In today’s episode, I open with a reminder we are heading into a Father’s Day weekend. I say this same thing every year, “Any male can father a child, but it takes a man to be a dad.” I sincerely mean that. If even one man hears that and is inspired to re-engage with his children, then it’s worth repeating.
Next it’s time to start taking on the role of fact-checker for President Biden’s recent speech to the AFL-CIO about the state of our economy. For a guy who ran on the promise that the buck stops with him and he won’t run from his responsibilities, he sure know how to blame everyone else for the state of our union. His first big lie is in trying to make us believe inflation is worse around the world and his policies are why the US is weathering the storm. It’s actually the opposite. The US has just about the highest rate of inflation over most of Western Europe and Canada.
President Biden continues to blame President Putin for the price hikes here in the US. The fact remains, even NPR reported that the United States saw inflation increase 400% under Biden between 2019 to 2021. For those who don’t remember, Putin did not roll into Ukraine until March of 2022.
As we mentioned on yesterday’s show, the White House is blaming oil companies, calling out “excessive” profits and refusing to increase output. The reality is it’s Biden’s own policies that have disrupted the energy sector. The American Petroleum Institute issued a list of 10 steps Biden could take to reduce supply disruptions, including ending obstruction of permitting on natural gas projects, lifting development restrictions on federal lands and water and ending Trump-era (yes, Trump) steel tariffs.
We know Biden doesn’t like to take any personal responsibility for all of his failures. It makes him angry when he’s questioned about reckless spending. He rant that he’s sick and tired of the lie that reckless spending is to blame for inflation. Yet, in November of 2021, when he was looking to blame inflation on something, decided to use the supply chain issue. What’s interesting about it, he literally said, “What happens if there’s nothing to buy and you got more money to compete for getting [goods]? It creates a real problem.” What problem might he be suggesting? Could it be...inflation?! Duh!
And the biggest whopper in his speech earlier this week to the AFL-CIO was how he plans to fight US food price hikes. His plan is to build a network of grain silos along Western Ukraine and Eastern Poland. I’m not kidding. The big answer to looming food shortages is to build silos, which won’t be up in time to do anything.
While they continue to wage war on the energy sector, which Ron DeSantis summarizes beautifully, we have a story produced on Good Morning America warning us that 2/3 of the country may experience rolling blackouts.
With all of this pulling Democrat polling further and further down the toilet, MSNBC’s Cornell Belcher has decided the only winning message is to "scare the hell out of" Democrat voters. It’s a bold plan, but I think most Americans are already scared about letting the Geriatric-in-Chief continue down the path of the ruination of our country.
