Economic indicators such as manufacturing production continues to fall. Retail sales fell 1.9% in December. The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on January 12 that inflation rose 7% in the 12 months through December, the highest since June 1982—that’s 40 years. Average hourly earnings adjusted for inflation fell 2.4% during the same time. Housing rental costs were up nearly 18%, the largest increase in history. Yet Joe Biden was delusional when addressing these historically bad numbers by saying: “Today’s report—which shows a meaningful reduction in headline inflation over last month, with gas prices and food prices falling—demonstrates that we are making progress in slowing the rate of price increases.” What?
No wonder Rasmussen Reports indicate that 58% disapprove of Joe Biden’s job performance, 48% strongly disapprove. The guy’s policies are destroying the nation’s economy which is felt most by those of us who are considered the middle-class backbone of the country. You just can’t do what he did and have a good report. Think about it. Within his first week in office, he stopped work order on the keystone pipeline, killing11,400 jobs. The American Petroleum Institute said halting oil and gas drilling on federal lands would cost a million jobs. The Chamber of Commerce estimated the Paris Climate reentry would cost 6.5 million jobs. All in all, the new president may have put over 7.5 million Americans out of work in his first week. Plus, his actions raised fuel costs, which raises the cost of everything. What have you been paying for gas?
Let us remember how the media and the delusional democrats attacked and demonized President Trump. Under just four years of Donald Trump, the economy grew at an average of 2.5% per year, not counting the COVID lockdown. Under the first three years of Trump, unemployment declined to 3.5%. Democrats and the mainstream news media like to say that Trump’s final employment report was far worse than any president, but they fail to say that the COVID lockdown turned Trump’s employment record upside down. Prior to the lockdown, the number of employed Americans broke 25 records, reaching an all-time high of 158.8 million. More Black folk were employed than in any time in US history. All this is wiped out with Biden’s systematic destruction of the economy in favor of statist control and heavy-handed government.
Biden promises to kill the oil and coal industries and do all these things that will financially harm every American. The populated city areas vote him in anyway. Then he does it, costing us all, disproportionately the poor fools who voted for him. Proverbs 18:2 says, “A fool has no delight in understanding, but that his heart may discover itself.” You would think that when a guy says he is going to put you out of work, raise your taxes, and his actions will raise the cost of living for everyone, that people would understand his words. Even with all that, he says we are making progress. Progress at what? Destroying the nation and enslaving its citizens? How much foolishness does it take to have at least minimal understanding? Biden’s foolishness is both intentional and delusional. Nevertheless, it’s…Say it with me… Stupidocrisy.
