Joe Biden

You’ll laugh when you hear what this Republican turncoat said about Joe Biden’s economy

Joe Biden’s economy is in complete tatters.

But he still has his shameless supporters in the media.

And you’ll laugh when you hear what this Republican turncoat said about Joe Biden’s economy.

It’s comical to imagine that Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin was ever considered a Republican.

Rubin is arguably the most unhinged Never-Trumper, and her derangement has led her to stump for the Biden administration.

Now she’s calling Biden’s economy “extraordinary”…save for the nasty inflation crisis.

Rubin actually wrote that “if the Fed brings down inflation without driving the country into a recession, Biden’s economic record may be viewed as one of the most successful in history.”

It’s quite the big “if” to wave away record-high inflation, which was precipitated by Democratic policies; the inflation rate of 7.9% is the worst since 1982, and the worst since the 1940s when using the old Consumer Price Index model.

Rubin is putting the burden on the Federal Reserve to rein in inflation, writing, “While Republicans like to blame the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan for inflation, that alone did not overheat our $25 trillion economy. If we want to play the blame game, we should start with the Federal Reserve, whose mandate is to control inflation.”

Interest rates have been artificially low, but that has been the case since they essentially went to zero after the Great Recession of 2008.

Ronald Reagan got runaway inflation under control when Fed Chairman Paul Volcker jacked up interest rates.

But fiscal and monetary policy have been so bad for so long that even small upticks in interest rates will trigger a recession and take a bite out of the employment numbers Biden and Rubin are celebrating.

Even on the jobs numbers, labor force participation has not reached pre-pandemic levels.

Rubin’s cheerleading for the regime has even become embarrassing for Democrats.

Politico wrote that “the White House has encouraged outside allies to share some of Rubin’s articles online. One told West Wing Playbook that they declined to do so because they thought it was just too embarrassing to earnestly share a Rubin column, given her history as a conservative and perceived tendency to pander to the administration. One Post employee said some people in the newsroom are increasingly frustrated that Rubin is parroting the administration’s critiques of the media, which they believe emboldens the administration to push back on journalists even further. Two others say they just try to ignore her or don’t read her columns.”

Thankfully, Trump was able to expose establishment shills like Rubin before the country was lost for good.

Biden’s tall tales are getting so bad even CNN has had enough

Published

The Fake News Media has been running cover for Joe Biden since before he even set foot in the White House.

So-called “journalists” have turned a blind eye to countless lies Biden has told over the year and a half.

But Biden’s tall tales are getting so bad even CNN has had enough.

During the 1980s, conservatives in the Washington, D.C. area would drive around with bumper stickers on their cars that said “I don’t Believe the Washington Post.”

That was 40 years ago!

Now of course, most of what we consider the “mainstream” or corporate media is nothing more than the official public relations wing of the radical Left, or the Democrat Party spin machine.

They crank out articles and news pieces that fit the Left’s narrative.

But every once in a while, even the democrats can push it too far for their friends in the Fake News Media.

That’s what happened recently when Joe Biden’s White House tweeted out something that even CNN and the Washington Post had to challenge.

The official White House Twitter account claimed there was no COVID-19 vaccine available when President Joe Biden took office in January 2021. 

It read:

“When President Biden took office, millions were unemployed and there was no vaccine available. In the last 15 months, the economy has created 8.3M jobs and the unemployment rate stands at 3.6% — the fastest decline in unemployment to start a President’s term ever recorded.”

Wait a minute.

Didn’t a picture of President Joe Biden receiving his first COVID-19 vaccine dose get tweeted out on Dec. 21, 2020?

Yes.  Yes it was.  

Here is the Tweet: 

“Today, I received the COVID-19 vaccine. To the scientists and researchers who worked tirelessly to make this possible — thank you. We owe you an awful lot. And to the American people — know there is nothing to worry about. When the vaccine is available, I urge you to take it.”

According to the “Our World in Data” website, there were some 19 million Americans who had received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by Biden’s Inauguration Day on Jan. 20, 2021. 

And there were 3.5 million Americans who were already fully vaccinated by the time Biden became president.

Joe Biden might want to do some “fact checking.”

The Washington Post’s resident “fact-checker” Glenn Kessler said, “Who’s manning the @WhiteHouse Twitter account? Delete this false tweet. Biden himself has said 8% of seniors had gotten the vaccine on the day he took office. Biden was one of them.”

CNN “fact-checker” Daniel Dale weighed in also. “‘There was no vaccine available’ is very clearly false. More than 3 million Americans were fully vaccinated and more than 18 million had at least one dose by Biden’s Inauguration Day. Biden himself was fully vaccinated. Obviously became more widely available with time, but no doubt, and they’re free to tweet ‘the vaccine wasn’t available to much of the public’ or whatever. ‘There was no vaccine available,’ the end, goes way too far given that there were nearly 19 million people with shots, wrongly suggesting the whole rollout began under Biden.”

When CNN and The Washington Post attack a Democrat, you know something has gone horribly wrong.

Later in the week, the White House “corrected” the Tweet to say the vaccine was not “widely” available when Joe Biden took office.

Joe Biden’s FDA boss claims this non-health issue is the leading cause of death in the U.S.

Published

The Biden administration has made some truly bizarre claims.

And as the country slips further into chaos, their claims get even more surreal.

Now Joe Biden’s FDA boss is claiming this non-health issue is the leading cause of death.

One thing you can say about the radical left, when they go in on a cause, no matter how wrong they are, they go all-in.

Take the Trump-Russia collusion hoax.  

It’s been proven completely false, and even proven that the entire thing was bought and paid for by Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration.

In other words, it’s been proven, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that it was a complete fabrication.

Yet to this day the radical socialist left and their handmaidens in the mainstream fake news media continue to act as if it is real.

Now they have a new cause: stamping out “misinformation.”

That’s right, the very people who keep promoting the misinformation of a Trump-Russia collusion, now are saying they want to stop “misinformation” on social media, and on the internet.

In fact, they have taken it to an extreme no one saw coming.

During a recent appearance on CNN, Biden’s FDA boss Dr. Robert Califf made the wild claim that the leading cause of death in the United States is online “misinformation.”

Yep, he really went there.

So, in essence, the head of the Biden FDA used misinformation to claim that misinformation is the leading cause of death.

You actually can’t make these things up!

Califf made these outrageous remarks during an interview with CNN’s Pamela Brown. But he initially made the same statements at a health conference in Texas in April when he said online misinformation was “now our leading cause of death.”

The FDA head did at least admit there is no way to actually prove any of this before going on to mention heart disease and cancer as other leading killers in the U.S.

But then, shockingly, after just admitting there is “no way to quantify this,” Califf went right back to it and tried to once again make the charge that it is “misinformation” causing the high death rate in America.

He claimed there has been “an erosion of life expectancy,” and went on to say that Americans were living an average of 5 years shorter than people in other high-income countries.

His explanation for this was pure dystopian fantasy.

“But somehow … the reliable, truthful messages are not getting across,” he said, “and it’s being washed down by a lot of misinformation, which is leading people to make bad choices that are unfortunate for their health.”

Unfortunately, we don’t think he was talking about the misinformation and bad choices leading far too many Americans to take untested and unproven vaccines that we now know are at best ineffective, and at worst, deadly.

CNN said something about Biden’s economy that had Democrats hopping mad

Published

Joe Biden’s presidency is on life support.

His approval numbers are dropping, and his legislative agenda is on ice.

And CNN said something about Biden’s economy that had Democrats hopping mad.

CNN took time out of its hysterical pro-abortion propaganda in order to talk about the issue that’s front of most Americans’ minds: the economy.

Democrats are desperate to cover abortion because they have nothing else to run on in the midterms.

CNN admitted that “a majority of US adults say [Biden’s] policies have hurt the economy, and 8 in 10 say the government isn’t doing enough to combat inflation. Only 23% rate economic conditions as even somewhat good, down from 37% in December and 54% last April. The last time public perception of the economy was this poor in CNN’s polling was November 2011, when 18% called economic conditions good. Americans also say they are more likely to hear bad news than good news about the economy, by nearly a 4-to-1 margin: 89% say they’ve heard at least some bad news, compared with 23% who’ve heard at least some good news.”

When CNN is sounding the alarm, it’s time for Democrats to panic.

Biden and the Democrats have tried everything to put a band aid on the economy, but it has not worked

They tried to blame gas prices on “Putin’s price hike,” a talking point that was dead on arrival.

Former top Obama adviser David Axelrod shot that down immediately.

Even a CNN panel said that message was not resonating.

Citing a Quinnipiac poll, host Abby Phillip said, “Americans just don’t buy that this is related to the war in Ukraine, and most of it, frankly, is not. 41% say it’s Biden’s policies, just 24% say the war in Ukraine. 24% also say the oil and gas companies are raising prices. But the White House is trying to do both, blame Putin, blame the oil and gas companies, but Americans just don’t agree.”

Democrats are attempting to thread the needle by saying that greedy oil and gas companies are not pumping oil for some reason, but are also price-gouging.

It’s an absurd proposition.

The truth is that the Biden administration is largely beholden to the environmentalist Left, and they are diametrically opposed to the oil and gas industry.

If Biden truly wanted to alleviate economic stress, he could deregulate the market as Donald Trump did and encourage more production.

But the Biden administration cannot do that without angering the progressives, who have seemingly become the most catered to constituency among the Democrats despite their relatively small numbers.
