Inflation is here. The Biden administration is lying, the supposed “independent” Federal Reserve is lying. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen is lying. The media is lying, although some have figured out that it’s just impossible any more to say there is no inflation.
You can tell they’re lying by the word games they play with us.
First they came out and said there is no inflation. And they could say that because they would average prices over the previous year, and insist on just telling us only about indexed inflation numbers.
Now they say that yes there inflation, but it’s only temporary – it’s transitory.
Allow me to quote some inflationary figures to show that there sure is inflation and maybe it’s not so transitory. read more

I was recently watching an old video titled, “A Time for Choosing,” by Ronaldus Magnus (h/t: Rush Limbaugh), or Ronald Reagan as non-ditto-heads would know him. Yes, I know and I agree that I’m a total geek.
But we can learn a lot by reading and viewing history, and some of Reagan’s old stuff, soon after his conservative eyes were open, are his most powerful.
Sure, he was an actor, but one could tell when he spoke, that he meant every word he said about conservatism and his love for America. read more
from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
Are corporations seeing a future many of us don’t quite see yet? A future where they have to fall in line and back the “correct” social and environmental issues in order to curry favor with those who really run the world economy – the World Economic Forum (WEF)?
Is it why some 200 top corporate CEOs met in 2019? They came together, as written in Forbes, in what’s called the “Business Roundtable” to “redefine the purpose of a corporation and show the power and importance of business.”
This redefinition included the following aspirations: read more

Critical Race Theory: What It Is and How to Fight It
Critical race theory is an academic discipline, formulated in the 1990s, built on the intellectual framework of identity-based Marxism. Relegated for many years to universities and obscure academic journals, over the past decade it has increasingly become the default ideology in our public institutions. It has been injected into government agencies, public school systems, teacher training programs, and corporate human resources departments in the form of diversity training programs, human resources modules, public policy frameworks, and school curricula. read more

This is terrific and long overdue. States are finally getting smart – seeing the light, as it were. Red States are beginning to act like Red States – like free States again.
Finally following the lead of States like South Dakota and Florida, Governor Gregg Abbott has decided to once again be an intelligent conservative and open the State of Texas up completely. No more Covid restrictions. And worse, he’s has the audacity to allow individuals and businesses to decide if they wish to continue mask wearing and distancing – all on their own. Imagine that.
This, more than anything, will outrage the collectivist, one-size-fits-all left.
Mississippi soon followed the Texas directive declaring their State “free” again. Hopefully, many more Red States will follow. read more

What’s taking so long to pass the latest “Covid Relief Plan?” And why do these politicians want $1.9 trillion?
Let’s do the math and see.
It was clear back in the summer of 2020, I believe, when president Trump wanted to send everyone a $2000 check.
Then Pelosi and the dems got hold of it and basically said, “No way we’re giving Trump a victory like that so close to election day.”
Okay, she didn’t say exactly that, but as we know, everything is political with the dems, so she may as well have, because that was the result. Millions suffered through the holidays. read more

No one likes an energy crunch more than me I’ll tell. When I pull up to the pump and see premium gas, which is what I have to use, for like $2.70 a gallon and regular for like $2.20 or maybe even less, I get really upset.
Long gone are those happy days of $4 plus a gallon of gas. Those were the good ole days I’ll tell ya.
Then Trump screwed it all up. Fixing the economy, record jobs for literally every one. And cheap oil and gas. That bastard!
Something needed to be done about it.
But Joe Biden to the rescue. He’ll set things back to the way it’s supposed to be. So on day 1, he signs an executive order, one of 27, to cancel that damn Keystone XL pipeline. Oh and he’s also planning on decommissioning several more currently operating pipelines just in case canceling the Keystone XL doesn’t drive up gas and oil prices quickly enough. read more
Wait … What?
You mean to tell me that draconian lockdowns, shutdowns, business and school closures, depression, isolation & suicide have, it turns out, not been effective?

Rand Paul’s annual Festivus Report reveals how government forked over millions to universities for ridiculous studies
Sen. Rand Paul’s annual government waste analysis showed that federal bureaucracies wasted millions of dollars commissioning strange research studies at universities.
These studies involved giving cigarettes to kids, developing a smart toilet that videotapes users while they defecate, and testing whether consumers like the taste of cricket powder.

For decades, conservatives and fiscal hawks have been complaining about how much money the federal government spends. And the worst part of it isn’t the spending itself. It’s the fact that no one really knows on what we’re spending trillions of dollars.
Oh sure, on a macro-level, we can look at the budget, assuming we had one, which we don’t, and see that this or that behemoth department or agency gets X billions of dollars. But that’s all we know.
And of course this is done on purpose, so that the public will never discover where all that money is actually going. It’s why over the years, the sheer size of budget bills, or bail-out bills and now stimulus has ballooned to many thousands of pages. It makes it impossible for anyone to read, digest and comprehend who gets what and why.
This was explained rather nicely back in 2009, when democrat Representative, the late John Conyers slipped up at had a moment of honesty at the mic. read more
