President Biden is Blaming Everyone Else for Surging Inflation

This article appears at The Hill and can be read in its entirety there: The Hill.

“Americans paid more for everything this Christmas, from toys to turkeys. But this “Bah, humbug” reality didn’t start with the Christmas season. Only 1.4 percent when Joe Biden took the presidential oath last January, year-over-year inflation has come in at 5 percent or more for 7 consecutive months. We know inflation is a growing problem because President Biden has repeatedly gone out of his way to shift the blame away from his administration.

“Anyone who fills up at a gas pump, for example, knows what a big bite increasing gas prices are taking. President Biden blames higher energy prices on oil and gas producers. As reported in November: ‘In a letter to FTC chairman Lina Kahn, Biden claimed “there is mounting evidence of anti-consumer behavior by oil and gas companies.”

“Having pledged during the campaign to eliminate fossil fuels from our energy future, the president’s hostility to conventional energy was obvious on Inauguration Day. That was before he axed the Keystone XL pipeline and took no fewer than 24 other actions that raised energy prices. And yet, President Biden won’t fess up about the effect his policies have had on energy prices.”

A U.S. Senator Honors Communists: Guess Who?

By J. Robert Smith

Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal is helping his state’s communist party celebrate it’s 102nd birthday. As the old saying goes, “Show me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are.”

So, Blumenthal would swear he isn’t a commie, but, heck, he definitely has sympathies.

From American Greatness, December 13:

“Blumenthal stipulated that while one doesn’t have “to agree with anyone and everyone” and every party, he was happy “to honor the great tradition of activism and standing up for individual workers that is represented by the three honorees here.”

And to give you a sense of the moral sewer that “Progressivism” has tumbled into, and the disinterest or deliberate ignoring of communism’s evil and destructive impact on the world over the past century, Blumenthal actually suggested to those gathered for the Connecticut Communist Party’s party that – Shh!!! – Republicans are the real threat to liberty and God-given rights.

Again from the American Greatness article:

“Blumenthal told the attendees that the enemies of Communism (Republicans) are trying to ‘restrict Democracy.’

“Our opponents are trying to restrict Democracy. They are threatening the right to vote in state after state, congressional district after district all around the country, and the John Lewis Voting rights Act,” he complained. The senator called any restrictions on voting undemocratic, and vowed to fight against them.”

No matter that the history is irrefutable: Communists (and let’s throw in their kissing cousins, fascists) killed an estimated 100 million people from the start of the 1917 Russian Revolution forward. Communists crushed hundreds of millions of lives though unceasing oppression. It is, without a doubt, the greatest evil unleashed in human history. One can almost characterize it as “satanic.”

For Dick Blumenthal – who lied about his service in Vietnam, by the way – to honor and celebrate communists is on par with honoring and celebrating Nazis.

But that’s no longer shocking from progressive Democrats nowadays.

What Biden’s Nomination of Saule
Omarova to be Comptroller of the Currency Tells Us

By J Robert Smith

Not long ago, who would have believed that an American president would nominate a communist for an important U.S. Treasury job? Not a “I’ve seen the light” repentant communist, like Whittaker Chambers, but a person who must believe that the 1991 collapse of the Soviet Union was fake, like the moon landings that tinfoil-hatters swear never happened.

Joe Biden is the president and Saule Omarova is the communist — or communist sympathizer, depending on reports. Then again, Omarova disavows being a Bolshevik. Easier to slip through the confirmation process with a disavowal, possibly. In any event, Omarova isn’t exactly a small government, free-market sort. Her positions are radical. Marxism (aka communism) isn’t a dirty word among Democrats and progressives nowadays.

Rounding out Omarova’s resumé: shoplifting, which is fitting in that communism is a form of organized thievery. Stalin committed crimes, too.

Once upon a time in America, there would have been collective outrage at plucking a communist or fellow traveler for any role in our government. You see, communism is antithetical to a free society. It’s darkness to our light. But in those bygone days, Americans — Republicans and Democrats — were reared to embrace liberty and the core beliefs that made freedom possible. Yes, we had differences, but we shared a culture rooted in traditional values.

What do Nordstrom’s, Louis Vuitton, and Burberry have in Common?

How’s that defunding and hogtying police working out, Democrats? Ask residents in the California Bay Area and Chicago for feedback. Over the weekend, there were a spate of brazen store robberies (more like gang lootings) in the City by the Bay and the Windy City, among other blue state communities.

From the Real Deal, November 22:

Brazen thieves targeted stores in four Bay Area cities, including a Walnut Creek Nordstrom’s, in a three-day spree that forced officials to restrict access to San Francisco’s Union Square.

Crowds looted and vandalized Union Square, San Francisco’s retail center, on Friday night, burglarizing Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Maxford’s Jewelry, and other high-end brands, the San Francisco Chronicle reported. They also hit cannabis dispensaries around the city Friday night, San Francisco Police Chief Bill Scott said at a news conference on Saturday.

Better to pillage high-as-a-kite, no doubt.

On 9/11, Vote No
Confidence In Joe Biden

The 20th anniversary of 9/11 falls tomorrow. Joe Biden’s abject surrender in Afghanistan led to the deaths of U.S. soldiers and a lot of innocents. Biden needs to be held strictly accountable for his abominable leadership (if you care to call it that).

Here are excerpts from my latest at American Thinker:

On Thursday, August 26, Joe Biden made a contribution to the terror war… against us. On that infamous day, a suicide bomber attacked the Kabul airport, killing 13 U.S. soldiers and at least 170 Afghanis. How many of the dead Afghanis were American citizens is unreported. The deaths didn’t have to happen. Joe Biden made them happen.

Subsequent to the terror attack, in a televised address, Biden brazenly declared what an “extraordinary success” his cut-and-run was from Afghanistan. Only in the morally upside-down world of progressives and jaded D.C. players can ignominy, disaster, and deaths of innocents be the stuff of a victory lap.

(You can read the full article here.)

The men and women (among them first responders) who died on 9/11 and America’s fighting men and women who’ve since surrendered their lives to defeat the Islamic terrorist menace deserve far better from a president. These braves souls didn’t die in vain. They and we the living deserve far, far better from a commander-in-chief than the cut-and-run that Biden gave us in Afghanistan. God bless America.

Calling America a Cult Is Useful for Leftists and Anti-Trumpers

The nature of politics is that people don’t always have to answer for their actions and mistakes. Same goes for life in general. That’s probably a good thing. Count me among those who wouldn’t look forward to such an exercise, at least not in a terrestrial environment. I expect to be held accountable in the next life, but if I can skate for a while, in this one, cool.

Yet, it is frustrating that few significant political actors are held accountable for their roles in putting people in office who then damage the country. It is easy to vote for someone who ends up being a disaster and avoid accountability simply by staying out of relevant discussions. If you are a Jets fan you probably didn’t start a lot of discussions about football last year.

Do Democrats Want a New Trail of Tears?

The times may change, but it’s reassuring to know that some things don’t, like the Democratic Party. Along with the cosmic sins of slavery and abortion, Democrats are chiefly culpable for a sin less often recognized: American Indian removal and extermination, the latter either being an expedient or last resort, depending on circumstances.

Democrats and their progenitors, who long preceded Republicans – Whigs were the minor party during the Democracy’s pre-Civil War zenith – created the template for the relentless subjugation of our red brethren. The Trail of Tears carries the Democrats’ seal.

Biden Looks Moderate Only Next to the Clown Car of Candidates He Ran Against

The Democratic Party has, indisputably, grown more liberal/socialist over the few years. Surveys have shown that 75% of Democratic voters would vote for a socialist. Today, a fair number of Democratic Party leaders are acknowledged socialists, support socialist policies, or try to put a different spin on things by claiming to be “Democratic” Socialists.

That, of course, is a contradiction in terms. Being a Democratic Socialist makes as much sense as saying you support free slavery or non-lethal capital punishment. Socialism, by definition, reduces freedom. That’s the point, and many Democrats are now openly comfortable with it.
