Can’t Remind People Enough
Not only were gas prices at the lowest level in decades, overall inflation was near 0%, stock prices were at record highs, unemployment was at a half-century low, shelves were stocked, crime was low, and no pointless wars were erupting around the world. All this despite the Covid plandemic. For all Trump’s faults, Americans simply didn’t realize how good they had it.
Obviously, the Russia-Ukraine war has SOME impact on the out-of-control inflation lately, but Western powers clearly don’t want the war to end soon as it provides a convenient excuse for their spectacular failures of the past couple years. It doesn’t take an economics Ph.D. to understand why prices on everything are going through the roof, but since the “Russia Russia Russia” tools in the mainstream media won’t point out the real reasons, let me spell it out for you:
Massive Money Supply Expansion from Government Spending & FED Money Printing. Think of the game of Monopoly. All players have $300 and Boardwalk is put up for auction. The final price will be under $300. Now imagine you gave $5000 from the bank to every player. How much do you think Boardwalk will now fetch at an auction? Annual federal spending has increased by 50 percent since 2017, and that’s without factoring in all the “Covid Relief” bills. And 80 percent of all U.S. dollars have been printed by the FED in the last 22 months.
Energy Prices Are Exploding. This is an obvious result of Western nations hamstringing their own energy production under the BS “climate change” guise. Transportation costs just add to end product prices.
Labor Shortages Are Adding to Costs. Higher wages for everyone sounds great, but all those wage increases are simply added to prices.
Ridiculous Covid Restrictions Are Continuing to Hit the Supply Chains. Mask & vaccine mandates make it more difficult and more expensive to hire workers to drive trucks, pack supplies, unload cargo, and so on. Covid testing for travel just slows down shpping time and adds compliance costs.
The solutions are easy. Cut back the money supply & government spending. Take the handcuffs off energy production. Mediate peace in Ukraine. Get rid of the insanely stupid Covid restrictions. Any economist with a brain could tell you all this, but we know Western leaders won’t listen and don’t give a shit about their citizens. Every decision now is about what cements their own power and forwards their Great Reset plans for the world.
It’s tough to find a more infuriating story the past decade, but I didn’t blink an eye when I saw this report. I guess watching Hillary get away scot-free with virtually every crime in the book has conditioned me to expect this. In your lifetime, how many Americans can you think of who were released after multiple felony convictions while lawyers “worked on their appeal?!” January 6th defendants have spent more than triple the time of Smollett’s full unserved sentence in solitary confinement, many without even being charged with a crime. Is it any wonder why vigilantism is so often seen as the only solution in dealing with the Ruling Class scum that run two systems of justice? You can bet they’ll follow the tried & true formula of delaying court proceedings until people stop caring about the case, then quietly dismiss the charges on a low news cycle day like a holiday weekend.
