Tonight, the House Select Committee is going to try and take your mind off of inflation. It’s going to take your mind off of the fact that gasoline prices have been rising, like five cents a day over the past couple of days and now nationally is almost $5.00 a gallon (it’s $5.39 here in the desert!). And they are going to try and take your mind off of the fact that the US is literally a month away from going into a recession by definition (two straight quarters of negative growth in the Gross Domestic Product). And they are going to try and get your mind off of the fact there is still no end in sight to a baby formula shortage that the administration says they’ve been working around the clock on since February…of course, Biden didn’t find out about it until early April.
And they are going to do that by holding hearings on the January 6th protest at the Capitol in prime time and televise it. Already ABC and CBS signed on to cover it, and so have all of the cable news channels. That basically means that America will be doing something other than watching television on Thursday night. I mean, unless it’s something like the Nixon impreachment hearings back in the 1970’s, this is not close to “must see TV”!
And Democrats are already screaming that it’s not going to have a major difference come November. It’s a lame attempt at an issue that now most Americans don’t care a whit about. In fact, according to a recent NBC News poll, 55% say that Donald Trump was “only somewhat” or “not at all” responsible for the January 6th protest in which people stormed the Capitol. That means that even Democrats are saying that Trump didn’t have much, if anything to do with it.
And we are hearing more and more bantering about things from the administration that are just not true. For instance, Joe Biden, Jerome Powell, Janet Yellen, and a cast of characters ranging from Representatives to Senators are out there proclaiming that the economy is robust and in great shape! Now if that were the case, can anyone tell my addled mind how it is the economy could have possibly SHRUNK by 1.5% in the first quarter of this year? Can anyone tell me why it is that we’re seeing the worst bout of inflation since Jimmy Carter? Why is it that we have gas prices now at record, never before seen prices?
The reason for the above questions can be answered very simply by taking a page out of Bill Clinton’s playbook. If you tell a lie long enough, and repeat it loud enough, people will begin to believe it. But there is another part to that tactic. The people can’t be allowed to see the actual reality of what is happening. And that is what’s going on now in America. People are seeing that they need to look for alternatives for baby formula. They need to cut back on their summer vacations because the gas prices are more than double what they were under Donald Trump. They need to realize that we haven’t had inflation this bad for over 40 years. And yet, Democrats continue to spout off that everything is fine. And the fact that the House Select Committee looking into the January 6th protest is just an attempt to get you to look at the shiny coin, and keep your eyes off of what’s real.
We haven’t seen House or Senate hearings on the $6 billion in damages caused by Black Lives Matter. We haven’t seen people prosecuted for the 30 people that were killed during riots in Portland, or Seattle, or Minneapolis, or New York, or Los Angeles. But there are people sitting in jail today, that have been there for 19 months without a trial, without bail, without anything for a crime that they haven’t necessarily been charged with.
My overriding question to all of this is, are we going to start prosecuting Patrisse Cullors for the riots held by BLM? When is Hillary Clinton going to have to answer to the Durham Report? What about Hunter Biden? When will we see HIS hearings? Are the Republicans going to do to Merrick Garland what was done to William Barr? Will there be an impeachment vote on Garland for his failure to keep the Department of Justice non-partisan? What about the FBI, which has turned out to be nothing short of the Democrats’ police department? When are they going to get the justice that they deserve? It’s about time there was parity in politics…and so far all we are hearing from the Biden administration are lies.
The truth shall survive!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
