Seeing through the gaslight

Does America really think that runaway gas, food, home heating, and consumer goods prices combined with soaring crime and murder rates and rumors of war with Russia, China, and Iran are good for them? Apparently not, since Joe Biden’s approval level is hitting rock bottom. So what does Biden do about it? He calls all the lapdog corporate media that has been censuring all the dissenting information on vaccine mandates to beg them to do the same thing with news related to the economy. And you know what? It worked. Almost immediately, the headlines changed. Biden’s overseeing the most roaring and robust economy of any president in recent memory.

CNN Business reporter Oliver Darcey on Monday, December 6 wrote: “The White House, not happy with the news media’s coverage of the supply chain and economy, has been working behind the scenes trying to reshape coverage in its favor. Senior White House and admin officials–including NEC Deputy Directors David Kamin and Bharat Ramamurti, along with Ports Envoy John Porcari–have been briefing major newsrooms over the past week, a source tells me. The officials have been discussing with newsrooms trends pertaining to job creation, economic growth, supply chains, and more. The basic argument that has been made: That the country’s economy is in much better shape than it was last year. I’m told the conversations have been productive, with anchors and reporters and producers getting to talk with the officials.”

Almost on cue, The Hill’s Max Burns on December 9 headlined “Biden is delivering the fastest economic recovery in history. Why hasn’t anyone noticed?” There were stories about full employment. There were stories about how inflation is temporary.  But Joe Biden can’t sidestep the money hole drain from American’s pockets. Despite the help of the news media, American’s aren’t buying it. An ABC News/Ipsos poll, which in my experience skews results to favor Democrats, indicates that 69% disapprove of how Biden is handline inflation, 57% disapprove of how he is handling the economic recovery—the highest disapproval rate from this particular poll Biden has received during his presidency. Some 61% disapprove of Biden’s handling of the crime rate. This presidency so far has been an unmitigated disaster.

Even the uninformed sheeple that gobble up the propaganda and use gaslighting to navigate through their dark lives are starting to see the problem. Now the White House is wanting to use federal money to fund police forces in the large crime-ridden cities—this, after those very cities defunded the police. If I see another commercial about how Biden’s Build Back Better program won’t cost me one cent, I think I will run out of the room screaming. When you add trillions of dollars in spending and tax increase among the job creators and businesses, it’s going to cost everyone, especially the poor. This seems to America like how the enemies of Israel are described in Psalm 83:3-4, “They have taken crafty counsel against your people, and consulted against your hidden ones. They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation.”
