Nov 5, 2023 ~ John Stossel, 'The Food Insecurity Lie' Joe Biden says 24 million Americans "suffer from food insecurity!" That sounds like 24M are starving. Far from it. In fact 'food insecure' people are MORE likely to be obese. "Food insecurity is not the same thing as hunger. It just means that they had to rely on cheaper foods, store-brand alternatives ... or reduce variety." This is similar to the lie Democrats and the #FakeNews tell about "food deserts." They get create their stats for food deserts by excluding all stores with sales less than $2 million. But if they include all the stores that sell food, the effect disappears.
Sep 3, 2023 ~ AOC explains inflation: "Propaganda around inflation and cost of living is so powerful, that we forget the very basic fact that corporations set the prices for their products. If a corporation raises its prices, and then makes record profits, that's not some invisible monster. It's just a bunch of greedy shareholders."
Aug 27, 2023 ~ Monica Showalter, 'Woke blue cities defund themselves' Bloomberg: "Nearly 160 Wall Street firms have moved their headquarters out of New York since the end of 2019, taking nearly $1 trillion in assets under management with them." San Francisco is same. Aug 20, 2023 ~ Steve Moore, 'Michigan Is Headed Back to Rust Belt Poverty' Dems repealed "right to work" laws. This bill will not only take away the right to choose from Michigan workers, but it will also do great damage to the state's economy. States that have "right to work" laws create jobs at almost twice the pace of states with forced union policies. Many businesses won't even consider locating a new factory or blue-collar operation in a forced union state. The auto jobs in America will now accelerate their move to the Southern states, which happen to be "right to work." Aug 13, 2023 ~ John Stossel, 'The Fake Climate Consensus' Climatologist Judith Curry says scientists have incentive to be alarmists. Path to "fame and fortune." She tasted it when her research showed hurricanes were getting worse. Not when she found that was in error.
Jul 14, 2023 ~ Max Laraia & Richard Morrison, 'The Carbon-Offset Market Is about to Crash and Burn' Important article. Reveals that the carbon offset market is a total scam. Even GreenPeace, @washingtonpost and ProPublica admits it. Money transfer, no climate benefit.
May 6, 2023 ~ The Biden administration's Federal Housing Finance Agency announced new rules to punish people who have maintained good credit and reward those with bad credit. Those with good credit pay more so those with bad credit can pay less! What could go wrong? They truly are morons.
May 2, 2023 ~ Burton Abrams, 'Progressives Are Declaring War on Basic Economics' "Progressives deny basic economic principles and theory. They deny that incentives matter, that markets work better than government dictates, that scarcity and opportunity costs exist, that the laws of supply and demand are operative, that benefit-cost analyses have merit, and that economic efficiency makes consumers and producers better off." "If progressives deny economics, what criteria do they use for decision-making? They rely heavily on the vaguely defined concepts of diversity, equity, and inclusion." Spoiler alert: Their approach does not work at all.
Apr 6, 2023 ~ Stephen Moore, 'Hey, Uncle Sam: Stop Paying People for Not Working' History of how well welfare reform worked and how all that's out the window now that Biden got rid of the work requirement and now the labor force participation rate is near a record low.
Apr 1, 2023 ~ Vice President Kamala Harris visited Ghana, Africa and promised to give them $139 million. We are borrowing money like crazy, then printing more causing high inflation, yet we can hand out hundreds of millions around the world.
Mar 15, 2023 ~ Biden tweets a letter written by 4 year old 'Charlotte', complaing about the gender pay gap. He says, "Charlotte, I couldn’t agree more. Women lose thousands of dollars each year, and hundreds of thousands over a lifetime, because of gender and racial wage gaps." Gender pay gap has been debunked dozens of times by economists including female economists. Democrats repeat the lie anyway to capture the votes of the ignorant. Its one of many many big lies they tell like systemic racism in policing, climate change is an 'existential threat', etc.
Mar 10, 2023 ~ Stephen Moore, 'America's $100 Billion Climate Change Flop' After wasting over $100B, 2022 had record high CO2 emissions for the US. China is even worse. "$10s of billions have lined the pockets of left-wing environmental and social justice groups."
Jan 27, 2023 ~ Stephen Moore 'It's Official: Trump's Tax Cuts Paid for Themselves' "revenues were up 40% in five years. The evidence through the first three years of the tax cut finds that the share of taxes paid by the wealthiest 1% rose as well." Tax cuts for the rich?
Jan 25, 2023 ~ The EU, whose primary purpose is to extort money from successful and popular businesses, fines Facebook $414 million allegedly for targeted advertising. The EU has previously extorted billions from Apple, Intel, IBM, Microsoft, Google, airlines and many more. The EU is disgusting.
Jan 8, 2023 ~ New book 'The Myth of American Inequality' debunks the myth that there is a lot of inequality in the US. The reported poverty rate is 12% but that doesn't account for transfer payments. Real rate is 2% and those are very difficult cases. Also debunks the stagnant wages myth.
Nov 4, 2022 ~ Bono: “I thought that if we just redistributed resources, then we could solve every problem. I now know that’s not true. There’s a funny moment when you realize that...the off-ramp out of extreme poverty is... commerce, it’s entrepreneurial capitalism.”
Nov 2, 2022 ~ Biden can't say 1 sentence without telling several lies: "Inflation is a worldwide problem right now because of a war in Iraq, excuse me the war in Ukraine. I'm thinking of Iraq because that's where my son died." Inflation has nothing to do with Ukraine and his son died of cancer. In the same speech he claimed he spoke to the inventor of insulin and that he attended an HBCU, also both lies.
Oct 17, 2022 ~ Brian C. Joondeph, 'The National Debt Elephant in the Room' "Each % increase of the federal funds rate translates into over $300 billion in annual interest payments." "There are no good solutions." Printing money causes more inflation, higher interest.
Sep 27, 2022 ~ John Kerry admits the ridiculously named Inflation Reduction Act has nothing to do with reducing inflation. "I'm not sure how much it has to do with inflation, but that's OK." Similar to Jonathan Gruber admitting "Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. … [The] stupidity of the American voter … was really, really critical for [Obamacare] to pass."
Sep 24, 2022 ~ Ben Zeisloft, "'The Myth Of American Income Inequality’: The Federal Government Drastically Overestimates Earnings Disparity" The 'gap' doesn't include transfer payments or account for graduated taxes. Politicians then use the artificial gap to demand more transfer payments.
Sep 6, 2022 ~ Fox Business, "Experts blame green energy policies for Europe's full-scale energy crisis: 'A warning to the US'" 'There's been under-investment in fossil fuels in Europe,' an analyst from research firm Rystad Energy tells FOX Business. Europe is paying for their 'green' policies.
Sep 6, 2022 ~ White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said, "We have created nearly ten thousand million jobs since President Biden took office, which is the fastest job growth in history." That is 10 billion jobs. Fact check: False. #FakeNews
Sep 6, 2022 ~ CA and other Dem states are following Europe and Sri Lanka over the cliff by banning gas powered cars by 2030. This is madness and not remotely possible. The electrical grid is currently failing in CA with just 5% electric cars and almost all electricity generated by fossil fuels.
Aug 24, 2022 ~ Joe Biden announces that he is going to illegally go around Congress to 'forgive' $10,000 ($20,000 to lower income) in student loans for those making under $125K making chumps out of people who paid their own way. The winners are rich colleges and people getting useless degrees. Working class people paying for entitled college students. Expected to cost $300 billion additional dollars we don't have. Will cause even more inflation and hasten the bankruptcy of the US since that $300 billion goes right on the already ridiculous debt.
Aug 22, 2022 ~ Kevin Williamson 'Real Trouble' "The labor-force-participation rate; the share of Americans who either have a job or are looking for one - continues to decline. We have a growing population but a shrinking workforce." "Real incomes have been declining significantly for some time"
Aug 21, 2022 ~ Jazz Shaw, 'BLM [Bureau of Land Management] suspends most oil/gas leases in Colorado' Biden is doubling down on the policies that lost our energy independence and caused skyrocketing energy prices. Beholden to environmental nuts.
Aug 21, 2022 ~ Brian Riedl, 'The Case for Humility in Economics' Fantastic history of many many times economists got major things wrong. “Often wrong, never in doubt” applies not just here but in all disciplines like climate change, #COVID19 'experts', gun control, systemic racism, etc.
Aug 20, 2022 ~ Steven Nelson, @nypost, 'Biden, WH claims US has ‘zero inflation’ despite annual rate remaining 8.5%' "Today we received news that our economy had 0 percent inflation in the month of July." Not even his usual accomplices in the #FakeNews wanted to provide cover for this lie.
Aug 18, 2022 ~ To illustrate how ridiculous the $7500 EV Tax Credit the government just passed is, as soon as they passed it, Fort raised the price of an electric truck by $8500. Just like colleges, not students are the beneficiaries of student loans, car companies not consumers benefit here.
Aug 18, 2022 ~ President Biden signs the ridiculously named Inflation Reduction Act into law. Everyone including the non-partisan CBO admit it will do nothing to reduce inflation. It wastes $750 billion on "climate change" but will also do nothing for the climate. It adds 87000 IRS agents.
Aug 14, 2022 ~ Ryan Mills, 'Schools Are Wasting Covid Cash' Nearly $200 billion was allocated to schools. Far far more than they needed for anything pandemic related. Splurging on everything, contributing to inflation.
Aug 3, 2022 ~ Victor Davis Hanson, 'Why We Lost Trust in the Expert Class' Good list of fake stories pushed on us by the so called experts. All the countries that destroyed their economy or energy and food security by buying into the Green narrative. Covid lies. Economists, generals, intel ops
Jul 29, 2022 ~ David Harsanyi, "The Dems' New Proposal Does Nothing To Lower Inflation" "The bill also dumps another $369 billion into green boondoggles, which also acts as a slush fund for Democrats." Fighting inflation with big spending is like fighting a fire with a flame thrower.
Jul 28, 2022 ~ The US is officially in a recession. 2 consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth. The Democrats simply redefine the word 'recession' to avoid admitting it. The #FakeNews plays along. Even Wikipedia changes the definition for them! We live in an Orwellian dystopia at this point.
Jul 19, 2022 ~ Max Keating, 'California’s New Pro-Union Law Could Grind The Supply Chain To A Halt' "California truckers are protesting against AB 5, a new regulation that would reclassify them as employees rather than independent contractors." They are killing the independent truckers.
Jul 17, 2022 ~ Clarice Feldman, "Sri Lanka learned a sad lesson - mandated “organic farming” proved a horrible disaster. Ghana also face starvation and national collapse as a result of green policies... Farmers in the Netherlands are striking in protest of equally unworkable green mandates."
Jul 16, 2022 ~ Sri Lanka has fallen. Its President had to flee the country. Destroyed via Modern Monetary Theory. Bankrupted themselves with debt and 55% inflation. Got an ESG score of 98 by banning fertilizer and pesticides. Major food shortages. Democrats want to follow right off the cliff.
Jul 16, 2022 ~ Jonathan Lesser, 'New York’s Climate Virtue-Signaling Will Condemn Millions to Energy Poverty' "The 2019 Climate Act’s zero-emissions mandates are infeasible, and the resulting reductions in greenhouse-gas emissions will not improve world climate." Would create massive hardships.
Jul 16, 2022 ~ Stephen Moore, 'How Angela Merkel's Green Agenda Caused the Economic Collapse of Germany' Merkel used to be praised for shutting down nuclear and moving away from fossil fuels toward "green" energy. "Today, the German economy is in tatters." Begging Russia for energy. Rationing.
Jul 16, 2022 ~ Sen. Manchin, one of 2 sane Democrat Senators, kills the climate change part of BBB bill. He understands it is unaffordable, will fuel inflation and most importantly would do nothing to make the climate any better. The rest of the Dems are apololyptic: “We’re all going to die”
Jul 5, 2022 ~ Howard Husock, "Does Affirmative Action in Mortgage Lending Really Help Black Americans?" Short answer: No it hurts them and this is how we got the 2008 financial crisis. Lowering all kinds of standards like credit score, down payment, income req's that existed to reduce risk.
Jul 5, 2022 ~ Now they are back to blaming Putin for gas prices. When asked how long will this last, Biden said, "As long as it takes, so Russia cannot in fact defeat Ukraine." Biden Advisor Brian Deese added "This is about the future of the Liberal World Order and we have to stand firm."
Jul 5, 2022 ~ The Biden Administration is switching from the lie that high gas prices are Putin's fault to blaming gas stations for the price! "Bring down the price you are charging at the pump to reflect the cost you’re paying for the product. And do it now," he yells. Economically ignorant.
Jun 26, 2022 ~ Kevin Williamson, 'Here Comes Fiscal Armageddon' "Fiscal Armageddon is what will happen when the U.S. government’s debt load exceeds its ability to comfortably service that debt." Will be spending more to service debt than anything else. Gov't will choose easy option, inflation.
Jun 23, 2022 ~ Jeff Luse, 'No, Corporate Greed Is Not to Blame for High Gas Prices' Every time oil and gas prices get high, Democrats feel the need to remind everyone they have no understanding of economics. Oil is a commodities. If oil companies controlled their price, why are they ever low?
May 22, 2022 ~ National Bureau of Economic Research paper by economists Casey Mulligan, Stephen Moore, and Phil Kerpen studied the effectiveness of #COVID19 lockdowns. "There is no apparent relationship between reduced economic activity during the pandemic and our composite mortality measure."
May 21, 2022 ~ Women's soccer got US Soccer to agree to pay women and men the same even though the men bring in 7 times the revenue. The men's world cup brings in about $400 million while the women's world cup brings in about $60 million. The men did not fight it. Imagine if the NBA did this.
May 10, 2022 ~ Totally competent and not senile President Joe Biden explaining inflation. "The number one threat is the strength, and that strength that we've built is inflation."
