Failed Energy Policies

| Posted in Blog

We need to talk about how utterly foolish this President’s energy policies are. Here’s the headline from Sunday: “Biden gives Chevron permit to restart Venezuelan oil sales.” Let’s unpack this a little. Americans are paying 17.5% more for gasoline over the last year. Fuel oil (used for heating) is up 68.5%. Total energy costs are up 17.6%. These numbers are directly from the U.S.…

September's Bleak CPI Report

Tags: Inflation

With fresh data from September released earlier this morning, inflation remains bad.  The Consumer Price Index rose 8.2% over the last year, which is a 40-year high. That means on average, the same goods & services you purchased last month cost 8.2% more than they did in September of last year.  And don’t forget, Sept. 2021 was already 5.4% higher than Sept.…

I get a lot of questions about what Republicans will do next year when we take back control of the House of Representatives. These are important questions. After all, we can talk forever about spiraling inflation, record illegal immigration, rising violent crime, foreign policy disasters, fentanyl crisis, “woke” education programs, out of control government bureaucracies, etc. But it’s…

Inflation Still Four Times Higher Than Normal

Tags: Inflation

Inflation data released this morning shows prices are still rising FOUR TIMES FASTER than normal under this administration. In August, year-over-year inflation rose 8.3%. That means on average, the cost of the goods and services you purchased last month were up 8.3% from August a year ago. Pay close attention to how the liberal media reports this news. You’re likely to hear descriptions…

Another Great Sound Title

| Posted in Blog

It’s all smoke & mirrors. We’re shown this massive piece of legislation with a great sounding title, and you’re told the bill does what the title says. Only it’s a COMPLETE LIE! We see this over and over again in Congress, and I’m tired of it! The Democrats’ “Inflation Reduction Act” is just the latest example – I covered this in a previous post a couple of days ago. This will…

A Profound Number

A stack of 1 trillion pennies would reach the moon, come back to earth, and reach the moon again. Compared to millions and even billions, a trillion is a profound number. Think about this: 🔸 1 million seconds is equivalent to about 11 ½ days. 🔸 1 billion seconds is equivalent to about 31 ½ years. 🔸 1 trillion seconds is equivalent to over 31,710 years. Now think about this: since…

9.1%

| Posted in Blog

Just reported moments ago, inflation numbers from last month came in at 9.1%, exceeding EVERY projection. This is truly awful on multiple levels. We are in a serious mess due, in large part, to the excessive spending by Democrats in control of Congress and the President’s policies in the White House. Against all better judgement, they dumped almost TWO TRILLION DOLLARS into an economy…

It's All a Ruse

I’m sorry, but it’s just not possible (or healthy) for me to be on Facebook commenting on every bad policy coming out of this White House.  There are just too many of them. So when President Biden recently suggested a gas tax “holiday” for three months to combat the skyrocketing fuel prices caused by his energy policies, I thought surely that idea would be ignored as an unserious…

Special hearing on Skyrocketing Energy Prices

There’s only one job where you can get away with causing a massive crisis, denying you caused it, pretending to fix it but not really, and then trying to shift blame to anyone else but yourself. That job is being a Democrat president. Yesterday I took an earlier flight to D.C. to participate in a special hearing at the Heritage Foundation on inflation and skyrocketing energy prices…

Rates on the Rise

Here’s a high-level explanation of what just happened today concerning interest rates. I know this is a major concern for many people. Inflation is out of control right now. There are many factors behind rising prices, but a big one has been excessive government stimulus. We’re talking trillions of unnecessary dollars that have been poured into our economy. Sidenote: everyone in this…
