Joe Biden Speech About American Jobs and Economy

Poor Joe Biden and his team of handlers. They just don’t understand why their most recent attempt to gaslight all of us isn’t working. We’ve learned through the online news magazine Politico that the White House is perplexed about why all their rhetoric patting themselves on the back for the economy isn’t convincing the American people that everything is just fine.

The term ‘gaslight,’ by the way, comes to us from the 1944 Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer film of the same name. In the classic movie, Boyer attempts to convince his wealthy wife, played by Bergman, that she’s losing her mind by manipulating and undermining her perception of reality, enabling him to steal her rather fabulous jewels.

Politicians do this to us all the time. In our case, our freedom and future is at stake. To name just a few existential gaslighting abuses we’ve endured, consider the “mostly peaceful” riots of 2020;  assurances to this day that our southern border is “closed;” Biden’s trumpeting of the “successful” withdrawal from Afghanistan; how according to Biden we were “not going to get COVID” if we got vaccinated. There are dozens more probably coming to your mind as you read this. Now, we can add the Biden administration’s patronizing claim that the economy is great, but there’s a “disconnect” between how Americans feel about it versus how good it really is.

In other words, just call us Ingrid.

In Biden’s effort to convince the American people that we can’t believe the reality of our daily experiences, his team of low-rent con artists has opted to embrace the idea of “Bidenomics,” as though it were a good thing. They’ve decided the slogan will help along with their new narrative. That it’s not the economy that’s in trouble, it’s the emotional instability of Americans that’s keeping us from enjoying Biden’s alternate fake reality. Politico’s story presents a rather frantic effort to explain why the slogan transformed as happy talk is “struggling to catch on.”

How do they know? This CNN poll from earlier this month provides more than a hint: “Biden’s overall approval rating stands at 41% in the new poll, about on par with where it’s been since the spring. His approval drops to 37% when Americans assess his handling of the economy and further still to 30% for his handling of inflation. Among political independents, a scant 26% approve of his handling of inflation…The public remains broadly negative about the state of the country, with just 29% saying things are going well in the US and 71% that they’re going poorly, roughly the same as earlier this year.”

Yikes.

Reports are Masters of the Universe running around the White House, trying to look busy as the world continues to veer toward war. They have been dispersing White House officials throughout the country to tout the Democrats’ spending on Green New Deal money pit projects as an example of the laser-focus Biden has on the economy.

One place they’re not going is the grocery store. We don’t believe the Biden spin on the economy not because we’re nuts but because our daily lived experience includes shocking price increases of basic food staples, with the prices of gas and rent also continuing to go up. But ignore that, they say, look over here where the Biden team is excited about a lithium-ion plant opening for the batteries electric vehicles require, and Vice President Harris’ husband going to Grand Teton National Park to talk about “Bidenomics’” conservation programs. I guess they are too busy to notice a CBS News report headline announcing, “Food prices are rising at the highest rate in decades.”

That report reveals: “Over the past two years, egg prices have nearly doubled, leading some consumers to extreme workarounds like trying to smuggle eggs from Mexico… to save on household funds. Meat, fish, and chicken are all substantially pricier than they were two years ago, as well as cereal and bread, which cost nearly 25% more today than they did in 2021.” The increase in the price of eggs from 2022-2023 has been most alarming, with a 70% increase. Beef prices also jumped again in July 2023.

Moreover, the US Inflation Calculator site, which aggregates data, news, and information relating to inflation, reports: “The average price of food in the United States increased 4.9% in the 12 months ended July, after posting an annual increase of 5.7% in June, according to the latest inflation data published Aug. 10, 2023, by the U.S. Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). As recently as August 2022, the rate of inflation for food at 11.4% was the highest since May 1979.”

As Biden traipses around the country trying to convince us to ignore the skyrocketing daily cost of living, our own government through the USDA warns that food prices will continue to increase for the rest of the year and continue to do so through 2024: “In 2023, all food prices are predicted to increase 5.8 percent, with a prediction interval of 5.0 to 6.6 percent. Food-at-home prices are predicted to increase 4.9 percent, with a prediction interval of 3.7 to 6.1 percent. Food-away-from-home prices are predicted to increase 7.5 percent, with a prediction interval of 7.0 to 7.9 percent. Food prices are expected to continue to decelerate but not decline in 2024. In 2024, all food prices are predicted to increase 2.4 percent, with a prediction interval of -2.8 to 7.9 percent.

Every day we experience the real-life impact of food inflation. The data I have shared with you here is on the internet and available to everyone. But for politicians, these are just numbers on a piece of paper. Human beings never enter the equation for them. We saw their man-made catastrophe full of gaslighting and arrogance unfold during COVID. In this next election, we have another chance not to let this obscene malfeasance continue.

Elections have consequences people. All of this could have been completely avoided if people made a better choice in November 2020. Now unfortunately, we have to live with the consequences of the people that put dementia-ridden Biden in the White House with his merry band of Obama era holdovers pulling Biden’s strings.

Welcome to democrats economics.
Inflation continues rising as fuel prices increase and food prices keep increasing. In past 3 days a lot of food prices jumped a $dollar higher.
And YOU get poorer.
Even the COLA increase in 2024 is a joke. We will stay BROKE since Inflation has already wiped that out with Medicare Premiums Increasing alone.
It’s just like when Obama was ruining (running) things. And apparently, Obama is ruining (running) things again helping Dictator Beijing biden finish what they started..DESTROYING AMERICANS and AMERICA.
This is the PRICE YOU PAY for having TRAITORS RUINING (running) OUR COUNTRY.

Joe Biden is attempting to sell all Americans “Bidenomics”, which is an illusion of all is well & we’re on the road to recovery. The idiot believes in what he’s trying to sell. Obama’s 3rd term has been a disaster so far. Once prices go up, they never go back to where they were – period. Gas in Calif has gone back up to over $5, either someone is lying or the gas companies are gouging us. $5 for a can of soup, really? A box of healthier cereal hovering between $5-7 dollars, really? A hair cut for $25 with modest tip. As a senior on fixed income & public assistance(which I am thankful for), inflation is eating me alive. Enough with the lies.

We all know Bidenomics is working! It’s working to ruin our economy, sell out to foreign interests (China owns ranches now) and, even though we had the cleanest gas production in the world, we sold out to other countries who make the air/climate worse. Personal debt is at an all time high because people can’t afford anything and it goes on the credit card. Downgraded our rating from AAA+ to AA+. So yup that Bidenomics is working – to ruin us.

But they will CHEAT in the next election unless we stop THAT! Just like they did in 2020 and in 2024. That’s why they don’t care about public opinion anymore. Not to also mention, they will have Trump locked up somewhere also. Unless we fix our elections system, fairness in justice or anything else will go away. Then, we will match Venezuela or Argentina or any other third-world country where poverty rules and the elites live in luxury. The Republic is dead right now. I hope we can revive it, or costs are going to continue to worsen.

It’s only going to get worse as oil prices are going up, which means fuel costs go up, and so does everything that trucks have to deliver. A 4# bag of flour was OVER 4.00, a jar of mayonnaise or miracle whip is over 6.00 a quart. EVERYTHING is way more than it was under President Trump. Canned pasta that was .99 is now l.38, everything is like this, I hate going to the grocery store, and I feel for those with children. When they are told so many servings of fruits and veggies/day. When a bag of nectarines was over 9.00 for about 9 pieces of fruit, what do people with a few children do???

WE would not have any of these problems if the democrats were doing their jobs. They are not representing the American people, they represent only their agendas of climate propoganda, spreading wealth among themselves, and getting reelected. The dems programs are costing american families THOUSANDS of dollars out of our pockets each year. They have no plans to fix anything because that would require changing their agendas. Even 26% supporting Biden is a scary figure after 2 and a half years of one failure after another. How could anyone think that it is going to get better under democrat party direction?

What economy? The liberal democrats NEVER EVER had an economic plan from the start. Their only plan was to spend money for Free Handouts to buy Votes and that’s it. Corrupt bills so money spent would come back to them for their bank accounts. Their one and only plan was to destroy America’s economy for the Socialist agenda.

Joe Biden is failing America and Americans on all fronts, every avenue possible!!! I don’t care what Joe says, inflation is still here and causing me problems!! There are still too many prices that are way too high and gas is going up again as is electricity!! Streaming services are feeling brave enough to raise their prices so I have to figure out which one or two of those have to go!! My budget isn’t like the federal budget – I can’t just print money or borrow lots from China!! So, when Democrats decide to do a bunch of ridiculous spending, I can’t keep up!! I hate when Democrats are in power because I personally suffer every time!!!

Bidumb and his handlers have bitten off more than they can handle. They continually tell us “to look over here at the latest crisis they manufactured and think the “dumb” public will forget about all the continual screwups Bidumb & his leftists keep making. 
1. The unsustainable invasion of more than 6 million illegal aliens and increasing every day, since he stole office and appointed Mayorkas Sec. HHS and Garland AG.
2. Bidumb’s stupid withdrawal from Afghanistan that left more than13 Americans dead and left/gave $85 Billion dollars worth of our latest weapons and ammunition for our enemies when we left.
3. Shut down our oil and gas industry causing huge price increases and unemployment.
4. Then Bidumb released oil from America’s Strategic Oil Reserves in a failed attempt to lower gasoline prices at the pump. 
5. Then sold oil from our Strategic Oil Reserve to our enemy, China. (That’s treason) Now the SOR is almost empty and America will be screwed if a war breaks out and Bidumb’s actions have hugely increased increased that potential!
6. Besides shutting down our energy industry, Bidumb is shutting down America’s transportation industry, to be replaced by EVs.
That is a total scam, will result in massive job losses and an unrecoverable depression, before the public sees and understands the loss 
that includes all semi trucks and shipping. This is not feasible! 
7. Michigan is partnering with China to build 2 EV battery plants. Both will staffed with Chinese workers. 
8. Global Warming: another huge scam. No matter how many Trillions America wastes, it will have little to no affect on Earth’s climate!
9. Bidumb’s Dictatorial mishandling of Covid pandemic and forcing the “experimental shots” on everyone regardless of age!
10. Bidumb’s wild spending of many Trillions of dollars (more money than was spent for all of WWII) caused terrible inflation that will  last long after he is gone!
11. Bidumb spending Billions and Billions of dollars on Ukraine War “For as long as it takes” (with no declaration of war nor any plan for ending America’s involvement! This will lead to war with Russia, China and more!
12. All of America’s Dem. run major cities are disaster areas, even to drive through, especially for seniors and children. The sidewalks of all major cities are unsafe and littered with needles, poop & urine and have become open air drug and homeless tent cities.
13. For 8 years, Bidumb’s leftists have smeared Donald Trump and tried to stop or jail him. But there has never been any real evidence of wrongdoing or crime. So after wasting 8 years of Congress time and many millions of dollars, and nothing accomplished, the Dems still keep wasting their and our time. They are afraid of being found out, and imprisoned. 
This all is the consequences of voting for dimocraps. But I have to wonder how many real valid votes were for cast for dimocraps and how much Soros, Suckerburg, Gates and other elites and the Dem run MSM propaganda networks illegally influenced or changed the election outcome?

The “good jobs” and “better pay” part of Biden’s claims only applies to those in Socialist labor unions that Biden is pushing new benefits, laws and legislature to support. The “lower costs” is just a lie. We all know how Biden lies. When the U.S. credit rating is reduced, the world understands the U.S. economy is far from being good.

I am old, almost 80. This is pre-WWII Germany and we have Nazis running this ONCE Glorious country because a ‘number’ (never really determined) ‘might’ have voted for the senile old cellar dweller. The old adage ‘if it walks, talks, etc like a’ it is… well, seems there was enough corruption in 2020 BUT don’t worry, it will be back in 2024 you can be assured. I don’t care if you believe in a ‘Biblical’ resolution (an anti-etc) or the average life and death of a nation (200 years?) but we are there and we are going peacefully into that good night. Our kids, our grandchildren, they are going to be in a world of hurt. India or China will win out, we’re the 3rd most populous country but being diluted by 3rd world criminals crossing all borders and uber-rich egoists who think they will avoid the catastrophe (forgot their history and wait to the Night of the Longknives!). Someone please turn out the lights. Oh, for those of you who have hope, from ’38 to ’45 certain ethnicities had hope, didn’t help, they died.

Handing out money to the masses is a poor economic strategy, and that is precisely what the leftists in government are doing. They throw money at us like pearls to swine because that’s exactly how they think of us. It works to a certain extent, in that it does win votes.But it causes inflation which is an ugly form of taxation, and as Thomas Sowell said, only the government can cause inflation.

People will vote democratic no matter what. The statement that the democrats are for the poor is false. Check your history. Did the welfare system help the colored people? The democrates are for the party not the people. They still have their paychecks while they made the country stay at home without pay. Those that worked had to get shots or be fined. How did the government get so much power over our businesses and our schools. Look what they are forcing on our children. our state went from 35 to 48 in lisiting of schools. Many I know are loosing jobs, retiring, etc. over this stuff that is being forced on us. Surely the people will wake up but is it to late???

I buy eggs from a local farmer, but even they have risen in price because the price of feed went up. The same with meat. Feed for animals has gone up, so has the meat. The climate doomsayers don’t want us to eat meat, maybe they don’t want people to be living on the planet. Maybe they should be the first to leave.

What do Jimmy Carter, Barrack Obama & Joe Biden have in common? Each of them threw the USA into economic chaos, high inflation, high energy costs with their wasteful spending and nonsensical economic policies. What we see today with Bidenomics is a repeat of the Obama era. Ronald Reagan, despite having to battle a Democrat controlled Congress, put the economy back on course. Donald Trump did the same thing after Obama left office, again against a hostile Democrat Controlled House. We never seem to learn from history. Democrats are bad for the economy of this country. The Biden Administration has no credibility when it pretends that the economy is doing great when the average American has seen prices for everything soar due to bad policies. Gas and food prices have risen dramatically and has put an enormous strain on the consumer. Auto prices both new and used are at record highs with the average transaction price of a new car reaching $48,000. All of this is intentional and can be easily reversed as Trump proved in after taking office in 2016. Wake up America and vote for what’s good for the country and your own wallet and pocketbook.
