Biden Tanking Economy – 10 Facts

Biden

Biden is tanking the US economy. Ten facts explain what is going on, how Biden’s incoherent economic policies are affecting all Americans, and what to expect. Is recession inevitable? No. Is it becoming likely? Yes.

First, the elephant in the room is inflation. A gallon of gas nips six dollars, edges seven in California. Annual inflation jumped to 8.6 percent in May, outpacing forecasts, the highest since 1981 – will continue.

Sector and commodity prices are telling. Nationally, gas is up 49 percent, fuel oil 106 percent, natural gas 30, high-protein foods like meat, fish, and eggs up 14 percent, food up 10 percent, and electricity 12 percent.

Pause for reality-identification: The electric car craze may slow when people realize electricity in those fancy e-pumps comes from the power grid. The grid is 60 percent run by fossil fuels, the other 40 half nuclear and half renewables.

The more you buzz about electricity, the more oil and gas – and uranium – get used. And the holy grail of wind and solar is pumped up by Biden-Harris-Kerry, exactly nine percent and three percent, respectively.

Note that seniors are hit harder and use more high inflation commodities such as oil, high protein food, electricity, medicines, and things requiring high energy inputs; therefore, Biden’s inflation hits seniors the hardest.

Second, consumer confidence is vital. Why? Because consumption drives the economy, all growth, jobs, innovation, and real wage hikes. How is that doing? Down in May, with inflation and interest rising. University of Michigan survey showed confidence at an 11-year low.

Third, consumer actions are key. Private studies note that Americans are concerned about savings and making regular payments, such as credit cards. A third is now worried, and the number is rising, which is not good.

Fourth, the Federal Reserve is responding to inflation as if driven by growth, which is awkward since growth is only fast by comparison to COVID times, or phantom growth. The Reserve just raised rates “75 basis points,” three times what they signaled. The prediction is rates will now “rise throughout the year.”

What this means is simple – the price of borrowing for anything, homes, cars, schools, clothes, and credit cards will rise. Prices rise not just from inflation but interest rate hikes. This is all a response to Biden’s inflation, driven by an indefensible energy policy and mass overspending.

Things begin to cascade. Inflation, with falling confidence, lower consumption, and higher interest, which also means higher interest in our $30 trillion national debt, will surely trigger higher unemployment or negative growth, that is, a recession or perhaps stagflation.

Fifth, talk about unemployment. Biden and congressional Democrats first gave away COVID relief, much of that disappearing and spent elsewhere, then doubled unemployment benefits – making it better to stay home. This meant fewer people looking for work, causing wages to go up artificially, and again, damage done.

Unemployment is based on jobs open for those looking – not those on the sidelines. So, as all this adds up, a wave of higher unemployment is coming, more people looking, jobs drying up under the pressure of high-interest rates, lower consumption, and tightening of belts.

Sixth, the real estate market has been hot – but is cooling. People fled unruly and rioting cities, resisting “defund police,” – but now interest rates are high, and mortgages will get expensive. Good? Hardly.

Seventh, energy hits everything – and Biden shut down big parts of the sector, reversing energy independence. That drove shortages, price hikes, and inflation, but also hit other sectors like fertilizer (petroleum based) and diesel (used in trucking). Biden’s war on oil is a war on consumers.

Eighth, Congress bears blame with Biden. Overspending is – independent of extra benefits and earmarks – out of control. Congress dumped another $3 trillion into debt, which cheapens the dollar, creates waste, takes private money, and adds to bureaucracy.

Ninth, Biden reversed Trump’s deregulation, putting a new drag on the private sector every day, restricting property rights, income, and jobs. Hundreds of new regulations suffocate job creators.

Tenth, public trust in government is vital, especially for economic decision-making. From taxes to regulation, incentives to forward planning, predictability, and truth are key. Biden has eroded that fast as he pushes fiction as fact and jars investors.

Examples are legion. Biden has soft-shoed his ties to China, pretended killing pipelines was irrelevant, said inflation is “worse everywhere but here” (totally false), Russia’s fault (false), no overspending (false), solved COVID deaths, bad recovery numbers, etc.

In short, the Biden White House, aided by congressional Democrats, is tanking the US economy. Is recession inevitable? No. Are the odds increasing? Yes. Will this bear on midterms? Take a guess.

Article V of the U.S. Constitution gives states the power to call a Convention of States to propose amendments. It takes 34 states to call the convention and 38 to ratify any amendments that are proposed. Our convention would only allow the states to discuss amendments that, “limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government, impose fiscal restraints, and place term limits on federal officials.”We have 19 states that passed the resolution to call a Convention of States. Is your state one of the 19 states that passed the resolution? Help us get the 15 mores states to pass a resolution to call a convention estates.

As the economic crisis and government ineptitude continues to grow…. do you think elections have consequences???? The last POTUS election was rigged and has resulted in the economic and social welfare of this Nation is on the route to calamity. We need term limits on Congresspersons and high Exec Branch Department heads. We need a Balanced Budget Amendment consequences to apply to the politicos when they fail. And we need to fix the voting system to make it rigging proof. Otherwise, things will not get better.

Good stroke Hal – To your point, take the continuing funding resolution and proposed amendments in the U.S. Senate 2021:

It was common knowledge each would fail due to 4 MIA Republican Senators (Richard Burr (R-NC), Lindsey Graham (R-SC), James Inhofe (R-OK), and Mitt Romney (R-UT)). As such, folks should then wonder why it was necessary for any Republican to vote with the Senate Democrat majority, along with Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and 18 other Republican Senators to ascertain bipartisan ranks when the final vote came up requiring a 60 percent majority to pass rather than just a simple majority? 

All of these republicans will answer to their constituents by responding with his/her support of S.J. Res. 6, congress.gov/bill/117th-congress/senate-joint-resolution/6?q=%7B%22search%22%3A%5B%22%5C%22s.j.+res.+6%5C%22%22%2C%22%5C%22s.j.%22%2C%22res.%22%2C%226%5C%22%22%5D%7D&s=2&r=2″ target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow ugc”>S.J.Res.6 – 117th Congress (2021-2022): A joint resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States relative to balancing the budget. | Congress.gov | Library of Congress There is absolutely no doubt that, that legislation needs to be accomplished, but that legislation has been used by all politicians as a sleight of hand because it has never seen the light of day in the last Century and likely won’t see daylight in the 21st Century.

As well, the PAYGO exemption also needed a 60 percent majority to pass — NOW, ask yourself how in the world, with the same number of votes available, on the same day, striking the PAYGO exemption failed, and the continuing funding resolution passed w/o that amendment? Included was the CCP Virus mandate amendments – only a simple majority vote was necessary to tack both those amendments to the continuing funding resolution. Senate Vote 62, to protect the rights of parents failed by 3 votes, and Senate Vote 61, to end the CCP Virus mandate, failed by 1 vote. You figure the political math.

The problems are well documented. The solution is clear. However, millions of Americans choose to be duped by the Socialists (I mean the Democrats), and they believe what the main stream propagandists tell them. I love this country. I do not vote for Socialists. But, I fear that they have done irreversible damage. Even the Republican Party produces many RINO’s who side with the Democrats. I believe we are on the cusp of God’s judgment. He may yet show mercy, but I believe we are in for a lot of pain in the meantime.

Lots of commenters say it’s due to incompetence. While that certainly is true, there’s more to it. All of the Cabinet appointments were based on “checking the right boxes” on the social equity questionnaire and not on merit. Also, and most importantly, swearing allegiance to the Progressive-Socialist agenda. That agenda is what’s driving the deliberate destruction of our country now.

The solution is to pull the offensive weed out by the roots. Every last Progressive-Socialist in our govt. must be removed. That goes their RINO collutionists, too. In a practical sense, that won’t happen. When 39%(according to polls) think the Biden admin. is doing a great job, we are in deep doo-doo.

Depending on who’s poll you are reading, the 39% approval rating for Brandon is wishful thinking at best…Other polls are putting it around 30% & I’m more than suspicious about that number!
Realistically, FJB’s poll #’s are tanking to the bottom of the cesspool…Personally, at this stage of the game, his approval numbers is at or below 20%, meaning approx. 80% of the public disapproves of Biden…
It is now a known fact that Joseph Robinette Biden Jr. is ranked as thee worst president in American history, he actually ranks worse than Jimmy ” the peanut farmer ” Carter, that in of itself, speaks volumes…

There should be Eleven. NMP Biden’s oil production blockade, shutdown, opened the door for oil dependence from other oil producing countries, world wide, specifically Russian oil. Putin immediately use this gift of international leverage to try to sway world opinion as he moved on the Ukraine. Putin’s war on the Ukraine would not have taken place if the United States was still producing and supplying oil. This war should really be called Biden’s War! No, Biden didn’t pull the trigger, but he did set up the target. Its hard to imagine that any democrates still beleive Biden is doing an acceptable job. Ignorance is dangerous, not bliss!

Thanks RBC, mostly a fact based article on our current state, sadly enough… Since we are only (6) days away from the 2nd qtr. of negative GDP growth, I think it is safe to say we are in a recession now, at this late stage it is mostly academic in ether case as the US economy stumbles along due to the complete incomitance of the current/former Obama regime. Does anyone remember where we were in 2008 & 2009 under the Obama administration? What is going on this moment is eerily similar to the early Obama years but this time around the economic damage is predicted to be even far worst…
Only a fool would be doing all these Trump reversals from day one in office, these things are not the results of a fool, they are all part a greater global elite plan to remake America & the world into this so-called Global Reset… In many quarters this so-called global reset is already falling apart as people are slowly beginning to open up their eyes & asking questions to what is really happening, hopefully we can stop it in it’s tracks in all eventualities, perhaps in the Nov midterms, if not, America will potentially be in serious trouble…The hole is getting ever deeper by the day, if we don’t stop this madness soon, we may not be able to crawl out of it! Prime rate currently set at 1.5% & they are shooting for 3.5% over the next (6 ) months, that like all things in this life, is subject to change with inflation currently at 8.6% & rising. For me personally, it feels closer to 17% plus after paying $5.00 a gal for gas & buying groceries with stagflation thrown into the mix for good measure.

Respectfully,
Bill… :~)

Bill, since you brought up the interest rates, I want to add yet another point on the list of destructive actions. While so many of the country’s businesses were shut down, (non-essential, implying that not everyone needs to survive), millions of Americans were living on credit. Now, as they attempt to repay that debt, a dramatic rise in interest will make that process all the more painful and in many cases, insurmountable. This is starting to feel like a rerun of 2008 on steroids! On Obummer’s first watch, the banksters threw people with revolving debt into default interest rates regardless of perfect payment histories, even after the massive government bailouts! I know, I was one of them. When you are paying twice the interest, the principal could take a lifetime to pay off! As they say, follow the money and it’s easier to understand that the beneficiaries of the destruction of America are the culprits, as they usher in the NWO, globalist agenda!

How right you are Bill… It is playing itself out once again, some people are already drowning in insurmountable debt, expect to see foreclosures in the not to distant future begin to ramp up again as the housing market implodes yet again, people walking away from their mortgages, banks left high & dry, eventually folding & closing their doors…
The feds mindlessly raising the prime rates in a vain attempt to contain out of control inflation, but they will continue to print new money & Uncle Joe will continue to spend it with reckless abandon after he sends our 40 billion dollars to another country in addition to the 19 billion already sent to be laundered back to him & his family members, same game plan, he did it as VP & he is doing it again as a faux potus that has no business sitting in the big chair as the tyrant that he is…

Definitely, people are not saving to buy items later on but the younger generation want everything now thus put those buys on credit. Those who don’t make enough are approved for credit when they should be denied, of course, then max-out those cards and now interest will kill most people who have been irresponsible with their spending. The rich will continue to get richer and the poor, poorer.

Max, it brings to mind what happened beginning around 2005 with the housing bubble & by 2008 & 2009, people that NEVER should have been approved for a mortgage in any amount, were getting approved for $450,000.00 & higher mortgages with absolutely no way of making these payments & yet anyone that could walk, talk & breath were approved for a mortgage, hence the housing collapse, people walking away because the mortgages far, far exceeded the value of the homes, so they simply walked away, hence the collapse of the big banks & investment firms, Lehman Bros, Bear Sturns come to mind, not forgetting AIG, all to big to fail…

I belive that this has Obamas name all over it everything that Biden is doin he wants America to collapse. When he became president that was his goal in the first place, Biden is the puppet he can’t even think for his self he just signs everything. Pelosi and Schumer is also in on this, and trying to spend as much money as they can as fast as they can so the infrastructure of America will collapse. This has nothing to do with a green new deal it is all part of a one world government, and they don’t care who they hurt or kill to get their, I know kill is a strong word but looking at the far left track record and supporting the riots ,and dozens of food processing plants burning down or plane crash you know that the far left is behind it because nothing is being done about it and the fake news hasn’t said anything about it, My question is how much more do we have to take before we start seeing the elites get arrested for their crimes .

A few notations to back up Mr. Charles 10-fact article for disbelievers:

Presidential Executive Order 14008, signed 27JAN2021 and published 01FEB2021 govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2021-02-01/pdf/2021-02177.pdf” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow ugc”>2021-02177.pdf (govinfo.gov) was precursor to establishing policy having devastating effect to present and future food and energy security the world over, regardless of never-ending Eurasian and European tit-for-tat wars:

Part I – PUTTING THE CLIMATE CRISIS AT THE CENTER OF UNITED STATES FOREIGN POLICY AND NATIONAL SECURITY.
 
President Biden was energy specific in Section 102(h) where he directed that, “The Secretary of State, the Secretary of the Treasury, and Secretary of Energy shall work together and with the Export-Import Bank of the United States, the Chief Executive Officer of the DFC, and heads of other agencies and partners…identify steps through which the United States can promote ending international financing of carbon-intensive fossil fuel-based energy…in consultation with the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs.”
(Prior to the above directive, Bank of the West, 2018, discontinued fossil fuel-based loans to long time business clients – mine included)

Part II – TAKING A GOVERNMENT-WIDE APPROACH TO THE CLIMATE CRISIS
 
Section 208 specifies, “…the Secretary of the Interior shall pause new oil and natural gas leases on public lands or in offshore waters pending completion of a comprehensive review and reconsideration of Federal oil and gas permitting and leasing practices…”
Section 209 provided the OMB and National Climate Advisor that, “…Federal funding is not directly subsidizing fossil fuels,” and that coordination is had “…to eliminate fossil fuel subsidies from the budget request for Fiscal Year 2022 and thereafter.” (See P.L. 117-103 – H.R. 2471)

As well, Public Law 117-58 govinfo.gov/content/pkg/PLAW-117publ58/pdf/PLAW-117publ58.pdf” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener nofollow ugc”>PUBL058.PS (govinfo.gov) originated in the U.S. House as H.R. 3684 – Investing in a New Vision for the Environment and Surface Transportation in America Act or the INVEST in America Act (2,739 pp with some 536 amendments). The aforementioned title would never have seen the light of day in the Senate, so the short title of H.R. 3684 was changed to read “Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act” in the U.S. Senate on 10AUG2021 to entice about 19 Senate republicans to attach their names to the final 1039-page document and allow President Biden the luxury of calling the $1.2T albatross, “bi-partisan” on 15NOV2021. This law also places the term “intrinsic value” as an asset, e.g., “collateral”. Hang on to your purses and wallets.

There are reams more documents signed by President Biden with bi-partisan blessings of the U.S. Senate to back up all of Mr. Charles 10-facts, and then some. Thank you, Mr. Charles, for putting them in a nutshell.

His handlers, the ones implementing the Progressive-Socialist agenda, knew there would be outrage and blow-back when they started to push their destructive measures. Biden was carefully selected to be the lightning rod. He sold his soul to realize his wet dream of being POTUS. He agreed to do as he was told and his dementia added to his state of compliance. The handlers knew his crusty demeanor & ego could deal with the limited exposure to the press they allowed him to have.
