No surprise that Lisa Benson, in her typically uneducated ignorance of economic context, wants to focus on the single factor of inflation — the TEMPORARY imbalance of supply with regard to consumer demand — caused by Trump’s devastation of our trade policy, tariff policy, infrastructure neglect and mishandling of the pandemic instead of the long-range booming consumer confidence, strong wage growth, plummeting unemployment, the most jobs created in the first year of a new president EVER in history, investment and capital markets finishing the year at record highs and a strong economic outlook due to infrastructure gains.
The only flaw in Democratic economic policy is their failure to communicate the current strength of the economy and the fast pace of recovery that results in inflation as recovery and demand outpace supply.
But then, unlike conservatives, we don’t have our own 100% wholly-owned captive media like Faux “News,” NoiseMax or OAN, and even the supposedly “mainstream” media, while it does strive towards a standard of journalistic balance, is 100% owned — every single major media outlet, whether broadcast, cable or print — by very wealthy billionaires and corporations representing the special interests of the wealthiest elites who want to hang onto their economic power.
Ms. Benson blatantly ignores the fact that President Biden inherited this mess, just like he inherited the COVID – 19 mess from the inept republigoon president, here trump! Ms. Benson is a good servant/slave for her republigoon masters!
I don’t mind the 7% inflation so much as I mind that my social security hasn’t increased by 7%. With rent at $610/month, I don’t have a lot of headroom before I’m forced out on the freezing streets.
TAX CUTS FOR THE RICH!!!
And maybe invade some country in the middle east.
Another RW meme by a cartoonist that has no concept of supply and demand. During the pandemic, people stayed home, creating decreased demand and also people being unable to work in order to slow the spreading of Covid. This causes businesses to to also slow/stop production to save money and reduce inventory.
When people got vaccinated and were able to resume working, demand increased faster than businesses were able to compensate on slower footing, creating shortages and causing price hikes (supply and demand). unfortunately, supply will lag until enough people are vaccinated and able to resume work, thus increasing supply and reducing costs.
Most of the lag right now are in hesitancy in getting vaccinated, which is mostly in Red states.
So sure, Loony Lisa, blame Biden for something that started under the Last Occupant and is being propagated by RWNJs refusing to get vaccinated and lowering the infection rate. It’s a lazy dodge.
Let’s Go Brandon !!
^^^Lets flag idiots!
The Republicans and Nixon stopped inflation. They froze the wages of all working people. For salaried people there was a loophole, of course, being a Republican act. They would change the job title, give a nice raise, and business as usual. Republicans sure do know where their money comes from.
hi! opie. how’s life out in the cold…?
as concretionist said, inflation is, of course, completely under the president’s control (not)…
QuidproJoe makes Carter look like an economic genius. Oops, I forgot, it must be Orange Man’s Fault.
These useful idiots that post dumb things daily, like Patjade, braindead etc have no idea what’s going on. The inflation is at a 40 year high!! Better get used to the idea of a Republican house and senate, and then, Biden Impeached. It’s going to be sweet! #FJB
I’m sure if the situation was exactly the same other than a republican admin overseeing this mess, the comments above would be exactly the same. /s
Nope you are a sheep following your Democratic leaders down the path of higher taxes & higher inflation
^^ Says the MAGA Cult Follower.
Just 7%? Hold on, it is likely to get worse. Democrats don’t understand the economy and it appears Lisa forgot the blood on Mr. Dementia’s hands. Is he going to start air dropping weapons and equipment for our enemy next?
It would be interesting to see what Branden’s poll numbers would be today if he got ONE TENTH of the firebreathing bad press that President Trump would get EVERY DAY from the media!
I don’t understand.. republicans are all for free enterprise and capitalism. Inflation follows when markets charge what the market will bear.. kind of the definition of “free enterprise and capitalism”.
Is Lisa now wanting socialism were the government controls the price.. And blaming Joe for not being more socialistic.
Isn’t this just Capitalism At Work?
Ever stop to think why the corporations and 1%ers have income growth far in excess of the inflation rate, even with the increase in average wages for workers? it has nothing to do with what the President does or doesn’t do.
It’s Biden/Democrats fault that Exxon Mobil reported very high profits!
Presidents have little impact on the economy in the near term. Any economist would tell you that. There are some small things he could probably do, but the real cause of this inflation is supply and demand, two things he can do nothing about.
Lisa must have been in art class while economics was being taught. Either that or she thinks the president can wave a magic wand and lower prices.
Inflation is a worldwide problem. It is as much Biden’s fault as it is yours. Get over it.
Ignoring the fact that inflation is a world wide issue, not a Biden created issue. Then again, facts mean nothing to someone trying to bring full on fascism to the USA.
A large part of what is being called inflation is because there are many companies using it as an excuse to raise prices far beyond what their actual raised costs are.
So no solution Lisa just recrimination. How positive.
Trump greatly mishandled the Covid outbreaks of 2020. The form of Covid we’re dealing with now is different than the Covid in 2020. Viruses adapt and evolve over time. And when supply chain crunches started to build in countries that also got socked with Covid. Also, in economic recoveries (especially the early stages) demand almost always outpaces supply. Pushing prices up further. The hope is once the supply chain backups ease and people feel safe going back to work, prices should stabilize as a result. In the meantime, the Federal Reserve is seriously considering raising interest rates (like then Fed Chairman Paul Volker did in the early 80’s) to tamp down inflation. That would be bad news for people looking to buy a house or a new car, but good news for people with savings accounts (since interest rates have been close to zero for ages). But I am hopeful that as we head toward mid 2022 the supply chain backups will have eased considerably and prices will have stabilized. In the meantime, Biden is dealing with all the stuff Trump had left for him to clean up (like the Afghani withdrawal, which Trump arranged with the Taliban before he left office). It’s easier to break things than fix them.
Not that anything else is going on, eh, Lisa?
What are you taking to come to that conclusion, B 8671? Must be some good stuff!
Oh, or maybe you are just plain stupid.
It’s only transitory – right Joe?!
Well this will surely cost Americans on top of Bidinflation, thanks dims. Please give the illegals your addresses so you can support them and not burden the taxpayers. Reuters reported:Hundreds of Hondurans and Nicaraguans on Saturday left the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula to march toward the United States, the first such migrant caravan to be formed this year in Central America.The caravan set off days before leftist President-elect Xiomara Castro takes office in Honduras on Jan. 27. She has vowed to revive the economy and combat corruption that stokes waves of mass migration to the United States.The migrants, mostly young people carrying backpacks on their shoulders and women with children, left a bus terminal in the northern city of San Pedro Sula for the border post of Corinto in an attempt to enter Guatemala. Some were pushing children in baby carriages.
As Bidinflation stagnates the nation, the dims are busy spending our hard earned money on this:
NEW: As illegal crossings at the Southern border are expected to hit 2 million for the first time in history in 2021, DHS announces the creation of a new “Climate Change Professionals Program” to support DHS’ “growing focus on adapting to climate change & resilience.” @FoxNews
How about a program to prevent the death, abuse and environmental disasters at migrant camps? Dims invite and support the invasion but take no responsibility for the devastation it causes.
More dim hypocrisy. Minorities are expected to get where they need to be for multiple jabs but can’t get out to vote.
If the Black Mayor of Washington DC can require a photo ID for the 50% black population of DC to enter a building, then how could requiring a photo ID to vote be “Jim Crow 2.0?”t.me/CharlieKirk/6577
I don’t have dim wit logic so please explain how not requiring proof of boosters, when the CEO of Pfizer states that the first two jabs are useless and boosters are necessary, while the vaccinated are overrunning the healthcare system, will protect anyone, AND, if it is about your health and safety, why non alcohol serving restaurants need not adhere to the regulation?
Meanwhile in the hell hole of Minneapolis, more hypocrisy: Minneapolis and St. Paul will require customers to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test to enter restaurants, bars and other entertainment venues, marking some of the most aggressive steps the Twin Cities have taken to curb the spread of the virus.The new restrictions — which will apply to places where food or beverages are sold for on-site, indoor consumption — will go into effect for most businesses Jan. 19, though ticketed events will not be required to comply until Jan. 26. Patrons can provide either proof of vaccination or proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken under medical supervision within the last 72 hours. Proof of booster shots is not required.The orders, which both mayors used their emergency powers to enact Wednesday, also apply to stadiums, movie theaters, bowling alleys, convention centers and other venues that serve food or drinks. St. Paul’s mandate will apply only to businesses that are licensed by the city, meaning restaurants that don’t sell alcohol will not have to follow the new regulation.
Following Dim run city mandates, if it is about burdening the healthcare system, should obese people be mandated to show gym memberships or doctor supervised diet plans in restaurants and bars? Should the wait staff dictate what the obese order? Should they be banned from ordering fast food? Should they be mandated to record and show the number of steps recorded each day?
Why are dim run cities supporting addicts by supporting illegal immigration? Why do they allow the sale of cigarettes and alcohol?

Yes, we were right again. – Gateway Pundit:
On August 29, 2020, we reported that less than 10,000 Americans died from the China coronavirus (COVID-19) alone, or only 6% of what was being reported. This was based on CDC data we shared in our article.
This post received a huge response with millions of Americans reading it, sharing it, and writing about it. President Trump, Donald Trump, Jr., Candace Owens, and others retweeted this article and shared their thoughts.
This was too much for the Democrats and their media and fake fact-checkers. Within 24 hours they wrote several articles attacking our post and its contents.
A recent report from the CDC shows that currently the number of deaths that are caused by COVID-19 ONLY are actually 5% and the number may actually be less, because the CDC shares there may be “a lack of detail” about the other conditions that contributed to the death:
So there you have it.
The Gateway Pundit and President Trump were accurate in August.
Now that Walensky admitted 4 or more comorbidities, let’s look back at September of 2020:
So these supposed “fact-checkers” completely made up statements we did not say and called us liars based on their made-up statements:
In addition, the fact-checkers took offense with our statement that the CDC ‘quietly updated’ their numbers related to COVID-19. (But the CDC updates its numbers without notice, without explaining or identifying changes, without keeping an inventory of changes)It’s obvious Democrats and their media and fact-checkers don’t have a problem with our calculation or the source of our data. They have a problem with our message.
The Democrats’ entire political strategy depends on the seriousness of the coronavirus. They can then blame President Trump and also argue for mail-in voting in the hopes of stealing the election.
Obviously, our report foiled their plans and now they are furious.
We don’t blindly believe in your fact-checkers; we don’t close our eyes and ears to the eventual facts. Like your precious masks, the virus of truth passes through. Deal with it.

Fact checking the Factcheckers:LOCKDOWNS DIDN’T WORK
Two weeks to slow the spread! Remember when they told us staying home would keep us safe? The results are in, and that wasn’t true. At all.LOCKDOWNS DIDN’T DO ANYTHINGChristian Bjørnskov from the Center of Economic Studies found: “The evidence presented here suggests that lockdowns have not significantly affected the development of mortality in Europe. They have nevertheless wreaked economic havoc in most societies and may lead to a substantial number of additional deaths for other reasons.” SOURCE: CESThe European Journal of Clinical Investigation found: “while small benefits cannot be excluded, we do not find significant benefits on case growth of more restrictive [nonpharmaceutical interventions].” SOURCE: EJCIA University of Chicago study showed the virus spread MORE in homes than workplaces.

Why didn’t they fact-check any of the above legitimate sources when they were published before her fact-check.

Reuters claim: “Some posts on the issue of lockdowns are missing context, and some present information that is contradicted by international studies. While it is true that more restrictive measures that aim to control the spread of SARS-CoV-2 can have an impact on income and mental health, multiple studies suggest that stay-at-home orders and other nonpharmaceutical interventions have a determining role in reducing the transmission of the virus” SOURCE: ReutersLockdowns only reduce transmission until you finally leave your house and interact with people again.And as previously mentioned, studies found households had HIGHER transmission rates than businesses.Politifact claim: “Another study […] concluded the ‘effectiveness’ of these orders depends critically on the cooperation of the public.

Jonathan Isaac’s comments still stand the test of time, hmmm. “What is it about the vaccine that makes you hesitant to get it?”
“I’ve had COVID in the past. Our understanding of antibodies and immunities has evolved since people gotten insane and won’t turn off CNN. But with my current age group, my fitness level, and that I’ve already HAD COVID, I see no reason to take the vaccine especially since there’s a risk I could have an adverse reaction to the vaccine itself. Plus, you can still catch COVID if you have the vaccine. I also don’t like how unvaccinated people are treated.”He speaks so much truth during a time where truth is all but outlawed, classified as either “hate speech” or “misinformation.” But he’s right. On all counts. Taking a vaccine, a therapeutic, or really anything can put you at risk. Seriously, who among us hasn’t swallowed water the wrong way and choked until we cried. That’s my point. Whatever we do, there’s a risk. So don’t try to wiggle out of it.
Natural immunity should count for something, if not MORE than a vaccine. What the hell do you think the vaccine is supposed to replicate anyway? The immunity process.
Thirdly, Jonathan Isaac has noted as many of us have, the barrage of hate sent toward the dastardly unvaccinated population and he’s chilled by it. Also turned off from getting jabbed if guilt is the greatest tool wielded by the all holy vaxxed. Who can still get and pass along COVID, as Isaac points out.
Jonathan Isaac, y’all. Speaking more sense than anyone has so far. And he doesn’t have a science or medical degree.-Louder with Crowder Shownotes
Senator Kennedy: “The Biden administration has mismanaged COVID. It has mismanaged inflation. It has mismanaged the border. And it has mismanaged foreign policy. All in one year. If aliens landed tomorrow and said ‘take me to your leader,’ it would be embarrassing.”
It’s true that Joe Biden has mismanaged his response to the ‘rona, the inflation issue, as well as foreign policy. But Joe Biden has NOT mismanaged our southern border. What’s happening on the border is exactly what Joe Biden wants to happen. Or, at the very least, what the people who control Joe Biden want to happen.-Louder with Crowder
The Left is coming for your kids. We’ve been predicting it, and now, someone is feeling comfortable enough to say it outright: the left wants your children. With everything going on, was this ever in question? They say you shouldn’t determine what your kids learn in school. They take them to gay bars for field trips. And they indoctrinate them into their grotesque, sexual ideology. All the while, they attempt to make pedophilia palatable to the public.
Now, the left is coming out to say parents shouldn’t even have the right to raise their children. This isn’t a Babylon Bee piece. Joe Matthews, writing for the VC Star, writes,
“Institutions from dance ensembles to tech companies have publicly pledged themselves to equity. But their promises are no match for the power of parents. Fathers and mothers with greater wealth and education are more likely to transfer these advantages to their children, compounding privilege over generations. As a result, children of less advantaged parents face an uphill struggle, social mobility has stalled, and democracy has been corrupted. […] My solution — making raising your own children illegal — is simple, and while we wait for the legislation to pass, we can act now: the rich and poor should trade kids, and homeowners might swap children with their homeless neighbors.”
Matthews attempts to base his argument partially on Plato’s Republic, in which children are surrendered to the Guardians to be raised. But while he’s trying to sound well-read and learned by referencing Plato, he simultaneously beclowns himself. It’s widely believed that Plato’s Republic is a satirical piece. Referencing many of the ideas presented in the piece would be like referencing Jonathon Swift’s A Modest Proposal, but then I’m sure Matthews would be okay with eating people, too.
I also don’t believe little Matthews bothered to read Republic in full, either, because the entire birthing program in the book is overtly eugenic. Although, with all the racism on the left, perhaps he does support such a program.
He goes a step further, though, arguing that such a plan would appeal to the left and right in equal measure. Now, his reasoning for the left may very well be true, as he says such a move would “dismantle white supremacy and outdated gender norms,” and the left will go to extreme lengths for such phrases.
But he argues, likewise, that Republicans should support it because they have no issue taking children from illegal aliens who cross the border. Being the ignorant twit he obviously is, Matthews doesn’t bother to take into account that the separation policy at the border began under Clinton (See Flores v. Reno). Whoopsie! Regardless, the contention is asinine. The notion that because criminals can’t take their children to jail with them—a policy that is enforced for all who commit crimes (I’ve yet to see the parent who gets arrested in the U.S. and gets to drag their children to the jail with them)—would translate into, “let’s all just toss our children into a heap and leave” is just… ridiculous doesn’t begin to describe it.
Needless to say, Matthews’ arguments are moronic, half-baked brain diarrhea. If the left was comprised of serious people, this column would have never seen publication. His editor would have looked him in the eyes and fired him on the spot for being such a clod. But the left isn’t serious. They are insane. So, Matthews’ editor read it over, gave him a thumbs-up, and began to dream about all the children he’d try to collect.
They want your children, y’all. There’s no denying this truth. The battle started a while ago, and we’ve not been so good at even holding the lines. Parents have begun waking up, recently, but it’s time to take the fight to them and reclaim your children from the hands of those who would have them stripped away from you.-Louder with Crowder
