AMAC Exclusive – By Claire Brighn

Biden

As families gather for Christmas this year, it’s impossible to ignore the pinch of inflation that is hitting Americans hard. Seemingly everything – from pocketbooks to grocery store shelves – has been subject to Biden’s looting of the middle and working class to fund Democrats’ far-left priorities. Biden, it seems, is this Christmas’s real-life Grinch.

Soaring inflation has meant that many families can’t afford to have as much around the tree this year – or even at the dinner table. While overall inflation numbers have eased slightly from nearly 40-year-highs, grocery prices are continuing to skyrocket, rising 12% in November. In total, 66% of families say they are worse off financially than last year because of inflation.

In addition to his massive spending packages exacerbating inflation, Biden’s climate agenda has also stolen American energy independence and sent costs ever-higher. According to the Energy Information Administration, it’s about 23% more expensive for Americans to heat their home this year than it was last year. To get in the car and visit family for Christmas will cost about $1 more per gallon than when Biden took office – and airline fares are also up 36% from last year.

In another alarming sign of the economic condition of the country, 401k ‘hardship’ withdrawals have hit a record high already, according to Vanguard – suggesting many Americans are becoming increasingly desperate to make ends meet. Credit card debt is through the roof. As mortgage rates skyrocket, economists warn the Housing Market Index – well below the safe 50 point margin – shows the housing market is in recession territory.

With real wages down, Americans also have less disposable income than when Biden first took office. One recent CNBC survey found that caution around holiday spending is at its highest since 2013. Everything about celebrating the holiday is now more expensive. Those who buy a Christmas tree can expect to pay up to 15% more than last year. When you make dinner, ham will cost roughly 7.8% more and a pie will cost 19.4% more compared to last year. Even milk for Santa is up about 15%. A record number of Americans went to food banks just last month for Thanksgiving.

It’s the same sad story at the border. Christmas, unfortunately, is really ruined for border patrol agents who’ve been struggling to keep their heads above water ever since Biden unleashed a wave of illegal immigration with his open border policies. “Depressed, unmotivated, and frustrated,” is how one border patrol agent described feeling.

Much like the Grinch, Biden doesn’t seem to care at all about how his actions are causing others to suffer. When pressed on the border, Biden said that there are “more important” things going on. His copious use of vacation days and luxurious getaways to Delaware have also tallied up to cost American taxpayers at least $11 million – hardly reflective of a president working hard to alleviate the pain that ordinary families are feeling. While Biden promised that all his massive spending in 2021 would mean more prosperity for families, so far all they’ve gotten is higher bills and financial troubles.

Biden even seems determined to steal the meaning of Christmas from the American people. Just like his speech last year at the traditional National Christmas Tree Lighting on the White House Ellipse, this year Biden made no reference to Christ or the Christian faith, despite professing to be a devout Catholic. Instead, he once again resorted to tired, uninspiring platitudes that the left has long relied upon to sanitize and commercialize Christmas.

One can only hope that, like the redeemed Grinch, Biden decides at some point to put the presents back under the tree. Like in the movie, such action would be relatively simple – reversing the left’s war on American energy, visiting the border as the first step toward securing it, or mentioning God once in a while in his rather draconian “winter of severe illness and death” speeches.

But given Biden’s long track record, it seems unlikely at best that Biden’s heart will grow three sizes – or even one – anytime soon. Short of a Christmas miracle, Americans will likely have to wait until 2024 to send the White House Grinch packing and elect a new leader who will give to, rather than take from, his voters.

First year in my 80 years, that Christmas has been so hard to imagine exactly what’s ahead. I would never have believed that one election could destroy so much hope and joy!

Sarcasm mode on…

Hey, no one ever said our transformation from a constitutional republic paced on personal rights and freedoms and a limited government to a socialist welfare state, where the government would be controlling almost everything, would either be easy or pleasant. Socialism, by its very nature, entails the destruction of the middle class and the wrecking of the economy. Achieving “equality for all” usually means everyone is equally impoverished and miserable in the end. Except for those in charge of the serfs of course. They enjoy the spoils of all the confiscated wealth of the nation, as they rule by edict from their fortified surroundings.

Sarcasm mode off…

Stop looking for Biden to change course or “have a heart”. The man showed who he was for nearly 50 years in Washington, D.C.. Even before dementia he wasn’t someone who should be allowed anywhere near real power. The people running Team Biden don’t care about the American people, so stop expecting some change of heart from the administration. You are of no importance to them. They have a transformational mission to complete. That is all they are about.

Our nation and the world has been sliding down that slippery slope for years. It is just now that more people are awakening to their need for God in their lives, and in the lives of those for whom they vote. No Government can take Christ out of Christmas. Now with funds being tight, perhaps more families will look to the best gift God ever gave who is still alive and working in lives today. Peace, love, faith in Jesus. He is the answer.

Biden’s heart COULD actually grow 3 sizes this year. After all, he had the covid vaccine (or so he claims).

Couldn’t tell by the election , America wants more of the same . Slick use to say elections have consequences. Church if anyone had a backbone could reject him as a follower of God then he would be just someone with no religion which is what he is anyway. The energy sector if some leaders had a pair would push alternatives to the same old same old of dealing with countries that hate us , electric cars , Natural gas , E-85 liquid bio- fuel production . Guess best way is to let Mr. Webber say it this is enough!! I can and will do something about it .

The value of our dollars are falling causing the price of everything we purchase to go up. As the printing presses continue to churn out more dollars. The value of our money will continue to buy us less. Welcome to Biden’s world. As he said in the beginning. You will have nothing but you will be happy. Keep voting the way of the last election and one day soon none of us will have anything.

Biden has been the biggest deceiver of a potus I have ever seen. How can you not love this nation and yet destroy it every way you can imagine. Everything he has touched around the world he’s made a mess of. He’s not going to quit til the economy is completely ruined and everything evil he can think of will continue until 2024. And too many Republicans are of the same mindset. It’s time to pray for this nation like never before. I think what this man has ruined will take many years to restore. We’re in for a long haul

Even though the Grinch was cold and mean, he eventually understood the meaning of peace and love. However, Biden is so ice cold and depraved, he will never change his ways. Biden will hang onto his self-centered and greedy attitude, because he wants to destroy the MAGA patriots. Biden doesn’t understand the meaning of Christmas, and sadly, he never will. Biden makes the Grinch look like the humanitarian of the year.

It is so important that the king’s first Christmas Day is filmed at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor!

The there is a gentleman that has good Merry Christmas tidings for all!

The good tidings in the spirit of Christmas , that beholds evermore the joyousness that is Christmas – now and forever more!

(Doesn’t mean that such a Ire for the dunce has any meaning).

Happy Christmas to all!

Biden and it seems that his whole family are corrupt, communist. Biden is a traitor to his office and our country. His agenda is to destroy America backed by and paid for largely by the Chinese who he has taken huge amounts of money for personal gain.

What a hypocrite and self centered ass communist Joe Biden is! Communist Joe hides behind the catholic church when it is convenient for him, and then stands before the American people and never says a word about Jesus Christ in his Christmas lie to the American public!
I guess his hypocritical lying is too hard of a habit to break, even at Christmas!!

Biden didn’t steal it, we gave it to him and if we don’t get our act together we’ll give it to him again in 2024.

Donald Trump s first Presidential campaign rally in Phoenix. Donald Trump held his first campaign rally, since announcing his Republican candidacy for President, at the Phoenix Convention Center. The event was hosted by the Maricopa County Republican Party. Media outlets from all over the country converged in Phoenix to cover this event. Previously, Mr. Trump created a media firestorm with his comments about illegal immigration during his candidacy announcement. Thousands filled the north ballroom of the convention center to see Trump and hear him speak. The event was scheduled to be held at the Arizona Biltmore, but the requests for tickets were so great the event had to be moved to the larger venue. Opponents held a peaceful protest outside the center. Trump s slogan is Make America Great Again.
