

President Joe Biden and the Democrats are out of answers.

Their excuses for the country’s current inflationary crisis are not satisfactory for anyone other than the most diehard Democrat loyalists.

And President Biden was asked a question about the economy that caused him to lash out at a reporter.

During a press gaggle, a reporter said to Biden, “Economists are saying a recession is more likely than ever.”

“Not the majority of them aren’t saying that,” the President quickly snapped back. “Come on, don’t make things up, okay? Now you’re sounding like a Republican politician. I’m joking. That was a joke. But all kidding aside — no, I don’t think it is.”

“I was talking to Larry Summers this morning, and there’s nothing inevitable about a recession,” he continued. “I — here’s what I think we’re going to be able to do. I think we’re going to be able to get a change in Medicare and a reduction in the cost of insulin.”

President Biden often gets surly with reporters and potential voters when he gets asked persistent questions that he simply cannot answer.

Chances are, the country is already in a recession, which is officially defined as a period in which the economy shrinks for two consecutive quarters of the year.

The economy shrank in the first quarter of 2022, and the economic forecasts for the second quarter won’t be released until after June.

Most economists worth their salt expect a recession, including former Obama Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, the man Biden casually name-dropped in his response.

“Look, nothing is certain, and all economic forecasts have uncertainty,” Summers explained recently. “My best guess is that a recession is ahead… I base that on the fact that we haven’t had a situation like the present with inflation above 4 percent and unemployment beyond 4 percent without a recession following within a year or two.”

The economic forecasts for the Biden economy are grim with no way out.

The President is pursuing a radical left-wing “green” agenda at a time when oil production should be ramping up.

Biden is simply catering to the progressive bloc at the expense of the American people.

Inflation has hit 40-year highs on multiple occasions, and most Americans are feeling that pain at the gas pump.

Even people who are not feeling the crunch of gas prices are feeling it at the consumer level, as the cost of goods and services continues to rise across the board.

Joe Biden fell on his face while the “business” press has Hillary Clinton’s back

Published

Hillary Clinton doesn’t lose gracefully. 

And she’s definitely not willing to end her career with back-to-back losses to Donald Trump and Joe Biden. 

Now she’s gleefully taking advantage of Joe Biden falling flat on his face, and the so-called “business” press has her back all the way.

By all rights, Hillary Clinton should be hiding away from the public in shame. 

Recent court filings have revealed just how far the former First Lady turned crooked Presidential candidate was willing to go to fabricate elaborate lies about then-candidate Donald Trump. 

Her campaign’s “Russian collusion” hoax was an elaborate scheme that required white collar thugs to hack servers inside Trump Tower, and then the White House, in an attempt to establish “proof” Russia was interested in giving Trump an edge in his Presidential campaigns. 

Of course, when she couldn’t find any real proof, a purely fictional narrative also got the job done. 

You’d think by now – with the hoax and her role in it fully exposed – she’d have the good sense to let go of this ludicrous and losing angle. 

Instead, she’s breathing new life into it with the help of so-called “business media” outlets. 

You seriously have to wonder what kind of dirt the Clintons have on The Financial Times and Business Insider that would somehow convince editors to run with outrageously lame hit pieces on Vladimir Putin that seem to be calculated to dredge up the ghost of political campaigns past. 

The recent piece in The Financial Times was melodramatically entitled: “Hillary Clinton: ‘We are standing on the precipice of losing our democracy.’”

She started out by sharing a little dirt about one of the most hated men on the planet at this point. 

Referring to her time as Secretary of State, Clinton complained that Vladimir Putin was, “very sexist toward me.”

We had some interesting, even helpful, interactions in private and then the press would be invited in and he would say something insulting about America,” she claimed. “He would then manspread for effect.”

She then quickly transitioned to claiming Putin has a vested interest in Donald Trump winning, claiming the only way the Russian president can win in Ukraine is if Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). 

“If Trump had won in 2020 he would have pulled out of NATO—I have no doubt about that,” she continued claiming. 

She might as well have yelled, “Look, a squirrel!”

Chances are, with Donald Trump staring him down, Putin wouldn’t have had the gall to start anything in the first place. 

After all, Trump was the only President since George W. Bush to not allow Russia to invade another sovereign nation on their watch.

But all Hillary has left in her arsenal is a smart mouth, and the ability to toss around a bunch of predictions like the words coming out of her mouth actually mean something. 

Business Insider was certainly doing its part in imitating the former Secretary of State throwing out all kinds of random facts, noting Putin’s utter failure at virtue signaling to an American feminist audience.

Following a series of bullet points basically laying out Hillary Clinton’s case, the publication included a series of pictures and bullet points listing random sordid details about Putin’s personal life. 

It included bombshells that revealed incredible tidbits like that Putin has “2, maybe 3, daughters he barely ever talks about,” and that he even has an ex-wife. 

Simply shocking. 

Of course, appealing to busybodies like Hillary Clinton is probably the last thing the former KGB Officer has any interest in attempting. 

Then again, Hillary couldn’t care less about Putin beyond making him a handy scapegoat so she’s more palatable to a public she hopes has developed Joe Biden’s memory issues.
