Let’s take a step back and look at the three causes of inflation. In ye olden times, inflation referred only to the expansion (or inflation) of the money supply, but thanks to communist word magic, it now refers to the general rising of prices, which can be caused by things other than the expansion of the money supply.

Today we learned what Biden’s primary weapon will be leading up to the midterms: straight-up bullshit and propaganda that flies in the face of reality. They’re not even believable lies!

Biden’s disapproval numbers have gotten worse since yesterday according to the latest polls, so that’s not good. The Republicans have recovered and closed the gap with the Democrats, and the Democrats are only leading by 0.1%, which is a rounding error, on the generic ballot poll. The polls are moving in the wrong direction for Biden and the Democrats, so I fully expect Biden to prepare his next round of propaganda, manipulation, and bullshit. […]
