Economist Steve Hanke Takes Jon Stewart to School on Inflation Crisis
A Johns Hopkins University economist wasn’t having any of has-been comedian Jon Stewart’s gaslighting over the true source of America’s inflation crisis: a drastically inflated money supply.
Doocy, Wegmann TORPEDO KJP Over the Left’s Abortion Obsession
In only the fourth White House press briefing this month, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre faced a litany of questions Tuesday about the left’s fixation on abortion (instead of crime or the economy). As we’ve come to expect, Fox’s Peter Doocy and Real Clear Politics’s Philip Wegmann turned up the heat with Doocy asking if the White House is more concerned about abortions than struggling…
NYT Cries Dems Aren't Praising $1.9T Biden ‘Stimulus’ Before Midterms
The midterm elections are three weeks out and The New York Times is screeching at Democrats for not touting President Joe Biden’s inflationary record of printing $1.9 trillion in government handouts.
Priorities: ABC, CBS Give More Time on January 6, Trump Than Inflation
On Thursday morning, ABC and CBS showed what matters to them most. They combined to have spent more time on the last hearing of the House Select Committee on January 6 and the latest leaks against former President Trump than Americans struggling to make ends meet amid record-high gas prices, soaring food costs, and surging inflation.
NBC Wonders: Are We in a Recession? Who Cares! It’s Tough Out There!
Amid their non-Hurricane Ian coverage on Friday, NBC’s Today and the 3rd Hour of Today returned to a recent liberal media trend in defending the Biden administration by dismissing the reality that the country’s in a recession. This time, they wondered if it “matter[s] when everything you buy everyday is more expensive” and “it doesn’t feel good out there.” Of course, nowhere…
'Positive Spin': Nets Isolate Biden From Blame for Inflation Report
While each took a different approach, the major broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, and NBC worked Wednesday to isolate President Biden from blame for the pitiful August inflation report showing it came out to 8.3 percent (when the predicted number was 8.1 percent) with energy, food, and rent still soaring. Instead, some of them trumpeted Biden’s “positive spin” and that he’s “not worried about”…
FBN, NPR to KJP: Where Has Biden Had to Sacrifice Like Real Americans?
Prior to White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre using Thursday afternoon’s breaking news of Queen Elizabeth II’s death to end that day’s briefing, she was asked by reporters from two ends of the political spectrum how President Biden and his family have been affected by record-high inflation and gas prices and whether they’ve cut back on anything. Of course, the stammering, yammering…
Doocy, CBS Reporter Battle Stammering Jean-Pierre on Student Loan Debt
Thanks to President Biden’s seemingly endless vacations, Wednesday marked the first White House press briefing in 15 days and, not surprisingly, Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre’s succinctness didn’t improve. Worst yet, it came as President Biden announced he would forgive $10,000 to $20,000 in student loans for millions of Americans. Sure enough, Fox’s Peter Doocy and Real Clear Politics’s…
Krugman Suggests Dems May Save Civilization with Nutty Inflation Bill
New York Times economic columnist Paul Krugman is now pretending to be a climate expert since his economic record on inflation is just awful. Now, he’s celebrating Democrat senators for allegedly trying to “save” civilization from a supposed eco-disaster with their $740 billion Inflation Reduction Act, projected to worsen inflation.
Nets Trumpet ‘Sweeping,’ ‘Landmark Victory’ for Dems in Spending Bill
Happy days are here again was the mantra Monday for the broadcast network morning news shows following the Senate’s passage of the massive spending boondoggle, deeming it a “landmark,” “sweeping,” and “hard-fought win” for President Biden as Democrats hope to win the midterm elections. This was despite the fact that, tucked inside their exuberant segments, not only was President Biden barely…
Bloomberg News Co-Founder Blames ‘Election Deniers’ for Biden Failures
Bloomberg News co-founder Matthew Winkler came out with one of the dumbest explanations for why consumers believe President Joe Biden’s economy stinks: Blame those darn 2020 “election deniers.”
State-Run TV: Nets Tout ‘Big Win,’ ‘Milestone’ for Lefty Boondoggle
Friday’s broadcast network morning shows were in a jovial mood as they celebrated a “big win” and “milestone” for America as President Biden and congressional Democrats are set to vote on their “historic” and “massive economic plan” they claim will lower inflation, help save the planet, make prescriptions cheaper, and increase taxes.
Too Bad, So Sad: CBS Frets Sinema ‘Could Torpedo’ ‘The Biden Agenda’
Thursday’s CBS Mornings followed yet another segment extolling Kansas voters for defeating a pro-life referendum by similarly cheerleading leftist spending in Congress through the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” and fretting that Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) “could torpedo the whole plan.”
Humpty Dumpty and the Recession
In Washington things are rarely what they seem. It’s why Congress labels bills with names they think will be more palatable to the public rather than a name that would accurately reflect the content of the legislation. Notice how many times over the years the word “civil rights” has appeared in legislation that often has had little or nothing to do with civil rights. Now Democrats have junked…
